As Burnley have told manager Eddie Howe he will have a budget of around £5m to spend there has been a lot of players linked with the Clarets. One of the players is Jake Livermore from Tottenham, Burnley are hoping to tie up a £1.5m deal with Tottenham for the young midfielder. Burnley have also been linked with big defender Sébastien Puygrenier Who is already on trial with the Clarets. Another main interest is in Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand, Burnley are hoping to tie up a deal with Chelsea for £2m for Ryan Bertrand and young goalkeeper Sam Walker.(11)(23)Dont talk so stupid!!.i have never read so much tripe in all my life!.get a grip laddy no 5m will be spent by us!1. we won't spend 5 million.
2. Bertrand will be a loan at best, livermore would not leave spurs in a million years.
3. puygrenier could be a possible thoughFrom what i've heard he hasn't got a pot to pee in?

French defender Sebastien Puygrenier is hoping to earn a deal with Burnley after joining the Clarets on trial.

The Zenit St Petersburg centre-back will spend this week with the Clarets, two-and-a-half years on from a disappointing loan spell with Bolton.

The 29-year-old former Monaco man joined Zenit for £4.5million in 2008 and, although his contract does not expire until the summer, the player's agent, Michael Manuello, has claimed a release could be arranged for January.

"For him to go to England was very special," Manuello told the Lancashire Telegraph.(9)(6)

Liam trotter of millwall fc has signed a pre contract with fulham fc in a transfer agreed at 3.8m plus add ons(5)(23)


U cant sign a pre contract with a club in the same countryOh dear should not have posted that! Cue Millwall are bigger than fulham posts on here!Millwall are not bigger than fulham but as a Millwall fan Trotter should stay as he still needs to improve before being tested in the premier leagueWe only got just over 2 million for Morison as much as I like Trotter cant see him going for that much, he can also be a bit of an inconsistent player at times.

 


15 Nov 2011 16:56:37
Ryan Bertrand not content with playing Chelsea reserves anymore and looking to secure a loan move to the Championship. The defender looks set to return to Reading with a view to a permanent move.(12)(12)Burnley are also interestedAnd thats all burnley will be..........interested!Oh please let this be trueIan Harte off to Leeds in dramatic return to old club in player/coaching role.

Nicky Barnby to take charge of Hull's game this weekend in the absence of Nigel Pearson.
Barnby to become caretaker with the view of becoming the Perminant gaffer(20)(10)His name's Barmby ffs.All I would say is remember Bryan Gunn at Norwich. Massive fans favourite, whopping win in first game and then down hill. There is no substitute for managerial experience and all the warm fuzzy feelings and fan sentiment won't make any difference. Get someone who knows the game and let them do the job of getting us upSomebody better tell Dougie Freedman he should be no good then.Said BarMby (appologies) would become caretaker manager

Southend United will make a bid for former striker Freddy Eastwood from Coventry should one of their key players leave(7)(22)Southend don't have any key players!Yet top of the league in 14 and a big gap between 4th and 8th.

Barker Grant Hall Dickinson Harris.Oh my god, you're top of the league after a few games into the season, they're all worth millions!Yet as I pointed out look at the gap between the promotion spots.

So they players are of course key.

And have been the best so far this season.

Jim Gannon returns to Stockport County - the messiah returns! He has a list of seven/eight players he wants in the January transfer market, to ensure stability in BSP ex loanees James Wallace, Stephen Husband and Matt Paterson top his list. Welcome back Jimbo, lets get County on the move!(22)(7)Are you serious? If we could get Wallace/Husband/Paterson we would certainly be pushing up the table! Come on County!Gannon's first job will be to cut the wage bill - get some passion into the players that are left and then in January add some quality (like mentioned) to the squad. The only man for the job.

The ScarfWallace and Paterson were the two best loanees last season - would love to see them back at Edgeley.

 


15 Nov 2011 06:52:03
So where is Nigel Person then..all we keep hearing is tomorrow next 48 hours blah blah and that was over a week ago ????? something is not quite right.

They do like getting through their managers don't they?Who would actually want to rush to go to a place like leicester. Most people cant wait to leave!!Seems your manager could not wait tho leave hull all though i have heard that the north is getting increceingly crapYou are going to get mclaren

 


15 Nov 2011 04:22:45

Why is it that the welsh are fine with playing in the english premier league and the lower leagues but when it comes to team GB they have a problem with losing their identity?(47)(5)Im welsh and i personally dont have a problem with it as long as its not bale on his own with the rest of england players, hopefully fair from all nations. and as long as Wales team is at the top of the welsh players minds cause we're moving forward for once {Ed025's Note - no one else would get in!Ed025 what about Ramsey, midfield 3 of Wilshere ramsey and rodwell would be pretty tasty? {Ed025's Note - ok i will give you ramsey...but thats your lot!!Just hope whoever plays takes it all seriously and that the event doesnt become diluted, by club/country situations-Danger otherwise that it will become a bit of a circusThere is also Craig Bellemy!

 


14 Nov 2011 22:35:58
rio will goto spurs harry has been trying to sing him the past year or so(13)(29)Harry said it was Cahill he wanted in summer, Rio's a bit too old and injury prone,
Vertonghen now though looks the most likely CB to replace Bassong in JanI agree rio or plug is far too old and er lets just say injury prone to be on the safe sideHope not, the treatment room at the lane would need to be made bigger with the amount of times Rio would be in for treatmentI think he will sing the Duran Duran classic his name is RIO!!Wow is redknapp a good singer what great news.How do you sing Rio?Yep Rio is going to Spurs with Modric going to OT

Bristol Rovers chairman is keeping a close eye on former Bristol City and Northampton manager Gary Johnson.
The current manager Paul Buckle has been told performances must improve and if the club were to get beat in the next round of the fa cup then he would be out and Johnson in.
Johnson still owns a property in the Bristol area(7)(11)Gary johnson would take them into the conference with pride, it would be his favourite season while also seeing Mcinness keep City up in the championship.

14 Nov 2011 17:46:43
I said years ago Theo Walcott would make England squad when at Southampton and he did now I am saying Adam lallana will do the same for the euro squad(13)(22)Walcott is a one trick pony and the way he plays is like throwing a ball to a dog as all he ca do is run in the space behind the full back. I cant see anyhting he brings to England whereas Llalana is an allround player and more intelligent the way he plays.I thought he might be better.Look who he plays for.....hes pathetic.I doubt very much that Lallana will play for England in the Euros. Maybe 1 or two friendlies but lets face it you dont play for England unless you play for Chelsea, Man U, Man City or Arsenal.

