Hi guys. I got 2 things to get off my chest. Number 1, to the idiot who is slagging off the editor. Mate shut up yeah. The editor is doing an excellent job. He don't need brats like you coming on here having a go at him. Right back to the rumour. My dad rang me up an hour ago and said "Radio Bristol understands that Bristol City manager, Steve Coppell had a chat with David James and his agent about a possible move to Ashton Gate. It will be on a 12 month contract." Ed have you heard anything about this and Nicky Hunt (Bolton defender), and Jonathan Stead (Ipswich striker), coming to Ashton Gate? Great work as always dude. {editor's note – I have only seen that James to Bristol City rumour on here, I think it was last night but it could have been earlier today, I am not entirely certain. But that is the only time I have heard anything on it.}(1)(7)

Firstly I'd just like to say that I wish people would learn to spell when posting rumours.

Secondly, Bristol Rovers may opt against attempting to sign West Brom's young striker Chris Wood on a Season's loan as the Baggies are asking for a significant loan fee.

Rovers are also waiting to hear back from West Brom regarding the severity of the injury loan keeper Luke Daniels has carried for the past couple of months. They should be informed on Thursday as to how serious the injury is.

If it is a longterm problem, Daniels' loan to Rovers is likely to be cut short meaning manager Paul Trollope will attempt to sign another goalkeeper. Mikkel Andersen is out of the question though as he is thought to be in Reading's plans for next season.(0)(4)

New to site know a few footballers been told Blackpool nearly sorted deals for dj Campbell and rob hulse(5)(1)

SOUTHAMPTON F.C NEWS:

Nathan Tyson deal is off after Nottingham Forest manager has told the Chairman Nigel Doughty to not sell anymore players. Because he wants to try and get Forest promoted next season, and thinks Tyson can play a part in it.

Saints manager Alan Pardew has to now look elsewhere to try and find a Striker to backup Southampton goal machine Rickie Lambert if he gets injured or just needs a rest.

Adam Le Fondre from Rotherham is a target but he is not the Striker to give backup Rickie Lambert he is just a Investment for the future as Adam is still young at 23 and has a Fantastic goal record.

Darren Carter is set to have another chance to impress Saints manager against Reading on Saturday but will maybe start on the Bench. If he impresses then he should be offered a contract with Saints. But, wages could prove to be a Stumbling block as Carter was one of the highest earners at Preston, and Boss Darren Ferguson released him so he could use Carter's wages on new Talent hes looking to bring in.

Etinne Esajas has been contacted by Alan Pardew to come train and have a trial with Saints. He is currently available on a free after being released by Sheffield Wednesday.(1)(3)

I have some news on the Loic remy situation. It is my understanding from one of my good friends and writer in L'equipe Francois Le Tournier has informed me that West ham have become fed up waiting and are out of the race, however Nice are willing to wait for Liverpool to come up with a bid for remy.(3)(2)

I have very good sources at man utd .i can't name them as they may end up in trouble and i have good relations also with news reporters who have good relations with the clubsir alex is in the market for a right back as gary is too old and rafael is too young.belive it or not if maicon joins inter we will make a 20 mill bid for sergio ramos .and this is on good authority
glory glory man united.

You can put a bid in all you want you won't get him so you are stuck with Beckham's love child and Rafael(Who is crap). So stop DREAMING and tell the voices in your head/sources to tell you some real rumours.

I have heard a rumour in the past hour, although the figures do not add up right, i have heard that Manchester United will bid 20m for James Milner, what strikes me as strange is that Villa have put a 30m pricetag on his head so 20m is not going to clinch the deal surely? I know City have only offered 24m, what do you think of this one Editor? Its from a decent source and i know Villa want 30m for him but is that what they would want from City or will everyone have to pay that price? Could carrick be part of the deal? Although i have not heard that!

What's your thoughts Ed?

Mike18 {editor's note that is a strange one, but is it possible that he is seen as the left sided player and then Nani moves into the middle as the CAM United need?}

I don't know Ed, i was only told that United would make a bid of around 20m for James Milner, as a United fan and a footy fan i would guess that he would play in the centre like he does for Villa and therefore Nani will stay on the left? Who knows, personally i would think United would have to pay around 27m, in between the 24m City offered and the 30m Villa want. Maybe this is a ploy to make City make a higher bid? I really don't know but i guess we will wait and see.

 28 Jul 2010 22:13:47
Hi ed do you no if these luke young rumours are true? i think he would be bad signing for liverpool {editor's note – I don't think they are, I have not heard anyone inside the club say it is. Anyone from the Villa side got an idea who it is for definite?}(2)(1)

 28 Jul 2010 21:31:43
Ed , Any Wolves transfer roumers ? Mc carthy has said that he is not even considering Mancienne unless he off loads some more players. According to a post on this site Chelsea will be selling him for £5,000,000.Wolves have put a price of £4,000,000 on him.Fantasic player. {editor's note – I haven't any Wolves rumours today sorry. Is Mancienne really that good then? He looked suspect in the matches I saw.}(4)(1)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:34:48
Hi guys just thought i add something here as i'm a bit confused. West Ham news has gone quite are we not buying any1 else? is Remy any closer to signing or is he now off our radar? and as for the Scotty Parker i know sullivan and gold both said they'd never do business with the spuds after the gudjohnsen issue if the offer was over 15mil for a 30 year old surely even being our best player they'd take it?

 28 Jul 2010 21:35:53
Roy hodgson is avoiding the subject of Maxi rodriguez and Luke young rumours in the latest interview. Any thoughts?(4)(4)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:42:06
Leeds utd to hopefully sign a new striker in the next 24 hours. source simon grayson on the leeds utd website. message to ed do you have any ideas who it could be. garyd MOT {editor's note – I don't have any names so I would be speculating just like you if I said anyone.}(1)(2)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:46:14
Parker, will stay, no t/fer request he does not s/port spurs .remy deal is still on but will go to the last day of window, nice need the money, , , no one will buy l/pool ever, they are in the crap..3 more players in ..h66(1)(11)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:48:18
With the James Milner deal off, Man City will try and lure Scott Parker to Eastlands.

If the deal is successful, Craig Bellamy will move in the opposite direction to Upton Park.

James Milner will leave Villa, with Arsenal a likely destination. Martin O'Neill will replace James Milner with Wolfsburg's Thomas Kahlenberg.(3)(8)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:48:45
To all those southampton fans stating that Nathan Tyson has signed for whatever money 100% fact. I am puzzled as to why he played 75mins for Forest tonight against Lyon? Very nice of you to let us use him in our team after you have signed him.(1)(3)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:49:16
Bellamy looks to be joining Stoke on a season long loan.

O'Neil and Wheater will follow with the possibility of Kitson going the other way.

Rodallega's agent has had talks with Stoke and the player is keen to go.

Did I hear Campbell to Newcastle and Bramble to S, Land? Who said Carlsberg didn't do transfers? They should have bought some magic beans instead.(3)(6)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:51:14
Edany other genuine rumours GLASGOW RANGERS {editor's note – I don't have anything new right now sorry.}(0)(3)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:51:37
McGeady definately leaving Celtic Park. Lenny said he was 100% fit and would definately play unless told otherwise. MON wants him eligible for europe would be my guess.(9)(5)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:52:20
Think we're all wrong!!

Ozil will turn down a move to united in favour of move to the emirates for two reasons.

1.saf hasn't got that kind of financial clout anymore, simple.

2.players like ozil, khedira, podolski enjoy playing for prestige, they have to have a deep feeling for the club in order
to get the best out if them.

This is where arsenal take advantage as ozil knows wenger was tracking him for at least two seasons previous to this world cup.(4)(7)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:54:27
Barnsley are to sign:
Ryan Shotton Season long loan
Jeronimo Neumann after impressing against Huddersfield & Wednesday on trial
Sylvan EbanksBlake Season long loan(3)(2)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:54:51
Rumours going around West Yorkshire that Matt Derbyshire will sign for Leeds United tomorrow from Greek side Olympiakos. He underwent a medical at Thorpe Arch today apparently.(3)(4)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:17:31
With regards to LFC takeover, I was just listening to TalkSport and Tony Evans, football writer for the Times and Liverpool fan who is probably more in the know than anyone on here or other journalists has stated that ..as far as he is aware from RBS and BarCap there are NO OFFERS on the table to buy the club !(13)(9)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:25:32
Forest News!!!

Forest will be confirming 3 signings this week should be done by and announced on friday afternoon according to one of the Forest players (i hope he is right)(5)(4)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:30:17
Manchester City are lining up a £60Million bid for Aston Villa trio Gabriel Agbonlahor, Ashley Young and James Milner(3)(4)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:01:19
Stekelenburg, van der weil and verthongen have played for ajax in champions league qualifiers, which makes them cuptied , so all them are not likely to join arsenal..(6)(3)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:02:27
Ed have you got anything on DJ Campbell going to Blackpool? and anymore Leicester news of late? Thanks {editor's note – I haven't heard anything new on that, I am surprised at that one, I thought Holloway would have had him snapped up. I haven't heard anything new on Leicester today.}(2)(0)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:03:23
Ed, any news on Mertasaker to Arsenal now Sol going Newcastle. {editor's note – I haven't any news on that, I was told it would be Tasci or Subotic joining.}(3)(2)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:03:41
Ok I know some of you guys don't like Koptalk BUT.. he was right about the coverage of our game tomorrow. (£5 for a qualifying game first leg!!) anyway the concerning thing is that they reckon that the Insua move has stalled over his wage demands. Now I may be wrong (please God let me be wrong) but I've not seen the deal confirmed!

