Doncaster Rovers News

Richard O'kelly is up for the sack after the accrington game on tuesday night. . . he was the one who gave the side the tactics and picked the team. Sean had nothing to do with it.

In other news stock has been linked with a move to newcastle and being a donny fan i don't think hes worth it. rumoured to be around 3 million. not worth it.

donny are going to sign keogh from wolves as they have agreed a fee just need personal terms.(0)(3)

Have some info on Manchester United:

Sir Alex Ferguson is still keen on recruiting a midfielder despite the signing of Bebe.
I have been informed that Ozil is still his first choice target but he is convinced a deal has already been done for him to go to one of the spanish sides. As a result of this he has put the "feelers" out regarding the availability & price for Raul Meireles from FC Porto, Stephen Ireland from Manchester City & Lassana Diarra of Real Madrid. Sir Alex has already made enquiries & spoke reps of Steven Defour & Alex Witsel from Standard Liege & Soritis Ninis (Panathinaikos) He will wait & see what develops with the Ozil situation before following anything else up.
United's latest recruit "Bebe" will play a part in the first team this coming season in a similar way Gabriel Obertan did last season – bits & bobs with a few reserve team appearences here & there too.

Mario Balotelli & James Milner will 100% be at Manchester City before September 1st.

Many Thanks

I find it quite funny all these people thinking ozil is utd bound for sure. Chelsea hav first refusal on the bloke as they went for him a few yrs ago before he went to bremen, this news came out just after the world cup so sorry if Chelsea go in for him he is coming to the bridge. Chelsea to sign, ramires by end of 2mora as work permit has been agreed today. Plus neymar too before the transfer window closes.

Ben Arfa is not comin to Newcastle Utd, like i have said a number of times. Now L'OM's president has now come out and said he aint coming.

Marseille president Jean–Claude Dassier claims Hatem Ben Arfa will not be signing for Premier League side Newcastle.
But Dassier insists the midfielder will remain with L'OM, and says Ben Arfa is an important part of the squad.

He said: "The Newcastle offer does not exist. Hatem Ben Arfa is staying at Marseille.

"There is no serious and solid offer from Newcastle at the moment. Hatem is part of the workforce and will remain so."

ToonArmySoldier

If you watch the interview you can tell by the guys body language that he is lying, only a few days ago this same man said a deal had been agreed yet hes been greedy and tried to get more money out of the deal, Ben Arfa has told him to get the deal done and in the mean time he won't turn up for training or any matchs and will never play for the club again, this will force marseille to send him out on loan to Newcastle they will be forced to go along with the previous offer of £700.000 and allow him to leave, as they have agreed terms with a unknown striker but can't sign him untill arfa is off the wage bill. Wait and see, He will be a newcastle player by next week, Hes currently in England, Marseille are angry that hes walked out and are trying to deny the fact he wants to go to Newcastle when the player himself said last night the deal has been delayed but will still go through, Once marseille accept he wants to go they will be forced to give into his wishes. the manager has fell out with him now the president. he is leaving believe me.(3)(3)

jelavic will be in glasgow tommorow nite to finalize the deal. also gattuso deal will be done by next week, he always said he would love to finish his carrer in glasgow with the mighty rangers. rangers have 10million to spend in markets, expect eagles to come back to the table on the deal. can't wait to see beatty he wil score goals for fun for us, bring it on. beatty miles better than hooper or fortune any day of the week(9)(10)

 

 12 Aug 2010 23:40:02
Hatem Ben Arfa is hopeing to finalise his move to Newcastle United by Sunday so he can play against Man Utd, although it may not go through untill Thursday at the latest, Marseille have said the player is staying although Ben arfa has walked out and is currently back in England where he wants to play for Newcastle, Newcastle have had talks with Ben arfa and his agent, the offer of £700,000 was passed on to marseille club officials and was accepted although marseille pulled out on Monday wanting more money out of the deal something around £950.000 How ever Newcastle after a meeting last night refused to meet that price after agreeing a deal and this has angered the club not only that but their player ben arfa walking out saying he'll never play again . This is to push the move through as ben arfa wants to join Newcastle, Expect it to happen although he'll need to cut his attitude when he does come to Newcastle.(4)(5)

 

 12 Aug 2010 23:26:46
I'm a Leicester fan and have heard that DJ Campbell has had a massive bust up with the city team, the city players don't like his greedy approach to football and want him out but Paulo Sousa is unwilling to sell him, Blackpool if u want him now is the time to put in a decent bid because now is the best oppurtunity for u to get him
if he does leave Leicester will go all out to buy Jason Scotland from Wigan with a £2.5mil offer rising to £3mil, Wigan would prefer to sell Scotland to Leicester rather than Ipswich because they wouldn't make a loss(6)(5)

James Beattie was up at Ibrox and murry park today in a deal worth 1.5 million and the gers are in talks with pompy over Tommy Smith but don't think that we are going meet the evaluation of the club as we are only thought to offering about 900 thousand.

Marseille president Jean–Claude Dassier claims Hatem Ben Arfa will not be signing for Newcastle.(21)(10)

 

 12 Aug 2010 22:20:28
Really starting to get the feeling that things are bad at Ibrox. I feel that the Smith, Beattie and Jelavic deal won't happen and that they are all just smoke screens to try and make me an my fellow fans happy or to think we are trying to sign players. I don't think that we will sign any one unless it is a loan deal. My reason for Beattie not joining is he is currently on 35k a week and rangers can offer 15K at the most. i am totally gutted the club seems to be in this state and gutted we can't even sign Jelavic, who I believe would be an incredible signing.
Benny bear

Benny the tim more like. how do you know rangers can only offer 15k per week. do you really think they don't have an idea as to the players demands before asking him to fly to glasgow.

i posted on here last week that walter had more than the 5m that keeps getting mentioned in his kitty and was rubbished, well. new contracts for Mculloch, wier, broadfoot, fleck. £4.2m on the table for jelavic, £1.5m bid accepted for beattie, money offered(unknown amount)for tommy smith. Georgie Welcome still on trial so he must at least be a possibility why keep him there if theres no money to buy him. The young arsenal boy looks likely on loan, And Mcoist has been in america looking at another possible targets.(11)(13)

I have just heard rangers have also made an enquiry about bellamy, as a gers fan i hope not as this would surely mean the collapse of the jelavic deal.(13)(31)

 

 12 Aug 2010 22:18:32
I was on monday or tuesday can't mind which day and posted celtic were talking to both mcfadden and bellamy. source being a m8 who works in parkhead. the latter coming to fruition today. the bellamy deal will hinge more or less on the players decision as man city won't stand in the way. as for mcfadden, will be dependent on the mcgeady deal going through which is as good as done watch this space.

