Southampton fc to sign macclesfield striker joh rooney in january on a free as there are rumours he wants to play in a higher division


Arsenal, Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool, City, United and Spurs Rumours:
ARSENAL – AW is confident in his current squads ability and believes that they can win the league but does feel they need to improve slightly. He wants a centre back and a striker. For centre back expect either Neven Subotic or Gary Cahill to come in for £14 million. As for the striker, rumour has it that AC Milan are looking to sell Klaas–Jan Huntelaar in a cut–price deal worth £8 million.
VILLA – MON believes his side have the ability to break into the top 4. His main priorities are to hold onto their top assets. i.e Ashley Young. He still thinks adequate cover is due at centre–midfield. Rumour has it that he is looking at David Dunn of Blackburn and Jermaine Jenas of Spurs. Dunn for £6 million and Jenas for £8 million.
CHELSEA – Now that their transfer ban has been suspended expect a couple of transfers. CA believes he needs a striker, a winger and a goalkeeper! For striker expect him to go after Alexandre Pato again, but his price may prove to be just too much and CA may go after Sergio Aguero for £40 million. Out wide, their is talk about a move for Franck Ribery! This deal would cost the club a steep £60 million so it would seem unlikely. The other name out wide is Andres Guardado of Deportivo la Coruna for about £19 million. Now the goalkeeper CA has lined up is expected to put the pressure on Petr Cech and possibly wrestle the number one jersey from him. CA has targetted Shay Given to play in between the sticks. Expect a deal worth around £20 million, as it may take that much to prise him from Manchester City.
LIVERPOOL – There is money available! Although it's not very much. There is currently £10 million available and the Yanks are willing to give all of that to Rafael Benitez, who will continue as manager until the end of the season. Expect Rafa to sell Javier Mascherano for £35 million to Barcelona, which will allow £45 million. Andriy Voronin will also leave for £5 million to Hertha Berlin as will Andrea Dossena but to Napoli instead. Martin Skrtel is also likely to move to Juventus for £12 million, and Albert Riera is likely to move to Barcelona for £13 million. So £80 million. What will he do? A striker is a priority, as is a direct replacement for Javi. A winger would be needed as well.OK, the striker is most likely going to be one of Luis Suarez for £20 million, Luis Fabiano for £28 million and Jermain Defoe for £24 million. The winger is likely to be Juan Manuel Mata for £19 million or Jesus Navas for £25 million, and the Masch replacement will be Daniele De Rossi for £28 million or Jeremy Toulalan for £22 million.
MAN CITY – Defnders are needed! A left back, a centre back and a defensive mid. Gael Clichy (unlikely) for £24 million or Juan Manuel Vargas for £18 million at left back. Matthew Upson for £12 million, Ryan Shawcross for £10 million or Brede Hangeland £15 million are likely targets for them. Yaya Toure is the number one target at centre mid and a fee of £29 million is likely to secure a deal. A goalkeeper will also be needed if they are to sell Shay Given and thay are checking out Robert Green of West Ham for a fee of £12 million.
MAN UTD – SAF has almost no money to spend. He has been give £25 million from the CR9 transfer, which is all likely to be spent on David Silva of Valencia CF. SAF will sell Michael Carrick for £14 million and Rio Ferdinand for £15 million, just to up the funds. This will buy Gary Cahill for £12 million and Stevan Jovetic for £17 million.
SPURS – Houdini feels that a new centre mid is required, along with a new goalkeeper. He is looking at Mikel Arteta of Everton for a fee of £16 million, and Chris Kirkland is being targetted as goalkeeper for £8 million.
Deckchair Round




