diff news:

If he's not too badly injured after tonight, West Ham will loan Keiron Dyer to Cardiff until May 2010 to give him some games and keep him fit.


I heard mike polit is going walsall and n'zozi


Watford fans can breathe (almost) a sigh of relief as your greatest fan, Sir Elton John, has agreed in principle to fund the club until next summer.

However, the deal depends upon Graham Taylor staying on at the club and Graham Simpson selling his stake in the club.

Sir Elton does not want to rejoin the board, but he does want the club passed on to, and I quote 'somebody with an IQ of more than 1' who is prepared to invest in the club and at least part–fund a move to a new stadium in five years, as Vicarage Road is getting old and a new stadium near the M1 will benefit both Watford FC and Saracens RFC long term.


Does anyone have any REAL + TRUE rumours towards LIVERPOOL ;) Please Post ...
SpArKy ;)


Mark my words Forest fans, Billy Davies will not unsettle the team spirit in January just make a couple of strong team orientated signings. First priority is securing Shorey on a permanent deal, next will be a move for a centre half with height, McCarthy at Palace, Cort, Zat Night are all targets. Forget fanciful talk of Dawson. Earnshaw will move on but Leon Best arrive in his place or if not then Tommy Smith will be rescued from Pompey.

Billy is also keen on Brian Stock to add goals and guile in midfield with Danny Pugh adding left sided cover and experience.Jonjo Shelvey will be added to provide midfield cover and is one for the future.Billy believes that this squad with a few tweaks can make promotion. He wants to keep the cash for bigger buys in the summer.PSR


To the guy who wrote;

To the deluded Birmingham Fans before you start spouting your nonsense about who you are or are not going to sign pop along to financial web check service and look at GRANDTOP HOLDINGS financial reports over the last few years. ARENT YOU IN SAFE HANDS. MON to Liverpool rumour now who dreamt that up ? MON at the moment can do as he pleases and sign who he wants why would he swap all that for a club that is ran by Nutters who are trying to destroy the club ? KILNSMAN is your best bet KEANE to Villa in Jan and the kid from west brom, Cuellar linked with REAL

I posted the Cuellar to Real Madrid on this site last year before he left Rangers. This is not a rumour, I heard this from Cuellar himself as a spanish group of business men were purchasing him for Real. When Rangers went out to Kaunus he was rushed to Birmingham in the back of a Ranger Rover to sign for Villa as Rangers wanted a quick sale at Cuellars request.

After Reading your post I have just checked with the guy who introduced me to Cuellar and apparantly this deal is still interesting Cuellar and Real. Believe or don't believe this but this information is not second hand but straight from the source.


To the fools claiming Giles Barnes will join West Brom for 2 millionhe has no club, he is a free agent so where does the fee come into it!?! Anyway, he is to take a chance at Forest because he feels BillY Davies can resurrect his career.Dan the Man


Arsenal rumours

As we know Arsene and us need a striker heard talk of adriano free type for wnger but im thinking more along the lines of Gignac or Remy but mainly Adriano or Gignac ( I want gignac)
. Expect a defender Sakho or Subotic both tactical good in air young and strong one in jan next in summer. and then cover for alex song as he is off to acn don't expect matuidi because he is a good player and we don't need competition for song right now but cover for when he is gone. I would like it if he bought a keeper too because i don't like almunia as numbeer 1 i would like either Akinfeev ( not likely though) or neuer hes a good keeper german and his idol is Jens Lehman i would like him... GoonerFB


Time for some sense about Forest. Billy Davies is after experience and height in the centre of defence. He is looking at Martin Taylor from Birmingham, Russell Anderson from Sunderland as experience cover for the short term and more promisingly Curtis Davies, Zat Knight, ONUOHA from Man City on loan.
In midfield he has plenty of flair but needs experience and grit. Lee Carsley may suprise a few as well as Jason Koumas both names who interest him.He may make a bold move for David Bentley on loan but more likely George Boyd from Peterborough.Guiness


To the "CLOWN" who said LFC will swap Babel for Walcott.... are u insane? walcott is proven, he may be injury prone but i'd rather have him for 10 games a season than babel for the full term. whoever u get ur info from is laughing his socks off right now! now onto a few more realistic rumours. AFC IN: Di Rossi or Weil and C Cole OUT: None. FOX N7 {editor's note – personally I would rather have neither Walcott not Babel. One is lightning fast but lightweight, can't pass, tackle, shoot, cross, has no positional sense or clue how to play the game. The other, well actually pretty much the same except he thinks he is a rapper rather than a footballer! If you think Walcott is proven then you need to get out more!}


