03 Nov 2011 20:42:25
Leicester City F.C have appointed the new manager, Martin O'Neill. Kept very secret, announcement to be made officially tomorrow.(21)(30)"Kept very secret".....and yet you claim you know! Are you a fly on the wall? You need swatting!Put your swatter away Roy it's not his fault Martin got the job over you xBreaking news! Tomorrow at 8am Martin o'neill back at Leicester city 3 year deal signed! Here we come back to the big timeWell it's past 8 of the clock nothing has happend you can go back to sleep and dream onIf it has been kept very secret how the bloody hell do you knowThe "NEW" gaffer must have wanted a lay-in this morning, announcemnt at 3pm (fri) thats prob guna be moved back aswell due to an afternoon nap. Does anyone actually want this job..????I don't claim to know exactly when it will be announced but let me tell you - IT IS HAPPENING at somepoint this weekend - I think he'll be helicoptered in with the match ball before Sunday's game versus Leeds.Oh sweet jebus it gets worse! I'd sooner spend my time arguing the toss with the soton fans, because at least those boys understand football! MON to be choppered in with the match ball - he's not SantaAlmost right - it is going to be Martin O'Neill and its true that he will be unveiled as the new boss but instead of arriving in a helicopter he will be at the top of a pyramid in a motor-cycle display team, producing the match-ball from underneath his crash-helmet.

Martin O'Neill in talks with Leicester City about becoming their new manager for a second term in charge at the club. He is seeking certain assurances and needing to agree personal terms before he will committ to taking the job.(19)(25)


03 Nov 2011 18:42:34
Watford could see a ghost from the past, with talk of Gifton Noel-Williams returning to Vicarage Road from Major League Soccer.(5)(17)


03 Nov 2011 17:25:21
Let's face it, whoever goes there will be out of work at the end of the season when promotion not achieved. That's why they will not get the best manager for the job.So what is the big news?If thats true then its a shocking appointment,he hasnt achieved anything anywhere hes been,a club the size of the foxes need an expeienced manager,very poor signing,It doesn't seem to be hitting Sky Sports very quickly . . . it couldn't just be more poop could it?Even bigger news keane not leicester manager,numbskullAaaand the sheep fall for some numbskulls wet dream appointment, well done. As for "he's not acheived anything anywhere he's been" - taking Sunderland from 23rd in the Championship to the Premier League in one season doesn't count then i take it?Couldn't keep it up though. Sven had many successes, but not recentHe did some serious damage with money to spend at Ipswich. I hope you like terrible quality football and enjoy being reffered to as Roy Keane's Leicester City by all the media.


03 Nov 2011 16:19:46
Leicester: Roy Keane is now the favourite to be appointed Leicester manager, after Lee Clark ruled himself out of the running.

Chris Coleman, Ian Dowie, Peter Reid and Steve Maclaren are the other names on the clubs shortlist.

Keane wants reassurances over the amount of money available to spend. Although £10 million has been mentioned, this is likely to be only £3-4 million to spend on fees, the rest being used for agents fees, signing on fees and wages.

If Keane says "no", the Foxes will engage with Coleman, Dowie, Reid and Maclaren(10)(26)I can't see any of those mentioned here getting the job . . . can't you start a more exciting rumour?There is no official shortlist! The owners want a manager with a proven record in the Championship and is a big name. None of the 4 you mention is either of those 2.Peter Reid isn't a "big name"? Dime bar.

Reid, Coleman and Maclaren ARE big names.

What you really mean is: you dont want them.

DurReid did well at erm jebus got think about that' coleman nah prefer his mustard to be honest'and as for shhhhhtve thought he did very well at florist shame he left but we are aiming higher we have loads of money for martin dur


03 Nov 2011 15:42:49
Liverpool to sign Adam Johnson (18m) and Gary Cahill (15m) in January! They will also offload a few youngsters on loan to Bolton as part of the deal for Cahill :)(20)(30)Cahill will have 6 months left on his contract... they aint as dumb as u to do dat!Same old scouse dreamer.Why would we pay 15 Milion for Cahill? His contract expires on the Summer. He will go for a couple of million at Christmas or free in the SummerSeems mafe up why sign Johnson when you have Downing? they both play left wing


03 Nov 2011 14:50:26
Just heard Dennis Wise with is wobbly eyes will replace Simon Grayson before Jan - Hope this is not true(12)(26)Lets hope so they deserve each other dirty denis for dirty leedsTalking out of your bm again !!Wise got sacked by Leeds won't be offered the job againDirty denis for dirty leeds a match made in heavenDennis could not replace Larry Grason let alone Simon.


03 Nov 2011 14:49:40
jamaine becford on lone to brentford(12)(55)Did you know that you have only spelt three words,out of a six word statement,correctly?Should have stayed at Leeds, been she at Everton & Leicester so far, long may this continue. The grass is not always greener


03 Nov 2011 14:10:08
lee clark rules out move to leicester , bbc leeds(34)(9)This is fantastic new for all town fans, I am so pleased that Lee Clark is prepared to see the job through. Lets all now get behind him and all the players to get back where we belong in the championship.Its fantastic news for all leicester fans as well, now we might get a proven managerLol Leicester would have been lucky to get one of the, no scratch that the best young manager in the country. And no, I am not a Huds of Coventry or Derby or nottingham fan. Just plain fact.As i said earlier a proven manager is what leicester need not an up and coming oneIs it 3 seasons he's been trying for promotion? well next season will be the fourthForeign owners in the lower leagues want instant success, sack the manager when it doesn't happen, no stability. The next manager will be thinking when will I get the bullet when they lose a few games. No promotion this season, what's the odds of the new manager being sacked.Funny that he has left it so long before releasing this though! My guess is that Lee Clark has had confirmation that someone else is to be offered the job as he has obviously been happy to have been linked up until today ... expect an appointment soon! "Keane-NO Keane-NO!"Ruling himself out of a job he's not been asked to do, neat trick! Leicester confirmed yesterday that they had interviewed all free agent candidates over the weekend and that a new man will be in place before Leeds on Sunday. MON on Radio Leicester, refused to discuss the Leicester job "on or off the record" so he didn't say it would be him, but he didn't rule it out either, Leicester have done well to keep this under wraps.To the guy who said Lee Clark is the best young manager in the country ive got 1 name for you, Paul Lambert! I have great respect for Clark for the work he did at Norwich as assistant before leaving for a management role, but hes not yet in the same class as Lambert. The facts dont lie, Lamberts record at Norwich (Seasons 2 1/4 Played 111 Won 59 Drew 24 Lost 28 Win percentage 53.15% Back to back Promotions, currently 8th in the Prem)
Yes Clark has similar stats in regards to games, wins etc, but they are all in league 1 and there have been no promotions in the same period. his time will come, but at the moment hes got a lot to do to be mentioned in the same breath as Lambert.


