Chris Powell looks set to bolster the Charlton Athletic back-line with the signing of Norwegian U21 starlet Vegard Forren. A cultured left footer, Forren has shot to fame this season under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer at Molde FK.

It is believed the centre back, who was closely monitored by Everton back in 2010, would command a fee in the region of £750k.(10)(3)Hes worth at least 4m! hes world class!This would be a great signing if it's true!I'm not saying it will happen but this looks to be the most likely of all the rumours on here."hes world class!" OMG some one does not watch a lot of football!

Charlton are set to beat Ipswich and Watford in the race for Sam Baldock's signature. The Addicks are believed to be willing to part with up to a million pounds (incl. clauses) to strike a deal with the Hammers, whereas Ipswich and Watford were believed to be interested in a season-long lone deal.(6)(23)Thats because west ham are interested in a season long loan deal.Good we need to sell him ang get more money but do a millionThat's correct, Big Sam only wants a loan deal for Baldock, so Ipswich have offered to have him on a season long loan, to get him games, just like we done with Mark Noble, we allowed him games and he aint looked backIts on the bbc webisite if you wanna lookAdrian Marriappa is in Jamaca playing for the National Team so he wont be signing for anyone untill he returns in a couple of weeks so no deals are doneWhat has "Adrian Marriappa" got to do with it?Nothing on the bbc website so you lie!Yes thats is true Baldock will sign for Charlton in the next few days or So cause im one of his mates.

Watford rumours---
Adrain marriappa to leave for around £3.5/4 million. Watford also looking to offload chris iwelumo after a dissapointing season.

In response they are looking to sign either sam baldock or nathan delfonso on loan for the season. Also are hoping to tempt james coppinger from doncaster after there relegation to league 1.(3)(17)Coppinger is on contract with Doncaster until 2014, and Watford are only looking for out of contract players and loans after the signing of James CollinsWe don't even need delfouneso! Buaben, Hogg, McGinn returning, Eustace already compete for centre midfield. ND is not a striker either so I dont see where he would fit it.

 


20 May 2012 23:03:22
Colchester to sign out of contract Blackpool star Lua Lua(4)(19) 


 
He's already gone too a Turkish Club.

 


20 May 2012 23:02:17
Jay Rod from Burnley to saints defo (undisclosed fee) will be revealed this week as now they can sign players as play offs has finished.

Pugh from afc Bournemouth to Burnley replacing Jay rod. Around the 1 mil Mark(23)(18)Nonsense. Rodriguez might go to Saints or he might end up about at any one of about half a dozen other Prem clubs. Nothing is yet decided. Quite happy for people to make their own minds as to who's info is correct and there's quite a simple way to check - if we get to the end of the week and there's been no announcement, this is just another posting from an ill informed, over excited, Southampton fan. Getting a bit bored now.Who is Jay Rod? I know Burnley have a player called Jay Rodriguez. Is he the forward that plays with ChaAusHow will pugh, a winger, replace jay rodriguez, a striker?Haha a million for pugh your having a laugh bournemouth would have to sell him for much less than that try about 300,000 !

 


20 May 2012 22:31:43
Middlesbrough could sign Glenn Loovens depending on wage demands and budget(14)(5)I heard that he was also linked with Sheffield Wednesday.Aye he's in demand, solid defender bound to have a few in for himHeard from a Cardiff City fan (Loovens used to play for them) that he is a solid defender, good in the air and good with the tackles. Never afraid to go in for the challenge; just what we need.

 


20 May 2012 21:50:44
Watford Rumours:


-Watford have asked Aston Villa for a possible loan deal for Nathan Delfouneso. Watford are hoping for a season long loan.


-Watford are hoping to sign young Shrewsbury Town striker James Collins, Watford hope to sign the forward for 450k plus add ons.

-Watford will accept a £4.5million bid from Reading for defender Adrian Mariappa. Mariappa will sign a 4 year contract at Reading.(13)(9) 


 
4.5 millon? having a laugh?2 million max for mariappaWe already rejected around 2.5-3.5 mil in january so fat chance of 2 milI heard 2.2 possibly rising to 4.5, over time it would probably equate to 3.5m in realised revenue for the clubNo squabbling - neither of you know! - it will be more than 2.5 - but it won't be 4.5m eitherMariappa is not 4.5m!2.5-3.5 seems like a big difference...Dont you know the exact amount? Reading wont pay 4.5 mill for anyone before the takeover is completed let alone an unproven prem player.2.5m-3.5m is a big difference..... but transfer fees are usually undisclosed... especially ones that don't even go through.Mariappa is a good player, but £3m-£3.5m is the most Reading would spend on him. If he was worth £4.5m then I couldnt see them playing thatI wish we could of got delfounsoThe transfer will go through for less than 2 million around the 1.75 -1.8 mark. He is a good player and 2 million will represent value for money.Prices are inflated in January anyway. £2m tops, and I'd expect no more than £1.2m up front. Good championship defenders don't go for much, just look at Gorkks, only cost £900kAmes collins £450k ? sorry why ?
hes on a free and will be compensation.
get your facts right!^ They're saying that the compensation is £450k obviously. Though I do think that that sounds steep.

Matt Mills went for £5m and Mariappa is arguably a better player. They overpaid but Mariappa is worth more than £2m and we've rejected higher bids so don't get your hopes up Reading...all that promotion money will loosen your purse. Competition from the likes of Wigan, Southampton and others will drive the price up too.If a confrence striker is 1million then that isnt steep

 


20 May 2012 21:38:02
man United to offer Van Persie £200k per week and Arsenal £27million(24)(62)Nope.Van Persie will become another overpaid City mercenary i.e. bench warmer.Behave.

 


20 May 2012 21:37:46
Ruiri Brennen of dunboyen is on his way to play for acrington stanly only costing 21k(8)(2)

 


20 May 2012 21:33:53
Ricardo Fuller to sign for preston on a ee?(8)(31)Nope.You mean free mate absolutely no chance.He's off to Wigan or VillaFirst have heard re Villa- especially now they have no manager so how do you work that out?

Sunderland have made a passing enquiry as have Blackburn.He needs to be realistic, he wouldnt get played at a prem club, and meets westley description of what he wants - free, tall experienced. used to be a north end man. you never knowAbsolutely dead in the water!Fuller is one of the best players we've had in recent years, but there's no chance of Westley signing him.Agreed to go to Wigan as long as Martinez doesnt leave.

 


20 May 2012 21:30:15
southampton manager was at the play off final yesterday looking at ince and phillips, any deal would probaly see puncheon going in the opposite direction(26)(13)Not a chanceHe was at the final, Ince or Phillips would be ideal signings..Would be a coup if we managed to buy one of them.Could be or he just wanted to watch the match :PSouthampton are already signing 57 new players for next season......just think of a name and some Saints fan will tell you how big a club they are and that the player cant wait to join......just not going to happenSouthampton wil sign 5 or 6 new players before the new season but theres probaly 12 or more players there looking at right now, someones got green eyes there lolAlso many skates come on here pretending 2 b saints fans cos as all true saints fans no NC does his business behind closed doors eg hooiveld and tad lee -no one saw them coming^^ behaveHow could he be at the play off final when he was scouting the talent on display at the CL final. Private jet with the boss maybe...drogba, van buyten and that left back bayern played I heard ;). Real saints fan.Adkins was at the play-off final, im sure ur a real saints fan ;) mayb radio 5 live were talking about a different nigel adkins being at the game lol

 


20 May 2012 21:25:13
fitz hall anthony gardner and zat knight all coming in this summer apparantly warnock wants 4 big center backs and its rumoured he wants them 3 along with jason pearce battling for 2 centre back spots.he sees young lees as a right back and wants him concentrating on that position next season hopefully with joel ward.all coming from a very very reliable source.(12)(11)LOL a "reliable source" also said Leeds have to sell before they buy. Stlll Norwich will soon a come a callingHall likely,Knight perhaps but Gardner, I doubt he will come to Leeds.

 


20 May 2012 20:52:07
Any Burton Albion rumours Ed(1)(7)Ed anything on Burton {Ed001's Note - no mate, sorry.}

 


20 May 2012 21:01:09
Manchester city will make a 25mil bid for arsenal superstar robin van persie but there is also rumoured that Barcelona and real Madrid are interested!(36)(16)Anzi offerd 45 million he can go to them if city or who ever top that then they can have him. if he does not sign for arsenal again.I don't think he would be tempted by a Russian club and city are reporting to give him 300k a week!

 


20 May 2012 20:27:49
Southampton are holding talks with Crystal Palace with the possible sale of Nathaniel Clyne. Southampton will offer £4m, plus Lee Barnard and Danny Butterfield to help the deal go through.(23)(19)Y would they offer that When he a free agent in the summerThey have to offer something because he's under 25They would get him on a free, but I reckon Palace would take the money and players in addition!Could happen, would be very happy to see him in a saints shirt but can see him at a top team.When someone produces a Saints rumour and detail a fee you know it is rubbish. They do not give any indication of what is offered or paid for a player-always an undisclosed fee.They would not offer two players + 3 million for 1 player no matter how good he isI am a saints fan and although he would be a decent signing he is going to a higher club. Manchester United had an offer rejected in January but i can see him going there on a free now.

 


20 May 2012 20:24:49
Hibs are to sign James Berrett as a creative midfielder on a Bosman(6)(4)This boy will do well

 


20 May 2012 20:23:08
peter coates has said stoke have interest in owen and wolves have said that 2omill bid would be accepted for fletcher and jarvis

my source sentinel newspaper (local)(16)(9)Better off sticking with Jarvis & Fletcher , twenty million is a good deal for both players.Owen is too injury prone.Stoke seem to have a pretty big squad so would they have to sell before buying ?20 mil for jarvis and fletcher is not a good deal mayb 10 - 15 mil otherwise id bid for victor moses and jermain defoe

 


20 May 2012 20:19:41
Bates has given Warnock funds for Leeds to sign Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney, Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke, Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all(8)(13)And Ali SloweIs this a northern joke? i havn't got a clue.

 


20 May 2012 20:18:27
The recently released Paul Robinson has agreed to go on trial with MK Dons once they return to pre-season training(7)(19)

 


20 May 2012 20:17:19
Norwich city defender Marc Tienery looks set to leave Norwich next season on loan, most likely back to Colchester as part of a sort of peace offering over previous events. Tienery has failed to impress in the premier league this season for me ~ Frank87NCFC(7)(15)Cant have been that bad played every single game he was availableThe original poster is clearly not a Norwich fan. He was one of our stand out players in the first half of the season, right up until his injury. Will 100% not be leaving.I suspect there have been some issues with this player. He may leave in the summer.Tierney a very good left back one of the best attacking defenders norwich have had for many yearsIf he leaves it will be for non football reasons. Know one coyld fault the way he has played.Ask steve morrison what the problem with him is, i bet he will tell yaI think he has really stepped up for Norwich this season and agree any move will be for non-football reasons. I won't repeat the rumours i have heard as its not in anyones interests for it to come out. I have also heard his injury has been overplayed and it is off pitch reasons which have kept him sidelined.Tierney is off, due to off field issues his injury was nothing
It is due to the whole situation with morrison and tierney holt wants to go he feels club havent backed him in the situation and the same reason.until the last couple matches holt and morrison were never on the pitch togetherIf Tierney is off it is to a prem club not silly little ColchesterYou say 'silly little Colchester' but you do realise Norwichs team is built on Colchester foundations. Norwich all in truth should be ashamed that their success was built on alledged illegal doings. I hope somone like villa come along and poach lambert without your permission and aload of your players, you can then know how 'silly little Colchester' feel

 


20 May 2012 20:17:08
charlton will offer millwall paul hayes
for the swap of danny n'guessan.(7)(5)I'd like to see it happen, but i think Millwall are more sensible then thats.He will be aloud to leave, but im quite certain there will be a fee or a swap and fee with jonnie jacksonJohnnie Jackson? In your dreams.Jackson would be a bad deal he's captain and twice the playerHis a league 2 player he might be good but not championship.Ha jackson will not go millwall? why would he? hes finally in the championship he dont want to go back down next yearPaul Hayes and johnny Jackson for n'guesson.. I'd take that"He will be aloud to leave" oh the intellect of the Millwall supporter.Shame it will never happen then ^^^"he will be aloud to leave" was about N'guessan.

Jackson will be similar to bailey. can be at a higher club""he will be aloud to leave" was about N'guessan." You cant make this stuff up can you, brilliant!For gods sake,it's allowed.Yes I am millwall,we are not all mindless thugs.Why do charlton fans take the moral high ground on intgellect. you employed iain dowie.......... er hello thats not vey smart

 


20 May 2012 20:15:47
Grant Holt's agent has released a message saying they are demanding higher wages or wanting a club who will offer more wages.
But, remember what happened to Rooney? He asked to leave. A few weeks later he signed brand new deal with more wages. Yes, I know there's a big difference between Holt and Rooney, but still.(25)(7)I've not seen any of those Norwich fans who said that Holt loves them and would never leave posting much lately, they're probably all feeling a bit silly now to be honest.There is also a big diffence between Man United & Norwich, Holt may be able to do better than Norwich, Rooney's choices were limitedIs grant holt leavingHe has a lot of front for a 31 year old in his debut season. I think he is looking for a final big pay day as he will be unheard of by next season. Another Emile Heskey/Kevin Phillips, One good season and thinks he is bill big balls.Is the "billy big balls" post from a Norwich fan, getting a little bitter about Holt now are we.The agent's statement did not say that at allThe agents statement on the radio show was that holt wants to stay at norwich and is having meetings with David McNally to iron out the issues which have prompted the transfer request. He may leave, he may not

Burnleys Jay Rodriguez has emerged as a surprise target for Sir Alex ,as he looks to good young English talent and he sees Rodriguez as the modern day Sherringham ,Sir Alex would look at loaning Burnley boss Eddie Howe two of his young reserves who the Clarets boss as already enquired about ,a fee in the region of 7m would secure the deal as boss Howe wants to get his business done early and his targets in place(7)(31)Hes signing for charlton
cafc!Is he hell signing for charlton, get back to your league one where you belong.Hope he doesn't, he would flourish more at a mid-table side where he would get first team action! Going places this lad! {Ed003's Note -I agree}No way would Utd sign him

Southampton are interested in signing
rangers striker Sone Aluko for a fee of
3 million pounds. Even though Aluko has
only been at rangers for 7 months, he
is interested in playing in the premier
league with newly promoted southampton
and is desperate to get away from the
financially stricken club. {Ed007's Note - For the last time, Aluko is out of contract, if he leaves Rangers there will be no fee involved.}(5)(20)The fact he is out of contract may change this a tadGood player and he's youngAluko paid to play for Rangers out of his own pocket last season......desperate to leave...hmmm......he will be rewarded handsome if he stays as Rangers can still re-sign out of contract players who were allready at the club !Rangers have an option for a two year contrct

 


20 May 2012 19:40:51
Following the on-going financial problems at Rangers, i've been told, by my reliable source, that Sone Aluko is set to join Ipswich Town.

Although he recently came out and stated he would like to carry on with Rangers this season, he also knew that it might not well happen, and Ipswich have jumped the queue.

Im told he is set to sign a 2 year deal, with an option 12 month deal on top of that, by wednesday this week. Should be down to complete his medical tomorrow/tuesday.(15)(15)You're 'reLOLiable' source is not very reliable.

He will go to a PL club, not a FLC.Hes going to leeds or brightonYou sure Charlton aint in for him as well, they seem to be after every player going at the moment lol

20 May 2012 18:53:00
BREAKING NEWS

Charlton are going to sign raheem sterling on loan from Liverpool charlton are first choice because of the partnership agreed on loanees from the jonjo shelvey deal(8)(9)There is no such agreement,sterling has been told he is very much part of the 1st team next season,we would not loan him to a newly promoted L1 club to spend fighting to stay in championship all season."newly promoted L1 club to spend fighting to stay in championship all season" No you'll keep ahold of him and fight your way into the top half of the prem.Sterling is not going on loan but is fixing to Chelsea due to his mother wanting to move to londonCharlton are in london!!Dont go sterlingCharlton are in London correct but something tells me Chelsea are a bit more attractive as a move

 


20 May 2012 18:51:58
Sources claim Sanchez, Mariappa, Parr are very close to being a done deal at Reading.

John Guiedtti may join on a season long loan, if a deal for Rhodes cannot be agreed

Mark Davies is set to join after takeover is claimed

Jay Rodriguez rumored if this fails Stephen Dobbie may be signed(12)(21)Most of that is rubbish!- Mariappa is bang on.

-Sachez is 'rumoured' on. Medical apparently this week. (apparently)

- Parr almost joined last summer, but talk of going back in for him is just speculation.

- The rest is nonsense.Rhodes is way out of Readings depth and anyway they wont be able to afford the 15 million pound price tag we want for himI doubt Jonathan Parr would want to join Reading we were all booing at him at the palace game when he got the ball after jason roberts got sent off for elbowing him in the face.To anyone who thinks Rhodes is worth £15million is complete trash. He is only proven at League One level. I'd rather pay £15mil for someone actually proven at Premier League level like Darren Bent. Although I guess huddersfield fans value him at £50million and Torres and £250million.Personally I'd love to see Guiedtti and seeing as though city are just loaning him out and not giving him first chance and lets face it most likely wont get into it could be one to go for :) 20 goals in 23 this year is a great stat!15 million for Rhodes hes good but hes not that good! come on that has to be a joke? 5 mill tops and even then who ever gets him is over paying for a proven LEAGUE 1 player.True I went to that gameWe can't sign parr...everyone at the madejski hates him since he got roberts sent off!15 million price tag? Give me strength. You're totally deluded.Jordan Rhodes for £15m ha. You're having a laugh. He's worth £3m maybe £4m max. Thats saying he is more than twice as good as Gylfi Sigurdsson who banged 8 goals in half a season for SwanseaLOL At the bloke who thinks Rhodes is Better than Gylfi!!£15 million get real.

 


20 May 2012 18:46:48
Watford intrested in Aston Villas Nathan Delfonso(15)(4)Dream on watford fansHe's overated and unproven in the championship, wouldnt be worth the money even if it was trueOn loanIt would be on loan, but he sucks so please notNo thank you.We wont get him villa have no other good strikers

 


20 May 2012 18:43:18
Reading to sign:-

LB-Jonathan Parr (currently negotiating)

CB-Adrian Mariappa (almost done deal)

CM-After Butterfield rejecting 2 year deal, attention switched to Mark Davies of Bolton, but he is also wanted by newcastle, meaning attention may again be switched to Henri Lansbury.

