Okmy mate has armand traoure on his blackberry list and has told me that Armand Traoure has updated his status pic to a picuture of him with Eden Hazard today at the Colney training ground.


Is it me or are we about to sign the future world player of the year!

I actually have a Blackberry at the moment, I have the Blackberry Curve 8520. If the Blackberry list you are referring too is the Blackberry Messenger list, then they don't have "status pictures" as you say, they show a display name ONLY and anything you add to it such as: "John Smith :) had a long day". This is how they appear, no picture at all. Your mate must have a phone from the future. Give me all the information on how to get one of those phones, would love a phone like that.


I have the same phone as you, and you can view people's default pictures on BlackBerry Messenger, depending on the version of BBM you have. I myself can view people's default pictures, so its not a phone from the future.

Hail Hail {editor's note – nothing yet.}

Rumours linking Steve Davies with Newcastle are nonsense, it's fairly obvious Thompson was deemed surplus to requirements because davies will be used in his favoured central berth. Don't profess to have any inside info but it would seem mcarthur is a stick on to join rangers. Can't believe the lack of quality Celtic are bringing in, looks to me he's just changing like for like and looking for a marquee signing with the money he gets for mcgeady.

Newcastle United,

We are signing Big Bird and Kermit The Frog, My source is Cookie Monster. You heard it here first!!

This rumour is about as believable as any other I have read on here. Come on guys less of Football manager and lets be realistic.

On a serious note heard that we might be going in for Paul Scharner, who is a free agent. Pub talk that's all, not proclaiming that I know anyone in the know or all that crap.

Dirk Kuyt has been spotted outside the Feyenoord stadium. It is well known that he would love the opportunity to take over the captaincy now Gio has retired. Feyenoord has new investors and are also linked with bringing back Kalou and Drenthe.

Just read some great news on a website (although unreliable) but what it says makes perfect sense.

Wenger is known for spending very little on players, but it says arsenal are going to spend 32 million on this trio:

Samir Handanovic

Per Mertesacker

Mesut Ozil

Very smart and just what we need ?

 

16 Jul 2010 22:23:29

Ive also herd that david james is coming to celtic

 

16 Jul 2010 22:15:37
People on this site need to grow up. Torres is not leaving the reds and how do i know this, it simple, his armband proved he was red. Torres have given many clues of staying for instance, the world cup picture with torres wearing the lfc scarf, he told a mascot he was staying the article is on lfc.tv and finaly torres has said he wants to make up with the fans because of a injury plagued season. Surely this indicates that he is staying at liverpool. As for mascherano he is amazing player bit has disrespected the club by not answering to lfc phone calls, texts and email. This is only going to be the major player leaving the reds. Trust me you have my word.

Bad news for us Liverpool fans. Acoording to SSN, Fernando Torres refused to commit his future to the club.
This sounds very worrying. Obviously if Fernando was planning on starting the new season while still wearing the LFC shirt, he would of guaranteed Roy that he will still be here come the end of August.
Supposedly Roy had only a short conversation with Fernando. Like why the hell would he fly for 2 straight hours to have a short chat. Surely he could have doing that over the phone. I think Torres made it quite clear to Roy that he don't want to be at LFC next season. Fernando's attitude is absolutely terrible.
He's really starting to annoy me know.
I say lets take 50mil for him and flog him off. His head has been turned by europes elite and he now seems like a completely different person. He's also got a taste of what it feels like to win some silverware after winning the World Cup.
He obviously thinks that Liverpool aint a big enough club for him now. All this b.s he has in his book about wanting to stay at LFC for a long time and how money would never affect his decision making BLAH BLAH BLAH.
I say get rid of him. The whole club does not revolve around this clown. LFC is bigger than this.

SEE YOU LATER NANDO YOU TURNCOAT. LIVERPOOL FC WAS HERE BEFORE YOU CAME AND WILL STILL BE HERE WHEN YOU LEAVE.

who ever wrote this must be a sad deluded manchester fan torres or hodgson have not said any think about the talks they had don't belive anythink untill it comes from the player or manager

RED LENIN rattled on at 16 Jul 2010 16:56:38 about LFC420's note about Hodgson's throw away comment:

LFC420 quoting Mt H: As far as we are concerned he is a Liverpool player and we want him to remain a Liverpool player. He is not for sale and we don't welcome any offers for him)"

Red Lenin: "I am surprised you do not unsderstand what this means. Basically, if a club puts a player up for sale then if he has a loyalty bonus in his contract (which players of the calibre of Torres invariably do), then the club has to pay it as it is them who are selling the player as opposed to the player asking to be sold. If a player asks to be sold (puts in a transfer request) then they forfeit any loyalty bonus. All this really is is a warning to Torres – we're not offering you for sale so if you want to go you ask and as a result lose your loyalty bonus, and a warning to any would–be suitors that they are going to have to pay a pretty penny to get their target......"

My question. I know nothing of "loyalty bonuses. But, traditionally, players were paid 5% of the transer fee if they did not put in a transfer request. And 0% if they did. These rules were governed by the league – not by the club.

Has this changed?

Sharkey.

Celtic News

Previous posts will prove that my info has been pretty on the money. Here are a few developments worth watching;

Samaras Club are desperate to off load and replace with Anthony stokes. Sammy has two offers from the Championship but they cannot meet his wages at Celtic. Hibs will accept 2m + addons for Stokes who is desperate to move to Celtic.

Ramis This deal is close to being completed and Lennon is also considering a move for Mark Reynolds of Motherwell, this will leave the door open for Loovens to return to Cardiff in a possible swap deal for Ross McCormack.

Bellamy / Keane Let's put and end to this Keane will not return to Celtic but their is every possibility that Bellamy will move north once McGeady deal is done and dusted. Lot's of choices for him in EPL but it's his preference to move to Celtic or Cardiff.

David James If his family agree, he will sign a two year deal.

The Agent.

Hello, I am A huge LFC Fan, and over the last 2/3 weeks I have read mixed reactions over the news of LFC. Please ED, Clarify whats happening to LFC are they Good/Bad times Ahead, and who are Roys Targets? ?
Please Post : ii Kingg LFC {editor's note there is not a lot happening currently. Hodgson is assessing the squad and tentative initial enquiries have gone out for players in the positions that his staff recommended that the club needed. But no formal bids for anyone have actually been placed as far as I am aware, that will have to wait until Roy completes his own assessment. So probably nothing until after the weekend.}

ed did you mean he "roy" recommended or his staff recommended?because right now many of the first team players are away on holiday so how can he assess fully what he needs ?oh is the loic remy story true or just a smokescreen for another player ? {editor's note – I mean the ones his staff recommended, just so that he could get an idea of what they would cost. It is literally just a casual enquiry right now, he has to assess the current playing staff and then have a look at dvds, scouting reports etc of the players recommended. He can assess what he needs right now because it is the first team players that he knows well, the ones he needs to assess are the ones on the fringes. He wants to know what the cover is like when the first choice player is out.}

 

16 Jul 2010 21:09:33
Any Liverpool player who is not 100% committed must leave. This goes for Torres and Gerrard. Sick of the lack of passion for our club. Players like Kuyt and Reina will flourish under Roy.

As for transfers. I doubt Roy will bring in Cole who is injury prone like Torres. Two very good players taking it in turns in the medical room? No thanks.

Remy looks to be done. Although Roy's comments suggest he doesn't know who he is, Liverpool's technical director has watched this lad for 5 years.

Benega will come in for Masch. Although in my dream world I would like to see Alonso.

As for the left back position Steven Warnock will rightfully be back at Liverpool. A player who carries out things well. Very consistent.

Other rumours I've heard: Scott Parker, Matty Etherington, Simon Davies (Ew) and er, Christiano Ronaldo.. Bahaha.

Okmy mate has armand traoure on his blackberry list and has told me that Armand Traoure has updated his status pic to a picuture of him with Eden Hazard today at the Colney training ground.


Is it me or are we about to sign the future world player of the year!


OK, to whoever wrote this?!! If he is a friend of yours, he won't mind showing you this photo and allowing you to post up on this site to the editor?? ED I'm sure you you would be happy to confirm for us? Well lets face it, if Armand is happy enough to put the pic up on one public site, he won't mind it being looked on another site?

Schwatzer is still Wengers number one GK target and Wenger is after a top class defender from 6 targets i listed a few weeks ago. Wenger is also looking for another "Central Figure".

Big big news coming out of Old Trafford. Negotiations between W Rooney and Man U board over improved terms and contract board over improved terms

Rooney said to be extremely unhappy with terms of performance related bonuses and feels he has no option but to put in a transfer request as he no option but to put in a transfer request as he feels the club (Gill and Glazers) don't respect him How do I know this?

Barnsley FC

Been down to Oakwell for the season ticket, the ticket office was closed for lunch, so I had a walk around the Mecca.

As I walked round to the east stand, I found the gates were locked, but could see three guys shaking hands with Mark Robbins.it was clear that one of them was Adam Le Fondre.

Barnsley & Rotherham fans alike, get ready for an announcement

3 people shaking hands with him? At once? Who was in the middle?

 

16 Jul 2010 21:35:52
bull! mentioned at 16 Jul 2010 18:22:51:

"I'm sure Madrid didn't pay liverpool the reported 30m in a lump sum, so should he not be in Jose's plans then the likeliest club he will be going to is LFC, very similar to the Robbie Keane Deal, Defoe from spurs to pompey and back again etc etc etc. Money doesn't exchange hands! And even if it should it will be an Alonso return and an installment from LFC to madrid, with the sale of Masc it is very possible. Alonso frequents big games at Anfield to watch LFC as he truely loves the club. Please prove me wrong!"

Your suggestion about money not changing hands is wide of the mark and potentially misleading. Whilstmany clubs have bought players over, say for payments spread over two years, this will not be allowed after 2012 – where payments must be made within a year of the purchase – or possibly, without checking, it may even be within the season of purchase.

Liverpool are owed nothing on Alonso. Whilst the final payment on Aquilani is owed to Roma, I think Liverpoool have otherwise cleared their final debts owing on players with the recent payment for Glen J. No dobt Ed. will put me right if I have erred here.

Sharkey.

