LFC NEWS from ADAM

Liverpool are also showing interest in Damien Duff
( Who i rekon we should ave boutght seasons ago)
COME ON ROBO CROUCH!!!!!!!!!!
Clearly the guy who put arsenal 6th in the league next yr is having a laugh, but this isnt a comedy site. to the guys arguing over everton and newcastle-YOU BOTH SUCK AND ARE COMPLETELY IRRELEVENT!!!!!!! But anyway this is a rumour site so here goes: nasri, merida, sahin, torres, and barton will be coming to emirates next season and expect campbell, cole and possibly reyes to find their ways out.
Everton to have a great team next season,moyes is finally going to invest wisely and not have panic buys:
Hibbert Yobo Lescott valente
Malbranque cahill petrov/Barton Arteta
moyes will have extra monwy to spend when he sells:McFadden 3mill,Kilbane 1mill,wright 2mill,naysmith 2mill. Everton will finish top 6!! Geordies will finish 10th!
to all people saying torres wont go to ARSENAL because of rosicky deal get the facts right.dortmond in money trouble wanted all money up front Ath madrid could not pay up front so dortmond came to ARESNAL!
It is true that Liverpool will turn to Mark Viduka for £1.5 million this summer as a short term solution to replace Cisse. The 30 year old will sign a 2 year deal at Anfield. It is not Hasselbaink coming after all and he is likely to sign a new 2 year deal at Middlesbrough. Daniel Alves will come in if an improved offer of £9 million is accepted for the Brazilian from Sevilla and then the 1 big player to come in although Alves is big will be either Pablo Aimar or Ronaldo or possibly even Jermain Defoe or Craig Bellamy.
I do not think that aresnal will buy another as they already have henry ,van p, adebayor, walcott also bentener and lupoli. the only way we might but one is if we sell adebayor.The performance of johan dejouru is key, if he has a good world cup then we wont buy a center back. i would like to see curtis davis or micah richards or the sod youth and just buy a proven strong center back. also ribery will join and we are looking to ofload feddy unfortunatly. Gilberto i think is aresnals second best player he does some unbelieveble work wich i think we will see this world cup with brazil, arsene wenger knows just how important he is and i know for a FACT arsene has bid for gsgo, yaya[wont go totneham he is kolos bro}],makoun and one other unknown player who is apparently the best of the lotto try and mould into him. that is what will happen
Liverpool are looking to loan saviola to cover for cisse, who will still move to lyon at a cut down price. A Pennant deal has been agreed but has been put on hold until Rafa can see whether or not deals emerge for Alves or Malbranque. Aimar is another target but looks unlikey as he has stated he is happy in Spain.
steve finnan is not 31 he had just turned 30 and would not be replaced by daniel alves if he came to liverpool as finnan has proved himself to be one of if not the best right backs in the premiership, also riise will not go, he is one of liverpools best players and also one of the most consistant players they have so why would rafa sell him, and camoranesi is likley to sign for the reds if juve are religated to solve our right midfield problem, he will cost no more then 5 million and he is one of the best right/attacking midfielders around. jimmy floyd hassilbank will not be joining liverpool neither will viduka as they are both in contract talks with borough at the moment and neither of them have the quality liverpool need for upfront. where as david villa of valencia has and rafa is very interested in signing him. He would be a record club signing if he come for around 16-18 million but would be well worth it and liverpool fc now have the finacial backing as the investors/take over talks are now completed, and they want to bring the league title to anfield once again and no they will need to spend money to do this to compete with chelsea.
