J.menez is being linked with us again but liverpool have no funds but according to some website called peoples pools liverpool could sign him on loan for the rest of the season then sign him for 7.5million in summer. this sounds good to me.but, we need a striker now not for summer so i hope we sign k.jones from sunderland but again no funds, many websites and tabloids suggest a swap deal for babel which again sounds good but why not play babel up front since rafa don't want to sell him. we could sign chamakh for free but i not so sure because we need goals, this lad has only scored five this year. and nicolas lodeiro is a bad idea, just let napoli have him, everytime we sign someone who is the next big thing they turn out bad
just look at lucas and babel to top rated youngsters two years ago and now look at them liverpool flops.besides we have loads of young strikers anyway look on liverpools website and see the amount of u21 yr old strikers we own
nemeth, pacheco, ngog, amoo, eccleston, we don't need anymore, give these lads ago.
anyway, maxi rodriguez should sign soon (i hope)
but these are players getting linked with us
Nicolas loidero(shouldn't sign)
Victor moses(shouldn't sign)
nedum onuoha(loan, should sign)
scott parker(maybe)
pavlyuchenko(either him or k.jones)
luis saurez(maybe in summer)
Arda turan(summer if not menez)
Torosidis(shouldn't once again rafa looks to players nobody's heard of)
and there's three more milan jovanovic(no), jon oblak(no) ezquiel lavezzi(no, would be pointless overated, overpriced, when marouane chamakh is free in summer)
sorry for long comment


11 Jan 2010 21:34:27
O'Driscoll is going to be confirmed as the new manager of Burnley by Wednesday Tea time. His replacement is none other than Dean Windass, he will sign long time friend Nicky Barnby for the rest of the season. Then with the money from the sale of Brian Stock he will buy Billy Sharp. 100% true.

11 Jan 2010 20:26:35
A colleague from my work told me a few months ago "There's going to be something announced in the next few days about Rangers", then a few days later SDM announced his stepping–down. I've not posted sooner but he told me before the new year that something is going to happen this month regarding a take–over, perhaps explaining why Rangers weren't previously able to discuss any new player contracts but this month are. He doesn't know much about it either, but he gets free hospitality at most home games and knows people who are "part of the furniture", who informed him it's people who have been afore–mentioned in the media. Don't know anything about whats happening regarding player/manager contracts though


11 Jan 2010 20:29:31
Chopra to make a return to the toon and if he gets the goals he will be forgiven for going to the mackems if he doesn't he will be hated still!!!!!!!!!!!


11 Jan 2010 20:40:43
No more signings – (loans or permanents) for Everton as Moyes has Distin, Gosling, Rodwell back soon with Jagielka, Arteta and Anichebe a few weeks away too. Yobo and Yakubu will be back in a few weeks from Africa too. Moyes would have gone for Pavlyuchencko on loan (to keep Bilyaletdinov company) had Jo not accepted his punishment ... watch the Toffees climb the ladder.
Next seasons targets include Chamakh and Piquionne.


11 Jan 2010 20:42:23
It is looking certain that Olympique de Marseille will sell Hatem Ben Arfa during the January transfer window should a suitable offer be mede. A firm bid has already been made by Olympiacos and it seems likely that both Fenerbahce and Everton will enter the bidding. So if COYB reads anything other than the banter, maybe a little something for him to mull over. I am certain that Everton are serios over Ben Arfa. Sharkey.


11 Jan 2010 20:42:36
I am a liverpool fan myself and people need to stop talking about money signings none of they wll happen because rafa has been told tht any money raised will go to pay off the dedt. theonly way thy will get a transfer is by swaping a player. this might happen bewtween babel and kenwyne jones.

possibly get maxi on with a pre contract!!!

so stop will some stupid rumours

Celtic will use the rest of the money from the sale to sign Chopra for £2m.

McManus to ipswich for £1.2m with add ons depending on performace and promotion etc. Stillic to sign by end of January and that'll be about it unless spurs swaps come off or silly money is offered for McGeady.

Celtic to sign Morten Gamst Pedersen on pre–contract.

11 Jan 2010 19:13:31
Burnley are about to step up their interest in Nigel Clough. Thet are apparently very impressed with his ability to identify non league players and give them an opportunity in professional football. Rumours are rife in derby that Clough is set to walk. They are true, but he has been sounded out about the Burnley job!!!!


11 Jan 2010 19:16:08
HELLO HELLO HELLO...Why are deluded Man U Fans saying Fabregas will join them. Fabregas will asty at emirates ans IF he does leave (not this or next year) he will go home to Barca.

