Rangers FC News

Expect a consortium involving Graeme Souness to takeover in December, end of financial year for the club. Huge investment going to made in developing youth system, current status of SPL and failure to gain access to EPL has altered business plan.

WHU interest in MacGregor is a smokescreen, it is actually Bougherra who is being targeted with the hammers touting Faubert as part of the deal.

Mick McCathy will be sacked if wolves fail to beat Birmingham – He will be replaced by the managment team of Gerard Houilier (Director of football) and Darren Ferguson (1st Team Manager)


Breaking news from reliable source tells me that Stevie G nearly came to blows with Sammy Lee after the Debrecen game – all about tactics and his own frustrations about team set up – apparently he demanded meeting with Rafa which has been turned down....this may be the issue referred to for Gerrard not playing on Sunday...the start of the final chapter of a turbulent time methinks...


Heard the same story about the lfc bust up – all kicking off big style apparently...some players not happy about Carra saying that going out of CL is not the end of the world – seemed stupid thing to say. I've heard that Gerrard and one of the coaching staff came to blows too.
Rafa must go – now


Celtic and hearts are looking at David Clarkson on loan from Bristol City, also Mc Gregor and Bougherra are being monitered by various Premiership clubs although the bank would only know John Tuffey or Mark Reynolds as replacements


Can anyone shine some light on the crap at everton, investment? transfer @ or anything positive ?


To all rangers fans saying boyd will be coming to brum.mcleish deny's any interest in any rangers players so sorry but stuck with off to walsall and blues will sign janko


Hi, im a close friend of one of Steven Fletchers immediate family members, Look at fletcher making a move closer up north at the end of the season, likley sunderland or even a shock move to newcastle if finances are sorted.
if to newcastle look at a player such as smith going in the other direction
and if sunderland look for both healy being sold for as little as 300k to a shock move back to leeds
and campbell going out on loan to prove himself as a premier striker.
Other news united to sign no keepers but look for heaton and zeiler fighting for a number 2 spot with foster becoming No1, (finally) with TC going over to france.
also look out for petrucci coming into the mix next season.
summer buys for united will probably silva with an eye to move for villa at the end of the season ,
BG x


Ryan giggs has told fergie that he wants to leave at the end of this season to finsih his carreer at his hometown cardiff for one season as he thinks the club has lost faith in him as fergie wants silva.

also ruad van nistelroy to liverpool in january as numerous clubs are after torres including manchester city who are willing to pay up to £110 million for him


An emerging story from Merseyside is that Rafa is gradually accepting that he has lost the faith of both players and fans and is coming to understand that his time is nearing an end. He is in no way waiting to be sacked just so that he can claim the £20 million and knows that the club deserve better than such a mercenary attitude – my source has suggested that he may walk as early as next week, largely depending on the Everton result (and performance). Ironically, King Kenny will then take over for an interim period, having last managed the club for an Everton cup tie at the end of his own reign. Long term, there are the obvious candidates such as o'Neil, Mourinho, Hiddink but much depends on the Americans following Rafa's lead and selling up to release funds. There is a growing belief thta Torres may indeed be sold – but not before the summer – to give the new manager cash to start again and build his own team. Given all of his recent injuries, £100 million for him would be a great deal for Liverpool...


Rumours passed down from a golfing buddy of Gary Mcallister...Kenny preparing to be installed as interim manager at Anfield by next week...partly due to the demands made by some players who have lost all faith in Rafa's tactic and selection. Huge bust up on the journey home from Hungary by all accounts – which will result in one surprise admission from the team to play Everton... you'll put it all together on Sunday lunchtime...


It is looking likely that Royston Drenthe will be allowed to leave Real Madrid in January if a suitable fee is agreed. With his ability to play anywhere on the left hand side there will be interest from a number of clubs. If Ryan Babel and/or Dossena were to leave Liverpool in January, I would expect interest from Merseyside. It looks perfectly feasible that Tottenham and Manchester City may also consider the player. Sharkey


I understand that agreement is very close to being reached regarding the transfer of Sergio Aguero to Chelsea. The fee has been agreed between the clubs and all that stands in the way of a full agreement is a number of personal matters. Whether or not Aguero is loaned back to Atletico or not has no doubt been agreed, but has not been shared with me. Sharkey


On great authority Kettering town will be signing andy bishops from basingstoke come on you ketters!!!!!!!!!


Burnley are set to sign Cork's Eire U21 defender Kevin Long also looking at a deal for Lincoln's goalkeeper Rob Burch and completing a full deal for David Nugent. Forget Martin Paterson joining anyone he is not out of form, he has been out injured.


