I am a taxi driver in Liverpool and just gave Leon Osman and a very well–dressed older gentleman a ride to Anfield. Osman wouldn't tell me what he was doing, but smiled and insisted, "read the news tomorrow, mate. Read the news!"

This is complete bull why would liverpool want Osman and any way everton woudnt sell to the pool

Liverpool Rumours
Arda Turan 3m & Babel
Chamakh 3.5m
Ohnouha Loan


19 Jan 2010 20:39:07
Billy Sharp

Don't want to comment on other posts but I can assure you 100% Billy Sharp will not sign for Barnsley. He will not be allowed to move anywhere for less than £2m. Billy wants ti stay at Doncaster until the summer, would only be interested in premier or return to the Blades, which is not on the cards under KB.


19 Jan 2010 20:39:31
Liverpool fc
there will only be one more leaving in jan and that is babel.
in will be jones and turan and a big maybe on a left back, if not now will we will get one in the summer.
in the summer torres and gerrard will not leave, we will get a big cash injection, but mascherano might leave. reira also might leave but only if we can get one of silva or mata.


19 Jan 2010 20:41:52
Ok word around the city is that Gerrard had a bust up with Pellegrino half time at Reading. Rafa backed Pellegrino and Sammy Lee backed Gerrard. Gerrard then said he didn't want to play for Benitez again. Gerrard has since threatened to hand in a transfer request. If you remember, Babel had no idea he was coming on at half time...he was not even warming up...neither where any other for 15 minutes in that dressing room nobody knew Gerrard was injured? Gerrard has apparently said he does not want to play for Benitez anymore.


19 Jan 2010 19:05:03
Liverpool Have Made 6 Million From The Sales Of Voronin And Dossena.We Are Going To Sell Babel To Ajax, Birmingham Or Marseille For 10 Million.Liverpool Will Offer 12 Million For Kenwyne Jones Of Sunderland.Rafa Benitez wants Manchester City's Nedum Onuoha on loan.Liverpool Are Also Looking At Racing Santander Starlet Sergio Canales.Thats All I Have For Now.Andy9607


19 Jan 2010 19:06:15
Barnsley set to capture the loan signing of Wolves Striker Sylvan Ebanks–Blake


19 Jan 2010 19:12:00
Michael Owen has given up hope of playing at the world cup and is in contact with a club about a loan move till the end of the season to get some much needed match time in to prove to fergie he's worth keeping. Possible loan to Celtic. Cant see it coming off but would be good for both parties.

Celtic also trying to tie down loan signing of senderos also till the end of the season. These deals are good for the Celtic board so they have money for their next manager if Mowbray fails to win the league or if he quits as his family have not yet settled.

Paul Lambert is ready to take over at the helm as soon as he's needed and a clause is in his contract for him to leave current job but only for Celtic or Epl team.

Celtic to try sell McManus but not many takers and only if Senderos deal is secured. StLedger still top defender target. Celtic also trying to sign Argentine striker Fernando Cavenaghi for £4million, again deal depends on other players leaving (McDonald, Brown or McGeady)


19 Jan 2010 19:22:25
Spurs ins:rvn 6 month loan, joe cole, john carew, joe lewis, sandro, richards some in jan and summer
spurs outs:pav, keane, jenas, hutton
liverpool ins:wayne bridge, carlton cole
jack rodwell off to man utd or chelsea in jan or summer from a very reliable source


19 Jan 2010 19:27:57
Not sure if this has appeared on here or not so apologies if i am repeating someone else's rumour.

This isn't actually a rumour but 100% fact.

Sergio Canales's agent (also his father) has been in London over the last 2 days checking out Arsenal's training ground and stadium. As i said this is not a rumour but complete fact. Doesn't mean he will sign for Arsenal but he is at least interested in what they can offer him.


