notts county will sign dean parrett. notts is to have talks with marcus haber and notts fan favorite jonathan forte. notts will be selling enoch showunmi to unamed league 2 side. krystian pearce is expected to sign a new contract with the club after having a good pre season in finland

Why do we need more strikers? Haber and forte would be a waste, we've just signed Danny Haynes and we seem to have exciting youth strikers coming through. We don't need any more



12 Jul 2013 21:51:40
Aston villa are interested in matej vydra as a replacement for Benteke and are prepered to pay upto 10m for his services

Heard this the other day, keep up treacle

Isn't he a cm? are you being serious!

hull after ex liverpool striker kuyt for £1million since as they lost out on austin.
also hull are intrested in
bridcutt (brighton) 3.5 million
cattermole (sunderland) 1.5 million

Kuyt to Napoli

Why are they always after players cardiff are?

Alot of teams are linked with same players

Bridcutt is staying at Brighton to help us get promoted

13 Jul 2013 07:46:02
3.5 million for bridcutt, you would have to a lot more than that, palace just paid 8million for a league one player, bridcutt staying.

Have you ever thought Cardiff are always after player that hull are going for?

Ashely barnes being chased by 5 prem clubs and 4 championship sides
Should get a million 4 him come on seagulls let's get it on

13 Jul 2013 13:08:34
QPR trying to get Bridcutt but Brighton want too much

Not sure why prem clubs are chasing Barnes. He is not a bad player and as a Brighton fan I would rather he stayed than left. However, I am sure he is not good enough for the top flight as he lacks pace and strength. He also needs a lot of chances to score and can miss very easy chances at times.

Brighton don't want too much you just can't afford him. If he leaves us this season it will be to a premiership team

Brighton wil never get promoted keep on dreaming



12 Jul 2013 18:00:07
Damian Batt in talks to sign for Colchester Utd



12 Jul 2013 18:48:51
Notts county are set to sign mark fotheringham and dean parret in the upcoming weeks david bell also in talks with notts



12 Jul 2013 18:19:45
Huddersfield are interested in taking Andre Wisdom on loan for the season

Nah, he's going Wigan.

Does this mean hunt is off

If true it can only mean Hunt is on his way to the Prem. other rumours involve Christie from Coventry, another right back so maybe Hunt is on his way, £3million in the bank and fair play rules meaning loans will give us cash fluidity to sign a top midfielder.

I doubt he'll be coming here as Fulham want him on loan!



12 Jul 2013 17:52:48
Matt Heath and Danny Stevens to complete moves to Oxford United in the coming weeks

Heath has been on trial the past month. But has injured ankle, so we're not interested in him anymore.
We are not after Danny Stevens at all



12 Jul 2013 17:44:11
Bristol city have signed brad smith from Liverpool young left back should be announced Monday




12 Jul 2013 15:51:36
Ed what are the chances of baines and fellaini playing for Everton next season? Anymore news on potential signings?

Not great and no.

12 Jul 2013 22:06:05
if they go it'll be a massive price, a few others lined up - they would be further additions should either baines or fella leave.



12 Jul 2013 16:48:37
Boro still in talks for Danny Graham on loan. Sunderland need to make room and are willing to ship him out on split wages. A guy I know who works at rockcliffe said that Boro expecting players in by Monday.

What ever mate we need speed up top he's to much like the juke yea he would be good 4 us I still think we need more speed up top find a muzzy pz

This danny graham saga is dragging on and on everyday. They won't be able to afford him billy sharp is more realistic.



12 Jul 2013 16:27:06
Burnley to sign Sam Baldcock from Bristol City.

Would take a considerable offer.

Dont want him. Waaaay over rated

I have seen no evidence to suggest this might happen.

It looks like Sam is staying or keeping his discontent very quite.



12 Jul 2013 16:14:31
Bristol Rovers will offer SIMON FERRY the opportunity to train with them over the next few weeks.



12 Jul 2013 16:26:29
After losing out on Thomas Ince Cardiff City will now turn their attentions to Bristol city's transfer seeking winger Albert Adomah. It is believed that a bid of £1.5m is imminent which should secure the pacey winger for the Red Dragons

Not premier quality so why when there is loads better out there.

Don't want him, don't rate adomah at all

Won't happen as he's very keen to join probable promtion candidates and Europe bound Wigan. He handed in a transfer request to push this through.

How much have you seen adomah play not much I suspect. on his day can beat any defender

12 Jul 2013 21:39:07
how about chris eagles or lee chung yong

Eagles is much better

Trust me I saw both eagles and Adomah last season Adonai has far more skill and pace eagles is the better passer of the ball though

Adamoah can be a match winner, but I must admit I don't see a player that week in week out would be top flight quality.

But then what do you expect for a million quid? If you want to sign a top quality winger you will have to pay five times that.

AA is looking like great value for money.



12 Jul 2013 16:21:38
Shrewsbury are closing in on 3 players on loan. Also John Cofie is understood to have been on trial with the Shrews along with a few others this week.

I'd walk a GREEN MILE to have this guy in my team, he's DEAD good and ELECTRIC pace down wing. Plus he is effing huge.

Cofie. Dream on. Not a hope. He is quality. Which means he won't sign for us.

Theres a very good chamce - He isn't with any club at the moment so if no one else is interested he probably will sign for us. Only a youngster so wages shouldn't be too much either

Was it Cofie who was playing up front for Shrewsbury today against Galatasary along side another trialist?Lively performance, had speed, a few skills, decent player.

Wasn't cofie was a French striker and other player was Marsden from stoke

Anyone know the real names of the two trialist strikers playing for shrews in the second half against galatasary listed as jon marsdon and james smith?

No it wasn't Cofie, it was James Smith, Akwasi Asante and Jon Marsden

John Cofie played the whole of the 2nd half yesterday for Town under the name of Smith. He also played in the closed door friendly vs TNS on Tuesday. Did his chances of earning a contract ho harm yesterday.

James Smith was a false name given to John Cofie.

Cofie did not play! I said about French lad and Marsden



12 Jul 2013 15:39:45
Danny Ward in advanced talks with Bradford, set to sign on Monday. Fee already agreed with Huddersfield.

This would be a good signing! Seems to only be a bit part player for Town and would have the opportunity to play for his home town club! I'd like to see him join up

Danny Ward is in Spain with most of the team so this is a load of drizzle.

