Lee Barnard won't be leaving Southampton for another club - be it Leeds or West Ham - as he has just had surgery on an ankle injury and could be out for 3 months - and coming up after that he had a court case which might end up in a prison sentence. So we might take £600K for him - but I'm not sure you'd want him.

Game not up at Crawley, they will not sell any top players in January and will finish in the top 3 easily, I I know the owner and all she said today was they need to increase attendances which they will do.

Come on watford fans, i thought we covered this. Firstly, you should never stop aspiring. Lastly, millwall and ipswich fans enjoy the banter with each other. It is all opinions. Your statistics are boring and unwelcome.

In January Watford will look to sell:

Ross Jenkins
Josh Walker
Joe Garner

They will also opt not to extend the loan of Craig Beattie, and youth players such as Adam Thompson, Piero Mingoia and Sean Murray will be loaned out.

They will extend the loans of Michael Kightly and Nyron Nosworthy for the full season and will attempt to get the following in:
Jason Roberts
Akos Buszaky (loan)
Simon Cox (loan)

Believable0 Unbelievable2

Rangers have not been linked officialy to any of them.Celtic have been linked to Rhodes.He has half a dozen EPL teams in for him.So they will not get him.I hope so as I am a Rangers fan.What is the chances of Blackpool signing any more players for the SFL in Scotland,like Bob Harris who was with QOS?It is about your level of ambition.Ally

Southampton are by far the best team in the league; they, like West Ham. have had a dip in form in recent weeks however an automatic promotion is on the cards. I just want the Hammers to beat them at Upton Park as they beat as at there ground.

21 Dec 2011 13:27:09
Think West Ham will hold on to their players and will end up promoted but think Southampton will fade and not secure an automatic place.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

We'll sign players in January to ensure that's not the case. In Adkins we trust

Haha lol. that is hilarious. why would they go to a smaller team that are overachieving, rather than stay at a bigger team that are under achieving? i think ipswich will lose players, but andrews is on loan and wanted by prem clubs, bullard is happy getting paid 25k a week which millwall cant afford and chopra has a 250k loan with the club as we have just paid off his gambling debts. dont reckon he'll be going soon! if any of them leave it will be to promotion candidates or lower prem teams...

HAHA! You are even more hilarious for believing it and getting wound up by it.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

I think you both need to learn the definition of Hilarious personally. It's not even amusing, let alone hilarious.

With JT being charged and the FA no doubt bringing in a game ban, Gary Cahill will be arriving at Stamford Bridge.

Sources close to Rodwell have said he would be interested in a move to Chelsea and will speak to David Moyes.

AC Milan are trying to get Torres on loan, and with Drogba on duty in Africa Nation's it will leave AVB short up front. So a surprise move for Tevez could happen although Man City will be reluctant to sell to Chelsea.

Juve want Alex which could see Milos Krasic moving the other way.

I m not a Blackburn fan but can I suggest that rather than spend your hard earned and then demonstrate ,why not boycott the game and hit clubs where it hurts i,e in the pocket.I understand that it is difficult when you support and have feelings for the club but to an outsider it looks like like your protests,which appear to have been going on for some time,are not being listened to.Good Luck

why do Southampton fans think they are going to sign loads of good players like zamora and adomah, if they were going to leave their clubs they would be going to premier league sides, not southampton, can you just be realistic.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Let us enjoy the moment, and please remember this is a rumour and banter site old chap.....COYRs

21 Dec 2011 08:52:24
Surely now that suarez has been given an 8 match ban we should see the best of Andy Carroll, although if we don't we will definately get rid of him and bring in a new striker for Liverpool

Not strictly a rumour, but to any Southampton fans, would anyone else like to see Tim Sparv back? I for one would happily have him back.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

No - he had his time in the youth set up...Saints now only look forward, not back......COYRs

Agree0 Disagree1

I'd like him, he's become a good player in Holland. He's highly rated and a full international. He would be a great addition.

Steve Keane is one of the best managers in the world, i cant believe the attitude of the so called fans at this club you are a disgrace. You deserve to and I hope that you go down as you wont come up and will certainly be another Portsmouth, you owners didn?ǨѢt even know that you could be relegated when they bought the club you are going to be ruined and as you the fans have shown you will spit your dummies out and walk away enjoy having no football team haha

Keane has picked up 32points in a year split season with man u /liverpool away could be well be in trouble now regardless of whether he stays or go,s

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not one of the best managers in the world. He's not even in the top 19 in the premiership, just like the club currently.
