Alex and Santa Cruz to QPR. Tevez to real Madrid for Higuin and 20 million!(9)(43)Do you work for man city or real madrid or just playing 12 year old fantasy football manager on your laptop in your bedroom?

Higuain is worth more than Tevez is. Tevez isn't worth taking on, so why would Madrid want him when they don't need him? Go and play on FIFA 12 ffs and leave this to the adults who know football!!Alex has already said no..Higauin and £20m for Tevez? Are you writing this from the pub?

Ryan Donnelly from Airdrie is to sign for Cardiff City for £150,000.

Scored 23 goals this season and is 20 years old.(17)(16)That would be an excellent signing for the Bluebirds.


12 Jan 2012 23:06:59
Scouts at Manchester United are expected to be sent to monitor Rosenborg BK's creative midfield player Markus Henriksen following reccomendation from Utd icon, now Molde head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 19 year old impressed for the Tippeligaen outfit last season scoring 14 goals from central midfield, resulting in his efforts being rewarded with the domestic 'Young Player of the Year' award and

The player's father Trond Henriksen, former player and current assistant manager at the club, has reportedly held talks with his son's agent Andreas Ekker in the aim to move him on to bigger and better things. There has also been confirmed interest from Serie A side Napoli.

United's interest in the player follows the return of legend Paul Scholes to the injury ravaged squad at the age of 37, some 18 years older than Henriksen. There has been increasing pressure for Sir Alex to strengthen his midfield and Henriksen, who would be allowed to leave his current club for around £12M, looks to be the name at the top of his list.(17)(16)This is absolute rubbish ! Markus Henriksen scored two goals for Rosenborg last season, making it 10 goals since his debut in the 2009 season,

He has clearly got some potential, but he's far from good enough to ever play for a club like Manchester United. The price you put on him is absolutely ridiculous ! If Rosenborg is offered something in the region of 2-4 million £ they'll sell him in a heartbeat.

The Norwegian

Samba deffo to spurs or mate plays for a london
Side and hes adament.
Blackburn r going dwn so samba doesnt want to stay
So keane needs to take his head out his backside and sell him While he can get a decent price cos he'll get nothing when hes a championship player(24)(12)Samba has revealed today that he wants 2 joi PSG and as they have serious dosh i would say thats where he will b goingAre you serious?! "My mate plays for a London side" - so that means he knows where Chris Samba, who plays for Blackburn, is moving to? Except he doesn't - it's one out of two?

I'm all for people revealing their "sources" but you are a cake-taker!Your mate plays for a london side, and he's Adam Ant?

i thought he'd be too old to play football, oh well.....every day is a school day


12 Jan 2012 22:01:32
Leicester to give up on Sharp, instead Leicester to make a bid for Kevin Davies from Bolton for £4million and Cardiff City midfielder Peter Whittingham for £6million.

Andy King to leave Leicester for Wigan before the window closes.(13)(41)You're obviously not a local lad otherwise you'd have seen the report on East Midlands Today that confirmed the club (Andrew Neville) was talking to Sharp whilst the camera crew were at the stadium! Other than that you were spot on.Btw - Sven has left, Pearson is in charge now, £6m and £4m... i don't think so, but a nice try all the same.What kind of fantasy world do you live in? £4 million for a playet of Davies age!! And if Whittingham is worth £6 million I would like to see where Wigan are getting £15million to buy Andy King!!Where do ppl get there info from?? Pearson is not gonna lose interest in sharp when a bid has been accepted already ... as i said yesterday on ere Leicester Assistant Manager Craig Shakespeare 'Extremely Confident' he will sign in nxt couple of days

12 Jan 2012 21:39:23
Barcelona in talks with Brighton about loaning some of there B team players. Barcelona officials were impressed with Gus Poyet style of play and feel this would be a perfect club to send some youngsters for experience(15)(34)Absolute tosh. Barca have a reserve side playing competitive football in the 'championship' of Spain.Barcelona B play in the second division of the Spanish Liga which is a perfect place for them to gain experience. Given the players who've come through that route I can't see why all of a sudden they would feel it better to send them to Gus PoyetBarcelonas B team would the league last year but they not allowed to be promoted because they would be in the same league as their First team.. So they dnt need BrightonLmao! you couldn't make this st up if you tried, what next, Southampton to win the Champions League? oh wait, their fans think it's possibleBarcelona are well known to look at the Brighton set up and aspire to get there's to a similar level...No Saints fan old enough to remember playing at The Dell thinks we're better than we are. Barca players to Brighton?! More chance of Pooyet being a Saints fan.


12 Jan 2012 21:47:55
Charlton have had a bid accepted for Danny Haynes from Barnsley.

Millwall had a loan offer rejected earlier.(20)(3)


12 jan 2012 21:33:20
any bury fc transfer news??(5)(5)Coke til end of season


12 Jan 2012 21:28:50
Constable won't go to swindon, he will only go to a club in a higher division. Even then, that's not guaranteed considering he turned down bournemouth earlier in the season(9)(8)


12 Jan 2012 21:27:18
Polish Goalkeeper Artur Boruc is set for a shock return to Celtic. The Fiorentina stopper has 5 months left on his contract and the Italian club are eager to cash in on the keeper.

Nikica Jelavic, Allan Mcgregor and Dorin Goian are set to depart Rangers this transfer window. Nikica Jelavic has been strongly linked with a host of Premiership clubs and it seems that Everton will come out of the pack to sign the Croatian for a fee believed to be around £7 million. Mcgregor is set to complete a move to Malaga for a fee around £5 million and central defender Goian is set to depart for Bolton in a cash plus player deal which would see the Ibrox club bag £1 million plus the services of Bolton defender Paul Robinson.(15)(32)You're forgetting the bit where Gray Hooper joins SouthamptonCould nt care less about the boruc 1 but as for mcgregor goian and jelavic its all garbage 1st mcgregor mccoist wants him to stay and hes also is rangers through and through and would play into his 50s if he could then we have goian who only just signed and has been the bedrock of our side who also is lovin his football at ibrox and now jelavic liverpool everton qpr to name but a few supposedly all want him with the pool linked with demba ba and another couple of strikers have nt been in touch since bein told to bolt in the summer everton like rangers have nt got 2 pence to rub together at the moment and the qpr manager tht expressed interest in him has been given the boot so tht kinda pours cold water over these rumours good luck on the boruc 1 the guys a legend in glasgow PMSLDont be so bloody stupid Everton havent got 7 million to spend on anyoneEverton are like Rangers they dont even have 7 penceUtter garbage. Malaga have just signed a keeper Kemeni. Rangers paid 800k for big Goian so would want more than 1m. Robinson is a 1st team player at Bolton, why would they let him leave. All the above means this rumour is steIf we gave you £1million to take Robinson from us- would you do it? He's a total disaster area!


12 Jan 2012 21:26:33
Silly nonsense about Jutkiewicz and Southampton. He's having a medical at Middlesbrough and will sign there for £2-million tomorrow. Everton will get a cut of that - part of the deal that brought him to Coventry.(22)(9)I heard £1.5mThink Adkins will regret not signing the lad. He is a Saints fan and would have given all on the pitch. Hopefully 1 top quality finisher plus Lee already signed, centre back as cover and maybe a midfielder are on the agenda as we have alot of injuries at the moment. Happy new year to ALL football fans, from a polite Saints fan.Ah yes, the same confidence that you boro fans were saying it would be done deal and announced Wednesday. Good luck with that. Out of the two teams saints are better, and he's a lifelong saints fan..wonder where he'd rather be..I can see Jutkiewicz signing for Saints as he is an ideal forward in the Championship and will help the push for the championship.Thank a Saints fan i'm glad hes gone elsewhere.


12 Jan 2012 21:24:34

America & W Ham, QPR, Lufc, Ipswich interested why would he choose Cov?!Kightly will not be coming on loan as he is first choice now infront of hammill.U can have woolford on a free and most city fans might even pay ur lot to take him off us. Worst footballer I've ever seen!Cant see us selling vokes, he may go there on loan like he did wiv burnley, nd i would rather choose hammill ova kightlyThis is a wishlist. The only rumour to come of it will be others saying the names have been mentioned by someone on this site.Oxford just turned down a 200k bid from swindon for constableWho are stevenage town?.... Craig Reid is injured and wont be back till Feb!Hmm you cant even spell REID correctly. plus im a stevenage fan and know hes out until febuary.Please please take Michael Brown, he takes up a ton of wages and brings very little to our squad (he's nowhere near the prem player he was when portsmouth were in prem.)Every time I have seen Unnamed Striker play for Man Utd reserves he's been great, you're getting a great player on loan.


12 Jan 2012 21:18:22
Cardiff 2 sign Craig Noone(13)(9)


12 Jan 2012 21:15:00
Millwall are looking into signing Cray Wanderers Striker Leigh Bremmer. Scouts have bee watching him for 2 weeks and looking to bid £10,000(3)(3)Seriously, Leigh is over 30 and near the end of his career. He was with Millwall as a kid but he got released. If Millwall are scouting Cray, which a lot of teams are there are miles better prospects available


12 Jan 2012 20:49:22
any news on watford signing Smith from QPR
also will H come back as MH didnt like
him @ Fulham(6)(6)H? That bloke from Steps?Helguson didn't play under Hughes at Fulham....No & No sorry


12 Jan 2012 20:44:38
Ed any news on middlesbrough rumours other than lukas jutckzewis {Ed001's Note - the only new thing I have heard is a couple of your youngsters have been offered around League 1 and 2 for loans for the rest of the season. Not sure who before you ask, sorry, but I would think it should be possible to work it out as they have to be 18 to go out on loan or is that just the Prem?}(3)(3)Lukas jutkiewicz is Discussing persenal termsApparently he has done a 4 and half year contract could be in squad too face Burnley Tarmo kink in talks with some polish squad for-sale and someone is after Scott MacDonald and mowbray is after 2 maybe 3 more signings could be wingers cause he is trying too sell Halliday and the sale of Kink


12 Jan 2012 20:37:48
Leicester City are stalling on St Ledgers transfer to Ipswitch Town till after FA Cup replay with Forest due to Sol Bamba goin to African Cup Of Nations with Ivory Coast....Also Leicester Assistant Manager 'Extremely Confident' of Billy Sharp snubbing Doncaster Rovers in favour of move to the King Power Stadium in nxt couple of days after a week of negotiations being held(10)(10)Sharp has not even talked to Leicester so that must tell you he is not that excited at prospect of joining you.Clearly another person tht dunno wot hes chatting about....i dnt post untrue stuff these are FACTS!! look em up yourselfSharp will sign soon I'm sure, I don't think he relishes the thought of being donny and league 1s highest paid player!Sharps agent was talking to Leicester all weekend and sharp himself has been talking to Leicester today.Sharp was at the Stadium talking to Neville whilst East Mids Today were filming there. So many tossers thinking that if they wish hard enough it won't come true... this isn't Disneyland sweetheart, wave Billy bye bye and go sit in the corner.I hope Doncaster do a Leicester and back out after they agree a fee and player is due to sign!Yh yh m8 and when have Leicester done that...are you another jealous Doncaster fan looking 4ward to life in League 1 without ur best player? ahh blessActually we did back out of the St Ledger deal, although for me its more about St Ledger not trusting that the useless manager of ipswich wont be sacked soon. Not Leicesters fault.Are you another jealous Doncaster fan.

