Interesting article in the Financial Times a couple of days back, about the Spanish Government imposing heavy taxes on companies that fell into certain categories, and one such category was the Spanish football clubs who could end up having to fork out loads of dosh to help keep other areas of the economy going. It is reckoned the big clubs (barcelona and Real Madrid) could end up having to splash out about £30 - £50 million each, on the basis that they can afford to spend that much on players in these troubled times. Some of the smaller Spanish clubs believe this could see them wiped out of business, and even Barcelona and Real have said they may have to sell off some of their key players to finance the Governments legislation. So if this happens, what chances of Messi returning to Argentina or being snapped up for £100 million by Manchester City. We all know he is happy in Spain, but what if he is forced to move for monetary reasons? Very few clubs could afford him now. Manchester City, Chelsea (possibly), and Reading as well - but unlikely to choose them - who is left who can afford his wages?(7)(13)I saw the article too. Not just football clubs but other well off companies too. Part of Spanish cutting back measures I think. Don't know what effect it is going to have on Spanish football - probably drive them all over here. Surprised the Greeks have not thought of this - mind you, not many well known Greek footballers. Perhaps they should put a tax on Demis Roussos' mouth!Its possible, however the Spanish government always seems to find ways of extending Real Madrid's credit. I am not sure that the German government would be happy at indirectly bailing out Spanish football teams?If he were to leave I'm sure Anzhi or PSG would offer him ridiculous wages, money talks.We would never be able to afford Messi let alone his wages (Reading). Only 3 clubs in the prem that would be able to afford him. Man U, Chelsea and of course Man City. It's an interesting point though and could see a tidal wave of players that play in Spain chasing money over here. I doubt as a club we would get players in just because they will get more money here, they have to want to play for the club.There is a good chance there will be an "levelling out" of talent across leagues in the next couple of years, but more to do with the fact the Spanish government have scrapped the so-called "Beckham tax" whereby footballers paid less income tax than they should.
This (and the tanking of the pound against the Euro) are two of the main reasons for the exodus of talent from England to Spain over the last few years.

When the pound dropped from E1.50 ish to parity, someone like Xabi Alonso's euro bundle went from E150kweek to E100kweek overnight. Add in the 50% tax rate introduced (quite rightly) here and his income basically halved overnight compared to what he could get in Spain.

With Mascherano, Barcelona were able to pay him more than he got at Liverpool with a considerably lower outlay than Liverpool had (what with tax, NI etc.)

sadly Jessie J is bang wrong when she says it's not about the money.Reading fans are just getting better and better!! Reading can afford Messi! Brilliant!Must admit, very weird seeing the state of Spanish football discussed in the Financial Times lolI think what the person said about Reading being able to afford Messi has been misunderstood. They now have a very wealthy chairman and as a debtfree club, Reading are now in the top 10 of the wealthiest clubs, and as such, if they wanted to they probably could afford him, but would not do so as it would upset their wage structure, and Messi would not want to play for them anyway as Reading are too "small" - even though they are one of the few clubs that seems to be moving forwards, and as a Reading supporter this is a really exciting time to be a fan. So what if we re being associated with everyone from League 2 to Messi? We have been a sleeping giant for quite a few years and now that giant is starting to wake up. The motivation of Anton and Brian McDermott and the shrewd business sense of John Madejski, I really believe Europe is a possibility in a few years. We only missed out by one place last time and we are better equipped this time to make an impact.Unfortunately its not a matter of them choosing Reading, we are self-sustainable and the income we bring in is no where near high enough to fathom any signing of that calibre.

TrueLoyalRoyalI dont think I'm misunderstood at all, well maybe in life, but not on this! Readings new owner is nothing more than a playboy who has been given pocket change, albeit an awful lot of pocket change, by his daddy. His net worth is 600m. This puts Reading nowhere near the worlds wealthiest clubs. Sorry but thats a fact. It is also a fact that a an individual with a net worth of 600m is very very very unlikely to spend 100m, or 1/6 of their total wealth, on 1 player. Also, on a side note, why do you insist on writing using subjective terms ie 'they', when its clear that you are a fan? You go on and admit youre a fan of Reading, so using terms like 'they', which attempts to insinuate that you happen to be an impartial spectator that just so happens to recognise that Reading is one of about four clubs in the country with the necessary assets to purchase Messi, just sounds a bit daft.

Is this that MrRfc by any chance??...We used to be self-sustainable. Things have changed now. Get used to it. These guys are ambitious beyond anything we could have hoped for.His dad is apart of the ownership as well and hes worth a few billion. Anton is just the face mateMy only concern is that his wages would be too high and upset the rest of the team. Surely we can find someone else with lower wage expectations?Yes he is. He's the face. Or at least he's the owner of the face that is the face of the owner of Reading FC. If you meant that he's some kind of a front? No, he isnt. His father was put through the FA's 'fit and proper persons' test and rightfully so. If the potential purchaser of a football club has an incredibly wealthy blood relative, it is right that he be 'checked out' too. This doesnt make him the owner. In fact, given that he also met the criteria to pass the test, it makes it clear he isnt the owner. Any person able to pass the test that wanted to buy or invest heavily in a football club would do just that!

Wolves rumoured to have submitted a bid of £3.5million for Vincent Aboubaker it is said solbakken is keen to bring him into the team to inject pace into the team the Cameroonian striker currently at Valenciennes FC is said to be keen on the move to molineax as the future looks bright at the club with him being a young player which can slowly develop into the first team. From a newspaper article(11)(5)Which newspaper?I heard this too hope it's true never seen him play though

Norwich want Yakubu as a replacement for Grant Holt and are also rivalling Aston Villa for Kyle Nughton from Tottenham. Norwich are willing to bid £4.5million for the pacey right back.(9)(33)Naughton will join villa, he likes lambert and will be 1st choice wen huttons goneReplacement? last I checked he still wasn't for sale.We dont want yakubu we can get younger player same moneyNaughton has never said he likes Lambert. nor that he ever wanted to leave Spurs for good. infact it was just when Norwich played arsenal away that he said he wanted to do spurs a favour by beating arsenal.
players usually prefer Norwich as a whole compared to the current manager. the team seems to always gel well together and the crowd is great for them.
but odds are, he will stay with spurs. but as of right now he's not going anywhere due to lack of managers.Last i heard the Yak was off to ChinaWhy do you assume that Tottenham will sell him, and why assume he will join Villa, because he liked lambert , all is not as it seems with Lambert & his coach Culverhouse, looks like Culverhouse is staying with Norwich and there is every chance Naughton will elect to return to Norwich, they can certainly offer him a similar salary package as Villa.
Lambert has not been handed huge amounts of money at Villa, so will have to work carefully with what he has, why do you think Ireland is being encouraged to leave, his wages are too high for current management/owners.Naughton will probably stay at spurs because corluka is likely to be sold to a team in europeYak? not in a million years!
naughton will prob go to villa if he leaves at all, depends on spurs next manager. but i dont think we will spend the kind of money being quoted on one player unless Holt is sold. our failed attempt at christmas around 2/3mill is the end of the matter i suspect.

