Newcastle to sign lassana diarra from real madrid on an intial 6 month loan deal with a view 6 million move in the summer(13)(34)Real Madrid value him at around the 20 million they paid for him.He didn't have a bad game against Barca midweek. No way would they let him go on loan, only permanent for like the guy said about decent moneyYou skunks are startin to get a bit carried away methinksShake ur head u fool and stop listerning to rubbish down your local pubAlways liked Diarra - he's the kind of player you need in CMF alongside Tiote. If the club has any ambitions on gatecrashing European positions these are the players to get you there. Don't know how long he has left on his current deal - that might affect the price downwards if he hasn't too long leftMourinho said no Real Madrid player will leave and also no one will be signed in this window, plus we wouldnt stand a chance he wouldnt move to the north east unfortunatlyPlus we would have no chance of matching his wage demands he;s the kind of player that would ask for 70-90k a week, we aint goin to pay him that, thankfullyGet back to playing champ manager m8

19 Jan 2012 23:09:41


daviebhoy08Neither club would get promoted at first attempt, maybe not even second or third. They are very poor teams and the likes of Southampton, West Ham, Leicester, Birmingham etc would wipe the floor with them. In the Championship there are no easy games, in Scotland every game they play, apart from each other is like playing a conference team here. I hope they do join so the reality of how bad they are comes to light

The ShadowSo celtic and rangers will happily play in the english championship but the SFA refuse to allow scottish players in team GB....u need to stop smokin whatever it is your on mateThe Real Deal is winding you up..........Hillarious!!

As much as I would love to see it happen, it never will. Would be far too embarrassing for them. Also would place a massive strain on their finances, and any player there joining for glory would soon be out of the door.

Great post though.U cant get out much cause u talk one load of s### ,what do u know about Celtic or for that matter Rangers,only thing is we dont get 20 or 30 million handed to us every year,and nobody is saying the spl is a great league but youve got to play whats put in front of you.League one al crack the jokes,r u just ignorant or r u just taking the p##s u dont have a clue how big we r and how much bigger we would get given the same revenue,were surviving on little or no money coming our way and thats purely because of the size of us worldwide,id like to see 3 quarters of epl try and make do a dont think so,so give yourself a break along with everybody else that havent a clue about our famous club. Mag7 {Ed001's Note - are Celtic and Rangers involved in the European Super League? Because I would say that is the test of a club's standing in Europe, the big clubs have been involved in the talks.}Stop shouting anyway it wont happen so stop dreamingThe reason the scottish fa joke lol have said they dont want any scottish players joke in the GB team as they arent good enough and would be token players on the bench- lets be honest out of the three nations they are by far the worstI live in scotland pal and the stadard of football is crap including the OF you can harp on about money till the cows come home it wont make you any better you are on a road to nothingness and when your co effeciant gets battered again when you go out at the third qualifying round dont come greeting to usthere are undoubtably bigger leagues but not many bigger clubs and that includes those in the epl ask the scottish managers in the epl if you want a truthful answer.I would love to see SAF answer on this page. {Ed001's Note - bigger in what way? Number of European trophies? Rangers and Celtic are big clubs with a big fanbase of people who have one or the other as their second team. But they are no longer big clubs in terms of Europe, they are no longer considered as amongst the top rank of clubs. Asking the Scots if something about Scotland is important is a bit stupid to be honest. Of course they will think it is, they are biased, just like yourself. Scotland needs to sort out its league quickly, before even Celtic and Rangers lose their status completely.}How many good players do England have you lot are the BIGGEST under achievers in world football given the size of your nation.!!Scottish players have already been asked to play in tesm GB please keep up.Some have said yes,and some have said no.AllyScotlands shame the bigot brothers ,
English football ,same crap different week ,month ,year , decade nobody wants them why would you .Population has nothing to do with it....The best Rugby nation in the world is New Zealand with a population of 4.3 million Scotland has 5.2 million explain that one, you are the best in the world at tossing the Caber with your limited population and that stupid game where people sweep the iceAs it should be!If I were the FA I wouldnt allow those two clubs into any League in England, if those two clubs are allowed then why not aberdeen, dundee, Hibs, Hearts....Scottish football is where it is becasue the old firm preferred foreign stars 10 to 15 years ago instead of spending that money introducing and developing scottish born youngsters.dont get me wrong i enjoyed watching the likes of larsson numan etc play but what chgance had these young scots have to develop or even get a sniff onf the first team.murrays millions when advocaat was in charge at rangers and the biscuit tim a=t celtic park at this time has put scottish football at leat 10 years behind the like of spain,germany and not an olf frim fan but i so support hibernian who have developed some talent over the last 5/10 years steven fletcher at wolves being the most high profile and its a shame that the old fim and other scottish clubs are only ythinking about this now that they cant afford to bring in these exports now.i reckon it will be at least 10 years beofre you see a scottisg side one again being looked on as serious opposition in for moving down south i think it may happen but i dont think that clubs in the conference/2nd division down souht would be too pleased if the old fim went straight to the 1st division when they are all struggling from week to week trying to get there.Don't want these second rate teams in our League!Haha, how are we the biggest underachievers if you are going on size of nation, that would mean the likes of America, Canada, Russia, China, India, etc so be whiping the floor with absolutely everyone!Drugs are badGet them in! would be funny to actually see how they do in our leagues! but could be an upset too, nobody knows until it happens! for all we know they could get back to back promotions and end up as a mid table prem team..Hang on!! your all forgetting the main point....does scotland actully have a football team?You guys are clueless. Rangers and Celtiv are 10x the clubs any in the championship are. They have about 20x the support of each and Rangers have beaten Liverpool at ibrox and drawn with Man U at old Traff in the Champs League. How many Diddy teams in the championship or premiership can boast that? especially teams who are only given 3 million a year to spend. Get a grip, both halves of the OF would be good enough to stay in the prem, add 40Mill to that per year and they would challenge for honours. they are in the top 10 most supported clubs in the world. The inconvenient truth about the championship is, that no1 cares about it. We know that about the SPL so its time you accept it. At least we have Europe each year. You have nothing.If we r not noticed in europe anymore why is it that we have one of the best home records in any european competition with some of the best teams out there including some of your big epl teams,our away record isnt that good ill give you that,we can compete with any of them without your dosh,so get your head out the toilet and reply back when u come in from school lolDont bloody want them in englandTrolling. Wumming. Call it what you want, this is a great example of it. Wind 'em up and watch 'em go.Well the SNP have set 2014 for a referendum on independence so if they succeed in thier quest, this will never be in question again so let's just kill this topic all together I say.Will never happen ...i do love the arrogant english people commenting thinking they are the best at everything and scotland are s truth of the matter is rangers and celtic are 2 of the biggest clubs in british football much bigger than most EPL clubs. only reason EPL is a great league is down to SKY and the money (but the bubble will burst soon enough) if the old firm had the same money same level playing field they could attract world class players pay them big money and improve ...and as for guy saying no scots players are good enough for team GB ...STEVEN FLETCHER,,,JORDAN RHODES,,ROBERT SNODGRASS ,to name 3 who are highly sought after by top clubs and are banging in goals ....bigtBest and most honest post of the year! i have to agree the championship sides would be rubbing there hands at the thought of this,12 easy points for everyone in that league when these 2 join! they will never make it out that league but don't worry they still have a lot of support.The bubble wont burst mate you just hope it will but by then youll be in the icelandic leagueU must be on your lunchbreak son away and play with your pals and leave the big stuff for the adults.I concur that drugs are bad, mkay.Eds note,s001 are you trying to tell me that you know better than the Scottish managers in the epl ,unbelieveable English arrogance at its best,you're obviously very biased due to the fact you are English!! {Ed001's Note - or perhaps you are just too arrogant to bother to read what I said? I said I wouldn't listen to their opinion due to the fact they would naturally be biased. I would rather get the opinion of those who aren't biased, such as coaches from abroad. But you carry on with your childish little rants about others being arrogant, purely because you fail to read what is said properly. Big clubs get invited to the talks about the future of European football, did Celtic and Rangers? Because if they did, then all these arguments about how big a club they are can be dismissed, because they would clearly be amongst Europe's elite. If not, then you will have to accept they are no longer considered amongst the biggest clubs in Europe. I honestly can't remember whether either were.}Get a grip the lot of yous if the scottish game is tht bad how come every season epl teams come to scotland to take our players and good few scottish managers in epl tooJust a thought if the epl is that great and the spl is that poor how come Charlie Adam was never a star in our league but a revelation in yours ???As long as you are looking at independance
you can forget joining any English League.Your league is that good that your top two team who have spent millions arent even in the champ league last 16 and the likes of basel and napoli put them out...just proves its no as good as you all think....your no where near the spanish league and ur national team are no where near the spanish and never will be end ofWhy do some believe they will automatically go up and stay in the Prem? Maybe mid table championship at best. All this nonsense that they will get better ever year yawn yawn yawnOutside man utd biggest teams in the uk not talking about money