Ed please tell me he's gone, please please!! {editor's note – he is right about that, Insua wanted a similar wage to the one he is currently on and he isn't going to get that.}(7)(0)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:05:31
Leeds United officials are furious at reports that New Zealand refugee, Daniel Gebreezgiher, has lied to the media back in New Zealand and to his friends and family that he has secured a lucrative 3year deal at Leeds United. He has even boasted on his Facebook page to friends and family that he will be earning half a million pounds per year as part of the deal. Leeds United will shortly be releasing a statement to inform fans that a) This lad is not known to the club b) This lad has not attended a trial and c) we will not be signing him now or in the future.(7)(3)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:06:59
Ok like i sed yesterday i think Arsenal will sign 3 more players. Goalkeeper, CentreBack and Defensive Midfielder to give Song competition.

The CB is looking like its going to be Per Mertesacker from Werder Bremen. Would be a quality signing

The goalkeeper is between Marchetti and Stekelenburg

There is no news on De Jong, but there are quite a few reports that Genoa's deal for Miguel Veloso has been delayed because Arsenal have entered the frame.

My choices would be Stekelenburg, Mertesacker and Veloso.

Also don't be surprised if Eden Hazard joined in January or next summer as he wants to come and Real Madrid are not interested in him coz Mourinho isn't interested.

Also Jan Vertongen of Ajax said that He wants to move to Arsenal next summer and said he is in regualar contact with his old friend Thomas Vermaelen who has told him to join him, but he said he's not quite ready for the premiership yet. Up to Wenger though at the end of the day.

Also I think theres a strong possibility that Ozil is going to Man Utd

Liverpool Fans wake up coz you aint gettin Kun Aguero and any marquee player.(4)(3)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:07:03
To the guy calling himself the 'Sunderland Muppet' slagging off Stokeyou do have a point , only a muppet would slate a team you finished behind two years in a row :)

Figueroa was due to sign for Stoke last week until two other clubs came in. Sunderland were NOT one of them so get off your bizarre high horse and get a reality check.

Stoke had further talks with Santa Cruz today and looking good.

A Senegalese striker interesting Stoke but don't have his name.

Stoke have been offered ex target Reo Coker but said no(4)(3)

Fair play to Dani Pacheco. He has been pretty impressive at the U19's European championships. I hope Roy has had a look, and gives him a chance this season. I also heard today that Masch who looks likely to join Inter, has been advised by Tevez, to hold on for a bid from City for more money. I know that the talk is that he wants to get out of England, but its funny how more money can change a lot of things. If Masch does head to City, i would like S.Ireland to be part of the deal. I think he would fit in pretty well with Cole, Gerrard and Torres. Here's hoping.

Young are not happening either. ha the editor thinks he knows everything about LFC what a dickhead. been confirmed on SSN the young is actually due for a medical at LFC. so fck you editor who thinks u know everything when in truth u dont. {editor's note ok mate, if you would like to provide a link that backs up your foul mouth, and any kind of quote from me saying I know everything about LFC as well would be nice. Or perhaps you are just full of something?}

Well you didn't put your name on this post so I am going to put your new name.WALT!

Rumours is what the site is about not FACTS..that's what SSN deals with NOT! Nothing is concrete until the said football club announces officially!
insulting somebody is just a disgrace, take your crap elsewhere if you want to have a rant.

Mcgeady not in Celtic starting 11 or bench despite Lennon saying he wants him to play an important role for the game . This might mean a bids come in and the team don't Want him cup tied ?(10)(1)

 

 28 Jul 2010 20:37:06
Ed any truth in the Tommy Hundredstone rumour to Lfc? {editor's note – I very much doubt that Spurs would let him go, that is probably their weakest area. Well he wouldn't get a game if it wasn't ;o)}(5)(3)

Hey Ed. Another question for you? In the second half of last season there were a lot of rumours about lfc signing belhadj of Portsmouth. I was wondering what happened to this potential deal because I rate him highly and he had a great world cup for Algeria. Possibly more important is that he plays for poor Pompey who surely would sell the player cheaply. So I guess I am wondering why the club has not put in a bid for the player? {editor's note – I am sure he signed for a Middle Eastern club.}(4)(5)

 

 28 Jul 2010 20:40:56
Just heard from a good source that the Agureo to liverpool deal IS going to happen before the end of next week!

is this the fosters/cheese & onion fan "ken aguero" or kun aguero?(6)(9)

"28 Jul 2010 13:59:10
I love reading this page as i do find some rumours quite interesting.
I work in football and i can catergorically say that some posters on here are dreaming.

I have very close links with Trevor Watkins and Chris Ingram as i work for Sports revolution.

Sports Revolution are the largest media rights owner in UK football stadia advertising. We offer fully integrated media solutions including:

Club sponsorship

Digital perimeter board advertising

Concourse TV (Full HD)

Jumbo Screens

Poster advertising

Field marketing

Matchday programme advertising.

Trevor Watkins is recognised as one of the country's leading advisers to the sports and entertainment industry.

As a result i can say the rumours of Liverpool signing Aguero and other high profile names are wide of the mark, All i see on here are posts from deluded Liverpool, Celtic and Rangers fans.

Liverpool are asset rich but cash poor due to the complete mismanagement and running of the club, Roy Hodgson is a great manager but he will not turn the heads of players of world class stature also you simply do not have the finance, Cole was free and if Mascherano goes you will only see about £15million of the transfer fee reinvested. The rest is going back into the refinancing of the club.FACT."

Urmmm a few question to say the least.. A. Seems weird that when you described Sports Revolution you used the exact text from the website B. (and more importantly) Sports Revolution sell advertising space at stadiums.. how exactly would this make you privy to information about what the club plan to do with the money from transfers??.. jog on Cecil!(3)(8)

To the chap who said this:

28 Jul 2010 15:54:10
LFC team 2010/2011
reina
johnson carragher agger l.young(2.5mill)

parker(12mill)

A.young (15mill=babel)Gerrard A.turan (10mill)

cole
torres
sell mascherano 28mill
insua 5mill and riera 3.5mill also degen 1mill
babel part of a.young so we have overall 37mill and we spend 12mill on parker 10mill on turan and 15mill + babel for young which = 37mill but the wilson and jonjo shelvy money is from the little bit if cash given to us by owners
My source is very reliable but im sorry i can't say who but just watch

Firstly Luke Young is a right back, not a left back. I can't see him being signed unless back up for Glen Johnson, or if Johnson is gonna play right mid or is leaving. I don't know why we are buying him but SSN seems to think we are.

Secondly Scott Parker will not be joining us sadly Sullivan was pretty clear today, West Ham will not sell their best player.

Finally would love to see Ashley Young but i can't see MON selling him at all let alone to a close rival.

I expect us to pick up a good left back probably Lopez from Madrid, a right winger such as Turan a back up striker such as Crouch depending on what happens at spurs and more roles for reserves such as Pecheco, Kelly and Spearing.

Forget Aguero people it would be amazing but not gonna happen.

If liverpool are to break the bank on one signing this summer they should do it for Xabi Alonso who was brilliant when he left us and has only got better since.

Hey Ed, any news on West Ham's potential signings of Remy, Sulejmani & Clerc. Cheers {editor's note – nothing new mate, which is why I was wondering earlier if the lack of interest in Upson and Green was causing a hold up. Did they plan on receiving money for them to use on Remy?}(1)(1)

 

 28 Jul 2010 20:59:47
Hargreaves is being offered as a makeweight in the deal to bring ozil to old trafford. saf has lost patients, and hargreaves fancies the move back to germany to reignite his career and was upset at only getting a couple of minutes at the end of last season and missing out on world cup place. good bit of business all round.

Hargreaves can't walk let alone kick a ball, so he may of fitted right in with England Team at World cup but noone will take him as payment come on!(3)(6)

 

 28 Jul 2010 21:01:08
Ozil to United, 4 year 14m deal(10)(5)

 

 28 Jul 2010 20:10:12
Ok Ed grayson is sayson a couple of additions before the weekend!

3 questions

What positions
Who
Cash/Loan/Free

also ban that idiot from the site your a legend Ed :) {editor's note – the only one I know of for sure is the Beckford replacement. That is a cash deal, I believe anyway. Hopefully some of the many Leeds fans on here will have a better idea of who else is coming in. By the way, I very much doubt there will be any Prem youngsters going out on loan just yet. This 25 man, 8 home grown thing is going to mean teams will keep their kids in case they need them to make up the home grown numbers.}(9)(3)

 

 28 Jul 2010 20:12:59
With Peter Reid supposedly looking for a new goalkeeper, Birmingham goalkeeper Colin Doyle is currently on trial at Argyle and is currently playing in there preseason friendly at Hereford.(6)(4)

 

 28 Jul 2010 20:16:42
ARSENAL
GoalKeepers:
1st Choice: Igor AkinfeevCSKA24£14m
2nd Choice: Maarten SteklenbergAjax27£9m
3rd Choice: Samir HandanovicUdinese26£6m
4th Choice: Mark SchwarzerFulham37£4m
5th Choice: Federico MarchettiCagliari27£5m
6th Choice: Joe HartMan City23£6m
7th Choice: Sergio RomeroAZ23£5m

VERDICT: Steklenberg is favourite but if he plays in Champions League tonight he will be ineligble for Champions League so Wenger will not buy him. Then he will either dish out the £14m for Akinfeev who is his prefered choice out of all keepers or Handanovic who is much cheaperwill be the new no.1.

