Doncaster Rovers have been watching Walsall and Northern Ireland under 21 striker Will Grigg, as Dean Saunders looks to add to his squad in January and Grigg being a target
Really? he signed a new deal until summer 2013 on friday soI doubt it.(4)(10)Or signing a new deal to 2013 could be a method of inflating any January fee? Just because he's signed on doesn't mean he'll stay...


20 Nov 2011 15:26:27
burnley boss eddie howe to sign WBA Midfielder George Thorne on Loan next week(12)(10)


20 Nov 2011 15:23:32
Gary Cahill will move to Man Utd in Summer 2012
will start in centre defence with Phil Jones, Vidic and Ferdinand will be sold/released/retired(14)(46)Good luck with that one.He will sign but it be transfer window Bolton want money not lose him for nothing , vidic will stay unless offer is a big one and jones will play in midfield at least for rest of season if not longer , with smaling comin back in to defence . Rio will be sold spurs most likely and evans same but don't no where he will goIf only Utd could get rid of Evans and Fletcher and even Berba they might start playing good football and challenging europe's elite agian. Too many mediocre players held together by a world class manager. Shows how good he really his but some of his players are not.Fletcher token scot never going , but sooner him stay than carrick and gibson they shocking as for berba yes he lazy but play him he will score shown this last yearWhat person would write something like that


20 Nov 2011 14:18:26
I can now confirm that QPR will not be signing any players in january as Neil Warnock is happy with his squad (up to now) there will obviously be players going such as Cerny, Perone, Buzaky, Smith and Agyemang. Lee Cook and Martin Rowlands will be released and Adel Taarabt will be going to Lazio for 18 million pounds (what a bargian)

Yours truly, pedro(3)(34)Fernandes has stated that there is money available in janurary and has even asked on twitter for any thoughts on who qpr should get !Remember that we loose 40% Adel Taarabt fee due to a clause with spursI thought that was a joke did he really go on twitter to ask who fans wanted ? I bet no one said messi lolTommy Smith won't be let go and yes signings are coming in, we have done ok so far but a defender and a forward are on Warnocks radarLee cook is Joining Leyton Orient


20 Nov 2011 14:11:10
Manchester United will make a bid for Spain international and Valencia full back Jordi Alba in January(29)(19)


20 Nov 2011 12:48:16
Palace striker Jermaine Easter is set to sign on loan for Charlton or Bristol City.(1)(21)I cant see that Charlton would take on a striker of his age and ability at this point. Charlton want to be playing in the Championship next year and may need extra fire power to get them over the line this year but, that man will also have to be of use next season too. I don’t see that Jermaine Easter fits into the hungry, angry mould as setup by Curbs and followed by Chris Powell either.

IMO this will not happen.


20 Nov 2011 12:26:36
QPR already planning for January transfer window and will drop the following from squad to make space for signings: Dyer, Perone, Tarrabt, Busaky, Puncheon. By the end of the season they plus Hall, Cerny, Ageymang, Hill, Derry, Ramage, Shittu, Ephraim, Vergan meon, Hulse, Cook, Rowlands,Vine, gabbidon and Helguson will all be out of contract and let go(5)(17)You only just got two of the players you mentioned who are apparently going in january, so this is stupidThree actually but still sounds a bit over the top granted by the looks of it Perone isn't up to the job, Puncheon hasn't really featured, the Taarabt thing is if he is sold would be a shock if Warnock doesn't keep faith in the injured Dyer and Akos can definately do a job. Derry will if he hasn't already be offered a player coach role and it's way to early to write of Gabbidon and five goal HelgusonWho are they gonna bring in then?? hey won't have a team next year


20 Nov 2011 11:10:56
Paul Sturrock will not be returning to Scotland to manage Hibs -FACT(10)(12)Nailed on certainty!Thank fu for that, there's a god in heaven after all, the guy's a failureHis illness will stop him returning as he is happy down southThats what hull said about pearson and look what happened there.