Theo is a waiste of space, he should have been taught to cross by now by "le professuer"I am a Saints fan, really Lallana is good but unproven at the top level, Saints need to try and get to the prem first, then lets see how good Lallana is, dont get me wrong at championship level he is as good as there is but the top 12 in prem are miles apart from ALL the championship teams. However there is proof that allot of former saints youth players have gone on and been good for there countrys Walcott, Bale, Bridge, AOC will i would imagine going back to the likes of Shearer so it is not impossible but very unlikely lets be relisticSaints fan too, and I`m guessing many of the unbelievable`s have not seen him play, if they did they would be saying unbelievable!. A very special player with a great future."I said years ago Theo Walcott would make England squad" I dont believe it! {Ed025's Note - thank you....victor meldrew!Saints fans on here never fail to disappoint do they! Good player yes, euros no chance based on your biased opinion no doubt. Did Maynard or Rodriguez sign you said that was 100 per cent true to lolI am not a saints fan i support a lower league team but i have seen Llanna play several times and he is a quality player. Some of the comments from people on here who dont know anyhting about Llanna are most likely premier league fans who havent got a clue about any club or player outside the premier league.

Hes a better player than Walcott who is totally overrated as i sai before he is a one trick pony throw him a ball and he will run for it. You always get the feeling with Walcott he never knows what to do when he needs to deliver the ball into the box and his final ball 9 times out of 10 is very poor.

 


14 Nov 2011 17:37:48
i agree with arsenal changing their stadium name as it is a NEW stadium in a new location, but not just renaming for more money. maybe man u can rename theirs to webbs dreamland(8)(3)Yes, I can see where you are coming from. And because of it's new location, The Emirates would be the perfect name wouldn't it? Get a grip you fool, it's all about money!Or utd could change it from old trafford to 19 titlesNew location?? Less than a baby's stone throw away from the libraryI think Arsenal should move back to Plumstead and stop mucking about up north.Think Utd should go for the 6 minutes injury time arena, sponsored by the foul as you want, and not get sent off charity...

 


14 Nov 2011 17:21:11
If I were to be an Ipswich fan I would be a very very worried person, With £66 mil in debt, loseing games hand over fist faceing a religation battle very soon the way results are showing, Can't sell a decent amount of tickets for any match, perhaps Southend or Luton could lend you a couple of players, your's are ste. Lg 1 Next season 2 after that(12)(12)Not with Marcus Evans' money....dream on Canary fan.Smells like a bitter budgie. Still dusting the empty trophy cabinet?Good old Norwich fans, when you were in league 1 we actually showed some respect. Your team may be doing ok (for once) but your fans continue to have no class about them. The evans group posted over 100m profit this year! your main benefactor used to be an Ipswich fan! still love that picute of her in her town scarf. humble pie a little?I liked when Norwich were on Football focus a few weeks back they showed the trophie cabinet and I swear it was a pokey cupboard under a staircass with the Milk cup and a Bayern munich banner in only lol. may even post a linkOh dear now theres a little annoyed budgie,wonder why. Cant you just be glad for once your doing better than us and show some form of decorum?

 


14 Nov 2011 13:39:59
Clear noises from a source of mine that Gary Cahill will join machester united for £10 million in January. Good player with potential to slot right in and allow jones to play cm. Ferdinand will remain but jonny Evans after a string of dissapointing games will go out on loan with Wolverhampton wanderers the likely suiters as Evans was in talks with wolves in August.
Believe what you may but United are front runners but won't pay more than £10 million for a player with 6 months contract left!
Agent whisperer!(20)(19)Looks like Man U will be having a tug-of-war with themselves over Cahill......good luck with that one.You little tinker, is that you Arsene?Although your rebuttles are hilarious I am merely posting what info I have.
From a fans point of view Cahill is a good player who has been linked with Chelsea arsenal spurs and even Barcelona! So at 10 million I would say not a bad buy! It's sad that all fans nowadays want a 50 million buy just like Torres to Chelsea! Carroll to Liverpool well they worked a treat! Oh and one last rant..... Hernandez 6 million.... Enough saidWhy would you spend 10 million on a player you could have for free in 6 months?Ha ha 10mil for that donkey.Why would SAF sign another central defender after recently stating that Rio isn't his 1st choice anymore? If Rio cant' get in the team ahead of Smalling, Vidic or Jones, why would Cahill?Heard from a Bolton player that Gary Cahill is heading to London,probably will see his contract out but pre contract agreed with either Arsenal or Spurs.Your made up information is pretty woeful

 


14 Nov 2011 13:25:39
barnsley set to sign c martin on loan from norwich and danny wilson on loan from liverpool(18)(19)

 


14 Nov 2011 12:31:06

14 Nov 2011 12:20:01
Craig Mackail Smith on Southamptons wishlist at end of the season if they maintain their great form and gain promotion(11)(23)Afraid, LCFC and Nigel Pearson, already has his eye on him. you can have Long if you want he seems to be wanting out of WBASomeone else who would have us believe he knows what the manager of LCFC wants, before he's even confirmed as the new manager, jog on dopey.As its believed he will join in 24 hours after agreeing compensation and CMS would be ideal for nugent and schlupp, i would prefer to be called bashfully rather than dopey THANK YOU VERY MUCHCMS does not suit the style of play NA wants at St Marys....he is missing currently missing lots of easy chances at the moment....Ah yes, he would love to move to another LCFC...another championship team...OR...move to a prem team in Saints...jog on idiot.So, Bashful, is Schluup starting under Pearson then? Ahead of Beckford? How do you know this then, where are you getting you super scoops? Are you Nigel Pearson?Think Saints would have bought him at end of last season if that interested but expect purchase of striker in JanSaints aren't lloking for a "proven championship striker". They will go for someone that has Premiership potential or stick with what they have got.Hold your horses 'mate'. Your team aren't in the Premiership...long way to go yet.'mate' he said some one with premiership potential it won't take long for saints' returnYou southampton lot make me laugh and sooner or later your massive ego and sheer arrogance will come round and bite you in the arse really really hard, you will not go up marathon not a sprint. If I was a Southampton fan I would hate sharing my stadium with bigheads every match, it gives all saints fans a bad label. Playoffs and no higher. Hope you stay down it will knock some sense into you.

