I love how Owen doesn't realize that at Man Utd he was the equivalent of buying an Asian player from Holland to sell shirts in China and Japan.

I'm curious about the Man Utd players likely to get kicked out. I can see Anderson going - and probably not to a British club where he'll no doubt turn back into the attacking midfielder he used to apparently be. Ferguson has a tendency to clear out players like Carrick so I'd be a touch worried if I was him. I think Nani is off to make some money. And Berbatov is off - and not to Everton sorry mate.

Liverpool are apparently in talks with Roberto Martinez now. Oh dear.

I saw that yesterday.. just as a replacement until they find someone permanent though, right?

I honestly think Owen didn't care.. afterall the players usually make something from every shirt sold with their name on it. He's too busy with golf and his bloody racehorse. Remember where he originated from.

Anderson, yeah I could see that. He'd do well in europe or even in Argentina or Brazil. He'd need decent wages though, I could almost see him going to Spurs or Chelski.
Carrick, I think will stay, Ferguson likes him.
Nani.. not sure about that.
Berbatov is definitely off. Who knows where, but with the goal tally from 2010-2012, I'd think that somebody would want him..

I still wonder about Tevez, and whether City will have the sense to get rid of the wanker?

Apparently they're also talking to Alan Pardew (why on earth would he want to leave the Magpies, to go to Anfield??) and Villas-Boas

I saw AVB mentioned too, one site was suggesting that he's favourite for it. Surely Pardue wouldn't be bloody silly enough to go to Anfield would he? Not after what he's achieved with Newcastle this year... it would be pointless.

Well he wouldn't have to work for Mike Ashley. Plus if Newcastle sell all their players again he'll be back at square one. Not really sure I'd want him at Liverpool but then I guess beggars can't be choosers.

Apparently City have added Zlatan and Llorente to their list of every other striker under the Sun to their poaching list.

Yes but is his agent in Harry's clique? If not it's a no go. No brown bag = no deal.

Martinez is a good manager. Though you would have thought he'd be more ambitious

He's worked miracles at Wigan and his team plays attractive football.

To win a league title...which he did. So he has one more than Stevie G!

Isn't it Sunderland now? We need a new feeder club. Things haven't been the same since Leeds were relegated.

Carrick has been shit for 3 years now, Anderson had 5 minutes a season where he looked ok and Nani should disappear up his own backside. I am still scratching my head about Berbatov - poor sod. Rio's only playing because Vidic is injured, Evra must be getting nervous - he's looked average all season. Valencia, Rooney, Scholes, Giggs and De Gea are probably the only ones who are confident of being there next year. Maybe Young too - only because Fergie needs 5 penalties a season or his heart explodes.

I saw a tweet this morning saying they might as well pick Ken Dodd - so then they wouldn't need to buy a new tracksuit.

Along with everyone else. It's going to mean every 3rd rate player is now going to be sold for 10 times their actual worth and earning £150k a week. Surely the UEFA rules will stop this? Or am I being naive? They can have Nani for £80m if we can get Aguero, Kompany and Balotelli in return.

I'd like to see Balotelli play for United. This year was devoid of amusement.

I'm unclear on how these fair play rules will help anything if they allow owners to use sister companies as sponsors, won't that just result in them sponsoring a new badge on their training kit every time they want to bring the books back in line?

I'd take him at Arsenal. He could play behind Van Persie and Podolski.

It's saying something about Liverpool's 'demise' when the manager of Swansea won't even speak to them about the job.
