{Ed 003's Note - now we are into silly season just a reminder posts starting "what a load of rubbish" don't add anything to a thread apart from ending up in silly rows that add nothing to the threads, also "we are bigger than you" sh*te is so childish it's unreal, if you want to have a bit of banter just post as normal and don't use the reply button and it will be put on banter(have a laugh but don't insult other posters) and if posters could leave a name we might start building up some good friendly banter like the individual sites do, we all love footie at the end of the day so less of the hating please.

08 Jan 2013 21:36:35
After Villa target Joleon Lescott wants to stay at the Etihad, Villa are to make a formal approach for Tottenham defender Michael Dawson as Paul Lambert looks to add experience to his young side.



08 Jan 2013 21:33:24
Tom Huddlestone looks sure to leave White Hart Lane either this month or in the summer as a lot of premier clubs line up to sign the midfielder including Everton, Fulham, Sunderland, Villa, Reading and Southampton, a fee of around 7M will persuade tottenham to let him go.

They said the other day that 3.4mil would be enough so I don't think you're correct there.

7m are you kidding yourself be lucky to get 3m

7m for an injury prone and now ageing footballer. You must be having a laugh!?

Doubt either Reading or Southampton will take him. I think the most likely team on that list would be Fulham, possibly Sunderland.

He won't sign for reading he plays for a premiership side and we usually look in championship or lower anything under 2.5 million lets not forget big spending JM is still there

Can't see saints being interested. Not a bad player. Never worth 7mill



08 Jan 2013 21:32:22
Coventry and Birmingham keeping tabs on Kidderminster defender Lee Vaughan .



08 Jan 2013 20:50:20
Rumors coming out of ipswich that Ronald zubar will sign 18 month contract by the weekend with Bradley Orrs loan not being extended.also mick McCarthy monitoring Aaron Ramsey situation at arsenal, as winger looking to loan out the Welshman.

Saunders will get him in a wolves

Actually it's just the opposite from reliable sources. There seems to be little in the Zubar rumours or its likely to have happened by now and Orr will extend his loan ...



08 Jan 2013 21:00:43
Celtic rumoured to be showing an interest in Olympiacos striker, Konstantinos Mitroglou.



08 Jan 2013 20:48:26
Lee Hodson to remain on loan at brentford from watford until the end of the season. Done deal



08 Jan 2013 19:45:46
After missing out on Robbie Brady, Watford are considering a bid for Millwall's highly rated midfielder Liam Trotter

This is more than a rumour - a bid has been made and Millwall are hoping for a bidding war.

He's a good player but where would he fit in. We can't drop Hogg and Chalobah is the best teenager in the country right now.

Why would millwall seriously sell any of their best players to a team in competition with them? This will never happen unless it is a premiership side.



08 Jan 2013 19:34:14
Reading have signed Crawley midfielder Hope Akpan
AFC Wimbledon have signed free agent Peter Sweeney. Jack Butland will be leaving Birmingham for a Premier League Club. Jonny Howson could be going out of loan to former club Leeds.

08 Jan 2013 19:10:35
Ed003....any confirmation that Appleton has had enough of Harry Potter and taken the Blackburn Rovers job??

Blackpool sites in overdrive that our beloved owner has done his usual and Appletons had enough (already)

I really hate Oyston {Ed003's Note - It is a weird one came out of nowhere,with Blackburn refusing to comment it does get you thinking though,sorry I can't help you anymore.}



08 Jan 2013 19:07:44
Norwich have made an offer for CB Michael Dawson from Tottenham, Chris Hughton looking to land the CB that he is good mates from his Tottenham connections.

He could be his dad, makes no difference, dawson not for sale

Would be nice but can't see it

There is no need to get a centre back so this is wrong. We are trying to get a striker... possibly a midfielder as well.



08 Jan 2013 18:42:40
Still no Marsh-Brown in the Yeovil squad, but he is fully fit so he is on his way out of the club after only 6 months at the club.



08 Jan 2013 18:35:30
ipswich set to swoop for colchester midfielder andy bond for 200k

Rather have 007

I'll carry him up myself! {Ed003's Note - bet you can't ;) }

From a Colchester fan - YES PLEASE.



08 Jan 2013 18:27:29
MK Dons have been approached by Chesterfield who want to sign Jay O'Shea. A deal is expected to be agreed later this week

Very believable as O'Shea was on loan to Chesterfield and is very much used as a bit-part player anyway.



