16 Oct 2011 10:17:41
Saunders will break up the O'Driscoll team by January, with the midfield players Coppinger, Gillet & Oster being the first out the door in the January window.
Followed by Stock, & O'Connor should O'Driscoll get another Championship club.
Parkin isn't interested in staying after the loan spell unless things change apparently & Sharp is being now approached by Leeds United as well as Southampton, so he may yet get the opportunity in the Premiership.
Saunders wants the team to be another Stoke City & kick their way out of League 1 next year then continue towards the Premiership.
Problem is the team will lose an awful lot of supporters who want to see a winning team, but not at all costs, & five years under O'Driscoll saw quality football.
RTID(2)(15)I don't think we'd approach Sharp after some of the things he said when we last bid for him. He has no respect. And he was a no-show on Friday night. Southampton could though, thats pretty likely.
wallyYou haven't got an awful lot of supporters to lose in the first place :-)What are you talking about?Why would leeds want to sign sharp? we have lots of other strikers most of whom are better than him....mccormack made your boys look like mugs ps you are very welcome to take paynter off of usStoke didnt kick their way out of anywhere, direct football yes kicking no


16 Oct 2011 09:59:26
Right Leeds fans, here's what you've all been waiting for - lowdown on the Jonny Howson transfer situation. This comes from a friend who works at the club.

Apparentley Howson has no issue with the money being offered (5k pay rise) but is waiting to see what sort of state the club are in towards the middle of the season as he has Premier League ambitions. The gist I got is that its considered pretty likely he'll sign by the club.(4)(17)Is your friend the club accountant??players contracts are private,this smells like b/s to me.Howson is not Premiership class, his form this season has been hot & cold, more cold actually.In that case he should sign now...13 points from 15 were going up!Original poster here - I'll refer you to the YEP interview with Howson today. He states as much.


16 Oct 2011 04:51:23

15 Oct 2011 21:28:54
Having recently landed Peruvian 'wonderkid' Pier Larrauri, Leicester City are again set to trump the big boys with the signing of a second prodigious talent from South America.
Not sure yet WHO the target is, but believe him to be 16/17, Chilean and has been 'watched' by a number of Europe's top sides!(4)(16)Don't bother , after losing to B'ham you're going nowhere this seasonBirmingham will be a force now you watch. Individually their playes are better than championship quality and they have a manager in Chris Hughton that knows exactly how to unlock teams.

As for Chillean wonderkid joining, i doubt it very much, the only young Chillean that isn't at a top european club murdered Leicester yesterday, hit the apex from 28 yards out and won the penalty. Jean Beausejour will rip this league to pieces!


15 Oct 2011 21:13:09
Habib Beye will leave Aston Villa in January due to not being in Alex McLeish's plans.(18)(7)Beye is on £65,000 p/w .. of course he must go!Beye is old, on big dough and an absolute has been of the highest order! McLeish love this type of player.

McLeish will destroy the scum just like he did with the Blues!


15 Oct 2011 19:57:29
Barnsley midfielder, Jacob Butterfield, who again impressed in their match against Portsmouth on television, is attracting interest from a number of Premier League Clubs. Despite interesting a number of un-named clubs, four teams have already made contact over the skipper. Derby County boss has already said to Keith Hill, current Barnsley boss, 'name your price whilst Steve Bruce of Sunderland, has already apparently made a £1.2 million bid for the Barnsley born playmaker. Top Chilean side Colo Colo are keen to bring in some English talent and believe a bid for Butterfield in high wages could persuade him to move to South America. Finally, Belgian side Gent have also made a enquiry.(4)(20)What this intersting unnamed clubs, if these clubs are unamed, how do people know theyre interested and how do you know theyre interested. Who decides that theyre unnamed.

