To the person who said: Roman Pavlyuchenko to Doncaster Rovers on loan until end of season.

What have you been smoking? Why would he go to doncaster when there are premiership teams after him. You couldnt afford him and he wouldn't drop a league anyway.

Anyone got good Barnsley FC news?

and by the way, Macken wouldn't go to leeds scum, he wants to end his career at oakwell and Bogdanovic is one of our best players and top goalscorer, why would we sell him?


26 Jan 2010 21:10:47
Just a geography lesson for the numbnut who said treble to the west end "we are the people."last time i checked your mighty glasgow rangers was located in the south side.anyway, sean st ledger;kevin kilbane;anthony stokes should be enough to bring title home to paradise.your house of cards is starting to crumble.Y.N.W.A

I was at an interesting meeting today. Emirates are looking to take over the premier league sponsorship from 2011/2012. It will be known as the Emirates Premier League. Also heard that Benitez has been sacked, its just a question of when he will leave. Liverpool don't want to be managerless so they are looking at a replacement. Either way he won't be around in a few weeks.


26 Jan 2010 21:31:04

Scott Arfield expected to sign a 3 year contract with Coventry before the Bairns game against Rangers on Saturday 30 January 2009.

The fee is rumoured to be £350k plis a 10% sell on clause.

26 Jan 2010 20:33:35
Arsenal are still in the hunt to snatch fulhams Smalling. Man U have yet to finalise the contract and how they will pay the £7m to fulham. Only saving point for Ferguson is Wenger wants the player straight away rather than at the end of the season meaning fulham would need to buy a replacement this week which is why their first bid was turned down – Arsenal now could offer more to beat their rivals to it. Huntelaar or Victor Moses will be signed even though Wenger says he is not interested.

From the man who was wrecked for first saying Campbell would re–sign! TRUST IN ME


26 Jan 2010 20:42:25
Re: Sorry, but that is rubbish. It really is. Firstly, we have a top 4, not a top 5. Secondly, if your "old firm" were so rich and good at the game, they wouldn't be signing people from the likes of Aberdeen would they? And if those at Aberdeen, Hibs etc. were that good, do you really think they'd stay in the SPL? Me neither.

You missed the point you plum, he said if they had the same money..of course they can only sign players from these clubs, winning the SPL you get about 5 million, coming bottom of the premiership you get 25 million. Noone argues that the old firm can compete finacially but you cannot dispute the size of celtic and rangers in both support, infrastructure.and something you clearly no F–all about, passion. If they were in the EPL they would definitely do well. Ignorant Pri#k

Celtic Ins: St ledger in if Mcuseless off to boro/wigan

C Davis if Villa sign another defender

Hail Hail


26 Jan 2010 19:17:04
Fulham are likely to make an offer for Real Madrid legend Guti, who is uncertain about his future at the bernabau.


26 Jan 2010 19:26:32
Movement finally on the cards at old traford which will see a VERY unhappy nani(out of favour and struggling for WC place) and an over priced berbatov move in a swap deal with Real Madrid. The deal will see last years summer target Karim Benzeme and much needed defensive midfielder Mahamadou Diarra leave the bernabeu on friday with Man united paying the spanish giants a further £12million at the end of the season.


26 Jan 2010 19:28:32
Birmingham have lost interest in Mgeady and Bable
asking price far to much for inconsistant players
there interest has switched to the pompey winger Begyl and steve Hunt but the main priority is a striker and the russian from spurs fits the bill
along with Janko it is 99% sure that a wide man and a striker will be signed in the next 5 days
Mcliesh comment "this club has not been able to compete in the transfere market for years so we will do it carefully"


26 Jan 2010 19:29:03
I've heard Arsenal have made an approach to Porto about the possible signing of player Hulk. Arsene Wenger is said to be a big admirer of the brazilian's rough and ruggid style of football.


26 Jan 2010 18:06:00
People really shouldnt just use their imagination on here. They should use common sense instead. Look at it like this:

– Liverpool want a striker on loan because they don't have much money. AC Milan only want to send Huntelaar out on loan – they don't want to sell permenantly.