To the guy that said man utd have bid for meireles.

i have also heard about this as Sir alex wants a midfielder who can really take the game by the scruff of the neck (essentially a holding midfielder) but it was rejected. if utd follow up there interest n get the player then they will wait til next summer for Ozil n try n get him for free.
however if we do not get meireles then we will try for ozil this summer n definitely get him as real, barca n chelsea will also wait for him next year

Regarding the managerial vacancy at Aston Villa, we all know that many names have been touted since MON's departure. Possible replacements that Randy Lerner is eying are:
Bob Bradely
Sven Goran – Eriksson
Alan Curbishley
Gareth Southgate
Giovanni Trappatoni ( but after his op he is no longer wanted )
Didier Deschamps
Frank Rijkaard

The top 4 names are reasonable, but I can't see someone like Rijkaard coming to England, let alone not one of the 'Big 4'.

"After Sulejmani's move has been cancelled due to not gaining a work permit, West Ham will make a bid for Aston Villa strike duo John Carew and Nathan Delfuenso. Avram Grant sees Carew as an ideal replacement if Carton Cole does leave the club, and a deal could be worth around 6 – 9 million. Regarding Delfuenso, Freddie Sears could be involved within the deal as MON was a fan of the youngster and Randy Lerner may be willing to do a deal with the Hammers"

So wait. . Randy Lerner gets MON to walk out so he doesn't have to pay compensation, yet he's going to get a player MON wanted. . The Fonz nor Carew are being sold. . West Ham are a small club who will face and probably be relegated, why would these players in which Carew could be playing CL with multiple clubs if he wanted and the Fonz who is a bornified (my word) Aston Villa fan who will probably NEVER leave Villa?(2)(17)

Also, West Ham will make a shock move to try and bring Bellamy back to Upton Park on an initial 6 – month loan from MCFC. On other news, Ozil will sign for MUFC in the next 48 hours on a four – year deal for around £9m, rising to £12.5m over the first two years of his contract. With Kaka injured for the next 4 months, Rafael Van der Vaart will not be leaving the Bernabeu anytime soon, but a move next summer may be welcomed by Jose.

 12 Aug 2010 19:33:35
From what I've seen and heard this is what I think will be happening in the next few weeks regarding Celtic. In will be Bellamy to replace Samaras, McCormack to replace McGeady, Kelvin Wilson for defence, a golkeeper, either Speroni or Westwood depending on value for money, obviously Westwood would cost more but will have resale value. I believe also that Celtic are keeping tabs on two Mexican players, I believe this to be Vela from Arsenal and Salcido from PSV. A few players will also leave, the players mentioned above plus Hinkel, Wilson, Rasmussen, Hutchison and O'dea.(44)(41)

players that sousa has his eye on with the new financial backing:
Peter Whittingham (Cardiff)

Ashley Williams (Swansea)
Nicky Maynard (Bristol City)
Martyn Waghorn (Sunderland)
Akos Buzsaky (QPR)
Robert Koren (Free Agent)
Jason Roberts (Free Agent)
Michael Chopra (Cardiff)
Sean St Ledger (Preston)
Obviousely not all of these will sign, Sousa is merely thinking about signing them"

 12 Aug 2010 19:36:57
Liverpool have "advised" Maynor Figueroa to ask for transfer to force a deal through. Negotiations are due to start again next week, the fee was the stumbling block last time. Hodgson is very interested in Charles N'Zogbia as well. He may try to tie up a double deal for around £15 million pounds.
I also know that Ryan Babel has been targeted by former club Ajax. Although their valuation falls way short of "Mr Purslow's."

Quote from Mark Schwarzer himself:

"I need it to happen" (move to Arsenal)

"I've had couple of chats with Mark Hughes. It's delicately poised. Who wouldn't be keen to go to Arsenal"

So it's very likely that Arsenal is going to sign Schwarzer.

Wenger will also sign a center back, but no big name. It could be Spahic, but I've heard that it's someone from Bundesleague, but not Tasci, Subotic or Mertesacker(29)(6)

On the Jelavic deal to Rangers i love how when a news source says we are closing in on him celtic fans response is "Its paper talk"
When someone says the deal is looking unlikely the celtic fans take it as gospel.

Anyone else noticing the flawed logic here?
Heres my take on the deal based on everything I've read and heard set out simply.

1– Smith expresses interest and enters negotiations.
2– Jelavic publicly states he would like the transfer to take place
3– Rapid hear about other interests AND want Jelavic to take part in their next league games.
4– Rangers iron out a fee with rapid
5– Jelavic and Rapid enter a dispute over a loyalty fee and possibly (unreliable source) payments to be made to Jelavic's old club
6– This is where we currently stand i have heard Rangers havea greed to pay part of this extra fee but am unsure on the outcome of this.

Overall i can never remember a prospective transfer get so much media attention and drag on for so without the club getting there man so i predict we will see him in light blue this season.

Didn't the player also state he would use Rangers as a stepping stone to the EPL, so if an EPL team came in for him the now surely it would make sense for him to go straight there and snub Rangers, no? Or will you use the same alledged flawed logic also and ignore that part of the saga?(27)(12)

"Jelavic deal could be off after rangers refused to pay a percentage of a loyalty bonus and refuse to increase basic pay by 10k per week."

Not true the only reason Jelavic is not a Rangers player yet is issues between himself and Rapid Vienna. From Rangers end the deal is tied up, the only possible further involvement from our end is if Rapid ask us to cough up some of the money involved in the dispute between themselves and Jelavic.

Rapid Vienna are stalling this deal as much as possible because for club and country Jelavic has scored 9 in his last 4 in his last 3 games, the club are hoping this draws interest from the EPL however (and god knows why not) it hasn't yet. Once Rapid give up on this Jelavic will become a Rangers player.(25)(15)

BIRMINGHAM CITY IN's;
. . . .None.

OUTS;
. . .Alex McLeish. I repeat, Alex Mcleish.

Big Eck is refusing to sign a new contract as it is becoming clear the powers that be at the club are incapable of conducting player transfer negotiations and there is actually very little money available anyway. This will see him walk away like MON down the road or even forced out, back me up EDITOR!. .

As a Blues fan, Eck leaving would be the worst possible outcome for us, he is a fabulous manager. I believe the players he has now are more than capable of having as good a season as last year regardless, if not better for the experience. They are also a very tight–knit, superbly gelled outfit. Limited but Tough. We Blues fans don't suffer big–time Charlies anyway, only 100%ers will do even if they're site.

