Hughton has got his man - Craig mackail smith , hopefully he will provide the energy Norwich need up front as help for the tireless holt !!

Believable6 Unbelievable10

It just shows how little you know bout football. There is noway norwich will go down. U must have to much time nothing to do

Agree2 Disagree1

Sad Ipswich fan above do you want him?because you won't get Campbell your skint.

Agree2 Disagree2

More chance of Ipswich getting Campbell then you getting bent or crouch cms or any other little dream you have cause you ain't got any money and you 100% won't pay money out lol

Agree1 Disagree2

Why would Norwich go for CMS when they have the ability to stick £6m in the pot for Charlie Austin or shoot for Hooper at Celtic ? Is that the sort of ambition Houghton has....if so I think we'll be seeing you soon in the Championship

Agree1 Disagree1

Because you havn't or would pay 6mill simple as that

With Rafa wanting to make his own stamp on his Chelsea team expect him to make up to 5 signing this transfer window with 2 of these expected signings being Demba Ba and Theo Walcott, with Chelsea also being intrested in David Villa, Luke Shaw and Dan Agger

Believable1 Unbelievable8

5 Signings !! Chelsea aready have enough players for 2 Premiership teams and cant get it right and your telling us you need another 5. If this is the case then its just another embarressing illustration of how some clubs are being run by buffoons with No knowledge and No coaching ability. Cant wait to see the money run out.

Agree4 Disagree0

Looks like shaw may have played his last lge game for soton , chelsea poised with the cash

Agree1 Disagree4

30 Dec 2012 19:40:31
Theo Walcott, Demba Ba and Luke Shaw all look very likely that they will now sign for Chelsea this transfer window

Believable2 Unbelievable13

You have more chance of signing George Bernard Shaw!

Matty Phillips to Norwich

Believable0 Unbelievable6

Matty Phillips is ready for Premiership and Blackpool will sell as his valua at end of season will be less than January due to playing in a poorer Tom Ince less Blackpool. Not sure that Norwich will be his destination.

Agree0 Disagree0

Phillips has been awful all season, what is he meant to be a striker or a winger?He is not a winger in my book, he has no tricks and not much delivery.All he does is kick the ball past defenders and tries to beat them with pace.He will be found out in the EPL again if he moves there.And it shows us just exactly how bad Scotland is just now, picking such a ordinary player.And I have nothing against him being English, guys like Rhodes, Bardsley, Mackie, Morrison do it for us. {Ed003's Note - He has hardly played this year through injury? 'found out in the Prem again'? he got rave reviews.}

Agree0 Disagree0

No Ed wrong again, he has played most of the season.Its just that he has not been noticed as his form went of the boil, when he was linked with a move to the EPL.Plenty of Scottish SPL players deserve a chance over him, such as Gary Mackay Steven, and even Ryan Frazer even if he has not played much.Both players have everything you need to be a winger, and have power pace skill and delivery, plus they can entertain. {Ed003's Note - Right so when I take my seat at Bloomfield Rd I'm halucinating and he has been playing loads? he was left out at the start of the season after handing a transfer request in, after the summer window he was slowy intigrated back into the team until he was in the starting 11 then got injured he has started 10 games,so who is wrong me or you? }

Agree0 Disagree0

You he has made Scotland squads, and we do not pick players that are not playing for there clubs, especially from ordinary leagues such as yours.Maybe you think its Kevin you were watching instead?Since your a fan then, tell me what he has that makes him a EPL or international class player?Even Burke got more assists than he did last year for Birmingham and 14 goals. {Ed003's Note - You tell me seeing as you stated he has been awful all season ? or is the truth you have not seen him once? unbelievable.Oh and Kevin has hardly played}

Agree0 Disagree0

I have saw him play 17 times this season for Blackpool, still you think that is not a lot of games.Are you going to answer a fair question?Want to tell me what he has, apart from blinding pace?As I do not see much of a footballer there.Hopefully when we get a new boss, he will see the same.The guys simply not international class in my eyes. {Ed003's Note - you keep contradicting yourself,find an argument with another englishman,you are boring me}

Agree0 Disagree0

I am not looking for a argument and never asked for your nationality, why are you turning this into a Scotland V England thing?What is with the hostility, and why cant you answer my question?You sound quite a bitter person, could see you and Maximus getting on like a burning house, that he would wish was north of Berwick.

Agree0 Disagree0

Russell Martin won't leave, I asked him after the Wigan game when I had a pic if he was happy and he said he love the club and pilk's won't leave as his family have finally finished settling in Norfolk. COYY

Celtic fan here , but after todays result Peter Houston must go , I have always liked Dundee Utd but this guy has turned them into a middle table team at best.

