Football Rumours Archive November 18 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Theres a lot of nonsence being put on this forum, LFC will not have the money to buy who they want in JAN. That is fact. Therefore only expect to see 1 or possibly 2 incoming–


The buys will mainly be funded by the sale of Pennant and Voronin bringing in about 9 mill for the pair. But its dependant on the yanks makin a few mill available. Rafa will not sell Dossena in Jan, he will get until seasons end to prove himself, if not Rafa will bid for Gareth Bale (12m)
To the bitters and geordies– Top of the league. .la la la. .unashamedly smug :)
  Newcastle the 5th biggest club in PL? not sure about that. Spurs have won 3 European trophies, Newcastle 1. Everton were arguably the best team in the world in the mid 80's. Could have possible won the European cup had it not been for Heysel and the ban. What have Newcastle done in the last 30 years? FA Cup Finalists and 2nd in the league? Filling a 50,000 seater stadium does not make you the biggest club, now THAT is delusional
  For the deluded Newcastle fan who thinks that Newcastle are the 5th biggest club what are you basing that on? You've never won anything, You don't look like you ever will win anything either, You go through managers more often than you cut the grass on the pitch, You've not got any decent players (granted Owen might be if he wasn't such a sick note and lets face it he'll be gone as soon as he can). What exactly are you basing your argument on? Ticket sales? or what your team is doing on the pitch, your history, Your global support? huh what?
Plus the Ambani's have already said that they have no interest in buying Newcastle. Your going to end up owned by some consortium from some random place and just turn into another Fulham (no offence fulham but it's true). You'll never do anything in the league other than scrape out of relegation battles if your lucky, you'll never win a cup and you'll never qualify for europe.
  To the guys who were talking about Rangers and Celtic. .Celtic won't get manucho, full stop.

Rangers will NOT sign hutton or Gattuso, behave yourself! Anf if we were we would not get them for as little as you say! Rangers have no money to spend, and could not afford either players tranfer or wages. We will also never be signing Coombe/Reynolds or any other SPL average player.

I do hope we sign Brian Easton from Accies as he has been excellent so far, and could do a real job, and will cost very little. Other players we might sign may be McArthur from Hamilton. Other than that, expect very little in the way of tranfers into Ibrox, Smith told us this, it will be selling players in January that will be his priority
  January Transfer Rumours.

Saint Mirren are looking to strengthen things at the back with young millport athletic starlet Andrew Joyce, while heading to Man Utd is hamilton Accies Youngster Adam Colville Who is highly rated in scotland.

Jamie kirk will also be signing to rangers from hibs after walter smith has declaired interest with him.
  Cesc Fabregas will be leaving at the end of the season if we don't sort out our results. If we don't get 4th spot I fear he will head to Barcelona for more money. If this happens I would like them to consider a new coach as Arsene simply refuses to improve the squad with experience. There also seems to be a few bitter Everton fans on here with sour grapes. If you listen properly it is very rarely the Liverpool fans that are banging on about their chances this season. Most Liverpool fans I have spoken to have been very conservative about their chances simply because they actualy have a real chance this season and seem scared to tempt fate. Unlike yourselves you can't go around blaming Liverpool FC for your failures. Everton are simply a smaller club and not very good at the moment.

Van Buyten–Bayern

  Zico the ex–brazil manager might take over as the next Man City coach.
  Zico the ex–brazil manager might take over as the next Liverpool coach.
  Liverpool and Man City will be involved in swapping Yossi Benayoun + 2mil and Elano. Benayoun would like first team football and Elano is unhappy as well as Hughes being unhappy with him.

Liverpool will also add Kuba for 7mil after selling Pennant for 4mil to Blackburn or Stoke.

