Gers fans one of the agreements danny Wilson left was that gers would get first refusal on N'gog(loan)pending on ther sinings. (fact) (super Ally) Roy would love him to pick up games and champ league would sharpen him for there title challenge nxt season.utaka goodwillie sign. Obertan (loan) too. goodsource. wullie.

Not quite true mate. Rangers have actually asked for Della Valle and one of Kelly or Darby on loan. If any of these players are sent on loan then Rangers will have first option if they can agree personal terms.(8)(10)

huntelaar arriving at manchester airport does not automatically mean he is only having talks with manchester clubs. possibly in for talks with liverpool.

this makes absolutely no sense if he was having talks with a club in liverpool im pretty sure he'd fly to lennon airport!(21)(7)

Well here is my view on some of the rumours posted here:

Didier Drogba He's staying, don't worry Chelsea fans. He is better than Steven Gerrard at their age of 32 and yet there were rumours of Stevie G going for £30million+ and yet Drogba apparently going for just £18million!?? I don't think so.

Steven Gerrard Staying for definite. He lovea Liverpool too much to go and has said he would like to stay.

Fernando Torres Staying because Gerrard is. Even if Gerrard left, I'm not sure if he'd go anyway as he says he wouldn't play for another English club to Liverpool so that rules out Chelsea and Manchester City. Barcelona don't want him as they have enough players in his position. Torres hates Benitez and Real Madrid so won't go to Inter or Real and finally noone else can afford him.

Loic Remy Going to West Ham at the moment, unless Liverpool bid the same as the London Club (£8.4million). There is no other team in the running to get him; Remy's agent just said that to get him to go to Liverpool quicker as that is where Remy, his agent and Nice want him to go.

Mesut Oezil He isn't going to Manchester United. They aren't buying anyone else this transfer window at least. I reckon he could go to Real or just stay put.

Mario Balotelli Going to Manchester City for a fee of between £2835million, possibly will be announced even tomorrow. I'm 90% sure of this.

Javier Mascherano As a Liverpool fan, I hate to say this but he is probably going to Inter Milan. I'm 90% sure of this. Liverpool have said they have had no contact from Inter but they always say that e.g. Xabi Alonso with Real. Now the fee could be £2535million or £1015million plus Davide Santon or Samuel Eto'o or Rene Khrin or a combination of these players.

Whats your opinion of my views Editor? {editor's note – I think you might have it wrong on Remy, Nice just want someone to pay the money up front and are trying to strong arm the Hammers into doing so by making it seem like others are interested. The other team that might come in for him are Arsenal, not Liverpool, and I think he would prefer a move to Arsenal anyway.}(10)(11)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:49:19
Please post as will happen remy will come to arsenal he said last year how much he loved wenger.I was rite about eduardo and am 100% sure of this. I personally wan mertersacker and ozil. P.s editor who do u support(3)(11)

PLYMOUTH RUMOUR
lee molyneux to be signed by peter reid after being released by southampton, lee told my son in huyton lpool yesterday, true
LFC FAN(4)(6)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:54:48
Ed what do u make of this rumour of Huntleaar at Manchester Airport. UNited or City? Fergie said only yest he prob won't sign anyone and city have a few strikers anyway and are looking at others like Dzeko and Balotelli. Maybe he couldnt get a flight to another airport in that part of england. maybe liverpool or villa? {editor's note – hasn't Fergie been chasing Huntelaar for a few years? Only they seem the most likely team, though it is always possible it is Liverpool or Everton as both clubs need a striker.}(7)(6)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:55:44
Firstly,

In Huntelaar story is picked up by several other websites, I cannot see how it can be United, as we are currently based in the US. Although stranger things have happened, but here is my theory, balotelli apparently has been pushing for the move to Manchester United over Manchester City, 1. is his close Italy under 21 and personal friend Kiko Macheda

well if your gunna use that logic on balotelli, i feel its necessary to point out that balotelli is also close friends with fabio borini (chelsea)(5)(9)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:40:29
Ed, any PNE news/rumours please? {editor's note – I have been told that your money problems are about to be all sorted, I don't know much about them though, so I have absolutely no idea what that could mean!}(8)(3)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:41:24
Stoke city closing in on cole and noble from west ham combined fee 13m
obinna, figeuroa/tiene and o neil/o hara/bentley will also probably sign
ED wot have you heard on these and have you any other news truthfully ?? {editor's note – the Cole move I have heard, the Hammers feel his injury problems will cause his value to plummet if they don't sell soon. Stoke think they can get round them like they have with Fuller.}(3)(11)

 20 Jul 2010 22:42:57
More of an opinion than a rumour, I can't see newcastle signing Killian Brennan when the guy is 26 and unproven at a decent level. I'm all for the toon bringing talent in but I don't see them taking big risks which this could possibly be.

Toonfreak87(4)(8)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:43:00
This is just an opinion..SAF is just saying he won't sign any further players to deflect away the media attention and rival bids coming from other clubs. In truth I think he will sign 1, maybe 2 players. I also think Vidic will Join Real Madrid. Just opinion.(8)(7)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:45:46
Hi Ed, was just looking through the player sightings, what do you think of Salcido, Personally I think he would be a cracking buy for left back have you herd anything?
thanks Sam {editor's note – I haven't heard of any concrete interest in him.}(3)(6)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:30:09
To the saints fan who slated the scottish league for bein rubbish.. its strange that arsenal r bein linked with half the ajax squad with the dutch league bein of such a poor quality. scottish football might not be at its peak compared to the oh so great epl but were a great league for young players to get first team football and to make a name for themselves on top of that theres very few epl clubs that offer european football in front of 60,000 fanatical home fans
jamie ohara went to portsmouth and done well celtic would be a good move for him the other lot couldnt afford his bus ticket as for bellamy as far as ive heard hes 80% sure for celtic hes sick of the epl and is quoted as sayin he would come back to celtic
the horrible lot across town will sign harewood but conway and goodwillie are never goin to happen bougy is goin to newcastle for 5 millionish after they sell taylor to liverpool and mcgregor will go to arsenal for 2.5 million hes dissilusioned with life at rangers and thinks hes made for bigger things
celtic will win the league by a country mile and hearts will pip rangers to second(12)(77)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:30:11

 20 Jul 2010 22:34:23
Arsenal have expressed there interest in remy(9)(11)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:35:27
And to clarify the remy situation

remys asking price is 8.5 million up front and 3 million in add ons

west ham wanted to pay 5.5 million up front with 3 million being paid next season and 3 million in bonuses

Liverpool, remy preferred destination, have NOT made a bid for the player yet but would be willing to agree with nices price for remy

Arsenal havent made a bid yet, but expect them to make a bid, after eduardo goes.

if liverpool and arsenal both bid for remy, expect him to go to liverpool, but others may argue that

wenger is french as is a few of the arsenal team, that will help him settle in

arsenal have the best training facility's

wenger has a track record of turning nobodys into world class players, henry, van persie , veria, clichy, cole, sagna etc etc

DAN YNWA :)



And there is also the fact that in the past he has said he wants to go to Arsenal(9)(6)

Even though I am a lifelong RED, here is the latest concerning Torres and Chelsea: 2 bids of 40million and 50million have already been rejected by Liverpool.
Unfortunatley, backroom staff at Chelsea are still confident of getting him. As a Liverpool fan I hopw this is not true.
Chelsea are looking to bringing in 1 big transfer this summer and 1 small transfer, that being an English player.
Also Benayoun has been telling everyone at Chelsea that players at LFC wanted and expected Benitez to be sacked after every defeat, and that Benitez had lost the faith of the players and the staff, even before December of last season.(12)(11)

Celtic news

Aiden mcgeady is off to villa for 10m and looks like Bellamy is on his way, Lawrence expects to complete a 2m from stoke, David james could also be on his way. Jimmy bullard is a no go and so is Sol campbell.

To all the doubters, Craig Bellamy is VERY possible.

Too the deluded mad fker who sed this West Ham are to sign Newcastle's Ryan and Steven Taylor for a combined fee of £10m steven taylor has been linked to club for 8M would not combine a fee with ryan taylor for a extra 2, also the only reason he was thought to leave was because of the caroll bust up and he has came out ans said he can play on the same team.

1. un realistic fee
2. s taylor will soon sign new contract
3. r taylor wants to battle for his possision
4. why would a local lad 's taylor' who has suppported newcastle all his life want to be in a dog fight for another club.(4)(8)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:27:26
liverpool fc have offered kyrgiakos for transfer to european clubs now that they have signed danny wilson from rangers.

also leaving, will be albert riera, who is on the verge of joining olympiakos.

following on from the imminent signing of serbian left back kolarov, manchester city will also be announcing the signing of mario balotelli for approximately £35m.

roman pavlyuchenko will be joining sporting lisbon. a deal has been agreed between the two clubs, leaving the russian to agree personal terms.

sevilla fc will make an offer for mikel arteta very shortly

cronitax(14)(7)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:27:40
I really hope Loic Remy does NOT come to arsenal. in any case, eduardo's imminent departure does not signal an opening for a new striker to arrive. instead it gives carlos vela the chance to shine. probably his last chance too, though its not really his fault he hasnt had the chances. to repeat, signing remy would NOT be desirable.

Why do Arsenal fans think they are getting another striker? They have already signed Chamakh which means they have Chamah, Van Persie, Bendtner and Eduardo, as well as Walcott and Arshavin who can fill in, not to mention the young guns, I think it's highly unlikely that Wenger will go for another striker now.

Well it is highly likely we are because Eduardo s leaving for Shakthar Donetsk and also one of sky sports sources and reporters Fraser Robertson announced as I wrote earlier that Arsenal are in talks with Nice to sign Loic Remy(8)(15)

Charlton news


ones that should go
Dickson 1 million
sam sodje 350k leeds
basey Scotland maybe hibs 350k


simon Francis southend free
york city striker 300k
dave Mooney reading 400k
lee Wallace hearts 500k
tony warner free gk
bauzu free Swansea
parry preston 300k


Dickson is no longer a charlton player and is available on a free transfer. Sam Sodje has signed for a Greek team on a bosman. Basey is out of contract. He has offered a new contract on reduced terms; meaning we wouldn't even get a penny if he goes to an english club. As it stands though he is on trail at Aberdeen.

Bauzu and Francis are looking likely I'll give you those.(4)(14)

MAN UTD NEWS
I was reading something intereting about Klaas Jan Huntelaar on Goal.com and it claimed, according to Talksport, that he is in MANCHESTER and that he is set to hold talks with Utd or City. I am a MUFC fan but i don't believe this as Fergie has already said he is not signing anyone and with City signing Super Mario i can't help feeling that he is going to Liverpool. I feel it would make sense aswell, after seeing on the news that there has been floods in Liverpool so maybe they diverted the flight to Manchester but i hope he signs for UTD.(13)(15)

 

 20 Jul 2010 22:00:35

Huntellar is on his way to Man Utd! TalkSport have said that he has arrived at Manchester Airport, and with Man City already having 5 strikers and Balotelli on his way..it is logical to assume he is heading for talks with the Man Utd board. Expect Balotelli to be a Man City player by Monday, as well as Aleksander Kolarov with a £18m bid accepted which will finally spark Javier Mascherano's move from Liverpool to Inter Milan. Liverpool want Davide Santon and Rene Krhin is any deal so expect a £20m plus the two players to be accepted. Roy Hodgson is looking at Steven Defour, Scott Parker, Ever Banega and Anthony Annan as a replacement. Arda Turan is also wanted at Liverpool by Kenny Dalglish. Danny Wilson is set for a medical tomorrow. Loic Remy will sign for Liverpool next week if a suitable installment method can be found.(22)(21)

 

 20 Jul 2010 21:46:41
Ed, any news about Valter Birsa of Auxerre and Slovenia. Looked a decent player in the world cup, has a great left foot. Would be a good signing for any midtable prem club, I'd say.

