Huddersfield Town have signed Dulwich Hamlet striker Daniel Carr from the start of next season
14 Apr 2013 20:35:12
Tell everybody you know that supports town to get behind them we have a rich wealthy chairman who can make differences in the summer. when the season ends you will find us still in the championship and signing quality players like the like of Vaughan and Danny's and some others. UP THE TOWN
15 Apr 2013 07:43:00
Has anybody heard the rumour that mark robins is having a look at Leon Clarke. That's the rumour on wolves rumours.
Wouldn't surprise me. He scored goals for Mark Robins at Coventry and has scored wherever he has played ans Town need a goal scorer.
Well we will be short of strikers with Lee and Novak out of contract, Beckford's loan up and no certainty Vaughan will stay or be bought and Robins knows Clarke so maybe some truth.
16 Apr 2013 07:47:02
I'd have Clarke but would you sign any over Coventry players?
16 Apr 2013 20:45:15
Huddersfield need some consistent players that have confidedence and belief.
12 Apr 2013 18:05:06
plymouth argyle are determinded to put their recent seasons misery behind them along with their run of bad goal scoring rates in a charge for promotion. to do this they plan to bring in 4 new strikers as well as selling some current ones. ruben reid will make his move permanent, joseph mendes will transfer from le mans as a former trialee much like gurrieri did, former torquay striker elliot benyon will sign on after disapointing with southend and finally marc richards or guy madjo will join to attempt to give argyle the strongest attacking force in the league next season. on their way out will be warren feeney and nick chadwick while argyle fight to keep tyler harvey. they will also hope to make permanent the move of lee cox and bring jason banton back to home park for another season to further his development.
I have heard this in a number of places, would love to see it happen, like to go up next season
I hope this is true
Tyler Harvey has got a pro contract for next season anyway
4 new strikers would be great but would we need someone of madjo age, we need to look for future stars that won't be fight a relegation battle but putting us back to where we belong.
Well if were looking at brining in the stongest attackforce then I hope we do not bring in benyon might aswell keep chadwick if your going to bring him in. the rest will be good signings along jack lester who is set to join.
Madjo is only 29 next year, he has speed strength a good finish and intelligent play, could play well into 30's and with 3 other young strikers it would make little difference
Im juat not sure about madjo,
also there is no way banton will come back
Would rather not have madjo, didn't really do anything when at Plymouth would rather have ryan jarvis
12 Apr 2013 17:37:43
Norwich City are eyeing up a move for midfielder Bibras Natkho of Rubin Kazan after scouts have been thoroughly impressed by the players performances this season.
The 25 year old Israeli midfielder would be available on a free transfer when his contract expires with Rubin Kazan in the summer.
12 Apr 2013 15:34:49
Southampton are rumoured to be surveying Granero's situation
12 Apr 2013 19:33:02
Should be able to get him fairly cheap - 3 or 4m and with good coaching/support could turn out well
12 Apr 2013 20:53:51
granero will move to swansea
No better than Cork, Sneiderlin, Davis or Ward prowse. Don't really want him
12 Apr 2013 16:18:08
Derby linked with Darius Henderson and Alex Baptise today!
Henderson I don't belive but the baptiste one seem more real as sounds from the club have said there interested
12 Apr 2013 15:24:38
Brian Mcdermott has been announced as Leeds manager press conference live on Yorkshire radio at 16:30
12 Apr 2013 14:58:45
Derby County are to sign Walsall striker Will Grigg in the summer, with Callum Ball going in the other direction.
Lost count of how many clubs have agreed to sign Grigg, can't all be true.
Think wages and ambition will mean he won't turn up at Derby. Nice to be proved wrong though :)
12 Apr 2013 12:07:31
Hi Ed I've heard a rumour that Allan Johnston (Queen of South manager) is going to be new Sheffield United manager in summer if Morgan dosent get them up. As Sheff you board are aware of Allan Johnston good work on no budget at QOS Anything in rumour?
12 apr 2013 13:51:38
arshavain (maybe retiring)
chu young park.
12 Apr 2013 12:41:41
Derby County to sign Arsenal left back Jernade Meade
We don't have the best of records getting loans from either Arsenal or Spurs. I would be weary of this.
12 Apr 2013 13:43:44
BENTEKE 14. 5 MILLION,
DRAGOVIC- 8 MILLION,
JOVETIC- 28 MILLION (MAYBE),
JEREMY TOUALAN- 7. 5 MILLION
Thats about 30 million more
than wenger will spend
12 Apr 2013 13:11:27
Arsenal and Sunderland have scouted Basel defender Dragovic. Arsenal scouted him at white hart lane in Basel's europa league 1st leg vs spurs.
So arsenal have got him then
Depends on who's more interested
12 Apr 2013 11:39:53
Bourmouth scout at walsall v sheff last satday looking at jamie paterson left winger 13 quality goals so far be a good buy if you go up
Good signing if it happens, I mean having 3 left wingers is always good. Pugh, Ritchie and now the new boy.
