QPR want Ian holloway! This can't happen please don't go Ian we need you at Blackpool!!!, plus norwich are going to bid 6 million for Matt Phillips!:/(11)(19)Can see this happening(Holloway)Norwich ain't got £6mThey have got £6million,but it's unlikely Paul Lambert will shell out that much.Though he has great potential that figure is over the top,in my opinion.The one I think is a class act is Robert Snodgrass,but we all know how tight Ken Bates is.Stupid this isn't gonna happen, it will be Hughes possibly with a decent assistantMatt phillips is not worth that much, he may come to norwich but not 4 that money!

Rochdale will appoint current caretaker assistant manager Ryan Kidd, as their new manager on a one and a half year deal.

anyone heard anything on fraser forster coming back perminently. celtic have first refusal but i think we can outbid the. i stay in glasgow and he has been brilliant against udinese athletico and rangers and ok some rubbish teams too. ruddy has been good but this guy could win us plenty more points than ruddy.(3)(8)I'm pretty sure there's a clause that celtic have for first refusal and a set price of £2m. sorry palRuddy is a far better keeper. With an England call up soon 2 follow. Frazier was great 4 us in league 1 but there is a massive jump 2 the prem. ruddy has been great so far. You don't know what your talking aboutIs this the same John Ruddy who was rubbish with Motherwell?!?! Very prone to a clanger, and I see he's not kept a clean sheet this year in the EPL... Forster is far better than Ruddy

08 Jan 2012 21:48:28
The four main names in the frame for the QPR job are Sven Goran Erikson, Paolo Di Canio, Ray Wilkins and Alan Curbishley(10)(22)Although the favourite is mark hughesMark Hughes is favourite apparently, we shall see.Let ray wilkins take over and bring them back where they belong the championship lolEven if you had ferguson qpr would still go downAlan Curbishley should get the job. a very under-rated manager suited for a mid league club in the prem. would do well with QPRLike to see eriksonI would be very surprised if any of these names are in the frame. Why would QPR want Sven when Leicester didn't?, Di Canio is completely unproven, Ray Wilkins is a coach and pundit not a manager, Alan Curbishley had a good little spell 10 years ago at Charlton but what since? QPR doomed to relegation if any of these people are appointed manager.I don't want any of these names it's going to be Hughes worst appointment would be Sven please noooooooooooDi canio isnt in the frame as he wont leave swindon during this season."Alan Curbishley had a good little spell 10 years ago at Charlton" A good little spell! He managed a prem team on a shoestring for 7 seasons go get some knowledge!

Celtic will only allow Gary Hooper to join Southampton if they are successful in their bid to land Huddersfield Town hot-shot Jordan Rhodes.

Southampton had a £3m bid rejected by The Hoops earlier on today - whilst the Glasgow based club are expected to offer upwards of £6m for The Terriers Scotland international within the next few days.(7)(20)Good business if true, but im sure a mid-bottom table EPL side will pay well over the odds for this guy!Southampton are really serious title contenders and are not willing to relinquish our top spot in the championship easily. We are willing to , and have the money to buy decent players that fit our club style a and will definately pay over the oddds for mediocre players.
to all you people out there esp. bha idiots that think you are the better or even (haha) bigger club on the south coast, this space.Southampton have only enquired and have NOT bid for Hooper .... this is a speculative journalist story after learning that Hooper was mentioned in meetinfgs when they signed Jos Houiveld . Celtic have said he is not for sale but I have learnt today that a bid of 5.5 million or more will be accepted for Hooper if was made from Southampton . It is now down to the south coast side to work out if he is the best man they can get for that amount of money. Celtic have a loan option on someone from EPL if Hooper is sold.Absolute garbage!

hooper will not be sold in this window, and especially not for a measly 5m!

get real, people are already talking about an unproven BOY (rhodes) costing upwards of 8m, yet hooper has proven his worth in the championship, done it against top quality european sides, and is top scorer in the spl, yet is still worth less lol....yer all having a giraffe

Ross turnbull is about to sign for Ipswich for a fee believed to be in the region of 750,000 Jewell was interested in reading keeper Alex McCarthy but with disagreement over a recall clause jewell has moved on expect turnbull to sign on between Tuesday and Thursday! Good reliable source!(8)(7)Neil warnock set for takeover at ipswich jewell will be sacked with no surprise to many fans with the recent runs of results unacceptable!

First in the door will be Jay boothroyd!Oh and Alex McCarthy has signed for Ipswich 3 month dealMcCarthy has signed a loan deal with Ipswich until the end of the season, but can be recalled by Reading with 24 hour notice.

"Vedran Corluka is wanted by Stoke City."

"They might, dont think Charlie is very good at handball or fouling, so might not fit in."

I don't know, Crouchy seems to be pretty well settled or have you bitter Spurs fans forgot that Crouch handballed from behind the goal line last season? Same ref as well; obviously felt a bit guilty.(8)(8)Happy that you are so overwhelmed by having a lot of our players we wanted rid of, in the Land of the Giants.Westham are interested alsoHaha.. Brilliant replyDo stoke want any more of our team members payluchenko, krancjar, kyle naughton, cudicini


08 Jan 2012 21:13:36
Falkirk will take Rangers kid John Fleck on loan for the rest of the season.(2)(17)Why would he go to Falkirk? Blackpool and Sheff Utd are after himHe's a stone overweightHe is going nowhere,with Rangers injury crisis just now.AllyHis move to Blackpool and Sheffield United fell through so Falkirk made a bid!His move fell through,cos Lafferty got injured.So we never let him go to Blackpool.It will be back on again,if we get players in.He wont go to Falkirk,if he can get to move to England.Dont get me wrong,I actually rate division one.Charlie Adam came back a better player,after we loaned him to St Mirren,and Ross County.A.MI AM FROM GLASGOW I AM A RANGERS FAN I SAY LET FLECK GO TO FALKIRK ASLONG AS WE GET FARID EL ALLAGUI WE DNT NEED O'CONNOR OR SANDAZA WHEN JELAVIC GOES WE NEED ALLAGUINo chance with Lafferty out injured

West Brom's Chris Wood was at Bristol City's training ground today. Deal to be done by the end of the week... (source from the training ground)

But then another of my sources informed me that he was thinking of extending his loan at Birmingham if Hughton could guarantee him game time.(4)(18)


08 Jan 2012 20:53:48
If Huddersfield want Zoko it would be handy to sigh Lee Miller with him zoko has scored more in 6 games than he has scored in nearly every season, Millee is twice the player of Danny Graham. £2 Million good starting point for pair. We will probley through in Craig Curran for free you need a might need a joke when you do not go up(2)(5)


08 Jan 2012 20:50:50
I love all the big licks from you english. All your won't last for ever. Talk of 2 horse race. Man U Chelsea ring a bell? Morons. We may have 3 billionaires on our board but whybare we not competing with epl teams? look where it got rangers trying to compete with them? We get around 3 million for winning the title. Due to tv and sponsorships in England you get more formgettin relegated. It's true there is no comparison with the leagues but given the chance and funds both the old firm would flourish in the premiership. As it has been said though turkeys don't vote for Christmas so not much chance of us getting in. In find it is funny though that you compare everton wolves to Celtic and rangers. Neither could spell Europe let alone tell you what it is to compete on that front. Celtic are one of the only clubs in Europe who are in the black. Rant over!(11)(25)If you're going to talk about spelling at least spell check your own work - dipstick.
Incidentally I love the passion of the Scots and would welcome you into the English Leagues but I believe you should have to prove yourself by going up via the championship.
If you believe you are good enough you won't mind the step down for a season.Couldn't have put it any better myself.Celtic are in debt you muppetIs this the Wolves who beat you in pre-season without breaking a sweat?Celtic are in debt? certainly not to the tune of the EPLs finest do your research willybhoyWolves, lol pre season friendly gotta laugh at that 1And is that the everton that were in the Europa league in 2010..and made it to the last 32 round along with Fulham......remind where celtic finished oh yes out at group stages...Wolves beat Celtic Reserves Im afraid, check out the team sheet,Celtic are £35 million pounds in debt.I know as I have shares in them.A.MEnglish Football is about to fall flat on its face , you mark my words . Debt ridden leagues , wait till UEFA fair play system comes in .
CelticMattThe Europa league? The same Europa league the both Celtic and Rangers have reached the final in the last 8 years? Beating English teams on the way. Or what about Celtic beating man utd, juventus or AC Milan in the champions league? Did fulham or everton do that?Shut up with your £35 million in debt, I actually do own shares and there is a debt of a couple of million! ClownCeltic are £800,000 in debt. not £35,000,000. eejit.Same Europa league u went out I'n the fist round to a unheard of team!! Celtic are a big club I'n Scotland but do u seriously think if you did join the epl you would take over!! Lol if you do u are more deluded than u sound.. up the wolvesOh and how many champions league finals have Celtic reached I'n the last 8 years? Think there's been an English club I'n the final nearly every season beating Celtic and rangers on the way!! Well when their I'n it lol!!Erm, I'm not a fan but I'm pretty sure Fulham beat Juventus & a host of other top european sides on their way to the final not so long ago.

Also, Rangers & Celtic are pretty much guaranteed euro qualification playing what is effectively English league 1 standard competition.Celtic are in £35 million quid worth off debt,both off you are wrong.A MTop post OP

i'm fed up with the arrogance of the english, they truly are living in their own wee secular bubble, none of them have a clue just how big a club celtic are, if they would only listen to people who know what they're talking about, ie players and managers who come to play us, they would realise just how big a club we are.

unfortunately, sky's money has ruined the game and clouded the judgement of the already obnoxious, elitist, secular english.

i honestly cant wait till the bubble bursts and you have to live within your means, there's no way teams like wolves, fulham, and about 15 others can generate the kind of money that will conform to the fair play rules.

man u, liverpool and arsenal are the only truly global brands in england, the rest are only known in the crappy towns and villages in which they occupy.

and yes, celtics debt stands at 800k, unlike a certain epl teams £750m!No one mentioned that the statement was everton couldn't even spell europe let alone tell you what is like to compete in it, I'm just putting you right pal. What about Fulham 2010 and Middlesborough 2006 reaching the final or are they too lowly to mention not being the massive clubs you are (sarcasm). Lets face it two places in Europe from SPL shouldn't be to difficult for the OF to get in should it.Celtic in 35mil debt .. Omg worst I've heard yet!Celtic also beat barcelona at Celtic park and 0-0 on return leg! Clowns out there think low average teams like wolves r better than Celtic! On their day Celtic would beat most EPL teams, and the past years it's a FACT!Wolves for the dropAs a Celic fan, op is unfair to have a go at epl; any club would happily take big tv money given the chance. Spl was never good enough in the first place at the beginning of tv deals. It only makes half -maybe more- of the money it does due to old firm.

However old firm would be a great addition to epl IMO, bringing in approximately 20 million worldwide fans, combined between the 2, ibrox (50000+ capacity) and Celtic park (60000+ capacity). Not to mention even better tv deals due to celtic's influence in countries such as USA, Mexico and japan (japan estimated to have over 1 mil Celtic fans due to nakamura having played).

I think however it would only be fair to enter at championship.

Old firm has completely outgrown the spl, and has a huge amount to offer English football. Like it or not, the old firm is s global brand.I disagree that the OP is unfair at having a go....just read the BS regularly spouted on here, the fact is, the epl aint all that, nor is it competitive. what it is, is rich, but when you have diddies like carroll going for 35m, then all credibility is blown right out the water.

i agree that were we to join, and i think it's only a matter of time before sky push for it, we should enter the championship and earn our place at the top table

i would also say that were that to happen, celtic could expand the stadium to 80,000+ capacity and fill it many english teams could do that?I wouldn't go on too much about the ability to spell correctly or not, you are obviously a bitter and twisted individual who has a grudge to bear with the elite teams in England. You would struggle to survive in the championship let alone the premier league.Firstly Wolves are in the black by a substantial amount. They may not be as big a club as Celtic but still have a proud history and a loyal fanbase. When the financial tumoil overcomes the Premier league Wolves will have far less to lose than most other clubs.
Secondly if the old firm wish to play in the English league they should be welcomed. However they should start somewhere around Conference level and earn a place alongside the professional clubs. Who would you relegate from the Championship to give them a place in that league? and how would you respond to the lawsuits that would no doubt follow from affected clubs?There are only a couple of clubs I'n the prem who are not I'n debt and wolves are 1 of them. I think Celtic would struggle I'n the championship to be honest.On what is the basis that celtic would struggle in the epl?

past results against liverpool, man u, blackburn etc have proven we can handle ourselves and are no less of a match for the so-called big how can anyone suggest we would struggle? in fact, given access to the same amount of money and the contrary is more likely, that's the real reason why the suggestion keeps getting thrown outThe Premiership is English. Why would a Scottish team play in the English league? Maybe get someone to sort out the Scottish league and make it into the fabulous product that the Premiership is...
Geez get real...Last english manager to win the premiership??
how many english players in Man Utd,Man City,Arsenal,chelsea??

yeah i can see where your coming from calling them english teams in the english premiership

to even things up a little.....Celtic dont have a scot in their staring line up

its allll stIt's not about being arrogant, it's about having a competitive league not a 2 team league, how exciting it must be for you having 4 important games a season.Celtic don't have a scot in their starting line up??

stalybridge celtic maybe, but Celtic FC have Brown, Forrest & Mulgrew all 1st names on the teamsheet you plank!But you dont have a competitive league, and you have exactly the same 2 team league as the spl that you keep berating

lets face it, if it's not man u, its chelski....the rest are akin to hearts, dundee utd etc in terms of chances of winning the leagueSwansea city are fropm wales and are in the EPL...So you've beaten some big teams you fail to mention the minnows that have constantly embarressed you in europe swings and roundabouts palMickey mouse league ........ end ofMost Championship teams could compete comfortably in the SPL. Its not English arrogance its just fact.Ref swansea check the history of why welsh clubs are in english leagues it might enlighten you before you say something daft googles a wonderful toolScotsman here (neither a Celtic or Rangers fan) - of course they would struggle in the Championship, due initially to lack of money and, as a result, an initial inability to attract players of the stature of those who choose to play at Manchester, Arsenal, Tottenham etc etc..
It would take them probably 2 - 3 seasons to gain promotion to EPL where again they would undoubtedly struggle. However, once the dust settled and they became financially stronger, I would imagine they would both manage to hold mid table positions - who knows, they may end up just above Wolves & Everton. {Ed003's Note - You play for a different affiliation! this obsession with comparison is doing my nut in !! }Personally I wouldn't mind seeing them down here, it would be good to see if they could actually compete and they're far too big for the rest of the Scottish teams but has said before they need to come in at Championship level and prove themselves, and even at that level the money they would earn from promotion would be higher than what they get in the SPL10 Jan 2012 08:35:43

Wolves are set to sign Chelsea young defender Patrick Van Aanholt, on loan until the end of the season.(11)(11)Where are your source mate. he is currently on loan at wigan you numptyEven though hes at wiganNope, we (Wigan) terminated his loan this week so this could happen especially with us apparently chasing ElikobiHe has returned to Chelsea so who is the person ?No , he has returned to chelseaHis Wigan loan deal was cancelled Friday .............numptyAll 3 parties agreed to terminate his loan at wiganI can't see Wolves wanting to let Elokobi go to another relegation rival and then replacing him with the lad who Wigan terminated a loan on to chase Elokobi in the first place. Just doesn't make any sense.I love people who come on here and verbally abuse others calling them childish names. Come on fellas - grow up! What does make sense in football anyway? when you've got big money and over inflated egos - nothing does, {Ed025's Note - well said mate..


08 Jan 2012 20:41:30
hands off pl, qpr. he is staying here at norwich where he wants to finish off the job hes started,1 to get us into the premiership, 2, to keep us there. as ive said earlier he will probably manage man utd with a former legend in 3 years time. gotta feeling we will buy 1 player only this month. hope its an experienced defender. good luck in div 1 next season ipst. ha haa!!!!!!!!!(6)(4)Again another Norwich fan who seems a bit obsessed with us. It's really rather flattering that your teams doing great but you still have to mention us! Thanks! LOLThanks for the well wishes, but we wont be going down, mid table finishYou wish!


08 Jan 2012 20:41:21

08 Jan 2012 20:31:38
Sunderland have accepted bids for two of their players.
Playmaker Stephane Sessegnon, is reportedly unhappy at Sunderland as he feels it is hard to settle and the Benin international looks set to talk to French side Nice. The former PSG player is keen on a move back to France and is set to sign a loan deal until the end of the season, with a view to a full time contract.
Another set to leave is left sided player Kieran Richardson. Richardson is subject of a bid from Manchester City and could join on a one and a half year deal, worth £80,000 a week.(7)(23)Don't be so stupid Richardson would never get in man city's sideI have got to agree with the fellows comment thereDont disagree that player would want to leave Sunderland (who wouldn't), but Richardson worth 80k a week, and to ManC what a joke. maybe 80k a year as towel boy.Sessegnon is one of the most consistent players in the premier league this season and I would think he would attract a better club than nice?? I'm not buying thisRichardson to man city? I think someone still drunk from new year but they can have him no bother. Sess could be right been unhappy for a while so very likelyRichardson is garbage,getting money for him will be a bonus,we need a proper left back,I would sell Sess for a profit.Hot n cold player,dribbling skills ok,but tries to take too many on & loses it and he can't shoot for toffee


08 Jan 2012 20:30:59
jordan rhodes to hold talkes with newcastle tomorrow morning after a 6 mil bid was accepted (the only club clark was happy with him going to) if he does go it will depend on the future of demba ba to what role he will have in the team (that could be the thing that keeps him at huddersfield for now)(6)(24)Newcastle don't even need rhodes but a championship club mightDon't think Rhodes is good enough yet. Another year of progress and maybe!!Would love to see Rhodes come, one for the future for sureRhodes back to his roots, Ipswich maybe LOLOnly team clark would want him 2 go to he'll go norwich i think n im from the hudds

08 Jan 2012 20:28:35

The Italian international is keen on a move away from underachieving Roma and could sign a four and a half year deal with the Italian table toppers.(10)(8)MILAN have NO MONEY.that's why they cant buy TEVEZ.AC Milan have not indicated any interest in any player other than Carlos Tevez. Daniele De Rossi is believed to be staying at Roma for the foreseeable future after contract talks got back on track.


