Sebo is lactose intolerant after fainting during a training session because the team chased him with semi skimmed milk and launched it all over him and he took a bad reaction.
Also Neil Lennon to make a supirse return to Scotland, Falkirk believed to be the team.
I was in Milan the other week and I saw sebo with Mancini.
Roland Linz of Boavista to West Bromwich Albion
Paul McShane 2 sign for Sunderland tommorow, and Baines also sometime through the week, do not be surprised to see Alfonso Alves, ellmander and veron come through the door at the Stadium of Light either
Sunderland to Sign
Keane Said Three players I looks like they will be
Baines £6 million
Alfonso Alves £8 million
These are rumours not I know Verons Dogs Uncles Vicar ok
Tevez will be a United player before the transfer deadline has concluded.
I have heard some gossip about Quaresma not actually wanting to move to Lfc but wants a move to FC Barcelona instead. SAfc 2 sign Alves, Baines and a shock signing before deadline. Tevez to Mufc by Thursday.
Hello friends. Speaking to you is the official photographer of Man United.com. I have met every player that has come to Old Trafford within the last eight years. Yesterday I met Carlos Tevez and I added Freddy Adu to my collection. I have secret newz from David Gill that Adu will sign on Wednesday followed by Tevez on Thursday for undisclosed fees. Alan Smith (Everton/Tottenham), Guissipe Rossi (Barnsley), Gabriel Heinze (Juve/Real Madrid/FC Barcelona) and Saha (loan) will leave for sure. Liverpool will not sign Heinze at all as we will not listen to any transfer bussiness with our rivals. It is a road less travelled, last travelled in 1970. Chelsea to finishfourth with Tottenham and Liverpool battling for second and third. The greatest Man United fan ever
Liverpool are waiting for their asia tour to end. when they return from asia RAFA will buy another wave of players. Gabriel Heinze, Georgio Chiellni, Vincent Kompany, Dario Srna are players that RAFA are looking at. So Rafa will try to sort out his defense as for the moment he is happy with the STRIKERS and MIDFIELDERS. no Quaresma or other right wingers until January. Rafa will rotate Penant Benayoun in the RIGHT and Kewell and Babel in the left. also He will try Babel in right and Benayoun in lef. he will also see the progress of SEBASTIAN LETO.
THIS is the decisive seoson for Penant and Kewel, if they do not perform in the next 6– 12 month we might see them sold and replacements bought. also Kuyt and Crouch have to step their quality as Rafa is desperately looking for the perfect partner for TORRES. Rafa has already showed if he is not happy with a player he may sell him after 1 seoson like he has done with Bellamy, morientes, Josemi, Gonzalez
Senderos 2 move 2 Juventas for £3 million or slightly more, so expect a possable bid 4 Wigans Bains by Afc. Or there is a chance that Arsenal might recall Matthew Connolly who's on loan, Song to leave Arsenal could be any where before the transfer door closes.
With Freddie having left along with Titi not only has Arsene secured c £20 million in transfer fees he has also dramatically cut his wage bill by £3/4 million a month. So far the new signings wages are small so this paves the way for a BIG name to arrive.
This will happen and will be a quality wide player, several are being tracked, Quaresma is one. Arsene will also sign a quality central defender, expect a shock.
Watch out and remember where you read it.
As quoted, Kieren Dyer will definitely leave Newcastle so there is no sign of Fanni, RB's off to Renne.
NUfc will not sell any more players as alardayce expects injuries instead he will be buying Julio baptista, Sami Hyypia, nick shorey, micah Richards, Deco and Fabio Cannavaro. Belive me it will happen
It's believed the hotdogs and burgers at the City of Manchester stadium are being replaced by Thai sticky noodles and Red and Green curry dishes. Cannot wait to go their this season. At least the food will be good. : )
West Ham united rumours.
Following super Freddies arrival, Curbs will seek to add APPIAH and GUDJONNSEN to his squad.
Nicky Shorey has signed and will be unvieled later next week.
Should we fail to attract either of the above Curbs fancies ZIGIC and NOLAN,.
Have heard that Roy Keane has gone back to Man United for Rossi.
Newcastle will attempt sign Mancini for £20 million and Sunderland to sign Baines and McShane but I do not know the fees for theese 2
the man in the know
Sunderland will complete the signings of three trialists silvio spann, Jack pelter and Tom whed. alongside the big name signings of Leighton Baines, Craig gordon, Paul McShane and Johan Elmander.
