Watford, Hull city and Crystal Palace are all fighting for the signature of DJ Campbell acording to the sources online. Ipswich were also believed to be after him but mick McCarthy has said there not bringing him back. Also I can rule Watford out because we don't need another striker. P.s Mick McCarthy has also said that he spoke to DJ and he did say he's moving to a club on a 3 year deal which he dosent want to name.

He won't go to Watford. While QPR are local and he may want to stay in the London area, Watford have better strikers not getting games - including one that is on loan at Stevenage and another at Southend.

It's not going to happen.



30 Jan 2013 22:58:19

30 Jan 2013 21:35:31
Swindon town transfer update, the reason for the Ritchie sale to Bournemouth for 400k yes 400k is Black did not get football league ratification for the takeover today and would have to put a further 600k into the club to stave off administration, the club need just under 2 million for the rest of the season, then the new owners will take over.

Fodderingham is being sold 800k
Williams off to Bristol City 300k
Collins to wolves could now be off but if they can do the deal it will be for 400k
Roberts - going to sheffield utd for 250K
Flint - Going to Chesterfield for 120k

Black feels we are safe from relegation and the new owners can build a team for a promotion push next year, They know PDC will resign but his wages and his fitness coaching team are expensive and Paul Buckle is the target as a replacement

I WORK FOR THE CLUB other players may also leave but the dressing room is shot, there will be an announcement from PDC in the morning.... Sad Sad times

What a load of BS PDC is a legend if he leaves I for one don't blame him. .

Serves you right overspending on 8000 gates does not pay.when will swinedon ever learn

You will never be safe with buckle

Unfortunately Swindon always undersell. They'll take 80k or less for all of these players.

There is no way on earth that anyone will buy foderingham for 800k i'd be very suprised if it reached 100k, and none of the other players mentioned will be reaching over the 100k mark, I don't know where people get these figures from, not every club pays massive fees for players who haven't established themselves fully yet and especially not half a season in league one!



30 Jan 2013 21:27:29
Marvin Bartley is expected to re join Afc Bournemouth
On a season long loan with a view to a permanate deal

30 Jan 2013 21:00:00
Bournemouth have bid 500k for port vale striker Tom Pope but it has been rejected due to Peterborough offering 600k. Eddie Howe expected to increase offer

P'boro have denied a move for Pope but they haven't denied rumour that they are looking at taking Burge tomorrow.

Asking for administration again, half a season in league two of scoring goals, and he's worth 600k absolutely no chance. bad-deal if true



30 Jan 2013 20:51:39
jack butland is on his way to the Brit to have talks with stoke. After asking to speak to him. Also darren bent is favourite to go to stoke in a deal that sees jones go the other way and 8mil. Carl jenkinson will not be going to stoke on loan.

Le Fondre is worth treble that, anyway Swansea would be a side step

Swansea to buy Le Fondre? Get in line!
You RRrrrrz

If we got Adam Le Fondre for 3.5 million I will run on the pitch butt naked with a gas mask on. No way we'd get him for that!

No he's not why lie

The owls been watching him for some time

31 Jan 2013 01:47:21
birmingham got no chance signing him due to lack of money, I imagine barnsley will be interested due to connections with flitcroft and rochdale, still highly doubt tranmere will take little money due to him only signing a deal recently and being injured for most of the time he's been at the club

ed are hull city after any of these dj campbell, adomah, gedo, darren bent, becchio, adam le fondre, ebanks blake who do you think is coming?

Have just heard that Kevin Philipps may be on his way to City from Blackpool

Campbell and Gedo (plus Fathi) should sign. Ebanks-Blake unlikely now. Rest are complete nonsense.

Le Fondre, hahahhahah never, he is very good in Reading

Im sorry but Campbell will not sign, he wants a three and half year deal and Hull won't agree with that. Gedo and Fathi just waiting for work permit and Saunders has said that a price has not yet been met for Ebanks Blake therefore he still could sign tomorrow

that jack butland is on his way to the Brit to have talks with stoke .birmingham have excepted a offer from stoke for the player and its understood he is keen to stay in the midlands .also stoke are going all guns to bring in Darren bent but it depends on stoke offloading a few players .and Shea is a deal to be confirmed tomorrow with the butland deal if talks tonight can be finalised

Lets hope we can get all three of these!

Wonder if this means Bego will be leaving. Unless Stoke are buying him now because Bego will be going in the summer and they don't want to miss out. Can't see that he's simply replacing Sorrenson though as Butland has said he only wants 1st team football.



30 Jan 2013 18:48:44
Cheltenham town tomorrow will sign Luke Rooney on loan for the rest of the season and Alan Bennett will be going to Wimbledon in a deal that will see Byron Harrison coming the other way.

30 Jan 2013 18:12:13
West Brom manager Steve Clarke wants to keep Peter Odemwingie, however he admits he could have no choice but to sell him due to recent controversy which has left him very unpopular with the fans.

Wingies going tomorrow, and no chance graham coming in, clarkes managed too wreck a great start to the season, he picks the wrong teams and then brings on the wrong substitutes for his complicated formations, lets hope mulumbu gets him out of jail, top half of table if we are lucky know, six weeks without a win.we have lost our luck somewhere



30 Jan 2013 18:09:34
Local bournemouth echo saying that £600,000 offer for richie has been made to swindon, sorting out personel terms before tomorrows window closes. With stiff opposition from championship clubs, this figure would be a steal. I personly feel the £1m quote yesturday would be a more likely figure for afcb to get their man- finally!

How are they working round the 65% rule

The Russian owner sponsored the shirts and stadium for 15million



Ryan Taylor has a broken collar one and is out for the season!



30 Jan 2013 17:59:56

30 Jan 2013 17:39:35
Ipswich are set to sign DJ Campbell after crystal Palace and Hull have both turned their attentions to Wolves forward Ebanks-Blake.