03 Nov 2011 13:18:36

03 Nov 2011 11:33:18
Leeds to sign Almunia on a one month emergency loan deal until Lonergan is back.

Paul Rachubka will never play for Leeds again(39)(21)Leeds to sign Chris Weale on loanChris Weale? Does he play for Leicester City? Why would Grayson go for Chris Weale when he's looking for a 'keeper to play on Sunday, against.....Leciester!I thought West Ham got AlmuniaAlmunia's loan at WHU is up, he returned to ArsenalAlmunia is a good keeper should also try get sorensen from stoke. rachubka is ste dont no why he let kasper go should of kept him and got lonergan for cover for kasperDon't you mean Aluminium to put across the goal ? Oh I do like to be beside the seaside !Lonergan is better than SchmeichelNo i heard leeds have absolute faith in Rachuba, and are prepared to give him time to rediscover his form, its just a blip reallyI remember you were all so keen to get rid of schmeichel aswell. bet you wished you had sense now leeds fans


03 Nov 2011 10:51:30
Despite denials by club and manager i have been
told barnsley may look to one or two loan signings in
january also negotiating to extend drinkwaters
loan period
Source Club employee(17)(8)How is drinkwater doing not bin able to see much of him ?Drinkwater doing well hope we can keep
him till end of season or permanent if
possible would be a great addition to squadA lot depends on who leaves oakwell if butts or steele leave then there will be perm signings but if they dont then there will be more loan signings olso the club never said that there wouldnt be any loabn signings this year just there wouldnt be an over reliance on them like under robins


03 Nov 2011 10:02:54
Southampton have made a £300,000 bid for Bristol City's 22 year old defender James Wilson, who has impressed a number of Premier League scouts.(20)(19)How can they sign anyone? January is the transfer window so unless he goes on loan until then they cant buy him.You can bid for players now for januaryI think you would have to add a 0 to that figure before we would consider selling one of our best young players.You can buy whenever you want, but the transfer must take place in the window - understand?He'll be on his way to Saints,i'm a City fan
but at the minute we've got nothing and there's no reason he would want to stay.
Good luck to him if it comes off.I heard the same thing he played for city reserves against the saints and was very impressive according to an insider at the saints he is seen as sueplus at ashton gate in there dog fight against relegation as they want to bring in some experiance at the back


03 Nov 2011 10:01:00
Plymouth boss Carl Fletcher will sign striker Greg Pearson on the 1st of January from League 2 rivals Burton Albion.(5)(14)


03 Nov 2011 09:59:55
Leicester are set to papoint Neil Lennon as manager after a compensation bid for the Celtic boss was agreed late last night. Lennon has told the Leicester board that he would like his first signing to be Bobby Zamora from Fulham. Zamora is keen to leave Craven Cottage after falling out with manager Martin Jol. It is unknown whether the England striker would drop down a division but sees the future at Leicester brighter then the London side.(15)(41)What load of carp full stopSo much speculation around about who the next Leicester manager is going to be but Lennon doesn't fit the bill of having someone who is 'proven at Championship level' as stated by the boardThe leicester strikers are good enough dont need anyone else.The spl isn't even league one levelYes its not league one level,its a lot better,and lennon will leave when he gets sacked,he is a numpty...a red pill for you tonight i think, and no pointy objects


03 Nov 2011 09:56:33
Portsmouth are set to appoint Lee Bradbury as their new manager from Bournemouth. Bradbury's first signing will be 18 yeard old striker Jared Sims. Sims has interested Premier League teams but Pompey look set to bag the teenager.(3)(24)That's just wishful thinking.


03 Nov 2011 09:51:28
brentford are hoping they get jason roberts on loan and beavon from wycome andmark garella the other way to wycome(4)(18)


03 Nov 2011 09:41:52
Swansea City have targeted four attackers to join in January with Bredan Rodgers conceding 'other teams will sign strikers so they will need to aswell'. Johnny Russell of Dundee United is interesting the City boss and could link up in Wales if they manage to agree a fee, which is expected to be around £2 million. Manolo Gabbiadini is interesting Rodgers and currently plays for Italian top flight side Atalanta. The striker is only 19 and a loan with a view to a permanent deal is likely with a £5 million signature probable in the summer. Apostolos Vellios of Everton, who hasn't played much since joining the Merseyside club, will join Swansea on loan until the end of the season as David Moyes looks to loan the Greek out so he can get more first team experience in the Premier League. Finally, the last striker on Rodgers' radar is Jon Walters of Stoke. City boss Tony Pulis does not want Walters to leave but if Swansea can come up with a fee around £10 million, the attacker may well move to Wales, if personal terms can be agreed.(5)(19)More moyes magic he just cant stand strikers!!!!!!! {Ed025's Note - thats why our motto begins with.... NILLol, Swansea most certainly do not have 10 million to spend on John Walters in January, or anyone else for that matter. Hes not worth close to that, and you couldnt afford it, stupid rumour.As a Swansea fan they won't spend big in January as the chairman is running a tight ship and possibly there's no need to spend big just make some shrewd signing instead. It would be a dream to be able to spend 10 million on a player but certainty not Jon Walters even though I do rate him.


03 Nov 2011 09:24:45
Manchester united to buy gaitan(6)(24)Good call on man utd website playing it down and money could be issue 40 mil is being said what a joke


03 Nov 2011 09:06:37
Portsmouth are keen to make an approach for Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman.(5)(28)


03 Nov 2011 08:58:58
Tottenham and Inter Milan have both enquired about the possibility of taking Liverpool midfielder Lucas to their respective club.(4)(25)Spurs are looking at Lucas Moura da Silva of Sao Paulo not Liverpool's LucasI think youll find its the one from liverpoolActually, I think you will find it is the one from Sao Paulo.

Both Inter and Spurs have enquired about himIt's the wonderkid from Sao Paulo not the dodgy misfit from Liverpool.Why would Spurs want Liverpool's Lucas? They've got Parker, Sandro and Huddleston who are ALL better players than Lucas. It'll be the Sao Paulo Kid.

KROFrom Liverpool ha I think you might have that one a little wrong.Psht about thema ll being better than him.... lucas is the best dm in the prem atm!


03 Nov 2011 06:43:24
Steve Coppell to take over as manager of Portsmouth FC. Coppell was at Crystal Palace watching Pompey and then had a meeting at Fratton Park yesterday with the owners and David Lampitt (CEO). This was confirmed by Sam Matterface on talksport last night. Coppell has been told what funds are available in Januray for transfers and he is excited about working with a big club with a decent amount of talent in the squad.(20)(16)Good luck. We're still recovering from the Steve Coppell debacle with the likes of Nicky Hunt stuck in the reserves on massive wages.Big club,decent amount of talent?Coppell makes his 89th comeback eh, i give it three weeks before he bottles it and runs off again.


03 Nov 2011 06:29:10
Steve Coppell will be named Portsmouth manager today, he will be give funds to get them promoted this season(15)(19)Thats if he does not quit after 5 minits.Promoted this season cant see it haDecent track record and with a reasonable amount of money in Jan, could well get Pompey to the Play offs


03 Nov 2011 06:21:57
Rumour has it that Damien Comolli was spotted in attendance at the Ajax CL match today to scout Lorenzo Ebecilio, who is valued for the possibility to bring wing speed to Anfield.(5)(5)Wing Speed? That's a drain clearance company isn't it?What to replace Downing!


02 Nov 2011 22:31:07
Gary Johnson will be returning to Yeovil Town as manager with Skiverton becomig No2. Northampton have agreed to allow Johnson to leave and have an immediate replacement.(15)(9)Unbelievable but hopefuly!This is true.
He will be having discussions regards taking the job on Sunday.
Northampton have lined up dennis wise to take over.