If true, Ward would be a good capture for Bradford. He hasn't made the expected impact in the Championship for us

Utter tripe, Ward may not be automatic first choice winger but he is too good to drop a division and would cost £1million which is what we paid for him. Maybe the Bantams will chip in Wells to seal the deal!

Apparently it's Wolves who are interested in Ward according to Sly. Bit strange as we just paid for Hammill and could have been part of the deal.

Wouldn't be disappointed if he left. Not consistent enough for Town. Get funds for another. possibly Tomlin.

If Bradford have 800k to 1Mil then there's no chance of getting Danny Ward.

Am pretty sure ward wouldn't go to bradford, if he was to leave it would be championship club or top league 1. he won't leave town I don't think anyway

No way. Got a feeling this will be Ward's season. And if he was to leave, it'd be to another Championship club.

If Ward can't get in your team then he's clearly not good enough for The Championship, simple logic tells you that, as you finished near the bottom anyway.

You could also definately say he's way too good for bradford as you came from div 2 in play offs and not tested in league 1. he was a regular for town when fit

Ward was injured for a considerable part of last season which is why he didn't play much. When he came back though, he did put in some good performances even when not at 100%.

Ward was inj most of season he haz got ability to be one of the best wingers in the league with a good run of games a lot of key players inj at the same time last season so he won't be going no were ward on the cheap htfc

The only way I see Wardy leaving is if Nakhi Wells is moving in the opposite direction. Would be a worth-for-worth swap

Doubt it, played in yesterdays friendly and scored, so tells me he is in Mark Robins plans for this season. He didn't play for a lot of last season because of injury, so every other fan who clearly knows a lot about him maybe read up why he wasn't playing before saying 'he couldn't get in the team' would have been surprised if he did with a broken foot!

Ward is a Bradford lad and was born in Saltaire where his family live, don't think this rumour will come of anything though.



12 Jul 2013 15:38:32
Doncaster set to bring in Shea Given on a season long loan from Aston Villa with reports saying that Richard Dunne and Stephen Ireland could follow. Rovers have wealthy Irish investors coming in who are prepared to spend big money to help the club with rumours being in te region of up to 20 million pounds. Exciting times to be a Donny Fan!

12 Jul 2013 16:58:07
Dunne in talks with qpr

Talks are talks. Nothing more.

One of the Irish investors is an old friend of Doncaster Rovers, let's hope it comes off, with JR at elm and with new investors we have a chance, maybe the new guys will also realise that there needs to be changes within the back room staff, and in particular the commercial staff, who don't seem to have a clue, about time we had some Doncaster people who have the club at heart

We are talking Donny here aren't we?im a nufc fan and they call us deluded? {Ed003's Note - Talks are ongoing about investment from an Irish consortium}

Billy sharp at keepmoat sat for game v motherwell

Don't talk rubbish he will not be at the game today

Duffy on bench for Donny must have signed today but forrester not at training yesterday or at the game today must have got fed up of waiting to sign and left don't blame him if he has because I have never known a club like us we take so long to sign players contracts.

Doncaster to sign 3-4 more players in the up and coming 48 hours or so, and Duffy looks to have finally signed

Forrester was on the bench today, he and Maxted were the only players not to play today.

Duffy just been confirmed on Rovers website so is now officially a Donny player.

Forrester was on the bench today, he and Maxted were the only players not to play today.

No he was not, unless he is Middleton as he and Maxted were unused subs.

Mvoto also close to finalising a 2 year deal, paperwork almost completed

Any updated news on the irish investors bringing in shay Given and co ?, cheers.



12 Jul 2013 15:06:23
Reading interested in a cash plus player deal for Charlie Austin, Adam Le Fondre could be the player involved.

Pointless because we are short up front hence the attempt to sign one


Possible. if not probable!

Only got a year left on his contract, no sign of him wanting to sign a new deal, clouds over his overall fitness after the falling through of the Hull deal etc.

There's a 20% sell on fee payable to Swindon so a cash plus player deal would help to minimise this and Le Fondre will likely do very well at Turf Moor. or anywhere else in the Championship.

Likely £1. 5-£2. 0 million plus Le Fondre will convince the Clarets to sell.

Le Fondre and money wouldn't make sense at all. He'll have the same production as Austin so why give money as well?

Very much doubt it, players involved would most Likely be Blackman, who wants a move back up north, or possibly even Jobi mac.

Adam Le Fondre is highly rated by Adkins, and worth at least £4 million, so the player would not be him.

Adam le fonder will not go to burn key they are a mid championship Side. If it was likely that he was moving away from reading, it would be to a mid PREMIER LEAGUE team

I thought blackman is going back off to sheffield

4m for Le Fondre your having a laugh

Atleast 5mill for Lefondre 2nd most amount of goals per mins {Ed003's Note - Aren't stats great}

12 Jul 2013 15:06:23
Reading interested in a cash plus player deal for Charlie Austin, Adam Le Fondre could be the player involved.

Why oh why would we use the striker we're trying to find a partner for as a make weight in a deal? Explain how that works!

Le fondre is worth every bit of that 4 million if not more scored 12 goals in the prem last season in a struggling team

Proven premiership English striker. Worth every penny of 4m
However, he's going no where.

Le Fondre is worth as much as we want for him. He scored 12 premier league goals he's worth more than £4m. I believe he is valued at about £6.5m. And because Reading don't need to sell anyone he'll be worth even more.

So a fair deal may be a swap with no cash involved but I just cannot see him leaving, he's happy here with us.

WHY JUST WHY? Reading really don't need to sell/swap any players especially le fondre {Ed029's Note - Le Fondre wont be included in any cash+player deals.



12 Jul 2013 15:04:57
Shay given has signed on loan to doncaster rovers and also it looks like Richard dunne and shephen irleand are also heading to rovers

Plus billy sharp was spotted in doncaster last night and could be on his way back to rovers

What a load of baloney!

Wow, I've now heard billy sharp has been spotted in reading, Nottingham and now doncaster.

The only place he would of been spotted in was donny because donny are the only club to put a bid up for him and he said its preferable choice

Billy sharp will not come

Billy sharp will not return to Rovers as his wage demands are to high, Rovers don't have enough potential to be in a promotion race, hence to why he left 18 months ago, loved to be proved wrong though.



12 Jul 2013 14:46:59
Bournemouth are set to sign Neal bishop on a 1year contract

Not sure Bournemouth require any more midfielders, neal bishop and brian stock are good players but not better then what afcb have got already?