20 Nov 2011 09:20:19
fat cashley to get another wallet filler in january selling tiote to chelski for 20m when he cost the club 3.5m only 16mths ago, good bit of buisness if the money goes to buy other player, also going to get 10m per year from nike in stadium and shirt sponser by xmas, more money coming in from new shirts for presents off santa (he's the right shape)(6)(8)Dont believe everything you read in the papersNo one is buying him in january, because of the African Cup.Ashley wants his 133m back, the sponsorship money off whoever it will be will go straight into his back pocket as well as whatever transfer fees you receive, I've heard Colocini off to liverpool/arsenal 10m, tiote arsenal/chelsea 15-20m and cabaye Man Utd 10m


20 Nov 2011 02:34:02
Tomasz Radzinski has been offered a trial by league one side Walsall, the experienced Canadian striker has been without a club since being released by Belgian side Lierse in the summer(3)(10)Canadian? hes polish


20 Nov 2011 02:26:43
Wolverhampton wanderes youngster Johnny Gorman is set to join local league one Side Walsall on one month loan deals

West Bromwich albions Roman Bednar is also in talks to join the league one side ona months loan as he bids to find both fitness and form to force his way back into Roy Hodgsons plans(4)(10)Bednar has turned down loan moves to a couple of Championship sides, wanting to stay and fight for a place at WBA (Sky Sports online a week ago). So why would he go to Walsall?


19 Nov 2011 23:06:24
any donny news ed?? another poor result today, need some proper class out there... {Ed001's Note - nothing new that I have heard sorry.}(2)(4)


19 Nov 2011 23:03:38
celtic to buy jordan rohdes from huddersfield(11)(29)Keep dreaming hes going nowhere like lee clarke said 2 million wouldnt buy his socks 43 unbeaten ttidNever gonna happen. with what money are they gonna buy him..and WHY would he go there?The bhoy has a 2million pound release clause in his contract. Say bye bye :)No he doesn't! Our chairmen told the press specifically that none of our players have release clauses. And why would he want to play in a crappy league. He'll take us up scoring 30+ and very good premiership sides like Villa/Newcastle will show an interest.None of the players at Huddersfield have buy out clauses in their contracts, Lee Clark confirmed this last week, its not going to happen, he's staying put for now.Ha ha,where are they getting the money from,two bob outfit filled with rejectsJordan Rhodes is on his way to the Premier League, the SPL is now one of the worst leagues in Europe and even the Old Firm aren't a serious option for quality players any more.


19 Nov 2011 21:37:53
Any Coventry rumours knocking around?(3)(7)Your so strapped for cash your owner wants your fans to pay for them to make your substitutions.Yes - you are going down with the Donny^^^ doesnt this site ask for rumours? Everyone knows this is a fact !!


19 Nov 2011 20:38:59
Dimitar Berbatov to sign a new one year contract at Old Trafford in January. {Ed007's Note - Man Utd have an option for another year on the player anyway, there is no need for him to sign anything.}(5)(17)If I was Berbatov, I would demand a move away, Fergie isn't using him even though he has class !


19 Nov 2011 17:36:27
Heard from a friend that Leeds have watched St. Mirren's young midfielder Kenny McLean, so could be some interest there.
Andy O'Brien's move to West Ham is not back on apparently; Grayson will punish his Carlos-Tevez-esque refusal to play by letting him rot in the reserves, and good riddance to him. He will more than likely be moved on in January and so may our wage bill improve. Then Clayton should get a new contract.
wally {Ed007's Note - Burnley and Celtic are interested in McLean supposedly. I have not heard of Leeds interest.}(0)(10)


19 Nov 2011 16:17:22
stockbridge player mark ward a target for chesterfield & rotherham.(7)(2)He would be good player for us im a rotherham fan. hope the manager looks on this site


19 Nov 2011 16:16:44

19 Nov 2011 14:46:23
You shouls have gone christmas shopping. Leeds leeds leeds. Another easy 3 points. Going down. White rose white rose lol(4)(8)Wasnt easy but ill take them


19 Nov 2011 13:33:28
I suspect people are not knocking Southend's promotion chances.

However to think they'll hold onto their assets thus preventing them from bettering themselves still further is dillusional on Blues fans part.(8)(2)


19 Nov 2011 13:03:55
glen hoddle will take over the reigns at lcfc. he plans to bring in many of the young spaniards from his soccer academy this is the way leicester wont to roll after spending a fortune on dog s#;t in the summer.

game on watch this space(4)(18)How can we bring in another manager you plum? And could you ask miss to teach you to spell on mondayNot only is there no vacancy a Leicester anymore, but Hoddles Academy is for British lads who have been released by their clubs. Numpty!Hoddle is the worst manager ever been known to man from a wolves fan the only manager worse than him is thick mick mcarthyHoddle shut the Spanish academy over a year ago, he has an academy in England now and the academy was always full of English players anyway.


19 Nov 2011 10:00:54
man united will have a massive clear out and the likes of ferdinand, owen, berbatov, carrick, macheda,gibson, kuszack and diouf will all be leaving(37)(10)This rumour is un true as ferguson would never get rid on ferdinand or owen, and as for berbitov he's been offered a contractSame lod bla bla bla.. from last summer and nothing happened.. so keep dreaming mate..


