Liverpool are going to offload Alberto Aquilani, Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt, Fabio Aurelio, Joe Cole and Brad Jones this summer. Eden Hazard, Keisuke Honda and Welliton are all on Comolli's wishlist however Hazard may prove too difficult should Daglish fail to guide them into a top four finish.(7)(37)when, when dalglish fails to guide them into the top 4Didn't Honda just join Lazio ? {Ed001's Note - no, it fell through.}Hazard & Honda would never join Liverpool - dream on!

Well intentioned Rangers fan has
just posted he has pledged to pay £10
instead of using his season ticket to
help his club out, alas it falls down a
little when he then says 40,000 fans
paying this self same £10 would make
RFC £4MILLION per game.
Methinks, maybe this kind of
arithmetic has got his club in the
smelly stuff it is now in LOL(28)(6) 


 
400,000.......NOW 40,000 X 10 = 400,000. This type of accounting means that you must be a football agent or at least a chairman of some bankrupt clubBrilliantIs this the same bloke that's running pompey??? haI bet it was Evans and the Crawley board working those maths, a bit like their wages, 3,500 fans paying 15 a game = 6 million a week, yeah we can afford the wages we have

 


24 Feb 2012 19:22:03
Jeffrey Schlupp to Charlton following departure of Paul Hayes to Wycombe on season long loan today.(4)(16)Dream on.. He's injured anyway !Just HOW MANY times must you lot be told, HE'S INJURED!!........ out for the rest of the season and beyond!Even if he wasn't injured he would be back in the first team

 


24 Feb 2012 18:59:49
Bristol city have signed boltons sean davis on a months loan
He should be a good addition to our injury ravaged side as long as he can stay fit as he hasn't played for nearly 18 months.(8)(6)Good addition?...GOOD ADDITION??.....he's head and shoulders above the rammel you've got down there!

 


24 Feb 2012 18:15:13
Man. City are interested in bringing Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain to the club this summer.
Only Messi and Ronaldo have scored more goals than Higuain in La Liga this season, so he'd be a great edition to City’s squad.
Word is City could offer Carlos Tevez in exchange for Higuain!(11)(4) 


 
Would be a great signing for city and like wise for real but I guess it will depend on who the real coach is by then as Jose will be gone at the end of this season!Can Madrid afford Carlos's wages?

 


24 Feb 2012 17:53:58
Leyton Orient have signed West Ham goalkeeper Marek Stech on an emergency loan until March 24th.(13)(3)

 


24 Feb 2012 17:09:19
steve Evans upset with outgoing players.Board have stated they had to do something as
gates of 2000/3000 aint good enough to keep club afloat and substain life in the football leauge.
Also there appears to be many complaints going into the FA about steve evans,he will learn
tp keep his mouth shut as leauge managers are so fed up with his touchlin antics.
Board are concerned at this time as it could mean curtains for the club in the FL(14)(4)It's about time the FA showed some balls and sorted Evans out once and for all.

He gets away week in week out on the tochline with what he does and grow some bcks FA and sort this person Evans out

 


24 Feb 2012 17:08:09

Everton will bid for Middlesbrough midfielder Barry Robson in the Summer. And unlike a lot of stuff on this site this is true!(10)(22)That would the same Barry Robson that is on his way to Vancouver then. classic rubbish!Barry in going to MLS i think to Vancover.Lol the same Barry Robson who agreed to join Vancouver Whitecaps at the end of the season?He signed a pre conract with vancover whitecaps in the MLSHe has signed a pre-contract to go to canadaAre you suggesting that people actually
stretch the the truth a little on here you little tinker youI heard that they had a last minute bid knocked back in the transfer window so could be true...Considering he is off to Vancouver you'll have a job!Funny, seeing as he's agreed to move to the Vancouver Whitecaps in Canada.He has signed a deal with a MLS outfitHes already agreed to join a canadian club in summer!No he's gone to mls in summer and already signed pre contractRobson has already sighned for vancouver whitecapsHes going to vancouver.....this is true!Robson does NOT have to Honour the signing of a pre contract just like BECKFORD did not have to sign for Everton after signing his pre contract.Thats good, very true is it, funny how he is going to MLS mate!How can they he has signed a pre contract with Vancouver whitecapsBeckford DIDN'T and COULDN'T sign a pre-contract with everton, you can only sign a pre-contract with a club from another country from the one you are registered in!!! We had a "gentleman's agreement" with beckford, no contract involved. Robson however could well have signed one! it amazes me the little that people actually know about our game!