Throwing money around will guarantee nothing. Leicester have been down this road before but don't seem to be learning their lesson.Who told u we backed out of St Ledger deal?? read the original post! it has just been put on hold till after Forest game hes still leaving 4 Ipswich after so ACTUALLY no deal has been cancelled...and when have Leicester been down this road b4? apart from waster Sven blowing 15M @ start of the season...we ent had no money b4 that to spend NUMPTY...just coz ur clubs broke, jealousy will get u no where


12 Jan 2012 16:54:09
Question for ED:

Lots of speculation surrounding James Constable with a number of clubs keen to take him away from Oxford United. Swindon had two bids rejected today. What are you hearing your end about Constable?(7)(5)Wait until the weekend is over i think you will see an ongoing negotiation starting on Monday, Oxford dont want to upset the fans and will make out every player has a price and it was too good to turn down and he will go.


12 Jan 2012 20:11:56
Preston's cut backs are due to continue with Coutts off back to P'boro and Hume off to Charlton this transfer window.(7)(7)No there not hume wont move down southHe's also injured and out for another few weeks so the transfer will have to wait untill the summerI cant see Charlton signing any more players (famous last words). 25 is enough in any one season :S


12 Jan 2012 17:13:41
ED- any southampton news? {Ed003's Note - nothing new, sorry }(1)(7)Coventry striker you after going to boro so you,ve missed out again be nobody left on 31st jan start again in championship come augustAllready purchased one striker, another fan worried about how the Saints are doing. Dont worry we will be fineLol, great information there. Boro are a joke. Still finish above you.The Southampton new is the same as it was all summer..... Saints fans posting about how rich their owners are, and all the players who are DEF going to St Marys ( Maynard, Long, Sharp, The cov bloke, etc ), yet they actually sign no one and spend peanuts! Football Manager must have sold VERY well on the South coast!


12 Jan 2012 16:28:28
ANY NEWS ON PNE JOB ED {Ed003's Note - Westley and his backroom staff have agreed a contract, just compo to Stevenage to be sorted,I'd expect the announcement tomorrow }(5)(1)


12 Jan 2012 20:15:55
Santa Cruz to follow Saprky into Loftus Road. Will be recalled from Spain so Man C can get his wages off the books. Low fee (maybe less than £1m) - bargain -he always suits Hughes and works well for his teams.(18)(7)Trust me,the only space he will find is on the treatment table


12 Jan 2012 20:15:52
Sam allardyce keen on bringing in qpr's speedy wideman Wayne routledge and morten gamst pederson who he knows well from his Blackburn days to supply the ammunition for his deadly strikers!(5)(21)Routledge plays for swanseaDo you know anything about football ?I'm a hammers fan and this has to be the most ridiculous story I've heard yet. Routledge plays for Swansea and just because Pederson played for Big Sam before certainly doesnt mean he is willing to drop to the championship for him now.


12 Jan 2012 19:53:09
spurs are going to bid for loic remy in july instead of january so then he will get a easier start in white(8)(9)


12 Jan 2012 19:48:26

The Ass manager said he his 'HOPING' it will be done in the next couple of daysHes been training with Rovers all week and is expected to start against cardiff on saturday, doubt he will join leicester .Well at least we know someone in Doncaster can read, although it seems they might be thick enough to believe everything they see in the Daily Star. Sharp will be a Fox before the weekend.Well ive obviosly got more info thn u.....billy again at King Power Stadium as he was on East Mids Today talkin to Andrew Neville so y dnt u donny fans get used to the FACT u will b in league 1 nxt yr without ur best player?HaHa its took over a week for you to convince him to come, He must be mega impressed with your club-Another person that dunno wot hes chatting bout sharp apparently started negotiations yesterday and who do you support then u chief if ur gonna down Leicester


12 Jan 2012 19:37:54
Scouts at Manchester United are expected to be sent to monitor Rosenborg BK's creative midfield player Markus Henriksen following reccomendation from Utd icon, now Molde head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 19 year old impressed for the Tippeligaen outfit last season scoring 14 goals from central midfield, resulting in his efforts being rewarded with the domestic 'Young Player of the Year' award.

The player's father Trond Henriksen, former player and current assistant manager at the club, has reportedly held talks with his son's agent Andreas Ekker in the aim to move him on to "bigger and better things". There has also been confirmed interest from Serie A side Napoli.

United's interest in the player follows the return of legend Paul Scholes to the injury ravaged squad at the age of 37, some 18 years older than Henriksen.
There has been increasing pressure for Sir Alex to strengthen his midfield and Henriksen, who would be allowed to leave his current club for around £12M, looks to be the name at the top of his list.(6)(11)


12 Jan 2012 19:35:50
Lukas Jutkiwietz to sign for Boro on 2 and a half year deal tomorrow morning, still possible deal for Ishmael Miller of Forest. Boro looking to offload some squad players i.e Tarmo Kink, Andy Halliday, on loan to championship clubs for first team football as only 5 subs allowed, Boro top heavy in this dept.(4)(7)Which boro?There is only one Boro all the others just dont have class!


12 Jan 2012 20:01:16
Rangers defender Dorin Goian is in talks with Bolton, fee in the region of 1mil.(13)(22)No chancePaid 800k for him so no chance.Try 2 million and rangers might take it as said above rangers paid 7-8 hundred thousand ! Hope not true as he's doing very well for rangers


12 Jan 2012 19:58:30
any interesting leicester city transfer rumors in or out(6)(10)


12 Jan 2012 19:57:38
Have it on good information that bates has told Grayson he must sell to buy otherwise it's Gunna be another disappointing transfer window with loans and past it's the only ins and even then he would still have to make cuts

Andiroo(12)(5)But we've already signed three, and are in for St. Ledger, Adam Smith, Kris Boyd and Mark Marshall too. I think Grayson is being allowed to spend for once. This is certainly the most optimistic I have seen Leeds in a transfer window for a while.
wallyWe wouldn't want to spend any of the money Uncle Bates has withdrawn from the club over recent years, would we.


12 Jan 2012 19:57:04
Hey lads I see you are linked with Airdries Ryan Donnelly, 23 goals in 25 games only 20 year old, just wondered if you men have heard anything???(6)(3)Linked with Malky Mackay's youth revolution at CardiffIt was in todays paper that he wants to follow Scott Allen and go to a club in England. He has been watched by a number of Scouts down thereWould imagine Cardiff, great prospect but would he be better serving more time in Scotland, ie Goodwllie, Conway. Learn the trade and full time


12 Jan 2012 19:08:59
David Cotterill who has left Swansea City has joined Leicester City on trial with a view to a permanent move.(8)(13)He is te, what a waste of money he was. And he demands high wages. There is better players out there than him that leicester could attract.I don't get this move what so ever. David Cotterill is 24, and needs to start playing regular football, and isn't going to get it at Leicester.

To Leicester he maybe get a few chances, but he should move to a team, where he will be playing week in week out.

Move down the league to move back up it.


12 Jan 2012 19:07:02
Colchester to sign michael antonio from reading. Either permanant or loan.(4)(4)


12 Jan 2012 19:05:09
Is there any news on Cardiff city as they've been very quite so far(3)(3)

12 Jan 2012 15:24:23
Brentford will sign 5 players in January after the departures of Michael Spillane and Sam Wood.

Also leaving will be

- Karleigh Osborne (Charlton 150,000)
- Ryan Blake (Hampton Loan)
- Mike Grella (Tranmere Loan)
- Pim Balkestein (Dundee United Free)

In will be
- Steven Gillepsie (Colchester United 50,000)
- Harlee Dean (Southampton 15,000)
- Patrick Agyemang (QPR 10,000)
- Jay Tabb (Reading Loan)
- Rhys Murphy (Arsenal Loan)
You certainly won't be getting Rhys Murphy back. He was training with Middlesborough in the summer and decided not to join as Rangers showed an interest where he played behind closed doors against Hamilton. He is a close friend of mine and I know for a fact 3 championship teams have all enquired about his availability.(0)(10)Harlee Dean is one of our best youth players, £15,000 is about £200,000 offAs Steve Gillespie is a mate of mine i can honestly say that after speaking with him he has no idea where this story came from and has no intention of leaving Col U for BrentfordYa ya freinds of himCharlton have brought in 25 players this season, enough already!


12 Jan 2012 18:57:28
A lot of idiots posting on this page. Hooper won't leave Celtic for under 8m. Southampton are useless. Ki may leave if the interest in him is factual, you can't turn down a 7-8m bid for a player easily, although, myself, like most hoops fans, only want to see signings, a centre half and another good striker would be a guaranteed league winner.(10)(15)This coming from someone who has never watched them play 30,000 crowds my friend owned by a billionaire so find your facts out before you down my team .watch your football where there is only four games a season worth watchingThe deal is done so you will eat your words5th richest club in the talks.coyrNot a Celtic or even SPL fan but at last a sensible response about Southampton thinking they can buy anyone just because they,ve got a bit of cash! you are still in the championship and have won nowt as yet !Southampton would beat Celtic. Hooper is not better than what the saints but will improve the overall quality of the squadFunny thing is the Championship is the same standard as the SPL and the only reason hooper gets to play in europe is the fact only 2 teams in the spl share the title every year , its abit boring really and attendance wise you got ground under 10k 15k then 45+k , so its a 2 horse race every single yearrrrrrrrrrrrrr how boring , celtic and rangers would be relegation fodder in the EPL and at a push maybe win a few NPC titles ..30, 00 you say? well, he plays in front 50,000+ every 2nd week as it is.

