To whoever will be the newcastle manager in 20102011 season,

i have a few suggestions on transfer targets

in

Jorge Fucile Rb Porto
Philip Degen Rb Liverpool
Emiliano Insua Lb Liverpool
Jonas Olsson Cb West Brom
Sandro DM/MC Internacional
Elias DM/MC Corinthians
Dentinho LM Corinthians
Kim Kallstrom AM Lyon free
Ivan Obolo AM/ST AIK (Swedish)
Jose Paolo Guerrero St Hamburg free
Mariano Pavone Betis St

out
Michael Williamson
Ryan Taylor
Danny Simpson
Fitz Hall loan return
Joey Barton
Nicky Butt to old
Haris Vuckic loan
Fabrice Pancrate
Nile Ranger loan
Shola Ameobi
Leon Best

THESE SIGNINGS WOULD ONLY BE FOR SURVIVAL IN PREMIER LEAGUE!! I WOULD BE HAPPY IF WE FINNISHED 15TH!!
KIM KALLSTROM AND J.P GUERRERO ON A FREE WOULD BE SMART SIGNINGS! END OF CONTRACTS IN JUNE!

 

22 Apr 2010 21:54:23
Blackpool will sign Darren Ambrose as a replacement for Adam when he goes for £5million minimum Other targets for Ollie will be Gary Hooper, DJ Campbell and Stephen Dobbie.

 

22 Apr 2010 21:33:43
Man U transfer this summer

Ins
Milner
Smalling
Bale
Huntelaar
Benzeama
Silva

Outs
Tosic
FabioLoan
Berbatov
Anderson
MachedaLoan

Huntelaar will join from AC Milan in a swap deal for Berbatov.
Bale will sign for 20 million.
Silva for 17 million.
Benzeama for 25 million.
And
Milner for 25 million

But obviously this is very unlikely because Man United don't have this amount of money because they are in huge debt.SAF will only buy a few players for the right price.

 

22 Apr 2010 21:41:49
Why Would Arsenal want to sign Rob Green, He isn't even a good keeper.

Pep Guirdiola to take over as Arsenal Boss once A.Wenger has taken over at France or Real Madrid (Within Next 3 Years)

 

22 Apr 2010 20:48:39
Moussa Sissoko is a box to box midfield player, not a cb or a dcm, that's his midfield partner Etienne Capoue who used to play CB but now plays dcm
Spurs tried to buy him last summer and were quoted 18 mill euro's.
He's not a cb, he's not a dcm and Toulouse won't be selling him for 12 or 13 million
He is an excellent box to box player though and this season has added a decent goal tally
Whether Wenger will be prepared to pay the money it would take to get him is another issue

 

22 Apr 2010 20:49:50
Birmingham City Manager Alex Mcleish Will Use His 30 Million War Chest to break City's Transfer Record by spending 12 Million On Fenerbache's Daniel Guiza. Mcleish has been a fan of Guiza since his Getafe days, and tried to sign him for Rangers back in the 2005 2006 season. He is also Interested In Taking Villareal Striker Jozy Altidore for a cut price 5.5 Million pound deal. He has also joined numerous teams for Morten Gamst Pedsersen, Who is avalible on a free

Mourinho is set to join man utd next summer as alex ferguson prepares to step down.

joe cole has been stated sayin he wants to go back to his routes and rejoin west ham.

 

22 Apr 2010 20:01:06
To the person with the gerrard rumour,
How can he be in court as we speak if hes in madrid for the europa tie?

 

22 Apr 2010 19:33:17
Arsenal to sign a total of 6 players in the summer, of which 4 will be for the first team.
these are Adler10, Zapata11, ChamakhF and Hazard14, and then Lukaku8 and Savic2 for the future. if gallas leaves, another defender may also be signed. this player is likely to be Moussa Sissoko11, who Wenger believes can play DCM, CM and CB.
campbell will stay for a season, but gallas is likely to move on, possibly to roma. traore, fabianski and eduardo to be sold, replaced by Botelho(loan return), adler and chamakh respectively. hazard will be an attacking addition not intended to replace anyone as such, but zapata's arrival signals the end for silvestre and senderos. with nordtveit also being promoted, we may have adequate cover for gallas, but only if djourou stays fit.
in: Adler10, Zapata11, Sissoko11, Hazard14, ChamakhF, Lukaku8, Savic2. plus Galindo, Botelho, Nordtveit, Lansbury, Sunu and Wellington Silva.
out: SilvestreF, SenderosF, MeridaF, GallasF, Fabianski2, Traore3, Simpson4, Eduardo7, VelaL, MannoneL, WilshereL.

