ITS TRUE EVERYONE LIVERPOOL FC HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER AND I HAVE THE PROOF EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING FORAfter coming on this site for the last year I can comfirm that the great footballing powerhouse that is Liverpool fc has been taken over by thousands of complete muppets.But where is the proof you ask well and this is the truly ingenius part you need look no further than this website and you will see hundreds of the wnkers claiming to know everything that is going on inside my beloved Liverpool.
I for one am glad and can't wait for them to tell me everything from the date it will be made official to the transfers (that arent in my morning issue of the daily mail) and even what time Gerrard had his morning log.
So from me and every Liverpool supporter on this site we look forward to hearing your next oh so credible words of wisdom.

Can anyone confirm who this was outside celtics ground today? just after he muscled in on my friends photo, 2 security guys led him over to a big fancy car. i thought it looked like neil lennon, thought everyone was away to america?

To me he looks like Bellamy.If it is then photo might've been taken last time he played at the club rather than today.Hope it was taken today tho.

Jungle Bhoy.

Peter Whittingham has been offered a 3 year deal with Newcastle.

If he agrees to sign, the fee will be £1.75m which will help Cardiff in their debt struggles.

If David Jones becomes Fulham boss, Michael Chopra will move with him for £3m. David Jones will loan Simon Davies and Andy Johnson to Cardiff.

Ross McCormack will join Blackpool, and Cardiff will get Jack Collison on a seasonlong loan from West Ham United. Stephen Caldwell is also joining Cardiff on a 2 year deal.

 

15 Jul 2010 23:26:57
According to Sky Sports News West Ham have been blown out the water in their bid to sign Loic Remy, as Liverpool and Tottenham have entered negotiations with Nice. The player himself says he favours the Merseyside club, but that Spurs are also an attractive proposition.

15 Jul 2010 23:18:36
ED, any of these true about what i was told tonight.. i was around west hams ground and got told that west ham have bid for ronaldinho £10mil (shirt sales no10 shirt will recover money spent) huntelaar £8.5mil (new no9), traore arsenal £2mil (no3), hitzlsperger new (no5) and finally a winger/striker on loan will be hernandez from manu (no11). because all could be pulled off if players want regular games {editor's note – I don't know anything about the Ronaldinho or Huntelaar ones, but the Traore one would make sense as he is definitely up for grabs this summer. Hasn't Hitzlsperger already signed for you? As for Hernandez, I don't have a clue what united want to do with him, I doubt they will loan him out before the close of the transfer window though, just in case. The loan window doesn't close until after the permanent window so they can do the loan deals after they have their squad sorted.}

 

15 Jul 2010 23:20:52
The rumor is eagles is of to Celtic so to is Daryl murphy..also miller and whitaker are of to boro..got to say the rangers team still looks the stronger out the old firm.best goalie, best defence, best midfield, even on stickers nowsteboro

 

15 Jul 2010 23:23:51
Benfica have signed Liverpool midfielder Damien Plessis for 600k, Ayala, Cavalieri, El Zhar and Pacheco all tipped to follow him out of the door.

Roy Hodgson has admitted he is finding it hard to convince stars to stay, he must mean Gerrard and Mascherano as he is yet to have a proper chat with Torres.

 

15 Jul 2010 23:26:47
To whoever said Pete Waterman was signing Walsall, and that there'd be an announcement today.

Well mate, there's nothing at all on the website about it so reckon you're telling porkies. Plus Jeff Bonser makes too much money renting the ground to want to quit as chairman.

Waterman is a Walsall fan, true, but has not recently made an indication that he wants to buy the club.

Another season of underachievement commences..

 

15 Jul 2010 22:59:29
Remy has said spurs and Liverpool have both bid between 1415 million euros. He prefers Liverpool but spurs are very interesting. Source is daily mail online. Also joe cole is anfield bound bet365 and skybet.what you think ed.? {editor's note – I haven't seen a lot of Remy to be honest, French football is not something I spend a lot of time watching. I really hope Cole goes anywhere but Liverpool, he should have stayed at Chelsea! If you are asking me how likely they are to sign, Cole is his choice so I don't have a clue, but Remy is highly unlikely to be joining.}

 

15 Jul 2010 23:08:15
Any1 know who are the 2 players to sign for Dundee tomorrow

 

15 Jul 2010 23:12:20
Arda Turan set to sign for Liverpool by end of July a deal has been accepted around 13mil to be announced shortly, according to my source Spurs offered the same but he opted for Liverpool good on him. He will fly to Anfield next week for medical and to finalize details just as soon as he returns form his Holiday not sure of dates for that. Expect Joe Cole to follow at around the same time

 

15 Jul 2010 23:12:36
I work closely with SochauxMontbliard in france many reports have linked our highly rated under 19 forward Cedric Bakambu with a move to Arsenal they have scouted him for many years.

Deal to be completed within the next week, the price is said to be in the region of 4 million euro's (3.4 million GBP)

 

15 Jul 2010 22:54:25
I would just like to say that any bristol city fans thinking that chris eagles is going to join them might aswell just stop thinking now coz he is not joining them. he turned down rangers and he has agreed AFTER holding talks with brian laws that he does not want to leave burnley coz they have the team to go straight back to the premiership and the fact that alex ferguson adviced him to come to burnley in the first place after burnley put in an offer for him. so remember this, EAGLES IS STAYING AT BURNLEY

burnley are also rumoured to be in the hunt for cardiff star peter whittingham, after the sale of joe ledley cardiff are still in debt and offloading another major player would ease those worries of a financial meltdown for the welsh club, it is thought that burnley will complete the signing of whittingham when the first team are on there tour of singapore and he will start training with his new team mates when they return.

Any Southampton rumours editor? {editor's note – only thing I have heard is the Schneiderlein to a Prem team. Well there have been a number of enquiries, so I have heard, Bolton being one of the teams that have shown firm interest.}

To who said this:

are u his agent? he's in scotland will head to USA yes after the loan deal sorted. BELLAMY ALWAYS STATED UNFINISHED BUSINESS WITH CELTIC

Ok i could be going out on a limb here but why would he finalise a loan to celtic THEN head back out to the US to meet up with the city squad?


thats where celtic are atm , he must have meant that

15 Jul 2010 22:59:24
Heard wee rumour tonight that celtic are on the verge of making their fifth closed season signing with the capture of murphy from sunderland don't know a great deal about the guy can anybody tell me more about him. lenny's bringing back the thunder.paulbhoy

To this fella,

15 Jul 2010 20:24:27
Pne ins :

carl dickinson 500k
matt phillips 400k
nicky butt free
ritchie de laet loan
gary hooper elliot and nolan exchange


i can tell you that preston have won the race for gary hooper's signature and have given stephen elliot in exchange and nolan on loan for season with view to permanent deal.

This seems a little optimistic, Ferguson has said to quote the Lancashire Evening Post.
"The new chairman has come in and we've worked well together. I've given him a list of players I want and he's already got two of them with Craig Morgan and Wayne Brown coming in this week.

"A few lads have gone out of the club in the last few days which helps us in terms of financing new signings.

"Ideally I'd like another three or four, things are ongoing at the moment and they can take time to sort out.

"It would be nice to get another deal done while were out here but realistically it will be after we get home.

"I know my targets, we haven't got millions to spend, so we'll wait and see what happens. If it's a player from the Premier League you want on loan, sometimes you have to wait for them to do preseason training at their club."

This to me hints he is waiting on the loan market but if not Scunny want around 2.5million for Hooper ok they prob won't get that but even if its 1.5milion he has already stated he hasn't got millions to spend make of it what you will.

 

15 Jul 2010 22:14:08
I have heared from a number of people that the brother of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan (Man City owner) is closing in and is due to finalise a deal for completion of the takeover of Liverpool.
Now, I don't post many rumours (although previously have posted one correct relevant to a Leeds UTD transfer of a Liverpool born lad) and appreciate that this rumour may have been whispered about and published before, but the Chinese whisper around Liverpool is that this takeover is imminent. Please believe me when I say that I wouldn't just post it if I believe it wasn't true because I wouldn't I read enough fabricated footy manager rumours on here to not fall for that se and I don't think i'm as naive to believe all the street rumours this time i've got a feeling something is brewing up. {editor's note – the most he can do is place a bid mate. This is all from a pack of lies that Dunk from Koptalk fed to people to increase his subscription base mate.}

 

15 Jul 2010 22:14:15
Bellamy seen in glasgow city hotel"

was this Fred Bellamy cos Craig's been in the USA for the last 4 days!!

are u his agent? he's in scotland will head to USA yes after the loan deal sorted. BELLAMY ALWAYS STATED UNFINISHED BUSINESS WITH CELTIC

look at citys website you tool, photos of him training in usa for the past 4 days. if you can't afford the wages of some 2nd rate crock like bullard then you certainly can't afford a 10 million transfer fee and 80 grand a week.

 

15 Jul 2010 22:15:17
Celtic News:

Celtic will announce the signings of Daryl Murphy and Mexican international Juarez in the next day or so. The Juarez deal has been known for a few days but this will be concluded by the end of the week, the delay has been down to negotiating the sell on clause in his contract, which will be a four year deal.

Juarez is already in America with the hoops squad, whilst 6 foot two Murphy is expected to join up before their game with Manchester United.

The Agent.

