Leeds United News:

Captain Jonny Howson will sign a five-year contract this week, ending speculation of a January move to Bolton Wanderers.

Andy O'Brien will have his contract terminated, with Coventry City, Portsmouth, Watford and Sheffield United all already contemplating moves for the veteran centre-back.

Leeds United will sign Andy Keogh in January for £250,000 from Wolves. Robert Snodgrass will not be moving in the opposite direction.

Billy Paynter is set to join Brighton on a permanent basis in January, after requesting a transfer.

Leeds United are keeping tabs on Norwich striker Aaron Wilbraham and Manchester City's Luca Scapuzzi as potential loan signings in January. Scapuzzi is currently having a successful loan spell at league one club Oldham.(7)(14)Defo mate, heard that about Scapuzzi being linked with leeds, also great news Howson signing up, top player who gives 110%Well, you are certainly going to go places with that bunch....hopefully backwards.Wolves will not sell Keogh for a meagre 250,000.Hang on, I'm sorry, why would Wolves not sell Keogh. He isn't even in their SQUAD, let alone the first team picture, and lets not forget he's a Leeds boy really. Its true, he hasn't stated he definately wants a permanant switch to Elland Road, but I think his performances suggest he would very much like to earn one. That said then, 250k is a reasonable valuation, although it would be a bit of a bargain I'll admit. Agreed about Scapuzzi, he looks useful.
wallyYou can have Aaron willbraham for swap with snodgassThere'll be plenty of clubs willing to cough at least 500k for Keogh, so he won't go for 250k. And Wilbraham is as bad as Paynter.Ken Bates offers 5-year contracts??

liverpool need a striker to get the goals we need we need someone like villa or gomez(14)(24)Ricky Villa is a tad too old.With Carrol, Suarez and Bellamy on the books, i doubt very much that the owners are going to splash more cash on a strikerLol liverpool have just spend 60million on strikers i cant see them spending much more tbhIs Gomez not staying with the Adams family?I dont see that Carrol will cope at a club like liverpool

Plymouth boss Carl Fletcher is set to target a number of new faces as he prepares to turn the fortunes of the struggling League 2 side. Wolves young striker Sam Winnall will be the first to join in January after the former Hereford loanee held talks over the weekend. Winnall will join in January until the end of the season with a view to him signing a three year contract at Home Park when his deal at Molineux runs out. Brentford striker Kirk Hudson could join this week until January. Fletcher is keen on strenghthening his defence and could go in for Shrewsbury centre half Shane Cansdell-Sherriff. The former Leeds player has told Graham Turner he would like to leave Town after an arguement with a number of players and Fletcher could be set to snap up the experienced defender. Another striker interesting Fletcher is young Exeter forward Tom Nichols. The 18 year old has impressed at reserve level and was noticed by a Plymouth scout. Argyle are keen to bring in Nichols before the window on loan but it lokos like he won't join until the window with the deal expected to run until the summer. Young Southend defender Teddy Nesbitt could join on loan in the coming days as Argyle look to bolster options in defence.(4)(18)


21 Nov 2011 17:52:54
New Portsmouth manager Michael Appleton is keen on dipping his toes into water in the transfer window ahead in January. Appleton this week has made bids and even spoke to a number of players over potential moves in the new year. Jon Flanagan could soon join on loan from Liverpool after the England under 21 international held talks this week over a potential loan deal. The right full back could join this week until January then be extended until the end of the season if impresses. Former Celtic midfielder and current Swindon player Simon Ferry could make a move to the Championship side after Appleton this weekend had a undisclosed bid accepted for the 23 year old. Young Plymouth forward Jared Sims, who is only 18, is interesting a number of Championship sides but looks set to join Pompey on trial in the next week with a view to a deal in January. Bournemouth's young striker Alex Parsons has also been offered a trial with the South coast club and could join the club in the next week with a view to a transfer in January. Finally, Jason Roberts is also on Appleton's radar after Blackburn boss Steve Kean told the striker he was surplus to requirements.(7)(18)He wants fortune, and bedner! not any of those fools.No bid has been accepted for Ferry, he is important to Swindon as is Ritchie, they will not be going anywhere until the end of the season....


