Word coming out of Leicester City is that Nigel Pearson and Milan Mandaric have had a huge argument over transfer policy, therefore Nigel is set to walk out of Leicester City FC.


Everton to sign Rafael Van Der Vaart and David Bentley in January on loan with a view to a permanent deal, this is providing that both players receive a lack of first team football at their respective clubs.


Chris Coleman has 2 matches to save his job

Ranson unhappy at lack of progree being made


To he person who said



i have bin watching sky sports news for the last 2 hhours and i still don't see this coming on the screen.

any way sobis coming in on free on saturday .

any other rumours fellow reds

Dave Gizzy In the No


There were a few rumours among sunderland message boreds and fans that there was a player who failed a drugs test, moments before he was about to sign a big move to the stadium of light.

only info i got was that he wasnt english and had also been linked with other scottish, premier and top championship clubs.


Failed drugs test at sunderland, not a sunderland player.





Rafa benitez to quit to nite 7 o clock
lfc in the know


Matthew upson has been seen at spurs training ground. Make of that what you will.


Fulham bought David Elm from Kalmar FF (Sweden)


Trouble at the City Ground.

Forest boss Billy Davies is on the verge of walking out due to the board's failure to sign a central defender and left–back in the past 3 months.

Ned Kelly would be interim boss if BD walks.



Ermm, yeah, seems I mispelled Ivan Klasnic's name on my last post, but he has joined Bolton on a season long loan from French Ligue 1 outfit FC Nantes. Former Werder Bremen forward, good international record with Croatia, so I'm looking forward to seeing him in action. It is surely too late for Jermaine Beckford to transfer and looks set to stay with Leeds throughout the current season, which would mean the striker would be able to sign on a free transfer. Megson's style. But until then, Bolton are to scrutinize similar attacking pedigree, with Diomansy Kamara on the shortlist. Apparently, he has been tracked over the summer by Roma, Bordeaux and St Etienne. Do they know something we don't?


David Healy close to signing for Notts County on a free transfer from sunderland and a 2 year contract

deal announced later tonight


Yeah I heard Nicky Butt was in glasgow too. heard healys at murray park aswell, possible loan apparently


I heard sven goran eriksson is trying to bring nicky butt to notts county. sven is also trying to sign marlon harewood.


James McFadden would be a good signing for the gers but heard strong rumours that Nicky Butt was in glasgow, not hearing much about it on SKY or any other channels. been hearing it on the street though!


Aberdeen have turned down a £1 million bid from Rangers for Fraser Fyvie
Dundee United accepted a bid for £250,000 from Ipswich for Morgaro Gomis,but it fell through and Ipswich turned their attention to Sunderland`s Carlos Edwards


What an eventful day! This one has just been confirmed to me from a staff member at Cardiff – apparently the club expected bids for Joe Ledley from Stoke and Wolves.

However no bids were received, but now Ledley is refusing to sign a new contract with Cardiff!

It seems now that Joe really will, as his agent suggested, "run down his contract" before leaving on a free. :–(

This ones fact from the same reputable source who knew that Chopra was coming back 24 hours before it was officially announced.


Any person here herd about james mcfadden in glasgow for talks with rangers theres a few rumours that hes at murray park just now !!!


Middlesbrough have made a bid of £3m for derby striker Rob Hulse. also alan hutton might be going to sunderland with anton ferdinand coming the other way to spurs. also david bentley will not be moving to liverpool.


Apparently bentley has agreed one year loan liverpool according to a inside source. Am not sure just read in on another site


It looks like sulley muntari could be on his way to spurs as harry redknapp wants more power in his midfield. also niko kranjcar has passed a medical at white hart lane.


If your dad doesn't kno anything about football how does he know he saw david james? coulda been craig david or somethin :)
oh yeah and silva is supposedly to be seen at OT reported on bbc and sky but doubt it like fergie said on PL site today there is no more signings, could just be throwin off the fatcats at eastlands country club!!