02 Nov 2011 22:09:28
Norwich to sign Coates on loan from Liverpool in January to tighten defence(8)(12)Is that good old Ralph Coates?We already have 2 loan players in the squad can't have any more


02 Nov 2011 21:07:36
I just want to say this to all the Southend supporters who are still sceptical about the possible departure of Sturrock, we want a fresh start with Carl Fletcher and have no interest in having Sturrock as any part of the club,

Good luck Southend hopefully be seeing you in League 1 next season.(10)(4)


02 Nov 2011 19:45:37
Notts Forest interested in signing Wrexham utility player Nat Knight Percival in the January window, teams such as Tranmere, Peterborough and Preston also interested(6)(14)


02 Nov 2011 19:09:00
a source within the club has told me that lee clark will sign a new improved 5 year contract at huddersfield friday morning..and they will be a press conference at the galpharm friday 12noon(12)(15)Nobody gets 5 year contracts unless your Fergie or Arsene press conference is probably to tell you why he signed for LeicesterHope so,he doesnt seem to be everyones cuppa tea down at the galpharm,but with the run the lads are on,he must be doing something right and i will be down there saturday cheering them on.U.T.T.This smacks of a desperate fan making stuff up. 5yr deal? yeah rightThis 5yr contract thing is probably a load of crap, lee clark is on a rolling cotract as i understand it, maybe the terms of that mite have been improved. only time will tell300k pay off agreed with LCFCHo dear, sorry LCFC but u can keep ya 300k, just pocket money to TOWN. CLARK has said he staying wi us, so jog on


02 Nov 2011 18:32:21

Contract talks with Grant Hall Ferdinand and Barker will start soon.(7)(9)


02 Nov 2011 16:51:54
Just back from the newbridge pub in compton. Big rumours that Sunday may well be MMs last game at Wolves.

Steve Morgan has spoken to MM about relieving him of his duties if we dont win and has already sounded out Mark Hughes and O Neil (Leicester are also intereste in both)

If he cant get the 2 big name targets Steve Morgan will try and get Rafa Benitez back to England or try and tempt Gus Poyet from Brighton.

If we win on Sunday MM has until christmas to pull Wolves' fortunes around or he will be gone.(15)(12)Iv herd similar to this in the last week. Shame bt Mick has taken us asfar as he cn imo.I hope wigan win come on wigan from a wolves fan saying this but time for mm to goIan Dowie is in the frame for MM,s job.Does your gaffer discuss all his future plans down the boozer or to employees at the molinuex ?McClaren to get job!!Steve Morgan will have to have shallow pockets if Martin O gets the job and Im not sure he would be prepared to spend big money. So in Jan it will be loan deals. I have to say I think MM has done a good job even though I am in a minority. Are we punching above our weight. How many of our players would get in other starting 11s in prem .Maclaren will not get the job we want martin come on wigan come on wiganIt's McClaren!! ;-)Whoever told you this at the pub in compton has v.good sources - this is a huge game for McCarthy - I am surprised more people have not picked up on the lack of support from MorganRight fOr a start why dont you all jog on down to tescos or bloxwich aka Walsall who would want there team to lose perfectic I'm no mm fan but I would never want my team to lose against anyone nor would anyone else we don't need fans like you I'm willing to give him a few more chances to prove me wrong

Why do we want o'neil who walk out on clubs all the time there's no one else out there who's good enough to lead usThe newbridge pub isnt in compton! any of those would be good apart from mcclarenI'll bet a month's pension that Mick will still be there at the season's end unless he resigns. The Board will stick with him and he deserves our support for all he has done for the club from top to bottom.


02 Nov 2011 16:24:42
Liverpool's talent scout Damien Camolli has suggested that the club are willing to sign Tom Huddlestone from tottenham in the January transfer window, looks likely as he had to contend with the likes of modric when he recovers from an ankle operation.(12)(8)Ha ha thats how much you know.....what you have read! I think Liverpool would be last on his wish-list.Dream on harry thinks the world of himNot going to happen, for sure Tom will have to fight for his place when he's over his op and fit again but harry loves him and we need 4 top quality CM's over the seasonWhile I agree that he has to fight for his place and might want out, can't see spurs selling him to pool when they are top 4 rivals


02 Nov 2011 15:05:06
AFC Bournemouth to re-sgin Josh Mcquoid on loan from millwall in the nexttransfer window(13)(5)Where did u hear thatWhy not on loan now? The emergency loan window's open 'til 31st November. DO YOUR RESEARCH FAIST BEFORE POSTING!Don't talk carp!! why would he want to drop down a league?


02 Nov 2011 14:20:27
Martin O'Neill ready to take charge at Molineux if Wolves lose to Wigan on Saturday. Deal is in place and transfer budget arranged for Jan. Watch this space. This is a done deal.(16)(30)O'Neill is top draw! .. Wolves will not replace MM.
O'Neill will be after the Spurs job if HR leaves for the England job anyway.Oneill is only good when he can spend money,that means wolves a no go,MON took leicester to the top 10 0f the prem with no money so not sure where you have plucked that from pal.MON spend 280m in 3 years at Villa Park!
He only got Villa to 6th!LOL get your facts right mate, he spent 120mil in 4 years, recouping 39mil from sales, leaving a nett loss of 81 mil during his time there. Nothing like the 93 mil per season you are suggesting, that's Man City territory!


02 Nov 2011 14:09:23
Marc Antione-Fortune to join Doncaster on loan. Roman Bednar also expected either to be loaned out to a championship club or sold in Jan.

Young American keeper Bill Hamid is on trial with the Baggies, may move on permanent if he impresses!(14)(8)Roman bednar may join west ham on a 1 month loan to help sort ingery problems


02 Nov 2011 13:02:43

02 Nov 2011 12:50:41
rumors are that swansea city are going to sign jordan rhodes in january and a possible move for fabio borini , and andrew johnson could be tempted to a move to swansea city for regular first team action and simon cox could be loaned out to swansea aswell

wouldent be suprised if these signings happen as brendan rodgers wants to strengthen the squad

who are we jack army !(9)(19)Up until you mentioned adam johnson there was some credability to your postWhy dos everyone keep saying Simon Cox is going on loan here, there and everywhere? He's staying at The HawthornsIf u think u r guna sign jordan rhodes i hope u`ve got plenty of money.LOL, you think you are going to sign 4 strikers to add to the ones you already have and then mention getting more first team action? You play 1 up front usually so how are you going to accomodate all those?


02 Nov 2011 12:44:08
Iain Dowie has been seen driving away from the King Power Stadium.(8)(29)Thank christ for thatAs long as he was driving awayAway being the operative wordNot exactly a major surprise, the club have said that they have now talked to all interested free agent managers.This could well be true - hopefully he now has directions for wherever it was he was supposed to be goingMust be lost as he,s definately lost when it comes to managing a football club!Better to drive away now than be appointed . . . then drive away sacked in 3 months!!!


02 Nov 2011 11:00:31
Mike Ashley is finalising the sale of Newcastle to an Indian businessman who spent many years in the UK and is a lifelong Newcastle fan. The deal should be finished within the next 5-6 days and rumours of an extension of St James and squad improvements are rife. The sale would have gone ahead last year but with the unrest within the club and the fan's reaction to events Ashley was told to get his house in order before a sale could be made.(11)(34)

im a aldershot toen supporter and the big rumor is deano has left his post to become the manager of pompey .... obviously i hope its not true because he is the god of our team ... has anyone else heard anything ??(2)(15)Im a Pompey fan and that's the 1st i've heard of a link with Holdsworth. Mmaybe he'd be an good assistant at Championship level (no offence) but he wouldn't be manager. Doesn't fit the criteria the CEO has for the next PFC boss.Don't worry yourself mate. Deano isn't going to Fratton Park.


02 Nov 2011 10:54:31
simeon jackson considering loan move for coventry city, along with chris eccleston.(13)(10)Is that is Chris Eccleston that use to be Dr Who? Or do you mean Nathan (Liverpool naughty boy striker), who's on loan at Rotherham? Do ur research b4 posting next time sonny!Nathan Eccleston is actualy on loan at charlton athletic. so think u need to do some better research sonny jim!Think both of you should do better research, he is on loan at rochdale.We are both wrong, but at least i got the initial right! He is on loan at Rochdale.Bloody scousers, on there web site it says he his currently on loan at charlton. he is there player & even they dont know where he is. lol u rite he now at rochdale, not a bad player, just abit of a sulker, only young thoughWhy have players like them? There no better than what we,ve got"Nathan Eccleston is actualy on loan at charlton athletic" last season, not now.


