Hearts f.c

leroy lita has been seen at tynecastle today with regards to a swap deal involving robbie neilson and juno makela going to reading along with £250,000
  Breaking News; Man City have offered Chelsea £190m for Lampard (£60m), Terry (£45m), Drogba (£30m), Alex (£15m), Essien (£35m), and Cudicini (£5m).
They also intend on making bids for Realís Sergio Ramos (£40m), Daniel Agger (£15m) and an improved offer for Craig Bellamy (approx £15m) and of course Kaka for £110m.

Total spend – £370m, yes thatís £370m; slightly more than I earn in a month.

Within the Bellamy deal expect Benjani to head to the Boleyn Ground as it is not a straight cash purchase. This should, with the players already there fire Man City up the table and into a CL spot. I have a mole in the Eastlands and she feeds me with the transfer info when she finds out.

If you feed the goat, he will score; True Blue Nosel McWhirte
  Jay Enrique Rodriguez of Burnley FC is been strongly linked with a loan move to either Valladolid or Numancia.

Deportivo will make the move for Zť Castro a permanant after a good start to the season. Roughly around Ä2 million
  Manchester United and Arsenal are both keeping tabs on Burnley pair Chris Anderson and Alex Ray–Havey. Both are keen to snap the pair up before they sign professional deals at Burnley.

Burnley will sign Darren O'Dea on loan from Celtic and he will go straight into the squad for the league cup semi final against Spurs
  After the way harry rednapp reacted to Darren Bents glearing miss for tottenham on sunday saying 'my missus coulda scored that' and after to his coaching staff 'how the fing hell did he miss that' the strong rumour is that he will leave for one of West Ham/Everton/Newcastle/ or amazingly Reading –LFCFORLIFE–
  My sisters mate works in Liverpool Airport and has sighted Jankulovski in WH Smith. Reports have suggested that Bolton are interested. Just got off the phone to my friend in London are reports suggest that QPR are lining up a bid for Cambridge youngster Richard Hetherington.
Dont know whats happening at LFC at the moment with Rafa, but i have heard that funds to buy Ashley Young have been made available and a bid in the region of 15 mill is imminent. Villa are buying Diego Forlan and if they sell Young they will replace him with McGeady who MON knows well. In public MON states he would never sell Young, but in private he really likes McGeady and if LFC come up with the dosh he will sell! Villa scouts have also been in Italy, dunno who they were watching though.
  I was recently in the Liverpool 1 shopping centre. After my shopping was over with, I returned to the car park to pick up my car. To do this, I had to take the lift up a couple of floors. Imagine my surprise when the door opened and inside stood a prominent Everton player (I can't so which one for obvious reasons). I didn't want to badger him so I just nodded towards him, and he returned that nod. Okay, so the life continues its journey up, or, rather, it grinds to a halt! We were stuck in that damned lift for over 30 minutes. After 5 minutes of those, the prominent Everton player and I began the usual chit chat. When I admitted to being interested in the game myself, he became very, very friendly. Given that he had become so open, I decided to ask him about David Moyes' transfer targets. Here is what he explained: Behind the scenes David Moyes is very busy. Most recently he has been in discussion with Harry Redknapp about taking Darren Bent on loan. This deal is pretty much sorted as I type. Bent just needs to agree lower his personal terms, and the loan is in the bag. Moyes has also asked about David "Big Time Charlie" Bentley, but was turned down on that front since Moyes would not commit to signing the overrated playmaker should the loan be a success. But on all accounts, Moyes and Bill Kenwright are are going to go back in with a "sweetener" for Harry, and we all know that Harry likes those! Another target is Elano of Manchester City. Again this is a loan deal with a view to purchase at the end of that. Most startling, was that Moyes has asked about taking two Liverpool players, which are Jermaine Pennant and Yossi Benayoun. Various other names were put forward by the Everton player, but he insisted that those discussed above are Moyes' favoured target.