12 Jul 2013 14:54:56
A lot of new faces still to arrive at ITFC.

Eggert Jonsson - Free - CB / CM / WB
Christophe Berra - Free - CB
John Doherty - £50k - £100k - LW
Frederic Vaselli - Free - CB / RB / CM
Ross Turnball - Free - GK

Dean gerken has signed a 2year contract so turnball might be a bit iffy rumour

Jonsson is a good player, I'd like to see him at town. Great squad player.



12 Jul 2013 14:42:05
Burnley to sign Sam Baldock and David Jones today

Jones deal already done, medical was completed before the team went off to Cork, not sure about Baldock.

David jones on trial with Burnley in Ireland. He won't be signing today neither will anybody else today

Jones signed 3 year deal due to be announced. very soon.

Jones is signing after Friendly at Cork

12 Jul 2013 14:28:06
norwich are closing in on another eye catching signing with juve and italy forward fabio quagilliera widely expected to sign a deal with the canaries early next week.

Not convinced with his scoring record. price seems a bit steep

Good player and makes a lot of goals and would be a great number 10. There is a need for a bit of an "old head" up top and he fits the bill if you ask me

What's the point in selling holt because he is to old but he is only 1 or 2 years older then whatever his name is yes I know he is better but norwich need a pacey striker

Second forward so it is scoring record plus assists that really says what he does. Has the finesse for our cam role. But pricy for an oldster. For the money I'd prefer we upped our bid for N'Doye who has a game that is made for prem football.

Brilliant player and would be a great signing but 7 mil seems a lot for someone his age? Also will he really want to come here?

Agree he is a bit pricey but I suppose that's where we are heading as a club now if we want to progress then these are the sort of guys we need he's been there and done it all, if a couple of guy's with bag's of experience could get us pushing for Europe and away from danger and are willing to come to us then happy day's

Are you joking? A snail would move more than Holt.
We need players that work as hard as Hoolahan, and there aren't that many of that work rate on the market!

I know we need to take forward steps but £40k pw for a 30 year old plus £7.5m doesn't seem like a good deal. £8.5m for RvW at 24 is the sort of deal we should do; good potential selling on fee, etc. we've been close to going bust only 4 years ago - we don't need to go down that road again.

We need Alfred Finnbogason from Dutch side Heereveen

I watch every game Norwich played lesy year. Holt is one of the hardest working players we had. let's not knock the guy he was a legend. let's move forward now

Holt maybe a snail but his record speaks for its self. what's happend to the hooper deal?

Yeh at first I thought this was a potential great signing, it still is but not if we have to pay that much per week. Although if he scores goals then I bet we all will be saying it's worth it. It's a risk.

Exactly we have been there on the brink of going bust i'm sure after DM's great work he would never let us get in that predicament again, players like RVW are rare the chance of getting another like him is slim without winning things of pushing for it, its a gamble but we need to bridge the gap between us and top 10 that's not cheap

Holt was only good in the championship lucky 1st season 2nd season summed him up, 30 ain't that old he will get 2 good years and he is a very good player way higher then holt, i'm happy holt has gone now he can be called a legend and not jsut sit on the bench doing nothing

This player has stunning numbers 13 goals and 3 assists in 17 appearances for Juventus last season. These numbers for a second striker / CAM are very strong (imagine Wes Hoolhan scored 25 goals last year and then think about what value a player like that would be) even at 30 years old 6m would be good value. If this player is still hungry and fit, signing him would be a real coup.

This would be an excellent signing. With all of the youth we're bringing in we'd do well to get an experienced scorer.

To old would be dead money but redmond and fer and wolfy are class and my 100 quid on Norwich to finnish top 10 looks good at 6-1 already slashed to 3-1

How can you have a lucky season? It's 40 games in the top league in the world. He scored some really skilful goals. I take you don't understand football

Skill full goals I don't think you understand football nore watch it

Why is it when someone says something about holt it's he's ov a Ipswich fan or he don't understand football lol get over it not everyone likes the same players as you don't mean they are less a fan

Old but but a good acquisition. Wages may be a bit high.

Holt is 33



12 Jul 2013 14:21:55
West Ham United have applied for a work permit for Colombian striker Duvan Zapata after lining up a deal with Argentine side Estudiantes for the 22-year-old



12 Jul 2013 14:15:29
Mick McCarthy is considering a move for free agent Eggart Jonsson, MM signed Jonsson in January 2012 while managing Wolves.

I've heard the same.

Another signing which mick. wasted money on.

He never played him so why would he buy him again?

He had his favourites at Wolves in the MF, he knows he needs to strengthen the ITFC MF to gain promotion.



12 Jul 2013 14:15:24
Bradford have shown interest in lee camp, they want him to compete with McLaughlin for no1

Possible as we need a keeper

Campo would be a good keeper in the upper half of Div 1 He did a good job at Forest but not quite good enough for an ambitious Championship club



12 Jul 2013 13:50:51
Bradford have made a bid for huddersfield cb peter clarke undisclosed fee thought to be around 350k

Another CB at Bradford? That would make Clarke no 6 which I doubt very much

Dream on, no chance of him leaving, not this season for sure.

A defender we have more defenders than two teams put together

Hurray!! Town Although unfortunately I doubt this is true, Town fan.

Hope so he's garbage in championship, but he's a decent cb in League 1.



12 Jul 2013 13:43:18
Leroy lita is having talks at Bristol city!

12 Jul 2013 17:27:03
Lita has agreed terms with Sheff aweds but the sticking point is his pay off from Swansea. He wouldn't drop two divisions

Thought the plan was to build a new and exciting team and your suggesting we take Lita who hasn't delivered in the last few years. Come on buddy think straight and get real



12 Jul 2013 12:52:21

Would Middlesbrough fans rather have Billy Sharp or Danny Graham, if we actually get either of them.

Danny Graham northeast lad

Danny graham any dayof the week

Graham. Sharp's good but inconsistent. It'd take something big for him to be a 20-a-season striker for Boro.

For me Billy Sharp without question

Danny graham, hands down

Danny Graham, never wanted him to leave in the first place and I think he's the brave sort of striker that we need someone who will put his body in there, (I seem to remember him heading the post against Coventry I think to get a goal first time in a boro shirt) although I wouldn't say no to either!

Danny Graham, great goal scoring record in the Championship!

Always in every footballing mind Danny graham! All day, week, month, year, decade long!

Danny graham hope we get Albert Adomah too

Why is Danny Graham the answer he was with Boro 5 years loaned out to 5 different clubs and then let go for nothing. 2nd time around it wouldn't work for him.

