i have said all along i can guarantee 100% Torres has already agreed terms with Chelsea. He is just not sure what to do yet. All will be revealed next week. I also really hope he stays. Macca

Steven pienaar looks like hes signing a new four year deal at everton according to the news of the world and they seem to be right as tottenham have withdrawn interest and arsenal seem to be very quiet on the issue also everton lead the chase for man citys nedum onuaha and steven ireland and rumour has it that landon donovan will be evertons biggest transfer of the summer although ireland would also be a big signing for everton so if both happen then its likely someone else will move on however players youd expect to be leaving all seem to have reclaimed places yakubu has had to offers for him from west ham which have both been turned down and james vaughan played in the 10 win over sydney

Just off the phone to a very knowledgeable chap with Rangers interests at heart.

Either Healy and / or Nugent will be unveiled next week as will James McArthur. SWS (Sir Walter Smith) has instructed the money men that James McArthur is his top priority. Conway is more a priority than Goodwillie and Rangers will test Dundee Utd's mettle with a 3 million combined bid for both and possibly Andy Webster thrown in as a makeweight. Stephen Thompson will accept this and as Rangers have never really experienced a decent Andy Webster, he will be no real loss. John Fleck will go as will Kevin Thomson. Fleck to Blackpool, Thomson to Boro. This is not really a problem as McArthur is a more intelligent player than both these guys put together. Chris Brunt may also come infrom west Brom and Allan McGregor may yet move for around 2 million which would elevate Alexander to number 1 and Johnny Tuffey coming in as his no 2. Also heard that a shock move for Riordain is on the cards. He is a very good finisher and will score as many if not more goals than Kris Boyd. I personally see a couple of wingers, a striker, couple of midfielders and centre half as being essential if we are to make it three in a row. 6 players, that's all that is requred, McArthur, Conway, Goodwillie and Riordain being 4. WATP 3 in a row, here we go.

Rangers Team next year Alexander, Whittaker, Papac, Bougherra, Weir, McArthur, Davis, Conway, Brunt, Lafferty, Miller. Subs Goodwillie, Riordain, Fleck, Tuffey, Wilson, Goncalves



fleck sold to blackpool yet hes in your subs , you never quite thought this through . yous couldnt afford brunts wages riordan h8s yous and dnt care if yous get mccartur hes not that good .

Ollie has made enquires about David Healy.
All dependant on his wage demands though.

Also a rumour doing the rounds that Paul Rachubka has been approached by Hartlepool.

I'm a man u fan and i read all these fantesy rumours who man u are going to sign, can i just say man u will not sign anymore players, with hernandez and smalling already signed that will be it on one else, i wish there was but it ain't happening, when every one was saying there was no money i didn't beleive them but now i know this is true, we can all dream but with other clubs around us signing good players i think we might finish in 5th, the squad NEEDS a rebuild and quickly.. thanks for reading my opinions

 

11 Jul 2010 18:48:18
Just seen Serena Williams at Parkhead, or could it have been Emile Heskey, either way Celtic could be about to make a signing

Liverpool news and before you get hyped up you havent signed Milner or Young and you never will but it is regarding the midfield role not if but when mascherano leaves to join Inter.

Former Wigan player Paul Scharner is looking to join Liverpool on a free transfer after his contract expired at Wigan. Valentin Hobel, the Austria international's agent, expects his client to be charged with filling the void in defensive midfield left by Javier Mascherano's impending departure if negotiations are successful at Liverpool.

Hobel later went on to say that " Roy Hodgson and Paul Scharner this is a special relationship, Hodgson thinks that Paul's strengths in midfield are better than his attributes in central defence."

So there you have it, sorry to all the deluded fans thinking there getting the likes of Van Der Vaart and Joe Cole. If you don't believe go on SSN and check for yourself as its been on the site and also the channel today. Editor do you think Scharner would be a good addition to the club ??

PsX Con {editor's note – better than Joe Cole anyway! I actually like Scharner as a player and I have heard good things about his attitude too, I think it could work out well.}

Editor Does the rumor of Scott McDonald to Rangers have any truth? I'd take him, but I can't see Rangers signing him or Middlesbrough wanting to offload him

Are Rangers at all interested or is it just pure myth> {editor's note – in my personal opinion it is just talk and I doubt very much it will happen.}

In response to
Joe cole has gone to 4/11 to join liverpool, and spurs are 13/8.now im a big fan of horse racing and a horse that's 4/11 ON very very very rarley loses.odds are odds and he's not 4/11 on for no reason.

and spurs fans.if you are 100% certain, then go and put your months wages on it.13/8 is a good price for a 'DEAD CERT' ha

Now the old adage of, 'the only things in life that are certain are death and taxes, ' seems relevant here.

firstly as the self confessed , 'big fan of horse racing', you should know that in the uk only 34 percent of races are won by the favourite.. meaning in this scenario that out of 100 attempts joe cole would not sign 66 times! Now this is really just to play devils advocate as you acknowledge the 'Dead Cert' spurs fans and yet by proxy you intimate that your own opinion is a 'DEAD CERT'.
hypocrisy has a new faceit is thee!

That said i am a huge LFC fan and hope this is true as joe would be a great addition to our squad, though i believe his relationship with Harry is too appealing to turn down, so fingers crossed they have a lovers tiff.

As for the other rumours that are placed on here i wish ryan babel tried as hard on the pitch as you guys do to get one right.

Sell Babel, masher, degen, el zhar, spearing, as well as the usual cull of fringe players, creating at least 40 mil(at low end estimates) and things start to get interesting.

play the typical back four of agger carragher johnson, and purchase a left back..figueroa would be acceptable.

then the controversy.play stevie and lucas in centre with aquaman just in front, or kuyt, and by a speedy winger for the right or milner, and hopefully JC on the left.

torres up front of course!

sod off babel and keep trying guys!

I keep hearing word of Scott Dann to Liverpool, I know brum paid about £5 million for him and would want to see a nice profit on that but I personally think he would be great as a red. Had a good first season in the premiership and formed a solid pairing with Roger Johnson, young, athletic, British.

I think this is one rumour to keep an eye on over the coming weeks.

 

11 Jul 2010 18:39:46
Arsenal are about to reject a £45 million bid for Fabregas and announce the signing of Joe Cole. Either Rosicky or Eduardo will be on his way out to make room for Cole's salary. My prediction is Eduardo to Aston Villa

 

11 Jul 2010 18:40:03
Who cares where joe cole goes? the guy is far too over rated.

There will be only three signings coming in to the Emirates this summer; Goalkeeper Schwarzer (whilst Fabianski and Szcescezny grow into the role), Melo to add steel in midfield and to partner Song in a 4231 formation, more defensively robust and lastly, Huntelaar to replace the outgoing Eduardo. In the January window, Hazard may be bought or Nuri Sahin from (a long time Wenger target). Nasri and Ramsey will share the Cesc role.

newcastle are a NEWLY PROMOTED club u will have to spend within ur means so 9mill or so and hope theres at least 3 worst teams. that's what happens when you get promoted.

im a wolves fan and im happy with us getting our business pretty much wrapped up by now, but i see blackpool west brom and a couple of other teams struggling to make signings.
ED can you explain y this is
from what iv heard blackpool will make young fresh hungry players their targets, welbeck marchada wilshire vela something like that on loan, where as west brom are trying established european talent and are struggling to get any interest from players.

These WILL happen in the next week
mancienne to wolves 3.3mill
ledley to stoke 1.9 to 2.4 compo
gosling to sunderland
barrerra to west ham work permit
joe cole will decide either liverpool or spurs

To ETX how do you know this chelsea news by the way i hope its true !

sorry but i can't say i will get fired but trust me it will happen

 

11 Jul 2010 16:42:30
As Leeds fan I just wanted to clear a couple of things up! Firstly not all Leeds fans think promotion is a given this season infact most of us know how hard it will be and to be honest i think a season of consolidation will do us the world of good.

Secondly there is no way that Becchio will be leaving the guy is a legend and loves the club and the city.

