05 Feb 2013 21:51:04
When Swindon get released from the embargo they will sign Marlon Pack from Cheltenham, Danny Green from Charlton and Bradley Wright-Phillips from Charlton

What embargo? The only reason we didn't sign these players on deadline day was due to the fact we are going through a takeover and the FL still need to approve the deal, we can't sign players until it is done. But we ARE NOT in a transfer embargo.

Yes but we might get them on loan quite soon

Your in a transfer embargo until the future of your owners is sorted out, happens whenever a takeover is taking place, standard Football Manager knowledge.

"Notts County have signed a new striker in for when the loan window opens" Colin Slater said after the loss against Stevenage. 'He's scored goals at this level' also was one of his quotes. We shall see. wouldn't mind Madine from Wednesday at the moment.

Rumours flying around Alan Curbishley has been seen at John Smiths. Heard this from 3 different people.

Curbs will not move up north Fact! He is quite happy doing what he is currently doing. Also he is waiting for the right PL team to come along.



05 Feb 2013 20:23:40
Adkins to be next hudders manager to be announced

He is still down south i'm afraid!

06 Feb 2013 18:54:12

05 Feb 2013 17:31:07
Jimmy Spencer has been unable to shake off a leg injury and will return to Huddersfield. Crawley will then try to take Matt Tubbs on loan frm Bournemouth.

Tubbs will not be back at crawley wish people would except that he is gone.

Alex McLeish to become the next Aberdeen manager.



05 Feb 2013 16:02:19

05 Feb 2013 15:47:00
Rochdale looking at winger mukendi from Liverpool played for Northampton Against us earlier in season

Dont bother signing him, not worth it



05 Feb 2013 14:52:50
just heard from a town source that PDC is being asked to consider Notts Forest!

No self-respecting, quality manager would want even touch the forest job with a 10ft barge pole knowing theyd have to work for al fawasi or whatever his name. Step up Gary Megson!

Who is PDC? Sorry for being a bit slow! Lol

There is no chance of any manager with any sense taking over the Forest job after the latest farce.



05 Feb 2013 14:37:59
Blackpool are set to appoint their current caretaker manager Steve Thompson until the end of the current season.

What has happened to billy davies

Blackpool are not set to appoint Steve Thompson as their new manager.



05 Feb 2013 14:24:35
Kris Boyd to Millwall

Yes yes yes scores goal and he'd be free looking for a club go get him millwall better then what we've got!!

Can not see this happening sorry we have more chance wayne rooney

He's a pretty decent striker who does know where the goal is that is for sure!But what happens to Hulse?And I thought we were after Harry Kane as he is a 'YOUNGER' striker?

Not sure about this rumour as I would think that Boyd would want at least 15/20k a week & you would have to send back Tyson as he is 'INJURED' is'nt he KJ?

Boyd worth a gamble at least for a play off push.
Bring in Kane and with Keogh a good little strikeforce. Oh and get shot of Tyson, Batt, Nguessan

Afobe from arsenal by friday I hear.

I hope this one has some truth to it, Afobe has a good record at younger level and from his day up in yorkshire. could be what would hopefully turn our season back on track!

This loan has been agreed



05 Feb 2013 12:36:13
I posted last week that Mcleish would leave forest this week and Paolo Di Canio would be the next manager.

Pt1 Done.

Await the announcement for PT 2.

I think Di Canio will be off to villa. paul lambert needs to go- chris

They would be his ideal club.

Part 2 will never come true.

I think this has legs it certainly fits with the bust up the other day, within an hour of the bust up being on tv PDC released his statement stating his role is untenable.

For PDF this would be out of the frying pan into the fire. he deserves better



05 Feb 2013 12:21:02
Liverpool are after a new goalkeeper (not really a shock) however the short list of targets may shock you, Liverpool will look to recoup a major profit on selling pepe reina and will look to add to the transfer fee and sopend a huge sum on and moving to sign Victor Valdes. this is now a fact not just speculation, Barcelona have discussed a move for reina but would bulk at Liverpool valuation of �£20m after a poor season with the merseysiders. another target is Samir Handanovic

*****factual rumour---the mitch report ---- *****

Cant see liverpool paying the cash that it would take to get handanovic maybe on a decent defender but not a gk

06 Feb 2013 10:25:30
Liverpool can and need to splash cash for top keeper as reina is moving come the summer



05 Feb 2013 12:27:51
bradford are bringing in chris porter I on a months loan

It's an attacking midfielder we need.

Well I respect any signings that parko brings in he know what he is doing

Dont need a forward now need a midfield player who gets goals

Chris will get us goals he is a good player

We do need another striker as PArky doesn't seem to like Connell and Gray is clearly not up to professional football anymore

How is Andy Gray clearly not up for professional football after two sub games? I think you may have been looking at the a web site presenter by mistake? He is passed his sell by date!

I think he should play connell more

Andy gray is RUBBISH worst signing of this season you would think with all the money coming in we would av got a better player than a 35 year old who does not want to be at bradford. And asif city have to pay 215, 620 in compensation for that mark stewart who never even scored and was terrible at football. Waste of money

09 Feb 2013 12:36:09
Chris Porter on verge of signing for City on loan till the end of the season. Connell going to Burton on loan due to him being unhappy about not playing in the starting 11 at Bradford City!



05 Feb 2013 10:17:02
Apparently, Michael Dawson is to sign for the saints in summer if they're still in the PL, to add to strength at the back. Also, Cacau from vfbStuttgart could sign.

