2 premiership teams have enquired about Gary Hooper today after hearing Celtic more willing to sell him for right price if Rangers sell topscorer Jelavic #GoalMachine(4)(30)The fact that uv put #goalmachine next to jellyfish name shows ur a desperate rangers fan hoping Celtic sell hooper but knowing it won't be happening. Here's a couple 4 u ... #wishfulthinking #celticforthetreble ;)Rangers need to sell Celtic don't, that the difference, we sell if we get the right money, rangers sell if they get close to an evaluation to anyone. tax man is comingSad deluded Rangers fan crapping himself about what is to come in the next few months.

By the way
Jelevic 14goals(5pens)
Hooper 12goals (0pens)

So who is the best Striker?Reason hooper has no penalties is cause he usually misses themCeltic fans should get a life Jelvics is the best striker in scotland and if hooper is worth 35mil does that make jel worth 50mil as he scores more goals and sets up more goals. Look at the clubs that r afte big jel they r all premier legue quality and the once that are after hooper are all championship quality rangers for the titleI thought it was West Ham after Jelavic and Southampton after Hooper, last time I checked both championship teams and Southampton look more likely to go up.

23 Jan 2012 23:17:20
Wigan due to complete double transfer of nicky maynard from bristol city and jean beausejour from birmingham for 2 mil and 4 mil
Coming from a very disapointed birmingham fan well good lick beausejour be bak in the championship next year your greedy (7)(7) 

Source at BCFC stated that no bids have been made by Wigan and that it was likely to be agent talk. Maynard does apppear to be content to run his contract down and was dropped for the last home game.I got nothing against Wigan but Maynard stated he wants Prem Football, well he is only going to get 6 months of it at wigan, they look pretty certain to go down in my opinion, he might as well sign a new Bristol contract or sign for a Championship side that have a good chance of promotion.Can't blame Beusejour for moving to a bigger club...Both are happening, contract talks today.

Leicester to sign snodgrass after talks broke down(1)(25)Why would king jump at the chance to join cov when he clearly ditched them for birmingham where he is playing wel and scoring goals for promotion chacera he would not be intersted in a championship relegation scrap for a terrible side with a clueless managerThis is utter rubbish, why would king leave a side challenging for promotion for a side in a relegation battle.

23 Jan 2012 21:29:00
Jelkovic to sign for West Ham for £7.2m in the next 48hrs.(12)(34)Its true mate , unless a other team comes in....Different to what his Father is saying. West Ham aren't good enoughWhos jelkovic?Who's west ham?We knocked £9 million back from Liverpool already in the summer.So why would we accept less?And why would he want to play in the championship?When Chelsea,QPR are looking at him to.AllyDo you belive what the papers or people say , i don.t its who pays the most money and wages,,, liver poo have enough playersCome on really he plays in Scotland ur b lucky to get 3 million for him would rather have Billy sharpe COYIHe wants a move to Liverpool. {Ed003's Note - So do I,and my dad does aswell }Liverpool have never bid for this player, westham bid 7.25m is so far the biggest offer.The so-called bids for him in the summer were a fabrication, and it has been proven.

the truth is, whyte NEEDS 10m to survive, hence the reason he made up those bids, so that in this window he could TRY to justify an inflated asking price for him.

the problem is, everyone knows rangers are skint and will pay what they think they can get him for, after all, there's hardly a rush for his signature is there?Cant believe roasters like you actually believe the lies that you knocked back £9mill. How could Rangrs POSSIBLY knock back money when your howlin in debt and gonna end up HMRC United!!Big waste of money for them! they are paying 7.2 mill for a guy who scored 1/4 or 1/3 of goals from the spot by refs who always looks to give a penatly to rangersChelsea want jelavic?lol no chanceId rather have Hooper than Jelavic anydayEven though there were many teams lonked woth a bid west ham are the only team to make a bid this transfer window and it was leicester that made the bid last time not liverpoolFunny to see all the daft cellic fans on about a rangers rumour ! 7.2 million , yip fair price sell him and move on, few bargains out there, rapid Vienna guy looks good for 500k, billy sharp if ally gets 1/2 the money backDo u mean jelavic?? get it right


23 Jan 2012 21:12:19

Dyche is usually quite quiet until he sells...Might be a few going to CardiffWatford are to sign Ryan allsop from millwall for an undisclosed feeHe wont be going there, he's far too good to be stuck in Watford reserves.Neil Collins is supposedly going to watford for 250k

Get back on football manager son!No heskey join sunderland we need you


23 Jan 2012 20:37:35
a few days ago i said cortese would noy spend money on good experienced players and got called ignorant blah blah blah so far tonight i ve been proved right no decent cover for injuries suspensions unless he gets the checque book out quick saintsaint going nowhere this year only themselves to blame(6)(2)Too true mate no real ambitionThe thing is though we have all those players back for saturday plus lee so stop whining and booing (which I thought was disgraceful) and get behind the lads were looking to get players in.No pleasing some people, 2nd in the League...!!
Week to go yet!!Stop whinging, get off your backside and support your team. Alternatively go and give your Chelsea and United shirts a wash.


