Big news from Easter road Mixu wiil resign this week as he is not getting the backing from the board in the transfer market Hibernian fans will then turn on Petrie and the new man to take over will be Billy Davis.
The Hammers will sign Adriano originally on loan for a season with view to permenent deal the Hammers have been working on this deal since January will also sign Fabricio Coloccini for around £9 million to replace anton Ferdinand who will be going to Newcastle fee is being negotiated at the moment
CHARLTON ATHLETIC Boss Alan Pardew has made a enquiry to be reunited with 23 year old Coventry defender Elliot Ward, Pardew who was in charge of Ward between 2005 and 2006 at the Hammers is keen to take Ward to The Valley. Ward made 18 appearances under Pardew at the Hammers before being sold to Coventry City for £1,000,000 where he has made a total of 78 appearances for the Sky Blues with a total of 6 goals. Ward's performances last season has prompted various Championship clubs including Charlton Athletic and Queens Park Rangers and also Wards Pervious club the Hammers where he came through the famous Academy of Football to take interest. Ward is keen about a move back to London with The Valley is preferred destination but with Coventry's £2,000,000 being a stumbling block for Alan Pardew.
Celtic will have three new players in by Wednesday.
a young defender called dominic gonnella (Italian)
4 in a row
Robinho will be coming to Chelsea next week 32 million agreed personal terms and five year contract just waiting for the two new signings of Real Madrid.
Bid for Van Der Vart 14.5 Million out of money for Robinho their first bid of 5.8 million was just to show their interest in the player and testing the waters of Hamburgs Finances. Madrid will also bid £15 million for Falceo as they will need a new young player with skill and has a good attacking mind like Robinho who can play either wing or as a attacking forward. £15 million and £14.5 million makes 29.5 million
Scolari will then have all his signings for the Summer until January when Lampard will speak out on his desire to link up with Mourinho despite new contract attempts. This will then lead to Chelsea making a bid for Kaka once again who will then not turn down the chance play in the Premiership as he has always said he wants Premiership action but does not know when in his career. I am telling you it will be January 2009.
I am not a friend of Arsene Wenger, or Phil Scolaris cousin twice removed. I only provide fact. Here –
Berbatov–Barcelona, Ronaldo – Real Madrid, Et'o – Arsenal. And the surprise of the Summer – Sunderland will go mad and spendloads of money, – forlan, chimbonda, kaboul, taino, migeady and capel from seville
A club source has told me that Hearts are interested in signing Alan Mannus.
Birmingham City are looking to secure the signing of Ben Watson from Palace. The midfielder rejected a new contract while Birmingham City and believed to offer a fee of around £1.8 million + addons.
Birmingham City are also looking to secure the signing of Quincy Owsuu Abeyie who is unhappy in Russia, the fee is thought to be about £1.5 million.
Trailist Zola Matumona will not be signing for Birmingham because of work permit issues
Due to negative finances, Blackburn will sell Santa Cruz. probably to Arsenal and will replace him with Venegoor of Hesselink. This will free the way for Celtic to sign little known ( on this side of the world) Humberto Suazo on a four year deal ensuring they make a profit on a player who is only looking for a passport to the Premier League.
Moutinho bid rejected by Everton, yes, we all know this by now. Sporting want £18,000,000 but Moyes will try and settle for a lower fee. If Sporting stand there ground, Moyes will indeed spend £18,000,000, but on Arshavin rather than Moutinho. However, the whole "I'll only play for FC Barcelona, oh but I would play for Chelsea too, what is that? Tottenham want me well I have always respected them" shows he does not really care where he plays so I hope Moyes gets Moutinho for less.
As soon as Chelsea can agree deals for Robinho and Mutinho they will allow Lampard to leave for Inter. Scolari has told Kenyon to use Drogba as part of the Robinho deal as he will use Schevchenko as his main forward. Roman likes this idea. A young forward from Brazil will also be signed but I cannot get the name. I will keep trying. I have heard Gremio mentioned.
Samuel Eto'o has arrived in London for talks with Arsenal after an agreement was reached to allow Adebayor to join Hleb at Barcelona. Amazingly, Arsenal will also receive £10 million Euros on top. Well done Arsene I say.
Enough Of All The Bull On This Site.
Ronaldo Will Stay.
Adebayor To FC Barcelona.
Keane Is Going To Anfield.
Everton Will Not Get Moutinho.
Tottenham Will Sign Bently.
Barry Out, Finnan In.
Madrid Will Not Get Ronaldo Or Fabregas, Instead They will Turn To Schweinsteiger, Robinho Will Stay.
Alonso Will Go, Inter Are Favorites.
Arbeloa Will Stay.
Cisse To the Hammers.
Silva Is A Posibility For LFC, Villa Is Not.
Silva Could Also Go To Roma, Along With Malouda.
Berbatov To Old Trafford, Allowing Ramos To Go Wild In The Market.
These Are All Most Certain To Happen, No Nonsense Like Tottenham Getting Villa Or Alonst Going To Turkey, This Is the Truth.
El hadji diouf signs for Sunderland bid in for steward Downing £12 million steed malbranque seen at Stadium of Light 27/07/2008 on way out to Stoke Dean whithead and goalkeeper fullup
Word in the US is that Cardiff City are about to sign MLS All–star forward Kenny Cooper from Dallas. The 23 year old is a former Man United player. I suppose this means they are not signing Kris Boyd then.
Clubs and fans need more loyal players, like Milan have Kaka and Pirlo. Both turned down big money moves to play in the UEFA Cup with a club that was docked points and suffered the indignity of being found guilty of bribing referees.
Arseal fans must be gutted to hear that very soon they will part company with Fabregas who I thought would have stayed for a long time at the Emirates. They need a big money takeover. bad. that salary cap's got to go.
–Mountinho is all but set for Everton but sporting's evaluation is a major hurdle.
–a month or so ago Udinese had rejected a bid from Arsenal for zapata and Arsenal never got back with another bid because the Adebayor saga started and Wenger was now looking at forwards.
expect Wenger to sign Zapata.
–Tevez will sign although he is owned by a sportswear company so if big clubs contact them with big offers, well then he may go other places even Madrid (more likely when Robinho leaves)
that is all
Andrew Johnson will JOIN Birmingham and snub the interest of Wigan and Fulham. AJ is a huge supporter of the club, his family live in Birmingham as well so that is another factor. AJ is not keen to live in London which is why last time he snubbed Tottenham instead joining Everton. Now that Birmingham are in the Fray the deal looks almost certain. AJ will join Birmingham for £10.5 million.
Hot on the heels of this transfer will be Robert Radoslav Kovac will be joining Birmingham from Spartak Moscow. Birmingham will also agree a fee for former Arsenal player: Quincy Owuso– Abeyie. The pair will join the club for £4 million.
Ben Watson also set to join for £1.7 million.
A bid is also likely to be made for Shackell of Norwich 700 k unknown if this satisfies Norwich.
Mark Hudson and Pardew are welcome to Ben Watson. We have had the best of him and are happy to get rid for nothing. Warnock is building for the future with palyers who want to play for the Eagles but would welcome experienced Charlton midfielder Amdy Faye in a swap deal.
Joaquin or Rodriguez
My mate's brother's mate's Dad is a journalist who also supports Norwich. Apparently, Norwich are to sign Rasiak for £1 million, Jon Parkin for £500,000 and there is still the possibility of signing Ameobi on loan until Jan.
Back up keeper to be Carlo Nash, initially on three month loan with view to permanent transfer
To the person who said that hakin yakin will not go to Rangers cause he signed for sombody else on 13 June he was on international duty (euro 2008 ring a bell)