Is the rumours true about D.I.C buying LFC.I think we all need put out of our misery. YNWA

 

22 Apr 2010 18:57:43
To all of the people that keep saying 'the yanks will do a pompey' and 'they will sell their best players to pocket the money' IDIOTS! the yanks have officially put Martin Broughton in charge of selling the club, with an amount they want to make. Barclays and Broughton have already gone public stating that the yanks valuation is way of the mark, (yanks want £800 mil bank says anywhere around £500 mil would be a very good price) the valuation without the best players in the team would be considerably less so lets be sensible, it would be like selling a car with no wheels, not gonna happen.
My prediction for next season.. New owners, a handfull of mediocre players to add a bit of depth and fresh faces, but alot of pre contract agreements for star players that will stay with their current clubs at the moment to get champs league, then move to Liverpool if they get a top 4 finish next season.
Gerrard is 50/50 to leave, he is living seperate from his WAG but can't bare to move away from his kids, if he leaves he will take Alex & the girls abroad to try and save his family.
Finally.. Rodallega to anfield and Owen to Goodison

As a leeds united fan i would love and have heard we are intrested in making the following signings in the summer:

lee bowyer free
alan smith free
nick montgomery free
nicky maynard 2 million
david goodwillie 1.5 million
emanuel pogatetz 2 million
carl dickinson free
owain fon williams free

some of these signings will happen only if we are promoted.

if we are still in league one we will only bring in free transfers with bates making no money available to grayson!

 

22 Apr 2010 19:08:43
R, green to arsenal 9m done deal.. parker to aston villa 8m done deal.. upson to liverpool 8m done deal.. ins forster, sidwell, senderos.

 

22 Apr 2010 19:08:59
Thierry Henry to Everton, off mate there is more chance of them signing Messi lol, Henry will never play in the premier league again unless it was for a return to Arsenal.
There will be a few new faces at the emirates next season with Chamakh the only real defiante at the moment, but can see the likes of Hazard and Van der Varrt signing along with Lacina Traore of Cluj, at the back expect Savic and another center back with real quality. Definately a new goalkeeper but with so many names being thrown around it's hard to see who but I can see Hart being the front runner. Watch this space

 

22 Apr 2010 18:36:24
Arsenal targets
Neuer Alder and Lloris are all linked.
Van der Wiel Metzelder Savic Cahill Hangeland Mexes
Toulalan Gonalons Sissoko
Hazard Suarez Silva
and ofcourse Chamakh

I think they will get
Neuer Metzelder Cahill Toulalan Hazard Chamakh
Iv heard that if Jack Rodwell and James Milner will be sold AW will make bids for them.
Suarez of Ajax could be in a years time along with Lukaku.
Campbell will be retained but Gallas wants too much money and wenger wants to reduce the wage bill

 

22 Apr 2010 18:38:44

Good news on the horizon for LFC.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has made an offer to buy the club.

Torres is going nowhere he didn't sign a new contract last summer for nothing. If you notice, alot of Liverpools players have signed new contracts recently why could that be I wonder? None of them have any reason to leave, because they know that the club is up for sale, and whatever way you look at it, that means that things are only going to get better. Sorry to dissapoint the Citeh and Chavski fans too, but he would never play for another English club has everyone forgotton how he turned down at least two approaches from Manure, before he moved to Liverpool because he only wanted to play for one English club. The same is true about Spain he will only play for Athletico in that country. When he does leave Liverpool, it will be to Italy only, unless he is very old, and then he will return to Athletico.

There are however strong rumours circulating about Stevie G. To be honest though, after the season hes had, if someone offered 40m for him, and they could replace him with Milner for 20m, then who'd be laughing?

Oh and just one final point. I would like to say that there will be very few if any big transfers this summer. Anyone that says there will be is lieing. It is World Cup year, and history goes to show that there are very few, if any big name transfers when it is World Cup year.