19 Jan 2010 19:37:28
Now there is finally stability at West Ham Gold and Sullivan are looking to improve the squad to get through the rest of the season. For starters we will sign a striker for a small fee – most likely either Jermaine Beckford or James Beatie. We also need a right back and there are strong rumours linking us with buying Rod Fanni or Micah Richards. Hope we can get in a few players to freshen up the squad for the second half of the season.


19 Jan 2010 18:18:21

Celtic FC

A family member who is employed by Celtic has told me that Peter Lawell will sack MOWBRAY this week and has already sounded out Parkhead favourite Paul Lambert to take over.

Expect this to happen before the end of the month..


19 Jan 2010 18:19:25
With Jamal Campbell–Ryce going to Bristol City, Barnsley are lining up an offer for Blackburn Rovers winger Keith Treacy also, expect before the end of the Transfer window Mark Robins to complete to hugely anticipated signing of Billy Sharp from Sheffield United for £800,000 which could rise to £1, 1m


19 Jan 2010 18:20:20
Nice's Anthony Modeste will sign for Burnley for £2.2m within the next week.

Brian Laws was interested in a loan deal for the winger/striker who is currently out on loan, but Nice were surprisingly willing to agree a fee with Burnley for a permanent deal.

This information comes from a reputable source within France. Modeste will link up with fellow U21 striker, Frederick Nimani who has joined Burnley from Monaco.


19 Jan 2010 18:23:37
My friend who seems to have accurate sources and successfully predicted the arrival of Maxi Rodriguez many months ago has said he has heard that both Gerrard and Torres did indees argue with Benitez, even though Benitez has denied it happened. Torres has said to Benitez that if he doesn't have a title–winning squad by the end of next season, he's leaving. I don't know about Gerrard leaving as it wasn't mentioned, but I doubt he would walk out on his boyhood club.


19 Jan 2010 18:29:24
I don't usually talk about Man City rumours but there transfer targets are now sort fo believable :O


Mathieu Flamini LOAN TO BUY
Christian Chivu 18M
Esteban Cambiasso 30M
Juan Roman Riquelme 5M


19 Jan 2010 18:31:53
Barnsley FC

Can someone who understands Polish search google news with "Barnsley FC" for todays news and explain whats said re Barnsley on the polish sites.



19 Jan 2010 17:25:17
What are people taking about Sol Campbell going to QPR or Forest, he's signed at Arsenal!

Liverpool will sign RVN, don't know why its taking so long however


19 Jan 2010 17:27:01
To the guy who said
"Have a friend who is a taxi driver in Glasgow and says he droped David healy off at park head with his agent"
Come on mate, he's a diehard gers fan who has been caught in the past saying distasteful comments about celtic and playing imaginary flutes. Not gonna happen.

Senderos is a possibility for celtic, in the papers today, but also linked with athletico madrid, everton etc so far from a done deal.

No new signings for the gers, and no possible bosmans as we have no money to offer anyone! Hard times, but may see something change when we win the league. Hopefully a takeover? Who knows!
Anybody else got decent rumours about the old firm?


19 Jan 2010 17:27:29

bentley–athletico madrid or sunderland
jenas–aston villa

these deals will be done in the summer and in the january window.


19 Jan 2010 16:20:41
Huntelaar loan to Arsenal raising a lot of rumours in the Netherlands. Several forums and football sites speculate.


19 Jan 2010 16:49:04
To whoever wrote "18 Jan 2010 15:42:09
Gary 'I'm a fatty' Johnson, as he is affectionately known by City fans, was seen scouting two League 2 players recently.

They are Burton Albion's Richard Walker and Cheltenham Town's Justin Richards. He also has reported interest in non–league starlet and left–side wizard Chris Carruthers.

100% true. He sees these players as a good way of continuing the progress of the club.


This, as you know is a load of rubbish. City are an established Championship side, and in their aspirations for the PL would obviously aim higher. Incidently, this rumour does have a hint of truth in it.. but for Rovers. Rovers have expressed an interest in resigning Richard Walker, who plays for a local club of mine, Burton Albion where I have a friend who is a director. Rovers also expressed an interest in Richards in the summer.

