jose mourinio keen to sign carlos tevez on loan until the end of the season...... unless man city take 10m to cover wages. although tevez hasnt been paid by the club, carlos keen to show spain he still has what it takes to make a player help win a league title which mourinho desperatly needs.(20)(18)Real Madrid are 7 points clear, they are far from desperate


29 Jan 2012 22:50:09
birmingham quick off the mark to sign southend united winger hall for 400k. He is one of the countrys leading asist and goal scorers and would be a great price for that sort of money with the clubs finances very uncertain until they get back to the premier league with boss hughton keen on young blood to take the team back(12)(11)He isnt for sale.

400k is laughable, 800k would be more realistic,Also, quick off the mark? You know the window closes tomorrow right? I'd say that's pretty late in the window...


29 Jan 2012 22:19:44

Stops us getting over excited.


29 Jan 2012 22:30:39
Ipswich to sign St ledger from leiciester
Leiciester to sign Morgan from forest
And forest to sign leadbitter from ipswich

In a deal which will see Ipswich given £1million from leiciester as it will only be a loan move however Ipswich can then sign him up for the mil at the end of season(3)(22) 

Leicester are paying Ipswich to take him on loan?I think you will find st ledger is no longer on the tranfer list!What a crock! St ledger is off the transfer list! And why would Leicester pay for him to go on loan!He is staying at the foxes.been taken off the transfer list


29 Jan 2012 22:26:50
Tottingham had bid accepted for Loic Remy expected to fly to england early tomowro morning(14)(36)I heard andy carroll going to spurs and defoe going the other wayDidn't Remy fly to Stoke once and then fly home :-) Could be a hobby of hisI fail to believe smething like this when the person who says it doesnt know how to spell tottenham {Ed015's Note - o ?}.Why would he leave now when he's got Champions League football for the rest of the season?!Who are Tottingham?Hes told spurs hes not intrested months ago and refused to even get into talks with take ur lies else were foolIts the team Ossie Ardiles used to play for!


29 Jan 2012 22:22:08
Bechio of Leeds is going to millwall for 750,000.
Also Baldock of West ham is going to Millwall for a similar price. Heard from a very reliable source.(12)(47)Leeds arent getting rid of anymore of there main players because theyre looking to improve the sqaud.What a ridiculous lie. Arguably West Hams best forward, why would we sell him to our worst rivals for a fraction of the price we bought him for 6 months ago?!Totally agree! Go back to howling at the moon!! LunacyDream onBechio to millwall......give overThis isn't likely to happen
wallyWhy balldock he is one of the greatest scorers ive seen at westham for a while


29 Jan 2012 22:14:11
Hugo Rodallega to Fulham for 3 million plus Andy Johnson(14)(27)

Bristol City are interested in taking Matthew Briggs on loan from Fulham. City also want Jody Morris from Derek McInnes' previous club St Johnstone.(12)(4)


29 Jan 2012 21:58:13
West Ham NOT willing to up their overall bid for Jelavic but are offering more upfront due to recent offer from Everton.
Also will include a clause in contract giving Rangers a 25% of sell on fee, however this will only be if West Ham do not gain promotion.

SpiderMan(21)(13)West Ham havn't made an offer for Jelavic?
There has only been 1 bid which was initially reported to be by West Ham, but was actually made by EvertonWest Ham have made 3 bids, last one went in two days ago but Rangers were waiting on hope somebody else would bid to up the pricetag hopefully, and thats obviously what happened.Stick to Champ manager i think!Cant see jelvic going Westham nowRangers still owe Everton 1.5mil from the Weir sale years ago.....Think theres only one place Jelvic will end up!What a loss for West Ham !


29 Jan 2012 21:38:49
Leicester will tomorrow confirm the signings of Wes Morgan and Ben Marshall.
Pearson still wants a couple more with Ricardo Vaz Te, Matt Ritchie, Lewis McGugan and Robert Snodgrass all on his radar plus a couple of others. He may however have to look at the loan deals as there may not be enough time to conclude anything more before the deadline(22)(18)Morgan is all but done, not sure about Marshall but i know they put a new bid in for him so maybe, but the rest? Not a chance. Just because they're in demand, doesn't mean Pearson wants them and certainly doesn't mean their clubs would consider selling them.


29 Jan 2012 21:32:24
Newcastle want Barry Robson of mbro for 1.5 mil(15)(35)


29 Jan 2012 21:26:03
Stoke have bid for Blackpool's Matt Phillips with a player going the other way. A newspaper claimed the bid was rejected but not true.

Wigan and Blackburn have asked re the availability of Fuller on loan.

Danny Collins will sign for Soton in the morning

Ben Marshall has been offered an improved contract and the club expect him to sign although he will be loaned out until the end of the season.......could he be the player to Blackpool?(15)(16)Marshall to Leicester is a done deal, would put my life on itWill there be sandwiches at your funeral?I hope they play the west country remix of that James Blunt song...

