Dundee f.c.

looks like dundee f.c. are going back into administration soon as they are unable to pay back a massive loan to john bennett the director of dundee united who owns dens park . also it seems that they have not paid for any of the recent signings they have made and current owner melville will not put his hand in his own pocket to bail out the club , worrying times ahead at dens park .


Rumours around that Newcastle are set to bring in Marlon Harewood, Craig Cathcart and Junior Stanislas on loan when the loan window opens in 4 days, just what i've read.

Bad news for all Arsenal fans, part of the Adebayor deal is that Man City have the option to buy Van Persie for around 40m in either January or next Summer.

AW will then look to sign Henri Saivet ( Bordeax) and Andy Carrol ( Newcastle ) and possibly one established striker which will be Andy Johnson, whos injury stopped a bid for him this Summer

depending on Fab's performances this season he will then look to sell him to Barca next Summer for £10m+Iniesta/Xavi+Bojan or Messi in a straight swap, as these are the best deals he can offer Barca because his price will be skyhigh in another two seasons.

After posting a couple of rumors on here before and none being posted i hope this one does as its 100 percente certain to happen. we all no rafa isn't happy with the board because of transfer money issues and we all no the club is up for sale what i no is that my grandad plays darts proffesionly in spain and was at a tornament in madrid. the five star hotel he was staying in had a load of real madrid staff in it with all there tracksuits and he swears he saw there manager well hes getting old but if he says he saw him he saw him.then he says he sat down in the bar there and no other than rafa benitez walked in and was greated by a load of men in suits and they had a drink at the bar about 5 meters away from my grandad. im not sure why he was there and how long he was there as this was about 8 oclock spanish time and my grandads darts tornament was about to start so he had to go. me being a liverpool fan im starting to get worried what rafa wasdoing there could it be to do with a player for january ( unlickly ) or could it to do with rafa becoming the new real madrid manager ( hopefully not ) tick tac toe


I am ranegers through and through i would love to see rangers sign lucas neill but i see this not happening as we could not afford his wages he must have been on at least £50 grand a week ?? rangers at most would pay £25–30grand a week .
but maybe the chance of champions league football could be enticing for him . i rate the chance of this happening 3/10. rangers will neogotiate a deal for a player to come in on loan in january as all funds is getting kept for super ally taking over as manager to put his own stamp on team .

oops here we go 2 in a row


Have just been talking on the phone to my dad who works at one of the big banks in the USA, he says a £25m investment in Sheffield Wednesday is being finalised, apparently the main impression was made with the plans for Hillsborough.

This means the new contracts for Richard Wood and Tommy Spurr should get sorted soon and the Owls should be in a position to add players in the January transfer window if they are in the playoff hunt.

Just saying what i've heard.


Vladimír Weiss (Man City) to join Crystal Palace on loan when the Loan transfer window opens for Championship clubs on Tuesday. This is to keep fellow Slovak Pavel Jurco company


Burnley are tracking Chesterfield midfielder Jamie Lowry with a view to signing the youngster in January for 300k, and loaning him back to the Spireites for the remainder of this season.

Sandy Stewart the assistant manager at Burnley was present at the Burton Albion game recently where Lowry scored and put in another exciting performance.


Just a thought (yet to be confirmed by my sisters' boyfriends' uncles' nephews' girlfriends' brother!!!). . Arsenal I think need another centre back (along with def midfielder). Now that the window is closed, only free agents are available. Lucas Neill anyone??? I havent seen it mentioned on the rumours page, but putting 2 & 2 together, am I getting 4 or 5?

As an aussie I like neill, but as a gooner, not sure if he would be up to it – although he is better than senderos and silvestre. Comments anyone?


