Swans Boss Rodgers Would Consider Scotland Loan
Friday, 28th Jan 2011 10:58
Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers says he would consider signing Town striker Jason Scotland on loan, if he became available. However, the Northern Irishman is yet to make an approach for the 31-year-old former Swan, who joined the Blues from Wigan in the summer.
Rodgers said: “He is someone who had two fantastic years here and scored a lot of goals. Everyone knows Jason’s qualities and if he became available for a loan we would have to consider it.
“There was a possibility to buy him in the summer, but we didn’t have that sort of money and there were other things we needed to look at at the time at the club. But he is certainly a player that could be interesting.”
The ex-Watford and Reading manager says he has as yet made no move for the Trinidadian: “I don’t know what the situation is with him because I’ve not asked the question. Maybe it’s a case that he wants to play, but I’ve not spoken to anyone and he’s an Ipswich player.”
Elsewhere, former Blues boss Roy Keane has been somewhat speculatively linked with the manager’s job at Sheffield Wednesday currently occupied by Alan Irvine.

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.

Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