Onto more important matters... Addison and Commons will probably have gone by the end of the window. Sorry.



19 Jan 2010 16:50:57
Sunderland to make a double raid on Nottingham Forest, Lee Camp and Chris Cohen will join for a £6 Million double deal.

Forest will almost certainly sign Miles Addison from Derby for £500k and Reading's Shane Long For £750k.

Forest will also make a move to sign Arsenal's Tom Cruise on loan until the end of the season.

Good Source who works within the club.


19 Jan 2010 17:04:42
Gunnarsson and Best are Being watched by new burnley manager brian laws

also he has put robbie blake, deigo penny and richard eckersley and transfer list

I am a taxi driver in Liverpool and just gave Leon Osman and a very well–dressed older gentleman a ride to Anfield. Osman wouldn't tell me what he was doing, but smiled and insisted, "read the news tomorrow, mate. Read the news!"


19 Jan 2010 15:35:01
Cardiff City are set to follow Portsmouth down the administration road.

They are also due in court on February 10th, and the sides who contested the 2008 FA Cup Final could find themselves docked points and have to sell their best players.

Expect the following sales:

Adam Matthews to Arsenal (£3m)
Aaron Widlig to Man Utd (£1m)
Peter Whittingham & Jay Bothroyd to Stoke (combined £3.25m)
Michael Chopra to Fulham (£2.5m)

Joe Ledley's injury means that no team will sign him now, although Everton, Celtic, Sunderland, Stoke, Wigan, Newcastle, Forest and West Ham will move for him on a free in the summer after his operation.

No new players in this month, meaning David Jones will have to turn to the youth.

Have heard that Ridsdale and Jones will quit at the end of the season – both will blame the fans, but there's more to it than thatITK@CCS.


19 Jan 2010 15:36:09
Have a friend who is a taxi driver in Glasgow and says he droped David healy off at park head with his agent


19 Jan 2010 15:43:12
Rumours doing the rounds near Anfield is that Stevie G was not injured, or at least not substantially, and just refused to come out for the second half against Reading. The whole two week injury is a smokescreen for a two week suspension.

Its easy to laugh off but he didn't look injured when he trotted off at half time and Babel had to get ready very quickly. If he was injured surely something would have been said at the start of half time.

Something to think about


19 Jan 2010 15:51:06
Just seen jamesmccarthey and dave kitson coming out of lennoxtown, ps tm 2 b replaced by keane b4 end of nxt week, he has turned us upside down! Hail hail


19 Jan 2010 15:56:32
Just heard from one of my old team mates that ipswich town are to sign sol campbell and lee naylor and keane also wants clinton morrison on loan.


19 Jan 2010 16:00:36
To the guy who said he lives near owen's stables in hawarden, if you did mate then you would know that hawarden is in flintshire, or clwyd in old money, which is wales, sorry mate you've instantly lost all credibility. Anyone on this site who isn't disillusioned and has anything with any substance to report?


19 Jan 2010 16:14:13
Hull City, Blackburn and Ajax are reported being interested in Mido. It is said Mido prefers Ajax because it he would be reunited with his Spurs manager Jol.

Olympique Marseille still interested in Liverpool's Ryan Babel.

Nicolás Lodeiro reported to join Ajax instead of neighbour AZ.


19 Jan 2010 16:17:58
Adel Taarab – Newcastle – 3.1m
Jermaine Beckford – Newcastle – Free end of season
Jack Whilshire – Newcastle – Loan

David Bently – Sunderland – 5.5m
Ben Foster – Sunderland – 4m
Michah Richards – Sunderland – 6m