Lets Starts with the Gunners, facts is :: If gael clichy leaves Emirates as desired by madrid & while sendros may leave too along silvestre and keepin in mind the fact that gallas is ageing, Than they may try to sign Puyol , Subotic, Richards or Mertasacker( but not all of em) & for clichy's replacement they may go for Lahm, as heard too that he is having problem in Munich.But if Wenger again as always don't try to play cheap for him.Cmon !! player like vermaleen or Arshavin deserves more money Hello Mr. Wenger you listening ? !! Uff I hate these people with cheap mentality LOLzzz. (^_^)



" I can not believe that stupid attention seeking people will still try to link Fernadono Torres with either Man Utd or Real Madrid...niether is EVER going to happen...EVER EVER. They are the two last teams he would ever join!...its like linking Gary Neville to Liverpool! so lets nip it in the bud for good you stupid mancs!!! "

Well indeed true, even though i got nothing for manU but as i remember last transfer season, I also saw rumors submitted by some hopeless peoples of RVP or coming to Old Trafford or fabregas to Bernabeau after losing losing Ronaldo & Tevez.
I have also been seeing this alot that ManU does try to target those player which are normally on radars of Wenger/Arsenal. Example Akinfeev , Mertasacker , Van Der Vaart , Eden Hazard , (& after goal on Old trafford this season, ManU fan wants) Arshavin & if i am not wrong some years back Ronaldo was almost certained to land in Arsenal but ManU took him with better bid.But still !! Wat the heck ? that's the way it goes !!

They may see Rooney go away to Madrid, thx to Ronaldo & this rumour is also getting more support by the fact that Ferguson may retire soon & Vidic may also be involved in Bid War between Barca & Madrid.I would rather prefer "Class of Vidic to Barca rather than Madrid", But Since they have already signed puyol for 3 years this looks difficult.In may come Aguero or Robiniho as Berbatov may stay ( ffs but lol as he is to poor for big 4).Ribery & Silva may also be on radar.but if Silva comes than Nani leaves.Carrick may also go for possible Modric swap but redknapp said it before , he is making his Spurs team around hime & Lennon, so a Difficult swap.


This club is playing at the best level at the moment like Arsenal's invincible side back in 2003–2004 even though i am not the fan of blues.
And after ban is lifted they are gonna get leathel than ever & hence almost certain to dominate over United & win Prem League for 1 or 2 yrs after that they may get challenge from Arsenal's young side which is improving & since arsenal is growing financially also they both will collide more often for title.

Ins : Pirlo , Pato or Aguero ( both are superb talent but over priced ) may come as a surprise they may also try for Ronaldinio.

Outs : J Cole , Carvallio , Deco.


Oh !! Man don't talk about them , most dissapointing , helpless & unlucky of them all.

Torres won't leave as he is on path of gerrard of becoming red's legend.Mascherano will leave, Babel won't leave nor Benayoun(only in Silva swap).

If the get some cash from transfer than Torres won't mind spain companions along gerrard's guidance, so don't be surprised if u see Silva/Villa duo in Anfeild.possible Bojan or Henry Loan.And if Benitz goes than they may go for morinho or Redknapp & if redknapp comes than he may try to pull modric & lennon to anfeild.
But IN MY OPINION they should think about the poor defence in back also.

MAD–"Money Minded"–RID


When, not if, Manuel Pellegrini is sacked Real will look to appoint either Jose Mourinho or the bookies favourite, Michael Laudrup. I think it will be Laudrup personally. He will look to sign Juan Manuel Vargas from Fiorentina for £18 million or Gael Clichy for £25 million to add more choice at left–back. He'd also be looking to sign a left–winger, possibly in January but most likely in the summer. He's looking at Franck Ribery for £65 million, Florent Malouda for £20 million, David Silva for £25 million, Andres Guardado for £21 million or Luka Modric for £32 million. He may want a physical central midfielder to play alongside the class of Xabi Alonso, and are weighing up his options. He's looking at Michael Essien for £40 million, Toure Yaya for £28 million, Darren Fletcher for £21 million or he might go for somebody world–class like Cesc Fabregas for £45 million, Xavi or Andres Iniesta for £35 million and £50 million respectively. The last two are highly unlikely but Laudrup is still interested in the two. His main target is a striker to play alongside Benzema, because Laudrup has confidence in his ability, or with Kaka just behind them as the lone striker. His number one target is Fernando Torres of Liverpool for £60 million but other possibilities are Didier Drogba for £30 million, Wayne Rooney for £50 million or Robin van Persie for £32 million. From what I would do this would be a possible starting XI: Casillas, Ramos, Albiol, Pepe, Vargas, Alonso, Fabregas, Ronaldo, Ribery, Kaka, Torres (4–2–2–1–1 formation) The Trump Card ;) "

