Rumours from St. Andrews: My steward informer has offered up the following gems: Bruce to loan BENDTNER back in January – for two reasons: relationship with Arsenal has brought us some top players and Bruce wants to keep it going – and we are still desperate for goals. BENDTNER is unhappy at lack of games and Bruce would welcome him back. With OUBINAs injury, Buruce also is keeping tabs on a number of central midfielders including: GILBERTO (Arsenal – unhappy at lack of games may move on loan), FLETCHER (Man United. – as Gilberto), BRUINS (I think he sai he played for Feyenoord in Holland – apparently a rising start in the Dutch league). Blues to stay up. Just.
Liverpool FC Going To Sign Samir Nasri Known As The New Zidane For $12 Million Pounds And Alfonso Alves For $10 Million Pounds. In The Summer, They Will Sign Vincent Kompany For $8 Million Pounds And Diego Ribas Of Werder Bremen For $ 17 Million Pounds.
Whoever it was that said Warnock will sign Kazim–Richards from Sheff United is wrong. He signed for a turkish club–fenebahce or besiktas in the Summer and has broken into the turkish national squad and featured in Europe.
Onto a proper rumour– Shola Ameobi to leave Newcastle in January–expect Middlesborough and Sunderland to try but also a surprise suitor in Manchester City as Eriksson rates him. A fee in the region of 4–5 million also makes him cheap. Newcastle to replace him by moving for Crouch, Adriano of Baptista, depending on there situations. Michael Owen will be going nowhere until the Summer because if Newcastle fail to qualify for Europe, his release Clause is just £6 million.
MAN UNITED: – None
ARSENAL: – Lehmann Out, Bendtner Out (Loan)
CHELSEA: – None
LIVERPOOL: – Kewell Out, Pennant Out, Crouch Out, Mascherano In
MAN CITY: – Lehmann In, Vieira In, Owen In, Crouch In
NEWCASTLE: – Owen Out
To the guy who said Rafa will get rid of Crouch, Carson, Riise and Kewell to make way for Quaresma, Silva, Villa and Alves
Are you mad, that is probably around 80 million pounds wirth of talent with no more than 30 coming in? Rafa is happy with his squad, expect Crouch to go to City for 10–12 million and Martins to come in for a similar price. Other than that no movement until Summer at the earliest.
I live in Spain and the local papers reported the presence of sir Alex at the FC Barcelona–Atletico game. They claim he was there to scout Atleticos Raul Garcia along with FC Barcelona's Wonder–kid Gio Dos Santos. There are also rumours that he might move for David Villa at the end of the season following the relative success of Torres in England
Preposterous rumours on this site lack all credibility such as stating Arsenal will sell Flamini. Fact Wenger wants him to sign a new contract which is expiring and if he refuses he will leave in the Summer on a free or for a nominal compensation fee due to his youth.
Well there is a good news for all Liverpool fans as Liverpool are targetting a wonder boy from river plate his names is antonio menez and is 17 and recently scored a hatrick and is the youngest player to hit a hatrick in the argentine league well hope he joins but Man United are also targeting this hitman and both teams are closly keeping an eye on this wonder the price will be about 13.5 million pounds which could be raised to £16 million but in the end it will all depend on the money who is willing to pay more for him and I think it will be Liverpool as they need a player like Fernando Torres on the team well good luck to Liverpool1
Expect afonso Alves to be transferred to Liverpool in January for about £10 million. Krkic of FC Barcelona will be going to Arsenal with alexander Hleb going the other way. Also expect Peter Crouch to be gone by feb. Villa Middlesbrough and the banoffes Everton to be interested in the basket ball player 100 percent true
Modric + Green –> Arsenal, £12 million combined
appiah 6 – 8 mil
Nicklas Bendtner loan (African cup nations)
Graveson 1 – 2 mill
pienarr 3 mill
Daniel Carvalho 10 mill
Guti 5–6 million ( if he has bad season at Rea; )
Justin Hoyte 4 mill
Mr. KnowItAll here. Same guy that brought you the hottest and truest rumours of the Summer transfer season. The one who put Torres at Anfield and Tevez at Old Trafford. Also the one who squashed the rumors of Berbatov to United and Riquelme to Everton. The same guy who warned off the exit of Mourinho from Chelsea.
I have nothing big for you right not other than to squash all these 'rumors' that keep appearing on this site.
Here's some stuff that 'will not' happen in January:
Alfonso Alves will not be going anywhere as he just finished patching up things at his club (hence his absense for so long from playing. ) Crouch will not be gong anywhere just yet and neither will Michael Owen. Micah Richards is extending his Manchester City contract, so he will not be going anywhere. Huntelaar may leave but that all depends on results Ajax get between now and January. (If he moves it will likely be in the Summer. ) Do not look for any MAJOR moves to happen in the January window. (There rarely ever is.) Some of the lower divisions or lower tabled teams may move to improve their squads, but teams are using the first few months of the season to get their teams settled. Introducing a lot of new faces puts them back to square one. Summer always better because they have longer to train together before any major game schedules kick in.
So there you have it kids. Pay close attention in January to the minimal movement that goes on. (Minimal in the sense of nothing to get overly excited about. Unless you're a Cardiff fan and are loving life with Fowler and Hasselbaink wearing your colors. )
That is all. Mr. KnowItAll signing off.
Rumour in Bolton is that unless Sammy Lee takes at least 3 points from the next two games – Arsenal away and Villa at home, he will be sacked. Although Paul Jewell is likely to be the favourite (amongst bookies and fans), word is that Aidy Boothroyd will be the target.