1 billionaire you say? well, he has 3 at Paradise.

done deal you say? how come only the idiots on here are saying this? (btw, the more you keep saying it, doesnt make it true)

money talks you say? well pay the crazy money that celtic would want for him, instead of piddly wee 5m offers lol!!Like robbie keaneSouthampton would beat celtic pi5h i've heard yet, you lot truly are imbeciles!

there's been far better teams than your deluded lot that have tried and failed miserably.....blackburn, liverpool, man u, barcelona etc etc

when was the last time southampton did something remotely noteworthy? oh yeh, thats right, they havent

yawn....getting bored with this st!Big clubs pay what rightI doubt rangers n celtic would even get out of the championship just cos u beat a big team every now and again dont make u a quality outfit. e.g. palace beating united at old trafford still just an average championship club. u would last the season in epl n would struggle in cahmpionshipI agree with post aboveOh dear, don't be silly. Celtic would easily win the English Championship and would finish mid table first season in EPL. The EPL is not great - look at the clubs in the bottom half. Hardly inspiring names.I honestly doubt u would be the likes of southapmton westham cardiff. i would love to see the league cup extended up to scotland so you could particapte then we would finally see. i 10000000% would never let u in the epl or championship 1 it would be the end of scotish football as we know it hardly any1 cares about it as it is and if the only two clubs that matter dont play in the spl then only about 2 people in 100000000000% would bother watching it and 2) it would hardly be fair on a team who is scrapping away to save the skin in the championship or league 1 to jus be replaced you would have to start from the doc martins league n build ur way in! plus both teams are After a couple of seasons on the tv money given out in the epl, the old firms squads would match any in the leagueBillionaire at celtic never heard the like of it think some1 better take a reality check quick style and not even 1 of them hes shoutin theres 3 typical celtic fan always talkin in telephone numbers lolGet a grip for crying out loud Celtic and rangers would struggle in the championship, Hooper for 8 million...the lad is a mid table chamionship player at best and his value in English terms no more than 1 million max, you cant compare the Scottish prem to the EPLTo the clown above who obviously lives in a little southampton shaped a search on dermot desmond & denis o'brien...2 of the top 10 richest owners in british football no less

complete and utter tool you are, thinking you know what you're talking aboutWhy would celtic or rangers struggle in the championship, or the epl for that matter?

i dont get your logic.

for a start, we would have an equal share of the money, therefore our teams would be improved greatly, and we've already proven to you lot that we can beat you, so jog on with your stupid comments

i would actually suggest that it's the championship teams that would struggle in the spl, for a start you would have to get by on a meagre amount of money, so your crap teams become even crapper

what a stupid stupid argument {Ed001's Note - do you think the money would come in first? You don't get it in advance mate, so you wouldn't have any extra money to spend at first.}Dermot is a billionare.
There is absolutely no doubt Celtic would win the championship. What is this fascination with that league. The old firm quite rightly cherry pick good players as thats what they can AFFORD - matthews, ledley, hooper etc.. Your league is nothing short of mediocre. Not one old firm fan will dispute the spl is poor. However the difference is think of the amount of our squad players, our reserves, our cast offs go to your league. Wake up, smell the coffee. The standard, calibre, history, fanbase will NEVER match the old firm. Celtic have at least 20 internationalists in their squad. Ask yourself this simple question. How many players in your team play for their country?? Isnt that the benchmark for quality? Imbiciles..Dermot Desmond is an Irish businessman and financier. He is estimated to be worth 1.45billion and is ranked by the Sunday Independent as the sixth-richest person in Ireland.

Didnt notice Craig Whyte on the list?

MacNote to editor - dont think previous poster implied or suggested the money would be given up front. the fair point made was that with that cash we would then attract without a shadow of a doubt the best players in that league, in other leagues due to the reputation, history, fanbase. the squad celtic currently have would be enough to take the championship apart just the extra millions you recieve would allow us a few nice additions.. {Ed001's Note - but they wouldn't receive extra money! They would, in fact, lose European money as they would have to earn their place in Europe through the English league if they joined it. I really don't think people think this through. They would be in the same position they are in now, except they would have to pay higher wages, and the competition would be higher level.}{Ed001's Note - do you think the money would come in first? You don't get it in advance mate, so you wouldn't have any extra money to spend at first.}

no Ed, i know that it would come in over a number of years, but the fact is that celtic especially could afford to speculate to accumulate, knowing that the rewards would be forthcoming.

and to pick up on the other guys post about the amount of internationalists in our side, surely that proves that, no matter how mediocre the spl appears to be, the fact remains that a higher calibre of players play with celtic compared to any team in the championship {Ed001's Note - you get most of your players to sign for you on the back of having European competition to play in every year. You would lose that, unless you qualified through the league, if you moved to the English leagues. So you would have to pay better wages or lose your best players, you would be no better off than you are now. In fact it would be more of a struggle because you would be playing teams with more money than you invested in their teams.}Ed your arguement it appears(you seem to be staunchly in the camp the old firm wouldnt be able to compete)is that celtic and rangers wouldnt be able to hold onto their best players.. nonsence, they would smell the premiership and realise they will be there soon. shirt sponsorships, fa cup win bonuses & televised games earn £200k alone, the money is there dont kid yourself.. {Ed001's Note - I am afraid you are kidding yourself. In time I am sure the Old Firm could compete, but it would take time and good management, it won't magically happen like you seem to believe. You won't be any richer than the clubs you are facing, Newcastle get over 50k a week and they aren't rich. What makes you think that Celtic and Rangers will be rich just because they jump ship? Anyway, how little self respect must you have to want to play in another country purely for money? Sad that you think that is all that matters.}13 Jan 2012 00:35:02
Five Celtic shareholders have been listed amongst the 100 richest people in British football- more than any other club.

see, the difference is, us celtic fans can back up our arguments with FACTS! {Ed001's Note - irrelevant, the FFP ruling means it makes no difference any more.} money, gate receipts, merchandise, hospitality and board funds would all skyrocket, which would offset the loss of european football money generated.

europe generates around £7m, £15m if you get a decent run in the champions league or europa final. i think that with the extra revenue of playing in england, celtic could be bringing in more than 40m, and with the current squad we have, if we were to start in the championship, we'd walk it, no question {Ed001's Note - I give up, you clearly have no idea. You think that players wouldn't just want higher wages because of a sniff of glory, delusional at best. Give it up, this argument is ridiculous and it is pointless and it is boring as hell now. It won't happen.}Eds note 001- if the old firm can get 50,000 + in the spl ,can you begin to imagine what level off support they would get in the epl? {Ed001's Note - yes I can, the same as they get in an Old Firm match, no more because the grounds wouldn't hold more. What a pointless thing to say. Or are you going to tell us how they would build bigger grounds and put themselves into huge debt rather than spending money on players?}Ed, i think you're missing the point a bit. it's not about how desperate we are to play in another league, it's responding to silly comments like we would struggle to compete in the championship.

at the end of the day, everyone with a football background knows that the old firm are huge, and with the same silly money thrown at them, they would do more than a bit of role reversal and put, say bolton in the spl with no money, do you think they would struggle? {Ed001's Note - long term the Old Firm would compete, I agree, if they were managed right, but right now they would struggle in the Championship. It is different raising your game for a friendly or European game, then it is to raise your game to face Burnley away. Bolton would struggle anywhere right now, their players are bereft of confidence, but even so, the worst they would come is 3rd in the SPL.}I agree with ed! Over time yes u could compete but straight away you would struggle and I honestly doubt you would pull in 50,000 for Bristol city on a dark cold Wednesday night. I don't think history counts for as much as it used too money talks too much and if there wasn't a guerentteguarantee of European football I think that any footballer would choose a championship side pushing promotions then celtic or rangersThe old firm were huge in the 80s now it's only huge up in Scotland times have moved on! Celtic and rangers are now just history with out a massive investment u will never win anythin note worthy to the footballing world e.g. Champions league or Europa leagueWhy would u be given the right to start in the championship? I honestly think the likes of both Sheffield teams n Carlton would give u a run in league 1!Is this a school playground or what! My clubs bigger than yours! Ner ner ner ner ner!
Bottom line is, no matter how many facts people drudge up about how rich their shareholders are etc, both Celtic and Southampton spend next to nothing in the transfer markets despite the delusion of their supporters!
I don`t support either club, but this rumour site is full of saints fans mouthing off about who they will sign ( Maynard, Rodriguez, Sharp, The Cov striker who I cant spell! etc ) and they NEVER sign any of them!
As for Celtic, there is NO WAY Hooper is worth £8 million! He has only been proven at League 1 level in England and just because he scores in the SPL it doesnt mean he can be a championship striker ( Boyd and Mcdonald case in point ). He would be worth maximum £2.5 million. When Leicester can sign Billy Sharp for 1.85 million why would anyone even look at Hooper!I'm with Ed on this one Old Firm would not be able to compete in the EPL. Is it just me but are all the Celtic fans contradicting themselves? Your saying with all the money you would have from the EPL you would be able to pay higher wages and spend more on better players but yet your saying you have 5 of the 100 richest owner in British football. So in my opinion money isnt a factor as you are (rich)!! Really as Ed has stated without the lure of European Football they would struggle to attract the players to be competitive.Celtic and Rangers would survive in the epl, epl only has 6 teams the rest are terrible!Ed 001's without doubt Celtic and Rangers would increase the size of there grounds ,as i said 50,000 + against spl teams would mean another 20- 25,000 per home game in the championship never mind the epl,there would be huge funds from sponsorship as well to follow . {Ed001's Note - how would they pay for the increase in stadium size? With a huge mortgage like Arsenal, meaning they won't have anything to spend on players? Give it a rest, it won't happen and they wouldn't just increase the size of the ground like that.}Incorrect. The Old Firm clubs would struggle to finish above the likes of Fulham, Stoke, Everton and Villa. I think they'd manage decent season in the Championship but there'd be no guarantee of promotion IMO.I think you're all missing the point completely. NOONE SOUTH OF THE BORDER GIVES A MONKEY'S LEFT TESTIE ABOUT SCOTTISH FOOTBALL!To the above poster.

It seems a lot of people have opinions about Scottish football.

Celtic fans are only on here arguing because people are suggesting that our players could be snapped up for knock down prices.

Ed I agree that the FFP rules makes how rich the owners are irrelevant but when they do come in the advantage will be with the best supported teams who can fill their stadiums, i.e. 60,000+ capacity Parkhead. (if we can get 50,000+ for the likes of Dunfermline we can sure as hell get it for Bristol City!). Celtic are officially the 9th best supported team in Europe by the way.

Hooper has already proved he can cut it in the championship. We signed him from Scunthorpe in the Championship when he had scored a bucket load of goals, despite missing a few months of the season he only just missed out on being top scorer (to Nicky Maynard?) for a relegation battling team. For £2.5M.

I honestly believe Celtic would win the championship, there are several Premiership class players in the Celtic team. Now the seem to have figured out how to play as a team I would say this is probably the best Celtic team since the Martin O'Neil days.