Also it makes me laugh how many other fans feel the need to comment on us, i.e 'not a big club!' 'no money to spend' etc. Really guys no Leeds fans give a what is said about us we know who we are, how big we are, and most importantly how famous we are!

Grayson will be bringing in three more players they are:

Gary Hooper 1.75m Scthorpe
Darrel Russel free Norwich
Andy O'Brian £400k Bolton

I have heard from a very reliable source that Liverpool have won the race for Joe Cole's signature.

 

11 Jul 2010 16:31:48
Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has made Ashley Young his number 1 target and is willing to offer Aston Villa £11m and Ryan Babel to land his man could be a good deal for both sides with Ryan Babel a pretty good replacement and £10m to buy Robbie Keane probably.

 

11 Jul 2010 16:32:28
Whats ur Source? Viduka is retired by the way

EM S

MOT

Mark Viduka hasnt officially retired from domestic football only international, he rejected a offer from Melbourne Heart and if gets and interesting offer he will play on. There are rumours in Australia that Leeds are interested, it might be a bit risky due to his age and having not played for a year but could be a solid 2nd striker or bench player and wouldn't have very big wages.

Arsenal to make 2 more signings: 1 will be a cheap, experienced keeper, and the second will be a centreback who could also cover other positions. maybe a couple more youngsters, that is all.

Notts County
notts county have paid of all there debt on will know attempt to put a team together that will get promoted again to the championship from league 2 to 1 and to the championship they will bring in players on loan mostly free agents and maybe 24 signings eriksson and co are out of the picture completely and good redens onwards and upwards now for notts county
Players in the mix:
Carey and cillian sheridan on loan from celtic
Phil Jones andjohn bostock on loans from birmingham and spurs
sam hewson free agent
Stuart taylor free agent
febian brandy free agent {editor's note – isn't Phil Jones a Blackburn player? Or is there another one? Only the Rovers one is highly unlikely to go out on loan to League 2 when he is easily good enough for the Championship at least.}

"Look at the morning papers people. Robben claims Wesley S. on verge of joing United, his family are also pushing him for the move."

Not sure what paper you have read, but according to sky sports/BBC sports/ Telegraph and Mail Alex Ferguson denied making any bids for Wesley or Ozil.

Roy

That is correct Saf has denied making any 'BIDS' for players. saf uses these words very carefully all the time.

Truth will be that Enquiries will have been made to all POSSIBLE targets to at least let the teams acknowledge Utds interest. Rarely when dealing with big name signings do Utd put in Bids its an offer of a value they deem correct for the player with a little scope for change. If its accepted then it will proceed if not usually the target changes ( look at Robben, Ronaldinho deals when another club increasd the offer and Utd refused and pulled out).

Thats why Saf said he is happy with his squad but stopped short of saying nothing will happen.

The biggest problem is that bth of his top targets in mid and att are at Inter and made even worse by the fact Rafa has just took over and we all know how much they are the best of friends. Looks as tho those deals will be dead in the water and the secondary targets will be looked at in more detail.

Goes to show what ive always said, That Sneijder who went for 15m should have been involved in the Ronaldo deal last year without doubt!! We missed out big style there.

Can I just point out, that Ince has retired to start a Goalkeeper training camp back home in Trinadad, so you can dream about signing Incy, but he has retired. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

I never once stated i wanted McDonald back of about his record at celtic. In fact i could not care less about him. One thing i will say as a celtic fan i do not slag off any ex/current squad members regardless of abilty. I posted information that was correct which i had found out from within celtic park. This info has come from someone who is linked to board members( no names will be mentioned). I don't doubt the info you got from Gordon Waddell although what i will say is that every journalist has specific and lots of players they go to for stories/exclusives and over the years they have built up relationships. They again have poor relations with players and sometimes this with hearsay among other journalists (whom have went to specific players) if you get me?, can sometimes be miss interprated. The other thing i will say is that while McDonald had left for middlesborough 2 "exclusive" stories within the walls of celtic park were leaked. My Info regarding the Kitman (J.C) is true. Will be interesting to see how many more stories are leaked in the new season ahead. The other thing with the journo's is they have a job to do however these are the people who ultimately sour relations with players as Gordon Waddell and many more have proved so recently.
Hail Hail
ordo

well usual can't mention my source.why would i make up gordon waddell.jesus could come up with something beta than tht.like the kitman in celtic through an unnamed board member.as for ur i don't slag off ex players get a grip.am at every home and away giame prolly like u pal.if a want taeslag off players etc i'll do it no bother because am the one payin the money and traveln tae c them win.dont claim to have sources etc wen u clearly dont.kenny 88

 

11 Jul 2010 16:14:27
To those discussing the Celtic 'leak', you are both completely wrong. It was infact Mark Brown who still had string friendships at Rangers and was still in touch with Kenny McDowell who joined Rangers coaching staff.

Hense the fact, Mark Brown was punted.

Players rumours: heard from lennoxtown that the Northern Irish boy Boyce is an outstanding prospect.

Other contenders:

Bamba
Wallace
McFadden

In reply to Buying an Arsenal shirt via Arsenal.com and looked at the names that can be added. After V.Persie 11, it states in brackets (Squad number pending). Read into that what you will.Pretty sure he's not on his way, however could someone else be coming in and claiming the 11 shirt?? Maybe Van persie just wants the 10 (Bergkamp) shirt!

That would be because RVP is wanting the #10 shirt left by William Gallas, I wouldn't read to much into it, he simply wants to change numbers. :)

It'd help if you stipulated which paper this was in as clearly it isn't in all of them.

"Daily Mail" mate.on the internet aswell"

Apologies, perhaps i'm a little slow/short sighted but the only Daily Mail story i can see regarding Sneijder is the one where SAF refutes ever having bid for him. The Daily Star however is running a story (and i use the term loosely) that his family is pushing him for a move and he wants to join Utd. Any chance of a link to the whereabouts of the article on the Mail online?

Richard Stearman is to return to Leicester on a season long loan. As he feels leaving Wolves for the season can only be a postive thing if he goes to a club he knows very well.

Joe Cole now 1/4 to join Liverpool, maybe he has talked his missus round and he is coming after all. Maybe he has reminded her that his 80k a week wages pays the bills

"er you will find very soon he has already signed for spurs!! this has come from paul smith of spurs odyssey who has informed us before of the signings of bentley, pava, defoe and crouch!! when he speaks the facts come out and the guy is, regarding spurs always 100% spot on"

I got told Friday night by Carragher's cousin that Cole wants to come to Anfield but his missus Carly Zucker doesn't want to leave London, Tottenham may well end up signing him but what i can't understand is this..apparently Spurs don't pay top wages, i thought their highest earner was King, Keane, Modric on £60k a week. If this is the case, then how will they sign Cole because he wants at least £80k a week, so will Tottenham upset their wage structure for a player who turns 29 this coming season?

The players in question are Torres and Iniesta, City have also enquired about Xavi as am alternative, And the cherry on the top is that City have struck a gentleman's agreement with Barcelona to have first refusal on Lionel Messi should he (a) Become available or (b) have an offer accepted, this is frightening news, so expect to see news of this information in the next 1 1/2 to 2 weeks."

Was it at this point that you woke up? Silly man city fans need to get it into their skull that Torres will never, ever, sign for city.

Joe Cole will not sign for Liverpool as he doesn't want to leave his family in London, but he is open to a move to Spain as long as his wage demands are met.
I personally think he should move to Italy, he's passed his best in England.

Ed, any news on Francisco Regges, Arda Turan to Liverpool?

Francisco Regges is just like a youthful Gilberto Silva but with better passing ability and pairing him with Aquilani would add stability to the CM positions.

Also Turan to come in and play LW with Gerrard CAM and Maxi RW. Hopefully we can see DAvid Amoo in the squad this year..fearless, bags of pace, English and talented!

Any news on a lb? im guessing Figueroa is the most likely to come in!

