Real Deal


Some bad news for AFC Bournemouth Fans:

The FA is to investigate the takeover of the club by Eddie Mitchell, when he had a controlling interest in Dorchester Town (he was previously their chairman).

If any rules on club ownership have been broken, the club will be deducted all the points they have gained and will probably face relegation to the Conference.

If this happens, Eddie Howe will quit the club (although I can't see him being out of work for long!) and Brett Pitman is already being looked at by Cardiff, Ipswich, Norwich and Southampton.

The FA will make a ruling after Christmas – I won't be holding my breath, having seen what's happened to Luton, Chester and us in the past!


If wolves don't win at home against Birmingham next Sunday Mick McCathy will be sacked.
Replacements being considered are Slaven Bilic, Dave Jones, Nigel Pearson and a management team of Gerard Houlier with Darren Ferguson


Derby County are set to raid the Non League again for a player recommended to them from there own Robbie Savage. Isac Hunt is a 19 year old winger and will cost Derby an initial £50, 000 with add ons.


Wayne Rooney will be offered a new contract at United hopefully before the world cup tournament starts. I think he will accept as I can't see him going abroad.
Jack Rodwell has told Moyes he wants to stay at Everton as he is happy there. This will see off the Chelsea/United bidding war for him.
CSKA Moscow have slapped a £20m price tag on Igor Akinfeev so United will be moving on from him and going for someone else to replace VDS in the long future.
Arshavin has told Arsenal that he must spend big in January if he wants to get back in the competition for the league title. No names have been mentioned yet.
LFC will make 2 signings in January and they're John Arne Riise (Dossena going other way) and Sergio Aguero (They have first refusal on him). Aguero will partner up with Torres, Gerrard will move back in the middle and hopefully you'll see Aquilani in the starting XI after christmas.


A few old firm rumours

Caldwell is either join middlesborugh or burnley for around £400, 000 – hes out of contract in the summer.

McDonald could also be on his way to middlesborough for around £4.5M

Scott Brown – Possible move to spurs – £7M

Not sure about who is coming in yet, expect 2 centre halfs and a goal scorer.

The Boogie Man is for the off, several EPL clubs looking at him and Lloyds bank will be happy to take the £5.5M for him

Boyd will also be off, several championship clubs looking at him, hes out of contract in the summer so Lloyds will accept anything in the region of £300k for the hitman.

Rangers management team are out of contract in the next 2 months and have already to told by Martin Bain that there isn't any funds avaible to renew the deals, expect the 2 Jimmys (Calderwood & Nicol) to get the job.

There will be no major takeover for the Ibrox club, they have been on the market for 4 years, why would someone buy them now when there is even less money in the SPL and also rangers & Celtic both have the worst squads in the past 15 years.

If Celtic don't bring in 3–4 good quality players in the ext window then expect a title race involing Duntdee Utd & Hibs as well as the old firm.

Long dark nights ahead for the OF as there hold on Scottish football could be coming to an end!!!!!!!!


Hey all just thought id throw a spanner in the works for some of you.... ive heard rumblings that in fact the mascherano to barca deal is far from done– liverpool want to keep him, masch wants to stay and rafa wants to keep him– the only problem is that masch's wife isn't settled. The plan is in fact to bring in aguero whose wife is friends with masch from the argentina setup, and would solve the whole sordid problem as well as him being awesome. The problem is funds, which is why all this is under wraps until we find a buyer/investor. This is what everyone is aiming for. It may still happen that masch goes, but that is THE LAST RESORT, not a done deal as everyone seems to b saying. Safe. DUCKULA.

PS to the guy that asked. there is NO WAY torres will go anywhere for at least another 5 years, as he has said himself several times (unless we're relegated or something)


I heard a certain FRENCHIE Patrice Evra wants france to built a statue for Thierry( i love handball) henry. I think the sculptors shouldnt forget to put a ball on is his left hand. LOL.
BARCA: Will not get mascherano until summer.
ARSENAL: expect bids for GaRry Cahill 17m. DeRossi 20m. Or Noble 10m. 2 out of these.
MAN U: Rodwell 20m. Nani out to Milan or juventus or everton.
CHELSEA: Expect a bid for marek hamsik 15m.
LIVERPOOL: Juan mata 14m. Richards 10m.
R?AL MADRID: C. Adriano, sevilla. 13m. Van der vaart .with milan a possible target.
I always tell the truth. JD..


West Ham

The Intermarket Group will buy West Ham soon. Everything has been accepted, but the paperwork takes time. This will be made official soon, 3 weeks max.

They are willing to give Zola a chance and are going to give him considerable funds in January to spend.