Goodbye moi luvver

See what i did there? Funny stuff i think you'll agree.If it's a 'done deal' how come Leicester haven't had an offer accepted? People talk such trash. They have put another offer in

29 Jan 2012 20:54:25
Matt Ritchie is desperate for a move away from Swindon to play in a higher division but has been told by Di Canio he will rot in the reserves for the rest of his contract if he dares put in a transfer request! Apparently it's a tough ship at Swindon with everyone tip toeing around Di Canio who is running the place through fear. (source: Richard Hughes ex Pompey player)(13)(11)Richard Hughes ex pompey player? never heard of you,I think you need to get your facts right fella??How would Hughesie know that?^^
Perhaps he still speaks to Ritchie, anyway its nonsensePdC is not going to let his best player rot in the reserves .... hang on, we don't have a reserve team. what a load of bcks


29 Jan 2012 20:47:12

Liverpool are ready to offer Jay Spearing along with £10m in exchange for Jack Rodwell. David Hoilett is another target in this window. Liverpool are tracking Xherdan Shaqiri and Edison Cavani with a view to summer moves.(14)(35)I wouldnt take jay spearing if you offered him for free. Rodwell is not going to liverpool.Here we go again, Liverpool to sign every top player in Europe. It's getting boring now.......just love Liverpool fans and there rumours!!Since when was Rodwell a top player in Europe? Over-rated...

But he still won't go to LiverpoolAfter listening to the pool fans on Saturday why would anyone want to go there?


29 Jan 2012 20:30:41
huddersfield are set to re-sign james berret from carlisle and ben marshall will have a medical at the club tomorrow(5)(18)Ben Marshall will go to Sheffield Wednesday IF he leaves Stoke.
The owls are a far bigger club than Huddersfield town in my eyes.
(I'm a Stoke fan by the way)Sorry but Ben Marshall is not having a medical with anyone tomorrow. He is set to sign a new contract by Tuesday and be loaned to a Championship club.You've got more chance of signing messi than Ben way he would drop down to playing for Huddersfield, he'll only play for Sheffield Wednesday in league 1!Im a carlisle fan so i know 1st hand how good narshall is...and he's wasted at sheffield 'long ball' wednesday. On current team class huddersfield are a much bigger team than sw. sw are stuck in the past. you WERE a big club. Hope marshall signs for neither though...don't want cufc to face him again! class.


29 Jan 2012 20:20:09

29 Jan 2012 20:16:54
Reading are looking to sign Crewe's Nick Powell with former Hereford striker Mathieu Manset going the other way on loan with a view to a permanent move at the end of the season.(3)(10)Lol not a chance, nick powell is wanted by aresnal, chelsea and liverpool...doubt he would move to readingI love the way Crewe always link their players with the top sides. They are 4th division for a reason. West Ham have had a good look at Powell and so have Bristol City. {Ed003's Note - Good prospect,Powell }


29 Jan 2012 19:51:14

sunderland to sign kevin davis from bolton for 600,000 and jay rodriguez from burnley for 4.5m(22)(25)When will people learn - we rejected a 5 mill bid from Saints, so why would we accept a 4.5 mill bid

Add 2 mill onto Jays figure then maybe, get your facts right before postingDespite the fact we turned down a 5m bid in summer?


29 Jan 2012 19:20:31
Reading FC are set to sign Kazakh attacking midfielder Zhambyl Kukeyev from Shakhter Karagandy. Kukeyev shot to fame when he scored Kazakhstan's consolation goal in the 5-1 loss to England in 2008.(13)(7)


29 Jan 2012 19:09:26
Brian McDermott has confirmed that Reading are set to sign two more players before the transfer window shuts. One is Robert Snodgrass from Leeds for an 'undisclosed fee'. Snodgrass is not keen on the move but Ken Bates has accepted the bid and is keen to move the player on. The other player Reading have bid for is Adam Flint from Swindon.(11)(18)If you are going to make rumours up, at least get his name right !That should say Aden, not Adam.Not a chanceSnodgrass is not going anywhere in this window confirmed by the player and club. The only unlikely event to change that would be a ludicrous bid above the clubs valuation of £8m - that isn't going to come from ReadingUtter rubbish. God, your rumour does not correspond with any relative certainties whatsoever, does it? No players in Leeds' first-team picture will leave between now and the end of the season, because we are not capable of replacing them. Just a look at our squad would tell you that much. No forgetting the fact that Brian McDermott and Jason Roberts admitted on television that further signings were unlikely, at least until the summer. I accept Reading and other interested clubs would have a good chance of signing Snodgrass in the summer, but if you think Leeds would let Howson and Snodgrass leave, with the way we've been playing recently, you're sadly mistaken. Why would Bates want to 'move the player on?!' That, if you'll excuse me, is ludicrous. Then you get Aden Flint's name wrong; further proof that this rumour is entirely made-up. My advice; check some facts, many of which are common knowledge, and use some common sense, for God's sake.Reading fans have now turned into Southampton and Leicester fans. Just because there good and you have money, doesnt mean you making a rumour up will lead to a signingAnd if any Leeds fan believes Snoddy is worth £8 mil then Holt must be around£50mil after all What the hell has Torres done or even CarrolineAll the crap about them signing Jordon Rhodes last week has proved to be rubbish, so they just move on and make up some more complete bollox.Hmm leeds fans are mad?