 


24 Feb 2012 15:08:41
Leyton Orient are set to sign Norwich keeper Jed Steer on loan untill the end of the season following Lee Butcher's injury.(3)(22)No Chance he is back up for Ruddy at Norwich because Rudd is still out injured.Even thought they signed marek stech from west ham, do they need 2 extra keepers?

New Leeds manager Neil Warnock is looking to strengthen in central midfield as well as central defence, with Delph out for the season. Former skipper Shaun Derry, Blade Nick Montgomery and Cheltenham's Marlon Pack are thought to be targets. Defensively, Warnock is already looking at taking Clint Hill at the end of the current season, when Aidan White is expected to leave.

24 Feb 2012 10:28:57
have read in local rag that poopey squad have 'deferred' a percentage of their wage for the remainder of the season....not given up, or decreased but 'deferred'.means that their 'deferred' wages are week by week added to the overall debt of the clubhow magnanimous of them and typical of today's footballers.tick tock..(17)(1)Took a pay cut and you still moan support ur team and ull pull through it good luck a Leeds fanAgree with the Leeds fan, either support them or go and boil your head somewhere

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/feb/24/terry-connor-appointed-wolves-manager

connor till end of season - cant wait
to play Brighton and Reading.

what a Joke(8)(13)Hayward bottled it now it seems Morgans bottled itWelcome to the Championship Wolves! haCould end up swapping places with ReadingWolves will reap exactly what they have sown; McCarthy took them up and kept them up all those on here screaming for his removal will maybe reflect on their actions now – well maybe in May.

I wonder if this sleeping giant will drop into league 1 in the next few years, the premier league setup will certainly have to go and the wage bill reduced. All those stars sold off on the cheap to keep the club going etc etc….. We’ve seen it all before, I said on this very site be careful what you wish for Wolves fans.You would lose to bothHope we loose every game we play fat face moxey out.Serves you right mick did a great job
going downYou won't be playing Reading, we will take your position in the prem ;DWe would not have won another league under mick, team selection and tactics getting stranger by the minute. You tell me what manager could escape after loosing at home to albion, blues and villa (in the space of a month), your 3 nearest and dearest.
As for falling through the leagues and having to sell players on the cheap. What aload of bull, last i heard we were the only premier team with no debt. This means guys even if we do go down no need to sell on the cheap. We will sell who we want and who we contractually have to and thats it. This will also mean been in a strong position to hopefully bounce back.
Come on tc.

 


24 Feb 2012 10:17:31
That would be George McCartney the left bact? Millwall only have 4 left backs! Don't see that one happening(2)(9)

23 Feb 2012 23:42:46
Bolton's Paul Robinson is going back to the club where he started his career, Watford.

Paul Robinson plays for Millwall mate. Fail!

There are more then 1 Paul Robinson in football, the one at Millwall is a striker and the Bolton, ex-Watford one if a left back.
Fail yourself!(18)(11)The one at Millwall is a defender....We want the one from Bolton back i.e. the legendary Paul Robinson. We don't want any phonies, though we'll take Kenny back.We'll take Kenny back but not as a manager thanks.

 


24 Feb 2012 07:31:55
Different Paul Robinson mate, Fail!(6)(7)Is that the one from neighbours?

 


24 Feb 2012 07:31:33
Aston Villa to be taken over by Q.I.A (Qatar) in the Summer for around the £150million mark, A local MP has announced that a major Investment in Birmingham will be brought for £150million in the summer.(13)(24)Sounds good - villa deserve better than mcleish.Its Qatar petroleum who WERE interested in Villa, QIA want to buy the airport

 


24 Feb 2012 07:01:40
The Swindon Advertiser (Fri 24 Feb 12) understands thats:

FORMER Norwich captain Mark Fotheringham is believed to have held talks with Swindon yesterday over a potential move, the Advertiser understands.

