Hey ed, any Southampton rumours apart from Chamberlain? {ed's note - nothing new since the last time I posted about them.}(3)(1)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:46:20
Since Alex Chamberlain is from portsmouth and has been at southampton since he was a boy i doubt he's from stoke. And his dad a former portsmouth player and coach already said he lost his job to keep Alex at saints its likely hes not persuading him to go his unlikely season ticket holder family in stoke(4)(2)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:51:08
Billy Davies to be announced pne boss on tues or wed before the forest game on Saturday he will get a little bit to spend but nothin drastic his 1st decision will be to recall mellor and Nolan. He will sell players to get extra cash and will have full control in who he buys. He will also try and get Aaron Ramsey who's loan expires soon. That transfer depends on denilson leavin arsenal(8)(15)

ED have you any solid news on Wigan btw? {ed's note - nothing, I don't believe N'Zogbia is likely to join Liverpool though, I hear Sunderland are the only firm interest you have received.}(3)(8)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:24:06
No chance. Will Hoskins is not leaving Bristol Rovers for Swindon Town. He wants to progress his career, not remain in League One.

A move to the Championship cannot be ruled out if a suitable bid comes in, although a derisory 300k offer from Scunhorpe was laughed at by the board.(4)(1)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:25:50
Preston manger to be comfirmed monday(8)(4)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:28:10
Woodgate to return to Leeds back on loan as he seeks a return to match fitness(11)(5)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:30:04
Ed: can you tell me what you have heard about qpr please i know we are after 1 or 2 bot who are they if you know cheers {ed's note - I don't, I am not sure if Neil Warnock knows himself what is happening right now. Your owners are already looking to buy for the Prem, I know that much, I expect a very interesting window for you.}(2)(1)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:30:20
Swindon's Charlie Austin to leave for no more than 2 million. Hope he stays but that's an offer we can't reject. Danny Wilson will be gone if we don't win in the next few weeks. Most likely to be Trollope replacing him as him being a Swindon Fan but i would take him if he brings along Will Hoskins.

Pericard and Obrien to leave and a decent striker and an experienced centre back to come in, some one like Elliott Benyon who isbanging in the goals in league 2 and maybe andy frampton on perm :)(1)(1)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:32:23
Right to all the deluded fans of blackpool, everton , newcastle and especially forrest. There is no way you will get Adam Hamill for 500k. The only team that can get him for that price is Liverpool that is is the contract the rest of you will have to cough up 2 million.(4)(1)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:36:43
David Wheater and Gary O'Neil both look set to be on the way to the Potteries in a combined £3million deal. O'Neil deal is dependent on whether Anthony Annan is signed or not. If Annan signs then Wheater will still be a target. Pulis collects defenders and if Faye does indeed go to Galatasary, Celtic or Wolves then a replacement would be urgently needed for backup. That is what Wheater would be backup.

 02 Jan 2011 21:52:41
Ed - any more rumours about Ipswich I may not have heard of? And what do you think about the familiar names of Wickham, Lallana, Chamberlain, Hoolahan, Carroll etc? {ed's note - I don't have much on Ipswich, all the rumours seem to concern Wickham. Spurs fans are convinced he is about to join them, but I doubt he will go in January myself. Carroll is highly unlikely to leave Newcastle any time soon, even without his injury. Lallana and Chamberlain are being looked at by Prem teams, both are likely to make that step up soon.}(1)(2)

 

 02 Jan 2011 21:54:34
Paul Trollope to become new Swindon manager and is going to try and take Will Hoskins with him.source?(4)(4)

 

 02 Jan 2011 21:56:26
Christiano Ronaldo to return to Manchester next season but not with united!(9)(31)

 

 02 Jan 2011 21:58:10
Arsene Wenger wants an expereiced commanding center back who is cheap. Less then 10 million. However he probably won't sign anyone. If they do sign somebody Richard Dunne and Per Merthersacher.