29 Jan 2012 19:07:19
West Brom are have bid £1.2m for Jem Karacan.(11)(16)


29 Jan 2012 19:05:21

charlton have been in talks with
crewe alexander over a possible
switch between yann kermogant and
aj leitch smith. a charlton scout has
been seen at alexandra stadium.
smith's last perfomances have been
brilliant, he has currently scored 7
goals. according to league 1,
hartlepool, mk dons have been in
contact to try to snap him up.

watch this space people :)

You'll be watching this space for a long time, what a load of rubbish, as if Charlton would get rid of Kermit to Crewe(1)(7)If kermit does go miss piggy may follow!

ben doverI agree tter rubbish

ricardo vas te to be annonced as sighning early on deadline day for blackpool fc(14)(14)


29 Jan 2012 18:07:14
Mk dons to follow up their magnificent signing of Alan smith with a double swoop of Barnet's deering and McLeod to be confirmed Monday morning(12)(7)I am not so sure that Alan Smith will prove to be a magnificent signing, big name maybe, but rotting for 2 years on £60K/week, he will take weeks to get up to the pace of the game and frankly any player who prefers to sit and take the cash for 2 seasons rather than go out and play some football, has to raise the question of desire ??


29 Jan 2012 18:01:30
Reading Fc Transfer Predictions - Your Thoughts

Coming In to Reading
Billy Sharp - Doncaster Rovers
Karleigh Osborne - Brentford
Michael Jacobs - Northampton
Ryan Bertrand - Chelsea (On Loan)

Leaving Reading
Brian Howard - Millwall
Michail Antonio - Colchester United (On Loan)
Noel Hunt - West Bromwich Albion

And A Potential Stadium Capacity Increase from 24,161 to 32,500 over the next 5 years(16)(20)Reading have permission to extend the stadium to 38,000. In stages.

Sharp - talks have been ongoing 'but not promising'
Osborne - failed medical and not going back for him.
Jacobs - We won't be going for now Kebe has signed
Bertrand - unlikely but would be amazing.

Howard wants to leave. Millwall don't want to pay a fee, we want some return.
Antonio is not leaving, Colchester enquired but he's deemed part of the first team squad now.
Hunt to West Brom was never serious.Correct good prediction
but not Osborne as he failed a medical, WhyDon't even max out your stadium as it is, why would it be expanded?The new investors have already said that 'when' we make it to the Premiership they will look to expand the stadium. With our catchment area, no major rivals nearby, etc, we've got the potential to expand and attract new fans if successful. We used to sell out in the Prem....

their words, not mine!And which side the m4 are you going to get the fans from to fill a 35000 seaterMight be an idea to wait until the takeover has actually been approved and confirmed before you start spending money you don't have. If the FA find something they're not happy with, the deal falls down and you lot look ridiculous, just a thought...

Assuming it all goes through, you'll get some money in the Summer. But you don't have any atm and therefore won't be signing Sharp (for example) until the Summer at least, and i suspect that he'll have moved to pastures new by then.


29 Jan 2012 18:00:14
Watford are getting Andreas Weimann on loan from Aston Villa(13)(5)


29 Jan 2012 17:57:29
Mapou Yanga-mbiwa from montpellier having medical at newcastle tomorrow(23)(12)A lot of activity in sjp tonight two black cars been in and out of the ground also something going on at Benton training complex medical,s ? Mbwia & BarnettaHelicopter flew in about 7.30ish i live about 300yds from bentonBarnetta would be nice. I also fancy that yute from manu to play on the wing... building our young reserve team to be the envy of the rest of the PL.


29 Jan 2012 17:21:35
mat ritchie and Aden Flint to leave both to Reading.
Lee cox arrives Mondaay, Kerrouche to stay.
No surprises before deadline at Swindon(5)(15)Dream on as we are not selling only if you want to pay 3m plus so keep on dreamingI've heard both of these linked to Reading. What is your source?Matt Ritchie was like a startled rabbit in the headlights today against Leicester, the step up from league 2 is too bigI've seen both Matt Ritchie and Adam Flint linked. Flint is a posibility as we need CB cover, especially now Morrison is out on loan.

McDermott is a known admirer of Ritchie but with Kebe, McAnuff, Robson-Kanu, Antonio, Sheppard and Obita available for the wings we might not be looking for someone else in that area.Flint won't go to Reading he wants to go to a bigger club with ambition like Aldershot


29 Jan 2012 17:15:44
Kim Jung Woo to Cardiff City.
Also Danny Rose to City on a loan deal.
Sheffield United's Ched Evans is also a possible transfer.(12)(15)Kim jung woo is highly rated surely he wouldnt sign for any british team ,where has this rumour come from


29 Jan 2012 17:12:43

Jamie vardy from fleetword town set to sign for southampton and break the conference record fee not sure why we need him but looks quite quick and clinical(23)(11)Hopefully Southampton do to Fltwood what they did to AFC Fylde with Richie Allen.What was that ?


29 Jan 2012 17:10:56
Millwall will sign Falkirk striker Farid El Alagui by tuesday(7)(4)Good luck to them as he was absolute dire against us (Celtic) today. couldnt trap a bag of cement!


29 jan 2012 17:01:13
watford fc possible signings-

james collins(shrewsbury)
benik afobe (arsenal)
hal robson-kanu (reading)(9)(14)They will not sign Hal KanuCollins maybe
afobe probably
robson kanu most likelyHRK is not going to Watford.Robson-Kanu isn't going anywhere. He turned down offers from other Championship clubs at the beginning of the season to stay at Reading when he was available for free.Frankly from what i have seen of him - best you keep him!Rather not.........HRK has played large part in our first team this season and McDermott is an admirer. Not chance he will make that step down to join minnows Watford.Haha I agree we've got no chance of getting HRK, he's class, but to call us 'minnows' is equally laughable.Minnows? I'd say Reading are only as big as us!