– Crystal Palace have entered administration meaning that they have to accept any bids for their players. Moses has already stated that he is a Liverpool supporter and would like to move there. One bid of £2m has already been rejected. If they go back with £3m, then he is likely to go.

Any other deals for the Reds will be in the summer when Rafa will have £20m plus sales to spend. The sales are likely to be Mascherano and Babel – bringing in about £30m. Aurelio will leave on a Bosman. Also likely to leave are Spearing, El Zhar and The Greek. With the £50m that Rafa will have to spend he will try to buy a left back, a centre back and a replacement for Mascherano. The centre back will be Kjaer. The left back will be Taiwo, and the midfielder will be Defour. (If he gets his first choices). Also joining will be Chamakh and Jovanovic on Bosmans.

Basically Rafa will then have at least two players for every position:

GK: Reina / Cavalieri
RB: Johnson / Degen / Kelly / Darby
CB: Carragher / Skrtel / Agger / Kjaer
LB: Taiwo / Insua
CM: Gerrard / Aquilani / Lucas / Defour
LM: Moses / Riera
RM: Benayoun / Kuyt
CF: Torres / Ngog / Jovanovic / Chamakh


26 Jan 2010 18:09:04
Smalling signing for Manu not Arsenal.


26 Jan 2010 18:10:59
Here are some rumours regarding West Ham United:
David Bently – on loan for the remainder of the season with a view to a permenant move
Eidur Gudjohnson – signing for West HAm on a free transfer!
Benni McCarthey – signing for a 2 and a half years for 2.15million!

Apart from those West ham are also interested in:
James Beattie
Alan Hutton

They have lost interest in Sergey Korilenko as they wanted a more recognised striker and have dropped their interest in Benjani as it looks like he will have more involvement in Mancini's squad at Man City.

Any news on Palace? Gone into administration and I would like to know any rumours about potential buyers. Please Post.'

Very sad that Palace have gone into administration.

Have heard Ron Noades may offer the club a 'bridging loan' so that they can survive this season.

A new buyer will definitely be in place by July.

What is certain is that Victor Moses, Sean Scannell and other good quality players will be leaving Selhurst Park in order to balance the books.


26 Jan 2010 18:56:27
Rafa's scouts have just returned from Honduras, and tomorrow is likely to see the unveiling of gifted striker Georgie Welcome at Anfield.

Editor, plz put this in Rumours page.
To the guy who wrote:
"Strong rumours at boro that Strachan will only be allowed some loan signings as he has been given the next 8 matches to turn results round or he will be sacked.
Apparently clause in contract allowing it to be terminted without compensation depending on league position.
This is not a rumour this is from John Robertsons family member, Robertson is not happy at all with the level of player they are having to go after and the budget they are working on, and he is ready to walk anyway but is staying loyal to strachan"

John Robertson is NOT at Middlesborough, he is at Aston Villa with Martin O'Neil. If anybody else wants to make up random lie's, please make it a little bit realistic and try getting some names correct.


26 Jan 2010 19:05:39
Man city to sign Gago on loan to stengthen up their midfield. Also Aston Villa are intrested in signing Celtic Winger Aiden Mcgeady and Reading keeper Adam Federici.

Pompey News:

Well, a partial silver lining has appeared with the news today that the embargo has been lifted.

However, the club is NOT out of danger – it needs new and proper investment or there's a good chance it will be gone by the start of the new season.

As for rumours, only loans and free transfers allowed at Pompey – have heard that Quinton Fortune and Steve MacLean are interested in moving to FP. Darron Gibson could also join on loan until the end of the season.

Pompey will do well to stay up, but they need to sort out off the field problems asap!


26 Jan 2010 17:13:52
My colleague has just returned from a business trip (with Navarro Consultores) in Valencia, Spain. Over lunch the small talk turned to football and one of the Spanish associates mentioned that David Villa will be moving to Liverpool FC after the world cup. Apparently he said that Villa was interviewed recently and said that he had a desire to play in the Premier League but only for Liverpool FC as he has many friends there. Now I don't know if this is true or not but in the past David Villa has been seen at Anfield (director's box) and at Melwood. The Echo and Daily Post both have photographs of this.

