A product of the prolific Blackburn Rovers youth system and following 40 first-team appearances, Phillip Anthony Jones became a Manchester United player for an estimated fee of £16.5 million. Despite being just a 19-year old lad, Jones had already established himself as a first-choice at the heart of Rovers’ defense, something unusual especially for a team trying to avoid relegation to Championship, a goal they managed to achieve against all odds.

We’ve got a few interesting matches on this weekend. League leaders Chelsea go to in-form Tottenham, the Manchester clubs, City and United try to keep their title challenges on track with wins over Midlands clubs, West Brom and Stoke, Martinez goes back to Swansea, Mark Hughes fights for his job against Everton and we’ve got a north-east derby classic. I know which sofa I’ll be on at 10:30 on Saturday night.
So, as a starter for 10, thought I’d make some predictions on the games.
Tottenham vs. Chelsea

Today marked the two-year anniversary of FSG’s purchase of Liverpool. There have been several ups and downs in that time and several issues that Liverpool fans still felt as though the owners had to yet to properly address.
One of those issues that FSG inherited is what can only be called ‘the stadium issue’; to put it simply, Liverpool need a bigger stadium. That has been apparent for years as Liverpool cannot generate the same funds on a matchday as some of the other Premier League teams, despite having an enormous fanbase that most clubs would kill for, with demand for tickets far outstripping supply. This is because while Manchester United and Arsenal can fit 60,000+ fans into their grounds, Liverpool are restricted to 45,000 and currently have fewer corporate boxes, which are the real cash cow for football clubs, than other EPL teams.

Sir Alex Ferguson has often been referred to as a “tactical magpie”. He’s not particularly known as an innovator of systems but one of the reasons why he has provided consistent success for over a quarter of a century at United is because of his ability to keep up with the times. He has never been limited by a belief in a single system or style.

19th October 2002. A 16 year old Wayne Rooney comes off the bench and smashes a late winner in to David Seaman’s goal, ending Arsenal’s 30 game unbeaten run and also making him the youngest player to score in the premier league at the time. He has since joined Manchester Utd and become the 3rd highest paid football player behind only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, (two of the greatest to ever play the game) won 4 league titles and the champions league, and broken all sorts of records along the way.

With big money transfers such as Eden Hazard to Chelsea and Robin Van Persie to Manchester United, you could be forgiven for not noticing certain players turning out for other teams in the coming weeks. There have been some notable loan signings during the transfer window, with some teams lending their young talent out to gain exposure to first team football, while others have strengthened through loans because of low funding. Here,we will take a look at some of the notable loan signings this summer.