29 Jan 2012 17:00:51
29 Jan 2012 13:31:49
Ricardo Vas coming to see Oyston on monday to discuss terms at Blackpool.

Everton have made an official offer to sign Rangers' in-demand striker Nikica Jelavic.

Everyone jus sold a striker to Spartak moscow.Only if they sell Cahill to stokeIf Everton sign a player that they pay for I will eat my hatTo be fair they paid for gibsonI heard Stoke have made a bid for an Everton player in the last 48 hours


29 Jan 2012 16:35:48
Jelavic to move to Everton before window closes(28)(16)Sorry they can not afford 8m plus he wants 60k per week thats my westham pulled the plug,How do you know what they can afford? Answer.... you don't. Everton have two deals on the table for players from Stoke if they wish to sell.


29 Jan 2012 16:33:49
Burnley To sign Scott Wagstaff for 400,000 from Charlton(7)(10)

next week ,
Ridgewell in swap Mattock + cash , Blues
Odemwingie out swap Doyle , Wolves
Bednar gone Blackpool
Jara Reyes out to Brighton
dont shoot the messenger.(8)(12)Odemwingie is not going to the stWhy would we swap odemwingie for doyle..... pure bull stOdemwingie cant play with long,doyle long combo could be a winner,Odemwingie has done nowt since he got his new contract,cant stand these people who
constantly need fawning over and telling how good they are,rather have someone who will put a shift in ,as they say,than some ponce who constantly whinges about confidence and who craves constant adulation, we could swap him for a one legged donkey with an eye patch as far as i,m concerned as long as he gives 100%.Dont think the Doyle story is a goer although it would be an interesting pairing with Long.Lets face it non of the baggies that played yesterday looked like they wanted to be a baggie, they were completly put in a trance by the boys in Yellow (AGAIN). Hows Frank and his pals tonight


29 Jan 2012 15:55:29

29 Jan 2012 15:13:29
Nwkwo Kanu will join Watford either tomorrow or Tuesday on a deal until the end of the season.(12)(19)Oh i hope so. The man will always be a legend for Pompey, but his legs (knees especially) are shot! Long live the King. PUP.Wouldn't surprise me as pompey need the money and he doesnt play much these days. Still a legend :DKing Kanu Kanu
He's older than me and you
He's gotta be sixty two
King Kanu KanuEven if it's a freebie (like Herman), it gets his wages off the payroll.


29 Jan 2012 15:10:50
Southampton have agreed a fee for Non-League star Jamie Vardy from Fleetwood.
The deal includes Vardy and one other Saints youngster rejoining Fleetwood on lona for the rest of the season.(13)(22)Heard he's on his way to Palace.Where has this been reported?Don't think so leicester bound deal done on mondayI would imagine that if he had a choice he will be going to Palace because of their fantastic academy and reputation for developing talentYh but Southampton aren't exactly shabby with their youngster. Bale. Walcott. Chamberlain. Dyer. Surman. Best. Bridge. Baird, to name a few in the last few years.You mean an academy at Palace that can match Bale, Walcott, Dyer and Oxlaide Chamberlin? Get a life!He's not that young; he's 25Haha palace academy, maybe have a look at saints academy.He will stay at FleetwoodRemove best and add lallana to that list


29 Jan 2012 15:01:23
Southend will not be selling any key players on the deadline.

So stop posting crap about any of our players. there not for sale.(5)(13)"Southend will not be selling any key players on the deadline.

So stop posting crap about any of our players. there not for sale"

Your club is that rich that it can afford to turn away any decent offer, that I very much doubt.Agreed. No one going tomorrow or tuesday. Now this really is blue79 from shrimperzone.Oh really? I spoke to the manager earlier today and heard otherwise.Wow somone from southend like meeNo the club isnt rich, its sensible.

Why sell when were going for promotion and the league title.

Tell me that, can you answer me? That I very much doubt.'for sale'..haha,you don't have anyone worth buying!"Why sell when were going for promotion and the league title."

Amazing, your in League Two, if a Championship club wants anyone of your players. Which they don't as none of them are really worth it to be honest, they will get them.Why would they get them though? Just becuase they are in the 2nd tier does not mean they will get them?

Yes they play higher but I think the southend players would want to win the league with us rather then play for a mid table finsh.

And no one worth buying, check this site eveyday theres always one nutjob who is linking Hall or Ferdinand to a club.

Paul Jewell at London Road for saturday's match with Peterborough, running the rule over the possible new signings Pearce, Ward, & Henderson, was'nt dissapointed with what he saw, lets hope it happens by Monday or Tuesday(14)(12)Can't see it happening unless Ipswich come up with at least £5million for those 3. No offence but hardly a step up for those players, is it?Wards not been at derby for long?This wouldn't surprise me at all. These three played superb yesterday. Selling these would pay our tax bill.We won't sell any of them! Apart from stson sorry kitson.You may not think it's not a step up for them but if you had a choice of getting paid regularly or wondering if you were going to get paid - what would you do?As a Pompey fan, terrible if we lost all these players, but if we do, we will need money up front for the tax bill. That being the case, agree that Ipswich would get about £5m worth of players but they would probably pay less than half that amount due to our circumstances.The Pompey players haven't missed a payday yet this season.
And it's not that Ward, it's Joel Ward u plum!

