Southampton are considering a loan move for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaud Courtois in the summer if he chooses against a second year at Athletico. Chelsea would be keen for him to gain Premier League experience so long as Saints are in the Prem.(15)(11)A. Madrid have an option to loan him for another year I think.. Could be wrong but I believe they do

leicester to sign younes kaboul from
spurs in summer if they are promoted
also beckford will leave mills will stay
and 1 big name prem striker will join.(9)(60)Id agree with the big name being Jermaine Defoe, Michael Owen or Kenwyne Jones.
As you say. . . If were promoted bt i believe we canAnd how much do you think Kaboul will cost you .... he'll be 10 - 15m which I cant see Leicester affording.You/ll not make play offs end ofBig name striker Emile HeskeyCant afford it? If they needed to spend 15 mil they could and would an that person that just said we wont make playoffs, we need to gain 3 points on teams above who are not in form an were better on goal differenceI love it when Leicester fans come on here, it proper makes my day.
When are you going to realise you are not the team you lot think you are and at the end of the season, when you still in the championship, there will be a fire sale due to the new regulations with money that will start to being introduced.
What really an semis Leicester have cheated before with money and they still have not learnt there lesson. I really hope you lot go out of business. The picture on your lots faces would be priceless.Probably one of the most ridiculous rumours I've read. Tottenham won't sell Kaboul he's been one of their best players this season and no disrespect to Leicester he PSG were offering him a huge wage to move their last summer which he declined far more than Leicester would ever be able to affordWe got plenty of of money to buy who we want u numpty!! Fair enuf we have underperformed this year but were a club with a great ambition and plenty of money...you might be another leicester h8r but we'll see who is laughing in the long run

LeicesterLadYou lot are deluded Leicester can afford anyone they want FACT!!!

LeicesterLadWhat kind of football fan wishes for a club to go out of business? I dnt really like portsmouth bt hopefully they survive {Ed025's Note - well said mate..I'm a Derby fan and I don't want Leicester, Portsmouth or even Forest to go out of business but when are clubs going to realise that they can't keep on having Sugar Daddies to bale them out when things get rough. Start living within your means or more clubs will be going bust and it will be a sad day when that happens. Just look at Rangers and smell the coffee!Because if a club goes into administration, which is cheating at the end of the day, gets a second chance to try and run there club in a financially stable way and then spend the money they did in the summer, knowing that the financial rules will be coming into affect shortly, they should be treated like any other business and made to stop trading.
Why should Leicester be allowed to get away with it?? They nearly went bust and rather than learning there lesson, they get themselves back into the exact same situation of spending far more than they bring in.
That is why I hope they go bust.So many envious people makes me laugh up lcfcHow have we got ourselves in the same situation? you know nothing! The reason we went into administration 10 years ago was coz we spent 32mil on a new stadium then got relegated that year.. it was the right thing to do as we had spent many back to back seasons in the premiership! So get your facts right Leicester have never overspeant on players we have always been a selling club and now we have a little bit of investment ppl are bitching and moaning! Why dont you concentrate on your clubs and do 1

LeicesterLadSo cause leicester have owners with money your jealous?People react to stupid rumours. Stupid rumours like 'Kaboul to Leicester'. It is laughable. You have spent a fortune and will finish outside the Play Offs.

Any truth that Millwall to sign joel lynch at end of the season as he cant settle in down in nottingham as he wants to go back home to london.. any truth ed? {Ed003's Note - Not heard that mate }(3)(17) 


 
Until this season lynch has been very average, but for the whole of this season he has been superb. If he does leave leave he will be hard to replace.If Lynch did leave for London he would go somewhere higher than MillwallSeeing how Lynch isn't from London then I don't see why this would be true

 


11 Apr 2012 16:19:18
its pretty much nailed on that stoke city will sign romeu lukaku on a season loan from chelsea next season(29)(12)

 


11 Apr 2012 16:11:29
Gabby Agbonlahor to stay at villa not goto sunderland, as he wants to stay at the club throughout the rest of his career since he is a villa fan through and through.

Realistic football fan(21)(21)And he has no ambition.Realistic football fan, hes a great player, he wont stay at an underachieving club, he'l move on eventually to further his England chances maybe Everton, Arsenal or SpainHe said on sky sports some months ago he wants to mimic giggs at utd by stayin at villa his whole career. So ur both tlkin BSWe'l see when a top 10 team comes in for him, money talks . . .Thats crapFact: arsenal bid 15m for agbonlahor & agbonlahor declined the move.
Agbonlahor is part of Villa for the next 10 or so years.
villa for life - he isAnything can happen, may not like a new manager, may get an offer thats unrefuseable or when/if your relagated

 


11 Apr 2012 15:50:10
norwich and wba to battle for leeds star robert snodgrass in the summer.norwich also interested in aston villa miodfielder barry bannan(28)(19) 


