Sean St Ledger has refused to play for leicester ever again under pearsons reign
It is rumoured a bust up over a joke(st ledger took personally after the game)
He is set to go on strike in order to push through a move to some team like Ipswich!

Glad we can get rid; LCFC(25)(11)He has already turned ipswich down, heard leeds are after him but wages could be stumbling blockWhen did he turn Ipswich down? Leicester pulled out as he was needed as cover whilst other players injured or at Africa Cup of Nations. Ipswich may stil happen equally so may Leeds or somewhere else ...Strange he would want to be playing in league 1 in the not too distant future,I can't believe Nigel Pearson cracked a joke!!
No flipping way!!I remeber St Ledger being a little gob sht on that Ron Atkinson doc. when he was with POSH, they should sling him in the reserves and let him rot.
This being said, I wouldn't be suprised if someone like West Ham tried to nab him on the cheap, hoping he might pipe down under a firmer boss and being at a big club he wouldn't be so "big time"Strange how he played against forest then!! he's stayingWest ham a big club???? Deluded!St Ledger was offered in a swap deal for wes morgan after the game tuesday. morgan's agent mulling over new contract offer from forest has he is seen as a key player

And a £2million bid rejected for crewes nick powell
Jewell will up his bids for both of them with jewell willing to pay up to £5million for the lot!(13)(17)Jewel will need to pay at least £5 million for just Pearce and Ward, if not more.Jewell better be careful offering 1 million for the 2 pompey lads , he may own the whole club for that !!


18 Jan 2012 21:43:37
Leeds uniteds Adam Clayton is in talks with Bolton(32)(13) 

What's your source mate?I can't say mate but I swear this is 100% true, I aint saying he will go but he is in talksWe can't sell him. Simple as. We'd have no recognised central players. Michael Brown and Mika Vayrynen don't count; they sit in front of the back-four. Unless Leeds have a replacement ready, this shouldn't be allowed to happen. But then, this is Leeds.. I have no idea what to expect anymore.
wallyBates would sell his motherIts all to do with wear and tear on the Elland Road pitch they want the players to keep off the middle so we are going to play with 4 wingers

A dicky bird told me that stoke could be in for drogba as chelsea want begovic will get drogba on loan plus 10mil for begovic(13)(40)Lol! Stoke gonna match the wages the chinese or Anzhi will offer , he will go to who ever pays the most....that aint StokeYour dicky bird wants shootingDrogba on the bench at Stoke...can't see it happeningIf he's coming on loan stoke would do a deal where chelsea still pay most of his wages...i find it kind of believablePeter crouch was on double what stoke pay him why did he sign? ..the other club pays the player off out of the cash from the ssale to top his wages up ..meaning they get a player whos on a 10m 2 year contract off there books ..that means even tho they pay the payer off..with the sale of the money and what they can get off there wage buget they actully make what the players wages would cost them over the 2years..peter crouch a exampleDrogba wouldnt handle the hard stoke croud on his back if he dont give 200%You should shoot that little bird it tells lies

Rumours are rife that David weir well be joining the ever growing Scottish brigade down in Cardiff on a free transfer in the next few days(11)(20)Cardiff have an army of centre backs, so this is very unlikely. Darcy Blake can't get in the side and is a better option than an old ScotReally, where are they rife, certtainly not in CardiffNCFC raided Scotland when Roeder was in charge! look what happened... 1st division players.


18 Jan 2012 20:56:47
Leicester City are lining up a bid for Manchester United Midfielder Danny Drinkwater who is currently on loan at Barnsley.

18 Jan 2012 20:56:43
Hannover striker Mohammed Abdellaoue to Norwich for 3-4 million(17)(15)Nothing in the papers here about Moa joining Norwich but there is talk of Diouf joining Hannover to partner him up front; United-spiss kan bli Moa-makker: - United striker can be Moa's partner

18 Jan 2012 20:49:20
Sunderland have inquired over the availability of Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic as Martin O'Neill views the Bosnian as an improvement on current 'keeper Mignolet. However, it would take a significant offer to interest Stoke, who have no need to sell their big players.(9)(33)What a load of garbage!!! we have a 9 million keeper the next repulic of Ireland keeper behind shay given and our first chioce belgian keeper mignoletI find this hard to believe as we have westwood and craig gordon and have just let a keeper go on loanKeepers are NOT our problem... simple asTut tut you need a goal scorer just like cisse and ba . SmbBegovic would not be the anwser anyway.. he stinks..Gordon, Mignolet and Westwood all better than poor Begovic, stop talking utter rubbish, no geordie we don't need to panic buy, they are both using you as a stepping stone to actual big clubsHes just signed a 5yr new contract last month ..and hes a goal keeper not god!! he wont stop sunderland leaking goalsBullst another pathetic geordie wum...we have three keepers all better than anything at StokeHe would probably cost Sunderland £10 million +.

Aberdeen set to sign Danny Swanson on a pre-contract from Dundee Utd.(6)(12)Given his injury problems, it seems unlikely. Or, should that read, I hope it is unlikely?


18 Jan 2012 20:11:12
Heard Lukaku may be going to Norwich on loan. Also we have apparently made a 3.5m bid for Burnley's Jay Rodriguez(11)(24)Well, the Lukaku bit, is highly unlikely to be completely honest, this is the first I have heard of it, and really don't see it happening at all. But I have also heard the Jay Rodriguez rumour.Lukaku cannot go on loan this season! as he has already played for two clubs. Fifa rules n u heard wrong my friendLukaku can go out on loan cause it is 2012 he can't play for 3 teams in one calendar yearHe can go out on loan actually! But still won't happenNope sorry he it is

Article 5.3
Players may be registered with a maximum of three clubs during
one season. During this period, the player is only eligible to play
official matches for two clubsHe cant, the rule is he cant play for 3 clubs in 1 season.. not a calender year, hence the reason he said in his interview the other day he cant go on loan until next season18 Jan 2012 22:31:33
Lukaku is considering a loan move can't go out on loan and why would norwich put a bid 3.5m when Burnley rejected 5m from Southampton


18 Jan 2012 20:09:21
Brighton have expressed an interest in Norwich City's Andrew Crofts. The ex-Brighton skipper is keen on making a return the Albion after Leeds accept an improved offer for Jonny Howson.

18 Jan 2012 20:01:26
Heard through the grape vine, Martin O'Neill is in talks with old villa favourite petrov, and has had a fee (accepted) for rhodes believed to be in the region of 6.5 million..
Unless a very close source to the medical staff is telling lies, I was also the first person to link bendtner to sunderland in the summer, watch this space.(16)(23)Can't see us signing petrov, our midfield picks itself (larsson cattermole vaughn mcclean)Heard the same on Petrov. MON & Petrov have same agent (who is from Sunderland - who I know!) and has been a done deal for a while. Interesting on Rhodes though. I also know someone high up on medical staff, so will ask that one!No chance on Rhodes. Petrov maybe but there is no way a prem team is going to put up £6.5million for a striker who has had one good season in league 2? People are getting ridiculous about this Rhodes situation.Petrov perhaps..but even thats doubtful as the word is..hes happy with his midfield staff...Rhodes no chance at all , the club already has its fair share of striking potentialNo chance on Rhodes cocker - he's going nowhere.League 2??? league 1 mate and 25 goals in 25 games! plus 5 hat tricks this season club and country! 20 goals last 2 seasons broke into scotland full squad, stuart pearce wants him to swith elegiance still only 21! ye he's over rated!
Sunderland can have alan lee!
up front with bendtner lolMartin aint got 6.5 millionI know he aint got 6.5 million he has more at his disposal


18 Jan 2012 19:54:06
Bristol City are trying to sign Rangers winger Greig Wylde but Bolton are keen too. Bolton are also keen on Goian from Rangers but might have to wait until last day of the window.(9)(14)


18 Jan 2012 19:52:37
Shamrock Rovers want Watford goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin.(15)(4)Gilmartin would probably drop the pen whilst trying to sign the contract.

United to offer 20 mill in cash and Ashley Young to Spurs for Bale. Harry trying to get 25 in cash and Rio as well as Young.(15)(45)Haha dont be Stupid, im a newcastle fan and Bale is worth much more than that in the current market..

