Manchester City appoint KopStar

Roberto Mancini has departed Manchester City. The Italian has been quickly replaced with legendary Australian manager KopStar. The Aussie has been touted as the man who can lead City to the top 4 after they finished the season in an extremely disappointing twelfth position.


The Sheik: bidded a over 99% of his fortune on Manchester City winning the title this season

KopStar has a tiny squad, with only 21 players at his disposal and with the Sheik being bankrupt after betting all his fortune on Manchester City winning the title at the beginning of last season. This depressing financial state will see Manchester City miss out on their two main targets of Adebayor and Lucio.


Kaka: set to leave Manchester

However not is all bleak for the Manchester side with KopStar promising a revolution. He is set to cash in prize assests Kaka and Aguero to create squad depth and financial security. They are not the only ones for sale with reports suggesting that he will sell anyone on the squad for the right price.

Kaka race begins to heat up


Kaka: Real Madrid have bidded for the Brazillian

The first bid for Kaka has been made with former club Real Madrid offering £47,613,000 to regain the services. It is reported that Manchester City are willing to hold out for a better bid, preferably one with players involved.

West Ham United Appoint The First Jamaican Coach To The English Championships


Usain Bolt is giving up the track to manage the English Club.

I think i need to start doing something with my life where I am actually challenged and obviously I wasn't getting that on the track. Coming to England to manage West Ham is a real dream come true although to be honest my favorite team as a boy was Manchester United but since Ronaldo left, there is not much love there. Speaking of Christiano Ronaldo, he is someone that I am very close to. Who knows I might convince him to join me here.


I will make all decisions regarding the club affairs and will be the source of funding behind the club. What can I say I'm rich. I drive expensive Mercedes Benz in ditches for fun.


Just one of five

Seriously though on the business side of things, Diego Milito is set to join the club. That is huge as he is a finisher and I need someone to be calm and composed in front of goal. My team will be about speed and finishers. There is lot more to be done and I'm now in contact with Kopstar and hopefully we both can get a deal done.


Diego Milito happy to be Bolt's first signing

I am happy to be apart of what Manager Bolt is doing and I know we are going to win titles under his management.

Alvaro Negredo Shock The World By Joining Stoke


Negredo today completed his move from Sevilla to Stoke City after signing a four-year contract.

The striker, understood to have cost a club fee of £8.5m, passed a medical at the club's training ground yesterday. He briefly flew back to his homeland to say an emotional goodbye to fans in Spain before arriving back on England today to complete the formalities of the transfer.

"I'm very happy to be joining the club," said Negredo, speaking through an interpreter. "It is a fantastic opportunity to be joining Saiko. You don't get opportunities like this every day of your life. When you hear a club from EPL is interested in you it is something that fills you with a lot of surprise and a lot of pride."

Negredo insisted he was ready to work extremely hard to live up to his low price tag.

"The figures that have been mentioned are bound to bring an added pressure, but when you sign for a club like Stoke you've got to bear pressure," he added. "I know the demands are high but I believe in hard work and think I can work hard to fulfill those expectations."

Re: English Championship 2933 Reporting thread


After 2 successive division 3 play off semi final defeats, Derby County have sacked Nigel Clough and appointed Chris Bickmore.

Derby's owners say they are prepared to back Bickmore and have made around £50m available to him as he looks to completely overhaul the squad.

Bickmore has already made 33 signings in his first week at the club with 21 heading out of the door. Amongst the major signings are the ex-Sunderland trio Michael Turner, Anton Ferdinand and Kieron Richardson who all sign as free agents.

Also joining at the back are Angel Dealbert from Valencia and promising young Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld.


Turner will be the new Derby club captain and said he had no hesitation in joining what should be some exciting times at Pride Park.

Another free signing and possibly the jewel in Derby's crown was the free agent capture of Brazilian midfielder Denilson for 7.2m who chose the Rams ahead of Newcastle and Norwich as he wanted first team football at this stage in his career. Denilson will be teaming up with his ex-Arsenal youth team colleague Carlos Vela who signs on loan.


Manager Bickmore has gone for experience in goal in the form of Bayern Munic keeper Jorg Butt who was a steal at 3.2m.

Promising Argentinian striker Lucas Barrios signs from Dortmund and he will partner Guillermo Franco up front who has signed on loan from West Ham. In reserve will be new Austrian international Roman Waller who signs from the Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg.

As well as new first team players, Bickmore has also stressed that a good youth team is essential for future success and he hasn't been slow in snapping up young talent. Mats Rits, Tom Cairney, Maxime Lestienne, Danny Wilson, the Croatians Kramaric and Vukusicm, Josh Thompson, David Alaba and Christoph Moritz are amongst the many youngster joining the Rams Revolution.

With the money at his disposal, Bickmore has boldy stated that he intends to win promotion in his first season and hopes to reach the premier league in 3 seasons. "We have to aim high, we get 30k each week and these fans deserve some success as they've been starved of it lately".

In a major coup, Karim Benzema signed from Real Madrid in deal costing 28 million pounds.


Also Simon Kjaer signed from Palermo in a deal costing 18 million pounds. Everton beat of lots of competition for the highly rated youngster.


Thomas Muller signed from Bayern Munchen costing 6 million pounds.


McKinna was stoked with these three sigings saying

These are all three quality players now who are good now but will be even better soon

Everton's starting lineup looks like this:


Neil--- Kjaer--- Juan ---Lescott

Taddei- Fellaini- M.Diarra- Hleb

Manchester City humbled

Manchester United have won the Manchester derby 3-0 with goals from Rooney, Feghouli and Anderson. Anderson subsequently won man of the match. Manchester City were never in the game with United controlling close to 60% of possession, and with their lack of team chemistry with Diarra, Rafinha, Derdiyok and Ronaldino making their starting debuts for the club, the outlook was never looking good.

Manchester City will have hope of redemption when the play Liverpool at Eastlands whilst Manchester United play Arsenal.

Derby 4 Yeovil 1

Derby continued their 100% start to the season with a comfortable 4-1 win at home to Yeovil, but it wasn't all plain sailing for the Rams. Despite a bright start they fell behind in the 17th minute as Luke Rodgers scored on the break, chipping it over the onrushing Jorg Butt to put Yeovil into a surprise lead.


However their joy was short lived as the lead lasted just 6 minutes before Denilson bundled the ball home following a goalmouth scramble.

Derby continued to press with Franco going close just before the break. Some harsh words were obviously said at half time as Derby came out on the attack and had sewn the game up within 12 minutes of the restart.

A fantastic half volley from the edge of the area from Charles N'Zogbia on 55 minutes put Derby in front and 2 minutes later, N'Zogbia was on target again, this time with a brilliant far post header from Plasil's cross.


N"Zogbia celebrates his 2 goal debut

Derby laid seige to the Yeovil goal and Wagenaar in goal had to be at his best to keep the score down, without him it could easily have been 7 or 8.

The Rams sealed the points 7 minutes from time when Barrios seized on a mistake to run clear, round the keeper and tap home.

All in all manager Bickmore was satisfied with the win and Derby will look to maintain their winning start when Oldham visit Pride Park on saturday.