Paolo Di Canio is keen to further strengthen his side for the end-of-season run-in and, with star midfielder Simon Ferry having struggled with a bout of flu recently, the Town boss is keen to bolster that position.(16)(6)

 


24 Feb 2012 06:40:52
Chelsea looking to make a bid for Theo Walcott whilst giving Arsenal, Daniel Sturridge.(14)(33)Why would Chelsea want Walcott Sturridge is a far superior player and how the hell walcott gets in the England squad is beyond me.

 


24 Feb 2012 06:39:29
Reading are going to try and make a bid for ex-Reading Player of the season, Gylfi Sigurdsson at the end of the season(6)(16)He is a swansea player true and thrueWhy would he joinn a championship team, sure if readin get promoted he may consider it, but he's been watched by top european teams ever since he left Reading, i'd have money on joining a team playing in the Champions league next year, not ReadingCan see us trying IF we get promoted, as much as i'd love him to come back he deserves a top 10 club at leastIf we go up he will jump ship

Bolton's Paul Robinson is going back to the club where he started his career, Watford.(11)(16)Paul Robinson plays for Millwall mate. Fail!The OP is referring to BOLTONS PAUL ROBINSON....... NOT the one at blackburn nor the one at millwallthere's more than one paul robinson, the bolton left back who came through watford's academy is the one being talked about, learn your football players mate.Theres more than one paul robinson, nd why would anyone want the millwall one?!

Liverpool have scouts watching Dicko Koppers of Ajax tonight at Old Trafford.(16)(8)

 


23 Feb 2012 18:32:58
chattered to a report, who believe these are the players leaving the club and clubs must likely going to:

CRAIG GORDON is of to Celtic for Free

GEORGE McCARTNEY wants to stay in London and has been linked with Charlton, Millwall and WHU.

TITUS BRAMBLE is off to Ipswich

ASAMOAH GYAN is staying with Al-Ain, but Italian and French clubs are watching with interest in the hope the deal will fall.

AHMED ELMOHAMODY is off to Al-Ahly not in MON's plans.

MARCOS ANGELERI will be going back to Estudiantes.

CRISTIAN RIVEROS has a list a mile long of clubs who are interested in him: Boca Juniors, All Boys, Indendiente, Argentina Juniors, 6 other south American clubs, Kayserispor, Zaragoza, Mallorca, Bari, Palermo and Sampdoria.

MON is hoping to get 2 new strikers, left back, Left Wing and a play maker, Looking at all options for the Lads.

Think it will be interesting to see what happens and I hope these plays do go.

Bad news Stephane Sessegnon is attracting a lot of interest from Premiership clubs and French Clubs.

Reporter said it looks like he is a goner.(15)(14)Aw well Sunderland will still spend big money on average players. While we do it right, by getting top players for next to nothing apart from the odd 1No way will Sunderland write off the 9M they paid fro Craig Gordon. Also he will only ever play for one Scottish club, Hearts and whilst injured he's been back to the club a lot as he's also a fan.Impressively inaccurate.Gordons contract runs out at the end of the season. Sunderland want his wage packet off. He is one of the highest paid goalkeepers in the world of football.Bramble no thanksGordon one of the highest paid players in world football, Haha, I seriously doubt thatgoalkeepers

 


23 Feb 2012 16:53:07
Andy Hessenthaler being lined up as Wolves next manager.(11)(37)Why would we appoint a failed LEAGUE TWO manager.Why would you sack a man that took you up and kept you there? Good sense and prudence left Molinuex a long time ago.

 


23 Feb 2012 15:48:22
Rumour stating that Rupert Lowe is
interested in taking over at poor old
Portsmouth,hope it's true because oh
how you deserve each other.(12)(13)And there was me thinking this rubbish rumour had already been reported on this site. Glad to see you have your finger on the pulse! well done you!Don,t think even Rupert Bear would be interested in Pompey could try hr and mmMy god a match made from heavenThink this ones got more of a pulse than Pompey have at the moment.