And I can't see him costing too much, either. {editor's note – I haven't heard of anyone looking at him at all.}(11)(7)

 

 20 Jul 2010 21:29:45
Sir Alex today said he was happy with his squad , well on that basis maybe the rumour he has also booked United's end of season party for the end of February is also true. The other interesting rumour is that he has lost his edge in the transfer market. One or two around the club think he had his fingers burnt with Hargreaves, Anderson and particularly Berbaflop so he has literally lost confidence. Take Ozil, followed closely by Fergie when the German was a teenager and he even tried to sign him then , the boss even nicknamed him "the ghost" for the way he played. Now he is in the last year of his contract and the price would likely be less than £20M with wages well within reach, yet potentially he will miss out on him. I dismissed the loss of confidence rumour at first but the signs are there. The boss is under terrible pressure from the Glazers to get it right as Season ticket/corporate sales are badly down but I wonder if the boss has shrunk into his shell. He won't listen to anyone and if he isn't a bit more bold this summer this season could be his last. Let us hope this is just his way of negotiating a lower price for someone and there is no truth in the bottled it rumour.

To all the lfc fans. you people are saying that remy wants to join you. he only wants to join you because so far it is only between you and west ham and you guys are better which is why he is saying he wants to join you. but if you remember before the transfer window he publicly said that his preference is arsenal over lyon(who were linked with him at the time). if we came into the bidding(which we are as eduardo has gone. arsenal officials to meet nice official tommorow) remy would want to join us as we are his 1st choice so don't get happy because arsenal are gonna get him instead.(11)(17)

 

 20 Jul 2010 21:39:23
Just before you all start slating me, stick with me because there are certain signs that you need to follow which i have stated before and have come true. I said Joe Cole would sign in May because Rafa said he would be looking to sign more English players, and Gerrard said he was a quality player and wanted to play with him ( in effect Cole agreed to come to LFC during the world cup due to Gerrard and Carragher persuading him) and I also said the Danny Wilson deal would go through due to his affection for the club and because of Kenny's desire to bring in young british talent.
Now onto future transfers
Loic Remy 9 Million possibly rising to 12.5
Roy Hodgson claimed he didn't know anything about him but Loic had been recommended to him, this means nothing, Hodgson has very little to do with the transfers, Christian Purslow is in control of transfers and he has been recieving scout reports for the past few months about him and a deal will soon be tied up for him.
Ever Banega 9 Million Replacement for Mascherano this is a similar transfer to Remy's, Banega was a target before Hodgson but Purslow is heading the Transfer ship.
Davide Santon Exchange for Mascherano 22 Million + Santon will see the ungreatful Mascherano he will be first choice left back with Wilson and Agger providing back up. Not my first choice because out of the three none of them are natural left backs.

No News on the takeover does anyone?
Give me your thoughts Ed and Others I am prepared to reply.

Firstly to all the Man U fans that keep saying we are not getting Obertan, thank feck he is pash. What I do think Rangers will get is Conway and Goodwillie from dundee utd. Also in the look out for a centre midfielder and the name i have heard getting batted about is Kevin McDonald from burnley. He signed a 3 year contract in 2008 so will be available for a small fee as they only paid 250,000 rising to 500,000. He is a boyhood rangers fan and would be a good ddition to the squad(37)(27)

With Eduardo moving to Shaktar Donetsk expect Wenger to move for Remy as a direct replacement.

Frey is likely to be the keeper joining the Gunners for around £6m

Fabregas to stay for one more year

One more Centre Half to be targeted by Wenger, possibly Zapata, Cahill or Mexes.

Starting XI next season..
Frey/Fabianski
Sagna/Eboue
Clichy/Gibbs
Vermaelen/Djourou
Cahill/Koscielny
Denilson/Song
Walcott/Ramsey
Fabregas/Diaby
Arshavin/Nasri
Van Persie/Bendtner
Chamakh/Remy

Diaby to come in for Walcott for games against the big clubs and Arsenal to play 451..(26)(39)

 

 20 Jul 2010 21:06:36
Why do Arsenal fans think they are getting another striker? They have already signed Chamakh which means they have Chamah, Van Persie, Bendtner and Eduardo, as well as Walcott and Arshavin who can fill in, not to mention the young guns, I think it's highly unlikely that Wenger will go for another striker now.

LIVERPOOL Wilson to Liverpool is far from a done deal but does look likely, Roy is hoping he will provide cover at left back as well as centre. He is also looking at Bridge, dependent on City's willingness to sell, or if that fails, Ziegler.(54)(26)

 

 20 Jul 2010 21:07:35
Firstly,

In Huntelaar story is picked up by several other websites, I cannot see how it can be United, as we are currently based in the US. Although stranger things have happened, but here is my theory, balotelli apparently has been pushing for the move to Manchester United over Manchester City, 1. is his close Italy under 21 and personal friend Kiko Macheda, who is very close, has been sounding Super Mario out about the move. Balotelli's agent is pushing for the move to City, Given what he will earn etc. Plus it's known A.C Milan are after Robinho, so could it be possible city could be getting Huntelaar as a back up striker? As think Blaotelli to Utd or City is 50/50 at this point. No news on Nini's last I heard there was some hold up over fee's paid for appearance's etc. but be good to hear feedback Mr Editor. Also as a utd fan, I think liverpool have struck a coup in Joe Cole, think he can be a great signing.(24)(23)

Just heard from a m8 who works in germany that ozil is going to munich as he sees the premiership as a league to hard for him at his age also.As i am a united fan i have heard from rumours inside the club that we have got NO MONEY and fergueson is annoyed and will reitire at the end of the season as he can not work with the glazers.

Correct that united have no money and as i have been telling you on here for months no major signings.
First time EVER season tickets have been discounted in price due to the sheer lack of uptake, exec facilities are being offered to every business in manchester and fergie will not retirehe needs the money(can't say more then that)..
Fergie will save up his anger for a final book which will be explosive, what a shame for the most succesfull manager ever for it to end this way..and no champions league football 2011/12were not good enough..(22)(26)

IN RESPONSE TO.

20 Jul 2010 18:55:42
Christian Purslow has been in contact with Aston Villa regarding the purchase of Steven Warnock. He has been quoted a price of £11m. He has also offered a contract to a young Arsenal left back who is available on a free transfer, I think his name is Gilbert. Mick Fordy.

Who is this GILBERT MICK FORDY? Ed Any insider info?

Stephen Warnock back to LFC is a no go. LFC can't be seen to sell a player for approx 3million in 2007, only to buy him back from Martin "add a zero" O'Neill for 11million 3 years later. Wayne Bridge seems like the realistic option, especially if MCFC buy the Serb left back.(25)(25)

 

 20 Jul 2010 20:44:11
Basically anybody who states "we have so many million left after the sales of" is talking rubbish.

My club, Arsenal have over 100 million in cash and available liquid asset, so putting a figure on how much they will spend is absolutely ridiculous.

Its of course possible Wenger may spend another 1015 million but who knows what he will do he doesn't even know himself as he will not pay over the odds.

Remy is not going to happen either Wenger would have bought him last summer if he wanted him before he became back page gossip.

I'd guarantee another signing at either CB or GK though I think ideally he'd like both but it all depends on getting better than what we have at a reasonable price.

There might be 3 people on this site who actually create a rumor rather than recycle it at least make it believable.(13)(21)

Could anyone tell me about any Burnley transfer news(4)(6)

 

 20 Jul 2010 20:30:11
If Mascherano goes (highly likely) there will be no direct replacement. There will be no need for one. Liverpool will revert to 442 and the central midfield pairing will be Gerrard & Lucas with Aquilani and squad players as backup.

All Liverpool need now is a dependable quality left back and cover. There is now more than enough quality options/combinations on the two flanks and up top.

If anything we will be offloading more senior players over the next few weeks and buying more youngsters (like Wilson).(37)(19)

Liverpool Fc Transfer Rumours!..
Albert Riera Olympikos linked with him and are
strongly interested..lfc quoted price of £6 million..

David Ngog West Brom extremely interested but Rangers might want to take him on loan to cover up crisis

Phillip Degen Will not be sold as he will provide cover for Johnson and Roy has been impressed with his work ethic in training!..

Javier Mascherano Every Liverpool fan hopes this will get resolved asap because we are sick of him constantly wanting a move. Expect a bid from Internazionale as soon as Mario Balotelli is sold to either of the Manchester clubs.

Possible Ins.
Reto Zeigler This one has caught some pace during the past few weeks as liverpools left back situation is gathering some momentum!..He would be a welcome addition for roy!..

Arda Turan This player has his heart set on a move to the club of his dreams. He would provide competition for joe cole as well as maxi and dirk kuyt. This transfer will only happen if the left back position gets cleared up and a new striker is brought in. We live in hope for this one!!!.

Loic Remy This player has earned rave reviews and lfc are amongst numerous clubs in the race for his signature. West Ham United The Gunners and Spurs all want him but he will head merseyside if liverpool decide to bid for him. Hopefully with this one also!.

Now that's all from the rumours circulating around the club at rhe moment.I havnt wrote some riduclous rumours that some people like to write on here..Most are realistic targets for roy and if money from transfers out come in you may see some of them players come into Melwood!!..hugh!.YNWA!!(23)(24)

craig bellamy (and im not saying he is going to i just think they have a good chance)

As a dundee united fan i have no reason to lie about the following news:

CHELSEA are targeting Bastian Schweinsteiger and Marek Hamsik but only 1 of these will be coming in. Plus one more proven striker, but not a huge name, possibly cacau.

MAN UTD will not be bringing in anyone else this summer and will sell carrick but that is all that will happen.

ARSENAL are targeting steklenburg, schwarzer and hart for the vacant keeper position and hazard. Fabregas will leave.

LIVERPOOL look to sign coentrao, wilson, figouaroa, klose and carroll very soon. WHEN mascherano leaves khedira will sign as a replacment, expect a busy summer @ anfield!

I have many reliable sources who get many things right. More teams to come soon.

Arsenal Fc will not sell Francesc Fabregas unless are forced to if he hands in a transfer request or Barcelona meet the required asking price for the player. Mr Wenger doesn't want a player who doesn't have his heart committed to the club. Also whether Fabregas stays or goes, Phillippe Mexes and Stekelenburg will most probably be signed. As Eduardo da Silva is looking to be on his way out to Shaktar Donetsk, Loic Remy is also being considered by Arsene as he is a long time admirer of who is claimed to be the next Thierry Henry. Yohann Gourcuff doesn't seem a great possibility to be signed by arsenal now as they are looking to the likes of Mesut Ozil to replace Fabregas if he does decide to leave the club.

mano menezes, the current manager of corinthians is set to become the new manager of the brazilian national team.

To this guy
20 Jul 2010 19:35:25
News Flash ! Back Down To Earth Time

liverpool are so broke they can't afford a 12.5 bid for remy. (nice, want 8.5 million upfront with 3 million in bonuses get your facts right, plus hodgson has 15 million at his disposal plus what ever he gets from sales, mascherano, benayoun 5.5 million, san jose 2.5 million so try 23 million excluding mascherano sale which will probably fetch between 20 28 million less if a player is involved)
ozil is not going to man united as being one of the best players at the world cup will keep him way out of man u grasp budget wise. (plus man city have to be already sniffing around ozil offering him 150k a week) (that is false arsenal will get him)
wenger just sold eduardo, but why ? hes going to sign remy that's why. (no he isnt)
big mistake by liverpool not adding him to there ranks i can tell you torres being only proper striker on his own is killing him and as we see with n gog last season hes not good enough to fill in when torres on the bench.(ngog got 10 goals last season, not bad for him)
suarez will not goto man u either, in fact if anyone does goto man u it will be players that you do not expect. (no one else will go to united)
looks like man city lost out on dzeko and ballotelli.
i bet cheslea will end up with ballotelli and possibly kaka as like man city they have a mega rich owner and when they enquire about a player its christmas come early for the club about to make a sale.
last of all spurs , well i think harry has done a great job but getting into the champions league , could lead to an early exit and poor PL campian.
he could sign the likes of forlan , huntelar , fabino but he will not because although spurs have champions league football they do not give out champions league wages and put the club at risk cash wise.

