Strong rumours Ngel dougherty has pulled the plug on any transfres coming in at Forest because he is selling the club. (Ed have you heard anything.) we could be in for a bad season this year, lets hpoe if it is true we get a buyer with money and ambition to take the club forward. {editor's note – there are definitely behind the scenes problems at Forest. I was told the AP were hindering things, but it maybe that you are right and the AP is actually being told to hold up signings.}(0)(6)

Robbie Keane wants to win medals, therefore he will not be joining Fulham, Villa, Newcastle, as these teams won't win any silverware.
Celtic are still an option, and though not in Europe still give him the best chance of medals and silverware over the next 3 or 4 seasons, with the potential of champions league football if they win the SPL this season.
as for McFadden, it depends on the Keane situation as Celtic will not sign both, with Yakuba an option on loan.
celtic won't sign any players until deadline day, but it appears at least 3 in, with Loovens and Crosas, and maybe Samaras out the door(12)(14)

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE NEWS

A friend of mine is very close to certain club officials at Plymouth Argyle and he said Peter Reid has been on the phone to both Alex Ferguson and Harry Redknapp a lot in the past few days. They are desperate for a striker but the only strikers United have on the books who could be sent out on loan is William Keane (Unlikely), Nick Ajose (Likely), John Cofie (Unlikely).

So my guess is, Argyle could sign Nick Ajose in the next couple of days.(0)(3)

Liverpool have confirmed a fee has been agreed with FC Porto for the transfer of Portuguese midfielder Raul Meireles to Anfield.

The 27–year–old, who started all four of his country's games in this summer's World Cup, will now undergo a medical and discuss personal terms on Merseyside before completing his move to the Reds.

Small query with what you have said lmao. he is not going to move to celtic because wants to win silver wear, so if celtic win the league, scottish cup, is that not silver ware or me missing something, and if he wants to win silverware, why would he join the likes of west ham which bottom of league, aston villa, who don't have a manager, and the chairman has stated, he will not be bringing in a new manager till after the transfer window closes, also, no european football for villa after getting put out of europa league, and they have zero chance of winning the league, so no silver ware there also. hmmm now you have fulham, new manager, who has never won anything with any team, even with millions and millions of pounds did nothing in EPL. over rated manager, chances of winning the league zero, no europe also, so only chance be carling cup. so i ask you this question with this info im giving you. why the hell would he join any of these three teams if wants to win silver ware and be involved in europe. so if going to make statements, at least understand what talking about instead of saying this and that, when you have no facts, and also contradicting yourself by what you said. all i can say is MUG

Well yet again with have Celtic fans getting hyped up over signings which just aren't going to happen.
Now I gave you the knew two weeks ago regarding Bellamy and his decision about not going to join Celtic and not another premier league club.
Now i bear the news and transfer scenario surrounding Robbie Keane.

He will not be signing on a deal with Keane, he enjoyed last season with you but he has stated it wasn't the challenge he was hoping for and with the lack of European option at Celtic he has said he wants to get as much silverware/ medals as he can, and because of which he is wanting to join another premier league club with Fulham leading the way and also Aston villa keeping an eye on proceedings.
To answer the Liverpool rumour that certainly isn't going to happen considering his last embargo with the club!

Last one thing I can confirm is that Santa Cruz is leaving Manchester City to try and keep in keeping with the Premier League rules about spending, with Mark Hughes keen on bringing him in yet again. Expect these two transfers to be completed by the weekend!