BIG TRANSFERS–––Liverpool will sack Rafael Benitez on Christmas Eve. Manager will be ROY HODGSON!! FULHAM will appoint DARREN FERGUSON as manager. MAN U will not buy Villa, Silva or anyone as they feel that they are too good already and a new player may upset team morale. ASTON VILLA will sell winger MILNER to LIVERPOOL. Then theyll buy JENAS for 3m as he wants first team action leading up to the WORLD CUP. HUDDLESTONE is a contender for the ENGLAND WORLD CUP SQUAD. LIVERPOOL – VORONIN will go back to Ukraine with DYNAMO KIEV. As part of this deal, 5m will go to the Ukraine club and Andrey SHEVCHENKO will come to LFC on a 2–year contract. Also on their way out will be DOSSENA for 6m to INTER MILAN. This means that inter will be able to sell MAICON to CHELSEA for 22m. Then they will sell BOSINGWA to BAYERN MUNICH for 12m. CHELSEA will then buy PIRLO for 17.5m. LIVERPOOL WILL NOT SIGN PANDEV UNTIL THE SUMMER. LFC will buy C.Cole for 14m, DIABY for 6m and in the summer AGUERO for 40m. Out Voronin, Dossena, PACHECO LOAN TO MIDDLESBROUGH, and BABEL ON LOAN TO ARSENAL, who will not strengthen any more as he will play as a STRIKER. CHELSEA to sell Mikel to LYON for 6m.


SAF is sick and tired of hearing suggestions that he can't work the transfer shoestring as well as Wenger (like he used to earlier), hence his pointed refusal to go out and buy big...

He wants to go out with a bang in 3–4 seasons tops, and sees next season as the perfect time for all the kids to finally come good at once – anderson, tosic, the twins (this hasnt exactly been a great season with injuries so far.. but they have more than enough time on their side), kiko, welbeck, obertan, gibson as well as kuszczak, valencia and berbatov. However, in case he has doubts by the end of this season.. expect bids for a classy midfielder (gourcuff/defour), GK (adler/neuer/lopez/akinfeev/cesar!!) and a striker (villa/dzeko/huntelaar/agbonlahor)

PS – Evans has already proven himself
PPS – Expect to bid for a defender if Vidic goes or Rio is unfit


Manchester City will sign andreas iniesta for 60mil or diego for 40mil
and the huge transfer will be fernando torres for 90mi
Micah Richards to sunderland for 8mil
also arsenal are goin to put a 20mil bid in for ireland but it will be rejected!


Lfc out: skrtel, greek, dossena, degen, babel, voronin and maybe reira
in: upson (6mill), parker (7mill), cole (11mill), depending where babel goes we might get walcott (swap) if not then we will try milner (15mill), reira maybe in swap for mata (swap and 4mill or 16mill), james beattie (4mill).
if we don't get walcott or milner then we will try bentley (loan with view to sign in the summer for 8–12mill).


Re Blackpool. The poster below who says the latvian Rudolph will sign is wrong. He's Hungarian. Expect a fellow countryman as well from a capital club.
The Leeds physio is sorted Ooh Phil Horner is going there, Blackpool have a new physio. PH will be joined by other current 'staff' from the Seaside.


Liverpool targets: Elia (Hamburg), Pandev (Lazio), Busquets & Assulin (Barcelona), Kjaer (Palermo), Shawcross (Stoke), Cole (West Ham Utd)


Giles barnes to westbrom for around 2.5mil
He had his contract terminated last week at Derby, he is on trail at Birmingham City with review to a contract until the end of the season


Due to Capello wanting fully fit players for the world cup, and SAF sympathising with him, Owen Hargreaves is going on loan to Burnley in January due to United not being able to offer him the games he needs


Arsenal to sign 3 players in january, robert green for £8million plus vela on loan to west ham. the defensive midfielder will be gago from real madrid for £13million, and finally senderos will be swapped for beattie(target man needed), strange but wenger thinks his physical presence will help out the team and could be like heskey job for england. from reliable source who told me about silvestre to arsenal


Newcastle !!
Leon cort – loan
Wilshere – loan
Mccarthy – loan or buy


Just to quell the LFC rumor that eljero elia is on his way to anfield. as long as Rafa is calling the shots he doesn't fit into the scheme at LFC. also why would he want to move to LFC to play some of the time with a team in the same european competition as his current club and a worse league position than HSV, he would no longer be eligible to play in europa league if he moves. HSV just got him and with long term injuries to many of their creative players they will not be selling him till at least the summer as he is far too valuable to the league campaign (4 pts out in 5th) and too the europa league final which the team would absolutely love to be in as it is being played in hamburg. As for Van der Vaart his days in spain are numbered and all indications say england. he could fill the CF role at arsenal or play the same role or out wide for liverpool to either spell gerrard or as support to the torres/gerrard system. favor a move to arsenal as he fits much more the style they play.


