 LCFC RUMOURS

Trevor Sinclair looks set to sign as he was spotted leaving the ground yesterday along with Izale Mcleod who has recently been placed on the transfer list by MK Dons, but the high asking price for a league 2 player may put the foxes off.

Also Arjan De Zeew and Kris Commons will sign after missing out on Jarvis who signed for Wolves. Should all be completed when Martin Allen returns from a short break.

 

 Can some of the Liverpool fans please stop posting their wet dreams and champ manager fantasies on this 'rumours' site. As a Liverpool supporter it is highly embarassing to read such nonsense. Lets get things straight.

1) There is NO press conference at 2pm this afternoon and it would certainly not be to parade Lucas Leiva who plays in Brazil tonight for Gremio against Boca Juniors.

2) Liverpool have not already tied up deals for various players – Rafa and the board have been playing a waiting game, lets not forget the transfer window is not officially open yet and La Liga only finished at the weekend

3) strikers – obviously Rafa will look to bring in a top quality striker but perhaps not 2 or 3 as some people on this site seem to believe (don't forget about Voronin) 2 deals that look the most probable are Darren Bent but the reds are put of by Charltons valuation and Fernando Torres who would cost alot but rumours has it he will force his way out and LFC will look to bring the price down to around £18 million plus player (rumour has it Luis Garcia) – however Rafa does not have an unlimited budget, he will not pay over the odds so expect some delay on these possible transfers – if no deals can be concluded then Rafa will turn to less expensive alternatives – Diego Milito or Diego Forlan.

4) Wingers – Malouda, Mancini, Simao and Silva have all been mentioned and I would expect Rafa to bring in a right and left sided player – rumour has it that Simao is the most sought after and the other may be Mancini in a swap deal that invovles Craig Bellamy going to Roma.

5) other players – Yossi Benayoun has been targeted as a replacement for Garcia who may move on in a swap deal and he also has Premiership experience. Goalkeeper cover for Reina will be brought in and there is also rumour of Rafa wanting to bring in an experienced full back with versatility – Milan's Kaladze has been mentioned.

Sorry but no Henry, Tevez, Eto'o or Pele. lets try to stick to real rumours that have some credible substance rather than stories that are quite simply BS

–Red–I–

 

 Rangers will sign cuellar naismith Beasley McCulloch and miroslav karhan in the next two weeks, players leaving will be svensson and sionko who will most probably be used as extras for signings, sebo will not leave as he is to be given a second chance

 

 Leicester City are set to complete a swoop for Karl Duguid and Jamie Cureton from Colchester.

 

 Im a Newcastle fan who doesn't expect to see Owen with us next year, but why would he go to West Ham? smaller club, much smaller fanbase, and people who waffle on about eggert magnasson. what a joke, mike Ashley is 10 times as Rich as him so dream on. no world class players will be going to upton park. only leaving with Tevez off definitely to either Spain or Italy. wake up and smell the coffee bubble blower.

 

 Rangers will complete the signings of Cuellar (money + novo Swap) , Naismith, Beasley and Smith (GK) within the next two weeks. Webster will be signed on loan for a season until the dispute is sorted.

Sionko, Svensson will be sold if the right offer comes in.

Youngsters (Lennon, Shinnie Robinson etc) will be put out on loan but only until new year because if they impress they will be put in the first team.

The squad will be

GK – McGregor / Smith

RB – Hutton / Lowing

LB – Papic / Murray

CB – Cuellar / Broadfoot / Ugo

CB – Webster / Weir

RM – Naismith / Burke

LM – Beaasley / Adam

CM – Fergsuon / Buffel

CM – Hemdami / Thomson

CF – Boyd / Gow

CF – Darchville / Sebo

Stevie Smith is not mentioned as his injury is more serious than first thought and it will be unlikely that he will play again.

 

 Liverpool and Man United to enquire about yakubu

 

 Billy Sharp is set to sign for Norwich City for £2 mill + deal. He has been brought in to partner Rob Earnshaw not replace him.

Freddie Eastwood will reject a move to Wolves in favour of guarenteed first team football elsewhere. The arrival of Matt Jarvis from Gillingham will see Eastwood turn down the move. He will then have to look at the deal from Norwich but is likely to reject.

