Kevin Phillips to Sydney FC (£100,000)

Would that be the Kevin Phillips that just signed a new contract?

Why would gerrard go to inter where rafa has just taken over?? they don't like each other. plus he wouldn't get a game with sneijder holding his position

MAN UNITED : facts . i work with close relation of irish united player and SAF has confinced T CLEVERLY to go on loan this season with DIOUFF to sunderland reason been that united have had 2 bid's excepted for a striker and attacking midfielder also vidic is staying and it may be rio on way to spur's for 12m as he want's to move back to london for other reason, s.SAF isn't really looking for another center half as we have VIVIC, WES, SMALLING, EVAN, s and 2 good youths coming through.people forget RIO missed alot of last season and we had best defence in prem only other deal's will be new goalie but only if we can use ANDERSON, CARRICK or BERBA as no other money left and in jan 2 german's will sign precontracts as UNITED prepare for new manager next season .



the above is rubbish!!

Why would old arry sign rio when he has 2 injury prone cb's already and 12m for a player who can't even complete 1/2 a season.

The keeper 'fact' is also tosh as fergie has promoted Ben Amos to 3rd choice and ive seen alot of him in reserves and hes alright.

We have almost 100m to spend so no need to sell anyone to finance any deals.

carrick, berba possibilities of leaving in the laters case i hope so but ando defo not as he wil be injured to september and has already been given till jan at least to prove he can comeback and get back to a high standard again so no chance of him moving on at the mo anyway

All these 'pool fans saying lucas is off and he's rubbish.. have you forgotten what happened the few times he played in a more attacking role?? shades of a young stevie G are what I saw.. a couple of wonder strikes in there..

rumours I've heard (living next door to some welltodo types) are: lucas wants to stay and prove his worth to the team. torres to stay for at least one season to see what is happening. Everyone knows that Masch's missus is homesick and wans to leave. Gerrard to stay, he is Liverpool through and through, cut him.. he bleeds red (ha ).

Only 'unnaounced' signings I've heard is Adam Federici if the price is right (as an understudy keeper) and 'someone' in attack. No idea who this 'someone' is, but apparently we're signing him!!

Might not have all the info in there that you expect, but it aint made up folks!!

My celtic team prediction for next year starting 11
zaluska
du riloovens? maybe o dea or hooiveld mulgrew
juarezbrownki sung yongledley
fortunekeane

all but 2 of these players currently at team mcgeady sale makes money to sign keane maybe we will get another keeper but i think zaluska will still get the jersey key subs will be nice additions if we don't get juarez i think mc court will take that position

question anyone know what happend with the trialists

Just tried to get into NANDOS and was told it was block booked, looked in and there were a number of Arab types inside??
Then walked to ONeills bar and was told private function was on. I have also been told Adelphi has bulked up on security?

ED could this be down to tommorows announcement?? {editor's note – I nearly choked then. I really have to remember not to drink when I read anything you have posted!}

To the guy who said Jesus Navas to LFC recommended by Fernando Torres for 16m..

I highly doubt he will ever leave Sevilla.. As he has Home Sickness which is very serious case in his life and Seville is the only place he feels safe.. Type it in a search engine and you will find more info on it {editor's note – he has had successful treatment for it, hence him being able to travel to South Africa for the World Cup.}

Rangers close to deal for chris eagles, next on walter smiths shopping list is harry kewell. Again in the last year of his contract he is available for a modest fee. He has indicated he is looking to move back to the u.k. has told friends he will be seeing them back home in oz next week, where rangers go for pre season tour
.
i don't know what your geting exited about , chris eagles has done nothing for burnley and i would be glad to see him go

Kewell's wife said in an interview a few weeks ago she was looking for acting work in Australia as her husband was looking to move there this summer so he can finish his career in his home country so can't see the move to Gers happening.

Evening all.
There was a rumour posted earlier that dic had arrived at formby hall golf club. I have just finished a meeting there and gone out to my car no word of a lie they have cordened off the back car park and there is a helicopter parked there along with 5 foreigners there. I swear this on my kid lives lets upper this backs up a rumour as being a piece of truth. I even took a photo as proof.

PLYMOUTH won't sign bermuda u21 keeper freddy hall, by all accounts he had a terrible match against torquay. Plymouth will look for a right back, a creative central midfielder which is undoubtedly their major problem, and a striker with pace, plus a keeper not mr hall though. My bets keeper any decent freebies. right back sam hutchinson chelsea, centre midfielder adam clayton man city, striker scott sinclair chelsea. All youngsters with potential who would have sell on value. Plymouths first eleven

LARRIEU GK

hutchinson rb seip cb ngala cb bhasera lb

bolasie rw clayton cm d.johnson cm noone lw

sinclair cf paterson cf

Reidy needs to chop fletcher getting too old, aswell as reda johnson, duguid why was he offered a deal, mclean. Alan gow will join hibernian after his mutual release of contract, john hughes and gow conspired to get gow released, the two of them are untrustworthy. Green army keep on rolling, 850 at torquay on a tuesday night pre season great turnout. QPR at loftus road 30 july, my prediction at least 1000 argyle fans minimum, lets get the atmospheres started in preseason, and keep them going.

Liverpool FC will make an announcment at 2pm on Thursday 15th July to announce the takeover of the club by Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal for £510m

In response to this post above LFC fans take this post with a pinch of salt i think this was a bored MANC LOSER who's posted this. It sounds a bit IFFY to me beware of the MANC IMPOSTERS!

Guys do not be fooled into thinking the 130 million loan Barcelona have just secured is to pay the players, the players got paid their wages on time last month, the 130 million is for FOUR new players, they plan to spend big on players this summer just like Real Madrid done last year to beat the 2012 ruling, with their 130 million plus the 60 million from the sales of Yaya, Chyhrynskiy, Henry and soon to go Ibrahimovic, Barcelona are planning to raid Liverpool for Mascherano and Torres, they want Cesc, Mata and i hate to say it Vidic.

My cousin lives just outside Madrid and everyone is talking about it, its either a wind up by jealous Real Madrid fans or its rumours from some pretty gutted Real Madrid fans, whatever it is people are not happy about it.

 

14 Jul 2010 22:33:25
Martin Cranie has almost agreed terms with Norwich just a few fine details to be sorted out and its a done deal.

If he is so close to leaving how come he played vs Nuneaton tonight?

 

14 Jul 2010 22:34:08
Now that Thomson is on his way out look for Rangers to bring in James McArthur as an immediate replacement. He has been stalling on his move down south to see if Rangers would reignite their interest in the sought after midfielder. A bid of £850k + addons will be accepted in the next 72 hours. As reported earlier Eagles is on his way to fill the void on the right made by Steven Davis moving into the middle. Also expect a £1.5m bid for David Goodwillie rapping up Rangers transfer dealings for the summer

"this is what i've read on a lot off web sites
do you think there is any truth in them (ed)"

You mean this website? Seeing all of them have been posted about 50 times each.