Because of Robbie Savages (45) influence at the BBC and the recent signing of Paul Dickov (37) and DJ Campbell (30) Leicester old boy Steve Claridge (43) is due to join Derby as a striking coach in preparation for a possible management return at a league club in the future.
Nigel Clough (43) is apparently keen on this as it moves his back room staff away from the Rams fierce local rivals Nottingham Forest who other than Clough also have Gary Crosby (45) and Johnny Metgod (51).
Claridge has claimed he has no interest in the Derby job but would like to "keep his options open" and "look at returning somewhere" whilst he went on too add "this is a chance to get back into the game rather than talk about it".

expect to see this in the Derby Evening Telegrpah and national newspapers soon


Javier Mascherano will be sold to Barcelona for 31m in Jnauary. Benitez will sign Scott Parker for 8m and Juan Mata for 16m


Just back from Elland Road and their was talk that a new a physio was set to be appointed to work alongside Harvey Sharman as Paul Perkins has other commitments to attend to, no names were mentioned but apparently he has worked with Simon Grayson before, so i can only assume it is Blackpool's curent/ex physio as that is the only ever previous club he has managed.


Does anybody have any GENUINE Liverpool transfer rumours?


Wolves to sign robbie keane. come home plzz


Hello people, anybody got any Fulham transfer news ?


Alright the people who say Busquets buy outlause is 75 mill and gai he is our futher striker and when do swaps happen these days barca will sign 1 player that is Luis Suarez he stated that he wants to play for barcelona and he already ha a house out there forca barca


I am reliably told that Ryan Babbel is wanted by Arsene Wenger. Wenger was following Babbel before he opted for Liverpool, and it is understood that Babble will fill CF role.


Notts County owner peter trembling has found finence for the club but its limited and although it will keep the club afloat they will have limited money in the transfer market

the money is coming from a company in Ireland

also lee hughes will join ipswich tpown in jan


Looks like the villa fans are getting very scared of the new regime at birmingham... ibsevic, jancko, hutton and boyd to blues in january.. happy days ..


Blackpool will finally sign the Latvian Rudolf in January.Belakon and Malnacs have been highly influential in the negotiations.A Latvian goalkeeper is also rumoured to be coming over for a trial.


Rangers to make a move for Benni McCarthy in the transfer window. Miller could yet move to Boro to work under Gordon Strachan. Levein to take the Scotland job before long. Bougherra will still be at Rangers in May!


To the deluded Birmingham Fans before you start spouting your nonsense about who you are or are not going to sign pop along to financial web check service and look at GRANDTOP HOLDINGS financial reports over the last few years. ARENT YOU IN SAFE HANDS.

MON to Liverpool rumour now who dreamt that up ? MON at the moment can do as he pleases and sign who he wants why would he swap all that for a club that is ran by Nutters who are trying to destroy the club ? KILNSMAN is your best bet

KEANE to Villa in Jan and the kid from west brom, Cuellar linked with REAL


LFC transfer update....Rafa has to sell before he can buy. Expect to see Dossena, Babel and Voronin leave in January. This may generate some transfer funds (but i wouln't bet on it!!). YNWA


After Chris Coleman revived his interest in Lewis McGugan, it seems it might actually be Forest who get their man. A deal involving McGugan and £500K in exchange for Leon Best, out of contract in the summer, now seems likely to go through smoothly. McGugan wants first team football and Best wants to be in a side challenging for promotion to improve his chances of breaking into the republic of ireland first team. This one's likely to be less of a bitter pill for Notts fans however, as without the boy wonders' goals we look like relegation fodder to me and I can't see a 21 yr old midfielder being the answer to all our problems.


Hi, i was just wondering if anybody knows of any southampton tranfer rumours


Kevin phillips 2 cardiff city done deal!


WHU...If Green, Upson, Parker, Cole are good enough to go to "bigger" clubs why are WHU under performing at present? Anyhow, limited funds will mean more out than in come January. Hutton and Bently likely in with Upson and Green the other way. Parker could fill the Mascerano role for the scousers and Cole is still young enough to turn Vengers head. Sole Gamble! on a pay as you play deal and the Christmas party kid Beattie to help bring down the decorations


"Spurs has put in a £5million bid + gareth bale + tom huddlestone for madjid bougherra and alan mcgregor .."/////what a load of rubbish...this would suggest that mcgregor and bougherra are worth around £17m...your having a laugh!!..£7m MAYBE....anyway, onto matters green and white....rumoured today that middelsboro will come in for 3 celtic players, caldwell/robson/mcdonald...expect robson to go but not skippy or caldwell, this would allow mowbray to go for pedersen.


No word of a colleague at work is a french girl who was doing her christmas shopping in oxford street on saturday....upon entering topshop who should she see just casually shopping but David Trezeguet....after taking a pic with him (which she showed me) she said to him its funny how no one in london recognises which he replied 'well maybe in a few months it will be different'....where could he be going, , , Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea...all could do with a top striker like Trezeguet i think!!! True Stories




Eljero Elia to liverpool for £12 million
watch this space.


