It's Saturday morning and, as ever, I'm feeling pretty excited
about all the footie action we've got lined up for you.
There's always loads to talk about in the world of football,
but this week has been especially packed, both on and off the pitch.
Since last weekend, we've had the FA Cup fifth round draw,
last-minute transfers, a mid-week wonder goal
in the Premier League and Manchester City got
More about that in just a moment, but first, here's what's coming up
Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a football chairman
The panic, the last-minute speculation, the big-name signings?
Well, wonder no more, as I get a sneak peek behind
the scenes, with enigmatic chairman Dale Vince.
We meet Newcastle United's Dutch field sensation Georginio Wijnaldum
to find out how he's enjoying life in the Premier League.
And I will be asking you to get involved with Kickabout
by taking me on with this week's score predictions.
Loads to look forward to on today's show.
But time now to look back at some of the stories that have been
A certain Pep stole all the headlines on transfer
deadline day, when it was announced that he will replace Manuel
Pellegrini at the end of this season.
Pep, who is currently in charge of German champions Bayern
Munich have agreed a fee contract to become Manchester City manager
And from big-name managers to big-name movie stars,
Hollywood a list and Naomi Watts has agreed to become the honorary
president of a small Anglesey football club.
Naomi is taking on the role for Glantraeth FC, swapping millions
of fans for crowds of around 40 people.
Finally, in Tuesday's League Two encounter, Morecambe managed
to bag a 94th minute equaliser to deny Portsmouth all three points.
Nothing remarkable about that, you might think.
Barry Roche is there Barry Roche has scored!
Yes, goalkeeper Barry Roche headed home Sean
Miller's corner to learn a dramatic late point for the Shrimps.
And sticking with midweek action, we had a full round of fixtures
With eight matches on Tuesday and two more on Wednesday.
You can check out all of it behind me, but take a closer look
at the results at the top of the table.
The Foxes retain their three points lead, thanks to two late goals
And what a strike it was for the. first.
The England forward opened the scoring with a brilliant 25 yard
Elsewhere, Manchester City claimed a 1-0 victory over
Sunderland to keep the pressure on Leicester.
And, down at the bottom, Villa sank to another defeat
against West Ham and Newcastle remain in the relegation zone.
After coming unstuck against the Toffees.
And we can't forget transfer deadline day.
We'll be rounding up some of the biggest deals done in January
Whilst deadline day itself didn't quite live up to expectations,
come on, admit it, Pep signing for City was by far the biggest news
There was still plenty of drama for teams up and down the country
trying to tie up those last-minute deals.
And one person who knows all about the pressure of transfer
deadline day is the chairman of the football
club, as I found out when we got exclusive behind-the-scenes access
Perhaps the most anticipated day in the football league calendar.
For many of the world's biggest clubs,
it's the chance to dust off the fax machine,
crack open the cheque-book and ready the chopper
But what you do if you don't have the transfer
Well, I've headed to National League leaders Forest Green Rovers to
Dale Vince, chairman of Forest Green Rovers,
He has a list of people that he's interested in.
I don't rate my opinion in football above
If he says, "I like this player", he describes him to me,
I think that sounds good, let's see if we can get him.
If we're being asked silly money, that will
If we can do a reasonable deal, then we will keep
When you have agreed with the club, you have to agree to terms
When I got involved in Forest Green about five years ago,
It was quite difficult to be top of the league and to be
heading for promotion at some point, that's a big deal for a player.
That's just not in the deal, you know?
Last night, I was on the e-mail to the chairman of another club
about a player we are hoping to do a deal for today.
We've been on the e-mail on and off today,
It sounds like I'm leaving you on a bit of a cliffhanger here,
Dale. Can't wait to see if you're actually
going to sign a player. So I will leave you
to do the business I've grown up loving football,
so transfer deadline day has always I know the chairman
is hopeful for signing Potentially, it could go
all the way to the wire. I've prepped to have
a long one tonight. Hopefully, we can
get something done. You only have to look back
to the last transfer window, when David de
Gea didn't get his transfer pushed through,
because things went Fax machines.
Is this it? Is this what players actually sign?
This is it. It's not too tough with
what you're putting in. It can come back from the FA due
to just sometimes not This is the moment I've
always dreamed of - signing my first professional
contract. Your basic wage.
