– –Luton Town Rumours– –
Following the recent announcement in the local press by the Watson–Challis family regarding the land at J10 for the new stadium, expect a consorium fronted by ex–manager Mike Newell to get control on the club and build the new ground at J10. The current board are panacking that supporters are getting restless over issues at the club. Newell sees this as a great chance to get once over the people who sacked him earlier in the season. Once complete, Blackwell and his team will be given the boot. Expect to see Luton guided by Newell back in the Championship with a spanking new ground at J10. UP THE HATTERS.

Liverpool and Man United are locked in a two way battle to sign Elano from Manchester City in January. Both clubs have been impressed at how he has settled and adapted to the English game and are now ready to offer him his dream move, the fee is believed to be around £10 Million has already been agreed with Elano's team of advisors.
Steve Staunton will depart the Republic of Ireland job this week, however, the highly rated Staunton already has another job to go to, a four year contract at Norwich City awaits his signature. Staunton will swiftly appoint Jason McAteer as his Assistant. Meanwhile, former Canaries boss Peter Grant will take over at Bournemouth once Kevin Bond, as widely believed, leaves the club.
Kenwyn Jones' stay at Sunderland is expected to be a short one with Liverpool set to sign him in January.
Wolverhampton Wanderers to sign Walsall winger Ishmail Demontagnac in a deal which will see Carl Ikeme go the other way.
Craig, UP THE WOLVES
Everton and a number of other Premiership teams are currently watching Kenwyne Jones who has impressed this season with Sunderland expect clubs to offer £8 million and over.
Mark Hughes is on his way to Tottenham with Jewell replacing him at Blackburn. Jewell will then go back to raid Wigan.
Arsene knows Lets just get a few things straight.AW will not be signing 7 or eight players that people are suggesting on here, he will sign 2 in January and then perhaps 2 or 3 in the Summer.
Arsenal are no longer interested in Miguel Veloso (sporting) and Arsene Wenger is not looking for another goalkeeper.These are the players that he will make moves for.
Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb)
Samir Nasri (Marseille)
Karim Benzema (lyon)
Macauley Chrisantus (fc abuja)
Yohann Mollo (as Monaco).
Hatem Ben Arfa (lyon) and Jeremy Menez (as Monaco) are also on the radar but only if Modric, Nasri or Benzema are not signed.
Arsene wants Luka Modric. He has wanted him for over a year, and it will happen. Otherwise, it is hard to predict who he will move for. Gilberto is likely out soon, I cannot see Rosicky there forever if Modric comes in (Modric is like a multidimensional Rosicky – the REAL Deal and one of the best mids in the world for years to come). At some point Arsene will want a world class GK. Shoring up the defense is always important, and if that perfect forward comes along and Dudu has not cut it yet that is where Arsene will go. And he will keep acquiring and acquiring young 15 to 17 Y. o. talent.