One rumour which I hope does come true is the acquisitions of Inter's Rene Krhin whereby Roy is using this connections to try and get a deal..he will be one of the best CMs in a few years..any info ed? {editor's note – there is a lot of paper talk, but everything I am told is saying different. The only moves are general inquiries in the positions that Roy has been told are weak links, but he is not making any final decisions yet, just getting things in place ready.}

Just off the phone to a very knowledgeable chap with Rangers interests at heart.

Either Healy and / or Nugent will be unveiled next week as will James McArthur. SWS (Sir Walter Smith) has instructed the money men that James McArthur is his top priority. Conway is more a priority than Goodwillie and Rangers will test Dundee Utd's mettle with a 3 million combined bid for both and possibly Andy Webster thrown in as a makeweight. Stephen Thompson will accept this and as Rangers have never really experienced a decent Andy Webster, he will be no real loss. John Fleck will go as will Kevin Thomson. Fleck to Blackpool, Thomson to Boro. This is not really a problem as McArthur is a more intelligent player than both these guys put together. Chris Brunt may also come infrom west Brom and Allan McGregor may yet move for around 2 million which would elevate Alexander to number 1 and Johnny Tuffey coming in as his no 2. Also heard that a shock move for Riordain is on the cards. He is a very good finisher and will score as many if not more goals than Kris Boyd. I personally see a couple of wingers, a striker, couple of midfielders and centre half as being essential if we are to make it three in a row. 6 players, that's all that is requred, McArthur, Conway, Goodwillie and Riordain being 4. WATP 3 in a row, here we go.

Rangers Team next year Alexander, Whittaker, Papac, Bougherra, Weir, McArthur, Davis, Conway, Brunt, Lafferty, Miller. Subs Goodwillie, Riordain, Fleck, Tuffey, Wilson, Goncalves

ED hello i know you probably get alot of this but i would rather ask you rather than go off what other people say because you are genuine. first of all when do you think the takeover will happen who do you think we will buy and sell and what the rumors on joe cole being liverpool bound. thanks alot {editor's note – I honestly haven't got a clue when the takeover is going to happen, everything is done behind locked doors and in the strictest confidence. Anyone claiming to have knowledge of what is happening is a liar or deluded I am afraid, the only people involved in the process right now are not going to open their mouths about it just yet. There won't be much movement in or out this summer, Mash will be gone and a few of the squad players, but Roy Hodgson is giving the players a chance to impress him in pre–season before making a final decision. Same with the ins, he is just looking for left sided players really, and probably only two, then it will depend on who is to go. As for Cole, there was a contract offered that is all I know but I really hope we don't get him as I didn't rate him before he got his knees ruined.}

I doubt any forwards will go out on loan while Torres is away anyway, more likely to wait until after his holiday to send anyone out on loan.}

Big news coming from Leeds next week:
A fee has finally been agreed for Gary Hooper (£1.6m + clauses for anyone interested) and a contract offer (Grayson held talks with Bates before leaving for tour) has been accepted. Deal announced Tuesday, not sure why it's not announced on Monday but it's not. He won't fly out to join the rest of the squad on their tour though.
Deals that got away:
Robert Koren Grayson wanted him, wages too high for Bates.
George Boyd Again Grayson wanted him, Bates said he wasn't Champ standard and refused to allow the move. He's now signed a new contract with Peterborough.
Mark Viduka Was interested, Grayson was happy, but Bates said if he was signing Hooper there's no need to waste wages on him.
James McCarthur Not sure what happened, everything seemed to be OK but negotiations cancelled.
Jimmy Bullard Trying to be convinced but he's unhappy working with Bates as chairman and looks set to sign for Celtic.

Koren won't be signed due to wages(which are about £20k a week), but you think you might have got Bullard(who's on £45k a week), are you employed by Remploy ?

I have a bit of a problem with your player valuations for your Chelsea ins.
you listed sergio ramos as a £20 m signing. That is absurd! Madrid bought ramos off of sevilla for 27 m about 5 years ago. Since then he has established himself as one of the best right backs in the world (in my opinion the best). And he has had a great world cup and is about to play in the final which will drive up his price further. The president of Madrid has also said in the past that ramos is a future captain of the club.

Therefore I think it unlikely that chevski could pry him away for anything less than £50m.

LFC NEWS

Gerrard to stay im 99.9% sure of this
Torres is not so sure on his future the fee (should he leave) is around 60mil not the 100/30/50/70 m reported
his destination?
not barcelona, there in huge debt and must sell before they buy this means a deal is unlikely

not manchester city torres was approached by city last summer but wasnt and still isn't impressed with the set up there

chelsea?? the most likely but Torres has stated he would not play for a premeir league team but liverpool

So his destination is very cloudy

Insua is off to Fiorentina for around 4.5 m 5 m
Mascherano as reported is pushing for a move to Inter Milan but very little or no money will be involved. Benitez still loves and respects the club/players and fans so will exchange players
Hodgson may get a choice the players will probably be Esteban Cambiasso, Sulley Muntari, Thiago Motta and Rene Khrin

Hodgson wants 5mil, Cambiasso and Khrin on loan.
Benitez is set to agree.
Joe Cole deal is 50/50 Arsenal are out the running

Liverpool to then look at
LB
ST
CB
LM
Targets: Maynor Figueroa, Fabio Aurelio (return), Taye Taiwo, Klass Jan Huntelaar, Asamoah Gyan, Luis Suarez (unlikely), Arne Friedrich, Bryan Ruiz, Paul Scharner

British Targets (for Quota)
Nedum Onuoha, Micah Richards, Shaun WrightPhillips, Scott Dann, Robbie Keane, David Bentley, Ashley Young, Jack Wilshere, Gary Cahill, James McCarthy, Kevin Doyle

Budget if all outgoings happen that ive said will be 25mil

Dont laugh or react saying these are cp these are just what ive heard and sensible suggestions

Tottenham will never sell Crouch to Liverpool for 6m, if you look at the recent history for Tottenham transfers you will notice that David Levy holds out for every last penny. So in the case of Crouch you will probably be looking at a fee of around 1012 mil. Also as much as I dread saying it looks as if Joe Cole will be signing for Tottenham (why we need another left sided midfielder I don't know, would rather we continued to use Bale in the attacking role down the wing, and with Modric and Kranjear in the squad looks like opportunities will be limited). Just for the record if your manager I would consider selling Gerrard and Torres as long as the money generated is utilised for squad development and not debt servicing, should raise in the region of 70 million.

To the person who said this yess we all know you spurs fans don't want joe cole and us liverpool fans do rednkapp just likes spending 90, 00k a week just to show he can spend also crouch is just a rumour we have sold him once we don't need him again and also why would he sell gerrard and torresyou stupid 2 best players at club you bild a team around these 2 not sell them and even if we did we would get 100 million for the 2 not 70 million torres is valud at 60 million and gerrard at 40 million so get your FACTS right! also LFC are in talks with Joe Cole, Maynor Figeruoa, Bryan Ruiz, Brende Hangeland, Sergio Kun Aguero and selling Lucas Pazzini Levia and Javier Mascherano to Inter Miland Albeto Reira and Emilano Insua off to Juventus/Fiorentina.

A rumour about Luke Varney going to Notts County any news regarding this?

He has been offered a deal with Notts, and they are hopeful of landing him.

"Look at the morning papers people. Robben claims Wesley S. on verge of joing United, his family are also pushing him for the move."

Not sure what paper you have read, but according to sky sports/BBC sports/ Telegraph and Mail Alex Ferguson denied making any bids for Wesley or Ozil.

Ed, any truth in rumours of K.P boateng, wilson and piquionne all signing for west ham, along with sturridge on loan if chelsea sign another big name striker like torres {editor's note – I don't know about the Sturridge one, but I do know West Ham are interested in Boateng and Piquionne. Don't know anything about Wilson though, you are talking about the one who is currently at Portsmouth though right?}

In the know u don't know much mate.i was at the q&a with neil lennon and peter lawell last night in grangemouth and lennon told everyone an unhappy player was leaking stories when not being picked but itz been taken care of now.also lawell said don't believe everything u read in the papers the ledley deal will be positive both their exact wordz.dont act like ur in the know when ur clearly not.