Daniel Totu King Bisungu to join Notts County from Mansfield Town, Source: His own twitter.(4)(9)

This isn't transfer rumours but it is managerial rumours regarding the Gillingham vacancy.

Former Oldham, Barnsley and Huddersfield Town boss Andy Ritchie will be announced as the new boss on Friday morning(8)(11)Good luck gillingham. absolutely terrible manager.Not really... lee clark got job but stalling to see if he gets birmingham job...Top manager and top bloke, still gutted he got sack at barnsley..very highly thought of at oakwellNo manager announcement near. The chairman said on Radio Kent yesterday he still had candidates to speak toHope so. Brilliant leader!Lost his job for basically telling the truth regarding Barnsleys ambitions and capabilities. Good manager, been out of the job for too longLee clark wouldn't go gillingham, he is a better manager than league 2 levelLee Clark is about a league two level but Gills chairman aint gonna open the cehque book like Deano did for him at Town, so he would prob get them relegated!!
JDA (Terriers Fan - not a lee clark fan)Lee clark rubbish manager failed to get a club out of league 1 even tho he spent millions

Bristol rovers set to sign newport county and former gashed David pipe
He is set to be welcomed by the rovers faithful(5)(20)He has signed a long term contract with Newport you got now chanceHe is not welcomed by the gasheads i know, awful player.Another pipe dream.

 


20 Jun 2012 21:00:28
Izale McLeod to be announced as a Yeovil Town player early next week(14)(31) 


 
Hope soHope so we need a proven goalscorer i thunk hes ready to move up a leagueVery likely mate!He was ment to have signed by last week. someone keeps running the same false story.A player Gary Johnson wanted at Bristol City I believe, and McLeod is likely to be swayed by the manager's persistence... would be a fantastic signing for us...Would be excellent for us!Sounds too far from his home in Milton Keynes so it'll surprise me.Its not exactly unheard of for players to leave their homes to join a new club... this is football... not many players have that bigger attachment to where they live to have to join a club there...Would be a great signing for us a proven goalscorer in the football league and the 2 strikers we have are not proven goalscorers i can see it cooming off as it is realistic and we could probably be able to pay his wages

Saints to announce the signings of Stuart Holden, Rhys Williams and the major coup of Tom Huddlestone in the next 48 hours. This will be followed up in the next few weeks by Jack Butland after England get home.(16)(36)I'm a saints fan and Tom Huddlestone is shieAre u in another world all them players are to good for yaIf I was Jack Butland I would stay at blues and play regular first team football thereButland will be home on MondayRhys Williams has just signed s new deal. If he was going to the prem it would be to a bigger club than southampton.Pretty sure williams is happy at boroHuddlestone is not the major coup thats been talked about, we are not after Holden either and Im not aware of any interest in Williams. However Butland is one of our main targets and will hold further talks soon. Would be a good move for Butland as Davis nearing the end of his career Jack can become Saints No 1. Saints will have at least 2 new signings by the start of July and all the people instantly dismissing their chances are in my opinion being very foolish. You have no idea of the plans and targets Nicola Cortese has for the club and he has the finance to do it too.Is this for real!! You have got no chance of signing Stuart HoldenIs this as well as Shawcross :-)

Southampton fans get funnier every day.Apart from the fact Holden is the league belowSouthampton fans think Huddlestone is shte? Injury problems are the only thing stopping him from being an England regular. As good as Parker in my opinion, and youngerI'm a Sunderland fan but shawcross will go to a top 6 club which Southampton are not but they still alot bigger than stokeThere is not 1 Saints fan who really believes Saints can sign Shawcross, he is good enough for top 6. There was one post on here that mentioned Shawcross and Saints and it was obvious by the way it was written it wasnt from a Saints fan. People on here have to take every post with a pinch of salt as anyone can claim to be a fan of any team and write rubbish.Holden wouldn't leave the small club he's at for saints don't be a silly boyAs the person who posted the original message, I am not a Saints fan but a Man Utd employee. The deals are all but done. I now this because my cousin works at StaplewoodSaints could get these players there not at big clubs and saints is a big step up from where there atDont want reece to go , hes by far the best player in the championship and will become a top player, but money talks and a fee of 8 million would be hard for boro to turn down

Burton Albion to sign Jon Macken, released by W
Walsall - you heard it here, first!

RRM the Saddler(20)(7)

 


20 Jun 2012 20:28:44
only a rumour, BUT, Chris Beardsley is apparently set to sign for Luton if Jon Shaw doesn't accept his contract offer. also, expect major movement in the next week or two for Luton as they look to clear some players that have failed to get them back into the football league.

Spurs closing in on Stephane Sessegnon.(19)(26)How can spurs sign anyone with no manager? what if the new manager doesn't rate sessegnon?Why would sessegnon go to a team with no manager? what if the new manager doesn't rate sessegnon? what a load of rubbish this is, anyway he's on his way to psgI agree with above expect why would he resign for PSG when Pastore will always be above him in pecking order for the roleAm a sunderland fan and dont think he will go to english clubs his famly are home sick so going back to france and sess could get into psg squad anydaySess has already said he is staying and oneil doesnt want to sell. It wud take stupid money to buy him from sunderland.

20 Jun 2012 19:53:53
Gus Poyet will swoop for striker David Connolly after he was released by Southampton (good source)(5)(26)His swooping is more like a crawl-he was released weeks ago!No thanks we have money to buy someone goodWould be a good signing for Brighton if we could get him fit- he is the type of player who might well flourish under Poyet's playing style.What style is that live in hope??Going to palaceAh yes poyet's playing style. Do you mean teaching Brighton how to Dive, feign injury, roll around, card wave, waste time?

