Lee Millar of Aberdeen will be signing for Rangers


21 Jan 2010 22:17:46
I have it on good authority that a takeover at Manchester United will happen, the takeover will happen between now and the summer if the takeover happens expect Pep Guediola to take over he has agreed a 1 year deal at Barca but will only sign it in the summer


21 Jan 2010 22:18:54
Nigel Doughty makes his money through private equity ventures – in that he buys and sells businesses for a profit. Even if some posters on here had 'insider' knowledge then they are only relaying what he does on a daily basis, like when he sold Umbro to Adidas! Bale and kilgalon both turned town Forest, Moss unlikely but 3 more on the verge, one prem 1st teamer, 1 prem squad player and 1 corker from the championship. Raddy signed last summer, formalities have to wait for the summer. Going up!


21 Jan 2010 21:42:03
I worked in the emirates, and i am close mate with and i can tell you that arsene wengre will splash 15.5 million on edin dzeko the fee will rise to 20 million.And wengre will get MAMADOU SAKHO FOR 8.5 million.This to happen on the last day of the season

To the clown who wrote

2. Celtic fans get over yourselves. You are nothing but a bunch of nobody's who have a poor manager and about £3m to spend. Robbie Keane doesn't like Celtic, his favourite team was Liverpool, but after the way they treated him its Wolves and if he does leave White Hart Lane, that will be his likely destination. You also don't have the pulling power of a top 10 Premiership side, hence why most of your departing players leave for the Championship so Joe Cole and Michael Owen, keep dreaming! You'll lose LcGeady for £12m to Birmingham because that can but a "good" replacement ie Chris Brunt.

1/ Robbie Keane is a celtiuc fan. Check YouTube for videos of him in a variety of Glasgow bars singing with the fans before big games – he attends as many as his schedule will allow.
2/ We don't have the pulling power? We have the second largest crowd in the UK every time we play at home. We've been in Europe every season for decades.
3/ I know Aiden McGeady and he is not going to Birmingham – he's going nowhere this season.

Just because the EPL gives silly money to English clubs doesn't make it the best league in the world. That remains La Liga – where the best players play.


21 Jan 2010 21:47:19

Fulham is looking at bringing in one of two Americans, Robbie Rogers and Stuart Holden, to replace Clint Dempsey. The former is preferred for his speed, but there may be visa issues, so Holden who has a UK passport and a lot of technical skill is more likely to be brought in.


21 Jan 2010 20:33:37
The poster who has stated that Nigel Doughty has asked about liquifying his assets is correct. Unfortunately it is not for a war chest but to recoup his losses in Setanta. If this fails, he will recall some, if not all of his debt in Nottingham Forest. This could be troubling times for both Nottingham clubs!!!!



21 Jan 2010 20:43:46
Having failed to lure Charles Ademeno to The County Ground, Danny Wilson will turn his attention towards Salisbury's goal–machine Matt Tubbs.

Ademeno will sign for Brentford.


21 Jan 2010 20:53:31

21 Jan 2010 18:20:57

21 Jan 2010 18:57:00
The story about Scott Brown is 100% true! I spoke to him yesterday and he is angry with the way he has been treated. Peter Liewell wanted the story kept out the press and is equally angry that it has come out. could there be financial problems at Celtic, getting their biggest earner off the wage bill. Celtic have taken the best midfielder in Scotland and ruined him


21 Jan 2010 19:01:56
Newcastle signings this january

harewood – loan
solano a maybe


21 Jan 2010 19:15:54
All the rumours regarding Jason Scotland's proposed move to Barnsley can now be put to bed as I've just been informed he has failed to agree personal terms with the South Yorkshire outfit. It is now thought Mark Robins will go and raid Swindon Town for their 25 Year old Hit–Man Billy Paynter and Robins is also eyeing up a deal with old club Rotherham United for Midfielder Nicky Law.