19 Jan 2012 22:55:04
Snodgrass of leeds is set to join Leicester City after a fee was agreed between the 2 sides today.(15)(18)He is a prem player & will move 2 Norwich on a freeAnother totally rubbish rumour.On a FREE !?!?! His contract doesn't run out until the end of next season (2013). YOU OBVIOULY DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT !! LOL!Actually some very knowledgable people on twitter have been talking about this. Apparently 4.5 million. Leeds won't turn that down and Leicester have the finances to pay him well. I would say "watch this space"4.5 million you can have him help you fight relegation, leicester are rubbish!!Some very knowledgable people on twitter have said this rumour is rubbish. If Snoddy goes, and unlikely until summer then it will be to PL.I wish I could rate this rumour, oh wait I can
Possibility.. 2/10

SOURCE- SQUEAKYBUMTIME.COM(18)(1)Would love this to happen, wages will be an issue though! Not sure why he'd pay the 5k himself though, surely just ask QPR to stop paying him and then Watford give him 5k a week.

19 Jan 2012 22:30:54
Hi guys! Just a couple of things to get of my chest! First to the Barnsley idiotic fans who booed Billy Sharp just days after his son died: HAVE A HEART! How would you like it if your son died and people took the p out of u?! I understand he goads fans when he scores, BUT that is the way he is! I for 1 will applaud him IF he scores against us on Saturday. That guy deserves a bravery medal. Now to the rumours! Mark McGhee to Bristol Rovers? BAD MOVE I think. They should have appointed Keith Curle. Ed do you know what is happening with Matthew Briggs? I heard that DEL-BOY has signed him on loan? COME ON U REDS!! {Ed001's Note - the lad from Fulham? All I know regarding him is that Fulham were looking for a loan move for him in the Championship, but they wanted guaranteed football for him. I have not heard of anyone actually getting him though.}(8)(3)About the Sharp thing....IT NEVER HAPPENED!!! I was there and check the recent press coverage that appologised you clown!!I feel i need to reply to this idiotic fan - it has not been confirmed that anyone booed Sharp directly aimed at him losing his son 1 The boos were aimed at him being from Sheffield. Also it was weeks after his loss and I like many fans did and still do feel sorry for his loss. Please get your facts right before posting such trash. {Ed013's Note - I have it on good authority that there was 1 fan that tried singing about Billy's son and was rightly "sorted out by other Barnsley fans" around him and then the stewards chucked him out. Disgusting, some fans need to realise its a game, not a chance to bring someone down by slagging off their families}I am not a Barnsley fan, but lets get one thing straight, the alleged chanting did not happen and I dont see why Barnsley should be tainted with it. the facts are, one person attempted to sing but was quickly put in his place by Barnsley fans...ED..Ia m surprised you allowed this post to be sanctioned {Ed001's Note - why? He never claimed it to be all the Barnsley fans and you have had the chance to clear up the story.}


19 Jan 2012 22:25:16
Sunderland after Bojan Krkic on loan from AS Roma(8)(21)Ive got a good one aswell, What do you call a women with a piece of slate on here head?......Ruth.Barca have to agree to any deal as have buy back optionHe has score 8 goals in 14 games already in the league his season,so why would they loan him out.can`t see it happening.


19 Jan 2012 21:52:07
Defoe nzonzi cahill and baines all to stoke before 31st jan(14)(39)Haha baines? Your going to need to pay at least 30 mill for him by far the best left back in the premProb cost 50m+ stoke havnt got that moneyMaybe the best but everton are skint so bid of 8,10 mil and thats a fact get over it plus the fact that stoke got a billionaire who actually love the club he owns its a fact {Ed001's Note - I really can't see why you think Baines will be allowed to move for that little. He is as close to irreplaceable a player as Everton have. No way they will let him go for that.}Baines to stoke .....nuts !!Not a chanceOd dear me Stoke fans again living in cloud cuckoo land, nearly as bad as the Newcastle supportersSeriously, I know that this is not a place to swap personal details but "8,10 mil and thats a fact"? I think we should get in touch and wager a LARGE amount of money on this. I'd also be happy to throw in a beginner's lesson in punctuation if you want?Typical deluded Potters fans ha ha haThink you should look up the meaning of the word fact before you use it again in the future.


19 Jan 2012 21:44:28

former league 1 winner oli johnson turns number of clubs down to sign for promotion chasing oxford(10)(8)Oli Johnson is a quality league one player with real talent and skill, he should be playing for a ambitious league one club.

Gary Taylor-Flecher and Bruma will be loaned to preston from arch rivals Blackpool. Both are excellent players, however both need need to improve their fitness with longer training sessions.

19 Jan 2012 21:29:06
Madrid has elections next year, so it means big movements in market, they need midfielders and right back(+ van persie that already signed).

-Walker from tottenham
-hazard, already said yes, it depends if silva is coming
Bale is not going to barcelona, too expensive, probably they will sign jordi alba , cheaper and already in national team
-Florentino Perez refused 25 m from kaka (Paris SG), but definitely he is leaving.(8)(28)Didnt know van persie had singed for madrid haha clueless fool, make something believable next time!Khedira, Ozel, Kaka, Granero, Sahin, Alonso, Di Maria, Diarra, Callejon, Canales, Drenthe, Gago, Leon all play midfield as can Altimtop, Pepe & Ramos.

