Gday - Mr Hiddinks friend here.Havent got much to report concerning guus & chelski as i havent spoken with him for a few weeks(in moscow with russian team) but i can tell you that his buddy neeskens sent a barca scout to sydney to check out lucas neill. I admit i don't know much about liverpools nterest in him but up until last night liverpool would not have got him as barcelona were in the race for his signature. However after his indifferent performance last night, barcas interest has cooled somewhat. Also, I can't verify how accurate this is, but ive heard arsenal may have also had an interest in him.Pavel nedved to move to arsenal in the summer for 1 million on a one year deal as he wants one last chance to lift the european cup and he feels arsenals the team he can win it with.
also lucas neill to barcelona for 2 million as frank rikjard likes hes versatality at rght back and in the centre as lilian thuram is ageing and rikjard could be left with only puyol marquez and oleguar as his central defenders while he can still cover zambrotta at right backCeltic Transfer News

Summer will see another preseason tour to america in julyI think that January is going to be a very busy transfer window in Italy and England. First Buffon, Camoranesi and Trezeguet are going to leave Juventus. Buffon would like to stay in Itlay and may join Inter or Milan but may be attracted by a bid from Barcelona or Arsenal altough Man utd may make a cheeky bid for him. Camoranesi wants to move to Lyon with Liverpol also a likely destination and Trezeguet may end up playin with United or Mial because they need a replacer for Shevchenko because Oliveira is not shevchenko's style. Adriano may leave because he is worth a first team slot and may join Real Madrid or Chelsea with Unoited showing interest as well. Arsenal will make a bid for Ribery but will be joined by Real madrid Lyon Miolan and United. Mascherano and Tevez are going to stay with West Ham this season but they may move at the end of it. Mascherano may end playing with Juventus or Roma or Man United and Tevez may end with Newcastle, Roma or Milan. Kerlon is a target of both Inter and United . About Torres he is going to stay with Atletoco till the end of the season. No deal is made with any club. But in Summer there are going to be bids for him and the most liekley destintation is Old Trafford and not Liverpoll or Newcastle or Arsenal. Real Msdrid Barca Milan Chelsea and United may foght for his signature because the clause now is less and about 26 millionGenuine transfer: Downing to Tottenham in January, I met him in Zagreb and he said he wants to leave for tottenham. Also young centre back Alex Perry from Doncaster Rovers is to be snapped up by Ipswich following an impressive run of form in the reservesManchester United squad at end of season. 1)VAN DER SAR 2) NEVILLE 3) EVRA 4) HEINZE 5) FERD'ND 6)BROWN 7)RONALDO 8)ROONEY 9) SAHA 10)TORRES 11) GIGGS 12) HEITINGA 13) PARK 14)PEDERSON 15) HARGREAVES 16) CARRICK 17) KERLON 18) SCHOLES 19) KERLON 20) SOLSKJAER 22) O'SHEA 23) NAN
I 24) FLETCHER 25)JONES 27) SILVESTRE 29)KUSCZCAK 42) ROSSI PS. Pls can Manchester United fans stop linking us with Bale Kaka etc. and pls tell me who Sheasy is in our current squad coz on manutd.com fletchers interview he mentioned sheasy n i dunno who he is????? Also LENNON CAN BE SIGNED INSTEAD OF PEERSON BUT 90% ITS MOTERN GAMST PEDDY. Also Lpool fans stop dreaming bout Vincete, Villa, Torres and Alves. ALVES TO MADRID and BALE TO ARSENAL. BAPTISTA DEAL PERMANENT AND MANUEL FERNANDES TO PENRMANENT DEAL AT POMPEY. BECKHAM 2 END CAREER AT MADRID AND VILLA WILL BUY MALONEY. NANI - only possibel destination is Man UTD. GO RED DEVILS! - Ali ps excuse spellingsIt is sad to see Liverpool fans exxagerate to such an extent: why would VILLA sign for you?
ON one hand you have Valencia chasing a title with Villa at the helm and on the other an over-rated under-performing Liverpool, he ain't nuts.
anyways in jan the only transfer possible for the reds is of the talented ALVES as rafa has already a big squad in his hands!
AND PLEASE STOP DREAMING REDS!!I'm a leeds fan and all the muppets frm norwich who think they are getting tilson or curbishly, wake up. Curbishly already turned u down and southend won't let tilson go to leeds or west brom so why would he go to a smaler club than those two.
the managers going to the championship clubs are
west brom - tony mowbary
Norwich - Kevin blackwell/blackburn assistant
Leeds - Curbishly/Mcleish
Also in order to improve the clubs fortunes leeds will sign a fair fwe players depending on the manager.