 

15 Jul 2010 21:54:19
In response to:

Whats the story about the defender joining newcastle? heard a rumour david wheater was joining but i don't know if this is the one the editor is talking about. please could i hear the full story? {editor's note all I got told was that it was a centre back that they are going for, I don't think he knew anymore to give me the details to be honest. Other than he believed the budget to be around £2.5m for transfer fees or signing on fee, so in his words I was not to expect a big signing. Is Wheater coming to the end of his contract or available on a free?}

Very good chance it'll be Marc Wilson of Portsmouth, comes highly recomened from Mike Williamson. If he does sign he WILL NOT be replacing Steven Taylor. Kadar will be loaned out (possibly Carlise or Norwich) leaving CB of Colo, Taylor, WIlliamson, Wilson

The Real Madrid story may inolve Raul (not that one) young pacy player who plays for Castilla

 

15 Jul 2010 22:04:03
I was speaking to a family friend who works very closely at PNE. On asking him if Darren Ferguson would be getting any of his Dads players on loan (Man U), he said they had enquired about Welbeck and couple of others, but has been told that Blackpool are supposedly getting a striker on loan, he didn't know who, but the Welbeck deal was dependant on Man U's transfer activity, post the Blackpool deal.

I assume it would be Macheda or Diouf to Blackpool.

 

15 Jul 2010 22:05:47
I expect rangers to sign mcarthur Conway and goodwillie although I wouldn't be surprised if Walter pulled a significant loan deal out the hat. Not worried by the names linked with Celtic they've lost keane kamara brafielt boruc and probably mcgeady , ledley might have some quality but if so why was only Stoke and possibly west brom interested. Time will tell.

15 Jul 2010 21:36:29
TO THE fick PERSON WHO PUT THIS!!! Liverpool's Christian Purslow has been cornered by his Real Madrid counterpart over the valuation of skipper Steven Gerrard.The Liverpool midfielder's agent has told the Spanish giants that Gerrard wants a move to Madrid after personal terms were agreed 2 months ago. Gerrard was given assurances by Reds Managing Director Christian Purslow that his exit would be approved "without problems" providing he publicly backed the appointment of new boss Roy Hodgson which he did.Purslow was desperate to hire Hodgson knowing that he would be unable to prevent the sale of key players as he would have to come in under the terms made clear to him before taking the job.. and so funny how iker casillias said in a press conference ashley cole was in talks about a move

15 Jul 2010 21:52:03
To this guy:

Barca have confirmed they have 50 million (£41.7m) to spend this summer, and that isn't enough for Fabregas. Sooo all you hating and saying Fabregas is leaving are WRONG!!

Fabregas isn't worth £40m, he is only a back up player for Spain, Silva is that too & was sold for £24m, sure Barca will up their originally offer for him but he will end up going to Barca for around £35m.

 

15 Jul 2010 21:12:52
To this fella,

This might be just wishfull thinking but i am starting to believe that we (leeds) might be trying to sign hooper on the quite. we have been heavily linked to both mcarthur and hooper yet grayson came out today on the leeds website stating that we are not trying to sign mcarthur. if we are not trying to sign hooper then why not state it at the same time. we know hooper is going somewhere because he has been left out of scthorpes pre season friendlies. i might be adding 2 and 2 togeather and getting 5 but i thought i would share my theory! garyd MOT

You might have a point here a few papers have claimed Leeds have tabled a 1.5million bid and nothing got said, the papers state we bid 750k for Mcarthur and we say its not true, hope it has legs but the pessimists among us might say Grayson hasn't been asked the question to deny it, i think he was being interviewed about the slovakia tour and the journalist through it in so he commented, your best guide line is the Yorkshire Evening Post because they talk to Leeds all the time and as far as i know didn't run the Mcarthur story but have claimed a few times Hooper is a target, having said that nothing is said til the deal is done so speculate we shall!

 

15 Jul 2010 21:15:28
To the joker who said an announcement would take place at 2pm about LFC being sold to a certain saudi royal.i appreciate that this is a rumour site but..what a load of garbage, nothing will hapen for at least 34 weeks yet(and that's optimistic!!)

What next will they be meting that same saudi royal at the friendly with alhilal on saturday..just thought i'd get in there first before some halfbaked rumour pops up!!

RED LEE {editor's note – that idea has already been put forward mate. I will be glad when the takeover is done and dusted, I am so bored of hearing about Sheikhs buying the club etc.}

Heard a massive thing today place i work we develop peoples pictures prints and a photographer who works close with liverpool echo an post said liverpool will announce a player on tuesday heard it maybe joe cole any info on this editor plz {editor's note – is it definitely a signing? Only the only things I have heard have been outgoings so I don't know anything about this if it is a signing. Whoever it is would have to be in for a medical over the next few days though so I should fingers crossed get some idea then. Unless it is a Spanish player? While the medical team are out in Spain checking out Torres they could do a medical away from prying eyes.}

Anyway for more interesting stuff!
Heard a belting rumour today about Leeds! Heard they are looking to bring Harry Kewell back to Elland road in a player / coach capacity!

Wish people would stop with these rumours about rangers going to buy untried and unheard of foreigners. This spanish boy who was mentioned is a non starter. Watty will only sign up and coming spl players with a sell on value from now on to help with the clubs finances in the long run.

if this is roughly tje team for next season im not to worried about who celtic sign. I think this is a steady solid and hardworking team. We might have been in need of a creative player in the middle but thomson leaving and eagles mabye coming in has freed up davis to dictate games and mabye sxore a few himself playing in his actual position. Still think we need a striker though. Id like nugent or goodwillie personally but i think we will be priced out moves for them.

Scottish Football News

From a good Journalist Friend who works down south "Expect Celtic's interest in David james to ramp up when they return from America".

Initial contact has aparently got the big keeper excited, he is looking for a two year deal and a new challenge! He is debating the move with his family.

Other news from close quarters within the Scottish Game:

Hibs: Alan Gow deal will happen if Yogi can move one or two players on.

Rangers: Bullard a no go. He is great friend with McCulloch but the deal won't happen.

Airdrie Utd: Missed out on Scott Chaplain who is returning to Dumbarton.

This might be just wishfull thinking but i am starting to believe that we (leeds) might be trying to sign hooper on the quite. we have been heavily linked to both mcarthur and hooper yet grayson came out today on the leeds website stating that we are not trying to sign mcarthur. if we are not trying to sign hooper then why not state it at the same time. we know hooper is going somewhere because he has been left out of scthorpes pre season friendlies. i might be adding 2 and 2 togeather and getting 5 but i thought i would share my theory! garyd MOT

Hey editor, this is getting run by Kraptalk, what do you think?

Liverpool's Christian Purslow has been cornered by his Real Madrid counterpart over the valuation of skipper Steven Gerrard.

The Liverpool midfielder's agent has told the Spanish giants that Gerrard wants a move to Madrid after personal terms were agreed 2 months ago.

Gerrard was given assurances by Reds Managing Director Christian Purslow that his exit would be approved "without problems" providing he publicly backed the appointment of new boss Roy Hodgson which he did.

Purslow was desperate to hire Hodgson knowing that he would be unable to prevent the sale of key players as he would have to come in under the terms made clear to him before taking the job.

Initially we had hoped that former boss Rafa Benitez was going to be axed to make way for new owners, especially as Sheikh Khalifa was linked with us at the same time, but that wasn't the case. Instead he was shown the door because he would never have stood by and watched Purslow sell players and reduce the wage bill to the extent that he is planning. Neither would Kenny Dalglish which is why he was ignored for the Liverpool job and why he has currently distanced himself from the current regime by taking unscheduled leave.

Our source at the Bernabeu tells us that they are not in for Ashley Cole as widely reported by the British media but that they are in for Gerrard and remain very confident of signing him despite the huge difference in valuations.

The media want us to believe that Gerrard is too old for Real Madrid yet the Spanish giants would shell out even more money for Cole who is just 7 months younger than the Liverpool skipper? It's all spin fed by agents and it should be ignored.

As revealed by KOPTALK last year, Gerrard's agent was informed by Christian Purslow that his client was free to leave Liverpool this summer if he wanted to. The thinking there was obviously the player's age and that time was running out to cash in.

Real Madrid have since made an offer for the Liverpool skipper and as we predicted at the time of our article last year, it was much lower than you'd expect (not much over £15m). That was rejected by Liverpool and a new offer has followed which is definitely no higher than £20m as things currently stand.

It was reported earlier in the week that Real had cooled their interest in the skipper but this is not true.

Real's transfer consultant Ernesto Bronzetti went on record saying that Liverpool had demanded £58.6m for Gerrard but that it was unacceptable because of the player's age.

Bronzetti said: "The president does not agree with Gerrard because he is 30 and Perez doesn't want to know. Plus Liverpool asked for 70m (£58.6m)."

This was of course more spin and poker playing by the Spanish outfit who are extremely clever at times like this. Today they've been linked with German World Cup star Sami Khedira as an alternative to Gerrard and that's what they want Gerrard and Purslow to hear.

The truth of the matter is that Real are so confident of landing Gerrard that they're not moving on their current offer.

Only the transfer fee and a medical stands in the way of a deal happening. But with Liverpool demanding such a high price, Gerrard has been left in a difficult situation.

If Purslow makes a uturn on his deal with Gerrard the skipper could be forced into handing a transfer request which is the last thing he wants to do and we simply can't see that happening.

Our source in Madrid said: "Liverpool (Purslow) told Steven that he could leave without problems if he said nice things about Roy Hodgson.

"Real Madrid are aware of that arrangement and know that Christian Purslow cannot now go back. This is why the offer will not be increased. If he does go back, then all sorts of damaging things could be leaked to the press."

Another source told us: "Steve will be texting Purslow furiously when he sees the prices supposedly being asked for him in the papers while Real Madrid will be in his ear winding him up about how difficult and unrealistic Purslow is being.

"Now it's just about Real Madrid ing Purslow in the ass on the price and they can because Purslow tried to play poker with the masters and is now fed."

