Alan McGregor to West Ham


Gentlemen, Gentlemen, Gentlemen...

Let's make something clear, no club will be able to sell all their "deadwood" and bring in 5 or 6 players. Celtic fans seem to be the worst culprits here, but there are people falling into the same trap here too.

Let's try and stick to rumours and not fantasy football.


PS Heard that Everton may be in serious financial difficulties.


To the person who wrote "To these Parkhead plebs on here, give us a break, Rangers do not have to sell players in January, Celtic do, Rangers have still to receive the majority of their Champions League money, in total £15m, this will go to banks, therefore our debt will be nearly halved, prospective buyers are well aware of this, expect new buyers to complete their deal in the next few weeks, now Celtic, with only pennies that came in from their European fiasco, Dr.Death and the board want their money, don't believe what Liewell's spinning, Celtic are in debt, more than a couple of million, they have to sell players in January, or their debt will increase to around what Rangers new figure(£13/15m)this is no bull, this is from my source a concerned shareholder in Celtic FC, worrying times indeed for Timothy!"

what have you been smoking, £15 million in champions league money, honestly buddy turn of your computer and never use it again. a def Rangers fire sale in Jan, Boyd might stay till the summer but sign a pre season and leave for free, if rangers can get 500–1mill for him in Jan then they'll take it. look for rangers to bring in some loans but with the talent coming through it could be few more kids breaking into the 1st team.
Celtic to chop the dead wood away and get a few new faces as well as players coming back from load spells.


I have heard 2day from a colleague that glasgow rangers have agreed to sell pedro mendes to burnley for £2.5million also supposedly leaving is kyle lafferty to middlesborough for £2.5 million . as a rangers fan myself i think if we lose these two players it would not be a big loss as celtic are not on top gear the knew they seem to not be able to c out matches all the better for rangers but i do believe celtic will come good and make a good seasson as this year has been terible with rangers financel mess all sorts of crazy rumours .


Lfc rumours
masch won't leave – babel will leave – dossena will leave – riera won't leave – voronin may leave

transfer targets in :–
sobis, cole, suarez, johnson, pandev, kjaer, upson, elia, wickham, eduardo, huntelaar
not all will b signed if any these are purely gossip but do seem reasonable


To the guy who thinks Champs League money is halving Rangers debt. Economic illiteracy of the first order. This money is required to prevent further losses rather than pay off any. Any takeover will cost £30 million to clear debt plus £55 million to various companies in the Murray web. Prepare for any Rangers player worth a fee to leave in January. Reserves to the fore. Very worrying times for Billy.


Leeds United set to be bidding for one of Simon Hackney, David Fox or Lee Hendrie in January. Just a rumour I'm afraid. I'd say that the favourite would be Hackney, as Colchester will sooner hold on to the in–form Fox and Lee Hendrie is past it. Bid for Gradel too, but don't know where Leicester stand on that front.
1. Thanks SHOOTER, I'm 29, and have been posting on here since you removed excrement from your nappy. Dan Fox is class aswell; Celtic and Scotland fans just expect way too much.
2. Yes sorry; a misprint on previous rumour, which I'm surprised the editor did not grill me for, Coates is indeed close to his NORTHERN IRELAND call–up, not REP. OF IRELAND. Sincere apologies for this deception.
Malcolm Shaffer (correctly spelt)

{editor's note – I thought I had gotten it wrong to be honest lol. Was assuming I was thinking of the wrong player or there were two with the same name}


To the fool who says bqrca are more interested in ngog then why is he in loan talks with Blackburn for a possible d dunn to Liverpool for 4 mil plus ngnog for a year loan .haha some people just make stuff up LOL you can even go in the Blackburn fan shop and see the picture of ngog at a Blackburn training session bobs your uncle :)


Big news for tottenham fans!!! I do harry redknapps garden and overheard a telephone conversation the other day whilst waiting for my wages... heres what i heard

"theres no fking way jermain is going to united, tell that ct to go harrass some other wnker for one of their best players, do you think im a fking mug!"

Now i don't have a clue who he was talking to or if its defoe or jenas (more likely defoe, ie. "best players") but it sounds like united may be trying to rob another player from spurs!!


Burnley will sign Eddie Nolan from Preston North End for 750k in January on a 4 year contract. The young Irish defender has been playing at left back for PNE but Owen Coyle sees his long term future at centre back.