Don't shoot the messenger but there's big word that Craig Bellamy is seriously interesting sir Alex Ferguson,
and there's serious rumours, even amongst sky sports and Old Trafford (see for yourself if you don't believe me), that he is very tempted to make a bid

Had i read this yesterday i wouldve said it wouldn't be a bad move. However after signing Bebe yesterday i don't see this one. Bellamy is a good player but he has lost a yard of pace and we have adequate striking options. Hernandez is very exciting and David Gill says Bebe will spend the first season in and around the first team squad. So Bellamy is really a none starter. He needs to focus on getting Ozil.(21)(36)

All right open forum time: Ferguson knows he needs a spark in midfield. Much speculation has been that this will be Mesut Ozil. If Ferguson has the funds to make a punt on a raw prospect like Bebe, my reasoning is that he must have the money for ozil's reported fee (between 10 and 15 million). Do the editor and the forum believe this mean the Ozil hunt is still on? Bebe will not play first–team football for United for some time, and unless Cleverly looks a better prospect than Ozil I'd have to think Ferguson isn't done yet in the transfer market. Thoughts?

Utd already have the best attacking midfielder in Premier League . . . Wayne Rooney. Why is Fergie buying another striker ? Think about it. The new Scholes is already there.

To the person who said that. Rooney played his best football in the box last year. The proof was in the all those goals he scores last year and he will get more this year because he had to adapt to the way he played last year. We still need a Attacking Midfielder to link up with Rooney more but if one is not found we still have Berbatov when he is on to link the play up and we can push Fletcher and Anderson further up the pitch if needed. Also the new signing is reported to play there.

Lot happening at Liverpool Javier Mascherano will move to Barcelona later this week for £23m, Diego Cavalieri is on his way back to Palmerais for a cut price fee of just £1.5m. Sunderland have made an £8m bid for Ryan Babel. It looks as though Insua is finally going to move to Genoa for a fee of £4.5m. Christian Puolsen has signed for a fee in the region of £4.5m while Liverpool have also agreed a fee of £2m to bring in Brad Jones.Roy is been given the go–ahead to sign Maynor Figueroa for £5m.Roy is trying to raise a further £5m by selling the likes of Daniel Ayala, Damien Plessis, Nabil El Zhar and Chrisztian Nemeth to fund two huge moves which will cost Liverpool in the region of £30m, an £18m move for Aston Villa's Ashley Young and a £12m move for West Ham's Carlton Cole but having sold Benayoun£5.5m, San Jose£2.7m, Riera£4.4m, Cavalieri£1.5m, Insua£4.5m, Mascherano£23m, Babel£8m + around £5m from the youngsters above Liverpool will still be exiting the transfer window with a profit which is pretty impressive considering the difference but you could argue that already, with Liverpool only having spent £7m and added the likes of Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Christian Poulsen, Danny Wilson and Jonjo Shelvey.(29)(20)

Very entertaining to read some of these international "rumors", but there's a lot more to it than some "mate" or a "groundskeeper we know" or even the papers, who just about invent 80% of what they're writing.
Some minor points though: L.Fabiano will very likely end up in Marseille, since Milan (his first choice) did not show its committment; Can't see Spurs going after him either (too expensive, no negotiations sofar); Personally I don't see what the fuss is about; he's not even that good.
Forlan has expressedly said he does not want to return to England; He's happy where he is, has about 3–4 good years left, and doesn't want to move.
Ibra may move to Chelsea, as Roman is a big fan, but I can't see that happen unless they offload Anelka, Drogba or someone else; Ibra is good for a swap, like with the Eto'o deal, but who does Barca need from Chelsea? Not very likely therefore.
Aguero has priced himself out of pretty much every club (in terms of wage demands), except for City, Chelsea and Madrid; They don't need him, so why buy him? Aguero to Liverpool, no matter how much I'd like to see it, is a myth.
Mertesacker stays put; Ozil is very likely to stay put for at least this first transfer window; See, there's another one that "everybody wants"; He's 21, can wait till January or next summer, and get a lot better than he is now; Werder Bremen knows he'll be worth more in the January window, and he'd be wasting away on the bench of Madrid or Barca at this time; Even Man U may opt for veterans more often than for another young prospect starter.
The EPL would ultimately be the best move for Ozil, but Wenger, SAF and Ancelotti are biding their time; the focus may be on younger players that are good long term investments, but they have little inmediate impact; The top EPL clubs are comfortable with what they have and will not break the bank for anybody, as instructed by ownership.
Balotelli to City will happen soon, so will Mascherano to "someplace warmer", but beyond that I don't see any big moves.

MANCHESTER UNITED

SAF has done his work in the transfer market. No more transfers will be done during this window. I think fergie is content and quietly optimistic about the upcoming season.

For some reason Fergie seems to be a little unsure about Ozil and if Utd were to buy him then I can only see it happening in Jan after Fergie has had more time to assess the younger players promoted and aslo see how the season is panning out.

Mr Editor – am I right?

WE WANT OUR TROPHY BACK. No 19. {editor's note – that is my belief too, but it is only a belief, nobody but Fergie will know for sure.}

Whilst the coments seem to make sense, this is certainly not the case. Utd have tracked Ozil for many years and first looked at him when he was at Schalke, but he wanted to stay in Germany. Utd have been scouting him for years and know everything that they need to about the guy.

On the Jelavic deal to Rangers i love how when a news source says we are closing in on him celtic fans response is "Its paper talk"
When someone says the deal is looking unlikely the celtic fans take it as gospel.

Anyone else noticing the flawed logic here?
Heres my take on the deal based on everything I've read and heard set out simply.

1– Smith expresses interest and enters negotiations.
2– Jelavic publicly states he would like the transfer to take place
3– Rapid hear about other interests AND want Jelavic to take part in their next league games.
4– Rangers iron out a fee with rapid
5– Jelavic and Rapid enter a dispute over a loyalty fee and possibly (unreliable source) payments to be made to Jelavic's old club
6– This is where we currently stand i have heard Rangers havea greed to pay part of this extra fee but am unsure on the outcome of this.

Overall i can never remember a prospective transfer get so much media attention and drag on for so without the club getting there man so i predict we will see him in light blue this season.(12)(14)

Bebe would be like welbeck and manucho last season. Expect him to be loaned out come January.


As much as i would like him to, Mesut Ozil would not sign for man utd as fergie has scholes, carrick, flecther, anderson and not forgetting giggs, who has playing in the centre of the park a few times already.

Is it just me or is chicharito's style of play similar to ex–red carlos tevez?

To all cardiff fans!

Mccormack is not going anywhere he is staying. Although roy keane is trying to buy mccormack and is using Jon Stead as part of the deal. And Bellamy has said he would love to sign for cardiff as he is then closer to his family and is willing to drop his wages to do so. Cardiff are eyeing up a £4m deal for the welsh international. And Man City are ready to accept.(11)(24)

An update for you that Ben Arfa showed up at the training ground in Marseille late this afternoon accompanied by his lawyer and his agent. My understanding is that he confirmed that he would like to leave the club. It is not clear where he is going – the options seem to be Newcastle, Werder Bremen or Hoffenheim.