The only thing that we can see preventing a deal would be the fee but our source in Madrid says nothing will prevent this deal from going through. They insist that Purslow is cornered because he cannot go back on his deal with Gerrard.

If Gerrard leaves, and we firmly believe that he will, he will do so with our blessing. We don't blame him. He's given his career to Liverpool and he's been lied to time and time again.

The best Purslow can hope for is £20m and maybe a player. He's certainly not going to get anything near £60m and at some point he's going to have to explain to Gerrard why things aren't progressing as promised.



Purslow is very much out of his depth at Anfield. He isn't a football CEO, neither was Rick Parry. Jose Angel Sanchez, Real Madrid's exuberant director of marketing, would have been Liverpool FC's CEO had L4 taken control of the club. The way he works is detailed in the following book which is well worth a read. It will really help you understand how Sanchez is a master of football transfers etc. {editor's note – I am sorry but I can't take any of this seriously. He even mentions Sheikh Khalifa being linked with the club, but the only person that linked Khalifa with Liverpool was him! It is just another scam to get people to subscribe to his site and to back up his mates attempt to put together a consortium to take over the club (it is his mate who is the man behind L4). There seems to be a real agenda against Purslow at the moment, and everything is getting blamed on him. If (and I reiterate if because it is not 100% either way still) Gerrard leaves it will be because he WANTS to leave, not because the club are pushing him out of the door. Though in my personal opinion Gerrard should have been sold years ago, he thinks he is bigger than the club. Great player that he is, he is not a great team player, he takes over and shines on the biggest stage but the best players make their team mates shine too. That is why Xavi is the best midfielder in the world bar none and not Gerrard.}

Arsenal will sign ozil in january because his price is too high this is how we signed Arshavin. Ozil has already said he is staying with werder bremen but only has a year left on his contract so wenger will sign him for a reduced price in january which will be about 15m.

ARSENAL WAS ABLE TO SIGN ARSHAVIN BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WANTED HIM, EVEN THEN THEY PAID TOP DOLLAR FOR HIM, 15m FOR A 27 YEAR OLD WINGER IS NOT CHEAP, ITS DAYLIGHT ROBBERY!

THERE WILL BE A QUEUE OF PEOPLE INTERESTED IN OZIL, BARCELONA, REAL MADRID, CHELSEA AND UNITED ARE ALL INTERESTED IN HIM, HE HAS ALREADY COME OUT AND SAID THAT HE IS STAYING AT BREMEN ALTHOUGH WHEN HE LEAVES HE WOULD LOVE TO PLAY FOR EITHER CHELSEA, UNITED OR PLAY IN THE LA LIGA, SO I THINK ARSENAL'S CHANCES ARE VERY SLIM TO NONE!

RANGERS NEWS

Qoute from Wiki

"On the 15th July 2010, It was confirmed that Jimmy Bullard would be seeking loan/permanent move to SPL Champions Rangers to be alongside Lee Mcculloch (Rangers player) who he worked beside at Wigan Athletic FC, He is apparently attracted to the Champions League football and the large fan base which Rangers hold. The deal is currently being concluded over the phone due to high interest in the midfielder, Jimmy Bullard is preparing for his second trip up to Glasgow in 3 weeks, to get a tour round Ibrox and Murray park (Rangers stadium & training facility's). The deal is hoping to be complete before Rangers pre season preparations to Australia".

What you think ed? Likely to happen?

The EK bear {editor's note I really don't know mate, I think he would be a brave man to choose to move to Rangers after the way he messed around Celtic. But one thing is for sure, if he does join Rangers now, he will certainly have the fans on his side.}

Come on i can't belive you are acually thinking this will come off he not going to Celtic because he can't get his wages increased to 75k that be Celtic paying the 30k the agree on and hull pay him his full wage so you are telling me Rangers Will fork out 30 k Think back to not being able to put a package together to keep boyd a 30k a week player would criple Rangers Finaces and hence reason hull trying to offload 45k a week as they are struggling to pay it so this is a non starter unless Bullard lowers his wage Demands

Over And Out

Does anyone else hope Joe Cole ends up without a top club to sign him? It seems most fans of Arsenal/Liverpool/Spurs only want him singed for their side to rub opposing fans noses in the fact that he chose them. It'll also be nice to prove that all those spouting rubbish about him already having signed for X/Y, but was only waiting until England were out of the WC to announce it, "100% FACT" were deluded fools. Whateve happened to the lad who claimed Arry, azza, thud etc had convinced him to join Spurs and that it was all signed and sealed weeks ago? I guess he's in the same category as the "fact" that Liverpool have already been taken over

im here, cole has signed and their are some reports that he will be unvailed tomorrow for the new kit launch but im unsure about that, the leek came from paul smith who works for spurs odyssey, he told us about bentley even when the puddlers were claiming they had signed him, he also told us about crouch, pava and kranjcar as for the liverpool take over.who cares

To the fool saying blackpool to sign lee grant for £1 million.alan irvine has openly said grant is still out injured due to a shoulder operation hence he isn't able to play any pre season so far or train and to be honest theres more chance he would go to burnley to link back up with laws..bad show for us owls if he was to go..what say you ed?? {editor's note – you will miss him badly, but there has been a bit of talk about how he is not keen on playing at League 1 level and wants to test himself at a higher level. It would be a great opportunity for him to show how good a keeper he is – whoever Blackpool have in goal will certainly have to stop a fair few shots next season!}

According to Frank Leboeuf (quote from ESPN Press Pass), the future of Michael Essien's playing career is very much in doubt. Apparently Chelsea are staying quiet but his injuries are worse than is being made clear to the fans and it is likely that he may not play again. I'm not a chelsea fan but none the less sincerly hope this isn't the case, wish him a recovery and hope to see a fantastic player like Essien playing soon. however the source seems to be pretty solid.

Mate this is complete rubbish. Wilkins has said both mikel and essien are now back in training and will be ready for the start of the season don't believe me, go to the chelsea official website

Is that including the Berba / Lahm p/ex .

Balotelli 30 mill
Defour 1822 mill

Lahm 10 mill + berba

Thats a net spend of 62 Million (Or there abouts) we don't have that kind of Money.

I agree that Hernandez looked class but he will need a year to adjust to life in Europe.

Defour would be a good buy(But may impeed Pogba's progress into the first team), i am not too keen on Balotelli but I would love this to happen

Vidic (If he wants out, Fck'em) to Madrid Swap for Bemzema

Buy Subotic / Chiellini 1020 million

Buy Sneijder / VDV / Oezil / Jovetic 1530 Mill

Just my opinion

I reckon they would all do well with United

Wouldn't break the bank either

Gaz WOW FIRST OF ALL DEFOUR WAS ONLY WORTH 1215M BEFORE HIS INJURY, HE COULD BE PICKED UP FOR AS LITTLE AS 10M NOW, NOT THE SILLY FEE YOU ARE CLAIMING! LAHM IS NOT WORTH 25M, HE IS WORTH 15M TOPS, SO IF A SWAP WAS GOING TO HAPPEN IT WOULD BE A STRAIGHT SWAP. UNITED DO NOT NEED HIM ANYWAY, RAFAEL WILL BE WORLD CLASS.

ALTHOUGH PEOPLE ARE GETTING SILLY, BERBATOV IS A QUALITY PLAYER, 12 GOALS AND AS MANY ASSISTS IS NOT BAD AT ALL, HE IS NO LONE STRIKER SO I CANT BELIEVE PEOPLE WERE SHOCKED WHEN HE COULDN'T BREAK DOWN DEFENSES ON HIS OWN. HE IS A SECOND STRIKER, A PLAY MAKER!

UNITED WILL SIGN EITHER DEFOUR (12M), NINIS (10M) OR HENRIQUE (15M)

NO ONE ELSE WILL BE BROUGHT IN UNLESS PLAYERS LEAVE.




I THINK YOU GOT IT WRONG MATE.. i SAID THE BERBA SWAP WAS A NO GOER AND I DIDN'T SLATE HIM.. IN THE EARLIER POST I MADE.

I THINK DEFOUR WILL GO FOR MORE THAN 10 12 MILLION, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF CLUBS MONITORING HIS SITUATION.

Also I reckon Fergie will wait until January to make a bid for him, or unless another club makes a bid we will match it.

I can see a bid for a well known attacking midfielder being accepted very soon (No I am not saying I have inside info, just my thoughts).

I can also see Carrick being surplus to requirements to make room for this player.

A players value also depends on what the holders of his contract value him at, not newspaper speculation. So by reckoning if a player like Tosic who made a handful of apps for united goes for 67 mill you reckon Defour is worth 10 mill, I am just being realistic.

Bottom line matey is noone knows. It is being played extremly tight. I know for a fact that virtually everyone at Anfield players, middle management, staff etc has not got a clue other than what Broughton said they other day. I wouldn't believe any rumour concerning the sale unless it appears AFTER the end of this month. What's doing the rounds now is baseless gossip.

Likewise transfers. Nobody knows what Hodgson is going to do or who he is going to buy or sell bar him, Purslow, Dalglish and maybe some of the senior players a little. There are far to many variables. For instance Torres. If he goes we need a class striker, if he stays we have him supported by Pacheco, Dalle Valli and Kuyt.

Once Hodgson has had his training camp and has assessed what he's got (or hasn't got) then you will see moves in the transfer market. We have 15M plus sales and we also have to operate within the 'Homegrown' rules. We have also got to make more use of reserve/academy players so just because big players may leave irt does not mean they will be replaced. A big clue as to how he may think will be the formations he tries out in the next two weeks.

