Crystal Palace supremo Dougie Freedman to tie up a deal for young Scottish striker Alex Macdonald from burnely for an undisclosed fee before the Brighton match.(4)(8)Im a burnley fan and he won't have a career at championship level.


22 Jan 2012 22:54:12
Arsenal have been looking at villas ciaran Clark.(4)(16)Why? Did you see how that Wolves winger run him wragged in the first half before McLeish moved him.He is better employed in Central midfield anyway....but why go to Arsenal? He has only just become a regular at Villa, if he did go to them he would just warm the bench most weeks anyway. It would be a sideways move as they are as likely to win anything as Villa...Wenger is a tt! clearly proved yesterday with his awful subsitution. he will get another couple of seasons under his belt then go to Man Utd or ChelseaArsenal only looking wenger won t be buying soon be going back to france now the gunners fans gtarting to give him stickno trophys this season


22 Jan 2012 22:40:39
I am very good mates with Michael Jacobs and can confirm he has had no offers from any club and does not have a medical with Cardiff on Tuesday.(8)(9)If he goes anywhere it will be to bradfordWhy would he go to bradford when championship clubs want him going to bradford kind of a sideways stepSpot on mate jacobs to Bradford as johnnie boy said YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS


22 Jan 2012 22:07:54
Ed any toon transfer news or is it just Cisse? Is there Any centre backs? and I think Ogbonna would be good would he be dear(1)(7) 

Probably cost around 8m would be great signing big strong and quick (for centre back)


22 Jan 2012 22:09:03
SAINTS to sign Jason Pearce from Portsmouth next week plus Rodriguez from Burnley(11)(34)Wont happen. Its unlikely southampton need someone like Jason PearceThe same Rodriguez who rejected a move to saints in the summer .. he won't leave until the summer and when he does it will be to a much bigger club than southampton. quality player. {Ed003's Note - Good player }


22 Jan 2012 22:08:12
Reading FC are set to sign Bradley Wright-Phillps from Charlton Athletic and Jason Puncheon from Southhampton after big investment from Russian Billionares TSI.(10)(24)Nonsense. We agreed terms with BWP last season but his knees are shot. JP is not one of McDermott's targets.Take over not to take place till the end of the season - sky sportsRead the article, its subject to FA approval, and they have said "Limited Funding". Good luck with thatTake over not to take place till the end of the season - sky sports


Read the article, its subject to FA approval,

FA approval (already proved to mean diddly squat).

and they have said "Limited Funding". Good luck with that

That is until the takeover is complete. Unlike a lot of recent takeovers this one is being conducted properly on both sides.You had the chance to sign him before charlton but you didnt because of his knees as said above also for everyone worried about his contract it does expire end at the end of the season; not anymore! his contract triggered and extra year when he made 25 apps and it was his 25th app against sheff utd so he has 1 year left and will begin negotiations with charlton for a longer one!!From a saints fan! u can have punch! but i warn u he'll upset the dressing room there just as he has everywhere hes played! thinks hes bigger than everyone!! {Ed003's Note - Strange that, as he was a model professional at B'pool last year and produced some fantastic performances in the top flight}


22 Jan 2012 22:06:47
alri ed? any man united rumours? especially on a CM? {Ed003's Note - Try the Man united page }(1)(7) 



22 Jan 2012 21:38:03
craig gardener going to birmingham on loan,seen down at st andrews on sunday 7pm(8)(34)I would love this to be true...
I think he's been given a hard time by bcfc fans, who don't know the whole truth.
I think he deserves another chance.He said on twitter he was visiting his family in birmingham obviously a SGBNo Birmingham fan how would a gordie know he was down here and it looks more and more likely he will leave did you see his reaction after scoring a goal like that he did not look happy at all if that had been me a would of been going madThay turn down the lone playerWe turned the loan offer down and he said on his twitter he didnt have a chance to celebrate because bardsley and cattermole lept on him, he is a mackem now and he will get over his home sickness and be at sunderland for years, he was visiting his family thats why he was in birmingham sundayGardner has already explained his reaction to the goal he scored, he stated that the reaction was tongue in cheek to suggest it was 'easy' dont read anything into it...hes going no whereHe hates Manager, and loan bid was only rejected because bcfc didn't want to pay his wages, but now they have sold beausejour they can pay his wages


22 Jan 2012 21:37:05

22 Jan 2012 21:18:05
Think you will find Kane Ferdinand has already signed for millwall(2)(10)Who says?Who is the player that has apparantly signed for millwallKane FerdinandWho says? The only guy from us linked with Millwall was Ryan Hall.Like the Ipswich fan last week are you being a Wind Up Merchant? You say Kane's already signed but unless he has today, which I doubt being a sunday, then I fail to see how he has done so considering also he came on as a sub for us at The Shrews yesterday. So he couldn't have signed then either. Again, Who says this?