!! WTF !!
Well what else can you say... cause sayings are true "" Money Sometimes Makes You Blind "".!!


18$ + 25$ + 65$ + 20$ + 25$ + 21$ + 32$ + 40$ + 28$ + 21$ + 35$ + 50$ + 60$ + 30$ + 50$ + 32$ = 597& MILLIONS.Either this will create market history OR I am so sorry for your future madrid. May u Rest In Peace.


STOP THINKING LIKE SWEET LITTLE PRINCESS OF CASTLE as YOU WILL NEVER !! I MEAN "NEVER" !!!!!! GET Fabregas, Torres , Drogba, Toure , Xavi , Iniesta , RVP or Rooney. Espacially after The TREATMENT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVING TO SOME GOOD PLAYERS FOR LONG NOW. Example the dutch side Huntelaar, Snieder, Robben etc.

FABREGAS(as he is not in mood to leave London for 3–4 years atleast even for his home Barca, get that ) or TORRES (wont leave prem easily espacially after support treatment he is getting from red fans as he is already legend ) or Drogba( Chelsea is also your mentality , won't give easy & besides i doubt this player can play as good for any club in world as good he plays for Blues) for fact.& HELLO BARCA IS YOUR RIVAL DUMB HEAD THEY WILL NEVER GIVE THERE COMPLETE MIDFEILD FOR MONEY ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL .You may have chance with Rooney(due to ronaldo factor) but i also doubt Van Persie as he is playing as 1 of the best striker in premeier league so wenger will demand more than 32$ million DUH !!!. RVP MAY ALSO REJECT MADRID DUE TO THE TREATMENT THEY GAVE TO DUTCH PLAYERS LAST SEASON AFTER NOT DOING WELL OR FOR BEING RESTED IN SOME CASES.


Dipping in a form without a question, so will try to target some players for sure & some players will leave.Robiniho will come in Yaya Toure swap, as Henry is retiring after world cup & Bojan hasnt delievered goods upto there levels.Fran Merida will also not leave emirates for atletico or nou camp, just signed new deal.Xavi is ageing that is a concern for them that's why they are on knees of Gunners for Cesc, Fabregas is the main target but will have to satisfy for Mascherano instead for sure as it looks like he won't come to Barca in near future.And also From past mistakes , Wenger is now learning not to give the key players to espacially Barca ""LoooL"" cause it must have hurt alot when he see's his X– players lifting CL Trophy with them.Wenger also said in a joke that " IF FABREAGAS THEY WANT THAN THEY ARE GONNA GIVE MESSI IN SWAP " & I THINK WENGER THIS TIME CANNOT BE PUT IN PRESSURE FOR A HEAVY AMOUNT OF CASH AS THEY ALREADY HAVE IT PLENTY IN THERE KITTY, I ALSO DOUBT 60$ Million Cash isn't enough for this guy at the moment.

Catalians may also have there shot in bid for David duo of Villa & Silva (espacially Villa).May also buy some in Midfeild likes of Essien along Mascherano.And a GOALKEEPER Riena is a possibilty.


Hi, any birmingham city transfer rumours please?

