Charlton transfers
Bradley Bubb - Aldershot Town
Conor Wickham - Sunderland

Danny Haynes - free
Ricardo Fuller - free
Dale Stephens - free
Johnnie Jackson - 100k

No way we are getting rid of haynesy and jacko!!!

Biggest load of rubbish I've ever read, let jackson go for 100k he's our top goal scorer this year and dale stephens who could have gone in january for 2 millon, wake up pal

Can't see Jackson leaving he's been arguably our best player this season, but i'd love to see wickham at the valley

You don't of seen much football this season two of our best players by far

I'm a season ticket holder and I just put this up to seethe responses

This kid must have a free lesson at school. Maybe give solly a free too?

Bolton and FC Basel have joined Southampton in the race to sign emerging Australian right back Trent Sainsbury. A £500,000 fee could be enough to secure his signature with Southampton still near the front of the queue for his signature.

Who is he

A good player! (coming from an Aussie)

Back up for Clyne sorted if we get him then

I've heard of him plays for central coast mariners in the a league. just broken through into their first team, very highly rated right back. plays for the socceroos under 20 squad.

would be a great addition to bolton's squad, we need young hungry players like sainsbury & riley. time to get rid of mears & ricketts.

dougie eyes unknown talent he brought in jedinak & parr at palace.



16 Apr 2013 21:53:48
Cortouis to join Swansea on loan next season to replace Barcelona bound Michel Vorm.

Doubt it very much

Don't make me laugh! Worm in Barcelona? He is not worth it.

Burnley are set to sack manager Sean Dyche following their slide down the championship table

Hope so

Sean Dyche is a good manager. I saw him when he was manager for Watford last season. Burnley played well against us this season in the 3-3 draw. Give him time and he will deliver

Not good enough needs someone who kknows burley FC tactics all wrong I go on the turf and seen this coming nothing has changed under the current manager we need investment for the playing staff but the manager has to go

Im sorry but Dyche is not good enough for burnley fc and I have said that from day one! we need passing attacking football! not long ball punts up the pitch! But major changes need to be enforced over the summer, its going to be an interesting one! Starting with the board. UTC

If Burnley were to sack Sean Dyche it would in all probability require the payment of compensation to him, this is most unlikely with the current directors.

Since his appointment the style of football has become less and less attractive to watch.

Hopefully, Burnley can retain their Championship level for next season and that the board and management can show some passion and ambition in the future.

Dyche has no clue on how to attack whatsoever, bring someone in that knows his stuff, eg a sacked premier league manager, i'd like to see di matteo but that would never happen

Shrewsbury to re-sign Jimmy Ryan in the summer if Scunthorpe go down.

Would be good

Swansea INS:
Iago Aspas-7m
Alex McCarthy-2.5m
Jonathan de Guzman-8m
Scott Sinclair-5m
Romelu Lukaku-Season long loan

Swansea OUTS:
Michel Vorm-Barcelona-12m
Ashley Williams-Liverpool-12m
Nathan Dyer-Liverpool-4m

You watch a guy (McCarthy) have a good game on TV and suddenly he's signing for your club, hmmmmm.

Sinclair back?
Dyer and Williams to Liverpool
Vorm to Barcelona

There's no way Sinclair will come back. I can see aspas joining along with canas and botia. I can also see de Guzman staying. Media suggesting williams agent meet with arsenal. I can't see him going to be honest but £12 m for 29 year old wouldn't be a bad deal. Who'd be the new captain? My money's on chico or Rangel. I can see vorm going though and £12 m represents good business.

Aspas and De Guzman are probables, Lukaku a possible the remainder - pipedreams

Liverpool cannot find the money for Williams yet alone Dyer, without flogging Andy Carrol and getting Swansea to take some of their dead wood as a makeweight

No way Sinclair can go back to Swansea. He turned his back on us so all bridges are burned. Besides he isn't good enough. We have excellent wingers already.

