Norwich WILL be bringing in 2 or 3 players from top prem clubs ON LOAN. OTBC.(5)(16)Norwich already have 2 players on loan from premier league clubs, so they cannot get any more loan players in...........Why do norwich fans like you come on here, you give the rest of us a bad name with your lack of knowledge.Kyle naughton and ???Ritchie De Laet from Man Utd, So know Norwich can't sign anyone on loan from the Premiership this season, unless they send one of the loan players back, or sign them.How when they already have 2 loan and thats the max

That's why bournemouth are stumping up 2 million on a new training complex swindons best strikers is a bournemouth reject step back ha ok we ll see in 3 years utc


It appears Bournemouth are obsessed with Swindon. Get real, Ritchie is too good for you tin pot club and why would he want to join your club going down when we are going up !!(4)(6)I can't see Richie leaving a massive club like swinton town.Dear oh dear for the first time you have some money in how many years and all of a a sudden you are the Man City of L1 or so you think. I keep telling you you are a littel club and if your the arrogant guy who has been putting all the messages up about Ritchie and Bournemouth dont understand why we are annoyed well the reason is when you make comments like'if we want Matt Ritchie we will have him' that is why we are annoyed.

Lets see where you ae in two years time and where we are and i know the answer to that already.

Jimmy Kebe is believed to have rejected 12000 p/w at west ham and is holding out for more
Reading to sign Karl Sheppard(4)(7) 

Kebe hasn't even talked to west hamThat implies that Reading have accepted a bid for him which they clearly haven't. Kebe will not be sold in January unless someone bids silly money.

AFC Bournemouth linked to Millwall striker Josh McCoid(2)(7)


11 Jan 2012 22:39:49
Insider at the club saying we are after palaces want away striker Glen Murray.
Only thing I can't understand is why our club official is seeing him in Brighton when he left their in the summer.(1)(6)He still lives in Brighton though


11 Jan 2012 22:21:57
Southampton made their first bid for Hooper today , deluded Celtic fans that think your board do not need the money need to start paying attention. Celtic did not make the Champions league group stages and cost the club vital money that was expected. Stokes and Samaras are thought be strong enough to continue the winning form with a back up striker to be loaned in or bought from a struggling Premiership side. Ed if your contacts at Celtic are as good as you suggest you should know the board are seriously considering the money Southampton are offering and are working on a PR strategy to appease fans when this happens ... ie place all blame on Hooper and his management
A.R.T {Ed007's Note - I have never said how good my contacts at CP are? There is obviously interest in Hooper but nobody I know has said that CFC would entertain any offer for Hooper in this window. Bigger teams than Southampton would be in for him if he was available. Are you sure it's not Kris Commons they are trying to sign?}(8)(23) 

Celtic have 60,000 fans every home game paying good money for a ticket. Plus one of the biggest clubs in the world for merchandise sales. Champions league money isnt that important, Europa League seems to suit. Still played a few european games this season dont forget. Not as if there wasnt any european games?!We are after both of themAre you nutjobs still banging on about this?

who cares if they bid for hooper, he's not going anywhere unless crazy money is offered, AS HAS BEEN REPORTED.
where exactly does it say that this 2bit nonentity of a team have bid, and that celtic need to sell our top striker??

ffs, get a grip! no one has to be sold, especially not one of our top players while we are chasing the treble. celtic fc on a sound financial footing with 3 billionaires on the board.....engage the brain before opening that trap of yoursEd stop letting this stuff through, im a celtic man were looking to get a striker in not out, hooper is the spls top scorer and has scored in europe this year and last, hes 1 of only 3 fit strikers available, theres no way he will be sold unless a crazy bid comes in for him, celtic are chasing a domestic treble so why would they let their top man go with no replacement? its so unrealistic!I hope whoever wrote this has had his medication and has been tucked into bed, there is interest in hooper but celtic (despite what this fool says) do not need the money, we havent made the group stages in a few years and still managed to turn a profit last year. The Ed is correct in saying that bigger clubs than southampton would be in for him but he is at a big club (fair enough in a very poor league) but whats he gona achieve at southampton?? I doubt they will even get promoted

SkDoesnt seem to be much on either Celtic or Southhampton pages, i think i can smell something..........How do you know that Celtic need the money? We have money in the bank and no debt! If we were to sell hooper, we would not be selling for the £5.5million offer that Southampton apparently offered. When Hooper was in the Championship, the same year as Andy Carroll. He played less games than Carroll and scored more goals, the next season Carroll was sold for £35million, now im not saying that Hooper is worth this amount but if Hooper were playing for a Championship / Premiership team, The club could ask easily for Bids in the 10-15million range! Shove the Southampton, Hooper is happy at Celtic, as he and his dad have statedEd firstly after reading back my last post it came across a little rude and for that I apologise as that wasn't my intention when thinking the post through before writing .
Celtic's reluctance to even meet Hooper's representatives about a new contract is either bad man management in business or a sign Celtic will allow him to gofor the right money ... ie 7 million.
Yes Celtic fans will be furious and a PR spin will be attemted by Celtic ..BUT 16 mths after paying 2.4 million for a player to then sell that same player for 7 million would be too much to refuse from a board with shares in the club. Mcgeady transfer has somewhat inflated supporters expectations on transfer fees out of the club.
I love Celtic as a club and believe they are still strong enough without Hooper to win SPL , especially with a new 'bargain ' striker addition which they are aggressively chasing.
A.R.T {Ed007's Note - Time will tell but I have had no indication that Hooper will leave this month.}Hooper goin nowhere. He'd need to be mentally unstable to go to southampton from Celtic. When 1 day he moves on which might be this year might be next it won't be to a stuttering championship team.3 billionaires on the board and still a supposedly skint Rangers have won the last 3 titles. 60,000 every home game? 12,000 are the invisible men. only time you get near capacity is when the champions come to call, cause you're only there to see the RangersFurthermore rangers being skint has only came to light since the end of last season. Rangers are as rich as hearts.I am a Saints fan and i agree Hooper will not come to Saints, i would surgest this was a smelly skate that even started this post. Trouble is with Pompey Fans, there club is ST and would rarther talk about our all the time. However it anoys me when fans say there is no way he will leave because Celtic are a big club, 60,000 fans every week, we are top of the league, etc....surely every fan on the earth knows by now there is no loyalty in the game of football anymore, if the money is right for both club and player he will leave and personally i dont think it matters what club make the bid. It's all about the money.Why is everyone getting so frustrated about this one. Fact is Neither Celtic, Southampton or Hooper are close to the top in this game (as clubs or player) - FACT. To get into, and then stay in the EPL a Championship team would need more than Hooper. To win anything in Scotland in a 2 donkey race Hooper would of course help.What people are fotgetting is Nigel Atkins was Hoopers former manager and gave him the opportunity to show what he can do. Im not saying he is leaving and to be honest I cant seem him leaving Celtic, but if he was persuaded to leave, that pursuation would be from a former manager. Look at how many other players return to different clubs to reunite themselves with their former manager. Never say Never.Big Club / Small Club. Whoes to say. what. Saints have had a good following in L1 and Championship and held down a possition in the top flight for 26 years. They are not "small fry".

Celtic are well supported and internalionall renound but play in a very poor league and require little to achieve European Football.

Owners are business men and will invest what they need an recoup what they can.What exactly have southampton won besides that one fa cup years ago ? you have a massive catchment area yet you are still a no mark club


11 Jan 2012 22:54:31
We are after Glen Murray. (YES PLEASE) He wants out of Crystal Palace, very unhappy their apparently. Andy thorn seen him in Brighton, makes sense could go down to Worthing afterwards as his parents live their.(2)(9)Why would he be unhappy? Semi finals of the carling cup and gets played in every game in which he is available.Honestly, I did hear that he was unhappy living in East Croydon. Murray left Brighton because he wanted to be playing for a club nearer his hometown of Liverpool or, failing that, in London, where he can easily commute. But clearly knowing nothing of the aesthetic qualities of some areas of London over others, he opted for Crystal Palace. So that is why he is unsettled.
wallyBearing in mind he's still living somewhere in sussex i highly doubt that and thats coming from a brighton fan. Also h's from maryport not liverpoolI have to say unhappy reports could'nt be wider of the mark......My nephew who is studying media at university interview Glenn Murry on Tuesday afternoon for a sports interview while on work experience and he is more than settled. Having just before christmas bought a new property near to crystal Palce training ground? Where are you getting Liverpool from? Go some where else and post other rubbish!


11 Jan 2012 22:44:43
Portsmouth FC to be sold to new owners within three days. According to sources from within Portsmouth, the new owners are not believed to be mega rich but wealthy enough to stabilize Portsmouth in the short term at least. Due diligence has been completed and Andrew Andronikou is to announce the new owners very soon. Appleton will be able to keep his current squad and add small additions. Once the takeover is complete (which is close), Appleton will immediately be able to sign George Thorne on loan from West Brom, and Simon Cox permanently.
CVA deadline will definitely be met once takeover is complete.(7)(9)Hope your right?Off course he is right, he probable help negotiate the deal.


11 Jan 2012 22:41:21
Aaron Wildig's loan switch from Cardiff to Shrewsbury is set to be made permanent by the end of the month.(6)(3)


11 Jan 2012 22:24:50

Heard direct from Owen Coyles brother in law.(4)(19)Load of crap1.25mill yer havin a laugh....not even worth 250,000It sounded true until you said owen coyle's brother in law haha yeah and i heard ronaldo's going to southend by paul sturroks mother... give us a break!


11 Jan 2012 22:08:30
Ed, I read in the paper that the Falque Silva deal was a possibility so it looks like that is a rumour for the summer then due to his current loan at Juventus?(2)(3)


11 Jan 2012 22:12:16
Newcastle targets
Yanga mbiwa 6.8 million
Corgnet 5.8 million (maybe delayed til the summer)
Omrani 3.2 million
Gignac 7.5 million
Diame 3 million(10)(15)I think Diame isnt good enough but the others fair enoughI agree hes not as good as tiote but he's the same type of player and in a better team would be great cover
Newcastle may also move for juventus winger marcelo estigarribiaAnd where is this money coming from for newcastle to buy these players? mike ashley wants his money back so expect to be given 8m topsAP Gignac will not go to Newcastle, if he will go to any English club, it will Fulham, seeing as he almost sealed a deal in January only for Marseille to pull out.No way will ashley spend 25 million


11 Jan 2012 22:08:24
Man City will offload Tevez and Balotelli in the transfer window.

City will wait to see if Arsenal go for Podolski or Hazard. If they don't, City will go for them.(6)(31)Do you really think City with Buying power will wait for Arsenal to bid first and then go for them if Arsenal r nor interested ?MAN CITY arent the type of club to wait to see if Arsenal want these 2 players. If man city want them they will just sign them up with their monopoly money. way they are playing at moment will struggle to win leagueCity won't sell bali for sht he's their most potential playerThis is just a guess but you're blatantly an arsenal fan! city will wait? you're taking the piss right? Man City are the biggest force transfer wise in England, Arsenal are going down hill, persides who the hell would want to come to england to play for arsenal? they win f all...


11 Jan 2012 22:02:02
Peter Whittingham strongly linked to Southampton fc. Jason puncheon to be used as a make weight. This deal will only go through if Cardiff are knocked out the carling cup.(5)(21)Ah well it was bound to happen...... He's pretty much the only half decent player who isn't APPARENTLY being strongly linked..... Or definately going to the Supersaints! Yawn yawn, oh yes I forgot they are the 4th wealthiest club in Britain..... Snore!He'd be good, but no, just noHa ha ha ... why would City sell their best player to their biggest rivals ? A not for sale statement has been released & West Ham & West Brom have walked away. Do Southampton have £6.5million to spend ?Yeah we haveNo chance. Southampton might have the money but doesn't mean players will all want to go there and why would Whitts go there when he loves Cardiff has just signed a new contract and we are only 2 points behind Southampton now as they are starting to crumble...


11 Jan 2012 21:55:13
Heard any news on Michael West of Ebbsfleet United? Heard some league clubs are interested in him.(5)(3)If it's non league the Port Vale are probably one of the clubs..... oops getting ahead of myself!


11 Jan 2012 21:56:55

11 Jan 2012 21:23:22
George Elokobi to join Stoke before the window closes(11)(27)Can he hump the ball the length of the field?He has a hell of a long throwNah, can't see it. At Wolves, his supreme physique and amusing celebrations make him a popular figure. At Stoke, Pulis will make him dive into tackles, rip at opposing players' shirts, stand on top of opposing goalkeepers and con referees, not to mention humping the ball up field. Please don't allow this to happen to him.
wallyYou wouldnt want himHe would better stopping with Wolves and playing championship football next season.Agreed.... stop with Wolves!Haha all the bitterness towards Stoke on this page lately makes me and every other Stoke fan laugh, keep it coming!


11 Jan 2012 21:16:02

Dont think anyone will disagree with that. 1-0. Joe Ledley!lolFrom an unknown club, in another universe maybe!


11 Jan 2012 21:06:47
Crystal Palace have had scouts watch Ryan Hall the ex eagle has impressed alot of people with his displays this season.They have also had Matt Tubbs of Crawley watched.(5)(6)These rumours are getting silly now! No more in's at Palace this window.It's quite a realistic target ryan hall has had a blinder of a season so far at Southend but could you really see him leave when they're top of the league and he's guaranteed first team football?


11 Jan 2012 20:58:30

11 Jan 2012 20:16:42
it is unlikely that tommy smith is to rejoin watford after stating that he is very pleased that MH is the new manager of the club and that he can move forward there

source BBC SPORT(5)(10)No but watch Cardiff in this deal, it was a done loan until Warnock got the sackSmith won't go to Cardiff for a FACT. He does not want to uproot his family, that's the only reason he considered Portsmouth and QPR in recent times.Good job his next door neighbour, MAlky can give him a lift then !


11 Jan 2012 20:16:38
Rumour going round st ledger not interested in Ipswich at all and wants move to Leeds loan till summer with option to buy in the next window(19)(11)That would be the rumour you are making up and posting on here? PJ already said that its Leicester that want to hold onto him until after cup replay. You can't sign a player that the parent club won't release. SimplesWhy would sean want to play for a club heading for 3rd tier english football, when he could come to leeds who could be going other way?

11 Jan 2012 19:04:28
Kris boyd may join villa on trial to prove his fitness befor signing a short term deal with the birmingham outfit.mcliesh worked wiv the scottish striker at rangers and knows his pedigree well n is looking to add depth to his squad wiv limited funding.(10)(17)He has no Pedigee, Chum! I cannot believe Top Championship or Premiership Teams could even consider some of these folk that are considered by Scots to be decent because they scored goals in the SPL! Laughable!We aren't lacking strikers now we need a midfielder & how are we an outfit!?No pedigree,give me a break,what about Carroll,35 yes 35 million,talk about inflated price,Boyd is no Drogba or Van Persie,but he scores goals,who are Villa? Living in the past,WBA,bigger club now.Feel sorry for big Eck,fickle fans you Villans,get behind your team,you aint that good to be fussy.Are you a complete person wba are absolutely nowhere near bigger than villa and never will be i believe villa just need a good manager and they will be fighting for europe again no doubt. I am not a villa fan but i cant beleive that anyone else in birmingham would say there a bigger club than villa there a huge club.Think Carroll will actually prove himself in time in the Prem. If he doesn't then you have to look at the Liverpool deal that was done overall. Got rid of someone who had lost all he had for £50M (proven they got Torres best 18 months - and it appears his only 18 months over here) and paid £35M on a gamble. Net £15M in bank for no better (yet) no worse (to where Torres was when he left). People forget that!Both Torres and Carroll though are worth at least 20 times a Boyd though let's be fair now!I would not leave Torres in charge of my wheelie bin neve mind a for carroll what has he actually done ? had 1 good season in the championship. Boyd would be a good squad player and villa need goalscorers


11 Jan 2012 18:53:11
Wba are interested in ivorian left back boka who has only 6 months remaining on his contract.the african is looking for a move to england and looks likly now to be heading for the hawthorns for a cut price fee.(14)(4)The only trouble is his height or lack of it oyjerwise good player


11 Jan 2012 18:50:33
Big sam is ready to bring in blackburn striker jason roberts who isnt wanted at ewood.the former wigan and wba striker was hoping to stay in the premier league but looks likely to make the switch to london with the hammers.(12)(9)Unless he gets rid of piqs or carew doubt it both are 33+i can see another striker coming in but roberts nah think notHes signed a 6 month deal today at barnsley


11 Jan 2012 18:46:41
Hi ed the rumours are still getting stronger hooper going to saints is there any truth ? {Ed003's Note - It would take a big offer for Celtic to sell }(9)(15)It only seems to be southampton supporters that are championing this move, Celtic dont need to sell, Hooper is 1 of only 3 fit Celtic strikers, and celtic play all 3 each game, hes on record as saying he loves life in Glasgow and only recently, and hes also talking about a new contract! please put this one to bed, unless southampton come up with £10m which i havent seen reported anywhere, then its simply not going to happen. PS Celtic are top of the league and chasing a domestic treble, to sell the SPLs leading goalscorer midway through the season is plain crazy! does this end the so called 'rumours' ?
willybhoyThe only reason they're getting stronger is cos people like you keep posting this non-event!!

it's like, if i keep saying something over and over, you start to believe its true....a bit like how brainwashing and mind control worksYou dinlows forget that Hooper played for the current Saints manager (Nigel Adkins) at Scunthorpe and would love to play for him again ......Not sure what a dinlows is, but doesnt matter how much the player loves nigel adkins, southampton need to pay Celtics valuation for the player which would be in the region of £8-£10m and if they wont pay that then he will remain a Celtic player...... simplesEven if that were true why would he leave winning trophys every year,playin against the likes of athletico madrid in europe every year and bein hero worshipped by millions of fans around the world to join a below average english side who have won nothing.hooper will leave one day but it will be after scoring barrow loads of goals for the hoops,winning numerous trophies and to a top 6 epl team.sorry saints fans hes ours and we r keepin him.hail hailBelow average English side, only a Deluded Celtic fan could talk so much rubbish,Southampton are on the up with money to spend. If Hooper was to move to a championship side it would be a step up for him.Hooper will leave for £6m & Southampton could be a positive move for both & the club.I don't support either clubs but Celtic/Rangers would only be mid table in the Championship, they are years behind & the gap is getting bigger every year.Winning trophies in the scottish PL is like winning the meat draw in ur local boozer!! NOT VERY F+++ING HARD! UP THE SAINTS! LEE SFCCus we are Southampton we are top of the league oh yea coyrds we are so up ourselfs never mind I love the southAnd southampton have a chance of doing what exactly?

what have they won?

thought so......jog on you insignificant lotAs a pompey fan its nice that due to this site all fans are realising how annoying southhampton fans are just because they think doing well at christmas = instant promotion and top 4 in the perm next year GET OVER YOURSELVES


11 Jan 2012 18:43:06

Beckham in talks over possible shirt term switch to westham(9)(42)"Shirt Term" - very good! because that is the only reason anyone would ever (now or in prime) consider Beckham - to sell shirts to the Girlies (or old Womanies as they may now be)!