Burnley will complete the big transfer coup of January with the £5.5m transfer of Porto's Brazilian striker 'Hulk'.

This will initially be a loan move till the end of the season, which will be made permanent if Burnley avoid relegation. This move will unfortunately mean the end of the road for David Nugent at Burnley, who has failed to win himself a permanent contract.


Reading and scunthorpe and trying to sign out of favour burnley srtiker martin paterson on loan
the striker not featured much this season and likes the idea of a loan deal to get his form back

I have some very interesting info concerning barcelona and liverpool. A deal has been reached between both the clubs concerning mascherano's sale for £35 m. But the very interesting and shocking news is that barca also want n'gog and lauri dalla valle(a young finnish striker. Forget everyone this kid is a real gem, he will surely rule the footballing world for years) for an astonishing fee of £28 m to £30m for both. But the problem is that wolfsburg, villareal, milan, napoli, bayern munich, arsenal also interested in n'gog. Before everyone jumping on me, I work as an junior assistant to one of the many barca scouts(can't take out the name). We have been watching n'gog for over a year now, the word is that he has improved tremendously and has a lot of untapped potential, we can say that pepe wants n'gog more than masch. This is not a rumour, it's a fact. I have some liverpool news on transfers. Simon Kjaer is definately signing for the reds for £12m in the summer. I've been staying in england for over 8 months now, i've a lot of news about arsenal and liverpool. I 'l update soon.


Bojan...he gets a lot of mentions on here and ive seen valuations of 30 million, Barca would snap anyones hand off for anything over 15 million or even less.he just has'nt lived up to his early publicity, Pedro/Iniesta are ahead of him for the left wing spot.remember Dos Santos? peddled to SPURS loaned out to IPSWICH what a mistake. Dos Santos and Bojan were going to be the next big thing at Barca.They are tracking Iker Muniain [athletic bilbao]still only 16, with a view to buy and loan back for a season and a half [this is a popular move in spain].As athletic are my other team i hope iam wrong but iam not..onward to Wigan on saturday we definately won't score 9 but hopefully 3 points for Sunderland..i mentioned ages ago Anton Ferdinand to leave, it looks certain in january. don't let the door hit your fat arse on the way out you overated git..finally not being funny here but, , liverpool fans theres lots of new grounds and cities that you havent visited in the Europa league think of it as an adventure its only for one season[bilbao is the best place for a piss up, trust me].you will be back in cl next season, Alonso


Man u transfers
Rio–retire due to injury(after world cup)
None of carrick, anderson, berba, o'shea, brown will be sold SAF see's them as part of his final team
Akinfeev–18m&tosic 12 month loan
Shawcross or Cahill–10m–15m
laajic–arrive jan
diouf–arrive in jan


Man.c forgotten striker wil be on the way outa the club in jan for around the 2/3 million area.birmingham, wigan, blackburn, portsmouth, stoke, hull n bolton av all been creditd with an interest.also if pavulechenko leaves toottenham harry will also make a move for him...benjani wil defo be on the move.

m.johnson of city could also be on the move with a loan deal to eitha fulham, westham or blackburn on the cards.

matty fryatt n jamie ward are 2 of westbroms targets with sanchez watt, n.delfounso and j.vaughan r all loan targets.


To these Parkhead plebs on here, give us a break, Rangers do not have to sell players in January, Celtic do, Rangers have still to receive the majority of their Champions League money, in total £15m, this will go to banks, therefore our debt will be nearly halved, prospective buyers are well aware of this, expect new buyers to complete their deal in the next few weeks, now Celtic, with only pennies that came in from their European fiasco, Dr.Death and the board want their money, don't believe what Liewell's spinning, Celtic are in debt, more than a couple of million, they have to sell players in January, or their debt will increase to around what Rangers new figure(£13/15m)this is no bull, this is from my source a concerned shareholder in Celtic FC, worrying times indeed for Timothy!