Chelsea to sign rest of premiership refs after the abysmal performance today. United to sign silva and villa for £50m


Liverpool board have decided to splash the cash in January in effort to maintain Champions League status for next season. £30m will be given to Rafa plus whatever made on sales. A CB will be brought in, Rafa not convinced by Kryiakos, and is worried by Skrtel's slump in form and Carragher's slow demise. On the list are Matthew Upson, Simon Kjaer and Brede Hangeland – all would cost in the region of £10–15m. A CF is next priority with Torres' injury situation, a deal with Goran Pandev of Lazio to join next summer on a free is already agreed but Rafa wants to bring this forward, 5m euro bid in the offing. With Rafa isn't happy with the depth of his wide options. Kuyt and Benayoun are his 1st choice with Riera. Babel is still to convince anyone he can convert his potential. Rafa looked at Eljero Elia, but he's very similar to Babel – so seems put off. A 12m bid has been made for Mata. If these signings still mean Liverpool out the top4, Rafa will be sacked, with Martin o'Neill, Jurgen Klinsmann, and surprisingly Owen Coyle being looked at(he's liked by Dalglish)


Lfc transfers:

funds raised:– 51mil

nemeth–loan return
riise–2mil + dossena

chelsea to bid for pato and pirlo
man u to sign a centre back
arsenal are looking at huntelaar and viera
tottenham could also loose huddlestone with bolton, aston villa, west ham and liverpool interested.


Barcelona are ready to make a £85 million bid for wayne rooney

Man City to bid for Ribery, Di Maria, Edin Dzeko, Moussa Sissoko

Liverpool to make bid for Lassana Diarra

Valencia to make bid for Roman Pavlyuchenko

United might replace Rio Ferdinand with Simon Kjaer



ITFCFan. i do have news about Ipswich they will give Keane till December next season 2010 too change things around as they do see him as there man. The board are thinking he can do for them as to what he did for Sunderland a few years ago. Results depending!!!! this is the truth Bryan Robson told me so at a sportsman's dinner


Even if Liverpool win against Birmingham, Rafa will still be sacked by the board next wednesday. He wll be replaced by Kenny Dalglish for the remainder of the season and then Martin O'Neill will take over and bring Ashley Young and Gabby Agbonlahor with him


I have a good reason to believe Benni McCarthy will join Burley in January for £3m.
Liverpool to get an extra £15m to spend in January. Rafa will opt to bring Pandev in now for £3m. Huddlestone will also join, £2m + Lucas. With the £10m remaining a cheeky bid for Silva will be made, with Benayoun used as a part–exchange. This could actually be accepted as Yossi is highly rated over in Spain. Outs will see Voronin join Hertha for £2m. His recent performances halving his value. Babel will join either Ajax or surprisingly Wigan on loan to boost his World Cup bid. Degen to leave on loan to Cardiff or Preston.
In the summer Hicks and Gillett will more than likely be bought out, leaving Rafa with around £40m to spend. Aguero will be bought for £35m + Babel straight away. Mascherano has agreed a contract with Barca and a £45m deal is in place. So £50m left and Sinama–Pongolle will make a surprise move back to Anfield for £15m. This is because he qualifies as a player who was trained by Liverpool in Europe. Micah Richards and Michael Johnson could arrive for a combined fee of £15m and Juan Vargas is being monitored for £8m + Aurelio. Jesus Gamez will join for £7m. Dzagoev will join for £10m and Xabi Prieto will arrive for £6m. Finally expect to se moves for both Angel Di Maria and surprisingly Michael Owen. He joine United to boost his World Cup hopes, which have failed so he sees no reason to damage his reputation anymore. Degen will leave for £4m, Babel to leave for £10m. El Zhar out for 500k. N'Gog, Pacheco, Buchtmann, Amoo, Eccleston, Gulacsi, Ayala and Nemeth all to join Championship clubs on loan.


Man United NEWS!!!

