Ok to the burke that said walcott is worth 8 million, and young 28 million, i think its safe to say you support villa and live in a cave. walcott scored a hattrick bud and villa lost 6–0. just wait till the end of the season when you see walcott send shivers down the spines of defenders and your crisis–hit club fight of relegation, no o'neil no milner what now mate? Click believable if you think walcott is better than ashley young and vice versa. please please post ed.(29)(15)

 23 Aug 2010 22:22:06
Newcastle will try and get Roque Santa Cruz, Jo or Caicedo on loan. It could be any one of those three, since all 3 of them are available to leave on loan. Hughton wants another striker so he will "take his pick". He may go for Caicedo since he is less injury prone, less wages (although Man City will pay some of it) but fits in more with CH's vision of newcastle– hard working players(17)(2)

I can't see ben arfas wages being the stumbling block for him not signing for nufc on loan especially if we are after santa cruz who im guessing will be on something pretty near to the £80k per week some people reckon arfa is supposedly on. whats holding up the ben arfa deal is the fact nufc won't agree to the fee marseille want for him should nufc stay up and have to buy him next season. considering nufc arnt actively chasing any similar player to ben arfa ie an attacking midfielder/ winger suggests they are still confident the deal will go through. houghton wants a player like him as long term the plan is to play haris vuckic in the hole behind carroll when they feel he is ready for the pl.
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
The stumbling block is actually the fee Marseille want. he hasnt even negotiated wages yet, so that is nonsensense. But actually, if we did get Roque, City would pay a good portion of his wages (Like Bellamy at Cardiff) as we can't afford over £35k(21)(18)

 

 23 Aug 2010 19:14:03
The messi rumour is complete tosh, obviously – 14 mil haha! United did enquire about him and Iniesta and was told Messi wasnt for sale.

CELTIC FACTS ,
The club are looking at Itay shechter a forward from israel , hes a flying machine with 2 great left feet hes rated the best forward in his own country. The early indications are this deal to be completed quickly , birmingham were due to bid over 2m in march but were looking at other players as well. With the arrival of kayal this deal will be completed shortly. The arrival of forster will be completed today after a medical. There is still going to be a late bid of around 5–6m for a player from celtic this will be the new number " 7" . journo Who told you first about , juarez and kayal. remember bhoys?(42)(21)

Saints to sign a player before Bristol Rovers game on Saturday.

Likely to be a Central Midfielder or a Striker.

Saints today signed Brazilian Midfielder Guilherme do Prado "Guly" for a 5 month loan deal with an option to make to deal permanent.(26)(6)

Everton fan here. .

Just to let you know, there are strong reports from merseyside tonight, suggesting Jagielka want to leave the club, in favour of a "top four club". I would want a big fee though, he is a top quality center half

 23 Aug 2010 17:36:58
A number of clubs have expressed an interest in signing McCormack, but Leeds are hoping to lure the 24–year–old to Elland Road.

Leeds are understood have agreed a fee with Cardiff for McCormack as they look to bolster their attacking options before the close of the transfer window.

McCormack's agent, Willie McKay, has confirmed Leeds have been given permission to hold talks, but that other clubs are also in the race for the skilful forward's signature.

"We have been given permission to speak to Leeds as well as two other clubs about Ross, " McKay told skysports.com.

"We will be holding talks with those clubs later this week."

So the deal will not be made this week.

Ben Arfa not joining Newcastle due to his stupid wage demands. He wanted £80,000 a week, which Newcastle have correctly not agreed.

With Man City clearing out some fringe players as part of the 25 per squad rule, Hughton is lining up a season–long loan deal for Santa Cruz. Newcastle cannot afford to buy him due to wages, so a loan seems likely.

Cheick Tiote will sign. Everything agreed, medical passed but now just waiting for the work permit.

Leon Best is wanted by Blackpool and Leeds.

Fraser Forster to Celtic, but there isn't a view to buy. We rate him massively.

On a final note, Mick Wadsworth will be given the Hartlepool job and will look to get Ryan Donaldson on loan from Newcastle.(31)(17)

 

 23 Aug 2010 16:30:26
Celtic

New number 7 could be:
Javier Saviola from benfica however may cost too much as he has a good partnership with oscar cardozo.