Babel is definately out! Rafa wanted to keep him as he believes the lad will eventually come good but after his cynically timed outburst, his attitude is damaging the dressing room and that is the last straw, rumours are we'll accept as little as 6m for him as we are desperate for money in Jan. Rafa will not allow Masch to move in Jan, but he will be off in the summer, anyone who thinks different is deluded. Rafa is one of the most stubborn men alive! Therefore don't expect major changes in Jan. Ngog to stay up front, Pandev to come in for a small fee. Kjaer (spelling) or a.n. other centre back in. Thats it! If we get a CB skrtl will be off in the summer. Masch will go to Barca (cash plus a player)and Riera will go for 7–8m. Rafa will look to buy a CM and two wingers. Also expect to see a bit more of Pacheco and Eccleston next year!
Right Torres– there is some utter rubbish on here and ive said it before. Believe it or not i have spoken to Torres (briefly) and i asked him about rumours, he just smiles. He doesn't sit and explain his future plans except to say he is going nowhere! So all this i met nando and he said "big long in depth stuff" is crap. Face it he isn't leaving that may change in a season or two but right now and the summer he is LFC. This is an honest post based on local rumours and not football manager! Oh and a short chat in a car park in Southport shortly after the Confed cup back in the summer.


Rangers will complete the signing of Fulham's Irish defender Chris Baird in Jan.


The terriers are looking to sign 2 players in the January window.

Looking to exploit Tranmere's troubles a bid for Ash Taylor, a robust tough tackling player. he is highly thought of and would be a great asset to the club in years to come.

Out of favour Ben Burgess from Blackpool.
Not a fans favorite but still a regular first team pick Burgess divides the seaside fans and a £200, 000 offer could see him make his way over the Pennines. Good score rate in league one, but struggling in the Championship, might be enough to get us up.


Nottingham Forest are hoping to add 2 more Premiership players on loan before the window closes tomorrow. To add to the capture of Nicky Shorey.


This is just a rumor i have heard and it's a good one . . Pep guirdiola is being lined up as arsene wengers replacement. Pep only signed a 2year deal at barca meaning he is free to leave in the summer. He will then join arsenal as a backroom staff member . He was wengers guest at the villa game last season and often phones wenger for advice . So fingers crossed this happens because this young coach has all of wengers attributes and will automatically gain the respect of the arsenal players .. Let wait eh!


Lee Wallace of Hearts is set to hand in a transfer request as he wishes to leave the club as he is fed up of being there.

It is understood that he also does not like manager Csaba Laszlo, who he believes has lost the support of the dressing room. Lee himself is also fed up with Csaba constantly telling him that he would not be in the Scotland squad had it not been for him and that if he was not at Hearts it would never of happened.


Rumours are mounting in South Wales that Cardiff boss Dave Jones is looking at bringing in out of favour Welsh international Rob Edwards in from Blackpool for a reported 150k in Jan, Dave Jones originally signed Rob from Aston Villa whilst in charge of Wolves, this has been faced with mixed reactions from the Bluebirds faithfull who feel their is enough cover at the back.


Leeds are said to be looking at Andy Iro from Columbus Crew, he is a big, English, left footed centre back.
From the same scouting network that got them Somma and Grella


Firstly Rangers fans can dream on. There will be no huge takeover and huge cash injection. Nobody wants the, as a) Rangers brand is mud in Europe right now & b) the debt is huge and there is no money to be made in Scottish football. Players will leave in Jan. Fact. Boughy is off but tht by no means a bad thing, Boyd too as he will not accept a wage cut and Rothen (Rotten) will be allowed to leave. Beasley and one or two others as well. Wilson a ready made replacement for Boughy and Smith will be confirmed LB with more cash to be gained from selling Papac. However, remaining squad will still challenge as Celtic in a mess. Not financially just Mowbray has lost the squad. Power rift at Celtic Park. He has offered to resign 3 TIMES already and been rejected by the board but a number of players unhappy with him.


To young Malcolm Shaffter, Danny Fox is never going to go to the La Liga as he is total mince and worse than Liz Naylor at Celtic. Also Colin Coates is from the North so he wasn't ‘set for international glory' when the Republic went out. Anyways Michael Stewart from Hearts and Anthony Stokes from Hibs sign for Celtic in January.