Derby County are set to raid the non leagues again to overcome their financial woes. They hope Robyn Bankes will help them in their fight to avoid relegation. The striker has scored 12 goals in 7 games.


Rafa's main target for January is a loan deal for Van Nistleroy. This is not dependant on any sales. Dossena, Veronin and possibly Babel will be out if suitable offers are received. If enough money is raised, Mata will be the target. Rafa is planning to use the Europa league to get Aquilani fit. He will displace Lucas from the first choice starting line–up until the end of the yaer but in the summer Lucas will replace the departing Mascherano. In the summer, Kjaer and Turan will be the main targets.


choice for wenger between zapata of udinese and subotic of dortmund. either would cost 10–15m. with senderos, gallas and silvestre to depart by the end of the season, and with djourou being so injury prone, wenger will look to sign another CB, in the form of either micah richards or mahmadou sakho.
rvp's injury has confirmed what we all thought. he is the only true striker good enough at arsenal. with bendtner injured and eduardo yet to discover his pre–injury form, wenger may well move for a striker. expect chamakh to arrive in the summer, but do not be surprised if a short term loan for another striker materialised in january.
almunia will depart in the summer and wenger has seen that fabianski is crap. thus a top drawer goal keeper will arrive in the summer. candidates include Green, Neuer, Doni and Boruc.
DCM cover for song will be required given he will be at ACN, and a long term competition is also required. expect a loan move for a DCM, and Toulalan or Witsel in the summer.
Rosicky will leave, and Hazard will be brought in.


Celtic –
Asian young player of the year Ki Sung Yong to join for £2M – subject to work permit.

Honduran defender Osman Chavez from Platense expected to join on loan – he is currently training at Lennoxtown.

Ilan Araujo Dall'Igna from St Etienne is out of contract and may be offered something by Celtic.


Real Liverpool News:
With the surprise exit from the Champions League the yanks have £2m to give Rafa for January and hallelujah they have to sell as they are losing far too much money. Who'll buy them out I don't know but I do know that 4 or 5 billionaires are looking into it, but want to buy into a club cleared of debt. This won't be done until the summer at the earliest, so don't expect any huge takeovers just yet.
January will be an interesting time at Anfield, with Rafa trying for a trophy this season and the Europa League looks most likely. Goran Pandev will join for £3m as I have constantly stated since last month and seems many are cottoning on. He is cup–tied for the Europa League though so N'Gog will stay on as the Europa League back–up. Rafael Van Der Vaart WILL join on loan in January, this is a fact but the other player is still unsure yet, this being Ruud Van Nistelrooy. 2 things worry him. 1. His name will be mud amongst the real Man Utd fans and after he's seen the treatment Owen's getting, it's certainly a road he doesn't want to go down. 2. He isn't guarenteed a 1st team spot and he wants to win the World Cup but is no longer guarenteed a place. This will conclude January signings, although 2 players are out then, Babel off to Atletico Madrid for £8m (their in talks) and £3m for Voronin whose off to Germany (Frankfurt are trying to find the funds, Hertha looks most likely). The final transfer will be Dossena, who'll join Sampdoria as he wants his Italy place back, a nice £5m fee is being talked over.
The summer will be a busy time. Hopefully Rafa will have a nice £30m budget to play with, depending on performances in competitions. His no. 1 target is Sergio Aguero, the boyhood red and huge fan of Torres and Gerrard and good friends with Mascherano, who's given him a good review of LFC. He will join in the summer SHOULD HE NOT JOIN CHELSEA IN JANUARY. This is crucial and he has already said he'd be tempted by the offer. Should he not he'll join for the full £30m + Riera, if he chooses Chelsea in January (quite likely) then expect Riera to join Valencia in a straight swap for Mata or a swap + £8m for David Silva, whom Liverpool have first option on (secured this summer, hence why Rafa's £6m budget dropped to £2m and Kyrgiakos joined). So:
Rafa believes (as do I) that Reina is the best 'keeper in the world and will stay for another few years before finishing his career in Spain with Atletico. Rafa is unsure on Cavalieri and will be sold in the summer for £4m, with Asier Riesgo of Real Sociedad joining on a bosman in the summer, and the pre–contract done in January.
With poor defending this season and the worst coming from Martin Skrtel, he's the one leaving in the summer. The final part exchange with a straight swap for Kjaer. He sees Agger and Kjaer the future defensive partnership and Carra and Sotiris will drop and benchwarmers. Glen Johnson is one of the best right–backs in the world, while Degen has shown he is a good attacking right back and will stay. With Dossena leaving, Insua and Aurelio are the left backs with Insua being first choice except for the massive games, where Rafa believes his inexperience can prove costly.
Rafa will be changing to a 4–4–2, finally seeing the light. With Masch leaving for Barca in the summer for £40m (yes it's still happening) Aquilani and Gerrard will make up the CM. Lucas and VDV (who might join on a permanent deal in the summer for £6m) will be the back–ups, but Aqui and VDV will be rotated with. Silva looks likely to join and will be LM, Kuyt RM and Benayoun able to play both sides. He will be an impact sub and start around half the matches in a position across the midfield. Another winger will join for cheap, around £4m. Rafa wants Xabi Prieto from Sociedad but they want £7m for him, so no clues yet to who it could be.
Finally strikers. Torres and Pandev will be the strikers, with Pandev playing just off Nando. N'Gog will be a back up while Van Nistelrooy, should he join will be the man on the bench. I personally can't see him joining so Mario Mandzukic will join for £6m.