Rio is worth about £3million
Young is worth about £10million(hes over-rated)

Bale is easily worth about £60million(only in the current market)Are you insane?Nice 1 mate, your obviously trying to break onto the comedy circuit. rio is finished and a swap for bale wouldn`t be tempting even if rooney was part of the deal. sorry i cant stop laughing.I know Bale and he is staying till the Summer atleast said his parentsdebbie and frankLol all your spurs fans make me crack up! go on about how young is overrated then go and value bale at £60m lol get real would you! bales worth no more than £25m tops. we dnt want/need bale(hes just a no so gd valencia/nani anyway) if anything it would be modric were after! so numpties

Nicky Manard to go to Swansea City for 3.5 million pounds and Albert Adomah to Fulham for 2.5 million pounds.(9)(25)Adomah is contracted until 2014 City turned down 6 million for Maynard in Aug he had 12 months left on his contract it would take at least double that for city to turn their heads with Adomah

Celtic to report Southampton for tapping up Hooper.
they also reiterate that Hooper is not for sale, and wont entertain any bids unless its silly money and quoted Carrol again at 35 mill(12)(32)He plays in the Sunday pub league on par with league 1 bottom half of the championship never worth 7 mSouthampton have acted in a purely professional manner it is probably lennon saying this to try to put the inevitable offPoor little CelticWhy would mighty southhampton want a player that plays in a pub league on par with league 1??????This "story" has apsolutly no substance.Charlie Adam 6mill from pub team Hopper worth double that DonkeyHow can Celtic compare Hooper to Carroll.. he's playing in a league equivalent to probably League 1 thaz only 2 teams in the scottish league and both of them for a couple of seasons would struggle in the Championship.. and also Hooper doesnt even have a very good record in Scotland to be quoted a price so high its something like 1 in 3More like poor little Southampton! fact is Celtic have hardly no debt, we sit at the top, are fighting for a title and a treble (to make some history), we donā€™t want/need to sell, we play in Europe (this year in the hardest group in Europa, which we should have went thru if not only for an own goal and a penalty that never was one, other teams coach saying we should have advanced, as well could play better teams then that in the epl), ppl do to Celtic to try and get into international team, we are worldwide in which one old firm game (which is highly rated in top old firms) is watched by more ppl then anyone of your games. With euro 2012 we are doing smart business in holding them until that is finished and have some trophies from the spl which the price is going to go way up for our players. So play for Celtic (best fans in the world quoted from players around the world, Celtic park 60000 strong and is known for Europe nights and players wanting to play in those nights) or southampton (which you are not in the Barclays yet but you think you are and if so would never come close to the top 8 but fight just to stay in, all you can offer is more money) ā€¦this is not to bring down southampton but for you to wake up and realize Celtic is better and bigger and players would come here before your team. Donā€™t be made because a spl team said no to you so stop complaining!I ain't complaining and agree with a lot in your essay. Just think it's really funny that your lot have got so uptight about the sheer audacity of little old Southampton bidding for your best striker that your now accusing Adkins of tapping up lol. You invite my 'poor little Celtic' sarcasm. Anyway, it's all a smokescreen 'cos Wayne Rooney is our real target!Tapping up what are u on about they've made 3 bids all to celtic not tapping up. the figures about wages are made up by the media. Also hooper wants out of celtic as he feels saints are a bigger club and wants to reunite with nigel adkins after he fell out with lennon earlier in the season. face the facts saints are in a much better financial situation than celtic (who are in massive amounts of debt unlike saints) bid to be excepted and deal to go through on friday eveningLol, we are not uptight about a bid, we expect bids from the English clubs or any club for that matter. This is why players go to the team so why cant Celtic cash in on big deals? (since epl have all the money) are we not allowed? We have good young talent which we tend to buy low and sell on for profit because we donā€™t get the huge TV money as in England. The problem is when we say no and they keep coming in with bids (that are too low, and why is it impossible to think a player could be worth 10-30 mill from spl, what if messi was in the spl? Would he be worth only 3-5 mill? lol) and there is a time when you say enough, because they are building a team after all. But the whole tapping thing donā€™t know if the story is true and donā€™t know what tapping up means? But I imagine its tampering.

For the guy who said a deal would be done on Friday, I canā€™t say I believe you for the fact that you think Celtic ā€œare in massive debtā€. It is rangers dude who have a 50 mill tax bill/case going on who might fold or go into administration. Celtic have less then half a mill in debt this is why we are holding out, however if a deal is done the money will only help us but Iā€™m sure he is staying this window. So stop making things up for the hell of it and know some facts before you do.Love how desperate Celtic fans are to make up stuff like this...Wish saints fans would get a grip celtic are not in massive debt ffsTapping up!?!? Give it a rest! Only the other day in the Daily Record Lennon was quoted as saying "Southampton have done everything the right way!".

Just mindless scaremongering on here!Why are Saints fans convinced Celtic are in massive amounts of debt? we were 700k (basically nothing in football terms) in the red just before the season started and since then we have brought in 5million+ in Europa league revenue and 1million+ from the sale of Jos. We are actually in the black and if truth be told in a much better financial position than almost any other club in Europe.

Rangers are in massive amounts of debt.If Adkins is speaking to him about a move then it is tapping up.


18 Jan 2012 19:16:05
Barnsley will sign Ben Tozer (Defender) Lander Gabilondo (Midfielder) and Mark Allott (Midfielder)(11)(7)


18 Jan 2012 19:15:30
Barnsley to sign Jason Roberts this week and also vaz te is staying and will think about a new contract, also signing Jacobs from Northampton(13)(8)


18 Jan 2012 19:10:06
Martin O'Neill will raid his old club Aston Villa for Gabriel Agbonlahor for a fee in the region of 6m as Villa are on the brink of signing Kevin Doyle from Wolves. Also on Sunderland's radar is Liverpool's forgotton man Aurelio, the left back constantly overlooked by Dalglish and desparately wants out. Scott Dann and James Collins are also being linked with a move to the Stadium Of Light(22)(22)Had to laugh at your comment, "Liverpools
forgotton man aurelio the left back constantly overlooked by Dalglish,"
He is a good player but he's constantly wherever you copied and pasted
the comments from i would check on them
before i passed them on

Deano95Gabby would cost more, Aurelio would keep the physios employedWhat BS Gabby doesnt want to leave villa everGabby will never leave Villa unless he's told he has to leaveGabby for 6mill now we know thats lies he is villas best player!If he's villas best player then they're in trouble..Where are you going to get the money fromGabby has been quality this season and can trouble any defence. 6mil is a joke...would be closer to 20 in the current market but as a true villa fan he wouldn't go anywhere, especially to a smaller club like Sunderland.

Watford have had a double bid for joel ward and jason pearce rejected. Source: Sky sports(9)(11)Watford..u sure? fail!
"Sky Sports understands Portsmouth have rejected a double bid from Ipswich for Joel Ward and Jason Pearce. Click here for the full story."Sky did report that Watford had made a bid but turns out its rubbish.Sky wrote a report about Watford then found out it was Ipswich so changed the word Watford to Ipswich lol!

Just heard from a cleaner at the DW that Conor Smmon has had contact with Tottenham over a £5 million move as they are ready to sell Pavlychenko to Bolton(4)(32)Same guy that played up here 4 killie and has scored bout 1 goal lololol nice one ya numptyHow the hell would a cleaner know that... i'm sure dave whelen negotiates multi million pound business deals in front of the cleaners and tea ladies........... ye thats how he got where he is today!