08 Jan 2013 18:27:01
Stoke city are preparing to make room for new arrivals with the likes of Jerome, Jones and palacios expected to leave:
Jerome-Cardiff 4m
Jones-QPR or villa 6m
Palacios-Unknown 3m

The players stoke are planning to replace them with, are:
Downing-Liverpool 4m
Zarate-Lazio 5m
Ghoulam-St Ettiene 3m

I highly doubt downing will be leaving Liverpool for 4m, But it wouldnt be the strangest thing to happen to Liverpool if it did



08 Jan 2013 18:19:23
mark gower is wanted by blackpool on loan for the rest of the season



08 Jan 2013 18:17:13
Hull City set to land Luciano Becchio from Leeds United for 3.5 million.

Becchio signing for forest

08 Jan 2013 20:01:32
Just heard from very strong source, becchio to Middlesbrough and leeds in for Beckford return

This is funny, prem teams will offer more than that, and if everton or wigan come in with 6 mill he will go, but he won't be sold to a championship club, as warnock says 'becchio is off limits'

08 Jan 2013 21:40:58
Ive heard From a very reliable source that every comment above this is a load of rubbish. Becchio isn't going anywhere.

Hmmm I'm a tigers fan and Leeds selling us their prime striker when they have just been bought by arabs... Nahhh sorry, would take him to the KC though

why would bechio want to go to hull, he will only leave Leeds for the premiership not a team that will blowup before may, mid table Bruce hasn't a clue.he will wait until he sees what signings we made, my pal is near on warnocks best mate and we have had bids for becks but nothing like his valuation and he's 18 months left on his contract so he can't go anywhere if the money doesn't fit with warnock



08 Jan 2013 18:15:26
Bournemouth have completed the signing of promising young 17 year old, Harry Cornick, from Christchurch. 18 month contract, but will be released to complete his education and represent Christchurch...[source Echo]

Hugo Mallo-Celta



08 Jan 2013 18:05:16
Stoke City football club have shown interest in Darren Bent the Aston Villa striker. Part of the deal will include Kenwyne Jones who is currently in great form, their could also be 3-4 million within the deal.

Remember bent tweeted he would rather join any other club the joining stoke before he joined villa

He got injured in todays game at bradford... and we all know what pulis and the medical team are like...



08 Jan 2013 18:05:12
Ok, so those who are supposed to be in the know.

So what has happened with the much anticipated transfer of:

a) Terry Gornell to us from Shrewsbury?

b) Ashley Grimes departure to Shrewsbury?

& (c) Matt Ritchie to Bournemouth

Shrewsbury have no money and ashley grimes is worth a hell of a lot more than gornell so dosent look like it will be happinging.

No money? Just paid a fee for Mcallister from Sheff United. And i would say we are on a better financial footing than a lot of teams in the football league.

Shrewsbury to sign another player tomorrow had a medical today with dave macc

Shrewsbury also gunna sign 2 more players

Grimes will be happening. It mentioned in the local paper that there could be a swap deal between grimes and gornell.

08 Jan 2013 22:46:57
im just goin of what other shrewsbury town fans have said so am sorry ifs it wrong

Shrewsbury do have money, Wycherley is just tight lol



08 Jan 2013 17:52:12

Strong info that Mick has been in touch with Blackpool re GK Matt Gilkes availability, no smoke without fire, Micks looking for an established keeper to back up Loach



08 Jan 2013 17:49:41
Burton Manager Gary Rowett Giving a game to four trialists in tonight's behind closed doors friendly 2 centre halves and two forwards 2 which are higher than league 2 level 1 non leaguer and 1 overseas player

Brewers lost 9 (yes nine) - 1 to Derby in the friendly. Terrible triallists and the likes of Phillips and Taylor were shocking!



08 Jan 2013 17:43:47
Bristol Rovers have offered Francis Jeffers a pay as you play contract until the end of the season. Jeffers is considering the offer but has also had offers from the MLS as well as Yeovil and Leyton Orient.

Jeffers would be a big gamble for a club like Orient. He's been injured more times than Audley Harrison !

Slade will play safe and sign a young striker on loan from one of the London Clubs.



08 Jan 2013 17:32:49
harry is after dawson from spurs as he is looking for a new c.b + villa will make bid for morrison for 3.5 from norwich

As long as we can replace him with Hooper etc, Villa... he's yours



08 Jan 2013 17:32:44
Rumours would like and hope to see at QPR.
Defenders, Danny Simpson
Michael Dawson
Midfielder, Yann M'Vila
Jake Livermore
Strikers, Loic Remey
Possibly 1 more centre back and striker.
With these additions I think we have a chance of staying up.
Come on Harry do your magic

Loic remu Newcastle, Danny Simpson been offered improved contract at Newcastle toaday

Harry has not got any magic left, just b/s



08 Jan 2013 17:31:46
Just heard cracking round that Derby are keeping tabs on Zander Diamond, Jacques Maghoma and Calvin Zola all looking to be signed in January or in the summer.

