Football Rumours Archive November 29 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

I work as a secerity at the liberty stadium when i sudenly saw jay jay okcoha and edga davids as a replacement for ferrie bodde as he is out for the rest of the season. Belive me or not but this is FACT! This should be announnced in the coming weeks which they should be here by the barnsley game!!. . Exciting times for the jacks!

Mr davies. peace out!
  United not to sign tevez with real Madrid getting him instead. we will go after defoe, hunteleer or even possibly henry. alex wants a more hungry goal scorer somone that he can bring on when he need a goal. he'll let hargreaves and nani leave this year for a total of 30 million and he'll buy veloso and another left mid. there is also talk of signing aguaro for 35 million but we'll just have to wait and see.

watch the championship next year to be full of uniteds new bunch of youth!!

  To the person who pretended to be paul mcaguinness, well done on finding his name of football manager and pretending to be him. also i would just like to thank the person who described phillip degan as "a paperweight" in a deal for making me laugh alot. the word you were looking for was makeweight.

As for transfer rumours, villa will sign a striker in jan if the deal is right. MON won't just sign anyone. chances are doyle(despite signing a new deal recently, money talks). my hope would be for podolski as it would suit both parties perfectly but cant see it happening.

Also expect barry to sign a new deal after xmas especially if villa are still in top 4.

  Newcastle news:

  I've said it before – Nigel Clough will be the next Forest manager.It is true in the past he has stated he does not want to step up due to family commitments. However, his kids are at school and he has more time now.

He has told Neil Webb he is ready. Neil will be his assistant.
  West Ham:
no need to sell, no panic. the Blades fans that think they are in for a stack load of cash think again. even if you are totally succesful the max award will be £12M as per the Blades books showing this as a maximum loss. also getting taken to court by Barnsley will reduce the blades bank balance even more (and rightly so)
The estimation is that West ham will only have to cover the one year which will work out around £5–6M. so not a bad result for the hammers, flog or ship off some of the deadwood we have and we have a result.
players wise
S.Appiah to sign an 18 month contract
  Rotherham United are going to extend their squad in January by signing Ebbsfleet United midfielder Stacy Long. Mark Robins has been closely following the 23 year old who has scored 20 goals since joining the conference side in 2006. Robins was also impressed with Long's 40 appearances for the England youth side.
  Chesterfield are in for Kidderminster pair Stefan Moore and Justin Richards in a 300K swoop. I am also led to believe Doncaster are in for South African ace Richard Henyekane of Golden Arrows. .
  Barnsley will sign Chris Zebroski from Wycombe Wanderers in hope to bolster their strike force in Iain Hume's absense along with Jamie Curreton. This means that some of Barnsley's other strikers are on loan and possibly transfer lists for an exit out of Oakwell.
  West ham and sheffield united to settle out of court once both partys lawyers thrash out an ammicable deal. sheffield want the 11.1m shortfall in gates and lost moneys for bieng elliminated from the premiership 32m. lost moneys through merchandise cannot be included. TOTAL CLAIM. 43.1m. . . both partys to take into account parachute payment of 24m. . . TOTAL PAYABLE 19.9m. West ham will settle at 13.9m, stating original fine and administration charges to come off final settle ment, west ham to pay 4.25m in both paytys legal costs to be paid upfront. the remainder of moneys owed to be paid over a 4 year period. My brother is a clerk at a certain legal co and has access to the case. . hope this puts a few rumours to rest. not great for sheffield united, not great for west ham, not bad for both teams but DEVASTATING FOR FOOTBALL IN GENERAL. Expect this to open up a new SUING mentality, (that foul on ronaldo by john terry in october stopped man u from winning the league so we want,etc etc etc) you get the gist of it. .
  Man utd news.

sir alex wants 2 add quality and compition for places but won't be buyin in jan just tying up a couple of deals. firstly Carlos Tevez will sign a perminant deal b4 the june deadline(united have first refusal). sir alex will also add compition by signing Bastian Schweinsteiger and Fred on bosnan free deals they'll sign in jan and move in the summer. then sir alex will look 2 spend his money signin Miguel Veloso and Alexis Sanchez aswell as Kyriakos Papadopoulos.

wait and see.
  Heart of Midlothian players are to hold crisis talks after the club again failed to pay the players their weekly wage on Friday. This is the second time the players salaries have not been paid this season, and a delegation believed to be led by Michael Stewart and Christophe Berra have approached manager Csaba Lazlo for talks in the morning before their match against Rangers.

