Inside sources are saying that Liverpool will sell Aquilani, Mach and Kyut to fund monies to sack Benitez and his staff. This person says Benitez has been told he is off, they just need to line–up buyers for the players. They are hoping to recoup 60% of the true value for each of these players.

Torres will be sold in Summer as his value will be at its peak after the WC. Milan, Inter, Barcelona, Chelsea and ManU are in the hunt.


Arsenal to get a defender & a striker.
Defender to be one of Sakho, van der Wiel, Zapata or Subotic.
Striker to be one of Adriano, Gigniac or Podolski (I want Podolski).
Sendros will probably go in Jan.



MON is anticipating bids and talk about his teams English talent. As he has stated no–one will be leaving in January unless he has written requests handed in to leave. James Milner to Liverpool please give us a break Liverpool are a sinking ship who would want to sign for them??? Not a player who has moved three times in the present date of his career and plus he is going to South Africa and a move for Liverpool wouldn't do his form good at all!

Real Rumours
Marlon Harewood to Newcastle/QPR – 2 mill
Luca Toni – Hammers
Roysten Drenthe – Villa
Julien de Guzman – Villa
Aguero – Chelsea
Huntalaar – Arsenal
Shawcross – United


CRISIS MEETING AT LIVEROOL, Insiders say Rafa has already been told he has to finish in the top four If he fails he WILL be replaced in the summer, Hicks and Gillet have pledged to back Rafa in the transfer market this January and given him £15m+ revenue from the sale of Dossena and Voronin and possibly others. Babel will not be sold, Mascherano will not be sold until at least the summer.


––––––––––––––––––––Comrades! Urgent news from the front!! There will be a 'crisis conference' at Anfield late tomorrow afternoon (monday). Present in person or by video will be the following:– Hicks, Gillette, Purslow, Benitez, Gerrard, Lee, Dalglish. There are major problems motivation–wise within the team. When the Americans clawed back £55M from Rafa's transfer kitty that he had built up, the players were already aware that two major signings were about to be made (literally days away) involving nearly all of that money. That all fell by the wayside as the Americans decided to pay down the debt instead, which in turn destroyed the team's morale. There is a major major split developing with Hicks and Gillette on one side and the rest united around Rafa on the other. The Americans refuse point blank to accept that quality players cost so much money and believe that the team's fanbase is secure enough and large enough to make it economically acceptable to be a middle–ranking team with cheaper players for at least the next 5 seasons as they continue to pay down the debt and get the new stadium underway. This is unacceptable to the Rafa camp. Rafa is going nowhere unless forced and if he goes then the others will walk with him along with several senior players. This has been made plain to the Americans who are not happy and are even more annoyed in that although they have a choice of three potential backers, all three want an equal share awith the Americans and a say in the day–to–day running of the club which the Americans are not willing to relinquish. Dark days indeed. Onwards to US–inspired mediocrity!! RED LENIN


Give up sayin torres is goin here or there for 60mill, he's said he wants to stay for a while yet and if he was to go it would b back to spain or italy, macherano is off to barca in the summer, out in jan will b dossena, voronin, pacheco, degen. totallin about 12mill, which will be spent rather regretably on adam johnson from boro. that's all rafa will do as his last stand as boss, unless we get 4th, he's gone in summer.

beckford unlikely

nick bailey

killa is going to neewcastle

This might be total rubbish , but apparently Rafa will leave (he is already sacked) after the Wolves game, the 10m put aside for the transfer will be given as compensation to Rafa with more money to be given to him at a later date if he does not get another Job. Kenny and Lee will be in charge till the end of the season at least , Torres will be sold in Jan both City and Chelsea have offered around the 60m, Gerrard is not happy with the situation in particular that Sammy lee will still be around and Gerrard view him as the cause for the decline, I won't be surprised if Phil Thompson was brought back by Kenny, he is still popular within Anfield. I am a Liverpool fan for 30 years and Kenny is a legend , but I do n't think he got in him still to manage in the premiership.

David nugent may go to burnley in a perminant move


Mark Hughes to Liverpool anyone?