CELTIC ARE LOOKIN AT ROBBIE KEANE, AND CELTIC ARE VERY INTERESTED IN HIM, AS GOING TO TABLE A BID OF 6–7 MILLION, AND ALSO GIVE HIM 1 MILLION POUND BONUS IF GET IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. ALSO OFFERING A 3 YEAR CONTRACT. AND THE CHANCE TO PLAY FOR HOOPS ONCE AGAIN, AND BECOME A CELTIC LEGEND WHICH HE CAN BECOME. WHERE FANS ADOUR HIM, LOVE HIM, MANAGER LOVES HIM. . HMMMMM SO WE HAVE A BETTER CHANCE THAN WHO YOU HAVE SAID NUGGET(9)(8)

"Could newcastle afford robbie keane for 15 million because they are asking for the chairman to make more money usefuel"

Uhm. . 15million for Keane? That's 1 million more than Spurs got him for back from Pool in then they loaned him out and now Redknapp's not playing his only good striker in pre–season. Spurs would be fortunate to get half of that.(2)(15)

Barcelona have made a surprising £35m move for Carlos Tevez just two days after capturing fellow Argentine Javier Mascherano.Zlatan Ibrahimavic is on his way to AC Milan for a fee of £25m which is very low considering Barcelona paid £40m+ Samuel Etoo{valued at £20m} for the player just last year.Robinho is also on his way to AC for another cut price fee £16m which is slighlty less than half the £32.5m City paid for him two years ago.Tottenham have apparently agreed a fee of £12m for Klaas Jan Hunterlaar while Robbie Keane is on his way to Fulham to link up with fellow Irishman Damien Duff for £8m.There is surpisingly a lot of movement down on tthe red half of merseyside and Liverpool have put the money from Mascherano straight to work with the signings of £4m Paul Konchesky and £10.7m Raul Meireles , Roy is also looking to bring in £18m Ashley Young after Birmingham made an £8.5m bid for Ryan Babel as they could not agree personal terms with Charles N'Zogbia.After a long drawn out summer and many on and off moves Emiliano Insua will move to Genoa for £4.5m.(26)(20)

ROBBIE KEANE ON HIS WAY OUT OF SPUDS.

Harry wants to sell, but robbie like craig bellamy don't want to move to another EPL club. ONLY other option is a loan move to celtic again with a veiw to perm move next season. Harry played robbie in friendies to put him in the shop window & now season has started won't even bring him on as a sub when losing. robbie won't do Harry or spuds any favours by bein forced out, robbie will pick & choose his own destination. LOOKS LIKE CELTIC.

Liverpool set to offer £12million for Andy Carroll. Newcastle will probably reject, although they are interested in Ryan Babel and Liverpool may offer him in exchange to seal the deal. My source is former Newcastle player Keith Gillespie, he himself is about to go on trial at Burnley.

Entertaining fans of Pool still think they have even a chance to get Young. There's a 0% chance he'd join Pool. If he leaves, it's too London. 2nd. It's funny Spurs fans think they're getting him. Lerner has already said he's rejecting any offer for Young (obviously unless it's huge) which Spurs, even with CL money can't produce. 3rd. He's already come out and said he can't wait to do great things WITH VILLA.(15)(23)

 

 28 Aug 2010 18:57:40
Ola Toivonen is not in the PSV squad for their next match, ruled out due to "sickness"?

Meireles or Inler would be great. .both would be perfect but wishful thinking!

konchesky is solid, experienced and English.

Hopefully another winger can be added. .Defederico/ Farfan/ A.Young?

4 more transfers in and hopefully Masch, Soto out.

King Roy we trust.(22)(10)

Birmingham have renewed their interest in £9m rated Liverpool winger Ryan Babel after failing to agree personal terms with Charles N'Zogbia. Liverpool have just agreed a deal with Barcelona for Javier Mascherano which will see Liverpool recieve £16m initially and £6m in add ons. There are also strong rumours coming out of Anfield that Alberto Aquilani has actually been sold to Juventus and will not be back but Juve told Liverpool they would not pay until next year which is a bit of a bizzare situation anyway apparently Hodgson, Aquilani, Juve and Liverpool all know he will be staying in Turin and the fee is about £13.5m.Emiliano Insua has decided he is willing to lower his wage demands to move on after seeing his next door neighbour Javier Mascherano move on and also seeing the signin of Paul Konchesky which will essentially leave him 4th choice in Roy's eyes as Konchesky, Aurelio and Agerr as a makeshift left back will all get the nod ahead of him, he will move to Genoa for £4.7m.Liverpool are looking to add some pace and width in the form of £18.5m Ashley Young, a solid left back in £4m Paul Konchesky and a good central midfielder to replace the Argentina captain in £10.7m Raul Meireles.(34)(7)