Diamond is our POTY and is probably playing the best football of his career but L1/2 is his limit. Maghoma is electric one game and goes missing the next five! Zola is the only one who could do a job for Derby - but cannot see Burton letting any of them go.



08 Jan 2013 17:28:45
MKDONS interested in left back Jon Harley following his release from Portsmouth.



08 Jan 2013 17:23:05
Bristol Rovers should have 2 new players in the squad to face Fleetwood on Saturday. The Gas are in talks with one defender and one striker. The striker is believed to be former Swansea and Ipswich front man Jason Scotland on a a deal until the end of the season. John Ward has also held preliminary talks with a Cheltenham Town centre back who he hopes will help bring back the Bristol Rovers spirit.

Cheltenham don't have any available centre backs apart from Harry Hooman, and you are welcome to him!

08 Jan 2013 20:43:21
Scotland on decent wage at ipswich, more likly Ellington to go back to old club, on a free

Steve Elliott or Alan Bennett are going nowhere and I can't see how 21 year Harry Hooman will bring back the Bristol Rovers spirit



08 Jan 2013 17:18:07
Hull set to sign Federico Macheda on loan for the remainder of the seaon.

Cant see this happening but I would love it



08 Jan 2013 17:07:10
Nottingham Forest will announce 6 signings tomorrow on perminant deals, Billy Sharp, Alan Hutton, Alex Baptiste and Barry Bannan and Craig Gordon and Elliot Ward on loan until the end of the season

Craig Gordon on loan? Hmmm, he hasn't got a club and is a free agent at the moment so if they want him it will have to be on a contract not loan basis.

Doubt it mate! Bannan is playing tonight

You can have Bannan he is absolute rubbish, as his performance tonight proved.

08 Jan 2013 23:14:03
I heard it will be Sharp, Hutton, Boyata, Green, Burke and Ward

I think bannan is a decent football play but forest have a lot of quality midfielders, do we need more ?

09 Jan 2013 01:20:42
Sorry guys this is 100% bull honky



08 Jan 2013 17:06:53
Southampton could be prepared to make an ambitious bid to try and tempt Danny Welbeck joining them on a short term loan.

Yes please but can't see it happening

I really doubt that. We wouldn't go up to the wages he'd demand.

We don't need a forward at all and he would not join us even on loan realistically. Nothing in this post.

No way, overated player i don't think he's better than lambert or j rod



08 Jan 2013 17:02:00
Danny Graham to have talks with QPR, while in London this week as Swansea play Chelsea

Danny Graham is going nowhere cos Laudrup wants him to stay. But If he leaves it's Danny, who wants this happen.



08 Jan 2013 16:46:37
Bristol City to receive investment from an unusual source for McInnes to spend on transfers. Very unusual source though, incredibly left of field.

08 Jan 2013 19:48:27
left of field, tel us more please,

Tell us who, don't give cryptic clues

Please just rid us of this McInnes same old after match quotes week after week and if he can not sort it after all these games get your kilt on and on your bike he is clueless, won't return till he's gone PANTS



08 Jan 2013 15:37:26
Cheltenham Town to take Everton player Conor McAleny on loan for the rest of the season. Deal agreed between the two clubs after the FA Cup game on Monday night.

Paul Benson could also be coming in but Mark Yates would prefer to take Flint



08 Jan 2013 15:20:41
Watford linked with Florian Hartherz, Gino Peruzzi, and Tom Kalas, although all three are unlikely.

Also Patrik Svoboda is there for a trial with a possibility of a full transfer.

Also Alessio Romagnoli is to be signed by udinese and loaned straight out to watford.



08 Jan 2013 15:14:58
Hi Ed, westbrom fan here! Whats the deal with Graham from Swansea? Cheers, {Ed001's Note - no deal with him, he struggled to get back in the team, but he is back in it now.}



08 Jan 2013 15:08:01
Hi Edds:

Any Truth In Albert Adomah Of Bristol City Going To Arsenal As I Have Heard Many People Talking About This For Around A Month Now, A Fee Of Around 2Million Is The Price Expected {Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any interest in him from Arsenal.}

Doubt it very much. Albert Adomah is sank; Bolasie, Ince and Zaha are much better...Adomah gives away possession too easily and can't cross/pass to save his life. Watch him carefully and you'll see he isn't what people think, ignore the stupid step overs and stuff, when it comes down to football, he is poor, just looks fancy...coming from a lifelong Bristol City season ticket holder



08 Jan 2013 16:41:06
Tom Huddlestone will sign for Sunderland after been pushed out of the frame at Spurs

I hope your right



08 Jan 2013 16:40:31
gillingham will be making no further signings after failing to agree personal terms with david wright and losing out on lee hughes to title rivals port vale - boss martin allen will instead focus on utilising his existing resources to ensure a top 3 finish

Don`t think so, by the end of this week Gillingham will have another striker.



