Football Rumours Archive October 18 2009

 

Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.



I too heard of the "bust up" at Celtic park on Saturday. Boruc and McDonald had to be separated after Boruc critiscised McDonald for his unbelievable miss. McDonald responded by pointing out Boruc's recent positional howlers against Rapid and Rangers.

Boruc announced that he was off in January and Brown supposedly told him "bye bye".

Mowbray told the players that he had money to replace some of the team in January, with McGeady getting upset as Mowbray was looking at him at the time.

Things need sorted NOW or January will be too late. Too many of us have failed to notice that despite their weakened financial position Rangers have only lost once in the SPL in 2009 (Against INVERNESS!!!!).

Mowbray needs it sorted now, or get out NOW!

Super JoBo

 

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez will not be given the sack. Liverpool have been in contact will possible replacements but all have declined to take the manager role. Benitez though will be told by the owners to get rid of the average players such as Lucas and replace them with better squad players. Players who will come for free are Pandev, Nilton, Lavezzi (he will buy out his contract) Jadson and Fernandinho.

 

Hello, me again. any birmingham city transfer rumours please? many thanks for any info

Gold and sullivan to buy Crystal Palace for 10m

 

Man United to sign young goalkeeper Ochoa to replace Van Der Sar when he retires.

Rio will retire soon as he is really struggling with his back injury and he doesn't see the point in playing football for much longer as his back will always let him down. Replacement for him will be Evans... He will be starting alot more games for United after christmas.

Man United will try for Frank Ribery again in January offering a Nani plus cash deal to them.

Yoann Gourcuff will sign for United as a Paul Scholes replacement for when he retires. Many think that United will be dominant again if this player really does sign for them.

Some will arrive in January and some will arrive next summer. Total to be spent by United on these replacements will be around £65 million and some players will also be sold... These will be decided as the league goes on.

""""BREAKING NEWS: Benitez to be fired after this week's Champions League game. This will pave the way for F6 to takeover as they do not want Benitez as manager of the club. The Summer will consist of LFC ridding themselves of the dead weight that Benitez has accumulated over the last 5 years which will be a major financial hit to the club in next year's transfer market. This will trigger the transfer of Torres to balance the books. Nobody is bigger than the club. Everyone at LFC understands that except for Benitez. """"

Torres will not leave LFC. Stop the bad rumours.

When Benitez is sacked, I expect the players to go will be :
Lucas 7.25m (with Rafa to Madrid)
Voronin 3m (Anywhere)
Babel (loan)
Itandje 500k(Valenciennes)
Kyrgiakos 3m(AEK)
Degen 5m(Sunderland)
Dossena 8m (Sampdoria or Roma)
El Zhar 4m (Championship or Bham/Wolves/Burnley/Stoke/Hull)

ANY IDEAS WHO THE NEW MANAGER WILL BE? Keegan? Klinnsman? Mourinho? Dalglish? Hodgson? Zico?

 

"Rafa Benitez will be sacked at new year if Liverpool are 6 or more points behind 1st placed in the league. Defeat against Man Utd on Wednesday would just be another nail in his coffin." This is correct although my Anfield source claims that the nail in the coffin will be defeat to Lyons on Sunday."

Firstly, since when are Champions League games played on Sundays and Premier League games are played on the Wednesday. Liverpool play Lyon, Man Utd, Lyon.

If Rafa Benitez doesn't have at least 4 points from Lyon and doesn't beat Man Utd, he will be given one more game to save his job. Failure to win and he's gone.

 

"Rafa Benitez will be sacked at new year if Liverpool are 6 or more points behind 1st placed in the league. Defeat against Man Utd on Wednesday would just be another nail in his coffin."

This is correct although my Anfield source claims that the nail in the coffin will be defeat to Lyons on Sunday.

 

My sources close to hull city say they will target 3 players in january a midfielder and two strikers.

the midfielder being don cowie of watford, a recent scotland cap. however watford will look for atleist 700, 000 and the two clubs are close to an agreement.

the strikers are michael chopra and georgios samaras who would both cost a combined 7 million. very likely to be done by january.

 

Bayern Munich to sign 3 players from the premiership in january. They are struggling defensively and need some strong leaders to sort this out. A goalkeeper, left back, centre back and defensive midfielder(from abroad league) will all be bought with £25million to spend. The names are all familiar, Chris Kirland will be signed for £8million as goalie, left back will be matthew taylor for £9million and he will operate at left back and cover left mid, and finally £8million signing jermaine jenas will sign from tottenham if he can not become first choice

 

Birmingham...

Blues to have a new manager by xmas, and, he'll have a million few yen to spend.... :) noice!!
the new owners are very concerned and so are the players at the total lack of coaching and tactical ability at the club....

