The reason Chelsea will sign Villa in the summer is one reason and one reason only, valencia will get all money owing up front. none of this installments rubbish. hard cash up front clubs neva say no . hence essien swp drogba robben if you want a player you need 2 show the player and club concerned you mean buisness. villa has already stated how powerful Chelsea are and I think youll all agree Villa will be the most sought after player in world football this summer so hold tight Liverpool we will all find out how much money you really have
RAFA 2 BID 4 TREZEGUET AND BOJINOV. HE WANTZ 1 OF THEM 2 PAIR UP WITH DAVID VILLA. In DEFENCE HE WANTZ WOODGATE AND ZEBINA AND MIDFIELD XPECT NANI 2 CUM In WITH MASCHERANO SIGND PERMANENTLY
CUM ON THE REDS
In the summer Newcastle will sign Curtis Davies (£7m), Dean Ashton (£10m), and will probably sign O'shea (loan) .
Some Rangers rumours for you. Expect Scott Brown to join up with his pal Kevin Thomson for around 3. 5mil also from the capital Craig Gordon depending on who else wants him. Lee Mculloch will NOT be coming as Walter does not believe he has the quality fir the long term. Several targets to pair up with Kris Boyd like Scott Sinclair on loan and a surprise 3mil move for Marlon Harewood also Johan Djourou on loan.
NEW MANAGER=slaven bilic
Scott Sinclair[1. 6m]
Curbishley will keep the job at West Ham if they go down. Venables will not be considered as the Chairman thinks he is a man who has 'had his day', Bilic is the choice if Curbishley starts badly next year with the players he's bought.
Firstly to 'GO REDS' and his brilliant piece of writing about LFC and CAPS GUY. You are quite right. the targets aren't changed.
Maybe Xavi Alonso and garcis leaving
personally id really miss Alonso but I would prefer someone who holds the ball a lot better than Garcia so a really good winger to replace him will do me.
so to the targets
Hunterlaar (most likely)
Eto (big maybe)
Van Der Vart.
Juan Roman Riquelme
Florent Sinama Pongolle
Hope we start better next season.
- The Magic Sponge.
EvErToN RuMoUrS: David Nugent will definitely sign for Everton FC in the summer . FACT. He has publically came out and made Everton his desired club as Preston have told him he can leave in the summer. Deal around £4-6m. Fernandes is also likely to sign. Moyes has publically stated his intrest an if he is being loaned out, Benfica would sell for around £6m. Richardson may also be signed for £4m depending if Moyes sells more members of his midfield. Moyes will try to offload :
Beattie (3. 5m- Blackburn, Newcastle, Sheffield Utd, Charlton, Bolton etc.
Mcfadden ( £3m or swap with Miller - Celtic)
Van de Meyde ( £3m- Dutch Team likely Psv)
Carsley ( £2m - Bolton)

Wenger will add to his squad at the end of this season. He will bring in a goalkeeper, a left back and at least one, maybe two wingers. The names are:
GK: Akinfeev or Gordon or Carson
LB: Bale or nobody
Wingers: Frank Ribery and Ryan Babel
There will be no such thing as a first team next season, but a squad of mostly young players - all with experience, great technique and pace. The backbone of the team will be high on experience. AW will mix up his awesome midfield as and when necessary. The young p;ayers at Arsenal will come of age next season when they will seriously compete for the PL, CL etc. a season of unprecedented achievement for Arsenal will follow.
Eboue/ Hoyte Toure/ Djouru Gallas/ Senderos Bale/ Clichy
Gilberto/ Diaby/ Muamba
Ribery/ Hleb/ Walcott Fabregas/ Denilson Babel/ Rosicky
Van Persie/ Baptista/ Bendtner Henry/ Adebayor
Do Chelsea fans not listen 2 statements coming from their own club the massive spending is over. they spent big in the pastbecause they had 2 play catch up, that target has now been achieved, now onto the next stage which is youth. if roman has 2 spend big I think he will but that's an if, 2 stay at the top you have 2 compete with the big hitters, 2 players will be brought in summer Richards Villa but jose will have 2 balance the books though like any good manager has too. but if the rumours in London are right I agree 6 million for nugent is a fantastic gamble by jose whats to lose at those prices. expect London clubs 2 plunder Spurs if cl qualification is not forthcoming.