11 Jan 2012 18:59:43
Lovenkrads to rangers(14)(20)Lovenkrands will not be joining Rangers ,
Every transfer season he is rumoured to be joining Rangers .

I'm good friends with his wife Theresa and have been for many years in Govan and in talking with her she says he will never be back at rangers as he was not treated well at the end of his last spell there. And she said she would never let him sign for them again.She can't stop him


11 Jan 2012 18:59:03
Wolverhapton wanderers are looking to bring in striker giorgio samaras from celtic.(4)(25)I'm not surprised, Samaras has been collossal this season. Hes a totally different player since he moved to the left wing.Is he a striker? Not really! Maybe that's why WW will be relegated.Oh please take him. Has played about 10 decent games since arriving at celtic, 5 of them in the last 6 weeks.Nooooooo please for the love of god nooooooWhen he fancies it, he's fantastic to watch....all the skill in the world and pace to burn, but he just doesnt turn up most times.

this season though, he's looking like the player we thought we were getting

a great squad player i think, but dont expect him to bang in the goals for youNot a striker or a winger,a poor mans Freddy Mercury lookalike,Wolves should avoid,far too selfish,one good game in twenty,if your lucky,save you money.Have you watched him recently? He has been outstanding this season. Tore a very decent Udinese side to shreds. Or are you a diehard internet fan who doesnt actually watch the side?One swallow does n,t make a summer!
you said he,s only just started to perform at Celtic,How long as he been there ?
Nuff Said.He has been in exceptional form for most of the season yet you still slate him? he hasnt perfomed in the past but for christs sake give credit where its due, Sammy has been possibly the most important player in turning around the 15 point gap.

According to a well-informed source, all is not as it seems at Manchester City. To make it short.. the higher-ups are incresingly growing frustrated with Mancini. In short, the failure to reach the last 16 od the CL and inability to win the premier league is making TPB consider a move for Mourinho or Guardiola with an "mind-blowing" offer...(8)(23)Doubt it.What does it seem then? Because from here it seems, and always has done as soon s the money came in, that it is a club that has aspirations above what it really could achieve over any length of time considered noteable, and a club that before long will implode at heavy force!Utter garbage...Clubs in crisis. 3 points clear at the top

source: talksport.(12)(6)But not as good - frankly v poor!You have to be joking,let Crofts leave? Never in a million years!So he's a holding-midfield player who is the equivalent of two box-to-box midfield players. Why don't you go watch him before you pass judgement?

Hello stoke fans, wednesday fan here, any news on marshall?

He should extend his loan spell till the end of the season with an option to sign permanently as he's 1 of 6 players who pulis wants to move on

Yeah leic are interested in him!

His agent said that he will sign for a championship side this month as 4 or 5 are very interested.

You might sign him on loan, but he's just penned a new deal at Stoke, as Pulis he's him as one for the future.(8)(2)Is he a giant fouler? Must be if Pulis wants him.Joining barnsley on loan for rest of season

heard from a reliable source crystal palace have had a bid accepted for leeds frontman Luciano Becchio and have also placed a bid for notts forest centre half luke chambers.
There is also a strong possibility that Nathaniel Clyne will sign for Manchester United and he will be loaned straight back to Palace like what they did with Chris smalling.(3)(24)Dream onI think not, that would be a step back for becchioMan Utd never loaned Smalling anywhereOnly loans coming in at Palace, Your Source is rubbish. We are not after a permanent centre back. Man utd agreed a deal with Fulham which included Smalling staying until the end of that particular season. Fact.

I was at St Marys tonight picking up forest tickets for saturday and rumour has it that Hooper had talks with SFC chairman in Mancester today and the word is 4.8m + punchen, this being why the didn't let him go to Blackpool yesterday
no smoke without fire!!!!COYR(24)(16)Utter piss, Hooper was training at lennoxtown today, and was having physio to clear up his niggling injury so that he will be fit for the game against Dundee Utd
total bcks by deluded Southampton supporters, Hooper is signing a new contract extension at CelticWhere would you rather live, Southampton or Glasgow. Irest my case.Wait wait, he was at southampton yesterday coming out of a black mercedes, when in fact he was having dinner in a place called the ubiquitous chip in glasgow, and today he is in manchester when celtic have told southampton not to bother bidding for him unless they at least match the 8m valuation.

get a grip you stupid southampton fans, he aint going anywhere, and defo not dropping down a level to fight a relegation battle year in year out lol!!Right enough mate, southampton is a 1thole, its a no-brainer, a bit like saints supporters {Ed003's Note - I'd live by Loch Lomond given the chance}He's signing - its all over football championship managerOr stay in scotland and play 4 decent games a season .come down south and prove yourselfFunny thing is southampton could pay 8M if they wanted! Adkins had a budget of 20M to spend this season and he has only spent about 4/5M so far so that's why he has said 3 or 4 quality signings this window ! Plus if Adkins wants him enough cortese will strike a deal !

Saints have today successfully won their appeal for a work permit of Japanese striker Tadanari Lee. His case has now been approved by the football authorities. His record of 15 goals in 32 J-League games has made Lee one of the hottest properties in Asian football. He will head back to England as soon as possible in order to sign his contract with the Club.(18)(4)He's already in England, training with the clubNo, I assume he went back. It says on the Saints OS that he will need to travel back to England.It says on the OS he will be coming back, temporary visa would only let him stay so long.

In : Henry on loan (done)
Kalou £3 million
Left back on loan until the end of the season

Out : Chamakh

In the summer i think the following will happen

In : Podolski £10 million
Abidal (Free)
Gourcuff £18 million
M'Vila £20 million (Maybe)

Out: Rosicky £3 million
Bendtner £6 million
Vela £4 million
Squillaci £2 million(14)(23)Abidal on a free .... pfft , get real!Bendter is never worth 6 million, hes overrated, cocky thinks hes GOD! more like 1.5 million.Albidal's available on a free? surely not? he'll be going somewhere better then Arsenal me thinks, or back home to PSG... M'Vila's a massive possibility but at £20m sounds abit risky, Gourcuff you're dreaming he's too expensive, Wenger will not take that sort of risk, the podolski one sounds pretty much right, don't think you should bother with Kalou not sure he could add much to the team...Sunderland fan here, if you think Bendtner's worth £6m mate your dafter than he is. He's ShE aswell!Bendtner is not worth 6 quid never mind 6 million, i should no ive watched him all seasonWho is gonna pay 6m for bendtner doesnt put nothing in it plays on the wing more than in the middleWenger+all that money? Nah that does not add up!We won't sign that many in summer. Hope so tho. And we're Probly sell moreI am a sunderland fan as well, sit behind one of the goals and can honestly say have spent more time near the box then useless bendtner, 6 mil wudnt pay 600,000Abidal is out of contract at the end of the season. Obviously dont know much about footballWenger should sell both ashravin and chamakh

The chase for Billy Sharp heats up.

Sharp has agreed to stay at the Keepmoat, but before any deal was signed Aston Villa have placed an offer on the table that Doncaster cannot refuse.

Reports say that Villa are offering £3-4 Million for Billy Sharp, Willie McKay is apparently enquiring about the possibility of Sharp being loaned back to Rovers until the end of the season.

Sharp now has 3 offers to consider and recent reports are suggesting Championship side Leeds United may be prepared to make an offer for the Yorkshire man...(7)(22)Need to get ya facts sorted got a 1.85 mil release clause that why bin offered new contract at donny keep it real!!!

LCFC by end of weekIf sharp stays it shows his ambitions are pathetic, will he get regular prem football ? i'll let yu answer that but i no wat i think.
west ham or leicester, probably leicester if i honestly think1.85m is the release clause, makes you look like a muppet mate ;)Leeds give over we might offer £3.00 to £4.00 not million kb wont spend that kinda moneyIt is clear that sharp don't want to go to Leicester as it is nearly a week since they met the buy out price and he has not taken 1 step towards going for talks,bit embarrassing for Leicester that.Sharp is keeping his options open, everything is in his hands, he will wait to see what offers come on the table and will move to the club that best suits him and gives him the most playing time and chance to get prem football. He is a yorkshire lad born and bred and just wants to play football, if no decent offers come up he will extend his contract at donny and leave in summer / next jan

From inside the board room

Sp eaking to Dave Allen he has confirmed the only reason Sheirdan is in a job is that they cant afford to sack him with a four year cotact
He has lost all confidence in him and does not speak to him about football matters

Chesterfield will be making no signings this january and expect to see four players going out on loan


Possible if the four go two loan signings at best just to keep the fans paying money into the club.

His 5 year plan for championship football has long gone and he now sees Chesterfield as a top half at best division two club, he intends to sel his share once saltergate has been sold(3)(9)

Wasn't dani pacheco loaned to atleti, who then loaned him to someone else? all the media outlets that have reported this seem to see no problem {Ed001's Note - that was agreed at the outset of the loan and within the agreed contract. Amending a contract is a bit more difficult than simply agreeing an initial loan. It is not as simple as Spurs sending him out to someone else.}Another senseless Saints fan.

Carlisles squad cost next nothing but Gregg Abbot has stilled singhed one of the best player i have seen out sidem the Premier league shame he is not show it all the time.(1)(9)Leeds(sorry Ken Bates)got a few mil for Tom when sold him to Chelsea. Suppose the potential was there.Go on then, tell everyone all about the "obseen" amount of money HUDDS hav spent.

Gary Hooper to sign extended contract with Celtic, he has no wish to leave, and will not sign for Southampton as thats a step backwards.(28)(30)2 steps forward if you ask meBackwards step my ae Championship is a by far superior level than the spl and saints who are also very much promotion contenders, just another spl fan with out a clueCeltic is a Scottish side... Awful southampton step forward more likeI'm a foxes fan and I find it hard to believe he would think Southampton is a step back,league 1 is a step up from splA step backwards LOL im not even a saints fan and i know id rather be playing for the saints that celtic europa sounds good until you get knocked out in the first round, the championship is much more competitive and the standard of football is alot better celtic are a tin pot club snmNo one did.No one is asking you!!!!!!!Money Talks. He will move, if for nothing else the shopping :)

Not sure if he will curt it in the Prem though?10 steps backwards if you ask me...southampton will allways be a mid table championship team..will never play european football or get into the england team playing for southampon...mid table prem team will be his next moveI think Celtic fans need to understand that players playing for either of the old firms against he rest of the Scottish premier league are generally playing teams that have a standard below at least the top half of championship and thus players tend to look better then they are, every game played in EPL and championship is tough and this improves players.To put it another way saints dont play in front of 50000 fans or play in europe and never will!He's moving to west ham he comes from Essex and was at spurs as a kid then Thurrock he wants to move near to he's family which is 15 mins from uptown parkForget about spl being L1 standard you just do not leave a club like Celtic for a club the size of SouthamptonSaints have played in europe as recent as 2004/5 and will do again...clueless people write person things i think!Saints play in front of 30,000 and will play in europe AGAIN, this spaceSaints is a big big step backward for Hooper, he has already outscored Andy Carroll (£35m) in the Championship and he was with a much weaker side, so if he leaves celtic for the £8-10m hes worth, it will be to a bigger club than saints!Uptown park? is his girlfriend called downtown abbey?

United rumoured to be looking at Neven Subotic, With United seeming to have injuries galore, Sir Alex wants a big signing and player for the future. Subotic is both. Slotting in alongside smalling a CB and Vidic's long term replacement, Fergie may be looking to buy him within the newt two weeks.
A friend told me this earlier today and I dont believe him, Subotic is a first team player at dortmund so why would he want to switch that with United where he would,nt be playing as regularly as he is now.
Personally id loe to see him at United but i just dont see it happening.(12)(17)


11 Jan 2012 14:53:41
Disregard anything you hear from Portsmouth's parent company's administrator Andrew Andronikou about a takeover group today.

The group identified as being led by Joseph Cala is nothing more than a 'stalking horse' representing Chainrai as he seeks to regain control of the club to recoup his investment. Andronikou knows what's going on and is reluctant to sell to them for this reason.

There is however another group, who are the serious buyers and are the ones with no links to previous ownerships. They are the ones in the front-seat for the club. The stalking horse bid is only there in case the real deal falls through (which is looking unlikely).

The only reason details about this third group haven't been leaked is because they're doing things properly - a first for PFC.

Due Diligence has been completed, and the FAPPT is being undertaken as I type by the Football League.

Pompey are, regardless of what other fans think, on their way to finally being a stable club. The impending new owners are deadly serious about their intentions. They may not have the mega-bucks to contend with the real big boys, but there will be more than enough in the pot to turn the club around and get it back on its' feet.

Of course, I expect no-one to believe this. More fool them. Expect to hear more developments on this after the next FL meeting this week.(9)(14)As much as it would be nice to see the club stable, and this is coming from a Southampton fan, there are several contradicting reports. I personally live in Portsmouth and am friends with someone that works with the Youth set up at portsmouth (and we all know that the youth is the first thing to get cuts), and he is very much under the impression he isnt going to have a job very soon. From what he has been told, it was a risky and bold move announcing a new owner coming soon to try and interest other investors, but hasnt worked.Good Luck Pompey from WHU fan.Great club, excellent fans. Not sure about Appleton, but he seems to have settled in okay. Best of luck getting the finances sorted. You should get Ken Bates to move your numbers around a bit, that helped us. For a bit.
wally {Ed001's Note - you mean excellent fans apart from the tit with the bell?}Comment 1 - Your friend is under that impression based on the club's current status. Whilst PFC is relatively self-sufficient, cuts would be made in areas if a deal falls through. From what I've heard - and I admit it isn't much, I don't know the identities of this group, only that they are genuine an have no links to previous owners - the deal with the main group is going as planned. Hopefully he will not have to seek alternative employment anytime soon.

Comment 2 - Thank you, I look forward to our match this weekend, although I do suspect you'll edge a win.

Comment 3 - Thank you for the kind words. Appleton's doing a grand job for us at the moment, despite our 4-0 loss to Chelsea in the cup, he decided that a loss is a loss and at 1-0 decided to go for it. We prefer to see our lads battle away and lose 4-0 than just shut down, become defensive, hoof the ball and keep it at a dull 1-0. We like him. Straight-talking and seems to get on very well with the players. As for Ken Bates - no thanks, Leeds are welcome to keep him.

Ed001 - The tit with the bell even gets on our nerves at times! He means well, but can be a bit over-bearing - especially once he's had a few jars!I imagine this friend in the 'youth set up' is someone who is part of the football in the community set up doing football coaching for schools. not quite the same thing.

Blackpool to sign MB DIOUF. Not sure on a loan or permanent deal, but will sign before the team departs to Ipswich Friday.(13)(7)Be a good signing for you lashers!Well that's funny as Cardiff city and united agreed a deal with eachother but diouf himself said he doesn't want to go down to the championship. And that's a factMore likely that Diouf doesnt want to go to a 3rd world country.


11 Jan 2012 14:51:19
Apparently Newcastle tried to sign him but he failed the medical so why would Stoke sign him ?.

Probably the same reason you signed Demba Ba after he failed medicals at Stoke, WHU and Newcastle, if it is only on a loan there isn't alot to lose the same as Castle signing Ba on a free transfer...simples(4)(7)


11 Jan 2012 14:50:22
Man City close in on signing of Christian Chivu. Good back up for the side! I don't know the fee but it could be agreed for him to join at the end of the season on a free transfer as he is out of contract.