21 Nov 2011 17:39:29
Steve Cotterill is set to recruit in January as he has been given a decent amount of money in his warchest for his first transfer window as Nottingham Forest boss. The former Portsmouth boss is keen on dipping into rivals Derby County by landing striker Steve Davies. The striker has made 67 appearances since joining in 2008 from Tranmere and could be available for around £300,000. Another striker interesting Cotterill is Norwich forward Grant Holt. Cotterill has stated he needs a '30 goal a season' man and with him not playing regular at Norwich, a loan deal could be possible. Stoke's right sided player Ryan Shotton could join on loan in January until the summer after Cotterill had a loan bid accepted. Shotton has impressed at the Premier League side this season but manager Tony Pulis has expressed his desire in bringing in another right side player, allowing Shotton to move to The City Ground until the summer. Bournemouth defender Stephen Purches is interesting Cotterill. He tried to sign the former West Ham youngster whilst manager of Portsmouth but a deal for the defender seems close after an undisclosed fee was accepted late Saturday night. Finally, Odd Grenland midfielder Simen Brenne has recently flown to Nottingham to hold talks with Cotterill over a potential move in January after the Norwegian side accepted a £500,000 deal.(10)(15).......and finally after Santa Claus drops off these players, he'll ask a flying pig to take over for the rest of the night, as rudolph and the rest of his reindeer crew are striking because they want time and a half for working Christmas EveYou've gotta love kids!

For 'Warchest' read 'Very small bag of coins' and as for Grant Holt being a '30 goals a season' striker - dream on! He's a good, solid player, his best days are behind him, he can't get into the Norwich side, and you think he's got 30 goals a year in him? Same old Forest, always dreamingSimen Brenne? He is utter crap so I really dont want him to ForestAs Frank Clark said under AGM Nov 18th; There`s absolutely no funds available...


21 Nov 2011 17:16:09
Brighton have signed 20 year old Kazenga LuaLua on a 3 year deal. He has not played much this season because he picked up an injury after the first game(14)(5)


21 Nov 2011 17:14:05
Kenny Dalgish is set to continue spending John Henrys money, Liverpool are set to make a 18M bid for Bayer Lererkusen midfielder Lars Bender in jan. This time it might be money well spent.(8)(23)Bender is a very good player, box to box midfielder, but i don't know if he'll go to LiverpoolDalgish will soon be sacked , rubbish manager he is!They got plenty of moneyy he owns a baseball team and they earn messi wage in a month so its all goodBender loves receiving balls to his head and playing in behind the opposition in order to exploit their cracks. No messing around, bam and he is in there like a shot. No stranger to a goal mouth scramble either, usually giving his opponent a hell of a tackle, before slotting his shot in the gaping net. (please tell me someone understands what I just did, took me ages lol)Fairly gd mate made me laugh anyways lolFunny post mate. better than yoda's one claiming king kenny will be sacked.
would have though a move to spurs would appeal better. to shower with the likes of ass-ou okotto, b-ass-ong, gall-ass, pien-arse, bent-ley and not forgetting j-anus and at a push, van der fart.