New look united team for 2010/2011 season:

11 Jan 2010 19:31:45
To the guy who said: Liverpool Transfer Romours:

Maxi – 1.5mil
Onuoha – loan
Kenywen Jones – 4mil
McGeady – 4mil
Turan – 3.5mil
Richards – 3mil

Whilst some of these rumours may seem possible, the prices you have quoted are ridiculous. Maxi will be confirmed, yes and Onouha on loan is also a possiblity. Whilst these are plausible, the others are not. Jones will not be moving anywhere for 4 million, especially considering Birmingham had 9 million turned down for him. McGeady has been valued at 10 million so will not be bought for 4 mil. Again, Turan... I'd say closer to 13.5 mil than 3.5 and Richards is worth closer to 10 mil. I'm not sure if these are typos or you just thought up some very small amounts to put next to players names. Either way most of these players are worth triple what you have quoted. On to rumours... Liverpool will secure the signing of Maxi Rodriguez. Possibly for £1.5 mil, maybe even for free, as Atletico are desperate to get him off the wage bill. Liverpool would get him for free but have to pay him the 1 million euro loyalty fee Maxi is owed. This way Atleti eliminate his wages and avoid paying him his loyalty settlement. If they choose the cash, then they will have to pay Maxi's fees. Liverpool are now being heavily linked with Lewis Suarez. Now I would have said there is no chance of this happening but the rumour is that Liverpool would pay much of the £18 mil fee by swapping Babel for Suarez, similar to the deal in the Turan rumour. Elsewhere, the resignation of Hicks Jr means that 3 others have been promoted to director level. One of these is a financial manger and he will actively seek investment from America and Asia. The Chinese group who have been told to go elsewhere by Man Utd's Glazer Family may turn their interest to Liverpool, buying out Tom Hick's share for 400 mil. This is not a fact, but a rumour that seems to be gaining more momentum, as I've heard it mentioned several times. Re investment would mean that in the summer Benitez could afford to be a little less thrifty and he may set his sights on any of these (if investment comes through... otherwise he's as skint as usual)

Arda Turan 13 mil
Nicolas Lodeiro 3 mil
Matthew Upson 6 mil
Scott Parker 7 mil
Marouane Chamakh Free

Another rumour I've heard (I know it seems unlikely but listen anyway) is that Rafa may swoop for Joe Cole on a free. He is out of contract in the summer, Ancelotti isn't convinced by him and there have been no indications that Chelsea will offer him a new deal as they seek to slash their wage bill. Unlikely but its rumoured.


11 Jan 2010 19:38:03
Kenneth the sheffield united MUPPET ive seen you put loads of stuff on here over the past year and not one of them as come off you talk like you know it all like sayin il know more this evenin.what planet are you on tudgay will not be on his to the lane. sheffield wednesday will go for sedgewick of preston and david healy of sunderland that's it mite get them mite not

so forget about dzeko, zarate, eden hazard etc...
Wenger & Co is just messing about, you will see!


11 Jan 2010 17:19:02
Cash Crisis Club Dundee United are targeting Alloa Athletic gaffer Alan Maitland as their new manager after losing out on Bohemians Manager Pat Fenlon.They are also willing to accept offers for 14 players in this transfer window, in a bid to raise urgent cash in an attempt to avoid going into Administration.Chairman Steven Thompson has already been approached by Scottish Third Division club East Stirlingshire, who are interested in out of favour striker David Goodwillie and have tabled a £10,000 bid, which Thompson is considering.


11 Jan 2010 17:20:06
Bristol Rovers will fund the new signing of players in this window by striking up a deal with channel 4. Inspired by Bristol Rovers part in the "Skins" series, Channel 4 are offering Rovers a "fly on the wall" documentary style show, broadcast in a tongue–in–cheek comedic light, in return for much needed funds.

Rovers want to sign the following:

Dean Windass – player coach
Titus Bramble – shock move for 1m (the lambert money)
Vinnie Jones – out of retirement for the rest of the season


11 Jan 2010 17:21:30
Bristol city news
city will sign bolton defender danny shittu on loan till end of season. The winger that they will sign is jamal campbell ryce from barnsey for £800,000 this will happen by end of week.


11 Jan 2010 17:24:46
Gary mcsheffrey to notts forest and joe ledley from cardiff to birmingham by end of week.mcleish will not go mad with money so no big signings until summer.