(harry couldnt sign the likes of forlan, huntelaar and fabiano regardless, because of other clubs interested in them)

i do back harry to come up with a good deal to help out the club as he a great wheeler dealer.(who puts
clubs in debt, portsmouth, southampton to name a few)i do back wenger to not quite spend enough to win the title but still have a good season.
i do back hodgson to buy some players around the 5 mil mark and turn them into players worth 12 to 18 mil and liverpool will fight hard for 4th palce this season.
i do back man u to spend pretty much nothing else unless a player is sold and still win the title or come follow up to chelsea like last season

Rangers outs:

Boyd Free (would 'free' up around 12,000 wages)
Novo Free (8,000 wages)
Beasley Free (12,000 wages)
Smith Free (5,000 wages)
Thomson £2million (8,000 wages)
Wilson £2million now (wages would be low)

The bank/owners want the wage structure lowered substantially but with alot of players leaving, this may be put on hold for now (either that or substadised by tranfer money) Mcgregor could leave to either fulham or benfica for around 2.5million. Velicka is the only player rangers are actively trying to sell although offers will be scarce with his lack of fitness and first team football for the last 2 years. With at least 4million in and a reported 4million that was already on offer to smith, rangers will be looking to bring in new players. Around 50,000 wages freed up (the eagles saga suggests that's not all on offer though).

Coming in could be:

Michael Ball former rangers player is now a free agent and could provide competition at left back, as well as allowing papac to fill in at centre back if needed.

Jose Goncalves he has already claimed to have held talks with rangers. Im a fan of this guy but not sure if he would be good enough, either way, this is a rumour that has been on the go for a while.

James McAurther Similarily, i like him but would rather he go to wigan as we don't need him and don't want us to waste what little money we have on a benchwarmer.

Brett Holman he has an eye for goal this guy, would probably just be a loan but could be another davis/fleck. Prefers to play in an advanced central role but with rangers shape, he probably wouldn't fit in our system.

Michael Tonge Out of favour at his club and could get a decent deal. Havent seen much of him recently but from what ive heard, when hes good hes very good but when hes bad hes a passenger n prone to vital errors.

Marlon Harewood the most recent rumour i heard. This seems genuine as ive heard this from so many different sources (many of the papers, bbc, sky etc). Would be free, but wages may be a stumbling block once more. I would love him to sign but it looks as if he could be going to join oleary in the middle east.

The other rumours that have been circling are the ones like: Conway, Goodwillie, riordan, reynolds and we took the young scandanavian on loan.

Either way, rangers need to bring in 3 or 4 faces to give us a strong pool of 1819 players. To bulk up the squad, murray park will be called on to prove itself once more by providing Wylde, Ness, Gallagher (should mcgregor leave) and little.(35)(35)

These are all the most likely / definite transfers to be happening in the coming weeks

arsenal = 1 more cb vertenghon or mexes (mertesacker ha don't make me laugh, this will never happen) and a gk gregory coupet or schwatzer and possibly loic remy

chelsea = aguero to be rapped up in the next few weeks, lukaku has made it clear there is only one club he wants to be at, will be next season or possibly in the winter transfer season

liverpool = djbril cisse almost certain he will be heading back other than that have no idea apart from the definite signing of a lb

man utd = sorotris ninis (definite) other than that no other signings will be made all this talk of a replacement cb for vidic is bull, fergie already has like 6 others to choose from

inter milan = mascherano (definite)

barcelona = fabregas (this season or next)

athletico madrid = franco di santo

real madrid = bruno alves or david luiz(18)(25)

"Was at anfield earlier on visitin me auntie and 2 black cars pulled up and Jesus Navas ot out of one with another person obviously agent and Rafael Van Der vart out of the other. Wat do yuu tink?"

This is what i think

a. that is stupid, you must be under the influence of drugs

b. it wouldn't be at anfield it would be at melwood.

c. would it kill you, to at least type properly

d. people like you and your silly stories give us liverpool fans a bad name, go back to playing football manager you silly little boy.

and to clarify the remy situation

remys asking price is 8.5 million up front and 3 million in add ons

west ham wanted to pay 5.5 million up front with 3 million being paid next season and 3 million in bonuses

Liverpool, remy preferred destination, have NOT made a bid for the player yet but would be willing to agree with nices price for remy

Arsenal havent made a bid yet, but expect them to make a bid, after eduardo goes.

if liverpool and arsenal both bid for remy, expect him to go to liverpool, but others may argue that

wenger is french as is a few of the arsenal team, that will help him settle in

arsenal have the best training facility's

wenger has a track record of turning nobodys into world class players, henry, van persie , veria, clichy, cole, sagna etc etc

My sources that I am in contact with have given me good info before and believe me although it's gone quiet, behind the scenes dd has been completed and, shiek Mohammed has completed, whilst someone from abu dhabi is in the process of due diligence.

News Flash ! Back Down To Earth Time

liverpool are so broke they can't afford a 12.5 bid for remy.
ozil is not going to man united as being one of the best players at the world cup will keep him way out of man u grasp budget wise. (plus man city have to be already sniffing around ozil offering him 150k a week)
wenger just sold eduardo, but why ? hes going to sign remy that's why.
big mistake by liverpool not adding him to there ranks i can tell you torres being only proper striker on his own is killing him and as we see with n gog last season hes not good enough to fill in when torres on the bench.
suarez will not goto man u either, in fact if anyone does goto man u it will be players that you do not expect.
looks like man city lost out on dzeko and ballotelli.
i bet cheslea will end up with ballotelli and possibly kaka as like man city they have a mega rich owner and when they enquire about a player its christmas come early for the club about to make a sale.
last of all spurs , well i think harry has done a great job but getting into the champions league , could lead to an early exit and poor PL campian.
he could sign the likes of forlan , huntelar , fabino but he will not because although spurs have champions league football they do not give out champions league wages and put the club at risk cash wise.

i do back harry to come up with a good deal to help out the club as he a great wheeler dealer.
i do back wenger to not quite spend enough to win the title but still have a good season.
i do back hodgson to buy some players around the 5 mil mark and turn them into players worth 12 to 18 mil and liverpool will fight hard for 4th palce this season.
i do back man u to spend pretty much nothing else unless a player is sold and still win the title or come follow up to chelsea like last season(13)(18)

 20 Jul 2010 18:56:32
Just a few general points on a variety of subjects. Feel free to comment if interested.

1. Firstly Rangers fan's, you are not getting Obertan, either on loan or permanent.

2. I do seriously think that Liverpool will be a contender for 4th or even 3rd this season. I know a lot of you don't rate Joe Cole and we all suspect he's gone to you for the money. But he must have had some guarantee's about starting and position, we know Roy is a good manager and not an idiot, and i have a sneaky feeling he might do alight for you. Couple more shrewd signings and you are in contention.

3. To the Forest/ Palace and any other Championship fans who think they are signing Albrighton from Villa for between 600k 1 million, not going to happen, i know someone who played in the same youth team and mentioned these rumours to him. There is a possibilty of a loan to a Midlands based Championship side but that's it.

4. Someone earlier said that Chelsea were strengthening. Are they? Deco, Ballack, J Cole, Belleti all out and replaced with Benayoun and a lot of unknown kids with no real experience, not exactly stronger are they? These kids might be good, and Kukuta does look promising but that's 4 experienced squad men gone and not replaced.

5. As for this rubbish from Ferguson about not signing anyone its typical Ferguson media mind games. Does it al the time and then does the opposite, its called reverse psychology. Example, from last season, Champions League quarter final 2nd leg, "Wayne Rooney will play no part in this game" 24 hours Wayne Rooney is in the starting line up. Ferguson knows United lack a quality attacking mid, you don't win 11 league titles and 2 Champions Leagues by being an idiot. God knows who but anyone from Ninis, Jovetic, Henrique etc etc. i do agree with the theory that he's waiting for City to shut the cheque book. Ferige usally moves either very early (Nani, Anderson, Smalling, Hernandez) or very late (Berbabtov) in a transfer window so i'm not really expecting anything till August.

6. Thanks to the Liverpool fan this morning who provided one of the worst comments i've ever seen on here, when he signed off with "Death and destruction to Man United" really insensitive, thanks fella.

Loving the new like, unlike tabs.

Robert the Red.(16)(17)

Can 100% confirm that man utd will be making no further sighnings this summer, the club are at breaking point with there debts and Cannot afford either the fees or wages of any top class players, there maybe a few young players sent on loan but other than that there will be no players leaving either, it will be summer 2012 before utd will be able to make any major moves in the transfer Market, all this is well known around the powers that be at mufc I belive most fans realise this aswel

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news utd fans.

So if you can 100% confirm this you must be Utds bank manager or one of the Glazers or work for David Gill.what a crock!

Some Southampton FC gossip

I understand that Benjani will complete a free transfer move by the end of the week, but he will also be shortly followed by the capture of Marvin Elliott from Bristol City. The fee is believed to be around £2.5m.

Antonio of Reading is still debating whether to sign, but also has offers from Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds.

Papa Waigo is not coming back, he has a couple of offers from South American teams and also a second division Italian outfit.

We are also monitoring Steve Howards situation and his potential move to Huddersfield, if that falls through then expect us to jump in and get him.(11)(27)

 

 20 Jul 2010 18:24:29
Manchester United 2010/2011 Transfer news:
Sir Alex Ferguson is to make no new signings this summer. Sir Alex feels he has a good balance of youth and experience in his squad. Unless there is a major injury to an important player there will be no new additions. He is looking to give youngsters like Macheda, Hernandez, Smalling, Cleverly, and the Da silva twins a chance in the first team more regularly. So for all those people saying United will sign Ozil, or Balotelli or Suarez that will definately not happen. The agent of Balotelli has just used United to drive the price of the player up and get a better pay packet from Manchester City. United are not interested in buying Balotelli or Ozil or Fabiano. Sir Alex sees no value in the transfer market and he is right. Balotelli is not worth £35m if Fabregas could potentially leave arsenal for £40m £45m. Balotelli is still very raw like Ronaldo was when he came to United.(25)(23)

 

 20 Jul 2010 18:26:32
Arsenal Transfer News

With Eduardo going out to Shaktar Donesk for a fee in the region of £6m, this will add nicely on top of Wenger already bulging transfer kitty (in arsenal standards) around £37m left (with eduardo money with Kocielny fee deducted). This is looking likely that Arsene with his aray of power in the frech transfer market to lauch a bid for Loic Remy dubbed the next Henry. Arsene has been chasing remy for many a year, may this be the perfect time to make this move?? If he does move for the nice starlet expect a fee in the region of £1012 million, a bid from Liverpool has come in for Remy but is very low and Nice were not interested.

Other moves in the transfer market for Arsenal will be a CB and a GK (a good one). Many names have been thrown around for the CB role but it is looking more and more likely that it will be one of Mexes from Roma, for a fee of around £810. or Per Mertesacker the 6ft5 German giant from Werder Bremen a fee in the region of £1012 mil looks to be on the cards.

The GK situation at Arsenal is nothing but a mess, like the CB position many names have been said, but there are three possible targets. Sebastian Frey, now looking at Second Choice after the signing of Artur Boruc. £35m. Samir Handanovic, the very highly rated Slovenia has had a very good season with Udinese and with them in financial difficulty a bid in the region of £79mil will most likely prise him from the seria A club. Lastly, and probably the least unlikely is Hugo Lloris, again with Arsene's strength in the french market i would not be suprised if a bid were to come in for the young french man in the region of £12 million.