Thought provoking Celtic News

Ledly is number 16 and Murphy number 27 (celtic fc superstore) despite the rumours Joe would get the number 7 shirt. There is absolutely no way in the world Celtic will start the season without a number 7, this will sound strange to the english teams but the hoops and gers fans will know what i mean and know how high a regard that number is held in, Jinky, King Kenny, Henrik and a restaurant called 'number 7'. Unless Jaurez gets it then it would suggest Celtic have some other players lined up, don't know who but it is a special number in the line up more often than not filled by our main man.

EllBee


I was thinking exactly the same thing. I think the number 7 jersey will be kept for a big name signing, who?? no idea but we all know the prestige of that number at Celtic Park. Time will tell..

SEE YOU LATER NANDO YOU TURNCOAT. LIVERPOOL FC WAS HERE BEFORE YOU CAME AND WILL STILL BE HERE WHEN YOU LEAVE.


really ? according to sky sports news?, been watching skysports and i certainly didn't get this opinion from the press conference..

in relation to "why would roy travel for two hours just to speak to nando on holiday, for a couple of minutes"when he could have just made a phone call.EASY.Because our new manager is Roy hodgson and that's the way he works, he is not a manager like benitez who'd just pick up a phone to talk to him, the fact that Roy took time out from our training camp to speak to nando speaks volumes about him, he is attached to his players, unlike our former boss who was detatched from the players. , Also Roy stated in the video that he had not had THAT conversation with Torres his short conversation was on football matters and how he was looking forward to working with him. Nando DID NOT refuse to give assurances to Roy.(thats a full stop by the way!)

Nando later spoke to christian purslow, probably so he could find out if the club was heading in the right direction,

so come on lets not start burning the number nine shirt before we know the facts..and to be honest i don't see much Fact in the statement that "torres refused to commit his future to liverpool"

Xabi Alonso could be on his way to Arsenal. He's not in Mourinhos plans for the future, and Liverpool can't afford to buy him back so Wenger has made a bid.

Marvellous that so many bean counters are fully au fait with the financial status of LFC esp.from their cockney sheds.

IF Alonso were allowed to leave Real then his destination will be Anfield or Real Sociedad. I had hoped that when Jovanovic did not get his favoured no.14 jersey (his Serbia number) that it may have meant a return for Xabi, but it looks unlikely. However, when Mascherano is sold there will be more than enough money to sign Alonso should Mourinho take a speed wobble and sell his midfielder. Gerrard and Torres have both consistently expressed their admiration for our former no.14 and what better way to keep our stars happy?

RE: Guy's, can you please stop posting rubbish on here about MUFC?

I've told you all previously that Fergie wants 1 or possibly 2 players when, not if, Vidic goes to Real Madrid.

Modic will be signed, trust me 20 to 25 million is the agreed price. All this talk about him signing a new 5 year contract at Spurs is right, however there are several clauses in the contract that can easily be triggered accordingly, hence the value of the bid. Why else do you think Harry is so keen to snap up Joe Cole. Simple common sense support this. Lennon on then right, Bale on the Left with Joe Cole playing more centrally, hence his recent remarks reffering to his desire to play in a more central role.

But he won't be signed though mate will he?? Come on be honest, you invented the whole story. Stick to your day job at the DriveThru.

Suarez to Spurs still tingling. Following his selfstyled 'hand of God' moment Suarez is a marked man in African Players minds ever hear of Obeah? No it's not Scouse for 'lissen to yer mam' but W. African spiritual practice and not of the Mystic Meg variety it's very, very real in many minds. Thus many African players are convinced Suarez is hexed and are beyond reluctant to wear the same shirt. 'Arry is unfazed big surprise. Spurs have Bassa and Headphones from Cameroon but they could care less. Happy Days Yizzles just be sure to say 'good morning Mr Magpie!'

On a more mundane note, Fabiano a def poss Gilt Grade quality, plus good for Sandro etc..

Modric/Bale going nowhere, they are reasons Spurs are doing what they're about to do.

Big big news coming out of Old Trafford.

Negotiations between W Rooney and Man U board over improved terms and contract extension on the brink of collapse.

Rooney said to be extremely unhappy with terms of performance related bonuses and feels he has no option but to put in a transfer request as he feels the club (Gill and Glazers) don't respect him.

How do I know this? My uncle plays squash with none other than Ted Rooney (Waynes dad)

Watch this space.


What a ridiculous thing to post, even if rooney is unhappy which i highly doubt as he always states how happy he is at Utd then why would this jump to him handing in a transfer request? he'd probably just be greedy and stall on signing to get more money. Rooney will sign the contract extension, so don't bother posting stupid things like this again its pointless.

Liverpool are on the verge of signing French striker Loic Remy on a fiveyear contract for a fee of around £12.5 million [15m],
The 23yearold is expected to travel to Merseyside tomorrow to undergo a medical before joining Roy Hodgson's squad at its training camp in Switzerland, according to sources at Remy's club, Nice.
Liverpool are expected to pay Nice £7.5 million [9m] upfront with the rest to follow in installments

No they are not. If you read what hodgson said at a press conference today it's clear that Remy is not an option.
Quote "He's a player I know very little about. If I am going to be interested in a player I am going to have to watch him playing, study him and make judgments which I have not been able to." Unquote
So stop writing crap.

it on ssn you noodle he aint going to come out and say i am interested in that player other wise they will get out bidded {editor's note – Nice have already openly admitted the lad is for sale by telling people there was interest from Liverpool. Nothing Roy can say or do will change the fact that any interested parties will make a bid now.}

i can tell you that tommy spurr is not goin to forest infact he is not goin anywhere

Was at the City Ground today, to pick up my season ticket. I saw at the back of the Brian Clough stand, two guys wearing Forest training type shirts seemingly being shown around by a guy wearing the same shirt, but in his mid 40's. These guys looked around the mid to late 20's in age. Did anyone see these guys today? Around about 2pm I was there. The reason I am posting this is that the first team squad are in Portugal, with the exception of Adebola, Bennett and McGoldrick and they were definately too old for the youth team. So I am wondering if they were new signings? I did not recognise them, I maybe wrong with my theory!
Any ideas??

Editor,

Read a few rumours posted today concerning Arsenal.

1) "One of the best signings Arsenal have ever made" someone said about a midfielder.

2) The one about Daniele De Rossi for 24m or 17m + Denilson or Eboue. Eboue has been linked to Roma before so im not sure (Really hope so though i can't see it)

3) Recent one regarding Eden Hazard at Colney ground.

Any info on any of these or any thing else at all Ed? {editor's note – I really don't believe any of those rumours. The first one is too speculative, when there is absolutely no reason to be like that, so it was just someone taking a hopeful punt imo. The second one is just rehashed paper talk in my opinion and the third just a nice little fantasy.}

 

16 Jul 2010 18:48:21
Let's cut the bullsh@t rumours who Rangers will sign, anyone with a brain knows they cannot venture into the bluechip market, the Gers will sign McArthur (Hamilton), anyone else coming in will be a loan deal and if we are honest this will still bring back the SPL Championship, because the filth are signing 2nd raters that 10 years ago would never have been allowed to wear the jersey and unfortunately Rangers are in the same position, but at least we sign people who will play for the cause. If this predecent carries on, Scottish football will be finished in 15 years if the powers that be, don't get their act together.

RED LENIN

"Everyone seems to thionk that if Torres were to go he wouldn't go to a British club however that would only hold true if Liverpool decided to sell him. If he put a transfer request in he will go to whoever meets the clubs asking price and he himself feels is offering the best package and he is most lilkely to win things with."

Liverpool never said it won't sell Torres to another English club, they said he is not for sale to any club but if there are to sell him, then they never said he had to go abroad, its Torres him self who said will not play for another EPL team .

Alonso to Arsenal could well be happening
regards if Arsenal have interest in Alonso, correct me if i am wrong, wasn't Xabi waiting for the green light to sign for Arsenal when Liverpool were chasing Barry and Rafa made it clear Alonso was not required the only reason this did not happen was due to the fact LFC did not sign Barry and Arsenal did not increase their offer

Liverpool have joined the race with Arsenal and Tottenham to sign teen prodigy Conor Wickham.Liverpool could have a slight edge in the race with Conor Wickham a huge Liverpool fan and he would love to play and train with his idol Fernando Torres{if he stays that is}.

I posted this 6 weeks ago that Liverpool is the most probable destination for Connor Wickham. What you have said is 100% true he is a Liverpool fan and particularly of Torres, but he will not be moving this season. This is partly due to his loyalty to Ipswich (he wants to take them to the Premiership) and also the desire by all concerned parties that he continues to develop out of the spotlight. It is likely however that Ipswich may sign Wickham's mate and England u17 skipper Connor Coady on loan esp. as Liverpool see this as a partnership for the future.

On the subject of Joe Cole, I know it is being done to death but did anyone else pick up on the fact that Robbie Savage mentioned Cole to Spurs in his newspaper column? Does he have an inside track?

As to who will be replacing Vidic, I don't know, but will reiterate Gary Cahill is being closely monitored.

Thats all the transfer business that will be happening at Utd this season, with younger players given the chance to prove themselves accordingly.

All other talk is complete rubish. Trust me.

The Redest Devil

You talk about other posters posting rubbish, but this is the biggest of the lot. Modric not only signed an extension contract he also said he wants to stay at Tottenham. There's no way he's going to United and these days United can't afford him
Do you honestly think Levy would sell him for anything like 20 or 25 million he's always managed to get top dollar off United when players wanted to move, never mind them trying to get a player who doesn't

Xabi Alonso could be on his way to Arsenal. He's not in Mourinhos plans for the future, and Liverpool can't afford to buy him back so Wenger has made a bid. Alonso, along with Subotic and Given, will be Wengers signings this summer. Then Arsenal will win the league! Job done.


bull!

I'm sure Madrid didn't pay liverpool the reported 30m in a lump sum, so should he not be in Jose's plans
then the likeliest club he will be going to is LFC, very similar to the Robbie Keane Deal, Defoe from spurs to pompey and back again etc etc etc. Money doesn't exchange hands! And even if it should it will be an Alonso return and an installment from LFC to madrid, with the sale of Masc it is very possible. Alonso frequents big games at Anfield to watch LFC as he truely loves the club. Please prove me wrong!

 

16 Jul 2010 18:28:13
First of all Gerrard will NOT be leaving. Here is a quote from roy hodgson:
"What we haven't had is a club wanting to buy Steven Gerrard. Steven Gerrard is not for sale I made that clear to him." So he's not leaving.