I Don't think wenger is still interested in a goalkeeper, Wenger is a manager who likes to keep things ungerground
but it is human psychology 101, "the more u try to hide the more you reveal"
e.g After Celtic's Match Wenger reply to an interview question(lifted 4rm arsenal.com)
. . . . . . . . . . . Question. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
On whether the players who played in midfield have changed his thinking ahead of the new season. .
. . . . . . . . . . . Answer. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
"A little bit because at the start of the season I was not convinced that Wilshere and Frimpong could be central midfielders, defensively. There is a little bit more competition than we expected there to be. We were considering even maybe going on the market for a midfielder. We will not do that now."
. . . . . . . . . . Question. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
On if he is still in the market for a centre back. .
. . . . . . . . . . Answer. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
"We still need a centre half of course. We are still short number wise. Just number wise. [We need] at least one."

Judging by his reply we are not signing a midfielder(defensive) and he said we are not replacing "Eduardo", so no striker but he says:we need not want a centre back and he was quick to add number wise, meaning we are definitely getting a defender(number wise i say– spahic or subotic) but montepillar claim spahic is worth three times more than koscienly. if you recall this statement came after the player himself claim arsenal were in negotiation, what it means is that arsene wanted him but they wanted more than he was ready to pay.
I also bliv that wenger wants Schwarzer but fulham wouldn't sell and he wants a keeper to solve the problem short term as he is confident fabianski has what it takes to be NO 1. to back this claim:
. . . . . . . .wenger b4 legia's game. . . . . . . . . . . .
"Still players fight for their place, " he said. "Tomorrow Fabianski has another opportunity to show that he can play No 1.

"Wojciech is a goalkeeper of huge quality. At the moment we want to play for the title so I believe he needs some more experience to compete directly for the first goalkeeper position.

"But it depends a little bit. We have four goalkeepers, one of them will go out on loan, three have to stay so we do not know yet who will go out."
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ,
judging by this comment Wojciech Szczesny will most definitely go on loan. fabianski is wenger's choice for the NO 1 Spot this season(but i hope after the game he changed his mind) cos he said he has "another" oppurtunity to show he can play NO 1 and not to show he can be a top goalkeeper.
. . . . . . . . . .Conclusion. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Wenger will buy a defender, and may be Schwarzer(if available) if he signs Schwarzer then almunia or fabianski will be sold not both. cos if Schwarzer injures one of them will be needed as szczesny is not experienced enough.(22)(11)

Forest News
Wittingham and Pratley are dead forget them we don't need them we've got Cohen and Anderson not to mention Majewski who all play a fantastic role in attacking midfield positions the crucial role that needs to be filled is goal scorer. We don't have one. 15 goals from Earnie last year not good enough we need 20– 30. We have no out and out goal scorer and too many wasted chances. A poacher like van nistleroy (spelling) was for Man utd would be nice.(23)(16)

Real Madrid won't be signing no one else for the first team after Carvalho, because in the spanish league's, teams are only allowed to register 25 squad numbers. There are currently 24 squad numbers taken; and now Carvalho's signed there is bound to be another taken. So that's 25 squad numbers. They can sign key players like Ozil, A.Cole etc. but they won't be able to play unless they are given a squad number; So in theory they will have to remove a player from their squad number before the new signing can play. Another thing could be that they sell off fringe players such as M.Diarra, Drenthe and Van Der Vaart, which would leave space for new signings to enter the fray. But Real Madrid CAN still sign new players which won't mind not being in the first team such as youngsters. Hope this clarifies my reasons rejecting players linked with the Bernabeu.(30)(18)

Hello, i don't want to disclose my source as it could cause a bit of an upset however the following is true as far as i know.

There are at least 6 players who would be considered "big name players" at top 10 clubs who will not be picked in there clubs 25 man squad for one reason or another and will not be content to play reserve football.

As the other EPL sides will have to name there 25 man squads at the same time this causes them a problem as a transfer is unlikely to another EPL side.

Expect a few of these players to be heaed up nort h to Rangers or Celtic (possibly 1 year loan deals or possibly permanent) as this is the only move that offers anything close to the same level of football without alot of upheavel to another country. Some of them may return to there home nation or retire from football.

Both Rangers and Celtic spotted this opportunity earlier in the year and that is the reason they have both (particularly Rangers but Celtic haven't made a big signing yet) been reasonably quiet in the transfer market up until this point.(31)(11)

SAF has done his work in the transfer market. No more transfers will be done during this window. I think fergie is content and quietly optimistic about the upcoming season.

For some reason Fergie seems to be a little unsure about Ozil and if Utd were to buy him then I can only see it happening in Jan after Fergie has had more time to assess the younger players promoted and aslo see how the season is panning out.

To all those Celtic Fans and their delusions that Craig Bellamy is joining them, FORGET IT he has already stated he wants to be near his family who live in Cardiff! There is no way he would take a move further away already publicly stated this! His ambition is to move to Cardiff City but that would be a miracle move although he has also said he would take a drop in wages for this to happen. He will go to a West London club (2 hours away from Cardiff) and deals already tabled for him.

Dai Bish


Bellamy is 1/6 on to sign for Celtic on skybet and Celtic are in talks with Man City over loan move (sourse ssn)
Delusions I don't think so

Celtic are in talks its just talks mate! Bellamy has got to agree personal terms and from the interview he has given he wants to be near family who live in Cardiff! as for the betting the odds would be slashed as soon as a club has stated they are talking to another club. For me I think it will be Fulham or Spurs that he will go to not Celtic

the reason craig bellamy will notg go to fulham or spurs is that man city don't want him tok go to a england club as they don't want to feed the oppisition he loves celtic why wouldn't he return(22)(21)

Just to set the record straight, Walter Smith has confirmed the exact situations of the three players we are trying to sign.

Negotiations are well down the line for James Beattie and Tommy Smith, and the gaffer is hopeful both will be signed and in his squad for the SPL opener on Saturday.
He also says neither of these deals affect the move for Jelavic, and while admitting there has been more complications to this transfer than they had planned, he remains fairly confident of landing the Croatian striker before Saturday, although it's doubtful he would make the squad due to a slight knock he picked up last weekend.

Jay Simpson will NOT be signing for Leeds United as whispers from the boardroom aftermath confirm that wages could not be agreed between the two parties with JS wanting 15k p/week and Bates only offering 9k p/week + goals bonuses.

More gossip from around Graysons office is that due to this, he is looking to snap up Jason Scotland as fast as he can (deal looking to be concluded by tonight if SG has his way).