Curbishly: m bent(loan), holland 200k, brunt 500k, b.jones 250k, halford 1m, j.fortune (loan)
Mcleish: Novo 250k, ricksen 500k, boyd (loan thn 1.5m at end of season le guen doesn't rate him), mecregor free (reserve goalie but has played amazing wen given 1st team chances)Kevin nolan to liverpool 4 around 6 mil+zendenTo all you daft scousers and mancs, ur clubs won't be siginng any big names cos u av no money. I'm a leeds fan and thees are the deals that are really goin to happen.
Man Utd: no one in or out
Liverpool: Neil(3.5m), Zenden(released)
arsenal: ribery (deal worth 18m), ustari (2m), bale(3m then loaned bck to saren'ts)
Newcastle: C davies (6m), bridge (loan), milner(3m), luque (7m)To the guy who said arsenal don't have money you are 100% wrong we have at least 30m we don't waste money on overpriced players like Manu & chelski wenger looks for young players. in january we will sign ribery for a fee around 12m gareth bale is possible depending on the fee also a goalkeeper will arrive but not until the summer lehman is doing ok so far this season watch this space plus we have so many young and talented players coming through arsene does not need to spend 18-20m on players that's why arsenal will dominate for the next decade also rooney should be dropped out of the england squad with theo walcott replacing him defoe over rated so he will go to man u sometime soonMAN UTD news
I've heard that Pierre-Andre Gignac is heading for Old Trafford next summer. Really nice player but i think he still lucks experience to play for Man UTd. Nani is also a certaren'ty for Red Devils next summerTo the silly person who said "don't expect 2 see arsenal move 4 giles barnes because we already have matthew connolly who is soon 2 play this season ."
Giles Barnes = Midfielder, classy ball player.
Matt Connolly = Centre Half.
That's like saying Man Utd won't sign Torres because they've got John O'Shea. Whether Arsenal want to sign GB or not, its got nothing to do with Connolly.Just so everyone knows,, Bale will be going to liverpool not arsenal,,, he noticed what happed to theo and doesn't want the same treatment,, plus his dads a LFC supoorter,, Other transfers for Rafa, ( hes looking at a another brazilian wonderkid ( don't know his name )), also possible defoe or hunntlar, with fowler or crouch being sold, rafa was after a 20 goal a seasonstriker and thinks he goofed with bellamy,,, so hes on the look out again. He would love villa or torres but knows he needs to sell to even attempt at getting them, warnock might go out on loan, and we might sell kewell and zenden,, which means more replacemenst coming in ! hes slowly introducing gonzalez and by the end of the season should be a regular. Agger will take over hyypias spot, and hyypia will move into the backroom !the future bright the futures RED of liverpool! Duff. .GOOONERNEWS Ok let's stop all of these pathetic rumours?Franck Ribery will be an Arsenal player in either January or Summer,Craig Gordon is now the favorite to replace Jens Lehmann and Gareth Bale will also sign in January?No more Buffon,Ustari,Abidal and Camoranasi rumours please.Liverpool have agreed a £7m fee for River Plate striker Gonzalo Higuain, but he won't sign until next summer. Gareth Bale will sign for Liverpool but not for anothrr 2 years. It is all agreed with Southampton who will continue to develop him. The cost? £5m upfront + add ons.I heard from my uncles mate who works at st.james park, who was talking to the stadium manager and the stadium manager told him that James Beattie will sign in January and also Dave Nugent will sign in January. The stadium manager also hinted that Jonathon Woodgate was gutted that Newcastle didn't go for him because Newcastle were his number 1 priority. He hinted that Woodgate wil
l sign for the Toon in the summer.
Beattie: 3 mil
Nugent: 4 mil
Remember you heard it of me firstMan utd are going to sign NANI, Hetinga, kerlon who will be loaned out to charlton, and maybe torres and hargreaves depending on his fitness.
