It's a great RUMOUR! That's all it is.

Tis a rubbish rumour...... PDC would only go to an established top championship side, leaving you out of the pecking order....

Well still not happened yet !

No thanks! Thats 1man i do not want. Hope its just a rumour. Want to say thanks to jim lcfc for his input as its nice to know fans from other clubs are thinking the same as us palace fans. Steve cpfc

Bolton have more resources than Palace, he's gone for the money, end of.

Gone for the money the Selhurst Sellout. Heard Gearth Southgate was at the club today....take from it what you will....

Crystal Palace will make the appointment of a new manager before the home game with leicester city, with a few names to take up the reins at selhurst park are Gus poyet from arch rivals brighton with a substantial compensation package to pay , keith hill who was on their radar before the appointment of dougie freedman, or the appointment of palace legend steve coppell. though these are only speculative links.

Andy Thorn or Keith Curle

The only reason Gus Poyet would look at selhurst park,would be for out of city extra parking.

No chance of poyet going to palace

Paolo Di Canio

Haha !! Who put this rubbish on here? some bitter, jealous Palace fan thats who. Someone who has to try and be funny and have to try and knock brighton at every opportunity. Brighton are now a BETTER and well established club. Even if they wernt, theres more chance in The Moo winning world cup then Gus goine to palace.

Ian Holloway, you heard it here first.



23 Oct 2012 21:50:53
Brighton and Hove Albion manager Gus Poyet is rumoured to strongly be looking at young Sunderland and England U21 forward Connor Wickham to be brought in on loan to address the lack of goals and to add depth to the Seagulls frontline. Lucas Piazon of Chelsea is also on Poyet's radar and, like Wickham, be available to go out on loan, which is helped due to Poyet and Roberto di Matteo being such close friends.

Is j m Rooney coming to Barnsley then?

Yes but cant get international clearance until jan. UTR

We seem to have no luck at all with transfers or injuries

I know it's all bad look this year, but lets have all our good luck next year with a fully fit squad, who knows what could happen then!!!!

Are we really bothered about him?

Doesn't seem to have ever done anything, playing at a lower league club in USA can't see what the fuss is about, I dont really like his bro either. Anyway no problems what to sing when he scores Rooooooney

English clubs scouting personnel are unlikely to have been unaware of Wayne's brother, if he was any good he would not be in the US.

Transfer completed today

Signed today check out bfc official site

John Rooney has just signed for Barnsley might be playing on Saturday

John rooney is now officallly a barnsley player. let's hope he scores goals like wayne does for man utd then we may have a gem on our hands yet again

Signed and sealed

MK Dons have signed Angelo Balanta on a one month loan deal from QPR, this has the option to be increased to the rest of the season

Mk dons could sign david bentley in jaunary on loan

I wouldnt expect it, but with the dons history of signing big name players, it is always a possibility.

Bentley? Sounds great but will probably suffer a career-ending injury in the warm up before his debut. My advice? Stay put David.

Bentley has been talked about before, apparently he has the same agent as Robbo



23 Oct 2012 17:16:08
Harry Arter of Bournemouth is being lined up by a number of Championship Clubs and bottom of the table Priemership Clubs

Arters contract is up so his agent is working overtime. One good game in 18 months does not a good player make. If he can keep going in the right direction he might make it at AFCB never mind anywhere else

^Every Bournemouth in the right mind would say the same thing.

If true Arter would do the same as others with his agent pushing for him to only sit on the bench at a higher level but who cares the agent gets his cut.

Harry has more sense than to sit a warm a bench. Plus with the return of Howe (who bought him into Bomo in the first pace), he'll stay and be part of the promotion team! UTCIAD!

Every time we play Bourno Arter is brill! I would have him at Notts County in a flash - great team player - hang on to him!!

Just signed a new contract today so he will probably end up dire again



23 Oct 2012 15:23:01
Fulham are watching FC Cologne youngster Mikael Ishak...




23 Oct 2012 15:22:04
Alen Halilovic is a wanted man.

lots of clubs interested including both Manchesters and Real.