 


20 Jun 2012 19:52:54
Pavel Pogrebnyak to Reading is DONE, not sure of it will be announced tonight (20/06) or tomorrow
MrRfc(26)(23)If true, can imagine this will really please the rest of the squad. Russian owner and first major signing-a Russian- who is to be paid considerably more than others in the squad and way above what the wages ceiling was. May have to rename your club, Reading Disunited.This is true. photos leaked of him getting pic taken with his reading shirtRegarding pay im told it is not as significant as stated. he will be paid just above roberts but with considerable bonuses. i have faith in mcdermotts motivational skills to keep the group united
MrRfcWe are a squad and a solid TEAM, not a group of individuals.. a big signing will only be beneficial if he gels with the rest of the teamAlso for those moaning about us paying to much it is important to note it is a free transfer so thats give the club more finance for wages. if he stays for the 4yrs i make it similar to the transfer of jrod to saints
MrRfcNo there havent been leaked pics as our shirt isnt out (facepalm)"Little" Reading are not so little any more. All these people who say we are doomed will be eating their hats next May. Come on URzzzzAlso it's worth pointing out to fans that don't seem to know how the press work with transfers - Everything is talked up in the media and they will look to talk about the biggest price possible to sell more copies. He is no way on 65k a week. Great signing when it goes through however...MrRfc-you really don't have a clue! You talk as if a transfer cost and wages can be added together and this makes it OK, comparing it to Rodriguez.
That is just deluded-Saints were careful to sign Rodriguez maintaining the salary ceiling set by the club so that the rest of the squad (who had got Saints into the Premiership) would observe that treatment was fair and equal.
Reading may be able to pay a higher salary to a player they get on a free, and justify the economics-but it doesn't justify the selective treatment to the rest of the squad, and I believe these issues can become very destructive during an initial season in the Premiership when it will be obvious what salaries some other teams are also paying.
Your new owner may have some money, but if this is symptomatic of his business approach, I think you will see some problems by Christmas.Really? You sign Pogrebnyak and you believe your a big team? If he was that good there would have been other teams in for him, but it was just Fulham and if they really wanted him they would have offered him the wages to sign him. He is a good signing for Reading , but hes not a top player at all in my opinion. I still believe Reading will be battling relegation this season.A class player being paid more than other players...no way ;) anyway he isn't being paid that much more. It's considered to be around 35K which isn't insanely high and not much more than players were earning last time we were in the prem.I sat next to him while he was undergoing his medical yesterday.....Me comparing it to jrod was to those who were saying we were splashing the cash like QPR, and btw im not saying you are as i think jrod was a good signing who will be worth more in the future. i have already said that pog will be on similar wages to roberts and that didnt do any harm. these are the wages we will be paying now and i trust mcdermott in keeping the team together
MrRfcSo you said it will be confirmed today, it hasn't been confirmed , good one

Derby will not sign anyone till players are sold. FACT!(18)(8)if signing them requires a feeWe are not a selling club otherwise Will hughes and mason bennett would have been gone by now.If this is a derby fan stop putting a downer on everything.The owners had the club on secure terms now with 1 of the 5 investers putting in more money into the club source Derby telegraph.Nigel has a transfer budget of 1.5 million before sales.so why would we have to sell before all of the Steve davies situation happened.We were only
selling Miles addison and Lee croft and releasing some youth players.Nigel had already known the 7 players he wanted 4 of them being on Free transfer or a cut price.The only player that will cost more than million will be the Striker that replaces Steve davies with Major interest in either Jamie Murphy or Johnny Russell.

we are expecting if all players are sold to gain fees between 3m-5m.Not all of that will go into the transfer budget as nigel will only look to spend a maxium of 3.2 million with the 1.5 at the start before sales he will only need 1.7 of the sale money the rest will go towards facilties the academy.

Jason Shackell will not be sold I repeat Jason Shackell will not be sold.4 Million asking price.Burnley have lost interest as they put in an Embarassing 1.3 which is only 100k more than we payed for him.

Players in
Michael Jacobs
Daniel Powell
Fegor Ogude
Johnny Russell
Paul Dixon
Krystian Pearce
?

All players Bought will be under 25 and there will be no loans.If Alberto Bueno were to revisit it would be Pernament not loan.

Players out
Steve Davies-1.4 Million
Chris Maguire-675k
James Bailey-800k
Ben davies-200k
Lee croft-Undisclosed to Oldham
Paul Green-Free Transfer to Leeds
4+ Players Released

Above is their asking price with Clubs interested in all and some bids have been made for Maguire and Davies.

Get your Facts right

DCFC
#IN Clough we Trust^The Guy above is correct.As we put in bids for michael jacobs that were rejected and we havent sold anyone yet
so.Get your facts rightHe's correct. We wont sign anyone until players are sold. And i find it quite funny how some guy posted something then posed again to act as another person to back himself up LOLIn all the local media both Clough and Glick have stated we aren't going to buy untill funds are raised by selling players. Your list of players we're interested in and imaginary transfer budgets are pure fiction. The only solid link to a signing is Jacobs and that seems to be held up with a lack of money on our part. This isn't putting a downer on things it is based on statments released by the club. so my facts are right! your just absoloutly deluded!! FACT!Just out of intrest who is this Krystian Pearce fella...all rumours say we are buying him...unless its the same person posting rumours on a daily basis...oh for the days of John Fashunu seen at estate agents in DerbyBut what if our bids for Jacobs had been accepted then.No-one has been sold.
The onlly time your theory works if no clubs comes in for Maguire,davies and bailey then we cant get replacements and keep them.Otherwise than that we need to get a Rw Lw Lb Cm and striker
these are all before anyone leaves thenThere is no proof of this in the local media show me the link?.You act as if we are portsmouth.we will well the playes transfer listed gain between 3-4 million and buy the players in question its simple.
whether we have money before or not the players are already heavily linked with other clubs.Derby are letting the jacobs deal go to tribunal after they were told its 575k not the 900k the chairman was expecting.Paul Dixon will be a free transfer.Krystian pearce is a centre back for Notts County only 22 very quick and big think samba.He is transfer listed at 150k derby are offering 130k plus Connor doyle on loan.Johnny Russell is the only striker target but due to his high profile now.I think we will have theo and callum as our first team strikers and have bennett thomas and richards all swap for cover.The only player that seems out of the norm that we have been linked with is the sone aluko and Fegor ogude.Aluko free transfer and ogude for 450k which apparently is a bargain only expect 5 players in more will only be young free transfers.NO loans or players over 25.

