Man Utd's woeful defending cries out for a veteran goalkeeper

This afternoon, I sat myself down to watch the Reading vs Man Utd game hoping to see a relaxing three points to extend United's lead at the top of the Barclay's Premier League. I was totally unprepared for what unfolded as seven goals were scored in the first 35 minutes, and as hard as United tried, they couldn't seem to give the game away and ended up eventual winners at 4-3.

Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque reluctantly confirmed the selection of a true striker in Fernando Torres and benched the in-form Cesc Fabregas. Amid scrutiny and doubt, the Chelsea forward quickly rewarded that decision by scoring twice in his nation's 4-0 rout of Ireland.

Torres took advantage of the Republic of Ireland's failure to clear the ball inside a crowded box in the opening minutes and struck powerfully to give the Spaniards a 1-0 advantage in the fourth minute.

It’s the final countdown: Summer transfer roundup

It's a little over 10 hours to go before the rumour mongers and speculation, erm, spasmos take themselves a much needed break. At least for a fortnight or so, then they'll be back with a vengeance, leading all the way up to the perennially underwhelming January window.

So, Liverpool upped their offer to £20m, Stewart Downing handed in a formal transfer request and there's not much more that needs saying. Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Stewie. Textbook no-brainer.

That's £8m more than we paid Middlesbrough two years ago, but represents a £14m profit in terms of "disposal of player's registration".