Graham has been going through some poor form, which I can't c him breaking until its too late. I wld rather a proven championship scorer in sharp

Sharp is not a 20goal a season player by a long stretch

Graham even though I'd take either

Danny graham was behind world class players at Boro, that's why he couldn't get into the team, his record in the championship with Watford was superb and he sticks his foot in (take note emnes).

Billy Sharp any day of the week



12 Jul 2013 13:03:50
Norwich now interested in Fabio Quagliarella as Ola Toivonen transfer has fallen through

I would be so happy if we got him absolutely quality

We rejected offer

He rejected us



12 Jul 2013 12:54:28
Clayton Donaldson will join Sheffield United in the next week as Brentford have sign grigg and he feels he will get more football at Sheffield United

No chance Donaldson main Brentford Striker, Brentford got Will Grigg to play along side him still wishfull thinking on Sheffield United part, As our manager has said he is not for sale.

I've also heard this about Sheffield Utd and Donaldson (Bees fan), hoping it not be true but could well be as he will not be playing as much as he would like to due to the signing of grigg.

Ha ha, sheffield won't afford him and he wouldn't got there anyway. that's a big step down

Haha, no chance donaldson leaving brentford fo sheff utd as our manager has said not for sale,
grigg signed to play along side donaldson and donaldson main striker so. not for sale.

Donaldson is better than Grigg, I doubt he would feel threatened. Grigg just scored a load of penalties he didn't win. Don't over-hype him. He can tap in OK but nothing more.

13 Jul 2013 01:31:42
united are apparently close to signing lyle Taylor, I can't see weir going for Donaldson as he's trying to build a passing team and from what I saw of Donaldson at bramall lane is he was utilised as a target man which won't play to united strengths. Also can't see any room in our already tight budget

Would be a decent sighning for that division but tbh think he'll stay at brentford.

He will be a Mansfield player next week.

Brentford are favourates to go up, why would he leave?



12 Jul 2013 13:23:40
Bradford City have Brian Jensen in on trial - watched him today but looked slightly rotund & a bit slow.

He's always been slightly rotund and a bit slow, even when he first came to England :)



12 Jul 2013 13:10:37
Juventus Striker Quagliarella could be on his way to Norwich City as a 7. 5M euro fee has been agreed for the 30yr old, Norwich to offer around 40k a week wages. I for one will wait and see if we actually pull this off but looks positive and Norwich showing real intent this summer with their recruitment. Also Leroy Fer has passed his medical and should be announced the the end of today. OTBC

Any more news on Qualiarella? There were comments that he may be linked with Napoli but I don't know if these were accurate. Does this player want to play in the Premiership?



12 Jul 2013 12:24:48



12 Jul 2013 12:41:09
Swindon are looking at Billy Kee as a replacement for James collins, who is heading to Wolves.

Really, don't tell me he will sign on Monday? No it will be Tuesday or maybe Wednesday?



12 Jul 2013 12:40:28
Portuguese striker Hugo Almedida is training with Crystal Palace.

No he isn't! This was a misinterpretation on the palace forum of a picture of an unknown player - the player ended up being Rui Patrício, who is training with Palace who are on camp in Portugal.

He's not Hugo almedida or rui patrico he's some unknown bearded 6, 6 foot tall striker

No, it definitely isn't Patricio. Looks a nothing like him. Nobody knows who it was, although it looks like some Austrian striker who's name escapes me.

Its janko from Austria

It turned out to be Jose Campanas.

It's jose campana who has signed for crystal palace from Sevilla for 2million

Its not jose campana as he's only 5, 11 and the guy in the picture looks 6, 5/6, 6. and he hasn't officialy signed yet

Campana has signed

The player is Sasha ogenovski

Australian CB

Great instinct and built like a tank, he will easily bully the opposition strikers. His speed and age 34 are the only concerns.

Great signing if it happens!

Its actually Atdhe Nuhiu who was training with CPFC. 6'6 striker who west ham were looking at



12 Jul 2013 12:32:34
Notts County frontman Enoch Showunmi set to sign for Burton Albion making way for Lee Barnard of Southampton.

Chris Kiwomya feels Lee Barnard will bring out the best of the new forward Danny Haynes.

Barnard won't sign and Burton don't want Showunmi

I highly doubt we will sign barnard

Showunmi does not have a great goalscoring record and at the wrong age for Burton

Rene Howe has signed for the brewers

The striker is Rene Howe who has signed for Burton Albion. Very good signing for them!



12 Jul 2013 12:28:26
Lee Johnsons last ditch to re-sign Jean Yves M'voto will come in the next 36 hours when he will offer the French centre half an improved contract to shrug of interst from championship clubs

He's going to Donny as he's even played a couple of games and already made a mistake against a striker 9 tiers who did score.

Donny fans beware he will make a lot of mistakes in the Championship greta in the air but misjudges the ball when on the deck.



12 Jul 2013 12:24:32
West Brom looking to hold talks with Toivonen after he turned down Norwich move. Could link up with Ollson and Rosenberg. Even got same agent

Wstbrom hold all the cards in this deal, toivonen want a move to the hawthorns which was a big reasoning in turning down deals elsewhere but wba have other alternative options in the pipe line first

Toivonen is after a decent wage packet. possibly have to WBA top earner but it seems Steve Clarke is looking at current or past Premier League players (Not a bad strategy)

Pleased the Toivonen deal has fallen through. If he is not going to give 100% to the club he can jog on.

'Steve Clarke is looking at current or past Premier League players (Not a bad strategy)'

Bryan Robson did that too and, Great Escape aside, it cost us. I'm a little wary when managers go for old warhorses as, in my opinion, it saves them the job of using their brains managing. Why should you strain yourself organising new, fresh potential when some tried-and-trusted old favourites can do the job for you?

Carry on.

Managers can't win bring in anelka n he's buying has beens bring in the kids like villa last year n flirt with relegation n risk having digruntled fans n ultimately get sacked or buy un tried premier league foreigners like borja valero, tamas n take a chance on toivenen large wages can't win. we r wba 8th last year

'Bryan Robson did that too and, Great Escape aside, it cost us'

Thats a good point and I don't wholely disagree but at the same time I feel this is the strongest base of players WBA have had to work with for many seasons and are well equipped for the Prem already. Replacing Lukaku is massive and I feel Clarke will sign Anelka +1 hoping they can share the load of Lukakus goals and maybe not have to play every game.