22 Jan 2012 21:16:04
west ham to sign ben marshell for 750000 deal done for weekend as marshell is stalling on new contract(0)(23)No he hasn't. In fact Marshall should sign a new contract next week and Leicester if anyone look favourites to loan him.


22 Jan 2012 21:15:47
ive heard newcastle have offered davie weir a contract till the end of the season(8)(33)WEIR on the TYNE ?Why would they sign a 40 year old central defender? Great player in his prime.........but not now!

22 Jan 2012 21:15:05
Hey ed, do you think 'Arry will make any last minute deals this window? I feel that today's performance showed we NEED a big man up top to lead the line, and as Adebayor is only on loan, and unlikely to sign permanently. {Ed013's Note - I think you did very well today. I've not heard any names other than Remy but i'm sure Harry will have a trick up his sleeve like he did when he got Ven der Vaart}(4)(4)Don't think you need a big man upfront but more a ref that can see what's going on. You were robbed a point today.Ref may have won the title for them how great a run for the title it would have been had spurs got justice and the three points they would have got had man city been down to 10Ref had nothing to do with it... I don't believe it was Howard Webb who couldn't quite reach that late chance, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't him who brought Balotelli down either...

And we don't need a big man in January - we have Adebayor til the end of the season!

AND, Harry had nothing to do with the VDV signing!


22 Jan 2012 21:14:41
Marten Jol has indicated an admiration for Newcastle midfielder Danny Guthrie (24) who is stalling on contract talks at theToon.(16)(7)Possible - where would he fit? Long term replacement for DM with a bit of development. Good tackling, good passing. Temprament a bit suspect.Sounds OK, any evedence ???He's staying !!Ive heard hed jump at a move to be a 1st team regularI know danny quite well i went to school with him. hes from donnington in telford. He is after a move back to the midlands. Teams he has been offered to include Aston villa and West Brom. Danny is on 30k a week wages which he knows he will have to take a hit on to move. He isnt happy playing second fiddle at newcastle after helping with promotion. When tiote is back he knows hes relegated to the bench again. the only thing that will keep him at the barcodes is if he is offered same wages again


22 Jan 2012 21:11:34
Those who keep on about MM losing his job at Wolves should put their money where their mouth is. still accepting bets that he will be next to go.(15)(5)Mm gone.
Wait to see statement tomorrow


22 Jan 2012 21:06:24
hi ed know of any blackburn news ? {Ed013's Note - Kean says Samba is staying but expect deadline day drama. Nothing else im afraid}(5)(6)

dj campbell seen down st andrews watching games and craig gardener keen to go back on loan(10)(21)Absolutely true,ive seen himAnd gardner is staying at sunderland unlucky


22 Jan 2012 21:02:46
After Spurs's loss to ManCity today Harry Redknapp will splash £30,000,000 on Newcastle trio Demba Ba, Cheik Tiote & Tim Krul. He will also win the race to sign Chris Samba from Blackburn, and will also take Junior Hoillett with him.(9)(54)We would want 30 million just for tiote numb nuts hahIt would take atleast 70 mill to get them newcastle trio so good luck with that. Unless harry is going to do more illegal financingWhat a load of rubbish 30 mill for 3 players more like 30 million eachHa worst rumour ever!Ba doesnt have a release clause unless we finish below 12th so he would cost atleast 20million, Tiote is atleast 25million and Krul well he's better than De Gea so he's atleast 20million aswel so unless yous have got 65million too spend then stop talking nonsenseR u being serious? 30m wise up
Demba 25m
Krul 20m
Tiote 25m
so that is 70mDeluded Geordies with their price valuations=if we come in they will be off to us-at least they might win something!!Spurs have no need for Tiote, would not pay the money for Ba because he wouldn't pass a medical. Krul looks a possiblity in summer but that's the only player from Newcastle Spurs will pursueNo chance on samba he's going nowhere he's been told can leave till summer and junior looks like he's staying put for nowBa wudnt go anyway he looks like he's enjoying is football at newcastle atmYou did get a lot to spend on football manager didnt you?LOL spurs fans... when manu or manc come knocking in the sumer modric will leave. Also, if a serious bid comes in for Bale he to will be leaving, then you will have your 75 mil to but Ba, Tiote and Krul...


22 Jan 2012 21:00:13

22 Jan 2012 20:58:50
iya ed, and rumours regarding Burnley? {Ed013's Note - Clubs interested in Rodriguez but I doubt the likes of Norwich, West Brom etc could afford his valuation. EH is looking at strengthening your strike force due to lack of goals}(4)(4)


22 Jan 2012 20:58:40
craig gardener going on loan to birmingham with sunderland paying half his wages(8)(24)What a half wit comment, why would a club allow a player to leave on loan and pay half his wages when he is scoring goals, only thing they would consider is a sale, with a club paying more than we paid for him

22 Jan 2012 20:40:23
But bearly be able to spell, or construct a coherent sentence. The rivalry is what the real fans on both sides are about. No proper Southampton or Pompey fans, want to see the other go out of business.(4)(10)Speaking as a Saints fan, pompey need to be cut TO THE BONE if they want to get rid of Chanurai and the Russians.

