    Tyrone Mears

    Championship side West Bromwich Albion have signed defender Tyrone Mears on a rolling contract until January.

    The 35-year-old - who has played for Preston, Derby, Burnley and Bolton - has spent the last three years in Major League Soccer with Seattle Sounders, Atlanta United and Minnesota United.

    "Tyrone has got a wealth of experience and is a very fit footballer," said Albion boss Darren Moore.

    "He's got massive experience and I'm pleased to have him here."

    Moore has confirmed on the club's website that Mears will feature in West Brom's Carabao Cup second-round tie at home to Mansfield Town on Tuesday evening.

    DhaNiikolae: Spurs will only be tested after their next game, if they manage to get pass Liverpool, then they are guaranteed to go far this season.

    Andrew Berkeley: Man Utd need someone who understands the club and a manager who understands football in the modern world. Edwin van der Sar as director of football with Zinedine Zidane or Mauricio Pochettino as manager would do nicely.

    Richard Fridl: Manchester United should go back to what made them so adored throughout the world. Young British talent with couple of great players to build around. High tempo,desire to the last second to win every game and a manager that is building for the future too. Can't be worse than this.

    Dave Pellow: Can we all please remember Jose Mourinho has spent £432m in his time at Man Utd. Perhaps he should improve and work with what he has got rather than moan at the club management?

    Manchester United

    Manchester United have unveiled their first ever pink shirt in homage to the city's newspaper past.

    The away kit is inspired by The Football Pink newspaper, which was created by the Manchester Evening News and went out on Saturday afternoons until its closure in 2007.

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez also played down suggestions of a rift between himself and skipper Jamaal Lascelles, who was left out of the team at the weekend and will miss Wednesday night's Carabao Cup trip to Nottingham Forest with an ankle injury.

    "I was talking with him before the game, because he came to support the team. After the game when he was leaving, I saw him," said Benitez.

    "I was talking with him this morning maybe three or four times because his partner is having a baby in a few days and we don't know when. I am asking him all the time."

    Asked if everything was OK between the pair, he replied: "Yes, fine."

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez on Sunday's defeat by Chelsea: "I was really pleased with the players – how hard they worked, and how well they did a lot of the things we practiced. We have to improve in transition and in attack.

    "We could have drawn against Tottenham, won against Cardiff and drawn against Chelsea. I am not happy that we didn’t get the points we deserved, but we are in a good position in terms of confidence in the team and the way we work."

    And we have had a second Tweet from a Manchester United player.

    That's about 15-2 now in favour of Tottenham players by my count.

  11. 'It is an important game'

    Nottingham Forest v Newcastle (Wednesday, 19:45 BST)

    Newcastle United

    "Nottingham Forest have a good team. I know Aitor Karanka, and he is a good manager. It is a massive club. It is an important game, and hopefully we can do well. If we can win with the players we put on the pitch, I will be happy with that.

    "I think we have experienced in the League Cup, and the FA Cup, that any team is very dangerous. Normally you approach the game changing players, because you have to give chances to other players and use your squad.

    "To have a cup run is always good for the spirit. But at the end, you know it is very difficult. You have to find the balance. At Valencia, you could change seven players and still win. Now, to change seven players and keep winning, only the top sides can do that."

    And Manchester United have a new kit. That will make it all better after last night.

    Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has been speaking ahead of Wednesday's Carabao Cup tie at Nottingham Forest, plus a few other bits and bobs.

    SMS Message: It still baffles me to see people blaming the players, particularly Paul Pogba, for United's poor displays. Jose Mourinho is supposed to give them a system to work in on the pitch and instill confidence off the pitch. Manchester United have no discernible attacking patterns on the field and Jose only seems capable of humiliating and chastising his players publicly off it. His time as a world class manager is over; like his best friend Arsene Wenger. from Tom, Rugby

    SMS Message: Jose Mourinho spends more time thinking about how he is going to defend his tactics to the media than actually really considering them. Why set up to defend against a team that finished 15th and scored less goals than all but three teams last season (Brighton) but go attacking and expose a weak defence to the side that scored the third amount of goals last year (Spurs)? As for Ander Herrera playing defensive midfield/centre-back/right-back/sweeper/his own made up position.... from Chris Lincoln

    Fahad Khan: Manchester United needs to be bold in their recruitment. Try to think about the next 20 year. Only name that comes to mind - Julian Nagelsmann

    "I think it’s time that I take a step back now. It’s the right moment to do that. I’ve been hugely proud of what I’ve achieved, over 60 caps, I’ve captained my country on a few occasions, which has been a huge honour and something I’ve been really proud of," Gary Cahill told Chelsea's official app, The 5th Stand.

    "At the same time, in your football career you never want to shut a door completely, I’ve been hugely honoured to play for my country and if I’m ever needed, I’m there."

    Cahill has won 61 caps for England since making his debut in September 2010, scoring five goals.

    MarcBE: Totally agree. Bring in Ryan Giggs. Get back to attacking football. Jose Mourinho doesn't believe his system can work at Man Utd. Why would his players?

    Jon Stone: Jose Mourinho wants respect. If he showed at least a little respect for others (including his own players) I think he would get the respect he deserves.

  19. Pochettino backs Loris after drink-driving charge

    Hugo Lloris

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said he "never considered" stripping goalkeeper Hugo Lloris of the captaincy or dropping him after he was charged with drink driving.

    France international Lloris, 31, was stopped by police in London in the early hours of Friday.

    He played in Spurs' 3-0 Premier League win at Manchester United on Monday.

    "Hugo knows he made a big mistake. We will support him, knowing it cannot be justified," said Pochettino.

    "He has apologised to fans, us, the whole country. He is punishing himself. He feels so bad."

    He has "wholeheartedly" apologised for the drink-driving incident, saying it was "completely unacceptable".

    Lloris was released on bail and is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, 11 September.