19 Jan 2010 16:20:18
My wife is on the secretarial staff at Liverpool. She told me last night that there was to be an official statement today denying any half time bust–up during the Reading game. She also told me that Gerrard, Torres and Benayoun are all genuinely injured (NOBODY is suspended as has been viciously rumoured). She doesn't have an ear in Rafa's office and there is very little transfer "gossip" leaked out of the club, but she has said that Rafa's looking to get rid of Ryan Babel. His latest Twitter rant was a crass error of judgement and Rafa has finally lost patience with him and is trying to get a deal sorted for him to be moved on (Sold, not on a Loan), preferably out of the Premiership as he doesn't want Babel facing us on the pitch with a vendeta. Potential suitors have been sounded out over the last few days and things are moving slowly. Birmingham's £9M offer is being lauded around to value him as close as possible to what he cost, but i'd expect the club to take anything over that £9.5M. His departure is LIKELY during this window but NOT GUARANTEED. Galatasaray are one of the clubs being approached to do a deal, via agents, as they appear to have money at the moment (ie £800K for Lucas Neill). She didn't know if there's anything in the Ard Turan swap deal, so that may be just borne out of media speculation. In essence, watch this space as nothing is near completion at this stage and will take a few days to sort out. (NB Look at how many days the Maxi Rodriguez deal took to complete) BILLY TIBBS


19 Jan 2010 14:24:44
Sol campbell to QPR on loan not forest he wouldn't go there cos of the grief he get from the county fans


19 Jan 2010 14:35:04
'19 Jan 2010 13:56:35
Mario Mandzukic is a reported target for Portsmouth, Arsenal and Tottenham.'

Maybe the last two mate, but not Portsmouth.

My mate posts a lot of the rumours on here, and is in the know about what is happening behind the doors of Fratton Park.

The tax appeal was dismissed today, which has set the wheels of administration in motion. There is a High Court hearing now on February 10th, likely to be a plenary session, and the club will be deducted quote 'at least' 10 points – the Premier League could wish to make an example out of them and deduct them a further 10, meaning they'd be all but down before March.

From March 1st until June 15th, bids for the club will be asked for by the administrator KPMG.

One bit of news that's been doing the rounds in the Portsmouth pubs is that Storrie and Jacob could be facing jail terms for fraud and embezzlement.

Read into that what you will – a contact of mine in the East Midlands tells me that, whilst at Notts. County, Storrie asset–stripped them – leading to them almost going out of existence in 2003. Sounds familiar?

Have heard some good news though – there is a potential investor on the horizon, but he/she will not make a move for the club until the current owners are forced out. Not much is known about who he/she is, but I have heard that they are a Swiss resident and made his/her money in commercial finance.


19 Jan 2010 14:36:48
Jon Parkin to sign for Blackpool in next 72 hours in swap deal with Ben Burgess. You heard it here first on very good authority! Bye bye the beast. PNE Forever


19 Jan 2010 14:39:22
Rafa has been told he is safe until the end of the season. He has also been told that he can only sign players for free or on loan in Jan, despite the recent statement by Hicks. With no chance of Kenwyn Jones coming on loan, Rafa will puch for RVN. Menez is also a strong possibility. Parties on all sides are trying to convince Babel to move to Birmingham. They have now made an acceptable offer to LFC, now the player needs to agree. He has burned his bridges with Rafa and been told he has no chance of regular football.


19 Jan 2010 15:01:58
Just finished my shift. Im security at Luton airport....

klaas Jan Huntelaar landed and cleared customs about an hour ago! Wonder where he is going?



19 Jan 2010 15:11:13
Steven Gerrard is set to join Real Madrid in the summer for around £60m. Also Wayne Rooney is Barcelonas top target and could arrive at the Nou Camp for around £65m. Man City are interested in Flamini from AC Milan and could sign him for around £10–£15m. Real Madrid are also interested in signing Fernando Torres for around £60m. AND CESC FABREGAS IS STAYIN FOR ANOTHER YEAR AT LEAST AS HE WANTS TO WIN THE LEAGUE WITH ARSENAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!


19 Jan 2010 15:13:17
RVN comfirmed target from Harry Redknapp

James Beattie in talks with Wolves.