I take your point but at the end of it all, no matter all the bull sh** we post on here, Clarke will sign who he signs and we will still support them throughtout and succesful (Hopefully) season in the big time

Sheffield Wednesday are apparently one of three clubs readying with a test bid for Ipswich's Michael Chopra. Dave Jones is apparently looking to test Ipswich's resolve with a £250k bid.

That's a lot of money for a lot of trouble

No he isn't

Wouldn't have to test our resolve as we can't wait to get rid. he owes us that much from his gambling debts anyway. would free sorry for wednesday but grateful were they to take him!

You can have him. I'm sure every Town fan would happily let him go for free if another club were prepared to take him, and his reported £18,000 a week wages on.

Just get rid of chopra lucky to still be at the club should have been long gone

Please anyone just take chops, I would even drive him there,

I'd take a fee of 10 pence to get him off our wage bill

Definitely available for free

Yeah I agree, just get rid of him. What an absolute waste of money. Heard there's plenty if bookies in Sheffield so he should fit in well. Get Billy Sharp in MM. please

Ipswich take the £250K and get rid of this liability



12 Jul 2013 12:11:11
I have been told by a reliable source that Middlesbrough will sign 3 more players, which are thought to all be of Spanish nationality. 2 of them are free agents, and the last will be purchased using funds produced from the sale of a current Middlesbrough player. No specifics as of yet

Nothing is 100% done deal! We were planning on snapping up Simeon Jackson and Vegard Forren but both have gone elsewhere. We lost out on Maghoma too! When the deal is done and confirmed then I'll believe you

Sounds like David Lopez might be on his way to boro

Lopez would be a good aquisiton



12 Jul 2013 12:08:22
Cheltenham Town are looking at former Bristol Rovers left back Ross Staley, who made a number of promising appearances in their reserves last season. Mark Yates is looking for cover for Billy Jones and Staley fits the bill perfectly.
(From a very reliable source who also tipped off the signing of Matt Richards and trial of Joe Anyinsah)

But we don't have a reserves.

I think he meant rovers reserves.
Sido Jombati and Matt Richards I think give us adequate cover at LB

Rovers don't have a reserve side either!

They do have a reserve side, I watched them play last year. Neither Sido nor Matt Richards are natural left backs which is what Yates is after, as I was told



12 Jul 2013 12:03:00
A £1m bid has been rejected for grant leadbitter has been rejected, which was from big spenders Nottingham forest. Leadbitter is highly viewed by Mowbray, and he plans to keep him at boro next season

Nottingham can keep their greedy mits off! Not always the biggest Leadbitter fan but he was a constant and reliable centre mid! Mowbray seems intent on not selling up!

Boro want £2.2m + add ons

12 Jul 2013 18:17:08
2mil plus add ons. where you getting your info from, leadbitter is not for sale. he is the linchpin in our push for promotion this season, so hands off!

Big spenders no. How much money have they spent, very little.

Only because we haven't needed to, we have brought in quality players with a high value that were out of contract, why blow money you don't need to, surely that's just shrewd business? (Nottingham Forest season ticket holder)

Yeah starting to question how much fawaz has actually got not seeming very commanding in transfers



12 Jul 2013 11:50:31
Looks like Martinez is going to activate release clause by submitting a bid for Mohammed Diame. West Ham looking at Scott Parker as replacement but £70k a week wages may be stumbling block



12 Jul 2013 11:37:50
Cardiff are looking at Stefan johansen from norwegian club stromsgodset

Is that the same position that Wanyama plays

He can play anywhere in the centre of midfield and can play at left back



12 Jul 2013 11:15:40
Swindon's Darren Ward in discussions to sign a one year extention and become player coach

12 Jul 2013 13:22:01
Hope so top pro



12 Jul 2013 11:10:40
Huddlestone to Sunderland and Gardner to W. B. A



12 Jul 2013 11:10:37
Any afc wimbledon transfer rumours or gossip

Samuel Eto who has been in a poor run of form, is set to sign for AFC Wimbledon in a swap deal for Warren Cummings.

Rubbish. Samuel Eto'o of Anzil Mach'

Thanks but we don't need you to tell us that is rubbish

Eto'o has previously said how much he loves afc wimbledon and hopes to end his career there.

Love that

Would definitely welcome him to the club. Could do a job up front I reckon.

I'm not sure he'd get in the team with super jack midson up top, not really the striker we're looking for

Id rather harrison I feel he have a better work ethic let alone goal return and all round better player

Ardley has to break the bank to get back Harrison. Best player to ever wear yellow and blue lol



12 Jul 2013 11:10:26
Paul Caddis missed training today and is expected to complete a £375,000 transfer to Doncaster Rovers over the weekend

Well he was there this morning

Rovers haven't got £375k to spend on a right back, Bosman's and free's only at the Costa Del Keepmoat!

No way would the rovers pay 375,000 for caddis unless the rumours are true that there is a silent investor about to put in 20million and also to bring in shay given, richard dunne, stephen Ireland, and billy sharp happy days if this is the case.

20million pound investor

Billys at keepmoat this aft. special guest

No he's not! After he tweeted training was hard on the south cost? He's got up to donny in that time rubbish

It would be good if we had shay given in nets stephen ireland midfield billy sharp up front and paul cadis in defence with richard dunne

Caddis won't sign, Dunne unlikely, Ireland 50/50 and Given is actually close to signing



12 Jul 2013 11:06:29
Torquay United after Wolves Striker Jake Cassidy.
Although having to fight with AFC Wimbledon and Newly promoted Gillingham.

Another striker linked with gills? Rubbish. We have too many already and have let Deon Burton & Adam Birchall look elsewhere. Where people get their info from I've no idea.

Total rubbish wolves want to keep cassidy anyway.

Maybe a loan deal only

Gills have enough Strikers, if anything we will have to get rid of one.



12 Jul 2013 11:03:05
Boro target Simeon Jackson is in contract talk to move to Germany. Mowbray will now look at getting Billy Sharp from Southampton.

I think you will I find he has already joined a newly promoted side in Germany

12 Jul 2013 12:44:36
Jackson signed for German club Eintracht Braunschweig 3 days ago.

Where have you been, he signed for German club 2/3 days ago.

