Arsenal hav mad a bid 4 arshavin a hell be comin on wednesday
  Arsenal have recently had a 10 million pounds offer for Andrei Arshavin rejected. Fact. It is rumoured that Wenger will next raise this to a 12 million pounds bid for the Russian playmaker. If this is not successful, Wenger will take his offers no higher than 15 mil for Arshavin, however this should definitely be enough, as a Zenit official says that both Arsenal and Zenit are keen to get the deal done, and a deal should 'certainly' be struck by the end of the January transfer window. Arshavin is also apparently 'desparate' to move to Arsenal. This deal should be completed within 2 weeks time. To the person who said that Man City could easily outbid us to Arshavin, whilst this is very true, why would Arshavin want to move to a team that is involved with the relegation scrap and only plays UEFA Cup football, when he already plays for the current UEFA Cup holders and a Champions League side? It is Arsenal he wants, and if he does not end up at Arsenal and does go to City it will only be because Wenger is not willing to pay the fee for Arshavin. Expect Arshavin to sign for Arsenal this week for around 12 mil.

  Will people stop saying that wolves players are going out to a different club. I was speaking to Mick McCarthy at the audi garage in Wolverhampton because i was working there when he came to buy a car for his son. He said no one is going anywhere and the hasnt been any offers either. But he did say that Jon Joe O'Toole is coming. Thats why he was on the bench friday night.
  Boyd is going no where until at least the summer and the only rangers players leaving are barry ferguson to middlesbourgh for about £3mil if o'neil goes to portsmouth and mcgregor to spurs for £7.5mil if Gomes leaves this month which would be a good peice of business because hes shite and that's coming from a rangers fan. one of tonel from sporting, stranzl from spartak moscow or berra from hearts will come in and take over from davie weir whos retiring and rangers might sign john utaka from portsmouth if they can strike a deal and perter lovenkrands could join on a free if john utaka doesn't sign. this isnt pish, these are real rumours
  Rangers to sell boyd ferguson and boughera with massive loan deals coming in including tevez until end of season, bentley from spurs end of season and we will make a move for joey barton permanent £3 mil also coming in are garry kenneth dundee united, boumsong lyon permant free, urby emanualson from ajax £2 mil rangers just freeing up wages for big signings by getting rid of deadwood.
  Sunderland are on the up. Expect a CH (to partner Ferdie) and surprise – Titus Bramble in on the radar. Ricky believes he has the power he needs and not asmany mitekes as big noz. Also Cisse won't be signed as he came to raise his profile and will end up with a champs league team. David Nugent is seen as the cheap option – watch this space!!
  Regarding the Arshavin to Arsenal deal, it shoould be sealed soon enough, no doubt by the end of the window at least.
As for the supposed hijacking of this by Man City. . WHY would Arshavin want to join a team currently in 15th and only two points away from the drop zone.
As for the top 5 at the end of the season it will be:
1. Man Utd (Unfortunately)
2. Arsenal (Improved 2nd half of season should see us there)
3. Chelsea (Not playing well enough this season)
4. Liverpool (Can't keep up the performances)
5. Villa (Not top 4 level and will drop off soon)
  Sanogo of Bremen to Newcastle on loan with a perm at the end of the season as well as either Jo of city or Bent (suprise in order to try and keep ahold of Owen) Lovenkrands should be a done deal as well as an enquiry for Bentley which depending on who Harry gets in inthe mean time just may happen but this will be just a stepping stone to the likes of Liverpool next season.
  As i said the other day lovenkrands would not return to ibrox but would instead head to newcastle. . and what happens today (mon 12th)? so on that note boyd WILL drop his wages demands and will sign for birmingham expect this to happen by thurs or fri. . ignore what his agent is saying he is going like it or not.
also smith has stated that he only needs to sell one player WRONG ferguson will be going to, forget newcastle though, he's heading to middlesbrough expect this to be confirmed by the end of next week.

  West ham are set sign 2 promising youngsters from seria A. This will now be west ham policy of bringing youngsters through and sell them on for huge profits.
  Just a heads up people. . . .

