First up, it seems the Laurent Blanc spiel in the popular printed has finally bitten the dust. The Daily Mail leading the charge with the news that Joao Moutinho heads ‘AVB’s hit list’ with The Daily Star valuing the player at £32m if you will.

David Bentley’s name has surfaced like a poorly weighted body in the Thames. This time it’s the suggestion that he could be off on loan again, this time to Fulham. It would be wonderful to think that our new boss could get something out of the wannabe Beckham that never was. What’s it to be, get him playing well enough to get first team starts or get a return that isn’t a loss when placing him with somebody else? Hobson’s choice.
Elsewhere Steven Peanut has hit the headlines in South Africa for allegedly attacking Thabang Mnisi, the son of South Africa’s deputy minister of public service and administration in a nightclub kerfuffle. If the Toffee hearted one was wearing a Spurs shirt when he kicked him the injuries are bound to be minor.
