"To Blair Mayne, Mr Broughton and James 007. Today's comments from the chairman confirm what we have suspected for a while, namely that you are a bunch of wind up merchants with no knowledge whatsoever about the club. Your credibility on this site has ended. "

I suggest you visit the official LFC site. The chairman has been quoted as saying "We're hopeful and I wouldn't put it any stronger than that that a deal can be done by the end of the transfer season." I think you will find the Chairman's words have confirmed what James 007 said months ago.
The only difference is the Chairman is lying about "no deal has been done". The club was sold in May.
What happened to those of you that believed Hicks's statement on Sky sports about "£800M and no takeover until end of year or 2011? What do you have to say now?

To the editor trust me when i tell u arteta will sign a new deal, ive been assured him and pienaar will sign, Irelands interest is because of Ben Arfa deal in trouble of over add ons but it could still happen {editor's note – but Ireland and Ben Arfa are hardly similar players are they? I know I was making assumptions because of that, but it just seems so unconnected.}

Rumours hotting up that Craig Bellamy will be signing for Celtic on a season long loan deal over the next few days. Truth definitely in it.

Neil Lennon wants a blue chip player and believes Bellamy is his man to fill the coveted number 7 shirt.

RANGERS RUMOURS

First off, who ever said Luca Toni will be arriving needs to get a grip. Also, I wouldn't expect to see Raul Tamudo, formerly of Espanyol, walking through the door because he's 32. James McArthur is away down south and I don't know how many more times it can be reinstated that he will not be joining Rangers. Another odd name being mentioned; Bosko Balaban will probably not be joining as he, for one is rather old, and two is on trial with Toronto FC who he will sign for.

Kevin Thomson and Steven Davis are both very unlikely to leave as they have both stated their loyalty to the club.

At least one of the following will leave:
Allan McGregor £5m (unlikely, but Portuguese and Premiership teams interested)
Danny Wilson £4m (Spurs are have been interested in him for quite some time)
Madjid Bougherra £8m (Host of clubs, Seria A, La Liga and Premiership all looking to acquire his services)

ARRIVALS:
Andy Webster (has returned from his loan)
Chris Brunt £3m (will request transfer at West Brom)
Georgie Welcome £500k (impressed when seen at world cup)
Robert Koren (is one of many free agents to be looked at)

These are a few of a substantial shortlist, please take into account that not every deal will go ahead.

Manchester United have bolstered their youth ranks with the capture of Northern Ireland under17 captain Luke McCullough.

The Portadownborn centre back has captained his country at a variety of levels and inked a twoyear scholarship deal at Old Trafford.

Speaking to MUTV, he admitted to supporting archrivals Liverpool but was ready to cast aside these ties.

"It's any boy's dream to get any club across the water but to get United, it's an added bonus, " McCullough said.

"The facilities were first class and the standard of player was better than anywhere else I visited. I'll just have to forget about it [Liverpool] for now.

The player will be able to use countryman Jonny Evans as a role model and hopes to follow him into the United first team.

"It's a great achievement for somebody from Northern Ireland to be a regular at Manchester United, " McCullough added.

To those who have said Trundle is out training at clubs, I can categorically deny this. Good friend of his wife he has recieved offers from Australia, America and Dubai, however is waiting to see if he can find a club in England local to his house in Crosby as he does not want to move his daughter out of school

 

01 Jul 2010 22:19:47
From a very reliable source at Norwich!
This concerns outs rather than ins!
Darel Russell is set to join either Stoke (Pulis loves him) or QPR. Personaly I think Stoke is likely. Thats where he will be training until everything is sorted.
David Stephens is also set to join Hibs tomorrow (slightly disapointed with this as he looked like a good prospect)
Michael Spillane will join Brentford, practically done deal.
Also, Norwich have a South American on trial, no names, nationalities or anything mentions, may come to nothing!

BREAKING NEWS Craig Bellamy and Ryan Giggs were spotted at Cardiff airport.
____________________________________________
Please stop, your killing me!

GIGGS, if you cut him in half he would have MAN U running through his insides!

more likely: Giggs Man U, 1 more season playing then involved with the youth some how!

Bellamy, depends who is willing to pay him the biggest wage, and offer the best fighting!

RPL:

Simon Kjaer to Arsenal. £7 Million.

2nd time you posted this, still never going to happen, stop making us Arsenal fans look like tools!

Kjaer is being looked at by many clubs, Arsenal are one of them, but and price would start around £910m, more likely higher!

Hangeland (spelling) may now be moved for, now Roy the boy is not there to protect him!

Good evening one and all,

Again, its fantastic reading some of the rumours on here, the "yeah right." to the "mmmmmmm .. that's interesting!!"

But, enough pontificating, onto the main crux of this posting.

I read this whole website once a day, usually in the evening when my wife is watching some crap on t.v. and I am increasingly becoming aware of the Man Utd rumours they seem to be getting less and less, in the sense of the amount, and the amount of players we are being linked with.

This is proving the fact that we don't seem to be making any moves in the transfer market the list of players we seem to be constantly linked with Silva, Gourcouff, Fabiano, Dzeko etc all seem to be willing to ply there trade anywhere other than O.T. and proof of the "lure" of O.T being on the waine, just look at recent activities Silva (Man City), Gourcouff (want to apparently join the French national squad at Arsenal), Fabiano agent has says his "client"(why are they always clients now, not my friend, or calling the player by there name?) has said he only wants to join AC Milan, Dzeko more likely to stay at Wolfsburg (maybe he gets a new golf bluemotion every 2 years?) or Chelski and now a very small mention on Talk Sport this morning was that Man Utd have pulled out of the race to sign Joe Cole!! Could this be honestly true? One of the best and most creative tallents England has produced in a while, and the supposidly biggest club in the country can't even sign him on a free? { (editor please comment)

And who do they say that United are looking at? Some 20yo "wonderkid" from Greece (Pop quiz footy fans, name the last world class player to emerge from the football hotbed that is Greece? 20 points to anyone who does!) WOW someone pass S.A.F a pair of tweezers, so he can pick out the splinters hes going to recieve from scraping that barrel so hard! And constantly he says he has money to spend but won't be held ransom to overpriced players mmmmmm me doth think the skin has only just regrown after having his fingers burnt from having to pay £31 million for Berbatov!

Now I don't claim to be S.A.F (his record speaks for itself), but unfortunatly I have some news IF YOU WANT THE BEST, YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IT! or maybe I doth simplify to much!! And in the past, he has shown no compunction in spending massive money on 1 player, so what has changed? NOTHING!! You can't spend what you don't have!

I genuinly don't expect United to read this and go "OOOOHHHH, lets prove these people wrong", and go and buy 3 4 good £15 20m players at once, but, buying 1 or maybe 2 (am I the only person who thinks our right back position is very very very weak!) would go someway to appeasing the growning concern in amongst United fans that we have zero money

So, whilst I love reading the site, about who's buying who, Im afraid its going to be a long hard, and unproductive summer for my beloved United

 

01 Jul 2010 21:45:12
To the people postin rangers news. Where are these Luca Toni and Leon Best transfers coming from? and Bougherra going for 5.5 million? he is worth around 6+!

 

01 Jul 2010 21:28:49
Hey even I'm a ManU fan but as far as my sources tell me, there has been no official effort whatsoever made by SAF to bring Ozil to OT till date. However, there is some good news, according to my sources, the Ninis deal "has been finalized". He is a great addition to the squad (believe me, you'll realize that once you see this guy in action).

Other than that, Micah Richards was also being rumoured as a ManU target..sorry, but he's joining Tottenham as far as I've heard (I really don't believe there was any substance to the rumour in the first place).

Berbatov and Anderson are being touted as addons to a swap deal (its still not clear for whom..but Berbatov is heading to Germany).

Sneijder is being chased by the club (100% confirmed, expect an official bid after the world cup). However, Mourinho might want him at Real Madrid, so its not going to be that easy.