Unfortunately the lift was repaired at that point so I couldn't get any more information from this man, nor would I have pushed him anyway. That's not the type of person I am. What I did get from him, though, were two free tickets to tonight's derby (Monday). As he promised, they arrived in the mail on Saturday morning. What a gent!
  Arsenal News – Stop Press – Micheal Owen to Arsenal by the end of the month £6.5Million.
  Big twist on the Arshavin front. Rumours in Russia are suggesting that Man City are about to enter the race to sign him and surprisingly Arshavin is said to prefer a move to Man City rather than the glorious Gunners. Who says money doesn't talk!!
  To rafas sangria im from west derby i didnt think you would know the area of liverpool any talking to some of the lads who have heard we are possibley getting Bent and Bentley off spurs on loan this not the first time ive heard this The Big Man COYB
  Now Zola has some money to spend from Bellamy's sale to Man.City,expect him to make bids for Joe Ledley from Cardiff,Alex from Chelsea and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo from Fiorentina. Zola may also enquire about taking Aaron Ramsey on loan from Arsenal,with a view to a permanent deal in May.
  Mancity wil n0t sign kaka in jan but they may sign him in the for liverpool they wil n0t sign any0ne in jan bt in the summer they wil make huge signings – aguero 35m , david silva 15m with babel g0ing 2 valencia ,sergio asenj0 8mil, hamsik 10m

  Liverpool could soon secure a player who has been compared to fernando torres.

his name is robert lewandowski
and he plays for polish side lech poznan.
the 20year old is a goal machine.
  Man City to sign Kaka, C. Ronaldo, Messi, Fabregas, Torres, Casillas, Buffon, Xavi, John Terry and Sergio Ramos this month. Only joking. Nice to see a City supporter on here who is not all about the money and does appreciate the players they have such as Ireland and Wright–Phillips, who did not cost 100 mil but are effective and win games. Aside from the beyond insane City and on to Arsenal. It is pretty much confirmed before the deal is done that Arsenal will sign Andrei Arshvin early this week for 15–17 mil. This will be confirmed by Friday. Other Arsenal targets include Matthew Upson (12 mil), Niko Kranjcar (15 mil), Michael Johnson (10 mil) and Mark Noble (8 mil). Expect Mattew Upson to be signed before the end of January and possibly a holding midfielder. With Arshavin comming in and Fabregas, Rosicky, Walcott, Eduardo, Gallas and Silvestre all returning from injury soon, expect Arsenal to become an even stronger force than they currently are. The only problem we will have once a top four finish in ensured will be selection choice. Adebayor and van Persie will continue as the strike force of the 4–4–2. The midfield will certainly include Fabregas, Arshavin and Nasri. The final place in the midfield will be contested for by Rosicky and Walcott. If it is Rosicky, he would either go central midfield alongside Fabregas, with Nasri on the left and Arshavin on the right, or on the right with Nasri on the left, Fabregas central and Arshavin sitting off of the two strikers. If it is Walcott, he will go right with Nasri left, and Fabregas central and Arshavin again sitting off the main strikers. I would hope that it is given to Rosicky, as he is a world–class, experienced midfielder who was part of the very strong side of last season. Walcott is still young and still has developing to do. His time is still yet to come. Arsenal will become a force to be reckoned with once the transfer window is over and all are back from injury.

As for my team, Arsenal, we will sign Arshavin for 16.5 mil and also Lorik Cana for 8–10 mil.

  Rangers FC – Latest

The latest i've heard from inside Murray Park is that the one leaving will be Alan McGregor. Walter sees this transfer as the one least likely to disrupt the team as Alexander is an able replacement, and Walter will speak to his mate sir alex to take Ben Foster on loan as cover.

Spurs and Man City are both sniffing around and require new keepers ,although Man City would rather have Shay Given, but time is running out.

A bid of around £5.5m will be accepted, and Walter will be given around £2.5m to add to the squad. Rumour has it he may spend it on one player that being either aussie left midfielder from Palermo Mark Brescaino or Tonel from Sporting Lisbon to strengthen the defence as Davie Weir is on his last season and his last legs. Other alternatives would be David Healy from Sunderland £1m and Stranzl £1m + centre half from Spartak Moscow.