Jordan Rhodes will sign for Sunderland for a fee which could rise to 8m including add on's(18)(10)Southampton will secure his signing in the next weekThis Saints fan hopes he stays with Huddersfield and you 2 remind me of vultures.Sunderland won't take another chance at signing another big money youngster as Connor Wickham has failed to step up and Huddersfield have put a 7 million pound price tag on Rhodes so i very much doubt he will be going to the stadium of light!Conner Wickham has been injured. The games he has played have been great. I can see SAFC being in the market for younger playersHuddersfield haven't put a 7 million price tag on his head they have catagorically said that he isn't for sale at any price. Not so difficult to understand is it?Why would he select southampton over sunderland? sunderland are a far bigger club than the championship sideSoutampton fans said they would sign Maynard they didnt then Sharp again didnt so I would just ignore all the rumours they post.Jordan Rhodes is the hottest striker outside the prem, why would he want to go to Sunderland? and the Terriers chairman has categorically stated he is not for sale!Jordan rhodes would play in any premier league team that offered him. he would do good up in sunderland. haters


19 Jan 2012 19:04:47
Blackburn's Chris Samba spotted in W12 (West London) possibly discussing terms with QPR!
Henrique is expected to begin training midway through next week; work permit allowing, Beckham has signed a new 2 year contract at LA Galaxy and is NOT looking to get a loan to a European club during the MLS off-season.(21)(16)With all the defenders Hughes looking at Samba may not get a gameIm afraid samba will definatly start every game. 'all the defenders Hughes looking at' samba is far better than ounaha, alex, a.ferdinand or hall.If Samba has any ambition he will not jump one sinking ship to another!? Tony Fernandes is a joke, not a football man, will just chuck money at the 'big names' Expect to see Samba in London @ either Spurs or ArsenalAs much as I'd love this to be true, it's not. If we manage to get Samba, it'll be on deadline day, hence we're in for Onouha and Alex. A back line of Taiwo, Alex, Samba and Onouha, with Anton as backup would be a beast of a defence. If Carling made QPR squads, eh?


19 Jan 2012 19:03:13

19 Jan 2012 19:01:31
Heard a few rumours that we may be offloading jason roberts permanent hope so free up some wages
anybody any info on this(14)(4)2 scottish clubs interested...asI believe he will be a blackburn player still at least this season but i cant see him going anywhere this window even tho they dnt play him he can still score for us in my opinion if i did play i know he's getting older but he is still a clever player


19 Jan 2012 18:37:31
BREAKING NEWS...SFC have now joined NCFC in the race to sign the pompey keeper Hendersson......Other teams are now alerted to the fact that the pompey players are avaliable on the cheap.....(11)(15)All there players are cheap !If Castle are in for another keeper, then looks like Krul will be off in the Summer.


19 Jan 2012 18:16:51
heard a bit of noise that Roy Keane could come in to replace MM for the rest of the season and will keep the job if we stay up. Probably scare the players into performing each week(19)(19)If he does, then plan for Championship football - he's cackDon,t want that man anywhere near the club i have supported forty years give mm
the money and we will stay up
p.s think we will anywayWhy replace MM with Roy Keane?
No sense in that as MM is a better manager.Anyone listening to him commentating last night could just be looking too far into the fact that he said he'd watched the first match at St Andrews twice. Mentioned he was doing some homework.You,ll definately be championship fodder if this turns out to be true,Paul ince would be a better choiceThick mick is not a better manager he is the worst manager wolves have ever hadThe worst manager wolves av had ???? Graham turner,Graham Taylor,mark McGee,Colin lee,glen hoddle,there's a few who couldn't achieve wat micks done fair enough he might not be able to take us to the next level but give credit where credits due ..... Well done mickRoy Keane...excellent player, terrible manager, only did anything with Sunderland because he had millions to spend. Mick is a proper manager who will keep Wolves up and gradually make them better, I'd be careful what you wish for, remember the Charlton fans slagging off Curbishley on Talksport..?Roy Keane will be lucky to get another job after he almost took us down with loads of money to spend.He was the best manager ipswich ever had lol otbc


19 Jan 2012 18:13:09
celtic are to counter-act blackburns and qpr's bids for fulham striker andrew johnson, this is a result of hooper looking to finalise a deal with southampton.

QPR are not looking to sign AJ as he's pony. He'll score a hat-ful in that league though as all Premiership flops do.

Hooper will not finalise a move to southampton because they havent had an offer accepted

QPR would know about premiership flops, they have a team full of them. Just look at their league position!

That you know of

I agree, but they'd probably still piss that league.

Hooper will not be going to Southampton
He is NOT FOR SALE, how many times has the Celtic board said this, only silly money will be able to buy him, and he wont go to a substandard crap football club that wont give him european football, or win anything

that's what we said about chamberlin :)(15)(23)Hooper not for sale you say, except if we offer the right money,work that out!!!!!True mate hooper will not go to saints,you have nothing to give the guy ,im a villa fan ,celtic or saints no comparison end of.Wake up ur cornflakes are getting soggyWhat would a villa fan know??Why on earth would Gary Hooper want to join Southampton ? ok they might get promoted to the premiership for a season , but he will never win anything , he is at one of the biggest clubs in Europe , he plays in Europe every season , is in with a chance of winning trophies every season , and plays in front of huge crowds every 2nd week , more than 90% of premiership clubs .Write off QPR at your peril. Man Utd, City and the Arse scraped wins against them. The only team to resoundingly beat them were Spurs and even the second half of that was far from a walkover. Only someone who watches highlights on MOTD would make those kind of comments. Frankly, the Prem is crap this year apart from City and Spurs. The relegation zone is far from assured... as is the top end of things. Look at the points difference and be chastened fools!Good Idea for Celtic - he's better than Championship fodder like QPR and Blackburn - having said that it'll be a couple of million.Celtic definately ARENT one of the biggest clubs in europe... you are barely the biggest club in scotlandSaints fan here who doesnt believe Hooper will sign for us - even though id love him to come here.
However, no way are Celtic one of the biggest clubs in europe - Scotland maybe but not europe.
And Before anyone says anything i DONT believe Saints are a big club either.This is coming from a celtic fan if southampton want him so bad let them have him there gona have to pay alot more than waht we did and that means we can get better! it would be a shame to lose such a player but were celtic were not a 1 man team!!Celtic, a big club... Come on. Big support but with little else to offer in such a weak league, who else is there to support. The Championship is a far tougher league and the Prem is the best league in the world. Southampton are one of the richest clubs in the world with massive ambition..Southampton one of the richest clubs in the world????

what planet are you guys on? really...i've never heard so much p;sh being spouted in all my life since this transfer window openedSaints owners are the 6th richest in football but that dose'nt mean the club is rich!!!Celtic really are one of the biggest SUPPORTED teams in in the world. Compared to Man U, Barca, Milan, Bayern Munich ect they are the equivilent of Dunfirmlin. Now I've nothing against the Pars but Quality they ain't. At least Southampton, West Ham or Whoever gets promoted from the Championship have a chance of attaining some credibility. Southampton may have been in L1 last season but they were in the top flight for nearly 30 years so don't bother making yourselves look like a bunch of NEDs {Ed003's Note - Can we agree to disagree,it's doing my head in now ! }Ok Ed we'll stop when you give us your opinion on the argument!