Shaun Goodwin, 21, to sign for Sheffield United! Born and bread in Runcorn, he grew as a highly rated figure skater and then transferred his skills onto defending in the game we call football. The 'MASSIVE' Sheffield Wednesday fan has been playing football since the age of 12, and got scouted by Crewe before being released 1 month ago. There has been rumours that he will return to figure skating if a club doesn't move in for him. This is unlikely however as sheff utd are in for him.(2)(6)What a beautiful story..

Vagna love too spurs with roman pav heading the other way. Also spurs looking at doumbia from cska for around 15m. Also in talks with blackburn over a 17m double swoop for hoilett and samba with bassong going to blackburn. Dos santos to savilla and gomes to santos in brazil. Tim krul also heading to spurs for as little as 10m(8)(17)Tim krul to spurs in yor dreamsHaha... so they will both CSKA moskva first option striker in doumbia and wagner love... forget it... and not that cheap no way. doumbia 25m at least and vagner love, not for sale i thinkHave i missed something when did spurs hit a jackpotOne of them will be at White. Heart lane in jan. Doumbia hopefully

According to Guillem Balague on Revista del la liga last night.There are no truth in the rumours Real Madrid are set to bid/buy Luis Saurez in the January transfer window.He also said that Soldado/Higuain will not be moving anywhere this window.
According to him everyone is skint in Spain.
So sorry lads to bring down all our hopes,but realistically were they ever going to join us,without a champions league guarantee?(5)(9)


11 Jan 2012 14:29:56
What's with all the arguing between Bournemouth and Swindon? I'm a real Bournemouth fan and I know that Matt Ritchie wouldn't come to us, mainly because we don't want him. He's not as good as Pugh and Malone, therefore, not needed. Don't listen to the stupid-a$$ fans on here that talk about buying Lge 2's best for £1.5 mil. For a start, their not worth that much otherwise they wouldn't be in Lge 2. Bournemouth are looking at the Championships worst.... Hayter, Eastwood, Pitman. Although, yes, we do have money to spend. Reportedly £4mil, but Bradbury wouldn't spend more than £750,000 on a single player which is why we have only signed that players we have had on loan

CRB(6)(9)I am also a real Bournemouth fan....Ritchie no thanks...but the thought of Bradbury being given more money to spend id frightening


11 Jan 2012 14:27:16
Spurs looking to bring in striker with remy and doumbia top of the list. Also looks like a serious bid for samba is around the corner.(11)(5)


11 Jan 2012 14:26:45
Southampton FC closing in on Gary Hooper of Celtic.... A bid in excess of £4 Million should this deal go through it will open up a chance for Celtic to make an official bid for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes who Celtic have been interested in for 3 months now.(14)(29)Hope bid is well in excess of 4 million celtic have put a starting price of 6 million on himThis is true apart from it is 6 million6 million for a player who has only really proved himself in a very poor League?

Can't see it somehow."Starting price" it's not FIFA.Celtic havent put any price on him! They dont want to sell and Hooper dosent want to leave, hooper is about to start talking about a new contract. Neil Lennon has said players will only be sold if stupid money is offered so lets put this one to bed once and for all.Try 9 mill, Celtic dont need to sell, and why would Hooper go to a nothing club, a club that wont ever play in the champions league, and wont win anything, Southampton are a small clubRhodes STAYING!!!!! for f sake! how many times to the same people on this site need telling about their bullst!Only proved himself in a poor league? What about the Europa League games against Rennes, Udinese and Atletico Madrid? You are talking trash. If Jelavic is worth 10m so is Hoops, 4 years younger with a much better scoring record.Spl fans don't have a clue, they would be lucky to be compared to championship level maybe even good league 1 teams.Hi everyone im dan a saints season ticket holder for 20 years i think this would be a great signing but is he really going to give up european football for us on the chance we will go up to prem! NA + NC prove me wrong!!Thats why almost every member of the Celtic first 11 is being linked with a premiership club? very good.

Hooper will only be sold for a massive offer, i.e 9million plus. Celtic are one of the only clubs in the world in the black and have absolutely no need to sell.Hes proved him self in the championship with Scunthorpe scoring 50 goals in 2 season..hes scoring goals for fun up here and scored in the europa league...y would he leave 1 of the biggest clubs in britain with the best fans for a avrage championship team? DREAM ON SOUTHAMPTON FANS CFCGary hooper is close to signing a new contract and has stated he has no interest in leaving celtic,plus no offence but southampton would be a massive step back from celtic.Hooper scored most his gls in L1 not championship celtic fans and as spl is the standard of L1 then that's the reason he is doing well in spl.southampton are a small club even by championship terms but playing with them in championship would be better for him and make him a better player as he has not played more than a whole season in championship.Scored most goals in league 1!, so has jordan rhodes and hes being linked with half the world haa. FACT is he outscored Mr Andy Carroll in the championship when he played for Scunthorpe and he went for £35m. so if the moneys right (£10m) then he will leave!


11 Jan 2012 14:21:49
Wigan Athletic to sign Turkish Striker Burak Yilmaz and to take Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on loan until the end of the season.(9)(15)Wigan also need to sign an experienced top class defender who can organise the back four, concede too may soft goals.


11 Jan 2012 14:07:02
Palace to be having loads of bids for zaha and clyne! And there is a good chance they won't be there by the time the second leg of the carling cup comes around!(15)(5)You are being silly now big lad!

norwich set to bid 1.3 mill for marvin sordell from watford(7)(22)Seems possible, but price seems a bit low to meReally...... not good enough for Prem?£1.3 million. hahaStarting price will be around the £4m mark, rated very highly by Watford.Times 4 canaries and then you get his right legBetter chance of getting SORDELL than getting RHODES, more like yor price bracketApps G YC RC
23 (1) 8 3 0
Player rating 5.0

doesnt scream 4mill to me! doesnt seem ready for premiership football for what ive heard too.4 words - £10m Conor Wickham. Sordell better and scores more. Easily worth more than WickhamYou person they bought wickham for his potential. sordell is not as good as shane long and he was sold for around £5m. itll be around 3-4 mill for sordellSordell has potential to succeed at a higher level. Good international record as well, would like to see him at Spurs in a couple of seasons.Shane Long is 4 years older than Sordell

Sordell is easily worth the same money as Wickham, he has a much better goal/game ratio that Wickham


11 Jan 2012 14:01:00

11 Jan 2012 13:53:36
Norwich dont need Rhodes, he is too expensive and we dont have a problem with scoring people just want him for the sake of it.(5)(8)Well yor nearly rite. Everyone wants JORD cos he's the best young striker outside of the prem & LAMBERT wont pay big money for 1 playerYour only saying that coz
1. hes an ex ipswich player
2. he would never come to you and
3. you cannot afford him!I appreciate we are scoring well at the moment, but to suggest we don't need Rhodes ? , I would love to see him in a yellow shirt, and think he would be a revelation under Lambert's coaching team in the premier. I realize he may be out of our league because of his price, but I really believe he would be a magnificent player in our team with its obvious attacking policy. He would also get ample opportunity under Lambert to show what he can do, and fine, use us a stepping stone to one of the big 6 clubs in a couple of seasons, assuming he can do his stuff at that level. Going to one of the big 6 too early and he may never get the opportunities to play much which could hurt his development. It's a win win for both the club and the player.
You can never get enough strikers, because scoring goals is what get you points. Come on Delia stump up what it takes to bring him to Norwich, even if hes the only player we bring in during this window.What a statement of intent that would say about the clubs long term ambitions.He's not out of our league at all. If we wnated him we could probably get him but at the moment Hudds will only sell for stupid money and the player himself does not appear to be agitating for a move. We are not desparate enough to get involved in an auction as we have striker who are scoring so arguably have bigger priorities.The Ipswich fan above, claiming that we don't want him for those reason. He hardly played for you, and never done anything to help your club, also he would come to us if he got the opportunity, and would most definitely choose Norwich over 1p5wich. Also we could afford him, just Lambert prefers to spread money over a few players. If we really wanted him, we could get him, but we don't have a scoring problem like you.


11 Jan 2012 13:48:54
Young arsenal defender Daniel Boateng is set to join Swindon on loan till end of the season. He almost joined Swindon in august before arsenal had a massive injury crisis in defence(5)(8)Arsenal still have same defensive crisis so me thinks not gunna happen!



11 Jan 2012 13:40:01
Paolo di Canio has hinted he wants 3 players to boost Swindons promotion charge , the players he wants are Luke Rooney, Andy Drury and a young centre back on loan. Alberto Comazzi and mattia Lanzano are set to be released and return to Italy and top scorer Mehdi Kerrouche is free to leave also.(10)(4)Wont get Drury, he's part of a swap deal with Matty Tubbs going to Ipswich and Drury the other way.

ryan williams
loan 1 month(7)(17)Lol this is one of the silliest things i've seen here in a whileLawrence is dogger why would he go to the prem he couldnt even get in the stoke sideWhy would Pardew sign Lawrence? He's awful, Stoke should be paying people to take him.Southampton can't afford 1.2m for Futacs.CuckooDo be serious. Futacs would never go to scumpty. Lawrence will only ever play in the prem again if we get promoted and williams to boro, why? To oust his brother out the side. Deluded


11 Jan 2012 12:00:34
Ed any new on nicky maynard yet as it says on ssn that there isnt any interest

NickyBowsy86 BCFC {Ed001's Note - nothing mate, there is interest in him, but any deal is a way off. Most teams are just put off by the asking price, I am sure it will hot up at the end of the month when someone sells a striker and needs a replacement. Certainly Wolves have been searching for one and they are interested in Maynard.}(3)(8)It says on the back page of the Bristol Evening post that City are in talks with Swansea, possible Lita or dobbie plus cash deal for maynard


11 Jan 2012 13:16:32
Gunter + Rhodes signed and sealed with Norwich - squad numbers 32 + 33.(9)(34)So if a deal for RHODES is signed & sealed, wen will it be announced, (skysports wud be all over it) I suggest never. Keep up the gud work. AGIf only this is true....
So where are you getting this information from ?AG you are either an Ipswich or Uddersfield fan - live with it bud - the lad wants to join a big club. If you are Uddersfield then time to take his poster down from your bedroom wall.Absolute rubbish. Norwich will sign no-one in the transfer window, because Lambert thinks his side is good enough already. He is, I'm sure you'll agree, about to make the same mistake Phil Brown, Ian Holloway, Steve Coppell, Owen Coyle and Billy Davies all made. You can't keep a team in the Premier League who are young and play with great 'spirit' and 'guile' despite an obvious lack of technical ability, because in the end, you just run out of steam and get relegated. I said it at the start of the season, so I'll say it again. QPR will spend and stay up, Swansea's style of play stops them conceeding too many and will keep them up, but Norwich will run out 18th, and anyone who joins them will find themselves in the Championship next season.
wallyIts not the 'running out steam' that gets you relegated, its a lack in squad depth and an inability to change your style of play once everyone has figured u out!

hence i think you have it backwards, Norwich can survive cause they are able to change it up and bully sides to victory (holt vs newcastle the other week).
then you throw in weekly squad rotation and formation changes, no1 ever has a clue who will turn out every week! thats the difference between say NCFC and Swansea and Blackpool/Burnley in previous years gone.If JORD wanted to join yor so-called BIG CLUB, pls answer me 1 question, Why no transfer request. ! I am a proud HUDDS fan for the record, im sure JORD will still be OUR player come 1st feb. For yor sake i hope NORWICH stay up, as u mite hav a chance to sign him in the summer, just forget it for now. AGHa rhodes is STAYING at huddersfield doesn't even want to leave in january! where you get your stuff it wouldn't suprise if shirt # 32 & 33 already gone, stop talking rubbish


11 Jan 2012 13:14:57
Lanzano & Comazzi off to Dundee Utd. Kerrouche off to Barnet in exchange for Izale McLeod.Lukas Magera, Ales Cibocchi & Oliver Risser alsooff at the end of the season.

Izale McLeod in swap for Mehdi Kerrouche, aswell as completing the signing off unsettled Gillingham player Luke Rooney for 175k. Swindon will also extend loan of Ronan Murray till end of season. They also have shown huge interest in signing Liam Ridehalgh from Huddersfield. They are also interested inanother CB in Jan transfer window, possibly only on loan!(6)(8)Lanzano and commazzi going back to italy mate
ridehalgh has gone chesterfield on loan for rest of the season

Burnley have identified 2 key transfer targets.

Marc Pugh. (It would seem to be on the rocks)
Tom Taiwo. (Burnley are in advanced talks with Carlisle, a fee has been agreed but Carlisle and Burnley are disagreeing over the add ons.

Burnley Express(7)(4)Was also told this today. A fee of £460k agreed with £350 up front. the rest over instalments with appearences the transfer will rise to £500k.

Carlisle will sign Liam Noble as replacement and Oli Johnson who is training with the club now.


11 Jan 2012 13:09:24
Looks unlikely Sunderland will be following up their strong summer interest in Freiburg's Papiss Demba Cisse? SSN quotes "Freiburg have signed Fallou Diagne from Metz after the defender was recommended by compatriot Papiss Demba Cisse." Looks unlikely he'd leave now after having influence on transfer signings for Freiburg?!(12)(7)

SAFC rumoured to be interested in Seydou Doumbia from CSKA Moscow for around £15m(17)(17)So a championship club are going to shell out £15million and about £60k a week on wages. I dont think so {Ed001's Note - Championship? There are only two teams with the initials SAFC, neither Stirling Albion nor Sunderland AFC are in the Championship!}


11 Jan 2012 12:58:07
Swindon are desperate to hang on to matt Richie a host of clubs are after the former Portsmouth player but Swindon woul only get half the sell on fee with his former club getting the other 50% .

Swindon are therefore holding out for 1m .(7)(4)

Aston Villa have agreed 6million fee with Qpr for the sale of their gaint defender James Collins, pending if Collins can agree personal term with the london base team, also heard that the deal was sanction due to West Brom agreeing to sell their swedish international defender Olssen with the fee believe to be in the region of 2.5m, all deal are set to be complete by monday if the players agree their terms,
other transfers going to happen at
Aston Villa are
In but possible
Stevens------ done deal
Olssen-------- almost done
Gomis--------- lyon 12m if bent goes
Okonkwo----- nigeria free if cuellar go
Mikel---------- Chelsea loan

out very possible
Collins-------- almost done
Heskey------- anywhere 1.2m
cuellar-------- Villareal 2.5m
Bent---------- qpr or liverpool 25m

All this will be done before transfers deadline, but not sure of Gomis but I was told that if only bent goes for around 25-27m, cus bent not happy at villa park and he said he will not put his best until his sold, perfectly correct from alex right hand man
you heard it here first,
BARTHY(3)(21)Apparently heskey wanted on loan by ipswich, also heard him being linked with a move to leciester...
Isnt he injured??Dream on as if we would sell Olson for 2.5m to you jokersThink your probably looking at less than half of that for Collins if it happens and Bent isn't going to QPRBent isnt worth £25m and Collins aint worth £6mHe was in Sunderland the other day having talks.I spoke to him at Newcastle airport where i work and he is keen going to SAFC


11 Jan 2012 12:40:13
Mick McCarthy was at the Fleetwood v Barrow match last night. Can only assume he was there to watch fleetwoods star man Jamie Vardy. The cod army's hit man scored twice in a 4-1 win... Whether he did enough to impress the Wolves gaffer into a £1 million pound bid is another matter....but he was there in the corporate suite.

Jim Doc(11)(7)Fleetwood have a corporate suite?

1 mill for a non league player, would that be a record?
Seems unlikely. {Ed001's Note - they rejected a £750k offer from Blackpool, so it would need to be a mill to tempt them.}He was there with another 19 premier league managersThick mick would`nt know what a good player was hes an idiotI heard mick was there for more important business, he was taste testing the balti pues because wolves arent up to his standard!Hes off to bpool carnt you see it the deal was sorted out weeks ago ollie and mellon are buddies so the only (big) stumblin block is tight arsed oyston. {Ed003's Note - Not if they insist on him being loaned back,he's not }He wants to swap fletcher,jarvis doyle and the rest of his no marks for cod n chips,good deal there mick

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will not be leaving Arsenal on loan to Southampton or any other team this season. He has no chancce of featuring in Euro 2012. Luke Shaw is attracting interest and Adkins seems to be showing more faith in Stephens lately. However, a large fee would be needed for Saints to sell as Adkins has stated his intention to breed the next generation of youth talent at St. Mary's.(21)(7)AOC will not leave he has confirmed this on twitter. As for Shaw he is valued at around 4m and don't think clubs are willing to spend that money on a lad who hasn't yet made it into the first team. We have some good talent coming through.Ok, whoever wrote this undermines themself. Firstly, you clearly havrnt seen how bad England is as an international team, we dont have a set team yet, so oxo has EVERY cance of going to euro's and i would rather him there than walcott. Least he does more than run fast.

Secondly, Luke shaw is getting interest yes, he has for a year now, because its january the media are hyping it up again, thats all. And whats this that he has more faith in stephens? What difference does that make? They play in two different positions....Luke Shaw is a attacking left sided full back, stephens is a central defender....No chance of him taking such a huge step backwards !


11 Jan 2012 12:10:50
Reading are close to signing Karl Sheppard of Shamrock Rovers. The striker had a medical on Monday after turning down interest from Blackpool, Cardiff and Watford.

No contract talks have taken place just yet but it is likely that any talks will be successful as Karl would have noted the wonders Reading worked with Kevin Doyle and Shane Long turning them into multi-million pound internationals.