Liverpool signings in the summer:
Astradevic 3mil (spelling)
Sherman Cardenas Free
I believe that all Liverpool fans would be happy with these signing and they are players that Rafa has been chasing 4 a while now and would be intresting in moving to Anfield. 60 million approx would be the maximum Rafa would spend
I work at St James park and some of mates go to the accademy just wanted to let everyone no what I no and here the squad will not drametically change next season shep is willing to give GR time to work his magic as he told FS when he took the job he wants time not money his main aim is to bring the average age down and add players who increase in value not like Mr souness also he has a lot of faith in t accademy boys who he knows all to well expect a very bright future ahead with GR at the helm these r the men GR wants no promise on getting them all though LB= G BALE, L BAINES
CB= J WOODGATE, C DAVIES
M = N REO-COKI COKI COKI
S= D ASHTON (GR PERSONAL FAV)
Also gooch will be made perm expect no others GRhas seen what happens to top men who bring in top european flops so solely will go for british till his job is cemented also the accademy boys will come through thick and fast watch out for LUA LUA this boy has the lot and is the next GEORDIE WONDER BOY you can quote me on that one XGEORDIE BOYX
Newcastle are set to choose Peter Crouch over Dean Ashton and pay £12 million for the striker to play alongside Obafemi Martins. Michael Owen could stay and play in a 3 striker formation - if he leaves - Ashton could be bought as well.
The defense will be bolstered by the signing of Curtis Davies for £7 million, Wayne Bridge for £4 million and Gareth Bale for £8 million. Expect Roeder to spend big this summer.
- GIVEN -
- BALE - DAVIES - TAYLOR - BRIDGE
- MILNER - PARKER - DUFF
- CROUCH - OWEN - MARTINS
ins:Bettie swap for miller+2mil, tymochuk 1. 5mil, fleacther 2. 5mil and gordon 5mil if boruc goes
outs:nakamura 6mil-aston Villa and boruc 7mil-Arsenal
To the guy who said Paul Scholes will retire at the end of the season. ARE YOU MAD! ok he might not be at nited but he defoz won't retire he will sign a 2 year deal with Oldham and see out his days there like he always promised the Oldham fans he would do thanks CJ
The chances of Rafa signing any departing Barca players would be rather slim as Chelsea and Real would theoretically be in the box seat willing to spend millions on big names.
Eto'o has publicly said he admires Arsenal,
Giovanni dos Santos may come to the reds as the word is he wants to step up to first team football and is not receiving it at Barca though he will cost over 12m pounds plus.
As for Ronaldinho he is going know ere why sell the heart of you team, Like selling Gerrard or Henry just is not going to happen in the near future.
Liverpool will sign Dean ashton, when West Ham go down, big strong striker, to compliment, wait for it Michael owen. Rafa has come round to carra and gerards pleas for a goal predator, and with Martins too similar, Newcastle will offload owen to balance the books
Tottenham are set to sell
Aaron Lennon (£18 million)
Jermain Defoe (£12 million)
Harry Kewell (£5 million)
Darren Bent (£8 million)
Oldham want to sign Luton Town striker Sam Parkin and are prepared to pay up to £200,000 for him.
Steve Sidwell was at Celtic match against AC Milan in the Champions League I see him going into the front door with a hood up and grey scarf covering his face, he came out a car with Peter Lawwell of Celtic and went into the Stadium via the big open gate on the front left of the stadium at around 5. 30pm
Juve signing Garrard for 30mil? Never heard of him before
Anyway, Arsene Wenger will buy a new keeper during the summer. Scott Carson has been our main target but wether Liverpool are willing to sell is another question. Other targets are CSKA keeper Igor Akinfeev, CEltic keeper Arthur Boruc, Argentine keeper Oscar Ustari, Le Mans keeper Yohann Pele and Juve keeper Buffon ( unlikely) . Wigan left back Baines is set to join the club after the Latics are relegated. Baptista move will be permanent.
Adebayor to Juventus this summer, as well as Saviola to Arsenal. Bergkamp to become Wenger's assistant and then Arsenal Manager when Wenger moves up to the board.
Also - Alan Smith and 10 million to West Ham for Tevez, to replace Larsson; and to finish ferguson's rebuilding - DIARRA from Madrid to Man Utd! Deals are all still being worked on, we'll see if Ferguson gets his own way
Lfc signed Mascherano, expect him to play some part in Barca game Rafa loves pulling sneaky moves off in Europe.
Eventually he will be taking Alonso's place for next season as a few Spanish teams after him, mainly Real, and he will go, beacause. . Rafa will also go 100%! This Portugal Fiasco has signaled the begining of the end and start of new era for LFC!
All these not Cetrtain, but 98% likely:
Belamy - Villa
Pennant - Totenham (Maybe Part of Lennon Swap)
Fowler - Retiring
Dudek - Feyenord
Aurelio - Loan
Paletta - Loan
Alonso&Rafa - Real
Garcia - Athletico
Crouch - Newcastle
Reina - Valencia
This paves the way for Fresh faces/ new talent and fresh change for a stale squad.
Team For next year:
Alves Kompany Carragher Riise
Real will confirm capellos resignation on Friday michel will be caretaker coach untill the end of the season
Benitez claimed that he was hotly pursuing Valeri Bojinov, David Trezeguet, Amauri and Vincenzo Iaquinta.
Expect a bid for Bojinov who is only 20 years old and would fit the bill of buying talented youth players.