Can you confirm that Neil Lennon, who has been trying to broker a move for McDonald in the last 5 weeks as sanctioned by Peter Lawell actually mentioned that McDonald (by name) was the player leaking the stories/ formations? during the meeting in grangemouth. I believe all players are capable through these idiots in the press of spilling information but In the Know is correct about the kitman john clark as my brothers best mate works in security at parkhead. McDonald who i hope DOES NOT return was pushed out the door by lawell due to the arrival of Robbie keane. The best part of it is that no one will see keane at parkhead this year as LAWELL does not want him back. He also does not want McGeady and has been trying his very best to broker a move. The most frustrating thing is Lawell has more faces than the joker and the amount of lies he has stated recently has become laughable. He offered the manager to 4 other people before lennon was confirmed. Will be interesting to see how the relationship with Lennon and Lawell is over the course of the year.

CHRIS!

Let me start by saying Clichy is in the top 5 left backs in the world!!

Secondly. Koscielny is right footed!!

Thirdly Gibbs has yet to recover mach fitness from his injury.

Armand Traore is a shoein to be either loaned out or sold.

Wenger will hardly want to replace nearly the whole defence in one summer.

Your Source: Goal.com (Nuff said)

Also Melo put any chance of a significant offer for him in serious jeopardy with his abysmal world cup!! Now i'm not sayin we won't sign him but the only way i see Wenger getting him is either a) Juve give us the Vieira money and Melo for Sagna NOT Clichy!!

or b) Wenger is able to get him for under 12m in a bargain deal.

For some reason he likes Melo, that is true (Why is anyone's guess).

The only reason i decided to pick apart what you said is because you say it as if it were a FACT! when it's far from it.

As far as Ozil goes HAHAAHAHA! Too many bigger teams linked. I mean we could afford him easily as his contract is up in a season but the problem is we can't match wages with clubs like City Real or Barca etc. or get into a bidding war. FACT!

Mertesacker is possible I'll give you that one but he'll cost 14m+ IMO.

I'm a Arsenal fanatic but due to the club still being in debt i can see Arsene remaining tight for a couple more seasons.He will be forced to buy if a) We finish outside top four this coming season. (possible watch out for Everton) or b) When Fabregas leaves (could be this season if Barca get shot of Ibra)


Now to complete my thoughts i'll give my Realistic thoughts.

In (If Fabregas stays)

Chamakh (Free, Done)
Koscielny (8m10m, Done)
Cahill or Jagielka (15m each)
Green (6m8m) (Personally i will cry if this happens)
De Jong (Wildcard, 12m) (Provided he wants to stay in England)

In (If Fabregas leaves, roughly 50m)

Chamakh (Free, Done)
Koscielny (8m10m, Done)
Cahill or Jagielka (15m each)
Lloris (15m)
Hazard (16m20m)
Gourcuff or Montolivo (18m each)
Melo (15m) or De Jong (12m)

Possible departures :

Gallas
Silvestre
Campbell
Traore
Eduardo
Vela (loan)
Wilshere (loan)
Amunia
Fabianski
Fabregas

That's my REALISTIC take on what will go down at Arsenal this window (or something quite similiar)

Editor, any Thoughts? {editor's note – I am sorry you lost me when you said Clichy is in the top five left backs in the world. I was too busy shaking my head in amazement at that to follow the rest of your post. He is fast and decent going forward but he is as bad defensively as Glenn Johnson (and that is saying something!), I would say Gibbs was a better left back myself.}

Here is a rumour which i heard which has some substance Chelsea will not be signing anyone big this summer or for the foreseable future because they don't have the money. Now before u go saying that mr abramovich is a billionaire (which he is, he has lots of money)he is not stupid he has spent a lot of money on players who have floped schevchenko, bosingwa, crespo and many others.
Now it seems pretty obvious to me that chelsea are offloading a lot of players to ease up on the old wage bill they decided to release joe cole, michael ballack, julliano beletti and and they are looking to sell deco. all who have contracts worth £100,000 or close to that amount.
so instead of replacing these out going players with world class quality they have been linked with say torres, sneijder or even oezil who for as been a star player for germany he is going for the cheaper option of yossi benayoun.now you can say what you want but yossi benayoun is not in the same leaague has those 3 players, but he does have a cheaper contract.seriously why would u release joe cole to replace him for a player that was a benchwarmer at liverpool.
im not saying that chelsea are not bringing any players in but what i am saying is that torres £50m chelsea have never bought a player for £50m and they not doing it in the transfer window either.For a team that have spent so much in the past are easing up a little in future.there main goal this season is to reduce the wage bill and bring in quality players for a cheaper price hence the signing of yossi benayoun like i said this is only a rumour but im pretty sure that in time it will be fact.

Heard a couple of LFC things but don't know how accurate they are, but here goes

The only person LFC are looking at right now is Arda Turan, we were very interested in Ruiz but some big clubs have also shown an interest and this has turned his head and put his price up, we are no longer looking seriously at him. There are no other targets, until a final budget is clarified. However expect the squad to be gutted with a large amount of bit part players getting sold or loaned out. The joe cole thing is still a split between three clubs and NO ONE knows who he will choose, hence the increased interest in Turan.

My guesses are the same as already posted, i expect Macherano to go for between 2228m, Riera 6m, Khuyt 8m, Skrtl 8m, Insua 4m, Lucas 6m, Degen 1m, Cavalieri 4m.

Worst case scenario this would give us 59m plus the 15m Roy has been given = 74m.
I wouldn't expect Roy to spend the lot in the summer, i expect him to use some of the promising young kids we have. However i would expect him to buy a defensive midfielder (cambiasso?), centre back cover (Kjaer? or Hangeland) and as mentioned Turan. I also think Pacheco will have a really big impact this season as Stevie (if he stays) drops back into midfield and starts pulling the strings again!

Joe Cole has NOT signed for Spurs (not yet!). Joe Cole's future will be decided in next 10 days according to his agent!! Also he is favourite to join Liverpool as his odds have been slashed to 1/4 on skybet!! bookies are never far from the truth! So expect him to sign for LFC shortly

Skybet are though mate they do it all the time!! They slashed Ribery's odd's on joining Liverpool to something stupid last summer!! Dont believe it!

FAO KENNY 88 REF BELOW INFO

10 Jul 2010 22:09:12
scott mcdonald will not be back at celtic due to the fact that he leaked storys to the papers when playin under mowbray
Beleive me that this is so wrong as the journalist that has written all the celtic "inside stories" did not get his info from scott mcdonald! He has infact got the stories from the kit man john clark who blabs all the dressing room stories to his son who has cashed in with at least 3 tabloids!. Im not at liberty to say how I know this however mcdonald and caldwell were blamed due to the fall out with mowbray over contract (caldwell) and mcdonald who was not a regular starter. It seems whoever has posted this regarding mcdonald has listened to all the gossip as opposed to knowing the facts! The reason why clark remains kitman is due to loyalty from celtic directors but this is begining to wear rather thin due a midseason "exclusive" in which there was unrest between scott brown and tony mowbray which only happened in the presence of only 4 people including clark! To the person who wrote this .it was mcdonald my uncle is friends with Gordon wadell n he told me tht bak las year.pathetic Celtic fans actually want mcdonald bak had one good season could harly score in the championship which to me is a worse league than the spl.living off the epl. Kenny88

I never once stated i wanted McDonald back of about his record at celtic. In fact i could not care less about him. One thing i will say as a celtic fan i do not slag off any ex/current squad members regardless of abilty. I posted information that was correct which i had found out from within celtic park. This info has come from someone who is linked to board members( no names will be mentioned). I don't doubt the info you got from Gordon Waddell although what i will say is that every journalist has specific and lots of players they go to for stories/exclusives and over the years they have built up relationships. They again have poor relations with players and sometimes this with hearsay among other journalists (whom have went to specific players) if you get me?, can sometimes be miss interprated. The other thing i will say is that while McDonald had left for middlesborough 2 "exclusive" stories within the walls of celtic park were leaked. My Info regarding the Kitman (J.C) is true. Will be interesting to see how many more stories are leaked in the new season ahead. The other thing with the journo's is they have a job to do however these are the people who ultimately sour relations with players as Gordon Waddell and many more have proved so recently.