MacTo the above poster,you are 100% correct mate its a pity those far removed from reality cant see it.No one is knocking the epl even although its just about english in name only, its big clubs are foreign owned the players are for all corners of the globe as are the managers and its most famous team is due to 3 Scotsmen , Busby,Docherty and Ferguson.Celtic and rangers would both be a yoyo team like wba, birmingham etc up one year, down the next, and assuming he is not a money grabber, i imagine hooper would much rather play in the npc because lets be honest, its more prestigious to be able to play in england where it is renowned to have the best leagues in the world. whilst i also agree that there is a definite division between the top 6 in the epl, the other teams are getting better... didnt it used to be a top 4?
southampton fans may be slightly delusional at times, but so are celtic fans who reckon they would bring in more fans against the lower teams like wigan, wba and blackburn etc. stop whining because you MIGHT lose a good player as has happened to southampton every year almost and rarely happens to celtic... (when was the last big signing to come from celtic)

southampton in:

Tadanari Lee work permit has been permited

Gary Hooper and Kris commons to join for 8mil plus Jason puncheon

also expect joe lewis to sign for around 1.25mil(20)(18)Where are southhampton getting this money from yeah they got 13 mil from chamberlain but that was all paid for there debts.No chance,i am a big saints fan and this is wishful thinking ,always leave everything too late and will end up with rubbish.There is no way Hooper will be allowed to leave in January and i don't think he would join a Championship club.

I'm not having a go at Southampton or their ambition, they probably be EPL next season, but this is not going to happen just now. Celtic are in a more stable financial position than most clubs in the UK and can choose when and if they sell any assets.I'm not sure saints will sign Hooper, he is a quality player but I can't see him joining us with the way Celtic are playing. However we do have money, the sale of AOC did raise 12mil and even if that did go towards paying off debts then we still have money as we are, I think, the 5th or 6th richest club in England, meaning we do have money but we won't buy everyone!Puncheon not good enough and is not Celtic class
, Hooper will be signing a contract extension and will remain a Celtic player for a few seasons yetSaints are the 5th richest club in britain so a few mill is nowt but anyway we don't want hooper there's a lot better players than him we could try to getSaints owners are multi multi billionairesAs a Saints fan I can't really see Hooper joining us - depsite the Nigel Adkins connection and his desire for a place in the England side. If we go up this summer (and that's a big if given our recent form) then its a different matter. Also I can't see Saints spending the kind of money Celtic want for him at the moment. Saints are owned by the Liebherr family who are worth about £2.5 billion by all accounts - but since Marcus Liebherr's death the family seem to have lost interest. If we do go up I guess they will sell the club at a profit in the summer - if not they will sell it at break even instead as they only paid £15 million for the club. Saints do have money from selling Oxlade-Chamberlain but they will have to spend it wisely as that is all they've got. By all accounts they we're running at a loss last season but have already used some of the Oxlade-Chamberlain money to pay off any debt they had as a result.Stop being so sensible. you are not welcome on here!Saints have little debt, our existing debt was paid off when Markus Liebherr bought the club back in 2009. We've spent about £7m in transfers over the last 2 seasons, and posted losses of about £2.4m last season and £5m the season before. There is money available that was left to the club by Markus after his death, but we are currently operating pretty well financially as a club. Few clubs post profits at the end of a financial year, and we haven't accrued much real debt over the last few years.

As for Hooper, there is a connection as Nige managed him at Scunny. Whether Celtic will be willing to sell him or not is another matter entirely. They bought him for £2.4m, so I think they would want at least double that before they started to consider the offer. Neil Lennon is looking at strikers as a priority for this window now, they've been linked with everyone from Jordan Rhodes to Kevin Davies so far, so this could hint at some movement for Hooper. Nige said in an interview after the Coventry game that we could be making a major signing, and this could well be it.

Whether the move will come off is another matter really, but it's not unfeasible.99% of football clubs run at a loss FACT Saints are no different, Saints have ONE of the best youth academy in the UK which genarates income, so it is sensible to pay off any debt that might arrise.
We have been in the ST before and payed a massive price nearly loosing the club.

Saints wont pay silly money for a player which is why we pulled out of the Sharp deal in the summer, so forget the hooper deal.

To all the Celtic fans that seem to think he wont leave at all, you are all deluded, there is no loyalty shown these days from both player and club, if the money is right then he will leave, if the club is Man U, Saints or Crewe.

As for the league i have just looked at the SPL and there is already a 17 point gap between 2 and 3, tells you all you need to know really, as one of the top two fans it must be boreing, not saying the Championship top teams are better than the SPl top teams, there aint no diffrence in my opinion. The leagues however are miles apart The championship is far more closer and competitve.

As for European football, you will get that every year because of the weakness of the SPL, love to see how the clubs would cope with no European football at all.Saints are the 5th richest club in britain.

Like man city and many other clubs who make claims like this it is the owners who are stinking rich not the clubs.

Are people just jealous that most good, young, English players have a connection to Leeds, or are they just in denial? I suppose it is true though that he might want to join a low-end Premier League side.

West brom are looking to bring in another three players this January transfer window. I believe that Chris wood going to Bristol city on loan is part of the deal that involves nicky maynard going the other way for £2.5 million. It's just that a transfer takes longer to process than a loan so expect maynard to be at the Hawthorns tomorrow morning discussing personal terms, putting pen to paper and being presented at a press conference tomorrow afternoon
Also, Adam johnson is another potential target from fulham and so is Craig Gardner of Sunderland. However, if west brom were to pursue these players they would both have to be cash plus player Deals but west brom do not want to do that. Other names to be mentioned are Christian Rodriguez, apono, Patrick helmes and Liam Lawrence(7)(12)Andy johnson i guess u meanYou have no chance with Craig Gardner hes going no where

George Elokobi to join Stoke before the window closes

Can he hump the ball the length of the field?

He has a hell of a long throw

Nah, 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.

You wouldnt want him

We'd only want him if Fergie decides to buy back Shawcross (£10-£12m)(10)(8)Its okay were looking at bigger and better players were in Europe remember.Your qualified for europe by losing a f.a. cup final :s i remeber millwall doing the same!

Dream on. Boro will probably be paying £750k. When Leicester are signing a real scoring striker for £1.85 million in Billy Sharp, why would anyone pay more for a player who can't score in a relegation team ?A striker who doesn't score ? hes scored 9 this season.. thats more than any of the boro's current strikers ( mcdonald is your best & hes on 7! ) and leicester offered 3.5 mill for sharp.. so thats wrong on both fronts then! oh & the fact that he IS scoring in a relegation team is exactly the reason why there is so much intrest in him.. you know the football is played with a round ball right ?

Wolves to announce sale of Kevin Doyle on Monday. Kenwynne Jones signed with the money. Also Newcastle have bid £3.5m for Christophe Berra. Possibility of either Anton Ferdinand or Jonny Evans on loan to take his place. You heard it here first. Mark my words on these.

Wolfman.(14)(15)Mince, evans is out for the seasonWho is Doyle going to ?I dunnoWhy would anybody in their right minds buy Berra?Ferdinand signed for qpr in summer he woudnt go on loan and load of CRAP) about berra worth more like 350,000I know Doyle has had a lean time of it lately
but I would love to see him up the Baggies
up front with Long.Never gonna happen though.Sunderland are keen on DoyleDoyle wont be going newhere just signed a new deal. thats prob why his not playing that well but still has alot to offer.I don't know we signed Christophe for £2,600,000 and he's certainly worth more than that now. Can't see us selling Doyle although this season he's been useless, but I think he can get a striker lined up (Nicky Maynard for example) we'll let Sylvan E-Fires Blanks go to the Championship.Bullshidd,

Berra is worth more than that, easily our best outfield player this season with Fletcher.

NO, NO, NO to the rest.WTF... Berra aint worth 1 million letalon near on 4... bcks! And... Anton Ferdinand isn't at Sunderland anymore! he signed for QPR in summer haha love the B'llsh't you hear on here!

Lennon says only silly money will be required, and that Hooper is wanting to sign extension to current contract
also why would Hooper take a step backwards in his career, if he leaves it will be to an EPL club for around 10 millNot far from the mark on that one !
A.R.TI think i would rather be a deluded saints fan with all the money we have ,than a deluded skate with no money in the bank..
no prospects....
a slapstick ground......
and league 1 football looming after ur points deduction.......
LOLI like celtic,but as far as television concerned and the rest of the world ,you may as well be in the icelandic leagueAre you some sort of person Why would he leave for a club who's bubble has burst. You will be out of the top 3 by the end of this weeks fixtures then only 1 way for you DOWNThere is no way the southampton owners would sanction that kind of reckless spending, they are much more sensible than that.

David Cotterill, who has been released by Swansea, will be in talks with Watford tomorrow.

Huddersfield and West Ham have agreed
a fee of £5m for Jordan Rhodes with salary
believed to be £35k a week the only sticking point is add ons. Huddersfield are
expected to use the money to pursue interested in
Jamie Vardy amongst others for a final push
for promotion. Lee CLark has submitted a
list of players he wants when the Jordan Rhodes deal goes through, from a relaible source(12)(17)Not good enough for West Ham and West Ham are not great we know thatLol he is probably on less than 10k so they would only need to offer £15kHe won't go to west ham he'll go to NorwichYor "reliable source" is not very reliable,cos they are WRONG. HUDDS wont sell JORD that cheap.Rhodes not yet proven, but already well above West Ham standardHaha.. A league 1 striker who's worth more than £5mill, dont think so mate, you need to open your eyes to the real world. And too good for West Ham, dont make me laugh. West Ham might not be the best at the minute but were still light years ahead of anything you will EVER achieve, fact. So kiss Rhodes goodbye, along with promotion, because even if he doesn't come to West Ham now, he'll be off somewhere in the summer, leaving you to rot in league one. Enjoy.Well he doesn't sound like a 'appy 'ammer!

West Ham not the best at the minute, were they ever? Isn't there highest ever top tier place 3rd?

Of course Jordan will leave, he will want Premiership sooner than later, and because of that it will be good business for the Town.

HTFC - THE 'Town', first top tier champions three times in a row.

Lee is back in the UK and the OS will officially release the news at 5pm.

In regard to the Hooper saga we put in an improved offer yesterday which was pegged back by Celtic, ive heard between £5.5-6.5 million. It seems that with middlesborough now the front runners for Lukas Jutkiewicz that Southampton will rekindle their interest in Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez.

Expect a winger from the SPL to sign within the next few days. A source from inside the club has told me at least one will sign after Puncheon leaves. We have rejected a bid from Blackpool this week. He hasn't told me specifically bur hinted the potential signing will be Commons from Celtic or Driver from hearts.

Don't expect much else after these as Adkins isn't the sort of manager to sign players left right and centre.

Hi ED, any news on the Riordan to Killie move? seems to be looking positive although I have heard rumours of a last minute swoop from turkey? {Ed001's Note - all I know is they were in talks over a contract.}(3)(4)Riordan can only play in the nation for four months out the year,due to tax reason.And he has used up a month being back in the country.Meaning Kimarnock would need to stump up money to keep him here,money that they dont have.And your right he has a Turkish team after him.He will probably sign for then,so he can keep his tax dodge.Fair play to the lad to.I would not want to pay money on tax,if I could avoid it.Ally

News from north of the border. Update on Scottish Internationals on the move.