23 Jan 2012 20:34:36
Watford are after at least two wingers. Ryan Hall has been touted but haven't heard anyone mention Watt or Cox.(5)(4)Ryan Hall isnt for sale.Mate being a Watford fan I know this a player not being up for sale doesn't mean he isn't going to leave, if the right offer comes in, he'll be off.There isnt a right offer, the club dont want to sell, Hall wants to stay?

No hard is it.Why wouldn't a League two player want to go to a Championship club? Not far away either. Southend might be League 1 next season but he'll still be a division lower....assuming we're not relegated.


23 Jan 2012 20:33:53
A seasoned journalist has said if Forest lose Lewis McGugan they will make a late dash for Ryan Hall of Southend as a reinforcement. But only if McGugan is sold.

And Southend have rejected without question a paltry offer of £60,000 for Bilel Mohsni from Doncaster Rovers.(4)(4)Hall isnt for sale.

So Forest can look elsewhere.


23 Jan 2012 20:33:37
Southampton will not sign any of the names that they have been "linked" with on this site.
Rhodes will go to a mid table premier league side, but not until the summer.
It is well documented that saint's transfer dealings are done behind closed doors, without media interference.
What I can tell you is that their promotion bid will falter, i've been a saints fan for too many years for any of this new found optimism. We will finish 6th and fall at the first play-off hurdle as we simply do not have the depth of squad to be genuine contenders. Case in point; Daniel Harding playing at right back, playing at all in fact. Oh dear.(19)(3)Well said mate, but try7/8th.Your obviously not really a Saints fan so who is the team that you support but are too embarrased to mention?In all honesty you look a poor side after watching that poor excuse for a game last night. Paolo Di Canio Swindon would play you off the park.


23 Jan 2012 20:28:45
is this the same southampton who are lookn st and gettin humped 2-0 by leicester(not even half time yet), good luck in your ambitions for the epl lmao bet u wish ye had hooper now! ssshhhh(13)(7)Is this the same southampton still on course for the epl ? oh yeah
why let comments like this onto a "transfer rumours" page ed? {Ed003's Note - It should have been placed on banter,please accept our apologies }Southampton would be very bad if they go up i think only Adam Lallana could play in the prem and have not much money to strengthen but they have a good mangerWonder which team the MUG that wrote this supports bet there not on track to be in the prem! and Saints dont have much money to spend??? get your facts right!Hopper would have been no bloody good. He couldn't even score against St MirrenI think owners that are renowned for being tight with their money, but have still put bids in for players at £6-7million a pop .. shows that there is money to spend! not that it was open for debate anyway ... its just a fact !
and last time i looked, southampton were 2nd in the league and had been in the top 2 since the start of September ? so thats not on course ... REALLY ?! DO YOU KNOW HOW THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE SYSTEM WORKS ? your the only MUG mate, and jealousy is a sad sad thing.Lol we do have the money, idiot, just wont pay these over inflated prices from financially dippy clubs. SPL is a league that contains two average teams, and clearly havent worked out financial worth yet. Good luck with that treble, as the SPL will be the only thing you win.


23 Jan 2012 20:19:57
Bournemouths Jayden Stockley will go out on loan to Swindon to gain more first team experience after a successful spell last year with Acrington Stanley. Deal will be done once Bournemouth get a new striker on board.......... Believed to be Leeds Billy Paynter(5)(11)

23 Jan 2012 20:12:52
Reading are set to tie up the signing of impressive young Brentford centre back Karleigh Osbourne on a 3 year deal.

Reading are also in talks with Jason Roberts about a loan until the end of the season.

Reading have bid £1.85m for Doncaster Rovers hotshot Billy Sharp, activating the release clause in his contract.

Sharp rejected a 20k a week move to Leicester after having talks with Nicky Hammond at Reading last week, believing he has a better chance of regular first team football at Reading, as they plan to build a team around him and challenge for promotion next season.(9)(9)3million nrelease clause fact3 million lol...thats no fact....leicester had 1.85m bid accepted as well...billy hasnt signed new contract @ donny so release clause ent gonna have changed...some ppl ent got the foggiest...

LcFc 4 life

Cardiff City linked with a move for Adel Taarabt and a new bid for Matt Phillips(1)(26)Taarabt you got 15 million ha pmslAdel Taarabt - No. He's staying at QPR
Matt Phillips - just had a 500k bid rejectedActually Vincent Tan is a billionaire so yes£500k for a real stong bid from Cardiff....What next.... £1m for Messi2 million for Phillips and The tower and 2 donkeys included thenConsidering Matt Phillips is 20 and signed from Wycombe for £325k, I'd say £500k is a fair bid.