Centre Backs:
1st Choice: Phil JagielkaEverton27£17m
2nd Choice: Per MertesackerWerder25£10m
3rd Choice: Bruno AlvesPorto28£14m
4th Choice: Gary CahillBolton24£11m
5th Choice: Walter SamuelInter32£4m
6th Choice: JuanRoma30£6m
7th Choice: Serdar TasciStuttgart23£6m
8th Choice: Pape DiakhateDinamo Kiev26£5m

VERDICT: Phil Jagielka is Wengers prefered choice due to his experience in the Premier League and being English and homegrown, but it looks like they've been priced out of a move for him. So now he will decide between Per Mertesacker (who is available) or Bruno Alves, who is experienced. Juan and Walter Samuel are the very experienced players, or go for Gary Cahill who is young and English.

Defensive Midfielder (EXPERIENCED FOR BACKUP TO ALEX SONG AND TO HELP CRAIG EASTMOND AND FRANCIS COQUELIN):
1st Choice: Gilberto SilvaPanathanikos33£3m
2nd Choice: Mark Van BommelBayern33£5m
3rd Choice: Marcos SennaVillareall34£1.5m
4th Choice: Torsten FringsWerder33£3m

VERDICT: Gilberto has obviously played at Arsenal under Wenger and would love to come back and Wengers wants him back so this move looks as if it will hapen. But if it doesn't Van Bommel will be his next target he is a good player and has something Arsenal lack nastiness and shooting from long range, but it is unsure if he will leave Bayern here he is getting regular football to come to Arsenal and battle it out with Song. Marcos Senna would of been a great choice last year, but he had bad injury problems last year. Torsten Frings would love to come to Arsenal, but he is not as defensive as the other which Wenger wants, as he is more of a box to box midfielder.

MOST LIKELY TRANSFERS: Akinfeev
Mertesacker
Gilberto Silva(9)(10)

 

 28 Jul 2010 20:17:20
Simon grayson ''weve been speaking to clubs and players all along, and i am confident that we are very close to doing something''

first time ive ever heard simon speak about a transfer before its been completed. is he preparing us for something big here??
if so i believe it could be the beckford replacement finally. just hope its either a championship proven player or a talented young gun.

Not seeing the big deal with us potentially signing Luke Young. British, experienced, can play all along the back four in a pinch, and according to not only Warnock but also Cuellar and a couple other Villa players in addition to MON he is a top figure in the dressing room and will only help our youngsters get better.

Besides, having depth for our fullbacks will keep Agger from having to play there in a pinch, especially if he has nagging injuries, and can also keep Carra from having to play RB if Kelly plays a game with the reserves or something midweek. He would also be a good mentor to the likes of Darby, Kelly, Robinson, etc.

In other news, hope Amoo gets time in the first team this season, especially in Europa, and hope we keep Maxi.

From what I've gathered, Hodgson is contemplating moving for Turan and Defour pending the Mascherano sale, and the whole Maxi to Espanyol is bollocks.

There were rumours that Liverpool had offered Fabio Aurelio a ''pay as you play'' deal however I've spoken with the club and this won't be happening. Talks with Luke Young are ongoing however expect the deal to fall through, heard that personal terms cannot be agreed.

Luis Fabiano has put all rumours to bed and has stated that he will be a Sevilla player this season. Hodgson wants £30M for Masch or nothing, and Atletico Madrid are determined to land Mikel Arteta.

Secondly.where does it say on SSN about him having a medical? it's still only mentioned as "reportedly liverpool", so no confirmation.

Welsh Steve

Adrian Durham announced on Talksport that Young to Liverpool was agreed with both clubs.. Tho Durhams sources so far have been wide of the mark.. Last year he started a mega rumour that Rafa had walked out mid season.. this week its been Torres has agreed to join Chelsea.. I think Mr Durham just says anything and adds the word talksport sources in order to get a debate going. But I wouldn't be suprised about the Young deal .. Wondering, does this mean Johnson will be pushed forward to Right wing with Kuyt reverting back to striker and a Zamora like reinvention is being planned by Roy!

Ed, Any News On West Ham And Does Anyone Know How Much Tottenham Bid For Parker ? {editor's note West Ham have been caught out by the lack of interest in Upson and Green, I believe. I think that has held up their transfer plans. As for the Parker bid, I was told it was over £15m, but if any Spurs or West Ham fans on here have a better idea I would love to get a definite answer on it.}

I am a Spurs fan and although this is not concrete I believe the initial offer was somewhere in the region of £9m. This seems more realistic as Levy would never spend £15m + on a player with little resale value. Any more Tottenham news Ed? {editor's note – that does seem more realistic, a lot more realistic.

Isn't Hargreaves still on the cripple list, with publicly quoted "serious concerns" from SAF about his fitness? Doesn't sound like a makeweight, more of a weight excess.
Very simple: Ozil can join Madrid or United; Will he go for the "Merengue Fashionistas" (read: the metrosexual glamour & tabloid team), where he will have a short time to prove himself or he's out on his arse in exchange for the next flavour of the month; Or will he join United, where he will come up in a young squad and has a better chance of staying and have a longer future, whether SAF is still there or not. From what I've read, the boy is not too moneyhungry in terms of wages, so that's not the problem; If he has half a brain (and half an agent) he'd go to United, but it will be between the clubs and the money that they can and will offer; SAF believes in value for money and will not overspend; Florentino Perez doesn't give a ste if the Queen has to borrow him another 400 million. So if Madrid is serious about buying him, he will go to Madrid; Hargreaves has nothing to do with that; It's simple economics for the benefit of Bremen.(5)(5)

Hey Ed. Is there any truth to all of these maxi murmurings? It would be extremely odd to sign him in January and sell in march. Plus I think he is a classy player.

Also, I know a lot of clubs are coming in with offers to loan Pacheco, but I really hope not. His performances at the u19's have been top notch. I think he should be the third striker on the team sheet and ngog should be the one to go out on loan. Any thoughts? {editor's note the Maxi rumours were just newspaper hysteria to drum up interest during a quiet transfer window. Maxi was told he could not be guaranteed a first team spot, but the Roy wanted to keep him. The decision was left up to him. The next thing you know the net is buzzing with him being off back to Espanyol, this despite him having been out of favour there, which is why he ended up at Liverpool in the first place.}

Ed, it was a long time ago he was at Espanyol, he didn't end up at Liverpool because he had been out of favour there, there was a 5 year stint at Atletico Madrid in between! {editor's note – ohhhh I dismissed it as I thought it was the team we had got him off that was after him.

I know City have only offered 24m, what do you think of this one Editor? Its from a decent source and i know Villa want 30m for him but is that what they would want from City or will everyone have to pay that price? Could carrick be part of the deal?

Nancy, you talk about medicals like you own the operating room, yet you've got nothing but hot air with a pungy smell. Play nice or f off, I say.

As for the Young rumors: that's what they are. He may be "versatile" but he's a bench player; and he's not value for money. No idea why this may even be a consideration, so hopefully it isn't.
Aguero could only come to Anfield in a "domino effect"; Masch and Torres out, Aguero, plus another striker, an LB and a DM in. If not, no way; he'll probably go to Inter (if Balotelli leaves).
Let's see what Torres has to say when he gets back; I'd say they make him commit firmly, or get the best possible price for him; Tevez seems game to have him around at Eastlands; let im go there then. Masch is as good as gone, of course, but expect a lot of price juggling; no friends are made in these negotiations, and I hope LFC gets the better of Rafa and Moratti. Then the fun can really begin and we'll actually have something to write about.(8)(12)

Ozil at Bayern does not make sense. I'm sure van Gaal likes the way he plays, but with Ribery set for the 10position, and Mueller and Robben set as well, where will he play, if not from the bench? That's an expensive benchwarmer; they already have one of those in Mario Gomez.
If he's allowed to make a move it will be to the EPL or la Liga; it all depends if he wants to play regular first team football, where he'll end up; Madrid is a long shot, because of the quality already there; Barca the same; So United and Chelsea would be his best options. If he's smart, and United bites on the asking price, the best long term move would be United with Scholes near to retirement with no apparent heir.(20)(5)

COMPLETE AND UTTER FABRICATION, OZIL HAS PUBLICLY SAID HE WOULD WELCOME A MOVE TO MANCHESTER UNITED, CHELSEA OR LA LIGA IF HE WAS TO LEAVE BREMEN! WHY WOULD A PLAYER RULE THEMSELVES OUT OF A MOVE TO MANCHESTER UNITED IN FAVOUR OF CHELSEA?

THAT'S LIKE A PLAYER RULING OUT A MOVE TO BAYERN MUNICH IN FAVOUR OF WOLFSBURG, JUST BECAUSE CHELSEA HAVE RECENTLY WON THE LEAGUE IT DOES NOT MAKE THEM THE BIGGEST CLUB IN ENGLISH FOOTBALL, IN FACT THEY ARE NOT EVEN IN THE TOP FIVE!


And Man Utd fans wonder why the whole world hates them.

