Southampton have made a £1.85 million bid for Posh striker George Boyd(21)(24)Dont be silly, southampton wont spend 1 let alone 1.85 MILLION on a player!Didn't you get the memo? Southampton are the richest, biggest, bestist club in the whole wide world. Their fans said so, so it must be true.Good news if it's true.....we've badly missed a battling, goal scoring mid-fielder since Chaplow's injury.Ummm........ Danny Fox 1.8m, Jos Hooiveld 2m, Tandooro Lee 1.6m, Jack Cork 750k...... All within the past 6 months. The club is financially stable with no debts and a good income from ticket sales and the 12m we got UP FRONT for chambo. We own our stadium and training facility thanks to the late Marcus Liebherr. No ones saying we're mega rich, but we do have money to spend and everyone with half a brain cell can see that!Point 2 sums up the saints fans on here perfectly. Surpised Maynard, Rhodes and Sharp have not been mentioned today yet.


24 Jan 2012 23:02:29
Daniel Levy has been in talks with Vinicius Prates today over the signing of Leandro Damiao for 23.5m.(9)(8)Daniel Levy putting money into tottenham, i dont think so he's made a profit of selling players he has only made one signing of his money which is VDVOnly bought VDV? where the hell have you been mate? modric, parker, bale, kaboul, defoe (second time), crouch, kaboul (second time), bassong, 16 mil bently (crap but still paid alot for him), gomes, kranjkar! list is endless! so ur comment is ridiculous!There is no way Levy will pay that much for anyone!!


24 Jan 2012 22:45:24
I was at the Stevenage game and saw Gary Smith next to Phil Wallace. No doubt he is the next manager, to be announced tomorrow. Also Chris Powell and Brian McDermott seen at the game probably looking at players. Thought you should know ;)(11)(6)Its been confirmed on the stevenage site, guppy and winterburn to be his coaching teamChris powell could of just been scouting MK and Stevenage because we play them both soon :)


24 Jan 2012 22:53:51
kevin davies to sunderland(13)(38) 

You got no money your skintAnd tenth in the league, dont need a striker who cant get a game in a certain for relagation team.

ED: any decent sunderland rumours apart from the 2 guys on trial? {Ed003's Note - Nope,nothing new sorry }(3)(17)We will see still rumoured with Ola Toivonen


24 Jan 2012 22:07:23
Breaking News .... Dynamo Kiev bid 8m for Gary Hooper(10)(44)NahhhhhhhhNeil lennon valued him at over 35 million so im pretty sure there going to accept that...Values him at 35 million yet pays him 15k a week ... coarse u do Lennon , he deserves new contract or should leave.No chance, HOOPS is staying to make himself a legend. BIG K Davies would be a cracking target man, take a drop in wages and come and enjoy a spell with THE MAGNIFICENT GLASGOW CELTIC.............. HAIL HAIL


24 Jan 2012 21:42:11
There is a rumour that southamton want to sign fuller from stoke for 2.5mil as.cheaper alternative to hooper(9)(32) 

Who gives a stuff about southampton, is this rumour page run by sainthampton, yous seem to be getting carried away that yous will be signing everybody? but nobody wants to play for second tier clubI wouldn't wish him on Southampton... Actually, yeah why not, and at that price! LOLUr clubs got no money ?? LolWe've had him once never again!Probably too good for Southampton but good chance he'll leave on loanSouthampton football club dont have much money.Why would saints sign a player that they had 6 years ago? He was truly awful and we could not wait to get him off our books. Only shock was that another person would pay 500,000 to take him of us at the time!Fuller was Harry Redknapp's (sorry, Rosie) only signing for Saints. He didn't do too badly at stoke when he first went there but he's past his sell-by date now.Unlikely that he'll want to go to a smaller club.Can you tell me why we would want to sign a player that would be a backward step for Saints. He is not worth the 2.5m that Stoke want because the first time he came to Saints we only paid 90k for him. We off loaded him because he was useless and were pleased we only spent the 90k on him.

24 Jan 2012 21:24:26

ricky van wolfwinkel due at anfield for a medical on thurs b4 a 12m move(17)(34)With man city n man u interested dream on softnladAnd injury ruling him out for another 2-3 week at least.Not saying theres any truth in this, but we did sign Carroll injured!Dont have to do a medicalHe only signed for Sporting in June/July and has been playing and scoring regularly; why would he want to leave and why would Sporting want to sell? Utter BS


24 Jan 2012 20:32:41
Any stoke rumours ed(3)(11)Yes, were going to sign the whole everton team for 5 million because they need the moneyDon't think Stoke would want a whole team that were below them in the league.

Stoke look like they'll wait until the Summer to get one big name they're after and he's at a far bigger club than Everton.The whole Everton team....... so it's true that Stoke are going to sign Baines and Cahill then! Apparently Baines is teh best in the World and worth 5000000000000000000 if you believe the tosh being spouted from Goodison


24 Jan 2012 20:58:53

24 Jan 2012 20:52:30
chelsea to offer porto 25m plu8s torres and ferreria for hulk(16)(35)Somewhat pointless if they do because Torres would never go thereFind this hard to beleive seeing as hulk says he's not leaving this january window and torres is 'not for sale' says avbHulk is completely overrated. He's not worth anywhere near 25 million let alone torres as well.


24 Jan 2012 20:50:09
barmby told pearson to up his bid to 4.5m for cameron stewart(13)(12)Lol he's worth about 1 mill, lcfc won't pay that or him maybe with add ons and appearances and goals and promotion and staying there for 2 years before that value...lolBarmby is manager not chairman/ chief exec. He does not decide how much a player is worthSome one tell this hull city fan you get locked up for robbery, leicester aint guna pay4.5 mill for a average player!!!!!That average player you speak of would walk in to Leicester's poor side he will also enjoy doing the double on you this year oh how does the table look from down there COYHLeicester are used to buying average players at inflated prices but cameron stewart is too good for you and wants to stay with the tigers(a bigger and better club)

24 Jan 2012 20:48:13
arsenal to sign wayne bridge 3.8m(12)(43)BehaveReally?I believe anyone that would actually believe wayne bridge is worth 3.8 mil would be in primary school. plus wages are too high.Don't think so. He's available on a free - his wages are the problemWages are a problem also the 'I will sit in the stands and take the money rather than go and earn a living playing football' Any manager worth his salt will not sign a player who appears to demonstrate this kind of attitude.
He certainly would not be much use to you in the trenches fighting relegation. Why do you think he is still at Man City.


