Inspiring women, Dalglish to step in for Rafa, and more…

“Danielle! Danielle!… can you look inspiring?”

For those of you not invited, today was not just a typical Wednesday, it was also the day of the SHE Inspiring Women Awards – presumably an awards ceremony celebrating inspiring women. And inspiring they certainly were. Danielle Lloyd, Elen Rives, Tess Daly. Seriously, The Spoiler could go on.

Anyway, whilst inspirational women ate lunch and inspired one another, the world of serious football has continued to churn out stories. Here’s what we know today (thanks to the likes of The Mirror, The Mail, The Sun etc…):

With Juventus holding a metaphorical pen knife to Rafa’s throat, should the Spaniard suddenly have to up sticks and head off to sunny Italy, the whisper is that Kenny Dalglish would be happy to step in and steady the rocking boat. Apparently, he doesn’t fancy the job full time, but you never really know now do you? Just imagine – Kenny back at Liverpool. What a treat.

Elsewhere in the North, Craig Bellamy has been overheard yapping about Carlos Tevez. He said this:

“Carlos is the one who epitomises what Manchester City should be all about.”

“He is a warrior.”

“For me, it’s not a question of if he stays. He has to stay. It’s as simple as that.”

In transfer news, the big story is that Chelsea have decided to attempt to create the dream pairing of Drogba and Torres for the next campaign. News that might come as something of a knuckle to the solar plexus for Anelka who is reportedly just wetting the ink to sign a contract extension until 2013.

And Joe Cole might be off to West Ham.

Or, then again, he might not be.

Oh, and Owen Hargreaves (remember him?) has told everyone to watch out next season, because HE’LL BE BACK. Sent shudders all around the Premier League, that one.

    Dalglish taking over from Rafa would be magical. I don’t think Torres will leave this summer, maybe next summer if things don’t pick up for us…