26 Jan 2010 16:02:25
Has anyone on here actually read up on klass jan huntelaar, victor moses or roman pavlyuchenko.

huntelaars agent Arnold Oosterveer has already stated that he will be joing everton on loan before the end of the week, all that's left to do is medical, check , and so can we stop with the hes at spurs oh hes going liverpool, he will sign for birmingham tommorrow rubbish.

victor moses has stated his desire to move to anfield, liverpool have already said they offered 2 million which was rejected but will return with a take it or leave it offer of 3 million plus jay spearing on loan for 6 months. so no hes not going arsenal or man u .

roman pavlyuchenko will complete a 10 million pund move to birmingham on friday according to and the moscow news ( have to go through google to get on it).

i also heard a rumour about axel witsel of standard liege signing for liverpool before the end of the window.

26 Jan 2010 14:27:20
"Message to Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea

If the old firm were in the EPL with the money you have we would easily break into the top 5 within 2 seasons."

I think I speak for the EPL when I say..

Sorry, but that is rubbish. It really is. Firstly, we have a top 4, not a top 5. Secondly, if your "old firm" were so rich and good at the game, they wouldn't be signing people from the likes of Aberdeen would they? And if those at Aberdeen, Hibs etc. were that good, do you really think they'd stay in the SPL? Me neither.

Some rumours, Huntelaar to Liverpool (hopefully) and maybe Turan if Rafa can sort the cash out or get a loan deal with Babel.

United. Similar sort of signings I reckon. Nothing world class cos you're in the same sorry, American–steered boat as us at the other end of the motorway.

City. I truly hope you aren't going to sign Gago for your own sakes. Seriously, he is a good player, but they would take your defensive midfielder tally up to about 4! More likely to see Robinho leave and that's that.


26 Jan 2010 14:34:09
Arsenal news
Claims yesterday on here that AFC would pursue KJ Huntelaar due to them 'making a hash of a deal for Chamakh'. Sorry to disappoint those (still) deluded scousers, but Chamakh won't be joining LFC either! Arsenal's interest in the player ended following a series of bids in August. It was made clear that he would not be sold in January with Bordeaux setting the pace in the French Ligue. The player also stated that he would NOT be moving in January and that he 'hoped' to have his future sorted out by March 2010 prior to the World Cup. Juventus is now his likely destination. Arsenal are NOT interested in Huntelaar either. Dzeko and Remy are possibilities, but if a deal cannot be done in the next few days, expect Wenger to drop interest altogether and stick with the team he is currently deploying. Bendtner due back in the next 2 weeks and Song returning following Cameroon's KO last night. Urgency is now far less than it was at the end of December.
REMEMBER – only 5 days left of the window! So far we have license to laugh incontrollably at the following 'done deals' reported not so long ago:
Ferdinand – retired, Rooney – Real Madrid, Sergio Aguero – Liverpool, David Silva – Liverpool, David Villa – Liverpool, DIC buyout, Benitez sacked, Dalglish taking over, Walcott – Liverpool, Ribery – Chelsea, Robinho – Barca, Bellamy – Arsenal, Vidic – Barca, Vela – Aston Villa, Beckford – Everton – hope all you bullsters and blaggers are ready for the comebacks! Post crap at your own peril!