18 Jan 2012 18:48:26
Andrew Crofts is not down the pecking order, and is not looking to leave. I know him, and he is very very happy with his life and football at the moment, and is very proud of what the club and he has achieved in such a short space of time. Also, he is just the type of player Lambert wants.(17)(9)I agree with all of this, apart from the part where you claim to know himHaha, I'm not claiming to be hes friend. I've done work for him.Could be true, with Howson joining we are going to have far too many midfielders and crofts isn`t a regular now so will be pushed further down pecking order. Howson Johnson and Fox all ahead of him


18 Jan 2012 18:48:05
Marcello Trotta will sign on loan for Birmingham City. He has recently left Wycombe after his loan stint, and Birmingham are in need of a Striker.(12)(5)We have more chance of signing Rodney Trotta!I think you may get lucky, as long as he would get regular games


18 Jan 2012 18:37:51
Jay Rodriguez to sign for Norwich before weekends games for between 4-5 Million(17)(28)Rejected 4.5 in the summer ... he's scored 14 already half way through the season already so try again mate.Just because Burnley turned down 4.5M last summer does not mean they won't take it or even less now. Burnley are probably in their last season of parachute payments from PL relegation and are not a rich club, since you don't exactly get a huge average attendance and they may just need the cash, perhaps he has also indicated that he wants to leave, so board may decide to accept best offer they can get.I recon we have had a look at him, but I don't believe we have 4-5 million to spend on one player.Southampton dont have the money


18 Jan 2012 18:36:45
tommy smith for a return to watford?

Watford have a double bid for Joel ward and Jason pearce rejected by Portsmouth. However with the new financial backing, it is highly expected that watford will bid again, and it is to be expected to be accepted to help balance the books for Portsmouth.

Anyone heard about out-of-contract John Rooney on his way to Oakwell? Ex-Everton trainee, recent draft at NY Red Bulls, summer trialist at Derby County and brother of Wayne!

The only reason John Rooney is being linked with all these clubs is because his brother is Wayne. He's not good enough for the championship(8)(5)I live in nyc and have seen the redbull play if he cant get into that team he 's barely good enough for the 2nd divSame could have been said of marc pulis' son anthony but he played for southampton

Can anybody confirm QPR interest in Blackpool defender Ian Evett ?(1)(22)A load of rubbish. They will go for better CB's than him. Such as the two they are actually interested in, Samba and AlexDont talk rubbish, he played at QPR under Holloway and was crap then and even crapper than Gabbidon, and thats saying sumthingFolks, just because QPR are prepared to offer big wages and are prepared to offer large transfer fees, its not automatic that players will want to join QPR, especially if more attractive and more established premier or European clubs are interested in the same players.
Chelsea excepts QPR bid, ok but he still needs to agree terms, and players like him will likely want to go to a more established club. If the player only signs because of the money, he's the wrong choice anyway for a relegation scrap.Yeah this is true (the third reply) not the original comment, but we can d better than him!!


18 Jan 2012 17:56:38
Newcastle update
Mike ashley is spending because hes realised newcastle have a real chance of qualifying for europe which will cover any money he does spend this season, throughout the season so far newcastle have stayed in touch with the top teams despite a run of nine games without a win newcastle are level with arsenal ahead of liverpool and only a few points off chelsea, im not saying they will finish top four but they got as much chance as anyone to finish 5th

Demba Ba will sign a new contract at newcastle with a bigger buy out clause to ensure the club makes the most  out of him if they decide sell, as for cisse getting the number 9 shirt dont read to much into it ba is no different to most african players very supersticious about his number, ba has had no. 19 at most of the teams hes played and wouldnt change even if hed been offered the number 9..
Newcastle also looking to further strengthen the squad; 
Aly cissokho has stated he his waiting on the green light from lyon before holding talks with newcastle any deal would be worth around  8 million 
Yohan belanouane is reported to have been scouted by newcastle recently with cesena willing to let him go out on loan,
Newcastle also reported to interested in montpellier centre back mapou yanga mbiwa with the frenchman likely to be available for around about 7 million
Newcastle likely to sign someone completely out of the blue as with cisse they were linked 7 different strikers before they signed him(9)(12)Ashley has had a 5 year plan in place since he started wot do you no things are starting to fall into place now lucky or a master stroke I believe the latter Ashley didn't become a billionaire over night just sum thing to think aboutSuddenly we are getting "Ashley in" threads and in Pardew we trust-oh what short memories!its a Geordie love in for the Cockney mafia!i told you earlier we Cockneys are good people who yopu will learn to trust and admireIf you are so blinkered to believe that Ashley has desires to make NUFC a force in PL, you are as blinkered as him?! He has made a signing to appease the fans NOW, before he sells 3 to 4 players before the end of Jan for profit and strips your squad.. again!. Have you not realised this yet...?Newcastle will not get champions league footbal never will there awful YNWAIf you read the post correctly, it states newcastle have as much chance as anyone for 5th, not 4th which is champ league place, ...You need to do your homework on why there is a low get out clause in Ba's contract before making up storiesThe reason why the Newcastle fans were so against Ashley is becasue he has never once come out and said what he wanted to do witht he club and never once done an interview. Also, seeing players sold is never good, the fact was that all Newcastle fans were expecting the Toon to sign a strike partner for Caroll and not sell him on deadline day. i have to be honest I was unsure if Demba Ba was going to be a prolific as he has been this season. But as the ship is sailing along, I am happy, still a little worried as I expect Ashley to do something out of the blue ie sell Tiote, Ba and Cabaye this transfer window... we shall have to see, but at the moment it is all good.Qualifying for the Europa League won't cover costs of multi-million pound buys, even if you go on to win it.You need to seriously wise up mate, Cisse has been brought in becuase Ba is going out the door with Tiote and Cabaye, the person above who mention about stripping the squad was spot on, thats exactly what Ashley is doing and due to you good form, you all cant see it, the 37 million for Carroll went straight in Ashleys back pocket as will the assetts from the three outgoing players above, trust me it will happen. As for 5 year plans, as far as the City of London is concerned, your club is still currently up for sale...check it outPrize money for winning europa league is apparantely 3mill and you will still recieve money depending on how far you proceed, im not going to sit hear and say were gunna win it its anyones guess who coul win it. however even qualifying for europe brings with it increased revenue from the following, prize money from the premier league based on postion required to qualify for europa, increase gate sales from more matches, merchandising, broadcasting rights etcMay i remind you newcastle turned down 4 offers for carrol he was the one that wanted to leave

Mark Howard won't be signing a new contract with Blackpool and will instead join Watford in the January transfer window.
What a joke why would he go to Watford 2 not play as number1 he will sign at Blackpool with Blackpool more likely 2 be in perm next year over Watford.(6)(3)Watford are after a keeper, as Rene Gilmartin is on his way out of the club. Rookie Jonathan Bond is the only backup. Sean Dyche wants real competition with Scott Loach for the No 1 jersey.I have heard this too, Gilmartin off and Howard to come in to challenge for number one with Loach.I could actually see watford beating pool to the playoffs tbhWatford to beat bpool to the play offs you d be lucky to avoid the drop wot would take a lot more than bad luck to come below those sorry teams at the bottom

Bruce Grobbelar was told by a source inside Liverpool football club that they were very close too signing Teixera along with an as yet unnamed striker. Grobbelar put 2 and 2 together and assumed as many would that Liverpool would be signing David Teixera, he is young, Uruguayan, moved from Urugauy to Gronnigen in Holland at age 19 same as Suarez and most importantly the now 20-year old has scored 7 league goals in 10 games but even though I assumed we were signing David Teixera aswell Bruce was wrong. Liverpool were very close to a deal for Teixera but it was a different Teixera, they have just completed a £1m deal for Sportin Lisbon's highly rated attacking midfielder Joao Teixera dubbed the 'next Deco'. Liverpool however are very close on a striker and unlike Teixera a starlet for the future this is one who could make an immediate impact, Moussa Sow is the man . Lille have signed former Anfield target Nolan Roux this morning for £6.6m he is going to replace Sow who wants out, Liverpool have been in talks with Lille trying to include Joe Cole in any deal and a bid of around £6m plus Joe Cole is on the table only problem is this afternoon Fenerbache have made a £10m bid for Sow but I still believe we can nab him Daglish knows he needs a goal scorer. Liverpool may not move for anyone if they fail with a move for Sow although they are rumoured to be joining Tottenham in the race for Loic Remy but as with anything in this transfer window we will have to wait and see while taking 80-90% of stories with a pinch of salt.(16)(10)He never actually mentioned any names, all he said was a south American playing in the Netherlands, other people, obviously yourself being one of them have got it wrong, still plenty of time left