In the summer Barnsley will make a bid for Adam Le Fondre, thought to be in the region of £300,000


21 Jan 2010 19:26:11
Van nist is at the brittania stadium


21 Jan 2010 19:28:51
Everton may attempt to bring in Michael Owen on loan until the end of the season. They have recently dropped 2 big earners from the wage bill in Lucas Neill and Jo. Owen may go for this as his subsitute appearances for Man United will not earn him a world cup place. This is his last chance at the world cup so he could welcome the opportunity


21 Jan 2010 19:30:33
Everton to sign Senderos and Owen on loan until the end of the season this week


21 Jan 2010 19:31:29
Just heard that Michael Owen is joining Everton on loan until the end of the season to attempt to make the world cup


21 Jan 2010 19:39:20
Liverpool looking to bring in Ruud van Nistelrooy and Mancini of Inter on loan for the rest of the season. RVN will fill in while Torres is out injured and help out with N'Gog development and Mancini to provide further attacking options. Deals to be sealed on 24th in order to be available for match vs Wolves on 26th. Liverpool are in talks with representatives of Maroune Chamakh and Milan Jovanovic with view of signing pre–contracts for arrival in the summer. Wages each player demanding in region of 70k/week which board willing to allow seeing as no transfer fee (only signing on fee, which will be no more than half market value). Chamakh interesting most clubs Arsenal, Chelsea, Seviila, Inter and Jovanovic choosing between Milan and Liverpool

21 Jan 2010 19:52:47
Is there any rumours out there that are the slightest bit true regarding the ins and outs at parkhead ?


21 Jan 2010 19:56:12
I'm just off the fone with a friend who works at the rangers fc training complex.
it has become common knowledge within those walls that boydy has agreed to sign the contract offered to him. the club are waiting to announce this closer to the end of the window in an attempt to steal some of the tabloid space that celtic fc may get if they sign more players. rangers want to spin this as if its like signing a new player cos he could have left.
the downside is that boydy would only sign until the summer and rangers offered a three year deal, this was what held boydy back from signing immediatly. so it looks like come the summer boydy is for the off.


21 Jan 2010 20:02:32
Ive never posted a rumour here before and probably won't again, I don't hear anything as a rule. I do realise that 99% of the posted rumours here are pure fantasy and, to some, what im going to post may be put into that very catagory. Make of it what you will, I havent heard it first hand, not even third hand but, all things considered, its not something I will totally dismiss, if you do that's fine, you make your own decision.
There is a little disquiet at WHL. There are thoughts that Harry Redknapp, a great manager for getting the very best out of average players and getting mediocre clubs to over acheive, may not be quite as good at getting a bigger club to the next progressive step. Performances against clubs they should have beat havent happened and its well understood that a 9–0 thrashing of Wigan means very little when the opposition was atrocious. Its considered that Spurs current squad is as good, if not better than their rivals for 4th spot but, in particular, the display against a sub standard Liverpool last night, has put things into more perspective.
There is a school of thought that there should be a discreet approach to Jose Mourinho on the basis that he would prefer to come back to London and that the two other possible suitors have too many financial and "political" issues to get in the way. Naturally, the club is also very mindful of the forthcoming court case involving Redknapp and they feel that they must tread VERY carefully in so much that A)they want to be seen to be giving their full support and B)they also do not want the club to be brought into "disrepute" should the worst happen
Well that's it, make of it what you will. Me? I don't know, Im always cynical with rumours.
We shall see.


21 Jan 2010 20:19:53
Any everton news like kanut, senderos or beckford??


21 Jan 2010 16:18:40
Kenwyne Jones is likely to sign before the end of the week or if not just after the start of next week. It is yet to be known if the it is aloan or permanent deal, but lets just hope he'll do the job until Torres is back.


21 Jan 2010 16:25:42

Leicester are trying to hijack Boro's move for Wayne Routledge in a £1.9m deal. Leicester will also offer short–term contracts to Solano and Kanu to try and raise their profile to help Mandaric sell the club to an Asian Consortium.

Martin Taylor will sign on loan with a view to a permanent move in the next 2 days and Rangers will make a bid for Matty Fryatt when Kris Boyd joins Villa next week for 5.5m.


21 Jan 2010 16:35:25

I am related to a member of the nottinghamshire county council who assures me that the plans for a new nottingham forest stadium will go ahead. The biulding of this stadium will begin next summer.


