Sky sports say Arsenal are down to just 2 central defenders now.
Could Bougherra be on his way to Arsenal ?. Just a thought, lets face it he's going somewhere.
Trust in uncle Walt to buy another top prospect and turn him into a very good centre back though.

Arsenal Rumours:
Goal Keepers first : i think wenger was first looking for a short term solution between the posts and sign a long term in Jan or next summer but for me now hes not gonna go for Schwarzer. Arsenal are going to buy Igor Akinfeev for 10m pounds and if CSKA don't accept the fee then Sketlenburg will be given preference. If both transfers don't come thro then wenger will be forced for the Schwarzer avenue as a short term solution. Almunia will certainly and shouldnt be the first choice keeper and Fabianski will be loaned out i guess.
Mertesacker coming to the emirates but wenger prefers jagielka. As everrton are not prepared to sell their star players he will have to go for Mertesacker for about 1014m pounds Laurent Koscielny will not be a first choice centre back for sure. It looks like Sol Campbell is off to Newcastle. Also as Gallas and Silvestre are leaving for sure he will sign another defender possibly Van Der Weil but more likely candidate is Vermealen's old friend from Ajax Jan Voughton(Spelling) either one should cost about 58m pounds.
As for the midfield no new signings Wilshere and Walcott will be given more chances as Jay Emmanuel Thomas will also get a chance in one or two matches. After signing Chamakh wenger feels he has enough options on the bench for the midfield and the attack to win the title. So no new names for strikers.

The Team:
Igor
Sagna Mertesacker Vermealen Clichy
Song Fabregas Arshavin Nasri
Chamakh VanPersie

Subs:
VitoLaurentKoscielnyGibbs/VanDerWeil/JanVoughtonDiabyWalcottWilshereBendtner

Liverbird 1892 your post @ 22:07 is almost believable until this "and the contract terms have been accepted by Insua, the stumbling block is his wage demands." Surely the wages are part of the contract? Or am I missing the point, if he is not happy with the wages (which in my book is a big part of any employment comtract) then why accept them!(8)(3)

To the poster of the below rubbish "27 Jul 2010 18:23:45
To the guy who said robinho to celtic u r having a laugh mate use have spent 10 million already on who exactly no one even knows who these players are for starters he is ginger so no more to say and use r trying to sign the guy that got a 4 match ban for spitting on hartson in 2004 or suhin like that am sure he will fit right in with celtic as he just remembers me of celtic haha rangers to sign obertan on loan 2 africans 1 centre back and 1 striker and also janko from red bull salzburg 3 in a row easy"

First of all learn to punctuate,
Are you insinuating that Robinho is ginger? lol.
Forget Obertan, Rangers couldn't afford his wages.
Finally..Janko signed for FC Twente from FC Salzburg in a deal reported to be worth up to 7m, on the 21st June.
At least check your facts before posting utter garbage mate(6)(27)

If Manchester City don't stump up the £30,000,000 required to sign James Milner he WILL STAY at Villa as MON has come out and said the only club he will be going to if sold is Manchester City.

Im sorry to say but Liverpool fans are making to much of this him wanting to go to Liverpool, his mate asked him if he would play for United and he said he rather play for Liverpool to spite United as him being a Leeds fan would hate playing for them.

Editor do you think MON will stick to his guns and think that the Liverpool fans are making something out of nothing ??

AVFC Con {editor's note – MON will definitely stick to his guns, and there is no way Milner is going to Liverpool in my opinion.}(20)(4)

{editor's note Ireland would love to move to United and Fergie would love to have him. The only thing that will stop this long term is City not wanting to sell to United. But I can't see it happening this summer, unless City get desperate to shift some players.}

Response:
City already have +25 players, with new regulations, apparently stephen is demanding a man u deal, and rumour from family and friends is that he is preparing to be a man u player next year.. Have the mancs tapped him up?? Perhaps he'll be stuck in reserves for been stubborn after that I don't know. That's ed (7)(3)

Why does any of my posts not get posted up!
iv heard two RUMOURS, arteta is off too united, 8m+bervatov, i also heard that everton are after the german striker podoliski (sorry for the spelling)like i said its what iv heard,

paul A FEW POINTS HERE, BERBATOV WOULD SELL FOR 15M, ARTETA WOULD SELL FOR A SIMILAR PRICE BUT ONLY BECAUSE MOYES WOULD GRIND THAT PRICE OUT, HIS TRUE VALUE WOULD BE AROUND 12M, ALSO WHY WOULD BERBATOV AGREE GO TO EVERTON AND EVERTON COULD NOT AFFORD HIS WAGES!

IF UNITED WERE TO BREAK THE BANK FOR AN EVERTON PLAYER IT WOULD BE FOR JACK RODWELL OR POSSIBLY FELLAINI? ARTETA IS TOO OLD, TOO INJURY PRONE AND IS AN UNCAPPED INTERNATIONAL PLAYER, MAYBE THIS IS WHY SEVILLA ONLY VALUED HIM AT 9M!(1)(3)

 

 27 Jul 2010 22:29:28
To the lad who said this

The Tevez to Liverpool rumour (which I posted earlier today and approx 10 days ago) is gathering pace and quite rightly so, as it WILL happen Apparently, a clause in his contract means he can leave for £20m, which would be an absolute bargin.YWhy would city sell last years best player for cheaper than they bought him for the year before.


Normally the clause in the contract is higher than what the player was bought for.

If anything tevez will leave for about £3032 million as he was bought for £25.5million and had an excellent year.
Your obviously a liverpool fan

@27 Jul 2010 20:24:11 "LFC news: I have been informed that Rafa tied up 2 deals before his departure thinking that he would still be LFC's manager in 2010/11. Purslow knew that Rafa was going to get the sack at the time and wanted Rafa to use his clout to finalise these deals. This is the main reason for Purslow/Rafa fallout. The 2 players are Aguero and Mata. Forlan and Turan are smokescreens."

I have no evidence to support that above story whatsoever. However given what I know of the duplicity, malicious backstabbing, lies, false promises and general Machiavallian behaviour that was going on over the last 15 months in the upper echelons of Anfield, it's bloody hard to not believe it.

Ozil to spurs £25 million
Soure sky sports news

dream on
theres only two clubs that he will come to in the epl man united + arsenal
wit a move to united most likely
what do you think (ED) {editor's note – I would agree but for a few little reasons: 1. he would be guaranteed starts at Spurs. 2. Klinsmann, he is a hero in Germany and the lure of following him is a big thing. 3. he is well within Spurs budget.}(12)(6)

Liverpool News from LiverBird 1892

Regular readers of this website will know that I have posted plenty of facts (as Rafa would say!) over the past few weeks regarding players at Liverpool coming in and out. I said all along that Gerrard would stay, Mascherano would leave, and I have been 100% confident that Torres would stay and I have been right with all these. I also posted about Joe Cole signing a 4 year contract on £90,000 a week 2 weeks before any news of this broke. Now, this all proves that my source's links to the club are genuine and highly accurate. This is the latest news coming out of Liverpool.

Emiliano Insua is pricing himself out of a move to Fiorentina due to his wage demands. He is requesting the same amount (figure unknown) he is paid at Liverpool currently and Fiorentina will not offer close to that figure. At the moment, a transfer is now rated 50/50. The fee (£5million) has been agreed between the clubs, and the contract terms have been accepted by Insua, the stumbling block is his wage demands. If Insua cannot agree his wages, he will stay as second choice left back and Hodgson will turn his attention to Carlos Salcido as he is a cheaper option than Maynor Figueroa. I did post on here yesterday that a deal for Figueroa is in place and that still is the case, his medical (scheduled for either Friday or Saturday) has been put on hold until the Insua situation is clarified.

Javier Mascherano has now confirmed he wants to leave the club but Liverpool will not sell unless they receive a substantial offer of at least £25million. Liverpool would prefer a straight cash deal rather than a player + cash deal as they want as much money as possible to sign players to strengthen the squad. Inter Milan are definitely interested and will use the amount they will receive for Mario Ballotelli from Man City to sign Mascherano. Hodgson would prefer to use that amount to sign 2/3 top quality players. I wouldn't expect him to use the full amount to sign James Milner though as some people have been writing on here. James Milner would join Liverpool given the opportunity but I think Liverpool, if they wanted him, would be outbid by Man City and undoubtedly lose out to him due to the money they can offer.

Christian Purslow took a holiday in Madrid for 2 reasons, one so he would be able to easily meet Torres who is staying with his family in Madrid and two because he is secretly trying to tie up a transfer for Liverpool with either Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid. This transfer was set up by Rafa Benitez before he left the club last month but the name of the player has been kept under wraps. Liverpool have strong ties between both clubs due to the transfers of Xabi Alonso, Alvaro Arbeloa, Luis Garcia, Maxi Rodriguez and Fernando Torres between the clubs. Now, my contact is unsure of the potential transfer's name, but Royston Drenthe and Rafael Van der Vaart of Real Madrid have been linked. He has been told though that Purslow was discussing a possible move for Sergio Aguero or Diego Forlan IF Torres was to leave. Now they know for sure this is not happening, its unknown who could join.

I have also been told, just like someone else on here posted, that during this transfer window, Liverpool will sign a player from Man City. Wayne Bridge is no longer a target so I have been told it potentially could be Shaun WrightPhillips, Pablo Zabaleta, Stephen Ireland, Michael Johnson or Roque Santa Cruz. The Tevez links are again a load of rubbish.

I wouldn't expect another striker to sign as Hodgson wants to use Dirk Kuyt and Ryan Babel as strikers and Milan Jovanovic can also play up front but with new found cash from Mascherano's transfer, you cannot rule anything out. Loic Remy is now out of the window.

Maxi has not been told to find another club, Hodgson has told him that he will not be guaranteed a first team place and he understands if he wants to seek a move elsewhere. If he leaves, a right winger will definitely arrive, again it could be WrightPhillips or Arda Turan.

Thats all for now.

Any chance of liverpool signing barry or milner?(1)(7)

 

 27 Jul 2010 22:08:56
Hey great site.Love it.Posted couple of times an i made the page once hope to do the same today!

Anyways hear are some rumours in MY opinion will go through!

DjembaDjemba to WB
United will buy a midfielder.(Ninis, Defour, Small Chance Of Ozil)
Ibrahimovic going nowhere barcelona payed far too much to let him go after 1 year he'll get a chance to settle though won't feature as a 1st team regular

Milner and Balotelli Good as gone.
Ashley Young Will Stay.
Ramires to chelsea along with Lukaka(spellings bad)
Arsenal to bring in a young midfielder and a keeper No big name signings for them

These are the rumours ive heard from various sources and i think have a chance of being completed.

Any Opinion Ed??

 27 Jul 2010 22:10:16
Eto'o to Liverpool in what will be a straight swap for Mascharano He has won everything in both Spain and Italy, and wants to try his hand at the Premiership.



Benitez wouldn't be very popular if the first thing he did at a new club was get rid of their best striker!

Would be the equivalent of him selling Owen as soon as he joined Liverpool..

No, in all seriousness, I very much doubt Eto'o would be allowed to leave even if he wanted to.(6)(12)

 

 27 Jul 2010 21:43:00
To the person who put this:

'Just been informed that Sergio Aguero has been signed by LFC and will be announced on Friday. £23M is the figure being mentioned (rising to £26M). Benitez was in Madrid on behalf of LFC (before his departure) and began negotiations for Kun back then. Purslow was recently in Madrid for this deal. The deal got delayed because Mascherano sale money was supposed to have been used for Aguero. Due to no Masch sale, Purslow had to make an arrangement for funds to acquire Aguero and then head out to Madrid to complete the deal. Torres was in two minds as he thought LFC would back out of the Aguero deal.'

Come on, were's the source? I'm actually becoming tired of the Aguero, Tevez, Ozil rumours. Being a huge reds fan i'd love them to happen. But I put my house on it Aguero signing will not be announced. So heart ruling head Liverpool fans can we have some based rumours please.

Figueroa only likely signing in the next couple of days from Liverpool.!(10)(17)

TheTruthTheWholeTruthAndNothingButTheTruth.

ARSENAL CURRENTLY HAVE DJOUROU, KOSCIELNY AND VERMAELEN, SONG CAN ALSO FILL IN AS A CENTRE BACK SO I WOULD IMAGINE ARSENAL WILL BUY ONE MORE CENTRE BACK AND A KEEPER! CESC WILL STAY MUCH TO HIS DISPLEASURE.

SCHWARZER & DIAKHATE POSSIBLY?(8)(11)

 

 27 Jul 2010 21:45:50
Liverpool have told Inter Milan that they value Argentine Midfielder Javier Mascherano at 32million Euros (£28mil). Inter are happy to pay this, having been told earlier this month that he would cost 41million euros (£35mil). With this money, Liverpool will step up their pursuit of West Ham's Scott Parker. While the hammers have said Parker isn't for sale, West Ham have discretely told suiters that they will entertain offers of £15mil upwards.(7)(9)

 

 27 Jul 2010 21:47:33
I read today that chelsea's plans to sign ramires could be in danger of falling through due to part of the transfer fee being picked up by his agent? Any truth to this ed? Also any idea on who chelsea are looking at bringing in? Thanks. {editor's note – I thought the hold up was because of the problems with sorting out his registration as he was in a similar position to Tevez and Mash when they joined West Ham.}(5)(5)

 

 27 Jul 2010 21:53:22
After todays press conference 4 more quality signings to come in the shape of

Hey Ed do you have any info on what happened to Schaner joining Liverpool. from what i remember it was almost a done deal and hes not half bad and for free is decent business. which makes me think that liverpool will probably not invest in a midfielder as we'll have lucas and schaner for the DM position and if ever needed gerrard can cover too. instead they'll go for a versatile front man who can play on the wings as well which brings into mind tevez because we do have the mach money. however purslow was in madrid so it could also be aguero or maybe even vdv? whats ur take on this?

True Red {editor's note – I think it was just his agent trying to drum up interest in his player. I don't think Scharner was ever actually close to joining.}(6)(8)

What is it with all the Aguero rumours again? Ed, surely thru ur source you could help dispel this rumour. As much as I would love to see him play for us, I just Cant see it happening. And I can't see any truth in the tevez rumours either. Onto rumourslb will be salcido, dm will be parker or Barry and striker I can only see Roy going with someone that epl experience, so darren bent, crouchie or Carlton Cole. Have u any updates Ed on Arda Turan?

N_Irish_Red {editor's note – there is nothing new to report on Turan, I doubt there will be any movement on anything other than a left back and striker until Mash is sold.}(6)(5)

Looks like Insua may not be going to Fiorintina after all after being unable to agree wages. which may mean we only need one LB and probably a more solid experienced one.

Also ive been told that Hodgson is atm wanting to use the following players for the europa cup qualifier:
Cavlieri, Kelly, Agger, Carragher, jovanovic, Spearing, Aquilani, Amoo, Babel, Ngog.

EHHH, THINK YOU ARE MISSING ONE. BABEL; NOT BACK FROM WORLD CUP YET. COME ON WE ARE THE BEST SUPPORTERS, DONT EMBRASS US WITH YOUR SH@YTE(6)(6)

Chelsea will have signed Ramires from benfica for £20 mil and Neymar from Santos for around £20 mil by the end of the week.

Carvalho will be leaving to reunite with Mourinho at Real madrid and chelsea will be looking to either sign philippe mexes or Giorgio Chiellini as his replacement.

Drogba and Ashely Cole are going NOWHERE and Chelsea are certainly not signing Fernando Torres during this transfer window.(7)(10)

 

 27 Jul 2010 21:31:55
The rumour about Antonio Lopes coming to Liverpool can be true, because Athletico Madrid signed a new left back today in the name of Filipe Luis from deportivo la coruna. So that's why CP was in Madrid. we'll just have to wait and see, its just my point of view.(8)(6)

 

 27 Jul 2010 21:34:16
Grayson says to expect a new signing at Leeds before the friendly with Wolves on Saturday

Names linked include potential loans of Caulkner and Delfouneso following England U19's exit(2)(6)

 

 27 Jul 2010 21:37:27
Liverpool Football Club have completed the signing of Figeroa for £8m from Wigan Football Club. The Reds will also complete the signing of Antonio Lopez and Sergio Aguero from Athletico Madrid for an estimated total of £40m. Ryan Babel will go in the opposite direction which could see the price drop by at least £8£10m.

If your wondering how LFC will afford this they will receive an estimated £30m from Inter Milan and £5m for Yossi Benayoun(Chelsea) and £5m for Albert Riera(Olympiakos) and £5m for Emiliano Insua.

It is very unlikely LFC will sign Raul as a Schalke deal is all but done.

David Ngog will sign for West Brom for £2m.

Torres will stay as Aguro, Joe Cole, Jovanovic, are big players that the club needs.

Another striker is likely to sign but won't be as well known. A move for Remy from nice is rumoured but LFC won't match the £15m that West Ham have offered. He will likely sign for his old club French Giants Lyon.

LFC Team:

Reina
Johnson
Carragher
Agger
Lopez
Cole
Gerrard
Lucas
Kuyt
Jovanovic
Torres(he will stay)(9)(11)

Is it just any 2 Africans or are your rumours going to get any more specific ? Janko ? oh my word, too much buckie and irn bru there. If eagles ain't coming and a die hard like boyd will not stay due to wages then there is not a hope in hell of getting janko slabber on(2)(10)

Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay has confirmed the Primera Liga side are interested in Liverpool attacker Dani Pacheco.
Despite his current form, the Barcelona youth product is believed to have been made available for loan by new manager Roy Hodgson.

