24 Jan 2010 18:11:32
Just heard from a friend who knows players at Fleetwood Town FC.

Apparently, Anthony Barry signed for them because they are in a stronger financial position than Wrexham.

Wrexham are in trouble after a poor take–up of tickets for the Crusaders RL games (Wrexham and Crusaders split profits 50/50) and also have missed eight games due to the weather.

Chairman Geoff Moss is investing more in the Crusaders than Wrexham FC, and relying on fans and businesses to pay the players wages (Wrexham Supporters Trust are paying for Andy Manghan!)

Pity for Wrexham – seem a good side but have had some right numpties run err ruin them.


24 Jan 2010 18:13:32

Also City look set to Sign John Parkin with David Clarkson going the other way



24 Jan 2010 19:51:10
Nottingham Forest are ready to bid 1m to try get Wayne Thomas before the end of this month.
Wayne Thomas is a full–back, scored a wonder goal against Ipswich Town.

Southampton are also interested in Forest striker joe garner.


24 Jan 2010 19:53:55
Liverpool FC– Hunterlar deal could happen but not on loan. Ryan Babel to be sold to either Birmingham or Arsenal to finance a permanent deal for the striker.

No offer for Kenwyne Jones was ever made.

Also a deal for Chamackh has been thrased out but player still to decide where to move in summer. Will anounce this week.

If Chamackh turns reds down Raffa will turn to Jananovic, offer to this player has been made but is raffas 2nd choice. Both the above are Bosmans.

Raffa also chasing SPL full back but no deal currently done.

French midfielder Plessis will move to Italy in the window, possibly Ac milan but Juve also shown interest.

Reds will make at least one major signing in the summer, possibly two. Funds will be made availble plus more of the debt is to be paid down to pacify new investors. New stadium to start within months.

The next few years will be massive for this club, things aren't as dire as people think with Purslow confident of finding new investors and the club moving forward both on and off the field.

Cardiff City News:

Capaldi and Blake to leave for Leeds and Plymouth, respectively, on permanent deals.

Dennehy will sign for Hereford at the end of the season, with Taiwo going to Brentford or Wycombe.

Ledley still in two minds over a new deal – though he loves the club, he has fallen out with the fans. He is reported to have said that a few are 'toxic' and if Rangers or Celtic come in for him he will strongly consider any deal they put before him.

Adam Matthews will move on 1st February to Arsenal, after Aaron Ramsey convinced Wenger to sign him. The deal is structured, so Cardiff will get a down–payment of at least £2m plus further incentives (including a home friendly in July).

The biggest news of all, however, is off the field – where Cardiff have to pay HMRC debts by 10th February. The Steele takeover may/may not happen before that date, so Cardiff will have to sell in order to avoid administration.

There is also an unconfirmed rumour that a Norway–based individual is monitoring the goings on at Cardiff City Stadium, and may come in with a bigger offer for the club in June.


24 Jan 2010 16:13:27

LFC NEWS – Rafa and the owners agreed last summer that they would not buy any mediocre players. Instead they would wait until summer of 2010 to combine Alonso money plus last summer's budget together with this year's budget. That would enable Rafa to buy at least 1 big name player. Alonso money was not used to service debt. FACT. Fans will be delighted in the summer. Wait and see. (Also, I was right that Kenwyn Jones was just a smoke screen). Also just heard that Chamakh deal was done last Thursday.


24 Jan 2010 13:15:14
Villa summer outs

Craig Gardener 3–4 million birmingham
Habib Beye 1.5 million sunderland

Former Hearts player Bruno Aguair was seen leaving Easter Road Stadium on friday afternoon


24 Jan 2010 02:37:29
Hi everyone.

sad news for us rangers fans im afraid.

was in que getting ready to check into my flight down to london tonight and i seen kris boyd checking in for a flight to birmingham airport.

since im a rangers fan i went over to ask him what happening if he going this transfer window or what? he replied yes sadly, he said he wants to have a crack at the premiership.

he will leave this month for inbetween 1–1.8million.



24 Jan 2010 03:34:02
Rangers will lose Boyd, mendes, weir (retired), novo and Davis in the summer. The wage bill will be reduced with £5k/w bein the maximum. There is no money available for cash transfers or agents fees so the new manager will have to use bosmans and loan deals to fill the squad.
Dundee utd will avoid administration but only just. Any first team player who can attract a cash bid will be sold and due to tight financial constraints imposed by the bank players from the youth team will be promoted to replace them. The club believe relegation at the end of next season is very possible with a threadbare squad and this is the main reason there has been several departures from the boardroom.
This is all fact


24 Jan 2010 03:45:06
Heard that Forest Board won't be putting up any monies for Billy Davies and that Forest will be selling James Perch and Jo Garner but won't be making any purchases.. Down we go if its true..


