Ahead of the Chelsea game on Saturday Mancini has a gentle dig at the mentality of some of his players, saying that for some, "their only target is their next day off". Wonder who he could possibly mean.
I'm starting to like Mancini, think he still has a lot to learn about the Prem, but he clearly takes no shit from his players, which is what they need with that dressing room.
Arsenal set to announce record profits today, 'can't put a balance sheet in a tropy cabinet' etc.
Wenger says Allardyce and Pulis should sit down and shut up (they won't).
Cesc might be fit for the Chelsea game, but probably won't be. Lampard might not be fit, but probably will be.
Fergie has blamed the press attention for Rooney being a bit rubbish at the moment. Expect a spate of bannings from the Old Trafford press room if anyone pushes him on that. By Xmas it will just be him and Gabriel Clarke.
Palermo won at Juve for the third year running, 3-1 though Juve should have had a pen and Del Piero hit the bar at 1-0. That Pastore kid who's being linked with City looks well good. Who the hell is Palermo's South American scout?
Steve Harper is out for 3 months with his shoulder problem. Can Newcastle loan Given as has been suggested? Thought the window was closed and can't see how this qualifies as an emergency.
