Notts County Chairman Peter Trembling is due to leave Notts County later this month due to all the negative publicity the press has been giving Notts County. This has caused him to become very ill with stress, so is retiring if his health does not improve.


In january SAF to buy sergio ramos, david silva, and villa, and neuer. THis is because he feels the current MAN U team is not up to the job of winningthe champo league. THIS WILL HAPPEN


To my dear Man U fans Jose Mourinho or no other manager will take the helm at Man U for the next few seasons at the most. Ferguson will stay for another few seasons yet, he feels he has a lot still to give to Man U. Liverpool will get rid of Rafa Benitez as the Arabs will invest heavily into Liverpool and before they even start investing into a new stadium they want to build a great squad. They beleive someone like Jose Mourinho or Gus Hiddink will be first choice with a hefty budget to quick start Liverpool's assault on the title. With Man City spending heavily and Man U, Chelsea already establishing a strong squad Liverpool will need investment. Jose Mourinho may be tempted by Liverpool as he has already stated how passionate Liverpool fans are and he holds a special place for Liverpool in his heart – (read Jamie Carragher's biography). Next few months are interesting so will keep everyone posted on new developments! YNWA


Benitez to be replaced in 2010, about time too.Winning the League is beyond him. Hiddink and Mourinho top targets with League title a priority.

"R. Majewski – WBA"

Is complete fabrication. It is believed that Forest have a first refusal for Radoslaw, and that the club have already agreed for the transfer to go through in January.

Also, the poster who alledged Forest would be deducted 5 points, needs to go and have their head examined


Rafael Benitez will be sacked along with Christian Purslow should a takeover by Sheikh Mohammed or by a senior Saudi royalty succeed.
Prince Faisal is only negotiating on behalf of senior Saudi royalty. Rick Parry has met with these people during his trip, and arranged a meeting for Gillett and Purslow to attend to. Purslow will continue his job full time with RBS.

The Puyol Arsenal rumours have some substance, it is dependent upon whether Gallas agrees a new contract or not. If he does then nothing will come of them, if he doesn't Arsene will make a serious move.

He has decided that his policy of youth is sound, but not in defence unless the right player ala an 18 year old Tony Adams is available...


Man United news:
Man United will sign David Villa, Akinfeev and Douglas Costa in January and it will cost them approx. £60 mil...
Now the reasons:
1. Villa is not happy about Valencia's current league form and is said to have been unhappy with his manager..he wanted a move to either Barca or Real but they already have spent a lot for other players and have no space for another Sir alex is trying to grab that chance...
2. CSKA say they will listen to offers for their goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev in january..
3. Sir Alex will sign Costa as he feels he needs a young flair player in mid but he will let Costa stay at Gremio until next summer..
Wait for these all to happen in January..'nameless wonder'
