– Arsenal la dude– –
Firstly I am a Man United fan and although I would love Michael Owen at Old Trafford, he has said that he is staying with Newcastle. Apparently Gary Neville has had a bust up with SAF, and Sir Alex is considering giving Rooney the captaincy.
Meanwhile, Newcastle made an audacious enquiry for Ronaldinho but were put off by a £63 million price tag. Mike Ashley could afford it, but SA is not one to waste money and will turn to Riquelme or Diego.
Sunderland will complete the signing of Kieron Richardson on Monday and the "underachiever" could flourish under Keano. However, Keane wants three more players and those are Patrik Berger, Alfonso Alves and Craig Gordon.
This will be the best ever Premier League this year so lets enjoy it.
Man United forever
1. Man United
I work as a security guard at st james' park and on Thursday afternoon I took both beye's agent and DECO's agent in to talk to big Sam over a possible move, rumours around the staff here say that new billionaire owner Mike Ashley is ready to break the world transfer record by snapping up Ronaldinho and Wayne Bridge to conclude Newcastle's Summer spending, also I have heard for members of staff that Oba Martins is on his way to Juve in a £13 million deal and will be followed by Emre who is unsettled by the arrival of Joey Barton. 100 percent fact. Big Sam is also after young players for the future such as crag Gordon from Hearts, Sam believes shay given is coming towards the ed of his career and sees the Scottish ace as an ideal replacement. Sam is also set to make Michael Owen captain as an insentive for the England forward to say at st james'
Rumours abound about certain Man United players linked with Everton at the min, although the only one I can really see being persued is Alan Smith as Richardson seem to be over priced and heading for Sunderland, not sure why thoguh as was not it Roy Keane who branded Richardson as "not good enough for a club of United's stature" during his last few months at the club, I would not be too impressed if I was a Mackem siging a player for £5 million that the manager did not rate not that long ago, still spose they need somebody to help avoid the drop as the squad is clearly not good enough regaurdless of the gaffer?
Anyway, if Smith does move to Goodison expect to see Beattie shipped out for around £4 million, not quite sure who'll pay this but hey we'll happily take it LOL
Everton also need a left winger/mid and possibly a right back so expect a bit of interest in Luke Young soon, although He would prefer to stay in London. the Hammers anyone? If no left sided player is brought in then Andy Van De Mayde maybe given a stay of execution at the club to make up numbers to cope with a hectic fixture schedule what with Europe and all, maybe also see a few youngsters bled into the first team this season too as Moyse is rightly reluctant to spend over the odds on average players. What ever happened to ambition in the game eh, it's all about the moolah theses days even below par players are going for 4– £6 million and big contracts to clubs who just wave a wad at them, We all know Nugent wanted to come so why not just wait and He would of got his wish. still his loss, and same goes for Richardson, wheres's his pride creeping up to Roy's when if hangs ten could join a more ambitious, bigger club
The games gone mad
Oh and for record Arteta was voted "best of the rest"/"most underrated player" of most polls last season so he mustn't be doing all that bad eh, I personally think that he would get in most sides in the Premiership including the so called "big four."
Still it's a game of opinions is not it
Curtis Davies will not start the season at West Bromwich. The big rumour down here is he is off to Manchester City. £8.5 million and a player in exchange. the truth is out there
It looks like prince–boateng is moving from hertha berlin to Tottenham for around £5 million. other rumours:
Ronaldinho > AC Milan 40– 60 million
C. Fabregas > Real Madrid £18 million
D. Rose > Tottenham 1– £2 million
L. Baines > Newcastle £4 million
Deco > Newcastle £12 million
L. Guily > Tottenham £6 million
M. Owen > Man United £12 million
O. Martins > Arsenal £13 million
H. Ghaly > Birmingham 3– £4 million
H. Mido > Man C £2 million
F. Ljunberg > Fiorentina £6 million
All these are just Rumours. not factS.

Everton have deals in place for:

Was out with Mark Davies of Wolves last night, Tottenham have enquired about his availability, but he is currently negotiating a new five year contract with Wolves. He is a boyhood Wolves fan and is not going anywhere. He also confirmed Wolves will sign one more player before the start of the new season. That is Michael Mancienne from Chelsea on a season long loan deal. 100 percent fact
Liverpool perhaps lining up for a defender as number 2 shirt is left free.