Afc Bournemouth to bid 600.000 for Tubbs of Crawley before tuesday deadline.(6)(16)AFC Bournemouth haven't got £600k, and if Tubbs does leave Crawley he will be heading to the Championship.I am a Swindon fan and agree with this guy, if Tubbs leaves crawley it will be for the Championship, he is part of Crawley getting to league 1 which looks bang on they will go up, why would he leave a club that will be in league 1 next year to a league 1 clubDo your homework mate!! They have Russian oil money...... Everyone knows thatRead the post numpty!! It didn't say he would leave it said they will bid! Everyone is entitled to bidThe Cherries have loads of money to spend. We have a new owner and this week made an asking bid for Tubbs of £500,000 then Crawley up the value as they know Bournemouth have moneyYour right they haven't got 600k theyve got over £1.5 billion!! Where have you been the last month!! They have already signed 6 players for similar 600k fees!!1) If Tubbs left Crawley it would be for a bigger club than Bournemouth (no offence Cherries fans) 2) Tubbs aint going anywhere while Crawley still in the FA Cup.Bournemouth did bid 400.000 for tubbs a week ago only to be told to come back with a bid for 500.000 witch they did only for crawley to move the goal post saying they now want 600.000. i know that tubbs has agreed personal terms with the cheeries just waiting for afcb to meet there value on him.i also know that he wants to come back home as he is from around bournemouth and has a house about 8 miles from dean courtOnce again, read the post numpty!! Nobody is saying he will leave you for Bournemouth they are saying a new bid is being made as it is a FACT two bids have already been made and rejected! Bournemouth are bidding for every striker going so don't get paranoid about it, Bournemouth are a small club for nowCherries have no money so stop dreaming, i suppose you like living in cloud cuckoo land...

Saints on red alert after Celtic striker contract talks collapse

Jan 29 2012 by Alan Nixon, The People

Southampton's hopes of landing Celtic striker Gary Hooper are being boosted by a contract row between the star and his club, writes ALAN NIXON.

Saints made a £5million bid for Harlow-born Hooper, 24, recently and were turned down, but now the Parkhead outfit have refused to offer him a new contract.

Talks between the SPL giants and Hooper's camp were shelved last week, leaving Saints with a glimmer of a chance, although Celtic are adamant that Hooper will not go at the moment.

Southampton are set to sign STOKE CITY's Welsh international centre-half Danny Collins, 31, on loan for their promotion bid.

Collins – back from a spell at IPSWICH – had a medical yesterday before signing and the move could turn into a permanent one.
COYR(22)(24)The people? jeezo, if u belive whats written in that ur bloody crazy palComplete non story. Its well known that Hooper's agent wanted to negotiate a new contract now but they have agreed to wait until summer. Not a breakdown.

The people truly is a joke of a newspaper. Shocking journalism.

MacCollins wants to stay in North West, that's why he didn't sign for Ipswich.Sounds Like agent talk to meHooper going nowhere talks on contract put on hold til summer just as mac said , people reporting a lot of s##t.Sounds like you Celtic fans are getting twitchy - face up to it he's wants to be a SAINT ---------Sure he does. Just like the last time.

Crystal Palace close to signing Tshabalala on a free transfer at the end of the season.

However Clyne could be on his was to Manchester United with a fee reported to be at 3 million pounds agreed between the two clubs.

Zaha also linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, with serveral clubs linked with the highley rated youngster, these include Newcastle, Bolton and Liverpool. Though as Zaha has just penned a new 5 year contract earlier this season Palace could demand a fee of at least 5 million pounds to see him move away.(13)(7)

Matt Ritchie of Swindon to join Peterborough.(5)(28)AFCB also to rebid for ritchie before deadline.Heavily linked with Leicester and Reading in Sunday's papers.Ritchie is not going anywhere! Di Canio sees him and an integral part of the team and we no longer need to sell our star assets!From what I have seen of peterborough they are pretty good going forward but defensively poor, I would have thought another attacking player is not what they need right now.Ritchie is going nowhere unless a bid of 1.5million is received, no clubs want to pay that much for him which is Swindons valuation, the player is happy at town, so he wont be goingNibble!!! The Swindon kids are biting well tonight! It's school tomorrow so they'll be bathed and in bed in an hour

29 Jan 2012 12:40:50
Steven Naismith to join Aston Villa, Sunderland, Norwich or Swansea before the start of next season.(9)(27)Because naismith will leave the team he loves and give up on winning trophies and playing european football for all these mid table teams!Yes the chance of real football every week,good players always move down here,anyway your on the way down.Why not, the standard of football he will play in and against will improve the player, and he will earn more than Rangers are paying him. Rangers might be a big club, who qualify for Europe but seldom do anything, and very often can't even get through the qualifying rounds, and lets face it the reason they qualify is because they are effectively only playing Celtic for a place in europe. Financially they are way behind all 4 of the stated teams in terms of the wages they can pay, that's why PL clubs and very often championship clubs always pick off the best players from SPL.But what on earth would Norwich want him for,Lambert has already said we don't need any more players we have a great squad of players that work for eachother and are going places like Wembley and EuropeThats 4 teams join, why not add a few more. Or wigan, Blackburn, Bolton Qpr. Now he has options.

seriouslyI imagine most teams would wait to see how he recovers from his injury, which will keep him out well in to the summer. A move is more likely at the next January window. Naismith would happily make the jump to England (or Wales), as Kenny Miller did. Sad fact of the matter is that Scottish teams cannot compete on the wages front, and the prospect of playing a far higher standard of player would sway most players' decision