The lad is a good player but cut the bullst


15 Oct 2011 19:45:53
Wilfried Zaha is looking at the possibility of joining West Brom in January after Roy Hodgson had a bid accepted by Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman. The former Liverpool manager made an enquiry about the England under 19 forward and was quoted an undisclosed figure, believed to be around £7 million.(6)(19)Lies, the baggies have no money , the chairman stated that after buying Shane Long.How on earth can you be "quoted an undisclosed sum"


15 Oct 2011 19:45:13
The media are saying the Bristol City job is now a 2 horse race between McInnes and Robins, but O'Driscoll was sat just behind me in the Dolman stand today, so he must still be in contention.(10)(7)


15 Oct 2011 19:45:05
Mcarthy to leave after the Swansea game.
O'Neill to be installed.(27)(14)If only.....O'Neill would want a massive
transfer budget, but useless Morgan
would not give to him or any other manager. It's relegation for certain.Thanks Mick - time to go now.Awww the poor dod heads, how is Roger Johnson working out for ya??

Couldnt happen to a nicer team!


15 Oct 2011 19:41:05
Peterborough United attacker Lee Tomlin is attracting serius interest from Blackpool. Ian Holloway is keen to bring in Tomlin after being in superb form this season. Darren Ferguson has revealed he wouldn't let him go for no less than £1 million.(6)(15)Right, I'm a Peterborough die hard fan and attend every game and it pains me to say that his form has been poor this year. Hopefully his belter against Bristol city today will spark his season alite.Remember this to all teams including peterborough yeah bristol city are poor at mo but teams which have beaten us remember bristol rovers beat us 2.0 at the gate then we beat them at there ground 4.2 just keep this in mindI wasn't saying Bristol are poor, I was just merely stating that Tomlin has not been in great form this year and his goal was undoubtedly quality and enough to ignite anyone's season.To peterborough fan above yeah good goal im a bristol city fan we are poor at mo players dont click goodluck to your team in championship and your team must be good you put 7 past ipswich


15 Oct 2011 18:12:25
Neil Lennon considering his position as manager of Celtic after his side struggled to a 3-3 draw with lowly Kilmarnock today(20)(10)Whats to consider,he is not up to the job end of,but he is the cheap option dito mcoist


15 Oct 2011 16:47:23
Saunders to be sacked after argument with the Chairman last night after the Leeds defeat(5)(15)Donny were humiliated, but thats a bit extreme in my opinion. Of course, sacking O'driscoll is a huge mistake, but thats what happens when you have an idiot in charge.
wallySaunders has done well so far for donny....but they were humilated my the mighty whites!! MOT


15 Oct 2011 15:05:06
Harry Redknapp wants to bring in a Centre Back in January(14)(7)Well thats the opposite of what i have seen, Cahill=no. Ferdinand=no. They only went for Cahill as they thought The King was not going to be fit. Try again.Sean st ledger is available for loan if harry would like him, he needs a little bit of first team actionIt's not really a secret that Spurs are after a centre back, Cahill has been ruled out because of his price and Spurs aren't interested in Ferdinand because they aready have couple of injury prone defenders.
With King now injured and Bassong looking for a move expect Spurs to go back in for Cahill or someone of a similar age but cheaperCahill is number one target


15 Oct 2011 09:30:32
Spurs chasing Villa star Gabby Agbonlahor.
Villa set to offer to bump his contact upto 5 years with £65,000 p/w.
Plus, If any bid is put in .. Agbonlahor is a villa fan so will not leave.(7)(13)If hes anything like his greedy mate bent he will goAgbonlahor is a Villa fan so he will stay?

Oh yeah, thats likely! Just Like Craig Gardner was a Viler? he left. Then he was a Blue nose? he left?

Loyalty counts for nothing, especially someone as mentally 'special' as yamomsawhore!

14 Oct 2011 14:42:46
If van persie stays, Wesley snjuryder to join arsenal.(4)(35)Neither will happen.Schneider and RVP dont get along so not likely


14 Oct 2011 14:40:53
This is what will happen in january.

Van Persie, to leave.
Walcott, to leave.

Jack Wilshere to become captain. As he will stay at the club throughout his career. He is a true born arsenal player.

Players in:
Eden Hazard
Adam Johnson
James Milner.

Players i would love to see come in:
David Villa
Adam Johnson.
James Milner.
Eden Hazard.

Players i would hate to see.
Drogba.(6)(43)You are playing fifa , this is not going to happen!Although this is all fantasy, I believe Drogba would have won Arsenal the league last year. Arsenal need a striker who will lead the line and benefit from van Persie and his calling to find space in the channels and out wide, also Drogba is an outstanding defender at set pieces(a high percentage of your goals conceded).Problem is, Arsenal dont just concede from corners, they cant cope with balls into the channels plus, if you put the ball between the keeper and the defence then they probably will have a small dance before it ending up in the back of the net.