!!!COMMON ENGLAND!!! BRING BACK THE WORLD CUP FROM GERMANY WITH YOU
Rangers are to sign either Nikola Zigic (Red Star Belgrade) or Roland Linz (Austria Vienna). PLG wants to play with 2 strikers, both of them goalscorers. Linz hit 15 goals in 30 apps. for Vienna last season, and would link up well with Sionko, as they were former team-mates. Zigic has obviously been tracked by Liverpool, Arsenal and Man Utd. PLG is prepared to bid £7m for him. PLG also wants to sign Antony Reveillere, Jimmy Briand, Yohan Gourcuff and Artem Milevsky (The last 3 impressed him at UEFA U-21 Tournament). Lionel Letizi is expected to sign on Monday or Tuesday, with Steve Mandanda also expected on a 5 year deal.
to the leeds fan that posted "to all those sheff united fans who believe our young defender is going to join you from leeds can you at least spell his name right its killgallon not killgannon and anyway he wont be leaving ER especially not to the blades as he is hugely commited to leeds and he knows he may have to leave leeds but he doesnt want to join sheff united". what a prune you are going to look in the coming weeks.
also, it is not only felow blades that misspell his name, people claiming to know the rumours for all/ several clubs have also done it.
nick montgomery is almost certain to be part of the deal now, good luck monty.
nicky hunt of bolton has been made available for £3m. charlton are interested as a replacement for the likely outgoing luke young. other contenders include premiership new boys sheffield united and fulham
in Germany people are saying that Hamburg have already accepted an offer from Arsenal for Raafael Van De Vaart and he will be in talks with Arsenal as soon as Holland finish their world cup. U heard it hear first
in:woodgate,pay as u play,kuyt,11m,boka,3m,malbranque,5m,
Wenger was at the ivory coast game last night, with his eye on Yaya Toure, expect to see him join his brother at Arsenal after the World Cup for around 10,000,000. Arsenal failed with a bid of 9,000,000 in January, trying to fill the gap in midfield. Yaya will be the long term replacement for Gio Silva. Arsenal also to sign Ribery, don't expect Torres to sign this summer, but maybe in January.
Expect Arsenal to sign English talent this summer. Arsene is lining up either Curtis Davies, Micah Richards, Joey Barton or SWP, becasue of the new Championsleague relagations, which Arsenal are going to win by the way. Come On You Gooners!
At MUFC next season expect to see Carrick and Riquelme in the centre midfield roles. I can't see Ribery joining as 1. he is too exspensive 2.he will probably talked out of it by Henry.
There is a small chance of a new keeper I would love to see Buffon but I think if Juve are relegated he will head straight to Barcelona. I am still unsure on the RVN situation. If he does leave I still believe that there will be no replacement.
Jimmy Floyd H <<< HAHAHA dont make me laugh.
RB is not going to reveal anyone untill after the world cup but when he does expect it to be very thought out signings. Pablo Aimar is not coming to LFC. RAUL will be the bigest signing you heard it here first.
Following Dennis Wise's return from holiday, Swindon fans can expect a busy week next week. The following players have been lined up:
Firstly Pablo aimar is NOT world class because i am a valencia fan and watch all their matches live - the fans now hate him because he has absolutely no passion whatsoever. Secondely, all rumours about David Villa must stop because he has signed a deal until 2011 and has a buy out clause of £65,000,000 because he can score with left, right foot, good header, good from set pieces and can score from half way line. United fans dream on. Valencia also to sign JOAQUIN for about £14,000,000.
