Here’s some other breaking news, thanks to daily newspapers, from the trashy Daily Star end of the spectrum, to the prawn sandwich Times end…

In a bid to scare off Man United and Liverpool, Gerard Houllier has popped a ridiculous £80million price tag on his number one winger, Ashley Young. A cunning move indeed, only it’s also one that might backfire.
