Ed, do you know of any Bolton Wanderers rumours apart from the players from Real Madrid {editor's note – I don't have much, just that Bolton have rejected a number of offers for Cahill, I was told over £10m but I can't confirm that. Coyle is looking for a partner for Cahill, as he doesn't feel that either O'Brien or Knight are good enough, one or both of them will be shifted out the door if possible.}

Blackpool are currently enquiring about Claudio Morel Rodrguez after an impressive performance at the world cup. Morel is thought to want to try his hand in Europer and more specifically England and this may offer a good oppurtunity for him before he retires (currently 32). Expect this one to happen

Check out the photos of Romelu Lukaku that have been posted on facebook of him in a Chelsea shirt. Apparently he was on a stadium tour open to the public but a move is imminent with the possibility of a season long loan back to Anderlecht. He is a self confessed fan(probably due to Drogba) and is pictured in the dug out and pressroom in the shirt. Can be seen on daily mail online.

Manu to sing these players according to other websites

benzema either on loan or swap deal for vidic but lets get real whens the last time we seen a swap deal like that

stefhan defour which i think is very under rated midfielder who would fit in well at united

and ozil which could be tricky after hes show at the worl cup a lot of the top clubs will be after him

what do you think (e.d) do you think these have any truth {editor's note – I did think Defour would join United this summer, Fergie must be giving him a bit more time to get over the injury. The Benzema deal could suit both teams, but I am not convinced it will happen. Ozil is looking less likely as he seems set to run his contract out and leave on a free next summer.}

Hi ed been away for a while and out of the loop, any concrete everton news? what happening with pienaar and arteta!

ps spoke with mick doyles brother this afternoon but he wouldn't tell me anything about a move as it might jepordise it.

Kurajan {editor's note – Arteta looks set to stay now, as does Pienaar, I think you can thank his dreadful performance in the World Cup for that. I will have to apologise to someone if he does sign a new contract, when he told me that he would I laughed at him!}

MANCHESTER UNITED TRANSFERS

Must laugh at some of the rumours posted on this site. Along with the plausable rumours that get some stick because people predending they know better, as their sisters gerbils, brothers cousin was once held by SAF and at the same time as him saying to Martin Ferguson "Go and buy that Messi fellow bruv".

Anyhow, I was the guy who stated about 10 weeks ago; "And here's the shocker, SAF is actually looking at Mario Balotelli, as he feels that he can control the young star, get him for what he feels is a reasonable price, etc, etc" (Ed if you could confirm please, that would be great pal).

It's still on the cards the Balotelli transfer, however it's not because United want to sign him.. it's a smoke screen to distract Manchester City from the player whom United are most interested in, and determined to purchase. The player in question is a young kid called Paulo Henrique (Santos). United have been tracking Paulo for a while now, and would probably have had a deal in place a lot sooner, if it wasn't for the fact that Manchester Ciy have first refusal on young Henrique (part of the Robinho loan deal I believe). The distraction attempt is because Manchester City's 'first refusal' date expires on the 4th August 2010 and United hope that this Balotelli saga will continue and run upto this date. On the expiry date, United officals will go in for their man hoping for a quick deal, before Manchester City find out, and come in with a transfer bid for £764m {note some slight sarcasm!}.

From what I know of Paulo Henrique, he's a wonderful AM, early twenties, with a hint of Zidane about him. Outstanding vision, excellent linkup play, very creative and has a cracking shot also. I believe he was on te 7 player standby for the Brazil squad during this years World Cup, and was unfortunate not to be named in the final squad.

Thanks, and await some idiot to put me right because he used to be a mouse, and last week {whilst looking for cheese} stumbled into SAF office, and whilst nibbling on a biscuit crumb, heard SAF on the phone saying to the Real Madrid President {whilst he ate the biscuit the question} "I'll give you £86m for Kaka, and some free tickets for the Edinburgh Tattoo!"

WF Red Devil {editor's note – I can't confirm it because you don't leave an email address to confirm it against.}

Everton News !!

Just talked with my mate who works as hospitality at the Joe Mercer suite and he says that a golfing event is being held with Everton versus Liverpool with past legends and todays players playing in fourballs with a new signing yet to be announced supposedly playing .

He said he was talking with Steve Round (assistant manager) before he jetted off to Oz and he told him that Arteta will sign another deal yet Pienaar is stalling, although a poor world cup campaign and the interest diminishing he will sign a deal in the reigion of £55,000 per week.

He said on the way out would be joseph Yobo for a relatively low price and Ayegbeni Yakubu with a forward coming in along with a defender.

"Villa Also Release Jonathan Hogg due To A Long Term Injury Crises.

Hogg Will Recive £100,000 in Compansation."

Hogg is still on the Reserves team list.. There's nothing about an injury on the actual Villa website and nothing about him being released..

 

13 Jul 2010 21:09:15
Any news on Dan Gosling. I know hes available on a free? Why isn't there a scramble for his signature? Young talented Englishman?? Unless hes only talkin to teams where he'l actually play (i.e. Newcastle) {editor's note – two reasons – 1. he has a cruciate ligament injury ruling him out probably for the rest of the year 2. Everton are making an appeal against the decision to give him a free transfer.}

MAJOR LIVERPOOL NEWS FRESH FROM SCOTLAND ROADERS!
I have seen Danny Murphy come out of Melwood today! I think the fans may turn on Hodgson if we sign him back. I have also heard about a young argentine Ever Banega, who plays for Valencia, was a target for Rafa but as a deal was close during his sacking, Hodgson may see him as a good replacement for Mascherano, who I believee is ready to leave (let him go if he doesn't want to wear the red of Liverpool) I honestly reckon Gerrard and Torres will not leave. Torres owes us a season for the amount of injuries he has had.

Scotty Head, Luke McGann!! YNWA!

Leicester will announce that the club is being taken over tomorrow by an Asian consortium. They will give Sousa 5m to spend and he try sign Jay Simpson, 2 of (3 if Oakley joins Southampton, Charlton or Sheff wed) , Buzsaky, Colace, Andr Castro and Pratley. He is also looking at bringing in Waghorn.

Also, DJ Campbell could be joining the club he supports, QPR, and it is likely that he will be involved in a swap for Buzsaky or Ephraim.

Lloyd Dyer, Nicky Adams, Robbie Neilson, Ash Chambers, and Craig King are likely to be told to find a new club and Luke O'Neill will complete a loan move away from Leicester with tranmere the likely destination.

Robert Ambrusics, Jorrin John and 2 other prospects will also go out on loan. Aman Verma and Jeffrey Schlupp will be involved in the whole preseason with the first team and are likely to be involved this season.

Fryatt is being lined up by Wolves if Doyle leaves the club.

To Jonny Blackboots.

Interesting Rumour, ..have to question the credibility of your source however, meeting Fergie in Manchester to discuss Mario Balotelli would be pretty tricky since I believe he's in the US. More likely he'd be discussing any deal with David Gill. That said would love to see Balotelli in a UTD shirt, ..supremely talented, albeit completely bonkers also! Although I think Fergie would be the most able to nurtue him.
As for Ibrahimovic, ..he makes Berbatov look energetic, did you not see that charity / testamonial a couple of years back (Where Christiano scored an awesome frre kick), Ibrahimovic stepped on the pitch and vanished into mediocrity quicker than David Blaine!!
Let's hope City are looking at him and subsequently wasting yet more of there owners money, ..let's face it they're short on strikers!!
I'm wondering how City's stadium upgrades are going, ..will the worlds longest bench be ready in time for the new season!!

where do you muppets get this , you people must live in a fantasy world

lawwell is in the process of down sizing us even further and with the s unable to spend neither will we
lennon will replace anyone leaving celtic with sub standard replacements , the fact he let boruc go without even making a statement shows he's nothing more than a yes man and the cheap option as usual

disillusioned bhoy artur boruc CSC legend!!

 

13 Jul 2010 20:44:15
Dont expect buzsaky to be leaving for Leicester, he is rated by Warnock. Sousa has NEVER seen him play, he was injured throughout his whole reign. Sousa would get hogan ephraim easily if he wasn't warnocks love child

 

13 Jul 2010 20:48:33
Joe Cole isn't going to Arsenal.

It's out of Spurs and Liverpool.

Being honest though, would he rather play in a team which has Torres and Gerrard, or Defoe and Modric?

 

13 Jul 2010 20:53:41
Arsenal: Schwarzer & Mexes & J.Cole

ChelseaOzil(maybe) (would of been Torres but due to injury not till next summer)

Man United Mario Boatelli

Man CityIbrahamovic

Real Madrid Maicon or A.Cole

Editor you got any news on any of these dealing due to heard lots about each but not 100% sure to be honest

also heard that Pique and Puyol were paid 10,000 each to put the Barca shirt on Fabregas {editor's note – that last bit is complete rubbish, it has been a running joke in the Spanish camp about Cesc being the future of Barca and it was a prank, nothing more and nothing less. The only ones that might happen, in my opinion, are the Schwarzer and Ozil ones. Though I am not even going to pretend to have a clue what City or Madrid will do, neither of them make any sense with their dealings.}

What is with all these absurd Rangers signing targets that keep getting posted? Rangers are downsizing to save money and won't be able to buy so many players. That means no Gattusso!

Chris Eagles is possible but still more likely to stay in England.

Craig Conway is asked about and Gers were willing to pay 750k but not enough. This story will go on but an agreement is possible before August.

James McArthur is likely but still to agree a fee. I said on here 3 weeks ago Gers would sell Thomson and look to replace him with this lad. Like for like and saves on wages.

Other than these deals Gers are not looking to buy players. Sure they want to but no money. They will conclude deals nearer end of August once teams have signed players and others become surplus and cost less money. Youth will be used and we will be all the better for it3 cheers

so did i..thats what was on the official website the other day in the media news section..but came across an interview from june there a min ago and he said "Until now, no official proposal from the Corinthians came to me. But my idea is not now to return to Brazil.

"I am well adapted to European football and the only thing I think about is changing time to have more opportunity."

i hope we don't let him go.he seems like a good keeper..although who would want to play second fiddle?

db9 {editor's note – he did only want to return because of an illness in the family or something, obviously the situation has improved.}

As reported by radio clyde today.

Kevin Thomson should sign for boro tomorrow.He won't be missed we have edu , mc culloch, davis and fleck who can all play there.