Ozil will sign for one of the big two in Spain.(15)(18)

It looks as though Luke Young may reject a move to Anfield as he is looking for first team football despite the two clubs agreeing a £2.5million fee.From what I hear he is a 50/50 shot at the minute and same for Insua , Fiorentina are getting fed up with his wage demands and are on the brink of pulling out of the £5million deal.One man who you will be seeing at Anfield this year is Maynor Figueroa who is disscussing personal terms after the two clubs agreed a £5.8million fee.Javier Mascherano is definitly on his way out of Anfield probably for around £25million however I don't know who will replace we have been linked with Ever Banega, Scott Parker, Javi Martinez, Lee Cattermole, Gilberto Silva, Felipe Melo, Esteban Cambiasso, Tiago, Gareth Barry, Mathieu Flamini, Antollay Tymoschuk, Christian Poulsen, Goukhan Inler and Sulley Muntari are just some of the names who have been mentioned in the last few weeks .I don't have a clue who Roy has in mind but personally I just hope its not Melo, Silva or Tymoschuk other than that most of them could do a good job for the club .(9)(9)

To The General:

Although I agree with most of what you posted, I feel I still have to expose you as the fraud that you are.
When I want to post about the company I work for I usually use my own words and not cut and paste straight out of the website, and if I do at least I'll make an effort to either change the words or get a snippet from somewhere other than the top of the page.
I will also use my own words when I want to post about someone who as you put it "have very close links with" and not cut and paste straight out of the very first google link I find.

You don't have to pretend to be someone important to post on this site, I for one read all posts, and have a good laugh or cry whoever the poster.

On holiday in USA but still keeping in touch thanks to iPhone and free wifi, some excellent rumours. One thing I can confirm is that as if by magic Torres hair colour will change back again in the next two weeks, just had some inside info. Same source informs me as indicated (please confirm Ed) before on several occasions that he is very happy and settled here and not going anywhere for a year at least.

Henri Lansbury will join on a six month loan later on in August. Also an unamed left back will sign later on this week.

'Sorensen Arsenal.

Story seems to have reignited.

an offer for Sorensen turned down in Jan from Arsenal. It seems stoke may be trying to get the cash to bid for santacruse. Reported £ 8 mil.

Id expect Wenger to offer no more than £ 3.5 mil for Sorensen though.'


Correct on one count Arsenal DID to sign Sorensen on loan in Jan and now want him permanently. Pulis may be tempted and wants Jack Wilshire on loan. However, one thing Stoke don't need to do is raise funds for Santa Cruz. Stoke are one of the few debt free clubs in the country and Pulis has money burning a hole in his pocket.

As for the guy claiming that Cole has been having pics at the Brit, have you seen these? Since when has a player ever done this BEFORE signing? (Asprilla excluded). Sorry that's nonsense.

Cisse was hours away from signing for Stoke last season and he has been in contact with the club again the editor can help here as I believe he has property nearby in Cheshire from his 'Pool days. Stoke not interested by all accounts.

Sidwell is still very much on Stoke's radar {editor's note – I have heard the same story about Cisse, though the source was not what I would call a particularly trustworthy one. But he did say the same thing and that Cisse wants to return to the EPL.}(12)(5)

LFC Rocks {editor's note – is Khedira a DM? I always thought he was more of an Essien type player. Essien and Makalele were a fantastic combo at Chelsea, Khedira and Alonso could do a similar thing for Madrid I think.

Rangers to sign Gattuso(free), Jelavic(1.5million), Benalouane(2m) and 1 of the African players.

Rob PSG

Firstly would like to say the door is slamed shut for goodison in's unless either arteta or pienaar leave. Think the fox got a little confused with his comments on Ben Afra as i can confirm Everton have held initial talks with the france star. The only way yobo will leave club if a replacement comes in first and as no one is on moyes radar this looks unlikely and i can 100% everton will give the yak one more shot this season as the wrote off last season due to injury, but he will be behind the likes of saha & beckford. The only player who is likley to leave is james vaughan, this will b a loan deal, with a host of championship clubs but prem new boys blackpool his prefered destination.


fair comment but i think you are wrong about yobo. everton showed strong intrest in onuoha which strongly suggest they are trying to replace yobo. if they do sell yobo onuoha will become available to them. by the way its ben arfa not ben afra(10)(2)

 

 28 Jul 2010 17:44:16
Apparently Roy Hodgson has been alerted to the possibility of signing another Villa player whilst discussing terms with MON for Luke Young. According to my source(who's very, very rarely wrong when it comes to LFC) he's tabled a bid of around £4.25m for sign ReoCoker. It seems likely that this will be accepted, as the player is desperate to leave and MON wants rid. Can't see this one taking too long, especially if Mascherano's move to Inter goes through sooner rather than later.(16)(10)

 

 28 Jul 2010 17:08:51
Ed, do you reckon there is any truth in the rumours that Roy may be interested in bringing Scott Parker to Anfield? Just after seeing what David Sullivan, it seems unlikely unless Roy makes an approach and Parker hands in a transfer request or sumin ? Would be a great replacement for Masch i think, Very energetic and tenacious, just what we need. {editor's note – I am sure he would be interested, but Roy doesn't have the money for him.}(13)(17)

 

 28 Jul 2010 17:09:02
There is a quote on this page saying rangers r no longer chasing jelavic because of a 3m price tag. Rubbish as gers offered 1.5m which isn't enough but would b likely to sell at 2m as he only has 1yr left on his contract and has already said he won't be signing a new one. The media from rapid has said there is real chance of this transfer coming off. Nothing is for certain in life but stop posting ste about RANGERS.

 28 Jul 2010 17:09:04
I am sorry, but you seem to be stating that Scott Parket will cost liverpool 19 million, given the fact that luke young is (at maximum) 3 million, in fact, that is what we appear to be buying him for. This is obviously rubbish, as a) he probably won't leave west ham
and b) He is no where near 19 millio

apparently west ham turned down an offer from spurs for parker, according to a mate of mine that plays snooker with him he is not happy and is considering handing in a transfer request so he can play with the team he has always supported..his beloved spurs!!(7)(19)

Celtic info.Ok i was the 1 who said 3 weeks ago that Sol & Bullard wouldn't sign & the merry go round regarding Aiden to Villa & Bellamy joining us. So i'll update on whats going on from a reliable sourceSo here goes.

The transfere of Aiden wasn't depending on Milner's move to City it was if Ashley Young being transfered to Liverpool as it would be a straight swap with both being left sided players, so that's why there hasn't been any bids from Mon yet. Now that Ashley may be going then Villa will make an offer of 77.5mil depending on appearances. I said it 3 weeks ago that the board will NOT use that money to buy Bellamy as there isn't a sell profit & Bellamy will come on loan ( no7?). Lenny will use the money to balance the books. However a new Centre half will be recruited to tighten up the defence that may be our achilles heel.

Ed, your thoughts please.
Richybhoy {editor's note did you have info that Liverpool were after Ashley Young then?}

according to his sister he has no intention of moving further north and if sold would want a move back home, if you don't believe, its not a problem just wait and see, apparently last year mon had to beg young to turn down spurs, which again is his pref destination? this is from what i was told NOT what i think {editor's note – that is why I asked the question of the person who posted. I was told that he wanted to go back to the London area too, hence the signing of Downing.}(5)(12)

Celtic will not be selling Mcgeady on the cheap, they turned down Spartak 8 mill and said he can go if the price of 10 mill is met, as he still has 2 1/2 years left on his contract.
he does not need to be sold, however Hinkel, Samaras, Crosas will be sold, bringing in around 4 mill plus saving another 2 mill on wages
a big name signing will be made before the end of the window, though maybe loan deal with option to buy
latest rumour is of Ilan who was freed by west ham but David James is still a possibility and a 1 year deal with 1 year option looks likely along with a coaching role(7)(18)

Transfer News

Francois Clerc who was recently released by Lyon is being linked with moves to Liverpool, West ham, Stoke, Palermo and sampdoria.
IMO i can see him moving to Liverpool, as cover for Glen Johnson, however i have a really Good Source at Stoke so i may contact him.
On the Downside he has had a horrendous injury record, and recently has had to knock back reports of him suffering another knee injury. if Liverpool were to get him, it would basically replacing 1 degen with another.

West Ham have knocked back a bid for scott parker, imo why do they need him?, they have enough English talent for their 25 man squad and have recently bought sandro, and they also have palacios and Huddlestone

Also West Brom have abandoned their interest in Djemba Djemba (the guy so good they named him twice ;) )

Sol Campbell has signed a 1 year deal with Newcastle

Schalke claim that Raul has agreed a 2 year deal with them.

Blackburn are keen on signing Jo from man city on loan, however their is interest from clubs in Spain Valencia, Espanyol and surprisingly Athletico Madrid

Re. The rumours of Ben Arfa and that other French CH kid (I forgot his name) that Hoots was apparently tracking are, unfortunately, a load of gonads. Hoots has himself denied any approach for these lads.

He has also stated that there will be no further strengthening of the back line after the aquisition of Campbell, so I think we can dismiss any future rumours of this nature. Consequently, we can also rule out any defensive departures, so if any of you think you're getting Steve Taylor then forget it.

I've no doubt though that the Toon will sign another 3 players before the window closes.

