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?

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