With Liverpool out of the Champions League and in the Europa League, Rafa will have little to none money to spend this January, however he will have some. Philipp Degen knows that he si not good enough for Liverpool and needs to move in January to be in the Switzerland World Cup Squad. A move to Greece has been mentioned with panathinaikos looking for a new Right Back. Also, Fulham, Dinamo Zagreb and FC Twente are also interested. The is looking at £3m Ryan Babel has had enough of Liverpool and wants a move to Italy with Roma and Sampdoria tracking his progress. He is also atracting interest from Spain with Atletico Madrid interested. The fee will be £8.5m. Andriy Voronin has proved to be one to many pay checks signed each week and will move back to Germany with Hamburg, Wolfsburg and Frankfurt all interested. His preference is Wolfsburg as they are in the Champions League, however with Grafite and Dxeko their star strikers, he will probably be the benchwarmer. £4m the fee. Finally, Andrea Dossena is displeased with his role at Anfield this season and wants to move back to Italy in order to regain his Italy spot. Napoli are the most likely club he will go to for £4.5m. Rafa will have £20m to save Liverpool's season. Goran Pandev will be signed for 3m as cover for Torres. Originally he wanted him to sign a pre–contract with them, however with Liverpool in the middle of a striking crisis, Rafa is ready to put forward plans and sign him in January. Rafa also wants to sign a centre back and a left winger. Adam Johnson is the number one target as he can add some flair to the side and he would cost the minimal for £4m. Rafa is keen to strengthen Liverpool's ties with AS Roma by offering £13m plus Daniel Ayala and Peter Gulasci for Philipp Mexes. he is seen as the man to help Liverpool's tragic defence


Manchester United News

Im affraid that Vidic is leaving Old Trafford by summer and Rio is hurt.
United got short term replacements ready in Brown and O'Shea but SAF will sign the Danish international Simon Kjaer(20) from Palermo in January to join by summer. Liverpool wants Kjaer as well and the prize could be between £ 6–11 mill. depending on, if Kjaers present contract will be renewed (release clause). Kjaer and Evans are the future!

I don't believe in any big transfers i January. Berba, Nani and Carrick will stay. Its bad for the mentality with mid–season transfers and SAF knows that.

The Red Devil from Denmark


In reply to the chap who posted about Eddie Howe not going, and Bournemouth/Dorchester ownership.

Sorry, but the FA are re–opening the case on grounds that Mitchell, through his sons, was still influencing things at Dorchester Town.

The rules on dual–ownership are very clear, and Bournemouth are headed for trouble in the New Year.

It'll be interesting whatever happens, and if you know my source have a word with him and ask him how Mitchell treated him over at Dorchester and the LIES he's told them.

Mitchell will treat Bournemouth with the same contempt as he treated Dorchester with, once he gets bored or can find a way to buy the land Dean Court is on (remember the club don't own the land!)

Mitchell, Mostyn, Murry and Mitchell's Son In Law – wouldn't trust any of them! Don't let the fact that we're doing well in the league mask the reality. Eddie deserves ALL the praise – he's been nothing short of brilliant for us, and I expect to see him move on soon.

The stuff will hit the fan early 2010 FACT!


Alex ferguson will buy 3 players in january, sell 3 players and also loan out 3 players.
the arrivals will be stefan kiessling 15 million, gary cahill 10 million and david silva 24 million.
nani will be sold to ac milan for 16 million, welbeck to sunderland for 9 million and gibson to aston villa for 8 million. the players going out on loan are tosic, macheda and possebon who will be called back from braga to go to the championship side reading on loan till end of the season.
adem ljajic will arrive in january from partizan belgrade along with mame diouf from swedish club molde.


Liverpool's lack of progress in the Champions League has forced the sale of Mascherano to be brought forward, Barcelona are keen to do the deal before the world cup and before Man City start sniffing around. Expect Mascherano to leave for about 30m pure cash. This leaves Liverpool's midfield exposed to the injury prone Gerrard and Alberto and the useless Lucas. Therefore Rafa will bring in Steven Defour (15m) as his number 1 signing. I have heard that Rafa will target cash strapped West Ham, but he is after Dyer and Parker (both English) and believes he can get them cheap. Kuyt will be asked to play up front with Torres and Ngog and Babel (if he is still at Anfield) as backup. The rumour about Wengers interest in Babel is apparently true so maybe he will move on but Arsene is shrewd with cash so do not expect a huge transfer fee (I heard 4m may swing it). Riise is coming in on loan and Liverpool are trying to Van der Vaart as well. If Liverpool can get rid of Dossena, Degen and Voorin expect another 6 – 8 million player to come in. That's all folks KINGCARLOS


Big news around the pride park arena paul hart will come in and help his old friend nigel clough through this season misery.expect this to be a done deal before friday


Following today's BBC story on out–of–contract Irish players, several lower league clubs will attempt to raid Bankrupt Irish clubs for bargain players.

