Twitter Causes Your Team To Suck?


Or so says Darren Bent. The Sunderland striker recently swore off Twitter after claiming that the 140-character-or-less social networking site was a “distraction” to himself and ┬áhis relegation-threatened teammates.

“I had a good chat with the manager recently and I just thought with the run we’re on at the moment, I needed to get rid of the distractions,” Bent told the Sunderland Echo. “I have to solely focus on getting Sunderland out of the relegation battle and I have shut the Twitter down. I don’t even go on it any more to look at what other people are posting.”

Well, I guess when it comes from a guy called “DBTheTruth” it has to be…true.

My Sturridge Don’t Cost A Thing…Or 7M


So, looks like Daniel Sturridge may cost Chelsea a pretty British Pound. The Professional Football Compensation Committee ruled that the east Londoners owe Manchester City 3.5M for the July 2009 transfer and that number could balloon up to 7M if Sturridge reaches certain milestones.

Apparently, the two sides failed to reach an amount on an initial fee, and, as a result of Sturridge’s age, City is now due compensation.

That makes sense…