Real story. The Norwich manager Paul Lambert has just left the Celtic Ground after having a meeting with the chairman, seems like he is leaving to go to Celtic in the summer after winning promotion with Norwich.

Whoever wrote that has no idea about celtic. Celtic are not hiring Norwich at all they are hiring Zola as they like his style of football and bringing through the youth . You have no idea mate

 

22 Apr 2010 18:05:51
Everton set to sign thierry henry confirmed sightings of the french striker meeting with clubs representatives said to of been persuaded by fellow french forward lois saha with also heard from reliable source michael carrick will be making move to aston villa with james milner moving the other way carrick has bought a house in birmingham so it seems fergie is thinking of the future of his beloved united with uncomfirmed rumours that dimitir berbatov leaving for germany expect united to buy at least one striker to take pressure off wayne rooney but don't beleive links with david villa it will most likely be younger player such as karim benzema or alexandre pato

 

22 Apr 2010 18:12:24
Ribery will join Chelsea in the summer with Jose Bosingwa going the other way. And also David Silva and Karim Benzema will move to Manchester Utd. Baerbatov looks set to join AC Milan as Frank Rijjkard will manage them next season.

 

22 Apr 2010 18:24:33
To who put this in:
Gerrard moving abroad in the summer because his wife's having an affair with a Derby County player and he's got a 16 year old pregnant, and she's keeping it. Apparently everyone in Liverpoolhas already accepted that he's going. He's in court at the moment trying to stop it all coming out so Capello doesn't kick him out of the world cup squad.
Kris Commons is the Derby player

Reply: is this the same chris commons who is 5.6ft & who's partner gave birth to his daughter in january, some people on here are full of sht & that's from someone in liverpool & in his interview with guillem balague on the eve of the athletico madrid game gerrard dosen't sound like he's about to leave liverpool..
Onto real rumours:
Liverpool looking at milner, mata, silva, villa, bale, martinez, jones, & every other player the papers are linking us with cause that's all any of you know is what the papers say & even me coming out of retirement?

A friend of mine works in a bar in Leicester and he says Matt Oakley was in there last week and was overheard telling Andy Impey that he was moving to QPR in the summer in a swap deal for Akos Buzsacky.

 

22 Apr 2010 16:48:55
Was told my bertie auld that celtic want to bring in david o'leary as manager of celtic. he says that wim jansen could come in as director of football. he also said that there is no way that keane will stay but the striker that celtic are looking at is shane long of reading o'neill told lennon he would be a good signing if he stayed as manager. bertie says paddy mc court isgoing to shine next year and it is all a load of crap there is no way he will leave mc geady staying boruc staying hinkel stayin nayloe going braafeild going kamara going.

 

22 Apr 2010 16:54:11
My housemate is the Southampton club Masseur. He has told me that Alan Pardew is being lined up for the Crystal Palace job if they stay up. And he's heard that former saints player Chris Marsden will be taking over the rains at the St. Marys with Carl Leaburn as his right hand man.

 

22 Apr 2010 17:01:10
Man city have offered joe cole a 40 mil 4 year contract to make him the highest paid english player . any leeds united rumours ? leeds are debt free now so im guessing they might spend !

Real story. The Norwich manager Paul Lambert has just left the Celtic Ground after having a meeting with the chairman, seems like he is leaving to go to Celtic in the summer after winning promotion with Norwich.

 

22 Apr 2010 17:31:12
To the person who suggested Magner and co taking over at Celtic this is a lot of rubbish. It is rumoured that more shares will be made available but these will be under written by Desmond and Sean Quinn to make funds available for the incoming manager. On that note i have heard that is very unlikely that Lennon will get the job as he has a pending court case hanging over him. He is being sued for 3million as he acted as a guarantor for a company in Ireland that went down the tubes and creditors now chasin Lenny for the dosh. Apparently Levein has been approached and is interested. I hope Lennon is still involved in some way at the club though.

Keep the faith

 

22 Apr 2010 16:41:03
JUST IN.. from the same guy who reported the john terry thing 2 days before it got out.

Gerrard moving abroad in the summer because his wife's having an affair with a Derby County player and he's got a 16 year old pregnant, and she's keeping it. Apparently everyone in Liverpoolhas already accepted that he's going. He's in court at the moment trying to stop it all coming out so Capello doesn't kick him out of the world cup squad.