Look I know this site is full of made up stuff, however the post referring to Blackwell being replaced by Coppell is absolute Bull.
KB is unhappy at lack of investment and continual selling of best players HOWEVER he has a good working relationship with Trevor and KMc.
He understands how things are financially, The Blades will not be going down the big name manager on mega bucks road ever again while KMc is in charge
Now onto real news.
Kallio of Fulham is wanted however Fulham need to find cover as they are also on the brink of selling Smalling leaving them without cover.
I hear they have lined up a swedish international to come in, if this happens Kallio will sign a permanent deal at Bramall Lane.
Kevin Kilbane is a no go unless Hull subsidise his wages.
Bad news is Naysmith is very unlikely to play for the club again due to injury, he will be sold in the summer (would have gone to Birmingham if he'd been fit this month)
Some interest in Billy Sharp however most likely outcome is still he will remain with Doncaster until summer and reasses his options then



26 Jan 2010 13:49:06
Liverpool FC
in this transfer window we will be getting a striker on loan and a left back and maybe a left mid if babel is sold.
huntelaar is the most likely the striker that is going to be loaned in with plessis going out on loan.
rafa really wants an english left back, and he is looking at bridge, koncheskey, warnock and baines. bridge wages are to much and city want to much for him, so very unlikely. baines is a everton player, so that's a no go. koncheskey and warnock is the most likely, koncheskey's contract is up at the end of the season and wouldn't cost that much and warnock would like a return to liverpool and with his mysterious injury is the most likely. if all these fail then taiwo is also being looked at.
and if babel is sold then rafa will look to sign turan or mata.

in the summer there will be a clear out of players. skrtel and agger are going and aurelio as is contract is up at the end of the season. benayoun, riera and kuyt might go.
i only know in the summer rafa really wants to english defenders to replace agger and skrtel and these will be cahill and maybe shawcross or another defender.

Liverpool are planning to annouce Huntelaar on loan today but spurs and everton are trying to put a spanner in the works. Spurs are wanting to buy Huntelaar but Ac milan only want him to go out on loan at the minute and spurs need to off load pevlychenko first to make room. Everton want him to replace Jo but want Ac Milan to put a buy summer offer on the table. Liverpool could not agree wages last week with huntelaar but Ac Milan wanted to take Babel on loan in return. But Rafa want Babel to stay to link up with Kuyt and Huntelaar . This was the piont of the loan in the first place. The deal was scrapped at this point and liverpool the looked at the Kebwyne jones option with babel going to sunderland on a loan swap . But yesterday there was a new twist as AC Milan said they where willing to take Plessis on loan to relieve the wages bill at liverpool and also paving why for Huntelaar to link up with Babel and Kuyt as planed thus making it more of a realism all 3 playing in the national team. Liverpool have made today the cut of point for the deal and unless Everton can come up with a better deal and spurs palming off pevlychenko then a news conference will be hold today before the wolves match. Warnock is thinking about his return and the cut of point will be thursday for this deal to Give Liverpool the ytime to find another defender if it fall throw

Arsenal to make a few changes to their squad in the summer in order to strenghten their challenge for the premier league next season


Chamakh – free
Kjaer – £9 million
Fellaini – £18 million + Denilson
Smithies – £1 million
Shawcross – £5 million
Smalling – £5 million


Eboue – £9 million
Diaby – £7 million
Denilson – swap
Traore – £5 million
Silvestre – free
Senderos – £6 million
Fabianski – £4 million


26 Jan 2010 09:42:44
It is easier to figure out who is OUT at Emirates than in, as Arsene is secretive about acquisitions but frank about egresses. OUT over the next year (this window or summer's):

Merida –– Atletico
Gallas –– PSG
Campbell –– Free
Silvestre –– Don't know, but he'll be lucky if a Vauxhall team wants him
Eboue –– Inter

Obviously they will have to do some replacing, especially in defense. Smalling is a possible bring–in, as are Dzeko and Eden Hazard. Once they recall Havard Nordtveit from Nurnberg out on loan now they have the perfect companion for Vermaelen, but they may let him "season" for awhile.


26 Jan 2010 10:44:21
Rangers latest,

Kyle lafferty off to dundee NOT dundee utd on loan. Boyd could be staying untill the summer and that's it with the glasgow's shame.

Celtic latest,

Sean st ledger deal still on the table, morton rasmussen near done deal and expect other signing before the transfer window close's.