 
To Repeat myself yet again, Lambert is no longer interested in Snodgrass, unless he was sold at a Real bargain price, after getting bids of 3 rejected by Leeds in the summer, we captured Pilkington from Huddersfield for 2M, which has proved to be a real winner who will only get better with premier league experience. Norwich have got a much younger player with much better sell on revenue,who could potentially get fill England Int honours in the next couple of seasons, Rumours have suggested Norwich have already rejected a 6M bid from LIverpool.Bannan is entering the Villa starting 11 now.
Leave it for a mini team like Norwich? no chance!Norwich Are looking at an awful lot of Scottish Internationals, Rhodes, Bannan, Snodgrass, Naismith and Fletcher! Why??? Lambert's doing?Rhodes yes
Bannan no
Snodgrass ship may have sailed as we signed Pilkington instead and we will be looking for pace, not Snodgrass' strength
Naismith we wont be looking at
Fletcher isnt a Lambert type signing so id be surprised, although i think him , Rhodes and Holt could be a very good top half strike force next season.Hilarious to see Villa regarding Norwich as a "minor" team-remind me which of the two teams is underachieving near the bottom of the league with a poor squad, unpopular Manager and which plays tedious football?
Not Norwich thats for certain.Snodgrass and Norwich is a non.When we made a bid of 3 Million, Bates turned it down.
He won't get anything like that for him now.
Tough luck Kenny, maybe someone will give you 1.5 mill for him?

Agbonlahor is staying at aston villa as he has confirmed so many times.
warnock & collins are both on 60k p/w & sunderland can offer no-where near that.
you are aiming well above your weight!
o'neill will be offered a much better job at liverpool or the england job & will accept it.So you're adam johnsons agent and you know how much he is in do you!!??Since when is adam johnson on 100,000 a week?Pretty sure sunderland can offer 60k a week cause thats how much bent was onGod no we don't want Brmable our defense is poor enough already!Hmm so sunderland have been given 30 odd million to buy players when they have a great squad already and im right in saying they are deep in the red. Ed any truth {Ed003's Note - It does seem a lot}

A fee of £20m has been mentioned for their long term target. A huge hike from the £12m Schalke paid AC Milan after an amazing season at the Veltins Arena.(5)(7)Their two main targets it seems are remy and llorenteI believe the clause is 20 mill euros not pounds so around 16.5 mill poundsHe wont want to be playing europa league football next season boys!!Good job he's not moving to chelsea then

Fuller wanting out to sign for a championship side, rumoured are Burnley, Derby, Leicester, Watford(12)(20)Stoke refused to break the wage cap for Crouch so why do it for Kadlec?Bolton are interested in FullerObviously influenced by football managerStoke's wage cap is 45k. But more importantly; Stoke already have a few strikers that can't score goals, why waist money on one more?

11 Apr 2012 12:26:15
John Bostock is tired of being thrown out on loan by Harry Redknapp and is looking too gain a more settled career and former club palace or Charlton(6)(3)If he's tired or fed up he should grow up then and stop with all the bling and thinking hes a footballing god! bale and livermore sorted themselves out and so now should bostock or he could well be in danger of wasting a huge talent!He has been on loan to Swindon since 20th March..

 


11 Apr 2012 11:44:57
Tottenham

Redknapp - England
Jordan - England
Bond - England
Allen - England
Modric - Man U
Adebayor - Back to City, who will sell him to anyone that can meet his wage demands!
Bassong - Will be sold
Bale - Real Madrid
Walker - Real Madrid
Gomes - Will be sold

Going to be an interesting summer at WHL...(15)(18)Walker is said to be interesting Man Utd. Can see a bit of a clear out in the Summer Kranjcar, Bassong, Gomes and maybe Defoe to Stoke which seems likely with Remy in and maybe a return for Carrick which has been rumoured.Just picking on what I think are a couple of holes,
Bale, it would be hard to turn down barcelona or madrid? but I think I still need at LEAST one more season at spurs!
Walker's rumour is just chip paper.
modric, I'm sure the little pearl will go? not so sure to man utd though? They can grumble all they want? They can even pretend to know more about spurs than a spurs fan? but modric's price would have to be more than what chelsea offered...just over the 40 mill mark! can the united of the north afford it? Who knows but I doubt it, when redknapp goes, a report will surface that spurs already have two very very god offers for the little pearl! one italian and the other spanish ( no idea who they are ) talking of redknapp, yes, jordon and bond will go but
allen will become part of the backroom staff along with ferdinand and one other former player? Tim sherwood will be promoted to assistant manager!Gomes won't be sold his contract will expite in summer, Bassong will be sold and it's unlikely that Adebayor will stay because of wage demands. The rest is simply speculation