Southampton were top flight yes but never world beaters. {Ed003's Note - I think you are both very lovely teams }Oh thats right the clowns want 35 million for pooper lolCeltic are indeed one of the biggest teams in europe! they have one of the biggest support in the world! and to everyone that keeps saying celtic need money look at the list of 100 richest people in football, 3 of them are shareholders in celtic! so no, we dont need money! ed what do you think the chances of hooper moving is? {Ed001's Note - from what I can gather, Hooper is not looking for a move and will not force one. Celtic are not looking to sell and would prefer to keep hold of him, they see him as integral to their title hopes. But, if Southampton match their valuation they will sell him and he would join Southampton to work with Adkins again. My personal opinion is that Southampton will not be willing to meet the asking price and he will stay. But I wouldn't bet my mortgage on it either way, because I don't know just how badly Adkins wants to sign him or how much the club will allow him to spend.}Is their any glue left in southampton. Stop sniffing it all southampton fans, your teams needs you to turn up to your wee shed and support the promotion push."Write off QPR at your peril. Man Utd, City and the Arse scraped wins against them. The only team to resoundingly beat them were Spurs ".....................................................errr no! Fulham whoopped them 6-0

Puncheon will not be going to Millwall as he wants too much money - according to a friend who is also represented by Tony Finegan (his agent) - Kenny Jackett has a strict wage structure that he won't go above, same reason why Danny Haynes signed for Charlton and not Millwall

Danny haynes went to charlton because millwall only wanted him on loan which barnsley didnt want. only reason.(8)(6)All clubs have a wage structure its not news!

Haynes was out of favour at his club and rather than wait for a bid that might come at end of season from Millwall they went for the money on the table. Haynes could have said no to Charlton which would then have forced his clubs hand, he would have gone to Millwall to get him off the wage bill. He chose Charlton, no one forced him!

The statement above is just too simplistic, players have much more power to dictate where they go.That and the fact it looks like Millwall and charlton will both be swapping leagues in May!

Sir Alex Ferguson is preparing to make a significant offer for Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell as the Old Trafford boss looks to bring in fresh youthful additions to his Man United squad. The Scot is said to be willing to offer around £22m for the young England international this month and will hope that having sold Irish international Darron Gibson to the Toffees that the Merseyside club may feel that they have an effective replacement for the talented midfielder.

Everton's financial constraints have left Moyes unable to bring in the strength in depth the club need in order to mount a challenge for a European qualificiation spot, therefore a good offer for Rodwell may well be considered as the funds could well help bring in three or four new additions.

Ferguson has adopted a policy of bringing in top young talent from around the world to help construct a new generation of talent and having signed the likes of Javier Hernandez, Chris Smalling, David de Gea and Phil Jones over the past two years the Man United manager has set his sights on clinching a deal to sign long term target Rodwell.

There is an increased need for Man United to bring in midfield reinforcements due to injury concerns over Darren Fletcher and Tom Cleverley. Indeed Brazilian Anderson is also just returning from time out with a knee injury and Ferguson is looking to any new additions to conform to his long term transfer policy but also have the ability to make an impact immediately.

David Moyes will be loathed to lose Rodwell but may have little choice in the matter if Everton chairman Bill Kenwright opts to cash in on one of the club's prized assets to help balance the books.(29)(18)Top young talent fromm around the world. David De Gea! those words should not be spoken in same breath lmfaoYeah, phill jones is also top young talent?
Got made to look like a mupet the other daySo ones has an amazing start to the season but one bad game makes him no longer a talent?

Everton have boosted the American contingent at Goodison Park by taking USA international striker Edson Buddle on trial.

Buddle is the third from his country to be on the books at the Toffees, joining Tim Howard and Landon Donovan, who is currently on loan from LA Galaxy.

The other connection the trio share is that they all share the same agent.

"For those asking, my client Edson Buddle will be on trial this week at Everton FC," confirmed Richard Motzkin, managing executive of Wasserman Media Group Global Football Group.

Buddle has been playing his football for FC Ingolstadt in the 2. Bundesliga, but their winter break means he can commit to Everton for the trial.

The striker has 6 goals in 19 league appearances this season, as well as 2 in 7 international caps.

Rem you heard it 1st!!(11)(4)No mate, I heard it on the everton rumours site, 1 week ago.And its already been on sky sports news and the liverpool echoAnd to be fair..... I READ it 1st, about a week ago.You would think that someone who 'heard it first', would know everton already have three American's at the club making Buddle the forth. or does Marcus Hanemann not count? what a muppet.

Stoke City are looking to sign Matt Phillips from Championshipside Blackpool.

The former Wycombe player has been a revelation at Bloomfield Road since his £700,000 transfer in 2010 and has attracted interest from a host of Premiership sides, including Stoke.

The Potters are looking to sign a young winger to provide cover for Matthew Etherington and Jermaine Pennant and manager Tony Pulis is willing to splash the cash on Phillips.(17)(9)Phillips is better than both them so why would he want to be cover at Stoke LOLPlease Stoke fans......At least do some research before you make up stories.....700,000 transfer in 2010 ......It was 350k in 2009....and why would he want to join a team who's normal tactics are at best.... hump it forward, throw it in from the half way line and route one football.

The guy has 4 or 5 prem teams chasing him......cant see him leaving the bright lights of the North West for the cultural wasteland thats Stoke.

In other words...jog on!Its sort thing ipswich town know for. Kicking a club when they are down. Trying to pick of best players portsmouth have. Ipswich owe suffolk county council 750.000 in back rent. Maybe they should settle they debt before they try to take advantage of portsmouth olightLol..what we are known for?

As I mentioned above, I was told after the Gillingham game about the 2 Everton players that Stoke are interested in, didn't say that they would definitely sign, if they did, it may be in the Summer, but the information that I have received it from a VERY good source. Stoke have inquired about AO-C but Arsenal, are yet to make a decision whether to allow him to go on loan.

Stoke are also interested in a good, up and coming winger from a rival midlands club, trust me Stoke will have a very strong squad come the Summer.

It took a lot of words for you to not say anything!


Ok I'll make it simple.. as that seems to be the only way people understand on here.

1. Stoke will attempt to sign Tim Cahill and Leighton Baines. Might be in the Summer.

2. Stoke have enquired about taking Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain on loan. No decision made by Arsenal yet.

3. Stoke are looking Redmond from Birmingham. Pulis was watching him last night against Wolves. FACT(12)(28)Stoke are a rugby team!Surely if you put your mind to it you could make up a better rumour than this - Baines is EFC through, Tim will return to Oz after a fantastic career with the team he loves - Sorry Stoke fans some one pulling your plums.They won't sign bainsey and tim :DAny team can try to sign players. The trouble is no one of any quality wants to go to Stoke.All these players mentioned are footballers, so why would they go to Stoke?No way will Arsenal let AOC go to StokeBaines is a footballer,why would he sign for stoke?Baines is the best left back in the prem mate and this is from a liverpool fan, if kolarovs worth 17 mill baines will cost at least doubleRedmond is not going to stoke been with him all day he could not stop laughingIF, everton would sell, baines, he could have his pick of the top four, 25-30 mill. Tim may go to the US in an an exchange for donovon. knowone, with any class is ever going to go to stoke, plus the place is a st hole.Everton wouldnt get rid of leyton bainesNot tall enoughFirstly, Enrique is the best left back in the prem, Next, Redmond isn't good enough for the prem yet and If Baines can play for Everton he can play for Stoke, has anybody seen the league table lately, Stoke will finish in the top 8 again this season, will reach the semis of the FA Cup at least and qualify for european football again, STOKE AND PROUDSo much to pick up on from that last comment...."If Baines can play for Everton he can play for Stoke"...... that makes no sense, he plays for everton beacase we bought him five years ago from wigan and hes matured into a great player, he wont decide to leave to play for stoke where wide players bearly see the ball.
Secondly, "has anybody seen the league table lately" yep, i have, every team has played 21 games with 17 to go, dont get too excited when your on 1 little run.
Finally, "Stoke will finish in the top 8 again this season", when you say "again" you must mean youve finished there before? well it shows how much of a fan you are because, well, you havent even finished in the top half.For those fans bleating that Everton will not get rid of players, they are unfortunately delusional. Everton are historically a good team and should always finish in the top 8. They are currently a failrly good team with an excellant manager. Unfortunately Everton need to sell players to survive and unfortunately they will sell their best players if a decent price is offered. I agree that Baines is good and could possibly play for a better club then Stoke, however I do not believe that a top 4 club has offered decent money for the lad otherwise he would have been off, because unlike some of the other clubs in the prem, Everton DO need to sell. I feel sorry for Everton fans because they do deserve better than they are getting at the moment. Thank your lucky stars you have a decent manager because if he goes you will struggle.Thank your lucky stars you have a decent manager because if he goes you will struggle.

same with stoke.Thank your lucky stars you have a decent manager because if he goes you will struggle.

same with stoke.