Their problem is that the only real value is with the land. If Pompey want to survive they may need to move to more modest accomodationOh how hilarious! Digging at people's spelling when cannot spell oneself. My oh my...

22 Jan 2012 20:27:02
Reading will announce Jordan Rhodes as a Reading player tomorrow.

Daily Mail are running with the breaking story on Monday.

No idea of the fee.

Long live mother Russia!(9)(22)We will not spend the kind of money that is being touted for rhodes and I wouldn't want us to. Yes he looks good but he's not proven at championship level so the kind of sums being mentioned would be too much of a gamble.It's Jason Roberts.The deal has been agreed with Jimmy Kebe going to Hudds on loan until the end of the seasonHa ha ha mother Russia my backside!! They consortium have said there will be " limited funding" available. Anyway it's Roberts not Rhodes!! Ha ha ha jokers


22 Jan 2012 20:22:18

ED close this thread nowMick should have gone last May! Wolves will wait until they get relegated this May. Mick will walk away as Morgan and Moxey have no bottle!How can you defend him how many wins last 20 gamesHope to god it is not true.

With Mick in charge the Dingles are certain for relegation.God knows why the gutless, whining geordie is being touted as a poss replacement?..Shearer does'nt have the stomach for long term management. This fool makes a bag of sugar look interesting!

Jay Demerit to be re signed from Vancouver Whitecaps if Mariappa is sold .(2)(9)


22 Jan 2012 19:41:39
Watford Rumours:

-The hopes of Tommy Smith returning could be over as the winger boosted his chance of a return in the QPR team as he is playing really well and scored a great goal.-Watford could put a bid in for highly rated Bournemouth winger Marc Pugh as the hornets are struggling on the wing since the departure of Michael Kightly back to Wolves after a very succesful loan spell.-Watford are interested in Shrewsbury striker James Collins. Watford want a prolific goalscorer to partner Marvin Sordell and Collins has scored 14 goals in 48 appearences for Shrewsbury and the hornets are tempted to put in a bid for the striker.-Hornet starlet Marvin Sordell says he will not be leaving Watford as he just wants to focus on scoring and playing. Sources suggest he would leave but Sordell stated he just wants to focus on the hornets.(8)(3)Smith was never coming back to watford, he is on good money and he is a good squad player along with HH. Sordell is leaving, just waiting for the other club to generate money to buy. the WFC will be in the market


22 Jan 2012 19:34:04
Reading enter the race for Jamie Mackie after having £3.5m bid for Jordan Rhodes turned down.

Reading have joined West Ham in the hunt for WBA striker Peter Odemwinge.(3)(22)Y would u leave for West Brom for West Ham not that Hammers r worse but the league and Odemwinge could do better anywayNow that we have some money coming in we are signing everyone.

I think that should cover it.No they are not. Reading have 'limited funds' as said by the owners! Looks like threading fans are set to challenge the saints fans as the most deluded this season!


22 Jan 2012 19:33:42

Ed, any reading fc rumours? {Ed013's Note -No player rumours, but heard that a Russian billionaire was looking to invest}(8)(3)Looking to invest!?! He has brought Reading! {Ed003's Note - It wont happen until summer anyway according to reports }Confirmed and has already provided some funds for January transfers. 51% shares purchased, just the FA to do their bit now and will all be confirmed in March. Son of billionaire is the head of a consortium of investors.

Don't expect massive changes. It'll be much more of the same, minus having to sell our best players, and can now buy a better class of player than we could before.

We're not a bunch of arrogant fools like Leicester, spending silly sums of money on the wrong players, and approaching players before permission is granted (Jimmy Kebe).Not trueNot true

Wrong my friend,I think you will find it is very true.

I think he'll definitely turn a few heads in the npower. It was a disgrace that he was left off the team sheet against Fulham. He needs games because he has every chance to become a real talent

Norwich face a fight tson.o hang on to morison. Newcastle to offer chance of permanent premiership football. Without him, norwich may go the way of hull and blackpool.(1)(19)Total rubbish, obviously a Jealous Ipswich fan stirring the pot. Lambert will not sell him unless Newcastle offer stupid money and by that I mean 8M+, likewise Newcastle have just signed another forward, so they certainly don't need Morrison.Says the supporter of a team that's been in the Premier League one season longer than us. tt!Says the supporter of a team that has been in the Premier League one season longer than us! Fool...Hope morison does go to a bigger club than norwich then norwich fans will know what its like to have your best players' head turned by more money. Noriwch have been taking the best players from teams in championship since their promotionOver the age of 26 so will not be going to newcastle

