West Ham will enter the race for West Brom's Jonny Evans at the end of the season, with Leicester and Everton also interested (Mirror)

Leicester and West Ham need to strengthen their centre back pairing and Everton are having trouble recruiting experienced taxi drivers :yikes:

Jack Wilshere is ready to walk away from the Emirates for free in the summer unless Arsenal significantly improve their current contract offer (Sun)

Wenger has offered to let him keep the club owned crutches to enable him to do so :-$

Southampton reportedly in talks with Mark Hughes to be their new manager !
Its only 2 months since he was sacked from Stoke after leaving them in the relegation zone.
Do these owners ever learn ?
So thats West Brom,Southampton and one other for the drop.....

The news that many Liverpool fans dreaded ....

"Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is prepared to stay and fight for his place at Anfield."

In truth its not unexpected as any move now is too late to influence the world cup selections and after the world cup there's nobody who is going to pay him anywhere near what he earns at Liverpool :-$

Ray Wilkins: Former England captain dies aged 61
http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/43644529

I had read the initial reports that he was seriously ill after suffering a suspected heart attack.
61 is far too young for a former top athlete, but it would appear that it was at least partially self induced after giving up the game.
Always looked calm & in control on the pitch though...

NOT A Rumour, But A FACT !!!!

Police officers injured as missiles thrown at Manchester City team bus outside Anfield ahead of Champions League clash
Merseyside Police have confirmed two officers were injured when projectiles were thrown towards the bus.....

Smoke bombs and flares were also let off and missiles, including bottles and cans, were thrown amid the chaotic scenes outside the ground before kick-off.

The driver's door of City's coach was smashed during the incident and it is understood a replacement was sent from Manchester.

Both Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool FC have issued apologies following the incident, while Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said they "didn't expect that" to happen.

Merseyside Police match commander, Superintendent Paul White, said: "We are aware that damage was caused to the Manchester City team bus as it approached Anfield stadium this evening ahead of the Liverpool v Manchester City match.

"Thankfully no-one on the bus was injured, but injuries were caused to two of our officers when projectiles were thrown towards the bus. The officers and stewards are there to protect the public and keep them safe.

"This behaviour by a number of people who threw bottles, cans and pyrotechnics towards the bus is completely unacceptable and we will conduct enquiries to identify who was responsible and bring them to justice.

We worked very closely with both clubs to ensure the safety of the public and the teams themselves, and it is disappointing to see that a number of people behaved in this appalling way."

Thousands of fans had lined Anfield Road two hours before kick-off to give Guardiola and his players a hot reception.

And the atmosphere had been vibrant before the coaches arrived - with a number of people climbing up lampposts, walls and road signs to catch a glimpse of the teams as they arrived.

But supporters then started to throw bottles and fireworks at the Manchester City coach as it arrived at Anfield.

A number of red flares were also let off, making visibility difficult as supporters lined the streets outside the stadium.

Liverpool arrived to a raucous welcome moments later.

A statement from LFC said: "The club condemns in the strongest possible terms the scenes which preceded our Champions League quarter-final, which resulted in damage being inflicted on the Manchester City team bus during their arrival at Anfield.

"We apologise unreservedly to Pep Guardiola, his players, staff and officials caught up in the incident.

"The behaviour of a number of individuals was completely unacceptable and the club will cooperate fully with the authorities to identify those responsible.

"The priority now is to establish the facts and offer Manchester City whatever support is necessary."

NO Possible EXCUSES For THIS !!! But THEY Will get away with it as USUAL.....Simply because it's Liverpool F.C !!!

Nice to see that Nepotism is still alive and well at Analfield :-&

"Liverpool are set to sign Steven Gerrard's cousin Bobby Duncan from Manchester City."

Members of the American branch of the supporters club, "The Rednecks" have given their full support to anything that "keeps it in the family"