Ranger trying to complete signing of chris eagles from burnley. i hope this does happen would be a good signing for the club

From a ex player i know gers legend. only what ally is telling him what they want but as you know you don't always get what you want.

bougherra will leave webster seen as a replacement.

velicka will leave they will try to use him as a swap to complete an spl signing not sure wich one.

They do want mc arthur but that depends on how much accies want.

riorden is also interesting them but again depends how much hibs want.

they are trying to bolster the squad with a few epl/championchip loan signings
and he also said expect to see an ex player back this season or next but it will happen

the formby golf links course is being used for the qualifiers so i need more proof please

Tottenham are unlikely to make any big summer signings unless they can generate interest and funds through the sale of Bentley and Pavlyuchenko. Although Villa are keen on 8 million Robbie Keane, it doesn't give them enough. So they are making an all out effort to get Joe Cole and Craig Bellamy with the funds generated from the Keane departure. Redknapp will then turn his attention in getting a centerback, with the injury concerns of woodgate and king. Likely targets include Matthew Upson, Micah Richards and Ricardo Rocha of Portsmout

what a pile of st you have spouted here! spurs have enough money to spend regarding the sales of players mentioned also as for the players you mentioned being associated with us! upson?? rocha? we only just sold him to them! he was and is a poor player, but the rumour regarding richards is a goer

I can inform all rangers supporters that this is just the start of players leaving which is shocking considering the size of the club. been told kenny miller will be leaving for bolton wanderers for 1.5 million and madjid bougherra is being touted about clubs for 4.5 million which is well below his true value also danny wilson is wanting out before the season starts. i am in shock and i really love my club but no player is bigger than the club we must look to youth now. champions league this season will be a disater again. the ins will be chris eagles, derek riordan, and stefano okaka on loan from roma and mark reynolds from motherwell.

 

13 Jul 2010 20:29:41
Rumour has it that 17 year old belgian striker romelu lukaku is on the verge of signing for chelsea from anderlecht.

 

13 Jul 2010 20:31:18
Possibility that Andy Carroll (Newcastle) will be signing for Rangers, the lad has a reputation but Walter Smith thinks he can get the best out of him and that he would take the SPL. by storm, Peter Loverkrands has convinced Carroll that a move to the Scottish Champions would enhance his career and give him the experience of Euro. Champion League football.

"Blackpool fans, don't get too excited over Dekel Keinan. He went on trial with Russian champions Rubin Kazan last week, and was not signed up. If he's not good enough for them, then he may not be good enough for you."

Rubin Kazan played in the Champions League as Russian Champions last season and reached the last 16 having drawn 00 and lost 21 to Barcelona in the group stages. Eventually went out after two legs and extra time to Wolfsburg. We had Alex Baptiste who cost 25k from Mansfield at centre half in the playoff final.

"Italian media reports that Lecce has bid 1.2m for 50% stake in LFC's Nemeth, which seems a poxy amount to me if it were true.{editor's note I am pretty sure that players in this country are not able to be part owned by other clubs, so the Nemeth story would be more paper lies.}"

I'm pretty sure no english club can part own a player, so perhaps would suggest lecce are looking for another italian club to coown with. Either way they can stick that poxy offer where the sun doesn't shine :)

Too right but with christian purse strings at the helm I think he will be sold.
Rumors has it that he, plessis and el zhar are staying behind (training camp) to complete their transfers.

Covers our LB problem although with insua goin fiorentina it means they have 3 first team LB's insua, pasqual and vargas would like to see cash plus insua deal for vargas.
Also reinforces midfield LW in particular and central midfieeld positions

This must be a joke . Liverpool can hardly afford any of them players !! Why would Cisse come back to Liverpool ? Steven Defour will cost around 1012 million . Also Ever Banega will cost more and he will probaly leave to a Champions League team .

My Better Half has just called me from the Britannia Stadium (there for a work 'event') to say she's just seen Stoke City's new signing.

Knowing nowt about football, she hadn't a clue who he was, but just said he was a "big, black guy".

Figueroa? Heskey? Carlton Cole?

rule out heskey hes on holiday in dubai i was at manchester airport week last thurs and was jetting off there with his mrs

Arsenal are going to sign the follwing players:
Joe Cole;
Subotic;
Balotelli;
Neuer or Steklenberg.

This are going to really provide us with the experience we need and also help us become chapions again!

Man U Latest

Strikers: Bollatelli's agent met with Manchester United officials in Amsterdam and it looks like further talks will be held in Manchester where there will also be talks with Manchester City!!

It is also rumoured that Ibrahimovichs representatives will be holding talks with both City and United this week!!

Basically whichever manchester team get Bollatelli expect the other to pick up Ibrahimovich!!

Midfielders: Uniteds weakness is central midfield and needs to be fixed before next season gets under way! With growing rumours of Carricks departure SAF will be looking for a suitable replacement!!

Sneijder and Ozil have been linked but both have openly expressed there desire to remain at there current clubs! Ozil looks the most likely out of the two and his german teamates Khedira and Kroos have also been linked!!

A suprise move could be made for the now out of favour Real Madrid star Kaka!! It has surfaced lately that Kaka might be let go with chelsea named as the suposed destination but SAF might make enquiries now that availability has been made known!!

C'mon United

In response to the guy who was asking about who Anton Peterlin and Laurent Manuel are.. Peterlin is a central midfielder who was contracted to everton last season and played 8 reserve games but has never played a first team game for anyone however he is a free agent. Manuel has twice been on trial at portsmouth and has played for hapoel tel aviv and has mde a total of 21 apperances in his career and plays as a right back, he would cost money but nt to much. Both players sound like a gamble. i have heard that Maik Taylor is a target as well as Lee martin. Ed have you heard anything new? {editor's note – for what team mate? Only your email address suggests you are a Man Utd fan, but your post doesn't seem to be talking about them.}

"West Ham can afford him and offered him a contract in the region of 7080k, that's not saying he will sign, but saying we can't afford him is stupid. The owners are looking to be net spenders and a 5 year contract at 80k a week is 4mil. As he's on a free he would only cost that 4mil so it isn't really that much money is it?"

£80,000 x 52 weeks = £4, 160,000

£4, 160,000 x 4 years = £16, 640,000

Back to school with you..

I have it on good authority that J Milner will be a Man City player by the weekend for £26m.
Aston Villa are interested in buying S Ireland but have pulled out of any part exchange deal as Man City are valuing the player at £12m and Martin Oneill is only willing to pay £8m for him.
Expect Aston Villa to go with a bid towards the end of the transfer window.
Aston Villa are also monitoring the situation of N Onuoha and SWP at Man City.

A deal for R Keane is also in place for around £8m when J Milner makes his move, and don't be surprised to see A McGeady move to Aston Villa as he has not travelled with the Celtic squad to the USA.

Some bad news is that E Heskey will be staying at Aston Villa as now the world cup is over he is happy to sit on the bench.

Only Sidwell and Shorey will be leaving.

"Ballotelli is indeed a virus. No club with any regard for team spirit would touch him. However there are two perfect fits in english football City and West Ham, they buy all the st going."

I would say if he is to move to the premiership then city will be his most likely destination, he gets on well with Mancini.
I can't see him being in Rafa's team for long.

Pazzini is on Liverpool's radar. The club must play a waiting game to offload the likes of mascherano before initially bidding around the 15 million mark for the highly rated Italian.

To all the rangers fans gettin all excited bout the prospect of new signings, heres a tip, keep it real lads. the SLIGHT chance u may get Eagles is very slight as bolton, sunderland and wba r also vying for his signature and can undoubtedly better any offer of wages than the gers can. realistically rangers pay structure will block any REAL talents being signed, even on bosmans. gers highest paid player is bougy on 17k a wk..FACT! thomson wanted an extra 5k a wk on top of his current 10k and is now being pushed out the door, does this not show rangers r still just as skint and r filling the fans heads with lies to keep them buying season tickets? get it into ur heads.U HAV NO MONEY!!!

Spurs fans make me laugh. True, they may be signing Joe Cole shortly, but they are never going to sign Milner. He wants to go to City(unfortunate, they are all driven by the money nowadays). Manchester United may just not make any large signings, but expect Sotiris Ninis, and Gary Cahill (depending on Vidic) to come in, if any. If Berbatov leaves (which I strongly doubt, and would not like), the club may just sign another stiker, but no big names. Also, if Michael Carrick leaves, it would probably be to Spurs, and Tom Huddlestone could be included in any potential deal. Asamoah Gyan will go to Fenerbahce, not Liverpool. And finally, Khedira will join Manchester United the season after next. Oezil will not be in the Premier League in the forseeable future.

Unlike a lot of people on here, I'm an agent, with lots of contacts. Therefore, when I say that these will happen, you better believe me, they will.

TEN MEN WENT TO MOW

{I agree that there will be little happening at Chelsea this summer, but i do not agree Aguero is on the cards, Chelsea play 443 and you have Sturridge, Anelka, Drogba, Borini, Kakuka, Malouda and kalou which means Drogba will partner two from this list, there is no room for Aguero. Ashley Cole may leave and if he does he may be replaced with 'Fbio Coentro' Carvalho may be swapped for Bruno Alves but i cannot see much else happening for Chelsea, Matic will replace Ballack, Benayoun has replaced J.Cole, Borini and Kakuka will fill in for Deco and young Kalas will replace injury prone Bosingwa next season.

Editor would you say i am talking sense?} {editor's note – not so sure about Cole being replaced though, surely Zhirkov is his replacement? They have two excellent young left backs as cover.}

I don't post on here very often but i do like to read (for a laugh) the crap the majority of you lot write on here. As for the Joe Cole saga i wish everyone would stop with what they think they know. Fact: Joe Cole is either signing for Spurs, Liverpool or will end up abroad. Not West Ham or Arsenal etc etc..so stop dreaming the rest of you. I am a Spurs fan and i don't think personally we need him.

Fact: Also on Spurs radar is Luis Fabiano, Micah Richards, possibly SWP if Cole deals falls through and Ryan Shawcross (good defender but not world class so unsure why).

Were ment to be getting keogh on load so we won't need vokes, we just paid £1.15 million for billy sharp so we could not afford mccormack, shorey, albrighton and dickinson a the prices you have quoted. tom heaton has just joined cardiff. we couldnt aford korens wages unless he takes a wage cut. and we just got gillett so we won't need hewson.

