19 Jul 2011 22:57:51
There will be no such signing of Aguero (im a lfc fan, and i have no hope) Higiuan could play at madrid, and could have champo league most places if he wants to leave, and hazard has had offers from top European clubs, so liverpool may not be on his wishlist.
On a more realsitic note, sturrdige is a possibility, but may want first team football which he may struggle to get at liverpool, but we may be the only team willing/capable of paying the asking price.
LB cissohko was smokescreen for another lb, he was deemed to unreliable by King kenny, everton wouldnt conseider selling baines to lfc, and enrique may come but only at a less than 8 million price. Finally Godin looks likely to be targeted only with aplyer like poulson goiing the other way.

19 Jul 2011 18:43:42
Kenny Daglish is very keen to offload a number of midfielders Jovanovic, Poulsen and El Zhar are definitely on their way while Joe Cole look's like he may be staying as no club have tabled an offer also either Raul Meireles or Alberto Aquilani will be sold for between £9-13m the other will stay and take up the number 4 shirt.Jose Enrique will join the club for around £5m as 3 left backs leave Konchesky-Leicster, Mavinga-Rennes and Insua to Roma the club will need to strengthen.Liverpool do need a new centre half but it is looking unlikely this window and Daglish has confidence Martin Kelly can fill in at centre half for the likes of Carragher, Skrtel and Agger while Krygiakos and Wilson can also provide back up.Daniel Sturridge who is valued upwards of £12m likely even as high as £14 or 15m is Daglish's prime target after Enrique but he has to sell to buy which may mean N'Gog may leave the club for £4 or 5m.Raul Meireles will likely make way to bring in some funds as no clubs are showing interest in Aquilani which I think is a bad move as I see him as a better player than Adam, Henderson, Cole and Aquilani and after a first season settling in to English football I feel he would only get better if he stayed at Anfield.(11)(10)

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will finally seal his move away from Southampton BUT not to move to a top flight side. Reading have made an offer for the youngster and will use the money, if nobody comes in beforehand, when Shane Long moves on. Long will go for around £7 million but they also have £5 million from Matt Mills to spend.

That will never happen and I'm a Reading fan saying this. We don't have any of the Matt Mills money to spend as part of being a well run club means that that £5million will cover our operating losses. And before people jump on it no Reading are not in masses of debts we are probably one of the few clubs who aren't. We're just sensible with our money.(4)(17)

Stockport County rumoured to be looking at George Donnelly, the former County striker has fallen down the pecking order at Fleetwood Town after signing for them, from Plymouth last January. Stockport could follow through with this as their hopes of bringing fans favourite Liam Dickinson back to the club are fading by the day, after he was released just weeks after he signed for Plymouth.


Donnelly would be welcomed back. Dickinson I believe would be more trouble than he's worth. Am hearing that Southend striker Matt Paterson who had a successful loan with County last season could be tempted back to the club.

The Scarf

Believable(16)Unbelievable (2)

this is beyond belief how thick some of you does bates make the most money from leeds? simple, get them into the prem and multiply his 20 million pound investment in the club by at least 10. so your argument is totally wrong, he wants leeds in the prem to make the most money, if he sells leeds when they are in the prem to a big invester a la chelsea we will all be happy anyway (leeds fans), he can only think of doing this at leeds and no where else cos of the massive potential at the world wide fan base, academy and the un tapped further potential at the club.(14)(15)

Before I begin my observation, I must say that I am a fan of Nottingham Forest Football Club and that my company is a service provider to NFFC, LCFC and other clubs.

Observing the Maynard deal, it is quite clear that Bristol City believe he will sign a new deal, as they have probably already received offers far in excess of his true value (£2.5m in my view).

I recall that the last offer made was in the region of £5m. The talk on this website is exceeding £6.5m, which I feel Bristol City will probably accept such a fee. However, I feel they're probably working tirelessly behind the scenes to give Maynard a new contract, because in 10 months time, he's on a free...

I think Leicester City know that they're in a very strong position for promotion this season and, having declared their interest in the player, will make a move for Maynard in January when they could sign him for a lower value (Six months on contract) or May, upon promotion for absolutely nothing, (apart from his wages).