Mood in the Hearts camp is already at breaking point despite their terrific run of 4 wins on the bounce, and Larrea Kingston has been disciplined by the club and it's likely he will not turn out for the Jambos again.

Berra, Andy Driver and Bruno Aguir are also being lined up for moves to Old Firm clubs in the January window for bargain prices as Hearts embark on a huge cost cutting exercise.
  To all those who feel liverpool will have a clear in jan, u are wrong. yes rafa there is some dead wood floatig at anfield, however, rafas budgets are very tight at the moment. in the summer things may be very different with both fullback positions being filled by bale and johnson, also the signing of a right winger names touted as joaquin, who rafa was very close to signing pre season just gone, however it may take a big money move now that hes having a great season at valencia. the biggest signing of all shall be sergio aguerro. rafa turned down this chance once before but now thinks the player has what it takes to make it in the premiership and become a world star. the new owners will also sanction this as they will try all costs to bring liverpool back to the top of world football as a brand, and aguerro will looks likely to be the next world star. Also watch out for a world record bid for messi, or if he is still at milan kaka. i know it sound lala but watch this space. this season the crucial point will be jan, with torres suffering with his hamstring we will need to find some1 to fill the void of goals when hes not playing, either way win the title or not chelsea will be run to the wire. and the summmer will be crazy in a good way at anfield.

  The press are making two plus two equal seven. West Ham have been ring fenced and are secure financially. Any compensation due to Sheffield United would be paid in installments over a number of years. The figures quoted so far are so far off beam that the Sheffield United board should be embarrassed. They are very worried that they will be forced to open their books to West Hams lawyers and will seek an out of court settlement. However West Ham are still confident that the whole thing can be quashed and are willing to take the matter to the European courts. They will ask the European courts to declare the arbitration process illegal as it has no set appeal process. This whole thing is likely to take another year or two to settle at least.
  –––Liverpool will sign Glen Johnson in January for £8million––– This is a definite, but I cant say how I know.
  Greetings – Not so much a rumour more an observation. This is a rumour site if I am not mistaken so why oh why do people post who THEY think their teams should buy?? I am not moaning or anything its just something I have noticed. Come to think of it have any of the rumours that have been posted on here ever actually come to fruition? but since we are posting who we want our teams to buy here goes – as an Everton fan we are in desprate need of a quality right back and a replacement for Lee carsley so Glen Johnson and Scott Parker would be within our budget and we are a more established club so why not? this is not a rumour just my opion of who could strengthen our team.
  The rumour saying sheffield united are willing to accept a load of wetspams reserves as payment are as ridicolous as they are wrong, the blades are fully confident of recovering AT LEAST 30m, wetspams owner is unable to pay this as he has lost 230m in his icelandic bank, expect fire sales of any valuable players in Jan and the club to be sold for a nominal amountsoon after
  Arsenal Rumours:

AW will invest wisely in Jan. Gallas will not be going in Jan, however expect a 4/5 mil offer from Marseille and PSG come the summer which will see the introduction of Fazio from Sevilla (signed a new ciontract so that sevilla get a good price for him). Vieira and Henry rumours are ludacris and WILL NOT happen, to the person who said Gazidis is brokering a deal for Henry, he doesn't start till Jan so keep dreaming. Bendtner will move to Russia in Jan for 5mil and this will see a loan move for Podolski and a permanet move come the Summer, if this doesn't materialise expect a bid for Falcao from riverplate. Big clubs in Spain and Italy are looking to loan Vela and Eduardo's recovery will be studied closely. Matuidi won't sign however expect bids for Defour and demy de zeuww, song will be loaned out as will wilshere(WBA/Stoke) A goalie will be added to the ranks in Summer in the form of Hilderbrand. Keep an eye out for theses activities, trust me.
  To the person who said Lukas Podolski will be at Everton for £6mil in Jan, Never fella. I am a blue and believe me will not sign him.
More realistic players would be loan deals
  Brian Murphy of Bohemians Football Clubb Ireland will be moveing to Hibernian FC In January for £150,000 + sell on clause. This is FACT. I do not support either team, merely passing on information as i have done in the past, P Mccourt to celtic etc.
  Greatings from the Greate White North (Canada). Normally we have little to offer the football rumour community, nevertheless, on the same radio program in which the scourge of scousers everywhere, George Gillet, spilled the beans regarding LFC, it was reported that Rafa has his scouts trailing Canadian wonderkid (err., average) midfielder Matthew Christian from the Toronto FC reserves. .the report suggested LFC were looking at offering him a trial in the new year. .