Expect the deal to be done before the week is out.(17)(5)

Oh look Leeds have signed another winger. Snodgrass to Norwich.(5)(16)He's left-sided you fool, meaning he is the replacement for Gradel. Well-played Simon; would've appreciated it even more five months ago though..
wallyI am a Liverpool fan and the amount of wetting their selves over Robert Snodgrass from Norwich fans is embarrassing.even if Norwich are in prem at the moment I can not see Norwich being able to attract a key player at leeds unless they wanted to sell.Snodgrass going nowhere!

jellyfish to liverpool £4.8m, caroll to newcastle £11m.

both complete by the end of the week(18)(7)BY any chance do you mean Jelevic? Jellyfish is st up frontShocking that Caroll commands a higher fee than Jelavic.... the later is a far better player, the former has one england cap and plays in the EPL!Considering rangers rejected 6.5 million don't think 4.8 would cut get your facts rightJelavic is worth more than 4.8m he better than carroll liverpool must feel stupid for paying so much for him and 9mill for adam used to dread seein on the rangers team sheet. he as got a wee bit fitter but no better as a footballer..johny enniskillen loyalThis Jelavic is way over rated Rangers need money to pay the tax manCarroll in a top class player just liverpool do not play the right style for him, he needs good crosses into the box, whenever downing has put a good ball in carroll works the keeper or has scored

as for jelovic, also a good player, shame rangers play in such a poor league, if they were in epl with their fan base they would be as good as nufc, lfc, spurs over time, good club ruined by a weak/unmarketable leagueWe're not taking back Carroll! Jelovic is worth about 500k, the other players in the SPL just make a poor player look average. No mate, if Rangers were in the PL they wouldnt be as good as Newcastle and Spurs, oh no... they'd be relegated pal.What makes you say that? they would have a higher fan base and therefore revenue than stoke, blackburn, wigan, wolves, swansea, etc

I am a newcastle fan and they are just as big a club as us, only problem is the league they are in. If they had the money the english game offers there is no reason that after a few years they wouldnt be a solid top half side at leastPost 7 - Can I take it from your comments that you're a Newcastle fan? If I'm correct, they think that they're a big club because of their fan base. When, exactly, did they win something (apart from promotion, of course)? Wasn't it about 60-70years ago? What a massive club they are! Can't even manage a league cup. Spending power & massive fan base does not equal big club.I hear jellyfish has got a stinger of a left foot

Becchio to leave Leeds United looking for first team football. Possible new striker for Hull City?(6)(15)Leeds will say he is worth 70 m as they are so unrealisticFirst-team football? Erm, he's started our last five. If anyone leaves in search of first-team football its McCormack. Check your facts.
wallyHull ? who in their right mind would leave leeds to join hull not Becchio thats for sureHave you heard of specsavers,my eyes tell me that hull city are above leeds in the table,you were a big club but dont live in the pastWho in their right mind would want to move to Hull?On current form he wouldn't get in your side,he's not been the same player for us this season,i reckon if you bid anywhere near 1m we would sell...we may even treat you and throw in Billy Painter,just because were nice people!Hull ? who in their right mind would leave leeds to join hull

Billy Bremner, Peter Swan, Chris Galvin to name 3Yes at the end of their careers not when they were in their prime. And to the person who says have you heard of specsavers and being above leeds the season isnt over yet and come the end of the season you wont be FACTAny player that has ever left leeds for hull was at the end of their sell by date.class is permanent.always clubs that win nowt say history don't matter,funny that.Had heard he was going to brighton for 1.3mill

Marlon King, the wantaway Birmingham City striker, has put many other clubs on alert after saying he is unhappy in Birmingham. Linked clubs are Bristol City (to replace Nicky Maynard), Leeds United and previous club Coventry City. Women watch out, looks like he's on the move....(13)(13)No chance of coming to city! Shouldn't even be allowed to play the gameSince when has he ever said he was unhappy at Birmingham?


11 Jan 2012 11:32:52
Im a Saints fan but all these rumours are really annoying. Defoe and all this, dont think they will come if im honest, Hopper 'possibility' and Jutkiewics is quite a highly rated rumour only put proper rumours on here not unrealistic ones.(7)(15)By Hopper I take it you mean Gary Hooper. Gary Hooper is simply not for sale at the moment. He will stay at least until the end of the season as his team march towards the treble. He is also on record as stating his desire to extend his contract at Celtic.I am a rangers fan and i can turn round and say hooper wouldnt step down to a club like that from celticWhat a ridiculous commnet. 'Wouldnt step down'? Top of the championship, soon for promotion to the premier league and in the top 10 richest clubs in the country. Clearly a step down from the glorious heights of the SPL. MugGotta love the scottish fans. They believe their SPL is one of the best in the world. Look at their two top teams. Championship quality at best. The rest would struggle in league oneThe only mug posting on here has got to be the deluded southampton fans celtic are by far and always will be a bigger team than southampton who at best when it comes to the end of the season will be a top end championship side FACT.

Manchester United linked with Barcelona Centre-Half Fontas. The Defender claims he is unhappy with his game time at Barcelona and wants to move on to save his career. With Man Utd needing defensive cover urgently a transfer is definitely on the cards. Watch this space!(12)(12)He signed a new contract at Barca in November 2011 until 2015 with a buy-out clause of 70 million euros. Not going to happen. Do some research 1st!.

Co-efficient points from Rangers Europa league run a few seasons ago. It'll be qualifiers for the forseeable future after that though.


11 Jan 2012 11:15:46
Just like to say to all the people that said fontaine is leaving Bristol City you are all wrong he has signed a new 2 year contract at ashton gate most of you on here are just hopers and just make up sht all the time if ur gonna post at least have a reliable source

NickyBowsy86 BCFC(8)(6)Intresting that he didnt move to southampton after undergoing a medical. Is he out injured at the mo?He is injured but only untill the beginning of February so not to long i suppose he wanted to stay because he is a fan favourite and loves the club that would be my guess

WEST BROM ARE AFTER MAN UTD MIDFIELDER MICHEAL CARRICK .THE BAGGIES ARE BELEIVED TO HAVE HAD TALKS OF A CONTRACT OF 12 MILLION BEING THE BAGGIES BIGGEST SIGNING EVER RECORD. HE HAS ALSO BEEN SPOTTED AROUND THE BLACK COUNTRY SO THIS SOURCE I FOUND MUST BE TRUE.(8)(33)Yes because united are struggling for a decent midfield and there going I sell there only decent oneWhere do i start? All rubbish!More chance of Walsall if he is in the Black Country then, can I reccomend getting your keyboard fixed aswell as your shift button seems to be stuck?This must be true its in big lettersNot suited to West Brom's brand of hoof ball.

wallyAll clubs interested in Taarabt laughed at his £12-15million valuation and rightly so. He is an overrated, average player that loves himself. He has done nothing all season and I think QPR would be better without him. People like him just dont have the intelligence to play in the prem.

Pilgrims boss Jason Lee is set to make a number of January moves in the January transfer window.

News coming out of the Jakemans Stadium is that Jase, affectionately known as 'Pineapple Head' for his wacky haircut in his Premier League days, is under pressure from the Boston fans to bring in some big names in January.

Former trainee Alec Robinson is set to be Lee's top target to help plug holes in a leaky defence.

The Source - the only place for Non League news!(4)(2)Robbo is a vastly experienced, cultured defender who knows the club inside & out. good move on big jase's part if you ask me


11 Jan 2012 11:00:33
Mick McCarthy will ressurect a move for Seb Bassong from spurs as it now looks highly likely that his first choice target Nedum Onuoha will be joining QPR, MM is desperate to bolster his defensive options but it might be a case of players leaving molyneaux before anyone comes in. Kenynne jones is also very much a target.(20)(6)


11 Jan 2012 10:50:06
Just passing on what i've been told this morning. Didn't believe it myself but here goes. West Brom have enquired about taking Andy Carroll on loan for rest of season with Liverpool paying large pecentage of wages. Would suit both parties as West Brom looking for a target man and Carroll would get games there which would benefit Liverpool.

This person has given me good info in the past but i'm not so sure about this!!(11)(30)Dreaming Boggie....zzzzzzzzNo need fot that. He/she didn't say it was happening , just that they had asked. even said themselves is sounded daft.
no need for the boggie jibe...just someone passing something know. what this site is for!^^^why not just click unbelievable rather than being a prat !I would of clicked unbelievable if there was an option....Just to clarify, there is a difference between a rumour, which has the potential to actually happen, and something fabricated, which just simply isn't going to happenWhich is this then?There is an option of unbelievable under the actual rumour dingle!Not on this page there isn't...Liverpool won't let Carroll go, who else have they got up top apart from Suarez and Kuyt?^ sensible reply at last. Clearly not a dingleAfter watching Carroll this week i'd be surprsed if Albion would want him at all

looks like matt ritchie is off :/ bournemouth are quite rich now and can offer better football
please dont hate, from a swindon fan


Rubbish - Bournemouth are a small club and its a move back not up.


Finally a swindon fan with a bit of sense!


I'd not want Ritchie for more than 500k. Not a question of being rich, we're only spending monies brought in from our sales. But good to have an invester...


Look players dont want to go to Bournemouth you are too small and today you have bid for Tubbs and that has been rekected there is no way you will get Ritchie for 500k seems you bid upto 600k in November for him plus he has stated he wants to stay as there is a revolution going on at STFC and we will be abaove you soon in league status.

Just get used to the fact you are a small club and always will be.


I wouldn't want Matt Ritchie! He looks ok in league two but we're building a squad for the championship and I don't think he'd cut it! We should knock this one on the head and do all we can to keep Pugh! It's a prolific striker we need... Anyone remember when Reading were a small club? Money changes things... Look at us in 3 years time..... Up the cherries


If Bournemouth are now a club with money why is it you keep trying to sign players on the cheap and with instalments. the only good thing about Bournemouth are the babes on the beach in the summer


Thats why 7 championship and premier league teams were watching him on saturday so Bournemouth bigger than them you are in cuckoo land. You wont make the championship L1 is your maximum you will ever achieve.


Swindon Fans, just because you beat Wigan doesn't mean you are a 'revolution'! Matt Ritchie will come if we still want him. Then your team will be even worse! :)(5)(2)Keep dreaming bournemouth fans for a start you wont offer what we want plus he says he wants to stay with Paolo and why would he take a step backwards, ok we may be L2 at the moment but only because of the person manager we had last season. we have got a team better than most L1 teams including the mighty bournemouth with their little crowds.

Not only have we beat Wigan we have also beaten Huddersfield and Bristol City this season. go back to your deck chair and rustle up some more supporters.

Latest news out of Celtic Park is that Gry Hooper is interested in a move to Southampton. He has said that he is willing to take the gamble on saints getting promoted, as playing his football in the EPL gives him a much better chance of breaking into the national side than playing in scotland. However ... Neil Lennon is going to be parting with his hitman easily and will only except a 'knockout' offer. Cortese is a shrewed businessman and this may be a stubbling block for Southampton(11)(22)I believe that at one point the hooper transfer could have happened. However Cortese likes to buy players without the media attention so now the story has leaked (thank you neil lennon), cortese and adkins will look elsewhere

It is dead in the waterWe will get them both in janI really dont no where u get these story mcinnes himself has said there have been no bids yet and why would he join norwich when fulham newcastle and west brom are looking at himQuit putting stupid rumours on this site, Maynard is not Lambert's type of player, understand he has an attitude problem so unlikely he would go for him.

To my understanding Sfc will make up to 5 signings. Lee undisclosed, iago falque (daily mail) loan from spurs young spaniard, they want one big signing (striker) hopefully Gary hooper Celtic, James Wilson young versatile defender Bristol city (1-2 mill) and possibly goalkeeper or another late loan from prem) All this other nonsense about Owen, Defoe, jelavic, is rubbish not saints fans.coyr!!!(13)(12)Saints will not sign 5 players in this window, Nigel is a clever man and realises that the balance of the squad is key and will only sign 3 players. He won't sign a goalkeeper, a defender is speculation but possible depending on how he sees seabourne and Martin coming through also jaidi will retire end of this season. We should see lee join that's a given but I also expect some form of a right midfielder coming in and possibly a 2nd main striker to partner Ricky as much as the hooper deal sounds good. I honestly don't see it happening it's too public and I really dont see Celtic selling him nor do I see cortese bidding over 6 million but then again we did bid 5.5 for jay rod didn't we? So with that in mind we should get lee, possibly a 2nd striker and a right midfielder/winger a defender is a big maybe in my opinion and a goalkeeper won't happen we have two good goalkeepers already one bad game by bialowski and people want him gone? He was solid against CoventryIsnt falque only on loan at spurs!? so this is rubbish?Iago falque is on loan to tottenham from juventus so there is no chance of that.Lies seeings though falque is on loan at spurs? :sSpurs want to get permission to send him out for a while, (3rd party loan) so spurs can get a better look at him to possibly sign him

He will stay at Norwich so get your head out of the cloudsUtter garbageHearts are trying to move on players.
Nobody will be signed by the club.I can confirm these rumours except the fee that Dunfermline are willing to pay for Zaliukas is closer to £5m


11 Jan 2012 09:28:20
why do people have a go at norwich because we dont spend that much and dont make big money signings. After who QPR signed i dont want any big names, we've proved money wont buy promotion from the championship, and it dosen't buy you premier league status. All it takes is a good manager who can get the most out of our players. We dont need to spend 9-12 mill on well known player, im happy buying from the lower leagues and getting the best out of them, holts scored more than players like bent, agbonlahor, suarez, gervinho and zamora. Im not saying hes better than them in long run before people start saying all us norwich fans think hes the best in england. Im just saying we dont need expensive players to score goals.(8)(5)I'm a West Ham fan and totally neutral to the prem and I dont think anyone can say anything negative about Norwich. What they have done is incredible and they deserve the highest respect from everyone in football for what they're achieving. What a great manager and good team. Good luck to them.

Thats something even Crawley wouldn't have done. At the end of the day, he's a non-league player; although undoubtedly a talented one, and shoul dmake the step up, but at that price its just too great a risk for too much expenditure. NOT worth it.

The Lions have scouted the former Crystal Palace wideman, 24, who has scored nine goals for the Shrimpers this season.

Millwall watched Hall at AFC Wimbledon at the end of December and he scored and dazzled in a 4-1 victory for the Shrimpers.

Hall is NOT for sale. Millwall cant afford him either.

Seems to be some truth in the rumours about Celtic's Gary Hooper going to Southampton !
But Saints fans will be shocked to hear that the deal includes Rickie Lambert going the other way in a cash plus player deal .(8)(15)They will not get rid of Lambert who ever wrote this is a lier or unreliable source has told themWon't happen. We need a striker because we a thin atm, getting rid of our best striker, and arguably one of the best strikers in the football league doesnt make sense. Why up root the way our team plays (around him), and get rid of a fan favourite. Im sorry, but i dont believe this, and if its true, then its a deal thats not worth it and is bad business.


11 Jan 2012 07:30:14
The Chris Samba thing to QPR is looking more and more positive due to him realising Spurs ability to buy people and not really play them, just as an example Pinaar, Bassong, Dos Santos, Kranjcar and Corluka. Still would be amazed if he does come to Loftus Road but here is hoping(7)(10)Spurs ability to buy people and not play them... are you actually joking?? all of those players have played first team football for long periods of time except Pinaar and Dos Santos - Pinaar because of injuries, and dos santos because he has Bale, Lennon, VDV in front of him. Chris Samba knows that if he goes to spurs then he will play Champ[ions league football and not be fighting mid table with wannabee big teams!

24-year old United States international Robbie Rogers has agreed a deal to join Leeds United, subject to the former Columbus Crew star receiving a work permit.

Rogers was in attendance at the Emirates last night to see The Whites narrowly beaten by Arsenal which further fuelled speculation he was about to join Leeds United.

In his five years with Columbus Crew, Rogers has made 128 appearances scoring 17 times. He was part of the 2008 MLS Cup winning team which in the same year also won the Supporters Cup Ė a trophy they successfully defended in 2009.

In the double winning season of 2008, Rogers was named in the MLS Best XI and in 2011 he was voted Columbus Crew's hardest working player.

A successful 2008 saw Rogers gain international recognition with a call up to the United States side for the Beijing Olympics. Robbie has since won 18 caps for the USA, scoring twice.

It's worth noting that Rogers may find it difficult to obtain a UK work permit. He doesn't meet the criteria for guaranteed eligibility so Leeds United will have to argue his case. I presume, since he's been offered a contract based on the outcome, that the club are pretty confident.(11)(3)

heya just a thought bradley wright phillips is well on form at the moment i think he would do great for us at norwich and great strike partner for vaughn (plz return soon) of jackson its just a thought what du you all think btw its pathetic how ipswich fans have to trash our rumours page just because there is probably nothing to talk about on theirs!

any way plz comment on what you think about bradley wright phillips(1)(5)Don't think he is good enough for Norwich to be honest but still a good player having a good season in league 1Likewise,not good enough for the top flight,should stay at Charlton or move up to Colchester but no further!


11 Jan 2012 03:02:47
if the premier league clubs never took every one of rangers goo players then maybe we' be a bit more successful(1)(10)You need to sell your best players to cover your debts!Its not just the premiership clubs but also Championship and league 1 clubs look at the good players at rangers and other SPL teams. that is because most use SPL as a shop window to play in england.If Rangers didnt sell all their good players you mean...Maybe if you had any money...If Rangers didnt sell all their good players you mean...Maybe if you had any money...Two points

1- you are a bankrupt club with no future. The tax man is coming to finish you off and you are obliged to sell any discernible assets.