 


20 Jun 2012 19:35:32
yeovil town want york city forward Jason Walker(5)(11)No we don't We want izale McLeodHow about both we need atlest 4 strikers next season having all ready got 2^^ agreed, that would be 4 very good strikers... but we know he wants a target man and dont expect foley to play up front as much as midfield... i say 3 more strikers...

 


20 Jun 2012 19:33:54
Paul Green has joined Leeds, and will officially sign on the 1st of July.

Derby will sign Boltons James Caton on thr 1st of July. Michael Jacobs will also be confirmed as a Derby player on that same day.(3)(13)We are not getting James caton.We looked at him found out he was crap.Hes
a same type of player as Tom Carroll very weak.If you posting this because you think this is true show me the linkFunny, talks to Derby fans regularly on twitter, interacts with then, ive even had a game of fifa with the lad. He's very secretive about who he's joining but trust me its Derby. July 1st.Thats funny he dosent even have twitter.
we are getting Michael Jacobs then either
daniel Powell or Jon taylor.That 2 wingers
and we have Jamie ward and Tyson.who will more than likely be first team.Why in world would we have 5 wingers and caton will definately be 5th choice and if bolton dont want him after loosing alot of players we certianly dont seeing as he isnt quck very weak and average skill.

To the guy above stop bsing if you are telling the truth post a link."Played fifa with the guy".Shows how crap he his that could be true.Doesn't have twitter???

@James_Caton94

He might we rubbish but were signing himProof? Link? Why don't you post a link about Ogude then? Lier

SUB-LoweBennett isn't even that good, League 2 standard at best imo. We still have Steve Elliott who is better in my view so won't be too disappointed if Benno leavesWilliamson has just signed a year extension at Vale, and why would Folly drop from Aberdeen to League2?
Also, we are yet to seal SummerfieldA good team maybe less new players. :-)But SPL aint that great at least he will be playing first team football every week if he was at chelt, if not loan him

Bristol City should announce two signings shortly, keeper Neil Alexander from Rangers (free) and Simon Church from Reading (£650,000). Both deals are close to being finalised.(13)(23)How do you know this?Reading want 2 million + for ChurchFrom a very reliable source, prefer not to mention any names.Church is highly rated by Brian McDermott. No way will he leave for less than 1.5m and with a sizeable sell on fee.Im a reading fan and will snap their hands off if they have offered near 700,000,whoever said we want 2 mill for him is not a reading fan who has seen him playAHAHA!!! Church is the best player, he's better than messi.RICKIE LAMBERT SOUTHAMPTON GOAL MACHINE

Bristol City have attempted to loan former forward Nicky Maynard from West Ham but have been rebuffed by the player.

The Hammers sanctioned the move but Maynard didn't enjoy the final stages of his time at the club and hopes to move to a different Championship club on a season's loan this summer.

Elsewhere and McInnes is struggling to attract his top targets to the club. Many players don't believe the ambition of the club matches their own and, of course, City are openly paying less on wages this summer. Aside from Morris around 4 players have rejected contract offers from the club but McInnes continues to talk to 3 other players.(6)(24)Thats why Paul Dixon Chose Derby.Ask him he moving into Lee crofts old home who going to OldhamYeah where bikey ex burnley defender and thought davidson was signing and black

READING FC UPDATE:

Time to clear a few things up:-

Pavel Pogrebnyak - The Free Agent has been at the Madejski Stadium today (20/06) for a medical and to hopefully wrap up a four year contract worth around 35k a week.

Gyfi Sigurdsson - Reading have had an offer accepted by Hoffenheim and have matched Swansea's terms for the player. He has been given 2 weeks leave to secure a move to England. It appears he has distanced himself from a return to Swansea and is waiting to see if any other offers come his way. It is expected that Brendan Rodgers will attempt to bring him to Liverpool.

Jordan Rhodes (BIG NEWS, JUST HAD IT CONFIRMED) - Reading are in advanced talks with Huddersfield. Fee of around 4.5M plus bonuses, involves Sean Morrison moving the other way.

Carlos Sanchez - A 3 year deal for the Free Agent had been agreed, work permit issues and an approach from Bolton has now complicated the situation. Now looking unlikely.

Adrian Mariappa - In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about this one! Reading had agreed a fee with Watford a while back, they couldn't discuss personal terms until Mariappa's return from International Duty. Another club (rumoured Southampton) then made an official enquiry causing Watford to raise the asking price. Currently talks are back on with Mariappa keen on a move to Reading. Deal may involve Simon Church and/or Joseph Mills moving the other way.

Chris Gunter - Reading made a £2m bid which Nottingham Forest rejected. The club are reluctant to improve the offer so currently it has been left.

Jacob Butterfield - Reading have offered a contract to the free agent. Newcastle and Barnsley also have contract offers pending. Other clubs may also be interested.

Matthew Connolly - Reading agreed a fee of just under 1M with QPR back in May. Talks with the player have not yet taken place. Not much info on this one as to why it's gone quiet and if Reading have now pulled out.

Reading have a number of other players they are looking at and are keeping tabs on Free Agents Nicky Shorey and Hayden Mullins. No discussions taken place, may be backup options if top targets fall through.

Despite interest for Roberts, Church & Mills the only bid for a Reading player so far has come from Sheffield Wednesday. 350k for Michael Antonio. It was rejected, asking price is 700k. Roberts has now agreed a new two year contract, Brynjar Gunnarsson is in discussions over a coaching role.

That's all folks, lots going on, more to come soon...

'THEROYALINSIDER'(14)(41)Can back up most of that, exciting times ahead for the royals. feels weird not being linked to league 2 players doesn't it?. also told Brighton have enquired about Church
MrRfcYay the pog will sign for reading.Rhodes 8m minimum. he is worth 4m but htfc dont need to sell so it would take a stupid offer to sign himRhodes won't go unless we get around 8million and town have already rejected 5million from fulham. You do the mathsSo, basically, you have signed one player on wages which will destabalise the rest of your squad, and your other "targets" are looking to go elsewhere with Reading only considered as a last option. And all this information out of a club that conducts its business behind closed doors. I can see problems ahead!This is a very good post, seems to have a lot of truth in it! Only thing I will say is that I don't think you'd get Sigurdsson, he's almost 90% definite to go to Liverpool, but apart from that, this is a good post!Reading wont get Pogrebnyak of 35k per week. I heard they are offering 65k to beat Fulham who are offering 60k.

