Ed Post this please

West Ham are being linked with a move for Barcelona 'B' striker Jonathan Soriano.

The 26-year-old striker - whose sole appearance for Barca's first team came in 2009 - scored 32 goals in Spain's second flight last season as he fired Barca's B team into the play-off zone.

And according to Mundo Deportivo the Hammers are just one of up to ten clubs to express their interest in signing the player, a list that includes Germany's Borussia Moenchengladbach and Portugal's Benfica.

With Sam Allardyce looking to reinforce his attacking options for the second half of the season, Soriano - whose existing contract expires next June - would represent a fairly risk-free investment.(8)(24)

Eden Hazard is close to joining Spurs after Tottenham agree a fee of 24m with Lille.(23)(38)Would be a class signing but cant see itPull the other one champ.24m is very cheap and I believe there are a few teams after him so expect the price to riseThink you need to take the middle two L's out of his current clubs name to find out what this story really is.I hope he goes spurs, im loving spurs' fight in the PL this season a breath of fresh air to the rest on how to build a squad and compete with the mega-rich.

spurs for the league!

and i support one of the top clubs, id still like to see spurs take it home, although they probably wont because while there first XI is great, they lack depthWe aint got 24 million you fools

Antonio Valencia is very close to signing a three and a half year deal with Russian side CSKA Moscow. Valencia isn't happy at the amount of first team football he has been told to be expected and now will move to the continent. The Ecuador winger will join for around £13 million.(16)(24)United wont take a £3 million loss on a player that has only gotten better with 4 years left on his contractNot a chance..Even if he did want to go, SAF wouldnt sell a much improved player at a loss.United don't sell in January. unless surplus to requirements which Valencia isn't.

Uruguay and Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is set to hold talks with Real Madrid after the Naples club accepted a £40 million. Jose Mourinho has been chasing Cavani for over a year now but sees Cavani as the ideal striker Madrid have been looking for since the former Chelsea boss took over.(26)(17)Where would he fit in, ahead of ronaldo 17 this season, higuain 12 goals, benzema 8 goals. Didn't think mouriho will be spending 40 million when he doesn't have or need to.Rumours are that Higuain is not happy playing second fiddle to Benzema, it would be interesting to see if Higuain moves on this Jan if real can secure the signing of Cavani.

They paid aroudn 16 for phil jones, decent player but no currently at the same level as Tiote. Even Fat Mike would laugh at this! Tiote will not leave for anything less than £20 MIL.If carrols worth 35 million , then tiote has to be worth 70million ?Mike is wanting 25 mil min.hope he stays still.Lol clown, 30 mil. tiote has 6 and a half years left on his contract... lol manu and yesterdays news, manc are the only likely team to buy him.

Peter Huggins(7)(11)I played with flinty and still talk to him never said anything about a moveNo chance 3 of the outstanding players will leave. Sure your name is not Muggins?Total nonsense rumours Paulo is strengthening in january and these three players are key to our promotion push. Wont happen.

Sunderland (Ha'way the Lads)


Nicolas Lombaerts, Zenit, 7.5m
Maarten Martens, Az, 4m
Emile Heskey, AVFC, 1m
Robert Mirosavic, Helsingborg IL, trail
Nafiu Idrissu, Asante Kotoko, trail
Greg Cunningham, trail


Marcos Angeleri-All Boys, 0.5m
Elmohamedy-Al Sadd, 4.5m
Lee Cattermole-Un-named club 5.5m
Nicklaus Bendtner-released

In:£12.5m Out:£10.5(4)(29)Doubt some of those mate may get martens
as i believe he wants to try prem but my
mates sister works at club and we have
watched one of barnsleys players namely
Jacob ButterfieldAmazing considering Martin O'Neill was told there would be no money available to him in January.Think they would give o,niell money if he
thought a particular player may improve us,
dont think it would be massive amounts
So players like Butterfield may fit in.Think he
is valued at2.5 to3.5 millionHe wasnt told anything regarding transfer fundsMON will not sign any of those, his contacts in the game are limited, he will sign mediocre players who do a job, he will also sign quick players, for counter attacking football, do not expect any flair players to stay or be in your team. Also next season expect the team to come unstuck around Jan-February. He will also leave your club in a worse state than he found it in 4 years time, after a number of top 6 finishesAmazing how they can release bendtner when he is ON LOAN from arsenal. Get your facts right before posting on hereBendtner on loan, cannot be released, idiot!!


16 Dec 2011 13:19:07
Sheffield United are set to cash in on one of their big earners Stephen Quinn. The club confirmed before the summer window closed that an offer from Blackpool was received for the irish midfielder but that the fee was laughable.
However it's thought that Blackpool are set to bait united making young forward Billy Clarke part of the deal. The striker had a successful loan stint at Brammall lane and United boss Danny Wilson has made no secrets about his admiration for Clarke.(4)(4)No need to post this twice!


16 Dec 2011 12:24:22

Suddenly Scottish Strikers are in Demand!

Jordan Rohodes - Everton, Newcastle, Wolves, Celtic, Aston Villa, Man U and many more interested.
Steven Fletcher - Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal all Linked to Fletch.
Robert Snodgrass - Wolves, Everton, Newcastle.
Ross McCormack - Wolves, Everton, Fulham, Newcastle.
mackail smith - Celtic, Hercules, Wigan, Aston Villa.

Striking options slowly getting better for the Scots.(6)(29)That's because most of them are better than the English st we call a striker (except Daniel sturridge)Strange , only one is proven premier league player.All of a sudden the future aint so bright,just like your post.The words were slowly getting better! Read and understand before passing comment eh!Can i just point out Snodgrass isn't a striker,

Everton, Fulham, Norwich, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Stoke and Wigan are all interested in signing him, Leeds are facing a battle to keep him in JanuaryStriking options slowly getting better. All you've gotta do now is find another 9 players who are better than the average 13yr old and you might win a game.Haha yeah cool so Adam, Fletcher, Bannan, Dorrans, Brown, McFadden, Morrison and Naismith for our midfield, Two or three cracking Keepers Shagger, Gordon and Gilks and to be fair a very poor defence but Still reckon we are on the up! Good point about Snodgrass - my apologies, shall we just include him in the midfield bracket then :)... Some awsome emerging talent coming through too in Forrest (Celtic), Feruz (Chelsae) and Harper (Real Madrid) but to mention a fewSnoddy and Ross are not going anywhere!!

MOTSnodgrass can play forward,but he normally plays as a attacking midfielderMackail Smith would be good for Villa, Rohodes i don't think would fit in thoughJamie Murphy at Motherwell is another striker.Who is being watched bye a host of EPL clubs.Spurs,Stoke,QPR,WBA,Wigan amongst themSome decent Scottish talent for the first time in my lifetime! Just a shame ur league is awful!EVERTON lol they cant afford to buy snoddys boots lol motThe league is awful as you describe not because their is no talent but because their is no money to keep the talent once we have it and they invevitibly end up down south

From a very good source; Carlos Tevez and David Beckham are set to return to Manchester United, David Beckham will be a 2 month Loan and Carlos Tevez is a £24 Million Move(16)(46)Tevez wont stay in England, Fergie will not take him backGood call cos tevez don't want to stay in Manchester so he keeps saying but being tevez u never know what going thought his head lol and , becks is interesting he comes out saying he will never manage or coach yet if he went back to man u would be more to help the younger players coming thought so that would be like a coaching role !When ever a rumour starts from a good source you know its made up nonsenseWho is this very good source? would be brilliant for Becks to come backFergie isnt stupid enough to take on a player of his temprement even if he was good last time round fergie is better than thatHasn't beck's contract finished at galaxy now?He does not like living in manchester, isnt that one of the reasons he wants to leave cityFergie wouldent take tevez back, who'se the source the daily star?lolLOL, prem sides only allowed to loan between windows, thats 6months minimum.


16 Dec 2011 10:49:45
Brighton & Hove Albion expected to make a move for Keith Andrews when the transfer window opens in January.(11)(7)Glad to see he has found his level.No chance, he's going lower prem team Swansea and Wigan expressed interested.