19 Nov 2011 09:47:37
Grant McCann has pledged he will finish his career at Peterborough. Rumours circulating of a move away from London Road were rubbished by the Posh skipper in the local paper on friday(7)(10)He can hit a 10 pence piece with a 60 yard pass and is the best free-kick taker in the whole of England in my opinion. No one else could have scored that goal he did against Birmingham, true class. £500k for a player of that calibre your taking the mick ent ya, worth a couple of million any day. Top player.


19 Nov 2011 09:05:45
As usual I'll take each day as it comes and see what each brings.

I love my Shrimpers to bits but the manager situation to me doesn't look to clever.

Hopefully I'm proved wrong(2)(5)I'm CAFC but, have always liked the Shrimpers I hope your wrong too.


19 Nov 2011 08:40:48
I'll now stick my twopennysworth in.

I know Tara Brady has tried in vain to keep hold of Paul.

But once again it is Ron who has soured the grapes on his relationship with the pair of them and sanctioned his Exit.

Well done Ron. it should be you going.(2)(3)


19 Nov 2011 08:30:09
I have to inform Southend public that yes Luggy did say on shrimperzone he was committed to the tasknat Blues.

but what he didn't envisage was the interest in him from Hibs would increase.

it has and its come AFTER his statement on that forum.

I couldn't care less if he stays or goes as I'm neither a blues or Hibs fan but I think it is on the cards he'll be installed at Easter Road soon.(2)(5)Well you do care your talking about it on here.

He isnt going, these jokes are not funny anymore and people should be ashamed for all these fake rumours on Southend.

Suppose being top of the league brings haters. Well Come May Southed will show you lot wrong.


19 Nov 2011 08:16:14
Peterborough have agreed deals to sign West Hams Franck Nouble, Southend's Kane Ferdinand, MK midfielder Stephen Gleeson and Wolves winger Nat Mendez-Laing when the transfer window re opens.(1)(18)You say a deal's been agreed for Kane. where did you hear this?Kane wont be sold.

End of.Fergie said hd won't be busy in January pal.Certainly interested in Ferdinand and Gleeson. A deal was agreed in the summer for Mendez-Laing, however the club pulled out. ML wanted increased terms. Nouble, extremely unlikely as would break the bank and it's does not fit the MO of the club. It would be good, if true though!How they getting the money, Quantitative Easing is only performed by the Bank of England Peterborough have no license for such things.


19 Nov 2011 08:02:56
Hibernian supporter calling.

Our way Michael O'Neil is still the favourite.

But we think Caretaker Billy Brown will be given the chance to prove himself.

Just a reply to the Sturrock theories - His name has been linked in our local press but I don't think it'll be him.

But then the favourites don't always get the jobs and the less spoken about get them.

So what do I know. We'll see soon I'm Sure.(3)(4)Im in agrrement. now in the scottish press about PS. as a hibee id like to see BB given the chance to be number 1. i think hed do the bizz


19 Nov 2011 07:41:42
I'm in two minds as to what I think about the Southend stories. I suspect in the main it is not true. However I can vouch for the fact Luggy doesn't get on with Martin.(1)(3)


19 Nov 2011 07:03:54
A very despondent Southend United Supporter and I'm afraid it is ditto to what was last posted on here about the Club. I'm close friend's with a former SUFC Director of years gone by and who was part of the reported consortium who put in an offer for the Club two years ago. It appears the reason Hibernian have delayed naming their new manager till sometime after this weekend was so they could thrash out minor snags of a compensation compromise with the Blues Board for the services of Paul Sturrock. That agreement has been reached and as said before Sturrock's last game with Southend will be tuesday nights FA Cup replay. It is believed Luggy hasn't got the early assurances he was acquiring over the futures of some key players in January. And have been told Blues still need money coming in desperately and the compensation sum is hefty by all accounts. Its also well documented that he also doesn't see eye to eye with Ron Martin, the current Chairman. On Luggy's recommendation Hibs have also attempted to lure Graham Coughlan but Blues rebuffed this as they'll give him the chance to continue their promotion run on a temporary basis till end of the season . If Blues secure promotion Coughlan will be offered the position full-time. Names bandied about in the summer should Coughlan fail to seize the iniative are Peter Taylor, Dean Austin and Gary Johnson.I assume Johnson has been mentioned as he has managed other clubs fairly local to us. I notice a reply to the last SUFC posting saying someone wanted the director's identity known. Obviously this cannot be put in print but what has been said here and previously is accurate. Feeling dismayed on my part is an understatement.(6)(4)


