LFC: check back and see it is the third time I have said this in five weeks. Jurgen Klinsman is being lined up to replace Rafa. RB will be given a 'token' sum (£5 million? ) to keep things moving on for the January transfer window and that will rule out Micah Richards who I am reliably informed IS on the radar.

Expect Alonso and Reina to want to walk if Rafa goes, but I hear that Torres is tied down and Stevie G is not that fussed if Rafa goes.

  It offical Everton have signed Andrei Arshavan from zenit st Petersburg for £12 million this will be annouced after the Middlesbrough game on new years day

  Anth L what are you on about 'Wes Brown has bought a house in The Tunstall Grange area' – I to work for the local council and can confirm that I have seen no mention of it – now on to the real rumours. Sunderland Ins Steve Sidwell – Chelsea, loan at first with view to a permanent. Arca – Middlesbrough – 2.5 million, he still lives in Washington and has stated many times his love for Sunderland and their fans. Jonny Evans – United – £6 million. Wayne Routledge – Tottenham –1.5 million. Sunderland Outs Graham Kavanagh – 500 k to championship team. Anthony Stokes – Celtic – £2 million. Russell Anderson – 500 k – Hearts. Expect a few big name players heads to be turned once Sunderland survive their first season back in the big time and Keane to pull off a few tranfer suprises. Ha'way the Lads FTM