Norwich are now favourites to sign Simeon Jackson and offer a striker (mc donald or johnson) to them plus cash. Also Norwich will only sign a striker not this cranie guy as the team are in journey. A rumour is saying tom adeyemi to Bradford on a 6 month loan. My source www.newsnowfootball.co.uk
these is a reliable site for all teams trying to find rumours.

To the guy who said:

Ed.Anything for Liverpool FC? I keep hearing about J.Cole in various places. What's the crack with it?

.also I'm a keen admirer of young Aiden McGeady. I think he could do a decent job at Anfield for not a lot of money. {editor's note Cole was offered a deal that is all, the ball is in his court now.}

honestly mate, you don't want Aiden mcgeady. He's way over rated, very seldom has any sort of end product and if kirk broadfoot can dominate you on your home turf then clearly your not a good player.

Rangers for the forseable future will be blooding young players more and more and as a result rangers will only occasionaly dip into the market so don't expect much action for some years.

In response to this utter rubbish:

United will have to sell/loan out 8 more players to meet the new Premier League squad quota. In the current squad United have 25 players over the age of 21.
OUT:


This simply shows a profound lack of understanding of the new rules, so how about you be quite and allow people who know what they are talking about speak.

we can have 25 registered players, 8 of which must be home grown (in england as opposed to United specifically) and any players under the age of 21 on January 1st 2010 don't have to be registed (for the 2010/2011 season). a maximum of 17 of those players can be both over 21 and not home grown. For me, that would leave the current squad similar to the following if we make no further additions and no one else leaves.

Goal Keepers

Van Der Sar, Kuszczak

Defenders

Neville (home grown), Brown (home grown), O'Shea (home grown), Ferdinand (home grown), Vidic, Evans (home grown), Evra, De Laet (may qualify as home grown, not sure on the timing)

Midfield

Valencia, Nani, Park, Carrick (home grown), Scholes (home grown), Fletcher (home grown), Gibson (home grown), Giggs (home grown), Anderson, Hargreaves

Forwards

Rooney (home grown), Owen (home grown), Diouf, Berbatov, Hernandez

That is exactly 25 players.

The following players can be additions to the squad, but don't need to be registered only listing the standout more likely ones

Amos (third choice keeper)

Fabio, Rafael, Smalling

Cleverly, Obertan

Macheda, Welbeck

Other players would be the likes of Petrucci, Eikrem, King, Evans, Gill etc the younger reserve team players.

The only players I can actually think of that is not likely to be registered (and would need to be) is David Gray, who doesn't have a future at United anyway in my opinion.

So basically, every player at United is going to be available for selection either through explicit registration or not needing to be registered. However, if we are to sign any more players this summer (over the age of 21 as of January 1st 2010) we will have to sell or loan a senior player out to make room for them.

I would expect Diouf will go out on loan to bring us down to 24 players (rumours of him going to Bolton on loan). Not sure who else would be in line for heading out on loan.

ED, any truth in the 3 rumours i have heard that lassana diarra will leave madrid because of the way mourinho didn't use him at chelsea and that mascherano is to be swapped straight no cash for him to liverpool, and with van da varrt signing for aston villa for £9£12mil if milner leaves. finally huntelaar to sign for newcastle and get no9 shirt £10mil their big signing {editor's note – I don't think there is any truth in any of those rumours. Jose only left him out for Chelsea because he had better players in that position, I don't think he has many options in defensive midfield at Madrid. I would be shocked if Villa could attract VDV without Champions League football, and I don't believe Newcastle could attract Huntelaar either.}

I really do believe that liverpool will keep mascherano, torres and gerrard. Gerrard has already indicated to roy that he wants to stay and liverpool asking price is way to high for a 30 year old as real madrid have stated today. Torres is attracting intrest from chelsea an man city, chelsea not willing to go higher that 40m (lpool valuation closer to 60m) an city not in champs league. I think nandos heart is still with lpool and he will give roy at least 1 season. and finally unlike gerrard and torres, mascherano does want to leave but the 2 interested clubs are having cash flow problems barca skint and inter have to sell before they buy.
I don't expect liverpool to buy big this summer just a few cheap/free signings and keeping near enough same squad. with most of the current squad giving a chance to inpress roy.. liverpool squad for next year=

GK= reina
calvieri
gulacsi

RB= johnson
kelly

LB= FIGOROA (7M)
INSUA

CB= carragher
agger
krigakos
skrtel

RM= maxi
babbel

LM= JOE COLE (FREE)
reira

CM= Gerrard
mascherano
SCHARNER (FREE)
Aquilani

ST= torres
kuyt
JAVANOVIC (FREE)
ngog


I hope you agree that this is more realistic with lfcs cash problems than all theses fantasy 20/30m players

To the tool who wrote this


Hi, Rumours gathering pace about Chris eagles joining very soon as a right mid which gives steve davis a more of a central role with edu with mcculloch and macarthur back up. a left mid could possibly be riordan or another addition. Rangers are also in the market for another striker to join miller, lafferty, velicka and little.


riordan would never sign for rangers and he stated in the evening news he wants to bang the goal in for hibs in the europa cup so we get a big team next

In reply to:

''Got told rangers are going to sign Stefano Okaka does anyone know if this is true?''

As much as I would like this to happen, i can't see it. Spent part of last season on loan at Fulham and did fairly well. I can see him heading back to Craven Cottage for this season. Still, I hope your right as he would do a good job. Player with a great future. I've heard pne doing the rounds about a loan deal for Federico Macheda of Man Utd on loan as the striker Smith and McCoist want to replace Boyd, but again I think its a long shot.

Too the person who wrote..

"West Ham can afford him and offered him a contract in the region of 7080k, that's not saying he will sign, but saying we can't afford him is stupid. The owners are looking to be net spenders and a 5 year contract at 80k a week is 4mil. As he's on a free he would only cost that 4mil so it isn't really that much money is it?"

Do the maths mate, 80k a week is over £4million a year, that's £20million+ on a 5 year contract!! It's highly likely that he'll go Spurs although I suspect his agent is offering him to most of the top European clubs as well. West Ham are not stupid enough to go and spend this sort of money on a slightly injuryprone player like they have done in the past under different management, i.e Ljungberg and Dyer!!

Liverpool ins/outs this month (Ins)
Giorgio Wijnaldum from ajax 10mil

I'm pretty sure that if Wijnaldum has left FEYENOORD for Ajax then it's unlikely that he will move to Liverpool so quickly esp. if he hasn't given Amsterdam a chance.

Also I don't believe that Cisse will be back at Anfield unless it's as a spectator. The Defour rumour might have some legs as there was an extensive file on him prior to his injury (that's providing that ol' Purplenose allows us to sign him of course as the two are now penpals).

 

13 Jul 2010 16:41:17
3 more signings for arsenal:
1. Gai Assulin available on a free. makes better sense than Joe Cole as is younger, would have much lower wage demands and would not have a hissyfit if he did not play regularly.
2. An experienced GK the names Schwarzer, Handanovic, Frey, etc have been mentioned. most likely seems to be Schwarzer, but i would personally like to see 1 of the other 2.
3. A right sided centreback. will be experienced. if he can cover a fullback position or DCM all the better.
leaving are silvestre, gallas, eduardo, almunia and loan moves for szczesny, wilshere, bartley, eastmond, coquelin(done), watt and sunu.

the squad for next season:
newGK Fabianski Mannone(hg1)
Sagna Eboue Clichy(hg2) Gibbs(hg3, U21) Traore(hg4, U21)
newCB Vermaelen Djourou(hg5) Koscielny Nordtveit(U21) Campbell(hg6)
Song(hg7) Denilson(hg8) Diaby Ramsey(hg9, U21) Fabregas(hg10) Rosicky Lansbury(hg11, U21) EThomas(hg12, U21)
Arshavin Walcott(hg13) Nasri WellingtonSilva(january, U21) Assulin(U21)
vPersie Chamakh Bendtner(hg14) Vela(hg15)



You got this pretty much bang on

New GK is likely to be Frey but I still Wouldn't rule out Hugo Lloris, the doubt is that in a few years when Szczesny has broken through like he is expected to Lloris may limit him to second choice only.

I think the CB is Rafik Halliche.


Also to add to what you said although Ozil said he is staying Arsenal may agree a deal for next summer or buy him now and loan him back for the year remaining at Werder.

Correction to the Hammer Fan who said this

West Ham can afford him and offered him a contract in the region of 7080k, that's not saying he will sign, but saying we can't afford him is stupid. The owners are looking to be net spenders and a 5 year contract at 80k a week is 4mil. As he's on a free he would only cost that 4mil so it isn't really that much money is it?



If you check again, £80k p/w over a 5 year contract is £20, 800,000

This guy is deluded!

"MUFC
I always had the belief that Mourihno will replace Sir Alex and my belief got a oggd backing when Isaw news in CNN IBN that Mourihno has a clause in the Real Madrid contract that he can leave in any summer.Might be this will happen in next year when there will be a massive retirement(Neville, Scholes Giggs, VDS, Wes brown, Oshea(not sure of the last two)).Transfers will happen after consulting with Mourinho.His list includes mainly Maicon, Sjneider, Cambiasso.So MUFC will try for them.Vidic will remain in MUFC as Mourihno will suggest that this is the place to stay for the future and not RM.My first team for 201112 season
Neuer
Maicon Vidic Ferdinand Evra
Cambiasso
Fletcher Sjneider
Nani Bale
Rooney

Sub: Modric, Rafael, Valencia, Evans, Hernandes, Hargreaves, kruzack"

PEOPLE LIKE YOU, REALLY EMBARRASS THE REST OF US UNITED FANS, WHY WOULD O'SHEA AND BROWN RETIRE NEXT YEAR? THEY ARE THE SAME AGE AS CAMBIASSO AND MAICON FOR CHRIST SAKE.

NOT ONE OF YOUR PREDICTIONS WILL HAPPEN, NOT EVEN THE MOURINHO ONE. EXPECT NINIS AND THAT IS IT, WELL UNLESS BERBATOV, CARRICK OR VIDIC IS SOLD.