  Jan signins
man city– will sign samba,warnock frm blackburn with ben heim , nedum ohunuha(spellin') goin the ova way whether it will b a swap or fees this will happen.
man utd– will sign a cm 1 of either marcos senna(villareal) ,palacios (wigan) or miguel veloso(sporting lisbon) which means hargreaves will leave in the summer when hes returned frm injury as sir alex is feed up with his injury problems and inconsistant form when he is fit.
arsenal– gallas will be loaned 2 psg until the summer when he will b then sold 2 ac milan he will be replaced with dan van buyten frm munich
my name is Paul McGuinness, and im the Manchester united under18's football coach, i understand that there are a few rumors floating about, I'm writing to inform everyone that all these big money signings will not happen in January, However our main priority in January is to tie up a permanent deal for Carlos Tevez, 24, also the "papertalk" about him feeling unneeded and misunderstood is purely "papertalk" he is very happy here and wishes to spend the next 4–5 years with us.
there are a few players we are trying to recruit but no big names, we are interested in signing Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic.

and i also have some good news related to Dimitar Berbatov, he has returned to full training and will feature against manchester city in the forthcoming match.

Many Thanks.

Paul McGuinness

  Hi, am a huge Hibs fan and also know Steven Fletchers sister very well. Fletcher won't be moving untill autum next season as he wants to stay at hibs this season.
also expect manucho for united to go out on loan to the likes of stoke,WBA, or wolves to boost attack for last half of season.
expect to see kightly out to boro
  Just a quick thing about Sheffield Wednesday. There targets in the upcoming transfer window are Reuben Reid – Rotherham; Jamie Ward – Chesterfield; John Sutton – St Mirren, Julian Bennett – Nott'm For; Bradley Hudson–Odoi – Hereford
  Some transfer rumours:
Rafinha to Liverpool? Could possibly see this happening, as Rafa looks to end the full–back crisis. Phillip Degen hasnt had much of a chance, but he will still be the paperweight in this deal, plus a tidy packet of 3mil to our friends in Germany. Personally, I miss Stevey Finnan. Fabiano to Man City? I don't think so, with Hughesy offering Daniel Sturridge a new contract, and with the inexpicable return of Benjani Mwaruwari. More likely to see Abu Dhabi City move for defensive options, namely a new keeper. Adriano to Chelsea? A possibility, with Didier Drogba's obvious yearning to be reunited with his beloved Mourinho. So a trade on the cards; I was just surprised when I saw how much more Drogba is worth than Adriano, considering Addy is younger and Brazillian.
Appiah to Arsenal? Is this ever going to happen or what? Probably not, as Big Stepho is bound to get tired of Wenger's hesitancy and move to West Ham, but can they handle his wages?
Downing to Tottenham? With Big Harry looking to spend to succeed, I'm sure Stew will be on his hit–list. However will the rumoured 11–12mil be enough to tempt a confident Mr. Southgate? No, it wont.
Watson to Birmingham? Another saga that seems to have been drawn out far longer than it should have. Is Ginger Watson going to remain under the fiery Warnock of isnt he? Only January will tell. Alternatively, I predict a bid from Flavio Briatorie's Queens Park Rangers for the playmaker.
Slusarski to Sheff Wed? This surely must happen in January, what with the predicted departure of Deon Burton to Charlton (dont ask me why). I think its about time to. Bartosz Slusarski is a good striker, and was never given a chance by Lucifer Mowbray.

  Liverpool will place the following bids in january. They will hijack Portsmouth first team and sign glen johnson(7m)and jermaine defoe(11m). The will be signing tottenham defender gareth bale(10m). The only other signing will be from Borussia Dortmund and he will be right winger 'kuba'(7m).They will be selling jermaine pennant,(5m) andrea dossena(7m) yossi benayoun (7m) phillipp degen(6m) fabio aurelio(5m). The yanks will throw in 5 million so they do not create a worse name than what they already hav for themselves.
  So Sheffield United will accept two of West Hams cast offs, (Bowyer? Do me a favour), on loan as settlement. Well the loans window has closed and nothing happened. Why the hell should we want to let West Ham 'save face' anyway? So the Premier League can brush their incompetance and mismanagement under the carpet one more time?

In a letter to all Premier League Clubs, the PL stated that if West Ham were found to be break the rules a second time (which the tribunal found they were) that further sanctions, i.e. a points deduction, would be applied. Does anyone think for a minute that it will?

What a buggers muddle. Scudamore and Richards should resign.