Dawson - possible. cacau - no. chris



05 Feb 2013 09:59:29
Derby county to take 2-3 players on loan when the window opens next week

Im in the know on 1 of these players, i'm sorry I can't say any more at this stage. but it will be a big plus for derby

05 Feb 2013 18:56:57
Wouldn't want to eradicate your trusted sources but could we at least have an initial or two as I think I may have an idea who one of them may be.

05 Feb 2013 21:02:08
Nigel Clough has said that they will be going into the loan zone to do business. It is their way of accessing players with a view to buying or just using as a loan.
Nigel has done this before, so it's nothing new. It's just we don't know who these players.



05 Feb 2013 09:21:21
According to local paper, Gary Megson out of running for Manager Role. Still no reports anywhere of Nigel Adkins turning down job. Owen Coyle could be new man.

05 Feb 2013 12:05:43
hearing mark hughes in the running aswell that would be good for town. UTT TTID

With A Mcleish getting the heave ho, bookies now saying ADKINS fav for that post. Dean Hoyle needs to end all this speculation on who will/wont. let all H. T. F. C. fans know quick and end the guessing game. if not, I will go for job



05 Feb 2013 09:01:44
Manager Mark Robins will look to the loan market to strengthen his squad as we make a push for a playoff spot. Rumours two Championship players already agreed to come on loan.

If rumours are correct we have a midfielder coming in, no names yet due to contracts etc, and Steve Jennings will be off-loaded.

05 Feb 2013 15:33:39
Can't really see Jennings going myself but my preference would be for another proven goalscorer
rather than another midfielder!
Loan-out Bell to get match fitness and send Ball back to Derby if possible.

05 Feb 2013 16:03:31
jennings is the best player at coventry at the moment may be a forward to help clarke



05 Feb 2013 08:06:50
Mkdons looking to re-sign Angelo Balanta on loan when the loan window re-opens.



05 Feb 2013 05:00:00
Iain Dowie WILL be taking over as Oldham Athletic manager
Within the next 48 hours!. you heard it here first! From a good reliable source

Cheers Bob! : -)

Heard John Harbin is returning to England. any chance?

Well you would have heard it first from me before dickov was even gone, but chose not to print my info

Paul Lambert is looking to end his nightmare reign at Aston Villa and make a shock return to League 1 with Oldham! You heard it here first!

Si wheres this appointment of Davros that was supposed to happen in the next 48 hrs then hey?



05 Feb 2013 00:42:02
Barnsley manager David Flitcroft is wanting to sign a defender and a midfielder in the loan window of which opens on Wednesday.
Portsmouth midfielder Liam Walker is in talks with the Oakwell side over a deal. Walker's contract runs out at the end of February and will sign on loan until then. The Gibraltar international is then expected to keep on signing new deals at Fratton Park so he can stay out on loan in South Yorkshire until the end of this campaign.
Flitcroft is also wanting to bring in young Manchester United defender Sean McGinty on loan. The former Morecambe loanee has impressed 'Flicker' in a number of reserve games from the Old Trafford side.

What you say about Liam Walker is factually incorrect & you have overcomplicated the matter. As with Buzacky (similar deal with the same clubs), IF Walker were to sign on loan he would simply leave Pompey at the end of his current monthly deal. As he can't sign a permanent deal as he wasn't a free before the January transfer window shut. Therefore his signs a 'loan' deal instead. Everyone knows the really a deal 'til the end of the season, but it's called a loan. Anyway, he's not good enough for Championship football yet!



05 Feb 2013 00:23:52
Atkins will be offered Terriers job, with bonus incentive to retain championship status.

Plans to get a couple of additions in the loan window when it opens.

We won't get adkins. Whoever we get let's all get behind the team

Really can't see us getting Adkins, but whoever it is will certainly need to get at least a couple of loans to cushion any injuries eg. Beckfords hamstring



05 Feb 2013 00:10:23
Saw Simon Grayson coming out of Blackpool today!
Think what you like. {Ed003's Note - did he shut the door ? }

Six busty blonde girls, a year's worth of free cider and unlimited money. Well, you said think what you like.



04 Feb 2013 23:26:59
Bradford looking to take Sheffield United striker Chris Porter on loan

More chance of getting Gail Porter!



04 Feb 2013 23:26:27
Free agent Brian Howard is training with Bradford

05 Feb 2013 09:54:36
hes going to barnsley

This could be very true. because I saw him down at apperley bridge yesterday!!

I was at the club shop today and seen him in the car park be a good signing if we get him

Isn`t he injured?



04 Feb 2013 23:24:29
Rotherham manager Steve Evans plans to strengthen his strike force by bringing free agent Danny webber to the New York stadium

Do us millers realise how silly we sound to others, going on about signings,, get real.

HOW do you lot stay in the 65% Football league rule.
You get rubbish crowds but your big mouth of a manager just spends it like hell.


If you take the time to look at how many fans turn up you will see that we have been getting over 7,000 most weeks. By the end of season we will be close on 8,000 as an avarage. When you talk about spending money you will also see that it's other people trying to spend money for us and not us! Yes we have been linked with every player that can kick a ball but not spent as much as we dd last season and still have something left in the pot!

Other League 2 teams have higher wage bills, only Bradford have a higher average attendance than us this season- and that's because they practically give tickets away

08 Feb 2013 09:51:11
jealousy is a terrible thing ;-)

Jealous of what? having a second rate manager/team that nobody has any respect for,, or maybe for not being one of the deluded supporters that think rotherham are the new man city,, or maybe by just being being a small villiage in sheffield,, listen to the above comment from a "miller". kev