 


23 Feb 2012 15:06:21
Lee Clark for the Molineux vacancy?(10)(28)Wolves will have to lower their expectations. Lee Clark wont want to go there as fourth choice. Walter Smith, Alan Curbishley & Brian McDermot have all turned them down.So let me get this right, a man who has been sacked after not getting his club promoted out of league 1, would turn down the opportunity to manage a larger club in the prem. He would take it in a heart beat if he was 100th choice.Wolves are a laughing stock right now, they will have to take what they can. No credible manager will touch them. They will have to look within and promote, or get an ex-pro in. I head Andy Gray might be interested. {Ed001's Note - Gray's only interest is money, Wolves won't pay him enough.}I think the fact that Huddersfield fans were largely delighted at his leaving the club says everything... He would be perfect for WoLOLves.Neil Warnock also spoke to Wolves but opted for Leeds. Warnock also spoke to Hudds.Lee clark ? God they really are scraping the bottom of the barrel now

Wo1ve5

 


23 Feb 2012 15:05:08
Rupert Lowe interested in taking over Portsmouth?(14)(15)...the Portsmouth board may be stupid, but they ain't that stupid!! lolThey are THAT stupid. They'd probably sell to Rupert Bear.

 


23 Feb 2012 14:18:04
HOT NEWS. Time to get your wallets out fellas. I have heard from a very reliable source that the next Wolves manager on a short term deal will be DAVE JONES. Dont just sit there! GET A TENNER ON IT NOW! This is fact. I just placed £500 at 15/1. GET IN!(20)(33)Don't be silly. In a market like that you will not be able to punt more than a score especially at those odds.
However your choice would be seem to be feasible.Wish u'd of had that bet with me pal, i'd of give you 16's! then put your 500 on at 20's which is on offer generallyMissed taking them pills again500 not well spent... Terry Connor has just been named Wolves manager until the end of the SeasonGet the drinks in,your round mate!!HaHa ... Unlucky!I really hope this is a lie, because former LUFC player, and Mick's assistant, Terry Connor has been given the job until the end of the season!Unlucky

 


23 Feb 2012 13:19:16
erik huseklepp signed to birmingham on loan of 3 months
in order to sign permanent(21)(5)Ino this is mad

 


23 Feb 2012 12:55:24
I can confirm from a reliable source at Reading that that Pompey have approached the club to loan midfielder Jay Tabb and striker Mathieu Manset.

Portsmouth were told in no uncertain terms to look elsewhere by Sir John Madejski. Manset has instead gone to China on loan for £600,000, and Tabb remains in Brian McDermott's plans. Other clubs are believed to be taking the same stance against Portsmouth.(13)(12)Manset has either got on loan or has been sold for 600,000. NOT BOTH!Any club doing deals with Portsmouth right now, would be crazy.Portsmouth told by FA that they can only bring in new players if they go down to 14 fit players!The loan fee is 600,000. Same wealthy club that took Anelka and wanted Drogba. Very odd move but Reading are obviously rubbing their hands together over this and want the player off the books due to his weight problems and off field problems (drink driving, unprofessional attitude)Clubs in administration cant get
anyone on loan or are pompey getting
special treatmentWhy would anyone in there right mind want to join them when they wont get paid any wages"Manset has either got on loan or has been sold for 600,000. NOT BOTH!"

ITS A LOAN FEE, superb bit of business by hammond yet again.

 


23 Feb 2012 12:53:10
Any bristol city rumours(3)(13)No not that i know of, but anyway im coming down to your place this weekend. Atmosphere should be great, looking forward to it. Blackpool FanFrom a bristol city season ticket holder- theres more atmosphere in a desert mateI was thinking you will be loud tomorrow cause ive seen on your website about your manager saying ''lets have the noisiest performance of the season'' and everyone trying to get the atmosphere up and heavy, were expected to bring about a 1,000 of us or just over that mark i reckon. Well anyway im looking forward to the game anyway.Dont misjudge bristol city mate because look at passed results we loose,then we bounce back look at southampton look at bristol rover we lost at home 0.2 then beat them on there own turf 2.4 judge city next season

 


23 Feb 2012 12:16:28
very big rumour that Hessenthaler will be leave Gillingham fc before the end of this season(17)(2)Might be offered the Wolves job!

