If he hadnt missed a straightforward touchline tackle or given away an incredibly stupid penalty, the series would have been, on serious reflection, ours. Forget claims of Bok thuggery now. This was a tour of absolute excellence from both sides Ogara apart. Phil, EC4 HOW is it that Chelsea manage to find a bottomless pit of hilarious coaches? We thought Mourinho couldnt be bettered, but step forward Carlo Ancelotti with his rib-cracking I like to joke in the press conference line. Cant wait to witness the mans humour wehen Burnley win 3-0 at the Bridge! Don21 IT was Real-ity TV gone mad 80,000 lunatic Madrid fans paying homage to a bloke who wears even more fake tan than Peter Andre. Thank God hes gone. GoFar True Blue: John Obi Mikel is set for a new deal which will put him among Chelseas top earners With a God and a wink, its Ron NEW kit, same old routine. He kissed the badge, strutted like a peacock and gave that brilliant-white toothy grin as he winked at an adoring crowd. Yes, Ron had arrived, and for reasons best known to themselves, 80,000 people thought it was worth packing the Bernabeu to see 80m-man Cristiano Ronaldo unveiled as Real Madrids new No9. (Sorry Ron, a bloke called Raul has the No7 you wanted). But it didnt quite all go according to plan. Minutes into the adoration ceremony the excitement all became too much for some fans, who stormed onto the pitch hoping to touch their idol. Security guards wrestled them to the ground as our hero dived (what else?) for cover, escorted by an attractive female entourage. I felt the love of the people, said Ron, Im happy to be the most expensive player in the history of football. Yep, humble as ever. I AM struck dumb that anyone can say Freddie is finished. 2009 will be his and our series. This bloke is a talisman. His record speaks for itself. Please dont compare Broad to Freddie. Jim ANYONE else glad that Wimbledon is finished? Bring on a proper game. Come on England, get stuck into the convicts! Barmy Army, N1 PROUD AUSSIE (L&B 06/09) thanks for taking the bait, you just won me a tenner to throw a few shrimps on my barbie cos I bet I could wind you guys up easy and Im not even a Brit! Murf, SW11 SO remind me, why is it the greatest sporting contest between England and Australia is taking place in Wales? Is it really so that Katherine Jenkins can sing that dreadful song again? Macca ASHES to Ashes, dust to dust, Brett Lees knackered so you Aussies are bust GoFredGo GRAHAM may well know his Onions but Steves the one who can really do the Aussies Harm-ison. Lets hope he has a chance to be involved at some stage. Neil, NW4 Sir Alex lands 8m Obertan BORDEAUX midfielder Gabriel Obertan passed his medical at Old Trafford yesterday and will sign for Manchester United today. The 20-year-old, who can play in a central midfield role or up front is regarded as one of Frances hottest prospects, will move for 8m and seal a four-year contract. He is due to train with his new team-mates at Carrington this morning. Chelsea, Arsenal and Inter Milan were all monitoring the youngster before his move to the champions. Hull strike Zamora deal with Fulham HULL CITY chairman Paul Duffen has struck a deal with Fulham to sign Bobby Zamora. The Tigers have agreed to sign Zamora -- nicknamed Bobatov at Craven Cottage -- in a 2m deal should Fulham manager Roy Hodgson find a replacement. Zamora, 28, is one of six strikers Tigers manager Phil Brown has been chasing since season. The Tigers are still hoping to land Fraizer Campbell, Marc Antoine- Fortune and Marlon Harewood after losing out on Michael Owen, who signed for Manchester United. Duffen told BBC Humberside: We have an understanding with Fulham but nothing will happen unless they get a striker in. The Tigers have had a 6m bid accepted by Manchester United for Campbell, 21, and have discussed personal terms. He is on holiday until 16 July following his involvement in the Euro Under-21 Championship and Hull are not expecting a decision from the youngster until then. AC Nancy striker Fortune is mulling over an offer from Celtic.