Gary Hooper not joining Southampton due to ridiculously hgh asking price set by Neil Lennon. Saints will turn their attention towards Jordan Rhodes.(16)(17)Ridiculously high lets you keep your star players!In what way is it ridiculous? The player is under contract, the manager doesn't want to sell, the club don't have to and the player said he is happy. Oh i forgot you're a huge club just because you might be playing in a good league next season riding on the coat tails of the big 6 just like the rest of the league. We should instantly roll over and give you him for £100,000So hooper costs too much, but 10 million for rhodes isntHooper no up ta championship level anywayJordan Rhodes will NOT be leaving Huddersfield this transfer window. 100%.What part of do not want to sell the player does southampton not understandHopper is overated, playing in a crappy league he is made to look reasonable, southampton can win the championship without his services and by a good quality stiker in the summer..If celtic think that playing in a league that is not even as good as L1 means they can state stupid sums for players then we will wait til Rangers win the SPL again & then go back in for him. IMHO he will sign by the end of Jan anywaySunderland after RHODES for 7 millionHe's not up to championship now!!?because use can't afford him and he doesn't want to go! Every Southampton fan and their dog wanted hoops down there, good luck with Rhodes aswell...... Ha ha no chance!Only 'cos use up there would have never lived it downHe won't waste his time at Southampton, I'm sure he can aim higher than that.No up to chamionship level
lol that the championship level he out scored carroll in with scunnyUse won't get rhodes. Use won't get hooper. Use won't get promoted.Rhodes isn't going anytwhere. The lad wanted to go to West Ham but the club are refusing to sell. When asked Huddersfield said a minimum of £8million. This is a kid thats had one good season in league two. The championship and especially the Prem are 100 times harder than league two. Rhodes is a real talent, but lets be realistic.

And as for Hooper, how would Southampton fans feel if someone was trying to tap up and bully their club into selling Lambert? Or Lallana? They would be on here crying their eyes out. He plays for Celtic in the SPL which is a similar standard, but they can offer him Europe.

Saints fans need to get a grip. You have an incredible manager who is doing wonders for your club and ever since most saints fans think they are god's gift. Give it a rest lads. Be happy with what you've got.I agree with you about Rhodes as far as this t/f window is concerned. As for Hooper there has been no tapping up and Southampton bullying the 'mighty' Celtic!? C'mon you gotta agree that's funny. Arsenal 'bullied' us to get Chamberlain, who had less than 1 good season in league 2, but we made sure we got more than £8M. Every bottom half Prem team and Newcastle have been linked with Lambert on these pages in the last couple of weeks, also Lallana, Fonte and Schneiderlin and even Chaplow to Burnley,ha! Most Saints fans don't think we are god's gift but it is now the turn of our immature fans to respond.

Bates authorizing £30K a week, No Chance!

Hooper is signing for Southampton before the weekend. He won't be playing on Monday but will be at the match. He has personally spoken to Adkins and all contract details have been agreed, these will be put on paper once Celtic accept. The Celtic board turned around earlier in the week and gave Southampton an idea of what to bid which Southampton are going to do(7million + add ons(15)(19)Getting boring with this hooper crap who is this team that's in for him SouthwellGary Hooper has NOT spoke to Nigel Adkins throughout this whole bidding process...I have spoke to Gary regarding this only yesterday. He has distanced himself from the whole thing..Celtic have said they wont renogotiate on a new deal so he is left feeling in limbo.
If the bid is accepted by Celtic he would go. If not he will continue to do his job and score goals.
A.R.THooper would not be allowed to speak with Adkins until Celtic accept a bid and give permission.How could he talk to Adkins without Celtic agreeing? If so that says a lot about how Southampton do business. You're a Championship team why would Hooper want to sign?So ur claiming adkins has tapped up hooper, thats illegal in the laws of the game buddySo do you think Celtic are good enough to be top of Championship??SPL Is a crap league.. Rangers and Celtic are the only Average/Good teams in it .. Isn't hard to win against St mirren and Aberdeen.. We'd easily beat those teams 3/4-0 Every time! It's clear to see how poor celtic and Rangers are when they get dicked like teams Called Malmo.. etc Hooper is never worth the price you celtic fans value his at..Because he wants to play Premiership football next season.why stay in the SPL, it's only Championship level anyway ?If this is true (which is definitely isn't), then southampton are in a bit of bother for tapping up a player.

just drop it will you, it aint gonna happen. hooper & celts far too big for southampton. end of!If Hooper wants to play in the Premiership he could join one of the Premiership teams who are interested in him rather than gamble on Southampton getting promoted. Won any games lately?

Southampton Transfer Rumour Update:


Gary Hooper (Celtic) > According to the Daily Echo Saints haven't given up hope of landing Hooper and could possibly break their Club record fee to land him this month. "Celtic have already rejected two bids from Saints for their star striker, the last reaching up to £4m." Hoops boss Neil Lennon has insisted he has intention of selling hooper and has slapped a £35m price tag on his head, but it is understood that a £6m offer would seriously test Celtic's resolve.

EdWhat a load of crap! neil lennon has publicly said HE IS NOT FOR SALE! the reason neil lennon put £35m price tag on him is beacuase hooper and andy carroll played in the championship at the same time and hooper scored more goals so he thinks if that dud carroll is worth £35m then hooper is worth atleast that. £6m wont even raise an eye brow. it would take about atleast £12m for the celtic board to get a twitchy finger

£12m!? So thats not £35m then is it! DOH!

Right okay, I'm confused, why are people taking the £35m quote so seriously, it's essentially just to 'scare off' potential suitors and make it exceptionally clear that he has no actual interest in selling him. So please give it a break with continually referring back to that quote. Either way, £6m wouldn't test Celtic's resolve at all, we are not in a position we need to sell, and because it's approaching late January and there would be little time to replace a player of his calibre - bids upwards of £10m would be the only way to have the board consider it in my opinion.

You need to calm down for one second. This is what was printed in the Daily Echo this morning. I know Lennon made the £35m quote as a scare off. I'm just posting what a newspaper put onto a RUMOUR website. (Ed)(3)(11)This is getting stupid, the £35mil wasnt a serious indication, it was a mere quip at current transfer prices and a scareoff, but for someone that costed £2mil, £6mil would indeed test the resolve, after all football is a business. Add in the fact that while you may be stable financially, if your so called european qualifying club wants to make it anywhere in europe you'll need better players, for that you'll need proper investment, not this tin pot contracts you have people on.The £35 million quote was a joke, but Celtic fans need to be realistic. Andy Carroll cost that due to a number of factors including the number of clubs being interested in him, the amount of time left in the window, being an international and most importantly having scored goals and played well in the Premier League. Hooper hasn't played international football and isn't proven in the Premier League therefore isnt worth anything like that. If SFC decide to bid £7-£8mill Celtic will accept IMO. In what other walk of life would you have an investment that quadrupled within 18 months, especially in this economic market.Do you know what these tin pot contracts players are on?, i dont have inside info, and you clearly seem to know....Andy carrol has played how many time for england? {Ed001's Note - 3.}Are you all thick in southampton or what?

hooper is worth more to celtic than 6 or 7m, simple reason being that his goals WILL assure us winning the league, and possible entry to champions league group stages where celtic stand to rake in around £15m.

so, as far as i, and more likely, celtic see it, Hooper won't be going anywhere unless a bid of £10m+ is made.

it really is that simple....unfortunately, so are you saints fansHaha.. Completely agree. Simple arrogant saints fans who dont deserve such a good manager and will never sign Hooper! Keep dreaming boysHaha... What a difference a few years can make. Saints are now arrogant, bullies and glory-seekers! Love it!

Southampton latest
Hooper deal could be done in time for Monday's game. It seems Saints are very close to meeting Celtics demands, and Hooper is apparently excited about a move to Southampton after hearing about the clubs plans from former Celtic man Jos Hooiveld.(15)(21)This is a load of rubbish I'm a green and White hoop fan through and through and he has come out and said 4 times that he is staying with us and wants to score more goals and win more games with Celtic not silly SouthamptonNo chance hoops will leave celtic to go to southampton enjoying his time at celtic treble is on the way.Dont believe this for one min garys about to sign a new deal at celtic taking him up to 22,000 a week has no intrest in leaving celticAny proof of this?Give it a rest! He aint coming.Gary Hooper to join southhampton, because Southhampton fans say so...right!"former Celtic man" Jos Hooiveld was chased from Celtic after a handful of games proving he wasn't good enough, now he's a star for Saints. Work that one out in relation to your chances of landing Hooper!!You got Hooiveld because he was a dud and couldn't get a game in our team in this supposedly crap league. He goes to Southampton and is a great player !!