I have also had a sneeky feeling about this. He has been available for a week now and no one has snapped him up so I think we will make a late offer

Ebanks-Blake can only sign for one club. This leaves the other to sign Campbell. Town can't afford his wages.



30 Jan 2013 17:10:21

Can't see it somehow, he's a local lad but bury are looking out for a goalscorer, not midfielder!



30 Jan 2013 16:53:14

Huddersfield poised to appoint ex Falkirk manager Pressley as new manager. Risky strategy and not fans choice but will be named on Thursday or Friday morning. #M

No offence, but I don't think this will be true, I know he's just become the favourite under , but he is under pressure at Falkirk too.

I don't think that Pressley will be going anywhere.Huddersfield more likely to go for experience this time around

I really hope this is not true. Adkins or Di Matteo please and nothing less

Huddersfield's CEO has just said tonight before the Palace match that they've only just started talking to people on the shortlist, so this certainly isn't true

Oh no he wont, from a reliable source, asst manager of a scottish team who used to play with him

No Chance after watching tonights game Mark Lillis is defo up for the fight passion, guts everything you want in a Huddersfield Town Manager. Players put a shift in tonight

Forget all the other candidates.MARK LILLIS till the end of the season, and take it from there.

Your all talking rubbish, confirmed tonight, 70 people have applied for post with many suprisising and interesting results! All chosen candidates interviewed apart from one, decision will be made after last interview. Info from tonight's game.
Everyone can guess who the last person is from the speculation but it does not will get the job, the best candidate at interview will get the position and who fits in with towns future plans/asperations!

Difficult to make signings if you are under a transfer embargo?



30 Jan 2013 16:25:57
crewe have increased their intial asking price for byron moore by 50k with bradford city refusing to pay additional money. A price was agreed in princaple yesturday but crewe have since had a change of heart and increased the asking price. source from the top at crewe.

Local journalist says we're not in for Moore.

No chance of this I believe Leeds to be the team looking at Wells just hope he stays with Bradford untill end of season and then he can leave if the money is good but allot of Wells goals have come from our target man big james hansons knock downs and great hold up play i'm surprised nobody looked at him he could play allot higher

30 Jan 2013 19:25:39

Sorry to bring this up, but local press Tweeting AFCB have agreed 600k with Swindon for Matt Ritchie...

The new owners of Swindon have just said they don't want to sell Ritchie source local paper

Swindon have confirmed the bid and confirmed they will not sell him for that amount.

No need swindon are debt free now, as old Board wrote off loans of 9/5/10 million pounds.
If Mat Ritchie was to go would be in excess of 1 million plus/ABFC look out for when the day your mega rich Russia decides not to go on backing your club.
As for Ritchie Rumour is old hat don't believe all you read.
Also think back a few years when you had your problems???

Give it a rest, he is going nowhere.

Richie has signed for 500k on a 3 and half year deal, would just like to ask all the Swindon fans who told us we'd never sign Richie, who's just signed for bournemouth?! !

Yes deal was done last year apparently but not finalised in time to beat the transfer window shutting

Yep its true, selling your soul to a souless money pit.



30 Jan 2013 16:04:54
Notts County are in for a new striker after lee hughes leaving the club on the raidar are

Matthew Barnes Homer
Calvin Zola
Adam Morgan on loan from Liverpool

May get Barnes Homer Other two Rotherham bound................

Morgan on loan at rotherham.

Not a chance for any of those three

Seeing as curle said yesterday he's given trew 7 BIG NAME players all 3 are unlikely and I swear morgan has been loaned to rotherham or somewhere in league 2 ...



30 Jan 2013 16:00:20
Cortese to get spanish centre back Fernando Amorebieta for a steal from Athletico Madrid.

Surely Athletic Bilbao will have a say considering that's who he plays for...



30 Jan 2013 15:57:46
Lewis Guy set to join Rotherham from St Mirren



30 Jan 2013 15:56:23
Nahki Wells to leave Bradford for Leicester tommorow in a deal which involves Jamie Vardy joining Phil Parkinson's side on a season loan

Bradford chairman confirmed via local paper this morning that no approaches had been made for Wells, not even a polite enquirey!

I saw Jamie Vardy play at Huddersfield last sat and he didn't have a kick. Poor player! Would not swap with a in form striker.

He has a final to play in first - doh!



30 Jan 2013 15:55:59
Michel vorm being considered as a replacement for the departing bla victor valses by varcelons



30 Jan 2013 15:54:02
Danny Hylton of Aldershot to sign for Rotherham tommorow



30 Jan 2013 15:47:20
barnsley have t'rned down a bid for john stones from wigan, barnsley are also set to sign chris o'grady from sheff weds



30 Jan 2013 15:41:20
Brighton will not be signing Virgil Van Dijk... It is stated in dutch news today that there will be no improved offer... This can be seen if you type his name into a search engine and click the news option. The article is in dutch. Luckily I have family members who speak dutch but use a translator website if you'd like to for see yourselves....
Unfortunately we will have to find a defender elsewhere.



30 Jan 2013 15:39:43
Millwall to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham by end of play tomorrow. Kane will be recalled from his loan at Norwich after millwall had a bid accepted, Adam smith will sign on loan until the end of the season after playing his last game of his current loan last night.

I really do hope that this is 'TRUE'? Have my doubts though!COYL

I really hope so but I doubt it

I'd rate this as a possible 0.5/200,000 chance! The club has no ambition

I really hope so then send tyson back! waste of space that melt.

I am a Norwich fan and although I feel he is very OVER rated he is highly rated by Spurs as a prospect and there is no way Millwall could afford him :L

I beg this is true...