Jordan Rhodes to Manchester UTD and to be loaned back to Huddersfield for the remainder of the season. Fee agree for £4 million plus a potential further payment of £1.5 million dependent on appearances over two years.

Stephen Fletcher will not be moving after all in January. This will change come July and Liverpool and Aston Villa are the front runners for his signature.

Kris Boyd will this week sign a 1 and a half year deal with Rangers. Stating that there was only one club he wants to play for.

Allan McGregor will be sold to QPR for around £5 million. and Finally Chris Burke will be sold to Bolton on Thursday next week.

Regards J(7)(28)Utter liesHe wont go for any less than 8 mil and i cant see any club paying that sort of money and then loaning him back risking injuriesRangers have had £7 million bids tabled for McGregor before,and turned them away.So there is no chance,we will be letting him go for £5 million.When he is Scotland number one.And Hearts got £9 million for Craig Gordon.So dream on with that one.And Bolton could have got Burke for free,at the start of the year.If they wanted him,and they never did.Be shocked if they did now.AllyWhat a load of rubbish this is.RHODES will not be goin to MAN U, he's not there kind of player, rite age just wrong level of footballNo chance mcgregor will be sold and esp for 5m more like 10m

Charlton are in talks with Oxford hitman James Constable. Constable has been superb for United since joining Shrewsbury in 2009, and has a number of admirers. It is thought a bid of around £270,000 was accepted late last night.(1)(12)Not so sure about this one - Charlton look set to secure Danny Haynes of Barnsley, so would Constable be necessary? Haynes was also targeted by Millwall, and as a result Josh McQuoid's season long loan move back to AFC Bournemouth has been suspended until Kenny Jackett is happy with his attacking options.

Zigic stated in the summer he would like a move away from St Andrews but has recently been scoring goals for the Championship outfit and seems happy. The Serbia captain is wanted by his homeland club, of where Zigic started making a name for himself. A return could be on the cards if a fee can be agreed.(14)(8)Sorry, i dont believe this. its true he might not have been as happy as he wouldve liked here, but at the start of the season he said he remained faithful to blues and at the very least wanted to see the season through with us. if he can pick up a goal or two every other game, i think he'll wanna stay with us for another season if we get promoted.

Preston North End have taken released Leeds midfielder Will Hatfield on a month rolling contract.

Hatfield hasn't lived up to expectations and will try his luck in League 1.(6)(4)No they av notSo NOT the next big thing to come out of West Yorkshire then?Well, the next big things to come out of Yorkshire play for Leeds (Jonny Howson and Tom Lees), Barnsley (Danny Butterfield), Sheffield United (Harry Maguire and Lowton) and Hull (Tom Cairney). Hatfield will more likely sign for Doncaster; the club where all Leeds' rejects end up.
wallyI think he should of got a chance in the 1st team like Thompson seen as we have no midfielders other than Clayton available.

Charlie Taylor is the next best thing out of Leeds, he signed a 3 year deal and looks like he may have a good future at the club

Brighton and Hove Albion, 16:09, January 12, 2012
Brighton boss Gus Poyet has dismissed reports that Swansea and Norwich have made approaches for midfielder Liam Bridcutt.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Amex Stadium but Poyet described the reports as nothing more than "rumours".
Speaking to the club's official website, Poyet said: "The only way I know about this speculation about Liam Bridcutt is because my son told me.
"He likes to read things [on the internet] and he told me but there is nothing there though. There were rumours about Dunky (Lewis Dunk) in December and now it's Liam.
"There is nothing we can do about that but at the same time we will not panic. We'll remain calm and deal with it in the most professional manner."The fact that poyet has commented at all on this ,means there is probably some truth in the interest. history tells us these things, one to watch i think

There is seemingly a lot of inaccurate speculation on this site, but this really isn't. I can't say exactly who my source is, but they are completely reliable and very close to 1 interested party.

Fulham are willing to let Andy Johnson go in January, and there has been 2 prem clubs who have shown an interest, 1 london based and 1 up north.

But AJ has stated his heart is set on an emotional return to Crystal Palace and regular first team football if the clubs and player can agree terms. Palace have been trying very hard to put together a deal to bring him back to Selhurst.

I was informed Palace inquired about offering a player called Murrey as a make weight part of the deal but Fulham insist upon a cash only permanent deal.(6)(9)These silly rumours need to STOP! Andrew Johnson will never be returning to Crystal Palace F.C and CPFC2010(4 Owners) will not go against what they are doing! We simply cannot afford Andrew Johnson.Martin Jol said on sky sports news that he wants to keep him

De Jong is only 21 years old but already has a one in two goal ratio for the Dutch side after making 56 appearances.(8)(21)Newcastle have no money.I will admit i no nothing about Lyons financial situation or its transfer policy. But i cant state with every confidence it will be a cold day in hell before Mike Ashley shells out 20m for a player... no chance.Lyon are skint. Even if Newcastke had 50 mil to spend, they would not spend 20mil on a playerI reckon he'll move to Liverpool in the summer... if he continues his current form, of course.

The 24-year-old is believed to be undergoing a medical at Hillsborough ahead of securing his switch to South Yorkshire.

Owls boss Gary Megson is keen to bolster his attacking options as he looks maintain his side's bid for promotion and sees Jones as a key addition to his side.(6)(5)Given up on Marshall then?

He'll be a big target for many clubs in summerQpr! he will only go to a bigger club city,man u, chelsea, arsenal,psgIm a westham fan. he has scored more than rooney i see know clubs offering 7mil at least 15 to 20milNo chance at £7m, probably go to a bigger club also. £7m would buy Kenwyne Jones at best!Ba release clause is less than 10m, it doesn't matter if he is worth 15m+ because if a club offer the release clause amount which is about 7m then he can talk to them, so stop quoting he will go for 15m+Yeh he can talk to clubs but why would he go to such a small club like QPR when he could probs go to man u or as i think will happen newcastle will give him a new contract when he gets back from the acon to stop the speculation and ba has already said he wants to stay.

Chelsea will today launch a huge bid to sunderland for there superstar stephane sessegenon. The offer will be £15m plus Paulo Ferriera(9)(32)Haha, sunderland will tell chelsea to go home and actually put in a better offer than thatMaybe not, thats a 9 million profit plus a left sided defender which is needed there, Sess is unsettled and although a good player his final touch isnt greatSess isnt unsettled as says the player himself, and no need for a left sider after the emergence of James McCleanThis is total fodder. Sess is happy on Wearside (fact) its his family who have struggled to settle, hence the fact that they've spent alot of there time in France. Not that we'd want him but do you think Ferreria's family would want to live in the North east? He's a ponce!We sunderland as a club dont need to sell players. we have no debt. sess worth more than 15m on current market. as for ferriera we dont need him. have better at the clubAnd do you not think sess would want to be where his family are ? and we do need a left sided player in defence yes we have a midfielder now but its obvious we need a left back and a striker !Ferreira is a right backSunderland are a selling club e.g 24m for Bent.

He isn't worth £5m!We sold bent 18 months ago because he handed in transfer request we are not in debtI would take that offer deffo,& im a safc season ticket holderSess is happy on Wearside and if that changes, they will agree to play at least until the end of the season.. he is happy to play regular football and why leave now, after magnificent beginning to O'Neill era.. he will not be sold, at least not during January..If they offered 25m sunderland should consider but why would sess go to london when his family can't settle in england? more thought needed, if he goes it will be back to france and it will be in the summer

liverpool deciding wether to make a bid for matt phillips or matt jarvis(16)(15)You would think Liverpool would know which Matt they are after.Dont make me laugh. they just about good enough 4 down the road, but def not here, try again blue noseLiverpool have already bid for both and have had both offers rejectedPhilips is a strong poss at end of season as bpool and lpool have now got good connections, think someone will go in the opposite direction if it works.

Murray back to Brighton ? Much as we'd like to have him there's no way he'd come back. He's on more money and a longer contract, this is just another spurious and groundless rumour.(5)(6)


12 Jan 2012 11:49:00
Once again, cahill will not be leaving everton. leave it out stoke fans.

Once again, Cahill is so overrated and we should be looking at better players anyway don't see what all the fuss is about? Apart from the purist getting their knickers in a twist because 'poor old Stoke' can actually compete for the signatures of these sort of players.(11)(6)Ill drive him to Stoke myself. if he isnt scoring(which he hasnt done for along time now) he is useless."poor old stoke" aren't a good team! hahaWhat do Stoke want with a footballer anyway ?Don't Everton need to sell.... Stoke have the money for an old player looks like a good move. Won't happen though..... think Stoke looking for more youthful midfielders (if any)

Jordan Rhodes very interested in moving to
hammers. West ham have had a bid accepted by
Huddersfiled however they want more cash
up front and add ons need to be discussed.
Jimmy Kebe also expected to join hammers
soon once personal termas are agreed. Fred
Picquionne interesting Wolves and may be alloowed
to leave for the right price(22)(20)Kebe and Rhodes are both ambitious and have real potential. They'll both go to a Premiership team for proper career development, rather than months on the physio's table at West HamAll u hammers fans finally need to realise rhodes is bigger than you....So in what way does this mean a bid is accepted. how can it be accepted if they need to agree add ons (part of the bid) and they want more upfront?Wolves dont want him1> West Ham are a huge club and even though Jordan Rhodes is a fantastic player, he is certainly not bigger than a club

2> West Ham have developed some of the greatest players in the prem, fact

3> If your going to comment try and engage your brain before you write such nonsenseWovles can have him for free hes been a let this season

Tottenham are very keen on signing Crystal Palace attacker Wilfred Zaha. The young forward is being courted by a number of Premier League sides and it is expected Harry Redknapp will make a £8 million bid for the England under 19 striker.(13)(17)Unlikely cause both manchster clubs and chelsea are after him as managers want players for the futureEm.. i'm pretty sure when asked Redknapp said 'i've never even heard of him' so why would he waste £8m on a player he hasn't even watched? you can get some classy players abroad for that sort of money...

Once Pompey's new owners are in place, which should be by the end of next week, Michael Appleton will complete the following transfers.

Luciano Becchio (Leeds) 1.2 million
Joe Mattock (WBA) Loan end of season
Simon Cox (WBA) 2 million
Matt Phillips (Blackpool) 1.8 million
Gary O'Neil (West Ham) 1.5 million
Also a rumour that club have spoken to Chelsea about a loan for one of there fringe players but to be honest i have been hearing that from when we played them in a pre season freindly, so not to sure about it.