The Liver Bird


Burnley will sign Adam Lallana from Southampton for 2.25m in January on a 5 year contract.


I am from portugal and i just wanted to say what portuguese players would be good for the premier league. There is a 23 year old attacking midfielder called ruben micael who plays for nacional da madeira has been rumored with a move to blackburn and he would be good for them or wigan.


Just a bit of Manchester Utd transfer news for you folks from Les Fry here. It seems that David Villa will be joining for £55M in January along with Esteban Cambiasso for £7.5M but the latter will move in the summer. The move for the Argentinian is explained by my contact as a shrewd agreement between Mourinho and Ferguson as Jose looks set to take over for next season at Old Trafford and this is purely a Gentleman's agreement between the two as Fergie will retire at the end of the season.

After the investment by 'TG' today at Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff are going to be very busy in the January transfer market.

TG wants Cardiff City promoted this season, and has agreed to part–fund transfers for the following players, in order that promotion be achieved...

IN: Andrew Driver, Lee Wallace (both Hearts)
Brad Guzan (Aston Villa, LOAN)
Fran Merida (Arsenal, LOAN)
Danny Rose (Tottenham, LOAN)
Lee Naylor (Celtic, £1m)
Danny Fox (Celtic, £2.5m)
Ritchie De Laet (Manchester United, LOAN)
Song Chong–Gug (Suwon, £1.2m)

TG also wants more emphasis on Youth Development, after Cardiff produced Joe Ledley, Aaron Ramsey and Adam Matthews.

Going out in January:

Ross McCormack (Motherwell)
Joe Ledley (Everton)
Peter Whittingham (Stoke)
Michael Chopra (Fulham)
Jay Bothroyd (Stoke)
Kevin McNaughton (Hibernian)
Mark Hudson (Crystal Palace – LOAN)
Mark Kennedy (Leeds)
Tony Capaldi (Bristol Rovers – LOAN)


Just a few rumours I heard yesterday:


Van Nistlerooj 2.5m
Van der vaart 4m
Bale 3m
Mata 5m plus riera

Dossena 5m
Babel 7m
Vorinon 2.5m
Riera px with mata

May happen may not but makes more sense beacsue we need a striker, a attacking mid who can play on the flanks, a winger and a left back to cover insua but we may need to buy bale as arry redcrap will not loan us a player a he feels he will still be in contention for cl place. With cash being scarce at anfield the transfers won't really cost anything. This summer is going to be THE one at anfield...alot will happen behind scenes...the yanks have to play there cards now because rafa will not put up with having no funds again...

Intresting times ahead...ynwa

Hi remember me ? im the one who for months now have been saying that intermarket won't be takeing over WHU, well I have more bad news for the not so happy hammers , Upson & Green will both be sold in Jan , Upson going City & Green going Sunderland.
and if they are relegated that will spell the end for whu as we know it, they will be hit by admin


Van the Man wants to go to the World Cup and because he is not playing at Real Madrid he will leave and he will go to Liverpool. Heard this from a close friend of Ruud. Another rumour i heard: Luiz Suarez, the sensation from Ajax ( 17 goals in 14 championship games ) will go to Arsenal for a fee of around £ 28mil


All I have to say is that Maynor Figueroa and Adam Johnson have already been seen on Wearside by a few of my extremely reliable contacts so it is a dead certainty for them both to sign for Sunderland. Expect fees of £8M for Johnson and £9.7M for Figueroa. Les Fry (Semi–professional rumourage)


I have found out through a friend of mine who works at Oakwell that Robbins as tabled a £2 million bid for the 2 Stoke defenders on lone at Barnsley when the transfer window opens. Also Barnsley will sell Bobby Hassle to Sheffield United for £750, 000.