First time logger long time reader in fact I'm stuck to this page when I'm in the office..

anyway I work for a company which supplies safety clothing throughout the world, I was in stoke Monday the 28th for a conference and I was staying in the best western stoke on Trent moat house hotel where for some reason Liam Lawrence was eating his dinner there with what looked like 2 younger stoke players!

once he finished his grub I went up to him like all paddy's do when they see a famous Irish person to say I'm from Ireland(quickly realised he is not Irish by birth).anyway I got chatting to him about his proposed move to Celtic , he told me things were slowing down on that front and he did not expect to sign for them this side of Christmas, he did say he was in serious talks but stoke priced Celtic out of a move, but he did tell me Lennon intends filling the seven jersey with a big name he didn't know exactly but he did say when he held initial talks Lennon was confinced he could get in a high calibre striker.

Everton have NOT made a bid for Ireland, Moyes is prepared to give Yak pre season to prove himself that's why he rejected West Hams offer for him.

Donovan is the only player to be brought in providing theirs no one leaving. Pienaar, Jags and Arteta will all be stayin.

Yobo will be sold if a team bids £6.5m only reason he will be sold is because of his high wages. Yak wil go if he dosnt have a good pre season and an offer of £8.5m comes in.

Moyes will sign a left back on loan as cover 100%.(17)(6)

Spurs news.

Stipe Pletikosa will sign on loan to give competition to Gomes and Cudicini. I can't see this being a good move for the Croatian international. Is he really good enough to even beat Cudicini for a place on the bench? But I have been told he will sign, so that's definately 1 of the 3 signings.

The other two, like Harry said maybe one will be a loan, free transfer and a buy.

I can tell you that there will be no Aguero, Suarez, Forlan, Fabiano etc. Robbie Keane will have a big part to play and don't be suprised to see Keane partner Crouch for the first game against Manchester City.

After David Sullivan revealed to the press that Parker will not be sold at all, Spurs will go all out to sign James Milner and I seriously believe Harry will get him ahead of Manchester City.

Harry will sign a central defender on a free transfer, but as yet I have no information on who that will be.

Spurs will start the season with near enough the same squad as last season, which I believe is better than what Manchester City are doing! Can Mancini get them to gel together before the start of the season? Time will tell.

Also some Chesterfield news.

John Sheridan has snapped up Jack Hunt on a 6 month loan deal from Huddersfield and has offered goalkeeper Shane Redmond and month to month contract as back up to Tommy Lee. Sheffield Wednesday could come in for Tommy Lee after they accepted a bid from Burnley for Grant.

Sheridan is still after 3 more players. Another young central defender, maybe on loan. Steven Caulker is a name being mentioned from Spurs and Ryan Bennet also. Although did he sign for Peterborough from Grimsby?

The winger Chesterfield are after is Donal McDermott from Manchester City. They have had an offer accepted and he and young defender Clayton McDonald have been to look at the new stadium around 2 weeks ago. I have been told that both players want to see if they have any chance of making it at City, so maybe the deal is off?

The other signing being mentioned is David Hutton, a young striker who was at Tottenham last season. Chesterfield have a great relationship with Spurs and after having O'Hara and Fulop from Spurs on loan in the past, maybe a deal is on the cards? He is currently on trial at Carlisle but a deal could be struck.

Any news on both teams editor? {editor's note – I don't have news on those two sorry mate.}(3)(7)

I love reading this page as i do find some rumours quite interesting.
I work in football and i can catergorically say that some posters on here are dreaming.

I have very close links with Trevor Watkins and Chris Ingram as i work for Sports revolution.

Sports Revolution are the largest media rights owner in UK football stadia advertising. We offer fully integrated media solutions including:

Trevor Watkins is recognised as one of the country's leading advisers to the sports and entertainment industry.

As a result i can say the rumours of Liverpool signing Aguero and other high profile names are wide of the mark, All i see on here are posts from deluded Liverpool, Celtic and Rangers fans.

Liverpool are asset rich but cash poor due to the complete mismanagement and running of the club, Roy Hodgson is a great manager but he will not turn the heads of players of world class stature also you simply do not have the finance, Cole was free and if Mascherano goes you will only see about £15million of the transfer fee reinvested. The rest is going back into the refinancing of the club.FACT.

Celtic have no money, Tottenham will not loan Keane again because of his age and expect to get top money for him this summer, Bellamy's wages is far too high and City will not pay these.
Expect championship players at best.

FACT

CELTIC DO HAVE MONEY, THEY HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT 6/7 PLAYERS AND PAYING OUT DECENT WAGESWHAT DID THEY BUY THESE PLAYERS WITH???

WITH REGARDS TO BELLAMY, HE WILL ONLY COME TO CELTIC IF THEY SELL MCGEADY, THAT MOVE WOULD FREE UP THE TRANSFER COSTS AND THE WAGES ARE AVAILABLE, MCGEADY £25K, BORUC £35K AND MCMANUS £15kTHAT FREES UP £75k/WEEK NOT TO MENTION THE WAGES KEANE WAS GETTING LAST SEASON.

To those fantasists that keep posting big names, these will simply not happen. Firstly, they don't have the funds unless they sell, due to the huge outlay by Rednapp since he came. Secondly, their wage structure menas they can't contend with europe's top clubs for major players. Look out for possible part exchange deals with the likes of Hutton, Jenas, Bentley, Pavlychenko & Keane involved. Apparently, Daniel Levy was furious with the funds wasted in selling & resigning palyers. Also, the huge losses likely on players, should they be sold, such as Bentley, Hutton, Pavlychenko & Keane.(10)(10)

There have been a number of folks suggesting that Carlos Tevez is off to Liverpool or is trying to entice Torres to Manchester City etc.. A number of "quotes" have also been attributed to Tevez. So my two cents.

Firstly, any quotes attributed to Tevez would have been translated from the Spanish as his command of English is about the same as my command of Latvian.

Secondly, I would hazard a reasonably well educated guess that when Tevez does leave Manchester City it will be to Real Madrid and it will not include a long–term contract in Madrid either. Once he leaves Madrid, I would not be in the slightest surprised if he took the cloth and headed back to Argentina to spread the word so to speak.

"Ok lets get one thing firmly established here .any club claiming to have signed or are about to sign Figouroa for anything less than 7.5 million are talking total and utter crap. The reason being I know for certain that Sunderland had a 7.4 Million bid in the January transfer window firmly rejected by Mr Whelan at Wigan. Stoke Fans can also stop linking them with the player as he would not go there in any uncertain terms"

Yes your right Figouroa wouldn't sign for Stoke because Stoke aren't interested in anyone named Figouroa! Oh wait there, do u mean Figueroa? I suggest u learn your players names mate! Why would Figueroa not go to Stoke? Have u failed to notice Stoke finished higher than Wigan last season by a massive 5 places and 11 points.

Muppet!

p.s Darren Bent also said he wouldn't want sign for Stoke and look where they finished last season.below Stoke!

Well well..that was an articulate outburst wasnt it ..lol.ok I accept I got the speeling wrong of the guys name, we all make mistakes, I mean come on look at Pulis, signing Collins and Whitehead..lol. But seriously to answer your question in a adult and civil way, I will explain WHY Mr Figueroa won't go to Stoke, he made it clear he wanted the Jan move to Sunderland and only Sunderland due to his close working relationship to Bruce, of course I fully accept if Liverpool come calling, having met the right asking price, that may change. Stoke on the other hand would not be an option as would three quaters of the other players you Stoke fans insist your being linked with..you have to get rid of this sense of self indulgent granduer and accept that from next season your 'hump and heave it' to Mr Fuller will be exposed in the EPL.

First time logger long time reader in fact I'm stuck to this page when I'm in the office..

anyway I work for a company which supplies safety clothing throughout the world, I was in stoke Monday the 28th for a conference and I was staying in the best western stoke on Trent moat house hotel where for some reason Liam Lawrence was eating his dinner there with what looked like 2 younger stoke players!

once he finished his grub I went up to him like all paddy's do when they see a famous Irish person to say I'm from Ireland(quickly realised he is not Irish by birth).anyway I got chatting to him about his proposed move to Celtic , he told me things were slowing down on that front and he did not expect to sign for them this side of Christmas, he did say he was in serious talks but stoke priced Celtic out of a move, but he did tell me Lennon intends filling the seven jersey with a big name he didn't know exactly but he did say when he held initial talks Lennon was confined he could get in a high calibre striker.

RE; Al this talk of torres or aguero going to chelsea. could it be a smokescreen?
i can remember last season they were constantly looking to bring in pato but this season theres been no talk about him joining? is something happening?
e.d what do you think about this {editor's note I just think the talk was pure paper nonsense. Clubs are having to be a lot more careful this season, the market has slowed and the papers are just making up stuff to try and build interest. I wish the papers were right, because that would be good for the site, but they very rarely get anything right.}

Chelsea have dropped interest in Aguero & Pato for two reasons. Primarily the new prem regulations on squad size and homegrown players within each team secondly both Milan and Atletico have quotd astronomical fees for both players.

Another bit of info surprise surprise Madrid are trying to prevent the progressing transfer of Ozil to Man United. Reports suggest Madrid will offer Bremen money but will also let Ozil see out his contract and remain in Germany for one more season. The only scenario in which United will get there man is if Ozil turns down Madrid in favour for a move to the prem.. considering Uniteds multiple bids for Ozil & years of scouting this may happen.. not long till we find out what happens..

Hey Ed. Is there any truth to all of these maxi murmurings? It would be extremely odd to sign him in January and sell in march. Plus I think he is a classy player.