Swindon Are close to Signing Lee Cox from Caladonion Thistles (Cant Spell but you know what i mean)

In the Swindon Advertiser Today:

The Robins are understood to have recently had a five-figure bid accepted by Inverness Caledonian Thistle for the midfielder, after an offer of £25,000 was rejected last week


Lower league Scottish footballer........ Massive signing for you lot. I Spose after the alleged Tubbs and Heskey bids you had to go for a big name :)

Who gives a fk what you think. Stick to postinjg on your own team dickhead (if they are worth it)(7)(7)Since when was the SPL Lower League then? Read before you post mate. Good addition I think. Cheap and has potential & helped them get promoted to the SPL so good to have around in our promotion push. Can't wait for Tuesday to be out of the way now though. I don't care if we sign no one else as long as we can keep our best players for now.Lower League>? The guys a premier league player in Scotland..

Swindon's Matt Richie has again been linked with a move to local rivals Reading. [various sunday newspapers]

How do Swindon rate this lad?

£750,000 sounds a bit much.(7)(12)He is not going anywhere for less than 1.5 million, that is our valuation on him, he doesnt want to go so no issues, he will stay put, he is a fantastic player...£1.5m? LOL. You can't ask for that as a scruffy little League 2 club. Never gunna happen.He is under contract so we can set the valuation at what he is worth to us, if Reading or any other club dont want to pay it he stays, simple as....He's an average player he just stands out in a poor Swindon teamI think that £750,000 is a lot to pay but Swindon are not in a position to sell & the price has to be right for them. He is a great player, but i have to question whether the Championship might be a step too far at this moment in time. He is one of the first names on the team sheet at Town but not so sure that he would be at Reading. I think he should stick around and develop in League one first (providing we go up) and take it from there.Am a pompey fan and Richie came through our youth set up before being sold to Swindon, there may well be asell on clause in his contravt which would mean Swindon would want a high transfer to be able to replace him. In my view, when he left he was not quite up to Championship standard but probably is now.

Never post but its defo happeninOn holiday maybeChance to play in front of 45k every other week? He ain't gonna turn that down is he.

Everton make shock move for kevin doyle!(17)(13)Everton are more likely extend the contract of Doris the tea lady than sign a strikerThat's right Everton never sign anyone. Apparently the club have no money, The fact is they do. they just won't pay the high wage demands of most players. The cash I there for any player willing to play football and not just stick around for the pay packet.Makes sense to sign a striker from the club that pays the lowest wages in the Premiership, then.I'm hoping this rumour becomes true, Doyle has been a thorn in our side all season and utter useless since we gave him a 4-yr £35k a week contract. I think 95% of Wolves fans will be glad to see the back of the useless ar$e.

if saints gain promotion they will expand there stadium to 42,000 but if they dont get the go ahead they will build a new 55,000 state of the art ground near eastleigh + they have a vast amount of money and will buy hooper for 7.8m - watch this space(13)(33)Why would the Saints build a huge new ground when they fail to fill the current one? Keep dreaming. As for Hooper, don't make me laugh! All this talk of Saints being so rich and they've spent what, 50p getting some second rate nip in, brilliant!Dream on matey, think you've been drinking too much with they sailors. You's can't even fill your stadium at present never mind expansions. More years in the Championship to look forward toFirstly, Saint will expand the stadium ONLY when the club has re-established itself in the Premiership. That plan is based on two seasons survival first.

As for a new stadium? No need when the ground can already be expanded to suit up to 58,000.

Too much sugar for you today I think.Wow ... well played pompey fan !We do fill out current one in the championship. in the premier league our attendance will be further increased.

And I know for fact (Believe me or not, I dont care i know I'm right) that Southampton have purchased land in Eastleigh (Old BTC ground) for a new stadium.No you plank, they will make the capacity of st Mary's o 52 if they sustain premier league status for 3-4 years while Lebhierr builds a new "Southampton Arena" which will originally be for concerts but the saints can move into it if need be ! Also I would love to see hopper but IT WON'T HAPPEN and im a saints fan !Ok, time for a reality check.

1) The current ground has a capacity of 32,000. When last in the premier we filled it most games, and Cortese understands that the demand is there to expand the stadium.

2) Due to the location of St Mary's additional policing costs are incurred. Nicola Cortese was looking at alternative solutions to St Mary's in his first year in charge.

3) Southampton City council are looking to re-develop its waterfront areas, and the St Mary's site would be considered beneficial. Re-development would also also go part way to funding any new stadium.

4) Any new stadium build would automatically go to the Liebher empire.

So while St Mary's was designed to be expanded in two phases up to 54,000, it may well be that a new stadium will be built, either without expanding the current stadium, or after part or full expansion of St Mary's.

Certainly I get the feeling that due to location the local council would rather have the stadium elsewhere, but any planning application would probably take years to get approval - lets face it we were trying to get a new stadium for years following the Taylor report, and the Dell being limited to 15,202.

