News from Celtic Park:

Tony Mowbray to be sacked within 48 Hours. Frank Rijkaard to be given the manager's job until summer.

Mowbray will join Derby as their new manager in the week. Despite today's result, it will not be enough to save Nigel Clough from the chop as manager.

Clough will be given the Port Vale job in the summer IF their takeover by the Harlequin group is completed by then.

Bristol Rovers Update ––– Rovers are looking to take back Richard Walker. After missing out on Bas Savage, Lawrence wants Walker back at the mem for a nominal fee.


16 Jan 2010 21:58:39
Ok I'm sick of these ridiculous rumors Regarding MUFC. I read this page off and on, and most of what's on this is crap. I am related to somebody working within old Trafford who is privy to what's going on and not the ground staff or tea lady b4 any smart comments. Take this as gospel – there will b no players coming into old Trafford in the nxt two weeks only excpt if there is a serious injury to key player– the only player to leave other than loan deals is Nani as his time has ran out but AF would like to hold onto him till summer and use him in swap deal. There is no rift with berba like some other stupid person said, Rooney will never leave has family and inlaws settled nereby. The money issue is big there is a real problem with the debt and the glazers are losing money stateside. However a Asian consortium is interested but expect a lot of haggeling over price. Summer clearout expected Vidic and berba out, and few others possible Nani swap fergie will hold onto English players. Another rumor to be killed– fergie likes benzema but with raul and van nis leaving not many strikers left and real on not willing to let him go and plan to give him season of more regular footie. Can't tell u who's coming in cause although AF has his eyes on a few prices will soar around the world cup and it will depend on who is running old traff in the summer. So please people stop puttin up this crap Messi to united for 120m I expect a lot of letters on this site when this happens trekking me I was right– take it as is a devote M U fan

RE this comment Celtic

Growing unrest within the Celtic camp over the management style of TM. The board have not been entirely convinced by the singings of TM so far also. Nineteen points dropped so far this season lagging behind a poor rangers side, questions marks over whether TM is the right person for the job. He apparently has always had a chip on his shoulder for being third choice between Owen Coyle and an un–named european manager. Not everyone was happy with his appointment.

Expect other off field disagreements to hit the papers soon. "

Bit of a cheek sayin we're a poor side, look at the table we are at LEAST a clear 6 points ahead, the team that's on top wins the league ya bawbag and the stats dinny say if the team were poor or not, fact of the matter is we're down to the bare bones of our squad and still managin to pull away from you Mankers!!! Take a look at your own dump b4 you start judgin us, TOOL!!!

Anyway on to some rumours from The Champions, Nade is a no go he's a big useless lump, heard a rumours that theres a possibilty of Alan Smith coming on loan. Other than this there won't be much more activity unless the consortium takes over quick sharp, the 4th member of the consortium is property magnate Graham Gillespie along with Paul Murray, Douglas Park and Souness!

Follow follow WATP
Ding Ding here comes the open top bus!!!! 2 in a row!! here we go!!


16 Jan 2010 20:16:45
BIG Arsenal transfer news! Wenger is into the possibility of signing a big target man, an anchor man and a keeper. Firstly the keeper situation, wenger has finally come to his senses to relise that Almunia simply is good enough and will look into signing either R.Green from West Ham or I.Akinfeev. Both have international expierence and would be better than Almunia(a lot better) Secondly a striker is Wenger's main target. All this idle talk of Dzeko and Villa is false. His main target is Lacina Traore. The 6f 8in striker would be perfect (well at least better than Bendtner)Trust me these deals will happen

Jamie Morgan AFC 4EVER

16 Jan 2010 21:07:12
To the guy posting the rumours about de la Garza of the LA Galaxy going to Arsenal: He is going to Arsenal, but to Arsenal Sarandi of Buenos Aires, not the big club in London.

Arsenal (of the Emirates) are in for
Nolan Roux of Brest
Sol Campbell
Samuel Galindo of Bolivia
CSKA winger Milos Krasic.

That will be it this winter.

Out will be Senderos on loan to an unnamed Swiss club (maybe Grasshoppers, maybe St. Gallen) because he knows he needs to play now and what better place to do it with a guarantee than in front of Swiss coaches? This summer they will sell him to an EPL rival or to an Italian club.


