Marcos Alonso: Set for a move to Fiorentina

Alonso is out of contract at the Reebok Stadium and he is set to leave the Championship club on a free transfer.

A number of teams, including Stoke and Hull City, have been linked with a move for the full-back, but Fiorentina are favourites to sign the Spaniard.

Fiorentina have held a long-term interest in Alonso and tried to sign him during the January transfer window.

The Italians are now hopeful that they have agreed a deal as they look to bolster their squad for next season.

Alonso cost Wanderers £2.5m when he signed from Real Madrid in the summer of 2010 and he made 46 appearances for the club during his time at the Reebok.

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