2- you have no talented Players. Jellyfish is overrated, DAvis will leave at the first oPportunity and mcgregor is shaky at bestWhy moan? Rangers do the same thing to other SPL teams............. Rangers and Celtic buy all the good Scottish players, no wonder they have no competitionI totally agree with last post, as soon as hearts,aberdeen,dundee utd etc get close to the big two,you buy all their decent players,which has created such a poor uncompetitive league.maybe a way of fixing this is to ban any transfers between spl clubs.then maybe more than two teams would challenge for the league.

I heard it from the tooth fairy of the wicked witch of the west, who had heard it from Dorothy whilst walking along the yellow brick road that that total waste of space the tin man had said that Jordan Rhodes will be signing for liverpool, via man utd, barcelona, inter, bayern and F.C. Halifax for £12.50p rising to £27m after the candy man repeats his name three times whilst standing on his wooden leg. Huddersfield Town are for life, the rest are only for Christmas. Get a life(22)(13)F.C halifax may not be in the running for Jordan Rhodes (long live the shay) . £1m, £5m, £10m or above and lets face it, who really cares about all these pretenders who think they are worthy of our prolific goalscorer. get a lifeIts past christmas..

From inside the board room

Sp eaking to Dave Allen he has confirmed the only reason Sheirdan is in a job is that they cant afford to sack him with a four year cotact
He has lost all confidence in him and does not speak to him about football matters

Chesterfield will be making no signings this january and expect to see four players going out on loan


Possible if the four go two loan signings at best just to keep the fans paying money into the club.

His 5 year plan for championship football has long gone and he now sees Chesterfield as a top half at best division two club, he intends to sel his share once saltergate has been sold(6)(4)This is the most ridiculous post i have ever read....and there are some ridiculous posts on this websiteI believe this - Allen's an old guy now (70 plus?) so will want to sell up soon.

He's done a good job, along with Barry Hubbard, so can see CFC being sold soon.

Non starter.It would be the second, we've already had one turned down.Nonsense - why such a specific time? However, I'd love it if we got him!And we defo have the cash lol, he is tight fisted tho!You wont get him no chanceNo bid has been placed I'll think your find ...just countless calls to Celtic enquiring.
The FIRST bid will be around 5 pm today and be 5.5 m

And it is a fact that stoke nearly signed Cahill in August only for arsenal to snap up arteta and scuppered the deal as u needed the money.(12)(5)100% true {Ed025's Note - speculation my friend..we are desperate for money...but for any of our players to want to move to stoke, sounds sillly. why would they want to leave a club with our history and tradition, and fantastic play hump ball..??Have u got 20mill for baines,and at least 8mill for cahill,have a laugh mateYes we have if they were worth it.Actuly stoke have got 20m and even more if they want it bet365 money all the way ..but pulis wont pay over the odds for a player and is a shrude wheeler n dealer20 mill would not buy you Bainess, Cahill for 8 mill yes.

The Barnsley manager will become the new manager at Bolton before the end of the month.
Fergul.(6)(22)Considering you don't even know the Barnsley managers name we should question not only your intelligence but your clear lack of football knowledge showing this rumour to be nothing but a rumour because you would have thought Coyle would have had the sack by now of the wanted a change in managerThe Barnsley manager is Bolton born Keith HillRightly or wrongly Bolton have said they won't sack Coyle. Personally I think he should have been shown the door six weeks ago but whilst you get a chairman who buries his head in the sand and says it's all part of a long term plan and fans (at Macclesfield) chanting his name in blind adoration I think you can safely say he's here for the foreseeable. Barnsley fans hold no fear, Keith Hill is staying at Oakwell.Keith hill would not give up on a good job at barnsley to take over at bolton. this is due to him been faithfull to the reds. however if he does go can we please please sign neil warnock.

Leeds United have beaten Blackburn Rovers to the signing of USA winger Robbie Rogers. The former Columbus Crew man met with his new team mates at the Emirates last night and will sign subject to getting a work permit.(11)(14)I really don't know about this..Apparently he's part Greek and under EU laws would not need a working visaThe trials at Thorpe Arch, more often than not, tend to sort the wheat from the chaff. Grayson has used this well to his advantage, but its about the only good thing he has done in the transfer window, besides signing Gradel and Lonergan. Still, I look forward to watching Rogers. Looks like a hard-worker, so the fans will take to him.

TO set the record straight , having looked through all the rubbish that's been put on here about Jordan Rhodes I will put the record straight , I live 200 yards from Dean Hoyle and speak to him everyday. He has told me that Jordan is not for sale , and won't be until the summer , the only way he said that he would leave now is if there was a bid of around 8 million pounds for him , and in deans words not mine , they wouldn't be able to ignore it and he would leave , both of them are in agreement on this and Rhodes himself said that he wants to get promotionwith Huddersfield to the championship and then try out a career in the premiership , will all the west ham fans that think there a big club and can tempt him to go to the championship wake up and realise that he doesn't want championship football , he will only go to a premiership club , can we just let the kid enjoy his football and all the people who think they know what's going on stop making stuff up .(11)(22)Yea as if he would tell that to someone in the street and he would be too busy for you to see him every day even if you lived in the same house.L1 player and will command a L1 transfer fee so get real.Nice one pal, that will put the cat amongst the pigeons, not that anyone will believe a word of it, NORWICH fans will still say JORD gion to them cos we've got a "GOOD RELATIONSHIP" with them. HA HAI am not a west ham fan, But to say they are not a big club you do not know much about football. West Hams average crowd is just under 30,000. And thats in the championship! The 8th highest average including the premiership. Maybe you think that if you are not top four in the premiership that does not make you a big club !! By the way, i am a Cheltenham town fan. A very small club with heart. I just like to talk about football without stupid remarks like that one.I thought Jackanory finished years ago but no, it's alive and well and living on this site... get over yourself princess, we don't believe you. Rhodes will be off to a big club just as soon as your chairman thinks he's pushed the money as high as he can.I'm a hammers fan, and it looks like we will sign rhodes, for about 4+ mil, which is steep, he looks pretty good, but 8 mil, no way, i'm not that fussed if we dont get him, he might go on to be a premiership player, but thats by no way a certainty, dont think mr huddesfield realises how big the gulf is.
oh, and surely if hudd. spent the 4 mil they got for him, they would be twice the team by feb!?Fair comment mate but I don't think West Ham fans, I'm one of them, have delusions of grandeur on the big club front and most of the cp spouted will be coming from other sources. Good luck on your promotion push.I totally agree with the 1st post. I was at Sheffield wed and spoke to him at half time. Deano said the same thing. These wanna be premier league fans probably can't understand what it's like to have a chairman that both lives in the uk and speaks English! Oh, and he's not asset stripping the club either. Dean is a fan who is happy to chat with other fans. He just happens to be the boss too.

Hi Ed... Any news on hooper, jutkiewicz, Maynard or vela joining southampton? {Ed001's Note - no, possible, possible and also possible, though Vela surprises me personally. Maynard has a choice of a few Championship teams, and Bolton are interested too. But I would think Southampton have a very good chance.}(6)(12)A slim to no chance yeahWhere did the vela thing come from? Has it been reported in the foreign press or something or is it some kind of twitter rumour?Maynard going nowhere near to Southampton as he wants to play in the premiership and on recent form Southampton will blow it and still be a championship side next season.The ed keeps going on about how there is no chance of hooper joining southampton. does he not know about southamptons wealth or adkins part in hoopers rise to fame? {Ed003's Note - 001 is clearly saying it how it is regarding Hooper and knows very well hooper's background, and your vast amounts of money which is not much good when the football league also has committed itself to the fair play rules }Why does edo1 talk about Vela being possible? A. He's on loan at sociedad for the season and B. nowhere legit is talking about this at all. {Ed001's Note - deals can still be done even though a player is out on loan. The reason it is possible is because he is supposedly keen to prove himself in England. I did say I was surprised, because my personal belief is that it is highly unlikely, but it does seem he is a possible out from Arsenal. I am also told Southampton have had a look at him playing for Sociedad. I would personally think it is only going to happen if Southampton get promotion, but I was told not to rule it out and that I might be surprised. Stranger things have happened I suppose.}Can't really see Maynard going to Bolton,if he has a choice of Saints or Bolton you'd have to think he'd choose saints as it appears as though they'll be swapping divisions.Maynards not going to Bolton or Southampton - Its Swansea or WolvesWhat championship teams


10 Jan 2012 19:28:27
There have been some rumors about possible moves from Ozil or Kaka to LIVERPOOL. I know it sounds very far fetched but Mourinho told Ozil that he has to be better if he wants to stay in the team, causing LFC to monitor the situation. I read about the Kaka rumor on another website and, as far fetched as it sounds, i believe that there actually is a possibility. He rarely gets a starting position in the Real squad and i can imagine him maybe wanting to play in the UK. A 30million pound offer would be the starting price though so i am not sure if he is really worth it anymore.
Other Liverpool interests include:
Alonso (!!)
Torres (!!)
Eden Hazard (although Man City will probably out bid us for about 50 million or something stupid)(8)(33)Haha deluded, only kalou is possible from that list. no champions league means liverpool wont be able to sign quality players, FACT! it will be like this from no on, sorry liverpool fans, your just not enough of an attraction any more.Slight dig at Man City there! It's not our fault we are a more attractive club than Liverpool. You did pay 35 mill for Carroll so it's not like you can't compete financially!

Hi ed. People say norwich don't splash the cash and we won't make big money signings, well by the looks of the signings we have made have worked but do you have any news on the following as i'd love to see some of themin a Norwich shirt! - Snodgrass, Rhodes, Mcgugan, Phillips, Gunter, Maynard, Rodriguez and any others? OH and that young german that you said about hopefully gotze! Cheers! {Ed001's Note - nothing new on the rest, but the German lad is from his former club, I have found that much out. Sorry I haven't got a name yet, and thinking about it I should have realised it would be from them!}(1)(16)

I heard Matt Tubbs coming to bristol City replacement for nicky maynard(13)(5)AFC Bournemouth have had 2 bids rejected for Tubbs, and the "ball is in their court" apparently. Big shame about Sheringham, was starting to look like a very good acquisition. Personally, I'd prefer to see Cody MacDonalds ahead of Tubbs but who knowsIs the ball in their DEAN COURT,sorry couldn't help it,bad joke

Sheffield Wednesday have signed defender Miguel Llera on an 18-month contract after he and Bojan Djordjic were released by Blackpool.(13)(5)

Celtic have belived to have layed a 6 million pound price tag on gary hooper southampton are expected to offer this after there 5-6 million pound bid for jay rodriguez on transfer deadline day in august - also albert adomah is in talks with southampton after bristol city now feel they will keep main star nicky maynard(15)(33)Please stop with these rumours, Hooper loves life in glasgow and has stated this only weeks ago, he has a few years on his contract and is chasing a domestic treble, celtic are sound financially, so why would he want to leave? and why would celtic be touting him, when hes 1 of only 3 fit strikers that celtic have? think before you post!!All the talk of Hooper to the Saints is well wide of mark. Hooper has a new deal in the offing but has been promised an EPL move if Celtic don't qualify for the Champions League. Bidding starts at £8milliNo chance would hooper leave in jan maybe summer and to premier leauge side not sothampton dream onHooper knows Nigel Adkins well and wants to play in the English Premiership with The Saints. Not really much of a challenge for him playing mickey mouse football in Scotland !Dident realise ..... were in the prem? Don't count your chickens before they hatch. Your all gonna be very dissapointed come the end of the season. Arrogance is so sweet when it backfires.Hooper wouldnt pass up european competition and domestic trophies to get maybe promoted and relegated in the space of a few seasons, however a crazy bid of £10m+ would be welcomed for the SPLs best striker and he would be ushered out the door!Who the heck are this southampton that we keep hearing about getting hooper?

what have they done? what league do they play in? do they get european football? do they get 60,000 fans at home games? do they even exist, because i've never heard anyone important talk about them or seen them play in big games?

bewilderingSouthampton= top of the championship at present, the largest club with the biggest fan base in the south. Now I don't know if they will sign Hooper or not, but what I do know is that you obviously feel so threatened by them buying your star striker that you feel the need to query their very existence. Now if you are indeed such a big club, surely you don't need to be worried about Harper coming to such an insignificant club as Southampton. Now that's what I call bewildering..... {Ed003's Note - Harper ?? the goalkeeper ?? }Well said mate. Harper? as well, yeah why not, can always do with an extra ball boyWho the heck are this southampton that we keep hearing about getting hooper?

what have they done? what league do they play in? do they get european football? do they get 60,000 fans at home games? do they even exist, because i've never heard anyone important talk about them or seen them play in big games?

I think they won the FA Cup once. Massive Club with a Massive Trophy cabinet with nothing in it lolForget J-Rod,he's already turned you down why would he change his mind,born and bred claretBefore Celtic get all high and mighty. Let me give you a few names you could only dreamt off having played for you. Shearer, Keegan, Ball, Bale, Flowers, Shilton, Channon, Wilcott get it now. You are just a big fish in a small puddleLMAO, celtic fans are jokes, ITS THE SPL! It's barely even a league. You get the attendances because your all to poor to come watch EPL games, no one watches on sky or espn. So dont get all high and mighty. No one cares about SPL, and no one cares if it stopped existing.Only thing that last post proves is Southampton = feeder club fact!


10 Jan 2012 18:54:17
West Brom are after Fc Porto winger Christain Rodriguez. The Baggies are believed to have had a very watchful eye on the winger . The club is only prepared to offer 2.5-3 million for the winger who has only played 60 games at his time at porto. Very possible this will happen as he said that he would like a move to the Premier Leguage.(14)(14)Wba will need at least 10million for him porto wont let him go on the cheap


10 Jan 2012 18:52:57
Watford sign Nyron Nosworthy on an 18 month contract from Sunderland for an undisclosed fee.(14)(4)It 2.5 years2 1/2 year contract actuallyThanks nyron from all at safc-youll do great at your new club-good luck watfordFeel for Watford. Hopelessly out of his depth at league levelYou obviously haven't seen him play for the last few months. Brilliant signing for a club with small resources like Watford.


10 Jan 2012 19:10:03
Fleetwood Town have confirmed that a bid from Blackpool for striker Jamie Vardy has been knocked back. It is believed that the offer was in the region of £750,000.(14)(15)


10 Jan 2012 19:09:28
rangers and leeds to do a swap deal for australian international matt mackay and ex rangers striker ross mccormack..apparantly a dead cert.(5)(42)MacKay can't get in the Rangers team, and Rangers are desperately short of players at present. Why would Leeds let McCormack, their top scorer go, to be replaced by a midfield dud.Yeah, of course it's a dead cert, I'm sure it makes perfect sense for Leeds to ship Ross McCormack, joint Championship top scorer, out and bring in a MIDFIELDER who can't get into an already threadbare rangers team. Maybe Rangers could sweeten the deal, throw in Ortiz and Bedoya? That's the kind of business sense Leeds employed 10 years ago and look how where it landed them. Don't think they're quite so thick as to go for this "dead cert"Only way this can happen is if we (Leeds ) have another striker lined up and rumours may suggest Beckford returning (please no !) big time charlie who thinks he,s better than his team mates


10 Jan 2012 19:08:56
I was laughed at when I said saints should sign hooper but now it seems we're interested, however I doubt he'll leave celtic till the summer were hopefully he'll be reunited with adkins at saints. If we're in the prem.(12)(21)Why would he go to Saints when he can get Champions League football next season with Celtic.Because Celtic don't get proper champions league football and the English leagues are a higher levelTrue but only for one game so is that worth playing in a mickey mouse league forBecause he may have champions league football with Celtic but celtic will not reach the group stages. Plus the Scottish league is one of the worst around.As the original post said, if Southampton are in the prem. I dont think he would go to Southampton, but if a mid table premiership club such as Norwich, fulham, west brom etc came in for him i think his head would turn. At the end of the day the scottish league isnt competitive, if he wins the domestic treble there's nothing left to achieve (lets face it celtic wont do anything in Europe as usual).Lol mid table...ok, they are now, but your seriously assuming norwich wont be scrapping away a relegation fight? He would rather go and do that?Southampton if promoted wont win anything at all in the EPL and deinately not a sniff of even 1 european game, so its a no brainer for the lad, stay and win medals and leagues and the crazy money of the EPL is sure to come!He'd go to the saints,because celtic wont get into the next round of champs league,and get knocked out of the europa.Players with ambition don't give a toss about 'competitive''s about medals and money, and he'll get both at celtic, not some fly-by-night relegation battlers like all of the teams mentioned above

oh, and the epl aint competitive either.....always seems to be a 2 horse race hmmmmmmmmmHe'd go to the saints,because celtic wont get into the next round of champs league,and get knocked out of the europa.

and yet he wouldnt even get either if he went to saints! pash team won nothing!I have nothing agianst Southampton but honestly your fans are so pig-headed.... You have achieved nothing yet, won nothing - even if you do will need to prove that you can stay up, from a neutral perspective I hope you fail, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that has come to that conclusion from some comment made by southampton fans on this site, your fans think your Man U when you are probably on a par with Motherwell, Mickey Mouse league?? Elmer Fud fans! lolI have nothing agianst Southampton but honestly your fans are so pig-headed.... You have achieved nothing yet, won nothing - even if you do will need to prove that you can stay up, from a neutral perspective I hope you fail, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that has come to that conclusion from some comment made by southampton fans on this site, your fans think your Man U when you are probably on a par with Motherwell, Mickey Mouse league??