21 Jan 2010 17:06:57
LEEDS UNITED will take Newcastle United's 20 year old French striker Wesley Ngo Baheng on loan for the rest of the season.
The youngster has been in good form recently and has 5 goals from his last 4 outings for United's reserves.
With his contract due to expire at the end of the season Baheng will be looking to impress and a loan move to Leeds would suit all involved.
The former Le Harve youth player hit the headline's back in 2007 before his move to Newcastle. He was found 'lost and bemused' wandering the streets of Paris after a trial with Bolton fell though, his agent allegedly abandoning the then 17 year old.


21 Jan 2010 17:14:19
This is just to clear a few things up that I have found extreamly funny over the past few days

1 Celtic fans need to get there heads out of the sky
RVN there is no way this will ever happen why would he come to a club in scotland when there are intrested parties in the Prem

2 Robbie Keane Again celtic can't afford him wages are far to much and again intrest still in the prem

3 Owen This one really made me lol out loud as there have been people saying he was seen at parkhead at the same time as he was on the park against Man City. Again CANT AFFORD HIM celtic don't have that much money that they can buy big names

4 another 1 that i found quite funny was the frank rijkaard as manager, I know he said that he would manage celtic but he did say that he would ONLY manage celtic IF the paid his wage and it would ONLY be short term till he got a job in the prem

5 Dont be surprised if Kris Boyd does leave this window if not proberly the next same as madjid bougherra and Mendes Rangers fans do accecpt that they have no money and that there will be no new faces this window unless they are loans and don't get a game but they won't go into administration anytime soon

Right just getting that out now onto some rumours

Celtic will sign at least 2 new players and another youth
these are most likely to be a defender and a stricker these will be foreign no names as yet

Mcgeady won't be sold this window nor will Brown
but every1 else is up for sale for the right price as TM wonts a full new side as he has stated that he inherited a team for pish


21 Jan 2010 17:17:09
Celtic will sign Nigel reo coker on loan and Utaka from Portsmouth.Boyd away to Villa and Davis to Middlesboro

Rumours regarding lee barnard, southend have rejected 150,000 from southampton, and rejected a bid of 175, 000 from leeds Fact..unfortunately i think he will go, but i think southend utd, are holding out for 250,000. which isn't a lot for an inform and proven striker in division 1. whoever gets him, lee will add another dimension to your team, just look after him for us..Dazza true blue


21 Jan 2010 17:41:49
Have been sitting in a traffic cue at elland road, leeds , for what seems like ages, and have just spotted lee barnard driving in to the ground entrance.


21 Jan 2010 18:10:42
Lastest news regarding a certain Ruud Van Nistelrooy is that he arrived in London this morning to negotiate with both West Ham United and Tottenham FC. Both clubs know of the others interest and will do all they can to persuade him to sign.
In my opinion there are advantages for both. Should he move to Spurs then he would be almost definitely playing in Europe next year, whether with the Champion's league or the Europa league. However with Defoe, Crouch and Keane all at Tottenham, a starting place is definitely not secure and could find himself out of the squad all together for a few games.
It's almost the direct opposite at Upton Park. If RVN joined West Ham, he would almost definitely be in the starting 11 each week, and this would increase his chances of going to the World Cup in June. However, he may not be too keen on the current relegation scrap West Ham find themselves in.
Interesting times regarding Mr. Van Nistelrooy, I shall keep you posted!

Mr. Waddon


21 Jan 2010 15:06:10
Liverpool are not interested in Kenwyn Jones. They are trying to put pressure on Marouane Chamakh. Expect an announcement next week (depending on which club he chooses).
Will have some more interesting news next.


21 Jan 2010 15:06:29
To whoever wrote this:

21 Jan 2010 11:18:30

With Beckford on his way out at the end of the season, there is some bad news for Leeds as Robert Snodgrass is being lined up for a £1.5million move to hated local rivals Huddersfield Town. This will be announced in the yorkshire post this evening.

What an absolute load of tosh. Why would Snodgrass go to Huddersfield when he's already at a much bigger club that looks like being promoted to The Championship? I assume your a Huddersfield fan with nothing else better to do!!!