Sorry, but Carrick won't get you 1012m and he's not signing for either Spurs or Villa (who's highest signing ever was 12m and Carrick isn't nearly good enough to be a future highest signing). Sunderland are looking at him to replace Cana for about 7m.

3 weeks ago Cesc Fabragas bought a house 5 minutes down the road from me in St. Albans. Could this mean he is staying?

No, it means he's moving to a dodgy area with nutty neighbours.

Liverpoo will announce the signing of Rafael Van der Vaart on Wednesday week. The deal had been in discussions over the past 2 weeks and last night the two sides came to an agreement of Javier Mascherano, in exchange of £18m plus the Dutchman. He will wear number 7.

I have heard that Van Der Vaart is staying at Madrid.

Right, why do the preston fans seem to think we're after longergan? he's no better than what we have.
Rumours have been going around we're after loach from watford, or the cardiff keeper, marshall.

Also, Dobbie, DJ, Bannan and Coleman have all been lined up by Holloway as he hopes to keep them from their loans last season. Coleman is wanted for another season loan.

The israeli defender dekel keinan is due for a medical tomorrow so the signing of him should be announced soon.

Hooper is possible as a target, wages will be the easy thing, just the price tag. Although a partex may work, Eastham or Almond could go out on loan to gain vital experience.

Expect a few good signings by Ollie as he manipulates the window well, Koren is still a possibility as an incoming player.
Also Michael Bradley of USA seems more likely also now, his poor relationship with his manager could be a factor, a loan deal possible although we will look into a permanent deal.

In response to
J.TOON {editor's note only thing I have heard today was off a friend who phoned me to tell me that he saw a Newcastle delegation arriving in Madrid airport earlier. I don't have a clue why they would be there though sorry. I would doubt it was anything to do with the Toon signing Kaka though, but your guess is as good as mine as to why they were there. Unless you have a friendly in the area this preseason?}

This is for Juan Albin from Getafe, who is available on a free

Also heard rumours that Klass Jan Huntelaar is set to come to newcastle in a 10m deal. Hughton has presuaded ashley that they need a top class striker. Huntelaar wants first team football and will be looking to wear no.9

De Guzman is also likely but he is supposedly holding out for a better deal. {editor's note – where are Getafe based? Sorry my geography is terrible, but I never knew they were anywhere near Madrid. I will have to alter my notes if they are.}

i actually just googled sebastian frey going to arsenal and that was one of the stories that came up and i went back this morning to look into it a bit more and that wasnt there so im guessing there was no truth behind so sorry about that but i would still like to see frey join arsenal

Hey ed just wondered if you have any tranfer news on nemeth as for some reason he hasnt travelled with the lfc squad to switzerland? i actualy hope he stays he looks like he could become quite a force in our squad. whats your thoughts? {editor's note – he wants to go apparently. He wanted assurances about a first team place, he was told that he would need to prove he was worthy of a place. Seems likely he will leave if a decent offer comes in.}

 

14 Jul 2010 21:54:29
To the guy who posted this ..

Dan Gosling is going to sign for Newcastle 100% nailed on, and they are in talks with a young striker from a top european club.

do you have any idea who this striker could be?

14 Jul 2010 14:25:25
Just seen Fabion Jose Fuentes leave Man U Hotel in Toronto. I think he looks after some Brazil Players. Anyone know who he looks after. ?


He is Luis Fabiano's agent. I think his name is Jose Fuentes. He could well be Fabio and Rafeal's agent or Possebon or Anderson. I wouldn't get my hopes up for Fabiano.

Also 25 million is what Sevilla want, that's way over the odds for a player that is 29 and in the last year of his contract.

Any Southampton fc news?

With Simeon Jackson pretty much going to Norwich any ideas if saints will sign an extra striker??. Any idea who? I've heard Charlie Austin and Brett Pittman but I'm not sure if that will happen simply because whoever we sign won't be guaranteed first team action. I think lee holmes for lines is realistic but again I'm not sure if pardrew will stick with what we have or push for some big names considering oxlade chamberline seems to be pushing for a first team place on the right and connolly looks in fine form but is lambert barnard and Connolly enough I don't think so personally. Inless Ryan doble is going to make an impact.

Any other news Ed?

Saint Sam {editor's note – nothing new mate, but I do have a question for you, what is Schneiderlein(sp?) like? He is attracting Premiership interest.}

To address the tripe typed below,

" 14 Jul 2010 05:09:21
I love how everyone uses FACT as if there RAFA! Nothing will become a FACT until it actually happens, just get a clue lads.

Ok onto the Liverpool takeover I live in the states and Tom Hicks is about to have a lawsuit against while trying to tamper with the sale of his baseball team the Texas Rangers. Thus could put the sale of Liverpool FC in jeopardy as he needs to get his money as quickly as possible.

Editor let me know your thoughts or if you have more to add {editor's note it is partly because of this that he has to sell and has had to remove himself from the process.} "


First off, if Hicks needs to get cash as soon as possible, how could this hamper the sale of LFC? If anything this would expedite it substantially.

Secondly, as I've stated before Hicks needs to sell LFC
a.s.a.p in order to pay off the debt required just to sell the Texas Rangers.

To summarize, LFC will be sold in the very near future, maybe more nearer then you could imagine.

I live in Texas, and have watched this saga drag on. He is also is in deep trouble with the Dallas Stars, as Mike Modano has refused to play another season with them, and if he does it will be for another team.

That would be like Carra saying I've played with you my whole career, love this club more the life it self, but if you think I am playing for you anymore your answer is this;

Spell the word "Way" with an F. T which the correct response would be, there is no "F" in way.

Keep the faith Red Men, it's all going to end sooner, much sooner then later. Good times ahead! Don't believe the Gooners, Mancs, or Rent Boys, they have there problems to deal with, they just make ours seem worse to make themselves feel better. YNWA/JT96

"Take it from me, I'm working for Formby Hall Golf Club and the rumour yesterday about DIC hiring it all week is spot on. I've been told by an ex Liverpool player, who is best mates with Dalglish that within the next 2 weeks, the takeover of Liverpool FC from the yanks will be complete. In time to get their top 3 targets on board. He said it concerns over £100 million in transfers.
G.G.G."
If Mick Hanlon finds out you're repeating rumours you'll be out of FHGC.

We have better training facilities, better stadium, better team ethos( although not sure if this will be of any effect on him) and better worldwide standing so hopefully the lure of it being utd and the manager can sway him our way but if he doesn't come please god lets hope that swedish child and useless tube Zlatan doesn't ever enter fergies mind.

Mancini may have given him his debut but i doubt city's style of play will suit him however ours perfectly matches his. Im with youhopefully Uniteds history, playing style, champions league football and team spirit will persuade him to join us. I once said something about hat i would do if we signed luis fabiano..and it wasnt good. Times that by 10 if we sign ibrahimovic. That egotistical donkey is good for no team.