Source: Daily Mail(10)(12)What a load rubbishSure it,s not Emily NugentBwaaa! someone using the Daily Fail to justify posting a garbage rumour, funny stuff.HahaahahAm a pne fan and know it wont happen stop posting crapYou belive the tory comic?


16 Dec 2011 10:04:14
reports that Kevin Doyle is the subject of interest from Newcastle, and they are ready to bid 11m for the Wolves striker.(23)(9)Unfortunately Doyle is a great striker but he wouldn't move to Newcastle because he wants 1St team action and he is committed to wolves1st team action!!! and why on earth wouldnt he get in toons team SNB!Doyle is happy at Wolves. he wouldnt leave unless they were relegated or a top 6 club went in for him and since neither will happen I guess he is staying with the molineux men. ( from a stoke fan).Not getting Doyle - because your old carthorse wants to come back home from poolNewcastle havnt got £11m to spend.
Ashley wont part with that sort of money.It's pretty much a definate that wolves will get relegated this season, so we'll take fletcher and O'Hara off their hands pretty cheaply during the summer.


16 Dec 2011 09:55:35
Sol Campbell is about to make a return to Newcastle United to solve there defensive crisis. This could then lead to a coaching role at the end of the season, when he finally retires.(8)(23)I was starting to wonder where all the Sol Campbell rumours were. Good old Sol, can't hit a cows arse with a banjo but apparently the SOLution to every teams defensive problems.


16 Dec 2011 09:53:20
Stoke are planning a shock move for sulley muntari, this is due to Gleen Whelans planned move to swansea. :((15)(4)Glen Whelan is wanted by a host of clubs like Swansea, Wolves, Wigan, WBA, Norwich and Bolton and muntari isnt that good plus hes injury prone


16 Dec 2011 09:06:48
Coloccini has told the Newcastle board if Tiote is sold then he and another (not known) will hand transfer requests in and leave the Sports Direct Arena. Mike Ashley is ower the moon more money for his clothing empire.(20)(11)In all honesty if he sells him fair do's, i'm getting to the stage where i quite like Mike now as it seems he really has the club at heart financially and that represents a significant profit.If it is true, Newcastle will come down the table faster than they have gone up.I thought tiote was on loan?


16 Dec 2011 08:31:30
Steven Fletcher to Man UTD with Macheda being offered to Wolves on loan. MM has been spotted at UTD reserves apparently scouting Macheda and Gibson.(7)(27)Ahh this gave me something to laugh about not going to happen keep dreaming united supportersWill he be replacing rooney then?


16 Dec 2011 07:34:06
Sunderland wants to sign Jacob Butterfield from Barnsley and Albert Adomah from Bristol City. Lee Cattermole on his way to LFC(8)(18)I am a Barnsley fan and it is in the local paper, interview with butterfield, he is in no rush to leave and is also very out of form, he has had a bad 5 or 6 games in a row, tries to do too much in bad places..... if we get a big offer he can leave for me to be honest, concentrate on keeping steele, vaz te and davies and perkins. Use butterfield funds (at least 1.5m) to buy a good centre mid who can command the team.Adomah is worthy of a Prem team, but wouldnt wish to lose him. He has been the subject of much interest and BCFC would do well to hang on to him. He did sign a new 3 year deal in the summer, so would need to get a good price-Why would liverpool come in for lee cattermole there is so much better out there than him but if it is true lets up they pay way over the odds for him like they did carrol!How can that happen when you are skint


16 Dec 2011 07:23:30
Neal Bishop set to have talks with Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cotterril(6)(11)That be a good signing for us


16 Dec 2011 05:57:52
Ebanks Blake to Blackpool 750K or loan depending on Wolves ins and outs(12)(14)Admittedly SEB isnt quite a first teamer for Wolves so certainly a loan switch to blackpool might be a good career move to get back in amongst the goals however not on a permanent basis. Also he is worth at least 3 mil which I doubt Blackpool could afford as well as his 15k a week wages.You doubt they could afford 3mil ? you must be joking.
He isnt worth that amount anyway, coming to the end of his career, holloway has bought and sold him twice already so easy to tempt backEnd of career hes 25??

Di Canio is eyeing up around 5 other players to help replace these. Amongst his wish list are; Luke Rooney (Gillingham) James Constable (Oxford) Paul Benson (Charlton) Kane Hemmings (Rangers - Loan) and Harry Pell (Hereford)

Source: The Usual Guy(9)(8)There is a bit of truth to some of this, Foderingham will stay till end of the season or, we will buy him if palace will consider selling, Ridehalgh, will be loaned till end of the season. Magera, Comazzi, esejas and Cibboci will be on their way with Lanzano being released in Jan, common knowledge Clarke wont be here neither will Timlin, however Wycombe want to send Benyon back early as he is flopping for them... Also Murray will be extended and Benson will sign first week of Jan, PDC is very Keen on Kee and has started talks with Burton on the possibility of a Connell + Cash deal... Luke Rooney could also sign an agreement as he is out of contract in the summer.Oh and Ritchie is on his way to BurnleyI’m a Charlton supporter and know little of the players being mentioned. It seems to me that Swindon are going to get an awful lot of rumours as they rebuild. You might loose some good players and get some better in. Dont be down because people are looking jealously at your players take it as a complement and a stepping stone back up. I'm sure PDC will do a good job for you if given the time and patience he needs.

i have heard a rumour that we will be making a move for fraser forster in jan i have seen a lot of him at celtic in europe and he looks awesome(4)(14)And your club is?Only thing he has done is save one penalty, other than that he is rotten. Please get him out of Celtic ASAPSeason long loan nuff saidHe is linked to norwichAwesome more like awfulHe is no Boruc,that is for sure.Done well tonight but not consistent enough. doesn't come for crosses and very prone to mistakes. kicking is also poorWhen he was with us at Norwich we were in league 1, he was Awesome, but that was league 1, no disrespect to him or Celtic he is just not good enough for any club hire than Lg1, take a look at the SPL none of them clubs are any where near the Championship level, sorry but Scottish football is just not good enoughtStop getting on to the big man hes only as good as our defence and there rotten as much as alove boruc he made mistakes as well a think your all forgetting that. and a would like to see who you would prefer in goal then since we have no money to spendWhy do people post things and not even mention a team? Stupid!Ok then ... Rangers and celtic, two of the biggest clubs in britain, aren't as good as coventry or doncaster ... yet another English fool who overrates themselvesRangers and celtic, two of the biggest clubs in britain, aren't as good as coventry or doncaster ... yet another English fool who overrates themselves

15 Dec 2011 15:29:40
Charlton striker Bradley Wright-Phillips
has been strongly linked with a move to Rangers in the January transfer window.
Rangers were linked with the player in the summer but he was committed to sign for
However a great scoring run for Charlton
has came to the notice of Rangers manager Ally McCoist who is keen to
renew his interest in the player.(14)(19)Another Lg1 player linked to Scotland, spl, level par lg1 or even lg2This will never happen, he is contracted to Charlton and will cost them 3m+!OK, Rangers are League 2 quality ... find me a league 2 team with a £10m + player and a 51k capacity stadium. Perhaps one that drew with man utd in the champions league.

Rangers FC - Third biggest club in britain ( after man utd and liverpool )Would be a great move for wright-philips and his dad is keen for him to make the move up to the big stage all the charlton knockers (prob plastic cockneys) should remember champions league and trophy's {Ed003's Note - I thought Rangers were after Neil Mellor ? }The player is nearing the end of what was a short initial deal, if we dont see a new contract then he could very well leave. Having said that where would Rangers get the money? They are almost as skint as Pompy, third biggest or not. No money no player!