It is also unlikely that fernando torres will leave due to the fact that
a) Hodgson has spoken with Torres and has said:
"As far as we are concerned he is a Liverpool player and we want him to remain a Liverpool player. He is not for sale and we don't welcome any offers for him." Therefore meaning he isn't for sale.
b) Where would torres go? Not Chelsea or Man City as he has said he would not go to any other premier league club. He won't go to Barcelona because of their debt and they do not need him as they have Messi, Villa, Ibrahimovic and Pedro. The last team who might have been interested was Inter. He won't go because benitez is there.

Mascherano looks like he is on the way out. Hodgson is rumoured to want 1520 mil for him + cambiasso and the out of favour Mancini on loan. However if Barcelona bid, they would bid around 2530 mil for the Argentine and this would probably be accepted by Hodgson.

If Mascherano goes we will see Banega coming in for 810 mil from Valencia as his replacement.

Loic Remy is said to be having a medical at Liverpool tomorrow ahead of a £12.5 million move. This will be the only striker we sign in the transfer window as we will then have Remy, Torres, Jovanovic, N'gog, Pacheco and Kuyt.

We do not need a Left winger as Riera will be staying and is training with the squad in Switzerland. However if he does leave either Jovanovic will play there or there will be a move for Ruiz from FC Twente.

At Left back, it is rumoured that Hodgson is interested in Wayne Bridge. This deal is a possibility as Man City have had an offer accepted for Kolarov. As Insua seems to be leaving to Fiorentina then we will be in the market for a new Left back. Also Hodgson is looking at Wigan's Honduran Left back Maynor Figueroa. And a move for ex red steven Warnock could be on the cards.

Poki (i am not saying this will definately happen as ive not got anyone who i know in the club ) Ed what do you think of my ideas?

Arsenal will sign a goal keeper out of Frey, Handanovic or Machetti. it will probable be Frey because Florentina have signed Boroc. Both Almunia and Fabianski are leaving and Manone will be the number 2. Wenger will sign 1 more defender and that will be Subotic but if that deal cannot be agreed then he will sign Ranocchia. Gallas, Sivestre and Campbell are all leaving. i am not sure if Sagna will leave this year but if he does wenger will out bid Bayern for Van Der Wiel. Melo will sign in a swap deal for Clichy because Gibbs is ready to replace him and Pedro is back from his loan spell Troare is leaving. Cole and Assulin will sign for free. Wenger admires both players and will sign both and Cole will replace Fabregas who will be leaving. younsters arsenal will sign are Erikson, Troare and Wickham. Wickham will sign for arsenal and not spurs because he plays for England u19s and plays upfront with afobe. they play well together and wenger is keen to have that partenership at arsenal. Lukaku is also a posability but will stay at Anderlecht for a season. Ozil and Hazzard will sign in January.

Editor can you settle a dispute for me here. My mate says Man U have made an official enquiry into the availability of Ibrahim Afellay of PSV. I said i hadnt heard anything of the sort but the smug basrd seems to think this is on the cards.
Scary thing is the more i think about it the more it may not be the wrost idea i have ever heard. He's 24, plays across the midfield as an attacking option and won't dent the bank balance to much? heard anything? cheers

Jaymo {editor's note – I haven't heard that, I have been told that the price for Ninis is felt to be too high though. So it may be just an attempt to get Ninis at a lower price, if it is true.}

For REALISTIC ERIC1949 YNWA

I totally agree with you. I think its unfair that someone slammed your opinion, when its clearly a valid point (you only have to look at the managerial appointment to know that there is no money coming in, in the near future). Am an arsenal support and fully advicate your thought's on what some supporters percieve as their god given right. Hopefully Woy can make the best out of what he has, he is the best man for the job, in all fairness. With his guidance Liverpool could bounce back a lot quicker than you think. But all this talk of spending to solve the problem isn't going to happen. Even if a takeover is completed sometime in the near future, I seriously doubt they'll be a business man of sound mind that would plough the amount of money into the club that Liverpool currently need. I wish ppl would stop laying all the blame on H&G surely rafa was more of a problem. Look at the countless bad signing and over inflated price tags you paid. Was it the same rafa who openly pursued Barry when he had a much better player in Alonso. How he's lucked up and got a job with the best team in Europe when he had an abysmal season at pool, amazes me.

Anyway on to my team.
I was touch and go with Cesc leaving. I wanted him to stay but fully respected his decision to go. But it looks as if he staying, happy days.
to the person that wrote this
"I've just heard from a very good source that Arsenal have tied up a major transfer. A very high profile midfield signing (not Joe Cole). Don't want to say who at this stage but if it comes off it will be one of the biggest names arsenal have ever signed."
You need to be more specific. I had heard Alonso whispers but there weren't from reliable sources. But you never know. The person that wrote this "I don't think Arsenal have ever even looked to bring him in" you are wrong. Arsenal made a bid for Alonso during the summer of 2008 on the final day of the transfer window after he was unsettled by the Barry stories. Unfortunately for us, we didn't meet Liverpool's valuation and their was no time to negotiate (AW is so cheap sometimes, its jarring. Silvestre being a purchase on the same day as the Alonso bid is a prime example). We DO need him he isn't explicitly a DM he's a CM full stop. Can you image a midfield of Song, Alonso and Cesc (am smiling just thinking about), but this is a pipe dream. As much as i would like to be rid of Denilson, (not a bad player, BUT he isn't Arsenal quality, like Lucas at Liverpool and he clogging up the bench).

Rumours
Frey in
Diakhate in (is he left or right footed?)

Out
Vela on Loan
Eduardo on Loan (possibly)

All this talk of wilshere going on loan to Bolton depends on Cahill coming in (i seriously doubt it, i'd much prefer Jagielka). With Ramsey injured I'd amazed if AW let him go.

Please note they are rumours not FACT (as everyone seems to like that word on this site)

Man City's signing of 23 year old left back Kolarov will prompt Wayne Bridge to hand in a transfer request with Roy Hodgson poised to snap him up as one of his first signings at Liverpool.
Hodgson is also hoping to negotiate a swap deal involving Ryan Babel and AC Milan striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar whilst he is also monitoring the situation on Louis Remy.
Hodgson is also keeping tabs on Joe Cole despite Tottenham being quite close to snapping him up and Hodgson is also keen on Clint Dempsey.

Just heard from a contact connected to Chelsea that Torres is definitely leaving LFC. You may laugh but this WILL happen. After Hodgson met Torres, Purslow stayed back to discuss the transfer with Torres's agent. The offer is £45M plus add ons (£30M now, £15M over 3 years) with Torres getting £150k/week for 5 years. Should be announced within the next 2 weeks. I support LFC but I'm not really gutted as I think we could do better with the money we get.

Bit of takeover news on Liverpool FC. Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle has declared to Martin Broughton that he is interested in taking over at Liverpool. This comes on the back of his failure to purchase the Golden State Warriors basketball team. His bid of $450m for the Warriors was unsuccessful and Ellison is not prepared to spend much more than that! According to Forbes, Ellison is the #6 richest man in the world, worth $28bn. The only problem i see in this is the fans hatred of the present American ownership.

Transfer Gossip of the HIGHEST quality:

I am certain that Frank Lampard is moving to Real Madrid along with the possibilty of Ashley Cole. The replacements I am not sure, I admit.

As a result of the above, Steven Gerrard is staying at Anfield with Torres awaiting the clubs hierachy to confirm stable progress at the club. Liverpool are pondering the transfers of Loic Remy (Nice) and Arda Turan (Galatasaray). Emiliano Insua WILL leave, Lucas will stay (with a more natural, offensive role assigned).

Tottenham, despite securing a fourth place finish, are struggling to sign good players because of the obvious Manchester City attracting interest and the likes of Liverpool still a huge club. Tottenham will not lose players as far as I am concerned, but the likes of your Toure's and your Silva'sare unlikely. Joe Cole signing seems to be a done deal.

Manchester United are obviously having trouble financially, despite thier universal income, however are still VERY much attracting major talents. I hear the club are DEFINATELY looking to bring in Benzema.

I'm affraid that's all I have for now Nothing concrete i Know!

Most of this you will see confirmed on SkySportsNews very soon.

CELTIC NEWS

The "Aidan McGeady going to Villa" rumour is gathering pace. Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov has publicly encouraged the club to sign his former team mate. Celtic will only be interested in a cash deal i.e. no swap deals and certainly no loan deal. Anything upwards of £7M would be great business and pave the way for a really exciting signing.

Bad news for us Liverpool fans. Acoording to SSN, Fernando Torres refused to commit his future to the club.
This sounds very worrying. Obviously if Fernando was planning on starting the new season while still wearing the LFC shirt, he would of guaranteed Roy that he will still be here come the end of August.
Supposedly Roy had only a short conversation with Fernando. Like why the hell would he fly for 2 straight hours to have a short chat. Surely he could have doing that over the phone. I think Torres made it quite clear to Roy that he don't want to be at LFC next season. Fernando's attitude is absolutely terrible.
He's really starting to annoy me know.
I say lets take 50mil for him and flog him off. His head has been turned by europes elite and he now seems like a completely different person. He's also got a taste of what it feels like to win some silverware after winning the World Cup.
He obviously thinks that Liverpool aint a big enough club for him now. All this b.s he has in his book about wanting to stay at LFC for a long time and how money would never affect his decision making BLAH BLAH BLAH.
I say get rid of him. The whole club does not revolve around this clown. LFC is bigger than this.

SEE YOU LATER NANDO YOU TURNCOAT. LIVERPOOL FC WAS HERE BEFORE YOU CAME AND WILL STILL BE HERE WHEN YOU LEAVE.

Ed i know your probably one of the only people on this site who speaks with some sort of intelligence so i ask, what do you think about these latest developments regarding Fernando? {editor's note I think it is complete and utter rubbish. The betting on him going must have slowed or something for them to put out this complete nonentity of a story and twist it the way they have.}

My opinion on this is he is injured and on holiday. When he gets back from his holiday he will let Liverpool know of any decision about his future. Until this happens everything is just pure speculation by football fans and the press.

I have been saying on this site for a long time, Fabregas isn't going anywhere and Sol Campbell will sign again. Sol Campbell is having talks with Arsenal (If u don't belive me just watch Skysports) and Barcelona havent got the 70million EU Arsenal want for Fabregas.