26 Jan 2010 10:55:57
Rumours about my 2 more focused clubs; Liverpool and Man Utd. A lot of people will see these as biased views and unfair views for both sides with me being a Liverpudlian, but they are just things I'm hearing.
Liverpool are planning a loan swoop for Klass–Jan Huntelaar. It is likely N'Gog will go on loan should the deal go through, with both Newcastle and West Brom looking at the striker. The yanks have the club up for sale yet being as daft as they are they are valuing the club at £600m and no businessman in their right mind will buy the club for that, which has £400m debt.
Man Utd are far more interesting. Ferguson will leave in 2 years and depending on how he does in his new job Darren Ferguson will take over. The owners don't think there could be a better replacement for Fergie than his own flesh and blood. Ferguson is looking to leave his boy with an easy job and will sell the deadwood of the team. Van Der Sar will retire yet stay on as the goalkeeping coach. No replacement will be brought in with Foster his replacement, Kuszczak his second. A goalie will noly be brought in if Kuszczak hands in a transfer request. Vidic can't settle in England and will leave in the summer to Barcelona or Real Madrid for £30m. Porto defender Bruno Alves is his replacement and the centre back will sign for £15m. Nani and Anderson will both depart back to Portugal for £10m and £8m, although it is likely Nani will be offered in exchange for Di Maria as well as £20m going to Benfica. Berbatov won't be sold. Ferguson is just as stubborn as Rafa and won't sell the Bulgarian until he proves he can do well, similar to Rafa and Lucas.

Warnock to Liverpool? Warnock hasn't been dropped, he is injured. No way he will go anywhere.

Villa apparently now front runners for Kenwyne Jones after Liverpool dropped interest.

Arsenal ready to sign Gattuso, Wagner Love to west ham in the summer


26 Jan 2010 00:17:19
Some transfer rumours/gossip i have heard about Man United:

Manchester United have reportedly joined Tottenham in the race for Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko., and have expressed an interest in Athletico Madrid goalkeeper David de Gea.

Barcelona are preparing a bid for Wayne Rooney, according to reports, with Real Madrid also interested. Sir Alex is believed to be planning a clear–out, with Dimitar Berbatov, Nani, Anderson, Zoran Tosic and Nemanja Vidic all tipped to move on. Nani has been touted for a exit as part of an exchange deal for Benfica winger Angel di Maria, while Tosic could go to Cologne on loan.
Ben Foster is also available for £4m, according to reports, while Frederico Macheda could go to Real Zaragoza or Bologna on loan. Preston have signed striker Danny Welbeck until the end of the season.
Sir Alex Ferguson is looking for goalkeeping cover for Edwin van der Sar. Manuel Neuer of Schalke is the latest name to be linked with the club. Sebastian Frey and Hugo Lloris are also rumoured to be targets.

United are considering an £18m move for Porto defender Rolando, while the club could vie with City for the signing of Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik. Ferguson could also swoop for Rangers defender Danny Wilson, Serbian defender Uros Cosic or Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini. Swedish teenager Rasmus Lindgran and Norwegian defender Even Hovland will join the club on trial.

Sky as just report that liverpool have pulled out of the kenwyne jones deal . this means that the Huntelaar deal as been done and earlier to day a report said Huntelaar was on a plane to Birmingham and this could mean that Huntelaar will be annouced as a liverpool player at wolves tomorrow as another source said he was at melwood last friday undergoing a medical. Stephen Warnock will sign on thursday. Villa says hes got a mysterious shin injury lol but really he is considering his return to liverpool. Plus Villa don't want him to play in the crutch game against arsenal with him thinking of returning back. Villa are thinking of a price as we sleep


26 Jan 2010 01:09:13
Strong rumours at boro that Strachan will only be allowed some loan signings as he has been given the next 8 matches to turn results round or he will be sacked.
Apparently clause in contract allowing it to be terminted without compensation depending on league position.
This is not a rumour this is from John Robertsons family member, Robertson is not happy at all with the level of player they are having to go after and the budget they are working on, and he is ready to walk anyway but is staying loyal to strachan