02 Nov 2011 07:59:34
Martin o' Neil has been seen with steve Morgan... You heard it first here..(19)(23)I hope to god this story is trueAre they an "item" then?I hope so as well fingers crossedEven thought he as always stated he will never take a job while there is a manager in place. for example grant at west hamBut IF (and that is a massive IF)MM is sacked that will leave WWFC with out a manager.Steve Morgan said had Wolves of been relegated MM still would have been in a job.COYWI hope my fingers are crossed as wellThey are only just friends.It is true but SM hasn't talked to him about the Wolves FC job. The fact is that SM's company, Redrow, are short of bricklayers and as M O'N is Irish he thought he'd offer him a job on the new house build site in Compton.


02 Nov 2011 07:29:25
All you "Sturrock leaving Southend going back to Plymouth" rumours.

Looks like you are wrong.

Best of luck Plymouth(9)(15)Yeah right ! pathetic rumour fletcher installed player/manager,got any actual news ?.


02 Nov 2011 07:09:37
Tottenham have been scouting German u-21 striker Pierre- michele lasogga of hertha Berlin, They have also had cb James Chester of hull watched recently(1)(1)Man u hold buy back on Chester it is believed to be same one as is on sharwcross that if a offer is made Man u can pay a single pound more for the player if they want to , this is a deal that runs for the length of the contract signed by the player meaning if Chester was signed from man u on a 4 year deal then man u will be able to hold that deal for the 4 years it is then void if he signs a new deal after his first deal has run out


02 Nov 2011 00:19:40
Sean o Driscoll was at Nottingham forest vs reading last night and will be appointed Portsmouth manager very soon as forest are portsmouths opponents this weekend(9)(14)Sean O Driscoll was at Leeds on Sunday and will be appointed Leicester manager very soon as Leeds are Leicesters next opponentsI think O'Driscoll is freelancing as a scout for someone. He was at Ashton Gate recently when we had no manager but was not in the frame for the job. I think he is scouting, which is why he is being seen at a lot of places


01 Nov 2011 19:32:50
My cousin does some ground crew contracting at Goodison and often gets beers with the higher ups of Everton. The big news is that the Toffees are eagerly coveting Bate Borisov attacking midfielder Renan Bressan. This fellow is a dynamo!(7)(19)Strangely, when one starts typing in his name in a google search it DOES default to "renan bressan everton". But none of the links really say anything about him heading there. Hmmm.... Are you onto something or not?Dave Moyes was at the Barnsley Hull game yesterday....possibly James Chester if he needs a centre half?

Champions league pal, something that'll be a dim & distance memory for Celtic.I dont think he wood cost that much am sure man utd wood cover most of his wages but to be honest i dont think hes that good a player

so saints vs peterborough tonight , is the red and white army gonna get another win , of course they r , how long can this go on for , the whole season i hope , all this talk about billy sharpe coming , do we want him , i would rather have n.maynard , what is gonna be the score tonight i reckon 6-0 OR 6-2 RED ARMY(8)(14)From one saint to another - lets be confident but not complacent.....Posh cannot be taken for granted, they are another free scoring side under fergy...High scoring game for sure. COYR@ the above comment , haDon't count your chickens before they're hatched,over confidence can be dangerous.A narrow win against 10 men, not quite as emphatic as you thought. Also, don't get too carried away just yet, you look a good side but then so did Brighton early in the season. There is a long way to go yet.There's only one team that will win the championship this season and it aint southampton. Birmingham under chris houghton are the ones to beat boys, southampton might, just might nick second but I think others from the pack will emerge and they are more likely to end up in the play off'sThere's only one team that will win the championship this season and it aint southampton.

What are you Mystic Meg, Why cant Saints win the league, i agree it was a below par performance last night but we still won, 5 points clear at the top of the league, Scoring lots of goals form all over the pitch not just our strikers. Just one more thing Birmignham under Chris Houghton the ones to beat allready done that 4-1 think before you post.Saints could win the league, but they won't, fact. {Ed025's Note - not a fact is possible..I agree, southampton are playing well atm and getting the rub of the green. Everything is going right for them they cant do nothing wrong, but in my eyes they have one team at the moment and thats the starting 11, maybe one or two on the bench but i think their 'luck' will run out soon, if they get any injuries i think they will most definatly know the difference when/if a couple of players get injured for example LAMBERT if he gets injured and is out for a month then they will struggle no doubt about it because he has scored half their goals on his own, I like southampton football club i have grown up all my life being surrounded by them (well, when their winning lol) but i think the owners will have to spend some money in the jan transfer window to get 'proper' strength in debth meaning experienced defenders and attackers not the youngsters that they are bringing through the academy they should be sent out on loan i think that is the way foward these days, get the kids out to league 1 or 2 teams and give them games and experience, then when you've called them back they are ready to fill in whenever needed...........A bench on Tuesday night including Cork (an U21 international) Connelly (a full international) and Steve de Ridder shows somne pretty good strength in depth! I do agree that we need a little more backup in the striking department, but then we are the top scorers in the division. It would be interesting to see how Guly and Connely worked together up top though if Lambert did get injured...33 goals sored in championship this season Lambert got 9, hardly half is it, this has got to be a pompey fan syaing this allot of them have trouble counting. I agree with you we do need to strenghthen up front which is what Adkins will do in January but to say we would struggle without Lambert is crap, we would miss Lallana more than Lambert, anyway has'nt most teams got star players and would struugle without them I.E Barcelona without Messi are no where near the team when with him, Real Madrid without Ronaldo, Man U without Rooney, Take Van Persie and his Goals away from Arsenal and they would be in the relagation places. One more thing how do you know we are getting the rub of the green do you watch us week in week out, we are playing some good neat and tidy footbal especially at home, i think some certain rival fans are jelous and hate to us doing so well.

Southampton have renewed there interest in Liam Fontaine he failed a medical there in the last transfer window but is now fully fit and he will move there in january(6)(10)Might happen if we can't get Jos Hooiveld Perminant. And if Jaïdi is in the first team picture.
But thought he failed because of chronic knee problems. So not sure what would have changed from the summer to now :/You wont get him, fonts is the anchor at the back and his performances since he came back from injury have been superb especially at west ham tuesday.. looks like mcinnes rates him highly himself unlike KM did so expect any bid to be rejected

