Steve gerrard will be leaving liverpool in mid january to start a fresh life in spain,gerrard isn't getting on with rafael benitez,and is not liking life in liverpool.Reality check required.
West Ham will strengthen only areas Alan Pardow is concerned about - Right Midfield and cover for Left Midfield.
SWP and possibly the Swiss guy are the likely top prospects. All other names quoted here are pure speculation.
Mid-table safety this season will provide the foundation for a push toward the top 6 next time.-Chelsea news-
Chelsea will be looking to bring in another striker in January. As Drogba and Sheva are the only top quality ones. Expect it to be Kone form PSV or Hunntelar from Ajax. Robben and Joe Cole are attracting interest from Man Utd with Cole being high on the wish list, he isn't getting regular games and wants to be playing week in week out. SWP will move on loan to West Ham in Jan and Wayne Bridge has signed a new four yaer contract with the blues. If Micah Richards ever reaches Chelsea (which I don't think he will) expect Ferreira to move to spain or Portugal. Chelsea like to buy all the young English talent and were gutted when they missed out on Walcott. If Abramovich's impending divorce loses him a lot of money he may pull out of Chelsea and wouldn't all the fans in the country (except Chelsea) like that!West Bromich Albion captain Curtis Davies will leave the Hawthorns next summer. The young English defender almost joined Arsenal in July but decided to sign a new contract in the Midlands. However, Davies will again be the subject of several bids and will consider moving on if West Brom fail to live up to expectations. Arsenal have no need to go back for Davies with Phillipe Senderos, William Gallas, Kolo Toure and Johan Djourou firmly placed at the Emirates, but their North London rivals Tottenham could be ready to revive their apparent interest from the summer. I saw that someone said yesterday that Newcastle would be interested, and that could also be true. Glenn Roeder knows he has to bolster his defence, especially after he failed to replace Jean Alain Boumsong in the summer. However, a move in January is off the table as the skipper would like to see if West Brom are promoted, plus the club would refuse any bids for the player.Michael Tonge to move from Sheffield United to Leicester City ?! Dont make me laugh! He got his break at United and is a first team regular although he is currently out with an injury. More likely to be going in Jan, are
Ade Akinbiyi, Alan Wright(currently out on loan at Cardiff), Chris Lucketti, David Unsworth, Paul Ifill, Geoff Horsfield and David Sommeil. Ifill and Horsfield are to be part of the deals that sees Kilgallon and possibly Richard Cresswell come to the Lane. Cresswell will come if NW fails to bring in Nugent or the Maltese international Michael Mifsud from Lillestrom. Michael Ball will become the new Left back from PSV. Most impressive signing of all will be Alan smith on loan from Manchester United as he wants to restart his career after injury but wants to do it in the Premiership. Also just across the Pennines so Man Utd can keep an eye on his progress. Up The Blades! CorbyBladeSP Special
I am from Hong Kong. Thus a Manchester United.
I am here to post rumors not REALISTIC TRANSFERS.
About the New Leader in ManU
1.The first person who is mostly linked is Lippi.
Lippi learned English to prepare to take over.
2.Lippi is a strong person who manages players similar to Sir Alex. Slex had always been looking for take over.
Secondly, let's talk about Goalkeepers' businness
1.The number one target is Buffon of course. Though depending on whether Juventus is going back to Italy 1st league and money offered and other clubs like Arsenal, AC etc's compitition.
The chance is lower than 30%.
2.Van Der Saar is not retiring until new goalkeeper is found.
3.Ben Foster is returing.
Secondly, about Defenders.
1.Gary Neville is old now. Sir Alex is looking for a new talented player.
2.The first target is rafinha. 65% 7mil
3.The second target is a new talent in Seville.
(I forgot the name, I will find, then tell you guys later.)
As for the Mid-Fields,
1.Daneil Del Rossi 20mil 50%
2.Reo-coker 11mil 60%
3.Hargreaves 17mil 95%
4.Mascherano 15mil 65%
Daneil Del Rossi may ne expensive, but still a very good player though Roma may turn down the offer. ManU has to compete with Arsenal to get Reo-coker. Hargreaves will be let free if he is really deperate to go to ManU. Also a good sum of money is needed.Mascherano will be cheaper due to the lack of goodness in Matches.