I have two well placed sources. One knows nothing, the other told me what I posted three weeks ago about McGeady going to Villa to replace Milner who is Manchester bound. He only knew that because McGeady had sacked his agent and was now being handled by the same agent as Carragher in preperation for his move south. Comes to something when your source knows more about another club than his own! But that's how tight the hierarchy are keeping things.

Arsenal
I'm a long time reader, first time post. First of all good work Ed! With regards to the gunners summer transfers I don't have any inside info with agents, the club and all them lies but maybe some common sense. It's pretty clear that a lot of these big name signings aren't really going to happen as much as I would love to see the likes of Ozil, Balotelli, Hazard etc. I hear the same thing most summers and it just doesn't materialise. In my opinion heading out the emirates could be like likes of:

Eduardo loved by the majority of the arsenal faithful but never recovered from that injury. Rosicky technically gifted but much of the same with Eduardo, shame. Almunia for obvious reasons the less said the
better. Fabregas no one really knows? Clichy a surprise, I hope not but if a big offer came in and with Gibbs in the wings. Also you never know that could be what laurent koscielny was really bought for like Sagna no one saw that one coming considering all the left footed defenders we have.
This is just my opinion but at the same time I really can't see us shifting five more players in this window.
As for the in's its anyone's guess I'm hoping for strong defensive cover maybe a couple of the following
Mark Schwarzer or
Samir Handanovic Serdar Tasci or CristianZapata Joe Cole (love to see it happen but unlikely maybe off to spurs) Gai Assulin (free as Cole and a good prospect) Conner Wickham (a new one to me but according to several reports the manger is 'desperate' to land him ?)
As I said these are just my opinions and I could well be off the mark. I hope this is posted so I could hear some feedback what do you think Ed? P.s Any Arsenal rumours you got? Cheers mate.
Kaz_88 {editor's note – only thing I have heard on Arsenal recently was that Traore was the left back on the way out rather than Clichy or Gibbs.}

"Anybody who thinks that Ashley Cole will be leaving Chelsea is absolutely deluded. Do you really think after his heavily criticised outburst about how he loves Chelsea more than England, that he'd simply swan off to Real Madrid 2 months later?

\\ Realistic Red //" really mate you would trust cashleys word ? this is the man who pretty much renegaded on a new contract with arsenal over a few grand and who promised to to be loyal to cheryl cole. i think even the most loyal chelsea fan would carry him to madrid should they find a good replacement and madrid did pay 30m. if they gave van aanholt a chance to develop the lad would be hollands 1st choice lb in a couple of years hes that good.

Ballack, Joe Cole, Belleti all released, Deco on his way along with Carvalho at 6M with Inter, Athletico Madrid and Porto all intrested.
Now Scott Sinclair and Tony Di Santo are surplus to requirements and being touted around..with Wigan considering a 1.5M for Sinclair and Bolton weighing up a 4.5M for Di Santo.
Abramovich is still considering whether its worth keeping U21 Mancienne or loaning him out yet again or taking the 5M on the table from Wolves.
But Ancelotti wants his squad all in place by the 7th August including his young players from the Academy.
17M Sammy Khedira looks first in, followed by 22M Bruno Alves after the Carvalho transfer is sorted. Then all out pursuit of Torres.but if that fails, Chelsea will turn to 30M Aguero.

To Liverpool Fans, RH stating hes finding it hard to keep hold of players doesn't include Torres and Gerrard it refers to Lucas and the baby Masch.
This means RH is in need of a defensive midfielder and is keen on porto's fernando reges. Talented young player and shouldnt break the bank to sign especially with the 2025 mill estimated in a sale of maschto inter.
Like previous seasons liverpool are in need of a winger and its not going to be Joe Cole as he doesn't want to leave london for family reasons.
RH will have a shortist of options but is rumoured to be keen on signing Rafa's target Boltons ChungYong Lee.

Also about the sale of the club no one knows whats happening behind the scenes. Rumours coming out that the club will be sold within the week etc are false we won't know anything until the board release it to the press.

 

15 Jul 2010 16:31:24
According to Frank Leboeuf (quote from ESPN Press Pass), the future of Michael Essien's playing career is very much in doubt. Apparently Chelsea are staying quiet but his injuries are worse than is being made clear to the fans and it is likely that he may not play again. I'm not a chelsea fan but none the less sincerly hope this isn't the case, wish him a recovery and hope to see a fantastic player like Essien playing soon.. however the source seems to be pretty solid.

What? Have you seen this guy play. Ive been following him for years. His potential is phenomenal and if Fergie can use his proven method of getting the best from players, not not only are we seeing the potential new Ronaldo but the long anticipated new Cantona. The guy has it all.

I assume your probably an Everton fan who thought you had a chance of signing him. that was never going to happen you muppet.

Right listen up everton fans. Moyes is convinced he has a solid team but would like to add additional cover incase everton see another injury hit season. This means no major players are going to be bought but instead he is looking for proven older squad players.

Rumour has it he is keen for a move for Sol Campbell but might have to pull out due to the fact that can't match wages offered to him by other clubs.

You heard it hear first but there also might be a surprise move for Danny Murphy but without the guarantee of first team football it is likely the 33 year old with be coming back to merseyside

Onto players leaving theres been alot of speculation about Steven Pienarr but i'm convinced he will stay at Everton unless Liverpool make a large bid but due to there finanacial situation that doesn't seem likely.

News from Hull this morning is that Jimmy Bullard has agreed to go to Rangers which I said weeks ago were his preferred option. Yorkie LAD {editor's note fair play you did say that, so if it is correct well done mate.}

Actually, the news in Hull is that this story is complete and utter garbage. Jimmy has no intention of going anywhere and there's no way Rangers would pay the money required. Anyone who thinks Hull would pay £45k a week for their player to play for another team is completely barking.

Mexican man on mission Efrain Juarez wants to prove he can crack it on the European stage with Celtic after failing to cut it at Barcelona.

The Mexican international is set to join up with his new Hoops teammates in Toronto tomorrow. And manager Neil Lennon could pitch him in to make his debut in a glamour friendly against Manchester United the same night.

Celtic have shelled out over £3million to land the 22yearold midfielder from Pumas UNAM. And they are landing a player desperate to prove he can produce the goods outwith his homeland after a failed spell at the Spanish giants as a kid.

Juarez spent two years at the Nou Camp between 2006 and 2008, but failed to play a single topteam game.

And he feels he has a point to prove after agreeing to move to Scotland, subject to a work permit being granted.

He said: "I want to show I have the ability to triumph in Europe after my experiences in Barcelona when I was younger.

"My time at Barca and in Spain was not positive and I want to forget that episode in my career.

"I know I can demonstrate my talent at the highest level and Celtic will give me that opportunity.

"I have heard many excellent things about the club and although I do not know too much about Scottish football, the chance to play in the Champions League alone is enormous for me.

"It's an incredible dream, in fact, and one that I cherish.

"I promise to work very hard for Celtic and help them achieve the success they want."

RANGERS NEWS

Qoute from Wiki

"On the 15th July 2010, It was confirmed that Jimmy Bullard would be seeking loan/permanent move to SPL Champions Rangers to be alongside Lee Mcculloch (Rangers player) who he worked beside at Wigan Athletic FC, He is apparently attracted to the Champions League football and the large fan base which Rangers hold. The deal is currently being concluded over the phone due to high interest in the midfielder, Jimmy Bullard is preparing for his second trip up to Glasgow in 3 weeks, to get a tour round Ibrox and Murray park (Rangers stadium & training facility's). The deal is hoping to be complete before Rangers pre season preparations to Australia".

What you think ed? Likely to happen?

The EK bear {editor's note – I really don't know mate, I think he would be a brave man to choose to move to Rangers after the way he messed around Celtic. But one thing is for sure, if he does join Rangers now, he will certainly have the fans on his side.}

ED, ive have been told that joe cole WILL resign for chelsea due to 2 reasons, the 1st is his wife/gf is desperate to stay in london for career opportunites 2nd reason is the chelsea players have convinced j.cole to accept 100k a week 3 year deal and compromise to see if club would reoffer a contract(if they did they shoud say only for 75k a week to teach him a lesson) as the club is obviously very good and unlikely he will move somewhere that can automatically challenge for titles.is this true ed? would be a massive bit of news {editor's note – I haven't heard anything about that at all, I doubt Chelsea would offer him anywhere near 100k though.}

Is that including the Berba / Lahm p/ex .

Balotelli 30 mill
Defour 1822 mill

Lahm 10 mill + berba

Thats a net spend of 62 Million (Or there abouts) we don't have that kind of Money.

I agree that Hernandez looked class but he will need a year to adjust to life in Europe.

Defour would be a good buy(But may impeed Pogba's progress into the first team), i am not too keen on Balotelli but I would love this to happen

Vidic (If he wants out, Fck'em) to Madrid Swap for Bemzema

Buy Subotic / Chiellini 1020 million

Buy Sneijder / VDV / Oezil / Jovetic 1530 Mill

Just my opinion

I reckon they would all do well with United

Wouldn't break the bank either

Gaz WOW FIRST OF ALL DEFOUR WAS ONLY WORTH 1215M BEFORE HIS INJURY, HE COULD BE PICKED UP FOR AS LITTLE AS 10M NOW, NOT THE SILLY FEE YOU ARE CLAIMING! LAHM IS NOT WORTH 25M, HE IS WORTH 15M TOPS, SO IF A SWAP WAS GOING TO HAPPEN IT WOULD BE A STRAIGHT SWAP. UNITED DO NOT NEED HIM ANYWAY, RAFAEL WILL BE WORLD CLASS.

