liverpool are trying to bring in flamini as a straight swap for aquilani(11)(36)Are you desperate?Flamini is a decent player and is also versatile. If it's Liverpool's intention to sign a short-term replacemen for Lucast, Flamini would be a decent option. Saying that, I still think that they'll persist with Spearing in the meantime.

Both Jelavic and Davis of Rangers being punted around EPL with £6.5m and £2m being quoted aslong as payment is cash- direct from an agent. McGregor will only be sold for £6m plus should stay until the Summer. McCoist is planning double swoop on St.Johnstone for Sandanza and Davidson but wages have been laughed at. Loan for Chelsea youth player but don't know name.(21)(8)Also heard this about Davis and heard he is gutted because he is the captain of his boyhood heroes! Without him the league is gone!Your club might be gone soonTwo million for davis ? we paid three million for him and he has just penned a new five year deal so get a grip and stop talking pish timothy !!St Johnstone shall be looking for at least 1500000 for the 2 of them something rangers do not have as they are about to go bustUtter rubbish. The board has set the price for Jelavic and they will only sell at that price. All this nonsense about Rangers going bust yet there storys in the paper today saying McCoist wants to splash 2mm on Javi Guerra

Hi Ed, do you know of any Norwich transfer rumours? Or do you know if any of these rumours are true; Snodgrass, Matt Philipps, Jordan Rhodes, Nicky Maynard, Chris Gunter, Wilfried Zaha? Just names I have heard, and would love to know if you know if there is any truth behind any of these. Also do you know anymore about the young German player? {Ed003's Note - Phillips has been watched by a lot of teams and at least 2 offers have been turned down,the others I dont know,sorry }(9)(8)No way Zaha will go Norwich, bigger clubs looking at him and he signed a 5 year deal 2 weeks ago.
And yes im a palace fan, not hating #justsaying^ this isn't twitter?You have no hope of getting Snodgrass, he wants to join CelticHope snograss does join glasgow celticPhilips to norwich what garbage is this if he goes and only if, it will be to a big club his manager said chairman said and so did the player so give it a rest fool.

Podolski to arsenal 9 million
Pato to arsenal 40 million
Rhodes to arsenal swoop with afobe
Arshavin to zenit
Fabianski to norwich-loan
Afobe to huddersfield(12)(8)Yeeeeeeeee right , pato whos injury prone for 40 mil , so who sits on the bench van persie, ur crazay , a crazay man u r whos just .... carazy
5 gold starsBelievable apart from PatoYou won't get pato podolski or Rhodes keep smoking the good stuffHudders will want more than afobe he is there RVP at least £4m and then maybe afobe aswell!Afobe not bad player. lot younger the rhodes but rhodes going to be a lot better player, afobe couldn't hit barn door last season butstill young would expect 4-5m plus afobe! UTTWhy would Norwich want another keeper? Fans have every faith in Ruddy and have 3 good young keepers at the club so no keeper will be bought at carrow for some time


09 Jan 2012 21:58:54
People are saying that Dobbie is part of a swap deal for Maynard between Swansea and Bristol City, but the talk going on around Swansea is that Leroy Lita is the player involved in the deal and not Dobbie. Lita is not playing much game time at the Swans and may be would be up for a return to Bristol City.(4)(13)No chance of Leroy returning to Bristol, he would be in too much trouble of the pitch for it to be sensible.It is on the back page of the Bristol Evening Post about the Maynard - Dobbie and cash deal. i would not want Lita back at ashton Gate, very lazy, useless and over ratedNow reported on the BBC website too


09 Jan 2012 21:41:19
that was a bit convenient, henry unmarked and scores the winner, I bet that there was a few big bets placed on that one?r(20)(7)From where I was sitting it looked offside, but as it was Henry it was over-looked. Too busy cooing over him. Yes I am a Leeds fan and yes Arsenal deserved to win, they had enough blooming chances to win comfortably. However I do feel like it wasn't going to be their night and would have welcomed a draw, just so we could have another go at them with the likes of Snodgrass and some new transfers.Henry wasn't offside...aidy white played him on


09 Jan 2012 21:40:15
Leeds to offer Henry a loan move after a drab game at the emirates, master bates having a wet dream over the night(12)(28)

leicester to sign
cameron stewart and billy sharp
southampton to sign gary hooper and nicky maynard
west ham to sign jordan rhodes and vedran corluka(19)(34)Dream on about hooper hes to good for the championship and hes out of ur price range!!Cameron doesn't want to go and Hull don't want to sell so Leicester are wasting their time.All these players are far 2 good for the camp. This is utter rubbishDonny and Leicester have already agreed a fee for Sharp just awaiting personal termsSouthampton and Celtic have agreed a fee for HooperWhy is it ppl think that hull wont sell 2 leicester? its utter bcks! bye far the richest club in the championship FACT! if pearson desperately wants sum1 then he will get him end of!! BLUE ARMYHow can you judge if Hooper is to good for the Championship when he only plays in that piss pot SPLLeicester are nowhere near the richest club in the Championship, their owner barely makes the top half of the table, he just seems to like wasting his money. They might get Sharp, they won't get Stewart.If you are judging "richest" club by the wealth of its owner, you may want to check out who own Southampton FC and how much they are worth.Im a celtic fan hooper wont be sold for any priceSharp isn't going to leicesterCameron Stewart is going nowhere! He as pledged his alligence to Hull City, so quitter Pearson might as well look elsewhere eh!


09 Jan 2012 20:51:19
Bradford City keen on taking Watford striker Joe Garner on loan to add to their firepower. Garner is out of favour at Vicarage Road with Sean Dyche looking at loan options instead of the former Forest man.(2)(5)


09 Jan 2012 20:49:09
Youre mad, wolves dont pay big wages, and are not in debt at all, old firm arent a force and couldnt hack the pace of the prem.(11)(5)It is easy to slag the old firm, but rangers got £2m for winning the title last year,when the team that finish bottom of the epl get £35m. Just remember that is every year. Given a level playing field rangers and Celtic would blow wolves out of the water. Just remember that rangers took 150,000 fans to Manchester, no other team in the
World could have done that.
I don't think 150000 have even Heard of wolves {Ed003's Note - It was 100k yesterday,but you have to remember you play under a different affiliation, I just dont get it myself nobody from other affiliations try to compere themselves with the EPL ? }Behave of course the old firm could cope in the pl. Might take a couple of seasons to get some money but could defo compete. The money in the pl is ten fold to the spl and we have some I the largest fan base in the ukI'm a wolves fan, but I have to say if Rangers or Celtic were given the chance to play in the Premier League and had the money that that goes with it they would grow and become a force within a few years. The size of the clubs there fan base's are huge they have massive gates compared to English clubs like Wigan. This is one of the main reasons that they should never be given the oppurtunity because english clubs would suffer in the long run.I am not being funny, but the EPL is shown all around the world to possibly even billions of people if you think about it in Asia, so even if 'knowing' about Wolves is only a by product of playing against some of the so called better teams in the world, it is still more coverage than what the SPL gets, I am not sure of exact numbers, but the supporter numbers (people who have bought tickets), are in the 200 thousands, so even taking in the fact a few people will have 1, 2 or possibly even 3 numbers, that could accumulate up to at least 125k people buying tickets alone, there are also quite a number of fan clubs around the world who follow Wolves, and also the general support who dont go to games, so I do believe 150000 have at least heard of Wolves.

Just to add, I think you would struggle to begin with in the EPL as if you were a championship club who has just been promoted if you look at your squads as they are (Players who couldnt make it in the EPL, and those who are untested Championship players or those who haven't left Scotland yet. You have a few exciting young players coming through, dont get me wrong even your national side will be decent in a few years time, but just 1 thing you will struggle to compete with in the EPL, and that is to attract players, who wants to go to Glasgow, when there are alot better cities on offer in England, from an outsider looking in I know where I would go, and almost anywhere in England is better than Scotland (I stress not everywhere).

So to conclude, until you actually do start playing in the EPL, we will never know how you would do, and since this is almost certainly not going to happen, I think and more discussion on it is pretty pointless?Wolves fan is talking sense. we would compete and it would be hard for a season or two but we would have the fan base and the ability to attract big players. After a few years they'd be up neat the top.'A force' doubtful, midtable at best.SPL sides would only be half decent in the championship, there best players are of the same calibre of kyle lafferty who couldnt even hack the championshipThe two sticking points with this are,
Where would Celtic & Rangers,Conference?
Blue Square? they could not be expected to
join the football league without having to progress through the divisions on merit,and what would happen to the SPL
without the revenue that the Big Two generate.Although there are some good points being made here they are completely irrelevant as it will never happen, although you could ask the question as to why the EPL has Welsh teams in it?

BobbybuffonThe Welsh teams were in there from the start or at least very early on!

bournemouth to sign Swindons Matt Ritchie for 1.5 million plus add ons........ Big things happening at the south coast club thanks to russian investment with the club already having spent over 2 million on permanent deals for their loan signings acording to Steve fletcher (Bournemouth striker) who I was chatting to in the gym tonight(6)(27)Disregard this one.....He wasn't in the gym. He was on twitter posting pictures of him playing darts on the xbox with his daughters. Check for yourselves.....the truth is out there.Total rubbish for a start Bournemouth wouldnt pay 1.5 million and Ritchie wont go to Bournemouth as he sees Swindon and what is happenning there a bigger club than Bournemouth.He'll sign eventually, not for £1.5m though. League two players are not worth that much. Swindon might get some sign on clauses but if the lad is that good he's going to want to move to a club on the up.I'll bet you 1.5 million he doesnt go to liitle Bournemouth and any Russian who is a pal of your chairman has to be iffy how many times has his company gone bust - oh Yes that s it just the SEVEN TIMES. - and apparently he is proud to call his current building company seven building


09 Jan 2012 21:47:18
Liverpool linked with any player who has a pulse!(48)(12)Its better to be linked, and lost, than never to be linked at all. Everton take note.

ynwaAnd all of those players are willing to walk bare footed as they are Liverpool fans and are coming for a quarter of the asking price because everyone wants to be part of the club.I think you are mistaken its Tottenham who are linked to any living species in the world..........and a fair few that don'tWell maybe not ipswich players, not that many of them belong to them! OTBC!

Christoph Daum new England coach.

According to resident HVM, the 58-year old
has been made first chice replacement for
Fabio Capello.

65y old Italian has 60% winning record
since he took over in December 2007.
However, his contract will run out on July, 30th 2012
regardless of how England will fare at the Euro finals.

If he does not fail the medical test,
Daum will be second German to coach national team
in the UK, after Bertie Vogts' spell with Scotland.(2)(16)


09 Jan 2012 21:25:33
Demba Ba will be staying at St. James Park until next summer and he will most likely be moving to PSG who will offer him sky high wages, the Senegalese forward was born in Paris and according to the man himself he has always wanted to play for PSG. Tottenham,Liverpool and Arsenal are all thought to be interested in Ba who has a £5m release clause and i'm sure we will hear about this clause nearly every day until the 1st of February but a January move appears highly unlikely while a summer move to moneybags PSG who need a forward seems very likely.(25)(15)Already in talks


09 Jan 2012 20:57:03
Junior Hoilett deal almost done as kk sees him as the ideal player to fill RW position. Liverpool to also bid for stokes tuncay sanli and/or Demba Ba of Newcastle. Kk also needs to bolster the midfield and will target chiek tiote. The only player to transfer from overseas will be gaston ramirez of Bologna to add some creativity to the side.

The futures bright......the futures red {Ed025's Note - is there anyone who they are not buying?(4)(39)They wont be signing Ken Aguero!Tuncay Sanli doesn't play for Stoke anymore he left last seasonYeah evraLiverpool to spend 70 mil plus in this window? LOL no, they will sell Suarez to Real for 30 mil, and then maybe they will spend some of that.Tuncay has been to germany and now bolton on loan,u know plenty about football it seems

Apparently Ipswich have had a bid for Dave Kitson rejected for approximately £500,000. And also Portsmouth have agreed to sign simon Cox and Marc_Fortune with either Ben Haim or Luke Varney going the other way, depending on their choosing. Also Darcy Blake has agreed to join Portsmouth for a fee up to £250,000 depending on if pompey get a owner by then! any other pompey news uve heard pleasee reply and tell me what that is!;)(5)(25)Ipswich are 60 million in debt no more moneyI'd heard that Pompey need to get rid of Ben Haim, Kitson, Varney and Lawrence before the window shuts to drastically reduce their wage bill. If they can't and don't get new owners pretty quickly they won't be able to pay January's wages. And whoever buys them is going to need to rebuild the ground having paid Gaydamak £15 million or so for the land around Fratton Park first, find and build a new training ground (instead of renting a school field in Eastleigh) and then build an academy from the ground up. Although would anyone invest all that in a club only getting average gates of 15,000?Any news on the takeover15.000 is good for a 20.000 stadium given were now in the championship. And we don't owe 15 million to gaydamak for the land at all. He owns the land around the ground I.e the car park which is a few mill tops. There's a lot of money to be made at Pompey it's wether the right people invest or not. Could make huge profit long term. Plus we have the best fans in England fact.10 Jan 2012 09:03:44

Read it
Marcus Evans has and will continue to back jewell with Money and it's not Ipswich in that much dept it's how much Evans has lost! :)Surely if you had the best fans in the country every home game would be a sell out, would it not?, please enlighten me as to how anyone can make a profit from Portsmouth. You need to wake up and smell the roses mate, PFC are in trouble BIG TIME. Now that's a FACT!I would have thought that £500K was about right for Kitson, also Haden Mullins for around the same fee, at least they wouldnt have to worry if they were going to be paid each month, I cant see for the life of me who would invest in Pompey, I think they have been delt a raw deal when Harry took over, well over spent to get their success and now its biting them back big time, I do hope someone comes in and brings some stability to Pompey they dont deserve all this crap that they and the fans have been dragged through.

Ipswich Town FanJust like there was money to be made out of Chelsea and any other team that's been tarted up and rolled in glitter. Pompey have fantastic fans and are feeling the pinch like everyone else. I would say 15.000+ is very good for them considering where they are at the moment. They'll be fine I like Pompey always have done. Very passionate people and I hope they finally get right owners that treat them right? And get them back to the prem etc

Nicky Maynard to swansea for 2m plus dobbie(13)(17)Offer accepted. Only personal terms to be agreed.....The way he played on Saturday against crawley his not good enough for premSo basically because he had a poor game against crawley, your saying he is not good enough for the prem. Some fickle footy supporters out there. If Swansea sign him he will score goals. Reasons- He be playing with better players, training with better players and playing for one of the best managers in the prem.Why do you think the manager is one of the best in the prem league. You Jack person you have played 20 games and won 5 that makes him a great manager yes.

fabio aurelio to sunderland 3.25m(24)(20)...with his injury record ?? :)Im a liverpool fan, and when he is fit he is a top player, however when is the big thing. I heard somewhere that in the course of his liverpool career he played less than 30% of games he should have been available for. A shame really because a fully fit in form aurellio is a threat to any team. If you get him, when he plays you'll love him, but I doubt a club like sunderland would take such a big gamble on a plyer whose fitness is questionable at best

Birmingham City goalkeeper Colin Doyle could leave in the january transfer window with Watford keeping an eye on the situation.(14)(4)Dont blame him tbh. weve had him since 2003 he's only made 25 professional appearances for us, and only making 42 professional club appearances in total. i guess he needs the step down to watford so that he can get some first team action. hes a good keeper and ill miss him. fair play to him for sticking it out for 8 seasons!'OHHHHH we were in the Europa League' get over yourself mate, your championship now where you belong, not a step down for a mere average goalkeeper! Did great up at Liverpool didnt he last year!!

adam johnson on his way to anfield for 14m to get regular 1st team football before he loses his england spot for the euros(33)(31)Well Adam Johnson signed a new 5 year deal with city in nov knowing he was not getting 1st team football just wanted more money tho!...@PossibleDream on sunshine - no chance!No one of his calibre is going to join Liverpool , you are a second rate club now.Get used to it! He is a cracking little player and would not entertain you guys when he does not need to.FACT!


09 Jan 2012 18:04:41
liverpool preparing a £17.5m bid for aaron lennon(20)(47)Unlikely, but he would be great.What while hes injured?Lol dont be so stupid boy , why would he want to go??Good moveWhy would they do that, Spurs won't sell Lennon and that kind of offer would hardly entice them to sell a player of his quality, plus why would he want to move to a team with only an outside chance of CL next season when he has an excellent chance where he isFor that money I'll drive him there myselfAaron lennon to liverpool it is very unlikelyAaron hates Liverpool! Not going to happenWhen theyve got about 100 wingers? i don't think so palI think 17.5 would be a decent price from any one other then liverpol but with their history of overpaying spurs should ask for double

YaoLiverpool got 100 wingers ?
Aaron Lennon hates liverpool -why
unlikley to happen, in this world-think again
lennon not good enough this season so keep him.

Ed - any you heard developments on rumours for SAFC? Ie. Peinaar and James Collins? Also anything 'concrete' regarding Sunderland signing a forward? {Ed001's Note - the only concrete thing regarding a forward, is that they had Rhodes watched, but so did half the Prem! Pienaar has tried to get a return to Everton, doesn't seem to be happening though, no idea of any more though. Collins I have no idea about sorry.}(9)(6)

Norwich City Hot Gossip;

No lies on this list.
Juan Pablo Angel (short term loan) from MLS. De laet is going back due to his persistant back problems.
Gary Cahill's move to Chelsea is being held up as Bolton are dependant on them getting Norwich centre half Leon Barnett who is seeking a move for first team football.
Finally Aaron Wilbraham to Ipswich is happening, deal will be sorted in the next 48 hours. Player and club are said to be delighted about the capture of the ex mk dons player.(15)(18)What a load of rubbish this isI agree, most of this sounds rubbish rumours, Juan Pablo Angel / yeh right lol, and why would Norwich sell Barnett to Bolton a team who could impact on our chances of staying up, never going to happen. Wilbraham to Ipswich and is well documented in papers already, but will only happen if Lambert gets a fourth striker in for 1st team squad.The De-Laet could be a possible, because he has suffered a few injuries, but NCFC would still have to pay his salary through end of season, so it will only happen if Lambert has a replacement loan he desperately wants to bring in, because its an expensive option.


