Korey Smith: Grateful to Johnson

Johnson, who made nearly 200 appearances for City, made Smith his skipper at Oldham after signing him on a permanent deal last summer following a loan spell.

"I'm very excited to be here, it's a great move for me and it's going to be a big season ahead," said Smith, for whom City paid an undisclosed fee to make him their fourth summer signing.

He added on the club's official website: "I think the club has been interested for a while - the last six months to a year - and I'm happy the deal has now gone through.

"I've played here a few times and I've got a couple of friends who say nothing but good things about the place. I know it's a very big club, so I'm looking forward it.

"Lee Johnson has been a great help and put a lot of trust in me last season, making me his captain, and I'm very grateful for that.

"I had a great time at Oldham and wish them all the best in the future. He said nothing but good things about the club and he had a really good time here."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