You think I am a Stoke fan - Wrong!!

It has now been confirmed that the second Trialist is Kelly Youga, formally of charlton.

Only Downside for Gary Johnson is a knee injury which has kept him out of the game for a couple of seasons. Sam Wlaker has been confirmed as signing a loan deal with the glovers until the end of the season from chelsea.(10)(5)Kelly Youga has not been a Charlton player for sometime, his contract expired almost a year ago however because he was injurred he stayed with us for rehabilitation. Very good full back, likes to play football not hoofball. Many would like to see him back (at Charlton) but his wage demands are said to be high.

Hope this talk of Lucas Barrios to sunderland is true he's a pure finisher. Give him the ball in the box and 9 times out of 10 it goes in the net awesome poacher. Bit of info on him he has a goal rate of 1 in 2 games nick named the panther and is 26 years old. Currently plays in Germany and has a price tag of 6-8 mil. So I think this maby our best bet of a striker coming in and not braking the bank either, probs use the gyan loan money to buy him.(19)(12)Apparently hes just a poor mans papa cisseGet Hooper from Celtic instead!

Best is perfect backup on rotation for ba and cisse, if you have nothing intelligent to say then dont say anything at all!!Seems to have a lot of credibility to me, what with the impending exit of Coloccini to Spain and Taylor's injury woes, Cisse and Ba first choice with Lovenkrands and the 2 Ameobi's as squad players, looks a great bit of business for a second rate forward.This could be true, as Newcastle have ba and cisse plus a lot of other strikers and are in need of a defenderColo aint going to Spain. already said he will wait until the end of the season before signing a new deal. Next rumour.

This is a sign that spurs are to step up their bid for tim kruel with a 8m bid(10)(12)Take more than 8 mill to get krulNo its not Muppet. Krul is no 1 and will be for sometime to come. We have a young keeper out of contract and do you think Harper wants to see his last days out on the bench.Why would hendo want to leave pompey when playing first team football in the championship to play second team in the prem? he aint going anywhere PUP

The Hooper to Southampton deal is very much ON ! 7 million plus Jason Puncheon, who I believe is a winger, is thought to be enough to satisfy the Celtic board. And 1 more thing
As a Newcastle fan, I find it really annoying and irritating that Celtic fans keep referring to a "£35m price tag" on Gary Hooper purely because he outscored Carroll in the 1 season they were both in the championship ! The fact of the matter is that Carroll was sold for £35million because he scored 11 PREMIER LEAGUE GOALS in 19 games before the transfer to Liverpool in January, and yet not 1 manager saw Hooper worth taking into the premier league at that time funny that ! I don't think 20 managers can be wrong ! So Carroll showed he was capable of scoring against the best Hooper has shown he is capable of scoring against Inverness.
And one more thing for the ongoing debate, no way are Celtic a good enough team to be top of the championship which is where Southampton find themselves now, so Celtic are the bigger team understandably, due to the fact that a whole country is divided between 2 teams in a tin-pot league, where as English people are divided between dozens ! but Southampton are certainly the better team.

End of saga ... lets move on !(26)(30)Reply to above.
Go buy a brain,Carrol has been a total flop ,Hooper has scored against good European teams,so go and pull your head out your aEr, shut up.. hooper is a class striker you muppet, he is quite clearly better than carroll considering carroll has done jack all at liverpool, hence why they want to sell him, hooper would walk into premier league teams, and celtic are easily good enough to be at level southampton are, if not higher!What a clown!I dont think ur a Newcastle fan hooper is a better player than carrol no doubt to score 40 odd goals in 2 seasons in the championship is gd carrol is a donkey and Celtic would win the championship by at least 15 points that's the endFinally someone talking sense ...End of saga moved i am just starting here.
southampton better than celtic your're having a laugh not a chance in earth is that statement anywhere near true. and btw obviously managers can be wrong...liverpool were wrong to touch carroll...fact.
neil lennon made a joke about him being worth 35mil get over it.
although if hooper went to prem right now...he would score more in half a season than carroll has scored in the last calender year.

and btw...I am a rangers supporter bite on thatWell said mateNo way are you a rangers fan, you wouldnt let this irritate you if you were. Poor old celtic fan. Still hasnt accepted that SPL is the joke of european leagues. People have more interest in most other european leagues than they do the SPL, why? Because its full of sht teams, and only has 2 worthy enough to call themselves championship level. If anything, stop whining and consider yourself lucky they let crp like you into the European competitionsHi i'm a saints fan and find it highly amusing how fans from all over the country bicker like a bunch of school kids about how bigger and better their club is , and how their best player is to good for any other team. Does it really matter who slags off who about how better they are and how much bigger they are at the end of the day if a club wants a player and they offer enough money they are going to get that player,So if your going to slag anyone off slag your own board off for letting it happen in the first place.I would have taken this post a bit more serious if it had come from any of the BIG teams in Engalnd, but Newcastle?? come on.
This is the same bunch of fans that were lookingbthier owner and manager out not too long ago..... Newcastle are also rans, always have been always WILL be!!
Andy Carroll is rubish a plain and simple fact, the ONLY reason Liverpool paid 35m is the money generated form TV revenue and the sale of Torres... Newcastle are a smaller club than Celtic. FACT.Saints fan here: No way will Southampton spend that much on one player. Hooper is no doubt a good player, but we won't buy him at that price. We won't smash our record transfer fee not while we are still in the Championship. If we go up and Hooper is available, this figure might be more realisticIf celtic or rangers got half the money yous lot get from tv money we would run a mock in england your pathetic association can see that and thats why they are refusing us entry because they dont want a scottish team winning the english premier. We both have a far bigger fan base than almost every team in england and also have well bigger stadiums so dont come on here and say about tin pot league when its your fa whos scared to let us in your pishy leagueI think hes spot on celtic would even finish in the play offs and as for andy carroll liverpool dont play the right system to get the best out of caroll hooper is a pretty good player but not prem class unfortunatlyFinally some1 knows what their talking boutThe Championship has become a much more competitive league than the SPL simply down to the tv money involved. Celtic are undoubtedly the bigger club in terms of history and support but that counts for nothing nowadays- its is all about the money and he will move if the money is right for celticAw definitely mate, I mean Carroll's scored.......... aw wait.... Well, still, there's his brilliant hold up play which......... aw wait.... Ah who cares, Dalglish must value him with all the games he's starting.......... aw wait........... Carroll is a dud. He's moved onto the next level above Newcastle, to a team which themselves are struggle to compete for even a European place.
That 35m fee has yielded 4 league goals, thats 8.75m per goal.
Hooper's fee of 2m has yielded 32 league goals, that's 60,000 a goal. Do the math mate.Pishy league grow up pal you sound like a desperate man if its that pishy why harp on about joining it the spl is a joke wake up and smell the coffee you will never join and will continue to flounder in a go nowhere League which will result in a co efficent for europe thats apar with finlandThe main reason the Old Firm won't be allowed into the English Premier League is the fact they're Scottish. If they wanted to play in England they'd have to work there way up, same as Swansea have, and Cardiff, to a lesser extent.Personally I think hooper is a very average player, plying his trade in a poor league. I'm a Norwich fan but have lived in Edinburgh for 4 years and have seen slot of Scottish "football" and I have to say the competition to Celtic and rangers is dismall!I honestly dont think Southampton are a better team than Celtic. If you look at every position I think Celtic are better. Yer, the Scottish league isnt that standard than down south. But 2 wrap it up Celtic are a better team, a far bigger club in a week league. Or a weaker league than other.We will never get him. We have like 4 million let alone 7. Just because you supports the club doesnt mean you have to make up rubbish to get yourself excited.Celtic and Rangers would be mid-table championship teams, Fact! Look at Birmingham, a championship side outdoing Celtic in the Europa League by 4 points!35m for Carroll, that is a true crime!No matter how big and huge Septic are they play in a stty little league against nobodies. Thats a fact and it aint going to change any time soon so get used to it.Think you should have a wee look at our record against your so called "best league in the world "before you make any comparisonsIs the english premiership not a tin pot league it is dominated by man united take away skye money and the league would collapseCarrol not playing in the right system lol Heard it all now!!....his aim is too score goals and unless someone is moving them goal post lol....just admit it he is a donkey and could not hit a cow in the arse with a banjo,
Hooper is a finisher and got far more presence in a penalty box than Carrol will ever have.The fact that this is more believeable than unbelieveable to the majority of the public shows how deluded you Celtic fans are about your club ... greater numbers doesn't mean greater footballers!Oh it was a joke by neil lennon was it?! cus the rest of Celtic seems to take it for gospel and literally believe that he is GENUINELY worth "35 million"!!!Give carroll a chance hes been over shone by his stupid strike partner suarez and he hasnt had the right ball in to him also it shows that he had intrest in him to be bought for 35 million that should be a good thing THJERE WAS INTREST IN HIM LOOK HOW MUCH HES COME ON GIVE HIM A CHANCEDont rise to muppets like this bhoys, if the Celtic team is so poor how come newcastle want to buy half of them?