24 Jan 2010 09:16:55
Wigan have signed Villareal striker Marco Ruben!!


24 Jan 2010 09:35:44
Blackpool struggling to sign players due to their refusal of paying more than 150k for their targets, forget the billy sharp and joe lewis rumors as sharp is valued at 2m and lewis 3m!
expect few loans but rule out danny wellbeck as he will only be allowed to move to preston north end if anywhere.


24 Jan 2010 10:08:04
I have heard from a good source Huntelaar will join Arsenal on a Loan/Permanent deal before the end of the week.Although Wenger has dismissed this in the past he has been in talks for almost a week.The deal will be a loan subject to a permanent signing they are just haggling about the future transfer fee at the moment.Also Adam Johnson to sign for Man City from Middlesbrough and be loaned back.


24 Jan 2010 11:16:20
" celtic signings " irish player kevin kilbane will sign for 400–500k, celtic will also put in another offer for st ledger if this fails they have looked at diamond [dons] as cover!

24 Jan 2010 12:13:09
In regruards to this below
Sunderland wanting ross wallace back you are having a laugth right he was bad when we got rid of him never mind wanting him back you off your head PAL.

23 Jan 2010 13:59:53
Hull and Sunderland to make bid for Ross wallace and Chaplow to go to WBA.
Man utd to get Modric in swap for anderson

Sunderland will not be wanting beckford from leeds to all you that are going on week in week out at best he is leauge one might score in championship if you lot ever get there.

Sunderland will not make any big deals this window like all other clubs yes we have the problems but the team is strong enougth without anyone else bruce is trying to see what he can do with the team he has and quinn will not waste money again like when roy keane was at sunderland he spent about £75 mil with the time he was at sunderland and very little still remain at the club.

Sunderland will try in the summer to bring in victor moses, adam johnson.

Last of all all the top prem clubs aint going to be buying new players in when the markets is like this there will wait and in the summer there will be off loading all the EU players at there own countrys as thhat new rule comes into place 6–5 rule so expect liverpool and man u to start with selling some top players i think.


24 Jan 2010 12:20:49

Im mates with Nigel Bond and he told me Walsall chairman wanted to be out by christmas 2009, this hasnt happened but he has had contact from a millionaire from Birmingham. I don't know his name as its kept confidential, but all I know is hes worth 24 million pound. He wants to buy the club and is willing to pay Bonser rent for the ground for a short period of time, he will then buy the ground later on.

Bonser said he WILL sell the club, but he will remain chairman until the end of the season. The sale of the club will then be finalised and the unknown buyer will take over the club.

The unknown is willing to buy the club for up to £8, 500,000.


24 Jan 2010 12:30:29

–After an impressive win in the FA Cup and a glimmer of confidence coming back into the team, DJ isn't going to rush into panic buying. However, Ben Steele is very close to completing a £40 million takeover, which will switch on the "green light" for transfers as DJ likes to call it. Darcy Blake was solid as a rock against Leciester so he will contend for the cm and rb role in the first team.
– Jay Bothroyd is going nowhere, same for ledley, chopra, burke and whittingham.
– Feeney and Wildig to be loaned out.
– Hopefully Quinn will be sold for 20p :)
– Brian Stock, Ben Watson, Georgias Samaras, Ben Woods, Daniel Cousin, Jason Koumas and Darren Pratley are all potential signings for DJ.
– Ledley to sign new contract after his double hip op.


24 Jan 2010 12:35:12
As his contract expires in the summer , Fc Leeds will have to say goodbye to the striker Jermaine Beckford, who is most likely said to sign a contract with Newcastle or Everton. One of the names which are discussed for his substitution is the former player of FC Hearts – Branimir Kostadinov. The bulgarian striker has a contract with the bulgarian team of Chernomorets Burgas at the moment. He has played 16 games and scored 6 goals for the past half–season and The Bulgarian Cup.


24 Jan 2010 00:33:38
Man utd summer moves



24 Jan 2010 01:01:09
Matt Tubbs is to have a medical at Swindon on Tuesday, ahead of a move to The County Ground.


24 Jan 2010 01:26:16
Celtic f.c

Celtic have wrapped up the deal to bring the big dane mortem duncan rassusmen for a fee of 1.75 million and he is on 12 k a week .
Sean st ledger to sign when celtic make a third and final bid to secure his signiture the bid will be 3 million up front plus 250 k in apearinces and also mark willson going to deepdale this will then come close to the 4.5m boro would have payed at the end of the season for the cb . Celtic will also wrapp up deals for two 18 year olds the first one being slane from motherwell and the other one being a nigerian middfeilder from sporting lisbon jay jay ocottcha has slated him as the african messi he will cost 1.5 m because he is in the last three months of his contract .



24 Jan 2010 01:38:19

Based on current form and the fact that Brighton have a game in midweek which could potentially open up an unbridgable points gap, Oldham's owners have given Dave Penney until the Brentford game to save his job.
If no victory is forthcoming, he will be sacked and replaced by Jim Gannon.