26 Jan 2010 01:41:53

26 Jan 2010 02:37:44
Some Rumours that iv heard.
This Window– Huntelaar is linked with 4 different teams.Iv heard Everton and Spurs are favourites but spurs have to sell Pavlyuchenko and possibly Keane as well.Birmingham Aston Villa and West Ham are said to be in for Pavlyuchenko including his former club.He isn't in a hurry to leave as he has a good contract and Russia isn't going to the world cup.Liverpool won't fork out the wages Huntelaar wants but Rafa will go back to his former club and try and bring in huge Nikola Zigic.The only snag is Valencia want to keep him as there back up to guanantee champions league qualification and to help the fiancial situation but they again so could a transfer fee.Expect this to develop over the week.This can only happen if Rafa can sell babel but he will refuse to drop his price cause he paid so much.Arsenal won't sign any1 unless bentdner fails to come through the Villa game.Man City i think will sign 1/2 in this monday but iv not heard anything only summer rumours about them.

Summer Window–Some players will move that you wudn expect because they have had a good world cup.Thou it will be a huge window it usually is after a world cup.
Arsenal will lose Senderos Campbell and Silvestre leaving them with Gallas, Vermaelen and Djourou.Because of Djourou's injury they will bring in Chris Smalling and if Juve don't take the option to buy Martin Caceres AW will make a bid.This will give him 5 CB's.With Gallas giving 1 more season this will give the young 1s time to develop.Sergio Canales' dad was very impressed with Arsenal and AW plans thou Canales himself isn't sure if a move away from spain is right at the minute but will meet Arsenal representatives to discuss it.They will also try and tie up Chamakh in the next week.A GK is on the list but iv heard nothing so im not going to make up lies.Those will be there signings.Iv seen links in paper with them with Eden Hazard aswel.The main objective is to keep Fabregas thou im not sure they can.
Man Utd are broke thou the Glazers arent stupid.Fergie will stay atleast a year and has some big targets.Wesley Sneijder and David Silva are his top targets so expect 1 to come in.Owen will go along with Nani.Rooney will stay but Vidic is a doubt.With Van Der Sar to retire Manuel Neuer will be brought and Gary Cahill is a name iv heard them linked with.Edin Dzeko is Uniteds number 1 forward to partner Rooney.They could also try and bring in Gourcuff to stregthen the CM and will be in a 3 team race for Angel di Maria.
Man City are hard to speculate on cause u hear so much and its hard to know wat is genuine.Frank Ribery is linked thou i think he will be a Real Madrid next year.Another rumour is that Sergio Aguero will go to City and not Chelsea along with Inter Milans Maicon.With Robinho leaving in the summer to maybe Barca which will leave David Villa possibly moving to England but not to City.Yaya Toure is also looking like he could be part of the Robinho deal.They will be another team in for Di Maria.They could also attempt to buy Stven Gerrard if Liverpool fail to qualify for the champions league.
Chelsea will make a move for Villa if they don't get Aguero and if Aneklas contract talks don't pick up again.Chelsea will be the Final team looking Di Maria and are the Favourites to stop Ribery moving to Madrid.
Liverpool will try and make moves in the summer for Valencia duo David Villa and Mata.Bruno Alves is being linked with them and they are desperate to keep Gerrard Torres and Reina at the club thou 2 of Babel/Riera and Benayoun could leave to help fund these.
Sorry this post is so long but last week was sooo busy in the office these Rumours all came in so i got them all in now.
The London Agent ;)


26 Jan 2010 03:04:38
To the guy who said Joe Lewis will be signing for Blackpool with Matt Gilks going the other wayit's not going to happen, if any keeper is leaving Blackpool it's Rachubka. The only reason Rachubka is playing right now is to offload him in the window.


26 Jan 2010 03:22:41
I seriously love the predictions of the exact fees for 20 transfers that 'will happen' in the summer.

The rumours that are possibly believable:

Mourinho to City
Huntelaar to the Prem
Warnock to Liverpool
Moses to Arsenal
Babbel in a swap deal

Some of the 'rumours' are terrible.