16 Jan 2010 19:59:09
MK Dons are looking to Loan out Jemal Johnson, Danny Swailes and Ritchie Partridge to League One strugglers Stockport County.

The players in question have found it hard to break into the first team this season and are being loaned out to the fellow league one outfit to keep them fit in the absence of a reserve side. All three players will likely be leaving permanently in the summer.


16 Jan 2010 20:03:30
According to reports in the Turkish press, Rafa Benitez rejected the recent bid from Birmingham for Ryan Babel as they are in negotiations with Turkish giants Galatasaray for a swap deal plus cash for their captain and star man Arda Turan. The player was widely expected to leave Galatasaray last summer with the club finishing a highly disappointing 5th in the Turkish league, 10 points behind champions Besiktas. However, it would seem this will now be Arda's last season with the club before moving abroad although Benitez is trying to push through a deal this month as he looks to claw back a Champions League place by the end of the current campaign.

An added bonus for potential suitors of Arda is the player's versatility as he can play on either flank or even in a more central role. It's no surprise that Liverpool are so strongly linked to the golden boy of Turkish football as Rafa Benitez has been looking to add some much needed flair to his strong outfit. The injuries to Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard and Yossi Benayoun have led Liverpool to attempt to push through a deal as soon as possible with the team lacking its most creative and goal scoring talent.

The 22–year–old Galatasaray midfielder enjoyed an excellent season individually last season even though the team ultimately struggled after scoring 7 goals in 29 league appearances (27 starts). In the 2007/08 season he also weighed in with 7 goals in 30 league appearances (29 starts) which led to interest from England, Spain and Italy. As new captain of the side, Arda has scored 4 goals in 16 league appearances this season as the club sit 2nd in the league, 1 point behind leaders Fenerbahce. Arda is a team–mate of former Liverpool star Harry Kewell and reports suggest the Australian has given a glowing report about life at Anfield.


16 Jan 2010 20:06:04

Manager John Hughes has had a huge fall out with chairman Rod Petrie he has told Hughes that he can't buy any new players now or in the summer unless he sells either Anthony Stokes or Liam Miller or swap deals with other players in the squad will be considered.

Also it has been announced that Hibs bubble has burst, their dream of winning the SPL (ha ha) or splitting the Old Firm is rappidly going for a burton, i couldn't believe that all the HOBO fans from Fester Road thought they could actually split Rangers or Celtic NO CHANCE guys maybe if you played FIFA 10 on the Playstation. Ps Darren Barr to sign for rivals Hearts on a 3 year deal THE BIG MAN ( always in the know ) Pps Do you remember the last team to split the Old Firm if you don't i'll refresh your memories it was Heart of Midlothian

Any real rumours about nottingham forest


16 Jan 2010 19:30:47

After the Burnley game Fergerson had a major fight with Berba in which he got the HAIRDRYER treatment.

Barcalona soon caught on to this and are ready to pounce.

They are set to offer 10mil plus Yaya Toure and Bojan.

Fergie want to accept but Glazers will only accept a straight cash offer for someone they paid 32mil for.

So instead they are going to accept a offer from Real Madrid for EVRA and ROONEY combined for a massive 60million AND Benzema.

Fergie is set to bite Madrids hand off for this deal to go through

99% to happen with 50–50 for the Berba deal
Trust me never been wrong before


16 Jan 2010 19:32:53
Just spotted Jose murhino coming out of anfield with Chirstian Purslow and three suits.


16 Jan 2010 19:42:18
Why would Arsenal swap Fabregas for Henry, Hleb and Y.Toure? That is ridiculous and complete Bollcks, stop talking out of your ase!
Liverpool are trying to swap Babel and 3m for Arda Turan.


16 Jan 2010 19:54:45

16 Jan 2010 19:09:04
Rumours for AFC,
Wenger is looking to bring in possibly an anchorman, goalkeeper and a forward in January transfer window, He has been told he has 40m cash to spend, yet he will only spend around 20–25m.
Yaya Toure, really unsettled at barca.
Scott Parker, cheap fee from west ham
Robert Green, another cheap fee
Manuel Neaur(spelling, a great young prospect
Igor Akinfeev, proven a great goalkeeper for CSKA
Edin Dzeko, if wenger can cough up the cash for him
Vagner Love, maybe consider a loan move to see if he can cope in premier league
Hulk, just what arsenal need hold–up player and can finish he will choose between arsenal or man utd.

