Officers of the Guardia di Finanzia - the Italian police department which focuses on financial crime - spent more than two hours going through documents at Napoli's Castel Volturno headquarters at the request of the Neapolitan prosecutor's office.

A statement issued on Wednesday afternoon on sscnapoli.it read: "Today, the Guardia di Finanzia accessed the company offices to acquire information concerning a process initiated by prosecutors in 2007, of which the details are not known.

"We stress that the club, its representatives and its directors are not being investigated.

"The club, in keeping with a principle it has always followed, is on the side of the judiciary when it comes to ascertaining the truth of any matter."

It was also reported that police spent 30 minutes at the Rome headquarters of the Italian football federation (FIGC), looking through paperwork before taking away various documents.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