 


23 Feb 2012 11:54:44
Trotta to Watford on month's loan from Fulham - done deal(13)(3)Don't think so he's off to Millwall mate.Signed for Watford today buddy. Better luck next time.Signing for Millwall, just wait and see.it's been confirmed and he is training with watford right now, jol has even said it could be for more than a month.Millwall......wrong again..............

 


23 Feb 2012 11:26:04
Walter Smith has been offered the Wolves job til the end of the season. He knows Moxey from his time working at Rangers. Source Express & Star newspaper(10)(10)I call shambLOLes.Said no thank god for thatHas knocked them backWalter Smith will fail. He failed at Everton.

In Scotland they talk about guys like him being "legends" for winning 3 or 4 titles in a row.

Any half decent manager that came to either Rangers or Celtic and got money to spend will come first or second and qualify for Europe. They go into Europe and usually fall at the first hurdle.

The true "legends" prove themselves in the EPL or Europe and only one springs to mind SAF.You would be lucky to get smith,i am a evertonian and he did a good job for us,considering he had vto sell all his best assets,get real small time club with no ambition,you should have stuck with mick.I agree with the Evertonian Thick Mick would have scrapped you through. Instead it’ll be straight through the Championship and into league one..........watch this space.

 


23 Feb 2012 11:17:18
Trotta is a done deal, 1 month loan..lets hope he's not a Del Boy!(10)(2)Come on Millwall! Great signing.Slow down mate Rodders is coming as well
LOVELY JUBBLYMillwall? He's gone to Watford you doughnutHe's signed for Millwall...You really need to check sky sports mateYou believe Sky Sports? Trust me he might be a Watford player now but this time next week he'll be a Millwall player.You got it wrong. he has joined Watford you dounut

 


23 Feb 2012 09:44:00
latest Steve Evans leaving club has been aggreed would be best for the club if he steps down.What's gone on???
We know he is all wind and p/sss but credit he has steered the club to a good spot in the division.
Makes you think Leee Clark sacked at Huddersfield now this rumour about Steve Evans.Wonder where this came from(10)(6)Evans is not good for any football club, he is a PR1CK of the highest order, it would be the best thing that could happen to little Creepy CrawleyAgree with the baove comment why would Lee Clark go to a tin pot club like crawley with poor crowds -naff stadium and i believe some dodgy owners. Crawley will always be a club that has to sell the players as they dont get the crowds. I think Crawley are going to start slipping down the league now and what decent team would want that scum bag manager evans in charge. The guy is totally unprofessional and is the most hated manager in L1 & L2Evans is hated in football full stop. Leaves a bad taste. Crawley as a team play some good stuff but will always be a small club. Get a new manager before its to late....If the big mouth Evans is leaving creepy Crawley then thats the best thing he's done for football. Even Crawley's FA cup runs are over shadow by Evans big mouth

 


23 Feb 2012 09:27:45
Wolves to appoint ex rangers boss Walter smith by tomorrow(5)(20)Oh no they aintNope - he turned it down.

GEGIn ya dreams pal

 


23 Feb 2012 01:55:41
Wolves set to contact Molde FK over the availability of their current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, over the vacancy at Molineux.
The hierarchy at Wolves has become growing impatient over the suitability and enthusiasm for those who have been in contact.
With experience coaching Man Utd reserves and leading Molde FK to win the Norwegian Premier League in his first year as their manager, their is a growing sentiment that OLS could bring a rejuvenation to the Wolves squad and bring about safety.
With it being preseason in norway compensation and transfer would be easier than that of a current football league manager.(8)(20)If Alan Curbishley turned you down - really?
any sources?
"They lack ambition" face it championship team & MM was the best manager you will ever have.Oh no not another name in the circus ring - I mean come on the names doing the rounds are what - genuine, smokescreens, red herrings - but I admit my beloved Wolves have brought a whole new meaning in how to select & conjole a manager into this once very great club! Ok who is the owner here. Morgan you wanted Curbishley well bloody well go out & get him - & both share the same vision - a successful Wolves team in the Premier LeagueSorry did you just say that wolves were a "great club"? i thought my eyes were failing meWolves will reap exactly what they have sown; McCarthy took them up and kept them up all those on here screaming for his removal will maybe reflect on their actions now – well maybe in May.