21 Nov 2011 17:05:39
New Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson is set to sign a number of players on pre contracts for the January transfer window after a very busy Friday and Saturday. Pearson is keen on adding Sheffield United and Wales striker Ched Evans from League 1 side Sheffield United. Evans held talks with Pearson last Friday afternoon after City had a £1.2 million deal accepted. Pearson also held talks with Ales Mertelj. The Maribor midfielder has been invited to train with the Foxes over Christmas after he handed in a transfer request at the Slovenian club, coming days later Leicester had a bid rejected for the 24 year old. 20 year old midfielder Peter Pawlett, from Aberdeen, has also been invited for a trial around Christmas after City told the SPL side they would pay £120,000, if he was allowed to train for a week, with a view to a £350,000 deal in January if he impresses. Finally, another striker in Marko Pantelic from Greek side Olympiakos could also hold talks this week with Pearson after he had a £3 million offer accepted for the former Serbia striker.(10)(6)...and all this just a week after taking over. What happened to the Chairman saying that there are funds available in January if the manager feels he needs to add to the squad after working with the players for 6 weeks? I doubt they'd allow him to go shopping a week after he signed, he's not had time to evaluate the players he has got, let alone waste time looking for new ones. This is no rumour, it's 100% fiction.


21 Nov 2011 16:54:37
New Hull City boss Nicky Barmby has gave five targets to the board he would like to recruit in the January transfer window.
-Derby's 23 year old midfielder come right back James Bailey is interesting Barmby as the former England international looks to recruit the former Crewe player for an undisclosed fee.
-Barmby is keen on bringing in Walsall captain Andy Butler. Butler plays centre half and is keen on a move back into the Championship, where he played for Blackpool and Scunthorpe United.
-Former Chelsea youngster Danny Philliskirk is set to join on a nominal fee from League 1 side Sheffield United after Barmby had a fee accepted late Sunday night for a move in January.
-Former Scotland striker David Clarkson is in talks with Hull from Bristol City after Barmby had a £200,000 bid accepted for the former Motherwell hitman.
-Finally, Barmby is also expected to complete a deal for another striker in Plymouth's 17 year old striker Matt Lecointe. Lecointe is interesting a number of top Championship clubs but Hull are set to bag the youngster on a four year contract.(2)(11)Hope not for at least 3 of those; not exactly going to improve the side


21 Nov 2011 16:51:52
Joe Garner to be loaned out in January with several clubs including Huddersfield are interested(6)(9)


21 Nov 2011 16:11:04
Heard a rumour today that Wolves are interested in signing Leeds Winger Robert Snodgrass, Keogh plus Cash offer expected in January(18)(14)Total Rubbish!!And why is it total rubbishMight have summat to do with wolves having lack of funds and needing to offload before recruiting!


21 Nov 2011 16:03:51
Stoke are planning a move for
championship trio. Barnsley's Jacob
Butterfield and Bristol duo Nicky
Mayanard and Albert Adomah.(13)(7)Is that to prepare for next season in the championshipAdomah is a class act and would cost good money-Bristol City have said that he is not for saleWe turned down 6 million for maynard we dont have to sell i think albert is worth 5 million easy he would be good in prem not stoke though long ball football gashead pulis tactics albert would be wasted


21 Nov 2011 15:53:34
Southampton want to sign Laurent Koscielny from Arsenal in January.(5)(41)3million i have heard if jos Hoovield does not stay-Radio solentDidnt know they were that desperate.And I want to date Tulisa from the x factor. No chance.Personally I'd like Hooiveld on a permanent, if we were to take anyone from Arsenal, I'd like Kyle Bartley. Although if I'm totally honest Steven Caulker from Spurs would be my first choice.Hold on a second before we all rush to rubbish this. I think you've got every chance with tulisa, on the other hand koscielny going to the Saints is utter rubbish.Koncielny to southampton is a joke but it would be funny if it happenedTulisa would be a better option for Saints, join up with all the other girlies who play there.Those girlies are top of the league and keep murdering everyone they playAs a saints fan, hooiveld over koscilieny any day. just watch the carling cup...