Van Wolfswinkel to United for £8million(16)(8)I think you will have to add another 10 million to that .Listen son, this is a tough financial climate we're living in we can't go spending money willy nilly, that was a believable offerI guess you are a united supporter
if you think sporting will sell for 8.million think again.Sporting going to tkae a big loss on a player they have had for less than a season? nOpe

 


14 Nov 2011 11:37:08

14 Nov 2011 11:35:02
Arsenal interested in signing Royston Drenthe after his loan at Everton expires(11)(12)He will sign one at everton :)Probably is actually as that is the calibre of player you attract these days!

 


14 Nov 2011 11:31:39
Junior Hoilett to Newcastle for £7 million following his outstanding performances for Blackburn this season(32)(16)Considering he's out of contract in summer, 7m is a tad expensive

Onuoha to bolton for £5million as a replacement for Cahill who's going to Chelsea for £8 million.(22)(14)

 


14 Nov 2011 11:07:34
Kyle Walker to Arsenal for 8 million and Solomon Kalou from Chelsea for 6 million aswell(10)(37)Why would we want to sell Kyle Walker to the Goooners?? Be Serious mate!!Because they will finish higher than your team....so yeah i am being serious MATEYet another delude crack head, you need to worry about keeping your own players! I'm sure van persie will soon gather his senses and jump ship, btw did you see walkers expression after netting the winner against your south london mob? think he'd rather play for barnet before your lot...Would be a step down for walker from a manchester united fanWhen you see an Arsenal fan make comments and statments like this you know their in trouble .... are you still a bit wasted from the weekend fella?Why would Walker want to leave a team with a strong chance of CL football next season to go to one with very little chance of making it? I can't see that one and I can't see Spurs wanting to sell him even less for that kind of money
Sounds like wishful thinkingThe calibre of players you should be moving for are mentioned on another thread above Royston Drenthe anyone? No quality player would even entertain Arsenal right now and with the imminent departure of Van Persie their demise has been set! Did i read that Fabergas has told VP he has to move on , says it all really.... COYSNeither of these players are good enough for Arsenal.Someone is living in the past.... your right they would probably turn you down now.... as they believe they can do far better!Walker is far too good to play for arsenal and even solomon 'not a' kalou would lower his standards & play for those lot.Same prat who said Drenthe going to Arsenal & Gabby Agbonlahor for 8M!

 


14 Nov 2011 10:47:28
Rio Ferdinand will return to West Ham in january on loan as SAF doesnt see him as first choice any longer at Old Trafford(3)(45)Not good enough for first team anymore

with younger hungrier players available {Ed025's Note - i agree with you mate..

 


14 Nov 2011 10:22:44

Vuckic, Ferguson and a couple more youngsters will go out on loan. In the summer we have already lined up Lille FC's Moussa Sow for £12m, providing we get into Europe.(10)(19)Celtic wont pay 3million for Forster. We dont have that sort of money and will return to Sports Direct arena in the summer.WOW, you know so much about your club, this has to be the chief scout, who else would know so much.Why would anyone actually PAY for a troublemaker like Nile Ranger!Nice rumour may be some truth in it but I have to agree that Celtic wont pay 3M for Forster. As far as Ranger goes I will pack his case and drive him to Birmingham good riddance to bad rubbish. Leeds cannot afford Smiths wages (Is there a Greggs in Leeds?)Alan Smith could go to rangersDon't think either rangers or Leeds would or could afford Smithy unless Howson/Snoddy are leaving for premiership? hmmmm

AFC Bournemouths Steve Fletcher has moved aside from being Assistant Coach, but remains a player. This is due to new Russian joint owner stating to the board that Fletch & Bradders is not the management team to run the squad moving forward. Last Wednesday, an hour after Fletch stood down a meeting was held with Alan Curbishly & Stuart Gray. If a deal can be struck a surprise new management team will replace Bradders very soon.

Rumour from a sources in Italy that a Southampton Scout seen at a Pescara Match looking at two twenty year old players. L Insigne a Forward who as scored 26 goals in 56 matches. The other an Under 21 Italian International Defender M Capuano. Sources say both will be taken on loan in January with possible full transfer at the end of the season.(9)(22)Both fit the bill of players Saints might look at but he striker is a Napoli player on loan for a year already. The plan to have 50% of the team coming from the academy makes this rumour unlikely.The plan is to get 50% from youth yes...but thats over time. It wont just make them appear now...so cant rule out moves on that basis...yet :P

Leicester City bid to get Pearson has fallen through.

Compensation cant be agreed, Leicester will now approach Lee Clark once again.(7)(30)Sounds believable but fortunately I know this to be untrueYup also not true will be done within 48 hours just sorting compo for backroom staff nearly complete. Pearson got a new house in Leicester also. Sorry hullCome back on Tuesday, see if Pearson is in by then, cos it's common knowledge that he will be.This is true my dad mr meagi is on the board n has told me that they have told pearson n hull to hull to wax offSurely if he was going to return to hull he would have been there today however i saw him pull out of his car in the king power stadium car parkPearson has done himself, he's on gardening leave atm, so the bloke saying he saw him is lying, and hasn't been at Hull training all week. If the deal falls through they're prepared to let him stay on gardening leave until his contract expires which won't hurt his bank balance, but would basically end his career. If compensation can't be agreed he has to resign, but he won't do that cos that'll be him in court for breach of contract if he does. WhupsAs a pissed off Leicester fan, we deserve EVERYTHING thats happening to us at the moment, an absolute fiasco!!....still be at the next game tho'...and what is happening to "us" at the minute then? 3pts off the playoffs, best squad in the league and we're about to name a manager with a history of bringing out the best in his players, yeah, it's a nightmare isn't it.Its easier to say 3 points off the play offs than mid table is'nt it and you only have the best squad in the league if they perform to the limit of their potential which your squad clearly is'nt at the moment, if you did have the best squad in the league you would be top would'nt you? but you are not you are mid table with a talented but VERY under performing squad so get off your high horse they're are other teams involved in this league you know and half of them are performing way better than you whether you like it or not.Easily the best squad in the Championship, and the fact that Sven has now gone because he couldn't get them motivated, to be replaced by a manager with a proven track record of doing just that, suggests that an upturn is on the cards (unless you bury your head and pretend otherwise obviously) and 3pts off the playoffs is a fact, like it or not. Jog onDesperate shame for Hull as he was building a very promising young squad and it may backfire for Pearson if he cannot get Leicester up straight away.You are just not understanding this 'Best squad in the league' thing are you?