To Sumarise:
Possible INS:
Loic Remy £1011 million
Mexes £810m/Mertesacker £1012m
Frey £35m/Handanovic £710m/Llories c.£12

Signed, Sealed, Delivered:
Chamakh Free
Kocielny £10m

OUTS:
Campbell Released
Silvestre Released
Gallas Released
Senderos £3m
Eduardo £6m(19)(7)

Mate seriously, I used to work as a Rep, If I wanted to get from anywhere West of Birmingham to Liverpool or Manchester I would use the M6, as would anyone with any sense. Aside from the fact that Emirates only fly to Heathrow, Manchester and Birmingham Airports, what do you think they were doing in the Shropshire Area? They decided to land at Heathrow, take in Stone Henge, then across to St. Neots for some wakeboarding, before going through Herefordshire and Staffordshire and then taking in some beach casting in Trearddur Bay, before heading up the M53 to Liverpool? Get real, and before you say how would I know, I live in Cheshire you fool!

Truth is guys J.Cole is a good signing for LFC if he stays fit but i suspect there will be an injury drama before the new season begins..
Dont think 70,000k per week is worth it either
Man U to wait til last minute to see if Ozil will move, nothing before then unless Ninis price drops.
Man U can't afford to start a bidding war for Ozil so expect a last minute rush a.k.a Berbatov deal!

Hi all,

I wrote yesterday about Kenny Daglish being in awe of Arda Turan. Maybe they see him as the ideal no.7 seeing as J.Cole will be wearing 10.
Onto smething new, Loic Remy's agent has said there is a mystery club after him.. Hmmm maybe they are jst trying to speed up the process.. However, unfortunately I have a feeling Arsenal are in there for him now that st Eduardo has gne..
The good thing is Loic Remy has his heart set on Liverpool. Masch. we are still unsure about. let him follow Rafa out the door I say.. Bring back Alonso plz.. Anyway Arda will be soon, aslong as a fee can be agreed. he has told Spurs to Foff, which is good, this year will expose redknapp for what he really is. jst a good motivator. st tactician and Europe requires tactics..
Expect Liverpool to be heavily linked with Milner over the nxt few weeks as apparently he has met with RH and CP.. but to no joy as of yet..(21)(19)

Every celtic fan knows that celtic will not start a season without a number 7 and i am sure that a defensive midfielder in juarez won't get it . so i am sure celtic will have someone lined up for that shirt does anyone have a clue to who it could be ?

I think it might be Bellamy mate i think we have a good chance to get him because he doesn't want to play in the EPL so he would pick Celtic or Cardiff.
So i think he may pick Celtic because we could afford
his wages after McGeady, Samaras and Hinkel leaving and Boruc and McManus already left. And if Bellamy signs he wuld be the number 7.(30)(24)

CHELSEA BREKING NEWS DROGBA !

Chelsea have made it clear to top clubs in Europe that Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba is not for sale.

The double winners were quick to pour cold water on speculation linking Drogba with a move to Manchester City after his agent Thierno Seydi claimed the transfer was a possibility.
"It is all irrelevant, Didier Drogba is not for sale, " said a Chelsea spokesman.

Drogba, who signed with the Blues from Marseille six years ago for £24million, has scored 84 goals since arriving at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Chelsea suffered a preseason injury scare when goalkeeper Petr Cech was forced out of training on Tuesday with a slight calf problem.

Cech underwent scans on the injury on Tuesday afternoon, and the club expect to have the results back on Wednesday.

As we know berbatov couldn't handle the pressure on his own last season so I think Oezil could provide so seriously needed fire power!

Arsenal News

Firstly good luck to Eduardo would of been a great legend if injury hadnt robbed him of confidence.

Loic Remy No chance don't need him and besides Wenger i believe is going more towards british youth talent so expect more in way of CONOR WICKHAM myself.

Defence Mertsacker wouldn't stand chance in Prem league he isn't fast enough or read game well enough to compensate, Mexes is an option however i feel Wenger is definately gonna push on with Jagielka and thast the news i've been getting too.

Goalkeeper like everyone heard the Stekelenburg rumours but i think Wenger is being canny and watching the city situation about Given he chased him past and is right age so not to block the fight between mannone and Scwernzey in 2 years.

One other random rumour i heard was involving Arshavin back to russia in january in exchange for Honda but i think may be wishful thinking but have seen it twice now on euro forums(25)(36)

Birmingham City have made an offer for AZ Alkmaar striker Moussa Dembele.

Manager Alex McLeish has held transfer talks with Birmingham's owner Carson Yeung during City's Far East tour and is planning to make up to four more new signings.

Birmingham City are setting their sights on a move for Juan Roman Riquelme, according to Sky Sports News.

The 32yearold, who has been linked with a move to West Ham United this summer, is out of contract after ending his threeyear stay with Boca Juniors.

A move to West Ham now appears to be out of the question after the club reportedly failed to meet the player's personal terms.(27)(28)

Rafael Benitez is VERY reluctant to get his man mascherano and he definately will.

Apparently, He is happy to see Masch come in for a 15M + Santon swap, as Santon would love to play for Liverpool and he will get more football, infact i can't think of him even missing a single Liverpool game. With the 15M and the other transfer money, Roy is likely to get a replacement for Masch, and that will likely be one of Ever Banega, Sami Khedira or Javi Martinez with the 1st and 3rd being likely to sign for us.

Also, our surprise signing will be Keisuke Honda, who has stated in interviews while at VVVVenlo that he is a Liverpool fan and would really love to sign for them, plus Roy is an admirer of him after his World Cup performances.

Wellington Brito da Silva winger from Litex Lovech
Jefferson da Silva left back from Athletico Azul
Rubenilson dos Santos da Rocha striker from Anderlecht
Rodrigo Antonio defensive midfielder from maritimo
Manteiga midfielder from Feyenord
Jonathas striker from AZ

Wellington Brito da Silva is well known as Tom, he is not a famous player in Brazil, but he has played for Litex since 2006.

Jefferson da Silva Lateral Esquerdo doesn't even play in Brazil's fourth division.

Douglas is a good defender.

Rubenilson dos Santos da Rocha is well known as Kanu, and has played in the second division.

Rodrigo Antonio is a relatively good defensive midfielder.

Manteiga played at Ponte Preta in the first half of this year, but he didn't do anything, known for being uncommitted and lazy!

Jonathas is apparently a good striker, he played three games for Brazil under20 and scored three goals.

United will purchase at least 2 more players should certain plans unfold!
1. if Vidic leaves (up to 25m to R Madrid) then a central def may be purchased. Options are Shawcross, Cahill and Upson).
2. there is a slight chance of Evra being lured away, but SAF is convinced he will stay!
3. the ongoing Hargreaves injury issues may prompt SAF to dip into the Market for a DM. Options are Diarra, Defour and amazingly De Jong from City!
4. A creative attacking midfielder appears to be high on the agenda. Options are Ozil, Ninis, Ireland, Robinho, Sniejder, etc.
5. Up front, SAF appears to be happy with his options, although you can never rule out anything! Berbatov looked good in the first game of the US tour against Celtic which will please Fergie! In Hernandez he has a huge star for the future who will learn a huge amount working alongside Owen as the are similar players! Owen seems to be left out of a lot of people's minds, but don't write him off just yet!

INS Cahill (12m if vidic goes), Defour (14m if Hargo is done), Ozil (whatever it takes)!

Can 100% confirm that man utd will be making no further sighnings this summer, the club are at breaking point with there debts and Cannot afford either the fees or wages of any top class players, there maybe a few young players sent on loan but other than that there will be no players leaving either, it will be summer 2012 before utd will be able to make any major moves in the transfer Market, all this is well known around the powers that be at mufc I belive most fans realise this aswel

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news utd fans.

So if you can 100% confirm this you must be Utds bank manager or one of the Glazers or work for David Gill.what a crock!(21)(17)

Albert Riera is on his way out of Liverpool. Pictures on the club website show J.Cole wearing number 10, a number that Jovanovic occupied until his arrival. Jovanovic now wearing 11 (Riera's number). Expect Torres to follow suit and give this new attacking outlook a go alongside Gerrard. Coming in will be Wayne Bridge.

I spotted this also, but what does this mean for the number 7 shirt? Loic Remy wears 7 at Nice, so perhaps this is already settled? Neatly packaged if you ask me!(21)(21)

Sounds like the bitter blue nose brigade have surfaced again. Perhaps you will recall that 3 weeks ago the Liverpool Echo ran an article categorically stating all the derogatory rumours regarding Stevie G were complete hogwash.

There is no scandal, no sister of Alex and certainly no truth to the ridiculous rumour mongering. You would be really hard pushed to actually pretend to believe NOTW lies.

Maybe I used too many words with a lot of syllables so I'll spell it out simply U R LIAR!! {editor's note – sorry that rumour shouldn't have even gone up as it is completely and utterly false, it was purely a mistake as we were testing out the buttons for voting on the rumours.}(24)(37)

AC Milan have sealed the signing defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Genoa.

The Greek centreback, who played in two of his country's group games at the World Cup, has made over 50 appearances for Genoa since joining in 2008 from AEK Athens.

The 22yearold is reported to have moved for around 5million euros, with a series of Milan players moving the other way.

The Rossoneri have confirmed Gianmarco Zigoni, Nnamdi Oduamadi and Rodney Strasser have gone the other way in a coownership deal as part of the transfer.

Ok folks a major bit of news I have just been told. Liverpool are after two more players and will use the funds from the sale of Masch (gutted) A left back is a priority (not been given any names I am sorry) but the major coup is none other than Carlos Tevez! I nearly fell off my chair but my source is an acadamy player who told me about Cole two weeks ago (I hoped but didn't believe!) I am still sceptical (and v excited!!) but Man City's interest through various agents in a series of centre forwards have given me some hope! Fingers crossed fellow redmen!(15)(55)

The answer to your question is no you cannot afford a player of Carews quality also he is happy at Villa !!

Nottingham Forest:

True Forest till I die fan

Sick of the lack of transfer activity at the city ground and have been on this site along with BBC Sport and Sky Sports Transfer Centre religiously throughout preseason, What I'm more sick of is these bullS stories.. e.g this one today about Jay Simpson..mate hes a striker or winger not a left back for a start!!

These are the proper and only rumours that are sort of 50 /50 really all of them.

Shorey £2M Possibility, sure Villa can go without him but he's holding out for an offer from a prem team then he may sign for Forest otherwise (can see this happening as apart from Fulham there are no other clbs he is currently linked to and has obviously played for us on loan last season to great effect)

Pratley £2.5M £3M Was in papers today that the chairman is quashing any rumours of Pratley going anywhere nor has there been any fresh bid from Forest but if the player wants to go I'm sure he will do..hard to say! (what is for sure is that he has not been appaering at any preseason frielys for the Swans)

Whittingham £2M £2.5M Again a possability but other clubs including some Prem clubs are chasing him Cardiff want to hold on but their transfer embargo and lack of £££'s will no doubt prompt Whittingham to leave, can't be sure it will be Forest though.

Charlie Austin £1M Strongly linked to forest especially for the fact we have a friendly coming up with Swindon but this by no means mean any deal has been srtuck, havent heard anything further on this recently.

Patrick Van Aanholt of Chelsea Not sure of the price but this was an early rumour for another left back earlier on, havent heard any further developments on this for weeks but something tells me if we don't get Shorey we may go for this man (as Julian Bennett our recovered left back that we have sorely missed is apparently to be loaned out according to Bily Whats that all about anyway!!)

Finally Jay Simpson who I repeat is obviously not a left back! Again not sure of any price asked for him be we are after him but along with other teams one of whom is Bour good mates Blackpool!

Editor Please if you have anything to add to this or any further news it would be much apreciated.

this may be what a few of you Reds fans may already know but at least this is real stuffand not just some daft ad talking all sort of rubbish, just wish some of this would devlop further and fast! gosh 2 and a half weeks till start of the season and we hae the smallest squad in the championship I just hope weve got some of these deals sorted behind the scenes and will be unveilling soonEd, please clarify or add to this if you can mate, Cheers!!

