Re: January Transfer Window Discussion - Rumours and Links welcome

If this is true about nothing happening does this kill the idea once and for all that you know who is in the know!!
In future I will listen to CT and not any "listen to me, I know what you don't!!" type.

Apologies if they announce a new signing later this afternoon of course.