Portsmouth to sign Bradley Wright Phillips from Chalton on loan until January when they will complete the permanant deal worth around 1.2 million, reliable source from within the club, also rumour is down here that 2 more loan signing will arrive before the international break. Also Sean O Driscoll will be named as Portsmouth new manager tomorrow.(13)(24)Aint get any money and sudddenly 1.2 million comes from nowhere i dnt think sooFirstly, your grammar and english is awful. Secondly, PFC has got money, new onwers have signed 9 players to date. They will continue to build in the next ransfer window. PUP.Before you comment do your home work first .pupPlease answer me one question: why on earth wud charlton LOAN portsmouth BRADLEY W-P until january wen he is scoring most of there goals at the moment, not saying a deal wont be dun in jan thougthPaul Benson's for sale, he's a better bet. He'll get plenty of goals for you in league1 next year.Charlton dont have to sell so why would they?Charlton are a bigger club than Portsmouth and we will be in the league above you next year, so why would he want to move?Just because Pompy have some money now does not mean that clubs will sell them their best assets. BWP is the leading goal scorer in League 1 with Charlton (not Chalton) currently occupying an automatic promotion place. Charlton had a takeover last year which means they do not have to sell, so why would they? 1.2m …… please only a club desperate to sell would let him go for that and Charlton are certainly not that anymore.This seems an unlikely transfer but ultimately money talks and although some say differently, Pompey do now have some money. Having said that would think if O'Driscol takes over, Billy Sharpe is much more likely to be the striking target.No way will Billy Sharpe leave Donny to go to Portsmouth, i am not saying that he wont leave, just cant see him going to Pompey, i am sure he will be hoping for a better club than them, he might as well stay with us as we will finish above Pompey this season. He is a quality striker and if he does leave he deserves a quality club.Donny to finish above Pompey...what ru on? Saunders is throwing loan players (poor ones at that...Diouf for 3 months!) at an already poor team and isn't even playing ur best player (Coppinger). Why wouldn't Sharp (if u do support Donny, get ur players spellings correct) come to Pompey and play for the manager that got the best out of him (S o'D)? Who knows we might nick Coppinger off u too. PUP.Why would any player like billy sharp want to go to a club no bigger than the team he is at now and only gets 12-000 fans at their games he's better going to that bigger club down the road that gets 26-000 fans and guess what there top of the league and we know they have got plenty of moneyPompey have been sucked in hole chewed up and spat out and recoverd only recently got new. owners with a bit of cash behind them and building a club from scratch starting with getting a new manager so watch this space they might be mid table this season but watch out for next and has anyone heard of chaltonNo old pal, never heard of chalton, they some none league side then, i have heard of a little club called charlton, but think they none league too..!


01 Nov 2011 14:40:24
emile heskey is believed to be on his way back to leicester as a result of martin o'neils likely appointment as manager, he is believed to want to take up a coach roll upon retirement(12)(25)Brilliant - except O'Neil isn't going to Leicester.Thought he had retired,well,from scoring goals that is.Has he said no then?^^ I very much doubt he has said yes.Can trap a ball further than I can kick itO'Neil hasn't said a thing. There were plenty of stories that he didn't want it but not one of them includes a single quote from the man himself, considering the story came from the Daily Mail that's no surprise. I can't see it being MON though but i'm fast getting to the point of not caring, get it sorted before Leeds!


01 Nov 2011 14:11:59
Plymouth Argyle to look at signing Steve Kabba in January along with another striker(7)(9)That will be Steve Brooker then.


01 Nov 2011 12:49:59
Swindon town are about to agree a settlement with Lucas Magera to leave the club, whilst he signed a 2 year deal at the club he is their highest earner, he wants first team football to try and make the euro 2012 squad, Di canio isn't impressed with his work rate and is trying to release the funds to make the Jervis signing permanent in January.

Timlin will not be sold to Southend and will come back to the club in Jan, as will Bodin, Clarke will not be returning and has attracted interest from 3 league 1 clubs.

Other players due to leave are esejas and Risser.(7)(9)Southend stand a great chance in extending his loan.

With the choie to making it permenant,Rumour has it Timlin didnt like the tough training set out by Paulo which is the reason he is out on loan and i cant see him coming back to STFC he nearly joined Southend in the summer as alot of his family support them and i would expect them to sign him permanently or extend his loan. As for Magera something is going on with him as he has hardly featured since he signed so could be true.What you will see is a lot of players leaving in January. Sir Martyn Arbib and Andrew Black are going to pull out if Swindon are not in the top 7 by the end of January or are too many points adrift of the automatic promotion slots.


01 Nov 2011 12:04:37
Southampton want experienced right back bradley orr from qpr on loan until january and then they will make a 500,000 pound bid for him(3)(16)Why would they need an experienced right back we already have Frazer Richardson (29) and danny Butterfield (31) both lots of experience and both have played this season and done very well, no need to strengthen that position, Ask the real Saints fans, the season ticket holders and most will say we need a central, defender Dan Seabourne still recovering from serious head injury and dealt will play again theis season. I think we also need to complete the permanant signing of Jos Hooiveld who has been very good and gets better each game and also a striker, we have scored lots of goals so far this season but most saints fans that i speak to would like to see an out and out striker, Lee Barnard is going to jail very soon and connolly has done well but can be sure he will stay fit for the whole season. COYRYh right back really not a problem tbh. If all goes wrong with Frazer and Dan we have Stephens to fill in as well as Cork.
Hopefully Jos to stay a Saint and a striker will be nice. But we are still top scorers in the division so not essentialWould love to see him back at BCFC


01 Nov 2011 10:35:59
I have it on good authority from within the club that Southampton will complete the loan signing of Billy Sharp after Saturdays game, during the international break. Also Nigel feels that the right back area needs strengthening and will look to complete the signing of Nathaniel Clyne from Palace in January.(8)(15)I doubt you have any sources and this is common knowledge. However I can;t see Palace signing one of there hottest prospect in January when they are going great guns at the moment. Sharpe Maybe, Clynne NoI'd be surprised if Billy Sharp goes anywhere just now after the death of his baby boy - I'm sure he has other things on his mind


01 Nov 2011 07:24:41
No it doesn't answer the Ipswich/Milwall debate - look at the league table(7)(8)


31 Oct 2011 23:22:15
Wrexham utility man Nat Knight-Percival is top of Tranmere Rovers managers wish list in January, when he is hoping to sign him for 100k including a loan deal for defender David Buchanan till May. Left-footer Knight-Percival who can play in defense, midfield and up front has impressed this season after moving to center back from his forward role last season.(1)(10)What?! Send Buchanan on loan to the Conference?! A player who is starting every single game and putting in quality performances week in week out?! Don't think so...


31 Oct 2011 22:27:41
avram grant turned down pompey job as they still haven't paid him from before(21)(22)Lool you sir are pretty funnyFrom what's been made public in the media, a lot of people never got paid from before.Yes true but now things have change everyone has been paid got new owners who knows what they are doing and they have a bit of money so please keep up to date pupThe new owners do not have money, every owner you have had, said they had money and look what happened. Every player signed has been loaned or a cast off.........The walls are crumbling still!!The only people who got paid in full was the previous Owner (Chanrai) as he was a tier one creditor (17m), other clubs they owed money too (condition of Football League) and the charities they 'forgot' to pay. Everyone else is getting paid in installments over the next 4.5 years including Mr Grant. A better vicious rumour would be Harry going back (and not having the 'medical procedure' which has stopped him travelling with Spurs to Europe but going down to agree a contract at Fratton Park)!! Now that would be really funny!!20p in the pound the cheeky pompey chavs paid, charities and schools. Still Gallent FA cup winners eh?


31 Oct 2011 22:14:34
Newcastle Utd are to loan misfit Nile Ranger to Doncaster until the end of the season, in a final 'sort your life out' deal. If Ranger messes up, he will be kicked out of Newcastle Utd.

The Geordies are also interested in Wycombe's Jordan Ibe, and are prepared to offer £250,000 for the young player tipped for a big future.(11)(13)Whats happened with the Smith nailed on for W.Ham stuff?Smith and ranger are being looked at by big sam but dont see ranger coming as hes diouf in the making so we might as well sign dioufIs this the same Jordan Ibe who is being tracked by United and Liverpool for several times your suggested price?


