So King Richard III is staying in Leicester. Nigel Pearson is said to be delighted and has offered him a three year contract. "We think along side Matthew Upson they will form an experienced back 4 to stop the Premier Leagues big boys"
Leicester City's preparations for the club's Premier League return continued on Friday as Matthew Upson joined on a one-year deal. The 35-year-old defender has moved on a free transfer after his one-year contract at Brighton and Hove Albion expired and becomes the second arrival in the space of as many days following the signing of goalkeeper Ben Hamer. With over 400 appearances under his belt at club level, Upson adds plenty of experience to the Leicester ranks and was capped 21 times for England. The majority of Upson's career has been spent in the top flight with the likes of Birmingham City, West Ham and Arsenal and he is relishing the chance of being back in the Premier League after Leicester romped to the Championship title. "This is too good an opportunity to turn down," Upson told the club's official YouTube channel. Nigel Pearson's men had the second- best defensive record in the Championship this season behind only Burnley, who also sealed automatic promotion along with Leicester.

This petition thing for Tom Cleverly to be banned from the England squad is pathetic and childish. I agree he hasn't played at all well this season but neither has the rest of the man united team i don't see anyone signing a petition for the others to be banned from their national squad. Those fans that have signed it are the sort of fans that write England off and slag them off at each tournament. Gareth Southgate missed a penalty at euro 96, David Beckham was sent off at World Cup 98, David Seaman wasn't on his line for the Ronaldinho goal, Matthew Upson got the blame for one if Germany's goals on the break at the 2010 World Cup even though John Terry, Ashley Cole and Glen Johnson Were all meant to be back supporting him.
Blimey I know Matthew Upson has been around a bit but he done well for Brighton in the FA Cup against Hull City last night he played the entire game plus he was a sub as well !
Matthew Upson, Federicho Macheda, Jesse Lindegard, Chris Burke, Luciano Becchio or Max Gradel would all be good and much needed signings for Leeds, my trips home and away would much more enjoyable with a bigger squad!!! MOT

He gets a boot on the bonce today, plays the rest of the game bandaged, defends brilliantly and scores the winner... with his head. Now the Seagulls are within striking distance of the play-offs.
It's not every day that Matthew Upson wins you £100.
Happy with that a point for the Redz after being 0-2 down in 10 minutes. Brilliant fightback in 2nd half! And another 3 points on the road for the mighty Seagulls - thank you Matthew Upson!!

A victorious Queens Park Rangers have gone level at the top of the Championship after joint leaders Leicester City dropped points in a 2-1 defeat to managerless Sheffield Wednesday. Goals from Charlie Austin - his fifth goal in five games for Harry Redknapp’s side - Junior Hoilett and Matt Phillips sealed a comfortable win over the Cherries at Loftus Road, as the Londoners bounced back superbly from their disappointing defeat to Doncaster at the weekend. Meanwhile, Leicester surrendered their three-point lead at the league summit following a below par performance at Hillsborough, as Wednesday claimed their second win of the season thanks to on-loan Sunderland striker Connor Wickham’s brace. The England Under-21s star netted twice to earn the Owls all three points after falling behind to Anthony Knockaert’s early strike after just three minutes. With the Foxes defeated, Burnley had the opportunity to go top by a point with a win over Watford, but could only manage a goalless stalemate, leaving the Cl ...

Brighton 1 - 2 Barnsley: Matthew Upson scores for Brighton in the 63' minute
Nathan Jones confirmed that they will monitor the fitness of Kazenga LuaLua (knee), Leo Ulloa (foot) and Will Buckley (hamstring) ahead of the Barnsley game. The trio have been sidelined through their respective injuries but all are now in full training. Jones told, “We have to see how they train and we will gauge how they are then. We don’t want too many players on our bench that cannot come on and really impact the game. “It is nice putting names on the bench but it is better having players that can come on and make an impact, so we will pick our squad accordingly.” Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) is still hopeful of a return before the New Year, while Will Hoskins (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

