Football Rumours Archive October 22 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Arsene has seen his 4𣛩 has made his team work wonders up the pitch, and knows he needs another great DCM to compete with Song to cover the back 4. He also has seen the positive impact Rosicky has had on the team, and will be prepared to offer a new contract if he stays fit til January. He will change very little in January apart from buying a DCM, and if Senderos leave s, another CB.
The futures of Rosicky and Gallas are yet to be solved. Eden Hazard appears to be a great replacement for Rosicky should he go. If Gallas leaves, another CB will be signed, as Silvestre will go, and Djourou, despite having great potential, is injury prone. A goalkeeper may be brought in if Almunia is seen as on the decline, with Green and Neuer top of the list. No forwards will be brought in, unless Wenger goes for a top class striker with Vela going on loan the other way.
Players being looked at:
GK: Green, Hart, Neuer, Adler
LB/RB: van der Wiel, tho we have 4 great players.
CB: Sakho, Richards, Subotic, Cahill, Upson
DCM: Matuidi, de Rossi, Cabaye, Noble, Veloso
AM: vdVaart, Ireland, Young, Hazard
STR: Chamakh, Agbonlahor, Dzeko
IDEAL: Green, Sakho, Richards, Matuidi Agbonlahor in.
Senderos, Silvestre, Almunia, Vela (loan), Gallas out
Lansbury and Hoyte promoted.


Any got any bristol city news!


Man u have won the race to sign swindon wizz kid alex henshaw.


rafa has not resigned yet because he wants to lose more games and get fired because if he is then he gets a nice 20 million from the owners and he will take over at real madrid in winter.
the owners will sell the club to the arabs for 350 million.the arabs will look to sign a high profile manager and have a list made up of mourinho, hiddink, redknapp, allardyce, bruce and maybe even a shock return to management for KING KENNY.
the arabs will give the new manger 40 million to spend in january and targets are milner, a.johnson, kenwyne jones, yoann gorcuff, henry, hamsik and adriano(free), sol campbell(free) anpuyol and pandev(pre朿ontract agreements)
outs will be Lucas(villareal 8m), dossena(napoli 7m)and voronin(hamburg 4m)


Have been told that Rafa is looking to buy that beachball as he reckons it is beeter then Babel


Tony Pulis has suprisingly expressed an interest in the vacant Middlesborough job. Apparantly he feels that he has taken Stoke as far as he can and is looking for a fresh challenge.


The Real Liverpool FC Inside News (EXCLUSIVE!!!!!)

First of all to all the fans that keep saying Gerrard and Torres will leave Liverpool this is not the case!!!!!!

The Yanks are trying to sell Liverpool and by letting the best players at the club leave they will be shooting themselves in the foot. This is because Liverpool FC selling price will reduce as all the value of players are taken into consideration when calculating the value of the club. Furthermore, the Yank(s) (Gillett and Hicks) will accept a bid in the new year or around Christmas time for half or full share of LFC, as the American banks have informed them they cannot afford to run LFC at a loss. Also this is making them look bad across the world and this will have a negative impact on them doing business elsewhere and with other people. Now let's move onto Rafa, Rafa will leave on his own accord if LFC loose the next 3 games. He will be praying that Aquilani lives up to his £20 million price tag. Also my sources have indicated the players are sick of the zonal marking and sick of Rafa's tactics which do not allow much creativity but Rafa is stubborn and he refuses to shelf the idea of zonal marking and playing attacking football as he is a defence minded coach. King Kenny will agree to help Liverpool on a short term basis, if Rafa goes, please note Rafa will leave on his own accord and will receive a small compensation package he will then blame the Yanks (ANYONE REMEMBER VALENCIA???)

King Kenny will step in on a short term basis with Thommo (Phil Thompson and Sammy Lee) will be alongside him. Also to all the fans that say Harry and Jamie Redknapp to come in summer sorry to burst the bubble but this will not happen. Daniel Levy will not allow this to happen as Tottenham look very strong under the leadership of Redknapp and he will not allow this to happen. Furthermore, if LFC are partly owned or fully owned by ARABS they will want the best so expect the 'SPECIAL 1' Jose to join. He has not had a happy relationship with the media at Italy and he would like to come to LFC as he has mentioned before LFC possess the crowd the atmosphere the passion he thrives. Jose will also like the board as they will not meddle in team affairs unlike a certain Mr Roman Abrahamovic. Also Gus Hiddink is another name in the mix as he has an impressive CV please note all managers with European Champions League experience will be considered, As the ARABS want someone to take LFC to the Premier League title and the Champions League title. LFC are known to give a manager time to rebuild and this is something the managers will agree is a bonus selling point.

Please Post to stop all the useless rumours regarding LFC !!!


Birmingham City are interested in signing Walsall defender Emmanuele Smith and expect to sign the youngster for £800, 000 in January 2010 along with Rangers striker Kris Boyd.


