Review of the Day

 

Transfers

Shrewsbury Town have made a double signing as they look to rebuild under new boss John Askey. Defender Kieran Kennedy has followed Askey from former club Macclesfield Town, while ex-Arsenal youngster Fejiri Okenabirhie has come in from Dagenham. Both players have moved for undisclosed fees.

Defender Joe Riley has joined Plymouth Argyle following his release from Shrewsbury. The 26 year old full-back is Argyle's 4th signing of the window so far.

Venezuelan right back Alexander Gonzalez has been released by Huesca.

Brazilian midfielder Danilo (not the Manchester City man) has left Portugese club Braga to move to OGC Nice for over £10m.

Brighton & Hove Albion have released Leroy Rosenior's son Liam Rosenior as they prepare for a second season in the Premier League. Former Newcastle United and Holland keeper Tim Krul has also been released by the Seagulls.

 

Coleman Takes China Job

Former Wales manager Chris Coleman has succeeded Manuel Pellegrini as manager of Hebei China Fortune. With Coleman not getting the chance to earn the big bucks as a player, and his stock still high from his time with Wales, despite being unable to stop Sunderland dropping into League One, Coleman has cashed in with a job in the Chinese Super League.

 

Pep V Toure Descends Into Playground Arguing

Yaya Toure's bitter rant after leaving Man City has been answered by Pep Guardiola calling it a lie. Guardiola said: "It's a lie and he knows it. We were together for two years and now this is when he says it. He never told me face-to-face." It sounds even more like a bad break up or child's playground argument now. You can just visualise Toure's pain in the backside of an agent, who seems to exist to cause problems, Dimitry Seluk, running to Toure to say: "Yaya he called you a liar! Are you going to stand for that?" All the talk of playing for a City rival for £1 + bonuses (though he never explained what the bonuses are, I am sure they would not be small) just smacks of petty childishness. Yaya and Seluk need to grow up and accept Yaya's own laziness on the pitch cost him a place in the City side, not racism. The very fact he even went there, with such a nasty jibe, without any proof or way of disproving it, shows what kind of person Toure really is. Sadly he is now going about destroying what little respect he had earnt over the years with his smallminded actions.

 

Man City Announce Vieira To Take Nice Job Then Remove Website Post

Oddly Manchester City's official website announced that Patrick Vieira, coach of sister club in MLS New York City FC, had left the role to take up a job as head coach of OGC Nice in France's Ligue 1. Since then the post has been taken off the Man City site. The statement read: "I would like to thank City Football Group and New York City FC for the opportunity to have coached this tremendous football club. Leaving New York is an incredibly difficult decision for me and for my family and one that has not been taken lightly. From the beginning, City Football Group and its leadership, have believed in me and have helped guide me through the last eight years of my career - starting with my time as a player and ultimately culminating with my first opportunity to manage a first team."

 

Romero To Stay With United

Manchester United's back up keeper Sergio Romero has quashed rumours of him leaving. With David de Gea firmly ensconced as the Red Devils first choice, there had been plenty of talk he was ready to leave for first team football. Talk which he has put to bed by saying: "I'm staying at Manchester United for now. Mourinho worked hard for my renewal until 2022. I can't leave him now. If United wants to sell me, if they have an offer that it's useful for the club, they will sell me. But I don't think that would happen." Now we await the rumours that he has decided to stay because de Gea is going, which I am sure are already being made up, I mean written up, in bedrooms of the Twitterites as we speak.

 

Trent Makes Fan's Day

Liverpool and England full back Trent Alexander-Arnold has once again displayed the good attitude that has seen him make a sudden rise this season. After seeing a Twitter post by Liverpool fan Ben Kelly, which read: "Wanted to buy an England shirt with Alexander-Arnold on the back but it's £1 per letter for printing. Might have to be just 'Trent' instead." Alexander-Arnold messaged Kelly asking for his details and shirt size. This is just one of a string of stories which have emerged about the teenager, who still cleans his own boots, suggesting he has a bright future and the right humility to go as far as he wants in the game.

 

Bellerin Gets Double Snub In Canada

After a disastrous season with Arsenal has seen him dropped by Spain, Hector Bellerin has managed to get snubbed twice while attending the Formula 1 in Montreal, Canada. The Spanish fullback found himself twice ignored by Sky Sports presenters who had no idea who he was. At qualifying Ted Kravitz described him as a hipster as the cameras focused on him, but had no idea who he was. Even more indignity was heaped on him by Martin Brundle on his now traditional grid walk ahead of the race as the former racing driver asked him to move aside so he could talk to model Winnie Harlow instead. Bellerin looked distinctly unimpressed. To say the least.