Thought provoking Celtic News

Ledly is number 16 and Murphy number 27 (celtic fc superstore) despite the rumours Joe would get the number 7 shirt. There is absolutely no way in the world Celtic will start the season without a number 7, this will sound strange to the english teams but the hoops and gers fans will know what i mean and know how high a regard that number is held in, Jinky, King Kenny, Henrik and a restaurant called 'number 7'. Unless Jaurez gets it then it would suggest Celtic have some other players lined up, don't know who but it is a special number in the line up more often than not filled by our main man.

Mario ballotelli will sign for manchester united in around 2 weeks time and with this deal secured gabriel obertan and darron gibson will move to ibrox on a seasons long loan deal

 

16 Jul 2010 17:19:10
Actually this is true!
"I've just heard from a very good source that Arsenal have tied up a major transfer. A very high profile midfield signing (not Joe Cole). Don't want to say who at this stage but if it comes off it will be one of the biggest names arsenal have ever signed."

This is true and it will be Xabi Alonso coming in for 15 million!

Comrades!

@ LFC420 "and i quote from RH (As far as we are concerned he is a Liverpool player and we want him to remain a Liverpool player. He is not for sale and we don't welcome any offers for him)"

I am surprised you do not unsderstand what this means. Basically, if a club puts a player up for sale then if he has a loyalty bonus in his contract (which players of the calibre of Torres invariably do), then the club has to pay it as it is them who are selling the player as opposed to the player asking to be sold. If a player asks to be sold (puts in a transfer request) then they forfeit any loyalty bonus. All this really is is a warning to Torres we're not offering you for sale so if you want to go you ask and as a result lose your loyalty bonus, and a warning to any wouldbe suitors that they are going to have to pay a pretty penny to get their target.

Everyone seems to thionk that if Torres were to go he wouldn't go to a British club however that would only hold true if Liverpool decided to sell him. If he put a transfer request in he will go to whoever meets the clubs asking price and he himself feels is offering the best package and he is most lilkely to win things with.

At the end of the day very few world class players play for any club out of loyalty. The ply their trade for money and glory. Torres will look at whether he thinks he will win major honours at Anfield within the next 2 seasons 3 tops. If he doesn't think they will then he'll go to where he thinks he will win and to be brutally frank he'd be a fool not to.

On the bright side, if he does stay then it means he thinks Liverpool will win major honours very soon and he wants to be part of it.

Liverpool are on the verge of signing French striker Loic Remy on a fiveyear contract for a fee of around £12.5 million [15m],
The 23yearold is expected to travel to Merseyside tomorrow to undergo a medical before joining Roy Hodgson's squad at its training camp in Switzerland, according to sources at Remy's club, Nice.
Liverpool are expected to pay Nice £7.5 million [9m] upfront with the rest to follow in installments

No they are not. If you read what hodgson said at a press conference today it's clear that Remy is not an option.
Quote "He's a player I know very little about. If I am going to be interested in a player I am going to have to watch him playing, study him and make judgments which I have not been able to." Unquote
So stop writing crap.

Yes he has signed. Take a look at www.goal.com it is common knowledge so I guess old Roy is playing the old game. {editor's note – goal.com are not a reliable source, they just peddle rumours like you get on here but there is no one to point out that they are bx.}

RPL:

Xabi Alonso to quit Real Madrid for Arsenal.
He`s not in Mourinhos plans.

I think this is also BULL!

I don't think Arsenal have ever even looked to bring him in (I could be wrong). He would cost a lot more that Arsenal would pay, and we don't need him, IF, and that's a big IF, Cesc leaves Alonso would maybe get into the team, but only as a holding mid!

Only way this would happen is if the deal was for sub £8 million!


Arsenal were very close to signing him a couple of years ago.

Wouldn't be a big surprise if he was Fabregas' replacement.

Makes no odds to me(United Fan), but Arsenal were in for him a few times b4.

Birmingham City rumours? Are we close to signing Moussa Dembele? He would be a quality signing!

 

16 Jul 2010 16:10:14
To all the eager Leeds fans (myself included) there is no substance in Hooper joining Leeds either on the QT or out aloud. The deal is dead as Scthorpe wanted too many clauses, including a huge selling on clause that was not of interest to Mr. Shaun Harvey (more say Ken).

The interest will focus on season long loan signings of fringe Premiership players, subject to Leeds and the other teams doing deals on the salary share.

As for the Joker! who posted that Harry (God Im injured again Kewell) joining as a player / coaching staff member..have you been taking illegal substances? The guy betrayed and financially raped Leeds on his move to Liverpool and did the most dirty trick imaginable in joining Galatasaray after the death of 2 Leeds fans..do you really beleive that this man woul ever be welcome in the perimiters of Yorkshire again? Doh..what a pointless and utterly nonsense posting to make!

Ed, Kyel Reid is the only, er, Kyle/Kyel Reid. He was released by West Ham a few years ago and went to Sheff Utd, now he's been released by them and Sky sports "understands" that he's moving back to Charlton where he spent the last half of last season on loan. {editor's note – my mistake. I listened to a friend of mine who is a West Ham fan, he swore blind that there are two because Kyel is still at the Hammers and they are looking to loan him out. That can put to bed the argument that was on here the other week about how season ticket holders are so much more knowledgeable about their club – he is a season ticket holder and obviously knows bugger all about his club. My apologies, I should not have taken his word for it and double checked.}

Sorry to say your wrong there, hes in the USA with the city squad , saw a picture of him in the US on their website,

Ed, i heard rumours about eagles possibly going to celtic now, could it be true? {editor's note – not got a clue to be honest, I didn't think Lennon was looking for a player to play that position.}

My sources are saying that Paul Sturrock will leave Southend United within the next week if the transfer embargo is not lifted.

Sources close to the league 2 club that Rick Duncan or Paul Furlong ( ex player) will take charge.

Daryl Flavahan is set to return on a 1 year deal but will not be the first choice keeper at roots hall.

Ian Joyce will return.

16 Jul 2010 16:18:20
So eagles knocked us back due to his wage demands. A bit worrying to be honest. He was a player that should be able to tempt to Ibrox, the actual real reason was simple the maximum wages that rangers can possibly offer anyone is 18k a week (this is determined by the bank) we offered him 15k but he wanted 20k. Im only assuming that he has prob been unofficially been quoted this from a prem team (i know u will all say that is tapping up etc. anyone who doesn't think this exists doesn't know the ins ands outs of football!!)

RE: It was not the wages, he did not want to move to Scotland pure and simple. Blackpool have more chance of signing him then any Scotland team.

Re: No it was defo wages trust me. Im pretty good pals with Naisy (Naismith who coincedently was also tapped up during Ian Durrants kids birthday party believe it or not!)

trust me when I tell you that it was wages mate. Also every player at gers who's contract runs up next year is pretty much transfer listed and any offers will be considered.

I still have faith though. Smith genuinly thought there would be no problems in signing Eagles and was pretty impressed with him during training. Pity

i remember we made a bid for him a couple of seasons ago. think it was like £10 but Liverpool wanted £14m. When liverpool wanted to sign Barry. But yeh anyway i agree, no way this is happening.

Comments on below garbage

' 16 Jul 2010 10:26:29
Have received a message via email from a friend in Slovakia watching the Leeds tour, supposedley Gary Hooper is out there with the boys and will be playing in tonight's friendly. This is because Leeds medical staff are all out there, so he has travelled to undergo a medical with the signing completed tomorrow.

In the meantime, he will be playing under the name "Bartholomew Gadsby" so as to keep a low profile.'


In respose to the crp above there is no way that Leeds could be allowed to play Hooper without signing him suppose he got seriously injured who would be liable??

And as for "Bartholomew Gadsby" I suggest the owner of the article takes up fiction writing!!

 

16 Jul 2010 16:24:12
Sorry to correct you editor, but Kyel Reid was released by West Ham in 2009 and joined Sheffield United from there not sure if he still has a contract with them now to be honest, but he hasnt figured for West Ham for many years, but did play in Tony Carr's testimonial recently. {editor's note – don't apologise mate, I would prefer to know when my information is wrong.}

Can't see it frankly. Mourinho loves a quality DM who can distribute the ball and Alonso has been absolutely class for Madrid he's already a firm fan favourite and Mourinho usually keeps the players the fans feel a connection with.

Hi just been confirmed on Safc official website that Daryl Murphy has signed for celtic. All I can say is good luck celtic because this bloke is rubbish. I mean diabolical even at championship level so how he got a move to a club the size of Celtic is beyond me, especially for the fee of £1.3 million! Anyone have any genuine Sunderland rumours as we seem to be keeping our card close to our chests this window

Been down to Oakwell for the season ticket, the ticket office was closed for lunch, so I had a walk around the Mecca.

As I walked round to the east stand, I found the gates were locked, but could see three guys shaking hands with Mark Robbins..it was clear that one of them was Adam Le Fondre.

Barnsley & Rotherham fans alike, get ready for an announcement

 

16 Jul 2010 15:57:49
I'm not sure sure of the veracity of this, but I have heard from someone I know that works behind the scenes at Sky Sports that Roy Hodgeson is interested in bringing in Simon Vukcevic, a Montenegran AM from Sporting Lisbon. As I said, I don't know if it is true, but this guy is not normally a bullsher.

best of luck liverpool!wud really love to see them finish ahead of boasting city&united, though i'm a chelsea fan, ,
DIE HARD BLUE'S FAN {editor's note – I did rumours of Park leaving, but I don't believe them in the slightest. Fergie loves him, he is happy to sit on the bench without ever moaning, gives 100% everytime he plays and is a fantastic marketing aid in the far east. If he goes it will be because United have bought Honda or someone similar. I have always said that I don't believe Chelsea are looking for any kind of marquee signing this season, they are getting prepared for 2012 and the new financial rules. Spending big money on a player will only happen if they sell big too this summer.}

Rumour per evening times in glasgow


Rangers are chasing Australian World Cup star Brett Holman.

SportTimes can today reveal Ibrox manager Walter Smith is attempting to land the attacking midfielder on a seasonlong loan deal from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar. The 26yearold caught the eye at the World Cup Finals in South Africa when he scored Australia's opening goal in their 11 draw with Ghana and then netted a stunning 25yarder against Serbia.