23 Jan 2012 18:12:49
Got to say I would be shocked if they pull this one off but today I've heard it is a possibility Stoke City will try and snap up Leighton Bains and Tim Cahill for a combined £20million plus Ricardo Fuller ! If they pull it of fair play they are a small team gradually making a name for themselves.(16)(19)Try all they want, but lets face it baines is the best attacking LB in world football! really name someone better, the guy is irreplaceable and would only go for at min 25 million + and as for cahill, i want him to stay but he's 34 now and as much as i love him, everyone has there price...What a load of carp, Baines had one of the highest assists last season in the Prem, not bad for a LB, Everton will want at least £20m for him alone.Not taking sides because personally I don't see it happening! However people seem to be over estimating the price tag Baines has... First things first very few teams will pay 20+ million for a fullback, onto the next point Everton are cash strapped like they have been for many years and could be forced by the board to accept offers in the region on 12-15million!


23 Jan 2012 17:55:12

Cardiff City have had a bid turned down in the region of 500K for Blackpool winger Matt Phillips. Cardiff are expected to go back in with an improved offer(12)(10)The Lad cost £350k from Wycombe + add ons that will take this to over £500k. He's tearing a hole in Championship defences, cemented a place in the England Under 20's and has prem teams offering Blackpool £millions for his services.......and Cardiff offer £500k.......Stupid is... as stupid does

Can't see dafoe going to stoke lets be honest. baines and cahill maybe as when you look at the stats stoke are currently the better team.

stoke still owe 4.5m for jones. Dont think theres any truth in that as stoke are one of few clubs that arn't in debt.

however they do play a longball game so the majority of the players won't fit in unless pulis radically changes his tactics.

baines worth 20mill alone yeh just like bale is worth 140mill.

can see one or two deals been made on deadline day for stoke but not the likes of dafoe.(14)(11)Do you mean Defoe?Yeh mate baines is worth 20 mill his work ethic, assits and goals for a left back! Name one other left back with them qualitys but most of all ive never seen baines have a bad game in over 3 seasons, if he played for chelsea or man utd he'd be worth 40mill FACT!Shows how much some people know Stoke not a long ball team yes they kill
Sides off in air and yes do play odd long ball but they are a old fashioned English side big strong defence wingers ball winner in mid and old fashioned centre forward not a Stoke fan but a fan of football just cos it not pass pass pass don't mean it not a way to win games maybe if England team had a bit more old fashion fight and was stronger we would do more ! And now you all going to jump on saying i talking rubbish, but playing that way is what made us good trying to change the way we play to suit how people think game should be played is what has cost usAgree with the guy above, the English game was always strong fast and furiouse! Until teams like United, Chelsea and Arsenal started buying johnny foreigners our game never revolved around passing! That's why we are rubbish at every major tournament because we try and match the likes of Spain, Argentina and Brazil... Look at the better England players:- Rooney, Gerrard, Terry, Zamora, Crouch all big strong blokes with good technical ability... However they are not pass and move masters who play slick football so let's play a more direct way and possibly results will be better !In what world is baines NOT worth 20 million +, there is no better attacking LB in the world, and he is amaizing defencively too, 5th most creative player in europe last season as wellStrangely enuf as a mad Stoke fan, I don't believe the Dafoe rumours, however, I was at the new wayfarer in stone and Tony Pulis was there with Peter Crouch and Defoe. Sitting behind them PC was explaing about places to rent and local restaraunts so, u Neva knowYes it's all true, baines to stoke and l. messie to everton. yep, that works for me, but only if i have been smoking the same st as you. stoke have about as much chance of gettig baines,as i have of getting a blow job from kate moss.Jermaine Defoe or Willem Dafoe? Heard he's got quite the hollywood pass on him...

Peterborough United Midfielder George Boyd could be on his way to Leeds in a fee reported to be around 750K(18)(20)At 750k your having a laugh! Will never happen at that price. 1.5 or 2m.Great player, but that signing would show a little too much ambition for us, in my opinion.
wally750k!! CMS 3.25m, Boyd is worth at least 3m. This rumour is a joke!!You based Boyd's price at £3M saying CMS cost £3.25M
CMS was a wind up by Fry blowing up his value, only Brighton fell for it... lets face it CMS has hardly set the world alight this season.Agreed. Boyd is worth 2.5 - 3.5M. Bates would never sanction a 750k purchase regardless

In England his agent would be waiting that villas boas is sacked...

We're short of fullbacks- so Owen won't let him leave!Boro have 2 right backs , both out of contract at end of season , hoyte and mcmahon , if owen is after taking one of them ,probably hoyte ,it would be a good move for both clubs,£1 million plus loan signing to boro.

It's common knowledge down in reading that even before the investment he was dead weight and is going to be sold.Brian Howard as as said he would love a return to Barnsley as he as unfinished business there. But can,t see it been till next season as i think he as just signed another loan deal with millwall.