24 Jan 2012 20:47:32

24 Jan 2012 19:53:20
Saints need to continue their promotion push by signing a center back, right winger + striker. I would like, Matt Killagon CB, Matt Phillips or Andrew Driver RW and Simon Cox or Theo Robinson or Jordan Rhodes ST.(8)(21)You certainly do after that shower performance against struggling Leicester sideTheo is one of the most frustrating players in footballAndrew driver is a left wingerYou actually want Theo Robinson. As a Derby fan you are a mad mad man!


24 Jan 2012 19:50:30
Leiciester will sign Morgan
Then St ledger will join Ipswich
Leiciester will also sign Billy Sharp
And Ipswich will sign Jason Pearce and Joel Ward(4)(24)Sharp was at Reading on Saturday and Leicester do not wan't him after they got delfaunisesSharp won't be moving to Leicester, one report says his wage demands were too high, another says he knocked the Foxes back, either way, it's dead, move on. St Ledger to Ipswich is also dead, as per Paul Jewell's comments on the situation. St Ledger was superb V's both Southampton and Forest. Morgan may happen but Leicester will have to up their bid as the Tree's want 1m for him.

Other than that, you're spot on.St Ledger deal is not dead until Leicester say so, it could still happen with him moving to Ipswich but not yet, if after the window closes, it could be a loan until the end of the seasonSt ledger WILL sign for Ipswich if leiciester sign MorganI doubt we (Ipswich) will sign any of the players despite the reported bids. I'm sure our micky mouse management team will mess it up again just like with Billy Sharp and Coppinger


24 Jan 2012 19:50:07
heard donaldson or mcload in for oxford. also ritchie is to leave swindon for championship club!(3)(12)Barnet wont loan you Mcleod (yep I spelt it right) and you have no money,, so you cant buy him...... Didnt you accept a bid from Swindon for your main striker because you are skint....

Doncaster have accepted bids from Cardiff, Birmingham and Hull for Billy Sharp, it is up to the player who he signs for(7)(18)I have heard that it's BirminghamWhere did you hear that?What a load of rubbish, there have been NO new bids for Sharp, he will be a Doncaster player till the the end of the season at least.


24 Jan 2012 19:41:02

24 Jan 2012 19:39:57

24 Jan 2012 19:27:07
Rodwell to go Man utd next few days for 23m .... Everton to bid for Gary Hooper 8m if that deal happens.... also to spend 5m on a replacement midfielder and bank 10m .(11)(28)Overheard someone today saying Hooper's agent also talking to Dynamo Kiev and Galatasaray as not as much prem interest as first thought.So do Everton have money! lol23 Million you'll be lucky to get 4m for him, he isnt even that good apart from passing, he's slow, weak, cant finish hasn't got much vision, just because he's young and English dosent mean he's the new jack wilshire!Slow? weak? were not talkin about phil neville mate. jack rodwell he said. have you ever actually saw him play?Hmm, played for England last year, made a massive impact.Cappallo see's him as massively impormtant to England's future. Feggie's been keeping tabs in him for years.
If Jordan Henderson was worth 20 million jack rodwell is easily worth 23 million.I do not think so.Gary Hooper 8million you are kidding son 4 topsWhy Does Jack Rodwells name keep getting posted on this site every transfer window with a huge fee 20-30M to a big club - are you his agent? He's OK but not worth more than 5M if your lucky!Celtic are much bigger than perennial stragglers Everton. Why would he go to a citys second club? Dream on

Leeds to sign stoke city cb danny collins on loan until end of the season with view of a permanent move in the summer(17)(9)I think Danny would rather wait and see what else pops up,If he's got a move to a much bigger club (Leeds) on the table, then I don't think he'll hang about.Danny is currently injured, so whoever he chooses he cant play for them for a while, so lets wait and see on this one

24 Jan 2012 18:34:02
I didn't say there was a right offer, I said IF. As already said, the club don't want to sell, but for a league 2 club like Southend there is ALWAYS a price where they have to say yes. The player would definitely leave for the Champ, and no, it's not hard, but you read my post horribly wrong and you've got it wrong, no need to respond like that, especially when what I said is true fella.(5)(4)Who is having a pop at you? I constructively put across some news. Can't see where you got the idea I was having a go.Well when you put a post like that you deserve to be have a respone like that.

He wouldnt just leave for the championship?
Are you Ryan Hall?

He wants to stay with Southend to get promoted, he maybe has sense to stick by the club which helped him when he was going to prison.

Learn the real facts, then you see what your saying makes no sense.


24 Jan 2012 18:32:41
Everton to use the money from the sale of Dinyar bilyaletdinov to make a move for Ranger's striker Nikica Jelavic.

From the dog EFC(17)(10)Everton can barely pay the bills, let alone pay 10million for a striker.

They have only made 4m on him, thats a 5m lossDinar is singly going for 2m so I can't see where everton have 5 m from cus their
E going bumpThink he would fit in at everton, hes different from what youve got know but it would probably take about 7 mil to get himEverton, Money in the same sentance without the words LACK OFF?


24 Jan 2012 18:31:19
From the dog,

Everton in talks with Chelsea about a loan deal for Romelu Lukaku for the rest of the season

Rem you heard it 1st from the Dog EFC(13)(6)Not possibleCan't happen mug as he has played for 2 different teams this season.

