My mate works at the Harvester near Crewe and has just text me to say Dario Gradi and Roy Keane have just come in and ordered a platter for two. You read it here first, Roy Keane will be the new Crewe Alex manager.
MAN UTD NEWS
Sir alex is happy with the defence and midfield cover avaialable. but is looking to strenghthen the wings and the foward positions. Tevez will not get a 30 mill permanant deal but will stat til the summer. Capmbell will be sold for 8 mill to either spurs or hull. manucho will go on loan to burnley in january,if he does well he will be given a chance next season or be offloaded.
incoming will be– tosic approx 7 mill in jan. in august ashley youn nd agbonlahor will sign for a fee of 30 mill. O'niell will only sell because he will be offered the utd job in 2 seasons time.
Liverpool won't be buying much in January, but actually Jermain Pennant and Charles Itandje will be in a transfer listed. As I suggest, Andrea Dossena will return to Italy on loan rather than for sell. It could be AC or Roma would like to offer a loan deal which they would be thinking to buy him from the Merseyside Club or not. Liverpool won't sell benayoun for a swap deal with Gareth Bale. They have enough full backs already. Emiliano Insua, Fabio Aurelio, Stephen Darby, Phillip Degen, Alvaro Arbeloa, and Andrea Dossena is already enough for the Merseyside Club. Those rumors from other is not real so don't put your minds on a stupid fake rumors. Lahm won't come. He is happy with Jurgen Klinsmann at Bayern Munich. They are no activity of buying Michael Owen back to Liverpool. They have enough striker. Robbie Keane will need to adapt with the team, if he is guarantee a first team sheet. He won't be going back to Spurs. Manchester City would have a some enormous among of activity in the transfer window with Ricardo Izecson Leite Dos Santos Kaka, David Sanchez Villa, Lassana Diarra, Ashley Cole, Lionel Messi, Marek Hamsik, and Roque Santa Cruz all in Mark Hughes wish list. The possibility of Kaka coming to eastland would be possible because Ronaldinho did all in this season. Which make Kaka become unhappy. He will join up Jo and Robinho in Mancity.
Where do you wassocks get your information on Rangers debt? Secured loans are fine provided you meet the down payments, so yes, if you want to call the loans secured against Ibrox debt feel free, but to do so you'd have to escalate every other clubs debts significantly. Give it a rest.
Also, how do you have it in good authority that Rangers debt is in the hundreds of millions? I admit it's fun to speculate but you talk nonsense buddy. Our finances are well under control and will continue to be so as we move along as we are doing. it may not yield the results of the past few years but will continue to do so.
Also, Rangers turned down £3m on Boydy at the start of the season, that wasn't enough money for him. Every player has his price, indeed, but we're not a selling club. The Hutton sale was essential, however Cuellars was purely down to his clause in the contract. That money was immediately spent on new players. Do people fail to see this?
Come on celtic fans get a grip!!!!!
(1) celtic to sign big! the league is in the bag!
you are 4 points ahead with 3 old firm games left which 2 are at ibrox.

(2) rangers to sell to survive what do we need to survive we got beat off hearts the woohoo they were there the capital team on form the tic got pumped off a team that hadn't won in 8 games.
(3) rangers are not in severe debt rangers fans have nuthing to worry about sir david will neva see us down the pan as he has so gracefuly proved in the past like sticking £50m in to clear debts money out of his own pocket and by not selling us to the first offer. he wants to make sure someone who the club and the fans will benifit from takes over££££££££££ know wat i mean.

Alot of rumours flying around today! Some good, some bad and then some are down right stupid – like the guys who said that Babel (spell his name right! it's not Babbel!) is going on loan to Stoke. Rafa didn't want him to go to Ajax so why the hell would he allow him to go to a worse team on loan – like Stoke.
Anyway, I'm not here to make crazy claims about who and who isn't, but did hear from a friend that works as a receptionist/secretary for Blackburn that there has being alot of communication between Blackburn and Liverpool in recent weeks regarding Benni McCarthy. She didn't give any specifics but is there a possibility of Benni going to Liverpool???
Mick McCarthy is a done deal. He`s going to be re–appointed Sunderland Manager. I know Mick and he is very happy at wolves but he cant turn down the chance to return to premiership football. I even have a photo of McCarthy on a secret meeting with Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn on 4th december 2008 at a bar in ireland. I also know who he`s transfer targets are and can reveal he has drawn up a huge wishlist of players he wants. He has also agreed to sign Robert Green/scott parker in a double deal from west ham for 8 £million with Anton Ferdinand returning to West Ham.
"To the person who said Lennon and O'Hara + £5milion for Robbie Keane you must be joking as the Keane deal was due to be paid in installments so the scousers still owe £10million! Plus on current form Lennon must be worth at least £12million."
It's clearly not their fault they stole this off the BBC gossip section or the newspaper
For some real inside info
Aguero to leave in Summer as Athelico getting poor
Not to chelsea, he hates them
Not to Arsenal, no chance
Not to City, His career isnt over
Straight race between UTD and LIVERPOOL although if ronaldo goes then Aguero to definetely to play for them
Barcelona will bid for fabregas but will be rejected by both wenger and fabregas as he wants to stay at the club as captain.
Sebastian Giovinco – Swap Deal + 5 Million
Daniel Van Buyten – 7.5 Million
Yaya Toure – 10 Million
Sturridge – 2.5 Million
Agbonlahor & Young – 20 Million For Both
Younster From Lower League Called Sam Parker – 100k – Watch Out For This Kid