Big news coming from Leeds next week:

A fee has finally been agreed for Gary Hooper (£1.6m + clauses for anyone interested) and a contract offer (Grayson held talks with Bates before leaving for tour) has been accepted. Deal announced Tuesday, not sure why it's not announced on Monday but it's not. He won't fly out to join the rest of the squad on their tour though.

Deals that got away:

Robert Koren Grayson wanted him, wages too high for Bates.

George Boyd Again Grayson wanted him, Bates said he wasn't Champ standard and refused to allow the move. He's now signed a new contract with Peterborough.

Mark Viduka Was interested, Grayson was happy, but Bates said if he was signing Hooper there's no need to waste wages on him.

James McCarthur Not sure what happened, everything seemed to be OK but negotiations cancelled.

Jimmy Bullard Trying to be convinced but he's unhappy working with Bates as chairman and looks set to sign for Celtic.




Whats ur Source? Viduka is retired by the way

His odds are NOT 11/4.. they are 4/11 with skybet.. they was 1/4 earlier this morning so the odds are coming in, I'm a Liverpool fan but can't see him signing, i personally think he will stay in London with Spurs!! But i hope i'm wrong!

Here is the truth about the united sneijder saga: United never id for sneijder. He was never on their radar. SAF confirmed it yesterday. The rumours were created by moratti and rafa who were trying to see whether they could sell sneijder for a good price so that rafa could get his targets. Although these hopes were dashed immediately by sneijder who revealed he did not want to move. Rafa doesn't mind having him in the team but wanted his own signings and had to sell. Although there is truth in united's balotelli bid but SAF will not pay over the odds for him. Also SAF has cooled off interest in ozil. Nobody knows who united will sign apart fro david gill and SAF but there will be a BIG signing in the next week.

united won't sign anyone but sneijder apparently has made a u turn and wants to move to united according to his family

Arsenal are to go ahead with Clichy Melo swap no cash is involved as Juve owe money from Viera deal, , Wenger wants Gibbs tto step up and Kos and Verm are both left footed so can stand in as can Traore, , Also Ozil 20M even if Fabregas stays as he is on last year of contract and would cost much more if he renews contract. Bringing in Merasacker is to have a German and friendly face to make Ozil settle so expect a 30M double offer to Werder. Wenger wants srength in depth. Benzema has made it clear he prefers Arsenal to MUFC and another season on the bench is not good for him so he may think Wenger good get him back to his best as he wants to be in the france squad for the Euros, as well as the wages being left by Gallas, Silvestre, meridia, Senderos and poss Sol
Ozil is happy to get a contact between 60 000 and 80 000 Benzema will be the sticky 1 and would have to half his wages although Real are willing to share them to get him off the books half his wages and the fee watch it

To the editor what is the chances of hooper coming to leeds . and have u heard anythink {editor's note – I haven't got a clue, I have heard nothing about him other than him being wanted by so many team's fans. I am not sure if any team is actually willing to invest the money needed to buy him and the interest does seem to be mostly from the fans rather than the clubs themselves.}

Pratley will sign for Forest next week for 1.5m on 25k a week.

source alan curtis 1st team coach swansea."

You were doing ok until the wage bit. Forest will not pay anyone over 15k a week.


of corse they will nicky shoreys wages are double 15k witch forest are prepared to pay for his services and already have when we was on loan at forest. they proberly won't pay pratley that much but they are prepared to may more for better players. but i don't see it being anygood paying higher wages its will just bring upset to the rest of the players


Doubtful. If a player goes on loan his wages are split between his parent club and the club he's on loan to, usually 50/50. That means forest would of most likely been paying Shorey £15,000. Forest have a salary cap of £15,000. That is why Shorey more than likely won't end up at Forest because they aren't prepared to pay him £30,000 a week and he won't want to take a 50% pay cut. With ragards to Pratley. No where near worth £25,000 per week. As I said the salary cap is £15,000 so it will be no more than that, if he goes to Forest that is.


player wages will have no affect on shorey moving to forest he is waiting for offers from pl clubs as he doesn't feel he wants to make the step down to the championship. also like the other guy said andy cole was on 25k so i don't see were this salery caps is


You might be right about Shorey holding out for a PL club but I think you will find Andy Cole was on £15,000 a week. Check it out for yourself.

www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/leagues/championship/3270305/AndyColetocallitadayasNottinghamForestend15000aweekcontractFootball.html

Mark Arthur has talked about a salary cap introduced by the transfer acquisitions panel at forest so can't see them breaking it for an average midfielder like Pratley. As I said no where near worth £25,000 a week.

Anyone know if Liverpool are still interested in Danny Wilson from Rangers?? Since Benitez left the deal has dissappeared.

Ed a couple of months ago Derby were linked with a young Dutch lad called Michael de Leeuw along with Sheff Utd, Feyenoord and FC Utrecht. It's all gone quiet now just wondered if you knew anything. Also there was a rumour about Luke Varney going to Notts County any news regarding this. Cheers.

Aston Villa transfer news.

James Milner will finally complete his move to Manchester City on Wednesday/Thursday of this week, with Stephen Ireland and Nedum Onuoha moving to Villa Park. Villa will also receive between £10£12m as part of the deal.

Villa also see Emile Heskey depart to Celtic with Aiden McGeady heading the opposite direction. This will also cost Villa around £5m

Marlon Harewood is due to sign for Portsmouth in the next fee days for a minimal fee as Harewood is prepared to reduce his £20,000 a week salary to play regularly.

Steve Sidwell will be returning back to London and will sign for Fulham for £3.5m. Nicky Shorey will also be heading to West Ham for a fee of around £3m

Youn Scotland star Barry Bannon will complete a season long loan to Blackpool where he spent a proportion of last season.

Jan Klass Huntelaar has supposedly been offered to Aston Villa, but it is unlikely that Martin O'Neill is prepared to splash out the required £15m for someone that has played so little in the last couple of seasons, he is expected to sign Robbie Keane from Spurs though at around the same time that James Milner heads up the M6. O'Neill is also hoping to tie up the signing of Keane with that of his current Spurs team mate David Bentley for around £7.5m

Luke Young could well be heading out of the Villa Park revolving door with Stoke City showing an interest, but no firm offer has been made at present only an enquiry into his availability.

Habib Beye looks set for a swift return to Newcastle United with them offering around £1.5m for the utility player who left to go to Villa Park last season.

O'Neill looks set to find cover for the losses of Beye, Young, Shorey and the released Freddie Bouma by signing Crystal Palace full back Nathanial Clyde for around £1.5m

Mustapha Salifou is due to have talks with Derby County about a move (not sure if this is permanent or a loan) and England U19 captain Ciaran Clark is interesting Walsall who would like to take him on a season long loan.

Celtic trying to get inter milan striker OBINNA! on season long loan. hopefully not just another silly rumour.

Big news coming from Leeds next week:

A fee has finally been agreed for Gary Hooper (£1.6m + clauses for anyone interested) and a contract offer (Grayson held talks with Bates before leaving for tour) has been accepted. Deal announced Tuesday, not sure why it's not announced on Monday but it's not. He won't fly out to join the rest of the squad on their tour though.

Deals that got away:

Robert Koren Grayson wanted him, wages too high for Bates.

George Boyd Again Grayson wanted him, Bates said he wasn't Champ standard and refused to allow the move. He's now signed a new contract with Peterborough.

Mark Viduka Was interested, Grayson was happy, but Bates said if he was signing Hooper there's no need to waste wages on him.

James McCarthur Not sure what happened, everything seemed to be OK but negotiations cancelled.