CM-Carlos Sanchez (contract negotiating)

ST-A large chunk of the TSI budget is believed to be spend on a big out ant out goalscorer with Jordan Rhodes/ Steven Fletcher the main two targets, with Yakubu also rumoured.

ST-Michael Owen was to be expected considered by McDermott but the transfer is highly unlikely. Stephen Dobbie on the other hand looks set to join and is currently negotiating a deal with swans allowing him to leave(13)(15)Believe it when I see it!No transfer for Owen - he's a free agent
Rhodes is about your level - NOT Fletcher - he's off to one of the top six clubsSince when has Rhodes been a big out and out goal scorer?

Certainly a very different sort of [player to the other two strikers you mention.Your not getting jonny parr!Butterfield has not rejected any offers yet
as no offers have been put to him or his agentNo way are Palace selling Parr. He's resting after playing 70 games last season and says he loves being at Palace

Northampton winger Michael Jacobs is Graham Westley's top target this summer and the only player that Preston will sign whom requires a transfer fee which is beleved to be in the region of 400k.(0)(15)We dont have £400 never mind £400,000.....already said players will be bosmans (i.e. Their own clubs dont want them) or loans.....so any fee and Ridsdale cant pay it.It's from a reliable source mate, just watch this space..To be honest i am a Preston fan and we do have a lucrative budget to spend on new players as the chairman backs westley but i wish Phil brown was given funds to spend on players alsoYou're a melon, he wouldn't go to a bottom end league 1 club with that person in charge! He is getting offers from decent championship clubs, your 'reliable' source is utter tripe

 


20 May 2012 18:11:36
Modric to real Madrid as tottenham didn't get champions league. 25m(21)(5)Tottenham rejected a 40mil bid from Chelsea in the summer so why would they sell him at that price, he also has about 4 years left on his contract..Go modric go... but for high money k to help tottenham buy players better then u. am fedup of u modric

 


20 May 2012 18:10:49
Barnsley have around £2.5m to spend:

Vaz Te - £500,000 (plus £500k for going up)

Butterfield - £1.5m Tribunal (to Toon)

In :

Norwood - £500k
Hayes - free (inverness)
Doran - £300k (inverness)
Westcarr - £235k (chesterfield)
button - £200k (spurs)


Digby to sign 5 year deal !!!!!(12)(14)Vaz te willNOT sign for barnsley when he has prem football beckoningThink this post was that Barnsley are going to get another £500000 for Vaz te cos Hammers going up not they are going to sign him!He was just saying what we have got for vaz te now hammers got promoted you numpty.What makes u thing will get 1.5 m for Butterfield if goes to tribunal more like 300-400k.Can't see Barnsley adding such a clause in Vaz Te transfer deal with the owners they have.Has a west ham fan makes perfect sense ,considering they have been in the top3 most of the season to get some add ons didnt pay over the odds for himHaha westcarr isn't worth that much!No chance on barnsley having that much money to spend. most money i have known then to spend was when they got hume and that did not realy work out for us. stop dreaming and open your eyes, barnsley are not going to spend that much money even if they had it. they might spend around 200k on 1 player, a few player that are out of contract might join us aswell but that about it!Why spend money when you dont need too, we picked vaz te up for nothing< I repeat nothing and sold him for £500,000, in six months, you dont need to spend to aquire good players, youve just got to have the right man in the managers seat!!Digby signed an new deal in jan think it was a 4 year contract so y would be sign an other?If Barnsley offer anything for Westcarr I would be very suprised after a very poor season at CFC

 


20 May 2012 18:07:30
Sone Aluko could well be on his way to championship side Ipswich Town for a fee believed to be in the region of £1.2million. This coming after Ipswich registered their interest in the Nigerian last Thursday, with Neil Alexander and David Healy giving an insight on the club as well as former Wigan man Lee McCulloch expressing his respect for former manager Paul Jewell. Kyle Bartley could also make a loan move to the Suffolk club after interest in the Arsenal CB last season being renewed.

{Ed007's Note - Aluko will be available for free. His short term contract with Rangers expires this window and Rangers are struggling to meet the terms of the pre-determined contract offered to Aluko when he signed in November.}(3)(9)I did hear about Aluko heading there. Would be a very good transfer especially if on a free. Will be sad to see him leave though especially after his performance against St Johnstone last saturday!Rumours that leeds are also making an offerWouldnt suprise me, Warnock and Jewell same to have the same transfer targetsGoing to leeds or brightonIf i were aluko i'd move to a top championship club/bottom half prem team cos he's been doin gr8 recently

Some fairly reliable transfer gossip:
Norwich:
Lambert will stay as well as Holt. Lambert has identified 5 permanent signings to bolster his squads depth and quality. He wants Robert Snodgrass but will have to pay over 6m for him which is a significant proportion of his budget. Naughton will either sign on a permanent, not on loan. Curtis Davies is the man they want at centre half and will bid about 3m for the Birmingham player. Gunter is high on Lambert's wanted list again but faces competition from Southampton and Swansea for his signature. Luke Chambers is almost a definite to sign on a free. A striker may be signed with Doyle and Beckford being touted but if Lambert cannot find the right man he may look at the loan market.

Reading:
Mullins and Connolly will be signed permanently. Along with the already signed McCleary, incoming will be Mariappa for 4-5m and Butterfield from Barnsley. Jay Rodriguez is being looked at as well as Doyle from Wolves but Rodriguez is favoured at the moment. Stephen Hunt is being linked but its doubtful he will sign. McDermott still wants a RB and Wide Midfielder but names have not been heard yet.

Swansea:
They are willing to bid as much as 8m for Sigurdsson but Newcastle, Aston Villa, Arsenal, Fulham, QPR, Man U and Liverpool are all holding interest in the Icelandic midfielder but his first option is to return to Swansea. Rodgers will try again for Bates but will not overpay for him, 3m at the max. If not he will go for Collins of Villa but again will not pay over 3m. Caulker wants to return to Swansea but Spurs are not likely to allow him to leave on any basis. Marvin Emnes will likely sign for around the 3m mark. Gunter and Clyne are both wanted by Swansea as well but the stumbling block may be that Rodgers cannot agree a first team space which both are currently looking for. Swansea will attempt to sign another striker, likely one from abroad as Rodgers is running under a tight budget and cannot overpay for Championship or veteran Prem Strikers. John Guidetti is wanted on loan from Man City and a contract offer may be made to Andy Johnson.

The Insider(12)(14)Personally Mullins never really impressed me and as hes not exactly young hes not worth giving a chance, Conolly worth a punt if we can get him for a decent price but personally I'd rather the likes of Ben Mee (Burnley), Mariappa rumour looks like it has some substance, though at the moment i've heard its just a call to Watford as to the availability, no talks with agents or anything yet, Jay Rodriguez is worth a shot, Doyle may be too but again as long as it's at a decent price, Hunt's a no go, still comes aroudn to watch Noel play but very much doubt hes coming back, as for your wide midfielder comment, we just signed him, McCleary is naturally a winger but can play attacking mid too.The swansea bit is very good but we wont get bates he out for months with a knee injury so we'll go for collins and a defender from abroad..No offence to Swansea but Sigurdsson is way too good for you now. I think he'll end up at Arsenal or Spurs. I even think he could be a great long term replacement for Paul ScholesNo offence but sigursson knows what he is doing he wants to play week in week out and play some stylish football why would you go to man utd when they are playing vetrens like giggs and scholes plus hes made some importend aquatences since his time in swansea and want to stay wiv his new mrs ....inside sourceAnd get his salary at Hoffenheim/Swansea tripled by going to a top club and then getting first team football once big guns retire. He'll be playing in the champions league one day, something Swansea will never be inNo offence to the united fan but Sigurdsson is a completely different player to scholes, sigurdsson is an attacking mid where sholes is an ourstanding passer of the ball. So Sigurdsson not an ideal "replacement". I hope he goes to Swans but he is good enough as a squad player in a top 6 team. Swans fan.

hate to say it but it can be confirmed scouts are watching gillingham shote stopper paulo gazzaniga. clubs such as liverpool and fulham are the bigger of the clubs(5)(3)Tell him to wait till a big club comes in !Every Premier League side has had a scout at Priestfield last season looking at Paulo

 


20 May 2012 17:56:42
Grant Holt being linked with a proposed move to Everton - hence the transfer request(19)(11)Holt is done deal to sunderlandNo everton would be most likelyYou are most wecome, one hit wonder, won/t make 10 goals next yearPeople live in deeam world on here, everton are skintHolt is not a done deal to Sunderland. Holt, his agent and our CEO are due to sit down for clear the air talks in an hours time. There has been no offer for Grant as stated by David McNally just yesterday. His agent has said Grant doesnt want to leave the club but there are 1 or 2 issues which need to be resolved, which if not resolved mean he will push for a move. If they are, which i have faith they will be, he will stay. Unless of course a stupid offer comes in £6mil+ then id let him go with my blessing.

But as i say, the club have been very open with the situation this weekend and nothing is even close to being done in terms of a move away from the club.

Robert green discussing new contract at west ham. If he does not sigh paul robinson to be heading to upton park(20)(8)Robinson had nightmare last season would defo not want him in goal .he was to slow ,unsighted to often and conceded weak goals. el absi of wigan would be a better choice if martinez leaves wages would not be a prob and could get him for a gd price

 


20 May 2012 17:47:17
BURNLEY are lining up a double swoop for Leeds midfielder Adam Clayton and Portsmouth right-back Joel Ward.

Pompey are keen to cash in on Ward in order to ease their money problems, with Burnley likely to pay £500,000 for his signature.

But Leeds, Ipswich and Crystal Palace are also interested in Ward.(9)(13)I am a burnley fan and clayton would not leave leeds utd for us,if they have a bigger wage budget than we had in prem so if they won't pay him what he wants then we deffinately won't.Pompey need more than 500k to ease there money troublesI'm amazed that some supporters(saints mainly) are still moaning about Pompey buying the FA cup, didn't we beat Man U on the way surely they have bought most things and no mention of City , Chelsea or even Blackburn sorry petty green eyed excuses. we won it and it was great we are now in the mire wich is not but i wouldn't swap it great times if your going to be there at least compete.Wrong on Clayton and wrong on Ward, both players will have better offers than BurnleyIf pompey bought fa cup man city bought premier league saints supporters dont rave about them buying the premTrue dat.

Reo Coker
James Collins
Matt Jarvis

Outs

O'Neil
Sears
Nouble
Faubert
Faye
Pape Diop(14)(18)Cole possible on loan, Yakubu unfortunately looks to join reading, Reo-Coker looks very likely, Jarvis is joining west bromWe will be a 15 th place team give or so 1 or 2 places if they all signThe last team in the premier league that Jarvis would sign for, would be wba.Didn't Reo-Coker leave West Ham under a bit of a cloud?? said wasnt wanted there etc etc. Think O'Neil will stay and why should Cole sign for Hammers?West Ham need 2 quality full backs. Demel good enough maybe but not fit enough. McCartney no more than a squad player at that level. Try harder next time.There are at least 8 players that need to be moved on we need to solid cb like huth /james collins we need another striker because baldock needs more game time chp loan and we need fast wingers who can provide gd service and support to the front guys we have to be much more solid at the backI think 15th is a bit optimistic - may just scrape it - but I'll be surprised

THFC Spurs squad in danger
of breaking up over the
summer. Bale, Modric and
Walker likey to be subject to
big bids. Adebyeor off leaving
a scant squad who won't fancy
the Europa league fiasco(27)(6)I will love for that to happen :pObvious that Modric and Bale will look to move to a big club. Think Spurs may hang onto Walker.Walker only signed a new deal less than 2 weeks ago. Bale wont go, He has already said he is happy. Only club he would consider is Barca and even then he said he is ont thinking of the move but it is nice to be noticed. Modric possibly but again all Spurs key players are on long deals and Levy is a tough nut to crack.

I told you a few weeks ago about McCleary was joining Reading from Forest.

I also told you that Reading had made a bid for Watford's Adrian Mariappa, and that it was said to be a done deal.

Well now it's breaking on Twitter that a fee has been agreed and he is close to finalising a move to the Royals, beating off interest from Newcastle, Wigan and Southampton.(9)(17)Mariappa of Watford interested Newcastle in January as COVER until the summer as they were short in the defensive areas. He DOES NOT interest Newcastle now so i cant see how Reading have `` beaten off interest from them ``

Stoke city transfers

In - matt Jarvis - 5M
Matt Phillips-3/4 M
Owen-free pay as you play contract
Fletcher - 7 M
Martin Olsen - 4M
Tony pulis will also look at Roger Johnson or Scott Dann
Steven Nzonzi-5M


Outs - Collins
Tonge
Soares
Jones
Higginbotham

Players to be released
Nash
Fuller
Woodgate
Davies
Diao
Sidibe


Large exodus of players at stoke , with TP having to reduce his squad size due to the lack of European football and to reduce the current wage bill.(6)(31)Wolves want ten million for Fletcher so dream on with that one.Utter fiction, jarvis £5M and Fletcher £7M who told you the tea lady?God stop with the silly price tags wolves wont sell fletch for what they paid for him n wolves want 20 for both of em but im sure wolves could sell at 7 or 8 no lower 3 year contracts can play hardballReckon 4 of those players coming in will actually happen. Jarvis, Phillips, Owen & OlssenTheres no way fletcher is worth 10mil if stoke got crouch for 10, fletcher is worth around 6-8 and jarvis 5-6Crouch 10mil , fletcher i think has only got 2 be worth 6, very lucky 2 get 7, fullers not worth 6-7 and hes got strengthJarvis and Owen are both looking very likely at Stoke but can't put a finger on a fee for Jarvis and no point bickering about it as no-one knows. Has been talk of Fuller and Higginbotham going to Wolves.Crouch>FletcherFletcher is a better player than crouch. At this point in crouch's career fletcher will score more goals, he can hold the ball up and has a good resale value in relation to age. Crouch will get a few goals, physically to weak so cant hold the ball up and is wrong side of 30 so reducing resale value.What a load of garbage. When Fletcher gets 20 plus international goals then come back.

ed any blackpool rumours {Ed025's Note - only that a lot of teams are interested in ince and phillips..(9)(4)Everton after both of themHollaway will be w.b.a managerYou wish.......! Ince already said he's staying and Phillips should cost any club £2m+. Funny but you "big" clubs could have got these 2 for peanuts just 12months ago but it's Ollie thats turned them into quality players. If they end up at WBA or Stoke...you may as well stick them in your reserves and loan them out in 18months time as you couldnt bring on new players. Everton has'nt got ANY money so that's not going to happen either.....!

Cardiff Ins:

Lewis - free

Shorey - free

Lawrence - £800,000

Swanson - free

Le Fondre - £1 million(14)(13)Le Fondre is Reading's best finisher. He wont be going anywhere.

Shorey's ego wont let him drop to the Champ yet.Le Fondre wont be going any where, but if he did it would be at least three times that!Le Fondre will not be going back to the championship when he is in the Priemer League. And even if he did, hes worth like 3/4 millionLe Fondre will only be leaving, on loan if he messes up big time in the Prem

Swanson will not be joining Cardiff either, Blackburn, Leicester, Middlesboro' or Bristol City are all more likelyReading wont need le fondre when they are in the premier leagueI hope u hurry up and get Lawrence, pompey need the moneyBrighton are reportedly winning the race to sign Danny Swanson.Brighton can dream on about Swanson why would he want to go to a mid table clubWouldn't mind swanson. lawrence not bad lewis decent back up le fondre yes purely cos he scores goalsWhat about the three Norwegians we have been linked with.

Bjorn Sigurdsson and Dame N'Doye are highly linked with Berkshire club Reading FC as they search for a prolific striker to lead their charge to a mid table Premier League finish in 2012/13.(11)(11)It's Sigurdason -- not to be confused with Gyfli Sigurdsson.It's actually Sigurdarson but yeah according to Icelandic newspapers it seems we have made a bid for around 1mill but they want 3.5 mill min for him, looks like a good prospect but I feel we won't be making another move until the TSI takeover gets verified by the premier league.

 


20 May 2012 15:41:05
JORDI ALBA TO MAN UTD ?

Both Utd and Barca have expressed interest in the promising young left back and Valencia coach Unai Emery has recently hinted that the player had already been sold. He did not disclose which club Alba had been in talks with but it was assumed that that the Nou Camp would be his destination. Yesterday however, Valencia's technical director announced that Alba had not been been approached by Barcelona but does not seem to want to extend his stay with Valencia. Sir Alex Ferguson is noteably on the lookout for someone to fill Patrice Evra's boots and at a reasonable £15m, Jordi Alba appears to be on his way to Old Trafford to do exactly that.(13)(17)

 


20 May 2012 15:40:57
Reading look to add a right back and Nathaniel Clyne looks likely to be their man, with Chris Gunter as a secondary option. Clyne has attracted a lot of interest from Premiership clubs so it looks highly unlikely he'll be an Eagles player in 12/13.(10)(14)Clyne is being courted by United and Liverpool. We wont get him!

Gunter we have bid £2m and it's been rejected.Would like to see clyne in premier league, he looks quality!Clyne will be going to a bigger club, think Newcastle are after him aswell and UnitedClyne is more likely to be a Fulham player next year, but yeah as shown on this site reading probably will need a whole new team next year

 


20 May 2012 15:39:00
Brian McDermott wants to add an attacking midfielder to his Premier League squad and Joe Cole on a season long loan looks likely to happen as Hoffenheim look to keep Gylfi Sigurdsson after his successful loan spell at Swansea City.(5)(14)Reading have spoken to Liverpool, BUT he will go to a bigger club.Matt phillips to swansea 4mGyflis swansea bound mate

Leeds boss Neil Warnock looks set to bring in 2 striker in the next month. Surprisingly Jon Stead is top of Warnocks list with Leeds looking to offer £1m for his services. Also on Warnock's radar is QPR striker DJ Campbell. Leeds preparing to make a loan move for the out of favour striker.(10)(22)I heard that if qpr sack barton warnock said he will take him at leeds with paddy kenny,also joel ward,and dj cambell.....so if that happens...if....leeds will be in with a gret chance of getting promotion..Are u serious joey barton to leeds. even though wanrock and barton left on bad terms with barton saying that warnock was a useless manager. i dont think so.

