UPDATE

The rant's section has been updated with the all things footie end of season summary/award ceremony. Just click HERE to go directly to the page.

World Cup Wallpapers are being worked on and will be up soon. In other news, Ronaldo has apparently been offered to Manchester United in a deal involving Nike (who take over United's kit sponsorship next season). Spanish international 'keeper Santiago Canizares is out of the World Cup after smashing a bottle of aftershave and having a shard of glass sever a tendon in his foot (Ouch!). Charlton have signed Manchester United reserve goalkeeper Paul Rachubka and Everton have released Jesper Blomqvist after just 17 appearances for the club.

Apparently Nicolas Anelka will be moving to Liverpool after all. Showdown talks, threats, £12m, blah blah blah — all in a day's work for Nicolas. Does that mean the Djibril Cisse move is off? probably, but the highly rated Auxerre forward will surely move somewhere in the Summer, is Arsene Wenger secretly watching in the wings?

One player Wenger is said to be watching is 17 year old Nigerian sensation Julius Aghahowa. Try saying that after a couple of pints. He's the one who does about 15 somersaults after each goal, currently playing for Shakhtar Donetsk, his international goalscoring record is pretty impressive too; 11 from 16 games. Chelsea are after another African, Njitap Geremi of Real Madrid is apparently close to signing for around £6m whilst Mario Stanic looks to be off to Parma for around the same fee.

Just a final word to congratulate the England U21's on beating (host nation) Switzerland 2-1 in the European Championship. Goals from West Ham's Jermain Defoe and a first international goal for Peter Crouch gave England victory. Keep it up boys!