11 Jan 2010 17:26:55
"Alan Pardew is also eyeing up several attacking players to increase the striking force at the club. Gary Hooper of Scunthorpe and Nathan Delfounso of Aston Villa are believed to be on the radar, although they would only arrive on a end–of–season loan."

To the man who said this. Why would Scunthorpe allow Hooper out on loan til the end of this season. Scunthorpe themselves are battling relegation, and Hooper is key to their survival. There will be limited movement from Scunthorpe in January, as Adkins wants to keep a close squad.

B Moloney (Nottm. Forest)
C Dawson (Rochdale)
B Paynter (Swindon)

G McCann (Colchester)
B May (Northampton)

Also, another little rumour, Joe Murphy on his way out of Glanford Park. Scunthorpe are hoping to get at least 400k for him now, rather than let him go for free in the summer. Coventry, Leicester and Sheff Utd. all interested.

Hot off the presses. Not from my main source but from a credible one none the less. Liverpool are apparently eyeing up Everton's 19–year–old Jack Rodwell and have made an undisclosed cash plus player offer for the lad. They see him primarily as a central defender and long–term 'local hero' type succesor to Carragher. Personally, I find it hard to believe as he is only 1 year into a 5 year contract, but the source is credible as is the 'local hero' idea.



11 Jan 2010 17:58:46
"So many dreamers on here it's boardering on the ridiculous! Here's a few solid stories.... Arda Turan is on Wikipedia as playing for Liverpool?!.... Interesting."

Mate, at the time it said he was a LFC player, I didn't realise Wikipedia could be changed.I'm sure someone else saw the Arda Turan page, and they could back me up.

LFC to get rid of Degen (unfortunately, would have been a good rm) and Riera, Torres, Gerrard, Kyrgiakos, Reina, Mascherano, Lucas, Agger all staying.

Degen > Stuttgart > 2m
Aurelio to sign a two year extension
Maxi Rodriguez > Liverpool > 1.75m
Chamakh > Liverpool > pre–contract agreement
Ken Jones > Liverpool > 13m

There are a few rumours that i have heard surrounding sunderland in the last couple of days:
Guy Demel will sign from Hamburg for £5.5 million in the next few days.
Maynor figueroa will sign from wigan later in the transfer window for £4 million.
Salvador Cabanas to join on loan untill the summer from mexican side Club America.
Outside chance that Bentley will sign from Tottenham for around £10 million.
Marek Hamsik has apparently been spotted at the Stadium of Light today and could be in talks over a move from napoli.

Daryl Murphy to wolves
David healy to Ipswich or Hull
Still a possibility that Kenwyne Jones will leave if Sunderland reccieve the "right offer", This is likely to be a swap from Liverpool or Villa for Babel or Carew


11 Jan 2010 18:37:39
A no its only few days in but has anyone got any newcastle united inside info are we close to sealing any deals
gary caldwell ?

11 Jan 2010 16:31:20
Celtic Latest,

Dutch defender jos hooiveld has signed a contract with celtic fc, the transfer fee is reported to be around £2 million.

Sean st ledger could be joining him if the celtic board up their previous offer.

Michael chopra could be on his way to celtic too if the right price is agreed.

It's all quiet at the minute abt the possibility of a swap involving players from celtic and tottenham.

Celtic have had enquires abt right back andreas hinkel by a german club. If hinkel goes mowbray will have to replace him and that will mean celtic will have a whole new defence in place since mowbray arrived 6 months ago.


11 Jan 2010 16:34:41
Has anyone got any newcastle united transfer rumurs that are actually true


11 Jan 2010 16:36:10
Hello everybody from greece!my opinion until recently was that only we greek people talk always rubish but since i read this blog some days now i am amazed how many stupid things u come around and post.please post only when u have something to say ... something that is reliable or what ... now, i need newcastle united news cause i am a big fan since kid.take care all, from a PAOK salonika fan and offcourse toon fan!!! go geordies.


11 Jan 2010 16:37:31
Another bit of news i heard from a close friend is that Blackpool may sign Macheda and Gibson on loan, fergie highly rates how holloway brings on players and thinks the experience players will do them the world of good for when they get the nod for the first team. Alot of people say that this will only happen though blackpool agree to the players being able to go back to the club at any point


11 Jan 2010 16:44:08
Barnsley are currently in talks with Birmingham City pair Kevin Phillips and Gary McSheffery, if the Kevin Phillips loan deal breaks down Robins will look to bring back Barnsley born Preston North End Striker Jon Parkin to Oakwell


11 Jan 2010 16:45:47
Portsmouth are my life, I havent missed a game for 3 years! every match I go to there are always rumours and speculations about players we are going to sign. But with lots of things going on behind the scenes at the club, there is no way we can pull these signings off with no money!