So your superior league may infact be not as good as you think and secondly if you think you're getting Hooper you are dreaming mate. Now go and have a lie down in a dark room, put a cloth over the brow of your head and sleep off the effects of the glue

GaryThe proof is that he had dinner with hooiveld and then placed the fact on twitter get over it Celtic fans he is goingSouthampton fans are a joke and so is there silly team Leicester fanSays a Leicester fan!

according to talksport qpr will make a 2 million move to land sunderlands kenwyne jones. nottingham forrest might be making a 750,000

also liverpool are going to make a 3 million pound
move for fiorentinas khouma babacar, as carrol
has not been a success.(5)(30)Kenwyne jones dosnt play for sunderlandKenwyne Jones is at Stoke, if you're going to make up rumours at least get the details correct.Talksport are bit behind the times he has played for stoke for 2 yearsWhat are you talking about. Kenwyne Jones plays for Stoke. So clearly rumour is wrongYou mean stokes kenwin jonesDoesn't Jones play for Stoke???Kenwyne Jones ain't at Sunderland any more mate! Been at Stoke for almost 2 years...A player stoke payed 8m for lol and have already had a offer of 5m and iv not seen that on talksport and cant find it anywere elseAnd he plays for stoke u mug not sunderland lolYeh bentner will definitely be leaving! not sure that he wiill be going to borussia dortmund but he might join psg or bayern munich etc.Kenwyne jones plays for stokeI bet sunderland would love 2million from qpr fro kenwyne jones considering he plays for stoke!!!! get your facts right muppet!!Um talksport you say? doubt they would make the mistake of saying kenwyne jones plays for sunderland - I think you wil find he has been at stoke for 18months since then! nice try - no cigar!Jones plays for stokeKenwynne Jones is a Stoke player?Kenwyne Jones of Sunderland !! Is that the same Kenwyne Jones who moved from Sunderland to Stoke, 2 seasons ago, for £8m ? What a load of nonsense. Jones could leave the Potters, but not for a fee less than c.£6m minimum and almost certainly only if Stoke replace him with a striker with a decent goal-scoring record.Cotterill has just come out saying he has NO money to spend at Forest (on BBC website). So the move for BWP isn't happening.Yh right mate, think youll find kenwyn jones plays for SToke for one, 2 he wont be going nowhere for u der 8 millionAlright i think we know he made a mistake calm down!Kenwyne Jones plays for Stoke mate!

West brom have bid £2.5mill for liam Ridgewell. birmingham look set to take the offer as ridgwell not happy playing championship football

he might be back in championship next year if he goes to WBA.(14)(8)This bid was rejected.Probably not, WBA will no doubt stay upWBA will be safe, they have had most of their first team out due to injuries, and they have a good coach in Roy hodgson, once the majority of the players are back and with 1 or 2 decent additions they will be fine so it would be a good choice for ridgewell, wont have to re-locate and will have better chance of prem football than he would if he stayed at the scum!You aint got 2.5 million

Brighton have expressed an interest in Norwich City's Andrew Crofts. The ex-Brighton skipper is keen on making a return the Albion after Leeds accept an improved offer for Jonny Howson.(4)(11)Crofts is heading to IpswichCan't see it happening, Lambert has a good squad and they all get the opportunity to play, Crofts is very much a part of that squad. Maybe at season end Lambert may allow one or two to leave assuming he has replacements to come in.Never in a million years.Guys, Crofts isn't going anywhere in this window, unless someone offer stupid money, and only if Lambert gets another replacement in, and I don't mean Howson, he is being added to squad, not a replacement.Neeeever going to happen in this window! howson is still injured for a start! optimistic brighton fan clearly.

why would beano want to go to swindon with all the strikers you have he wont be guarenteed a starting place but at oxford he starts can't work that one out(5)(6)Wait until tomorrow as the deal is being worked on and expect him to sign late this week. The offer has increased.


18 Jan 2012 14:53:38
But it appears a bid has been tabled, so there is a chance. I think he is a quality player, and would love him at saints, however Udders must value him more than 4m and need him if they are to get promoted, (which I hope they are, especially after last season).(1)(4)Not heard anything of this offer been tabled, hudds just wont sell in jan, dunt make sense and four mil just not enuff think will leave sadly in summer but with the backing of all hudds fans when he gets us promoted to championship!

Southend United have agreed personal terms with West Brom's Luke Daniels. The clubs are yet to agree a fee.

The blues are also currently talking to an ex-premier league full back with the aim of tightening up their defence.

Also 2 senior Southend United players have given their committment to the club this transfer window, on the condition that they are free to leave if the club does not get promotion this season.(2)(8)Daniels isnt returning.

Reason = Glen Morris.One of the ex EPL players is Christian Dailly. He is well known to Sturrock from their time together at Dundee United, and spent some time training with the club this season. He is currently carrying a small injury so expect this to be done not immediately, but once he is fit again in a few weeks.The Daniels thing is Rubbish. Personal terms are never discussed before the two Clubs agree a fee.

West bromwich albion to make 2 more signings during the window, liam ridgewell will be the first as roy believes competition for left back spot is key and is losing faith in shorey.

next they will attemp to sign christain rodriguez from porto, wba want initial loan with view to permanent. his wages could cause some problem.

possible outs include,

cox (although roy doesn't want to sell so unlikely)

mattock loan if ridgwell comes in

bednar if anyone will take him (looking unlikely)

fortune loan,

thorne youth loan depending on other comings ang goings.

Tamas(15)(7)Christain rodriguez haha porto turned down a 20m bid from real Madrid.

18 Jan 2012 13:39:06
Okay, so we are now well into the second half of this month's January Transfer window and Jack Sullivan, David Sullivans son, confirmed that two bids have gone in for two strikers. One bid of £5m and the other £3.5m. Adzman alerted to this and confirmed that the players in question were Rhodes (£5m) and Sordell (£3.5m). Both players I think would do an excellent job in ensuring a top two status this year. Celik's agent is currently in the process of dealing with his move to a club this window, though as a free agent, it isn't something that has to be rushed. We still remain interested in Reading wide man Kebe who is keen to join us but the club won't sanction a move whatsoever, which I'm also led to believe will be the same with Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes. Reports suggesting Huddersfield want near the £8m mark is ridiculous for a player who has only proven his trade in League One. Yes I think he would be a great signing but there are other options out there I think that are just as good who will come cheaper. These players (perhaps being Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard, Watford's Sordell and Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez) each know where the goal is and have proved themselves at this level. Others will argue that Baldock managed the step up for us so why won't Rhodes? It is a very fair point but Baldock is a success story. Would Rhodes be the same? £5m for a league one player is a lot of money but I still don't see Huddersfield negotiating…The only way we could perhaps tempt Huddersfield would be a £5m offer + Piq and Sears which I personally think is a great offer though difficult to get each to agree terms.

The Guardian has us interested in Yakubu. How many times have we been linked with him? To put it simply…not going to happen IMO!(5)(13)Im a West Ham Fan and i belive that rhodes is worth 8 million at the end of the day dont forget walcott chamberlain were league 2 players and look how much was paid for them. Also my uncle is very good friends with steve potts and rumour has it West Ham have enquired about jason robertsWe better not get Roberts. We dont need any more old 'has been's' at the club.

Rhodes isn't worth £8million. Are people forgetting he plays in league 1?? Does anyone have any idea how much easier it is to poach goals in that league compared with the championship? Let alone the Prem! I cant see Samba, Terry, Vidic, King etc marking him as weakly as the league 1 clubs do. The lad is clearly a talent, but even at £5mill its a gamble. £8million is ridiculous! We only paid £7million for Ba for christ sake!Rhodes is not worth £8million the £3million originally bid is a lot for a league 1 striker. If Huddersfield realistically think they will get £8million for him then their owner needs his head examined.