Jimmy Bullard Trying to be convinced but he's unhappy working with Bates as chairman and looks set to sign for Celtic.

I have heard a stunning rumour from a person who is well connected in all walks of football, Apparently Manchester City are in advanced talks with 2 players who will blow your mind,
The players in question are Torres and Iniesta, City have also enquired about Xavi as am alternative, And the cherry on the top is that City have struck a gentleman's agreement with Barcelona to have first refusal on Lionel Messi should he (a) Become available or (b) have an offer accepted, this is frightening news, so expect to see news of this information in the next 1 1/2 to 2 weeks.

Aston Villa transfer RUMOURS today :

Klaas Jan Huntelaar has been offered to Aston Villa for a pirce of £9 Million Cannot see this happening as I can see him ending at a club like Arsenal, Also as a Villa fan I would rather have a proven Premier League striker such as Robbie Keane or Darren Bent.

David Bentley has been linked with a move to Villa to end his spell at Spurs and MON see's as a perfect replacement for Milner if he goes to Man City ( no where else ) I agree with him being the perfect replacement but at the same time he is not in the same class as Milner. If we could get for £6£8 Million that would be a good bit of business

James Milner has expressed his desire to STAY at Villa if a transfer to Man City falls through and also he would sign a new contract worth 85K a week making him Villa's top earner As a Villa fan this is great news but again it being a rumour I am not getting my hopes up, personally I hope he does stay so I can laugh at deluded Liverpool fans faces thing they can't get hime for 10 Mil plus Babel all I can say LOL

again these are only rumours but the do give the impression the future is bright to Villa park. Editor what are you thoughts on the targets ?

PsX Con {editor's note – the future is bright for Villa, so long as Lerner doesn't sell up. He will take good care of the club while he owns it, he is proof that not all Americans are bad for football (or should I say sawker?).}

Robbie Keane will move on from spurs to a bigger club .

Most likely to Martin O Neill and Villa .
Martin is more mentaly stable than the eejit over at White Hart Lane and head and sholders above rednapp when it comes to knowledge of the game.

Barring that he will move up to the biggest club in the UK, Glasgow Celtic.

Liverpool will not be getting joe cole as he has signed for tottenham on a free at 90,000 a week, harry rednapp is looking to confident when asked about the matter and will be announced in the next few days, if you ask me he won't get a game there with kranjar, modric, bentleym lennon etc he needed to go to liverpool where he would definatley get a game under the new boss,

mascherano will go, lucas will go, torres and gerrard will stay, babel will have one last season where he prefers to play up front which may work out, riera will stay but degen insua and possibly skrtel could go

ins figeroa
possibly bellamy
crouch,

Correct me i am wrong but i thought the rumours going around where that Joe Cole was looking for £110,000 a week and a 3 year contract

Joe Cole has NOT signed for Spurs (not yet!). Joe Cole's future will be decided in next 10 days according to his agent!! Also he is favourite to join Liverpool as his odds have been slashed to 1/4 on skybet!! bookies are never far from the truth! So expect him to sign for LFC shortly

Manchester United News: I have on very good authority that Michael Carrick, Nemanja Vidic and Dimitar Berbatov will all be leaving Old Trafford this summer. What price would you put on each of these players Ed ? {editor's note I would guess at £25m+ for Vidic, £15m+ for Berbatov and £10m+ for Carrick.}

Okay let's start with what is your source. The last time I checked all these we rumours posted over various different web site?

Carlton cole was at the britannia stadium last night and should complete a move shortly. Also stoke have had a 7 million bid accepted by wigan for there left back maynor figeroua. Also matthew etherington last night signed a new 4 year deal. The squad is to leave to austria today but kitson and beattie to stay behind so that they can try to find a club bristol city is the likely destination for kitson for around 2 million. But beattie is struggling to find a club due to his wage demands and attitude

I just posted what i was told by a chelsea insider day before yesterday, that chelsea have identified their main target as oezil ahead of aguero, chelsea won't be buying anybody for 30m+.but now ancelotti said he won't be signing any striker, since drogba is there, proving him partially right.so i thought i would share what i was told actually, wich then i thought was rubbish."main target oezil or khedira(amazing as both are diffrnt type of playrs), no players 4 30m+, except torres, for whom we are willing to pay upto 70m, aguero may be, but not for 30m+, pato(abra not convincd).no schweini, kaka."

ed can you enlighten me on why should chelsea sign a marquee mf when a striker is clearly needed with kalou, sinclair leaving, di santo, sturridge, borini loan?are they doing it for the sake of signing marquee, since any marquee st wil cost more than khedira&I am pretty sure we will not get torres even for 70m.how are we gona play 433 then, will chelsea sign a cheap st if torres is not coming.hope we will sign aguero.CHELSEA {editor's note – I don't see why Chelsea need a striker, you have Sturridge, Anelka and Drogba, surely those 3 are enough for the system you play? You only really play one actual striker with 2 wide attackers, places that can be filled with either strikers or midfielders.}

To the complete numpty who wrote this..

"10 Jul 2010 20:26:06
Southampton
Sam Vokes was willing to join leeds on loan last season league 1 team
james beattie will sign because Ricky lambert is joining premier league team blackpool £2.5m
Rory delap is getting on in years and won't join
Other Players That could join:
Kevin philps £1m hes a southampton legend and would get about 25 goals or more in league 1
simeon jackson wouldn't join championship clubs are after him norwich and millwall
Fitz hall £500k ok defender not the worst not the best either though could join on a 6 month loan first
Micheal Tonge £750k wants first team footy will get it at the saints and will be a big team player"

Ricky Lambert is going nowhere. Especially not for £2.5 million. Fact.

Kevin Phillips is anything but a Southampton ledgend thankyou.. infact he had a rather miserable time down here and slagged us to the ground when he left for Villa. So there's another ex player return you can chalk off.

Just because we are still in League One, doesn't mean we can't fend off Championship clubs in the race for players. We signed Lambert, Puncheon, Fonte and Ryan Dickson who all had at least 2 Championship clubs offers on the table, but they chose us. We are not offering silly money for wages either.

Fitz Hall.. yet another ex player you are touting for a move to us. Your talking twaddle mate.

And as for Michael Tonge, with Our Captain Deano playing out of his skin last season, Morgan Scneiderlin (our France U21 startlet), Adam Lallana (who is also going nowhere so don't bother starting rubbish about him) and Jason Puncheon ripping teams apart last season.. I think its safe to say Michael Tonge would be far from guarenteed first team football.

Better luck next time.

 

11 Jul 2010 07:18:02
On regards to this:
I love how everyone is writing Liverpool off after one bad season full of injuries, bad luck and underperforming.Look at the facts, Reina, Johnson, Gerrard, Mascherano, Torres are all top 5 players in the world in their relative positionsKuyt, world cup finalist.Agger, Skrtel, Carragher, Aquilani all had injury problems last year. Still good playersCan Babel/Riera fulfill their potential? Rodriguez, quality, will be better this season.The problem is and always has been the average squad players surrounding these. Hodgson has 15m plus player sales (Mascherano 2530m).await the signings of Jovanovic (done), Joe Cole (free), Scharner (free), Shaun Wright Phillips (6m), Peter Crouch (6m), Ruiz (12m), Ashley Young (20m) and a left back from Dossena/Aurelio/Insua money

Tottenham will never sell Crouch to Liverpool for 6m, if you look at the recent history for Tottenham transfers you will notice that David Levy holds out for every last penny. So in the case of Crouch you will probably be looking at a fee of around 1012 mil. Also as much as I dread saying it looks as if Joe Cole will be signing for Tottenham (why we need another left sided midfielder I don't know, would rather we continued to use Bale in the attacking role down the wing, and with Modric and Kranjear in the squad looks like opportunities will be limited). Just for the record if your manager I would consider selling Gerrard and Torres as long as the money generated is utilised for squad development and not debt servicing, should raise in the region of 70 million.

