Reds Fall For Falcao
We've already heard how Chelsea are interested in signing Radamel Falcao, but now the Star tells us that Liverpool are planning a swoop for the Colombian, who flopped badly in his loan spell at Manchester United.

If you aren't one of the managers of the big boys this dream will also be an impossible reality. However for Mike Bassett, this becomes his reality.

Norwich started with a flourish, and quickly raced to the top of the table, proving right many of the pundits who had backed them for an immediate return to the Premier league following relegation last season.
Today is Justin Fashanu's birthday and he would have been 54 years of age had his life not ended in such sad circumstances in May 1998.
The fact there are still no openly gay players in the Premier League shows how much more needs to be done in football although with Robbie Rodgers lining out for LA Galaxy and former Aston Villa man ThomasHitzlsperger coming out last year, as well as Swedish player Anton Hysen declaring his homosexuality in 2011, things are (very) slowly moving in the right direction.
It all ended under a bit of a cloud when he ditchedthe club's team photo shoot andjoined Southampton, but there was a time when Norwich City fans used to gleefully chant "Moroccan All Over The World", boasting that midfield scrapper Youssef Safri was "better than Juninho" during the heady days of 2004/05.
The Fire arrived in the United Kingdom this morning after a seven hour delay due to weather.
