Each day we'll bring you the very latest tabloid rumors as the biggest clubs around splash the cash to bolster their rosters. True or not, they're always entertaining... Paul Ince is on the verge of becoming the new manager of Championship side Blackpool where his son, Tom, is a player. Stoke are planning a fresh move in the summer for Birmingham defender Curtis Davies after missing out on him last month. West Ham will make a new summer bid for Southampton striker Rickie Lambert. Football fans could be allowed to drink alcohol in their seats for the first time in almost 30 years if a campaign led by Ipswich Town gets the go-ahead. Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has warned skipper John Terry that he is not guaranteed a start. Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna, 30, says manager Arsene Wenger has more options this season because the Gunners are no longer reliant on striker Robin van Persie, who joined Manchester United in the summer. Coventry are set to build a new stadium after talks over unpaid rent at the Ricoh Arena collapsed. Winger Ryan Giggs says England manager Roy Hodgson is making a massive mistake by ignoring his Manchester United team-mate Rio Ferdinand. West Ham's hopes of signing Vitesse Arnhem's Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony are fading as he wants to join a Russian club. Brendan Rodgers insists Liverpool's Europa League dream is still alive despite his side crashing to a demoralising defeat. Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is interested in Roma's Argentine forward Erik Lamela and Brazilian center back Marquinhos. Real Madrid frontman Cristiano Ronaldo has vowed to end Manchester United's Champions League campaign in the second leg at Old Trafford. Newcastle were left fuming about their 0-0 draw at home against Metalist Kharkiv last night after Papiss Cisse had two 'goals' ruled out for offside. Former Blackburn and MK Dons manager Paul Ince, 45, is set to become the new manager of Blackpool after watching most of the games this season because of his son Tom. Liverpool are developing an unhealthy reputation for becoming one of Europe's most attractive losers. Chelsea's interim manager Rafael Benitez says defender John Terry's knee injury has locked the 32-year-old into a "vicious circle" in which he is not sufficiently fit to play but cannot regain his sharpness without time on the pitch. Nani's future at Manchester United is in fresh doubt after the Portugal winger was left out of the squad to face Real Madrid on Wednesday. A defiant Brendan Rodgers claimed that Liverpool's Europa League hopes remained alive last night despite a 2-0 away defeat to Zenit St Petersburg that left him bemoaning failings in defense and attack. Manchester United's players have demanded that their young goalkeeper David de Gea be given the time and patience to succeed at their club after the 22-year-old's huge role in securing a draw in the Bernabeu left Spain salivating over the prospect of him returning to La Liga. Chelsea began life in the Europa League with an unconvincing win in Prague, which did little to suggest that Rafael Benitez's love affair with the club has much time to run. Brendan Rodgers claimed Liverpool have "a fighting chance" of reaching the last 16 of the Europa League despite falling to a 2-0 defeat at Zenit St Petersburg on a night when fears of racist abuse from Russian fans proved unfounded. Andre Villas-Boas hailed Gareth Bale as "incredible" after a stunning performance for Tottenham against Lyon in which two superb free-kicks earned his side a 2-1 lead going into the second leg of their Europa League knockout tie.