Is this the same Torres who was photographed with the World Cup in his hand AND a Liverpool scarf around his neck? Almost 250,000 hits on this photo already but maybe a few of those are Chavski fans who want to see what loyalty looks like. LMAO. Sad, sad Abramovich tell him to buy a copy of PES and he can buy whoever he wants to!!

Liverpool are hoping that the injury to Torres hasn't put Chelsea off signing him, even though Hodgson is saying the right things in public, they are keen to get the 50 million for the injury prone star.
With Benitez looking to offer 18 mill plus Cambiasso for Mascherano, Hodgson is looking forward to getting Drenthe and Van de Vaart from Real in a cut price deal of 16 million and using 28 million in buying Suarez from Ajax.
Leaving the owners happy with 24 million they can get their hands on.

Tottenham are unlikely to make any big summer signings unless they can generate interest and funds through the sale of Bentley and Pavlyuchenko. Although Villa are keen on 8 million Robbie Keane, it doesn't give them enough. So they are making an all out effort to get Joe Cole and Craig Bellamy with the funds generated from the Keane departure. Redknapp will then turn his attention in getting a centerback, with the injury concerns of woodgate and king. Likely targets include Matthew Upson, Micah Richards and Ricardo Rocha of Portsmouth.

Aston Villa are awaiting to pocket the 25 million for James Milner before Martin O'niel can do any business. Once completed he will waste no time in capturing the signings of Stephen Ireland, Insua, Keane and McGeady from Celtic.


Chelsea are confident that they will get Torres for 50 million, which could be the first of three big marquee signings. With the imminent departure of Carvalho, Bruno Alves from Porto for 20M could be next on the shopping list..then they have one from three with encouraging signs from the agents of Kaka, Sneijder and schweinstieger could fancy a move but all three clubs are unlikely to sell. So it might have to be one from three on the second list of Khedira, Ozil or Ramirez from Benfica.

RANGERS..

To the guy who posted this
RANGERS NEWS.

Middlesbourgh have signed Rangers midfielder Kevin Thomson for a fee believed to be in the region of £2m.

THE BIG MAN (always in the know) . or someone who read the papers this morning.

Expect to see McCulloch (1M), McGreagor (3/4M), Wilson (1.5m) and Bougherra (4.5m) all to depart by the time the new season starts. coming in will be 3/4 new faces although like everyone else i would only be guessing.

Celtic are also trying to punt McGeady, Hinkel, Samaras & Loovens, and arriving at parkhead is everyone and their granny coz "lennon wants to bring back the thunder", what a joke that guy is.

If you check the time i posted it at you will see that the papers would not be out yet, i think you are a wee bit envious that i got it out before you or are you just a teddy bear with a sore head?

All the talk of Rangers signing Danny Swanson from Dundee Utd for £1million will not be happening now as the young arab has just signed a 1 year extention as below. Rangers had hoped to sign the player for 500k which was turned down as utd were looking for £750k. Rangers said no due to cash issues so he signed a 1 year extension meaning rangers will need to look elsewhere for someone valued at 500k. Mon The Arabs!!

Dundee United have been boosted by the news that Danny Swanson has signed a oneyear extension.

The 23yearold was tied to the Tannadice club until the end of the coming season, but will now stay until the summer of 2012.

Have just heard a rumour from a very good source that Mario Ballotelis agent. 'Mino Raiola' was in manchester to discuss a transfer with Sir Alex Ferguson after United are believed to have agreed a fee with inter, in the region of 2429mil. Apparently united are willing to hand Mario a contract worth 4 million a season. during a 5 year contract. that's all i know on that deal more to follow.

Next deal is a surprise to me but is meant to be a 5050 deal. Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent is also in Manchester to talk with BOTH Manchester clubs about a move to the EPL. the thing about this deal is the agent of Mario Ballotelli and Ibra is the same person, so Mino Raiola is in Manchester to possibly do a deal for two of his players. no idea about fees or anything for this one but ive heard Barca would let him go for around the 30million mark. Who knows more to unfold soon.

more updates when i hear more news.

"Italian media reports that Lecce has bid 1.2m for 50% stake in LFC's Nemeth, which seems a poxy amount to me if it were true.{editor's note I am pretty sure that players in this country are not able to be part owned by other clubs, so the Nemeth story would be more paper lies.}"

I'm pretty sure no english club can part own a player, so perhaps would suggest lecce are looking for another italian club to coown with. Either way they can stick that poxy offer where the sun doesn't shine :)

Olympique de Marseille could be on the verge of a breathtaking coup of signings as Avi Assouly, a journalist close to les Phoceens, has indicated that Luis Suarez and Keisuke Honda could both move to the Ligue 1 champions.

Cesc fabregas has been pictured wearing a Barcelona shirt during celebrations back in spain!
could this mean the deal is done or just some of the other spanish/barcelona players messin around?

If you watch the video Pique and Puyol come from behind him, force him in to it and then Reina holds him, I'd say at least 1 more season with us and then who knows. Fabregas dedicated the world cup win to the Arsenal players and the club and said he was proud to be an Arsenal player.

Alfonso Alves, once of Middlesborough to move to Derby for £3million apparently. It's been rumoured for a while.

And news on Freddy Adu moving to Southampton? He was going to move to the south coast club, what happened there?



Southampton Chairman Nicola Cortese held talks with the players agent. He wanted £26,000 p/w a week (not a major problem, however other squad members Rickie Lambert etc would want parity on wgaes, what would be an increase of 21, 500pw increase on what Lambert is on now). He also wanted a term stating that when the player was fit he automatically played. Cortese and Pardew agreed that it was best to pull the plug on the deal. Proably for the best.

I am close to a relative of Joe Cole and have read so much rubbish about him the last few weeks.

These are the facts
1) He has held initially talks himself with harry Redknapp and Mancini, whilst his agent has met with Arsene Wenger

2) Variatons of contracts have been discussed, but Joe is looking for a central role above anything

3) The deal with Spurs is the most advanced currently

4) Joe WANTS to join Arsenal but is becoming frustrated at the delays.

My gut feeling is Joe will end up at Spurs

Manchester United:
Red Knights to make a bid of around £1.5 billion between September and November. The bid will include the £504 m bond the Glazers took out to be able to help ease the financial situation. The Knights' 7 main members are Jim O'Neill, Keith Harris, Mike Rawlinson, Sir Roy Gardner, Richard Hynter, Paul Marshall and Jon Aisbitt. Each member will be asked to raise £150m each, this totals just over £1billion so in effect the first bid will be worth around £1.554 billion. Keith Harris will be the broker in the deal.

United will have to sell/loan out 8 more players to meet the new Premier League squad quota. In the current squad United have 25 players over the age of 21.
OUT:
Tosic & Foster (Done;£8 & £6m)
Anderson (£14m)
Berbatov (£18m)
Carrick (£12m)
Gray (£500k)

Balotelli (£25m) #9
Ninis (£11m) #12
Hernandez & Smalling (Done; £6m & £8m) #14, #16

(Khedira is being talked to for next season)

Team for next season:

valencia ozil fletcher nani
rooney balotelli

25 Man Squad:
van der sar, neville, evra, hargreaves, ferdinand, brown, rooney, giggs, park, hernandez, vidic, nani, scholes, o'shea, evans, fletcher, valencia, kuszczak,

smalling

Others: Welbeck, De Laet, Evans, Amos, King, Eikrem, Dudgeon, Gill, Stewart, Norwood, Vermijl, Pogba, Brown, Keane, Wootton, Petrucci, Devlin, Brady, Ajose, Tunnicliffe, Morrison.


(Can't Reveal the Source, all I can say is he is high in the hierachy)


IFWT (InFergieWeTrust)

r u out of ur mind mate if u say that Ozil, Ninis & Balotelli are coming, y haven't u included them in 25 man squad. Think thousand times before posting the crap mate.

Because they are under 21 so they don't have to be included in the 25 man squad ;)

To the person who said "Pleased at securing the loan signing of Diego Arismendi from Stoke. On paper it looks good. Anyone seen him play? Understand he's not worn a Stoke shirt too much since his signing. {editor's note the only rumour I have heard is the striker one, and I don't know if I trust it because it was the agent of a player who has been released that claimed Barnsley has approached him about the player. It could have been just a way of making his player look wanted. It was a forward released by Newcastle he claimed they had spoken to about him Frank something or other, I can't remember his surname but I am guessing there haven't been too many strikers released by Newcastle called Frank this season!}"

As a Newcastle fan i can tell you that young Frank Waife Danquah was released from Newcastle at the end of the season, he's 19 and would be a great addition to your squad i'm sure as i was dissapointed to see him go, however we have Nile Ranger so we don't want his progress hampered ;) {editor's note – is he any good then? Only he is supposed be wanted by half the Championship.}

Definately coming is

Jovanovic

No Chance of coming (and I know this as fact !!)

LeBrom James.tall, athletic and quick.but has decided to play for Miami Heat basketball team
Rafael Nadal.lethal Spanish playmaker.but I believe his next destination will be China
Rory McIlroy.Irish youngster with amazing ball skills.but I understand he's opted to play in Scotland next.and before all you gers and bhoys fans get excitied.I have it on good authority that his destination in Scotland is St. Andrews !!

Hope this helps clear a few things up
Korky

Excellent work Korky, but you missed out 1 possible Spurs, Arsenal or maybe even West Ham signing. Veteran Australia Captain Ricky Ponting has been spotted in the London area this morning (My Source is Sky Sports 1) this would be a huge signing for any of these 3 sides especially Arsenal who are looking for someone who can do a job in the middle of the pitch, he can also spray the ball to all parts of the ground.

Celtic to sign Julian Spironi for £1m or even resign David Marshall for £1.7m. Glen Loovens, Georgios Samaras, Andreas Hinkel and Marc Crosas to all leave for combined 56 million. Celtic to sign two centre backs, expected to be Ramis and Sol Campbell. but Campbell looks likely to sign for Sunderland. Mexican meeting up with Celtic in US and to play Right Midfield. 4 or 5 reserve player to make up the rest of the squad and if McGeady leaves then Celtic will sign a Big name striker for around £6m.

Hi, Rumours gathering pace about Chris eagles joining very soon as a right mid which gives steve davis a more of a central role with edu with mcculloch and macarthur back up. a left mid could possibly be riordan or another addition. Rangers are also in the market for another striker to join miller, lafferty, velicka and little.