Mario Mandzukic is a reported target for Portsmouth, Arsenal and Tottenham.


19 Jan 2010 13:57:44

I can't save anything Carson will be off loaded at the end of the season. We are putting in a loan bid for Foster – another bad move as our number one goalkeeper is 39 and won't play that much longer. Ward from Sheffield Utd will be joining us and the loon will be farmed out on loan with Jara going into the right back slot.


19 Jan 2010 13:32:23

McGeady to stay until the summer. Everton bid knocked back 6m.

Celtic board to hold onto the cash, and more average players to be brought in on frees !


19 Jan 2010 13:35:45
Jon Macken to kettering town for free
hes not even good


19 Jan 2010 13:47:18
Newcastle United rumours please but no made up ones


19 Jan 2010 12:42:18
I've just heard some surprising information about Manchester Utd and in particular Wayne Rooney.
Apparently Barcelona and Inter Milan have both made enquiries about the England forward. However Inter Milan have been put off by the £65, 000,000 price tag but Barcelona still remain very interested as they see him as the perfect replacement for the aging Thierry Henry. If there is deal to be struck it would not take place in this transfer window, it would most likely be before the start of the world cup.
In my opinion I think it would be a great move for all parties, as Manchester Utd would recieve some much needed money, Barcelona would then have the ultimate attacking line up in Europe and Rooney and England would benefit as he will be playing with some of the most technically gifted players in the world.

R. Ronaldson


19 Jan 2010 12:42:27
To the guy who said this:

100% confirmed news..
barca has been tracing kalou for days and now would bid for him through swap deal..
kalou > barca
messi + £30mil > chelsea .
confirmed ..
u saw it first here...

why would barcelona give chelsea the worlds best player (worth well over 100 million) + 30 million for Kalou who is one of the worst players in top flight football {editor's note – gotta hold my hands up on this one, I was laughing so hard at it that I must have clicked to add it in error. It was meant to be left out.}
Onto the real rumours:
neither Rafa, Torres nor Gerrard will leave but the are on their final straws and the yanks have given Rafa till the end of the season to prove himself and with that they have handed him some extra transfer money. With it he will buy:

Transfers In:

Arda Turan – Galatasaray – 13 million
Maxi Rodriguez –Athletico Madrid – free
Kenwenye Jones – Sunderland – 12 million

Transfers Out:
Babel – Birmingham – 11 million


19 Jan 2010 12:49:32
Bristol City are set to sign Arron Davies who has been released by Nottingham Forest.

The left sided midfielder played under Gary Johnson while at Yeovil.


19 Jan 2010 12:50:13
Birmingham City fans hold your breath manager Alex McLeish is still holding out for Mcgeady & Babel & is willing to have both if he can agree a more realistic fee and wages.Rumours linking him with strikers like Leon Best ot Izzie McLeod are from unreliable sources who have too much time on their hands.Dorrans at WBA may feature evn though he recently signed a new contract


19 Jan 2010 12:58:14
Barca WILL sign Ronney for 70 mil this summer. Man U can't refuse because the need to pay the interest on the debt. Man U to become so bankrupt they will be the new Portsmouth

19 Jan 2010 12:06:13
As a good friend of wullie mcstay paul mcstays brother he told me that mcgeady will not be leaven celtic this window but in the summer to one of these 4 clubs spurs liverpool everton and aston villa . this window celtic are haveing a look at senderos but prob nothing will come out of it pederson will never happen it is time celtic fan relise our board will not give um money because the are to stubern the say the want the best for the club all the want is profit so only players cetic will sing is low key players

as a ture celtic fan i want someone to buy celtic that will invest money not like man city just around 20 million mabe 30 million a season and i would be happy. instead of 7.5million a season sack the board hail hail more then a club


19 Jan 2010 12:07:47
Re Moses

Forest are the only team to have lodged an acceptable bid. However Colin really doesn't want to sell to them so they are desperately trying to get Man City/Arsenal/etc to raise their bids before the payday deadline. Real/Barca rumours are clearly bobbins; he's not that good.