As reported earlier by me, the club also has its eyes on Hazard and Pjanic, however, with Ninis coming in there might not be any further bids in the "young & upcoming midfielder" category especially with the limited budget.

Akinfeev is joining in January (again, the deal is as good as done).

I can also confirm that Milos Crasic and Luis Fabiano "are not joining ManUtd" although both of them were considered as valueable additions to the squad at one point of time. Both of them are most probably heading to Italy. Krasic's deal with Juventus is stuck at the moment because of monetary reasons Juventus have made a bid of 15 Mil, around 1.2 Mil short of the asking price (CSKA), and are unwilling to go beyond that figure. Fabiano's agent has confirmed that he is going to Italy with AC Milan and Juventus being the interested parties. Again, ManU have never made an official offer for the Brazilian (he's good but at his age, SAF may actually prefer Benzema).

SAF may bid for either Chiellini or Kjaer (depending on the funds available and his state of mind at that point of time he's still undecided) but only if Vidic leaves for Real Madrid. However, my sources at OT tell me that Vidic's move is becoming more and more unlikely with each passing day. Apparently, Mourinho has had a change of mind/heart. And believe me, Kjaer hasn't yet been transfered to "any premier league" team (though the reports coming in might be telling you a different story).

Again, if the Vidic deal happens, SAF may opt for a cash plus swap deal involving Benzema..but that's a BIG IF..

Carrick is on his way out with Villa and Tottenham interested (value: 911 Mil).

Nothing on Sanchez (Sad..would have loved to see him at OT). His valuation has sky rocketed after the world cup, however, he has personally said that he'd love to be a Red Devil, so you never know..but I can confirm that there has not been an official offer as yet neither has the club tried to contact his agent/Udinese in the last week or so. SAF is interested.

Not all of the above transfers will actually materialize but efforts are on for all of them. It all depends on the funds coming in from the sales/swap of players like Vidic, Anderson and Berbatov. The transfer kitty available is around 25 Mil (don't know if that includes the fees for Smalling and Hernandez).

Also, as I mentioned in my earlier post, 1 more "Star" signing is being considered (especially to bring the Green and Gold campaign to a halt, atleast for sometime) but despite my best efforts .. no names yet! My guess is as good as yours (maybe Dzeko, VDV or Ozil..who knows)

Forget Jonny Woodgate going to Middlesbrough, Strachan wants Mcmanus (for some reason) and Woody is a Leeds fan :)
Sorry for adding yet another Leeds rumour, but my contact claims that this carries some weight. Gee, imagine if Leeds get promoted again; there's a rosy future for this site, walltowall Leeds United rumours.
Still think Gary Hooper rumours are rubbish, he's not worth more than Beckford, and Paynter does indeed appear to be number 9

Now hodgson has finally taken over, lfc will start buying/selling players. mascharano definatly going around 25mil and yossi 6mil plus there is 1015 mil to spend, so we have 4045 to spend. expect a d/m possibly barry as man city brought toure but his decision to chase the money may go against him so murphy may come back for 1 last season, also a winger to come in and wright phillips and ireland maybe in for 15mil combined. i wouldn't be suprised if gerrard stays and he convinces milner to come aswll as he has been qouted before saying lfc would be his dream move. bentoslfc

Just been informed that Blackpool had Gary Hooper at Bloomfield Rd yesterday to be shown around the ground. He does have a choice between Blackpool, Leeds and Derby. If this deal does come off it will me a brilliant bit of buisness for the pool.

Plus NO Blackpool transfers will be announced until next week.

Thats Funny Mikey Hooper is due at Leeds later today or tomorrow for talks and a medical & looks set to join the championship new boys on Monday for £3m

Arsenal:
Laurent Koscielny's £8.5m transfer from FC Lorient to be confirmed by the end of the week, possibly as soon as Friday, with the 24 year old centre half set to put pen to paper on a £25,000 a week deal. I cannot see him being William Gallas' replacement. There will be another, probarbly more expensive centre back signed. The most likely options are Phil Jagielka, who Wenger has reportedly made an improved £10m offer to Everton for, or if this second offer for the centre back is rejected, Wenger will reportedly move for Werder Bremen's German centre half Per Mertesacker. With William Gallas, Sol Campbell and Mikael Silvestre all set to leave on frees, we will have four centre half options next season in Vermaelen, Jagielka/Mertesacker, Koscielny and Djourou.

The other signing looking increasingly likely is the £3.5m signing of Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer, with Hodgson having left for Anfield, this is more likely than ever. This will see the departure of Manuel Almunia, with Lukasz Fabianski, Vito Mannone and Wojech Sczensny to provide cover.

Cesc will stay at Arsenal, with the player himself reaffirming today his love for the club and his pride at being captain. This means no midfielders will be signed and no striker, despite the link with Balotelli. This means Marouane Chamakh, Laurent Koscielny, Phil Jagielka OR Per Mertesacker and Mark Schwarzer being the four big name signings this summer, and only William Gallas, Sol Campbell and Mikael Silvestre the only first team departures.

MUFC

Here's an interesting one I heard earlier, which would tie in a little with something the Editor said earlier regarding Everton's midfield..basically, I've heard that Arteta could be heading for OT. Arsenal were apparently interested but now that interest in Fabregas seems to be cooling, they've held off and there's a chance of a deal that would see £18million plus Michael Carrick going to Goodison, and Arteta heading to old trafford. Not gospel like, but the source seemed genuine and it would make some sense.

Roy Hodgson will not be signing any of his former players from Fulham, as this is part of his contract. However, Roy is indeed 'very' interested in signing two of the following:
Gilberto Silva
Joe Cole
Juan Mata
Yoann Gourcuff
P.S Milan Jovanovic will definately sign a 3 year contract with the club, seeing of interest from Rafa and Inter.

"The reasons behind Nigel Pearson's shock exit from Leicester will become more clear in the next month. Firstly, Paulo Sousa will be appointed and he will have money to spend, despite Milan Mandaric making cut backs. This is because foreign investors will be giving him money to spend to assemble his squad.

These unnamed investors have completed the take over of Leicester but it will not be made public whilst there is still paperwork to do. Nigel was 'pushed' to Hull, rather than him wanting to leave because the new investors wanted change.

There is also a delay in the transfer of Pratley Forest because he is waiting to see if Sousa is appointed, which he will be, and will follow him to Leicester.

Bruno Oliveira will follow Sousa, as well as one other member of Swansea's back room staff, but I didn't catch his name. Chris Powell will stay on as first team coach at Leicester, with Mike Stowell, Jordan Milson, Beaglehole, Peake also staying on as the backroom staff. Milan Mandaric has lined up a new chief scout and it is likely Matt Elliott will join the staff as well.

TH"

Sheesh, desperate fans will believe anything. "Unnamed Foreign Investors" is everyone's get out of jail free card.

Do you really believe that a manager who nearly got you two succesive promotions was not wanted by any hypothetical new owners? Oh please. The real reason is obvious to everyone and is that Mandaric fell out with him, as he has with every other manager he has employed. If Sousa ends up there he is in for a shock and Pratley is much more likely to follow Martinez than sousa, who he's only had one season under (that is if he hadn't already signed for celtic, which he has)."

You mean Forest, not Celtic. The deal was done back in May, and he'll be announced at 12pm tomorrow. If he's not, I'll apologise, but I'm 100percent certain.

RANGERS TRANSFER NEWS

I have it on very good authority Rangers have now agreed terms with Jose Goncalves ex Hearts and will sign him on a free within the next 2448 hours.

Roy Hodgson will make Bougherra one of his first signings for Liverpool with a fee in the region of £5.5m agreed. This move will end their interest in Wilson who will stay a further year and see out his contract.

With the Bougherra money Walter will step us his interest in left midfielder & Northern Ireland internationalist Chris Brunt from WBA.