The one thing that is sure is that Nicola Cortese is here to stay, and he has a vision of where he wants Southampton Football Club to be - challenging in the premier league. As much as you doubters disapprove of our belief in our 'small' club, you may well find that in a few years time, you're feeling more than a little envious.Saints average attendance is over 30,000 and we took 45,000 to wembley in jonstones paint trophy and wanting more seats so could easily fill 42,000 but where in eastleigh theres barely any room cant see it happeningJust coz you took 42,000 up to Wembley for a day out doesn't mean they'll all come to see you if you get promoted. Lots of teams take large numbers to Wembley. Didn't look like 32,000 against Leicester (21,000 i believe). Don't think you'll fill your current ground if you're struggling in the Prem (again, IF you go up).The need for a stadium of the size mentioned is fanciful at best. Southampton's fanbase, probably more than most, varies according to their last result. If they do not get to the Premier aftr this season, attendances will drop, if they do, it would mean at season of struggle. For them, the only need for a bigger stadium would be if they could survive in the higher league for at least five years. They need to deal with the current season first!If saints gain promotion they will expand there stadium to 42,000 but if they dont get the go ahead they will build a new 55,000 state of the art ground near eastleigh + they have a vast amount of money and will buy hooper for 7.8m - watch this space

Jay rodriguez to sunderland ? . What do you think fellow clarets(5)(17)Why would sunderland want him for?JR will go to Norwich next season for £4mNot good enough for sunderland we want to improve competition for places we already have many who are betterNorwich for 4 mill, ha ha ha ha ha, get real

If you knew anything about us, we turned down a bid from Saints of 5 mill, so why would we sell for less.

6 - 7 mill plus add ons maybe

Bristol city to sign David weir on a one year contract and also sign either matty Briggs on loan from fulham or o'brien for 350,000 from leeds(2)(8)I very much doubt you'll have to pay that much for O'Brien. We only paid 250k to get him in the first place, and that was before he went all Carlos Tevez. I'm sure any bid around the 150-200k mark will be accepted pronto.
wallySeriously doubt that Weir would be given a years contract, until the end of this season maybe.


29 Jan 2012 05:06:26
Gus Poyet has stated that bournmouth made an offer for Will Hoskins which was never accepted and in fact was rejected. Stating why would we sell our best players. So jog on all you Bournemouth supports.
Also Sam Vokes signing from wolves on Monday as per local paper.(4)(4)Too injury prone for my liking lad, I was a bit shocked when I saw we bid for him but Bradbury seems too like his injury prone non prolific strikers...... Must remind him of himself many moons ago

Ilunga is to be offered a chance at championship football immediately after his release from west ham with Doncaster Rovers and Barnsley looking at the Experienced Defender.

I will update this page as i hear it more. But the news i have got at the moment is that he found it hard to sit and watch his career become wasted at West Ham, the hammers knew they couldn't sell him quick enough so released him, Ilunga's agent has sent emails round to a variety of clubs stating that the defender was being released and that the competition for his signature will be fierce. Rumours state that Peterborough are also in line to try and sway him with a move to their club. Interest from abroad but will keep you updated as the news is fed to me.

Watch This Space..... #ultimatenews1(2)(4)Why is this an "important notice" - if you had titled it "Trivia of little importance to anyone" - i would have understoodWow, how important do you think you are? i'm literally on the edge of my seat and... oh no hang on, it was wind.

Kris Boyd is returning to Championship Football. Strong Rumours from Cardiff suggest that the one time top hitting Scotsman could return back to the league. Cardiff need to bolster their forwards if they hope to push up and Mackay expects Boyd to do this. The only current competition with the bluebirds face is off Dundee United. Allthough Boyd is hoping for a chance to return back to the SPL he would only sign for rangers and no one else. Cardiff are willing to offer an 18 month contract to the scott who terminated his contract with ex-club Eskişehirspor due to them not paying him for a month. As Boyd is only 28 years of age it would seem no danger in offering him this contract and when rangers find them self in a powerful position financially approach for their once loved hit man. But who is saying he won't do wonders in wales and rightfully earn his way into the premier league where he failed to do so at both Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest.(6)(4)


29 Jan 2012 02:56:24
i know his name is spelt cywka but pronounced cyska.

with a free transfer comes signing on fees and wages, all that comes into play when you have a transfer budget, 'dinlo'. thats not to mention agent fees 'thicko', all from the one pot of cash in the end matey.(5)(0)That's funny, he was always annouced as "citka" over the tannoy so I would presume that they would have asked him how it was pronouncedIt's pronounced 'Seefka'Yesterday I heard it pronounced sifka.No they said at Reading SidkaPronounced SifkaHis first name is Tomas so lets just call him that!


29 Jan 2012 02:00:24
I saw on a website erlier that aperntly sean scannell will be named a cardif city player on monday ys every one taking our players!!(11)(15)Support neither but don't see this happeningCardiff fan here...cant see it myself

Can anyone with strong Cardiff City Rumours leave some rumours underneath this post as they have been very quiet so far.(0)(4)Rumour has it, that Evans is a major possibility. But what i heard, as my brother is media consultant for the bluebirds. mackay isn't looking at purchasing a forward only loan or free, Connor Sammon is linked heavily with us, as martinez wants him to gain experience from a top team. also Bailey from 'boro on loan or cheap buy due to the amazing performances of robson of late, thompson is key to holding the positions and with the increase of potential available from smallwood rumour has it is he could go for next to nothing. But the main rumour i heard is Kris Boyd is poised on a move to either Cardiff or Dundee UTD. chances are he wants to return to scottish football but only for rangers an 18 month contract could allow him to play football more regularly and also delay rangers to purchase him after the contract as they cannot afford to sign him now. Reply with feedbackIve heard cardiff about to sign a new window cleaner. Haaa haaa.
You aint signing no oneCardiff have made a bid for NooneI think we might be obtaining a silver cupOne known official approach only, which is the increased bid for Craig Noone.I thought you were going into administration. Signings should be the least of your worries.