Rennes right back Rod Fanni is expected to become the first signing in January

Negotiations with Inter about Patrick Vieira are ongoing and he is expected to sign on a free in January

Bordeaux attacker Maroune Chamack will be bought in January, Bordeaux do not want to risk losing him on a free in June

The club is also in negotiations with 2 players who can not be named at this moment of time but one of them is an versatile defender and the other one attacking midfielder/winger. The latter is a very high profile player and will cost around 10 – 15 million pounds.

See you soon

The Intermarket Group


Former Celtic Boss Wim Jansen is a shock contender to take over the Scotland Job.


Arsenal 2 sign Sakho for the left–side of central–defence the fee will b around 8–10 million and Wenger will offer Silvestre 2 PSG.

Snederos is on his way out of the club Wenger is looking at Neven Subotic, but is concerned about his asking price of 18 million, In addition, Serdar Tasci is a big favourite of Wenger but his recent contract signing will make it difficult 2 prise him away 4 anything less than 20 million.

Gary Cahill and Gregory Van Der Wiel are also on the shortlist and are rated at 20 and 10 million respectively. Finally, Cristian Zapata is also a possiblity at 15 million.


Will posters please stop it with the Glasgow Rangers rumours because they are massively inaccurate. Granted, there will be players going out BUT the good news is that come January 2010, there will be 5 offers on the table to purchase the club. At least 2 are major and have the opportunity to change scottish football for ever, theoretically making the gap between Rangers and the rest that bridge too far. Rangers will make a fresh break from the SPL without Celtic whos lack of debt is well documented. This is a smokescreen and there will be a takeover @ parkhead too. Nothing on the scale as Rangers but could result in a move to Ireland and a new PL. Thats what the club want as they maintain they are not british, so good riddance. Bring on Bray Wanderers, Derry City, Shamrock Rovers, Cork City, Shelbourne etc.


I really wish fans of Lloyds Banking Group FC aka Rangers would learn to spell "yous" ? what does that mean ? Also remember that it was your previous chairman who stated "for every £5 they (Celtic) spend we will spend £10"....what on ? debt interest ?
I know what is going on because I work for the organisation concerned and if you are relying on what is in the papers then you are UNDERESTIMATING the extent of the financial basket case that is Rangers FC. Why no buyer yet ? Simply because things are WORSE than you or your fellow deluded "fans" could believe. Anyway enjoy your sad little blue delusions and don't forget to shame a nation in Seville, after all life needs some constants.


Rangers FC news.

Walter Smith announced earlier this season that our squad was up for sale. Unfortunately many of our players will be sold in january.

Madjid Bougherra is desperate to leave the club, with Bordeaux to be his likely destination, for £4million.

Steven Davis and Kris Boyd will sign for Birmingham City. Davis will cost around £3million and Boyd will cost around £1.75million, as his contract is up at the end of the season.

Allan McGregor will also be leaving, signing for Championship side Middlesbrough, for around £3million, allowing Neil Alexander to take the no1 position in goal.

Sasa Papac is also rumoured to be closing in on a move to Romanian big spenders CFR Cluj.

Walter Smith will also move on and take over as Scotland boss when his contract runs out in January, allowing Ally McCoist to take the managerial hotspot.

Maurice Edu will also leave. The American midfielder has been left disillusioned at the Scottish Champions, after being racially abused by his own fans. His likely destination is Spain, with Osasuna and Real Zaragoza fighting it out for his signature. The fee is thought to be around £2million. Fellow American DaMarcus Beasley will also leave, joining Hull City. Rangers will allow him to leave for nothing, lowering their wage bill.

The fire sale will continue as Pedro Mendes looks odds on for a return to England, with Fulham, Birmingham and old club Portsmouth looking set to fight it out for his signature. He will cost around £2million. Portsmouth would be his favored destination, but it doesn't seem likely due to the transfer embargo Pompey are currently fighting.

Next to go will be Northern Ireland forward Kyle Lafferty, teaming up with fellow N.Irishman Martin Paterson, returning to his old club Burnley. The fee is thought to be around £2.5million, but Rangers won't see this money, as this is the money currently owed to Burnley for the original £3.5Million deal.

Kenny Miller looks set to join Middlesbrough for a £2million fee, joining up with former boss Gordon Strachan.

Finally, Crocked Andrius Velicka looks set for a return to Hearts, for around £400k.

With all the transfers, rangers will have to rely on youth and fringe players such as Alexander, Steven Smith, Fleck, Wilson, Loy and Little.


Do u think torres will go to man city. even if they offer him £350000 a game he wudn't go. even if the offer rafa 70m+ robinho he wudn't accept it.
bojan will be coming on loan as part of the deal for mascherano. they won't accept any thing less than 35m so barca will offer 35m+busquets and bojan on loan. liverpool will replace masch with diarra for 19m.

Mark Hughes has the cheek to ask Rafa to name his price for Fernando Torres after the match. Rafa told him were to go! It's thought the yanks would accept £200, 000, 000 for him.