SAF will not buy or sell this January window. He will assess his squad after the '09–'10 season. If we don't win the either the Champions league or Premier league then he will buy and sell several players next summer. The possibilities are;
1. Robinho, Striker/Midfielder (if he is still with City next summer)
2. Gennaro Gattuso, Midfielder (Gattuso had a talk way back with SAF about moving to Old Trafford and to be a mentor for kiko macheda )
3. Daniele De Rossi, Midfielder (if Gattuso decide to stay in Italy)
4. André–Pierre Gignac, Striker (had talks with SAF and D. Gill last summer before the talks A.P. Gignac committed to with Toulouse)
5.Per Mertesacker of Werder Breman, center–back (SAF and assistants had seen his tapes)
6. Igor Vladimirovich Akinfeev, keeper (if the price is right for CSKA)

1. Park Ji–Sung
2. Owen Hargreaves
3. Edwin Van De Sar (retire)

The rift between Kuszchak and


Rafa will only have £5m plus sales to work with this January. Ryan Babel will be sold for £5m to Lazio, Albert Riera will be sold for £14m to already agreed in the summer, Andriy Voronin will return to Germany with Hamburg and Hertha leading the chase, Wolfsburg and Leverkusen are both interested as well, £4m the fee and Martin Skrtel will join Juventus for £12m. This will give Rafa about £40m to spend in January. Juan Mata will arrive for £17m, he is really close with Torres and he has convinced him to reject Barcelona and join the Merseysiders. Simon Kjaer will join Daniel Agger as he has convinced him to come to Liverpool and reject the likes of AC Milan and Juventus, Rafa will meet his buy out clause of £6m and Luis Suarez's fantastic form this season will see him in Reds jersey after signing for £17m


HEARTS will sign Sunderland striker Roy O'Donovan in January. O'Donovan had been close to joining Hearts in the summer but a pay off deal between Sunderland and O'Donovan could not be agreed, however a compromise has now been reached.
According to my source at yesterdays game Hearts have agreed a deal with former midfielder Samuel Camazzola.He will join in January once his current contract in Norway expires.
Finally Vladimir Romanov has been in discussions with Litex over their highly rated striker Ivelin Popov. The young Bulgarian internationalist is managed by ex boss Angel Chervenkov and is out of contract at the end of the season and Romanov is desperate to sign the player.
Jose Goncalves will leave the club in January to join Middlesbrough. Gordon Strachan has had the player watched several times and wanted to sign the player for Celtic before he joined Hearts however Celtic were put off by the size of the transfer fee and wages.


((( AFC Bulletin )))

Fran Merida is unlikley 2 leave AFC as he's 2 sign a new 2 year deal with AFC , AW has said so . Its heard AW may move 4 AC Milan striker Huntelaar as AC Milan are selling Klass 4 cut price come Jan , AW is also interested in Wolfsburg player Bosnian starlet Zvjezdan Misimovic . AW 2 give an offer 2 Boltan 4 defender Gary Cahill 2 replace Senderos .


Man Utd – Silva is basically in and will probably be playing in LM instead of Ryan Giggs, Villa is looking more likely as he prefers a move to man utd to chelsea. Akinfeev or Adler will be on SAF list and he will keep scouts in Moscow following the progress of Krasic and maybe a sneaky deal for di Maria in place. Nani will be given one more season, carrick isn't going nor welbeck but if ferdinand continues he'll be out, rooney isn't going to madrid after pledging his life to the club but expect chelsea to land aguero if they don't get villa


I can not believe that stupid attention seeking people will still try to link Fernadono Torres with either Man Utd or Real Madrid...niether is EVER going to happen...EVER EVER. They are the two last teams he would ever join!...its like linking Gary Neville to Liverpool! so lets nip it in the bud for good you stupid mancs!!! he's a born atletico madrid fan too!. Mascherano will join barca i have no doubt, plus I feel Albert Reiera's future is glum....I have heard from more than one source he's already set on a move back to spain....px with mata? I don't know but expect to see him transfered.