30 Jan 2013 20:08:35
Norwich have rebuffed an enquiry from millwall for Steve Morison as they are using the welsh international as bait to land becchio from Leeds. Morison apparently is keen on a move back to the South London club instead of moving up North. Leeds want to get his 14000 a week wages of the bill to pay new arrivals

I think we can buy kane because we had 1.5millionlinned up for chris wood



30 Jan 2013 15:39:38
Any Middlesbrough FC news?

Apart from dyer signing, I keep hearing on here rumours of Saha and Bentley as well, but I doubt it.

30 Jan 2013 22:25:32
josh off to Chelsea according to twitter.



30 Jan 2013 15:38:44
have seen matt ritchie outside selhurst park today

No you havnt as he's signed for Bournemouth. haha



30 Jan 2013 15:38:41
Southend United's Paul Sturrock is considering his future in Essex with the club, once again, under a transfer embargo. Sturrock was waiting to do business on two key pieces in his promotion push jigsaw, only to be thwarted by the embargo, placed, as I understand it, on monies owing to other clubs following loan deals. Millwall, Peterborough United and Leyton Orient are all in that particular queue. Additionally, a high-profile Southend player, currently frozen out at Roots Hall, has not been paid any wages by the club this season. His agent has filed legal papers against the club for constructive dismissal.

The player in question froze himself out of Southend and refused to play or train with them. He has broken his contract so many times it is unbelievable and should pay compensation to the club not the other way around!



30 Jan 2013 15:14:22
heard that bayern are interested in taking chico away from swansea. have any of the edds heard anything regarding this please

red davey {Ed001's Note - not a thing.}

Yes i'd heard but wait and see

Newspaper talk based on him playing for Barcelona be a couple of years ago. 1+1=10



30 Jan 2013 15:21:03
Tottenham Hotspur's are set to make a bid of £3m for Middlesbrough left back George Friend on a 3 half year deal

Maybe 5 million and we'd consider

No chance for 3M. Boro don't need to sell him and would not choose to do so until the summer and that would only be on the basis that the club is not promoted to the premier league

When you 'bid' for a player, you don't decide on the years of the contract straight away, you have to negotiate



30 Jan 2013 15:14:24
Liam Trotter talking to Watford about a £2m move with Mark Yeates going in the opposite direction

No chance of this happening, not good enough for Watford I'm afraid!!

All the people who keep saying all these players arent good enough for Watford please shutup.. you clearly have no clue on building a quality in depth squad... if you think udinese are going to keep giving us players for free think again. Looking at potential in our league is the way forward and with Birmingham struggling financial we should make the most of the discounted quality playersl

^ That's a bit harsh, I'm a Watford fan and think Trotter is class. I'd happily have him in the side over Hogg.

Here here. Charlton bristol city. 6 changes and 2 defeats. We need better squad players to keep momentum as our favoured starting XI can't play every game. Also injuries/suspensions will happen.
So some of the players being mentioned would be gratefully accepted at the Vic.
I will however say that it is a rumours site and people can post what they wish in terms of players without any concrete evidence and lots are to provoke other fans reactions. So stop dismissing players that are good enough for watford and posting ridiculous comments, it is making genuine wfc fans look arrogant. We are not. Remember bassini petchey etc etc. be glad of where we are now.

Good call, strengthening the squad with quality English players is a great idea as Redmond is well worth buying, we are lucky to be in this situation so lets build on it and buy who we can

Trotter is a bit over rated, he is worth 500K at most

Maybe Millwall are trying to cash in so his agent is trying to get him a move?



30 Jan 2013 14:49:44
Saints are trying to sign Alejandro Gomez from Catania, He is a winger from Argentina who would fit Pochettino's mould but may cost a bit so don't expect anyone else. If all else fails we will get Ricardo Alvarez at a cut price



30 Jan 2013 13:48:41
Leyton Orient are battling with Yeovil Town for the loan signing of Marvin Bartley, the club have also spoken to Darel Russell but he looks set to join Southend to the end of the season.
Michael Symes is close to joining Southport on loan till the end of the season.
Norwich, Celtic, Leicester and Millwall are all considering bidding for Moses Odubajo tomorrow with Millwall already having a £75,000 bid laughed out of town.

Decent Rumours, although I have heard that Symes will be joining Rochdale, and Griffiths could be returning to his old Club Port Vale.

Orient will not sell Odubajo, while they are still in the JPT Cup, and definately not for silly money. The Lad will remain at Brisbane Road for the time being, to further his education.



30 Jan 2013 12:24:23
Young Chelsea player Rohan Ince second cousin of Tom Ince and nephew of Eric Young on trial at Albion came on for development squad. looking to impress to gain a contact, can play as Defensive midfielder or as a Defender. Will be a good prospect and one for the future.

It is true, watched him play last night for the development XI, started ahead other defenders at the club. looks a good prospect.

Burton ? West brom ? Brighton and hove ?etc !



30 Jan 2013 12:10:49
Charlton very interested in Jeffrey Schlupp, he's on trial at Moan you at the moment and if they're not interested Powell will make a move for him.

Dont believe that Manchester united are interested, he is there for experience and Leicester are taking advantage of the relationship with Manchester united by sending him training with them

I've heard from a very reliable source that this will happen, expected to be completed around midday tomorrow.



30 Jan 2013 14:32:43
Becchio to join Norwich City for £1m + Steve Morrison. Also, Habib Habibou will join Leeds on Thursday for around £1.5m.
Source: Neil Warnock

Habibou to come in on loan until the send of the season! with a view to a permanent deal, warnock in, no winger until loan window opens.

Hi i'm a norwich fan, we're happy with deal for becchio. morrison's a good player, strong, good goalscorer I think he's just got bored being 2nd to grant holt. will def do a good job for leeds be sad to see him go.

U mean becchio and 1m for morrison



30 Jan 2013 14:29:48
QPR are set to sign 3 players tomoroow, the old Redknapp magic is in full swing. Peter Crouch is the most publicly well known of the 3 targets. My sources have lead me to believe that Aiden McGeady and Chris Samba are Harry's top targets although he has other players on the list if they don't sign.