09 Jan 2012 17:31:31
Leicester city close to bringing emile heskey back to where it all began.Nigel Pearson's a long time admirer of the prolific striker's speed and ability to poach a goal out of nothing,a nominal fee is all that's required.Pearson's also hoping to recruit Kieran Dyer on a pay as you play deal to form a lethal partnership with heskey!(13)(12)AHAA "prolific" and "poach a goal out of nothing", have you been watching the same Heskey as the rest of us! ha too funny!Also heard this but with hargreaves in cm just for guaranteed strenght over 40 games a season!Dyer,s out for the seasonNot a hope of this happening heskey is out for the next monthHeskey taught messi all he knowsShrewd business from pearson,sleepless nights ahead for championship defences facing smash n grab,once they hit a purple patch no one will handle their pace and power,a lethal combination!He can trap a ball further than some can kick it


09 Jan 2012 17:31:08
my dad saw daniel levy at a conference, he asked him about anyu transfer rumours, he said there's a few irons in the fire, on of which being tim howard... his contract runs out in the summer too(4)(10)Everton goalie please no hes rubbish !Oh yes, because when a random person meets Levy, someone that Levy has never met, he will go and tell him a player who he is interested in, one that he hasn't told anyone else about.Going nowhere, + has three years on his contract, so a liar or very ill infomed.Daniel Levy would not be telling people who he was looking to buy and even if he did he wouldn't be looking at Tim HowardI doubt he would have said anything, are you mad?So he has Friedel, Gomes, and Cudicini, who are all better than Howard in my opinion.But Tim has a higher goals to chances ration than most of the spurs team


09 Jan 2012 17:31:05
Source from inside the club that Southampton had a bid of 4.5M for Gary Hooper rejected and as a result won't go over 6M as they don't want a bidding war and Hooper could want more then the 20k per week wage cap at St Mary's(9)(19)The wage cap at Saints is less than 20k it 12k and i keep telling you Saints fans about all these strikers you are tlaking about signing you will have a team of strikers according to you lot.

So again i will tell you Cortese wont buy players for silly money and wont pay more than your 12k wage cap- i know trust meI'm fairly sure Lallana is on 22 or 23K a week as it is, so I don't think the wage cap is 20K.12k? Ok, you clearly know nothing. Lallana and fonte for example, are both way above that. 22k is the wage cap. Get your facts right, and yes we maybe linked with a few strikers, a good manager doesnt go for one, he has back up plans, so yes alot of inquiries will be made. So think before you post. All it takes is a bit of logic.No FR know's what the wage cap is, if any, unless you have inside information, which so many people seem to have on here. Saints will sign players if it is for the good of the club, they wont pay silly money for any individual player. We have had our finacial problems before as most people are aware. Under Cortese this will not happen again, it not a lack of ambition, it is being sensible. Ask Pompey what happens when you try and buy success.The top player at Southampton is actually 17kWAGE CAP IS 20k per week 5k bonuses
Lee has agreed a 800k per year contractWell i know someone senior at Saints and im telling you the wage cap is 12k as i've told you lot before but you come out with these saints stories which are all fairy tales.

apparently you were getting Billy Sharp but looks like hes going to Leicester as both clubs have agreed a fee and i told you that as well. I know more about the inside of your club than you as i keep telling you because of a senior guy i know.

Liverpool are considering a joint bid of around £6m for Huddersfield starlets Alex Smithies and Jordan Rhodes which would see the pair loaned back to Huddersfield until January of next year. Liverpool have already opened talks with Blackburn over a possible £7m move for David Hoilett. Dirk Kuyt,Joe Cole,Fabio Aurelio,Brad Jones,Alberto Aquilani and Maxi Rodriguez are likely to have left Anfield by the start of next season and Liverpool are planning summer moves for Luuk de Jong and Xherdan Shaqiri but while Liverpool continue to look towards the future they may miss out on Champions League football which will be detrimental in attracting the best young talent.(9)(26)Rhodes worth 6m alone and still no word on when smithies will return (if ever) just cant see itRhodes will go to NorwichRhodes is going no where until the summer depending on what league we are in. Why would anyone bid for smithes when he not fit!


09 Jan 2012 17:22:20
Gary hooper (Celtic) seen in black Mercedes at st Mary's Southampton this eve with agent(19)(31)Proven scorer at Champonship & SPL levels & a previous working relationship with Adkins. Fingers crossed, however Lennon didn't sound keen when interviewed recently.Hoope is not good enough to play for the current Saints team, i would be pretty down beat if this signing gets the go ahead.There must be 2 Gary Hooper's then because the one that plays for Celtic is actually in Glasgow right now #truthHooper isn't good enough? Are you insane, Hooper would be exactly the player we need along side Lambert. I know this is very very unlikely but I hope it's true.Yea lets drive from Glasgow to Southampton. That shouldnt take long...Hooper wouldn't leave to go to championship far to good for that levelWhat is it with some fans from small clubs ,who do you expect to sign ,rooney,messi,ronaldo ?I didnt know ashton lane was in southampton?

ahhh....unless it's one of those supersonic mercedes he's in

stop just making up 541t!Don't think that's likely. If a player was to sign then he'd surely be taken to Staplewood?More then likely adkins said today he was very close to completing a deal to sigh a top class player .... Ps said in the daily echo paperGuys, has anyone thought that he could have been picked up from Southampton airport in a black Merc, 90 min flight from Glasgow.
Rumour has it that Lennon wants to un- load him because of his wage demands to be paid top rate at club, this would release funds for him to bring in another striker, may actually be some truth in this story.
Celtic may get 60,000 in for big derby's but their share of TV money in Scottish league is poor, they get less than Championship clubs, so unless they get a goods run in euro cup they and Rangers struggle to get the really top players, they just can finance them.For a start, why would we be willing to sell our top scorer while we're attempting the treble, and the fact that we don't need to sell anyone?

Lennon has also said in the past day or so that no-one will be going anywhere unless crazy money is offered.

and where this nonsense rumour about hooper wanting to be top paid player comes from, i dont know. hooper has stated himself that any talk of contract extensions is being put off till the end of the season so he can focus on the games ahead without niggling worries

he's not going.....END OF!


09 Jan 2012 17:20:59
Bournemouth to bid for Matthew Ritchie again after refused a new contract at Swindon and they will be bidding the same as last time 500k(2)(16)You can bid 500k for Ritchie if you want which is mickey mouse money as you wont get him for that not when Championship teams are hovering for him and going to offer more money plus the fact he says he wants to stay as he loves playing under Paolo and he can see the club really progressing under him.

With all due respect to Bournemouth you are a smaller club than us and we will soon be overtaking you. Ok you've got your Russian guy come in with some money but how long for as he could be another dodgy guy as Pompey had especially if he is a friend of your chairman.So muppet when did Ritchie refuse a new contract thats news to me as he still has two years left on this one.So just to put your nonsense rumour into context your manager says he wants one stiker in this window so that counts Ritchie out plus contract talks havent even been discussed with Ritchie so again total nonsense story and STFC have already stated he wont go for less than 1.5 - 2 m and Bournemouth wont pay that.Dream on mate 500k would not buy his bootsNo-one will pay that cos he's not worth that much.Then he will stay and see out his contract, because thats how much he is worth to us...

Two days before it was officially announced that we were in liquidation. A huge ship called the Amaryllis was in dock in Gun Wharf Quay. That shipped was owned by Billionaire Karl Albrecht the 12th Richest man in the world.
He already owns a sports club in America (Although not sure if it is American Football or "soccer").
Somehow I can't see his visit was to enjoy the festivities of Gun Wharf Quays.(4)(12)German boat builders Abeking & Rasmussen for a cost in excess of £100million and has been undergoing sea trials since SeptemberTheres no docks in GunwharfSo we'll be playing with Aldi on our shirts will we ? somehow can't see it.Yeah on board was olive oyl popeye and plutoSoory but that ship was actually in Edinburgh docked at Ocean Terminal (i even have a pic) and it is available for rent so not owned

Andrew Andronikou, who is quite open about his role, has stated again that Portsmouth are in talks with more than one potential future owner. He is keen to secure a long term future for the club including investement in a new stadium and state of the art training faclities.(9)(7)Are they planning on doing an MK Dons then a bu99ering off somewhere else?!The funniest thing ive read all year...100m for a stadium,20m,for the training ground,30m to service the debts etc etc....How are they going to make there money back?? There not, so unless its a PFC supporter this is pure fantasy... Ive heard the deal that was 48hrs away last tuesday has collasped...The above post is wide of the mark. When the debts are paid the ground and surround will be redeveloped at a significant profit. Much needed student accomodation will be part of the new development, among other regegeneration projects. A new ground coupled with training facilities will be developed concurrently including hotel and conference facilities. The club's new owners will also set out to provide a sports science academy.If there was so much profit in building a new ground and developing the surrounding area why has none of the previous owners done it?? Im a property developer and there is certainly no profit in spending 80-100m on a new ground and hopeing student accomadation and a few flats will make you a return,it wont...The land at fratton isnt big enough for anything like whats needed to interest any savy investor unless you knoch FP down and that isnt going to happen or is it?Yes, well read. The entire historical parcel of land including will be redeveloped including Fratton Park. It will not be a few flats but hundreds of attractive student lets in a block. plus other regeneration projects. One part at least will ne a run by a Community Interest Company. The new ground will outside the city one of two sites. This will faciltate ease of access to much larger away support contingents in the future. The sports science college will emerge here also. The new traing facility will be on the West in a country area requiring change of useage.

Norwich City have enquired about signing arsenal keeper luis fabianski on loan until the end of the season(9)(16)Good loan for norwich if it happens.Why would they want him? They have Ruddy, who has been linked with an England call up, and is better than Fabianski, and Rudd as backup who has played England Under 21 and is a good prospect. What a load of bcks.Isn't he called Lukasz?Rumour? fairytale more like, they already have two loan players and goalkeeper back up in two young England U21 & U19 internationals, plus we have our quota of 2 loans.


09 Jan 2012 16:51:56
Ipswich Town will pay Norwich City £500,000 for in-form striker Aaron Wilbraham(8)(16)That would be more like 100K, he has had less than 60 minutes on pitch this season in premier and I am sure if Lambert gets another striker in , he will be allowed to leave.I'm not arguing with the fact of Wilbraham leaving. But 500k? Well if anyway is stupid enough to pay that much for him it would be 1p5wich! Hope they do sign him, can only help them get relegated really! Poor player is WilbrahimovicNot sure your opinion of Wilbraham being a poor player is fair, he Joined Norwich as a back up to Holt at a diff level of football, and then we signed Morrison, who has kept Holt out of the team sometimes this season, so he has not had much of a chance to show his worth.He's not worth £500, never mind £500k, I'd be surprised if he wasn't allowed to leave on a free if anyone would take him.

Portsmouth are looking to sign Norwich City defender elliott ward on loan until the end of the season(12)(10)Been injured for so long its possible he'll go for couple months for matches, but no way for the season. he's still our best centre half when he's fit!Best centre half when he's fit? What have you been watching? Everyone I have spoken to, plus me, think he is our weakest central defender. So unreliable, and extremely slow. Offload him as soon as possible I sayPompey cant afford the wages of there players ATM let alone for him that's why it's cash only at fratton park to pay there wages up front lmaoPossible for a month loan to get him match fit after long injury lay off, but doubt Lambert will let him go permanently until season end, we had 3 CB's injured earlier in season, so doubt Lambert will sanction loan till season end.Not going to happen, one of our best centre backs!

Manchester United have made a bid to sign Ki from Celtic to bolster the central midfield, the offer is in the region of 7.5 million, Celtic have already turned down a bid of 6 million of Villa for the player just named Korean Player of the year(14)(25)Ki is worth a lot more than being offered, Celtic turned down 8 mill in the summer, and since becoming korean player of the year, try making an offer upwards of 10 mill plus, who do these EPL clubs think they are trying to get players on the cheap,Not a bad player would be a snip at that priceOverrated 2 mill playerWake up ,turned down 8 mil ,lawell wouldnt knock that back ,yet more deluded celtic fans dreamingCeltic have not turned down an offer from villa of any note, get your facts right please!Both rumours are utter tripeAlex Mc Leish has said it himself that they cant afford him


09 Jan 2012 16:44:44
Jay Rodriguez will go to fulham FACT!!(6)(22)Its only a fact if it has already happened, I think you will find he is on Norwich's radar as well.Must be true,use of the word 'Fact'I still think he's going to southamptonWould never happen! Why would Jol buy a player who hardly scores in the championship & take him to PL?No he wont fact

Bournemouth will sign Freddie Eastwood this week in a deal of £190,000 + Warren Cummings. Cummings will join Coventry as left back cover and will bring more experience


Bournemouth cant afford 190,000


seeing as how they have new rich russian owners, i think they probably can(9)(8)Freddie Eastwood can leave Coventry for nothing. Coventry told him to find a new club.They are not spending money so not that rich.Its common knowledge eastwood isnt fit and its also common knowledge that he can go for free as we just want him off the books..Bournemouth fans are like Saints fans they think they are going to buy everyone up as they have a dodgy Russian owner with some oil money.I'd heard it was Macdonald at Cov they were looking at, not Eastwood.We are considerably richer than yoooooooow!! E I E I E I O, up the football league we go! Dean court is buzzing :)


09 Jan 2012 16:39:37
Blackpool to sign el hadji diouf if phillips goes to Liverpool(8)(29)Diouf has signed a 18-month contract with doncaster so this is unlikely.Phillips going to Liverpool !! Wake up and return to the world of reality. He's almost 40 years old. What a load of tosh. {Ed001's Note - Matty Phillips, not Kevin!}Matt Phillips numpty, what an idiot. He's closer to 10 years old than he is 40. Quite a way off.What divs we get on here.
philips is not going anywhere chairman and manager have said,but maybe come the summer, if he goes to lpool would no doubt see a player come t other way as is the good relationship between clubs.
I think hes 1 of the best prospects ive seen at bpool for years, including sinclair,stewart,adam etc.

liverpool looking again to test ajax's resolve again in january with a £25million deal for cristian eriksen who is keen to link up again with suarez and international collegue daniel agger straight £25million cash or dirk kuyt and £12.5million(23)(18)U think kuyt worth 12 dream onAgger hardly plays and Suarez will be gone in the summer so when would he get to play with them plus he has turned down europes biggest clubs he's a winner not a mid table player so stick with donkey Adam and heavy HendersonEriksen wishes to move to a club with Champions League. Liverpool have very little chance of signing him.Agger has played almost every game this season idiot. Suarez loves the club, wouldn't leave unless a massive offer was accepted by Barca and only Barca. He came from Ajax who haven't set the world alight in the last few yrs and has said he believes in the LFC plans for the future.What a heap of made up rubbish.....Liverpool again.Eriksen has his pick of teams i doubt he will choose Liverpool, stick with the Downings and Hendersons of the world and leave the top players for the champs league teams.
Also i doubt Ajax fans would want a Feyanoord old boy in exchange for their golden childWhy not pick liverpool. Eriksen want too play, and if he picked Man city it would never happen. chelsea not that much. the only big clubs in the league who use the youngsters most, is liverpool and man utd.No way dirk will leaveSuarez to Arsenal for 25 mil. Clause in contract which they will meet.

and just signed a new contractOut of favour,he is back in the first team squad,u dont know much do u


09 Jan 2012 16:11:15
Snodgrass to join up with ex colleague at Norwich, 1.5mil(19)(17)I'm sure no-one would want to join up with Bradley 'Judas' Johnson. And it will take a bid of five times that amount to even open negotiations. You should check your facts.
wallyPrem has gone to your head, your still a small clubGive it up sad small Norwich,he don't even get on with bj.Now I know most Yorkshire folk a not the sharpest tools in the box, So lets try and keep this to works of less than three sylabuls. YOU ARE A VERY SMALL CLUB WHO ARE LIVING ON THE HISTORY OF DAYS LONG GONE BY.Ward is injured and we need strength in the backline so why would we loan himYeah we havnt got the money for him in january, wont happen indeed.
but small? cmon. sorry whats ur average attendance this year? let me enlighten you. 23,700. we're not a big club, sure. but our crowds average/season has been in the top 15 for years now (13th so far this yr) and its only going one way. look it up before shouting abuse, defo not a "small" club.I don't get all you Leeds fans. Yes your history is better, and you are a more well-known club around the world. But the situation is, Norwich are a premiership club, Leeds are championship, and it will be this way next season aswell. So if Norwich came in for him and had a bid accepted, I have no doubt Snodgrass would leave.The fact of the matter is, yes you may be bigger, in the way that around the world you are more well known, and that you have won more than us. But we are a premiership club, and will be next year, you are a championship club, and will be next year.Now I know most Yorkshire folk a not the sharpest tools in the box, So lets try and keep this to works of less than three sylabuls. YOU ARE A VERY SMALL CLUB WHO ARE LIVING ON THE HISTORY OF DAYS LONG GONE BY.

When knocking aforementioned Yorkshire folks lack of intellect it would help if you manage to spell your comments correctly you massive tool!
Either way this rumours nonsense!To the guy insulting "Yorkshire Folk".
The word you were looking for is WORD not work and it's also syllable.
Oh and history is three syllables his-to-ry.
Keep it up. You're really portraying all Norwich fans in a positive light and really educating us Yorkshire folk.
Snodgrass would cost anything from 3 - 8 mill by the way.Snodgrass woudl easily choose a contract offer from Norwich over one from Leeds. But don't agree with the fee though, Bates would never accept that. Considering we can get him on a free in the summer, i don't think we should pay any more than 2.5-3 million if we do sign him this month8 million? He has 6 months left on his contract, no club would pay that. But knowing Bates that's what he probably wants, even though he'll be joining us on a free at the end of the season. OTBC!He signed a 4 year contract in Aug 2009. I think you'll find that his contract will end in 2013.
3 - 8 mill and you can have him.Guys, I am a Norwich fan, and while I agree he will not leave for £1.5M, he will almost certainly leave at season end if not before, will he eventually come to Norwich who knows?, But Lambert is keen on him.
But before you start on the educational prowess of Norfolk Folk, please consider toning down your responses then you will find others respond in kind. The site is meant to allow rumours to be posted in a general forum, not to trade cheap insults about each other's club, after all we all clearly love football that's why we use the site....I think the original post about him joining up with ex-colleagues, is referring to him joining up with hoolahan and Paul Lambert.
the 3 of them were together at Livingston.

hey ed ... i keep hearing about torres putting transfer request in , firstly have you heard anything and secondly , he supposed to only want to come back to anfield or athletico which makes me suspicious over the rumours as he could go and may want to go to a bigger spanish club and not just move for sentiment ... anything on the grapevine ...cheers {Ed001's Note - it's just rubbish.}(4)(12)

Cheeky bids to test the water anticipated.(9)(4)I like the look of Humphrey, not helped at Motherwell buy the useless Striker they have there, if he finds a club who move the ball quickly, it will suit his game, Forest or Leicester would be a great move for him.They can take him he's rubbish anyway!