22 Apr 2010 16:15:22
Real Rumour..i previously left a rumour on sol campbell.have friends within top spots at most high league clubs, latest huge news is that welshman gareth bale is being tracked HUGELY by there arch rivals arsenal and rumours are that arsenal have discussed 10m plus a player, player being Gael Clichy. bizzare transfer between two rivals but the bid has not been accepted or rejected thus far.and everton boss david moyes is interested in a 5m bid for celtic's Scott brown, he feels he has the passion and desire to be ok in the premiership as steven pienaar is attracting big interest from top european clubs, including bayern munich. huga rodallega has told martinez he doesn't want to stay at wigan for another year and favourites to sign him are believe it or not liverpool fc. who may offer 8m or around that figure and attempt to use players such as degen or benayoun as bait. only rumour around man utd is that they are close to clinching a deal for FC Koln's Lukas Podolski. 11m being the offer.

Jo Daniels, keep of the Jack eh'lad. The Yanks selling Torres, Kuyty, Masch etc. before goin home is utter bullsht, if so the price of the club would drop enormously.

22 Apr 2010 14:24:04
Just been confirmed by Roberto Mancini himself that he is INTERESTED in signing Torres.

Possibly a £5565m bid to be put on the table.

Also, Chamahk (free) to sign 4 year deal for arsenal worth £10.4m at the end of the season.
No precontract deal has been signed.

 

22 Apr 2010 14:30:22

Arsenal and Liverpool to fight it out for two CBs in the summer. The first is Bolton's Gary Cahill, likely to be available for between 1214 million. The second is Rangers youngster Danny Wilson, thought to be worth around 8 million. I see Cahill going to Arsenal and Wilson going to Liverpool.
Arsenal to sign two of the worlds most exciting prospects in Belgian duo Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku of Lille and Anderlecht respectively.
Other Wenger targets include Hugo Lloris, Adam Matthews, Moussa Sissoko and of course Marouane Chamakh.

 

22 Apr 2010 12:15:44

To the person who said
"ARE ALL THE REST OF LIVERPOOL FANS REALLY THAT STUPID?

juan mata played for valencia, a place a fair bit away from madrid so how would he be friends with torres, mata doesn't make the cut for the spain team and didn't come into the valencia side until after torres left spain, so how in gods creation are they suddenly friends and rafa will bring him to anfield?? HE WONT, THATS THE ANSWER YOU WANT!! if we went on friends with who, messi would be at arsenal with cesc, xabi alonso and iniesta would be at everton with arteta, tevez at us with mash, that rumour on rafa getting him because there friends was pathetic"

Juan Mata was a Real Madrid youth player before he went to Valencia on a free trasfer in 2007. Plus he has played with Torres in the Spanish team a few times so it is possible they could be friends.

In other news Liverpool have made an enquiry for Thierry Henry who could leave Barcelona but most likely to Italy or France.

 

22 Apr 2010 13:12:21
Arsenal are interested in signing Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper " Rene Adler "

 

22 Apr 2010 12:06:03
Phoned my mate who works at finch farm its true about henry being at everton they are trying to sign him on a two year deal on wages of 70,000 per week.

 

22 Apr 2010 11:38:11
Liverpool will have a new owner by the start of next season. however, what the new owner won't have will be the biggest surprise. No Torres, Mashcerano, Babel or Kuyt. The Americans have informed the players agents they need to sell these players to help sell the club. The reason is that the yanks will do a "Pompey" before they hand over the keys to Anfield. Sell the players, sell the club, keep all the money and then exit stage left. Nothing in place in Premier League rules stopping the present owners doing this.

Heard it here first.

If they go up
Daniel Bogdanovic, out of contract

Gary Mcsheffrey, out of contract
Lee Naylor, out of contract
Gavin McCann, out of contract
and loads of loan over the course of the season

if they stay down
Billy Paynter, out of contract

and loads of loan over the course of the season

 

22 Apr 2010 11:33:56
My uncle works for a big bank in Riga, Latvia. The bank is part owned by George Gillett and I have it on good authority that Liverpool will snap up Latvian starlets Kristaps Blanks and Vitalijis Maksimenko in the summer. Both players play for Skonto Riga and are set to become big stars. They would cost next to nothing which is why Hicks and Gillett are willing to take the gamble on them.

You heard it here first.