Footballing wise, Arsenal layed great last season, the problem is, they are a million miles from the big 3 (Man U, Man City, Chelsea) and they have been overtken by Spurs and Liverpool. Arsenal are about as good as Newcastle at the moment!


14 Oct 2011 13:29:08
Wolves set to sign Kris Commons in January(8)(22)Why would Kommons leave a massive club like Celtic to go to a future championship small club like wolverhampton?Second best team in Scotland's rubbish league, massive, yes he is, and no your not, ps you can't even spell his name so he must be having a massive influence on youWhy do we want a second rate championship player who will never hack it all Celtic fans are the same deludedEPL >> Championship >>>>>>>SPLI'd go EPL >>Championship >>> League 1 >>>> SPLWhy would a small player like him go to a club like wolves tay at the small club chris its your level


14 Oct 2011 11:19:56
I am so glad it looks like steve cotterill is finally leaving, bring on Martin Oneil and watch us climb that table, whoever we bring in the rumours is they will be given about 10-15 million in January to build a squad to get us back to the Premiere league. POP(8)(31)O'Neill..., and i'm a Pompey fan! No chance of that i think. Maybe Curbs, or Dave Jones(not my choice), Wilkins. How about Prosinecki and Bilic? PUP. KEEP THE FAITH.Dreaming your alway dreaming. Not a cat in hells chanceLets hope we get some one with an idea for attacking football oneil ,jones , zolaMate your owners are FG you over, they meant 10-15 million russian rubbles that converts to 2-3 hundred thousand GBP thats if your lucky, look ST club always will be deal with it, as for Martin O'neil you could be right but i thought he would of had more ambition than your lot, even curbs is to good for you, i would nor be surprised if someone from within got promoted.Back to the Prem will need to spend 10-15 mill to get yourselves clear of relegation you silly fishy person....going down going down COYR STIDRelegation this season im afraid no manager no money no hopeSos billy davies,pip pip.

from Bristol Airport.
The passenger was
Scottish and flew in on a
flight from Glasgow. He
said he was down for the
Bristol City manager's job.(12)(18)A Mr McInnes, methinks - 2nd interview

Or maybe David Moyes coming back :)I would be able to spot McInnes but it certainly wasn't David Moyes.

Dark haired chap in his 40's.That's absolutely fascinating that!! Could it be Elvis Presley maybe?No deep fried banana sanwiches allowed in the back of my cab. Plus, there is a fouling charge. Do one Presley.I once told a young lady taxi driver i played for man utd .!I once told a young lady i played for bristol city ha haI know, it was Ally McCoist, he has realised Bristol City are at his level.Rab c after it is he?

Under fire West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson's job hangs in the balance should the baggies loose their black country derby against rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers Roy could be facing the sack or be out on gardening duties with Martin O'Neill being the potential successor ,O'Neill is desperate to get back into management and still lives in the West Midlands.(7)(30)I am from West Bromwich & love the baggies but Roy's time really has come , we all know he wants the England job he has even said it,Give Martin O'Neill a crack , we seen what he done with Leicester ,Celtic & Villa.No mate o'neill on his way to forest its a no brainer he turns down ireland job same day old team mate frank clark gets to be new chairman first job find a new manager .Trapattoni has not been offered a new contract but nobody has been offered his job either ,I would swop Roy for M,O,N tomorrow. I hate Roys tactics, he has changed us from a free flowing counter attack team, to a boring mundane defensively minded pile of poo. What people need to understand is last years successfull team was RDM,s not Roys. This years team is all Roys doing and upto now we have been very poor. So its a Roy out for me.O'Neill?
He left Villa because he could not have all his star players kept while having another £280m.
You numbty .. He will never join West Brom!


13 Oct 2011 01:55:23

13 Oct 2011 00:50:27
I was at The Emirates today for a work exhibition, and I saw Roy Keane leaving the stadium, suited and booted. No idea why he'd be there, hopefully to knock some sense into Wenger!!??