Celtics and Rangers records in Europe over the last decade speaks for itself. There is no defending the standard of the SPL but if you were to speak to the coaching staff of Udinese, Athletico Madrid or Rennes they would tell you that Hooper is a class act.

Who were in Birmingham's group by the way? We had top teams from Italy, Spain and France in ours and still were pretty damn close to qualifying.

Lennon was clearly joking when he said 35 million for Hooper, if you listened to the interview rather than the quotes in the tabloids you would know that.

I feel sorry for Carrol, he is not suited to a team like Liverpool. If he played for the likes of Stoke he would be immense.

MacOne of Southamptons best players (Hooiveld) was a total outcast at Celtic because he was absolute garbage yet in the Championship he looks a player. The Championship is well and truly overhyped ...... Put simply your laugue is nowhere near as good as you thinkTypical england based mentality....just bcoz someones daft enough to pay 35m for a dumplin does not mean he's worth 35million......celtic are in the top 5 biggest teams on the planet. your over hyped league is bankrolled by mr murdoch and if he spits the dummy and goes home with his ball your in real danger of becoming a,,,, how did you put it a tin pot league. your old boy carroll looks a real player eh! numptys like you give retrospective football fans a bad name.....stick to cicket and morris dancin son and leave the football to real fans ...hail hailThe reason newcastle are trying to buy celtic players is theyre cheap and are only good enough in emergencys ie injurys scott brown would only warm the bench and then MAYBEIt might be a poor league but celtic and rangers have got to a european final in the last 10 years many teams down south can say that and they get 60 mil a year off sky old firm are lucky 5 mil pull out and your league will be just as poor as oursTo the poster above he is now playing in a better team. Garbage breeds garbageHooper has also scored against Udinese and Rennes this season. FC Braga last season.

12 members of the Celtic squad are attracting real interest from Premiership teams, how many championship teams can say that?All i can say is LOL! Any scots that seriously think they would win the PL...if u were in our league u would get into uefa cup let alone PL title or Champions enjoy ur 'PISHY' SPL worst leauge in europeKnew it wouldnt be long before we got to a european final etc etc you havent mentioned 60 and 50 k crowds yet well remember your history cos it wont happen again for a very very long time in fact if you get through 3rd qualifying round ill be surprisedThe SPL is of poor quality as they dont have millions pumped into the league by Sky unlike the EPL and Championship. the reason for this as there is 5m population in scotland and 50m in engerland, a larger audience breeds higher returns! if hooper goes for even 6 million celtic have trebled their investment in a year how many people can say that in the recent financial climate? Hooper has scored goals and played well against good european teams in the tin pot europa league also!The premiership like La Liga , the Bundisliga , Serie A , Eredivisie , SPL and most of the world's leagues are dominated by 2 or 3 big clubs , i'm afraid Newcastle and Southampton don't rate in this department , Celtic are bigger than EVERY team in the Championship and 99% of Premiership Clubs and would prove it if given the chance , we held our own in the Europa League against Athletico Madrid , Udinese and Rennes who are vastly superior to Championship clubs , so i think its time you lot got over yourselves , you are not all that !Both players are crap
carrol is out of his depth in a big club like liverpool
and hooper and celtic are crap even in such a bad league
GLASGOW RANGERS CHAMPIONSNewcastle fan ..... nice one well said and up the mega rich saintsYou still fail to mention the little clubs that put u out of europe or is that a touchy subject the OF are very poor and the sooner u realise that maybe u can address the problem so stop gobbing off about your attendences etc and prove us wrong

Wolves look set to get rid of Mick McCarthy after growing doubts about his ability to move Wolves forward.

The Wolves Board acknowledge that there are limited funds for any manager to spend but believe that MM has not spent wisely, nor can he motivate the players.

Peter Reid as be touted as an interim replacement, if Wolves sack MM now. Reid will be asked to takeover until the end of the season.

Either way, a summer replacement is likely, with Warnock, O'Leary and Bruce the shortlist contenders(23)(25)Hmm, this is either a Baggies wind up or a Wolves fan who knows little about Peter Reid's prowess as manager. Sack McCarthy and employ Reid should bring you a step closer to the drop.Is that wishfull thinking on your part or fact?
why sack him now with no time left to find a new manager/players?Welcome to the championshipPeter reid has a bad record as a manager what has he won. when liverpool won the double he was the only everton player not to attent the homecoming.Warnock/o'leary stop smoking stuff pal.
not spent wisely..please expand on steven fletcher thank youWind up sack him yes but peter reid taking the pThis person knows diddly squat bout football Peter Reid ??? Neil warnock ?? U might as well still mark McGee , glen hoddle , Graham Taylor in there to all who failed to achieve wat micks done .... Wolves fans have short memories ...Sack the useless pratt nowU can,t afford 2 sack him,u have n,t got enough money to finish your stand and morgan is being courted by the liverpool board,lean lean lean lean times ahead !

And why would he join QPR because they are still going to struggle to get out of bottom three by season end.
If he is made available no doubt more established clubs will be in for him....No they havent accepted no bids for samba steve kean sat down with samba and had a talk with him and said he's not for saleBlackburn will not sell Samba to a relegation rival, why should they?
If he goes he will go to Arsenal or Spurs..