Also, I know a lot of clubs are coming in with offers to loan Pacheco, but I really hope not. His performances at the u19's have been top notch. I think he should be the third striker on the team sheet and ngog should be the one to go out on loan. Any thoughts? {editor's note – the Maxi rumours were just newspaper hysteria to drum up interest during a quiet transfer window. Maxi was told he could not be guaranteed a first team spot, but the Roy wanted to keep him. The decision was left up to him. The next thing you know the net is buzzing with him being off back to Espanyol, this despite him having been out of favour there, which is why he ended up at Liverpool in the first place.}(16)(10)

Editor; I was wondering if you had heard anymore about the Stekelenburg rumours to Arsenal?

I really don't see us going for Marchetti no matter how willing Cagliari to sell, and I heard rumours on both this page and Arsenl bloggers on Twitter that Gazidis was in Germany and Holland this past week; added to that the newspaper reports, the Stekelenburg rumours seem true enough.

The reason I ask this is because tonight Ajax play in the Champions League, which means if Stekelenburg plays he is cuptied and probably won't get transferred.
If he isn't used that could mean the rumours do have some concrete truth to them; your thoughts? {editor's note – I don't have any definite info, the only concrete thing is that Jol was promised that he would be allowed to keep a few certain players unless ridiculous money was offered. I wonder if Stekelenburg would be one of those players?}(9)(9)

also to the bloke who had a pop at ed for saying he said "he knows everything about LFC" when did he say that, and also if you read the ssn article you would have seen his is considering a move to liverpool if it even is us that has moved for him (Which it hasn't been confirmed)

Reports of Purslow being in madrid talking to a madrid based club over the posibility of signing one of there players is complete nonsense.

Ah yes, Ken Aguero himself!

Rumour has it that we couldn't afford the £40 million required to prise Kun Aguero from Atletico Madrid so we're instead bidding for his second cousin Ken, who plays for the Red Lion on a saturday afternoon. The transfer fee is set to be in the region of £5, four pints of Greene King and a bag of cheese and onion.

What utter rubbish ken is fosters man, and hates cheese and onion he's a prawn cocktail man

Man City are set to flex their financial muscle and offer a full crate of carling and a 6 pack of pork scratchings !!

"Sorry I'm a news editor working late. Currently a source in Germany "Holger Steltzner" has told me that Mesut Ozil has categorically ruled out a move to Manchester United in this mornings Germen Media. However Holger informed me that the three main parties fighting for his services are Chelsea, Real Madrid. And perhaps most interesting of all are German double winners Bayern Munich. Reports in Germany claim Ozil wants to link up with Tomas Mueller and Miroslav Klose."

COMPLETE AND UTTER FABRICATION, OZIL HAS PUBLICLY SAID HE WOULD WELCOME A MOVE TO MANCHESTER UNITED, CHELSEA OR LA LIGA IF HE WAS TO LEAVE BREMEN! WHY WOULD A PLAYER RULE THEMSELVES OUT OF A MOVE TO MANCHESTER UNITED IN FAVOUR OF CHELSEA?

THAT'S LIKE A PLAYER RULING OUT A MOVE TO BAYERN MUNICH IN FAVOUR OF WOLFSBURG, JUST BECAUSE CHELSEA HAVE RECENTLY WON THE LEAGUE IT DOES NOT MAKE THEM THE BIGGEST CLUB IN ENGLISH FOOTBALL, IN FACT THEY ARE NOT EVEN IN THE TOP FIVE!

Speaking as someone who has no affiliation to any Premiership club, I feel that Utd fans should take their heads out of their own arses from time to time. Yes Chelsea are not as big a European club as Utd in terms of fan base and history, but they are a very appealing option for any foriegn player non the less. In terms of wages and potential to winning things they are Utd's match, plus they have the added advantage of being a London club, and I'm afraid to say living in and around the London area is far more appealling to foriegn players than living in or around the Manchester area. And that includes leafy Cheshire.
Having said all this though, Ozil will end up at Bayern, simple.(12)(35)

Looks like that's £100 down the drain.

Hoping Daviebhoy comes back and honours the bet but don't expect him to.Got a nice spot picked out on my wall I was going to nail to to.

He made a bit of an idiot of himself coming on trying to goad me when Campbell visited Parkhead a few weeks ago casting up the bet but as most sensible people know just because a players having a look around doesn't mean hes signed as proved yet again.

Bye Daviebhoy hopefully next bet you lose you pay up like a man.

Lennon says he wants a new CB so after NOT signing Sol Campbell he'll be going for other target Kelvin Wilson from Notts Forest.Could be a long drawn out transfer with Forest not wanting to sell and Celtic not looking to pay over the odds.

Expect LB Camara to be signed in the next few days along with Kayal.

First of all, SSN is just regurgitating the news from the Guardian about Luke Young. It is unknown which club has lodged the bid. Im fairly sceptical about this as we have Kelly and Darby as cover for Johnson and we all know that Carra can fill in if need be.

If we pay £2.75m for a 31 year old Aston Villa benchwarmer I will not be happy. Surely there are better ways to spend your money!

As for the £51m bid for Aguero no chance. The lad's value has plummeted in the last year due to a number of factors (not very prolific last season in La Liga, didn't get a chance to shine at the World Cup and has lost his hero status at Atleti to Forlan's amazing form) and I believe £2530m will be enough to secure his services.

This summer is about reducing the squad size, and improving the first XI. If Mascherano goes for £25m+ I believe Liverpool will have about £50m to spend (subject to Insua, Plessis, Itandje, El Zahr etc sales).

£50m for a leftback, holding midfielder and striker. With some creative spending there could be a marquee signing there.(46)(25)

I am sorry, but you seem to be stating that Scott Parket will cost liverpool 19 million, given the fact that luke young is (at maximum) 3 million, in fact, that is what we appear to be buying him for. This is obviously rubbish, as a) he probably won't leave west ham
and b) He is no where near 19 million(36)(30)

Young are not happening either. ha the editor thinks he knows everything about LFC what a dickhead. been confirmed on SSN the young is actually due for a medical at LFC. so fck you editor who thinks u know everything when in truth u dont. {editor's note ok mate, if you would like to provide a link that backs up your foul mouth, and any kind of quote from me saying I know everything about LFC as well would be nice. Or perhaps you are just full of something?}
1. I can't find anything to say he is due for a medical
2. I've never heard the editor say a sentence saying i know everything or saying anything will happen from my views he uses his opinion with what information his contacts are giving him
3. Sky Sports quotes "It is believed that Liverpool are the club to have made their move for the former England international, with a £2.75million offer on the table" BELIEVED so not for definite hes coming to Liverpool.
4. It also says "They are, however, happy for him to stay and have revealed that he could link up with their squad heading for the Guadiana Cup in Portugal" by the way its Aston Villa in Portugal.
Read the facts before you start slagging off the editor mate.

Ed do you know if theres any truth in the rumours about either Peter Crouch or Djibril Cisse returning to Liverpool? Or for that matter Craig Bellamy? {editor's note – I don't believe there to be any truth in any of them.

Celtic info..Ok i was the 1 who said 3 weeks ago that Sol & Bullard wouldn't sign & the merry go round regarding Aiden to Villa & Bellamy joining us. So i'll update on whats going on from a reliable sourceSo here goes.

The transfere of Aiden wasn't depending on Milner's move to City it was if Ashley Young being transfered to Liverpool as it would be a straight swap with both being left sided players, so that's why there hasn't been any bids from Mon yet. Now that Ashley may be going then Villa will make an offer of 77.5mil depending on appearances. I said it 3 weeks ago that the board will NOT use that money to buy Bellamy as there isn't a sell profit & Bellamy will come on loan ( no7?). Lenny will use the money to balance the books. However a new Centre half will be recruited to tighten up the defence that may be our achilles heel.

Ed, your thoughts please.

The guy that wrote: "The number 7 shirt at Celtic is unoccupied so celtic will sign a well known striker possibly keane, bellamy or even Raul."

HA HA HA! C'MON! Raul? At Parkhead?
I think not he signed for Schalke this morning!

Keane? GIVE IT UP! Harry has already said there is no chance of him going on loan again and Celtic simply can't afford him. Expect him to sign for another of his many apparent 'boyhood heroes' or fight for his place at Spurs

Bellamy? He played on loan in Glasgow once, he even refused to sign a Rangers scarf once but FACT is: he HATED it in Scotland! He only went to get away from his problems at Newcastle. There are many clubs keen on his services next season, but the chances of him joining Celtic are NIL. Just to clarify that: chances = NIL.

Linked with many players this season: but like Bullard, Campbell, Heskey and David James NONE OF THESE GUYS WILL BE JOINING quit with the embarrasing 'marque signing' rumours, bhoys none of these players will come to our club :((28)(23)

Wednesday and the COOP bank have been in discussions with HMRC for several weeks over unpaid tax bills 28 days in arrears, this is the second time this year an embargo has been implemented. We are currently under the 2nd transfer embargo, the first one was in June and this is why we signed lots of players before we got our second embargo. We have agreed in principal to pay an "amount" back before going to court but when Grant's money it's the account it will be sorted so we can sign an experienced keeper, The two keepers we have already are very good prospects but no experience. Expect Weaver or Turner to be targeted before the start of the season.

AB OWL

Im A Sheff Wed Fan

Hope to have a new keeper installed for the new season.
my shortlist

Nicky weaver
Carlo Nash

Polish dude from arsenal (Loan)
Iain Turner (Loan to buy?)