Manchester united to get sneijder in a swap with nani .(12)(39)Not true. Sneijder will not be leaving Inter Milan while they are in the Champions League. A possible exit could come in the summer if Inter are still struggling.Rubbish !Not a man u fan ok
but this is rubbish why would united get rid of there best wing.Best winger obviously you dont watch utd and dont watch him playing he is crap the balls he sends over are sh-t even rooney thinks so valenciar gives the best crossesClearly you dont watch football or nani play. he is the best winger at the club and has been the best player this season. okay he hasn't been great the past 3 games, but name a utd player who has!His crossing is not great but his general wing play is Good and yes i would agree he is your best winger. and fyi his crossing he was uniteds (and i think the leagues) top assists last season

Cheltenham Town have turned down 2 bids for Marlon Pack and Sido Jombati. The Pack bid has come from Reading for £175,000 plus a choice of loan players. Jombati bid of £70,000 coming from Wycombe. Both bids have been turned down by Cheltenham.(7)(5)

Aston Villa have now joined the race for Gary Hooper of Celtic after a possible snag with insurance for loan move of Robbie Keane. Mcleish has told coaching staff around the club they need a ''fox in the box'' to which Hooper certainly is the best out there under 10 million.
Expect a bid to match Southampton's (not yet formerly bid but will happen in coming days) and again as stated earlier watch some movement from Sunderland.(2)(21)Fox in the box ha ha,far to slow for eplUnder 10m..., says who exactly?
cos i guarantee celts wont sell for anything less than 10mSurely Darren Bent qualifies as a fox in the box type of striker?
We don't need any rubbish from north of the border thankyou!I think you will find your captain came from north of the border, clown!


09 Jan 2012 15:36:32
Cardiff city will up their bid for noone to 900,000-1m with maybe a player going the other way. If Malky does not succeed with him he will look at kebe. Then will look at bringing in cox and mucgugan in! With cox on loan for rest of the season(3)(7)


09 Jan 2012 15:36:11
Arsenal and Liverpool are favorites to sign Nathan Redmond from Birmingham City a fee around £7 million.

Birmingham are willing to cash in on England under 21 goalkeeper Jack Butland but want upwards of £3 million. If they fail to get a buyer they will allow him to return on loan to Cheltenham Town to gain more experience before making him 1st choice next season.(4)(15)Redmond is a Villa fan and wants to join them but birmingham have also asked for 17 million and Jack Butland also wants to join cheltenham on loan utv and utcNathan Redmond is a Birmingham city fan.
Bcfc have put a £10 million price tag so your wrong on both accounts.

Hi Ed. Do you see any truth to the rumor that Alonso Is coming back to Liverpool and maxi and kuyt are on the way out? {Ed001's Note - no, yes and yes.}(10)(11)Xabi Alonso is happy at Real Madrid and has no intention of leaving this season although that could change if Real lose the league. Kuyt could be out of the door providing Liverpool find a suitable replacement. Ivica Olic's name has come up on more than one occasion since the Bayern man is out of favour and is looking for first team opportunities. however if Liverpool are to make the move, they would have to stump up 7-15m and also face a battle with Lazio for his signature - ATYes and if he does leave Real Madrid because they don't win the league he is going to go back to Liverpool because they have a great chance of winning the league and also being in the champions league next year haha!


09 Jan 2012 15:28:21
Gary Hooper
Martin O'neil has expressed his interest in the 23 year old Celtic striker and has been forced to bring forward his meeting regarding the player after learning of Southampton's aggressive move for him. A bid has not been made yet for Hooper but expect one in coming 2 days in the region of 6.5 million for the south coast side.Sundeland will feel they have the edge wages wise in a possible battle for his services but Gary is keen to move closer to his family if he leaves Parkhead.
Celtic are secretly welcoming a big money move for their hitman , but PR wise will continue to say he is not for sale and try and pin it on Hooper wanting to leave which he doesn't....just wants a new contract in line with the high earners in squad.(7)(17)Hoopers valuation should be around 10 mill plus, if Rangers value Jelavic at 9-10 mill, then Hooper is roughly the same value or more as he is a better all round player
once again, rubbish english clubs with no chance of winning anything or even playing in europe, trying to get players on the cheapCortesse is too shrewd to part with that sort of cash for that particular player.....Hooperman will stay celt 100%What a lot of mince!Total rubbish in one way he wants to be nearer his family and then you say he doesn't want to leave which one is it?I don't even think there are any players in Scotland even worth anywhere near 9-10mill?! Nobody North of the border can compare quality in SPL to EPL? Eg. David Healy & Anthony Stokes couldn't even get a game for SAFC reserves, yet they start every week for Rangers & Celtic! Enough said.What is southsmptons aggressive move if they have not even bid yet!! Not exactly aggressive!!

Also, £10 million! You having a laugh? He is a player from the Scottish prem! He came from league 1, where players like sharp and fryatt had a better record. Sharp is going to Leicester for £3 million and fryatt is joe average at Hull and worth barely a £1 million fee!
Just because he has played for Celtic it doesn't mean he automatically commands a big fee! Put it this way, Boyd and McDonald scored goals for fun in Scotland but in the championship were both average to rubbish!Answer to all your replies.... Hooper would be sold for 7 million and that really is good business for Celtic...Martin O'neill has been researching and scouting Hooper for last 3 weeks...I stated that if Gary was leave Celtic he would rather be nearer his family . Celtic have refused all contract negotions over last 3 weeks with the player ...that isn't something you do to keep a prolific striker on a contract far inferior to 4-5 of the other team players.
Arthur4m absolute tops!! Bar the Old Firm the rest of the SPL is the equivalent in quality to League One in England. That's not a dig, just a fact. Any more than 4m then we're better off bidding for Rodrigues from Burnley, The Duke from Coventry or looking outside of Britain.More BS....give it up you lot, hooper's going nowhere this window, and certainly not for less than 10m. like it or lump it, thats the price you're going to have to pay.Hooper has played and scored in european competition, think this is a step up from the championship, so would be worth more than the Sharps and Fryatts you mention...Oh, i forgot to add, he had a better scoring record than your 35m tattie Carroll, and if i'm not mistaking, both played in the same division at the same time, carroll has got even worse, whereas hoopers game has improved immensely, so shove your pathetic valuations up yer jacksie10 Jan 2012 08:57:24

Must be headlines that he is the first human to be in two places at one time! Sharp was actually at Leicester again today where he has agreed his contract. He will be officially unveiled on weds. Sorry saints fans, done deal! You lot all speak about the players that you are going to sign on here, Leicester actually go and get them!I dont think we ever made a move for him this jan. He made it clear he wasn't gonna move south in the summer.Jo? he's happily playing in brazil isn't he? why on earth would he go to doncaster? he'd easily get in half of premiership clubs...

Wolves are looking to strengthen upfront with Doyle and Ebanks- Blake not scoring the nesscary goals. Super Mick McMcarthy sees Emile Heskey as the ideal goal scoring partner for Fletcher in the region of £2.5 million. It is not known whether Mcleish is willing to sell his star player.(8)(13)Isnt he injured?Star player? good one. He's out of contract in the summer, take him he's yours.Heskey and ideal goal scoring shouldnt be used in the same sentence"star player" is that a joke?Doyle and ebanks blake are so much better than Heskey, if he was villa's star player he'd be worth like £20m upwards you fool!You silly steptoe

"As part of the Scout team at West Brom, i have heard about the Comings And Goings. Most Players are happy at WBA at the moment so they will not be many departs but Roman Bednar will leave for Brighton for a fee around £1mill, and Billy Jones also Departing too the Championship with Doncaster. West Brom will make a few bids, Hodgson will delve into the market and make a 2Mill bid for Jason Puncheon, followed by trying to gain a loan deal for Owen Hargreaves and Frimpong. they will also make a sneaky bid for newcastles james perch and Rangers Kyle Lafferty. Overall they are only willing to spend £9Million"

Who is the pathetic little boy who really thinks we believe he is a member of WBA scouting network? If you really were, do you have any idea how counter-productive it would be detailing transfer targets on a rumour website? You an absolute plonker and a compulsive liar who makes a mockery of this site. You're not a scout, people who scout for premiership clubs dont sit in there parents spare room revealing supposed transfer dealings, which by the way are clearly Bs because frimpong has signed elsewhere. I worry about people like you because you clearly have mental health problems and feel the need to inflict your own fantasies on other members of society.(16)(7)I am a scout, but not the guy above! Also, I do not scout for any prem teams... :(Bit Harsh !TBH I am a Wolves fan and when I see deluded stuff like this it is easy to tell who wrote this also the baggies do similar things , just a wind up really.

i think liverpool have a better chance of signing hoilett as his agent said that he would fit in better here as there is more playing time in here (no left wing downings better on right) spurs have bale dos santos and modric that would makethe cut over him. personally hes right.

as well ""rumour"" has it we have put in a bid that was accepted for him and we are doing a medical,, rumour bid was 5 mil plus add ons or 7 mil... once again this last part was rumour(7)(13)Dos santos will be leaving spurs and reports are that hoilett fancy a spurs move more than his agent fancys a liverpool the momentThere are a number of Blackburn players who have "get-out" clauses in the event of relegation. Hoilett is one of them. Yakubu is another. {Ed001's Note - Hoilett's contract is up in the summer anyway.}He wont even be a reg in the lpool squad and he knows it he signe for a smaller club for regular footyDo your research mate, modric isn't a winger he just played there a few times 2 years ago, dos santos is most definitely leaving and persides he's a right winger come forward, you could have atleast said lennon, bale, rose, townsend, pienear, kranjkar and van der vaart CAN all play that position...^^ came here to say the same.

Nathan Redmond is at Man City's training ground and he is to sign by the weekend for £15m from Birmingham City.(7)(25)What a rip off, I got him for 2.8 mil on FM!Why would anyone pay 15M for this player.

he looks like a half decent prospect but that is it, would pay a max of 3M for him.

He has pace but doesnt know when to pass the ball, tries and tries to take on to many defenders and most of his passes are not completed and most of all he is always out of position.

he needs a good 2 years before the likes of a PL club would pay that amount, but he must improve on the above that I have mentioned to stand a chance.Rubbish.

Reading have resigne dboth youn keepers till 2015 and Adam Fedrici's contract is untill 2013. One of the two young keepers will gp out on loan. McCarthy being the obvious choice to Leicester.

There is no way in hell Shane Long is coming back to the club unless west brom get relegated and Reading get promoted.

Jimmy Kebe is likely to move in the Jan window with a possible medical with West Ham lined up after appering in the a recent game to prove his fitness(8)(3)McCarthy already joined IpswichMc carthey already gone sure it was to ipswich ?Mcarthy's gone to ipswich for three months

His stables and Horses mean more to him than regular first team football. Sad but true I'm affraidCan see some of these happening.
Think Owens a non starter though.Cant see the owen thing.

Liverpool have agreed a fee with both Real Madrid and Barcelona for the return of Xabi Alonso & Javier Mascherano.
Commolli has been in spain and met representititves over the last 3 days. The deal is meant to be worth £40 million for them both with maxi rodriguez going back to atletico madrid to raise some funds. They are offerering around £6 million for the argentinian international.(12)(37)Again, Alonso has no intentions to leave Real Madrid as they continue to close the gap on Barcelona. Javier Mascherano has been monitored by other clubs in recent months but it is very unlikely that Barcelona will sell without buying a viable replacement as his departure would leave them light in that area. I haven't heard anything about Maxi Rodriguez but Atletico Madrid are close to signing a deal for the return of Reyes. As far as I know, he is the only returning player AM are looking at. - ATHAHA I'd love Alonso back considering he's nominated for the best player in the world along with Messi and Ronaldo. He ain't going NOWHERE!It's Xavi Hernandez that's nominated for the ballon d'or, not Xabi alonso. And neither would move to Liverpool from their respective clubs. Ever.Alonso is a key player for Madrid this is never gonna happen son! he is arguable more important than Ronaldo as there is no1 that can replace him where as there are a mass of attackers (not at Ronaldo's level obviously but that would bag alot of goals)No need of macheranoSorry girls to disapoint you but a spanish paper with strong conections to real have conformed alonso is being edged out and he would love to play in england again maybe chelsea city or would he return to anfield -dont think they av that money about but you never know.

Derry might go though£150k is pittence you moron.For one game maybe, Derry wont go with Ale out for the season, and DJ hasn't really had his opertuntiy through illness, injury and bad luck so be shocked to see him go and put another 0 on the end and you may have chance

Harry Redknapp is naive to Tomkins' ability and therefore too stubborn to pay the amount Allardyce will want for him. Therefore no such deal will take place.Fairly certain Rhodes will be leaving Huddersfield, but not to West Ham. He'll be in the Premiership come February, probably with either QPR, Norwich or Swansea.Naive to tomkins ability? typicial bloody west ham fan.. just because he's a player and he's decent it doesn't mean he's amazing i think redknapp a PROFESSIONAL football manager with trained scouts will know better than you...Rhodes to Norwich for me if he goes anywhere hope not but pilks went there and clarky would probably rather him go to norwich - ed u know any replacements for jord? {Ed001's Note - I don't think he will be going, but I know Huddersfield have an interest in Vardy in case he does.}West ham are the only team to put in a bid for rhodes

United will look to bolster their attack by making a bid for German superstar 'Mario Gotze' with the deal thought to be worth around £43 million(8)(25)As were Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Juventus, that is until Gotze said he loved Dortmund and didnt want to leave, before extending his contract till the end of 2014. So I really don't like your chances there.Highly unlikely since Mario has already agreed to fulfil his contract with Dortmund until 2013 with an option to extend by a year some time soon. A lot of young German players are doing their best not to move abroad pending the outcome of the Euro 2012 competition. If Germany win, there's every chance the DFB will want to shield the league's best young Germans from foreign clubs prying eyes. Furthermore, the signing of Marco Reus from Gladbach signals intent from Dortmund. They are not a selling club and other BuLi sides have sat up and taken notice. It's going to be very difficult for clubs to pry away talent from Germany now. - ATThe glasers are skint youve no chance in 5 years youll be were liverpool are or have been or were glasgow rangers are close to being please wake up and small the coffee

I would love to see Billy Sharp come down here, but cannot see it happening. As usual, bush rumours on here - try posting some with a little bit behind them!Right because the bloke that cuts the grass is always involved in contract talks,And the groundsman would obviously know that?????

Siphiwe Tshabalala will sign for crystal Palace on Thursday after already impressing on trial. Palace have agreed a fee of around 125k with Kaiser chiefs for the Bafana Bafana Star.(10)(7)Kaiser chiefs described rangers' offer of £100k and insult. he will not go for that littleThey wanted at least a £1m when Forest took him on trial in the summerHis contract runs out in May so its either 125k now or free in 4months

Jelavic will move for £8/9mil. Broadfoot for
pennies really, we will bring in HOPEFULLY,
Sandaza £400,000, Russell £500,000, and a
top drawer european striker like Jelavic for the
same £4M he cost, then the funds left can help
money problems.(9)(29)I wish but thats not happening...i will pay for broadfoot to go anywhere and drive him there myself...even let him in the front seat if hes luckyCant see any big signings at ibrox. £1m deals may happen but nothing ig until the tax case is heard. also see company suspended from trading on the stock exchange. not looking good.Lmao......Rangers getting 4m to spend on a striker. Read the news, the club is bankrupt, little of any of the £5-£6.5m that Jelavic goes for will be spent on players......Lmao......Rangers getting 4m to spend on a striker. Read the news, the club is bankrupt, little of any of the £5-£6.5m that Jelavic goes for will be spent on players......There is no chance of getting 8/9 million for Jelevic. Interested parties have baulked at the asking price, no offers on the table at present. Maybe towards the end of the window when clubs get desperate Rangers can screw a few more quid out of interested parties but i cant see a fee being more than 6/7 million. There are also suggestions that Rapid Vienna also have a 30% sell on clause so no money to spend even if he does go!

Lets face it, Jelevic is off form and clubs want players bang in form in the January Window. 7 goals this season(not counting penalties) is hardly setting the SPL alight!

You are right about Broadfoot - Pennies!

About 700K for Edu is about right tooThis Broadfoot rumour won't go away. Just hope he goes to Leeds and not to Ashton Gate - We don't want him either.Russell for £500K? I very much doubt it. When are Rangers fans goning to realise that they can no longer force Scottish clubs into selling their best prospects for pennies when they can sell them to lower league English clubs for more money? Get a grip, lad!Il tell you right now Rapid Vienna DONT have a 30% sell on clauseTake a lot more than the change of that to sort rangers money problems, may sell the stadium!Sandaza is the only player to be linked with Rangers so far in the current transfer window.Source SSN£500,000 for Johnny Russell - who are you kidding blue boy? Away to your room where you and your Action Man can dream some more. IF Russell goes anywhere it will be down south - both for money and real career prospects. The days of young naive Scottish footballers being duped into thinking that signing for Rangers is in any way going to strengthen their reputation are, thankfully, well and truly over. By the way, big man, youse have been banned from trading - Happy New Year!

Noone to Cardiff ? Well, if they table a figure around the £1,500,000 mark maybe. However Noone loves it at Brighton, Brighton don't need the money and frankly, have Cardiff got that sort of money ? Cardiff might have a few more points currently but they are likely to struggle in the doubtful event of them getting promoted unless they get a large injection of cash to offset their current debts. Brighton on the other hand are very solvent, due to incrase their capacity by 30% in the close season and not having any debts thanks to Tony Bloom.

Cardiff would be at the very best, a step sideways.(7)(13)You know nothing of cardiff's finances ...and why are they likely to struggle...the malaysians have paid off quite a bit of debt and PMG have converted 6million into shares...dont speculate ...NOONE WILL BE OURS
AND IT IS DEFINITLEY AN UPWARD STEP...FA CUP fINALISTS 2008 SEMI FINALSTS LEAGUE CUP 20102...2PTS OFF TOP.....A step sideways? Cardiff are challenging for promotion, and unless Poyet stops trying to force players who clearly aren't good enough to play like Barcelona, to attempt to play like Barcelona then Brighton may well get relegatedI can see Noone coming to Cardiff personally, in exchange for another player and moneyCardiff are owned by two malaysians one being vincent tan worth an estimated 1.2 billion and dato chan worth 700 mil havent got money , obviously not . on a good note where heading upwards are your clearly heading the other way . hell when we beat palace this week we only need to get man city in the final win or lose to guarentee a uefa cup spot , step sideways i think not .Cardiff are backed by a multi billionaire so we are so much better off than solvent

Madine to Huddersfield from Sheffield Wednesday to Huddersfield quoting Ive always wanted to play for a massive club like Huddersfield (11)(19)Really?? he wants to go from playing infront of 18-20k+ fans every week to struggling to get 14k??? massive club yeah, that why they have never been in the premiership and sepnt the last 6 years or so in the same division!I think you will find Wednesday are a bigger club than HuddersfieldYea of course he one could ever call hudders anything but a small club in a small town.I'm a blade so hate to say it but, Wednesday are a much bigger club than huddesfield will ever be.
So dream on..My quotes were totally mis-interpreted. I actually said that SWFC are MASSIVE and that Huddersfield are a tin pot club with no fans.My quotes were totally mis-interpreted. I actually said that SWFC are MASSIVE and that Huddersfield are a tin pot club with no fans.Im not a wednesday fan or huddersfield fan but wednesday are a much bigger club.Madine wouldnt even get in the team at huddersfield. might not been in prem league but been in top division for more seasons won the first division more time, got more money than you, and if we're so bad how cum swfc chasing our player ( roberts) take him he's league 1 level only. which is where ur staying,dint we do the double on u last season, score 4 at hillboro this season,will see whos small when we playing championship nxt season with the blades! see u in april wen we wallop u and seal automatic! tired of u swfc fans still talking about a couple of seasons in prem league where you got hammered every weekJust 6 yrs in L1!!