Nigel Pearson will make an agressive attempt to sign Robert Sndgrass this January.

The Scottish international is widely considered to be the best player in the Championship and Pearson will attempt to lure the Scotch marvel with a big money bid.(13)(15)I'm a Leeds fan, and even I don't consider Snodgrass the best player in the Championship. Admittedly, he doesnt start for Scotland enough, but that may be due to his relatively low work-rate. Good luck, but when Norwich tried to sign him, Bates said minimum 8mil for him, which I know is ridiculous, but that is what he said.Lol, Pearson better have another 10 million spare then because that his price tag. Plus he'll also have to find a ridiculous wage price to lure Snodgrass to downgrade his club. Just like you had to do with BeckfordTypical Leicester rubbish. You haven't learnt your lesson & your STILL talking about spending although I bet the chairman's not as keen unless you sell some of the players you bought.
I'm a Leeds fan & if you want to pay the going rate for him & he wants to join your band or MERCENARIES that's fine. We'll use the money to buy Keogh,McCarthy & another suitable TEAM PLAYER for Leeds because we have a TEAM. Oh & by the way Snodders is a very good player but he can't be the best player in the championship because he's not even the best player in our team, Adam Clayton is. So if you're going to persist with this rubbish rumour that's cool. Give it a day or 2 then you can start talking about buying Clayton too as long as you've got 20m+ for both.Leeds are going nowhere, fast.When you say aggressive will he personally raid Elland Road & take him away in a bag?Wherever they're going, they're getting there quicker than Leicester!You gotta love the dickhead Leeds fans... they're all a bit too simple to realise that it's a wind-up, Pearson isn't the Leicester manager so how could anyone claim to know who he's looking to sign in January?

Bravo to the muppet who thinks he runs Leeds btw, he talks as if they're his players and it's his money - Earth to numpty, you do realise it's the clubs who do the buying and selling don't you? Dumbass fans telling other fans how much they have to pay, and then going on to name replacement players, is laughable. Have a good day at School children, try to be good, and try not to get any crayons shoved up your nose.I love how the not-so-bright among us throw the term "mercenaries" around like they know what they're talking about.

Tell me little Leeds fan, are every one of your wonderful players Leeds born and bred? Did they all come up via the youth team and will they remain Leeds Utd players for their entire career?

If the answer to any of the above is "no" then surely that means that they too are nothing more than "mercenaries"? IE they play for whoever pays them the most money, sure they love the club while they're there, and they often pay lip service to thier old fans when they leave, but that's all it is. True players stick with the same club regardless, Giggs at Utd, LeTissier at Southampton are two that spring to mind, the rest, all of them, simply go where the money is.

Here endeth the lesson, now shush you clown.Lol, at the sad people who have been indoctrinated into believing they are psychologists. If you have nothing better to do than mask your own flaws by sitting writing tedious foul comments about others, then you yourselves are nothing short than a set of imbeciles.
Lets gather the facts shall we before one receives any foul drivel from such incoherent hooligans. No.1 - Mr Kenneth Bates allegedly said in a sky sports interview that Robert Snodgrass shall only be sold if a fee of 8-10 million pounds is produced and that such a fee shall increase if insultingly low bids are offered to him (example Norwich's 3.5 million). The 2nd point to be brought in to account is that no one has mentioned any replacement for R.Snodgrass they have simply given an example of Leicester paying excessive money for a player to drop down to their club, however i can see how easy it must be for the ill-educated and angered Leicester dole queue dwellers to misinterpret such a statement. Thirdly we already knew N.Pearson was to be named manager on Monday, therefore it could be acceptable for one to presume that he has already got targets in mind for rebuilding the team.
I suppose your going to besmirch my name in the usual derisory, childish and slanderous way in which imbeciles are so passionate about doing. To be honest one doesn't really care, as one has far more intellectual matters to worry about than the inflated opinions of a set of amoebas whom sit and debate mundane trivia whilst thinking of what to spend their dole money on.
M.O.T - Leeds, Leeds, LeedsThat last post is the reason i love this site! Someone trying (failing) to look clever bemoans people who write tedious posts and then does exactly the same thing himself. He then goes on to moan about people who insult others - before doing exactly the same thing himself, pure genius!

FYI Mr. Clever Clogs...

Doctrine is a teaching, are you suggesting people are taught to insult Leeds Utd?

Psychology is the study of behaviour, i don't see anyone studying anyone, i simply see people responding (in kind) as is the accepted practise on here.

I'm not besmirching your name or anything else, because i don't know your name. I am calling you a pillock though.

New Leicester manager Nigel Pearson is set to spend the money in January as he looks to bring in five new players to The King Power Stadium.
-Pearson is keen on bringing in a striker to partner David Nugent and apparently this could be Ched Evans. Evans is currently scoring goals for fun in League 1 for Sheffield United but will cost City around £2.5 million.
-Pearson is wanting another attacker to compete and will sign Morten Gamst Pedersen from Blsckburn. The Norway international has told manager Steve Kean that he wants to leave Ewood Park after declaring himself unhappy with the low morale within the support at the club.
-Pearson is also courting Mario Mandzukic from German side Wolfsburg.(15)(21)Ched Evans, Goals for fun, lol really? He's scored 17 goals in nearly 80 appearances.Sounds like he's making a lot of plans about who he's going to sign when he hasn't even signed himself yet!There's ambition, and then there's Pedersen and Mandzukic. Thats going too far. These are players that would get in most Premier League squads, and I'm sure they wouldnt be satisfied to play in the second tier of any league.
wallyUnless this bloke is Pearson, he's making it up. Considering Pearson hasn't even taken over yet it's a bit of a stretch to pretend you know who he's going to sign.He,s not the manager yet ,he,s still manager of HULL CITYPearson courting ? thougth he was already marriedI think you lot are going downWow what great insight, you should be on match of the day with such a well balanced arguement.Steve howard will be the main striker lets face it pearson only knows 1 game and thats hump it from the back. i hope the pearson deal falls through.

