Sorry Joe, Liverpool Not Biggest Club

JOE COLE believes he has joined “the biggest club in the country” after penning a four-year deal with Liverpool.

“The last 48 hours have been crazy,” Cole said. “I set myself a deadline to make a decision and when I made it I sent a text to Christian Purslow and Steven Gerrard and then turned my phone off.

“I know I have made the right decision and I am looking forward to the challenge. This is a challenge for me. I have played in London all my life. I could have stayed at Chelsea because the fans loved me and I won things, but I wanted to challenge myself and when I knew Liverpool were interested it was a no-brainer because they are the biggest club in the country.

Sorry to have to tell you Joe, but Liverpool are no way near the biggest club in the country. Try Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, even Newcastle....

Rio Ferdinand To Miss United's Opening Matches

Rio Ferdinand is likely to miss the North American tour and the Charity Shield opener.

The knee ligament damage Ferdinand sustained at England's World Cup training base in Rustenburg on 4 June means the defender's comeback will be around 13 August and the club's opening league game at home to Newcastle United, currently scheduled for Saturday 14 August.

Manchester United start their tour of the US next week for two weeks. Personally I think these pre-season tours are a waste of time, set the players up for needless injuries, and go against what many managers and players complain about - too many games already. But, they do bring in the money!
