For a mere $45 trillion Aussie dollars (or £28.1 trillion). These revelations after Robbie Fowler's claims Wayne was considering a move "down under". (You have to wonder if he thought it had something to do with women of the evening.)

This is obviously in good fun, but you can be damn sure one of the Glazer clan hopped right on the phone and asked "For reals?

On the 20th of June 2006 in Cologne, Germany, I was sat high behind the goal in the RheinEnergieStadion (then called simply 'The FIFA World Cup Stadium') when in the fourth minute, a figure crumpled to the ground. It was hard to see who it was from my unique vantage point, but the man sitting to my left immediately turned round and said 'any money it's Owen'.

With yet another exciting Premier League weekend in the books it's time to review this weekend's winners and losers.

Winners Robbie Keane

Robbie Keane emerges from this weekend as the biggest winner. The Tottenham striker has had a relatively quiet start to the season, oftentimes playing second fiddle to the red hot Jermain Defoe.

I don't know about the rest of you, but when it comes to sports, I'm a numbers guy. I love statistics! It could be as simple as how many points Manchester United is away from winning their fourth Premier League title in a row (that number should be three points lower after Wednesday, but Burnley really messed with that stat) or as complex as what Everton's home record is when Yakubu scores with his right foot opposed to his left.

Spurs Set for Another Blunder

The Tottenham faithful often wonder why their team cannot break into the top four in the Premier League. Before the Martin Jol era, they were told that they needed a great coach. After the arrival of Jol, it was believed that the squad needed bolstering. Once that was done, things got going - until blunders became the norm again at White Hart Lane.

The transfer rumor mill is in full force once again, and almost all of the rumors revolve around some up and coming Spanish club that goes by the name of Real Madrid (surely a rip-off of the MLS side Real Salt Lake). This time the rumors concern Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, who has a rumored price tag of just £1.

With the Premier League over for another season. Here are some of the things I noticed from the 08/09 campaign:

Like a bat out of Hull

Hull City were everyone's favorite to go straight back down this season. They seemed like a sweet little feel good story, content to have their moment in the big leagues before quickly sinking back to lower level obscurity where they could be patronized by football and non-football people alike for sounding like a thoroughly dull and uninspiring place to live.

After Liverpool faced an early FA Cup exit to crosstown rivals Everton last night, Liverpool fans were quick to harp about talismanic captain Steven Gerrard's injury. While there's no doubt that his injury hampered Liverpool's ability to win against Everton, Liverpool now face a battle to turn excuses into motivators.

Keane Offered a Life Line

Roy, before you get too excited, there still is no job offer on the table. Instead, the "other" Keane - Robbie - is being offered a life line. Teetering on the fringes of the first team, Robbie Keane hasn't enjoyed the best of times at Liverpool. Now, Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is suggesting that the Republic of Ireland striker could be heading back to White Hart Lane.

The Rest

Morning all, thankfully we'll have a press conference this morning and we can start looking forward to this weekend's game against Stoke – as much as you can look forward to a game against Stoke – simply so something other than Wojciech Szczesny's dad is the main story of the day.

You know things are slow when he's shooting his mouth off, and his comments, made without apparently even speaking to his son, won't really have done him much good.

The Wednesday Wonder: Robbie Keane

Premiership Talk Blog at related • 2 views

In what could be the most obvious Wednesday Wonder to date, Robbie Keane is this week's pick after his stunning performance on Saturday against Burnley. I'll admit that I've overlooked a hat-trick for the Wednesday Wonder before and picked somebody else, but there is something special about that fourth goal.