They can probably afford quite a few £190,000 players now!The poster that says Bournemouth can't afford £190,000 needs to do their homework.

But it's not Eastwood anyway.

Coventry have been linked with a loan for Simon Cox (WBA) or Adam Le Fondre (Reading).

Both strikers are said to be looking for first team football, and Coventry would certainly give them that although wages would be a massive stumbling issue.

Could just be lazy journalism after we tried to sign both players before they moved to WBA and Reading respectively, but we definitely need a goal scorer if Juke goes!(3)(6)No no no le fondre to good

Paper talk pure rubbish ok some true news.

Tom Huddlestone will join Fulham on loan untill end of season.

Demba ba Will not leave Newcastle but will move in the summer to Liverpool Fee Around £8 million.

Frank Lampard will leave Chelsea but not for Manchester but instead for spain to real madrid.

And the big player Tottenham will bring in will be
Kaka this will happen as spurs will give madrid first option should Gareth bale available for transfer.

Belive what you like AND don't shot the messenger.

Nemesis=1=(12)(23)Demba Ba won't sell for £8 millionUtter rubishLiverpool i think will sign demba ba but 8m ? no! this release clause is 10m and newcastle said they would not accept anything under 10m but have no words if its 10m or higher because his release clause is 10m so i think there will be alot of clubs looking for him and liverpool might buy him because they need a good young premier league player.Why would Liverpool pay £8m if Ba's release clause is around £5m?Huddlestone wont go on loan..

and i wonder how spurs willafford kaka's wagesLiverpool will not buy demba ba. just bad rumour. he do not fit the profile, he will fail medical, and there for cant be insured.Demba ba would be a great signing for liverpool. hes a great target man up front on his own and liverpool like getting to ball into the box.I would hazard a guess as to how spurs would or could pay kakas wages? they have the money from huttons wages, bentleys wages, jenas' wages (although he is injured villa signed him on a seasons loan and so still have to pay his wages), keanes wages, naughtons wages, part of townsends wages, so if you add up all those wages you would recieve a nice weekly income affordable to future playersEr he did say paper talk pure rubbish!!Tom Huddlestone is heading to QPR on loan for the rest of the season. Demba Ba could leave Newcastle for PSG. Frank Lampard is indispensable to Chelsea and shall not be moving anywhere this year. Kaka will only go to AC Milan on loan should the opportunity for an exit arise. Gareth Bale looks certain to be staying at Spurs but his future club hinges on who becomes the Welsh National Team manager. If the FAW get their man, there's every chance Bale will be part of a deal between Spurs and Manchester United involving player(s) + cash.Re: the argument above about how they will afford his wages, bear in mind that at least half (if not more) of Adebayor's wages are being paid by Man City as Spurs couldn't afford them....kind of blows that argument away.Huddlestone's going nowhere he's an important player for tottenham but that aside he won't even be ready to play till some time in Feb at the earliest

Mourinho has said he wants Kaka to stay and the most likely destination if he does move is PSGNot really, he could join if he takes a pay cut if he goes on loan spurs have a wage structure which they have stuck to for the moment, even with adebayor spurs only pay to their max, city cover the rest, same can and could be applied to yes they could afford him, so it doesnt as you say blow it out the water...Why would demba ba sign for liverpool, they are a 2nd tier team..he won't leave the toon for anyone bar man utd, no point going to citeh as wouldn't get in the team and he doesn't enjoy london life so that rules out arsenal and chelsea

The drums are beating for the exit of Lee Clark - it is rumoured nothing will change this happening. Chairman Dean Hoyle is thought to have decided that even after 'The Jordan Rhodes Show' on Friday at Wycombe Clark should leave the club.
Huddersfield are exploring the situation with Karl Robinson at MK Dons and teaming him with an experienced old head as Director of Football - such as Neil Warnock/Peter Reid type. Much has been made of Rhodes's future and when he leaves (not if) next seasons wage cap will mean his fee will need to be spent before these new regulations come in. Replacement for Rhodes is a must and Rob Hulse is one player who is available and could do a job for them as is Billy Sharp. Watch this Space!!(4)(7)Why would Sharp even thinking of going to a League 1 club,Only way clark will be leaving there is to go into managed much higher...hes worked wonders with minowsFUNNY, some people will make up any thing to post on here, try to make it abit more beliveble though.Huddersfield are third in League one, are playing good football and look good bets for promotion. Yeah, Clark's definitely got to go then, hasn't he? Tool.Don't think clarke will leave! unless town dont go up + he's best mates with hoyle (chairman) but whoever thinks he's worked wonders with minnows should know what he's on about b4 opening his mouth.. lee clark spent far 2 much money not t get town promoted blew it last year with bad selections and wrong tactics HTFC by far good enuff 4 top half of championship NOW! lee clark will scrape automatic place this year but mainly down to player quality. clark will be gud coach in a few years time maybe with town

Hi Ed, have you heard any genuine transfer targets for Norwich. Any ideas if the speculation over Maynard, Matt Phillips or Rhodes is true? Or are those names wide of the mark? {Ed001's Note - Maynard and Matt Phillips are true, not sure on Rhodes though. I also heard you were looking at some young lad in the Bundesliga, not sure who it is though. I am guessing Lambert must still keep a close eye on the league there and spotted someone. Oh and he was described as a young lad, so I would assume that means he is 23 or younger myself, though that is not definite. I am trying to find out who you have had scouted, see if I can narrow down which team he plays for a bit!}(5)(3)Yeah i heard that norwich were looking at coutinho for inter milanCoutinio would be class!I want Rhodes at Norwich soooooo bad tho!

liverpool to sign jordan rhodes from huddersfield for 4.5m plus ad ons of 1m after 50 games, 1m after 15 international caps 1m after 25 goals(15)(31)Very good in league one, doubt he'll be quite as prolific in the premier league. can't see any truth behind thisI agree I don't think he would be very effective in prem just yet, with further development no doubt but if he's rushed into it i fear that it'll be too much too soonHaha this sort of deal stinks of Football Manager, who knows, we may even throw in a friendly too!25 league goals already(xmas) at 21 yrs old not good enuff for liverpool... how many goals was andy carroll scoring at championship level just over a year ago... defo wasnt even 15 in full season if thats the case and carrolls worth 35m rhodes must be worth 50m!!1 ha {Ed001's Note - 17 in the Championship + 2 in the cup, he scored 11 in 19 in the half season back in the Prem as well.}I agree too much football manager mate...17 goals in the championship full season then ye?Oh ye is it 3 this year aswell? well worth it!!

i'm a norwich fan but some other fans do come out with a load of rubbish. Whever your getting your rubbish from its not offical the board and lambert like to keep it close and we only find out about a player if there having a medical or have signed. So stop comming out with all the rubbish about snoddy and rhodes when you dont even know if its true. Also stop pulling all these random figures out your arse, everyone knows players will cost more in january.(8)(8)I agree with you. Most of the norwich rumours on here are a bit embarrassing. Having said that I was told the rumour about Snodgrass from Leeds fans who claim to have contacts at Elland Road so personally I do think there may be something in that one, especially as he is out of the contract at the end of the season and Leeds are being linked with a different winger every day of the week!Calm down sonSnoddy is out of contract at the end of next season and we never replaced our other winger/striker gradel thats why we are looking at wingers. bates has said it is up to grayson if a player gets sold or not and grayson said he will only consider offers of £8million+...therefore any norwich fan thinking this should stop their bcks and get facts rightAgreed. Norwich attracted no significant, big-money signings in the summer, so why should they in January? There is even less chance of it happening. The only good player that Norwich have signed, not counting Naughton, is Anthony Pilkington, and that was a lucky fluke.
wallyAll the Turkeys are getting a bit excited!Erm because we are in the top half of the prem and looking likely to stay there. Also given that Snodgrass is out of contract in the summer Bates (whatever he might say) will clearly be tempted by a half decent offer in this window. Finally as for our signings Pilks has done well but actually most of them have been impressive. Morison has been fantastic, Bennett looks very good, Johnson has probably only been surpassed as a free transfer by Ba this season and Ayala, after an initial injury, looks a class act. Suggest you watch our team play a bit before passing judgment in future.The comments from the Leeds fans suggest a little envy on your part, to suggest the signing of Pilkington was luck is garbage, Norwich jumped in before he had fully recovered from his serious injury, while other potential clubs in prem were waiting to see if he had made a full recovery. Lambert had been watching him for months prior to Injury and while there was a risk attached to get in early there was never any doubt about the lads ability. As the previous guy said there have been a number of really good signings in the last 2 seasons without spending a fortune, Morrison, Ayala, Naughton(loan)Bennett, Tierney, Martin and of course Bradley Johnson(free) etc, who have all stepped up to prem level and appear to be relishing the opportunity to play for Lambert. Some of these guys have improved beyond all recognition.
I will resist getting involved in a slanging match,but guys using expletives and insults do nothing for the credibility of your post and frankly suggest a lack of education.

Hi all, up until yesterday Jelavic was going to be on his way to QPR. Everton have now seriously come in for the player.
Now almost certain to join the toffee's.
Jack Rodwell will definately not be moving this transfer window.
By the way I'm not a supporter of either. Just thought I'd post what I was told this morning by someone.

Supasub(12)(7)Nothing on any web-sites linking Jelavic with Everton


09 Jan 2012 09:47:51
Sunderland forawrd Stephane Sessegnon is a reported target for Everton(10)(30)And how can everton afford 20+m for sunderlands best player who will only go back to france if his family cannot settle in the north eastWorst rumour i have heard this window. Everton have no money and liverpool looks nothing like france.


09 Jan 2012 09:47:01

John Sheridan is to leave chesterfield today he is not being sacked as such but feels he cant ake chesterfield any further and its going to be published as mutual agreement to leave

this will please 95 percent of chesterfied fans who cant believe he has lasted this long with 16 games without a win(5)(12)Where you heard this? I hope you are right!Heard that Glenn Roeder could be lined up as replacement.


09 Jan 2012 09:41:44
Tottenham's Ledley King has torn a hamstring in training, meaning that not only will Spurs definitely be signing a central defender this window, but Bassong will be going absolutely nowhere.(5)(7)


09 Jan 2012 09:38:40
I have it on very good authority from within the club that Nigel Adkins No 1 target is Gary Hooper. He sees him as the man to partner Rickie and achieve the ambitions of the club gaining promotion to the premier league.

Nigel also has not given up hope on Nathaniel Clyne or Albert Adomah.(15)(14)Gary Hooper will cost you at least £2 million, he's been banging them in for CelticAdomah will cost you a few bob, he's got a decent contract and is flying at the moment2 million?.behave.paid 2.5 for him n he has not stopped scorin since.he wont b sold unless an offer of crazy money comes in.99% sure he wont be leaving paradise thoughU missed out a 1 mate 2 million lol we paywed more than that

daviebhoy08Pie in the sky daydreaming in Southampton! Can't see why any of those 3 would sign for you when they all have Premiership sides looking at them.I can see why Premiership clubs would get him before SFc, but lets be honest the SPL is about League 1 quality. Celtic are in a poor league. All they have is a good following.What authority is that head of the fan club? give us all a break and don't make up rubbish...All I have stated is that the No 1 Target is Gary Hooper. Subsequent to that Lennon then confirmed we had made contact with your team. So Believe me when I say I have it on good authority.

We need a striker howz about Forsell on loan as part of the deal.You can have forsell for the price of the lads train ticket if you want


09 Jan 2012 08:55:21
kompany red card agree or disagree(39)(46)Great tackle, never a red card.Agree, but referees need to be consistent with the ruling!! I don't support united by the way lol.....I agree , he was red carded.2 footed end of story :)2 feet off the ground........enough saidNot a red at all shame ya can't say the same for FOY the refereeing in the prem is poor and so inconsistent , city come out of that with a moral victory and will push on n win the title.No it wasent roony is a disgraceDoesnt matter what every Tom, Dick, roberto or Alex thinks. the rules state you cant show studs and have both feet off the ground. He didnt connect therefore does that make it alright? Get over it.No way was that a red card!The records will show that it was a red card and a United win. How anyone can say it is a disgrace but cannot spell themselves is beyond me!!Right, if it was the other way around and it was Man Utd who committed the same tackle and was red carded (which would never happen, let's face it, you would not be saying "two feet enough said".Rooney should have been booked for his blatent interference in the decisionLook at the United fans making out like the refs have never done them any favours over the years lolDidn't even merit a yellow, he won the ball with right instep, ref nowhere near blowing whistle until spoilt brat Rooney stepped in. Only on replay possible yellow for trailing leg comoing in late. Watford to beat Spurs {Ed025's Note - rooney did exactly what mancini did last week!...people who live in glass houses..and all that.Look at Frank Lampard's tackle last week, compare it to Company's, then look at the punishment dished out for each to see everything that is wrong with referreing at the moment.

Lampard should have been red carded, Company should not.Rules state if its reckless, its yellow. reckless with excessive force is red. therefore, at worst it was yellow! foy is out to help utd any way he can after seeing some of his performances this season!Technically yes it was a red but in context with some of the shocking tackles that some players have got away with no it shouldnt have been 1 there was no contact with player only with ball! the refereeing and rules need looking at and need to be sorted sooner rather than later.There will be egg of Foy's face once the red has been resinded, absolutely ruined a good game, i have a feeling Rooney will get a big backlash when him and Kompany meet again, remember Roy Keane's challenge on Alfie, same could happen hereAlthough i would like to see his ban stay as i am a spurs fan i think the dission is disgraceful it was not even a bad tackle ive seen worst not get a card


09 Jan 2012 08:39:36
nick montgomery of sheffield united could be going to either 1 of these clubs, derby county,nottingham forest,burnley,birmingham,leeds according to the sheffield star(7)(6)


09 Jan 2012 08:36:48
Saints will complete the signing of Hooper from celtic-5.5m and clyne from palace-2.5m by the end of the week(20)(32)Utter nonsence,wake up! leave a Giant club that compete's in Europe for a team that will never achieve anything....PleaseAbsolute rubbishHooper wants to play in the premiership, not just Old Firm derbies.Plays in Europe - a couple of games against teams from Malta and Switzerland then back to games against Kilmarnock and Dunfermline. Hmmm must be great.Malta?? try italy, spain and france diddy!

anyways, not going to happen, and certainly not for such an insulting amount eitherIf Hooper wants to play in the Premiership then why would he sign for Southampton, a club not guarenteed a place on the top table by any means yet? Esp when Premiership clubs like Newcastle, Sunderland, Villa, etc are said to looking at him.Don't get me started on the SPL utter rubbish. Why would he suffer all season in that drab league to lose to some decent European sides, and that's not even certain every year. Its been proven that quality of football is better in the Championship anyway, the amount of 'good' players from SPL come to this league and fail. Ha would rather go to championship table toppers any day.You aint got 8 millionAin't got 8 million!!?? Wot a muppet were the 5th richest club in country and have Alex oxo's money still 2 spend. That said we won't break our salary cap so can't see him coming that's why we didn't get sharp in August!Hooper to leave diawari to come in plus pederson as he wants to leave blackburn plus celtic make 2.5 million bid for chamberlin as he looking regular playing time


09 Jan 2012 08:35:22
ed help! you all keep saying Bristol City are to lose Nicky Maynard, Albert Adomah, Bret Pitman, Jon Stead, Liam Fontaine and James Wilson. But if this is all true why is there no rumours of anyone else coming in?? we have only signed Richard Foster from Aberdeen.(6)(8)


09 Jan 2012 08:34:10
Plenty of bitter people out there moaning about how stoke play football, or rugby as some people are calling it! The fact of the matter is we got to an fa cup final we got past the group stages in europe (the only english club to do so) and are sitting 8th in the league!! So what if you don't like our tactics the club is well run and we have a system that is working. There are way less goals scored from throw ins although it is still very route 1 just look at the players that came to stoke in the summer there is no way crouch would have gone to qpr or wolves or wigan or blackburn or bolton or wba or swansea or norwich just to name a few. also any type of premier league football is better than attractive championship football! And finally if you don't like stoke stop taking such a massive interest in them!(15)(12)Crouch has already played for Norwich! And it was Norwich who got his career back on track. He was doing nothing at Villa playing in the reserves and Norwich took him on loan. He started banging in the goals with other loan signing Huckerby. Norwich could only afford at the time to keep one permantly and Crouch went back to villa. He was then sold to Southampton and the rest is History. So why say he wouldn't of gone to Norwich or a few others. Your talking b!I agree sick of people pulling them down a lot of clubs would love to be in there positionIt is hardly he beautiful game,that is what people are saying nothing to do with bitterness.IMO.With all due respect to Stoke Pulis has you playing the way you do but no way could i go and watch that style of football every week its like watching teams in L2 as the majority of them play that way except Swindon and Gillingham of the teams ive seen so far.

Its a diabolical style of football but fair play to Pulis he hwas done well for Stoke the interesting thing would be of Pulis ever left how Stoke would do.The anti-christ of footballThe football you play is garbage but you cannot knock the achievement no matter how much you detest the methodsSwindon, Gillingham, Crawley and Southend all play a fast, attacking passing game in league 2 and they back it up with all being contenders for the title.. Stoke play better football than they used to but it's boring... i could have seen crouch go to wolves, blackburn or bolton if they had the money i think you're getting abit big for your boots mate.. The mickey mouse cup (Europa league) Spurs played a second rate team as did Fulham, Birmingham didn't quite cut it so yeah stoke were the only english team out of 2 that give one about the competition. They most probably won't win it because someone playing a slick attacking passing game will simply out class them...Pulis has got u playing like that and you've just kept climbing the table! simple! plus the players he's bought and the way the club is ran.... i wouldnt be a worried if i was a stoke fan! plus have started to change and actually play football a little, would rather be stoke fan at moment than wigan,bolton,blackburn,swansea and even teams like fulham and everton!Slick passing sides like arsenal and tottenham always do well at the brit don't they?oh maybe not.The number8 holds the ball well, the backs attack and pressure the ball, the wingers have genuine pace, great on line outs especially with the long throw, just need a decent scrum half to hold it all together..... can't argue though, Stoke are there on merit with a decent team.


09 Jan 2012 08:09:47
Manchester United have made a cheeky bid for Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott.(10)(43)I let them have him Walcott is a one trick pony all he is good at is running after a ball as long as he has 30 yards of space to run after it. When he takes a full back on he's lost what to do with it and his final ball is dreadful. A totally overrated player.Im a liverpool fan and no harsh feelings but man utd really ? who have giggs, nani, valencia & ashley young who could play in that position ? all 4 i mentioned are better then walcott so very unlikely. but liverpool need a good right wing plus his a liverpool fan.What will they pay him in vouchers for the megastore?