Macclesfield will sign Glen Crowe and Kevin Braniff will sign for Oldham Athletic.


With Wengers squad being stretched to the bare bones at the moment expect 3 new players to come in during the January transfer window. VanPersie and Bendtner's injuries show just how vulnerable Arsenal are and they lacked any potency against Sunderland. Loic Remy will join from Nice for 8–9mil after making an impressive start to the season. Arsenal will also bolster their midfield options with the addition of Maicosuel from Hoffenheim to add a bit more steel to the middle, he will join for 5–6mil. Also AW will move for Torino youngster Ogbonna who is being scouted as we speak and provides good cover for the left and central defense, he will cost 3–4mil. Any other signings would be dependent on departures which seems unlikely. Should Senderos and Silvestre seek an exit then a move for Udinese's Zapata could be on the cards.
These are going to happen, rumours of any overhaul or 15mil+ signings are way off the mark.


MUFC: Rumours from football HQ (Old Trafford) is that there will be no big signings in January and the signals are already out there. SAF talking of no value for money available and the fact that we rarely buy in Janaury anyway. The team is doing well and it simply takes too long for a Janaury purchase to settle in. we will be seeing a lot of Macheda and Wellbeck over the next month or so. They will be given their chance so as to demonstrate that the Champions do not need to buy big in January.


Mascherano to sign for Juventus in summer swap for Giovinco, Tiago and Trezaguet no money involved.Riera will sign for AC Milan for £8mil Torres will sign for Man City in the Summer for 25mil+ Santa Cruz and either Petrov. the £25mil wil be used to sign knightley from wolves £4mil, Pandev free and big signing of bojan and pedro from barcelona for combined £30mil. Liverpool will then have a strong squad with atleast 3 strikers who can score in pandev trez and santa cruz with n'gog and kuyt subs. knightly and pedro can rotate on the right wing with giovinco and benayoun as attacking mid and tiago and gerrard in the centre, and petrov and aurelio on the left


After crashing out of Europe Rangers season is only going to get worse. Celtic will spend and ship out their dead wood (McDonald, Caldwell, McManus, Naylor, Jobby and his brother Mark Brown and Samaras) Rangers will lose Davis, Bougerra, Boyd and possibly Mendes in January. They will buy NO–ONE, at best a panic loan move to similar effect as the old French guy in the summer. I fully expect Celtic to turn their season around and win the league. Dundee Utd and Hib will push for a few more weeks but not much longer.(Would be great if they did challenge this year.)

Jerry Jackson (In the know)


Rangers (ins) None (Outs) Boyd, unless offered a new contract as Rangers won't want to lose him for free in summer.

Celtic (ins) Robbie Keane, yeah right they couldn't afford his wages let alone a transfer fee. Matthew Kilgallon, possible for about £3 million or £4 million. Darren O'Dea, recalled from loan. (Outs) Stephen McManus, i hope so – Celtic should pay someone to take him.


To Malcom Shaffer, I do believe Mr Coates is Northern Irish, the rumour being he is attracting interest from a number of Championship sides, a move in Janurary is definately on the cards


Liverpool will sell Mascherano for £30 million plus Thierry Henry this January. They will sell him now rather than the summer because they can command a better deal now (because it includes a world class forward.) also due to LFC's elimination from the champions league.

Ruud Van Nisterlrooy and Rafael Van Der Vaart will come in on loan aswell.

Liverpool will then use the full £30 million pound to buy Danielle De Rossi to team him up will Aquilani. Rafa has put De Rossi top of his wish list if Mascherano was to leave.

Babel and Voronin will both leave in January, Liverpool hope to raise £10–12 million for the pair.

A complete overhaul of the squad will happen in the summer. Kuyt, Riera, Kyrgiakos, Dossena, and Degen will all be sold.


Rafa Benitez will leave Liverpool by Christmas and a compensation package is being sorted. Hicks and Gillett want Hiddink , O`Neil or Mourinho