Argyle fans if 9 is vacant then Reid must have a proven goalscorer coming soon, you would not hold it open for a novice, or a trialist. Shinji okazaki, kevin phillips, someone is coming for sure.

Or MAYBE just maybe Rory Fallon isn't back off his World Cup hols yet. These numbers have not been offically released, these are the numbers the players are wearing on tour.(14)(33)

Liverpool

Liverpool are looking for a buyer for Kyrgiakos, hoping to get around 23million for him

Riera is now open to a move to Olympiakos, Just trying to agree a fee which will be around 44.5million

Cavalieri will NOT be going back to Brasil, but favours a move to another european team, He doesn't want to go back to Brasil until he's at least 30

Ziegler (Sampdoria) is Roy's top target for the LB position, He (and Others) is after leaving Sampdoria after their manager left for Juventus, and could be signed for between 56 million (covered by Insua's impending sale) with young Robinson being the cover along with Agger

The money from the Yossi and Riera sales will be added to the Dossena/Voronin money from Jan (which is still available) giving around 15milllion to spend, which could be boosted to around the 22million mark depending if they find buyers for Soto an Cavalieri which will be spent (probably not all of it) on a signing, I'm not gonna throw names about but it is thought to be a strike partner for Torres

Scharner is also thought to be close to signing on a free transfer, Mascherano will not be sold, They have had no offer or enquiries for him and want to keep him

Southampton have told Rochdale to name their price for sought after defender Craig Dawson. Despite interest from Middlesbrough, Dawson would move to Saints as he sees their future as a very bright one thanks to the investment from billionaire owner Markus Liebherr. Alan Pardew has said he will match any bid put on the table.

Dale however have told Southampton they will not tell them how much they want so it will be up to Southampton to bid what they think the player is worth.

Boro have already had a £400,000 bid turned down, a bid of over £500,000 should be enough.

It is believed that Alan Pardew sees him as a replacement for veteran defender Radhi Jaidi(23)(19)

Rangers have cut roughly £70,000 a week off their wage bill in preseason. They have a list of targets but trying to leave it as long as possible before making their move for these players. probably saving themselves over £500,000 in wages.
Expect 3 or 4 players to start rolling in round about the end of july.
I also think Walter smith is waiting to see if celtic get knocked out of Europe, which would give Rangers the full amount of participation money the CL offers.
Basicly it looks to me like he wants to see exactly how much he will have to spend before he goes into the market.
A dangerous game to play but Rangers only need 3 or 4 half decent players to retain the league.(43)(31)

Quote: OK, so I misinterpreted what I heard no need to shoot the messenger ! I was told that him and Fowler didn't get on at NQ Fury and this was why Fowler couldn't work with him at Perth. He'd already started court precedings against Fury and the Aussie FA. Oh, and for the record apparently Fowler's wife is homesick just passing on what I've heard fella, obviously you know more about Aussie football than I do !(unquote)

There was a bust up at NQ Fury but Fowler and the Glory have already said that he has no problem with Ferguson. Fowler is suing FFA/ALeague but likely it will be a matter settled out of court (breach of contract I believe). Whilst it was true that his family did not settle well in Townsville, mainly due to a very, very different lifestyle and a smallish expat population, indications are that they are better settled in Perth as the club has been more supportive and there is a big expat population, some of whom know the Fowlers from the UK I believe.

Suffice to say there is no basis in any rumour involving Robbie Fowler returning to the UK until after the end of the coming ALeague season. It is doubtful that he will remain after fulfilling his 12 month contract.(9)(16)

Arsenal news

Heard today that Arsenal are set to offer £10 million for Conner Wickham, and are prepared to allow the young striker to remain at Ipswich on loan for the 2010/2011 season.
Eduardo is set to join Shaktar for £6 million in the coming week, although there was also interest from West Ham.
I have heard no talk of another CB joining Arsenal, so Koscielny may be given the chance to prove himself in the starting XI along with Vermaelen, with Djourou, and the up and coming duo of Nordtveit and Thomas Cruise providing defensive cover.
I don't have any news on the goalkeeping situation, but Wenger has stated that the number 1 jersey is currently up for grabs, and is going to use the preseason to determine which of the four keepers (Almunia, Fabianski, Mannone, and Szczesny) will be the regular keeper throughout the season.

There have been a couple of number changes as well. Robbie Van Persie has swapped to the number 10, following the depature of William Gallas, whilst Carlos Vela has been awarded the number 11, possibly meaning that he will be featuring more this season. These numbers have been confirmed on the official arsenal site, if you check under the First team tab.

Anything to add, Ed?

Liverpool have just had a big delivery of 'V' letters to the Club Shop. Could we be signing 'Van Der Vaart'?

Gervinio (Spelling) Maybe. I can't see us needing VDV now. {editor's note or could it be JoVanoVic??}

No big name players to leave Chelsea this summer. Young players to replace fringe players that leave. 12 signings to come in before transfer deadline closes. No massive spending unless the right player becomes available. The thinking is that the squad is strong enough to retain the title and challenge for the CL, but needs a couple of new faces to keep things fresh.(21)(17)

Mario ballotelli to sign for city at the end of the week for £25m £30m. Ashley young won't be leaving villa as he wil be signing a new contract. For liverpool this is not a rumour but in my opinion I think we should get bridge, turan and remy which would cost around £30m. Especially turan we need players who love the club and will give 100% every game. With mascherano set to leave I don't think think we need a replacement as we have gerrard, lucas, aquilani and shelvey. What you think ed and any real targets for liverpool?

Exclusive Arsenal news

The assistant of the PA of Ivan Gazidis, has just informed me the Mr Gazidis has a meeting with Mr Guerra tommorrow at londons Mayfair Hotel. I didn't know until now that he is the agent of Loic Remy. Makes Perfect senseeduardo has just left for £6.5million and Remy is valued at £10million.Remy will be Eduardos direct replacement plus the incredible pace that he has.

Other players that are being mooted around the club grounds are Stekenlenburg and Mertersecker.Koscienly was a replacement for Silvestre and not Gallas.

Arsenals budget is now £41million£458.5(koscienly)+6.5(dud)=£41million


Remy will cost around the 10/11 million
GK most likely Stekenlenburg £9million
CB 85% Mertersecker £12million

and there is a possiblity of Vertonghen he can play CB and especially DMa perfect cover for song£8million

Liverpool have been in contact with Stuttgart over the transfer of Sami Khedira for a fee in the region of £8.511m with Mascherano going to Inter Milan for a fee in the region of £2732m.

p.s GREAT deal almost as good as selling benayoun for £6m and getting joe cole on a free, talk about losing out unlucky Chelsea(22)(18)

 

 20 Jul 2010 14:08:14
I think Hodgeson has been keeping his powder dry with regard to spending on transfer fees until he finds out whether Torres, Gerrard and Mascherano are staying.

I think Gerrard has given a clear message that he is staying today. I expect Torres to stay also but I'm not sure about Masch.

I think the original estimates of transfer budgets (around £15) were correct. If you add to that the Benayoun and Insua money you have a rough £25M.

Sadly, as Liverpool need English players, who are overpriced, I think this will only stretch to a couple. I would expect two from Bridge, Warnock, Shorey and Knochesky. Maybe even Matt Taylor.

That should account for a good ten to fitteen million quid. The remaining ten to fifteen will go on a striker. Don't be surprised to see a winwin deal negotaiated for Zamora. I think that despite his age he might cost a respectable £10M. Alternatively, I think there is substance to the Remy rumours and maybe even the one about Crouch returning to Anfield. My preference would be for Zamora or Crouch.

If Masch goes I think Liverpool will look to foreign fields for a replacement I just don't think there is anyone English and good enough who we could afford.

 20 Jul 2010 14:00:08
Liverpool are still very much in the hunt for Loic Remy despite his agent Frederic Guerra implying that a mystery 'major Premier League' has been in contact and a meeting will take place on Wednesday. This is absolutely untrue and his agent is simply trying to rapidly engineer a move to Liverpool as Remy has his heart set on a move to Anfield. Liverpool are expected to make a formal inquiry into the amount that West Ham have offered as Nice have already insisted that if Liverpool match their offer and use a different method of payment (structure of installments) then they will do business with Liverpool. Remy's agents comment is to speed up Liverpool to actually bid and get a deal wrapped up by Friday.

Ed is benjani really on trial at nufc ? i mean the fact we distanced ourselves from sol cambell and seem to be more after yohan beneloune suggests that houghton is still targeting player no older than 26 which means a move for benjani would be very unlikely imo. surely if your willing to spend money rather than chase a free suggests this policy is an official club policy. look at th other players ages we have bid for djalo, erding etc.
never heard of him but read somewhere online nufc are after 1860 munich mf stefan aigner, also reckon we will get paddy van aanholt back on loan, hooper from scunny, benaloune and de guzman should he pass the intensive medical hes being put under my mam is a nurse at one of newcastles main hospital and knows a lot of physios there and apparently nufc are using more specialists than normal to see an unknown player and doing extensive tests on his fitness im guessing that is de guzman. {editor's note – from what I have been told, it is about resale value, younger players can be sold later on, older ones can't. But if the player is available for free and is not asking for ridiculous wages and signing on fee, then Hughton is allowed to sign them. Benjani is apparently willing to play for relatively little money and a much smaller signing on fee than most other players. So far he is only being looked at, that is how it has been described to me, I don't know if that means a trial, him training with the team or if Hughton has just put him on a list of possible signings.}(25)(15)

Also Craig Bryson Is close to signing new deal at rugby park .

Eduardo Will Leave Arsenal This Transfer Window according to my new sources in england . any info editor ?

Being In England I have been in contact with other agents and have heard many rumors and important information , this includes Martin Jol Is Wanting to leave ajax but a deal can't be made . Celtic are interested in signing the crystal palace goalkeeper and the young left back of whom i can't recall his name . Liverpool are to sign inter milan youngster davide santon if javier mascherano goes the other way . {editor's note – it is not the same Sissoko mate, different lad altogether, I think the one on trial is a defender.}(13)(45)

Ed, you seem to know a lot
I want to know why..are you a superagent? If not, how come you know so much? Do you work with agents? What at all do you do to get all your information?
And by the way, rumours have been wildly circulating that Sotiris Ninis is almost a done deal for United. Is he? And what have you heard about Berbatov leaving? I most certainly hope he doesn't, because his class and guile is second to none in world football, believe it or not. And please tell me Carrick is not going anywhere.
Have good news for me, Ed, I'm counting on you, you seem to know a lot. {editor's note – I am not an agent no. United were in negotiations with Ninis' club, but things have gone a bit quiet on that front, sometimes that is because they have given up, other times it just means that it is pretty much done and they are just busy sorting out details. I don't think this time it is a done deal though, I think United were a bit put off by the valuation and are having a look at other options. As for Berbatov, I doubt very much he will go this summer, but, the same for Carrick, Fergie is willing to let them go to provide funds or as a makeweight for players he really wants.}(14)(25)

 

 20 Jul 2010 13:32:42
!!^^^Manchester United FC^^^!
United will sign ONE more player this window. Ferguson is looking at Ozil of Werder Bremen and Mario Balotelli of Internazionale Milano.

Ozil will cost around £16.6m/ 20m
Balotelli will cost around £25m/30m

Also being looked at are Sotiris Ninis of Panathanaikos, Should cost £11m.
and Alexis Sanchez of Udinese around the same price.


Danny Welbeck will be loaned to Sunderland, Also leaving on loan will be Mame Biram Diouf."

Sir Alex himself has stated over the weekend that he is NOT in the market for an attacking player, that means EVERY target you have listed is wrong. Welbeck may go on Loan but Diouf will not, he's one of the best forwards at the club! watch him and you'll see why.