09 Jan 2012 08:08:52
Manchester City are interested in signing Newcastle hitman Demba Ba. The Senegal international has been in superb form for United and could seal a deal to the Premier League challengers, for around £25 million.(13)(39)Depending on who you believe ,his buy out clause is 5 to 10 million , so why would they offer £25 million ?Because there Man City so they 2,3,4x the price needed to show offHe has a buy out clause of 5-7m so 25m? you need helpWhy leave to sit on the bench?Why would he be sold for £25 million when he has a buy out clause set at £10 million? After Redknapp exposing the buy out clause I would expect a lot of interest in Ba. The only problem is that he is almost uninsurable due to a knee problem.No they don't, you're just jealous of their wealth!What a bunch of fools. Just because the buyout clause is !0 mill it doesn't mean the first team with an offer gets him! Since you know him so well are you even sure he wants to leave? He'll be getting paid as much to stay at the Toon as to play for the mighty soon to have a manager behind bars Spurs and any team wanting to buy him will have to pay a lot of money. If he leaves Newcastle will get a lot for him, never mind this 10 mill clause, loads and loads of players have them and get sold for loads more. Just worry about your own teams saddos.Ba will only leave Newcastle for French super-club, Paris Saint Germain at the end of the season. - ATThis makes me laugh, the team who have better, stronger, faster tall strikers ( dzeko & balotelli ) why would they offer 25m ? thats stupid. they wouldnt even offer 10m because they have better strikers. and when balotelli and dzeko dont play they play aguero up front nasri behind and silva and johnson beside nasri so no way in hell is city going to buy a player like ba.The buy out clause is exactly that and no there's a very few players who have them that low i think what you mean is players are sold below the buy out clause get your facts right..Does he not have a clause in his contract - reported £10 MILLION


09 Jan 2012 08:06:15
Dutch side Feyenord and French giants Lyon, have made a bid for Anderlecht striker Matias Suarez. The Aregtinian is also wanted by Arsenal but Feyenord and Lyon have both made bids worth around £7 million.(6)(5)

Yeovil are very close to signing Lewis Guy on a free transfer. Guy has just been released by League 1 rivals MK Dons, and the former Newcastle youngster will sign a one and a half year deal with the league strugglers.(6)(5)He is terrible from an mk fan

Hibernian are close to signing Bristol City defender James Wilson, on loan until the end of the season.(5)(10)PMSL what on loan considering he's 1 of city's main defenders I doubt it


09 Jan 2012 08:01:03
ed tell me if this is true - Bristol City are to see Nicky maynard leave to Swansea or West Brom, Albert Adomah to Newcastle or Stoke, Brett Pitman to Derby. {Ed025's Note - i believe the first one, the rest are speculation(6)(7)Maynard has had his day, happy to see him go. Pitman is shocking, Happy to see him go. we need to keep Adomah. Jon stead to be Bristol City main Striker, this would be a way forward.


09 Jan 2012 07:59:31

Albion boss Gus Poyet has warned Cardiff their interest in Craig Noone is "going nowhere".

The Argus revealed details earlier today of Cardiff's rejected £400,000 offer for the Seagulls' talented winger.

Poyet said: "People said to me in December are you expecting any offers for Nooney, for Dunky (Lewis Dunk)? I'm ready for anything because in football today you don't know.

"When you get an offer that means players are doing well but it's how you can control it, depending on the offer and the club wanting the player.

"The situation last January with Benno (Elliott Bennett and Norwich) was a nightmare for 20 days, unbearable. Let's see, maybe this one is easier.

"It's totally different. At the moment it's going nowhere. I don't know what is going to happen but what is true right now is they've got no chance.

"They would have to more than significantly up their offer."

Source Brighton evening argus.

What poyet mean Cardiff is shove it were the sun don't shine.
Gus cant control , he has said that he wants the move to cardiff and is not willing to budge ,cardiff have offered 700k but brighton are holding out for 1.2 m , expect the deal to go through tuesday , if its true whats been said for 1 m , gus has no time for players who dont wont to be at the club after the last fiasco , and plus cardiff being so much more of a bigger club you cant fault the player hes obviously ambitious

Absolute bcks, he doesn't want to leave! he loves it at brighton, you are deluded(4)(4)It's a done deal according to our end (city). We'll see thou! Quality player aswell.What an absolute load of tripe ! Ive never heard so much made up rubbish on this site then this pathetic, deluded & childish comment. Craig Noone has said no such thing that he wants to leave Brighton. Also, there is NO-WAY Cardiff City is an ‘ambitious move’. There is no evidence or statistical date records to say that Cardiff are a bigger club then Brighton. If anything, BRIGHTON are the team with the ambition and moving forward. Gus Poyet is a very shroud manager, he will do what is right for the club. If there is a substantial offer on the table then he’ll consider that when it happens. In the meantime, he’s going NOWHERE !! Again, an absolute pathetic comment.The only way Brighton is a bigger club than Cardiff is if your counting the number of United fans although its a close callNo stats apart from the league table?Cardiff's got a bigger fan base, a better history and a more stable financial situation.. However Brighton are an ambitious club and they could come up to the Premier League next season so i don't see why he'd want to leave.. Unless it was a Premier League club, West Ham or Southampton.. As for him being loyal he has stated he would leave if the right offer was on the cards, Poyet probably would sell if the player wanted to leave but the fee being stated here is some way off in my opinion he's got to be worth a good 3.5m as far as i've seen he's a class player with tremendous potential...


09 Jan 2012 07:31:27
Southampton have prepared a substantial bid for Argentinian international keeper Sergio Romero, currently plying his trade with Serie B strugglers Sampdoria. Romero is said to be considering his options with the prospect of a second straight season in the Italian second division looming.(8)(11)So he's going to leave a club in the second tier for a club in a different second tier, not yet guarenteed a seat at the top table by a long chalk? Mmmmmmm...He's a world class keeper very highly rated why on earth would he go to Southampton. maybe he meant to write Sunderland or Stoke...?


09 Jan 2012 07:01:36
Is it just me or are Norwich being linked with every player underf the sun?
You have done a good job in the Prem so far, but lets not get carried away. You were a League 1 side 2 years ago dont forget.
This from a totally un-biased Leicester fan.

(And before anybody replies, I know that Leicester seem to be the same, and its getting on my nerves. PLEASE NIGEL....BECKFORD OUT!!!)(5)(5)I agree,I'm a Norwich season-ticket holder.Some names and figures are unrealistic.I would like to see clubs the size of Norwich and Leicester challenge in the Premier League,because all you hear about are the 'big six' simply because they have deep pockets.A norwich fan here aswell... i agree, some names that have been linked are simply...stupid!Beckford to Leeds again he's a legend so you should respect himI think Norwich have been a breath of fresh air this season,i'm a Burnley fan and would hope that my club look at yours as an example,hope u stay up and hope we join u there soon,well done.Beckford a legend? Don't make me laff fella, I'm sick of watching an over rated first div striker, striker being the thing,, he's lazy, first touch woeful, and we have enough donkeys being carried at the KP stadium, so your welcome to taking him back my freind


09 Jan 2012 06:47:34
Australian international and Rangers FC midfielder Matt McKay looks set to join Leeds United. McKay has failed to cement his spot in the side since joining in August 2011 and it is not believed to be down to playing ability. Leeds are very lucky to be signing this talent. Matty has not been given a fair go at Ibrox, and now desires in seeking other pastures.(13)(10)


09 Jan 2012 06:30:43
very good source ipswich: paul jewell is definately looking at littlehampton striker(3)(2)Littlehampton striker....which one? I'm guessing Jason Jarvis, due to his goal record, but i'd like to know who you mean!


09 Jan 2012 06:20:04
Liverpool are looking at Podolski or Soldado. There also looking at a centre defending midfielder theres been rumours that tiote could go to liverpool. also liverpool are looking at a right winger, they might want Jesus Navas/Walcott/Lennon. They really want to be in top 4 by the looks of it. {Ed025's Note - then they will need that jesus fella..(16)(14)Not even Jesus could get Liverpool into the top four.Roberto Soldado will not be sold this transfer window. It is believed that Bayern Munich have first refusal to sign Soldado should the striker become available since Valencia have no intention of selling him to another Spanish club while, he himself is not keen on a move to England in the future. The fee for Soldado is believed to be around 17m and is believed to have been agreed earlier this season. Podolski has been strongly linked to Arsenal but at the moment he is very committed to Koln.Why would Lennon leave spurs in the title race, a club he's played for, for 7 years to go to Liverpool. Soldado plays for Valencia a club he's supported since he was a child he will NOT leave for Liverpool, Navas wants to go to either Barcelona, Madrid or United if he leaves Sevilla.. So yeah maybe Liverpool could sign one of Podolski or Walcott but you made that up so it ruins the whole debate


09 Jan 2012 06:16:40
Manchester City To Sign Thiago Silva And One Of These 3 Players Alexandre Pato/Hazard/Cavani(17)(15)It may come as a surprise but it's highly likely that Manchester City will not be signing anyone this transfer window. Mancini has been strictly told that he should be able to win the title with the players he has at his disposal. He has been warned that a failure to do so would result in his departure. The open cheque book attitude has concerned the board who fear that even with stadium deals and shirt deals worth £150m, the club may not break even in time for the 2013 Champions League. Therefore, it is imperative that Mancini understands that there will be no new arrivals until the squad has been streamlined and the club stops making losses of £194m.Persides the fact this is utter rubbish, it's probably true...


09 Jan 2012 05:18:33
From where I sit and,and I'm sitting a long way away,forget Errikson for starters.How about a forward thinking,level headed, ex player recently gone into management with proven ability,and for Christs sake be ENGLISH BORN (Real Passion).This will be the bloke who'll win the minds and respect of his players and take Q.P.R north.Errikson! are you people delirious.(1)(1)Great ! You dont want Paolo de Canio, with all his passion then.

Bournemouth bidding for Matt tubbs as he's a local lad but he's holding out for a move to either Leeds or Southampton. Bournemouth also after one of Matty fryatt (Leicester) Freddie Eastwood (Coventry) James hayter (Doncaster) sam vokes or Brett pitman (Bristol city). Just depends on who's willing to make the drop to league one


Fryatt / Leicester! - keep up!


Matty Fryatt plays for Hull. Nice one


Since when did matty fryatt play for leicester-wishful thinking maybe


My bad, thought he was on loan at hull


Sam vokes is on loan to burnly mate sort out your facts!


Brett Pitman Has Said he is Patient and will not look to move


More than likely going to be Hayter or Eastwood to be honest mate.... Wolves accepted Bournemouths bid for Vokes but he did not want to drop lower than championship... You can have all the Russian oil money in the world but if you can only offer league one football then your looking at past it players looking for a big pay cheque.


Only 2 of those mentioned are being looked at by Bournemouth. Hayter, as he doesn't play alot at Doncaster (alledgedly) and Eastwood, as he is a former team mate of Lee Bradbury and since Bradbury is making a habit of signing ex-team mates, the second looks most likely
Brett pitmann wot a waste of money you can av im for nothing.
Defiantly can not see Tubbs coming to us. I know someone who is/was at the time heavily involved with Salisbury and their scouting network, and he said that Tubbs said he HATED being with bournemouth because of "the way he was treated". Would've loved to see him come though!(1)(8)Cody MacDonaldBrett Pitman is a good player given the chance playing 2nd fiddle to a striker who dosen't want play for us give him a chance


09 Jan 2012 01:07:00
Robert Earnshaw is not being used in a swap deal from Cardiff City for McGugan at Forest. Nottingham Forest don't want Earnshaw back, and can't afford his wage demands. If they do sign another striker (unlikely due to Harewoods arrival) it will be someone whos fit and who can score.(8)(2)He is , said his goodbye's at WBA saturday!After scoring one and setting up anotherYeah mcgugan 2 norwich not cardiff and gunter as well. We need more defenders any forest news ed? {Ed001's Note - I haven't heard anything other than the McGugan rumours, he is being shopped around.}

Ipswich were looking at Jonathan Hogg from Watford during their FA Cup win over Bradford City.(5)(10)Believable because he's a class player but he won't leaveSo you think he'd move from Watford, who are an average Championship team, doing reasonably well at the moment, to Ipswich, an average Championship team who are underachieving... GET REAL.

"Contrary to his own Twitter assertion that he will stay at Barnet until the end of the season, I have it on very good authority that Izale McLeod will be re-signed by MK Dons this week on a 2 year contract. Fee agreed, thought to be £375k"

Very funny. Dons spending £375k! HA HA! No chance. Now, £37.5k, that I WOULD believe...(2)(2)


09 Jan 2012 00:35:50
Swansea's Brendan Rogers is planning a £3 million double swoop for Watford's Adrian Marriappa and Lee Hodson.(5)(11)13 million might get one of them.LOL be serious. Mariappa is good, probably good enough to be in the Swansea team...but he's worth maybe £3m tops.

Hodson is young but he's so weak.....small....and he's not fast either. He barely manages in the Championship so he has no chance in the Premier League. He might find his level in the Championship but I don't see him doing better. Worth maybe £750k if we're being greedy....

anyone heard anything on fraser forster coming back perminently. celtic have first refusal but i think we can outbid the. i stay in glasgow and he has been brilliant against udinese athletico and rangers and ok some rubbish teams too. ruddy has been good but this guy could win us plenty more points than ruddy.(3)(8)I'm pretty sure there's a clause that celtic have for first refusal and a set price of £2m. sorry palRuddy is a far better keeper. With an England call up soon 2 follow. Frazier was great 4 us in league 1 but there is a massive jump 2 the prem. ruddy has been great so far. You don't know what your talking aboutIs this the same John Ruddy who was rubbish with Motherwell?!?! Very prone to a clanger, and I see he's not kept a clean sheet this year in the EPL... Forster is far better than Ruddy

The four main names in the frame for the QPR job are Sven Goran Erikson, Paolo Di Canio, Ray Wilkins and Alan Curbishley(10)(22)Although the favourite is mark hughesMark Hughes is favourite apparently, we shall see.Let ray wilkins take over and bring them back where they belong the championship lolEven if you had ferguson qpr would still go downAlan Curbishley should get the job. a very under-rated manager suited for a mid league club in the prem. would do well with QPRLike to see eriksonI would be very surprised if any of these names are in the frame. Why would QPR want Sven when Leicester didn't?, Di Canio is completely unproven, Ray Wilkins is a coach and pundit not a manager, Alan Curbishley had a good little spell 10 years ago at Charlton but what since? QPR doomed to relegation if any of these people are appointed manager.I don't want any of these names it's going to be Hughes worst appointment would be Sven please noooooooooooDi canio isnt in the frame as he wont leave swindon during this season."Alan Curbishley had a good little spell 10 years ago at Charlton" A good little spell! He managed a prem team on a shoestring for 7 seasons go get some knowledge!

Celtic will only allow Gary Hooper to join Southampton if they are successful in their bid to land Huddersfield Town hot-shot Jordan Rhodes.

Southampton had a £3m bid rejected by The Hoops earlier on today - whilst the Glasgow based club are expected to offer upwards of £6m for The Terriers Scotland international within the next few days.(7)(20)Good business if true, but im sure a mid-bottom table EPL side will pay well over the odds for this guy!Southampton are really serious title contenders and are not willing to relinquish our top spot in the championship easily. We are willing to , and have the money to buy decent players that fit our club style a and will definately pay over the oddds for mediocre players.
to all you people out there esp. bha idiots that think you are the better or even (haha) bigger club on the south coast, this space.Southampton have only enquired and have NOT bid for Hooper .... this is a speculative journalist story after learning that Hooper was mentioned in meetinfgs when they signed Jos Houiveld . Celtic have said he is not for sale but I have learnt today that a bid of 5.5 million or more will be accepted for Hooper if was made from Southampton . It is now down to the south coast side to work out if he is the best man they can get for that amount of money. Celtic have a loan option on someone from EPL if Hooper is sold.Absolute garbage!

hooper will not be sold in this window, and especially not for a measly 5m!

get real, people are already talking about an unproven BOY (rhodes) costing upwards of 8m, yet hooper has proven his worth in the championship, done it against top quality european sides, and is top scorer in the spl, yet is still worth less lol....yer all having a giraffe

I love all the big licks from you english. All your won't last for ever. Talk of 2 horse race. Man U Chelsea ring a bell? Morons. We may have 3 billionaires on our board but whybare we not competing with epl teams? look where it got rangers trying to compete with them? We get around 3 million for winning the title. Due to tv and sponsorships in England you get more formgettin relegated. It's true there is no comparison with the leagues but given the chance and funds both the old firm would flourish in the premiership. As it has been said though turkeys don't vote for Christmas so not much chance of us getting in. In find it is funny though that you compare everton wolves to Celtic and rangers. Neither could spell Europe let alone tell you what it is to compete on that front. Celtic are one of the only clubs in Europe who are in the black. Rant over!(11)(25)If you're going to talk about spelling at least spell check your own work - dipstick.
Incidentally I love the passion of the Scots and would welcome you into the English Leagues but I believe you should have to prove yourself by going up via the championship.
If you believe you are good enough you won't mind the step down for a season.Couldn't have put it any better myself.Celtic are in debt you muppetIs this the Wolves who beat you in pre-season without breaking a sweat?Celtic are in debt? certainly not to the tune of the EPLs finest do your research willybhoyWolves, lol pre season friendly gotta laugh at that 1And is that the everton that were in the Europa league in 2010..and made it to the last 32 round along with Fulham......remind where celtic finished oh yes out at group stages...Wolves beat Celtic Reserves Im afraid, check out the team sheet,Celtic are £35 million pounds in debt.I know as I have shares in them.A.MEnglish Football is about to fall flat on its face , you mark my words . Debt ridden leagues , wait till UEFA fair play system comes in .
CelticMattThe Europa league? The same Europa league the both Celtic and Rangers have reached the final in the last 8 years? Beating English teams on the way. Or what about Celtic beating man utd, juventus or AC Milan in the champions league? Did fulham or everton do that?Shut up with your £35 million in debt, I actually do own shares and there is a debt of a couple of million! ClownCeltic are £800,000 in debt. not £35,000,000. eejit.Same Europa league u went out I'n the fist round to a unheard of team!! Celtic are a big club I'n Scotland but do u seriously think if you did join the epl you would take over!! Lol if you do u are more deluded than u sound.. up the wolvesOh and how many champions league finals have Celtic reached I'n the last 8 years? Think there's been an English club I'n the final nearly every season beating Celtic and rangers on the way!! Well when their I'n it lol!!Erm, I'm not a fan but I'm pretty sure Fulham beat Juventus & a host of other top european sides on their way to the final not so long ago.

