CCFC news! Big news for Sky Blues fans Adams will look to bring in 3 players with money earned from McSheffrey deal. 1 striker is a definate as is a keeper but he might roll out 2 strikers and a GK expect to see bids or interest in Trundle, McLeod, Adam Boyd maybe even Mellor on 1 year loan. Keeper wise could be Fulop or Camp
Hargreaves IS NOT COMING to Manchester United. Aceept it and move on. The Senna deal is also dead. So expect a quick and high bid for Mascherano by early next week. No time left to bargain or negotiate. 1st offer takes it or not.
MAN U NEWS>>>>>
Despite the rumours that SAF is tailing Inter Milan striker Adriano, I know it's 90% untrue. SAF knows better about any strikers than anybody else and how can he go for a player who likes to shoot only from distance and doesn't know how to give passes to other players. Probably he (Adriano) is the most selfish player in the world I've ever seen (i know many of you have the same opinion). So, people, stop linking Adriano with MAN U . Adriano is out of SAF's hit list. After the completion of Hargreaves' move, SAF is going for any of the "T"s. that means either TORRES or TEVEZ or TONI. Also Mascherano may come to OT before the transfer window closes.
Real Madrid have now agreed a deal for Diarra of lyon a massive cut price than the actual asking price which lyon wanted. Fabio Cappelo wants to sign Riquilme and reyes by next week. Also Real Madrid recently launched a bid for klaas jan huntelaar and will sign by next week. Also Cristiano Ronaldo may sign in the january transfer window if he is still unsetteled in england. And finally brazalian hot shot Kerlon will sign a deal with real madrid as man united have lost intrest and when he signs he will be loaned to sporton lisbon or aston villa. watch this space

Man utd - Hargreaves will sign but not till next week or even closer to the deadline because bayern are determined to keep him but only hargreaves resolute desire to join united will mean he has to put in a transfer request soon. Torres is long term target but may not come till jan or next year. Tevez is too similar player to rooney and fergie wants an out an out striker and target man similar to van nistelrooy - basically a goal scorer. United till i die!
It is rumoured that after his performances against manchester united in the Amsterdam Quaresma(porto) maybe a potential target for SAF in the january transfer maket incase the situation with Ronaldo gets any worse at united. Porto though regard the player as an essential part of the team and it could cost as much as £12. Another target for SAF is Anderson who also impressed in the Amsterdam tournament. Senna cannot move to Manutd bcause Manutd have stalled their offer for the spanish international so they are no longer willing to sell him and hope he signs a contract extension. Hargreaves may also be unable to come to Manutd because Bayern are so relecutant to sell. Though SAF would not mind biding as much as £15mil 2 bring the England midfielder to Old Trafford as an ideal raplacement for Keane.
Newcastle will not be buying woodgate, gravesen or martins and will instead be looking at Kezman (had a tough time with Chelsea but is still a top class goalscorer), Kerzhakov, Collins John and Klose, although GR will be more interested in Kerzhakov, who is 23 and Collins John, because they are younger. Roeder also wants Bridge and a center back, who may be Lopo from espanyol or van buyten from Hamburg. .
Newcastle team 06/07
Luque (will be given more of a chance since injuries have subsided and half decent pre-season form with 3 goals in 4 matches, 4 in 5 including shearers testimonial)
I still think newcastle should be looking to sign young players from the continent to build for the future, although the players coming from the youth team such as pattison, o'brien, krul, huntington and edgar are exciting prospects
Fulham will sign West Bromwich Albions Jason Koumas in exchange for Tomasz Radzinski
Moritz Volz has rejected a new deal drom Fulham and will be sold to Portsmouth for 3million pounds.
Man united will not sign another player in this transfer window,why:
Senna-Has stated recently, he will not join because united have shown a lack of desire to sign him by turning all their attentions to hargreaves and he is happy in spain.
Hargreaves-Bayern will not sell.
Huntelaar-no club in the world will sign him for the next two seasons.
Torres- we all know why.
Killer Klasnic from Werder Bremen will be signed for 5m, not Klose; and Nugent for 4m. Gravesen for 1.5m and Bridge for 4m with only one leaving, Boumsong for 3m.

chelsea will dominate onxce agen but run out of money soon and will open the doors for man u liverpool n arsenal and i must say arsenal look the most promising with there youngsters and have a promising future
p.s CMONNNN BORO. . . .
There are going to be two big managerial cuts next season and they are Jose morinho and Alex ferguson. Firstly the board of chelsea has lost confidence in the way that jose manages and the manchester united board do not think a league cup and fa cup is good enough and are looking to bring in marcello lippi as a replacement.
Billy Sharpe will complete a 450k move to COVENTRY next week, in time for him to play against Hull on Saturday. Also expect Fulop to join the day spurs buy a new keeper. Adams is also considering a 3rd bid for Leon McKenzie. If Norwich reject this Adams will pull out the deal. El Idrrissi has been told he will have his contract extended to the end of the season if he can perform to the same level he did against the Foxes on Saturday against Hull. So expect him to start.
emre will reject all offers to leave as he feels the club are on the verge of something big under glenn roeder. stability and guidance is what the good ship newcastle has at the moment;as for valencia they are quickly faltering on the pitch and off it. meanwhile besiktas will have a certain graeme souness as next manger if tigana is scked as expected in october. the listed club has full coffers to the tune of 20 million dollars for transfer targets. watch this space
Norwich striker Leon McKenzie subject of 2 bids of £500k bids from Coventry. After the sale of Green, and the cash from the sale of the under-acheiving LM, City should have a bit of cash to spend on a target man, a left back (cover for Drury) and a back-up keeper. Watch this space.
