The only updates today are about Roberto Martinez. Whelan, loving his time back in the press (!) says that Martinez will make up his mind on Tuesday and there will be a press conference tomorrow to announce if he is staying or going. There seems confusion as to whether Liverpool have made an offer, or indeed whether we have. Frankly, I don`t care, what will be will be!

Whelan also says Martinez is a 12 hour a day, seven day a week manager and will give his all wherever he ends up next season.