It is Rumored that he is interested in some kind of racing team (not horses.F1??!!) a Hockey and NFL franchise in the US, A football club in Europe, preferably EPL and a cricket franchise in India.Along with these he is also interested in Sports franchises and development in the UAE and far east.""

"This is about formby hall golf course being hired out, ive just checked and they arent taking bookings until the 21st. I doubt it means DIC have hired it out but there could be some truth in it."

as mentioned before, formby is being used for the qualifiers for the womens open (which is being held at birkdale next weekend)

if dic were going to be put up in a golf course for the weekend, wouldn't it be a course like birkdale and not a weekend pitch and putt like formby?

2 players in maybe 1 more a think we need a proven
goalscorer because if celtic get robbie keane or another
great forward we have no chance of retaining the title.

i have also this rumour that a former player was returning i don't see that happening as we have plenty in defence and theres not been many midfielders left ibrox that still play ( hope its not charlie miller . lol) maybe forward ( p lovenkrands) . no chance hutton/gattuso/fergusan/boumsong/kygriakos no chance as each of them on about at least 30 grand a week . i have heard of 1 player on loan deal is vladmer wiess from man city .

SAF is happy with his squad as he denied being interested in any other players however
Wesley Sneijder is at the top of SAF's list. And he is willing to do whatever is needed to bring the dutchman to Old Trafford.If a deal can be struck it will see Sneijder staying at Inter till January.
There is also genuine interest in Mario Balotelli as reported, however SAF has no interest in Zlatan Ibrahimović at all.
Wes Brown and Micheal Carrick appear to be heading for the door at Old Trafford.
Dimitar Berbatov will be given until January to prove himself.

Even though Roy came out to say that Lucas has a Liverpool future, the Brazilian is off to Roma for £6m. Albert Riera has been told he has no future and will sign for Atletico Madrid in a £7m deal"

They can't be going any where anytime soon , ive just watched all 3 of them board the plane on sky sports news to liverpools Training camp in Switzerland! So might need to rethink that one ?

I havent seen the rumour of Raul to sign for Man Utd on a free transfer on here yet. Surprised no one has posted anything about this. As a short term measure this could be an ideal signing (remember the impact Larson had) and it would also be an ideal opportunity for the younger players to learn from one of the best.

What do people think about this rumour?

 

14 Jul 2010 18:22:19
To this deluded Ger:

14 Jul 2010 10:50:34
Rangers do have money to spend. £5m to buy new players and sort out contracts. Any money generated by selling players will go to Walter Smith to strengthen the squad. Walter himself has come out and said that he would like players in before the tour of Australia but Rangers have been burned before by rushing into signings. Rangers will bring in new players and current players will leave.
As long as the squad isn't ripped apart completely the freshening up should do the team good. Celtic will probably start the season as favourites but Rangers have the basis of a team who have played together for a few years now. You can't buy that experience and unity.


no..rangers do not have £5m to spend, that figured was plucked out of thin air by the press, and Smith has already publicly stated that he will be lucky to get a percentage of any sales. no fewer than 8 players have contracts running out, meaning more than half of your experienced and unified team will be plying their trade elsewhere.
and please, talk about gattuso, et al, is just plain stupid, you couldnt even hold on to your top goalscorer who only wanted an extra 5k a week ffs!
time to take your heads out of the sand and face facts..the whole team are for sale, and will be replaced by promising youngsters, noone will be paid over 12k a week..FACT

14 Jul 2010 16:22:56
I fully expect both gerrard and torres to stay; real madrid have backed off gerrard and unless another english team pay over the odds we would not consider selling to them.

i expect mascherano to leave for inter for roughly £2530 million. this means roys has 4 areas he needs to sign players LB LW DM ST

LB i expect either taiwo or bridge to come in for £8mill
LW one of Cole (hard to get), ruiz(12mill) or turan (12mill)
DM one of Banega (12 mill), Barry(12 mill), or parker(9 mill)
ST with a lot of talk about old liverpool strikers being resigned i am surprised that Robbie Keane has not been given a mention, he failed due to rafa not giving him a chance and is still popular with the fans. i believe under Roy Hodson he may be a success. what do you think about robbie keane Ed? {editor's note – his off the pitch antics are enough to say he doesn't deserve a second chance. I wouldn't bring him back myself, I don't think he is quite good enough, he is certainly not good enough to risk stifling Dalle Valle and Pacheco for.}

Javier Mascherano wants to sign for Inter, but Inter are not prepared to meet Liverpool's £50m valuation (a value derived from Rafa Benitez's time at Inter). Inter have given Liverpool 4 offers for which they're prepared to pay
 £30m straight cash offer
 £25m plus Rene Krhin
 £15m plus Rene Krhin and Sulley Muntari
 £5m plus Mario Balotelli
Liverpool are under pressure to accept one of the offers in order to give Roy Hodgson a transfer budget (which at present is £15m), Mascherano's own desire to leave, and Inter's growing interest in Sami Khedira, Angelo Palombo and Raul Meireles as alternatives.
Palermo's move for Lucas is totally dependant on whether Lucas wants to stay at Liverpool. Hodgson is happy to keep the player, but if a bid of over £8m arrives, Roy will allow Lucas to make a choice. Hodgson is prepared to use Lucas as bait in a move for Edinson Cavani.
Phillip Degen, Damien Plessis, Nabil El Zhar, Albert Riera and Diego Cavalieri will all be allowed to leave if suitable offers are made.
At present I'm unsure as to other transfer targets other than Edinson Cavani, but a leftback, central midfielder (1or2 depending on Lucas), and striker are the most pressing issues.

Coventry Fans,

Who will replace beckford at Leeds ?

i've heard so many rumours.

somma in a year or 2 maybe
delfonso doubt it but would be good
lita just what we need
sinclair unsure
hooper would be great
paynter not a natural goalscorer
watt too young
kamara would be an amazing signing but doubt it.

Arsenal will be putting in a 10 mill bid for wolves striker kevin doyle , who they have been watching for months.
Wolves will then use this money to sign robbie keane permenant and to get jamie o'hara on loan from spurs.
Also freddy adu is on blackpools wishlist and a friend of mine who works in the blackburn area told me he saw robert pires and danny rose in the area in the last week or so

14 Jul 2010 16:02:25
Since Simon Grayson signed the extended contract, the big words coming from outside of Thorp Arch is now KB will hand over some cash to buy in Hooper and McArthur, with a couple more possibles, young players. Other than that, there will be no more signings prior to the season kick off as we also have several good quality youth players coming through and some players already in the squad.

{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.