Walter is also tracking two more players which he has been interested in the past. Tamudo is available on a free after leaving Espanyol but will need persuading and the salary to entice him to join the Scottish Champions but gauranteed Champions League football may tempt him to Scotland. However, Wigan manager Martinez is also sniffing about the Espanyol strker..

The other is West Ham's right sided player Julian Faubert who Walter tried to sign back in 2007 from Bordeaux. Walter is in discussions to try and take him on loan for the season.

I just like to say no fulham players will be moving to Liverpool as there is a an agreement in Hodgson leaving Fulham that he will not be allowed to sign any of their players.

West Ham news
West ham look set to miss out on Neymar as they have had 12.4 million pound bid rejected and i don't see how they could possibly have anymore money to put into an improved bid! Nothing is impossible though and i would love to see Neymar join West Ham but just do not know how they are going to do it!

01 Jul 2010 19:31:12
Nottingham Forest hope to make there first signings of the summer with Motherwells Mark Reynolds and Aston Villa's Nicky Shorey near enough signed.
Also Forest have also made a bid for Cardiffs Peter Whittingham for around 2m but this deal will take time because Cardiff are looking more for around 3m as Burnley have already had a 1.75m bid rejected.

Other names linked have been;
Chris Eagles
Darren Pratley
Jay Simpson
Andy Dorman
Charlie Austin

Theese 5 are just paper talk may not be true although Darren Pratley may be still be a target as Forest had a 2m bid rejeceted in January.

To the person who said:
Come on dumb ass.check out the LFC website, could that be Stevie G in the new LFC kit? errr.Yeah.It Was shot yesterday.
It also show's Kuyt, Babel and Masch.I'm sure that
they flew back just for the photo shoot, then flew back out to South Africa to finish playing in the World Cup!!

Ed, what was the goals to games ratio of javier hernandez at chivas last season and is mesut ozil a realistic man u target?If u could tell me i would really appreciate it.Thanks {editor's note – I haven't got a clue on the first bit, I am an anorak but not that much of one! As for Ozil, I don't know, his performances in the World Cup have put his price through the roof, so I doubt it, but he does so fit the need United have. I have not heard of them moving for him, but that doesn't mean they haven't or won't after Germany finish in the World Cup.}

Manchester United are lining up a bid for Udinese winger/Chile international, Alexis Sanchez. Around the £12m mark is the bid expected to be placed and hopefully if Udinese accept the bid.. Sanchez's dream will come true.

Also, Man City have confirmed the signing of David Silva from Valencia FC. £24m was the accepted bid from Valencia.. Yeah, money talks!!

Aston Villa have made an enquiry about bring McGeady to Villa Park with Luke Young and Curtis Davies and Nicky Shorey going the other way.

This would be a good deal for Celtic hopefully they go for this.

This isn't true, Nicky Shorey has already signed for Nottingham Forest and the signing will be announced in the next few days.

Comrades!

@ Robert The Red "Obviously you cannot read Dan. It has been reported that Stevie, and Carra are meeting Hodgson today."

Afraid you're wrong Robert and Dan is right. What Hodgson said was "I'm anxious to meet two key players (Gerrard and England defender Jamie Carragher) and hear how they feel about the club."

Expect an influx of players now that lennon has begun wheeling and dealing. cha du ri is common knowledge now (i posted roughly about 8 days ago that he was signing), however i have heard a few other names in the pipeline; Graziano Pelle, Alfred N'Diaye, James Vaughan, Juso Karvonen, Dubi Ogbonna.

Not the most exciting players but hey this is celtic were talkin' 'bout.
Also expect the usual unknown young foreign players to come into the clubs youth system.

Leicester City.

From strong links inside the club Paulo Sousa was Milan Manderic's guest of honour at Leicester Citys Championship playoff final first leg at Leicester soo something was going off there, then Nigel Pearson was approached by Hull and without even speaking to him face to face MM let him go to Hull, NP has even come out and said how easy it was for him to leave so MM has lined Paulo Souza up for the Jon before we has even been promoted!

With regards 2 the person who said jim o'brien (ex celtic) to rangers for 1/2 million he has already left motherwell for a championship side barnsley i think so get your facts right before you print silly rumours.scottish news say lennon has held further talks with ledley and lawrence, he aslo expects to have an answer from bullard and campbell by start of next week.p.s mizuno and zgeng zi (spelling) both released today.hail hail in lennon we trust.

Editor any news on Ireland to EFC? is it true? as the Ben Arfa interest cooled? cheers {editor's note – it does seem like Moyes has given up on Ben Arfa, though it could quite easily be a negotiating tactic. He could be just pretending to lose interest as he knows there isn't a lot of other clubs in the mix for Ben Arfa. The Ireland interest is very genuine, which must mean someone is leaving as you have no shortage of midfielders. I am thinking it must be Arteta as Pienaar, so I have been assured, will sign his new contract.}

To the one who reached idiotic conclusions:"If silva was available for 25mil.y dint man utd sign him?does that mean man utd can't aford even a 25mil star?any body heard about j.s park leaving??"

So even real madrid, chelsea, barcelona were rumoured to be interested in him. So according to your theory even they cannot afford a 25mil player. Truth is nobody wanted silva. That is why he was making those come and get me pleas to united and chelsea. Valencia wanted to sell him badly, so he had to join city! Also Park is not leaving. Be assured of that. Some bayern hopeful fans are trying to make up a rumour which does not exist. Park does not want to change countries, he is very settled in england and has good friends in the team like evra.

Arsenal Transfer News:

Have been told that Koscielny will be signed soon (within 48hrs). Now that Hodgson is Liverpool's manager, signing Schwarzer should be easier. Another centre back is required, probably as back up so an unknown (savic or Halliche) most likely. Can't see it myself but have been told an equiry has been made over the availibility of Nigel De Jong of City, dunno if you have any arsenal news ed

Celtic have just signed mulgrew, and are on the verge of signing another, rangers have said they will not sell bougy, there is trouble at motherwell and what is the topical debate on the real radio football phone in TENNIS.
people only ever care about tennis when wimbledon is on or when murray is winning, people need to get a life, tennis is dull and boring who cares if murray is britsh or scottish. They are moaning that there was an English flag above the house of parliment when the world cup is on and they say there should be a scottish flag up for murray. What do you think ed, do you think people jump on the tennis bandwagon to often and argue over stupid things such as flags and nationality (as football fans do) , i know this post does not have a rumour in it but i would like to know what people think.

What makes me laugh is that he is nicknamed the German because he is said to be so organised in Cameroon, yet he is the most disorganised player I have seen playing in Liverpool colours. Shows how different their ideas of defensive organisation are, no wonder they always employ European coaches.}

"Aston Villa have made an equiry about bring McGeady to Villa Park with Luke Young and Curtis Davies and Nicky Shorey going the other way."

Sorry.. But that's a total of 11.5m13.5m (depending how much we ask for Davies who's running about 57m). McGeady is worth at most, 8.5m, and if it's any higher, we can find someone much better or keep Milner. Plus, with Davies being looked at by Spurs and Liverpool, ShoreyFulham and Young Sunderland, I doubt they feel like going to the SPL. You can keep McGeady if that's the case.

2) SCHWARZER 3.5M

3) MERTESACHER 12M
4) UNKNOWN FRENCH PLAYER 56M

JUST NO ! why would he want to sign for a team that's getting relegated this year? anyway back to wolves. i know we want mancienne either on loan or permanent but chelsea are making us wait which MM is frustrated about. he will turn his attention elsewhere and im just wondering where and who he is looking at? cheers {editor's note – it doesn't look like Mancienne is going, though the good side is that Doyle is almost certain to stay, about as certain as can be in football anyway. I am not sure if this is 100%, but I am sure one of the Scots on here will have a better idea, but I heard McCarthy has enquired about Bougherra. Makes sense, but I am not convinced it is any more than pure conjecture.}

"ASTON VILLA:
Suprisingly enough, Villa are looking to sign four players. Goalkeeper Brad Friedel is in surely his last Premier League year, and West Ham's Robert Green is being looked at for around £10m. Newcastle defender Steven Taylor is another target, for around £2.8m. Spurs midfielder Jamie O'Hara's future is uncertain, but a £6m bid could go in for him, seeing as he is destined to depart White Hart Lane this summer. And then injuryplagued Brazilian forward Eduardo is another name being linked with Villa, the Arsenal man could come to Villa Park for around £8m."