Leaving Portsmouth

Liam Lawrence (WBA/Fullham?)
Tal Ben-Haim
Hermann Hreidarsson
Kanu(6)(37)What about the 10 points when you getting them?Lol, thank you for the daily doce of laughter...firstly, its looking slim that you will have an owner by the end of the month, let alone this week. Also, making ALL those signings is ridiculous, your in this position because everytime you get an owner you splash cash. No way you could go and make these signings, especially with so low estimations. For example, M Phillips would be much much more than that..Why would we get 10 points, we have done nothing wrong, do your research mate.If this Portsmouth fan listens very carefully....he can hear people laughing at him all over the UK.Becchio is 1 year into a 4 year deal 1.5 million wouldn't sign his bootsWho's tax is not going to get paid to be able to buy any players.....the nation looses again to keep this ship from sinking.who has sent someone a brown envelope for xmasYou will be lucky to get away with just a ten point deduction , look at leeds that time wasnt it 17 and you as a club are a disgrace the way its been run for the last few years !What you lot going on about, our parent company Convers Sports Initiatives went into admin, and has no direct connection to the club.

The club runs on it own accord, which is why no points have been deducted and will not be deducted. I am hearing new owner will be in place by the end of next week.

As for signing i have not heard any news other then Mattock and Thorne which is been well documented anyway.

As a Pompey fan it feels different this time, the good time are definetly back and i feel mistakes would of been learnt.

PUP PPUShould b more than 10 points that's what happened at Leeds. If u escape with no points deduction the u would b the most hated team on the planet and Leeds Luton saints bournemouth could all go 2 court against the football league. PFC should have a transfer embargo until ALL debts r paid off not just 1p in the £!!!Oneil is a good player but id say 2milHa ha ha ha ha ha, skate muppet!Ian Holloway has said that he would only consider an offer for M. Phillips if it was from one on the top six teams in the Premier league and there are rumours that some teams have bid up to 3 mil so 1.8 is too low let alone the fact it is Pompey

Nicola Cortese currently finalising a deal to bring Nathaniel Clyne to St Marys. Danny Butterfield or Frazer Richardson offered as part of the deal.(3)(14)You talk rubbishFrazer Richardson ? don't think so he has been great for us so far this season ...Richardson wouldnt be offered as part of the deal. He's been class this season, being a huge part in creating goals and chances.Seriously? Are you watching the same player!? Butterfield creates more chances with better quality crosses!Highest number of assists in The Chamionship? That's right, Richardson with 9. Button it.Agree Frazer Rischardson has been one of our best players this season.Also Butterfield has been solid in the few games he has played.Saints fans often talk rubbish im a saints myself let adkins to the work you lot shh in adkins we trust

Albert Adomah of Bristol City seen as the final piece of the jigsaw for Nigel Adkin's Saints team. Expect the signing to be unveiled alongside Tadanari Lee before the next home game against Forest.(7)(20)IF Bristol City were prepared to sell Albert Adomah they would demand a fee in excess of that they turned down from Leicester for Maynard. The board are also aware that by cashing in on Albert it would seriously affect the number of season tickets they would expect to sell, especially the "early Bird" offers that will start next month. I'm not saying that S'ton couldn't afford the asking price and I accept that they will most likely gain promotion but given the fact we will lose one iconic player either this month or at the end of the season the board are unlikely to want to upset the fans too much by selling another icon who has 30 months left on his contract. Adkins may see Albert as his final puzzle piece but wanting a player and getting him are 2 different things unless you are prepared to splash mega cash.I would like this to be true, but we won't pay what BC wantIt will cost you a fair bit to get him? can't you take maynard insteadSaints wont get him the palyer himself will be looking for a prem club. The fan that said cashing in on him would seriously affect the sell of season tickets, sorry to say so will getting relagated to league 1, it looks like you are going to loose Maynard on a free in the summer. I think if the right money was offered i think the club would sell in an instant and if they both go in this window i think you are in serious trouble.It would be a bit weird if Nigel Adkins unveiled two new sigings at the Forest game. Seeing as it's at The City Ground.How much would kenny miller cost.rather get himWe turned down 6 million for maynard in aug and thats for a player with 12 months on his contract,
How much do you think will turn our heads for a player who's contracted until 2015As a Scunthorpe united supporter Soton fans must get used to Adkins not knowing a good player when he sees one.He will buy players he has worked with as a physio otherwise his buys will be rubbish

EVERTON have excepted 8.5m for tim cahill from STOKE CITY . {Ed025's Note - if he will be to a footballing club..(6)(25)Wheres the like button! XDIf he is available and at that price, Fergie would be signing him.WE ARE HIGHER UP THE LEAGUE THAN EVERTONIts spelt "accepted". does prove that the fans posting this stupid rumour dont have a clue.If any players goes to any club its because they offer him more money and a longer contract we all no this ..everton need 20m to stop the bank from taking action sell sell sell evertonCahill will not go to stoke . ever.Congratulations Ed025. Brilliant.Stoke are beginning to get the ball down and play, i think Ed025 you're being a little harsh, maybe they fancy a change? i don't see why but they have begun to pass it around abit then houth it up the pitch, working wonders, but it'll only ever get them 7th or 8th highest...Hey Ed- there is enough idiots putting silly remarks on here without you putting yours ! Show respect for what Stoke have achieved in the last 4 years. You probably support Everton ! {Ed001's Note - he does, no one else still thinks Everton play good football under Moyes!}


12 Jan 2012 10:29:30
Can anyone tell me how Kompanys tackle warranted a red card but Glenn Johnsons last night didn't even get a free kick?(16)(7)Yeah, Rooney wasn't there to help the ref make his decision last night!Refs are inconsistent which is why fans, managers etc get angry with them. The johnson challenge to me was like the de jong tackle vs Man Utd which also went unpunished as there was hardly no run towards the attacker whereas kompany ran towards nani and i believe it was rooney who got him sent off

I dont think any of them were reds to be honest and the johnson incident happened near the end of the game so i doubt it would have made a difference

The Dark KnightI agree with you that Kompany should not of been sent of but i do think they were different. Johnston all though he jumped with 2 feet he was in front of the player and got to the ball first and did not come through the player after winning the ball. Kompany was face on and yes he did get the ball but went through the player with his mementon. Dont get me wrong i am not defending Johnston nor am i a Liverpool fan its just my opinion. All the ref had to do was look at Nani's reaction, how refreshing was it to see a foreign player that in the past would of rolled around for 10 minutes until the player was Carded, instead he got straight up and got on with it, i think the ref would of also got on with it if it was not for Rooney having a moan. Also one more thing i have no interest in any club involved, infact my club are in the Championship. I grew up when Dalglish was a player and a fantastic on at that but when did he become such a PK not just the takle but the way he is conducting himself as a person in general. Liverpool Fc has always been a well respected club but his attitude is slowly changing that.Glen johnsons tackle was a proper tackle! all these city players on £150,000 a week are all babies! MAN UP! the fans of liverpool love to see tackles like that, especially me!Typical refs inconsistant as wolvesHavnt you lot heard about the new Ref Liverpool signed in this window?I personally think neither of the tackles deserve red cards. I understand the whole dangerous tackles thing, but football is soon going to be though of as a non-contact sport. If it's a strong, fair challenge in which they get the ball, then I personally do not think it warrants a red card. But saying this, in the rules in football at the moment, Johnson's was a red card, and I still don't think Kompany's was.


12 Jan 2012 10:26:15
You Norwich boys n girls ! make the most of it, your doing well, you have a decent manager who will be poached by a big club if he keeps you up and then it will be back to normal for you ! looking at what might have been !(13)(11)If, or more likely when, Lambert moves to one of the top 6 we have the right people in charge at Norwich (McNally and Bowkett) to find and appoint the next Paul Lambert. They are first and foremost Football people, which a strong and proven business sense. We are not run like the Norwich of old (or Ipswich of today) and will appoint someone capable of carrying on the remarkable work that Lambert has begun.I don't know who you support but, Norwich are playing good football, sit 9th in the Premiership, having a good time & if we don't stay up - we will have given it our best shot.

So all i'm saying is OTBC!Suffolk dope talking s tDecent Manager, decent man, it will be some time before Lambert makes a move anywhere else. Let Norwich enjoy their sucesses in the Premiership and I'm not even a fan.So says a member of the London Overspill who's soon to be League 1 club reside at Portaloo Road.Get in the real world, if you achieve sucess at a small club which in the mix of things you are, the big boys take notice and Lambert and any players who do well will go ! Money talks !!Norwich are just a stepping stone for Lambert.Lambert loves it at Norwich, and i do not think he will leave until he thinks Norwich are set to stay in the Premier League for a long time. Obviously, if one of the top 6 comes in for him, then he may well leave. But at the end of the day, we have good owners, who will search around, and not rush into any decisions when we do need a new manager, and will only sign someone who is right for the job. I believe we can keep our club's premier league status for a long time to come. Just another Ipswich fan who cannot accept we are better than them. (just waiting for the history comments from most of the Ipswich fans that live in the past now)Gerard, has got one hell of a nerve, say city tryed to get johnson sent of, or has he fogoted that lovely bit of acting that go rodwell sent off, the only ones guilty of hypocrisy are liverpool, as per usual.

How many points will the football
league finally dock portsmouth football
club today ? im going for at least 15
maybe more after whats happened to
previous clubs in the past ie leeds ,
southampton , and poor old luton town(19)(6)Why are they getting it today?None. The club isn't in administration, the parent company is. The parent company had lots of things it was attached to and Pompey were only a small part of it. Southampton were docked 10 points because it's parent company went into admin too, but the difference was that the parent company was 100% to do with Southampton FCPortsmouth are not in administration their owners are, Androniku came out and said we would not be docked points and the football league agreed so none?


