I completly agree with the everton fan,liverpool fans are most dissulusioned fans known to the world they think they will win the title every year when they have a half decent start.Face it chelsea are the best team in the league i am a newcastle fan and i know that.and to all the fans out there who do not believe newcastle to be a big club have a good look at yourself you clearly have no clue.no disrepect to tottenham but we are the 5th biggest club in the premier league but not the 5th best.these are two different things.now all this suspicion of american owners is false listen to me the new owner will be anil ambani and his brother mukesh ambani the current 6th and 5th richest men in the world.anil will take most 60 percent control of the club and mukesh will take the rest.
Sunderland are closing in on a shock capture of Ghanain midfielder Stephen Appiah. Sunderland look set to beat of competition from several Premier League clubs, including West Ham and Portsmouth.
Bellamy was at parkhead a few days ago, i saw him with my own eyes, and my cousin got his autography, asked him what he was doing here is he coming back he said "early days mate, but things look good."
There will not be a mass clearout of players in January from West Ham,but Parker,Neill,Boa Morte and Cole will be leaving. Zola is hoping to sign Ben Watson from Crystal Palace,Michael Kightly from Wolves and Joe Ledley from Cardiff.

Ok first of all, the Arsenal fan insistant that liverpool don't have a strong enough squad and the guy who commented on liverpool fans say in november it will be ours next year, Its November and have either of you seen the league table? Im not saying Liverpool will win it but they have a much better chance than Arsenal and Everton. . .Sour Grapes!
Liverpool will be taken over by the end of January with Gillett and Hicks unable to refinance! this will mean not too much happening as far as transfers in the January window. Maybe just 1 new addition at leftback! Lots of options and Rafa is still undecided!
Rangers to sign Hamilton Accies defender Brian Easton in January.
LIVERPOOL HAVE A VERY LARGE SHOPPING LIST FOR THE WINTER BUT NOT ALL THEIR TARGETS WILL BE BIDDED FOR AS THEY DONT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY AS THE STUPID OWNERS CANNOT COME UP WITH THE MONEY TO FUND THE REST OF THE DEALS.
RAUL ALBIOL 8M
ALSO IF LIVERPOOL HAVE NEW OWNERS BY THE SUMMER, THEY WILL ALSO BID:
kun AGUERO 30M
RAKITIC 25M(UNLESS BOUGHT BY JUVENTUS IN JANUARY)
With regards to Arsenal's most expensive player being Reyes, he only cost £7.1million upfront, with £3.55million being paid the next and a total of £6.79 million being paid for the rest of his 4 year contract. As he was loaned out after 2, with Madrid picking up the tab. . Wiltord is still the most expensive player bought by Arsenal. Oh, and can LFC fans please be realistic – your squad is not good enough to win the premiership
To the person who said Reyes £19m do your research, well sunshine do yours i think you'll find he cost £11.8m and the rest of the fee was to be made up from success and apperances and due to length of time he spent at Arsenal and the games he played the fee never rose any higher hence Wiltord is still Arsenal's record transfer.
Now for a wish list i have no inside info i know nobody who knows this person who knows that person
I think Arsenal need 2 CB Mertezacker (spelling ??) could be and relatively cheap option and Steven Taylor or David Wheater or Michael Dawson could be good as they have that British style of rough and ready about them. Maybe a holding CM could be good i.e Yaya Toure or Miguel Veloso but be cautious because getting 1 could hinder the progress of Diaby, Denilson and Ramsey up front very strong anyway but prehaps we could swap Adebayor for Huntelaar as the striking options are very versitile in where they can play i.e Van Persie can play wide on either side same for Eduardo and Vela where Adebayor is a bit 1 dimensional in his game
Arsenal to sign Cristian Zapata, and maybe stephen appiah. Also don't rule out a move for torsten frings.
With Anelka in top form this season for Chelsea, expect Drogba to be moved on in the summer. This will be to one of Real Madrid, AC Milan or Inter for around 20 mil. Chelsea will look to sign another striker to partner Anleka and possibly switch to 4–4–2 from their favourite 4–5–1. Possibly Andrei Arshavin who has recently re–stated his desire to move to the premier league and Tottenham will now show less interest as Bent and Pavlyuchenko are starting to perform under Redknapp. Yet another dissapointing defeat for the gunners against Villa will mean that Wenger will ensure that Yaya Toure is signed in January to add experience and more physicality into the young Arsenal squad. Liverpool will sign Rafinha and Gareth Bale in January for a total of 25 mil (Bale 15 mil, Rafinha 10 mil)
The Arsenal Know It All
Liverpool will sign Jermaine Defoe from Portsmouth for 11 million in january so that Liverpool can bolster their English aspects, and so they can have another quality striker to partner Torres and Keane. They will also bid for Kuba and will sign in for 8 million.Outs will be Jermaine Pennant for 5.5 million to bolton.Also departing will be xabi alonso for 14 million to valencia.
After not being able to buy Liverpool, Sheik Al– Maktoum has turned his attention to Arsenal. With the club in such poor state, the board will sell for around 800m to 1.2b. Once the takover is complete Arsene Wenger will be sacked. Marco Van Basten will be appointed to take over.
Signings made be Van Basten:
6)Armand Traore(loan return)
Players to be sold:
1) Cesc Fabregas(35mil)
2) Emmanuel Adebayor(22mil)
4) Geal Clichy(12mil)
5) William Gallas(16mil)
6) Nicklas Bendtner(6mil)
7) Abou Diaby(9mil)
And a whole lost of fringe players.
The team will be built around Aaron Ramsey,Theo Walcott,Jack Wilshire,Carlos Vela
Roy Keane will step up his pursuit of defender Joleon Lescott (Everton) as he is becoming increasingly worried with the lack of depth to his defense.