As much as he'd be great for us as a coach or number 2, I can't see it somehow. Anyone heard anything on the grapevine about Roy Keane and Arsenal? If I'd have read it on here I would have thought it wasn't true, if I hadn't seen him with my own eyes!(4)(21)Keane & Arsenal?
Roy Keane? what have you been smoking?Kean fergie bad blood getting one on fergie lol last thing I no that was true about Roy was he took iceland job ( not working on tills ) the international side but then just don't turn up to meet players and pressAs if things are not bad enough at Arsenal lets hope Wenger puts him in charge of player recruitment and your going down.You never know Keane could improve their disiplinary record...doubt it though.I'm not saying anything will happen, or think of what planet he'd do anything with Arsenal, but he WAS there! For whatever reason I've no idea????Michael Vaughan twitered a couple of days ago that there was a league managers conference at he Emirates where ROy Keane was a guest speaker.Sounds about right he didnt turn up for iceland and arsenal havent turned up all season


12 Oct 2011 23:51:14

12 Oct 2011 23:49:07
The remaining three British teams and Republic of Ireland will lose their manager in the next two months. Fabio Capello will step down as England manager after being unhappy with some contract restrictions, Gary Speed will have talks with an un-named club with a contract expected to be sealed in the next fortnight, Giovanni Trapattoni will step down as Rep of Ireland boss due to health reasons and Craig Levein is understood to have handed his letter of resignation in to the Scottish FA. All four will join Nigel Worthington, who has just resigned from the Northern Ireland national team as leaving a home nation.
England will approach Benfica for manager Jorge Jesus to take over as manager for the Euros with a view to a three year deal. Jesus has done a superb job with the Portuguese side since joining in 2009 and also made his name at Braga.
With the unexpected loss of Speed, Wales are keen to bring in Hartlepool boss Mick Wadsworth after the Barnsley born manager attracted interest of a number of teams after a superb start at the League 1 club this season.
Republic of Ireland are set to approach Tottenham coach Joe Jordan to be their new boss. Ireland are wanting somebody who can bring some discipline to the side, just like Trapattoni did. Jordan can also keep his job at Spurs with it not being a full time job. Jordan is keen on getting into management but not with a club side, until he leaves Tottenham mutually.
Scotland are expected to appoint Leicester assistant Derek Fazackerley on a two year deal after the very experienced coach was contacted late last night.
Finally, Northern Ireland are looking at the possibility of bringing in Francois Zahoui from the Ivory Coast. The inexperienced boss is wanted by the Northern Irish FA after an impressive campaign with the 49 year old known for his fluent passing football.(5)(33)I think it might be best all round if you got some sleep, whooo!Did you ever work for NEWS OF THE WORLD, biggest loadWhere do they dream up this complete rubbish.

im a arsenal fan and ive read on talksport that anzi are trying to grab some big stars, such as john terry, frank lampard drogba anelka. also they have intrest in robin van persie. if they do i reckon they bid about 25-30 million. what do you think?(6)(16)Yeah 25-30 million Rubles sounds about rightLooks like Russia to bring in some real big players, can see a Russian team winning champions league in a few years if the keep buying big playersVan Persie yes, hes a fantastic talent. The others are burnt out and see their playing careers through at Chelsea.He said wants to stay in prem if he was to ever move so don't think so if gunners buy he will stay if not it be fill his bank time and that would be city

northampton have accepted a £250,000 from a premaship team for micheal Jacbobs, do you know who it is?(3)(8)Wolves. McCarthy has been following him since last January.It's not premiership, it's championship and it is one of three intrested teams West Ham, Leicester or Derby. I dont know which though

Nothing happening at molineux?? Surely MM is looking to strengthen?(3)(13)Nope wolves dont need any more players zeil ismail is almost back to full fittness and will be one of the worlds best players: he made his reutern aganst man u youth team and got 2 goals and 2 assits.
the highly rated 17 who man u man city and chealsea and real madrid all have offerd 3m to 12m for the young 2 footed winger who has misst most of the last 18 mouths with a broken leg and ankelHow many years ago did you get that article ? He played last night against Villa reserves and scored.^^ very true he did do his reading up though he is 17 but i think hes a albion fan cause if he new anything about wolves they dont bring youngsters through till 19 if there good enoughThere will be no incomings at molineux because the manager has lost the plot and morgan is tight-fisted. end of. can't even compete for mcfadden-a free agentTransfer window is closed num nuts