Paterson is a natural right footer or didiny you no plus the boy can play anywhere up front what maked you think he wants to play left wing?
Hes good player but too greedy, where a class player sees the pass and let's it go, it also looks better on the eye
15 Apr 2013 21:10:32
Your not real mate do you look at the stats if not why not
12 Apr 2013 10:26:05
middlesbrough are in talks with kevin davies over a free transfer to the riverside in the summer
Has not impressed me this season but could add valuble experiance to the squad
12 Apr 2013 10:07:57
middlesbrough will target jon taylor of shrewsbury and bristol city winger albert adomah in the summer adomah could cost as little as £1M if bristol city are as expected relegated from the championship taylor would cost around 300-400K
Middlesbrough are also intrested in peterbrough striker dwight gayle however posh have slapped a £5M price tag on the strikers head to ward of intrest so a move for walsall striker Will Grigg has been sounded out
2 free agents have been sounded out by the club and they are Burnley Midfielder Chris Mcann and Wolves Striker Sylvain Ebanks Blake
Nicky Bailey, Keiron Dyer, Steven Mcmanus and marvin emnes will leave the club and they will also listen to offers for striker scott mcdoland.
Ishmael Millers loan deal will not be extended and will return to forrest at the end of the season
Big summer coming up at Middlesbrough football club!
Hasn't Ebanks Blake got a long term injury, broken ankle and ligament damage?
Also heard rumours that we could be in for: paul taylor, nicky maynard and marc-antoine fortune, provided we can get shot of marv and scotty
Out for 5 months be back in September
Downo and all the backroom staff morgan and moxey just get out my club we will end up in league two at this rate. if you don't go or resign bad things will start to happen outside molineux BEWARE
McCann awful, anyone want him? You can have him!
12 Apr 2013 09:32:41
Oxford could give Sheffield United permission to speak to Chris Wilder as early as next Monday. Apparently Alan Hodgkinson and Mickey Lewis to go with him, but Andy Melville not.
12 Apr 2013 10:11:55
Chris Morgan is caretaker manager until the end of the season and will be made manager full time if he is a success. Therefore Blades will not even be considering managerial candidates until the end of the season.
Why wait until then. I'll get the car keys and go and pick him up now! But I doubt Hodgy will be part of the package
Hodgkinson retired a year ago.
Strange since Hodgkinson retired a year ago.
Hodgkinson is retired! We'll chuck Melville in on a Buy one Get one Free offer.
12 Apr 2013 16:40:27
Wilder you are having a laugh. He is a L2/conference manager and that is his limit. If Sheff Utd did get him you will struggle big time.
A lot of wishful thinking by the Wilder out brigade. He ain't going anywhere.
13 apr 2013 21:23:22
wilder and coaching staff must go and major clearout of players or oxford will go down next season think most fans will agree with this statement
12 Apr 2013 03:35:57
Arsenal - Christian Benteke - 15mil
Aston villa - Matthieu Flamini - 6mil
Chelsea - Radamel Falcao - 45mil
Everton - Joleon lescott - free, Aidan Mcgeady - 11mil
Liverpool - Ashley Williams - 12mil
Man cty - Asmir Begovic - 20mil
Man Utd - Luka Modric - 18mil
Newcastle - Pierre-emerick Aubameyang - 13mil
Norwich - Ricky van Wolfswinkle - 8.5mil
Southampton - David Hoilett - 9mil
Stoke City - Andreas Cornelius - 5mil
Swansea - Romelu Lukaku - loan
Tottenham - Leandro Damiao - 20mil
West brom - Adam le Fondre - 3.5mil
West ham - Joey Barton - free
Man utd and chelsea to battle it out for Christiano Ronaldo whether he will want to return to fergie or stick with mourinho.
Flamini will be on a free
Lescott is not on a free
City won't buy Begovic, they have Hart
Hoilett is not worth even close to 9mill
Flamini, s on a free for a start. Rob Walker
Where to start.
Joey Barton will not be accepted back into English football. He knows he is an outcast here and will stay in France.
Southampton won't be buying Hoilett, he will go abroad or to a bigger club.
Why would Asmir Begovic go to Man City when they have Joe Hart? He will never play and they wouldn't want to spend £20 million and high wages on a bench player.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has hinted he will move to Spain, not England. He said in an interview he hates cold and rain and wouldn't want to live somewhere where the weather is that bad. Kinda rules Newcastle and the whole of England out.
Benteke to liverpool
Real Madrid will use Modric + 20mill to Lure gareth Bale From Tottenham
Hoillet is awful and wouldn't get close to the Saints bench
Not going to happen about Benteke. He is on a five year deal. Staying at Villa and Lambert says will be 25mil plus. I am a Villa fan and he is far too good for Liverpool, Spurs or Arsenal. If he leaves will be to PSG, Barca, Real, Manchester United or the Milan Clubs.
