Reports earlier today were linking John Carew to Turkish giants Fenerbahce. The report says they will bid around £5million for the 30-year-old. Full article: John Carew Making A Turkey Of Himself?

Later his agent Flod says his player isn't going anywhere: Carew Going Nowhere - Yet

We did a snap poll on what you'd do with Carew: 52% were wrong saying extend his contract. Sorry, did I just say wrong, not what I meant at all! :o) Sell him in January if replaced 28%
Let him run down his contract 11% Sell him in Jan regardless 5% Sell him in the summer 4%

There is a report in the Sunday Mercury today by Mat Kendrick with quotes from Dwight Yorke. I know this will get slated by many but I have to admit, I still remember the great times and blank out the way it all ended. Sad thing is if he had stayed, we might have won the blinking league that year but as hard as it is to stay, his decision to move was vindicated, he did win everything with Man Utd. I know the kissing the badge to the Villa fans was a bad thing but then again, wasn't the abuse he received through the game?! Full article: Dwight Yorke On 'Beloved' Villa

Fieldy: James 'Milly' Milner has said he's enjoying life in the middle of the pitch, but knows he has a fair bit to learn about the position yet. Speaking on the Official Site Milner said that he hoped his midfield partnership with Stan would continue to bring results considering in two matches he's got two goals and two assists already, however he's happy to play where Monny wants him and says he's quite comfortable anywhere in the front six positions.