LIKE I SAID, KALOU WILL BE SOLD IF RIGHT OFFER COMES IN, BOTH ANELKA AND DROGBA COULD BE GONE NEXT SEASON, ANELKA (31) DEFFO, DROG (32) MAYBE WITH DECENT OFFER, UNLESS BORINI STEPS UP TO CHAMPIONS LEAGUE STANDARD STRIKER THIS SEASON THEY COULD POSSIBLY BE IN THE MARKET FOR TWO WORLD CLASS STRIKERS NEXT SUMMER, WHICH OBVIOUSLY ISNT GOOD, AGUERO IS PRIME TARGET NOW, HIS PRICE IS ONLY GOING UP, AND ZIRKHOV WILL PLAY LEFT BACK, WHY BUY ANOTHER? WE HAVE GOOD YOUNGSTERS FOR COVER, ALSO MATIC WONT REPLACE BALLCK, WE WILL HAVE ESSEIN BACK, NOT BIG TRANSFER CHANGES BUT BIG MENTALITY/STYLE CHANGES FOR CHELSEA, IT WILL BE ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK WITH LOTS OF WIDTH, YOUTH AND PACE,

TEN MEN WENT TO MOW

Kaka quietly back on Man City's radar after reports that Mourinho believes he may not feature in his plans for Real Madrid

 

14 Jul 2010 15:43:30
"Take it from me, I'm working for Formby Hall Golf Club and the rumour yesterday about DIC hiring it all week is spot on. I've been told by an ex Liverpool player, who is best mates with Dalglish that within the next 2 weeks, the takeover of Liverpool FC from the yanks will be complete. In time to get their top 3 targets on board. He said it concerns over £100 million in transfers.
G.G.G."
If Mick Hanlon finds out you're repeating rumours you'll be out of FHGC.
All the Ex players admit that they haven't got a clue what's going on. Those who do know are staying stum !

 

14 Jul 2010 14:58:52
First to the guy who said

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.

If he isn't going to a struggling Championship team then surely Doncaster have a chance? They finished in the top half, so to me that definitely isn't a struggling team.

Then, Martin Woods to Preston for £500K? We rejected that amount from you in January, stop writing st please.

Ed any newcastle transfer rumours you have heard

also has anyone else got any newcastle rumours 2 thanks


J.TOON {editor's note – only thing I have heard today was off a friend who phoned me to tell me that he saw a Newcastle delegation arriving in Madrid airport earlier. I don't have a clue why they would be there though sorry. I would doubt it was anything to do with the Toon signing Kaka though, but your guess is as good as mine as to why they were there. Unless you have a friendly in the area this pre–season?}

To the Forest fan who said this

Once Nottingham Forest return from their tour of Portugal it will be very busy down at the city ground. Forest will announce the signings of these players:

Darren Pratley £2 million
Nicky Shorey £1.4 million
Peter Whittingham £2.3 million
Gary Hooper £2.5 million
Youl Mawene Free

I hope your right mate, these signings would be fantastic , but to be honest Forest have more chance of signing autographs than they do any players!

 

14 Jul 2010 15:24:25
Leeds will not sign Gary Hooper!

As part of the Fabian Delph transfer to Leeds that if Leeds got promoted Nathan Delfouneso will be available to come on a season long loan. (If Grayson Wants Him)

Alson Marlon Harewood and Jay DeMerit have all been offered contracts at Leeds.

Robert Koren will be offered a contract if Leeds fail in there 750k bid to bring in James McArthur from Hamilton.

Also Sanchez Watt to return on a 6 month loan with a view to extending that for the rest of the season.

And Finally Ken Bates has not sold Leeds United.
He wants to stay on as chairman for at least another year but he has been contacted by a American millionaire about the possibility of selling at the end of the season.

Anymore Millwall rumours?

 

14 Jul 2010 14:51:25
Sometimes you have to laugh at the situation, Liverpool have had one bad season the season before we were climbing up to 2nd with pretty much the same team. Granted we need an experienced left back but 15 million we could easily get someone good for half that, also watch out for aquilani he will show what a player he is, by no means is steven gerrard past it, gerrard was one of the best players for england in the first few games and hes had one bad season and that means Liverpool are failing and Gerrards past it, RH will shake up Liverpool and next season we will be back to ourselves, guarenteed!

Rumours:

Out

Mascherano: Approx. £2324 Million (they will not get 30mil)

Riera: 6 Million

Lucas: 50/50 (Roy want him, offers on table, decision is Lucas's)

In:

Jovanovic (Free Done)

there will be 2more signings but no names so far

Thats all there is as of yet as Roy is still assesing situation through friendlys commencing on 17th July, so not a clue why people decide to let the minds wonder into fantasy. Roy will give the youth talent to shine more likely in the cup fixtures and europa. Aquilani will step it up this year as will Lucas (have faith). Roy is obviously looking for a DM to replace Mascherano, there is no news on who this will be so stop with the stories please :)

Liverpool Players linked with moves but staying: Torres, Gerrard, Babel, Kuyt, Lucas, Riera. Johnson.
Going: Mach and the duds.
I know some of you are wishing for a mass liverpool exodus because you are sad enough to worry about 1 teams season of decline rather than concentrate on whats happening with your own team (Arsenal fans inparticular, youre signinig everyone but cesc is staying) but the truth is Liverpool are in advanced stages of a club sale.
What does this mean? It means that if Mcdonalds were gonna sell out then they wouldn't get rid of the big mac and the mcflurry before they sold would they?
Gerrard, Torres and others have very long water tight contracts, selling either would make the club less attractive to new owners both on the pitch and commercially.
The new owners will be looking to maximise publicity in the middle east and far east, Torres is the face to front this, simple.
So with investment on the way, a new ground being funded and star players being tied down to long lucrative deals, Liverpool have no need to sell.
Players have only 1 reson to leave, no champions league but this is only likely to be one season.
You may not like it but Liverpool will be strong again very soon. Fianaly only the following players are likely to sign at this minute, other rumours are 50/50.
Joe Cole 7 shirt being printed as we speak
Gareth barry Will replace Macherano

other siginings will come about once the takeover has been publicised.

The reason Gary Hooper hasn'r played in any of Scunnys pre season fixtures is that he is in Slovakia with the Leeds squad. As the transfer hasn't yet been confirmed he will be starting games under the moniker Bartholamew Gadsby.

To this clown

"Oh and the season tickets are all snapped up for next season"

Funny how you can still buy season tickets (for half the areas in the stadium) on the Rangers website. Dunce.

Anyway..

Can't see Mcfadden going to Rangers as he is a big Celtic fan and I don't think his da would be too happy. The rumour is Celtic are after him as the supposed 'box office' draw if Bellemy can't be brought in. 3m wouldn't be too much to pay but he was worth a fair bit more than that before so not sure why the price has dropped.

To quote some new papers and what iv just seen

MANCHESTER UTD: Directors from the Premier League club had lunch with Mario Balotelli's agent on Monday, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. The paper reports that United made a 35 million euro bid last week, but Inter Milan are hoping to receive 40 million for the 19yearold.

now in the last hour or so drove past old trafford as i do daily , but there was lots men in suits and photographers , way way way more than usuall. and they did seem to surround a talk black man.



