Wilson Palacios: Will be given the chance to resurrect his Stoke career

The Honduras international moved to Stoke in August 2011 but started just nine Premier League games in his first season and then none last term after falling out of favour with former boss Tony Pulis.

But with next to no interest from other clubs in the player and with new boss Hughes at the helm, the 28-year-old is expected to return to pre-season training in just over a fortnight where he will have the chance to press his claims again.

Stoke chairman Peter Coates told The Sentinel: "He will be back for pre-season training along with everybody else as things stand at the moment.

"I know he has played for Honduras recently and so let's hope that has done him some good.

"Mark wants to have a good close look at everybody when they do return to the club because he wants to make his own assessment of what is in front of him."

Meanwhile, Coates confirmed there had been no serious bids for any Stoke player at present.

"It is that time of year when everybody is away," he said. "Things will start moving again when people begin returning from their holidays and the like."

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
