  I have just returned from Madrid where I watched Liverpool play Athletico.

I saw Rafa with Kun Augero and Luis Garica in a Tapas bar in the Sol area of Madrid. Perhaps just a coincidence but I hope not. I suspect Luis would come back to help Augero settle in. Augero is also Mascherano's room mate on international duty. Fingers crossed.
  No christiano ronaldo will not be leaving in the summer. Ramon Calderon has said he is no longer interested and ronaldo himself has now said he wants to play in the champions league final "against" real madrid.
  I am a waiter in an italian restaurant in west london, zola and nani of west ham were in for dinner and was overheard speaking of gudjonsson of barcelona joining the club in january and how they are planning on triming the defence. also answered call from ancellotti of ac milan. if any of this comes to fruition you heard it here first. Noseyparker.!!!
  Cristiano Ronaldo leaving in the summer, Its about time. We don't need divers in the premier league.
  Newcastle will raid spurs in january when a new owner has taken over and keegan/shearer is manager for these players:modric,bale and pavyluchencko newcastle will then take portugese sensation danny from cska after just signing him then we will pick up ivanovic on loan from chelsea and finally bring in saviola on a five year deal.if newcastle have a good season next year berbatov will sign as he is a newcastle fan.
Toon 4 europe
  ((( AFC Bulletin )))

Eboue 2 leave AFC in Jan to sign 4 JUVENTAS , expect Mark Randall 2 be his replacement that's why Randall signed a new deal with AFC .
  Juande Ramos will bring in Microsoft Windows Defender in January to shore up his leaky defense.
  Tottenham are looking to sign the following to the team in January: The problem they face is that because they need players, they will have to pay inflated prices

Emile Heskey – 5mil
Scott Parker – 10mil
Wayne Bridge – 8mil
Sami Hyypia – 3mil

They also want to tempt Makelele back to london but this is unlikely.
  To the guy who said LFC would pay 6 million for Barragan of deportivo,LFC have buy back clause for 425,000 for also like to know if yanks borrowed £350,000,000 to build stadium at liverpool and its not been built why are the reds in debt????theiving yankers.
  Portsmouth will raid arsenal this january for many youngsters. some will be permanent in part exchange for niko and some will be loan deals with a view to a permanent deal.

players harry is interested in are, denilson, song, djourou. these are the players likely to be involved in a swap deal with krancjar. with traore thrown in there as well. ramsey could be signed on loan.

belhadj will be signed permanently for a fee of around 3 million.

ben sahar of chelsea could be signed permanently in the summer.
  The unseateled rangers striker kris boyd is on the move in january he is hardly playing a part in rangers 1st team and wants to get regular 1st team football. the teams looking 2 sign him are spurs blackburn or wign for a fee around 4 million
  Over the past few years i have made a killing betting on the next manager to come/go from clubs. I do get a little insider help though. The latest rumour doing the rounds is that Charlton have had it with Pardew and QPR with Dowie. They will both be gone before the next transfer window in January. Also to add to this Newcastle will be sold this could be as early as 7th November to an as of yet unknown bidder. Rumour has it that Keegan will be appointed into the dreaded director of football role with Shearer as first team manager, depending on who the new owner is.
  Rumours in Glasgow is that Rangers keeper Allan McGregor is off to Tottenham in January, fee around £6 million.
  Ninis to arsenal the boy is a greek wonderkid

  Liverpool FC Transfers

January Transfers:IN
Mark Noble–West Ham–8m
Dean Ashton–West Ham–10m

Summer Transfers:IN
David Wheater–Middlesbrough–7m
Gareth Bale–Tottenham–12m
Jakub Blaszczykowski–Dortmund–6M
Degen–Schalke–Part Exchange
Agger–AC Milan–12m

Not all these will happen but Rafa wants them and Parry has put the price on them.
  Jose Mourinho will return to Chelsea in 2011 when his contract at Inter runs out. Mourinho has announced that he will return to the premier league when his contract runs out at Inter, and Scolari will only be in managment for another 5 or so years, so Mourinho will be his replacement.