Manchester United are readying a bid for Roma contract rebel Daniele de Rossi. 6 months left on his contract. Would be a great addition for Utd.
Also Man Utd will make a £20m January bid for Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell(34)(31)That could be true because Man Utd need to strengthen that midfieldNo chance due to di Rossi's wage demands.Rodwell an di rossi will sign in january rodwell for £15 million and di rossi for £20 to hold the team up for the time being giving some breathin space while we cleanup the injury list {Ed025's Note - rodders will cost more than £15m..Why would we go for Rodwell, he isnt even that good, i wouldent pay 6mil for him let alone 20.Rodwell is a good prospect and better than Gibson, Park, Fletcher and Anderson. I would get him but pay no more than 20m for himRodwell is a big future prospect but looking at Evertons form and squad they will be reluctant to let him leave. £20M is realistic due to circumstances. No chance De Rossi, Fergie wont take crap"Roma contract rebel Daniele de Rossi"


sure i have heard that in Football ManagerThis might come as a shock but man utd was not struggling to win with Anderson in side fact good play fact but out now cleverly the buggers miss for Manu fact , but rossie and Rodwell fergie has said his self he a big big fan of both players , and as for saying rodwell not worth more than 6 mil sort it out 15 will get him tho

Sunderland to sign Jose Leonardo Ulloa - Almeria, Ola John - Twente and Kamel Ghilas from Reims.(8)(13)Ola John looks a prospectKamel Ghilas is only on loan at Reims, he's a Hull City player.Highly unlikely to be in for kamel ghilas. hes there on loan from hull city coz cant cut it in championship. that and his premier wages. but never got a look in here even with the st we had infront of him.

to me jelly is the onlyone of the trio who can improve

Jelavic will go if someone offers the 10mm Rangers have already stated as their valuation.Utter garbage, no source no truth, end ofNobody in there right mind will pay 10 million for jelly baby

southampton football club set to make an for the young Mönchengladbach and german goalkeeper who last year won young goalkeeper of the year the 19 year old is expected to sign a 5 year deal for fee of arounf £3 million(17)(16)I suspect this is a wind up as the keeper in question made a Bart style gaff in the U23 game this week - Janis Blaswich I think his name is.


15 Dec 2011 12:46:10
middlesbrough will listen to offers for matthew bates in january with swansea interested, boro want £1.5m for their captain. however boro will gamble on tony mcmahon, barry robson, justin hoyte whose contracts are all up at the end of the season as they look to get back into the premier league. tony mowbrays top priority is to bring a striker in with jutkiewicz, becchio, arnaud and havenaar all mentioned. boro face competition from southampton for jutkiewicz, becchio's price tag will be too high for boro's budget , arnaud and havenaar will be available for no more than £500,000 so they are boro's more realistic targets(8)(8)


15 Dec 2011 12:18:41
is there any truth about
time cahill or leighton baines coming stoke?(9)(25)No, Stoke only sign Spurs rejects!Cahill is a possibility but Baines not so muchYeah...... sat 14th april 2012 3pm kick off they'll be the ones wearing blueCahill was subject of 8m bid from Stoke in august, which was only rebuked because arteta went to arsenal. There is a growing rumour in Stoke that a undisclosed fee has been agreed with everton 4 baines and it now down to the player. Baines would b the left back we have been crying out 4 {Ed025's Note - keep the crying going...hes going nowhere!A bold statement Ed025, I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss this one. Everton have financial pressures and if they want to compete in the transfer Market then they will have to sell 1st. Baines huth shawcross wilkinson what a Stoke rear guard that would be {Ed025's Note - it would be good mate..but baines would cost £25m, and i cant see you paying that..Lets put this one to bed nop there is no realistic truth whatsoeverIf Baines was going to leave (which I doubt) it would be for a better team than Stoke.

He's CL standardSame applies for cahill he is way better than stoke city


15 Dec 2011 11:32:37
Four players are set to leave Wolves in the January transfer window as Mick McCarthy looks to make space and funds for new signings.
Sam Vokes, who is currently on loan at Burnley, will sign a loan deal with Cardiff. The Championship side are keen to recruit in the attacking positions after losing so many to other clubs in the last few years. Vokes could sign permanently if the Welsh side manage to get into the top flight.
Michael Kightly, who is also on loan elsewhere at Watford, will sign a loan deal with Sheffield United. United are keen to tie down the winger to help regain his fitness for nest season. Kightly will sign a new deal before he leaves so he knows where is future is at.
Andy Keogh could make a surprise move to the USA. The Republic of Ireland striker is on loan at Leeds at the moment but is keen on a different challenge and could join MLS side San Jose Earthquakes.
Serbian international Nenad Milijas could be surprise departure. The midfielder will join German side Stuttgart. The former Red Star Belgrade player is keen on starting fresh in another country and is set to sign a three year deal.(0)(23)Keogh told Yorkshire radio he wanted to join us permanentlyLikely to be out for 6 months, which would still be more productive than Torres.This is utter crap keogh has said publicly he wants to join leeds on a permanent deal and why would vokes and kightley want to change their loan club whgen they are settling in nicely AL


15 Dec 2011 11:17:40
Barcelona are apparently closing in on two Chelsea youngsters in Sam Monjack and Charlie Colkett. The two are said too be very technically gifted, and would suit the Spanish game.(11)(16)

Next month will be the key to harrys plan a few in's and out's.


KaKa Loan till end of seasson
Berbatov 12 milion


Pav 8 million
Huddlestone 7 million
dos santos 6 million
gomez 5 million

Fingers crossed this is true(25)(26)Sorry mate but berbatov, no mater how good he was at the lane, will not be welcomed back!Huddlestone will not be leaving, he is still out injuredPav we will only get about 6for i would take it huddlestone needs to prove fitness . i would have berbatov back he was happy playing here and playing at his best5million for Gomez?!7 million for huddlestone?? The guys crockedYou cant pay the wages for your other loan sighning so why would kaka come to you of all clubs he would go to chelseaOracle, are you at it again!!I think you missed a figure in front of Huddlestone's price but either way he's not going anywhere, one because Harry loves him and two he won't be fit until FebI'd love Berba back and so would many Spurs fans, I don't know why you assume he wouldn't be welcome back, some might not but loads would love to see him backTrying to win the league with loan signings whose wages they can't afford to pay?! Where would Kaka play in Spurs team anyway with Modric and Van Der Vaart?Kaka is not coming thats like saying barca want van persi and are trading messi for him


15 Dec 2011 09:50:19
David Templeton and Andrew Driver to Rangers in Jan.(9)(20)Cant see much being done until the tax case is finalised.Getting these players for nothing In Jan would in turn generate a selling on Value of around 2 million pounds each a year down the Line! This denotes good business and therefore Mr Whyte may allow the transfers. Carlos Cuellar also on cards to come back to Ibrox!Might happen cos of the crisis at hearts. wood be good for free but would nae pay 1.5 mil for them.. especially driverNo chance of david templeton signing for the rankers as he is celtic madHardly celtic mad his middle name is "Cooper"His dad Is rangers mad and named him after davie cooper but his mums a celtic fan ... but common sense would prevail and he would join the team that wins things


15 Dec 2011 09:20:48
Manchester United have no choice but to reinforce in jan due to the unfortunate extended break that Fletch has to take and the obvious Striker crisis going on at the club. With that in mind Sir Alex has 4 players on his transfer list of which he will sign two.

Midfielders: Kaka and wesley sneijder
Strikers: Steven Fletcher and Lukas Padolski

FYI The Man U man!(14)(37)I think spurs get first option on madrid cast off's due to madrid having first refusal on bale, so kaka could, COULD, go to spurs on loan?Fletcher is not gd enough for united lets be realBe real - what Is Berba, Hernandez and Rooney performing better? Only Striker better at the moment in the EPL than Fletcher is RVP - FACT!Lol!!!!! Steven fletcher?? And why would united buy kaka?? And wes? Both attack minded? Get off football managerAbove post awesome Fletcher is better than Rooney ha haSaid performing better - not a better player! Ok so Who have Man U signed Who is of Wes/Kaka Class recently? Fletch is a 20 goal a season Striker when In a team Like UTD. Man U fans need to face reality - your not the Daddy's of the EPL anymore!Utd do need a new creative player. Berba is class but not consistent enough and I think too much is expected of Rooney and Hernadez. Yes they are on big bucks and fans should expect performances but the imagination and creativity has gone. Most importantly, get rid off Johhny LIABILITY Evans