We go from wanting Frey to wanting Green? Where do people come up with this. We have the best back up goal keeper in the EPL who's better than half the starters. We don't need a new goal keeper.
We have no interest in O'Hara and Eduardo would cost about 56. We also gave up on Steven Taylor, looking at the Korean International but we truly don't need a CB, we need a RB.. Stop trying to make Villa look bad signing crap. O'Neill said he wants to strengthen, not make us look horrible with these 4 crap players.

 

01 Jul 2010 17:18:41
Joe Cole Real Madrid. 110,000K a week deal. 2 years.

'Joe cole does want to remain in england but only for manchester united or arsenal. arsenal will no offer more than 80k a week and manchester united are looking towards developing future talents rather than taking on players at their/just past their peak. rafa benitez wanted Joe Cole as his first signing but Jose Mourinho for obvious reason will have had the power to sway his thaughts from milan to madrid'

Jeremy Toulalan 12m Plus Yossi Benayoun to liverpool is something that hodgson will try move for. no chance of zamora to liverpool, the only person who may travel from craven cottage to anfield is clint dempsey, who can fill in the same sort of role that yossi benayoun can fill.

Neymar 17m to AC Milan, west ham have tried purchasing this player, but rejected a 12.5 million pound bid. Santos rejected listening to offers beneath 15 million, neymar is a player owned by an agent, such as tevez or mascherano were, and the transfer fee will be discussed by them.

Andy Carroll Chelsea Offered 3m and Kakuta and Sturridge on loan with a view to buy. but newcastle want 9m or more for carroll, making him more or less unbuyable.

Odd Rumour Everton Have signed Beckford and Magaye Gueye.Shows there not afraid to give people a change. well they have also signed>>> Ezequiel Miralles

 

01 Jul 2010 17:19:08
Take Sheffield Wednesday rumours with a pinch of salt: Gary Teale and Giles Coke have been reported in the local paper today, and Neil Mellor on loan was reported on Sky Sports. That's simply passing on what is already being drafted around.

My inside source is still telling me that we want Pabs Counago, but no deal has been done and talks are still at a gentle stage. Counago has apparently been transferlisted and Irvine wants him to lead the line with Heffernan/Tudgay/Johnson. I think it's between him and Mellor.

The reasons behind Nigel Pearson's shock exit from Leicester will become more clear in the next month. Firstly, Paulo Sousa will be appointed and he will have money to spend, despite Milan Mandaric making cut backs. This is because foreign investors will be giving him money to spend to assemble his squad.

These unnamed investors have completed the take over of Leicester but it will not be made public whilst there is still paperwork to do. Nigel was 'pushed' to Hull, rather than him wanting to leave because the new investors wanted change.

There is also a delay in the transfer of Pratley Forest because he is waiting to see if Sousa is appointed, which he will be, and will follow him to Leicester.

Bruno Oliveira will follow Sousa, as well as one other member of Swansea's back room staff, but I didn't catch his name. Chris Powell will stay on as first team coach at Leicester, with Mike Stowell, Jordan Milson, Beaglehole, Peake also staying on as the backroom staff. Milan Mandaric has lined up a new chief scout and it is likely Matt Elliott will join the staff as well.

TH"

Sheesh, desperate fans will believe anything. "Unnamed Foreign Investors" is everyone's get out of jail free card.

Do you really believe that a manager who nearly got you two succesive promotions was not wanted by any hypothetical new owners? Oh please. The real reason is obvious to everyone and is that Mandaric fell out with him, as he has with every other manager he has employed. If Sousa ends up there he is in for a shock and Pratley is much more likely to follow Martinez than sousa, who he's only had one season under (that is if he hadn't already signed for celtic, which he has).

Yeah maybe it will never happen but at least as a football fan we can dream and hear the right noise being made by my club..

Its not about being stupid as you say but as a football fan we all dream of great talent playing for our club and in the spl we dream more than others..

01 Jul 2010 12:25:31Funny how some people can't get the fact in to their head that Scotland is a part of Britain, therefore Rangers are a British team, as are Celtic, hence the fact Celtic were the first BRITISH team to win the European Cup. Me thinks certain Celtic supporters have a problem with these facts.Does anyone know what happened to Willie McStay? Surely something happened there, he only recently came back to Celtic.

Yes we are british with irish roots and we are proud of it mate yet you claim to be northern irish rather than scottish what does northern ireland have to do with rangers answer that one yi clown



I'm not gonna bother answerin in celtic/rangers/catholic/protestant/ireland/northern ireland posts anymore unless there is a name with it, so I know what context it is in, i.e banter, jokes or someone looking to start nonsense on here, at least if there's a name you know who it is and if they're havin a laugh or what, there's too many nameless ppl and you don't know what their motive is for bringing these subjects up, now that i've said my piece on that bit.

Willie McStay I don't exactly know what happened over the past day or 2, however about 3 weeks ago I posted that Wiilli Mcstay put himself forward to be interviewed, and subsequently was, for the St Mirren Job as he already back then he was surplus to requirements at Celtic Park, so I don't think it's a knee jerk reaction to anything. IMO Lennon wants his WHOLE own Back Room staff, and Mcstay was brought in/back when he resigned from his hungarian club. THis was not a Lennon appt, and therefore when Lennon got the job it was pretty clear he would be going. Lennon has made it abundantly clear he will choose ALL footballing staff, including a Mentor, IF he decides to bring one in.
But I do agree McStay was a great servant to the club, especially in bringing thru the youth, I would like to have seen him stayin in some sort of capacity.

since were pulling people up about getting someone in the wrong positionNinis is a Right Mid/right winger.quote "DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL"

(Ninis can play right wing/ left wing/ right centre/ left centre, he can also play just behind the striker so i guess i do know my footy, although i agree he mainly plays as a right winger for Panathinaikos, besides Fletcher can play left centre just as well as on the right side so he could swap with Fletch. My guess is Ninis will be given a free role like Sanchez has when playing for Chile.)

6 players out/potentially out of Chelsea Joe Cole, Ballack, Belletti, Stoch and soon to be Carvahlo and Deco. Possibly Hilario plus 1 more senior squad member. So 8 out potentially.

Any realistic rumours on who is coming in? A lot of boots to fill. Youth players may be promoted, but if Chelsea wants to win the Champions League, a couple of matchchanging players need to be brought in.

Bennayoun appears likely to be brought in as a squad/bench player (but he is no young spring chicken) but are any others linked on here realistic or just pipedream signings?

AROUND 'TWELVE' YOUNGSTERS WITH LOW SALARIES HAVE BEEN PROMOTED TO THE FIRST TEAM SO BENAYOUN AND ONE, MAYBE TWO MORE SIGNINGS WILL COME IN, ALTHOUGH DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO THINKING RIBERY, KAKA, AGUERO ETC WILL BE COMING IN, I WOULD IMAGINE ONE OR TWO 10M SIGNINGS WILL COME IN AT THE MOST, LUIZ, SRNA & MARVEAUX HAVE BEEN CLOSELY WATCHED.

ED IS THERE ANY OTHERS THAT HAVE BEEN 'CLOSELY' LINKED TO CHELSEA?

LFC

I suggest you watch the first conference with Hodgson and Broughton (Sky Sports). Pay attention to what Broughton says about the take over. This will hopefully stop such bull being posted about deals being nearly done etc. etc.