18 Jan 2012 13:28:01
I have it on very good authority that
WBA are interested in loaning Owen Hargreaves from
Man City for the rest of the season ...Roy Hodgeson
is a big fan and WBA are in need of some quality in rhe midfield area(11)(18)Will not happen.


18 Jan 2012 13:26:49
West Ham are poised to make a move for Swedish winger Mervan Celik.

Sam Allardyce is desperate to strengthen his squad after being hit by an injury crisis at a crucial stage of the season.

David Bentley has been ruled out for six months while Henri Lansbury will also be missing until Christmas.

With Matt Taylor also being sidelined with a calf injury, Allardyce has been short of players in the wide areas and is hoping Celik could be a welcome addition to the squad.

Celik, 21, plays for GAIS in the Swedish League and has scored an impressive 14 goals in 27 games this season.

The Swedish Under-21 international, whose contract runs out in December, has also been linked with Fulham (who lets face it are after anybody), Rangers and Middlesbrough, but the east London club appear to be the strong favourites to clinch his signature.(5)(12)We may be interested in the guy - but keep up trigger, your post states that Lansbury is out until December so it just goes to show that you have cut and pasted a very very old article........Henri Lansbury out till Xmas? Not Mr current affairs are you?We all knew that about Bentley months agoOet's face it if Fulham or Rangers are really interested, you have no chanceCellik is on his way to rangersLet's face it if West Ham were really interested they could compete with Fulham financially ad blow Rangers out of the water moneywise. Rangers highest paid player Steven Davis wouldn't be in the top 10 paid at UP.

Anyone know if we are going back in for doyle at barnsley he would be a real good signing good enough for champioship dont see why barnsley are prepared to sell(1)(6)Agree would be a great signingHe cant get in to first team at Barnsley he,s not even making it on to the subs bench.

Cahill to Stoke will happen late in the window
Pulis has told Fuller he can go but no one so far willing to match his terms. Bolton and Everton keen
Marshall looking closer to a new contract and a loan to Leicester a possibility
Tonge wanted by 4 Champ clubs and Sheff Utd
The Uchebo rumours some have posted aren't accurate. Stoke never applied for a work permit as they passed on the player.
Stoke will sign a new striker IF one leaves(13)(12)What cahill ??Gary Cahill ? - hello ! - he just signed terms with Chelsea 2 days ago ?Tim Cahill!Tim, u muppet. Where have u been living lately.You person he means Tim CahillThink you will find its tim , this has been banded about for monthsWell why didn't you say so Muppet yourself....Pulis to sign a 5ft 7" forward in Tim Cahill, this is a bit outside his reference point, usually he goes for 6FT+ and large elbows, judging by Huth, Shawcross,etc, hang on though Tim Cahill can leap higher than most 6ft players so maybe it isn't such a stretch and he's pretty good with his elbows as well.

Warnock to Leeds to replace Grayson, are u mad !, If Grayson had better support from his chairman Mr Bates, they would have followed Norwich up to premier league. A Quality manager who is attempting the impossible trying to get Leeds promoted with no money to spend, and relying on loan players, the fact he has come so close reiterates just how good a manager he is.

Fernando Torres has just a few weeks to earn himself a stay in the Premiership, Didier Drogba is away at the A.C.N. and until he gets back Torres will likely start every game however if Torres can't prove himself then the Drog will get back into the team and despite him leaving this Summer AVB will let Torres leave if someone can come up with £25m. AVB wants to sign Edison Cavani as Torres replacement and he see's Romelu Lukaku as Drogba's long term replacement. Former Chelsea manager and newly appointed PSG manager Ancelotti claims that Chelsea want to get rid of Torres and buy Cavani this January. Carlo claims that Torres was offered to PSG for £32m while Cavani is available for £40m.(5)(19)

Well looks like Leeds are going to be a feeder club for Norwich City now. First Johnson and now Howson, who will they take next?(23)(8)Snodgrass is going there before the end of the window. They are going to leave it late to make a bid though.Snoddy is are now a small club with small mined ownerCould be worse, bask in Norwich's reflected glory?..better than anything else you gonna get for a while.........How the mighty are fallen a feeder
club to us little old norwich never
mind old uncle ken will spend it on
things to enhance his life or he could knock 5p off pie /drinkSnodgrassWell you can keep Grayson but we would quite like Snodgrass.Snodgrass ken is SKINTIts a no brainer,howson wants to play premier league football-he isnt going to get that playing for leeds unless they sign paul mckenna(the magician not the footballer)Bad enough being Norwich can't imagine being their feeder club!!Snodgrass would be nice....Folks Howson has still to agree terms with Norwich and pass his medical, currently has a knee injury so until he's signed lets cool it.
Yes Snodgrass could well be coming as well, assuming Leeds will agree a sensible fee for him.Ken isn't skint, but Leeds are!Like rats from a sinking shipLeeds is a great club and will be back were they belong in the not to distant future. B4 u blame ken bates remember he didint almost bankrupt u. Even if howson turnd us down he will go else were. In 6months u would get nothing. Ken has done right thingNo. ken is skintThere speaks someone who hasn't a clue. Uncle Ken is making millions out of Leeds personally so the thanks for him saving us are long gone. One year in a higher league does not change a small rural club with little history of success a bigger club.Id rather be a leeds fan than a norwich fan any day even now !!!Yep, most definitely, after a team signs 2 players, they are their feeder club. Does that also mean spurs are Stoke's because they sold them Crouch and Palacios? Or Arsenal are Man City's because they sold them Nasri and Clichy? Don't think so. Silly little Leeds fans trying to make their club seem better than it currently is at present. (please don't reply with pathetic comebacks about your history, we don't live in the past)Can i just pour water on this thread cause as a norwich fan i actually really like Leeds as a club. the 4 games we had with you in last two season were all bloody epic and actually hope we get to repeat that next year in the prem. good luck to u

He may be your top goalscorer but thats not exactly hard to achieve. As far as I know an approach has been made

daviebhoy08Its a rumour site you tool. No-one has said we think we can sign him. Cant see us wanting him for that matter.You lot saying you do not want Chamaknh are so stupid. You clearly dont know anything about his ability and skill. He is a top class player, but failed to shine at Arsenal. He would be your best player by a long way.^^^ ha ha delusion!

Hi Ed, Other than the likely signing of Jack Grimmer, and the interest in Odemwingie what other targets are Fulham looking at, and what about on the way out, whats the situation on Zamora, Johnson and Dembele?
Cheers mate. {Ed001's Note - the only player I have heard of interest in is a defender from Middlesbrough, Williams, an Aussie lad. Also Briggs is wanted by a few teams, but Fulham's asking price is putting people off, just like with the 3 you have named.}(3)(5)

chris samba holding talks with norwich(11)(33)Even as a Norwich fan this is about as likely as signing Messi. He will got to SpursEr no he isn'tOh how I chuckledNot at the moment he isn't SSN are live at BBURN training ground and samba is thereRubbish.. Spurs or PSG..Samba is only being taughted around due to his agent telling him "you need to be on more money and i can get it for you elsewhere", clearly taking on a new agent in the past year or two hasnt worked out as planned for the commanding centre back. On another note, had heard (albeit from a secretary to one of the staff at the club) that there is a French striker being monitored very closely, with the club preferring to make a move in the summer so long as this striker doesnt look like signing for anyone else in the Jan window. To be fair to her she didnt get a name, just that it was a French lad and she needed to arrange transport. i'll check to find out the airport to see if that may help. Not out of the question for it to be someone like Remy...i hope.Love him to come here but its a pipe dreamFunny how hes live on sky sport news at blackburns training groundHighly unlikely Norwich could afford the wages he would expect, however if he is in talks with Norwich, it will be his agent and not the player at this stage...Norwich fans, please stop embarassing usAs much as i would like it to be true,i will not be holding my breath on that one i'm afraid.OTBCSamba would be a top class signing for most teams in the prem. But from a Norwich fan, to another Norwich fan, please, please stop making up stupid, extremely unrealistic rumours like this.The French Striker is Modeste from Bordeux

norwich boss paul lambert to go all out for chris samba fact(5)(28)Fact! My arse. You Canaries have ideas well above your station.Anyone who puts fact after thier comments are sure to be talking cr@p! Think they are trying to convince themselves more than anythingThis is an ipswich fan clearly. we're not that deluded jeesFrom a Norwich fan to a supposedly "fellow Norwich fan", sort it out, Samba would probably come to us considering where we are in the table and where Blackburn are, but Lambert would never pay the wages/fee for him. FACT

Nikica Jelavic is staying at Rangers, he has stated he would rather play and have a chance of winning titles than play with a run of the mill premiership side, although liverpool are weighing up a £9million bid which may be accepted in the summer.

