    That's what I feared - what is GIMH like if Tranmere have a bad trot? - I can imagine morose might be an understatement

    Er, we signed Fellaini for 15mil last summer, and were bidding close to 18mil for Moutinho.

    The van der Meyde off-loading should help us a bit in the capture of Owen, though. He'd better not be asking for more than 50k considering his record in the past couple of seasons.

    For the first time I think Liverpool actually have a chance next year although I hope they fail, Think it is going to be very close between the top 4 next season and I really can't predict a winner. Think Arsenal will improve. Hull, Burnley and Wolves for the drop although would like one of those two to stay up but lost all sympathy for Hull.
    As for league 1 I think Brentford will stay up relatively comfortably, would be happy with mid-table.

    Did indeed, but apart from Fellaini, who else did Everton actually splash some cash on? IIRC the 3/4 other players brought in were either loans or free transfers. The sale of Andy Johnson is what funded the Fellaini bid.

    Have you seen his 34-page brochure?

    Were it not for an unhappy spell at Real Madrid and two injury-scarred years at Newcastle, he would be spoken about in the same breath as Torres and Ronaldo and valued in the priceless figures that only match-winning goalscorers ever justify.

    Owen "is about to make the biggest decision of his football career", and explains that the 29-year-old is "good looking" and "charismatic"."




    As for him going to Everton, I can't see it firstly due to his wage demands and secondly he doesn't fit in with the system they use. AJ worked as he tracked back and was a carthouse upfront that always put himself about, Owen does sweet FA. The Yak is back next season as well.

    Extremely harsh to blame him for that. Laughable even.

    Sky Sports News have now confirmed the appointment of Barnes. The club haven't, but that's to be expected, they are probably just getting round to confirming our final league position

    Anyway, I believe the reason for the strange managerial dealings at PP to be to do with administrative chnages. There are takeover rumours all over the place and whilst I don't believe some of the personnel that are being tipped (Fowler & McManaman) I definitely think there are new owners of some sort coming in. Sacking Moore was dramatic and odd to say the least, and appointing Barnes even stranger. McAteer is set to be his assistant, which I imagine is for lower-league knowledge. As much of a tit McAteer is, I've heard good things about his coaching.

    Dunno, it's not the appointment I'd have made (should have got Coppell ) but now that they are seemingly here then I've no choice but to get behind them. Got a hell of a job on their hands though. We've got no players.

    Edit, oh and yes he does have connections in the area. Lives on the peninsula, in fact

    Came in late, yes. Sticking around to oversee the rebuilding? No.

    Hopefully, without Ronaldo, we'll learn how to play football again. Wingers who like to pass and cross, strikers who feel the need to get into the penalty area once in a while. Become a team again rather than a one man show.

    Get Berbatov to stay up front, allow Rooney the right to roam without care, with a solid 4 anchored behind them (by solid, meaning no Anderson for at least 6 months untill he remembers what football is)

    Like it or not we need a left winger more than we need a right winger (though one of them wont hurt too, especially if Nani decides the only shoes of Ronaldo's he's stepping into are his pink slippers), depending if Hargreaves can find a kneecap or two, might need a holding midfielder.

    Oh and a keeper without Parkinsons would help (even the one with Tourettes could control himself better)