Good Luck Roy! YNWA


he also states that the owners HAVE stepped down, barclays control the sale completely, they(the owners) cannot intervene or stop the sale, the sale will be to the best package for the club, not the biggest offer and that the club DO NOT financially need to sell ANY PLAYER to service the debt and money is currently available for transfers.
all of this is published on the lfc website and available for everyone to read.
so yeah, all relentless lies and bull sht should now end!

Gary hooper was shown around bloomfield road.i bet he was well impressed, if hooper is to up roots it will be to leeds as he has been seen on more than one ocassion at elland road.i cannot see the fee being £3mill though more in the region of £1.5 to £2mill.he is out of contract next year and scunny will not pass up the opurtunity of the cash.HOOPERLEEDS UNITED BOUND.

 

01 Jul 2010 16:15:42
Hi hope this gets posted as i really want to show how much crap people talk about. If people read what Martin Broughton said about the sale they will know that Hick nor Gillette have any say in who the club gets sold to and to what price.

He said and i quote "The owners can't block the sale of the club. I read all too frequently numbers being floated about in the media, normally associated with Tom Hicks's name. I would like to make it clear there is no number. There is no base line.

"This is a willing buyer, willing seller auction. We will do a deal with what we consider to be the best bidder. The best bidder may not be the highest bidder. It's about more than just money. It's about stadium development, the team and the whole piece.

So reading that Hicks and Gillette have no say in the club matters they can't keep money from sales to go to the debt, they can't dictate terms and conditions of the sale.

On transfers nobody knows who Hodgson is going to buy i don't think even he knows yet he needs to sit down assess the players and find the weaknesses. So people who say they have seen so and so from Fulham getting off a plane and John Lennon please get a life. I just hope Hodgson looks into buying a left back, left winger and striker and that we keeo hold of Torres and Gerrard but if they want to go I wouldn't fight tooth and nail to keep them. No player is bigger than the team.

The reasons behind Nigel Pearson's shock exit from Leicester will become more clear in the next month. Firstly, Paulo Sousa will be appointed and he will have money to spend, despite Milan Mandaric making cut backs. This is because foreign investors will be giving him money to spend to assemble his squad.

These unnamed investors have completed the take over of Leicester but it will not be made public whilst there is still paperwork to do. Nigel was 'pushed' to Hull, rather than him wanting to leave because the new investors wanted change.

There is also a delay in the transfer of Pratley Forest because he is waiting to see if Sousa is appointed, which he will be, and will follow him to Leicester.

Bruno Oliveira will follow Sousa, as well as one other member of Swansea's back room staff, but I didn't catch his name. Chris Powell will stay on as first team coach at Leicester, with Mike Stowell, Jordan Milson, Beaglehole, Peake also staying on as the backroom staff. Milan Mandaric has lined up a new chief scout and it is likely Matt Elliott will join the staff as well.

TH

is this true mate have we been taken over ?? i hope we get sousa and not that scot, billy reid (nothing against scots just don't wanna see another 1 managing city) i hope we can replicate sum of the success from last year :) blue mod

ED after searching relentlesly i've finally heard a rumour from inside dundee united all be it it was from someone who knows someone from inside tannadice so mite not be 100% but the rumour is houston needs to offload gary kenneth , david goodwillie, craig conway, and margaro gomis he's looking 1m + for each player to balance the books and give a little for transfers. the transfers on his list aresupposed to be noel hunt, jason scotland, andy webster, and eric matoukou also others on list but these were the 4 biggest .i don't believe for a minute he'll get the 4 of them but could believe he mite get 2. this sourse has been reliable in the pastwhat do you think could this rumour be a hundred mile away. {editor's note – I don't know about Noel Hunt, unless he has had a few setbacks last season, only they were rejecting any offers for him and they were mostly coming from EPL teams. That is if we are thinking of the same player? Stephen Hunt (now of Wolves) younger brother? Scotland is definitely looking for a move, and he is keen on returning to the SPL, that is very possible, it will come down to who is competing with you for his signature.}

In response to

ARE YOU SERIOUS?? SWP would walk straight into the Arsenal team, Theo Walcott is to put it mildly PANTS, and my unborn child is more use down the right wing than Walcott! Diaby although played out on the right has tried but he is at best a centre midfielder, Eboue? Less said about him the better although he improved slightly last year. Therefore the right side of Arsenal's midfield is up for grabs And SWP is the perfect tonic!

SWP was the worst player in man citys team this year, an was the worst player in englands world cup squad, arsenal will never sign him, he wouldn't get in the reserves. The only thing he is good for is losing the ball.

why would celtic even consider eduardo after his dive last season against us. Also there is no way villa would pay 5m and reocoker and shorey for mcgeady. hes worth £6m at the most.

Torquay United

Lloyd Macklin Signs for the Gulls, after being let go by Swindon Town, He played for Torquay on loan during the season, but was injured and did not have the playing time to proove himself but did score one for the Gulls. Buckle seems to be quite enthusiastic about his arrival, saying

'Lloyd showed some good form during his loan spell here even though he picked up an injury. He has electric pace and is another young player who can contribute on the pitch now and also has plenty of potential.'

In other Tranfer news, i have heard from a reliable source that Burton Albion CB Guy Branston, who was on loan to the Gulls last season, and made a great impression in a short time, by becoming 2nd in the player of the year vote, behind top goal scorer Elliot Benyon, has signed a contract with Torquay, and will be later confirmed on the Official Site (torquayunited.com) today (1/7/2010) He will partner up and coming CB Mark Ellis

One last piece of news is that Scott Rendell, is close to signing for the Gulls but that's all i have on that one!

One last bit RIP Paul Bristow who sadly passed away on Wednesday, and was the architect behind Torquays successful promotion to League 2, and without him it would be more probable that we would be playing in the Blue Square, Thank you for everything you have done for our club, and you will be sadly missed.

6 players out/potentially out of Chelsea Joe Cole, Ballack, Belletti, Stoch and soon to be Carvahlo and Deco. Possibly Hilario plus 1 more senior squad member. So 8 out potentially.

Any realistic rumours on who is coming in? A lot of boots to fill. Youth players may be promoted, but if Chelsea wants to win the Champions League, a couple of matchchanging players need to be brought in.

Bennayoun appears likely to be brought in as a squad/bench player (but he is no young spring chicken) but are any others linked on here realistic or just pipedream signings?

Hi All,
Can I just clarify a few things please?

Not all Leeds fans are of the disillusion that were about to sign Alan Smith for lousy 15K a week.

a) Smudger is on at least 4 Times that amount at the "soap" that is Newcastle!
b) We really don't have 3m (Ken Bates isn't spending a penny the tight git)

Whoever put that is a grade a "Tard".

And to those that think Leeds fans are "Unrealistic", we're not, we (the majority) don't think were about to sign Lionel Messi or Ronaldo for 6 quid and a bag of walkers!

Anyway people stop putting your fin pipe dreams on here and embarrassing the rest of us rational people with your daydream afterbirth of an idea! And to those that continue to do so, like someone wrote the other day, I hope an army of horseflies infest your arse!

Celtic fans need to take a reality check.
Charlie Mulgrew has signedthat's the level the SPL is at.
Jimmy Bullard, Sol Campbell, even, have said about Celtic's interest for a while now.They are letting clubs know their available and in Campbells case what it will take to secure their services.2 yr deal.
They want to stay in the EPL.Clubs may not take them up on their availability and they may end up at Celtic Park but won't be for the want of trying to stay down South.

Rangers will sell Bougherra and Wilson if an acceptable offer came in.And Boyd may make u turn and resign.Can't see him plying his trade in warmer climes like Turkeycouldn't handle Scottish heat in SC final v. Falkirk!McArthur and Goodwillie the most likely to be signed.