Dream on specially at 15mil when Carroll with less prem goals cost 35mil
^^^ Carroll was over priced so you cannot compare with that deal, Spurs and Arsenal are better than PSG and both Milan clubs.
A lot of people knocking hoilett I think he is a class at who hasn't had the opportunity to shine at QPR personally I would love him at stoke
Benteke is worth £25-£30m.
Flamini is indeed a free transfer in the summer, so costs nothing.
Benteke's value will mean he'll stay at Villa for another season to prove he's not a 1 season wonder.
Remy, Jovetic, Falcao etc. are better value than Benteke anyways for the money you'd need to pay.
Huntelaar to Arsenal.
I would agree I made a few mistakes yes flamini will be on a free and yes begovic will go utd or arsenal ahead of city, Lescott will not be a free. But the benteke one if villa go down do you think he will want to play in the championship and I think villa are in need of some cash and I think they would settle for 15mil. I never heard that aubameyang doesn't like cold weather and still think he will go newcastle since france doesn't have perfect weather itself and barton will be accepted back in england I think he will get another chance in the EPL whether he deserves it is another thing. Also Hoilett is worth 9mil he's 23 and has shown he has a lot of ability at blackburn
Dont want Joey Barton at our club hammers not worth the trouble, Will keep Carroll for 15mill he's only 24yrs plenty of football in front of him Bony & Lescott be a top 8 side in 13/14
If Lukaku was going to go on loan anywhere, he would go back to West Brom, not Swansea.
Lescott will go back to everton
West brom ain't in Europe for next year so I think he would rather go too swansea as he wants European football for next year!
What club in their right mind would sign Barton. He's an absolute liability. Some sucker will sign him though.
I think Lukaku will leave us and unfortunately go to Swansea for a crack at European football
West Brom for relegation fodder next season!
Liverpool will not fork out £12 million for Williams in a straight deal, there are rumours that Coates will be offered as a makeweight and that will get short shrift from Swansea.
West brom relegation fodder next season shows you no nothing about football or our club I've heard this for the last 3 years we will allready have a replacement lined up
Wba always have too find and develop top players, we never buy top class, we are a small club really,
West brom not in euro son
12 Apr 2013 01:29:45
Yeovil hotshot Paddy Madden is being courted by a number of teams including; Derby County, Middlesbrough, and Burnley.
I wonder if carlise have a sell on clause for him bet they are kicking themselves if they haven't.
If QPR come down from the premier league they may have to sell due to their financial situation.
Er. what's the above comment got to do with the rumour?
12 Apr 2013 01:28:15
Blackpool manager Paul Ince has set out numerous targets for the summer. The Tangerines boss firmly believes that they will still be a Championship club by the summer;
Martyn Waghorn, Leicester, free
Steve Davies, Bristol City, £350,000
Krystian Pearce, Notts County, £50,000
David Vaughan, Sunderland, £1.5m (only if Phillips or Ince goes)
Jamie Vardy, Leicester, Loan
Aden Flint, Swindon, £300,000
Nick Powell, Manchester Utd, Loan
Good signing but can't see it. We never get anyone good that we want
Aden flint is out of contract end of season
I think you will find that Notts County will release Pearce at the end of the season.
Aden Flint is out of contract at the end of the season so we will happily have 300k for him.
Davies for 350k? more like 2. 35m
Why Vaughan if Ince of Phillips leave? He is a holding midfielder and the other 2 are wingers.
12 Apr 2013 01:20:04
Doncaster are preparing a transfer wish list in preparation for the Championship if they gain promotion;
Martin Paterson, Burnely, free
Richie Wellens, Leicester, free
James Bailey, Derby, £300,000
Gary Madine, Sheff Wed, £350,000
Jon Taylor, Shrewsbury, £250,000
Paul McShane, Hull, free
Stephen Crainey, Blackpool, free
Crains will go up scotland
12 Apr 2013 11:07:30
dnt know if its true but wellens is wanted by simon Grayson
You do realise we aren't overhauling the squad? There's no way the board will spend that amount of money on players which is stupid an personally think the board should find there pockets, supposedly have two board members with 700mil between them and they won't miss a couple of million it's pathetic lacks ambition all I'm asking is to take a calculated risk
Well have hayter
Town interested in re signing Ben herd
Is his contract up
Dont sell mcshane super paul mchane I just don't think you understand that if you sell mcshane super paul mcshane you'll have a f***ing riot on ye hands
Herds contract is up
Wouldnt even able to pay mcshane wages
City to sign Sako from Wolves, if promoted his agent is touting him round Cardiff hull and palace. has clause where he can go for 3 million wolves don't want to keep him.
Keep dreaming sunshine McShane is going nowhere.