ALTHOUGH PEOPLE ARE GETTING SILLY, BERBATOV IS A QUALITY PLAYER, 12 GOALS AND AS MANY ASSISTS IS NOT BAD AT ALL, HE IS NO LONE STRIKER SO I CANT BELIEVE PEOPLE WERE SHOCKED WHEN HE COULDN'T BREAK DOWN DEFENSES ON HIS OWN. HE IS A SECOND STRIKER, A PLAY MAKER!

UNITED WILL SIGN EITHER DEFOUR (12M), NINIS (10M) OR HENRIQUE (15M)

NO ONE ELSE WILL BE BROUGHT IN UNLESS PLAYERS LEAVE.

Other than he believed the budget to be around £2.5m for transfer fees or signing on fee, so in his words I was not to expect a big signing. Is Wheater coming to the end of his contract or available on a free?}

To the guy

"no offence mate, but Mehmet is away over to Turkey, and Daly has just been handed the armband down at Tannadice don't see either arriving at Ibrox, wouldn't see either of being able to fill a 25+ goal void left by boyds departure, "

None taken

As many goals as Boyd scored, I don't think it would be hard for a similar type of player to score the number of goals he did. I liked the way big Mehmet and Daly gave defenders a hard time as well as a sht load of bruises. Didn't realise Mehmet was away, but i think Daly would chuck the armband for a go at the Champions.oh well suppose we'll have to put that £20M bid in for Luis Fabiano then

Thats been there for ages i.e. as soon as the revamp of the site happened. It's announcements like Away Ticket Sale news, Europa Tie news, Season Ticket Renewals etc.

I have little hope that something will happen over the next few days however would love to be wrong. Keeping current players is Woy's main priority expect that to happen before any signings. Also stop all this Joe Cole business please its beyond boring, the greedy little runt will end up at the club that's offers him the most money, simples !!

Rangers will sign two big names in Rino Gattuso (who has always said he will return to rangers one day), and Alan Smith who will be deployed wide left, Smith grew up a rangers fan because of his grandad who also supported rangers. Other signings will include : tonel 1.2 million, and possibly james mccarthur for cover now that thommo has left.

Any Chelsea rumours worth mentioning?

Article today about Lukaku from Anderlecht but don't expect to see him arrive until he's 18. Not sure if it's a buy and loan back or they'll wait.

Other than that I think there's truth to the rumours that the owner is looking to cut back on spending and bring youngsters through. Mikel and Essien will be like new signings.

LAZ {editor's note he will be brought in before he is 18 so that he can qualify for the home grown quota in the future, if he signs. He will probably just go out on loan for the season though.}





To Laz and Ed

Lukaku's dad has repeatedly said he will stay in Belgium irrelavant of who comes in for him so he can finish his schooling and make sure his qualificatins are in place before he flies the nest and heads for pastures new.


Good idea in my opinion. he will be 18 1/2 by then and it will be next summer when all his exams are done So it will be then at the earliest that hewill move. Im not saying a deal will not be done now but will be at least 12 months before he physically moves to another team.



Did you read what was said? About waiting until he's 18 an all, e.g. 'but don't expect to see him arrive until he's 18'. Then the editor added a good point about the benefits of signing him up before he's 18. Thanks for adding nothing.

The the guy who said

" EXPECT A STRIKER AND A MIDFIELDER OR DEFENDER TO COME IN BEFORE
THE 20TH JULY TOO (with what money)"

We have 5m to spend, so id imagine it'd be with that money. Only reason some players are up for sale is due to their contracts running out end of season. Out of those, expect miller, mcculloch, papac and poss webster to run theirs down. Anyone else, we don't need to sell unless we get a real good offer for them (wilson 2/3m, bougy 6m+, mcgregor 4m). I think the 2m we're gettin back for thommo when he has only a year left on his contract is good business. Never been the same since his last injury, and has no pace at all. Expect a bid for mcarthur, 1.2m. Eagles 1.5m. The rest of the budget will be spent on ano wide mid, and then it will depend on who leaves and what positions need filled.

R A N G E R S

Came on here a few weeks backing telling you about Jimmy Bullard being friends with Lee McCulloch and that he'd end up at Rangers and not Celtic. I was laughed at and told Rangers couldn't afford anyone of his quality. In the next few days this story will really develop, with Thomson almost left for England a replacement is needed. John Fleck was spoken about but, he performs better in a wider role. Edu and McCulloch are there but if Bougherra leaves then Lee McCulloch may be even more defensive. Jimmy Bullard will join on loan. Chris Eagles will sign next week and a striker also.

ARSENAL
VAN PERSIE is not leaving Arsenal, he has requested a change of number. Either to 9 or 10 depending on whether Eduardo leaves. As the numbers don't have to be forwarded to the FA yet, it will be known in due course.
JOE COLE will move to Arsenal, as & when the Fabregas deal is agreed, assuming Barca can agree a fee with Arsenal & stump up the funds.
SEBASTIEN FREY is on his way, just sorting out the terms & medical etc.
A further centre half will definitely be purchased .
There will be no other 1st team signings other than a keeper, a centre back & a replacement for Fab, if he goes. As Wenger will have sufficient cover in all positions.

Frey, Fabianski, Mannone
Sagna, Eboue
Clichy, Gibbs, Traore
Fabregas or J Cole, Abu Diaby, Ramsey (when fit)
Djourou & new centre back
Vermaelen, Koscielny
Walcott, Rosicky, Wilshere
Song, Denilsen, Eastmond
Arshavin, Nasri
Van Persie, Vela, Eduardo
Chamakh, Bendtner

Plus any additional young players promoted to the 1st team squad.

Will utd fans please stop giving other teams the pleasure of taking the rise out of us.
we are signing nobody of note as i have posted on here for the last 2 seasons.
people should realise how bad the situation is, im hanging on to my now part time job by the skin of my teeth, when season ticket cards are being used for the 3rd succesive season you know how bad things have got, people going on part time hours and even laid off.
the glazers are determined to get there millions every season and if that means taking the so called transfer budget that is what they are going to do.
22,000 season tickets sold, exec boxes and memberships at an all time low, no success will mean only two things, a dwindle in the crowds and the sale of established players.
don'y worry though the glazers will go when there is nothing left to sell, and id rather sit in a half empty stadium then one with thousands of spoilt so called reds.
only good newswatch the academy lads comming through..

Henri Lansbury could be returning on a sixmonth loan deal. He was due to join a premier league club but couldn't be guranteed a first 11 place by the teams interested which Wenger wanted.

Other players watford are interested in bringing in on loan are Ryan Donaldson (a striker currently at newcastle United) and Ryan McGivern (a defender currently at manchester city).

Joe Cole has reportedly rejected a contract offer worth £80,000aweek to join Liverpool.
The outofcontract former Chelsea player is said to have demanded the same terms as those commanded by Steven Gerrard, rumoured to be around £120,000aweek, "to consider" a move to Anfield.
On top of his excessive wage demands, Cole is also demanding a substantial signingon fee due to the fact that he's available on a Bosman.

Also any rumours regarding in's or out's at Millwall? {editor's note – I haven't heard anything regarding Millwall sorry.}

 

15 Jul 2010 13:41:50
Goodwillie is a good player but very similar to Miller and again vastly over priced, we need a big lad up front (rather than a big pussy like lafferty) We could easily afford Daly of Mehmet to tap in the goals we've lost through Boyd.

no offence mate, but Mehmet is away over to Turkey, and Daly has just been handed the armband down at Tannadice don't see either arriving at Ibrox, wouldn't see either of being able to fill a 25+ goal void left by boyds departure,

 

15 Jul 2010 13:41:56
"Chris Eagles deal to be finalised in the next few days regardless of whether Thomson's departure is complete, Rangers already have £5million to spend."

CAMBUSLANG TEDDY BEAR

The £5m isn't really £5m for transfer fees, This is money that will probably go towards wages over 2, 3, and 4year contracts for players brought in, so realistically Eagles who will probably be on the top £18k per week, (Plus National insurance which the club pay making it approx £20K) for a 3 year contract lets say, will earn around £2.8Mplus the Transfer Fee (Rumoursed to be around £1.3M) leaves Rangers with £0.8M of that kitty

(Read the Herald 'Hidden Costs' article today, this is how i translate it)

Probably why the Gers have allowed Thomson to go, as we have good backup in the middle of the park, and his sale and free'd up wages will cover the Eagles purchase, leaving the remaining (Aledged) £5m to cover two more buys.

PS, I'm Also a Cambuslang bear myself ;)

Jimmy Bullard, in talks with Glasgow Rangers.

Just general chit chat i take it?, Celtic laughed at his wage demands, Rangers would burst in to tears, the guys after £30,000 on top of his current £45,000 at Hull, Rangers can't currently afford that sort of cash.

Eagles is 90% to sign unless someone if the mould of Bolton comes in yet even if they do, I still see the CL tempting him to come to Rangers.

the starting 11, will be relativley same, with the departure of Thompson looking set IF a payout can be sorted albeit Rangers may see it cheaper holding on to the boy.

Celtic still expecting one or two new arrivals, personally i see the arrival of Keane or Bellamy as just sheer fantasy, albeit Bellamy is quite likely to be affordable, what i've heard and Ed has already pointed out is that City may be willing to pay a small percentage of his wages to offload him, plays for the shirt exactly what Lenny is looking for, so is possible but despite him saying he won't be playing for another English club, i can still see him tempted if a team like everton or spurs come in.

New Southend United management duo, Paul Sturrock and Tommy Widdrington, are to seek urgent talks with Chairman, Ron Martin, on his return from his Cypriot holiday to seek immediate, unequivocal and tangible evidential assurances that the finances at the football club are such that they will enable them to undertake their duties. If these assurances are not provided they will resign (neither have yet seen, let alone sign a contract).