10 Jan 2012 18:37:08
i have also heard whispers of ki going to villa with celtic recieving cuellar plus cash. Mcleish is a big fan of ki but cant afford him with upfront cash, lennon would welcome a solid centre half plus the bonus of some cash to buy a striker..doubt diawara will be within range tho.(5)(22)Absolute and complete utter tosh, Ki will be starting most games from now to the end of the season with Kayal being injured, so why would we sell him? he loves life in Glasgow and has years on his contract, why are people continually selling celtic players in this window, when A they dont need to sell and B they are chasing a domestic treble!!Because Celtic have the quality of Emile Heskey.
They are championship standard, Ki will be in EPL at some point soon!Championship teams dont have European competition, not a good reply to original post, Ki has the ability to play in the EPL no doubt, but he will leave when it suits celtic and the bidding will be around the £10m mark. The SPL cant be as bad as people think if the English teams want our players!Aye and Villa have the quality of alan hutton lolol mug!Aye and Villa have the quality of alan hutton lolol mug!

The "marquee signing" that Milton Keynes dons boss Robinson hinted at will be announced as Neil Mellor, within the next 48 hours. Mellor knows both Potter and Robinson well from his Liverpool and Wednesday days and see promotion chasing MK will offer an him a wanted escape from Preston.(3)(17)Are u for real he is out till end of the seasonHaha your better sighning ledley king he's less injury prone at the min


10 Jan 2012 18:26:28
Lots of rubbish being spouted about Celtic's Ki, fact is Celtic would have considered bids in region of £10million but have ruled it out due to kayals injury. £8million bid turned down from Russia and Liverpool have been asked to be kept informed. Real news- Jelavic and Davis desperately trying to be sold which has but buyers off until last minute to get last minute bargains. This means Rangers wil hav to sell at least 1 more with Edu the most likely. Source- agent(19)(20)What A Load Of Absolute Bullst. What colour is the sky on your planet. I mean as well as Green.

10 Jan 2012 18:24:08
Swindon have received a favourable response from the Gills in their bid to sign Luke Rooney, Rooney has stopped short of handing in a transfer request but has refused a new contract and wants to talk to swindon, Town have been asked to up their offer but have so far refused, a player in exchange could be on the cards and it looks like Kerouche Swindons top scorer has been offered to make the deal happen.(8)(2)Kerrouche is a very god player and dont think we should be letting him go to a promotion rival he will score alot of goalsI agree but PDC has obviously had another fall out which means he will leave, personally I would rather Kerouche stay than get rooney, but with another striker being brought in its likely he will go, and what the F does he see in Magera, abloke who cant run, cant jump and hardly chases a ball..

Southampton in talks with Arsenal over a loan move for young centre back Kyle Bartley.(10)(14)Is'nt he at rangers or did his loan expire?He,s at rangers on loan till end of the seasonWhy would we loan Arsenal's youth players when ours are better then there's, if we wanted youth players then we would give our own a chance.Kyle Bartley is on loan at rangers so this is aload of rubbishHis loan spell with Ranrs runs out at the end of this month. May take opportunity to jump ship before the HMRC knock at the doorHe is actually at rangers until the end of the season.

Newcastle are interested in signing Paul McShane from hull city for £1.5 mill(5)(30)Thought he was available on a freeDont think Mike Ashley will spend that type of cashAs a Hull City fan I highly doubt this is true. McShane is a League 1 defender at best. Hull City will be happy for a third of that easy. No way a premiership Full back. However if this is true, say yes Mr Pearson!Hull city fan Pearson is no longer ur manger and sunderland resign himAdam pearson the chairman you tool not nigel and I would be happy to see him leave for free, he is a liability don't think he has played a game without getting carded.

10 Jan 2012 18:10:52
heard celtic might nip in and take sandaza. could be the straw that breaks the rangers fans backs and lennon would love that. only 300 grand and would make mccoist sick.(8)(9)If Rangers were that interested they would have already made a bid ...Celtic are not going to buy anyone from scotland as they have at least 2 or 3 on trial a week that are just as good if not betterDon't think Mcoist will bat an eyelid. I don't think he is good enough for rangers anyway. He will be purely a bench warmer at celtic...Have to agree with above poster, think he would do a job for rangers thou ecspecially with Laffety out for full season.... spanish lad would be better buy tho if gers can stump up cash


10 Jan 2012 18:07:01
Clyne to Man Utd

I've just been told by an estate agent friend in Prestbury that Nathaniel Clyne has been shown around a few rental properties in the area.
Clyne has been watched by United ever since Crystal Palace's shock Carling Cup quarter final win, and with him out of contract in the summer, Palace may be tempted to cash in now before the transfer window ends rather than lose him for nothing.

You heard it here first!(9)(20)


10 Jan 2012 18:06:13
heard a cracker of a rumour, kenny miller going back to celtic! Doubt it will happen but you never know with miller!(5)(24)Why would kenny miller go back to the spl poor league with poor teams also hes doing well with cardiffHe wouldnt get into the team at the minuteWhy would he take a backward stepThat would be like going from the Championship to league 1?? Why would he do that?? Old firm games ...blah blah blah , you must get bored with only playing competitive matches against 1 team??

Wolves Ins and Outs. These are all being considered by the Wolves board on the request of MM. I have a mate working in the offices at the mighty Molinuex.


Vokes - Permanent
Kightley - Loan
Keogh - Permanent
SEB - Loan or Permanent
Griffiths - Loan
Guedioura - Permanent


Jones - Stoke £5m
Maynard - BC £1.75m
Onoura - City £2.75m
Chamakh - Arsenal £4.5m
Squillaci - Arsenal £1.5m

Obviously these wont all happen. But all of Wolves business this windoew will come from the above names. Guarenteed.(13)(30)Agree with the Vokes one, your Kightly rumour is wrong, agree with Keogh, agree with Ebanks-Blake, they will try to sell Griffiths and agree with Guerdiora. Jones is a big rumour I agree, as well with Maynard and Onouha but Chamakh and Squillaci I can't see them touching with a sh1tty stick, both individuals are demotivated and overpaid so not MMc's type of players at all.Steve morgan spending 13 million i need to lie down fJones £5million ? chamakh £4.5million? I think
jones is gonna cost a bit more than that if you think that chamakh is worth that much,he could n,t hit a cows arse with banjo! you,d be better off having that big german/austrian bloke back mairhoffer or something is name was?Chamakh - Arsenal £4.5m & Squillaci - Arsenal £1.5m , dream on! FFS & I'm a Wolves fan.'All of wolves business will come from the above names' apart from frimpong and jonssonUs spending 13 mill look at that pig flyingI want what he's on micks already said he's willing to give vokes another chance n chamakh n squillaci lol dream landCHAMAKH? SQUILLACI? you wont even be lucky enough to land Maynard, he would have no intrest in going to your team as he wants to go prem and stay there , you will have about £2mill to spend not £13mill hahaYou dingles live in dream land, who would want to go to a club that will be in the champioship next year


10 Jan 2012 17:25:47
Portsmouth looking to lodge a last ditch bid for Billy Sharp in a player plus cash deal. Player most likely is Kitson.(2)(18)Umm with what money ? No owner , players not getting paid this month and a point deduction on the way .. tut tutI'm a Pompey fan and even i think this has no legs.Still thinking there going to splash the cash when they could fold in a matter of weeks..The most delutional fans in the league...The recent take over talk from AA has gone very quite and im hearing the deal with the consortium is off which is now putting the club in real danger....Your havin a laughhhhhhhhh?pompey with moneyAll of you are wrong! Pompey are on the verge of a big takeover. So 1 players will be paid and 2 Greg halfords good mates with sharpe so I wouldent completely rule it out. Focus on your own clubNever gonna happen billy's to good for youA big takeover ha ha ha!! What have you got to offer anyone....You have a terrible stadium,Sit fan base,No training ground,no academy,debts up to your eye balls,cva,and maybe a points deduction..Why would they buy you when they could buy many other clubs that are for sale and cant find buyers and have the investructure in place..Everton,Palace,Wigan,,Newcastle just to name a few....You will only ever attract chancers with no money, oh my god, thats exactly what you already have done the last 4 times and you mugs still believe the knight in shining armour will come along...Firstly, pompey arent on the verge of a big takeover, its just talk to try make interested parties speed up. I know this as i have several friends that havent been paid, one expecting to lose his job by the end of february in the youth set up. Secondly, why would he leave to go to portsmouth, a middle championship team on its day, when teams much bigger are sniffing about? Not forgetting the financial impossibility about it..


10 Jan 2012 17:23:53
barnsley are in talks with league one side sheffield united over a possiblemove for inform striker ched evans(16)(19)I have heard this as well with danny haynes as a make weight in the dealI am sure that Ched evans would love to be associated with such a masssive club as BarnsleyWe can't all be as big as the massive Sheffield clubsMassive clubs in the short trouser league that is league 1Dream on dingles...

Hibernian are hopefull of completing transfers of Caddis and Brennan. Also Derek Riordan is training with SPL opponents Kilmarnock.(8)(4)


10 Jan 2012 17:08:22
Norwich could sign either in jan or summer:


Mcgugan and Gunter - forest - will need to strengthen full backs gunter can play both. Also mcgugan will be the perfect player to play alongside hoolahan
Snodgrass - leeds - lambert seems to be very keen and johnson may persuade him
Rhodes - hudds - good relationship with hudds
Maynard - bristol city - could be a possibility as a cut price
Rodriguez - burnley - lambert hungry 4 him as he is young and good player like rhodes + maynard( norwich will not sign all 3! 1 or 2 maybe.)


C Martin - palace - probably summer as they have extended loan
wilbraham - not needed
o johnson has been released
de laet - may return after his back injury is keeping him out

Untrue rumors:
messi - wes hoolahan is better
pilks to liverpool or spurs - utter b&^%£"$
holt to leicester - he is a norwich legend and captain(11)(26)You wont get none of them at the end of the season ,not when you,re back in the fizzy pop league,bye bye birdy..hahaNo way would rhodes go to norwich ! a lot bigger clubs are interested^Yeah bigger clubs that'd leave him on the bench all careerSounds like someone is jealous of Norwich, presumably a tractor boy? who with his wishful thinking will send Norwich back to championship, I am confident that Lambert and co will retain Norwich in premier league this season, the biggest challenge will be next season.Why would rhodes want to go to a big club and sit on the bench? waste of money for big clubs i think he should go to a club like norwich on the up. why not? Ed? {Ed003's Note - The club say he's not for sale }Oh im sorry 1p5wich fan is it cos we are prem and u r league 1 well u cant help jelousy!How exactly will Johnson persuade Snodgrass? I heard the rest of the squad weren't impressed with his attitude, when he rejected two improved contracts. While complaining that he wasnt earning 'Beckford-money,' he disillusioned himself to an extent with the rest of the midfield, except Kilkenny, who is just terrible.
wallyYou wont get SnodgrassFrom a HUDDS fan, wats wi the "gud relationship" carp, LEE CLARK was wi u(wow) & u bought PILKS, u paid bout 3mil, gud BUISNESS for both clubs thats all. As for RHODES, join the long queue & stump up the cash(thats if he decides he wants to leave) cos we dont need anybodys money. AG10 Jan 2012 20:58:29
You seem pretty certain that we're going down mate. Probably a soon to be league one fan. Face facts, we have a real chance of staying up come the end of the season, at the halfway point we sit in 9th, and there are some teams playing pretty poorly at the minute.Forgot captains and legends cant be sold....ah wait...legends...henry...left arsenal? :O IT IS POSSIBLE?!?!Don't be so stupid, Johnson might persuade him, its not school boy stRhodes wont be going anywhere this transfer window unless a massively inflated bid is made. Getting promoted to the Championship is worth more than anything any club will be willing to pay for Rhodes. Norwich (Lambert) wont pay over the odds for any player so lets put this one to bed.

Cardiff City's Peter Whittingham has been revealed as a target for Brighton and Hove Albion. Sources close to Albion manager Gus Poyet, have suggested a £400k bid has been tabled for the ex-Villa playmaker.(5)(28)West ham had a offer of £3,000,000 rejected. Anyway Cardiff won't sell.Is that the same WITTINGHAM thats reportedly worth 4+mil, if so, gud luk wi that 400k bid. shud be in the bag mate. lolRumour is West Bromwich Albion have bid
£4 million quid for Whittingham,could be that you,ve got the wrong Albion ?I think you mean a £4,000,000 bid has been posted and by West Bromwich Albion, I quite like Brighton but they no chance of signing Whittingham.I think this supposed to be ironic after the pathetic 400k Cardiff offered for Craig Noone!Saints put in a bid for 3.5 million that was rejected why do u think he would go 2 brighton anyway.This person is being ironic but noone is not even half the player whitts is so no more than a million for noone when whitts is worth easily over the 3 million west ham bid for him400K you are having a laugh, coming from a Leeds fan he is worth much more!Oh dear , Brighton have been on the 'bitter' again!!!400k! are you joking mate

Bristol city on verge of clinching a deal for midfield maestro Hayden Mullins,mcinnes looking or a playmaker to spray the ball around from the middle of the park,and the Pompey general fits the bill nicely!(4)(13)Need more than Mullins (are you rovers in disguise) super CrawleySpray the ball around? He can only play it 5 yards backwards and hangs around on his own 18 yard line do 90 mins. Still would be an improvement on what we got though.To be fair crawley played well and we couldnt handle there long balls. not use to playing long ball teams in the championship.Hayden Mullins a playmaker, really, I've heard him called a few things and playmaker certainly isn't one of them.

BobbybuffonJust demisting the car windscreen before driving him up to Bristol. I'll even chuck in's BOGOF!!Looking forward to seeing him in a city shirt,kept mascherano out the west ham side,the complete midfielder.You are going to be dissapointed, we loved Mullins at West Ham but he's a destroyer not a playmaker

looks like matt ritchie is off :/ bournemouth are quite rich now and can offer better football
please dont hate, from a swindon fan(14)(9)Rubbish - Bournemouth are a small club and its a move back not up.Finally a swindon fan with a bit of sense!I'd not want Ritchie for more than 500k. Not a question of being rich, we're only spending monies brought in from our sales. But good to have an invester...Look players dont want to go to Bournemouth you are too small and today you have bid for Tubbs and that has been rekected there is no way you will get Ritchie for 500k seems you bid upto 600k in November for him plus he has stated he wants to stay as there is a revolution going on at STFC and we will be abaove you soon in league status.

Just get used to the fact you are a small club and always will be.I wouldn't want Matt Ritchie!! He looks ok in league two but we're building a squad for the championship and I don't think he'd cut it! We should knock this one on the head and do all we can to keep Pugh! It's a prolific striker we need... Anyone remember when Reading were a small club? Money changes things... Look at us in 3 years time..... Up the cherriesIf Bournemouth are now a club with money why is it you keep trying to sign players on the cheap and with instalments. the only good thing about Bournemouth are the babes on the beach in the summerThats why 7 championship and premier league teams were watching him on saturday so Bournemouth bigger than them you are in cuckoo land. You wont make the championship L1 is your maximum you will ever achieve.Will Matt Richie be able to make the step up ? Seems a lot of money to gamble on a league 2 player. IMO if he went to a Premier club chances are he'd be a bench warmer. This rumour does seem to have ruffled a few Robins feathers! Que sera sera.Everyone signs players by installments. Didn't you realise that? Everyone.

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


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 :)


not spending money? they've already spent big on 5 new players you egg(6)(11)Southamptons owner isnt a "dodgy russian". He's a well established swiss businessman. Unlike the rest of the countries clubs owned buy criminals.You need some fans to get it buzzingYou only average 5800 per game not exactly buzzing with that size crowd and your rich russian owner wont last so make the most of it.I heard Eastwood wants a new caravan for his Ma!Not a question of being rich. We're only spending the money brought in by selling most of last seasons team. Nor are we being smug like the Stains fans down the road, when it comes to having the good fortune of an investerRead my comment properly i didnt mention Saints had a russian owner i said Bournemouth - God what school did you go to.They've got to have some money they've just paid £150,000 to make Scott Malone a permanent signing.

All of these players have been linked with Southampton on the site inthe past few days alone:

Jermain Defoe (Spurs)
Carlos Carmona (Barcelona B)
Gary Hooper (Celtic)
Nicola Jelavic (Rangers)
Alessandro Marotta (Bari)
Massimo Donati (Bari)
Robin Ruiter (FC Volendam)
Lewis Mcgugan (Forest)
Kris Commons (Celtic)
Tadanari Lee (Sanfrecce Hiroshima)
Carlos Vela (Arsenal)
Nicky Maynard (Bristol City
Lukas Jutkiewicz (Coventry)
Michael Owen (Man Utd)
Joe Lewis (Peterborough)
Billy Paynter (Leeds)
Jack Lochray (Cowdenbeath)
Sergio Romero (Sampdoria)
Matt Tubbs (Crawley)
Scott Loach (Watford)
Albert Adomah (Bristol City)
Matt Phillips (Blackpool)
Jay Rodriguez (Burnley)
Horelio Gomez (Tottenham)
Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool)
Charlie Austin (Burnley)
Nathaniel Clyne (Crystal Palace)

(BTW I am a Saints fan and I know only 1 or 2 of these are likely to happen)(19)(29)Nicely put. The Defoe and Romero ones were a particular hoot. But I've got to say, of those players, only Lee looks likely.
wallyI am too, and i have a feeling that half these rumours are just from people starting the saints bashing off..Can you tell your deluded fellow saints fans what you have just stated as i get fed up of them thinking they are going to buy every striker they can think of as its total bcks.Celtic fan here.