Also, Rangers & Celtic are pretty much guaranteed euro qualification playing what is effectively English league 1 standard competition.Celtic are in £35 million quid worth off debt,both off you are wrong.A MTop post OP

i'm fed up with the arrogance of the english, they truly are living in their own wee secular bubble, none of them have a clue just how big a club celtic are, if they would only listen to people who know what they're talking about, ie players and managers who come to play us, they would realise just how big a club we are.

unfortunately, sky's money has ruined the game and clouded the judgement of the already obnoxious, elitist, secular english.

i honestly cant wait till the bubble bursts and you have to live within your means, there's no way teams like wolves, fulham, and about 15 others can generate the kind of money that will conform to the fair play rules.

man u, liverpool and arsenal are the only truly global brands in england, the rest are only known in the crappy towns and villages in which they occupy.

and yes, celtics debt stands at 800k, unlike a certain epl teams £750m!No one mentioned that the statement was everton couldn't even spell europe let alone tell you what is like to compete in it, I'm just putting you right pal. What about Fulham 2010 and Middlesborough 2006 reaching the final or are they too lowly to mention not being the massive clubs you are (sarcasm). Lets face it two places in Europe from SPL shouldn't be to difficult for the OF to get in should it.Celtic in 35mil debt .. Omg worst I've heard yet!Celtic also beat barcelona at Celtic park and 0-0 on return leg! Clowns out there think low average teams like wolves r better than Celtic! On their day Celtic would beat most EPL teams, and the past years it's a FACT!Wolves for the dropAs a Celic fan, op is unfair to have a go at epl; any club would happily take big tv money given the chance. Spl was never good enough in the first place at the beginning of tv deals. It only makes half -maybe more- of the money it does due to old firm.

However old firm would be a great addition to epl IMO, bringing in approximately 20 million worldwide fans, combined between the 2, ibrox (50000+ capacity) and Celtic park (60000+ capacity). Not to mention even better tv deals due to celtic's influence in countries such as USA, Mexico and japan (japan estimated to have over 1 mil Celtic fans due to nakamura having played).

I think however it would only be fair to enter at championship.

Old firm has completely outgrown the spl, and has a huge amount to offer English football. Like it or not, the old firm is s global brand.I disagree that the OP is unfair at having a go....just read the BS regularly spouted on here, the fact is, the epl aint all that, nor is it competitive. what it is, is rich, but when you have diddies like carroll going for 35m, then all credibility is blown right out the water.

i agree that were we to join, and i think it's only a matter of time before sky push for it, we should enter the championship and earn our place at the top table

i would also say that were that to happen, celtic could expand the stadium to 80,000+ capacity and fill it many english teams could do that?I wouldn't go on too much about the ability to spell correctly or not, you are obviously a bitter and twisted individual who has a grudge to bear with the elite teams in England. You would struggle to survive in the championship let alone the premier league.Firstly Wolves are in the black by a substantial amount. They may not be as big a club as Celtic but still have a proud history and a loyal fanbase. When the financial tumoil overcomes the Premier league Wolves will have far less to lose than most other clubs.
Secondly if the old firm wish to play in the English league they should be welcomed. However they should start somewhere around Conference level and earn a place alongside the professional clubs. Who would you relegate from the Championship to give them a place in that league? and how would you respond to the lawsuits that would no doubt follow from affected clubs?There are only a couple of clubs I'n the prem who are not I'n debt and wolves are 1 of them. I think Celtic would struggle I'n the championship to be honest.On what is the basis that celtic would struggle in the epl?

past results against liverpool, man u, blackburn etc have proven we can handle ourselves and are no less of a match for the so-called big how can anyone suggest we would struggle? in fact, given access to the same amount of money and the contrary is more likely, that's the real reason why the suggestion keeps getting thrown outThe Premiership is English. Why would a Scottish team play in the English league? Maybe get someone to sort out the Scottish league and make it into the fabulous product that the Premiership is...
Geez get real...Last english manager to win the premiership??
how many english players in Man Utd,Man City,Arsenal,chelsea??

yeah i can see where your coming from calling them english teams in the english premiership

to even things up a little.....Celtic dont have a scot in their staring line up

its allll stIt's not about being arrogant, it's about having a competitive league not a 2 team league, how exciting it must be for you having 4 important games a season.Celtic don't have a scot in their starting line up??

stalybridge celtic maybe, but Celtic FC have Brown, Forrest & Mulgrew all 1st names on the teamsheet you plank!But you dont have a competitive league, and you have exactly the same 2 team league as the spl that you keep berating

lets face it, if it's not man u, its chelski....the rest are akin to hearts, dundee utd etc in terms of chances of winning the leagueSwansea city are fropm wales and are in the EPL...So you've beaten some big teams you fail to mention the minnows that have constantly embarressed you in europe swings and roundabouts palMickey mouse league ........ end ofMost Championship teams could compete comfortably in the SPL. Its not English arrogance its just fact.Ref swansea check the history of why welsh clubs are in english leagues it might enlighten you before you say something daft googles a wonderful toolScotsman here (neither a Celtic or Rangers fan) - of course they would struggle in the Championship, due initially to lack of money and, as a result, an initial inability to attract players of the stature of those who choose to play at Manchester, Arsenal, Tottenham etc etc..
It would take them probably 2 - 3 seasons to gain promotion to EPL where again they would undoubtedly struggle. However, once the dust settled and they became financially stronger, I would imagine they would both manage to hold mid table positions - who knows, they may end up just above Wolves & Everton. {Ed003's Note - You play for a different affiliation! this obsession with comparison is doing my nut in !! }Personally I wouldn't mind seeing them down here, it would be good to see if they could actually compete and they're far too big for the rest of the Scottish teams but has said before they need to come in at Championship level and prove themselves, and even at that level the money they would earn from promotion would be higher than what they get in the SPL10 Jan 2012 08:35:43

Wolves are set to sign Chelsea young defender Patrick Van Aanholt, on loan until the end of the season.(11)(11)Where are your source mate. he is currently on loan at wigan you numptyEven though hes at wiganNope, we (Wigan) terminated his loan this week so this could happen especially with us apparently chasing ElikobiHe has returned to Chelsea so who is the person ?No , he has returned to chelseaHis Wigan loan deal was cancelled Friday .............numptyAll 3 parties agreed to terminate his loan at wiganI can't see Wolves wanting to let Elokobi go to another relegation rival and then replacing him with the lad who Wigan terminated a loan on to chase Elokobi in the first place. Just doesn't make any sense.I love people who come on here and verbally abuse others calling them childish names. Come on fellas - grow up! What does make sense in football anyway? when you've got big money and over inflated egos - nothing does, {Ed025's Note - well said mate..

hands off pl, qpr. he is staying here at norwich where he wants to finish off the job hes started,1 to get us into the premiership, 2, to keep us there. as ive said earlier he will probably manage man utd with a former legend in 3 years time. gotta feeling we will buy 1 player only this month. hope its an experienced defender. good luck in div 1 next season ipst. ha haa!!!!!!!!!(6)(4)Again another Norwich fan who seems a bit obsessed with us.

Sunderland have accepted bids for two of their players.
Playmaker Stephane Sessegnon, is reportedly unhappy at Sunderland as he feels it is hard to settle and the Benin international looks set to talk to French side Nice. The former PSG player is keen on a move back to France and is set to sign a loan deal until the end of the season, with a view to a full time contract.
Another set to leave is left sided player Kieran Richardson. Richardson is subject of a bid from Manchester City and could join on a one and a half year deal, worth £80,000 a week.(7)(23)Don't be so stupid Richardson would never get in man city's sideI have got to agree with the fellows comment thereDont disagree that player would want to leave Sunderland (who wouldn't), but Richardson worth 80k a week, and to ManC what a joke. maybe 80k a year as towel boy.Sessegnon is one of the most consistent players in the premier league this season and I would think he would attract a better club than nice?? I'm not buying thisRichardson to man city? I think someone still drunk from new year but they can have him no bother. Sess could be right been unhappy for a while so very likelyRichardson is garbage,getting money for him will be a bonus,we need a proper left back,I would sell Sess for a profit.Hot n cold player,dribbling skills ok,but tries to take too many on & loses it and he can't shoot for toffee

Portuguese side Benfica have also had a bid accepted but is expected Chelsea will get to the defender before anyone.(4)(8)


08 Jan 2012 20:21:03
Chelsea have made a bid to sign top flight Chilean star Sebastian Pinto. Pinto is a 25 year old attacker and has impressed Andre Villas Boas, scoring 13 goals in 14 starts for Chilean side O'Higgins.(7)(6)

Aston Villa are set to beat Premier League rivals, West Brom and Bolton, to the signature of USA defender Tim Ream. Ream currently plays for New York Red Bulls and will sign a two year deal with the club by the end of the month.(3)(12)


08 Jan 2012 20:37:47
Aston Villa have made a bid for Brighton winger Craig Noone. Noon has been superb for the Championship side this season and has interested a number of Championship rivals. Alex McLeish has put a bid together, worth around £2.5 million, and Gus Poyet has already held a meeting with Noone regarding what to do with the bid.(6)(13)I am a brighton fan and i cant see this move happening. Reason being is because i saw gus poyet and he said he does not want to sell his young talent


08 Jan 2012 20:25:44
Italian side Udinese, have had a bid accepted for Porto and Colombia midfielder, Freddy Guarin.(4)(4)

08 Jan 2012 20:07:16
Billy Sharp will only move to a club that allows him to stay at his current home just south of Sheffield.(7)(7)In that case he would have to be on 1 grand a week at Leeds as there is no other championship/prem team in the Yorkshire regionEr never heard of barnsley or hull then??Leicester is a hour down the M1, so no prob.Ever heard of the M1? Leicester is a real possibility for Sharp, less than an hour from Sheffield. Pearson won't force Sharp to move home, Pearson himself lives in Sheffield!

Norwich too sign a german player in jan or summer transfer window as he has been borrowing wynn-jones's private jet, hopefully it won't be a massive gamble!(2)(10)What wont be a massive gamble, borrowing Wynn-Jones's jet ?Delia and Michael do not own an airplane.

Blackpool have accepted a 3m bid for Matty Phillips from Preston North End.(9)(27)PNE haven't got that sort of cash. If they did have 3mill to spend I'm sure they need 3-4 players rather than just the 1So let me get this right. Preston have got 3 mill to spend.
A player worth 3 Million has decided to leave a team fighting for promotion to the premier league and drop down to League 1.
I'm guessing you don't get out much mate.I have never laughed so much.If that happens i'll suck my socks!What next tevez signs 5 year contract at

Lol
The guys shocking! He put himself on his @rse with his 1st touch!A large fish to go with that chip on their shoulder(responding to the above) WHAT CHIP?! We are in the npower Championship where we belong at the moment. No Leeds fan worth their salt will tell you anything otherwise. Bates says that stuff about promotion every season.

Leeds to sign Jemaine Beckford if leicster sign Billy Sharp(15)(18)Beckford going back to leeds on loan till end of season cant play against leicester or in play offs if leicester makeWhy, are you scared or something?

And, wait, how are you going to get in the play-offs? You'll need Ian Holloway and a load of tangerine-coloured shirts to pull that off, bud.
wallyYes bring Beckford back! HE'S A LEGEND and a great strikerHaha ! Leicester in the play off's , do they do them for relegation ?

hi ed, whats going on with matias suarez/lukas poldolski and arsenal? {Ed001's Note - not a lot, Podolski is still a possibility but nothing is certain. I have nothing regarding Suarez at all sorry.}(4)(3)

Ed any news on who Ipswich's two signings will be that are meant to be confirmed by Wednesday? {Ed001's Note - sorry no.}(5)(5)Sky sports: ipswich seal deal for alex McCarthy on loan for the rest of the seasonBrilliant signing - if true.
McCarthy - best goalkeeper in the championship.
As a Leeds fan I'd buy McCarthy tomorrow (if we could afford him and he was available).
Future England keeper mark my words.Yes Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy.


08 Jan 2012 19:11:59
Jordan Rhodes to be a west ham player by the end of the window(12)(29)No way chairman says we dont need the moneyWestham will be the only team to folk out 5m on d1 player.If he did want to go( and we dont need to sell him) then a bigger club than west ham would have to come in for him, with more money, before the club or jordan would even think about itIf he goes to a so called bigger club than westham he will never be a first team regular a hammer he would play all the time when fit.Wake up Huddersfield fans - he might have scored a bag full of goals in the pub standard league but was sold by Ipswich to you for buttons because he could not hack it higher up - ok he is older and better but £5m is all of the money - if anyone puts anything like that on the table (and £20k per week for the player) you won't see him for dust.Think it would take at least 7 mill bid with add ons and sell on clause.
If I was Huddersfield I'd be interested in selling him to a side that was willing to loan him back for rest of season.he could go to the prem and west ham think he'd want to go there? cuteRhodes will not go to a team higher that the championship.. Too bigger jump and a risk for a Prem side7 mill not exactly a big risk by prem standards for a striker.No one in p/league bottom 10 have got 7m, top 10 not good enough.He admitted he is a celtic supporter
so i reckon he would choose celtic over any championship/ bottom half premiership team!Ag ag ag @ Celtic, they haven't got £70,000 let alone £7m


08 Jan 2012 19:17:29
qpr sack warnock(20)(8)That's QPR relegated then, especially if Hughes or Sven replace him.
Warnock's not the most likeable Manager but he's honest and knows his stuff.

Southampton made a enquiry to get Gary Hooper from Celtic because he is a natural goal scorer and nigel new him from his Scunthorpe days and gets on with him, plus never wanted to sell him .... :D :D Dont believe me check our this link ;) less believable that its in the daily record, they tend to try and unsettle players ie sandaza to rangers. wonder who they are playin next week!Would be a great signing, sadly not going to happen. And it seems like we've missed our chance to get Sharp (if we were interested that is).what you talking about?The were talking about the Spainaird signing for us last night in Sportscene.Pat Nevin in fact who played for you.Suppose its another conspiracy,that Rangers would want the SPL top goal scorer.Get a grip off your self.If hooper leaves it will be for a EPL team hes to good for the championshipPat nevin played for who?
rangers would want the spl top goal scorer? who is that hooper?I think u will find that Nikica Jelavic is top goal scorer in scotland the now top leagueRangers already have the top goalscorer @Jelavic^^ Not for long!Hooper has most goals in all comps this season on 15 then jelavic and stokes on 14. so u can understand their interest!


08 Jan 2012 18:43:19
Qatari side Umm Salal, are expected to complete the signing of Premier League target Pascal Feindouno, in the next few hours. The Guinea international was recently released by Swiss side FC Sion, and could sign a one and a half year lucrative deal.(5)(1)


08 Jan 2012 18:42:52
Tony Fernandes has already spoken to Sven Goran-Eriksson about the possibilty of taking over from Neil Warnock.(14)(7)Definitely going down. When will these Chairman realise Sven is actually useless.As much as BCFC loved to wind him up, I did have a lot of respect for Neil Warnock.He is a good manager and reckon he deserved better.That would meen going down.that guy is a dudClearly another chairman who has no idea what makes a good manager, If you chuck enough cash at Sven, he can get you players through the door, but you don't win games by fielding 11 players on 50K/wk. Why do you think Newcastle let Barton go on a free, they were glad to be rid of the so called ' best English midfielder' playing in premier league, then you went for Shaun Wright Phillips, big name, big salary and what has he really done so far, neither have set the league alight.
Warnock has always shown a lack of respect ,recent examples Holt, Van Persie, and more recently Johnson, accusing all of being cheats, which clearly shows he does not respect other teams or managers and always blames the ref, the other team, the linesman, and sometimes even his own players. Its never his fault.
In my opinion he has only ever been average and won't be any loss to the premier league.Very well said, too many excuses. If maybes and scapegoats won points he would be called ' Sir Neil ' and fergie would be assistant manager at St Mirren !Not going to happen will be Sparky, bad decision getting rid of Warnock but Fernandes ain't that stupid, I hope


08 Jan 2012 18:41:02
LA Galaxy are set to make a £1.5 million bid for West Brom striker Simon Cox, as the MLS side look for recruitments during their pre season.(5)(14)WBA manager Roy Hodgson said Cox is going no where.You are right. Is that his career thats going nowhere?Who posts this kinda on here! cox wants first team football to give him a chance in the euro's! as far as im aware the MLS season has finished, and not competative enough for him 2 get into the national side even if he is in form!


08 Jan 2012 18:38:01
Any Wigan Athletic News?(2)(13)James McCarthy probably going to Liverpool but Liverpool are put off by 20m price tagGeorge Elokobi From Wolves To WiganJMcC will be at Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd or Arsenal by the start of next season.


08 Jan 2012 18:36:50
Premier League side QPR, are keen to sign Ivar Ingimarsson. Tony Fernandes, who is the owner of Rangers, was keen to sign the former Iceland defender and the reason behind the Neil Warnock sacking was due to this transfer. The former Reading and Ispwich centre half has been in talks with Fernandes the last few days without Warnock knowing, and the former Sheffield United manager lost his patience.(4)(13)Rubbish - if he was not good enough for Ipswich in Championship there is no way he is anywhere good enough for Premiership. He had his contract terminated by Ipswich because he was so bad.


08 Jan 2012 18:34:38
Now warnock gone at QPR Jay bothroyd will be going along with gabbidon and others(12)(3)Easier said and done, when you sign players on inflated wages that are above their real worth, its pretty difficult to get them out since most clubs will not pay wages to that level.
Bothroyd, Gabbidon, Barton, SWP, DJ Cambell are all on inflated wages if the newspapers are to be believed. Then Bridge and Alan Smith were being touted to come to QPR, both of whom have been sitting in the stands for over a year, raking in huge salaries at clubs where they are clearly not wanted.Why do some teams throw money at players when they join on a free. I'm sure bothroyd will be more than happy sitting on the bench getting his 25k per week. He had some good games at Cardiff but a few of my mates there said he could be lazy for 60% of the game. Who ever goes to QPR is going to have a hell of a job sorting things out there with the number of players already there. I'm sure there will be plenty of players going out on loan. I reckon bothroyd will go to Ipswich and gabbidon to Charlton. Just my opinion.Now Warnock has gone any chance of Toomy Smith back to Watford?With the exception of Barton & SWP these players are on Prem wages so talking rubbish. Bothroyd, Campbell & Gabbidon all signed before the take over which was sad because probably non of them would have been purchased/obtained otherwise. Apart from DJ who has been unlucky through injury hope the others go. Celtic are sniffing round Bothroyd


08 Jan 2012 18:32:48
Dos Santos could be leaving spurs for Malaga for a fee of 10+million!!!(9)(11)Dos Santos is on his way out of Spurs one way or another. Malaga are in the position to offer a considerable amount of money for him.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson, is set to sign Northern Irish youngster Alex Coffey, from Manchester United on a free transfer. The midfielder was told he can find a new club and Pearson is keen to sign the young playmaker.(0)(12)His name is john coffey and burnley has first refusal on himWasn't he the fella in the film "the green mile"?No its a different players. john COFIE, is ghanian who joined united few years ago and is a striker. this lad is northern irish and a midfielder

08 Jan 2012 18:28:22
Ipswich to offer pacy Kieran dyer a final swansong back at portman rd,bringing back memories of carving open defences!(1)(12)Not fit - out for season I think.Don't think it's possible to carve open defences when your sat on the treatment table...Sounds about right he is out for the seasonIsn't he another one of Warnock's signing disasters, big money, always likely to be on the sick list, no wonder he's gone.Yeah seems legit, carve open in a wheelchair perhaps?He hasn't had pace since he last graced the blue of the Tractor Boys. I've seen players move quicker coming out of the tunnel. So you're signing a slug with terminal injuries. I suppose he'll still get through Leeds' defence.