Stephen Pienarr to Man City fo £29m, should be unveiled at the weekend.

well to be honest mate your telling me and all users to this site that steven pienaar is worth more then what man utd paid for wayne rooney.rooneys transfer was 27mill i think plus addons which obviously happend as united won the league at the time.steven pienaar is no were near 29mill id say everton would accept in the region of around 1015mill.

on another note anymore news on the stephen ireland situation as ive heard he was at evertons finch farm the other day and also he was looking around flats on liverpools waterfront.

hope everton could get couple more players in pref with expierence as up to now he(moyes) got few young lads in only beckford and mucha are stand out signings up to now.

game v porto this season that falcao and campbell had a straight race over say 20 yards and ull never guess what? campbell beat him! im a rangers fan btw so not taking sides! rangers have came out and said that neither bougherra or wilson will be sold this summer so expect a bougherra webster partnership with weir and wilson as back up. kevin thomson to be made captain this season too. there is a possibility that kris boyd may peform a U turn and sign an improved offer from rangers as no team who are intersted in him can offer him champs league football.

joe

Re: Sorry Joe, Bain has come out and said Boughie & Wilson aint for sale purely to try and drive the asking price up trust me if gers get anything in the reigh of 7m for him he will be off( he has stated he wants to play in prem annol) with regards to Wilson he has rejected a new contract cos he had hopes of joining Liverpool, dunno if that is on the cards still with rafa no longer there maybe ed can clear up if he knows whether Wilson was a rafa target or not? again anything over 3m with clauses will be accepted i reckon. Mind we still have Webster there and weir however i would expect another to be signed if/when they are both sold. I agree Boyd might do the u turn tho cos he simply aint keen in goin to Turkey (only really the prem). I don't think Sol has the hunger for the game anymore to be honest and he is also using celtic as a bargaining tool as well i think. However if nothing better than celtic comes he will join.

So Mulgrew has signed for Celtic I stand corrected on my opinion!

TBH I aint to happy about the signing, yeah he's progressed since he left, improved as a player, i'm just a little dissapointed we went down that route. and

But now that he has signed I fear it may just be the start of a domino effect! I should be hearing some stuff later on this arvo, i'll ask a few q's about my opinion on my "domino effect" theory and if it's right i'll let ye know

Sol Campbell latest.

He has apparently agreed to talks with Arsenal then he gets married and goes on honeymoon before giving Celtic his decision by the end of July. This makes him ineligible for Champions league qualifiers anyway why are we pursuing someone who is only concerned with money and improving his CV in contract negotiations with Arsenal. Has Celtic really lost the plot. Mulgrew waste of wages Bullard waste of wages bring on Lennons minder soon his judgement on players seems flawed to me

"Newcastle defender Steven Taylor is another target, for around £2.8m."

^^^

To this clown, Are you high?? Jamie O'Hara for £6m an average player who is totally out of favour at his club, Yet Steven Taylor one of the best defensive prospects in the country for £2.8m, He has 1 year left of his contract but the fee would be minimum £5.5m if he was to be sold, Which he isnt.


I didn't post the 1st comment but in reply to Steven Taylor, one of the best defensive prospects, give me a break, he is an average player at best, out of position, slow ish, I live in Newcastle and half the supporters I know up here don't even rate him. Best thing they could of done was accept £10m off Chelsea a few seasons ago, now he'd command £4m at best

JW's final destination seems to be his old club Middlesbrough where he had his longest injury free time. Middlesbrough have approached Spurs for the year long loan of Right back Kyle Naughton and have been told if you want him, you have to take Woodgate back as well.

HA HA YOU HAVE GOT TO LAUGH!

Cesc Fabregas has been snubbed by Barcelona, the Catalan club will buy Ozil for a mere 20 million. Proof that Cesc is well overrated and overpriced, they would rather have the German in their team and he will cost half the price.

Cesc will start saying that he loves Arsenal, that London is where his heart belongs, we all know its utter garbage but the Arsenal fans will believe it because they always do.


I hoped that cesc would leave and we would bring in maybe Ozil, Hazard or Gourcuff..

EDITOR can you confirm my repeated posts how cesc will stay at arsenal and for the reasons i have reposted please, , i have been stating alot about the cesc fabregas story and how hw won't leave and ozil beeing cheaper option taking alot of the attention of cesc and with cesc not playing he has said he is proud and loves arsenal and wants to play everygame. Wenger has Pep of barca ready to replace him when he moves up to the board and havind pep cesc's boyhood idol and wenger at arsenal at the club cesc will be happy to stay. though the ozil move from barca will see in 3 years become a bargining tool for getting cesc cheaper prop offer him and 15M considering ozil is costing 18M means the will get cesc for 33M watch it the spanish clubs are very fly in transfers

Question to Editor.

Whats happening at Old Trafford? From keeping an eager eye on here for something concrete I get the impression no one really has a clue!

Have you heard anything or do you know who we are tracking? {editor's note – there is not a lot happening in first team terms, mostly it is kids being tracked. Fergie wants to give Hargreaves a chance to prove himself next season, Defour will be bought if Hargreaves looks off the pace in pre–season. Actually I should say Defour is the first choice in that situation. Other than that it is a creative midfielder (ie Ninis) that is wanted, unless someone comes along and offers silly money for a player that Fergie would be prepared to sell, such as Vidic or Berbatov.}

Charlie Mulgrew has joined the Hoops on a 3 year contract. Celtic's website has confirmed.

 

01 Jul 2010 11:50:49
@ Joe, Sorry Joe but i can' tell you, categorically, that Steven redi failed a Medical on the w/e of 23rd of May, and then Signed a contract with WNA on the 26th (i think it was, maybe 27th) of May, it's a simple as, he NEVER ever once turned Celtic down. No terms were put to him, or were going to be until AFTER a medical, as the contract would be based around his fitness.! fact!

@ aldsybhoy haven't heard anything concrete about Cha Du ri, but would expect him to sign, I'm still doubtful (IMO) of Mulgrew deal being done, have a few reasons, but it's just me putting 2 and 2 together, maybe i'm getting 22 lol, however I will be speaking with 1 of the guys who I usually hear my info from, later this afternoon
And I think he's got a bit to tell, now that lenny's back and that wheels are in motion for moves (hopefully) . So "hopefully" have some news later on this evening.

As for other talk today, Bougherra and Wilson (alledgedly) not being sold by Rangers, this exact story was in a post I done last Sunday, and not a post like half the ones on here "they're goin nowhere" "bougys stayin" etc. I had met with one of the ppl I get info from, unfortunately I i didn;t get any Celtic news, but did get news on Rangers, the same night I said that T.smith form the All whites and so had 2 asian/korean players ( which I was mocked for) I stated with justification, that Rangers are in a lot better financial state that their public persona is displaying, I said they would be signing 4 players, and that Smith will be doin all he can to keep Boughy, AS HE DOESN'T NEED to sell him, he will only go if a "aiden mcgeady sill offer" was recieved. I explained why, i great depth etc. again I was laughed at, saying that he was leaving etc, he still might, but again something that I have said 2 weeks prior appears in the paper 2 weeks later. I didn't write anything about wilson that night as his situation is completly different, he can sign elsewhere in Jan, they can afford to pay him wages, but won't be held to ransom (a la boyd) the difference between Boughy and Wilson is Bougy would like to stay, hence the reason I mentioned that night that he prob will, but left out Wilson, IMO wilson will leave, it makes financial sense for Rangers, and tbh Smith usually doesn't give in to ego's like that.

Oh don;t get me wrong, I was revelling in the fact prior till i got that news that boughy would leave, but upon getting solid info, i retracted my previous OPINIONS and stating what facts were on the table

ARSENAL NEWS

GK) Mark Schwarzer (Fulham) A £3.5m deal will be done now Hodgson has left. Schwarzer is the stop gap Wenger wanted someone experienced to give him 2 seasons until Mannone and Sczesny have gained experience through loan spells and cup runs.
CB) Stefan Savic BSK Borca
CB) Laurent Kocsielny (Lorient)
CB) Per Mertesacker (Bremen), Phillipe Mexes (Roma), Simon Kjaer (Palermo) One of these 3 is likely, Koscielny is left footed (same as Vermaelen) and Wenger will want to balance the back line.
RB) Van der Wiel (Ajax) providing Maicon moves to Madrid, Sagna is first choice to replace him. If Inter meet the valuation (£15m) then Van der Wiel is the earmarked replacement for around £8m.
ST) Marouane Chamakh (Free agent) signed to challenge Van Persie as the central striker will not be deployed wide as many have predicted on here in their fantasy squads! Chamakh has pace, clinical finishing and the aerial ability that is much needed in the squad.

