Stoke are set to sign midfielder Jamie Ness of Rangers on a free, pending the inevitable legal battle. Stoke are confident that they are acting within the law, backed up by the Scottish FA, but Rangers will no doubt attempt to combat the move that will see them loosing one of their star young assets with no financial compensation.

What? A whole day and nothing new about Reading?
No one new being linked with Alfie? No more Huddersfield supporters upset about the imminent departure of their leading scorer (I know what you guys say about the club not needing to sell him, but are you in a position where you can offer £30000 a week or stop a player from playing week in and week out against the likes of Man Utd and Man City, Chelsea or Arsenal if that is what he wants to do?). No one else that Reading are supposed to be buying? Reading have not been linked with any more goalkeepers today either ... that must be a first. I think this is all a ploy by other teams just to unsettle the Reading regular first team.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

All you get is reading saying there on the up and buying everyone there is jealous fans out there but just remember you were a small club in the championship so just don't get ahead of yourselves

Huddersfield Town update:
Apparently, Paul Scharner will be having a medical on Thursday as he is a free agent. I can see that deal happening because grayson makes marquee signings: Big names, not very good players. That is according to a good friend who supports leeds. Adam Clayton, now, this rumour seems believable, as he is no longer wanted at Leeds because he wants too much for their budget. Huddersfield could probably afford this as they offered Paul green 10k more than Leeds. Ross Mccormack is in a similar position as Adam Clayton, even though they could both go bigger. Crystal palace is not bigger than Huddersfield as Huddersfield have more money, a bigger stadium etc. people may question this as they have been in the championship longer than us. But who's bigger - Southampton or Wigan? It's definitely Southampton. Paul Dixon today signed for Town as it says on the official website. Other rumours include signing Young centre-back Danny Wilson from Liverpool. This is believable because they have a good relationship, as shown with kelly and Ecclestone coming on loan in the past few seasons. Also, I have heard that Benik Afobe might be coming for a second loan spell. I REALLY HOPE NOT!

I hope this helped :)

Hi all Celtic eds. First time poster. Love the sight, on it everyday. Just wanted to say that as a Celtic fan I am sick fed up hearing about Celtics goalkeeping situation. Celtic have never had a commanding number 1 for years. Time the board gave Forster what he's wanting. Can see him developing into a really top class keeping in years to come.

Ed - what is your take on the whole investment/takeover milarkey? It sounds positive at last BUT we have been built up in the past only to be let down. How confident are you that something positive will happen for Leeds and how soon ya think it may happen? Cheers matey {Ed013's Note - I believe that it has been happening for a long time now and Leeds were pressured into releasing something from the media and fans as rumour control was getting the better of most. Obviously something is happening, who, we don't know, but the way the statement read seems to be more than just investment}

Rumours are circulating that Charlton and Millwall will be sharing a new 45K seater stadium in the next three years. Each club will own a third the remainder owned by Greenwich Council.(16) (21)


Millwall's stadium is not even 20 years old and Charlton's had a massive overhaul 20 years ago. Plus neither side can fill a 20k stadium, forget about 45k.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah sounds great when max crowds 10-15 thousand 45thousand stadium

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's more likely the teams will merge completely is what I've heard. Foreign money talking here!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Its possible?!coyl

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thats unbelievable. Millwall dont even reach half of there capacity and charlton usually get 6k less than there full capacity !

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes thats why all that redeveloping is happening at the valley like in the superstore

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No chance dont want to leave the valley

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Where u get this from? hate the idea!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is not true

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a load of rubbish! That will never happen! More chance messi joins millwall then them playing with charlton in a shared ground! A new revamp of the area around the den also makes your rumour absolute rubbish!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Millwall arnt in Greenwich borough so why would they go a third in on a stadium? Try Southwark.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wouldn't happen as neither club could fill it and the stadium hasn't even been built yet.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No way! This isn't true .

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Are you off your head. turn to page 3 of today's south london press.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Never happen, Millwall and Charlton are rivals and would never share a stadium. I'm quite content with The Valley thanks very much

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Really? Are you mad?
this will never happen

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ha ha, what a load of rubbish. For starters both clubs operate in different councils. Millwall have already submitted regeneration plans. As for a local council owning a third of the new stadium, you may have noticed theres a recession happening and ALL local councils are skint.
Another post by a 14yr old ?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Absolute rubbish

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not too sure about this rumour, wouldnt go down with either set of supporters and seeing as we( millwall) have relatively new stadium that holds around 6 thousand a week, so 45 thousand is slightly more than we need

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With that many seats they'd be able to play at the same time and still have thousands of seats empty.

By the way, why would a team from Lewisham want to play in Greenwich?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BULLs**t, when charlton next get to the prem, they hope expand their stadium to 40,600 all seated

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Totally stupid idea, merging? Don't make me laugh - being our chairman has been there for 6 years now and he's turned down over bids including a one from abu dhabi why on earth would we do that,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not saying charlton would fill 45 k because we wouldn't but we averaged 18k in league 1 and we expect a minimum of 22/23k with 25/26/27k against rivals and big teams so charlton would give a decent go to filing it but millwall only get like 12k a week with maybe 16 odd k against rivals