Once again Rafa Benitez has hung onto his job for the forseeable future. As I previously posted, the owners cannot afford to spend £20million sacking the manager. Instead, the owners have decided to put their full weight behind Rafa and will give him £20million of their own money to spend in January to get the season back on track. George Gillett has recouped £350million from selling his ice hockey team and Tom Hicks will sell the Texas Rangers baseball franchise for the same amount. Lets not forget Tom Hicks and Rafa Benitez get on extremely well with each other. The owners, Christian Purslow and Kenny Dalglish have all told Rafa that a striker has to be a priority. Rafa though will look to sign two players on loan with a view to sign both players permenantly in the summer. David Bentley will come in on loan from Spurs possibly along with Roman Pavlyuchenko. The other strikers Rafa is looking at are, Dieumerci M'Bokani, Goran Pandev, Ezequial Lavezzi, Jermain Defoe, Vagner Love, Dani Guiza.


Just want to know if there is any real rumours whos going to take over when rafa goes. got worried when i read that arry and chelsea jamie where in the be gutted but think its time for him to the moment its as if souness is in charge again.we will beat the filth sunday but it won't be enough to save rafas job.


Sven Goran Eriksons former right hand man Tord Grip is Svens choice for the vacant post at Notts County. He has emerged as the front runner for the Job and will be announced next Wednesday.


Man utd will sign pato.


Cardiff City January Transfers:

IN: Danny Gabbidon, Nigel Quashie, Wayne Routledge, Jay Spearing (loan from Liverpool)

OUT: Steve McPhail (Leeds), Joe Ledley (Everton), Mark Hudson (QPR with Routledge going other way) and Peter Whittingham (Real Mallorca)

Plus, Cardiff City will be taken over by May 1st 2010 but NOT by the MalaysiansI personally know a few people 'high up' at Cardiff and more will come out after Christmas expect to hear some more solid news in February 2010.


Arsenal 2 sign Sakho in the summer 4 around 10 million unless PSG agree 2 take Senderos or Silvestre which will bring the fee down 2 8 million. Subotic is also a chance but at 18 million his price is steep and with Barca, Milan, Man Utd, Chelsea and Man City tracking him Wenger is not about 2 get in a bidding war and may opt 4 Ajax's Gregory Van Der Wiel who's true position is CB or Libero but has been playing RB 4 Ajax and is rated at 8 million. Don't expect a midfielder but Defour and Matudi are still on Wenger's radar.

Liverpool don't have much 2 spend but are looking 4 a man 2 play behind Torres and Internacional's Nicloas Lodiero fits the bill and will cost 8 million.

Man Utd are unlikely 2 buy in Jan but are considering a 28 million euro move 4 Fioretina sensation Stevan Jovetic in the summer.

Chelsea are appealing 2 the court of Arbitration of Sport have their ban frozen so Ancelotti can buy in January and is considering a shock move 4 Emile Heskey as well as Ghana starlet Adihyah who was top score at the U20's in Egypt.

Barcelona are interested in signing Robinho from City but have been frustrated in their efforts so far as City want a star like Ribery 2 replace him which is unlikely 2 happen so have turned 2 Ajax's Luis Suarez who is rated at 16 million to replace Thierry Henry (bound 4 the New York Red Bulls朚LS) on the left杝ide.

Real Madrid's first order of business next summer will b 2 buy back in杅orm Alvaro Negredo from Sevilla 4 17 million and Van Nistelrooy is likely 2 be let go of with Roma interested.

Inter Milan are closing in on Lazio outcast Goran Pandev as well as a 12 million move for German centre杊alf Jerome Boeteng.

AC Milan are trying to inject youth into their frail side by signing Neymar (dubbed the new Robinho) and Parma's McDonald Mariga who has been in scintillating form 4 10 and 15 million respectively.


Big news out of Anfield Rafa after having crisis talks with the club owners has promised to resign if he can't take at least a point from this Sundays game. New manger will not be anyone from outside but will be the King himself, Kenny Dalglish to take over at Liverpool and will keep Sammy Lee on as his assistant. He has drawn up a list of targets already which will be looked at in Jan and in the summer. I do not have the whole list but i can tell the following names are all on it.
Gabby Agbonlahor(Aston Villa)
Stephen Ireland (Manchester City)
Adam Johnson (boro)
Alexander Hleb(Barca)
Peter Crouch (Spurs)
Arda Turan (Galatasaray)
Rafael Van der Vaart(Real Madrid)


Melwood was like a ghost town today with more people in the physio's rooms than out on the pitches. The rumours on the site are wrong the majority of the players want to see the back of Rafa. A few like Massa and Lucas love him but theres no love lost with the rest. Carragh sees it as a chance to move on to the coaching staff as he is doing his FIFA badges.


The Royal Bank of Scotland have allowed an extended overdraft facility worth an additional £30m to Liverpool Football Club. This was made at the request of George Gillett and Tom Hicks, with the view of that debt being absorbed by any new investor, most likely Kingdom Holdings.
The request was made in the event of noises being made towards the Americans by potential investors about the possibility of change at management level, allowing the new investors to take the reins with minimal fuss.