 

11 Jul 2010 07:27:51
Feel a few things need saying..

seems everyone is trying to work out wher J Cole is going,
lots are putting 2 n 2 together and coming up with 6, Why would j cole be garunteed football @ liverpool ? With gerrard staying, he won, t be garunteed a place in the hole and we have jovanovic as an attacking left midfielder, and a ten mill bid on brian ruiz (another attacking left winger/forward)
so where will we play him ? central midfield(innefectual) right wing (equally innefectual)
More chance of first team football with Harry at spurs who always liked cole and still does. Plus its london so no fuss , movin girlfriend family oh and mo money! seems obvious to me ( oh ok maybe a hint of wishfull thinkin by me. Sick o buyin players who the doctors seee more of than the fans)

you will won, t you !!!
Several of you will jump on the bandwagon today stating torres will hand in a transfer request or liverpool will sell for 100m .. First things first.. 100m is a theoretical number touted to stop any bids comming in for torres its a price to scare off teams only 1 could afford anywhere near that

torrees would always have to puut in a transfer request if he wantes a move whilst under contract if liverpool did not want to sell ( this is not even a story just jibberish to fill a space in a paper )

spurs fans.
Great season.. But the deluded fans need to stop your buying everyone ! Well ya not really you, ve bid for two players and are only trying tto tie up a deal for one j cole from ya bosses mouth boys

bitter who ??
Sure i read t other day someone said only man u man citeh and chavski could afford ozil, scnjieder etc Hink ya forgettiin arsenal lads they havee money to spend and at present are the only team to offer a money bid for ozil oh and sjneider is going no wher .

champions next year ??
Come on!!! liverpool will be pushing for the title next seasoni, d be happy with champions league.. Don, t get me wrong i, d love it but i, m realistic a solid season and champions league will sate me thankyou very much and a bit of stabilitty

Well well well.
We are close now the 15th is just a few days away now and we will have new owners ready to assett strip/ spend lik like paris hilton..hmmmmmm.isee the 15th as credibility day for people on this site and nothing else.

Hollywoodlandplease!!
Two film stars are part of a consortium to buy liverpool fc.??..my god..tinsel town could not keep a secret if its reputation was on the line.this would be the worst kept secret in the history of secrets.. Stop, whats next julia roberts wants to save us case she stayed att the adelphi y once ?

Expect Notts County to make a few signings this week, including Sam Hewson, Ishmel Demontagnac, and they will offer deals to 4 trialists including Krystian Pearce.

Manchester United's Defensive midfield position may be filled by Defour or the impressive Veloso but United may put their trust in Paul Pogba to step up to the mark, with Darren Fletcher to help him out at the back of midfield the 17 year old could be in for a big role in the United team next season. Pogba is a quality player, he is similar to Patrick Viera i most ways and will be a star in the future.

Mesut Ozil is next on United's wish list after the snubbage of Snejder. I am not sure if Balotelli is part of United's plans or whether Fergie is helping Moratti to get top dollar for him. Maybe Fergie wants City to hurry up and buy their strikers so that Fergie can bid for his target (possibly Benzema) without getting into a bidding war with City. Or maybe Fergie genuinely wants the talented striker?

Def mid = Veloso or Defour or Pogba to get his chance,
Att Mid = Ozil or Jovetic,
Striker = Benzema or Balotelli

Ed do you think its time to bring in young Pogba? United could always bring someone in come January if he does not work out? {editor's note Pogba looks up to the job as cover, Fletcher being the main choice, that's how I would see it. Seems a waste to buy someone when the lad is so good, and Scholes is playing there as well most of the time anyway.}

Why do Man Utd fans want to see Benzema at Old Trafford.. I've seen enough of Hernandez at the World Cup to be convinced he could do well for us. He's quick, has two good feet, a great leap for a small lad and has bagged many goals with his head. If anybody has watched him also you will see how many intelligent runs he makes and always manages to keep himself onside. Why waste money on a Benzema, Yes he may do well for us but he's stroppy, and lets remember 12 months ago we were not good enough for him so let him sit on the subs bench at Real as that's all he deserves.. {Right Ed..?} {editor's note – I think you should buy Benzema and loan out Hernandez. Purely because I think Hernandez looks a bit special, I don't want to see him playing for you!}

Some updates on what I wrote yesterday:
"10 Jul 2010 19:22:50
Rumours of Israeli players to the Premierleague:
Dudu Aouate (GK, Mallorca) Birmingham/WBA
Dekel Keinan (CB, Maccabi Haifa) Blackpool
Tal BenHaim Westham
Guy Assulin Arsenal/Chelsea/Spurs
Elyaniv Barda (striker, Genk) Everton/Westham
Ben Sahar Westham"
Dudu Aouate won't be coming to the Premierleague, after he resolved his contract issues with Mallorca, so sorry B'ham & WBA, you will have to look elsewhere for a good GK.
Dekel Keinan WILL sign for Blackpool in the next few days. he is in Blackpool and undergoing a medical.
BenHaim move is very likely.
Assulin is likely.
the other to are unlikely, especialy Barda.

If you seriously think Crouch is coming to Anfield then it's you that has got no idea. Liverpool will almost certainly remian playing a lone striker up fron as this is now the 'preferred way' amongst the top teams. Just because he is an intelligent player does not mean he will compliment Torres. Remember Keane? He's an intelligent player as well probably better than Crouch, and look what happened to him. Crouch may well like Liverpool I'm sure little Mikey Owen does as well but it doesn't mean he wants to come back and spend a season sat on his backside on the subs bench waiting for Torres to get tired or injured.

It is not going to happen

RED LENIN"

Crouch has just spent most of a season sitting on the bench at Spurs. He's well behind the pecking order there for Harry Redknapp. I think he'd welcome a return to Anfield. And at 6 million pounds is a bargain.
Second guessing Roy Hodgson's formation for the coming season is a tad presumptious.

I'm picking Crouch to make a return, Ngog to go out on loan, and Pachecho to come off the bench for more first team football.

OK Reality Check Folks!

I Just spoke to the cleaner of the lady who lives down the road. She knows of nothing that is happening in the football world, although she does think the World Cup is coming to an end as her old man seems to be spending less time down the pub !!

I then went to the car park at the local football stadium. Yes and to my surprise it was almost empty except for one car. Don't know who it belongs to but could this be significant? Somehg
ow I don't thinl Lionel Messi or Kaka or even Steven Gerrard are driving to the Withdean Stadium in their Silver Ka !!

Let's face it as much as we like to think we know what is going on we haven't got a Scooby Doo!! any manager that is worth their salts would not be discussing with Joe Public and possibly jeopardising any potential dealings.

Anyway Ed, Excellent site and glad to see more involvement from you, even if it is slightly biased (or should that say deluded !!)

As soon as I get anymore top secret information I will post again.

A few people are asking about evertons transfer activity , nothing will happen for a couple of weeks , everton are in australia so till they get back i can't see them signing anymore players, alot of people on here are linking there clubs with signing 8 or 10 players, the clubs who do well are the 1s that bring in 2 or 3 players at the most. as an everton fan i hope moyes buys a good forward nothing else but am guessing he might put his hopes in saha, yakubu, vaughen, anichabe and beckford. maybe anichabe will kick start his career this season he had a bad injury last season so hopefully he can start to show his potential
school of science

Spot on SoS, when you've already got a good team you only need a couple new players to kick on although as I just posted The Yak and Yobo may be going (but it's just a rumour).
Tater will sign up, and hope Peanuts does too. And as I've already said, no Donovan in the summer, Jan at the earliest.

Here is the truth about the united sneijder saga: United never id for sneijder. He was never on their radar. SAF confirmed it yesterday. The rumours were created by moratti and rafa who were trying to see whether they could sell sneijder for a good price so that rafa could get his targets. Although these hopes were dashed immediately by sneijder who revealed he did not want to move. Rafa doesn't mind having him in the team but wanted his own signings and had to sell. Although there is truth in united's balotelli bid but SAF will not pay over the odds for him. Also SAF has cooled off interest in ozil. Nobody knows who united will sign apart fro david gill and SAF but there will be a BIG signing in the next week.