McGeady will be leaving Celtic this month (i posted this months ago, first one to do so) he will be going to Bayern Munich for 7 million pound to replace Frank Ribery who is being lined up by Manchester United and Arsenal.
United want him to replace the 'winker' who is Madrid bound in the summer and utilise the both of them the rest of the season, however the Gooners want him to steady a sinking ship and Wenger believes he alongside Arshavin will keep the moaners happy for the time being?

  Big changes at Manchester United will see SAF retire at the end of this season yes you heared me right he will step down and work within United Backroom staff. Tevez will not be signed by united he will instead go to real madrid which is a clever ploy by united to get benzema if real sign tevez they won't have enough to buy benzema nor will a strikers position be available for him at real therefore he will sign for united for 35m 3m more then tevez but younger and better.Scholes and giggs will both retire as well but will do coaching jobs with ole. Edwards and gill want sven as next manager but fergie and sir bobby both want a certain special one ready for next season keep an eye on him when inter play united you will see what i mean hes already agreed to join when fergie retires.Ronaldo will not go to madrid but will end up at barca for 50m instead which is better for united and not real madrid which is why fergie has agreed the sale.Messi was talked about in the deal but he don't want to go to uk after spain he wants to try italy.
  Helo. i am from valencia in spain for me i beleive manuel fernandes is going to everton because much talk is happening here that this will happen. 8 million euros is fee in summer. for now is very important for everton to have 0.5 euros for a loan in our papers in janary.
  Stoke to james beattie for 4 million
  All of these tranfers will be completed by the end of the transfer window–:

defoe pompey to spurs – 15m (done)
bellamy west ham to man city – 12m
lovenkrands free agent to newcastle – free
valencia wigan to real madrid 15m
jj otoole watford to fulham 1.5m
j tabb coventry to reading 400k
santa cruz blackburn to mancity 19m
t olsen brondby to everton 1.5m
n zogbia newcastle to arsenal – 5m

  Celtic fc fans !

FACT meekbaw
  John carew is in talks with Everton.

The club are in talks with Slovakian international Peter Pekarík. Pekarik is a free agent in the summer.
  To the guy who said liverpool will be bought over by saudis, the only saudi people rich enough to afford a premiership club are the royal family, who happen to be man utd fans. That is why utd were invited to play a frindly there in jan last season. Also the saudi telecom company which is owned by them also sponsors utd and are favourites to be the new shirt sponsors next season.

As for transfer rumours, utd to secure first option on fabian delph from leeds before he joins the club in july. Utd will also complete the signing of karim benzema in the summer when carlos tevez is allowed to leave (for madrid). Expect utd to sign axel witsel depending on the scholes retirement/hargreaves injury situation
  Big Rumour around Toon. . Jermaine Jeans is heading back. .JK Believes he can Shore up the Midfield. . Lovekrands has already signed 2 year contract but Jeans rumour is circulating like Flys around a garbage bin. .
  I work as a PR for a well known World Football magazine and have been informed of this shocking news: Ronaldo to Man City for £62.8 million. Apparently it has been penned for weeks.

  News from Scotland's capital ,
Hibs boss Mixu Patelinan is interesting several struggling english championship after his gentlemanly performance and tactical nous stood out in the recent derby game,It is also rumoured that he has been invited to be a presenter on bbc Scotlands new fishing show called "gone fishing "due to start filming in may.
Hibs player Steven Fletcher has only Celtic left interested in buying him after english clubs scouts have backed down on there interest ,its understood he will move at the end of the month.

over at tynecastle ,Kingston will have left by the end of the week,Jose Gonsalves will move permanently away from Hearts ,Berra may be able to stay until the summer as will Andrew Driver as hearts want to get a european place.
Hearts have also made a move for 3 unamed SPL players .

I'm not a cousin of a player's wife or anything like that but this truly did happen.

I was in a bar in merchant city the other day and Bobo Balde walked into the bar. I chatted with him for a few moments and told him how much I wished he was still playing at Celtic.

His response? "Wait until the summer". Could it be that Bobo will be back playing in the hoops come the summer?