I have just had an email from my mate who works for a bank in the UK (I live in Spain). He says the word within the bank is David Silva is joining the Scumbags!!(Utd)


breaking news
baptista"the beast" to liverpool in swap deal involving dossena + 2million will be an attempted deal, only agreed at 12 so will be tried to be pushed through medical under way at mellwood for baptista after only just arriving but personal term also not agreed,as for dossena he has been it italy all ready due to international duty so his medical should be near completion if it has already been passed or failed?
if baptista fails a medical or agree terms with liverpool transfer maybe called of due to dept.
david ion


My Mates been outside Melwood all Day, car just whizzed by blacked out windows, couldnt quite see who it was, but the guy was about 5'9 and was ushered into the building under a coat.??


I have just been told that james mcfadden has just arrived at murray park for a medical that's james mcfadden.


Notts County have completed the loan signing of Matt Ritchie until the end of december, with a view of making it permenant.


My uncle is very close to liverpool fc and he's just called to inform me that BAPTISTA will not sign and SOBIS has just arrived at the john lennon airport to finalise a deal and pass his medical at liverpool fc. Anyone watching sky sports just ignore them because if you have not just realised that SKY SOURCES are not focusing on the 'big four' because they always break the news for the 'big four' in the final minutes


Aresnal to sign Frings, heard this today as i was changing the Air–con at the Staduim. . Graet news but could mean that Song goes the other way in the deal. . .

Come on you Gunners.


Sobis to sign but as he is unattached its not a priotity
Baptiste talks ongoing should be done
Voronin to leave to Wolfsberg


Bristol rovers are set to snap up youngsters Sam Goodman and Luke Barkley from Yeovil


My Brother has just saw david bentley entering mellwood training ground 2:15. time will tell he is a tottenham fan so can't be wrong dunno.


Richard Dunne to Villa is a done deal. Paper work and registration sent to the premier league, just waiting for confirmation from the premier league


On the laptop , on the inside at AVFC , TRUST ME , Richard Dunne , Amr Zaki and James Collins deals to be concluded soon


I work in the glasgow airport and i just saw

James McFadden with Martin Bain spoke to James and said its a done deal. .


Grant Leadbitter will sign for Cardiff and NOT Nicky Butt (Sven has persuaded Nicky Butt to join Notts. County).


My dad is a coach driver and doesn't no anything about football, but just rang me as he claims he has seen what looks like david james on the m6


Paul huntington will join darlington on a season long loan before the window shuts!


Derby fans, Clough recognises the lack of strike power and is in for Franny Jeffers on loan to put some punch in the attack. Erik the Red


Rangers are preparing a season long loan bid for jerome rothen which will im about 99% sure will be accepted. This will be with the option to buy.
They will also have a cheeky bid for scott arfield somwhere in the region of 700k–1m. If they manage to offload Demarcus Beasley. Mculloch should now stay as he has shown over last 3 games (2 goals) we can use his muscle in the middle of the park.

2 in a row
last 16


Notts Coiunty are close to signing Nicky Butt,Matt Rithie and Marlon Harewood


I notice that David Silva has been seen in Liverpool and Manchester airports today, he must be a plane spotter!!


My colleague Fraser has just seen Kris Boyd in Hull – even signed an autograph for him!


I really think Liverpool WILL sign a striker. I have been monitoring the LFC site on and off for a while. The first time i checked Voronin's name was not available on an away shirt but it was on home shirt. Now, checking at 14:20 1/9/09 his name is not available on home or away shirts!. I would like Villa to come in as the supprise (wishfull thinking) but i believe it could be Baptista.

Richie G


Darren Bent at Murray Park with Spaniard Michel from Sporting Gijon. Mate is the Security Guard on Gate.


Walking past the Newcastle United training in Benton and I belive I saw Gareth Bale and Brian Howard entering, however it looked like Bale looked like he was still quite far away from recovering from his injury!!


Just saw david silva in manchester airport think his going to manchester united.


Been confirmed by a client from LA that Beckham lawyers have been in constant contact with Liverpool regarding a move to Anfield. Is the number 7 going to be filled by him?


Bloke opposite me at works sister is dating Anton Ferdinand. Is down at the lodge(Tottenhams training ground) discussing a possible loan move while Senderos on his way to Sunderland as his replacment.


Dont rule out a deadline day deal for everton to take michael ball to goodison pk as cover for leighton baines. also a good source tells me that everton will go over stanley pk to secure the services of red starlet nathan eccleston on a 5yr deal


Just saw julio baptista and his agent walking through john lennon airport when i was collecting my brother and his girlfriend


Rangers to sign Rothen.