In world football, referees have one of the toughest jobs, as every one of their decisions could have a major role in the outcome of the game, and possibly the season as well. Every referee has to make difficult decisions and will get criticized at some point of time by players, managers and the fans. The good referees are those who can live with criticism and can make the correct decision most of the times. An official's instincts are crucial to their decision making and there is every possibility of him making a serious blunder in a game. For example, the Chelsea vs. Barcelona game in the Champions League a couple of seasons ago drew the ire of Chelsea players, in particular Michael Ballack, who went so far as to run alongside the official for at least 10 yards, screaming and flailing his arms in anger. It was a difficult game for the referee and he came under immense scrutiny. Similarly, in the game between Arsenal and Barcelona, Robin van Persie's very harsh sending-off proved to be the difference as ...

The Premier League has made available the 2013 Premier League Free Transfer List, with a number of high profile players not offered new contracts with their clubs. Last season’s runners up Manchester City have released Wayne Bridge, Roque Santa Cruz and Kolo Toure amongst others, with the latter set to join Liverpool next month. Arsenal have let the most players go, with Andrey Arshavin, Denilson and Sebastien Squillaci the biggest names to have left the club. Yossi Benayoun, Florent Malouda and Paolo Ferreira head the list of Chelsea casualties, while goalkeepers Hilario and Ross Turnbull have also been told to find new clubs. Two time Premier League winner William Gallas has been released by Tottenham Hotspur, along with David Bentley, who has fallen way down the pecking order at White Hart lane in recent seasons. Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, Matthew Upson of Stoke City and Sunderland’s Titus Bramble are some of the other notable names on the list.
Forget a 5-a-side free transfer team this Summer of Mark Schwarzer, Matthew Upson, David Bentley, Andrey Arshavin, and Florent Malouda. . . the most notable players being released by Premier League clubs this Summer are Hilario, Titus Bramble, Sanchez Watt, Rory Delap and Carlton Cole!

19:45 Brighton v Blackburn TIP:1 STAKE:7/10 ODDS: 2.10 Narrow win to give Brighton a play-off boost Saturday’s 1-0 home win over promotion hopefuls Hull was just what Brighton needed to revive their play-off hopes. But having ended a three-match run without a victory through Spanish playmaker Vicente’s first goal of the season, Gus Poyet’s team must now keep the momentum going. Brighton have managed only six wins in their last 23 league games, 11 of which have ended in draws – and that is the reason they have slipped behind in the race to reach the top six. Poyet remains without forward Ashley Barnes, who serves the second game of a three-match ban imposed for his sending off during the 3-1 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on February 2. With Barnes out, Craig Mackail-Smith is set to retain his place up front alongside new signing Leonardo Ulloa, brought in from Spanish club Almeria last month.

Tony Pulis has submitted his revised 25-man playing squad for the remainder of the Barclays Premier League campaign . . . and it includes United States international Brek Shea, after he completed a 2.5m move to the Britannia Stadium on Thursday. The City boss swooped for the highly rated 22-year-old winger on what again proved to be a hectic transfer deadline day, which also saw England international goalkeeper Jack Butland pen a long term deal with the Club from Birmingham City. However, the 19-year-old Bristol born stopper isnt included in the latest squad, after agreeing to remain at St Andrews until the end of the campaign, to gain further football league experience. Texas born Shea is one of two new inclusions in the squad, the other being Malian striker Mamady Sidibe, who was previously left out due to injury. The pair fill two of the three voids left by the departed Rory Delap (Barnsley, loan), Matthew Upson (Brighton & Hove Albion, loan) and Maurice Edu (Bursaspor, loan). The likes of Belgian star ...
- Matthew Upson set to join Brighton on loan
Stoke boss Tony Pulis last night pulled off the signings of goalkeeper Jack Butland and Brek Shea for a combined fee of £5.5m. And there was a late bid to capture Birmingham defender Curtis Davies as defensive cover after Matthew Upson who joined Brighton on loan until the end of the season. On a typically dramatic day of business ahead of last night's 11pm deadline, Stoke also considered moves for Bolton left-back Marcos Alonso and Blackburn defender Scott Dann. Rory Delap departed Stoke for Barnsley, but efforts to send Wilson Palacios to Aston Villa came to nothing (Jon)