Maxi Rodriguez has asked Roy Hodgson if he can leave after hearing that his former club Espanyol were ready to make a £5million offer and his fellow counrtymen Javier Mascherano and Emiliano Insua are both on their way out of the club. Christian Purslow is discussing the sale in Barcelona and is also discussing Maxi's potential replacement with Barcelona in Alexsandar Hleb who is available for a similar sort of fee to that of Maxi but I have also heard from my source that Insua's potential £5million move to Fiorentina is nearly dead due to wages.(10)(11)

Long time reader, first time poster I do luv this site, well done ed. Keep it coming, keeps me going when footy season is over., .never understand the slaggin of rumours this is a rumours site :) Anyway

take from this what you like but OZIL deal is done and dusted..
Heres the shocker could possibly line up beside fletcher, nani, andstephen Ireland plus Valencia next season yes that's right, fergie put a bid in last season for Ireland and has reiterated the bid, stephen wants to go to utd to pss off city & Utd have met the asking price, city are holding off for other bids as they are reluctant to sell to man u.

I live in cork n rumour has it here that Ireland deal is a matter of time, Ozil info comes from irelands agent willie mckay.. & no I don't know how he knows

Hoping the editor can give his opinion on this.. {editor's note – Ireland would love to move to United and Fergie would love to have him. The only thing that will stop this long term is City not wanting to sell to United. But I can't see it happening this summer, unless City get desperate to shift some players.}(12)(12)

 

 27 Jul 2010 20:40:22
Dont be surprised if Arsenal sign Ozil. Everyone going on about Man Utd, but Arsenal have also been tracking him before Utd even heard of him and that's a fact.

Why would we buy him? We have Wilshere who will be better for a year or two. And we can score, but can't defend well. So ..
all we need is some defenders and a GK.(9)(12)

 

 27 Jul 2010 20:01:43
To everyone on here i told you last week bellamy is 100% signing for celtic has already been agreed, celtic just waiting for mcgeady cash.next week we will also bring in wilson from forrest and a left back near the end of the window.hinkel, samaras, crossas will all be sold in the comeing weeks as will mcgeady.rangers will sell boughera near the end of the transfer window so they don't have to spend any of the money they get for him.remember you heard it hear first.the jamesy(20)(20)

Plymouths new investors are just that investors, do you realy think they won't seriously invest in the team, as the Americans say do the math, a team playing in the lower divisions playing in front of low crowds commands a low rental rate, a team playing premier league football in front of big crowds commands a high rental rate. Plymouth to get to the promised land need investment, who will provide this those that profit from it personally, ie the new investors, that's precisely why they are linked to Argyle, they will undoubtedly invest in the team sooner or later its the commercial world.(5)(6)

Just been on the united website, and looking at the player profiles united only have around 20ish players over 21 including Hargreaves and Anderson. So i don't understand why SAF has said he may leave them out of the 25 man squad when there is no need what so ever, even if injured. Does this mean he is saving room for some new signings over the age of 21? Ed what do you make of it.

Trickee {editor's note is there any rule limiting the number of changes you can make in January? Only it could be that effecting his thinking as well.}





27 Jul 2010 17:36:32
I think we have had enough of "ozil to epl" rumours coz frankly i can't remember a german international expect Thomas Hitzlsperger playing in epl. And y wud a German star move to England and risk his place in the squad?

Now for the dreamers!
Undoubtedly he wud be a great addition as a CM in utd squad and i guess he wud be a replacement for scholes in the long run.

green n gold"

Firstly German internationals playing in the Prem? How about Klinsmann, Hamann and Ziege?

Regards the United squad thing i think its more about Hargreaves than anything else, why put him in and fill a place till january if he's not going to be fit? Only signings expect is Ozil/ Defour either 1 or both. Most likely Ozil now and Defour in Jan. What you think ed?

Also think their will be a lot of keepers getting scouted as well. Thats the 2nd most importnat signing after the attacking mid.

O and to the tool posting about Rooney to Madrid, as if, yeha we'd really build for the future by seliing the one player who kept us in contention for most of last season, even the Glazer's aren't that stupid.

Robert The Red {editor's note – I think pretty much the same as you, though you might end up with Ninis instead of Ozil. He seems to have ended up as the back up plan!}(5)(10)

Just heard that Man City are willing to negotiate a number of potential loan signings and possibly 2 permanent deals with LFC to prevent being reported for tapping up Torres. This may include Tevez to Anfield (although I would prefer Aguero who has always stated a desire to play for Liverpool).

There has been no similar arrangement made with Chavski because LFC want a points deduction imposed on them. Don't be surprised if the Russian makes a hefty charitable donation to the Liverpool cause (similar to Man Ure with Spurs) which might be accepted to save Mr. Broughton any embarrassment.(10)(13)

 

 27 Jul 2010 20:24:11
LFC news: I have been informed that Rafa tied up 2 deals before his departure thinking that he would still be LFC's manager in 2010/11. Purslow knew that Rafa was going to get the sack at the time and wanted Rafa to use his clout to finalise these deals. This is the main reason for Purslow/Rafa fallout. The 2 players are Aguero and Mata. Forlan and Turan are smokescreens.(11)(5)

My wife's best friend's brother in law's second cousin's (by marriage) son's schoolmate mows the lawn in the same street where Dirk Kuyt was born. There! Now you know I'm in the know.
Well, these fine homeowners (can't reveal their names, of course) were saying that, during an intense session of P2P, Dirk overheard Fernando saying something like "I actually prefer blue outfits"; He also heard a stewart, right after training, say to his mate "I think the kid's missus prefers the tango", and Dirk was apparently very upset, when he overheard his parrot say "bench time, bench time". He obviously could not confide in anyone but his former neighbors, and did so by sending a pigeon with a message across the canal to deliver the news (the neighbors were never partial to that email rubbish).
All this was discussed, in a very discreet meeting between the former neighbors of Kuyt's parents, and their visiting auntie Bella, who is 93 and has a chronic gas problem. She then told my wife, who just happens to be her hairdresser, and of course my wife told me.
We can therefore firmly conclude the following:
Torres is leaving for Chelski. Aguero is coming to LFC. And Kuyt is texting Benitez to see if he can have that right wing spot at Inter. Done deals.
ED: Can there be even a shred of doubt that this is the most accurate transfer news you have received in a while?(10)(10)

Celtic fc

On July 1 it was announced that Werder Bremen and Sloboda Tuzla had come to an agreement over the transfer of Husejinović to Werder for 900,000.[1] On 17 January 2009 Husejinović was loaned to 1. FC Kaiserslautern until the end of the season (30 June 2009).[2] It was agreed on 27th of July that Celtic had agreed terms to bring him to the club in a swap deal with Morten Rasmussen.

Walter Smith to walk , All transfer targets are out of reach (Martin Bains fault not the bank) he will go in January and leave the funny guy from the telly to run with the youth squad who I hate to say it are the future of Scottish football, Rangers have the best crop of youth players in Britain. I know this as my son has just been released from Murray Park after his yearly assessment (not good enough) This story is the talk of the training ground. Walter is at loggerheads with Martin Bain as he doesn't trust him to see out contract talks with anyone. McCoist feels the same but his heart strings are keeping him their.(10)(21)

"Heard a whisper that Hodgson is letting Maxi leave as he's planning to use the bulk of the Mascherano money to bid for Milner. If City force price up beyond the current £24m the backup plan is a bid for David Bentley.
I've been told Milner is keen on a move to Anfield where he'll be a regular as opposed to City or Chelsea where he'll be a squad man.
Scott Parker being lined up to replace Mascherano with Ngog a possible makeweight.
Hodgson will play Kuyt and Babel as strikers so don't expect a big money move for another forward. Pacheco will be 4th choice.
Another surprise departure could be Aquilani.AC Milan sniffing."

Uhm, yeah.. 24m is what City want to pay but O'Neill's playing hardball. It's 30m or nothing for Milner (which could include players). So, 24m isn't going to get him.(10)(14)

Sum1 sed on here that torres was a liverpool fan. that is not true. he supported athletico. his faverioute english team wasnt even liverpool it was arsenal.

It's well known that this is a rumour site, and that the lies that are trotted out as fact are quite often hilarious. However, is there a way that we can filter out the complete BS that some muppets spout without checking for any semblance of fact? Torres and his mates were ALL Liverpool supporters the mates all had tattoos done and, because he was Athletico's captain, Torres had "we'll never walk alone" inscribed on his armband (which was a birthday present and hence the first line of his song).

Torres was that in love with Arsenal that he turned them down twice before signing for the club that he really wanted. Read his book sometime and check the facts and get a grownup to explain hte big words.

On transfer matters, Roy would like to add Crouch to the squad but a) the player is reluctant to go back to sitting on the bench and b) 'Arry is reluctant to do business with a top rival this will also rule out the proposed bid LFC were going to make for Tom Huddlestone.

Diego Forlan is still high on the list of candidates for being Torres' partner. Huntelaar will only be bought as a direct replacement, although Man Citeh are willing to offer Ireland, Adebayor and Richards or Lescott for Fernando. My source is Steve Hardwick who is the head physio at Everton's academy.(7)(11)

I can confirm the ally mccoist twitter page is totally fake. he said that roberto carlos, gattuso and james beattie are all at ibrox or have been for talks. he also said obertan will fly out to aus tomorrow. so the lies right away is the fact rangers will sign only three players and 1 will be either the south african or the croatian the south african is looking more likely and the south african defender but don't no who the other is but it wil be a winger. rangers team next season Mcgregor, Whittikar, Bougherra/webster/south african/weir, Papac, new winger, davis, mcculoch/edu, naismith/fleck, miller, croatian/south african/ lafferty. that is my opinion.

total to spend 4.5 5 mill(6)(10)

The Tevez to Liverpool rumour (which I posted earlier today and approx 10 days ago) is gathering pace and quite rightly so, as it WILL happen Apparently, a clause in his contract means he can leave for £20m, which would be an absolute bargin.

He will be joined by Gareth Barry (seen as a cheaper alternative to Parker), Wayne Bridge and Wright Phillips, as Man City are forced to trim their squad (due to the new player restrictions)

Also, coming (on loan) is Lescott and Raul from Madrid (partly to keep Torres happy), who will act as player/coach.(4)(7)

Just been informed that Sergio Aguero has been signed by LFC and will be announced on Friday. £23M is the figure being mentioned (rising to £26M). Benitez was in Madrid on behalf of LFC (before his departure) and began negotiations for Kun back then. Purslow was recently in Madrid for this deal. The deal got delayed because Mascherano sale money was supposed to have been used for Aguero. Due to no Masch sale, Purslow had to make an arrangement for funds to acquire Aguero and then head out to Madrid to complete the deal. Torres was in two minds as he thought LFC would back out of the Aguero deal.(51)(18)

Why would ozil go to arsenal when he clearly said he wants to win trophies, and stating in the prem he would go to either utd or chelsea. In addition if barca came calling he would jump at the chance. IMO barca have got enough quality in that area, he won't get a game TBH. So he will either stay at Bremen and agree something in January or he will go in this window to barca, utd, chelsea or real (however they want khedira). And also real have kaka unless they sell him ozil will not go to real!(18)(18)

"For all the people saying Ozil was at the airport last yesterday, you were all correct. My mate Garath brooks works for Style limosines Manchester, and was tasked with collecting Ozil and his representives and delivering them to Manchester uniteds training ground Carrington. He then dropped them 3.5 hours later at an undisclosed hotel. Looks like Fergie has his man. Parkey"

If the destination was an undisclosed hotel, how would your mate know where to drop them off?? Utter crp.

Guess your in the know then hey mate. This site is full of peoples dreams, i only tell the truth. You know and i know where Ozil will end up, but to disclose the hotel, are you going mad ?

Parkie
_

How do you spell your name? Have you decided yet? Please don't post rubbish, Ozil has been at training and has already said he will stay for one more season before a possible move to the premiership, when he would favour a move to Arsenal.

Your the clown mate if you think Ozil will stay and he favours a move to Arsenal. He's for sale officially and he has said he favours utd or chelsea(20)(11)

Said Husejinović to Celtic Done deal according to Wikipedia! Never heard of him but his goal scoring record isn't the best.
Wiki puts him down as a 22 year old Bosnian forward

Luccin should never get the chance to play in the Hoops after spitting at big Johnny Hartson. Hartson is a Celtic legend..Celtic fans have long memories and wouldn't take to him. Don't know what Lenny's thinking of!(18)(18)

In reply to:

Thanks for confirming that he wasn't on the squad list, somebody told me that he WAS on there (and tbh i thought i'd seen him too).

As for your claim that Boothroyd will be starting Doyle, I beg to differ. He's said to Doyle that he wouldn't stand in his way if he wants to leave. Sammy Clingan is a far better player, and IMO he will definately start ahead of Doyle. We also have Isaac Osbourne & Gary Deegan (although currently out injured), as well as Martin Crainie who can cover DM. James McPake is the first choice centre back at City, with Wood his probable partner, with Grandison and Turner as backup (Although a new CB signing would provide competition). If Doyle does stay he will rarely feature and only be used to cover injuries.

I would ordinarily agree but I think most Cov fans were surprised when doyle was sent on loan. He still has alot to offer. Add to that the fact that he is good friends with mcsheffrey and the fact that he is now on the club website with a squad number 8. I know squad numbers don't mean much but its not the sign of someone who is due to be sold. I just think he fits in better with boothroyds style of hard working midfielders. Although boothroyd did say that clingan has a big role to play this season. With regards to defence my personal choice would be cranie with wood atm but its really anybodies guess. He could play mcpake, cranie or sign someone. Not so long ago boothroyd claimed he wanted 3 more full signings and some premiership quality youngsters on loan. That was before he signed carsley and Jutkiewicz i believe so make of that what you will. Either way it could be an interesting season.(3)(10)

Sky Sports News last night reported on their tickertape that one of their sources has revealed Torres has told Liverpool he needs Champions league football, and will want to leave. It also said that most bookmakers have suspended all betting on Torres leaving, and that Chelsea was his desired destination. Just typed "football transfer odds" into google and checked out the betting claim, and every bookmaker you can think of has indeed suspended betting, and no odds are available. Skybet is the ONLY bookie still offering odds, and they are 13 he signs for Chelsea and 41 he is still at Anfield. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news as i am gutted.

OH GOSH, SUPRISE, SUPRISE, SKY 'SOURCES' WERE WRONG. NOW FOR THE STING IN THE TAIL, LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB TO REPORT CHELSKI AND MAN SHITY TO THE FA AND FIFA FOR 'TAPPING UP' TORRES IN THE NEXT MONTH. THOSE GUYS FELL FOR IT HOOK LINE AND SINKER. TRANSFER BAN ANYONE? GOOD ODDS ON SKY BET ! TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAME BOYS

Or for the really hardnut conspiracy theorists out there.. Sell us ur spare players cheap and we won't report ya?

Looks like Insua may not be going to Fiorintina after all after being unable to agree wages. which may mean we only need one LB and probably a more solid experienced one.

To the Spurs and Arsenal fans claiming Ozil will sign for them. I can categorically tell you if anyone bids for Ozil Man Utd will match it and lets be honest if Utd come calling Ozil will end up at OT. He's been tracked since he was a youth at Bremen and Utd wold never let him sign for another EPL club. Thats the long and the short of it. The Ozil saga will go 1 of 3 ways 1. (most likely) he will end up at Utd, 2. He will stay at bremen and sign a new contract, 3. He will sign for Bayern and the only reason they will sign him is to stop anyone else getting him. And lets be honest they kinda have first dibs on any german youth.


IF MAN URE COME CALLING HE WILL END UP AT OLD TRAFFORD? YEAH JUST LIKE RAMSEY DID YOU MUG.

 27 Jul 2010 18:35:27
These are just some suggestions that i have put together regards various players and their most probable destinations!..

Mesut Ozil Man United rumoured to be in the hunt for him along with Spurs and Barcelona. I fully expect Ozil to be transfered this summer to a surprise club as werder bremen want to cash in due to his contract expiring next summer..VerdictBarcelona as they will miss out on cesc!!..

Loic Remy West Ham Liverpool and even Arsenal were all in the hunt for this player about two weeks ago. This has all died down and i fully expect him to play his trade in Ligue 1 with Olympique Lyon!..They have first prefrence on where his next move is and they will do a deal with Nice for his services!..

Fernando Torres Hodgson quoted as saying ''He is looking forward to playnig for Liverpool next season''..If that is not enough EVIDENCE for you Man City and Chelsea muppets to stop making up ludicrous stories about him well then you have to get checked out!.Liverpool player and always a Liverpool player!!!..

Arda Turan This player reffered to as the Golden boy of Turkish Football has been linked with two clubs this summer and only one have a realistic chance of getting him!.That is Liverpool!..With the departure of Riera and sadly the departure of Rodriguez Liverpoool are once again stuck for wide men!..Arda fits the bill perfectly and expect him to line up alongside gerrard and torres next season!!!!.

Klaas Jan Huntelaar Man city are rumoured to be in the hunt for him. This seems a bit strange beacuse they will then have Tevez, Bellamy, Santa Cruz, Adebayor, Expectably Balotelli, Robinho. Why on earth would they want Huntelaar too. Spurs on the other hand may want Huntelaar if Robbie Keane leaves the club for Villa. Expect Liverpool to rival their bid if Spurs go in for him!..

Yannick Djalo Newcastle were rumoured to be in for him a while back!..Tottenham were also interested!.Im not saying both are not any more im just sayin interest has cooled a little bit!A young and exciting prospect and would be a steal for any team!..

Neymar Chelsea supposedly made an offer to Santos for him. £17 million was quoted but i believe Santos want close to £30 million for him!..expect a player cash deal for him as Ancelotti is very keen!..