Summer signings will include Fred from Lyon on a free. Dossenna will be given time to adapt. If he does not, Benitez will look for another full back. The same goes for Degan. An experienced and cheap centre back will be brought in.
  What the hell who ever values arsenal at 800 m to 1–2 billion youre out of you mind, Man U only cost lyk 600 million before the credit crunch and probz still are worth the most in the EPL dimwit. Now with some real news Arsene Wenger to accept the France post in December, the board want trophies now, he keeps saying wait 2 – 3 years which will be the time is young players may noy be so young get the point. AND SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME THE LAST PLAYER ARSENAL MADE THROUGH THERE ACADEMY E.G. MAN UTD – Scholes, Neville, Giggs n many more Liverpool – Gerrard n Carragher. You buy players at a young age who are already good you don't get them when there 8 n raise them through ur academy u pinched Fabregas from Barca same wid Walcott from Southampton.N wen Wenger leaves aresnal fans expect 6 or 8th place in da EPL coz City , Pool , Utd , Chavski n Villa ar da big boys now –––––––––––––– ADAM ––––––––––––––––––––––
  To the Newcastle fan who posted this – "I completly agree with the everton fan,liverpool fans are most dissulusioned fans known to the world they think they will win the title every year when they have a half decent start.Face it chelsea are the best team in the league i am a newcastle fan and i know that.and to all the fans out there who do not believe newcastle to be a big club have a good look at yourself you clearly have no disrepect to tottenham but we are the 5th biggest club in the premier league but not the 5th best.these are two different all this suspicion of american owners is false listen to me the new owner will be anil ambani and his brother mukesh ambani the current 6th and 5th richest men in the world.anil will take most 60 percent control of the club and mukesh will take the rest." You were doing quite well until the last two sentences. The Ambani brothers have'nt spoke to each other for almost 10yrs, so it's highly unlikely they will enter into a business partnership now is it?
  William Gallas is going to leave arsenal for ac.milan for 14mil. Denilson to leave for 7mil to bayern and bendtner to leave for 6mil to lyon. All this will be done in Jan as Wenger are sick and tired of this black sheeps.

Come Jun next year. Wenger he himself will be sack if there is no title won. Marco Van Basten/David Moyes/Phil Brown/Ralf Rangnick are favs for the job in order of ranking.
  Firstly, to all the Everton, Newcastle, Tottenham, Arsenal supporters out there saying that Liverpool fans are kidding themselves if they think they will win the league, I suppose you all think your clubs have a chance at it? Have you seen the ladder? Do you actually watch the games? Liverpool are equal top, have beaten Chelsea away and Man U at home and are playing good, attractive football. Believe me when i say that they have more chance of winning the league than your poor excuses for clubs do. . now to my rumour, Liverpool are going to make a bid for Australian goal scoring phenom Scott McDonald of Celtic. Rafa was impressed by his workrate and by his composure when scoring against Man U in the champs league. A fee of around 10 million pounds should be enough to convince Celtic to part ways. .Thanks
  Sunderland transfers;

Stephen Appiah (Free Agent)
Joleon Lescott (Everton)
  To the guy who said that the new owner's of Newcastle will be anil ambani and his brother mukesh ambani, DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!

Anil and Mukesh don't talk to each other. They havent since they split their company the reliance group a couple of years back. So why would they buy a football team together?

Anil has been in talks with Newcastle, as well as Everton so if your going off that DIC would own liverpool now and some other Arabian oil Barron would own Charlton if all it took was talking about buying the club.

