A mixed day at Anfield yesterday as Liverpool agree a fee for Luis Suarez, while at the same time being rocked by the news that Fernando Torres has handed in a transfer request. Liverpool still hold all the cards here and according to reports will ensure that the Spaniard remains at Anfield; however Dalglish will have to weigh up whether it is worth keeping a player, especially if his heart is elsewhere.
In the papers this morning there have been a mixed bag of stories that includes David Gold insistence that West Ham never intended to axe Avram Grant; Fabio Capello hails Gareth Bale as the Premier League’s best, while Trevor Brooking believes the FA can improve England.