A QPR fan so completely unbiased because I have no problems with Reading or Fulham.Reading would never offer 65K. It's 35K which over 4 years works out as 500K less then Southampton paid for Jay Rod and that was just the transfer fee. Think about the wages. This one got out because it's more high profile. We have many targets that you don't know about. We are in talks with another striker and a couple of defenders.Who cares about reading this is a southampton page {Ed025's Note - no its not!!Can see 1/4 of that being succesful thoughWill believe the Rhodes story when it is in black and white on the official Huddersfield town website! Will be sad to see him leave if he does go but he will also be seen as a great player to all town fans! Hopefully he will stay but time will tell! DB!QPR Mk IIGaruentee less than half will happenQPR MK II? Hmm just wondering who we've wasted money on like they did. Mccleary free. Pogrebnyak free....look at all dem monies!!Also in talks with Koren
MrRfcSo Reading are buying a brand new team!Good post...although newcastle have made no contact about butterfield as yet..and he's not a free agent yet eitherRhodes deal involves a decent defender going the other way. Rhodes wont be worth 4 million after his season in the championship though. I hope we don't sign him. If we have Pog, Roberts, Hunt and Le Fondre we should be alrightAll of this is completely true, but thats not to say they will all happen. Sigurdsson will not be coming to Reading as he has his heart set on following Rodgers to Liverpool. Reading will play the waiting game with Forest over Gunter, but will not go higher than 2million. Carlos Sanchez will most likely not happen due to the players attitude when in talks over contract terms. Have not heard anything concrete on the Jordan Rhodes deal, but people need to accept that no one will pay 8million for Rhodes because his age means there will be no massive climb in player ability and considering his only experience is in League 1, anything above 5-6million would be far too risky. Just be realistic guys and girls.

TrueLoyalRoyalAlfie is better than Rhodes, don't need him. If pog signs then that's him, Roberts, Hunt, Alfie, Church, Shepherd (albeit will never play a match) don't really need more strikers, a creative midfielder just behind the front 2 is what reading needMariappa deal was never agreed, just hopeful Reading fans assuming they can get whoever they want.We're not buying anything like a new team, looks to me as though we want more strength in depth through the spine of the squad. We simply need more players for a prem season. And yes, this is a good post.Yes Hudders don't have to sell Rhodes but he's interested in going. They may say 8mill but that doesn't mean that they will accept nothing less. it's sales tactics. Ask for more than you actually want. Also Reading don't have to sell Morrison but Hudders want him which would probably lower the asking price for Rhodes.No buying an old team too with Shorey and the SIg lolRhodes is worth what Huddersfield value him at.. They don't need to sell him & he is happy to stay so it will take a silly bid to get him, e.g, 8mil.. Understand??Rhodes Is worth more and we rejected more in january.The reason Rhodes has an 8m price on his head is because Huddersfield don't want or need to sell him. It is purely to put people off. I agree that he is only proven in League 1, and he needs a season in the championship with Huddersfield. It makes me laugh all these premier fans who say he is not worth the money. If he is not worth the money, why are you all so keen to sign him?
Rob 74Gylfi will prob sign for liverpool or swansea. Reading no chance.Michail Antonio is not worth anywhere near 700k, let alone 350k - 150k is more likely.No chance will a club like reading get any of theseThey won't get any of these for most of them it's a back stepLol if you think Gylfi would choose Swansea over Reading. {Ed029's Note - At the moment it's more likely he will be joining Liverpool.Would we rather have rhodes or morrison.. hmmmmm!Morrison is sick! He clearly Loved playing in blue and white last season, looks like a true Town player would love to c him back, can keep his solid partnership with Peter Clarke!Sigurdsson will go to reading because Liverpool are poor and can't afford him. I'm a Redditch Town supporter so I'm not biased.

Graham Westley is getting ready to raid former club, Stevenage, for centre back pairing Mark Roberts and Jon Ashton and has heavily hinted that Chris Beardsley could soon be a PNE player after stating "He is a player I would love to manage again".

DD.(3)(8)Beardsley, possibly as he is out of contract. Would Preston really stump up what SteVenage want for Roberts and Ashton when they are announcing job cuts.No he is not we dnt need anymore centre halfs its strikers and a right back we need now,Hardly when Ashton and Westley had to be kept apart when he left the way he did, Ashton would never work under Westley again.
Preston wishful thinking againPne won't be signing another right back. they have keane as first coice with bailey wright to be used as backup.Why can't Preston fans realise that if they type PNE, instead of Preston, the thread does not get posted to the Preston rumours site!Stevenage fans should remember everyone is for sale in league 1 such is the plight of EVERY club in the division. Howver despite all the cuts at PNE our owner is a very rich man and if Ridsdale asks him for money he can have it. If we make an agreeable offer for Stevenage players we will sign them. PNE and Sheffield Utd are the richest clubs in league 1. Remember that.

Maynard will get regular matches is
to go on loan to a Championship team.
Source: whispers and reading between
the lines!(3)(16)Wont happen (hope not)After the comments he allegedly made when he left, Maynard would be given short shrift if he returned. Not going to happen. By the way if you read a book, and look between the lines, there's nothing there.