I wonder if this sleeping giant will drop into league 1 in the next few years, the premier league setup will certainly have to go and the wage bill reduced. All those stars sold off on the cheap to keep the club going etc etc….. We’ve seen it all before, I said on this very site be careful what you wish for Wolves fans

 


23 Feb 2012 00:28:39
I may be about to fan the flames here but this is something that is deeply unjust - Ravel Morrison tweet homophobic slurs, but gets a £7k fine, not 8 games and £60k - what, have the FA read the equalities act 2010, there are 9 protected characteristics. Each no more or less valid than another, that's probably why it gets called the 'Equalities Act' why can the Football Association NOT use an even rule book? Is it any wonder there are no openley gay pro players, poor poor form - shame on the FA, OK to support so many disability charities tho... Keep up the sheet work FA hypocrites. {Ed003's Note - Great post}(31)(9)Yes your right both cases r just as bad !! I agree whit you fully , but the fa stand on this is that the Twitter comments are off field comments in this case they r not able to issue a bad as it was not during a game they can only ask the club to personally bad or fine this player a joke I know but a fa ruleCouldn't agree more. I was incensed to hear that Morrison was only fined 7k, should have been 70 k plus a at least a five game ban. The FA are spineless and have no knowledge of the real world.Morrison get's paid 1k pw and has never played a first team game.

Suarez get 160k pw and is on TV every week.

7 Weeks wages for Ravel, 3 days wages for Luis. {Ed001's Note - why has Ravel never played a first team game? Because he can't keep out of trouble with the law! So it is only his own fault that he is not getting paid ridiculous wages, though you are an idiot if you think Suarez gets anywhere near that much at Liverpool. Gerrard is the highest paid player in the club, he gets less than that, Suarez is on about half of that ludicrous made up nonsense of a figure you have posted.
Anyway, you have completely missed the point, people are complaining because he never got banned, not because of the fine!}Great post, just shows the usual double standards from the FAThe post makes a valid point, but it has always been the same, Ferdinand received a 9 month ban for missing a drugs test and the young lad from City got a 2.5k fine! There is no consistency and thats what drives you mad!

Bazza {Ed001's Note - many other bans are not even made public and listed as injuries when they are for failed drugs tests as well. The FA is corrupt and unreliable.}Well said!Great post and i'm supprised this hasn't been jumped on by Gay Rights campaingers and the media. The FA really are useless.Thanks Ed001 - appreciate your comments I wasn't aware that there were many other bans 'disguised' within spells on the treatment bench, but I shouldn't be suprised at all. Thanks for the comments on my original post last night, chose not to put this on the LFC page as I wanted an open view from a wide base of fans, pity that the FA won't take any notice, take care all,

Suffolkn'Red {Ed001's Note - it is common practice to rule the player out for an injury if they go into rehab. It is a disgrace. I understand that they are in need of help etc but the only reason it is done is to keep it quiet. Perhaps if it was public, others that need help would realise that help was available and others that were thinking about using drugs etc would realise that they might actually get caught after all.}

 


22 Feb 2012 23:12:29
Portsmouth have been told that they will not be able to bring any more players in unless a current player is released.(23)(4)Get Pearce off down to Ipswich a bit quick, he'll be well looked afterUnless all your keepers are injured then you should not be thinking of bringing any more players in. You have been punching above your weight for to long now. On 14000 crowds how can you pay players in excess of 20000 per week. Leeds dont pay the wages that you do and their crowds are double yours!Good!! It's a disgrace that just after entering Administration last time, they went and broke the bank to bring in experienced Premier League players on wages they knew they couldn't afford.

It's an absolute disgrace.

I feel for the fans, yes, but the club disgusts me.

