Hearts and Dundee Utd are chasing Fulham midfielder Wayne Brown.


Aiden McGeady will be moving to Birmingham for around £6m. I know Aiden really well and he confirmed they wanted to sign him.

All of these won't happen but at least 50%will, also heard Man utd had a verbal agreement with Steve Bruce that craigGordon would join Man UTD For 4mill and Ben Foster if he could prove his fitness but now that he is injured again Boruc may be worth a punt At 4Mill


Man Utd are looking to sign 4 players between now and the world cup these are Jack Rodwell from everton with either Wes Brown or John O'Shea going the other way, Yohann Gourcuff from Bordeaux who Man Utd got first refusal on when they bought Obertan in the summer, then either David Silva or Angel Di Maria with Nani going in the opposite direction and lastly either Akinfeev or Neuer with Kucscak going the other way. Gibson will also be leaving with Scholes and Neville retiring but Giggs staying for one more year. so in summerary
David Silva/Di Maria


Peterborough are set to offer Hearts manager, Csaba Laszlo an escape route from Tynecastle. Laszlo is unhappy about the support gien to him by the Hearts' owner, Vladamir Romanov and will get several million to spend to keep Posh in the Championship and then aim for promotion the following season.


Will all chelsea man utd fans and any other fans stop posting crap about torres signing for you he won't sign for any other english club get over it and move for rumours the only 1 that is a cert is dossena going in jan.


Hibs and Hearts are keeping tabs on Lancaster City's 17 year old left back Alex Kenyon. Hearts are also interested in taking Reggina centre back Kris Thackray on loan.


To ynwa pogrebnyak is at stuttgart if you know your facts.and silva to man utd is done deal...villa will join chelsea.arsenal will sign mcgregor in jan ..6 mill fee agreed.... boyd is sitting out his contract and will see who buys gers or will move south for free..davis to b'ham is also done deal... watson was recently seen at ibrox....


Gareth Bale is set to join Birmingham City, somewhat controversially after describing the West Midlands outfit as "the armpit of England". It is thought that Bale was keen to join fellow Welsh international and best friend, former Spurs defender, Chris Gunter at Nottingham Forest. A move had been lined up for Bale to join up with the reds on a 6 month loan in January with an option to sign permanently at the end of the season. Tottenham had been prepared to take a loss on a player they signed for £5 million from Southampton just over a year ago, but will now look to take advantage of Birminghams financial situation and make a profit.

{editor's note – You do know that you made yourself look stupid by telling someone else they knew nothing about footie then saying that Torres would be signing for Chelsea don't you? Torres will not be joining Chelsea – he has already knocked them back a number of times and has no interest in playing for them!}


Right first things first i am myself a liverpool fan however would like it if other liverpool supporters stopped posting these riduclas rumours and fantasies they have, its like you guys believe football manager is a reality.

we are not signing any of the following so stop posting it

david villa– worth 40 million pound, we could offer four million maybe

david silva– worth 25–30 million pound, is good friends with xabi alonso and mikel arteta from across the park i can't see great words being put forward but yet agen we can't afford

sergio aguero– has a 192 million euros buy out clause, and if you paid any attention to spanish football you would have seen his interview were he clearly says i will not play in the premier league. he is a die hard athletico fan like torres, with one difference athletico arnt in debt no more, and have no need to sell like when they had torres, so no he is not coming

and danielle de rossi– are you being serious, rated the best devensive midfielder in the world, aptains roma, they are 3rd in there league, doing well in the europa league, worth far more than injury prone aquilani who we have already signed from roma so no he is not coming either.

real rumours, not the ones of ryan babel going for 20 million and albert riera in swap deal for aguero, pffft be serious

INS: anthony annan– a young norweigen/ghanaian devensive mid, fee in the region of 4 million from rosenborg

pavel pogrebnyak– zenit st petersburg striker for 6 million, a good link up player, plays alot like tevez, rooney, kaka, in behind

metzelder– defender from werder bremen, 5 million

it will be funded by the sales of players though as benitez has already been told that there is a maximum of 8–9 million to spend if he doesn't sell first

albert riera– 4.5 million to getafe
andrea dossena– 4 million to udinese

lucas is staying, babel is staying, masch is staying so no more stupid rumours please.




The danish media predicts that United will make a move for the danish international Simon Kjaer (palermo). He got a release clause set to be around £ 5, 5 mill. Milan is also interested.

Igor Akinfeev and Milos Krasic are expensive but could end up in Manchester.

Only on this site David Silva is a sure transfer for United. I don't think it will happen...

\The Red Devil from Denmark


Paul Mariner joining Plymouth as a coach is just the start of a far bigger link up with the united states for Plymouth. Four directors are presently in discussion with the Kraft family for them to take a majority holding in Plymouth Argyle. The hold up is the price due to there world cup bid and future valuation of club due to redevelopment and off field activities. In January David Gray will become a pernament signing from Man Utd in exchange for there apprentice Jamie Richards who is currently being tracked by Manchester United.