21 Nov 2011 14:59:53
Liverpool want the highly rated Dutch Midfielder Arjen Robben from Bayern Munich in January(8)(47)PAH! One win and they are going to be buying anyone and everyone. Delusion is setting in......again.Yeeeaahhh but we beat Chelsea 2-1 away, we are the best :DGet a grip fella, robben wouldn't want to sign for liverpool, and as for the chelsea game they are poor at the min and most clubs would want to play te them at the momentYe I sure u the best and for that one win u get ??? O ye 3 points that all it is it not won you anything , and I not being funny people are free to put as they like on hear, but I do feel that there some people out there that love the game , and more than anything no what they are talking about , so let me ask u this why would robben leave bayern?? And more than that if he did why would he go to Liverpool ?? He would be leaving a champions league side to play for one that will struggle to be playing in europa league , I ask u do u really believe this would happen ??If pool are the best, then why did they get hammered 4-0 by spurs? and to say robben is highly-rated is an understatementHes got a point robben dosnt play for bayern they play 433 with gomez ribery an muller up front he always starts on the bench and as for the 4-0 with spurs livpool always get battered by spurs there are bogey team each big club always has a little club they get battered by like chelsea have everton who always play well against dem liverpool are going forward when rednap just buys anyone who can kick a ball these daysBut Robben is the best player in the world, we need to sign him up :(Biggest load of turd ever!!I really don't no some times , spurs u only have to be able to kick a ball , if bale can on kick a ball what would he do if he could really play joker , Liverpool side on up u sure about that !? And that old saying people in glass house, u payed more money on players then spurs and what they bring in centre mid and striker so do u they got Parker u get Henderson and in your words he can not even kick a ball and then there is carrol let's just leave it at that !

21 Nov 2011 12:20:37
Neymar has signed Pre-contract with real madrid with a 48 million pound fee being discussed(17)(30)Only a couple of days back Perez said he was no longer pursuing Neymar after he made some favourable comments about BarcaOh, where to begin? He can't have signed a"pre-contract" unless he is going to be out of contract in the close season. Now I don't know if this is the case, but if it is then a 48 million fee will not be under discussion. If he remains under contract beyond this season then it is highly unlikely any club would commit contractually to a transfer while he could sustain a serious injury playing for his current club {Ed001's Note - actually he can sign a pre-contract at any time, with his club's permission to do so. Just like they can agree a deal to sell him many month's in advance if they like.}Actually its barcelona not realI could believe thatHasnt he just signed a new deal at santos ?A pre contract can be signed at any point as long as the club agree. Yes he has signed a new 4 year deal with santos two weeks ago but does have a getout clause in it so the club get what they want...@


21 Nov 2011 12:15:24

Any News About Adam Lallana's Future At Southampton(5)(14)Everton want him i heard 2.5mSurely if we sell i would want more then 2.5m for him at least 7m?Yeah, hes not leaving, he is the new Matt Le Tisser, Southampton Legend.Yeah,he's happy.He is VERY happy at Saints and is looking to take them back to the PL. He signed at 4.5 year contract last season and does NOT want to leave.There's no question to answer on Lallana's future, so to speakBleak, very dark days ahead for him.Any rumours from the blue few NO didnt think soWould not accept any less than twenty million he is classGood player but you will be waiting a long time for 20 mill about a third of that plus add ons is more realistic. Although it looks good at this stage for you to go up if a mid table Prem team came in for him he would be off like a shot.A lot of people seem to assume that playing for your hometown club (especialy when things are going well) means nothing to people. Yes he may go at some time, but not whilethe going is good20mil come on, good player yes but have some perspective thats the price of a David Villa or David Silva he is not in that league!

If a prem club offered 4-5m southampton would have to really consider that offer.Love how everyone knows he's happy? i bet not one of you have ever spoke to him if a club from prem come in his head would be turnedFunny how he himself he loves it there, he said in an interview he wants prem, but wants to get there with Saints. He also turned down Fulham, Spurs and wolves and signed a 4 year contract. So dont pretend like you know much more either you toolHe will never leave we are top of the league and looking likley to go , he is a saints legned and he a fan fav , he is our best player and he loves it so all other clubs can go away unless u wanna pay 20mil plus for himLiverpool 5mill iv heared