No way Sinclair is coming back and dyer isn't leaving we definitely won't let him go for 4mil

16 Apr 2013 21:42:00
Williams will get found out if he goes to Liverpool. never worth 12m

Williams worth no more than 3 mill

£2.5m for Alex McCarthy! Put a 1 in front of it and it might start to be taken seriously

Don't believe Dyer has the desire to leave. An article I read a while back, he states that he is all to aware what has happened to others who have left the club in the best for greater pastures and failed miserably despite their outstanding form when with us. He also stated that while he was enjoying his football, why would he want leave?!

Laudrup plays him frequently and not because he's a prolific goal scorer (let's face it, he's hardly a world class finisher) but he does pose a goal threat and oodles of pace, so even if he's not on the ball, he draws in that defender none the less freeing up space for the other lads and if he isn't marked, offers a 'quick' attacking option. When he's on fire, he's definitely one of the hardest wingers to cope with in the league. Every Jack believes in him and would loathe to see him leave for a measly £4m. Is he worth less than Scott Sinclair (who want be back btw)? NO! He's worth double!

Williams rumor is gathering pace but I still believe he'll be here next season (unless he feels he's at his pinnacle and this will be his only chance of a top 6 club).

Vorm to Barca? I (not so) secretly (now) hope this transpires. To say the best club in the world came to us for our players is a massive compliment and something that will be (another) welsh first whilst in the PL.

Ok £1. 25m for McCarthy that's about right



16 Apr 2013 16:08:29
Swansea City are set to sign Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas for 7m in July.



16 Apr 2013 15:11:12
Rumoured that new Brighton and Hove Albion Youth Manager will be highly regarded youth Manager Phil Spary. He likes to play with a settled team and play out from back which has been identified as having a better "fit" with the Albion style. First signing is highly likely to be dominant keeper Sam Spary who also happens to be his son! Source - from within club, likely to be announced Youth Awards Evening at Amex Monday, 29 April

Excellent Youth Manager, but have it on very good authority Spary happy doing current role and would not consider job. Albion will need to look elsewhere if they plan any Youth changes.

17 Apr 2013 09:16:49
Can categorically state this will not happen. Good manager but no interest in Albion role. More chance of Barnes joking Derby or Millwall at end of season for 450k rolling contract or no rolling contract! JP

Liam Brady! be out of work at the end of the season.

Phil, you've blatantly written these yourself. Your Seagulls Youth FC Vice Chairman.

preston boss simon Grayson is in advance talks with Norwich city over a deal for Declan rudd on a long term loan deal as Norwich are inpressed with how preston have looked after rudd also Grayson as already lined up new faces as he aims to add to the team for next season, it looks like byrom, proctor, beardsley are set to be released stuckmann will sign a new two yr deal

Norwich have already said that Rudd is going to be for sale in the summer to generate some funds.

Paul Ince was watching him at Deepdale just over a week ago and it's been reported that he will put a bid in during the closed season.

Norwich have said they will not sell Rudd so Ince must have been watching someone else. though managers are expected to take in at least one other game in the week, so suppose Deepdale is handy for his Wirral home.

16 Apr 2013 20:27:14
rudd as said if the chance comes he will join preston he loves the place and fans also ince was watching smith the Oldham forward



16 Apr 2013 09:17:38
Brighton INS:
Van Dijk (2m)
Noone (season long loan)
Bridge (free)
Murray (4m)
Rodwell (3m)
Snodgrass (3m)
Tello (season long loan)
Zamora ( free)
Crofts (Millwall 1m)
Barnes ( Plymouth 500,000k)
Vicente ( Real Zaragoza free)
Mackail Smith Peterbourgh (2.5m)

Murray from Palace is definite

We could not afford £500k for Barnes.

We haven't got 500 let alone 500,000

Snodgrass. that's a joke right? One of Norwich's best players this season, happy at the club, playing regularly. Get real.

Snodgrass for 3M?! Are you being serious?! Not one single tiny chance that is ever happening!

As a Brighton fan I can catergorically reject all these rumour with the exception of Van Dijk who almost signed in January but Groingen asked to keep him until the summer when a deal will go through then. The rest are dreadful rumours, stop playing foorball manager

Rodwell £3m, you can't possibly mean Jack, so who is it? {Ed025's Note - if it was....that really would be a rodwell incident.. :)

£4m for Murray? Well done Brighton! Hats off to ya! that's a great bit of business considering he went to Palace on a Free Transfer!