Rangers will sign jaager and claros (the 2 trialists we have just now), broadfoot is apparently going to leeds on loan til the end of the season, we are also looking at a 26 year old argentinian winger and a the striker uchebo from vvv venlo.

there is also talk of rangers signing 2 players on loan from the EPL, and john fleck will finally move to blackpool on loan before the end of the week.(9)(19)Where is the money for all of this coming from if no one gets sold. Depressing times for Rangers but time to get realThe most delusional post ive read today . RFC have no money , i repeat , NO MONEY . As Jelavic's contract runs down he is worth less to the club . You'll be lucky to see 5m (lessVAT) for him . Hard times ahead for ally

jimi88Winning what? a tital thats only a 2horse race lol what planet u on a bottom 3 prem club would win the scotish tital every year ..rangers and celtic wouldnt even get out of the championship to earn the right play in the prem there teams are full of prem rejectsJelavic has 2 and half years left dumb or what!Correct me if im worng but the bottom 3 sides in the EPL are QPR,BOLTON and WIGAN .... you put those sides in the spl with the budget the spl teams recieve each year those would struggle, those teams have a significant budget playing in the EPL with the attraction of playing in that league, they have nowhere near the the fan base the stadium or the history like the old firm do, the oldfirm do not attract players of high quality cos they play in the SPL FACT! you put them in the EPL(which will never happen) with the financial budget of a typical prem team and the attraction of the league then they would easily challenge for Europe every year. as for being a 2 horse race you are correct apart from Blackburn in 95 to my knowledge there has only been 3 teams that have won the EPL in 16 years and had chelsea not had Abramovich Billions there is an arguement they may not have had there success!

After the Gillingham game my source was informed that Stoke have enquired about 2 players from Everton, (one will probably go to the Euros this summer) and both deals 'could happen'. A deal involving Fuller and Pennant (I'm not happy about the latter being involved FWIW) I'm not saying it will happen, but I have been told that Stoke have enquired and neither player is yet to turn down the offers and are set to have talks, Not sure if a deal could happen during this transfer window. As people are aware Everton are financial not in a good position, Moyes doesn't want to sell, however the board do. Stoke will not be signing Holiett, my source claims that Pulis and Holiett's representatives barely got talking, he wants too much money, poor attitude not the right 'DNA' that Pulis looks for. Expect a bid to go in for a Wigan player (Diame) very soon. Forget players like Zaha, Defoe (too short) and others that are linked in the press, Stoke and Pulis always do their business through the clubs, not the media. There will be definitely be a surprise or two for Stoke fans come the end of the window.(10)(4)Right "DNA" you mean he can't jump 25 feet in the air and actually has skill and can footballCan football? ...shouldn't really blame you, must be hard trying to type with 6 fingers on each hand. (banjo plays ala deliverance)Stoke dont need to sign any1..there safe in the prem and dontr need to invest untill the start of the next transfer window..spend 20m on players this transfer window and push on for a europa spot? ir save it to invest next season to strengthen the squad and secure prem football again ..The surprise or two will be keeping the ball on the floor for 5 minutes.

real madrid want van persie and
alex song, reported 55 million(17)(16)Song is not at all good enough for Real Madrid.
RVP yes for around £35m but that is far as it goes.Haven't they got enough midfielders already? I can think of about tenSong isnt worth that muchWould be more believeable if spain is on the bones of its arse as is its banks. This has knocked on to the football teams who are struggling to raise funds except the clubs with sugar daddys(Malaga). This includes Real and Barca who rely on the banks for transfers.

Southampton Transfer Rumour Update:


Gary Hooper (Celtic) > According to the Daily Echo Saints haven't given up hope of landing Hooper and could possibly break their Club record fee to land him this month. "Celtic have already rejected two bids from Saints for their star striker, the last reaching up to £4m." Hoops boss Neil Lennon has insisted he has intention of selling hooper and has slapped a £35m price tag on his head, but it is understood that a £6m offer would seriously test Celtic's resolve.

Ed(13)(16)What a load of crap! neil lennon has publicly said HE IS NOT FOR SALE! the reason neil lennon put £35m price tag on him is beacuase hooper and andy carroll played in the championship at the same time and hooper scored more goals so he thinks if that dud carroll is worth £35m then hooper is worth atleast that. £6m wont even raise an eye brow. it would take about atleast £12m for the celtic board to get a twitchy finger£12m!? So thats not £35m then is it! DOH!Right okay, I'm confused, why are people taking the £35m quote so seriously, it's essentially just to 'scare off' potential suitors and make it exceptionally clear that he has no actual interest in selling him. So please give it a break with continually referring back to that quote. Either way, £6m wouldn't test Celtic's resolve at all, we are not in a position we need to sell, and because it's approaching late January and there would be little time to replace a player of his calibre - bids upwards of £10m would be the only way to have the board consider it in my opinion.Hooper is not even worth 35 pence ;)


18 Jan 2012 09:39:40

jordan rhodes off to celtic for 7.5 million, deal confirmed today, mr rhodes seen at cletic's training ground yesterday.(5)(34)Jordan Rhodes will not be going near Parkhead, or Ibrox for that matter, and where will anyone in Scottish football get £7.5million, whatever your taking.... i would love someWhy would he step down in class of football and more importanly where have Celtic got 7.5m from ? you are highly amusing Sir!Well looks like gary brick face is off thenStrange that, I saw him training in Huddersfield yesterday!Celtic havn't got 7.5 million to spend they need to sell Hooper 1st£7.5m for a League One striker? He'll move for a decent fee, but it won't be as high as that and it won't be to a Micky Mouse league either.You aint got 7.5 millionHow do any of the above posters know the finances at celtic or if they will spend, im a shareholder and get to see the finance reports for the previous year, and they are sitting pretty comfortable, so if £7.5m was the price then they could afford it no problems! willybhoy

Hooper to Southampton seems more and more likely. Rumours coming out of Celtic Park suggest that Saints are close to offering an acceptable sum for Hooper's services. The recent commitment of club to player and player to club is a PR stunt designed to appease Celtic fans and make Southampton pay more. Hooper is doing what his current paymasters have asked of him and helping Celtic get the highest fee possible.(14)(11)This deal is being made more likely by Celtics refusal to offer Hooper a new contract that would bring him in line with the top earners at the club.Oi numb nts we don't need to sell. :)Whats going on here with this Southampton, do they not get the message, he is happy at celtic and not wanting to leave.Hooper is too small time even for championship


18 Jan 2012 08:38:54

Crystal Palace, Brentford & Leyton Orient are all interested in bringing in Oldham Athletic's Djeny Bembo-Leta. The highly rated youngster is believed to be valued at around £200,000 by the Latics.