08 Jan 2012 20:27:15
Scott Allan to sign for West Brom on Monday for a cheap 400-800k. Cox is not going anywhere as part of the deal or another deal. Don't expect Jelavic to be coming to West Brom. Rumours about Peter Whittingham and Ricky Lambert are un-true although the Nicky Maynard rumours are infact true. But there are a number of Premier League Clubs looking at him. Unlike all the other rubbish on here this is all true. I wouldn't lie... did I mention I work CLOSELY with Roy Hodgson and Jerremy Peace!!(12)(3)


08 Jan 2012 20:24:02

Aston Villa have made a bid for Brighton winger Craig Noone. Noon has been superb for the Championship side this season and has interested a number of Championship rivals. Alex McLeish has put a bid together, worth around £2.5 million, and Gus Poyet has already held a meeting with Noone regarding what to do with the bid.(6)(13)I am a brighton fan and i cant see this move happening. Reason being is because i saw gus poyet and he said he does not want to sell his young talent

Billy Sharp will only move to a club that allows him to stay at his current home just south of Sheffield.(7)(7)In that case he would have to be on 1 grand a week at Leeds as there is no other championship/prem team in the Yorkshire regionEr never heard of barnsley or hull then??Leicester is a hour down the M1, so no prob.Ever heard of the M1? Leicester is a real possibility for Sharp, less than an hour from Sheffield. Pearson won't force Sharp to move home, Pearson himself lives in Sheffield!

Blackpool have accepted a 3m bid for Matty Phillips from Preston North End.(9)(27)PNE haven't got that sort of cash. If they did have 3mill to spend I'm sure they need 3-4 players rather than just the 1So let me get this right. Preston have got 3 mill to spend.
A player worth 3 Million has decided to leave a team fighting for promotion to the premier league and drop down to League 1.
I'm guessing you don't get out much mate.I have never laughed so much.If that happens i'll suck my socks!What next tevez signs 5 year contract at

We are in the npower Championship where we belong at the moment. No Leeds fan worth their salt will tell you anything otherwise. Bates says that stuff about promotion every season.

And, wait, how are you going to get in the play-offs? You'll need Ian Holloway and a load of tangerine-coloured shirts to pull that off, bud.

McCarthy - best goalkeeper in the championship.
As a Leeds fan I'd buy McCarthy tomorrow (if we could afford him and he was available).
Future England keeper mark my words.Yes Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy.


08 Jan 2012 19:11:59
Jordan Rhodes to be a west ham player by the end of the window(12)(29)No way chairman says we dont need the moneyWestham will be the only team to folk out 5m on d1 player.If he did want to go( and we dont need to sell him) then a bigger club than west ham would have to come in for him, with more money, before the club or jordan would even think about itIf he goes to a so called bigger club than westham he will never be a first team regular a hammer he would play all the time when fit.Wake up Huddersfield fans - he might have scored a bag full of goals in the pub standard league but was sold by Ipswich to you for buttons because he could not hack it higher up - ok he is older and better but £5m is all of the money - if anyone puts anything like that on the table (and £20k per week for the player) you won't see him for dust.Think it would take at least 7 mill bid with add ons and sell on clause.
If I was Huddersfield I'd be interested in selling him to a side that was willing to loan him back for rest of season.he could go to the prem and west ham think he'd want to go there? cuteRhodes will not go to a team higher that the championship.. Too bigger jump and a risk for a Prem side7 mill not exactly a big risk by prem standards for a striker.No one in p/league bottom 10 have got 7m, top 10 not good enough.He admitted he is a celtic supporter
so i reckon he would choose celtic over any championship/ bottom half premiership team!Ag ag ag @ Celtic, they haven't got £70,000 let alone £7m


08 Jan 2012 19:17:29
qpr sack warnock(20)(8)That's QPR relegated then, especially if Hughes or Sven replace him.

Southampton made a enquiry to get Gary Hooper from Celtic because he is a natural goal scorer and nigel new him from his Scunthorpe days and gets on with him, plus never wanted to sell him .... :D :D Dont believe me check our this link ;) less believable that its in the daily record, they tend to try and unsettle players ie sandaza to rangers. wonder who they are playin next week!Would be a great signing, sadly not going to happen. And it seems like we've missed our chance to get Sharp (if we were interested that is).what you talking about?The were talking about the Spainaird signing for us last night in Sportscene.Pat Nevin in fact who played for you.Suppose its another conspiracy,that Rangers would want the SPL top goal scorer.Get a grip off your self.If hooper leaves it will be for a EPL team hes to good for the championshipPat nevin played for who?
rangers would want the spl top goal scorer? who is that hooper?I think u will find that Nikica Jelavic is top goal scorer in scotland the now top leagueRangers already have the top goalscorer @Jelavic^^ Not for long!Hooper has most goals in all comps this season on 15 then jelavic and stokes on 14. so u can understand their interest!

Qatari side Umm Salal, are expected to complete the signing of Premier League target Pascal Feindouno, in the next few hours. The Guinea international was recently released by Swiss side FC Sion, and could sign a one and a half year lucrative deal.(5)(1)


08 Jan 2012 18:42:52
Tony Fernandes has already spoken to Sven Goran-Eriksson about the possibilty of taking over from Neil Warnock.(14)(7)Definitely going down. When will these Chairman realise Sven is actually useless.As much as BCFC loved to wind him up, I did have a lot of respect for Neil Warnock.He is a good manager and reckon he deserved better.That would meen going down.that guy is a dudClearly another chairman who has no idea what makes a good manager, If you chuck enough cash at Sven, he can get you players through the door, but you don't win games by fielding 11 players on 50K/wk. Why do you think Newcastle let Barton go on a free, they were glad to be rid of the so called ' best English midfielder' playing in premier league, then you went for Shaun Wright Phillips, big name, big salary and what has he really done so far, neither have set the league alight.
Warnock has always shown a lack of respect ,recent examples Holt, Van Persie, and more recently Johnson, accusing all of being cheats, which clearly shows he does not respect other teams or managers and always blames the ref, the other team, the linesman, and sometimes even his own players. Its never his fault.
In my opinion he has only ever been average and won't be any loss to the premier league.Very well said, too many excuses. If maybes and scapegoats won points he would be called ' Sir Neil ' and fergie would be assistant manager at St Mirren !Not going to happen will be Sparky, bad decision getting rid of Warnock but Fernandes ain't that stupid, I hope


08 Jan 2012 18:41:02
LA Galaxy are set to make a £1.5 million bid for West Brom striker Simon Cox, as the MLS side look for recruitments during their pre season.(5)(14)WBA manager Roy Hodgson said Cox is going no where.You are right. Is that his career thats going nowhere?Who posts this kinda on here! cox wants first team football to give him a chance in the euro's! as far as im aware the MLS season has finished, and not competative enough for him 2 get into the national side even if he is in form!

08 Jan 2012 18:36:50
Premier League side QPR, are keen to sign Ivar Ingimarsson. Tony Fernandes, who is the owner of Rangers, was keen to sign the former Iceland defender and the reason behind the Neil Warnock sacking was due to this transfer. The former Reading and Ispwich centre half has been in talks with Fernandes the last few days without Warnock knowing, and the former Sheffield United manager lost his patience.(4)(13)Rubbish - if he was not good enough for Ipswich in Championship there is no way he is anywhere good enough for Premiership. He had his contract terminated by Ipswich because he was so bad.


08 Jan 2012 18:34:38
Now warnock gone at QPR Jay bothroyd will be going along with gabbidon and others(12)(3)Easier said and done, when you sign players on inflated wages that are above their real worth, its pretty difficult to get them out since most clubs will not pay wages to that level.
Bothroyd, Gabbidon, Barton, SWP, DJ Cambell are all on inflated wages if the newspapers are to be believed. Then Bridge and Alan Smith were being touted to come to QPR, both of whom have been sitting in the stands for over a year, raking in huge salaries at clubs where they are clearly not wanted.Why do some teams throw money at players when they join on a free. I'm sure bothroyd will be more than happy sitting on the bench getting his 25k per week. He had some good games at Cardiff but a few of my mates there said he could be lazy for 60% of the game. Who ever goes to QPR is going to have a hell of a job sorting things out there with the number of players already there. I'm sure there will be plenty of players going out on loan. I reckon bothroyd will go to Ipswich and gabbidon to Charlton. Just my opinion.Now Warnock has gone any chance of Toomy Smith back to Watford?With the exception of Barton & SWP these players are on Prem wages so talking rubbish. Bothroyd, Campbell & Gabbidon all signed before the take over which was sad because probably non of them would have been purchased/obtained otherwise. Apart from DJ who has been unlucky through injury hope the others go. Celtic are sniffing round Bothroyd


08 Jan 2012 18:32:48

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson, is set to sign Northern Irish youngster Alex Coffey, from Manchester United on a free transfer. The midfielder was told he can find a new club and Pearson is keen to sign the young playmaker.(0)(12)His name is john coffey and burnley has first refusal on himWasn't he the fella in the film "the green mile"?No its a different players. john COFIE, is ghanian who joined united few years ago and is a striker. this lad is northern irish and a midfielder

08 Jan 2012 18:28:22
Ipswich to offer pacy Kieran dyer a final swansong back at portman rd,bringing back memories of carving open defences!(1)(12)Not fit - out for season I think.Don't think it's possible to carve open defences when your sat on the treatment table...Sounds about right he is out for the seasonIsn't he another one of Warnock's signing disasters, big money, always likely to be on the sick list, no wonder he's gone.Yeah seems legit, carve open in a wheelchair perhaps?He hasn't had pace since he last graced the blue of the Tractor Boys. I've seen players move quicker coming out of the tunnel. So you're signing a slug with terminal injuries. I suppose he'll still get through Leeds' defence.


08 Jan 2012 18:04:34

Brighton have made a surprise enquiry about Birmingham young winger Nathan Redmond. Gus Poyet is keen to take the youngster to AMEX but may be out off by the price tag. The England under 18 winger is wanted by a number of Premier League clubs but Poyet has been told that he will be given funds this month and has made an approach for Redmond.(1)(16)A possibility put the premier league clubs have the upper hand on signing himWow, were u the joker of your class. since when do BRIGHTON have £12 million. plus why would hughton sell redmond to a division rival. its unheard of.Maybe because Birmingham will soon be skint when there owner gets banged up. Could be another Portsmouth12 million??............... yh right think his price tag is over realistic there, and he would let him come to brighton as we are a bigger club!HAHA, how the hell are brighton a bigger club.. tell me... how many trophies have you won.. how many years have you spent in the premier league or top flight in the past 20 years? who has had the bigger players?
who has the most history? who was the first english club to make it to the european cup - which is now the champions league incase your deluded self didnt know!Have you been playing too much football manager?


08 Jan 2012 18:24:36
Hibernian are to take Daniel Kearns on loan. Kearns will play the attacking midfield role for Hibs(5)(7)It just what we needHe is too much of an important role for Peterborough to go out on loan and Fergie loves him. Usually players go out on loan in Jan so they can get a move in the summer, but he only signed a 4 year deal past summer so this is unlikely.


08 Jan 2012 18:24:38

Blackburn Rovers are set to make a £12 million bid for Scotland and Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor as they look for competition in the goalkeeping spots.(2)(30)Blackburn haven't got £12, never mind £12 Mill to waste on an average keeper12m? is that chickens eggs?£12 mil? Not a chance he's worth that! Maybe 8 and rangers are in such a mess they'd probably take 6 mil (help try and pay the taxman)Mcgrogor best brittish goalie£6m for a spl player?, its a diddy league 1.75 should secure himGood keeper look around some of the numptys in epl,better than a lot of themWonder what Mr Robinson would make of that. The reserve keeper is good enough as wellPlease try to keep your rumour's credible,
firstly a Scottish goalkeeper worth 12M mind you considering what Man U paid for De Gea £17.5M wasn't it, maybe he could be worth it... ha ha
Seriously Blackburn owners to spend 12M on one player, what are you smoking, and can I get some ?Allan mcgregor is on a par with your over hyped joe hartLOL at the guy saying McGregor is better than most premier league keepers. Thats what they said about Craig Gordon and now he's a sub at a mediocre team.Craig Gordon to Sunderland for £9m and mcgregor is twice as good. The rumour is poor though, blackburn are going down...Love it ! SPL is a micky mouse league ! Look at some of the teams in it ! Hooper is a superstar at celtic... He couldnt even crack it in the championship !Gordon still has the number 1 shirt at Sunderland.He has played his first reserve game,after fighting back from injury.He only lost his place,as he has had three bad injuries.In a short space of time.As for McGregor he has been linked with Spanish clubs before,and EPL ones to.Rangers wont sell him on the cheap.Rangers dont owe the banks anything.Whyte bought us and cleared the debts.The debts now owed to him.And the HRMC case has not happened yet.Its not a certainty that is will be lost.And yet people talk on here,as if its happened.And that Rangers lost the case.Un less they have a crystal ball.I suggest that they consintrate on there own teams.AllyWhat are you on about you dafty, Hooper couldn't hack it in the championship? Think you'll find he scored 19 in the championship the 2009/10! Muppet

Lukas Jutkiewicz from Coventry too go too Southhampton by the end of next week as he is a life-time Southampton fan and the Saints have been after him since the summer. There main target Nicky Maynard is on his way too West Brom apparently so it makes the Juke deal even more likely.

Also Gael Bigirimana the youngster from Coventry is being chased by Man City and also Liverpool, this has come from within the club and is 100% true

Richard Keogh too bolton is utter rubbish and this rumour has been catorgorically denied by Keogh

As a Cov fan, when we lose Juke and if we lose Gael we might as well pack it in straight away because they are our only sparks of hope.

WATCH THIS SPACE(7)(8)Im watching this space. PUSBBigirmana is hardly a ray of hope, he gets caught on the ball too much and is a very niave footballers atm, good prospect yes but good enough to keep us up noNicky Maynard is not our main Target! Also unlikely Jutkiewicz will be coming south as we are just about to sign Japanese international Tadanari LeeI am a mate of gaels and he told me at this moment in time he is 100% commited to coventry city he is happy here in coventry and dont plan on moving anywhere in the near future

HI ED any news on saints move for gary hooper? {Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any move for Hooper, but I would think any bids would be rebuffed.}(2)(7)No chance of getting hooperStill after the same old duds Saints?Any bids would definitely be rebuffed, Celtic will not sell the SPLs leading goalscorer midway through the championship when they are indeed chasing a treble!Just google Gary Hooper. Its in the Scottish Press and think it was in the Mail. Ed 001 is correct though, its been rebuffed.Im a Rangers fan,Hooper too good for Saints,could play in prem,at middle table team,decent all round striker,better player now than when he arrived in Scotland,but i think he likes where he is.What duds are you speaking about? If your talking about hooper you don't have a clue mateSee i don't think Celtic will be selling the spl's leading goal scorer as he plays for rangers

WATPBecause its in the press does not mean it will happen, the guy is the leading goalscorer in the spl chasing a championship treble so theres no way celtic would do business, sorry to shoot down your rumour but it wont happen!But hes not the leading scorer!?08 Jan 2012 22:05:14
Here it is Ed. Personally I'd love him, but he's not going to join us. Sharp was my first choice but it seems he's off to Leicester.

Sharp will reject Leciester and stay loyal to Rovers and help them avoid relegation!(14)(19)Doubt it if he don't go Leicester he will go elsewhereA hopeful doncaster fanBeing offered 24 grand a week, i admire your optimisim but get real buddyYeah right you wish!24 grand a week for a guy who has done nothing Leicester going for admin or whatHow are we going towards admin you obviously dont know how rich are owners are.(responding to the above) I don't get it when people say that. Owners come and go like weekday busses, unless they're Ken Bates. Leicester are inconsistent, messy, expensive in both transfer fees and wages, and stand little chance now of clinching automatic promotion. I'm sure the owner, who is in charge and makes the calls, unlike you, is more likely to be considering his position, rather than shelling out for another squads worth of players. Personally, I think Leicester will get Sharp, but he won't help them in the slightest. The problem: eight lazy central midfielders, no decent wide-men, unless a Leicester season-ticket holder can correct me.


08 Jan 2012 16:28:41
Jason Puncheon is in part of a deal to finnaly get him out of the club and is reportedly returning to Blackpool for Matty Phillips. Jason Puncheon + 2.5million(12)(15)Saints have been interested in Matt Phillips for a while and tried to sign him when he left Wycombe for Blackpool. Saints do need a right winger with pace and also want rid of Puncheon. And supposedly Holloway is keen on Puncheon so there could be some truth in this rumour. It might take more than £2.5 million plus Jason Puncheon though - and I'm not sure Blackpool need the money.Not again! Do you mean 'reported' on this page below?I've heard this from a mate in blackpool aswell, but more like + 3.5mPhilips will have price tag of no less than £5 million after this weekend and saints won't pay that sort of money not even for someone like Rooney. You don't get any bargains in january it's just panic buying and I am a saints fan

Kirk Broadfoot could be on his way to BCFC, toss up between them and Leeds. Approach made this morning by both,decision by Tuesday.(7)(6)Goodbye big Kirky,decent big guy wholehearted,hope he gets a few quid,never a first team player at Rangers,but big honest pro.Loved it when he danced passed McGeady,priceless.Rangers have injuries and he can play a few posistions.He is crocked to,but I dont know how long for.And he knocked back the EPL,when Blackpool were there.He did not want to leave us then.So I dont see why he would want to move to play in a lesser league.Un less we are pushing him out the door.He is under rated,suppose he needs games.If he wants to get back in the Scotland squad.I wish him well if he does leave.A.MI hope not BCFCs defence is bad enough without Broadfoot making it worse.Blackpool far smaller than the mighty whites FACT!

Nicky Maynard [West Brom] £3M
Damion Stewart [Notts County] Loan
Jamal Campbell-Ryce [Charlton Ath] Undisc'
Lee Johnson [Yeovil] £90K
Jordan Spence [West Ham] Loan Terminated
Development Squad players heading out on loan:
Marlon Jackson [AFC Telford]
Henry Muggeridge [Clevedon Town]
Bobby Reid [AFC Telford]
Aaron Amidi-Holloway [Glouc City]
Joe Edwards wanted by a couple of league 2 clubs but currently injured.