Michael Owen Man U
Dimitar Berbatov Man U
Darren Bent A. Villa
Jermain DeFoe -- Spurs
Bassong-- Spurs
Rodiagga and Moses -- Wigan
Ben Arfa & Tiote -- Newcastle(7)(34)Are you having a laff ben arfa and tiote are you mad never hapenBen arfa and tiote? hha considering none of them got on with joey barton at NUFC? good one del boyBen Arfa and Tiote?? Jog on muppetIm a qpr fan and even i know that owen, berbatov, bent, ben arfa, tiote, moses ,and rodeagga wont be coming to w12. utter bull. defoe will stay at spurs and bassong isnt wanted by us now.Ben Arfa and Tiote dont make me laugh,they play in front of 52000 every week,why would they swap that for playing in a cow shed,by the way aint Barton doin wellOn football manager maybeThey can't even aford the transfers let alone the wage bills for all those playersYou realise the qpr owner is only worth 300 million? Can't imagine he'd spend a third of his wealth on the team?There are bigger teams in the championship that these players would go to before QPR hahaThe owner only has 300 million? And the main backer is down to his last 14 billion. We could get who we want off that list if wanted,except for the toon pair.Except you wont because noone wants to play for youFirstly you can't play football in a cow shed. So that was a ridiculous comment. Secondly 52,000 a week you would be lucky. Thirdly going on owners wealth alone QPR are technically the richest club in the world. So could quite easily afford all of those players.That's correct about Fernandes, he is wealthier GuamanianQPR? No your owner owns the club - not partly he owns 100% therefore you are not technically the richest club in the world as the rich folk who spent so so much money on the team are no longer there... so no you wont get any of the players mentioned not 1. Even Bassong who does not get a game has snubbed you. Realise that unless you stay up you wont sign anyone unless they are in the championship at the mo... Nicky Maynard is a good shout for you boys and snodgrass from leeds.Why 5 strikers?Ahaha....... breathe........ a


24 Jan 2012 18:02:06
Hooper to Liverpool for 6 mil . The reason Celtic knocked back the initial 6m from southhampton was due to the player's unwillingness to join a small team(21)(20)Do the big teams need someone to keep that third choice 'but quite good in the Championship' seat warm? Please refer all responses to Mssrs Bothroyd and Beckford, 14 Benchington Cul de Sac, Splinterbutt, Lastminsub-on-Sea.Southampton a small club? Wash your mouth out with soap! Just because you've won the Champions league in the last ten years doesnt make Liverpool bigger than us, stop living in the past!No contact has been made from Liverpool regarding Gary Hooper. #ARTRubbish,they already have enough dudsHe is playing for celtic so u can not get smaller than thatApparently Southampton are.Check your stats...Celtic a small club...yeah, S'hampton get 60000 every home game!! If the championship is so poor how come the best ever Scottish striker Jenny miller can't score for fun like he did up there??Saints as you put it a small club but with a big bank balance something you wish you had ps enjoy your 4 big games a year ?No southampton not rich owner is
celtic have 3 billionaires on the board so does that make celtic rich?How come one of Southamptons best players is a Celtic reject (Hooiveld). Not good enough for that carp league yet he's great in the championship. Wakw up ur leagues not as good as you think !!Best EVER scottish striker kenny miller????

lol...i can think of about 200 that are in front of himHooper is over rated played rubbish last season in scotland, scored 8 goals in the spl all of a sudden hes next bobby charlton i dunno think so.There is no team bigger than Celtic in Britain. Maybe Man U at a push. Cant see him leaving unless to United or Barca. 30m+32 goals in 49 appearences for Celtic? I think the above poster is trying to be mischevious.No bigger team in britain than celtic ... lol, liverpool? rangers?Rangers? is that AFC Rangers Newco? Can you take your history with you when start again in the third division?He went to a small club in celtic

Tomas Rosicky's agent, Pavel Paska, has travelled to London for talks with Arsene Wenger over the player's future. and possible deal bringing The Czech Republic international to Reading seeing as Rosicky's only started five league games for Arsenal this season and is out of contract in the Wenger has decided to cash in on the Rosicky fee is believed to be around 3.5 million(7)(17)I cannot see reading fc going for players like that they just not that kind of club they will be after the better players in leauge 1 and 2 its a shameThey have new ownersHonestly, what a load of nonsense. If you've seen the Reading FC news conference today you would know that a) Reading do have money to play with but b) we will not up our wage budget.

It is already one of the more competitive in the league and the club will continue to be ran in a sensible and prudent way. The main difference now is vast financial backing from a number of Russian business men.

Stop making rubbish up like this!


24 Jan 2012 17:51:13

Don't think he wants to stay in England.So he has a list of players (and obviously you've seen the list so know who's on it) but he's not going to bid on the players, just inquire about them, what will he be asking? If they've had their tea? If they're coming out to play?

Jackanory finished years ago pal, but they'd be proud of that tale.I wrote the list I am Brian McDermott shhhA load of tosh arsharvin you jokingMcdermott has a habit of telling the village person what players he is looking at. I wish people would just post genuine rumours rather than making up rubbish.

Leeds United have taken Harrogate central midfielder Gareth Thompson, 19, on trial with a view to a long term deal. The deal could be worth up to £18k to Harrogate.(11)(9)This can't be true, he's already set to sign for SunderlandIf we could pay in 3 yearly instalments of 6k a year this rumour may have some legsI doubt harrogate would accept an offer that small, they aren't short of money.

Reading youngster Jacob Walcott will link up with FC Utrecht next week after being offered a trial by the Eredivisie club.

The 20-year-old Royals trainee, the cousin of England and Arsenal winger Theo, spent time on loan in Holland last season with Telstar.

The forward will now return to the Netherlands to train with the Utrecht reserves and could join the club on a free transfer.

Utrecht technical director Foeke Booy told Voetbal International: "We weren't looking for attacking reinforcements but we will see if this player can enhance the squad.

