在这里，真要再次佩服一下《每日镜报》滴无中生有水平，继欧文一月份要转会等编造、臆断新闻后，他又来了一篇Dalglish: Gerrard can go on and on like Giggs http://www.mirrorfootball.co.uk/news/Liverpool-v-Manchester-United-preview-Steven-Gerrard-fitter-than-ever-after-groin-injury-says-kenny-Dalglish-article811599.html，文中，达格利什压根没有提及吉格斯、斯科尔斯，镜报却非常贴心滴为之主动补充……
曼联和AC米兰争夺的巴西桑托斯中场核心冈索(Paulo Henrique Ganso)证实自己可能在一月份决定未来，22岁的巴西国脚在环球体育上表示：“7月份，我想过离开桑托斯转会的机会，但当时我觉得留下才是最好选择。实际上，我不介意传闻说我会离开，我的注意力都集中在桑托斯队上，没有其他。桑托斯给了我一份新合同，但1月份之前我不打算考虑未来，最重要的是我要在世俱杯上有好表现。”
里斯本竞技射手范沃尔夫斯温克尔(Ricky van Wolfswinkel)的经纪人Louis Laros在Voetbal International上说：“里基与豪门有传闻非常符合逻辑，目前，我还没有接到过曼联和弗格森的消息，程序不是这样的，现在只是10月份，3个月后，一切就会不同。”
From schoolboy to Manchester United and England: The rise & rise of Phil Jones
Phil Jones's rise from Ribble Wanderers Under 10s to Manchester United's first team has been nothing short of meteoric. Three years ago, he was posing for a school photograph. Now, three months after Sir Alex Ferguson paid ?16.5million for him, Jones has played in the Champions League and made his England debut.
Here, John Edwards and Ian Ladyman chart Jones's journey to the top by talking to those who helped deliver England's own 'Big Phil'.
Fast track: Jones has impressed during his debut season at Old Trafford
Ribble Wanderers Juniors
Phil just turned up one day with his mum and dad and asked if he could play. Believe it or not, he had been to another club but couldn't get a game!
He played up front or on the right and scored a stack of goals. Looking back, a few of us at the club are surprised Phil was the only one from that side who went on to pro. It was some team. They were in the top league and won it most seasons and they reached the final of the Lancashire FA Cup.
Word got round and we soon had scouts from League clubs turning up for virtually all our games. They would come over and introduce themselves, because they had to ask permission to speak to any of the boys.

I always thought Phil was exceptional in the air and he gained such a reputation that visiting teams would stick two defenders on him at set-pieces. When I watch him on TV now and see him bring the ball out of defence, I can see it comes from the skill he had as a forward in those days.
I have spoken to him a few times since and my brother Tom, who played in the same team, keeps in touch via Facebook. As a club, we are incredibly proud to think he started out with us and has gone on to such great things.
The only time we have won the Lancashire Schools Cup in my time here was with Phil in the team, so I'm grateful to him for that. The thing I remember most about him was his diligence.
Rising star: Jones (fourth from right) impressed with his school team
He would work and work at whatever he did - and that was apparent on the football field. He didn't particularly stand out, funnily enough. You didn't watch him in a game and think, 'Gosh, he's going to play for Manchester United one day'. But I think that was down to his team ethic, rather than any lack of ability.
Unlike some boys of his age, he did not automatically assume that the ball arriving at his feet was a cue for showing how many tricks he could perform. His first thought was how he could best use it for the good of the team and so he would help it along to where it was needed most, usually to a team-mate in space.
Don't forget, though, Blackburn invited him to their school of excellence when he was only eight. We used to give him Thursdays off to attend, so it was clear he had something to offer.
Your country needs you: Jones made his England debut in Montenegro on Friday
You could tell what Phil was like from his final school report. It referred to his excellence at food technology and all sports. I wonder how many Premier League footballers excelled at food technology? But that just illustrates his attitude towards any subject he tackled. He would not settle for second best at anything.
Former academy coach, now reserves coach at Blackburn
Phil arrived at the academy as a goalscoring outside right after being spotted in a local kids' cup final. We moved him to central midfield, then to centre half - and that's where he began to make his mark for the Under 16s and 18s.
I've heard people say he didn't necessarily look head and shoulders above everyone else and I can see what they mean. He did really well in his first year after being taken on full time, but not quite so well in a couple of games after that.
Thrown in at the deep end: Jones made his Blackburn debut against Chelsea
In fact, we left him out after a couple of mistakes in a youth team game at Nottingham Forest. There was a stray back pass that went straight to one of their players and he was out of position for another of their goals. It's a measure of his determination to put things right, though, that he was making his first-team debut in the Carling Cup within a year.