I live probably 10 miles from Michael Owens stables in Hawarden Cheshire. Rumours suggest from locals that he is set to join Celtic on loan. Fergie won't sell Owen as he feel oncwee he regains his sharpness he will be a influential part of the United set up
Berbatov could be on the move to Juventus for 12mil, Miroslav Klose also a 16.5 mil target for Juve. Expect Amauri to join Fiorentina, Man City or Birmingham for 10 mil. Also don't rule out a shock bid for David Trezeguet from Rangers.
No strong links for Liverpool, its all very hazy. Very qweak sources lead Rasmus Elm with a 13 mil switch in teh summer. He only joined AZ this summer but aparently wouldn't say no to ther big time. Dont count on thsi one too much. James Milner to Liverpool would look a near enough one deal if Gerrard left. Expect a 15mil bid for Milner.
Sevilla are really going to take a hit this summer. Expect Diego Capel to join Spurs in a 17mil deal, Jesus Navas to join Barca 24 mil deal and Luis Fabiano to get his chance in teh premier league with Man City weighing up a possible 22 mil deal.

I was driving down Trinity Road this morning on my way to work when i saw Damian Johnson pulling into the Villa car park. Could DJ be involved in the deal that takes Craig Gardener to the Blue side of the city? If so, Villa have got the better side of the deal – Gardener is s£^t and a bluenose. Good riddance.

Up the Villa!!

To all Billy Sharp rumours:
The Gospel according to Billy, he is happy at Donny Rovers and will see out the rest of the season on loan. The Blades can accept as many bids as they want for him but he will not decide on his future until the summer as he hopes that Kevin Blackwell will not be in charge by then so that he can resume his career there.

Whispers are leaking from Russia that CSKA Moscow are bracing themselves for a swoop by Man United in the summer for several of their players. The smokescreen appears to be goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev; Fergie has long been an admirer, but Chelsea and maybe even Arsenal could also be interested. This means Fergie knows Igor's valuation will skyrocket and the winning bidder will need to pay over £20million, something he is not willing to do.
The smokescreen will hide the real targets; winger Milos Krasic will be bidded for £17million or so. The Serb is seen as the kind of rampaging winger we miss nowadays. The second target is 17yr old defender Uros Cosic; his club rate him extremely highly, so a tribunal will likely be needed with Vidic no doubt advising the young Serb on his future.

Sergio Canales the 18 year old starlet is getting attention from AW although the gunners boss is likely going to get scared off by the high price bar set by RMadrid. England under 21 defender Chris Smalling 7mil reckon this will go threw if AW can get the high asking price down. Maxime Gonalons, highly regarded in France he is on AW radar. Mario Mandzukic, potential solution to the lack of fit strikers. Senderos is likely to leave to so called greener pastures in italy were he will continue to be a flop. Louis Saha to be brought in on loan for remainder of season. Victor Moses, is likely to join with his price tag at less than 5mil, AW is said to be an admirer of the young crystal palace forward. Mauro Zarate is a no go as he admits he will remain at Lazio, smokescreen? Edin Dzeko highly priced especially for a mid–season buy, although i can see the happening in the summer for a fee which is touted to be around 25–30 mil euro. Raheem Sterling is also a player who is on AW transfer wish list. Craig Bellamy may be looking for a city exit as he is getting less and less game time and with adey returing from ANC i can see him at least going to the gunners on a loan deal. Another member from the invincibles years may be returning to Arsenal, CK model Freddie Ljungberg, there have been three newspaper articles touting this. FCB are setting up big money moves for Arshavin and Fabergas, AW is unable to take these in to even slight consideration as Arsenal are trying to mount a title bid, so he will likely respond to these offers by simply asking for Messi + Ibra, In other words Barca go FK YOURSELF. Stefan Kiesling is highly rated by AW, the bayer Leverkusen front man would provide that size that the team has been lacking. Carlton Cole likely a no go but is still continually being heavily linked with the gunners.Robert Green is said to be possibly on his way to the gunners as a replacement for the Arsenal weak link in the chain Almunia. Igor Akinfev is also a possible replacement although very expensive, the 23 year old who plays for CSKA is viewed as the best young prospect between the sticks. Brende Hangeland is another player who is likely to be on his way to Arsenal as Fulham will strugle to hold on to him, just who Arsenal need at the back, Big strong smart defender. Jimmy Briand maybe the most likely signing as he is relatively cheap, and french fits the AW signing scheme, although in my opinion he will not add anything to a squad already packed with wingers. Mario Balotelli, immence young Italian player who AW has spoke highly of, likely to be out bid with the likes of city and RMadrid in contention. AW is set to rener interst in Bafetimbi Gomis. Mesu Ozil had admited that he wants to become a gunner and his agent declined to comment as he did not want to speculate, reason being is if this goes to public deal will be off that why AW keeps his cards close to his chest, City scenario if they hear a top team wants a player they will likely bid so sushh. One or two of these deals will likely come off but don't expect to much, In Arsene we trust. Have to laugh at the Glazers latest cry for help. Asking the players to help them out of dept hate to say it but you should all take a page out of AW book. Arsenal turned over profits last year of i think 223 mil ? Glazers should ask minted Liverpool to bail them out.