One of the rumours that I keep hearing from around the club is Kenwyne Jones of Sunderland. But he is worth alot of money, how can we succeed with big money singing's? Jones is an extremely highly rated player. How much money can we get to buy such a big player?

Another rumour that has popped up a few time recently is Jack Wilshere of Arsenal. Wenger has already said the young player is set to go on loan this season, he has been linked with Burnley. However Pompey seems to be a good place for the young lad to come, as he will most certainly get first team experience here if the likes of Jamie O'Hara moves elsewhere.


11 Jan 2010 16:48:12
Anyone got any rumours who's coming in at Everton


11 Jan 2010 16:48:14
These WILL happen before the end of January!

Senderos – Fulham (£4m)
Campbell – Arsenal (6 month contract)
Flamini – Arsenal (loan)
Saha – Arsenal (£2m)
Wilshere – Everton (loan)
Van Nisterlooy – Everton (loan)
Beckford – Newcastle (£2.5m)
Adam Johnson – Birmingham (£5m + McSheffrey)
Boyd – Birmingham (£2m)
O'Hara – Birmingham (£5m)
Reo–Coker – Sunderland (£3m)
Figueroa – Sunderland (£6.5m)
Brown (Celtic) – Aston Villa (£6m)


11 Jan 2010 16:54:19

Cover at the back and defensive midfield, experienced international, still only 29 and wants to leave Bayern because of lack of South Americans at club (sky).

Fee of about £6 million which could prove a bargain – and that's coming from a liverpool fan!


11 Jan 2010 16:57:50
Berbatov is being linked with Juventus in Italy. No transfer this january. Man Utd will look to recoup £17/18 million. Charlton Cole is being coveted by Utd as well as Benzema, both are targets and both will be signed dependent on the moving on of Berbatov. Hugo Lloris is top goalkeeping target, however Utd are surprising interested in Gomes of Tottenham.


11 Jan 2010 17:02:10
Some true celtic news

Within the next 24hours stillic will be signing for celtic its official

One other exclusive tranfer news is that michael chopra is on his way to celtic and will seal a move by midnight tonight


11 Jan 2010 17:05:32
Coppell being interviewed at Turf Moor today


11 Jan 2010 15:54:22
Ok, now here's the latest on Maxi Rodriguez. LFC had advised his agent that Athletico should not be asking for a fee as he will be saving them the cost of his wages over the next 6 months (he should be allowed to go on a free). Liverpool have agreed to pay £1.3M instead to Maxi as a signing on fee spread over 18 months.

Athletico wanted £1.5M up front so this way Liverpool will benefit with the lower fee and deferred payments.



11 Jan 2010 15:55:13

11 Jan 2010 16:11:59
Rangers have got wind of the possible availability of ex Hearts midfielder Bruno Aguiar, who has not settled in Nicosia. The player was on Rangers' radar last August, but a deal couldn't be done because of the players wage demands. It seems that he is now willing to accept the pay on offer at Ibrox, and may be being lined up to replace fellow Portuguese Pedro Mendez, who is being tipped for a return to Portugal...Iain the Know

Walsall are on the brink of signing former skipper Dean Keates on an 18 month contract and are close to agreeing a deal to sign Micheal Twiss from league two side Morecambe.

The Saddlers also plan two loan moves to cover the fixture back log created by the recent heavy snow, with Coventry and Wolves the clubs involved.


11 Jan 2010 14:06:44
Some of these rumours are hilarious– Face some facts people.

Chavski– won't buy anyone, because the manager doesn't feel he needs anyone else.

Manure– May sign a cheap kid but that's it, they are skint with the second highest debt in the prem' after Citeh who have a lot more free cash than the Glazers! Bit more movement in the summer though.

Liverpool– Again we are skint, but not in the same dire straights as the mancs, its just we recieve more press time due to the bumbling idiots in charge of the club. Maxi Rodriguez is a done deal, he is settling finances with Atletico and is likely to be in the crowd on wednesday. He is the only buy in Jan. Summer will be massive if we are taken over (aguero et al) if we are not i still expect at least Chamakh (free), a young ?british midfielder (?Parker) and Arda Turan, money will be raised through sales (masch'). Torres/Gerrard/Lucas/Agger/Reina will not be leaving.