Champs Lge or stays @ FulhamAn EXCELLENT move should villa do so.Villa don't have the moneyWhat a load of rubbish dempseys going knowhere not even too a carp club like villaI know dempsey as i live in America and he says that he isn`t moving from Craven Cottage

Tubbs to Swindon before the end of this week. Though the official line will be "Undisclosed amount" town are paying over the top for a second div player....however Swindons Di Canio appears to be building a squad for back to back promotions and believes the price tag will be justified in time. Swindons Chairman backing him to the hilt, though the signings made so far are more than covered by last season sales.(9)(17)Cant see us signing Tubbs this rumour has come from a Taxi driver in swindon and they are notorious for getting stories wrong plus i cant see Crawley selling to us as we are now onlt 3 points behing them after clawing our way back when we were 12 points behind for ages.
i heard it was a L1 player coming driver I am NOT!! nor do I use them! however this has come from a quite reliable source. The deciding factor now is whether Tubbs wants to go!! Certain members of the press close to both clubs are aware...however they are agreeing to remain quiet until things are agreed one way or the other...this is due to both clubs having recently being publically knocked back by potential signings.Cant see it im afraid. Financially a non starter and Tubbs is being touted by bigger clubs. I have a bad feeling that Di Canio is going to lose the plot soon and big trouble aheadSwindon wouldnt sign Tubbs if our lives depended on it!!

And the Di Canio express just keeps on going....all you lots slagging him, will marvel at his achievments in the forthcoming years well beyond the time he spends at Swindon, then you'll all look really foolish.......well you already do, buy hey..........who cares!!Di canio loses the plot every week at the side of the pitch, as a Swindon fan I LOVE IT, the guy is a legend

QPR are looking to sign Kenwyne Jones from Stoke City.

Jones was the Potter's top scorer last season but his game time has been limited following the big-money arrival of Peter Crouch in the summer.

New QPR manager Mark Hughes knows that he needs to bring in fresh blood to boost the clubs survival hopes and Jones is on his radar.(14)(21)


23 Jan 2012 14:30:24
Queen's Park Rangers have approached Tottenham over the availability of England striker Jermain Defoe.

Defoe himself has already publicy stated his desire for first team football ahead of selection for the forthcoming European Championships and Rangers would be prepared to grant him his wish in addition to matching his current wages.

Liverpool had also enquired about the striker's current situation at Spurs but Defoe is more likely to accept an offer from a London-based club.

Although QPR are very interested, it remains to be seen whether Tottenham are willing to part with a striker who recently scored against Manchester City and a player who they believe can still play a major part in the games towards the end of the season.(10)(15)Lol qpr are been linked to everyone and sign no1Defoe DOES want first team football, but not with a two bit club like QPR.....sorry.Qpr championship team with championship players go back where u belong

Southampton are willing to bid 10 million for Jordan Rhodes in the last week of the window as Nigel Adkins is convinced that Rhodes would score 20 a season in the PL.

Huddersfield are believed to be willing to knock back this huge offer.

The club are also willing to call Jason Puncheon's bluff and make him train in solitude until his contract is up after an outburst against the club on twitter on Saturday evening.(15)(26)All a load of nonsense.You really are having a laugh 10 million for a L1 player plus you have got to the premier league yet and personally i dont think you will, a long way to go. So far all the forwards the mighty Saints were going to sign hasnt materialised.

I wish you lot would get out of cuckoo land as you are really annoying me with all your rubbish stories.We'll never bid 10 million for 1 player even if we get to the prem. As for Puncheon the sooner we gid rid the better.The more it annoys you the more people will do it. Don't bite idiotYou lot are a load of idiots and dreamersSounds like more fishy mischief from down the M27.
Saints will almost certainly sign a loan forward.....maybe Jason Roberts. We'll have Lee starting soon and Lambert back, so plenty of options. The clever buyers wait 'till summer.I love when people make up southampton rumours, other sides' fans seem to be really jealous of their recent revival.

I hope southampton go up just to see what becomes of this place (As long as its not at Cardiff's expense lol)20 goal a season in the PL? shouldn't he probably try to get 20 in the championship first? as i recall strikers such as Drogba and Tevez have failed to get 20 in the PL half the time :')

barnsley to sign gary gardner on loan with korey smith on a 2 year deal and ben tozer
ap white(13)(13)Who is gary gardener do you mean craig if not who does he play forNot a chance gardner has just broke in the villa team now so thats not happening.He has just broken into the Villa 1st team after being recalled early from a previous loan. He had a better game than older, established players on saturday and Alex Mcleish has sounded him out as an integural part of his plans. Villa fans have been pushing for him to start and raving about his last couple of appearances. No offence to Barnsley but shut up!Which great football club are these from?Gardener aston villa
smith norwich
tozer northampton
hope this helpsGardner is complete class, he's expected to be one of the top midfielders in the country and finally will be given his chance to break through this year. delph has gone on loan so no chance of him leaving now. as For Korey Smith, hes been injured for 6months therefore needs games, he's expected to be sent out on loan

It's probably true, all the clubs in Qatar are willing to pay a ridiculous amount of money for a player. He's a good player but certinly not worth £15 mil!Just said he is staying because of Mark Hughes coming in. BBC

jelavic to stoke city for 7 millon and ricardo fuller to go the other way(11)(32)Why would any class act, even consider going to stoke ?Maybe because Stoke are financially secure with no debt, currently 8th in the PL and still playing in the Europa Cup. Their style plays to their strengths and doesn't appeal to many, but it's effective in getting results and fair, so what's the problem ? Pathetic comments about anti-football and rugby teams are usually from those jealous of Stoke's success or complete idiots who adopt the "I want my team to play attractive football, even if it means poor results" stance. The game is results driven - ask Neil Warnock. No-one remembers teams who play nice football but get relegated or achieve nothing !