Bent to Man City for 20 million?
And: this whole post, what an idiot:
Celtic 2 buy andy driver and zenden. Also Frazier Campbell and roman bednar on loan. Adam Johnson, joe ledley and Jose goncalves pre contracts in the summer.


26 Jan 2010 05:49:21
Heard from a reliable source with a Glasgow tabloid , Robbie fowler to rangers on loan till end of season. Also trying to sign Snodgrass for 1million, but only if sale of Lafferty to a championship team goes through.
At the cemetry end of the city, still possible sale of Mcgeadie and Brown as board don't want to lose out on possible big buck, s. also Mcmanus, mcdonald, and Fox away before end of Jan window Coming in are the big Dane Rasputin' a young swedish l/s defender, and a possible young South African 17 yr old and that will be business closed
Looks like treble to the west end " we are the people "


26 Jan 2010 07:43:02

liverpool will NOT sign david villa in the summer
liverpool will NOT sign sergio aguero in the summer
FACT 1. Marouane Chamakh is due in liverpool to sign a pre contract agreement this week !
fACT 2. Milan Jovanovic is also due in liverpool to sign a pre contract agreement this week !
FACT 3. juve have contacted benitez's agent to enquire if rafa gets replaced in summer that they can be given first option on his signature and are even planning to let him rejuvenate (no pun intended) the structure of the club in order to fend off any garunteed approach from real madrid .

I don't cut alex gerraerds toe nails, i don't live in an airport, and i don, t walk rafa, s goatie FACT oh and i don, t have either of the afore mentioned players in my fifa/pes team. The FACTS i have stated are just that! fACTS
couple more things ! Rooney would have to be forced out of the theatre of no atmosphere and if that happened the whole infastructure would disappear at man ure! Fergie and his entire backroom staff would walk away if the glaziers allowed this to happen (they may be money grabbaing t"ts but you can't bleed a club dry without its prize assets in place)
and finaly klas jan wotsisface is being lined up by arsenal because they royaly balls, d up in the persuit of chamakh and he will use the rest of this season to see if the player has the right attitude for his squad before a posible transfer in the summer .
J4 96ynwa !

Now please carry on posting your fifa / pes rumours there so. Funny !!!

Any more on the Huntelaar to Liverpool situation??


25 Jan 2010 22:34:25
In reference to you quote about Mourinho joining City in the summer. Same rumours are coming out of tennis club in Cheshire mention no names. Cooke is is out to make a name for himself full stop the man's a joke and an embarrassment to City.

My brother lives out in New York. He was present at the Mad Hatter saloon on Thursday evening when Gary Cook CEO of Manchester City gave his we will rule the world speech.My brother managed to get a few words with Gary after his talk.On to the rumour, This is right from the horses mouth so to speak. The reason why we have not given mancicni any substantial amounts of money to spend in this window, is because Mr murinho is join in the summer as manager, no suprise in that. The shock was that Mancini was to stay on as his assistant and together they would make Man City not only the richest club in the world but also the best.Hope this is not another lie Gary.


25 Jan 2010 22:45:53

25 Jan 2010 23:16:19
I will probably be sacked for this post, but feel that I have to so that the truth can be told:

I used to work at Cardiff City FC, and recently we have had many 'supposed' suitors willing to invest in us.

The fact is that not ONE penny has been invested, and it is all a charade to keep Peter Ridsdale at the club. Dato Tan Ghee and Ben Steele have only been invited to the club, in order for Pete to look good.

The club lost £4m in the last financial year and has not kept up to date on either HMRC or Youth PAYE contracts. The only way Cardiff will stay afloat is by selling off its top players by 1st February. Even then, it will be tight until the end of the season.

Cardiff's debts are £16m – this does not include the amount owed to Langston.

Ridsdale has lied so many times to staff and fans that he needs to go. Even a visiting chairman recently said that he was 'a complete waste of sperm'.


25 Jan 2010 23:17:34
I was at Ibrox on sat and the rumour was Andy Driver to Stoke for £2mill with Fuller returning on loan to hearts for the rest of the season with stoke paying his wage, Hope it does happen as we do just fine without driver anyway