Barnsley have been in contact with QPR and Mark Hughes in regards to a loan deal for defender Bradley Orr until the end of the season. Hughes could see this as a good move for Orr who hasn't established himself in the R's first team since the Promotion Campaign last season.

Nick Montgomery will not be joining Barnsley as Keith Hill is hoping for the deal to sign Leyton Orient's club captain Stephen Dawson to come to fruition before the end of the current window. Keith Hill is also looking to next season by keeping tabs on out of favour Manchester City pair Gai Assulin and Michael Johnson. The 2 trialists who Barnsley are currently running the rule over will, unfortunately, not be offered contracts with the South Yorkshire outfit.(7)(3)Whats your source? would like to get hold of Dawson, Assulin and Johnson and definatley Orr!!!

UTR!!Thought u was after clint hill not bradley orrTake it we have lost interest in MessiHasnt bradley orr been released by qpr as no longer required if so why loan ?


29 Jan 2012 00:38:40
Chesterfield to sign back Jamie Ward with Lee going the other way in a £0 swop deal. Ward is said to be unhappy with the lack of exposure he is getting as keen to make the 1st team for Northern Ireland. It is said he will make his debut against Sheffield Wednesday.(4)(11)jamie is really happy at derby coyr


29 Jan 2012 00:26:13
Latest report in the sports section of the Argus (Sussex & Brighton paper) states Sam Vokes joining Brighton with statement expected from the Albion on Monday.(8)(1)

BILLY SHARP will be moving south before 11pm on Tuesday, but who to ? SOUTHAMPTON or READING ? thoughts ?(22)(24)READING will sign him todayThink the Billy Sharp transfer issue is very dullAs a Saints fan, I can't see us signing him. But I can see Reading going for him. Iis a kinda marque signing you'd likely make after a takeoverApparently we are signing him tomorrow ( reading fan)To be honest dont know if i want a player who has had so much speculation
with other clubs
something must be wrong


28 Jan 2012 23:56:03
I have my doubts but I have heard that Ched Evans might come to the Welsh Capital and also (still with doubt) Aaron Ramsey might confirm a loan deal with Cardiff in February.
Strong rumour that another offer has been made (and possibly accepted) for Craig Noone. Also Jamie Mackie is said to be having a medical with Cardiff sometime early in the week. Malky is also looking at, Aaron Gunnarsson's mate, Gudmunsson (Icelandic international) to get on a free transfer. Michael Jacobs and Matt Phillips bids have been rejected and MacKay will not follow up on these bids.(4)(20)Ched could be a possibility but he brings with him a certain amount of baggage with his past etc so I doubt that Cardiff will take a chance on him, as for Ramsey we no chance he won't be put up for loan again,Craig noone we be with us before the window closes rumours about mackie are rubbish he's a regular at QPR, templeton is another name linked with Cardiff as for the Icelandic fella he's reportedly signing before the window closes too. Ive heard rumours we've signed a striker from the lower lower leagues irish league or welsh league I thinkRamsey starts for Arsenal


28 Jan 2012 23:45:44
Anyone heard Jose mourinho is quitting at the end of the season for a prem league club(39)(5)Just heard on skysportsI wouldn't be surprised if he goes to man utd, think Mancini will keep his job because Man City will win the leagueRumour is back to ChelskiIt's either gonna be spurs, Utd, city, Liverpool, arsenal or Chelsea. Glad I could narrow it down for youYes, its the gooners FACTYes its true, he's not getting on with the fans coz there a bunch of tts that don't have appreiciation for the quality they have and once you've beaten the best team in the world to the la liga title why would you want to try it again and suffer disapointment when you dont win it again.Bet he goes to arsenal provided they let him spend and wenger gets sacked because arsenal finished below 5th


28 Jan 2012 23:39:39
everton to bid for ricki lambert(21)(29)Everton have'nt got a pot to in, do you think they are going to buy him with magic beans?Don't bother never gonna happen,why would he leave to go to a club like Everton come on their not that good are they!Well longest serving club in top flight football and probably have the best youth policy in prem players coming through

Rooney - best English talent since gazza
Rodwell - full international
Barkley - will be special talent over next 2 seasons
Duffy - will be top centre half
Garbutt - break through over next couple seasons
And I can't remember his name now plays for u18 he is a goal machineNa i doubt it'why would he leave to go to a club like Everton come on their not that good are they!'

EFC, he would jump at the chance rather than stay at a crap Championship side.


28 Jan 2012 23:33:03
A few championship sides are looking at Walsall fc's mr reliable mat Sadler and future prospect Jamie paterson(3)(7)We had mat sadler at watford and he was awfulNot having them :P


28 Jan 2012 23:31:38
Cardiff to make a deadline day bid for Hearts' David Templeton.(9)(6)


28 Jan 2012 23:28:43
Milwall to bid for Cardiff's Stephen McPhail and Darcy Blake, they will probablly get McPhail but not Darcy as he is always 2nd choise to McNaughton, he is important squad cover.(1)(6)Somehow, I don't think McPhail would choose this time to move to Millwall. He's still recovering from illness after all. And he's getting game time, so that isnt an issue.
