Maynor Figueroa has signed for Hull and Borussia Dortmund's general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke now insists star striker Robert Lewandowski will not be moving abroad this summer having already ruled out a move to domestic rivals Bayern Munich.

I've never really understood the logic as to why newly promoted teams sign players who were recently relegated. apart from the odd exception, the reason the team got relegated was that the players weren't good enough for that level. Having said that Figueroa could be a decent signing as he didn't exactly get a lot of protection at Wigan

Figeuroa is a good signing though, very good attacking left back, should link up with Robbie Brady very well. He was injured for the run in though. If he'd stayed fit, Wigan might have won that Swansea game and thus stayed up.

Haha! Good opener Dave. Made me chuckle, which is a rarity as I normally only laugh at things I've written. Can't believe you called me smug and self-centred, mind....

Rumors going around that Jordan Rhodes has handed in a transfer request. I imagine a huige bid will come from Real Madrid or Barca now.

Gareth Bale could stand to make up to £3million a year if he successfully manages to trademark his 'Eleven of Hearts' goal celebration logo, according to a leading sports marketing expert.

Bale has filed an application to the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) to trademark a logo which copies the goal celebration gesture he makes every time he finds the net, with a number 11 - his shirt number - inside the heart.

An independent tribunal will decide in the next two months whether he can trademark the logo. Should it give him the green light, the Tottenham forward will then have a powerful icon which he can incorporate into his image rights.

That could stand to make him up to £3million a year, according to Nigel Currie, director of sports marketing agency brand-rapport.

He said: "The possibilities are huge for Gareth Bale. Once he has that right he can cash in on it and become a more well-known player.

"A third of his overall income could be made from his image rights, potentially up to £3million a year."

Bale first incorporated the heart sign in to his goal celebration in 2010. He revealed afterwards that he did it as a gesture to his childhood sweetheart Emma Rhys-Jones, with whom he had a daughter last year.

Details of Bale's application to trademark the logo were first published last month. The 23-year-old, who scored 31 goals for club and country last term, has applied to trademark the logo for use on clothing, footwear and headgear as well as jewellery.

According to the IPO website, he has also applied to use the logo on leather goods, and "animal skins, hides; trunks and travelling bags; umbrellas, parasols and walking sticks; whips, harness and saddlery."

Bale is not the first British sportsman to try to cash in on his image rights. David Beckham was the most famous person to do so, but the 'Eleven of Hearts' logo gives Bale a head start on the former England captain.

"Beckham does various things for various brands, but having this logo gives you the opportunity to use it as the brand image," Currie added.

"It can appear on any sort of product he wants, so it has massive potential.

"Once you have got something that is readily identifiable with the person and has the potential to be seen by millions every time he scores a goal, then it becomes more and more recognisable globally."

How about Joe Cole? You're there but people keep forgetting about you, either for predictions or OPs.

Anybody watched Ever Banega play at all? The story seems to be gathering momentum that we're in for his signature. Banega's reputation for antics and eccentricities precedes him, but I don't know an awful lot about his playing style. Seems like he would be a slightly strange signing all-round really.

This could be great for Spurs if he does get it approved.

Can you see United or Madrid giving up their numer 11 shirt? Does Giggs still have 11? Who is Madrids no.11? he'd have a trade mark of 11 so he won't move anywhere without demanding that shirt number.

RAB says:
Think he's about 23, never seen him play which he's rated 90 in Soccer Manager which we all know is a good barometer.

Giggs still has the 11 Si, yeah. Not sure on Madrid though, it could be Ozil.

I'd like to see us retiring the number 11 with Giggs though.

I think he said 'Ryan, you're a muppet'!

Looking forward to the Tahiti - Nigeria game tonight for some unknown reason. According to FIFA world rankings Tahiti are just as good as Syria and better than Afghanistan so it should be a classic...

Apparently Tahiti lost their warm up game 7-0.....

Ok wtf is Ashley doing at Newcastle?

Kinnear as football director. Ashley's mate in again

The guys a fud and that's that and totally undermines pardew

Honestly can't stand Ashley

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Jun 2013 15:11:05 BDT
Maybe he wants rid of pardew without having to sack him by hiring Kinnear to undermine him. Compensation for sacking him can't be cheap when he's on an 8yr contract
