Ryan babbel to arsenal in january


CF: arsenal will not sign chamakh in january, we can get him for free in summer if needs be. Wenger has admitted Dzeko is too expensive so count him out in january too. Possibilities for a CF include Huntelaar, Gignac and an outside chance of Balotelli. Rumours have also been circulating regarding Carlton Cole, a great physical presence, great ball control and good in the air, but injury prone is a big question mark next to his name. Big names such as Aguero, Villa andBenzema will definitely not be on Arsenal's radar. most likely to arrive is Huntelaar, followed by Chamakh in the summer.
CB: with Senderos almost certain to go to AMadrid, with Silvestre being crap and with Djourou being injured, a CB is essential in January. names appearing frequently are Sakho, Richards, Upson and Subotic. Count Upson out, west ham cannot do without him. Subotic, currently with a non–CL club, is a perfect choice in my view, but again, will Arsene spend 15m on him? Sakho is a beast, great in the air, on the ground, strong as an ox, etc. but he wouldbe cup tied. Richards, an Arsenal fan, is a good choice considering he can play RB too. however, as an englishman, hisprice is surely going to surge. Christian Zapata is another natural favourite: not in the CL, ready for a new challenge, tall, powerful, etc. expect a move for one CB in Jan and one or two in the summer, depending on whether gallas stays or leaves.
DCM: Song is off to ACN. within the current squad, Ramsey and Diaby are capable of filing in, however neither are ideal. best solution would be a short term loan, but January is a bad time for finding quality loan signings. expect a summer move for Gokhan Inler, Witsel or Toulalan.
AM: Hazard will almost certainly arrive. Rosicky's contract situation is yet to be resolved. if he leaves, don't expect a new replacement. instead, expect Ramsey, Wilshere and Merida (if he stays) to play more.
GK: currently happy with Almunia, Mannone and Fabianski. Doubts as to Fabianski's future are rife as Mannone has emerged as a better GK. in summer, if needs be, Manuel Neuer will be signed.

Ideal: January we sign Subotic/Zapata, Balotelli/Huntelaar. Senderos leaves.
Summer we sign Chamakh, Sakho/Richards, Hazard, Inler. Rosicky, Gallas, Fabianski, Silvestre leave, szczesny promoted to no.3.

arsenal need height and power to supplement the craft and skill currently in the side.

Jose Mourinho To Be Sacked By Club Internazionale If They Fail To Reach Champions League Knockout Stages. FACT


To the management consultant as you will know the value of rangers is based on various parts including players therefore by selling your best players decreases the value of the club! But unless your making up the sales of these players you already know this!? Anyway back to the real world only boughy will leave in jan £4million to birmingham or spurs Webster will be recalled. No other sales unless silly money is offered the bank are happy with the new structure of the club and are not putting any pressure on player sales however no money will be given for buys expect a loan deal at the most.


Expect the following transfers to take place in the next winter and summer transfer window:

#Tosic to Sunderland or Aston Villa
#Moutinho to Liverpool or Arsenal

Man United will be spending money on defenders in January. After yesterdays game against West Ham we seen Neville & Brown both come off and the back 4 ended up with Fletcher as RB, Carrick & Evra as CB and Giggs as LB. This is all because of injuries and Fergie is thinking of replacing some of them in January.

People keep linking Vidic away from United but the fact is that Vidic is happy and has no intention of leaving. The interview with him where you can see this statement being made by the man himself is on

United are thinking of finding a replacement for Rio just in case he decides to call it day and retire early through injury. Ryan Shawcross is one being mentioned and also United will try to lure Pique away from Barcalona as this player is seen as a great Rio replacement.

SAF is also looking at finding a top quality Right Back. Gary Neville came off injured yesterday and Rafael is not quite starting XI standard yet. Ramos/Alves are being mentioned. Whether United can do anything to bring them to Old Trafford is another thing though.

Of course United don't want to spend too big on defenders as our players won't be injured forever and spending big would be a waste.


Big big bristol city news, landsdown will give gary johnson five games to turn things around with steve coppel taking the helm if he goes, in the know


Jaime Alfonso Ruiz – Westerlo–Arsenal in January.


Heart of Midlothian

According to a club source Csaba Laszlo has been recommended Azerbaijan internationals Vagif Javadov, Ruslan Abushev and Elvin Mammadov by Berti Vogts.


After Rosicky getting injured again Arsene will move for Defour of Liege.Price should be around £13–15 million but expect a battle with United, Hopefully Arsene's youth policy will be attracting to Defour.Hazard will sign for £8million.Sakho or Zapata will be signed for £12 million.player who will be moved on will be Senderos to A Madrid, Arsenal will make a serious bid for Dzeko in summer should this not materialise then Hunterlaar for £10 million or Chamakh for free.Arsene will unearth a gem next year watch this space.Well done today good strength of character.Keep the faith fellow Gooners.


Andrew Lonergan is signing for the Dingles (Burnley) in January for £2m.

This is absolutely guaranteed, about as close a source as you can get.
