anyway i here
Chivu to Chelsea
Huntelaar to MAN U
Lucas Neill to Liverpool
Foster on loan to SunderlandSeveral things to clear up here: 1. Hleb will NEVER play in Scotland. Either Premeirship or back to Germany where several teams are interested including Kaiserslaughtern (sp?) and Bayern. 2. Hargreaves CAN'T leave Germany because of a crazy tax system. Bayern would have to give up roughly 35% of the signing bonus. Meaning that the difference of what would be a fair price to them would have to be increased by ManU to a point where the signing isn't worth it. Next year, the taxes are eased slightly and may facilitate a move. 3. Torres WILL go to ManU. He will be a crowd favorite for about 2 months until the fans see that he isn't capable of handling the physical game in England. 4. Donavan WON'T make a top 10 Premeirship team and will be useless if he plays anywhere in the Premeirship (see Torres above and also his World Cup performance). 5. Adu going back to the USA is not because he can't handle the physical aspect. It's because he has no touch and his awareness is not acute enough for the English game yet. Try again in 2-3 years. 6. Defoe will NEVER be a red, ever. Rafa doesn't rate him and has stated he has no idea why these rumours persist. Look at history folks, Rafa always says who he's after, and eventually gets him (see Bellamy, Kuyt, Alonso, Garcia, Gonzo, Zenden, etc). 7. Huntelaar is a young hero at Ajax and will stay there at least until Summer. At that time, he'll make it to a top 4 club (not Chelsea because they have no interest) 8. There hasn't been a cogent post from an Arsenal fan in some time. Henry is at times the goat and at times the cheated. Face it, the problem is not with Henry, it's with the management. Maybe the new stadium ereally IS cursed. 9. IF Klose goes anywhere it will be Barca or LFC. Those are the only teams he is interested in that are interested in him. 10. Finnan, Hyypia, Kewell are all staying at LFC simply because they are worth more to the team than the money they'd be ble to get for them.
Expect Sammi to retire as a respected LFC player in 1 1/2 years. 11. Kewell the best player in England? I think our Ausi friend's been bitten by one of the 180 or so different deadly poisonous species in his homeland. 12. As soon as Rafa settles his D, Riise will move up to LMF. Rafa wants him to utilize his heavy shot more and like the idea of an overlapping LWB that can cross and let Risse move insie for rebound shots. That's all folks! Finally. LFC lineup for after summer - cf: Kuyt, Klose/Huntelaar - omf: Gerrard - smf: Riise, Lennon/Alves - dmf: Alonso/Sissoko - lwb: ? - rwb: Neill/Finnan - cb: Carra, Agger/Hyppia - g: CarsonRumours linking van der vaart to liverpool is wrong!

having already completed the shock loan deal for larsson saf looks set to tie up two more deals in january they are nani from sporting lisbon for around 6 million and tim cahill of everton deal likely to involve tim howard and 8 millionCeltic, Everton and Blackburn looking to sign Tomas Sivok from Sparta PragueOld Firm fans on here getting carried away with the fact that both of their teams are in Europe after christmas need to be a bit more realistic.
Rangers - There is no warchest to spend in January, all the money made so far from Europe is covering the pay-offs made to Bernard, Andrews, Malcolm etc at the start of the season. Pandev of Lazio has been linked for £3m+, but will only sign if Boyd is sold to a premiership club for the same amount, which is a possibility as Le Guen doesn't rate him as a team player. The other option is a loan deal for Marouane Chamakh at Bordeaux, who is currently unsettled but prefers a move to the premiership and may go to Man City or Portsmouth.
Alan Smith on loan was a possibility, but Ferguson is unhappy with the treatment of Bardsley who was frozen out after a training ground incident with Buffel so will no longer allow Smith to go to Rangers. Le Guen will give the likes of Sebo, Svensson, Buffel, Novo, Sionko and Papac a full season to prove themselves and so will not look to replace the underperformers just yet. At the moment, the only certaren'ty is that Whittaker of Hibs will be signed for £750k plus Gavin Rae, with possibly Naismith of Kilmarnock arriving for the same amount.