The club remains under a transfer embargo untiol 2 August at the earliest. This, seemingly, will not guarantee that the club will have enough players (only 8 currently on the books more of this later) to undertake its fixtures. The Football League is monitoring this situation closely, and is likely to seek similar assurances as those sought my Messrs. Sturrck and Widdrington. League expulsion is a very real spectre.

Now, onto the eight remaining players under contract. Two others have signed frankly worthless, at present, precontract agreements. At least five of the eight have given notice of their intention to resign from the club (as was the case with four others who have now moved on after having their contracts cancelled due to nonpayment of wages). Teh five are Franck Moussa (tracked by Hull City, Bradford City, Walsall and Derby County); Francis Laurent (tracked by Brentford and Wycombe Wanderers); JeanFrancois Christophe (seeking a return to France); Matt Paterson (tracked by Charlton Athletic); and Johnny Herd (tracked by Rushden and Diamonds and Cambridge United).

Finally, many supporters are holding onto teh hope that supermarket giant Sainsbury's will not wish to be associated with closing down a football club. This is harsh business and five minutes of negative publicity is a price worth paying for one of the largest supermarkets in Europe.

To the guy who asked about Josh Payne who is on trial at Donny.

A hard tackling mid field player. SOD probably sees him as DM cover although Donny midfield looks pretty strong at present. he didn't get much chance at West Ham though he was captain of their youth team which says something about his leadership qualities HumberJAG

Any Chelsea rumours worth mentioning?

Article today about Lukaku from Anderlecht but don't expect to see him arrive until he's 18. Not sure if it's a buy and loan back or they'll wait.

Other than that I think there's truth to the rumours that the owner is looking to cut back on spending and bring youngsters through. Mikel and Essien will be like new signings.

LAZ {editor's note he will be brought in before he is 18 so that he can qualify for the home grown quota in the future, if he signs. He will probably just go out on loan for the season though.}





To Laz and Ed

Lukaku's dad has repeatedly said he will stay in Belgium irrelavant of who comes in for him so he can finish his schooling and make sure his qualificatins are in place before he flies the nest and heads for pastures new.


Good idea in my opinion. he will be 18 1/2 by then and it will be next summer when all his exams are done So it will be then at the earliest that hewill move. Im not saying a deal will not be done now but will be at least 12 months before he physically moves to another team.



Did you read what was said? About waiting until he's 18 an all, e.g. 'but don't expect to see him arrive until he's 18'. Then the editor added a good point about the benefits of signing him up before he's 18. Thanks for adding nothing.

The players with Manchester United in North America all look set to stay. Which means no Berbatov leaving (which personally, I'm delighted about, because no matter what anybody says, Berbatov is a true class act), or Wes Brown, or Obertan (although I would have loved to see him go to a decent Premier League club on loan, to get some experience), or even Danny Welbeck. I believe that United's next and last signing of this summer would be Sotiris Ninis. However, with Vidic's situation in the balance, a centreback like Gary Cahill could be signed to replace him. Considering the defensive disaster of last season, although unlikely, don't rule out a move for Phillipe Lahm.

Schwarzer, yes AW doesn't want to pay 4 mil but may give Fulham a couple of kids on loan
Another CB, around the 10 mil mark to partner TV. Mertesacker or Subotic favourites, Cahill or Richards also.
AW doesn't want J.Cole (why would he?!?)
He does however want Ryan Babel, and if he can get him at a decent price he will do, as Eduardo looks likely to go.

=====================================

This is based on the fact of.. ?
Source is from.. ?

Too often there are rumours flying around. you se it posted here for each and every club. Fools literally everywhere posting "rumour" after "rumour" and people jump on believing or disbelieving all the time.
As it is known at Leeds United, they DO NOT talk about who they are going for, who they're signing. So, please. leave out this so called rumours that are baseless of fact!

The Lukaku discussion at 15 Jul 2010 12:30:06:

LAZ had said: "Article today about Lukaku from Anderlecht but don't expect to see him arrive until he's 18. Not sure if it's a buy and loan back or they'll wait."

"Ed. had replied: "he will be brought in before he is 18 so that he can qualify for the home grown quota in the future, if he signs. He will probably just go out on loan for the season though."

Unsigned clarified "Lukaku's dad has repeatedly said he will stay in Belgium irrelavant of who comes in for him so he can finish his schooling and make sure his qualificatins are in place before he flies the nest and heads for pastures new."

My understanding of an offer put forward by Chelsea was for a five year contract with (a) the first year continuing at Anderlecht, and (b) a decision taken at the end of the first year as to where the player would be during year two. In the interim, as time allowed he would travel to England to train with the first team squad.

I AM JUST PUTTING A COMMENT ON THIS ARGUEMENT DAVID SILVA IS ONE OF EUROPES MOST WANTED PLAYERS (REAL MADRID NEARLY SIGNED HIM LAST SEASON ALONG WITH DAVID VILLA). I WATCH ALOT OF SPANISH FOOTY AND FOR VALENCIA AND IF IT WASNT FOR HIM DAVID VILLA WOULD NOT HAVE SCORED THE GOALS HE DID DAVID SILVA HAS EXCELLENT SKILL, ELECTRIC PACE, FANTASTIC BALL CONTROL, AND IS A GREAT READER OF THE GAME , FOR THE £26MILLION THE PAID THEY ARE GETTING AN ABSOLUTE BARGAIN THEY TALK ABOUT RIBERY £50MILLION DAIVD SILVA IS A FAR BETTER PLAYER THAN HIM .

Maicons not leaving as everyone includind Madrid have baulked at te 29m asking fee.

Balotelli is in Manchester to discuss a deal with Both clubs. There is no deal between any of the clubs yet but this is to see whether he fancies a move and to which team before they waste time getting getting into a bidding war.

Rafa has said he wants to speak to him first which by what i understand hasnt happened yet and knowing his hatred towards fergie will prob try and tempt him into either staying or go to City.

How about you go peddle your filthy mouth somewhere else. United claimed Ronaldo was not leaving but he did. Arsenal claim fabregas will not leave but he will if not this summer, next. Liverpool claim torres isn't leaving but he no doubt will within a year, get your head out of your backside..clubs claim people arent for sale to make them sound more valuable to the club than they are and drive their prices up.

Any Chelsea rumours worth mentioning?

Article today about Lukaku from Anderlecht but don't expect to see him arrive until he's 18. Not sure if it's a buy and loan back or they'll wait.

Other than that I think there's truth to the rumours that the owner is looking to cut back on spending and bring youngsters through. Mikel and Essien will be like new signings.

LAZ {editor's note he will be brought in before he is 18 so that he can qualify for the home grown quota in the future, if he signs. He will probably just go out on loan for the season though.}





To Laz and Ed

Lukaku's dad has repeatedly said he will stay in Belgium irrelavant of who comes in for him so he can finish his schooling and make sure his qualificatins are in place before he flies the nest and heads for pastures new.


Good idea in my opinion. he will be 18 1/2 by then and it will be next summer when all his exams are done So it will be then at the earliest that hewill move. Im not saying a deal will not be done now but will be at least 12 months before he physically moves to another team.

 

15 Jul 2010 12:33:39
Fulham are asking £4m for Mark Schwarzer Wenger will not pay that amount for a 37yr old he wanted only as a stop gap (he sees Mannone and Szeczny as the long term). He is now likely to play a waiting game in the hope of landing another long term target Shay Given. Joe Hart will not be loaned out again and looks likely to become City's 1st choice keeper. This could force Given out and Wenger would be keen to do business if the price was right. At 34, AW knows that Given could still give him at least 2 seasons and improve the already admirable skills of Szeczny and Mannone.

PS) Thierry Henry signed for NY Red Bulls yesterday. What happened to all those 'in the know' LFC fans claiming the player was a 'done deal' to Anfield this summer? Not saying much now are you? It was 100% assured that when Henry left AFC, he would never return to the Premier for any other team. His legs may have gone, but his heart will always be with Arsenal!

FIRST OF ALL, WENGER HAS ALREADY HAD A BID OF 3.5M TURNED DOWN FOR SCHWARZER SO I'M SURE 500K WONT HINDER THE DEAL. ALSO HENRY IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE PREMIERSHIP, HE HAS NOT BEEN FOR A WHILE NOW.

Ed put me out of my misery!
Have you heard any 'concrete' names being linked to Liverpool?
Every day the wonderful tabloid press seem to link us with at least 4 new players if not more.
Is Roy doing nothing until after the training camp?
Or have you heard about any interest from him to any players? {editor's note – there have been a few feelers out, but mostly it is waiting on sales and for Hodgson to have some time to look over the current squad.}

 

15 Jul 2010 12:10:11
For the blues fans.

I have got this from a 110% reliable source, a brother of one of the chelsea players (great Guy), i do a lot of business with him. He has told me that Ashley Cole is done at chelsea, he's a gonna and that Kaka is coming over to chelsea, its all been agreed, that's is if morinho can get a player (not sure who) that he is after.

theres word that Torres is wanting to go to chelsea, the only thing that is stopping him is the asking price, chelsea are willing to pay no more than 35mil, liverpool are asking a max of 50 mil. this season its not going to happen. Chelsea are also going to sign centre back, bruno or a argentine player from RM, eziqueliz or something.

Chelsea have also bought a couple of young players. Matic, struridge, kakuta all going to have first team experience.

Im not an arsenal fan so don't quote me on this but i've heard that van persie's number next year will be number 10. So no he won't be leaving.

Van Persie is changing his squad number, im not an Arsenal fan so im not sure what his number is just now but i think he's moving from 11 to 10, i read about it during the world cup.