QPR are running themselves like a failing bank. Spend to cover your mistakes, probably resulting in a complete collapse with no chance of a bailout.

30 Jan 2013 19:37:19
Still think odemwinge will happen as well
Samba and crouch for sure



30 Jan 2013 12:53:03
Sheffield United to make a shock bid for Burkina Faso striker Alain Traore to replace striker Nick Blackman. Although Traore is injured at the moment he is expected to recover soon so United can make an 800K bid.



30 Jan 2013 14:55:30
Coventry to Sign Gary Madine from sheff wed

Please.............NO, NO NO!

The manager said he would like to have him... i'd like to have messi at my club but it doesn't mean its going to happen

Im not too keen from when he played for us as a loanee, however I trust Mark Robins judgement on please go ahead and lets see!

It could help us gain promotion.

Whoever put "No" obviously doesn't watch much football. Madine would be very effective at our level.

What a signing this would be great news.

30 Jan 2013 18:59:31
Would be a great sighning for any l1 side bags of potential has goals in him but not bin given a fair crack this year

Robins has said he's interested it would be a class signing

Gary Madine is a proven goalscorer in this league, physical, finisher, bit of pace. Overall, twice the player of Clarke.

To be honest I would like to get Madine in, and Jennings out.

Why does everyone want to resign old cover players. Marine had his chance. Just because he did well for sale.we'd does not mean it will be repeated at coventry. Get mcgoldrick back tho.



30 Jan 2013 14:51:22
Nathan Redmond is Watfords latest transfer target according to news online.

Watford won't be the only ones interested, would be a decent signing for the Hornets though!!

Birmingham have denied any approach or bid tonight... may be some bartering going on here but seems honest.



30 Jan 2013 14:41:22
Bristol City fans are in for a treat tomorrow. As many as 4 new players could be signed on deadline day. Robbie Earnshaw is set to sign on a free transfer. Darren Ambrose could tie up a season long loan with Kyle McFadzean signing for £750,000. But the latest rumour to come out today is that O'Driscoll is set to bid £500,000 for Derby 'keeper Frank Fielding.

Dont think so somehow earnshaws wages will be to high seeing as we are trying to cut the bill, McFadzean deal is off untill the summer! we don't need another keeper because heaton is more than capable, ambrose on loan is a possibility as we are short in midfield due to injury

Fielding ain't leaving lol.



30 Jan 2013 14:39:11
Ramon Nunez to go to SPL side Aberdeen from Leeds for around 800k. {Ed039's Note - You must be mad if you think Aberdeen have £80k to spend never mind £800k)

Nunez is a free agent now since his contract with Leeds has been terminated, so he would cost nothing to but but I cannot see him going to Aberdeen anyway.


Seeing as he had his contract cancelled by mutal consent makes this wrong. At least do abit of research!

He is a free agent!

We released him from contract yesterday he would be a free signing, bit unlucky at leeds he is very skillfull player did not get a run in first team

Also mad to think Nunez is worth 800 quid ! 800,000 quid I will ask the wife to drop him off on the school run from Wakey ! MOT

Ramon Nunez has already been released by Leeds!

Nunez is a free agent and would cost nowt



30 Jan 2013 14:23:56
Ebank Blake seems to be coming to hull

He is not coming yet they have had a bid rejected though which means there very intrested ...



30 Jan 2013 14:22:50
Derby have recieved a £1.25m bid from Peterborough regarding top scorer Theo Robinson. The Rams will allow Theo's representatives to talk to the Posh but no deal will go through until they can find a replacement. Norwich's Simeon Jackson is 1 target. A bid of £800,000 could be tabled as the strikers contract expires in the summer.

1.25m for robinson would be accepted, but I doubt it is true tbh, also Jackson may have a wage that is to high for us

We're not selling any players at Norwich! Just adding, get you're facts right!



30 Jan 2013 14:13:00
mohamed kamara from partizan belgrade to bolton

Be a great signing



30 Jan 2013 14:06:53
Heard stoke have signed brek shea
and martin Olsson booked for medical on Thursday

Crouch most likely to go QPR
But from looking at tweets from jones and his misses its most likely he's being forced to leave

30 Jan 2013 20:33:27
martin olsson has not booked a medical I wish people would stop posting there dreams. A fee has to be agreed before talks can be held with the player when a fee and personal terms are agreed then a medical goes ahead.



30 Jan 2013 14:05:41
Charlton due to sign Sanchez Watt from Arsenal if he can prove his fitness.



30 Jan 2013 14:01:01
oldham will follow uo the signing of chris iwelumo with approaches for leicester city's Richie Wellens and Leeds United's Dominic Poleon. Wellens is well know to both athletic and dickov, leeds are willing to send poleon to the latics hoping it has a similar effect as that of when aidy white spent the season on loan.

Iwelumo and Poleon are a possibility on loan. But Wellens is needed for Leicester's promotion push.

Chris iwelumo has gone to notts co

This post seems one of the better rumours.



30 Jan 2013 13:52:59
Dyer and Luis Saha at Riverside, Bentley already been yesterday.

With what money to pay for wages?



30 Jan 2013 13:34:01
Swindon Town have today been sold, the consortium have purchased a large chunk of Andrew Blacks shareholding, the only statement was they will be meeting today to discuss the transfers PDC has suggested as their aim is to get Championship football ASAP.

Sean Wright Phillips appears to be a certain target, as does Hollands and Martin.

Luke Rooney is also poised to follow Paul Benson on loan at Cheltenham Town until the end of season.... {Ed003's Note - surely you mean Bradley.}

Not Shaun but Bradley Wright Phillips - arrived on loan.

