Michael Owen will return to Liverpool for just £4 million in January as Rafa Benitez seeks cover to push through his title assault. Robbie Keane will be offloaded in the summer with Manchester City and Tottenham willing to pay up to £10 million for the Irish striker.
Didier Drogba could be poised for a January exit at Chelsea with Adriano in line to join Chelsea as part of the swap. Scolari is keen on the Brazilian.
To the blind Gers man who wrote
Keane , downing , Bellamy , Arshavin , You sellick fans sure make me laugh . Even to take that lot on loan would cost you 300,000 a week in wages ! Bellamy mibi but hes on 80,000 a week and would need to take a huge wage cut . As i have said before stop taking the drugs !!!!!! Dont think you listend think you have started taking more !!!!!! Rangers to sign Alan Smith on loan till end of season as he is a Gers man hes willing to move to the spl and take a wage cut we will also sell Bouggera Adam Burke Beasley and release Daily Hemdani and JCD who all have new teams to go to and 6 months only on there contracts Rangers also Back in for Danny shittu Berra ,Driver And lovenkrands is already a done deal!
Yous are the ones wetting your pants over Arshavin out of your list you will get berra and lovenkrands celtic will sign bellamy – maybe only if he wants to come back because there will have to be wage cuts and maybe driver not much activaty going to happen with both club untill summer.
Some Major news from the most succesfull club in the world,yes my friends Glasgow Rangers:
The bears are to conclude 4 big deals in January:
Arshavin – ??? – there is a deal in place in regards to sell ons, percentage of next fee's etc as none of the so called top clubs in england, spain etc are willing to touch him!
Berra – £3 million pound for the next scotland and Rangers captain, great bit of business.
Tonel £2 million – the next Cuellar
Driver – £1 million to play on the left
All these deals will be funded buy the sales of
Boughera – £4.5 Marseilles
Beasley – £1 million – Spain
Darcheville – £200,000 Valencienes
Adam + Burke – £1 million – Both Forrest
Daily – Hemdani – Smith all to be released although Smith may well stay until the summer!

Arsenal – ashley young 15 mill if not aiden mcgeady 8 mil
I know a lot of people take the micky on this forum but when you think about it the majority of it is not far away from the truth, take yesterdays rumour "Probably Allardyce, but what do i know?" Well mate you were spot on as the next blackburn manager. OK not rocket science but don't knock yourself down. It's fair to say that Keane now appears to be a Liverpool Board buy rather than a RAFA buy. The engineering appears to be moving with keane looking at returnng leaving a vacancy open for Owen,. .Me i have serious misgivings about this and don't want it to happen, a great player but a man with not a lot of integrity when it comes to allegiance. The question is if it does happen will it be another Board buy ?
Celtic news; driver 95% certain to sign, as well as fletcher, zaluska and sylvinho. the board may go big and make a huge swoop for pavlyuchenko or arshavin if they are serious about getting further in the champions league. pavlyuchenko may come for a cut price of 5–6 million, arshavin highly highly unlikely but arshavin desperate to leave and zenit want him gone. remember, i told you about mcginn and misun 2 weeks before it happened, and last summer i told you about crosas,maloney and hutchinson days before it happened.
Whos the interested parties in buying west ham any info anyone.

Secondly will be the signing of Andrei Arshavin of Zenit (Zenit have granted Arshavin a transfer in Januay) for around 25 mil. Finally will be the signing of Ashley Young of Villa for around 20 mil. James Milner will take Youngs' place in the first XI at Villa. Man City will be making no 50 odd mil signings.

To the person who wrote this below:
I WROTE ON HERE SOME WEEKS AGO THAT THE McGEADY/ STRACHAN SITUATION WAS UNTENABLE AND THE DEPARTURE OF THE TRICKY WINGER IS IMMINENT. McGEADY IS BEING SINGLED OUT AFTER EVERY DODGY RESULT WHILE CULPRITS LIKE BORUC, MCDONALD, SAMARAS AND THE WHOLE BACK 4 REMAIN UNTOUCHABLE.
UNLESS THE BOARD PULL A RABBIT OUT THE HAT WITH A COUPLE OF MAJOR SIGNINGS – SLIM CHANCE – THE WEE GINGER MAN WILL BE TEMPTED BY ONE OF THE EVER INCREASING ENGLISH PREMIER VACANCIES, AS THE FANS LOSE AN ALREADY WELL WORN PATIENCE OVER HIS MIS – HANDLING OF ANOTHER TOP PLAYER.
I Know the true story behind this belive me!!
Aiden has been causing grief for Celtic Fc for some time. His nightlife activities has caused so much hastle for the club and the police have indeed been in touch with the club about his behaviour. The FACT that all the other players actualy take the critisism and get on with it and aiden spits the dummy out shows the level of mentality he has. I like him as a player but no one is bigger than the club. Pretty stupid comments about "others being untouchable"!!.