A cheeky bid for Scott Arfield will also be made.


With the news of the shannigans in Roma. Wenger going in for a last minute cheeky bid for De Rossi


I said that demanti was at the training ground at chadwell heath last week for west ham and he signed later that day

now. . . .

chamakh (ow ever u spell it ) is going through a medical while steve clarke and zola watch on

4.45 deal is made



Dean Windass is coming to Oxford United as Player/assistant coach while he gets his badges.


A very close friend works in the everton training ground told me that joau mountinho arriving any time soon!!!!!!


Rangers have are going to try and sign (sol bamba)
fee has been agreed and medical passed all now is terms and conditions of transfer .
rangers close to completing loan moves for jerome rothen and fedirico marcheda of manchester united and psg respectively.
thats all transfer business for rangers .
the deal for marcheda relies on demarcus beasley leaving for olympiakos or schalke 04.

the inside mole ( murray park )


Frank ribbery to the gunners. £60m

Arsene to smash current arsenal transfer record and spend all the profit from ade and toure sale !!! (plus his transfer budget)


I think by giving O'Dea the extention and sending him on loan is agreat move, it would appear that Caldwell will not be offered a new deal and will be free to talk to other clubs come Jan, this will result on O'Dea coming back for the run in and taking his place next season when he is gone. Still expect some late deals at celtic park, Janko in hopefully. Anyone know when the bank are going to shut down the rotten mob?????


To the celtic fan who claimed

Howard from the halifax advert would be better than Fortune, please explain? scored as many goals as boyd thus far,

Boyd 3
Fortune 2

The Fat Goal machine will not be defeated, Learn to count,

Jerome Rothen, Nicky Butt, and Stranzel. Transfer closing day signings. No chance for Tonel as he is cup tied, Not sure about Stranzel, never seen him however I would much rather a player on loan from the EPL to cover Weir and Boogey, preferably a young player from the top four.

Championship number two on its way As Celtic have just got rid of their only decent defender on loan, O'Dea to Reading. . Isn't that insane, and lets face it McManus isn't gonnae feature much. So again i stress you are stuck with Loovens and Captain Gary "Whoops i fouled him" Caldwell. Must say though Boruc has been impressive so far, no Fk ups at Hibs for the first time in two years.

Glasgow Rangers Champions oh oh oh oh oh oh ohhhhh


Newcastle will sign gareth bale and danny rose from spurs on loan.
they will also bid to sign james vaughan on loan till january 1st.
peter lovenkrands to sign on wednesday or thursday.
chris hughton will also atempt to sign craig cathcart on loan for 3 month

To the chap who posted about Joe Ledley going to Wolves – almost but not quite mate, got it on good authority he's going to Everton and they will send Anichebe to Cardiff on a 6–month loan deal.


Just heard that wolves are going to make a bid belived to be in the region of 5.5to6million
for cardiff winger joe ledley

the deal could also involve wolves players darran ward and sam vokes to go on a season long loan to the bluebirds

u heard it first from down under !!!!
David SydneyLFCfan


The cleverest man in football is our very on french master. he has now learnt over the years that whenever he expresses an intrest in a player all the clubs in europe snoop in eg when baptista was at sevilla,lorik cana ,kompany etc but as you can see these players tend not to do so well at the clubs they end up .
most of these players linked with arsenal are just a smoke screen to divert the other managers so that le boss can home in on his targets.
come 5pm today expect the following
CM = hitzlistberger
CD = steven tylor
CF = chamakh . (once a fee is agreed with west ham chamakh won't agree personal terms and will end up at the emirates for 1million less the agreed fee,,how does this benefit west ham? bentdner goes the other way on a 6 month loan.)
zola shares wengers vision of football totale thus so long as he stays at upton pk,future young gunners will go on loan there. .and as an added bonus gibbs also goes to the hammers on loan.

i hope you read this before 5pm so that you may all marvel at my undeniable logic and brilliance !!!!!!!!!!!! and i wish you all a smashing season no matter what team you support.,spuds excluded ,and the chavs i suppose,throw in both mancs to that least and phill browns clowns!!!

rob the goon

Palace to get John Stead on laon and to tie up the Claude Davis free transfer


Arsenals Jack Wilkshere to go to Glasgow Rangers for 1 season to get 1st team experience, before returning to Arsenal next season.