Norwich City's bid for Ipswich stars Jason Scotland and Michael Chopra has been accepted, deal will be finalised when personal terms and medical is completed.(5)(17)Ha ha straight swop for holt and morrisonMust be an Ipswich supporter again, poor players both on the slide and certainly not good enough for the current Norwich squadJealousy is a terrible thing Ipswich fans.Chopra and particularly Scotland barely good enough for championshipI'm not jealous..I couldnt care less about u guys. Must admit cockiness and arrogance aren't very attractive qualities either!(original poster) Haha sorry was really bored so thought I'd just stir up a little bit of a banter, I'm a 10 year season ticket holder for NCFC :p I believe the deal is a straight swap for Sexy Aaron WilbrahamWhat ?? it might be Chops, but very unlikely, and certainly not Scotland, and I'm a Tractor boy through and through, the good times and the bad, it happens to us all, we just have to face it and rebuildWouldn't want either of them even if they were free.Jesus christ, I'm a 15 year season ticket holder at Town, this is the most ridiculous thing I've heard, Scotland has been working his socks off recently, so is keepable, and we want Chopra to find his form as we are in the knowledge of his goal scoring potential - these are the two least likely players we'd want to get rid of.


22 Jan 2012 17:55:13
I agree with david moyes if the english game wants to progress then clubs should be alloud to create b teams and allow to play in the conference and below these teams should consist of home grown players with only three over seas players contracted this would mean teams produce more talent and the national sides would benefit you only have to look at spain and barcalona as prime examples(8)(6)Taht could mean in 3 yrs time Everton B or arsenal or manu could be in championshipThe system has only been around for 40 years and only in the past 5 or 6 has it produced anything successful on the international scene. Meanwhile Germany have been an ever present... (well apart from when it was West Germany)The vast majority of Spurs 2nd string go out on loan-A lot in the Championship and League 1-Caulker, who was on loan at Yeovil, before Bristol City is now at Swansea-Seems to work well for themHappens in Spain I think the RMCF B team r in the second divison as r Villereal and Barca were in the place-offs

22 Jan 2012 17:36:41
Fuller and jones to everton cahill to stoke streight swap also stoke to sign a young striker(10)(19)Cahill would be a good addition to the stoke squad, Kenny Jones wouldn't be missed be think fuller would. Baines will follow before Window closes if he has any sense. Stoke are going places, where do Everton go?Stoke have been interested in Cahill (who nearly joined in August) and Coleman who they have been given a no go from Moyes on for some time. Cahill could well happen.

Everton amongst a few teams after Fuller but Jones won't leave this windowWhat the f would stoke want with a footballer !

Paul jewell will turn his attention to crystal palace paddy McCarthey and swidons Paul caddis after his Latest bid for Pompey pair Pearce and ward has been rejected.hes also thinking of an offer for Huddersfield Peter Clarke as he looks to plug his sides Leakey defence.

Also in jewells sights are....

Doncaster duo George friend and billy sharpe,
Newcastle gk Steve harper
Lutons jake Howells
derby countys Paul green
And free agent bojan djordic(5)(7)Paul Jewell needs to turn his attention to the door and leave.Caddis should have been approached ages ago at the beginning of the window, he's a decent right back, Steve Harper would be excellent no more loanee goalies, cant see sharpe moving unless 3 million plus is up front, Friend would be a good acquisition as would McCarthy of palace, PJ has certainly got to pull his finger out and get at least 4 players in RB CB & GKThere is no way Ipswich will get paddy. He has said he would like to remain at palace until the end of his career.Of the above the only ones likely are green and howells.

Arsenal are planning a £5m bid for Reading youngster and cousin of Theo Walcott - Jacob Walcott.

The winger has yet to break into the Reading first team but is the latest young starlet to come through Reading's impressive youth academy.

Reading are believed to have rejected the interest in their player.(9)(25)He has yet to break into the 1st team Of a lower league team yet you state arsenal will bid 5m ... Get a gripHe not good yet but give him 3 years he will be better than his cousinIt's not true, why would Reading reject a 5 mil bid for a youngster who has no real sign of pushing for a first team place this season or in the next year or soNo chance - 5m for someone who does not start for the reserve side of a championship side all the time - wenger might be easily impressed by youth but not even he would do this deal

Federici has in the past tried to encourage bids from the Premier League but they fell on deaf ears.

Federici has now demanded a new contract as the clubs top earner or to be made available for transfer. McDermott already has a ready replacement in Alex McCarthy and has called the players bluff by agreeing to let the player go if a suitable bid comes in.