31 Oct 2011 22:10:56
doncasters mckay looking at bringing Gomes 2 donny till xmas as he wants first team football(5)(15)That's funny cos I fort dean Saunders for the gaffer there now lolGomes thinking.....hmm where do i go, Brazil or Doncaster? Make your own minds up!This rent a player scheme could seriously
backfire on us when all these talisman have
moved on to richer pastures the lads they
have replaced think why should i stay and
request to move on .Would/not blame them


31 Oct 2011 15:10:35
charlton to win title not huddersfield and sheff utd dont have a strong enough squad

sheff wed to go up aswell

charlton to sign jordan rhodes(14)(40)We will see and as for signing jordan rhodes not a prayer hes not leaving you couldnt afford him for 1 and dont think youve got 5 million to spend keep dreaming 41 unbeaten and countingWhy would huddersfield let us sign Rhodes? Ok the board may give Powell money but it wont be enough to sign RhodesTOWN up as CHAMPIONS. RHODES not going anywhere yet. Charlton shud concentrate on keeping hold of Bradley Wright-Phillips & forget about signing players they just cant afford41 and couning so what.have u forgot the playoffs. have a good look at the table and we ant at how best yet and money 2 spend in jan/Yes we hav forgot about the play-offs, so last season.! we are a club thats lookin forward, not dwellin on the dim & distant past. Is that really the best u can do..?If you aren't "dwelling in the past" then why keep mentioning this 41 game streak, which is, wait a minute...........the past!4 weeks tonight cant wait 2 shut you lot up.3 1 charlton and rhodes wont score morrison wiil eat him alive you lot are nothing.Huddersfield are not gonna win the title41 games is not the past its the present and hopefully the future, we are loud and proud of this fantastic run and long may it continue. Town will be champions we already have the squad in place now, don't need to add unless we get injuries to key players, if this happens we have the money to bring in quality replacements. Jordon Rhodes to ne top league 1 goalscorer.Sounding a bit jeleous of the mighty terriers recent good fortune. We are 41 unbeaten and damned proud of it too. Perhaps you should concentrate on keeping hold of Bradley Wright-Phillips as he'll be gone in January. UTTAs a neutral I believe both Charlton and Huddersfield will go up this year.As a Charlton man I believe there are 30 games still to be played and lots can happen so no one should be counting chickens. We are playing very well at the moment, enjoy it while it lasts.Lets hope the charlton defence mark RHODES really tight & ok if u want u can stop him from scoring, TOWN arnt a 1 man team, we got goals in us from all over the pitch, NOVAKS guna get ya, u hav been warned. !Get a grip you full!! Rhodes can probably have his pick of championship teams and possibly even bottom half premiership. Destined for better things than Charlton.Sence when hudders been a big club i fincknot your just i little club up north {Ed003's Note - I would check your football history books before making a statement like that}


31 Oct 2011 14:31:07
qpr are set to sign andy johnson from fulham on a two year deal apparently worth 2mil(23)(13)I would have thought QPR could go a bit further up market with the cash available and to repeat the potential to repeat the 40m payday the PL brings.

I would also say that Johnson would be worth substantially more money than that.Contract running low and he isn't a spring chicken, personally I dont want him but this is a rumour that wont dieAJ is worth alot more than that


31 Oct 2011 14:16:11
Emile Heksey is rumoured to be making a loan move to Doncaster Rovers as he hasnt found form this season.(5)(35)He'll suit Donny then as they haven't found form either!Heskey hasn't found form? he never had any!Was this Heskey rumour to throw everyone off the Diouf transfer?Is there any one old and slow doncarster dont want?


31 Oct 2011 14:14:28
Aldershot town want hometown boy joe ralls from cardiff city on loan for 3 month deal...Ralls is looking to gain more 1st team football(14)(5)


31 Oct 2011 13:56:53
QPR set to sign Sebastian Bassong from spurs on loan for the rest of the season in January and also want to sign Joe Ledley from Celtic and Nicky Maynard from Bristol City. Set to offload Helguson, Buzaky and Ephraim all to Southampton!(10)(31)Joe Ledley wont leave CelticBassong wants to come, Maynard is a new one on me, but no major shock, where you got Ledley from is probably your imaginationWhen Bassong wants to come, let me know.Hegulson, Buzaky and Ephraim not good enough for Saints COYRYeah , like he wouldnt leave Cardiff??


31 Oct 2011 13:48:12
Kane Ferdinand will sign for Scunthorpe
United in January.(5)(17)Dont think so matie Forest are after himHe isnt going anywhere.

From the person best to say - A southend united fan.Regardless of Ferdinand I see Scunny climbing the table very soon.


31 Oct 2011 13:43:52
Bryan Robson to be interviewed for Leicester job. He is believed to have been involved in the 'sale' of Leicester with his Far Eastern contacts and was actually approached and declined before Sven was appointed.(17)(27)Would that be the same Bryan Robson who WAS NOT involved in the sale of Leicester City and the same Bryan Robson who is still fighting Throat Cancer? Congratulations, you're an attention seeking pillock.No It's the Bryan Robson who announced he had beaten throat cancer in August this year (which was fantastic news). Oh and an attention seeker would normally give their name - for the attention - Pillock!Bryan robson another one who has never done anything. couldn't manage a p### up in a breweryBryan Robson, now that would be funny.


31 Oct 2011 13:30:38
Joe Partington, ( Bournemouth) seen at Swindon today with agents rep. Possible move in January.


Whilst Lee Bradbury is in charge of Bournemouth, Joe Partington will not be going anywhere unless it's on a loan deal as "Bradders" regards "Parts" as future captain potential(4)(12)


31 Oct 2011 12:28:02
nottingham forest keeping tabs on southend trio kane ferdinand,ryan hall and bilel moshni.

cotterill also weighing up a move for kadeem harris at wycombe recomended by k burt.(16)(10)It does not cost much to keep an eye on them. Losing 10 million a year I suppose that's all we will do.The three arent going anywhere.

Southed are not selling anyone.Southend will sell fact! money talks im afraid. say goodbye.Forest will wheel and deal in jan,these wont cost the world.Yes Moneys talks but no at the moment.

The club is top the league and will gain more from the keeping the two then selling.

They love the club and the fans and dont want to leave.

So take your newspaper soures and bug Crawley insted.


31 Oct 2011 11:43:28
Charlton boss Chris Powell has rejected an offer an interview with his former club Leicester City. The former Foxes coach has decided to stick with the table topping Addicks(8)(21)I would prefer baden powellIf any League one manager is being approached I think it will be Powell however, with the sort of cash they are talking about spending I don’t think they would entrust it to a comparative novice. Alan Curbishley was the most successful manager in England until recently (not with trophies but club development) I can’t understand why he is out of work. Leicester should take AC, he is capable of delivering promotion and adjustment to the PL no other names being banded about can match that.


31 Oct 2011 09:14:06
Manchester City and Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure is set to fly to Spain over the next few weeks to speak to Sevilla after the Spaniards had a £7 million bid accepted for the former Arsenal player. Toure is hopeful he can agree terms with the Seville club so a move can take place once the new year arrives.(18)(11)


31 Oct 2011 08:19:24
southampton,, west ham and leeds after stevenages craig reid(3)(27)Bound to go to leeds because their a propper big clubI dont even know why we (west ham) are even interested in going for these types of players IF this true we are a premiership club so theres no point in trying to sign these players, look who he plays for at the moment stevenage no disrespect but come on really? you are right there the guy above, im sure he will go to leeds because their a club without much ambition and are quite happy sitting 8th or so in the championship.Correct me if im wrong but the last time i looked west ham were playing in the championship(not premiershipIf Big sam doesnt get them up this season , they will be in the Championship for a while. Either way he will be sacked at the end of the season. So theres not really any motivation there is there?