23 Jan 2010 22:58:15
Hi all,

Stopped reading this site after the summer but i've been checking it often now that West Ham have been taken over by the Brady Bunch and there is "money available"

So come on folks, Hammers rumours please!! (And none about Van Nistelrooy or Huntelaar as a i read in the paper the other day)!



23 Jan 2010 23:06:39
Who said this?
"Rangers left back/winger Whittaker is on Rafa Benitez's radar after kenny daglish recommended rafa look at him, with 2 goals at the weekend he is looking at around 4m for him at the most."
he is a right back you fool and second choice for some reason behind the terrible kirk broadfoot so he is filling in in midfield if that's who liverpool are targeting they must be desperate
suppose they are though when was the last time they won the league
gourcuff in at old trafford soon they wanted him this summer but may try to push it through early to help the title challenge 24million euros



23 Jan 2010 23:11:48
Koren, Rassmussen to sign on tuesday, Curtis Davies to sign on loan by wednesday/thursday and celtic to sign st ledger friday. Celtic to try get in another player by end of january rumoured to be Benni McCarthy


23 Jan 2010 23:14:34
Just seen david kelly(forest) driving to carrington


23 Jan 2010 23:15:31
Notts. County to go into administration within the next two weeks.

There's no investment, and the club are living on false dawns and falser promises.

Heard that the entire squad could be up for sale by next weekend, in order to fend off HMRC action.

Also, some members of the club staff have not received their wages on time. I know this, as my Mother works at Meadow Lane and her wages for January have been deffered until next month.

The club is a mess – Trembling and co. want shooting! Bring back JAH all's forgiven!


23 Jan 2010 23:44:17
John Parkin, Matt Hill and Warren Feeney will all join Bristol City this week. Further departures (both loan and permanent) will follow.


23 Jan 2010 23:45:12

Paul Rachubka is being given a run in the team in an attempt to increase his value before being shipped out before the end of the month. He may be offered as a makeweight in a deal to bring Joe Lewis in from Peterborough.

Defensive cover is wanted by Ian Holloway. Dan Shittu has been looked at, but it depends whether he returns from the African Cup of Nations in time to discuss a move. Wages may also be a sticking point.
A bid (75, 000+ add–ons) has also been put in for Garry Kenneth, but Dundee United may be demanding too much for the centre half.

Midfielder Cover is also needed. Blackpool have made another loan bid for Jay Emmanuel–Thomas, but it seems unlikely that he will return after being named on the bench for Arsenal first–team games. Arsenal may let him out if they sign anyone themselves.

The forward line is seen as the weak point of the team. However, Holloway won't spend huge fees on anyone. Players such as Billy Sharp and Simeon Jackson have been rumoured, but won;t happen because Holloway doesn't think they will fot his formation, in which he wants a target man rather than a small, pacey striker. He has scouts throughout Europe, as well as in the Americas, however most bids and discussions have been rejected. Any transfers from abroad would most likely have been concluded by now, if they were to happen.

Overall, there seems to be a lot of 'ifs', 'buts' and 'maybes', so it is doubtful that any deals will be concluded. IF they do, it will most probably be in the last day or two of the window.


23 Jan 2010 23:51:24
Scout Ted Davies at the SWFC v Peterboro game today. Not sure who he is or what team, but he was definitely there


23 Jan 2010 23:52:07
Everyone can stop with the Ruud Van Nistelrooy rumours now. He has signed a 1 & half year deal at Hamburg.

Man Yoo looking at options for the Left Midfield and Center Midfield positions. No one will sign this month, but signings will happen in the summer after the world cup.

– Pjanic & Hamsik are being looked at for the Center Midfield position. Both are young up–coming talent that are seen as a cheaper but good enough replacement for Paul Scholes.

– Arda Turan & David Silva are the ones being looked at for the Left Midfield position. Silva would be the better one but also could cost a bomb. Turan is only 22 and has great potential to be the succesor of Ryan Giggs in the future.

United as many may of heard have took another loan which will obviously make matters worse in the debt situation in the future. The reason they have done this is so they can afford the extra £50,000 a week that Rooney has claimed to have wanted if he is to sign a new contract. If Rooney signs the contract extension (5 years more which takes him up to 2014) at United, he will become the new United skipper next season as he has proved he is capable of playing that role and SAF admires him for it.

A goalie is also needed desperately. Foster is really bad and could be on the move anyway and Kuzszak isn't good enough to be the succesor of EVDS. Jussi Jaskelinen I believe has been linked with a move to Old Trafford along with Hugo Lloris & Rene Adler aswell.

My source claims that United team after summer will look something like this:
GK – Jussi/Lloris/Adler
RB – Rafael/O'Shea
CB – Ferdinand/Evans
CB – Vidic/Brown
LB – Evra/Fabio
RM – Valencia/Park
CM – Pjanic/Hamsik/Anderson
CM – Carrick/Fletcher/Gibson
LM – Turan/Silva/Nani
ST – Rooney/Welbeck/Macheda
ST – Berbatov/Owen/Diouf