Ricky Foster [Aberdeen] £225K
Stephen Pearson [Derby] Nominal Fee
Ryan Stephenson [Hearts] Free
Andrew Driver [Hearts] Loan
Scott Laird [Stevenage] Undisc'
Francisco Sandaza [St Johnstone] £275K(8)(15)Sandaza has signed a pre contract agrrement with Rangers.And McInnes told radio Scotland,that he has no intention in signing Stevenston or Boyd.Stevo has Middlesburgh interested in him.And it was £250 000 you paid for Foster.I could see you going for Cillian Sheridan on loan for his Bulgarian team.And trying to make a deal for Murray Davidson at St Johnstone.Driver was rubbish yesterday in the Scottish,against a Scottish junioir team,Auchinleck Talbot from Ayrshire.He will need to up his game,if he wants to move in this window.A.MDespite it being widely reported that Bristol City paid £250K for Foster, the figure wasn't that much, up front anyway. Rangers are indeed very intersted in Sandaza, but no deal has been agreed as of yet, hopefully McInnes may be able to convince him. Any move for Francisco will probably depend on Maynards future.Scott laird wont leave stevenage he recently signed a new contract plus hes playing week in week out. you can take ben may from us (stevenage) tho.

Norwich will complete the signing of Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez. Lambert was interested in him before the FA cup match between the two sides and Lambert will only have been impressed that he scored. Also the player in question was mightily impressed by Norwich's style of play and wants to be a part of it. The fee is in the region of £2M with add ons taking the total fee up to £3.5M WATCH THIS SPACE!(7)(13)Think you better check how much Southampton bid in the summer, your not even half way there, zero chance at that type of feeBurnley want nearer £7M for his services I think you'll findSoton offer 4 million for him and fox as well. I don't know what the split was....Please remember that Newspapers constantly over hype Fees being paid, just because its in the press at £4M does not actually mean anything.
I suspect they will accept considerably less than £4M, and the number mentioned seems about rightBUFC agreed 4m with saints back in the summer but Jay didn't want to go
i also understand that the deal is still on the tableIts never actually disclosed with Saints but i remember about £2M for Fox and ultimately £5.5M for RodriguezJay is rumoured to be undergoing negotiations of a contract extension at Burnley, The Burnley Born Striker is also believed to have told the club chairman not to bother accepting offers as he believes his future is at his home town club of which he has supported his whole lifeWe rejected 5 million in pre season, so why would we sell him for less than 5 mlli, also EH wants to build the team around Jay, so I cant see us selling him unless some1 bids between 6-8 mill

We all know he wouldn't actually come out and say "He's not playing as he would be cup-tied which could scupper a move." It could well be he is simply being rested, but no-one will be surprised if he isn't an Iron much longer, and his "being rested" MIGHT be a little clue

He plays every week and is scoring goals, the player is not motivated by money.10 mil, will fail medical, then play with no insurance? LOL get real

As a Saints fan i don't want an 'injury plagued striker'.Hes not good enough for SaintsVery average player!

Antony Pilkington Norwich City to Tottenham Hotspurs- £5m plus Kyle Naughton.

Source: Mate in players' lounge after yesterday's game. Also mentioned on both Clubcall and Eatsleepsport websites too.

Pilkington not on bench yesterday as Spurs didn't want him cup tied.(4)(22)What a load of rubbish! pilko wasnt on the bench as lambert had given him time aswell as john riddy to see his new born babyI agree never going 2 happenHarry can want all he likes but Norwich signed Pilkington on a 3 year contract with a 1 year option so Norwich hold all the cards, the only way I can see this happening is if Norwich get stupid money for him IE 6M+ add on's and Naughton and would then only accept it if he can get Snodgrass in from Leeds and Rhodes from Huddlersfield, selling Pilkington so early would also generate substantial extra funds for Huddersfield so it could be a factor in also trying to persuade Huddersfield to sell Rhodes to Norwich.
Frankly though I think Lambert will reject any move for Pilkington.Norwich hold all the cards?? stupid comment. everyone knows that the clubs with money hold all the cards!!Norwich DO hold all the cards.....trouble is its a full pack of jokersIt is certainly not a stupid comment, Because he is our player for another three years + if Lambert chooses to keep him, and we do not need the cash as Norwich run a pretty tight ship and do not splash millions on gambles to get promoted, so yes Norwich do hold all the cards, not all clubs bend over and take it, clearly you know nothing about Paul Lambert he will make any call on Pilkington's transfer, and if he considers Pilkington essential to maintain premier football he will be going nowhere. Selling him for 10M would make no sense if it costs the club 40M next year in premier payments.
The Lad is just 23 years old and after a really bad injury last season is only now beginning to show how good he can become. Unproven at this level and yet five goals in 16 premier games from a winger.Pilkington has already said he wants to repay the faith to lambert for signing him whilst he had a broken leg! Highly unlikely he'll be going....'my source said this' in other words your mate has made up crap lolLol, good old norwich fans, clutching at any excuse. You ALL at carrow road defo know him personally and how he feels..who could doubt you...M8, I'm not even a teenager yet and I still know that now were in the prem only players and coaches are able to go in the players lounge, not fans. {Ed025's Note - not true mate..i have been in a a friend of a playerI love it how u believe that the players all talk openly about moving clubs to strangers.. and he managed to even get the price wow. why bother even holding press conferences from now onEd, I'm saying you can be a friend but not any oh stranger

Kebe to Leave this Week.
No sign of him as Reading loose shock defeat at home to some Swedenage or something!

Set to sign for Cardiff if noone bid fails again

He's not going to Cardiff. Radio Leicester reporting he will come to Leicester this week.cardiff can't match the wages offered by Leicester.

Leicester may be able to offer more wages but he's more likely to get premiership football at Cardiff or Reading.(8)(3)Cardiff managedvto bank roll some of bellamys wagesbso surely they could afford kebe, unless they got a wage limit this year as chopra etc gone. I'm sure Cardiff main owner worth £700 odd millionI think you'll find that vincent tan cardiffs joint owner is a billionaire and his partner dato chan is worth 700 mil, not bad considering our manager is yet to dip into his transfer kittyWikipedia says Vincent Tan is worth US $1.3bn, which is about £850m

Southampton have had a bid rejected for striker gary hooper(15)(9)My understanding is SFC tested the water at 3.8m and are likely to up to 5mWould love saints to sign him, him and lambert would tear defences apart! Tadanari Lee as back-up as well!Hoopers failed to cut it in the championship before. What makes him worth 5m ? Ridiculous !Hooper failed, what do you know he scored 19 goals in 35 starts. Maynard got the golden boot, he scored 20, but got more starts. Stato ManWhen you say 'failed to cut it' are you forgetting the 19 he scored during his last spell in the Championship, when he was third top scorer?And, no disrespect, playing for Scunthorpe under AdkinsHooper scored 50 goals in 2 seasons for Scunthorpe in the championship..if thats no cutting it then a dont know what is and he will never leave us for a small club try 8 mil and that might get yous to the tableSouthazzzzzzzzzzz Boring seem to be signing everybody.
The bubble has burst fellas play off's at best for you nowAndy carroll scored less goals for newcastle in the championship than hooper did for a Scunthorpe side in the bottom half of the league. Didn't cut it?? Amazing some of the comics posting on this...

Bristol City are reportedly interested in signing unattached Kris Boyd as a possible replacement for Nicky Maynard.

Regarding the situation with Maynard, it is rumored Swansea City are preparing to launch a 2 million to lure Maynard away from Bristol and make his mark in the premier league.(4)(1)From his time at forest you could see he is a really effective championship striker, however he wants wages of around 25k pw, for that salery you should be looking at better than that.McInnes said on radio Scotland before Xmas,that he had no interest in Boyd or Stevenston.I would say that was better,than reading any media speculation.It came right from the horces mouth.Ally

Blackpool have offered Kevin Phillips to Watford plus £2 million in exchange for Marvin Sordell.
Phillips would look forward to reuniting his close ties with Sean Dyche's hornets

Why would Watford want Philips who only has a season tops left in him at a decent level, they showed an interest in him when he was a free in the summer and he shose to sign for Blackpool, so why on earth would they want to pay or lose money from the Sordell valuation of approx 3-5M for somebody who didnt want to join in the summer, absolute rubbish.(7)(10)

Beckford back at Leeds !!(4)(15)Hope not,becks have given leeds fans good memories for hi 80 odd gls he scored in 3 seasons of L1would not like that tarnished by him not doing it 2 nd time around.Maybe it is for another reason because I don't think beckoned will join Leeds againIm a leicester fan and i would give u beckford for free hes lazy and never runs and has a crap touchTotally agree and of course he's a first division player, what he done since he left Leeds ??My brother is a groundsman at Thorpe Arch as well. Are we brothers?

Any man united rumours?(6)(13)Rooney is a cheat for getting kompany sent off
Rooney is leaving for 60m
And scholes has been playing for reserves didnt really retire
Rooney to city or barca that's manchini and peps planJust signed chris foy on a free transferFoy got an awful lot of things wrong this afternoon, both waysWasnt the tackle on nani and not rooney! didnt see match just seen tackle on news! {Ed001's Note - yes but Rooney sprinted across the pitch to complain to the referee, while Nani, to be fair to the lad, was busy getting on with the game.}

Cardiff to sign
Elokobi(3)(9)Noone is likely
kebe unlikely even tho they both be good signings
dont need a left back coz we got tayls and naylsStevenage FC confirm that Preston North End FC have asked for permission to speak to Graham Westley with the view to employing him as their new Manager.

The club have informed Preston that their approach is unwelcome at this crucial stage of the season. However, as always in these situations, the Manager's desire will influence the outcome.

We will update supporters on this website when we have more news.


08 Jan 2012 11:36:33
Alexander and Unsworth to get the Preston job till at least end of the season!

Source: Sky Sports News(4)(8)Please let this be false info from sky or this will be a disgraceful decision the fans have been taken for a ride big time if this happens as ridsdale keeps us all guessing surely he cant appoint the last choice the fans wanted.Roy Keane, Billy Davies, Sean O'Driscol, Mark Robins, Jim Magilton, Dave Jones and Gary Flitcroft have all been posted on here of late to be installed the day after!! Will the new PNE manager please stand up.

Leicester City make new and improved bid for Cameron Stewart. £1.5m the new offer. Clearly Nigel Pearson didn't hear Barmby when he said if anyone leaves, it won't be to leicester.(11)(5)Money talksTry adding a 0 to that if he wants him ! {Ed001's Note - you mean £1.50m?}Or maybe £01.5m


08 Jan 2012 11:23:54
qpr are in talks wit Jordan Rhodes 2.5m ..(4)(23)Don't think so. They've already rejected more than thatSo are every club in the country if all posts are to be believedNow that is the most realistic price for this decent L1 player but hoping he can score in prem is not realistic.Carrol was 35 million and he could only score in the championship {Ed001's Note - he had scored 14 Premier League goals for Newcastle, so I fail to see your point. He scored 3 before they were relegated and 11 in the months after promotion.}Right Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin went for 12 million. Delph went for 7 million. They were not full internationals, they did not have 2.5 seasons of proven performance and you think 2.5 million is realistic?

How many strikers have you seen score 27 plus 6 international goals at this stage of the season? So what if it is at L1 level - we will not sell cheap. If you want quality and he is you have to match our price.

And he's not going until the summer. The endJordan rhodes hasnt scored for scotland and only has one cap for full international squad so above comment is void. hate people that comment on here that dont know their football!! and huddersfield need to accept hes going! get over it! hes too good for you!If they are in talks with Rhodes they are breaking FA rules, until a bid has been accepted by his club and permission is given he cannot talk to any club, so suspect your post is wishful thinking and that's all it will be.
Given your current overpaid squad of under achievers, and the current Manager at QPR, I think you will find it difficult to recruit any young talent, and will be forced to rely on your original strategy, by signing players who think they have nothing to prove, Shaun Wright Phillips, Barton (who Newcastle let go for nothing) and then convince them by the size of your check book.
Wayne Bridge and Alan Smith are two who would likely sign for QPRThis is for the muppet commenting on rhodes international prowess. He scored 6 goals for u21 side in quick time which earned him full call up. Been no internationals since. Hate the jealousy of the have nots.Delph actually went for nearer 8 million. Plus, Leeds got players like Lichaj and Bannan, who aren't exactly turkeys, on loan. Technically gifted players tend to fetch a higher price-tag. Rhodes is a solid centre-forward. A great finisher yes, and a good player, but outside of League 1, he is unproven as a match-winner.


08 Jan 2012 11:17:32
cardiff will tie up the noone deal by tuesday for around 1 mil , also kris boyd whos here training as a free agent will sign this week and a full back will be signed before transfer deadline. malky wants expirience there and will wait to see whos likely to be omitted from the prem teams 25 man squads, the chairman has give him a 5 mil war chest to try and nail an auto-matic spot . hes done wonders so far the team hasent even gelled properly yet, and hes lost only 5 matches in the 32 hes been in charge of 1 being away to west brom . a league cup semi final this week , the boared belive in him and have promiced to give him what he needs . Youd have to be seriously bitter to not agree with the fine job hes done so far .(11)(10)I'm a city fan when did Boyd start training with us?Also cardiff r swapping Earnie for Lewis McGugan from Notts ForestHaters just cause all yur teams goin down dont hate on us were goin upI agree with the miracle Malky has done at Cardiff...
I don't agree with your spelling.Snodgrass wont go to norwich,to good for themNo way is Malky going to sign Kris BoydIm an Englishman who lived in Cardiff for a while and loved the place. I'm no hater but weren't you saying the same this time last year?We were saying the sam thing last year & the year before that & the year before that & so on lol.
There is a genuine belief around the place now though. The team is playing like a team unlike previous seasons. Nobody was expecting us to do so well in Malky's first season in charge so it's a bonus.


08 Jan 2012 11:15:47
Norwich to bid in the summer for Robert Snodgrass provided Norwich stay up. The bid is likely to be around £4.5m - £5.75m

Norwich could table a bid for Lewis McGugan in the summer if Nottingham Forest are relegated for £1.75m due to value decreasing because of relegation.

Jordan Rhodes could also be on his way to Norwich in the summer if Norwich stay up. This bid will be about £4.5m(10)(13)None of these players will go to Norwich all you Norwich fans are so full of your small clubFrom a birmingham city fan.

they have a reason to be full of themselves. they're doing well in the prem with a great manager. plus rhodes and snodgrass are goin norwich, not heard about mcgugan thoughNow i dont usually rise to comments but...can i add.
Norwich: 13th out of 92 clubs in football league for average attendances 2011/12. they're not that small. and were the about the same 2 yrs ago in league 1.And who do you support then?I think that's a realistic post from a Norwich fan, for a change, cos you talk about the summer but think Snodgrass and McGugan could go now if bids sufficientSnodgrass premier league ! you having a laugh mate ??Grayson says 7 Million would start him thinking about selling snodgrass but you've got no chance!


08 Jan 2012 11:14:12
portsmouth to anounce bastit company as there new owners headed by david dein!(6)(8)Can't really see somebody with the reputation of David Dein sinking that low to be honest.
It will take a brave man to enter that lions den of alleged corruption.Doing the rounds here in Pompey with John magnier as well as a couple of others in a very wealthy consortium....Yeah just like it was doing the rounds with your last 3 owners, who were going to invest in your club blah blah blahIt won't be anyone big, as the administrators don't even know them!! It will probably be either a dodgy foreign busisnss man or someone who owns a corner shop....So far in Pompey we've heard every name from Bill Gates to Richard Branson being linked with taking over our club. Personally I don't care who it is so long as they haven't got a criminal record and have got plenty of money. After the succession of owners we've had we could do with some stability.


08 Jan 2012 11:08:24
Plymouth Argyle are going to sack Player Manager Carl Fletcher ( he will still stay at the club as a player though ). He will be replaced with either, Steve Tilson, Mark Robins, Paul Buckle, Bryan Laws or most likely a man called Richard Money. The new manager will be appointed in the next week and there first signing will be of Stourbridge's highly rated striker, Ryan Rowe.(6)(16)


08 Jan 2012 11:05:50
Norwich City have apparently joined the mad scramble for Nicky Maynard? Where do you think he will go?(11)(2)CrawleyBristol cityPaulton rovers!City till i die (going to norwich)Smokescreen, I think Lambert is desperately trying to put together a package to sign Rhodes.
Lambert & Norwich board usually say nothing about targets until they are actually confirmed, or come right out and say we are not trying to sign him.

Coventry in for Oliver Norwood on loan till end of Season from manchester united Petebourgh and MK Dons also intrested,

08 Jan 2012 10:45:21
David hoilet lookes pretty much nailled on to come to us he has 6mnts on contract left so should be relatively cheep.

Adam johnson may stil be a possiblity as man city have to sell before they buy tevez and bridge being the most obv thw want to get rid of buh if man coty sign another atticking player johnson never getting a gamr he rarely gets on now.

Demba ba 10m get out clause possible chance and with carroll starting to find his feet amd not panicing as much when he gets the ball it seems wise not to spend much more than 10m or so.

As for a cm I can't see us spending a fortune when people link us with tiote etc who would cost 20m + probs. Loan signing or a cm under 8m will probs be most likely(2)(10)David Hoilet?!David Junior Hoilett is his full name...How can he only have 6 minutes left on his contract? When did you leave this post, sir?!


08 Jan 2012 10:45:18
HI Ed do you know if there is any active interest in Barrios of Borussia Dortmund, we have been linked with him in the past and continue to be linked in this window? {Ed001's Note - from who?}(3)(1)Malaga watching barriosI think he might be talking about norwich.

New improved bid for Cameron Stewart by Leicester City and now clarified on Sky Sports News... Pearson means business... Billy Sharp and Kebe already on their way to the King Power Stadium!(9)(6)Sharp's agent expecting other clubs to bid so not a closed deal yet. No bids for Kebe.1.5m for Stewart is a joke; treble that and you may get him, but even then you may have to add another 1m for the Leicester premium!Billy not keen on move to Leicester so is hoping for other clubs to match the get out clause.Why would he go to leicester chey aint going anywhere in the next two years at least'Pearson means business'... so did Sven!What a joke you lot are ! first Sven sign's a complete team, now you have ya Judas back you think you can do it again ? smacks of Pompy all over, will all end in tears when your little owners get bored !Love the jel fans on here. We have hat fulls of money to spend and will while you other clubs cant even afford a half time pack of wine gums. LCFCAgreed leceister have pots of money to spend on players, that's all they can do though, buy their way out of trouble!. Still a horrible team with mr judas in charge, purely greed driven with no loyalty whatsoever to any club.We might treble it and add another 1m
We are Leicester, this is how we roll.

