David James moves to Bristol City :O

Quite surprised by that. Quite a coup for City. Unlucky Septic  :wave:

Mark hughes is Fulham's new manager. Think that is a more than decent appointment. Hopefully he can build on Roy's success and ensure they retain a few of their key players from last season.

Think so too Manc, he was disgracefully treated by Man City.  The Fiver had quite a good bit on him yesterday:

Quote
Almost everywhere he has been, Mark Hughes has commanded respect. On the pitch, where even opponents couldn't help but admire his formidable blend of combativeness and finesse; in Wales and Blackeye Rovers, where he transformed threadbare outfits into robust ensembles; in the press room, where, throughout his stint at Manchester City in particular, even the most jealous hacks appreciated his intelligence and dignity in the face of questions so loaded they probably went on to chuck TV sets out of hotel windows or drown in swimming pools of their own vomit; and on the burger phone-owning Home and Away star lookalike circuit, where he has been earning rave reviews since being ushered out of Eastlands 221 days ago.

Pretty much the only place where Hughes has not been respected, in fact, was in the City dressing room, where certain divas openly scoffed at his attempts to get them to actually justify their humongous wages and strops. That does not fully explain his failure at City he must bear much of the blame himself, notably for a slew of spectacularly ill-advised purchases (a chronically crocked Roque Santa Cruz for £17.5m? No wonder Hughes is still a hero at Blackeye), persistent defensive knack, and some uncharacteristically unbalanced tactics towards the end of his reign but there is no doubt that some of the City players were about as easy to work with as a whiskey-and-bleach-induced hangover. Happily for Hughes, that is not a problem with which he is likely to have to contend in his new job: for he is about to be appointed as manager of Fulham, a stable club with players who are as diligent as they are talented.

Having inherited such a squad, been spared the task of blazing a trail to Big Vase final again and promised enough resources to make a couple of quick recruits (starting with Craig Bellamy, it says here), there is no obvious reason why Hughes should not replicate his achievements at Blackeye and push Fulham beyond the 12th place in which they finished last season. Of course, if the Blackeye model is anything to go by, they almost certainly won't retain their spot at the top of the Fair Play league.

Sami Khedira has signed for Real Madrid for £12.5m from Stuttgart.  Good signing for Real I reckon.

Agreed.

Reckon Hughes will be successful at Fulham too if he gets a few bodies in. Got well and truly done at City, not a big enough name for the new owners. I expect the current boss to get the dunt much as these moneybags appointments end up.

He had his moments...well one

I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

From BBC gossip column today

Rangers are lining up a bid for Plymouth defender Reda Johnson, who rejected an offer from Aberdeen last summer. (Scotland on Sunday)

Never knew he had started.

Abysmal footballer.

Doesn't he have a one in three record for every other club he's played for?









Which only goes to show that playing for Dutd and Hearts truly is a step down in terms of level of ability required.

I think he does actually, he also isn't as old as I used to think he was.

Remember him playing against us for Dundee, must have been 93/94, in the league cup at Dens Park and it went to extra time after we got a late equalizer, and he scored at our end in extra time and he gave it big licks in front of us after it.  I was amazed to find out later that he was actually a Dons fan.

Apparently Killie have offered a deal to ex Liverpool midfielder Mo Sissoko.  :o

That'd be some signing. I remember being disgruntled when he was sold on from Liverpool. He must be blind or have 3 broken legs now so even consider signing for that lot.

I see St. Johnstone are close to completing a deal with Peter Enckelman. Not a bad signing for them if it goes through.