ARSEnal– Wenger never buys in Jan but i reckon he will this year, but only if the moneys right and it doesn't smash his wage structure. Possibles are Sakho, Matuidi, Mahammadu Diarra (spelling), Chamakh or Carlton Cole It will only be one or two of the above though and he won't break the bank.

Stop with the fantasy football, this window will be quiet the summer will be the busy one. The above is just my opinion and not based on a secret insider or some dodgy scout/agent!!!!!

11 Jan 2010 11:54:49
How the hell will Liverpool sign Arda Turan with Hicks/Gillett in charge? And how in the world can Kuyt fetch 15 mil?
Realistically Liverpool are looking at MC duo Onuoha and Johnson for possible loan deals. The van der Vaart interest is off and so is the Nistelrooy one. Expect Rafa to go for Chamakh but that doesn't mean he will come. Mascherano most likely wants to leave and if he does (only in July) Rafa will target one of the three if Lucas still doesn't convince: Hamsik, Cambiasso or De Rossi. A new centerback is being lined up in July and it is believed to be Mexes if Rafa has the cash or else it's Barzagli. One more thing, Rafa is unlikely to switch to 4–4–2 permanently so signing Chamakh is ridiculous. {editor's note – isn't Johnson out for the season? Thought I read that he had another injury breakdown? Man City one I mean.}


11 Jan 2010 12:06:26
Alex Ferguson will fall victim to the type of ruthlesness he is infamous for. Jose Mourinho will be new Man Utd manager this summer. Jose has accepted the role under the pre–condition funds are available to rebuild the team in his own image. The board's reasons for with holding funds this month are two fold 1) they want Mourinho to choose any new players 2) if United under achieve this season it'll appease fan reaction when the decision is announced.

First of all to the idiot who said torres to real madrid and benayoun to olympiakos, are you thick torres would never go to real madrid because he still loves the atletico fans and he knows they would hate him if he went to their arch rivals.
Benayoun would not go to olympiakos because he is liverpools 3rd best player and a fans favourite so he will definetley not go especially not for a measly fee like the 5m people are saying if he was to leave it would be between 15m and 20m.
Now onto some rumours:
babel(liverpool to birmingham 11m)
rodriduez( to liverpool 1.5m)
hugo rodallega(wigan to stoke 10m)
alex smithies(huddersfield 3m)
sorensen(stoke to bayern munich 5m)
beckford(leeds to aston villa 4m)
david dunn(blackburn to bolton 4m)

Rangers are set to sign Motherwell midfielder Ross Forbes for a reported fee of £700,000. This will go through as soon as Kris Boyd to Birmingham £1m deal is done Tues pm. Rangers will pay Motherwell over 24 months and Lloyds will be happy with deal as the Rangers debt will be serviced until March. Lloyds are now dictating who stays and who goes and Rangers are agreeing to this as they don't want to go into receivership and be relegated from SPL. A final point to all you celtic fans who find this funny Rangers will win treble as you lot still havent got a manager.

Basir Mohammed Savage has been out for 8 months with not one but 2 ruptures of an achilles. He's doing everything he can to play agaim. Never mind be the subject of a near £1m transfer.

Tranmere will bring in Andy Robinson on loan from Leeds Utd.


11 Jan 2010 09:40:56
Rafa will announce the signing of Maxi Rodriguez by the end of the week for £1.1m plus £400k on performance related bonuses. He will also try and sign two more players on loan before the end of the January Transfer Market. These players being a striker and a defender. Bojan will be the striker on loan after finding first team chances hard to come by at Barca. This move will also give Barca first option on Javier Mascherano in the summer for £38m. The defender will be Nedum Onuoha from Man City. He hasn't played at Man City since Hughes left and is not thought of highly by Mancini. Rafa likes his style of play and thinks he could shore up Liverpool's defence. It will also give Rafa the opportunity to sell Philipp Degen to Stuttgart for £2m. Rafa will also sign Marouane Chamakh on a pre contract for next season. Rafa will also be selling players this January but will not receive the funds as the owners want to build up a war chest for the summer. With Andrea Dossena gone to Napoli for £4.5m and Andriy Voronin gone to Dynamo Moscow for £2m, Rafa will sell Philipp Degen to Stuttgart for £2m also to have and extra £8.5m to spend this summer. In the summer he will also sell Ryan Babel to Juventus for £10m, Albert Riera to Atletico Madrid for £12m, Martin Skrtel to Bordeaux for £8m and Javier Mascherano to Barca for £38m, but this money will go towards the debt that Hicks is struggling to pay off. With the extra £20m promised each summer, Rafa will get approx £60m to spend in the summer. He will buy a left winger(Arda Turan £12m) a centre back(Nedum Onuoha £5m if he proves successful, otherwise he will splash big money on a world class centre half) a left back( Juan Vargas £19m), and two strikers(Marouane Chamakh free and Carlton Cole £14m. Should Rafa not need to use the last £10m it will go towards the debt

