      Man Utd's Tim Howard will be going to Everton on loan next season.
      Bolton is releasing a whole gang of players including Okocha. They are trying to retain Nakata who went back to Fiorentina.
      Not sure what to make of Tottenham's issue with the food poisoning at the hotel preceding their loss which prevented them from finishing 4th place.

      Now it is official, the league has DENIED Spurs a replay and the Premiership standings are final. I have to say, what a choke job on 4th place by Spurs. As you know I am NOT a supporter of theirs, but I like to spread information about the league as a whole. This is an open letter at the to the Tottenham supporters from Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy.
      ==========
      Following the decision on Wednesday to refuse our request for a replay of the West Ham game, Chairman Daniel Levy writes an open letter to supporters.
      Source: http://www.tottenhamhotspur.co....html
      Dear Supporter
      The Premier League has today rejected our request for a replay of Sunday's match against West Ham.
      We are disappointed, but not surprised. We continue to feel justifiably aggrieved at the course of events and remain convinced that the game should never have been played. If the loss of over half a selected squad to an inexplicable illness in highly suspect circumstances does not warrant the postponement of a match, then I can only despair at the state of our governing rules.
      In going ahead with the match, I trust you will appreciate that we chose the only safe option that would guarantee our already hard fought for place in European competition - and that, in making this request to the Premier League, we have fought to right an injustice.
      I should stress that our purpose in taking this request to the Premier League was two-fold: Firstly to seek the replay we feel we rightly deserved, but, equally important, to highlight these wholly inadequate and ambiguous rules that fail to regulate such incidents. The Spanish Football Federation allowed for the postponement of an Atletico Madrid game earlier this year due to the illness of players. Keith Lamb, Chief Executive of Middlesborough, has previously referred to the 'incomplete' nature of our rules and called for the Premier League to review them, so that no other club would ever be faced with this situation again. We are therefore the second club to call on the Premier League to urgently review their processes and rules in this regard.
      We are continuing to vigorously investigate the cause and origin of the illness. We shall leave no stone unturned in this quest. I know it may be extremely difficult to conclusively prove, but I am determined to, at the very least, establish whether or not this was a deliberate act of sabotage, striking at the very heart of the spirit of the competition. If there is a price to be paid, I shall look to ensure that it is paid. Additionally, if we do find any proof of foul play, we will bring this matter back to the FAPL without delay and will expect them to launch an immediate investigation in the interests of the integrity of the competition.
      I have received many emails of support from you, our fans, welcoming our stand on this lack of fair play and I thank you for those. A recurring theme is the pride you all felt in our 'heroes' on the pitch on Sunday and that you are looking forward to our return to Europe. It has been a great season and we should refuse to let this mar the achievements of it and the optimism with which we will now greet the new season.

      So now that the EPL, FA Cup and Champions League is over... do you think Henry will go to Barcelona like the papers have been saying?

      Henry finally pledges his future to Arsenal
      Arsenal are expected to announce today that striker Thierry Henry has signed a new contract to stay at the club for another four years.

      Henry has announced his intention to remain with the Gunners instead of moving to Barcelona, Real Madrid or AC Milan, who were all interested in signing the French international.
      A senior club source told PA Sport: 'There are just one or two things left to be finalised but we are hoping to make an announcement later today.'
      Henry, 28, has decided he wants to captain the club at their new Emirates Stadium after being convinced by Arsenal's battling performance in the Champions League final on Wednesday night.
      He told The Sun: 'I hope to stay for as long as I can keep running. I could not face leaving the fans. They are like my family.
      'My team showed me I didn't have to leave. They showed me they had heart.
      'Everything was up in the air for a very long time. But at the end of the day, the team raised their game.
      'Don't get me wrong. I love Barcelona. But on Wednesday night, Arsenal showed me they had heart.'
      Henry has only 12 months left on his current contract and there had been claims a deal with Barcelona had already been wrapped up. But the striker's passion for Arsenal shone through following the final, and he even talked in disparaging tones about some Barcelona players.
      On the flight back to London he also dropped a huge hint when, addressing passengers in the plane over the intercom, he said: 'We must pick ourselves up and make sure we come back stronger next year.'

      RVN is heading out, no question about that. Players that have been linked to Old Trafford have been Fernando Torres (Atletico Madrid) and Mahamadou Diarra (Lyon) right now. AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko in final discussions with Chelsea.
      Also, here is some more news:
      ====
      Chelsea to learn success of Sheva approach - I think that if he signs, I'm going to kill myself!
      ====
      West Bromwich Albion have rejected a £3.5 million bid from Tottenham for defender Curtis Davie

      Lee Bowyer may make a switch to Upton Park. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Not what I had in mind but a good move.

      Ballack and Shevchenko in the last two weeks and now - Chelsea Football Club can confirm that Jon Obi Mikel has today (Saturday) joined the club. from my ManUtd.
      This is worse than the Yankees taking over the payroll world in the MLB.

      Yeah it's disgusting. I was hoping Shev would have the decency to stay away from Chelsea, unlike Ballack [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