I've been told on various occassions throughout the window that United are Planning a £8million Take it or leave it offer to West Ham for Upson as cover and it looks more likely if Vidic Decides to leave, I've also been told by a friend who seems to know what he's talking about when it comes to football transfers that Evra will join Real Madrid for £22 million PROVIDING Sir Alex has found a suitable and affordable replacement.

Just too let everyone know we are not in the market for another Goalkeeper because once Van Der Sar has left Tomasz Kuszczak will become the Number one and Ben Amos and Ziegler will fight it out for 2nd and 3rd choice.

Er Ziegler has signed for another club.
Kuszczak won't be number 1 either..

Also Fergie has said MANY times in the past he isn't looking to sign any more players and then does. You're silly for falling for it..

Ninis
Henrique
Sanchez are all on the radar..(22)(33)

Well whoever wrote this must be on the glue as davide santon is right footed and plays as either a right back or right winger! duno wer abouts u heard that he's a left back.

To this post who ever wrote this you don't know much about this kid cause he is both footed and can play RB or LB and he played his first game ever for inter vs man Utd in Champs league Last 16 playing left back and if i remember Cristiano Ronaldo gave him a praise and said he will be future star.

This mascherano deal is 90% going to happen and he will be heading to Inter for 15m + Davide Santon . Davide Santon knows he will be a Starting XI player at liverpool were as At inter he be warming the bench and stills has Chivu & Zanetti infront of him and would be a wise chose for his future.

Liverpool starting 11 and bench will be like this:

Reina
Johnson Srktel Agger Santon
Aqualini Gerrard Lucas

A few more players will be leaving following Insua and Benni out of the door.

They will be Cavalieri who wants a move back to Brazil. Kyrgiakos, Riera and Ngog will also leave bringing in a total of 1214million rougly.

Mascherano is the high profile player leaving.

This leaves Roy with around 50million to spend altogether. Im not going to give you a list of Ins and Outs as i don't know who the replacements are but i do know that Pranjic is being chased and that you can expect to see 3 signings before Europa league game with atleast one more english name arriving.

"Robbie Fowler is looking for a quick return to England after his new club Perth Glory appointed former North Queensland Fury manager Ian Ferguson as their new coach. Fowler played under Ferguson at NQ Fury and the two do not get on. Fowler is currently suing North Queensland Fury and the Australian Football Federation and has grown disillusioned with life in Australia despite a promising start. He is tipped to seal a oneyear deal at former club Leeds United.

Do some research mate.

Robbie Fowler joined perth Glory AFTER Ian ferguson joined Perth Glory, actually Ferguson was the man behind getting Fowler to Perth.

OK, so I misinterpreted what I heard no need to shoot the messenger ! I was told that him and Fowler didn't get on at NQ Fury and this was why Fowler couldn't work with him at Perth. He'd already started court precedings against Fury and the Aussie FA. Oh, and for the record apparently Fowler's wife is homesick just passing on what I've heard fella, obviously you know more about Aussie football than I do !(18)(17)

Arsene Wenger has also reportedly (according to the press in Holland) been in contact with Ajax over a potential deal for Stekelenburg. A fee in the region of £9m has been touted.

Contrary to earlier reports on this site, Arsenal will not be signing Van Der Weil or Luis Suarez.

With the immenent departure of Eduardo, I expect Aresene Wenger to make one more signing in he attacking role in order to avoid a similar situation to last season where we only had Arshavin to play up front at one point. Rumours are surfacing that this player will be signed to help the 'Home Grown' quaota too. Possible name I have heard coming to the Emirates is Agbonlahor. Wenger said to be keen to inject some pace in the squad (ala Thierry Henry). However a £20m pricetag could prove a stumbling block in any potential deal.

Nevertheless expect Mexes, Stekelenburg plus a.n.other. All will be signed in time for the Emirates Cup in 2 weeks time.'


I HAVE ALSO HEARD THIS ABOUT MEXES. REPORTS FROM INSIDE THE EMIRATES ARE THAT THE PLAYER IS ON HIS WAY TO AUSTRIA TO DISCUSS PERSONAL TERMS AND UNDERGO A MEDICAL. NOT SURE ABOUT AGBONGLAHOR TO BE HONEST. WOULD LOVE TO SEE OZIL WHICH IS LOOKING MORE OF A POSSIBILITY EVERYDAY NOW. GET RID OF VELA AND BRING HIM IN. GOLAKEEPER IS REALLY ANYONES GUESS

Agree with previous poster that Simon Francis of Southend is being courted by both Notts County and Charlton Athletic. Charlton and Bournemouth also want Southend United's young striker Matt Paterson.
Crystal Palace are thought to be interested in Stuart O'Keefe who recently left Southend after submitting his 14 days notice to terminate his contract due to not being paid! Paul Sturrock will offer Louis Soares (ex Aldershot) and Rhys Evans (goalkeeper) pre contract deals. (cannot sign anyone properly until embargo is lifted).

Ed any news on this happening? {editor's note – not on those specific deals but Palace have been making contact with a number of players gauging interest in them playing for the club. There will be a flurry of free signings if they can get the embargo lifted soon.}(17)(15)

Stevie G is staying. That probably means Torres will too. Read the following:

"He's proved his ability over many years in the Premier League, sometimes against us so it will be fantastic to play alongside him in a red shirt for Liverpool.

"I've told him what a great club this is and I'm sure Joe's the sort of exciting talent our fans will love to see."

Commenting for the first time on the media speculation surrounding his own future, Gerrard revealed: "I made it clear that I simply needed to concentrate on the World Cup and then have a decent holiday with my family.

"I wanted the chance to meet Roy Hodgson privately and having done so I'm very impressed with his plans for the future of the team.

"I've only returned to training today at Melwood with some of the other World Cup players, but I can't wait for the new season to start."

@ tinhead 20 Jul 2010 11:07:47 "with joe cole signed is this likely?"


Pranjic can and does play left back a position that Liverpool are sorely lacking in at present. He can also cover leftmid if needs be (technically he is a left mid played out of position by Croatia) which gives him greater flexibility and as such is ideal. I think the interst in him is as an attacking leftback with the ability to overlap with Cole along with the flexibility to cover leftside of mid if needs be. He certainly seems able to do this and dependent on funding and/or willingness of other names being touted for leftback may well end up our only option. I think Liverpool's interest is primarily as Left Back with the ability to cover other areas. He could probably be prised from Munich for as little as £56M.

Eduardo to leave 100% as someone quite rightly posted he isn't at our training camp in Austria.
The money quoted seems tiny with the way the transfer market has changed, a mere £8,000,000 for him. A Big loss of confidence last season but i think a change of team and we'l see him bang in 20 goals at least.
In my heart i'd love to see arsene put whatever we get for him into the purchase of Ozil but knowing wenger, and the fact we have a number of quality attacking options (van persie, chamackh, bendtner, walcott, wilshere. vela, and the almighty fabregas)
i doubt he will.
Onto our problematic GK front, Monsieur Wenger was very clever with his choice of words. "There is no number 1 at Arsenal". This tells me two things, he wants to give Mannone and Szezesny a chance to prove themselves, but also he is in the market for a REAL number 1. My personal choices would be any of the top German keepers, or Handanovic the slovakian. Buffon was quoted saying he thinks handanovic was the best gk in serie A.
Lastly, onto fabregas and il keep it brief..i've never seen such unprofessionalism from a massive club like barca. Arrogant and bullish!

Arsenal News!

Apprentely Arsenal are ready to raid Ajax for £42m trio, on Goal keeper Stekelenberg, right back van der weil and striker suarez.
Now im not sure how true these rumours are but out of them i would like to see the goal keeper come to the emirates after watching him play for holland in the WC final. bloody awesome.
there were rumours about sebastian Frey to arsenal but if that is the case we will have 4 out of 5 french guys in our deffence inc GK. frey clichy sagna and kos. not good for the english fans.

As an english arsenal fan we would like to see more english players in our team and with the positions that need to be filled CB phil jagielka would be a good buy. apparently everton rejected a £14m bid rejected but arsenal are going to up the offer to £16m but may go as high as £18. this was announced on sky sports so im not making this crap up.

So all in all i would like arsenal to sign 2 more player. goalkeeper Stekelenberg and CB Phil Jagielka

Comrades!

I can confirm that Liverpool have been in contact with Bayern Munich asking to be 'kept informed' of the status of Pranjic. ('Kept Informed' is diplomatspeak for "we're pretending to show only casual interest but really we are desperate for him).

Pranjic, 28 and a Croatian international, is a versatile leftback come left sided midfielder, along the style and type of Riise.

He seems to be a pretty solid dependable type of player at 28 won't get any better, but if signed should be good for 34 years until the younger reserves are ready, but is he of a high enough calibre for a refreshed Liverpool? I have my doubts.

Roy Hodgson is resigned to losing Javier Mascherano to Inter, Inter are readying a 30m (£25m) offer whilst Liverpool want at least £30m (35m) with Rene Krhin involved in any deal.
Liverpool have made enquiries about Scott Parker (West Ham), Ever Banega (Valencia), Christian Poulsen (Juventus) and Gareth Barry (Man City) to replace Mascherano.
West Ham wants £15m and for Liverpool not to bid for Loic Remy
Valencia want 12m
Poulsen isn't wanted at Juve and a 6m bid could be successful
Man City would be willing to include Barry in any move for Torres or Gerrard.
The remainder of the money from the Mascherano deal will be used to sign Arda Turan, who Kenny Dalglish is a massive fan of. Expect a 12m offer soon, but a deal closer to 18m to be successful.
Roy Hodgson's next move is to convince Wayne Bridge to leave Man City for Liverpool, with the guarantee of 1st team football. Liverpool are preparing a £5m bid, but Man City are holding out for closer to £10m
Soon to be on their way from Liverpool are Charles Itandje, Albert Riera, Phillip Degen, David N'Gog and Diego Cavalieri bringing in around £10m, which will be used to sign another forward. With Fernando Torres and Milan Jovanovic the only strikers and Dirk Kuyt used on the right, another striker is needed. Marko Pantelic is available on a free after a successful season at Ajax and interested Rafa Benitez before he left. The money would then be used to sign Conor Wickham, who would remain on loan at Ipswich for the season.(36)(38)

Seydi added: "He is 32 and open to everything. At his age, I cannot ignore the financial aspect."

let's see what the Chelsea fans now say about the money, after reading the Cole signing for Liverpool and Chelsea fans saying it's all about the money, maybe this is what Drogba is all about

for me going to man city would b a step down for drogba i personally don't think he will g he loves chelsea. but if he left im sure the chelsea fans would hate himbecause he turn his back on them for the money . does this mean chelsea r looking for maybe aguero ? what do u think ed?

MUFC News!

United will purchase at least 2 more players should certain plans unfold!
1. if Vidic leaves (up to 25m to R Madrid) then a central def may be purchased. Options are Shawcross, Cahill and Upson).
2. there is a slight chance of Evra being lured away, but SAF is convinced he will stay!
3. the ongoing Hargreaves injury issues may prompt SAF to dip into the Market for a DM. Options are Diarra, Defour and amazingly De Jong from City!
4. A creative attacking midfielder appears to be high on the agenda. Options are Ozil, Ninis, Ireland, Robinho, Sniejder, etc.
5. Up front, SAF appears to be happy with his options, although you can never rule out anything! Berbatov looked good in the first game of the US tour against Celtic which will please Fergie! In Hernandez he has a huge star for the future who will learn a huge amount working alongside Owen as the are similar players! Owen seems to be left out of a lot of people's minds, but don't write him off just yet!

INS Cahill (12m if vidic goes), Defour (14m if Hargo is done), Ozil (whatever it takes)!