Steven Defour Man United very keen on this centre midfielder. Quoted to be worth around the £12 million mark liverpool are also keen as Mascherano will be in the Giuseppe Mezza very soon!..Expect Sir Alex and Roy to compete for his signature!..

Alexis Sanchez His club Udinese don't want to part with this exciting winger!.Undoutably the star of Chiles world cup United were linked with him. Dont expect any movement for Sanchez for another couple of years!!..

Royston Drenthe Despite his alleged Facebook claims that were supposedly wide of the mark he may find a new club as Madrid pursue a new left back!..Liverpool may come calling but they may seek other targets with Antonio Lopez of Atl. Madrid and Maynor Figueroa Hodgsons main priorities!..

Oscar Cardozo The Benfica talisman has beeen unexpectedly quiet in the Transfer market. Jorge Jesus has insisted he will not part company with his leading attacker but Villa may come calling if their efforts to land Robbie Keane fall through!

Anyway that's my theroys based on reading this website and others!please if you wish your thoughts ed..hman!!..(16)(14)

Barcelona looked to have missed out on fabregas, they are now turning their attention to mesut ozil :). guardiola was impressed with him last season for werder and the world cup looks to have sealed the deal. Also with the money from the departures of chygrynsky and toure they will invest in 2 or 3 more players. they will attempt khadira, this will give busquets competition in his position. they will sign an argentine striker, most likely tevez or aguero, whoever messi recommends, the point in this signing is to see who will partner villa upfront, ibra/tevez or aguero/pedro/bojan. they will not sign another defender as they have marquez, milito, pique, puyol, and abidal who can play centre back, they also have alves, adriano and maxwell. they have pinto as a backup goalkeeper, but he has been dodgy whenever he was given the opportunity, particularly against sevilla in the copa del rey. this could influence a move for frey to challenge valdes and provide good cover for whoever takes up the goalkeeper position.

valdes
alves pique puyol abidal

busquets
xavi iniesta

messi

tevez villa

subs: Frey, milito/marquez, adriano/maxwell, khadira, ozil, ibra, bojan/pedro

the big man

(1) (2)

mate im not the type of person who has something against barca but i don't see how you expect them to sign the likes of tevez, khedira, adriano and ozil it just makes no sense when they have such high debts at the moment. Maybe in january or next summer but for now i can't see it im afraid.(5)(15)

Ed please put this out there.Been looking over the net about Temasek Holdings.Looks like whoever linked this yesterday on here may have been talking sense.

On July 8, Temasek reported a 42% full recovery of its portfolio to S$186bn (US$134bn), but net profit fell 26% to S$4.6 billion. S$10 billion new investments were made over the year, with the most recent in resources and energy sectors.
.
SingBridge International was established to develop integrated townships and largescale projects in Asia.

Agreed fee with one of the top football clubs in the world for takeover. It is anticipated this takeover will be complete early august.

Now the bottom bit is interesting as along with this, they have a large stake in Standard Chartered LFC'S SPONSOR

Jigsaw and pieces coming together? Also this would help our expansion into Asia.

Steve {editor's note did you check and see when the article had been edited? If it was very recently, then someone is probably altering it to fit their story.}

To ed this could actually be true.

aslo press conference at 2 oclock today is for joe cole will be on skysports news from 3 oclock

this info is from wikipedia so I wouldn't trust it 100% anyway. It also says that they have made a bid for Liverpool fc at the bottom of the investments bit, which could easily have been put up to support a story even if the other stuff is true. If this is true then liverpool would be funded by the singapour government who own Temasek holdings which is slightly worrying (remember the old man city owner from Thailand).

However I would also like to post some rumours about LFC neighbours everton. David moyes has been told the only way he will be able to sign anyone is through sales. Yobo is the only one who is deffinately going.moyes wants at least 5M for him but interested parties are not willing to pay so much for an average injury prone player. Loan deals are still a possibility though because no transfer is required. The ben arfa deal has stalled because of the yobo transfer fees not being enough. However marseille are willing to send him on loan if a substantial loan fee was paid to them which unfortunately everton cannot afford.(8)(11)

maxi rodriguez to be sold clubs in spain being touted for his signature,
this to the editor
i have posted a fact about torres and his impending move to chelsea and yet you have not printed it i am the only one with a very reliable contact at the club so when i see you print the ste that blair mayne posts it annoys me to think that my true info is being ignored believe me i am correct in saying this TORRES IS GOING TO CHELSEA FACT
remember the name remember theturdz
and may theturdz be with you


howcome your never right then..??
ive been looking at your posts for god knows how long and not one thing your ''source'' told you has come to be seen as truth..
and don't give it all that ''i can't reveal my source or he'l get sacked'
i have two sources..ones an agent (more of a friend of a friend) and the other one works in the legal end of a global sports manufacturer which its uk base is in stockport..
the agent has been 50/50..however heres the interesting part.the other one told me months ago that assurances were sought by torres and gerrard and pepe reina that they would be staying untill AT LEAST the end of the 2010/2011 season.
reason being that it has cost that company ALOT of money to advertise the new kit..if either those two left they would have to pull the ads,
and that my friend is the truth
(ps. a cleaner or a stewart dosent count as a source mate ;) )

Plymouth new pitch 500k completed, guardian football story reveals top businessman investing in plymouth argyle, plymouth world cup city status confirmed, work starts next may on increaing capacity to 27,000 before second phase to 48,000, all of this would indicate significant investment is likely. Plymouth to win league one with peter reid at the helm. Any player with ambition must realise Plymouth argyles infrastructure is being totally revamped, I would expect with all of these plans either completed ie pitch, or in the pipeline for a significant amount to be spent on players, or whats the point in all of these other schemes.

Do Plymouth have that many fans?

no not realy but other teams have a capacity which they can't get a sell out.(4)(6)

This is arsenals current squad:
GKAlmunia, Fabianski, mannone(hg)
RBSagna, Eboue
CBVermaelen, Koscielny, Djourou(hg)
LBClichy(hg)
CDMSong(hg)
CMFabregas(hg), Denilson(hg), Diaby, Rosicky
RWWalcott(hg), Nasri
LWArshavin, Vela(hg)
STVan Persie, Chamakh, Bendtner(hg)
U21Ramsey, Wilshere, Gibbs, Traore, Eastmond,
Lansbury, Szczesny, EmmanuelThomas, Frimpong,
Barazite, Bartley, Watt, and others

The main squad consists of 21 players, 9 of which are homegrown, 1 of which is english (to me this makes the purpose of the new rules look like a joke)
this means that Wenger is free to sign 4 players over 21 without having too many players which dispells rumours that the Jakielga rumours are because of ne rules, it also means that no players need to be sold to comply with new rules. Arsene has put the club in a strong position by investing so much time on the youth system and now we have yopuths such as wilshere gibbs and ramsey who make our squad have more wiggle room to create more strength and depth if needed, onto rumours marchetti and sakho's names hve popped up today I don't expect either to be signed really as marchetti is only being linked because he declared he wanted to leave the caligari and he was linked as one of those world cup transfers, sakho was linked before a few seasons ago and i think a m0ve would have been made by now if wenger was interested. would love to see hazard in our jersey soon though, world class.
anyone see any probs with the squad, ED? {editor's note – the reasons for signing Jagielka are to be ready for the seasons after when the home grown rules tighten up even more. The intention is to increase the number of home grown players in the squad over the next few seasons.}(12)(4)

Reported this just over a week ago. Tevez is on his way to Anfield. Source, the same Academy player who told me about Cole two weeks before it happened.

How do you know about Cole when he didn't know himself?

He did know and was approached before the World Cup. This was confirmed by Harry Redknapp who said he had already signed for another team.

actually redknapp thought he was going to man u who were in talks but turned him him down as man u were unwilling to match his wage demands due to his injurys in the past and thanfully liverpool got him we will be back in the top 4 next season.(10)(17)

Mascherano is sold to Inter for 25M, so it doesn't mean the end for Liverpool, as they are currently in negotiations with three/four quality players who are avid to join the reds. They are;

Ever Banega: Tipped as the next "Mascherano". I wouldn't call him that coz quiet frankly, he doesn't tackle "hard" like Masch, yet he is a genuine ball winner, furthermore, he gets more goals in a season than what Javier will ever get in his life, and has a better pinpoint pass than the Argentina captain, hence i would call him the Argentinian "Pirlo" more than that loser.

Arda Turan/Juan Mata: We can buy both of these players as if we do, we automatically cover both the right and left side of midfield and both players can swap positions during the game.

AND, our MAJOR signing will be none other than

KEISUKE HONDA!!: He has already said that Liverpool wanted him and he is actually best "utility" player in the world right now alongside James Milner ie, he can play in any position on the damn pitch. The reason why we need him is because he can suceed Steven Gerrard and quiet frankly lives up to him.

remember me, Alzo.(23)(14)

To the bloke who said "this would be big news if it has so joe bloggs in toxteth aint gonna know before the stock exchange", why the hell would the stock exchange know? Liverpool aren't listed and therefore the Stock Exchange would know when they read it in the papers like everyone else.

That said, i agree that noone on here would know. Let's face it, the calibre of people involved in these types of M&A transaction are hardly the sort of people to blab to anyone AT ALL let alone a Football Rumours website. Face facts, if you are important enough to know what is going on, you are smart enough to keep it confidential. Deliberate disinformation would be to a rather better source (not dissing the website Ed, I think it is a fantastic read and I am glued daily!). {editor's note – I fully agree to be honest, everything is being kept away from the footballing people because they blab.}(21)(7)

When's the highlyanticipated LFC press conference? Heard from my cousin who lives near Melwood and heard it, believe it or not, in a PUB that Aguero (Sergio Leonel "Kun" Agero del Castillo) is headed to Anfield? Any truth in this, Ed? My cousin claims that Torres would stay on for another season before deciding on his future. {editor's note I have heard nothing about Aguero joining other than online wishlists.}

Dreadful News

Sky Sports News last night reported on their tickertape that one of their sources has revealed Torres has told Liverpool he needs Champions league football, and will want to leave. It also said that most bookmakers have suspended all betting on Torres leaving, and that Chelsea was his desired destination. Just typed "football transfer odds" into google and checked out the betting claim, and every bookmaker you can think of has indeed suspended betting, and no odds are available. Skybet is the ONLY bookie still offering odds, and they are 13 he signs for Chelsea and 41 he is still at Anfield. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news as i am gutted.

OH GOSH, SUPRISE, SUPRISE, SKY 'SOURCES' WERE WRONG.. NOW FOR THE STING IN THE TAIL, LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB TO REPORT CHELSKI AND MAN SHITY TO THE FA AND FIFA FOR 'TAPPING UP' TORRES IN THE NEXT MONTH. THOSE GUYS FELL FOR IT HOOK LINE AND SINKER.

Rangers to sign Jelavic from rapid vienna for 1.5 million in the coming weeks i also expect a right or left midfielder to join possibilties are eagles/riordan/morrison(WEST BROM) and a left back or centre half one or the other if it a the fullback it will be almost certainly paul dixon hes a rangers fan but we would have serve up bout 1 mil for his services which i dout we would settle for a stand in left back if it is a CB then it will be between beneluane or mark reynolds dnt rule out a move for a right back if we don't require a centre half this could pave way for the return of alan hutton on season long loan from spurs if they can give celtic robbie keane am sure mr redknapp would give us hutton i think wilkshire would be a gd buy impressed me at the WC he would around 12 million what do the other rangers fans think??

I am a Gers fan! A season ticket holder! C'mon whoever wrote this dross above!! Riordan?? We all know he would never sign for Rangers!! why does he keep getting mentioned!! Hes an ex celtic player, he's barred from every pub in edinburgh, he couldnt cut it playing for a better team than hibs, so went back to them! Do you honestly think Walter and ally would want that in their team! and have to part precious millions for him! I don't think so!

Oh well turns out Kraptalk got it all wrong again. Of course I'm referring to the World Exclusive report regarding the Press Conference held at Anfield earlier today in which it was rumoured that so called "big news" was to be announced. Where was the big announcement regarding possible new owners? Signing of a new player? etc. Funnily enough this big exclusive was also removed from his own site. I think some people need to stick to playing champ manager and leave genuine rumours to those in the know.

It says something when Man Utd fans know more about Liverpool FC than a socalled Liverpool fan.

Don't buy into Kraptalk, it's the realm of the armchair fan who lives in a fantasy world.

Now that my rant is over I shall quell another rumour the BMW and range rover entourage that was seen on Queens Drive escorted by the police was for a Royal visit from Camilla and Co for the visit of the Queen Victoria. Unless the Windsors fancy investing in Liverpool FC I don't think there is much to this to be honest.

Yours a very disappointed LFC fan

!!FACT ALERT!
Source: Liverpool Echo
Quote: Roy Hodgson, today 27th July
Subject: Fernando Torres

""he has told us that he's looking forward to Monday, looking forward to getting back to work and looking forward to playing for Liverpool next season."

Bookies do get it wrong sometimes!! Franck Ribery didn't sign last season and Fernando Torres is 'looking forward to playing for Liverpool next season'

Anyway, now that Mascherano has effectively handed in his transfer request, the Reds have some money to spend. Dont expect to see this spent on a central midfielder though, as we already have Gerrard, Aquilani, Lucas and even young Spearing (no point in spending 25m on Milner for example).

Expect to see LFC sign a marquee striker to go alongside Torres in a new formation, such as Tevez (yes, Tevez!), Aguero, Suarez or even Etoo and more young English talent (Connor Wickham).

My sources may not be as strong as others (ears to the ground in the city), but this all stacks up in terms of keeping Torres, impressing new owners, revenue from player sales and club player policy in terms of buying british.

In the meantime, TORRES IS STAYING! FACT!

Barcelona looked to have missed out on fabregas, they are now turning their attention to mesut ozil :). guardiola was impressed with him last season for werder and the world cup looks to have sealed the deal. Also with the money from the departures of chygrynsky and toure they will invest in 2 or 3 more players. they will attempt khadira, this will give busquets competition in his position. they will sign an argentine striker, most likely tevez or aguero, whoever messi recommends, the point in this signing is to see who will partner villa upfront, ibra/tevez or aguero/pedro/bojan. they will not sign another defender as they have marquez, milito, pique, puyol, and abidal who can play centre back, they also have alves, adriano and maxwell. they have pinto as a backup goalkeeper, but he has been dodgy whenever he was given the opportunity, particularly against sevilla in the copa del rey. this could influence a move for frey to challenge valdes and provide good cover for whoever takes up the goalkeeper position.

Heard a whisper that Hodgson is letting Maxi leave as he's planning to use the bulk of the Mascherano money to bid for Milner. If City force price up beyond the current £24m the backup plan is a bid for David Bentley.
I've been told Milner is keen on a move to Anfield where he'll be a regular as opposed to City or Chelsea where he'll be a squad man.
Scott Parker being lined up to replace Mascherano with Ngog a possible makeweight.
Hodgson will play Kuyt and Babel as strikers so don't expect a big money move for another forward. Pacheco will be 4th choice.
Another surprise departure could be Aquilani..AC Milan sniffing.(35)(30)

Let me see if i get this correct Mathieu FLamini is availible for 4m and AW isn't interested but is in De Jong, has the world gone mental. Flamini a far superior player, has proven arsenal, EPL and CL experince would fit perfectly next to song in midfield allowing oh yes one of best mates Cesc to get forward. This would fit in with the rumours Wenger fancies 2 holding midfielders this season. Am sorry i know he left but come on is there any Gunners fans who wouldn't like him in the shirt again?

Goalkeeper has to be Steklenberg and please sign Cahill not Merstacker he is s. Even Marquez would be preferable.

In response to:
Ozil has only been at Werder for a year coming over from Schalke 04 to replace Diego. Did Utd really track him as a youth at Bremen?.I think not

United have followed ozil since he was 16 and although i have no issue with you picking someone up on the fact that he came from schalke, you should probably check your facts as he has been there since 2008 and not the 1 year that you claim.

Concerning this. United attempted to sign Ozil from schalke before he signed for Bremen. Moreover, Fergie made a £9m bid for Ozil in the January window, which was rejected. As I have mentioned this apparent dedication from United to sign Ozil MAY help them clinch the deal they so desperately need. Bookies have also slashed odds of Ozil signing for united.

I am not a window cleaners brother or a mate of the sandwich lady at Melwood but I am a Kop season ticket holder and know a few x players and 1 x manager. No one knows for certain what is happening but strong links to a number of players.
The takeover is at bid stage only and due to the mistakes made previously due diligence will be indepth, it is looking like late August at the earliest for any type of announcement. PWC who were representing DIC have inside info on this.

Milner is a potential surprise once the funds for Masch have been confirmed and with the money raised thus far: Yossi 5, Reira 4, Insua 5 together with the 15 million promised we should have c65 million.
Key focus will be a strike partner (Tevez or Huntelaar) Tevez has a release clause for £20 million.
Parker and Benega have been watched last season as it was obvious Masch wants out.
Turan is liked by Kenny but Roy needs to study him more.

Liverpool have made a £3.5 million bid for Mexican left back Carlos Salcido with PSV resigned to losing the player. Rumours that Hodgson is interested in Wayne Bridge are true although his first choice has always been Salcido. Hodgson is also holding out for £30 million for Javier Mascherano and is hoping to bring in Scott Parker from West Ham United but would hope to pay no more than £16 million for the 29 year old.
Roy Hodgson is still keen to bring in an additional striker. An experienced left back, central midfielder and striker will wrap up his business for the transfer window.