23 Oct 2012 14:44:36
Shearer shortlisted by Crystal Palace.

Heard the same from a mate.

Ive heard the same, god i hope not!

Too early to short list anyone.

Oh dear oh dear
great player
poor pundit
awful manager

On the shortlist he came 15th out of 15

burnley expected to appoint keith hill in the Next 48Hours! the latest rumour from turf
is that burnley made an approach for
blackpools ian holloway, but it was
belived to be rejected, compensation
for keith hill is supposed to be 1.3Mill!
he is also expected to bring his
backstaff with him to, Terry Pashley
is still in charge for tonight

Rubbish no approach been made for kieth hill

Steven Pressley in the frame

DeLaRusso {Ed003's Note - I heard that last week}

Wishfull thinking! Hill's not leaving, Shackell wishes he was still at Barnsley

Its going to be the cheap option yet again more than likely going to be graham alexander

A number of clubs are showing interest in Robin Shroot as he will become a free agent in January unless he signs a new contract with Stevenage. This may have something to do with his non-appearance in recent games even though he's the clubs top scorer



23 Oct 2012 14:12:40
Middlesbrough interested in a loan deal for barry ferguson with scott mcdonald going int he other direction. both clubs will continue to pay the wages of the players theyre sending out. possibly one of the most complicated wastes of time ever, as the seasiders dont need a striker and boro dont need a centre midfielder but hey...thats what i heard!

Birmingham also interested in Barry Ferguson.

DeLaRusso {Ed003's Note - Brum are refusing to pay all his wages at the moment but a player swap has been mentioned}

Birmingham are after bf from bpool not boro

Middlesbrough are back in for a creative winger on loan. birmingham are amongst a host of champo clubs after cameron jerome.

Mowbray has already stated that he has no interest in Fergusson he has surplus midfielders and that he had only a tentative interest last year



23 Oct 2012 12:35:56
Internazionale are looking to loan out Brazilian international midfielder Philippe Coutinho until the end of the season. 3 Premier Leagues are rumoured to be interested - Fulham being one of them. Coutinho, capped once for Brazil, impressed on loan for the 2nd half of last season at Espanyol. Coach Andrea Stramaccioni is kean to let the attacking midfielder leave to gain valuable experience. Martin Jol's side made an enquiry in the summer, along with Sevilla, Santos, Newcastle and Southampton.

What a signing that would be for fulham



23 Oct 2012 13:19:31
lukasz spendholfer is on test in reading fc

On test? Are you serious?

Who does he playfor

Yes on test,arrived this am,but have flu.will begin training in next days

On test for what exactly

He was in inter primavera.last season was one of the best in next gen

The player will go back in milano have flu ,will return next week.what a shame!

Come on you all know he means trial



23 Oct 2012 11:16:14
Doncaster are looking forward to January due to the fact that JR is allowing Dean Sanders the chance to improve his squad, this will include the signings of... Fabian Robert, Luke Oliver another 6 ft7 CB, Nicholas Yennaris loan, Connor Wickham loan and also the return of Mustapha Dumbuya and Iain Hume is going to be a free transfer as Graham Westley doesn't want him at the club!

Muzzy won't be going back to Donny. Pup.

Plenty ch'ship clubs in for wickham,aint going to lge 1

Great ! but who's going to pay their wages? Just one is Hume's strongly rumoured to be 7,000 a week ! and 2 years left on a secure contract.

I probably expect Hume to be loan for the rest of the season, then maybe free next year I can't see wickham coming to league 1 way too good, I'd like the see Robert back though

Evidently Hume on his recent trip to Canada stated he is keen to play there.

Robert is coming back to rovers



23 Oct 2012 09:56:20
Swindon manager Paulo Di Canio is wanting to add two players to the squad once their transfer embargo has been lifted.
The first is Bournemouth attacker Charlie Sheringham. The 24 year old is wanting to leave the South Coast club and could join Town on trial over the next few weeks.
The second deal that will happen is 21 year old Waris Majeed. The BK Hacken forward is set to leave his contract after njot being offered a new one and will sign a one and a half year deal at The County Ground.