Any news Editor? {editor's note I am still trying to understand what this winding up order does. Some people say it will mean a transfer embargo, others say it has no effect on the club's transfer activity. Does anyone know which is correct?}

ED from what I've seen and heard about other teams with Winding up orders, they are under a transfer embargo which means Wednesday can't sign a keeper (unless the FL intervene) untill it is lifted. {editor's note cheers, that is what I thought too.}(10)(13)

Firstly would like to say the door is slamed shut for goodison in's unless either arteta or pienaar leave. Think the fox got a little confused with his comments on Ben Afra as i can confirm Everton have held initial talks with the france star. The only way yobo will leave club if a replacement comes in first and as no one is on moyes radar this looks unlikely and i can 100% everton will give the yak one more shot this season as the wrote off last season due to injury, but he will be behind the likes of saha & beckford. The only player who is likley to leave is james vaughan, this will b a loan deal, with a host of championship clubs but prem new boys blackpool his prefered destination.

Trouble ahead for Man City! With the new home grown rules and squad restriction (25), either a load of big time charlies will be sitting at home watching their bank balance rise for zero input, or they are shipped out on loan deals before Sept. Unless Mancini trims the squad to allow home grown players in, he will be restricted to just a 22 man squad.
Given: City will only name 3 keepers in the squad Hart will start as No.1, Given as his reserve, Nielsen will be 3rd choice. This leaves Stuart Taylor out of the squad. Likely to be loaned to a Championship club or released for free. Given is likely to find it hard to oust Hart though and should he still be sat on the sidelines come January, expect him to move on (either loan or permanent deal). He has to be playing regularly to ensure he remains Ireland No.1.
Wright Phillips: With Silva and Johnson providing the width and Milner being eyed, Wright Phillips is unlikely to get regular football. Possible loan out or part of the deal for Milner?
Ireland: Not in Mancini's plans. Will take what he can for him. Likely to form part of the deal for Milner.
De Jong: Yaya, Kompany and Vieira means little for Nigel to do. City will look to sell him on quickly in the next few weeks. Won't get anywhere near the original £16m initial layout though.
Caceido: Malaga (loan)
Adebayor: AC Milan are interested in taking him on loan with a view to a permanent move in 2011 but value him at around £15m max. City really did overpay to get this guy Arsenal must have been laughing all the way to bank!
Tevez: City's best player bar none. Will not be moving anywhere (Liverpool rumours laughable like they have the money!). Likely to start up front with Balotelli.
Santa Cruz: Won't be named in the squad. Either loaned out or sold on the cheap. Possibly the 2nd worst bit of business City have done since ADUG takeover!
Jo: Galatasaray (loan)
Robinho: With no interested European parties and Robinho wanting to stay in Brazil, City have their hands tied with this one! No chance of ever recouping their losses. A player who cost £32.5m is now at best worth £15m. His astronomical wages have priced him out of moves to Barca and Milan. Santos can't afford him to stay long term. Lacked the guts for the Premier league, lacked the commitment for La Liga, running out of options. City will have to cut their losses on this one and learn from their (expensive) mistakes.(18)(21)

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


DeMn ACTUALLY CITY BOUGHT TEVEZ FOR 42M, 25.5M WAS WHAT UNITED HAD TO PAY FOR HIM, WHY DO YOU THINK TEVEZ SIGNED FOR CITY? HOW ABOUT A 4.2M SIGNING ON FEE AND 160K A WEEK WAGES!

CARLOS TEVEZ THE TRUE MERCENARY!After protracted negotiations, Tvez signed a fiveyear contract with Manchester United's crosstown rivals, Manchester City, after a medical on 14 July 2009.[49] On 12 September, it was claimed that the transfer fee was £42 million, a British transfer record, [50] but this was later denied by both Manchester City and Media Sports Investments^^^wikipedia .and united paid nothing for tevez as he was only there on a two year loan deal! Look it up all on wikipedia but you are right about the signing on fee and wages.

And about him being a true mercenary if arsenal or chelsea offered him the same wages and signing on fee he'd jump at the chance as he would have a chance of winning a trophy .Remind me when did city last win a top flite trophy or a CL?

I like this site.
been reading it for years.
much better now that the editor is around or active on it..

anyways.im the bloke from S.A
Just like to point out, Maxi's agent today said that the talk of him going to spain is not true.. source is: Sky Sports news. yeah we get 3 hours of it a day on supersport in s.a..
So there you have it..UK journals exposed again..

Also my ramble about masch in exchange for player plus cash seems to be believable .. but the player being suggested is Muntari Dont go for it Roy.. demand Milito..or if you wanna fill that midfield void left by mascher. Ask for Stankovic.. whose only worth about 59 mil today.. just my thoughts. not saying i got inside info on wether its gonna happen.

Ah yes, Ken Aguero himself!

Rumour has it that we couldn't afford the £40 million required to prise Kun Aguero from Atletico Madrid so we're instead bidding for his second cousin Ken, who plays for the Red Lion on a saturday afternoon. The transfer fee is set to be in the region of £5, four pints of Greene King and a bag of cheese and onion.

What utter rubbish ken is fosters man, and hates cheese and onion he's a prawn cocktail man

I love reading this page as i do find some rumours quite interesting.
I work in football and i can catergorically say that some posters on here are dreaming.

I have very close links with Trevor Watkins and Chris Ingram as i work for Sports revolution.

Sports Revolution are the largest media rights owner in UK football stadia advertising. We offer fully integrated media solutions including:

Club sponsorship

Digital perimeter board advertising

Concourse TV (Full HD)

Trevor Watkins is recognised as one of the country's leading advisers to the sports and entertainment industry.

As a result i can say the rumours of Liverpool signing Aguero and other high profile names are wide of the mark, All i see on here are posts from deluded Liverpool, Celtic and Rangers fans.

Liverpool are asset rich but cash poor due to the complete mismanagement and running of the club, Roy Hodgson is a great manager but he will not turn the heads of players of world class stature also you simply do not have the finance, Cole was free and if Mascherano goes you will only see about £15million of the transfer fee reinvested. The rest is going back into the refinancing of the club..FACT.

Celtic have no money, Tottenham will not loan Keane again because of his age and expect to get top money for him this summer, Bellamy's wages is far too high and City will not pay these.
Expect championship players at best.

"
UNITED REFUSED TO PAY 25.5M FOR HIM BECAUSE BENZEMA WAS THEIR FIRST PRIORITY, AFTER UNITED EQUALED REAL MADRID'S 31M OFFER FOR BENZEMA AND MISSED OUT ON HIM, THEY THEN TURNED THEIR ATTENTIONS TO TEVEZ BUT HE HAD ALREADY SEEN POUND SIGNS WHEN CITY CONTACTED HIM.

HOW ELSE WOULD HAVE CITY GOT HIM? IT CERTAINLY WAS NOT THEIR HUGE TROPHY CABINET AND HISTORY. NO IT WAS A HUGE 4.2M SIGNING ON FEE AND 160K A WEEK, DOUBLE WHAT UNITED WERE PAYING HIM. I HAVE ALSO HEARD THERE HAS BEEN SOME UNREST IN THE CITY CAMP REGARDING YAYA'S 220K A WEEK WAGES, TEVEZ FEELS HE SHOULD BE GETTING THE TOP WAGE."

The reason United didn't sign Tevez permanently was because his owners slapped a ridiculous price tag on him. City ended up paying £56mil for him. Just to put that into perspective Kaka cost Real Madrid £55mil. Tevez is a good player but he isn't that good.(21)(18)

My cousin Spoke with Dennis Roach (bellamy's agent) regarding 1 of the youth players on the books at celtic (my cousin is a youth team coach). Once talking he asked Mr Roach about possibility of Bellamy returning to Celtic on a loan deal & Mr Roach said there was a good chance that he would be back at celtic on a permanent basis never mind a loan deal, because he is 1 of approx 8 players who man city need to get out of the club. Mr Roach said that the fee would most likely be in the region of £5 million. Surely celtic will go for this whether or not they sell Aiden Mcgeady !!

In reply to this:

Hi Sheffield Wednesday fan. I am a news paper editor, who quiet frankly shouldn't be going on these sites. However you wished to know what a winding up order was. Basically it is an order served by the court that offers a company to produce assetts to HMRC within a certain time period and if the order is not followed the company will be forced into compulsory liquidation. This means that Sheffield Wednesday could realistically not be a club next season. However from what I gather it was just an accidental tax mix up so Wednesday should be fine. {editor's note does it affect their transfers?}

Couple of things to add to some of the nonsense on here.
TEVEZ I think we should drop this once and for all. LFC could never ever ever afford to take tevez from City. He is on 150,000 a week and recieved 4million to sign. You think you could match this? and stop guessing about any clauses in his contract. Only him, city and his agent know the terms of his contract.

TORRES He won't go this season. end of. but will get restless in LFC don't win things!

ROONEY forget it. new contract will be signed before start of the season.

OZIL there will be a whole host of teams bidding for him so he will have some decisions to make. Likelihood is Utd, Bayern or Barca

To add to this, David Gill quoted this morning stating SAF has the funds in place to stregthen his squad. So stop posting rumours about their lack of funds.

BENZEMA Doubt it very much. Jose won't let him go in his first season

BALOTELLI looks like another one on the city bandwagon. They will be strong next year but if they carry on like this may struggle to adhere to the new UEFA rules.

Stoke Fans can also stop linking them with the player as he would not go there in any uncertain terms.'