ALL NEWCASTLE FANS
I saw Leighton Baines of Everton along with Real Madrid striker Saviola outside St James' park yesterday. With their agents present with the Newcastle chief executives, it is likely Newcastle United will seal the deal for the duo within the next 14 days. Baines is unhappy with a lack of first team opportunities at Everton. The Baines transfer will cost 6million with Saviola costing 8million. Also, I personally know Amiobi's agent he has told me that it is a certainty the striker will seal a transfer to Celtic before the new year for a fee of 2.5million. Also, Newcatsle will continue to negotiate with Newcastle but he will eventually be sold to Liverpool for 2.5million.
Newcastle will look to sign Tttenham's out of favour attacking midfielder Giovanni Dos Santos. He is desperate for much needed first team football so Newcastle will swoop for the Mexican in a swap involving Owen + 5M. Kinnear has contacted Spurs about the possible transfer and is expected to be completed by a week on Sunday!!! 110% TRUE!!!

Aiden McGeady set to leave club in January with Everton, Newcastle and Bayern Munich all interested.
NEWCASTLE BREAKING NEWS
Joey Barton will leave for Celtic during the January transfer window with McGeady being offered as part of a swap deal with Newcastle. Barton is eager to find a new club after a bust up in training whilst Celtic are looking to offload McGeady after a fall out with Strachen. This deal looks almost certain to happen.

All this talk about McGeady – get this straight, he is out the only question is where is he off to? rumour is that Newcastle could do a swap plus cash deal involving Duff coming to the Hoops. Any other move will be for cash only and will probably be from one of the top 8 in England. About time the inconsistent wee git left anyway!
Sam allardyce will offload santa cruz to manchester city for 20mil and mccarthey to to somewhere abroad for 6mil, and he will also be given 15mil to spend in janurary so with 41mil to spend he will sign.
nolan will come in for 5mil as blackburn have a lot of injurys in that position. he will also try and sign owen for 4mil and alexis sanchez for 7mil. he will replace robinson with jaaskalinin 2.5mil.since rovers don't have a right sided midfielder he will sign diego capel for 8mil. and will sign eboue for right back 4mil
ALL CELTIC FANS
Celtic backup striker Chris Killen has been linked with a loan move to Dundee for the second half of the season as he wants first team football.
INS: Sylvinho (FREE)
Milan Misun (FREE)
Kevin McDonald (1M)
Robbie Keane (LOAN)
OUT: Killen (LOAN)
Everyone is saying about D.I.C coming back in for Liverpool and taking over them but has anyone accually read anything or heard anything or is all just rumours??
Also i feel as a Liverpool fan we still need a right winger maybe we could go in for Elano at City, Quaresma of Inter or even if we were able to mk enough money get Sergio Kun Aguero
Tony Mowbray will have money to spend in the transfer window and will be looking to sign:
My girlfriend works at the emirates and has just called to tell me that Gallas is on his way to ac milan in Jan, apparently ac will also make Senderos' loan move permanent, the combined price– none other than Mathieu Flamini, who is apparently missing north London and in particular playing alongside Cesc. The missus tells me that there is a lot of excitement around the office at the moment as everyone was very sad to see him leave in the first place.
This just leaves Wenger to find a suitable replacement at cb, however it will only be one as apparently Wenger has been very impressed with Djourou since the Chelski game, where apart from the own goal he had a blinder. Word from the emirates is that Upson tops Wenger wish list and Arsenal are preparing a bid in the region of £8m. Mexes is still an option but Wenger would prefer an English cb due to the uncertainty surrounding Blatters 6+5 rule.
Arsenal fans can also expect to see the back of either denilson or song who just don't cut the mustard, with ramsay and wilshere given more first team playing time.