Celtic - around £6m will be available in January following their champions league performance, however they are still shelling out big wages on three of the highest earners at the club - Balde, Thomson and Jarosik who are not playing at the moment and so will not buy big names so as not to break the wage structure. Strachan is reluctant to spend the whole lot on Brown and Thompson from Hibs as both players are unproven on the European stage. Huntelaar is a pipe dream, he would cost £10m+ and can pretty much have his pick of any team in Europe at the moment, why would he go to Celtic and the SPL? Also he is cup-tied and Strachan needs players that are available for Europe. Stokes will sign from Arsenal for £1.5m with Arsenal being given the first option to buy him back at a later date. There will also be a shock move for Everton winger Van Der Meyde, who will arrive on loan with the option to buy for £2m in the summer assuming he can stay fit. Strachan will therefore not spend all his budget and look to spend big next summer to build on their success so far this season.CELTIC NEWS
Celtic are lining up a bid for rivaldo if players leave using their freed upo salaries to pay for it. LAWELL HAS STATED THEY AIM TO SELL SHIRTS AND THIS IS ALSO WHY THEY ARE LOOKING AT THIS DEAL. Also stokes may come to celtic in the summer. arsenal may leave him out on loan while celtic try to come to a deal takin him in the summer. Other signings will include Sharlie Joseph from america and tomas sivok or the ukranian from shakter they have been keen to land. U heard it here first. 100% true!!Newcastle Rumours
If what am told by an insider at SJP is true, then i know the targets for January, I fink it is all their to see that we need a bigger squad, but we won't sign squad players, not Shepherd's style, onli wants to sign first 11 quality. First ov all we are interested in the 2 dutch players from ajax, hunterlaar (CF) and emanuelson(LB) thou i do fink their will be plenty competition for these players. Secondly we wil renew interest in lucas Neill (RB) and Zat knight (CB) of Fulham, 2 players that we tryed for on deadline day in the summer, Lucas Neill is out of contract at the end of season and wud come cheap, althought Liverpool are intrested to, but not to worry as we beat them to the punch for Michael Owen and Nobby Solano ( Money Talks ) ! Zat Knight a defender wif great presence which iz wot we need. Toon Army Stil Marchin on in 4 fronts, 1 cup comin 2 SJP thiz yearNewcastle are willing to consider N'Zogbia moving to Arsenal if the deal involves players. newcastle are looking at BENDTNER MUAMBA LUPOLICeltic FC
are ready to snap up Hamilton Accies Wonderkid Jamie McCarthy for £100k with the added bonus of an extra £100k if he makes 40 appearances for the club before his 20th birthday, the deal will also include a 10% sell-on clause
McCarthy is a Celtic fan which should eliminate the possibility of him going to Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea or Arsenal
Celtic will sign Czech pair Michal Kadlec and Tomas Sivok to further enhance our reputation in the Czech Republic after signing Jarosik whilst we are also tracking the Czech's Lubos Husek and Jiri Koubsky
We will also go for Danish Pair Nicklas Bendtner from Arsenal and Brondby defender Morten Rasmussen
we will also try to sign USA midfielder Shalrie Josephs
we are also interested in Stokes who will 100% sign and Thomson and Brown who we'll sign for £6m
other targets are
Mladen PetrićScott Brown Supports Ranggers AND WIDNY go tae celtic neither will KT p.s sproule 2 gersThere are always people from the polish press at villa park these days and the rumour is Klose is on his way 2 villa in jan
Rafa can see the whole team dipping in quality and perfomances. So, he is thinking that he needs some world class players and some young talent. Benitez has been eyeing a few players and readying funds for the players he is thinking of bidding for in the next one to four years.
M.Richards - 7m
D.Alves/Nelsen - 9.5m/6m
Simao - 10m
Kader Keita - 6m
Shaun Wright-Phillips - 10m
C.Davies - 9m
Huntellar - 9m
Benitez is also looking to offload some squad members that arent doing anything or are disappointing. These will happen within the next 1-2 years.
B.Zenden - 2m
Dudek - 1m
N.El Zhar - loan
C.Lindfield - Loan
Bellamy will find form as will Gonzalez and Pennant. Kewell will recover and stay as he is a class-act. Carson will not be sold and gain a first team place and Reina will be second in line. Prepare for Benitez to bring in a lot of young talent and form a young super squad of 16-18 year olds that will gradually be brought into the first team.Garcia going to join Madrid giving rafa money for Rafa Van Der Vaart and he will also get Ze Roberto who is currently a free agent.The 25m i heard we will be getting from eggert magnusson will be spent on only positions we need to strenghthen.
first of all we will need a new goalkeeper with carroll on his way out. hes replacement will be ANTI NIEMI for 4.5 from fulham. secondly we will need a RB for mears which will be GREG HALFORD for 3m and a CB MATTHEW UPSON 5m. thirdly we will need 2 new RM WRIGHT-PHILLIPS10m & BARNES from Derby 5m CM ALDO DUSCHER 750K LM RICHARDSON free for NRC and up front because zamora & cole look to be on their way out we will bring in EASTWOOD 1M & KEANE 5M UP THE IRONS!!Manu Rumours!
No more Torres+Hargreaves rumours please. We got Larsson as u should know by now and BM will never sell Hargreaves. Nani looks most likely to sign for MU in the region of 12m but maybe a cheeky 17m bid for Ribery will be made as SAF is big admirer. Also Silvestre will be sold to a Spanish club and Pique will not go on loan again and will start getting 1st team opporunities.
MoPaRkAlan Smith was spotted at Bellefield Training ground with David Moyes Thursday afternoon, me thinks it could be a possible loan move. As a close friend to Dave Nugent he tells me he's gonna see out the rest of his contract at Deep Dale before he makes his dream move to Everton. .watch this space!