To the person who posted about new managers at cardiff...

i deciphered your clues and, correct me if i'm wrong, but you can't be serious about paul jewell or alan curbishley being a potential cardiff boss?

jewell would not be an improvement on jones – trust me, i saw derby play a few times when he was boss at pride park. if you don't want flat, boring, passion–less football then avoid him.

curbishley is settled in london and won't want a job outside the m25. besides, i've heard he may be going back to charlton as a director soon.

jones may be as popular as a fart in a space suit at cardiff, but you won't get many better wanting to take his place and work under dodgy ridsdale.


11 Jan 2010 10:27:47
Nigel clough is expected to quit derby this week and take over as the new pompey boss this is because he wants to be at a club with money and a club which is looking to go places unlike were he is now, at pompey clough is expected to be bringing some experianced championship players to the club as derby always made him take players from matlock and eastwood town which have proved to put derby as dead certs for relegation, this has ome from cloughs brother


11 Jan 2010 10:29:43

Arsene Wenger is in talks to bring Mathieu Flamini back on loan until the end of the season, with Sol Campbell being offered a 6 month contract and both going against he's usual policy of not re–signing players.

He will also sign Traore from Cluj OR Victor Moses unless he can get an established striker on loan that has not played in Europe (doubtful).

Sir Alex is furious with the recent displays of a number of players and will let Nani, Welbeck go on loan, Berbatov in a straight swap with Benzema plus Owen's contract cancelled by mutual consent which amazingly will see him re–join Liverpool as they desperately need a forward!!! The Fat waiter has promised him regular starts and Owen will accept a v basic wage as all he cares about is getting to the World Cup. This shock move will allow Benitez to sell Babel, probably to Bayern who see him as an acceptable replacement to summer Madrid–bound Ribery.
You heard it here first!!

Listen up, these are 100% nailed on transfer deals. Juventus' Diego has already become disillusioned with the tactical ineptness of Ciro Ferrara and following the footballing lesson taught to them by Milan yesterday has sounded out a January move to Fulham for £14M with Brede Hangeland in part exchange. Also, Blaise Matuidi is travelling into Wearside today to wrap up a £6M deal from St. Etienne to sign for Sunderland.
Another deal reaching me is that of Shakhtar's Ilsinho who is on the verge of making a £16M move to Arsenal who will replace Samir Nasri due to his probable move to Inter in the next few weeks. Marek Hamsik will also switch from Napoli to Everton in an £11M deal. Finally, Blackburn have completed a deal for Lyon's Michel Bastos for £17M and Manchester City will sign Lukas Podolski from Koln for £31M and Gilberto Silva for £13M + Pablo Zabaleta and Benjani.


11 Jan 2010 04:35:44
First things first to whoever posted..

United team after summer transfer window closes:
GK – Manuel Neuer
RB – Rafael
CB – Nemanja Vidic
CB – Wes Brown
LB – Patrice Evra
LM – Frank Ribery
CM – Yoann Gourcuff
CM – Michael Carrick
RM – Antonio Valencia
CF – Wayne Rooney
ST – Karim Benzema

..this, turn of fifa mate and get real. A team with money issues won't go buying the likes of Neuer, Ribery, Gourcuff and Benzema they will cost 160m between them.
Alot of Liverpool dreamers in this place too linking them with big name signings for millions when they are in so much debt their manager basically said he would sell Gerrard and Torres if he gets enough money to buy some more let downs like Babel and Riera.

And the person who said Toulalan and Lukaku to Arsenal for 7m each – are you mad? a 16 year old with for 7 million? noone but chelsea would do this, and Toulalan for 7m? hes got to be worth at least double that.

