I thought that silver strip looked familiar. Maybe they're hoping it'll bring them the success they had in the 80's. You Reds are long overdue a championship that's for sure.

BDB, I see you also let Danny Guthrie go to Newcastle. I thought he looked pretty sharp at Bolton last season.

Oh, and are you the one that rtuns the EPL Fantasy League? Yahoo have it up and running for next season and I didn't know if you were the main guy who gets the ball rolling.

Say it ain't so!

I really hope Keane doesn't head to Anfield, and with Berbatov possibly l;eaving this summer that means Ramos has got to bring in some serious quality for us Spurs fans.

Spurs are a selling club, and yup Berbatov to United

28M supposed for Berbatov
up to 20M for Keane, on one of the liverpool forums we have a real good source, he's one of Gerrard's best friends, so he gives us snippets..

Don't get my hopes up of seeing EPL in HD!!!! Next thing you'll tell me is that FSC will have competent non-annoying announcers.

Keane in Liverpool after his medical.



Deal is done, just has to be officially announced, and see him with a scarf raised over his head.

Supposed to get the Number 11 shirt.

Not happy with this at all. Just been confirmed - total transfer fee involved will be 20.3 GBP. I just prey that we keep hold of Berbatov and bring in another quality striker to play along side him - maybe E'to or David Villa, both of them seem keen.

9 days!

Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed he will remain at Manchester United for another season following showdown talks with manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The Portugal winger, who has been a high-profile transfer target for Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer, said: 'I will remain with Manchester United for at least another ye

I was watching Sky this morning and their "INSIDER" reporter was in studio and he was saying Barry will be a Liverpool player by the weekend. He's not often wrong. That being said, I don't really fancy having him, especially at that price.

No surprise there with the Charity Shield.

Neither team looked like they really wnated to take the game, although United looked the better of the 2.

Understandable as they probably wanted to avoid injuries. And if it had been a proper league game then Tevez might have seen red for that grab on Hreidarrsson.

Roll on next week where they have Everton v Blackburn, Sunderland v Liverpool and West Ham v Wigan (tape delay) on Saturday and Man United v Newcastle on Sunday.