Rangers team 2010/11:

gk Mcgregor
rb Whittaker
cb Bougherra
cb wilson/wier

Why would he sign for a BSP club when he is easily championship class if not better, also they wouldn't let him go that cheaply (although thinking about it the SWFC board do accept some ridiculously small bids sometimes :)

ARSENAL DEVELOPMENTS:

Joe Cole rumours are also without foundation. Cole is a player Arsenal do not need, yet his salary demands would rival the likes of Fabregas, Van Persie and Arshavin. He is injury prone and we have plenty of midfield depth. He'll end up at Spurs. Talk of a West Ham return is laughable! He may be a lifelong Hammer, but the Hammers can't afford him! Simple.

You clearly know nothing. Joe Cole was a Chelsea fan as a kid but has a soft spot for West Ham as we adored him and as he came through our ranks.

West Ham can afford him and offered him a contract in the region of 7080k, that's not saying he will sign, but saying we can't afford him is stupid. The owners are looking to be net spenders and a 5 year contract at 80k a week is 4mil. As he's on a free he would only cost that 4mil so it isn't really that much money is it?

But some very likely signings that are close to being done if not already completed.

Loic Remy £13mil
Efrain Juarez £3mil
Frederic Piquionne £2mil
Pablo Barrera £4mil

Reported all across the papers but I have heard that all the fee's have been accepted but there are the player contacts and some negotiating about payment plans still to work through.

Once these are secured we will turn to signing another centre back and a goalkeeper. We will also sign another CB if Upson leaves.

Also expect Carlton Cole to leave the club as his knee's are fcked and is turning into the next Ledley King. Stoke are interested but he has already turned them down 3 TIMES but with the constant speculation about more strikers coming in and offer's keep being accepted he is starting to think his future may lie away from Upton Park.

Oh and Ed you can't serious about Stoke being a more attractive position to Cole rather than a London team that is being linked with the likes of Berrera, Cole, Remy and Neymar? And no disrespect to stoke I think they will be more likely to be in a relegation battle than us next season with the player's we will have and a manager that actually knows something about tactic's rand not rely on team spirit, unlike last season with Zola in charge. {editor's note – you won't get all those players, you are dreaming if you think the porn barons will provide the money for them.}

"KlaasJan Huntelaar is considering loan moves to 7 clubs in England Everton, Newcastle, Tottenham, West Ham, Fulham, Aston Villa and (surprisingly) Leeds, which is bizarrely his preferred destination."

Why would you make this rubbish up and why would he pick Leeds out of they teams. And Huntelaar wouldn't go on loan he would be sold.

To all those saying berbatov will be sold this summer to make way for another striker did you not read SAF's official take on this? if you didn't here it is:
"no way, he's a fantastic footballer"

Take it from me (or from SAF) Berba going nowhere this summer and he will be good next season. This doesn't mean that we will not sign another striker. Traditionally MU have had 4 complete strikers so with Rooney, Hernandez and Berba there will need to be another cos owen will leave.
This could be one of the following:
Balotelli, Suarez, Podolski, Benzema

SAF also fancies a CAM but this may depend on how much they get held to ransom for the above. Names being touted are:
Kroos, Ozil, Giovinco, Pastore

To be honest MUFC fans i would be very very patient as it is likely to be on the last day of the window that a player is brought in. reasons for this are money and bloody citeh. clubs will lower costs and are more likely to negotiate on the last days and lets be honest anyone we approach citeh will too, purely and simply to stop us signing them. If this is done last minute like the berba deal (altho citeh tried to hijack this also) then citeh may not have time to match the bid.

What do you think editor? any news on united?

Innes {editor's note – why would Owen leave? I don't understand your thinking on this, and have you forgotten about the likes of Macheda? United have no need to buy a striker unless Berbatov leaves.}

Chelsea linked again to Kaka
West Ham after Campbell
Man City linked to Ibrahimovic £42
Spurs want Tiago for £7 and Liverpool Kevin Prince for same price.

Leicester City are to approach QPR over signing Akos Buzsaky. They are rumoured to be willing to offer an initial £3.25 million for the midfielder.

 

13 Jul 2010 13:45:42
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that many of his world cup players will not be ready to feature in United's first game of the season against Newcastle at Old Trafford.
Expected team v. Newcastle:

GK: VDS

RB: Rafael
CB: Evans
CB: Smalling
LB: O'Shea

RM: Valencia
CM: Fletcher
CM: Scholes
LM: Nani

AM: Giggs

ST: Rooney (if fit and ready), Berbatov or Hernandez

There will be no United signings this summer. Ferguson has faith in his current squad and younger players that he has brought in (Smalling and Hernandez). Unfortunately the situation at United is bad. Ferguson cannot make signings unless completely necessary or if they represent value (i.e. young players whose value will rise). The interest in Balotelli is real but is nothing more than interest. United are 'interested' in hundreds of other players too on a regular basis. There is no concrete offer for Balotelli as his agent has suggested. He is just using United's interest to increase price and value of his player.

Hey ed love, the site.
Just in response to the earlier rumour about Danny Gabbidon, the senior players being released came out last month at WHU and included Franco and Illan but Gabbidon wasn't on it and is still on the official website with the number 4 shirt so I think he is still there. A decent defender but because of his injuries I think he will almost certainly be sold this summer. {editor's note – ok, I just thought his contract ended this summer?}

A few more transfer

Boro have completed the signing of Stephen McManus after spending time there onloan last season and also have reportedly had a bid accepted for Rangers midfielder Kevin Thomson.

Rob Kozluk has resigned for Sheff utd on a 1 year contract after been released by Barnsley

Mascherano's agent has said that he would love move to Inter but nothing has happened yet, as he is looking to speak to Roy Hodgson first.

Sunderland have also enquired once again about Borussia Dortmund forward Nelson Valdez, as they look to build for next season.

While Carlo Nash is to sign for Stoke after impressing Tony Pulis

Also Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is aiming to pip a host of clubs to the signing of 15yearold Slovenian defender Luka Krajnc.

Finally USA Coach Bob Bradley is apparently now favourite to succeed Roy Hodgson at Fulham.

This makes no sense to me at all. If it were the case that Mubadala is to purchase Liverpool, it would leave the club in the procarious position of not knowing when they would be resold for a profit – which at the end of the day is the purpose of Mubadala.

I also very much doubt that the Abu Dhabi government would look kindly on their investment vehicle being used by Sheikh Khalifa for such indulgences.

Hi, Rumours gathering pace about Chris eagles joining very soon as a right mid which gives steve davis a more of a central role with edu with mcculloch and macarthur back up. a left mid could possibly be riordan or another addition. Rangers are also in the market for another striker to join miller, lafferty, velicka and little.

Rangers team 2010/11:

gk Mcgregor
rb Whittaker
cb Bougherra
cb wilson/wier
lb Papac
rm Eagles
cm Davis
cm Edu/mcculloch/macarthur
lm Riordan/conway
cf Miller
cf velicka/lafferty(hope not)/Lee Miller.

what do people think?.

Will be chuffed to bits if we get Parkin. I reckon if we had him with Dickinson it'd work well because Parkin is strong, can hold up the ball as well as flick it on well. Dickinson can get onto the end of flicks and use his speed and finishing to score.

Btw I've heard something about a centre back? Editor? {editor's note – not heard anything about that sorry.}

Petrov in part exchange for McGeady is an absolute non starter, so Celtic fans forget about it.
What is more interesting is the players involved in the kit launch this coming Thursday, Friedel, Cuellar, Dunne, Petrov and Downing, hardly the players to sell shirts. Read what you want into it but I would suggest that all other Villa players are available? What's your thought Editor? {editor's note – it doesn't normally mean anything, they were probably just the players who were available.}

Chinese consortium to bid 1.2 billion for Man Utd

I have it on good authority that a chinese consortium have made a bid to the glazers to take over at old trafford.

They are said to want to sort out the dire financial trouble and see that the club gets even better and doesn't lose it's way.

Take it as you will but would this not be sooooo gooooood for us that we can continue to dominate the premier league once more and take over Liverpools 5 times in europe!!

P.S No stupid idiot would pay that much so keep dreaming Manure fans! ha ha ha..! I bet you were all jumping for bloody joy until the last part! ha ha

On to some real news! Spurs which are the new force under harry to sign Milner for 25 mill and also Joe cole ona free! harry has worked his magic once more.

Liverpool to sign crap, crap and "oh wait!! more crap" Woy hasn't got a clue and you will be out the top 6 for a long time to come.

City will but Pato for 75 mill and also kaka for 35 mill letting SWP and Ireland go to villa.

My top 10 finish for next season

1) Man City
2) Spurs
3) Chelsea
4) Arsenal
5) Villa
6) Man Utd
7) Everton
8) Westham
9 Liverpool
10) Newcastle

About Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan Father taking over at liverpool, hasn't he passed away? Ed could you back me up on this or anyone else?
YNWA JFT96 {editor's note I don't actually know, sorry.}

just to clear this up for once and for all..
Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan owns CityHis father is Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is the ruler of Abu Dhabi, President of the UAE, and is very much alive. Sheikh Khalifa's father was Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, known as the father of the nation, and HE died in 2004I have no knowledge of a take over but if Sheikh Khalifa was to buy Liverpool FC, it would be under the mantle of Mubadala which is the investment arm of Abu Dhabi. This way the FA would not see a problem re ownership (one is private ownership of the son, and the other is corporate ownership/investment on behalf of the soverign fund).

This guy is deluded!

"MUFC
I always had the belief that Mourihno will replace Sir Alex and my belief got a oggd backing when Isaw news in CNN IBN that Mourihno has a clause in the Real Madrid contract that he can leave in any summer.Might be this will happen in next year when there will be a massive retirement(Neville, Scholes Giggs, VDS, Wes brown, Oshea(not sure of the last two)).Transfers will happen after consulting with Mourinho.His list includes mainly Maicon, Sjneider, Cambiasso.So MUFC will try for them.Vidic will remain in MUFC as Mourihno will suggest that this is the place to stay for the future and not RM.My first team for 201112 season
Neuer
Maicon Vidic Ferdinand Evra
Cambiasso
Fletcher Sjneider
Nani Bale
Rooney

Sub: Modric, Rafael, Valencia, Evans, Hernandes, Hargreaves, kruzack"

Okay.