If he truly wanted out of BCFC, he would surely have handed in a transfer request by now or BCFC will have cottoned onto the fact that he would not sign within next 12 months.

I doubt Leicester, despite their apparent moneypit, will spend more than £5m on him, in all circumstances, it's a gamble, one season in the Championship for £5m or know the player wants to leave, sign him in 11 months time for free.

Remember, despite the financial clout of football, it is a business and demands savvy people. LCFC wont pay over the odds, there are others about for less a price. Maynard is average Championship and will never play for a consistant Premier League club. I admit, he's had a good couple of seasons (Despite injuries), but even in the current climate, is not worth a penny over £5m.


I agree he won't sign for us. BUT don't say ridiculous things like never and fact. That's not a fact, its your opinion, unless he says he never will then its not a fact. You bristol city fans seem to think you know your players personally.

Hmm... move to a side widely tipped for automatic promotion or stay at mighty Bristol City who just lost 2-0 to Torquay. It's a tough call alright.

the thing is it is pre-season, where the results dont mean anything for example arsenal drew with degnzou but that dosnt mean arsenal are crap(7)(7)

Leeds dont have to sell as they are one of only 4 teams in the top two leagues to post a operating profit last season. the continuous rumours regarding leeds players is due to the fact that leeds have so many good young players that other teams want / wish they could have them, but they cant unless they cough up top wedge for them. this will be proved over the next few weeks as they will stay at leeds or go for monies over the 5 to 6 million mark.(14)(14)

Finally, and most strangely, a premier league star was seen at the CG on Friday, before McClaren flew to Portugal to see his side lose 2-3 to a Spurs second string. The Star, a current England player, was seen at the ground but the Tattler cannot see a realistic deal being made.(12)(18)

Samuele Dalla Bona will deffo not be employed by Swindon Town FC for the following reasons:

He ultimately failed to secure a contact with West Ham and after another unsuccessful training spell with Fulham, he returned to Napoli.

On August 7, 2009 Iraklis have signed the Italian midfielder on loan from Napoli for a season. However, Dalla Bona failed to adjust in the team, mainly due to lack of fitness and his contract was terminated in December 2009, after making just three appearances (all as a substitute) in competitive matches. On 1 February 2010 he was signed by third division side Verona.[12]

On 31 August 2010, he was loaned to Atalanta.[13] However, Dalla Bona failed again to adjust to the team, and by the end of the season managed just a single appearance (at Coppa Italia).

So he not fit, has an attitude, struggles to fit into most team setups.......and you think Paolo's going to employ him at Swindon....i dont think so some how do you??(2)(3)

I'm not an Everton fan as such as I owe my allegiance to the Seasiders (Blackpool) but as my former boss at work is a mad keen Everton supporter I think i have been indoctrinated as I always seem to look for the Blues results first after the'Pool's. Firstly , thanks very much for letting us have Seamus Coleman on loan the season before last when we got promotion. He gave us 100% effort and put in a significant contribution to us getting promoted and very pleased to see he had a successful season last year with the Blues in the Premiership. Just a couple of queries I'd like to raise about a few other young players on the books at the moment. Gueye --- I noticed he knocked in a couple of goals in the friendly at Bury the other night, is he likely to get a bigger look in in the first team squad? Vellios ---- I've only seen him play for about ten minutes but he somehow gave me the impression that with a bit of decent coaching there is the makings of a pretty reasonable player in there . Am I right? Mustafi and do Silva --- these two players seem to have dropped off my radar. Are they still around and if so are they likely to be anywhere near the first team this year ? I'd be interested to hear anyone's ( sensible) views. ALL THE BEST FOR THE NEW SEASON.(9)(4)

Some absolute rubbish gets posted on here about pottential Saints signings. All Saints fans know that deals are done behind closed doors these days, people claiming to be in the know are anything but. I will be amazed if we were willing to pay 6 mil for Maynard or if he would want to come to us anyway. Do I think we'll win the league? No. But I do think if we can keep Chamberlain and sign a whippet striker then we'll surprise a few people. To all the people bashing my club, I don't think we are a BIG club, but our average home attendance last season was better than 2 premier league clubs and 20 Championship clubs, not bad for a team in the third tier.(12)(7)
