Despite Manchester United's lack of depth in central midfield, Darron "with an 'o' " Gibson has been shipped off to Everton, for a reported fee of £1million. The Irishman's four and a half year deal with the Toffees comes after not long after the Republic of Ireland midfielder was fined by Sir Alex Ferguson, after a Boxing Day night out with team-mates Wayne Rooney and Jonny Evans had left the players unfit for training for the following morning.

Ryo Miyaichi sets up Ivan Klasnic's winner. Nice bit of invention for the Arsenal winger on loan to the Wanderers. Former Red Bulls defender Tim Ream set up Bolton's first goal floating in a beautifully hung cross from the left which Darren Pratley was able to get his head on ahead of former Arsenal left back Armand Traore.

Looks good in blue? Nah....

The way it's going, you would think that we're now in June and the European Championship is upon us. Why? Have you not seen all the Arsenal related news having to do with transfers and how much money Arsene Wenger will be allowed to spend?

So what if…. Where would Arsenal be if technology had been used to correct ref errors this season?

A Year on the Liverpool Offside: Bigger Than Any One Player

The Offside - Liverpool at related • 0 views

There was hope. Hope in Dalglish's return. Hope in Suarez' arrival. Hope in the introduction of a more pleasing brand of football. And then, in a moment, it seemed to have all been ripped away.

People talked about the club being bigger than any one player, and they rationalised that things would be alright given that that particular player hadn't really made much of a contribution to any kind of success over the previous eighteen months.

Back in the nineties teams would travel to Anfield with one plan in mind: that of stopping Steve McManaman. The thinking was that if they managed this then they were well on their way to getting something out of the game. It wasn't a tactic that worked as much as its reputation suggested yet it worked often enough for it to continue being used.

It seems club programmes in the SPL might be about to endure a rather brutal re-invention.

The league, in its new found spirit of consultation, is canvassing opinion on the future of individual club programmes.

The endgame might see the disappearance of programmes as we know them and the advent of a league-wide SPL matchday magazine.

More Viggo Mortensen: Simeone would give Mourinho a good kicking

Lets face it. The actor who played Aragorn is not a fan of the Real Madrid manager. He was in Madrid to promote his new film and he took time off to say what he thought of Jose Mourinho who has had his share of run ins with the milder mannered Pep Guardiola and Tito Vilanova but would never do the same with Diego Simeone.

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea

One point from six now, and yet we remain in charge of our own destiny – just about – thanks to our twelfth man, ‘results elsewhere'. God bless Results Elsewhere and all who sail in her!

That our closest rivals now – or at least, for now – are not from London but from Newcastle will perhaps be as much as surprise to them as it is to everyone else.

Blast, and other unseemly vituperations. Apparently armed with a game-plan to avoid, at all costs, ever stringing together more than three passes, our heroes stuck to the drill fairly resolutely throughout, and it's two points a-begging, faster than you can say "someone track that Ba fellow, he's making a late run into the area".

At last! Claude Puel having finally received his letter of dismissal, will probably move south, to Spain... or wherever. What matters now is that the club finally announce today what had been rumoured for several weeks now : Rémi Garde is our new coach.

With this nomination, the club will now be able to fully devote themselves to the reconstruction of a squad that should be amputated by some of their best elements : Jeremy Toulalan being gone, the likes of Bastos, Cissokho, possibly Kallström, Ederson and pretty much anyone who's not deemed absolutely untransferable.

That was painful. Fulham were excellent, but so bad were Birmingham that the victory seemed almost cruel.

Why should I care? I think it's that about a year ago Birmingham and Fulham seemed so similar: defensively very sound, occasionally prone to lack of invention, but good enough to win enough games to stay in the league.

The journey from cause celebre to forgotten man took nine months. Last summer, as England exited the World Cup with a desperate lack of invention, Joe Cole assumed the role of the overlooked saviour.

Ok say Pele and Cantona hit the Jalan Besar Stadium yesterday. I rolled up at the registration desk and given a sticker which I was told to display in a prominent place...but not that prominent place. Regretfully I stuck it on my beergut and still can't get the bugger off.
I was then escorted upstairs, in case I didn't know the way.