You Heard It Here First,
Long Live The Gooner Tradition.


16 Jan 2010 19:09:59
Milan Jovanovic is going to sign for AC Milan in the summer. At that time they will also sign Edin Dzeko in exchange for Kaka Kaladze, Marek Jankulovski and 30M. Dzeko really is that good, and really is worth that much. He would torch the lousy defending in the Premiership, which is why he wants to go to Italy. Sy what you want to about Serie A but the defending is FAR better even though the Premiership is a better overall league.

Wolfsburg will replace Dzeko by raiding Leverkusen for Steffan Reisling (spelling).

MON will only sign a striker if they sell either Heskey or Carew. My wager is that someone will want to give Carew first team football, because he has been spending a lot of time on our bench. Maybe there will be a swap deal involving Keane. I kind of doubt it though. Youre probably looking at a cheapo depth forward signing to replace whoever they sell. I think they will sign Roberto Canella from Spain ro replace the outgoing Shorey. They will also sign someone to replace NRC. I don't think it will be Parker.

Petrov and Milner have the central midfield locked down. Milner is the next Gerrard and is better than Parker. Therefore Parker would be the first man off the bench. Whoever they do sign will be in the mold of a good super substitute. That is also why they will NOT sign Bentley. Where would he play? He is not better than Downing, and he is not better than Asheley Young. They will NOT pay 10M for a substitute.

Think depth when youre talking about these Villa Rumours. The Manager believes they have a good enough team. Therefore he will sign replacements and solid depth players to fuel their run at the top 4.


16 Jan 2010 19:17:28
Simple solution 2 all liverpools problems sack Benitez and bring in Daglish. Daglish has experience on the throne and is a grat manager bring him back.

16 Jan 2010 18:46:37
Sorry but can anyone tell me what relevance zaki going to arsenal has to do with the well known fact that he had a medical with hull? its not as if arsenal couldn't make a last minute move or anything.
Now that the squad is stripped to the bare bones wenger may bring in a midfielder if one is purchased it will not be for more than 8 million and saha is a decent shout to be involved in a swap deal with senderos.


16 Jan 2010 18:51:02

16 Jan 2010 16:03:32
To the chap who wanted real AVFC rumours.

Ive heard that we are seriously looking to sign 2 players, Robbie Keane & Scott Parker.

Id love to see them both at Villa but listening to MON you get the impression that he thinks our squad is strong enough, although he does admit he WILL sign a player IF we let one go !, harewood, shorey, hokey cokey, etc.

Believe in better.Believe in Billy.

Valery Belokon has given the go ahead to finance such a deal as Lewis fits the the target profile as a potential international first teamer with a potential sell on value in excess of 3 million.

Nicky Law, Gergely Rudolf and an unamed non–league starlet expected to sign within the week.


16 Jan 2010 17:31:00
Boydy could be a toffee

moyes is keepin tabs on boyd situation at ibrox and mcgregor is a birmingham target


16 Jan 2010 13:06:05
One or two of you will recall that several weeks ago I stated Liverpool were after Celtic's McGeady as a loan player but had withdrawn interest afte Birmingham placed a cash bid. (The bid from Birmingham was confirmed in the papers several days later). The more dedicated long–term stalwarts of you will recall that last summer and the summer before I stated that Liverpool had shown serious interest in Joe Cole – Rafa is a long term admirer of him.

I can reveal that Liverpool are actively persuing both players as potential signings to fill the right side of midfield. They are after Cole on a 'free' or low fee and are after McGeady as either swap for Babel or sell Babel and the money raised used as a transfer fee. The figure mentioned is £10M which Celtic would reluctantly accept and Liverpool believe they can mostly raise from the sale of Babel to either Birminham or more likely Marseille. Liverpool do not want both Cole and McGeady – but will take the first of the two that they can get. They are wary however of McGeady's off pitch behaviour but believe that is 'wild oats' and he'll grow out of it.

And fellow Reds, Rafa is going nowhere until the summer if he goes at all. At the moment he is basically the only show in town so accept it and support the guy.