08 Jan 2013 16:39:14
Stoke on the brink of signing Valencia left back Jeremy Mathieu, don't ask me for how much as i don't know.



08 Jan 2013 16:27:55
Afc wimbledon have signed 28 year old bury midfielder Peter Sweeney



08 Jan 2013 16:24:05
Blackpool are interested in taking Spurs Iago Falque on loan. Leicester were interested but that has gone quiet for now. A London-based Championship side have also made an enquiry



08 Jan 2013 16:20:56
omnisor bhasera of plymouth going to leeds for £600,000


Never for that much! I rate Bhasera but not even Warnock would over pay that much to help us out!

He's worth less than 100,000



08 Jan 2013 16:19:51
plymouth expected to sign
- aden flint
- billy boden
- alex mcdonald
- jack lester

before saturday

Sounds good Flint solid, Macdonald one of the better ones we have had recently and Lester.better than Chadwick!

Swindon have turned down every offer for Flint, Bodin* is on form for Torquay so why would they loan one of their best players to their rivals? Macdonald's move was Fletcher's wanting and he's not manager anymore but could still happen and Lester has businesses around the Yorkshire area and that's why he's played all his career there and is also a Chesterfield legend and nearly at 100 goals. Good attempt, though.



08 Jan 2013 16:07:26
Sunderland transfers
Darren Bent
John Guidetti(loan)

08 Jan 2013 15:16:02
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas set to sign for Crystal Palace in a £500.000 deal from Ipswich in the next day or so.

Heard some news about this through the papers actually, as a Palace fan, for 500k, bargain and a half! Cracking player, cracking deal. Every chance as he's fallen out of favour under McCarthy too.

Although I do think, despite there being every chance he'll join us, it'll probably cost a bit more than the half a million your suggesting.

500k won't get him consideing we paid 1.5 raising to 2 million ipswich will at least want 1.5

Town fan here, mccarthy seems to rate JET a lot, 500k would certaintly not be enough, a million would be possible but as i said MM rates him highly

08 Jan 2013 20:34:17
JET is not in McCarthy's plans it seems and he has 18 months left on his contract.500-750k would be about right.

I very much doubt this will happen.

Average signing if you ask me



08 Jan 2013 15:04:35
Celtic and Leicester have both made enquiries for Middlesbrough midfielder Marouane Zemmama

08 Jan 2013 22:39:16
Middlesbrough close to signing Graham Dorrans from WBA on loan till end of season and Kieron Dyer eyeing a return to North East possible destination Middlesbrough on a pay as you play deal like Woodgate. Sylvain Ebanks Blake also mentioned.. Possible INS

Dorrans, loan
Dyer, Pay as you play
Ebanks Blake, loan


Bailey, Charlton or Leicester
McManus, Bristol City or Dundee United
Emnes, Reading or Swansea
Miller, Nottm Forest return.
Gibson, Tranmere loan
Reach, York loan
Luke Williams, Crawley loan
Ripley, Rochdale loan

Keep him he's worth nwt and he's to to bad as a sub and freekicks haha



08 Jan 2013 14:57:01
Crystal Palace due to Sign Paddy Mccourt from Celtic for 350k, Ian Holloway has tried signing Mccourt 3 times in two years he still rates him highly but has admitted he needs to improve his fitness.

I hope this is true he was never good enough for Celtic, has the skill just not fit and hogs. Plz plz take him, he should have been gone when the first offer came in.

He always needs to impove fitness but never does but what skills certainly an entertainer

As a Palace fan, we need another winger. McCourt never really lived up to potential at Celtic, but if we can get his fitness up and give him a bit of game time then I think it could prove to be a cracking bit of business. Can't see Celtic demanding much more than 350k either.



08 Jan 2013 14:29:14
plymouths jake cole to be sold to free up funds. romain larrieu is then gooing to come out of retirement as the back up goal keeper

Source? Ro's retired and happy doing a coaching role and Cole's also our best keeper and may well be our first choice again with the new manager.



08 Jan 2013 14:27:34
Nottingham Forest are in talks to bring ageing Italian striker Andrea Silenzi back to the City Ground

I have been told that Bradford City are in for Aden Flint the CB from Swindon Town and the deal is close to being completed and Chris Iwelumo should be signed tomorrow.

08 Jan 2013 13:54:20

Millwall have bid £300k for Ipswich's Michael Chopra

Not a bad player atall, but he has got his problems off the pitch & he is on atleast 20K a week? I would think that rules us 'OUT' if TRUE!

I really hope not! 3 or 4 years ago maybe!