Guilherme – currently plays for CSKA Moscow. However he is on loan from Dynamo Kiev. Hasnt made impact that kiev wanted since he signed from cruzerio so are likely going to try recuperate their money. Could go through fro £5m, however will most likely be in january. He is a goalscorer.

keane isn't an option as spurs won't sell for less than £8m(14)(42)

Ed any news on the dyer situation at the city ground?
If no additions are going to be made why can't this acqusitions panel just come out and be clean with us!?
I also don't believe any of this crp Billy Davies come out with that he hasnt got a clue whats happening with transfers!
Hes the manager and part of the AP! He knows exactly whats happening! Im sure they just enjoy pissing 25000 loyal reds fans off!
Any silver lining to our ever darkening cloud ed? {Editor's Note. . . you never know, keep the faith.}


Ed, That isn't fair. The way you put that makes us reds fans feel like you know something. If you don't want to tell us then at least say if you do know something that is happening? {editor's note – to be honest, the way your AP has acted is your problem. There is a reason why the best teams are run like a dictatorship, too many cook spoil the broth and all that.}(9)(14)

Seeing as Rangers have now signed Jelavic, Weiss and Beattie, do we still need a seperate page for Rangers rumours, Ed? All the usual rumours about Gattuso, Goodwillie, Hutton, Lovenkrands, Healy etc really are all nonsense (still) and always have been – so there's nothing else to report, as we have no money left to spend! Perhaps the time is right to integrate us back into the general list of rumours? Unless of course Bougherra leaves. .

Also to save time, perhaps you could just print out the usual 'marquee' dream–list for the Celtic page? A list of the usual names should keep them happy – go for Keane, McFadden, Given, Duff etc – they'll never join, but most of the fans bought their season ticket on the basis that a player of that ilk one day would. Fact is nobody has heard of any of the people they actually do sign and no big names want to play under a manager that doesn't even have his basic coaching badges. It's a shame for the fans really, more than anything.

Just a few ideas Ed – Great site, keep up the good work!(18)(29)

Come on here quite alot due to being a liverpool supporter, but quite frankly some of the rumours are ridiculous and un–credible! For example I know the Ashley young to Liverpool are completely un–true, I am friends with Ashleys younger brother Kyle who plays in Arsenals academy. By what I know Ashley is like the rumours say annoyed with Villa in the way they treated Oneill who he highly respects but that does not mean he wants to come to lpool, he is a huge Arsenal supporter and would love a move there to be closer to his family and help his brother progress. Also while having a little banter with him I asked whether he would ever consider playing for Tottenham (the team his dad supports) and he quite bluntly told me to F off so sorry about the spurs rumours but they are also un–true he will stay at villa this season and weather out the storm unless his dream club arsenal come in for him (highly unlikely at the present time).(20)(22)

The Al Kharafi family are convinced they will win the battle to buy out Liverpool FC but not so that signings can be made this window.

If Liverpool are doing relatively well by January, and have the chance for Champions League football, the new owners will put aside 50mil to add 2 or 3 quality players to the squad. And if they do get Champions League football, another 50mil will be made available in the summer

If not, then 80mil will be made available next summer.

Hodgson wants young–ish quality and versatile players. If he has the money he wants Fabio Coentrau (17mil) Javi Martinez (17mil) and Sergio Aguero (40mil) all at the club for next season. He is looking to add strength and pace to the team in particular.(11)(32)

You will have to translate it like me to understand it unless you are fluent in Italian.

Southampton have agreed a fee with Serie A club Cesena for around $1 million euros (£800,000) for 29 year old Brazilian Midfielder Guilherme do Prado. He wasn't involved in Cesena's game on Saturday, because he was at St Mary's for their game against Leyton Orient. He has had a medical and should complete a move next week. (Monday probably)

Would be interesting to use the Believable/ Unbelievable buttons to see whether a football players private life should stay private. For what it's worth, I think press intrusion and kiss and tell slappers are parasites that make money from high profile people. Is it really a matter of public interest? What possible interest do we have in knowing X slept with Y. Boys will be boys and apart from the fact papers make money from it, they wouldn't be interested in publishing a story about you or me. Whatever the questionable morality or relationship issues/ problems that motivate guys to screw around, does anyone have right to publish such stories by claiming public interest? (Reporting a crime is different and is of interest.)

The proposition is: The press has no right to spy on or pay for sex stories that embarrass and compromise anyone.

Believable = you agree they have no right to claim public interest. None of our business.

Unbelievable = you think I'm barking and that yes, the press can do what they like because the public has an interest and a right to know. (Just remember that if it was you. . ??)

Hodgson is pushing to have the futures of Mascherano and Kuyt sorted out within the next 48 hours, allowing him time to spend any money receives without being held ransome at the last minute. He needs the money to buy another striker especially. LFC have registered interest for Toivonen and Ruiz. The potential loan deal for Trazeguet is a fall–back in case the funds do not arrive. LFC are looking for 21m Euros for Masch and would allow Kuyt to leave for the 15m already bid by Inter. They are allowing Kuyt to decide where he wants to be but have given him a deadline. Funds are already in place to buy either Konchesky or Salcido at LB, in which case Insua will be moved out. If Masch stays, LFC will try to do a deal to sell Lucas but they want 6m Euros(23)(20)