I don't know why supporters of other clubs keep coming up with these absurd rumors regarding United. The money is still there to spend, the Ronaldo money, the money earmarked for Tevez, as well as the annual 25mil. Furthermore, players like Carrick and Ferdinand will not be sold. Carrick came in and won 3 straight pl champs. Rio will only leave if a)he can't get past this back injury b) Real or Barca offer 50mil. Otherwise, when healthy he is still one of the best cbs in the world, and will not be sold. This leads to Rooney. Wayne Rooney will not be going anywhere, ever. He is low–key, lives near his entire family, and just had a kid with his new wife. No money will move him. I expect United to move for either Silva or Di Maria, with 25mil expected to be the price. Villa has been rumoured, but it won't happen as Real will likely promise him a move after the WC. The development of players like Obertan, Macheda, Nani, Wellbeck, King, Ljajic, etc will decide what moves will happen this summer, with SAF likely to move for any targets before the WC to avoid price inflation. A new GK will be bought with Akinfeev, Neuer, Asenjo, etc being considered


Manchester united news
ins= david silva, milos krasic, edin dzeko, rene adler and simon kjaer all for 80 million
out= carrick, nani, welbeck, park and gibson all for 53 million
next year united line up will be
adler, brown, kjaer, vidic, evra, krasic, silva, obertan, valencia, rooney, dzeko


Birmingham look set to snap up promising star Victor Moses from Palace for a fee belived to be about £4–5m, they will also look at bringing in giant striker Mark Janko. Blues won't make any silly signings they plan on developing steadily and not wasting their money. There is ruour though of a European based midfielder of a high calibre being chased. Possibly Emana, Riquelme or Biglia. A swap deal is on the cards involving McGeady and O'Connor plus around £5m and Gareth Bale is virually a done deal. Out will be O'Connor swap deal and McSheffrey, Bent (extended loan or nominal fee)& Martin Taylor going to Championship teams. Keep an eye out though for a cheeky bid for a big name player if the price is right but they won't waste money just for the name and McCleish gets final say and wants to imrpove the squad in set positions not just random players. Dont expect more than 5 signings but they should all be of a good quality...!!


Wenger interested in Misimovic and Dzeko of Wolfsburg, amongst his other targets.
priority for January is to bring in a CB to replace Senderos who will depart, probably to another premier league club for £5m. Wenger has eyes for the following: Subotic, Richards, Cahill, Sakho. he will wait til January to land Sakho once Silvestre departs, and mayb also Gallas. An interesting one would be getting Micah Richards, whose manager Hughes himself has said that Micah has "plateaud as a player". Trust Wenger to revive his career and make him a candidate for more national honours. Cahill's price tagis s inflated, and we know Wenger doesn't go for some1 unless he feels the price is right.
In the summer we will need a goalkeeper as well. Fabianski is just not good enough, Mannone needs time (in 2–3 years he will be fantastic) and Almunia may well return to Spain soon. Eyes are on Rob Green, who is frustrated with West Ham, but is one of their most reliable players and has always performed well against Arsenal.
Also in summer, we will need cover for alex song, who has been fantastic. he will go for ACN in jan, so may need loan cover for him and eboue. eyes on Mark Noble. Matuidi is signing new deal with St Ettiene and we will not go for Yaya Toure anymore with Kolo gone.prospects include Cabaye, Makoun and Inler.
Finally with Rosicky set to depart (too injury prone and nearly 30, though quality when fit) Wenger is looking for replacements. Ramsey, Wilshere and Merida look capable of bridging the gap, and remember we have Diaby Fabregas and Nasri. If Wenger nonetheless feels need to replace Rosicky, young Eden Hazard is a great candidate. a great dribbler, passer and finisher, plus being so young to it the Arsenal mould, Arsene should not miss out on this talent, though Utd Barcelona and Man City have an eye on him too. alternative is VdVaart who is available on the cheap.
up front, players being looked at are: Agbonlahor (ideal but unlikely?) Chamakh Dzeko Huntelaar
Jan in:
loan DCM, Richards
out: Senderos
Summer in: Green, Sakho, Noble, Hazard, (mayb a striker if one of the current ones goes)
out: Almunia, Silvestre, Gallas, Rosicky, Traore (not going to get ahead of gibbs/clichy), bendtner, Denilson(L).

team for kickoff next season:
RVP/Agonlahor (wishful thinking)

Silverware to the Arsenal this season, there's only 1 arsene wenger.


Bennedict McCarthy to Burnley in a move that will surprise Lancashire. £3m is the price being quoted while Dave Nugent will make the move permanent in January. Should Phil Brown lose his next 5 games with Hull he'll be sacked with Alan Curbishley the chosen man. The 5 games for Brown is given as with Bullard back in the team they have a player who can control games, like Gerrard or Lampard, so Brown has no excuses. Liverpool to sign Pandev for £3m rather than waiting until the summer as he's needed now.


Phil Brown will be axed by new Hull chairman Adam Pearson, and his replacement will be Cardiff's David Jones.

Cardiff chairman Peter Ridsdale is good friends with Pearson, from their time on the Leeds United board, and if Hull can offer Cardiff appropriate compensation Jones will be their new manager by the weekend.

Steve Coppell will take over as Cardiff manager, once Jones is at Hull.

In The Know.


To the guy that asked for birmingham rumours....
Since the new owner has given 40m to spend on players and wages, birmingham are looking at being the club that takes a risk on jermaine beckford for £4million but only if they fail to sign heskey. The manager also wants a new cb so he's lookin at senderos of arsenal, and steven taylor of newcastle...either will cost between £5m–£8m. Hes also looking for a playmaker in Barry robson of celtic.

United will not be signing villa...possibly silva as united need creativity, and they have good depth up–front. Feirdinand must go so hopefully we can get up to £30m from barca or madrid. Nani is leaving and carrick may too, although i think he's not bad after that display at the bridge. Expect defour in and hazard/douglas costa also. Plz Post

the phantom sheep


There have been a number of meetings with the top brass at Anfield and the major news to emerge from these meetings is that Liverpool have sounded out Fabio Capello to see if he would be interested becoming manager after the world cup. This is not to say Rafa will definately be sacked but they want somebody in place if he were ever to leave and Capello is first choice.