19 Nov 2011 01:03:41
Doncaster Rovers have been watching Walsall and Northern Ireland under 21 striker Will Grigg, as Dean Saunders looks to add to his squad in January and Grigg being a target(5)(6)


18 Nov 2011 21:46:26
Apparently Barnsley have agreed to take Nile Ranger or as we call him Nil Ranger,on loan. This benefits his health as some unsavoury characters in Newcastle want a little chat with him. Your club is making a massive mistake. No first touch,no skill,no hope. The clown is nothing but bother as you will find out before he is jailed early next year for assault. You have been warned.(9)(7)Must be the loan ranger then prHe is just a name to pad out the options and give competition for places, not bothered if he never features and is only on loan until Jan 14th.


18 Nov 2011 21:18:09
Auditer at Wolves has unofficially told me that Wolves are losing a lot of cash and been advised they will need to either raise revenues or think of selling assets to keep profitable. Doyle is looking like going to newcastle for £4m (poor scoring record has reduced price) and Hunt to Qpr for 2m(7)(12)Baggie boy go back to sleep.Doyle wouldnt get near Newcastles reserve team so this is rubbishDeluded and sad baggie fan.Amazing that the baggies page on this does not have a banter column etc , yet the Wolves one does.


18 Nov 2011 19:10:18

18 Nov 2011 17:48:58
Boss Eddie Howe has swooped to strengthen the Clarets' strikeforce with the loan capture of Wolves frontman Sam Vokes.

The 22-year-old has joined Burnley on a deal running until January 15 and could make a debut against former loan club Leeds United at Turf Moor on Saturday.(12)(4)


18 Nov 2011 13:59:58
Portsmouth are set for more financial problems after Snoras bank, owned by the co-owner Usmanov was placed into administration with debt of over £200M(18)(8)Kick them out of the league if this true they have scammed everyone before with the financial irregularities at that excuse of a football club, they stayed in the premier league under false pretence on other peoples money.They managed to cheat and swindle the entire football community the last time they went to the wall....lets hope they get thier just reward this time.....bottom feeding dross...Ahhh obviously two southampton fans making comments. The people that i feel sorry for are the hard working backroom staff that could all be looking for new jobs as christmas approaches. Remember never wish ill on anyone lest it comes and bites your clubs arse!Cos Saints had loads of sympathy from pompey when we were in financial difficulty, didn't we?Saints fan here who hopes this isn't true. Whilst I was angry with the attitudes of some Pompey fans a couple of years ago, I will never forget how terrible the feeling was that my club could go out of business. I don't wish that on anyone. (not even the Skates)Saints fans if they go bust who will you have gragging rights over? I want portsmouth to stay afloat just so leeds can pick up 6 pointsWalob!! There's no knock ons for pompey at all. Clutch at straws scummers clutch at straws! Bring on the 18th to shut you up again....Usmanov? Dinlos can't even get the name right! It's antonov FFS!, 18th December can't wait to be sitting in the worst stadium in the league , signing away while saints are running riot , can't wait skates can't waitSnoras was nationalised by Lithuanian government. There was plenty of scam operation under Antonov and his associates guidance. Can't really see realtion to Portsmouth on this one, though.


18 Nov 2011 13:58:48

17 Nov 2011
Leicester to sign a few of Hull City players in january including the returns of Matty Fryatt and Jack Hobbs, also Robert Koren and Tom Cairney will sign for the foxes.

Hmmm? Really think that'll happen?
1: Leicester sign up Nigel Pearson despite being told "No" so its fair to assume a contract will be in place preventing NP signing any of our squad till at least 2012 and by then he'll be long gone,
2: Nigel Pearson leaves Hull without even saying "Goodbye" and finally,
3: Why sign for a manager who'll be sacked before Christmas?(5)(7)Hmmm really not bitter or twisted then?If there is a choice of hull on 15k or leicester on 25k whos going to turn it down, start learning pal there is no loyalty and money talksNow now, stop the bickering lads! From a neutrals point of view the first reply does have a point. You have stolen their manager despite them saying you couldnt talk to him, so do you really think that Hull are suddenly going to accept bids for all of their better players from the same club? Loyalty and wages have zero to do with it if the selling club refuses to pay.

