Freddy Eastwod will move to Charlton in jan for £1.8million. Charlton have offered to buy a new pikey mobile for him and members of his close family.

Glasgow Rangers News

PLG will be leaving within in the next few weeks. He has failed to settle in Glasgow and is not enjoying life at Ibrox. He will head to back to France to take over at Marseilles or PSG. The big news however is that his replacement is Walter Smith and he will be assisted by Ally mcCoist. This has been in the pipeline for about 6 weeks. Remember where you heard it first!

I haven't posted on here because I've had no news. However I do have some now, on the eve of the transfer window. With A takeover practcally done the liverpool board will free up some funds for benitez to spend. Lucas Neill, unfortunatly, looks a done deal but with barca and possibly man u interested don't be surprised to see benitez turn his attention to micah richards to back up steve finnan. A surprise target is watford's ashley young and a fee would be 3-5 million. I can also tell you that there's a young italian striker on trial at anfield and its not lupoli, he plays for a italian 2nd division side. Don't expect to see tevez,mascherano,villa,trezuguet,daniel alves (possibly summer), Tubby ronaldo or any other stupid rumours to arrive at anfield. Even when the takeover is complete benitez won't sign more than 3 or 4 players. Money will be ploughed into the new stadium and maybe a new academy in spain (rumoured to be called after rafa himself).


French club Monaco will be looking to bring in a top class striker in January to help steer them away from the relegation zone in Ligue one. Emmanuel Adebayor left them a year ago to join Arsenal and has recently found some form at the Emirates, and Monaco haven't really replaced him properly. I hear that Benfica forward Fabrizio Miccoli could be the man to help the Stade Louis II outfit.

Villa news

aston villa will sign robbie keane this is a done deal for 6.8mil

they will also bid 5mil for kight as he wants to play for villa soon as he heard about villa were bidinng

and sell samuell and baros and bid for milner 4.5mil.

spurs news

spurs to replace keane with savloa

and win the race to sign c davies

plus to let davids leave to go to ajax for free.

Everton will but joey barton for 4m an lee carsley for in midfield 2 partner cahill and he will aslo try to get alan smith on loan and by prestons david nugent for 6m to partner aj upfront also there are rumours moyes is tryin to get a right back

Arsenal News

Arsenal will sign three players, whether they will be in January or the Summer I don't know. The three players are:

Goalkeeper - Craig Gordon (4m). With Lehamnn leaving Gordon has beaten Pele, Ustari and Ameilia to be Arsene's new no. 1.

Centre Half / Left Back Cover - Curtis Davies (7m). Senderos's form and Gallas being injury prone Arsene feels he needs five centre halfs to compete on all fronts. Yes he has Connolly and O'cearill coming through the ranks but they will not be ready for a couple of years yet! And with the price of Curtis going down to a reasonable figure (he is also best mates with Justin Hoyte) Arsene will go for the promising Centre Half.

Defensive Midfielder - Nigel Reo-Coker (8m). Gilberto has done a fantastic job this season for Arsenal but even he can not keep going the whole season. The only replacements have been Song or Flamini both players have huge potential but they are the type of players that won't get good until they hit their mid-twenties. NRC is the perfect replacement and would be the final piece in the jigsaw that will see Arsenal compete with Manu and Chelsea.

Leaving in January will be Larsson (to Birmingham), Lupoli (To Torino). Aliadiere will be given till the Summer to prove if he has gt what it takes.

Leaving in the Summer will be Lehmann (to Bayern to replace Kahn, ironic or what!) and Aliadiere if he can not convince Wenger. All the above 100% true. What is uncertain is a rumour I heard that could well see Baptista going back to Real and the money recieved for Reyes would go into buying Ribery (who for some reason people are questioning). B-MAN.

Rumours very close to home park are saying tht out of favour west ham striker carlton coel is off to home park on loan untill the end of teh season!!! also this will allow west ham to have a 1st refusal on young starlet luke summerfield!


Rams news

arturo lupoli will stay if we get promoted.

giles barnes will stay regardless of promotion

david jones will sign permanently in January.

Expect to see a good striker and a couple of defenders come in in january, crewes luke varney has been linked and so has tyrone mears but expect a good experienced centre to be in place such as pompeys andy o'brien who is out of fabour at fratton Park.

We also may see gary o'connor and freddy eastwood in derby shirts soon either in january or the the summer.

Wolves striker Carl Cort will join Crystal Palace on loan for the rest of the season. Wolves will also loan Leon Clarke out to Chesterfield. Mick Mccarthy wanted Billy Sharp from Scunthorpe but he will now sign for Watford for 1.25m. Mccarthy will sign Ben Mackey from non league Leamington and Izale Mcleod from MK Dons.