Now Smith is hoping to convince the player to kickstart his club career by moving to the SPL champions after failing to command a regular starting slot in Holland.

It's understood Alkmaar coach DICK ADVOCAAT has already sanctioned the potential loan deal and it will now come down to whether or not Rangers can afford to match the midfielder's £16,000aweek wages.

Holman can play in several positions, including a wide midfield role or as a striker, but he is thought to be at his best when playing as an attacking midfielder.

An Ibrox insider said: "Brett can play in a number of positions and he certainly showed at the World Cup Finals he can perform at the highest level. Talks are ongoing but he is high up on the wanted list."


could be a good 1 if deal can be done.


Dont beleive everything you read in the paper, Advocaat doesn't even manage them anymore, so how could he saction the deal??

Loic remy has signed for Liverpool in an up front fee of 7.5 million with further instamments to total 12.5 million. He is likely to partner Torres up front with Gerrard dropping back into his best position Midfield. All this rubbish about Toores going to Chelsea is BS. Torres will not hand in a transfer request, he is not that kind of man. Mascherano will definitely leave to either Inter or Barcelona but that will not be decided until Barca have given up the Fabregas chase. Why you Gunners want someone to stay that clearly has his heart and mind elsewhere is beyond me. No player is bigger than the club and the level of disrespect he has shown you, should not be forgiven. I have also heard that Birmingham will bid again fir Babel and Reira may well get another chance. I think it is also quite likely we will see one of Wright Phillips or Cole signing. We are the only team that can guarantee them a starting place, but I am with the Editor in that I fell Joe Cole lacks the pace to be a great winger again.

 

16 Jul 2010 15:13:21
"Just heard from a very reliable source(Big involvement in Liverpool), but im not going to risk my job to reveal my source.
that fernando torres is 100% leaving liverpool in the next 3 weeks destination; Chelsea.
Liverpool will replace him with Loic Remy(Hence the reason for the 14m bid announced today)

Mascherano to leave for inter he will be replaced by.Gerrard who will play next season in Central mid with lucas/Aqua.

Joe Cole to be confirmed by 25th July

Thanks
BIG GB"

you should be called BIG BS as and i quote from RH (As far as we are concerned he is a Liverpool player and we want him to remain a Liverpool player. He is not for sale and we don't welcome any offers for him) this was what he said after meeting Torres! and many many times must Torres state he won't join another EPL team

Re this comment: "Hey Ed, looks like LFC are verge on signing one of many the "new Henry" LOIC REMY for £12M. He rejected W Ham, and Spurs but is like many frenchmen, Arsefans. (I watched Sherlock last night, so I figured it out). But my question is, is Remy the answer for LFC?

It seems like he will be the next Ngog or the next Babel.I don't know, I still think £12M its alot. With that money + £13M you have Arda Turan. And play Jovanovic as a backup striker. What do you think ed? {editor's note I really don't know, I haven't seen much of him, just a few clips so I can't judge him at all.}"

Next Babel or Ngog? Please look at his age and comparative scoring record before making inane comments. Also, see Woy's comments about Jovanovic sees him as attacking wide player which fits in with where he mostly been playing. Which makes a striker purchase more important than Arda.

Loic Remy update. IS he or is he not signing?

Roy Hodgson today played down reports that Liverpool are on the verge of signing Nice striker Loic Remy.

The France international has been linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League throughout the summer, but Hodgson has reacted coolly to suggestions he is poised to arrive at Anfield.

"He's a player who was mentioned to me by the scouting department and a player the club were following before I came, " Hodgson told his press conference in Switzerland.

"He's a player I know very little about. If I am going to be interested in a player I am going to have to watch him playing, study him and make judgments which I have not been able to

Torres is wanting out of Liverpool!! 100%

This is so funny, if you overheard him and you werent told direct whats the problem with giving your source? your an idiot im afraid and even if its true whoever wants him is going to have to pay stupid money to get him, as he has 5 years left on his contract!

LFC420


Cannot reveal my "source" as it would get me the sack on the spot!
I overhheard this person talking to another colleague, saying Torres wants to leave 100%!
This does not mean he will be sold. I also haven't mentioned any price whatsoever, so why someone has said about Torres contract is beyond me!

If you overhheard this person talking to another colleague how would they know you gave the source??

Liverpool fc.

All this talk of gerrard, torres and masch leaving is getting so boring now, is it just what liverpool haters want to believe i ask myself!
Take it from me, masch will leave but don't know amount but it won't be less than 25m as correct me if im wrong ed but think we paid 18m when he was unproven at the top level, he has since became the best in his position and captain of a very good national side!
Onto gerrard and torres, Neither of them will leave they both have huge respect for each other and both love liverpool full stop!
Finally we are not skint we still have 15m plus player sales which is more than most clubs have, we can afford wages of 100,000 a week ask glen johnson. And once the club is sold we will be competing at the highest level again, we have had ou low now lets see man u struggle cuz trust me it is just round the corner, would you really of signed owen for free if you didn't have to!

Arsenal with wickham could be another cog in the future invincibles, liverpool are apparently in the race too but they need to invest their money in someone who can produce immediately 8m is a bit much for them for a prospect right now no matter how good. other arsenal transfer dealings: i don't expect to see another defender to come in for over about 8m, no more strikers and in midfield is anyones guess, one player arsenal must buy at any cost is eden hazard, exactly a mix between ronaldo and messi power and speed but the low centre of gravity allows him more movement, imagine this team in about 6 years time even without hazard its potential is amazing

Now Sunderland rumours

Welbeck one year loan from Man Utd
Upson 6m West Ham
Hutton loan from Spurs (this to happen later in the window)
N'Zogbia Wigan (this allows Richardson to play left back)
And also possibly another loan for a keeper or David James on a free down to the injury to Gordon who is to be out for up to 3 weeks with a broken arm

Why would sign Hutton when we have AlMuhamadi and Angeleri who are both Right Backs that we would have 3 Right backs and 1 recognised left back

Kyle the Sheff UTD player that's just released from his contract and tipped for a move back down south. {editor's note – ah ok, I don't know about him, but I know the Hammers have been looking for someone to give Kyel Reid a run in the first team next season.}

Jose Mourinho to make bids for three big premier stars..3OM for Ashley Cole, 2OM for Steven Gerard and 25M for Vidic, He also wants 30M Maicon from Inter.
Surplus at Madrid with agents trying to find new clubs are Drenthe linked with Liverpool.
Lassana Diarra linked with Juventus.
Guti looks certain to go to the UAE.
Van der Vaart linked with Liverpool & Wolfsburg. Raul Blackburn, but more likely big pay day in the MLS.

Xabi Alonso to quit Real Madrid for Arsenal.
He`s not in Mourinhos plans.

I think this is also BULL!

I don't think Arsenal have ever even looked to bring him in (I could be wrong). He would cost a lot more that Arsenal would pay, and we don't need him, IF, and that's a big IF, Cesc leaves Alonso would maybe get into the team, but only as a holding mid!

Only way this would happen is if the deal was for sub £8 million!

 

16 Jul 2010 14:41:37
I've just heard from a very good source that Arsenal have tied up a major transfer. A very high profile midfield signing (not Joe Cole). Don't want to say who at this stage but if it comes off it will be one of the biggest names arsenal have ever signed.

I previously posted here some information I had from an informed source.

Theo Walcott to Liverpool as a straight swap for Pepe Reina. This offer was put on the table by Roy Hodgson as a counter proposal to Arsenal's offer of £16 million cash ( and turned down flat by Rafa Benitez). I was also told that this was the reason why Arsenal had stalled on the Mark Schwazer deal.

I've now heard that Theo Walcott has been pulled from the squad against Barnet in the first preseason friendly! Is this a case of putting two and two together and making five??

Editor. what do you think? {editor's note I think there is absolutely no chance of Reina being sold right now.}

Is this the same Theo Walcott that's listed in Arsenal's 22 man squad for the Barnet match tomorrow? Arsenal released the squad a short time ago, and Walcott is listed as playing.

Just to note Your grans hairdresser's younger sister who can't find either Islington or Liverpool on a map does not qualify as an "informed source".

To this person! what is the point in posting on here and saying something like that. tell us who it is or don't bother posting. it is a rumour site if you hadn't noticed.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I'm not the original poster. But I did hear a rumour the other day that Arsenal are in negotiations with Roma over the £24m (or 17m + Denilson or Eboue) transfer of Daniele De Rossi. Personally I immediately dismissed the rumour as being ridiculous but maybe this is the player mentioned? I don't think we'd sign him or spend that sort of money on a single player and haven't heard anything from any of my official sources.

In the know (usually)

 

16 Jul 2010 14:25:37
ED, is it true 3 players from man city will sign for liverpool in the next week, these players being bridge £5mil, santa cruz £15mil, and wrightphillips £7mil, and finally mascherano straight swap for balotelli. {editor's note – not as far as I know.}

Torres has asked to be placed on the transfer list , he want to leave. liverpool close in on klose deal, next week and its done. Gerrard is staying, he has made this clear.

Chelsea ready to sign sergio aguero £30 mil mark.

man u are trying to get ozil or Khedira, just enquiring, but a high possibliltiy.

Ars FC are only going to to sign 1 player.Fabregas is definatley staying put this year, he is wanting to go, but barca are not paying the 40 mil for him and will wait until next year.

Manchester United

Guy's, can you please stop posting rubbish on here about MUFC?

I've told you all previously that Fergie wants 1 or possibly 2 players when, not if, Vidic goes to Real Madrid.

Modic will be signed, trust me 20 to 25 million is the agreed price. All this talk about him signing a new 5 year contract at Spurs is right, however there are several clauses in the contract that can easily be triggered accordingly, hence the value of the bid. Why else do you think Harry is so keen to snap up Joe Cole. Simple common sense support this. Lennon on then right, Bale on the Left with Joe Cole playing more centrally, hence his recent remarks reffering to his desire to play in a more central role.

As to who will be replacing Vidic, I don't know, but will reiterate Gary Cahill is being closely monitored.

Thats all the transfer business that will be happening at Utd this season, with younger players given the chance to prove themselves accordingly.

All other talk is complete rubish. Trust me.

The Redest Devil"

Why would we trust YOU?? who are you?

To be honest it was SAF who said that he would be signing 1 or 2. don't need you to claim that you came up with that all by yourself. Go back into your lear and pretend you're some one important!