16 Jan 2010 13:19:57
Everton and manchester are trying to sign real madrid and argentina midfielder gago for around 8m.


16 Jan 2010 13:24:45
Bas Savage to Rovers, Lawrence is determined to get the big striker in, despite it being against the wishes of Trollope. Lawrence wants to spend the rest of the Ricky Lambert money, around 900k on the striker. Trollope is unhappy at this as he doesn't rate Savage and would rather use the money to bring in any of the following:

Adam Hinshelwood – Wycombe
Andy Bishop – Bury
Jermaine Easter – MK Dons
Nicky Law – Rotherham
Dave Hibbert – Shrews

With Trollope recieving interest from Sheffield Wednesday, and other clubs sniffing around, his relationship with Lawrence which is fragile at the moment could force him out if Lawrence gets the striker of his dreams, Bas Savage.


16 Jan 2010 13:33:49
Notts County investment talks stalled.

Negotiations on Sven to Real Betis next week. 2 million Euro compenstion to be used to settle pressing debts.

16 Jan 2010 14:22:41
Rafael Benitez has had enough of Ryan Babel and is looking to swap him for Samir Nasri. Arsene Wenger is reluctant to let Nasri go but will consider it if Rafael Benitez includes an undisclosed academy/reserve player.


16 Jan 2010 14:44:43
Amr Zaki 2 join Hull City on loan.


16 Jan 2010 14:46:56
Babel is set to leave in an 11m bid from Birmingham, it is true that we rejected a 10 million bid from Birmingham but due to his stupid twitter rant Beenitez thinks he should go. I personally don't want him to go and unlike other LFC supporters I think he has done well, because it is hard for him with alot of pressure on him.

But on the other hand Milan Jovanic from Liege will join on a free in the summer, as will Maruane Chamakh. Arda Turan may arrive in the next couple weeks if Babel goes.


16 Jan 2010 14:50:13
Arsenal will add to the signings of Sol Campbell and Samuel Galindo by placing bids for Robert Green (West Ham, 6m), Simon Kjaer (Palermo, 11m), Zezinho (Juventude, 3m) and Lacine Traore (FC Cluj, 3.5m). Wellington Silva will join in 2011 once he turns 18.
They will recoup some of this money by selling Manuel Almunia to Osasuna and Phillip Senderos to Everton.
Not all of these are guaranteed to happen this month, but they will be by the start of next season.
A couple of the fringe players will be allowed to leave on loan for the rest of the season – Jack Wilshere, Vito Mannone and possibly Carlos Vela.


16 Jan 2010 15:02:46
Coventry will add to the signings of Chris Hussey (AFC Wimbledon), Richard Wood (Sheff Wed), Carl Baker (Stockport) and Gary Deegan (Bohemians) by signing Leon Barnett (West Brom), Will Buckley (Rochdale), Lee Barnard (Southend) and Tamas Priskin (Ipswich).
Chris Coleman will then cash in on Leon Best, who will join one of Burnley, Celtic or West Brom for a fee of 1.5m, as his contract is up at the end of the season and him and the club are struggling to come to an agreement over a new deal. Elliott Ward will also leave for around 500k, joining either Scunthorpe, Plymouth or Huddersfield.
Youngsters Ashley Cain, Adam Walker, Jermaine Grandison and Sean Jeffers will all go out on loan to Conference teams for match action.
Kieren Westwood, Aron Gunnarsson, Sammy Clingan and Freddy Eastwood will all be offered improved long–term deals, whilst Clinton Morrison will be offered a new 1 year deal.
Dimi Konstanopoulos, Stephen Wright and Michael Doyle will leave in the summer when their contracts expire.

Expect the Sky Blues to be challenging for Promotion next season.


16 Jan 2010 15:28:21
I am a friend of Victor Moses and occasionally speak to him. He has told me that he is does not want to leave Crystal Palace for a bigger club because he does not want to rot in the reserves like other youngsters who were tipped for the top. However he would be willing to leave if he was allowed to be loaned back to Palace for 2011/12 season and possibly the following season so he can play regular first team football. His first choice would be Arsenal as he loves London and Wengers reputation for bringing the best out of youngsters.