Barnsley boss Keith Hill is currently in talks with five players:
-Manchester United youngster Paul Pogba could join as soon as Wednesday after Hill conceded he needed to bring in another midfielder. The French youth international is keen on getting out on loan to get first team football and his loan could be extended in January.
-Young Celtic striker James Keatings will join on loan in January until the end of the season.
-Leeds attacker Ramon Nunez is wanting a move away from Elland Road after not getting much first team football. The Honduras international is keen on amove to Barnsley in January until the end of the season, where the Oakwell club could sign Nunez in the summer for an undisclosed fee.
-Hill has this week held talks with David Healy of Rangers about a deal in January but nothing has yet been confirmed about any deal.
-Another striker on Hill's radar is Brechin striker Charlie King after a successful trial spell with the club over the last week and a half.(11)(12)Barnsley have no money hence recruitment always from lower league so get real!Ramon Nunez signed a new contract in summer and is happy at the club maybe a loan deal but not a full transferNunez signed a 3 1/2 year deal with a choice of an extra one at the end, every interview he has had has him saying how much he loves leeds.

Norwich City rumours:
-Nathan Delfouneso could join on loan from Aston Villa with a permanent deal set for the summer, if City stay up. Delfouneso is currently unhappy with not being picked constantly at Villa Park to lead the attack.
-Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is subject of a loan bid but is not expected to sign in the summer as City can't stump up the £15 million asking price.
-QPR striker Jamie Mackie is interesting Lambert and the Scot himself could make a bid worth £4 million to take the former Plymouth hotshot.
-Lambert is keen on signing a midfielder and will make an approach for Sheffield United defensive midfielder Lee Williamson. City are looking to bring in a 'hard man' to sit in front of the back four, for when they play away from home against the 'bigger' sides.
-Finally, Lambert has revelead he needs cover for the centre back positions and has already held talks with experienced defender Andres Scotti from Chilean side Colo-Colo. Scotti is only expected to cost around £1 million as he's now 35 years old.(3)(14)Delfouneso isn't leaving Villa my friend & he can't shoot , He only has speed. He's no Gabby Agbonlahor!.Nobody wants to go to Carrot Road.I would love defouneso to leave the villa, just dont cut it

Secondly, Tottenham's young midfielder Tom Carroll is also on the radar and could sign until the end of the season on loan.(2)(10)Tom is playing most uefa cup games, and will play in the f.a cup, so I doubt it, but I may be wrong??You aint got any moneyWhy would we go for a youngster that comes from tottenham? their youth system is abysmal!

Beattie could easily walk into Championship clubs and do well. Plus, Dundee United have offered him a deal.

Nigel Pearson will be appointed as Leicester manager tomorrow lunch time. Pearson has just agreed terms in the last few hours for his staff and they will all sign a two and a half year deal. Pearson is expected to make Will Griig is first signing from Walsall. The 20 year old striker is wanted by a number of Championship clubs but City will sign the Northern Ireland under 21 international for £500,000. Pearson will also go back to his former club to make defender Paul McShane his second signing. The Republic of Ireland defender is expected to cost Leicester around £300,000 and will sign a two year contract.(5)(12)Amazing that Pearson is signing this player & that player before he has had time to assess his current squad ... and it isn't January so is this supposed to happen during the November or the December transfer window? ... sounds like he's been busy especially when you consider that he hasn't signed himself yet! ... Apart from these points, this is an excellent rumour, well researched (hmmm) and thought through. Doh!Be surprised if he buys a player that he hasnt sought fit to play at Hull and that he shunted out on loan last season. I'd be more worried if he came back for the likes of Chester, Rosenior, Dudgeon, Fryatt

Rio Ferdinand has been told by Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson that he will be made available for transfer in January. Rio is wanting to stay at Old Trafford but Ferguson sees Chris Smalling, Nemanja Vidic and Phil Jones before the England player in the pecking order. Manchester City and Everton are both tracking the situation. {Ed025's Note - you done it again!!!...i can see everton going in for him....but city??..(23)(21)To be fair though ed City did sign Owen Hargreaves - they just want big names, as the wage budget is unlimited. {Ed001's Note - not true at all, that is not why City signed Hargreaves. They signed him because they believed they could fix his injury problems and a fit Hargreaves is one of the best in the world in his position. They want the best players, not the biggest names, it is a long time since Rio was one of the best players.}Rio is a quality player and im a liverpool supporter. he's had to many injuries de last 2 years to find any real form so, just like hargreaves where ever he will go he'll always be considered as a top player once fit there is still not much better cb in the world then himRio as been one of the most overated players of all time anyone could of fitted in

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has told Daniel Levy he would like to sign Marouane Fellaini from Everton. Fellaini has signed a new deal at Goodison Park but with the the financial restrictions in Merseyside giving David Moyes no spending power, they could let the attacking midfielder go for around £18 million.(11)(24)Everton may have a takeover & Levy will not spend 18m18 mill your having a laffWith the players Spurs have in midfield they have no need for Fellaini. Spurs are looking for a striker and a centre back, possibly a winger, they certainly won't be spending that kind of money on FellainiIs this so everton can afford butterfield from barnsleyI bet Redknapp has also told Levy that he'd like a payment in to his Monaco bank account too.18 million utter bcksI doubt 'Arry will be given any money to spend until they know if he's off to prison or not.

I wonder if he'll get Ken Dodd's old cell, and will there be a tickle stick in it?First things first - He is a defensive midfielder and probably the best young one in the Prem.
We bought him for 15m so go away and come back with a realistic bid.
Prob about 25m minimum.Sandro and parker are both better so this is a non starter, ffs who writes this rubbish!?

Nigel pearson will return to leicester some time in the next few days. he will cancel waghorns loan to hull (which is a mistake) and then bring fryatt and hobbs back in january(9)(21)Waghorn doesn't need it cancelling he is injured and back at leicester and has been for a while... fryatt not returning not good enough hobbs hopefully and hope he will bring Aaron Mclean, but get rid of abe,king and howard.Abe is good and king was Leicesters top goal scorer last season why would you want to get rid of themCos he's a pillock. I doubt Pearson would bring either Hobbs or Fryatt back. The latter is crap, the former wouldn't get in the side ahead of Mills, Bamba and the now returned Tunchev.I am not a pillock, thank you very much.. i have watch numerous games this season and abe and king are not good enough both lack speed,strength and ability both seem exhausted don;t need tired players in a squad need fresh vibrant quality, personally don't rate eitherFresh vibrant quality? that rules fryatt and hobbs out thenNo way is King as crap as you make out.If Sven had bothered to play him where he causes most damage then he might still have a job