"He won't cost anything as he is available on a free transfer." Mr Reading(12)(3)

Very strong rumours in south Wales is that Jamie mackie is due in Cardiff in the next 48 hours to take alook around at meet the manager and staff but it's looking like reading are about to hijack the deal with mackie interested in the reading approach !(6)(14)Correct me if im wrong but hasnt he started every game under mark hughes so far? If not at least featured. Tell me why he would leave again?Agree with the above, why would we be selling him ?? First team regular with some what of a small squadIm a qpr fan and i cant see mark hughes getting rid of makie as the squad is to small, maybe next year.Just saying whats been printed in our local press ? yes hes started every game or atleast featured perhaps with the players that are coming to qpr he may be surplus to requirements at loftus road i agree may leave in the summer if sparky has the cash to splash i personally cant see nothing being done in this window but the welsh press and media are all over this story down here, i again agree mark would mad to let him go in this window

sorry bhoys but i dont see what all the fuss is about ive been watching the hoops since 1965 hooper not in the top 20 stikers ive seen and as for jellyfish derek parlane was better and he was crap honest(6)(15)Hoopers a god up at park head, what's he won?......Nothing, 16 goals this season, god, jelavic has SO CALLED WENT OFF THE BOIL, yeah he has, he's only scored 17 goals this season, that's naw bad for a player that's went off the boil, and single handedly won rangers the c.i.s cup and league, full international, naw even hut his peak yet, brilliant football striker....but Celtic fans will say he's off the boil, they don't notice that they're actually giving the guy a compliment....that's HOW DAFT THEY ARE....What language are you talking in?? it certainly doesn't sound like scottish....perhaps someone pretending to be?

anyway, i think you'll find that the ones who are saying jellylegs has gone off the boil are actually the rangers supporters, pop on over to their page to see exactly what they think of him;)

single handedly won the CIS cup & league?? FFS mate, you need a lie down ROFL!!!!Jelavic is a far classier player than hooper who is very predictableHoopers a better finisher,faster and links play better than jelavic but jelavic is better in the air,more skillful and is good at free kicks - depends what your looking for in a striker.

Muslimovic has walked out on Rangers to go on trial at Sunderland.

The prolific Bosnian strike ace was expected to spend a week with Rangers as Ally McCoist looked to add to his striking options.

Former Celtic boss Martin O’Neill has now moved in for the 30-year-old who has walked out on Rangers after just one day of his week long trial.

His agent, Jan Bezemer, told stv: “Zlatan trained at Rangers yesterday, everything was nice and we were interested.

He trained with Sunderland today.(14)(2)They must have changed the meaning of ' prolific ' from the one in my dictionarySource cos theres nothing on the sunderland website.Good he has a disgraceful goalscoring record..Ssn this guy has played over 200 games and hasnt even scored 50 goal yet wat is going on that where even looking at him am starting to think we have no money to spendRumour has it Rangers asked for 50 from him before he could start the trial - something to do with his digs in Nitshill not having been paid. He politely declined and sped off to Sunderland.

Dont get me wrong Sharp is a good player, its just not going to happen


24 Jan 2012 16:26:48
Robert SNodgrass to join WHU for £2.5m as WHU prepare for Premiership football next season(18)(34)Joining a proper club at lastFor one, Bates put a price tag of 5 mil on him. Secondly he had an interview about his thoughts of the season which shows how loyal he is to Leeds, FOR NOW.He wont leave sorry hammers. As for a proper side. Both sides are steeped in tradition and history, but are both in the championship. Im a realistic Leeds fan.Not a leeds fan but maybe double that amountWHU are gonna bottle it. BFC will win it, you watchValue: 5mil. Worth it too, the way he is playing at the moment. If West Ham are promoted, then this could happen in the summer yes.
wallyNah why would we turn down a bid of 3m from norwich in the summer, then sell him for 2.5m in jan ???Dream on sunshine!! never gonna happen!Snodgrass is a great player. He s got 20 goals from midfield in the last season and a half and most of the assists. But I m afraid your dreaming unless your club will pay 5 million plus.
You may have noticed that when a team sells one of their best players, their captain, it makes it very very unlikely that they will then sell their next best player a few days later. Bates is outspoken, unpopular and a bit nuts, but when it comes to money he knows how to make a few quid. Snodgrass has 18 months on his contract left, so Bates will wait and see if by some miracle we get in the play offs, then will sell him and cash in. It makes financial sense. So West Ham and Norwich fans (who have a creepy fascination with our midfield) will need to try and be patient till the summer.

It was revealed when Oneil signed that he tried to but there is no option to bring him back from his loan at any point throughout the season.Sadly not correct, the loan deal is for the full season. MON has tried but no go i,m afraid.Isn't Al Ains season over so thought he could come backI believe he is injured also has not played for Al Ain in there last two gamesAl Ain paid to have him for the season(6mill i believe) so i would have thought sunderland would have to pay most of that back if he came back early.Not injured like he played ghana last nite

They were offered in excess of 4mil before...He's not going anywhere untill the summer if huddesfield go up he might even stay there,and why would Bates spend money on someoneAnother dreamer , 2.5M and Bates does not go together, unless you are talking about outgoing transfers, and you would not get a sniff of Rhodes for that money.But they wont acceped 6 mil from westhamU shud worry about keepin hold of yor own players, never mind thinkin u cud sign RHODES, funny little boy. AGHe is unproven above league 1 level,southampton only paid 1m for lambert off bristol when he was in league 1...its very rare to see players go for decent money below championship level,not saying he can't do it but till he proves it he's not worth the figures being banded aboutAnd Leeds to re-sign Paul Rachubka to end their goalkeeping crisis. FACT.

Does that make it plausable?