Whilst this is a football rumours website, I have some information that is not fictional.
Jordan Rhodes is not leaving HTFC for any other club in January 2012.
He has pledged to stay and help HTFC achieve the goal of promotion having missed out last year as have other key players that HTFC want to keep.
5 / 10 / 20 million will not buy him in January 2012 no matter which team offers the money.
You need to understand that Town DONT NEED THE MONEY, they are not an ordinary league 1 team they have a Chairman who is a supporter he doesnt need a quick buck he is a multi multi millionaire and a nice chap into the bargain. He doesnt tell lies or stories, when he says no money will buy Jordan Rhodes he actually means it.(11)(10)Saddly in this day and age its not upto the club if a player goes or stays its upto the player im sure if some big club came into offer money for him..he would leave so fast u wouldnt see the dust from his boots..thats football my friendRhodes will instigate move so doesn't matter how much Town might want to refuse. Not worth anything like £10 or £20 millionDont talk tripe! if an offer of 6million + comes in hes gone! ReptileDont be so narrow minded. If someone offered them £10-20million he would be out of the door quicker than you could wish him farewell.He is L1 player,no more than 3 mill will be offered with 50% sell on to Ipswich and hudders can say not for sale but he will put in transfer.i believe there is a wage cap in L1 and L2 so he is on peanuts,his agent will be telling him that he will treble his wages in championship.Yeah wages cap comes in from next year that clubs in football league cannot spend more than %55 on wages. so he will never get big wages thereIm not a Huddersfield fan but hope they stand firm and its not just upto the player - Modric. The summer will be a different story.Rhodes top striker for 3 year at town he won't leave until end if the season


08 Jan 2012 09:18:02
Tottenham are not to sign Jordan Rhodes after scouts went to Friday nights game against Wycombe.Harry Redknapp says that Rhodes is not the player for them.YAY!(12)(9)Qpr in talks with himSpurs to do their usual and overpay for overated playersRhodes would be as useful as a chocolate fire guard in prem,waste money if you mustOverpay for overrated plays? when was the last time that happened?Pav,keane 2nd time, crouch,Overpay for overrated players? 3rd in the prem? nuff said.The Spuds never overpay for anyone, more likely to rob other clubs blind by going in on the cheap when they want someone!


08 Jan 2012 09:14:40
Ive heard from a reliable source that Cardiff will tie up a move for Brightons Noone on Monday for a fee between £700,000 and £1,000,000.(14)(4)

Marc pugh is being tracked by several clubs in the championships including Birmingham, west ham, leeds and Reading. All three have had scouts at the last three games. It doesn't surprise me he has been outstanding the whole season and shown real quality. Jon(3)(3)Could do a good job up the road for saints he is pretty consistantHis agent was at Thorpe Arch on Thursday and he's keen to join his brother Danny.

Any truth in Alan Smith to QPR Ed?(4)(9)Hope not


08 Jan 2012 08:50:19
Ebanks Blake to Bristol city plz plz plz!(4)(14)He'd be better than Maynard for certain, he's got Premiership experience and the last season he spent in the Championship he bagged 25 goals. If Maynard ends up at Wolves (which I hope not) you could possibly get him in exchange, more likely Keogh plus cash though. But the rumored possibility of a move for Kenny Cooper from the MLS (ex United youngster like Ebanks-Blake that's spent time at Oldham, 1899 Munich and Preston North End) doesn't seem like a bad shout either; I follow Portland over here and he's one of our best players.I have heard of kenny cooper but i highly doubt bristol city will bid for him.I watched ebanks v blues, trust me you'd be better off going in for some like mame biram diouf on loan

Ryan the blueJamie Murphy of Motherwell,would score a barrell load of goals in the championship.He is Motherwell top scorer in Europe allready.Johhny Russell at Dundee Utd,is another one that would do well there.And I bet Bristol could sell the on for laods of money.Just like Burney did with S Fletcher,they got about 4.5 million,on the deal.Ally


08 Jan 2012 08:42:36

Steve De Ridder is fit and will be back for Forest away. He was available for Coventry but was rested.(9)(3)Still reckon should get 1 more good striker in this week remember rickys out for two more games and lee will need time to settle in still have nt made a move in transfer window a bit worryingHow do you know? Most of us hadn't even heard of Lee 2 weeks ago.Exactly no one had heard of himThe important thing is: your scouts had heard of him. No-one had heard of Jermaine Beckford, Fabian Delph, Robert Snodgrass or Luciano Becchio before they pulled on the white shirt.


08 Jan 2012 02:06:04
holtys only on 14 grand a week,his agent has told him if he gets 10 premier league goals he can expect to earn 30 grand a week,norwich or elsewhere,leeds,ur having a laugh,sunderland and newcastle sniffing about,he is settled in norwich though but would love to move back near carlisle.(3)(7)Good player and would do well but Too Old for Newcastle FACT! Pardew has confirmed we wont sign anyone over the age of 26His agent hasnt told him that at all if hes on contract for 14k a week for the next 3 years thats all he can exspect to get unless the club! wants to improve his offer and exstend a contract ..some people make up some dumb rubbishHolt only linked to Leeds by Norwich fans who think they might get Snodgrass. Neither moving in January - Holt wants to stay in Prem with Norwich & Snodgrass preference would be to play Prem league football with Leeds so any move not likely till summer

Bournemouth bidding for Matt tubbs as he's a local lad but he's holding out for a move to either Leeds or Southampton. Bournemouth also after one of Matty fryatt (Leicester) Freddie Eastwood (Coventry) James hayter (Doncaster) sam vokes or Brett pitman (Bristol city). Just depends on who's willing to make the drop to league one


Fryatt / Leicester! - keep up!


Matty Fryatt plays for Hull. Nice one


Since when did matty fryatt play for leicester-wishful thinking maybe


My bad, thought he was on loan at hull


Sam vokes is on loan to burnly mate sort out your facts!!


Brett Pitman Has Said he is Patient and will not look to move


More than likely going to be Hayter or Eastwood to be honest mate.... Wolves accepted Bournemouths bid for Vokes but he did not want to drop lower than championship... You can have all the Russian oil money in the world but if you can only offer league one football then your looking at past it players looking for a big pay cheque.


Only 2 of those mentioned are being looked at by Bournemouth. Hayter, as he doesn't play alot at Doncaster (alledgedly) and Eastwood, as he is a former team mate of Lee Bradbury and since Bradbury is making a habit of signing ex-team mates, the second looks most likely(2)(2)Brett pitmann wot a waste of money you can av im for nothing.

Nicky Maynard heading to Wolves from Bristol City. Involves a fee and Andy Keogh going the other way. Albert Adomah is about to join Newcastle for between £4-5m. More bad news for City fans with Brett Pitman going to Derby for just under a million. Derek McInnes has had an offer for Preston striker Neil Mellor rejected and an offer for Portland Timbers Kenny Cooper accepted.(25)(27)Maynard will be gone, but Adomah and pitman will be stayin, would love to no where you hear all this to, or why you make rubbish up, hahaMaynard will leave for sure but Adomah wont be going anywhere, hes got 2 and a half years left on his contract and would take about 10 million to prize him away. Nobody would take that kinda gamble.After the defeat at crawley,which i expected as city fan i saw no fight no comitment,from city players crawley deserved there win and goodluck to them in next roundMellor is out injured til April

Nufc to sign htfc striker Jordan Rhodes for a fee believed to be 7.5 mil on a 6 year contract !Also Shane ferguson to go to Huddersfield town on a 3 month loan(17)(31)Six year contract!Haha you mean a 5 year contract and the bookies have him as going to everton, think theyd want someone whod be a little more prolific than shane ferguson and their chairman has already said it will take double figures so cummon thats a bad rumourYea like L1players go for that,more like 2mill and doubt it will be higher than championship and even then it is a risk if he can score gls any higher than L1Well didnt ALAN PARDEW sign a 5 year contract, not often seen nowadaysHe's already been confirmed as joining Celtic mate.Mike ashley to spend money 7.5m on a youngster who can score in league 1 really? I think you would have trouble getting 7.5m out of mike Ashley for messiWhy not? Tiote has a 6 year contractYou are the only person that has been about right with the fee,alas,he is going nowhere before the end of the season at least.The best finisher outside the Premiership and only 21.Good luck for the rest of the seasonTiote Signed a new 6 1/2 year contract back in Feb so how would 6 years for a 21 year old be unrealistic?

Also their chairman hasnt said anything atall except he isnt for sale.. and Celtic couldnt afford him FACTNo body signs a 6 year contract and Celtic are too poor to buy anyone!


07 Jan 2012 23:56:55
wolves to sigh Maynard very soon. the transfer fee has been agreed. Keogh going the other way(20)(23)They can keep Keogh. Shame to lose Maynard but his head has left Ashton Gate a while ago.Ebanks-Blake going the other way

Tadanari Lee will complete his move to Southampton next week when his work permit comes through, Lukas Jutkiewcz will also sign sooner rather then later to provide back-up for Lambert. Jason Puncheon's future is over at Southampton and he will be offered to Blackpool along with £2million for Matty Phillips. Lewis McGugan is another player Adkins is interested in but could wait till late January to make a move, depending on Richard Chaplow's fitness.(9)(13)£2M won't be anywhere near enough to prise Phillips away from Blackpool who do not need to sell. I rate McGugan but really not sure he would fit in and wonder how you know Adkins is interested.Hope so. Decent list of players.It is £2M + a (self acclaimed) premier league player2 m + puncheon Read it properly!£2million + Puncheon is more then enough for phillips and im a blackpool fan!Wind your neck in, i did read it properly. If you did your homework you would know there is as much likelihood of Blackpool selling Phillips as Saints selling Lambert or Lallana. Blackpool don't need to sell anymore than we do! Just for you though i'll make it clearer : £2M + Puncheon won't be anywhere near enough.IF your a Blackpool fan i suggest you read your own Manager's comments on Phillips. Roller Coaster (i think) said £4M min and that was about a month ago.I ll be glad when puncheon has gone for good not wanted why is he still here get rid now permanentThat was a month ago and said he wouldn't sell unless it was to one of the big clubs in the Premier league anyway

What he said now after the FA cup game was this: "People will be looking at Phillips now but we've got him and if you're a top five club, come and try and offer a lot of money for him," said Holloway.You are no blackpool fan coz if you would have seen him of late youd know hes worth twice that amount, more than adam coz of goals and age-top prospect-but not till next season.Puncheon is on his way to millwall as a fee has already been confirmed.

Plus they have better options judging by the goals joe Mason has scored.Is that barry Mcguigan the boxerAs much as we all love Earnie he has hardly played and Malky prefers Miller, Mason and Gestede to him and McGugan is a quality midfielderEarnie is not going back to Forest, if they were that desperate they'd of tryed to keep him in the summer - past it!Isnt McGuigan too similar to Wittingham???

Even as a Stoke fan, I cannot see any conceivable reason why Ba would leave Toon, especially in the circumstances that led to him signing for WHU.

Clearly we need 2 full backs so rumours of massive midfield/attacker signings should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Tonge, Soares, Davies and Collins will be moved on during this window.(13)(9)A dont understand why you Stoke fans dont like Ba.. It was your daft medical staff that pulled the plug when thas claerly been nothing wrong with his legWhy cant they get insurance for him if theres nothing wrong with his knee even pardew says hes got a defect in his knee and they manage it and he is on pay as you play

Jermain beckford going back to Leeds on loan til the eos if sharp agrees a deal! Snodgrass going nowhere, why would we sell him now absolute rubbish!!(19)(18)Not a chance-read the scrathing shed. We were fortunate to get nothing for the waste of space!!Beckford is only in it for the money.. left everton to leicester for the money.. i hate players who aren't in it for the football"i hate players who aren't in it for the football"
then you dont like football!Beckford was a disgrace yesterday! Lazy and can't be bothered attitude! Nugent worked his socks off at Florest yesterday. Leeds can have him, we need Billy SharpBeckford has already played for 2 clubs this season i didnt think you can play for anymore than that in a season is this right ED? {Ed001's Note - did he actually play any games for Everton this season?}Ed - He played 2 games for Everton at the beginning of the season, so he can't join anyone else on anything more than an emergency loan. {Ed001's Note - I didn't realise that, thought he only played friendlies, but I never took much notice to be honest.}If he goes on short term loan 1-3 (called an emergency loan) then yes he can play for as many teams as he/the club likes!

tommoBeckford was prolific for leeds. yet fans still love to slag him off. were never happy, id take him back if he bangs em in like he did, no problem.

07 Jan 2012 21:33:11
samba wont go qpr what you on about he will go tottenham and hoillet wont go stoke he will go tottenham or liverpool blackburn after johnson sordell el mohhamdy and may even make a bid for billy sharp(9)(12)Aye Samba's looking for a step up to an established EPL club likely to be challenging for Europe. IMO if he makes a move within England he'll be joining one of Man U, Man City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal, (maybe) Chelsea and less likely Stoke and Newcastle. I'd also include Everton and Aston Villa but they wouldn't be able to afford him.

Whether he moves or not I think it's safe to say he won't be joining QPR which IMO would be a step down.Why make a bid for 2 championship strikers.... DRFCQpr dont want samba they only bid cause they know spurs will bid higher and get him leaving bassong available who is there no1 targetI think could afford him , Everton could too (using the Arteta money!)Ha! I love QPR fans, they live in a dream world! Useless manager and no one wants to play for him... FACT!

Saints are going to bid £3.5 million for Cardiff playmaker Peter Whittingham

you aint got 3.5 mil lol

yea we sold chamberlin for 12 mil but we have no money..................... about that :L LOL(3)(24)I thought West Ham had already had £4m turned down!I'm a Cardiff fan and malckys built his squad around whitts plus if we wouldn't sell to west ham we wouldn't sell to ur st clubYou are still not having himCan I just point out Adkins had 20 Million to spend this year has spent about 5 on fox de ridder Hoovield and lee so we have 15 million to spend if need be !No chance of whittingham moving to Saints. I know for a fact he is really happy at Cardiff. Signed new contract at beginning of season. Will only go if Cariff don't go up.Saints are already buying 18 other players according to this site. Might as well make it 19!No chance of Whittingham coming down here as much as I would like him to. But saying we dont have £3.5million is complete cr@p! We got 15mill from Chambo and it's not like we were skintight before that!It is only 12 mill if arsenal win prem and champions league so no chance there.very little up front I am afraid.We are the fourth richest club in englandYou clearly didn't read the sfc press release when we got him. It's £12 mill plus add ons! You add that the £3 mill we put in for sharp before and we have about £15mill to spend if we choose. However it is highly unlikely a promotion rival would sell their best player to us. Would we sell Lambo to then?I think you will find its mostly up front. Thats why the deal took longer than expected when Arseanl signed him. Saints had their fingers burnt before on a small up front fee and the rest to follow Walcott & BaleIt was £12m up front for oxo rising to £15 o arsenal and England appearances so get your facts right! They offered £7m up front and insisted on £12m confirmed by Cortese himself!Peter witingham probably didn't go to west ham because of Sam allardyce rubbish football. Also will everyone stop saying we have no money were one of the richest clubs in England thanx markus leihburrHe didn't go to West Ham because the bid was rejected out of hand, he never even spoke to themYawn, Yawn, Yawn.. Another simple minded southampton fan forgetting his place. how long since you saw top flight football? You would be nothing without your manager and when he leaves your in trouble. Big Sam might not play attractive football and with a seriously average and injures team were still level on points with you. Your patheticI used to like southampton until I realised their fans love themselves so much. Grow up lads. Take a leaf out of your managers book and be humble.To correct the arrogant person we are NOTthe fourth richest club we haD the 4th richest owner andwest ham guy soutjampton have had lots of injuries too like fonte chaplow lallana cknnoly davis etc and you ciuld say that our team were crp and lucky if we faded away but after half a seawould kike to see a striker over whittingham like maynard...skn we are still going well.Um...some of our fans do need to grow up, like West Ham's and every other club but it was our Chairman who surprised many by sacking Pardew and appointing Adkins. It is also our humble manager who is now openly talking about our desire for promotion this season.

Ba plays for a bigger club already and Holliett is going to a top 6 club.Ba to Stoke? you're having a laugh .. right now he could join Barca!

rangers to try and get jimmy kebe from reading(2)(14)I dont think he will join due to his medical at westham todayThere are teams in the championship and lower epl teams looking at Kebe! Window shopping is all that rangers can do nowadays, and even I'm getting bored hearing it but their skint! They could probably sell 4 of their best players for 15-20mil and still no re-invest!Celtic fan there a bit miffed that Glasgow " how are they gonna pay for him " Rangers spent more than celtic in the summer, and will do again in januaryTo the person who said rangers are going to soend more this month than celtic, how are you going to do that when the tax man is knocking at your door and administration is a possibility?Just being honest unlike some!!! Rangers need to spend, but can't! Celtic don't, and I'm not a Celtic supporter! Get real....The tax case was hovering about in the summer too, it was hovering about well before CW's takeover.