Breaking News:
Liverpool's Maxi Rodriguez is in Barcelona negotiating a deal to sign for his former club Espanyol. Roy Hodgson has told him that he is not in his first team plans so he can leave should the right offer come in. I am shocked to hear this as i thought he was quality. This should mean that Roy will be looking for a new right sided midfielder.
Happy to answer any questions from the editor or anyone else,
Thanks
Liverbird



Hodgsom didn't tell him he wasn't in his first team plans, he said he wasn't going to be in the first team every week like Reina, Gerrard and Torres, and said he could talk to other clubs if he wanted.

As far as I know, Maxi is just exploring his options, as with Mascherano and Insua going he would be the only Argentine at the club and that isn't a great feeling, but unless we get a bid of over 5 million for him I expect him to be a Liverpool player next season.(29)(26)

 

 27 Jul 2010 16:36:27
The reason many of the PL clubs are so quiet on the transfer market at the moment is they are waiting for City to complete there purchases.

This is for two reasons

1) Lowers the price of the players that are left as City MASSIVELY increases the value (even if only rumours) and very few clubs in Europe have any serious money

2) With the new PL 25 man squad rules, City will need to offload AT LEAST 9 players. So teams are waiting to see what they can pick up cheap (especially Liverpool as many of the surplus will be "homegrown" and they are in desperate need to fill the 8 spots with come quality)(23)(10)

Interesting reading Fergie's comments on Danny Welbeck. I have spoken to a guy connected to OT and he was surprised Welbeck would be going out on loan. He's looked really sharp in the preseason and thought he would play more of a role in the first team this year. That being said he knows fergie is putting quite a bit of faith in Owen being fit and Berba scoring goals this year. He also said the feeling inside OT is that Hernandez will have more of an impact on the EPL than people may think!!

anyway i tried to prize any transfer stories out of him and he basically said he hasnt a clue. he doesn't think may people do to be honest. He drew his own conclusions by saying it won't be a striker so forget about Benzema. He knows Fergie was keen on Balotelli at the start of the year but the board told him to wind his neck in a wee bit hence the hernandez signing!! Its believed if anyone comes in at all it will be in midfiled and the general feeling is a CAM as this was what was missing last year particulary with scholes dropping deeper. Defour, Ozil and Ninis names being touted but i think there is concern over Defour's fitness so
He advised it may be the usual Utd rush at the last minute of the window tho!!

Just what i was told any thoughts Ed?

Stu {editor's note – I think the same as his him, United are biding their time, probably waiting to see how Defour gets on before grabbing him. I think his fitness will be the key to Fergie's transfer plans.}(21)(7)

ARSENAL
I was wondering why on earth Wenger would want Jagielka, who is another relatively short centre back at around 6ft. Then it dawned upon me that Arsenal need to have 8 over 21 years of age, english qualified players & I can only find 7. Which would mean, if Arsenal don't sign another English over 21 player they would only have a squad of 24 over age players, instead of 25. Wenger's choice is limited to a keeper, I can think of decent one to sign, other than Joe Hart, who Man City probably won't sell. The other option would be a replacement for Fab, if he goes or a center back, hence Jagielka.(9)(19)

Dont be surprised if Arsenal sign Ozil. Everyone going on about Man Utd, but Arsenal have also been tracking him before Utd even heard of him and that's a fact. Nothing is known yet but we'l see wot happens coz it looks like fabregas is staying another year. If not Ozil, then i can see a DM coming in to give song some competetion. Also I see Akinfeev/Sketlenburg and Mertesacker/Subotic coming.

I think in total 3 more players will be signed.

Akinfeev or Sketelenburg
Mertesacker or Subotic
Ozil or De Jong"

There is no evidence whatsoever of arsenal ever tracking ozil. Its just arsenal fans who think all upcoming young talent who are total footballers will sign for arsenal that are creating these rumours. United were the first club to track ozil. He was tracked at his youth days by united scouts. There are even photos of united scouts watching him regularly. A prime united scout said about a year and a half ago in jan 2009, that "the way he arrives in the box unseen is like a ghost" Arsenal only came to notice him at the U21 WC. Ozil has said that the only clubs in england who interest him are united and chelsea. He also said "money is not an issue with me, if i leave moving to a different country is what fascinates me. Its trophies not money that i want." The last line is very important! Trophies! You haven't got any in last 6 years! Also he wants first team football in his preferred position i.e attacking mid, with interchanging with wingers regularly. Arsenal have fabregas stamped on in that position and if he leaves i expect nasri to take that role wile chelsea have lampard in the center and malouda(who was brilliant last year) on the left. So i don't expect them to sign him either but there is a chance. People having been raving about barcelona but does he even have a 1% chance of breaking into that squad regularly? I don't think so. Also his style of play is very different to barcelona's. He is a more of a counter attack and pacy type player while barcelona rarely counter attack as most of the time its they who have the ball!(15)(24)

Any money left over will be for Masch replacement and ST.Masch replacement most likely to be Parker as Hodgson wants prem experience, cheap, and homegrown.
Striker ive been told is likely to be Jovetic because hes young and not too expensive and apparently interested in moving to liverpool.
Other players who ive been told Hodgson is looking at are:
CDM:Toulalan(but said wants to stay in france)/Poulson/been offered Tiago and offered Muntari
ST:Apparently Hodgson is waiting for new owners wether in jan or end of this window so he can get a truly world class striker to partner Torres Hopefully someone like Aguero/Dzeko/Tevez.

So out: Mascherano £2530M Degen £1.3M
IN:Figueroa £4.7M(LB) Parker £13.2M (CM) Jovetic (ST/RW) £22M

Dont be surprised if Arsenal sign Ozil. Everyone going on about Man Utd, but Arsenal have also been tracking him before Utd even heard of him and that's a fact. Nothing is known yet but we'l see wot happens coz it looks like fabregas is staying another year. If not Ozil, then i can see a DM coming in to give song some competetion. Also I see Akinfeev/Sketlenburg and Mertesacker/Subotic coming.

I think in total 3 more players will be signed.

Akinfeev or Sketelenburg
Mertesacker or Subotic
Ozil or De Jong


How it this a fact? because you have typed it on this site?

BTW ED, what do you think of the bookies closing bets on Ozil? {editor's note – that can mean a number of things. Normally just means they are unable to lay off any more bets.}(9)(21)

Plymouths new investors. Eddie o connor founder mainstream energy, Larry hirst chairman IBM europe, bankers Bernard taylor, Russell chambers, David rowe, Richard metcalfe, Rob lucas partner in cvc capital partners, Donald mcgarva head of DHL asia logistics operation, insurance magnates Joe plumeri and Peter wood, pr man Roland rudd. This is revealed as one of the Guardians main football stories today, Plymouth will seriously invest before too long. Plymouth argyle have a board with serious intent, the chairman is Sir Roy Gardener ex man utd chairman its all in place to take off. Personally I think Sir Roys ego has been hit hard by argyles relegation, he feels he has to rectify his failings and is doing so.

Sorry but this is a purly financial investment group opportunity hovering over the potential of the 2018 world cup bid. The investors, if the bid is sucessful, would commercially build and run the stadia then lease it back to the club who will NOT be part of the venture.
Its a win win because the ground and area are in a poor state but lets not get overheated into thinking there will be a large investment into the playing side because there won't be. The club does need though to be alive and viable for a bid to suceed(11)(2)

Bristol City Rumour!

Heard quite abit about the transfers that Bristol City are after . Ibrahim Sonko under pompys noses, seeing Steve Coppell worked with him at Reading. Also signing Nicky Hunt (Bolton) on a free after contract talks fell to fill in for Bradley Orr. Jon Stead signing some time this week. But heard Plymouth have put bid in for Stead, if we fail on him then quick swoop for Wigan flop Jason Scotland who was awesome in the Championship for Swansea. Even a loan for Micheal Johnson from Man City who are trying to offload unwanted players to fill in the leaving Paul Hartley who is going to Scotland. Still on the search for a goalkeeper.(15)(8)

Rangers to sign Jelavic from rapid vienna for 1.5 million in the coming weeks i also expect a right or left midfielder to join possibilties are eagles/riordan/morrison(WEST BROM) and a left back or centre half one or the other if it a the fullback it will be almost certainly paul dixon hes a rangers fan but we would have serve up bout 1 mil for his services which i dout we would settle for a stand in left back if it is a CB then it will be between beneluane or mark reynolds dnt rule out a move for a right back if we don't require a centre half this could pave way for the return of alan hutton on season long loan from spurs if they can give celtic robbie keane am sure mr redknapp would give us hutton i think wilkshire would be a gd buy impressed me at the WC he would around 12 million what do the other rangers fans think??(21)(28)

Right first things first stop listing extravagant lists of players going to celtic they can't pay high wages and are not even the top team in scotland anymore (which is really saying something)

liverpool fans need to accept that there is no deal in principle or otherwise anywhere near being on the directors table this would be big news if it has so joe bloggs in toxteth aint gonna know before the stock exchange

torres will not be bought by anyone as he is injured and his value is now lower so why would liverpool sell him

mascherano (spelling) is leaving it was made public yesterday and liverpool won't just sell to inter they will sell to the highest bidder prob barca as they have given up on cesc.

can we get back to rumours and not carry on this debate about lfc and there nonexistant bid and also why would fergie by ozil if he has stated that no players would be bought this window!(6)(24)

Cheers pete

i can promise you he won't be staying at werder bremen, the only way he'll stay is if he signs a contract extension, do u think they will miss out on 20m just so they can have him for another 12 months, i think not.

In response to:

"Michael Doyle has been removed from the squad list on the official Coventry City website (See for yourself, he is supposed to be No.8).

With the return to the club of Lee Carsley this could spell the end of Doyle's stint with the Sky Blues.


That simply isn't the case mate. Doyle was not on the list as his squad number hadnt been decided yet. Aidy Boothroyd has already pretty much confirmed that he sees doyle as part of his first team plans. The starting midfield 3 will be Carsley, Doyle and Gunnarrson with 2 wide men and Jutkiewicz up front. Though expect Marlon King to be offered a contract when he is released from prison. Also boothroyd has stated he would like a top centre half to partner Richard Wood though this isn't vital as they already have martin cranie who can play across the back 4. My thoughts for the first game are:

GK: Westwood
RB: Keogh
CB: Cranie
CB: Wood
LB: O'Halloran
CM: Carsley
CM: Gunnarrson
CM: Doyle
RW: Bell/Eastwood
LW: McSheffrey
CF: Jutkiewicz"

Thanks for confirming that he wasn't on the squad list, somebody told me that he WAS on there (and tbh i thought i'd seen him too).

As for your claim that Boothroyd will be starting Doyle, I beg to differ. He's said to Doyle that he wouldn't stand in his way if he wants to leave. Sammy Clingan is a far better player, and IMO he will definately start ahead of Doyle. We also have Isaac Osbourne & Gary Deegan (although currently out injured), as well as Martin Crainie who can cover DM. James McPake is the first choice centre back at City, with Wood his probable partner, with Grandison and Turner as backup (Although a new CB signing would provide competition). If Doyle does stay he will rarely feature and only be used to cover injuries.

Nottingham Forest

I hear from a reliable source, close to one of the board members that ND is fed up of BD and wants him out. But if BD is fired he is in line to get a massive payoff, so ND is making zero funds available to force BD out, however, BD is playing everything by the book creating a situation that doesn't look like it will be sorted any time soon.

Look at the evidence;

players on their way out, leaving a weaker squad
no sign of the players BD wants the most coming in
half hearted bids for second rate players such as Johnson.and failing!

Forest are my team, I've been employed by them in the past but there are dark days ahead.

I have a close relative in the scouting network of Man United and he tells me that they are bracing themselves for a whopper bid for Wayne Rooney from Real Madrid. Apparently Madrid believe that they can tempt Rooney with a massive salary and the promise of a new challenge.
United are desperate to pay off the massive debts that they have built up and although Gill has said funds are available, they are very limited which is why United have been so quiet in the transfer window. He also tells me that Furgeson intends to retire within the next two seasons and wants to build for the future by bringing in young talent (Hernandez and Smalling) so that his predessesor does not have a massive rebuild job with limited funds. The Transfer of Rooney would see a massive cash injection into United and would allow for the club to steady the ship and build for the future. The club have seen what has happend to Liverpool in terms of crippling debts and the unstability over recent years and want to build a business model similar to that of Arsenal.. The sale of Ronaldo last season and the imminent sale of Rooney for big money show the intentions of the club..

Have faith.. build for the long term instead of enjoying another few seasons of success and then crashing out..(21)(26)

Liverpool Latest:
As i just reported, Maxi Rodriguez is in Barcelona finalizing a return to Espanyol, the fee will be 5 million. Hodgson will now target Shaun Wright Phillips for a similar price.

The other outs will be:
Javier Mascherano to Inter Milan 30 Million
Charles Itandje Free
Emiliano Insua 5.5 Million Fiorentina
Philip Degen 1 Million Stuttgart
Yossi Benayoun 5.5 Million Chelsea
Albert Riera 4 Million Olympiakos
Maxi Rodriguez 5 million Espanyol
Total 51 Million

Ins will be:
Carlos Salcido 2.5 Million PSV Eindhoven
Maynor Figueroa 6 Million Wigan
Shaun WrightPhilips 5.5 Million Manchester City
Gareth Barry 8 Million Manchester City

That leaves roughly 30 Million to spend, Hodgson could spend all of it on a marquee signing such as Luis Suarez. 2 players at 15 Million such as Mesut Ozil and Kheidira. Or 3 10 million buys being Ever Banega, Conor Wickham, Carlton Cole(27)(22)

With Hargreaves out for a while again they will look at a DM and Rodwell is top of the wish list, ideal team as follows.

VDS
Rafeal, Rio, Vidic, Evra
Valencia, Rodwell, Fletcher, Nani
Ozil
Rooney

Subs Berbatov, Hernandez, Giggs, Scholes, Evans, O'shea and Kusacak

Gibson, Fabio, Welback, Macheada, Owen, Hargreaves, Neville, Anderson, Smalling, Obertan, Park, Browm all to be rotated during the season

Still one of the strongest squads in the league.

Rodwell sigh a new 5 year contract this summer so is not moving anywhere. And as for ozil He has said he's staing with his club untill his contract expires next year.

Why would Bellamy going to Celtic depend on Braga result as this does not change Celtics circumstances as Celtic will still not have qualified for the Champions League even if they do manage to win.

The only way i believe Celtic will make a big signing such as Bellamy is if they offload McGeady for big money and only one club is offering that at the moment and there is no chance he will go to Russia.(25)(13)

With Chamakh and already Koscielny signing there will be 3 new faces arriving at the Emirates before the Emirates Cup has started. AW wants to play his best side in the match with Celtic after the aftermath of Edurados dive in the Champions League Qualifier, with all the slating of Arsenal by Cetlic top dogs, AW wants to send out a big message to them.

Goalkeeper With Alumnia already a step out the door, AW will be stupid not to accept a bid from Osasuna for the poor GK. This leads the way for Maarten Stekelenburg from the cash stripped club Ajax.

CB With Campbell set to join new comers Newcastle and Everton staying strong over Jagielka it is sure AW will turn his attention to Per Mertesacker from Werder Bremen for a fee between £12£15 million.

ST With AW finally seeing Eduardo as a waste of space, leaving Arsenal with 4 out an out strikers, VP, Cham, Bend and Vela. He will now turn to Ipswich and England U17 striker Connor Wickham, to start playing with the likes of Wilshere, Randell and Watt. All the future of English football.

Team for next year;

Stekelenburg

Sagna Mertesacker Vermaelen Clichy

Song

Nasri Fabregas Arshavin

Chamakh Van Persie

Rest Of the Squad

Fabianski
Koscienly
Gibbs
Eboue

Hi guys

I tried posting on this site a few times before..
didn't go up..
anyways. i'm from South Africa.. and im a liverpool fan
here's my thoughts.
Masch was apparently leaving from last season when Rafa was manager. yes? So wats with this thing about him wanting soo badly to reunite with his "teacher".. bollocks i think..
i reckon if Rafa wants Masch.. we do a swap deal..
Masch = eto'o or Masch = milito + 5 mil
now theres a bit of business that could keep torres at the club.. and make us have quiet a significant threat in front of goal. with stevie back in midfield ofcourse..

Also..
one of you english newspapers(yeah what a joke they are..)
if South African newspapers printed a story based upon a "real or not" facebook ramble.. well, lets just leave it there..
importantly i read today(27/07) that maxi is deemed surplus to requirements.. are they being serious? maxi? who played in all of argentinas games at the w.c, granted they werent the best.. but he was a regular..

and finally.. one for you editor.. I was at the spain vs switzerland game in moses mabhida stadium.. now. seeing as how it was a historic game being the first time a team has lost their opening game and went on to win the world cup may those tickets be of any value. or am i being naive?

Manchester United Footall Club:

Mesut Ozil will be the final piece in the title jigsaw this season. SAF has sent his brother Martin to watch Ozil for a whole year and his holding out to get him on a free next summer but similar to Javier Hernandez, Mame Biram Diouf and Chris Smalling. Other teams are now aware of his talents so SAF will have to act. He will be purchased in the last week of the window. And he was in Manchester this week discussing terms with United's reps at Carrington. Ferguson and Gill will meet with Ozil's reps when they return from America. And the deal will be tied up soon. A fee of around £16m and wages around £45 000 a week. £20 000 more than his current deal at Werder Bremen.

Line Up for Next Season:
Van Der Sar
Rafael Evans Vidic Evra
Valencia Fletcher Ozil Nani
Rooney Berba or Hernandez

Hernandez #14
Smalling#12
Ozil #16

Carrick will leave to Aston Villa once Milner joins City.