Burnley to sign Chris Taylor or Marc Pugh to replace Ross Wallace who is going to either Ipswich or Celtic(9)(3)Taylor will join Leeds or Burnley

I am a friend of his family and they said that both clubs had made contact with himRoss wallace is not coming to celtic! why do people keep saying that, he has been before and he couldnt get in our first team so why would we re-sign himRoss wallace to leeds or brighton

 


20 May 2012 14:54:25
We have heard rumours that Mariappa might be going to Newcastle but if he didn't go he said that he would of been happy at Watford. But this is Very Unlikely if Clubs in the Premier League want his signature.(8)(3)Newcastle haven't bid for him.

Reading have had a bid accepted.

See Twitter. Also see @Fridays_Legacy on Twitter, as he broke this weeks ago and has been spot on with the leaks about TSI as well. Also see @maffff. He also talked about Mariappa to Reading weeks ago!Whether it's on Twitter or not, there's been nothing official and until this is announced it's just a rumour

Dicannio will sign 3 year deal for West Ham this week,so much for loyalty.
Still he did warn the Swindon board 2 weeks ago funding was needed.Number of names in the hat for the job are Marin Ling/Chris Wilder/Steve Evans plus a host of no hopers.
So sad for Swindon Fans yet it was on the cards(9)(27)There is no way Evans would be welcome at Swindon,the players and fans hate himI think you only got this rumour half right. After his shambolic first season with us resulting in getting promotion at the first time of asking, but only through the playoffs instead of automatic, Allardyce will indeed be sacked. Di Canio will be given a 25 year contract and a transfer kitty of 500 million. And Barack Obama will be the new director of football at West Ham since he has been a fan for 40 years and spent his childhood in the Chicken Run at Upton Park cheering on the mighty Hammers.
What a painstakingly stupid rumour.
If anything, Allardyce will be given a contract extension, but Di Canio won't be taking his job anytime soon...Ridiculous rumour,WHUFC will not get rid of Big Sam after getting the Hammers promotedRubbish why would Steve Evans leave Rotherham when he's building a strong team thereHe may go as a strikers coach heard that rumour some time agoI ain't a Swindon fan but I think you are saying this to unsettle Swindon because you are jealous of what a wonderful job he has done! Anyway, why would they sack big as, after he just got promotion, don't stir!

Afc Wimbledon fanWe dont need him

Porter isn't as good as has been reported.I went school with him and guess what...he aint moving... he had a trial with charlton before signing for leyton orient and didnt get inI'm a Charlton fan and he has just signed a new contract at Orient so I can see it being higher than that price tag!He hasn't signed a new orient deal yetKeep Me Posted On The Porter Situation.

Romelu Lukaku is either joining West Ham, QPR or Fulham next season on loan. Chelsea want him to move to a club still down south.(20)(15)So Tottenham, Reading, Saints aren't down South any more??

Also, not wanting to call you a blatant liar or anything... BUT Chelsea wouldn't care whether it was North, South, East or West... why would they??

Bore off!Lakaku is going to werder bremen fc on loan as part of marko marin deal.....We don't want to improve chelsea's youngsters when we have our own coming through if we take him its permanent or nothing FTIDQpr look to give up on him....LOL he's more likely to give up on QPRBecause Chelsea are going to so business with their rivals for an £18million player? Qpr never.

 


20 May 2012 14:38:38
Michael Owen has been booked for a heart check in Reading adding to the fact that reading has one of the best places to keep horses in the country and he wants to stay in the premier league it's all adding up that he could be signing for us. You heard it here first!(14)(13)Pretty certain that he's off to stoke!Berkshire - not Reading.

And no, he isn't coming here. We had a chance to get him in Jan and we said no and went for Roberts.

Stoke's chairman has just gone public saying they want him, and that's a lot closer to him don't ya think? (clearly not)He's too concerned about his horses and houses to care enough about playing for Reading. Great player but plays for himself and not the team - not what Reading needs.Heart check? The way he left Liverpool and Newcastle for Manchester U proves Thai he got no heart!So he's going to move his horses and stables from Cheshire down South to join Reading or opt to join Stoke............mmmmmmmmm tricky one. His Dad used to attend Stoke games and Owen filmed a TV show there. He lives 30 odd miles away.

 


20 May 2012 14:38:31
Stevenage trio Bostwick, Freeman and Wilson to Peterborough for £1.9m(13)(13)Chairman would want more than that for 3 players.Cant see us spending another 1.9 million on players, hope its true thoughHope this is true....probably will get a rid of a few of our listed players in part of the dealIts 1.9mil for just Bostwick & Freeman not Wilson. Bostwick is extreamly keen on a move to the posh as it means he and his family could remain in livining in the stevenage area.Bostwick was awful in play offs, no thank u

 


20 May 2012 14:37:16
Luke Moore (Swansea striker) to join Barnsley for an undisclosed fee(18)(8)Can't see Moore coming to Barnsley but what a good signing for Hill to make if it were possible.

 


20 May 2012 14:34:34
Baldock is 100% leaving West Ham on a loan deal to a Championship club after West Ham's recent promotion. The most likely destination for him seems to be either Charlton, Watford or Ipswich. Barnsley are also looking at him but that deal seems highly unlikely.(16)(3)I know this too it is charlton 100% but it's whether it's a loan or perminantI know this as well its 150% Ipswich on loanToo bad - it is 1000% WatfordAnd I know it's Watford 200%TWTD says that Allardyce has agreed with his 'close friend' Jewell that if they got promoted (which they clearly did), Ipswich would be the first in line to get Baldock on loan. Who knows whether this is true or not but I suppose time will tell.If he's going out on loan it will be up to the player where he goes.

Plymouth Argyle are taking advantage of the Romain Laurrieu - David Frio connection and are showing an interest in French Ligue 2 side Chateauroux pair:

21 year old Striker Maxime Bourgeou and 24 year old midfielder Claudio Beauvue.(10)(2)Bourgeou is a talent and would be a great signing for any league 1 or championship side. He was a youth player at st.ettiene for 6 years. Fast, strong and good in the air. Mpenza type player.

Ipswich will sign Watford winger Sean Murray for £2m this week.(2)(17)Murray is as good, maybe even better than Young was at his age. We keep hold of him this season and then if people want to pay eight figures we'll listen.This is funny!! you cant be serious! you must be dreamingNeed more than 2 milMurray will be going to prem and has already turned down Liverpool and Man city as a scholar. He would also probably cost a closer to 3 million at leastThis is the worst one ever - no change out of £20m my little tractor friend - he is worth more than your ground and squad added together - £2m -pmslUnlikely to move sideways when he could play in the premIf he said no to man city I doubt it he will go to IpswichOn what planet are you living!Ipswich wish they could have him, unfortunate for them they dont have a youth academy good enough to produce their own murrayNever in your life...he wants a career !RubbishDream onHe signed a new contract not long ago and dyche said he was worth 25mill so your a bit offGet off your high horse. He might be good but at his age you can't start going around demanding '8 figures' for him, and stop slagging off other people's clubs. This is a rumours site not a naming calling game at the playground.^ Alright. We'll take Cresswell for 100k and JET for a donut.

Murray is worth 8 figures and he's our player under contract, of course we can demand what we want.You say get off your high horse but wasn't it only last season when you sold wickham for 8 million and he had only scored about 10 goals. murray managed 7 goals since february and plays RM! he was absolute class, one of the best midfielders in the league, and still only 18 so 2 million is nonsense at this point in time although i would also agree 10 million is a gamble, but thats football these days and im in no doubt that whether it be with watford or not, he will be playing premier league football in the next few seasons.Ipswich fans are deluded. Making up BS rumours continously.I dont doubt the players ability, especially at his age he sounds like one for the future. However, we (Ipswich) did not demand '8 figures' for him as a previous poster (crystal palace fan) said they would want for Murray. We simply could not refuse the 8 million offered to us. It would be barmy if we did. And to be honest, I think that if you received a similar offer for Murray, you would do the same thing.No way murray will go to ipswichhim being Wickham

Holt to stay at Norwich(17)(18)Computer says noFound that out time agoComputer also said Ronaldo won't leave Manchester UnitedQPR and Everton want Holt and he wants away.
Think Norwich might struggle next seasonHolt does not want away, he just wants to up his wages despite having two years left on his current deal, personally I think Holt will struggle to have same impact on premier league next season, so if the right offer came in for him I would seriously consider selling himPosh spice to become Prime Minister seems as likely as Holt staying at Naaaaaarwich.Like he'd go to qpr they're a nothing club they'll go down next year ! hes loved at norwich

Adam Johnson - £7 million - Sunderland
Slavic - £2.5 million - Back to Serbia
Tevez - £20 million - Milan
Kolo Tourse - £5 million - Milan(13)(36)All those millions just trip off the keyboard as if they were nothingThat means breaking the fair play rules by 40.5 M, do you really think Man city want to be disqualified from the champions league after doing so much to get in?If you cant even spell their names correctly how can we belive youFair play rules dont come into effect till 2013-2014 season.they can spend wat they want.youll see a lot of clubs spending big this summer before the rules come inFirst person, Man City spend around £110 million per season so no the millions didn't just trip off.

Holt staying at NCFC. PL will make him clubs highest earner and make good signings to take the club forward. ie Pacheco, Lansbury, Rhodes and Curtis Davies.(6)(22)He would be wasting his time if he stays, Norwich lack ambitionYour going down next year fools so how you think your going forward dream on your skint with no ambition this is why most of your team wants outWhen lambert was asked would he be staying at Norwich he said "Ummmm don't know" that was on Sky sportsYeah I saw that, club look as though they might self-destruct after superb first season, egos will kick inSome of the reply's border on stupidity, Norwich skint - of course they are after all income from premier league prize/TV money alone was over £45M.
No ambition - that's why we have Lambert as Manager, and we have had three very successful seasons, Holt does not want to leave , he just wants to try and up his wages.Paul Lambert doesn't talk to the media like Harry Redknapp does! he hasn't given anything away or been the most charasmatic interviewee all season. So I wouldn't look too much into that. Also weren't we meant to be going down this year?? and also struggling in the championship last year?? continue under estimating norwich as always, not saying we are going to go higher, but still not relegation next season {Ed025's Note - i agree

A clayton will sign for norwich next week, j ward will replace him after turning down ipswich, he has belived to have said if i have to play in stadium that does not belong to football club it has to be good one bulit for premier L not on an old rubbish tip witch is portman road. More to point ward wants to play with a team on the up witch leeds is . A true sleeping giant, not an also. Ran like ipswich town(8)(17)Bloody cheeky budgie, Portman Road entrance turnstiles have jut been painted, better than carrott road, pewky green & yellow pahThats why he is signing for wednesdayMany seem to be upset about the success of Norwich over the last two seasons. 1) Norwich did not win the lottery, but we did gain over 40M for finishing where we did + Tv bonus. McNally has hinted towards a 20-25m summer transfer budget.

20 May 2012 13:15:51
Southend's Ryan Hall is set to sign for Shrewsbury Town for a fee of 55k.(9)(9)Too good for league two now, been our best player last two yearsMore like 550,000 KHall is worth at least at a minimum 750k with the amount of money being spent on League Two and Conference players these days!750k? next joke...Well if Tubbs is worth 800k, Barnett 1.7 million and Vardy 1.7 million then Hall is worth at a minimum 750k!Well Barnett was 1.1million and Jamie Vardy was 1 million so your already talking nonsense. Ryan Hall is in the last year of his contract at Southend and there is no chance that anyone would bid more than 200K - fact.With the add-ons on the deals for Barnett and Vardy the deals can reach 1.7 million so get your facts right and if you believe Hall would go for only 200k then you are living in a dreamland!I think you are deluded. They are all Strikers. they go for double a winger. And lets face it they where ridiculous fees. Grant Holt left Shrewsbury for half a million. Hall isnt half the worth of HoltThat is the amount of money League Two players are going for now not 5 years ago and Hall has scored 14 goals and got the highest amount of assists in professional football in England so I would say he is worth at least the amount of Tubbs.Joe hart had the most clean sheets in england and he was 600k so i very much doubt that hall will be half as much as thatWait and see, Hall will leave on a free next year!Holt isn't even that good he just has great service from pilkington and bennett!Hart was a youngster when he left Shrewsbury he had POTENTIAL. Hall is consistently performing to a high standard NOW so is worth more than the ridiculously small amounts all you Shrewsbury fans keep coming up with!Hall had a good run during the season but failed miserably to continue the run and get Southend promoted, quite simply he was poor. 200k no more.Hall has been good all season no less then 750k will take him away. Club's top goalscorer and has the countries most assists.200k? you are completely clueless and deluded, he has 20 assists and 14 goals, he is our top scorer from midfield, he is worth at least 750kHart was epic and young. Holt scored near 30 goals in a crap Shrewsbury side. Hes a winger.... 200k is steepClueless and deluded? Did he get you promotion? No he did not. He had a good run mid way through the season then tailed off at the end. He is a good player, but nowhere near the money you think. 200k no more.You really don't have a clue what your talking about do you?Are you serious? I have watched in excess of 50% of Southend's games this season. Hall is a half decent winger, he is not worth anything more than 200k max.No club would pay more than 200k for Hall. Only Southend fans think he is worth more. Good League 2 wingers do not go for 1 million etc can't believe how dull Southend fans are.And i've watched all home games and 18 away games, how many southend games have you attended to judge our players, holt and hart were unproven talents and the fees you mention don't include appearence add onsWait how is it halls fault we didn't go up, it was the managers fault for playing hoofball to benyon and eastwood who are half the size of centre backs

YawnAnd HOW can Jacobs cost £850k when he's out of contract and the compo expected to be around £250k?

No wonder BCFC are in financial trouble.Northampton are reportedly attempting to sign West Ham striker Sam Baldock for a fee worth to be around 1.25 million, also Emile Heskey and Micheal Owen will sign 3 year contracts after the new massive investment by the chairmen.Bristol City fans are becoming as deluded as Leicester/Charlton/Southampton. Jacobs and Dixon are both going to Derby, a big club, in a big stadium, on the up. Why would they go to Bristol City, who will continuously struggle on low gates and low income?Suso Santana has already declared he wants to go back to Spain where his family is based !Sandaza is ste, not even league one standard when he was at Brighton.Jacobs due to sign for Derby. Im a Northampton fan and thats what ive been toldPlease explain what finacial dificulties Bristol City are in?Bristol city have just sold nicky maynard for 1.7 million , steve lansdown is putting alot more money into the club over the summer and we have a new chairman , i think they are going to back there manager all they canIf u look on bbc u person it says northampton want a compensation of 800-900k !Muzzy wont go to you..you cant afford himWhere do you get this Bristol City in financial trouble , yes we have debt , not many clubs dont ..the biggest difference is we have one of the richest ENGLISH owners in the business, take a look Steve Lansdown personal wealth in excess of 750Million and growingSandaza has several championship clubs to choose from. Bristol City cant afford the wages he looking for.I clearly love everyone saying financial trouble we are buy a new stadium lansdown just brought bristol rugby and dont think he would ever see the football club go under because he wants TWO sports club in the top leagues in his power.

What has Reading got to do with Hull City?(3)(4)There're in the same countryNo idea.

One club is in a scenic part of the country, with vibrant and growing employment, and has recently been voted the fasted growing micro City in Europe, and the other is Hull...This won't happen, McCleary has stopped all interest we had in Phillips. An attacking midfielder, a right back and a couple of forwards are all we need.I have no idea, except that very little reading goes on in hull

 


20 May 2012 12:44:26
Got word from a very reliable source about the situation at Leeds.

Apparantley Joel Ward will be signing, but Leeds are doing all they can to delay him joining in order to save on wages over the summer. The are apparantley confident he will sign but Ken Bated genuinely resents paying the players over the summer months.

Greg Halford will also sign, and these deals are set to be finalised this week.(12)(12)Ward signing for Owls done dealHalford is not the kind of player leeds need very poor

Pogba to stay at united. Story from the England camp.

CTID(17)(16)Yeah? Already signed a pre-agreement with Juventus.The clues in the wording. Pre contract agreements only tie the player to that club should there be a move. It does not mean he can't stay put.

There are rumours circulating that john carew has been given a tour of the valley and that charlton have offered west ham a 2.5 million pound deal for him with him being paid £20,000 a week(7)(28)No chance! owners would never pay out £20k a week for an over the hill strikerCharlton will not pay 20K a weekIsn't he out of contract?Carew aint worth £20 let alone £20k, well over the hill nowHe's out of contract. Fact.Oh do me a favour, Charlton dont want cant afford old has beens like Carew.Carew was great 4/5 years ago - been downhill ever since. Not worth 2.5 k now never mind 2.5 m

Roberto Martinez will turn down the Liverpool job.(26)(18)Yeah right!Not a chance he will turn it downOh yes he will. A rival offer is on the table from a foreign clubHasn't got the expierence to manage LiverpoolMartinez won't join a sinking ship like Liverpool, he will continue his project to establish Wigan as a top 10 premier league side.It's a poison chalice for him - Liverpool fans will hound him out.

With Blackpool not going up, Reading look certain to fight off other Premier League clubs such as Stoke and Sunderland to Matt Phillips' signature.(19)(10)Liverpool are also interested!We have plenty of wingers, doubt another will be on brians listHe wont go to Reading, he will end up at a bigger club.Because Reading is such a BIG club now they got promoted. Nothings changed. Stoke and Sunderland are much better propositions than Reading isWe're not in for him! HTH's.It's not all about whose the biggest club it's about whether he'd get a chance at a bigger club. Players may join a smaller club just because they know they'll get game time where as at a big club they will just bench warm.Blackpool wont sell him at all stop putting up rumors saying otherwise and if we/ they did along with ince i can see holloway walking out and i wouldn't blame him with the reported clubs after himHe would easily get into stoke's teamKebe, McAnuff, Robson-Kanu, McCleary, Antonio (if he doesn't end up at wednesday) think we're fine for wingers atm doubt we'll be looking for another, may be wrong of course as our game relies heavily on them but we wont be attracting him to us if he's going to have to compete with Kebe and McAnuff for first place slots, Prob going to Stoke or Sunderland as he is easily better than any winger they have atm.Better than James McClean? You wanna put that glue bag down sunshine, Adam Johnson is on SAFC radar, We also have seb Larrson, Best dead ball man in the prem, Swap him for Elmo tho.Do you genuinely think that list of championship players is better than the likes of mclean and larsson?!None of those wingers are better than McLean pennant etherington or Larson

Alexandre Mendy looks likely to join Watford in the summer after his release from Chesterfield. Leeds United are also interested.(5)(11)Alex Mendy was on loan at Leeds United last year and he stated that he liked the club.He had a trial at Leeds last year but they didn't want him. They said they had to many widemen.