No one will come to Arsenal this the bad truth. Wenger does not want to make big signing becoz he does not want to pay. and as we all know big signing cost us, but I wish to see Quaresma joining us.
Have heared from reliable source's that Shaun Wright–Phillips will sign for the Hammers along with Eider Gudjohnson and Nick Shorey in the next 10 days deals have been agreed.
I have it from Niall himself that four players will sign this week for Sunderland;
Craig Gordon and the most surprising
Juan Sebastian Veron
I have heard from a local north London journalist (who has links with the Arsenal coaching staff) That in light of the quality departures from Arsenal we can expect Arsene 'the brain' Wenger to launch bids for right midfielder Punto Wemiwaye from Racing Santander (£3.2 million) and Scotish international central defender Priestley at around £3– £4.5 million.
Expect to see the Gunners sign a winger in the next few days, and if the takeover completion takes place expect a few world class signings to arrive one of which may be Samuel Eto'o.
fact. Manny Fernandes's car was at bellefield (EFC) training ground today. no sign of player though
Heinze will sign for Liverpool soon and ONE of Quaresma Alves or chielini will come before deadline
LFC for the treble
Arsenal will not be signing any more forwards as Arsene wenger feels he has enough with bentner coming back
however Freddy has gone and wenger needs a new winger. moscow's carvalleo played Arsenal last year and impressed wenger lots so wenger will splash out on him.
Everton to sign Kevin Doyle for £6 million
Everton to sign Daniel Braaten for a nominal fee, Johann Vogel for free, Manuel Fernandes on loan, Leighton Baines for £3 million + James McFadden and Alan Smith or Kevin Doyle for £6 million
Lfc 2 sign quresma Heinze and kompany United not 2 get Tevez they are afraid the deal will b 2 messy n many people do not want him now Arsenal 2 finishsixth there falling apart
Gabby Heinze has spoken out about his on off transfer to European giants Liverpool "I desperately want to move away from Man United, I want to join a big club where I can win things like the Champions League, I want to join Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal"
Ljungberg departed Quaresma agreed.
There is no other way Arsene would let this Freddie transfer of happend.
The fee? £20 million EUROS.
Watching training in Austria has been very interesting. Everyone knows Arsenal lacked a little bit of width last term and the goals from injured forwards (v. Persie and Henry) Well that has now been addressed. Eduardo "goal a game" the Silva has arrived and Quaresma and Eboue given the responsibility of feeding him, good times will be back next season for the best team in North London.
Arsene's eyes in austria
Everything is very uncertain at Arsenal, only a few days ago Wenger was saying ljungberg was staying 90 percent sure and that he would never go to another English club and now he's at the Hammers. it is difficult to trust Wenger, however a few rumours are Stephen Appiah for £7 million and on the wings angel di maria for £1.5 million and some think that luka modric is coming. Wenger has got himself into the situation of selling nearly 5 outfield players and only signing 2, Arsenal will find that a few injuries will instigate a repeat of last season where the squad lacked depth and was weak, however it would be even worse.
Shaun Wright–Philips, discontented with being relegated to fourth choice winger behind Robben, Joe Cole and Malouda, will seek a move unless Robben also moves. Tottenham are not interested, as they already have Lennon, so the Hammers are likely to put in a bid, as Faubert is long term injured.
To the person who said Celtic are signing Robbie Keane for £4 million + jarosic and Gravesen is talking mince becase Keane signed a five year contract just a few months ago
However Rangers will be signing whitaker of Hibernian for £1.8 million and expect Murray to pull one out of the bag at the last minute he always does.
What a ridiculous suggestion that hopefully Tottenham will sign Cameron Jerome. Birmingham have accepted that he is not ready for Premier League and are ready to unload to a championship club, currently most likely are Leicester Watford or Southampton if the saints can resolve boardroom strife before start of the new season.
Sunderland to sign Baines he will be their only good player this season
Chopra waste money
Anderson not gd enuff
Sunderland relegated by xmas
Paul Anderson joined Swansea on loan about 10 days ago.
Steve Coppell has turned his attention to Juan Sebastien Veron after missing out on Nantes midfielder, Emerse Fae.
Juan Seba Veron due for talks with former centre midfield Partner RK over a move to the Stadium Of Lights.
No chance of Heinze going to Liverpool anymore, as much as the player would have liked to join us Ferguson made the deal impossible, Alves deal also unlikely due to the high transfer fee, but do expect an offer for Cannavaro on a year long contract and Vincent Kompany is a real option depending on HSV's valuation. in other departments Kewell and Pennant will both stay and will be joined by Ricardo Quaresma for about £17 million which will complete Rafa's title challenging squad.
