Let’s get this one out of the way now: I have Barcelona winning today 3-1. Messi scores twice, Berba scores for United, and La Liga prevails again. Grrr. I know it’s rough, but it’s gonna happen I think. The only way United wins is if Vidic plays out of his freakin mind, which he’s well capable of doing.
Now, on to the clearly more important news of note:
-According to HammyEnd, Sheffield United rejected a “substantial Fulham offer” for young striker Jordan Slew. The 18 year old English playmaker has 2 goals in 8 matches this season for the Blades. 5 of those 8 matches were starts.
-Fulham are apparently very interested in Benefica midfielder Felipe Menezes, according to his agent Luiz Carlini:
“Fulham are an interested club which I’ve learned already. Let’s see. We have already been contacted by several clubs, but England would be an interesting option.”
The 23 year old has one goal in 16 matches this season in all competitions. Fulham are thought to want him on a 1-year loan with an option to buy at the end.
-Finally, a completely speculative article places recently released Aston Villa midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker in Craven Cottage. The former West Brom player moved to Villa Park for 8.5 million in 2007, and has has a tough time breaking in to the starting XI after being dropped earlier this year due to a spat with then manager Martin O’Neill. Your thoughts? It would be a free transfer to grab the 27 year old since he was released a few days ago.