Two break the terms of the CVA, and to be back in Admin twice in as many years really should be enough to wind the club up! Sad as it might be to do it, but a new club could be born and in several years you'd be back in the FL and could look for investment and finally a new 25000 all seater stadium.Bye bye Pompey.This is old news. Pompey were told this before the January transfer window opened. We've just offloaded Huseklepp to Brum & brought in Scott Allen from WBA. Next to go, rumoured, is Ben Haim to Celtic. PUP.People dont understand!!....we did have the money with our owners but they turned out to be crooks and that is the fl faultI suppose its the f a fault you are paying 30 000 or more a week to poor players deserve what you get hope nobody buys yer bye bye good ridThe one thing that I couldn't understand when Voldemort was banging on the other day about only being able to field nine fit players was "ok, what about the reserves/kids?"

Then some enlightened soul informed me that if a player from reserve set up plays in a few games they are regarded as part of the squad.

Well that should be a problem should it? Theses guys would be on next to no money, so what is the problem?

The only reason for not playing them is that this would enlarge the squad, which would then mean that the league would be less prepared to allow Pompey to bring in MORE players on loan!

What on earth are they thinking. I hate to see any club in this situation - even Portsmouth - but I'm sorry; if this is the attitude of the club, then they deserve what they get. Ben-Haim is reportedly on 36,000 a week!

I hate to say it but the money men involved deserve to loose every penny-have the club liquidated, and let it be re-born as an unblemished club, run by people who would have the best interests at heart. Lets face it, Pompey have no assets, so they wouldn't be loosing much. It's about time one of these fat-Cat clubs that spend millions chasing the dream only to loose it all, goes out of business - if only as a warning to the others. Its only a matter of time.

Nigel pearson is set to become the new wolves manager and leicester will replace him with oldham athletic manager paul dickov! Fact ..oldham will then appoint lee clark as their new manager(6)(64)Or we could get lee clark and you can keep dickov :)...or better yet we could get a proper manager

Wolves apparently want Nigel Pearson(7)(40)Wolves, Wycombe or Wimbledon. If the pay is better pearson will be off like a shot!The man is a journeyman who relies on his backroom staff. No loyalty to any club, Wolves are welcome to himHmmm cant see that happeningIf Pearson goes to Wolves, Leicester could do worse by bringing in Mick McCarthy as his replacement. At least he shows some loyalty. Judas will go anywhere if the money is rightU lot aint got a clue..Pearson never wanted 2 leave Leicester in the 1st place...the old board got rid of him..god knows why...u can hardly call him judas 4 returning to a club that he didnt want to leaveWishful thinking pal,they've also wanted countless other mangers all of who have said noPearson is a judas! no loyalty to any club. Relies on his backroom staff then likes to take all the credit. Odious man with no class whatsoever who will move on as soon as the going gets tough or the fans start to voice their opinionI want Liz Hurley - but thats a dream as well !Liz Hurley is a ruubbish football manager, nice tits though!

Manager Summer Moves

Villas-Boas - Sacked
Mourinho Real Madrid - Chelsea
Wenger - Arsenal - Real Madrid
Guardiola - Barcalona - Arsenal
Redknapp - Tottenham - England
Poyet - Brighton - Tottenham

David Moyes will be Sir Alex Fergusons
sucessor with Alan Curbishly going to
everton(16)(45)Good except the Moyes bit

Who will be the manager of Barca?I want some of what your on! wenger to real thats made me laugh

had to be written by a goonerMourinho wont go back to Chelsea
Wenger wouldnt get Real Madrid job
Guardiola to Arsenal, Why?
Redknapp well that is fair
Poyet not good enough
Moyes I think Man utd would want a Mourinho Guardiola or someone like that
Curbishly Everton can get better than thatMoyes would do a good job at MUFC and everyone knows it.
Wenger has been a great manager but time to put his feet up.
REdknapp has only had 2 good years in management with spurs and a FA cup with a club he helped kill.
Guardipola to Ars - not gonna happen.
Everton would not need curbishley - EVERAVB out Mourinho loves Chelsea still and always talks about them in press confrences. Could come back if he sorts out realtionship with Abramovich. Guardiola has complemented the way in which arsenal play, and is the closet team to Barcelonas passing ability. I can see this happening!I say youll be lucky to get one of those right
