Barnett: Transfer-listed

Posh paid a club-record fee of £1.2million to sign Barnett from the Red Devils last season.

The 27-year-old was made available for transfer by Posh this week after a breach of club discipline.

Crawley boss Richie Barker admits bringing Barnett back to Broadfield is something he often talks about, but he feels the club would probably not be able to afford to do it.

"Tyrone has been here before and I know he is someone the fans would like to see back, I barely go a day without someone talking to me about him," Barker told the Crawley News.

"But Peterborough paid a fair amount for him and I should imagine they would like to see some of that back, even if he has been transfer-listed. The finances at Crawley aren't a bottomless pit, we can't be going out and spending half a million pounds on someone."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