No bids have been made as yet.(8)(16)I live near federici and he does not want to leave

Clarkson swap deal st Johnston
Campbell ryce- loan Huddersfield
bobby Reid months loan chesterfield.
lee Johnson- 100,000 Preston or yeovil
Mccalister- permannent to Preston- nominal fee
And maybe maynard 2m + Dobbie? Spoke to sextone yesterday as he was presenting cap at half time and he said no truth in McNamus but hoping to tie up a deal for Briggs.(8)(9)Lots of talk about Matty briggs coming to you. If he does - treat him well. He will provide loads of opportunities if you have a striker in form and is a sound defender.

We sold Smalling to Man Utd for 12m - Briggs is better at this stage of his development. Not quite Bale, but getting there.Maynard to Newcastle

Mat Ritchie to Bunely, as for Tubbs doubt he will ever leave creepy Crawley. Yet Swindon Town may surpise a few clubs with new striker coming in next week.As for mcleod that's a no no.Swindon will have 3/4 players leaving by end of Jan.
As for wage cap was surprised at swindon Gates looks like good revenue compared to other Division 2 sides.
Sad to see southend.crawley and Cheltenham slipping up.However all 3 will in the play offs.
Bookies favourites to win the Leauge is amzingley Swindon Town.1 defeat in 21 games and coming good also have strength in squad, still time will tell(8)(12)Ritchie is not going hes with us until the end of the season and we all know 3 or 4 players will leave this week plus one striker coming in.Why would you be surprised by our gates we are the biggest team in this poor league and hopefully will be out of it this season. There is only us an two other teams that play football all the rest play hoof ball.Why is it amazing that you think we should win the league we are the best footballing side in this league by a distance.Biggest club? Are Bradford City and Plymouth Argyle not in league 2 then? Listen Swindon you are small fry, always have been and always will be so stop slapping each other on the backs and getting carried away with all your made up transfer targets, your doing ok for a small club but know your place. Your a nice small family clubDo your homework pal and check the average gates. Bradford get bigger gates than us as they charge about 10 to get in we are the most expensive club in L2 so if your a Burnley fan you cant crow about much but most likely a sad Oxford fanBurnley wont be signing anyone, Eddie Howe has already stated that no more permanent transfer will be coming in, unless we really have to i.e selling Jay Rod


22 Jan 2012 13:22:39

Not going to happen.Right, two things. He was on loan this season, not last season. Secondly, we sent him back early and apparently he hated him here! We won't be seeing him in a Watford shirt ever again thank god!He wasnt with celtic he was with rangers im scottish and a celtic fanHe was with Celtic for four years after release as Rangers youth player. Some fan you are.

AJ and Demsey ripped them a new one yesterdayThe toon won't sign anyone on 2 1/2 year deal min of 4 years onlyI agree, would be great if he signed as he can do a good job both at CB and RB, but as mentioned, we'd never sign a player to such a short term deal. the idea is to tie them up long term so it takes that much more money to break a contract if another club becomes interested. doubt it's true, unfortunatelyThe boy that said 4 years min contracts is spot on but add on a half too because most clubs like there players to have contracts till the summer of whatever year

He s been injured a lot. He s a good player, but yes maybe lacking in pace.

If you go good luckHe,s signing a contract extension,gonna take you down to the blue square,where you belong.Thats a load of rubbish. he has done well to keep them in the premier league. he has been given no money to improve the squad.With the budget wolves have got where else do they expect to be5th largest net spender in our time in premiership. so how is that no money?
Also if it was down to budget alone we would not be in the bottom 3. Whatever a great job mick has done it's 2 win's in 21 league games. I don't think there is another club in the country that would not pull the trigger now.

The Italian international is keen on a move away from Inter Milan after feeling his side are underachieving and will speak to the French side over a possible three and a half year deal, if £15 million is the price required.(4)(5)

paul lambert will go in a steel snodgrass off leeds,if u dont belive me WHY r leeds buying loads of wide men {Ed013's Note - Snodgrass is one player that wont be stolen. It would take at least 4-5 million to get him}(9)(16)Sems that all Lambert wants is to manage Leeds, with his buying all our playersSnoddy will go by end of next jan but if we are going to sell him for some decent money we need to sell him in the summer unless we get promoted and i feel he will be the player to get us prem footy. it will defo be in 4- 6 mil price range .Simon Grayson insisting no more sales after howsons exit