08 Jan 2012 18:04:34

Brighton have made a surprise enquiry about Birmingham young winger Nathan Redmond. Gus Poyet is keen to take the youngster to AMEX but may be out off by the price tag. The England under 18 winger is wanted by a number of Premier League clubs but Poyet has been told that he will be given funds this month and has made an approach for Redmond.(1)(16)A possibility put the premier league clubs have the upper hand on signing himWow, were u the joker of your class. since when do BRIGHTON have £12 million. plus why would hughton sell redmond to a division rival. its unheard of.Maybe because Birmingham will soon be skint when there owner gets banged up. Could be another Portsmouth12 million??............... yh right think his price tag is over realistic there, and he would let him come to brighton as we are a bigger club!HAHA, how the hell are brighton a bigger club.. tell me... how many trophies have you won.. how many years have you spent in the premier league or top flight in the past 20 years? who has had the bigger players?
who has the most history? who was the first english club to make it to the european cup - which is now the champions league incase your deluded self didnt know!Have you been playing too much football manager?


08 Jan 2012 18:24:36
Hibernian are to take Daniel Kearns on loan. Kearns will play the attacking midfield role for Hibs(5)(7)It just what we needHe is too much of an important role for Peterborough to go out on loan and Fergie loves him. Usually players go out on loan in Jan so they can get a move in the summer, but he only signed a 4 year deal past summer so this is unlikely.


08 Jan 2012 18:24:38

Blackburn Rovers are set to make a £12 million bid for Scotland and Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor as they look for competition in the goalkeeping spots.(2)(30)Blackburn haven't got £12, never mind £12 Mill to waste on an average keeper12m? is that chickens eggs?£12 mil? Not a chance he's worth that! Maybe 8 and rangers are in such a mess they'd probably take 6 mil (help try and pay the taxman)Mcgrogor best brittish goalie£6m for a spl player?, its a diddy league 1.75 should secure himGood keeper look around some of the numptys in epl,better than a lot of themWonder what Mr Robinson would make of that. The reserve keeper is good enough as wellPlease try to keep your rumour's credible,
firstly a Scottish goalkeeper worth 12M mind you considering what Man U paid for De Gea £17.5M wasn't it, maybe he could be worth it... ha ha
Seriously Blackburn owners to spend 12M on one player, what are you smoking, and can I get some ?Allan mcgregor is on a par with your over hyped joe hartLOL at the guy saying McGregor is better than most premier league keepers. Thats what they said about Craig Gordon and now he's a sub at a mediocre team.Craig Gordon to Sunderland for £9m and mcgregor is twice as good. The rumour is poor though, blackburn are going down...Love it ! SPL is a micky mouse league ! Look at some of the teams in it ! Hooper is a superstar at celtic... He couldnt even crack it in the championship !Gordon still has the number 1 shirt at Sunderland.He has played his first reserve game,after fighting back from injury.He only lost his place,as he has had three bad injuries.In a short space of time.As for McGregor he has been linked with Spanish clubs before,and EPL ones to.Rangers wont sell him on the cheap.Rangers dont owe the banks anything.Whyte bought us and cleared the debts.The debts now owed to him.And the HRMC case has not happened yet.Its not a certainty that is will be lost.And yet people talk on here,as if its happened.And that Rangers lost the case.Un less they have a crystal ball.I suggest that they consintrate on there own teams.AllyWhat are you on about you dafty, Hooper couldn't hack it in the championship? Think you'll find he scored 19 in the championship the 2009/10! Muppet

Lukas Jutkiewicz from Coventry too go too Southhampton by the end of next week as he is a life-time Southampton fan and the Saints have been after him since the summer. There main target Nicky Maynard is on his way too West Brom apparently so it makes the Juke deal even more likely.

Also Gael Bigirimana the youngster from Coventry is being chased by Man City and also Liverpool, this has come from within the club and is 100% true

Richard Keogh too bolton is utter rubbish and this rumour has been catorgorically denied by Keogh

As a Cov fan, when we lose Juke and if we lose Gael we might as well pack it in straight away because they are our only sparks of hope.

WATCH THIS SPACE(7)(8)Im watching this space. PUSBBigirmana is hardly a ray of hope, he gets caught on the ball too much and is a very niave footballers atm, good prospect yes but good enough to keep us up noNicky Maynard is not our main Target! Also unlikely Jutkiewicz will be coming south as we are just about to sign Japanese international Tadanari LeeI am a mate of gaels and he told me at this moment in time he is 100% commited to coventry city he is happy here in coventry and dont plan on moving anywhere in the near future

HI ED any news on saints move for gary hooper? {Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any move for Hooper, but I would think any bids would be rebuffed.}(2)(7)No chance of getting hooperStill after the same old duds Saints?Any bids would definitely be rebuffed, Celtic will not sell the SPLs leading goalscorer midway through the championship when they are indeed chasing a treble!Just google Gary Hooper. Its in the Scottish Press and think it was in the Mail. Ed 001 is correct though, its been rebuffed.Im a Rangers fan,Hooper too good for Saints,could play in prem,at middle table team,decent all round striker,better player now than when he arrived in Scotland,but i think he likes where he is.What duds are you speaking about? If your talking about hooper you don't have a clue mateSee i don't think Celtic will be selling the spl's leading goal scorer as he plays for rangers

WATPBecause its in the press does not mean it will happen, the guy is the leading goalscorer in the spl chasing a championship treble so theres no way celtic would do business, sorry to shoot down your rumour but it wont happen!But hes not the leading scorer!?08 Jan 2012 22:05:14
Here it is Ed. Personally I'd love him, but he's not going to join us. Sharp was my first choice but it seems he's off to Leicester.

Sharp will reject Leciester and stay loyal to Rovers and help them avoid relegation!(14)(19)Doubt it if he don't go Leicester he will go elsewhereA hopeful doncaster fanBeing offered 24 grand a week, i admire your optimisim but get real buddyYeah right you wish!24 grand a week for a guy who has done nothing Leicester going for admin or whatHow are we going towards admin you obviously dont know how rich are owners are.(responding to the above) I don't get it when people say that. Owners come and go like weekday busses, unless they're Ken Bates. Leicester are inconsistent, messy, expensive in both transfer fees and wages, and stand little chance now of clinching automatic promotion. I'm sure the owner, who is in charge and makes the calls, unlike you, is more likely to be considering his position, rather than shelling out for another squads worth of players. Personally, I think Leicester will get Sharp, but he won't help them in the slightest. The problem: eight lazy central midfielders, no decent wide-men, unless a Leicester season-ticket holder can correct me.

Jason Puncheon is in part of a deal to finnaly get him out of the club and is reportedly returning to Blackpool for Matty Phillips. Jason Puncheon + 2.5million(12)(15)Saints have been interested in Matt Phillips for a while and tried to sign him when he left Wycombe for Blackpool. Saints do need a right winger with pace and also want rid of Puncheon. And supposedly Holloway is keen on Puncheon so there could be some truth in this rumour. It might take more than £2.5 million plus Jason Puncheon though - and I'm not sure Blackpool need the money.Not again! Do you mean 'reported' on this page below?I've heard this from a mate in blackpool aswell, but more like + 3.5mPhilips will have price tag of no less than £5 million after this weekend and saints won't pay that sort of money not even for someone like Rooney. You don't get any bargains in january it's just panic buying and I am a saints fan

Kirk Broadfoot could be on his way to BCFC, toss up between them and Leeds. Approach made this morning by both,decision by Tuesday.(7)(6)Goodbye big Kirky,decent big guy wholehearted,hope he gets a few quid,never a first team player at Rangers,but big honest pro.Loved it when he danced passed McGeady,priceless.Rangers have injuries and he can play a few posistions.He is crocked to,but I dont know how long for.And he knocked back the EPL,when Blackpool were there.He did not want to leave us then.So I dont see why he would want to move to play in a lesser league.Un less we are pushing him out the door.He is under rated,suppose he needs games.If he wants to get back in the Scotland squad.I wish him well if he does leave.A.MI hope not BCFCs defence is bad enough without Broadfoot making it worse.Blackpool far smaller than the mighty whites FACT!

Nicky Maynard [West Brom] £3M
Damion Stewart [Notts County] Loan
Jamal Campbell-Ryce [Charlton Ath] Undisc'
Lee Johnson [Yeovil] £90K
Jordan Spence [West Ham] Loan Terminated
Development Squad players heading out on loan:
Marlon Jackson [AFC Telford]
Henry Muggeridge [Clevedon Town]
Bobby Reid [AFC Telford]

Joe Edwards wanted by a couple of league 2 clubs but currently injured.


Ricky Foster [Aberdeen] £225K
Stephen Pearson [Derby] Nominal Fee
Ryan Stephenson [Hearts] Free
Andrew Driver [Hearts] Loan
Scott Laird [Stevenage] Undisc'
Francisco Sandaza [St Johnstone] £275K(8)(15)Sandaza has signed a pre contract agrrement with Rangers.And McInnes told radio Scotland,that he has no intention in signing Stevenston or Boyd.Stevo has Middlesburgh interested in him.And it was £250 000 you paid for Foster.I could see you going for Cillian Sheridan on loan for his Bulgarian team.And trying to make a deal for Murray Davidson at St Johnstone.Driver was rubbish yesterday in the Scottish,against a Scottish junioir team,Auchinleck Talbot from Ayrshire.He will need to up his game,if he wants to move in this window.A.MDespite it being widely reported that Bristol City paid £250K for Foster, the figure wasn't that much, up front anyway. Rangers are indeed very intersted in Sandaza, but no deal has been agreed as of yet, hopefully McInnes may be able to convince him. Any move for Francisco will probably depend on Maynards future.Scott laird wont leave stevenage he recently signed a new contract plus hes playing week in week out. you can take ben may from us (stevenage) tho.

Norwich will complete the signing of Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez. Lambert was interested in him before the FA cup match between the two sides and Lambert will only have been impressed that he scored. Also the player in question was mightily impressed by Norwich's style of play and wants to be a part of it. The fee is in the region of £2M with add ons taking the total fee up to £3.5M WATCH THIS SPACE!(7)(13)Think you better check how much Southampton bid in the summer, your not even half way there, zero chance at that type of feeBurnley want nearer £7M for his services I think you'll findSoton offer 4 million for him and fox as well. I don't know what the split was....Please remember that Newspapers constantly over hype Fees being paid, just because its in the press at £4M does not actually mean anything.
I suspect they will accept considerably less than £4M, and the number mentioned seems about rightBUFC agreed 4m with saints back in the summer but Jay didn't want to go
i also understand that the deal is still on the tableIts never actually disclosed with Saints but i remember about £2M for Fox and ultimately £5.5M for RodriguezJay is rumoured to be undergoing negotiations of a contract extension at Burnley, The Burnley Born Striker is also believed to have told the club chairman not to bother accepting offers as he believes his future is at his home town club of which he has supported his whole lifeWe rejected 5 million in pre season, so why would we sell him for less than 5 mlli, also EH wants to build the team around Jay, so I cant see us selling him unless some1 bids between 6-8 mill

James Tomkins has not started for West Ham against Sheffield Wednesday. Could this be to prevent him being cup tied at the request of a potential new employer?(8)(7)No, he's being rested as he has played all gamesYeh sam said hes restingYh I think West Ham are playing a second string side todayCole nolan noble tomkins green all being rested although 2 are on the bench obrien baldock lansbury all need match finess due to injurysThat's a tad naive isn't it? We all know he wouldn't actually come out and say "He's not playing as he would be cup-tied which could scupper a move." It could well be he is simply being rested, but no-one will be surprised if he isn't an Iron much longer, and his "being rested" MIGHT be a little clue

He plays every week and is scoring goals, the player is not motivated by money.10 mil, will fail medical, then play with no insurance? LOL get real

As a Saints fan i don't want an 'injury plagued striker'.Hes not good enough for SaintsVery average player!

Antony Pilkington Norwich City to Tottenham Hotspurs- £5m plus Kyle Naughton.

Source: Mate in players' lounge after yesterday's game. Also mentioned on both Clubcall and Eatsleepsport websites too.

Pilkington not on bench yesterday as Spurs didn't want him cup tied.(4)(22)What a load of rubbish! pilko wasnt on the bench as lambert had given him time aswell as john riddy to see his new born babyI agree never going 2 happenHarry can want all he likes but Norwich signed Pilkington on a 3 year contract with a 1 year option so Norwich hold all the cards, the only way I can see this happening is if Norwich get stupid money for him IE 6M+ add on's and Naughton and would then only accept it if he can get Snodgrass in from Leeds and Rhodes from Huddlersfield, selling Pilkington so early would also generate substantial extra funds for Huddersfield so it could be a factor in also trying to persuade Huddersfield to sell Rhodes to Norwich.
Frankly though I think Lambert will reject any move for Pilkington.Norwich hold all the cards?? stupid comment. everyone knows that the clubs with money hold all the cards!!Norwich DO hold all the cards.....trouble is its a full pack of jokersIt is certainly not a stupid comment, Because he is our player for another three years + if Lambert chooses to keep him, and we do not need the cash as Norwich run a pretty tight ship and do not splash millions on gambles to get promoted, so yes Norwich do hold all the cards, not all clubs bend over and take it, clearly you know nothing about Paul Lambert he will make any call on Pilkington's transfer, and if he considers Pilkington essential to maintain premier football he will be going nowhere. Selling him for 10M would make no sense if it costs the club 40M next year in premier payments.
The Lad is just 23 years old and after a really bad injury last season is only now beginning to show how good he can become. Unproven at this level and yet five goals in 16 premier games from a winger.Pilkington has already said he wants to repay the faith to lambert for signing him whilst he had a broken leg! Highly unlikely he'll be going....'my source said this' in other words your mate has made up crap lolLol, good old norwich fans, clutching at any excuse. You ALL at carrow road defo know him personally and how he feels..who could doubt you...M8, I'm not even a teenager yet and I still know that now were in the prem only players and coaches are able to go in the players lounge, not fans. {Ed025's Note - not true mate..i have been in a a friend of a playerI love it how u believe that the players all talk openly about moving clubs to strangers.. and he managed to even get the price wow. why bother even holding press conferences from now onEd, I'm saying you can be a friend but not any oh stranger

No sign of him as Reading loose shock defeat at home to some Swedenage or something!

Set to sign for Cardiff if noone bid fails again

He's not going to Cardiff. Radio Leicester reporting he will come to Leicester this week.cardiff can't match the wages offered by Leicester.

Leicester may be able to offer more wages but he's more likely to get premiership football at Cardiff or Reading.(8)(3)Cardiff managedvto bank roll some of bellamys wagesbso surely they could afford kebe, unless they got a wage limit this year as chopra etc gone. I'm sure Cardiff main owner worth £700 odd millionI think you'll find that vincent tan cardiffs joint owner is a billionaire and his partner dato chan is worth 700 mil, not bad considering our manager is yet to dip into his transfer kittyWikipedia says Vincent Tan is worth US $1.3bn, which is about £850m

Southampton have had a bid rejected for striker gary hooper(15)(9)My understanding is SFC tested the water at 3.8m and are likely to up to 5mWould love saints to sign him, him and lambert would tear defences apart! Tadanari Lee as back-up as well!Hoopers failed to cut it in the championship before. What makes him worth 5m ? Ridiculous !Hooper failed, what do you know he scored 19 goals in 35 starts. Maynard got the golden boot, he scored 20, but got more starts. Stato ManWhen you say 'failed to cut it' are you forgetting the 19 he scored during his last spell in the Championship, when he was third top scorer?And, no disrespect, playing for Scunthorpe under AdkinsHooper scored 50 goals in 2 seasons for Scunthorpe in the championship..if thats no cutting it then a dont know what is and he will never leave us for a small club try 8 mil and that might get yous to the tableSouthazzzzzzzzzzz Boring seem to be signing everybody.
The bubble has burst fellas play off's at best for you nowAndy carroll scored less goals for newcastle in the championship than hooper did for a Scunthorpe side in the bottom half of the league. Didn't cut it?? Amazing some of the comics posting on this...

Bristol City are reportedly interested in signing unattached Kris Boyd as a possible replacement for Nicky Maynard. Derek Mcinnes always liked the look of Boyd from his time in the SPL and could offer him a second chance to make his mark in the championship. Regarding the situation with Maynard, it is rumored Swansea City are preparing to launch a 2 million to lure Maynard away from Bristol and make his mark in the premier league.(4)(1)From his time at forest you could see he is a really effective championship striker, however he wants wages of around 25k pw, for that salery you should be looking at better than that.McInnes said on radio Scotland before Xmas,that he had no interest in Boyd or Stevenston.I would say that was better,than reading any media speculation.It came right from the horces mouth.Ally

Blackpool have offered Kevin Phillips to Watford plus £2 million in exchange for Marvin Sordell.
Phillips would look forward to reuniting his close ties with Sean Dyche's hornets

Why would Watford want Philips who only has a season tops left in him at a decent level, they showed an interest in him when he was a free in the summer and he shose to sign for Blackpool, so why on earth would they want to pay or lose money from the Sordell valuation of approx 3-5M for somebody who didnt want to join in the summer, absolute rubbish.(7)(10)

My brother is groundsman at Thorpe arch, Beckford seen with another male, could be something !! Beckford back at Leeds !!(4)(15)Hope not,becks have given leeds fans good memories for hi 80 odd gls he scored in 3 seasons of L1would not like that tarnished by him not doing it 2 nd time around.Maybe it is for another reason because I don't think beckoned will join Leeds againIm a leicester fan and i would give u beckford for free hes lazy and never runs and has a crap touchTotally agree and of course he's a first division player, what he done since he left Leeds ??My brother is a groundsman at Thorpe Arch as well. Are we brothers?

Rooney to city or barca that's manchini and peps planJust signed chris foy on a free transferFoy got an awful lot of things wrong this afternoon, both waysWasnt the tackle on nani and not rooney! didnt see match just seen tackle on news! {Ed001's Note - yes but Rooney sprinted across the pitch to complain to the referee, while Nani, to be fair to the lad, was busy getting on with the game.}

dont need a left back coz we got tayls and naylsStevenage FC confirm that Preston North End FC have asked for permission to speak to Graham Westley with the view to employing him as their new Manager.