OTBCHa ha dream on little club, losing your star muppet that thinks he is pele for getting a couple of headersHave little Norwich suddenly won the lottery then?Zaha, over rated
Holden and Davies, no thanks. The others would definitely be welcome next year!He is too good for Norwich!15 prem goals not 2 headers, get your facts right. We are that little we are 12th best surported club in england. Thats how little we are. We might couple above list. As they will all cost abitNonsenseLeeds are the fith most supported club in England so 12th is quite rubbish in comparison

JordLUFCPilkington is the only good player at Norwich! The others just get luckyComment for JordLUFC

we might only be 12th supported club, but at least our chairman gives his Manager complete financial backing, and our Manager says very little instead preferring to do his talking with the teams performances.
Leeds on the other hand, Chairman who is tight and a Manager who never has anything good to say about any other team or players especially when he does not win, get use to hearing him winge, because Leeds will really struggle next season with Warnock in charge.............Were are leeds again? oh bottom half of champioship and were the little club haha, leeds need to face that there not as big as they use to be and are only going to get worse with Warnock and Bates in charge

By whom? The only time it's 'confirmed' is when it's said so by the club and they haven't confirmed anything on Hunts yet.I have also heard he will be staying from a reliable source, sadly he has had a recent bereavement so clearly he wont want to rush into thingsHe's rejected Yeovil confirmed on site

Charlton are after Sone Aluko, whos contract is about to expire.(9)(2)Gers are unlikely to let him go with a transfer embargo in place are they?Yes please!!Im a charlton fan and this is ridiculous.They're hardly in a position to turn down offers for any of their players though - or hadn't you heard that they're in administration? {Ed007's Note - Aluko is out of contract, there is an option for a renewal but due to Rangers current financial problems it will be difficult for them to meet the terms of it.}The administrators have a duty to pay back monies owed by the club. Achieving that goal may mean selling assets but, I doubt it will mean letting assets go for nothing. There are parties interested in buying the club and the job of selling it will be a lot easier if they have a reasonable chance of competing in next season's league title race.

With a transfer embargo in place they are unlikely to let an asset like this go for nothing, when they cannot replace him.

Scott Loach 1million Ipswich(6)(19)If marriapa leaves we will spend more than thatEustace take up a coaching role! in 3 years maybe. youre clearly no watford fan as you would know we wouldnt get gordan and that eustace is playing the best football he's played at the momentYou have no chance of getting gordonAs much as I would love to see Loach at Ipswich, I can't see us signing him anytime soon. And I know that Mariappa is supposed to be good but seriously, 5 million? I highly doubt Newcastle would pay that when they bought cabaye for around 4 million.HA! Just shows how easy it is to make up figures. Iwelumo 300k :LMariappa, if he goes, will go for no more than 4 million but more likely around 3300k for 33 year old player in the last year of their contract? ok thenHodson to Ipswich for 250K-no way. Mariappa will go for closer to 3 million but not to Newcastle. Iwelumo move is a possible. Eustace was our most consistent player and probably most effective outside Deeney towards the end of the season. Loach is a possible I guess though.

Beavon is the son of former Royal and name sake, Stuart Beavon.(5)(18)Why would a Premiership side buy a 28-year old for £1.25m who's spent most of his career in non-league?We need a striker with Premiership experience and quality. Can't see this happening personally.Beavon is joining huddersfield when rhodes leaves - 600kSo we're signing a player who's barely scored 1 in 4 games for wycombe and couldn't even keep them in league 1Got the wrong end of a complicated rumour.

Rhodes > Reading
Beavon > Huddersfield

somen tchoyi will move to wigan athletic after he was released by west bromich albion!!!(12)(6)Why would Wigan want a WBA cast off, we're better than thatTBH im a Wigan fan and I cant see this but it wouldnt suprise me :/I think Wigan would do well to get Tchoyi, especially since a few of Wigan's forwards will be leaving in the summer. He did play really well for us at times and deserves a regular place in the Premier League.TEO TEO TEO class player will be class at a team that gives him a chance and don't mind attacking players, can't believe released him, it TEO timeI always liked tchoyi at the Albion just to unpredictable. Don't think even he knew where he was going at times but he did produce some quality momentsGood player but not consistent exactly like arsenal's theo walcott

Outs: Maynard, O'neil, Faubert, Baldock, Sears

Reliable source has admitted that Big Sam has got a set list of player he was initially looking to offload if they went up.

Jimmy Hampson has said to be scouting the above players(17)(25)Rodallega won't go to a probable relegation struggler, will go to Everton or SpainComplete waffleScot brown signed for celtic for 4.4 million and west ham will need to offer more than 4.4 to sign himLol what a dreamer at least make something up people will believeOwen will go stoke , cole wont cum bak english football for a few more years and rodallega will go spurs

Michael Owen has hinted he may join Southampton this summer after being told he's been released by Man United
Source-(15)(9)No chanceWould be a good move for him
a fit Owen would be fantastic up top with Lambert but I cannot see Owen moving to far away from his race horsesSaints might go for owen if they cant get hooper, on twitter le tiss tweeted moving down south? owen replied hes open to offersHe wont join because Nigel Adkins has a habit of buying younger players also by the looks of it hooper might join southamptonTheres every chance he could join Saints as he said hes open to it, but wether they go in for him is another matter.No hes not at all hes said on twitter he wants stay local to cheshire lol dont believe anything this mugg writes on hereHow has he hinted anything when he hasn't been interviewed about his release in recent weeks?

Saints need to get their feet back on the old terracotta.For the 2 posts above, you have no clue im afraid....Le Tissier said to him about moving down south to Saints and Owen replied he was open to it...100% on his twitter account you can see for yourself..This has also been picked up by other sources of media too. It wont happen, but it was said. Check your facts before making yourselves look like fools.He will join stoke with kenwyn jones being sold for around 6milWhy would anyone want to sign him!? I am a Southampton fan and I wouldn¬īt want him anywhere near our club.
He is 32, only made 4 apps for man u last season, will more than likely get injured and be out for the most of next season and on top of that he will want and expect big wages.
...We can do much better.

Reading waiting to offer Matt Phillips his Premier league chance afer Blackpool failed to win promotion.(16)(9)He wont be going to Reading, will be at a bigger clubWas a lot of Paper talk about this deal a few weeks ago - just wonder if we'll still be interested now we've signed McCleary - we have already have 4 wingers now.Bigger club, like blackpool?That's why I was hoping that West Ham won yesterday, credit where credits due they deserve it.When he said he will be going to a bigger club he meant a bigger club in the Premier League.West ham didn't deserve it at all I hate clubs who just throw good money after bad at this type of situation anyway blackpool had more shots on target and both of west hams goals were debateable at bestI mean over the course of the season. The final was a very tightly run affair. With West Ham dominating the first half of the game and Blackpool coming on strong in the latter part of the game.

West Ham are to make a move for £2m rated Millwall defender Jack Smith.(4)(22)£2m for Millwall FB Jack Smith. My missus will drive him to Trumpton Park to sign.2mill for jack smith.. Mmmmm....Good one!! As a Millwall fanatic I loathe West Ham with a passion, but not even I am so evil that I would like the worst defender in the World to play for them! If ANYONE want Smith, they should have him, for FREE!2 mill
jack smith aint worth 2 quidJack smith terribleThink West Ham will need to cough up more than £2m.Jack Smith is not terrible, he's a very capable Championship defender who is good on the ball, has good distribution and is very calm and collected. He is also not worth £2M by a million miles. Few hundred k at most.How can you say he is terrible....clearly never seen him playI went to watch jack smith in a trial match against Dartford a few years back before he signed. one of the worst players i had ever seen didnt know why we signed him. since then in the coming seasons he has come on as a really good player and had 2 brilliant games against west ham so it wouldnt suprise me if they were interested in him at all.

2 million would be a fair price but to a differant team (not a rival) i see it lowerHmmm, upon reflection, Jack Smith is NOT terrible, he is exquisite, and he has got great hair too!As i said jack smith terrible

Luke Chadwick & Stephen Gleeson will leave MK Dons for local rivals Peterborough with Grant McCann & Nicky Ajose coming to MK Dons(14)(10)Grant mccann will not go to mk dons and luke chadwick will not leave mk dons for peterbourgh . stephen glesson is offered a new contractGrant McCann is being sighted by cardiffChadwick is injured and has gone under a knee op. Cant see him moving whilst in contract either.Chadwick has just had a knee operation, he is about 30 years old and he has 2 years left on his contract. So no he's defo not. But sadly its becoming more of a reality for Gleeson. I despise Peterborough"You despise Peterborough", in other words you are jealous. Come and join the love machine with Fergie at the wheel, there's plenty to go aroundPosh will never take gleeson he is rubbishExcept Posh bid for him last summer...
Gleeson hasn't yet made up his mind about whether to sign a new contract or not, but I can guarantee he won't be going to PeterBogHorror in his career.
As for Chadwick - he's not going anywhere and that is common knowledge.
Grant McCann is tosh compared to the quality of midfield currently at MK Dons. I fully expect him to rock up at a struggling League One side or promoted side from League Two (might fit in at Shrewsbury).
Ajose I don't know about so I'm not going to pretend I do know

He will be involved in the first team in some capacity next season - cups mostly I imagine.In my opinion, he's absolute crap, was average in L1 for Huddersfield and got screwed over by Zakuani and Bennett in the playoff final

Bristol City are coming close to a few signings

City are looking increasingly likely to pip Derby County to the signing of midfielder Michael Jacobs from Northampton

City has also agreed a fee with Cheltenham Town for Marlon Pack, the league 2 outfit are currently competing in the play-offs so Bristol City are being made to wait

Scott Laird has already come down for talks and is very close to signing

Paul Dixon is a near enough a done deal, Just dotting the i's and crossing the t's

There has been talks betwwn the two Bristol clubs for Mustapha Carayol, It is believed that Rovers wouldn't drop below £1mil

Jack Butland has been subject to a few major money offers from Bristol City with the most recent one in the region of £2mil Birmingham are not interested in selling

Adnan Januzaj looks set to be first summer signing :-)(6)(12)You are deluded.. Prem teams want Carayol for more then 1 mil as well. To even mention Butland is a joke. Jacobs is very close to joining derby.Just don't understand why he would go to a team on the down rather than a team who are known to bring through young players and the club has got loads of Premiership potential.LOL at Bristol City offered £2m. YOU WISH!

You are still very close to administration. Get your feet back on the ground!Where you get getting your facts from? Bristol City are no where near administration.Bristol City are not very close to administration, get your fact correct before posting,Close to administration? what planet are you on?Sadly the gasheads on here are so funny and they are the ones who are near administration not the reds, Carayol has never been mentioned by prem teams fans so he isnt heading that way.Administration? I wonder if Steve Landsown knows about it as he is paying £92M for the new stadium and all debt is owed to him.
As said before, he has stated 'he is in for the long term' and his son is Vice Chairman. Admin? Don't think so but good effort gas head!Comment to the comment previous... How are Bristol City nearing administration when they sold Nicky Maynard for nearly 2 Million and they are having a brand new stadium i heard to be worth 90 Million? They may have 11 Million debt but David James was on £15k a week and Maynard was on a high wage too. Players have also not been given contracts because Bristol City have got some money to spend, including the owner digging into his pocket who is worth i believe to be near £200 million? - From a Birmingham City fan.Lansdown is worth between 750-900 million according to rich list magazines... jealous gasheads perhaps who cant take the fact that we have a rich owner who is alos a bristol city fan! keep dreaming that you'll rise above us again 12 years and countingSpot on but the £200M is actually £900M. Financial fair play rules mean that massive wages in the Championship (apart from the or bust clubs) have gone. BCFC are fine financially and will move on once the new stadium gets past the daft rule holding it up. A club to watch IMO.Why do people think everyone is going to bristol? they are relegation fodder!

Neil Warnock has blasted some of Leeds United's transfer listed players in a meeting on Thursday. Apparantley he has been told by Ken Bates that there are to be no more signings until players players leave.

I understand that in response to this, Warnock met with Paul Connolly, Ramon Nunez and Adam Clayton, where he told them to up the ante in terms if finding a new club.(8)(8)This is rubbish, since warnock has arrived Parker, o'dea, webber, Delph, smith, Townsend, Vayrynen, Forrsell, Bruce, Taylor, Sam (10 players) have been left the club which frees up alot of space for Clayton Obrien Nunez rachubka connolLy and paynter to find new club, (6 players listed) if that was true then it's 6 out 6 in which hmm still leaves us well short as a squad, your talking rhubarb my friend

Now stump up or shut up.Nunez is not a free agent {Ed013's Note - He isn't, but due to his big contract at Leeds they may be forced to let him leave for free}Huntington is never signing for doncaster, they will be relegated this year and will be back to the conference before too long.We've got more chance of winning the champions league than getting relegated to the conference and a true fact is that was the first time Doncaster got relegated in 12seasons so shut it!Rovers fan here, this could happen but thing is his workrate is dreadful

They will also sign Marriappa.(5)(27)You know nothing about reading, just because we have more money (or will have soon) doesn't mean we will be paying stupid wages, that's not how we do things.Rubbish apart from le fondre thingReading aren't signing MarriapaAs a Reading fan I'd take CMS, he's not had the best season but he's quick and can finish, would be a great signing along side Jason Roberts. He works his socks off every game!As a Norwich fan I am so pleased we did not complete the transfer of CMS, I stated months ago when Norwich were rumoured to be going back for him that he has a very poor first touch and he may be able to finish but you have to control the ball first, it was no surprise to me that he did not do well in championship, and I suspect if you sign him for premier league football he will barely get a game, because despite his 110% energy he just does not appear to have the technical ability to compete at the highest level.35 k is chicken feed he will more likely be on 50 k at least with the rest of the first teamTBH CMS is essentially a Hunt type of player with a lot more pace, he hasn't really had a strong frontman to hold up the ball for him to do his thing at Brighton, depends how much we'd be paying for him, if its not too much due to this years record worth a punt, if not then leave it not really worth the risk for a faster version of a player we currently have.

Nathan Redmond to Norwich!(6)(22)Reference this post and the one about Hooper-I think you are a little deluded to think such players would consider joining a club when their manager and star player are looking as if they are about to leave.
You will need to sort out those aspects before you can move forward again.No way...where are you getting these "Facts" from ?!?!?

Wolves look set to sell 3 strikers this summer.

Sam Vokes, Bournemouth, Tranmere, Crawley £500,000
Leigh Griffiths. Barnsley, Hibernian, St Mirren, £500,000
Steven Fletcher, Sunderland, Stoke £7m(9)(21)I believe Sunderland or Stoke will be the destination of Fletcher however I think Wolves will push them more towards the £12million markFletcher is maybe worth 12 million rupeses at a push. There is no way he is worth £12m. Stoke already have 5 strikers, are looking at bigger names (as are Sunderland) and not likely to break their transfer record on the likes of Fletcher, average at best, £5m - £6m is a more likely figure.Wolves got Griffiths for around £100k and he's never played. Can't see anyone forking out £500K then.Wolves want ten million for Fletcher , the reason is not that he is worth ten million it is just to put clubs off buying him.Griffiths - 500K
Fletcher - 12 Mill (auction just about to start)If fletcher is average why does everyone seem to want to sign him? And why would wolves sell him for a loss?Fletcher 5-6million, whats wrong with you? We bought him for 7million in the first place and look how much he has improved. The board have said he wont leave for under 10million and he is definitely worth at least 11million.Can't see Wolves selling Fletcher for less than they paid. Therefore bids will need to be north of £8m.Tranmere cannot afford vokes Nevermind bfh eitherWould stoke pay 12m for Fletcher when they paid 10m for crouch? doubt itWhere do you think St Mirren or Hibs have 500k? £500 maybe10clubs looking at him 8 in England 1in Russia n 1 in GermanyGriffiths 500,000 not a chance anyone would pay that let alone barnsleyFletcher has scored 12 goals and they say a million a goal for the average striker. Being a wolves fan I think he's worth 12millFletcher scored 12 goals in a team that finished bottom of the league so therefore for a mid table team like stoke or sunderland where more chances are likely to be created he will score plenty more and therefore would be worth the investment by anyone. Also Wolves wont take a loss on him so a bid of at least 8 million will be needed but once an auction starts that figure will most likely rise to around the 10-12 million pound mark

To the Reading fan that said no thanks to Mckail Smith, you obviously have no faith in your manager. The deal will be finalised on Tuesday. Yes we did pay too much for him but he is signing as a squad player who will work his nuts off even if it is coming on for twenty mins! Brighton fans love him even though it wasn't his best season, for his work rate and endless running. Good luck in your one season in the prem. when u finish bottom the last laugh will be on you. Ps to your mate Aaron McLean plays in the championship for Hull! Sleep well!(1)(10)Blimey. this is a rumors site! if you want to moan, start writing a blog or something. Fair play there is always the possibility Reading will go down again next season BUT at least they made it to the PL, Brighton didn't even make the play offs!CMS couldn't hit a barn door if he was sitting on the handle. No thanks. We won't be signing him.GarbageYou paid £2m too much - no one in prem or realistically top half of championship needs him and £1m is top side of his real worth - you got hustled seagulls - welcome tho the big boys league!Mystic megs are out in force, nobody even knows what team we will put out yet let alone where we will finish.

Look up the word envious in the dictionary, you will find your names in the descriptionTbf cms to reading is plausible and brian mcdermott has been after him for around 2 seasons. We wanted him last season but were priced out by others and went back for him in January when TSI came in.See this is just jealousy down to the core. We will stay up and you will look like a fool for letting the green-eyed monster get to you.