Lewis Dunk - Brighton
Bojan - Roma
Clint Dempsey - Fulham
Bobby Zamora - Fulham(8)(28)What a load of rubbishAston Villa are cutting funds all round the club from academy to first team..
No money will be made now or indeed the summer.. Villa are struggling.Cloud cuckoo land mate.I'm a Villa season ticket holder and what a load of rubbish. Lerner doesn't give a toss about the club anymore why would he give McClueless any "Substantial" transfer pot? He is hopefully planning to sell us..the sooner the betterAnt they wouldnt get any1 of themDunk ,morrison & dann is the only possible one.
villa have had a bad reputation ever since selling young & downing and losing Houllier.
but, villa are improving every week & failing/struggling is not the right word & mcleish is doing a good job for what he has!Im a villa fan and think eck is doing ok for what he has,remember oniel jumped ship with alot moreSo bojan who moved to roma in the summer is going to leave in january, if your gonna start rumours make them semi-belivable atleast

Huddersfield are looking at Matt Briggs from Fulham as a replacement for Gary Roberts who is having a hernia operation tomorrow and is out of contract at the end of this season. If Lee Novak moves to Reading which now seems likely - Jamie Vardy or Matt Tubbs may well come in - but only if Novak leaves. Northampton midfielder Michael Jacobs is due tomorrow for a medical and has agreed three and a half year deal - a fee in the region of 400k has been agreed.(6)(12)If the rumours are to be believed we are in for ben marshall from stoke who has refused the contract that has been offered,but we have mcdermott to slot in there who hasnt really had a look in with the form of ward cads and roberts
town wont sell novak we have three forards at the club and he is clarks favourite player being a fellow geordie so cant see it at allBriggsy is rumoured to be going on loan somewhere, but you have no chance of a permanent signing. He's better than Smalling was at this stage and he went to Man Utd for £12m

Bryher PilgrimNo chance is he going to southamptonLmao, ok, yes if he is a new AOC, then he could go to another club higher up, but a plymouth fan dictating where he will go? LOL. Have you not realised you cant choose? You need the money and wont even be in the football league in 6months, so im sure he would much rather come here what hes already gotHaha! We have stated that he aint going. He would on go to PL. Not everyone wants to go to Southampton, and fade away in there youth set up. He is born and bred Plymouth and would rather first team football. And we do not need any money!! Shows your ignorance. And we arent out the football league. Grow up! Not everyone wants to go to Southampton. We can choose, get a gripHave plymouth got anyone whose worth money you having a laughIf im not mistaken im pretty sure a few years ago southampton had no money problems and needed some rich foreigner to come a bail them out! or ami wrong? no i dont think so!!But we got a rich foreigner? your point seems convoluted and pointless, just like your season. SHAZZAAAMWe dont have a rich foreigner!!!As an argyle fan I can see him going if a decent bid comes in from anyone, but you can't compare him to oxlade-chamberlain, they are 2 completely different players, chamberlain is a midefielder and leciote is a striker for a start and he hasn't got the work rate of AOC!

I dont think any of our players want to go but you couldnt blame them if their heads were turned by a top six side.
Local rumours are talking about Vorm. Williams, Dyer, Allan and sinclair..(apparently Liverpool want to buy Half our side! LOL)

You Heard anything with any foundation? {Ed001's Note - I don't believe Liverpool are in for any of them, in January, but the summer could be a very difficult one for Swansea. I really don't expect much movement out or in from Swansea now.}(2)(9)


23 Jan 2012 10:10:34
Brighton hoping to confirm the signing of Sam Vokes from Wolves this week. Initially a loan with the potential to buy in the summer if all parties are happy. Agreeing the fee is what is taking time.
Jara Reyes will sign from West Brom next week and Brighton are also talking to Newcastle about taking Tavernier on loan until the end of the season but Gus is less convinced as there is no prospect of making that deal permanent later on. He could look again at Daniel Lafferty but Derry want too big a fee @ £150K(10)(12)Tavernier is class would do really well at BandH


23 Jan 2012 09:54:07
Swansea City are not selling vorm, dyer or sinclair ...

Dobbie is going out and a few youngester are going out on loan ...(20)(5)

23 Jan 2012 10:03:54
Marc Pugh will join Watford next week with Michael Bryan going the other way to Bournemouth on a free transfer.

Pugh is not moving at all as he said he is considering his new contract and no decision will be made to the end of the season as he wants chapionship football and if we get promoted he will most probaby stay(3)(9)Ha - the naivety of youth - "i am just thinking about my options" is code for - "my agent is on the case"True but AFCB not interested in the Watford player. Too lightweight. Cash only and the fee demanded is higher than RitchieHeard a fee is nearly agreed. One lump sum followed by an additional fee relating to appearances at a later date and a sell on percentage. Whichelow was to go on loan in the opposite direction but Bournemouth have their own targets.