 


11 Apr 2012 09:44:32
man city full back kolarov looks likely to move on this summer with juventius the likeliest of destinations.man city have scouted lilles lucas digtne as a possible replacment.(7)(5)

 


11 Apr 2012 09:44:16
Swindon looking at Grimsby forward Liam Hearn, who played with current swindon defender Aden Flint at Alfreton, where he was captain. Grimsby paid £30000 in the summer for him and swindon looking at making a bid of £250000(2)(10)That's weird. Considering that Grimsby rejected 500,000 from Peterborough for him in January.You can only play with 11 a side....the amount of people Swindon are interested in on various websites, you'd think they had 3 teams in the league. Where on earth do you Swindon fans get your stuff from....Yeah cos Grimsby can afford to turn down 500k, that would buy the entire squad!!!If you think someone is worth a certain price you are not going to accept less. Are you!?

 


11 Apr 2012 09:42:01
liverpool are hoping to strike a dealwth fiorientina for winger maunuel vargas.(14)(9)But he's a good player not the normal Liverpool target are you sure?Reported interest surfaced before the Enrique and Downing deals. Lpool might still be looking for a winger, and Vargas is decent, but I doubt he'll move to Anfield.

 


11 Apr 2012 09:32:01

11 Apr 2012 00:18:31
Burnley fullback Kieran Trippier is attracting interest from Wolves, Wigan and West Ham. The asking price from Burnley is apparently in the region of 2 million.(13)(4)Wolves are the only team in that trio that know what league they will be in next year so I doubt this one.They've only just sign him, think they ask for a bit more than that considering

 


11 Apr 2012 00:01:18
Burnley will sign Josh McQuoid, Jason Pearce, Kane Ferdinand and Joel Ward this summer.

Rodriguez will be sold for £6m to one of Newcastle, Sunderland, Southampton (if they are promoted) and Norwich.(8)(19)Spoke to Jason Pearce and Joel Ward after the match tonight. They will not be leaving.They won't have a choice, theyre wages are too high for League 1...the club can't turn down money like that for them. Also, that's if they even have a club to play for LOLI spoke to this and that and ronaldo is coming to swansea in the summer. you all talk BS saying you spoke to him n thatPearce & Ward wont be moving that far north, with their loyalty to pompey, they will prefer to play non league footie next season, in a wessex league, as Portsmouth will be liquidated and desolved from the football league by April 26th

I was told it would be a currently employed Championship manager that is first choice. I believe it to be Holloway, but that is as much a gut feeling as anything else.}(7)(7)Won't be either Ince or Holloway -both are too outspoken for the boards likingPlease take InceAgree i just wish morgan/moxley would goIt will either be Sam Allardyce or Lee Clarke.Someone with contacts at wolves has told me we have an agreement with blues for hughton. I hope its true.

 


10 Apr 2012 23:14:15
Reading want to bring home-sick Robbie Keane back to England this summer.

Royals also want Crystal Palace pair Zaha and Clyne.(7)(24)Most teams in the Championship would want those players!If he was homesick, surely he'd go to Ireland instead of London, no?

He's still got a year left. Any chance of the bs

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is expected to add competition to his superb strikeforce in the summer by completing the signature of Anderlecht forward Matias Suarez on a pre contract deal in the coming days. The 23 year old was subject of a £17 million bid from Pardew last weekend and was accepted by the potential champions of Belgium.(4)(34)...17 million? what on earth....?Seems completely against Newcastles current spending behaviourPossible do u have a source

 


10 Apr 2012 18:55:05
Molde and former Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is wanting to sign Birmingham's young goalkeeper Jack Butland in the summer. The Norwegian champions have already had a bid rejected for the England under 21 stopper but is expected to double his bid.
Southampton have already had a £2.5 million bid accepted for Butland, who is currently on loan at Cheltenham but manager Nigel Adkins is only going to pursue the deal if they win likely promotion to the Premier Legaue.
Also, Portuguese champions Porto have made contact over the 19 year old and are expected to make a £3 million bid for Butland.(12)(5)

10 Apr 2012 16:47:57
Blades fan here. Congrats for trophy win. Our keeper wants to stay, but fans don't want him and management checking out alternatives. Many of us would like your keeper, from what we have seen of him. Could offer Creswell, Collins, Simonson, or any striker other than Evans as a swap. Not sure if we have any cash though if you don't fancy any of those - depends if we go up.(0)(8)