Sorry did mean Bradley, wishfull thinking on SWP

BOURNEMOUTH BID 600K For Ritchie The great sell off has begun

Could be truth in this as Bradley Wright Philips has just turned down a move to Bournemouth as they wouldn't guarantee him first team football



30 Jan 2013 13:00:24
Cheltenham are close to signing Luke Rooney on loan from Swindon.



30 Jan 2013 13:40:41
Derby have made a bid of £1,000,000 for Norwich striker Simeon Jackson.

Gaurentee they havent. where do you get this rumour from ?

Love your sense of humour

One thing to say. lmao. We havnt got 1 mill to spend on a player. only way this happens is if some 1 is sold.

And also. why would we pay 1 mil on some 1 whos contract runs out in the summer ? come on ffs

Not a chance. why would he want to drop down a division to derby? derby also could not afford his wages



30 Jan 2013 13:40:05
Ive heard from a reliable source that there will be a press conference tommorow anouncing the permanant signing of Harry Kane. I can only hope this is true!

Clearly you are joking around. One of the worst players ever at Carrow road.

Press conference where ?

You have not put a team SO where is harry kane going ??????

What club is harry kane believed to be going to?



30 Jan 2013 13:39:51
Bids on the table this morning at the Pirelli Stadium for Jacques Maghoma, Matt Paterson and Calvin Zola. More to follow................



30 jan 2013 13:33:31
scott boden gone to alfreton on loan untill 28 april. think this will be the last we see scott - shame had the poetential but never realised it! good luck mate.



30 Jan 2013 13:13:47
Stoke should sign Brek Shea by the end of the transfer window, he's had his medical this morning
Stoke remain intersted in Arsenal full back Carl Jenkinson although it is unlikely that Wenger will let him leave even on loan
Stoke are interested in signing Darren Bent from Aston Villa
Peter Crouch likely to move to QPR, Jamie Mackie is not going to be used as part of the deal as Stoke have stated that they have no interest in signing him

Lets hope Stoke only stay interested in Bent and do not actually sign him. I am sure Villa are eager to off load him to anyone.

Why :/ Bent would be a great signing for stoke, need someone who can actually score goals

Bent to Stoke in a deal worth 10m.

Bent turned Stoke down before so does it show how desperate he has become to leave Villa. He is a proven goalscorer but we do not make many chances at Stoke for the strikers. After last nights inept performance we need much more than a goalscorer. We need some one who can get their tatics right.

30 Jan 2013 20:19:44
Every single stoke fan is the same we need a striker than score goals we need a goalscorer but we could have the best finisher in the game and not score we need more attackive displays from pulis and some better players to get it up the field first

We have the players, we just don't have the manager to use them to their potential, coates feels safe from relegation with pulis is charge so nothing will change any time soon



30 Jan 2013 12:59:06
Stoke in talks with Tomas ince and crouch on his way to talk to qpr

Hope Crouch does go for Crouch's sake. He is a good player and wasted at Stoke with the tactics of Pulis. What Stoke need is a really strong forward that can muscle the goals in or better still a new manager. Pulis ahs done a really good job at keeping Stoke in the prem but that is all he is doing. Stoke bought Crouch, Adams, etc so that they could move on from the long ball, long throw, but seemingly they have not moved on. Wrong players or wrong mangager ?

30 Jan 2013 14:43:12
im a stoke fan and I can see where you are coming from as pulis has done a great job to keep us up but then again we are over acheiveing as it is but if we do want to continue to progress we need to make a change but if you watch are play you might be able to see that our play is evolving as we are using the mid a lot more than we did the previous season so maybe pulis is changing his style of play hopefully by selling the big men such as crouch and getting in fast players like bent and brek shea hopefully the 10 year champions pplan will come into action soon ;) aha good luck to the season for your team :)

I respect what Pulis has done for Stoke, its fantastic but I don't think he can get stoke into the top 10, he can't keep a consistant run of positive results going and his tactics result in too many draws, I think coates is too scared to let him go because pulis has never relegated a team and coates feels safe with pulis at the helm

Wrong manager he needs to go. Players don't look interested in playing his style of football

Wrong Manager I think Like you said he's already done what he needs to do let someone else take the reins and see what they can do with stoke.

First and foremost why would Thomas Ince want to come to Stoke when their are far better clubs after his services. Secondly Stoke are not performing above their station. Since promotion Pulis has had the full backing of the Coates family to the tune of being the third highest net spenders during our time in the premier league. Pulis did a good job in getting us where we are today but he is now out of his depth. He should have gone two years ago. I was a season ticket holder prior to his return but after he came back I refused to renew knowing what fayre he would be providing week in week out. He has bought some good players in but also wasted millions of pounds of the chairmans money. There is no sentiment in football and now is the time for Stoke to move to the next level and a new manager is needed for this to happen

Be careful what you wish for. Ask any Charlton fan.

How can any stoke fan say pulis is the wrong manager for the club we have some auwful player that stop us getting top 10 in the leauge it not his fault

30 Jan 2013 20:25:15
sacking pulis will not help stoke at all I think you need to grow up personally as pulis has done wonders for this club and created history. Pulis is not the best manager but he's brought us to the prem and kept us there and we have seen in the past with derby, blackburn etc that sacking your manager does no favours what so ever and if pulis left who would we bring in? nobody and we would end up going down!

Pulis is the best manager for the footballs tactics he uses and also the best manager Stoke City have ever had. We know the style of play has always raised conern but we know the players are not to blame. It doesn't mean each player can't play football its just the way the manager has set it out for them. Don't get me wrong I hate it when Whelan, whitehead and co are given chances week in week out and they not even upto standard. They should be considered as players who need to be sold. I get depressed seeing there names on the team sheet. Every team has a bad run and it's apart of sport but we should not be criticising Pulis as he has done fantastic. It's only a matter of time when Pulis will start to play real football as he will have no choice if the quality keeps coming in. He rather be safe first and have the best team than be sorry



30 Jan 2013 12:51:07
Zubar sold to AC Ajaccio according to tv webiste

Got nothing for him. just released him from his contract. I liked him to be honest.