Alan Pardew wants a striker and winger. David Beckham is a small possibility however if totenham sign david beckham newcastle will sign Bentley. 75 percent possibility. 80 percent possibility is Robbie Keane Dont know if its a loan or transfer. One more possibility is Yannik Djalo for 3.5 mil. What do you think ed.
The luxemburger {ed's note - I think Bentley is the most likely signing, with Routledge being hawked around for a move away.}(8)(2)

 

 02 Jan 2011 21:58:51
Tyrone mears david wheater 4 combined 4.5 million to stoke shawcross on way out for bargain 20 million(3)(5)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:02:56
If Kenny Miller is after 20k a week, then he won't be joining Blackpool, If he accepted 10k and a nice
bonus for staying up, then this rumour could become
reality(7)(1)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:03:55
Re Any Everton News and David Moyes position.

A situation has been rumbling on over the past 12 months.
Kenwright has been Moyes defender to the rest of the board in the face of continued criticism but even BK now realises that things need to change. I just don't believe that Kenwright is begging Moyes to stay, this is not the situation as I understand it.
West Ham was a watershed game, a team in the relegation zone for most of the season, the manager on borrowed time and DM selects a 4-6-0 formation and brings Beckford on in injury time!
The Anichiebe substitution at Stoke resulted in a major post match fall out. The player is a centre forward yet DM persists with playing him on the right wing and in this instantance moving our most potent outlet in this game, Coleman, to right back in order to accomodate the change. Nevilles reaction to being subbed spoke volumes.
Goodison is not a happy camp at present, it is no coincidence that so many players are out of form at the same time, and no way is Heitinga injured. Another issue surounds the position of Alan Stubbs, a Moyes appointment but almost from day one frozen out of the role that he was hired for.
SAF offered 18m (fact) for Rodwell, who once again couldnt get a run out for Everton.
A lot has been made of the fact that money is not available to Moyes and people have picked up this comment and run with it. . however the truth is that whilst the club is not awash with money, funds are available, but DM has found no one to spend it on.
Everton are changing manager, it is a question of when. I believe it will be sooner rather than later with managers such as O'Neill, Alladyce, Houghton and even Benitez all available at present
Incidentally, one of the funniest comments that I heard on the current Everton situation was Peter Reids assessment of the David Moyes reign. .unprintable on this site! {ed's note - your assessment sounds more likely than the story I heard, apart from the funds being available bit.}(1)(4)

 

 02 Jan 2011 22:04:09

ROBBIE KEANE
is due at wolves for talks tomorrow. heard it from a very reliable source. it seems it will be an initial loan deal.

also heard from the same source that WOODGATE will join but only a 3 month loan deal as redknapp thinks he may need him back near the end of the season.

also McCarthy is not interested in lalana as he has said there are alot bettter players in our youth side to step up to th first team rather than spend money on a player that would struggle to get in the first team

shauno {ed's note - can Woodgate play for Spurs this season? He wasn't registered in their initial squad at the start of the season is he likely to be registered in January?}(4)(16)

Also ED do you know any Newcastle rumours as i can't get on to SSN? {ed's note - Comolli was there to watch Tiote I was told, Hodgson was there for Five Live as a summariser apparently. SAF was there to watch Cleverley ostensibly, but I would be surprised if he wasn't checking Tiote out too. I haven't heard much about Newcastle other than an offer for Hammill and I don't know that I believe that rumour as it said you offered Routledge in a swap. Oh and Smith wants to play or be allowed to leave.}(3)(1)

Any body Heard any EVERTON news please. . . .ED you heard anything please? {ed's note - just that no one is coming unless you sell to raise funds, but you are not getting any offers worth considering. Moyes is considering his position as well is another rumour, but I can't get hold of the person I know who could verify that one so I don't know how much truth there is in it.}