 

 My sources in Spain can confirm that Thierry Henry will sign for Barcelona. It is definite. What isn't definite is the fee which is to be agreed and any other player exchanges.

Due to Athletic Madrid's failure to secure a UEFA cup spot for the 7th season in a row then Fernando Torres is awaiting a call from England. My sources say that 25 million Euros (£16 million) and Luis Garcia would give Liverpool the player.

Also, Iker Casillas is learning English. When Capello moved to Madrid and stated that he would give Diego Lpez a good try in goal due to his height then this put Casillas on red alert. If he cannot play for his boyhood team, Real Madrid, then he would prefer to play in England.

 

 I have just come off the phone to my mate who works at the FA, crisis talk are under way due to the arbitration and the verdict that West Ham have been relagated for breaching club rules. This news is going to shock all football fans, especially all those (irons). The crisis talks are set to force some big heads to resign, the earlier indepenant panel which decided a fine was suitable for West Ham has been investigated and they feel that the panel acted inproperly and had too much London bias towards the affair. They suggest that deducting points was not economically viable for the east end of London and have brushed the rule breaking under the carpert. Heavey stuff, I'm an Everton fan too, looks like the jag deal could be hitting the rocks.

 

 Crystal Palace in talks to sign Chelsea starlets jimmy Smith and Scott Sinclair on loan. Palace are closing in on the signing of Jose fonte from Benfica for 250k also close in on Lincoln's jeff Hughes for 500k

 

 Carlos Tevez WILL not BE paraded as a new signing for LFC on the 28th June.

He will be in Venezuela with the Argentina national side for the Copa America which begins on the 2sixth June unfortunately. Better luck next time rumour mongers.

Thierry Henry will be though, details are at the moment being finalized on a £16 million + Scotty Carson deal to give Thierry his wish of playing for LFC. And for the record, Thierry instigated this transfer himself through Jerome Anderson, his agent. Barcelona are interested, but against the wishes of The Arsenal board, Thierry wants to play for the reds. FACT

 

 Again to the guy who said that Henry can't leave Arsenal because he modelled the kit.

Well Ashley Cole modelled the kit last time around and still left us that same summer ;)

 

 Kenny Miller and Jiri Jarsoik will sign for Birmingham City for a combined fee of £4 million

Craig Beattie will sign for WBA for £1 million

Thomas Graveson will go to Everton in a straight swap for James McFadden

Celtic will sign Craig Belamy for 8 million

 

 AFC Rumours– It is being rumoured that if Henry is to move to Barcelona, than Wenger sees Diego Milito as the replacement from Real Zaragoza. Bakari Sagna will be tied up in the next week for around 6 million, Ryan Babel will probably arrive at the same price. Wenger is also believed to hold an interest in a number of midfielders including Veloso and Moutinho from Sporting, Yaya Toure from Monaco, Renato from Flamengo who apparently has a buy–out Clause of around 5 mill, Nasri from Marseille which looks unlikely to happen this summer but will be one for the future, Makoun from Lille, Kahlenberg from Auxerre, and Van der Vaart from Hamburg, upto 2 of these may be signed. However there will be no Torres. It looks as if Rosicky and Flamini will probably move to Atletico Madrid and PSG respectively.

 

 Arda Turan has just signed from galatasary to 'Arse'nal FC.

I do not know the fee, but the mother was parading this fact in a turkish hotel.

Luke told you first.

 

 Liverpool:

I have neen a Liverpool fan all my life and I think a lot of fans will be dissappointed when the transfer deadline comes.

When Manchester United were being taken over bu glazer, they came on here just like we are doing and linking ourselves to every player out there. Henry? what the hell? why would he come?

We will sign:

Lucas

Robinho

Milito

That's it.

 

 Chelsea will only move for Malouda once Wright–Phillips has left for half what we paid for him. Aulas will listen to about £12 million for the French international. I've also heard that Henry is apparently considering moving to Barca, as Wenger has that rubbish "1 year deals for over 30s" rule. Barca look set to test Arsenal with a £15 million bid. Arsenal would use this money most likely to sign starlet Ryan Babel and some more youngsters. Alexandre Pato has impressed the Chelsea scouts a lot so that they are watching him at the Under 20 world cup. Chelseaboy.