15 Dec 2011 08:04:37
Lots of rumours starting to spread around Molinuex. Expect no major leavers in the window. Wolves are preparing themselves for bids for Fletcher but will fend them off. Fletcher is in the same boat as all other first team squad members who have been told that there situations will be reviewed IF Wolves were to be relegated. Therer are plans in place to spend during this window ans sources say around £10m is available to MM if he wants it. Diame of Wigan is a definate target, as is McCormack at Leeds. Wolves are also hoping to use the loan market with a move for a foreign striker currently playing with a La Liga side in Spain already set up. But no name as yet. MM has also been seen at numerous reserve fixtures involving the Top 4 clubs. Moves for fringe players at both Arsenal and Man Utd are possible, with Frimpong and Macheda thought to be the 2 possible players in question. It will be a busy month no doubt. Hope that we can bring in some quality. We will need it in depth for the long winter ahead.(5)(12)I hope we get Diame & the Spanish league striker & a defender.COYW

Swindon Town are set for a massive overhaul after manager Paolo Di Canio declared the club could go bankrupt if certain players don't leave in the transfer window.
Goalkeeper Phil Smith is subject of a undisclosed bid from Championship side Brighton. Gus Poyet is keen on some more compeition in the goalkeeping spot and could see a bid of around £120,000 accepted by the cash strapped League 2 side.
Former Celtic youngster Simon Ferry, is currently in talks with League 1 highflyers Charlton. Ferry is keen on testing himself in the Championship and sees promotuion with Athletic as vital for the seond half of the season.
Club captain Paul Caddis, who also joined from Celtic, is subject of a undisclosed offer from Hibernian. Caddis is rumoured to be wanting a move back to Scotland to play back in the SPL and sees a deal to 'Hibs' as something he wouldn't be able to turn down.
22 year old defender Callum Kennedy, who has rumoured to be in talks over the last few weeks with a number of League 1 and Championship sides, is in talks with Bury. Bury boss Richie Barker is keen on bringing the defender to the North West and could see a deal signed even before the 1st of January on a pre contract.
18 year old forward Jordan Pavett, who was known for signing a contract with Town after a sucessful trial in January this year, is in talks with League 2 riuvals Aldershot. Dean Holdsworth is keen on signing the former Ipswich youngster after Pavett was told he can leave Swindon for free during the transfer window.
Will Evans, who is currently on loan at Hereford, is subject of a loan bid from rivals Bristol Rovers.
Another player set to leave the club, who is currently out on loan is Billy Bodin. Bodin is on loan at Torquay and is interesting a number of clubs, including Championship side Peterborough. Manager Darren Ferguson is interested in the potential of the Wales under 21 striker and could see a deal of around £200,000 accepted.
The last player set to leavel Town is Italian defender Alessandro Cibocchi. The former Torino player is expected to join Serie B side Ancona.(7)(12)Total rubbish Oxford fans trying a wind up. Dont believe any of the rubbish written here.Utter crap!!!! we will not sell any of our best players
Poxford best watch out second time around we will batter you on and off the pitch
your looking pretty sitting in 10th by the wayObviously dont know the team well enough to make up a decent rumour do you my little yellow friend, Ferry loves it at town FACT, Caddis Captain, loves it at Town FACT, Kennedy not going anywhere you should have made up more about our financial situation, only last week Wray came out and said he will release funds for PDC to buy up to 5 players in Jan...... some players will be leaving, but only players who aren't wanted !What a load of rubbish swindon have one of the richest boards in englandWell the comment about swindon having one of the richest boards is rubbish they arent rich but by all means arent poor!Don't know why people are saying Swindon are in money troubles? Utter bullocks if you ask me. League 1 for the Town!Do your homework my Yellow friends if you look at the owners of STFC you will see theur wealth.

Hard luck try another ficticious story.First part of this rumour is laughable, Smith , ferry Caddis and Kennedy going nowhere....Pavett , evans , Cibocchi yes , Bodin probably notLeague 1? Can't see you making the play offs personally

Jimmy Bullard is set to leave Ipswich Town in January after an argument with manager Paul Jewell. Bullard had a disagreement after a number of players slagged the former Fulham player off about his wages to Jewell and his boss seemed to agree with them. Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay seems to be in the race for Bullard for a loan deal with a possible permanent deal until the end of the season.(16)(6)Jimmy Bullard to join Cardiff City on loan until July 2012 with a permanent deal in mind.This is because whittenham is to be sold in the jan windowWould,nt touch him with a bargepole ,my mate an ipswich fan tells me he causes
dressing room unrest as very high opinion of
himself,my opinion vasly overated and deffo
overpaidHe did score two crackers against you last year didnt he?If as some of you are suggesting Bullard has a big ego and causes problems ,i don't think MM would sign him as he seems to want everyone together.He does not cause problems at all he's the most popular player in the dressing room

14 Dec 2011 19:14:39
As a Liverpool Fan . I would be disgusted if we where thinking about paying anywhere near 10 million for Jelavic . He plays for a club in financial trouble who may be in big trouble . He has scored 12 goals this season but 5 have come from the penalty spot and we have 2 fantastic penalty takers in Gerrard & Adams . He is no where near a 10 million striker . I would be asking some questions about king kenny if we pay that sort or money as i think we payed well over the odds for Danny Wilson when he had less than a year to go on his contract.

I think 10 million would could spend 10 million on a better quality player. Jelavic is a 6 million striker at most and the only Rangers player i would take would be the Goalie as i think Reina will move on soon.

some people just post total crp as i dont think anyone in the scottish league would be classed anywhere near 10 million.(12)(31)I've got to disagree with you about Jelavic. Nobody in Scotland or England thought Charlie Adam was a £10m player and look at him now. A player is only worth what a club want to pay for him.
FF81Jelavics doing more than lanky carrol 35mil is a joke and your moaning about 10milI don't think there's a player for Liverpool worth 10 million lolIm a celtic fan but i think jelavic is a cracking player, its not all about the goals with him he creates alot an has a great work rate, pool payed 35m for caroll an what has he done? if jejevic could do that playing with the likes of edu etc i cant imagine the impact he would have with service from the likes of gerrard etcTotally agree with original post, the top TEN players in the scottish sunday league are not worth 10m in total.I don't believe any player is worth 10m outside maybe messi and ronaldo but English teams are dictating the price for a player. When you have average players like Henderson going for 20+m and 35m for that big did Carroll that would tell me that jelavic and forrest are worth way more than 10m. I would rate hooper in that category.Adams? Tony?Clearly not many fans of the SPL, i would be happy if Liverpool signed Jelavic, cracking finnisher and i think he could be the perfect foil for Luis Suarez, there are a lot of good players in the SPL though, to name a few, Steve Dacis, Steven Naismith, Alan McGregor, Lee Wallace, Darren Cole, anthony stokes, gary hooper, Ki, Kayal, Izaguire, james Forrset, Zaliukas, , David Tempelton, Fyvie, Andy Webster, Graeme Shinnie, Danny Swanso, all of theese could play in the premier league, at varying levels of course, but certanily Davis, Izaguire, Ki, kayal, Jelavic and McGregor could all play in top 10/8/6 teams,Really Liverpool to pay over the odds for average players? never!!!I am the origional poster.
Carrol is a waist of space who is not worth a fraction of the 35 million payed but that does not take away that jelavic is not worth 10 million.

he's playing for a club from which i hear are so badly in trouble from HMRC that if found guilty which is the most likely outcome they could go out of buisness by the end of the season as they would not be able to pay the tax bill.

For what i have read on the internet the case will end 16th jan 2012 so any club wanting a rangers player would be mad to make an offer before then.

