    Having watched Chelsea actually win that game on Saturday. I've made the executive decision to give up football now. **** it.
    The following news will restore your faith in football.....

    Kieron Dyer just signed a new deal at QPR. He's played 35 games in the last five years. How the hell is he getting money for playing the game?

    Thanks Kev. That indeed really worked. :hmpf:

    I'm telling if you, if a Ranger's new co was to somehow get back into the SPL (as highly unlikely it is) then I will give up football (Yeah, I was lying in the last post :ninja:)

    Swansea have agreed a £6.8m fee for Gylfi Sigurdsson.

    Good on them, they deserve a player of his quality on a permanent basis after their season - I just hope they won't be another 'second season syndrome' team.

    Good signing for them, price and player.

    I thought Southampton had enough strikers?

    Apparently not, as Burnley have accepted an offer of £7m for Jay Rodriguez.

    Is Rodriguez going to score more than either Lambert or Sharp? I dunno.

    I guess he has age on his side, plus he can play as a winger, but for £7m there are surely better options out there.

    Speaking of second season syndrome teams, Paul Lambert has apparently walked out on Norwich to take over at Villa.

    Karma is a bitch. He did the exact same thing to Colchester United a few years ago.

    I'm very disappointed about both this and Rodgers to Liverpool, tbh. :sadnod:

    Already can't wait til next PL season. :sogood:

    Chelsea, Liverpool, Villa, Swansea, West Brom and Norwich all likely to have new managers; Southampton, Reading and West Ham all look like they're going to be strong; Hazard and Hulk possibly rocking up at Chelsea...

    Out with the Carling Cup, in with the Capital One Cup as the League Cup gets rebranded following a new sponsorship deal.

    The League Cup will be known as the Capital One Cup from the start of the new season under a four-year sponsorship agreement with the credit card company, the Football League has announced.

    Liverpool are the holders of the previously-named Carling Cup, beating Cardiff 3-2 on penalties at Wembley in February.

    The value of the new sponsorship deal has not been disclosed.

    Football League chief commercial officer Richard Heaselgrave said: "This is terrific news for clubs and a great way to conclude what has been a memorable domestic football season.

    "The Capital One Cup is in great shape having been re-invigorated in recent seasons by a number of memorable finals, some thrilling midweek cup football and a first glimpse of the stars of the future."

    The draw for the first round of the rebranded competition will be made on 14 June, with the final scheduled to take place at Wembley on 24 February.

    Also, Steve Bruce is reportedly set to be named Hull City boss tomorrow - I'd be fairly confident in his ability to get them back into the top flight.

    Aston Villa are still in talks with Lambert but also reportedly interested in the Espanyol manager Mauricio Pochettino.
