Powell: Anyone could be sold

Charlton manager Chris Powell says Chelsea and Manchester City are the only clubs who do not need to sell players, amid reports his entire squad could be up for sale.

Addicks chairman Michael Slater took to the club's matchday programme to reject claims that the club may be sold, but Powell accepts that any of his players could be moved on to raise much-needed funds.

"I think everyone is up for sale at every football club bar Chelsea and Man City," said Powell, the former England left-back who took over at The Valley in January 2011.

"Everyone is available if they put the money down. I'm not saying that's what I want to happen here but you can't stop people bidding for your players if they're interested.

"It is always a fact of managerial life that anyone can come in for your players at any time during the transfer window."

Powell is hopeful of adding more players to his squad, with Tottenham striker Jon Obika linked with a return to The Valley following a loan spell that yielded three goals in the latter part of last season.

"We are going to be forever linked with him until he comes here or goes elsewhere," Powell added.

"Obviously Spurs have got bigger fish to fry they feel at the moment, and we all know what that is. He is someone we've looked at and will continue to monitor."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