As for Jelavic he has scored 25 goals in 70 games for Rapid Vienna and 12 this season for rangers 5 from the spot . and only 2 for croatia thats not worth 10 million.CRAP RUMOUR BUT IT DOESNT MATTER WHERE U PLAY ITS HOW GOOD U R DALGLISH HANSEN LARRSON AND THE MOST UNDERETIMATED STIKER IN THE EPL STEVEN FLETCHERYou know nothing. How many times have you watched him?To base a value on a player mainly based on the league he plays in is utter pxsh! Big Jelly n Suarez would have 50-60 goals between them a season. Granted he's been a bit off the boil but he's coming back onto a game. When his confidence is high and playing with a better standard of player i think he could be a world class striker!A club can put any value they like on a
player if some one wants to pay is a different nmatterJelavic and suarez would tear up the defences in the epl, didn't liverpool once pay 20 million for keane? how did that go? 11 million for heskey? was that worth it for a player who scored less goals in 70 odd international caps than 2 goalkeepers scored in about the same amount. he is a goal scorer but he also holds the ball up well, has great close control and can also score with both his feet and his head. at the end of the day if rangers asking price is 10 million thats what you will have to pay to get himHenrik Larsson played for Celtic....does that mean that he wouldn't have been worth 10m in his prime as well? He's proven at both club and international level! I agree with the earlier post about Dalglish, Larsson & Hansen (I'll add Souness to that too)....if you're good enough, it doesn't matter where you're playing. Every player has to make a name for himself somewhereIm a Rangers & Liverpool fan and if Jela was to leave, I hope he goes to Anfield. He is a top drawer player, although admittedly playing in a sub-standard league. If the likes of Boumsong, Van Bronkhorst, Craig Gordon all left for 8-10m, Jela is defo worth that much. The original poster said that although Liverpool paid 35m for Carroll, it doesn't mean Jela is worth're right, it makes him worth about 50m lol. I do think Carroll could become a top player but Jela would be a quality foil for Suarez until Carroll proves his worth.Im a rangers fant but james forrest for celtics worth £12mil at least twice as good as henderson and pool paid 20Liverpool paid 35 million for a carroll who hardly plays international football behind rooney, crouch etc jelavic is a regular international and is all round a quality player! Rangers played Liverpool earlier this season and carroll started. Ross perry made carroll look like mince tbh, although a friendly carroll did nothing.ANDY CARROL! JORDAN HENDERSON! ROBBIE KEANE ... IT WOULDN'T BE THE FIRST TIME THEY OVERPAYED ... plus they payed £6m for bellamy and Jelavic is twice the player he is {Ed001's Note - Bellamy bought his contract out and moved on a free and Jelavic is not even half the player he is anyway.}Players who play in the spl are extremely under estimated! jelavic is a quality player, iam a celtic fan and when it was the old firm games i knew jelavic was the danger! snodgrass was in the scottish first division when he moved to england and look at him now! be serious guys!

Billy sharp of doncaster rovers is subject to a bidding war thought to be between aston villa and wolves. The two midlands clubs are both keen to add sharp to their squads.
Aston villa are thought to be offering doncaster 3.1 million plus emile heskey on loan until the end of the season.
wolves are thought to be offering doncaster 3.25 million plus shot stopper carl ikeme who is currently on loan at rovers(12)(22)I dont know why you have made this ridiculous rumour up. Wolves already have Seb, doyler and fletcher, as well as keogh and vokes onloan for back up they dont need to buy players in the championship. doubt villa need him either get a grip of yourself!Keogh is making his move permanent to Leeds in January, vokes is staying at burnley and fletcher says he is happy to move to a bigger club plus wolves have made a temporary agreement with Doncaster for sharp so it's you that needs to get a grip!!All is true a part from Fletcher saying he wants to go to a bigger club.Villa have Djalo coming , we don't need rubbish championship strikers!`Heskey off back to leicester. hull city also in for billy sharpAlthough andy keogh and billy sharp were awesome together at Scunthorpe.At Wolves he would be guaranteed first team action and at villa he wouldn't
Doncaster need a keeper so ikeme would be a great addition to dony


14 Dec 2011 18:23:56
Stoke City are keen and willing to pay £7 million for burnley's Jay Rodriguez(12)(18)If true it convinces me more that what i have believed for years is true
football really has lost the plotAll these Jay Rod rumours are kind of ridiculous, he is an average Championship level striker at best. Not worth even 5 million in my books.


14 Dec 2011 18:11:47
Wolves Team After January Transfer Window:

New Formation: 4-3-3


Back 4:



Subs for each position:
GK-De Vries
Strikers-Vokes/Doyle/Ebanks-Blake(9)(40)You are clearly deluded , and I am a Wolves fan.Why is he/she deluded i think this could be right however jelavic may cost a bit much for wolves, another Wolves fanSo six attackers, with four defenders? you'd lose everygame, going forward you're not too bad, although Doyle needs to score more . You need to toughen up defensively, so at least two defenders are needed.Don't think this is from a wolves fan ridgewell at right back we have better right backs already I.e foley forde isn't a centre back he's a winger. Jelavic would never come here either.You have hardly got the money for Snodgrass.Who is valued as much as Jelavic.And he is on the bench.For Hammell a guy that cost half a million.This is why the person is deluded.And your not getting Jeleavic.We turned down 9 million for Liverpool for him.Why would he want to play for Wolves,who are nowhere near as big?And I am a Rangers fanI can see it, although Whelen would be a good signing, would he leave Stoke now Delap is on verge of retiring?! Jelavic would command a fee of about £7-13 Million, would Mick pay that when he got Fletcher, Doyle and Blake. He even let Vokes go out on loan to Burnley.
And I could go on.... especially craddock over Johnson? overall I agree with the previous post.The reason I say he / she is deluded is that according to that Wolves will sign seven players in the transfer window.This is not possible , bearing in mind the kind of money Rangers want for their striker.We need our defence sorted out and another DMF for when Henry is injured or to replace Henry in the long term.Its deluded on all levels. 1. Ridgwell is a LB 2. Why would we play 2 wingers and 3 strikers?? 3. Forde isnt a CB. the whole thing is laughable and that is before you get on to the names mentioned. From a wolves fan.Wish people would stop uploading their football manager teams on herePlus foley is back in the new year


14 Dec 2011 17:36:58
Phil Browns job became untanable at PNE(17)(9)Untanable? So he was unable to get a good colour? - Maybe he should have spent longer on the sunbed!? I think you mean Untenable! ;-)


14 Dec 2011 17:32:39

It's true. Apparently he stayed for a week in a caravan at Bridlington during the summer. He liked it that much he want's to play for Brid Town. If Bridlington turn him down he will try for Grimsby as it is close to his next favourite caravan site - Cleethorpes.(41)(17)Heard the exact same thing whilst I was in Simon's Souvenirs buying a stick of rock!Thought he was after joining up with dean windass at scarborough?

Wolves look to be facing tough competition from Everton and Newcastle to confirm the signature of Jelavic. Rangers are supposedly going to sell the striker for a fee of 10-20 million however only Wolves have been allowed to approach the striker.

Expect Jelavic to light up the premier league wherever he goes(4)(17)Why only Wolves ?Bull$hite jelavic the penalty king he wont get a game for wolves nevermind liverpoolU MATE WANT TO STAY CLEAR OF THAT BOOZE 20 MILL RFC ARE IN MELTDOWN U COULD GET JELLYFISH FOR 4 MILL IF U PYCRIN REPLY TO COMMENT 3

No, Jelavic would only move for a top 5 EPL team [from Jelavics mouth] and Rangers are accepting no less than £10m [from ally mccoists mouth]. Hmmm ... two of the main parties or you ... who to believe?


14 Dec 2011 17:29:28
Their is a rummer around the east stand at the hawthorns that due to sharner and odemwingie falling out with hogson due to their blast in their papers that hogson is after walters and palcios from stoke as replacements.(4)(12)All true I am afraid , Roy has upset some snr squad members.You actually spelt the most difficult word in this post correctly!!Walters is the 1st name on stoke's team sheet, I would hate to think how much he would cost 10m+, palacios is still struggling with fitness and his Stoke career hasn't got off the ground. This rumour is someone having a stefi Graf


14 Dec 2011 17:26:14
Out of favour Jimmy Bullard will be on his way out of Ipswich very soon. The highly paid but injury prone player is rapidly falling out of favour at the club and even some of his fellow players want to see the back of him. The last straw was his bust up with Paul Jewell over his refusal to relocate from his Cobham home(20)(9)Paul Jewell and Jimmy have rubbish this rumour publically already. Utter dross from a Budgie he has been dropped to bench due to his poor form and lack of fitnessWho cares? he's rubbish anyway


14 Dec 2011 17:04:12
Newcastle will be looking to sign up to 5 players in the January transfer window with Smith, Perch and Forster being sold on.