Why would we want Gary Cahill?? No offence to him but there are 100's of better defenders for the same price or less (given that he is english, overrated and more than likely completely overpriced!)

I think if he does by someone for the AM role, it'll be for cheaper than £20m and i'd prefer he looked at DM first! I think Anderson, when fit, should be put in the AM position! just give him freedom to do what he wants! just a personal opinion!

This Rumour is comple rubbish..if spurs were going to sell modric it would be for a cash deal..there is no way harry redknapp would want a lazy overated player in his team..oh and also have you seen the clauses in modrics contract that was only signed a month a go?? and also if modric wanted to leave why would he sign a contract a month ago..it doesn't make sense, therefore this rumour doesn't make sense. Editor have you heard anything of this?? {editor's note – I was told that the new contract was signed to warn off United.}

According to Brazilian newspaper Terra Magazine and their journalist Luciano Borges, Liverpool are interested in Wolfsburgcaptain Jose. Rumours said the negotiation with the player himself has taken place, and it remains to see wether Liverpool and Wolfsburg can agree. The 30 year old is valued 6 m, and his contract expires in 2012. The defensive midfielder played 52 mins for Brazil during the World Cup.

The Serbian striker that plays in Germany could be Subotic, lived there since he was six. Would be nice to see him at Celtic but can't see it."

Is this by any chance the same Serbian striker who plays CB for Dortmund?

NO! I think he's referring to Danijel Subotic who is actually Bosnian and not Serbian (Don't get those two confused!). Although he has represented Switzerland at U21 level. He's not been playing in Germany though, he's been on loan in Belgium at Waregem (contracted to Portsmouth since 08). I'd say he's within Celtic's budget (less than £500k) although i wouldn't get overexcited. The lad made just 7 first team appearances and only scored one goal!

I just overheard my mate at the bar saying torres wants to stay. So where does that leave us, other than both of what we heard being utter bollocks made up by someone with absolutely zero connections to said player?

As for Plymouth, well I haven't really heard much there either, just a few freebies they want to look at, I am trying to get a list together from the agents of which freebies have been offered trials where.}

To the person who said this.
Young Aiden McGeady has left the Hoops, Sidwell + 7m, you heard it here first, will be announced within the coming days. On an other Celtic matter why on earth would Celtic be interested in signing Murphy from Sunderland who has an obismal scoring record when we could be signing young Anthony Stokes.

Sorry mate, firstly i doubt Sidwell would come in, i think he's a decent player and all, but our centre midfeilders are strong, I think Sidwell would block the devolpment of 'Dave' and Crosas, so doubt it.

Also Hibs have apparently slapped a £34 million price tag on Stokes, considering he was probably the best striker, if not round about, in the SPL last season.

So eagles knocked us back due to his wage demands. A bit worrying to be honest. He was a player that should be able to tempt to Ibrox, the actual real reason was simple the maximum wages that rangers can possibly offer anyone is 18k a week (this is determined by the bank) we offered him 15k but he wanted 20k. Im only assuming that he has prob been unofficially been quoted this from a prem team (i know u will all say that is tapping up etc. anyone who doesn't think this exists doesn't know the ins ands outs of football!!)

Holman is being targetted on loan, my opinion is he aint good enough he plays in a position we don't need to strengthen. We need two wingers (out and out wingers) not players that players than can "cope" there. we need a striker regardless of what Smith says in the papers he knows this as well.

There is still a long way to go in the market but I know for a fact that Smith is pretty dissapointed about Eagles as he knew he could make a profit outta him and was convinced he would sign.

ah well, I still don't wanna make any predictions about the league till the window shuts.

A word of warning tho to the tic fans beware of Braga, they are a far better team than a lot of you will originally think. The portuguese league is stronger than ours, financially and quality wise. They finished 2nd last year ahead of Porto and Sporting, already have a strong organised team. Celtics first competitive game of the season will be away to them. Id think Celtic will be ok at home but overall i feel there chances are pretty much 50/50.

I played in the match to which is being referenced in the Glasgow Sunday league the other player was a clyde player, big Stevie O (can't even spell his second name lol) but he's been kicked into touch and now plays for amatuer saturday team.

In response to "Any news on Coventry City?
Any truth in Martin Craine going to Norwich?"

Coventry haven't received any bids for Martin Cranie. He has also played in the preseason friendlies at the exact time that he was supposedly 'in talks' with Norwich. Just pure speculation. The only further departure from the Sky Blue this term will be Westwood, depending on whether he renews his contract by the end of the window.

In other news, Aidy Boothroyd will take one more look at trialists Orlando Smeekes and Kevin Elegaard in the friendly against Hinckley Utd. Expect the two players to sign contracts barring anything extraordinary happening.

Delph + Sidwell + Cash for McGeady?

Delph is worth more than McGeady alone. He's also one of the best up and coming prospects England has and Villa would never get rid of him. Hugely doubt he'd go to Celtic to begin with.

And he's currently got a long term injury and won't be back before Xmas!

Heskey + 6m for McGeady is more likely


Actually mate it 10m + McGeady.
And Delph isn't worth more than McCgeady.

Celtic info.. Lenny know's Aiden is on his way out & will use the fee to bolster the team so he won't splash all of it on Keane or Bellamy as he thinks we need more stregnth in depth than a marque signing. Keane's going to Villa & Bellamy's a def possibility on loan as wages freed up from Boruc will help.

Lenny wants Bellamy in soon as Spurs are interested, although Bellamy has said he'll only leave Mcfc for us or Cardiff.

We need 2 full backs, 2 midfielders and 2 strikers as a bear minimum {editor's note – I haven't heard anything from Villa this close season, but I am guessing MON will do his usual – pay over the odds for players who aren't really good enough but then get them to play better than they would normally be capable of.}

Looks like Chelsea will be signing only a few players this summer. And it seems ancelotti is only filling in the deadwood he's thrown out.

AGUERO look like he will make the switch Public praise for Chelsea, admitting he wants to play around the likes of Dagba and Lampard.

Benayoun done deal. replacement for Joe Cole.

Looks like ancelotti is in the market for a creative midfielder too. One of Sneijder/Ozil/Schweinstieger. In for old boy Ballack.

The signing of Torres probably won't happen. No doubt, a unique talent, but very injury prone. Just look at what Ancelotti thinks of injury prone players Joe Cole.

Kaka is probably the longest shot of them all, Ancelotti admitting he would love to see him at Stamford Bridge, but knows that Mourinho will want a player plus cash (Ashley Cole) and Ancelotti would rather have Cole than Kaka. However if Cole chooses to go to Real Madrid, the chances of Kaka coming to SW6 looks more promising.

These aren't facts, just thoughts of a blues fan!

Danny Latza and Hristian Popov are on trial with Leeds United in Slovakia, and there's a chance they could play anonymously in their friendly against MFK Kosice tonight.

Gary Hooper has told Scthorpe he wants to stay.

Chris Riggott, Robert Koren and Daryl Russell have all been offered contracts. The bulk of Grayson's transfer budget is going to be spent on David Nugent.

 

16 Jul 2010 13:14:24
I am sick of rumours about United signing Suarez, this is purely paper talk. He is seriously over rated and Fergie would risk spending that much money on an unproven player, Fergie is only looking at 2 players from the World Cup.

Bastian Schweinsteiger
Arjen Robben

No point me saying how much they would cost as I havent got a clue, may involve cash & players but I don't know. I support Everton so I don't really give a monkeys about United.

Rumour per evening times in glasgow


Rangers are chasing Australian World Cup star Brett Holman.

SportTimes can today reveal Ibrox manager Walter Smith is attempting to land the attacking midfielder on a seasonlong loan deal from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar. The 26yearold caught the eye at the World Cup Finals in South Africa when he scored Australia's opening goal in their 11 draw with Ghana and then netted a stunning 25yarder against Serbia.

Now Smith is hoping to convince the player to kickstart his club career by moving to the SPL champions after failing to command a regular starting slot in Holland.

It's understood Alkmaar coach Dick Advocaat has already sanctioned the potential loan deal and it will now come down to whether or not Rangers can afford to match the midfielder's £16,000aweek wages.

Holman can play in several positions, including a wide midfield role or as a striker, but he is thought to be at his best when playing as an attacking midfielder.

An Ibrox insider said: "Brett can play in a number of positions and he certainly showed at the World Cup Finals he can perform at the highest level. Talks are ongoing but he is high up on the wanted list."


could be a good 1 if deal can be done..

 

16 Jul 2010 12:53:50
Keep reading about Remy joining Liverpool, can you shed any light on this ed? His agent says that he's the next Henry but is there anyone who watches the French league and can comment on him? {editor's note – all I know is that there is definite interest there and, on paper, he looks a good signing. But I have never seen him play other than clips.}

Ipswichs garvan to sign with peter reids argyle probably for a fee in excess of 300k.

 

16 Jul 2010 12:47:54
I've just heard from a very good source that Arsenal have tied up a major transfer. A very high profile midfield signing (not Joe Cole). Don't want to say who at this stage but if it comes off it will be one of the biggest names arsenal have ever signed.

 

16 Jul 2010 12:48:33
To the person who said this..
Young Aiden McGeady has left the Hoops, Sidwell + 7m, you heard it here first, will be announced within the coming days. On an other Celtic matter why on earth would Celtic be interested in signing Murphy from Sunderland who has an obismal scoring record when we could be signing young Anthony Stokes. Am I missing something, he is younger, would be on par in transfer fee's and weekly wage would be less + he is a proven goal scorer. If anyone disagrees with mu argument let me know.
I also here Rangers are trying to persuade Gattuso however he has knocked back there latest offer a fish super and deep fried mars bar for the chance of playing EPL with West Ham. Robert Rigby will not be joining Stke, the Aussie had a medical however didn't fair to well in the skin fold test.

I agree Murphy has quite a shocking goalscoring record, but so did Stokes when he was at Sunderland and now he is apparently a world beater in Scotland. Murphy would probably chip in with a few but to be honest I don't rate him either.

Now Sunderland rumours

Welbeck one year loan from Man Utd
Upson 6m West Ham
Hutton loan from Spurs (this to happen later in the window)
N'Zogbia Wigan (this allows Richardson to play left back)
And also possibly another loan for a keeper or David James on a free down to the injury to Gordon who is to be out for up to 3 weeks with a broken arm

Oh one last thing, Sunderland will never sell Cattermole. Bruce rates him far too highly and he could be in the running for captains armband now that Cana was sold.