30 Jan 2013 12:44:56
A few rumours doing the round about possible Preston new faces.
Lee Miller - ST - Carlisle
Amine Linganzi - CM - Blackburn (loan)
Roarie Deacon - ST - Sunderland (loan)
David Worrall - Wing - Bury

Also, due to the arrival of loan of Declan Rudd yesterday, it could mean Westley will try and cash in on Thorsten Stuckmann before his contract ends in the summer.

You won't be able to sign two players from this division
Miller and worrall is close to 500k I would of thought

30 Jan 2013 13:45:49
Earlier in the week I said SCS and Huntingdon would leave PNE by Thursday and SCS has gone to Rochdale

Lee miller won't be going to Preston if he leaves it will be to rangers only

Lee miller will NOT be going to Preston he will go up to Scotland or to a team in the championship heis far too good for preston

Deacon has already being released by Sunderland so is a free transfer.

You won't need to sign Deacon on a loan as he has been released by Sunderland.

Why would we try cash in on Stuckmann ? and leave a Loanee as first choice who could be recalled at any point? Westley said Rudd is here to push Stuckmann for the Goalie Slot not to replace him.

and Stop calling it HuntingDon - it is Huntington

You do realise Rangers can't sign players for like 2 years ?

^ So has Linganzi..



30 Jan 2013 12:38:44
Crystal Palace Have signed George Boyd Will be Official On the Crystal Palace website at about 3:00pm today.
Slyvan Ebanks Blake will sign for Crystal Palace tomorrow on transfer deadline day. Ending Crystal Palace's transfer activity.

Hope this comes true, Boyd I'd probably say is done now. Ebanks Blake? Not sure, thought it was going to be happening, but now I find it unlikely. A defender wouldn't go down badly though, a new RB, been a bit vulnerable there.

SEB won't be signing, but Boyd will and at 200k, a bargain

Would like Blake but can't see this happening now

30 Jan 2013 15:26:46
Hull have just had a bid turned down for ebanks. looks like its between you two for him though. either way I wish him well. gutted and dis-illusioned wolves fan.

But Palace now have Jazz Richards on loan for RB

Has not signed yet and it is 4 o'clock but I still recon its a done deal

This is to Ed. btw do you edit people's replies? {Ed003's Note - only foul or abusive stuff,if it's not busy I'll remove the "what a load of rubbish" (it's not the best way to start a debate) atm I'm deleting them,they are just pathetic along with the people who think being able to spell makes them better posters}

Well that didn't happen....



30 Jan 2013 12:28:48
Qpr ins before transfer deadline:
Possibly one midfielder!

Rolando is about to sign for Napoli

Rolando no he's signed for Napoli this morning for 6.5 million

30 Jan 2013 15:59:15
Rolando deal not complete with Napoli yet! So deal could still be done! Deals ain't done unti the player signs on the dotted line!



30 jan 2013 11:36:46
reading did not pull out of move for ince as confirmed by hobnob today reading are rising bid to 8m today.



30 Jan 2013 11:21:11
Celtic are to sign russell for 1.8 mil, deal is almost done and dusted. And hooper to go for 7 mil by tomorrow night.

30 Jan 2013 12:32:03
Russell ain't worth 1.8m Hooper going nowhere until summer



30 Jan 2013 11:15:58
Palace waiting until deadline day to make final bid for Adomah as replacement for zaha, 2 million pound plus Stuart O'Keefe and Danny Gabbidon to join City on loan until end of season.

Doubt it, apparently we only offered a million and it would take double, as well as that, Gabbidon's been an important player and would leave us incredibly short if we let him go. O'Keefe? Well, I suppose we'd let him go, not really cut out, hasn't had the chances since Freedman left.



30 Jan 2013 10:57:14
Brighton have enquired into taking Spurs defender Adam Smith on loan until the remainder of the season after failing to land Dutch youngster Virgil Van Dijk.

30 Jan 2013 14:22:48
not sure but might still be on loan to millwall

Quality defender ruined us at the Amex this season, looks like he's staying at millwall though according to other sources



30 Jan 2013 10:55:37
Watford put in a £2 million bid for nathan redmond

Decent young prospect, fits the Pozzo's and Watford's setup, would be a great addition!

Hope this is true, great young player

Not really what we need though. Plays the Forestieri role according to Brum fans

Makes sense. Fits the Pozzo model as stated above and Birmingham need to sell to sort out their finances. Not entirely sure where he'd play as we don't use wingers, but I like him a lot so would be good to see him at Watford.

Rumour Submitted

Rumour Submitted

He's rubbish and overrated, to say the least.

I thought he was an attacking winger? That wouldn't fit our 3-5-2 formation

"Plays the Forestieri role according to Brum fans"

Spends a lot of time on the bench then?



30 Jan 2013 10:49:07
Gillingham are making a late bid for Jacques maghoma of burton albion along with two more deals in the pipeline.

Clearly made up out of thin air. Try harder!!



30 Jan 2013 10:26:06
Crystal Palace currently have George Boyd at the Ground trying to get a deal all done before 12 today to play away at huddesfield tonight. still a long way to go but Boyd wants to help get his boy hood club to the prem

He had to be registered by 12.00 yesterday, to be able to play tonight.



30 Jan 2013 10:19:04
Coventry have a midfielder and a striker coming in this window, although one or two will leave with Rotherham and Bristol Rovers in for Steve Jennings.

Why would Jennings go to league 2 it's not a good league for him.

That's his level, he's too slow for league 1.

Habib habibou will not be joining leeds utd as will not pay 2.4 million asking price

He only has 6 months on his contract 2.4 mil is more than holtby!

Becchio to Norwich City for £3.5 million and Steve Morrison joining Leeds.

That would be the equivalant of a 5m deal or more!

