Stroppy striker to sign for Man Utd ‘within 24 hours’

Also appearing on a computer near you…

Dimitar Berbatov to Manchester Utd

Yesterday evening, The Spoiler correctly predicted that Valencia’s refusal to sell David Silva to Man United would force Sir Alex Ferguson to up his Dimitar Berbatov bid. Reports today suggest that the Red Devils have thrust £28 million in Spurs’ direction. Will Spurs cave in and leave themselves open to ‘feeder club’ jibes again this close to kick-off? The latest whispers suggest Juande Ramos will be desperately trying to fill the gaping Bulgarian-shaped hole in his strikeforce within the next 24 hours.

James Milner to Aston Villa
A week ago Aston Villa looked to be in trouble. Martin O’Neill had all but conceded defeat in the Gareth Barry saga and nobody new was arriving. With Nicky Shorey, Luke Young and Carlos Cuellar, however, the skies are blue, the sun is shining, Barry is still there and Milner is ready to join.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter:
Villa are signalling their intent to improve further on last season

Anton’s off again

Despite Anton Ferdinand saying he has no desire to leave and Alan Curbishley announcing that the club have no intention of losing the defender, The Daily Mirror are adamant he is off and claim he has rejected a new contract. Where he is going, however, remains a mystery, although Villa and Newcastle have been rumoured to be interested.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter:
Will probably stay put

Claudio Pizarro staying put

Poor Peruvian striker Pizarro faces the daunting prospect of staying at Chelsea and keeping his tag as the guy who scores even less than Andriy Shevchenko after Hull boss Phil Brown admitted it looked like the club were priced out of a move.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter:
Chelsea don’t want him so an arrangement may be reached

    This is a FOOTBALL site so what do you think they are more likely to speak about:

    a) The fact the manager of the Premier League and Champions League winners has admitted he wants another striker when the season starts in three days.


    b) Someone getting stabbed and the state of the English language, which you are clearly doing a good enough job maintaining all on your own.

    Muddy, you are indeed proof that the English Language is as you put it useless!

    If you can’t be bothered to type because or for and substitute for cz and 4, then you my friend are a part of the problem!

    Get a grip on your life and get a job!