TEAM NEWS Manchester City make two changes from the side that clinched a dramatic win over Norwich on Saturday, with Joleon Lescott replacing Matija Nastasic in defence and James Milner comes into their midfield for the suspended Samir Nasri, who begins a three-match ban for his red card against the Canaries. "Stoke defenders Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron return from suspension and midfielder Charlie Adam makes his first start since the death of his father a fortnight ago. Cameron Jerome is rewarded for his stunning late equaliser against Southampton with a recall, with Matthew Upson, Ryan Shotton, Michael Kightly and Matthew Etherington the players making way.

Fortress britannia match report Stoke 3 -3 Southampton We have conceded only four goals at home in the Barclays Premier League all season and boasted the best defensive record in the division, but shipped three in the first Captain Ryan Shawcross and full-back Geoff Cameron were both serving one-match suspensions for picking up five yellow cards, with Matthew Upson and Ryan Shotton started the game and all though they played well the unity of the back 5 was not there. Poor defending allowed Rickie Lambert to open the scoring after 10 mins. It was the first chance of the game and none of the make shift defenders cut out Do Prado's cross and Lambert had the simple task of poking in at the back post. We should have equalised within two minutes when Nzonzi's shot was deflected to Jones in space at the back post, but shot wide. However, kenwyne sent his wife in the stands mental, causing her almost to fall of her seat as the striker made amends in the 16th minute in some style with a lovely backheel that if sc ...
Tony Pulis will be relishing another fixture in front of a raucous Britannia crowd as his in-form Stoke outfit look to extend their unbeaten Premier League run to 10 matches against relegation-threatened Southampton and potentially above Arsenal into seventh place. The Potters impressed in their 3-1 dismantling of Liverpool on Boxing Day, the first time they have scored more than twice in a Premier League match all season and the attacking threat from strike duo Jonathan Walters and Kenwyne Jones should see them keep their places ahead of Peter Crouch. Elsewhere, Pulis has selection issues defensively with captain Ryan Shawcross and right-back Geoff Cameron suspended after picking up their fifth bookings of the season against Liverpool, with Matthew Upson and Ryan Shotton, himself returning from suspension, poised to deputise. Visitors Southampton will be looking to build on their promising point picked up at Craven Cottage against Fulham but will be aware that taking only their second away league victory ...
Stoke City manager Tony Pulis: "We just want to build a football club and build it properly over a period of time." Team news: Pulis is pondering his options for the right-back slot with Ryan Shotton serving a one-match ban. The full-back was dismissed in the 90th minute of last Saturday's goalless draw at Aston Villa, collecting two yellow cards, and now Pulis must decide between Andy Wilkinson, Dean Whitehead or Matthew Upson as his replacement. Pulis welcomes back Charlie Adam, with the midfielder completing his own one-game suspension, but there is still no room for Michael Owen as the striker remains short of fitness following recent groin and hamstring niggles. Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Cameron, Adam, Upson, Wilkinson, Whelan, Etherington, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Kightly, Edu, Nzonzi, Ness, Whitehead.

Rafa Benitez has accused former Liverpool owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett of destroying the club's best recent chance to win the Premier League title. Benitez guided the Reds to second place in 2009 and said he believed the addition of three key players over the summer could have brought the title to Anfield in 2010. In his new book, Champions League Dreams, he accused Hicks and Gillett of wrecking the chance for Liverpool to claim a first title since 1990 by tightening the budget and forcing him to be "a bank manager". Benitez had planned to sign either Sylvain Distin or Matthew Upson to provide centre-back cover, as well as Fiorentina forward Steven Jovetic, but was unable to land any of them and lost his job in June 2010 after the club had slipped to seventh in the Premier League. "For five years I had been a football manager at Liverpool. By the start of my sixth, it was clear I had become something else entirely. I was suddenly supposed to be a bank manager," he wrote. "Decisions were being made ...