Hes already moved to Germany weak rumour



12 Jul 2013 10:58:02
Burnley could be set to land Striker Sam Baldock for 1. 2M later this week after the two clubs agreed a fee

How much later? Its Friday now lol

I think Burnleyis business depends on whether Austin stays or goes. If he stays I think our business is in the free agent market. Hope I'm wrong but we have a very conservative board which is why we financially are in good shape as a club



12 Jul 2013 10:56:57
Leicester in talks about bringing Matty Fryatt back to the KP Stadium. Fee in region of around £500k will be enough

Please DO NOT let this happen, he wasn't good enough 3 years ago for a promotion push, let alone now!



12 Jul 2013 10:55:31
Darren purse set to sign for Northampton town

Could be true, was playing today in the pre season match

Too old and too slow, but he looked composed v Sileby. Tozer might be a better bet alongside Langmead



12 Jul 2013 10:51:25
former Swindon Striker Adam Rooney has been spotted training with Oldham Athletic

Good spot, it has just been confirmed by Swindon that he is training with Oldham and that as another poster posted days ago, he has involved the PFA

According to our website he is just training with us whilst he sorts out his contract dispute with Birmingham/Swindon. Would be a brilliant signing, but sadly don't think it will happen

It's been officially confirmed he is in training with Oldham and can play in pre season friendlies while he attempts to resolve a contractual dispute assisted by the PFA.

Please, please, please it's a process to signing him! What a signing that would be! Gaffers

He's not that good overrated play scored some pens last season but no way worth the reported 8k a week the old boarded offered him to sign perm.

Great over head kick against us last year



12 Jul 2013 10:49:50
Reece Wabara could be signing for Derby, having Tweeted of his whereabouts yesterday

Who is he? who does he play for and position?

Man City youth CB. Can also play LB.

He was buying a car from a dealership in Derby haha.



12 Jul 2013 10:34:38
Albert Adomah has been linked with Wigan, Palace and Cardiff although its rumoured that WBA have offered over a million as well

Adomah's agent is earning his money, now that he's of finally asked for a transfer!



12 Jul 2013 10:34:10
Heard whispers that Barnsley are going to make a surprise bid for Rotherham defender Claude Davis as Flitcroft wants a big strong centre half to partner Cranie in defence.

Mcnulty and Nyatanga way better that that Darren Moore wanabee!!

Davis won't go. Him and Morgan are first choice CBs and is highly rated at Rotherham, attackers fear him.

12 Jul 2013 16:37:40
Clude Davis is about 80 no one would want a retiring cb

Claude Davis is absolutely shocking no way in hell we want to sign him

We already have Morgan. Mullins and Arnason for centre half. if we receive a decent fee then I can see him moving on as he wasn't a regular in the Crawley team in league 1.

Not far off -34.

Does anyone read the chronicle these days,
Flicker only looking for one more player, a striker, that's from the horses mouth,
Above rumour quashed,

David had championship experience, he can cut it easily at League 1 and stops our back four from been bullied.
Arnason isn't a CB, even if Iceland think he is, he's a CM.
Davis is better than Mullins and is chosen over Mullins.

How can you say Claude Davis is awful?

Flicker doesn't want a big centre half, he only wants footballing defenders. His words. Also he only needs another striker, again both from cron.

Don't care how old Claude is, he's looked solid and was a key reason we got promoted. A Miller for whole of this season for sure

Bfc not intrested



12 Jul 2013 10:17:57
ian evatt is leaving blackpool for blackburn

Hes already left blackpool and now trying to prove his fitness at Blackburn

Tom Ince has declined Cardiff City's offer to join the bluebirds

He has already left. when he was released at the end of the season

He was released ages ago

A message for Tom. Ahhhh wouldn't daddy let you come and play with us. Cardiff through and through

There are 2 reasons why Tom didn't leave for Cardiff. One is his newborn son he doesn't want to leave and relocate from his family and the other is he wants a stable premier league where he will get game time not a club that got promoted and will be relegated again the next season

A message for Cardiff through and through. No he probably didn't want to join a club that will be back in the Championship, when he could hold out for a better move.

He had a daughter. , he is going no where and that includes Blackpool. Cardiff will stay up where as Paul ince will take you down. {Ed003's Note - I know it's baby talk but lets grow up a bit please}

Apparently west ham are coming calling his week with big money for judas Rhodes.

A message for Tom. Ahhhh wouldn't daddy let you come and play with us. Cardiff through and through
Ha what an person you really are how many times it taken them to get in prem where was they when pool got in prem oh ye you lost in final nothing new there then why would he go to a club that's going to get smashed every game shows how bad the club is when so many players turn them down only real team in Wales is Swansea a great team to watch I not a fan but they play great football come back after this season and you see you back down to league you deserve to b in with your take away owners lol



12 Jul 2013 10:11:10
Apparently West ham are CONTEMPLATING making a fresh bid for Salomon Kalou, however, WBA have Kalou high on their list of targets and are able to offer him starting spot as main striker whereas West Ham clearly see Andy Carroll as their main striker. L'Equippe report Kalou would like a return to London



12 Jul 2013 09:50:54
Deon Burton leaving gillingham after not being offered new deal, there are several clubs following, including Oxford, Wimbledon.

No thanks woldnt want him at he dons

Insane comment still has a lot to offer, would of been quite happy to keep him at Gills

He hasn't been given a squad number and Gills have signed new strikers. He is gone.

Oxford are not after him at all

On trial at Scunthorpe



12 Jul 2013 09:44:35
Cheltenham are close to signing a new striker - should be announced today. This is thought to be Jack Midson.

Not Midson, we have signed Terry Gornell.

Terry Gornell signs a 2 year deal- official website

Wrong again! Terry Gornell has joined Cheltenham from Rochdale!

Terry gornell is a great player no doubt will do a good job for Cheltenham 15 goals easy when with us a shrews prob the best footballer we had but if you get to league one forget it! Shrewsbury fan all the best terry lad!



12 Jul 2013 09:43:19
Crawley have swooped for Striker Lee Barnard after Southampton confirmed he is to be released, talks are ongoing at the moment.

Notts County in advance talks to sign Barnard. Can't see a move to Crawley being more appealing than Notts County.

No way Crawley will pay his wages if they were willing to pay that sort of money they would have signe Tubbs and Rooney.