To all Liverpool fans I have just been informed that Torrez will be handing in a transfer request when he returns from holliday. My source tells me that LFC will turn down his wishes and will refuse to negotiate with any club from the EPL. This is the reason why bookmakers have suspended betting on Torrez joining Chelsea. Broughton is not willing to sell Torrez to Chelsea because of his connections as a supporter. He knows it would be a pr dissaster for himself and he is going to leave the decission with the new owners when the takeover is completed.

first of all i recommend you learn how to spell Fernando TORRES.. proves how much you know about the game.

No one knows what is running through Torres's head at the moment, except himself.

lastly the only team who could possibly afford Torres who he is willing to join would be inter milan who after purchasing mascherano from Liverpool for approximately £25,000,000 will not pursue any more interest in Liverpool players as Rafael Benitez knows this would lose all the respect Liverpool fan's have for him.

Torres is STAYING for at least one more season until he makes his decision on if the club is moving forward.(28)(30)

"For all the people saying Ozil was at the airport last yesterday, you were all correct. My mate Garath brooks works for Style limosines Manchester, and was tasked with collecting Ozil and his representives and delivering them to Manchester uniteds training ground Carrington. He then dropped them 3.5 hours later at an undisclosed hotel. Looks like Fergie has his man. Parkey"

''If the destination was an undisclosed hotel, how would your mate know where to drop them off?? Utter crp.''

Dont be surprised if Arsenal sign Ozil. Everyone going on about Man Utd, but Arsenal have also been tracking him before Utd even heard of him and that's a fact. Nothing is known yet but we'l see wot happens coz it looks like fabregas is staying another year. If not Ozil, then i can see a DM coming in to give song some competetion. Also I see Akinfeev/Sketlenburg and Mertesacker/Subotic coming.

I think in total 3 more players will be signed.

Akinfeev or Sketelenburg
Mertesacker or Subotic
Ozil or De Jong(21)(15)

Celtic Rumour
======
If Bellemy or Keane havent been sold by City & Spurs then Celtic will try to get one of them on loan until January as neither will be included in the new 25 player squad list for the coming season.

Neil is still looking for a CB with Ramis, St. Ledger & Wilson all been linked.
Another left back will also be brought in.
David James will have talks although he might end up staying in the EPL

Despite bringing in 6 players we have only spend about £7.5M and brought in around £3.5M from sales, so expect a few pounds left for1 or 2 more players.

If McGeady is sold then expect Celtic to try and sign Keane or Bellemy on a full contract.(29)(39)

Plymouth new pitch 500k completed, guardian football story reveals top businessman investing in plymouth argyle, plymouth world cup city status confirmed, work starts next may on increaing capacity to 27,000 before second phase to 48,000, all of this would indicate significant investment is likely. Plymouth to win league one with peter reid at the helm. Any player with ambition must realise Plymouth argyles infrastructure is being totally revamped, I would expect with all of these plans either completed ie pitch, or in the pipeline for a significant amount to be spent on players, or whats the point in all of these other schemes.(19)(14)

Gerrard.
Maxi.

Are Liverpool only playing with 7 players this year??

Anyway on to Utd rumours, heard from our office in Manchester that Ozil is in advanced negotiations but is waiting to meet Fergie when they return from the states before finalising the deal. With Hargreaves out for a while again they will look at a DM and Rodwell is top of the wish list, ideal team as follows.

VDS
Rafeal, Rio, Vidic, Evra
Valencia, Rodwell, Fletcher, Nani
Ozil
Rooney

Subs Berbatov, Hernandez, Giggs, Scholes, Evans, O'shea and Kusacak

Gibson, Fabio, Welback, Macheada, Owen, Hargreaves, Neville, Anderson, Smalling, Obertan, Park, Browm all to be rotated during the season

Still one of the strongest squads in the league.

Rodwell sigh a new 5 year contract this summer so is not moving anywhere. And as for ozil He has said he's staing with his club untill his contract expires next year. Finally sir alex said he is happy with his squad ATM and has said not to expect muti million pounds signings!!

Bent sold for £10m your having a laugh right ?

Especially if Torres was sold for £60m Sunderland would know how desperate Liverpool were for a new cf and demand silly money i'm a toon fan and even i know that.

In the current climate he's worth something like £25m+ (look what Milners supposedley going for) or are you forgetting he was the third best striker n the PL last season, that means he scored more than Torres, Anelka, Tevez, Defoe, Adebyeor etc etc..(17)(29)

SOUTHAMPTON NEWS:

Nathan Tyson has signed for Saints from Nottingham Forest for a fee of around £545,000. He will wear the No. 8 shirt. Deal is set to be Released within the next few days.

Newcastle have been contacted by Southampton about getting Fraser Forster on a Loan untill January. But there is other teams interested including Wigan and West Brom.

The Rumours about Benjani and Darius Vassel joining Southampton are just Rubbish! Saints have not even contacted the players agents.

Owen Garvan could sign for Saints but Ipswich and Southampton can't seem to agree a fee from the Central Midfielder. A fee of around £600,000 was rejected and then Saints upped it to £700,000 but that also was rejected. Saints are thinking if they should persue the Deal and offer more or, look at other players.(10)(30)

More of a question than a rumour, Mascherano is set to leave for somewhere between 25 and 30 million, i believe we will replace him, but with who, Benega seems a good shout but that will still see a large amount of the transfer money remaining? We already have money to cover a LB signing, so who else are liverpool going to sign? 20 million could by a real quality striker but who do people see that being? Dzeko, huntelaar?

I honestly don't see us being in the market for Banega anymore, but considering he cost Valencia 18 million Euros in 2007 I can't see him costing any club £5£10 million as your '£20 million leftover from the sale of Masch for 2530 million' projection would suggest.(13)(17)

Real Madrid's Netherlands international Royston Drenthe is not on his way to Liverpool, despite reports citing a supposed Facebook page for the player suggesting a deal had been done. "I will soon be joining Liverpool FC. I hope I will have a good season, " read the page.

However, his agent told BBC Sport: "Royston does not have a Facebook page, a Twitter page or a MySpace page. We will be taking legal action against the person who set up this false Royston Drenthe account.

"Royston is definitely staying at Real Madrid. He is happy there, he has spoken to the club directors and is looking forward to the new season at the Bernabeu."

Inside at Forest

Signings very unlikely as there is a massive rift between the board and Billy Davies. The Board don't like his management style anymore and don't want him at the helm. Billy Davies has met with some potential signings but has been telling these players he does not know how long he will be at Nottingham Forest for.

The running of the club is a joke at the moment. There will be no Pratley, no Whittingham and very unlikely any significant signings will be made!(26)(26)

In response to:
Michael Doyle has been removed from the squad list on the official Coventry City website (See for yourself, he is supposed to be No.8).

With the return to the club of Lee Carsley this could spell the end of Doyle's stint with the Sky Blues.


That simply isn't the case mate. Doyle was not on the list as his squad number hadnt been decided yet. Aidy Boothroyd has already pretty much confirmed that he sees doyle as part of his first team plans. The starting midfield 3 will be Carsley, Doyle and Gunnarrson with 2 wide men and Jutkiewicz up front. Though expect Marlon King to be offered a contract when he is released from prison. Also boothroyd has stated he would like a top centre half to partner Richard Wood though this isn't vital as they already have martin cranie who can play across the back 4. My thoughts for the first game are:

GK: Westwood
RB: Keogh
CB: Cranie
CB: Wood
LB: O'Halloran
CM: Carsley
CM: Gunnarrson
CM: Doyle
RW: Bell/Eastwood
LW: McSheffrey
CF: Jutkiewicz(10)(6)

To the person who wrote this:
Nottingham Forest

I hear from a reliable source, close to one of the board members that ND is fed up of BD and wants him out. But if BD is fired he is in line to get a massive payoff, so ND is making zero funds available to force BD out, however, BD is playing everything by the book creating a situation that doesn't look like it will be sorted any time soon.

Look at the evidence;

players on their way out, leaving a weaker squad
no sign of the players BD wants the most coming in
half hearted bids for second rate players such as Johnson.and failing!

Forest are my team, I've been employed by them in the past but there are dark days ahead.

I'd have to say that based on the evidence this seems highly likely and very disappointing season ahead!(20)(19)

 

 27 Jul 2010 13:44:08
Now i expect to get slated for this as i'm a man utd fan but i see that liverpool are being linked with just about every left back in the world atm, now if you think about it do liverpool who haven't got cash to waste spend waste a decent amount of there budget on a new left back when you could just resign Fabio Aureilo who is a decent left back for free, bear in mind you have Agger and now young Danny Wilson who can also fill that roll as well then you'd have plenty of cover and you could use the money on other areas that need improving, just a thought. Also how much is Torres really worth? i'd say about the 5060M mark when fit, but how often is that? i've done some research and worked out that in 3 years at liverpool that he has played in just short of 50% of your games so if he's worth 5060m when fit but is only fit half the time does that not make his realistic value between 2530M. Now my point of this is that if you can get between 5060M for him then i'd sell him in a heart beat as long as you can reinvest the money recieved for 60M you could get Benzema and a top class midfilder or defender, also if you sell Masch as well as he doesn't seem to want to be there then you could add a further 20M+ to that amount, imagin if you sold Torres and Masch and bought Benzema Mata Cambiasso and Mexes woud you feel that would have a worst season than last? just a thought.

Now on to my team, i'm fairly confident that we'll see 1 more new face at Old Trafford this summer, i don't think Defour will be bid for until January at the earliest unless someone else tries to sign him but most likely next summer if Carrick doesn't prove himself this season. The Ninis deal has been put on ice until the out come of what happens with Ozil is decided, i expect to see one or the other in a untied shirt come the start of the season. The only other bit of info i've heard is that Gai Assulin is to have a trial with untied once their back from america and after his trial with Blackburn is finished.

Would like to know yur thoughts on this ed? and anyone elses thoughts would be gratefully reiceved.

Shappy {editor's note – Aurelio is the most injury prone player of recent years, he missed most of last season because he got hurt playing footie in the garden with his little kids! No point whatsoever in him returning, he gets injured for 3 months, plays badly for 3 or 4 matches after returning, starts the next game brilliantly and gets stretchered off after 20 min and misses 3 more months. I would rather see Mavinga given a chance personally.}(14)(24)

According to soccernet (espn) Sol Campbell will be joining Newcastle which means that Arsene Wenger will for sure sign at least one more defender and quickly. Because it seems unlikely that Everton will sell Jagielka, Per Mertesacker or Cristian Zapata seem to be the most probable options.

Roy Hodgson at present has £18m (£15m transfer budget and Riera money) to spend and hopes to complete the signings of Maynor Figueroa (£6.5m) AND Carlos Salcido (£2.75m) in the coming days having been quoted £12m for Wayne Bridge. Liverpool are set to bid £9m for Scott Parker, but West Ham want £15m. Salcido's arrival to cover LB and CB will allow for Kygriakos to leave after Liverpool received a £2m bid from Panathinaikos following failure to sign William Gallas.
Liverpool's recruitment drive will be ramped up further following the impending sale of Javier Mascherano to Inter Milan, Inter have bid £25m Liverpool want £35m, expect a £32m deal to be agreed next week. Liverpool are looking for the deal to be completed quickly in order to submit a £25m bid for James Milner! If Milner has left for City, Arda Turan, Ashley Young, Charles N'Zogbia are all wanted. IF Milner was to arrive would allow for Dirk Kuyt to leave after Liverpool have had interest from Juventus, Inter, and Bayern about the player IF a suitable offer is made.

To the Spurs and Arsenal fans claiming Ozil will sign for them. I can categorically tell you if anyone bids for Ozil Man Utd will match it and lets be honest if Utd come calling Ozil will end up at OT. He's been tracked since he was a youth at Bremen and Utd wold never let him sign for another EPL club. Thats the long and the short of it. The Ozil saga will go 1 of 3 ways 1. (most likely) he will end up at Utd, 2. He will stay at bremen and sign a new contract, 3. He will sign for Bayern and the only reason they will sign him is to stop anyone else getting him. And lets be honest they kinda have first dibs on any german youth.

|Liverpool News|

Press conference is under way. It's unlikely that any big news will be revealed, it's thought to be to introduce our new signings.

Mascherano is as good as gone, £25mil.

Figueroa will be our left back next season. Fee is expected to be £46mil.

Connor Wickham is being monitored but it is unlikely that Liverpool will meet Ipswich's valuation of around £8mil.

Torres is expected to stay, however if he does want to go it would not be to Chelsea. Man City would exceed any offer Chelsea make, and Liverpool will sell to the highest bidder.
If the Torres transfer goes through Liverpool would use the money to buy 2 quality strikers.

Drenthe, Tevez, VDV and Turan are all rumours and I would be very surprised if any go through.

Next season Liverpool will play Gerrard further back in CM, with Joe Cole playing off Torres (if he stays).(23)(13)

Heard from a good should that Carlos Tevez is looking to leave Man City He does not get on with Manchini and has had numerous disagreements with him over both team selection and his training methods, plus, he is very unhappy with the boss coming out and publicly stating he is looking to sign additional strikers.

Tevez left Old Trafford due to lack of game time, and he fears the same will happen this season with the expected rotation.

Destination Liverpool FC for £20m (due to a clause in his contract), which will be funded by the sale of Mascherano (who will go to inter for £27.5m).

Liverpool will also make cheeky offers for Wright Phillips, Ireland and Barry, one of which will be to 'buy' and the other 2 for a seasons loan (with the option to buy), which would suite both clubs at the moment, i.e. Liverpool short of funds, Man City need to trim their squad.

The signings will satisfy Torres the club is on the up and, once he is fit, the Tevez and Torres partnership should be awesome.

Watch this space Will be annouced by the end of this week.

I reported this just over a week ago. Tevez is on his way to Anfield. Source, the same Academy player who told me about Cole two weeks before it happened.(26)(20)

Surprise.. Nothing to do with LFC {editor's note – it has been explained a number of times on the site, but new people won't know that it was to do with his friends and not Liverpool FC.}(22)(11)

To the guy claiming ozel woild sign for man utd instead of spurs or the arse your prob right but i live in a village and very near a former spurs captain, its a small village where some players past and present live or have lived, but any way the former spurs csptain told us that ozel had asked klinsmanns advice about spurs and of course with jurgen being spurs has urged the german to sign!! btw this not a he will sign just a post that he has been advised to!(6)(9)

To all Liverpool fans I have just been informed that Torrez will be handing in a transfer request when he returns from holliday. My source tells me that LFC will turn down his wishes and will refuse to negotiate with any club from the EPL. This is the reason why bookmakers have suspended betting on Torrez joining Chelsea. Broughton is not willing to sell Torrez to Chelsea because of his connections as a supporter. He knows it would be a pr dissaster for himself and he is going to leave the decission with the new owners when the takeover is completed.(16)(33)

To the Spurs and Arsenal fans claiming Ozil will sign for them. I can categorically tell you if anyone bids for Ozil Man Utd will match it and lets be honest if Utd come calling Ozil will end up at OT. He's been tracked since he was a youth at Bremen and Utd wold never let him sign for another EPL club. Thats the long and the short of it. The Ozil saga will go 1 of 3 ways 1. (most likely) he will end up at Utd, 2. He will stay at bremen and sign a new contract, 3. He will sign for Bayern and the only reason they will sign him is to stop anyone else getting him. And lets be honest they kinda have first dibs on any german youth.

Just to remind you Ozil wasn't at bremen as a youth, he only signed for them in 2008(14)(15)

Celtic have taken French Defensive Midfielder, Peter Luccin on trial this week as is being reported in the Scottish newspapers today.

He's 32 years old and his most famous moment (to Celtic fans anyway) is when he spat on John Hartson in a match between Celtic and Celta Vigo during the UEFA Cup run in the 2002/03 season. So it's doubtful, should he sign, that he'll be made very welcome by a lot of the Hoops faithful.

Luccin has recently become a free agent after spending the last decade of his career playing in Spain for Athletico Madrid, Celta Vigo, Real Zaragoza and Racing Santander.

It's possible that Luccin will get a run out for Celtic during the Emirates Cup in London this coming weekend as is also reported in the newspapers.

In other Celtic news. Gary Hooper has signed and will wear the number 88 shirt. Bizarre choice but he chose it to represent the year of his birth (1988) and the fact he couldn't have number 10 as Fortune already has that squad number.

This means the magical number 7 shirt is still vacant however those still believing that Bellamy or Keane will be signed to fill that shirt may be disappointed. I think at best it'd be Liam Lawrence, should he sign for us.

Ref : Dreadful News

Sky Sports News last night reported on their tickertape that one of their sources has revealed Torres has told Liverpool he needs Champions league football, and will want to leave. It also said that most bookmakers have suspended all betting on Torres leaving, and that Chelsea was his desired destination. Just typed "football transfer odds" into google and checked out the betting claim, and every bookmaker you can think of has indeed suspended betting, and no odds are available. Skybet is the ONLY bookie still offering odds, and they are 13 he signs for Chelsea and 41 he is still at Anfield. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news as i am gutted.

Isn't Mancini also favourite to be 1st manager sacked this season, does this mean that all Man City fans should start holding their head in their hands as their manager is more or less out of the door before a ball has been kicked, based on your logic.

Bookies make money, lots of it, and so all they are doing by refusing to take bets is protecting their investment.(13)(23)

Apparently due to Robbie Keane's preseason performances he will not be sold to Aston Villa. But if Villa were able to offer Milner or Young in return then a deal may be done.

Roy Hodgeson has allowed Javier Mascherano to leave Liverpool. This is because Mascherano doesn't like playing in England and he believes that he won't win much at Liverpool.

According to reports Van Der Vaart was misquoted as saying that he would love to join Liverpool or Chelsea. Basically he means that he wouldn't mind joining them.