Plus, Becchio is NOT going to Celtic. Leeds have had NO approach plus the scots are looking to sign Craig Bellamy on loan from Man City.(19)(17)

Charles N'zogbia has probably been tapped up. 'Arry and Joe Jordan watched the Italy – Ivory Coast game and the Norway – France game. The blogs and press say Remy is the target, but he's right footed and more of a forward than a striker. I don't think Spurs are after him. N'zogbia is more versatile, is left sided and is quick. If Spurs know Bellamy won't come, it makes more sense to see Charlie boy as the target. MikeG

MLG {editor's note – as far as I can find out the problem is between Jelavic and his current club. They owe him a 'loyalty' payment but don't want to pay it all, usually these things end up getting sorted out with the buying club paying a percentage of it.}(29)(10)

The reason why its been so quiet on transfer front for spurs is that they are working on 2 massive deals for fabiano AND forlan. If both come off then keane and pavlyuchenko are away. Keane will go to Villa and Pav has a few options including Liverpool.
There are back up deals incase but not as exciting im afraid. Remy is a last resort. Richards was just about signed but man city pulled plug. Gallas is a possibility if we don't get hangelaand or cahill (bolton) in. Parker or Ireland are still targets also but need to find a buyer for Jenas, Hutton, Bentley and Ohara 1st. As for Bellamy, City will not sell him to spurs. .he is hanging on for the move though and will risk being left in no mans land by the end of the window.

RANGERS LATEST

Just to set the record straight, Walter Smith has confirmed the exact situations of the three players we are trying to sign.

Negotiations are well down the line for James Beattie and Tommy Smith, and the gaffer is hopeful both will be signed and in his squad for the SPL opener on Saturday.
He also says neither of these deals affect the move for Jelavic, and while admitting there has been more complications to this transfer than they had planned, he remains fairly confident of landing the Croatian striker before Saturday, although it's doubtful he would make the squad due to a slight knock he picked up last weekend.

That is it for now guys.

"12 Aug 2010 09:16:31
I have heard that allowing Julian Bennett to go to Crystal Palace is a big part of a plan. When we(Forest) allowed him to go it was on the condition we have a chance to speak to Ambrose in January if the right money is being offered to Palace. Bennett may be used in part of a swap deal although i hope not as he is class and just needs to get over his injury or we will just pay money for Ambrose. So this loan is perfect for Forest. . We get our former player of the season back fully fit and we get to try and lure Ambrose to the City Ground. Come on Jules will surely be able to persuade him to come.
Also this is only my opinion but i think we will use the loan period till January then if we are going strong i think we won't make the same mistake twice and we will strengthen significantly is January either signing the players we have on loan from prem clubs or making a few class signings.
Oh 1 more thing lets hope WBA come down and show shotey he made the wrong choice."

The reason Bennett came to Palace is simple, you got a Chelsea kid on loan and needed to offset the wages.

Are you thick as s te or what. Bennetts come to you because he needed to go out to a s te team to gain some match fitness after being out for 14 months before he can help Forest with their promotion push. We don't need to balance our books. We are 1 of very few clubs who have money problems at the moment. We havent strengthened due to the fact we have an aquasition panel in place who are crap but at the end of the day it is them who are keeping us from being in debt. Get your facts right you TURD!

From a reliable source:

The signing of bebe was a sign of 2 things 1)beat real madrid to his signiture 2)Took the heat of possible ozil swoop, making is a bit more unpredictable considering united have spent 25 million and it is well documented about their financial troubles. But the final word on ozil will be out by monday's match against newcastle.(28)(13)

 

 12 Aug 2010 12:53:12
Obviously like normal Sir Fergie has made a mug out of everyone trying to guess the ins and outs of Old Trafford, Ozil might very well sign as Bebe is an out and out striker Source(UNITEDS WEBSITE), We still need a playmaker but nothing suprises me anymore!

Next Villa manager is going to be Kevin MacDonald? Looking through the rubbish the media are writing and probable facts this is how I conclude this will happen

Jol and Hughes– Compensation clauses too expensive
Erickson– Wages way to high, needs money, going back to Ivory Coast.
Curbishley / Southgate– Villa fans backlash would be expected.
Klinnsmen– Can anyone believe he would come to the Villa.
This leaves Bradley and MacDonald, head to head MacDonald leads the way, knows the Villa set up, knows the players inside out, been coaching them through the summer, got players respect already. Lerner always keen to promote from within (see Paul Faulkner started at some level at MBNA and then progressed). He has already restructured the coaching staff from top to bottom. What do you think Ed? {editor's note – I do think it is between him and Bradley, but I don't know enough about Lerner to make any more than a guess at which of them he would choose. But I did read somewhere that MacDonald doesn't want the job, I don't know how true that is though, it could be journalistic nonsense to stir up the betting on a new manager as it was on Sky Sports.}(5)(9)

To the guy who wrote this


To all those Celtic Fans and their delusions that Craig Bellamy is joining them, FORGET IT he has already stated he wants to be near his family who live in Cardiff! There is no way he would take a move further away already publicly stated this! His ambition is to move to Cardiff City but that would be a miracle move although he has also said he would take a drop in wages for this to happen. He will go to a West London club (2 hours away from Cardiff) and deals already tabled for him.

Dai Bish


Bellamy is 1/6 on to sign for Celtic on skybet and Celtic are in talks with Man City over loan move (sourse ssn)
Delusions I don't think so

Celtic are in talks its just talks mate! Bellamy has got to agree personal terms and from the interview he has given he wants to be near family who live in Cardiff! as for the betting the odds would be slashed as soon as a club has stated they are talking to another club. For me I think it will be Fulham or Spurs that he will go to not Celtic(10)(21)

Walter Smith hopes to conclude the signings of James Beattie and Tommy Smith before Saturday's SPL opener with Kilmarnock at Ibrox.

The Rangers manager says he has not totally given up on his pursuit of Rapid Vienna striker Nikica Jelavic but that deal appears to be all but dead unless the player lowers his financial demands.
Rangers have tabled a transfer package of close to £4million for the 24–year–old, with a £16,000 a week wage offer, but he is sue a slice of any sale and senior sources at Ibrox, privately, have all but given up hope of his arrival unless there is a change in stance on his behalf.

Smith explained: "As for Jelavic, I admit that one is looking more doubtful as there are complications there that we had not foreseen.

