Stories linking Jussi Jaaskelainen with Sunderland continue. The reported fee – £2 million is risible. Why a top class goalkeeper should want to move to next year’s relegation strugglers hasn`t been explained, but logic ain`t the thing here.

We`ll leave the last word to the big man himself. Commenting on negotiations, he said, ‘I didn’t even know they had started. I haven’t heard anything.’

Lies (sorry, rumours) emerged this week that El Hadji Diouf was in talks with Benfica. They flatly denied it. Dioufy`s probably been seen at Lisbon airport on his hols. The way he dresses you couldn`t miss him.

Igor Tudor has been linked with the Whites. As he has since 1994. Disregard.

Also mentioned have been Robbie Fowler, Brian McBride and Sami Hyppia. Conversations in news offices across the UK go something like this.

“Boss, who shall we link this player with?”

“How old is he?”

“Dunno, thirty summink, I think.”

“Link him with Bolton.”

“Duh ok.”