Players that Raffa will buy after the world cup are
Dirk Kuyt - A verbal agreement has been reached with feyenoord
Daniel Alves - £8M bid has been rejected Raffa will raise his bid to around £8.5M - £9.5M
Craig Bellamy/ Mark Viduka - Either one is possible with Craig at £6M and Mark at £1-£2M
Heard it here first T1 (NOT THE LIAR V1)
Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic, Fulham and Newcastle are all interested in ex-England star Emile Heskey Birmingham have slapped a £5million tag on his head. But he could go for less with Wigan reportedly offering Roberts, and 3.5 million they are about to table this bid in the next week or so whether they agree to add Roberts to the deal though may be a sticking point with Besiktas also interested and Roberts admitting he would be interested too. Another player reportedly on the move is teammate Michael Forrsell he is being chased by former club Helsinki, Sheffield Utd and Reading. Although it is unlikely Brum would sell two strikers immediately. It is also reported that Morgan could be part of the deal if Forrsell was to go to Sheffield Utd and around a fee of 2.5 million but this is likely to be rejected with Birmingham wanting around the 3 million mark for the former Chelsea striker. On some Birmingham rumors Niall Danns is causing a lot of interest with the second-city outfit although Brum could have a fight on their hands with: Coventry City and West Brom interested in the player. Birmingham is set to announce the signing of Stephen Kelly from Tottenham the fee is belived to be reaching around the £1 million mark. But insiders believe that their will be a lot of add ons plus Birminghams succes in the Championship. It is also rumoured that Birmingham are interested in their former striker Horsefeild but this could be a long way from being true and is probably very unlikely to happen. It is also being noted in the Midlands that former Coventry City defender Callum Davenport is getting increasingly frustrated at not getting enough chances to start for the Premiership outfit. He has been linked with a move to Birmingham and if Birmingham could come up with a fee around the £1 million he would link up with teammate Stephen Kelly who is also joining for £1 million. Birmingham are beginning to form a good relationship with Spurs after agre
eing a friendly against them and already or about to sign one of their players. At present Birmingham only have these defenders: Olivier Tebily, Martin Taylor, Alex Bruce, Marcos Painter and Mat Sadler. Sam Oji could join that crew of players if he agrees a new one year deal. City are also interested in veteran defender David Weir, Weir is seen as a replacement for Cunningham and a strong leader in defense if Birmingham landed him though they face tough competition from neighbors West Broom though.
Spurs will sign 2 midfield world cup stars who are Paredes of Paraguay and Reggina. The 2nd midfielder signing for Spurs will be Didier Zokora of Ivory Coast and Saint Etienne. This may see the departure of Jenas to Portsmouth.
Arsene wenger will be signing Adriano for about 25mil+Campbell. Expect Adebayor to be heading to Italy,with Lazio showing considarable intrest,Wenger is hoping to involve Pandev in the deal despite Lazio's reluctancy. Another player on his way to the Emirates is Franck Ribery, Wenger has personally met with Pape Diof to finalise a massive 15mil deal. Fernando Gago could be singed even if he fails to obtain a work permit, he will loaned to Celta Vigo.Nuri Sahin will certainly be a gunner by the end ofthe week, afee of 4mil upfront and further 5mil depending on preformences,goals and trophies.Players departing are as followed, Reyes to Real for 15mil,Cygan to a French club for less than 1mil and Campbell as makewieght in the Adriano deal.
Sahin(4mil,could rise to 9mil)
Pandev for Adebayor
Campbell as makewieght in the Adriano deal

To the mackem who said that o'neil will become their next manager is wrong! He is going to the premiership. And what have sunderland won recently besides the fizzy pop league? Sunderland are a yoyo team up and down, up and down.
Boro to sign Huth & Gudjohnson
Boro 4 life!
Bad News the 14 million for Michael Carrick from Tottenham. Manchester United ready themselves to up their offer for the England midfielder. However this could be a problem for United because the could spend a hell of alot of money on 1 player and may not have enough for others.
manyoo news ... united have shortlisted 4 midfielders and will sign 2 of the following names Carrick,riqulme,Maschenro and Zokora who impressed SAF they are also trying to sign the new zinedine ie Ribery but will battle with lyon for his signature , kerlon on his way but will be loaned to sporting and the shock of all van nistelroy is not going anywhere SAF has swallowed his pride over ruud and will prob sell saha when rossi looks good enough 2 play as a back up striker ............
Sadly, Rafa Benitez will NOT go for any world cup stars this summer. Instead, the top signing will be Jermain Defoe from Tottenham, for around 15mil, probably just under. Joining him will be Mark Viduka from Middlesbrough for a fee of about 5mil. Yes, Dirk Kuyt will be left for Newcastle. So, Liverpool's attacking force next season will consist of Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Mark Viduka and Robbie Fowler. Not bad at all. Elsewhere, Daniel Agger will break into the first team and partner Jamie Carragher in defence, while the arrivals of Fabio Aurelio and Gabriel Paletta will rejuvenate the back four. In midfield, Mark Gonzalez will see much action on the left wing, while the right wing problem (Luis Garcia ain't a winger...) will be somewhat solved with the signing of Steed Malbranque from Fulham for perhaps just under 10mil. This is all. NEW SIGNINGS AND ARRIVALS: G.Paletta(CB), F.Aurelio(LB), M.Gonzalez(LWG-return from loan), S.Malbranque(RWG), J.Defoe(CF), M.Viduka(CF).