I'm a spurs fan and would love to see fabiano at the lane but i can see liverpool who are in need of a striker making a late swoop. Don't really see why we are going in for A.young we have got bale and i don't really like him at left back it leaves us to open at the back, we should go in for someone like T.Taiwo who is experienced at the back and won't laeves open.

Southampton are hoping to sign a few players by the end of this window 2 on loan and a permanent signing.

The loan players are likely to be wide players as Southampton are lacking in pace in the wide areas.

Pardew has stated that former loan star Michail Antonio will not be returning to the club so he is hoping to sign U19 winger Matt Philips from Wycombe however the lure of Championship football may be too much to resist for the star but Pardew will argue he could do with time in League 1 to develop.

The permanent player is likely to be an up and coming striker from a league 2 club (Not Rotheram).

Or Pardew may move for Luton's Tom Craddock who also has several other clubs looking at him.(13)(16)

 

 28 Aug 2010 15:46:09
N'Zogbia looks to be on his way to sunderland.

after not being able to agree personal terms with birmingham, a bid had been accepted by wigan from sunderland. this is why he was taken out of the squad to play spurs today and is now in talks with sunderland as said on ssn.

also the mystery forward who is close to signing is unknown for now. the deal has been played close to the chest of the club as its supposed to be a real coup. apparently it is not any of the forwards that have been linked like gyan, cole etc.(41)(12)

Liverpool are set to sign Porto attacking midfielder Raul Meireles for £10.7m as a replacement for Alberto Aquilani and are also set to snap up a bargain in Lassana Diarra for just £9m as Javier Mascherano's replacement, Paul Konchesky has signed today for £4m and surprisingly Liverpool's spending doesn't stop as they have also made a £6m move for Utrecht forward Van Wolfswinkel.(40)(16)

 

 28 Aug 2010 14:24:23
Liverpool have agreed feees for both Raul Meireles and Paul Konchesky. £10.7m and £4m respectively. Also see 2 youth startlet's Lauri Dalle Valle and Alesandr Kacklinic go to Fulham as part of the Konchesky. Also, Hodgson has confirmed he has tabled a bid for Ola Toivonen in the region of £9m. I believe these three transfers will all go through and be new merysiders this season. Also, Goodbye Macherano, you have done a great job and been our most consistent player in the last couple years, I hope you have a great sprint with Barcelona and thank you.(29)(10)

Ral Jos Meireles, Scott Parker and Mamadou Diarra are top targets for Liverpool. A deal will be done by Tuesday mornig at the latest. Also expect a late move for an unnmaed striker. Unfortunately i can't get information on his name but i know he plays up–front.

Hi ed, just got back from a business trip in russia, i do market research and work within one of the the shareholders in zenit st petersburgs companies (nothing to do with football) and ive heard from some of his board tht zenit are too offer 2/ 3 young promising russian players in exchange for a small cash fee and a feeder club routine running back and forth between the two. i don't suport rangers but personally think this is a good business oportunity to side with a wealthy club and maybe get a few players and later turn them in to a cash profit.
maybe they see promise in scottish youth after all the russians have already took mcgeady?
will try to find out more wen i go back tomorrow and post asap. .
do u think there could be any truth in these murmers ed? {editor's note – it is certainly possible, there has been a lot of talk of them looking to use their money to invest in feeder clubs. It would make sense to look at a club from a northern league, such as Scotland, due to the weather.}(8)(17)

'Liverpool have sold Javier Mascherano to Barcelona for £20m but all is not lost as Paul Konchesky has agreed a £3m deal and Raul Meireles is also on his way from Porto for £10.7m, Roy Hodgson has also confirmed that Liverpool have lodged a £12m bid for a striker but would not mention a name maybe Carlton Cole or Luis Fabiano.'