21 Nov 2011 11:54:45

Contract talks with Roy Hodgson and WBA have stalled , Roy wants to manage England.(10)(31)A good english man for the jobHes not good enogh for englandIt'll be redknapp before hodgson, he showed he couldn't handle the big jobs at liverpoolRedknapp , o'neill , Hodgson is a rubbish manager (was just lucky with Fulham)So does my nan but thats not gonna happenHodgson has had more success then not and has had no dodgy press....would not be surprised


21 Nov 2011 10:07:04
I can confirm that Bristol City
Nicky Maynard will be signing for
Leicester in January.
"It will happen"(12)(46)Just like it was going to happen before August window like all you foxes were banging on about!And Maynard has signed that contract extension at BCFC just like you lot were banging on about. No? I didn't think so. He'll be off somewhere in Jan for next to no money compared with the Summer offers. Won't be coming to LCFC in my opinion. The new management will want a 'Steve Howard Mk2' type striker.That will be the end of his rich vein of form then!Cant believe this has reappeared.Hope NOT!! dont need him.
But he WILL leave Brizzle Sty as he wont play in league 1!!Im a leicester fan but i had when people put old rumours on that have no truth to itHe will choose southampton-agentHe would be a good signing. He wants to go there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


21 Nov 2011 09:20:09
Paul Benson will join Bradford on loan till january with a view to a permanent deal of 90,000 in January. Phil Parkinson signed him at charlton. Notts County and Dagenham are also chasing him but Bradford are favourites.

BCFC Tom(8)(7)It is common knowledge that Benson is on his way that much we all know. I cant see how Bradford would be favourite of those three in a race to sign the player given the geographical disparity to his current living arrangements. At 32 this could be his last contract so it will need to be right for the player and I don’t think Charlton would pressure him into a deal. Charlton are not flush with funds but, will want to show they are acting in the right way towards the player, they know a good reputation in this respect will help them in the longer term. So unless Bradford are offering much more in wages I cant see it being them who land him.Swindon town have offered to take him on loan till Jan but dont want to pay more than 50k for a 32 year old, personally I think they should pay the 100k Charlton want he would be a good player in our team and would score loads at league 2 !I could be wrong but, I dont think the contract purchase price is the issue here. A longer term or better contract is more likely to secure his signiture than purchase price, Charlton dont want him so what the player wants is key. Peter Varney and Paolo Dicanio have a good business relationship so that might help.


21 Nov 2011 09:39:24
AC Milan want Carlos Tevez in January. Will he refuse to play for them I wonder?(33)(9)As for Tevez l got a dilemna...the guy is hard working when commited and is a good on target but my problem with him is his decipline..he doesnt like being benched and if he behaves the way he is doin΄ at city he might cause problems in our dressing room or get his butt whooped by the likes of gattusoCarlos Tevez should be here sorting his contract out but i do think the press and man city are making it look like he has done so much wrong but i can see it from his side and golden handshakes are not worth the paper its writen on...@

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...

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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)

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.

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.

Very close family friends with the club doctor at Watford football club.

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.

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....

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

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

Craig Dargo on trial at Partick Thistle.(4)(3)Top news there mate cheers. I'll tell the national papers.

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.

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.

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)

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!!

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.

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

adam johnson is on his way out of manchester city and is joining tottenham for a fee around 12m(12)(46)Cannot believe city will let a player of his
quality go .At these times of vastly
inflated transfer fees he will be a bargain
buy for somebody.PS NO PLAYER WORTH
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! With Bale and Lennon in the side!So the announcement of a new deal at City is all tosh then is it ?How much is in it for Harry?

any bristol city transfer news,(2)(13)You're playing Millwall on Sunday, the game is being televised on SS1.

Phil Neville to join Portsmouth in January. Neville is a long time friend of new manager Michael Appleton and is prepared to drop down a division to take up a playerassistant manager role.(15)(28)Nnnnnnooooooooooooooooooooo....oh god please no!!!Why would we want him? 3 reasons why not...wages, age, injuries. 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.