16 Jan 2010 11:06:41
LOOK ! why is every trasfer rumour on here either to do with liverpool, mancheter united or manchester city! there not the only ones who can buy players and bye the sounds of things there all buying the same players! someone please come up with some proper rumours and interesting ones and not rubbish ones such as iniesta to man city for 25m!

Old firm
McGeady is not for sale for the reported £8M from birmingham although it would be hard to see celtic turn down anything in excess of £10M for the ROI winger.
Tony Mowbray has stated that celtic ar close to completed 2 more signings, expect a new CB & forward, no names as yet, but not robbie" linked every season" keane


reports in several papers today state that both danny wilson & john fleck have both rejected new contract offers from rangers and old walter has said that he believes both players are looking towards getting a payday move to someone in england, both spurs and man utd are rumoured to be looking at the 18 years years olds.

if the latest reports about mcgregor are true expect to see him join the BarL dream team very shortley

Man Utd Transfer News

Regarding a fan wanting news about transfers at M.U 2 Huge Deals will happen before the end of the month. 100%


16 Jan 2010 13:01:52

Have got it on good authority that a member of the board is seriously considering quitting the club after receiving a death threat and a pig's head in the post.

The board member is said to be 'totally sickened' by this, and the police are investigating the incident. If this board member leaves, it could very well trigger a financial meltdown at the club – on a scale similar to that at Portsmouth.

I know Rangers fans, like myself, are annoyed with the board for mis–managing the club. However that is going too far.


16 Jan 2010 01:09:01
Liverpool are going to go public about a 7million pound bid For Hugo Rodallega. The striker has impressed Rafa and liverpool are looking for an extra affordable goalscorer. You heard it here first.

Stoke City have pulled out of the deal to bring David James to the potters because of wage demands. Wenger has confirmed Campbell will sign and Senderos will leave, but has ruled out Sergio Canales.

To the idiot who believes Torres will be off to Man City, along with Maicon, Gerrard, Ribery and Iniesta. As a reds fan and the chaos surrounding Liverpool at the mo, i could be tempted to believe that we would accept £125 mill for both torres and Gerrard, however Gerrard if he were to leave would definitely go abroad and Iniesta who is currently a star player at probably the worlds best team would never go to Man City and it worth alot more than £25 mill. All of this says to me your full of it mate.Money can't buy loyalty!!
Anyway onto real rumours, the arda turan story is gathering pace with an exchange for babel seeming likely, also Menez who is out of favour at Roma could also be a loan possibility with a view to a £8 mill summer move. Also due to Torres injury Rafa is considering a loan move for none other than ... Voronin hahahaha

To the city fans laughing at Liverpool and Man Utds demise. Be very wary of what might happen. We both have stupid americans in charge but with all the financial trouble in the Middle East, the arabs might just bale out or hold back on the spending.
Liverpool and Man United have both got one thing MCFC can't buy.A rich history and class!
You might end up back where you belong!

To the clown saying that HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani the Amir of Qatar is not interested in buying LEEDS, well I too work in Doha, and had info from the MOI saying that the Amir wanted the bigger club especially after beating them 1–0 in Man U cup final. Also Leeds have better fans, and serve Lobster sandwiches. He!He! Come the whites.

To the dude who said:
(Cba copying everything you typed, but ended with this shit)




No 1 – Why would nando or stevie want to go to a club who have yet to break into the top four and have zilch experience of challenging for a championship. They would not go anywhere near Manchester anyway.

No 2 – Liverpool are a good club because they have won 18 top flight titles, and 5 european cups etc. etc. and are the most succesful club in English football. (Something Man City will never hail in comparison to)

No 3 – How is the club goin down the shitter after one season? Sure the finances are low and we are having a wank season, but we are still aiming for a top four spot and in the Europa League. An investment is on the cards, and there will obviously be some billionaire out there willing to invest, after all we are Liverpool FC, one of the biggest football clubs in the world, even if this season is a disaster.

No 4 – I would love to see where Citehhhhh would be without your arabian friends at the helm, seein Darius Vassell bangin in the goals, or Michael Ball sprinting down the wing HAHAH.
LFC have always been a top, top club and always will be, face facts City will always be living in the shadow of United.

No 5 – Your a tit! and you are delusional if you think players like Iniesta would swap a Barca team, who at the moment are the best club in the world, winning titles with relative ease and have players such as Messi, Ibra and Xavi, for a team who have won nothin' since fuck knows, are yet to be serious title contenders, and cannot guarantee champs league football.

