Sir Alex has a dilema regarding his strike options. Muchacho will not get a work permit. Saha is out for a month (then needs match fitness) Dong has not impressed and on loan campbell (hull) is playing well so will not be recalled. that leaves Rooney and Tevez. Sir Alex dosent want to lose the teams shape by playing Ronaldo down the middle. if either Rooney or Tevez were to get injured there would be serious problems. So the following moves will be made:
Huntaler £12 million (Ajax do not need to sell) 25 percent chance
Defoe (5 million) United will agree to end all the speculation regarding Berbatov (almost agreed).
in the Summer United will move for Jones from Sunderland offering players (evens Eagles and dong and the Brazilian twins on loan. )
that is the the changes upfront I will post when I know about the changes in the rest of thje squad.
Celtic are in the Hunt for Jason Koumas. Will it happenen? 50–50. They do need a few players as the team is playing in second gear with no real flair there. Mizuno will bring the however the midfeildcould prove to be a bit lightweight. Koumas ideal. Scott Brown linked with Newcastle again and Celtic would sell for 8–10 million. A steal for Celtic. Also Celtic has been keping closeeyes on Voronin of Liverpool but again aloan movis highly unlikely. Also Celtic are in the Hunt for an Italian defender but I do not know whom. I beleive he plays with one the the Rome clubs. Celtic are also in the Hunt for a new goaile and the chivas no 1 goalkeper seems to be a real go ahead. In addition, a move for Saviolais out of the question as heis on 90 grand a week and would not be in Celtics interest to pay such sums. The Celtic teamnow is full of hyped up Scottish Premier League players who can not see that this is the worst side for entertaing in years. Something is needed however Celtic will struggle to get the mouths of the fans watering.
all this talk of there being no DIC takeover bid is fans of other clubs being extremly jelousI am not a Liverpool fan I am a Arsenal fan however my Uncle works for the maktoum family in dubai he is in control of one of there retail park there and said that the maktoums are will buy Liverpool at sum point in the near future however it could drag on to Summer due to the Americans being extremly proud and want to fight for the club how ever they will not get there loan for the club and the club will fall into the hands of the bank and then DIC will be buy the club off them.the bank do not want to give the Americans a loan because they no that DIC are willing to pay 500 million for the LFC and that would mean that would make 150 million as the Americans loan is only 350 million.once DIC takeover Rick Parry will be sacked. David Dein possible candidate but who will take over is not comfirmed. DIC feel that Rick Parry is only in the job because of his friendship with David Moores who made sure he had job even when he was bought out. DIC feel he has no business skills and beleive that the moves he has made are for his own benefits rather than the club.
Rangers players in. Danny koovermans £2 million + buffel. hutton out. £10 million– Man United
Keegan will be given large sums of money to spend but he will prefer though wait until the Summer to spend it. However, he will look to buy two defenders before the window slams shut.
Bridge of Chelsea and Richard Dunne of Man City could come in.
Newcastle are poised to sign David Beckham in the Summer. Kevin Keegan wants the England winger to join Michael Owen on Newcastleside. Keegan is prepared to sell Ameobi, Martins and Viduka as he lines up several new forwards including Dean Ashton and Benni McCarthy. Keegan is also poised to sign a handful of other players.
Only two strong rumours that I heard about coming into Liverpool: –
Bridge – £5 million
Nasri – £12.5 million
Going Out: –
Crouch – £9 million
Sissoko – £8 million
Leto – £1.5/Loan
Rafa feels the following are needed and achievable to ensure a title push:
1. David Silva (30 million)
2. Javier Mascherano (17 million)
3. Eidur Gudjohnsen (3 million)
4. Wayne Bridge (5 million)
Leaving will be:
1. Andrey Voronin (free)
2. Momo Sissoko (10 million)
3. Scott Carson (10 million)
4. John Arne Riise (5 million)
Whoever said Sammy Lee to become next Liverpool manager must be on drugs. Whoever told him that is winding him up. With Bolton Wanderers Sammy – who is a Liverpool legend but not good enough to be manager – had them a the bottom of the table. that is below Derby County. Stop being so gullabe mate and put a rumour on when you can establish the facts.
Also Liverpool will not sell Crouch yet. Harry Kewell to Fulham next Summer, followed by Sami: – (
Whoever says DIC do not want to takeover is having a laugh. They love the reds. And they are loaded and will not have to take out a loan to buy the club ( No names mentioned. Cough. Gillet. Cough. Hicks. Cough)
Also, On the Tottenham front, Defoe will not leave until the Summer at least.
With Frank Lampard stalling on a Chelsea contract until the end of the season, if a deal, is not done then. expect him to leave for FC Barcelona on a free transfur. remember.
Keep you posted on DIC xx
Nigeria Keeper Vincent Enyeama is being approached by many different British clubs including Everton, Rangers and Aston Villa if they cannot keep Carson. However Tottenham are favourites to sign Enyeama as a replacement to Paul Robinson. However if Enyeama fails to impress in the African cup of nations he can forget about his dream move to the UK.
I Heard From A Taxi Driver in Glasgow That Rangers Are To Invest Big Money In Signing 4 Highly Rated Players And The Cousin Is Leaving For Osasuna
Everton to inquire abOut: Arashvin, Hutton, Sidwell, Van Buyton, Eddie Johnson (loan), Vogel (free) and Justin Hoyte. Jonny COYB.

Mark McGhee was today in talks with Romanov at Hearts.
Radomir Antic is currently Hearts number 1 choice for the managerial vacancy. The Spanish trialist is Artiz Martinez who was on trial in the Summer.
Everton FC could be set to join the race to sign FC Brno's attacking midfielder Lubos Kalouda. Transfer talks have stalled with Juve and FC Brno over the fee.
I work at St. James Park and have arranged a meeting between Dean Ashton and his agent with Chris Mort and Kevin Keegan tommorow morning. This meeting is to finalise personal terms of a deal which is worth £10 million pound and Ameobi going the other way. Expect announcement later this week.

Ricky Foster (Aberdeen – Left Back) 600 k
Alan Gow (loan – Falkirk, Hibernian, Kilmarnock)

This week Newcastle will sign Dean Ashton to be his new Alan Shearer, I have just seen him outside Newcastle, huge signing for toon. Also rumours have it we have made a bid for Deco but do not know whether that is true but Dean Ashtonn will definitely sign.