And where have Orient got that money from? Get your facts right.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The sale of Charlie Daniels to Bournmouth

And we're going to spend it all on an unproven young player who has never scored a league goal?(3)(4)He is very highly rated though thats true, ive seen him a few times for oldham first team and reserves and he looks class. would definitely score goals for orient. wait until he gets a good run of games up at oldham, 200,000 will be a bargainHe's not played this season, never £200,000

Read on Sky Sports News this morning that we have agreed to sell Howson to Norwich for 2m. WHAT A LOSS!(17)(2)He won't go, Leeds through and through! If he does then he will be missedAs a Norwich fan I am delighted by this move but shocked all the same, Leeds becoming a Norwich Feeder club!Just seen on ssn Leeds accepted a bid from NorwichHe didnt want to sign a new contract let him go & cash in rather than let him go at the end of the season for freeWhilst its deal not done what option do Leeds have, he was running his contract down for the last 12 months and would not sign with only 6 months left! There is no loyalty in football. I am sure Bates and Grayson will get slaughtered for this. I am gutted, I look at this site each transfer window in hope a good player will join but sadly we are signing guys from TNS or free's and our best players are picked off from PL teams. I hope we dont loose any more before the end of the window. Another sad day for Leeds but I knowe it was the only option for the club. MOTI now feel Leeds have got to make a statement and spend money, Norwich are doing very well but in my eyes will always be a small club. Leeds will e back sooner rather thn later!

what a signing papis cisse is for newcastle though im not sure how ben arfa will fit in the team now unless pardew is maybe thinking going 4 3 3 anyhow i beleive cisse will be followed by ally cisokho which my local paper has confirmed also newcastle will offer nile ranger in a straight swap for james tomkins(13)(20)I doubt you know anything about him but because he is costing 10mill you think wow,Nile Ranger for Tomkins - get real!Unfortunately for Toon he will be to replace Ba who seems to be PSG bound. £10m bit more of a gamble than Ba on a free but time will tellBen Arfa will be a winger, him and Jonas will float around like they did on sunday

You do realise Nile Rangers injured and will be lucky to get back before the end of the season.. so a highly doubt West Ham would take him off us.. a would offer £3million plus give them Gosling+Tavernier on loan, with them 3 they would also really help West Hams promotion chances even though they doing well atm..Well BA will be here till the end of the season at least so well see how they play for half the season, think we'll tire of buying just to sell on.What a signing hes a big daft lazy forward that will anoye all newcastle fansLast comment has to be a makem the best thing about it he flew over to Newcastle airport on Ellis shorts private jet obviously wanted a bigger club with better fans not a little club with poor gatesThere's some lazy replies to this. Anyone who bothered to look into Cisse's stats would see he's a great signing. His goals to games ratio is fantastic and while he's not tried and tested in the premiership I reckon Newcastle have once again got a great signing.

Norwich City agree fee with Leeds for Howson
(source - the Sun)(20)(10)The same jonny howson that has a knee injury and is out till at least march?? good luck gettin him to pass a medical ! lolI heard he was signing a new deal this month, having already agreed terms. To be fair though, this is more believable than Snodgrass, even though Howson is injured and so would fail any medical. After all, his contract is up at the end of the season, and Leeds have a habit of selling rather than renewing contracts. Its a habit that they must quash if they are to make any headway, because the team just can't settle; it is always being chopped and changed.

I can't see why Norwich would want Howson though. He doesn't really fit the bill; Norwich have plenty of adequate cover in that position, for instance, Bradley Judas Johnson.

Plus, your source sucks.
wallyJust personal terms to be agreed as he out of contract end of season and wants top flight football ASAPWell in this case the source is spot on. haTo the person talkjng about his inability to pass a medical, i dont think you fully understand what a medical is for. They are undertaken to see their long term potential for injuries, underlying problems they might not be aware of, the serious of a current injury will be assesed and if seen as something temporary that will clear up it is not a problem. Lambert signed Pilkington who, at the time, had a broken leg/ankle and was not fit for another 2-3 months. He has since stepped up into the prem effortlessly!


18 Jan 2012 01:05:06
hi ed, can you clear any of the jordan rhodes rumours up, been hearing loads but IMO hes going nowhere. {Ed001's Note - I very much doubt he will anywhere until the summer.}(11)(7)Thankyou, hopefully other fans can take the hint :)

Last Southampton bid in region of 8 million pounds will be made 10am tomorrow . last bid was discussed at the board and 60 percent voted in favour of not accepting.
This bid will come with covering letter to say will be their last.
Hooper was misquoted in his Celtic statement yesterday and actually just said he was ' HAPPY SCORING GOALS AT CELTIC ' ... not that he doesn't want to move to Southampton...truth of the matter is he does and is homesick.
A.R.T(16)(32)Who in the name of all that is holy would be homesick for a place as disgusting as Southampton?
wally {Ed001's Note - I always thought he was a Londoner anyway, so why would he be homesick for Southampton??}Hes an Essex boy and it's getting boring now he's not going to that wee team he said he loves being at celticHang on a minute, in your last exclusive you claimed to be a friend of Hoopers family, but you also have an insider in the Celtic boardroom?

Instead of posting your hot off the press news here you should be working for a newspaper. I think the Daily Record could probably use someone with your incredible capacity for fabrication.

Get a life A.R.TCome on guys your cleverer than that .... he's father doesnt like flying and regularly endures 10 hour drives to see his son... even flying with journey to and from airports is 3 -4 hours...... southampton to essex at the right time on the roads is less than 2 hours away.... alot more bearable for his the thought of bigger wages and 80 percent chance of proving yourself in the premier league come august is a major factor aswell in his decision ...If Celtic accept tomorrow's bid of 8 million then he goes.
A.R.TSo long as the rhodes rumour to you dies from this idk if its true, hope you go up but you aint getting rhodes en routeIf Saints are bidding 8M then he will leave Celtic need the moneyEd, you say he cannot be homesick and comes from London, which is 70 miles (60 mins) from Southampton, whereas Glasgow is 400 miles and 6 hours, so it does make sense. {Ed001's Note - no it doesn't. Yes it's closer, but it would still not cure homesickness, ask Navas. As I was discussing with Ed007 earlier, it is a nice convenient excuse to go if Celtic accept an offer. I have no doubt that he will go if they do, my only doubt is whether Southampton will offer enough to convince Celtic to sell now, with the league title up for grabs. Hooper is very close to Adkins and asks his advice on footballing matters, such as contract discussions, which were conveniently put on hold until the end of the season.......}Ed ... contract negotiations were put off by Celtic NOT Gary Hooper or his agent ..Celtic know Gary is aware he is not one of the top 5 earners in the squad... not the right thing to do to keep someone your manager describes as 'priceless' is it.
When Gary goes cannot blame the player as he is only looking after his future...Celtic have treated Hooper terribly.
A.R.T {Ed001's Note - if you say so, but it was the player's choice to wait until the end of the season, he has even said as much.}I've said before to you (f)A.R.T, i'd like to know who your sources are, because you keep coming up with the biggest pile of st about this!

i have actually spoken to a very real contact at celtic park this evening, who told me a take it or leave it bid of 7.2m was rejected, along with a 'don't come back unless its silly money'

just stop with this fantasy.....yeah, you clearly love hooper, but he's not that way inclined;)Southampton with nother insulting bid, 8 mill is a joke. what part of NOT FOR SALE do Southampton not understand
They are a st team, Hooper will not go to Southampton, period. Delusional Southampton Supporters with their pissI am a Saints fan and i hope we do not make an 8 million bid, that is crazy money, he is playing well in a league that 2nd and 3rd are seperated by 19 points, not being funny any average striker would score lots of goals in the spl. If and a big IF, if we are looking to spend that sort of money on one player and i very much doubt it, we should look at an already proven goal scorer at championship level ie.. jay rodriguez, billy sharp, Nicky Maynard even jordan rhodes with sort of money. This is my opinion only.A.R.T you are warped my friend. You clearly have too much time on your hands and indulge yourself in the wonderful world of fantasy.

PS exactly what do you mean by Celtic have treated Hooper terribly ! You plank what do you know about Hoopers treatment by the club, the fortunes he is paid, the European football he has had and how he is cheered by 60'000 fans every 2nd week. Sounds shocking to me !!Wth? So because the CLUB are bidding, it makes the fans delusional? The fans have nothing to do with the transfer runnings of a club idiot. And you celtic fans need to realise your in a tinpot league that means sweet fa. Scottish football is terrible, internationally your bad, and Hooper will never get looked at for england whilst playing in your mickey mouse league. So get off your high horse and realise that moving to the championship is actually better than the SPL. And 8million is far from insulting, if anything its WAY OVERPRICED.Also, all you people saying you have friends in Celtic park, well you clearly dont.'disgusting as Southampton' - have you ever been to the New Forest, you wallyHe's home sick.......... Well why wud he go 2 Southampton then. Not even from there!!10m and hes yours, then well take jordan rhodes from the other tin pot league and make millions from him to, keep them coming engerland were living within our means and making money!