23 Jan 2012 08:32:52
Everyone think Pompey are finished but trust me within the next couple of days they will have new owners and then they will sig the following players.

Matt Ritchie Swindon 1.5 million
Mattock WBA loan rest of season
Abdul Razak loan rest of the season
Luciano Becchio 2.5 million(4)(42)How can you know there will be new owners in a couple of days before the transfer window shuts in a week, i would of thought due diligence would be more important, with the history of the club.With all due respect Pompey had the only Arab they could find who didnt have any money then it was the Russian who was an arms dealer so what s the next owner going to be?What's the posters name here? Peter Kay! You need to be on the stand up tour your so funny!! The only thing Pompey will sign this week are bouncing cheques!Signing all these players eh ? what with copper washersWhat planet are you on!!!Best post of the day this rumour, well when I say best I mean funniest....Ken Bates would probably accept a few copper washers for becchio.You will definitely be selling this week as you need the money, and there's more chance of Wigan winning the premiership than Pompey getting new owners before the window shuts, But i hope Pompey do find buyers, good ones as they are a decent team, and the fans dont deserve all this crap that's gone on with the club PUPI only wish it were true. Right now I would settle for new owners and not having to sell half the players we already have.


23 Jan 2012 08:30:44
Hi Ed. Any Derby County rumours? {Ed013's Note - Just that you are looking at getting a loan signing midfielder in just in case Paul Green Leaves}(5)(8)

De rossi to city by midweek.Not the most original rumour,but city to finally get it done.(17)(11)


23 Jan 2012 08:19:54
I feel I need to clear things up for other fans regarding the Reading FC investment.

TSI and Sir John Madjeski have signed Heads of Agreement regarding a £40m purchase of 51% of the club. They are not taking over just yet they are just investing. The investment may lead to a buy out eventually. The deal is not due to be completed till the end if march as the deal us currently going through the process of due dilligance where the investors come in and make sure what has been advertised to them is what they are getting.

The investors have promised transfer funds for this window but we will not be buying everyone going. I doubt we will buy Rhodes as Huddersfield seem to think he is worth £5-6 million which is ridiculous. We may bring in a couple of players but I doubt we will do anything spectacular as that's not the Reading way.

I hope thats cleared things up. If you wish to check facts please see the official Reading website.(12)(3)It was also stated "Limited funding", i cant see them investing much, especially the likes of billy sharp i've been hearing. If leicester cant pay his wages of 47k, i doubt reading canTwo points: First of all I am not a Leicester, Reading or huddersfield fan, coment 1 is in the current market I dont think 5 million is a million miles off for Rhodes, it maybe payable in instalments or with add ons but if AOC was worth 10M then whats wrong with 5M for a striker with Rhodes record this year?, and before you say it i disagre, there isnt a massive gulf between league 1 and the chanmpionship, the same as there isnt a big difference between the championship and the bottom half of the premier league, when I hear some of the figures coming from Championship clubs for their players I always have a little giggle, e.g. maynard from Bristol city rated at 3M apparently!, out of contract soon and scored about 8 Goals in the league this year, yeah right!.

Second point I reckon that Billy sharps agent is the best in the Buisness if he negotiated him a 47k a week deal and his Chairman wants to be sacked!, he`s lovely little player but to me (only my opinion) he still doesent quite get in the top bracket of strikers outside the Prem (Rhodes does by the way!) and in my opinion you would have to be in at a wealthy club and one of the strikers that prem clubs are sniffing around to be worth it, billy is not.

Lastly I know my speeling is poor but if thats all you can comment on then you probably cant put up an argument on most of my other points...

Bobby DazzlerPeople see pound signs and go crazy.Just 4 the record HUDDS TOWN have "NEVER" put a price on RHODES, all they have said is he's "NOT 4 SALE" JORD & the rest of the team are worth 1 thing to HUDDS, PROMOTION, So u can blame everybody else 4 RHODES value5-6 Million for Rhodes in not ridicoulous he won't go to Reading anyway...5-6 Million for Rhodes in not ridiculous

It is for a league 1 striker. (I am not saying he can't make the step up but at the moment that's what he is until he gets the chance to prove otherwise.)Been a few over the years walcott chamberlain delph to name a few who went for a combined fee of 29m so for a player who is scoring more than a goal a game this season scored more than anyone in europe and has two under 21 hatricks then as a town fan rose tinted glasses i know he is worth as much as chamberlain but as with ant player he will be sold eventually for what a club hinks he is worth remember the lad is on peanuts so a club could offer him 25-30 k a week and he would be more than happy the transfere fee in that case would be irrelivent in retraspect
but as our owner and manager have stted he is not for saleIs it just me or am i missing some sort of legal adjustment here?

if someone is "investing" a certain amount, and owns over 50%, then the investment becomes a majority shareholding, which in turn becomes a buy out, therefore ownership.

unless i missed the memo, this is either complete B$, or i should go back to school {Ed003's Note - Good point,are they a plc ? maybe some posters could solve this one ?? }


23 Jan 2012 08:02:18
Matt Ritchie at Swindon is going no where until the summer, unless a club comes in with a bid well over 1 million, I am not saying he is worth that but, its the chairmans evaluation of him, he also showed his committment by staying in the summer when he could have moved on, all of last years failures were asked to committ to the club or go, which saw Mcgovern, Douglass, Dossevi,Perricard, Rose, Cuthbert, Prutton, Sheehan, Lucas, Benyon, jean francois all show their real colours and jump ship.