Its common Knowledge the Balotelli and his agents are coming to Manchester to discuss a deal with both city and utd. Although im a utd fan the facts are not looking good in our favour.

His ex manager and guy who gave him his debut at Inter is at city, they have a bucket load of extra money, ex teammate is there in Vieira and he will prob get to meet Mancini face to face. All advantages in my eyes.

We have better training facilities, better stadium, better team ethos( although not sure if this will be of any effect on him) and better worldwide standing so hopefully the lure of it being utd and the manager can sway him our way but if he doesn't come please god lets hope that swedish child and useless tube Zlatan doesn't ever enter fergies mind.

 

14 Jul 2010 14:24:17
With the Jackson deal completed, Norwich will look to wrap up their summer dealings in the coming weeks.

Owain TudorJones will be heading to a League One club (probably Yeovil) on a permanent deal, while Tom Adeyemi & Cody McDonald go on loan to Bradford City & Gillingham respectively.

Matt Gill will be staying for now, but may move later in the window. Jens Askou was left at home for the Germany tour as his wife is heavily pregnant, and will be staying at the club.

Expect an approach for Bournemouth's Brett Pittman, with a Rhoys Wiggins loan deal used to sweeten the deal. The Canaries are pursuing both Pittman & Adam Rooney as their final striking addition.

Danny Green is still being monitored, and may be signed later in the window once other areas of the squad have been sorted.

A rightback is the immediate target however, with Martin Crainie among those being linked.

To the leeds fans saying that mccarthur will jion i don't think so. The move has stalled rangers are waiting on thompson moving to midlesbrough and then using that money.And mccarthur would choose rangers i would thin he supports them and has a chance to play in europe.

Celtic are closing in on Efrain Juarez should be completed within the next 48 hours.No chance of keane coming more likely bellamy and i think won't happen either.I don't think we should go for hooper he obviously aint that good if teams like blackpool and leeds are interested.So i think celtic should try and get Mcfadden

Kris1888

in reply:
its not Leeds fan as such, its in today paper and on a couple of website check out the daily record and clicklancashire website

other Leeds news
Leeds are also being link to Leroy Lita in today's daily star
Darel Russell still thinking over his move and Andy O'Brien could come in on a season loan deal

Leeds are not in for Andy Keogh (Google it) or Gary Hooper to expensive. and we were never in for Billy Sharp

Regarding the Rumor that Formby hall is booked.. it seems to be..although i have no way of finding out who booked it, it is true that no rooms or confrere hall available for at least the next week..
Ed, do you think its DIC again? working for the Sheikhs?
It is a Rumor here in my country amongst people who live and work in Dubai that Sheikh Khalifa, the one after whom the world's tallest building was recently named and who bailed out Dubai from financial crisis is looking to make a real name for himself globally. It is Rumored that he is interested in some kind of racing team (not horses..F1??!!) a Hockey and NFL franchise in the US, A football club in Europe, preferably EPL and a cricket franchise in India..Along with these he is also interested in Sports franchises and development in the UAE and far east.
Could all be codswallop but who knows right??

Also heard a rumor doing the circles that the TATA owner from India is no longer interested.

I called some of my old friends living in Mersyside and Blackpool..they know just about the same things on this site..rumors..But some of them who work in finance say that something is definitely up w.r.t Liverpool. They say that by the time Broughton announced the status quo a few days ago, work was already underway to transfer ownership.

Sounded impossibly wishful but their was also a mention of two world class players who played semifinals this world cup. Who knows..i can only hope!

Living Red!

Gary Hooper to PNE? It seems more than a rumour.

Preston looking for a least one goalscoring striker.
Nobody can match Scthorpe's price demands so a fee + player deal may work. Stephen Elliott is available, as would be Jon Parkin. Eddie Nolan is already on loan at Scthorpe, a permanent deal could be concluded as part of a deal for Hooper.
Hooper's current wages are very low, Preston would offer more without offering silly money the likes of which outgoing Wallace, Carter, Chaplow et al have been on
Ferguson has stated that "one or two players who weren't available now are" and is actively pursuing these
Paul Hayes is at Preston, great friends and playing partners with Hooper.
Hayes also said when joining "Maybe Hooper will come too"

I am not "in the know" but I would summise that the Hooper to Preston rumour has substance.

Bristol City are to make moves for free agents Stephen Finnan, Robert Koren, Chris Riggott and Richard Wright when the club returns from sweden.

Colin sextone has been in contact with all 4 plus a unamed striker.

Bristol city will also look at selling on Paul Hartley, Bradley orr, Gavin Williams, Lee Johnson and Ivan sproule as Coppell does not rate them and feels they are not have the spirit in them to play for Bristol City.

This info was giving to me by a academy scout and I thought Id pass it on.

Ever Banega is keen for Liverpool to make their interest concrete.

Las Provincias says the 22 yearold Valencia midfielder has welcomed rumours of Liverpool reviving their pursuit of his transfer.

Banega was interesting Liverpool towards the end of last season when Rafa Benitez was in charge and remains on their radar, despite Roy Hodgson's arrival.

The young Argentine, 22, is excited by the prospect of moving to England.
I've seen him on youtube and looks great (who doesn't), but didn't make the Argentine squad for the world cup. I for one would love to see this type of playermake it happen Roy
Thoughts anyone

 

14 Jul 2010 13:40:58
If by chance torres ever left, why would he go to a club that his best mate ( reina ) hates.
in reality its just chelsea trying to drum up season ticket sales.

Why would Torres move to Real he is a die hard Atletico fan. I heard a rumour if Kolarov signs for Man City, Bridge will sign for Liverpool. BTW I'm a Celtic fan so I don't really care but don't post crap.

Rangers and Burnley are extremely close to agreeing a £1.3m deal for Chris Eagles, the player is also said to be keen to join the Scottish Champions, the deal could be completed by the end of the week.

Source Glasgow Evening Times

So I would to think there was a good chance Eagles was at Murray Park, just like it had been reported last week Vultures were seen hovering over Lennoxtown viewing the dead meat below, and there was plenty on the menu.