Hi guys just to say to the people who say villa have rejected rangers offer from harewood.
well if u type into google the words are, "villa reject harewood offered 2 year deal at rangers"
meaning harewood was a reject/unwanted player at aston villa. he has been released.

at the moment harewood looks to be the only inclusion to the gers at the moment although brett hollman looks to be close to maybe, personally i think champions league football will lure harewood infront of any championship and minor premiership compitition. thanks ed u heard anything else i have missed?

Sunderland are readying a bid for O'Hara with the money they recieved when they had to sell Cana as he wanted European football.

Bruce is looking for a striker to but is finding a good deal difficult. SAF only wanted to loan out Welbeck so Bruce has lost interest.

He may try and sign Salvador Cabanas again or if not he might have to settle for a championship striker like Ross McCormack, Shane Long or if hes lucky his brilliant scouting system will find him a gem in South America.

I personally think he should go for Dentinho but the young player might want to hold out for a bigger club, then again he might just be happy to come to England.(24)(26)

MAN UTD will only make 1 more signing this summer and that will be an attacking midfielder, expect it however to be a relative unknown who will be used as squad back up and will pay in the region of 510m for him.

please evryone forget about schjnider or ozil.

we don't need them, we just need a fuller squad to cope with injuries.

if hargreaves comes from injury (fingers crossed) it will be like having a world class signing in itself.

oh and man city will sign messi, ronaldo, ozil, muller, ballotelli, zidane, pele, and and jimmy bullard (the last one only because another club are interested in him).and still be the second best club in manchester.(42)(33)

Joe cole deal to Liverpool was supposedly done a while back like Harry Redknap predicted, the word is that it was not released untill after he finished his holiday simply to stop the media hounding him when he was trying to rest and have a break after a disapointing world cup. In other news Turan looks very likely to join Liverpool the board has proposed to Hodgson the option to buy Turan after Daglish suggested signing him. Hodgson has supposedly been wathing material of the player and will make his decision shortly afte that it wil all depend on negotiations between Galatasaray an Lpool probly (and this is just my prediction) will b bought for around £1112 million? any information on this would be great because this is one rumour i intend to follow whats your thoughts ED?

Robbie Fowler is looking for a quick return to England after his new club Perth Glory appointed former North Queensland Fury manager Ian Ferguson as their new coach. Fowler played under Ferguson at NQ Fury and the two do not get on. Fowler is currently suing North Queensland Fury and the Australian Football Federation and has grown disillusioned with life in Australia despite a promising start. He is tipped to seal a oneyear deal at former club Leeds United.

Do some research mate.

MUFC

SAF will stick true to his word, and unless anyone is sold, United will only sign one player an attacking midfielder, most likely Ninis for £1011million. SAF would prefer a move for Mesut Ozil, but cannot afford to enter a bidding war and £20million would be the highest he would and could go.

IF Vidic is sold, then a new CB will be bought if Rio recovers in time for the new season, a new CB may not be bought until January dependent on how Evans and Smalling fare. If Vidic is sold, it will either be for £25million cash or £14million plus..Lassana Diarra. SAF will keep faith in Berba, therefore Benzema is not wanted at the moment and with Hargreaves and Anderson crocked (plus the possibility of Carrick leaving for around £10million) a CDM will be needed and Diarra fits the bill.

Comrades!

I can confirm that Liverpool have been in contact with Bayern Munich asking to be 'kept informed' of the status of Pranjic. ('Kept Informed' is diplomatspeak for "we're pretending to show only casual interest but really we are desperate for him).

Pranjic, 28 and a Croatian international, is a versatile leftback come left sided midfielder, along the style and type of Riise.

He seems to be a pretty solid dependable type of player at 28 won't get any better, but if signed should be good for 34 years until the younger reserves are ready, but is he of a high enough calibre for a refreshed Liverpool? I have my doubts.

Hearts' Lee Wallace is close to quitting Tynecastle, after receiving interest from Cardiff City.

Although injured, he is set to travel to South Wales for talks at the Championship club as he has been told by Lazslo that he can go if a club meet his valuation and wage demands.

Cardiff seemingly have, and it is hoped that he will sign a 3 year deal and make his debut in the Portsmouth away game.

TommyTuckerSingsForHisSupper@Eggo.


funny that I didn't know a sacked manager still had that kind of power considering Laszlo was sacked 6 months ago also why would Wallace want to make a step back at this stage in his career and join a worse team than Hearts.

In Hearts news Paul Hartley has saw the new strip and took more time to decide after immaediately feeling sick should be signed by Friday hopefully, A 450k bid is still on the table for Craig Bryson although the Killie chairman is still adamant he won't sell to Hearts the deal is not dead though but still a long way off(27)(33)

Hi guy's was wondering about this scotty parker to liverpool rumour, do you think there are any legs in it??, certainly can't see Bodgit, and Scarper letting him go from west ham, when they said every player is available for sale except scott parker!, this together with the fact that liverpool are one of their rivals in the transfer of loic remy, surely, even if bodgit and scarper were resigned to loosing parker (internally that is), surely they would have asked livcerpool to cool their interest in loic to smooth a deal as it were, and ps were have w/ham got all this money from, they bidding on some decently priced players all of a sudden, and if they don't have the money yet(hence the non upfront fee for Remy), then are hammers fans getting concearned at all? always had somewhat of an afinity with w/ham as they are londons workingmens team, simmilar to liverpool in many respects,
on the subject of lb, i keep seeing us mentioned with contrao, havn't benfica stuck a 20m price on his head??, considering his natural position is as a winger, i can't see roy paying 20m for a makeshift leftback, now before the rants start, I KNOW he played there(lb) for portugal in the world cup, but hes not a natural left back.
thoughts welcome, ranters not

Healy will join rangers on a season long loan with the option of buying him next season. I think he has a contract untill 2012 with Sunderland and Walter does not want to pay over a million pounds for a striker who hasn't proven himself at club level.
Marlon Harewood will be a Rangers player by Saturday he will probalbly sign contract on Thursday. The Aussie winger will also be a rangers player by Thursday, as Advocat manager of AZ has a soft spot for rangers and no one else wants him, he is supposedly on 18k a week, rangers will ownly pay 10k. Miller will leave to join Boyd and Thomo at Bourgh for a fee of around 1.5 2 million. Mcgregor will leave later in the transfer window. Gattuso will rejoin rangers, probably next season to help start a new era of rangers with mcoist at the helm.
Celtic are supposedly in talks with David James but Neil Lenon will not page huge wages for a 40 year old who will sit on the bench. Bullard deal dead, he will probably go to Newcastle, Campbel will join Sunderland not Celtic, but i expect bellamy to join on loan and the wages will be paid with the 9 million which celtic will recieve from Villa. They will also sign Westwood as back up to Zaluska.

Ed have u heard any of these which i have heard/read form papers ect.
thanks

Aiden mcgaedy to villa for 9m in next few days, OUTS loovens , caddis , samaras , sheridan . INS ramis , lawrence , stokes , A serbian striker has been looked at who was in the world cup squad though never played , he was in russia but has moved back to serbia aged 25 havent got a name yet will check websites!

Reckon this may be Dragan Mrda, currently with Vojvodina after an unsuccessful spell in Russia with Khimki. Has scored 35 goals in 56 games in last couple of seasons, so may be the goalscorer Celtic are looking for.

"Wesley Sneijder is interested in a move to Old Trafford and has made his feelings very clear United come and get me"

That's funny, because it was only last week that Sneijder told the world that he wouldn't be leaving Inter Milan.

Also, can people now stop creating rumours about Steven Gerrard leaving Liverpool. Do you really think Joe Cole would have signed if this was the case? He is definitely at Anfield next season, and, as a result, so is Torres.

Mascherano will leave, meaning Liverpool need a replacement (Banega, Defour, Parker) and also 2 left backs (Taiwo, Bridge, Konchesky, Figueroa), as well a backup striker (Remy, Geovinho). I have no sources, just common sense, as i'm sure the editor will agree with me!

Hughton been given 10 million by Ashley but is reluctant to spend big money. Already had a bid rejected for Mulumbu last week and has turned attentions to Gylfi Sigurdsson at Reading, £2.7 million. Sol Campbell will sign on £30k per week one year deal, with the option of a coaching role at the end of this, which would suit Sol due to his home in the North East. Gosling to be announced on Friday of this week, also taking close look at Juan Albin, who is available on a free.
Can also confirm Newcastle bid £1.9 million for Gary Hooper over the weekend, but Scthorpe hanging in for £2.5mil. Leeds taking close look at Leon Best. Kadar and Ranger to Norwich on loan.(71)(163)

Ok so I've been away for a while and I now have some more (real) transfer news..

..Riquelme will be moving to the Premier League within the next few weeks, a host of clubs are interested including West Ham, Birmingham and Sunderland.

Loic Remy is close to signing for Liverpool but the Hammers and Arsenal are monitoring the situation. If he does sign for Liverpool I expect him to wear the number 14 shirt.

Hodgson is also interested in Stephen Warnock and Galatasary captian Arda Turan.

Am I the only old firm fan who is getting sick of all the non educated delinquent Celtic & Rangers fans with their childish posts and bigoted digs at each other? Most of them can't even spell & as a Rangers fan I find it embarrassing. Rant over, onto rumours :)

I believe that if Rangers are able to hang onto most of the players we have left we will be in decent shape for next season and a couple of decent acquisitions should mean we will be able to compete with Celtic despite their activity in the transfer market (Ledley & Cha Du Ri will improve Celtic I'm sure, can't see Bellamy happening though)

I believe Rangers will bid for 3 players in Gary Kenneth & David Goodwille of Dundee Utd, around £44.5 mil for the pair may be enough to prise them away and a £1.5 mil bid for James McArthur should see him join his boyhood idols. This can be funded by the sales of Kevin Thompson (£2mil) who has left already and more than likely Alan McGregor who is one of our most sellable (34mil?) & arguably dispensable assets with Neil Alexander able to step in, as well as the small budget that Walter already has to work with. There may also be 1 or 2 loans or Bosmans to cover SB positions or utility players.

If players such as Edu, Fleck, Webster & Naisy step up & make an impact this year as well as the likes of Miller, Whittaker, Bougy & Davis can continue their great form from last season, along with a few new additions to strengthen the squad and possibly a few youth players taking their chance throughout the season, I think Rangers fans have every reason to be optimistic for 3 in a row regardless of who Celtic sign. We are a team with spirit & togetherness & that goes a long way!!

Let the others come after us.We welcome the chase! BlueS2(104)(174)

The rumours coming from the J.Cole camp (well his friends i know anyway!) is that not only was it the 1st team football that swayed him, but also the signings ('supposedly' their words not mine) in the advanced stages that will be joining. Turan (winger)and Taiwo (left back) will go ahead when the Mascherano deal happens (maybe before if they are confident he is off, meaning more than 1 really keen suiter!), AND, if the takeover happens quickly the Show Off signing will be Aguero (Again, 'supposed' to be a fan of the club and (here comes the cliche) it'd be his dream move!), this was said to be unlikely though and probably won't happen until the January window if not Summer) I asked how they would shape up if Joe is starting as promised?(formation wasn't clear but the 1st XI will look like something this providing the targets and deals come and go as planned, and form, gelling, etc) Not a lot will change at the back I guess. Reina, Taiwo, Johnson, Agger, Carragher. But it gets hazy at best here on. Cole, Turan, Lucas, Gerrard, Kuyt (Aguero, at a guess) , Torres. Don't know how the bench would be, but it safe to say Jovanavic (sp. the freebie) will be there. Not sure who is going or who there from the young ones is rated but then it wasn't talked about, don't know if these are the only signings either. (again that would depend on outgoing transfers generating money i suppose.) Anyway thought I'd pass this on, not a liverpool fan myself but appreciate the club, like spurs man u, arsenal, everton, forest, newcastle, villa, leeds, etc.) Might make it interesting at the top of the prem, looking at the teams there and how they are strengthening it could be a proper 7 way race for the 4 Ch League spots!