So on that basis to have a chance, Leicester would have to pay well over the odds to sign those players in an already inflated transfer market due to the time of year. Think about it with your head and not your heart and it clearly will not happen as you have described. Ps im a Norwich fan, we did this a couple of years ago when acquiring Paul Lambert from little Colchester so im speaking from experience!We don't want Matty Fryatt back! He isn't a Championship player and he certainly isn't a Premiership one! Pearson's revised bank balance will mean that he can revise his transfer targets accordingly.If this plank knew anything about the Hull City squad, he'd know that only one of the four players mentioned would be a big loss and there's two far more important players he hasn't mentioned. Apart from the recalling of Waghorn, I doubt we'll see any movement of players from Hull to Leicester.You can take fryatt hes crap and dont think our captain will leave when he wont get played over mills and bamba + why would he sign cairney when he didnt play him at hull?Hull fans don't need to be too concerned, the manor of Pearson's departure suggests he has zero faith in the HC Squad, he did well with the resources available but, let's face it, they're not exactly frightening anyone are they? We were happy to see the back of Fryatt but we felt the loss of Hobbs for a while. Waggy will be returned at some stage but otherwise, i doubt we'll see much, if any, movement.

Leicester's owners have said they'll back NP in the transfer market once he's had time to work with the squad and assess what he has but NP isn't a chequebook manager, sure he'll have some ideas and he'll now have the funds to see those idea's through, but he's not Sven, he'll work the problem, not spend around it.

Leicester will get better now, i think most people will an ounce of common sense know this. It may not be immediate, but it'll happen. Quietly confident that we'll at least make the playoffs now.


17 Nov 2011 23:02:49
latest response re Mackail Smith and Nne.
Perhaps you should go and see your GP for a referrL as you clearly need help !(5)(6)There both not cut out for the might of soton, as lets be honest if they wanted them they would have them just like that...hope that helps brighton fans


17 Nov 2011 23:00:47
Agreed. We are let down by a small handful of 'longstanding' fans with unrealistic predictions. However, I did see a special someone in West Quay earlier today which creates further discussion....Super, super sub, super, super sub, super, super sub, superberbatov!

Norwich City bound midfielder Leon Britton has been spotted house hunting near where his parents live in the Larkman area.(5)(10)Nobody goes to Carrot Road willingly.Not the most architecturally beautiful area of Norwich to put it kindly I am sure he would have earned enough money in his career to help his parent move to a leafier area.

Who knows what might happen in the league? But i think QPR have a good enough squad for the premier league


17 Nov 2011 13:49:30
Very close family friends with the club doctor at Watford football club. The u21 centre forward marvin sordell, who seems to be the only good player on an extremely average Watford side, had been tapped up by Liverpool as a prospect for the future. No idea over the fees or technicalities, but this is true.(8)(17)There are far better players in the Watford Squad than Marvin Sordell, but you wouldn't know that.

Do you homework!!If this doctor is a friend of yours, ask him to do a brain scan.Ur talking pants mate. Whats the club doctors name then?Marvin sordell is not leaving


17 Nov 2011 10:50:35
Hibernian and Southend United have thrashed out a compensation package of £100,000 for manager Paul Sturrock. Luggy's last game in charge will be Tuesday's home FA Cup replay against Preston North End. The Southend Board have refused permission, in the short term, for Graham Coughlan to join Luggy as assistant at Easter Road, as he will be appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the season. Then a view will be taken on long-term management direction. If, Coughlan retains Southend in the promotion places and they end up in League One for 2012/13 the job is his. Play-off's or worse will see a new manager and management structure implemented.(10)(10)What Rubbish yawn yawn. Can the person who posted this reveal their sources?First of all he was going to Plymouth now this. Why would Sturrock move from a team that he is likely to get promoted than go to a second rate scottish team.
Im a Swindon fan and cant see it happenning. Sturrock knows L2 inside out and will get Southend up this season as he has the knowledge and experience of this league.Source: Former Board Member at SUFC and part of the consortium who wish to take over at the clubOk so you name your source: But in all honesty what are the chances of this happening?Pile of tripe.

Name the man of the consortium, im in good touch a with of few myself.

Go on your turn.Hi as a hibs fan i really dont want a second rate manager in the second or third league of england who wont ever be anything better to take over as manager at this time.time to get real guys this wont happen.bigger fish in the oceanI hope what the Hibs fan writes above is correct - However I'm a Southend supporter and my gut feeling is this may well be true. Sturrock doesn't see eye to eye with Chairman Ron Martin.