Liverpool have £70m to spend in the summer! It is thought king kenny is eyeing two centre backs, a right back, a new midfield and a proven goalscorer as back up to andy carrol! any english player will do! this should be enough to see liverpool compete for the europa league spots on a regular basis!! In King Kenny We Trust!!(10)(28)A Liverpool fan who speaks the truth, how refreshing!Liverpools 70m will be spent on Shola Ameobi 24m, Titus Bramble 20m and James Collins 26m. They seem to like throwing money at Newcastle,Sunderland and Villa for Duds.So he'll but sol cambell and woodgate for 20 million each and carlton cole for 30 mill cos the only thing kenny is king at is paying twice the amount what players are worthReplace the whole team in other words!Lets hope 35 million does not get thrown away on any more donkeys!Ameobi isn't even worth 24p! last I heard Bramble and Collins were pretty good defenders but I think Liverpool will put in a 70m bid for craig gordon with sunderland likely to sell himKing Kenny will use that on..
50M on re-signing Crouch..
20m on Owen Hargreaves, cos he's fed up with injury prone midfielders !!Bring back Rafa!Ha ha ha ha manctonians. forever in our shadows!Ha 50m for crouchDon't think Jenny will be there in the summer heard the yanks don't like the way he has handled the Suarez affair

Terry to be banned for 4 games(14)(17)Same as Suarez, Cant make a difference because he's the England captain4 games what a joke!If he is found guilty it will be as long as Suarez surely...First of all the FA have not charged him yet, they are waiting on the criminal charge outcome first before deciding if they will actually charge him, so your post is stupid guess work at this stage.
Also I suspect, if he used the words as are being quoted and its proven in court he will get a longer ban that 8 weeks and almost certainly never play for England again. If the FA do not take this kind of severe action assuming he is proved guilty then their anti racism policy they say is cast in stone will be worthless.

The Chelsea fans were chanting racist songs on the train home from Norwich on Saturday, apparently at least one was arrested, and this is no surprise, the situation at Liverpool and Dalglish's backing of his player resulted in similar chanting recently at Anfield. In My opinion neither clubs have handled this situation well and this has in fact inflamed the problem.Make it 12 cos of who he is just to prove he aint untouchableI don't think the Crown Prosecution Service will be interested in a football suspension...

If he's guilty that means he's a criminal - football will be a side issue. It's nothing to do with the Suarez case.

Also close to deals for McGugan and Snodgrass. Still looking at Sordell but not as hopeful.(15)(26)7.2mil for Jelavic. About 2mil for McGugan and up to 5mil for Snodgrass.

And looking at Sordell.

I think you know what I'm going to say.

Where are you getting this money, please? And where can I find some?
wallySnodgrass Is NOT Leaving Leeds! MOTYou are living in a dream world if you think you can sign Snodgrass. If he was to leave he would go to a BIGGER club!Snoddy has said he is NOT leaving Leeds. Now that thats cleared up !He would be moving to a BIGGER club? What are you talking about. I dont think he will leave Leeds but West Ham are definitely the bigger clubWest Ham are going back to the promised
land of the premiership Leeds are not and maybe not next season end ofTop of the championship and more than likely to get promoted. I'm sure he'd leave Leeds for West Ham. Sam had 10m to spend in Jan and owners funding signings themselves {Ed013's Note - Leeds wont sign their top players to Championship rivals}Cheers for that ED.West Ham will be losing play off finalists to ReadingWhy would snodgrass leave?

Acording to revista on sky Garcia is wanted by Athletico(despite being a formar Real player) and is on the fringes of the Spain squad. Why would they leave a team that plays euro football evey year and challenges for the lge to go to a championship club? Okay reading could have a bit of coin after the takeover but get a grip, they would need about 15mill for the two and they are probaly on about 20k a week at the moment Madness of a post.

Prob the usual big name speculation linked with the Celtic and they will end up with Dion Dublin til end of the season!(3)(13)They can't buy until they sell! so Dion is out the question!More chance of signing tony sopranoWee can buy and dont need to sell

daviebhoy08Rangers can't buy untill they sell. Celtic can buy if they feel like it, no financial problems whatsoever. They are trying to move on some of the dead weight from the squad but its not essential for funds.

If Harry Redknapp and Milan Mandaric are jailed:

Gus Poyet will take over at Spurs, with Alan Curbishley taking over at Brighton

Howard Wilkinson will take over as Sheffield Wednesday chairman until the end of the season in an interim position.(14)(23)Spurs are currently third in the league with a crop of quality players and a very sound financial base. They are more attractive as option for potential manager than they've ever been in my life time. Why on earth would they appoint Poyet?They don't jail people who commit GBH these days, so jailing these two for alleged tax evasion of 180K is just not going to happen, assuming of course they are actually found guilty.
What a stupid rumour to put on this site.Assuming they are found guilty (it's fairly obvious they will be, HMRC don't bring cases they're not going to win) then they WILL be jailed. Ask Lestor Piggot and Ken Dodd if you get locked up for tax evasion or not. HMRC are the only creditor guaranteed to bankrupt a debtor, nobody else will because it costs a lot of money and you never recoup the original debt - HMRC are not to be messed with, Harry's going down.What happened to Peter Storey's court case might give you an idea on this one...Actually Southwark Crown Court is known for handing out some pretty stiff punishments, so I wouldn't be over optimistic just yet. And for your information, defrauding the tax man is considered far worse than GBH, it's an offence against the State. You don't set 2 weeks aside for a trial if you are going to slap wrists etc.Whatever but we will appoint someone alot more proven than PoyetIf Harry goes to jail, Spurs will go for David Moyes.Pretty sure Harry will be left alone in the showers...just hope theres no ARSEnal fans in there with him..haha

CSKA Moscow join West Ham in race to sign Rangers striker. apparently more hype to try and make hammers increase bid to ridiculous prices for
Jelavic. £7.2m may allow hammers change direction and bring in Snodgrass, Sharp and Mcgugan(6)(12)He is worth 10 million plus!West Ham are only in the race because they say they are, the players agent says he's not considering a small club and he has more ambition than that. The other stuff, about Sharp etc, is nothing more than a dream.There was a story in papers saying his DAD, not his agent, called West Ham a small club. Also these storys have been proven to be fake.

