Face it Liverpool will not be signing anyone significant in January. Gillett and Hicks have lost confidence in Rafa, which he has got to win back first before they back him further. After the public row in November he has asked to renew his contract and has asked for January funds, neither of which have been forthcoming. Now the title push is gone. Liverpool just do not believe in themselves enough to win the Premier League, even though they clearly do not suffer the same problem in Europe. Unless Rafa can change this and restore the owners' confidence he will eventually be shown the door.

  Tottenham Ins and Outs this January:

INS: Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Zaccardo, Van der Vaart, Diego Capel, Kompany, Garay, Maduro

OUTS: Berbatov, Chimbonda, Dawson, Bent, Jenas, Gardner

  If Liverpool lose to Middlesbrough away Rafa will be sacked and Jose will become the reds new boss

  I was in the Liverpool club shop today getting my one month old son his first kit and as I was walking past the players and stewards entrance there was benni McCarthy with Rick Parry and Rafa Benitez if there is a deal to be done expect it in a few days as McCarthy had a tracksuit on and it looked like he was or has done a medical GREAT SIGNING if it comes off.

  Henrik larsson has been at Celtic park I cannot believe it but my source is 100 percent and lua lua also in talks with Celtic, Rangers signing chimbonda you heard all

this first.

  Birmingham will for sure beat off competition from Bolton to the bluechip signing of Saviola on loan who was at the recent home game against Fulham. Remember you read it here first. Everybody Salsa.

  Arsene Wenger is at it again. has just done a coup in signing mesut ozil from Schalke 04, the highly promising youngster. the turk

has refused Schalke's offer of a contract extension, believed to be £1.5 million euros/per annum. Juve and fenerbache are also conveting

the youngster. but with all due respect to ranieri and zico Wenger is his man as he encourages young talent and the roots of football is what it's all about. happy new year to all gooner fans.

  Arsenal – Not much activity in the market until the Summer.

Nikolay Dimitrov will either be signed this month or in the Summer. The

only other possibility is a replacement for Jens Lehmann if he leaves

and it is thought that Kiko Casilla of Espanyol will be his replacement.

Of the various talents in France at the moment Hatem Ben Arfa and

Jeremy Menez are the most likely to be invested in, but this is more likely

to happen in the Summer. Finally, young prospect Fran Merida could

join Real Sociedad on loan.

Everton – After leaving Real Betis Johann Vogel is almost certain to

sign for the Toffees. Also Peter Brezovan of Swindon Town is likely to be

on his way to Goodison Park. In the Summer expect Everton to recieve

offers for some of it's elite players.

Sunderland – Roy Keane is interested in bringing in Leroy Lita. The

Black Cats are also favourites to sign Robbie Savage. David Connolly is

attracting interest from Ipswich.

Chelsea – Possible signings for the Blues are Branislav Ivanovic,

Dimitar Berbatov, Nicholas Anelka and David Villa although I doubt all will

be signed.

Liverpool – John Arne Riise, Momo Sissoko and Peter Crouch will be sold

to raise funds for the permanent signing of Javier Mascherano. Also,

Benitez is considering a bid for Wayne Bridge.

  Here we go again. All those Celtic fans stating rumours which are absolute Nonsense.

Both Chesney and Walter have both addmitted that they are not looking at signing quantity just quality. Celtic will sign Hinkel and another full back. possibly Ryan taylour from Wigan. I am best friends with Rangers youngster Andrew Shinnie and unfortuanatley I cannot say to much. Rangers will sign a left back possibly Murphy but Walter wants a player with European experiance. They will also sign a new forward have not been informed who yet. Walter will also look at signing someone who can take set pices and with little bit of flair.

Hutton has turned down Tottenham for the second time due to his loyaty to Rangers and expect to see some of the uprising stars of Murray park to bee giving a little more of a shot WE ARE THE PEOPLE

  I herd Rangers will seal a swoop for out of faver Reading forward Leroy Lita for around 4 milion but it will sadly see the end of Alan huttons Rangers carer as he and his famly have decided to move to north London and he will sign for Tottenham for 8.2 milion. Marc screwa.