Leighton Baines looks to be on his way out of goodison park in january as kenwright tries to ease spiraling debts with liverpool fc or man city being his prefered destination due to family commitments(26)(12)He has said repeatedly that he will never sign for Liverpool FC - most recently in an interview in the Sunday Times. {Ed001's Note - you are wasting your time, no one ever listens, I spent all summer saying he wasn't going to join Liverpool, I have given up now!}Wouldn't want him anyway as we have Jose Enrique!Kirkby cabbies know the score !Liverpool = no chance, he pubicly has stated, NEVER.

Man City - Kolarov and Glichy there so NO chance

QPR to sign kris commons from Celtic in Jan for 3 million(10)(20)Think his time is up at Celtic, was amazing when he joined but way off the pace this season. Class player if he gets his act together. Don't think Lennon and Commons have much time for each other now.Its upsetting he's the shadow of the player from last year...and him and lennon's relationship is in tatters if qpr are willing to pay 3 million ad bite ther hands offUnlikely tbh...
was sold for 300k 9 months ago, he's 27/28, injury prone, never played in the Premiership, inconsistent, lazy...
just an older version of Taarabt reallyYeah but Warnock likes him and Tarrabt is leaving for lile in Jan for 14 million3 million what??? Pies........

Portsmouth are expected to name Ray Wilkins or Dave Jones as there new manager after Cotterill has admitted he could be leaving to go Nottingham Forest in the next week.(9)(18)Ray Wilkins would be greatHope this is not true i like Ray Wilkins as a pundit, i would have to start hating him being a Saints fan.Wilkins is short on Mgt experience so Dave Jones might be a safer option. Chris Coleman also being mentioned.Theres no truth in this story.


11 Oct 2011 20:35:00
Liverpool are willing to offer Bolton cash plus Danny Wilson and/or Maxi Rodriguez in exchange for Gary Cahill this January. Nathan Eccleston and Fabio Aurelio will not be offered new deals and will both be allowed to leave the club next summer when their contracts are up along with Stephen Darby who is currently out on loan. Liverpool are planning big changes and Joe Cole,Alberto Aquilani,Dani Pacheco,David Amoo,Emmanuel Mendy,Brad Jones,Martin Skrtel and unfortunately Dirk Kuyt are looking likely to be sold next summer.Eden Hazard is Comolli and Daglish's number 1 target as Comolli said, "We have identified targets. If there's a possibility of us getting a world-class player, we will have the backing." but they are also looking admirably towards Angelo Ogbonna,Gaston Ramirez and Gonzalo Higuain.(15)(16)Be careful ed 1 may tell you your having wet dreams with that wish list! {Ed001's Note - I think he is, there is very little chance of Cahill ending up at Liverpool in Jan, more likely Chelsea, possibly Spurs.}Was on about the last few names, ed, if you can dish it I can take it, but it works both ways, I do have a really good informant at whl, I'm spot on with regards to what I posted last night, you gave one of your posters hits own page, due to his rumours, did he get anything right during the summer? good luck fella {Ed001's Note - if you say so mate, but it doesn't tally with anything I have heard from within WHL, there was money there last January but not much this summer. It was pulled out from under 'Arry due to the stadium, it will be the same in January as well I am told. As for Macca, he did get a number of things correct, but he was given the page to save us answering endless questions regarding his posts, not because of the truth or otherwise of his posts. The last few names? You mean Hazard who it is known Comolli has put forwards as a signing, Ramirez, who Liverpool have had watched repeatedly and has both Coates and Suarez in his ear, and Higuain, who Liverpool tried to get in the summer but Madrid were not willing to deal then.}They were told to build the npp ( northumberland park project) they would have to pay themselves there so the reason levy opted for the olympic park ( a lot cheaper), but due to the rioting harringay council need totenham in totenham, I did a course near
seven sisters and had to travel from the angel
edmonton all the way along totenham high road,
and where they rioted is like something
resembling a war zone, but now due to
government funding within the area harringay
council can now release funds for the stadium,
which will release funds for spending, domino
effect, the ground will be turned around 90
degrees due to listed buildings on the high road next to bill nicholson way. Reports within the club are that harry has gone come the summer, my contact has stated a deal had been done regarding a new manager, four names had been passed on to me, tim sherwood, david moyes, pepe guardiola & carlo ancelotti (sp) and that daniel levy spent a lot of time in meetings in spain! This is what I'm led to believe, I'm also led to believe armstrong was the first man on the moon! But I don't believe that one! But I do believe the new manager is one of those four, and I would personally rule out sherwood but he will stay on as assistant manager?You forgot to add Messi and Ronaldo as liverpool players in jan... your source must be HP mate.Hazard?
He's not joining Liverpool or Arsenal.
You are a complete nutter! {Ed002's Note - The quote from Comolli is a year old and was said when Roy Hodgson was manager.}