i did post first when a friend from ireland heard about defoe inquiry from some1 who works in liverpool fc, also after hearing there could b a small bid 4 gary hooper of celtic(8)(17)Liverpool can inquire about anyone , but no quality player is going to join them. End off!Why would anyone leave Celtic, ever for anyone appart from Barcalona who dispite being much smaller than Celtic play in the champions league for longerIm a Celtic fan, but there are a lot of bigger clubs than us. Hooper has asked for a pay rise, and he was to to wait until the end of season. Why would Celtic put it off if we are adamant hes not leaving? Give him a 5 year contract now and end the rumour rubbbish. Something fishy about it.The Celtic post is quality , did you write it with a straight face? why would anyone leave Celtic erm because they would like to play in a better league , for a better team , more money ? the list is endless really ! is the a Rangers fan having a laugh ?Lmao Barça smaller than Celtic?! I thought you lot were as deluded as some of us Saints fans but that's a cracking piece of crap you've spouted there! Besides Hooper will sign for us eventually.Having a laugh! Celtic and Rangers would be mid table Championship in England. The rest would struggle in Division1 (old 3rd Division).Andy Carroll + 10 million and we will think about it . Liverpool paid nearly 10 million for a Blackpool donkeyHooper will obviously turn down Liverpool to join Saints even if its true.

He has publicly stated that he will pay the 9 million himself because he believes Southampton will be the dominant force in world football by valentines day and is desperate to get aboard.

Another good result for us last night. We have decided that they are too awesome and it would be unfair to keep winning, we are going to drop out of the play off places for kicks before going back to the top in the run in.

The bubble hasn't burst ok!As the great Craig Burley said "Hooper to Southampton......................he's better than that!"

saints back in for billy sharp 1.5m,daily mirror and ssn,(14)(19)But I keep reading that Hooper has signed for Southampton? Did he play last night ad not impress? Is that why they need another striker?Unless he has seriously reconsideredthe wage demands he made to Leicester then he wont be comming to saintsI hope they sign him ,need a lift after last nights terrible performance,Sharp wont go to Saints like most of the other strikers that you have said you were getting , firstly Adkins is not a premier league manager but you wont go up any way and secondly your wage cap that Cortese has set and he will stay up north.Why would doncaster accept 1.5mil when his release clause is 1.85 mil? also teams have already activated this clause so cant see donny accepting less then that can you?Here we go again!Not enoughOh please not again nobody coming to saints this week to tight

Rangers are to offer £25 000 for Cove Rangers Striker Danny Milne. Apparently he has been on the Gers radar for the last couple of months as Super Ally sees him as a direct replacement for Jelavic.(9)(18)Well this rumour has grown! I heard this rumour yesterday morning apparently he drifted on to N.M's radar at the end of last year. Great wee player a bit pricey though, don't know about direct replacement but definately a good buy could definately step up given the chance.Out of rangers price range. Ally only has 100 empty bottles of ginger, which if calculations are corect that equats to 35.Rangers cant afford to replace Jelavic, Rangers tax evasion case will blow Harry Radknapp's away. We as a club are run by criminals. Totally ashamed to be a Ger atm. Get McCoist out!No doubt Rangers will ask Milne to pay the transfer fee a la Aluko...............they can't even sign the Estonian trialist without shifting players out off the wage bill. They're a laughing stock. Beenop


24 Jan 2012 12:26:51
Rangers have made a shock bid for Annan Athletic striker Graeme Bell.

Annan Manager Harry Cairney said "It is a terrific opportunity for the lad and we will not stand in his way"

Chairman Henry McClelland added "there are a few issues to be ironed out - Rangers want to pay the £5,000 fee in installments which we have rejected out of hand due Rangers ongoing tax case.

Bell himself is said to be mulling over the proposal but said he is not keen on taking a wage cut or paying the transfer fee himself.

Watch this space!(19)(9)Hilarious!They ain't got the cash!Im a Rangers fan, tell Rangers I will pay for the deal myself! Fed up being second best to celtic. Hope he doesnt turn out to be another james beattie though!

Club sources say Man U came in with an offer of 12 million for Jordan Rhodes, with the Striker being loaned back to Huddersfield for the remainder of the season.(9)(36)DREAMINGDont believe this one but i think it is the only type of deal which will take him anywhereSorry, only what club sources have told me. Apparently for 25k a week!Just what club sources told me...I've said this before but thanks Roy Keane for selling him and not listening to the town fans as you knew best!Hmm when was the last time Utd brought a League 1 player?
And who would spend 12mill only to send him out back on loan to league 1. enough said reallyHe was awesome as a barnslkey youngster and really only left on good terms as his dad became goalkeeping coach at ipswich, shame but he will not be leaving this wondow unless there is a loan back clause in the deal. Clarke has alredi stated that he will not leave unless he is loaned backWhat is all this Loaned back business. as this ever happened. As far as i am aware, as a player, you can only complete one domestic transfer per window. I know players have been loaned out as soon as they have arrived from abroad. But I dont think that what is being suggested CAN be doneHe may be able to be loaned back to hudderfield im not 100% sure but i'm sure that he can NOT be loaned to any other club if they did buy him. A player can not be registered to more then 2 clubs from the p/l down to league 2 in any one window but im not sure how it works if they are loaned back to the club they were purchased from. They can however be loaned out of bought from aborad as previously mentioned.12m haha thats ridiculous,he only paid 7m for hernandez and lets be honest rhodes couldn't lace his boots...oh and by the way he is sub at the moment,say no more

Source BBC Sport rumours(2)(12)Newcastle's offer for Marriappa was rejected.Well, Newcastle could do with scoring more own goals...Personally I think he will be a great signing big strong, another samba but cheaper. Just up Ashley's street.Big and strong? hes about 5"10, average build

Leeds to sign Joel Ward and Pearce from Portsmouth to help boost the depleted defense, also aiming to sign highly rated Nick Powell from Crewe to replace Jonny Howson and resign Andy Keogh from Wolves.

Grayson keen to show ambition is still at Elland Road after sale of Howson however these signings are dependant on selling/free transfers of Paytner, O'Brien, Sam and Brown to free up space on wage bill.(12)(14)So basically all the players Ipswich have been linked with then.We won't go back for keogh,he works hard but can't score,he only got 2 and one of those was deflected!

