Liverpool are going to splash a hell of a lot of cash if sources are to be believed upwards of £80m. Eden Hazard, Javier Martinez, Loic Remy and Keisuke Honda are the players being targeted while Dirk Kuyt, Alberto Aquilani, Fabio Aurelio, Jay Spearing, Joe Cole, Maxi Rodriguez, Brad Jones and Nathan Eccleston all face the chop as Liverpool look to cut the wage bill. Liverpool will surely need to get into the Champions League to secure these players signatures even if they do offer a lot of money. Loic Remy apparently wants to join the club and Comolli could convince Hazard as long as CL football is achieved.

Why would bristol city sack Derek mcciness, he is a young top quality manager that needs time to settle in and get some PERMANET SIGNINGS IN! not some loan guys that do nothing like chris wood. City trying to sign webster on loan from rangers. and in the summer kari arnason

Staff at Stockport County where today elated at the news Helen Foster Grimes was rejected at application stage. Staff had threatened to walk out should she have been offered any role at the club. Her CV was far from suitable a source has confirmed but also added it was more to do with real life knowledge of club staff working with her knowing her lack of capabilities and lack of business nouse.

The club look set to complete interviews in the coming week.

However does such a club on a small budget actually require a new CEO?

One staff member commented, Helen actually went on a forum for county fans saying that such a role was not paying very much so we shouldnt expect anyone of high calibre, yet then went on to apply for the job herself.

They finished off their comment by saying even if we wanted a tea lady her application would be again laughed at.

I thought Stuart Pearce would be
experimental with the England team.
One change. Fraizer Campbell who has
played less than 5 games since
returning from injury and the same lot.
No disprespect, he has scored some
awesome goals since returning.
However, it doesn't look 'experimental' to me.
For example, Grant Holt and Danny
Graham have scored 10 Prem goals each
this season. More than Danny Welbeck
and Darren Bent.
John Ruddy, Prem keeper, good form.
Rob Green, oldie that made a complete
pigs'ear of things at WC2010.
Time for change and then things may get
better rather than being insane. 'Doing
what you've always done and expecting
things to get better'.
Have a think about that.

Personally i think this should be the england team for the euros;


walker/richards jones cahill cole

gerrard parker wilshire(if fit)

sturridge rooney young

subs: ruddy, walker/richards, aoc, walcott, welbeck, milner, holt

Believable3 Unbelievable1

Cahill is a donkey, should be someone like lescott. And defoe should be on the bench instead of holt

Everyone else seems to be doing them so... My England team for Euro 2012:


Bench... Foster, Baines, Smalling, Rodwell or Wilshire(if fit), Walcott, Defoe/Rooney(when back from ban), Welbeck.

Time for Tranmere to beg to Lee Clarke to come and save us from relegation. Can't believe Huddersfield sacked such a young talented and inspirational manager such as him. Everyone at Prenton Park would give their right arm to have him and Terry Mac at the club. Probably couldn't afford them but we can dream can't we. Lee if you fancy coming to a club who would really appreciate your talents we would love to have you at Tranmere.

Ye he'd be alrite for you 15 games to go in lee clarks eyes thats 15 points! 15 draws! but LC wouldn't go to tranmere because he's no good at coaching or tactics he doesnt have the ability to change things when its not going right... LC just bought talented young players and threw at the promotion race he shouldbe a scout not a manager!