I have it on good authority that non league manager Thomas Foster will be considered should the Bournemouth situation get any worse.

ARSENAL will sign Canales at the end of the season, giving Santander a fee of £3m to cancel the complex contract that he currently has (expires at end of season but if he plays so many minutes he has to sign a new one).
Wenger will also sign Huntelaar on loan and jump infront of Man City to sign Flamini back on loan.

19 Jan 2010 00:16:32
To the person who said about Rafa being sacked, i heard something similar but it was nothing to do with the result but the right manager shortly becoming available. Odds closing on King Kenny for caretaker position till end of season.


19 Jan 2010 00:19:23
Torres to be a Man City player by end of January!!
Gerrard to walk out on Liverpool at the end of season – Spain the preferred destination.

Real rumours from scotland

First of all, the celtic rumours are unbelievably false and very very laughable! first it was keane who was joining then bojan, then it was babel and now van nistelroy! where will it end? whos next torres?? celtic are signing players like fortune and nguemo why would they suddenly start signing world class players? stop being delusional and deal with facts please. Like the fact scotland cannot attract big name signings anymore,

real celtic rumours now.

celtic will be signing more asian players with no quality as the asian markets provides good money for the club, also expect mcgeady to leave next week to another english club(not birmingham but everton!) celtic will hold onto mcdonald, mowbray needs the goals and he usually provides them.
mowbray will make n'guemo captain and build the team around him

real rangers rumours...

boyd to sign new extension too stay at rangers for life, hes publicly stated countless times that he has no desire to leave, he would find it difficult to be scoring for anyone but rangers! expect fleck to be sold, walter does not like his attitude and his latest contract rejection was the last straw. as for danny wilson its a bit of a hit and miss because once man utd come calling, theres only going to be one outcome im afraid! but expect a substantial bid of somewhere in the region of 4million + an additional 2million depending on games etc


19 Jan 2010 01:19:52
Some information that I have received regarding Manchester United: The Glazers will sell Manchester United for a healthy 1.3 Billion minus the debt. This will not be to the Chinese group based in Thailand but rather to Qatari investors including members of the ruling dynasty. Manchester will put more money into the club with Alex Ferguson staying to groom the incoming gaffer. I have no idea who this is. Players will be bought and sold in the summer, but Alex still insists he will not spend "silly money". Liverpool will have a hard time being sold because of a grounds and zoning issue. Liverpool desperately need a new ground to compete with the rest of the league. I hope that they do get that sorted out because many Liverpool supporters are among the best in the world although the more vocal supporters are the fairest weather fans who will drop the club at the first sign of trouble. I hear a defender and striker will be signed in the summer with Liverpool putting a lot of emphasis on their youth program. Now I don't have any rumours on my beloved Cottagers. Any one have any info on Fulham? (I would like them to sign McGeady but I have not heard anything concerning him.