Im a Southampton and can you all please stop going on about the fact were top of the league because your making every other saints fan look like a total person i mean were just over a quarter of the way through the season so please be more realistic ! because when we have a bad patch which will happen your gonna look even more of an person !(5)(16)2 or 3 bigheaded loudmouths on here are making you all look like toolsJust stating facts...enjoy it while we can is what i say......it is called banter you numpty

We are top of the LeagueWe're just over a third of the way through the season mate. We're 5 points clear and have a good looking run of fixtures 'til the new year. January and Febuary is where we will have our blip(if it's coming)If we can't enjoy ourselves when we are winning, when can we? Stop being so negative!The idiots that say stupid things on here are just rival fans pretending to be saints fans trying to get a reaction, all the idiots that react more fool you. I am a true saints fan, a season ticket holder and we are enjoying it game by game, yes we are top of the leauge FACT and yes we are 5 points clear FACT, if we do go on a bad run then so be it, ST happens. It is amazing tho when you are top of a league how many jelous fans there are and not just rival fans, it is a nice change for us Saints fans, so we are just enjoying it for as long as it last and to be honest all the games we have played so far there is no real evidence that our run cant continue, yes i do include the games we have lost at Cardiff and Leicester neither of you outplayed us i was at both games, in fact Leicester were very lucky we battered you second half, Kasper being your best player tell you all you need to know. COYRMost of the 'top of the league' stuff has been in resonse to some person saying we are 'st'. Which is more realistic? Yes, there is a long way to go but grounded positivity is the mantra of 'the one in whom we trust'.I particually enjoyed the lecture from the arrogant Saint, especially the bit when he called the idiots who react 'fools'... Do you think we should tell him that he's just reacted too or keep it as a surprise?How is hooiveld been for yous? I'm a Celtic fan and he was rotten when he played a few games for us, slow, and scared to header the ball, just wondering if its our coaching cause all our defenders seem to be rotten

RaffRaff, Hooiveld has been awesome thanks. the odd blip but he's been a rock at CB. Can we keep him please?Not an arrogant Saint, also did not react mate i could not care less what people think of my team, end of the day it all boils down to jelousy.Haha it looks like yous probably will keep him, don't think lenny gave him much of a chance tbh

RaffOops, he reacted again, what an idiot! Of course he'll say he didn't (well he would, wouldn't he) but he's a silly billy and he knows it.Lol what a yes i am a silly billy, i silly billy whos team is top of the league, just out of interest who is your teamLet's put it in perspective... you are the current leaders of the second division. Nice, but unimportant.Maybe unimportant for you but very important for the team that finishes there, promotion to the prem is what every team in the championship strives for, seems pretty important to me you muppet.Nevermind who is an idiot, fool, muppet or whatever, lets pin Raff down for a long term deal for Hooiveld before lenny has 2nd thoughts!"A silly billy who's team is top of the league" - wow! what a badge of honour, you should have Mummy fashion you a nice badge that you can wear to school. As the last fella said, you're top of the second division, you've not won the second division and are bragging like you have. Not exactly a massive accolade is it?

My team is irrelevant, if they're a Prem team you'll say i'm lying, or a glory hunter. If they're a Championship team you'll tell me how much better Southampton are and if they're Div 1 you'll say they're rubbish, so what's the point. You kids need to grow up a bit, adopt a little bit of humility and people might not spend their time annoying you then, the reason they do is because you all tend to chuck a massive sulk as soon as someone dares question mighty Southampton's credentials, it's the same with Leicester fans, and it's funny!We are not ashamed of our success!
Long may it continue so we can keep getting in your faces.End of the day at the moment we are 5 point clear at the top of the Championship, we know we have not won anything yet, if you ask any relistic saints fan than they will tell you we would of been more then happy with a mid table finish this season after being promoted from league 1, so the fact we have started so well is why we are so happy. It is true, when you are at the top of the league, no matter what league how unimportant that league is, all people want to do is knock you down. As for people questioning our credentials, i have no problem with that its just people seem to talk ST people saying we have been lucky, not played any of the big teams, unless you watch us week in week out you dont know how we play. However the one game we played on sky against reading yes i agree we were lucky to get a point. As for not playing the big teams, aint all the teams in the championship decent teams." i could not care less what people think of my team"

Why bother replying then? Who are you trying to convince, us, or you? Face it mate, it's November, nobody gives a toss who's top of the league in November because it doesn't mean a thing. Yes you've started really well - and? Starting well doesn't mean you'll even make the playoffs just as starting badly doesn't mean you'll miss them, ask Forest, they couldn't buy a win during the first 8/10 weeks of last season and then it clicked and they got as high as 3rd. Bragging now is short sighted. There are many more southampton fans who are loving the fact that their on top but they don't have to keep bragging about it do they?

Liverpool will make a move for Gary Cahill this January and if they make the CL then the owners are willing to splash around £100m to get the squad challenging the big European giants. Cole,Aquilani,Skrtel,Kuyt,Rodriguez and maybe even the recently signed Bellamy could leave next summer in order to make way for new recruits. Eden Hazard,Hulk and the re-signing of Fernando Torres are the targets however unlikely. Luiz Gustavo of Bayern could also be in line for a move. 4-2-3-1 Reina{GK}-Kelly{RB}-Cahill{CB}-Agger{CB}-Enrique{LB}-Gerrard{RCM}-Gustavo{LDM}-Hulk{RW}-Suarez{CF}-Hazard{LW}-Torres{ST}. Carroll and Henderson need time to develop and will be great for certain games while we also have the likes of Lucas-Carragher-Downing-Johnson-Adam as back up sounds like something straight out of football manager but it is the plan(10)(50)Donkey Cahill, for a donkey team...well suited.This idiots mind ain't completely furnished at allMate this site isn't for your football manager team.How would this fit in with the new financial rules?