Intermarket group to start due dilligence around 22nd to 23rd december.

The stalling point in the deal was intermarket not being prepared to reveal their backers which i am told has now been resolved.

So a new year and a new regime for west ham united.


Fellow arsenal fans appear to be getting carried away with the idea of a very busy january. this will not be the case. arsene knows how destabilising an influx of numerous players in the middle of a season can be. expect no more than 3 signings in january. these will be one CF and a choice between a CB and a DCM, maybe both.
Striker: Adriano has been refered to numerous times, but i think this is unlikely. Wenger needs some1 who is sure to do a job for us in the absense of RVP. More likely are players such as Gignac or Balotelli. He will not go for Chamakh now, instead, if he still wants him, will tie him to a pre–contract agreement for the summer.
CB: Sakho and Subotic appear to be every1's first choice, including mine. my guess is we sign one in jan (subotic) and the other in summer.
OR DCM: Matuidi has been linked to us, by i see this as doubtful, although St Ettiene are struggling. one of the 3 west ham DCMs, Noble, Parker or Behrami are options. remember, we are looking for cover for song, not some1 to completely replace him long term.
Senderos will leave in jan, Silvestre will not leave till summer, as he is vital cover given our injured LBs.
Summer: Sakho will arrive with Hazard. There may be goal keeping changes if Almunia does not get back to his best. Rob Green or Manuel Neuer favourties. Silvestre will leave.
Traore, Denilson, Eboue and Vela will all stay, though traore and vela may go out on loan. rosicky is signing a new contract, gallas will not follow suit. vdv is a possibility, but would have to be in jan, not summer.
Jan: subotic, Noble and adriano in, senderos out.
Summer: Green, Sakho, Chamakh, hazard in, silvestre, simpson, Almunia, gallas and eduardo (loan) out.


Giles barnes to westbrom for around 2.5mil and nathan dyer for around 2 mil...kevin phillips rumours are flyin about too???? nathan delfonsou and clarke on loan frm villa done deals.sanchez watt also a loan target.andy obrien also bein linkd.


Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has had enough of Ryan Babels crying and wants him out of Liverpool, hence why he wasnt in the matchday squad against Arsenal. Juventus, Villarreal, Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen will all battle it out to sign him in January. Favourites are Wolfsburg as they are willing to offer 10m for Babel, much higher than Rafa's evaluation of 7m. Andrea Dossena is also on the out as he is not improving and is home sick. He wants to move to a top four club and Roma are willing to sign him for 4m. Milan are also interested but they want him in a loan deal. Napoli are NOT interested, contrary to reports and statements made by Dossena's agent. Andriy Voronin is not happy with the role he has at Liverpool and wants to move back to Germany with Hannover, Hoffenheim, Nuremberg and Hamburg all interested. Favourite club unknown but the fee is likely to be around 3m.

Rafa will also have another 12m to spend in January so the sales will give him a total of 30m to spend. He wants to wrap up Goran Pandev for 3m by January 5 as there is high interest in the Macedonian striker. Rafa also wants to sign an English centre back, and with Matthew Upson the only quality defender available, Rafa wants to offer 5m to test West Ham's resovle. Rafa wants to add some creativity to his midfield as he cannot always rely on Benayoun to provide this, in case he gets injured. Ivan Rakitic will be transfer listed in Jabuary as Schalke do not need him. Rafa has identified him as his primary target and is willing to bid 10m, but shoud this fail, he is also watching Mesut Ozil and Arda Turan, both valued at 10m. The final 12m will be spent on a left winger with Eljero Elia the top of the list.


Wenger will assess Arsenals possibilities in the transfer market over the next 4 games at Burnley, Hull, Villa and Portsmouth.Wenger will assess defensive postions as Sakho or Subotic are the ones earmarked.fee in the region of £8–12 million for Sakho and Subotic £13–15 million.Arsene will definitely bring in a goalkeeper as Almunia is not good enough.Robert Green the likely one for £6 million.Song will be missed as he will be on ACN duty.Wenger will look at Matuidi to add bite.St Etienne are struggling and could cost around £6–8 million.It was great to hear of Wengers rant at half time.The player needed it as they were poor.Arsene needs a attacker to play with Arshavin, Huntelaar or Chamakh will be great but Dzeko would be perfect for Arsenal.Arsenal have a realistic chance of winning the title if defensive additions are made.Arsenal need to shut out games in a ruthless manner which they lack.Overall wenger will look to spend around £20 million recouping £6–10 million in sales of Senderos and Eboue.Keep the faith fellow Gooners title is a distinct possibility.