Obertan Cabaye Tiote Gutierrez
Ben Arfa Maiga/Ba(13)(14)Tomkins aint going to happen nice tryYouve had your time at the top downhill now pards will lose the team spirit and youll finish bottom half of the tableNewcastle will finish in the top half of the table not like some of the crap teams pretending they are premier league standard when they are notMaiga has failed his medical and therefore wont be joining us. Keep an eye out for a bid for zaha from Palace!Why would we want tomkins? and why isn't Demba Ba in 'our starting XI' after january, yeah that's right the lad who's already got 2 hatricks in the prem this season.

Liverpool are lining up a january move for wolves striker steven fletcher who would be available in the region of 9 million. Kenny dalglish is also targeting wigan striker hugo rodellaga.
Chelsea are pondering to list waste of space striker fernando torres for £20 million. People who think he is going back to liverpool think again. most liverpool fans wouldnt want him back because of what he said when he left the club
LFC 4 lyf(16)(20)Torres swap for hazaard is my solution
rodallega would be a waste of money because he wont score and will stay on the bench and steven fletcher wouldnt get a 1st team place. Liverpool should target berbatov or zamora for strike forceFletcher worth 9 million, more like 19 millionFletcher was signed for £7.5 Million and has scored 16 in 23 games. I know Maths isn't a scousers strong point but surely you can work out he is around £15 Million + add onsBIG FLETCH 3TIMES THE PLAYER CARROLL IS WOLVES SHOULD ASK FOR 105 MILLION KING KENNY MADE 1 SERIOUS MISTAKE ON THAT PLONKERIf Fletchers worth 19m I must be worth at least a 1m and Im rubbish!

Strong rumours with the club Keith Vaz is to buy top out the club as chairman has had enough with club under performing 20 mill is the rumoured amount(6)(8)I take it this is leicester city, i also heard this todayShould'nt this be on the banter page, mr vaz is worth about 20P, still it made me chuckle i suppose.I am both a colleague and an aquaintance of Mr Keith Vaz MP, and i can assure you that his personal wealth is'nt anywhere near that figure, and apart from that Mr Vaz is'nt even a big football fan and has no intention whatsoever of trying to buy Leicester City or any other club for that matter, in fact, Mr Vaz would be the man voted "The LEAST likely" to buy a stake in a football club of any kind.Spent all his money on silk cushions , no hang on ,that was money from his expenses, so he must still be loaded


14 Dec 2011 16:02:33

Every chance Jelavic could go for 10M. Signed for best part of 5M was it? Oh and with the exception of McGregor, not scottish players, only based there just now pal(first reply)Many english need to stop comparing the spl to the championship or league 1. If they were all so succesful they would be a champions league winner and europa league who should both be english due to the stupid amount given for sponsors. The spl is given nothing for sponsors. If celtic and rangers were in the epl they would be easily in top 7/8 due to sponsors, do players values just triple for being in the epl? Seems to be. Example, Andy Carrol.

Four players will leave Rangers in January as the cash strapped Scottish champions look to spend money when they sell and also ease financial problems.
USA midfielder Maurice Eu could sign a two and a half year deal with Italian side Chievo after they had a £4 million bid accepted. Edu is also keen on testing himself at a higher level than Scotland and sees Italy as his next step.
Croatia striker Nikica Jelavic, wanted by a number of top clubs, is subject of a £8 million bid from Tottenham. Harry Redknapp is keen on signing the striker as he sees him as the nideal striker partner for Rafael van der Vaart.
Northern Ireland midfielder Steven Davis is subject of a £4.5 million bid from West Brom but it is unsure whether Rangers will accept.
Goalkeeper Allan McGregor, who is wanted by a host of top European clubs, is in talks with Aston Villa after the Premier League side had a £11 million bid accepted late on Sunday night.(4)(23)Don't think villa are going to pay 11m for a mediocre keeper.Whered you get this junk from? shagger hasnt had a bid accepted, neither has mo, jella is likely at about 8mil but the rest sounds a load of old tosh.Please go back to playing your football manager tommy and concentrate on your own club,as stated in newspapers rangers are offering new contract to edu and possibly jelavicWhy would villa want mcgregor when they have a much better keeper in shay given.Total rubbish4 mill for edu ur nuts pal

Southend united transfers?(1)(15)Shown the door:

Mohsni Bilel - last nights red card the final straw
Anthony Grant - lost it with Southend seriously needs a move
Kane Ferdinand - sold to Derby County or West Ham
JJ - shown the door, not wanted
Blair Sturrock - time's up, not delivered
Matt Paterson - wanted back at Stockport or various Scottish clubs
Ryan Hall - Sold to the biggest bidder
Harry Crawford - shown the door, not wanted

Coming In:

Timlin from Swindon - maybe, could be another club in for him now

I think that Sturrock will be left with a skeleton squad to see him through to the end of the season.Can't disagree and you can add to the list Lee Sawyer - shown the door, not given the chance to playHall wont be sold nor Kane. Where did you get that crap from?

West Ham intrested in Kane has died so he wont be going.

Hall is loving life at Southend and wants to see out his contract, this was from a sky interview.

Grant wont go either, the rest ill bar Sawyer.


14 Dec 2011 09:01:56
Paolo Di Canio has set his sights on Billy Kee from Burton and Luke Rooney,with Constable as a fall back option,Town will offer Connell in the deal to sign Kee. The club will sell Clarke to colchester, Timlin to Southend and Bodin to Torquay, expect Commazzi to have his contract Cancelled, Lanzano leaving in Jan, Magera and Esejas to also be offloaded. Jervis to return to Birmingham at the end of his loan, PDC is also keen to extend the loans of Ridehalgh and Fodderingham if they are unable to sign them on permanent deals.

The club wont sell Ritchie, caddis or flint unless the bids are silly money.(6)(9)Think we might have missed out a couple more that are on their way out, what about Devera, Thompson, Risser, Kerouche?Kerrouche wont go Risser maybe and i cant see Thompson going. I think a few clubs will be afterThe Burton striker. Cant see Di canio clearing out as many as you say i can see Magera-Risser-Jervis will go back top Birmingham unless we can get him for the rest of the season. I understand Burnley are going to bid for Ritchie and i cant see Flint going its his first season in league football but no doubt he is going to play at a higher level.


14 Dec 2011 08:57:43

Atletico Madrid are very close to signing Jeremy Mathieu from La Liga rivals Valencia. Valencia are looking to sell a number of players in January and the summer in order to try and sign Fernando Torres from Chelsea as they cannot yet afford the transfer fee.(9)(6)Rubbish, with Valencia's debts they could not afford to fund a move for Torres I also cant see them selling Mathieu as he has been a key player for them. Ath Madrid are also in somewhat of a form crisis as well whereas Valencia are 3rd in la liga

I was in carnaby street in london on monday and alan pardew walks past me talking about christopher samba on the phone.

apparently Newcastle have defence issues at the moment so this could make sence if the rumours are true about blackburn offloading players to raise funds?(10)(24)U fool, people make some trash up on here mind.I was in oxford street yesterday and saw paddington bear on the phone talking about what an person you are....It could well be made up but i reckon Samba would jump at the chance to get away from the sinking shipSamba, Cahill, Bassong all linked to the Toon, not suprised really. I'd take any of the above at the mo!Lol why would I lie on here? I might be wrong if I am then sorry! But he was standing right next to me when he said it!Why would Pardew talk about confidental targets in public? and if he did why would he refer to the player by name in a public place? also Newcastle with their owners would not sanction a high value transfer which it would take to get him in Jan. I think the guy who posted this is making this up!

West Ham have launched a bid to sign Japanese international Ryoichi Maeda, according to reports emanating from the Far East.

Nikkan Sports report that the Hammers have offered the striker, who spent his formative years in the United States and is currently contracted to J-League side Jubilo Iwata, a two-year contract.

However the major stumbling block appears to be Maeda's lack of involvement at interntional level in the last two years. A player must have featured in more than 75 per cent of his country's competitive fixtures during that period but Maeda has not fulfilled that particular criteria.

30-year-old Maeda is set to become a free agent shortly once his two year contract at the Yamaha Stadium expires. His availablility has also sparked interest from a number of fellow J-League clubs but he is thought to favour a move to Europe.