Attacking Mid-field:(replace for Scholes)
1.Van Der Varrt 17 mil 80%
2.Kerlon 10 mil 95%
3.Kaka 30 mil 30%
4.Schwinger 17 mil 75%
5.Ribery 20 mil 50%
6.Arron Lennon 15 mil 70%
7.Jenes 13 mil 65%
8.Freddy Adu 15 mil 80%
9.Ronaldino 35 mil 65%
10.Shuan Wright-Philips 13mil 85%
11.Momest Pedersen 10 mil 95%
12.Kevin nolan 10 mil 95%
Van Der Varrt is linked with ManU very Early before. He had a will to go to ManU, but he went to Hamburg to gain experience. Because they won 2nd, he stayed.But this year they are so bad, he may go somewhere else.Kerlon=new Ronaldinho.Kaka may go away due to AC Milan failure. He is so good, but his team aren't, ManU will have to pay a lot of money and compete with Real Madrid.Schwinger's Contract may end soon, and he will leave the old times of bayern, if hagreaves does not come eventually, Schwinger may be earlier to prevent loss.Ribery, is a new talent, compete against Arsenal.Arron Lennon is also a new talent, though left wing, but still proved to be the new Attack Mid-Field. But still had to compete with Chelsea.Lastly, Jenas may follow Carrick to ManU.Freddy Adu's chance increased when he went to ManU for trainning, talking may happen.Ronaldino can be coming.he is not happy in Camp Nou.ManU is one of the clubs that wanted him when he is young.He likes Manu.Shuan Wright-Philips is proven to be worthless in Chelsea, and may be wanting to leave.He likes Manchester(place) due to he is from Manchester City, but he will not return there, it is a shame. Therefore he will want to go to Manchester United instead, still in the same city.Momest Pedersen is a long target from ManU, he had proven to be good, so ManU will buy him.Nolan proved to be a new England Mid-Fielder. So, he may want to move to bigger clubs to attend the national England team. And only ManU is intersted.Also, ManU will love him beacause he can be a DM too!
Thirdly, Left wing for Giggs.
1.Robben 25mil 75%
2.Vincente 15mil 60%
3.Nani 10mil 90%
4.Pirlo 20mil 25%
5.Downing 10mil 70%
6.Joe Cole 25mil 50%
Robben wanting to leave, compete with Real Madrid and leage sum of money to Chelsea.He had the choice to enter ManU before, and he said he likes ManU when they first met him, only money matters.He is sorry to decide wrongly before, so he will re-choose.Vincente is a good winger. nani wants to join CRonaldo, so it is a good choice. But still, money is very important.Pirlo is the best choice.Downing proved to be a good player in both nationa England team and Middle.lastly, if Robben fail to come, Joe Cole may enter, but still compete with Arsnal.Very expensive.
Forthly, a striker.
1. Torres 25mil 90%
2. HUntelaar 12mil 80%
Torres is the first selection, good striker, though may not be comfotable in England. He WILL NOT go to CHELSEA. He had proven himself as a non-money person. And also Chelsea had too much strikers. He will choose ManU.If torres fail to come, HUntelaar will be cheaper and even better to adopt new life in England, but still compitition from a lot of clubs.
Last but not least.
ManU will get out of debt this year, a lot of income!
Fergie may spend more before his retirment to help the new manager.
Lippi will sell old players and nad youngsters.
He will then buy expansive good players.
As for the cups and leagues,
ManU will win the tittle if they win Chelsea this Sunday.
ManU will give their best in Champions League, then they will have at least 50% getting the chamopion.
ManU will maybe win the English Cup(or is it Carling Cup)???!
SP Special.Thank you!To the idiot who reckons leeds will sell killgannon 2 reading 4 700k cos leeds want rid, wake up!. Killa doesn't wnt 2 leave, wisey does, want to sell his best young player and if he did go he would cost around 2million as he is an enland u21 regular. The only leeds player to definately leave is healy for 3.5million to either reding, charlton,sheff utd, watford, bolton. as he wants to leave an leeds will cash in so they can sign : mcleod (mk dons 700k)

flavahan (southend 200k)I'm a leeds fan so am not biased to any of the bg teams in the premiership and these are realistic transfer for january.
Chelsea. In: deco(only if lampard goes to barca and it will be a swap) . out: wrightphillips (westham or atletico madrid), robben ( real madrid or inter ,ilan)
Man utd. In: hargreaves or senna, nani( for a ridiculous money) Out: richardson(west ham), smith(bayern munich), o'shea (celtic)
Arsenal. In: gordon (hearts) Out: nobody
Liverpool. In: lobos, butelle,simao. Out: reina, hypia, zenden, aurellio, fowler, diaoLuton Town are looking to extend the loan deal of Pompey goalkeeper Dean Kiely until the end of the season in January and Mike Newell will have until Christmas to save his job or be replaced by Iain Dowie. Although the fans don't want to see Newell get the sack, he is under pressure from Tomlins, the chairman. Hopefully if Newell stays - then he is looking at signing Liverpool midfielders Lee Peltier and Paul Anderson on loan until the end of the season.
I see a Rangers fan said Brown and Naismith are Rangers fans
I would like to say i know Scott Brown is a Dunfermline fan as he was in my cousins class in school and they went to matches together and Naismith is a CELTIC fan
How can you possibly think Brown is a Rangers fan???
have you ever seen him play against Rangers????
I recall him calling Barry Ferguson a "fnny" on the pitch, also winding up Buffel and hes been booked against Rangers more than any other team. FACT
I also remind you of last month Barry Ferguson saying in the papers "Hibs must have sent the wrong player on international duty, he (Scott Brown) has been as quiet as a mouse, which is different to his usual behaviour of acting like a spoiled kid"
Brown, Thomson and Naismith with be wearing the Hoops come August FACT!