Big rumour coming in from Belgium: Arsenal are in talks over an £8m mmove for Anderlecht's 16yr old sensational striker Romelu Lukaku. The player, his family and his agent agree Wenger is the best man to turn him into a world beater. This signals the end for Eduardo, whose no.9 shirt will be inherited by Lukaku. Wenger, who has sent scout Gilles Grimandi to watch him multiple times, has decided to make a move to complete the signing soon after the end of the premier league season.

To all people laughing at this:
Birminghams new owner is Going To Be r Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud Worth 20.3 Bn ranked 13th richest man in march , his promised to build a super stadium, THIS COULD VERY WELL HAPPEN:

In the wake of investment bank Seymour Pierce's challenge to Yeung and Blues THEY HAVE THREATENED TO EFFECTIVELY TAKE OVER THE RUNNING OF THE CLUB UNLESS THEY ARE PAID A £2.2 million finder's fee whispers about Yeung's credibility have started up again and the running war against gold and sullivan over unpaid debts carson yeung could sell up.

If this is not paid then seymour pierce can take shares in the club and sell them to someone like prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud.

When thaksin shinawatra bought man city in 2007 he paid 81.6million the next year he sold them for 2000 million carson yeung could follow in his footsteps. carson yeung paid £81.51 million to by blues in 2009 how much would prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud pay for the club? double

TO THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS..

Also Torres, Rooney, Bale and Milner will join Birmingham City, not. lol

Look guys no way will Harry Redknapp let Garath Bale leave now that Spurs are getting somwhere. Bentley and Keane to Aston Villa.

 

22 Apr 2010 10:31:40
ARE ALL THE REST OF LIVERPOOL FANS REALLY THAT STUPID?

juan mata played for valencia, a place a fair bit away from madrid so how would he be friends with torres, mata doesn't make the cut for the spain team and didn't come into the valencia side until after torres left spain, so how in gods creation are they suddenly friends and rafa will bring him to anfield?? HE WONT, THATS THE ANSWER YOU WANT!! if we went on friends with who, messi would be at arsenal with cesc, xabi alonso and iniesta would be at everton with arteta, tevez at us with mash, that rumour on rafa getting him because there friends was pathetic

david villa, david silva, juan mata, sergio aguero, gonzalo higauin, fernando gago, none of these will sign for us, broughton said he wants to take away 100 million of our debt before we look at transfers, so were is the 3040 million for each of these players coming from, our takeover won't be done till november, we are looking at having to get in some free transfers and low cost players this summer, not spend 30 million on each of those 6 players, we don't need a further 180 mill debt, we will never get rid of the yanks then!

I live down the road from finch farm, and i have just seen thiery henry, drive into finch farm!! this is no joke, could moyes get the most out of him? in moyes we trust!

If Wolves stay up don't be surprised if an offer for Robbie Keane comes up, he always said he would join them if they were stable in pl so a loan might be on the cards for some part of next season. Celtic can't afford to keep him the gamble failed and now they will really struggle for CL qualification.

I expect the playoff winners to swoop for Marc Wilson at Pompey, good young player. James will want first team football or nothing, he has a year left of playing then a media career at BBC or sky.

Papa Bouba Diop to join Stoke, big strong guy fits the requirement for Stoke. Finnan could make a return to Fulham.

I'm sick of hearing all these Liverpool rumours on the site, all this ownership stuff is so boring, Liverpool used to be a really special club almost mythical, but you only have Gerrard, Carra and a bunch of nobodies with no passion or fight. Torres is good and its not about the players not being good, they just don't have that special quality that previous liverpool teams had.

 

22 Apr 2010 10:18:32
Ex Inter star adriano to join liverpool in the summer on a season long loan with a view to a perminant move.silva and mata being chased by liverpool and barca , both clubs will get one of them but don't know which to which . wait and see.

22 Apr 2010 10:20:31
With regards to gareth bale joining manchester utd? consider this to be saf up to his usual tricks! it seems spurs are playing wdll and app this is worrying saf to the point he is using his press contacts to unsettle both club and player? bale is valued cash only at 30mill one other thing bale surrered a bad injury and loss of form with the player claiming he at least ows the club those two years back!

I've just heard Rangers are interested in signing Jim O'Brien from Motherwell, WTF, if that's the standard we are going for we can forget the league, cups & champions league next season.

