Not Another Trophy

No, I'm not talking about united - France won the Confederations Cup yesterday beating hosts Japan 1-0 in the final, courtesy of a headed goal from man of the match Patrick Vieira. There's also been a load of nonsense talked about him requesting a transfer from Arsenal, rubbish if you ask me, but I would say that wouldn't I?

Gus Poyet has finally completed his switch to Spurs for around �2.25m. The 33 year old Uruguayan international has moved due to lack of first team opportunities at Chelsea and is Glenn 'Holy Man' Hoddle's third signing after Teddy Sheringham and little known Yugoslavian centre half Goran Bunjevcevic.

Chelsea are said to be close to signing both Frank Lampard and Emmanuel Petit. I wouldn't be surprised if Petit joined - I've thought he was going there for a while, but the Lampard deal (reputedly worth about �11m) is more of a speculation than a confirmation In my opinion.

Aston Villa are prepared to make a �6m bid for Racing Santander's Swedish defender Olaf Mellberg, looking to replace the almost certainly leaving (if anyone will have him) Gareth Southgate.

And finally.... I've heard talk of United linking up with Formula 1 team and legendary Italian car manufacturer Ferrari, one of the worlds most recognised sporting brands, to spread their empire even further. I've heard Scumacher is a bit useful with a football, maybe its an audacious bid to snach the 32 year old German from the Italian Champions. I'd bet he's faster than Teddy Sheringham.