Trust me i knowNorwich News! Martin Hunter had an interview for job today 4points from next 2 games and he is in. I also saw Glen Hoddle at Carrow Road today!First off, Maloney will be back in Celtic team this week as McGeady is out injured for the next few weeks, so Maloney will recement his place. He will also sign a 4year deal before Celtic's home game against Man Utd. Kris Boyd will not move to Man Utd as he isn't an international class striker. Instead a move to Newcastle is more likely as they need a big centre forward. Craig Gordon will move to Aston Villa for 3million as MON is a big fan and Gordon is fed up with Romanovs meddling in first team matters.Spurs will sign Martin Petrov from Athletico Madrid for £8 million. Not Downing as he has had a string of dissapointing performances in the England Squad, he is awful. Also they will sign SWP or Joe Cole from Chelsea.January transfer news
arsenal will make 2 signings 1 big signing and 1 no so high profiled but young signing they will sign pavel nedved of juventus and stephen naismith of kilmarnock
celtic will sign either francesco toldo or julio cesar both from inter milan and will also put in a bid of anything up to 10.2 million + jiri jarosok (as he is not breaking into the starting 11) for klass-jan huntelaar of ajax (very unlikly to get him)celtic will also release paul telfer and sell alan thompson and shaun maloney to aston villa as martin o'neil is very interested as he knows what they are capable of from previous times at celtic they will get sold for a total of 8.25 mil but that will be raised to 11.3 mil due to monthly payments
Man U will sign fernando torres and raul gonzalez they want the two to play up-front with rooney as they are going to switch to a 4-3-3 formation with carrick ronaldo and fletcher in the midfield and the strikers set up with torres just infront
hearts are in talks with arsenal over craig gordon hearts want 7.5 mil + mart poom(year long loan deal) and justin hoyte
valeri bojinov of juventus might be making his way to west ham who think he will make a helping hand to tevez
all these rumours r 100% TRUE!!To the person who admonishes the Leeds fan for claiming that Curbishley will go to Elland Road when he has allegedly said he only wants a premiership club, you should look more closely at the various comments that have been made. Curbs categorically stated that he was not interested in the WBA & Norwich jobs but said "he was flattered to be linked with the Leeds job but was not available for work until the end of October". It was his agent who said that he wanted a Premiership position. Bates is waiting to speak to him and he will be the new Leeds Utd manager.Manchester to sign Nani, Hargreaves and Torres. Heard it from pupil, who lives in Manchester and know ManU stuff. True 100%.West ham will keep tevez and mascherano and will also sign jason koumas steven taylor in jhanuaryWest Ham rumour (dependant on takeover situations).
If the club have money then they would be interested in taking Leighton Baines from Wigan (using McCartney as bait - bit strange as he's only just signed) to be honest not sure about this rumour. To be honest if there is money to spend the players form the U-21 squad that we have been looking at are Micah Richards (Man City will deal at around £6 mill), Tom Huddlestone (Spurs are open to offers around £3m) & James Milner (NUFC looking for £5m).
Also expect an enquiry about Gareth Bale to Southampton & Lewin Nyatanga at Derby.
There are a number of other targets being looked at: Tranquillo Barnetta (Bayer Leverkusen), Lionel Messi (Barca), Esteban Cambiasso (Imter), Javier Saviola (Barca), Hugo Viana (Valencia), Helder Postiga (St Etienne), Craig Gordon (Hearts), Aiden McGeadie (Celtic), Shaun Maloney (Celtic) & David Marshall (Celtic). Out of these players no idea who is a real possibilty but all have been looked at as possibly good enough for the premiership.
Just hope some come true for everyone and the takeover gets sorted.Liverpool will sign one of each category eith in Jan or the SUmmer
RB: Neill Alves Richards
LB- only of they can get bale
Lm: tracking Vicente,j.cole (unhappy at chelsea)
RM: simao alves w.philios cole lennon (wants to go back to north)
FC: defoe, villa, torres (garcia to go bak to spain)somebody unknown
CM: somoza, bartin, nolan, zapatar
outs will be kewell/zenden, fowler (background coaching/player)diao pongolle dudek/kirklandLiverpool manager Rafael Benitez will try to bring in former striker Titi Camara as part of his backroom staff. Camara had stints at West Ham and Qatar Club after leaving Liverpool, and is now looking for a temporary role as a coach. Benitez could be willing to offer him an original contract until the end of the season.One person on here stated that the man utd team of 06/07 would include new signings such as-torres, bale, heitinga,hargreaves, nani and kerlon. torres at least £27million, hargreaves at least £15 million, nani( manager said he wouldn't't sell for under £17 million), bale £3 million, kerlon at least £8 million, and heitinga at least £10 million. this adds up to £63million. i am a man utd fan but even i no that we have no-where near enough money to buy all these. I believe utd will have £20 million to spend in january for the rest of the year. I believe they will buy bastian schweinsteiger for £10 million(one yr left on contract) and bale, the welsh prodigy for £3 million. that is all with about £7 million for the summer window.West Ham's poor start to the season & the fuss around Reo-Coker's captain's armband incident has alerted Martin Jol, Harry Redknapp & Martin O'Neill to try to lure him away during the transfer window. O'Neill has Learner's money burning a hole in his pocket & is ready to make a move for Darren Bent(Charlton) & Shaun Malony(Celtic) in January.Hibs already have a list drawn up for Mowbray's replacement as manager. Due to financial constaraaren'ts they will probably go for an available manager, but some under contract are on the list, which is: ex-player Mixu Paatelainen, former manager Bobby Williamson, John Collins, ex Hearts assitant, and Hibs coach Donald Park and ex Norwich manager, Nigel Worthington.Derby County will sign Johnathan
Stead on a 3 month loan deal within the next week.Some of the rumours on here make me laugth. but the only message i sent on here was wen bellion was sighn 4 man u in a season in advance, e told me because i was in lillishall wiv him,but again i got a fact expect curtis davies at villa in january