Source: Sky SportsThe same price was quoted about Howson and look how that panned out!
Face it Leeds fans, Bates is asset stripping you! And mugging you off with poor replacements!
How much have you received for players under his control?
And how much have you spent? {Ed013's Note - Ken Bates doesn't sign the players, he gives a budget that only allows certain quality!}Lambert and Snodgrass is all silly rumour and paper hype, He tried to get him in summer but because of Leeds stupid price quoted, instead went for Pilikington, and frankly we got the better deal, 2M for a 23 year old who will go on to be a huge signing for Norwich, 2 top 6 clubs already circling but have been told he is not for sale.
Bottom line Norwich don't want Snodgrass nor do we need him, why do you think no one else has offered the silly money Bates wants for him, because he ain't worth it.
Because it worked with Liverpool and Carroll, does not mean all clubs will fall for all the hype talk about what a player is really worth.No thats not right. No price was quoted for Howson, seeing as his contract was almost up anyway. Where on earth have you got that from? Snoddy will be off in the summer, when we aren't promoted, and good luck to him I say. Real talent, and deserves a move to a Newcastle or Everton or Villa.
wallyYour lack of real quality premiership players will cost you in the end... never has a bunch untried championship players triumphed in the top league, can't fault your teams passion and commitment, but quality always shines through. Howson and co are not premiership players dream on !

After this week's inept showing against Brighton, Peterborough will go all out to get Grimsby forward Liam Hearn in before window closes. Expect a similar deal that saw Ryan Bennett make the same journey. £250K + incentives + sell ons should see the deal through early this week.

Some of the fringe players at Posh likely to go out on loan to get game time with McCann fit and Frecklington back next week

Club record bid reported earlier on this site will take place in summer subject to survival. Word is that it will be Paul Coutts from Preston especially they now have a 'hoof it' manager

Wootton likely to make full time move on a 'free' with Tunnicliffe going back.(1)(12)


22 Jan 2012 10:11:54
I have it from a source within the club that Swindon have had a bid accepted for Mcleod, he will be in Swindon in the next two days for the medical and the contract negotiations and to meet Paolo, if this goes well he will be announced on Thursday or Friday. Kerouche has been offered but he is keen on a move to Wycombe.(4)(7)Why would he go to Swindon when a host of league one clubs are after him? Absolute nonsenseBecause they will be league 1 soon, with money and backers to take them to the championshipHmm, for someone who will have a choice of many clubs to go to in the summer, I find it difficult to believe that he would even consider signing for STFC. Especially with their unstable fascist manager at helm.

I was speaking to Matt Tubbs last night and he said he was very happy at Crawley but if the right CHAMPIONSHIP club came in for him with an offer which Crawley found acceptable he would be interested. I asked him if the Bournemouth speculation was true and he said financially the contract was very tempting but he didn't want to go back to the club as certain people were still behind the scenes who made his last short stint unpleasant. I then asked about the Swindon interest and he said there hadnt been interest then he laughed and said they wouldn't afford his goal bonus let alone a realistic transfer fee and wage.(13)(10)No-one is still at Bournemouth from his last stint, behind the scenes or otherwiseTubbs a league one player at best stick with creepy crawley


22 Jan 2012 08:50:19
ed anything on the hot talk strikers, Maynard? Tubbs? Rhodes? {Ed013's Note - Maynard still has his transfer request in and is holding out for the Premiership, but expect late bids form Leicester and West Ham. Matt Tubbs says he is happy at Crawley but I'm sure if a big club comes in he could go. Huddersfield have rejected bids for Rhodes and say he isn't for sale}(12)(3)Maynard was dropped yesterday, and was an unused sub-No surprise on form. It may be that something is being lined up, but the most likely looks like he will just let his contrcat run down.

I feel for portsmouth fans they desevre better, im sure u will be ok no other fans should get peasure in they slide as it could be your team next. To many clubs spending more than they earn.

22 Jan 2012 08:27:19
I'm going to ask 2 question. 1 now and 1 at the end of this post.
How do you define a clubs size? All this talk over Celtic, Southampton, how are you judging it. Money, fan base, fans at the match, past performance, current performance, potential future performance, size of ground.... etc ?
While you're thinking, I'll ask the 2nd question.
Apart from little boys and men with small tackle, who cares about size? Isn't it all about where you are in the league? {Ed013's Note - Ask the women out there, I'm sure they will have a comment on size!}(7)(2)Who cares ? Playground politics between Celtic and Saints fans just boring.
Stick to posting rumours.

Grim times for Portsmouth. It transpired today that the club's been served with ANOTHER winding-up order from HMRC for not paying december's tax, with the club likely to default on January's payment as well, leaving the bill at around 1.6 million.

So go on then, mock us and call us cheats etc, us fans had no idea about this and are as mortified and disgusted with it as everyone else inevitably will be.

Considering we even have the F.A's former head of integrity as a CEO, it makes the situation even more ironic.

I just wish we'd find an owner who can at least stabilise us. Hell, even if we ended up being a mid-table League 1 team for years, as long as we were paying our bills I'd be happy as a pig in .