Emile Heskey is moving to Scunthorpe United leauge 2(6)(19)Scunny are league 1

L2 next season hahaHe's not good enough for L.1.or L.2. God help you if it's your club he ends up at.
Waste of time and space comes to mind.Heskey has been the best English target man for years. Ask Michael Owen! It's not just about scoring goals, you know! He'd still do a great job, especially for a direct team. Can't see him going to Scunthorpe though.


24 Jan 2012 11:38:45
Its now come to light that Sam Allardyce has
no funds to spend during this window. Every
west ham story has been hype by the board
to get west ham name in the news. There
was never any intention to buy players
during this Jan transfer window. Recent
abyssmal performance against Forest only
confirmed what WHU fans already knew and team
need a lot of new players not only to go up
but to keep them there. Current midfield
is poor and front men are lazy apart from Sam
Baldock. Bargains to be had from clubs
that need to sell like Mcgugan from forest
and Billy Sharp (combined value £4.5m
approx) but as always west ham apparently
identify targets and Sam has no intention
of buying because no January transfer Funds.
Stories of West ham offering £7.2m for Rangers striker when they could have offered the
same for BFS Main target Jordan Rhodes
all verify little of no funds available at
Upton park(28)(15)The club is 90m in dept, the onwers are worth 850m, they have money wether they spend their own money it its up to them....Does it matter? WH will play percentage football, get promoted and Big Sam will get the push. End ofWhats your source?I remember these owners from birmingham and i know they dont like spending money

24 Jan 2012 11:25:10
Ipswich have made a third bid to Portsmouth, but only for Pearce, believed to be around £1 million + add ons, with Ward we will have to wait and see, But if Portsmouth are sencible they should take a serious look at the offers Ipswich have made.

Leicester are also interested in Pearce(11)(5)As a Pompey fan I think we shouldn't accept it, the club is in no forseeable danger as our parent company is in admin and not the actual club. We don't need to sell players (only unless it were to raise funds to bring new players in) Ward and Pearce are two of our best players. Ward has already stated he doesn't want to go anywhere. But PLEASE take Kitson?There seems to be a bit of confusion here, now Pompey owe the tax man 1.6million yes, and that will rise to 2.4Million very shortly, now as i see it, tell me if I'm wrong, Pompey aint got any funds to pay this tax bill, otherwise it would have been settled ages ago, so if Pompey dont pay up a bit sharpish they will get wound up as a trading company, so yes Portsmouth do have to sell in my eyes"Our parent company is in administration, but the club isn't" - Surely that's like saying my house is on fire but the bedroom is fine. Donut!We are obviously in trouble, but selling Pearce and Ward only slightly delays the problem. These guys aren't on the stupid wages so whilst we might pay the tax, it'll still be a big bill next month. Therefore we need to sell Tel Ben Hiam, Kitson, Mokoena and Lawerence.

Failing that we'll end up selling the good youngsters, but hopefully after an auction involving 5 or 6 clubs.Well you will have some trouble trying to shift them older players especially Kitson, you have 7 days to raise that amount, and if my calculations are correct, most clubs will offer stupidly low prices for your players, and you will really be in the St, so Ipswich's 2 million 3rd bid dont look too bad, you will see, Ipswich have been the bravest and at least offered fair money, so we will see, 7 days and counting, if your bill aint paid by then its 10pts deduction and hello Div 1 if your lucky and allowed to continue alah Darlington springs to mind

Arsenal running the rule over Watford defender Adrian Marriapa over possible 4M transfer. Marriapa currently a target for Pardew's Newcastle however would rather stay in nearby to his London roots. The Watford defender currently has 18 months still to run on his current contract and would provide much needed funds for Watford to continue to rebuild.(8)(5)I guess Wenger is looking over the fence at the training ground.

Hi Ed,

Have you heard anything about the Howson transfer to Norwich? According to NCFC home page the deal was going to be wrapped up on Friday. On checking Leeds home page, there is no news of this either. Sky dont have anything either. If Ed can't give any news, can anyone else? {Ed001's Note - last I heard it was all agreed, probably take a few days to sort out his medical, with him having an injury. Insurance companies need to look into his long term history and his current medical records. Plus they will want to look at the details of any operations he has undergone and his recovery. It can take days these days.}}(6)(1)Thanks for taking the time to answer that. :-)They need to sign Howson to avoid getting sucked into a possible religation battle, now that most premiership teams have sussed them out

Daniel Pacheco is set to be released from his loan at Real Vallecano and in turn Athletico are set to release the player and give up their option to buy at the end of the season. He has played 8 games this season and has not scored. Paul Lambert is an admirer could this be why things are moving?(7)(2)I hope so. would love to see the little genius back

Argyle need to sign another striker and maybe even another centre mid but according to pafc website fletcher is having to be patient for any signings. So probably no one else will arrive this transfer window!(4)(0)

Celtic want to sign midfield mistro Sammy Clingon from Coventry city but Clingon still thinks he can play in football and not go in the sunday of the Scottish prem(2)(13)Get a grip, am better than clingon and am gish!Was this written by a 4 year old ?Maestro? you're having a laugh. He's more at home in Star Trek than on a football fied. a compelte waste of space. Scottish fans deserve him.Haha, priceless, I love the wind ups on here

West Ham had bids turned down on Sunday for Snodgrass and Rhodes, at this point in time no bid has been submitted for Jelavic. Both Leeds and Huddersfield are looking for silly money so doubtful if either gets done.(12)(7)Looks like wee got a stupid west ham support hear who don't know owt about football

to all of you who say ''you know someone'' inside southampton football club can you please stop posting on here? you are making us look like idiots true saints fans know cortese and adkins leave any transfer news behind closed doors (like it should be) so please stop posting, and portsmouth fans i really hope you find some investment soon. no TRUE saints fans want to see you out of business.(14)(3)After that performance last night i think saints did it for themselves if that is championship football i see better football in L1&2 you look a dreadful team.It was embarrassing last night, it really was. As much as i appreciate what cortese has done for the club he needs to get his head out his arse and just give the clubs the money they want for players. i'm sick of us getting these players for 750,000 whilst leicester and the rest sign the top class players. offer huddersfield what they want, or celtic or whoever. let us see some sign of intent ffs. we are a 2 man team and that needs to change!Jog on.........with 6 key players (First team starters missing!) we did well to keep it to 2-0!I hope we find an investment too! South Coast derby days are the epitome of the season!Dreadful team - yes it was but take your best 6 players out of your team and see how you doTake the 6 best players out of Pompey? If we take out 6 players we have a 5-a-side team with 2 subs...