Trust in Jackec
Alan Smith 6 mil
Braaten 3 mil
Quaresma will not be coming LFC. yet
chiellini has spoken publicly about a move to Liverpool, but I think Heinze will be the one to move down the road. No Alves
I hear from a reliable sauce that Chris Bennett will complete a £100,000 switch to Swindon after Reading decided to cash in on the suspect centre half.
Some Arsenal rumours: ageing Pavel Nedved will come in to replace influential Freddie Ljunberg, also Argyle youngster Dan Gosling will be heading to North London in a deal that could be worth up to £2 million for the Pilgrims, also Arsenal youth U18 midfielder Ben Ford is heading to Upton Park because of the influx of foreigners in the Arsenal set up.
Liverpool are poised to sign Luis Garcia's cousin Javi Garcia from Real Madrid. The 20 year old is also being chased by Athletico Madrid and Rafa Benitez will be willing to let the defensive midfielder join his cousin at Athletico Madrid for the season if he secures his signature. Benitez is also likely to win the battle against Man United for their left–back, Gabriel Heinze.
FC Barcelona were preparing a £24 million bid for Didier Drogba if they missed out on Thierry Henry. Rijkaard's first choice forward target was always Henry but he had considered Drogba and Huntelaar if he failed to land his long term target.
William Gallas will leave Arsenal next week for Juve. Claudio Ranieri is very keen to sign the defender he brought to Chelsea and Gallas like other players at the Emirates is fed up at Arsenal.
FC Barcelona could challenge Arsenal more in this seasons transfer market by lodging a bid for defender, Kolo Toure.
And Real Madrid have not yet given up hope of signing £18 million, Cesc Fabregas.
Brian laws is trying to sign Paul Gallagher from Blackburn on a permanent deal. If a permanent deal cannot be brokered, he will try to get a six month loan.
Robben Real Madrid £15 million
Tevez Inter £30 million
Lampard Juve/FC Barcelona £17 million
Deco Newcastle £14 million
Adriano Man United. £24 million
David Villa Chelsea 55 million
Drogba Real Madrid £30 million
plus zinedine Zidane comes out of retirement to play in MLS for one season not sure what team
Vincent van den Berg and Kieran Gibbs of Arsenal reserves to help strenghten Leicester's promotion push.
Also, Ben Sahar currently in talks about a season long loan but Plymouth are interested. Allen will finalise all three on return from Scotland
I have it on very good autrhority that Everton are planning a player + money exchange involving LeScott and Alonso.
Cheilini, peperini, saltini, Mancini, all signing for LFC by the end of this week.
Teves will not join the mancs he will go to NUfc instead
I heard from a friend who works for a TOP TOP agent that Liverpool are to get FIGO and SIMAO in a double blockbuster signing. COME ON RAFA
Arsenal will go under the radar as Arsenal buy
Ronaldinho AC MILAN
Quaresma will end up at the pool despite Porto's frantic efforts to keep him. Heinze will also arrive at Liverpool which might cause Rafa to sell Riise, maybe to Lyon.
Tevez to stay at the Hammers
MANCHESTER City boss Sven Goran Eriksson wants to sign Sevilla's Serbian hard–man Ivica DraGutinovic to toughen up his defense.
Left–sided centrehalf or left–back DraGutinovic, 31, is an international teammate of United's Nemanja Vidic and could be following him to Manchester this week if the clubs can agree a fee of around £2 million.
Eriksson also wants Liverpool keeper Scott Carson, Juve left–back Giorgio Chiellini, Atletico Madrid leftwinger Martin Petrov and OlympiAkos forward Nery Castillo.
Man United will complete the signing of Carlos Tevez by Friday. the Hammers will receive 25 percent of the transfer value. 75 percent to MSI. Heinze will remain at Man United. Why would he want to sign for the dirty thieving scousers.
Gilbert from Arsenal has not gone on tour bcoz he is in talks with Newcastle as he is the ideal replace meant for car. They are also looking at bringin Marquez from FC Barcelona as he has fallen out with his manger and Sam has made it clear that he wants some defenders in. As for cover for Barton they might look to loan a youngster in until January or might go for giles Barnes. There is also a young highly rated Chelsea midfelder that Sam is looking at
Wolves to snap up the signing of central defender Joel lynch of brighton in with the next week for around 500,000.
MM has also made a approach to Fulham about taking forward Collins John on loan, but John wants to stay in the Premier League.
Tevez will not join Man United but will not stay either
