Stephen McPhail: Has linked up with Sheffield Wednesday as a free agent

The 33-year-old has been without a club since leaving Cardiff City at the end of last season.

He formed part of the Bluebirds squad which secured promotion to the Premier League, but spent much of the campaign frustrated on the sidelines.

McPhail was restricted to just two appearances in 2012/13, suggesting he will be short of match sharpness.

Wednesday are, however, convinced that they can put his experience to good use.

The Republic of Ireland international has represented Leeds United, Millwall, Nottingham Forest, Barnsley and Cardiff over the course of a distinguished career which has seen him figure in over 400 games.

McPhail has worked with Wednesday boss Dave Jones before, during his time in South Wales, and will be eligible to make his Owls bow against Birmingham City on Saturday if deemed ready for action.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