If so, that means Strachan must be for the off because theres no way Strachan will play Bobo. I had heard a couple of weeks ago of a rumour that Roy Keane would be Celtic manager this summer but I wrote if off at the time. Not now though. .
  Liverpool to be bought by Saudis!!!
You gotta laugh at that one haven't you!
Hello, Saudi Arabia, a Sharia Islamic country where alcohol is BANNED is going to buy a team with Carlsberg writ large on their shirts. You gotta stop smoking that illegal sh1t.LoL!
Now to some real news, with Anelka and Scolari having a bust up it won't be the manager leaving Chelsea but the striker. Destination? Everton on loan until the summer or Anelka will be making a regular appearance on the Chelsea reserves subs bench.
–––––––––––––––––––SUPA 1878–––––––––––––––––
  Never ceases to amaze me how these people who are high placed sources at Premiership Clubs or who work for the BBC can neither spell or turn off caps lock. . . .

Anyway, Forest fans can look forward this week to Christian Dailly joining on a free to provide the experience that Billy Davies is looking for. Also expect an audacious bid to take Nickey Shorey on loan from Villa to fill the troubled left back spot. Dan the Man.
  I love this site, it's great having soooo many people related to someone at a club or in the FA, it's great. The Santander bank rumour with Liverpool really made me laugh, they have cut 1900 jobs in britain and their gonna buy Liverpool to get their foot in the UK market.
Anyway. .
Arsenal to sign
Arshavin £13.5m approx (figure lower than people saying cos of the drop in the world market)
Battaglia £4m (a genius Wenger signing that nobody else has spotted)
Maybe a defender
Dont expect big summer signings as Wenger is using some of his summer budget in Janurary
  After failing in numerous bids to bring in a striker on a permanent basis Barnsley manager Simon Davey will turn his attention to the loan market. Top of his list of targets are Henri Camara(Wigan) & Andy Carroll(Newcastle).

Davey has also made a six figure bid for a yet un–named League 2 midfielder, and hopes to tie up the deal before next Saturdays match at Norwich.

It is also expected that 2 first team squad members will leave befoe the end of the transfer window as he tries to freshen things up, as he feels the team has become stagnent.

These are not just rumours but have come from within the club.
  Everton news–:
everton will sell lescott to man city for 15.5m plus richard dunne as he has fell out out with mark hughes.
moyes will sign michael mancienne from chelsea for 3m.
then everton will sign jermaine jenas for 4m as he has fell out with harry redknapp.
moyes will then put a bid in for pompeys diop for 5m
then everton will go in for a striker with moyes moving for the following players
darren bent from spurs for 7m as he will not get his game now defoe has gone there,
saviola loan from real madrid,
kenwyne jones from sunderland for 9m
kevin davies from bolton for 5m
moyes will leave it till the last minute until he then puts a 1.5m bid in for dyer
possible outs
lescott 15.5m to man city plus dunne
arteta 18m+
  Liverpool have agreed a pre–contract with emile heskey so he will join in the summer,

Also joining in the summer will be:

Glen johnson 10m (release clause in his new contract)

Hernanes 6m

Renato Augusto 10m

Kuba 8m

Mexes 9m

Gareth Barry 15m
  Kaka and cudicini to sign for man city before the end of the transfer window.

you heard it here first]

ranting rafa
  It's just a rumour but i have it on good authority liverpool will be under new ownership by the end of the week but it's being kept quiet. The new owners are saudis (shock horror) and will try to make a massive signing before end of the transfer window. However the priority for new owners will be the new stadium as they want the club to generate money. I for one will be just glad to see the end of the inept lying americans.
  Ross Wallace has completed permanent move to Preston, with Miller and Murphy set to follow through exit doors at the SOL. QPR interested in murphy whilst mick mccarthy could be tempted by miller. Sunderland getting rid of deadwood, that does not include chops tho. need a CB, bougherra and Berra will be looked at if we don't sign one from a prem club in next week or so. Sbragia is also keen on michael ball filling in at left back for the seemingly always injured mccartney.
  Jermaine Beckford to rival league one team! Imminent!