Jermain Defoe is looking likely to leave Spurs in the summer, as he wants to play as many games as he can. Many teams from the Premiership and high up in the Championship are looking at the England international. Teams such as, Stoke, Newcastle, West Brom, Everton, Leicester and Reading.(19)(8)He's better than all those teams bar newcastle...There is no way he would go to a championship team, or even a newly promoted team until they proved premier league capabilities. Newcastle is the only possibility I can see out of that list.Not a chance to NewcastleThe most possible of those lists are Reading as there not up north, he wants to stay south as do most players born south or foreign.Yeah 'cause newcastle are short of goal scoring strikers?? If he does leave spurs (and that's a BIG if) I can maybe see him moving to stoke, re-join Crouchy (proven partnership, especially with Palacios looking set to be a key player next season) and Stoke will be loosing 2 or 3 forwards in the summer so will be looking at signing in those areas.Can not see Harry letting him go (assuming he is still at WHL), what's more he is a London lad and never played outside of London.Defoe did play for Bournemouth albeit on loan. Incidentally his house is for sale and Stoke are the club most likely to sign him and tried to push a deal through in January. Harry apparently will let go in the Summer and has Ba and Remy on his shopping list (ironically two players who almost joined Stoke). Many said that Crouch wouldn't join Stoke. Pulis is a huge Defoe fan and just for the record check out the game v Spurs at WHL recently with the two of them walking off the pitch joking together. Stoke have the money of course as wellAnd Stoke play kick n rush football defoe would never go there trust me.Why trust you as you have proved in one sentence that you know NOTHING ?Portsmouth and bournemouth aren't in london so check your facts before you state something untrue

Peter Reid been approached by Bournemouth on the recommendation of Tony Pulis

Kenywne Jones a surprise target for a return to Sunderland as Stoke are keen on Gardiner

Andy Wilkinson wanted by Wolves as Stoke want Jarvis and Johnson in the Summer

Huth looks set to leave the Britannia as does Upson for China and Sorensen to Germany or Turkey.
Plenty of fringe players to join them.

Two Ajax players interesting the Potters

One big big name is Stoke's Summer transfer target. A well known international who almost joined on loan during Pulis' first stint.(11)(5)Peter reid hasent been approached by bournemouth if he has how do you knowHow do you know peter reid has been approached by bournemouthSorry but you know for a fact that he hasn't do you? Of course you don't so why say so?

Peter Reid is one of 4 or 5 potential managers that Bournemouth have asked about and YES I do know for sure.

I posted on here that Reid was leaving Thailand to join Stoke previously to give you a bit of a heads up. Still, you know better eh. {Ed003's Note -Hi guys bournemouth fan here do you have any ideas of who eles we have asked about apart from reid who i think will be greatNo way Huth is leaving Stoke. Since joining Stoke Huth is the highest scoring defender in the EPL, he loves those set pieces.How do you know Huth isn't leaving Stoke? He hasn't signed a new contract, explain that?............he's massively thought of I agree but his family is the issue. Guessing isn't going to make him stay. As for Bournemouth I heard are 5 in the running and O'Driscoll was favourite but seems to be stalling hence them looking elsewhere.I would imagine the bournemouth managers job is paul groves to lose.heard to ex premier managers been linked guess one is phil brown.rather have mick mccarthy.

Mario Balotelli could be heading to AC Milan for £60m and £200,000 a-week in wages(7)(49)60m? you could buy him three times for thatHe's trouble so Man City have to offload, that means no one will be paying top dollar for him use your loaf mate!3 times!
with no one else interested and city wanting to sell - try 10 times - City will take an 18m hit on him / 12m on Nasri, 15m on Dzeko 10m on Barry and 15m on Tevez - 70m in total!

 


10 Apr 2012 14:35:51

French left back timothee kolodziejczak, who's contract expires in the summer is being looked at by a number of clubs including ipswich, brighton and charlton.(7)(5)With nine appearances in the past four years he'd be a bit of a gamble for anyone one taking him, cant see it!

Sunderland will not be signing bendtner permanently, and will be losing stephane sessegnon and craig gardner. Martin O'neill is thought to have an interest in sebastian giovinco, adam johnson and steven fletcher - also, PSG have an interest in demba ba, who no longer seems to be the main man on tyneside(5)(5)I heard last night that O'Neill is interested in taking Kenwyne Jones back to Sunderland. He is a MO'N type of player to be fair and did want him at Villa despite what many Sunderland fans may think of the playerI think you are correct with bendtner, but sess and gardner will not be moving anywhere. sess has already said he is happy and MON has also echoed this.

as for ba, i don't know, not a mag so...

 


10 Apr 2012 12:54:11
who is going to be the next Bournemouth manager, anyone got an ideas? id like someone with experience, alan curbishley lee clark someone who has been there with a bit of knowledge


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Curbishley, no chance.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Curbs and Clark wont go to League one. Clarke would possibly return at a push to a League one side but if he did it'll be someone like a relagated Championship team.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phil brown

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Curbishley wont drop to L1 you have to be dreaming and for a start would anyone want to work with Mitchell your dodgy chairman and a russian no ones knows anything about who is probably as dodgy as Mitchell the expert on liquidating his companies.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've heard that Sean O'Driscoll is favourite.....and is the bookies favourite

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Curbishly is becoming a George Graham....linked to every job but never taking one. Soon he'll be so out of touch that clubs won't bother asking.