Senderos – Milan Permanant Deal – 5 Million
Adebayor – AC Milan – 25 Million, May be In Summer
Denilson – Loan – Newcastle
Simpson – Loan – West Brom
Vela – Loan – West Brom
Wenger to spend big this season to try and boost the team to title contenders.
–––MAN CITY RUMOURS–––
City in desparate need of a quality Left Back are currently watching German International Left Back Philipp Lahm at Bayern Munich, although a possibility to sign in January, more likely to sign in the Summer. They will sign Peruvian Striker Roque Santa Cruz from Blackburn Rovers to partner Robinho in January. Hughes' also wanting to make the City Midfield slightly more defensive with signing of Lassana Diarra from Portsmouth. With Mark Hughes looking to strengthen the City defence, expect to see a quality Centre Back also bought –possibly/probably Kolo Toure from Arsenal– to partner Richard Dunne in Defence also in January.
Elano and Jo could both leave, but not until at least the Summer, although Jo may go on loan back to his old club. Others than should be prepared to make way come the Summer are Michael Ball, Danny Mills, Dietmar Hamann and Darius Vassell.
MCFC The Citizen.
Andrei Arshavin to Real Madrid in January. Arshavin has announced that contact has been made between Madrid and Zenit, and Juande Ramos will now be able to und the move, which he was unable to do at Spurs. The cost would be around 20 mil. This will mean that Madrid will no longer chase Ronaldo, as Arshavin and Ronaldo are very similar players. However Ronaldo will sign for Madrid in the future. Fabregas will quit Arsenal in 2014 when his contract at the Emirates is up and not before. Do not worry, as Denilson will be ready to take Fabregas' place in the first team by then. Fabregas will join Barcelona as a free agent in the summer of 2014. The swap deal between Chelsea and Inter with Drogba and Adriano could take place as early as Jan, with Anelka looking ready to take Drogbas place.
Big movements at Celtic this xmas: OUT: JVOH (ajax 6m) Nakamura (yokohama 7m) McGeady (swap for Kuyt) Donati (Palermo 4.6m) Killen (Hibs 2m) IN: Kuyt (liverpool swap for wee Aiden) Maxi Rodreguez (ath. madrid 5m) Colloccini (Newcastle 5m), Big Artur is staying for the long term despite what the daily ranger says.
I have it on good authority that Wim Jansen will be appointed as new Sunderland boss next week. Chris Woerts is a close friend of the former Celtic chief and is keen to bring him to the Stadium of Light. Jansen worked closeley with Woerts at Feyenoord and is understood to be very interested in the position.
Watch this space.
Celtic will bring in 3 more players to ensure 4 in a row.
A decent striker, a left back and maybe a goalie to try to get boruc a bit of competion.
Rangers will not be spending any money, a few loan signings look certain and they will be trying to "off load" any players that they get a decent offer for.
Rangers need to sell before they can spend, but with murrays companys struggling in the current credit crisis it will be a case of selling players to try and balance the books of MIH.
Still no sign of the new stadium – another murray myth from the laptop loyal.
Big changes at Ewood Park. With Ince's position hanging by a loose thread. Graeme Souness awaits having only been informed of blackburn's interest at the weekend. Outs in january are RSC to City for 12million + Jo, Samba to newcastle for 2million + Duff, Roberts to stoke for 2million,Mokoena to Hull for 1.5. Ins will be: Jo(exchange),Duff(exchange),Appiah on a free, Eboue from Arsenal for 3million,Joaquin from Valencia for 7million, Bellamy for 4million, Alex from Chelsea for 3million.All these players will have a relegation fee agreed in their contracts for this season only, the remaining budget will be used towards the huge wages these players will require.
"rangers slashed their debts to approx 20mill about 3/4 years ago mate :), and they are reducing– rangers made a profit of over 20million last season." In 2000, Murray's company invested £32miilion and in the last share issue Murray invested a further £50million. When he sells up he will want to recoup this so anyone buying from him will have to pay what Murray wants – essentialy the debt is still with Rangers. Hutton was sold for a reported £9million on 30 January and, funnily enough, the financial year for the company ended that day, allowing them to report a £5million profit. Expect any decent bids for Rangers' players to be accepted in January. I may be a Celtic fan but it was actually a Rangers fan who alerted me to this. Andy
Arsenal to sign chamackh from bordeaux (dont know how to spell his name)
also don't rule a bid for alou diarra of bordeaux as well
I can reveal, although I shouldn't, that Paul Ince is Sunderlands first choice to replace Roy Keane. Talks are taking place, but don't expect any announcements soon. There are three other candidates if Ince decides to stay at Blackburn.
Newcastle are selling 11 first team players in January.
The 11 players are:
Will also sell Tim Krul to Ajax. (90% done deal)
Joe want's to sign atleast 6 players and has put together a shortist and here are the names i've been given:
B.Balde – (Agreed a deal with Celtic)
J.Arne Riise (Loan)
Looks as though Newcastle have to pay Real Mallorca £8million in compensation for Jonas Gutierrez.
Sending Nacho Gonzalez back to Valencia.
Lots of ins and outs at West Ham in Jan as Zola cuts the wage bill and looks to build the team he wants. OUT: Walker, Spector, Gabbidon, Neill, Bowyer, Quashie, Etherington, Boa–Morte, Ashton, Di Michele, Cole. IN: G.Johnson, N'Zogbia, Pazzini, Benayoun.
I told you about 2 weeks ago that huntelaar would be brought in by real madrid. And now they are about to get a second signing. Angel di maria of benfica.
Also arsenal will sign xabi alonso and felipe melo in january. Man utd will sign no–one. Liverpool to sign barry. Chelsea to sign tuncay sanli, yes of middlesbrough. Man city will sign cambiasso, and maybe david villa but that is more likely to be in the summer. villa will sign no–one. everton will sign bendtner IF eduardo performs to his full potential. oh and yeah arsenal will sign mario gomez