24 Jan 2012 03:04:46
Apparently were signing Neymar, Lucas and Hulk. This is an attempt to bolster the SPL reputation. LMAO AYE AM TALKIN stE COZ HALF U LOT ON HERE ARE.
celtic have said they will only sell hooper for an "andy Carroll price" because he is better than him. McCourt is going to.Blackpool if celtic receive money upfront.
Dont see how any of these rumours are getting about. Too many ste talkers. Just watch the news, shut up or get a job with celtic as a scout if ur that interested.
As for europe. We deserve that spot. stey little french, italian and eastern European teams are involved. We were first british club to win the european cup and the only scottish team (aberdeen won the equivalent of the uefa cup). As for club size. We have a massive fan base that stretches worldwide, we are basically debt free and have a great history. Its more the league as a whole which drags us down reputation wise.(13)(9)Yes because the Scottish teams really lit up Europe this season! Even after getting a by in some cases. Piss poor league and teams!You wouldnt get 35 mil for Hooper, hes good dont get me wrong, but 6mil at most. And thats a pushLOL u scottish ladI'm sure you struggle to beat teams like ST mirren and kilmarnock, I feel for your teamWhy is Swansea and Cardiff in the English league and celtic and Rangers arent? Just sayinAndy Carrol money, are you serious!? That only happened because Liverpool wanted 15mil profit from Torres sale and Carrol purchase. Hooper hasn't played in a top league yet so asking for that kind of money is ridiculous. So expect him to go for around 6-8mil max!All those french, italian and eastern eurpoean teams are better than celtic and rangers, so no you do not deserve that spot! haha living in the past, european competitions are only concerned with not so distant past for spot allocation, thats why you dont have many, let alone automatic qualification haha get real!Because swansea and cardiff arent 300 to 400 miles away

Steve Lovell has decided not to sign a 6 month contract at the south coast club because he may sign for Scottish club in summer(3)(7)Steve lovell left bournemouth in october last year because of injury. He was playing through pain for the last months of his career, and his retirement was because of this. however, i wouldnt be surprised if he made a return if he can recover this injury as he isnt too old and looked like he could be a force in league 1.


23 Jan 2012 17:00:34
Hi Ed.
Looking at the collapse of the Maxi Lopez deal due to Tevez mucking around, are we looking at another striker, any names beating around, any truth behind Jordan Rhodes interest?
Also, looking around the web, what's the situation on Clint's future at the club? And what about Kerim, interest from united?
Thanks. {Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware Clint Dempsey is going nowhere in January. You are amongst many checking Rhodes out, again unlikely to be any movement there in Jan. To be honest, I really don't expect anything to happen at Fulham, I expect it to be a very quiet January all round.}(1)(3)

Gary Smith's first signing for Stevenage FC to be Colorado Rapids' highest ever goal scorer, Conor Casey. He will take the #9 squad number vacated by Guy Madjo after his move to Aldershot.(5)(4)

I'm told If Forest lose McGugan then they will be prepared to go as high as high as £400/500,000 plus add-ons for Ryan Hall. Ok Blues will say no one is going but I'm afraid if this offer does come in soon they will have to give it some consideration. Forest , again I'm told, will be desperate for a quick replacement which they'll have to snap up as there is so little time left in the window. I'm led to believe a handful of players are in mind but their favourite is Hall as he'll be their cheapest option but good money for Southend. The Reds will also know if Hall signs a new contract at Roots Hall it'll cost them a lot more in the summer. Believe me this has come from a very experienced and respected journalist.(3)(4)Ok no I dont believe for a few reasons.

- Southend wont sell anyone, were going for promotion and the league title why sell our best players?

- Southend will sell him at our price, and 500,000 is nowhere near what the club value him at.

- This "journalist" knows nothing about Southend.

Rumours that Jordan Rhodes was at St Marys tonight. Southampton or Leicester?? This was from someone who went to the match but not a saints or foxes fan. Adkins very quiet on transfers in post match interview tonight. Lets wait and see??(2)(40)Yeh, he was probably in the same black mercedes that Hooper was(n't) in, or the flight to southampton that Hooper was(n't) on......'course he was there mate

/rolleyes'rumour' - what he means is 'figment of my imagination' - if Rhodes was there (he wasn't) don't you think the SKY camera's would have found him, or did he spend the game hiding, seeing as he's the next Ronaldo/Beckham/Messi? Dream onIf Southampton fans seriously think they are primed for the premiership after watching that shocking game last night you have got to be having a laugh. You look a dreadful team and i cant believe you are 2nd in the league. As for Rhodes more likely Leicester i think that he will go to or is this one of the 18 players that saints were going to sign in January that so far have all fallen through.6 players missing you muppet included 3 of our best! even the likes of united etc would struggle without theiur best 3!

last night shows though we have a brilliant first team... but not a brilliant squad!

5 players due back for sat/tues though and new signing Lee!

UPSAnd their skint! Why have they not splashed the cash? Cause they've got secret money problems that cortese is keeping stum. Don't believe me what this space then. That's why they're relying on getting in the prem. it's prem or bust...Dont think saints are skint. New rules for football league to coincide with uefa champions league, mean that all football league clubs have to be self sufficient in line with revenue (turnover) etc etc.
FACT: saints bid over 5 million for Rodrigues from Burnley.
FACT: saints have bid over 5million for Hooper fron Celtic.
Skint, NO, just trying to run the club in line with the rules.He's much better than them!