PDC has the full backing of the club and will sign a forward this week that nobody will expect....(16)(4)Well said that man im fed up of hearing the Ritchie stories he wants to help get us up and then the situation to be reviewed in the summer.

The Paolo revolution carries on.Paolo has put together a better tema than we had last season he has made a few mistakes with signings but which manager hasnt and he has learnt quickly and no doubt he is going to be a top manager in England and hopefully he will be with us a while longer yet. He is a breath of fresh air and is honest in his opinions and committed and passionate to his job as he wants to be successful. All the knockers of Paolo are jelaous that he is doing a good job.

All the rubbish he has spent loads of money is absolute garbage as the vast majority of our signings have been free transfers.

He has made us the fittest team in the league and the best footballing team by a mile.


23 Jan 2012 07:44:49
Obefemi martins to sign for Birmingham on a short term loan. He was down st Andrews for blues v Watford(16)(11)I know I saw him


23 Jan 2012 05:15:56
Reading Fc to Bring in Billy Sharp of Doncaster Rovers as the first of 3/4 new signings coming in before the end of the January Transfer window. Ryan Bertrand will also come in as will a central attacking midfielder.(11)(20)You are going to be so disappointed !It will all end in tears!
Unknown Russian of unknown wealth - your balance sheet will be full of debt soon - there will be a holding company that own the stadium and you will be a mere tenant - just ask pompey fans!Ryan Bertrand plays left backErm.............Ryan Bertrand is a left-back.

Bullsht.Erm.............Ryan Bertrand is a left-back.

Nobody said anything different, read the post properly before criticizing. Not happening but we know what position he plays as he has played for us before.At what point did he say Bertrand was a attacking mid, read it again properlyActually the TSI head is known announced on the reading fc site people these days, your just jealous because you don't have that kin of money, and no, we aren't going to waste it on overrated players, brian and nick hammond know what they are doing and madejski is sensible two, god, people these days.....I know that Ryan Bertrand is a LB, i didn't say he was a midfielder, i said we are looking to bring in a attacking midfielder as well as Bertrand (who is a defender) most probably on loan until the end of the season, then we might have a chance to buy him on a permanent deal. Reading wont throw their money around, that isn't us. We will spend it wisely in areas that we need strengthening.


23 Jan 2012 01:51:35
Spanish press (look for "punto pelota" and from tomorrow in every spanish paper) said that mourinho is leaving real madrid this summer. he had serious problems with spanish players, casillas the most, since they donĀ“t understand the 2 kinds of behaviours that he has with portuguese players (specially if jorge mendes is their agent, like his) and the rest. They had serious discussions that i will tell another day(the biggest with casillas), there is even a "spy" that is loosing tongue to the press. The problem as well is the football style, Bernabeu fans (the really important opinion since real madrid is not a unlimited corporation) and players are getting tired with the deffensive style, that doesnt fit in spanish football very well and the minor team impression the other day against barcelona, the aggresions and the excuses with referees(18)(10)Real have scored more goals than even Barca this season 67 in 19 games and you think they are defensive? Have you actually watched them play.
Mourinho will always get a bit of criticism that's Mourinho and the Barca game and in particular Pepe's contribution raised concerns but whilst some always have been unhappy with Mourinho he has a lot of support tooGetting tired of defensive style?!?!?!......what the hell are you talking about.....Madrid have scored more goals than Barca(8 to be precise) fact they have scored more goals than any other team in the whole of Europe in the top flight leagues......stupid remark!


23 Jan 2012 01:25:25
Bendtner loan deal will be cancelled has he is to much of a wideboy and not scoring goals.
O'neill has said he may has well train has a winger.
Couple of Swedish clubs are interested in him and a Danish Club.

Furture Right Winger not striker(27)(3)

Coventry citys James McPake is joining Hibernian on loan till the end if the season(17)(2)


23 Jan 2012 00:57:49
hi ed any saints news . like that montpellia playler or a striker just need to get some life back in the team last few weeks been playing a bit sloppy {Ed001's Note - nothing since the Hooper furore, but then Southampton do try and keep their deals under wraps, it is only if it leaks from the other end people find out about it.}(2)(7)Well said Ed but a few of our fans really do my head in. Falque likely to be in squad tonight and Lee Saturday. Oh and whilst you've been boring the tits off everybody with transfer hysteria, we've won our last 2 games whilst scoring 5 goals.


23 Jan 2012 00:53:53
James McArthur to come in on loan as McCoist rates him highly. Deal will be done within the next 2 weeks. Leeds also interested in the Scottish Internationalist.

Davie/ RFC(5)(28)Hes out injured at the moment......sorry.