Leeds have accepted a £2million bid from Norwich for Jonny Howson

Howson has been unhappy at Leeds for some time, especially after Leeds rejected a bid for him last summer.

The bid is a £250,000 down payment followed with a further £1.5 million in installments over 6-9 months and the rest in clauses.

Unclear how much will be reinvested in the squad(7)(6)2mil my back side...not when his contract is up in 6monthsI suspect that it is way less than 2M, this is just Newspaper talk, and yes it would not surprise me if Norwich have offered a staggered payment based on his appearances especially since he will likely not be ready to play for at least another 6 to 8 weeks.
Leeds know he is not going to resign in June so effectively if they do not accept an offer now then I think because he came through their academy they would still be entitled to compensation assessed by independent FA board assuming he is under 24 when his contract expires.
So he would still command a decent fee, the Injury will have reduced his value, since many clubs would not jump in until he had fully recovered, clearly Lambert is planning for next season.I don't understand your comment. 'Howson has been unhappy at Leeds for some time.' He is playing for and captaining the club that he grew up with and supports. And also this nonsense about Leeds not offering him enough money is just that; Howson agreed to a proposed pay rise two months ago, and simply waited until January to sign in case the club plummetted down the table and his ambitions were not met. Which is exactly what happened.

I think the matter runs deeper. The team has been chopped and changed for years, and for any captain, let alone one who is 23 years of age, that can't be easy to put up with. He's clearly had it with the way players are coming in and leaving the first team in continual succession. And I for one agree with him. The reason Leeds can't hit a barn-door at the moment is because there is no cohesion; not between the board and the fans, not between the board and the players and not between the new players and, for lack of a better word, the old. Now is the time for the existing lads to stand up and be counted, to show how badly they want to wear that white shirt, and win the fans over. They're going to need all the help they can get. So I'm not exactly sure how boycotting matches will help this. But that's just me.
wallyNcfc loves jonny howson, we get your best players oh we love leeds. snodgrass to come next week. also lucciano becchio

Darren Mackie NOT to be offered New Contract from Aberdeen(13)(4)


19 Jan 2012 11:20:38
Sky Sports understands Southampton are readying a new bid for Celtic striker Gary Hooper.

Southampton have made Hooper their top target in this month's transfer window as they look to bring in a new striker.

Saints boss Nigel Adkins is a huge admirer of the forward having worked with him at Scunthorpe and is keen to be reunited at St Mary's.

Celtic have already rejected a couple of offers from Saints for Hooper, who has scored 16 goals this season, as Neil Lennon looks to keep hold of the 23-year-old.

Lennon is reluctant to lose his star striker as they fight for the SPL title and has claimed it would take silly money to make him part with Hooper.

Southampton are thought to have had offers £4million and £6million rejected by Celtic, but they are now ready to come back with an improved bid to try and persuade the Bhoys to do business.

Off of SSN, looks like its going to happen sooner rather than later.(12)(18)Bids of 6-7m wont even get the time of day at Celtic.

Player under contract, no need to sell, no desire to sell, player not interested!

As Neil Lennon said it would have to be silly money to tempt the club to sell.

At some point Gary Hooper will move on, thats the nature of football however it wont be in this transfer window and it wont be for the prices being mentioned.

Nigel Adkins obviously knows Hooper is a top striker and is trying to get in there early, and you cant blame him for trying.

Simple fact however is there is no chance!Why would this suggest it's GOING TO HAPPEN?

because they've made 2 insulting bids so far, doesnt mean that celtic will finally say, 'oh, we better just sell him, cos they keep bidding for him' does it?

the truth is, southamptons offer is derisory and has been laughed out the door. he will not be going anywhere until an offer is made that matches celtic's valuation of him, regardless of how many times they keep coming in for him.

it's like bidding 5m for messi, then 6m, then think barca would just be so fed up cos a team keeps bidding for him that they say, yeh ok, have him

clown!Leave it alone now fellow saints fans please it's getting boring. There is nothing on ssn. We will have to do the best we can with the players we have don't forget we have chaplow, Dickson & Ricky to come back from injury & suspension yet. COYR

Arsenal have a deal agreed in principle to sign Aly Cissokho on loan, with a view to a permanent summer move.Wayne Bridge is a very poor defender, a decent left-sided midfielder. Look elsewhere for a solid defender.Lol arsenal are no competing with the likes of bolton and blackburn for player lmfaoAbidal just signed new deal with barca

So Wolves are apparently going to make an offer for St Mirren's Kenny McLean. Exactly how many midfielders does the genius otherwise known as McCarthy want in his squad I wonder. We're already overloaded with underperforming midfielders and deperatley need strengthening in both attack and defence yet he still sems obsessed by midfield, having already signed two more during this transfer window. However good McLean may be, we can all rest assured that MM and clipboard will coach all his talent out of him within 12 months maximum so Kenny do yourself a favour and don't join Wolves although it seems MM is planning a tactical revolution by playing a 0-10-0 formation in future.(14)(5)Wolves fans are so up their own arses. I hope you do sack him, spend loads of money to reach midtable and still get relegated. Then panic and start selling players and end up in league one with the Sheffield's Charlton and Huddersfield. The man got you promoted and kept you up stop whining!Anonymous poster - which club do you 'support'? - You've not sat through about 15 good games & 60 ste games & paid a considerable amount of money for the privilege. You comment on your own club & leave wolves fans to comment on our 'magician of a manager'Its called looking o the future with mcleanInteresting - is this the general view of Wolves fans I wonder? I've always felt that what MM has achieved there is undeniably good, but then I've always felt that he is undeniably a clown at the same time! Wolves fans - if you knew you could get a decent replacement, would you change him?Best post I've read all week. Dracula is a terrible manager ha haMy God, one season in the prem and they think they're Brazil. Wolves are a kick n rush side always have been, Graham Taylor, Steve Bully Bull and Kevin Musket are all testimony to that! GO on sack him then you can go back to playing the "sleepin Ji-ant ya now."Mm could sign Barcelona fc,you,ll still go down, where you belong,championship.McLean can play off the forward,or on the left side off the midfield.Has lots off creativity and is a goal threat.So that is why he is looking at him.He has a sweet left peg,but uses both feet.The kids going to the top,and is as good as any kid at my team Rangers.With maybe the exeption off Jamie Ness.Would be happy if we signed him.I could see him going down south though.Even if it never really worked out for Leigh Gritthis,who they are trying to sell in the summer.Who is on loan at Hibs,and doing OK in his first SPL season.Dont think he was around when Livy,were there last time.Ally

Joseph Cala's takeover at portsmouth is imminent. Likely to sell star players to free up the wage bill for the mega signing of Gabriel Milito, using his contacts at Inter Milan.(3)(21)Think you mean Diego Milito... try again though.I have just been reading about this man Cala and i have to say if were a pompey fan i would be very worried. He has been trying to find funds for the last decade to build his dream underwater glass bottom Hotels and Casino's.
I mean he has already owned a club in italy called Salerno Calcio, he was there for 11 days lol, he failed to pay the debts owed by the club which he promised he would, hasnt he promised to pay the 14 million owed to the principal creditor.
I read one artical which had the following paragraph and i quote
"Cala said on Tuesday night that he has provided proof of funds worth “more than 20 million” to Andronikou and promised to pay off in full the 14 million owed to principal creditor and former owner Balram Chainrai."