07 Jan 2012 20:43:55
Liverpool,Arsenal,Tottenham and Chelsea are set to battle it out for Demba Ba after it was revealed he had a £10m release clause put into his £40,000 a week 3 year deal. Ba had a similar clause put into his contract at West Ham which allowed him to leave on a free transfer should they get relegated. Ba has been a revelation for Newcastle this year scoring 15 and assisting 4 goals in the Premiership and it would be a bitter blow to lose their star striker a year after losing Andy Carroll to Liverpool.(14)(14)Ba is such a humble gangster.. i doubt he will leave until his contract expires...If he was that much of a 'humble gangster' he wouldnt have these clauses put into his contracts to allow him to leave.I'm not A Newcastle fan but I have to give a lot of credit to whoever it was there who decided to take a chance on him. Why do all these so called bigger clubs want him now for a chunky fee when he was available on a free and a (relatively ) small signing on fee last summer. It isn't as though he was an unknown then, as he was banging goals in in the premiership for struggling West Ham. Doesn't say a lot for the judgement of the managers who are now chasing him.Lmfao...Carroll is not a star striker and ba is not going anywhereBa's clause at West ham was a relegation one. The clause at Newcastle won't be for 10 million either. Do you think Ashley would have a clause that low. If there is a clause It would be for 15/20 million. Thats if their is a clause at all.Ba has the same record as Darren Bent right now yet £10 vs £30.
I know who i would go for!HAHA! Ba is humble is he? Really? So when everyone rejected him and west ham gave him his break did he stay around to repay the favour.. even for 6 months? no he jumped ship like a rat, and he will happily do the same to Newcastle. And Pardew doesn't deserve that. Hope im wrong because I can see the yods getting their thieving little hands on him.If he hs a clause of ten million and a club offers to buy him for said money, newcastle CANNOT turn down the offer. It would all be down to the player if he wanted to move, which i would feel he would for the wages, fair play to himFor the last time, Ba was not a free transfer despite what crap the media spin. The Geordies took on West Ham's commitment to pay Hoffenheim over 2-3 seasons.

Jordan Rhodes' manager says there is no way he is leaving the club(9)(13)That's ok then! Arsenal couldn't stop fabregas leaving and man utd couldn't stop ronaldo leaving but I'm sure mighty huddersfields Lee Clark has got more about him than fergie and wenger :/Good job it's not up to him then ...Maynard off to fulham 30 grand a week,replacement will be beckford at everton ,also new no2 coming in to help del boy out ,hunts off to preston,stews off to notts county,1 final thing pitmans going nowhereIf a offer is made which is too good to turn down of cause he will be sold. Every player has his price.He will leave. Spurs end of Jan.Also beckfords not at everton hes at leicster you absolute tool and suddenly everton have been made 1/12 favs to get rhodes , source ladbrookes website, quite interesting seen as no one from everton have been supposedly scouting or anything, also isnt pitman going fulham not maynard?? ED?Will you keep up Beckford plays for Leicester and has done since the last day of the last transfer windowThe same beckford thats at leicester, some people chat sh!tIs that when Modric leaves?In response to the first post, Lee Clark isn't dealing with some overpaid prima donna's, Jordan Rhodes is a lad with his head well and truly screwed on.....Just one point, Fergie did manage to keep hold of his star striker Rooney so why not Clark?Only time rhodes going anywhere is in the summer and not before so keep dreaming


07 Jan 2012 20:13:22

im sick of people saying billy sharp great he is a money grabbing tt thats why southampton didnt sigh him last time he wanted prem wages and we wasent going to pay them and nicky manyard not gd enough 4 me that lad from coventry the 1 i want to see plz adkins(12)(6)Couldn't agree more mate {Ed001's Note - Billy Sharp didn't sign for Southampton because they wanted him to move and he wanted to stay where he was. Nothing to do with money, that is complete fantasy or a downright lie.}I really don't understand why you have to write summer abusive about a man you don't even know he deserves prem wages he is easily good enough for the prem the reason he didn't go to you was the simple fact that he didn't want to no wages were discussed so don't come on here and post tosh {Ed001's Note - only an idiot would think that he is a money grabber, considering he turned down offers of over 3 times the wages to join Donny in the first place!}And plus how dare you speak of a man who lost his child and compare him to a money grabber. Money wont return his child will it?Child got nothing to do with anything. He ha release clause put not contract so he knows he's not going to get tied down at Doncaster if a good offer comes in. Money talks and if he wanted to stay where he is then he would, but he will take them money offered. Leicester will probably finish just above Doncaster anyway, just because theyve spent a few quid doesn't mean there going up. Leicesters money from loans taken out against club according to a good sourceNot being funny but I agree with the top post, The fee was agreed for him to join Southampton but just broke down when agreeing wages and therefore didn't sign, to add to this the guy that said, 'He deserves prem wages' are you mad? Nobody whatsoever deserves that amount of money for kicking a ball around for 90mins whether your Billy Sharp or Lionel Messi, the wages are absolutely ludicrous yet footballers still seem to moan, & clubs wonder how they get in the st maybe if they take a look at the wages there paying out {Ed001's Note - he didn't even discuss wages! He said no thanks before it got that far, he didn't even find out how much was on offer. It was a simple case of not wanting to be so far from his home, nothing to do with money. Leicester is different, he won't have to move.}Well I would suggest your 'good source' has been on the sauce!! Once again,none of the investment into Leicester has come in the form of loan / mortgage. It is all the owners cash. Get your facts right. Typical jealous saints fan!Who is this geezer talking crap about billy sharp he's a great player proven goal scorer why would he stay at Doncaster and play league one football for I've been to see Donna a few times this year and deserve to go down there crap awfulWe are awful we've hade smoke knocked out of us by our chairman the blokes a legend but he's got it wrong this tim , Diouf isn't a championship relegation battle player nor is chimpbonda we should be trying for players like Elliot ward an jay Emmanuel Thomas who we had beforeLast summer, Adkins suggested someone's wage demands were unrealistic. As usual, no name was said, perhaps Maynard? Anyway, bit rich for a Leicester fan to say a typical Saints fan is jealous. Are you proud that the money so far spent has got you to mid-table?Leceister aren't the rich club their fans would have you believe. Their owners have money troubles and most of the clubs wealth comes from loans. Anyway the club is to be sold in the near future, Keith vaz favourite to take over at the king power stadium.Billy Sharp is one of the few honourable men left in football these days, this rumour should be deleted, the OP is an arse.What a twonk you are. Money grabbing, that's why he plays for Doncaster? laughable. He will only move away from the area for the right move (premier league).


07 Jan 2012 20:00:27
Non league rumour - Combined Counties 1st Division side South Kilburn are to be forcibly demoted to the Middlesex Premier Division next season for continually lying about their full time results to the FA.

Also, there will be FIVE new sides in the CCL1 next season:

Epsom Atletic
Eton Wick (will have lights for 2012/13)
Chertsey Town Reserves
Virginia Water (will have lights for 2012/13)
Uxbridge Reserves(7)(4)Eton Wick won't have lights pal - blame the council, as they've refused EWFC permission due to the 'sensitive nature' of the area they're in.

EWFC will stay at Step 7, and Croydon United (which will be the new name given to the reformed Croydon Athletic side) will be put in at Step 6 (CCL1). This means a reprieve for a team in the CCPL (Chessington & Hook at the moment).

Also, Guernsey will be switched over to the Wessex Premier with Alton Town taking their place in the CCPL next season.Hackney and Tower Hamlets will be in step 6 next year. The team will plat at Mile End Stadium. The team is backed by both Councils and funded by millionaires from Canary Wharf who want a semi pro team in the area.Any Hackney team would have to play in the Essex leagues, as the Combined Counties area is going to be restricted as of next season.

Oh, and South Kilburn won't be relegated because of the error. I should know because my brother volunteers at the club and says that it's because the club sent the date of the game in as well as the score to the FA. The FA and Surrey FA have been told and accepted that South Kilburn have not acted maliciously.

Epsom Athletic will be in the CCL1 next season, not too sure Virginia will (they'll need to get cracking if they are to go up) and Chertsey & Uxbridge Reserves sound ok along with the new Croydon side. If VW don't go up then expect Leatherhead Reserves to join the CCL1 next season.So it's true that the FA want all Step 5 and 6 leagues to be 22 teams per league next season?

South Kilburn have had a good talking to by the CC League, and any more problems would see them demoted or moved back to the Hellenic or to the Spartan Midlands. Hope for their sake they sort out any problems.

Rumour has it that Michael Morrisson had a massive row with manager Chris Powell after their 4-0 defeat to Fulham! Celtic £500,000 deal could be back on!(9)(9)Also heard this about the row. Also heard its between Celtic, Ipswich and maybe even a possible return to Leicester. Nigel Pearson loves him and tried to get him when he was manager at Hull!Morrison is not good enough for Leicester! Slow! All Leicester fans remember his performance at Portsmouth when we lost 6-1!Sven begged him to stay but couldn't promise immediate first team football, he'd walk into Leicesters team now! Best centre half in league 1 by a mile and would relish another chance in the championship and even push as a squad player for the premiership! He's gained in fitness and experience! Wigan, Blackburn and Celtic reportedly watching! Watch this space

scottland and huddersfield striker jorden rhodes says hes a celtic fan(13)(19)You mischievous gitWow is he reallyNo he didn't ...WHOOPEEEThe same one that grew up a utd fan?? just bcoz hes scottish born doesnt mean hes an old firm fan you moron, you wishing a decent player would sign for that sunday league team doesnt make him a fan, he will go everton, fulham, wolves, villa one of them sorta teams, decent prem teams, not a sunday league team who dont have the 7/8 mill to buy himCeltic bigger club than all of the above mentioned. Chance of silverware and european football. Or go to wolves get relegated or 1 a the other 3 and get nowhere. Maybe win the championship in 2013 with wolves ryt enufYou think villa and wolves are decent prem teams and then you call celtic a sunday league team ! MUG ! if all of these so called big teams down south are so decent then why are they so terrified to let old firm teams play in their precious money grabbing league - coz they are scared of the relegation because they know it wouldnt be the old firm that went down !!!ROFLMAO!!! you talk about Celtic being a sunday league team, then mention everton, fulham, wolves, villa....hahaa...who the heck are they exactly?

and trust me, everton certainly dont have 7/8m to spend on anyone you jumped up little englander!Why you sayin celtic are a sunday league team?! u fool! they have a squad of good quality championship level players. its the league thats poor not them. so dont say why would he want to go to celtic. any young scottish lad would enjoy playin for either celtic or rangers!So its true then all scotts are crazy drunks!! to compare celtic and rangers to everton and villa whod p that pathetic league and the other two probably the same, you win silverware because its a two team league, one of you has to win something the top two guarenteed europe, OH WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT!! a two team league where two teams are guarenteed europe ofc he could get that there, and 5 grand a week playing against hibs n hearts, or go the prem and play city, chelsea, arsenal, spurs, liverpool, everton, and utd every week or even play for 1 of them, lets face it the old firm in the same breath as them teams, you play in europe due to a st league, on par with birmingham and west n co id say, an inbetween championship n prem league is where you belong, we dont let you in because your scottish, not english, yes swansea and cardiff play here and have done since the begining of their clubs history so its not an arguement, that and neither of you have the money for rhodes, west ham had 5 million rejected, thats more than the old firms combined budget so the arguments not there, scottish football is disgusting, if you cant make it in the prem but still want to play infront of decent crowds you go the spl simple as thatCeltic are big in the Scottish league period. Both them and Rangers have lost all their pulling power, they can now only attract second rate football players who could not make it in the Premier league. And why would the EPL let some two bob bit team from Scotland into our league? If you want it that bad you can start in the Ryman Premier league and work your way up. You'd be relegated from the EPL with your current team.Rhodes wishes he was born in Scotland.He iwas born in Oldham,but that is OK so was Andy Goram.And he was a Scotland legend,just like Rhodes can be for us.AllyThere is no way that any teams in Scotland are good enough to challenge in the premier league, some of the players regarded as your best players have been tried and tested in the premier league and failed, (e.g. Miller, Davis, Samaras, Ferguson). The SPL teams are Championship at best.Are the scotts seriously comparing two of englands oldest and one of them most successful sides with the old firm?? get a grip of your lives people, villa yeah they arnt too great now but nor are leeds and theyd still beat the old firm, everton well lets be honest would walk the spl, and well bookies have them as favs for rhodes signature, and being promised all the money from arteta sale and bilyaletdinovs proposed sale to wolfsburg thats another 6 million i think thats what?? going by normal english maths double what you said they cant afford, its a two team league, thats the only reason your fans base is decent, but could you see hooper or lafferty smashing them in against any prem team? i think not! lafferty couldnt even make it at championship level, wolves, your telling me fletcher and doyle n ohara wouldnt walk into the spl teams? nzogbia bent abonglahor? fellaini, rodwell, baines? face it the spl teams are at best people who are good in championship but could never hack the prem, everton are top 7 team in the prem season in season out, villa one bad season in what 4 or 5 seasons and suddenly they are compared to spl teams geez thats harsh, atleast you have aberdeen who have atleast won something ;)So what if he is a Celtic fan!! Doesn't mean he will play for them! They couldn't afford a ticket to watch him play for Huddersfield let alone to sign the man.No one in Prem League is scared of that poor quality football u play in Scotland! The Scottish want independence from England then stop trying to join our league. Old firm is the best of a bad bunch, very bad bunch! Just look at the squads! Rangers will probably cease to exist in a few seasons and Celtic signed Samaras! Enough said!SPL teams wouldn't survive the championship let alone the prem, you stay up there thinking your a big team when all you really do is beat non league teams. Look what spurs reserve side did to hearts... Scottish football is shockingCan a SPL fan please give me a realistic prediction of where the Old Firm would finish if they did join the English leagues? Honestly can't see either team in top 15 of Premier League!He is English muppet!! Watch this space he will play for England in Euros!!Rhodes is worth 3 mil tops (tie ins ,clauses etc could boost fee eventually). none of the teams you mentioned have 7-8 mil to spend on unproven players.Just confirming the arrogance of the english here, no wonder no-one likes you lot!

both Celtic and Rangers have proven to be a match, and more often than not, better than any premiership team they have played in europe....just look at the results from the past 10 years. And both teams have managed to reach the final stages of both european competitions. not bad for a couple of teams with no money and playing in a sub standard league eh? oh, and regards to money, Celtic have not 1, not 2, but 3, yes THREE billionaires on the board, our debt currently sits at less than £800k.

so for all your BS comments and superiority complex, your arguments really dont stand up in the real world of facts and figures.

Both Celtic and rangers would be challenging for the title within 5 years if given the same amount of money, this is the reason they are not invited to join the EPL.

oh, and tell me the last time the so-called 'greatest league in the world' wasn't a 2-horse race? cos for the life of me it's been like that for about 15 years now.....yawn

cant wait till the finances really bite your wonderful premiership right in its ar5e, and what's the betting that at least 5 or 6 top clubs end up going bustRangers and Celtic have both done Leeds out of Europe when they were champions.Rangers done them back to back in the Battle of Britain of 92.When only the champions could play in the champions league.The way that it should be.And Lafferty is hardly smashing them in for Rangers up here.And Miller still out scored Hooper in six months last year.What about English internationals that could not cut Rangers?BALL,JEFFERS,BEATTIE?Just off the top off my head.Even Bardsley who now plays for Scotland,never exactly done much for us when he was on loan here.The SPL is not as bad,as the English want to make out.A.MIf no one likes us, why do you want to join us, simples for the money! If Celtic do have three billionaires on the board and they are such a big club why are they not competing with the top EPL teams for players?No its not as bad as we make it out to be, its WORSE!! beattie, jeffers, ball, right start with jeffers, the lad went up there known for being someone who likes the ball to feet something the scotts dont seem to think works with there whole keeper rolls it to centre backs he hoofs to striker football going on, ball was playing well till his injury, n well beattie is just beattie, everyone knows hes pish poor :D haha the old firm are that rich didnt a player have to pay his own fee to go rangers at one point?? n well celtics main striker is hooper, just says it all really, that asain in the midfield at celtic about the only decent thing in spl at the moment, henrik larson was probably the last decent thing you lot had, maybe petrov at villa, if we let any scottish team in it would have to be the only big team up there in aberdeen atleast theyve been to european finals

Southampton will complete the signing of Tadanari Lee on Thursday next week subject to an approved work permit which should be only a formality. Scouts were at the Hearts game today and last week for the Hibs derby to monitor Andrew Driver. Adkins see him as a decent winger to compete with the clubs current wingers and with Hearts in huge financial trouble he could be available at a cheap price. Lastly Adkins is considering a move for Forest midfielder Lewis McGugan who in my opinion could really add something to the side. He will be taking a closer look at McGugan next week as saints travel to Forest in the Championship.(11)(8)Anything about the Coventry strikerMcGugan would probably have to wait until punch goes since the club have a policy of only having one with a bad attitude on the books at a time

any latest bolton wanderers rumours today thanks(2)(10)Trying to sign Darren Gibson from unitedYou are going down.Are you stupid?

The arrival of Billy Sharp to Leicester will pave the way for unwanted striker Jermaine Beckford to return to Leeds.
Robert Snodgrass likely to go to Norwich once he returns to fitness after a recent appendix operation.
Grayson will be expected to get rid of unwanted players like O'Brien, Paynter, Rachubka before been allowed to use some of the money to bring more players in.(12)(19)Good, beckford is ste, hes lazy useless and has a touch of a donkey!!! id pay clubs just to take him if i were the managerWhy get Beckford back? Personally i wouldn't want him back...
Need to sort out midfield/defence more than strikersWould NOT be eligible to play a competitive game until NEXT season if he signed for us . FL rules state that a player may be registered to play for 3 teams, but can only appear for 2, so any storys you may read of him returning will be untrueYou can keep him!!Would NOT be eligible to play a competitive game until NEXT season if he signed for us . FL rules state that a player may be registered to play for 3 teams, but can only appear for 2, so any storys you may read of him returning will be untrue

not true he can sign on emergency loan 1-3 months please get your facts straight before posting crap! he could sign for as many teams on loan as he likes so long as they are ratified and in the correct transfer periods.

Nicky Maynard is now top striker target.(10)(13)Only one I want out of those is bridge, pinaar is good but don't see it going well Maynard just ain't that goodNo, Bridge will not come to qpr his wages are 96K stupid. Pinear could happen. Maynard not a chance. He wants a proven Premiership striker end of.Under the fair play rules, QPR will be bankrupt. haha

Grant holt of Norwich to Leeds. Holt and 2mill for snodgrass(7)(23)Grant Holt who has just brought a house in Norwich. Who signed a new contract last year. Club Captain. 7 Prem goals to his name with ambitions for an England call...... Dream on.Think it'll be more like Holt & 1mill though.Haha not a hopeEngland call?Are you having a laugh?
Snoddys gonna stay and Holts too good for leeds as he's a premiership player and do you really think Bates is going to pay holts wages?We'd sooner have holt than snodgrass. If anything was going to happen it would be snodgrass+money for holt, not the other way round.If Holt says he is staying then he will move, stab you in the back, just like he did at Shrewsbury.Grant Holt for England! Pull your head out your ar$e, he's having a decent season but an England player he'll never be.20 games in his whole life in prem do not make holt a prem player and he would never get an England call.How would we rather have holt than snodgrass, are these people as thick as they are dumb? start going to the games, not watching highlights. Snoddy = St hot!