 

Celtic After yet another poor display the Celtic dressing room was a war of words last night. Unable to beat Motherwell it was not only the manager who let rip!! This story comes from a steward within the main stand who is also responsible for escorting players down the tunnel at full釦ime. Although he was outside he could hear nearly all that was said....Artur Boruc was the most outspoken player, insisting that unless changes were made he would be off in January, he laid the blame firmly at the feet of Scott Brown, Gary Caldwell, Stephen McManus, Scott McDonald and Giorgios Samaras he basically insisted they were not good enough, a statement that Mowbray himself agreed with in part, he cited Caldwell, McManus, McDonald and Samaras and gave Brown some benefit of the doubt due to his niggling injury. HOWEVER...Mowbray, who did want 3 "good" players in January now realises that at least 6 are required and he only hopes that the league is not gone by then. He is happy with goalkeepers (boruc and zaluska/rb's (hinkel wilson and caddis/lb's (fox and naylor)/wide players (mcgeady maloney, mcginn and mccourt) and the returning Barry Robson and Zheng Zhi....EVERYONE else needs to prove themselves before Jan 1 or they will be out/replaced. The only saving grace in all of this is that Rangers also have their weakest team in years, and that is a blessing. Never give up, but time is of the essence for Mowbray now. Roy Keane has been mentioned before, but not now...IF Celtic (and rfc) want to go to england or atlantic league then they need players who will compete and a manager who can instill belief/passion/skill.

 

Hicks Holding has called an emergency meeting for Wednesday of this week in their Dallas offices to discuss Benitez's firing now vs. the compensation and release of him in December (which was agreed to earlier this month). Additionally, they are troubled by the team selection this weekend against Sunderland.

As a story of Benitez's team selections will be published in the coming days how Torres and Gerrard were more than fit for the game this weekend. Benitez had them qualified as injured: 1) He knew he would lose at Sunderland regardless of there inclusion and 2) This would allow Benitez to make an excuse for the loss. 3)People/ press would talk more about their absence vs. his poor managing and transfers.

This type of strategy allowed Benitez to save his job for another couple days until Gillet and Hicks pull the trigger on his departure most likely after the Champions League game this week. G & H know they still have massive home and aways against the top 5 this year, which means another 45 loses.

Looking like mid釦able for Liverpool the 90's are back at Anfield.

In the Know.

 

I heard all the ManU fans are buying up beach balls so they can throw them onto the field when Owen and Berbatov playing...as they see this as the only way they'll find the net.

 

((( AFC Bulletin )))

Udinese player Gokhan Inler might sign 4 AFC come Jan , his agent Dino Lamberti has aid so . Possable move by AW 4 Bayer Laverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling , the 25 year old has scored 6 goals in 8 games and is thought 2 be on AW wish list . ST. Etienne player Blaise Matuidi is unlikley 2 move AFC or any where else as he's 2 sign a contract extension with ST. Etienne . . Troare is unlikley 2 leave AFC as AW has said so, he might replace Silvestre . It's heard AW is intereted in Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross and may sign him 2 replace Senderos .

 

Rafa Benitez will be sacked at new year if Liverpool are 6 or more points behind 1st placed in the league.
Defeat against Man Utd on Wednesday would just be another nail in his coffin.

 

WHUFC NEWS=
Christmas is to come early for the hammers. Jim Bowe to take over the club by the end of November. He will pay of the £100m debt and will give Gianfranco Zola a massive £40m to spend in January, and about the same amount in the Summer. Even if we are still struggling come January Zola will not be sacked, but Scott Duxbury and Gianluca Nani will all be sent packing. Zola still however wants a technical director, but someone who he knows and trust. I expect someone like Gus Poyet as the favourite for the job. New long term contracts will be offered to both Robert Green, Matthew Upson plus all the other promising young players coming through. Robert Green is likely to stay but it is belived Upson still wants to join Man City plus Micah Richards in exchange.
January Ins=
Marouane Chamakh Bordeaux 5m,
Carlos Vela Arsenal 5m,
Micah Richards Man City FREE,
Steven Taylor Newcastle 4m + Gabbidon,

Ipswich/Hibernian NEWS
Roy Keane will be sacked this week after a very abysmal start to the season & Ipswich chairman Marcus Evans has set his sights on Hibernian manager John Hughes, Evans and his board have been very impressed with what Hughes has done so far at Hibs and i have heard that he will get Hughes no matter what it will cost. THE BIG MAN....

 

After the defeat to Sunderland and having already lost 3 games beforehand Liverpool will consider kicking Rafa out. Mourinho has been lined up as the perfect replacement.

 

BREAKING NEWS: Benitez to be fired after this week's Champions League game. This will pave the way for F6 to takeover as they do not want Benitez as manager of the club. The Summer will consist of LFC ridding themselves of the dead weight that Benitez has accumulated over the last 5 years which will be a major financial hit to the club in next year's transfer market. This will trigger the transfer of Torres to balance the books. Nobody is bigger than the club. Everyone at LFC understands that except for Benitez.