Reliable source. Liverpool News..

King Kenny has spent sme time in Turkey. Apparently he is of the belief that Arda Turan is the No. 11 so much need.. Riera gettin told to bounce. he is st anyway. Jovanovic will be played as a striker. if not Kuyt will be played as a striker as Turan can play left or right wing. or as a wing forward.. Anyway the only problem at the moment is the fee.. Liverpool are willing to pay up to 15million.. but Galatasaray are looking more in the region of 20mill.. Loic Remy on his way in soon for 11.5mill.. Ngog being shipped out to France. he may be included in the Remy Deal.. Watch and Learn.. Death and Destruction to Man Utd(114)(80)

Hi guy's was wondering about this scotty parker to liverpool rumour, do you think there are any legs in it??, certainly can't see Bodgit, and Scarper letting him go from west ham, when they said every player is available for sale except scott parker!, this together with the fact that liverpool are one of their rivals in the transfer of loic remy, surely, even if bodgit and scarper were resigned to loosing parker (internally that is), surely they would have asked livcerpool to cool their interest in loic to smooth a deal as it were, and ps were have w/ham got all this money from, they bidding on some decently priced players all of a sudden, and if they don't have the money yet(hence the non upfront fee for Remy), then are hammers fans getting concearned at all? always had somewhat of an afinity with w/ham as they are londons workingmens team, simmilar to liverpool in many respects,
on the subject of lb, i keep seeing us mentioned with contrao, havn't benfica stuck a 20m price on his head??, considering his natural position is as a winger, i can't see roy paying 20m for a makeshift leftback, now before the rants start, I KNOW he played there(lb) for portugal in the world cup, but hes not a natural left back.
thoughts welcome, ranters not

You heard it here first actually, regarding cole to liverpool and to be given the no7 shirt, as jovanovic was given 10!

anyway more vibes iv heard;
lfc are trying to tie up a few more deals before the end of the week, so the players can be brought in ready for the start of the europa league, as most of the players who featured at the world cup will not be available. a left back is roys main concern after the departure of aurelio and insua, with bridge or warnock the likeliest replacement after taiwo was told he wasnt going anywhere by his club. not sure of the validity of other names linked to the club, so will expand more when i know for sure. also ryan babbel won't be going anywhere, being lined up for a more central role.(73)(38)

Strong roumers coming out of Italy this afternoon claimed that Manchester City were on the verge of Signing Ballotelli. His agent has since claimed that talks have been put on hold. This is due to a Manchester Utd delegation arriving in Milan in a desperate bid to force through a transfer. Sir Alex Ferguson rates Ballotelli and will try everything in his power to make this transfer happen. If successful expect an announcement early next week. Ballotelli is desperate to move to UTD as he believes he would have more first team opportunities which is understandable with all Citys fire power, however his agent is keen for the city deal to take place as he believes they will (understandably) get a better deal.

I HAVE HEARD FROM A FEW PLACES AND THE EDITOR MAY HAVE HEARD THE RUMOURS TOO? I HAVE HEARD UNITED ARE GOING AFTER CERTAIN CITY TARGETS FOR EXAMPLE BALOTELLI, TRYING TO GET CITY TO RAP UP THE DEALS QUICKLY, THEN WHEN CITY HAVE BOUGHT ENOUGH ATTACKING PLAYERS, UNITED ARE THEN GOING TO GO IN FOR THEIR OWN TARGETS, I HAVE HEARD OZIL, JOVETIC AND HENRIQUE ARE MASSIVE ON UNITED'S WISHLIST! BOTH WOULD COST BETWEEN 1318M ON DEADLINE DAY! NINIS IS THEIR LAST RESORT.

I ALSO HEARD THE BID FOR NINIS WAS REJECTED BUT THE MAIN OBJECTIVE FOR UNITED WAS TO SEE IF CITY WOULD BITE, THEY WANTED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD TRY AND STEAL THE DEAL, THEY NEVER SO UNITED WENT FOR BALOTELLI INSTEAD AND CITY TOOK A BIG BITE!

CITY ALREADY HAVE YAYA, ADEBAYOR, TEVEZ, SILVA AND THEY WANT DZEKO & BALOTELLI, I THINK ONCE THESE PLAYERS ARE BOUGHT UNITED WILL POUNCE FOR THEIR OWN TARGETS. CITY WILL HAVE TROUBLE ATTRACTING PLAYERS LIKE OZIL, JOVETIC AND HENRIQUE WHEN THEY SEE THE PLAYERS THAT ARE ALREADY AT THE CLUB. ITS A GOOD PLAN BUT A RISKY ONE!

ED HAVE YOU HEARD THESE WHISPERS? {editor's note – no I haven't, I doubt it very much as well. I think Fergie genuinely wants Ninis.}(62)(56)

There won't be any 'multi billion' investment though, along the lines of Chelsea or Man City; instead, expect a cash 'injection' of around £1218m.enough to make the club a viable 'player' in 201011.
The big investment will come if and when Leicester gain promotion, at the moment, the intention is to expand the image of the club in Asia. If that proves to be successful, and promotion is achieved, expect the financial committment to be ten fold!(49)(55)

I am a realistic newcastle fans , we do have money to spend £15m i reckon , i personally thinks we should go for the following players.


Already done deals
James Perch £1.5m notts forest good signing
Dan Gosling Free everton good signing

In
Sol campbell free arsenal help youngstars + experience , lives in the area. appoint captain

Micheal Carrick £10m not the best of season but if Man utd are willing to sell i can honest see the lad wanting to play for his home town club , hes has won everything he can with man utd , new challenge hes after now.

Robbie Keane £5.5m Goalscorer and can't get in the tottenham team good deal all round.

Juan Albin Free pacey winger also and play as a forward.

Tulio £500k Good world cup , get him as a squad player

Peter Whittingham £2m Cardiff City Premier league class player i beleive and if a bid if put in a can't see why the lad wouldint come. He wants to prove to people that he is a premier league player as he didint get the chance at Aston Villa. Good on the ball , confident in his ability , whips in a good cross , scores goals , and can take a good free kick.

Geovani Dos Santos £4m Tottenham skillful , and takes plays on , can see him being a fans favourite , also the lad wants to prove himself as he hasint been given a fair chance at spurs.

the only problems i can see is carrick and keanes wages.

Outs

Ryan Taylor £3.5m
Xisco £2m
Shola Ameobi £2.5m
Fabio Zamblera £500k
Leon Best £1m
Nicky Butt Free
Fabrice Pancrate Free


Totals In £23.5m Outs £9.5m
Total of £14m spent

Team
GK Harper, Krul , Forster

WRoutledge.Gutierez, Whittingham, Albin
AMNolan, Vuckic, Dos Santos
DMSmith , Carrick
Playmakers Guthrie, Barton
Versitile Gosling
FW Carroll, Lovenkrands, R.Keane

Plenty youth, experience , pace and flair to keep us up also give good healthy competition and leaves the spirit of last season

Remember injuries and suspension will reduce the squad size so its good to have a big competitive squad

"19 Jul 2010 18:47:31
!!^^^Manchester United FC^^^!
United will sign ONE more player this window. Ferguson is looking at Ozil of Werder Bremen and Mario Balotelli of Internazionale Milano.

Ozil will cost around £16.6m/ 20m
Balotelli will cost around £25m/30m

Also being looked at are Sotiris Ninis of Panathanaikos, Should cost £11m.
and Alexis Sanchez of Udinese around the same price.


Danny Welbeck will be loaned to Sunderland, Also leaving on loan will be Mame Biram Diouf."

Sir Alex himself has stated over the weekend that he is NOT in the market for an attacking player, that means EVERY target you have listed is wrong. Welbeck may go on Loan but Diouf will not, he's one of the best forwards at the club! watch him and you'll see why.

I've been told on various occassions throughout the window that United are Planning a £8million Take it or leave it offer to West Ham for Upson as cover and it looks more likely if Vidic Decides to leave, I've also been told by a friend who seems to know what he's talking about when it comes to football transfers that Evra will join Real Madrid for £22 million PROVIDING Sir Alex has found a suitable and affordable replacement.

Just too let everyone know we are not in the market for another Goalkeeper because once Van Der Sar has left Tomasz Kuszczak will become the Number one and Ben Amos and Ziegler will fight it out for 2nd and 3rd choice.(35)(53)

LIVERPOOL NEWSBAR
I was in the bookies in liverpool earlier today, In 1 of the bookies they have stopped taking bets on Steve Gerrard moving and in Ladbrokes they are giving 7/2 and you have to name the club he is going to.
Surely with joe cole coming into the side today, does this mean the end for capt fantastic.
I have said before the world Cup, that stevie will be going to Real Madrid, is this to be the end of stevie and LFC.

Believe me you have misread this situation. They are taking no more bets because they are certain he will not move and therefore they will not offer any further prices. A bit like Joe Cole a few days ago when it became apparent that he was joining Liverpool All markets closed. In a nutshell, Stevie is going nowhere!(47)(60)

To the guy who said this:

Wtach this space

Jontee



Not gonna happen, he has wages of about £80,000 a week and West Ham fans do NOT want him back. He let us down when we were down to bare striking minimums and left us for City. He has done well there but he is not the type of player to go back to clubs. I expect him to hold out until Cardiff can buy him, or possibly if Tottenham step up peliminary interest.(43)(63)

Don't have any inside info about rangers but To all those out their who keep insisting that wattie has no money to spend and will fill the team with kids. Do you really believe he would have stayed another year if he wasn't going to get an opportunity to significantly strengthen the team. He's in the press today saying he's got a bit to spend and he's looking for at least three players. I for one hope some of the younger players get a chance for me that's the way forward(33)(47)

Speaking to someone who does some scouting for Leicester.
His information, (not sure how accurate this is, but he's nothing to gain by speculating).
Leon Crncic, the Slovenian forward who 'trialled' in the friendlies last week, has impressed DeSousa, and the club are interested in taking him on.
LCFC in negotiation with NFFC regarding the possibility of bringing in one of Forest's players, (either an attack minded M/F or a striker)..possibility of Matt Oakley being offered as 'bait' in an exchange deal.Otherwise Oakley, who upset Foxes fans towards the end of last season, will be allowed to leave.
Steve Howard. Will be allowed to move on. He doesn't fit in with Paolo's plans..PdS would prefer a faster, more mobile striker..Who, will depend on budget!
Nicky Adams impressed PdS when he played at right back last week. Will be given another chance to show he can do a job in this 'new' role.
Search is on for another 'keeper.PdS is OK with Weale but would prefer a 'higher profile' number one!!(19)(57)

Okay, so its been a long time since I posted here, bt with the MUFC squad/staff in the U.S., its really difficult to get the info out. Heres the latest:
1. Ninis SAF has decided to increase the bid to 10.8mil and it will be accepted in all probability. He plans to use the kid in a central position behind the striker/s and from what I've learnt, Ninis can shoot with either foot equally well, so that makes him an even bigger asset.
2. SAF had given up on Ozil bt with the recent happenings, expect a last minute offer for the player.
3. Balotelli is also on the radar. The problem is that SAF is only willing to go upto 28mil. Dunno if that's gonna be enough. Jovetic may be a cheaper alternative n SAF is tracking him too.
4. SAF is lining up an approx 15mil bid for Lahm with the possibility of a cash plus swap deal. Official announcement by next monday.
5. Vidic "may" leave. It all depends on the time and nature of the offer. If SAF signs Balotelli/Jovetic first then the cash plus swap deal (benzema) would be rejected. If the offer is close to 25mil, Vidic will leave for sure.
6. Fans may have to say goodbye to Carrick, Obertan, Berba/Park (only for swap with Ozil/Lahm), Anderson or Brown.
My say:
INS:Ninis, Lahm.
OUTS: Carrick, Obertan, Brown.
Plus expect bigger roles for Pogba, Cleverly, Macheda and Hernandez.