Vicente has to agree a contract first at brighton

16 Apr 2013 15:38:50
You've got Zamora's valuation about right. and qpr may cut their losses (£4.5m) and let him go for nothing BUT are you going to pay him 52k a week?

Haha, at last make them realistic! Us paying 500,000k for Barnes? For one, we don't have the kind of money to be spending, especially on arrogant so and so's like him and he wouldn't lower himself to this league. He's the kind of player who thinks he should be playing for Barcelona, keeping Messi out of the team.

Bobby Zamora the Brighton ledgend

I can see snodgrass leaving norwich who are destined for relegation, but doubt he would go to brighton

If we go up we won't get no one and also we won't get Murray back unless we go up and palace don't won't sell mackail smith as we don't have enough alternatives and won't get rid of Vicente yet apart from that its ok

17 Apr 2013 20:24:27
who has come up with this ridiculous list {Ed003's Note - He never left a name.}

We defiantly will get players if we go up if you get 60m for relegation promotion must be big and we won't stand a chance if we don't get anyone



16 Apr 2013 08:33:20
Looks like a host of League 1 & Championship clubs are lining up to offer PNE goal keeper Thorsten Stuckmann a contract for next season.

Stuckman's contract is up at the end of the month and the on/off goalie who has sat on the bench much of the season at PNE will be looking to secure a new job as a free agent.

16 Apr 2013 11:25:31
stuckmann will be preston no 1 keeper next season when rudd returns to norwich

Are you referring to the local park bench near his home? He's already started 24 games for the 1st team this season. Everybody in the game knows that Thorsten has, over the summer break, got to work on his general distribution and kicking. Otherwise he will have difficulty in improving his career

Larry knows Rudd is off to Blackpool, so Larry has put Stuck's back in goal to stop him leaving. Hope he doesn't go but I can't blame him as he's sat on the bench far too much and he should have been no1 throughout

16 Apr 2013 12:05:45
rudd will not be going to blackpool if he go out on loan or leaves Norwich he as said he will sign for preston so stop all this blackpool stuff why work for a bad manager like ince when he can work for a decent boss like grayson

Norwich have said they are selling Rudd in the Summer as a certain North West Club has put a good offer in. that's why Ince was at the last game he ever played for PNE. He didn't want him injured for next season

Stuckman leaving will be down to what he's offered by the other clubs. all will better his wages but it's the playing time that he most wants and not just a part time job at PNE

Decent untill you/if get to the championship then he's awfull look at his track record sacked by 2 clubs and left one which also means he's not loyal (agent Grayson builds you up to take you down)

Norwich have stated 100% they have no intention of selling Declan Rudd, but intend to develop him for the future with the club. In the meantime they intend to loan him out with view to him gaining experience.

Rudd is 4th choice at Norwich so not really going to play for them for some time. and the cash may just make them change their minds

But if he is available for a loan deal where would managers send their players to gain some quality experience.

The Championship with Blackpool who have had loans like Joe Hart, Callum Mcmanaman, Seamus Coleman, Nouha Dicko, Barry Bannan & Nathan Delfouneso


League 1 PNE who's only other decent loan was Todd Kane from Chelsea. He played a couple of matches and left to join Blackburn!

Pne. s only decent loan apart from rudd has been Connolly todd kane could. nt even get in the side so don't talk rubbish.

Is that Todd Kane from Chelsea who's playing in the 'Championship' for Blackburn. I thought you meant the famous Jack King who once played for Didcot & Woking. now he can play the PNE way

Before you make judgement have you actually seen jack king play yes it was a gamble but he. s been great for us.



16 Apr 2013 08:25:41
Brian McDermott wants to kick start his summer spending at leeds with the signing of Bolton defender Matt mills.

He can have him not been that good a signing. Although Freedman discovered he was carrying an old injury that Coyle didn't know about, whch could have affected his play.

I think Dougie will sell him and bring in his own players to partner Wheater. I would love Dawson to stay.



16 Apr 2013 08:07:55
Trotter going to qpr




16 Apr 2013 03:27:38
