Rangers are looking to bring in Graeme Souness as director of football. PLG has failed to adapt to Scottish football or the pressure associated with life in the Old Firm, so David Murray has turned to his old friend Souness to ease the burden. PLG is far from happy about this but knows that he is in no position to argue.Man Utd will spend big on 2players in Jan. Other than that none of the big 4 will do anything that can be seen as exciting.

Bomer Brown is also in consideration after the gaffer realised he needs more experience. Having no money to spend, Le Guen is also interested in free transfer Craig Brewster or even bring back fans favourite big Duncan Ferguson.
BOONDOCKRangers vs Newcastle. Boring. Rumour has it that this is a rumour page not a rant and idiot calling page. If in doubt have a look at the UEFA ranking and then get back to the rumours that we enjoy. Like:
Liverpool to cash in on Alonso in the summer with several bids from back in Spain, all the usual suspects. Expect large monies and expect Barca to step up and offer Edmilson in the deal. Garcia may also go with the only thing keeping him at Anfield is his European match winners but in the league he just doesn't cut it. Time to cash in? Also a large offer for Gabriel Milito. With Zaragoza makin a bid for CL position its gonna take crazy money.Dhorasso is on the brink of signing for Big Sam's Bolton Wanderers.

Alternatively, he's on route to Old Trafford for £5.5m?Gerrard will not be leaving Liverpool but Benitez will. Gerrard is seen as the heartbeat of the team by the board of directors and while Benitez has won the Champions League and FA Cup he has failed to do well in Premiership.

Watch this spaceAs aliadiere has said more or less he wants 2 leave AFC expect him 2 leave in January . And as walcott is used as a winger expect AFC 2 buy a striker could be joe cole .And expect a keeper if alumnia or poom leaves AFC in january as both are fed up with not being used by AFC .Paul Le Guen was given at least 10-15 M to spend in the summer, he spent about 3M, leaving the rest for next summer once we qualify for the Chanpions League, that is when the real Revolution will begin.NUFC Rumours
Expect Freddy to axe Roeder before Xmas. New manager will be british and will be chosen quickly so he can buy in January. Don't expect big money signings because we are running out of money. New man will bring in 2 strikers, Nugent 5m and Klose 10m. Also expect Robert to resign for the toon, which will mean that N'Zog will leave because of too many left midfielders. The ongoing search for a striker will leave us with no money to spend on a top defender, which we need the most. Bramble to go to the Championship and hopefully never comes back.Barcelona will either offer £18 million for Joe Cole or offer a swap deal with Deco going the other way. Watch out for this, it will be the biggest transfer of next summer!
=v1=Arsenal will make signings, but only youngsters. These are Barusso, Ogbuke and Esteban. They will attempt to buy Huntelaar in the summer.Due to a co-operation agreement between United and Sporting, the Red Devils already have first refusal on Nani and look set to use it to their advantage. The deal looks likely to go through in January with the distinct possibility of Nani staying at Sporting until the end of the season. However it seems United face a battle on their hands with Sporting Lisbon president saying that Nani was not for sale, unless the Old Trafford giants forked out a considerable fee for his transfer, thought to be around £8-12m pounds.Joao Moutinho has attarcted the interest of a number of clubs. His 20million Euro buy out clause has alerted Man Utd, Barca, Madrid and Valencia.Wigan want to sign England midfielder Jermain Jenas next summer. Paul Jewell is preparing an audicious Loan move for the Tottenham star with a view to a £6 million permanent move. West Ham are also keen to take the midfielder to their club.
=v1=Everton youngster and rising star, Scott Spencer will head out on loan in January with Dennis Wise interested in taking him to Leeds United. Wise may make a surprise move and sell David Healy for around £4 million with Everton surprise suiters unless they snap up David Nugent from Preston.
=v1=Curtis Davies will make a move to either Tottenham, Arsenal or Liverpool. West Brom skipper Davies who is a tough centre back is a Man U fan and wants to play for the club but Ferguson is reluctant to offer him a deal. Davies will definitely be on the move next summer.
=v1=Tim Cahill will have the opportunity to leave Everton in the summer with Arsenal set to offer him a deal after sending Baptista back to Spain, and Inter Milan will offer him a mega deal. Both offers will be in the region of £12.5 million! Man U may be a surprise suitor and come in with a last minute bid. There is a 25% chance he will stay at Everton.
=v1=Robbie Keane will make a surprise £5 million move to Aston Villa in January. Martin O'Neil will also get his hands on £4 million winger, James Milner from Newcastle and 31 year old Celtic defender, Bobo Balde who could cost up to £1 million. The first 2 transfers are definite whilst the chance of a Balde transfer is only 20%. Before it was thought that Defoe would be heading for Villa Park but it was mistaken and instead his team mate Keane will be playing there from January onwards.
=v1=Rafa Benitez is to sell Sanz Luis Garcia in the summer and sign Klaas Jan Huntelaar for £10.5 million.
=v1=Lyon want to sign Djibril Cisse from Liverpool when he returns from his Marseille loan spell. Gerard Houlier would be willing to pay up to £7 million for the player he paid £14 million for 3 years ago if he returns to form in France.
=v1=Celtic are interested in Lokomotiv Moscows Garry O'Connor.