Football manager isn't realAnd you'll just about beat Norwich with your "100 Million Pound team"What a dreamer, get a gripWhy is it always the same clubs that attract the same deluded people? So Hazard is off to Liverpool he wants 6th pace in the premiership over Real? Hulk's buy out clause is 100 euro! How on earth would Liverpool afford that when even City might struggle?
About the only possible truth in this deluded post may be Cahill - and wow how good is he right now with Bolton? {Ed001's Note - the buyout clause is an irrelevance, he will not cost that. Though I do agree with your points, none of those 3 are likely at all.}

 


10 Nov 2011 20:52:23
Dirk Kuyt is edging towards the exit door with Inter Milan readying a £8.5m bid for the striker/winger. Liverpool are planning what could be one of the biggest shocks to football in years with a stunning £30m bid to re-sign Fernando Torres but will Chelsea accept £30m just a year after paying £50m it is debatable , Torres has spoken of his unhappiness with life not just in Chelsea but in London he has had a torrid time since moving to Stamford Bridge. Comolli and Daglish want him back but would the supporters accept him and what if his current bad luck in front of goal contiues surely the Anfield faithful would eat him alive but a Suarez-Torres partnership does have a ring to it.(15)(15)If he wants to come back he can pay the transfer fee himself. don''t want him standing and moaning on our pitch. would rather keep kuyt or try a cheeky bid for sturridge. at least they would put a shift in for the team.

Southend to sign Timlin on a free transfer in Jan.

Hall and Ferdinand to sign extened contracts this coming month.(6)(13)As A mad shrimper I would dearly love this post to be true. but to be very honest I can't see Hall nor Kane signing anymore extentions as they'll want an easy escape route when bigger sides come calling. If they re-sign they'll likely to have to committ to another two seasons. A season and a half top whack. I don't doubt however That the Club wish to sign Timlin full-time. But I fear at least one key star will have to make way for this to happen as we are bang on the wage cap at the moment. I appreciate this won't go down to well with the Blues die-hards but I don't think this post is totally as plain sailing as appears to have been written. Either way Up the Shrimpers.Swindon dont want to loan Southend Timlin for the remainder of the season, he has been one of your best players creating a lot of goals, but Swindon dont want him to stay for the rest of the season as it will weaken Southend, he is going to be loaned elsewhere as PDC doesn't want him back...The deal is almost done.

He only wants to go back to Southend and and Swindon does not want him on their wage bill.

Also Swindon arent fighting Southend, Southend are a top 3 team and your a playoff - At the moment, I know this can change.Watch STFC rise up the league we have strength in depth and we are now going to kick on. we have had alot of new players this season and they have taken time to gel. we are by far the best footballing side in this league and play the right way on the floor unlike most teams who play the long ball game.

Cant see Southend maintaing their current run.11 WINS in the last 12 in all competions.
Unbeaten in 12.

Current run does not seem to be stopping anytime soon.

Swindon are a playoff team at best. Southend have had a extra year at this level to adjust and gel.

After the fiasco surrounding PSG and Peguy Luyindula, many
clubs are interested in getting his signature in January. The
Forward's contract runs out at the end of this season, with
Norwich, Leicester, Millwall and Ipswich all seemingly looking to table a bid.

Luyindula should be available for around £500,000 although Leicester are lining up a £1,000,000 bid to steady their currently stuttering front line.

It seems though that Norwich are in the lead to sign the former French international however, with the player himself allegedly saying if he moves to England he will only join a 'club that is heading in the right direction.'

Also Ipswich are lining up a bid for Antoine Sibierski, on a bosman transfer. Antoine Sibierski had a successful loan period at rivals Norwich. Leicester are also said to be interested in the forward who has a prolific strike rate in England.(1)(11)1. Norwich don't buy foreign players, let alone an old has been who has a load of injury problems
2. Antoine Sibierski retired in 2008

Please please can we put these Sturrock stories to one side for the forseeable future.

Everything on here about him has been proven to be ludicrous in the extreme.

First Torquay then Plymouth,Then St Johnstone, Then Hibernian and now theres laughable desperate talk spilling from the mouths of Stockport fans.

Each and evry one of these rumours which have provided hundreds of posts are totally unfounded. Something Southend fans have been telling you all on here all along.

Luggy himself has on occasions been good enough to post on Southend's main forum to let fans be in the know that he's simply not going anywhere. In fact he regards all this nonsensical talk with increasing hilarity.

Torquay appointed Ling, Plymouth appointed Fletcher and Ridsdale as Director of football, St Johnstone appoint ed Lomas.

And I can assure you when Hibs come round to appointing their new manager it will not be Sturrock.

Sturrock will not leave Southend in the near future.

Again to those who appear to have complex issues with Blues, Sturrock will not leave Southend in the near future.

Any future talk on here about him is and will be hideously way off the mark.

Please put this to bed. It is boring to say the least.

And believe it or not I'm not a Southend fan. But have friends who are and one works in a senior position at the Club.

Now pester another individual and link him to numerous jobs.(4)(8)Mate thank you so much.

Everything I have been saying on here and more.

Well done.Poor little Shrimpers panicing that their beloved leader might jump ship. Money talks, he'll be off as soon as a good offer is on the table.Well as probably most have you have read that this week mr ken bates has slated leeds for not being higher in the league than they are, i have on good authority that grayson's job is not as safe as ppl would think. their is a rumour that grayson has 4 weeks to stable the ship and improve the clubs playing/results, rumours are about that leeds will move for someone of the likes of sturrock should this happen. not say it will be sturrock but someone of his experience.

not a leeds fan i just live in the area and have a friend who works inside elland road.I'm the original poster of this piece. I don't doubt Grayson is under pressure and that Bates is a hard man to please. But yet again Sturrock will not be in the frame. What is with Luggy? Seems a lot of gay men on here. {Ed025's Note - can you explain your last remark?...this site will not tolerate sexism, or racism. or any other form of prejudice..!!Ed - Yes you should edit it. I 'm in the wrong and I sincerely apologise. It was actually a flippant remark which I guess the context will be hard for people on here to acknowledge when its only in writing. So I'm very sorry for thsat. One question? If its in bad taste why did you allow it to be published in the first place? {Ed025's Note - as a warning to other posters, who think it is alright to be bigoted!...or flippant..As i said about leeds i dint say it would be sturrock but someone of his experience! if you look at the last 6-7 leeds managers mosy have little or no experience exceptions being el tel and peter reid!
i'm not trying to rattle you or say sturrock is goin im just passing on the rumour i heard, leeds will be looking for an experienced manager!

Charlie Austin will be the subject of a bid from West ham in January, his form has attracted their attention....(9)(11)Sold! sold! sold! sold! sold! sold! sold!
fire sale againnnnn at turf moor!!!I'm a Swindon Fan dont take the mick , but, believe me this boy will play for England one day and will be another Milner.......but better....his movement off the ball, anticipation, and awareness of finding space is remarkable.......he'll play at the highest level in the next 3 years or so........