300 k won't get him and he is on 15 to 20 k a week so good luck

Itfc fan were not that lucky

Blackpool are set to nip in and steal Kilmarnock midfielder Liam Kelly from under the noses of Bristol City.

The player may want to live further south than Blackpool

Ah well, you can never have enough midfielders I always say. 25 I think we had, at the last count....



08 Jan 2013 13:14:12
Just spoken to a friend in the new forest who has just seen Jack butland at a posh hotel where he works ? Strange..i thought adkins said we didnt need another goal keeper?

What's the hotel then? The same one Noel Gallagher got married in by any chance?



08 Jan 2013 13:08:28
Tim Matav from Psv is a target for Southampton, thought be in region on 6.5 million.

Perhaps in the summer, can't see us being in for him this month when we have other priorities.

Is he any good? Haven't seem him play.

He looks a good player, good goal return, wonder if hes a long term replacement for lambo

Who? How are you supposed to pronounce that?

Can't see it. Where would he fit in? We are pretty well off for forwards.



08 Jan 2013 13:03:43

Whats happening with remy ed? Is he coming to newcastle? {Ed039's Note - Newcastle would like to do the deal, but QPR waiting in the wings and rumour has it Inter Milan keen as well)



08 Jan 2013 12:22:19
looks like spurs are closing in on hamsik from napoli. the fee looks to be around 21m. they are also in talks with newcastle over b.arfa but that does depend on the hamsik situation. huddlestone looks all but gone with norwich now the suprise takers

No thanks don't want hudds to greedy want 50 grand a week.afew months ago to go stoke,,,,, no thank you another sick bay none player

Would be good signing for norwich but i don't think we need another midfielder

Heard Huddlestone is going to Sunderland

Charlie must be lost and asking for directions back to Burnley!



08 Jan 2013 12:12:00
North end look to have landed garner on a free transfer from watford

08 Jan 2013 16:30:21
Just need a good free right back now please.

He aint good 1 goal in 1 year and a half at watford



08 Jan 2013 11:50:37
Crystal Palace are looking at Jason Scotland to replace Easter who is moving to the MLS

Parish is desperately trying to convince Zaha to stay at Selhurst Park but he has not got on well with Holloway

A bid has been received from Doncaster for Lewis Price but Palace are only willing to send him on loan once they are out of the FA Cup.

lastly Palace have put in a loan bid for Fraizer Campbell and the only guaranteed Palace exit will be Kyle De Silva who will join Fleetwood on loan until the end of the season

Jason Scotland is joining Gillingham!

Palace are going to replace one misfiring, rubbish, league two standard striker in Easter, with another in Jason Scotland? Joker.



08 Jan 2013 00:12:47
Any truth in rumours that Lambert has bid 2 million for Morison? Ed? {Ed015's Note - Heard nothing of a bid, just that there is interest in him from several clubs}.



08 Jan 2013 11:55:24
Ed003 any news on Ince ?
Blackpool reckon they have not recieved a 2nd bid from LFC but ED002 had mentioned LFC had made a 2nd bid with players included on loan. {Ed003's Note - that is the last i've heard aswell.}

He's out of contract at the end of the season, so wait for his contract to run down and get him then.

Think you will find Blackpool have a option on his contract which they can activate for a further year {Ed003's Note - This is correct}



08 Jan 2013 11:46:45
Millwall lining up an offer for BWP from Charlton.

Surely we're not that desperate KJ?What is going on?

He has been linked with everybody so far this season. Not a bad if we can get him cheap. Ross Mccormack would be a far better purchase if we could afford his wages

Don't think so. Spurs never sell young players

I dought that bwp has loved it at charlton and i don't think he would go to one of there biggest rivals.

Send N'Guessian the other way please, could do with him on the wing!

Perhaps a swap for N'Guessan?



08 Jan 2013 11:41:52
Frank Lampard to Man Utd? David De Gea to Real Madrid? Alexander Buttner out on loan? any truth to these?

I heard buttner to nottingham forest on loan

WBA will offer 2.5mill for Sam Inkoom, looking to sign him by mid to end Jan. Reliable info.



08 Jan 2013 11:34:34
Millwall are set to make an offer to Spurs for Harry Kane.

Please be true !!

Lets hope this is true and we can get him on loan/perm signing?

Getting Kane at the den again would be 'GREAT' but just can't see it happening im afraid!

I don't know why everyone goes mad over Harry Kane. I saw him 4-5 times at The Den last season, and thought he was just OK, he definitely improved as the season went on. I know he scored a few goals, but he wasn't exactly quick or tricky. I think Keogh is offers far more. I also think Wood was head and shoulders above Kane, gutted we couldn't keep him... I'd have Kane back, but I don't think he'd have the same impact. I reckon he's a good Championship player at best, I don't think he'll ever play for Spurs.

