Afternoon all,

West Ham midfielder Joe Cole has today revealed that his move to Liverpool back in 2010 was a mistake. But the former England international has also stated that he wants to stay at Upton Park for the remainder of his career as he loves the club and does not wish to move again. Cole started his career with West Ham in 1994 as a youth player and made his full debut for the side in 1997 when he was only 17 years old and in the five years to follow, he made 150 appearances before moving to Chelsea. And since his return to the Hammers in January, Cole has played eight times and scoring twice

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has said that the club still have a lot of work to do despite them reaching the 40 point mark last weekend with their 1-0 win over Newcastle. The Swans have still got to play all of the top five teams in the Premier League before the end of the season, but it is very doubtful that the club will be dragged into the relegation battle this late on in the season. Swansea have already had a lot of success this season under Laudrup, as they won the Capital One Cup with an emphatic 5-0 drubbing of League Two side Bradford City last month

Wigan Athletic midfielder Jordi Gomez believes that the club are capable of achieving both FA Cup glory and Premier League survival. Gomez has said this before Wigan’s FA Cup quarter final with fellow Premier League side Everton this weekend.

Maanchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has thanked the clubs supporters after their 2-1 loss to Spanish champions Real Madrid last night, which saw them bow out of the Champions League 3-2 on aggregate to Madrid. But Madrid were helped last night by the somewhat harsh sending off of winger Nani when United were leading 1-0, which would have been enough for them to go through. But in the end, Madrid’s pressure paid off as they scored two second half goals to secure their place in the quarter finals of the Champions League for the thrid year in succession. At the end of the game, the anger of both United fans and players was clear, and especially in Ferdinand who approached referee Cuneyt Cakir and applauded him sarcastically before he left the field

Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun is willing to consider all of his transfer options once his Chelsea contract expires in the Summer.

But that will have no effect on Benayounm who has already generrated a lot of interest from European clubs, especially from Russia where it is believed that three sides are very interested in acquiring his services for next season

Tottenham Hotspur captain Michael Dawson has said that it is vital to keep hold of Welsh midfielder Gareth Bale in the Summer as if he left then it would damage their hopes of European glory. Bale has been in astonishing form this season, which has seen him score 24 goals for both club and country. This form has helped Spurs to thrid in the Premier League with only 10 games remaining. But not all of the praise can go to Bale, as there are 10 other players alongside him who have all put in some massive performances to ensure that the club is in their current position
