Robbies Rebellion

After (allegedly) having a barney with Liverpool assistant manager Phil Thompson, Robbie Fowler was left out of Liverpools squad on Sunday. With the likely aquisition of Croatian youngster Milan Baros, places in the Anfield forward line are hard to come by, with Houllier preferring Owen, Heskey and Litmanen also above Robbie.

Sven Goran Eriksson has suggested that moving on may be the best option. The Englishman's name is in Eriksson's first XI but if he's not playing he can't realistically be there for long - the Swede has advised Lazio that the man with a plaster on his nose and a chip on his shoulder would be a useful signing.

lead the way my spirit guide

Marcel Desailly is flattered by a possible interest from Roma, and his old mentor Fabio Capello...

"All I can say is that I am astonished by this news and I am, at the same time, proud that it comes from Capello, whom I consider my spiritual father."

Ex-Leicester goalkeeper Kasey Keller has arrived at White Hart Lane from Rayo Vallecano on a free. With Neil Sullivan in the form of his life it can only be assumed that Keller is backup and there to give Sullivan a gentle nudge every now and then. After three seasons in Spain and being highly regarded by what is usually an incomprehensibly critical media, Keller may feel that the No1 jersey could be there to fight for.

And finally.... I'll be watching the England U21's tonight so expect a small review tomorrow - it should be a good game with Jeffers, Barry, Chadwick, Dunn.... well they're all Premiership first teamers bar Taylor in goal and Luke 'pretty boy' Chadwick. You can catch it tonight on Sky Sports 2 - kick off 8:00.

News just in, West Ham have agreed a fee of �2m for Atletico Madrid's Bosnian international defender Mirsad Hibic. With 18 international caps he should be granted a work permit but is will be unavailable for the Hammer's opener against Liverpool on Saturday.