Were will Brown and Thomson fell more at home at:
The team who are progressing and becoming the kings of Scottish football who are doing well in the Champions League and will be second seeds in our CL Group again next year meaning we will probably progress to the next round again next year
The team who will be Champions in the next few seasons at least
The team managed by a Good Scottish manager and an Ex-Quality player
Who has nurtured youngsters before including:
and now at Celtic hes working his magic on:
The flapping Frenchman Paul Le Guen
Who has debatingly Worsened the Rangers team
The only youngsters he has made into good players are:
Essien and Diarra
even though Diarra was already a Starter when Le Guen took over and was a starter when he left
and he signed Essien for £5.3m and hardly played him until his last season when he impressed and Chelsea signed himCeltic will sign Brown and Thomson
They were at Celtic Park for The Man Utd match
In an Executive Suite with their agent Willie McKay and Celtic's chief executive Peter Lawwell as most of you will know is the Guy who deals with the Transfer activity at Celtic Park

Micky Adams to bring Michael Misfud and either Marton Fulop/Rowen Fernandez to The Fortress Ricoh either in January or at the end of the season. Darren Currie will make his loan from Ipswich permanent in January. Expect Dele Adebola, Matt Heath, Don Hutchison (retire) and Colin Cameron to leave at the end of season if not before.Who ever said Kerlon will turn 18 just after the transfer window closes, you are wrong, he was born jan 1988, so he's already 18, he'll be 19 next jan.
anyway sum rumours
Man Utd will get Torres in the summer not jan, as they will try and go for Hargreaves in jan, also comming in jan will be NaniLIVERPOOL FC rumours
1/ Benitez is not considering getting rid of BELLAMY, GONZALEZ or PENNANT,
2/ M RICHARDS and L FABIANO will NOT be joining at least not jan.
3/ Whoever said GERRARD is considering his future because of an involvement between his WIFE and a bouncer is talking diddly. GERRARD ISNT MARRIED YOU IDIOT.
4/ BALE, NOLAN and two Argentine WONDERKIDS is true.
5/ Hearing through the grapevine AGBONLAHOR is a possibility if Villa buy SWP and Defoe/Keane.Firstly to the person who said tevez and mascherano(excuse spelling) can't leave, your'e wrong, Didi Hamman signed for Bolton, to then sign for Man City days after, so they can leave.
Now for the rumour, Norwich City will look to C. Daily of West Ham to tighten up the defence, and will look for cover up front in the shape of Liverpool's exciting talent Craig Lindfield on loan for the rest of the season.
Are set to capture the signatures of Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson of Hibernian for a combined fee of £6m, as part of the deal Hibs will recieve Celtic's Stephen Pearson and Derek Riordan on loan for the remainder of the season. The Hibees duo were seen attending Celtic's Champions League 'battle of Britain' clash against English giants Manchester United accompanied by their new agent Willie McKay, who is a regular attender at Celtic Park and is a close friend of Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell.
Celtic will also move to sign young star Anthony Stokes from Arsenal in the January window, Peter Lawwell has contacted Liam Brady and a deal is set to be struck. Stokes has already stated his ambition to play for the Parkhead outfit when earlier in the month he said "I would love to play for Celtic, they are a great club and I have supported and followed them all my life."
Celtic are also monotoring Stephen Naismith of Kilmarnock and will pounce to secure the youngster, who was a Celtic season ticket holder as a kid should Shaun Maloney decide to move on.West Ham are to keep faith in Mascherano and Tevez although there is a chance that Mascherano may go to Juventus on loan for the rest of the season. One of Tevez, Cole, Sheringham, Harewood or Zamora will leave on loan until the end of the season with Pardew having 6 good strikers. Shaun Wright-Phillips will be signed in January and Kiraly will return to Palace and the most regular startin XI will look like this: Green, Pantsil, Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Konchesky, SWP, Benayoun, Reo-Coker, Etherington, Harewood, Ashton
SUBS (from): Caroll, Spector, Mullins, Mascherano, Bowyer, Sheringham, Tevez, Cole, Zamora
Gordon Strachan is preparing a £5 million move for the unsettled Mateja Kezman . Kezman , a close friend of Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink's during their time at PSV has had trouble settling into Turkish football and it is said Fenerbache will accept anything upwards of £5 million.
Also expect former Shakhtar captain ,Anatoliy Tymoshchuk to sign on a pre-contractual agreement as a replacement for Neil Lennon.Arsenal will not be buying anyone in January - that is a fact. That means there will be no Franck Ribery, no Micah Richards, no Gianluigi Buffon. Why people constantly link Arsene Wenger with players in the winter transfer market I don't know - he's said he's not signing anyone. He's also ruled out a move for Watford winger Ashley Young in the new year, but I have it on good authority that the England under 21 midfielder will move to the Emirates next summer. Marseille winger Franck Ribery will snub a move to Arsenal in favour of Lyon, and Wenger will look to add another wide player to his squad, so a move for Young is extremely likely. Theo Walcott will be transformed into a striker over the next six months or so, which would leave a gap in the midfield and Young would fill that gap suitably.