Bournemouth bidding for Matt tubbs as he's a local lad but he's holding out for a move to either Leeds or Southampton. Bournemouth also after one of Matty fryatt (Leicester) Freddie Eastwood (Coventry) James hayter (Doncaster) sam vokes or Brett pitman (Bristol city). Just depends on who's willing to make the drop to league one(11)(8)Fryatt / Leicester! - keep up!!Matty Fryatt plays for Hull. Nice oneSince when did matty fryatt play for leicester-wishful thinking maybeMy bad, thought he was on loan at hullSam vokes is on loan to burnly mate sort out your facts!!!Brett Pitman Has Said he is Patient and will not look to moveMore than likely going to be Hayter or Eastwood to be honest mate.... Wolves accepted Bournemouths bid for Vokes but he did not want to drop lower than championship... You can have all the Russian oil money in the world but if you can only offer league one football then your looking at past it players looking for a big pay cheque.I'm sure Bournemouth are looking at these type of players but it doesn't mean they're getting any of them. I'm a Wolves fan and I'm sure big Mick has looked at Lionel Messi, but looking and buying are two completely different scenario's.

Jordan Rhodes off to Middlesbrough to join up with his uncle, Steve Agnew for £4.5 million, due for medical @ James Cook on Monday.(8)(21)Ha Ha Ha. Absolutely no way 4.5 mill will be the amount that prizes him from Huddersfield and as if Town are going to jump at the first're the reason cousins shouldn't get it on.Think that's a bit of a stretch....
If he does move it will almost certainly be to a premier league club

07 Jan 2012 19:07:19
Pilkington to Spurs. £5m + Naughton apparently. Source: Matein players lounge before and after game.

Apparently that's the reason he wasn't on the bench for us today too, as Spurs didn't want him cup tied.(3)(23)Funny that i saw him in a suit at todays norwich gameRubbish rumour, do you really believe Lambert would let him go to Spurs half way through our first season in Premiership? Likewise we already have Naughton signed for season, so no real incentive to sign him up now and then let one of the brightest young players go, when he will be worth a lot more in a couple of seasons.
You are guessing because he was not in squad today, Perhaps Lambert just rested him because he has come back from a very bad injury to start this season and does not want to risk him when we had more than enough to get by Burnley. Likewise he is taking him out of the limelight, so he does not get unwanted attention from possible buyers, and a third theory ? He's away in Huddesfield telling Rhodes what a great choice Norwich would be under Lambert's guidance to enhance his career getting real game time in premier league. He's just the type of player Lambert loves to work with, rejected by Ipswich and with something to prove, but will Norwich risk probably £6M( inc add on's)


07 Jan 2012 19:04:21

Just returned home from the norwich match.Alot of rumours going around the stands was that Burley striker Jay Rodriguez was going to be Meeting with Paul Lambert after about a posible move to the prem team.(12)(13)Makes sense. Snodgrass is pretty much a done deal (if he wasn't injured he'd be a canary already) with Holt going to Leeds as part ex. So signing Jay Rod would go some way to making Norwich's fans happyNorwich have been linked with him in the past, he certainly looks like he's got something about him, so you never know.Snodgrass this and Snodgrass that,give it a rest norwich fans,try L1 I think there might be small clubs than yourselves that have players you can attract.

Albion boss Gus Poyet has warned Cardiff their interest in Craig Noone is "going nowhere".

The Argus revealed details earlier today of Cardiff's rejected £400,000 offer for the Seagulls' talented winger.

Poyet said: "People said to me in December are you expecting any offers for Nooney, for Dunky (Lewis Dunk)? I'm ready for anything because in football today you don't know.

"When you get an offer that means players are doing well but it's how you can control it, depending on the offer and the club wanting the player.

"The situation last January with Benno (Elliott Bennett and Norwich) was a nightmare for 20 days, unbearable. Let's see, maybe this one is easier.

"It's totally different. At the moment it's going nowhere. I don't know what is going to happen but what is true right now is they've got no chance.

"They would have to more than significantly up their offer."

Source Brighton evening argus.

What poyet mean Cardiff is shove it were the sun don't shine.(8)(8)Gus cant control , he has said that he wants the move to cardiff and is not willing to budge ,cardiff have offered 700k but brighton are holding out for 1.2 m , expect the deal to go through tuesday , if its true whats been said for 1 m , gus has no time for players who dont wont to be at the club after the last fiasco , and plus cardiff being so much more of a bigger club you cant fault the player hes obviously ambitious

Local Sussex paper the Argus reports that Brighton have rejected a bid of Four hundred thousand pounds for Craig Noone from Cardiff. The paper also reports that Brighton are monitoring Wolves striker Sam Vokes.
Make it 1.5 million and Brighton might think about it. What a pathetic offer for one of brighton's best players. Why would he want to sign for a team we beat 3 - 1 away. Cardiff are joking if they think we would sell to them. Your board must be full of idiots if the think a player Brighton value at four times what the offered. If I was the Brighton owner I would have laughed and told Cardiff to pi off. What a bunch of welsh wallies.(5)(14)1.5 million???? you gotta be joking, he can't be as good as you say if he's playing for a mid table side. why would he want to cardiff??? because were 4th in the league and are going for automatic promotion. if i were him id snap cardiffs hand off. midtable or a promotion push??? i know what i would ratherId rather be at brighton, cardiff belong in the league of wales with the likes of tns and llanelliCraig noone is worth 1million and im a donny fanJust because Brighton beat Cardiff 3-1 it doesn't mean there a much better team and a certain player wouldn't sign because of that 1 result. Brighton could only manage a draw against the mighty Wrexham, doesn't mean they are a better side than you. It was probably just an opening bid, you will just have to wait and see what happens. Cardiff have been up near the top of the division for the past few seasons, where as Brighton have just been promoted.Why should Cardiff play in the league of Wales, they've played in the football league longer than Brighton.
And the piece on Brighton beating Cardiff 3-1. Cardiff beat Real Madrid many years ago so hopefully messi and kaka will join them on frees and spice up the championship.I agree, Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham should NOT be playing in England, they should be playing in the Welsh league!Cardiff have played in football league longer than Brighton?? I think not. Both joined in 1920.They joined the southern league in 1911. They were asked to join around 1907 but they didn't have own ground until 1910ish. The southern league was a English league, plus other teams from wales played in the southern Aberdare, Merthyr amongs others. Welsh teams play in England because they have no viable league in Wales. I don't think it makes any difference anyway apart from the £6 the French owners of the bridge charge when we go over with Reading. I've only experienced good banter over there.Yes i agree with the above comment, but for brighton to say cardiff are a small club is pretty funny , im a spurs fan but brighton have won 7 trophies and cardiff have over 30 trophies to there name including being in the european cup and they have been in three fa cup finals winning it once , cant say mcuh more than that im afraid even if they are welsh lolI was there when brighton beat Cardiff, it came as a suprise after beating West ham, but thats the Championship for you!! and that goes for Players too, Worth £1.5m one day on a trial with Rushden the next!!

Then he said on second thoughts he will just swap teamsBLIP that meens, big lazy idol person ,thats what you get when you sign bullard

Go away you foolish leeds fan, leeds are no longer good, Rangers VS Leeds 1972, enough said, however, East Fife has no chance getting bechio, he's SPL quality(9)(7)You're sad you have to go into the past to prove a pointSpl, how cute!SPL? He must be good then!Spl ha ha ha haSpl is L1 standard.Spl is notl1i standard its weaker but celtic are a different story apart from the big 6 inepl we would hold our own and thats without the mega bucks hail hailLove to see rangers and celtic in english league. start in premier be in league 2 3 yrs later. Scottish "football" haha don't make me laughHaving watched the SPL and (for many years) the Championship, I'd say that the top two are Championship standard, but, frankly, not even a shoe-in for the playoffs. Lafferty and Hooper? Really?I think you mean Jelavic. yes the one that people are talking about going to liverpool for £10m.

jelavic gets £25k a week, rooney gets £250k a week, and yet, jelavic scores more, you're not telling me that rooney is 10 times better than him, are you really that naiveIt nice to see all the Epl fan who think they have the best league in the world, it's not it just has the most money. There are player at both old firm clubs that have turned down lower half of the EPl to stay with the old firm, why not ask Gazza, Brian laudrop, John harrison or Chris Sutton where they enjoyed the football the most. Both old firm club get over 50,000 & 60,000 fans every week not many EPL clubs do thatUr ignorance to the truth down ther is unbelievable. The difference between a celtic or a rangers and any of ur top 4 teams in the epl is a massive sky tv package. The old firm have 50000 plus each home match. Man city are top a ur league and cany even fill the etihad. Look at the history a the 2 glasgow teams, the stadiums, fans etc and then think thank fck for sky tv.Its not that Rooney is ten times better, its that the quality of players in the SPL is ten times worse than that of the EPL, so Jelavic scoring x amount of goals is just like Michael Chopra banging in 15+ goals a season in the Championship, its just easier than going against the best defenders in the world. How can you possibly say that the SPL is as good as the EPL?Naive and stupid post - comparing the SPL (absolutely no money) to EPL (unbelievable amount of debt).Might as well compare EPL to LA LIGA.One of the best rangers players ever (kris boyd) struggles in the championship scotland sucks at all sports apart from binge drinking and depression

just got this, albion have made a bid
for peter whitingham of cardiff to
replace the injured chris brunt.
the deal amazingly involves simon cox
+ cash, and another un-named player
going the other way.(7)(25)No chance, I can't see whittingham leaving Cardiff this month, he's settled and playing well in a position he enjoys. He's got plenty left on his contract so unless silly money is offered he won't be going anywhere!People whitts will not leave cardiff hes a very shy person it took him 2 years to settle in at cardiff , and hes finally comfatable and confident , he doesent want to go through all the move and what have you again , cardiff accepted a 4.5m bid from qpr in augest and he turned it downWhat a load of rubbish mate... Whitts is off you can dream on every player wants to play at the highest level so it's the perm for this lad.. And as for him being shy dream on you ain't got a clue....

I was in the Swindon Town Directors Box today, and asked Jeremy Wray if the rumours about Ross Allen coming to The County Ground were true.

Jeremy confirmed that the club are interested in him and they are working on a deal to bring him to Swindon.

Also, the club are not in trouble financially but Paolo has been asked to curb spending until the 'flops' are moved on.

Oh, and Phil Smith will be leaving by the end of the month - Crawley are re-signing him. Peter Kurucz (GK) will sign for Swindon after his one month loan deal at Rochdale.(4)(7)


07 Jan 2012 17:33:37
Huddersfield will not be signing anyone this transfer window and not selling any first team players, and Rhodes will NOT be going anywhere this season.

Money well spent!(7)(9)

Jordan Rhdes is most favourite to go to Everton although Newcastle are also interested. YangaMbiwa could also be on his way to the toon for around 5 million(12)(7)I wont Agree or disagree to any Newcastle rumours, because no one in the world knows whats going on in Fat Mikes head ,not even him sometimes. But as all Newcastle fans we live in hope, rather than expectation.Unlikely he will go to Everton, they are more broke than i am! {Ed025's Note - trueMoyes has been granted permission to talk to the player - someone to be sold to fund it ?Everton? What are they going to pay? A bag of haribo?Been made 1/12 favs on the ladbrookes website, dont know myself where he is going just know that the bookies have him down as going to everton, though personally if i was moyes id say heres the 5 million of bilyaletdinov whos meant to be going german club and velios on loan to cover rhodes? ED? {Ed001's Note - Spurs seem to be favourite right now.}Skysports thing with redknap says he doesnt want him, wants only a striker that will get straight into the starting eleven also ruled out gary cahill, everton would be an ideal destination


07 Jan 2012 17:29:13
Gary roberts will stay at htfc and will not be going to sheff wednesday. He hasnt agreed a contract at town because he will have to take a wage deduction next season with the capping of league 1 wages so he would be in the same situation at wednesday if both clubs were in league 1 nxt season. My money is htfc getting promotion and roberts signing a new contract at town at end of season.(4)(6)


07 Jan 2012 17:25:08
Kevin Davies is set to make an emotional return to Chesterfield as player manager. Despite late interest from his former manager at West Ham who wants to hijack the move, it's a done deal.(4)(13)I hope you are right pal, its time shezza and his entourage departed, it was garbage today!


07 Jan 2012 17:21:29
Maynard to Everton for 3 million. Adomah to Fulham 1.5 million.(9)(12)Adomah 1.5 million youve got to be jokingI hope so but i'm hearing he will join southampton mondayPMSL ADOMAH worth more than Maynard plus ADOMAH still got 2 years left so try trebling that to 4.5 u might have a sniff


07 Jan 2012 17:04:56
Kebe to Leave this Week.
No sign of him as Reading loose shock defeat at home to some Swedenage or something!(14)(5)Set to sign for Cardiff if noone bid fails againHe's not going to Cardiff. Radio Leicester reporting he will come to Leicester this week.cardiff can't match the wages offered by Leicester.


07 Jan 2012 16:56:08
Aston Villa will sign these players;

Junior Hoillett
Marvin Sordell
Darren Gibson
Robbie Keane (loan)(8)(20)Only robbie keaneWhat is he going to do for 2 months he could not win spl with Celtic could not keep west ham up and could not get game for Liverpool or tot lolI hope you realise that villa have always been robbie keanes boyhood team and they are the only club he would come back to uk for,he wishes to fulfill his childhood dream,sounds familiar?As you said sound familiar because he said that Liverpool were his dream club since childhood !!He is taking the pee.........

ps keanes REAL childhood club was wolves by the wayI'm a Wolves fan and I have mates who know Robbie Keane personally, he is not a Wolves fan, they were not his childhood team, Liverpool were. He joined Wolves because they made his family welcome, they treated him correctly and he was well advised that he would stand more chance of breaking into the Wolves first team as at the time they were a second tier club. Robbie now has a huge soft spot for Wolves and loves the club but it's not the team he supports.No it was inter milan lolPossible, Though I doubt Hoilett would want to join us when Spurs etc.. are intrested.


07 Jan 2012 16:48:53
Junior Hoilett is on his way to Aston Villa for a fee of around £8 million.(8)(23)Another dreamerI'm a die hard villa fan mate but we really don't have £8m & he is worth about half of that with 5 months left on his contract.


07 Jan 2012 16:27:25
Sneijder to join Utd next week and Nani going in opposite direction to sweeten the deal and reduce Utd's outlay(9)(27)You need a lot more than WesleyYep a massive 3 points behind billionnaires city united need 464 players minimumRicardo Fuller also signing for Utd,SAF felt the Utd fans deserved a laugh.Nani isn't leaving , he is like Ronaldo .. you need him!


07 Jan 2012 16:23:35
Caulker refused permission to play for Swansea today in FA cup he is to be recalled by Spurs this week.(8)(8)I thought players can;t be recalled from a premiership loan?He is going to resign for bristol city after relising the championship is the greatest league in the worldYeyeyeRubbish rumour, he was signed on a season long loan, so unless both clubs mutually agree to terminate Tottenham cannot recall himUnless there is a recall clause in the loan contract


07 Jan 2012 16:06:49
Blackpool are gowin up this season cos they wer in the prem last season.(8)(28)Get of the drugs pal no chanceWhat relevance does this have?And man utd will b in champs lge final cos they played in it last season...........oh......Cash straped i heardArsenal will play birmingham city in the league cup final because it happend last yearYes of course they are dude...

Liverpool to sign Hoilett and Hamsik. This deal will see LFC fork out app £42.5 million. There is also a possible recall of roberto aquallani.(11)(23)Jesus christ you scousers are a clever bunchAlbertoWe've really missed roberto. Hopefully we can bring in mike hoillet and geoff hamsik as you've statedHamsik, as in the player at Napoli? well that would be a great adition. He is one heck of a player! Very giftedHamsik, you're having a laugh .. LFC can not give him Champions league football that he wants.

here's a thought seen matty fryatt was left out of the hull squad for the fa cup today do u think we could be seeing him back at walkers just a thought after all it was pearson who took him there and i felt he never wanted to leave.(2)(6)Sure they left him out, its a cup game. plus, any bid made by pearson will be turned down immediately unless he bids tens of millionsMaybe Hull want him to go back to Leceister so they can bring someone in who can actually score goalsWe dont want him back thankWe dont play at the walkers stadium either... why do you make up such rumours when you dont even know where we play? get a lifeYeh the scout was doing his help badge .

A Reading scout was at Huddelfields game last night and looking at Jordan Rhodes

Meanwhile Kebe was at Upton Park an is injured apparently for the game at The Mad Stad today(6)(14)A Reading scout. As well as 8 premier league scouts. And countless other football league scouts...Reading are a selling club to finance the running of the club, there is now way they will invest that kind of money on one player

neil lennon says he is not willing to sell celtic center midfielder ki sung yueng(12)(4)In other news, no one wants to buy him, apart from teams with no money - villaI would not take any Celtic player none are premiership class it's like the blue square leaugeWhat like kayal being linked with man utd, hooper with toon and qpr, spurs after forrest - do you want me to continue ??Villa do have money, Eck stated he hasn't got the money but MON did that and then he spent £45m in that window.