30 Jan 2013 15:19:25
So far, no ambition from Norwich. I fear the worst...

Would be good for Norwich if that happened. Net effec to NCFCt: likely no salary increase and £875k amortised annually from his contract. Plus intangible benefits from swapping a demotivated player for a motivated one. Pretty good terms...

Who came up with the 3.5M, Sky are reporting it as a swop deal, effectively because Becchio will be out of contract and his value is falling all the time, so the 3.5M is not even close, perhaps a small adjustment is payable, and his ages will be more, but a good deal for Norwich, because they are basically getting their money back on Morrison who has failed to impress this Season.

Becchio isn't out of contract at the end of the season; It would've been 2014!

Reading Fc have not pulled out of a bid for Ince, they have instead increased the offer to 8 million after add ons. A 1.2 million bid for Nick Blackman has been accepted and he is expected to sign a 3.5 year deal by tomorrow. The deal for Sunzu has unfortunately stalled due to differences of opinion as to when his contract ended/ends at his current/former club, it's now more likely that this deal will happen either in the summer or after the jan window closes if his club can agree that he is actually out of contract rather than the other 4 years that they believe he is signed for. Odd. There was never an interest in Curtis Davies, we were only linked to him as we are one of the relegation clubs at the moment and he is a relegation premier league player. Despite interest from Leeds Gorkss will not be allowed to leave until the summer as McD doesn't want to reduce the squad to having just 3 main centre backs, however this may change after the jan window if we get a decent defender in on a free and send gorkss out on loan.

Why would ince join reading he want prem football he will be back in the championship in a few months time doesn't make sense

If nothing else, it will give him chance to experience regular first team football in the Premiership; he is untried and untested at the top level so what better way of making a name for himself by being part of one of the struggling teams. He will either become a God at MadStad and not leave, or if Reading do go down (and let's face it, I would not put money on it right now looking at the way Villa and Wigan are dropping points, and Reading gaining them) then at least he will know if he is up to it or not, and will have made a bit of cash in the meantime. Good luck to him. I think Reading would be a good choice imho.

To the person who thinks that reading will go down. This is a rumour website and not a slag off reading website. So if you don't have a rumour, don't bother posting anything.

any bristol city transfer news in or out.



30 Jan 2013 08:41:45
Danny Graham to assess options after deciding Sunderland isn't the move for him, West Brom and Norwich reportedly the top candidates.

Probably something to do with getting booed when he came on last night. Still can see him in Red & White by Tomorrow night



30 Jan 2013 08:32:24
barnsley offer trials to brian howard, nathan miller and former reading midfeilder jay tabb

As Mcdermot said he would be looking for premier league experiance, I do not see where he would be going with this transfer other than an eye for the future

Jay tabb still plays for reading?

Think Reading have told him that he his
free to find another club, not in first team plans

Tabb told he can leave in the transfere window.

Brighton to sign well known premiership centre back on loan until end of season.looks as though they may keep hold of Mackail Smith and Bridcutt after all. Source close to club tells me there may also be one other signing before the deadline.

Kolo Toure, Paulo Ferreira?? in need of games

30 Jan 2013 15:27:05
Toure or Ferreira are a bit unrealistic...
More likely to get the standard of Titus Bramble or similar...
And before anyone tries to get clever I used Bramble as an example... Do please don't feel the need to tell me how frequently he plays

Brighton will get in a good CB before the end of the market that's for sure. Brighton's captain (Greer) who isn't very gifted is out for 3 weeks, and they have no one to replace him with as Lewis Dunk is in court at the moment for an incident last year.So they have no depth at full back.

30 Jan 2013 17:25:26
Brighton are high up in championship and have Wayne bridge on loan so can attract a good quality of player

Should of kept Elphick!

Take bramble over el abd at least he could head and pass a ball!

But Bramble has never been able to defend which is surely a pre-requisite for a defender??



30 Jan 2013 08:05:14
Paul Shcarner to re-join wigan on 6 month-loan deal. He wants premier league, he still lives the club, great oppertunity for him

Still lives at the club? No wonder he's finding it hard to settle in Germany with that commute...



30 Jan 2013 07:52:35
Norwich - becchio and Kamara definites. Total lack of ambition. If we get relegated its our own fault for not spending the money. Not Hughtons but the board. Hughton identified Hooper and Wolfswinkel and board did not back him!

If this does happen you have to ask where has all the money gone.
The money you get to stay up means we should be getting 2 class strikers shipping most of ours out and also getting Curtis davies offer barnett in px
I for one would be glad to see the back of Holt he's not upto it under CH tactics

Club is a total joke no chance of staying up with this shower of cack.... Rather keep Morison and jackson than waste money on rubbish like this.......

You don't know that yet, we will have to see who comes in, if you are correct in what you say then I think its because we don't have the money for these targets.

Four years ago we were 30 mill in debt this is apparently nearly cleared, and the moaning season ticket holders did at 20 increase over 18 game season to turn round and expect the club to risk it's future(Portsmouth) is rich. Hooper unproven Premier leauge scorer only worth 5million max and totally rediculous to think club would spend 8 million on one player.

30 Jan 2013 12:11:18
wow you people need to take a step back and realise how far we have come! chill out and back the club, they got us this far which was unthinkable even couple years back. we have no god given right to sign anyone, have you considered that maybe some of these players don't want to join? Now is not the time for panic. OTBC

"I for one would be glad to see the back of Holt he's not upto it under CH tactics"
You're right you are the one. Holt has been awesome this season. What you mean is I don't go to games and haven't seen his name on the score sheet as much therefore he's now awful. Holt is playing a different roll now, playing really well too.

Agree that Norwich are in freefall, but they will not go down. There are loads of teams in the equation more likely to go down - QPR, Villa, Wigan (my three favourites), Reading, Southampton, Newcastle and West Ham will all be below Norwich at the end of the season. This is a time of rebuilding and consolidation for you, and not a bad time to be a supporter. I would not like to be an Aston Vila supporter at the moment. Unable to defend set pieces, and dumped out of two cups both to lower league opposition, and now staring Championship football in the face, without the money to strengthen in the January transfer window.