-------------------------------------

I've heard a lot about Carl Fletcher joining Bournemouth at the end of the season. Would be great to have Lil Fletch back at the club


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Graham Westley will be a good choice for you!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mourinho was spotted on the prom and capello was seen in the local italian ice cream shop #justsaying

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bournemouth fans are really in cuckoo land you have no chance of Curbishley you are too small a club for him. He just turned down a premier league team so little old Bournemouth sorry more likely your old manager who is a good manager.

Your all obssesed with the fact you have this russian guy and you can get anyone in to your club but with all due respect you will never be a big club you have a samll fan base, small ground and poor attendances and a dodgy Chairman.

-------------------------------------

Paul Groves will probably get the job. He's impressed in his first 4 games and there is a close friendship between him, Shaun Brookes and chairman Eddie Mitchell(5)(2)

Its ppl like you that give Leicester fans a bad name on ere with your bullst predictions! Yes we have a good chance of making the playoffs if we beat Millwall ( which if we play like we did against ipswich we will ) but i doubt 4-1 thats a tad optimistic, but we put ourselves in with a chance & straight away your talking of WINNING the playoffs, have you been watching the same team as me this year coz if you have then you would realise its very unlikley

LeicesterLadNo way wouldjack Hobbs be rejoining Grumpy pearson.Matt mills??Heskey- Can trap a ball further than most can kick it

Notts County are looking at signing anew goalkeeper for next season as al three goalkeepers at the club are out of contract. They are looking at signing slocombe from Scunthorpe, Lee from Chesterfield or smith from forest with the in demand german goalkeeper Fabian Speiss as second choice.(3)(6)

 


10 Apr 2012 10:15:55
Peterborough united striker Paul Taylor is a target for WBA. Roy Hodgson was in attendance at London Road during the posh's victory over Leicester last week(5)(6)Nowhere near good enough for the PLHe was probably looking at Joe Lewis or George BoydI saw Taylor play v forest on Monday, he's a good player who always wants the ball, but I can't c him cutting it in the prem. He was miles better than Boyd who looked like he was going thru the motions.

 


10 Apr 2012 06:45:15
With many players out of contract at Meadow Lane, Notts County will make sweeping changes for next year, in bid to go up (assuming they don't go through the play offs this time)

Ins include
Lee Barnard
David Button
Lloyd Sam
Conor Doyle
Paul Green
Paul McShane(3)(14)Paul Green's signing a new contract at Derby, you can have Conor Doyle thoughI'm sure some of these players are targets, however there is one small problem, none of them will accept bottle tops as wages.Lloyd Sam is already there, how can he be an addition?I'm assuming it means Lloyd Sam permanently as he is only on loan at the moment?

 


10 Apr 2012 03:07:12
Town to sign prolific truro striker stewart yetton and port vale striker marc richards at the end of the season {Ed002's Note - It might be better if you said which "Town".}(2)(5)I did not post this rumour but I suspect it refers to Shrewsbury Town who have already tried to sign Richards - it will be easier when he can be tempted with League 1 football next year.Not sure if any Port Vale players would make the Nantwich Town squad

 


10 Apr 2012 02:19:08
Burnley Football Club are hot on the heals of Peterborough star George Boyd who is on the Transfer List after rejecting a new deal at London Road. Jay Rodriguez is looking likely to leave Turf Moor in the summer window as Stoke, Southampton and Newcastle have shown major interest. If Jay leaves Turf Moor, Burnley will use the money to sign George Boyd, Josh McQuoid, Tom Soares and Craig Dawson. Burnley are expecting Rodriguez to leave for around £6m -7.5m and the transfers of George Boyd, Josh McQuoid, Tom Soares and Craig Dawson will come to around £5m.(12)(3)You got no chance of signing craig dawson

 


10 Apr 2012 01:04:32
spurs are set to lose a host of big names in the summer even if they clinch forth place with players such as bale, luka modric, defoe, walker, lennon all set to leave with a number of big clubs believed to be interested in each one of the talented spurs stars even with the vast amount of money set to be received there would be no chance of spurs being able to replace all that class in one transfer window and with boss rednapp also set to leave worrying signs for spurs they better pray to finish in the top 4(13)(20)What a load of nonsense, back to school!What twaddle no intel on this

