As a HTAFC supporter I say 'well done' to Bradford City and their supporters - I felt proud to be a West Yorkshireman but embarassed in comparison to how we're playing - "Bradford City were just delicious, Villa were atrocious".

No Birmingham city players are available for a free transfer, we are not actively seeking to get rid of any player and we will only sell if the offer is right, hence the rejection of forest's joke of a bid for Chris Burke.

You are broke. Pannu is taking all your money. Just be grateful that Forest are the only club offering to buy anyone from you Beggars cannot be choosers

Harry Redknapp at Stansted Airport, on the 18.30 Ryanair flight FR8347 to Porto . Says he will later be flying on to France before he flies back. No rumour as to who he's looking at, just fact as to his movements. How do I know? He made a purchase in one of the retail outlets where he had to show his boarding pass and I work at the airport.

If the spurs link to hooper is true, the hoops should hold out for 9/10 million.

Personally i'd rather hooper went to a club like spurs who can challange than a norwich who will be dragged into a relegation scrap, get him sold this week and a couple of replacements bedded in for the Juventus game.

Charlie Austin and Johnny Russell would do for this bhoy

Leeds United not to spend in this window with Warnock leaving at the end of the season.

Will begin to spend in the summer when they bring in new manager could be any of these (Nigel Adkins, Paulo Di Canio, Roberto Di Matteo, Gus Poyet, with even David O'Leary getting odds!!).

Also rumours are the other reason is GFH's financial backers do not want to spend big until Bates is firmly out of the picture as they do not trust him.

DIame and DIarra on way leaving west ham midfield looking like this: Nolan
Noble Taylor Cole O'Neill Collison Jarvis. Taylor well past his prime, Collison out of his depth and O'Neill incosistent which smacks to me like WHU have serious midfield issues aswell as defence! Couple this with the inability to score goals and I think West Ham could be a good outside bet to get sucked into relegation. As always west ham find the players and sell them on! What happened to the ambition.................RUBBISH

Blackpool would play much better football if they had positive fans behind them. Some fans just stop being positive when they don't win games, Fans, stand by Blackpool and let them do what has to be done. it would help if we have a proper manager who is going to be well comited to the team weather they win or loose. Thanks, Blackpool Fan!

One of the potential investors interested in Swindon Town is Kevin Plank.
He alledgedly owns a sportswear company based in the USA.
Andrew Black only wants to sell the majority of his percentage which means he still will have something to do with the club.
It could be completed by Easter of this year.
Who is Kevin Plank though?

Well after watching Saints destroy a lack lustre Everton in the first half last night and then run out of steam, and hang on for a point, its evident where we need to bring players in. Ramirez lacked full match fitness and with Lallana still side lined we definitely require an attacking midfielder/winger of similar quality, especially if we're goons pay at the tempo that MP likes to do things. De Prado again looked tactically short of a premier league player and Rodriguez never really got going when he replaced him. I feel we also need a quality striker, Jay Rod might be better placed out on loan in championship or helping the u21s out until he had developed further.
For me Morgan Schneiderlin did well but, was cautioned and so easily could've picked up another, energetic but fiercely competitive, we need another CDM to cover him and Cork. Lucas Biglia being mentioned for this role, been on Liverpool and Arsenals radar, apparently on strike unhappy in native Argentina, will MP tempt him and can Cortese orchestrate a move from Anderlecht? Around 8m seems the fee.
Boruc did well last night, and the back four looked steady, Jos Hoiveldt looked again like a championship player at best, often selecting to punt long up field or into touch when possession could've been retained, need Fonte back for sure. Unclear whether we need another centre half as Vegard Forren hasn't been seen yet.
Would be keen to see us try and poach Nathan Redmond from troubled Birmingham, he'd certainly be one for the future.
I hope we can find these players, and the way we went about last nights game should certainly attract potential signings into buying into the dream.
I think there is a real possibility that Cortese is about to make a formal link between Barcelona and Southampton. Initiating feeder status and sharing of loan players. Sounds far fetched but watch this space.
My tips are Villa on loan and Roberto on loan, I think Shaw well be a Barcelona player next season.

The 2 parties who are in discussions over the possibility of taking over at Swindon Town are foreign investors.

My own opinion is that I would prefer to have similar to what we have, than what Man City have that would be soulless, we are a big League 1 club not League 2 like last season, people said we bought the lge, they need to realize that we had double just about everyone's attendances.