Waris is far and beyond out of Swindon town's league by a long chalk

Get real mate

Not likely to happen 'charlie sherringham leaving bournemouth' , ever since his arrival he did well a few games and then was on long term injury list. Once he returns to playing then I expect eddie howe to give him a chance, as he is with every afcb player he's inherited. That will be the time when these rumours will start.

Charlie shereringham might be part of the package to bring swindon's matt richie to dean court. In the meanwhile sherringham remains long term in treatment room!

Matt Richie has already agreed terms over the deal that was agreed with Tom Mitchell and Swindon

Im a swindon fan and waris majeed is valued at a million euros our board wont pay that are board wont even pay 300,000 for a player

Why on earth would Di Canio want an unproven always injured forward? Serious question.

Charlie sheringham is not good enough for swindon, has paolo ever seen him?

Swindon are in financial dires straights so we will not be signing any players!

We are not in dire straights! What a load of twaddle!



23 Oct 2012 09:52:49
Derby manager Nigel Clough is keen on adding three players to the squad in January and will begin talks with clubs and players before Christmas.
Young Burton Albion forward Evan Garnett will sign a three ald a half year deal in the New Year and will continue the good relationship between the two clubs.
Another young forward subject of a bid from County is Charlton striker Adebayo Azeez. The 18 year old is regarded as having a top future at The Valley but may be swung to a move to Derby if more first team opportunities are offered.
The third and final player and yet another forward is Stuart Hendrie. The 22 year old is playing for non league Redditch and has played for Derby in a trial match two weeks ago. The former Hinckley player has played professional football with Morecambe.

Azeez is worth 2m minimum which you don't have so dream on!

If he is worth 2m then why is Jo nowhere near the first team even when we have three strikers out injured?

I'm not chris powell so don't ask me why he isn't in the team, maybe it's because we have fuller, Kermorgant, BWP, hulse then we have smith and even cook who can play striker, he is 7th choice ATM

Actually he is 8th choice as we also have danny haynes.

If he is 7th choice behind all those others then there's no way he can be worth 2m

Evan garnett looks like a good player and derby havent got the money to buy any one over a million i think if derby are going to be a prem side we need 20 million invested in the team but the american wont put the money in new owners please

I think Azeez's POTENTIAL value is 2 mill or more, but at the moment its not even 500k. He's not even started a game for the first team yet but he is an extremely good prospect for the future.



23 Oct 2012 09:20:16
Just seen Paul ince going into portman road in the back of a range rover.

Quick phone the police!

Lets hope it's not to take over the managment he is worse than jewell.

Yeah cos we really would interview Jewells replacement there when he's still in a job me thinks your a telling porkies.

Lol, i hear he has signed on to play in midfield for u

OMG - just like a scene from Goodfellas

Who will be doing the interview for Ince seeing as Evans was on holiday for last nights game.

Yes I can believe that - his positional tactics whilst Notts' manager wasn't too bright either!



23 Oct 2012 09:17:57
Wes Thomas is looking very likely to be back with Bournemouth after this weekend. Appleton is hoping to bring back Futacs from Leicester should this happen.

Eddie howe wants to look at all the bournemouth players, eddie has already said the 36 man squad is far to big and needs cropping. Eddie has also said that he wants to see every player so no doubt wes thomas will return to dean court. I would think wes thomas will demand good transfer fee in january if eddie howe decides to sell.



23 Oct 2012 08:34:01
Northern Monkey

The mistery striker Rotherham united are signing that was reproted in the sheffield star and radio sheffield is Adam Smith from Lincoln city the ex mansfield and chesterfield player. This is a massive scoop for Evans

Hes terrible haha

Wrong (again). Striker is a young play currently at a Championship Club.



