What better way to start a ridiculous thread than with this: Kieron Dyer gets a one year extension.

Racist and killer Emre is off to Atletico Madrid to join up with Arda, perhaps things have got more ridiculous already.

If anyone is interested in an extremely well informed and realiable source for this kind of thing, and is a twitter user, I can suggest following Carlo Laudisa . Carlo is chief transfer news correspondant for La Gazzetta dello Sport, and as such knows everybody who is anybody in the shady world of the market in europe. He's also a bloody nice bloke, what what.

Spurs supposedly had Jan Verhtonghen and Eden Hazard tied up until Chelsea won the CL. Now they are getting cold feet and Bale and Modric are are getting restless.

Sell them if they want to go is my response.

Some football writer on Radio 5 last night was confidently predicting Eden Hazard will go to Man United for £32m.

I think ESPN erroneously reported that he'd signed for United yesterday afternoon.

He plays for Crewe Alexandra. No official word yet that United have signed him but suspect it won't be long.

Nick Powell is apparently an England U18 midfielder at Crewe with 55 games in League 2 under his belt.

I think George Osborne must have raised the Stupid Tax Surplus on English footballers in the last budget.

A lot (well, about 4) of the kids I coach in cricket are also in the Crewe Alex academy. According to what they told me at last night's game Powell signed at the end of last week. The news wasn't supposed to leak out until after the play-offs.

Powell is a "strange kid" by all accounts, a "stone-loner", he has no friends in or out of football.

We won by 17 runs, btw.

In De Telegraaf yesterday, Jan Verthongen said that Spurs is the only club he's interested in joining.

Is he any good though, what type of a defender is he?
We need a clever, younger, less injury-prone version of Gallas\King to play alongsode Kaboul\Dawson.

A fortunate guy. At two years his junior, fellow injury-plagued England nearly man Darius Vassell has just been informed that he's surplus to Leicester City's requirements.

Why would no-one tackle him in that vid?

Because none of the Gillingham defence expected him to shoot from there. You can almost see the thought processes.

Yes, but that's probably because the slightly-bonkers-fee season started early at Filbert St; Leicester signed Jamie Vardy from Conference Champions, Fleetwood Town, last week for at least £1m. I can't think of any non-league player that's gone for anywhere near that fee previously.