This is what I feel is likely:
– Man U will make one or two signings who have premier league expeirience. (not until the summer)
– Chelsea will buy a big name if they don't win the league, if they do then signings will depend on who goes out. (nothing until then)
– Arsenal may suprise people with a signing in Jan like Dzeko or Zarate but wage demands are a problem at a club which works on players being played lowish and at a similar rate. Kirkland may also be a target as Almunia is .
– Liverpool will buy maxi for £1.4m (bargain) and maybe Rafa's only good signing (Torres doesn't count as it was a obvious buy). Apart from this I doubt much will happen as noone will want to join a team who will be finishing in the UEFA cup spot and offloading its bigger names in the summer.

Just my opinion may or may not happen but at least I didn't say Messi to Man U (IDIOTS!) {editor's note – what about Reina, Alonso, Benayoun and Mascherano? Aren't they good signings?}


11 Jan 2010 07:29:48

Now here's one that came from nowhere. My mate works at BSkyB, can't say too much but VERY senior. We all know how conected BSkyB are with certain clubs. Well, SAF is almost 70. He'l be around for a while, but AW is 61. Apparently MU have held a couple of conversations with him. I;m a United fan, that said I have soooo much respect for AW, top notch. May be BS but you never do know, football is a funny old game as Greavsie used ot say!

Rodallega expected to be in the Stoke squad on Saturday to face Liverpool although Birmingham still pushing for his signature. Wigan want Ricardo Fuller and Stoke willing to let him go but Fuller not keen to join Wigan.

David James will join Stoke on loan as Thomas Sorensen is on his way out.

Stoke want Reo Coker from Villa but has of yet only enquired.

Harry Redknapp and Pulis have been discussing the possibility of several Spurs players joining the Potters as Redknapp wants to raise funds for January signings.

Gary Johnson will bid for Derby's Paul Green as he bids to improve Bristol City's fortunes


11 Jan 2010 00:55:18
I'm the FACTMAN. And lets deal in some facts. MANCHESTER UNITED have NO MONEY. The Ronaldo money went to paying off debts. Any money from the sale of either Rooney or Vidic or possibly both WILL GO TO SERVICING THIS DEBT. They are NOT signing Villa or Silva or Di Maria or Gourcuff or Neuer or Lloris or Kjaer or any other big money player being mentioned. Berbatov will NOT be sold as they cannot afford to take a £10–15 million loss on a player in a season and a half. Nani will NOT be sold because no–one would pay more than £8 million for him. Foster WILL be the number 1 after VDS retires, which will be this summer after the World Cup. LIVERPOOL are in a fairly similar situation, but the debt is smaller and can be managed by regular Champions League qualification. The sales of Dossena and Voronin will cover Maxi Rodriguez and one more, likely to be a striker. The main signing in the summer will be Arda Turan. Its already agreed, Benitez signed him knowing he might be sacked in which case he'd have left the club with a super new signing. No–one else will be signed, forget Aguero unless new owners arrive. In which case, remember Aguero again! CHELSEA will NOT sign anyone. Ancelotti has guaranteed it, and he's a stubborn man. As for Aguero, the man doesn't want to play for Chelsea. Its just that simple. If he does leave it'll be to Barca or Real. If it was to England it would ONLY be to Liverpool. ONLY if Rafa remained. ONLY if Torres, Mascherano and Maxi remained. ONLY if they were in the CL and ONLY if they had new owners. A lot of things need to happen for him to come to England. He has a wife who loves Spain and a father in law who would advise him to go to Barcelona or Italy. As for Arsenal, Citeh, Spurs and Villa. They'll make a few mediocre signings but they'll end up scrapping for the 4th place. Liverpool are in awful form, and I'm a Leicester City fan, but anyone who has a decent memory should know that ever since Benitez arrived they've gone on very good runs near the end of the season. If Chelsea and United keep dropping silly points and Liverpool can get on a 6/7/8 game winning run, don't rule them out of winning the title. Thats where the smart money would be.


11 Jan 2010 01:20:54
Liverpool will not need to sell either Gerrard or Torres however they will let both Dirk Kuyt and Javier Mascherano leave. Kuyt is in demand and 15mil for a 30 year old is too much for Liverpool to reject. Mascherano will go to Barcelona for 30mil. Liverpool will spend 10mil on Real Madrid Pair Esteban Granero and Mahamadou Diarra. Babel will leave for 10mil.

The money from the Voronin and Dossena deals will not be reinvested into the squad. Kygriakos and Itjande will also leave.Also joining will be:

Maxi Rodriguez (free)
Marouane Chamakh (free)
Luis Suarez (17mil)
Juan Mata (10mil + Riera)
Giorgio Chiellini (15mil)

It is a big risk by Benitez with massive changes but Benitez feels he must sacrifice Mascherano to make changes to improve the squad in the nexessary areas.