11 Oct 2011 18:04:13
middlesbrough to battle leicester city in january for grant holt cost around 2 million(3)(20)Middlesborough would lose a fight involving money, but Holt won't go to either club, so it's irrelevant.I know leicester are named with every striker outside the top six in the prem but that over rated fat ? really? (not a leicester fan so no axe to grind)Why would Norwich accept a shoddy offer for a tenacious, determined man that has had a huge hand in taking them to the Barclays Premier League. Plus, if Norwich were to sell him they would not accept an offer under £5m.

Grant Holt is a Norwich City legend in the making and I think taht they will finish 14th this season and Blackburn, Wolves and Wigan to be relegatedFans have their favourites and that's totally understandable, but thinking Holt is worth £5m when he can't even get into the team is total nonsense. He may have played a big part in the promotion season, but that was then. This season he's hardly played, 4 games (2 as sub) doesn't make him worth £5m.

It's rubbish anyway, Leicester have four good strikers already at the club and another (Waghorn) out on loan. Sven will get money to strengthen in January if he needs it (according to the local paper) and Grant Holt wouldn't strengthen the side, he'd go straight onto the bench.


11 Oct 2011 18:00:54

Chris Kirkland will start in goal for Doncaster on friday against Leeds, Rovers also hope to tie up the loan signing of Frederic Piquionne before the game(16)(6)Easy win for Leeds with that donkey between the sticksJelous leeds fan haha hes better than lonergran just wish youd shut up n get on with it , heard same rumour bout kirkland from rovers lottery guy jjBetter than Lonergan you're having a laugh? Lonergan been scouted by Everton whilst Kirkland is loaned out to a bottom 3 Championship side? Let that speak for itself.I think the resident genius missed the obvious mistake, he seems to think that Kirkland is good... if he is so good, why is he out on loan for the second consecutive season? He went to Leicester last year and Sven couldn't get rid of him fast enough! He didn't even complete his loan in fact because, surprise surprise, he got injured. He still managed to conceed a shedload of goals though.

I really wouldn't try to brag about signing him, people will laugh.Can only judge Lonergan from when I saw him play my team Ipswich this season and he looked very suspect in that game. Altough heard he is a decent keeper.Decent he is the best goalie in the championship and in the top 3 english goalies at the moment. oh kirkland will be best in league next year if he stays wi dons as they will be div 1 team

South London PressSo levein gets scotland through to play offs and loses job, dont think so pal !
ballyboyThing is scotland are not going to get into the play offs are they spain could stay at home and scotland still wouldnt be able to beat them dont think so Pal !Who would want to have the lack of success created by the league 2 standard team that is Scotland tarnishing there name. Lambert is faaaar too good for Scotland. I should think he would prefer a solid foundation with a decent chance of success….maybe Trinidad and Tobago? offs. LMAO. LoL!Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha good oneScotland only have the expectation of getting there this time we've failed. England's expectation is to win the competition, only a suspect russian linesman has prevented a complete failure on that front. dont forget scotland were the first to defeat the 1966 world champions on their own patchThe above post is simply clutching at straws. England is the King of the home nations and always will be. There will be times, like the side that beat the 1966 world champions, that you get a result against us, and then live on that dream for the next 40 years or so. Scotland, Wales and the 2 Irelands wouldn't even be able to topple Englangs UK dominance if you conbined the teams and we could also give you a 2 player allowance from any other country (messi and ronaldo if you like) and you'd still get nowhere near us.