Cheers ED - the dreaded news if thought. . .hope moyes stays i feel he's stablised the club & there playing slightly better football with spending very very little in 7 + yrs. Wouldn't blame him he if goes thou. . Thoughts on a replacement if he did leave? {ed's note - what I was told is that Kenwright has all but got down on his knees to beg him to stay, but he just thinks he has taken you as far as he can. Do you think it likely then? I just thought it was a Liverpool fan on a wind up, though he does have Everton connections, it just seemed so unlikely. I wouldn't have a clue who you would get to replace him if it is true, more than likely another lower league manager working miracles on a shoestring though. Gus Poyet or Sean O'Driscoll would stand out for me as options, I would love to see an O'Driscoll side in the Prem. His teams are like Blackpool - they just go out and attack from start to finish, you can never

ED, i think it could well be likely. If i was moyes i would surely be well pi ed with virtually no oney every season, he could only spend £900.000, this season on a kid (Guyene Spelling sorry). But i hope not. Thanks for your updates ED {ed's note - you're welcome mate.}(0)(1)

After today's game Houllier has realised that villa don't need a new keeper this window.

Villa are very keen to bring in samba from blackburn.
Houllier is also desperate to get jean makoun in to strengthen the midfield.
sessegon is a possibility as well for villa. houllier wants a player with flair and creativity to add quality but to also push players like downing, albrighton and young.

houllier wants to get in a striker. macheda on loan looks most likely.

houllier might also move for romeu, a young barcelona player.
he will be cheap but houllier will use him next season. that might or might not happen.

going out of villa are carew, beye, sidwell and ireland. Davies will probably stay out on loan because houllier might call him back because he is not sure about james collins.

villa will do a fair bit of dealings this month(8)(4)

Any body Heard any EVERTON news please. . . .ED you heard anything please?? ? {ed's note - just that no one is coming unless you sell to raise funds, but you are not getting any offers worth considering.

Any cardiff rumours ed? especially regarding dave jones {ed's note - the only rumours I have heard are saying Jones is not getting any money to spend in January.

Ed can you back me uP with any of this just got a text from a mate who works for the daily record not a writer though! He says the Scott McDonald deal fell by the way side due to a disagreement with Mowbray and Lennon but hooper is being shipped out to Swansea samaras to Newcastle and the mist important park wee skippy back from boro! There has been so much talk up here of him coming back surely no smoke without fore?! Or is it just wishful thinking !? {ed's note - I did hear that a move for McDonald fell through, but not why sorry. But he was being brought in to partner Hooper, the only rumours of him going were the joke one that was put up on here earlier. I have heard no others at all of Hooper leaving, I very much doubt there is anything other than a wind up in it. Samaras is being shopped around and only Newcastle have shown any interest in England, but there was supposed to be interest from Germany in him. Though that could be agent talk to get him a move.}(1)(9)

Yeah mate you are right Adam lallana is probably in Russia preparing for his match TOMORROW in dagenham. .(re: Adam lallana is known to be away and uncontactable) also re LAmbert CHambo LAllana they are going to stay. .all have had the opportunity to leave throughout the years but remain loyal. . Wolves will not sign lallana as they probe can't afford him, his wages etc plus with either saints wolves or Norwich he will end up in the champ next season. lamb Is likely to go to Newcastle where he will walk in to the team as the only target man. . Wake up! Carrol is a bit better. Finally lambert and or fonts are the players that pardew fell out with at Southampton so not likely to follow him to Newcastle. (ps:ed any news on the Antonio situation.do you reckon him and Austin will be saints come feb?) {ed's note - first off I agree on Fonte, everything I am hearing is saying he is happy and going nowhere, in fact he is recommending Southampton to other players. Antonio, is that the lad from Reading you had on loan? If so he has been given a new contract, he would only be joining on another loan move. Austin is not looking likely to join Southampton either, sorry. Premier League and Championship clubs are interested, though, if Lambert does go to Newcastle as expected, you will be able to offer more chance of first team football.}(6)(6)

'Why are football fans so determined that their fave players will never leave contrary to proven evidence?'

And where is the proven evidence to say that both Russel Martin and Holt will be leaving Norwich then?

Both Paul Lambert and David Mcnally have confirmed that none of the stars are leaving the club. Lambert is a popular figure at Norwich and he knows that Holt and Martin are fans favourite's so he would do nothing to jepodise our views of him. He has the last say on any transfer offers for any of the players.

