The Blackburn Rovers know that keeping Roque Santa Cruz was nothing short of miraculous, with Manchester City chasing Santa Cruz like a lion ready to pounce on a deer.
Since lions very rarely miss catching a helpless deer, Sam Allardyce knows that Manchester City will eventually get Santa Cruz with a portion of the Euro-stuffed bags hidden under the chairman's desk at City.

The writers of Gossip Galore have had sleepless nights ever since learning of Federico Macheda's £400 a week. How should the poor guy live with that kind of wage?
Bonuses for extra-time goals should give him a boost though.
However, the latest news suggest that Manchester United will offer Macheda a new five-year-deal deal worth £10,000. Ah, that's much better. Our writers can finally get some sleep.