Take this guys rumour for what it is, pointless! Scotland and teams like them (Wales and the 2 Irelands) need stability f they are going to reach the finals of any major tournament. Rep Ireland were cheated by the French (which i love, because Ireland would only laugh if that happpened to us).

Swapping and Changing managers is nnot good for the best nations, make of this what you will, but for the crappy little nations with mediocre players (Bale - Wales, Ramsey - Wales, Fletcher - Scotland, Given - Ireland apart) will never do anthing unleess they have stability. Try and emulate Ireland first, then you may sneak the play offs

The reason the LUOS has not been updated in a while is not clear, but in the past this has meant something going down at the club, of which the website is permanently in denial. For example, when Max Gradel was sold, there was no update concerning it until a week after, when Bates posted the message about how much he regretted. Whoever posts the updates is hopelessly biased and never seems to pick up on the facts that fans really want to hear about. It has not been updated now in nearly a week; I have checked it regularly. What are we not being told?
1. Is Howson stalling on a new contract?
2. Are there further remonstrations following the Carling Cup clash with Manchester United and the reactions of both sets of fans?
3. Has anyone else stalled on signing a deal?
4. Has there been a training ground bust-up of some sort?

No rumour I'm afraid, but these signs usually aren't good.
wally(1)(5)What are you talking about you idiot?? the official site has been updated every day including today. garyd MOTIts been updated mate, but only today, before then it wasnt. You can't deny that our club's site pulls the wool over your eyes with some of its updates.
wallyI go on the official site every day and there are always updates, except over weekends when there is no game on. But i do agree that the club does not always keep us informed about certain information. garyd MOT

Grant Holt is to leave Norwich and head to Leicester for an undisclosed fee at the start of the next transfer window. Holt being one of the Norwich's most saleable assets will depart to increase the available transfer funds come January when Norwich look to make the signings that will ensure Premiership survival.

While some Norwich fans may be dismayed by the sale of the clubs talisman, after two highly successful seasons with the Norfolk club and many memorable performances. The board and Paul Lambert aim to pull off a piece of transfer magic that would take attention away from Holt's departure. With an audacious bid to lure Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, who is yet to claim a regular starting place this season at White Heart Lane to Carrow Road.

Norwich are to risk the big money deal in a bid to ensure goals that could be vital in helping the club to avoid the drop first time round. With the Norwich strikers (Holt, Martin, Morrison and the injured Vaughan) presently struggling to find consistent goal scoring form in the Premiership, the club will look to Defoe's proven prowess in front of goal to keep them up.

Although if Norwich are unable to guarantee the signature of Defoe prior to the opening of the January transfer window, Holts transfer to Leicester will be postponed until Norwich have tied up the services of an experienced Premiership goal scorer like Lois Saha or Peter Odemwingie.

(Both only being examples of possible alternative targets.)

Please, behave, Defoe no chance, Holt i can see leaving for the championship if he doesnt get a run before xmas but chances are is that he will. Holt is a very level headed Pro who has "been around" and knows the business to well to make a rash career decision like that. I think that NCFC have kept some money aside for January. In fact i am sure D McNally is shrued and studies the history of the game very well.... The season changes in January and i think 2-3 signings is well within the thinking. I am also sure they have 10 names on there list all of which would have to want to play for the club or at least want to prove themselves at Prem Level... Whats Defoe got to prove... For me go get Charlie Austin / Nicky Maynard both would demand 5mill transfers in Jan which i believe will be our budget for a striker(4)(12)£5m for Nicky Maynard? At one time yes, but not now, not now that he's struggling in a piss poor team and not a chance because he's out of contract at the end of the season and will either sign a pre-contract in January, or will walk for free at the end of the summer. Bristol City took a gamble and it's backfired, they'll go down, Maynard will leave for free, nuff said.Can people stop assuming that Leicester will just throw silly money at everyone. We picked up Bamba for peanuts and is worth 3 mill now, Nugent on a free, peltier for no money, Kasper was a bargain at just over 1 mill and Fernandes on a season loan. Its only Matt Mills that has grabbed all of the limelight and he has now turned into a rock..3 clean sheets in a row against 3 top 6 teams!Holt to Aston Villa for £3m more likely.
