Paper Talk: Week 4

Paper Talk: Week 4

This edition is actually late on purpose. Gasp. I was hoping to avoid mentioning the Milner and Balotelli deals that have been going on since time began to bring you news of their ACTUAL signings. Unfortunately, they are still ongoing, and as such, get a mention. That was the mention.

So, on with other more exciting news! Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou warned Manchester City that their "summer spending spree will not guarantee them the Barclays Premier League title" . Yes you read correctly, Kalou of Chelsea.

Chelsea`s Frank Lampard also got in on the act, as did defenders Koscielny and Vermaelen of Arsenal. None of these stories get any links as their drivel doesn`t deserve to be read.

One player who sees things differently is none other than 'World Player of the Year`, Lionel Messi, who stated, "I thought it would take City years to win the title, but looking at the players they have I think they can do it and Carlitos` (Tevez) goals can fire them above Chelsea and United". The Diminutive winger also stated that Alex Ferguson AKA 'Baconface` showed no respect to Argentine team mate Carlos Tevez.

Hmm… Shall I listen to the opinion of Lampard and some other random squad players, or 'World Player of the Year`, Lionel Messi? I`ll go with the latter.

Adebayor told Tuttosport on Thursday that he wants to play for Juventus. The Togolese striker, who`s playing style resembles that of a K-holed indie kid on a Friday night, was reportedly quoted as saying "I am considering the many offers I have received".

Subsequently, this was revealed as a complete and utter lie by City, who dismissed the reports via twitter. For those of you too old to know what twitter is, it is a banana shaped bird that dwells in Oldham. Honest.

Finally, the eagerly awaited opponents of City`s Europa League qualifier were made known to us, the Citizens kicking off in Romania against Timisoara.

Elsewhere, Aston Villa play Rapid Vienna, while Woy Hodgeson`s Liverpool will be taking a trip to Turkey, where their fans will be belting out melancholic renditions of 'You`ll Never Wok Alone` against Trabzonspor.



Liverpool F.C. has been subject to intense speculation this week due to a reported offer for the club from Chinese business man Kenny Huang, on behalf of China Investment Corporation, the country`s sovereign wealth fund.

Since being reported, it turns out that CIC are not involved in the deal after all, while other speculated investors have also have denied any involvement in the deal.

Furthermore, and rather like Michael Gove`s royal cock-up regarding the school academies, it turns out that Huang was merely registering his interest and hadn`t in fact tabled an offer, despite what the British press reported.

I think the random squad players will probably have more knowledge of the BPL than Messi but i do think your squad is strong enough to compete for the title. Mancini may not be among the very Elite managers in world football but he's won titles before. It's not easy to do that even with the best team in the land

Despite what the British press reported? You mean made up. As far as our esteemed fourth estate is concerned the facts just get in the way of a good story. Interesting twists and turns in the Liverpool takeover saga ahead I reckon.

The Adebayor story is a "complete and utter lie"? Surely not? I thought he was supposed to be the latest that wanted out, sure didn't the lads on Vital Arsenal tell us this would happen. What are Klutch and our other visitors to the front page from rival clubs going to use as a stick to beat City with now?

Made4chelsea - Koscielny hasn't played a single premier league game. As for Arsenal having something to crow about - their friendly yesterday finished 5-6 against Warsaw or something. Hardly title winning form...