1). Brown (30) and O'shea (29) to retire next year? If you believe that then your'e bonkers! Right back is a position up for grabs at United!

2). You really think that Inter would sell both Cambiasso & SNEIJDER to Man Utd?

3).By your reckoning to buy Neur, Maicon, Cambiasso, Bale and Modric, we'd need to spend in the region of £130m!!

4). Who's Kruzack? lmao.

..

In other news Aidy Boothroyd has taken dutch trialist Orlando Smeekes on a secondary trial period after impressing in Austria whilst on tour with the Coventry City squad. Expect a deal worth around £200k if the striker makes a good impression.

3 more signings for arsenal:
1. Gai Assulin available on a free. makes better sense than Joe Cole as is younger, would have much lower wage demands and would not have a hissyfit if he did not play regularly.
2. An experienced GK the names Schwarzer, Handanovic, Frey, etc have been mentioned. most likely seems to be Schwarzer, but i would personally like to see 1 of the other 2.
3. A right sided centreback. will be experienced. if he can cover a fullback position or DCM all the better.
leaving are silvestre, gallas, eduardo, almunia and loan moves for szczesny, wilshere, bartley, eastmond, coquelin(done), watt and sunu.

RANGERS NEWS

After the £2m sale of Kevin Thomson to Middlesbrough, Walter Smith will step up his efforts to land replacements.

As has been widely reported this morning he hopes to land Chris Eagles from Burnley for the wide right position for around £1m, thus allowing Steven Davis to take up his preffered central midfield role.

Two options being looked at for left mid, these are Craig Conway of Dundee Utd or Derek Riordan of Hibs. With Utd valuing Conway quite expensively the cheaper and more viable option looks to be Riordan who is entering the final year of his contract. The former Celtic player can also play up front which is also appealing to Smith.

As for central mid, it would appear James McArthur of Hamilton Accies is set to move to Ibrox for a fee of around £750,000. Seen as more of a squad player though and will have to fight to command a regular start.

As for strikers to replace Boyd, nothing really in the pipeline. An enquiry was made about David Healy for either a loan move or a price for a permanent move but for whatever reason, Rangers have not followed up this interest.

Unsigned provided a list of seven players Liver pool intend to bid for at 13 Jul 2010 11:27:34:

".....How can Liverpool afford this? Well the £30m from the Mascherano deal and the £15m budget Roy Hodgson has to spend...."

Correct me if I am wrong (perhaps Ed. knows), but my undertsanding of the budget provided to Mr Hodgson has to also cover any additional wages – I assume for the first year of the contract only.

Looking at the seven players, it strikes me that you have added about £250k a week to the wage bill. That would be £13M in the first year.

"Heard this twice now, the latest on the bus this morning. One of the 7 Brazilian trialists at Leeds is Rafael Sobis the ex Betis player. Think he went to some club in qatar after Betis"

Sorbis has re–signed for his first club, Internacional, back in Brazil.

PLYMOUTH fans calm down, the reason all the papers had shinji okazaki moving to home park is a simple answer, recently when okazaki was asked which english club he supported he flippantly said plymouth argyle of course. With argyle the only club to be japanese owned and with big links in japan, it was an easy joke to make. Would have been nice argyle fans but hes valued at 2.6 million on average, well over what the papers said. Huntelaar to Leeds come on lads too much wacky backy.

I was working in an appartment block in old hall street in liverpool today, when david ngog got in the lift, later on i asked the concierge if any other players live in the block, he told me that no players live there, but the new lfc team doctor has just moved in {he flew in from south africa after world cup when australia knocked out} anyway he told the concierge that the club has been sold for some weeks and the buyer is not the man city owner's brother, it is in fact his father! now i don't know if there is any truth in this but the source seems pretty good being that its somebody actually at the club, i also recall a recent post naming this new doc as his source, so all we can do is wait and see, don't forget you heard it here second jongyb



I'm not 100% sure but 99% that the father of these guys is in fact dead so fair play to his passion for the Pool to be buying the club from beyond the grave :)

"KlaasJan Huntelaar is considering loan moves to 7 clubs in England Everton, Newcastle, Tottenham, West Ham, Fulham, Aston Villa and (surprisingly) Leeds, which is bizarrely his preferred destination."

Balotelli will be offered in a straight swap for mascherano. Liverpool after a world class striker to partner torres, and the lad certainly has the potential to be a world beater! He'd be guarenteed a place in lfcs starting eleven, as there is touch much compitition for strikers at man city. Inter don't really want to splash the cash, and it's not a bad deal for Liverpool either.

 

13 Jul 2010 12:14:03
Ed iv seen lots of rumours about Frey coming to arsenal, and seeing as it looks like Boruc has just signed for Fiorentina and won't want a place on the bench, does that mean Frey is on his way? {editor's note – it is very possible but just because Frey is likely to leave it does not necessarily mean Arsenal is his destination.}

Wolves Andy Keogh looks like his on his way out to either Blackpool, Blackburn or Bolton.

ARSENAL DEVELOPMENTS:

SOL CAMPBELLl has been offered a one year deal. The option is there to take his coaching badges and work with the young defenders at the club. He has also spoken to Steve Bruce about a contract at Sunderland this is down to the fact that Fiona Barratt (soon to be his wife) has her company based in Northumberland. He has rejected a contract at Celtic. No decision will be officially announced until the end of July (return from honeymoon).
CESC FABREGAS is more likely to remain at Arsenal than move to Barcelona. Sandro Rossell (The new President) will need to refinance existing loans before the club can afford to make an official bid closer to Arsenal's evaluation of the player (£60m). As Cesc barely kicked a ball throughout the World Cup, the £60m seems excessive. However, Wenger will refuse to do business unless Barcelona meet their demands. This is not expected to happen as Arsenal will not be willing to accept payment via installments. Quite simply, Barcelona are in a financial predicament and unable to put the deal together. No doubt they will return next year and the boring saga continues! All talk of Mesut Ozil is purely media hype and armchair fans spouting rubbish. Joe Cole rumours are also without foundation. Cole is a player Arsenal do not need, yet his salary demands would rival the likes of Fabregas, Van Persie and Arshavin. He is injury prone and we have plenty of midfield depth. He'll end up at Spurs. Talk of a West Ham return is laughable! He may be a lifelong Hammer, but the Hammers can't afford him! Simple.

GREGORY VAN DER WIEL is heading to Bayern Munchen. A deal has pretty much been agreed for £18m. This will mean that Sagna remains an Arsenal player, especially as Real have distanced themselves from Maicon. Wenger missed out should have made an offer BEFORE the World Cup. He had the lad tracked all season so knew how good he was. Wasted opportunity.

One more CENTRE BACK will arrive in the next few weeks. This is likely to be either PER MERTESACKER NEVEN SUBOTIC or SERDAR TASCI. All three are right footed and have had scouts track them all season. All 3 will be pricey, but the club has the money available for the right players. Those on here claiming 'Wenger will never pay that kind of money rah rah rah'. Think again! He's just paid the best part of £10m for Laurent Koscielny who won't even be first choice next season. Subotic will be the most expensive option and any deal for him may involve Tomas Rosicky moving back to Dortmund.

MARK SCHWARZER's likelihood of joining is now minimal. A bid was made but then Hodgson left the club. With no announcement on the replacement, all transfer activity is on hold. Wenger is now more likely to bid for Maarten Stekelenburg (Ajax) or Manuel Neuer (Schalke 04).

Arsene Wenger stated at the end of the season that he would only be looking at experienced players to strengthen the first team. He knows this summer will result in an expensive outlay Gallas, Campbell, Silvestre, Merida and Senderos all left on free's, so he knows at least four positions need cover. Arsenal have the money to buy the best how many other clubs can say the same?

RANGERS NEWS.

Middlesbourgh have signed Rangers midfielder Kevin Thomson for a fee believed to be in the region of £2m.

THE BIG MAN (always in the know) .. or someone who read the papers this morning.

Expect to see McCulloch (1M), McGreagor (3/4M), Wilson (1.5m) and Bougherra (4.5m) all to depart by the time the new season starts.. coming in will be 3/4 new faces although like everyone else i would only be guessing.

Celtic are also trying to punt McGeady, Hinkel, Samaras & Loovens, and arriving at parkhead is everyone and their granny coz "lennon wants to bring back the thunder", what a joke that guy is..

Now that Assulin to Arsenal rumour has surfaced again, does anyone have any detail apart from common sense? Of course he looks tempting to AW being a free agent and I doubt that his wage demands would be too high. The bloke himself should be tempted by a move to The Arsenal, as he is talented and AW can offer something that other managers can't a fast track to the first team. But this is all common sense.. Ed, do you have anything on this rumour? {editor's note – nothing other than hearsay and conjecture like yourself.}

Javier Mascherano is set to hand in a transfer request upon his return to Liverpool, with Inter the likely destination with a bid of £30m and RENE KRHIN to be accepted. Palermo have bid £3.5m for Lucas Leiva, but will Liverpool will not consider anything less than £7.5m. Roy Hodgson was very impressed with EDINSON CAVANI at the World Cup, and will only consider selling Lucas is a deal for Cavani can be struck.
Once Mascherano's deal is completed the following bids will be made.
 Edinson Cavani £10m plus Lucas
 Scott Parker £10m
 Steven Defour £12m
 Wayne Bridge £6m Will leave following Kolarov and Boateng arrivals
 Stephen Ireland £7m David Silva has taken his place
 Paul Scharner free £30k p/w 2 year contract
 Joe Cole free £85k p/w 4 year contract
How can Liverpool afford this? Well the £30m from the Mascherano deal and the £15m budget Roy Hodgson has to spend. Hodgson wants his squad to look a little like this
GK Reina, Cavalieri,
RB Johnson, Darby, Kelly
LB BRIDGE, (Agger)
CB Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Kygiakos
CM Gerrard, Aquilani, PARKER, DEFOUR, SCHARNER
LW JOVANOVIC, Riera, Babel

3 full bids have been received by BarCap for ownership of LFC. These bids have passed through the vetting process at BarCap to prove their legitimacy and ensure the financials are valid ie; that the bidder will be able to buy the club without putting the club in debt and will be able to fund the new stadium build. The bids have been forwarded to the LFC board and are now being considered. It is not expected that a sale will take place as a direct result of these initial bids but that a prefered bidder will be identified, allowing further negotiations to take place. It is anticipated that a sale should be concluded by the end of September although this is by no means guaranteed

Manchester United:
Red Knights to make a bid of around £1.5 billion between September and November. The bid will include the £504 m bond the Glazers took out to be able to help ease the financial situation. The Knights' 7 main members are Jim O'Neill, Keith Harris, Mike Rawlinson, Sir Roy Gardner, Richard Hynter, Paul Marshall and Jon Aisbitt. Each member will be asked to raise £150m each, this totals just over £1billion so in effect the first bid will be worth around £1.554 billion. Keith Harris will be the broker in the deal.