"Things have not gone smoothly but we have by no means given up on bringing him to the club."SOURCE– GLASGOW EVENING TIMES 12/08/10

There are 4 teams that want Mesut Ozil ( chelsea, utd, barca and real) so they have all got a 25% chance they can all afford his transfer fee and his wages. but when it comes down to it Utd have the best track record in developing youngsters.
barca don't need him they need a def mid and fabregas will be there next here. guardiola is not too keen but the board are.
real have just signed canales the hottest youngster in spain which leaves them with kaka, canales, ronaldo, van der vat, di maria who are vying for two roles in the system jose plays
chelsea need two mid and 1 def players ramires is on his way and ozil intrests them
united keep on being linked but have not shown their hand yet fergie has not admitted or denied it, that's the way utd work in the transfer market, the just signed bebe (prospect) so there is money to spend, everyone keeps on saying ozil should be signed to replace scholes (two different players) realistically he will more suited to replacing giggs. Bremen will accept all the bids from this four clubs an ultimately it would be down to the player to take his pick
he wants to play football and he will probably get more game time in at chelsea or utd.

my money is on utd seem to be the only team with long term plans in hand the three players they have signed are ( 19, 20, 23) so its up these the clubs to sell the future to ozil and it seems utd are already ahead of most.

I've been of the opinion that Chelsea will deffo sign a new CB to replace Carvalho; now im not sure!

It has nothing to do with financial problems or a lack willingness to spend. .Chelsea have said over and over the money is there if needed. The fact is Bosingwa is back from injury very soon and Ferreira has stayed at the club as the second RB; that leaves Terry, Alex and Ivanovic as the main first team CB's with Brouma and Hutchinson the youth players waiting to come through. Spending 25mil – 30mil on a new CB (quoted price for David Luiz) doesn't make sense.

I think once the long and drawn out signing of Ramires is completed one more will deffo come in; this is what the club have stated (two new players). I think a replacement for Deco will be signed; due to the unique way Chelsea Football Club operate the Neymar deal is going to be very hard to pull off without paying the kids buy out clause. Who does that leave. . . . .Ozil?

Ed; do you have any ideas? {editor's note – I don't mate, Chelsea tend to do a lot of their transfer business openly, so normally everyone knows who they are signing. Because of that I have never had to look for a contact of any kind who knows the club. Judging by the way they moved for Neymar, that hasn't changed, so I think we are likely to find out who they are after as soon as they move for him.}(16)(19)

Some rumours (stress RUMOURS).

Santa Cruz or Bellamy to Fulham. Hughes loves the pair of them – problem is that RSC plays (sometimes) in the position of Zamora. RSC is however Hughes's preferred option. (Make sure the Bupa insurance is up to date!). It will however be Bellamy who goes

Ireland to Villa was almost a done deal – then MON scarpered. Spurs is on the cards now but again Mancini is wary for the Spurs threat. Still think that the Chav King will go to Villa. Milner is just waiting to happen.

Onouha has already gone on loan to Sunderland – hes a good lad and player – will do well

Jo to West Ham – seems to have found his scoring boots – just waiting for Cole to go to Liverpool
Balotelli – by Friday.

Robinho is going nowhere. We have cut the strikers to 5 and will be playing a rotation system –with RSC always injured its effectively 4!

City 25 PL squad
Hart, Given, Taylor (3)
Kolarov, Boatang, K Toure, Richards, Lescott, Bridge, Zabaleta, Boyata (8)

RANGERS LATEST

Just to set the record straight, Walter Smith has confirmed the exact situations of the three players we are trying to sign.

Negotiations are well down the line for James Beattie and Tommy Smith, and the gaffer is hopeful both will be signed and in his squad for the SPL opener on Saturday.
He also says neither of these deals affect the move for Jelavic, and while admitting there has been more complications to this transfer than they had planned, he remains fairly confident of landing the Croatian striker before Saturday, although it's doubtful he would make the squad due to a slight knock he picked up last weekend.

That is it for now guys.

To the guy who wrote this


To all those Celtic Fans and their delusions that Craig Bellamy is joining them, FORGET IT he has already stated he wants to be near his family who live in Cardiff! There is no way he would take a move further away already publicly stated this! His ambition is to move to Cardiff City but that would be a miracle move although he has also said he would take a drop in wages for this to happen. He will go to a West London club (2 hours away from Cardiff) and deals already tabled for him.

Dai Bish


Bellamy is 1/6 on to sign for Celtic on skybet and Celtic are in talks with Man City over loan move (sourse ssn)

I feel really sorry for Forest fans, month telling everyone they had signed Whittingham, Partley, Shorey etc and nothing. No Money, No new Players, No hopes. Now they have started dreams again.

"12 Aug 2010 09:16:31
I have heard that allowing Julian Bennett to go to Crystal Palace is a big part of a plan. When we(Forest) allowed him to go it was on the condition we have a chance to speak to Ambrose in January if the right money is being offered to Palace. Bennett may be used in part of a swap deal although i hope not as he is class and just needs to get over his injury or we will just pay money for Ambrose. So this loan is perfect for Forest. . We get our former player of the season back fully fit and we get to try and lure Ambrose to the City Ground. Come on Jules will surely be able to persuade him to come.
Also this is only my opinion but i think we will use the loan period till January then if we are going strong i think we won't make the same mistake twice and we will strengthen significantly is January either signing the players we have on loan from prem clubs or making a few class signings.
Oh 1 more thing lets hope WBA come down and show shotey he made the wrong choice."

The reason Bennett came to Palace is simple, you got a Chelsea kid on loan and needed to offset the wages.(4)(25)

To the guy who wrote that YEP article didn't mention Jay Simpson, well see below a direct extract –

"United have been linked with another Premier League player in Jay Simpson but it is understood that the Arsenal striker's wage demands have hindered a deal."

I didn't post the original mention of this, but if you had read the article then you would have seen this, I realise it was a long article, must have taken 30 seconds to read. Back to the point though, I wonder what Leeds consider demanding wages? The don't appear to be able to compete with Sc thorpe on this front. Bates bangs on about making a profit, well this is a football club not a branch of Tesco, invest Ken or retire, the latter being prefrable.(7)(16)

They signed Bebe who they have been talking to for a few days now.
So now we know there is deffinately 5 bull s tters on here not to listen to anymore.
Why waste your time posting nonsense.
So now Utd have 2 strikers signed and 2 defenders, when we clearly need more options in centre midfield?

 12 Aug 2010 10:51:52
Arsenal:

I'm working on a few projects For Arsenal FC. From the boardroom chatter and those who know higher ranking officials in the club, including my director who is an avid arsenal fan, This is his impression from general football chatter with other board members that he has had, and conversely a chat i had with him. So my breakdown from the convo.

Arsenal are not a club to spend for a name. We make names. Nasri, Arshavin, Fabregas, Henry, Berg, Viera, and so on.

Highest arsenal signing ever is Arshavin for 15 million. All the players mentioned including Arsh, Are worth over 20 million if they were sold today.

The club does not buy the name game. Also Wenger does not feel any player is worth the price tag. Its only a player and for the price of ronaldo if you can build a team it trumps the one player. Logical thinking basically.