The club have informed Preston that their approach is unwelcome at this crucial stage of the season. However, as always in these situations, the Manager's desire will influence the outcome.

We will update supporters on this website when we have more news.


08 Jan 2012 11:36:33
Alexander and Unsworth to get the Preston job till at least end of the season!

Source: Sky Sports News(4)(8)Please let this be false info from sky or this will be a disgraceful decision the fans have been taken for a ride big time if this happens as ridsdale keeps us all guessing surely he cant appoint the last choice the fans wanted.Roy Keane, Billy Davies, Sean O'Driscol, Mark Robins, Jim Magilton, Dave Jones and Gary Flitcroft have all been posted on here of late to be installed the day after!!

Leicester City make new and improved bid for Cameron Stewart. £1.5m the new offer. Clearly Nigel Pearson didn't hear Barmby when he said if anyone leaves, it won't be to leicester.(11)(5)Money talksTry adding a 0 to that if he wants him ! {Ed001's Note - you mean £1.50m?}Or maybe £01.5m


08 Jan 2012 11:23:54
qpr are in talks wit Jordan Rhodes 2.5m ..(4)(23)Don't think so. They've already rejected more than thatSo are every club in the country if all posts are to be believedNow that is the most realistic price for this decent L1 player but hoping he can score in prem is not realistic.Carrol was 35 million and he could only score in the championship {Ed001's Note - he had scored 14 Premier League goals for Newcastle, so I fail to see your point. He scored 3 before they were relegated and 11 in the months after promotion.}Right Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin went for 12 million. Delph went for 7 million. They were not full internationals, they did not have 2.5 seasons of proven performance and you think 2.5 million is realistic?

How many strikers have you seen score 27 plus 6 international goals at this stage of the season? So what if it is at L1 level - we will not sell cheap. If you want quality and he is you have to match our price.

And he's not going until the summer. The endJordan rhodes hasnt scored for scotland and only has one cap for full international squad so above comment is void. hate people that comment on here that dont know their football!! and huddersfield need to accept hes going! get over it! hes too good for you!If they are in talks with Rhodes they are breaking FA rules, until a bid has been accepted by his club and permission is given he cannot talk to any club, so suspect your post is wishful thinking and that's all it will be.
Given your current overpaid squad of under achievers, and the current Manager at QPR, I think you will find it difficult to recruit any young talent, and will be forced to rely on your original strategy, by signing players who think they have nothing to prove, Shaun Wright Phillips, Barton (who Newcastle let go for nothing) and then convince them by the size of your check book.
Wayne Bridge and Alan Smith are two who would likely sign for QPRThis is for the muppet commenting on rhodes international prowess. He scored 6 goals for u21 side in quick time which earned him full call up. Been no internationals since. Hate the jealousy of the have nots.Delph actually went for nearer 8 million. Plus, Leeds got players like Lichaj and Bannan, who aren't exactly turkeys, on loan. Technically gifted players tend to fetch a higher price-tag. Rhodes is a solid centre-forward. A great finisher yes, and a good player, but outside of League 1, he is unproven as a match-winner.


08 Jan 2012 11:17:32
cardiff will tie up the noone deal by tuesday for around 1 mil , also kris boyd whos here training as a free agent will sign this week and a full back will be signed before transfer deadline. malky wants expirience there and will wait to see whos likely to be omitted from the prem teams 25 man squads, the chairman has give him a 5 mil war chest to try and nail an auto-matic spot . hes done wonders so far the team hasent even gelled properly yet, and hes lost only 5 matches in the 32 hes been in charge of 1 being away to west brom . a league cup semi final this week , the boared belive in him and have promiced to give him what he needs . Youd have to be seriously bitter to not agree with the fine job hes done so far .(11)(10)I'm a city fan when did Boyd start training with us?Also cardiff r swapping Earnie for Lewis McGugan from Notts ForestHaters just cause all yur teams goin down dont hate on us were goin upI agree with the miracle Malky has done at Cardiff...
I don't agree with your spelling.Snodgrass wont go to norwich,to good for themNo way is Malky going to sign Kris BoydIm an Englishman who lived in Cardiff for a while and loved the place. I'm no hater but weren't you saying the same this time last year?We were saying the sam thing last year & the year before that & the year before that & so on lol.
There is a genuine belief around the place now though. The team is playing like a team unlike previous seasons. Nobody was expecting us to do so well in Malky's first season in charge so it's a bonus.


08 Jan 2012 11:15:47
Norwich to bid in the summer for Robert Snodgrass provided Norwich stay up. The bid is likely to be around £4.5m - £5.75m

Norwich could table a bid for Lewis McGugan in the summer if Nottingham Forest are relegated for £1.75m due to value decreasing because of relegation.

Jordan Rhodes could also be on his way to Norwich in the summer if Norwich stay up. This bid will be about £4.5m(10)(13)None of these players will go to Norwich all you Norwich fans are so full of your small clubFrom a birmingham city fan.

they have a reason to be full of themselves. they're doing well in the prem with a great manager. plus rhodes and snodgrass are goin norwich, not heard about mcgugan thoughNow i dont usually rise to comments but...can i add.
Norwich: 13th out of 92 clubs in football league for average attendances 2011/12. they're not that small. and were the about the same 2 yrs ago in league 1.And who do you support then?I think that's a realistic post from a Norwich fan, for a change, cos you talk about the summer but think Snodgrass and McGugan could go now if bids sufficientSnodgrass premier league ! you having a laugh mate ??Grayson says 7 Million would start him thinking about selling snodgrass but you've got no chance!


08 Jan 2012 11:14:12
portsmouth to anounce bastit company as there new owners headed by david dein!(6)(8)Can't really see somebody with the reputation of David Dein sinking that low to be honest.
It will take a brave man to enter that lions den of alleged corruption.Doing the rounds here in Pompey with John magnier as well as a couple of others in a very wealthy consortium....Yeah just like it was doing the rounds with your last 3 owners, who were going to invest in your club blah blah blahIt won't be anyone big, as the administrators don't even know them!! It will probably be either a dodgy foreign busisnss man or someone who owns a corner shop....So far in Pompey we've heard every name from Bill Gates to Richard Branson being linked with taking over our club. Personally I don't care who it is so long as they haven't got a criminal record and have got plenty of money. After the succession of owners we've had we could do with some stability.


08 Jan 2012 11:08:24
Plymouth Argyle are going to sack Player Manager Carl Fletcher ( he will still stay at the club as a player though ). He will be replaced with either, Steve Tilson, Mark Robins, Paul Buckle, Bryan Laws or most likely a man called Richard Money. The new manager will be appointed in the next week and there first signing will be of Stourbridge's highly rated striker, Ryan Rowe.(6)(16)


08 Jan 2012 11:05:50
Norwich City have apparently joined the mad scramble for Nicky Maynard? Where do you think he will go?(11)(2)CrawleyBristol cityPaulton rovers!City till i die (going to norwich)Smokescreen, I think Lambert is desperately trying to put together a package to sign Rhodes.
Lambert & Norwich board usually say nothing about targets until they are actually confirmed, or come right out and say we are not trying to sign him.

08 Jan 2012 10:45:21
David hoilet lookes pretty much nailled on to come to us he has 6mnts on contract left so should be relatively cheep.

Adam johnson may stil be a possiblity as man city have to sell before they buy tevez and bridge being the most obv thw want to get rid of buh if man coty sign another atticking player johnson never getting a gamr he rarely gets on now.

Demba ba 10m get out clause possible chance and with carroll starting to find his feet amd not panicing as much when he gets the ball it seems wise not to spend much more than 10m or so.

As for a cm I can't see us spending a fortune when people link us with tiote etc who would cost 20m + probs. Loan signing or a cm under 8m will probs be most likely(2)(10)David Hoilet?!David Junior Hoilett is his full name...How can he only have 6 minutes left on his contract? When did you leave this post, sir?!

New improved bid for Cameron Stewart by Leicester City and now clarified on Sky Sports News... Pearson means business... Billy Sharp and Kebe already on their way to the King Power Stadium!(9)(6)Sharp's agent expecting other clubs to bid so not a closed deal yet. No bids for Kebe.1.5m for Stewart is a joke; treble that and you may get him, but even then you may have to add another 1m for the Leicester premium!Billy not keen on move to Leicester so is hoping for other clubs to match the get out clause.Why would he go to leicester chey aint going anywhere in the next two years at least'Pearson means business'... so did Sven!What a joke you lot are ! first Sven sign's a complete team, now you have ya Judas back you think you can do it again ? smacks of Pompy all over, will all end in tears when your little owners get bored !Love the jel fans on here. We have hat fulls of money to spend and will while you other clubs cant even afford a half time pack of wine gums. LCFCAgreed leceister have pots of money to spend on players, that's all they can do though, buy their way out of trouble!. Still a horrible team with mr judas in charge, purely greed driven with no loyalty whatsoever to any club.We might treble it and add another 1m
We are Leicester, this is how we roll.

Whilst this is a football rumours website, I have some information that is not fictional.
Jordan Rhodes is not leaving HTFC for any other club in January 2012.
He has pledged to stay and help HTFC achieve the goal of promotion having missed out last year as have other key players that HTFC want to keep.
5 / 10 / 20 million will not buy him in January 2012 no matter which team offers the money.
You need to understand that Town DONT NEED THE MONEY, they are not an ordinary league 1 team they have a Chairman who is a supporter he doesnt need a quick buck he is a multi multi millionaire and a nice chap into the bargain. He doesnt tell lies or stories, when he says no money will buy Jordan Rhodes he actually means it.(11)(10)Saddly in this day and age its not upto the club if a player goes or stays its upto the player im sure if some big club came into offer money for him..he would leave so fast u wouldnt see the dust from his boots..thats football my friendRhodes will instigate move so doesn't matter how much Town might want to refuse. Not worth anything like £10 or £20 millionDont talk tripe! if an offer of 6million + comes in hes gone! ReptileDont be so narrow minded. If someone offered them £10-20million he would be out of the door quicker than you could wish him farewell.He is L1 player,no more than 3 mill will be offered with 50% sell on to Ipswich and hudders can say not for sale but he will put in transfer.i believe there is a wage cap in L1 and L2 so he is on peanuts,his agent will be telling him that he will treble his wages in championship.Yeah wages cap comes in from next year that clubs in football league cannot spend more than %55 on wages. so he will never get big wages thereIm not a Huddersfield fan but hope they stand firm and its not just upto the player - Modric. The summer will be a different story.Rhodes top striker for 3 year at town he won't leave until end if the season


08 Jan 2012 09:18:02
Tottenham are not to sign Jordan Rhodes after scouts went to Friday nights game against Wycombe.Harry Redknapp says that Rhodes is not the player for them.YAY!(12)(9)Qpr in talks with himSpurs to do their usual and overpay for overated playersRhodes would be as useful as a chocolate fire guard in prem,waste money if you mustOverpay for overrated plays? when was the last time that happened?Pav,keane 2nd time, crouch,Overpay for overrated players? 3rd in the prem? nuff said.The Spuds never overpay for anyone, more likely to rob other clubs blind by going in on the cheap when they want someone!


08 Jan 2012 09:14:40

Marc pugh is being tracked by several clubs in the championships including Birmingham, west ham, leeds and Reading. All three have had scouts at the last three games.

08 Jan 2012 08:50:19
Ebanks Blake to Bristol city plz plz plz!(4)(14)He'd be better than Maynard for certain, he's got Premiership experience and the last season he spent in the Championship he bagged 25 goals. If Maynard ends up at Wolves (which I hope not) you could possibly get him in exchange, more likely Keogh plus cash though. But the rumored possibility of a move for Kenny Cooper from the MLS (ex United youngster like Ebanks-Blake that's spent time at Oldham, 1899 Munich and Preston North End) doesn't seem like a bad shout either; I follow Portland over here and he's one of our best players.I have heard of kenny cooper but i highly doubt bristol city will bid for him.I watched ebanks v blues, trust me you'd be better off going in for some like mame biram diouf on loan

Ryan the blueJamie Murphy of Motherwell,would score a barrell load of goals in the championship.He is Motherwell top scorer in Europe allready.Johhny Russell at Dundee Utd,is another one that would do well there.And I bet Bristol could sell the on for laods of money.Just like Burney did with S Fletcher,they got about 4.5 million,on the deal.Ally

Steve De Ridder is fit and will be back for Forest away. He was available for Coventry but was rested.(9)(3)Still reckon should get 1 more good striker in this week remember rickys out for two more games and lee will need time to settle in still have nt made a move in transfer window a bit worryingHow do you know? Most of us hadn't even heard of Lee 2 weeks ago.Exactly no one had heard of himThe important thing is: your scouts had heard of him. No-one had heard of Jermaine Beckford, Fabian Delph, Robert Snodgrass or Luciano Becchio before they pulled on the white shirt.


08 Jan 2012 02:06:04
holtys only on 14 grand a week,his agent has told him if he gets 10 premier league goals he can expect to earn 30 grand a week,norwich or elsewhere,leeds,ur having a laugh,sunderland and newcastle sniffing about,he is settled in norwich though but would love to move back near carlisle.(3)(7)Good player and would do well but Too Old for Newcastle FACT! Pardew has confirmed we wont sign anyone over the age of 26His agent hasnt told him that at all if hes on contract for 14k a week for the next 3 years thats all he can exspect to get unless the club! wants to improve his offer and exstend a contract ..some people make up some dumb rubbishHolt only linked to Leeds by Norwich fans who think they might get Snodgrass. Neither moving in January - Holt wants to stay in Prem with Norwich & Snodgrass preference would be to play Prem league football with Leeds so any move not likely till summer

Bournemouth bidding for Matt tubbs as he's a local lad but he's holding out for a move to either Leeds or Southampton. Bournemouth also after one of Matty fryatt (Leicester) Freddie Eastwood (Coventry) James hayter (Doncaster) sam vokes or Brett pitman (Bristol city). Just depends on who's willing to make the drop to league one


Fryatt / Leicester! - keep up!


Matty Fryatt plays for Hull. Nice one


Since when did matty fryatt play for leicester-wishful thinking maybe


My bad, thought he was on loan at hull


Sam vokes is on loan to burnly mate sort out your facts!!


Brett Pitman Has Said he is Patient and will not look to move


More than likely going to be Hayter or Eastwood to be honest mate.... Wolves accepted Bournemouths bid for Vokes but he did not want to drop lower than championship... You can have all the Russian oil money in the world but if you can only offer league one football then your looking at past it players looking for a big pay cheque.


Only 2 of those mentioned are being looked at by Bournemouth. Hayter, as he doesn't play alot at Doncaster (alledgedly) and Eastwood, as he is a former team mate of Lee Bradbury and since Bradbury is making a habit of signing ex-team mates, the second looks most likely(2)(2)Brett pitmann wot a waste of money you can av im for nothing.

Nicky Maynard heading to Wolves from Bristol City. Involves a fee and Andy Keogh going the other way. Albert Adomah is about to join Newcastle for between £4-5m. More bad news for City fans with Brett Pitman going to Derby for just under a million. Derek McInnes has had an offer for Preston striker Neil Mellor rejected and an offer for Portland Timbers Kenny Cooper accepted.(25)(27)Maynard will be gone, but Adomah and pitman will be stayin, would love to no where you hear all this to, or why you make rubbish up, hahaMaynard will leave for sure but Adomah wont be going anywhere, hes got 2 and a half years left on his contract and would take about 10 million to prize him away. Nobody would take that kinda gamble.After the defeat at crawley,which i expected as city fan i saw no fight no comitment,from city players crawley deserved there win and goodluck to them in next roundMellor is out injured til April

Nufc to sign htfc striker Jordan Rhodes for a fee believed to be 7.5 mil on a 6 year contract !Also Shane ferguson to go to Huddersfield town on a 3 month loan(17)(31)Six year contract!Haha you mean a 5 year contract and the bookies have him as going to everton, think theyd want someone whod be a little more prolific than shane ferguson and their chairman has already said it will take double figures so cummon thats a bad rumourYea like L1players go for that,more like 2mill and doubt it will be higher than championship and even then it is a risk if he can score gls any higher than L1Well didnt ALAN PARDEW sign a 5 year contract, not often seen nowadaysHe's already been confirmed as joining Celtic mate.Mike ashley to spend money 7.5m on a youngster who can score in league 1 really? I think you would have trouble getting 7.5m out of mike Ashley for messiWhy not? Tiote has a 6 year contractYou are the only person that has been about right with the fee,alas,he is going nowhere before the end of the season at least.The best finisher outside the Premiership and only 21.Good luck for the rest of the seasonTiote Signed a new 6 1/2 year contract back in Feb so how would 6 years for a 21 year old be unrealistic?

Also their chairman hasnt said anything atall except he isnt for sale.. and Celtic couldnt afford him FACTNo body signs a 6 year contract and Celtic are too poor to buy anyone!


07 Jan 2012 23:56:55
wolves to sigh Maynard very soon. the transfer fee has been agreed. Keogh going the other way(20)(23)They can keep Keogh. Shame to lose Maynard but his head has left Ashton Gate a while ago.Ebanks-Blake going the other way

Tadanari Lee will complete his move to Southampton next week when his work permit comes through, Lukas Jutkiewcz will also sign sooner rather then later to provide back-up for Lambert. Jason Puncheon's future is over at Southampton and he will be offered to Blackpool along with £2million for Matty Phillips. Lewis McGugan is another player Adkins is interested in but could wait till late January to make a move, depending on Richard Chaplow's fitness.(9)(13)£2M won't be anywhere near enough to prise Phillips away from Blackpool who do not need to sell. I rate McGugan but really not sure he would fit in and wonder how you know Adkins is interested.Hope so. Decent list of players.It is £2M + a (self acclaimed) premier league player2 m + puncheon Read it properly!£2million + Puncheon is more then enough for phillips and im a blackpool fan!Wind your neck in, i did read it properly. If you did your homework you would know there is as much likelihood of Blackpool selling Phillips as Saints selling Lambert or Lallana. Blackpool don't need to sell anymore than we do! Just for you though i'll make it clearer : £2M + Puncheon won't be anywhere near enough.IF your a Blackpool fan i suggest you read your own Manager's comments on Phillips. Roller Coaster (i think) said £4M min and that was about a month ago.I ll be glad when puncheon has gone for good not wanted why is he still here get rid now permanentThat was a month ago and said he wouldn't sell unless it was to one of the big clubs in the Premier league anyway

What he said now after the FA cup game was this: "People will be looking at Phillips now but we've got him and if you're a top five club, come and try and offer a lot of money for him," said Holloway.You are no blackpool fan coz if you would have seen him of late youd know hes worth twice that amount, more than adam coz of goals and age-top prospect-but not till next season.Puncheon is on his way to millwall as a fee has already been confirmed.
