 Request granted.

 Sparky's Hopes.
Mark Hughes is hoping that Coventry City complete the transfer of John Hartson this week. Hughes
admitted he is desperate to see the Hartson/Bellamy partnership at the Premiership club.

Hughes has said that Coventry will be getting their hands on a star. Both players could feature in attack for the World Cup matches against Armenia and Ukraine in March.

Hartson has said he wants the move sorted out once and for all.

Managers have bought John because they know they are getting a player with the ability to get goals as well as lead an attack.

 La Manga again?
The full FAW council meet in Cardiff on Monday.

Manager Mark Hughes is keen to take the squad again to La Manga but the Finance Committee has already refused permission. The full council will have to decide whether to back Mark Hughes or go with the Finance Committee decision and refuse the manager permission.

If that is the decision then there is a possibility that a friendly maybe arranged.