Liverpool have apparently accepted an £8.5million bid from Birmingham for Ryan Babel which is quite strange considering they rejected a £9million bid in January.Yossi Benayoun has already left for Chelsea in a deal worth around £6million so Roy will have £14.5million to add to the £12million he recieved.Javier Mascherano is 50/50 to leave to Inter with Liverpool refusing to drop there £28million valuation and Inter Milan saying he is too expensive a player plus cash deal may be the most likely here.Roy is looking to bring in Lee Cattermole as his replacement but Steve Bruce said he is not going anywhere after losing his midfield partner Lorik Cana to Galatasary.There are also rumours of Taye Taiwo, Paul Scharner, Joe Cole, Keisuke Honda, Asamoah Gyan, KevinPrince Boatneg, James Milner, Ashley Young, Park Chu Young, Maynor Figueroa, Peter Crouch, Gary Cahill, Brede Hangeland, Steven Defour, Rafael Van der Vaart, Carlton Cole, Royston Drenthe, Diego Tardelli, Fernando Llorrente, Stephen Ireland, the list goes on and on this isn't even half the names linked with our club this summer really most of the things in the paper are just crap and none of us really know we will just have to wait and see what happens in my opinion there is probably some truth in Paul Scharner, Joe Cole and Taye Taiwo rumours and hopefully truth in some of the others but lets stop guessing and just wait and see.

Rangers are at a very advanced stage of resigning an ex player, this is for 2 reasons 1 to get the fans on side as they won't be making any exciting signings only younger lads with potential ie mcarthur conway etc and to add much needed experience as we will be seeing more of lads like fleck, mcmillan, ness etc so look out for Gattuso, boumsong, soti can't think of who else

Could be Peter Lovenkrands??? On another note, not to bothered about Thomson going, he picks up to many injuries and silly bookings!! Any word on Eagles Ed?

Karim Benzema is on 4.8m euros per a year which is around 77k a week (Sterling), the 200k a week that you are referring to was what he would have wanted by Manchester United if he was to choose Manchester United over his boyhood heroes Real Madrid.

His current wage is 77k a week (58k a week after tax) but he is under the old tax system in Spain where he only pays 24% tax! Manchester United or Liverpool will have to pay him 117k a week in order to equal his current Real Madrid wages as in England he will have to pay 50% tax. This is what Ferdinand, Torres and Gerrard are currently on give or take 5k!

MANCHESTER UTD: Directors from the Premier League club had lunch with Mario Balotelli's agent on Monday, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. The paper reports that United made a 35 million euro bid last week, but Inter Milan are hoping to receive 40 million for the 19yearold.

now in the last hour or so drove past old trafford as i do daily , but there was lots men in suits and photographers , way way way more than usuall. and they did seem to surround a talk black man.

Source= FM 2010 by any chance??


Rooney has repeatedly said he will remain at Utd for his career and has never had any temptation to leave. Now im not going to be so naive and think this a guarentee but im almost certain while fergie is there Wazza will go nowhere.

Fabiano has already stated, and it was him not his agent, that Spurs move will not happen as he only sees a move to a team with champs league winning capability which spurs do not have. Hence the links to Utd and AC.

Rangers do have money to spend. £5m to buy new players and sort out contracts. Any money generated by selling players will go to Walter Smith to strengthen the squad. Walter himself has come out and said that he would like players in before the tour of Australia but Rangers have been burned before by rushing into signings. Rangers will bring in new players and current players will leave.
As long as the squad isn't ripped apart completely the freshening up should do the team good. Celtic will probably start the season as favourites but Rangers have the basis of a team who have played together for a few years now. You can't buy that experience and unity.

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!

ok my fellow arsenal fans really need to get their heads out of the sand and realise we r not going to splash out. balotelli would cost at least £15m, subotic the same and neuer and stekelenberg are easily £10m keepers.
as i posted ydy, arsene will make a maximum of 3 new signings. Joe Cole will NOT be one of them. ridiculous wage demands and we have enough injury prone players at the club. who gives a toss if he's english, we're already stocked in terms of the homegrown quota. Gai Assulin, who admittedly has had his injury problems presents a much better investment. already better technically than cole, he has his best years in front of him and can be moulded to rival the likes of nasri, arshavin and rosicky at the club. wage demands would also be much more realistic.
secondly, a keeper will indeed be brought in, but he will be vastly experienced, and guaranteed to be over 30 years old. remember Szczesny and Mannone are the future! it will be out of Frey(prefered), Schwarzer and maybe Handanovic.
thirdly, arsene will splash out on a top class centreback to play alongside Vermaelen. names being bandied around include Mertesacker, Tasci, Zapata, Cahill(overpriced) and Diakhate.
that is it, so stop fantasising about expensive strikers, or strikers at all for that matter, young goalkeepers, midfield maestros and the like. get with the program.
team for next season:
newGK/Mannone
Sagna/Eboue newCB/Djourou Vermaelen/Koscielny Clichy/Gibbs
Song/Denilson Diaby/Assulin
Fabregas/Ramsey
Nasri/Walcott vPersie/Bendtner/Chamakh/Eduardo Arshavin/Rosicky/Vela

Liverpool fans need to do their homework on Defour; he is not the player that looked good against you and Everton in the European competitions. He has had an injury ravaged season and is said by most Belgian commentators to have lost a bit of pace and aggression from his game.

I'd say the last thing Liverpool need is another overpriced CM in the Aquilani mould that will be clogging up the treatment table on top wages at a time when you're skint at need your best players on the field. Theres plenty of combative defensive midfielders that are cheaper and less injury prone options.

On Masch, Inter are leaning towards a player plus cash deal so the figures of £2735m posted by most Liverpool fans on here are wide of the mark. You are looking at £810M cash realistically + a Inter squad player

Cahill is part of the wedding party so will no doubt be celebrating the great news all blues have wanted to hear.

14 Jul 2010 09:41:29
Despite Torres being pictured wearing a Liverpool scarf in postWC Final celebrations, I still believe he hasn't yet made up his mind about where his future lies. Comments from his Spanish team mates allude to this.

I think his decision will be based purely on two things: firstly, the sale of the club and what effects that will have (when it happens??); and secondly the player buying & selling plans for this transfer window. I think that if quality players are sold they have to be replaced with equal or better quality players or he'll be off.

Also unless 35 very talented players are bought (even financed by player sales) so that we have a realistic shot at the FA Cup, Europa Cup and a Top 4 finish this season and then a plan for further strengthening for a shot at the title next season, then he'll be off.

Don't kid yourselves, Chelsea are interested and this is a realistic option for Torres, as is Barcelona.

Optimistically, he may give Liverpool one more season if he sees on the horizon (i.e. this year) a takeover that will likely propel LFC back into the European and domestic elite. (Here's hoping!)

This is not a rumour this is fact. I am a member of Mere Golf Club, as are most of united and Citys first team players. I am good freinds with Mike Phelan, and play once a month with him and occasionally with Sir Alex. Robinio is about to sign a one year loan deal with us and will be joined at united by Wesley sneider. Sir Alex has put all his transfer money into this deal, and will cost united £32 million with add ons for League title and Champions league glory.

Thanks for reading

Comrades!

If Torres is badly injured (tests currently in progress) then Liverpool intend to start the season with a front three (left to right) of Jovanovic, Dalli Valle/Pacheco, Babel/Kuyt.

Might seem strange, but when you think about it it's the best utilisation of available assets. What struck me was the absence of Maxi. N'Gog and Nemeth are out of the picture as negotiations pending, they will not be at Liverpool next season. Loan and sold respectively.

