Monday's Newspaper Roundup

Sunderland to target Spurs' Alan Hutton in January (Daily Mirror)

What I Think? : It would be a great signing for Sunderland if it does happen. He's finally emerging from being on the sidelines due to an injury but Harry Redknapp has players coming back from their loan spells and he might look to strengthen himself. I see it happening.

Notts County chief executive doesn't know where the money is coming from (The Sun)

What I Think? : Magpies have dominated the news in the past few weeks with their high profile takeover, Sven Goran Eriksson becoming the director of football and thereafter Sol Campbell joining the club. (and then leaving it within a game!) Now their chief executive, Peter Trembling has told The Sun that he has no clue of where the money is coming from. This would certainly make things worse for the league two club.

Nani would call Ronaldo before facing Wolfsburg on Wednesday (The Sun)

What I Think? : Nani would definitely need some confidence boost but would he play is the real question? Or would they end up talking about Ronaldo's sexcapades in Madrid?

Walcott tells Wenger, I want to play against Olympiakos (The Sun)

What I Think? : Walcott returning to action would bring the swiftness and pace back to Arsenal and even step it up a notch. However, he shouldn't be made to play the whole game as of yet. Match practice is necessary right now rather than full frontal return.

Tom Hicks and George Gillett at loggerheads again. This time over Middle Eastern riches (Daily Mail)

What I Think? : Tom Hicks and George Gillett have been acting like a couple with bad understanding and yet not ready to budge and divorce the other. We witnessed it earlier and we're seeing it now again. Saudi prince, Faisal bin Fahd bin Abdullah, sat alongside Gillett and witnessed Liverpool thrash Hull by 6 goals to 1. The Saudi group want to invest £200-350 million and garner 50% stake in the club. Liverpool currently are under debt of £245m and plan to build a newer stadium. This would help the club and it would be better if one of Gillett or Hicks let go.
