Finnan passes medical

Irish international Steve Finnan, Espanyol’s last signing of the transfer window, underwent a medical examination this morning before joining up with the rest of Márquez’s squad. The player was subject to stringent checks at the Clinica Creu Blanca, despite having checked over fully before signing his contract on the 31st of August.

Finnan only arrived in Barcelona El Prat last night and was called straight up into the squad. This morning he missed training due to the medical tests but will be officially presented as a Perico this evening at 6pm at the Estadi Olímpic de Lluis Companys. His first training session will have to wait until tomorrow morning and only then will he train with his new team-mates.

The ex-Liverpool star has played in two matches since finalising his transfer to Espanyol, both games being with the Irish national team. Ireland beat troubled Georgia last Saturday 1-2 and drew 0-0 on Wednesday with Montenegro. In both games, the new Blanquiazul wingback started from the off but was substituted against Georgia in the 80th minute.

i wish for once in his life to go berserk about something. he just looks like he's been painted as a smiling face, a mask

got to give it to him: he knows hoe to highlight his eyes wearing that damn blue. come to thing about it he's been playing for every color in the book: white, red and now blue (yellow if you count liverpool's reserve kit)

That's what I thought, too. His mouth might be smiling, but his eyes aren't. *sigh* I feel so sorry for him. He shouldn't have been treated this way.

*LOL* Interesting! (Maybe he chose Espanyol so he would finally be able to wear blue? XD)