Lee Barnard would not be a good fit for Crawley. Not the right sort of player

Crawley remain keen to sign Tubbs

Lee Barnard will be a crawley player they can afford to pay him more than Notts County

Tubbs is not going to be a crawley player so tired of seeing g this untrue ruler barker has already said he is looking a lee Barnard

Hardly the 'exciting' player promised by Richard Low over a month ago and still not delivered

All talk no substance. sd the burgers we need some players

Spend some money or you will go down

Couldn't agree more. Crawley have fielded a youth squad in pre-season because they don't have the players. In desperate need of new strikers. Let's hope Low's promise still comes good

I think 1 striker 1 winger and a creative mid field player

There's no doubt Crawley are in for a long hard struggling season unless they bring in a couple of decent strikers. The CEO Richard Low is more interested in the quality of the burgers and half time cuppa than giving Barker some much needed funds in the transfer market. There have been many rumours lately that the club is skint and I tend now to think they are 100% true. There's no money left and at this rate we will be following Aldershot out of the league and into administration. Well done Low.

Evidence? The club is up for sale. Once this process has been completed, we will know more about what our budget is.

Don't really care about burgers need goals more low sort it



12 Jul 2013 09:41:31
Watford midfielder Ross Jenkins is to join Luton town on a 2 year deal with an option of a third.

Oh dear oh dear. That's treason surely.

He does need to kick-start his career, but to be honest, he's far better than that.

Yeah right. Luton fan

Utter rubbish. Jenkins may not have a future at Watford but he is easily good enough to play league football. I see him moving to a League 1 or 2 team.

Unsurprising. It's a shame how his career once looked quite bright but it went down the toilet and he can't even play well in Watford's League Cup team

What a load of rubbish, he will prove many wrong, needs a fresh start

Maybe we should loan him to Udinese?

He may not be good enough to push for a first team place at Watford, but saying he will go to Luton is like saying he is about to hang his boots up and become an insurance salesman.

Hes played over a 100 games for Watford, So I doubt this very much and he's only 22yrs remember.

Could do damage at a side like Yeovil. A few bob for 2009's 'Next Big Thing' - I'd jump the chance if I were in the Huish Park hotseat! Plying his trade in the same division but without the expectation of Premier League football and fulfiling a somewhat unearned reputation.

But to drop 3 divisions into professional obscurity would be senseless suicide.



12 Jul 2013 09:37:10
Crawley Town will finally announce the signing of Marlon Pack later today after finally getting past a few sticking points, They are also still in discussions with Matt Tubbs but the deal hinges on whether Tubbs will take a drop in wages.

We have been hearing this for weeks, I can't see it actually happening.

Pack isn't signing for Crawley. he would have done so by now if it was going to happen move on.

This didn't happen again

The move for both players is not going to happen barker said this week there will be no more transfer activity we will have to go with what we got

Crawley will not sign anymore this window

Barker did not say there would be no more transfer activity at Crawley in this window, he said they are still talking to players but talks were not as advanced as he wanted.

Crawley have been shockingly in impressive in their first 3 friendlies - particularly up front - and the penny has finally dropped. They need to spend some money


Yes very unimpressive, and unless Barker pulls his finger out and signs some decent strikers and sends Alexander back to AFC Wimbledon then we are on our way back down the leagues and non league obscurity



12 Jul 2013 09:13:12
Jernade Meade to Peterborough deal will be done over the weekend

Nope chairman already said he is not interested or after him

Isnt he currently on trial at swansea?

Is Sinclair going or staying

Interesting question given that Sinclair has been given No 12 shirt. I reckon that POSH may have to keep in as no club that have bid for him so far can match his wages. Might as well make the most of him if he is not going to accept personal terms.



12 Jul 2013 09:04:59
Fulham have been talking to Albert Adomah's representatives about a move to Craven Cottage.
The Ghana international has handed a transfer request to Bristol City. A fee has yet to be agreed, but will be around £1. 25m

Also Sam baldock to burnley in the next week or so, believed to be around 1.2 million!

Baldock ain't worth that much in my opinion. 3quarters of a mill tops.

Barnet will get 20%

Is this Adomah guy really worth it? I've heard us being linked with him for ages.

Adomah on his day is as good as zaha, its just when he's not on his day you barely notice he is playing!

That's why zaha now played for man united lol

AA isn't the finished artical and is a little older than Zaha and Tom Ince, but for a million quid you're getting great value for money.

Zaha isn't ten time better, and Ince isn't seven times better.

They are all in the same sort of league, but AA's contract situation and our relegation have made him a real bargain.

He is a full Ghana international, and is actually English so you're not subject to the wacky wims of some Africans coming to England. Though you will lose him for ACON every other year.



12 Jul 2013 08:38:13
Burton to sign a striker or 2 in the coming days as well as Rory Delap



12 Jul 2013 08:24:59
Nicky shorey and jhon panstill training with millwall both available on free transfers

Both playing in a friendly with Crawley tomorrow



12 Jul 2013 08:15:14
Clough said he would like to do a deal for Eustace. Said he has had a good pre season so far. and also can fit in and play centre back.

I don't think the club are splashing out big on a centre half then, unless they can shift some players.



12 Jul 2013 08:14:08
luke hendrie set to join Bradford next Monday for the pre season in Ireland

Luke Hendrie is currently training with Leicester whilst he is being assessed



12 Jul 2013 08:13:22
Sheffield united tracking billy sharp, Reece brown & Michael tonge

Can't see billy dropping to league one, especially after how he was treated under Blackwell. Would love it to be true, would be great to have tongey back. Not sure about brown, with Collins, maguire, higgo, hill, mcginty and young Kennedy a cb isn't needed unless we unload one of the above,

Cos they can afford billy sharp

12 Jul 2013 20:10:49
Can we? It's well known our budget is tiny this year and any new signing are likely to be free agents or loans. There is a lot of interest for billy in the championship, and although billy is a blade he has been treated badly by our previous manager and in my opinion would not come back over a team like Doncaster where he is worshipped. I don't know how you think united could afford his wages let alone the transfer fee

Be nice to have him back but he's too good for L1 at the moment.



12 Jul 2013 07:48:21
millwall set to pull out of deal for martyn waghorn as leicesters asking price has gone up nearly 30% due to interest from other clubs including bolton and boro sl will now turn he's attention to bristol citys steve davies

Bolton aren't interested! Official

Neither are boro, don't know where this is from! Don't have them money for him

Id do your research before ruling yourself out bolton are defo very interested and probley have the wage structure to pay for him the boro interest is very strong just waiting to offload players before making a serious offer they have both inquired about waghorn fact

Bolton have better already Waghorn is cack unless he's a full back! Also why would they go for another Leicester player after the Beckford debacle!