All top clubs......if you can sign him......do!!I am also a Swindon fan and Austin is pure class, his workrate and movement are excellent, we were surprised when he went to Burnley, I personally thought he was headed to the saints, nothing against Burnley but Southampton looked a better career move as they were the best team by a mile that I saw in league 1 last year. I dont understand why more clubs wouldn't pay the money for him, 1.5million for Burnley was a steal...Im also a dingle and austin is dog poooo!

Arsenal, Totenham & West Ham are considering making a bid for Charlton's Jordan Cousins who continues to impress at every level he plays at. The thinking is that he will soon break through into the first team and his value will rise accordingly.

Cousins's call up into England under 18 is another mark of his progress but, Charlton will not want to let him go as early as Carl Jenkinson, who made only a handful of appearances. Having invested the money from the Jenkinson deal into the first team Charlton are in a good position to progress up the leagues, this and better first team opportunities may enable thee to reap better rewards from the youngsters they are still developing.

Bigger clubs better placed financially are eyeing a bargain however, thoughts in the game are unified in thinking the lad has a big future in the game.(5)(16)

 


10 Nov 2011 13:00:10
Lord Snape the Stockport County Chairman has droped his biggest hint yet at who he wishes to come into County following the dismissal of Didi Hamman. Number one target is Paul Sturrock at Southend Utd, Lord Snape would like Sturrock to join County and lead us back to the Football League.(10)(11)This is sheer rubbish. why would sturrock drop into the conference when in all probability he'll be a manager in League 1 next season.? In addition he has personally posted on Southends main forum that he's not leaving to go to anywhere. Whoever posted this could you please explain where you got this utter nonsense from?Afraid this Sturrock to Stockport rumour carries absolutely no legs whatsoever. It wouldn't make any sense at all.Yeah, but if Stockport are looking for a manager with a pedigree of working with zero budget and achieving success then maybe Sturrock is the man?But he's already succeeding in doing that at Roots Hall. Why walk away from that and risk not gettimg anywhere at Edgeley Park? As I pointed out previously 1| Why would he drop into the conference and start a rebuilding job when he's well under way at Blues? It'll be a major backward step. 2|There is of course the possibility what he's begun and aiming to finish at Blues may be his last opportunity of achieving something with his health not in the best of states. he may not have the time to start from scratch all over again. 3| Stocxkport wouldn't have the money to tempt him and 4| He posted on shrimperzone personally to tell Blues supporters that he's not going anywhere. I repeat again this stockport stuff is garbage. At the moment you are not good enough for him.I am under the impression that Hibernian are desperate to get him. Forget the 'I want to stay' talk from any manager, if the money's right, they'll walk!Yeah but it's a long walk to HibernianLuggy's post on a shrimpers forum was to tell us specificaly that he is not going to Hibs. And doesn't expect any approach. Back to Stockport- You wouldn't have the cash to lure him nor the additional monies towards the small matter of compensation. As reported its a backward step the biggest of scales. Not going to happen. You'll need to look for conference level bosses or those that have failed in the FL. THAT is the reality of it all.Dont believe everything Luggy tells you, he was quick enough to walk away from Swindon when Plymouth came in for him, that was after getting Town promoted and saying he was loving it at the club.....

 


10 Nov 2011 12:40:49
Luciano Becchio and Jonathan Howson to join West Ham.(11)(24)Dont talk crap and get your homework doneAnd when becchio joins west ham he could also join a drama school it might improve his rolling around on the floorWhy leave to join a smaller clubLol I told you to stop licking them mushroomsSmaller club? west ham have always been a better bigger club than leeds ever will beHmm me thinks the west ham fan does not know his history, records and stats say that leeds are by fare a bigger/ more succesful team, over recent years yes you have an upper hand but this year your on an equal footing, so before you spout off about "WEST HAM HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A BETTER BIGGER CLUB THEN LEEDS EVER WILL BE" i think you should check your facts.

bye the way im a liverpool fan before you spout of some more guff!

 


10 Nov 2011 11:23:12
Big twist in the tale down on the south coast.Everyone is expecting Michael Appleton to be named as the new Pompey boss. There is a press conference at Fratton Park this afternoon and I can exclusively reveal that it is NOT Michael Appleton but Darren Ferguson who will be named as the new Pompey Manager. Not long before this will be gliding along your screens on the yellow info bar on Sky Sports. Just watch(6)(30)HA....is that why there are pictures on the local news website of Appleton greeting the players in his new PFC training gear!! Idiot!!Well done fella, are you the next Sally Morgan?And within the hour Appleton is named as the new manager rock solid that rumour.Unlucky , currently gliding on the Sky yellow info. bar is that Appleton has signed a three and a half year contract with PompeyGot that wrong didnt we!For one it is Michael Appleton and Darren Ferguson doesn't want to leave Peterborough because he is doing well with Posh in the championship plus he still has 3 years left on his contract at Posh as he only signed a 4 year deal in January this yearThat and the fact he's carp, and should be at a club like peterborough! Not an ambitious club like Portsmouth.We watched and now you look like a fanny!! Ha ha

Bristol City and Portsmouth are keeping tabs on Swindon Town's Matt Ritchie, in case he decides to quit The County Ground in January.

If he does go, Swindon already have a replacement in Etienne Esajas.

Swindon also interested in Wales U21 star Stefan Jones.(12)(7)That's Steffan Jones, and I think he's now at a Welsh Premier League club despite being more than good enough for League 2.

Paolo only buys foreigners anyway - then again does Wales count as a foreign country?Swindon will not sell Ritchie unless a silly bid is received, they will lose more money by selling him and not gaining promotion than his transfer fee. Although Esejas has enough quality as a replacement

 


10 Nov 2011 00:23:42
Paul Sturrock is expected to carry on in his role at Roots Hall.

However, although he has a good relationship with the CEO his relationship with the Chairman is partly fractous.

It is understood Sturrock accepts at least one key player will be sold on in January. But if the Club decide to sell more then expect Sturrock to consider his own position.

I'm led to believe minor contingency plans have been put in place just in-case the worst comes to the worst.

Dean Austin is a serious contender for the Manager's job should it become UNEXPECTEDLY vacant. He is the favoured stand-bye.

The Board were impressed with what Austin had to offer during his brief stay at Southend and they believe he didn't get the credit he deserved when he advised the then manager Steve Tilson on who to sign.

Up the Blues(3)(5)No key players will be sold dont worry.