Rhodes will never join Reading and is comited to stay and play for Huddersfield.(16)(15)Until someone comes in and offers 20-30k a week..He's not no footballer is committed if he goes it will be to the premier league for a lot of moneyNo EPL players are loyal to their clubs anymore since the sky deal, there is plenty of loyal players in scotland. Allan mcgregor could've trebled his wages in the summer by going to the EPL but stayed and signed a new 6 year contract with the gersReading will sign a striker this window and Rhodes is a great fit for what they need plus the royals have the money because due to mills, long and then kebe whom they will sellWylde and Forrest stayed to,they could have joined Bolton.Even Broadfoot could have joined Blackpool when they were in the EPL.He stayed signed a new deal,and fought for his place.I cant see much loyalty in the EPL to.Gerrard and Carrager being the exeptions.AllyMan City are the epitimy of lack of loyalty. With Gareth Barry being the worst... Complete money grabber

Malaga have reportedly offered 10mill euro for Dortmund forward Lucas Barrios, then they can hopefully off load Rondon to either Newcastle or Arsenal for around 15mill then sign Damiano or Wellinton.(6)(3)Like newcastle would spend 15m on a player or ashley give them 15m to spend? haGood point but they were interested in him in the summer he is a descent player just not doing it for Malaga this season ,think he is missing playing with Baptista due to the latter being injured! I think he would do well at Newcastle with Ba or Amiobi then you could send best to Leeds! Hey here's hoping!Rondon is class and there would be a possibility of a sell on which the fat man would be licking his lips at... 15 mil now and then when he starts scoring in the prem either Liverpool will pay 35 + or manc will

Heard on the grapevine that Bristol City have been keeping tabs on Lee Cook (Left winger). Currently on loan at Leyton Orient from QPR. Quality winger but injury prone. Simon Cox at WBA is also a possible target depending on where Nicky Maynard ends up.(7)(5)


07 Jan 2012 12:32:38
I'm not sure Rhodes is worth 6m to Norwich. Holt & Morrison have 7 a piece and Jackson will hit form if he gets a run in the squad.
In defence Ayala looked very good at QPR, and Elliot Ward & Tierney should be back soon. If we had 6m to spend i would try to get Snodgrass and possibly McGugan from Forest who can play attacking mid or striker. I reckon of all those rumoured, Snodgrass is the player who would make the biggest difference to Norwich?(7)(3)For 6million you aint gunna get both snodgrass and mcgugan just aint gunna happen!

tommoI agree, but Holty is 31 in April, so you never know.Have also heard that Ward and Holt will be used to try and lure Leeds to selling Robert Snodgrass.Haha good one. its snodgrass not messi.

"Swindon will not be selling Richie this window! Richie wants promotion with Town and Swindon are not in a position to sell. Stop dreaming!" One little thing if he can play in a higher division again why would he stay at Swindon.

all this ste on here about jordan rhodes not being good enough as his only playing in league one. when was the last time someone playing in that league was scoring goals like he his or is being talked about every week with scouts from bigger clubs going to watch his every game. this lad knows where the goal is alright the defenders maybe not the same as in the premier league but also the service he would get in the premier league (no disrepect to huddersfield) would be better. this lad will score goals wherever or at what level he plays, over the xmas period sky gave him a goal of the day with his nice back flick if rooney drogba etc had scored it everyone would have been on about it. i feel a bit of sour grapes and jealousy on here because the lad is scottish and doesn't play for your team keep up the good work jordan its a pleasure to see ye scoring goals and enjoying the game even if ye only in league 1. p.s im not a huddersfield town fan or scottish just a lad who follows a premiership team and would love to see him in the top flight give the lad some credit.(13)(7)Remember Jermaine Beckford? He did well moving from league 1 to prem (NOT)Beckford scored 10 gls in prem in about 20 games so he was not a dud,it is just that every player has his price and 4 mill was too good to turn down.Think you would find it was 8 goals in 34 gamesRhodes is good enough for Championship but proberly not premiership

chelsea are still interested in luring barca ageing playmaker xavi to stamford bridge, but their main attempt for the player will be in the summer

Forza newspaper(5)(18)I heard this too! cos i got told thiago iniesta busquets and fabregas were making it difficult for pep to pik xavi cos of his age, and wanting to give others the game time, so apparantly he wants to sel him for a big price!Absolutely no chance, Xavi is Barcelona's best player, going nowhere


07 Jan 2012 12:07:05
Anyone remember the 35 million for carrol, newcastle got the final payment on the first of january and most of the players they bought in the summer where paid for by selling on nolan and enrique
Newcastle have one of the most attractive bank balances in the league with no debt and new shirt sponsorship the club are running at a profit
Newcastle can afford to buy and will attract big players(19)(18)Haha back to bed little boyNewcastle will not buy anyone cause your chairman is greedyThat's great ! Shane BA will be off thanks to a clever £10 million buyout clause installed by the wealthy lawyers in newcastleSo why is it that they just printed the new sponsor over the top of the old one in the game on wednesday?? if they've got such a good bank balance surely could have afforded a new top?!?!?!Because they only just announced the sponsor around a day or less before


07 Jan 2012 11:31:44

07 Jan 2012 11:10:06
Get ready for the Wolves fans saying he's worth 10million plus even though he's only on the bench !

But i've been tol Hodgson sees Doyle as the perfect partner for Shane Long and he's the only real target in January.

Has asked club to go all out to get him. Isn't bothered about midfield as he knows most of the injuries will clear up soon. And defence has been holding its own(10)(9)Kevin doyle would only warm the bench for wba alsoHE IS WURTH 10 MILLION PLUS LOL

Kidding. But as a Wolves fan I would like to see us get a decent sum for him, 8 or 9 million actually sounds about right to me and would give us some decent money to go hunting for a good strike partner for Fletcher, maybe Jones from Stoke like has been talked about.To be honest as a wolves fan i was disappointed that we didnt attempt to get long as he would get the best out of doyle. however i cant see mick selling any big players in jan. this is a potential mover however if we get a new first team striker (kenwyn jones has been mentioned) then there is a chance of this happening in the summerI hope he does go down the road to the inbreds, he's been rubbish all season for us. But I've heard he's Villa bound for £6.5m and Wolves are buying Kenwyne Jones for £7m. Also heard that McCarthy tried to convince the board to back him in his bid for Shane Long but they veto'd it and hence he went to the inbreds.

Demba Ba and Tim Krul on their way to tottenham, Colocini could be heading for arsenal/liverpool, tiote off to chelsea and cabaye off to man utd after his good performance against them wed night(10)(16)If Demba Ba's contract clause is true it might be a possibility although you'll prob have to compete with the pool, the mancs and the arses but Krul won't be going anywhere.Sad Mackems should get their facts right before spouting cp on here. If one of your fantasy post came true it would give Newcastle enough money to buy Scumderlands FULL squad and retire them and turn the stadium of plight into a parkland so it was full on a weekend. SMB SMBWhy would Newcastle lose 5 of it's first team when playing to the standard they are?Maybe 4 199 Mill for all themThat would be great for Newcastle
Ba - 15m
Krul - 10m
Tioté - 17.5m
Coloccini - 5m
Cabaye - 12.5m
That should be enough to make a wonder partnership of Caroll and TorresSpur pulled out of a 14m off for ba on medical history and medical advice ..its only now that they find out ba has a 10m release claues there thinking of taking a punt..but on the understanding they wont get no insurance for him as the same newcastle couldnt get him insured and stoke city couldnt eitherI have noticed no one is talking about sunderland players going anywhere coz no one wants them coz they are all sThe Spotrs Direct Arena is now full-but i recall when you used to get 14000!! you must be one of those after Keegan bandwagon supporters who always goes on about the wonerful support!ftmCan never recall Joker Park or the Stadium of Shie ever being full. Cant even fill your ground when the the Toon army come to Scumberland. I hear Heskey is on his way.It actually got as low as 12500 v Bournemouth under Ardiles, just before Keegan arrived... Mags should never have sacked Ozzie, best manager they ever had! FTMCarroll won't be ging back to newcastle and torres ha, heskey will do and will help you lot get back to the championship where you belong, 15m for Ba, when he has a 10m buy out clause, all them players will be gone either this window or next and ashley will keep the profit as he is owed 133m off newcastleI am not a supporter of any of the above mentioned clubs but between the two I believe Sunderland have the better support not in numbers at present but when you consider the keegan /Hall times when money was not really any problem and the relative success they had then, and take into account the lack of success,, and for long periods of lack of money at Sunderland then i think sunderland have the better support, and under a great manager like MON they are going to take off. Especially if he is given financial support by the men in charge.Above post wrote by an incompetent person who is obviously sneaking on mummys computer while she entertains her clients.It was mike ashleyI am not a sunderland fan... really you sound like one... Newcastle are and always have been the bigger club, they get bigger players they get bestter support end of... Newxt you will be saying wolves are bigger than the Toon or Leicester etc etc

Few whispers from st Mary's -
There is no interest in sharp or Maynard,
Lukas jutkewich deal is done and will join on Monday after saints and coventry meet in the cup today(13)(7)No interest for Sharp and Maynard was announced on Solent so it's hardly a whisperWouldn't it be better if he wasn't cup tied?......although, of course he may not play today. That would be a give-away.^^ It WAS a whisper....i had the sound turned down!Did the whisper also tell you about Jutkiewicz's back injury?Did the whisper already tell you that Billy Sharp has agreed a deal with Leicester? Jutkiewicz was not in the side today so he will be joining in the near future once he has recovered enough to pass the physical

This isn't a football rumour it's a football fact. Jordan Rhodes WILL be sold in January. The only thing that could prevent that would be a serious injury to the lad.
Unfortunately for Huddersfield fans, scoring 5 goals on Live TV, when your one of the most hyped and talked about players, at the beginning of a transfer window in front of dozens of football scouts, representing teams in higher leagues than yourselves, is not the way to ensure that you will not be sold.
I don't doubt that Rhodes loves Huddersfield and I'm sure he'll always be grateful to them but when the Sunderland's, Newcastle's, West Ham's, Leicester's, Leeds' (presuming Bates can find his cheque book), Celtic's, Ranger's just to mention a few come in for him he'll be long gone.
At least Town will be anywhere between 3 - 10 mill richer.
Let the bidding war begin.......(16)(10)A fact is something you know to be true. This is just speculation and therefore NOT a fact.This lad is going to be some player in the future am just gutted my club everton are skint and have no chance of signing him,at todays prices hes defo worth more than 7 million.Maybe the lad should have put inevitable. Best bit of sense read on here for a while. For you Huddersfield fans just because you don't want something to happen doesn't mean it won't. Money talks. Only question now is how much will he go for. And before you give me grief I have sympathy because whatever you get won't be worth it if you don't go up...And My Club Ipswich who brought him up through the youth team will get a sizable chunk of any transfer money, so the higher the better £10 million +Fact is m8 he,s not for sale!
our owners a lifelong fan and worth 400 million and we dont need the cash...he,s also contracted for 3 more seasons after this oneA fact is something you know to be true. This is just speculation and therefore NOT a fact..........My apologies, I thought this was a football rumour site I didn't realise that this was an English test.
I must try harder.
Lets try Maths.
Subject 21 yr old lad with potential world at his feet.
League one play off contenders = possible promotion to championship
OR Championship play off/automatic promotion contenders = Premier League
OR Premier League Team = Cups, Fame, Living the Dream, Wealth, Cars, Houses, International Caps, Women.
Not a do the Maths.He isnt worth 7 million.. how do you know if he can produce the goods against much players in premiership ?I will put money on him not leaving this month.Rhodes will be sold but not till the summerThey should put im on trial first in case hes rubbish in premTo the guy saying Rhodes isn't worth 7 million.
How do you know he CAN'T produce the goods in the premiership?
How much were Andy Carrol and Fernando Torres? How many times have they produced the goods this season?
How much did Arsenal pay Southampton for unproven teenager Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?
7 million is chicken feed by today's prices.I don't doubt for one second that Huddersfield don't want to sell Rhodes but in the end it will be inevitable. There were more scouts at last nights game then at a jamboree.
Bigger teams will come in for him. If Town don't accept, Rhodes will almost certainly put in a transfer request. It'll become a saga, affect the player, affect the team,affect the fans, affect results and in the end he'll still go.
The other reason Town will reluctantly accept is so that they can try and get somebody in to replace him.
I just hope it doesn't damage Town's chances too much and I hope they get his proper value.I hope he comes to glasgow celticWhat happens when you get promoted and he scores 4 all season in the championship and can't sell him for a pack of polosMaybe Pilkington's absence from Norwich Squad today is because he is back in Huddesfield talking to Rhodes about making a move to Norwich, Lee Clark also knows how brilliant the training facilities and club set up is.
LOL - I would love to think Norwich would make an offer of £6M + add on's because that might just make it happen.
I think under Lambert & his coaches he would get a great opportunity to show what he can do at the highest level, if he goes to one of the big six, he will struggle to get a game, and it may hinder his development, and since Keane let him go at ipswich, hoiw much we enjoy having him at Carrow road.


07 Jan 2012 10:37:48
Pearson is a mercenary. It is laughable to hear talk of his 'loyalty'. He conned Hull and he will do the same at Leicester. If he get's offered more money elsewhere he will be off like a shot.(9)(2)Got offered treble his money at lcfc, hat fulls to spend on his squad, and hes closer to home... No brainer reallyYe most probably right mate but is he good enough to manage at a higher level dont think so


07 Jan 2012 10:20:40
Stoke to sign Nedum Onuoha in a deal belived to be around 2 million. This comes from inside the club.(11)(12)Rubbish QPR have put in a 3m bid, yeah man city will except less money for him, get real foolQpr have no put no bids in for any1 because all funds have been stopped and have been for the past week .untillt he warnock situ is sortedHe got offered treble his money at leicester, hat fulls of money to spend, and hes closer to home. No brainer reallyThe fact that Stoke have put in a lower bid than QPR isn't necessarily a problem in this case. Man City are very keen to unload Onuoha but the player isn't keen to go to London. Even if Stoke bid lower than QPR they may still get their man.Put it this way Stoke is a more attractive and safe option than QPR and Leicester haha. The lad gets to stay close to hope compete in the top 10 and have European football to look forward to, no brainier in my opinion.


07 Jan 2012 10:09:24
From everything I've heard don't know weather there true or not were interested in:
Billy sharp
Nicky Maynard
Tadanari lee (almost complete)
Grant mcCann (injured)
Nathaniel clyne
Marvin sordell
Lukas jutluewicz(however you spell his name)
Simon cox(3)(13)According to wiki lee is off to southampton

It was confirmed on the clubs official website that Lee was in talks with English club Southampton on 4 January 2012. Lee is training with the Championship side whilst a work permit application is being reviewed.[7]Who,s interested in these players?Jutkiewicz used to play for swindon. right speling of nameAnd it's whether not weather. You've just listed most players that have been rumoured to be linked with Saints on these pages for months. In fact, only Lee, who was not rumoured has actually happened! Add Ruiter, Kebe, Phillips and Lewis and i think you will have the full set. Oh and we are selling Fonte, Schniederlin, Lallana and Lambert. B/S!Always awkward when one person attacks another for their lack of literacy whilst misspelling the word 'spelling'. Yowzers!


07 Jan 2012 10:30:44
Elokobi tracked by a number of Championship clubs(13)(2)Yeah ipswich town want him as a central defender can play left back and right back also


07 Jan 2012 10:01:09
I would never have imagined a Scottish guy playing in league 1 would be the most talked about player on this site, but it will stay just talk.(3)(8)Couldn't agree lessHe's hardly a Leo messi is heYeah, he couldnt hack it preem league he has no pace he had 5 tap ins against wycombe or something woww hes a scrawn aswell no power


07 Jan 2012 09:58:56
St Etiens defender,Fernandez has left Leicesterr city on lone Nigel Pearson said that he wasn't getting into the team at LCFC either so he just had to go back(2)(4)He won't get in Pearsons team at leceister, he's been known to smile occasionly. judas can't be having that now can he?


07 Jan 2012 09:56:06
All the hype about Rhodes, just leave him alone, the expectation on him now is massive, where ever he does go he is going to be expected to score 40 goals from then to the end of the season, thats the trouble when a young player come on the seen we put to much presure on them, then they get there big move and there a massive flop. We all need to remember as well, yes he is good player butt all his goals have come in league 1, lets see how good he is when he comes up agianst Vidic, Terry, Kompany, then we will see how good he really is.(6)(6)The way terrys played this season rhodes would fancy his chancesAlso ferdinand, wolves back four, villa's defence, evertons defence too, and qpr too, he would fancy his chances againstg all of them

tommoGiven the service he would get in the pl, this young lad will score against anyone.


07 Jan 2012 09:51:22
Ricky Lambert will complete a £3.4m move to West Brom in the next 7 days. I have this from an insider at the club who undrstands that Lambert is desperate to play in the Premiership and is worried about Southampton's form. I am told be also has a strong desire to play for a bigger club, meaning West Brom are the perfect match for his services.(16)(24)Double the money n maybe theyd thnk bout sellingAnd 1-2-3 you are back in the room, with your action men and teddies.Lambert would never leave the fans love I'm and he loves the club1 Saints are top so either way he could be playing prem football next year
2 Southampton are bigger.
West Brom vs Everton- 23,000
Saints vs Bristol City 30,000 (attendance)This seemed believable until bigger club =West Brom!West Brom are not a bigger club than Southampton, Lambert has already said he is going nowhere, as has Adkins. Southampton are owned by multi-billionaires and have no need to sell a player who clearly isn't asking to leave.Does that mean that L1 Saints are a bigger club now than they were in the Prem just because St Mary's is bigger than the Dell!? Grow up. Wouldn't touch Lambert at that priceSouthampton will be in the prem next year when west brom championship think onI would have to say that west brom are bigger, they have many established players and the chances of them staying up are better than saints getting promoted- can anyone honestly say that they can see qpr Wigan Bolton Blackburn wolves finishing above west brom. Also please don't judge a team on their stadium plus the rumour is quite ridiculousWhy in the hell would lambert go to a struggling team like wba when he is in a team on the up with money in the bank the fans adore him and all he has to do is walk out his door on a sat night to the pub over the road for a punch up he loves it.Just becuse you got a bigger groun d dongt mean nothing.southampton will fail in the play offs as there not good enough and wba will finish mid table.lkiving in the pastEither you or the 'insider at the club' are full of B/S. Factually, a pre h & s Dell had a bigger capacity than St Marys. Just as well, 'cos you won't 'touch Lambert at that price'. I have good mates who are Baggies fans and you don't chant 'boing boing' for nothing!Saints fans are the Liverpool of the championship,totally dillussional, you,ll do well to make the play offs ,arrogant twonksLambert no. wba to go down possible. saints ta finsh in the way we finsh. long way ta go but was looking good up till december. oh sarah sarah whatever will be will be we have just been ta wembley oh sarahLambert is a good championship striker,he,ll be right at home in southampton for the next few seasons,he can even have Maynard for company,big club my arse,what have you lot ever won West Ham,Leicester,Middlesboro,Cardiff,
Leeds,are all bigger than youse lot.Like how the crowds have come back at southampton now they doing well. u didnt get big crowds in league 1. haha u only sing when ur winning!Thought this was about transfers not about who has got a bigger ground!! Lets get back to the transfer rumours pleaseSouthampton are the biggest club in.......
.......southampton......Actually southampton averaged between 22 and 23 thousand in league, where as wba who were 2 leagues higher averaged only 1500 more.Average 22160 in league 1 now 26097. Haha your wrong, again.