Landon Donovan of LA Galaxy is currently on trial at Bayern Munich and Klinsman reportedly likes what he sees. Expect the transfer to go through in January and to break MLS' transfer record.
Tevez to be re–joined with his best mate javier mascherano at anfield.
Footballs No.1 Fan is living in a dream world, very rarely do you ever hear Everton or Aston Villa fans over–rate their clubs or players, granted some Newcastle fans have some high hopes but generally they are quite realistic too.The worst fans in the world for overrating their team are LFC fans. Every single year in August all you can hear is Liverpools match of the day season ticket holders banging on about how 'this year the title will be ours', then every November its 'next year will be our year'.
Everton FC are going though a tough time at the min what with Liverpool city council saying no to just about anything we ask for but then licking Liverpools are whenever they get a chance. Villa are one of the best run teams in the country and the only way for them is up. Newcastle are also in the middle of a very tough period for the club but I do think if the fans had a little bit more patience they would have more joy, everyone hated Allerdyce but he had more of a clue than Keegan who will never have the stomach for a fight in his life.
Borough are really going to struggle to hold on to their young English players next yaer if they can't find some consistency, there will be huge interest in Wheater and Downing but they will only leave for sill fee's , none of this 5million crap and especially not to Newcastle.
Tottenham finaly have a manager who knows how to spend money, expect him to buy players he has already worked with including Diarra and Defo, Pompey will make a pretty penny out of the deals though, 8mill will probably get a pair of Diarras old underpants, closer to 15 and you will be talking.
Everton to sign another player from Liege, mabye Deffour, hopfully Dante.
Villa to continue buying English, they will be interested in Wheater and Downing, Lennon also in Hawwy thinks he can do without him.
Blackburn will move for Alexis Sanchez and will complete the signing of Carlos Villanueva for 5 Million Pounds next week.They will also sign Christian Benitez for 10Million.
Rangers INS Alan Combe £700,000 Alan Hutton £4.5M Mark Reynolds £2M Gennaro Gattuso £2M Rangers OUTS Brahim Hemdani FREE Jean Claude Darcheville £1M Charlie Adam £2M Chris Burke £1.7M Nacho Novo £1M David Weir RETIRING Christian Daily FREE Madjid Bougherra £3M Allan McGregor £4M Next season will be Walter Smiths last as manager, he will be heading upstairs at Ibrox. Taking over will be Craig Levein. No1 Gers News
We all know tevez is on loan at man utd. but he is not owned by West Ham so why would he have to return there? even if there was a "snag" in the court case.
darren Ambrose's move to ipswich will be made permanent in january for 250,000 and david nugent will arrive at portman road on loan until the end of the season because he is not happy with his role at portsmouth
To the guy who posted "rangers to get man utd youngster manucho on loan in january". .ermmmm, don't think so mate. The 2 recent champions league games played recently between man utd and celtic were preceded on each occassion by a friendly reserve match (1st game was under 19) and part of this set–up involved willie mcstay and chris mccart being given the opportunity to run the rule over some "fringe" players from man utd, one of these was Manucho and a deal was discussed to bring him to Parkhead in the summer, this however will be brought forward to january as celtic look for cover upfront – Sheridan has exceeded expectations but Hutchinson is still not first team ready. Manucho will only be allowed to come if Sir Alex is guaranteed the player will be a first–team squad member, Strachan has agreed. Celtic will also sign Silvinho from Barcelona and that's ir for January. 1st team is squad is fine and some promising youngsters will be enough to see 4 in a row home
Florent Malouda will make a move to Inter in the summer for around 15 mil as things are not going as planned for him at Chelsea and Mourinho is a strong admirer. Tottenham will sign Richard Dunne from City for around 6 mil as he is on a great run of scoring own goals at the moment with City and Spurs will be getting tierd of Ledley King's injury problems and will be looking for a permenant partner for Woodgate at centre back. Real Madrid are interested in signing Tevez who would be sold by West Ham from 18–30 mil, however Man UTD are looking more likely to sign Tevez permenantly.
The Arsenal Know It All
Tevez will be staying at manchester utd until summer 2009, at the very least. Ferguson rates the player and at this stage is unwilling to tamper with his strike force. The availability of owen and the price tag is appealing, however it is fergusons opinionn that owen's main asset was his pace and that this is no longer what it was.
Manchester Utd are also firmly considering a move for Buffon and are willing to spend £35 million.
To the guy who said. .
. . Wenger has never spent over 13 mil (Wiltord) on anyone but Tevez is too talented and young for Arsene to pass up at this cut price
he bought REYES 19.5 mill research boys
Man City will move for:
Lassana Diarra (16mil)
Stephen Warnock (5mil)
Mario Gomez (18mil)
Glen Johnson (12mil)
Simao Sabrosa (14mil)
Andriy Arshavin (19mil)
Michael Ball (1mil)
Nedum Onouha (3mil) Liverpool/Blackburn
Elano (8mil) Inter Milan
Darius Vassell (1mil)
Danny Mills (1mil)
Dietmar Hamann (1mil)
With Ballack still not signed to a new deal, City will offer him a £200,000/ week deal to sign for them in the summer.
City may also make a summer bid of £35mil for David Villa and £15mil for Philip Lahm
To the guy that said Keegan is the most overrated manager, you are very wrong. What is all this about he did rubbish at Man City? He got them promoted and made them a stable premier league club so get your facts straight. And Newcastle Utd may not be good enough to challenge for the title but we are certainly good enough to be in the UEFA cup every season. Mike Ashley did nothing good for the club and i'm sure had Sheppard stayed he would've done much better.
On the rumour side of things Kinnear will be staying at least until March and will have a good amount of money from the Americans that have an imminent takeover.