Are we all ready? As the end of the transfer window looms, the debate is underway over which of the big four will claim the EPL this season.
Liverpool has joined Man United and Chelsea as spending superpowers, with Kroenke being linked to Arsenal, they too may follow suit. I have noticed on this site that fans from each of these clubs have argued that such and such a player is overrated, or so and so paid well over the odds for Carlos Kickaball. This is the contentious nature of football and everybody is entitled to there opinion.
Man United Man United have done what Liverpool of old did at the height of their powers. They have not rested on their laurels, investing heavily, despite winning the league. They are always going to be there or thereabouts but where they were fortunate with injuries last time out, AF has chosen to add more depth to his squad. I do not think many players will leave, at least not this season. Place: first/second
Chelsea The 'Special One' has been surprisingly quiet in the close season. I do not think Chelsea are skint but I suspect RA has most definitely cut the purse strings. The emphasis must be that JM must prove his coaching skills and he can win the title without spending mills. The rift between JM and RA has been healed. Or has it? I think JM's days are numbered by RA and as a result of behind the scenes in–fighting, Chelsea may struggle. Place:fourth
Liverpool Benitez now enjoys the luxury of shopping in Harrods. They are playing catch up in terms of real quality across the squad instead of making do. Liverpool were great attacking under Evans. Houllier then shored things up at the back, at the expense of our attack. Benitez now has a solid defensive unit. If he can add attacking flair, Liverpool will be a force once again. And the spending will not stop there. They may struggle to win the EPL this season, but they will push the Champions to the last game of the season. And turning unproven players into World Class has been Wenger's game for years, Liverpool though need more urgency hence the prices they have had to pay for players. Place: first/second.
Arsenal Arsene Wenger is very canny and I think Arsenal's young team will come on for last year. If they can replace talisman Henry and (if any one can do it Arsene Wenger can) they will not have the bad season everyone thinks they will have. Place: third
Whatever happens we are in for the most exciting title race ever. So hold onto your seats and let the debate and the games begin.
Stevie G 'The Original', YNWA
Hearts goalkeeper Craig Gordon to sign a lucrative contract next week with Middlesburgh and not Sunderland as is continually reported
Arsenal rumours exclusive
If you guys remember recently I gave you Arsenal rumours and since then then all my rumours have come true, Arsenal signed Sagna on the day I said and he got the number I said, I also said Arsenal will sign Yohann Gouffran for £2 million then loan him back next season, wait and see as it's still to happen. However I did say Arsenal will sign a winger and I left that name up to you guys well I have news exclusive that when the Reyes Madrid deal and ljungberg Fiorentina deal go through Arsenal will sign a left sided winger by the name of "Angel Di Maria" for an undisclosed fee, everything is done and it will be finalised and announced after the 2 deals above and after the under 20 World Cup where his playing very well for Argentina.
This guy is incredible and coule solve our wide problems, remember my name and. ;)
GoOnEr 4 LyF
Man United news.
Tevez will have Man. United medical next Tuesday or Wednesday and will Officially sign on Thursday on a two year loan deal with a view to permanent. Kieran Richardson will move to Sunderland on Monday for £5.5 million. Alan Smith will probably stay at Old Trafford for one more year same with Louis Saha. IF they do get sold expect Smith to go for £7 million and Saha £9 million. When Richardson leaves Sir Alex might go after Blackburn's Gamst Pedersen for £12 million. That is all. BT.
exclusive lfc news
Mancini is on the verge of joining Liverpool. he will be the last attacking player RAFA is looking for. if Roma does not sell him Rafa will be back for Quaresma or some other established right winger.
With hicks hinting for onemore signing expect Rafa to bid for Quaresma as he had a bid in the region of £14 million rejected Porto want £20 million thogh
Interesting to see another contributor linking the Owls to a £2 million deal for Cameron Jerome. My understanding was that we were signing Kevin Phillips for the same fee (we had already considered him earlier in pre–season and included him on a shortlist of forward targets). However, Jerome does make more sense as he is within the age bracket the club are looking to sign. Phillips has a more limited life span as a top forward. Jerome? Possibly. Phillips? Also possible.
Arsenal will sign rodrigo palacio. who was FC Barcelona bound but the deal never went through. for arnd 21.5 million euros