  Norwich City boss Glenn Roeder has accepted a £400 k bid for young keeper Joe Lewis from Peterborough. It's thought he will use the money for an improved bid for Birmingham's Martin Taylor and to sign Matty Pattison from Newcastle.

This is not the only leaver from Carrow Road, though, with forwards Chris Brown and David Strihavka both thought to be nearing moves. Julien Brellier is thought to be the other player being allowed to leave Carrow Road, but currently has no firm suitors.

  Southend United have put in a bid for Myles Weston from Notts County.

Southend United are waiting to sign Rory Fallon for a undisclosed fee it's a done deal and they will announce it over next couple of days.

Also they are hopeing to bring Freddy Eastwood in on loan.

  Alan Hutton has turned down Tottenham because he heard there was a chance Man United would be interested, so decided to postpone making a decision on Tottenham offer to see if this interest comes to anything.

  Matías Enrique Abelairas has been in England for talks with an unknown championship side for talks about a loan deal from River Plate

He's a fairly accomplished winger who is looking for regular first team football

  Glasgow Rangers Ins

David Murphy (Hibernian)

Andrew Driver (Hearts)

Luke Moore (Aston Villa)

Brett Mckenzie (youth)

Laryea Kingston (Hearts)

  Finnish forward Alexei Eremenko Jr (Saturn Ramenskoye/RUS) is close to a move to Fulham.

  Gattuso is in Glasgow he will sign it's so exciting nw and huttons is off to Newcastle for £12 million + ameobi also were signing David Murphy for 300,000 and last but not least the signing of the season. Michael Ballack in on loan and maybe one other signing most likely to be Tony hibbert from everton at right. from a reliable source geeeeee emmm #1 W. t. b

  Ok so on Tuesday I told you of all the comings and going that would be happening at Queens Park Rangers. The latest rumours eminating out of loftus road are: Sebastian Rusculleda, as I said would be signing. expect this one next week. possibility of a number of the following, Stefan Postma (gk), Dan Shittu (cb), Martin Taylor (lb), and alegedly sounding out a move for out of favour Wayne Routledge. The Futures bright. The futures blue and white.

Ran9er5 8oy

  No managers are currently interested in taking over at Hibernian after the chairman was quoted as saying; "We Are A Selling Club, We Discover Young Talent And Sell It To Larger Clubs"

Interesting claim given that Paul Ince was interviewed for the job.

  Shock transfer event of the month at the Emirates will be the departure of Mathieu Flamini on a pre–contract agreement to Juve. Having wanted to leave in the Summer but not received any worthwhile offers, his current form has attracted many admirers attracted by the fact he is on a Bosman in the Summer. With Flamini off this may stop the departure of Diarra also.

  Villa to sign G. Barnes, J. Hoyte and J. A. Riise.

  To the person that said Kris Boyd is moving to Celtic then they sholud take a good look at themselves. He will not be going anywhere unless it is on loan to proove himself. Also Stevie Naismith has been in the starting line up the last three weeks so has not been with the reserves so has not put on any beef and is seen as one of the best Rangers players this last month. Only expect David Murphy with one other player to come in. Outs will include Amdy Faye, Ugo Ehiogu and a few young stars out on loan also Thomas Buffel could go. Expect Daniel Cousin to stay as Walter sees him as a player that could become great at Rangers if he can get the right attitude. Also Alen Hutton turned down an £8 million pound move to Tottenham.

Rangers to win the league this season.

  Afc Bulletin >>

Possable move by AC MILAN 4 Walcott and Denlison, Walcott will stay at Arsenal but Denilson might leave. With RVP set 2 return to Arsenal might see Bendtner leave Arsenal and expect Arsene Wenger 2 move 4 a replacement.