Barry Fry has told Southampton they will have to pay
8,400,000 for midfielder Grant McCann
Time has come for the slippers by the Fireside Barry
take off the eight and your about right
PS THEN AGAIN IT IS THE DAILY STAR(7)(10)Well,we're all well aware of the stupidty that flows out of Fry's big mouth,we've heard enough of it in the past,he's not the legend he thinks he is,poor old man.It is the daily star. But that is a quote from the old fellow, If that's the case then we'll be laughing all the way back to the south coast with the cheque still in our pocketFry allways did talk stupidWhy would Saints want McCann? He's ex-Scunthorpe hence the link with Adkins. If Adkins really wants him then i wont argue but think this is papers filling spare spaceThis is a deffo smoke screen as Atkins is after peter whittinghamBarry Fry talking up his players yet again ! he tried it with Craig Mikel Smith, Norwich told BF no thank you, overpriced ,and Brighton fell for it, while he's busy he has not exactly lit up the front line for Brighton.
Don't know much about McCann, so he can't exactly be ripping up teams, so the 8.4M is utter tosh....

James beattie. Has today started training with the blades, now lets hope he signs..(18)(5)He's still training with Bournemouth?Look on the sufc web site, or sheffield star..Blimey, there's clutching at straws and there's CLUTCHING AT STRAWS! Beattie is gash, and you hope he signs? whooo you lot must be badBeattie is clutching at straws he is a has been and i always thought was a highly overrated player. When he got his call up for England all the so called professional in the game didnt seem to think he was England material and i agree with them.
Beattie has been desperatly trying to get back with Southampton as he still has a house here but im afraid James you are past your selll by date and L1 or 2 is now your level. Lets face it he was useless in Scotland at Rangers so if you can do it there which is the equivalent of L2 what chance has he got of a championship team.Do Sheffield United need someone to man the burger bar then ?He's looking for a rest home to see out the last couple of years of his career, if Rangers let him go on a free, he must be way past his best,how he ever got capped by England is a mystery, never looked like he wanted to work for the team.

Scouting staff of Heart of Midlothian Football Club, was being spotted in Gelora Bung Karno Stadium when watching the games between Malaysia vs Cambodia and Indonesia vs Thailand. With the aims to evaluate and perhaps, to capture promising talents from South East Asia, they noted that few players seem to be good enough to plays abroad. Malaysian young midfielder is among one who already caught their interest. With the age of 17, he has accurate passing ability as well as to interfere with opponent's passes.(5)(7)Total crap the scumbos are skint its now the 2nd month in a row the players wages have not been paid on time last month 18 days late,mad vlad has already said he is not investing any more cash so where will the money from these signings come? and how can they afford to send scouts to the far east when they are skint? they have spend all there cash from season tickets and the revenue from the spurs game, they only managed to punt wallace in the summer to the forces of darkness who couldn't pay all the dosh up front but instead over 3 years


17 Nov 2011 06:23:51
Leicester to sign a few of Hull City players in january including the returns of Matty Fryatt and Jack Hobbs, also Robert Koren and Tom Cairney will sign for the foxes.(9)(24)As a Leicester fan i'd like to ask, are you on drugs?Sorry to say mate ,that will not happen ,so go spead a bit more crap some-were else ,pearson as no chance end ofYou're sorry Pearson won't sign those mentioned? I'm delighted personally, they're crap! Nick Barmby will need all the help he can get... Barmby - pfft!Bar the exception of Koren, the other 3 players aren't as good as what LCFC currently have in there team. DULL CITY!Another deluded Leicester fan, those players won't be leaving, and Pearson will end up getting sacked when his squad fail to get promotedI should add, Pearson can sign Fryatt, against West Ham he had his usual hatful of chances and failed to score, and the club can sign a goal-scorer with the compensation money from Leicester.Sense spoken by the poster referencing West Ham. Fryatt wouldn't be fit to lace the boots of Beckford or Nugent! And Hobbs is cumbersome, and gets turned easy - again watch the west ham highlights.

Pearson won't be back to hull for any players!Peason sacked after 3 months and my old freind n barmy taking city into them prem full stop

Young Leyton Orient winger George Porter has been getting lots of attention from championship clubs and will be subject to a bidding war between a few clubs with Ipswich most likely to get him.(10)(3)Matt Porter Leyton Orient Chief Executive said there has been no bids and they will reject all bidsReject all bids? Every player has his price, this is a nice statement of intent but, we all know if a good bid came in he'd be off.


16 Nov 2011 21:17:45
Fleetwood's prolific striker Jamie Vardy is attracting interest for league one and championship clubs, for his performances this season(11)(2)Clubs may be interested, but Fleetwood and Vardy would want to be paid handsomely. Possibly more than what clubs would be willing to risk.