Onto the Rumours, no–one will buy anyone except for Man City as the credit crunch has hit everyone else extrmely hard. The only thing that will happen is that Man Utd will finaly tie up tevez to a 5yr deal. . after which he'll go back to Boca Juniors
  Pack in the fantasy football. .Celtic and Manuche,come on children.
Rangers will try and sign 2 defenders in January and look to offload Dailly,Adam and Hemdani,all 3 of free.Defenders could be Evans (Man Utd) on loan till June.Reynolds(M/Well),Berra(Hearts) both permanent. .Those are genuine rumours not made up in some kids bedroom. We will not be looking to sign anyone else but are open to offers for most fringe players.McCulloch,Beasley,Burke,Novo,Velicka,Broadfoot etc.
  With regards to Arsenal's most expensive player being Reyes, he only cost £7.1million upfront, with £3.55million being paid the next and a total of £6.79 million being paid for the rest of his 4 year contract. As he was loaned out after 2, with Madrid picking up the tab. . Wiltord is still the most expensive player bought by Arsenal. Oh, and can LFC fans please be realistic – your squad is not good enough to win the premiership
  To the person who said Reyes £19m do your research, well sunshine do yours i think you'll find he cost £11.8m and the rest of the fee was to be made up from success and apperances and due to length of time he spent at Arsenal and the games he played the fee never rose any higher hence Wiltord is still Arsenal's record transfer.

Now for a wish list i have no inside info i know nobody who knows this person who knows that person

I think Arsenal need 2 CB Mertezacker (spelling ??) could be and relatively cheap option and Steven Taylor or David Wheater or Michael Dawson could be good as they have that British style of rough and ready about them. Maybe a holding CM could be good i.e Yaya Toure or Miguel Veloso but be cautious because getting 1 could hinder the progress of Diaby, Denilson and Ramsey up front very strong anyway but prehaps we could swap Adebayor for Huntelaar as the striking options are very versitile in where they can play i.e Van Persie can play wide on either side same for Eduardo and Vela where Adebayor is a bit 1 dimensional in his game
  Arsenal to sign Cristian Zapata, and maybe stephen appiah. Also don't rule out a move for torsten frings.
  With Anelka in top form this season for Chelsea, expect Drogba to be moved on in the summer. This will be to one of Real Madrid, AC Milan or Inter for around 20 mil. Chelsea will look to sign another striker to partner Anleka and possibly switch to 4–4–2 from their favourite 4–5–1. Possibly Andrei Arshavin who has recently re–stated his desire to move to the premier league and Tottenham will now show less interest as Bent and Pavlyuchenko are starting to perform under Redknapp. Yet another dissapointing defeat for the gunners against Villa will mean that Wenger will ensure that Yaya Toure is signed in January to add experience and more physicality into the young Arsenal squad. Liverpool will sign Rafinha and Gareth Bale in January for a total of 25 mil (Bale 15 mil, Rafinha 10 mil)

The Arsenal Know It All
  Liverpool will sign Jermaine Defoe from Portsmouth for 11 million in january so that Liverpool can bolster their English aspects, and so they can have another quality striker to partner Torres and Keane. They will also bid for Kuba and will sign in for 8 million.Outs will be Jermaine Pennant for 5.5 million to bolton.Also departing will be xabi alonso for 14 million to valencia.
  After not being able to buy Liverpool, Sheik Al– Maktoum has turned his attention to Arsenal. With the club in such poor state, the board will sell for around 800m to 1.2b. Once the takover is complete Arsene Wenger will be sacked. Marco Van Basten will be appointed to take over.

Signings made be Van Basten:
1)Klass–Jan Huntelaar(20mil)
2)Carlos Tevez(32mil)
3)Alberto Aquilani(16mil)
4)Xavi Hernandez(22mil)
5)Joe Cole(24mil)
6)Armand Traore(loan return)
7)Micah Richard(25mil)

Players to be sold:
1) Cesc Fabregas(35mil)
2) Emmanuel Adebayor(22mil)
3) Denilson(8mil)
4) Geal Clichy(12mil)
5) William Gallas(16mil)
6) Nicklas Bendtner(6mil)
7) Abou Diaby(9mil)
And a whole lost of fringe players.

The team will be built around Aaron Ramsey,Theo Walcott,Jack Wilshire,Carlos Vela
  Roy Keane will step up his pursuit of defender Joleon Lescott (Everton) as he is becoming increasingly worried with the lack of depth to his defense.
  Landon Donovan of LA Galaxy is currently on trial at Bayern Munich and Klinsman reportedly likes what he sees. Expect the transfer to go through in January and to break MLS' transfer record.