Mesut Ozil has been at the Manchester United training ground to agree terms to a 4 year contract deal. I was told that by a source and do not fully believe it. I wasn't informed of the price or wages just that he has signed for 4 years.

Arsenal have shown interest in Bastien Schweinsteiger as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas if he was to leave to Barcelona this season. If he leaves next season then Schweinsteiger would still be top of the replacements list.

If Liverpool were to lose Torres to either Man City or Chelsea or anyone else who were to land in the band wagon then their first target would be Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid (where they got Torres).

That's all I got, laters.

Adam le Fondre is a friend or a friend and I can confirm that he looks likely to join Charlton Athletic.
Rotherham had accepted a bid, which includes a player moving the other way. Adam isn't keen on moving to a bigger team and having to warm the bench, so Charlton would suit him as it's still a stepup, but he will be guaranteed first team football. He is also keen on moving closer to London.

Bid with what money? and what player? I hope he does join but can't see it happening, when is it likely to happen?
Ed any comments on the Le Fondre? {editor's note – I am surprised no Championship sides have snapped him up yet, he definitely looks to have the ability to play at that level. I thought Leeds would have chosen him as their replacement for Beckford, but that doesn't seem to be happening. I don't have any solid news on him, but I really don't understand why there aren't hundreds of rumours flying round about him.}(2)(16)

It now seems probable that Sol Campbell is going to Newcastle. This leaves Arsenal with only 3 CBs one with no EPL experience and another who played just one game last season. The rumours of approaches for Jagielka and Mexes will both founder on the suggested fees, (£1516M) that AW will not be prepared to pay.However, it does seem that Gallas is unable to find a new club and wants to stay in the EPL. Experienced, classy and a winner maybe time for AW to eat a bit of humble pie and give an over 30 year old a 2 year contract.
Unbeleivably, so rumours have it, 2 Spanish clubs are interested in buying Almunia:)))). What is AW waiting for. With a decent (not necessarily a good or great) goalkeeper Arsenal would have won the EPL last season. GKs cost AFC 18pts last season!
Those GKs being touted at the moment including Akinfeev and Stekelenberg (sp) are the quality GKs Aw should be looking at, not some 37 year old who is way past his best and whose best wasn't good enough anyway. Stop worrying about the young GKs who will be challenging for a 1st team spot in 23 years time worry about now. If the youngsters are good enough they will force their way in, and if not, we won't have wasted another 23 years on empty promises.(8)(5)

LIVERPOOL NEWSBAR
Javier Mascherano has told Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson that he wants to leave Anfield and get off to be with his ex manager Rafa at Inter.
Liverpool want £25mill.
His Liverpool teammate Dirk Kuyt is also reportedly on Inter's radar, but Massimo Moratti would apparently like to sell Douglas Maicon and Mario Balotelli before making a formal offer for both players.
so are Inter looking for a swap deal ??

The funny thing is Inter believe they can do a deal for the Anfield duo for as little as 30m.

furthermore..PSV are keen to cash in on Salcido,
The PSV leftback or midfielder is high on their wanted list and boss Roy Hodgson is set to launch a £3million raid for the 30yearold what a great player for that priceLiverpool are believed to be monitoring Maynor Figueroa, Wigan's leftback. The 27 yearold, who has spent two seasons at the DW Stadium, is expected to leave for around £6

Also on Roys radar are more english Premier players from the Man Citeh boys

Ed please put this out there.Been looking over the net about Temasek Holdings.Looks like whoever linked this yesterday on here may have been talking sense.

On July 8, Temasek reported a 42% full recovery of its portfolio to S$186bn (US$134bn), but net profit fell 26% to S$4.6 billion. S$10 billion new investments were made over the year, with the most recent in resources and energy sectors.
.
SingBridge International was established to develop integrated townships and largescale projects in Asia.

Agreed fee with one of the top football clubs in the world for takeover. It is anticipated this takeover will be complete early august.

Now the bottom bit is interesting as along with this, they have a large stake in Standard Chartered LFC'S SPONSOR

Jigsaw and pieces coming together? Also this would help our expansion into Asia.

I hear from a reliable source, close to one of the board members that ND is fed up of BD and wants him out. But if BD is fired he is in line to get a massive payoff, so ND is making zero funds available to force BD out, however, BD is playing everything by the book creating a situation that doesn't look like it will be sorted any time soon.

Look at the evidence;

players on their way out, leaving a weaker squad

Many years ago I used to work for The Sun newspaper (i know, i know please forgive me). However, I used to get the occasional bit of transfer news ahead of time and being a LFC supporter I rang an old friend of mine last night who still works there. He told me the following:
There are 3 good offers on the table for the club, unfortunately the one that everyone involved at the club thinks is the best is the lowest so some strong decisions have to be made soon.
Torres will only leave the club to go back to Spain and Barcelona but with their financial problems at the moment don't expect a bid this transfer window so whatever Chelsea & Man City do expect Torres to start the season at Anfield.
Mascherano did indeed ask to leave the club yesterday and was told if someone matches the clubs evaluation of him he can go.
The club are looking at 23 more players, a leftback, a striker and now a holding midfielder.
Hodgson is only looking at players with Premier League experience as he feels the club can not give someone time to adapt (Jovanovic deal was done before he arrived).
The first 2 names mentioned to me by my friend were not new ones Figueroa & Scharner but the striker was: Santa Cruz!
Apparently, Hodgson has made a very low first offer due to the players injurys and the fact that City have to offload players due to their massive incomings this close season.
I suppose we'll have to wait and see but this is what I was told.
Cheers
PS
Ed anything to add on the Santa Cruz story? {editor's note the only thing I have to add is, why would someone working for the Sn have any kind of inside track at Liverpool? They are still banned from the ground and persona non grata amongst all employees.}Dont believe this Liverpool hate the Sun.(12)(25)

It's read that Sunderland have paid big money for a right back that could pave the way for Hutton to come on loan to rangers with Whitaker moving further forward. I think the gattuso rumour is realistic don't think money would be the defining issue as he's looking for a golden from Milan. These Pair benalouane would do for me. Still think the front man and wide player will be players not mentioned so far.

Al

Alan Hutton is a spurs player mate, so i doubt Sunderland buying a RB would affect his career!
Steg

The reason this would effect Hutton would be Tottenham wanting rid of him and Sunderland looked like the only interested part..therefore theres been many rumours for a return to ibrox for him. Not saying it will happen, but that's probably the reason the first guy mentioned it, start thinkin eh!(12)(14)

Met a famous ex red at a function last night.

He is no longer employed by the club but is close to people who are.

To be fair to him, he kept his cards close to his chest in terms of what he would say.

The one thing he did confirm (and I notice that this has been mentioned in a couple of previous posts), is that both City and Chelsea have been 'Tapping' Torres up while he has been on holiday / at World Cup.

Liverpool are furious over the conduct of both clubs and intend to report them both to the FA (for what that is worth !!)

The person I spoke to also said that the feeling he got from the club was that Torres would prefer to stay BUT he was still looking for further proof from the club that they can actually get back into top four.

Apparently, he his "OK" with the idea of missing out on the champ league as a "one off". But can't accept the thought that it would become a regular occurance.(22)(16)

To the person who asked whether anyone knew much about Rangers targets Mphela and Khumalo, I'm South African and can tell you that Mphela is a striker, about 25 years old and plays in SA for Mamelodi Sundowns. Although I would love to see him succeed in the UK, and he was top scorer in the SA league last season, I feel he may not be that diamond in the rough. He previously played for a couple of clubs in France, without much success. Khumalo plays in SA for Supersport United. I believe Khumalo is reaching the top of his game. I think he could be a real find. Spurs are also reported to be interested, so as a Spurs fan, I hope they sign him.(23)(14)

Steve and Ed discussed Temasek Holdings at 27 Jul 2010 08:15:02:

"Ed please put this out there.Been looking over the net about Temasek Holdings."

It appears that you looked at a vandalised Wikipedia page.

"Looks like whoever linked this yesterday on here may have been talking sense."

I would guess that they vandalised the Wikipedia page.

" Agreed fee with one of the top football clubs in the world for takeover. It is anticipated this takeover will be complete early august."

This is the vandalised section of the Wikipedia page.

I am not suggesting that Temasek Holdings are not a potential purchaser of the club, but I am saying that Wikipedia is not a useful point of reference.

Having just come across this site i am a fan, what i also think is the site is a rumour mongers dream, very few people know who is singing for who in the clock and dagger footballing world. many agents start most of the rumours to unsettle the players as they get rich quick off the back of the transfers.and the drenthe to liverpool is unrealistic at best, utd were mooted about him few years back, how come they not mentioned?

its intresting to read bout masch off to inter for the right price is good for lfc roy will surely buy well off the supposed 20+ , is this dependant on them getting rid of baletti to man city? ironic then as we all dispise/jealous of city's spending power that a very good sale for erbuilding providing roy gets the cash is on city's ludicrus circus in transfer market, below is wot i think will happen:

lfc will put more emphasis on british players like, steven darby, jay spearing, martin kelly, danny wilson and jack robinson to come through in carling cup and fill 2nd choice positions for 1st team players under roy, and i am very happy about that!

As for rangers transfer tagets they are gattuso who has a verbal agreement with smith and isn't botherd about the wages on offer as he allready has a few quid in the bank. bamba of hibs for £1mill. smith of newcastle for £1.5mill. obertan loan tom clevarley (spelling) loan lee martin who we had on loan a few seasons ago for 500k and maybe beattie but that will be it at a push.

as for celtic last a herad they wer after raul keane bellamy ronaldinho kaka and any other player they think deserves there number 7 shirt but to be more serious heard a sneaky rummor that the celts are after joe hart on loan from man city till jan with view to buying for £4mill

{editor's note it is weird how this story has suddenly taken off, on an obviously fake fb page as well. Shows how lazy journos are that none of them thought to check it out and see how obviously fake it is.}

I think it's probably because he is a fairly competent leftsided player who can play full back, wing back, or cover as winger on either flank. He is semiavailable and Liverpool have what will shortly become a desperate need for at least one left back and available ones within budget are in short supply.

Throw in his links to Babel and Purslow's recent 'jolly' to Espana and you have very nearly a square peg in a square hole.

To the Spurs and Arsenal fans claiming Ozil will sign for them. I can categorically tell you if anyone bids for Ozil Man Utd will match it and lets be honest if Utd come calling Ozil will end up at OT. He's been tracked since he was a youth at Bremen and Utd wold never let him sign for another EPL club. Thats the long and the short of it. The Ozil saga will go 1 of 3 ways 1. (most likely) he will end up at Utd, 2. He will stay at bremen and sign a new contract, 3. He will sign for Bayern and the only reason they will sign him is to stop anyone else getting him. And lets be honest they kinda have first dibs on any german youth.(24)(20)

Site update as of 3am UK time reads:

"WALTER SMITH has revealed that Rangers are interested in two of South Africa's World Cup stars.

The Ibrox manager is interested in signing Bafana Bafana pair Katlego Mphela and Bongani Khumalo."

Anyone know much about these players or how much they would cost?

Cheers, Wilbert.

Dont know much about Khumalo but Mphela was the top scorer in the PSL, was named player of the year, has scored 13 golas in 30odd international appearances and had his goal at the confederations cup against spain voed as one of the best of the tourny by fifa. Must be not bad, n better than the septics signing of Murphy in any case.

Can't see us being linked with them unless their within our price range but I've heard that between 2.54 million for both, plus Champions league football should be able to lure them to Ibrox.(29)(18)

To all at lfc, the bookies have stopped taking bets on a new arrival in london, guess who.

Which bookies? I think you'll find that Skybet love to drum up a bit of headline to get some business, but most of the bookies can't be bothered to involve themselves in a market like this. Paddy Power might give it a go sometimes. For a more accurate assessment have a look at Betfair. The odds there indicate that it is almost an equal chance of Torres staying or leaving. I wouldn't read too much into Skybet. They priced Fabregas at 1/20 to go to Barcelona, now he's 6/4 and odds on to stay at Arsenal.
I would also suggest that 1/3 for Chelsea is very poor value. If Torres does indicate that he wants to go and Chelsea make an offer you can guarantee that Man City will offer more. Why then should Liverpool accept Chelsea's lower bid? If he does come on the market surely Man City would be favourites because Liverpool would want maximum fee. All in all Chelsea fans, I think you've got no chance of signing him!(21)(24)

Heard from a good should that Carlos Tevez is looking to leave Man City He does not get on with Manchini and has had numerous disagreements with him over both team selection and his training methods, plus, he is very unhappy with the boss coming out and publicly stating he is looking to sign additional strikers.

Tevez left Old Trafford due to lack of game time, and he fears the same will happen this season with the expected rotation.

Destination Liverpool FC for £20m (due to a clause in his contract), which will be funded by the sale of Mascherano (who will go to inter for £27.5m).

Liverpool will also make cheeky offers for Wright Phillips, Ireland and Barry, one of which will be to 'buy' and the other 2 for a seasons loan (with the option to buy), which would suite both clubs at the moment, i.e. Liverpool short of funds, Man City need to trim their squad.

The signings will satisfy Torres the club is on the up and, once he is fit, the Tevez and Torres partnership should be awesome.

Having already brought in 6 players this summer Gary McSheffrey, Stephen O'Halloran, Roy O'Donovan, Richard Keogh, Lee Carsley and Lukas Jutkiewicz Aidy Boothroyd has set his sights on 3 more players to complete the squad. A deal for young Australian keeper Laurence Thomas is already in the pipeline, which leaves a central defender, winger and striker on the list.
Aidy is looking for an 'experienced leader' in defence believed to be USA International Jay Demerit, who is available on a free transfer after leaving Watford.
Targets for the wing are 22 Year Old German, Stefan Aigner, who plays for 1860 Munich and Danny Green of Dagenham & Redbridge.
Up front, Marlon King is set to offered a 1 year contract upon his release from prison. Boothroyd believes that, having previously worked with King at Watford, he can be the man to tame him. Other targets include James Beattie (although wage demands mean this deal is unlikely) and a young Premiership loanee understood to be Fabio Borini of Chelsea.

Looks like it could be an exciting season ahead for the Sky Blues.(13)(19)

 

 27 Jul 2010 10:32:03
This one is confirmed on www.rangers.co.uk

Rangers are in for Bongani Khumalo & Katlego Mphela, both made big impacts for South Africa at the world cup and by the sounds of things; these two players could be moving to Ibrox for a combined fee of around £2 Million. Contact has been made with the players clubs, so these transfers look like the first confirmed attempts to sign players by Wattie that might actually go through :D

I will admit that I did not see much of Khumalo at the World Cup, but Mphela looked like a decent player and plenty of pace..I personally wouldn't mind these signatures, but we still need one or two good wide midfielders to give us a boost.(26)(22)

Not a concrete rumour or anything, more an observation re. Manchester United.

Fergie has said he has a decision to make with regards to one or two players and the 25 man squad for the Premier League.

Having looked at the United squad, I guarantee that every single player employed at United would be available for selection in the premier league if fit. 25 man 'senior' squad inclusive of 12 home grown players added to by a bunch of young players such as Kiko, Raf, Fabio, Obertan etc (who were 20 or younger on Jan 1st 2010 so according to the new rules would not need to be registered in order to play)

So, the only reason to leave out 1 or 2 players from the squad would be because of a new player (or two) being brought in (who is over the age of 21 as of Jan 1st)

Maybe it means nothing and Fergie is simply confused (he is old!) but based on the rules, and the squad as it currently is there is no reason to leave a single player out of the squad, none at all.(16)(18)

Dreadful News

Sky Sports News last night reported on their tickertape that one of their sources has revealed Torres has told Liverpool he needs Champions league football, and will want to leave. It also said that most bookmakers have suspended all betting on Torres leaving, and that Chelsea was his desired destination. Just typed "football transfer odds" into google and checked out the betting claim, and every bookmaker you can think of has indeed suspended betting, and no odds are available. Skybet is the ONLY bookie still offering odds, and they are 13 he signs for Chelsea and 41 he is still at Anfield. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news as i am gutted.(20)(31)

Hi all,

Everything has gone quiet at LFC for the moment. Why? Well, Hodgson was unsure as to whether he could convince Mascherano to stay and now. its evident that he will leave, if sold for the right price it will allow RH to exercise the funds for a few players.. Starting with Arda Turan. Signing Turan will allow either Babel or Kuyt to be used solely as strikers. Also Royston Drenthe is just a rumour at present, do not believe all this rubbish about him being qouted saying he will join LFC. My source has not relayed anything to me about him joining the club. I have no takeover news, just know that Torres will be staying, for one more year atleast. Also, Milner has not sad anythiign about wanting to move to City or Spurs because he is holding out for a move to Liverpool, if it will at all be possible. RH saw that when Benitez tried to bully Villa into selling Barry he got nowhere, so that's why RH has not cme out and said anything about Milner. Watch this space.(27)(31)

The offer that is viable isn't from a shekih or anyone from Asia. from the name on certain docs we have here we would have a guess at the Russian area or surrounding countries. But as i said yesterday the club arent going to have man city cash. This is a long term investment I.E they want to see a return on there investment.(11)(18)

Ed, could you tell me if there is any Sunderland news? {editor's note – I haven't heard anything new mate. If Alonso was about he would have a better idea, he is definitely a person who posts stuff worth listening, he was the only person (and that includes newspapers etc) that got one of the Sunderland signings before it was officially announced.}(4)(10)

Dear Editor, Reports in certain northeast papers have suggested Sunderland have resigned John Mensah on a season long loan but neither the club or any other madia sources have confirmed this. Have you heard anything or any other strong transfer links? {editor's note – I haven't heard anything, or read anything for that matter, about it other than the local papers up there.}(7)(7)

Connor Wickham to Join Liverpool.

