Loovens to sign for celtic from cardiff for 3 million.also malgung from wolfsburg for 4 million.
To the guy who said clarence seedorf will sign for rangers, not true, he retired from football 2 months ago. martin bain in milan, however is true, but not to sign gattuso, we couldnt afford his wages, and although he said himself, that one day he would like to play for rangers again. the only way it will happen is when hes an OAP.
Rangers will sign a yougster on a long term loan from AC milan, this will the thing for both Celtic and Rangers to do in the future, as they cant compete in the tranfer market with the big money in england.
Maloney will not sign for rangers, nor will James Mcfadden(his family would disown him)
Youngster– AC Milan
Lovenkrands–Schalke (year loan)
also heard that they may try to sign a brazillan player, dont get to exited, seams to be the guy from FBK kaunas, probably vis hearts LOL
In response to the person who said Aston Villa were prepared to do a u–turn and accept £16m for Gareth Barry from Liverpool, and then went on to say that the ofer could not now be accepted as it had already been rejected, while also claiming that he was a lawyer:Stop telling downright lies, you imbecile.
Anyway, I'm just writing to say that Gokhan Inler will alsmost certainly be Arsenal's last signing of the summer. The player has already agreed personal terms via his agent, all that remains is for the Gunners and Udinese to reach an agreement. once this is sorted the other formailities such as medical etc will quickly be completed. I fully expect that this will all be sorted within the next week or so.
Hi all I went on holiday this year to spain and I stayed at my wifes parents who are spanish like she is we live in britain and her folks live in spain we all went to her parents friends in barcelona for a posh mansion party for their celebrity friends. STRAIGHT TO THE POINT – I met Thierry Henry who was at the party i knew he would be turning up I didnt think I would meet him but I did and was speaking to him about Barcelona he said he`s leaving and has already agreed with barca a return to the premiership and 4 deals all from premier clubs are on the table including Arsenal he said he`s coming back on transfer deadline day to ARSENAL. EXCLUSIVE STORY FOR THE PRESS.
Moyes will be manager of the year, we may not spend but we don't need to, we'll climb 2 places this season. .3rd place he we come!!!!!
Why oh why oh why does us blues never have any luck in the transfer market. Everyone looks at us & then we get pipped last minute. For instance Arshavin was on his way, the muppet then has a good euro championship & hey. . everyone wants him!!!!!! I'm a fed up die hard blue. I'm afraid to say that my old fella is a vet & the Yak's missus brought their pet budgie in the other day to get its claws cut. She said her fella was getting a bit restless with the lack of new faces coming into the club. However Moyesy was allegedly in Spain yesterday negotiating a loan deal for a world class striker who is interesting the mancs & them lot across the park.
Boothroyd has stated he is after a striker and in the reliable watford observer it says he is after gregorz rasiak.
Barry to Liverpool £12m after playing in UEFA Cup price now drops and liverpool pay up. Will happen in the next week he can play Champions league in Feb. Also winger coming in from spain world class – Class of his own in next week.
To 'LFC Forever', vagner love, moutinho and m'bia all started tht they wanted to play fot everton and did not 'laugh in theri face'. Real rumours
EFC to sign:
Juarez – 2m
M'bia – 7m
Ochoa – 7m
Smith – 3m
Also expect a bd for Tiago – 8m and a striker, possibly Milito – 8m
After the signing of Aaron on loan, expect Pedro Mendes to move to Ibrox from Portsmouth for around £2.5m. A £4m bid has been made for Bresciano but hes more keen on the playing in the EPL or stay in Italy. The talk of a Milan player coming to Ibrox is true but IT IS NOT Gattuso or Seedorf and i'm not sure who exactly. Another 2 signings will be made, more than likely another midfielder (Davis) and a defender (Reynolds or Berra).
Loovens, what a clown you are!
Berbatov and david villa to man u 4 60m!!!!
Haha to the person that said arda turan and inler to newcastle. Arda said he wants to play in italy and said hed rather stay at galatasaray. And inler is going to arsenal for a fee of 11m, expect the transfer to be complete and him to be unveiled on the 21st with the number 18 shirt. Giovinco could also be coming to arsenal after very positive talks in beijing.
Walsall FC are set to complete the signing of Liverpool striker Craig Lindfield on a season long loan deal.