First part: correct.
Second part: where has he confirmed this? Also the striker he has made a bid of (not necessarily £12m) is Ola Toivonen, PSV striker – he has also confirmed his interest in him.

So, expect to see:
Toivonen(ST/ CF), Meireles(CM/ CDM), Konchesky(LB).

Squad:
GK – Reina, Jones
RB – Johnson, Darby
CB – Carragher, Skrtel
CB – Agger, Kyrgiakos
LB – Aurelio, Konchesky
RM – Kuyt, Maxi
CDM – Poulsen, Spearing
CM – Meireles, Lucas
LM – Jovanovic, Babel
CAM – Cole, Gerrard
ST – Torres, N'gog, Toivonen
23 man squad. 8 HG, so no more players need to be submitted.
Youth: Ayala, Kelly, Wilson, Pacheco, Shelvey, Amoo, Gulacsi.(28)(12)

We Evertonians are used to Moysie playing his cards close to his chest over transfers, but he seems to have surpassed himself recently. Maybe it's because other managers like Garfield, (sorry, 'Appy 'Arry R) wait to see who he's looking at & outbid us. However, there must be something going on with Yak & Yobo. The news that Yak won't be in the squad for Sunday due to a "stomach upset", is usually code that a deal is imminent. Try as I might with friends in the know, I can't find any solid news. There are the usual rumours about possible replacements, i.e. Keane, Crouch, Tuncay etc. but nothing concrete.
This is not something I've heard, just an thought as the 2 managers involved, (Moysie & Bruce) do tend to be guarded over their transfer dealings. I remember a couple of years ago, Darren Bent stating that a move to Goodison would be his "dream move".
Could it be a swap deal for Yak & Yobo?! Bent is a Moysie type of player & most Evertonians would love to see him upfront for us. I definitely count myself in this category. Here's hoping!

Moyes still lookin to bring in Marat Izmailov from Sportin for approx £5m also lookin to bring in a left back on loan.

A take over of the club is non existance, Everton borrowed £14m last week paid £9m back to the bank and the other £5m is to pay in our increased wage bill.

But all in all if Saha can play to his best i think Everton could have a very good season.(14)(8)

HAMMERS NEWS

Despite being over 100 million in debt Hammers co owners Gold and Sullivan are putting their personal fortune into West Ham to ensure they remain in the Premier league this season. Their stategy is to loan young, hungry players and buy them at the end of the loan if they develop and impress. This will lead to the players being sold in 2 years time at huge profits. . .

An example of this is the mexican wing wizard Barrera.

G and S are keen to finalise a deal for a RB, back up GK and playmaker b4 the transfer window, with the following players being considered.

RB – 1st Choice = Demel, 2nd = Wilson (Pompey), 3rd = Clyne (Palace)

GK – 1st = Enyemya, 2nd = Lewis (Posh), 3rd = Smithies (Hudds)

Playmaker – 1st = Dorrans (WBA), 2nd = Boyd (Posh), 3rd = Anderson (Man U – Loan).

Fact not fiction. . (11)(36)

I'm a Cardiff fan and I'm sorry I can't believe you on the beckam story, if we are going to sign anyone it has to be on a permanent transfer because we have taken all the loan players the league allows us to, we are in desperate need of a big center back and have no money to spend, so the biggest name I can see coming is a free like Paul scharner or chris riggott who has been training with us for weeks.

I hope your kidding right? Forlan? Sunderland never had a chance. 2 seasons ago he was the highest goal scorer in Spain, even above the almighty Eto'o. Last season he started off average but became his old self again. There's MULTIPLE clubs that would EASILY get him over Sunderland.(37)(16)