Hooper and Jelavic won't happen. Hooper is too important a player to offload mid-season unless the money is stupid, while Jelavic is more likely to join an EPL side. Liverpool, QPR, Bolton, Blackburn, Aston Villa, and West Brom are supposedly interested, as well as Atletico Madrid.

As for Commons I've no idea. He's been injured most of the season but there's also talk of him having had a fall out with the manager and if so it's a possibility as another one of our players (Juarez) also fell out of favour, I reckon due to a fall-out and has been offloaded on loan ever since.To the clearly angry guy who posted. if it annoys you, stop reading. I read this every day and saints arent the only clubs croppign up, loads are, weat ham, leicester, severla prem clubs, all apparently buying the world. So deal with it, its a rumour site, its going to happen. Get a grip.Its got every chance of getting at least one of these right ,after all you seemed to have named every player that ever kicked aball since the beginning of time!I agree, but in the end all these rumours mean nothing when you have nicola cortese at the club , he will only tell us on the official website when pen is to paper.and not before, so there are no "insiders or rumours that countIs that all so quite a small squad then for the mighty 'lets buy everyone we have heard of saints'Linked = Yes - Happening = Highly UnlikelyDefoe and Gomez? Are you being seriousYou can have paynter!Some i could see true but coming from a saints fan defoe would be nice but unrealistic.It doesn't bother me that we're being linked with loads of players. I find it interesting, and some of the times, quite funny to be honest. Bothers me more all the people moaning about it.. Not supposed to be taken seriously.

Been useing this website for about 3 years and love looking at the site for a little light hearted fun!You forgot Jordan Rhodes!!

Oh big big wow !!! Cardiff got to the final in 2008. so what? that dosent make them the greatest team. How deluded are you. Brighton have also got to a Cup final (and lost to a better team may I add). Anyway, total and utterly irrelevant of what either team have done in the past. currently there is nought between Brighton and Cardiff. So, all your pathetic comments about Craig Noone going to a better club - all i say is Ha, Ha,Ha, Ha. how deluded are you. Have him if you think you need him. Thatt'll just porve that Cardiff need players from a decent club to move forward. HA, Ha, Ha.(5)(6)Brighton are a small team. The new ground is half complete and the manager is a joke! Cardiff is a proper club with a proper ground and decent manager proven at this level. Bigger fanbase as well.Where are you in the league again i forget...? also just cos he is a decent player doesn't mean he is at a decent club...Somebody needs to pick thier toys up and put them away. Now sit down and behave yourself. Cardiff are 10 places above Brighton , Cardiff on the up , Brighton.......pop! Was that the sound of a bubble bursting??Good luck Wrexham in the FA cup replay!!

Watford close to agreeing nyron nosworthy deal for 18 months; source - sky sports news.

Newcastle once again persuing mervlut erding from psg, in the summer pardew offered 7.5 million but wouldn't take the bid any higher and considering mike ashley has given pardew 8 million to spend the transfer bid will more than likely stay the same; source - chronicle live.(16)(6)Newcastle officials are now actually in Paris trying to sort a contract out with him before he comes for a medial.

Lille have put a 40 million price tag on Eden Hazard with Real Madrid, Arsenal and Liverpool the favourites to sign the player who has admitted that he would welcome a change.(15)(11)How can all three of these clubs be classed as favourites...only one can be made favourite too sign him.,...I am a Liverpool fan and if I could pick one player semi-realistic signing{i.e. not Ronaldo,Messi,Neymar etc.} it would be Hazard but he is moving to Madrid so we can forget about him however Liverpool are eyeing up a summer move for Xherdan Shaqiri, he may not be quite as good but he is a similar player and will still vastly improve our team in the coming years.When have you none arsenal to spend £40 million on a player...@Hazard to man city , to replace samir nasri the flop.

Hooper is apparently back on newcastles radar along with brown and wanyama but only if a big bid comes in for tiote. Pardew has said they wont sign a striker but is a long term admirer of hooper and would consider a bid if the cash is available. If hooper does go portugals top scorer bapa diawarra will come in as a replacement for celtic.(3)(20)Celtic are top and going for the title so y would we want to sell our best players and they are to good for a team like newcastle6 mill my arse more like 12 millWhy do celtic have to sell everyone we dont need money urgently and are building a team if the right offer comes in then the players are for sale but you wont get any player on the cheap

Puncheon will leave for a nominal fee so he can be offloaded from the payrol. Adkins will never involve him in the first team.

Ed's::::: do you have anything on the Hooper to Southampton deal, word is up here is that he has had talks with SFC yesterday? and that a price around 5m will be agreed
also strong rumours is that lennon is bringing in Salihi Hamdi as a replacement {Ed001's Note - I have heard nothing regarding any deal being done. I very much doubt Celtic would sell him for 5m, I find this story extremely difficult to take seriously.}(11)(15)I've heard Connolly might be used as a sweetener I don't agree but have heard itSouthampton, what a joke, a massive backwards step, no european football, no chance of winning anything, and 5 mill is just laughable, 8 mill at leastHooper is going nowhere and not for 5m double that and we might think about it!!!If Andy Carrol is worth £35 million, then £20-25 million is a fair price for Hooper.
But Andy Carrol is not worth that - so let's call it £10m and we'll consider it, then tell you to GTF Pardew 'cos yer a bletherin baw-heid! GIRUY!

-Drogba-£5 million
-Alex-£3 million
-Johnson-£2.5 million
-Samba-£8 million

Not a fan this is just what I heard, 100% when Mark Hughes gets the job.(11)(33)No way in the world, I could give a 100 reasons why but for starters why the hell would they go to a club that will be relegated?And blackburn to sign Messi, Ronaldo, Hulk, Villa and Jesus. Probably just as likely.No chance Drogba or Samba. Why would Drogba take a pay cut and a relegation dog fight when he could double his money in China or PSG. Considering the other clubs that are in for Samba he won't be going anywhere near QPR even with Hughes. Plus he is better than Cahill so top 10 team will sign him.^ agreed ^AJ and Bridge maybe - the rest no chance

No need for abuse though so calm down.Yes there is cos your making us all look pathetic which is why i don't believe your a Saints fan for 1 minute.Y would anybody want to go to southampton...mid table championship team at bestFirstly held is is more likely than hooper because he is cheaper because of his contract! Secondly he's better than hooper! Thirdly nobody predicted de ridder or lee or Hoiveldt but because we bought one player from Celtic we now want there whole team! As I say we will see! Anyone can post a rumour that is why it is a rumour website but clearly you do not understand the concept! It's up to you what you believe!

Adkins admitted that lee Holmes and Jonathan Forte are likely to be sent out on loan in January.
Saints have rejected a £650'000 bid from Blackpool for Jason Puncheon, with Saints wanting closer to £1M for him. saints are not internested in loaning him out again andonly a perminant deal will do

A host of Premier League clubs are hoping to snap up Bristol Rovers starlet Shaquille Hunter.

The 16-year-old winger has up to a dozen top-flight clubs chasing him, and it is believed Manchester City, Liverpool and Fulhamare amongst his admirers.

Hunter has emerged as Rovers' prized asset and has already been called into the first-team squad for a number of games this season.

Rovers are now deciding whether to cash in on Hunter or not, as they are well aware of the proposed Elite Player Performance Plan which, if implemented, this summer could see them lose out on a possible bumper deal.

The EPPP sets a tariff for young players being sold to clubs, but if Rovers brokered a deal now they could decide their own fee and deal, which could easily be in excess of £1million.

Rovers are likely to have their stance tested this month, with top-flight clubs ready to make offers for the skilful winger

Liverpool should bight thier hands off!!!Liverpool have been offered £6.5m straight cash no add ons and at 31 I still think we should sell for £6.5m then make a £12m move for Luuk de Jong who Liverpool have been scouting, he's fair haired, Dutch can play on the right, in behind the striker or up top himself so it's a like for like replacement however this guy is ten years younger and has got the potential to outshine Kuyt.Well, he's guaranteed european football (possibly champions league) at Twente - so do you really think he'll go to liverpool ? don't be daft, lad

Also to those misinformed Bournemouth fans that think they are a bigger club, your highest lge attendance is less than Swindons average!(9)(8)We will always be bigger and more successfulConsidering your in league 2 you cannot call your self a bigger club! what a load of rubbish!Little Robins getting in a flap as Matthew Ritchie again has refused a new contract at Swindon. Cheerio.I Agree Swindon! Your a massive club and I'm sure Ritchie won't leave you for us! Just like Charlie austin stayed at your massive club, Bournemouth is a massive place and with success the town will start to take interest in the club, we are building for success, the plan is the championship and we are on course..... Build it and they will come or should I say build it and Ritchie will come! ....... Don't panic though, you have di canio....... Til the end of the season at least...... Love cherry bear xYou Swindon fans DO make me laugh. Apart from being VERY arrogant, for some reason you seem to think your Oh SO wonderful. Your no bigger than Bournemouth, except you have a deluded fan base with a manager who has delusions of grandeur. We're on the up for a change and know we have an invester to thank, apart from the fact we sold almost an entire team for 4 mil. So I suggest you take a reality check!! UTCIAD


10 Jan 2012 12:11:05
Yes Richie would have gone to Bournemuff if we would have accepted the bid because by accepting a bid you say that you are happy for the player to leave so of course he'll want to go.(3)(5)

Millwall watched Hall at AFC Wimbledon at the end of December and he scored and dazzled in a 4-1 victory for the Shrimpers.(4)(2)Who are you talking aboutCrap rumour.

Hall is NOT for sale. Millwall cant afford him either.

Nathan 'Delfy' Delfouneso has just been spotted arriving into Teeside for a medical! The deal could rise up to £3.5 million.(9)(17)'delfy' obviously so made up as Delfouneso's nickname is Del Boy not Delfy. load of rubbish rumour!!If that were his nickname, I forsee some confusion between him and Fabian Delph.Actually his nickname is 'The Fonz'
Fact not bullste

rangers prepared to cut there losses and let broadfoot, matt mckay, alejandro bedoya and juan ortiz all leave on free transfers freeing up funds to bring sandaza in this month, if jelavic goes aswell then gary o'connor and david templeton will come in providing they havnt signed for any1 else.(4)(23)I can believe letting these players go on frees...nobody is going to pay money for them and it will free up much needed funds for players...hopefully kris boyd, gary o'connor no chance...david templeton ( watch this space)O'Connor is a Edinburgh TIM, more chance of him going to celtic at the end of the season for free.

Estonian striker Tarmo Kink is being loaned out by Middlesbrough to league one side Walsall on a two month loan deal

Kink has struggled for first team football this season and Tony Mowbray wants to send him out on loan to help him find form to force his way back into the starting 11(6)(3)

Keith hill widely tipped as succesor to owen coyle should bolton lose this weekend. Bolton are ovally impressed by the effect he as had in such lil time at oakwell at his ability to buy lil know players and develop them .Its common knowledge keith hill is a bolton wanderers fan. Neil warnock could be his sucessor at oakwell(5)(13)Either way you look at it it seems that Coyle's time is up at Bolton and rightly soI would take Warnock at Oakwell happily


10 Jan 2012 09:55:13
Hi Ed do u know if Mk Dons will sign anyone soon and have they been linked with anyone. {Ed001's Note - I was told they have a bit of cash to spend, by their standards anyway, the issue is wages. So far, I am told, the players they have made discreet enquiries about wanted too much money. I think they will have to set their sights a little lower. They have been looking at fringe Championship players up till now, apparently.}(3)(4)


10 Jan 2012 10:53:04
Got this from a very reliable source.....

Paul Jewell will sign a player today that will raise the spirits of the supporters.

More to follow..(5)(24)Well unless its a Mr L Messi slim chance. PJ is showing his class after spending big in the summer and flirting with the bottom of the table!He won't sign someone to 'raise spirits'.

He'll sign someone to make the team better.Most likely Paul MersonIt is supposed to be Sean St Ledger "mardy" to all at Leicester, watch out if he does sign, not a great defender big mistakes will be made, and if he is dropped then he throws his dummy out the pram,big disruption to any team... good luckEverdently the deal been done wages etc, and its just up to Sean to make his mind up, we might be in a poor league position, but Ipswich is one of the best clubs to join and progress and get games which is what Sean needs


10 Jan 2012 10:52:34
derby county are to sign neil bishop of notts county for 250000(3)(12)Dont think so bishop is a good player but not championship level if he does go its more money for a player that cost us nothing but with the amount of players roumored to be leaving it would be cash plus player deals or we will have no squad


10 Jan 2012 10:49:05
Rumour has it that Middlesbrough are thinking about loaning out or selling their goalkeeper Danny Coyne.Due to lack of playing time. Their price tag is around 1.5 million.(4)(14)If he's not in the Boro 1st team, then he sin't worth £1.5 million. Try £100,000.He's just a bit old to be worth that much


10 Jan 2012 10:44:46
jelavic of rangers to qpr or west brom for 6mil plus add ons rising to 8mil with mccoist being given some money to bring in david templeton of hearts sandaza of st johnstone and o'connor of hibs. Boyd is a no-go apparently. Don't think he'd go to celtic though. Also spurs looking at james forrest if the hoillet deal falls through with blackburn. Kommons to southhampton and hooper staying put until the summer.(11)(26)Jelavic moving looks likely. David templeton to rangers u must b joking! Hes Celtic Daft! not good enough for the old firm IMO. Also read todays papers... Rangers have ditched Sandaza and are now interested in a spannish striker. Commons to Southampton sounds about right. Hooper will leave Celtic, they are already looking a Rapid Vienna striker. Forrest not good enough for Tottenham yet. Needs to develop more! Hibs won't sell O' connor to rangers in a milluion years. Boyd is a more likely option.No way will West Brom pay thatThis guy is way overated 2mill maxHibs would loose him for free in the summer so why wouldnt they sell?Hooper or kommens isnt going in summer
or the january window

Brighton and Hove Albion January Transfers:

IN's (Signings)

Majeta Kezman - (Free)
Joe Lewis - (£900k)(8)(15)Kezman to Brighton!!?? What is with Brighton fans and inflated opinions as to where there club realistically are. Time to get real boys.I think you need to be more realistic pal and not whoever added this rumour. Kezman is past his best (thats if he realy ever got there in the first place) so why you need to say - what is it with Brighton fans?. I think is more - get in the real world and look at what Brighton have achieved and what there ambition is. You still think Kezman is still a big name player (thats why youve critisised this rumour) and obviously jealous that Brighton can attract sush name.Why would'nt Kezman go to Brighton? He's spent a few months playing in Hong Kong which is hardly a high level, so I doubt that he's "too good" for Brighton


10 Jan 2012 10:27:26
Bournemouth arent signing freddy eastwood. Also Swindon fans dont seem to realise just because they have an eccentric manager from italy, they think they are inter milan. You play league 2 football and ritchie would have gone last time if your club had accepted a bid for a player that is worth way under 500k. AFCB will sign Cody Mcdonald before the end of the week(9)(11)God, there is such jealousy about our manager. Just be happy with Lee whats his name.

If a proper team made a realistic offer for Ritchie he may go, but he will not go to a tinpot L1 side for a fee spread over so many months it would not pay the groundsmans wages.
When you are in the Championship and have some cash to offer up front, then give us a call. We'll still turn you down though.So whats your point Mr Cherry fan. Bournemouth are a small club and all of a sudden you have a supposed rich Russian chucking his money about. Ritchie doesnt want to go Bournemouth as he sees you as a step backwards and why should he when Championship clubs are interested in him.
As for Paolo he is going to be a top manager whereas Bradbury is a L1/L2 manager.

You need to get a reality check pal we have bigger crowds than little Bournemouth and normally when we go to your place we take it over in fact last time you didnt have enough room for us.

looking forward to next season.Bournamouth have spent most of their time in L2 and Paolo will get us back up and dont be surprised to see two promotions on the trot from us. He is an intelligent manager and one with character and passion and he is out to prove everyone wrong.
so far 1 defeat in 19 games and getting stronger.Bornmuff are a micky mouse club always have been, Swindon have good backing and far more potential than them and maybe a div 2 club at the moment, yes Ritchie may go to a bigger club but to suggest 500k to bornmuff is the deal he wants is purely a delusion on your part, he's too good for you lot and you aint a big club, why would he want to join you if prem and championship clubs are looking at him.Most of their time in Lg 2 (Div 4?) No...Lg 1 (div 3). 89 seasons in the league. 9 seasons in Lg 2. Bournemouth seem to have got some Swindon fans very uppity though. Funny!Bournemouth are a joke club, and you are proving that the fans are none too smart, read your comments again that Ritchie would have gone if we accepted a bid below the 500k we turned down, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, it makes no sence.... Ritchie is going no where this season, as for thinking we are milan, not at all but we are not bournemouth either..... why would he go backwards even if we did accept your 500k, no way he would join you, so grow up worry about the club you support and stop the green eyed glances as this superior club.... You may have money, but without supporters and a decent ground who are you going to attract ?If di canio is that good he will soon move on you lot have nt got enough money to buy the players he wants as he s already said what he s got is carpWho's better bournmouth or swindon? who cares! ur both small clubs its like trying to decide what tastes better st or sick!