Some UKbased transfers from the number 1 source who broke the Benayoun to Chelsea, Koscielny to Arsenal and Billy Sharp to Doncaster transfers!

Fabregas will not be moving to Barcelona unless they bid £45m. It's that simple.

Joe Cole is 50/50 between joining Tottenham and helping them get to the Champions League group stages or joining Arsenal and helping them finally win a trophy.

West Ham have lodged a bid for Chopra from Cardiff.

Blackpool will add Simon Church from Reading to their growing squad, along with Robert Snodgrass from Leeds and Rob Earnshaw from Forest.

Gael Kakuta will go on loan to Villareal from Chelsea.

Ashley Young will move from Aston Villa to Liverpool, and they will replace him with Simao from Athletico Madrid.

Gary Hooper is all but signed for Celtic, after Leeds failed to make a high enough bid. £1.75m + addons. They are also set to sign Heskey from Villa.

Sunderland is Sol Campbell's preferred choice of destination, but Arsenal will make one final offer for him to stay.

Reading will complete the signing of David Nugent from Portsmouth, while Michail Antonio will move from Reading to Swansea.

KlaasJan Huntelaar is considering loan moves to 7 clubs in England Everton, Newcastle, Tottenham, West Ham, Fulham, Aston Villa and (surprisingly) Leeds, which is bizarrely his preferred destination.

Manchester City have apparently been given the green light to speak to Edin Deko. A fee of around 40m is enough to trigger Deko's release clause in his contract, which Man City appear to be able to match.

Meanwhile Mario Balotelli is puportedly a target for Manchester United. Ferguson has a history of taking troubled youngsters under his wing and developing them; such was the situation with Gabriel Obertan. Although if financial heavyweights Manchester City become active in their interest of the young Italian forward, the blues might outprice the Red Devils for his signature.

And news on Freddy Adu moving to Southampton? He was going to move to the south coast club, what happened there?

Have just heard that west hams bid for remy was accepted and he is on his way to us. Rob green to the arse or fulham. Barrera deal sorted. Gabbidon to blackpool. In return first dibs on charlie adam. Expect the best of last years pompey team. Freddie, nadir and the prince plus jamo if pompey offer too little money {editor's note – isn't Gabbidon out of contract? If so you won't get anything from that deal and Belhadj has already signed for a club in the Middle East.}

AVFC

Ins and Outs

Robbie Keane would have been announced by now, but popeye is interested in Curtis Davies. They are trying to agree a settlement figure net of Davies. Shame, I think Davies could become a very good player. Keane should be a god signing though.

Luke Young off to West Ham. Again a good player and the best right back at the Villa who can also cover at LB.

Milner off to Man City who have placed a cash bid of c£26m. Villa want Ireland and perhaps Onuha. Villa believe MC's value of Ireland is too high, so expect a cash bid for Milner to be accepted, and then a late bid for Ireland before window closes.

Emile Heskey I am told he is staying!!

Sidwell being sold for £3.5m; probably to West Ham or Fulham

Scott Parker Villa are likely to enquire, but West Ham have stated he is not for sale (may depend on relations if WH sign Young and Sidwell)

Re:

I was working in an appartment block in old hall street in liverpool today, when david ngog got in the lift, later on i asked the concierge if any other players live in the block, he told me that no players live there, but the new lfc team doctor has just moved in {he flew in from south africa after world cup when australia knocked out} anyway he told the concierge that the club has been sold for some weeks and the buyer is not the man city owner's brother, it is in fact his father! now i don't know if there is any truth in this but the source seems pretty good being that its somebody actually at the club, i also recall a recent post naming this new doc as his source, so all we can do is wait and see, don't forget you heard it here second jongyb

Great rumour I hope you're right just a few minor concerns.
Are you really expecting us to believe that the club doctor practices from his apartment rather than from Melwood?
If not do we assume that an Aussie doctor has struck up a quick friendship with some young footballer and it was a social call? Not impossible but unlikely.
Finally do we assume that a newly appointed doctor has firstly been given that sort of information and secondly that he would jeopardize his career by blabbing it to a concierge I know Aussies are a gobby lot but that would take the biscuit.

LFC
Liverpool to announce 2 new signings by end of next week:
Joe Cole (free, 85k a wk) will sign due to lack of "love" shown from Arsenal and Spurs don't have the wage structure to support his demands and there is too much competition for the positions that Cole wants.
Maynor Figueroa (6m possibly rising to 7.5m) despite interest from stoke he couldnt turn down a move to such a big club.

These will be funded from Benayouns transfer and the money given to Hodgson when he took over. From then on he can only spend what he makes from player sales untill new owners are found in late August.
Expect one or two big signings from LFC before the transfer window shuts in late August

Definately coming is

Jovanovic

No Chance of coming (and I know this as fact !!)

LeBrom James..tall, athletic and quick..but has decided to play for Miami Heat basketball team
Rafael Nadal..lethal Spanish playmaker..but I believe his next destination will be China
Rory McIlroy..Irish youngster with amazing ball skills..but I understand he's opted to play in Scotland next.and before all you gers and bhoys fans get excitied..I have it on good authority that his destination in Scotland is St. Andrews !!

Firstly to the Donny Rovers fan who said it was rumoured you were signing Tom Heaton..he already signed a 3 yr deal with Cardiff in June.also Ross McCormack for 1 m ..no chance

Cardiff have paid the tax bill or agreed payments with HMRC and the winding up order scheduled for 11th August was withdrawn.however as they have not filed the Accounts ending May 2009 the embargo is still in place until they do..which is being is being arranged by the N

 

13 Jul 2010 08:50:33
Once embargo is lifted Cardiff will only sign Free or loans unless someone is sold. The new Malaysian owners are being prudent.and trying to keep the squad together and add some loans etc ..and get the club back on a sound financial footing..so unless a club meets the valuation of a player he aint going..in my opinion if someone came in for Whittingham with 3m he will go but only with a substantial chunk up front and not many clubs can or are willing to do that

WC is over so the transfer market should pick up. Man City possibilities
Milner not convinced, should have been done by now.
Dzeko if Roberto really wants him its just down to haggling now
Maicon with Mourinho declaring 'no interest' City will up theirs and the player may reconsider
Torres unlikely now injured again is he the new Hargreaves?
Balotelli possibly Roberto likes players he knows
expect 3 of these to happen
Possible outs..
RSC injury prone
SWP good lad but greedy and weve better options in Silva and Johnson
Onouha sadly solid player and City through and through hope he stays
Richards self proclaimed 'king of bling' never lived up to the promise and hype error prone
Bellamy clash with Mancini
Ireland one fantastic season in an average team, otherwise poor, didn't step up.

Finally Robinho will stay no one wants him as he's lazy, tempramental and unreliable

Stop making things up muppet. Doncaster do not have the budget for the Shorey or McCormack fees and definately cannot afford either of their wages or Koren's.

Roy hodgson is attempting to go for old benitez target ever banegaand has been speaking to steven defour who has stated he prefers the merseyside club to any others in the premier league
Would be two quality purchases if you ask me!

I believe Man Utd have been monitoring him for the past couple of seasons. SAF even spoke to him and wished him a speedy recovery form his injury. So I doubt he prefers the merseyside club to any other in the premier league. If you bother to investigate before posting you might not look like an idiot.

Ashley Cole will go to Real to join up with Morinho This is due to a fall out with Terry who shopped revelations about Cole to the papers, in exchange for the papers cooling off their interest in his own extra marital affairs.

Balotelli will go to Man U above Man City if he has a choice because he wants to play under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Joe Cole transfer is still split 3 ways, although a paper (forgotten which) has printed that his agent is now looking abroad.

Torres injury isn't expected to keep him out for long so Chelsea interest is still there, although they will have to offer more than £50mil to get him.

Asamoah Gyan has been linked with a £20mil move to Liverpool.
Ed, what do you think of this rumour? I think it would be a terrible signing and Hodgson is unlikely to make such an expensive and risky transfer. {editor's note – I don't believe it for a moment, there is no way Hodgson will spend 20m on Gyan with the budget he has at his disposal.}

Fellow Gooners.please stop with all the Ozil, Cole, Melo, Gourcuff, Dzeko, etc wish lists.these signings are NOT happening, Wenger has come out and said so himself! The next two Arsenal signings will be Neven Subotic & Maarten Steklenburg. Wenger has said all along that he will spend big on strengthening the squad, and what we need is a GK, CB ( right footed), and a DM.

villa should get ready for a busy last few weeks of the transfer window . they won't start for a few weeks but it will hot up.
oneill knows the main issues. a defensive mid, an creative mid and a striker. expect a winger to come as well.
the three irish are all but dunne. ( get it. richard dunne ) keane, ireland and mgeady. its no secret mon is an admire of these three.
on top those expect witsel OR parker for the holding role. witsel is apparently preferd more as he is younger, cheaper and built better to be a defensive mid.
huntelaar is a possibility but eduardo could come as well. it depends on what carew does. villa will see at least 1 striker coming in and oneill is considering following up millans offer with cash from milner sale.

I have keeping a keen eye on this forum for a while now and some of it makes for some comical reading. Scott McDonalnd, coming to Rangers; please be serious..I need only state one fact; Can you really see Walter Smith bring in a complete flop. Although we have no money; this in no way means we are depserate.

Although I don't like saying this, being a die hard Gers Fan; A big congratulations to Neil Lennon & Celtic on the Joe Ledley signing..Excellent young player with a very exciting career in front of him.

One big question, I know that Rangers will have to make Free or Loan signings in order to bloster our ranks; however does anyone have any realistic rumours for us true fans?

