Come close, listen... you listening?

TORRES IS NOT GOING TO REAL MADRID!!! Of all the players in all the world there's a few you can pin down to never go there. He's one of them. Puyol and Messi are possibly the other 2.

Mascherano is most likely going to Barca for something around €25mil. I also think that Fabregas is going to Barca for around €45mil. And maybe a defender as well.

I expect UTD to sign a central defender next summer to replace the ageing Ferdinand. I would also think an attacking midfielder to replace Scholes. Of course this is all assuming the youth (Gibson, De Laet etc.) don't improve vastly.

Man City need right and central defenders. They are so obviously weak in the back. I do think they're doing well up front. Although Tevez doesn't seem to be fitting in as easily as others.

And will one of you that keep saying you know all in the Liverpool camp and who probably enjoy the gay loving of Rafa, please tell him to buy a striker so Man City don't actually break into the top 4. Same goes for Arsenal fans and AW.



If notts county lose to bradford city tonight and at home to torquay on sunday, ian mcparland will be sacked as manager, with alan buckley being appointed head coach.


OK, boys, this is In the Know again here to reiterate what I've been saying for weeks. There will be big changes at Anfield concerning Rafa, Torres, etc.
1. Gillet laid the ground work this morning by placing all the blame for LFC's performance on Benitez. Like I've said the past month, Benitez is off come Jan. He's already agreed to a payment package. FACT.
2. Torres will be off in the Summer to Real Madrid. As you saw this morning Benzema is not happy at Madrid and will ask to leave next Summer. So, Torres to Madrid and Benzema to Juve. FACT.
3. Macherano will be off to Milan for $18M, not the ridiculous "Rafa bloated belly" quotes that were thrown out there this Summer. FACT.
4. These transfer monies and any new investors will help fund the new stadium. Investors are looking at the club long–term. FACT.

That's all for now. Just facts as usual.

In the Know.


Van der Vaart likely to be moving to Sunderland in January as they continue to strengthen. I know a scout and I am a M.U. fan so no biased but don't be surprised when he ends up at Sunderland.


I hear leeds united are to dip into the loan market this week and are to sign Albert Adomah from barnet on loan with a view to a perminant deal.

stephen o'halloran could also come in on loan if he proves his fitness in villas reserve game this week


Man United News:
– David Silva coming in January to replace Ryan Giggs for a fee of around £25m plus Nani on a 2 season long loan with Valencia having the option to purchase Nani after the loan has expired.
– Yoann Gourcuff will be coming in January to replace Paul Scholes... Scholes will be retiring at the end of this season and will become a midfeild coach at Old Trafford.
– Young Goal Keeper Sergio Asenjo who has recently been transferred to Athletico Madrid was on SAF's monitoring list, Sergio Asenjo will not be coming in because of his recent move to Athletico. He would have been a great replacement for EVDS but SAF has recently turned to Igor Akinfeev of CSKA Moscow.

– Cristiano Ronaldo will not be making a come back to Old Trafford for atleast another 6 seasons. His Real Madrid contract has a £500, 000, 000 buy out clause in it and he cannot leave Madrid for anything less than that until this contract has expired or unless an agreement between United/Ronaldo/Real Madrid is done otherwise.
– Dimitar Berbatov will not be leaving United for Chelsea in a £8 million + Kalou deal.


Welll for starters forest are going up.
10th and rising.
Forest are on the way to sign gareth bale (loan), alan sheenhan.
mccleary on the way out to brighton.



Liverpool are closely monitoring players to strengthen their squad in January. Luis Suarez is the main player they are looking at to strengthen their attack and are looking to swap him straight with Ryan Babel. As for defence, Per Mertesacker is very close to joining along with Aaron Hunt for a combined fee of 25 million. Iker Munain is also looking at joining for 6 million pounds.


Wenger has been extremeley pleased with Arsenal's start to the season and sees only one problem: The defence is shaky and after Gallas and Vermalen there is only Senderos and an increasingly slow Silvestre.

In January + Summer he will look to buy 2 defenders and sell Senderos who is still feels mistreated by the club and Silvestre who is getting on in age and is entering the final year of his contract.

Neven Subotic is a defender who has been turning heads in Germany with his strong displays in the centre of defence. The scouts were impressed by his desire to win the ball and break away from his marker in the penalty area to score goals. He was the subject of a reported 12 million offer from Arsenal in the summer as Gazidis travelled 2 Germany 2 Convince Borussia Dortmund 2 sell but were shot down after Dortmund asked 4 18 million. Odds are high on Wenger returning 4 the talented Serb.

The 2nd defender will b a left–sided one and the obvious choice is one of Europe's hottest defensive prospects in Mamadou Sakho who has been destroying strke forces in Ligue 1 4 almost 2 years. Physically donminant, quick and strong in the tackle Wenger is determined not 2 miss out like he did with new Liverpool recruit Chris Mavinga, Sakho is already being tracked by Man Utd, Chelsea, Inter, AC and Bayern Munich Wenger will offer 8 million and possibly include Silvestre or Senderos 2 sweeten the deal.

Finally, despite Wenger saying he will not return 4 Chamakh he may consider him as a free or offer Silvestre in exchange as Bordeaux asked 4 him in negotiations in the summer.


James Wilson Bristol City on loan at Brentford will move to norwich in January this is from a very reliable source at NCFC