11 Jan 2010 01:28:30
Wenger has £35m to spend, but won't let a penny of it go – he wants to prove that his kids like Denilson and Diaby and Eboue can win trophies without 'big money', and that's more important to him than winning any other way.

However, he's been told by Ivan 'The Terrible' Gazidis – no trophies this year, and it's the sack!

rumour as it that rafa is in talks with west ham over a player, i don't know the better but we have been linked with cole, upson, parker and ilunga over the past few months so i believe it is one of them. hopefully its either upson to strenghen our defence, or parker as he would fit in perfectly in to our midfield.

Some amazing Arsenal rumours– This is only a rumour n when I first heard it i just laughed but iv heard it from a few different people so I thought i might aswel post it. Arsene Wengers current contract runs out at the end of next season (2010/2011) and the rumour I have heard is that Stan Kroenke is looking to take over the club and will make Arsene Wenger chairman when his current contract runs out. He will also bring back David Dein as vice chairman. I feel he is who Arsenal miss the most because look how unsuccessful they have been since he quit in 2007. The major thing I have heard is that Josep Guardiola will become the manager. He is stalling over a new contract at Barca because he doesn't like the favourite to become the new president at the club. Also after the game against Sevilla in the copa del rey he said he couldnt see Barca signung Cesc Fabregas so I don't no if that is a hint or anything. I no Arsenal talking to Guardiola is illegal but its just something iv heard and the man that mentioned it today to me works within the north london club. He also said that's the reason why Arsene might only bring in 2/3 players between now and the end of his contract so Pep has enough money to get the squad to where he would want it to be.Once again its only a rumour iv heard a few times!!!! Im not an Arsenal fan so this doesn't concern me but i live and work near Arsenals training ground in Shenley Hertfordshire. Thats how i heard the rumour but Guardiola will probably sign a new contract this week and make a dk out of me!!

All the talk of Arsenal and Podolski has been reunited from Euro 2008. Being an Arsenal fan, I would love to see Podolski in an Arsenal shirt but I'm not putting my house on it. I know you've probably read on but a friend of mine @ Emirates said that there is a bit of a hype sorrounding Mauro Zarate. Not sure how legit this is as he's let me down before but watch this space.

Southampton Transfer News

Southampton are expected to complete the signing of two players on Monday. Brian Stock, of Doncaster, and Neil Danns, of Crystal Palace. The first deal is believed to be 1.75million and Simon Gillet. Meanwhile Neil Danns will follow in the footsteps of former team mate Jose Fonte and move to Southampton in a 750K deal with several apperance and sell on clauses.

Alan Pardew is also eyeing up several attacking players to increase the striking force at the club. Gary Hooper of Scunthorpe and Nathan Delfounso of Aston Villa are believed to be on the radar, although they would only arrive on a end–of–season loan.

The Elliot Ward deal still looks strong but some urgency has been removed due to the recent signing of Jose Fonte to replace the former–loane Neal Trotman who returned to Preston. Although should Wayne Thomas complete a loan move to Plymouth Argyle, with the Saints paying half his wages, Ward could arrive this January.

Meanwhile Chirs Perry's future at the club could be over this summer as the 36 year old's contract runs out, Alan Pardew does not want to extend Perry's contract, as he will be to old. With Perry taking a coaching course during the summer he could decide to retire from football at the end of this season.

Adam Lallana will commit himself to the club until end of the 2013/14 season with a two year contract extension. Adams contract which runs out at the end of next season is key to Alan Pardew's plans for the club. Adam recently said: "I want to go to the Premier League with this team".

Southampton's midfield could also be become stronger with the possible signing of Scott Arfield of Falkrik. Hamilton have repeatedly put bids in for the player, but Hamilton can no longer match the bidding power of Southampton in a deal of around 300k, with several clauses. Although Falkirk are wanting 500k.

Marek Saganowski is set leave his contract run until the summer where he will return to Poland to player for Warsaw of where he hopes to reignites international career. Or he could be leaving to join Swansea at the end of the season.

Finally Alan Pardew sent several scouts to the recent Reading vs. Liverpool game at the Madejski Stadium. It is believed that wants to loane right–back to last the end of the season to cover the injury prone Graeme Murty. At the end of the season he will re–assess the situation and use the Bosman market to find a new right–back before opening the cheque book.