Stop bull-crapping about it all, and stop acting like you know it all.(13)(7)

"Notts forest who still have high hopes of getting promoted will sign adam hammill 500k and kris commons free and david wheater 1.5m"

Wheater and Hammill will sign for Premiership clubs only, certainly not Notts Forest, who will perhaps only sign one or two players on loan this Jan.

Forest's transfer committee will again thwart the unpopular Davies from wasting the club's money in the transfer market.

Leon Best is a possible loan target and Best would be keen on a move to Nottingham but a number of other clubs are interested in Leon as well giving him choice.

Forest will have another quiet transfer window and may be more concerned with Davies leaving to be manager elsewhere(14)(11)

Not so long ago, a lot of Everton fans wanted the rumours to stop about Rooney joining Man Utd but wanting to stop the rumours didn't alter the facts.

Robbie Keane

The chase hots up with at least a dozen clubs registering an interest

No matter what Harry "I always tell the truth to the media" Redknapp says, a loan deal is possible, although a permanent deal with Newcastle is currently the most likely.

Wolves would be an emotional choice for Robbie but unlikely given Wolves' relegation battle.

WBA, Leicester, Sunderland and Birmingham have all bid but been turned down by the player.

A loan deal with Villa also plausible but Newcastle remain in pole position(17)(14)

At least stupid farmers can spell 'our' and i believe Surman plays for Norwich now. . moved on to bigger and better? half empty stadiums and route 1 football in League 1 is now way to waste a career Lallana is begging Lambert to sign him to play back up for Wes Hoolahan

All these rumours about Lambert and Lallana are just pathetic, especially the ones about wolves. Southampton are a club that are on the up and want to get back to the premier league.

Carrolll may move (as I claimed earlier) to Spurs with Keane joining Toon on loan but Pardew may drop his interest in Beckham (allowing Becks to join Spurs) in order to persuade Redknapp to allow David Bentley to move to Newcastle.

Possible that Newcastle might try a double signing of Keane and Bentley without selling Carroll.

Is Traore a replacement for Carroll?(22)(15)

Lallana will not pass up the chance to move to a club like Wolves or any other of the clubs who want him. Wolves can pay Lallana at least 5 times the amount he is earning at Southampton.

I agree that players of their quality will attract attention and chamberlain could be on his way but the players themselves have said they are happy at southampton. lambert will stay and lallana will wait until the end of the season to see where saints are. but the rubbish about wolves is ridiculous. first of all lallana could have joined you at the start of last season and didn't and wolves are not rich unlike saints. we have the 5th richest owners in england so we could offer him more than you. Anyway you're bottom of the league, we will see you next season.(8)(11)

Nigel Adkins "We are not looking to sell" which means a player will have to request a transfer to leave Southampton.

All players are currently happy with the manager and the form.

Saints are now in 2nd place in League 1, just 6 points behind Brighton (who are doing very well).

When asked about Adam Lallana and his contract situation Nigel Adkins has said " We are working PRIVATLEY behind the scenes with Adam negotiating a new contract"

There is no doubt Adam Lallana, Jose Fonte, Rickie Lambert and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain will attarct interest in January but Fonte signed a 3 1/ 2 year deal this time last year, Chamberlain on recently signed a pro contract with his club that he supports, Lambert is out of contract next summer, Lallana is the only one who can move realistically, as he is out of contract but Southampton is his club, the fans love him, he's playing well and although Wolves etc could pay him more would he get a game? Not as much as he would at Saints. Southampton have the finances to pay Lallana a good salary at a club where he enjoys playing football.