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!

Would like to see this but,

The GK looks to be Frey.

The defender is a lower profile one such as Halliche because Wenger spent nearly 11 million on Koscielny who also has been given the number 6

Other than those definite 2 would love to see Ozil but may only happen next year

Joe Cole this year is 50/50

Reply to this:
I just want to clarify a few things regarding LFC. Do not expect too much movement in the transfer market this summer. Hodgson wants to have a good look over the squad before looking at any major changes and any transfers in will be based on players leaving.

Defour was being looked at as a direct replacement for Gerrard, Scharner for Lucas, Figueroa for Insua, Gyan for Torres. If none of these players leave then we won't see any coming in.

The only signing i can see happening is a direct replacement for Benayoun. I believe Joe Cole has been earmarked for this, though he's more than likely off to Spurs. Once this has been confirmed, then i expect us to move for Bryan Ruiz. I wouldn't really see us making any other significant signings during this transfer window. We underachieved last season so major changes aren't required anyway.

The manager will look over the squad in the summer preseason games & also get info from the staff on players we need & also the weak points in the team, so the manager is not going to waste a transfer window & they will infact bring players the team needs to make it stronger.

As you said we did under achieve last season but we still need a left back/left midfielder/striker. {editor's note – the club has already signed a left winger/striker and Mavinga has been pushed forward as the answer at left back.}

Fulham Transfers dependent on manager (only what i believe)

Bob Bradley Maybe his son Michael Bradley to team with Danny Murphy and or Steve sidwell in midfield.
Landon Donovan to make up the four strikers with Bobby, AJ and Gera.
With Senderos in it depends on Hangeland staying or going whether we make a bid for Davis from Villa or not.
expect a bid for Joe hart, Rob Green or David James to replace Schwarzer.
If Konchesky leaves then Miguel will be bought in, not sure whether to play at left back though.

Otmar Hitzfeld Will be Happy Senderos has arrived. Probably have enough pull power to persuade hangeland to stop. expect bids for solid premier league players who know the game and have experience. Such as Steve Sidwell, Michael Owen, Nicky shorey, David James, and maybe a few suprises such as, Tranquillo Barnatta, Trochowski and Andre Ayew.

Sven Goran Eriksson Joe Hart, Michael Owen, Cheke Tiote, Rafael Van der Vaart, Nedum Onuohu, Michael Johnson, Dan Gosling, Andre Ayew, Tshaballala. plus others more than likely noing him.

ONLY WHAT I RECKON COULD HAPPEN LOOKING AT THE DIFFERNT MANAGERS STYLES AND CONTACTS.

Inter Milan have offered Liverpool £29m for Javier Mascherano. Roy Hodgson is intrigued to selling as he can now strengthen the squad. Emiliano Insua is off to Fiorentina in a £5m deal. Even though Roy came out to say that Lucas has a Liverpool future, the Brazilian is off to Roma for £6m. Albert Riera has been told he has no future and will sign for Atletico Madrid in a £7m deal. Ryan Babel will not be given a lifeline and has agreed to sign for Borussia Dortmund for a surprising £12m deal. Dortmund are convinced he is worth that and Liverpool chiefs quickly agreed. Also out the door will be Nabil El Zhar for £2m, Damien Plessis for £1m, and Kristian Nemeth for £1.5m. This will give £60m to Roy to spend in the summer. Bryan Ruiz is the first player to sign and will be officially announced next Tuesday for £12m. Taye Taiwo and Yuto Nagatomo will sign for £8.5m and £3.5m repsectively. more signings will be announced over the next month

Ok onto the Liverpool takeover I live in the states and Tom Hicks is about to have a lawsuit against while trying to tamper with the sale of his baseball team the Texas Rangers. Thus could put the sale of Liverpool FC in jeopardy as he needs to get his money as quickly as possible.

Editor let me know your thoughts or if you have more to add {editor's note – it is partly because of this that he has to sell and has had to remove himself from the process.}

Liverpool Rumours.
Roy Hodgson is focusing on established Premier League players and will look to sign the out of contract Joe Cole to succeed the now Chelsea player Yossi Benayoun, the out of contract Paul Scharner for the Inter bound Javier Mascherano, and Maynor Figueroa or the Liverpool Academy graduate Stephen Warnock for the out of contract Fabio Aurelio.
Dan Gosling will also be offered a contract, who incidently is also a free agent.
Connor Wickham, Danny Wilson & Adam Matthews are all being targeted to line up alongside Jonjo Shelvey, Raheem Sterling & Jack Robinson as Christian Purslow & Kenny Daglish impose their new policy, to give Liverpool's youth system a fresh impetus. They want to place the emphasis back on developing British talent, whether already on the books or bought in.
Also expect David N'Gog to West Brom, Daniel Pacheco to Celtic, Damien Plessis to Lazio & Daniel Ayala to Valladolid for season long loans for some much needed experience.
Finally Dean Bouzanis will step up after a succesful loan spell at Accrington Stanley, to replace the unsettled Diego Cavalieri as Pepe Reina's understudy.

===============
''Robbie Keane on way to Celtic straight swap for Mcgeady
Bullard finaly joins on Friday as does Sol Campbell.
Mcfadden signs on Monday for 4m.

Whats your source mate?''

His own deluded mind i reckon. Harry Redknapp wouldn't give Mcgreedy the time of day. Only Aston Villa have shown an interest in the wee cheat.


Lol Both at the so called news up top and then the classic example of the pot calling the kettle black underneath, Rangers fans should really took a look at "sniper in the crowd" Lafferty before having shots at McGeady.

Anyway, McGeady to leave for Villa in the next few days, he has a thigh injury but the main reason he didn't go to America with the squad was to give him a chance to to talk to other clubs.

Villa will offer 1012m for Aiden, the only matter is whether its entirely financial or with a player to make up the differnce, however they do need to try and shift ReoCoker, Shorey and Sidwell before then can begin buying, which has lead to the belief one of these players may be used as a makeweight in the McGeady deal.

Other pieces of buisness include the purchase of Efrain Juarez from PUMAS which will cost around 2.5m.

The final big rumour going around the channels is that since Lennon will still have a free 140160,000 worth of wages, as well as 1418m from sales, will allow Neil to make an attempt at signing a new permanent Talisman for the Hoops, the prefered options of course being Robbie Keane or Craig Bellamy.

We'll have to wait and see.

"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"


So even tho u put 'not sure bout the last two' in how on earthdid u come up with Ferdinand still starting and Hargreaves still alive?? I will be very surprised if either of these players can do a good job for utd again. they may come back and do decent jobs but that's not good enough inmy opinion for a team with high ambitions. these areas are the ones we should be looking at never mind 30+m on another striker that's the only position we have been giving youth a chance recently and getting results. full backs are looking alright potenial wise but rafael needs to pull his finger out when defending or he will be out.


youth along with signings i say not fm style teams your coming out with.


even this assembled squad uve imagined would take £150M minimum and although i belive we have near 100 ish can't see another 50+m coming frm anywhere if half the team is retiring.


