Ex-Man Utd star Wilkins urges Evans to reject Man City

Image
Former Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins is urging West Brom captain Jonny Evans to resist a move to Manchester City.
Wilkins believes Evans - another ex-Red - is better off staying at West Brom. He told talkSPORT: “I really hope Jonny Evans does not move. “At Man City, he could play. At West Brom, he will play. “If I am on £80,000-a-week and they [City] say I will double your money, I probably wouldn't go. What more money do I need if I have been on that since I was 20? “Jonny Evans wants to play football. He has been at West Brom for two or three years now and has been absolutely outstanding. Do West Brom need the £30million? No, they don't – not in this Premier League world. “You can't stop him but, if I was Jonny, I would say I have got the house, this and that sorted, what do I want to do for the next six years of my life - sit there getting splinters on my backside or playing football?"

Barcelona target Coutinho updates pals on Liverpool future

Image
Philippe Coutinho doesn't expect to return to Liverpool, it is being claimed in Barcelona.
Sport says the midfielder has told friends he is confident of Barca and Liverpool agreeing on a fee while he's away with Brazil for their World Cup qualifiers. Coutinho, who has not played so far this season, stunned Liverpool fans by taking part in full-scale training with Tite's squad yesterday. It's suggested Barca are prepared to go to €160m to convince Liverpool to finally cash in on the midfielder. And Coutinho has told confidants he is confident his time with Liverpool is now over.

Jamie Carragher brands Arsenal cowards after being humiliated at Liverpool

Image
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has again branded Arsenal players "cowards" after their thrashing at Anfield.
Carragher was left stunned by the dismal Arsenal performance - and didn't hold back in his criticism. Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: "Last season I called them cowards and I got a lot of criticism saying that I was too strong, 'You can't say that on TV'. "I'll say it again... cowards!" On Wenger, he added: "The board bottled the decision over this summer. "They were terrified of moving the manager on, who has been a legend and a great success there. "There had to be a change and they bottled it." Click Here For News Source

Real Madrid midfielder Kovacic eager to join Liverpool

Image
Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic is eager to join Liverpool, it has been revealed.
Diario Gol says Kovacic has verbally agreed to join Liverpool.
The Real Madrid star started less than half of his side's games in La Liga last season and is struggling to force his way into Zinedine Zidane's thinking this time around.
Kovacic, 23, could have been seen as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho if he had moved to Barcelona over the summer - but that deal appears to be off.
He has spoken to Liverpool about the possibility of joining and would be happy to join. However, the fact Coutinho is set to stay at Anfield could put a blocker on the deal. Click Here To Continue ...

TALKING TACTICS: Man Utd boss Mourinho shows growth; Chelsea defence back to their best; Spurs lacking creativity

Image
The second round of Premier League fixtures didn't quite live up to the extraordinary goals tally of the opening weekend, but nevertheless this was a very interesting weekend tactically; August is always the best month for spotting new trends developing across the Premier League.
Here are three things we learned from the action:
1) Mourinho shows he has turned a corner by fielding two roaming playmakers away from home Manchester United's new-found ability to dominate games has largely been attributed to Nemanja Matic's commanding presence in midfield and the Serbian's effect on Paul Pogba, but in fact, it is a tactical recalibration by Jose Mourinho – from cautious and rigid to bold and creative – that has made the biggest difference.
For the second successive match, Mourinho fielded both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata, ostensibly playing in central attacking midfield and right wing respectively. But neither player stuck to their base position in the 4-2-3-1, instead …

Man City manager Guardiola upset about Monday night games

Image
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that he is not a fan of Monday night games.
City will be squaring off against Everton at the Etihad Stadium on Monday and ahead of the clash, Guardiola has stated that he does not prefer such fixtures as it means that his side have to play after everyone is finished with their respective matches. Guardiola said: "I don't like to play Monday, the last game, when everybody is done and you play. I don't like that, but it is what it is.
"I'm considering an opponent like Everton will be tough but I expect a good game - and to win the game, of course."  Click Here To continue

Man Utd boss Mourinho: Too soon to talk title favourites

Image
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed talk of his team being early season title favorites.
His side followed up their opening day hammering of West Ham with another 4-0 victory, this time away at Swansea City, to strengthen their early lead at the top of the table. “I prefer to say that we started last season with two matches, six points, and we finished sixth," said Mourinho. “Two matches are not the end of the world for people that lose, and it's not paradise for people who win. “I am happy, of course, and the quality of the performances gives me even more confidence."

Barcelona pull back from Coutinho pursuit to focus on Di Maria

Image
Barcelona are pulling back from their pursuit of Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho.
El Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona's chances of signing the Brazilian are now fast diminishing. The report suggests Barcelona are close to giving up on Coutinho and have other targets in mind. In addition to PSG winger Angel Di Maria, Barcelona are also keen on Jean Seri. Seri, who has been tracked by both Arsenal and Liverpool, has a €40 million (£36.5million) release clause in his Nice contract.  Click Here To Continue.....

Andres Iniesta 'considering his future' at Barcelona

Image
Barcelona mainstay midfielder, Andres Iniesta admitted that he began to doubt his future at the club he defended since still in junior level.

Known as one of the main pillars of Barca's success in the last decade, Iniesta has yet to extend his contract which will end at the end of the season.

Iniesta who now turns 33 years old states that he started thinking about his future at the club. He hinted that his era at the Blaugrana would be over soon.

"Now, I have not signed a new contract yet, I feel a lot of strange feelings for the first time, but I think it's normal," Iniesta said in an interview with El Pais.

"This is a scenario that, maybe three years ago I never imagined.Say sometimes I wonder about my future when before I did not do it," he continued.

A few days ago Barca must recognize the excellence of the eternal rival, with 1-5 aggregate score in the Supercopa de Espana game. Click Here to Continue.....

Barcelona willing to go to £130M for Liverpool ace Coutinho

Image
Barcelona are willing to go to £130m for Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho.

The Daily Express says Barcelona are ready to up their offer for Coutinho to a staggering £130m.
The La Liga giants saw a £118m bid rejected by the Reds on Friday.
It's suggested only £80m of that offer was guaranteed and Barca wanted to spread payments over five years with a vast chunk in add-ons.
Liverpool do not want to sell and are demanding over £140m but Barcelona are hoping to tempt them with a £130m bid with a far greater portion up front.  Click Here To Continue...

Diego Costa won't return to Chelsea to even clearout locker

Image
Diego Costa is happy to leave someone else to clear out his locker at Chelsea.
The Sun says the AWOL striker has told pals anything of his at the club's Cobham HQ is up for grabs. Costa, 28, is determined to force a move back to Atletico Madrid after being told he is not wanted by Antonio Conte. But the situation has reached a stalemate with the Premier League champions refusing to sell until he reports back for duty. They say he should honour his contract and get himself back to the club to get fit. Costa revealed last week he felt he was treated like a “criminal" by Chelsea and does not want to return.

Luis Suarez: Coutinho signing won't rescue Barcelona

Image
Barcelona has been warned against moving for Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho.

Barca icon Luis Suarez says Coutinho isn't the player for Barca this summer. Along with their frustrated pursuit of Coutinho, Barca, who lost both legs of the Supercopa de Espana to Real Madrid to begin the campaign, have found similar resilience in Borussia Dortmund over French winger Ousmane Dembele. Speaking to Carrusel Deportivo, Suarez said: "These two games had little history and signings such as Dembele and Coutinho are not the solution. "Barca have to know that (they are) united and together (and) they have to fight to get out of this, whether or not there are new players."