Qpr to be relegated & Harry to quit - very soon !!

Believable19 Unbelievable4

Dont worry, he is never far away from his next sacking/mutual consent etc.

Agree11 Disagree0

We will have harry at wolves

Agree1 Disagree7

HARRY more likely to head to Reading if he doesnt remain at QPR. You have to remember he lives in Bournemouth at the bottom of the M3 so Reading will work well. Dont expect him to venture any further away cus it aint gonna happen.

Agree1 Disagree3

Middlesbroughs big January move will be for birmingham winger Nathan Redmond the club is riddled with debt and will be forced to cash in on there top stars plus the fact that Redmond isn't the first name on the team sheet at the brum means they would be willing to sell for anywhere between £3 -£4 million
Zigic will be given a free transfer and will probably move to former club racing Santander in Spain butland will move to a premiership team and marlon king will join leeds for £2 million

Believable0 Unbelievable1

Ha ha stick to fifa redmond would never join boro for starters you ant even got 4 million.

Agree0 Disagree1

Zigic wages too high which has been the problem with Birmingham offloading him earlier.

Chelsea are now favourites to sign Arsenal forward Theo Walcott and are also in talks to sign Demba Ba from Newcastle as well as being intrested in players such as James Milner, Falcoa, Luke Shaw , Mrtin Skrtel and David Villa however not all of these players will be signed as departures are a key factor in the transfers.

Believable0 Unbelievable6

Walcott will be offered improved deal Arsenal , expect him to stay , i think chelsea will def sign Falcao , shaw and demba ba

Agree3 Disagree3

I think Shaw will def stay at Saints at least until the summer

Agree4 Disagree2

Everywhere you look now its shaw to chelsea, its gonna happen, long term replacement for cole

Agree0 Disagree2

31 Dec 2012 11:05:36
George Bernard Shaw not Luke Shaw, he's staying at Saints mate

Agree1 Disagree1

Well everywhere i look it actually says he's going to Arsenal but he won't be going anywhere before the summer at the earliest.

How long will sturridge last at pool before he falls out with Suarez !! They are both greedy & never pass !!

Believable7 Unbelievable5

Suarez doesn't need to pass , he scores when he wants

all these swindon rumours they are all B/S
Dicanio has overspent as normal.
Theres a danger of another embargo.
The so called Rich Board will invest no more.
As Bournemoths Russian he will ensure his Manager has Funds.
Bournemouth will win the Division whereas Swindon just might survive.
I think it's just the Board have had enough of Dicanio
Look in Jan there will be several outgoings and little incomings.
Oh correction Dicanio and his agent just may make a few Bob themselves
Sad day for Swindon Town

Believable0 Unbelievable1

They wont' win the lge, won't get promo at all , tranmere, doncaster and coventry to go up

Ed... any news on who is the leading candidate for the director of football role at plymouth argyle. Hopefull its o.driscoll as he apparently is good mates with carl fletcher and I think he would be great for the club. {Ed013's Note - No afraid not and he is linked with Barnsley job}

Any legitimate rumours for Fulham. It seems that Sinan Bolat is nailed on. Madlung from Wolfsburg have gathered pace and there is a lot of talk that we are going to go i for Darren Bent. Midfielders are a must though

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Here is a legitimate one, rumour has it you might be in the bottom 3 come May.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Dec 2012 10:19:42
McInnes saved his job with the win yesterday and I think he knows this. Frantically now trying to bolster squad before being hit with Millwall, Leicester and Leeds. Personally I think we will be lucky to get 3-5 points out of these games unless changes occur. But which sucker wants to come to Bristol ?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

The West Countrys massive club are on a one way ticket to League One and oblivion.

One of the crimes of the Century how this club has been mismanaged on the field over recent years.

Agree0 Disagree2

What massive club terrible support not even biggest club in there city

Agree4 Disagree0

West Country never been a football location and loaded with Rugby teams. Needs a great management personality to coach, attract and deliver rather than simply trying to buy in players who dont perform with consistency. They tried with COPPELL but something went amiss. Personally I would edge for MARK HUGHES who needs to repair his credibility. McINNES is not the guy

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2012 10:08:06

Ed's, can Southampton recall Billy Sharp back off loan from Notts Forrest or isn't it possible? He's scoring so many goals and would be brilliant if he came back. {Ed003's Note - He is there until the end of the season}