OUT: Sol Campbell, William Gallas, Mikael Silvestre, Fran Merida (FREE AGENTS), Jay Simpson, Lukas Fabianski, Kerrea Gilbert, Armand Traore, Francois Coquelin (Lorient Loan deal).

Fabregas likely to stay due to Barca being unable and unwilling to meet the asking price of £60m. Wenger won't do business for any first team players once pre season training begins.

Paul Scharner may be drafted in on a free as cover for Diaby and Song. He is an Arsenal supporter and would jump at the chance to join the club. He is 30 though but he has experience of the Premier League, something Wenger values highly. No deal for the overrated Joe Cole he'll be at Spurs next season.

 

01 Jul 2010 11:38:03
Okay not posted for a while because I was waiting for the manager situation at LFC to be sorted out.

As i've said in the past if Roy Hodgson gets the job it means that the takeover talks are not going well. Only I was wrong. The talks ARE progressing and there are now three interested parties. The issue now more complicated however.

The offer from the group which are connected to 'antelopes' has been in for a while now (intial offer made in Feb 10) and has been accepted by most of the board. This is the offer that Broughton is trying to push and simply needs to be accepted and ratifed by the Premier League. The EPL is aware of this bid and they have done the 'fit and proper' test. The only problem is that the board have now split.

Purslow is not backing this offer. He is convinced that a new (third)party which has expressed an interest since last week (Wednesday to be precise) should be sounded out. This third party is a group of investors, two of whom were involved in a bid in 2008. Their last bid was made directly to Hicks and he turned them down flat.

The party in the middle has offered and withdrawn two proposals and is now back again. However this bid has no real support from either Broughton or Purslow.

The issue of Hodgson is NOT indicative of anything I got that wrong. The main ownership candidates are happy with Hodgson although, if successful in their bid, they will set a time limit on his tenure, based on success (in exactly the same way as Mansour gave Hughes some time before jumping in at Man City).

The next two weeks are now crucial. RBS WILL call in the loans before the end of THIS year. The board know this. Gillett and Hicks have stopped communicating with each other (again) and Gillett has given his backing to the first bid. Hicks is trying to hold out and his mouthpiece at the talks is PURSLOW. However Hicks is aware that his position is close to untenable. Unless he sells up soon, his ENTIRE business empire will crash. The viability of his other businesses (nonsport) rests on him selling his sporting interests.

Yet again I urge you to read between the lines starting with today's press conference at Anfield. And listen very carefully when Steven Gerrard gives his opinion. I'd love to say I have more knowledge but in the last three days the board have become even more secretive if that's possible.

LFC news Gerrard + Fernando staying for at least another year as they like Roy Hodgson's ideas and plans for the club. Joe Cole is ready to put pen to paper and sign £110,000 a week deal. Also Hodgson is looking to bring Rafael Van Der Vart to the club.
The Bainbridge Ripper

To the person who wrote this..

Gerrard has gone on Holiday and is not anywhere near Liverpool. Torres is in South Africa concentrating on the world cup. Liverpool don't have the money to pay Joe coles wages and it looks like Van Der Vart who is also concentrating on the World Cup, is on his way to Man City.

01 Jul 2010 11:35:03
Wba fans need to calm down. Ur not gonna sign 5 or 6 players and ur definatley not going to spend more than 7 or 8 mil total. O hara no piquionne no di matteo doesn't want him. U may try and sign curtis davies back for 4 4.5 mill and u will sign a striker. Ur not gna get gyan or ne1 like him. Healy chopra maybe. U will get an inexperienced at prem level. Maybe good champ or some1 like samaras. Then maybe 1 or max 2 more to strengthen.
Blues will sign only 2 more players for fees. Maybe from europe. This is because the majority of english based target are either not for sale anymore or have turned them down pav babel both will stay at respective clubs. N zog has turned them down as has miccoli. blues have the finances but can't attract the players. 2 big signings will be older european players 30 or 31 year olds.
Wolves will try once more with a 4mil bid for manciennne or a 2 mill bid for ndaw if chelsea don't want to sell. Expect 1 other signing out of no where. Young or high potential.

ben turner

smith isn't signing for us, we will only be spending money on beckfords replacement ( which is looking like it could be Hooper ) and maybe a couple of more players who don't cost over a million . 3 million coming out of bates pocket , more chance of pigs flying

expect more free's to sign in next week , and hopefully we can win Hoopers signiture

Cesc Fabregas has been snubbed by Barcelona, the Catalan club will buy Ozil for a mere 20 million. Proof that Cesc is well overrated and overpriced, they would rather have the German in their team and he will cost half the price.

Cesc will start saying that he loves Arsenal, that London is where his heart belongs, we all know its utter garbage but the Arsenal fans will believe it because they always do.

game v porto this season that falcao and campbell had a straight race over say 20 yards and ull never guess what? campbell beat him! im a rangers fan btw so not taking sides! rangers have came out and said that neither bougherra or wilson will be sold this summer so expect a bougherra webster partnership with weir and wilson as back up. kevin thomson to be made captain this season too. there is a possibility that kris boyd may peform a U turn and sign an improved offer from rangers as no team who are intersted in him can offer him champs league football.

joe

sol could just like weir out think most players in spl as for bhoyd staying to play in champs leaguewatty mostly goes with kenny m up front himself so am not buyin that one,
i would take chris eagles as replacement for magreadys position no probs don't see it happening though

Man city team for next season from someone who actually understands the team unlike the clowns who are playing yaya at centre half!
joe hart will be number one at the start of the season but expect rotation throughout, its thought given will be given the most time possible to recover from his shoulder injury.
Hart
BoatengKompanyLescottKolarov
DeJong
M.JohnsonYaya
SilvaBellamy
Tevez

Bench: Given Onouha Bridge Ireland Weiss A.Johnson Adebayor

Barry will be Hodgson's first signing at liverpool as a replacement for Mascherano, and despite what many people believe it will be one toure in and one toure out, kolo will move to italy or france. Kompany will be named as club captain following the departure of toure, with dejong as his vice. Bellamy and johnson will be rotated in and out depending on who the opponent is, bellamy saved for the bigger games due to johnsons lack of experience.

The only other spanner that could be thrown into the works is Torres, he will become a city player if Hodgson decides he needs the funds for the rest of the squad, expect something in the region of £60million if a deal is to be done.

Just three more signings are required at The New Den this summer, and they are chasing a new striker to partner Steve Morison. Charlie Austin (Swindon£1m), Simeon Jackson (Gillingham£600,000), Lee Trundle (SwanseaFREE) have all been mentioned. Also, the Championship new boys are chasing a winger to provide competition with Hackett, Schofield and Batt, and will probably turn to former loan star and Reading winger James Henry, however it's likely that it will be a loan deal only. And finally the Lions are after a creative centralmidfielder, and fellow new boys Norwich City midfielder Darel Russell could be joining. He is out of contract at Carrow Road, and talks have stalled between a new contract, and it is thought Burnley, Bristol City, Leeds and Millwall are all interested in his services. However Leeds are likely to pull out seeing as they have other targets, and he may choose Millwall with the guarantee of first team football.