The bitter war between CEO Simon Clegg and manager Roy Keane shows no sign of coming to an end soon. Clegg and hoped Keane would walk if starved of resources, but Keane has dug his heels in and will stay unless sacked (and compensated).

Ipswich, who finished 15th last season, have lost several players including fans player of the year Jack Colback and Liam Rosenior. They have publicly made 8 first team squad players available for sale including the disappointing Lee Martin whom they paid just short of 2m for only a year ago.

They along with Portsmouth are the only championship teams to have brought in no new players

Gojko Kačar may well be the Serbian player Celtic are looking at who currently plies his trade in Germany. At 23 would go straight into the first team squad. Looks like the Darryl Murphy deal is all but completed, but Lennon has stated that he will look at another striker and goalkeeper.

With regards to Islam Feruz having "lost his way" at Celtic. I play in an amateur league in Glasgow and Islam Feruz and some other guy who im told plays for Clyde were caught playing for a team in the league. The teams managers etc have been banned for 2 years, I've no idea whats happening to Feruz or the other player but the rumour going around is that they're getting away with it although i'd bet that Celtic are not happy and there will be some sort of repercussions for him.


SPOT ON MATE BUT THE OTHER GUY PLAYS FOR CELTIC TO HIS NAME IS FRANKIE KAMENI

 

16 Jul 2010 11:46:26
Plymouth boss Peter Reid has said expect more players to go, as the cull of argyles useless players due to foot in the mouth disease continues. Reid is looking for quality passing players, as currently Argyle only have players competing to see who can kick it as hard as they can. Home parks new pitch includes rugby posts so are they training them up for other money making opportunities. Reid is looking at Capaldi on trial, plus anton peterlin on trial, what he realy wants though are 2 passing midfielders, Reid will likely tell the board to get their chequebooks out as a necessity to avoid another torturous season. My bets David Norris from Ipswich, and Jason Koumas on a free. This is pure reading between the lines, probably the best way.

 

16 Jul 2010 11:18:00
Have heard from a reliable source that liverpool have made an enquiry as to the availabillity of wayne bridge and were told offers in the region of 7.5 mil would be considered.

The United rumours are absolutley flying around at the moment but the only one's that seem to add up are the Lahm rumour involving either Park or Berba and cash, and the Balotelli rumour. An attacking midfielder is an absolute priority though.

The rumour I have heard is one involving mesut ozil again, this has come about since the Bremen chairman has accepted that a decent offer coupled with the player wanting to go could lead to a sale this summer. He would totally reinvogorate the United midfield. The idea that Fergie has set himself an arbitrary limit of 1 signing is total rubbish, if the right players are available then United will spend!

He was off to Spain in some sort of exchange deal but Spurs offered hard cash and Utd took it.

the same berbatov who is in USA with man united doing pre season training

The Serbian striker that plays in Germany could be Subotic, lived there since he was six. Would be nice to see him at Celtic but can't see it. Loic Remy rumour to Liverpool is picking up a head of steam.


Subotic is a defender you empty head.

 

16 Jul 2010 11:14:26
Regarding West Ham. We are supposed to announce atleast one signing today which the board has described as an 'exciting' new signing.

The Barrera deal is almost done, we are still waiting on a work permit for him and then the deal is done.

Looks like we will sign Piquionne (spelling) on a deal worth £1million with a wage of £40k per week.

The Lolic Remy deal is hung in the air at the moment. West Ham have reached a stublimg block as they want to pay Nice the £13million over a period of three to four years, Nice want it all within 6 months.

We probably won't sign Tal Ben Haim as his wage demands are too high. The owners are refusing to meet his wages that he is on at Portsmouth. However, we look like we may be signing K.P.Boateng before the season starts.

News ive got from Goodison is Everton will tie up the contracts of Pienaar and Arteta. Yobo and Yak will ONLY leave if Everton get the money they are after £7m for Yobo and £8.5m for Yak if not they will be staying.

Moyes is still very much after Ben Arfa and trying to get Banega on loan with a view to signing him for £10m but doubt this will happen cause Valencia want money now. Everton will def bring in a left back on loan before the transfer deadline.

 

16 Jul 2010 10:43:03
Ed any truth that PNE will complete the signing of 3 players today 1 appears to be in the bag Carl Dickinson from stoke but who are the other 2? {editor's note – I believe the other 2 are free agents, but that was all I was told. The person I asked wasn't too sure either to be honest, he only seemed to think Dickinson was definitely signing.}

 

16 Jul 2010 10:49:19
Manchester United

Guy's, can you please stop posting rubbish on here about MUFC?

I've told you all previously that Fergie wants 1 or possibly 2 players when, not if, Vidic goes to Real Madrid.

Modic will be signed, trust me 20 to 25 million is the agreed price. All this talk about him signing a new 5 year contract at Spurs is right, however there are several clauses in the contract that can easily be triggered accordingly, hence the value of the bid. Why else do you think Harry is so keen to snap up Joe Cole. Simple common sense support this. Lennon on then right, Bale on the Left with Joe Cole playing more centrally, hence his recent remarks reffering to his desire to play in a more central role.

As to who will be replacing Vidic, I don't know, but will reiterate Gary Cahill is being closely monitored.

Thats all the transfer business that will be happening at Utd this season, with younger players given the chance to prove themselves accordingly.

All other talk is complete rubish. Trust me.

REALLY?? THE FACT YOU SAY YOU OVERHEARD "YOUR SOURCE" BUT CAN'T REVEAL WHO IT IS SUGGESTS YOU HAVE TAKEN MINDLESS GOSSIP FROM OFF THE STREET AND, AS IS OFTEN THE CASE, ASSUMED IT TO BE FACT.

THE TERM "SOURCE" SHOULD BE USED TO DETAIL A CREDIBLE AND RELIABLE REFERNCE OF INFORMATION. TOO MANY PEOPLE ON THIS SITE REFER TO PEOPLE ON THE STREET, OVERHEARD CONVERSATIONS AND MINDLESS BANTER AS SOURCES TO ADD WEIGHT TO OTHERWISE POINTLESS RUMOUR.

WE'LL KNOW WHAT TORRES WANTS TO DO WHEN WE ARE TOLD, NOT BEFORE AND CERTAINLY NOT THROUGH RUBBISH RUMOUR MILLS LIKE YOURS!

ANOTHER THING, I WAS BORED, SO THOUGHT I'D ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF "FACTS". THERE ARE A LOT OF THEM POSTED ON THIS SITE AND NONE OF THEM EVER SEEM TO COME OFF. THOUGHT, THEREFORE THAT I'D REMIND EVERYONE OF WHAT DEFINES A FACT:

HERE GOES..

1. AN EVENT OR THING KNOWN TO HAVE HAPPENED OR EXISTED
2. A TRUTH VERIFIABLE FROM EXPERIENCE OR OBSERVATION

THERE ARE PLENTY MORE, BUT FOR THE PURPOSE OF MAKING A POINT, THIS SHOULD DO FOR NOW.

SO, BEFORE ANY MORE "FACTS" ARE POSTED, PLEASE LOOK AGAIN TO DECIDE IF IT IS FACT OR IF, AS IS MORE OFTEN THAT CASE, IT SHOULD BE DEFINED AS FABRICATION, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS A "LIE".

The Voice mentioned at 16 Jul 2010 08:46:43:

"City offer AC Milan Robinho and cash, believed to be in the region of 25mil for Alexandrre Pato."

I have heard nothing about this proposal at all – but it does seem entirely plausible. AC Milan would like Robinho to replace Ronaldinho and this has been known for a number of weeks.

However, I understand that Milan would have a preference to take Robinho on loan for the first season and then buy the player. They are very keen to see what sponsorship could be bought to the club by Robinho as they are concerned that Ronaldinho leaving is going to have a financial impact.

I would guess that a loan would not suit Manchester City – but a deal based on Robinho and cash to try and lure Pato away from Milan would seem like something City may think is viable. Somehow I doubt AC Milan would accept it, but I think an offer such as this could well be made. Interesting.

Have received a message via email from a friend in Slovakia watching the Leeds tour, supposedley Gary Hooper is out there with the boys and will be playing in tonight's friendly. This is because Leeds medical staff are all out there, so he has travelled to undergo a medical with the signing completed tomorrow.

In the meantime, he will be playing under the name "Bartholomew Gadsby" so as to keep a low profile.

To all the liverpool fans claiming you will sign Taye Taiwo This won't happen as he had agreed personal terms with Manchester city in January only for the transfer to fall through due to him not recieving a work permit!

I posted two days ago that Robinio will be joining United on a 12 month loan with option to buy. This has now be stopped by the city board as they fear he will turn it on at Old Trafford. Fergie is turning his attention to Modric with a swap of berbatov and 6 million. Vidic is definatly on his way to Real Madrid, with Benzema and 5 million coming to United. The other player coming in is Stephen ireland for 9 million. I am sorry if i misled people on the Robinio move, but 48 hours ago it was definatly on the cards.

Editor do you have any west ham news today? We are suppose to reveal some singings by tomorrow lastest, do you have any clue who they are. Barrera i am sure is one but who are the others? We have been linked with benhraim, neymar, riquelme, remy, piquionne and even joe cole. Do you have any clue what so ever if it is any of these players? {editor's note – I thought Barrera was signed and sealed already? It is listed as a done deal on all the sites. Piquionne looks to be another one, along with Ben–Haim (though I am not sure people are just assuming the Ben–Haim move because it is Grant in charge).}

 

16 Jul 2010 09:36:56
Loic Remy looks add on to join Liverpool. A friend of mine runs a small magazine for English speaking expats out in the Cote D'Azure (of which Nice is part) and spends alot of time around the club. He told me about the bid yesterday and it is common knowledge that Remy would chose Anfield. It is just up to the clubs to agree the fee now but the player wants the move so Nice are likely to accept. This will facilitate West Broms' loan move for Babel. My friend also told me that initial enquiries have been amde by LFC for Taiwo at Marseille. I've also heard that Hodgson is interested in Bridge for th LB position but Man City are using it as leverage to talk to Torres. If Torres tells Hodgson he is definitely staying expect talks to progress for Bridge. The well publicised offer for Joe Cole is still on the tabkle with the player new deciding his next move

There will be no announcement on the 15th/16th or 17th or in the near future.

