  I hear that Alan Stubbs fancies his chance as Everton's next assistant manager

  the Hammers.

100 percent true.

giles Barnes is on his way to Upton Park he will be signed in January but he will go back to Derby on loan until the end of the season.

this may sound bizarre but the Hammers still want Adriano he did not come this time round because he wanted 140 grand a week and the Hammers was not prepared to pay that Manchester City are also interested.

shorey will sign in January but only as cover for McCartney.

Quashie is off

spec is off

painstil is off

the Hammers will also bid for Mancini but I not 100 percent sure on that one.

Julio baptista will join Manchester City or most likely Tottenham for £8 million in January

middlesbourgh want James Beatie because there forwards have not played well this season

ben watson has been made availabe by crystal Palace becasue they need money to buy players

Cardiff will make a bid for Rob Earnshaw on loan

  My brother works at SOHO Sq and he says the FA will not appoint someone for a little while, they are going to let the dust settle. Although the talking point at FA HQ is Scolari. The FA are hoping he will leave Portugal to manage England and Jose will become the Portugal Manager.

  Man United January and Summer Transfers 2008:

About £25 millionp available for each of the next two windows. These funds are guaranteed, and the Summer kitty could increase based on success in Europe. If so, expect United to increase their youth recruitment policy to keep some of the world's top young talent out of the hands of Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and even the 'nouveau Riche' City. Real Madrid and FC Barcelona youngsters are being monitored.

Sir Alex will try to keep his squad members happy, but expect an increased number of Outs should the squad become too bloated for some. On the Outs would be older squad players, making way for those future talents with IMMENSE potential. Contrary to Fergie's comments, United will continue to go continental in recruitment with a focus on bringing in English Talent at the 15/16/17 year old level. There appears to be a real influx of British talent coming through that age bracket and United seem to be tying up most if not all of the real SPECIAL talents as we speak.

January Ins:

– Samuel Eto'o £15 millionp

– Miguel Veloso £10 millionp (rising to £17 millionp)

– John Bostock £3 millionp

United are in a real bout with Madrid for Veloso, and Barcelona, Inter, AC Milan and Arsenal are expected to step up interest.

January Outs:

– Louis Saha (swap deal with FC Barcelona for Eto'o)

– Darren Fletcher £4 millionp (to Rangers)

Jan Loan Outs:

– Danny Simpson (Sunderland)

– Johnny Evans (Sunderland)

Jan Loan Returns:

– Darren Gibson

Summer Ins:

– Jovetic £10 millionp

– Alan Hutton £12 millionp (transfer agreement as part of Fletcher deal in January)

Summer outs:

– Silvestre £3 millionp (to Lyon)

Summer Outs may also include Simpson, Evans and Carrick – should he seek guaranteed first team action. Ryan Shawcross is pencilled in for the United first team, though he may go on loan to Sunderland.

My mate's father is a club insider – the above is fact.

Fergie invisages the following squad for the next few years; expect a real shift to youth recruitment after this Summer; barring the odd special talent.

  The wheels have come off at Liverpool. I repeat, the WHEELS have come off at Liverpool.

Expect Benitez to be sacked in the Summer. Also, expect LFC to move for Mourinho. However, he favors a move to Italy at this time and AC Milan look the likely destination. Partizan Belgrade's current manager Muricio is the likely target.

Failure to qualify in Europe will leave the LFC kitty absolutely threadbare in January. Expect a cheeky, and succesful, bid from Manchester City to prise away the promising talent Mascherano in January. Crouch is on the Outs – and will not likely be replaced until Summer. LFC will attempt to lure David Villa to the EPL in August at a greatly reduced fee to what was being touted this past Summer. Should a bidding war ensue, expect Liverpool to move for Anelka or Hesky. Also, expect bids for Gabriel Heinze and Garay though the funding for the latter is dependent on Champions Leage success. If not, then Heinze and Villa/Anelka/Hesky will be the TOP targets.

Hicks and Gillette are hoping the Liverpool youths will be able to fill out the bulk of the squad for the upcoming decade. However, expect Chelsea to prise away may of their most special talents in response to LFC's financial turmoil. ZOINKS.

Is relegation far away? This Liverpudlian, and Anfield insider, hopes not. 18–5.

  Rafa will probably only sign one first team player in January, the CD Garay from Racing Santander.

The only player going will be Carson to Villa.

Hyypia will leave on a free in the Summer and probably go abroad. Also leaving in the Summer will be Finnan, Riise, Sissoko, Kewell and Crouch.

Loan players currently out such as Guthrie and Le Tallec will also go.

Coming will be Hutton, Chiellini, Foggia and Pandev.

Young goalkeeper Mihaylov will return from loan to be No. 2 to Reina + Jack Hobbs will be given more of a chance.

  To the person who said Alan Hutton will sign for Newcastle for £4 million – that is rubbish. Alan will not move to Newcastle as he see's this as a step down from playing regular Champions League Football and contesting for honours. His destination will be Man United but not until Summer 2009 after sir Alex has watched is progression and the fee will be more that double the £4 million you quoted

  Afc Bulletin ( ( ( ( ( (

Boruc will probaly not be moving to Arsenal as Arsene Wenger tried 2 do a deal 4 him with Celtic and could not because Boruc cost 2 much in the Summer, Arsene Wenger will probaly move 4 WHUfc gk Green. Expect Luka Modric 2 move 2 Chelsea and not move to Arsenal with that, it is heard Arsene Wenger might move 4 either Gareth Barry or maybe David Bentley.

  Huddlestone to Reading, £2–3 million, Ramos says he is not fit enugh for Tottenham. if shorey goes then maybe Riise for £3–4, wages maybe to high. or bains £4–5. not getting played at Everton.
