20-20 Vision

‘CHELSEA have agreed a £7m deal to take Wayne Bridge from Southampton to Stamford Bridge. That’s in the Sun, and in the Mirror, the Blues have just bid £20m to make Patrick Vieira another Chelsea player.

Tiger keeps crowds at bay with his 9-iron

Chelsea clearly fancy their chances in making the great Frenchman one of their own, and have apparently given Arsenal a 22-day deadline to make up the minds or lose the deal.

And the answer would be pretty conclusive ‘Non!’, especially since the Sun says that United have bid the same £20m and thrown in Fabien Barthez.

Not that you can see Arsenal taking the option of losing their captain to their main rivals and then taking on a goalkeeper of questionable confidence.

As footballers jostle for position, British sports fans get too close to Tiger Woods.

The Express watches as Woods leaves the 18th green after finishing his practice round at Royal St George’s and is mobbed by fans.

Indeed the enthusiastic ones probably pose more of a threat to Woods that the man the Mail says he’ll play with in the first two rounds of The Open.

A 25-year-old from Hemel Hempstead by the name of Luke Donald will share tee times with the world’s No.1.

And he is full of confidence. ‘To become the best player in the world and have no limelight would be my ideal scenario,’ he tells the Mail.

That’s about as likely to happen as, well, Donald becoming the world’s No.1. But we wish him the best of luck this Thursday.

The other big event of the weekend, says the Star, is the British Grand Prix.

Two things can be guaranteed by its presence – first, a Schumacher will win the race; secondly, it will rain heavily.

It’s hard to know which is more depressing…