I hope this true, we don't want any of the other 2nd rate strikers we are being linked with. Harry is the real deal and works well with Keogh or Hendo.



08 Jan 2013 11:31:02
Just seen Charlie Austin walk into the main reception at Norwich City

I thought the last dead cert Norwich post mad eout you sign players at service stations

It was an austin martin parked outside get your eyes sorted,,,, mate ;;;

Hopefully not

We need premier league experience not austin not proven

Hope this is true Charlie Austin is a great striker, don't know if he would perform in the prem though.



08 Jan 2013 11:28:29
Shrewsbury sign david McAllister on a 2 year and a half contract x

Done deal welcome to the club :)



08 Jan 2013 11:14:35
Portsmouth in talks with Crawley over the potential capture of verteran Gary Alexander

You heard it here first

Love how a club in the financial state your club is in can go about getting players on still pretty good wages.

Yes I'm a saints fan but I don't want you to go out of business, I have alot of friends who support Pompey. when we went through admin we played are young players and struggled. Your still out pricing players wages against other league one clubs this is what I find ridiculous.

I hope your supporters trust get a deal sorted soon, but I also hope you club sort itself out because your practically doing what you did in the prem now, paying too much in wages to get players in you have some Good youth players yet only a couple get in the squad?

Good luck
Clarkey saint

Pompey can have him.

John akindi thank god

Yeah but Paul Benson going there apparently and Harley, Howard, Williamson, Dumbuya are all going Gyepes signed one month deal and we recalled Butler

You can have Gary Alexander! He cannot shoot to save his life, id worry even more about Portsmouth staying up if they had him for a striker! you'd get more goals out of the goalkeeper!



08 Jan 2013 11:32:16
Dj Campbell to Ipswich Town permanent deal..
Jay Bothroyd to Crystal Palace loan..

Rednapp just recalled him from loan n said he wants chance

Consider we have signed 2 strikers with a 3rd in Nouble expected today I think DJ deal is dead in water

Doubt dj to itfc we have 3 new strikers in 1 week



08 Jan 2013 11:12:18
Bristol city are to make a bold bid for kieron dyer

Bet your club doctor is happy..

08 Jan 2013 13:15:13
Why make a bold bid, he's a free agent?

Other way round DJ to Palace, Bothroyd to Ipswich

They wont. That is all.

I have also heard this after he was released by qpr just hope bcfc do get him he stays fit

As opposed to an italic one...



08 Jan 2013 11:11:53
Brighton are looking at adding Jermone Loufanne to their development squad. The highly rated French teenager is currently part of the youth team set up for French team Troyes and has attracted interest from Inter Milan and Arsenal.

08 Jan 2013 23:10:15
Zamora is on his way to Brighton. 1.9million and a 2.5 year contract. 24k per week plus appearance/goal bonus

Zamora is on like 80k at QPR so highly doubt he will take that big of a wage cut



08 Jan 2013 11:03:59
Heard a rumour that a Crawley striker struggling for first team football will be loaned to Oxford United with a view to a permanent move. Any ideas?

John Akinde. Wouldn't cut it at Conference level let alone L2.

Most likely john akinda

John Akinde

Please dear god John Akinde then we may be able to sign an actual striker and have more that just Gary Alexander as Billy Clarke is a midfielder!



08 Jan 2013 10:54:34
Watford are set to sign Richmond Boakye from Juventus, breaking his loan spell at Sassuolo, for a fee reported to be around £2,000,000

Has this report come out of Italy?

Rubish, its Brandy from United that Zola has bid for, he has been given 10 million to spend and he has around 3 million left after signing at least 6 players this month from Undinese

Would be nice if true, although previously reported to be a target of Man Utd and valued in the region of 5M. Well thought of by parent club Juventus and under contract until 2017 so cannot see this one happening, but good try.

He plays for Walsall. Was released by Man Utd in 2010

Who's Brandy? are you sure you didn't have too much of it over Christmas?

All signings from udinese are for free, its brady not brandy, and no way has he been given 10million to spend.

Why would Zola be given 10m by the Pozzos, only for him to spend 7m of it giving it back to the Pozzos?



08 Jan 2013 10:53:53
Bury FC have agreed with Wigan athletic that Adam Dawson will play in 75% of matches after Wigan offered to pay his salary until the end of the season.

Thompson from Leeds will stay at Bury in a similar deal.

A local Finance company will provide the reserve team with a new mini bus on March 1.

Poleon from Leeds wished to return to Bury.


Someone close to the board.

That is stupid and not true



08 Jan 2013 10:53:25
Danns will be loaned to huddersfield today
phillo itk

He is a quality signing just what we have been missing, resulting others being played out of position

Have we got shares in leicester city or something? And of course he won't be able to play against them in the cup, bizarre!