Qpr told by suprs bid 6 millon for pieannr (he is not a kind of player that u spend that sort of money on)(6)(24)Spurs valuations are stupid, stopping the player from playing - peanuts should have stayed at Everton!


23 Jan 2012 00:38:51
Southampton to table a final 8 million take it or leave it bid monday morning for Gary Hooper. #AggresiveBidding(16)(31)That'll be a "leave it" then, no chance of him leaving. Player has stated he wants to stay and Celtic looking for a much higher fee!No they wont, Adkins has stated himself there interest in this player is now over and have moved on to other targets. Besides i know Celtic rate this player highly but he is relatively unproven, i mean he has scored 12 goals in 22 league games in a league apart from Rangers the standard is extremely poor 20 points seperate Rangers and Hearts in 3rd place, so 6 million that Saints have already offered was way too much. I do undestand however how Lennon would say he is worth 35 million, if his goals help win you the league then to Celtic he is priceless, its a bit like Lambert for us, people laugh when fans on here say he is worth 10 million but if his goals get us promoted to the Prem this season he will be worth a dam site more then that.
End of the day Hooper staying at Celtic, Celtic dont want to sell, Saints have publicly said there interest in this player is now over, so lets put this rumour to bed.He wont be moving, will be signing a new deal with celtic in february once the club have finished with this transfer window.Agree entirely with the 'no they wont' post and for similar reasons Rhodes wont be going anywhere until summer either.Maynard, Sharp, Rodriquez, Rhodes and now Hooper Saints fans on here are pesistant never any truth in their rumours just a list of strikers they would like to see who next MessiSaints fan here - NO WE WONT BE SIGNING HOOPER FFS LEAVE IT - BORING.


23 Jan 2012 00:30:08
its deffo true about holt to rangers,i was watching match against chelsea with his brother,mccoist has been in touch with him,only thing is,would lambert sell to rangers !(2)(33)It's got nothing to do with whether he will sell to Rangers or not.2 things that will stop the rangers buying this player, the wages would think this player would be on at least 25k a week and we all know rangers are trying to cap there wage bill. 2nd thing is rangers would never be able to pay the transfer fee, what's this well respected premier league player worth? 4m +It might be true that McCoist wants Holt, but it won't be happening, Lambert will not sell him to any club this season.If the transfer fee was say a fiver(paid in installments ) and the player was willing to take the minimum wage then every chance this deal could go throughNo chance. If Holt was available and willing to play in the SPL he would be on Celtic's radar because he fits the profile of experienced target man that they are after and we all know Rangers cant compete financially with Celtic.Utter tosh born from the small brain of a jealous ipswich supporterWould be a massive step down for him in terms of competition. Rangers are a big club but there is only 4 big games a season in that league for them. He's adored here and his family is settled. Load of tosh.


23 Jan 2012 00:25:21
Roman pavlyuchenko will sign for Sunderland through the week.. 8 million.(33)(29)Lets keep our fingers toes and everything else crossedYou aint got any money steve bruce spent it allHope so Pav is a class striker if he gets a few games under his belt always been a fan since the euro championships a few years back when Russia did wellDoubt it very much bruce target not oniells

louis laing of sunderland to sign for liverpool after his loan move finishes, arsenal to sign jake caskey and lewis dunk from brighton(2)(25)Not going to happen, unless Liverpool pay ridiculous money for Laing. Liverpool needs to get their senior team working, not spending on youngsters right now..The kids too good for them


23 Jan 2012 00:00:36
united will not be going for a star midfielder until the summer and it will not be hazard as he is going to chelsea, sneijder on the cheap in the summer could happen if not then modric should be back up target, we only need one as we have cleverley, a great defensive mid would be rodwell and we could easily make a swap deal with everton(1)(24)


22 Jan 2012 23:59:06
chelsea to sign belgian stars hazard and de bruyne(25)(13)


22 Jan 2012 23:58:27

Walsall are considering a 70k offer from tranmere for french winger claude gnakpa

you heard it hear first, good source too
Good source as in Twitter?(9)(5)70k? or 70p walsall dont spend anything over the valuation of a packet of pork scratchingsSilly it means we are considering selling him. What I expect to happen is a sale.


22 Jan 2012 23:24:26
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}

Rodriguez will be a burnley player come feb 1st but is likely to leave in the summer.. as for lack of goals think you need to do your research, had a 0-0 yesterday for the first time in over a year ... burnley have no trouble scoring goals.(2)(8)


22 jan 2012 22:47:23
hi ed any news on wolves im hearing all sorts of stories from sacking to rafa takin over is there a press conference tomorrow cheers pal {Ed001's Note - there will not be a press conference, but I was told Mick would be going, though nothing is definite until it happens. When I was told, it was Saturday night and Steve Morgan could easily have slept on it and changed his mind. But it was looking like Mick McCarthy would be collecting his cards on the Sunday and the club would announce something Monday, probably that he left by mutual consent.}(10)(2)Anything in the but with rafa eds? {Ed001's Note - I know Morgan has asked him jokingly in the past to manage Wolves, but that is as far as my knowledge extends on the matter. I really don't know if there is any chance at all.}