Stoke, Fulham and West Ham are interested
in crystal palaces Wilfied Zaha.(21)(11)I hope they are prepared to pay the asking price 8 million upwards if not forget it. bye byeNo chanceCant see at west ham would a hit at stoke but will probably choose fulhamHe isn't worth 8million. 4 or 5mil probably.Going to norwich for 6m plus chris martinWhy does everyone make up these rumpled abot Zaha he signed a five year contract in December so you will have to pay big and these teams will be put off by the asking priceNorwich boundWhy is it Premier League clubs believe they can just come knocking and players will jump at them. No chance, Zaha has 5 years to run on his contract. Our board has said he's not for say, our manager says the same with Zaha also expressing that he wants to stay.No chance of going to any of those clubs the boy is big time and will eventually play for a big time club not two bob also ransHe's got a big club release clause in his contract ...he's goneWe never put a release clause in his contract, chatting rubbish. We turned down 8 million from Bolton in January, to those of you saying he's not worth it- It's probably because you can't afford it. Just mediocre Premier League clubs trying to pretend they're big.Just take him and go to tribunal, Palace be lucky to get four.Not sure he's good enough to be honest. You can get Jarvis or an experienced Prem winger for that money so why blow it on an unproven Champ player? Oh and Palace fans........plucking ridiculous figures out of the air doesn't make him worth that.He's not out of contract, so you can't just take him - he's not a youth player. you have to agree a fee with the selling club and if Palace rejected 8 million in January they would not Zaha go to Wet Spam for minimal fee. Fat Sam dream on, Zaha wouldn't want to go anyway, he's under 6ft and wouldn't fit in10million will have to be the minimum if anyone wants a chance of getting him! 10mil plus Martin then there may be a deal but I doubt Norwich have the financial capabilities to pay that fee.I love the bitterness when a lower league player is mentioned on this site. Followed by "he would only go top four" and mention of a ludicrous price. Premier League Also Rans? Surely it is better to be at an also ran than at a lame horse who never made the race.Liverpool have been sniffing around Zaha for a while. As a Stoke fan I'm sorry to say that us, Fulham and West Ham will just have to wait in line until Liverpool decide to sign him or not. If any deal is done it will probably be on deadline day.Why would it go to a Tribunal, He is on a 5 year Contract.You can't take him in tribunal! He is over 18 and on a pro deal!Crystal Palace need to sell soon or else they would be back in finacial trouble. Rumours of Bolton bidding 8 million are not true. He has a 6 million release clause in his contract.He may not be worth 8 million but that is what the asking price is"Crystal Palace need to sell soon or else they would be back in finacial trouble. Rumours of Bolton bidding 8 million are not true. He has a 6 million release clause in his contract."

- This made me laugh, to start with, Palace are one of a few clubs in the Championship running at a profit.
- Secondly we turned down 8 million from Bolton in January (Check BBC Sport, Sky Sports, Owen Coyle quotes submitting the bid).
- Next, we've already dismissed West Ham's bid of 6 million, our chairman, quote, said it was "poo".
- Zaha has 5 years to run on his contract, we won't sell him unless a good offer comes in.
- If you claiming Zaha is "not worth" 8 million then how comes there is so much interest in him for a player not worth that money? If your really claiming it, then it's probably because you can't afford him.Palace fans need to get real and realise that zaha will be going that is a fact and from what i have heard its 7 mill plus baldock on loan and sears freeSears the Goal machine?.........Yes he will go but just not this season!Love him to come to stoke but i think if he had the choice hed pick west ham for the more chance to play regurallyZaha's going nowhereAs if anyone is going to pay anywhere near these ludicrous figures that Palace fans are plucking out of the air.

Who,s next for barnsley fc? I kmow i,m stating the obvious but we need strengh at the back and cover for mido if he signs on thursday. My prediction for new season is mid table at worst play offs at best.(8)(15)I'd say avoiding relegation is good for Barnsley TBHThey said that the year we went up to the
prem ?never judge by size last years prem
champs have played in the third tierI'd agree with the first post! avoiding relegation would be a success. Last years champs may have played in the third tier but barnsley have been bottom half for a while so promotion is unrealisitcNeed more than just cover for mido, he is way past his bes, never going to score enough goals to get you in play-offs, Barnsley a team i like but survival should once again be the target (mellis a good signing btw)Signings and well known names do not guarantee survival in the championship, Donny found that out last season, any signings need to be complimented by a good hard working team. Barnsley need a defender or defenders just look at the goals against last season. Anybody any news on any defensive signings?Barnsleys defence only began conceding goals in the second half of last season when they lost the midfielders Vaz Te(to West Ham), Drinkwater(Leicester), Jacob Buttetfield(injury) and Jim o'brien (injury). All these were Barnsley best players and were creating and scoring goals, lost them all and had a dreadful second half to the season and narrowly avoided relegation. With goog improve midfield again Barnsley will be mid table and Hill has strengthened in this area already this summer with Ehutu and Mellis plus Jim O'Brien has signed a new contract.
Just need Buuterfield to reconsider and sign offer which is still open and there will be a good squad at Oakwell

Reports in Italy suggest giants A.C Milan have tabled a bid for Andriy Yarmolenko. However Saints chairman Nicola Cortese is supposedly very keen on the winger and preparing a bid. Sounds like rubbish but it is on twitter to. Me being a Stoke fam hopes it isn't true. He was very capable yesterday for Ukraine!(15)(5)The single most one footed player I have seen play in a professional matchAC Milan or Southampton, tough choiceSaints have better training facilities and are in a better league, choice madeNo you don't.The Milan training facility is the bedrock of all Italian football, No doubt Southampton have produced some of our best players but every single Italian great has at one point been through the doors of the Milanello. We English (I'm half Italian) have this idea that everything we do is superior without even knowing about what else is out there. But training facilities aside, Milan is a far FAR more attractive proposition to any player than the Saints. Not to mention the wages Milan can offer.Milan are in the Champions League, the greatest league in the world."Saints have better training facilities and are in a better league, choice made" Oh dear....Another "Saints fan" saying something stupid and making us look bad...We do have top facilities and we do play in the best league in the world, but its AC Milan for god sake...no no just no. I apologise to everyone reading that, what a stupid statement.

Oxford are interested in signing Leon Knight (29) from Glentoran(11)(5)Could be a good chance of this one, as Leon travels from London to Belfast every week to
play and his fitness levels havnt been great recently. The glens boss has given him an ultimatum to move to Belfast permanently or find a new club. A good source from within the club also told me that Leon and manager Eddie Patterson had to be held apart from attacking each other at end of season.
ravenrudeboyHe would be well suited to Oxford, Wider doesn't insist on players having a massive desire for fitness. It was well known last season that fitness was a big issue there. Compared to many of the teams in their division last year the Oxford players clearly lacked stamina resulting in a massive collapse at the end of the season (3 points from 21). Many Oxford fans worry that the same will happen this coming season.You really don't want him. He may be a talented footballer, but his attitude is the worst I have ever seen in a sportsman, he is a disgrace.

Rumours coming in from Italy are that the Pozzo family have decided not to pursue their interest in Watford FC(18)(15)They have because it is in principleFortunately this is NOT the case!!In what way is this 'fortunate'? The guy could come in and ruin all of our progress.On the other hand - he could come in - pay off the 7.5m owed to the bond holders make bas go way lend us half a dozen premier quality players put some Granada and Udinese kids through Harefield and finance some other purchases - why on earth would we want that?Bassini is messing the Pozzo family around with his demands and that is why they are going to look elsewhereThey have been looking at watford for quite some time now.. they are not about to walk away.They are NOT walking away. Bassini wants to sell and quite possibly is being forced to sell. At the moment either the deal is being finalised, or the Pozzo's are trying to get a good deal.Watch this space!The sale to the Pozzo family will be completed by this weekend. From there on Dyche will remain the manager with Zola as Director of Football.