He was always very comfortable in possession but also very motivated, as demonstrated by his League debut against Chelsea at Ewood Park. I remember him ploughing through a 50-50 challenge with Didier Drogba, then going straight into another with Frank Lampard. Drogba is an imposing figure, but that didn't stop Jonesey. He came through both tackles with the ball and just stood there, clenching his fist. What a moment! It nearly lifted the roof off, the reaction it got from the crowd.
He has a real passion for playing, and when I spoke to him the other week about how it was going at United, he sounded like a kid in a candy shop. He'd be kicking a ball about with his mates in the park if he wasn't doing it for a living.
I use him as a source of inspiration for kids arriving at our academy now. I point to Phil and say, 'That's what you can achieve if you set your mind to it.'
Former Blackburn manager
I had a nickname for him when he first came through. I called him John Terry. He had all those qualities that Terry has, even at a young age: commitment, desire, courage... all those things. He was also a very good footballer.
It's a huge bonus when you come into a club like I did and you find someone like that waiting for you. I first noticed him when he used to come up with some of the other academy players and play in training games against our first team.
Players like him and Junior Hoilett would come up from time to time. Actually, a lad called Keith Treacey was the one who stood out most in terms of talent. He is now at Burnley. I noticed Joner, too, of course. It would be impossible not to. He eventually made his debut in a League Cup game at Nottingham Forest and he did well. And then I played him, because of injuries, in a League game against Chelsea. It was some ask, facing Didier Drogba at his peak, but he came through and I thought he was man of the match. That says everything about him.
Centre of attention: Jones (centre) flanked by Rooney and Lamapard
Some players drown when they get their opportunities and some don't. Phil didn't. In this game - and at that age - it's as much about mental toughness and adaptability and courage as it is about technical ability. Phil scores highly on all of it.
We basically gave him a challenge and he met it straight away and was essentially ready for the next one immediately. He seems to have done that at United, too.
It was a huge ask for him to go to Old Trafford and slot in but he has done it. He is incredible. I notice that Alex has him playing at centre half and I think that will prove to be his position over the years.
We played him in centre midfield at Blackburn for a time as we had Chris Samba and Ryan Nelsen, who were such a reliable central defensive pairing for us.
I think Alex was on to him from early on. He used to come over to watch Mame Biram Diouf quite a lot. He was on loan to us from United. It was obvious he would notice Phil. When a player is that good, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to notice.
That is why, as time went on, we had Man United, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all after him. That says everything about him.
What his current standing as a United player shows is that he is a very gifted footballer. It also shows what can happen if we allow our young footballers to develop and come through in this country. We don't do that. We don't learn our lesson. Managers feel rushed and buy instead. It's a shame as the talent in our game is there. Phil Jones proves that.
I remember when he first started training with us, he did ok, but I didn't see anything straightaway to suggest he was going to be special. To be honest, I was a bit surprised when he was picked for the first time against Chelsea. But I've never seen a debut like it. He was fantastic.
Taking his chance: Jones impressed from the outset
What he showed that day, and has repeatedly proved since, is that you can throw him in at any level and he will raise himself to meet the challenge. In fact, he will make it look easy.
He took everything in his stride that day and looked as though he'd been in the side 10 years. Nothing ever seemed to get to him. In fact, the bigger the stage, the better he played, and that's why he is so suited to Manchester United and has already made his mark there.
It's a quality he has that reminds me of Wayne Rooney. You could see on day one at Old Trafford that Rooney wasn't the least bit fazed by a ?30million price tag. He belonged there, and Phil is the same.
He was always fairly quiet in the dressing room, but you need a bit of arrogance to be a top player, and he did not lack confidence. We didn't get a proper chance to say goodbye when United came in for him. You couldn't see his car for dust, for one thing! There have been a few text messages flying around since, but we're all looking forward to seeing him next time we play United.
SIR ALEX FERGUSON Manchester United manager
He played against our youth team about two-and-a-half years ago, when he was only 16, and he was immense. The next day I phoned Sam Allardyce to ask about him and he just laughed at me and said, "No way, he's in my first team on Saturday". We monitored him from that day on.
We beat Blackburn 7-1 last season but after the fifth goal he was running out and giving everyone around him stick - and he was only 18 then. I was very impressed. He was just one that we couldn't miss.
He's definitely got all the parts to his game, there is no doubt about that. He has got the desire to play and he's a good trainer, with a great determination about him.
Phil's a marvellous young lad. He's only 19 and has great enthusiasm. He's quick, can pass and has a fantastic will to win. He's been sensational since he came to us.