31 Oct 2011 04:16:04
As unbelievable as this sounds check it out, I have a man on the inside at Goodison Park and David Moyes is about to leave by mutual consent. Will be announced either Wednesday or Thursday.

It is known that Sunderland have approached him to replace Steve Bruce, Everton's plan is to go to Southampton and try to entice Nigel Adkins which should be interesting as he is a lifetime Liverpool supporter.

This is gods honest truth and is going down now, people in the know are already putting serious money on at the bookies, Check the sites tomorrow I 100% guarentee you wont get odds on Moyes being next manager to leave a premiership club.(20)(20)Yet no newspaper or journalist or anyone else has said a thing. Wow, your friend in the know must be good at keeping secrets.Funny how this sort of rubbish is always going to be announced "in a day or two" isn't it? It's almost like someone is making it up... surely not?If moyes was going to leave aston villa would have been were we went months agoWhat a load of odds change at the bookies either!!


30 Oct 2011 23:12:03
William Sharp is set to join Southampton in the next few days on loan until January then he will sign a 2 1/2 year deal.
He visited Southampton today to discuss the move.

Absolute tosh, Billy Sharp didn't play for Rovers on saturday because 1 of his relatives have died. He wont be leaving Donny unless its Jan or the summer(18)(21)


30 Oct 2011 22:20:03
Reading to sign snodgrass for 2m and
jimmy kebe good reliable source(10)(27)Jimmy Kebe already plays for Reading , lol.Pure fantasy !
Leeds turned down 5M in the transfer window so why would we let him go for 2?
Also why would he want to move ?
Where do you get these fantasies fromWe know kebe plays for reading but the
post says reading will pay 2m plus kebe
for snodgrass
read the posts properlyCant see it happening. Only teams Snoddy would leave for are Prem teamsErm dont think so. Fact we turned down a bid of nearly 5m over the summer for snoddyPut a one in front of the 2m and you'd be about halfway there


30 Oct 2011 21:50:53
Leicester held talks with Mark Hughes today but NO decision has yet been made. Permission to speak to Lee Clark will be asked for tomorrow and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also on the radar. Billy Davies hasn't been spoken to yet but could also hold talks tomorrow. Martin O'Neill still hasn't officially said no as he is pleased with the wage offered, transfer budget, ambition and has not been told no to any of his potential transfer targets but he hasn't received the job security assurances he wanted which is stopping anything progressing. New man likely to be unveiled on Wednesday or Thursday but could be at Burnley game on Tuesday(23)(12)My guess is, its sparky


30 Oct 2011 21:44:44
Former Mk Dons striker Ali Gerba is set to join league one side Walsall on trial following his release by Montreal Impact this month(7)(6)


30 Oct 2011 20:54:46
expect mark hughes to be named new leicester city manager after the game on tuesday the deal has been done tonight, very solid source(6)(16)Well better than the likes of avram grant,ian dowie etc

Who will Mr Hughes bring in as big names ?You mean after you get demolished by Burnley ?Look at ian stringer (radio leicesters ) twitter page says that mark hughes is in talks with leicester.I do not think mon will be here so hughes looks like the best of the rest to me the sooner someone is chosen as the new manager the better for fans and clubI think Mark Huges would be a brilliant signing, he and Alan Curbishley are the only ones that make any sense for that job. Unless you could coax Gus Poyet of course!


30 Oct 2011 19:05:08
Mark Hughes at the leicester ground as we speak in talks solid source(11)(31)


30 Oct 2011 18:30:28
Burnley to sign Swindon attacking midfielder Matt Ritchie on loan with view to permanent agreement in January.(10)(16)Dont be sooooo stupid, we will loan out our best player when we are moving up the table towards promotion, what planet are you on...Ritchie is leaving in January. Heard from a source at the club today that Sir Martyn is considering withdrawing from the consortium as he is a) not convinced that Di Canio can get Swindon promoted and b) his health is not too good. Sir Martyn is a good friend of Andrew Fitton and was sad to see him forced out by the 'radical' Jeremy Wray.

Be warned Town fans - if you are not promoted, the club will go into meltdown. Expect things to become clearer after Christmas....This is what can sometimes make this site ridiculous beyond belief, if you had said they were going to make a 750k+ bid for him in jan, then maybe he would be sold, but loaning our best player to Burnley, Really, maybe if we swap him on loan for Austin.... yep not gonna happen either is it ! As for the comment about financial trouble, that is ministry of the bleedin obvious, all clubs need to be in higher leagues to earn more money, we are no different..... If Ritchie is sold in Jan it will not be for peanuts but for a bid that reflects his worth to us, then we can go and buy a decent forward..If Mr Arbib is that gutted about Fitton going, then why did he and the other backers appoint Wray as Chairman, dont be a muppetMaybe Sir Martyn didn't choose, but was PERSUADED too rather than risk turmoil in the Boardroom.

Now, who's the muppet?


30 Oct 2011 17:34:28
heard that a few spl sides are looking at signing pearson from derby(13)(7)Why would he want to come back up to scotland again he went down to england to play in the big league because he was to good in his words to play up in scotland is he not getting a game in the micky mouse league nowHe has been told he is free to go and there isnt much interest in him from english clubs


30 Oct 2011 17:30:02
Do you think there is a chance of Liverpool signing anyone in january and who? Thanks(14)(12) long as they are over 20 million
and totally over rated dopey dalgliesh will have em..hope that answers your question chap.Aquero, Hazard,Silva,Modric,Johnson, the sale of Suarez to Real Madrid will fund some of these, ok mate?Aguero silva modric ha.Mid season is not a good time to sign players, it's usually more expensive and less effective due to pre-season etc etc. Depends on the player though and likely competition for his signature.


30 Oct 2011 15:46:43
Portsmouth are keen to appoint former striker Lee Bradbury from Bournemouth. The Pompey board are wanting some passion installed at the club and see a former player the best way to go. Bradbury will sign a two and a half year deal.(5)(25)I'll drive him therePortsmouth have stated that they want a Manager with Championship experience so I would doubt that Lee would be on the list - especially with the alleged 40 applications they have received and some are known to have experience.


30 Oct 2011 15:45:27
Arsenal have identified defender Daniel Van Buyten from German giants Bayern Munich as their next target in January.(17)(19)

Tottenham are set to sell Roman Pavlyuchenko and Heurelho Gomes. Roman Pavlyuchenko has been subject of a £7 million bid from Arsenal after the Russian forward claimed he wanted to stay in London whilst Gomes, is already in talks with Italian side Fiorentina.(12)(15)Sorry mate load of tosh, gomes will almost definitely be going home and the same can be said of roman!I doubt very much that Roman will go to Arsenal as Wenger does not support the target man approach.

Update on the Leicester Manager search.

5 contenders still in the running...

1. Lee Clark
2. Martin O'neill
3. Billy Davies
4. Neil Lennon
5. Dave Jones(13)(29)Kevin Keegan And lee clarke will become manager/assistant togetherNo KK on the list then, though he was watching Leicester at Upton Park yest.
No Sparky neither, though he has had negotiations with representatives of the club!Wrong. Neil Lennon is not, and has never been considered. The Keegan Clark partnership was looking favourite until mark Hughes acknowledged his interest on Saturday evening. There was a meeting in London between Leicester and Hughes. Don't know the result of it tho.MO'N ruled himself out.Mon has never ruled himself out, all he said was he hadn't been approachedMon has ruled himself out because he said he is waiting for a perm job, so get your facts rightDo not take lennon he is doing a good job for rangers up in scotlandMON has NOT ruled himself out, nor does he need a Perm. Check the story that was started by that footballing hotbed, the Daily Fail again and you won't find a single quote from O'Neil. Dumbass

Pointless anyway, it's looking like it'll be Mark HughesLee clark has stated he is not goingThen lee clark also needs a dose of prune juice always keeps me regular

Southampton have identified three targets for the January transfer window.