Basic wage. Bring it on.
OK, so we will go with... How many zeros?
So we will go with 10p there. 10p?
Yeah, 10p a week. Right, it's 5:30pm
on transfer deadline day. We're going to chairman Dale Vince's
office to see if he's got his man. The player has gone for a medical.
Right. So we've spoken to the
player and he's keen. They're just trying
to agree personal terms. I've got a feeling it's
going to go down to the wire. I think it will go.
I think it will happen. It's all part of that
last-minute drama. And, later that evening,
they did get their man. Former Arsenal youngster
Anthony Geoffrey signed for Forest Green Rovers just 20
minutes before the deadline Although, I know, I know,
they got the big signings out When I put pen to paper
for Forest Green Rovers! Some tough negotiations,
but I got my 10p. Another club busy in the transfer
window this time round England's Jonjo Shelvey
and Andros Townsend, Henri Saivet from Bordeaux,
and Roma striker Seydou Doumbia, on loan
until the end of the season. The St James's faithful will be
hoping the new boys make an impact, as it's not been the best
season for the Magpies. One player that has been a shining
light throughout is He has got an impressive nine goals
already. We found out how he is enjoying life.
Great cross comes in. What a goal! Chipped the ball. Georginio
Wijnaldum! He will claim his fourth for Newcastle. Is it true that when
you are younger, your ambition was to become a gymnast? I wanted to
become one, but I liked the athletics. I always knew that I
wanted to be a professional football player. And that's 3-0. Georginio
Wijnaldum. When you are younger, watch Premier League team did you
support? I supported Manchester United. I like Arsenal as well
because a cousin of mine, he was a really big fan. They played good
football. When you are 16, you became the youngest player to play
for a club. But the impressive start. You know, I am waiting so
long for this moment. So I am going to show them what I can do. That's
why I enjoyed it and playing the game. It was one of the biggest
moment in my career. Great play. What a hit. Any manager would be
delighted with that. I see they like to me. And appreciate what I do.
They give me more confidence, but also a good feeling that I want to
play for this club. I like to play for fans. I look forward to scoring
an away goal now. I think I need a battle so. Have you been winding up
the strikers? That you have more goals than them? I would never wind
him up. Because he is a good player. I get a lot of my goals because of
him. -- I think I need an away goal. What a great addition to the Premier
League. Looking ahead to this we can's fixtures. Stoke will be hoping
to bounce back from midweek disappointment when they take on
Everton. Sunday is also a huge day, not only is it my birthday, but
Chelsea host Manchester United. They finally managed goals in the first
half on Tuesday. They read 11 games without scoring any at Old Trafford.
And a huge game at the top. Leicester goes to Manchester City.
This is about the men up top. Here we've got two of the games most
lethal finish. Jamie Vardy is the top, with 18 goals. The only thing
that really separates those two is the chances they created. Body is
not just content and scoring goals. He is making them as well. This is
too close for me, so I'm going to go for a score draw. -- Badi. I want to
know what you think. I've been asking for your predictions. These
are some of them. Distilled from Manchester agree? My kick about
projection is man city three and Leicester one. It seems he does.
Another prediction going Manchester City's way. Nice skills at the end.
Dan at the bottom of the table, Newcastle take on West Bromwich. I
predict 83- -- I predict a 3-0 victory. This is what you think.
Thanks for those predictions. Every week we are going to be asking you
to predict the scores. To get involved, head to the page on the
CBBC website. Not that it's a big deal, but can I just add that I was
finally correct with my results last week. I predicted that Arsenal would
beat Burnley and Everton would win at Carlisle.
What you mean I got this call wrong? In the Arsenal and Burnley game.
Maybe I said the MK Dons would get a replay against Chelsea. OK, so maybe
my prediction still need a bit of work. Seve you can do better by
getting involved. To find out the next lot of games they want used to
predict, find online. -- think you can do better? Send us a video. Make
sure you get permission. You could see your face on kick about next
week. Other fans have done just that. -- Kickabout. First up, Joe
and George have attempted to recreate a goal from last week. Nice
work. Freddie from Bristol shows us why he prays for Bristol city
academy with these skills. Top stuff. -- plays for. Keep those
clips coming. Whether it is showing off your skills, predicting scores