Possible In's;

David Goodwillie Decent young player, one I can definetely see in a Rangers shirt; but Dundee Utd have no need to sell so we may struggle with the fee.
Craig Conway Again, very good young scottish talent; this is one I can see happening before the start of the new season.
Landon Donovan Dodgy one, the only reason that this may come to fruition is if we get him on loan. All it takes is a few good words from the likes of Edu & Beasley to sway him if he is made available on loan. And before anyone mentions Beasley; I know he was released but that does not mean he will bad mouth the club.
Gabriel Obertan Class young frenchman; He turns into a worldclass played in FIFA 10 ;) It think he may stay at Old Trafford and make his breakthrough. However if Sir Alex does let him go out on loan; then Rangers may very well be the destination when considering his relationship with Walter.
Jose Concalves Stick him where the sun doesn't shine.

Possible Out's;

Kevin Thompson As long as we get 34 Million, then I would let him go.
Madjid Bougherra If Arsenal want him, then come and get him. A sweet wee 5 million and he is yours. With Walters track record with Central Defenders; expect just as good a replacement to come in for a fraction on the price.
Niel Alexander Only for his own sake. He is far too good a Goalkeeper to be playing as a back up; And Allan McGregor for me just shades him is regards to talent.

These are not rumours I have nessecarily heard just personal thoughts and preferences.

Ed.. Any news on who Barnsley's remaining 2 or 3 signings will be? I have heard a rumour that we're after a striker (Theo Robinson) and an unnamed defender from Huddersfield for a combined fee and possibly one more striker signing in next week or so. (Combination of Sky Sports and other forums along with MR's comments on the official page).

Pleased at securing the loan signing of Diego Arismendi from Stoke. On paper it looks good. Anyone seen him play? Understand he's not worn a Stoke shirt too much since his signing. {editor's note – the only rumour I have heard is the striker one, and I don't know if I trust it because it was the agent of a player who has been released that claimed Barnsley has approached him about the player. It could have been just a way of making his player look wanted. It was a forward released by Newcastle he claimed they had spoken to about him – Frank something or other, I can't remember his surname but I am guessing there haven't been too many strikers released by Newcastle called Frank this season!}

The Takeover Bid involving Leeds United is all rumours. Bates has made it clear several times that he would look for investment into the club but also he is understood to be waiting for Leeds to return to the Premiership before selling up.

On to a few transfers rumours

Leeds had reportedly inquired about Andy Keogh from Wolves but they were quick to slap a 2.5 mil price tag on him which is believed to put Leeds off

Also all the talk about Gary Hooper will end by the end of next week as he expected the leave scunny sometime between now and then. i am not saying where he is off and that he defo going to Leeds or anywhere else i just know he will have signed for someone by then.

Lubo Michalik has recieved offers elsewhere and is expected to leave the club in the follwing weeks of the club returning from Slovakia.

While Andy Robinson and Tresor Kandol have both apparently snubbed several teams in League 1.

This is supposed to be for genuine information not a load of fantasy football fairytale rubbish. There's more chance of carlton palmer signing for barcelona then 99.9% of these posts having any substance. Lets have a bit of common sense.

turan to EPL? (cant/wont tackle so can't see roy or sir alex taking a 15 million punt on the back of a 2minute utube showreel)

donovan to everton could be a goer if you believe phil neville and the toffees have left the number 9 vacant (his squad number last season) And according to wikipidia they have already signed young dutch star leroy fer. (no ive never heard of him either). I can only see benarfa signing if pianaar rejects final contract offer.

ledley will sign for celtic after probably holding out for a decent prem team.

arsenal look to have the shwarzer deal in the bag but are more than likely putting most of their efforts in keeping fabregas and van persie, the prospect of wenger blowing 20million plus on one player is ridiculous never mind five.

And as for joe cole, . ( in my opinion a spent force and risky signing ) i presume he will be after champions league football and/or a tan! which would rule liverpool out.

 

12 Jul 2010 23:21:09
Been on here for a view months now and ive had some laughs thanks to deluded Liverpool fans thinking there gonna sign the likes of Aguero and Van Der Vaart. The only player you've bought in is Milan Jovanovich who isn't the best player in the world and the other likely signing is Paul Scharner both destined to be kop flops.

Ashley Young He will stay at Villa he wouldn't move any further north as he is the perfect distance from London and would only move to his beloved Arsenal all a european giant such as Barcalona.

Joe Cole STAYING in LONDON, he will join either Spurs or Arsenal as he wants to stay in London due to his family and friends also he can keep a close eye on the pub he owns.

Steven Ireland Wants first team football and is likely to join a team such as Everton or most likely Villa as O'Neill see's him as a good replacement for Milner IF he leaves for City.

James Milner Will ONLY join Manchester city for the money they offer him but lets face it a move to man city is a move doomed for disaster IE Adebayor and Joleon Lescott. He will stay at Villa even if a tempting offer of 2 Million plus Babel comes through ( Yeah you'd need a whole lot more than that to sign him )

Had to say my piece cause your doin my bloody head in talkin crap about winning the premier league when all Hodgeson is gonna do is turn you into a average premier league team lets face Gerrard Past it, Carragher Almost Dead and Torres Needs crutches to bloody walk

Editor what do you think buddy do you think its time for Liverpool fans to get real or carry on living in the fantasy worl they love so much ?

PsX Con {editor's note – all fans are the same, it is just that there are a lot more fans of a club like Liverpool to post wishlists (though why anyone would want Young is beyond me) as opposed to Villa who can't even fill their ground. The likes of United and Spurs fans are all posting fantasy wishlists, Leeds and Barnsley, every team. It just looks worse for Liverpool because they are in a poor state compared to what the fans expect. It is about desperation, the fans are desperate for success and they are losing objectivity.}

I was working in an appartment block in old hall street in liverpool today, when david ngog got in the lift, later on i asked the concierge if any other players live in the block, he told me that no players live there, but the new lfc team doctor has just moved in {he flew in from south africa after world cup when australia knocked out} anyway he told the concierge that the club has been sold for some weeks and the buyer is not the man city owner's brother, it is in fact his father! now i don't know if there is any truth in this but the source seems pretty good being that its somebody actually at the club, i also recall a recent post naming this new doc as his source, so all we can do is wait and see, don't forget you heard it here second jongyb

Blackburn are interested in teenage Slovenia defender Luka Krajnc.
The 15yearold centre half plays for NK Maribor and has already been tipped for stardom.
Inter and AC Milan have also shown interest but the 6ft 2ins stopper wants to come to England.

James milner and ashey young been told they are going nowhere for less than £35m and £25m respectively.

Heskey, reo coker, sidwell and davies are available. but rumours about carew are BS!

as for coming in, KJH is a non starter he is keen on move to london, (spurs maybe favourites),

the miguel rumour is doing the rounds again, usual crap with no truth behind it.

the only two with any substance (according to my source) are robbie Keane £6.5m and and Ibricic £12m

Shawcross is goin no where for at least another 2 years where he will go united 4 minimum 20m
C.cole will sign very soo as 10m bid agreed with only 2 discuss wages next.
noble will be signed, sidwell and osman might join also
figeroa will sign for about 5m
and carlo nash 4 free on 12 month contract where he is training at the moment with stoke in austria + probably a winger/striker from overseas
big changes at stoke with alot goin out such as beattie/kitson/tuncay/sonko/davies, dickinson and matteo

To whoever said this:

Doncaster Transfer Rumours
Sam vokes season long loan
Albrighton £600k
Robert Koren Free
Ross McCormack £1m
Nicky shorey £1.75m
Sam Hewson Free
Tom Heaton Free
Carl Dickinson £500k
no Danny Green Hes going to coventry city


Heaton signed for Cardiff weeks ago mate!
Koren won't go to a struggling championship team, hes goin to either Cardiff or Forest.

And McCormack will cost more than £1 mil and he has just signed a 4 year contract, unlucky with that one.

Shorey is off to Forest as well.

Albrighton won't go for 600K, won't go at all and wouldn't go to a struggling championship team, he may go on loan somewhere but no where near Donny.

Sheff Wed will be signing Richard Brodie from York.


Owls Insider



Seeing as Sheff Wed have already signed 3 strikers; Clinton Morrison, Neil Mellor, Paul Heffernan I find it unlikely. He'll be joining Charlton.

I would be hugely surprised if Arsenal sign Mertesacker, not that I would love this signing, not a typical Wenger signing. I would think more a Rolando or a Bonucci, bot of which are impressive players who are young and big.

 

12 Jul 2010 22:06:33
Arsenal line up next season hopefully
GK HANDAVOIC
RB SAGNA(IF WE KEEP IF NOT THEN VAN DER WIEL)
CB CHELLINI
CB MERTESACKER
LB CLICHY
RM ARSHAVIN/WALCOTT
CM FABREGAS/GOURCOUFF
CM NASRI/JOE COLE
LM OZIL
ST VAN PERSIE
ST CHAMAKH
SUB BENDTHER
SUB HAZARD
SUB DZEKO


Are you being serious? Your not on football manager now mate.

1 Arsene has stated, himself, he is not going to bid for Gourcouff.
2 Vermalen? Where is he? He was one of Arsenals best players last year. Even the best in the Prem!
3 We won't be Ozil or Dzeko or Chillieni ! Not in a millions years!
4 Hazard won't be joining until January!

Seriously i'm an Arsenal fan and would love to see this happen but get real!

HAZARD IN JANUARY? EVEN YOU ARE IN DREAMLAND MATE, HAZARD WOULD COST ARSENAL CLOSE TO 20M, 20M WENGER HAS NO INTENTION ON USING, WHETHER CESC LEAVES OR NOT.

Danish based English defender Mark Howard is set to join Swindon Town. Howard will replace Gordon Greer in the Swindon central defensive position.

Quick mention to anyone using KopTalk.. please don't. Search koptalkinsider and see some evidence of how ludicrous fat Dunc is. He is a joke to Liverpool and us fans.

Now rumours..

Arda Turan is not coming Hodgson has no intent as he is willing to give Reira a chance, has Jovanovic who can play left and Bryan Ruiz is a more realistic target for the wing.

Ever Benega is an exciting prospect but again someone like Scharner will fit the bill as he has EPL experience and Hodgson has tracked him for some time.

Joe Cole is not particularly a player i'd like to see at Liverpool as he is highly overrated and injury prone but looks like a possibility as Hodgson looks to bulk up his English talent.