Plymouth Argyle have sign winger Craig Noone from Southport for an initial £50k, rising to £110k based on appearances. There is also a 10% sell–on clause. Noone was interesting Everton, Manchester City and Nottingham Forest who all had him watched on a number occasions, but Plymouth have been first off the mark and he signed a 2–year deal and has been allocated the No 23 shirt.
Argyle boss Paul Sturrock also looks set to allow French midfield Yoan Folly to go out on loan, with Yeovil and Exeter the most likely destination.
Sturrocks interest in Fulham's David Healy has ended after the club agreed a fee with Fulham but could not agree terms with the player. Sturrock will now turn his attention to Tottenham's Tomas Pekhart in a 6–month loan deal, and finalise the move for Stoke midfield Glenn Whelan and Man Utd youngster Darron Gibson.
After the champions league exit and the sale of Carlos Cuellar, Walter Smith is on the verge of being sacked by rangers. The rumour today is that if he is sacked which will most likely be in late october, David Moyes will take over.
Everton will make two signings before the deadline. The two players are Alan Smith, 5 million and Manual Fernandes on a permanent for 7 million. Thats the money from AJ's sale and Evertons transfer budget.
Liverpool will make two more signings, the two signings will be for each wing.
Oh yes, Arsenal have two majority shareholders who are American and Russian. Lets be honest you don't have a clue about football.
Watch out for some movement in and out of Home Park over the next week. Plymouth Argyle moves:
Yoan Folly (Yeovil Town) 6–month loan
Ashley Barnes (Exeter City) 6–month loan
Gary Sawyer (Bristol City) £220k
Damien McCrory (Truro City) 2–month loan
Steven MacLean (Leeds) 2–month loan
Craig Noone (Southport) £50k+ done
Glenn Whelan (Stoke) £500k
Darron Gibson (Man Utd) 6–month loan
Danny Welbeck (man Utd) 2–month loan
Sandro Burki (FC Aarau) £180k
Tomas Pekhart (Tottenham) 6–month loan
Hyppia to rangers hes right age for dads army berra to rangers no chance romanov hates old firm and wont sell to either of them unless their old and past it pressley and hartley or are diddled by wigan or viking via rangers mcfadden rumour wont go away but at 6m i think its non existent loovens going to sellik poss return of maloney
Anton Ferdinand is close to agreeing terms with Sunderland over a possible move that will go through after the opening game against Liverpool. Ferdinand has been invited to the game on saturday afternoon so keep and eye out!!!
Glasgow Celtic are in the process of securing the servies of a player called Rick O'Shea, younger brother of John O'Shea, after playing him in a bounce game during the week were he impressed
Cardiff City – Gleen Loovens will sign for Rangers for 2.8m (unfortunetly) Lewis Nytanga wil be brought in for around 1m. Cardiff have also got Keith Andrews on their wanted list.
PSV Eindhoven are about to announce the signing of Kerlon from Brazil, the fee will only be £4 million and a massive sell on clause of 40%.
The big shock is that they have already agreed a fee with Chelsea for him and will be sold in a years time for £14 million if he meets expectations, meaning PSV will make only £4.4 million profit. The real sweetner for PSV though is Boulharouz for free as part of the agreement. Chelsea had tryed to buy Kerlon (Big Phil a big fan) first but the player chose PSV for 1st team football instead. Chelsea have this option to buy him for 2 years to give him time to settle, but they will insist he has english lessons while in Holland. Watch this space.
Tottenham to complete signing of Arshavin next week for £17.2 million, and will wrap their spending spree with Santa Cruz for £18 million but only if Berba leaves. This will give a front line of: Bentley, Modric, Dos Santos, Arshavin and Santa Cruz/Berbatov, with Huddelstone mopping up behind them. Looks good but theres not much in reserve and the defence still looks shakey. Will be good to watch though. Go Spurs!
"It is amazing how arsenal are in the top 4 in EPL without any foreign money
especially when one of your biggest board members is a russian who recently tried to buy out many of the other board members
oh and is your ground not called the emirates stadium, im sure this is a massive middle eastern company
good your clued up on your own club"
Yeah but the English boardmembers who hav owned Arsenal for generations told him to stuff it and signed a contract saying they wont sell up for another few years. Yeah its called the emerates and that paid for a quater of the stadium so we didnt have to sell our club out to a yank of a russian. Is it really that much diffrent from having sponsership on your shirt. I think not.
