    oh you should read the 3 main sport diaries in Spain ('Marca', 'Sport' and 'As'... you would realize the rumors in England, France and Italy are kids games.

    Sport and Marca have been openly fighting and accusing each other for the last month about Henry's jump to Barca. Really funny stuff, mate, I tell you

    There are two main reasons they do this.

    1. There's no football going on. So they have to find something to write about. The alternative, shock - horror, would be to write about some other sports!

    2. If they print 20 random rumours, they only need one to come true for them to trumpet "we told you first!" all over the back page.

    What?! You mean Owen going back to Real?

    No can do, I can tell you that is impossible, because the "Barca" diary (www.sport.es) announced Abidal, Toure and Henry for Barca, so Real Madrid media (www.marca.es) will press for bigger names, not only Owen (with all due respect for Owen).

    Well, at least that's my opinion. Cesc is moving out of the Premier, that's the other rumor.

    Owen brought through the youth system
    Owen out / Nunez and £8m in
    Bellamy in / £6.5m out
    Nunez out / £2m in
    Swap Bellamy for Owen

    *LFC +£3.5m

    Buy Bellamy £6m
    Sell Bellamy £5m
    Buy Owen £17m
    Swap Owen for Bellamy

    *NUFC -£18m (and end up with the lesser of the 2 players)

    Freddie Shepherd should go if Owen leaves for £9m. Fancy agreeing, after signing Owen for £17m, that he could go for £9m if they didn't qualify for Europe! Plonker. Have to feel sorry for those Geordie fans.