Cant see why we need a striker unless we are looking to sell someone. We have Moro, Marquis, Easter, Keough and N'Guessan as well as O'Brien. That would suggest 3 on loan or leaving, as to N'Guessan palying on the left, we have Martin, Woolford and Chaplow. We have no cover for Dunne and Lowry. Pantsil and Shorey look good bets for short term contracts wouldn't people think is a better use of limited resources.

Please behave marquis and n guessan are league one at best. Lomas is building a squad rather than eleven starters and a poor bench. The king is dead long live king lomas. Bermondsey ry

Then if he is going to bring a player in he needs to sell them or loan. No wonder everyone is in debt and the country in the mire. Balancing the books mate. I would love a top striker, but sound economics dictates otherwise. Until 1 or two of the 6 go, why bring another striker, Watch Lomas on Lions Player, see what you think.

No. Bolton are not interested in Wahghorn and that's come the club themselves via the local press. FACT

Only imo but Waghorn is from the North East & could get 'HOME SICK'? Like Morison did at Leeds! Stick with players south of the border I say!

Players tend to get homesick if the squad / crowd don't accept them. Or their wife says so.



12 Jul 2013 07:42:44
Burnley looking at brentford center back dean



12 Jul 2013 06:48:07
reading come in with a cut price 2.5 mill for austin, cheeky cheeky

Not going to reading, championship team!!

His mega dodgy knees and shoulder have been exposed to the world. No one will bid for him now

Why would he not go to Reading? Hull are likely to come straight back down and he was willing to sign for them. Reading are likely to go straight back up and stay there, at least for longer than Hull will. Burnley are selling all of their best players, they're hardly on the up, why stay? and why not go to Reading?

Austin is coming home



12 Jul 2013 01:00:33
Toby ajala to move to wimbledon on initial 3 month loan as he has been told he will not be getting first team football now jay emmanuel Thomas has signed.

Unlikely that any loan move will be agreed until after the season has started

Would be quality

Could be some legs in this rumour Ajalah-Brizzle scouts watched Fenlon plenty last season and Toby keeps saying he wants to play every week and is keen on move to Londan.



11 Jul 2013 23:51:45
Brentford to bring in Michael Mifsud from Maltese club Valletta to replace Bradley Wright Phillips who won't be staying on at the club.

Manager Uwe Rosler knows the player well having managed him at Lillestrom. The striker has been seeking a return to English football.

Funny that, wright phillips is contacted to our club, were not signing and more strikers unless a striker leaves!

from the furher himself!

Wright-Phillips has no club.

Not contracted to Brentford at all

Yah brentford are all sorted for strikers for 2013/2014. nice try though ;)

Sorry, was suppose to put NOT contracted to our club!



11 Jul 2013 23:45:02
AFC Bournemouth have made a last ditch effort to sign Billy Sharp, the offer on the table from the Championship rich boys appears to have topped that offered by both Reading & Notts Forest.

Gyejsudbeu (sorry I hit the keyboard laughing too hard. He is going to Reading)

The championship rich boys? Have you seen the amount of money Leicester, QPR etc. have? Bournemouth's wealth is middle of the road at best

Ha ha comparing Afcb to Forest and Reading and calling them rich boys!

No he's not going to reading

Yeh I'm sure this is true. love these stories that come out.

^. Read before replying. He said afcb were the leagues new rich boys.!

We're not the rich boys aha!

Bournemouth have a new russian billion air owner.

Do you see the word 'new' before 'rich boys' in this rumour? I sure as hell don't

^ No he didn't!

We can't spend it lads, the Russian was quoted as saying his hands are tied with the fair play rules

Can t see billy sharp going to reading
if you remember nigel adkins dropped
him like a brick and sent him out on
loan last season
do not think billy will forget that in a

It's been said multiple times on here but I'll repeat for the guy above, it was Cortese who forced Sharp out on loan, not Adkins. Adkins rated him highly.

And its Nottingham forest btw not notts.



11 Jul 2013 23:30:49
Neal bishop will pen a one year deal with bournemouth

Good midfielder with plenty of lower division footy, not sure if he will be championship class but saying that he could be a surprise package.

I thought he had joined Blackpool?.

12 Jul 2013 09:46:24
Errr. Don't think so!



11 Jul 2013 23:25:14
Nigel Adkins to take a risk on bringing Charlie Austin to Reading with a 2.5 mil bid even though Austin failed a medical recently.

2. 5? Hull paid 4. 5 so we won't get him for that.

He will stay at Burnley, as they will offer him a new contract.

You think his price will fall £2mil because of one failed medical? Doubt it

He's damaged goods so the price will lower. They won't get the £5M Hull offered.

That was before he failed his medical, no1 is gunna pay that for him now.

Hull offered more but he failed the medical so his valuation has to drop. Maybe not to 2. 5 but will definitely come down.

Hope so, I would take Austin over Billy Sharp even with an injury scare. He has the right attitude and any one player can get seriously injured after signing so what's the difference?

2.5m is to bypass his medical qnd take a risk

The failed medical made his value go down

I don't know whether its been pointed out but the failed medical will cause his value to drop.



11 Jul 2013 23:20:07
barry bannan to celtic

12 Jul 2013 09:59:47
Hope not, not good enough imo

Not convinced he is good enough



11 Jul 2013 23:15:41
Rumours of Andy Johnson joining Barnsley are picking up pace again.

Although Flitcroft has denied interest, he did say a deal for Chris O'Grady was dead yet he signed for Barnsley a few weeks later. Likewise with Michael Higdon who Flitcroft said a deal couldn't be done, yet weeks later he revealed that he had been in contact with Higdon who had decided to then try his luck abroad.

I doubt this one will come off. I would like Andy to join us but can you imagine how much he was on at QPR? Even if a deal was done I don't think we could sign him because he's used to massive wage slips.

Hes no good he's 32 he woulld just be like an other scotland we want a young goal scorer

He played for QPR in a friendly last night versus Exeter. also his agent is after a new contract and also talking to Crystal Palace. so not coming to Barnsley. FACT

Just can't see it happening mate the money he would require would still be way outta touch for us. plus if it did hapeen he is VERY VERY injury prone

Another Scotland? I'd be happy with that with how he plays

Hes 32 and wants to play already minted

Andy johnson was at tonights game with view to signing 2 years deal. watch this space. xx

Says on tv he wants to fire qpr back into prem. he think he owes them for bein injured all last season

How could he have been at Barnsleys game the other night. he was playing for QPR at the same time! hows your space time continuom?