Plus im not even against signing CMS, however if you think we will overpay like you did then you are sorely mistaken.To that brighton fan enjoy playing league 1 football again after you finish bottom with 5 pointsAs a Brighton fan I would be stunned If cms went to reading. I wouldnt call him a flop, as he still scored 11, but he is not prem standard. He just got way over hyped last summer. I for one am glad to see reading go up as they are a decent team with a good manager, and don't have the awful bug club syndrome of west sham or brum. I wish you lot the best of luck and hope that when we do play each other next, it'll be in the prem!I saw both the brighton-reading games and can only say he is woeful and not worth the petrol money...Bottom with five points!? I really hope you are not a reading fan as that pathetic and idiotic statement will make me loose respect for a club which I rather liked. However you are probably a palace fan as only they could be so deluded. By the way palace, the bookies think you are going to get relegated!I sent the post regarding CMS pending transfer from Reading to Brighton. Just for the record I'm not jealous of anything Reading have achieved...in fact well done to them. If anybody was at both games this season then they will tell u that We (Brighton) were outclassed at Reading and then we battered Reading but never got the result at the Amex. Our time will come but maybe not for a few seasons! You will sign CMS this week and hopefully he will do u a good service. Unfortunately no man is bigger than the team and it was clear to see his way is not suited to Poyets style of play. All that said thanks for all the effort Craig and good luck. Reading...back your manager and stop slating genuine players with a good work ethic!@comment 3 above ^^ cheers man, gotta say as a royal who's lived close to brighton for over 10 years its a shame you didn't hit playoffs, carry on like you did the latter half of the season (excusing the wet sham game) then you are looking strong for promotion, for that reason too, hope we dont snatch CMS up hopefully he'll find his shooting boots next season, potentials there, and then we'll snatch up Sigurdarson or someone like that hopefully, but yeah same as you guys said back at ya, seagulls, remind me of us a decade ago, coming into a golden age, new stadium team on the up, great manager, some great players, a few finishing touches and you'll be a force to be reckoned with!

Enough!!Why do charlton fans do this when they know that is never gonna happen.Chris Powell is looking at him - he got out his 2002 world cup Panini sticker album only last week i hearTHIS IS NOT A CAFC FAN SO STOP COMPLAINING! Any cafc fan with half a brain would realise that a football legend like del piero would go to the prem and not to a championship club even though we are amazing !Perhaps it's not Charlton fans, most of these posts seem to know little about Charlton.Charlton couldnt attract a tin can with a six foot magnet lol. Why would a legend play for a tinpot side like charlton. hes just as likely to sign for the mighty chairboysIt's a joke, keep your knickers on lads!I know who started this rumour and he is a tubby city fan trying to make charlton fans look bad. We all know we won't get him"Charlton couldnt attract a tin can with a six foot magnet lol" Yeah and Jorge Costa never played there, Charlton made it up.

But he's very injury prone and has spent most of this season on the physio bench.....not worth the effort and wouldnt make the step up as he's league 1 at very best.Hume is settled in preston no chanceWhat step up ipswich r league 1 team they cant keep fighting it come on downWhy do some fans keep saying that Ipswich will be in league 1 soon when we haven't been in that division in 50 odd years and we are the most consistent team in the championship? Some fans need to start worrying more about their own clubs.

I work with his cousin and his dad kiko and if we don't get a gud enough offer for him then jay will stay as he's claret n blue thru n thru . FACT .

I doubt that the land of the Whining Geordies is high on his list of preferred places.Not gonna happen, watford accepted a 2.5 million pound bid in january , marriappas got 1 year left on his contract i can not seeing him going for more than 3 million, especially as there is reports that reading have agreed a 1.5 million pound fee! hopefully we can have adam le fondre!Not for that much more like 3-4 million to Newcastle

Their team was too good to be in that position, they just lost 12 points because of players being sent off in winning positions

 


19 May 2012 19:30:53
To the person that said no thanks to Mckail Smith, yes we did pay too much for him. You obviously don't have faith in your manager...the deal will be announced Tuesday. He is being signed as a squad player that will run his nuts off even if it is for twenty mins. Brighton fans love him and yes it wasn't his greatest season but we applaud his hardworking ethics. Ps we don't know yet how much you are paying and yes we will probably lose on the deal but enjoy your season in the prem and when u finish bottom we will be waiting for u!(4)(7)But uh, He can't even cut it in the Championship, never mind the PL!
Face it, he is officially a flop.We may well finish bottom, but it will still be way above you!

gary hooper to southampton monday, hints everywhere look at sky sports were in for him again and on our website were unveiling something monday good signing if my logic works out lol(29)(15)we are announcing jaidi is taking a coaching role otherwise a bigger deal would of been made about it.

Well we are in for hooper again will it come of this time? Who knows would be great signing but I just don't see it happening yetYou're buying a player that looks good in the SPL but my own opinion is that he's not good enough for the Premier.
Believe me, I've seen him play both in England and ScotlandUh Monday is a press conference about Jaidi retiring....?I would love it if this was true but i belive that the press confrence on monday is about radi jaihdi becoming a coach at the club not a signingJaidi retiring and the coaching role will have been organised months ago so can't see that on its own this requires a press conference. Hooper is certain looking for a move, even the Celtic supporters are thinking it will happen and Sky do seem to be indicating something is happening. Don't normally trust Sky but Celtic do leak information.Celtic leak information? southampton are a small time club,with small time ambitions ie. yoyo club!!!!!Yes, Celtic do leak information and Southampton are ambitious enough to bid for Celtic's top scoring striker. Yoyo club? Based on what?Surely a "yoyo" club would be a term used to describe a club that repeatedly oscillates between leagues? We had one bad patch of 5 years after one of the longest runs in top division football. Now we are back on the ascendency and in a better position than we have ever been. We have more ambition than Celtic, who will only every be champions of a sh1t league for their entire future as they never will have the finances to challenge europe. If Southampton get their plans in place they could easily be a top european team if things go their way and their academy gets going (which it will, it's one of the best in the world)He can't sign before the transfer window opens - doh!Why would he move to a team who is going to struggle next season when he'll be playing in the chamions league next year? silly little people!He's going to leeds hahah sorry i joke, it's just funny they think they can sign everyone!If the press conference on monday is a signing its more likely to be jay rod, now the playoffs have finished we can sign players from the championship"Celtic leak information? southampton are a small time club,with small time ambitions ie. yoyo club!!!"........ oh thats funny...No clue at all mateYes celtic do leak information, lennon talking to the press bout the hooper bid in last transfer window? actually saints have been been approved to increase capacity to 55k weve just spent 15mil on our training facilitys and our academy is now one of the best in the world, small time ambitions? lolIm pretty sure the transfer window is open?? {Ed025's Note - not yet..Hoopers got ambitions of playing for england and if he hasnt got near the squad yet he never will playing in scotlandWhen does the window open?? {Ed025's Note - 1st julyThe international transfer window opens on 1st july but ur able to sign from english clubs once play-offs have finishedIt's Monday and no announcements.

Who is the silly little boy with the green envy in his eyes, spitting out his dummy at the thoiught that Saints can't possibly be a big team? Not big on fan size - as that doesn't count - says he! Not big on playing good football? Back to back promotions would suggest we are not doing too bad. Maybe it's because we haven't played against the top flight in 7 years. Now I get you. What is your specialist subject? Stating the bleeding obvious or not accepting change? The Saints train is rolling and get used to it!(18)(15)Just watch it get derailedYou lot are completely delusional you do not have a large fan base.
You would be lucky to scrape into the premier league base on fan base alone.Derailed? Not a chance!6000 away to palace, 48000 went to wembley, higher average than a third of premiership sides whilst in championship. Sound like a poor fan base to you? Look it up.Our fan base has been struggling recently due to our downward plight but since our ascension to the premiership we have been nearing full capacity.

Premiership will bring full capacity, and you only have to look at rival neighbouring clubs and you will see that for premiership (and high quality football) Southampton have the largest catchment area for fans, we could essentially be the driving force for a quarter of the country as we are the main team in the South of England outside London.

Our championship attendance was higher than a large number of prem clubs, next year will be higher and will only be limited by the capacity of our stadium. With success it will only grow, and like I said most of the South of England outside London will see Southampton as their closest 'big' club if we can just get a few good seasons in the prem.Don't worry about replying Saints fans......we all know that they're just peeved that their little Clubs are going no-where and we've shown every fan and media member that thought we would struggle, heart, passion and a willingness to win!

From the top of the Club to the bottom its a great place to be.......BLISS!

possible southampton ins

jay rod 7.5mil
ince 3m
michu 5m
antonio 1.5m
redman 6.5m
hooper 8m(16)(21)Where did all that money come from£90million from promotion.

Capacity sell outs in stadium next year.

Sale of Oxlade-Chamberlin.

That gets you up over £110million mark alone...

But I do share your scepticism that Saints will be prepared to spend that much, although I do like those signings we would need more defensive ones. Add in the 2 - 3 defensive signings we need and we are signing 9 players on that list... which isn't happening!Who on earth thinks Antonio could cut it in the Prem,if that's the sort of signing some think we should go for we might as well roll over and give it up now.He wasn't good enough when he was on loan before,put it to bed,the boy'd be pants against Premier teams.He's a League one player.You wont sign redmond hes top 6 team bpund, hooper? champions league next year.no chance! ince woud be a good signing but he'll stay at blackpool for another season,Oh and make you dont get 90 million upfront its 40 when promoted and 12 million a year for 4 year.Haha no way will Southampton spend £30m plus this summer , not a chanceAntonio was quality for us thats why we tried to get him back, and the saints fans sung we want antonio in the friendly against reading!It says possible ins im sure other teams are after some of these players aswell, weve been linked with all the above but i dout wil get all of them, antonio wil be playing in the championship or the prem next year, saints obviously rate him both pardew and adkins have tried to bring him backAntonio was not good enough.Jay Rod going to saints! Defo.. Burley replacing him with Pugh from afc Bournemouth!!"you don't get £90million upfront"

Absolutely irrelevant mate unless you are planning on doing transfers with cash in hand! It's the credit that is coming in that gives us increased capital and thus increased funds to spend in the transfer market, through loans and other financial instruments etc.Ince - no chance when he leaves it will not be to a more established Prem club...no disrespect but you may not survive next year... {Ed015's Note - So there's a chance then?}

 


19 May 2012 17:33:02
Baldock to either Charlton or Ipswich on loan.
Steven Fletcher to Arsenal(9)(20)Fletcher would be good signing,the guy is old fashioned striker and i mean that in a good way.Whoever gets fletcher will land a diamond22 goals in 40 starts in a poor wolves team who have struggle to score goals. Whoever signs him will be suprised just how good he is.It wont be a loan charlton ARE looking to sign him for about 1m (might not happen but i KNOW we are interested)I would hope Fletcher does sign for a club like Arsenal instead of being linked to poison like QPR or Stoke.Baldock to leeds or brightonWell he isn't going to Leeds and Brighton so sh! They have no moneyHe is suposed to go watford aswell though and that seems o be more likelyRumour that Baldock to Blackpool on season long loan...

Cheltenham Town are set to snap up
free agent goalkeeper, Philip Smith.
The Former Swindon town man has been
out of favour at Swindon and has been
left with no further intentions for a new
contract!
The Robins showed interest in Philip in
august also, with the former Swindon
man being seen at a cheltenham pre season
game it looked likely for him to sign there
and then, but a year on, the deal is on
the cards(5)(3)

Hawley and Burgess are likely to stay at Cheltenham and Crawley.

My brothers best mate is Junior Stanislas and he said he will be joining Charlton along with Jay Rodriguez in a deal worth £5m to Burnley.(2)(43)Yeah because Burnley will sell them both for that, Also Rodriguez will go to a much bigger and better club than Charlton(No Offence) but he'll be playing in the prem next seasonHA Wind your necks in Charlton fans! Absolute rubbish!Keep dreaming, JRod will only be sold to a PL team not league one teamYou Charlton guys are making your club look stupid.
Why would Rodriguez move to another Championship club?
You really are idiotic if you think that.What a load of kak

We turned down a 5 million bid from Fulham

Also I bet Charlton havent even got 5 Mill to spend.We have no idea on budget at charlton JRod will go prem imoIm a charlton fan and 1) this will most likely NOT have come from a charlton fan 2) we are a more attractive club than burnley (more ambition, money and in london) 3) one of our 3 owners is kevin cash (look him up) he has 100's of millions for us and we have more money than you, i no we wont be signing these players but think before you post something like 'Charlton dont have 5 million'!!!!!!!!!How much do they have 8 million?Just because he's called Kevin cash doesn't mean he has all the money in the world and can buy every player , as for charlton being a better team than burnley Pah they'd y u wer league 1 last year , u will see when we take 6 points off u st cunjys next season . UTCOmg your charlton mate, no offence but your nothing special, you wont sign players of that calibre.Nobody knows who the money behind Charlton is, that's why they have companies in tax havens owning the shares and front men running it.

Anyone can see this deal will not happen apart from the 12 year old that wrote it. Most of these posts are not from Charlton fans, this is obvious from the little knowledge they have of the club.Jay is worth at least 6 Alone, this rumour is a load of rubbish

 


19 May 2012 17:08:54

Swindon fans miss out yet again.
Where is this mega Rich Board???
Funds are not in place and with the Budget West Ham will give Dicanio he is bound to accept the job.
Who will Swindon appoint???? is so sad for the Fans(1)(20)Don't believe that for a minute. How stupid would Gold&Sullivan be to sack Allardyce now after winning the playoff final and giving the job to DiCanio.
DiCanio could become West Ham manager one day, but let's see what he can do with a League One or Championship club first.
Allardyce will continue to work towards making West Ham a team that'll be hard to beat, looking forward to it...Seeing West Ham have just won promotion, Allardyce won't be going anywhere soon.Same sad oxford fan writing all this bull about PDC. You can't even spell his name correctly.What an absolute load of bull, this is such a useless joke of a post and I'm a Leeds. FanPoor sad little boy

Ipswich boss Paul Jewell has been in contact with Craig Gordan about a posible move to ipswich town, the talks are believed to be going well and Paul Jewell would love to make him an ipswich town goal keeper!(10)(6)Not the only place where ive herd this!Ipswich are apparently signing every player in the world if you listen to their deluded fansI knew it wouldn't take long for an Ipswich fan to write this rubbish.

TeejLUFCOnly because you at Leeds can't sign anybody cause your skint and a small clubHow are they going to afford his wagesIts a fact Leeds are struggling to find £450'000 for Ward, Ipswich have got a sizeable cash fund from ME, to strengthen this summerThere is no sixeable amount ,clegg already said ipswich over 100% on wages to income slashing budget expect ipswich to be challenging for league 1 again

 


19 May 2012 16:06:33
Free Agent David Connolly has caused interest from Bradford city, Rotherham united and Dagenham & Redbridge. The 34 year old doesn't plan on retiring any day soon.(10)(5)He also doesn't plan to drop a division...Don't know about dropping a division. At his age he will go where suits him best rather than aiming for a specific division. I can see him playing for a decent League 1 side, but yes generally I would imagine him to go for a middle-lower championship side.

Stop moking whetever you are onNorwich want heskey!

 


19 May 2012 15:57:58
Southampton looking to bring in two strikers to create a premiership class attack force. Can expect to hear the names AKINFENWA and HESKY in a saints shirt next season.
On another note, i haven't heard many rumours that have been realistic so i thought i would post a couple i think could be possible or would be nice to see happen.
Chung Yong Lee - Bolton - 3/4Million
Dirk Marcellis - AZ Alkmaar - 1.5 Million
Marten Martaens - AZ Alkmaar - 5 Million
Tranquillo Barnetta - Bayer Leverkusen - Free(i believe)
Mavuba - Lille - 6 Million [ would love to see this happen, great player would be perfect alongside cork or schneiderlin](3)(20)Most of these are a load of rubbish.

Think something might be announced on Monday.All of it is rubbish!I enjoy FIFA as much as the next man but the glitch in the program that makes some players much much better than they are in real life, beast some would say, is just that, a glitch. With that I hope that neither hesky or that northampton player arrive and I sincerely doubt they will.A premier league class attack force involving Akinfenwa I'll have a pint of what you're having! Sounds like you've just read down the page and bundled all the rumours into one massive load of rubbish!Chung-Yong Lee will have better offers than Southampton.Akinfewa and Hesky were obviously jokes you muppets.

The others are just names you've heard elsewhere then tried to quantify a tranfer fee for, nothing new or groundbreaking here.Chung Yong Lee won't leave until January, the big clubs need to be sure that he can get back to full fitness again.Chungy isn't going anywhere. especially for 4 million and especially to Southampton

I am a Brighton fan and I'm sick of all the ipswitch fans saying how theyare going to sign every player under the sun. It is frankly ridiculous as at the moment, you are not all that attractive. You struggled to a bottom half finish and your support have been cpromised by the success of norwich. Wake up and get real! Oh, and Norwich are a bigger, better club than you and they are not a sinking ship (if they are then ipswitch must be totally sunk!).(14)(5)Well I am not an Ipswich fan Mr Brighton but you don't half look stupid with your inability to spell.Also last year - it was Brighton this and Brighton that - biggest deal deal you did was Craig Mickail SuperflopBut we still finished way above ipsh1t...What do you have in common with door.... and a .... of butter?Tbf ipswich say it every year, makes it all the better that the only class they attract is nathan ellington!1. you can't spell

Everton are set to state an interest in either Craig gordon or Allan McGregor from Rangers, other targets are Villareal midfeildet Borja V & Fulhams Clint Dempsey. Moyes could sell Jack Rodwell to Celtic in order to gather in some funds {Ed025's Note - celtic can not afford rodwell, he would be at least 15m..(2)(9)I hope Dempsey stays, but if he does move I think it'll be to a CL club. He's said he would like to play CL, otherwise very happy where he is. If he moves I think either Manchester Utd or ArsenalValero wont hack the prem,he was a fish out of water when he was at the Baggies.Why on earth would Rodwell ever go to Celtic?
1) They cant afford him
2) He wants to play for England
3) He's a premier league class player
4) Premier League teams who can afford him will buy him if he's availableRodwell is worth 25 million mate u lot r in dream land u win the league by default and u are the best since sliced breed you lot r clowns just like ur managerWinning the league by default? but 20-10=10? We were 2 points clear in December, way before Rangers sold Jelavic or were in administrationI think youll find the only team to win tainted titles is rankers over last twenty year as youll find out when they get stripped off yous this is the first title thats not been tainted in the last twenty year

19 May 2012 12:53:41
Sunderland to bring in Weimann from Aston Villa to bolster their attacking options with Kevin Davies from relegated Bolton another option. Nicklas Bentner's loan deal will not be renewed. Connar Wickham will be allowed to go out on loan to gain much needed first team experience.