16 Nov 2011 18:58:45
Why would Brighton (or anyone else) pay £1m for Steve Harper? Good keeper. Good servant. But his fee earning days are behind him at 38. Best NUFC can hope for is a free transfer to take him off the wage bill.(15)(7)


16 Nov 2011 18:06:06
Southampton will complete the signings of Celtic defender Jos Hooiveld on a permanent basis,
Peterborough Skipper Grant McCann for £500,000 & Doncaster Starlet Billy Sharp for around £3.5 million in January

Southern Daily Echo - Saints
The Sun - Sport
Sky Sports - Southampton
Etc.(19)(32)Grant McCann is a no go he is not for sale unless a stupid amount is offered. He has rubbished the rumour on his twitter account.Dude ! Southampton will be paying At Least 1 Million for Joos Hoiveld !Sharp has already rejected a move to Southampton, in the same way he rejected a move to Leeds, so any rumour concerning those two clubs must surely be bogus. Ipswich one could be on the cards though, tractor boys.
wallyHa Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha !!!!!!Billy Sharp £3.5m?? You may as well sign Billy Connelly!!


16 Nov 2011 16:51:31
Talks are ongoing between Tottenham and Man city for Carlos Tevez.
Spurs will also snap up Adam Johnson.(11)(37)No they want Adam Johnson has just signed a new deal at Man City until 2015.Johnson just signed a new deal at cityHmmm... I think you will find Adam Johnson is near to signing a new four year contract for City! How would Spurs buy Tevez, when City are considering holding Tevez registration card! And Harry has said "we can't afford him.. no chance"!Lol, epic fail

NazCan't you Spurs fans get in to your thick heads. TEVEZ IS MISSING HIS FAMILY WHO ARE BACK HOME IN ARGENTINA AND WILL NOT MOVE TO ENGLAND. {Ed001's Note - Tevez's family have moved to England recently.}Ed001- So Tevez is now in Argentina and his wife and Kids are in England? {Ed001's Note - no, his family have finally moved to England to be closer to him, so his pathetic excuses about being homesick and so needing an extra 50k a week to stay are now of no use.}Tottenham would be a good move for Johnson as he will get regular games and id rather have him in the England squad than Walcott and if he does go there it would improve his England chances for next year.

As for Tevez everyone should avoid him like the plague the guys an idiot.I wonder what price would be put on a transfer package given his very public bad behaviour? Harry has taken these situations on before and success has followed Mr DiCanio springs to mind. He maynot have been able to afford Tevez a year ago but now.....who knows.


16 Nov 2011 15:47:35
Southampton are looking to sign Kudus Oyenuga from Spurs on a Perminant deal in January after the 18 year old impressed on trial with the south coast club, scoring twice on his debut for the U21's
Oyenuga will be placed in the Saints development squad as a future prospect(20)(10)You can have him as a free gift. We big boys recognise the plight of the poor, small, lower league sides.As a spurs fan I'd like to apologise for ridiculous comment posted above, we've had years of mediocrity in PL & I for one appreciate our upturn even more for it, southampton have a great record of developing young players & hope he carves out a good career for himself.
Finally hope to see use back in topflight soon use have always played football the proper waySaints want to take this young lad because they can see the potential and they can develop him...Spurs youth set up is sh#te..spurs simply cannot develop players, especially with Harry "Bagpuss" Redcrapp in charge...So Kane, Carrol, Caulker and one of the best developed player King make Spurs youth setup poor does it? Idiot

I hope he does go to Saints and manages to get himself a decent careerSaints fan here, Oyenuga looks a decent player but he has had one good game in the u21 lets just see how good he is after a few more games and if any club can move him on in his career then it is Saints. As for the ONE person Spurs fan that says "we big boys fan recongnise the plight of the poor", lets not forget were your best player by a mile came from, yes Mr Bale. When the real Big boys of the Prem and Europe come for him he will go, dont get me wrong off course you are a much bigger club than us but not to sure you can call yourself one of the true Big Boys of the Premiere League. You need to be finishing top 4 consistently to do that, like Arsenal have for the last 10 years +.
Beleive it or not i surported Spurs as a kid in the days of Hoddle and Waddle etc.. but fans like him and all clubs have them including Saits really PS me offGreat! It worked again! If you go fishing there another Saint on the end of the line.You really must remember Saints, this is a banter/rumour site. Not anger management therapy for you lot.If its 'Great!' why the pompous lecture? Its called passion, something you obviously lost years ago

THIS FANS PAY THE PRICE FOR ITI bloody hope so!Hes just signed a new contractHe has just signed a long term deal at City so I very much doubt this will happenPlenty of pubs for him in LondonAs a spurs fan, this is so not true!Oh yeah, of course they are!