07 Jan 2012 09:45:04
Bolton to sell Cahill to Chelsea £7m. Money will be used for a new CB and striker. Eyeing up move for Nickica Jelavic £6.5m (Glasgow Rangers) with Robbie Blake and/or Tuncay to be moved on.(6)(12)Bolton have got no money, there skint simple as that. So the money is going straight in the bank


07 Jan 2012 09:44:16

Ronaldo set to join Saints on a free - NO? - Just as ridiculous as some of the other nonsense on here, I am constantly amazed at the number of 'sources'. Vast majority are probably Joe down the pub who used to play football with someone who knew someone who knew.......(13)(5)Im a saints fan and i agree some stuff on here actually makes me laughRonaldo to join the mighty Saints! Amazing! Just wait until I tell Joe...Ronaldo is not good enough for Saints!

DrchoGoonerYup your right there ,, but why do you insist on reading it then ??It might be rubbish but this is a RUMOURS site - for rumours!!!
Saints been linked with just about everyone but us proper Saints know that NA keeps it quiet till its done - we aint gonna hear nothing here first.
Oh and yes Ronaldo joining Monday!!Your're correct its a" rumours" site,I have a fact.................your all a bunch of jelous prks.we'r top,loadsa £, not ready 2go bankrupt and quality players wana play 4us! + WHO THE f R W.BROM!! YO YO team. lee sfcWhat the fat one??


07 Jan 2012 09:41:25
Rhodes is probs on £3,000 a week so when a club comes in with a £5mil bid for him and offer him around £15-50 grand a week you cant tell me he will turn this down. all you Huddersfield fans must be dreaming if you think he will stay at your club no matter what offer you get,(12)(4)Listen pal, we could offer him 15k a week dont you know who our chairman is?Listen pal who could offer him 15k a weekIf you could offer him £15k then do it or you will lose him. well hang on £15k with Huddersfield or £50k with prem. ummmm i think he might stay with huddersfield to be honest hahaDoesn't matter if he gets offered a million a week, he's under contract. Won't be going anywhere without the Chairman's say so.It's not about the money it's about ambition. When little Jordan was playing football with jumpers for goalposts I very much doubt he was imagining been a famous Huddersfield player (no offence).
If West Ham or a prem club come in for him he'll be gone and blocking his move will damage and disrupt the team too.If player wants to leave then club will have to let him go. thats how it works these days regardless of the clubs wishes. also cause of the football league fair play rules, League One and Two clubs will not be permitted to spend more than 55% of their turnover on player wages from next season. so 15k i dont think so palHudders fans are silly,you can not pay him 15k as there is a wage cap in L1next season will be more trouble with new rules as their turnover is very small meaning they have to reduce their wage bill.Anybody heard about Modric wanting to leave Spurs? Unless ridiculous money is offered this 'debate' is pointless until the summer.


07 Jan 2012 09:35:46
Aston Villa are ready to sell James Collins to QPR for £5 million and will move for West Brom's Jonas Olsson as his replacement.(12)(10)Why would olsson go to a sinking ship like villa...sht


07 Jan 2012 09:31:24
LOL at the West Ham fan calling Kebe average. Wasn't so "average" when we brushed you aside. He even had time to stop and pull up his socks. On his day Kebe is the best winger in the league.(6)(8)I agree he's good, but wouldnt go as far to say bets winger in the league..theres plenty of decent wingers all on par....adomah, lallana etcNo that title goes to snodgrass1. Adam Lallana
2. Albert Adomah
3. Robert Snodgrass
4. Cameron Stewart
5. Wilfred ZahaSnoddys best in leagueWhittinham best midfield in the league end of convoLallana
(Young Hull winger on loan from utd)

Just a selection of Championship wingers I'd rather have in my team over Kebe any day.1. Ross Wallace
2. Adam Lallana
3. Albert Adomah
4. Keith Treacy
5. Jimmy Kebe

Zaha centre forwad mateLallana
(Young lad at hull on loan from utd)
Lua Lua
CohenCompletely agree. Kebe has got skills but his is lazy. There are many wingers better than him. Whittingham, Zaha, Adomah, Snodgrass, Lallana etc.. And anyone can beat anyone in any league. Dont see Reading doing too well in the league baring in mind you apparently have the best winger. 5th and 8 points off the top. I remember man utd being top of the league when they had the best winger.. Ronaldo!Robson
RedmondTotally agree with post, top two are best wingers in Championship.Zaha ,llana


07 Jan 2012 09:28:34
Bolton will sell Cahill today 7 mill and bring in tim ream in as replacement for 2.25 million and a striker nick maynard possible 3 million(7)(9)


07 Jan 2012 09:20:50
Norwich and Reading are to table bids for Jordan Rhodes for £5m. Reading will use the money that they received for Shane Long and Matt Mills for the bid. If these bids are rejected Norwich will increase their bid to £6.25m. If this bid is rejected then Norwich and other clubs will table offers in the summer.(8)(10)I don't think Paul Lambert would go as far as spending anywhere near that on a striker.I'm a Norwich fan. I would love to have Rhodes at the club, but I think he will go to bigger club than us in all fairness. But the main reason is, Lambert doesn't go out and spend big on one player, also the talk is we have only 1.5 million to spend this month. So 6.25 million on one player? Personally cannot see it happening.


07 Jan 2012 09:20:09
QPR to go back with improved offers for samba, Joliet and yakubu after all 3 initial offers turned down which were 5m,4m & 1.5m(6)(8)They can off as much as they like no1 will go to a team who will be playing in the championship next seasonAnd blackburn won't be in championship ?


07 Jan 2012 09:13:56
ok i will get in early with our excuses. didnt realise pl was going to field such a weakened team, it was a pen, burnley played out of theair skins as they had nothing to play for, our fa cup run recently has been awful. all is forgiven tho for this year tho as we really do need to concentrate on maintaining our PREMIERSHIP status. dare u get in early with your clubs excuses??? on another note liverpool u should be ashamed of what u did to that poor boy last night.(7)(1)I'm sorry but it seems like there was one idiotic fan not the whole crowd, not the players not the management and not the owners!! Get a grip you person it's people like you that cause more problems than needed. Do not judge us by one gobby liitle boy!


07 Jan 2012 09:09:01
Contrary to his own Twitter assertion that he will stay at Barnet until the end of the season, I have it on very good authority that Izale McLeod will be re-signed by MK Dons this week on a 2 year contract. Fee agreed, thought to be £375k(7)(2)


07 Jan 2012 08:57:24

Jordan Rhodes, likes Huddesfield
so much he put himself in the window
last night,
7 premier lg teams had him watched
last night as well as a couple of teams
in the top 6 of the Chumpionship, Do
you Hudds fans think he will be with you
on Feb 1st, He's off to the highest bidder(20)(4)I think he'll only go if he pushes for a move himself, HTFC are supposedly well funded and have no need to sell by all accounts, may be more likely he'll go in the summer unless he himself wants to nowTotthenham were watching him for crying out loud he will leaveLove to have him at Saints - but hes gonna go prem - good player.


07 Jan 2012 08:29:57
Jordan Rhodes - overated. Good league 1 player st in the premier league(12)(17)How would you know he's sh!t in the pl? Has he been given a chance? Or are you some unbelievable football scout that happens to work in mcdonalds!I disagree. He is clearly too good for league 1 but I think he should stick it out with Huddersfield until the end of the season. If they get promoted then we'll see just how good he is in the championship & whether he might be ready to take the step to the prem. I would hate to see him join a premiership club & just sit on the bench, so if Huddersfield don't make it up then I hope he joins a championship side that he will play week in week out & progress the right way. We see too many young players join top flight clubs before they are ready these days. Cracking prospect though!Torres and Carroll, what are they doing lately? Grab your envy and toddle off back to the tin pot club from where you sulk week in week out.Over rated. Like Pilkington was when he went to Norwich? Rhodes is far better than Pilks was he must be worth 10 million if we hold on to him until the summer and he continues in his current form.Some people never seem to amaze me.Is pilkington good enough inn the prem? yes, and he was at htfc last year

HahaYup put your entire lifesavings on none of them happening! noob!Why on earth would Arsenal transfer list Aaron Ramsey. He's one of their best midfielders.One fact spearing is the liverpool first team soo they wont loan him out and second fact arron ramsey hes one of best midfielders for arsenal this is worst one ive seen untrueIs this what has/is happening on the football manager game uve bin on the last 2 months lol07 Jan 2012 13:43:45

Harding to Brighton, given that Saints fans think we're dirty why would we want to sign one of their reserves ? Oh, I get it, after being lucky to stay on the pitch on Monday they think we want a thug. What a pity that Saints fans forget that they had more fouls against them than we did and that they are also below us in the fair play league.(1)(8)You ve got enough thugs in you re squad already just look at you re discipline record so far this season ste clubFair Play League Brighton are botton 24th so what does that tell everyone. Oh I forgot to say FACT!Thats why tour assistant manager gets sent off in games all i can say is fair play

jordan rhoads is not going nowere he is in talks to sign a new contract at huddersfield and also theo walkott will never go to liverpool he loves life at arsenal too much(3)(11)Every player with ambition will move on to the club who bids the most, Why was the TV camera's there last night, He will be sold the club won't be able to resistTo be padantic "not going nowhere" is double negative, implying he could be on his way out of Huddersfield...To be pedantic - padantic is not a word! {Ed025's Note - its only spelling mate...get over it!..Never go to liverpool, loves arsenal life to toure,adebayor,clichy,fabregas,flamini,henry,petit,viera just to name a few that went for money and more trophies. any arsenal player or any player will go for right money, ronaldo prime exampleDo not be stupid,Rhodes will not be signing new deal at hudders.wage cap in L1 and it's maximum is below ave wage in championship.If that happens (Shaqirir + Hazard) I'll be a happy camper. Need to buy 2 attacking players who walk into the team. We don't need squad additions.


07 Jan 2012 07:13:06
I'm a diehard fan but realistically until we are back in Champions League, which may be a couple of seasons away, Liverpool will not attract these European based big name players. They have tons of other top clubs interested who can guarantee CL. The focus will be on attracting young talent in England and S America. Any buys in this window will be from clubs lower in the table in England who can't refuse a decent offer.

So forget the likes of: Cavani / Lavezzi / Shaqiri / Ganero etc

Possibles:now or summer: Pilkington / Hoillett / Joe Allen / Rodallega / J Rhodes

We need a striker really badly but wouldn't touch D Bent with a barge pole. Not good enough. Kuyt will probably leave this window. Fantatsic servant but Prem too fast for him now.(14)(6)Shaqiri will come and lpool are ready to spend 30mil +cole whos doin unbeleivable at lille for hazard melwood source£30 million + Cole? Dreamer.

Spurs news, Harry to bid for anyone who he thinks he can get on the cheap even if the player is unlikely to play, just ask Steven Pienaar.
Liverpool looking to spend so clubs are over inflating prices as they hope they can mug them as badly as Newcastle did.
Man U attempt to sign up some more refs
Arsenal to leave it to the last minute and then panic.
Chelsea to p!ss off spurs again with modric bids.
Man City looking to buy god.
Jordan Rhodes to be bought for a stupid price and then realise that Prem defenders are slightly better than the likes of Hartlepool and the likes (sorry Hartlepool not having a dig just first name thst sprung to mind)(20)(4)Most spot on post ive read yetYeovil Town to sign more loan players - which other club signs a play on loan more than 5 times !!Except Rhodes will only be sold if someone bids a total package of at least £6 inc add on's, and personally I think he will prove you can make the step up to Premier league, if you have the natural ability, ask Lambert at Norwich he has a number of young players who he took from Div1 and they certainly don't look out of place in premier league.Exactly why he should come to norwich. If huddersfield accepted a bid from us pilkington would tell him to come and so would clarky cos he would rather see him starting and scoring for Norwich than sitting on the bench all the time or in the reserves.Fantastic reading of play!On behalf of all Hartlepool fans thanks for thinking of us, no offense taken as our defence is indeed gubbinsRhodes for £6, worth the gamble really

Darren Pratley linked with a loan move back to Swansea City. Bolton are also looking to take Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea as it was proven with Daniel Sturridge it can be a big success.


Bolton can't take Lukaku as they already have Kakuta on loan from Chelsea.

So that's rubbish. Just another wishlist


Romelu Lukaku cannot leave Chelsea on loan as he cannot play for three teams in one season, this has been highlighted many times


He can't play for 3 teams in the same calendar year. Stoke tried to get him on loan and were told to come back in January.


Actually lukaku can go on loan as long as its called an emergency short term loan 1-3 months but only to teams in the football league. now you do your homework!

Mate you are proper full of it... Darren Pratley will never play for the Swans again if Huw Jenkins the Chairman has his way, he can't stand the bloke!! Hence why Pratley Foxtrot Oscared out of Swansea at the end of the season...(12)(2)Kakuta back at Chelsea do your homework

Michael Uchebo to Stoke City from VVV Veleno - £1million Dependant on a workpermit.
Gary Cahill to Chelsea very close now personal terms agreed, just tying up a couple of loose ends.

Junior Hoillet is now part of a bidding war between Spurs and Stoke City. Both have bid in the region of £8million, however Hoillet thinks first team appearances are limited at Spurs and is in favour of the Stoke move to guarantee game time. But Harry being Harry has made a hands of plea to Stoke, giving them the option of taking Steven Pienaar of their hands in a cut price deal rumoured to be £3.5million.

Also QPR have had bids knocked back by Blackburn and Fulham regarding A. Johnson and Samba, Fulham are holding out for a bigger fee from QPR, and Samba himself has individually sounded out making a move to QPR on the basis their are title contenders looking for his signature, and it would be a step back rather than forward.(9)(3)QPR will come back with a bigger bid for Samba and if nobody else matches it off to loftus road he goesSpurs, QPR & Aston villa are intrested not stoke.And Warnock panic buying again, his last lot of misfits are crap,
THE ONLY WAY IS DOWN FOR YOU CRAP LOTNo player with any premship ambition will in JANUARY join any club thats looks like they will be playing championship football next season would be a major disaster for any find them selfs looking for a club 5 months after signing for a club whos payed them over the odds to attract them in the first place qpr fans wake up u will be feeding off the scraps other premship clubs leave behind

07 Jan 2012 02:15:55
Watford to sign Tommy Smith (QPR) and Ryo Miyaichi (Arsenal) on loan and Darius Henderson (Millwall) on a permanent deal. This also frees up Marvin Sordell to be sold, Southampton and Blackburn leading the race so far for the U21 hotshot.(10)(8)

ipswich looking at George Elokobi from wolves to play at centre back(5)(9)Please please, I'll stump up the money myself. Take him.He's just what we need along side Sonko

Danny Haynes will join Carlisle on a 1 year deal on Monday from Barnsley.(1)(16)


07 Jan 2012 01:22:08
Heard from a very reliable source that Middlesbrough are VERY close to a deal for Nicky Maynard for £4m. Apparently Tony Mowbray only interested in players he believes can play in the premier league and is not looking for a quick fix to help boro get there. I know for a fact boro have £5m to spend and Lukewich wants a move to Southampton where he grew up.(6)(20)

Newcastle will complete the signing of yanga mbiwa from montpellier for fee of 7.8 million next he his due for a medical next week

Newcastle have also made a 6.2 million bid for bayer leverkusen midfielder lars bender the 22 year old has been targeted as a long term replacement for tiote

Newcastle are also considering returing to a bid for out of favour psg striker mevlut erding and have enquired about an initial loan deal with a view to signing in the summer(11)(15)We don't have that to spend y do people make up rubbishJust because Newcastle started well doesn't mean they can sign anyone.

I have a very close source at ewood and the 10 mill 2 barclays been paid off also gunna b a few players coming and a few going jan! Ins. Nicky maynard 1.5mill bristol city, vedum onnuoha 5 mill man city, pennant stoke,granero real madrid loan, nathan cly 3mill bristol city and finally jordan 3.5mill rhodes huddersfield. OUTS hoilett stoke 6mill and pennant defo! Formica galatasry 4 mill, jason roberts bristol city part of deal for maynard, david goodwillie on loan to dundee, michael selgado to china, grella to doncaster 1mill andrews to cardiff 1 mill and if you work all that out properly we would of spent 1mill to get 6 new players I know 7 going but out that 7 2 played 1st team can see all this happening all young as well(0)(25)Thats cheered me up a bit,hilarious,cheers palSure Goodwillie would play in Division one for Dundee.Get a grip its not happening.If he is coming to Scotland on loan.It would be to the auld firm,and Rangers hopefully.AllyYou should be on stage mate, doing a comedy routine, a very close source -is it the tea lady ?
Venky's ditched Sam Aladyce and his team to reduce costs and get complete control of the club.
Putting Mr Kean in charge allowed them to sell Jones, no doubt Samba and Hoillet will be gone in this window, with a couple of cheap loans, or transfer ins, one things for sure you will not attract any top players, because Blackburn look nailed on certs for relegation.
Wake up and smell the flowers....

QPR linked with Swansea City centre-half Ashley Williams. The Welshman could make the switch to Loftus Road for 4-6m.(2)(15)Not for 6 mill maybe half thatSo we sell him at half price mid season then!!Shut up mate. Swansea are a much, much better team that qpr. They are a different class, as are Norwich. Even Fernandes cash wont help, because who wants to join a sinking ship.

Tadanari lee to Southampton for an undisclosed fee on a two and a half year contract from sanfreece Hiroshima. With tadanari receiveing £800,000 a year with that rising to 1,200,000 if they reach the premier league(11)(2)No much chance of a pay rise then!This was announced a few days ago. We'll know if he's allowed to stay here on the 12th. Everything else is sorted, we just need international clearance.I sometimes wonder if people just post stuff on here without ever reading what's been said before.Rickie Lambert to sign for SouthamptonShelvey back on loan maybe end of month quinn (sheff utd) part ex and cash with billy clarke and 1 more all thats going on at the seaside and no one going holloway told fleetwood chairman vardy a poss at end of season but i doubt it.