I KNOW CROUCH WOULD LOVE TO COME BACK TO ANFIELD BUT PLEASE STOP SAYING THAT ANY STRIKER THAT WILL BE BROUGHT IN WILL NOT I REPEAT WILL NOT SIT ON THE BENCH BECAUSE THAT WAS BENITEZ TACTIC AND THINKING, WE ALL DON'T KNOW HOW HODGSON WILL PLAY BUT I KNOW HE WILL NOT PLAY WITH JUST ONE STRIKER IF HE WANTS TO TAKE US BACK TO EUROPEAN FOOTBALL (TOP 4) SO I THINK U R THE ONLY ONE THAT THINK THAT WAY.

I was posting another post and i hit SUBMIT by accident so i will continue

MAN U IN
OZIL/SNEIJDER
sneijder been great but ozil been good and is younger would be cheaper and could fill in the left wing role sneijder has said he wants to stay and i doubt sir alex will bid 4mil or so for 1 player ozil is the 1 i would like o see and could join for 1725mil we tryed to buy him a few years ago aswell

SMALLING
done deal

HERNANDEZ
done deal and he impressed me in the world cup

DODO
he was signed last season but it joining this season don't no why he didn't last season any no?

NINIS
i think he might be the second player left winger man u made a bid of 96mil im pretty sure it was rejected and i think there return with a better 1

FORLAN
could be a shock signing u never i would love him back at OT

CAHILL
could come in if vidc leave 15mil

Anderson straight swap for Wilson Palacios. In my opinion this should go down. Good business for both clubs as no money would be spent. Anderson is the type of midfielder that Harry would love. He's combative but loves to go forward, vision is also there in the pass. He had loads of pace, so would fit Tottenham better than Man United. It would also solve the defensive midfield problem as well as the budget problem for Man United as no money would be spent. Editor what do you think about this? {editor's note – I don't see how that move would benefit Spurs, Palacios is the player that fits their need too.}

Rangers are about to raid Manchester United to take at least one of Fergie's wonderkids on loan. The three in the frame are Macheda, De Laet and Scottish kid David Gray. Also, Barda from Tel Aviv is an active signing target along with Chris Brunt, but Rino Gattuso is a dream. James McArthur and David Goodwillie will end up at Ibrox, and so might wait for it Scott McDonald. An approach for Rory Delap was knocked back. It's going to be kids or golden oldies, I'm afraid.

Celtic are to sign Kaka, Ronaldo, Messi and Podolski coz Dermot Desmond found £250m in the bicuit tin and all these players have stated they want to sign. Lol

Now for some realism Ledley will be signed on monday along with Bullard and i have also heard that Bojan will be coming on loan for the season. Ramis and a winger from the french league not sure of his name to replace the outgoing Mcgeady. Also leaving will be Boruc Hinkel Samaras and Crosas

Stevie Bhoy

Bojan to Celtic realism ?? no i think the only options we have for up front is stokes i don't want hooper he is linked with leeds and blackpool that's says it all.Reports in italy are saying that celtic are interested in taking stefano okaka on loan.Celtic were interested in him in january but went to fulham

 

11 Jul 2010 00:48:19
Ok i just want to put one thing straight, no team will buy 15 players in one go, as the manager wouldn't want to mess with the shape of the team (except maybe for man city)
and im also just wondering if there are any actual leeds Rumours?
Hooper, Koren etc,
oh yeh and the reason why noones heard anything about Macarthur to wigan, its because hes deciding whether to take the leeds option(play in championship for a season then get promoted therefore it would be better than going to crappy wigan)or go to wigan and be part of a team who is lucky still to be in the premier league

 

11 Jul 2010 00:49:00
One of my friends works for sky Sports News I recently posted about Joe Cole going to Liverpool, well looks like he sailed me up the river because he has done a complete Uturn on it now. He did say though that rumour has it Liverpool are very close to a take over every one is trying to be the first but nobody can find anything out, they are doing a very good job of keeping everything quiet. Also he said word around the office is that King Kenny had already put some research into what players would be good signings for liverpool and mentioned a few names to Woy such as liverpool fan Turan (great signing would play for the badge) who kenny has kept an eye for the last season. The only problem is and this is just speculation now that Roy does not want to start signing players untill he knows whos in charge an what budget is going to be made available. there is logic in these rumours because why would hodgson want to spread a small budget for second rate players to make sure he has the back up for positions when in a short time he may have a big kitty and be able to get quality signings?

 

11 Jul 2010 01:04:42
Roy Hodgson has been working hard to make Joe Cole his first prize capture of the summer.

Liverpool are talking to Cole and his representatives, but fear the Londoner wants to stay near the capital for family reasons.

The Reds are prepared to pay around £100k a week to Cole, whod be guaranteed more first team football than he may get at Arsenal or even Spurs.

Ed, is it true that LFC are in talks with J Cole and his representatives? {editor's note – they certainly spoke to Cole's representatives, but I think that it never got any further than that.}

11 Jul 2010 01:24:18
Ok pretty much all my post before were stuff ive heard about and wanted to happen these next 1s i have done my research on

OUTSVIDIC 2026MIL there won't be a swap plus cash have man u and madrid ever done a player + cash deal wit any team not loans to other team and correct me if im wrong //i doubt this will happen as madrid have pepe and albiol for center backs

ANDERSONhe is not leaving i remember this time last year all are fans wanted to sell nani now hes 1 of are best players half are fans don't give youth a chance has to be an instant success + we rejected a bid from a french team in january

BERBATOVhe may leave if 20 mil is offered i hope he doesn't because i no his qualities ac milan and wolfsburg seem interestedwolfsburg would only buy him if they sell dzeko or grafite i think and i doubt milan will as they have pato baloteli ronaldinho and hunterlaar and once again don't see a cash + player deal

CARRICKhe is the only player i think we should sell never impressed me except for a part of the 08/09 season i would like to seem pogba and gibson play more

INS
sir alex has said he will bring in atleast 1 player but i think it may be 2 only 1 big name though

OZIL/SNEIJDER

CARRICK

Arsenal have not offered Clichy in a swap deal for Melo. This is ludicrous and another made up rumour believed by some idiots. Ok, so Arsenal have been interested in Melo and Juventus like Clichy, but a swap will not happen. Firstly, Clichy is one of Wenger's most loyal players and he loves Arsenal. Secondly, Melo is good, but a liability as proved in the World Cup and his last two seasons in Serie A. Thirdly, swap deals hardly ever happen as they are too complicated, apart from on Football Manager.
Jack Wilshere is also unlikely to move on loan this season. Wenger will play him again in the Emirates Cup and assess the situation after, especially as Ramsey will be closer to fitness by then. Joe Cole is very unlikely as he is not good enough, too expensive (wages) and too similar in stature and ability to our other players.
On to signings, a strong centre back and a gk are on the radar. Scharzer is very close and my money is on Marquez as the centre back. After this I can't see any other signings (unless a real bargain or quality player becomes available, like Suarez), especially as Wellington Silva is joining in Jan and he is special.
Gills news, S Jackson close to move to Saints although Norwich may up their bid to get the striker.

mascherano will go, lucas will go, torres and gerrard will stay, babel will have one last season where he prefers to play up front which may work out, riera will stay but degen insua and possibly skrtel could go

I am a ManU fan. all you guys understand something. United is interesting in signing Ozil, Benzema, Sneijder, Khedira, Mueller, Balotelli, James Milner and some other players. And i am repeating myself. "IS INTERESTING". We are not gonna buy all of them. So pls stop think that u are playing football manager. We have already sign 2 players. 1 or two more will arrive or even none else! We need an attacking player, a winger, a defensive midfielder and a striker. If berbatov leaves then we ll get a striker, if not.none else is coming. If carrick leaves then we ll buy a dm else none. from what i heard and wht i read so far i thing either balotelli or Ozil or even both will sign and that's all! Ferguson will give time on diouf and pogba this year.