Walter smith to try and persuade lucas neil to join rangers as he is a free agent and will need cover for january when bougie is away to africa nations cup and he sees neil as an ideal replacement.



i can reveal the real reason why there have been no major spending at man united this summer. i have a close relative who works inside old trafford and they have told me what is going on. It is not because there is the threat of administration (obviously there would be no money spent at all if that was the case),it is because the club are going to use the Ronaldo cash to expand the South stand. This has previously not been done because of the existing rail way line behind the stand and the huge expense of having to buy more land and moving the lines. But now with UEFA considering new laws with clubs only being able to spend a percentage of football revenue on wages and transfer fees, the board feel they would put the club miles ahead of the rest of the Premiership with the extra seat revenue (OT would have a capacity of around 90,000 miles bigger than any rivals, and clubs like City would be unable to benefit greatly by their Sugar Sheik under the new laws). The club will announce these plans in the next six months, although some members of the board feel that building a new stadium with 100,000 capacity and selling Old Trafford and the surrounding grounds owned by the club to developers, together with the Ronaldo cash to fund part of the new stadium is an option to.

you heard it hear first BOLTY


Dundee United Chairman Steven Thompson and Manager Craig Levein had a massive falling out on Tuesday,after Levein refused to consider an approach from Ipswich Town for the Arab Midfielder Morgaro Gomis.Reports in Dundee suggest that Levein has become disillusioned with the board and has instructed his agent to let it be known around the clubs UK wide.


Expect arsenal to make a move for VDV in january

also next summer expect so see ronaldinho and beckham in arsenal shirts

also Frencisco Ochoa to be almunia replacment


Michael Owen done hamstring in at Carrington yesterday.


And so we move onto January rumours. I'll go through this step by step, so its clear for all fans to see:
Rafa has a strong belief in his keepers. Pepe is the best in the world, Cavalieri is highly rated by Pepe while Gulacsi is hihly rated by Pepe, Rafa and Valero (GK Coach) rates him. Itandke's loan deal has a fee in it which will allow Kavala to sign him for 500k at anytime.
The yanks are finished. Everyone knows it now. The club is up for slae at around £400m and DIC want to take over. The deal should hopefully be done at around late November, so the new board can get to know the staff and players well, and discuss January's budget. Anyway, Insua is developing nicely while Aurelio has finally settled in. Dossena is now surplus to requirements, hence the business done around him this summer. Deals are still ongiong of course, but cannot go through until January. £7m is the fee but Rafa will settle for £5m. Kyrgiakos was brought in to replace Hyypia, but noly until January. After that he'll become the new 5th choice defender with Shawcross arriving should we get bough out. Unfortunately the fee will rise to £10–12m by then. Johnson and Degen are the Rb's for the season, but Phillip has the season to prove he's LFC quality, otherwise he'll leave for around £2–3m and Darby will be called up. Kelly to go on loan to Watford soon.
A 4–5–1 formation will be adopted for the final time this season. As it stands, the CM's are Plessis, Lucas, Masch and Aquilani. Aquilani now has a lot of pressure on him thanks to Lucas. Unfortunately Rafa rates Lucas and will be staying. The LM's are Riera and Babel until January, where Babel will leave for Ajax or Arsenal on loan unless he can perform a miracle and start playing. When he fails to do so, David Silva will join for £20m should we have been bought out. If not we have to settle for Alex Perez of Albacete for £4m. The right wing as it stands is Kuyt and Benayoun. Rafa sees no need to make changes there so to the AM, where we see Gerrard and Spearing. Rafa wanted money provided to bring in someone who could fill this void, which was Steven Defour for £8m. However, the yanks intervened again and now spearing is a club player. Bolton fans can feel aggrieved by this too, because should Defour have joined then Newcatle were willing to let Nolan join for £6m and Spearing would've gone on loan. Should we get taken over, this will go through as planned.
As it stands we have Torres up front with Voronin and N'Gog as his deputies. Rafa knows N'Gog isn't up to it yet and Voronin hasn't been performing so he's got the season to reproduce the same form that saw him in high demand for Hertha, otherwise he's gone next summer for £4m. The 4–5–1 will be scrapped next season and the 4–4–2 will be brought in. The big signing will be Aguero in the summer for £25m + Babel (hence why he's on loan until then)and should Voronin leave then he will go as I said for £4m or in a swap deal with Bordeaux, seeing Cavenaghi come the other way. LFC will also have to cough up £8m. This is why Bordeaux want £12m for Chamakx, coz we've paid £2m to have Cavenaghi as first choice. When this happens then Gerrard and Mascherano will be the new CM with Lucas and Defour as their deputies. Plessis is off for around £4m. Aquilani will be pushed out to the right while Benayoun is his deputy, and the left mid will stay the same. Kuyt will become a 2nd choice striker with Cavenaghi.
