The Buck Moves On...

Saudi businessman Ali Al-Faraj has apparently completed his takeover of Portsmouth and there are optimistic noises about new training facilities and further development of the club's Fratton Park home so perhaps the south coast will still have a top-flight team this time next week. Next likely candidates for lights-out? West Ham would be my guess. Watch this space...

Elsewhere, those popular US owners of the Liverpool GTAers are making it quite clear who will be to blame if the club don't win anything this season: Rafa Benitez. Says George Gillet:

"We have invested more money than our competitors, in keeping with the history of the club.

"In the last 18 months, we have invested £128m on top of what has come in. That means it should be getting better.

"Now if it's not getting better, it's not Gillett and Hicks, it's the manager, it's the scouting. You have to make sure you balance out your analysis."

That'll no doubt endear him even more to those loveable scouse scallies. And no, it's not your year.

Job Seach and EBay action today, so I think tea is called for. Have a great day, all.