Yaya Toure will sign for Spurs for 8 million. Along with him will be Duff.
Arsenal will ( after being snubbed by Yaya ) sign O'neil and Zigic!
United will not sign Carrick instead they will get Gattusso.
Heart of Midlothian are set to win a battle with local rivals Hibernian for the signature of Lee Trundle. Hearts recognise the need for a striker who can net then lots of goals, and he will fit the bill. He will get around £10,000 a week. This will be the second signing battle Hearts have beaten Hibs with, after winning the signature of Chris Hackett, who due to his lack of 1st team action, will move to Hibs for a nominal fee. Joining him, will be former Jambo keeper, Roddy McKenzie who has indicated he will not be staying at Livingston.
Claude Davis will join the blades for 2.5m nh
After neil warnock leaves germany he will sign centeno from costa rica, who did a good pass.
My dads,friends,window cleaners,dogs,aunts,uncles,brother-in-laws son, works at SUFC and has told me they are close to signing paul parry, for 2m
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will be looking to bolster his squad this summer following the signings of Tomas Rosicky and Alexandre Song. Although Wenger has denied interest in making any more signings, the Gunners are interested in signing Chelsea defender William Gallas and Atletico Madrid frontman Fernando Torres. Forget about all the talk surrounding David Trezeguet and Gianluigi Buffon, though, as Wenger and the Arsenal board are united in their decision to not make a move for those players.
German champions Bayern Munich will complete the signing of Juventus winger Mauro Camoranesi this week. Juve face relegation to Serie B after their match fixing allegations, and Camoranesi is set to replace Chelsea-bound Michael Ballack in Munich. Bayern have already signed young German forward Lukas Podolski and are still interested in signing three or four more players this close season.

MUFC NEWS - this is no nonsense proper news on the great MUFC's transfers and if not shown will make all you miss out on real news. FIRST - we will 100% get 1central midfielder before August and unless there is a huge suprise it will be either Carrick/Mascherano/Diarra, SECOND - another signing will depend on the V.Nistlerooy situation, if he goes Ferguson will bring in a striker out of Klose/Bellamy/Torres/Huntelaar, if Ruud stays Ferguson will sign a creative flair player out of Riquelme/Arteta/Ribery/Lennon, THIRD - as Ferguson LOVES Gudjohnsen(tried to sign him just before Abrahmovic took over Chelski) and he fits both catergories (Striker or creative attacking midfielder) we will try to sign him whatever but he prefers Barcelona. FOURTH - regarding the next great Brazilian Kerlon, yes MUFC have shown interest but we are FAR from a deal and the speculation is just so Cruzerio can start an auction, but if we get him he will be straight to Sporting Lisbon for two years, FINALLY FITH - most likely we will sign the 1midfielder Carrick and Ruud will leave but Ferguson will wait until January to sign someone else giving Rossi and our central midfielders (Scholes/Smith/Fletcher) a chance otherwise Nolan/Reo-coker/Arteta/Bent/Torres/Ribery/Riquelme will come in (players not in Europe and depending on their own situations and form). Leaving will be only Miller and a few loans, Foster will stay at Watford, if we sign two central midfielders Fletcher will go out on loan. This is 100% true i am in the media and an Old Trafford regular familiar with the MUFC people including our great manager. MUFC UNTIL I DIE

Mladen Krstajic will move to Spurs next season as Martin Jol admires him massively as a defender and branded him "One of the best defenders in the world cup". Spurs will also sign Dutch defender Khalid Boulahrouz as competition for Stalteri at right back.