Sunderland really should be looking to bring in a big name to the SOL to excite the fans. Something they haven't seen since Kevin Phillips.

With Gordon being released another Goalkeeper will need to be brought in. Rumour has it that they couldn't agree a new contract due to the players wage demands, with Sunderland being reluctant to pay high wages to a player who has spend a large portion of his Sunderland career on the long term injury list.

They will face a very tough challenge to hang on to Stephan Sessegnon who has been attracting attention from former club PSG. The player could hand in a written transfer request, should such an offer come in for him.

One thing the Sunderland fans do not want to see is O'Neill bringing in a load of Villa rejects.

A long summer ahead at the Stadium of Light.....(2)(14)K.Davies has signed a new contract at BoltonKevin Davies has just signed a contract with Bolton.You just guessingLoad of bcks. Gordon released because Westwood and Mignolet are better and he is too injury prone.
Sess staying unless someone bids 20 mill and no one will!

Dicanio to join West Ham, reason Money has not been made available to bring new players in.
Seems he warned the club that they had to decide,hence reason all is quiet.
Also Mat Ritchie/Aden Flint/Billy Bodin to leave.
Candidate for Swindon Job is martin Ling(6)(15)Same old same old...getting boring nowLOL totally untrue. More money at Swindon than West Ham even though they got promoted, and Big Sam won't leave because they got promoted. Bodin is also signing a new contract.

 


19 May 2012 12:01:28
Aston Villa's search for a new manager continues.

Martinez had talks with Randy Lerner (AVFC owner) on Thursday which is why no talks with Liverpool have gone underway.
Lambert is pleading with the Norwich board to allow him access to contact with Aston Villa.
solskjaer had possible talks with Villa on Friday & Lerner has gone back to the USA for a few days to manage some family issues.

Lerner is apparently looking to find a Director of Football at Villa Park first, Gerard Houllier could apparently be set for a shock Villa return in that job capacity.
Gus Poyet has apparently been ruled out having got no top side experience.(2)(13)So if Poyet is ruled out for having no top side experience how are:
Martinez/Solskjaer/Lambert all in the frame? none have managed a top sideTop side - A EPL team not Championship/League 1Lambert pleading to go to Villa? Lambert pleading the board not to give him permission sounds more realistic...Carroll is on 80 actually {Ed025's Note - i think he deserves the full pound..

daviebhoy08 {Ed001's Note - you couldn't be more wrong! He bought out his contract and took a pay cut to play under Dalglish actually. He was offered more by Cardiff, without the need to buy out his contract either, but took the Liverpool offer to play for his hero. It was nothing to do with money, you have no idea. I don't even know where you got this 80k nonsense from, dreaming I think, not one new player, that has arrived since FSG took over, earns over 70k a week and only one player gets that much, Suarez.}

Ian Harte is thought to be considering his options after being told by Brian Mcdermott he will only be used as cover next season. The main interested club are believed to be his former club Leeds who he would welcome the chance to go back where he would be more wanted. Reason: Yet to sign a contract which he was offered almost a month ago(9)(14)Nonsense. He's been offered a new one year deal and is currently on holiday. He knows he could be a bit part player but he has been quoted as saying he wants to be part of one final Premiership campaign before he hangs his boots up next summer.

Chances of him turning that down for a Championship club 2/10.

 


19 May 2012 02:07:57
Following his fairly consistent season, including his prolific form towards the end of the SPL season for Celtic, it is thought that Gary Hooper could be making a move back over the border into England, with a large number of teams interested in acquiring his highly sought after signature.

From a source very close to the club, I can add fuel to the ever growing fire that Gary Hooper could infact be on his way to Carrow Road subject to the future of Grant Holt following his recent transfer request. I believe that if Norwich do infact keep hold of Holt over the Summer, a number of teams are waiting and monitoring the situation very closeley, with the front-runners being West Brom who are interested in swapping Marc Antoine Fortune with the English forward.

Watch this space.(5)(16)Norwich after Hooper to replace HoltThink you are right that Hooper will move south-but it will be a good deal further south than Norwich!
You are about to lose your manager,and your top player-why would he join an unstable club?Hooper probably if moves he will go to saints
Norwich look to miss out on Rhodes and go to Fulham and holt to everton or Newcastle due to demba ba 7mil arsenal deal!Celtic bhoy here, hoops has been fantastic this year and would like to add,
I hope he stays and at least gives the champs league a go.
Don't know what money would be involved but would like to think 7m +Hi Celtic bhoy-I think you will find Hoopers 5 goals were a swan song, and he will be away.
He stalled on his new contract negotiations for a reason, and whilst he may want to play Champions League I suspect he also rates his chances at international honours, and with due respect he will not get that showing each week that he can score against rubbish defenders.Can i just remind u lot gary hooper plays in the SPL a league that isnt better than the blue square league, and you lot think he is good enough for the EPL get a grip.It isnt better than the Blue Square? One word - JelavicEmmm............to the above poster I would like to remind you that Jelavic came to the EPL from the SPL and he seems to be scoring for fun. Hooper will score goals wherever he plays - end of. EPL is miles better than the SPL and no-one will dispute that - but it is full of foreign imports hence why the england team is not great at the minute.How is the spl not better than the blue square prem? Typical english always biast. IM not backing up the spl or anything cos il admit its not the best league in the world but if the splk is so st then why do all you english prem teams buy all the best players from scotland. Heres a list

Adam rooney - birmingham
Ricardo Vaz te - west ham
James Mcarthy - wigan
James Mcarthur - wigan
gary caldwell - wigan
Connor sammon - wigan
David goodwillie - blacburn
Shaun maloney - wigan
Jos hooiveld not good enough for celtic - southampton
Darren odea not good enough for celtic - leeds
John fleck not good enough for rangers - blackpool
And many more
All these players have only left a season or 2 ago so shove you blue square premier up your assO ye but the spl is full of scottish talent hence why the national team is doing brilliantly. In fact i forgot they qualified for a major international tournament. What a pathetic thing to say. The reason why the england team is rubbish atm is because it lacks cohesion and is holding on too what brooking called the "golden generation"All of the players are in the 2 second division or bottom of the 1st I rest my caseEngland national team is an utter joke in the next 5 years they will be a laughing stock of the giants in football and when uefa bring in the domestic caps on transfer fees and wages watch all the big players leave and your league go down the pan typical thick football fanWho would swap fortune for holt, fortune been immense this season

Seagulls swoop for Swanson

Brighton are in talks with out-of-contract Dundee United player Danny Swanson's representatives over a move to the Championship. Hibs and Aberdeen are also interested in the 25-year-old winger but he would prefer a move south. (Express)(5)(9)Gus stated this weekend - why does he need a 5ft 6 scottish player when he has the best attacking midfielders in the world outside of the Premier & La Liga when Vicente re-signs.The Argus (the Sussex local paper) quotes Poyet as saying that the club have watched Swanson but have not made any approach for him.

Cardiff City ins and outs!
In
Joe Lewis-Free
Adam LeFondre-800,000
Robert Snodgrass(If he doesn't go to West Ham)-4.5 Million
Liam Lawrence-1 Million
Haris Vuckic- Season Long Loan
Outs
Ant Gerrard-1 Million(Hull)
Tom Heaton-Free
Paul Quinn-Free
Lee Naylor-Free
Peter Whittingham-6 Million(West Ham if they go up)(4)(26)Reading are not selling Le Fondre.Le Fondre is not leaving reading u have nooooo chance!!Snodgrass wouldnt go to cardiff either, why move sideways?Vuckic will be needed at Newcastle for Europa leagueWat rubbish! why would reading let their top goal scorer leave? and cardiff dont hav tht much money to spend. the owners said they were looking to cut costs so why would they spend more money and increase the wage bill? whittingham will leave for about 3/4m cos hes gonna be in the last year of his contract isn't he?To be fair Le Fondre isn't prem quality. Would be ok bench warmer though.Cardiff would not be a sideways move for Snodgrass, it would be a backward step"To be fair Le Fondre isn't prem quality. Would be ok bench warmer though."

Lets wait and see shall we.

800k, try at least 2 milSnodgrass won't come to us, if he goes anywhere it will be the prem. Le Fondre will be a benchwarmer next season and If Whitts goes it won't be for any less than 5 mill as thats his release claus in his new 3 year contract which he signed at the start of last season. Also we have started cutting the wage bill by releasing players which then frees up money to bring new players in...What if he [Snodgrass] doesnt move at all?

18 May 2012 19:54:52
through my job im at st marys every week and in the last transfer window staff there said micheal owen had been in but i heard the same thing that relocating his horses was the main problem, so see what happens there.. adam johnson would be a good signing but it would probaly be a loan deal, with wages etc.. personaly i like us to get antonio back, ok hes unproven at prem level yet but hes been destroying teams lately, the guys got bags of pace and power which the current team lacks i think, he was the star of the show at wembley infront of 50k southampton fans but mayb reading wouldnt sell him now(10)(9)I would deffo have antonio back in a flashLeague one player at best. you'd have michail antonio, over ADAM JOHNSON?Being realistic... yes I would have antonio over Johnson.

Johnson is potentially a massive ego and a huge wage we don't need unbalancing the squad. I wouldn't want to risk ti for johnson, whereas Antonio is worth the risk, he's being tearing teams apart in League 1 during the run in, if we can get him for under £1million it's a risk worth taking as he will resell back to the championship if the prem doesnt work out.Antonio had a good season last year against average players ,itsa whole new ball game in the premier league johnson would be great but i cant see it wages will be a big stumbling blockHow can somebody be potential massive ego. They either have a massive ego or they don't.^having an ego is totally circumstantial.

It's the whole "big fish, little pond" scenario.
Coming from City to Saints, he could think he is above himself rather than any equal part of the team... hence there is a potentially ego problem there.

Now pipe down and stop being pedantic. Everyone knows exactly what is meant by the above post (regardless of use of the word 'ego'), concentrate on the football rumours not semantic details.

Reports in today's Daily Blar and Daily Fail about Reading wanting to sign Joe Cole are accurate, but not on a permanent deal.

Reading have been in talks with Liverpool over a season long loan deal, offering 50% of his wages.(7)(9)He's on £80 grand we can't afford half that.He'll go to a bigger club, but credit for aiming high!How do you know what Reading can afford? That will never be made public!Because the takeover hasn't been completed yet so funds are still limited till that point. Plus our top earner is probably Jimmy Kebe after he signed his new contract and he's on at best 20K a week do you really reckon we would upset all our players by giving a loanee double that?

Don't be silly

Birmingham may have their transfer embargo lifted in July as Carson yeung is having some of his assets unfrozen(2)(12)I thought the transfer embargo was for late filing of accounts.They cant have it lifted .untill his court case about his dodgy dealings and hes cleared of all charges and that case dont start till november and could last 6 months
and if he looses the club could be come the property of his govermentIs the correct answer. They last said the accounts would be filed before the play off final, not that it matters very much to them anymore. Expect an ADMIN annoucenement in the coming weeks.The football league can lift the embargo 4 days after the accounts are published

Scouting in different countries is the way foward.All of them to Leeds, wouldnt be suprisedUnfortunately keogh won't leave Coventry as he is settled where he is but unless a significant bid comes in (not 500k) he won't be going anywhere

Charlton are looking at activating the release clause of nigel reo-coker following the Manchester clubs relegation from the premier league last weekend.(3)(17)Does nigel reo-coker not play for boltonAnd the fact he is using his release clause to play for a PREMIERSHIP team?On the plus side...

Government is re-assessing its new education plan around the Charlton area, focussing more resources toward basic geography lessons and the fundamental principles of economics.

Charlton too poor.
Bolton isn't in Manchester. {Ed003's Note - I think he meant Greater Manchester }Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham, Tameside, Stockport, Manchester, Telford and Salford = Greater Manchester. Ooooh now there's a surprise!

Perhaps it's not the schools in Charlton that require more work as it seems Geography lessons are better than those elsewhere in the country. Let's turn to economics shall we? I wonder if you know who the new owners of Charlton are and how much money they have? No? Oh dear, another surprise.Wow im 13 and i know where bolton is its as close to manchester as bury which i dont expect u 2 know anyway u think reo coker will come to us anyway he didnt keep bolton up i gess bellamy is rite he has no skillOk same guy i know the owners tony jiminez may not be worth billions but he does have contacts no one knows michael slater and kevin cash if he dus own part of us he is minted hes worth bout 5-600m charlton skools dont need work its probs just dumb retards clogging the website o yer any1 been to manchester or surrounding towns didnt think so

Grant Holt set to sign for southampton after handing in a transfer request. Norwich turned down the inital offer prompting Holt to hand in the request. Saints set to sign the norwich striker for 2million.-

ESPN news(19)(38)In your dreamsDon't want him at st Mary's.Piffle. It says no such thing on ESPN. Do have to wonder where he's going though?! Spurs to replace adebayor? Who knows?!What complete and utter toshYou're saying he will go for only 2 million pounds when in January Norwich rejected 9 million pounds for him from rangers {Ed003's Note - Nobody offered £9m for him least of all Rangers }9 million pounds ?? Are you on medication ? Cisse at Newcastle cost that, and he's a lot, lot better than Holt.I think its his agent doing his job, good luck to him if he can double his money for nx 2 years. He is not getting any younger so we have had his best years. thanks for good times grant. one thing is certain he is not leaving us for southampton, dream on saints.ncfc matt9million haha dont be silly...why make this crap up as ed has pointed out..?Can't see Saints would be interested in Holt. I believe they are still intending to bring in Hooper-his last game for Celtic looked very much like a "thanks but goodbye" performance to me, after a period where he looked rather disinterested. His salary negotiations were delayed until the end of the season and I believe this was so he would be able to compare what he had been earning, was offered by Celtic going forward in comparison to what might be on offer from EPL.
The ongoing exclusion of English players playing in Scotland from English international consideration will also be a factor.
Positive he is on the way south, and if Adkins could mix him into his current forward options then, with due respect to Holt, I don't think he would be required. (But I could see him moving with the Norwich manager to another team in the Premiership.)Holt isnt going to saints. Hes 31 years old, why would we want him when lambert is just as good as him and the same age.He wouldn't go to saints simply because he wouldn't get that much of an increase on his wages. Holt, you are greedy if it is a money issue. If you leave for more money, I hope the the team you sign for gets relegated. That's what you will get for being greedy! Nothing.

Watford to sign Shrewsbury Town striker James Collins on a free transfer. The hornets are in talks with the ex-Villa striker and are hoping to sign Collins on a 4 year deal.(10)(6)It won't be free. He's under 24, so Watford need to pay a fee.Watford have no moneyShrews will want at least £400k for CollinsWe don't have "no money". We've been selling players, we're likely to spend some money. Shrewsbury will not get £400k by tribunal, doesn't matter if they want it or not.People who keep saying we hav no money can you just please know wat you re talking about! we hav enough to sign lower league players but not millions. but we still hav some! so stop bringing up rubbish. im not sure if collins will come mainly cos of shrewsburys promotion. depends how loyal he is to tthem. he may sign a contract with a release clause if they re relegatedCollin's compensation is £150k! where is this £400k coming from? stop making stuff up!

A dominating centre midfielder, do not know a name

Outs (Apart From Released Players)
Partington- Season long loan
Barrett- Crawley Town
Stockley- Accrington Stanley(6)(10)Nice dream but not going to happen where has this link with iwelumo come from anywayIwelumo will not go to Bournemouth as he would want first team football! Can you see him getting ahead of thomas and Tubbs? Get realI don't care for O'Hara but Jarvis loves the Wolves not sure for fletchGroves has stated that Partington is now free from injury and is set to be the midfield general that AFCB have been crying out for. Going nowhere.

Calvin Andrew to sign a two year contract at Leyton Orient after a successful loan spell last season.

He will be the highest paid player at the club on 4k per week.(8)(7)Seriously, 2k a week for a donley that hasn't scored for more than a year. Get real, he should pay anyone he signs for. AWFUL AWFUL PLAYER, sorry Calv, you gave it your best at palace and whilst we remember Hillsborough, you were ste the rest of the time.I'd like to see the definition of a "successful loan spell".....he didn't score any goals!

 


18 May 2012 17:04:19
Southampton set to snap up Grant Holt now he has handed in a transfer request(17)(19)Just what Southampton need, after all they are short on Strikers aren't they!!!2million is apprantly the price saints want to payThey also rejected itWe have 4 strikers, with one possibly going out on loan or leaving...so yeah we do need another striker!Why would you want holt anyway, has no technical ability, just dives, spends more time on the floor than playing!Can't see it. As I have just posted elsewhere I think Hooper is still Saints target.Why would we still be in for hooper? He'd be behind lambert, sharp and tad in the pecking order. If we sign another striker it'll be a younger one who wont mind acting as back-up. This is the only thing I see as preventing us going for J-rod, who's cheaper but prob wouldnt (or shouldnt) want to risk bench-warming. The money would be far better spent on Johnson.

 


18 May 2012 17:02:37
Crystal Palace are in talks with West Ham's Sam Baldock and Reading's Simon Church(14)(14)You can have Church for free and id even drive him to Selhurst Park myselfChurch recently got selected for the Welsh side along side Robson Kanu. Kanu fair play but have no idea what Churchy is doing there but hopefu;lly pump his value up when/if we sell him

 


18 May 2012 17:01:15
heard we were thinking of putting in a bid of between 4 to 5 mil in for rhodes if his team dont win promotion any truth ed? {Ed005's Note - I'm sure he'd wait for an established team to enter the race for him, what league to WE play in?}(4)(3)

Grant Holt hands in transfer request

Source: Sky Sports News(30)(9)I heard he's on his way to SaintsHe has, but they have refused it!!According to bbc radio solent, saints got him to put in a transfer request so he can join them...2million is the price....welcome to st marys holt!Yep He's on his way to Ipswich, a far better club lol, he'll have to have a good scrub and steam clean before he's allowed to don the wonderful Blue shirt, and its all because he knows Lamberts moving to a bigger clubSt Marys Holt
sounds like a railway station lol

Grant Holt puts in a transfer request at Norwich City FC(13)(4)Joining southamptonNo he's not joining Southampton!!