Wickham, Shelvey, Wilson, Wisdom the future of liverpool.

as for first team players, Ngog will be sold. kuyt, jovanovic will play back up striker when torres out. babel will be tried at different positions by ROY and see if he can succeed at anyone. otherwise he will be sold in the hanuary window. pacheco will be regularly playing in the subs to show he can push for a first team place.

figuera and jansen both will be bought. figuera first and jansen later when mascherano is sold. no VDV, drenthe. gerrard rill move to CM with lucas or aquilani and spearing will get chances. after mascheranos sale, a bid for banega, cambiasso, silva may be considered.

no new strikers at this moment for first team. may be gervinho if money remains after LB and CM has been sorted out.(20)(21)

 

 27 Jul 2010 08:36:33
I have been informed by a reliable source that Fernando Torres is being lined up by Chelsea as their number 1 summer target. Javier Mascherano will moved to Inter Milan to link up with former boss Rafa Benitez. Also Fulham will be pulling out all the stops to get Mark Hughes in at the helm at Craven Cottage. Expect these three deals to materialise in the coming weeks.. and when they happen, remember my name..

ARSENAL
KEEPER ~ Looks like Almunia to a spanish club, his motherinlaw died in a car crash in Spain around the start of last season, which was followed by a series of mysterious absences due to injury. I assume he wants to return to Spain for family reasons. I expect Arsenal to then tie up Schwarzer. The reasoning behing signing Scwwazer is that he will play for a 2 or 3 seasons, without hindering the progress of Fabianski, Mannone or the highly rated Szczesny.
CENTRAL DEFENDER ~ Campbell looks a strong possibility to resign for a further 12 months, if not a purchase will be made. In the mean time Nordtveit & Bartley are progressing through to the first team squad
FABREGAS ~ Only if he departs will a replacement even be considered, although I doubt it as Arsenal have a glut of midfield players, such as Arshavin, Nasri, Walcott, Abu Diaby, Denilsen, Ramsey, Rosicky, Song & Wilshere.
OTHER SIGNING ~ Any top quality youngsters that Wenger finds. Bearing in mind the new regulations allow as many under 21's can be made in addition to the 25 'overage' players. Also, young foreign players who serve 3 years before they are 21 at English or Welsh clubs, will ultimately qualify as one of the compulsory 8 'English' players.
It looks like Wengers planning has left Arsenal in an excellent position to comply with the regulations, whilst the finances are in great shape. Other clubs such as Man City, will have the problem of reducing their squads to comply with the regulations.(24)(22)

 

 27 Jul 2010 08:47:04
Just seen the post 'Barry to Liverpool' and can confirm it is 100% true Barry has held talks with the management team at City, to gain reassurance that he will be a first team regular, but they have been unable to make any promises and, at 29yrs old, he is looking to play regularly and win something !!

With Masch looking set to leave, Hodgson has a space for a holding midfielder and his first choice, Scott Parker, has been priced out of a move (West Ham want a min of £15m), therefore will turn to Barry, who he feels he can get of c£7m.

Not sure how it will go down with the fans due to last years fun and games, but I personally feel he could prove to be a good 'steady' signining, who can do a job in central midfield or anywhere down to left (including left back if required) and steady, experienced players are what we need at the moment.

Also expect an offer for Richards (£8m) and Ireland (£5m cheap, after a fall out with his new boss).(19)(28)

It's read that Sunderland have paid big money for a right back that could pave the way for Hutton to come on loan to rangers with Whitaker moving further forward. I think the gattuso rumour is realistic don't think money would be the defining issue as he's looking for a golden from Milan. These Pair benalouane would do for me. Still think the front man and wide player will be players not mentioned so far.

Ed please put this out there.Been looking over the net about Temasek Holdings.Looks like whoever linked this yesterday on here may have been talking sense.

On July 8, Temasek reported a 42% full recovery of its portfolio to S$186bn (US$134bn), but net profit fell 26% to S$4.6 billion. S$10 billion new investments were made over the year, with the most recent in resources and energy sectors.
.
SingBridge International was established to develop integrated townships and largescale projects in Asia.

Agreed fee with one of the top football clubs in the world for takeover. It is anticipated this takeover will be complete early august.

Now the bottom bit is interesting as along with this, they have a large stake in Standard Chartered LFC'S SPONSOR

Jigsaw and pieces coming together? Also this would help our expansion into Asia..

As i reported a couple of weeks ago Liverpool look set to offer 8.5m for Conner Wickham from Ipswich. Hodgeson is a keen admirer and has already had a bid rejected with wickhams reps saying they will wait it out until a top six side come in. Spurs have also had a bid rejected thought to be in the rejion of 6.5m. Ed im sure you can back up that i have said this a couple of times and got bad feedback but it looks like i could be right. i did also say in the same post that we would enquire about the availability of sergio Augero but only if the take over is complete before the window closes.

Furthermore United to win the race to sign Ozil in a deal rumured to be 15m.

Celtic to sign bellemy on loan for a season.

My friend works for a news paper and i know they pack them full of lies but he has been right in the past. obviously this may not happen but hay its a rumours site.

Ed: Any updates on the leftback situation i keep geting conflicting reports about Jansenm, Figureoa and Derente.

I don't beleive the Derente rumour as there are over 17 pages on facebook for him also i think we should sign both Jansen and Figureoa.

YNWA
Quigz23 {editor's note – I was told that Wickham was going nowhere this summer, unless the deal was a buy and loan back arrangement for a season. I don't believe the Drenthe rumours either, but the club has been negotiating over 3 left backs, this is why there is so much confusion. The intention is to buy just one of those 3, but no final decision has actually been made until it is known exactly what the players demands are as well as the transfer fee. Roy is keeping his cards close to his chest, which is why there is so much guesswork about – people don't know for sure and are just making educated guesses. Figueroa is the favourite because of a report in his homeland that was translated and says he is close to joining Liverpool. But I believe that to be a case of his agent trying to get him a big move more than one about to be sealed.}(18)(27)

For all the people saying Ozil was at the airport last yesterday, you were all correct. My mate Garath brooks works for Style limosines Manchester, and was tasked with collecting Ozil and his representives and delivering them to Manchester uniteds training ground Carrington. He then dropped them 3.5 hours later at an undisclosed hotel. Looks like Fergie has his man,

Many years ago I used to work for The Sun newspaper (i know, i know please forgive me). However, I used to get the occasional bit of transfer news ahead of time and being a LFC supporter I rang an old friend of mine last night who still works there. He told me the following:
There are 3 good offers on the table for the club, unfortunately the one that everyone involved at the club thinks is the best is the lowest so some strong decisions have to be made soon.
Torres will only leave the club to go back to Spain and Barcelona but with their financial problems at the moment don't expect a bid this transfer window so whatever Chelsea & Man City do expect Torres to start the season at Anfield.
Mascherano did indeed ask to leave the club yesterday and was told if someone matches the clubs evaluation of him he can go.
The club are looking at 23 more players, a leftback, a striker and now a holding midfielder.
Hodgson is only looking at players with Premier League experience as he feels the club can not give someone time to adapt (Jovanovic deal was done before he arrived).
The first 2 names mentioned to me by my friend were not new ones Figueroa & Scharner but the striker was: Santa Cruz!
Apparently, Hodgson has made a very low first offer due to the players injurys and the fact that City have to offload players due to their massive incomings this close season.
I suppose we'll have to wait and see but this is what I was told.
Cheers
PS
Ed anything to add on the Santa Cruz story? {editor's note – the only thing I have to add is, why would someone working for the Sn have any kind of inside track at Liverpool? They are still banned from the ground and persona non grata amongst all employees.}(14)(26)

Gers also holding talks with striker Nikica Jelavic of Rapid Vienna, as reported yesterday by someone else on here.
These players might not be superstars but would be good in the SPL. With the young guns like Fleck, Little, Shinnie, Loy, Adam, Wylde, Ness, Campbell and Kind Bendikson some of whom are in there 20s and should be pushing for first team, and 1 or 2 loans Rangers should be fine(this year) even if we lose bougy and miller

leroy lita ??? not heard anything about him coming


Nile ranger , grayson was going to not bring in another sticker but in the circumstances that has happens with suspensions and injuries grayson has been forced to enter the market for another striker this move will not be permanent only on loan until January .

these signings will be done by next week


Leeds are still also in the market for more midfielders and and defenders as grayson believes his main target is to survive the drop . but players will only be coming in on loan or cheap from league one and two teams .

Some PNE transfer news

Darren is still after 4 players. He is after a CB/LB, CDM, Winger, and a quick striker to play with hayes.

CB/LB the dickinson deal looks dead in the water. he is looking at richie de leat at man utd he can play anywhere in the defence.

CDM he may play billy jones or callum davidson in this position but he is looking at a tough tackling midfielder the offer for nicky butt is still on the table but he is contemplating a deal from blackpool.

The other option is darrel russell who is on a free

Winger the 1st option is matt philips before our transfer embargo we were close to a deal of around 400K but now wycombe want more money for him

Striker the big rumour is a 17yr old lad called tom bradshaw from shrewsbury around 400K personally never heard of him and a lot of money for a 17yr old (ED do you know anything about the lad) {editor's note – all I know is that they see him at Shrewsbury as a 'wunderkind' so to speak. I really don't think he will be leaving for less than a mill, not the way they talk about him.}(4)(16)

Hi ED
Lets put an end to the Torres scenario
I have confirmed from a source in LFC club that Torres has confirmed his stay at the anfield.It will be announced as soon as he returns from holidays.
For the people who say torres is going to Chelsea or man city or barca.
Barca has already signed villa, so the don't want torres.
Chelsea is not interested in torres.
and for the fact of man city why would torres go there , they can only provide better wage to torres, which he is not greeady for. he don't want money, he wants good club and good players around him and liverpool is the place where we have it all.

And there will be a surprise signing in a week or so, it is said to be a big one.(maybe Peter Crouch)

Paul Sharner has signed a 3 year contract with liverpool at a wage of 25k pound per week. As he being a FREE AGENT after his contract expired with wigan on 30 june.He is said to have a great relations with Roy and is very close to him.his signing will be anounced after the Europa league matches.

Any news on F.Ribery any1 last season he was a top entity even in the jan and now no1 wants the player cuz he didn't perform in the worldcup.. Well he was one time tipped better then CESC well he is obviously not a better player then Fabregas anyways any transfer news on Ribery please post how about u ed.
On to arsenal rumours, well 16m pound bid for jagielka but everton will reject the offer as they are now done with the transfer window. For sure Mertesacker coming Sol Campbell will sign for another year too and nothing much in the midfield or attack. maybe another defensive player but i don't think so. Wilshere will not go onl loan as wenger was impressed how he featured with aggressive bolton side and so will be used in the first team. Gallas and silvestre out. For goal Keepers Schwarzer if signed will only be a short term solution but the one i am going for is Igor Akinfeev he will be bought for about 8m pounds or Sketelenburg for 5m pounds. Almunia to leave Fabianski to go on loan(maybe). This would be pretty much it for wenger this tranfer window. So our team should look like this:

Igor
Sagna Mertesacker Vermealen Clichy
Song
Nasri Fabregas Arshavin
Chamakh VanPersie

Also if wenger thinks he needs more defensive Jan Vaghten(spelling) from Ajax maybe bought also.

Future {editor's note – Ribery has off the pitch troubles, including an under age prostitute scandal, to deal with, that is why no one is rushing to try and buy him.}(7)(23)

If the press confernece does take place 2moro here's what i reckon will happen, Roy will give a quick brief on his preperation for the game on Thursday, a quick injury update, and the progress he has made so far in his short time within the club.
Expect questions to be fired at him about the usual b.s, like Torres' future, sale of the club and so on, but all these questions will be brushed aside as usual.

All the rumours of Torres leaving Anfield are just that ..Rumours. I don't know where Talksport got their information but trust me it's not true. Torres is currently on holiday in Madrid and has yet to decide about his future although I am confident he will be a Liverpool player next season.

Mascherano will be leaving however and was promised by the board last year that he could move this Summer, as soon as Inter sell Balotelli to City Rafa will make the move. Not sure yet whether Barca will also try and sign him but I doubt it as they are still courting Fabregas.
With the money from the Mascherano sale I can confirm that Hodgson will bring the following players:

Maynor Figuerora (Deal almost complete, £5.5M)
Royston Drenthe (Loan deal)
Ever Banega (Will cost around £8M)
Arda Turan (£9M plus £2M in add ons should LFC finish within the top 4)

Regarding all the bougherra speculation

alot of pepole on hear seem to be saying he is being sold to this club and that club for around the £5mill mark.

lets put it this way if john terry is worth 30mill and ferdiand is worth 20mill and all the other overrated english defenders are so so super then bougherra must be worth at least £10mill after all he did keep the amazeing superstar wayne rooney in his back pocket for the entire game at the world cup.

as for rangers transfer tagets they are gattuso who has a verbal agreement with smith and isn't botherd about the wages on offer as he allready has a few quid in the bank. bamba of hibs for £1mill. smith of newcastle for £1.5mill. obertan loan tom clevarley (spelling) loan lee martin who we had on loan a few seasons ago for 500k and maybe beattie but that will be it at a push.

as for celtic last a herad they wer after raul keane bellamy ronaldinho kaka and any other player they think deserves there number 7 shirt but to be more serious heard a sneaky rummor that the celts are after joe hart on loan from man city till jan with view to buying for £4mill

Torres won't be leaving liverpool for chelsea.

And the following people for man city will have leave because they have 37 players and they need to cut it down to 25 ( SWP, Bridge, Lescott, De Jong, Bellamy & Ireland).

Watch all of these come true.(29)(32)

The futures looking that little bit brighter for celtic at the moment and i can confirm to the delight of the celtic supporters that when milner is sold to city(100% happning matter of time) mc geady will go to villa 9m(100% matter of time) celtic will buy craig bellamy outrught hence the reason there has been no more activity surrounding bellamys future as he is waiting to speak to celtic."

check skysports m8, seems villa have decided to have a look elsewhere, moscow his only option n that aint gona happen. Either the price for him drops to attract other clubs (B'ham for example) or he's stayin where he is. What does this mean for celtics spending? I have a feeling uz were expectin to make this money to cover recent deals and future ones. Champ league is a must now. Hope this puts an end to the bellamy n keane rumours

It's read that Sunderland have paid big money for a right back that could pave the way for Hutton to come on loan to rangers with Whitaker moving further forward. I think the gattuso rumour is realistic don't think money would be the defining issue as he's looking for a golden from Milan. These Pair benalouane would do for me. Still think the front man and wide player will be players not mentioned so far.

The zil to Tottenham rumour has something to it. Expect to see Spurs make a big signing in the next two weeks. Rememebr Redknapp saying he didn't think Cole wud join, then when he signed for Liverpool he claimed he thought Cole had agreed to join Tottenham a month back. The Fabiano interest is a clever smoke screen as he denies interest in Milner. Expect the big signing at Tottenham soon, with zil, Milner, and Arda Turan the big 3, with bellamy and richards possible. Also expect Pletikosa to sign on a season long loan as GK cover.

Hey ed any info on if super ally's twitter is real or fake. personally i think its fake but he is saying obertan will be allowed to move to rangers on loan though obertan is in the states. cheers benny bear {editor's note it is fake, there are hundreds of fake twitter accounts claiming to be famous people. There used to be one claiming to be Lucas which was the funniest one I have ever seen. It used to have him fighting with Kuyt for Rafa's attention and some of the stuff it said had me laughing so hard my ribs hurt.}

It is definatly fake because earlier this was one of the tweets "Off to see the Dr Kennedy today.Got a pain in my groin.Not sure what the problem is. Feels like a twisted testicle.Will keep you all posted." this was another " Bougherra is in talks with Newcastle United at the moment. Possible £500,000 transfer".

Just a couple of points.

first point

all this talk about torres leaving is crap he is on holiday for 3 weeks so won't be back til the 2nd of august.

second point

as for the press conference tomorrow at anfield it is to unveil the new players we have signed as know of them have offically been in front of the papers.

third point

all the takeover talks are way off the mark as it will not be announced till 12th of september.

fouth point

liverpool will sign 3 senior players for the squad now and 2 for future years.(70)(62)

Liverpool News.

Maynor Figueroa now looks certain to complete a move to Anfield by the weekend. I have been informed from my source that he will travel to Melwood either on Friday or Saturday to undergo a medical ahead of a initial £5million fee, rising to £6.25million depending on appearances and achievements while at Liverpool. He will wear the number 6 jersey and will sign a 3 year contract with an option of another year. Hodgson was impressed by Figueroa's strength, pace, attacking/crossing ability and defensive positioning since he signed for Wigan and is keen to add this to the left side of the team as both Aurelio and Insua both generally lacked the strength and positioning needed to be a top flight wing back.
No second choice left back will be signed as if needed, Daniel Agger will play as an emergency left back as he did for a couple of games last season or Glen Johnson and Stephen Darby may step in if needed. Royston Drenthe rumours are rubbish.

Javier Mascherano returned to Melwood today (Monday) with one of his representitives and met with Roy Hodgson for the first time. He apologised for ignoring Hodgson's calls and texts as he just wanted to take all the focus off Liverpool and seriously consider his future. He has been in constant contact with Rafa Benitez and has been told to hand in a written transfer request which will be accepted and Liverpool will sell if a substantial offer from either Inter or Barcelona comes in. They are looking for around £25million MINIMUM for Mascherano. Talks were conducted in a friendly manner and there will be no hard feelings between player and club. I have been told a direct replacement will not be bought as Hodgson would prefer to keep the money and sign 2/3 good quality players out of it to strengthen other areas.