No thanks. PUP.


16 Nov 2011 00:17:04
Billy Sharp will remain a Doncaster player at least until end of the season. His traumatic ordeal away from the game has put some perspective on things and stability is what he needs right now. No pretend contact in the game just common sense. I would expect Ipswich and Saints to renew interest in the summer(18)(7)As a Saints fan good luck to Billy,would love to see him here,have so much respect for him for how he handled the death of his young son.We lost our little grand-daughter,we're still all broke up,it
does make you see what the important things in life are.


15 Nov 2011 21:22:59
As Burnley have told manager Eddie Howe he will have a budget of around £5m to spend there has been a lot of players linked with the Clarets. One of the players is Jake Livermore from Tottenham, Burnley are hoping to tie up a £1.5m deal with Tottenham for the young midfielder. Burnley have also been linked with big defender Sébastien Puygrenier Who is already on trial with the Clarets. Another main interest is in Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand, Burnley are hoping to tie up a deal with Chelsea for £2m for Ryan Bertrand and young goalkeeper Sam Walker.(11)(23)Dont talk so stupid!!.i have never read so much tripe in all my life!.get a grip laddy no 5m will be spent by us!1. we won't spend 5 million.
2. Bertrand will be a loan at best, livermore would not leave spurs in a million years.
3. puygrenier could be a possible thoughFrom what i've heard he hasn't got a pot to pee in?


15 Nov 2011 21:15:00
French defender Sebastien Puygrenier is hoping to earn a deal with Burnley after joining the Clarets on trial.

The Zenit St Petersburg centre-back will spend this week with the Clarets, two-and-a-half years on from a disappointing loan spell with Bolton.

The 29-year-old former Monaco man joined Zenit for £4.5million in 2008 and, although his contract does not expire until the summer, the player's agent, Michael Manuello, has claimed a release could be arranged for January.

"For him to go to England was very special," Manuello told the Lancashire Telegraph.(9)(6)

Liam trotter of millwall fc has signed a pre contract with fulham fc in a transfer agreed at 3.8m plus add ons(5)(23)U cant sign a pre contract with a club in the same countryOh dear should not have posted that! Cue Millwall are bigger than fulham posts on here!Millwall are not bigger than fulham but as a Millwall fan Trotter should stay as he still needs to improve before being tested in the premier leagueWe only got just over 2 million for Morison as much as I like Trotter cant see him going for that much, he can also be a bit of an inconsistent player at times.


15 Nov 2011 16:56:37
Ryan Bertrand not content with playing Chelsea reserves anymore and looking to secure a loan move to the Championship. The defender looks set to return to Reading with a view to a permanent move.(12)(12)Burnley are also interestedAnd thats all burnley will be..........interested!Oh please let this be trueIan Harte off to Leeds in dramatic return to old club in player/coaching role.

Nicky Barnby to take charge of Hull's game this weekend in the absence of Nigel Pearson.
Barnby to become caretaker with the view of becoming the Perminant gaffer(20)(10)His name's Barmby ffs.All I would say is remember Bryan Gunn at Norwich. Massive fans favourite, whopping win in first game and then down hill. There is no substitute for managerial experience and all the warm fuzzy feelings and fan sentiment won't make any difference. Get someone who knows the game and let them do the job of getting us upSomebody better tell Dougie Freedman he should be no good then.Said BarMby (appologies) would become caretaker manager

Southend United will make a bid for former striker Freddy Eastwood from Coventry should one of their key players leave(7)(22)Southend don't have any key players!Yet top of the league in 14 and a big gap between 4th and 8th.

Barker Grant Hall Dickinson Harris.Oh my god, you're top of the league after a few games into the season, they're all worth millions!Yet as I pointed out look at the gap between the promotion spots.

So they players are of course key.

And have been the best so far this season.

Jim Gannon returns to Stockport County - the messiah returns! He has a list of seven/eight players he wants in the January transfer market, to ensure stability in BSP ex loanees James Wallace, Stephen Husband and Matt Paterson top his list. Welcome back Jimbo, lets get County on the move!(22)(7)Are you serious? If we could get Wallace/Husband/Paterson we would certainly be pushing up the table! Come on County!Gannon's first job will be to cut the wage bill - get some passion into the players that are left and then in January add some quality (like mentioned) to the squad. The only man for the job.

The ScarfWallace and Paterson were the two best loanees last season - would love to see them back at Edgeley.
