The tabloids in Scotland have refused to print the TRUTH. Artur Boruc is not injured, he is fit and well, however following the bust up at the Motherwell game – Boruc has decided to leave the club.

Mowbray has made the calamity keeper available on a free transfer.

Boruc has caused most of the in–fighting along with McGeady and Mowbray thinks Zaluska and McCourt can easily fill in the void left by both. McGeady to Birmingham in £5m deal on 1/01/10.

Perhaps when the trouble–some two–some go, McDonald will start scoring again?



Chris commons signing for notts county


Hibernian FC

Hibs manager John Hughes has been told by chairman Rod Petrie that there is no money to spend on players in January unless he sells first & my Easter Road mole has imformed me that Hughes has been told to sell recent signings Anthony Stokes & Liam Miller, this has alerted new Middlesbrough manager Gordon Strachen who is deaperate to take both back down south, expect a swap deal for one player and cash for the other my source also said he would have taken defender Sol Bamba aswell had he not been going to the african nations cup. THE BIG MAN...


Hans Backes first Notts signing will be Striker Timo Furuholm from Inter Turku in Finland who is regarded has one of finlands hottest propertys

he will join in Jan from 200, 000(going upto 400, 000 depending on goals scored) and he has the option to move to a premiership club if they come in for him.


Hearts fc/Middlesbrough

Gordon Strachan has targeted Hearts defender Jose Goncalves. Informal discussions took place last week between the player's agent and representatives of Boro. Goncalves who was close to being named in the Portuguese national team will be available for a nominal fee in January. Strachan has kept a close eye on the defender since leaving Celtic; Strachan had been keen to sign the player before he joined Hearts but was put off by the asking price and wages which Hearts at that time were able to offer. However Goncalves superb performances and availability has alerted Boro and should ensure Strachan eventually gets his man.


Robbie Fowler has been seen in England near Notts.County's ground,


Not sure what to make of this but i've heard on the grapevine that the principle owner of the New York Mets baseball team is in England this week to look at a football clubs facilities etc, its been known for a while that he wants to get involved in English soccer.

Only problem is I have no idea where as yet!

–––––––––––––West Ham rumours–––––––––––––––––––––

West Ham are hoping to have a take–over concluded before January so Zola will have money should he want it. David Gold is still being linked to purchase the club.

Zola is concerned about the 2nd CB position. Ever since he allowed Collins move to Villa (WHY???) he has been concerned about the stability of the back four. In addition, he is doubting Faubert's ability at RB, therefore may look to replace him. There has been talks that Sol Campbell (Please no) could be convinced to sign for the Hammers. Along with this, Zola would like to bring in Davide Santon from Inter on loan to cover the RB. If this doesn't occur, then Paulo Ferriera of Chelsea has been mentioned.

Zola is very happy with the midfield at the moment and doesn't feel it requires much, if any, change. With players such as Stanislas and Collision coming through as well as the crop of talent already there, he feels that any change won't benefit the team.

Franco will not be played as often after that poor performance against arsenal (commentator said his name about 3 times) and Zola will instead push Diamanti and Hines (who both performed superbly against arsenal) up with Cole and rotate the two. Nouble will get chances to play and Zola still hopes for Ashton to become fit. Zola, with Collins money, will still pursue another striker but will not push as hard as he did in the Summer.

Re the rumour of Sergio Busquets attending the Liverpool v Man Utd game last Sunday. Think your friend must have been mistaken as Busquets was playing that evening for Barca against Real Zaragoza at the Nou Camp. No approach has been made for Juan Mata, he is trying to use the name of Liverpool as a negotiating tool for a new contract with Valencia. Unfortunately Liverpool will not be making any substantial signings until we have secured Champions League football for 2010/11 and the £30 million that comes with it. That is unless anyone is stupid enough to give us our money back for someone like Babel.


Celtic update: Mowbray has until the end of this year to turn around results at Celtic a mere 2 wins from 9 at home is considered not nearly good enough. The dire performances are seeing attendances fall and the board fear season ticket sales will plummet next season. Also Stephen McManus will be stripped of the captaincy today after his ridiculous challenge that lead him to being sent off last night in the shock defeat by Hearts. Favourite to take the armband is Barry Robson. With the club already facing Europa League exit and out of the first domestic cup competition, Mowbray's tenure at Paradise is already looking short term.


My sisters boyfriend is a solicitor for the firm that represents LFC and has been come into some very interesting info. Contract offers being prepared for Reina, Mascherano but more interestingly came across a proposal for a certain juan mata as reported in the press today.


Got a friend who works at Ashton Gate and he has told me that Leicester have had a 2 million bid accepted for Nicky Maynard. Another rumours is Evander Sno has fallen out with Gary Johnson after Johnson subbed him at the weekend, Sno wants to return to Ajax and come back to Leicester as he is a big fan of soon to be Leicester midfielder Edgar Davids. After the blue's gave Edgar a new pair of blue glasses to try and lure him to the walkers stadium.


Forest fans it is vital that you know this, the only deal to be done by Forest is a move for Nicky Shorey once all attempts to persuade Bale to sign have failed. Also expect a move for Gary McSheffrey once Birmingham start to spend their cash in January. I am PSR.


beckford expected to sign a 1 year extension to his contract next week but if leeds fail to get promoted or don't make top 6 in the championship next season he will be aloud to leave the club
max gradel's loan deal will be extended to january when leeds will sign him also expect leeds to make a bid for a championship/premiership quality player in january and will try and tempt george boyd away from the posh


Sources close to Liverpool indicate Rafael Benitez has been tracking the progress of Matt Derbyshire at Olympiacos. He is thought to be lining him up as back–up for Torres and Ngog.SOURCE NAME IS–––M 510.


Pelligrini will be secked as Real Madrid coach by the end of the year so expect an attempt to lure Benitez to Madrid. However, it is unlikely Liverpool will accept as no other top manager will join the club until the current investment/ownership issues are sorted out and funds are available for new players. Benitez is now looking to offload Babel and a few other fringe players to finance a bid for Mata. He was interested in Mata in the summer but decided to give Babel more time. The player and his father/agent are now trying to manufacture the move also to force the price down


My friend works in the lounges at anfield and there were alot of special guests at the man utd match on sunday. Apparently two parties who are both interested in investing in the club were being wined and dined all day. One group were scandinavian and the other were from kuwait. However, the most interesting sighting was that of Sergio Busquets of Barcelona who is rumoured to be involved in part of any deal taking mascherano to Barcelona.