Markus Babbel will be Liverpool manager by Dec 30. He will buy–––Dietmar hamann free, miroslav klose 6m, huddlestone and bentley combined 15m and gary cahill 4m. –––––OUT–Dossena loan, babel 10m man city, kuyt 12m ac milan.
––––Franco Zuculini will be swapped for lucas in summer.


Two red–hot rumours:

Jermaine Beckford will be a Premiership player in January – Wigan are prepared to pay £2.5m for the Leeds striker, but face competition from Everton, Fulham and Spurs.

Victor Moses and Sean Scannell will also be on the move in January, as Neil Warnock will not be getting any money from Simon Jordan. Expect Moses to go to one of Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea, Barcelona or Bayern Munich with Scannell off to either Liverpool or Man Utd.

Palace will pocket in excess of £10m and look to bring in Simeon Jackson and Greg Pearson in the transfer window.


Cardiff City will face an investigation from the FA and FAW about their scheduled home game against Leicester not going ahead, despite the club having adequate under–soil heating and drainage infiltration system.

There are rumours on the streets of Cardiff, according to various sources, that the game was purposely cancelled to suit the Bluebirds and the club will face a strong fine if this is true as well as the docking of 3 points.


With the rapid development of Victor Moses at Crystal Palace, Rafa has targeted him to sign for Liverpool this winter. Rafa is up against Arsenal, Hoffenheim and Barcelona, but with Moses not wanting to go abroad and Arsenal not being able to offer him regular first team football, Liverpool looks the obvious choice. Even if Rafa is sacked before the Transfer Window opens, he has passed on the idea to both Sammy Lee and Kenny Dalglish, with Kenny especially wanting to work with the 19 year old. 7m will be the fee as the other interested clubs are only going to bid 5m. Goran Pandev will sign a pre–contract in January and will also sign on loan, as Lazio have no intention of playing him or the rest of the season. He will partner Torres up front.


Man united will launch a bid for Andy Carroll of Newcastle United and Micah Richards of Man City in January. Federico Macheda will be sent on loan to West Ham providing he gets game time. Nani will not be sold however Park will be after the world cup as united seek a creative midfielder


Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will break out the chequebook in January as recent performances have concerned him. Nani will go to Inter for around £10M. United will take Ezequial Garay on loan from Real Madrid and if a success will sign for £6M in the summer. Gary Cahill is also on the shopping list for around £8M. A creative midfielder is desperately needed with Silva looking a likely buy.


Liverpool will not sack Rafa Benitez because of the compensation. They will give him 5m. He is looking at Pandev–4m, Adriano–Free and Joaquin–Swap With Riera.
Man City want AM, RB, LB, GK, Winger. Danny, Van der Wiel, Grosso, Krasic, Perotti, Ramires, Y.Toure,
Azpilucueta, Abidal, Patricio. Arsenal are looking at Sakho–5m, Chamakh–5m, Hulk–10m, Kalou–10m.


As i predicted, mark hughes has been sacked n replaced by mancini, mancini is looking to sell unhappy players like robinho and micah richards, kolo toure, n fringe players like benjani, IN;fabio grosso, and angel dimaria and riberry and 2 top class defenders are his targets


Things look like they are getting even worse at beligured PNE. A number of PNE "fans" verbally abused Irvine as he left the Forrest ground on Saturday. Coming back from the game on the coach, Alan Irvine let 2 players know his thoughts on their continuing poor performence. Unfortunatly the players took it the wrong way and a number of arguments broke out between the players and Irvine. Chaplow and Wallace will now leave during the Jan transfer window as they don't want to stay at a club with Alan Irvine as manager.


Hey poser, please don't use my name and rumor (fact) from 3–months ago as your own. I said Hughes would be out and Mancini would be in long before your little wee brain even thought about City's need to deliver this season.

Benitez is next on the chopping block. He should be rolling out of Anfield tomorrow morning – I had predicted end–of–December for Benitez back in August but his team delivered early. This will trigger the departures of Mach and Torres in the Jan window.

This is...In the Know.