Massive Rumour from Ibrox that Walter Smith is to offer former fans favourite Jorg Albertz a 1 year deal. Albertz played 7 games for Clyde at the end of last year and Smith feels his experience is a neccessity to try and reclaim the SPL title.
Rangers are desperate to land Hamilton youngster James McCarthy but fear a similiar fan backlash to the Kenny Miller signing as they know the ibrox faithful wont accept a Republic of Ireland internationalist.
Also, sources from Murray Park say that a spending spree from Rangers along with another unsuccesful season could see Rangers go to the wall.
Toffees will not sign anyone before the weekend, i am the bluest blue and can't believe whats going on. Smith and Tiago are squad players so i can see the point of just adding numbers but there are better 'numbers' around. Moutinho, M'bia are both wanted by their clubs so only a stupid bid will pry them away, do we have that??
I think i may give up on football and watch everton ladies lol !! :)
A deal has been agreed between Arsenal and Middlesborough for England under 21 star Justin Hoyte. The fee is yet to be announced however personal terms are expected to be negotiated in the next 48 hours.
Also, a 12 million pound bid from Man City for Roque Santa Cruz has been rejected by Blackburn. Santa Cruz has said in an interview today that he is happy at Blackburn.
Elsewhere, Arsene Wenger has announced that there will definitely be a new arrival at the Emirates before the second leg of the champions league qualifier against FC Twente, but not before Sataurdays game against West Brom. Expect this to be a centre mid.
Hull City have today made a double signing, one being a one year loan signing of Wigans Marlon King, the other making the loan signing of Antony Gardener peremenant, at a club record fee of 3.5 million.
2 days to go
Those of you out there who are saying Liverpool dont have any money for Barry you must be smoking something, did we or did we not go for Barry before we went for Keane. .we did, was the price seen as too high before we went for Keane. .it was. But then we Rafa seemed to find in his back pocket a handy £19 mill for keane. And yes we all know that Barry for what he is is overpriced, but the valuation isn't based on him just as a player, like others on this sight have pointed out, we're trying to take Villa's star player and Captain, there most loyal servent of what ten years, the valuation is what Barry is worth to Villa.
We wouldnt have even looked at getting another centre midfielder if it wasnt Barry, its only because we all know how well he can play with Gerrard. Otherwise everyone who loves the club will tell you that Alonso is an awesome player one we love having. We have an abundance of quality centre mids, what we need is wingers. Silva is never going to happen, so why dont we all stop writing it is, Joe Cole I would love, but deals between the top 4 happen very very rarely, so we'll just have to wait and see who we get.
I dont have any rumours to add, or any 'facts' but i've been able to use something many of you dont have in your tool box. .some old fashioned COMMON SENSE.
Just one more quick word, i love coming on hear reading rumours because the are some of you out there who write rumours that are based in fact/ common sense, but what makes some of you sit down at your computer and think . ."I'm bore, you know what i'll do, i'll go on football rumours and write a lie" . . Is that seriously how low your lifes have reached that to forfill your time you take the time to come up with and lie on a website. Sad eh.
To the man u fan who said 19 years and counting, youve made your self look stupid cos firstly liverpool won it in 1990 18 years ago , secondly even if it was 19 years ago then thats 19 years youve had and you still havnt passed our tally of league and european cups yes that is a long time isnt it. barry to liverpool in january for half the price .
Palace hope to have David Healy and Alan Lee before there next home game
It is very likely that the mystery midfield signing for aresnal fc will be either anthony annan, torsten frings,or gokhan inler. Barry and johnson will play tonight for their respected clubs in uefa cup, xavi alonso cuptied yesterday as well as yaya toure. Wenger would like to sign giovinco but juventus will not sell most likely to happen next summer depending on how he performs this season for juventus.
Rumours of Signings arriving at Glasgow airport. Rangers new signing from palermo – Bresciano. Also seen keeping him company was Rino gatusso and clarence seedorf. Has Murray pulled the rabbit out the hat after the anger of the Cuellar sale???