Nicky Maynard, Ross Wallace and Nathaniel Clyne.

Also, Nigel Adkins wants to extend the loan of Jos Hooiveld until the end of the season with a view to a permanent transfer in the summer.(13)(12)Has this come from inside the club?
Where did you get this if this is genuine?Of course this hasnt come from inside the club, the clubs transfer policy is tied up tighter than a ducks ase. This is just some guy who wants 15 minutes of fame or an agent of these payers, trying to get a better deal for their client - they put it out there and it snowballs and gets more interest, meaning an increase in price.I heard in the summer that some sort of deal for Clyne had been close .... wonder if it'll happen?!Surely not a rumour about Maynard to S'ton never heard that before on here lol

wasnt that a dead cert before the august window came to an end as wellIn answer to point one no on both counts. A saints fan wish list.


30 Oct 2011 09:09:01
Liverpool are interested in signing Gary Cahill,Luuk de Jong,Gaston Ramirez and Eden Hazard who will without doubt be the hardest target to obtain. Maxi Rodriguez,DirK Kuyt,Martin Skrtel and a number of players currently on loan such as Alberto Aquilani,Joe Cole and Dani Pacheco are all thought to be surplus to requirements. {Ed025's Note - good luck with that..(7)(20)Ha enjoyed that. Think again!Ur deluded my friend u have no chanceGary Cahill ! LoL! one carthorse to replace another.


30 Oct 2011 00:48:14
Southend are looking at Carl Fletcher on loan.

The midfielder is fed up of life at Plymouth and will make the move in Janaury.

Sturrock feels he is the midfield engine the squad will miss if Timlin does not sign.(3)(24)I doubt it - He's just been appointed full time Player / Manager of Argyle this morning.....


29 Oct 2011 23:56:31
Well. That puts the millwall ipswich debate to bed then. James henry to ipswich? Yeah, why not?. He would fit in there.(1)(12)Yes Milwlall are the best team in the universe after beating our very poor team yesterday and I dare say are better than us at the moment. Im sure every town fan wishes they could exchange our Uefa cup, fa cup and champions of england trophies for those league 1 titles of yoursAs a regular viewer of this site and Town fan, I have to say the who’s bigger Millwall / Ipswich argument has been a massive bore on this site.
Ok we put a bid in for one of your players which was turned down unfortunately a small minority of Millwall fans on this site decided to take offence and puff there chests out saying how great your club is. Maybe it is, to you. Yes you beat our very poor side yesterday and maybe you are a better team at present. But please don’t think you history is anything on ours. We are a small club that was overachieved winning the UEFA CUP, FA CUP and have been champions of England and produced the best two English managers of all time and are the only English team never to lose at home in Europe in some 50 or more games. Your list of achievements stops with winning league 1 please take some perspective WERE BOTH SMALL CLUBS BUT WE HAVE A HISTORY!! put this to bed now and stick to TRANSFER RUMOURS only.

At the Celtic game today lots of fans saying, Gordon Strachen back to Celtic as he fells he can restore some pride and get Celtic back to winning the league again, as Neil Lennon will go to lester in the next few weeks due to having lost the dressing room(11)(8)Lennon will not go to LEICESTERStrachan passion dont make me laugh i have more passion in the end of my finger than that man hasYeah take starchan back, got us to last16 of champs league TWICE thats not a fluke, he could get the players at club playing like a team again.Lennons to stubborn commons issue has made him lose the dressing room, swallow ur pride lenny before is to late!

I Won't comment on Hall Or Ferdinand as I don't know and have heard nothing.

But what I have been told and genuinly so is that an offer from Plymouth has been on the table at Southend for a few weeks in regard to acquiring the services of Paul Sturrock and Graham Coughlan.

This was James Brent's idea to give Southend plenty of time to think over the offer and and for Blues to iron out compensation details with them and with Sturrock and Coughlan.

If they remain at Roots Hall this offer will be kept quiet from the media as much as possible. If they are heading back to Home Park expect it to happen quite soon.

All this was subject to the takeover being completed and it now has been.(2)(7)Well why would he leave the to be champions to go to the bottom of the League?

Get real.Why did Barry Fry leave when Blues were heading to the Prem to go to Brum who were fighting relegation? Why Thompson leave in the second tier to go to a team a division below?As I have said before..

What does the past have to do with now? Times have changed.


29 Oct 2011 21:20:12
heard from a good celtic supporter with close connections at parkhead that mr lennon has two games to save his celtic career - 6 points is a must from their next two games - very tricky away games to motherwell and inverness c.t.(15)(4)Lennon should go now as he is total garbage and no one wants to play for him or get their finger out.


29 Oct 2011 21:18:10
I have it on good authority that Paul Sturrock is considering an offer from Plymouth.

Kane Ferdinand will sign for Posh in Jan and be loaned back to the end of the season.

West Ham or Ipswich will sign Ryan Hall next summer.(6)(12)


29 Oct 2011 20:09:51
wallace of burnley to blackpool = £ 250,000(2)(23)What rubbish,longside dave


29 Oct 2011 19:57:26
William Sharp is set to join Southampton in the next few days on loan until January then he will sign a 2 1/2 year deal.
He visited Southampton today to discuss the move.(12)(22)Who's William Sharp,sorry for asking but I just don't know. {Ed025's Note - he could mean billy sharp of doncaster?If he has visited Southampton then the chances are that he will no longer want to go there to live!


29 Oct 2011 16:13:09
Southampton: Saints remain interested in Coventry's Lukas Jutkiewicz and will bid £2 million in January.

Southampton will be boosted in January when Arsenal pay the final installment of the Oxlade-Chamberlain fee. ("Up front" fees dont mean the fee is paid in one cheque. Up front means no clauses. Arsenal's "up front" fee for Oxlade-Chamberlain was payable over 6 months.)

Saints have several other options but Jutkiewicz remains top of the list. Coventry remain desperate for cash(20)(13)He is off to boro mate deal is allready done since august couldnt get it done in time thoughAs a Cov fan, with our board... either team would get him for 2m and get a decent acquisition for this leagueNo offence to the lad, but as the post above says, good acquisition for THIS LEAGUE. Southampton need to be thinking ahead to next year in the Prem where we will need more strength in depth and some more fire power alongside LambertSouthampton fans need to relaise they are still not in the premier league! long way to go yet pride and falls spring to mind!


29 Oct 2011 16:08:53
Portsmouth: Eddie Howe remains on the wanted list but the club are also keen on speaking with Peter Reid.(1)(20)Sunday papers. Eddie Howe states he's not interested in the Portsmouth job.
Hard luck Skates,how's your season so far,great at St.Mary's.Eddie Howe has got form when it comes to saying he's 100% committed somewhere


29 Oct 2011 15:35:19
Joe Partington, ( Bournemouth) seen at Swindon today with agents rep. Possible move in January.(2)(10)I doubt it very much as Lee Bradbury made sure to tie him up with a longer contract at the end of last year, despite knowing that he was going to be out for a while after an operation last may. He is in Bournemouth's long term plansA loan move could be good for him thoughAt the moment he is injured again.. he has been very unfortunate with his injuries, but Bradbury has said publicly that he sees Joe as a future captain. Maybe visiting his mate an ex Cherry Alan Connel