I don't understand why we would want Kamara. he's 28, has a 1 in 3 ratio in a far poorer league and probably not better than what we already have. They should go after Redmond of Brum and Wolfswinkel

In 2010 Celtic signed a striker from Scunthorpe who was scoring in 1:2 games.

It doesn't sound exciting does it? He's upped his scoring rate since then because the SPL has some pretty weak sides in it.

Becchio's numbers this year are better than Hooper's were when Celtic signed him. The real question is which player is better value and which player is most likely to score goals for Norwich?

The numbers actually say Becchio. That is moneyball. It isn't about names and reputations it is about numbers and results. This moneyball thing is scary if you play FIFA13. The irony is that If you say it is wrong for us to sign Becchio then you must also be saying that it was wrong of Celtic to sign Hooper in 2010.

The decison to go with Becchio over Hooper if it comes to this may be the ballsyiest thing the Board has done and may in fact represent a real evidence of their commitment to being objective and systematic about who we sign. If they are wrong we go down. If they are right it might spell an end to clubs paying over the odds for players due to their reputations alone. If we sign Becchio it won't be a weak decison it will be a strong decision.

Kamara has a 1:3 ratio playing in a lesser league with lesser team mates. Give him a chance to utilise Snoddy, Wes and Pilk's creativity. He will get on the end of crosses and score more often than not! Trust me!

I agree kamara's goal ratio isn't hot. But he also had nine assists last season. Contributing to 20 goals.. Let's give the lad a chance.

Think we need a little perspective. Agree it would be good to sign 8million strikers (if they're actually worth that much) but in reality we were nearly bankrupt 3 years ago. Financially guaranteeing premiership football next year is worth more than the fee but spending that level of doesn't guarantee anything. Obviously need to improve our strikers Morison, Kane and Jackson not really good enough - are becchio

And if either Hooper or Van Wolfswinkel had been signed on the wages they are on and Norwich get relegated their salaries would be unsustainable in the championship.

Jadinek on his way out!

Jedinak is not leaving



30 Jan 2013 03:30:49
Gillingham midfield dynamo Charlie Allen is thought to be attracting the attention of Crystal Palace, who last week missed out in a bid to take his team mate, Jack Payne to Selhurst Park. With Payne joining Peterboro, Palace have instead turned their attention to Allen as they are impressed with his box-to-box running and technical ability. Charlie's father, boss Martin Allen, has given his blessing for his son to move to the Championship club, with personal terms now the only sticking point.

Yes they have been impressed with his recent performances warming the bench

Payne had a week's trial at Palace and was deemed not good enough. Which was why the swap deal with Wright never happened.

Nope wright decided to join Colchester so the deal went dead



30 Jan 2013 03:07:14
Southampton are poised to land Argentinian starlet Manuel Lanzini from River Plate, the 19 year old under 20 international will cost them around £4m

Hmm could be something in this rumour based on our new managers connections back in Argentina. (ok so I can't spell his name yet!) but also that he is an attacking midfielder which will suit our current & future style of play.



30 Jan 2013 02:56:20

29 Jan 2013 23:48:52
Crouchy heading to QPR to reunite with Harry, Mackie going the other way plus a few bob.

Crouch maybe going but not for sure though plus it will be a straight deal and Stoke don't want Mackie apart of it, just cash and then getting another striker in preferably before Crouch departs



29 Jan 2013 23:44:56

Tubbs on loan to Derby wants regular action

Tubbs? Matt Tubbs of League One Bournemouth wants regular football, so he is going to go a division above to find it? No. Tubbs is off to rejoin his mate Fatty Evans at Rotherham.



29 Jan 2013 23:30:44
Akos buszacky is set to sign for millwall tomorrow ( from agent)

Sounds likely. Did his contract get terminated by Portsmouth? Nothing was ever said. Barnsley might want him back too.

We only sign 'CROCKED HAS BEENS' i'm afraid! i'm 'WALL' till I die but these 'LOANS' are really testing my 'PATIENCE'! Can we please try a 'BUY' a decent CF B4 FRIDAY?? C'mon KJ people are really starting to lose 'TRUST'!



29 Jan 2013 23:29:38
Dieumerci Mbokani could be on his way to West Brom. He is keen to play with fellow countryman Youssouf Mulumbu.

Could be some truth to this, albion were interested in him back before he joined monaco

Yes definately linked with ashworth, foriegn and very cheap



29 Jan 2013 23:26:12
Leeds to sign Jay Bothroyd as a replacement for Luciano Becchio who's on his way to Norwich.

That would be a good sinning

Jay Bothroyd would NOT be a good "sinning". He's absoloutley garbage.



29 Jan 2013 23:14:12
Steven Gohouri is attracting interest from many Championship clubs Leeds are leading the chase



29 Jan 2013 23:13:34
Moussa Konate is to join Southampton

Interesting name to crop up but would seriously doubt this to be true. He was linked with West Ham & Newcastle but chose Russia to play in. We (Saints) have enough attacking options currently to not warrant another forward signing. Remember we still have Mayuka who has been relatively unused so far this campaign & I think the club would rather see a return in the form of goals for this investment before spending on another forward.

Apparently he hasn't settled there and wants to leave. Could be a great signing to bring out the best in Mayuka. It would give us a whole different dimension in attack. Lambert or J Rod with Ramirez behind, or a big strong striker in Konate and a very fast finisher alongside in Mayuka. Still, I doubt it will happen though.



29 Jan 2013 23:00:28
Stevenage will send out Bondz N'Gala and Patrick Agyemang on loan for the rest of the season with the pair becoming suprplus to requirements after the signings and performances of the pair.