With friction at the brittania stadium bein high between tuncay and pulis, plus some of the players westbrom albion are looking to capitalise on this and take him to the midlands for around 5 million.pulis is willing to let him go to booster his own kitty and 5 million will be enough.dimatteo sees tuncay as sum1 who could find the net on a pretty regular basis if hes given the correct service.no disrespect to stoke u have to play to ur owm teams strengths but it doesn't suit tuncay the way thy play n tht is why in large he has been pretty dissapointing.

stoke have been keeping tabs on..yakubu and anichebe of everton.

 

22 Apr 2010 09:42:09
The biggest move this summer will involve zlatan ibrahimovic moving to man.city.this will be for around 55.60 million.barce feel he just hasnt quite fitted into the way tht guardiola wants him to.he likes his players to be versatile n mobile.city will offer him upwards of 150k a week, most likly 200 k n will be the highest earner in football.barce want to replace him with either of torres or villa.villa the more likly but if torres does want out of liverpool after the world cup barce will be chasing him.

ibrahimovic to m.city 60 mil
villa to barce 30 mill

 

22 Apr 2010 07:31:55
Is it possible that Liverpool will not have any funds for transfer window?THanks!

 

22 Apr 2010 07:41:25
Chelsea Summer 2010

OUT: Deco, Ballack, J Cole, Anelka, Kalou, A Cole, Belletti, Ferreira

In for Deco it seems will come Rafael van der Vaart, though Pjanic, Dzagoev and Teixeira all play roughly the same role and are younger and cheaper, Dzagoev is known as a big Chelsea fan, Pjanic's UCL performances for OL apparently have sparked the interest of Real and Teixeira was the best player at the recent Youth World Cup in Egypt, all should at least receive some consideration. David Silva is another option, probably destined for one of Spain's big 2 but a true coup if he were to come to Stamford Bridge. Danny has often spoke of his desire to join Chelsea but I don't know if he is quite good enough.

For Joe Cole, the versatile Angel di Maria who can play on either side would be good, but a genuine right winger like Gai Assulin would probably be better. Quaresma is an option but the problem is which Quaresma you are getting, the guy who you want on your side or the guy you want to sit on the side. Thiago Alcantara is only really an option if Cesc returns to Barca, he's also really a central mid but could spend some time out on the right.

For Belletti and Ferreira obviously we have several young defenders coming through so we'll only need one signing. Neven Subotic, David Luiz and Bruno Alves have all been mentioned, with Luiz probably the best option.

As for Kalou there are several options, Moussa Dembele and Seydou Doumbia both highly talented and strong physical forwards, who as one_boyz87 has noted fit in well with our style of play. They are both young, 22, and though potentially outclassed by their rising countrymen (Romelu Lukaku and Lacina Traore) they would both be good signings (as would Lukaku, who is a virtual must, and Traore). To two Belgians, two Ivorians add two Brazilians Neymar and Nilmar, both of whom should also be considered serious contenders for Kalou's job.

For Anelka, the clear front runner is Aguero, he may not exactly fit our style immediately, but his class is apparent to all. David Villa is a difficult one, his class is also not in doubt, but he'd be rather expensive considering his age and probably not the best option. Pato seems destined to one day join Chelsea and despite current appeals by his manager that he will not he will remain a target my guess another year of failure at Milan will convince him to jump ship. Finally there is Luis Suarez who we apparently have first refusal on, presumably a refusal we'll only act upon if Citeh outbids us in the race for Aguero/Villa.

Michael Ballack should be replaced by Bastian Schweinsteiger, one of the big names not signed to replace Deco, or should we have a problem with our local player quota, Ashley Young. He is both very talented and very local two good things.

As for Ashley Cole, Juan Manuel Vargas is the only real option I see, I hope we don't loose Ashley, though Vargas is good. Dani Alves obvioulsy plays on the right and is not a real option to replace Ashley, but could be part of swap deal with Barca for Ashley, while if Real win the chase then perhaps a Kaka unhappy at Real could rejoin Carlo at Stamford Bridge.