Defoe may go as he just does not get enough games. Cannot blame him

Addy may go due to wage demands

Bale may go for the right price

Modric will only go for silly money


BarryAll the important players are tied to long contracts and as Chelsea discovered Levy will hold players to their contracts if he wants to keep them
No need to worry, Ade was always a loan and will not get the money he wants Defoe could well move to get regular playing time but Spurs already have targetted a couple of quality strikers for summerEven if you finish in the top 4, it doesnt make you one of the the big 4!
Ha ha lol

 


10 Apr 2012 01:00:21
Leicester sent scouts to watch Nick Powell on Monday but are unlikely to sign him as they face competition from Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool.(12)(6)I would love to know what they put in the water in Leicester, thinking they are on par with top six prem sides lol you lot are so funny. Your not even the biggest side in the east midlands proper funnyLeicester fans have always been like it. Even in League One they were the best thing since sliced bread!Must b a forest fan then.... ttWhy would a Forest fan take the time to do that, they don't care about LeicesterPlease enlighten me who is the biggest club in the east midlands coz it certainly aint derby OR forest they have been ste for years, you cant keep thinking there big clubs just on what they have achieved in the past

LeicesterLadWhat have derby achieved in the last few years apart from dissapointment, does 10 points ring a bell?

Stoke are interested in Ajax defender Tobias Alderweireld to replace Robert Huth who is set to leave the club in the Summer after refusing to sign a new contract. Huth has been linked with a move back to his native Germany for some months(13)(6)

 


09 Apr 2012 14:54:58
Jan Vertonghen (Ajax) looks definite to be leaving Ajax this summer with lots of big European clubs chasing him such as Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and even Italian giants Juventus whom are all looking to strenghten their defences for the upcoming 2012-13 season. Arsenal are in poll position to nailing the tough tackling Belgian defender who could be pairing up with former Ajax defender Thomas Vermaelen at the Emirates. This valued price tag on Vertonghen is to be around £7-£10 million.(18)(4)How can you class Liverpool as a european giant? Past glories maybe? They are miles away from Arsenal and SpursAnd Newcastle and ChelseaThey can kind of be called a big club (past glories), but I get where you're coming from. They've been horrific in recent years.

He is a pretty good defender. Lot's of clubs are chasing him.

 


09 Apr 2012 14:43:13
Reading have sent their chief scout to Ipswich this afternoon. They are looking at Aaron Cresswell as an alternative to Ian Harte if they are in the Premier League next season.(23)(9)Hands off pleaseIf they were at Ipswich I would think Martin would be a more likely target.Arron Cresswell is Ipswich's solid left back, if he does leave it will cost Reading a fair packet in transfer fee's, PJ aint looking to sell, we are building for next season

According to the Mirror Southampton are considering buying Doyle from Wolves.

As a Saints fan, I like to think we have a bit more ambition and creativity than making this signing.

Thankfully it is in the mirror so probably absolute BS. No disrespect to Doyle, he is solid but has never really been more than just an 'ok' striker.(17)(8)Bit like your club then chap !Who the hell do you think you are you aint even been promoted and you say doyle aint good enough for ya.s get a grip mate.To the second post. umm what position are your team in lol you idiot. were southampton and were top of the league!!Doyle should go to Reading.Way to good for Southampton.Your right it is BS.He may be just what you need, knows what it takes to scrap at the foot of the league and survive for a few seasons. Bryher PilgrimDont think he will go to saints as he ,s had enough of playing for whipping boy,s,as you lot will find out if you do get promoted.I'd consider this unlikely, he is in a vaguely similar mould to Billy Sharp and Tadanari Lee who we brought in in January. It would be foolish to bring in another who plays a similar way. Also everyone knows how adkins likes to do his deals behind closed doors, so any rumours are likely just rumoursIgnore previous comment, i got him confused with someone else. He is different to those two, however used to playing a different system to what Southampton useThis is the 2nd post we are reading and on friday we.ll see who the person is.Tbh im not a wolves fan, but doyle is too good for saints.

if it wasnt for the fact wolvles have ruined him he could get in any side in the prem par the top 6...

he should have signed for everton when he had the chanceHe would score more than lambert in the premNo offence mate but you're starting to sound like the Norwich fans on here who seem to think that no-one is good enough for them. Doyle would be a massive coup for Soton.Kevin Doyle will NEVER go to a team like southampton, you'll just buy players that are useless like that fat billy sharp!Hi. I wrote this original post. Just to clarify:

I do think Doyle is decent but Saints tend to be a bit more creative and ambitious when making signings than just signing 'safe bets'. I think Doyle would be solid and a safe signing, but if you look at types we buy they tend to be less well know and a bit more exotic (e.g. tadanari lee, steve de ridder etc) with the exception of Billy Sharp who was a rush buy to fill the gap incase lambert or lee were injured.