Man city will sign Miguel Veloso if yayo toure/robinho deal falls through.


Just seen jack wilshire walk into craven cottage. .fulham

Leeds to sign Bromby(250k), Heffernan(200k)and loan in a left winger
They are also trying to get rid of Kandol to Gillingham, Huntington to Oldham, and Sheenan to Crewe all on Free transfers


Chris Killen to Doncaster Rovers



Notts county look set to make a last ditch deadline day to sign matt ritchie and an audacious bid for man citys benjani.


Rangers to sign jerome rothen before tuesdays deadline


John Gough here with some rumours:

Notts County will sign Cardiff's misfit midfielders Darcy Blake and Riccardo Scimeca. They will have medicals in the evening at Meadow Lane and will be unveiled on Wednesday morning.

Kris Commons won't move to Notts. County, even on a loan, but I have heard that he is wanted by Barnsley and Blackpool and will probably choose The Seasiders as Barnsley are in a state of flux at the moment.

Onto Cardiff, yes Kevin Phillips will sign a short–term deal to cover for Bothroyd (until the end of December) but if McCormack moves in January he will sign a continuation to his contract and stay at Cardiff until the end of the season. Nicky Butt will also sign for Cardiff and Dave Jones will upset Peter Ridsdale by selling Steve McPhail to Leeds United. Dave Jones will be sacked and replaced by Steve Coppell.

Cardiff's investment will not be as big as most fans hope – although the shirt sponsorship with the Malaysian Tourist Board (ooops I let the cat out of the bag) will be quite tasty nontheless. Ridsdale will sell up (not to David Sullivan, but to one of at least six interested parties). Their South Wales neighbours, Swansea City, will also face a takeover come Spring 2010.


Expect Crystal Palace to nip in and beat Doncaster Rovers to the signing of ex–MFK Kosice striker Pavol Jurco. Who is a free agent.


I have just went to gatwick airport to pick up my brother who returned from spain.

and i have just seen Maruoane Chamack

is he goin to arsenal or west ham?????????????


Hearts are trying to sign Stuart Kemp from FC Zurich for a nominal fee as he has fallen out of favour.

They are also chasing ex–celt Bobo Balde!!!


Newcastle united will sign andy o'brien on a 3 year contract from bolton wanderers, stepan mcmanus on a 3 year contract from celtic and laurent robert on a season long loan. fabricio coloccini will & so will kevin nolan.


A busy day in store for the last day of the transfer window. David Bentley will move to Man City, Niko Kranjcar will join up with Harry again at Tottenham. Expect Arsenal to be busy on the last day, greek superstar Sotiris Ninis is being lined up. Portsmouth, Burnley and Fulham will do buisness too. In the Championship – Newcastle look set to swoop for 2 loan signings in Darren Gibson of Man Utd and Danny Rose of Tottenham, I also understand Liverpool frenchman Damien Plessis has been on tyneside to discuss a possible move. The signing of Peter Lovenkrands will come at a later date as he is a free agent. Middlesbro are in the market for another striker, and are looking at old Portsmouth favourite Kanu.


Many clubs will be busy today, but non more so than Ipswich.

Edwards and Leadbitter expected to be confirmed along with Gomis from Dundee. Woods will be brought in from Sheffield Wednesday for 500k, rising to 800k upon promotion.

David Wright could be moving to Reading after a bust up with Keane (which has seen two local journalists suspended from their paper incidentally)with Rk putting his faith in his newly appointed captain Alex Bruce at right–back. With McAuley linked to a £1million move to Middlesboro this would leave the club with short of defensive cover. As Suck Keane tried to sign O'Dea on loan from former club Celtic, after missing out on McManus but he has opted to move to Newcastle. Keane will use his contacts to bring in an emergency loan after the transfer window has closed and managers can see with who is surplus to their requirements.


Stoke sign uraguian midfielder and the word is david silva been seen at john lennon airport being collected by david gill watch this space!!


An extremely good source has told me that Francis Jeffers (SWFC) is in talks with Notts Co. The Owls transfer listed him after an incident with Port Vale but Sven believes that he can return to the form which saw him play for England under the Swede. The fee is only about £300K. LM