Expect plenty of rumours though as he naturally wants the best deal he can get from his home town club.He has said he wants first team football, he won't get that in the championship...which is why he's close to signing a two year deal with us (Southend)..Stevenage can go away..stealing our players..first Grant..now Freddy...He will get first team football at Stevenage, a striker is what we need, not sure on Freddy but if he bangs in the goals, I won't moan.First team football!! Don't make me laugh! I would'nt have Eastwood in my pub team. Totally lazy and inept as a finisher. Any club is welcome to him and the lower the better till he finds his level.

likely signings??

Grant Holt Heavily linked and to join
this weekend.
Luc Castagnios possibly, however Liverpool
are also now interested.
WIlfried Zaha apparently no deal on
the cards.
Jonas Olsson not leaving WBA?
Natahniel Clyne another possible as is
Mariappa(17)(16)U also forgot eljero elia from juventus which l think will be a superstar at west ham hammers foreverEljero Elia will not be signing for West Ham.

Brighton have enquired after Reading's Simon Church who may be available for a cut price £500K as Reading expand their squad with big earners ready for their Premier League challenge. They are also challenging Hull for the signature of Emile Heskey but that looks far from likely because of his wage demands(9)(10)Heskey is going to Hull or Leicester, Reading pulled out over a month ago.He is not off to reading but he might not come to hullHeskey will more likely end up at Leicester as they can afford to pay better wages than Hull. Shame really since I have always liked Hull.

TrueLoyalRoyalHeskey will come hull beacuse he has worked with bruce before

Southend are in talks with a goalkeeper, this we know. And after doing some digging I think it might be Phil Smith. He was at Swindon when Paul Sturrock was there, and Sturrock handed him the number 1 jersey and now he's out of contract and they've released him. Another option, albeit much less likely is that it's Scott Bevan, who was at Southampton when Paul Sturrock was there.

I think it's Phil Smith though.(11)(2)Would prefer bevan, but its smithGood shot stopper, needs first team football wasnt getting it at swindon, would not let you downDecent keeper for League Two level. First choice for Swindon when Sturrock was manager in L2 promotion season, so knows what it takes to get out of the basement league.Expect him to cost you at least 3 or 4 goals a season! Very average keeperYour a bit behind on the news that Smith is going to Southend it was on our sote last week. Wake up. Smith will join all the ex Swindon players at Southend including the manager.He will be a very good servant to any club. He will cost you a few goals every season and he will flap at crosses, but he will always give 100% and for league two he is a very good shot stopper. Get him to work on his kicking and you will have a good keeper on your hands. Thanks for everything Phil, wish you all the best for the future.

When they can, Portsmouths first signings will be David Cotterill and Billy Paynter, both on a free(8)(22)Pompey have no money! They won't get Paynter for nothing either.Billy Painter won't be free however nominal the fee might beAt the moment, they're not going to be able to get that calibre of player, they're working for a League 1 sized wage budget (1k p/w for an average player)Cotterill played for Pompey on loan a few years back, personally thought he was pretty poor.When they can, Portsmouth should not still be in existence it's making a mockery of English football, how they keep getting saved at the last moment is a shambles.Come on get a grip! Appy will only be able to sign youngsters and old pro's who are past it! He will not be allowed to sign anyone on more than 1k per week and even that is at a push. Forget all these big names, never going to happen.When they can-these guys will be drawing a pension, so I suspect it will not be that important that Pompey won't pay them!Paynter will be a free... Warnock has already said he's willing to let him walk away...Pompey could feed the beast and get Jon Parkin.

Watford defender Adrian Mariappa is eager to make the move to Reading.The Daily Mail says Mariappa is interested in joining Reading but the takeover at Watford may delay matters.Reading have already had a £2million bid rejected for the 25-year-old defender and may have to go up to £4m now to get their man. My personal opinion is the deal is already done.
"RoyalWorthing1966"(10)(14)Only last week you were winging that it was a done deal and it was Saints fault that there was a bidding war!
Now he can see the sort of money Reading will pay in wages to gain a player you will find it very difficult to reel him in.First fruit of the Watford takeover by Giampaolo Pozzo will take Adrian Mariappa to Italy.

I heard a little rumour Tim Cahill to stoke supposed to be a done deal in july(8)(25)Your hearings gone then mate.Cahill would be an outstanding signing could slot in just behind crouch and hopefully defoe cant see it being true thoughThis was going around last year. Not going to happen this summer. He's nearly past it now anyway, we need somebody different to Cahill. Would loved to have seen Kranjcar but he's gone to Kiev now. IMO Marc Wilson should be moved in the middle with Palacios, get a left back in. I've heard Warnock and Cheick M'bengue from Toulouse are possible targets to fill the left back slot.From what i hear Cahill is considering a move to the middle east.He's old enough for Stoke. won't happen though - attacking and midfielder don't exist together in Tony Pulis' vocabulary.No chance won't go to a little clubStoke were interested in Cahill and a deal was close (despite the childish postings by some above who know nothing )on deadline day before Arsenal came in for Arteta at the 11th hour and they weren't willing to sell both. Have heard of no interest this time around though although Stoke are interested in an Everton midfielder.No doubt Stoke are a smaller club than Everton but in the present climate Everton are a sinking ship financially, the only thing that stops them sinking is the miracles that Moyes pull out of the bag season in season out.And Stoke have cash and Everton don't. Of course Everton are the bigger club and always will be but in the current climate Stoke can go shopping there IF Everton need to wheeler-deal elsewhere

Experianced left-back Paul Konchesky in talks with Huddersfield, dont shoot the messenger, heard from a club source. only in talks at the moment(9)(23)I heard that qpr want him, hope he dont go anywhere he was 1 of our best players last season.I don't think so he's on holiday with his family!!Also based on his Twitter profile he is abroad on holiday, talks unlikelyWhenever we said rhodes is on holiday talks unlikley every one sparked up that HE HAS AN AGENT !!I dont think thats true at the moment grayson isnt saying anything who is has approachedDoesn't he have a mobile phone or an agent. What has being on holiday got to do with anythingNot being funny, but I doubt Hoyle will match the wages he's on here and if Prem clubs are interested - as is rumoured - I doubt that he'll even consider Huddersfield.