So to All arsenal fans, from the rumours understand that any player worth 12–15 million is under heavy consideration. 15 million spent by arsenal = 30 million spent by Man utd.

Mark Schwarzer or Shay Given, and one defender. Combined value should be 15 million.

The thinking is that wenger will sell fabregas between 35–40 million and sign Hazard or Kesuke Honda not both. Unless Arshavin wants out next year, then possibly both.(25)(24)

Celtic News:

Celtic have made an official move to bring Bellamy to Parkhead, they have spoken with representitaves from Mac City and Bellamy's agent and are hoping he will sign due to his previous time there.

Carlos Aruz is opening contract negotions after his successful trials, rated at £1.8m will find out the outcome before end of week.

Liam Lawerence will sign after McGeady deal to Spartak goes through.

Hinkle to stay at Celtic Park and if no left back is bought will operate in that position till January.

Rangers News:

Jelavic deal hangs in balance STILL confirm reports that Rapid are awaiting potential bids from 2 Premiershp side and Jelavic has not hid his desire to go there, theis situation will be resolved before Saturday.

James Beattie will sign before Saturday.

Benalouene will fly in for talks at the start of newxt week with both clubs but Rangers is his preferred destination as he feels competiton is limited.


Salcido – Celtic – No foundation, if anyone he is likely to join premiership side eg. Tottenham or Liverpool as both have confimed interest.

Both clubs do have other players on radar but nothing concrete to go on.

Really!! What a complete cock!! So Barca are paying for a player who will not join them until next year, when they can get him on a free next year. An werder are so stupid they agree to receive a £100, 00 per game this season for a player that is staying with Werder this season according to you!!

Their chances of getting Neymar have dipped dramatically though with Santos refusing to do business with Chelsea, Chelsea must cough up the full 29m if they want this boy, with Chelsea only willing to cough up 16m they have no chance of signing this player!(30)(12)

Rumours flying around this morning are that Bebe has been signed as a replacement for Berbatov, this is because finally Fergie is offloading him in a swap deal for Ozil! Seems to make good sense we pay 7.4m for Bebe rather than 15m for Ozil and get rid of Berb! I read this rumour on a few different forums and can see it being a possibility!

Just been told Goodwillie in Murray Park at this minute.

mmmmmm that's strange is he not playing for scotlands under 21s

believeable

to be fair, the under 21's played at St Mirren park. . not that unbelievabe that he could have made his way to Murray Park afterwards/before. . this is a signing that should happen in my opinion, right age/nationality and prospects.(17)(31)

I have heard that allowing Julian Bennett to go to Crystal Palace is a big part of a plan. When we(Forest) allowed him to go it was on the condition we have a chance to speak to Ambrose in January if the right money is being offered to Palace. Bennett may be used in part of a swap deal although i hope not as he is class and just needs to get over his injury or we will just pay money for Ambrose. So this loan is perfect for Forest. . We get our former player of the season back fully fit and we get to try and lure Ambrose to the City Ground. Come on Jules will surely be able to persuade him to come.
Also this is only my opinion but i think we will use the loan period till January then if we are going strong i think we won't make the same mistake twice and we will strengthen significantly is January either signing the players we have on loan from prem clubs or making a few class signings.
Oh 1 more thing lets hope WBA come down and show shotey he made the wrong choice.

Arsenal are going to sign 2 more players:

Schwarzer 3–4mil

Sphaic 6–8.5mil

Schwarzer has returned to craven cottage to hold talks with Hughes as he wants the move to Arsenal and I think if Hughes says no, then schwarzer will definately hand in a transfer request, .

Sphaic has also said that he wants the move to Arsenal. We have held talks with Stiggart for Tasci but have not made a bid as he is to expensive and has a buy out clause.(21)(13)

I have just heard that Craig Bellamy is set to join arsenal , and why are people saying that Chelsea are going to sign david luiz and ozil the days of spending millions are over so stop writing stuff about Chelsea

You reckon arsenal are going to sign bellamy? are u retarded or just a tool? Arsene does not want or need another striker. . Chelsea have been strongly linked to both those players Ozil $15m, Luiz possibly in deal with Ramires.

The days of spending millions are over are they? really? because I am of the impression that they are still alive are well! I mean man city are set to spend $140m this transfer window!

and he will return to motuaga smith will also sign 3 youngsters

Rangers: with regard to comments earlier about James Beattie going to Rangers this is not true. Rangers will sign Jelavic in next week, Rapid are hoping a EPL team becomes interested to boost up the price, they are already resigned to the fact they are losing him now rather than free (although they only paid £200k for him 2 years ago they are wanting £4.5m upfront and Rangers only bidding £4.5m butin installments)
Rangers will also sign Tommy Smith this weekend and he will be at Ibrox on Saturday but not playing.
If Rangers don't sign Jelavic they will go for David Goodwillie of Dun Utd but this would be right at end of transfer deadline. Rangers are looking to sign 3 players possibly 4. A striker, a right winger and left winger. If possible and right player available a centre half aswell. Lots of names being branded about but these are definate Rangers targets and i am sure walter will get them. Tommy Smith RM, Jelavic STK and a left winger?? These 3 signing will win Rangers the league(17)(31)

BIT OF NEWS EDITOR – Just found out Manchester United never paid 7.4m for Bebe, journalists are assuming United paid 7.4m because that is how much his buy out clause was, everyone knows people never have to meet the full clause, look at Di Maria his buy out clause was 39m but he was bought for 20m, i would guess that United paid around 4m for him, the fee is actually undisclosed!

Ed, do you think that with Man Utd signing the new Portuguese striker that the Ozil to Man Utd deal is dead? do you think this leaves the door open for chelsea to swoop? or will we be buying a cb? please give me your all knowing opinions.

CHELSEA FOR THE TREBLE! {editor's note – I was more wondering if this lad was the reason for the Ninis deal not happening. We all assumed that it was Ozil's availability but maybe it was Bebe that made Fergie move on. I certainly can't see United buying Ozil as well, Bebe is, apparently, an attacking midfielder, I can't see both joining in one transfer window. Whether or not Chelsea will move for him is a different matter, I have not heard any concrete news of them making a move for him. I thought Kakuta was the man for that position?}(36)(41)

Dont get buisness sense at ibrox at minute, we bringing in beatty who basically a squad player used to be good, average now, and we also bring in another squad player from popey who isn't first team player, grrr wtf walter, we get rid of boyd who scores a ton of goals for us, trying t get crotian player?? but he wants over 20k supposedly, when thompson only wanted few thousand extra and boyd would of only been 20k a week, so wtf are use playing at, is the jelavic deal dead or something as don't get why bringing in these 2 strkers when supposedly spending 4 million bringing jelavic to ibrox, me starting to think this deal is dead and walter going for these 2 players now for cover, , , , , , wat you think ed?. not sure what going on when walter said he was reducing the wage structore? confused.com. and no matter what happens at ibrox still 3 in the row, maybe got good players brought in, but what does it matter if can't defend, and trust me use can't defend worth a fk ha ha {editor's note – I think Beattie will do well up there, if given the right support he is a good player, but he needs confidence boosting, arm on the shoulder type management to get the best from him. Not surprising he struggles sometimes when his best mate was telling him he wasn't good enough when he signed for Everton! I can't see you buying Smith, Beattie and Jelavic, though Smith does mostly play as an attacking wide midfielder rather than striker. How much do you get from the Champions League due to Celtic going out?}(31)(23)

Rangers have had 1.5m bids accepted for both TOMMY SMITH and, incredibly JAMES BEATTIE.