I await the inevitable abuse.(21)(2)Bye bye.As a saints fan I could obviously wade in with a whole torrent of abuse, but what's the point?! We've been there! No matter how much banter flies between the clubs, without you fishy lot down the road, who are we going to banter with? Bournemouth?! Brighton?! Give me a break!
Get secure and stable, then let the banter recommence!You wont get no abuse off this SFC lad because your one of the few skate fans that actually lives in the real world unlike most of your lot who even on the brink there still wnt to keep spending and spending...Good luck your going to need it this timeAm a toon fan and always enjoy the Pompey boys up here and am very sorry for the fans but your club were a touch creative with their bookkeeping so had an advantage over the clubs that played fair.It will take time but you will come back.Every club and all their fans hope that Pompey stay in existence and that you come back from this, it's awful to think it can happen to any club, especially as we came within a few hours of disappearing, good luck mate.
LUFC fanGood luck Pompey,your fans dont deserve this se, Baggies fan.Swindon fan, we have been there with a bunch of crooks only four/five years ago we had two stints in administration and if it wasnt for the Andrew Fitton consortium we would be gone now, good luck mate I think you are going to need it.The fans dont deserve this, the atmosphete they created yesterday was special. Hope it ends up Okay - Cardiff FanGoodbye skates to all you lot who took the Micky for weeks when saints nearly folded not laughing now are we lol coysSwindon Town fan here......Good luck Pompy......we are all thinking of you guys and prey that you get saved and continue to play footy we can all enjoy.....STFC!!The club might deserve a kick but your fans are great and dont deserve the problems at all.Good luck to youEvery Club has gone through it, and most come out of it, Look forward to league 2 football against bradford, Better than nowt :)Saints Fan here - easy to sing when you are winning, good luck pompey fansSaints fan here take no notice of that last post he is obviously a ct, As sad as some of the comments are (from both sides) there is still some good banter that goes on and to be honest it makes me smile. There is a football god out there (we no that more than most) and I'm sure you will be saved in time fingers crossed. Good Luck {Ed013's Note - It would be sad for any team to go out of business and for those that want them to, shame on you. Think of it this way, if Pompey went out of the league, who would be your enemies then Saints fans?}You need new owners who will not throw money on transfer fees and silly wages
around like confetti club needs to stabailize
even if it means relegation and start paying
its billsGlad to see the great comment from the scummer. True pompey fans did not want scum to go out of business, the banter between the fans is good, then there's idiots like you!!!!Saints fan here. I hope you find a buyer and it works out for you.Wolves fan here you fans will overcome some daySaints fan in peace,PFC will survive and come back stronger,look on the bright side at least you didnt get taken over by the man from atlantis,there is a buyer out there for you good luck!Ipswich fan here, I'm not being mersenary here but for the sake of keeping going if we offer you 2million for pearce & Ward take it, as your not in the best position to bargain at the moment, I hope you Pompey boys make it your a bloody good lot down there, and if new owners do come in for gods sake make sure there not like that last bunch of crooks youve had that's put you into this awful position, we know weve been there had to sell all our best players, and its fortunate that Marcus Evans came in and rescued us, PUPSaints fan here i hope you dont go under because i think both sets of fans would miss the great derby days. but if it does happen and i would properly be shot for saying this but you could always come and surrport the saints. i know this would never happen but just think of the fan base we would have, almost as big as the 60.000 fans as celtic fans keep banging on about, any good luck i think you are going to need it this timeAs a Saints fan I do not want to see Pompey go out of business. Banter and some friendly abuse in the mean time is expected though! I would say to all of the so called best fans in the country as they try and claim, stop hitting nails in your own coffin by staying away. The situation is being made worse with your awful gates.Pompey have some of the best fans in the country and a great history. You do not deserve this. Surely somebody will step in and buy your club. Fingers crossed for you!Supporting sunderland we have a little team not far away darlington in trouble. with so much money in the game now teams should never be in trouble with finances. if every prem league player donated just 10% of a weeks wage to lower league football we would never have this problem BEST OF LUCK from all football fans play up pompeySaints fan here - good luck to pompey and their fans - love the banter between the PROPER fans - theres always afew mindless idiots on both sides but 90% of Saints fans i know dont want you out of business.I once read it don't matter if your a man, woman, child, oap, or cripple we will punch, kick or stab you cos at the end of the day you are scum. So as a saints fan I hope you go under & never come back cos to me that is the talk of real scum. Bye bye.Great !! what come's around !!! & all that lot ! saints marching on !!

My mate Nick Arnold is a member of the Reading reserves and he told me that Reading have been planning swoops for a few players in order to score more. Jason Puncheon is to be approached soon in a cash plus player deal. Ryan Bertrand is another player who will be offered a loan deal until the end of the season, with the option to buy at £2.5mil. Gylfi Sigurdsson is keen on a return back to his former club, but as he is on loan at Swansea a bidding war between Swansea and Reading will commence. Reading should have the advantage in funds but Brendan Rodgers has been impressed with his creativity and therefore funds could be made available to secure him from Hoffenheim.(3)(9)Defo would welcome sig back but cant see it happening as swansea are in the prem and we arent and i doubt money would help - he's not drogba, tevezIf true without any disrespect to Reading but who have you got for under 1million that Saints would want as that our asking price for Puncheon?Saints have wanted Michail Antonio since his loan there. He would be the player plus cash.