We will just have to wait and see!(10)(3)

Re: QPR

"Wolves can pay Adam lallana 5 times more then Southampton could? lol are you kidding saints are in the top 5 richest clubs in England are owners are billionaires I think we could offer him alot more money then you could, your a small club who will et relegated yes there will obviously be offers but het it into your little brains Southampton don't need to raise cash from players it's been stated many times interest is welcomed r just goes to show how well we are doing but we don't need to sell and don't want to you want these players your talking big money to prize them away for instance Adam lallana is homegrown and even if we lose him at the end of the season when his contract runs out a tribunal would decide how much because he won't go for free due to his age. I'm a realistic saints fan these players might go but I'm telling you it will take alot of cash for us to let them go clubs try and put huge sums of money on players because saints have the cash to splash. Guess what we can also play hardball cortese is a fantastic chairman I mean we bought chaplow for a steal £50,000 for a centre mid who has made Hammond and schniederlin step up a gear bargain saints are a club on the rise when players like fonte lambert etc joined they knew are aims and want to help us get there so I will state for one last time

If you want them prepare to pay over the odds for them ) "

In the real world (and I am not a Wolves fan btw merely reporting known activity), Wolves can afford to pay Lallana 10 times what Southampton pay because Soton's owners sensibly have a wage structure they won't break.

Anyway, the facts are that Lallana and Lambert themselves will decide whether or not they move and neither player will turn down the chance to play in the Premiership NOW on Premiership wages with a Premiership signing on fee.

Lallana and Lambert will attract bids this January and it looks likely they will move on.(8)(8)

The regime that ran Southampton when Leon Best last played there HAS GONE. So there is no obstacle to Best going back to Southampton.

Leon Best is being touted around to a number of clubs and Southampton are one of them, especially as a part-exchange.

When will football fans learn? Few players say they want to leave a football club. They kiss the badge and profess loyalty whilst all the time, they and their agents work to secure a big pay day and a move elsewhere.

Face the facts: talented players like Lallana and Lambert and Chamberlain will always attract attention. And there will be bids for Lallana and Lambert during January. Lallana will not pass up the chance to move to a club like Wolves or any other of the clubs who want him. Wolves can pay Lallana at least 5 times the amount he is earning at Southampton.

Southampton may use the £3 million or so they get for Lambert and Lallana to move for Austin.

To the naive and gullible

"For the person who said lambert and lallana 2 leave saints just shut-up lallana has commited his future 2 the club and cortese and adkins have said no one is being sold same with lambert. And anyone who says chamberlain is going stop saying it because he signed a new contract plus his father marc said hes staying and also cortese and adkins said hes not going"

Signing contracts and managers saying a player is going nowhere and a player's daddy saying something are all meaningless drivel.

Lallana and Lambert are attracting attention I am not so sure about Chamberlain. Lallana is a target for a number of clubs and WILL be the subject for bids during January.(12)(6)

No matter what some deluded Southampton fans think, Lallana and Lambert ARE being tracked by a few Championship and Premier teams. Highly likely that a move will be made for one or both of them during January. Southampton may not need the money but players decide moves nowadays, not clubs or managers (or fans! ). Wolves lead the chase for Lallana, with another Midlands club and Celtic also keen. A fee for Lallana of £1.5 million has been muted - again probably half up front, with the rest in add-ons.
Newcastle want Lambert and a similar fee is likely - Newcastle might offer Leon Best as a makeweight in the deal but Best is unlikely to want to drop down to League One.


Southa
Pton would not want Leon bet back neither Adam lallana may leave for a premiership team but he will not go to wolves he's good friends with former wolves player Andrew surman who left Southampton during the dark days and is a prime example of why a player like lallana with so much potential just like surman had back the. Shouldn't join a team which more the. Likely will get relegated to the championship next season anyway and will just end up playing against his old team which is no way a step up Adam lallana has interest from other teams and would never go to wolves I would bet money on lallana signing a 3 year contract at saints if not he would more likely go spurs not some basement club like wolves as for lambert he might end up at Newcastle f he wants to leave but he's stated he's happy hear and saints wouldn't let him go inless he really wants to saints will soon be back where they belong in the prem we have a fantastic chairman with great vision who isn't a mug and is held to ransom by none you want lallana oxlade-chamberlain or lambert your have to pay alot for them alot more the. I bet your willing to pay(5)(12)

Well worked out. But both players have said in interviews that they are happy at Southampton and want to do there best for the club. So yh the players choose if they want to go but neither of them do.