08 Jan 2013 10:35:56
jonatan tollas nation could be on his way to bolton after his agent jim solbakken was quoted in the norwiegen press as saying bolton are in pole position and the player wants a move to england.

I have read up on him. He is a young centre half with a number of under 21 caps behind him with Norway. Very highly rated by the club. One I would definately look into as we need to shore up our back 4 and soon.

Brilliant news about Wheater turning out for the reserves. Git rid of the crap Mills, Knight, Ricketts and even Ream who is not strong enough for the Championship.

Bring in Tollas and Craig Dawson A sap.



08 Jan 2013 10:47:23
Frank Nouble of Wolves is having a medical at Ipswich Town FC today, with a view to an eighteen month deal. The clear out begins.

Billy Wright.

I was surprised he was even signed. maybe MM identified him, TC wanted him and deal was done b4 SS arrived



08 Jan 2013 10:44:05
joe garner to complete move to pne today on a 18 month contract.



08 Jan 2013 10:19:51
Neil danns is set to move on loan, from leicester city, to huddersfield town until the end of the season

Not another loan

Just the type of experienced midfielder Town are lacking at the moment. No offence to Big Keith

Been confirmed on town site good signing

The terriers will keep bringing in loan players until we can get rid of some of the overpaid dross Clark left us with.

Qulatity player and hes a scourser aswell and he wants tostay in liverpool from maca town fan

No offence taken, me and Adam need some help in the middle of the park, great signing. Just waiting for GTF next



08 Jan 2013 10:14:56
Carlisle to loan out Adam Colin so he can regain his confidence. Carlisle in the mean time will look for a 2nd goalkeeper for loan



08 Jan 2013 10:11:53
Plymouth are set to sign Neal Trotman and Terrell Forbes(Both Transfer Listed at Chesterfield) as John Sheridan looks to fill in the gap left by Darren Purse in the Plymouth defence.
Either Plymouth Argyle or Walsall will also sign Craig Westcarr from Chesterfield before friday.
Other potential Plymouth Argyle targets include Liam Dickinson, Liam McAlinden, and Stephane Zubar.

McAlinden and Zubar on loan i'd presume?

Also Aden Flint from.Swindon

Plymouth going down with sheridan as new manager! he's clueless can't make subs before 80 min, he makes rubbish signings ie. trotman a big lump who can't kick a football in a straight line.

I doubt Liam Dickinson will go down well with the fans



08 Jan 2013 09:44:39
Roberto Martinez will sign Rayo Vallecano goalkeeper Cobeno and Attacking midfielder Piti for £3m



08 Jan 2013 09:20:54
Bristol City looking at Grasshoppers Frank Feltscher - Venezula international midfielder will join on loan with a view to a permanent move.

Club have confirmed he is training with the club for a trial and may play for U21's

He's on trial now, scored 2 (after 50 mins) against Forest Green for the reserves



08 jan 2013 08:50:41
any bristol city transfer news in or out, or when the manager will be sacked, or when the board will be stepping down,

If derek mcinniss fails to get 3 points v leicester, he will be sacked in favour of mark hughes {Ed039's Note - Mark Hughes for Bristol City?? OK, heard it all today)

No he's on trial at the moment then we will see what to do with him. It's too early to say but a brace for the reserves is the right way to go about it. Could be the attacking midfielder we need!



08 Jan 2013 08:49:03
After the departure of lee hughes at notts county they will announc the signing of an ex premiership striker to replace him. This is rumoured to be Jason Scotland, matt Derbyshire or rob hulse.

How can people not believe this its in black and white out of those 3 id say we have the best chance of signing derbyshire however id prefer jason scotland if we could somehow get scotland and derbyshire they would work well as a front 2

BBC sport say craig beattie

Hulse and derbyshire are rubbish would settle for scotland

Craig beattie is in talks and robbie earnshaw ex-prem striker has been released by cardiff after loa spell at a foreign club



08 Jan 2013 08:47:53
Swindon Town have extended the loan of Danny Hollins from Charlton.

08 Jan 2013 08:33:37
A strong source has confirmed talks between Gillingham and Robin Shroot of Stevenage and Daryl Murphy of Ipswich are close to being completed.

Daryl murphy is on loan at Ipswich from celtic?

Shroot signed a new contract last month, and before that he made it clear he wanted to move to a bigger club if anything

Gills are a bigger club than Stevenage

Robin shroot has sign a new contract with stevenage



08 Jan 2013 07:26:25
norwich to tie up peter crouch deal by thursday done deal

If this rumour has any validity it would mean a huge change in NCFC's wage structure. Not so sure on the wage front but I think if he did come Crouch would do a good job

Utter rubbish. Why would we sign a 31 year old striker who is well past his prime with but a season or two left in the top flight within him?