12 Jan 2012 10:21:34
Southampton Football Club;
we all know that were getting promoted
no matter what this season...
But, we need to boost our squad options
by signing;
A centre back - Berra? Kilgallon?
Bamba? Bramble? Someone experienced.
A Playmaker - Lewis Mcgugan?
Jason Koumas? Graeme Dorrans?
A winger - Andrew Driver?
Kris Commons? Wilfred Zaha?
A striker? Tadanari Lee (OBVIOUSLY)
Gary Hooper? Jordan Rhodes?(12)(28)Sorry, but im a saints fan, and THAT is ambitious. No way we could attract 70% of them....Rhodes is prem standard, so would go there if he was even leaving at all, which i think he wont, and im glad. He will do well to stay and grow at huddersfield (who are a pretty good team), Zaha..just lol, top half prem team easily. But i like the ambition :PI'm a saints fan but that won't happen Lee-yes Hooper-possible Rhodes-wtf !I thought there was a league and the top 2 teams went up then there were playoffs did not realise you guys got auto promotion.
Surely I'm not the only one getting annoyed with stupid southhampton fans thinking they are the best team in the world because they had a good start to the seasonTchoyi is not a playmaker, nobody knows what he is, not even himself. He's definitely a handful!We do not no that we are going up. long way ta go yet m8No chance of u getting hooper at all! And there still half a season to go so u could still muck up! even though i have u backed to get promoted from the start.Are people really that gulable, do fans not think maybe a smelly skate posted this to try and get a reaction which has clearly worked. First of all no real propper Saints fan thinks we are already promoted, the realistic fan knows there is still half the season to go and it is going to be gard to stay in top six let alone win the league, Adkins is after certain players but it is very rare since he has been at the club for him to reveal any of his targets until the deal has been done. He has made it clear we are after a striker which looks like he has got in Lee, and maybe a centre back. So unless he says otherwise i would imagine thats it for this window.No chance with HOOPERBoth killgallon and berra are playing first team PREMIER LEAGUE football atm no way would they go to soton

Alan Smith rumoured to take a wage cut and rejoin Leeds on a 1 year deal(21)(14)The Leeds fans I know hate Alan Smith, will they forget about hime going to their 'rivals' United?
Hope he goes to Leeds, I will be able to take the pss!1yr deal if taking a decent pay cut I'd say yes to that but then I'm one of the crazy ones on here who's always asking whats happening with Smith lolNot a leeds fan but i have heard that the
Smith you want to sign is,nt alan but a young full back from spurs called adamSmithy will only play with a red shirt on, as he LOVES Leeds!The guy above is right, the Smith we're signing is Tottenham's Adam, and just as well, because he can play right-back. Though I would personally welcome Smudger back, I'm sick of us signing has-beens on short deals. If we can secure O'Dea and Delph on loan, perhaps with a few bids here and there for strikers, then that will be a good January for Leeds. However, many of these moves needed to have been made over the summer.
Oh, and if we sign Kris Boyd, I will die. He is basically Beckford. We need another lazy, unfit striker like we need a hole in Snoddy's head.

West HamWatched the game with 2 Liverpool fans last night. I think Carroll's locks are sexy, I would give him one myself like. I'd give myself a groin injury spending an hour with him.Fair play all this hype about Rhoades, He plays in league one for fk sake 10mil to a prem club my ass. Put him up against world class defenders and tell me will he bang them in just as easy I don't think so. Put a 10mil striker from the prem in league one and watch him score for fun. I've seen sunday football teams player better than half the teams in league 1.This is true i saw him at the stadium today

Cardiff are to bid for Chris Wood once his loan at Birmingham finish.

Failing that they will go in for Sam Vokes whos loan finished this weekend.(4)(19)Vokes is a good player & will do well for Cardiff , him being Welsh may persuade him to go there too.He's already back at WBAToo late fella, he`s gone to Bristol City on loan until the end of the seasonHe has signed for bristol city till end of season


12 Jan 2012 09:09:45
When you already sponsor a player and the club call to ask if your interested in sponsoring a J Rhodes for remainder of year then theres a clue. Watch this space. Whether you're Ipswich or Uddersfield, one day soon your game will be cancelled cus either the ref aint turned up or no-ones put the nets up ! Pub football.(1)(10)

Tottenham scouts have been in russia checking out cska pairing wagner love and doumbia as spurs try to bulk up their forward line. Both forwards are valued at around 25m but doumbia seems to be the better option. Spurs are also looking at newcastle shot stopper tim krul as a long term replacment. Blackburns samba is also a target after harry failed with a late bid for cahill of bolton.(10)(11)Vagner Love is not the player he was but on a loan till the end of the season might not be bad.Knows where the net is and Arry might just be able to give him a hug and make him better.Better ,stronger faster.They will have sell modric first ..harrys been told sell b4 u can buyWhen were they in russia ?? because there season ended in november .. lolThere is a link in the papers of Niko so maybe something could be done with Niko going and us getting ???.There is no football played in Russia at this time of the year, so when was this?Is there anybody spuds arent after?

Hooper looks to be on his way to saints with Southampton ready to make a big bid around 6mil, sharp move to leicester is stalling because he is being gready with his wages and albert Adomah is the main target to fill the gap on the wing(11)(26)Albert Adomah will not be leaving Bristol City, this is also rubbish, your head must be twisted hahaWhen are deluded Southampton fans going to get the message you have zero chance of signing Gary Hooper. The guy has said he loves life in Glasgow and wants to extend his contract - how that translates into "i want to leave for Southampton" i have no idea! I dont mean to be rude but the only players Southampton could possibly sign from Celtic are fringe players like Jos Hooiveld who couldnt get anywhere near the first team. This story isnt even getting a mention in the Scottish press because its a total fabrication - stop making mugs of yourself!Hooper is a good striker with a great record at celtic, why would he leave now when he will win silverware at celtic this season, only way i can see him leaving in Jan is if a prem club with a european football makes a big bid, celtic are in a poor league but much bigger than southampton and a lot of prem league clubs

and thats from an newcastle fan so no scottish bias hereA colleague I work with (who supports Celtic) said "if Hooper's not scoring then he isn't do much else!"

If thats the case then seems to me he's not the sort of player Southampton really need anyway!


12 Jan 2012 08:52:31
Tadanari Lee flying in from Japan to sign contract today. Papaers wil be finalised early next week making him avaialbale for his debut against Leicester.(12)(10)He has been training with saints for the last week and a half as well as watching the coventry game the weekend get it right or just don't botherIf you read recent posts on the OS then you'd know he was here, and then had to fly back to Japan since the Coventry game. He will be back in UK once paperwork finalized with British embassy in Japan.Love the idiots that moan about someone not gettin their facts right, when they themselves are the ones in the wrong!I love how no-one's ever heard of this guy, and suddenly every Saint is banging on about him like he's the Messiah. And you STILL haven't completed the signing. God, at least when Leeds sign nobodies, they are drafted in quickly.

Sup Ed. Will anyone sign for Norwich in this transfer window cos some of the rumours on here are utter rubbish - from a Norwich fan

Should suit you then as Norwich are utter rubbish.


Your comment says alot about the rest of English football seeing as we are currently the 9th best team in the country... Explain that.....(if you can?)(9)(6)You are right it does say a lot and, no you are the 3rd best team of a poor set of teams that can't get close to the other 6 and really ought not be playing them.

European League must come soon - please!I think he (or possibly she, i'm no Paul Jewell) has simply spelt Superb wrong.I'm a Norwich fan, some of the post on here have been rubbish.
Nobody know what player's Lambert is after, how do we know that behind the scene Lambert (maybe or not) talking to a few player's about joining us.
I think all we can do is wait before before anyone jumps the gun.
All i deal is in FACTS.

So please fellow Norwich fans - STOP - posting utter rubbish!Yea u been lucky so far this season with Norwich trust me u will be going down by the end of this season fact!!!If Norwich are UTTER RUBBISH, how come they sit in 9th place in the prem & playing good football.

From a Man U fanWhat do people have against Norwich? I dont even support them and It winds me up the amount of idiots on here that just post to put other teams down. Grow up childrenTo the guy who thinks we have been lucky and will be down by the end of the season, can you please explain your reasoning behind your comment? Tell me where we have been lucky, as (bar the joey barton incident) i think we have generally been unlucky (2 of the penalties given in the first 5 games were 100% not penalties for example). We have played open, expansive football when we can, and tightened up and battled against others. Lambert is proving to be one of the best tacticians in the league and that is why we are where we are. 11-13 points from 18 games will keep us up, thats half what we managed in the first 20 games. If you think we will go down you are mistaken, we have strength in our squad unlike Blackpool and Hull when in similar positions. We rotate regularly rather than playing the same players week in week out like the aforementioned pair. I see no reason why we cannot sustain the current top 10 position and finish well above our pre season expectations.

RANT OVER OTBC!Nothing against Norwich but Blackpool were top of the league at one point last season, playing good football and still got relegated!Yeah, hope it's not true that Norwich want Bridcutt from Brighton. We have holding midfielders. I think Lewis McGugan would give us something different. Power and a goal threat. And he's only early Twenties and the genius Paul Lambert could get the best out of him, in which case he'd be pure quality. If reports are correct and Forest only want 1.5million for him, well what are we waiting for??Blackpool went off like a rocket and gradually slipped down the table. Norwich have been improving and steadily climbing further away from the relegation places as the season has progressed. We have more depth in our squad and a manager more tactically able in charge. We have also only just got our first choice center half pairing together for the first time this season due to injury and are already looking more stable at the back. Expect one or 2 clean sheets in the near future and a reduction in the number of goals conceeded in the 2nd half of the season if they both (Ayala and Whitbread) stay fit.

Mark Hughes is set to sign six players in the next 10 days as he tries to to take his new club QPR, away from the relegation zone.
Nicky Shorey is in talks with Rangers after a £3 million bid was accepted last night. The former England left back currently plays for West Brom and Hughes is keen to make the left sided full back his priority.
Another defender set to move to Loftus Road is Chris Smalling. Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, is keen for the England defender to move out on loan and and could join QPR until the end of the season.
German youngster Christopher Buchtmann, who is wanted by a number of Premier League sides, will join QPR until the end of the season from FC Koln, with a view to a full time deal in the summer.
22 year old striker Stefano Okaka, is in talks with Hughes, after his club Roma had a £4 million bid accepted from the London side.
Another striker set to speak to Hughes is former Chelsea and Tottenham player Eidur Gudjohnsen. The Icelandic attacker is currently playing for AEK Athens but is available to speak to clubs about summer move, with his contract set to run out. The Greek club are also expected to listen to offers of around £500,000.
The third and final attacker to join QPR this month is Chelsea youngster Gael Kakuta. The young French midfielder will sign on loan until the end of the season.(2)(39)United need defenders , so why loan one out ?He can try signe any1 he wants ..no1 will want go to a side that will go down this seasonWe've already got one oan from an English club, so we won't be getting two more.Nicky Shorey - Possible
Smalling - What are you smoking??
Bucktmann - Dont know anything about him
Okaka - ste at Fulham, never been prolific, overrated and probably suit QPR.
Gudjohnson - Old, past it, cant cut it any more, realistic but wont do anything.
Kakuta - Joined Dijon on loan yesterday so obvious bcks. Throws doubt over all of your "info" doesnt it?Why have you made this list up? Smalling is an England International and in United's best starting XI even with everyone fit, which they are not. So why did you do this, you make this site look bad!As a QPR fan I have heard a load of sh!t flying about but this is the worse by far, stick to the more believeable stuff like Alex, Bassong and if I'm dreaming a bit Samba (there is still the belief he might sign for the bloke who brought him to England, yeah I can dream)Oh come on if you're gonna talk about eidur gudjohnson atleast say ex chelsea and barcelona player he hardly played for spurs in think it was like 10 games on loan...Who would pay 3m for shorey


12 Jan 2012 07:32:26

Southampton are all set to sign tadanari Lee after a work Permit appeal was accepted

"Although Lee did not meet the initial criteria to gain a work permit, his case has been approved by the football authorities, who agreed that the international star is an exceptional talent that will enhance the game in this country"

Lee will now fly to England and complete his move to the Saints


Already in england training with southampton. bull plop bit of hype.