To all the reading fans who think that their club has 'beaten' fulham to pogrebnyak's signature, you are wrong, fulham don't think he's at all worth his wage demands.

Fulham will sign Mario Mandzukic of croatia(12)(24)Your defiantly right about the first part. the second bit - fingers crossed.Pogrebnyak has proven he can play by scoring 6 in 8 for Fulham so reading will sign him because fulham offered 20k reading offered 28k. Plus Mandzukic has been heavily linked with Everton Source: BBC SportJealous much?You sound annoyed/bitter! Hey it's not just us, go yell at SkySports who say that we took Progreb from "under Martin Jol's nose" hmm

RNelsThey offered him a contract we offered him a contract. He chose us. Hence Fulhan fans consider yourself beaten.Hes an average player no where near as good as all these reading fans seem to think.i dont quite understand why they seem to think us fulham fans are gutted. yeah he scored a few but against who stoke qpr wigan and wolves hardly great teams. i was more disappointed when we lost johnson to qpr. i think you reading fans may be in for a nasty surprise next season. hes not very good.I don't think 'beaten' is at all the right word. I would agree with 'outbid', but beaten, no. You've 'outbid' us on a distinctly unproven forward who, despite his moments of class, has not shown how that extends to a whole campaign.He scord goals against other premier league teams. That's what you need to do. His record for Zenit is very impressive. Fulham fans are trying to convince themselves he's poor so that it softens the blow of him leaving.He chose reading because we offered him 20k and reading offered 30k. We didn't see him worth the investment.

Mandzukic won't happen, has already been the subject of bids from Juventus and Napoli.To be honest, the pog is a bit over rated, he started like a house on fire, but against any big teams he went missing, and can't hold up the ball, fulham could do betterThere's no jealousy about it, for me personally anyway. He had a superb start but after his 5 goals in 4 games, he began to look average, incapable of holding the ball up and doesn't use his size how he should. I wish him luck, his performance vs Wolves was one of the best I've seen at the Cottage but other than that, he was okay.He isnt that good to be honest, I know he scored some goals last season however I really dont believe he will do it for Reading next season. There is a reason why Fulham only offered him a certain amount of wages.To be fair everyone has a point on this thread but for me he is just someone we know can score goals in the Prem. To get a player that consitently scores over the whole season would be too expensive. Overall i'm over the moon with the signing and will hopefully give us a flying start. Also he will compliment the strikers we already have and he doesn't need to the forward that holds up the ball, we already have Jason Roberts for that.

New Norwich Manager, Chris Hughton is to make a bid for Middlesbroughs Marvin Emnes. He see's Emnes as thge perfect striker to play off one of his other strikers. Its unknown whether Emnes is a replacment for Grant Holt. Even though Middlesbrough Manager, Tony Mowbray, doesnt need to sell his star players, a bid 0f around £6m is probably too good a deal to turn down.

Wigan Manager, Martinez is also believed to be a big fan of Emnes. If Moses is sold to Chelsea, he believes Emnes would easily fill his boots. He is also interested in both Middlesbroughs Nicky Bailey and Scott MacDonald. Depending on the proposed Moses transfer, all three could be joing wigan for a combined fee in the region of £12m.(16)(16)No one is paying 6m for Emnes

......Get Real.Um, what are you on?Tony Mowbray ready to listen to offers for Marvin Emnes, Middlesbrough have ready made replacement in Charlie Wyke.I just wish this rumours was true, but this is defo untrue. If it was (but it aint) Boro would defo sell all 3 for 12 million. We would miss Bailey but the other 2 wouldn't be a lossFfs its wednesday already and we still havent signed ledesma.. been sayed he will sign early this weekI've also heard the rumour about wigan being in for the three of them, but the fee was 9.5m. Emnes 4.5m, Bailey 3.5m and Mcdonald 1.5m. I heard it before it was on here from a very good source who works at Hurworth, Boro's training ground. The fee stated above of 12m was what Boro were askking, but they will only get between 8.5 & 9.5m.Who is emnes.Emnes 6 million ? Hes lazy !!That is why the site is called Rumours and not fact. Just relax and enjoy the show. Pre-season is most entertaining for rumours. Someones best friend knows Ronaldo and his dog is saying Billy Woof is coming out of retirementI remember Billy Woof. He was deadly from one yard out!If we sold all three for 12m, I think I would have a party. Emnes is a half decent striker although he gets pushed off the ball too much. Scott McDonald doesnt know the offside rule and can't score from a long distance and Bailey sometimes struggles to pass the ball to feet but he's probably the best out of the three. Wigan will need some very good coaches to teach Scott the offside rule.In the last two weeks boro have made approaches for:

Paul Anderson - Free Transfer
Emmanuel Ledesma - Free Transfer
Mustapha Carayol - 300,000
George Friend - 450,000
Jacob Butterfield - Free Transfer but decided by tribunal.
Paul Smith - Free Transfer
Francois Zoko - Free Transfer
Tony McMahon - resign on reduced terms

Out
Marvin Emnes 3m offer from Swansea, Stephen dobbie offered as part of any potential deal.
Stephen McManus offer from Bristol cityAgreed. Scott is the ultimate ball watcher. Doubt he could pat his head and rub his belly at the same time.

Joe Skarz of Bury is one of several English lower league stars being lined up for a sensational move to MLS with Real Salt Lakes keen on the much admired and verstalie defender.

The Real management, swelled by a serious amount of sponsorship for the Champions league from TV revenue etc,

Sports capitol Partners have for the last year employed three British Scouts as they look to stregthen their mainly foreign squad with native English speakers.

One such scout, with his company based in the North West, and with Pklaying History at Millwall and Manchester United amongst others, has earmarked five left sided players for evaluation in the upcoming trials to be held at the Rio Tinto stadium.

These trials will include up to 100 other hopefuls.

Real salt Lakes have entered the CONCAF Champions league and need to be ready for quality games before the 31 July match with Costa Rican side Herediano.

MLS continues to look to poach the worlds up and coming stars as "soccer" begins to dominate the youth of the US of A.(4)(11)Said agent must be Tommy Baldwin, can't think of many who played for Man Utd and the mighty 'Wall.More likely Gordon Hill who played for the Lions before moving on to man utd and played for a long time in the States