Also good spelling on Kuszczak i thought that was another inspired signing till i realised ur illiterate as well as a turd

Liverpool have received a 1 million pound offer from Lecce for their young Hungarian Krisztian Nemeth. Liverpool have also 80% tied up the deal bringing in Victor Caseres who had an impressive world cup campaign with Paraguay. He may command a transfer fee in the region of 6 million. As for Defour, both RH and Defour himself are keen to make the deal a reality. However SAF may be interested, and may try and scupper a straightforward deal by also bidding for the Belgian playmaker. Defour's Standard Leige teammate Axel Witsel is also close to signing for Villa. Standard are resigned to losing both players.

"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.


FJR" what a load of rubbish, why would nufc sell carroll to a club skinter than us when stoke were prepared to offer £7/8m (rangers could never match that never mind the wages) for him until he quite clearly declared he was staying at nufc no matter what, you can check this out and im sure the ed will confirm it it was on just about every football news site when the story broke. he won't be going to jail for his alleged troubles also seeing as there all full again and the new govt policy on sending people to jail. and no he doesn't want to play for scotland either pearce called him under orders from cappello before the world cup to tell him to wait as he would be in the england squad after the world cup.. hougton being clever and filling the squad up like we need as the first 11 is ok we just a quality cf to start and score goals hence bidding for mevlut erdinc, houghton probably has no more than 10m to spend and imo will plow it all into buying a cf once hes got some free/loans in to cover as squad players.

HEART OF MIDLOTHIAN NEWS. paul hartley has been seen in a edinburgh hotel with hearts director of football as he did not go to sweden with bristol fc there new manager does not have hartlley in his plans. shoud be done by the end of the week

Makes sense that he goes to Hearts, unfortunately for us (BCFC). But the main reason he is on his way is, allegedly, because of his part in Gary Johnson's departure. He, allegedly again, was one of two players who got the knives out and stuck 'em in GJ's back. Coppell mentioned that he knew who the backstabbers were when he arrived and he doesn't put up with that sort of thing. The other player will probably be on his way soon (or just sidelined if no one wants him), but he won't be missed as much as Hartley as he's a bit of a liability at the back these days. Class midfielder Hartley, our big loss and your gain. Hope he does well for you.

Mcfadden signs on Monday for 4 mil.

Seriously would love it if it was true but bullard has tried to screw us for more cash, if reports are true. And Campbell looks like he's doing the same. Would rather have bellamy than keane and that's more likely. And mcfadden is wary of the old firm goldfish bowl. More likely is bellamy loan, a good centre back although rogne and hooiveld will be class next season. Probably a midfielder Lawrence I'd think. And a striker hooper, stokes that kinda level. Also expect Lennon to use this trip to US to look at some players based there.

Can someone please please tell me how inter are skint??
keep reading about inter being skint, how??
is this just to justify why they have not already bid for mascherano or is this fact???

barcelona swaped eto and 3040m for ibrahimovic (sure brucy was involved, because this was sale of the century for inter), this season they won the domestic double and champions league which would have generated at least 60m euros, rafa would not have signed for inter if he had no money for transfers, especially with other offers on the table.
So unless i'm very much mistaken they have money to spend..nearer the truth would be the fact rafa (whilst @ liverpool) valued mascherano @50m, so would prefare to wait and see if he hands in a transfer request, (which would drive down the valuation a little) especially as barca are struggling a little in the finance dept. other than that not too many teams have shown an interest in him, i personally like him as a player, but would have much prefared to see him leave last season than xabi alonso(no this is not hind sight , i said it at the time, ), there are many players who could do his job at a fraction of the cost.
so just wondering if anyone could tell me what inter have done with all thier money?? ed any ideas ace?

Ed i am a united fan but i live in plymouth and know a few people related to football in the area. do you have any more argyle news? and have you heard about the price fro scott sinclair? {editor's note – ah right, that clears it up, I was a little confused. The price for Sinclair was supposedly nominal, which it would have to be as they don't have much to spend. I don't know why it is such a low price, could be a lack of interest in him or, as a friend of mine is adamant about, that Chelsea want a formal feeder club arrangement with Argyle.}

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.}

kalas is going back to his old club for a season long loan so won't replace bosingwa but you're forgetting arguably our best player last season, ivanovic who will play on the right even though id much rather have him in the centre with terry and bowingwa on the right if he's fit

Just seen a livepool fan's rumour tht they will sign fabio contrao, thts fair enough, but he gave a 6.5 mill price tag which is ridiculous. also i think defour will most likely be at united rather than liverpool.

ed, any news on fabio contrao transferring? last i heard bayern were keen but put off by benficas high price, and before tht i heard chelsea already had 1st option on him {editor's note – I can't see him moving to Chelsea, apart from Zhirkov they have two top prospects at left back. I don't think anyone is even close to matching Benfica's price yet, but towards the end of the transfer window that might change as teams get more desperate for a left back.}

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!
To this guy, Thomson left because a club met Rangers valuation for him, nothing to do with him wanting more money, his contract had a year left and talks had not been scheduled never mind discussed! FACT!!
Walter will get 2 players with that money, possibly McArthur and Conway. Oh and the season tickets are all snapped up for next season, I see Celtic are still trying to sell theirs

In regard to Stoke's "Big Black Guy"

Could it be Victor Obinna of Inter as he hinted at Stoke transfer on Goal.com

Ed, any news on Arsenal and Sebastian Frey at all? {editor's note – nothing mate, it is all conjecture at the moment.}

Utd issues. First the squad have too many 30+ players to be a force next season, a 40 year old keeper, several 35+ year old midfield players and several 30+ defenders. Seems to suit other teams that this fact is being ignored. There is a big rebuilding job and Sir Alex knows it, he knows the squad is too old but pressure is on. Season Ticket sales are poor and corporate are down. However, that in itself adds pressure to buy. Sir Alex said one player but rumour is that it will be the one midfield player he needs. A striker will depend whether he can shift Berbatov with the salary he gets and finally the Vidic situation. Everyone looks at Sir Alex's comments on Oezil and Sneijder however he said he hadnt bid not that he wouldnt. He always says he is happy with his squad, it doesn't stop him buying. Comments need to be understood, Oezil said he would see out his contract (therefore going for nothing next season). Would the directors of Werder Bremen allow that, or would the comment add to pressure to sell him for a reasonable price. Was the supposed offer for Sneijder a message that for 29M one of the best players in the world can be bought, so don't ask a stupid price for a 21yr old in the last year of a contract. Sir Alex often does things people don't expect, a rebuild is needed and he will not be retiring with a whimper. So expect a couple of interesting months.