As I said: Doyle is a decent player but based on Southampton's previous signings they tend to be a bit more ambitious and adventurous rather than signing an 'ok' (by premier league standards) current prem player. Don't think we are 'too good' for doyle, I think we look for different players, that is all.Arrogence and Saints fans go hand in hand on this site who would you prefer Messi as he would love to play for youSaints fans show as much Arrogence as any other fan on here, this is a banter site if you dont like it then dont read it, as one of the comment said allready Adkins does all his buisness behined closed doors so this is just a stupid rumour.

What you got to rememer is at the begining of the season people on here said we would be relagated, half way through we would not keep the pace we set up, at Xmas our bubble would burst, yet we have 5 games left, top of the league. I think we have every right to shove it in some of your faces dont you. However most of us Saints fans no there is still 5 games left and know we have not been promoted yet, we are just taking one game at a time.Totally agree, mate. Arrogence (sic) on this site means 'we hate your successful club proving us wrong'. Oh and we don't need Messi cos we've got Lallana (watch 'em bite). {Ed025's Note - people dont hate you because you are successful mate...its because some of your fans are getting ideas above their station!..they are very nasty towards other fans, especially pompey, and as has been said before...nobody likes a smart arse!..if you show some humility and respect towards others, you just might just get some respect back..Sorry Ed025 i will show no respect to Pompey fans after the way they gloated and gave us a hard time when we were in trouble, they showed us no respect what so ever, they were praying that we went out of buisness. as for being nasty towards other fans, i thought it was a Banter site Ed025 thats all it is, its just banter. Fans do hate a sccessful club and call arrogence if you like this season for a change we have been successful so why shouldn't we be full of our selves. {Ed003's Note - I dont hate successful clubs nor do I hate my rivals,I dislike them and enjoy when things are not going right for them..but hate?? over a game ?? }I Couldn't agree more Ed025 i personally dont hate Pompey fans nor there club and Saturday was a brilliant atmosphere which is why i dont want to see Pompey go out of buisness but what anoys me about people on this site is that Saints fans get slated for giving Skates a hard time yet trust me if the tables were turnt they would be doing the same to us, have to wonder if we would be getting the same sympathetic backing the Sates seem to get. {Ed003's Note - On here you would,Oh, I'm Ed 003 btw ;-) }Ed025 : I said 'proving us wrong' and we have and that's what people hate/dislike (semantics). As the post above mine says, people have been writing us off ALL season. If we finish 3rd or even 4th it will be a successful season for us (humble enough for you). On the current banter page there are 2 posts initiated by Pompey fans with Saints responding. Is that a crime? Oh and if someone wants to make a smart arse comment about Messi, i will give a smart arse response.Children please behave!Banter is a word used by upstarts to justify acting like a d#@k

Personally wish Saints well should they get promoted but a small section of their fans who post on here will be intolerable on here should they do so.

Stoke City
Ins
Jarvis - Wolves - Full Transfer
A deal has already been made and
accepted but cannot be a comfirmed
signing until wolves are comfirmed
Relegated.

Lukaku - Chelsea - Season Loan
Stoke almost loaned the young Belgain
striker at the start of the season
but was canceled because of the
club's rule.

Stoke City
Outs
Woodgate - ? - Full Transfer
Woodgate could be a free agent if he
cannot complete his clause with the
club that is to play 3 more games until
the end of the season.

Upson - Many Clubs - Full Transfer
Struggling to get much first team
football at Stoke City and would
prefer to move. Southampton and
norwich remain favourates.

Tonge - Championship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans, Championship
likey.

Soares - Championship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans, Championship
or Hibernian likely.

Jones - Many Clubs - Full Transfer
Struggling to get first team football
at Stoke City lots of English and
over seas sides interested in signing
the Trinidad & Tobago International
Striker. This remains the most likley
transfer selling for Stoke.(14)(7)A deal hasn't been struck with Jarvis although Stoke looks a likely destination for him. Intersting that someone mentions Joe Cole to QPR as Stoke are very keen and nearly took him on loan previouslyUpson to Norwich? Dream on.
No room for aging old hacks and has-beens at Carrow Road and certainly not Stoke rejects.
Bennett, Ayala, Whitbread and Ward will be our four first team options in CD next season, plus R Martin as cover there.Jarvis will be at Everton next season....defo!I agree with last post, Lambert is not looking for players like Upson, the wrong side of 32, more likely if he signs another centre back it will be a top young defender that he can further improve under his coaching team.
Ryan Bennett (England U21) who we recently signed from Peterborough for 3M has been amazing since he made the first team and is destined to gain full England honours if he continues to improve, he already looks a real talent.We will have higgnbottom plz he's classUpson has offers from China and the USA on the table and doubt he'd turn them down for Norwich who I doubt could afford him anyway or he'd even consider them.Clearly you know nothing about him, Upson is actually a Norfolk boy, and would love to play for his home county team, as for Norwich being able to afford him, are u having a laugh, his resale value is likely less than 1M, its irrelevant anyway because Norwich are not looking to sign players with no sell on value, and if he's so good why can't he get in the Stoke team, way past his best and destined for foreign adventures because they are the only clubs who will pay large money for 32 yr old's these days.
I was surprised Stoke signed him because he has been on the decline for a couple of seasons. Doubt any other premier league club will take him on next season.......I love it when people say a player would love this and that as if they know him personally :-) By the way, Stoke turned down an offer from Everton in January so what were you saying about knowing nothing and no other Prem club wanting him again?If a deal cannot be made for piener, jarvis will go to evertonI think the Norwich fan failed to grasp the fact that they couldn't probably afford Upson's wages and despite his love off all things in the area (lol) they have to actually pay the fella. Nothing to do with re-sale values etc. Bigger clubs want him anyway so academic.Dear oh dear, despite Norwich fans clearly explaining the reasons why Upson won't be getting his pension at Carrow Road, there are still those saying why the club can't or won't get him.