I'm led to believe that the deals for these two will put a stop to the deal for NIKIKA JELAVIC as Smith has grown tired to being pushed around by Rapid.
However, these deals may encourage Jelavic to quickly accept the offer on the table in order to secure the move

Expect NACER BARAZITE to sign, but not in the next few days as reported. He's on trial for another couple of weeks and Smith wants to see him play in another bounce game before signing him

I have to say as a Rangers fan that dropping pursuit of Jelavic for Beattie and Smith is a joke. A young, promising striker or two AVERAGE old men for .5m difference is not a hard decsion for me(46)(38)

Smith Portsmouth £900.000
JelavicRapid £3.5 m
BenalouneStEttienne £1.2 m

A bit of good news for the EDITOR and many neutral footy fans on this site, Bebe (Manchester United's new signing) is actually more of an attacking midfielder than a striker, he likes to collect the ball from deep in midfield and attack, Viktoria fans class him as an attacking midfielder, he is our Ozil!

United will NOT be buying Ozil and this is the reason why, damn Fergie had everyone fooled, the man is a genius lets be honest! Editor we have said for a while United need an attacking midfielder and i guess he has arrived!

Beccio to Celtic . . I MEAN COME ON CELTS! ! FFS!

1. He signed a new contract with Leeds 10 days ago
2. He's 1 of 2 strikers leeds have available atm
3. Celtic have 8 forwards on their books.
and 4. HES TOTALLY AVERAGE AND NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR CELTIC NO.7! ( And im very much a Rangers fan )

Celtic will sign Ramis and St Ledger and also , In MY opinion , If Bellamy don't make the 25man Man City squad i expect him to accept WHATEVER celtic can afford tbh , think about it . . why would he quit football all–together , rather than accept £35k a week to play for a team he loves week in week out?

Rangers targets. .

Nugent/Smith – Portsmouth ( 1.2m ) 1 WILL happen

Welcome – Motugua ( 400k ) WILL sign in nxt 48 hours

Bazarite – Arsenal ( Free ) WILL sign in nxt 48 hours

Nikica Jelavic – ( 4m ) PROBABLY sign when despute about 30% sell on fee is resolved – Rangers been asked to pay 15% of this directly to his old club S.V. Zulte Waregem.

Katlego Mphela – (Maybe) Desperate for the move , not to sure if Rangers are that interested tbh.

Bongani Khumalo – SuperSport United ( 500k ) WILL be signed but don't expect a superstar as he will be used as back–up.

Benny Feilhaber – AGF Aarhus ( Maybe ) COULD be signed for Right side , as Steven Davis takes up a central role this season.

Also expect 1 or 2 loan signings , targets being:
Tom Cleverly – Needs Champs League exp
Federico Facheda – Long shot
Rodrigo Possebon – Will happen
Jake Livermore – Maybe
Marcus Bent – Expect this move if Jelavic don't happen.

Any feedback should be headed . . To Ceejay

PS . . ED. . you might wanna make a new page just for this submission lol sorry , i am obsessed with typing :)

CEEJAY!

Ceejay, just because the number 7s avalible what makes you think becchio would get it and anyway its only a number. Bellamy is NOT going to celtic. Smith i hope doesn't hapen. Whos motuga? I agree about jelavic and mphela and probably khumalo. Feilhaber i doubt will come. Durrant and barazite have said it will be a 1 year loan deal. None of thoose loans will happen especially "facheda" and there is no chance bent will be coming thankfully.

Tottenham Hotspur news.

Information from Gary Cahill's cousin that Spurs and Bolton have agreed a fee, don't know how much yet, and just personal terms to sort out on Thursday. Hopefully this will be part of a triple signing to be announced on Friday. These will be Cahill, Pletikosa on loan and Ashley Young. No striker will be signed after the form of Robbie Keane in pre season.

Any news on spurs editor? {editor's note – I don't believe that there is anything in the Young rumours, very unlikely while there is no manager. Once one is in place that could change though, depends on whether he rates Young or whether he feels the same way as I do about him! By the way, why would you be signing another centre half? Don't you already have too many? Or is Woodgate just being offloaded because of his injuries?}(11)(37)

In resonse to all those delusional Leeds fans, we don't want ure non–entity of a player.

This is not the class signing we are expecting I can assure you.
Now for a fact, I have it on very good authority that regardless of whats in papers/on tv that Bellamy will be in grren & white hoops before the end of the month. This comes from a number of reliable editorial contacts.(27)(33)

Olympique de Marseille defender Julien Rodrguez was spotted in Glasgow's west end today. It's thought he met with a Celtic FC official with a view to signing for the club

Is this the same Julien Rodrguez who left Rangers as he didn't like Scottish football?

Rangers don't really want to sell Webbie but after another injury..?, Hell be a make weight, I also expect something to happen with either the American boys or the African boys and Strong strong rumours Hutton will be back on a loan. There is a newcastle fans website filled with comments that Alan Smith will be sold to Rangers. Any thougts on my commets ED? can you clear up the Smith rumour?(29)(45)

Wenger will sign Spahic

Not signing Mertesacker

Tasci wants Arsenal move but will sign Spahic as Sagna reccomends him and because of Wenger's French connections will get him fairly cheap.

On the goal keeper front,

Schwarzer link will not dissappear but I still think Wenger will put Almunia between the sticks. I mean when has Wenger actually ever said he will sign a new no.1.

Hazard and GK in January if Almunia performs badly.(45)(22)

Right then Forest fans, i have just had a chat with a well known ex forest player and he stated that he does`nt expect any new signings to be concluded in this transfer window, he expects Forest to try their luck with loanees in September!

He also said that he did`nt expect Billy Davis to still be at Forest come December, he went on to say that there are some at the CG who want him out! that`s why there are`nt any major signings at Forest!

They want to save money for a new man to add the players he wants in January! Believe it or not, but this guy is well known and i did`nt think he was lying!

No major signings this transfer window!!(25)(51)