The player is said to have been watched by West Ham scouts when he featured in Japan's recent 4-0 World Cup qualifying win in Tajikistan last month. On as a second half substitute, he scored the third of Japan's four goals.(15)(14)

Harry Redknapp has stated he is no longer interested in becoming the next England manager , it was between him & Roy Hodgson.With new contracts having stalled in the past with WBA & Hodgson.Hodgson is the clear favourite to be the new England manager after the 2012 European Championship.Steve Bruce is being touted as the next WBA manager as well as Rafa Benitez.(13)(25)Oh dear another Dingle trying to stir it. Harry said he was not interested in the job "at the moment". Bruce is going into sports training at Preston and Rafa would never go to the Hawthorns as we couldn't pay him enough!No way will Roy be leaving us ay it.I core believe dat Roy wud leave us ,Baggies ay we!Yeah right who you kidding? Redkrapp would bite the FAs hand off to become England manager for sure gov....Hodgson is rubbish , he can't manage on the big stage!Roy wud be gerat for the Englund job ay he.Not what Harry said at all, Levy just mentioned Harry's thoughts at this momentIf hodgson is new england manager were fed in europe let alone the world

liverpool have offerd around 22m for wolves top goal scorer steven fletcher. he has banged in 15 in 22 starts and he has the highest shots to goal ratio in the world ATM(13)(38)22mill for fletcher 45 mill for xavi are you
going to sell anfield to fund itFreddie and the Dreamers were from Liverpool.Wrong , Ronaldo has the best goal - game ratio.Wrong - he didn't say game to goal ratio he said goal to shot ratio. Try reading it properly instead of trying to be cocky.22 million is about right for a player of his quality, but only if your liverpool, all other clubs would pay 5 million...By that math, andy caroll is actually worth close to 8mil. still waaaay too much!


13 Dec 2011 14:45:34
Chelsea and AVB look like they will be busy this January.
With Anelka already gone and Juve favourites to land Alex, Chelsea have already lined up replacements with a 7m bid plus Josh Mcecheran on loan for Gary Cahill from Bolton.
Plus an 8m bid for Chilean striker Vargas who will be loaned back to his club until June.
Another player who could be allowed to leave is Solomon Kalou, with Marseille very keen.
Which might mean a surprise bid for long-term target Pato.
Whatever deals are completed AVB is already looking at possible comings and goings.
Malouda, Hilario, Ferreria, kalou, and Drogba will leave and targets include Modric, Mountinho,Thiago, Hazrad and Shaquiri.
Exciting times ahead for Chelsea supporters.(9)(17)Modric will stay at spurs if they make CL next year.I didn't realise we were linked with Shaquiri? Even still i think Higuain should be added to the list, i believe he has been offered to us? Or something along those lines, whatever the situation i believe he is a target for us.And we've been linked with supposebly xavi and hulk

I don't usually go for wild speculation however apparently there is some truth that Torres may return to Liverpool on loan. The loan will be short tern as FSG are not to sure about him, given his drop in form.

Apparently both sides are testing the water however Chelsea will only loan the player out as there hope is that he rediscovers his scoring form, has a good Euro and then moves on.

I have not heard about Torres being unhappy at Chelsea however I have heard that AVB wants to restructure the squad next season with the majority of players being under 25.

Also heard that Torres's agent was seen at Anfield but that the planned meeting did not take place due to illness.

A move back to Liverpool is a strong possibility.(25)(44)Anelka sold Drogba at the African Nations I doubt we will sell TorresHow can anelka sell drogba at the african nations????He will never go back to Liverpool, why would you want him back after saying he was so happy to move to a big club and fulfill his dreams. He was a bit derisory towards the Pool when he left, we dont want him back...I heard he was trying to flog Essien there as well, he had his own little football car boot thang, goin on !Yess....

12 Dec 2011 18:19:22
Saints will look to bring in 2 strikers in january, one will be permanent, the other will be a loan, permanently I'd love Charlie Austin, good proven championship goal scorer and he's only 22, on loan I'd like possibly Nick Blackman as he isn't a regular for Blackburn and he got a lot of pace which is what we lack up front. I'd also like Surman or Matt Phillips on the wing.(14)(19)Austin would do a job but that aint happeningTrouble with this rumour is that it's your very own rumour, straight from your little mind. You're not the boss or chairman!I'd like Messi, but am not sure we could play both him and Lallana...

More importantly I'd like some decent beer at half time... that's the signing I'm looking for, not that rubbish in a plastic bottle.So Saints fans who were slating Austin last season as they said he wasnt good enough for them now want him. He will end up one of the best strikers in the championship and is already the leading scorer at Burnley despite being out for a while with a shoulder injury caused by Kelvin Davies last season who inentionally took him out to injure him.Not sure how much of what you've written is true there^^Why does every southampton fan think that they are gonna get surman from norwich ? Why would he return to the championship when he's playing regularly in the prem.Ohh what a bitter Burnley fan.What does inentionally mean ?? a saints fan I like Austin, and cannot ever remember dissing him......COYRsAw diddums,it's a contact sport and sometimes clumsy contact is made by players of all teams.Grow up,things even out in the end.Your obviously a saints fan but Austin has a great habit of scoring against Saints and loved playing you lot when he played for us. we dicovered him you laughed at us at the time and now you want him. How the turncoat saints fans turn.No, he's a bitter Swindon fan talking carp and just 'cos 1 or 2 Saints fans want Surman for some reason, it doesn't mean the rest of us do. Personally, ignoring Walcott, Chamberlain and Bale, i think the return of Best, Mills (Leicester) and Blackstock would be more useful at the moment but bow to the far greater knowledge and experience of the great Nigel Adkins.Adkins is great at the moment as things are going for you but i still dont think you will go up automatically, you make make the play offs but i reckon you will end up 7th or 8th. If you did go up is Adkins the right man for the premier league as to me he is a Championship manager at best.20th in league 1 when appointed to top of the championship 12 months later. His sacked predecessor is now manager of Newcastle. He will be managing us in the prem next season.Is Adkins ready for the prem? stupid question, dont no that until he is there, was Moyes ready when he went to Everton?, he has done all right.

Im hearing from a good source theres a number of clubs showing interest in swindon town captain Paul Caddis. Danny Wilson is an obvious admirer of the 23 yr old after signing him at current club swindon town. Sheff Utd Huddersfield and Birmingham as well as a few other championship clubs will show interest when january transfer window opens. Swindon wont let Caddis leave on the cheap and could ask for up to 600k for his services.(4)(8)Wilson will do at Sheff utd what he did with us have a good season and probably lose the play off final and then it will be down hill from there.
Caddis is a very good player and is better than L2 but i think alot of our players are committed to PDC nd getting the club back to L1 if we fail i can see Caddis going in the summer but not the january window. £600k is mickey mouse money for Caddis he is worth more than that as he's an international player as well.Celtic have a sell on clause with caddis also he's Never had a full international capWho said hes a full international i said international and captain of the under 21'sIf we dont go up, Caddis, Ritchie, Ferry, Flint and Kerouche will go, but none of them will be sold in Jan unless we get some silly bids, and I mean Silly, our aim is promotion, we learnt that by selling Austin in Jan last year it ended our chance of remaining in league 1, we are looking to add rooney and the burton striker as well as Benson...

Everton are interested in Wolves Striker Fletcher and with a price tag of around 8.5m, this will go ahead with the money from the sale of Rodwell.
Fletcher is itching to play for a premier league team with aspirations

1) Everton have aspirations so they sell Rodwell a Young up and coming player huge aspirations they have, no money with debts of 80m
2) Fletcher goal to shots ratio was the highest in Europe last season ahead of your Rooney's, Villas the lot a top four Team deserve Fletcher and with 15 goals in 22 games for a struggling Team that speaks for itself. 8.5m is way to low, i would not sell for less than 15m with Rodellega being quoted as 12m and hasnt scored this season.(11)(30)Their debt is only around 40mThere is no way Wolves will sell Fletcher for 8.5 million.8.5 million for a player whos goal to shots ratio is higher than Rooney jog on toffeesDebt 30 mill. 8. 5 mill for a cart house, thanks, but no thanks.This post is an absolute joke do you think if we sold rodwell we would go and buy Fletcher a, and Rodallega is available for 5m in january due to his contract running out in the summer all in all just a very stupid post.Just a sad Everton fan dreaming, firstly everton are in debt, secondly fletcher is worth alot more than 8.5 million and finally fletcher is wolves through and through and he is happy at wolves, he will not move.If he wants a "premier league club with aspirations" I would have thought Wolves were ahead of EvertonFletch is best frontman in ukMoyes is the only thing keeping the toffees in the pl they have no money to what ever they sell will cover wages etc

As part of his rehabilitation program, Arsenal have allowed Jack Wilshere to train with Watford in the new year. Watford and Arsenal both train at London Colney, and, should Wilshere be fit enough, will be invited to train with the Hornets around February.