 

15 Jul 2010 12:20:21
Hi guys, I am going to start leaving my thoughts here.. I don't know anybody, but I am hoping to speak sense. I am a Newcastle fan btw.

First to Arsenal.. Don't expect AW to sign a Joe Hart, Manuel Neuer or any other keeper under the age of 28. AW wants a veteran keeper who can give him 23 top class years before moving on to Wojciech Szczęsny or Vito Mannone who he believes will be the next goalkeeper. Mark Schwarzer was an early favourite, however their is a stumbling block, 4 million stumbling block in fact, Schwarzer wants the move however.

Now to the Joe Cole saga, everybody seems certain they will be going to there club, wether it be Arsenal, West Ham, Spurs or Liverpool. Liverpool can be ruled out, Cole wants London. West Ham, I don't think so, remember you were in a relegation dog fight. Arsenal, no, AW is happy with his midfield, that leaves Tottenham. Redknapp wants him, Cole loves Redknapp, if the wages are right, expect Cole to be playing at White Hart Lane. Again as mentioned, I know nobody, just speaking what i feel.

Ed, I am very keen on knowing who that CB is who is joining the Toon, 2.5 million does give me the hint that it could be Cho YongHyung we have been linked to him previously and his contract does run out in December this season i think, therefore could get him for the 2.5 million. Thoughts ed?

Thankyou

B_Mac I don't know people, only common sense {editor's note – I really don't have any names on the centre back, I haven't had a chance to even look round to see if I can find any likely names.}

 

15 Jul 2010 11:55:05
To Ed Any truth in the rumours that Arsenal will be signing Subotic form Dortmund? Hearing people say 'he was at the ground' etc.. any truth? Also seems Schwarzer deal me not be happening, any ideas who Wenger is looking at for GK? Cheers {editor's note – I don't believe that Subotic has been to the ground yet, an enquiry was made about him before the move for Koscielny. I don't believe that it was followed up. Wenger has been searching hard for a different keeper option, Frey looks to be the most likely one though.}

 

15 Jul 2010 11:56:26
Hi editorhave you got any burnley news, apparently the fraser forster and chris eagles deals are close. {editor's note – I have nothing new to add to that sorry mate.}

"Sky sports just announced that inter milan have said that maicon will NOT be joining real madrid and balottelli will NOT be leaving either so both sets of mancs can peddle their bullst elsewhere"

Of course a team like Inter is going to try and keep hold of their best players. At the end of the day Balotelli wants to leave, he's hated by the fans and endures racist chants week in week out, often at stadiums where Inter are not even playing at!! He wants a move away from Italy, and the two Manchester clubs appear to be the interested parties. What do you expect Massimo Morrati to say? By saying that Balotelli is "priceless" is an attempt to increase the transfer fee gained from the sale of the player. Its a PR game, it happens all the time. I fully expect him to move this summer.

Ed, at the press conference unveiling Roy Hodgson the Chairman clearly mentioned that we are in an auction process and that bids were due in by the middle of July. Seeing as his professional integrity is at stake, I have no reason to believe that he would lie about this. This week (today and tomorrow to be more precise) is clearly the middle of July and so it is not unreasonable to assume based on the Chairman's comments that non binding bids must be in by no later than tomorrow. This may well be the reason why the date of 15th July has been bandied about (the deadline day for non binding bids to be received will have been clearly set out in the information memorandum sent to parties expressing an interest). Any supposed leaks up to this point as to bidders is likely to be complete ball sheet based on a rehash of previously interested parties. From now on however the process gets very interesting. The key to holding on to Torres is that he be satisfied that the club will soon change hands to owners who will provide meaningful funds to significantly strengthen of the squad. For this reason as well as the fact that the fans deserve to know I believe it is likely that in the coming days we will receive an update from the club or Chairman on the auction process. Due to confidentiality reasons the parties who have bid will not be named, but it is likely that there will be an official comment confirming that meaningful bids have been received and that the club's advisors are in the process of studying which bid to proceed with in the best interest of the future of the club.

Man Utd look to signing philipp lahm, Bayern may be interested as close to completing signing of van der weil, but would look to have park or berba as part of any deal as they have shown intrest in both players previously.think this could be a good deal for united subject to how much bayern would want in cash. here's to hoping mancini has a lot of spare dummies to give back to his kiddies when they start spitting them out lol.

Kevin Davies to Liverpool as 2nd striker and to cover for injured Fernando Torres as main striker playing with Jovanovic.

He wouldn't give me a name but he did say don't expect much as he reckons the maximum budget was £2.5m for a centre back, either signing fee or transfer fee. I don't know if anyone else could have an idea who the defender could be?}

 

15 Jul 2010 10:45:16
BluesFan

I assume you mean Daniel Aquino on the basis of the dude earlier who had the 'my pals, burd knows..' story.

I wish we could get Aquino, but i think this may be a FM dream (although he was awesome in FM 2009). Not getting my hopes up on theat one. Eagles may come but he is back down south, without signing as Bolton and Owen Coyle are desperate to land him, and I don't think Rangers would win the EPL v SPL battle on that one.

'Davis worth 810 m' i almost choked on my frosties when i read that one. although the Celtic fan was a bit harsh on the 'grubby paws' comment, he is right.. If an offer comes in for Davis around £45m he will be off, all Rangers players have their price at the moment, the only one that you would have to pay over the odds for is Bougherra.

Hopefully though, Rangers do start signing some players to strengthen the team.
Rino as replacement for Thomson?? could happen, but very that's more hope than expectation in my part. Conway is a diving cheat and I would prefer to see Driver or Eagles as our winger (Where Hearts are getting this £35m valuation for this lad i don't know)

Goodwillie is a good player but very similar to Miller and again vastly over priced, we need a big lad up front (rather than a big pussy like lafferty) We could easily afford Daly of Mehmet to tap in the goals we've lost through Boyd.
Again with 'Loan Signings' McCoist & Smith have both said they don't believe bringing in Loan Signings helps (remember Lee Martin anyone) and would prefer to let reserve players have the chance to prove themselves which is fair enough. Although i can see a great benefit to clubs such as Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Barca, Real loaning their top prospects to Rangers or Celtic for a season or two if they are playing champs league every season and playing in a league which is guarenteed to toughen you up. It worked for Gattuso, Arteta, Petrov, Cueller, Gio van Bronkhorst.

This is a rumours site son, you don't just pick up The Daily Star or The Sun, read the back page then regurgitate the nonsense on here! Schwarzer won't be joining £4m Fulham want! Like that's going to happen! Joe Cole Spurs (and not for the £100k pw the papers claim either!). Arsenal have never been interested in Cole it's all agent speak and media bullsht! Robinho more chance of hell freezing over or Bentley being signed from Spurs and made captain. Melo? Last season's rumours pal, try and keep up! He was one of the worst players in the World Cup (plus Wenger is only looking for back up at CDM, he has faith in Alex Song). Subotic is a player AW admires, but he has cheaper options available in Zapata, Tasci and Mertesacker. Unless Dortmund lower their valuation a deal won't be done.

To whoever said "REMEMBER ARABS DO NOT DRINK, SO FOR THEM TO BOOK A CLUB OR CLUBS JUST ISN'T FEASIBLE. BESIDES I WOULD IMAGINE DISCUSSIONS WOULD TAKE PLACE IN A NEUTRAL PLACE, LONDON PERHAPS?"

That is not true and is a popular western misconception of the practices of Islam. The arab world produces some excellent wines and Arabs are also partial to a decent brandy or scotch. Some Arabs do not drink on religious grounds () it just depends on their own interpretation of Islamic script. Likewise some arab countries are completely 'dry' for the same reason.

Lots of rumours about who the next overrated mercenary is that'll be joining Man City, but does anyone know what is happening with Robinho? Obviously, he doesn't want to return to Eastlands, especially with Mancini there, but can Santos afford him on a permanent deal? His football and form has certainly improved as a result of him returning to Brazil, but how and where will City recoup some of their £32.5 million outlay for what has to be the Premierships biggest waste of money ever! He is clearly not suited to the fast, physical game in England. La Liga was also too much of an ask for him, so this really only leaves the cesspit of Serie A do the likes of AC Milan and Juventus have the money to get him though? City need their heads examining first of all they sign Adebayor and now they seem keen to sign someone just as petulant and overrated in Balotelli!

I know Macheda, Hernandez, Welbeck, Diouf have all shown promise but if the above transfer was to go through we would need to get a striker, I also feel that we don't really need Lahm, great player but we need an attacking midfielder not a defender

Learn to spell before posting your lies, it might help create some degree of credibility.

This made me reread Dr X's post to find the spelling mistake still haven't found it. One of the more credible aspects of Dr X's post was unlike many on here it was written well enough to concievably by posted by someone educated enough to be involved in the process. I'm not saying I believe Dr X but I have no grounds to dismiss it.

They dooo sooo drink mate! they generally do it with a napkin or something similar to hide what is in the glass..they all do it and that way they don't offend each other! trust me spent plenty of time in the UAE to know that one! also seen plenty of them on holiday in HK & Indonesia hitting the night clubs!!

Just in from a VERY long day with news update.

First off forget all the rubbish about Golf Clubs/Hotels/Bars being blockbooked by Arabs in Liverpool. Not happening. I know nothing about what's happening with the players etc. but I DO know about the sale process and it isn't happening in Liverpool because I don't work there.

Secondly and again believe what you like, I'm past caring I am directly involved in PART of the process regarding LFC. I know that there have been bids made since the turn of this year. The big bid the one that is still on the table will remain open. The value of that bid has decreased because as new deadlines approach for H&G so the price they can ask falls. Hence the open auction "announced" by Broughton. It was ALWAYS an auction once the bank stepped in to control the sale process (back in January).

