I won the competition sunderland had and i, along with other people were able to train alongside the first time for a day and we also had a chat to roy keane, and he told us after hes signed 2 strikers he will go for Taye Taiwo and Anton ferdinand, and he was very impressed with alonso last saturday and is thinking of making an ambitious bid for him as keane knows hes unsettled and keane talked to rafa after the game to discuss this and rafa told keane cisse is available on a season long loan
Rangers will attempt to sign one more player. This player will be a defender, likely a versatile one who can play RB aswell as CB. This player could be Vasillis Torosidis from Olympiakos. He could cost around £4m. Either him, or Massimo Oddo from Milan as an attacking full–back.
Mido > Wigan
Marcos Senna > Fenerbahce
Ledley King > Liverpool (£12.5m)
Lee Naylor > Villa
It seems that quaresma is heading to anfield after the owners agree to splash the cash for him and make considerable profit by the sale of shirts rather than bring average players whom can sell nothing.
Inter couldn't compete and have turn down to menez.
Lol i wonder if no–one rates Joe Cole or if the just think that Chelsea's stupid. Even if Chelsea did sign both Kaka and Robinho, why would Chelsea sell Englands most consistent player and their player of the year to their rivals for £15 million. And SAF is going to be using Anderson more often this year so i highly doubt he is going to sell him for a measly £10 million after they paid £18 million for him just a year ago. And finally Aguero will likely join Man Utd next year especially if Liverpool come 3rd or 4th again.
Finally onto rumours, with Robinho coming out and publicly stating that he wants to leave Real, Chelsea will launch a bid of around 40 million euros so expect him to sign by the 29th. They may also try to tempt Milan into selling Kaka however it is more likely he will either sign in January or next year.
David Moyes is to be sacked early next week. Slavan Bilic is to be installed as the new Everton Manager. Moyes's inability to attract new signings and a £50 million transfer budget in January has Excited the X–Everton centre half back to Goodison.
Can everyone stop saying that aguero is replacing ronaldo at man utd because he plays a different position but he will be joining for around £40 million next summer and alexis sanchez will be replacing ronaldo(his dubbed the next ronaldo) and he will join for around £10–£15 million. this summer man utd will buy one of the followings:
man utd 4eva
I read the rumours on this site everyday as it is better than wasting money on comedy DVD's and tickets to see Stand Up Comedians. Talking about comedians, to the scouser who thinks MON is childish and an idiot, maybe you should of been reading the comments Liverpool supporters have been making on this site over the last six weeks!! I have lost count the amount of times I have read J. Cole, Villa, Barry etc etc signing tomorrow, you all must be having a laugh!!
Let me give you REAL facts:
1. No–One knows where Barry will be playing after 1st Sept, not even the man himself so lets stop living in dream land.
2. Villa are looking to sign up to four players before 1st Sept, a right sided midfielder/winger (SWP on Loan or Milner), another right back, Central Midfielder (expect a bid for Bullard) & a forward (Owen – 6m + Gardener)
3. The Big News – MON wanted Santa Cruz but he now is looking at Owen, the truth is, MON is seriously considering making a bid for Arshavin.
UP THE VILLA!!
Want to clear up a few issues.
– The bid from chelsea for Torres was turned down not by Rafa, Not by Hicks, Not by Parry but by the man himself, Torres.
– Aguero is a Liverpool fan, Same as me, Same as alot of my mates. I would never play for the Scum so imagining all those interview where he speaks glowingly are half true, get of the drugs man u, he wont be goig to you!
Why in the first place did liverpool go with hicks and gillete? they must have known that DIC are about 20 times richer.
voronin 4 million
benyoon 6 million

HEARTS FC/WIGAN FC
Hearts who play in the SPL up in Scotland have been in touch with Wigan about a move for Henri Camara,however the player and Wigan would prefer the deal to be permanent,Hearts would prefer a loan move with first option to purchase. Apparantley Camara is desperate to join and prove how good a player he is after his nightmare spell with Celtic,for some strange reason only known to Romanov (the Hearts owner)he wants him to sign permanently for Kaunas in Lithuania and then loan him straight to Hearts and Camara is unwilling to do this. Negotiations are proving "frustrating" with Hearts and according to the source I've been talking to at Wigan to very "ametuer"