 


18 May 2012 16:46:02
GRANT HOLT has handed in a transfer request st Norwich.

Anyone thing this'll mean he'll go to a 'bigger' club and have a terrible season next year?(18)(7)Joining southamptonNorwich have rejected his request, but Lambert will now look to sell him to the highest bidder, clearly his agent has been hawking him about, and there are better wages on offer elsewhere. my guess is Leicester, West Ham,Southampton, West Brom.
So no doubt an offer or two will now be made to the club from interested parties, hold out until near start of season and find out how bad the other club want him.
My guess is that he will not enjoy the same success next season in Premier league, so at 31 it would make financial sense for Norwich to cash in on him.He wont join the Saints, they have Lambert, who's not so dramatic in and around the box showing his diving skills

18 May 2012 16:16:59
Charlton to do a southampton and norwich next season(12)(26)Good luck with that, but I will be very surprised if you get automatic promotion next season, and may find it very difficult to make the play off spots.
Expect Leicester, Bolton & Wolves to be right up there, Blackburn (if they change the manager)might also go close, and for an outside bet Middlesborough, Birmingham & ForestNot a chance!!No chance
the mighty owls though will go straight upOooh mightyNo way in hell

 


18 May 2012 16:08:26
As a Forest fan here I'd like to prepare you not to get too excited about Gareth Mc'cleary.He's had 3 good months with us out of the last 3 seasons.He's average and the wide men you already have are much better.I think he'll be a back up player for you.I suppose he didn't cost you anything so he's worth a gamble.Anyway good luck in the prem.(6)(3)Ignore him, he's just bitter he's left, or is trying to be positive for forest.
As a forest fan, he is a raw talent and is capable of winning a match for you. He is strong, fast and can run at defenders. He can shoot with both feet, head and tackle.
The reason he has only had a good half season, is he has only played regularly for us for the last half season.
I hope he does well for you as he is a likeable bloke.

Hoppers u1Not bitter then?

 


18 May 2012 16:04:25
Southampton are closing in on the signings of Giovani Dos Santos, Tranquilo Barnetta and the loan signing of Adam Johnson from Manchester City.(12)(24)Ive heard this tooWow, if this happens i will literally eat my own toe. From a saints fan!
Tbh if one of these happens it would be amazing! don't rate Santos that highly, but you never know, he could shine at a smaller team!Dos Santos to Spanish Club
Barnetta to stay in Germany
Johnson to Newcastle!!!!!Yeah would do well at a smaller club like saintsOnly a fool would think Saints are a small club.Only a fool would think Southampton are a big team... Your have beens, there are many teams that are considered bigger than you know if you put fan base to one side. Fulham,Norwich,Aston Villa,WBA,Stoke,Sunderland and Newcastle are miles ahead of you in football terms!Were not to big were not to small were just um um um!!!

MK dons are preparing to offer Canadian international striker Ali Gerba a 2 year deal. As well as making a loan move for Spurs midfielder Tom Carroll. Also on Karl Robinsons radar is Derby County winger Lee Croft.(2)(3)Ali Gerba is an ex-player. He is not comingMK Dons will not sign Ali Gerba again, we had him a few years ago and he was shocking... Never again. Robbo has more sense than that :L

Michael Appleton will be named the new West Brom manager over the weekend. His first signing will be to appoint Micheal Owen as a player coach.
reliable source(5)(13)No experience, chairman Peace will not take a chance on an inexperienced manager after mowbray and RDM, He knows that for the Baggies to continue to move forward he needs an experienced head in the mould of Roy Hodgson in charge.Doubt it to be honest

 


18 May 2012 15:44:22
Gary Doherty is going to hold talks with Southend, former team mate Rohan Ricketts is also rumored with a move there but because of the club failing to gain promotion its going to take a decent wage offer for him to join. Southend are also interested in Jack Midson (AFC Wimbledon) and Adebayo Akinfenwa (Northampton Town) as to improve their Strike force as Freddy Eastwood is set to join a League 1 team.(4)(6)

 


18 May 2012 15:42:13
people saying barnsley have no money
to spend are wrong.
they still have the 500k from vaz te +
another 400k if they get promoted.
about 500k from the shackell deal
and will recieve around 1.5mill
for butterfield.
all this is available to keith hill for
transfers as he has already cut the
wage budget.
and keith wants at least 4 players with championshi
championship experience and around 4
without.
coming in will be
martin paterson 750k
zak whitbread free
james coppinger 350k
luke varney 600k

oliver norwood 400k
scott brown 100k
danny swanson free(5)(10)Hmm...I think that's a bit of a wish list...
Paterson - no chance
Varney - no chance (leeds, middlesborough)
Swanson - no chance (going to Brighton)
Coppinger - doubt it

Whitbread, brown and even Norwood are possible though (assuming you get a decent fee for butterfield...)Barnsley have got no chance of getting promoted, they were nearly relagated last season!On the players [othher than Vaz Te] he,s fetched to the Club I wouldn,t give him a Fiver so 2 million out of questionHe means if west ham get promotedI think the poster was referring to WEST HAM getting promoted (if they are barnsley get more money for vaz te). There is absolutely no chance of Barnsley getting promoted!Luke Varney 600k reallyDingle fantasies. Need to be looking at lower leagues ready for your forthcoming relegationGood luck with Varney....80% of the clubs he has played for have got relegated!!

 


18 May 2012 15:38:46
James constable will sign for stevenage within the next month(2)(13)Id be very suprised if he did. Only had a ok season I think and playing in Div 1 might be a tall order? I think he will leave OUFC thoughAlways raTed him can he do the kob in league 1 we may or may not find out.

 


18 May 2012 15:37:22
Swansea were only down 9 million after year 1 in the prem. This was mainly made up of the 3.5 million for Danny and other signings. They were given 47 million for where they finished through placing and television rights. Swansea are one of the only clubs in the top flight that can actually say they have money in the bank - and alot of it! And they have some BIG money sponsership deals on the table now everyone has bought into the fact that we are a good footballing club. We will never make ridiculous bids for players, but if they are worth it and the price is right and within budget, they will.
Also - I know it means nothing now, but we finished top of the fair play league which is excellent for a team coming up who usually have to fight hammer and tong and give away alot of yellow/red cards. It just shows the manner in which we did it.

Transfers - Siggy is heating up, Huw has been in Germany for a few days now and its looking positive that we will get him. Acting early to ensure we get him. Looking at around 7.75 million. Gunter is also heating up at around 2 million.

I would like to see some more spanish hidden gems come out though. I think any real star signings will comefrom that direction due to style of play. Perhaps Senna will come this year. Think we need an experienced head to rub off on the lads. We also definately need another striker. A 20 goal plus striker.(7)(6)You did not pay the players all season then, only £9m. I suspect this to be incorrect.I think it does not matter who you sign cos you will need to spend big to stay in the premier league, just not going to be good enoughWolves wba n maybe stoke im not sure are 3 clubs in the prem who were in the black when finacial reports came out not sure if theres any more ED can you help out here {Ed025's Note - i cant mate...sorry..Stoke only club in black - Swansea will be too but had to pay end of year bonuses to their squad before premiership pa9d out. They will make profits of over £22m this financial year.

 


18 May 2012 15:36:21
As a Saints fan I can honestly say Adam Johnson is far too good for us (But bloody hell Lallana on the left him on the right...TASTY!) The most ever spent on a player was 4 million on Rory Delap I cannot see us breaking our record on our return to the premiership(7)(7)You need to recognise this is not Lowe Down City, but a totally different Saints management structure. If Celtic are to be believed we have already offered £6m for Hooper in the January window, so if Adam Johnson was available I think there is every chance Saints would look at him.I can see us breaking our record but not on this playerI agree we wont sign Johnson more established prem clubs will be after him.
As for spending more then 4 million, we will. We offered more then that for Rodriguez and Hooper whilst we were in the Championship. IMO i reackon we should sign 2 central defender 1 ball winning midfield player 1 striker and most important we need pace in wide areas so Johnson fits the bill but i think its wishful thinking. or
Maybe just a Skate posting the rumour, they seem to post most of our rumours, they need a club to talk about, there not doing too good.I bet we will break our transfer record. Not saying on Adam Johnson, but I believe we will.Are you kidding me saints will break that embarrassing record for sure, look at some f the bids placed rumoured 5-7 million on Kay Rodrigues aswell as Hooper

I highly doubt we will sign adam Johnson but you can't rule it out Southampton are very ambitios and the facility's are fantastic we wouldn't compete with the top 5 due to wages but we have ambition already trying to get some big names if they come off is a different matterI think we will beat that. But only on 1 marque style signing.At last a sensible Saints fan,one who know,s the clubs limitations and that premiership survival is a marathon and not a sprint.Well, we got a highly sought after chelsea player without being in the top flight!, who incidentally is coming on leaps and bounds being played week in week out! Plus the Johnson thing really seems to be gathering pace. No smoke without fire. I'm certainly not ruling it out. Besides, be honest now, if we could get either Johnson or Hooper, given that we're now pretty solid in attack (dont get angry celtic fans! its just we have 3 very good strikers now), who would you have? If the moneys the same for the transfer. The papers say hes on 50k a week at MFC, our cap was 35k last season, allegedly rising to 45k this season. The figures arent thaaat away!

In Nige and Nic we trust!I think we will sign good players soon we do need to

Lewington is not going to millwall he is staying at mk dons.(6)(6)If True that is his BIG LOSS!COYLStay in LEAGUE ONE then!NO AMBITION!No one likes a franchise team- true Wimbledon are afc WimbledonMK Dons are going up next year anyway so there is not a lack of ambition there.

Woooeeee, its hotting up now for the signature of Joel Ward, Blackpool, Sheff Wed, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Little ol Leeds, and Ipswich, have all thrown the hat in the ring, But Ward will not be rushed into making his decision, on who he wants to join, he's talking with Blackpool & Sheffield Wednesday this weekend, so sometime next week he could be signing, BUT FOR WHO.

Join us next week for the continuing story of who will he sign for.

Here's the odds, 5/1 Blackpool & Burnley, 4/1 Palace 3/1 Leeds, 9/4 Wednesday evens Ipswich so place your bets.(7)(5)As he lives in Emsworth nr Portsmouth and his family do not want to move I can see Palace being the favourites as it's only an hour and a bit drive up the M3I'm think leeds should go for either jordan rhodes or beckford this summer... as i think we really need a top striker next season which can promise us atleast a goal in every match or two!

And there goes anothe pig overhead!

OINK!(1)(7)QPR would be more likely to sell these three for 550,000 without requiring other players. Neither outcome will happen.When hieder finished top goalscorer for qpr?

 


18 May 2012 14:59:10
Watford are in talks withe James Collins of Shrewsbury and are hoping to agree a deal by the start of next week. Is he any good?(6)(6)Young player, with bags of potential, got a good header, strong on ball, never gives up, Knows where the net is.

Future star in my opinionAbout to sign new deal at shrews next weekIf he wanted to stay at Shrewsbury he would have signed a new deal by now surely.No, Shrewsbury are talking to him next week. His agent says he's happy to stay if the money is good. ^I saw this in the paper, it never mentioned money tho, it said he just wants to play football, never mentioned wages!

 


18 May 2012 14:55:51

Sean O'Driscoll to take two ex Bournemouth yuoth strikers in Sam Vokes and Matt Paterson to Crawley Town. Vokes will cost 100K, Paterson is a free agent.

cant see vokes being sold for as little as 100k, also doubt he would go to league 1(7)(8)Voles can not even score gls at L1 level so over pricedI've heard this to. Both were very highly regarded by SOD neither have set the world alight since - could be very good signings for Crawley.Paterson couldn't get a conference team to take him never mind a league one team.

Preston chairman Peter Risdale to make "3 or 4" big name signings from a higher division, breaking the transfer record. To fund this he will use future income providing the club reach the premier league by 2019/20(6)(13)Should read " Preston Chairman Peter Ridsdale to make 3 or 4 signings to break the transfer recored and subsequently plunge Preston into financial meltdown as he did at Leeds and Cardiff". Best of luck having him as your Chairman,Shades of Rangers!Paahhha whats this for fifa 12?Is that blue square premier by any chanceRisdales a liability mate, look at his record

 


18 May 2012 14:33:09
Crawley Town on verge of financial colapse(22)(13)Seems unlikely since I would imagine that Sean O'Driscoll would have done financial due diligence on Crawley before becoming their Manager this week.Where has that come from.....I hope not but they have spent a fortune and with small crowds they must have had huge backers. Have they pulled the plugThe original backer passed away and now his family want their money back one of the reasons why your top goalscorers went before the end of the season and even evans going he spent all your cash and now he is going to spend all of Rotherhams money with this time there being no returns for what he has spentIt's been coming for a long time... Not surprised!

 


18 May 2012 14:33:07
On the news that leicester have signed vardy for a million pound i think that although he has the potential to be a great player a million pound for someone who's uoproven at championship level could be a bad decision.(7)(3)That's what they said about Ricky Lambert.Remember alan smith all those years ago look what he went on and doneMatt elliott, neil lennon ring a bellVardy is class

Norwich looking at signing

Rhodes - ST
Curtis Davies - CB
Thomkins - CB
Jack Butler - GK
Pacheco - ST
Snodgrass - LM

Not saying all these will come but heard that they're all targets

OTBC(12)(15)As a Norwich Fan, i can't see us signing all these, i don't think Pacheco is on Lambert list if he was i think he would have signed him last season. Rhodes is Fulham bound i hear.Wot no full backs, unbelievable.Jack Butland a player you obviously hadn't heard of until wednesday when the squad was announced...

 


18 May 2012 14:26:15
Michael Owen in talks with Graham Turner about a player coach role at Shrewsbury Town(8)(28)He's taliking to Di Canio at Swindon about a player / Coach role....providing he can replace PDC in a year when PDC moves on!! Swindon certainly a place that ex players cut their managerial teeth.Both of you are chatting rubbish he's currently away thinking about what to do. he hasn't spoken to anyone yet! I know this is a rumours page but some of them are terrible. Plus he only has the sufficient badges to coach in league two, so as Shrewsbury are in league one he wont be able to join as a player coach until he fulfils the sufficient coaching badgesNo chance of this happening. Said in an interview, he will not drop down a division to the Championship (so no chance of Lge 1) as he thinks he can still play at the highest level

I'd just like to pop on here and say that swap deals DO NOT happen in England.

I will happily state that no Premier League clubs will swap players with each other, whether it's a straight swap or a part-exchange. They don't happen.

So don't come on here saying so-and-so plus 5million for so-and-so - it won't happen.

Thank you.

Nikolay Bollukov(2)(6)Ok, so Stephen Ireland and £24 million didnt come to villa as part of the Milner to City deal then?-Ashley Cole - William Gallas (+£5M)
-Berbatov- £30M + F Campbell (loan)

Although Unlikely, stranger things have happened such as the famous deals listed.Funny, cause as a Villa fan I seem to remember us getting Ireland as part of a swap deal with Milner, and Carew as part of a swap deal with Milan Baros. Must be my imagination.Theres a first time for everything so shut up coz u dont know if swap deals will happenAlso didnt stephen ireland and james milner get put in a swap plus cash deal

An annoucment to be made at Portsmouth today or tommorow regards ne ownership of the club. Pre season friendly have all ready been arrange for next season. Season ticket pricess are to be announced and Appleton has stated he has a list of players he wants for next season. He cant do any thing until the Transfer embargo has been lifted. PUP PPU(2)(8)There is no announcement due today or tomorrow, your still in the same situation.Wake up and smell the coffee my friend there is no Fairy Godmother coming to help youThere is an announcement, but its Chainrai proposing a new CVA and taking the club on so they are not liquidated. However this is not a done deal by far, it has to be approved by the creditors and the Football League have to approve Chainrai. If all that goes ahead its still not all roses as all hes interested in is getting his money back.Not best news but just been announced that Balram Chanrai has put a bid to take club back over. Looks like the original poster was correct. The coffee smells OK by the wayWell he's no Fairy Godmother (and I really wish it was someone else) But I'm pretty sure it was an announcement so I'll drink the coffee, if I can't enjoy it.We will see Scummer, youare going to hate it when we are back in the Prem and you will be in the Championship maybe even lower.
Enjoy it whilst it last because it wont last long.Read Pompey's The News Balram Chainrai has submited a bid to regain control, not ideal but what else is on the table.You are a very long way off from even considering being in the Premier League! Im a Saints fan and I will be honest I know quite a few good pompey fans who "get" the situation they are in, then theres pompey fans like the previous poster who seem to have no clue at all..You l never ever get back
to the premiership
start living in the real worldWasn't Chanrai partly to blame for all this in the first place? Ive no sympathy for Portsmouth fans, you didnt worry about the wage bll and obviously impending debt when you won the FA cup and now its come home to roost you want sympathy. CVA = cheats charter!!Chanrai won't be there for very long - bet you he'll be gone by the end of November.

Portsmouth will be ok in the long run, but do not expect promotion back to the Championship until the middle of the decade.Cant wait until teams like southampton,man city chelsea and teams like that loose their owners.There are teams out there that dont even know they got debt then one day bang its announced there owner has left (abrahmovic) and they are in admin and dipping down the leaguesI agree chanrai will be gone before november but i feel we will be OKPompey will nevver die, I don't like chanrai but he needs to keep the club alive, so he doesn't loose his money

Saints are in the midst of completing a season long loan move for Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea are keen for him to gain some premier league experience and my source at St. Marys suggests he will be arriving next Monday to go through a medical. Loan fee for the season in the region of £1.5 million.(16)(9)OMG Romelu Lukaku would be amazing IMO but cant see it happening, i can see him going somewere on loan just not to us. I would imagine there will be a host of Prem clubs after him, teams like Sunderland, Stoke, Everton established Prem clubs. I would love it to happen just dont think it will.

 


18 May 2012 13:53:21
Never going to happen unless Liverpool agree to a loan deal with reading paying less than 20% of his weekly salary. I'm a Reading FC fan but cannot see us spending more than 20k a week on any player! keep dreaming. Like wise Michael Owen wont happen as too injury prone.(4)(1)NO it wont happen, I agree.

