Transfer Rater: Christian Benteke to Chelsea, Andrea Ranocchia to Spurs

The latest transfer rumours from around the world.

Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the whisper.

Here are today's top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.

Kerim Frei to Birmingham City

According to various outlets, Birmingham City look set to sign Besiktas winger Kerim Frei for a reported £2.2 million. The former...

After a slow start, Allardyce needs points as Palace battle relegation

The guys respond to your tweets about Chelsea, Sam Allardyce and the future of Trinidad and Tobago's national team.
Sam Allardyce exudes frustration as he admits his side simply don't know how to respond for a draw or win after conceding.

In the main stand, tempers are fraying. "Come *on*, Palace!" roars one voice in frustration. "Oh, what the f--- was that?" yells another. One fan doesn't even have the words. "Gargh!" he bellows as another pass goes astray.

On the touchline, Palace manager Sam Allardyce chews ferociously. He lost the England job after only one game and then, three months later, returned to the sharp end of the Premier League. This is his sixth match in charge. He hasn't won one yet and now he's losing at home in...

Man City and Spurs to draw, Chelsea to ease past Hull, Stoke upset United?

Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes pick the winners of the best Premier League match ups this weekend.
The Exploding Heads preview the huge game between Man City and Tottenham, and the Dembele-go-around.

Another weekend of top Premier League action is upon us, and it's a big one for Pep Guardiola as his Manchester City side take on Tottenham. City have struggled in recent months, while Tottenham are on the rise, but who will come out on top at the Etihad?

Meanwhile, Chelsea have Diego Costa back in the squad but don't seem to need him that much as they take on lowly Hull City seven points clear at the top of the table.

Liverpool host Swansea, while Manchester United travel to Stoke and Arsenal will...

Palace must keep focused on adapting to Allardyce's methods vs. Everton

The FC panel look at the congested relegation fight in the Prem and if anyone has a hope of making a resurgence.

A win in any competition does not signal a turnaround in form. It doesn't confirm a mentality switch or a willingness to adapt to new techniques and new tactics. Crystal Palace beating FA Cup replay opponents Bolton Wanderers on a cold Tuesday night does not improve the club's chances of defeating an Everton side that appears to have found its Premier League form.

Crystal Palace must do so much more than they did against Bolton if they are to have a chance of getting anything from the game; the...

Crystal Palace defence dismal in heavy West Ham loss

Andy Carroll scored a goal for the ages as West Ham rebounded with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Andy Carroll scored a goal for the ages as West Ham rebounded with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Andy Carroll reacts to his wonderfully timed volley and West Ham's convincing win over Palace.
Slaven Bilic praises not only his squad, but the fans, for urging them on to a commanding 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

In case Sam Allardyce wasn't entirely aware of what the challenge ahead of him looked like, this defeat would have provided a significant reality check. While Crystal Palace started the game well, a failure to take chances was then punished by West Ham's ability to capitalise on the Eagles' defensive errors. Allardyce's side look incapable of keeping a clean sheet.


It really is difficult to find any from this performance -- the result might however highlight what the club need to do in...