Heard from a source in local media circles in Sheffield, that Blackwell will leave in the summer. Board see him as a cheap option but now understand that fans are staying away due to the teams play, to much longball. Also they have come to see that to many good players have left or will not go to Sheff united due to the style of play.

Macabe, after missing out on the world cup stadium bids, now wants to get the club going again as he see's this as the best way to get a good price. His family are ready to walk as they know they have taken the club as far as they can.

Killa – will stay until the summer (then can ask clubs for a better wage as hewill be free.

Monty – Off to lower Prem club in late Jan.

Big News – Jamie Ward will go to a Prem club for around 2–2.5 million. 6 months ago he was bought from Chesterfield for 250k. The chairman see's this as a good profit. (uniteds best player by far, fans will revolt over this one)

Ched Evans – he will stay and be farmed out for small fee in the summer. Waste of 3.5 million.

LFC rumours

Babel to Roma in exchange for Jιrιmy Menez.


16 Jan 2010 09:53:21
To the chap who mentioned about Harry Redknapp leaving Spurs due to stress about the HMRC...

You're spot on!

I've heard that Harry is not well, and he is very stressed and unhappy behind the scenes. Spurs are talking to Newcastle about Chris Hughton coming back as manager until the summer, but Hughton wants to stay at Newcastle as they will be back in the Premiership next year anyway.

Avram Grant is a likely replacement, but Guus Hiddink is also a good shout to replace Harry. {Editors Note: You obviously missed the televised interview where Harry was on good form and although he is angry, it seems he's getting closure, and I don't mean the door of a cell!


16 Jan 2010 10:06:57
Zaki to sign for gunners till the end of season on loanmark my words


16 Jan 2010 10:28:57

TM attempted to scare off suitors for
Aiden McGeady by saying he is not for sale but the board will listen to an offer if it matches or exceeds 9 million.

McGeady is interesting other teams than Birmingham, most notably Liverpool who if they sell Babel will be in the market for a creative wide player.


Very little movement in or out during this transfer window unless the deal with Lloyds can be concluded.

Expect a few bosman singning with relatively low wages. Mendes seems most likely to leave.



16 Jan 2010 10:33:26
Y is everyone sayin milner will be goin to man u, in q swap deal with nani ? Why would milner go to a club to sit on the bench and ruin his chances of playing for england at the world cup ? Also all the rumours on this site comprises of deluded man u, man c and Liverpool fans, why are u writing such rubbish, Liverpool and man u have no money and all the man city rumours are buying players from clubs who are top quaility players who want to be playin camp league football, not the she u lot play.

Man City to sign:
Dick Van Dyke &
Paul Potts

You lot make me laugh, a bit of cash on your hip and you think every top footballer wants to sign for you!!!

Real rumours:

Purslow has said NO MAJOR players will be sold ie Gerrard & Torres, that investment is on the way and that we will stop buying 5–10mil players as they can be risks. One major signing in the summer Villa, Aguero etc.

The worst player ever to wear the Liverpool shirt Babel to leave in Jan (thank god)

Just got back from a holiday and bumped into none other than David Villa at Heathrow. I can speak Spanish so we started chatting and he said he was in London to buy a new apartment. I asked him why and he said that he was going to sign a five year deal with Spurs, it will be announced on Wednesday. David said it was like a dream coming true and he has always dreamt of playing under Redknapp. He also added that it will be pleasure to play some real football with Assou–Ekotto, Bentley and similar "great football talents". Watch this space!

Stigberto says:–
Celtic struggling to meet wage demands of several signing targets, GILES BARNES to come on trial to prove fitness ahead of 6month deal. 1 more defender and striker also priority with THOMAS ROGNE of Staebeck and LEON BEST on the radar. Over at Castle Greyskull the dark clouds are gathering as FAT BOY BOYD is refusing to sign new deal, DAVID WEIR has been asked to use his BUS PASS to get to training and the Bank are refusing to sanction cash for even a loan signing WALTER SMITH is becoming disilusioned with the club and has applied for an ASSISTANT MANANGER position at PRIMARK.