As we all now by now Roy Hodgson will be the new Liverpool manager and my source tells me that Brede Hangeland, Arda Turan, Bobby Zamora and Gilberto Silva will be on there way to Anfield.
Mascherano will be on his way out of Anfield so to will Albert Riera.The Homegrown players for next season will be..Steven Gerrard, Glen Johnson, Jamie Carraghar, Emilianio Insua, Dani Ayala, Dani Pachecho, Martin Kelly, Steven Darby(Spearing to be sold to hull or leicester)

"Hodgson to bring veterans Simon Davies and Murphy in from Fulham to mentor young squad players including targets Christian Eriksen from Ajax and Rene Krhin who could come to Liverpool as Lucas and Mascherano head to inter. Warnock looks likely to return to Anfield, while the unfancied Richards and Ireland will add to the British contingent as they are settled in the North West. Up front Hodgson likes a traditional centre forward and believes he can do for Carlton Cole what he has done for Fulham's talented former underachievers. My Stepmotherinlaw's cousin's hamster's former owner said none of this was true, but I'm not convinced. Rickynwa"

No.. I don't think Warnock is likely to return.. He was signed last summer and was a huge reason we had one of the best defenses in the EPL. Unless a bid of 10m was launched, don't expect him back. :)

"Arsenal tranfers. Joe cole free David James free And if arsenal take over happns we will sign young 22m minler 29

Again.. NONE of those will happen. Milner wants the wages of 90k+ which is why he's going to City instead of staying at Villa. Young has a higher chance of moving to West Ham.. Wenger's already tried to criticize him once by saying Villa plays the long ball after Young basically killed the crap out of Clichy all game. You have 0 chance of Yaya and 0 chance for Robinho.. James? He's off to Fulham if Schwarzer is sold and Cole is more likely off to Spurs.

Wenger's not going to spend. Doesn't matter if there's a take over or not. Wenger's always had 50m+ too spend and refuses. He thinks he's good or something. Last time he won he spent the money. Now he doesn't and he's failed.

Celtic are to announce Charlie Mulgrew today 1/7/2010 which was confirmed at the Q&A session with Peter Lawell.
Sol Campbell has said yesterday that he will take a good part of the month to think about Celtic's offer and should come back with a decision after his wedding and honeymoon. Cha Du Ri the South Korean wing back was to fly in yesterday I don't actually know if that happened hopefully someone could shed some light on this one but all should be tied up within the next week at most.
New rumour coming about at the early hours of the 1st of July is that Celtic may be looking at Chris Eagles, Burnley sources claimed this last night.

P.S. Daviebhoy any chance you could maybe expand on some of these.

A bit of transfer news from Birmingham and the Black Country:

ASTON VILLA:
Suprisingly enough, Villa are looking to sign four players. Goalkeeper Brad Friedel is in surely his last Premier League year, and West Ham's Robert Green is being looked at for around £10m. Newcastle defender Steven Taylor is another target, for around £2.8m. Spurs midfielder Jamie O'Hara's future is uncertain, but a £6m bid could go in for him, seeing as he is destined to depart White Hart Lane this summer. And then injuryplagued Brazilian forward Eduardo is another name being linked with Villa, the Arsenal man could come to Villa Park for around £8m.

BIRMINGHAM CITY:
Following the arrivals of Enrich Valles, Ben Foster and Nikola Zigic, just two more players are being lined up at St. Andrews. Martin Petrov's arrival at Bolton could see winger/fullback Matt Taylor's opportunities limited, and Blues are looking to capitalise. A £2m bid is expected. And another area they're looking to strengthen is up front. With only Cameron Jerome, Nikola Zigic, Garry O'Connor and Kevin Phillips, another striker is needed. Following the cooled interest in Mamelodi Sundowns and South Africa striker Katlego Mphela, Blues are to bid £6m for Fulham striker Bobby Zamora.

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS:
With six players already signed at Molineux, and fierce competition within the squad for the 25 players, Wolves have already stated that they expect to sign just one more player. Former loan star and midfielder/defender Michael Mancienne could be brought in either on loan again or permanently from Chelsea, with Wolves waiting for Chelsea's decision. If that move falls down however, Wolves will bid £1.8m for St.Etienne's powerhouse midfielder Guirane N'Daw to add steel to the midfield.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION:
Having just been promoted from the Championship, Albion have only signed three players this summer. However, another three signings are expected to be made. Sunderland goalkeeper Marton Fulop could be brought for around £3.3m, along with Stoke winger Liam Lawrence, with the Potters expected to sell for £1m, following his collapsed move to Celtic. And finally, former Portsmouth loan star targetman Frederic Piquionne is expected to sign on at the Hawthorns soon, with Lyon reportedly accepting a £1m from the Baggies.

Rumours in edinburgh tonight are that ivan sproule and michael hart will be revealed by the end of the week as hibs players.

Don't know of Michael Hart but I do know that Ivan Sproule won't be going back up north in the next week. He may well do in the coming weeks after Steve Coppell has had a look at him in preseason and doen't want to hold onto him.

Blair Mayne you are an absolute disgrace to Liverpool Football Club!

Will you please stop posting your rubbish! I am fed up of reading your terrible and inaccurate posts. If you live in Liverpool you would know that Liverpool is a rumour mad city but you would also know that Evertonians have been saying rubbish for years and years about our players! Robbie Fowler, Danny Agger and Gerrard! A new Gerrard rumour comes out regularly!

All this pregnancy NONSENSE can't you see it is just pathetic attempts to unsettle our captain further? They also happen to hate Rooney and that surfaces, hahaa pathetic bitters.

And you should actually know that Alex doesn't even have a sister. TAXI!

Aguero (not gonna say its a done deal cos it aint but its the most likely transfer to happen out of any ive heard on this site)
Ribery (yeh hes signed a five year contract with bayern but i have it on good authority tht it was only to raise his sale price)
Kaka (highly, highly unlikely but i wouldn't be surpised as he knows ancelotti's playing stlye would play to his strengths as a midfielder)

p.s to the dude that wrote the above, stop being a fcking leech.

the real TrueBlue012

YAWN zzzZZZ, WAKE UP MATE, AGUERO, RIBERY, KAKA?

MORE LIKE BENAYOUN, LUIZ AND ONE OR TWO YOUTH FOR THE ACADEMY.

Owen Coyle Has Moved Quickly To Try And Secure The Services Of Craig Bellamy. It Is Thought He Is Willing To Pay £8 Million For The Welshman And With The Arrival Of David Silva At Eastlands, Bellamys Future At Manchester City Looks Bleak.

Alright everyone, firstly, just to say thank you to Daviebhoy for his realistic and accurate reportings of possible moves to celtic. Its nice to see feasible rumours other than us signing Lukaku (as if!) and a raft of players our league.
Just to give my thoughts, I believe ChaDuRi, Campbell and Bullard will all sign by 7/7 as well as Mulgrew by Friday. I went to school with Mcgeady in Giffnock (no need for names) and have heard through a mutual friend that Martin O'Neill and Davie Moyes are both enquiring about taking him to england with Aston Villa his preferred choice. Cash plus player swap from both. Also expect an audacious bid Holland DM Orlando Engelaar. Pretty random but his name has been mentioned around parkhead.

Cheers,

hoopy

I have it on very good authority, that despite interest from curbishley, Mark Hughes will be new Fulham manager. No question. at 4/1 for job, worth £100 on it. Trust me!

News concerning investment at Norwich City. I was at the Royal Norfolk Show today and Norwich City FC always attend with players and staff. I spoke to a member of the 'staff' and he told me that Ciarn O'Keeffe from the Most Haunted show was keen on chucking some money into the Norwich City pot, as he was local lad and is a life long fan.

My cousin lives in Madrid and the word around Madrid is that Barcelona have told Cesc that Torres is their priority and if they cannot shift Ibrahimovic then they will try and buy him next season.

I know Madrid is not Barcelona but nonetheless its a rumour which i thought i should share. Expect Fabregas to start backtracking and telling everyone he loves Arsenal and may decide to stay. I cannot wait to see his face next season after Chelsea stuff Arsenal at the Emirates. Trapped in a team and country that he does not want to be in.