Lee had flown back to Japan while waiting for the permit application to go through. On his way back now to seal the deal!(7)(11)Mate he went back to Japan for a few days!Didnt know the FOOTBALL AUTHORITIES now control imigration and work permits.

dont you mean the home office you titHow is that bull plop when its on the OS?Don't think so, although i know the work permit has been accepted just theres no need to add that other bit on.The home office rejected the original appeal. But the FA helped approve the deal by saying he's an exceptional talent that will enhance the sport in this country for year too come.

Just read the article on the Saints OS before you start moaning


12 Jan 2012 07:04:26

Vince Wolanin and Brian Howe are close to sealing a bid to buy Portsmouth.(1)(9)Why is it that these two always get brought up? If they had the money they would have brought the club instead of Milan.I am friends with Howe on Facebook (yes, it's actually him). He has posted that despite trying to bid for the club, with a sound financial package , he has not made the final shoot-out to purchase the club. So your rumour has no truth in it at all. PUP.


12 Jan 2012 02:09:08
The reason the Sharp to LCFC transfer has not gone through is because Sharp is demanding terms and wages that far exceed LCFC's offer

LCFC have offered Sharp 28k p/w
Sharp wants in excess of 45k p/w

Leicester have decided against continuing negotiation and moved on to alternative targets. With the other potential suitors (West Ham, Leeds and Southampton) baulking at these demands back in the summer Sharp will remain a Doncaster player until the summer.(19)(22)I have mentioned it before on here, these players think they are better then they really are. Saints had a bid accepted back in July only to not agree personal terms with the player because of his high wage demands. However that seems to be English/British players for you, which is why Saints have gone abroad to buy.Southampton aren't interested. This is the exact reason Saints didn't sign him in the summerBoth leicester and southampton are able to bring in a much higher calibre of player for the kind of wages hes demanding, especially since he is a championship striker at best, he should go to a championship pub team like ipswichI don't believe for one minute that those are sharps wage demands.
He just didn't want to join your clubs.Absolute nonsense!!Absolute rubbish! it has nothing to do with his wage demands! he turned down offers in the summer because he didnt want to move down south! he is happy here at Donny. He is not demanding £45k, he's not that type of player. He could of moved to Birnley in the summer for atleast double what hes on now. If he moves it to further his career, money is always second to that. He's not agreed terms because he will be waiting to see what offers come available to him. He wants to play in the prem, LCFC will not be in the prem next season so hes waiting. Hes also not gonna be guarenteed to play every game like he is here, he will join the club behind Nugent and Beckford in the pecking order. £45k a week what a load of complete rubbish! If nothing better comes along he will take up the contract offer at Donny. He loves it here, if we go down he will move on in the summer. If a top champ side or prem team he will leave this monthThe reason sharp hasnt singed is cos he wants to play in the premier league, and with lecister he will be in championship nxt season! so no point him leaving donny!Well better in the championship with Leicester than in league 1 with donny!


12 Jan 2012 01:41:24
Crawley Town want to sign 4 players this January.

Reds boss Steve Evans is looking to conclude deals for ex-loan winger Andy Drury from Ipswich, Grimsby Town forward Liam Hearn, utility man Bilel Mohsni from Southend and finally Leyton Orient wideman Dean Cox. These transfers will be completed within the next two weeks.

Leaving the Broadfield Stadium will be John Akinde who will be loaned to Hereford United, Ben Smith who is interesting Blue Square Premier side Braintree Town and Glenn Wilson is another Red that could move down the football pyramid with Ebbsfleet United looking to sign the right back.(0)(12)Ebbsfleet will not be siging anyone as we're skintAnd Andy Drury will go to Crawley but Matt Tubbs going the other wayDrury is correct. The rest is a load of rubbish. Only one of two of Evans's signing has ever got out either with Boston or Crawley. Him and Raynor keep things very close to their chest.

Do your trolling somewhere else.


12 Jan 2012 01:39:51
southampton set to sign hooper plus a winger any info on this cheerz ?(15)(25)Hooper won't joinI'll be absolutely astonished if Saints make any major signings in this or any other window, Cortese is the most tight fisted chairman in the Football League. Look at his record not one big money signing to date.
How any Saints fans suppose that Cortese will meet their expectations baffles me the man does not spend money.
He is so desperate to keep his attitude quiet as to the transfer market that all of his signings are for undisclosed fees. Now what does that tell you ?
As a Saints fan I'm really worried that Cortese will not fund the players needed to get us promotion. we have no forwards apart from lambert and Guly who is a make shift forward at best.Comolly is almost always crocked and 35 anyway and Doble isnt rated.
Saints have serious squad problems all caused by underspending Lee is a cut price buy amd a gamble Hooveld likewise has proved not to cut it at Championship level.
Cheap does not get promotion Cortese stop kidding the fans as you have been for the last two years.Surely nigel adkins and cortese have had since the last transfer window to work out who they need why after near two weeks of this window have nt they bought players in no wonder people are saying their rich as they do nt spend as i said a few days ago they might regret it come april


12 Jan 2012 01:27:42
Kightly will deffo not be going to us, he is a premier league player in the making, and Wolves speak highly of him. The most, we could get him back in loan, as he had a decent spell with us...(12)(3)Don't rate him that highly mate. Championship at best prob lge 1Kightly was brilliant before his injuries and now is coming back on good form'Don't rate him that highly mate. Championship at best prob lge 1'

Andiroo(8)(7)St Ledger plays centre back for the Irish national team. So he can't be that bad.I have heard Grayson is going into the chase for Adam Smith a defender

Micahel Uchebo to Stoke officially from VVV-Venlo in the Eeridivese for 1 million pounds guarenteed only thing stopping him from joining right now is his work permit and when he does come to Stoke he will officially be the tallest player in english football (6 foot 8 inches and a half). Tony Pulis loves signing bulky strikers doesn't he! And Tim Cahill from Everton for 8.5 million pounds and Junior Hoilett from Blackburn for 8 million pounds and Jermaine Pennant going other way for 5 million pounds and Fillipo Inzaghi from AC Milan on a free transfer. Tony Pulis has been busy this transfer window hasn't he!(7)(18)Don't talk sT mate, Uchebo deal is NOT finalized, there actually is a problem with the work permit, hes flying home today, so the only person that knows is him and pulis, cahil WILL NOT sign for stoke this window, stoke don't have millions and millions to spend, Jones could possible leave, along with fuller. Pennant isn't going this window but will go in the summer, Hoilets as good as a liverpool player, Stoke will sign Steven Nzonzi though, but expect it too be a quite window for stoke. (p.s im a stoke fan and would love to see cahill and hoilett come to stoke as they are missing a creative midfielder, but its just not going to happen this window)I think it's possible Pulis has inquired about each of these players but he'll sign 2 at most, maybe none at all this windowOnce again, cahill will not be leaving everton. leave it out stoke fans.Cahill will be a stoke player soonDo you not read the post he says the only thing stopping the deal is the work permit so everything else is agreed the personall terms and the bid this coming from a reliable source and evertonians seem to be forgetting your chairmen wants all the money you get from players doesnt want to buy anyone cahill was going to go stoke but mikel arteta went to arsenal which stopped this last minute so will the everton fans actually realise youve been selling you best players for a number of yours and this will carry on until your chairmen decides he has enough money and walks offLove the way stoke fans are now starting to beleive lies that they thought of themselves. "cahill was going to go stoke but mikel arteta went to arsenal which stopped this last minute" any proof?8.5 mill for Cahill, ill drive him to Stoke myself.HEY! Iwrote this comment and it's true check sky sports news only work permits! OK I'm not sure about the other two that's just speculation but Uchebo is definatley going to Stoke City in the January transfer window! DONE DEAL!

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.

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.

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(2)(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

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!

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!

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 !

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

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

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.

Ipswich are interested in Crawley Town's Matt Tubbs, with Andy Drury going the other way, this could happen as Crawley had a bid for Drury turned down a week ago, so if Crawley want Drury it makes sense to do a swap(6)(5)Heard drury was Swindon bound

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.

Lee will now fly to England and complete his move to the Saints(16)(6)Already in england training with southampton. bull plop bit of hype.

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)

Ed any news on the Falque Silva Loan from Spurs to Southampton? {Ed008's Note - He cannot join Southampton as he is on loan at Spurs from Juventus.(3)(7)Haha! no brainsMore saints waffleSorry ed but I think you will find that as long as there is permission from the parent club, loaned players can be loaned out. 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.

Burnley stop putting rubish about Carlisles Tom Tawio Carlisle have release a statment which contradicts about the so called "advanced talks" saying that they have no approaches for any of the players that include François Zoko Huddersfield and come on your not even that much better off than Carlisle after spending obseen amount of money. 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. How much have they spent ?Carlisle not that much smaller than HUDDS, doubt it! comparing players, ground, fan base, future plans (canal side) and yes money, no your right behind us arnt ur! we could sell rhodes and buy your whole club hahaSmithies - academy
hunt- academy
johnson- loan (2 full seasons)
pilkington - 400k tops, sold for 2-3 m
peltier - 200k sold for 1 m
rhodes 8-900k worth 6-7 m now

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?

If pulis said oh yeah jones is for sale, then hes going to sound desperate to sell hence a cheaper overall price, and as for uchebo, you believe everything you read in the papers or online, just remember yourself saying that on the 31st

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)

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..

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

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!

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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!.

Celtic will go straight into the group stages of the champions league if the won the sol this season as far as I know(6)(23)No they dont its 2 qualifiersNo chance..need to win the league first... plus spl teams dont have automatic entryNo he is correct, straight in. Co-efficient points from Rangers Europa league run a few seasons ago. It'll be qualifiers for the forseeable future after that though.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 – 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!

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.

For 30 million(21)(31)I doubt it as liverpool need him cause andy carroll is rubbishThat's stupid£ 15 - 18 m topsYou can add another 20 mil on top of that. If they can sign Kaka for nigh 60 mil then surely Suarez isd woth more than the amount you have suggested?

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.

Hearts winger Arvydas Novikovas is going to Walsall on loan for 2 months

FIRST Bid for Hooper from Southampton to be made at 5pm today...initial bid of 5.5 million(18)(17)Dont believe tight fisted Cortese either has or is willing to splash the cash in any transfer window he only buys on the cheap and Hooper wont be cheap. 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
ArthurComplete tosh. Hooper won't be going to Southampton. He's got too many Premiership sides looking at him (Newcastle, Sunderland, Villa, WBA, Fulham, QPR).

Ed 025, I posted this rumour sometime ago and I also mentioned our interest in baines. U poured scorn on it, well let me tell u that stoke are definitly in talks with everton about 2 of u'r players. 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.