Lee Barnard to sign for £200–250k
Max Gradel still a possibility but only on a permanent basis – Leicester have ruled out a another loan deal
Billy Sharp is still on the radar but it is more likely he will be signed in the summer



21 Jan 2010 15:16:54
Haven't been on for a while as not much news on the arsenal rumour mill. Hilarious reading some figures quoted in the papers, 40 mil for Zarate and 7 mil for Smalling. Truth is Wenger is hoping to wrap up a deal over the next week for his top target Edin Dzeko. Edin was a guest along with his agent to last nights 4–2 win over Bolton. A fee will be agreed for around 15–20 mil with wages not thought to be a stumbling block. Wenger also has a gentlemens agreement in place to sign U21 defender smalling for 4mil in the summer as a long term successor to Gallas. Senderos will sign for Everton on loan for remainder of season with wilshere and sunu on the same deals to Bolton and Derby respectively.



21 Jan 2010 15:46:50
St ledger to stay at preston, pne to sign 3 players with 3 leaving deepdale


21 Jan 2010 15:51:45
Portsmouth FC News:

More news coming out of Fratton Park – the club is to sell three players immediately in order to pay the money owed to Udinese for former player Sulley Muntari.

Likely to be James, Kaboul and Diop. This fee has to be paid or else FIFA will be getting involved as well as The Premier Legaue and the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Portsmouth could end January fielding reserves/youth players in order to balance the books, all but condemning them to the drop.

The club will have until June to clear all debts, the only hope being via takeover.


21 Jan 2010 15:59:59
Celtic latest,

Young 16yr old ( bahrudin atajic ) swedish midfielder/forward has signed a 3/4 year deal with the hoops after he impressed the club with a trial.

New striker on the way. I will keep you informed when I recieve more info.

Birmingham set to offer £11+ million for aiden mcgeady.

Expect another 3 players to be in the squad within the transfer window.

Mr J O'dea


21 Jan 2010 16:05:41
My Dad works for a huge media company and has passed on this information to me:

Kris Boyd will join Aston Villa, not Middlesbrough.

Leeds United set to sign Nwankwo Kanu on loan until the end of the season.

Beckford signing for Derby County, he was seen having a pint with the biggest property developer in Derby.

Snodgrass on verge of move to Cardiff City, Peter Ridsdale has bought him a new house in Llanelli, Tony Capaldi moving in the other direction with Leeds also paying £500k.

Southampton to sign Rivaldo on 6–month deal, wages of £33, 000.

Sol Campbell set to leave Arsenal after training ground bust up with Thomas Vermaelen.

Chelsea wonderkid Daniel Sturridge set to join Portsmouth on loan.

Mark van Bommel will join Tottenham on loan until the end of the season.

Peter Crouch could potentially move to Newcastle, if they can afford his wages, Alan Smith going to Hull City.

Nani to leave Old Trafford in £5.5mil move to Valencia.


21 Jan 2010 16:14:31
Sheffield Wednesday are rumoured to be interested in midfielder Mark Kerr, 27. Owls boss Alan Irvine is known to be an admirer of the Aberdeen captain and was linked with a move for him when he was the manager at PNE.


21 Jan 2010 16:15:53
Doncaster are being linked with Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Sean McAllister.


21 Jan 2010 13:49:13

Scott Brown won't be going anywhere, not for a long time. Tony Mowbray came to the club and told Aiden McGeady and Scott Brown that he was going to build a team around them. The tabloid paper that states otherwise are totally in the wrong.

Poss 2 new players coming into the club 1 will be a forward and the other may be an attacking midfielder. It won't be Garry O'Connor, currently injured at the min. It does look like Scott McDonalds attitude at Celtic hasnt done him any favours he's been asked to lose weight and build up his pace but to no avail. He's currently stated that he doesn't need to lose weight. Australia kid has signed a deal at celtic I think he's 16 good player, fit as a fiddle. Much quicker and hailed as the new neil lennon.