08 Jan 2013 13:02:50
Cant see that happening?

How many strikers are we buying this January is that 12 or 15 so far.

Would be delighted with this signing

Be a good signing with the lads we have to cross the ball crouch perfect target man



08 Jan 2013 02:34:37
Takashi Inui is near all set to complete his transfer from high flying Frankfurt to Norwich City on Thursday at a fee of £3.5m.

Norwich City are also working very hard to secure the signings of 2 other strikers but nothing has been confirmed or agreed to on that as of yet.

Lets hope 1 of these strikers is Danny Graham

Lets hope 1 of these strikers is Gary Hooper



08 Jan 2013 02:14:48

08 Jan 2013 01:47:35
Ed can you confirm that psv have accepted a 22m bid for r strongman? And who it's from? {Ed002's Note - £22M seems a very large number - if there has been a bid it would be from Manchester United or Milan I would expect.}



08 Jan 2013 01:03:16
Bury's Trevor Carson to sign for Birmingham when they sell Jack Butland

Funniest thing i've heard!



08 Jan 2013 00:59:39
North East Rumours

Newcastle United are desperate to keep hold of their best lp players but could sell before bringing new faces. Rumour is Coloccini is going to San Lorenzo for £500k. Also being touted around is Ben Arfa to Spurs for £10m.

Pardew's top target is Loic Remy but with QPR offering wages NUFC won't match and Inter Milan now showing interest this deal looks dead along with the deal for Lyon's Gomis. Newcastle have watched the striker but the asking price is too big for the club. The deal looking likely however is for Toon fan Danny Graham. Swansea have come out to the press and said he isn't for sale but could be close to signing for Newcastle for £4.5m.
If Coloccini leaves Pardew will go after Arsenal's Sebastien Squallaci on loan as a short term fix.

Sunderland have signed Alfred N'Diaye but just waiting to announce it. The club are also looking at Tom Huddlestone and Michael Dawson from Spurs. Nothing concrete yet. Club are also looking at a right back and a striker but no mention of names yet but are apparently close to agreeing a fee with Anderlecht for defender Roland Juhasz believed to be £800k.

Leaving Sunderland could be Campbell to Hull along with Meyler, Bramble and Saha to QPR, Vaughan to Cardiff and Kilgallon to Reading.

The Colo bit is rubbish. That story ran last year and is only being touted again as his father is the coach

08 Jan 2013 11:16:57
colo rumour has been rubbished days for ben arfa 10m...haha, if zaha beeing touted at 20m then he is worth at least the same...where do people get this tosh from

Kilgallon not going to reading not good enough.

Zaha only going for 10 so ben arfa could be right and would be gutted to lose killgallon especially to someone as poor as reading

Look, let's leave Campbell (Frazier) to Huddersfield FGS and concentrate on signing a good striker with proven EPL experience for the final push.
No, I don't have anybody in mind because I will leave that to the good judgement of Mr Bruce!



08 Jan 2013 00:37:18
Scottish international striker KrisBoyd is in talks with Huddersfield Town over a January transfer from Portland Timbers. A small fee will be paid in order to secure his immedia te release. This along with other Scottish players Craig Gordon and Aberdeen wing Ryan Fraser will be completed before the next game against Birmingham. Out will go Kallum Higginbottom to Motherwell. Anton Robinson will go on a season loan to Crawley or Mk Dons. Alan Lee is rumoured to be loaned out as well - Rotherham are believed to be interested in taking the veteran forward. Interesting times!!

George Boyd yes, Kris Boyd no thanks. Craig Gordon is interesting a few clubs, Wolves being one, can't see him coming to play second fiddle to Smithies. Midfield and attacking winger is what we need.

Smithies on his way to Everton?

Let Smithies go to Everton. He'll not get into their First Team and will be back in League Two or the Conference at the start of next season. He is not good enough and hasnt developed since renewing his contract. Best Keeper is Bennett which he proved last season and would do again this year if given the chance.

Haha I am a town fan but you lot make me cringe on here. Let smithies go to Everton? are we really a team that can say that? the lad has an error in him (not as much as joe hart but hes all of a sudden the best keeper in the world), but he has kept us in games all season. And btw, the lad got us into this league, pretty sure you weren't insulting him like this when you were dancing around this summer. Honestly some town fans are unbelievable, its no wonder we get the **ss taken out of us



08 Jan 2013 00:17:08
Macclesfield's Waide Fairhurst to join Scunthorpe in the next two months

If this true this will be a very good signing for us was ace in the championship

{Ed003's Note - sorry mate I had already deleted it if you can post again I'll put your comment through,cheers}