Scunthorpe have made a £250k bid for Lucas Leiva. Rafa has rejected the transfer. The yanks will accept the bid if they meet his buy out clause of £20m. Apparently Scunthorpe were really interested in the talismanic midfielder after seeing a DVD compilation of him committing a number of silly fouls just outside the book and his impressive short square passing. {Editors Note:– "just outside the book?'...did you mean he got away with them?}


16 Jan 2010 00:32:11
"also heard that the gers are hoping to sign Shamrock Rovers R.O.I. under 21 midfielder Sean O Connor for around £300K."....

this would be a very welcome signing at castle greyskull eh...loljeezo, rumours guys please


16 Jan 2010 00:35:30
To the dafty that says Rangers are signing Nade and colin Pish, have a word mate eh? Why post such utter garbage? This is a rumour site. Not a lets tell pointless lies site. Nade is one of the worst strikers ever. Hes scored about 20 goals in his whole career and im not joking. Hes overweight and a laughing stock at Tynecastle never mind anywhere else. Anyway, as bad as he is what don't people get? Rangers can't sign till they have sold and when they do sign it will be better quality than the 2 worst strikers in Edinburgh.

Forbes Richest Royals

Top 10 Richest Royals of the World – Number 8 : Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatar

Fortune: $2 billion (no change)


16 Jan 2010 00:43:12
To the clown talking up HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani buying Leeds and loaning out Al Saad's 'youth players', you clearly don't have a clue. The system here in Qatar can only be described as bonkers as the best youth players are snapped up by Aspire – a separate entity all together from the league. Aspire can step in at any time during a player's contract and demand the player's registration with no compensation due to the club. I know this as I work in Qatar and have close links with Al Arabi (Lua–Lua's club) so have a working knowledge of the system here.

Because of my links here I can confirm, however, that HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani is in negotiations with the Glazers about buying MUFC. I tried to persuade them to invest in Celtic but they weren't having it... gutted!


16 Jan 2010 00:50:10
I have heard from a very reliable sorce, that before the end of the transfer window someone will post a true rumour on here instead of a load of fantasy nonsense. (especially you liverpool dreamers, )

Mancini will be replaced by Mourinho 100% done deal. Limited spends in the Jan window is frustrating Mancini.. with Cook & Marwood having the final say on the new players coming in... Worth a bet


16 Jan 2010 00:56:44
Listen Rafa is not going anywhere neither is Torres or Gerrard.

Torres is probably one of the most loyal players left in football these days. He has been through bad times before with Atletico Madrid and he didn't jump ship then.

As for Gerrard, he knows of he leaves Liverpool knowbody would care if he one major honours elsewhere, not even his family and this what is important to Steven. Without Liverpool football club there would be no Steven Gerrard and he thinks like wise. Remember he has been through bad times before under Houllier when he was a promising youngster. He could have had any club he wanted but did he go ... NO.

As for transfers in January, the board have now urged the yanks to back Rafa with cash after discovering the latest injury news to Torres, Benayoun and Gerrard. Word aroung Liverpool is that the board are asking for another 10 million to put on top of the 6 they got from the sales of Voronin and Dossena.

Rafa knows he needs a striker and will propably look along the lines of: Heskey, Kenwyn Jones, Carlton Cole or possibly Vucinic or Baptista both of Roma. He is also looking for another wingback either for the right or left. Gareth Bale could be a possibilty for the left.

There will be no further departures from Anfield in this tranfer window but there will be a few come the summer. The players that could be on their way out are, Kuyt, Aurelio, Babel, Lucas, Reira and Degen.

Players that could possibly come in are : Marouane Chamekh, Aiden McGeady, Juan Mata and Scott Parker

Having saw on skysports that Zaki is having a medical at an english premier league club tomorrow (16th) it came to me that it could be Arsenal. He is a Tall, Strong, powerful Target man and can score goals. Looking on his personal website it comfirms he is going to the un–named club on loan. This would suit Arsenal as he is available for champs league and can fill the RVP role.
Just a thought that's all, i think it would be a good move on loan untill the summer.


16 Jan 2010 01:05:56
Lfc fans i think benitez is up to something he ruled out a move for babel because he thought yanks would take the money to pay dept but since his approval that he will get the money to spend he may want to sell babel hes already left out of the team who knows expect lots of talk about babel future