Listen. He's too old. Too expensive. And a Stoke reserve. And if Stoke are paying him so much money that Norwich couldn't afford to match it, then more fool Stoke. Rather a well ran club with sensible financial management than one that pays OTT wages to has beens they are now desperate to get off the wage bill.

Upson, like Robert Green, can love the area all he likes, but he isn't going back there to play football, now or ever.You obviously know NOTHING about Stoke and their finances. Stoke are one of the best run clubs in the country, completely solvent and brought in the likes of Upson and Woodgate on short contracts with Europe in mind. 4 seasons already comfortably in the Prem and that is something that despite getting carried away with already, Norwich in their current state can only dream about. One good season doesn't mean improvement next year etc. by not bringing in quality. Upson like I said has bigger fish to worry about than you lot.Di Matteo is a big fan of Lukaku, and will tell next season's manager not to sell

Pompey fans to buy Pompey the supporters trust say they've had loads of fans putting in round about £1000 and a few people have put a £5000 to 1 million(3)(25)What's that,air miles?Portsmouth shouldnt be allowed to exist.
Strip them of the FA Cup - they cheated to win it.
And liquidate the club09 Apr 2012 14:09:51
Wish you luck, but think its a bit optimistic at the moment according to this..

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/17598239HAHA

This is tragic. No one from pompey could afford 1,000, let alone 5,000. If they had that kind of money lying around they wouldn't be living in a hole like Portsmouth!It is this sort of financial ignorance that typifies this "club".
There is not a large support base for Pompey and it is not a wealthy area. Even so, if the supporters raised the 8m they think is needed how on earth would this amount of money finance a club, even if it was in League One?

There are no assets whatsoever and I fear the gullible supporters are being asked to part with money that will disappear as all the creditors money has over recent years.
Statistically, Portsmouth is an area with poor educational achievement but even so, do get real!CAFC Fan - just wishing you well

Stoke
Transfer Ins
Jarvis - Wolves - Full Transfer
A deal already made for a region
around 5-6 million for the Wolves
left winger but can only be a
comfirmed signing if Wolves get
relegated.

Lukaku - Chelsea - Season Loan
Stoke City were close into loaning the
young Belgian striker at the start of
the season but was canceled because
of the club's rule.

Transfer Outs
Sorenson - Many Clubs - Full Transfer
The Denmark goalkeeper may stay if
he can make the first team

Upson - Many Clubs - Full Transfer
Southampton and Norwich City remain
favourates to sign the ex- England
International, some how to save his
'Stoke Nightmare'

Woodgate - ? - Full Transfer
Woodgate may be a freeagent at the
end of the season unless he reaches
his clause where he will need to play 3
more matches for the club

Tonge - Champioship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans

Soares - Championship - Full Transfer
Not in first team plans(6)(11)Sorry but Stoke are getting worse & worse. Dream on!Soars might go to hibsIf you think Wolves will let you have Jarvis for 5 or 6 million then you must be deluded.Moxey does all transfer dealings.we dont need to sell and Jarvis as recently played for England.good luck thou : )As someone who knows the dealings at Stoke rather than guesses like yourself-Wolves will let Jarvis go it seems and Stoke seems his destination. I think Stoke fans are aware who Moxey is by the way and what he does :-) I think you're deluded if you think you'll keep your top players when you go down. Thanks for the 6 points.....As I previously commented on someone else's status, we are Championship bound and have to accept that some players will go and Jarvis to Stoke seems a reasonable transfer, especially if we could get 5m plus a fringe player, we have to be realistic.Very true Wolves fan and Pulis did try to sign Jarvis before but his friend at Gills, Scally was adamant he wouldn't do business with Pulis. Wolves will be in a decent financial state and be able to build after relegation and with the right appointment will come back. Obviously some players will be sold.