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE NEWS! A mystery consortium from London have offered Argyle a £5m investment in return for a place on the board. The payment is going to be made in time for Ollie to start shopping in January and they will make between £2m and £3m available each season for transfers. Their long term aim is to make Argyle a Premiership club buy 2009/10.

Ollie has targetted Adi Akinbiyi to solve his goalscoring problems, Birmingham's David Unsworth, Newcastle's Nicky Butt and Gillingham winger Matt Jarvis.

Liverpool transfers IN: Bodmer from Lille - 6 mil, possibly a winger to replace Pennant, but Pennant will STAY as an understudy. Lucas Neill from Blackburn for 1-2 mil, and some young talent as well. Expect the summer to be the time that Rafa goes for the big names, the striker, central midfielder and 1 or 2 wingers. This is because Rafa can see that the team can perform really well, and are finally fulfilling their potential!

Heard from a usually reliable source that Darren Bents agent was seen leaving Villa Park this weekend with Charlton's Premier league status looking shakey this sounds like a real possibilty.

I have just talked to a friend at newcastle who claims the following. Rossi will go back to man utd in january but they are interested in taking alan smith on loan. Smith WILL choose newcastle over everton sunderland, pompey and others. Neewcastle are also targeting beckham(unlikely), curtis davies,rob earnshaw and have been in talks with inter milan about signing centre back walter samuel. Expect to see Michael Owen back playing by Febuary!


Just some Rumours floating about in Glasgow, Rangers to sign Scott Brown for 2 million plus either Nacho Novo or Gavin Rae heading the other way also another Midfielder getting mentioned for a January move to Ibrox Rennes midfielder Etienne Didot whos been sold on the Idea by French U21 team mate Jeremy Clement. expect bids for Aberdeen captain Russel Anderson and a german U21 defender, also Andy Webster to go to Rangers for a crazy deal got something to do with Webster cancelling his Hearts contract but couldnt join the Gers when it happened but opted for JJB stadium Wigan want Kris Boyd plus 300k for the deal to go ahead Which might happen as Paul Le Guen is not a fan of Boyds. In the Summer expect AC Milan powerhouse Rino Gattuso to return to Ibrox hes had a fall out with the board and wants to leave with either a move to Aresnal, Manchester United or Rangers his preffered destination. Rangers to sign Ivica Olic whos dubbed the New Dado Prso Dado has had talks with him and told him that He will love playing in Glasgow plus if Gers get Champions League football next season expect Olic to be the Gers new number 9 as he thinks Paul Le Guen can do a decent run in Champions League. Celtic to sign Beckham on the same deal as Nakamura he has control of all his Image rights and will take a wage cut but will still be Scotlands top earner at 60,000 a week, also Kladic the left back will sign celtic won't sign Kluas-Jan Huntlaar Ajaxs asking price is at least 12 million this is to try n stop Man Utd making approches for the player but Celtic could sign Ryan Babel, an Midielder from the Premiership is getting lined up as Neil Lennons replacement but don't know any names for him yet remember ppl just Romours Ive heard in some of the Pubs in Glasgow

GOOOONER-NEWS Nigel Reo-Coker has said that he will resist all other clubs to secure his dream move to Arsenal!AW is also very interested in Manuel Fernandes(benfica)who has just been on loan at Portsmouth.Arsenal are looking to get him on a 6 month loan deal with a view to a permanant signing?French youngster Gilles Sunu has set his heart on a move to Arsenal with the clubs already in talks.Lupoli,Larsson,Ljungberg,Poom,Gilbert,Lauren,Aliadiere and Lehmann will all be leaving the club in the next 2 transfer windows.

I think a reality check is in order for Hammers fans (the best in London). The Iceman is not Roman and does not have the resources to perennially bankroll a team. You forget that after the transfers are made the players have to be paid as well. A player who can merit 20 million pounds on the transfer market is probably going to demand 5-8 million pounds a year in wages and the Boleyn Ground and no Europe can't support those wages. Sad but true. Arsenal added only 22,000 seats with the move to Emirates but the 8,000 club seats and 2,000 seats in private boxes earn more than a sell out at West Ham. Man U has 18,000 more seats than Arsenal but Arsenal makes significan'tly more each game day because of the cost of those seats, which is warranted because London has a lot more money than Manchester (or Liverepool, or Newcastle, or Glasgow).

Reo-coker is on his way to Arsenal in January, but I think Curbs will want a player on relatively low wages as part of the package- 'trading' players is done all the time in North American sports like ice hockey and baseball but is relatively rare in European football- you are going to see a lot more of it in the future if for no other reason than to deprive agents of their ill-gotten gains. Anyway, look for Aliadiere and/or Senderos to go to West Ham.