23 Oct 2012 08:21:38
di canio to be named the new bolton manager shortly- mark my words you heard it here first, wee wise rab wwr

Ha ha maybe u should look on the swindon advertiser site for his comments on the future he has with swindon ,
I wish he would leave but he aint going anywhere yet

BUT when we win its all thanks to him



23 Oct 2012 08:20:46
Crystal Palace finally agreed to give Bolton permission to speak to Dougie Freedman after they had secured his replacement. The Palace Chairman spent yesterday in talks with Mick McCarthy who has agreed to become the new Palace boss. MM has a home in the south east and doesnt want to up root again.

Sorry going Burnley

I seriously hope not



23 Oct 2012 08:10:41
Everton to be taken over by a far east investor within 3 months and huge sums will be invested... this will put them alongside Man City in the money stakes, this will be a huge move and take Everton right to the top of world football!


The group are from HONG KONG and are fans of the game most of all D.moyes,who the group think with how astute he is in the market will get into europe and double the value of their investment.The club will be eventually floated on the hong kong stock market,D,MOYES will have then 200 million war chest to push for champions league glory.

Get ready to change your jersey colour to this is considered lucky in asia. Will be weird when you face liverpool.



23 Oct 2012 08:09:21
Karl Robinson has admitted he will try and dig into the loan market with many first team players out. Would be interesting to see who he can pick out? Perhaps give the trialists a go too-any word on who they r?



23 Oct 2012 08:07:20
Derek Minnnes has 3 game sto save his job he must get 6 points from tonights game at home to Burnley the away game at Hull and the home game against Huddersfield or city will look to a new man to get the club clear of relagation, after a year in charge City are in not much better postion than when mcinnes took over.
City are keen on Owen Coyle as a replacement should Mcinnes be sacked

What coyle better than mcinnis if he is sacked city need an experience manager who knows the league the city fans deserve more

^ coyle has won promotion from the championship b4 how does that not class as experience :s

Maybe but city need more experience then that

Cant even beat Peterborough. Lol. So much 4 your win over Wolves. Gota admit. We were rubbish wkend. U. T. W's!

So much for wins over Wolves, Birmingham (A), Blackpool (A), Burnley, Derby, Sheff Wed (A). Yes we were rubbish at Peterborough, so what, they deserved the win and good luck them.

We still beat you mate

To all the teams that beat bristol city warning the defeats will be revenged just remember city v rovers 0.2 defeat then we best them 4.2 so be warned



23 Oct 2012 03:40:48
Norwich City have firmly set their sights on signing Norwegian Hannover front man Mohammed Abdellaoue to bolster their attacking line and are preparing a January bid in the area of £4-6.5m for the vastly impressive striker

From a Very Reliable Source.

Makes me laugh things like 'vastly impressive', if he's that good he'd go to a top team not a future ch'ship team

Why does this make you laugh. We were linked with him all summer, he already has a a norwegian team-mate here, last time I looked we weren't in the relegation zone and have just beaten a top 4 side. Yes one game doesn't mean everything, but we matched spurs, ran Newcastle close, and drew with 3 other teams, having played several of the bigger prem teams so far. Future championship team, no its you and these sorts of comments that make me laugh!

Old dead in the water rumour stop aveing nightmares lo xx

Your source is stone cold xxxxxxx

Moa is injured at the time... Hes considering operation i his back. If this happens he will not be bought i tje january window.... unfortunatly :-) Hes a good player. Good for 15 goals!!

Absolute nonsense.



23 Oct 2012 00:40:13
Belarusian striker Leonid Kovel could be set for a move to England in January. The striker currently at Minsk is being scouted by League 1 outfit Carlisle.

I think this is unlikely Carlisle currently have 6 forwards, but this suits the Carlisle mould that if the striker never scores he is perfect.



23 Oct 2012 00:20:41
Derby County central defender Tom Naylor looks set to sign a 3 month loan deal with League 1 side Shrewsbury.

We need a striker bring back sawyers!!

Sawyers was useless, looked out of his depth in league 2! Need a proven goalscorer but naylor would be welcome to sort out our shakey defence

Sawyers wasnt that good in league two so i wouldnt hold to much hope, need a more prolific striker

Bring back Ryan Lowe
