Arsene knows Liverpool tried to get a first option arrangement for Samir Nasri but failed.That is why Marseille paid £6.9 million for Cisse.
It is thought that Arsenal are about to make a massive offer for Micah Richards and Michael Johnson (Manchester City)? How much the offer is for or if it will be excepted no one knows.
It is also being reported in Spain that Robinho (Real Madrid) has signed a pre–contract to come to Arsenal in January? When asked Robinho said "that he could not talk about it". Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb) has told Dinamo to accept Arsenal's offer as he wants to leave in January.
Arsenal are now favorites to sign Nigerian starlets Macauley Chrisantus and Rabiu Ibrahim ahead of Liverpool, Ajax, Man United and both Milan clubs.
The football merrygoround. Mourinho to get head coach job at Nou Camp, as Rijkaard is fast becoming disillusioned with FC Barcelona board. Benitez is upsetting the American owners, ater paying £26 million for Torres, only to see him sitting on the bench, and Liverpool losing winnable points at Pompey, and Birmingham. if Liverpool do not win title this season expect Benitez to be moved on, and Rijkaard to to take the reins at Anfield, as he fancies managing in the Premier League, and the Americans are great admirers of his attacking style football. do not forget you heard it hear first.
To the Millwall fan that said Danny Sturridge going to Millwall, he is currently on crutches having had an operation and is out until new year.
Also to the Chelsea fan that gave his line–up prediction after all the big names leaving. do not you think it gives the oppo an unfair advantage when you only start the game with TEN men not 11.
Now to Rumours. Sven will finally land his man and sign Bresciano, then add Bridge, then make a top forward/goal poacher a priority, with Crouch, Adriano, Vagner Love some of the names being mentioned. Finally, Micah Richards will sign his new contract making him Citys highest paid player over the coming years, putting an end to ridiculous speculation coming from the wishful thinking of United and Liverpool fans. Micah has stated himself that just about the only team he would play for is Arsenal, and with his price–tag around the £25 milion+ and rising, is beyond what Arsene Wenger could/would pay for any player.
Afc Bulletin >
Expect a record offer by Chelsea 4 Fabregas although it will probaly be refused as Arsenal do not need the money. Possable shock move by Arsenal 4 Manchester City player Micheal Johnson, Artur Boruc will not be moving to Arsenal as Arsene Wenger made a move 4 him and Celtic's price was 2 high and Arsene Wenger is known 4 getting bargins and turning them in2 world class players RVP, Toure, are good examples.
Reports of a bust up between Warsaw manager Richard Money and chairman Jeff Bonser could see the manager sacked.
Money wanted money, excuse the pun, to sign a player on loan but Bonser refused. Apparently Bonser is not happy with Money's signing record with Weston, Sonner, Hall and Mooney all signed by Money in the Summer. The foreign players Mawete and Sonko were recommended by director of football Paul Taylor, bar Carlos Carneiro who DD had been after for a considerable length of time.
Bonser has apparently lost faith in Money's ability to judge new signings and is only prepared to fund players found by Taylor who has a better signing record than Money. Been told that if Money does not walk, he only has three games to save his job anyway. Could be sacked after Huddersfield home if Walsall are still bottom after that. But Money might walk out first.
Apparently Martin Allen could be approached as he has proven success at League One level and is good at getting the best out of players.
Andrew Johnson is said to be homesick and Arsenal Totteham and Westham are all looking to take him home and are all willing to pay up to £15 million all clubs are said to want to offer Everton a foward in exchange for aj for a smaller price of £8 million to £10 million plus:
Arsenal: Nicolas Bendter
Tottenham: Jermain Defoe/Darren Bent
Westham: Bobby Zamora
Although Mr Wenger has been given 70 Million to spend do not expect any massive signings. He may look at signing a winger (modric or Robinho). But only If Walcott and Eboue struggle to cover for Hleb and Rosicky. There will be no other signings as he wants to give Djouru and Bendtner a chance.
This the reason the board have said there is so much money availble because they know Wenger will not spend it
–= Man United= –
To the Person who keeps saying that Man. United are going to sell Tevez, Do not Be silly, why would they spend all Summer tryin to buy him, and then let him go after a few months.
I think United need a new forward similar to Saha, and I think Sir Alex will find his man in young Brazilian wizz kid Vagner Love, who currently plays for CSKA Moscow and would be easily attained for aroun £10 million.
I also think that Sir Alex will bring in Micah Richards for around £25 million.
Just because Wenger has been given £70 million to spend it does not mean he will use it all. The only signing in January will be Modric from Croatia team Zagreb for £10 mill
Millwall news: heard on good authority that donachies replacement is being lined up,. no one knows who yet, but. also a kid called sturridge from Manchester City, arrives before Swindon game.

This will allow Everton to complete the signings of Andy Todd (£2 million) and Damien Johnson (£3 million). Also heading to Goodison are Diego and Stewart Downing for 11 an £7 million pounds respectively.
Liverpool to sign Defoe £15 million and Quaresma £18 million in January
Kevin Blackwell has funds to sign several loan players to save Luton's season. To help the striking crisis Leo Fortune West will join, Richard Lee will join as an emergency keeper and Zoltan Steiber will sign on loan from Aston Villa.