I also heard a weird one today- if Lauren comes back to full fitness before the end of the window, look for Eboue to move to Real Madrid with Hoyte (an Englishman!) supplying cover on the right flank.

Chelsea to buy Fernando Torres on 64 million pounds.

Andriy Shevchenko is going back to Italy, but now to Inter Milan


to the person who said PETER CROUCH isn't good enough 2 play 4 ARSENAL , IF peter crouch can play 4 ENGLAND . He can play 4 ARSENAL any day ! Expect Hoyte who hasn't played 4 AFC in the last 7 games 2 leave come january with poom , senderos. As 4 Craig gordon he might go 2 arsenal but Wenger will probaly move 4 Yohann pele instead .

SWINDON TOWN - Christian Roberts WILL be going in january, with Sturrock keeping tabs on Swansea striker Adebayo Akinfenwa, who would come on loan till the end of the season.

Roy Keane has been sounding out Micheal Ball after the ex Everton and Rangers Left back stated that he was ready to leave PSV EINDHOVEN.

A freind of mine works in eindhoven and somtimes talks to micheal in a bar who confirmed his agent had met for talks.

SAFs surprise signing in the January window will be Patrick Viera.

Liverpool transfers 100% true. January tansfers will be Lucas Neill 1m + Warnock. Rafa will also look at bringing in Van der vart from Hamburg. This will be the only signings in January. The summer will see Rafa bid for the following; Torres(more than likely go to Manure though), Simao,Mascherano (if released), Aaron Lennon, Huntellar, Klose and Anton Ferdinand. LFC4LIFE

To the guy that said about ribery going to arsenal, and saying that we aren't got room for ANOTHER worldclass mf, ive got news for you, we havent got any world class midfielders and neither have you. and ribery is not worldclass anyway, far from it. arsenal to sign sahin in summer.

Boro will sack Graeth Southgate and will install Alan Pardew as manager. You heard it here first!


I have it on good authority that Everton will sign both Joey Barton and Kevin Nolan in January. Barton will sign for a fee of 4 million and Nolan will cost 2 million plus James Beattie. Everton are also considering launching a loan bid for Barcelona youngster Givanni Dos Santos.

Wolves news

We r gnna buy Stephen Ward Strikr & Midfeildr Kevin Derry bth frm the irish tp flite

Why would Huntelaar or Neill go to Newcastle? Its a sinking ship for a start, and secondly, why would Newcastle want to break their transfer policy of paying over the odds for crap players? In this respect, Necastle will offer Celtic 4mil for Balde and will attempt to lure 'goal machine' James Beattie from Everton. Big Club? Your having a laugh. Follow Follow

To all the ill-informed planks

1)Wayne bridge will NOT be leaving as he has signed an extension to his contract last month

2)Geremi will not be leaving as he is now important to the squad and he is happy in playing so many games

3)Jose will not go as sheva will not go, just give sheva more time

4)SWP may leave in January but only as part of a swap deal for Richards

5) Diarra will leave in January to marseille

The only Chelsea players to leave will be Diarra and Swp and a centre back will be bought(kompany) and a rigjht back will be bought(Richards

Chelsea to win the title by mid Febuary

Doncaster manager Sean O'D to raid former club,in january. Look for James Hayter, Warren Cummings and josh gowling linking up with the mighty rovers The futures bright the future is red n white.

Forget Owen Hargreaves, Fernando Torres, Nani, Simao coming in january. You Know why let me explain Owen is not match fit yet, Torres is too costly, Nani hmm not sure but will not come, Simao can't play in Champions league so united won't go for him, But Guess what who is coming next to OT well u might be surprised but his name is "PAVEL NEDVED" he is getting frustrated in playing Seria B and would come in straight to United midfield as he is some quality and is eligible to play in champoins league also. Sir Alex had already surprised many with larsson deal and he has promised another surprise so watch out for this space. Manchester United Till Death- Amit Sood


Bale to West Ham

Konchesky to Everton

Hargreaves to Man Utd

Pennant to Newcastle

Arsenal transfer priority wll be a centre-back with Mexes top of the list followed by Davies, wide-man probably Navas, then a goalkeeper either Akinfeev, Gordon or Pele, Bale is a possibility.

I heard that if preston do cash in on david nugent in january for what they feel to be a good price they will replace him with david healy.

Why does everyone keep sayin fletcher to leave united? ferguson see's him as a great prospect who's just unfortunate to have paul scholes to battle for his shirt.

silvestre will go, most likely to portsmouth or newcastle. o'shea is wanted by newcastle and reading but SAF isn't keen to sell. smith to go on loan to watford for the season, no view to sign permenantly.