22 Jan 2012 02:06:49
Ok, here goes

I have very good information that Huddersfield are doing a deal with Celtic for the transfer of Jordan Rhodes in the summer.

Nigel Clibbens has apparently had talks with Celtics Peter Lawell about a link up between the clubs.

This deal would see Rhodes transfer to Celtic in the close season, the fee is still being discussed!

As part of the deal Huddersfield will have access to Celtics young players and fringe players with Celtic picking up the majority of wages. I think this would be a great deal for Huddersfield, rather than a big one off fee, a regular flow of players would be better in the long term.

Will tell more as i find out!(20)(27)Celtic can't afford jordan rhodesAbsolute Rubbish, Huddersfield want to keep hold on Rhodes in the summer, wont happen if they stay in League 1 but they arent going to agree to sell to ANYONE till they know there position for next yearHow cant celtic afford jordan rhodes?Todays papers are saying westham and southampton are fighting it out for him. but as a saints fan i would love him to sign for us but hfc are a good club and he would do well to stay and see if they go up


22 Jan 2012 01:48:26
pompey have said no players for sale bar maybe ben haim and moks plus we only have etthu for a month so saying an additional year is rubbish and a takeover is set to take place in time(2)(10)I wouldn't guarantee we're not selling anyone, considering our inept baboon of a CEO seems to have forgotten to pay last months' tax bill an has left us being served with another wining-up order, I think we'll be shifting whoever we can out of the door quick-sharp.

Reading FC, in what has been a very eventful 24 hours, has become one of England's richest clubs having sold 51% of their shares to a Russian consortium headed by Anton Zingarevich.

Chairman Sir John Madejski has been quoted as saying this is the billionaire he has always hoped would come in and take over. The club can now stop selling it's top players every summer to remain one of the few clubs in the country to make an operating profit, and can now bring in a "different class of player" in their quest to get back to the Premiership and then push on and become a permanent fixture in the top division.

Last week Reading were linked with Huddersfield striker sensation Jordan Rhodes, and Reading are due to complete the £2.2m capture of his signature before the close of the January transfer window.

Also on manager Brian McDermott's shopping list is Nottingham Forest defender Wes Morgan, and highly rated Northampton winger Michael Jacobs.

The summer will see a greater investment after the 51% buyout is completed in March.(13)(22)You write so creatively so it's funny to see you made up such rubbish.Why is this unbelievable when it seems to be true

as for the players, jordan rhodes looks a good shoutI don't care how much money you've got now, 2.2 will NOT get you Jordan Rhodes. Good luck trying to buy your way out of the Championship next season, it'll be harder than you think....Before you get too excited, read the posts about Portsmouth and think on!2.2 million for Rhodes! Ha ha you dreamer! And Morgan will be confirmed as a Leicester player in time to play vs Southampton.

Keeeeeeep dreeeeeaaaamming!2.2 Million for rhodes? 3, 5 and 6 been turned down already!Jacobs going to huddersfield by all accountsReading are one of the best run clubs in the country as far as finances are concerned. We will not be doing a Portsmouth. The new investors have promised to make funds available for transfers this January. We have been linked with pretty much every player going so who we will get remains a mystery. One thing's for sure we won't be doing a Leicester and buying every player available and watching them all flop. Reading will continue to be run in the same prudent way it always have. Id expect to see Michael Jacobs and a decent striker arrive. I doubt it will be Rhodes as Huddersfield have ridiculously inflated ideas of how much he is worth.

Ps. Don't let the green eyed monster get the better of you. Just cus the Ruskie's didn't want to invest in your team.Yes it's a billionaire owner but that doesn't always mean we'll spend stupidly to get back to the Premiership.

Reading wont be splashing money like Leicester have to get promoted. We already have one of the best youth academy's in the Football League and further investment will be made.

As for the first team, yes we will spend more than we have in recent years but it wont be stupid money like the 5m to get Matt Mills. He was never worth 2m, let alone 5m. We have always bought players that fit into 'the Reading mould' and we will continue to do so.If the new investment enables us to keep our better players (two years too late sadly) and even enhance the squad, that can only be a good thing. And if it goes wrong, what's the worst that can happen, a crisis, a points deduction, relegation, it's all part of the rich soap opera of following a football club.

Right now, it's dull, and would only have got duller on our current trajectory, so get your gaze off the floor and dare to dream.This is coming form someone on thge inside at Reading! no deal has been done yet! and it wont be untill the mid of march! but it looks good that it will happen! but it still might not! its all on reading website!
