The Grab: 05.30

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be with a man like Sven-Goran Erikkson? I didn't think you did, but in case you were wondering, Nancy Dell'Olio gives us some insight. What's worse, being with Sven or the world knowing that he broke your, er, heart. [Daily Mail]

It looks like Jose Pekerman, who led Argentina in last year's World Cup, will take over at Toluca. Rumored to be in line for the US National team job last summer, this will be his first top division side. [IHT]

The Glazers let Fergie splash the cash early, agreeing to terms with Sporting and Porto's stars Nani and Anderson, respectively. With Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs nearing the twilight of their careers, the league champions look to be boning up on youth in their forward positions. Along with Owen Hargreaves and the return of Ben Foster from his loan at Watford, it looks like the Red Devils have made the bulk of their moves early, sparing their fans the sideshow of rumor and innuendo that is the off-season. [Sky Sports]

C'mon, Rafa, what harm would could come of signing another multi-million pound international who hasn't thrilled in years? Considering you'll rotate the little imp so he'll end up playing one out of every three games, could you do any worse than Bolo Zenden and Harry Kewell and half of the other guys for sale? Granted, his wages may be high, but I have two words for you: Robbie Fowler. [Tribal Football]

Now that everyone's top 10/bottom 10 lists are out, check out the some nifty data to keep you busy in the offseason (well, for at least a few hours):
