doesn't anyone else just find it hilarious that the only manager whose openly pleaded with his club to spend money in january is the same person whose spent the most for the last few seasons? does mancini have no shame at all? hes got too many players, they are already helping other teams like spurs Adebayor is spurs leading scorer and highest assists. Mancinis only allowed 11 players, what next loaning Dzeko and Aguero out?

The Flying Dutchman - bergkamp... all the rest are mere mortals...

Chelsea should go for Remy or Ribery and possible Luka Modric

liverpool need some good defenders..they cant rely on skrtel ager and carra..they need some powerhouse defense..i find the midfield fine but a source said in a deal has been agreed to villa striker darren bent...

i dont know why arsenal dont take advantage of players on a contract year or players from clubs who are desperate to offload. Junior Hoilett and Christopher Samba are both available at blackburn and fill arsenals need at back and a forward who could replace gervinho. cahill is another option i am surprised arsenal dont pursue. lastly esteban granero was hugely successful at getafe but hasnt done much at madrid. he would be a great creative addition to the arsenal midfield. then in the summer wenger would only need to step up and make one marquee signing such as a gotze or hazard and arsenal would be serious title contenders

Chelsea fan here! Hopefully we will have cahill by this weekend, that would be a great buy!, but as for sales , mikel, boswinga, and malouda as well should all be allowed to go with alex and nico, and bring up a youth player or two, josh or paizon, and focus on a right back, feriera and jose can both go!

AVB loan out our future stars please! they need games! josh, kakuta, and pls let lukaku get some play as well

Liverpool doesn't need defenders in this window. They currently have the second best defense, statistically speaking, in the entire EPL!!! Is there anything on Luuk De Jong potentially transferring to Liverpool? Also, what of the Darren Bent rumors? I hear they got quoted £27M and decided to look instead at Luuk De Jong, which is definitely what they should be doing. Also, can you speak on the the battle between Man City and Liverpool to sign Birmingham winger/young talent Nathan Redmond? The thought of him and Raheem Sterling on the wings in the not-so-distance future sounds quite splendid