The Lennoxtown Mole. "where's Dave King"


21 Jan 2010 14:06:43
Any Saints fans know anything more about Ben Steele, the guy who's trying to buy Cardiff City?

Cheers. Post here or on


21 Jan 2010 14:12:00
I'm going to try and talk some sense into some of you. Hopefully you'll listen and then these ridiculous rumours can stop.
1. Gerrard and Torres; going nowhere. Both love the club and believe that next season we can win the title. This season it still isn't out of the question, but it just seems incredibly unlikely.
2. Celtic fans get over yourselves. You are nothing but a bunch of nobody's who have a poor manager and about £3m to spend. Robbie Keane doesn't like Celtic, his favourite team was Liverpool, but after the way they treated him its Wolves and if he does leave White Hart Lane, that will be his likely destination. You also don't have the pulling power of a top 10 Premiership side, hence why most of your departing players leave for the Championship so Joe Cole and Michael Owen, keep dreaming! You'll lose LcGeady for £12m to Birmingham because that can but a "good" replacement ie Chris Brunt.
3. To rumours on todays page. Beckford to Benfica!? you must seriously be joking. He'll join Everton at best. If not expect a move from QPR. Giggs to Eastlands you must be a comedian of sorts. Giggs is like Gerrard or Carragher to Liverpool, he loves the club, loves the fans and loves the staff. Why on God's earth would he join a club in a top 4 fight for a season?
4. West Ham also need to get off their high horse. Sure you've been taken over but you aren't mega rich, you are in a relegation fight at the minute so don't expect your fantasies to come true. I do hope you take this into account because I do like the Hammers. Bentley will join Sunderland on loan, you won't sign Joe Cole. Sure he loves you but he's a money grabber, proven when he chose Chelsea who weren't big at the time rather than Liverpool where he'd agreed the contract and everything. He'll go to City, because that's where the biggest paycheck lies. By Cavenagh I'm guessing you mean Cavenaghi? He won't leave Bordeaux where he's first team and doing well for WHU. Quaresma is also wanted by a lot of big sides ie Liverpool, Villarreal and Sevilla. Not a hope will you bring in him. Benni McCarthy and Gudjonsen are real possibilities.
5. Liverpool are in debt, I'm not going to sit here and tell you a pack of lies, but they aren't as in debt as people harp on about. Tom Hicks wants to sell his stake in the club but wants £300m for 50%. DIC are in talks and want to pay £500m for the entire thing. It is likely to be accepted and the new stadium will be under way. Debt will be cleared of by £200m and a new start for Liverpool. At the minute Liverpool are forbidden to sign anyone until the deal is done, although Babel will leave for £12m to Birmingham.
6. Man Utd fans need to realise they are the most financially unsecure side in the prem. I can only think of Chester and Stockport who are worse off. Ronaldo was sold BY THE BOARD. It was never Ferguson's decision and was fuming. He will leave in the summer because They are now in talks with Real Madrid of selling Rooney for £60m. So your fairytale dreams of Aguero, Akinfeev etc. are just that; dreams.


21 Jan 2010 14:25:56
Leeds United will allow Mike Grella to join Serie A side Bari on loan for the remainder of the season should they complete the signings of Lee Barnard from Southend and Max Gradel from Leicester early next week.

QPR News

Big rumour is that Lakshamir Mittal has grown tired of Briartore and Ecclestone stalling the progress of the club, and he will buy them out within the next few months.

Mittal knows that Rangers fans are not happy with the way things are going, and so he will act to appease them.

He also wants Rangers at a new 30,000 seater stadium, and is set to talk with the council very soon. Loftus Road Stadium may soon be no more, as Mittal wants QPR to be a big club in The Premiership and in Europe.


20 Jan 2010 23:27:38
Those tricky trees should be interested in this bit of news...

I have just been for a drink with a friend of mine who works for a firm of city financial consultants that look after high net worth individuals. He was telling me that they just got a new client, a Mr Nigel Doughty of New York – a certain owner of Notts Forest.

Apparently Doughty has asked them to look at his affairs to assess the extent he can liquidify over the coming 3 to 4 months. Although my friend doesn't know why Doughty wants to do this, when he told me I wondered if he's preparing a warchest?

Good Luck to Forest anyway, proper old team that deserve to back in the prem.

Perry the Headhunter – Chelsea for CHampions.