Now, on to Fernando Torres. People are reading too much into the fact that he is yet to come out and commit his future to the club. Steven Gerrard didn't do that until he returned from holiday and Fernando is not due back yet. He has met Christian Purslow who is also on holiday in Madrid. He expressed his anger at being promised things when he signed his contract last summer but most of the promises came from Rafa. Purslow told him, like he has told Gerrard and Carragher that Liverpool will definitely be sold long before Christmas and funds will be available. This was also a deciding factor in Joe Cole's decision to sign for Liverpool. I have said for many weeks that I am 100% confident Torres will stay and from my source, I have no reason to change that feeling. Fernando will stay, he will commit, Liverpool will price Man City out of a bid and Chelsea are no longer interested.

Press conference tomorrow is just a standard prematch news conference before the Rabotnicki game, but Cole, Jovanovic, Wilson and Shelvey could be introduced to the media.

Sale of the club is well underway, meetings have taken place both in Switzerland (hence the appearance of George Gillett at the training camp and games) and London where Tom Hicks along with Martin Broughton met potential suitors. Nothing is concrete yet, one acceptable offer has been made, negotiations with another suitor are taking place. No one knows the details of the deal or the potential new owner(s) other than Board level but all the players know this is happening.

More news when I get any.

Drove past Anfield at 8am this morning. I can confirm that two big white vans with Press Conferencing etc written on the side were driving in.

Time to squash all rumours.

Indeed there will be a press conference on tuesday at 2pm. Time alloocated will be 30mins.

Agenda:
1. Pre match press conference ahead of the Europa Cup match on thursday. Present will be Roy Hodgson, Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic.

2. Short discussion to ease the rumours regarding the takeover bid. Announcement will be made regarding the "perfect" offer on the table. Believe it or not, the offer is from Temasek Holdings of Singapore.

3. Confirmation on Torres commitment to the club after talks with Christian Purslow.

4. Confirmation of LFC's tracking of a leftback and a Striker both from the Premier league instead of abroad. No names will be mentioned tomorrow but i would like to reveal that it is Figueroa and Crouch.

Not going to happen Matt Phillips will sign for Watford next monday when he returns / unless England lose on wednesday when he will sign friday and be available for the Charlton game 3 reasons the relationship between the clubs forged over the Mike Williamson saga, the fact that there is signed agreement giving Watford first dibs on their talent and most importantly he is settled in the area lived in Bucks all his life and Preston is a dump somewhere a gazillion miles from anywhere.

a gazillion miles from any where? its next door to liverpool and manchester and PNE is steepd in footballing history that is finally going places in footballing terms, its not exactly a unattractive prospect to an up and coming footballer.

Birmingham City News:

Mcleish looking at maybe 4 or 5 more signings, the signings of dembele and clyne should be wrapped up when arriving back in U.K for combined 8 mil, just waiting for the end of U19s to discuss personal terms but both should be blues players in time for the mallorca friendly.
Have it from a good source that were still after 1 of 3 wingers, including going back in for babel, nzogbia and mcgeady, obviously only signing one were not man citeh.
Paul Koncesky still remains the prime target for the lb position, Mcleish has always admired him and has made bids for him in the past, haven't heard anybody else mentioned for that position.
The main target for the cm position is Michael Bradley, we had agreed a deal in principle to sign him two seasons ago, due to relegation he decided to join borrussia mochengladbach instead. Mcleish is back in for him now though should cost between 58m.
The only position we would be left short would be CB, maybe 1 or 2 loans to come in b4 the end of the window. I know we have scouted a couple of defenders from the championship due to the success of dann and johnson, they are Ashley Williams from Swansea and Kelvin Wilson of Notts Forest, both impressive last year and both born in the Midlands which would be ideal. Expectations high at St Andrews next year, looking forward to another good season. KRO

Mascherano will leave for 30 million so dis leaves 80 million for transfers. we will sign robinho for 12 million and wayne bridge for 12 million aswell. we will then sign either barry or de jong. so team for next year:
riena
johnson skrtel agger bridge
barry/de jong
gerrard aqulani
cole robinho
eto
that is in my opion a world class team. we will be taken over after the transfer window and will sign players according how we are doin in the league.

"Comrades!

Although a Liverpool fan I have been following he circus involving City, Villa and Celtic for over a month (as many of you my glorious followers, will know). It is a strange stance that Villa have taken with Milner. He wants to go but they won't release him unless he officially asks (as opposed to 'suggests') to go which means they won't get a big fee from City because if he stays he will steadily lose value (as well as motivation). If Milner doesn't go then McGeady won't be arriving. If Mcgeady doesn't arrive not only does it mean he firedoff his agent for no reason but it also means in all probability that Keane won't arrive with the Villains either. Which means Celtic will have neither space nor money for Bellamy."

I don't get how many times I have to say this. MILNER NEVER SAID HE WANTS TO LEAVE. That was O'Neill and his agent. Milner hasn't said anything since before the World Cup, so all of you reading the Paper Talk can just stop, now.(15)(35)

Spartack moscow back in for mcgeady. 10 million bid. celtic have told mcgeady to decide before game against braga. sorce skysports.com(42)(29)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:13:41
Skysports.com understands that Aiden McGeady is set to decide whether to accept a move away from Celtic, with Spartak Moscow seemingly the only option available to him.

The Republic of Ireland was holding out for a move to England with the likes of Aston Villa, Tottenham, Sunderland and Newcastlelinked with moves.

His former boss Martin O'Neill was regarded as favourite to land his signature, but a deal has failed to materialise with Villa seemingly opting to look elsewhere.

Spartak first moved for McGeady earlier in the summer, but their bid of around £8million was rebuffed.

It is now believed they could be ready to do business at £10million, but McGeady has to make a decision and Celtic want a a quick answer.

The Bhoys have their UEFA Champions League qualifying campaign on their minds and if McGeady is to leave, they want the deal doing this week.

Spartak, like Celtic, are also want a decision to be made sooner rather than later, and they will hope McGeady opts for a move to the Russian capital.(47)(29)

p.s also wouldn't rule out tonge of stoke loan with view to buy next season could easily do a job in spl my opinion(32)(40)

SSN are reporting that their source's are saying that Torres wants to play Champions league football. They also say that betting has been suspended on him joining Chelsea. I love Fernando but ive said before if we get offered 5060 mill for him i'd take it and RUN.

Here it is breaking news .. Torres to .. Blackpool..WOW! yes this is 110% utter bull but so are most rumours that have a huge list of names on herenobody really knows what is going on except a very limtied few names you hear being mentioned are often smoke screens, but thank you editor this is a really good site. :)(69)(36)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:21:56
Rangers to make a move for rotherham striker Adam Le Fondre, more so if a price for the Croat is not agreed.(26)(38)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:22:31
Gennaro Gattuso:

I have it on very good authority that Rino will sign for Rangers this week on a free transfer. He has offers from Olympiakos and Al Ahli but wants to be reunited with his old gaffer Walter Smith and will sign a 2 year contract on a pay as you play deal.

Dave RFC(128)(52)

Apparently Spurs are not going to sign Raul, Milner, Jagielka or Ashley Young. But Harry has revealed that he is looking at signing a Free Agent which could possibly be a CB. This is so that a replacement for King and Woodgate is available for the start of the season and so that the other CB's will be fighting for a place in the starting lineup more. Redknapp is also in talks with Croatian keeper Stipe Pletikosa as he feels it neccessary to have 3 keepers with Champions League football.

It is also apparent that Torres is one of 3 targets for Roberto Mancini to sign for Man City. It is possible that these targets could include Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edin Dzeko. Although Edin Dzeko is not for sale according to Wolfsburg.

Arsenal are also apparently lining up a bid for Russia and CSKA Moscow keeper Igor Akinfeev. They have also been linked with Mark Schwarzer from Fulham and Sergio Asenjo from Atletico Madrid.

Well, that's all I got. Laters.

Doncaster fan here.

Keogh is a DONE DEAL at donny and i tell you now it is a loan deal as neither fee nor terms could be agreed for a permanent deal.

Adam Le Fondre is NOT signing for us or barnsley however we made a enquiry in JANUARY but that's as far as that deal went.

3 Trialists have been reccomended and should feature tommorow.

Young Trialist JOSH PAYNE is mulling over a move here after we offered him a contract however preston have also offered him a contract.

Belive me when i say LOTS of work is going on behind the scenes and 3 loan deals will be completed soon however they wish to spend pre season at there respective clubs.

ED _ What have you heard regarding drfc?(23)(24)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:04:43
Time to squash all rumours.

Indeed there will be a press conference on tuesday at 2pm. Time alloocated will be 30mins.

Agenda:
1. Pre match press conference ahead of the Europa Cup match on thursday. Present will be Roy Hodgson, Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic.

2. Short discussion to ease the rumours regarding the takeover bid. Announcement will be made regarding the "perfect" offer on the table. Believe it or not, the offer is from Temasek Holdings of Singapore.

3. Confirmation on Torres commitment to the club after talks with Christian Purslow.

4. Confirmation of LFC's tracking of a leftback and a Striker both from the Premier league instead of abroad. No names will be mentioned tomorrow but i would like to reveal that it is Figueroa and Crouch.

I think i will get all Believable votes only for my post. I'm 110% confident that i'm the only reliable source here.

Just For Ur Info, Temasek Holdings is 100% Owns By Singapore Goverment. Their"s Investment Most On Banking, Telecomunication etc. Which has High Percetage Return For Their Investment. Dont Make Any Sense On Why Would They Buy Liverpool F.C(35)(53)

REAL RUMOURS

Arsenal to try and out man city with a £20 mil + bendtner who they value at £10mil also expect a late playet coach bid offer for david james.

Barca to sign van der wiel
Lyon to sign benzema back on loan
And surprisingly raul to sign for man united(13)(50)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:05:53
Arsenal will promote 2 or 3 younger players and only sign another defender if Sol goes. They won't spend any more than about 6m on a defender. The goalkeeper situation is simply that they won't sign one.(29)(40)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:06:34
Hi ED, have you got any up to date birmingham city rumours? many thanks if you have {editor's note – I am sorry, I haven't heard anything today as I was spending it with my little girl.}(6)(19)

Ed can you help me out mate, fabio aurellio was released by liverpool from hs contract yes??? if so then he shouldn't be training with liverpool? my friend is a groundsman on melwood and told me today aurellio reported for preseason training today?? {editor's note – he has probably just asked to use the facilities to keep in shape while he searches for a new club. It happens a lot when players are inbetween clubs.}(45)(10)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:08:13
A friend of mine works for a firm of solicitors in Liverpool.

One of the firms partners also works for Liverpool.

Late this afternoon he spoke to my friend and said that the biggest thing happening at Anfield at the moment is the clubs struggle to keep Torres.

The club are furious at illegal approaches by other clubs.

Expect a lot of fallout should he leave.(53)(20)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:10:26
Glasgow Rangers latest

David Healy will be the first of 3 new players in the door at Ibrox by the end of the week. After celtic crash out against Braga there will be a further 2 signings with obertan and M Johnston heading north from Manchester on season long loans fact!(20)(53)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:11:39
Stoke city interested in the following

nedum onauha (spelling)
roque santa cruze
stephen ireland ( very unlikley but are interested)
carlton cole still on the cards ( unsure if deal is close)
interested in 2 players from middlesbro (wheater and gary oneil)
Mark noble from west ham is available and would join stoke

stoke have rejected a substantial bid from unamed club for ryan shawcross(24)(38)

 

 26 Jul 2010 22:11:53
Reports in Spain claim that Mesut Ozil is on the verge of signing for Barcelona. He supposedly had the choice of them or Real Madrid, but has chosen the Catalan club.

If true this seems to suggest the Fabregas deal is off for another six months at least.(29)(43)

 

 26 Jul 2010 21:42:46
The young English player who may be on his way to Ibrox for a season could be Tom Cleverley from Manchester United as well as Obertan. If I had a personal choice between the two it would definately be Cleverley this lad has got class about him(35)(36)

 

 26 Jul 2010 21:43:38
Southampton have entered the race to sign League 2's hottest striker Adam Le Fondre. Alan Pardew believes that Le Fondre, Lambert and Barnard will have a bit of healthy competition between them for a starting place in a formidable Saints attack which scored over 100 goals in all competitions last season.

Pardew also thinks a jump to the Championship will be a struggle, so Pardew has told him that with Saints likely to go up a year in League 1 would benefit his career.(29)(18)

 

 26 Jul 2010 21:44:21
Danny Wellbeck will be unveiled at Rangers on a season long loan within the next 10 days.
Also Obertan is not a goer but 1 other United youth/fringe player will be offered on loan as SAF wants them to gain Champions league experience.

Other signings will be late on in the transfer window as Rangers don't want to shell out the wages until the last minute.

Once my source reveals more I will share the info!!(21)(42)

 

 26 Jul 2010 21:47:38
I very much doubt that Van Der Vaart will be joining Liverpool (or any english club for that matter):

"I'm determined to stay at Real Madrid, " Van der Vaart told De Telegraaf.

"I want to stay here and succeed at Real. It's a shame that the English press has misquoted me. They've written things that are simply not true."

Source: SSN

And all the torres talk about city and chelsea is pure guesswork. After cole signed and gerrard committed to liverpool, talk of torres' transfer completely stopped. One story in the NOTW and suddenly everyone knows what his plans are! Truth is noone but the man himself knows what he's doing. It is frustrating that that he hasn't said publicly that he will be staying, but he hasn't said he's leaving either. So until something official is announced can all the 'in the know' phonies just stay quiet!

Rangers Info.

Was in the local and was talking to a guy who claims that Rangers WILL (was very adamant) be bought within the next 12 months by possibly UAE based business man/man.. hence the reason why Ally McCoist came out the other day and said he would be willing not to take up the managerial position if a new owner comes in. Does Mr McCoist know something ??

Also the "Real Ally McCoist" twitter page is fake, McCoist couldnt turn on a PC or Laptop, so no chance off him using the titernet.(17)(42)

TO THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS !!

very recent liverpool under 18 match two arab strangers turned up, my source was told to ask no questions, mad but true, and 1 played the other watched he was fat, the player was not up to standard to say the very least, the squad arrived at the hotel and the young arab looking lad anounced he wasnt staying in here it was horrible, he was informed it was booked for the squad and that was that, he said im phoning my dad, he did and well he was driven with his fatter pal to the hilton liverpool, (i didn't know we had one) when the club driver (steve) arrived he said weres your bags lads? the thinner lad held his keys up and said the room number, for the driver to get the baggage, apparently he is a fckin prince he told a player his dad is buying the club, this is total truth i swear, if you know any one at the accademy at all the will tell you the same storey, it seems like a fairy tale but we all know its a matter of time before it all busts out, very long term liverpool fan


Why the hell would the Liverpool u18 team be staying in a hotel as a squad in LIVERPOOL. Thats where the players all live. How stupid is this. And believe me is an arab prince was coming over do you not think that they would have arranged their own accomodation prior to arrival in Liverpool. Come on m8 use your head and stop posting crap and making genuine Liverpool supporters to look like idiots

if you are a scouser and you go the game you should know someone at the club if you do, ask about it, its the truth, the person telling me was in bulk laughing about it, as for looking like an idiot you will feel the idiot when it all comes out the city isn't that big were this can be kept quiet for long it sounds like a kids tale im aware of that, but do some research before slagging people off lad

Is right lad, I agree with you there. I posted a similar rumour about this 'rumour' saying that i've heared rumours around Liverpool. I don't believe that the people of Liverpool are that stupid to fall for soft little rumours like this flying around, but they are because it's true, I posted it myself. I wouldn't be that stupid to post a lie and so posted a genuine rumour, as this sight is all about. These 'sightings' are genuine. These 'whispers' don't appear from thin air. Ok, fans are desperate for a takeover, but alot of this comes from Evertonians etc etc. It's all happening now people so leave the slagging off to some other dodgy rumours. Watch this space..

TalkSport are claiming their sources are telling them torres is going to chelsea, what do u reckon ed.?WATP {editor's note I don't believe that for a second to be honest. It was only a couple of weeks ago they were adamant he was going to join City.}

Anyone else notice that the odds on Torres joining Chelsea are now 1/3 with Skybet? You can guarantee Skybet have reacted to the rumour on Talksport. Ed, I'm with you. I cannot believe Torres will go to Chelsea and interestingly Skybet do not quote odds on him staying at Liverpool. Devious aren't they?!(21)(44)

 26 Jul 2010 21:22:22
The futures looking that little bit brighter for celtic at the moment and i can confirm to the delight of the celtic supporters that when milner is sold to city(100% happning matter of time) mc geady will go to villa 9m(100% matter of time) celtic will buy craig bellamy outrught hence the reason there has been no more activity surrounding bellamys future as he is waiting to speak to celtic..

Hi

I am writing in response to the LFC takeover rumours.

I can't say who my father is but he is in a position to know what is happening at Liverpool.

I am afraid that there is no imminent announcement .

The position hasn't changed since Mr Broughton gave his update when the appointment of Roy Hodgson was confirmed.

It is hoped that the takeover can be completed before the year is out but I must place the greatest emphasis on the word "hoped" in that sentence.

Another concern is the situation with regards to Fernando Torres.

Liverpool are very worried that Fernando has been illegally contacted by at least one other club.

Liverpool are pulling out all the stops in a bid to convice Fernando to stay for at least one more season but they want a complete assurance that he is fully committed to what could potentially be another tough season for the club.

Roy Hodgson is under no illusions as to the job he faces and he has spoken to Mr Purslow to express this point in the strongest terms.

Roy would prefer to have a considerable cash injestion to help his rebuilding as opposed to a player who may "sulk" should things not go his way.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this latest rumour is getting out of hand.(46)(41)