There seems to be a lot of speculation linking Michael Owen to Portsmouth , whilst Owen stated he does not want to play for a championship side he still could possibly sign for the Fratton park outfit due to the fact they will be playing in league one.(3)(20)They've got no money they'd struggle to field un under 16 sideHave the Schools finished for the day already!!. This must have been posted by a kid - no chance.Fiddlesticks boy ! Hes going to BRIGHTON. Confirmed.We got more chance of signing Dr David Owen. Still this story made me chuckle

Barnsley boss Keith Hill is very close to bringing in two players over the weekend.
The first is midfielder David Bell from Coventry. City, who have been relegated to League 1, accepted a transfer request for the former Rushden and Luton player and could cost around £250,000.
The second deal will be Swindon defender Aden Flint. The 22 year old has impressed Hill in the last year with the League 2 champions and could cost the Oakwell side around £350,000.(6)(10)That will buy you a 3rd of Aden flint if your lucky!Please take David Bell he is awful, officially one of the worst players I have ever seen at Coventry, can't beat his man, can't cross and injury prone.Ill drive bell there myself , but this is a lie no one would want him if they ever watched himBell has got as much talent as michael mcindoh

Nigel Adkins has had 2 bids rejected for Crystal Palace's youngster Nathaniel Clyne. They are now considering a player plus money deal which would send Danny Butterfield back to the club where he spent a large amount of his career.(12)(7)Lol who thinks this stuff upWhat do you mean "Who thinks this stuff up"...This is actually one rumour thats realistic for Saints.The fact that Clyne is out of contract makes it laughableNo chanceWhy do people keep saying Clyne is out of contract so any payment is laughable? He is under 24 so a fee has to be paid and if a fee can't be agreed then it is set by tribunal. Clubs can still offer Fee's, and or players, like a normal transfer. Get your facts right before dissing other people.

With some sources suggesting that Liverpool are approaching up to 12 candidates for the vacant managerial job at the club it raises the question of who these men could be. The obvious candidates are Roberto Martinez, Andre Villas-Boas, Rafael Benitez, Fabio Capello, Pep Guardiola, Brendan Rodgers, Paul Lambert, Louis van Gaal and J√ľrgen Klopp. But the question that remains, who are the other 3 candidates? Rumour has it that Jose Mourinho could be in line after winning the La Liga with Real Madrid and possibly looking for a new challenge. The other two managers are unclear and various different sources continue to speculate. Some believe that either Steven Gerrard or Jamie Carragher, veterans of the club, could be asked to make the step up to player-manager but this is unlikely as the Liverpool officials want a bright young manager. FSG's main target is Pep Guardiola but would he cut short his break from football? And would he be able to repeat his success from Barcelona at Liverpool? All of this remains to be seen but at the present moment, Roberto Martinez and Andre Villas-Boas remain the bookies favourites.(9)(8)Who gives a monkeys?
Even Brendan Rodgers will not speak to them.Ye as if liverpool r gunna win anything again 4 next 10 years at least.Liverpool won the Carling Cup and got to the FA Cup Final with an average squad, it can only get betterYeah, winning the Carling cup...spending £100m just to beat a Championship team on penalties.Just going to ignore the fact they beat City & Chelsea to get there are you?

swansea have a transfer budget of around £25 million.....

why do people keep saying we can't afford anyone?(9)(15)How do you know how much they have to spend, we can all make up imaginary sums but most of us choose not to be so deluded.Make up sums? bck page of the local newspaper on wednesday that we have made 46 million from tv appearances, plus 12 million from promotion last year and about 25 million from the 40 million upfront fee we got from promotion plus tickets sales, merchandise sales, and other income! we have more than enough money !You cant afford anyone!Divide by 10Clearly guess work, Brendan Rogers is like Paul Lambert and with a club of similar size and financial clout.
Both have a healthy budget after a very successful season in premier. Both clubs are financially sound and get maximum revenue from season ticket sales, basically selling out, they both have good sponsor backing
However both are very astute managers and will spend sensibly targeting up and coming younger players, both enjoy great team spirit which has played a huge part in their success and will not want to disrupt that by going after big established stars that also come with big ego's.
Example Stoke city spent serious money last season and where did they finish, I suspect they will struggle next year because rumour has it that the owners have told Pulis to sell to generate any funds for new players. £8M for Crouch ? (10 goals) and both Holt - (15 goals ) Morrison & Graham all out scored him, and what did they pay for Kenwyne Jones(1 goal) and Cameron Jerome(4 goals)
So its not all about the price you pay for a player, more the right players for your squad and the right coaching.You, doubters write well, however, all of the sums add up! Considering the fact the swans already had a decent amount of money and weren't constrained financially before promotion and haven't spent too much this season, with revenues, ticket sales, promotion money, more money coming from staying in the league and money for finishing where we and bonuses for the fair play league, we have more than enough to compete financially!

Rumours circulating that Redknapp could be able to completely transform his current Tottenham squad. Departures could include Cudicini, Gomez, Assou-Ekotto, Luka Modric (a possible target for Manchester United and City) and Gareth Bale (Barca bound) to fund his new signings. These signings could include Eden Hazard, Fernando Torres, Emilio Izaguirre and Yohan Cabaye.(6)(22)Cudicini and Gomez is out of contract, so they are free to go. Bale is not even close to going to Barcelona! Its a stupid rumours from a "reporter" in a tabloid.Emilio will not leave celticIn your dreamsPretty much all of this is nonsense

Footballers most loved player, Joey Barton is looking to move to a different league with Inter Milan being his most preferred choice. {Ed025's Note - a move to rugby league would be more apt..(7)(19)He wouldn't make Milan's reservesI think he should try wweInter? Honestly? Why on earth would Inter even know who Joey Barton is? Supposing they do know who he is - why on earth would they want him?!

He is as good as his footballing record suggests - lower mid-table at best...Load of rubbish...he is on the Chisora / Hay undercard....he hasn't realised yet that a boxing ref will stand back and allow his opponent to smack him back!! I think he will pull out though when he discovers that there will be no one to jump in to protect him....his opponent is little Jimmy Krankie and the smart money is on Barton getting knocked out in the first round.

Ipswich town are looking to strengthen their squad with the possibility of Colchester United keeper Ben Williams joining for a fee at around £500k. Whilst upfront Connor Wickham could be a possible loan signing for the tractor boys and there has been an enquiry from Ipswich town to Manchester United regarding Dimitar Berbatov.(4)(10)Berbatov to Ipswich! - Absolute Classic!Are the kids on half term in Ipswich or something - lots of bogus Ipswich rumours doing the rounds this week.Williams may well be as he said he is settled in east anglia so it will be u's ipst or naaaaaaaaaaaaarich but he is a free transfer

Colchester United are supposedly chasing Northampton Town hitman Akinfenwa for a supposed £100k. They are also chasing reading sensation Adam le Fondre due to their strong links with Reading. This fee is believed to be close to £2 million.(2)(16)We won't be selling Alf.Akinfenwa is out of contract!Why do people insist on posting rumors about le fond, hes loved by the Reading fans and will definitely feature in the first team next season. Hes not going anywhere. period.Yeah good one that considering robbie cowling put 4 million into training complex and stated it will be bosmans onlyLe fondre will not be going to colchester, keep dreaming, he is well above that standard.Why would ALF drop down to League One. He showed last year that he could do it in the Championship. He would definately get on the bench in the prem and your saying he'd prefer to drop two divisionsBayo's not 'out of contract'100k? they turned down 170k from crawley in march....Adebayo akinfenwa is still in contact till 2013. get your facts right.

 


18 May 2012 11:53:15
Michael Owen seems to be attracting a lot of interest from numerous Premier League and Championship sides. Clubs that are considered to be racing for his signature are Everton (however unlikely due to his Liverpool roots), Reading, Southampton, Leeds and Charlton.(9)(12)Nobody will give him a normal contract - its only "pay for play". Has Owen played 10 games in a row since he left Liverpool(Real Madrid, Newcastle, Manchester U) ??Leeds cant even keep mcormac so how can they pay owens medical billsDon't think Owen will be fussed about his Liverpool "roots" - I think he just spent 3 years at Man United...

And he has already said he isn't interested in the ChampionshipChampionship clubs are out of luck as he doesnt want to drop down a league.You know this is nonsense because you have included Leeds. You cant even afford to keep your best players (McCormack and Snoddy) so how could you afford Owen! MuppetsNot a chance that he will go to Leeds, Charlton or especially Southampton.
His stables are in Cheshire, cant see him moving too far from that area - maybe that leaves Everton as the likely destination.He will not be interesting Charlton thats for sure, we have a transfer policy and he would not fall into it. Not saying dont want him far from it but, lets face it's not going to happen for Charlton is it?I can tell all of the people starting the owen rumours he is def not going to southampton or anywhere in England as he will sign a pay as you play with basic salary for Celtic. Once this is complete Celtic will evaluate their strike force for a possible depature (I am a saints fan but not looking to open up the silly Hooper rumours).

Further more Martinez will be the manager bar any last minute hic ups and DW has already spoken to steve Bruce about a possible return to Wigan.

Southampton are looking to load out younger brother of Swansea striker Sinclair to either Bournmouth or Donny.As far as i am aware owen is/was an everton fan, saying he won't go there because of his liverpool roots is ridiculous considering he joined man utd!Owen is an evertonian ..i am a liverpool fan but it is true he is a blueOwen's roots are Blue, he just played for Liverpool that's all.

With Yaya Toure's agent claiming that he could leave Machester City to find a 'new challenge' Man City will struggle to replace him as he proved priceless throughout the season and was thoroughly missed when he left for the African Cup of Nations. Possible replacements include Modric (not as strong as Toure and not as good defensively but is always a threat going forward) or could a player already in the Manchester City squad fill Toure's boots? Maybe James Milner who deserves a first team run out especially after his England call up or Nigel de Jong who is great defensively and strong but does he posses the playmaking abilities? His goal against Liverpool in the Carling Cup semi-final at Anfield suggests he does.(8)(4)

Michael Owen is expected to be on the radar of numerous Premier League and Championship sides including Everton (unlikely due to his Liverpool roots), Reading, Wigan and Charlton.(6)(7)His Liverpool roots mean nothing. He been a Man Utd bench and physio table warmer for last 3 years.Very strong rumour i've heard suggests Tony Pulis will take a gamble and offer a pay as you play deal!Same as above he is NOT going to Charlton!Everton manager is smarter that that, so are most other premier league managers, he's way past his best, constantly injured and more interested in Horse racing these days, maybe its his agent posting this rubbish on this site trying to drum up some offers.

Heard rumours of a Beckford/McCormack swap deal that could be in the offing. If true in any degree, could be the reason for McCormack rejecting his new deal.

Personally, I approve. McCormack, while impressive, has been inconsistent, something that Beckford, for all his flaws, never was when he wore a White shirt. He was consistently lazy, its true, but he consistently got in those areas and funnily enough it was always his name on the scoresheet. Warnock looking at rekindling the Beckford/Becchio combination. Again, I reiterate, only whisperings, and often these are spontaneously invented. I'll look into it.
wally(11)(4)As an LCFC fan - I approve this swapI think Beckford's wages will prevent this one happening. Cuddly Ken is a tightwad and I think he had a dig at Beckford when he left last time - no love lost there.

Bit of pace, but poor delivery, and doesn't have a trick to get past a defender.As O'neill bid less than a million for Davies in January and he's now been relegated and is 35 years old, I somehow doubt Sunderland would spend 6.5mil on him...As much as I want him to, I can't see Muamba being back for next seasonMark Davies not Kevin DaviesThere is no way Lee or Holden will stay at Bolton as saints have already agreed fees for themNo chance of Holden leaving if he was i will be to a club a lot bigger than SouthamptonChungy is not leaving and I've spoken to Stuart myself, he's definitely staying.

Everton's top 7 transfer targets

1.Steven Pienaar - 4m - Spurs
2.Steven Naismith - 2m - Rangers
3.Mohamed Diame - Free - Wigan
4.Martin Olsson - 3m - Blackburn
5.Junior Hoillett - Free - Blackburn
6.Balazs Megyeri - 800,000 - Olympiakos
7.Matt Phillps - 2.5m - Blackpool
8.Michael Owen - Free - Man Utd
9.Jonas Olsson - 1m - WBA
10.Romelu Lukaku - Loan - Chelsea(23)(19)Can you count?Good luck getting Olson for £1mTop 7 then you go and list 10? Maths is not your strong point.You'll have to pay Blackburn compensation for Junior Hoillett as his under 24.Would Everton have to sell first before they buy?Olsson is out of contract so your comment 'good luck on getting olson for £1m' i say good luck on getting £1m for himHoilet expected to go for 6million at tribunal and 5/6 bigger clubs after him, the olsons valuations are insultingOlsson has a year left. We'd be better off getting nothing next year and getting another season out of himA bit funny comming from a Everton fan :) - but if you get Pienaar and Naismith for 6 mill and have money to pay for them - you should be happy!Olson isn't out of contract get your facts straightSo which of Everton's players is being sold to fund all this? Baines? Fellaini? {Ed025's Note - none of them....he is saying they are targets, not that they will all sign..Jonas Olsson does indeed have one year left on his current deal and Albion would never sell him for a million! As one other posted said, it would be better to run down his contract than let him go for next to nothing. I think it would take a bid of 5m for Albion to part company with him now. Some people really need to get their facts right before posting.But that is 10! 2+2 = 5

Crawley Town interested in Enoch
Showunmi after being released by
Tranmere. After Crawley losing their
two tallys men Tubbs and Barnett, they
could do with an experienced striker that
can score goals.(10)(6)Why would you sign Enoch then? He does not score goals and has been a shadow of his former self since breaking his leg. Tranmere released him simply because he does not score.As a tranmere fan myself he is capable of scoring 10-13 goals a season he just didnt have the right players around him at tranmere and was injured most of this seasonShame he cant score goals though isnt it!He got a few last season

stevenage chairman phila wallace
has said that the club have recived
offers for contracted players at the
club but stevenage are not in a
financial position to sell unless its
a real head turning offer, and if the
personal terms are life changing
then they wont open talks.

source stevenage site(6)(1)If your in such a good financial state as you claim you better start increasing your crowds otherwise you wont be able to afford players remember wage cap 65% of all income players wages so unless you ;ot increase you entrance fee nd cram as many away support in your away stand yes from personal expriance of being there 2 - 3 to a seat you wont surviveHope you go bust! and go back to your natural level The isthmian league north.Your both bitter people.
stevenage are a league team and wont be in the non league for a long timeIncrease crowd size? We wasn't even the smallest average crowd in League 1... I assume you want those with less like Bury & Rochdale to go bust and leave the upper tiers as well... or what about the 12 teams that are 'smaller' than us in League 2!! Oh, sorry did we also forget to say that we have no debt whatsoever... so unfortunately for those who really hate us (for whatever reason) we can't go bust.

Southampton planning swoop for Adam Johnson somewhere in the region of £8m. Adkins sees him as giving perfect balance on the right for Lallana.(18)(21)OH MY GOD.!!
Please let this be true.
Source.?It would all depend on his wages..if this rumour is true of course.Now this is one Saints rumour which seems believable!In my opinion Adam Johnson is one of the most underrated premier league players, City could and should easily be able to get £20+ million if they decide to sell him. And for his sake I hope he would go to a bigger club than Southampton.. It's a joke how he's not in the England squad reallyI am a saints fan but a lot of relations from manchester and they say there is some weight in this story and there is strong rumours coming out of the etihad but talking 6.5 million coyrWhy would Adam go to southhampton for a relegation battle? He's got the ability to be at a top club playing week in week out.I'm a saints fan, would love to see him at saints but can't see it happening, too good for us really and wages might be a problemDowning £20m v Johnson £6.5 - 8m ? it's a crazy world !

fletcher his staying at wolves .fletcher turns down a move to sunderland ,i hope jarvis and ohara stays ,other than that the rest of wolves players can leave iff i was stale i would build ,a team around those 3 players(3)(16)Very doubtful..I fully expect Fletcher and Jarvis to leave along with others.Flecher turned down the move to sunderland, but don't get your hoprs up, everton's aproach my get a very differant answer !All the prem quality players will be jumping ship, well all 2 of them Jarvis and Fletcher.Doubt Everton can afford Fletcher! they hardly have 10p to spend let alone 8-10 million {Ed025's Note - your valuation is well out...we would not pay more than 3m...as he would only be a squad player for us..

Striker Sam Vokes is not wanted by Wolves and Watford are expected to make a 250,00 offer for him. Dorus De Vries (Goal Keeper) will be on a 9 month loan to Watford for next season.(5)(11)Would question the validity of this when our 1st choice keeper is out injured until October. So why would we loan out ou 2nd choice.You may get Vokes but will possibly cost more than that, don't reckon you will get De Vries due to Hennesseys injury though.Absolute rubbish.....considering henners is out until christmasVokes has signed for brighton on a permanent basis...and wolves no1 hennesey is injured...de vries is going nowhere...utter rubbish

Celtic are seriously about to make Scot, Grahame Dorrians a target for the left wing slot. The only consideration was that he was a Rangers fan as a kid but Lennon fancies Scots, Irish and Welsh, English accents in the dressing room in order to create a team work ethic which will carry his young champions squad into the Champions League. Lennon requires a left winger for more penetration and Ross Wallace is the back up option. This has come from a Celtic player today and is the truth.(3)(4)Can't see why any player would leave the premier league to join Celtic.Maybe they would get sick of losing all the time or they would want to play in the clWhy would he want to stay with a team who would class finishing tenth as a great season or got to celtic and have a chance of three trophies even if the standard of football is not as good

Swindon try end of season move Ludogorets Razgrad midfield Mladen Kaöćelan. Montenegro international who is finish contract in January share agent with Swindon menedzer Paolo Di Canio and Bulgarian press say move will go ahead. The money is no decided.(4)(1)Sigh...here we go again.
STATEMENT ISSUED YESTERDAY: The playing budget is noy yet decided. Paolo Di Canio will be buying ENGLISH players and intends to target Players from the first division and the championship.
Although theyu have said this I still think a move for O'Kane will now progress after last nights result and if Cheltenham fail at Wembley then a move for Pack is on the cards.Di canio has said 80% british, so that still allows for a couple of foreign signings which I think will do the squad good overall. (a couple of good unknown quantities if he can get them right)

 


18 May 2012 00:20:52
Middlesbrough will make a loan move for ex player Leory Lita, depending on if they can free up wages by the sale of Scott McDonald who recently turned down a 100k a week offer.(3)(33)100k a week rubbish, boro couldnt afford that on a player100k a week for a player as lame as him pigs might flyMcDonald was offered a 100k a week contract from a Saudi club!The 100k a week was offered from the middle east not Boro