19 Jan 2010 02:05:32
To the yido having a go at LFC and Newcastle for haying on managers. I'd like to take you back to the year you won the Carling Cup under Ramos. You thought he was the next baby Jesus. Then what happens, you start "underachieving" again and he's gone. Let's face it, football is a fickle fickle game, however I task you to find a more loyal fan than a Liverpool fan. We've had more than our fair share of poor seasons (considering the pedigree of our club, if you want a truly dissapointing fall from grace look at Leeds or Nots forest) and we finally thought that after a promising 2008/09 season we could mount a serious challenge. However the board of directors and owners conspired to waste yet another season.
I feel extremely sorry for Rafa, we all know he is a stuborn, petulant child at times and he buys some wrongens but he is a great manager and not many managers would put up with such abuse and torture.
I look forward to wednesday and putting you back on your Europa league (at best) perch.

Now for the rumours. My bro works with Kelly dalglish and has confirmed no big departures from the dressing room or back room staff. Mascherano may be allowed to leave however, but only for a large amount. This was one of the reasons rafa got maxi in, to keep him happy. Expect an average striker coming in: no big names. Turan won't happen due to Babels poor price tag. Rafa will just let him rot on the bench. Ngog and Kuyt will play up top with Riera (after having a transfer request withdrawn when Barce said they didn't want him anymore) and mascherano and aqualani/lucas.
We will finish 4th this season then expect rebuilding in the summer!



19 Jan 2010 03:31:17
Minecfc–are you serious nani plus 8million for mcgeady, a 17million international player plus 8million going to the spl?
that is one of the silliest things ive read on here
dont know why people make stuff up, it ruins the site
why are liverpool getting such a hard time they have been rubbish for years and were never seriously going to challenge man utd chelsea with the squad they have
torres is only good for around 15 goals per season on average, if you look at his athletico days, with all the injuries hes picking up that looks set to continue, not good enough when he is your only striker
to my team Man u, heard recently the ferguson will go in the summer, with his first choice to replace him being laurent blanc
laurent blanc won't say anything until the summer
but his priority signings would be gourcuff, we need a new playmaker and hugo lloris the best young goalkeeper in the world to replace the departing van der sar
this was leaked in france



19 Jan 2010 04:48:11
Some Liverpool genuine rumour please


19 Jan 2010 07:45:57
To the person who wrote:

"Gary 'I'm a fatty' Johnson, as he is affectionately known by City fans, was seen scouting two League 2 players recently.

They are Burton Albion's Richard Walker and Cheltenham Town's Justin Richards. He also has reported interest in non–league starlet and left–side wizard Chris Carruthers.

100% true. He sees these players as a good way of continuing the progress of the club.


As we all know, City would not be after that pedigree of players. They, being like us, a championship club, would aim much higher. Being local to Burton however, I know that Rovers are actually looking to resign Walker this window, and know from a Cheltenham board member that Richards has been a target for the Gas in the past.

Addison and Commons to go in this window :(

Any hibs transfer news anyone ?


18 Jan 2010 23:06:19
I was at the Nottingham Forest Reading game on Saturday and I was rather alarmed to be sitting next to a man in a sunderland track suit. I didn't think much of this at the start but when it got to half time he started compiling note about Lee Camp ! I asked him about this and he said he has been instructed to create a report about the. Tricky trees goalkeeper by Steve Bruce as he thinks his goalkeepers aren't up to the premiership standard !
I personally think that Camp would snap the hand off anyone who offers him PL football as he was quoted today ( monday ) that he would love to play in the world cup but he would only be considered if he was in the top flight and judging by the form he is in at the moment he could be going to Sunderland and South Africa !


18 Jan 2010 23:10:00