You heard it from me first,
  Tottenham star Jon Woodgate is wanted by Rafa at Liverpool. Contact has been made and Woodgate will demand a January transfer. The fee will be euro 10,000,000
  Benitez has been closing in on jakub blaszczykowski behind the scenes for quite some time now and the deal will be concluded for 8 million. Rafa is also eyeing a new right back and has three on his wish list, Schalke's Rafinha tops the list with st etienne's mouhamadou dabo and deportivo's antonio barragan also targets.

Rafinha 8 million
Dabo 5million
Barragan 6 million
  To the person who said his brother knew about the Nowrich Derby 'fix' before it happened, why didnt you place a bet?
On a more serious note Derby are looking to sign Stoke's Ryan Shawcross and Vincent Pericard on loan. Also Stoke striker Dave Kitson is unhappy at the Brit and could move back to Reading on loan, possibly with a view to a swap for Kevin Doyle in January.
Hearts boss Csaba Laszlo has been offered Fabio Vignaroli by former midfielder Stefano Salvatori.He will first have a weeks trial at Kilmarnock before joining Hearts on a trial basis.
Any deal for the striker could be dependant on Hearts releasing players to fund such a move.
  To the guy who wanted to say Ramsey is a lifelong United fan,––––unfortunately you are wrong there mate, he is a lifelong Liverpool fan.
  Leicester are keen to sign Bristol Rovers' in–form striker Richard Lambert for £500k to help them push for promotion. Lambert has also been getting attention from Carlisle & Barnsley. It is thought a fee of £300–£500k will secure the hit mans transfer.
  To the person that said
"wat ur talkin about there is a deduction of points and that case was delt with by the fa, so was delt with "in house" according 2 a court of law. the fa have made there decision on the case and according 2 the fa it has been delt with. the blades want compansation for the finacal loss they've recevied because of west hams "cheating" and they are pursuing them in a court of law thus no president is set. also when u take over a business u take on all debts of the club and as the lawsuit was lodged b4 the sale of the club then the new owners are lyable for the out cum of the lawsuit as it was already in place b4 their ownership. as for the out cum of the case i highly doubt they will be able 2 prove in a court of law that the breaking of the rules is directly to blame for there relegation thus costing them money so i suspect it will be thrown out of court, but in the scenario that the blades win then the current adminastration at west ham are lyable alhtough they would almost certainly appeal and the cycle will go on again."

West Ham's new owners bought the club half way through the season when Tevez was playing when he apparently weren't allowed to be, which means before your law suit was lodged.

  Hearts FC

Csaba Lazlo has been instructed by Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov to cut costs and sell players before he can get any in. Romanov wants to get in players with the potential to sell in the future as well as securing them on small basic wages with high bonuses. Kingston will be first out the door with Romanov determined to get at least £4 million for the Ghanaian International. Berra is desperate to leave and wants a new challenge– recent off the pitch problems has quickened up his decision after another “disagreement” with Marius Zaliukas , several senior players are said to be furious at the poor attitude Zaliukas continues to show along with Audrius Ksanavicius. According to my source (a senior player at Hearts) these two players “arrogant” and “unprofessional“ attitude is causing unrest in the dressing room amongst other players who, “continue to work hard everyday in training and never get a chance in the first team while Zaliukas and Ksanavicius are always given opportunities they do not deserve"
  Expect Leeds United to sign 1 or 2 defenders in the January transfer window, also a winger on loan.
Jerry Smart
  Have heard g barry joining in january. xavi alonso to arsenal in summer with fabregas joining barcelona.thirry henry to inter to replace cruz. christiano ronaldo to real madrid with wes sneider to man utd.
  Believe me when I say I'm just as unhappy as the next Liverpool fan what with Emile Heskey ready to return to Anfield. this is because he will cost nothing and he will always give 100% at the club, despite him being shit. Rafa will also move for Michael Owen on a free. And yes you Mancs, Kameni will join you lot.
  Hahaha poor charlton athletic fans looks like you will be selling rather than buying now Zabeel Investments have pulled out of a deal to buy Charlton