I mean does not exactly fill you with confidence does it. I think Pompey fans need to understand that no proper sane buisness man is going to invest into your club, it has now been proven over and over again that your club is non profitable, your biggest downfall being Fratton park, its just not big enough, not to mention you have no training facilities of your own. If this man does take over your only hope is that the other members of his consortium have funds because from what i am reading he certainly has not.

Sorry to go on i just find this man hilarious, another interview he said the following, once again i quote,

“I am 90 per cent certain [about the deal] but I do have some reservations, mainly about the player contracts. It is my desire to close the deal as soon as possible.

“Portsmouth have eight players who earn 1.1 million a month between them. That is in a league with an average budget of 8 million a year,” he said. “Without these eight players the club is healthy, in fact it would be profitable.

“I will not come in and spend money just to prove I have it. I say to the fans, trust me, I will spend what we earn.”

This man is a joke, hope he does buy Pompey. Good luckHaHa, Milito of Inter, ...pmsl!! And i'm a Pompey fan. This Cala guy is a clown, even without dumb rumours like that!

Mick McCarthy is in the last chance saloon. Steve Morgan is said to have given MM a last chance to get a win on the board against Villa on Saturday. It is believed that anything other than 3 points on Saturday and MM will be sacked on Sunday. A club insider has stated that Steve Morgans very strong links with his hometown club Liverpool (the club he tried to buy prior to purchasing Wolves) has seen him ear mark Rafael Benitez as the man he wants to carry Wolves on to the next level. It is understood that Benitez would be reluctant to take the job, but Morgan believes he can swing a deal his way by offering a massive transfer budget for the summer if Wolves stay in the Premier League.(23)(17)After last nite i would have lord lucanThere is no chance of McCarthy getting the sack-unfortunately we are going to have to put up with this dross all the way to the ChampionshipNonsense ....Morgans pulled out of building the new steve bull stand now so no way give money for playersNo chance of Rafa Benitez going to Wolves. You might be able to tempt Neil Warnock though. He`ll be good in the ChampionshipIf only this were true

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.

Right "DNA" you mean he can't jump 25 feet in the air and actually has skill and can football

Can 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.


As I mentioned above, I was told after the Gillingham game about the 2 Everton players that Stoke are interested in, didn't say that they would definitely sign, if they did, it may be in the Summer, but the information that I have received it from a VERY good source. Stoke have inquired about AO-C but Arsenal, are yet to make a decision whether to allow him to go on loan.

Stoke are also interested in a good, up and coming winger from a rival midlands club, trust me Stoke will have a very strong squad come the Summer.(7)(6)It took a lot of words for you to not say anything!

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.


Christain rodriguez haha porto turned down a 20m bid from real Madrid.

Shows what you know mate, WBA have been in discussions with Porto for 2 weeks and his contracts up at the end of the season!(7)(10)Rodriguez has fallen out of favour at porto and as previous poster says his contract is up, porto have already stated he is available for loan!

charlton striker Yann Kermogant being linked with Celtic this morning. Daily Mail claiming he is available for £1million.(9)(11)I dont know where the 1m comes from, maybe his agent is talking but TBH I doubt it because he seems to be enjoying his football at Charlton. He came to prove a point after being hounded out of Leicester because of that penalty er…..thingy. I saw him play for ten minutes and was sure he would change our season and he has. His all-round game is fantastic, in the air, hold up, distribution and he has scored some too. His energy is good, a real box to box player, his onfield leadership and his technical ability make him arguably our most influential players.

Unless there is a get out clause in his contract and he wants to leave then I don’t see is. He left France to play in the most exciting leagues (I know tier 3 and that good by the way but we hope not to be hear long) why would he leave that to go to the quiet back water that is the SPL? What is more, to play for Neil Lemon? I know exactly what the Septic supporters will say, it is a massive club but cmon, would he really go there to play St Mirren, Kilmarnock, Dunfermline and Inverness CT? Massive games, absolutely unmissable.He aint worth 50p let alone 1 million he cost leicester a play off final wiv his fairy chipYour loss is our gain. If you cant see that he's a good player then fair enough, we can!Good player? ...maybe in league one , but Championship he's rubbish.Lets see if he finishes above Leicester next season. Becuase Leicester are storming the Championship aren't they!

Ipswich are set to offer £1.5 rising to £2 mill and captain grant leadbitter to portsmouth for Jason Pearce and joel ward!

Portsmouth will accepted this offer Unfortunatly(9)(18)Why do they have to accept this offer? Leadbitter is a clogger like Mullins and in Pearce and Ward, Pompey have to very good, young players who love the club (both local boys who came through the ranks). I realise that may count for nothing, but the manager has been told he doesn't have to sell and has said he won't sell players (those 2) that he can build a team round. PUP.

By Paul Camillin
Albion have completed the signing of Colombian international keeper David Gonzalez, on a short-term deal - with the challenge from Gus Poyet to prove himself worthy of a longer contract.
The 29-year-old former Manchester City stopper spent the first half of the season on loan at Aberdeen, playing 14 games for the SPL club.
He left the Ethihad Stadium earlier this month by mutual consent and has joined Albion until the end of the season.
Poyet told, "David is an international with an excellent pedigree, playing over 300 senior games at the top level in South America, Turkey and Scotland. He has won the league in Colombia and has been capped by the national team.
"The idea is for David to compete with Peter [Brezovan] and Casper [Ankergren] to be first choice. Peter has come in recently and done very well, and is currently number one, but it's now up to both David and Casper to put pressure on him to be first choice."
Born in Medelln, Gonzlez began his career at his hometown club Independiente Medelln. In 2006 he moved to Deportivo Cali, before moving to Turkish club aykur Rizespor, where he spent two seasons. He had a short spell with Argentinian outfit Club Atltico Huracn before signing for Manchester City in January 2010.
He spent the second half of last season on loan at Leeds United - as cover - without making a senior appearance, and spent the first half of this season north of the border.(8)(6)Would like to know how this could be unbelievable as he has signed its on sky sports and the brighton website

glasgow rangers wont be buying anyone this transfer window- words from ally mccoists mouth- wee wise rab wwr(20)(9)We wouldn't be sending john fleck out on loan if we weren't signing anyone. and the words from mccoists mouth was that he hoped to sign cellik in the next 48 hours

wrong againThats because he is getting freebies. From McCoists mouth. Watch the TVDo your homework before spouting rubbish:

Swedish winger Mervan Celik to complete switch to Rangers in next week
Jan 19 2012 Exclusive Scott McDermott

MERVAN CELIK looks certain to be a Rangers player by next week.

The Swedish winger last night revealed he could jet into Glasgow within the next few days to tie up a 7000-a-week deal with the SPL champions and become Ally McCoist’s first signing of the transfer window.

As Record Sport exclusively revealed last week, the 21-year-old has been on the Ibrox gaffer’s wanted list since leaving Swedish club GAIS as a free agent.

Just one or two details remain to be finalised and Celik said: “I’ll be in Scotland soon, hopefully this week, to sign for Rangers.”Gers may have to pay between 100,000 and 350,000 in compensation for Celik but, for a player valued at 1.5 million, it could prove to be shrewd business.

Celik is a Sweden Under-21 international and on the fringe of the full national side.

McCoist confirmed last week he’d put together a package for the wide man and, despite lucrative offers from Italy and Turkey, Gers look to have landed him.MERVAN CELIK looks certain to be a Rangers player by next week.

looks certain is not signed though is it?