Don't know whether a potential loan deal is involved to help regain fitness or if it's just training.(3)(29)Possible loan deal? For Wilshere? 1st choice for Gooners and England going on loan to Watford...that is so funny!!But he will have been out for half a year and like Ramsay will need to gain match fitness. I don't see any reason why they wouldn't do this deal for a monthPretty sure if hes fit enough to train with Watford hes fit enough to train with arsenal ?Ridiculous comment!!!!! jack is one of the first names on the team sheet never going to happen in a million years.find something better to do with your time.Lol to funny this transfer rumorWhy wouldn't he just train with Arsenal?

Wolves will look for some promising young additions to the squad as they face a relegation battle.

Nathaniel Clyne will come in to compete for the Right and Left back slots from Palace for a deal in the region of 5 million and Jacob Butterfield will come as Mick's Barnsley connections allow us to get the jump on Everton for him.
This deal costs around 4 million + Sam Vokes on loan for the rest of the year. The knock down fee is due to Butterfield stalling on a new deal.

Frimpong could come in on loan, but Wenger would only move him if he could get cover for Song.(8)(16)Four mill plus vokes on loan give us 4mill
plus hamill on loan and its a done dealButterfields on a free at the end of the season so it wont be as much as 4 more like 2 so if ur gunna bull st do it correctly4 mill for Butterfield!! if hes worth that then Adam Hammill is worth 20 million, Apsolute Joke ...Butts not worth 4 mil but is not avilible on a free at the season due to is age so get your facts rite give us 4 mil ill give him a piggy back all the way

behind the scenes talks are ongonig ( albeit at bar-room rather than boardroom level at present ) between Liverpool and Chelsea for a straight swap of their respective No. 9s in January. Andy Carroll is seen as an ideal replacement for Drogba whilst Torres would instantly recapture his old magic playing in front of Gerrard and Suarez(16)(46)Why have you even bothered to write this? what a load of BS!Think you have spent too long in the bar room mateCarroll to replace Drogba? dear oh dear sounds like that bar room season went on way too longKopite, trying to wish away queen kennys blunder.HA.... what an bullshiiiit story... get some sense...torres is history in liverpool, carrol is bourgt for the future... he just need even more time to settle than mario gomez did in bayern munich. wait and see. Kenny know his plan. he got 9 players for 100mio and sold 3 players for 70mio..+ 19 youngsters. he is not done yet.Wot a load of rubbish why do u think chelsea brought lukaku ?Bought for the future man? Get a grip. He paid 35 MILLION POUNDS for this beer-swilling pie eater. King Kenny? Pah!!


12 Dec 2011 05:23:59
lampard link with real madrid ..........(35)(16)Ye but what i did not understand was saying swap deal , who could they swap? , kaka?Granero. 24 year old midfielder, creative and attack minded, i dont know much more about him than that.Why would Real Madrid want to sign a player who is finished? Especially in midfield where they are miles behind Barca.Like I said I don't know who the swap would be but do u not think a 24 year old player would take more lamps and money or is it real way of dropping a plyer thy not working ? This is a strange one {Ed002's Note - Granero is average at best and only worth a small amount.}REAL Betis Or villaREAL maybe but not MadridLampard is a good player not a has been yet he would fit in with real madrid for a year or 2 then go to ac milan or retire

Man United to make a 25m move for Christian Eriksen(42)(32)Yea cos that's what United need, another winger! How about spending 25 mil on a centre back, centre midfielder, right back or keeper?!U do know eriksen is an attacking mid?25 million where is the money coming from, with all there debt dont make me laugh.Wake up having no money is getting old now if u had a clue about it u would not say anything , and sorry he plays out wide , man u need centre mid and link man , they good at back don't worry miss cleverly big time tho ?Just because Wikipedia says he is an attacking midfielder doesn't make it true! If you knew anything about footbal you would know he is a wide player!He is a central attacking midfielder!!! I know this because i live in Amsterdam and i support AjaxSo why does he play on the wing for Denmark?! Do they have that many amazing central midfielders they can afford to play him out wide?!Are you forgetting that Scholes, Gerrard and Joe Cole all played out on the wing for England? Sometimes the most technical player in a national team gets bumped into a problem position because they can cope with it the best.


11 Dec 2011 15:31:03
Chelsea targets this January
Milner(24)(57)Whos missing, this is your fifa team right?!?! load of rubbish.Since Chelsea have been struugling their fans have gone in to BS overdrive.... course you will champ!Why would Hart and Milner leave City for a pub team?!I may not like Chelsea, but pub team? really? They're 3rd in the PremierLeague and are in the Champions League, hardley a pub team.When was the last time you looked at the premier league table? Third, really?Chelsea have an aging squad and an unproven manager! They didn't exactly have a difficult CL group to qualify from! We will see tomorrow night which club is bigger!Pub team, all i can say is Champions league London clubs 2 Manchester 0^^ Chelski are 5th in the prem pal!Did you lot not have Hazard playing for you before?...... Mickey Hazard!AVB will turn it around just give him time Chelsea 3-1 winners tomarEven Chelsea wouldn't be stupid enough to waste time on players they know they can't get. They wasted last summer trying to get Modric. It would be a further waste of their time try for Modric again in January or for Walker and City sell Hart? Come onFirstly, all you manchester United and City fans, we might not be first and second but we're 4th so it might not be third but if you were any good at maths you'd know it's only a place less. And we qualified for the last 16 yeah but it was hardly any easier a group than Man. Utd's. and we've beaten Bayern Munich before, it's not hard. It's hardly a Pub team is it?
Secondly, I can see Pereira and Subotic happening, we need to replace that carp we call Luiz, I can see Milner seen as most of the time he's lucky for a game.
I can see Hazard and Falcao because Falcao because we want him and he wants to come to usand I'm sure a bit of russian money can tempt Lille to sell. The only other one's Tiote, he'd be a good signing actually.


11 Dec 2011 15:20:24
Reports over the last half an hour seem to be showing that Kennedy is ready to put pen to paper and sign a 2 year deal with Northampton town. Fee has not been agreed but reliable sources seem to be saying the deal is nearly wrapped up due to a conversation between on loan Chelsea goalkeeper Sam Walker and Kennedy himself.(3)(15)Not that reliable your sources then. I was with Jordan Kennedy at the time you state watching Sunderland v Blackburn ( Jordan is a Sunderland fanatic) and no conversation took place with sam Walker or anyone elseIf they have any sense they will sign him. He has bags of potential.


11 Dec 2011 14:58:55
Rumours still circulating Regarding the Jordan Kennedy move from Woking to Northampton town. Fee now rumoured to be within the region of 10-20,000 pounds.(14)(6)

People who will be sold are snjder, lucio, stankiovioc and floran.(8)(31)Where will sendjer go? But I defo agree that Inter Milan need to step it up, like A.C Milan have with the likes of Robhino, Boateng and Aquianlla have done for them!


11 Dec 2011 14:16:33

Simon Cox was a rumour after he scored twice against Southampton in pre season. He said he wants first team football to get in the Ireland squad. I think he'd be a great addition. On loan until end of season then buy him once promoted. Would be great alongside super Ricky lambert.(25)(13)

Peterborough's Nicky Ajose to be loaned out to Exeter in January to regain his confidence and goal-scoring touch. Ferguson has admitted Ajose has been a disappointment since joining from man utd, and is unhappy with his huge shortage of goals at Scunthorpe. He is unwilling to use him in the Championship this year. Peterborough will persue their interest in Kane Ferdinand despite allegations that he will not be sold this winter.(8)(11)