Watch this space. . . . . . .
  Harry Redknapp (tottenham manager) is trying to persuade Mr.Levy (tottenham's chairman) to make a 15 million pounds bid for Wigan's Wilson palacios quickly before Manchester City do!!!
  To the guy who wrote "Yohann Gourcuff to Arsenal in the summer for 6 to 8 million depending on apperances"

Sorry mate bordeaux have him on loan and have first refusal on him as part of the deal with a £13 million pound buy out clause.
  Spurs are in big trouble down the bottom this will cause a mini clearout in the days leading up to jan players in mcgeady 9m, bent going the other way on 6 months loan, palacios 14m, boughera 5.5m due to king's injury, expect another striker possibly cavenaghi or viduka players out zokora 9.5m real madrid jenas 11m inter
  Everton to buy Australian international Mark Bresciano for 12 million pounds. David Moyes thinks Bresciano is a skillfull, expierienced and relentless midfielder whose tireless displays on the pitch and maurauding attacking runs would strengthen the everton midfield. He also believes that the attacking chemistry he has with Cahill from there international team games will be a huge asset to everton. Another reason for this buy is that it will releave pressure off the team if cahill is out injured and pressure off the midfield if cahill has to play striker.

  Will people stop saying Mendes will leave Rangers.He has played for Pompey and Rangers so far this season so can't leave until the summer for god sake. .so leave it will you.
Boyd and Ferguson may go if bids come in this week. .we only need to sell 1 but if 2 go then a centre half will brought in. .That's all that's happening at Rangers .
  Irish players on the move. .
Baird Fulham to Rangers
Sproule Bristol City to Aberdeen
Shiels Hibs to Rangers
  Big news out of paisley, playmaker extraordinare Andy Dorman is on his way out of St.Mirren. With the old firm Stoke, Fulham, Bolton waiting in the wings. (4 – 7 million)

Also according to my sources a middle eastern consortium could make a bid to buy St Mirren. They see them as the new force in the SPL. More to follow. . .
  Firstly, the actual Man.City bid 4 Kaka is known 2 no–one except Milan and City the numbers being made up are ridiculous.

Arsenal will most likely complete the deal 4 Arshavin barring a major complication like a hijack from another club. He will probably wear the No.23 shirt

Arsenal are also interested in City's Michael Johnson who is going cheap now that City are likely 2 sign De Jong. Sebastian Battaglia is also on the shortlist.

Rafa Benitez is being lined up as permanent manager 4 Real Madrid as Ramos's tenure will only b extended if he wins La Liga or UCL

Chelsea will sell Drogba after Scolari's commments after the Stoke City match they will accept 10–15 million pounds

Man Utd will sign a promising young manager following Ferguson's retirement. They are looking 4 someone who is willing 2 take on a long term project 2 see the team into the new decade.
  Reading manager Steve Coppell is after highly rated Leicester midfielder Andy King. Nigel Pearson is reluctant to sell, but John Madejski is ready to back Coppell if it means Reading end up back in the Premier League. Reading are also after Peterborough attacker George Boyd & Pompy striker David Nugent.
  Plenty of stuff on here lately regarding Liverpool and Nico Krancjar and Aiden McGeady. Rafa was 'pushed' into the Keane deal against his own wishes and better judgement hence his current refusal to sign a contract unless he gets transfer control. He doesn't want that to happen again. As for McGeady/Krancjar, Rafa sees the style of McGeady as an possible answer to the right side of midfield or even behind Torres in the Dalglish style. He is just unsure about McGeady's 'professionalism' off the pitch. Krancjar he sees as an ideal player to play behind Torres also. Funnily enough, another name that keeps cropping, which I mentioned here in the early summer, is Joe Cole. My source for all of this? My father's golfing buddies who happen to be Liverpool players present and retired.
  Forest news. . .first to the very sad man talking about Forest going down, check the results pal we are on the up and up. Mid table safety this year and watch them go next. To the fool who said Tyson will go to Preston!!!!!! Not for sale and why would he go to a club in decline? and for 1.5 million? Just signed a new 3 year deal and going nowhere. Just goes to show, only I know the real news, Rob Jones to come down from scotland along with Zander Diamond. Possibly Richard Cresswell coming in on loan as well. Dan the ever so Main Man, beware imitators.
  As well as looking for a defender, Ricky Sbragia is also interested in signing Jermaine Jenas who has been out of favor of late. He has also enquired as to the availability of Darren Bent who was offered to Sunderland in a swap deal for Kenwyne Jones.