  – –SHEFFIELD UNITED Rumours– –

Jason Koumas is on his way to the Blades 100 percent fact, A deal will be done by the middle of next week so he can re–join BRyan Robson at Bramall Lane £2 million should do the trick.

Also expect moves for 2 up and coming Senegalese internationals to sign during the African cup of nations Babacar Gueye aged 21 6'2 Midfielder and Momar Ndiaye aged 21 and a massive 6'5 forward/midfielder both players are with FC METZ in France.

  Sunderland hope to sign Sheff United front man James Beattie for 4 Million + Greg Halford. Roy Keane can avoid the drop if he gets a forward proven in the Premier League he can also get rid of the trouble some Greg Halford who will have had more clubs at 22 than most have in a career.

  Leigh Bromby will complete a move from Sheff United to Derby for around £600 k.

  Arsenal will sign the promising River Plate teenagers Daniel Villalba and Erik Lamela. Also departing River will be forward Emmanuel Morelli another good prospect but he will go to Man United

  100 percent guaranteed United Rumours>>

Man United will sign Alan Hutton for 9 mil. and also sign Javier Saviola from Real Madrid for £5 million. Wes Brown is on his way to Newcastle. mark my words. these are about to happen.

  Ben Anwilck on loan to Leicester for rest of season also bradley Johnson to sign aswell as one more big signin.

Joe peace

  Newcastle will back Allardyce but there will not be any Shorey's coming in until the Summer. Ben Haim for around £2 million will be the first, Dean Ashton can be the biggest name and sum to come to the club, as he will be first choice forward. Talk of a young Brazalian forward nickname the Pitbull, should have fun with Barton, who is on loan from Porto at Vitoria Setubal. Another suprise will be the loan deal for Javier Saviola who is falling down the pecking order and will the perfect replacement for Owen and/or Martins. With limited funds Allardyce may look at Gera of West Bromwich Albion to soarkle up the midfield as well as Robinson at left back so he can let N'Zogbia burst into the midfield. Emre will be shown the door with Dortmund willing to have a go as well as Udinese. Dortmund will be looking to replace Pienaar though they make a swap + cash for the likes of Frei, if they do not get Ashton and/or Philipp Degen in defense. I do not think Dede will be involved, shame tho. Dortmund play in front of 68+ a week so Allardyce sees these players as the 'unfreezables' who will settle in at SJP.

The biggest chance to be taken will be for the 32 year old Blaise Isetsima Nkufo who every year scores double figures without any effort at all. Though rarely recognised by the Swiss having only 13 caps he is thought to be a perfect target man for Newcastle. the price should only a small one as he will se this as his 'chance'. Allardyce COULD come out of this window having spent around £15 million and have five players.

  Re: Tottenham winning the league next year. It will be dogfight but they have a as good a chance of winning the Championship as much as any other team ;)

  Fulop to Leicester on perminant deal if Leicester can afford the £1.5 million price tag fulop who recently has been on loan there says he is enjoying the best football of his life.

  Celtic likely to sign Hinkel, Coelho and Robson. McFadden looking less likely but definitely a future target. Links also to a prolific veteran Swedish forward being reported. Suspect wishful thinking by Celtic supprters. I for one am saying this with my fingers crossed behind my back.

  Cesc Fab is going nowhere.

Jeremy menez to come next week

  Afc Rumours: In Jan Arsene Wenger will be do little business as he does not want to effect the current team spirit with the current form as it is. Expect to see two signings in January, Cassilla (20 year old goalie from Valladolid) and Bulgarian winger Dimitrov who's been on trial with the gooners. Lehmann will have left by tues, when he will have finally settled a contract with Dortmund, Expect to see Gilberto, Senderos and I hate 2 say it but Fabregas (FC Barcelona/Madrid) leave in Summer. Coming in will be Mexes and Youngster Aquilani (cesc repaclment) from Roma and a forward in the form of either Benzema of Lyon or Gouffran from Caens, also Gourcuff is a dead cert, Arsene Wenger is a fan of the youngster and Milan have said he's not needed.