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.

As I've said before the Yanks are not involved in the sale!! So please people stop posting rubbish saying hicks is holding out for more money etc. I can confirm a bid has been recieved from the middle east, and they expect to shortly receive one from the far east. To be honest though, there is very little info leaking out of the club. For a journo and LFC fan this is FRUSTRATING. Everything else I've been told is specualtive at this stage at best.

Southampton are preparing to offer out of contract Degenham and Redbridge midfielder Harlee Dean. Dean is on trial with Southampton and is currently training with the reserves. The 18 year old scored on his debut against Winchester City. Dubbed as a future star Dean spent a chunk of last season on loan at Grays Athletic, impressing The Dagenham manager enough to be offered a contract, but Dean has stated his desire to join Southampton. Saints would have to try and agree a fee for Dean with the daggers otherwise the fee could be settled by a tribunal.

Southampton are also apparently keen on signing former Wycombe keeper Scott Shearer on a one year contract, proably as backup to Kelvin Davis. Shearer is a free agent after being released by Wycombe on July 1st 2010.

Heard a rumour that Celtic are now after Eagles (they have form Loovens, Brown, Hartley, etc)

He does not want to move that far up north, so he will not be moving to Celtic.

 

16 Jul 2010 09:01:17
Eagles to complete a move to Celtic by the end of today! His agent has already thrashed out a deal rumoured to be in the region of 18k a week plus bonuses, McGeady transfer to be completed by the week end leading to Celtic capturing Keane with the money free'd up by the departure of big earners McGeady and Boruc.

"I know this isn't really going to shed any light onto the issue, but my friend saw Joe Cole at an airport in Magaluf and he told him that it's a 3 way split between Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal, and that he hasn't got a clue who he's going to sign for at the moment."

Delph + Sidwell + Cash for McGeady?

Delph is worth more than McGeady alone. He's also one of the best up and coming prospects England has and Villa would never get rid of him. Hugely doubt he'd go to Celtic to begin with.

And he's currently got a long term injury and won't be back before Xmas!

Heskey + 6m for McGeady is more likely.

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."

Who do you know @ Preston?

 

16 Jul 2010 08:55:09
With regards to Islam Feruz having "lost his way" at Celtic. I play in an amateur league in Glasgow and Islam Feruz and some other guy who im told plays for Clyde were caught playing for a team in the league. The teams managers etc have been banned for 2 years, I've no idea whats happening to Feruz or the other player but the rumour going around is that they're getting away with it although i'd bet that Celtic are not happy and there will be some sort of repercussions for him.

Young Aiden McGeady has left the Hoops, Sidwell + 7m, you heard it here first, will be announced within the coming days. On an other Celticmatter why on earth would Celtic be interested in signing Murphy from Sunderland who has an obismal scoring record when we could be signing young Anthony Stokes. Am I missing something, he is younger, would be on par in transfer fee's and weekly wage would be less + he is a proven goal scorer. If anyone disagrees with mu argument let me know.
I also here Rangers are trying to persuade Gattuso however he has knocked back there latest offer a fish super and deep fried mars bar for the chance of playing EPL with West Ham. Robert Rigby will not be joining Stke, the Aussie had a medical however didn't fair to well in the skin fold test.

Hello, back from yesterday.

First port of call, Fernando Torres. The guy is Champions League quality, which he won't be competing in this year. There are three clubs rumoured to be interested, Chelsea, Manchester City and Barcelona, with staying at liverpool another option. Barcelona, I don't think they will fork out the money, they do have David Villa as well as Ibrahimovic. manchester city, I think you can shake it off too, in all honesty, don't be surprised if Manchester land Didier Drogba. yes I know silly, but the money offered by Man City is silly, and for a 32 year old going on 33. If I was Chelsea I would accept it, and fo for Torres. Staying at liverpool is also reasonable, he could give Roy and the Kop one more year.

Now on to my pride and joy, Newcastle. Steve Harper I believe is off to celtic, this leaves the door open for Newcastle. David James looks more and more likely leaving Pompey, with Fulham chasing his signature, Newcastle could take a look at him. I am tossing a name up here don't shoot me down, Shay Given, did leave Newcastle, and could return as joe Hart will be a rival for the goalkeeper spot, and could land with him.

Just one last point, Ed, Joe Cole is being a greedy little thing, I mean the figures being reported, first that he wants to be on par with Gerrard on wages at Liverpool, and just the wages being reported, it has got to a stage where nobody cares now, pick a clkub and shut up.

Thankyou

B_Mac I don't know anybody, just common sense

Celtic rumour
Heard from my old bhoy who is paly with a celtic director that Mcgeady is on the move. Both Brum clubs are sniffing about with Birmingham danglin Mcfadden plus cash as a carrot. This could add up as both Mcgeady and Mcfadden did not go on pre season tours Mcgeady with a "thigh strain" and Mcfadden's mrs has just had a kid (homesick possibly??) not sure though. He also said they are trying to secure a decent striker and centre half with a few of each on their radar. Bellamy is a possability if the free up some cash with Mcgeady and also since they have reduced the wage bill with Artur leaving.

CELTIC NEWS

Celtic have completed the signing of Sunderlands Irish international striker Daryl Murph. Murphy passed his medical on Thurs evening and will soon join the rest of the squad. Big, strong striker should do well in SPL.

Another Rep Irelend player interesting Lennon is Coventry's 'keeper Keiran Westwood. Preston's Andy Lonergan (former Eng under 21) is another possible replacement for Artur Boruc.

Efrain Jaurez is a done deal. The club cannot confirm it officially until he has passed his medical which will take place in the states once he has obtained a visa. Fantastic signing.

I am led to believe that Johan Miallby holds Jos Hooiveld in high regard and has persauded Lennon to give him a crack as first choice center half rather than offering Sol Cambell a lucrative deal.

M.O.

Man Utd Rumours

I'm afraid to say Fergie will not be spending much this summer. and if I'm honest he dosn't really need to. He has already signed a great youngster (Hernandez) he only really needs another striker because Berbatov can't play in the utd system.

some options would be, Suarez (Ajax), Balotelli (Inter) or perhaps Benzema. Suarez has said that the only premier leauge club he will join is Man Utd.

Outs:

All the rumours of Vidic and Evra leaving are rubbish! and why would they want to leave anyway??

I'm certain Berbatov will be leaving this summer perhaps in a part exchange.

Van Der Sar, Giggs, Neville and Scholes all to retire at the end of this season.

Lineup:
Van Der Sar
(Nevillle/Rafael) Vidic (Ferdinand/Evans) Evra
Valencia (Fletcher/Carrick/Scholes) (Nani/Giggs)
Rooney Hernadez/New Striker

This season belongs to Utd, DREAM ON CITY!

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.

REALISTIC ERIC1949 YNWA

I totally agree with you pal some LFC fans are so deluded, some of the players supposedly joining LFC will never happen, the only rumours i've heard are Steven Warnnock and Garath Barry could be heading to Anfield or Barry will be keeping the bench warm at Eastlands.
Keep the rumours realistic people!!!

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.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Slight difference between Fabregas and Silva! Fabregas signed a new contract last season which keeps him at the club for another 5 yrs. Arsenal are not in a financial predicament and do not need to sell their captain to stay afloat. Silva was nearing the end of his contract and Valencia were desperate for the money hence the deal being £24m! Valencia had to sell both Silva and Villa this summer or they knew they would lose the players on Bosman's as they weren't going to sign contract extensions. I'm an Arsenal fan and I don't justify Fabregas (or any other player) being worth £40m, but to suggest he's a 'benchwarmer' is a childish statement that reeks of jealousy and bitterness. He would walk into the first team of most clubs, but both Barca and Spain have an embarrassment of riches right now. So if Ronaldo was worth £70m and Kaka £55m, then yes given the overinflated fees, Arsenal are quite right to demand the money they are looking for. You need to look at the bigger picture its not just what Cesc does on the pitch its also down to marketing the club, shirt sales, sponsors etc. A deal to take him to Camp Nou won't happen this summer. The 2 clubs are miles apart in their valuations and while Cesc is a luxury in the current Barca side, he's a necessity in the current Arsenal side. Wenger has to be the most stubborn Manager to do business with and once he's got his teeth into something he won't let go. Barca have gone about the whole episode completely the wrong way and even with their refinancing complete it still won't be enough to convince Wenger to let him go at this late stage of the summer.

PS) Loic Remy to West Ham £12m? Doubt it pal, Wenger enquired about him last season and was told to start bidding at £16m, he ended his interest despite Remy claiming "Arsenal are a club that makes me dream". Remy is highly regarded as a big future talent in France A) West Ham couldn't afford him transfer or wages B) He wouldn't move to a side that will be battling relegation C) He will be looking for at the very least a Europa League side to join as he has the opportunity now to break into the French National team and become a regular (given that Henry and Anelka won't play for Les Bleus any longer and Gignac did very little to convince!)

 

16 Jul 2010 00:01:45
Heard from a friend of mine who knew about Man City's attempt to sign Kaka that Liverpool FC have asked about a number of Man City's home nation players. Man City have rebuffed LFC simply saying if you want to make offers on any of them let us talk to Torres first. Hodgson will fly out to ask Torres if he wants to be a LFC player next year. Expect news on Torres future to be announced either way late next week.

Delph + Sidwell + Cash for McGeady?

Delph is worth more than McGeady alone. He's also one of the best up and coming prospects England has and Villa would never get rid of him. Hugely doubt he'd go to Celtic to begin with.

 

15 Jul 2010 23:48:30
Norwich City haven't quite finished with their transfer dealings for the summer! Have heard from an explayer who is currently a scout that a fee of £350,000 has been agreed to bring Martin Craine to the club from Coventry.
Also, expect Dagenham & Redbridge winger Danny Green to sign as he has been to have a look around the club today with the chief executive. Have no idea of the fee on this one though.

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.}

it is nice that have announced this evening that liverpool, spurs and west ham have all bid £12million for loic remy, with himself announcing he would 'obviously' favour a move to anfield although spurs does have an appeal? has a 1 in 2.5 goalscoring average i believe, not alot of footage available but seems to have a good touch and a turn of pace too and only 23 too.