As for youth players Romelu Lukaku is a must, Urreta would be great alongside Kakuta or di Maria he's probably a 2012 signing. Christian Eriksen has also been attracting a lot of interest. Ki SungYueng is talented (interest from SAF) and would be a boon for Chelsea merch sales in Korea and Takayumi Morimoto, is a bright young star in Serie A, and would blast our Japanese Merch sales into the stratosphere (no load to carry either as he's also interesting Fergie) they could perhaps be used like that Chinese striker at Man U a few years ago, only a bit more regularly. Igor Akinfeev should be brought in to replace Cech in the near future (they can fight for the top job over the next 12 months or so until Cech leaves).

 

22 Apr 2010 08:46:52
Man City have agreed a mammoth £65m deal with Barcelona for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Barcelona feel he has been a big flop and will replace him with David Villa for £35m. Jerome Boateng will also be joining the Cashed Up Club. The deal with Hamburg was agreed last month but things have been kept quiet with Hamburg still in the Europa League. He will transfer there for £14m. Mancini also wants a centre midfielder and will go for Yoann Gourcuff. The man from Bordeaux is rated in the £25m bracket. Man City will definately sign more players, but who remains to be seen. Fernando Torres will NOT sign for Man City, as he hates the philosophy of BUY BUY BUY!

 

22 Apr 2010 08:57:09
For the moron who wrote this


Paul Lambert will not leave Norwich for Celtic. The Scottish league is a joke and Celtic and Rangers are ridiculous clubs that are going nowhere fast. Lambert will spend another year with Norwich before going to ANY premier league club as the money and security are much greater.

Norwich will need to sign a new keeper as Forster will be backup at Newcastle. Expect a clearout of Cureton to anybody, anywhere. Whiggins to Bournemouth. Gill back to Exeter. Elliot return on loan. Berthel Askou back to Europe. Rose will be signed as I imagine will a few more faces as the new season gets nearer.

How dare a Norwich city fan call any club ridiculous!! 2 words mate DELIAH SMITH!!
Yes, Paul Lambert is a good manager but what planet are you living on if you think he could walk into ANY premier league club?? I don't hear man utd, chelsea or arsenal knocking his door down for his signiture.

Now for some celtic rumours
Lennon will be offered a 1 year rolling contract and despite a poor season both on and off the field, money will be available
Keane could be offered another year loan (depending on gudjohnsonn staying at spurs)
Samaras, Hinkel, loovens will all be moved on
st ledger, Kamara (perm) and possibly geovanni from hull to come in.

Glasgow Celtic, European cup winners
Norwich City enough said.

 

22 Apr 2010 09:15:02
A French guy I work with gave me an update on Mr Ribry. Check out his history on Wikipedia, he is a troubled lad (my French pal used far stronger words) and, despite his huge talent, the other side of him keeps raising its head. The latest chapter for him is that he is no longer wanted at Bayern Munich due to his offfield antics. In addition, Real Madrid have apparently closed the door to him for the same reason. These offfield antics might even threaten his place in the French World Cup team.

Also, Mr Benzema is enjoying life in Madrid a little too much for Real's liking, which is why they want to offload him. Old Red Nose has been linked with him and he probably fancies the challenge of taming him due to his regrets in relation to Gazza.

 

22 Apr 2010 04:04:38
Adam pearson is to share his stake in hull as they are doomed to relegation.

pete gadsby might be the new chairman.

 

22 Apr 2010 05:59:30
Real madrid are to sell one of either higuan or benzema.
barca will sell of iniesta as he is loosing form and does not fit the bill.
david silva will definatly be leaving, valencia plan to sign fran merida on a free transfer to rpelace him.

also to the guy who said this

"Torres, Mascherano, an Reina have all pledged their loyalty to LFC. This means probabley that a few of their mates ae ciming in in the summer. Torres and Reina are grea friends with all three of villa silva and mata. One, if not two of these will happen. Mascherano has had a lot of influence on players wanting t come to LFC (maxi for example?). Mascherano is best friends with aguero, who would actually be prefered to villa, and is also very good friends with Higuain. All 5 of these players have a personal liking of Rafa benitez. Expect three of these to come in, probabley most likely are Aguero, Silva, and mata."

just because they are best freinds does not mean rafa will bring them to liverpool.
messi and fabregas have never hidden the fact they have been best freinds since they where like 10 years old. does that all of a sudden mean messi will join arsenal ?
also aguero will not join a team that's not in the champions league PERIOD.