Third today has been hectic. Two good bids are in for the club, alongside the longstanding one. The first is from a usual suspect, the second from a consortium. As I've stated since I first posted on here LFC will have new owners plural.

Fourth Hicks is in SERIOUS financial trouble and suffereing from ill health too even more than is being revealed in the press. This is GOOD news for LFC fans.

And finally Broughton and Purslow will not be sending each other Xmas cards once they leave the club. That is as much as I can say. If Broughton had been listened to, the club would already have been sold indeed it had been agreed in principle just a ratification to proceed. Purslow scuppered that. The potential new owners are still there the bid is on the table it just needs the board to back it. Anyone wishing to know why Purslow isn't simply saying yes and ending this whole mess should consider his power games at Anfield and beyond and his links to US buisness interests.

As for me and my work colleagues overtime galore until the sale is done. It MUST be over by the time the transfer window closes. If not at least two bidders will walk away and wait for administration which WILL occur if there is no sale by October 2010. That is a given. Dr X

Yep you're right I don't belive you and many sensible people won't either as all you have tried is to do is put a new date out there for fans to cling hope on.
The club will be sold when it is sold, you know as much as the next person in otherwords you don't know anything, nice try but I for one won't and don't bite.

How can Purslow scupper the deal? Surely, as Chairman Martin Broughton has 'casting vote'. So, even in the event of a deadlock, his decision is final. Also, if Hicks really is in such a dire financial state, then surely even he would realise that at some point he is going to have to accept a bid whether he likes it or not. Administration is not an option for him, if he wants to get a halfdecent profit out of the deal.

Taking you on your word that you are close to the process, what do you feel the chances are of a deal being concluded before the transfer window closes? Your statement that LFC will have new owners, plural, would suggest that the consortium's bid is the most likely to be accepted..is that right?

Don't owners have to be approved by the FA as 'fit & proper persons'? Even though the test criteria are a farce, wouldn't that mean that we'll soon see papers lodged with the FA to approve any bidder before they sign on the bottom line?

There HAS to be something going on. Broughton has too great a reputation to uphold he stands to lose too much if he fails in his remit to sell the club.

Ed what are your thoughts? There MUST be SOME progress on the sale process.. {editor's note – it is just a case of waiting right now, until the deadline for the first round of bids is over, then some real news should start to leak out.}

Don't expect any more Everton signings until January. Moyes' team were superb in the 2nd half of last season and he wants to keep the same squad (except Gosling). Expect Pienaar to stay as well as Yakubu and Yobo BUT if they are not top 6 at Christmas all three will go and be replaced by the likes of Landon Donovan, Stephane Sessegnon, Nedum Onuoha and Victor Obinna.

 

15 Jul 2010 02:09:12
Heard this from someone in the know that Nicky Maynard is due to sign for Leeds United sooner rather than later. The last formalities of the deal are being brokered this week, and Maynard is due for a medical before signing once Grayson and his team return from their Slovakian tour.

Having a laugh hes worth £810 million. Davis is happy and settled i don't see him being sold he will be next rangers future captain.



Lmao at this. I mean really.The comment by the I mean.

810 million for Davis? Firstly, he isn't worth that by any stretch of the imagination, secondly why would any club pay that much money to a club who need all the pennies they can possibly get their grubby little paws on?

Ah karma, such an excellent force.

Anyway, Celtic to confirm Juarez deal within 48 hours subject to a work permit being obtained.

15 Jul 2010 01:40:58
To all the LFC fans posting numerous rumors of us signing quality foreign players, please take a note of what i am going to say.
According to the new FIFA Homegrown Rule each premier league club has to field 4 homegrown players in their starting 11 along with registering a squad of 25 players including homegrown players, plus a club could have any no of U21 players in their side but they can also be accounted for the HG rule if they qualify.
In our squad we just have Gerrard, Glenn J and Carra who can be counted as HG and are experienced enough to start every match, we also have some other HG players but they don't have either the quality or the experience to start.
That was the main reason of Roy saying in his interview that he will buy english players. Even to fulfill the rule we have to buy at least 1 HG player and 2 more just in case any of the 4 HG players get injured. So please stop posting lists of players we might buy unless they include 34 HG players.

We need strengthening in the following positions and i will name the players that we may have a chance to buy.

LB Warnock, Bridge, R.Taylor, Olsson(Blkbrn), Konchesky
CB C.Davies, L.Young, Dann, S.Taylor, Shawcross, G, Cahil
LW M.Taylor, Ethrington, J.Cole, Jarvis, Lennon
CM Parker, M.DAvies, M.Johnson, D.Murphy, Dorrans, Noble, Cattermole, Jenas, Barry, Guthrie
RW Walcott, A.Young, SWP
ST C.Cole, D.Bent, Crouch, C.Wickham, A.Caroll

Before you go on slating me that LFC don't have any chance of signing some of the players that i mentioned, i would like to tell you that i am not saying that these player are the targets or linked with us. I just mentioned them for no reason.
I hope this gets posted as it would stop some of the nonsense people post on this site.
Also ED, you are doing a very good job running this site. Thanx a lot.

Sense And Logic. {editor's note – sorry mate, but the UEFA ruling was scrapped.}

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


roirdan has already said in the papers he can't wait to play for hibs in europe next season and if he were to leave it wouldn't be to rangers

LIVERPOOL NEWS

There will be no announcement on the 15th/16th or 17th or in the near future. Liverpool fans waiting for the 15th and hoping, will have to keep hoping because the reality is simple in the appointment of Roy! BAD TIMES AHEAD FOR LIVERPOOL! There will be no Champions League for at least 3 years and by then Man City, Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal will have more quality through spending and players coming through! Liverpools days have been and gone and Liverpools chances of winning the league again sadly is very slim, i know its harsh but its true! Times change and theres nothing wrong with supporting a midtable team. Just because Liverpool has been successful does not give us any right to win the league, or to be in the top 4. Alot of Liverpool fans seem to think we belong at the TOP which is not the case, Liverpool belong where they finish at the end of each season.

Im a big Glasgow Rangers fan and can't wait for transfers to start happening, i mean crazy big transfers. Anyway, with celtic trying to fill there team with injury prone unproven money grabbers it makes me wonder why there has been little activity at ibrox until i heard of the chris eagles bid of around 1.5 mill too burnley which i think would be a great piece of business.

Meanwhile scotland has no money to really buy
players. u lot in the premiership are gonna buy everybody according too the guys on this site. I love people who are always hoping for these great signings for there clubs but u need to be realistic guys. Nobody in england will get OZIL or SCHWEINSTEIGER BALOTELLI or SNEIJDER unless ur the ARabs playtoy. Lets be honest, when the arabs get bored at eastlands wots going to happen to man city? There turnover won't cover all there astronomical wages for decent players at best. We shud all follow the germans in the 50+1 rule which would mean all the fans would be majority shareholders stopping the threat of the glazers ever ruining ur club by running up debt they have no intention of paying back.


Just a football fan fearing the worsed.

wot do u think Ed? {editor's note – I love the idea about the fans being the majority shareholders. That is how it should always be.}

News coming out of Newcastle is that Hughton will be rewarded for last seasons efforts with a new 2 year deal. Also, money is there too spend, and after confirming the Gosling deal Newcastle will push through for Djalo or Erdinc before the season starts, probably going to cost them about £6million. Also Per Cijan Skjelbred again being mentioned, but the fact Rosenborg are looking for £7 million will put off Newcastle. Juan Albin or Jonathan De Guzman are being mention as frees, and it looks as though De Guzman may join the club on trial next week.
Celtic taking serious look at Alan Smith, but his wage demands of £50,000 look too much.
Also can confirm Newcastle had a significant 7 figure sum turned down last week for Mulumbu of West Brom.

Hi, i currently study at uni in valencia and share a apartment with a girl who's brother plays for real murcia but was on loan at a english premiership team. He said on phone today that fellow team mate Daniel Aquino (seemingly very good player) was to sign for Glasgow Rangers next week. Hercules and Betis were also interested but player has decided to go to Glasgow. This will definately go ahead at some point next week as long as personal terms and medical are passed.

Manchester united are keeping eyes on steven defour, if any other bid is made for him ferguson is keen to match it, if no bid made this summer then they will try in january. Fergie sees him as scholesy's successor.




Although I agree that fergie is looking at him there will will be constant reviews on him untill he gets back to at least his old standard before utd will lodge any bid. Even if another club tries to steal a march and get him before he is back to his best i wud be surprised if utd went and got him after ando and hargreaves have never reached their best again.

Plus He is more of a cm/box to box player not a Scholesy job more similar to fletcher i wud say

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."

yes they have cordened off the area because the qualifiers for the womens open next week is being held there

stop with the formby golf club rumours please muppets

of course there are foreigners there with helicopters because golfers make good money and some of the usual top players have been poor this season or injured and have to qualify

just leave the formby rumours in the bunker

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.

COYP!!



Sorry but Lonergan is one of the best keepers in the championship, maybe even the best. He is better than Westwood, Speroni and any other name you can pick out.

Kev, a coventry fan !

"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.

THE 7M OFFER FROM SUNDERLAND IS EITHER A STARTING BID OR JUST A GAMBLE TO TEST FERGIE, IF ANYONE WAS TO BUY CARRICK HE WILL GO FOR A MINIMUM OF 10M, ANY FOOTY FAN WITH HALF A BRAINCELL WOULD KNOW THAT. YOU ARE EITHER ANTI UNITED OR NEW TO FOOTBALL? AND HARRY HAS SAID HE (CARRICK) IS A TRIFFIC PLAYER AND IF HE WAS AVAILABLE HE WOULD BE INTERESTED.