10 Jan 2012 10:22:46

Darron Gibson to Everton (more than likely in the summer on a free) with Tim Cahill departing for Stoke.(17)(18)Tim Cahill is also wanted by a number of Australian clubs, mostly by Melbourne Victory to partner Harry Kewell in midfieldTim Cahill is NOT going to Stoke. This is a rumour perpetuated by certain Stoke fans who seem to particularly pleased at the prospect and Liverpool fans who know that it annoys Evertonians. This is not meant as a slight to Stoke, who are clearly are clearly in the process of establishing themselves as an upper-middling Premiership team (whilst Everton's future is anybody's guess). I know that this is a rumour site and that 95% of what's written here won't happen but please, for everyone's sanity, can we please let this one drop?Tim cahill going stoke {Ed025's Note - no aint

10 Jan 2012 09:58:27
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.

-----------------------------------(6)(10)Lita aint scottish tho.The BBC are reporting it to be Dobbie, it's not just "people"For some reason BBC have reported about Dobbie plus cash. but cannot see this on any other website. strange for the BBCAlthough many Bristol City fans would welcome Leroy back with open arm I'm not so sure the player himself would be interested in rejoining the club. There have been plenty of rumours regarding his behaviour since his move concerning other City players and his general attitude whilst out enjoying the Bristol nightlife. I don't see this rumour having any legs, but as I said many fans would love to see his return.

10 Jan 2012 09:45:11
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...

Even though the dons have been given a million pounds to spend(4)(9)


10 Jan 2012 09:40:25
Cahill transfer being delayed because we wont pay the £100,000 wages that he is wanting.(18)(3)He is not worth of it
go for showcross or vermaelen^ agreed, both would be much better ^This is not a rumour, it is internet news!Heard he's currently earning £39,000 a week and his agent asked Chelsea for £110,000 which is outrageous, he's not even that good, sign Jagielka instead he's far better.

BobbybuffonMoneygrabber cahill. he isnt that great to be paid 100k a wk


10 Jan 2012 08:43:23
Ed all this talk of Rhodes going to every club in the top 3 tiers, where do you think he will actually end up, if he goes anywhere, and will it be in this window or in the summer? {Ed001's Note - I don't think he will go anywhere until the summer at the earliest and Spurs seem the most likely team to get him.}(7)(10)Even then Ed he will be loaned out to a championship team like Ipswich to develop his skills that he learnt at Ipswich through the youth accademy {Ed001's Note - I doubt that very much, the price he is going to cost will ensure he stays at the club that buys him and gets a chance.}IPSWICH fans pls give it up, u let JORD slip through yor fingers, you will never see him again, up the TERRIERSBig thanks to roy keane blinding bit of bizz that son cant think why he is not in a management positionHaha ipswich a championship side thats abit optimistic for next season! quite likey huddersfield could be in the league above u come august! ooh 2 b a , ooh 2 b a terrier. after all them years at man u you'd think roy keane wud b able to spot talent rather than flog on the cheap!

Southampton are set to swoop for Bari striker Alessandro Marotta and midfielder Massimo Donati. 25 year old striker Marotta is currently out of favour despite signing a new deal in the summer at the Italian Serie b side and is beleived to be available for around 1 million Euros, while former Celtic player Donati would cost in the region of 2.5 million Euros.

Southampton look set to sell fringe players Jonathon Forte, Lee Holmes and Tommy Forecast while Lee Barnard looks set to move to Championship side Ipswich Town on loan if he passes a medical.(8)(7)Will there be any strikers left available anywhere as Saints will be signing everyone apparentlyOf course there will be strikers left you muppet. We have (apparently) an 'interest' in about 5. No more than any other club, we just have irritatingly speculative supporters.So random it is probably true......I was joking you person as you lot think you are signing every striker going. just to mention a couple Jukiwetz- Maynard- Sharp keep being mentioned i can just see Cortese signing all these plue the Bari striker its total pie in the sky.Once again, ALL clubs get linked with alot of strikers, doesnt mean you sign them all idiot. A good manager keeps options open, holds talks with a few so we have back up options. Other wise whats the point. Stop criticising and worry about your own clubBarnard has only recently had an operation. And is out for most of the season. So I think it's a given that he'll fail the medical.."I was joking you person..."

Holloway? Is that you?If Barnard was fit he'd be more than welcome at Ipswich

On present form 2m would be about right. Get in the real world!Steven Davis has never been worth £5M

Piquionne in advanced talks with Celtic regarding an 18 mth contract .
Hooper speculation and interest from Southampton and now Sunderland has convinced the board they should sell at the right price...believed to be 6.75 milion pound rising to 7.5 million pounds if the south coaster's get promoted ...also a further payment could be factered in if Hooper breaks into England set-up within next 2 years.
Arthur(12)(9)Stupid rumour - Southampton won't pay more than 4.5m for a player - so unless Hooper is available for around that price seems very unlikelyHow is that a load of rubbish? when saints had a 6 mill bid turned down for jay rod from burnley in the last window. U people dont realise who we are after or what money we have got.If we really want him then we'll fork out the cash, but seems like one of a number of targets for Saints

Im a west ham supporter in australia and want to know y do clubs have to wait till the last week of transfer window to bring in new players into the club then the players that we want get other offers from other clubs and we miss out on the players we want lets get em know y wait?(7)(4)Saves them a few weeks wages and some clubs desperate to sell in the last week that they take lower bids. other clubs more determined to keep players so ask for more. so stupid. Get business done early and get the new players bedded in quickly.Teams like to have replacement players in place also haggeling over prices /feesBecause West Ham are a last resort club for any half decent player

Southampton in:

Robbin Ruiter
Lewis Mcgugan
Gary Hooper
Kris Commons
Tadanari Lee

Southampton out:

Ryan Doble
Lee Holmes
Jonathan Forte
Guly(8)(13)Im a saints fan, and this is ridiculous...why would we buy 2 more keepers when we have Davis who still has about 1-2 years left in him. Bialkowski who, may have had a mare in one game, but has been pretty solid in his other performances and Adkins rates him highly.

Gary hooper would be a good signing yes, but to be honest i think with the amount of interest sparked from our inquiry i think we will get outpriced easily. Cortese wont spend ridiculous amounts for a striker that isnt much better than Lambert who cost £1million..

In terms of outs, Doble won't go anywhere except on loan, Adkins wont get rid of youth players so easily considering he wants 50% of the team to be homegrown. Holmes and Forte will no doubt leave on loan, but may be used in exchange deals/sold to free up wages. Guly, this is just stupid, yes he may be a bit 'lazy' at times, but pulls through when we need him and is rated quite highly!Guly Do Prado will not be sold. He is a regular first team player so why would he leave?Southampton In's will be:

Tadanari Lee (definite)
One of Ruiter or Mcgugan
One of Hooper or Commons.

Not every single one. There is interest in them all but we won't sign every single player on our shortlist, we will be lucky to get any of the above considering our tight view on transfers.

Southampton out:
Doble (Loan)

And Guly will not go anywhere, he is our second top scorer and current first team member If anything he will slip to being a back up player if we bring in another forward.Southampton would be a great team for hooper and commons, but hooper definatly isnt going anywhere might have a shot with commons but will do his usual.... will be absolutly brilliant for half season then utter rubbish the next, we were warned when he came from derbyI dont think GULY will be sold some how!I think Forecast might need to be added to the outs list

The Celtic board have approved consideration of offers for Hooper in excess of 5 million with add ons. They have requested David Connolly become a make weight in the deal with Southampton. Connolly would relish the opportunity to finish his career at the club he has supported since a boy.(11)(10)


10 Jan 2012 07:16:24
Seems Southampton just make low offers for all players they are interested in and more often than not they are rebuffed.(12)(7)Its called "running a business"Isn't that what most clubs do?Not Leicester, they make overly large offers to players that are "not for sale" and pay them high wages when the offer is accepted.I keep telling saints fans Cortese wont pay over the odds and there 12k wage cap is the problem so Adkins will always get budget players- Fact but its like talking to a brick wall with Saints fans and they cant accept it.

isn't it funny how you english footy fans think you are so high and mighty when you talk about the old firm, glasgow rangers have won more major trophies than any team in the WORLD(feel free to look that one up) and both rangers and celtic attract 50,000 plus attendances every home game. so before you spout your sh1te on this page hav a think about how successful YOUR team REALLY is before sllagging us off..rant over(14)(25)Crikey, cant wait for Scotland to get independence from the UK. Then we would finally hear the last of "massive" Celtic and Rangers joining the EPL!Any team with a big support and money could win trophies in your Mickey Mouse League ! You 2 wouldn't even get out of the Championship in England!We could all win lots of trophies if we played in a mickey mouse league!!If the premiership consisted of two half decent teams and 18 other abyssmal teams (like SPL does) then Manchester United or Liverpool would be the most decorated teams in the world.

On the major stages i.e Champions League Rangers have never really done a lot, granted Celtic had a golden era. Just look at the performance of Sotland national team to see how mediocre SPL is.

Teams in Prem who get gates of around 50,000 are Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal, Newcastle, Sunderland and Liverpool.

For size of city of Glasgow so they should get 50k plus.U said major trophies what Scottish league 54,Scottish cup 33,Scottish league cup 27 and cup winners cup 1 I only c 1 major trophy there as the rest is a 50-50 chance of winner cos the one you didnt win celtic did ( Scottish football 2 horse race every year)Your league is poor thats why!? put either of them in the prem and see what happens relegation battle if your teams were so good you would at least turn up for the champions league"MAJOR trophies"!! It's like winning a coin-tossLol.... How many trophies were won outside The Mickey Mouse Scottish league??Your comparing a competition that is totally uncompetitive to the fastest most competitive league in the world. I bet if even tottenham went to spl they'd be undefeatedThats because there is a lack of quality in the spl, yes your a big club, but nobody else has the financial power to compete, so your bound to win alot more trophys because there is only one other club to give you competion, and i'd hardly count the spl as a major trophy anyways, doesn't it come filled with pic'n'mix?You spoilt it by saying MAJOR TROPHIESIf rangers or Celtic were ever to leave the comfort of the SPL the 'major trophies' (said painfully) would dry up like a pond in the Sahara - FACT.
Who were the last team to give the top 2 a decent run for their money, Hearts (paying their players in Haggis & Jellie Beans) or Hibs (2nd bottom of the SPL).........Sorry what's this about? I lost interest as soon as i read "old firm", i can get Sunday League on the local park, it's slightly better quality and it rains less. The downside is there are no pasty gingers to laugh at, ho hum.Hope you didn't include glasgow cup in your total of major trophies cos if you did you are on a loser mateFor a wee country winning 3 europeon cups a super cup, an getting into a few semi/europeon finals ain't to bad. Granted our national team have been crap last few years, getting a bit better now though. But what about INGER-LAND complete and outter P15H. Last time your team where in a final is when you bribed a russian lines man. Top sides in the world lol, explain to me why is your national side such a big streak of PI5H haha.Ha ha ha, just spat my drink everywhere you should be a standup comedian, its like putting inter milan in league 2 and them boasting about winning the league.... of course you have trophies, there are no other clubs challenging for them...The only reason EPL teams are considered better is due to the masive tv rights that give each club about 30 million in revenue to spend each year. whilst in Scotland you get just over 1m. if either OF club had that to spend of course they would cope in the EPL and within 5 yrs be a top 6 team. i dont support either but you can only spend what you are givenTo the person who posted that the standard of football in the SPL is comparable to the standard of the Scottish national team - most of the Scottish national team play for teams in the EPL.Personally with the Secterianism problem you have up there ,and all the Racism problems that the English leagues have got can,t see this happenin any time soon plus if You get
Independance you might have to apply for the League of Ireland.Other than Darren Fletcher name a player who plays on a top 6 club in the English Premier League, don't count Alan Hutton because he never would make the Spurs team now. All the scottish national players play for the bottom feeders of the prem. The only spark you have is Jordan Rhodes who is only a proven goalscorer at the League One level. Get your head out of your ass mate, Celtic and Rangers would barely make it out of the ChampionshipCeltic couldn't even win an away game in the champions league and would struggle in the chumpionship as would Rangers - SPL is a joke.I mean there ok stupid meThought ur talking about qprSeems a bit rash to say that the Celtic would fail in English football.

With Sky TV money, in addition to the enormous worldwide support they have it wouldnt be long before they were becoming contenders. Parkhead will have 50k plus fans in to watch the likes of St Mirren and is full to capacity (over 60k) for bigger games so revenue generation wouldn't be a problem and as we all know that is what it all comes down to in the end.

Another point I would like to make is that despite being portrayed by all and sundry as a poor team in a poor league it seems that almost every member of the Celtic first team is attracting interest from a Premiership team at the moment, just have a look through the rumours page.

As for people coming on here saying Celtic are broke and Celtic are in financial trouble I would like to set you all straight- Rangers are the ones in dire straights, Celtic currently have basically zero debt and 3 billionaires on the board which means not only are we in a far healthier financial state than most of the Premiership, we absolutely dont have to sell any of our top players.

DavidMacAnother boring post from the scottish pub sunday league !

maximusMight have to pawn some of the silverware to clear the debtsWell saidThe SPL is a poor league with poor players , Fact! Championship is about the level of the SPL.

Southampton bought hoiveld from Celtic right? A player that didn't even get a game for Celtic but he can get a game for southampton? Proves how much better Southampton are?!!(9)(13)Or proves your manager doesn't know a decent defender if he is under his noseBet you wish you had him now.!I agree Southampton fans are living in a dream landJust proves you didn't know what a good player you had.We saw enough of him, he is hopeless and if your team gets into the premiership he will be found out bigstyle. Same as Caldwell at Wigan, another donkey.


10 Jan 2012 03:47:41
craig bellamy has enjoyed his time at liverpool but believes his future lies with cardiff he wont be sold in this transfer window but the next and also maxi rodriguez will switch to aston villa barcelona to sign vincent company from manchester city as a deal estimated at 28m pounds alsoreal madrid to sign edison cavani so chelsea fans can stop dreaming.(5)(24)


10 Jan 2012 02:41:09
have heard the following moves will occur in january :
essien - fulham 1month loan (fitness)
krasic - chelsea £9mil
cahill - chelsea £7mil
podolski - arsenal £11mil
rodegella - everton loan
cavani - man city £50mil
pogba + morrison (man u ressies) - stoke loan
tevez - psg £30mil(22)(22)Essien would go into the Chelsea reserve team to get fitness, not to Fulham for a pointless 1 month loan!Could be trueWhy would Wigan let Rodallega go out on loan? He's one of their best players so anyone after him would have to buy


10 Jan 2012 02:39:24

Piquionne in advanced talks with Celtic regarding an 18 mth contract .
Hooper speculation and interest from Southampton and now Sunderland has convinced the board they should sell at the right price...believed to be 6.75 milion pound rising to 7.5 million pounds if the south coaster's get promoted ...also a further payment could be factered in if Hooper breaks into England set-up within next 2 years.
Arthur(17)(21)Hooper is awesome!Im a celtic fan and hes a great playeer hope he doesnt go


10 Jan 2012 01:51:24
Hi ed, have you heard anything about man united signing anyone this January? Plus I live in Basel and FCB Basel are not selling shaqiri this transfer window thanks I then qualifying for the latter stages of the champions league, but he will be gone this summer!! {Ed001's Note - I am really not sure what is going on there, I would have expected a midfielder and full back to join in January, but Scholes' return suggests that a midfielder is not going to happen. I do still expect a right back, if the right one can be tempted to move ahead of the Euros. That, I believe, has ruled out any move for Azpilicueta, who seems to be the first choice, judging by the amount of times they have scouted him.}(10)(5)


10 Jan 2012 01:35:35
Graham Westly to be named as new pne manager.(9)(12)There will be a press conference to announce this some time today.Odd's on that PNE will sack him in 18 months time when he fails to get the club promotion back to the Championship.This guy is no mug just what pne need in my opinion to get the best out of a decent but lazy squad.


10 Jan 2012 00:44:36
Heard something about Marlon King heading back to coventry?!(7)(24)He should have been sent to coventry by all of football years ago.


10 Jan 2012 00:40:18

Brentford In's:

Steven Gillespie (Colchester United) could be heading to Griffin Park after being spotted at Ealing Broadway station
It is though Gillespie would be available for around £50,000.


Karleigh Osborne to Charlton - £120,000
Kirk Hudson to Hayes & Yeading United - Free(3)(9)The premis for Gillespie leaving Colchester is that he was spotted a railway station! OMFG


10 Jan 2012 00:33:34
manchester untited
are looking at olympakos right
back vaslis
can u see this ed {Ed001's Note - they are certainly looking for a right back, United have scouted Azpilicueta extensively, so it is certainly possible. I have no info on it though one way or the other.}(9)(12)


10 Jan 2012 00:29:23
Davis of rangers to a championship side for 2.5 mil . Also snodgrass to norwich(19)(25)£2.5m ... ha ha ha, no.

10 Jan 2012 00:06:30