Get your facts right.Figueroa had talks with Stoke and let's be honest, any Prem club is appealing compared to Wigan. Don't pretend who know who players will and will not join ok. Stoke have moved on to other targets as Liverpool stepped in.

I think you may find a few more to join the exit door at the Whelan or whatever name that half empty place is called this week.

Santa Cruz may join Stoke by Friday if all goes well.(9)(11)

Very strange some of the people that comment on here.
Apparently you cannot move jobs if you are offered a higher wage, this makes you a mercenary and a money grabber.

On to rumours, Kun Aguero (or ken as he was called earlier) will not be moving to Liverpool we simply cannot afford him. Even if we get a fortune for Mach, we than need to buy another player to replace, not happening. But good news is Man U don't have the money either, despite what some of there deluded fans think. Liverpool will sign another striker but not a £40mill+ player. I doubt the offer of half of the Milan team in exchange for mach has any substance but it would be good and I would happily be proved wrong.

Liverpool to buy, left back (rumours of a Risse return), Defensive midfielder (rumours of an Alonso return are far from true though) and a striker £2025m region.(17)(17)

The dude having a go at the Editor.

Mate whats your problem you slate the man yet read his site. The Editor has sources who he speaks to and relays the info. Also he goes a long way to help people looking for rumours by calling clubs directly to see what info they have. abit harsh don't you think. Anyway if you can read below copied at 1.25pm today its the latest on Young. Nowhere in the artical dose it say he is due for a medical. So unless you had nap time which led to a dream then woke up and Mammy wasnt waiting with that tit to suck on you threw all the toys out of the pram


A snip from Sky Sports.com
Martin O'Neill has confirmed that Aston Villa have received a bid for fullback Luke Young.

The 31yearold is now weighing up his options, with Villa prepared to let him leave should he wish to do so.

It is believed that Liverpool are the club to have made their move for the former England international, with a £2.75million offer on the table.

Doncaster Rovers News

Wayne Thomas on trial after being released by Southampton, will probably sign a deal if he impresses in the sheffield wednesday game.

Josh Payne signed a 6 month deal after impressing in pre season.

Sean O'Driscoll STILL interested in Andy Keogh and could pay up to 1 million for him near the end of the window IF he can't find cheaper alternatives. Also he may be hoping Wolves will change there mind about a possible loan move nearer the end of the transfer window.

He is also on the look out for an extra centre back and extra centre midfielder. Expect more loan signings but maybe not Jay EmmanuelThomas as he is looking likely to play a big part in Arsene Wengers plans this season.

Other whispers coming out of the keepmoat.
O'Driscoll looking at bringing old fans favourite Michael McIndoe back to the club for around 200k

Fullbacks LB and RB, salcido/figuroa most likely
Winger (only if maxi or babel leave) likely turan or swp

e.d what do you think about this {editor's note – I just think the talk was pure paper nonsense.

ARSENAL
Centre back It would be great to sign Mertesacker & Micah Richards, who is English & will help fill our required minimum of 8 quota. He can also cover at rightback & has the potential under Wenger to become a defensive midfield player in the Song mould. With City having a surplus of players in excess of the 25, it might be a good time to do a deal.

Goalkeeper The saga continues & I have a horrible feeling that Wenger will keep the existing keepers, giving Almunia & Fabianski the opportunity to prove to him who is the number one keeper.(18)(10)

First Rumour posting from me, purely because I am sick of the conjecture and fantasists out there who actaully have no connections in football.
I do have connections within Arsenal FC, connections close to Ivan Gazidis (a relative). The following "targets" are TRUE, i have no idea of the transfer fees only that Ivan Gazidis and Arsene Wenger are attempting to purchase from amongst the following players.

Jagielka
Mersacker
Hangeland
Richards (Micah not Viv)

Melo (Yellow)

Yes your right Figouroa wouldn't sign for Stoke because Stoke aren't interested in anyone named Figouroa! Oh wait there, do u mean Figueroa? I suggest u learn your players names mate! Why would Figueroa not go to Stoke? Have u failed to notice Stoke finished higher than Wigan last season by a massive 5 places and 11 points.

Sergio Aguero will NOT be signing for Liverpool! Liverpool cannot afford him and you scousers just live off past comments apparently made from Aguero. The only team(s) in the prem he will join is either Chelsea (which he has public stated he would like to move to London) or Man city, who could afford both transfer fee and wages. So all this nonsense about him being in Liverpool is just rubbish and getting boring. He will not be signing for Liverpool. Get real, Mascherano wants out Torres will probably go next summer, why would Aguero want to sign for Liverpool.

On a more serious note,

I think it will still end up going through at the price MON wants in the end. The only thing I know about a striker is that he played in the Championship last season.

To all those who enjoy pretending they are ITK, can i please suggest that you don't say a player WILL sign and then go on to say what will happen if they don't. If there is any doubt then it is obvious that it isn't a certainty, thus you can't say they WILL sign, just that the club/manager is hopeful of securing a transfer.

Since announcing he wants to quit Liverpool, the club has received enquiries from 4 different clubs, 3 in Italy and one in Spain.

The 3 in Italy are: Inter, AC Milan and Roma All are willing to meet Liverpool's valuation of the player, which is £26m but all are looking for a player(s) plus cash option, as they know Liverpool need strengthening and funds are tight everywhere Potential deals muted so far as follows:
Roma Players offer: John Arne Riise & Matteo Brighi plus £12m, but Liverpool prefer Julio Baptista to Brighi (a deal could be done)

AC Milan player Huntelaar plus £16m (Hodgson to enquire about, believe it or not, the availability of Beckham)

Ah yes, Ken Aguero himself!

Rumour has it that we couldn't afford the £40 million required to prise Kun Aguero from Atletico Madrid so we're instead bidding for his second cousin Ken, who plays for the Red Lion on a saturday afternoon. The transfer fee is set to be in the region of £5, four pints of Greene King and a bag of cheese and onion.

I've got some good and bad news from my source in Norway. The good news is that the rumour of Luke Young joining Liverpool is untrue. This was a rumour set up, to drum up the interest of the player. The bad news is that the interest of Aguero to Liverpool has fellt through. Liverpool and Athletico Madrid had agreed the transfer fee. But the personal terms didn't get so well. He demanded way to much. This was not a pleasure to me to tell you guys, i'm sorry!

What do you think ed? {editor's note – I don't think Liverpool have got close to agreeing a fee for Aguero, he is way out of Roy's budget.}(10)(23)

Hi All,

(My Latest News)

I've had more chats with J Coles mates and the Turan deal is looking like a goer, apparently Roy was happy to bid on the back of Kennys recommendation but has seen plenty of tapes now and is pushing on as a priority after Reiras exit, next couple of weeks hopefully, its was said the player would virually sign for any contract terms as he loves the club, the stall is the mash money which is turn waiting on the Man C bid for the young striker (forgotten his name! sorry) at Inter. The merrygoround will begin once that deal is done. The aguero signing is not going to happen this window, possibly the Jan one but it is the marquee signing for the new owners when that's all done (no news on that sorry!) so its likely for next year! Jansen and figuero are the main lb targets and one will sign, jansen is preferred but may be harder to convince but he hasn't ruled it out, so the Wigan lad looks favourite at the moment. The 'tapping up' won't be reported but a 'favourable deal' for Barry is now being eyed, which is the one apparently most of the squad want (England team mates i guess)

I know the source is genuine but the actual info might not be, afterall i heard about most of this last week and nowt has emerged or been reported yet, although there have been lots of other rumours concerning the same mentioned players (smoke without fire? Hope not, Jansen and Barry along with Cole Jova and Wilson is good business, especially if the Aguero Coup and buyout happen soon too.

Heard somehing about the Chelsea too, Drogba is being replaced soon (don't know if that this window or next year!) but attitude is still putting off the management and due to his age they want to cash in before his value drops too much, not sure who the replacement will be, not torres or aguero (it would seem anyway) but it is a top top name coming in!

Oh and from what i've got, J cole had made up his mind to join Liverpool (history, 1st team, stevie g, etc) but didn't want to confirm (dotted line) until after the world cup incase he had a blinder and everyone wanted him at stupid money. The move to Liverpool wasn't money orientated as he had similar offers from all parties, but it would have been if he turned us down, apparently LFC knew this was the case and didn't blame him, at nearly 29 that could have guaranteed him a 5 year contract on silly money and he couldn't resist securing his future. Like i said, just what i've heard. For the record I'm a LFC fan living in West London.


More if I get it. (ed have you got anything else to support or dispell this lot? Cheers)

Reports in Germany claim Ozil wants to link up with Tomas Mueller and Miroslav Klose."

28 Jul 2010 09:20:19
Since announcing he wants to quit Liverpool, the club has received enquiries from 4 different clubs, 3 in Italy and one in Spain.

The 3 in Italy are: Inter, AC Milan and Roma All are willing to meet Liverpool's valuation of the player, which is £26m but all are looking for a player(s) plus cash option, as they know Liverpool need strengthening and funds are tight everywhere Potential deals muted so far as follows:
Roma Players offer: John Arne Riise & Matteo Brighi plus £12m, but Liverpool prefer Julio Baptista to Brighi (a deal could be done)

AC Milan player Huntelaar plus £16m (Hodgson to enquire about, believe it or not, the availability of Beckham)

Inter players Davids Santon & Sully Muntari plus £8m.

The team from Spain is Barcelona, who have turned to Masch as a cheaper and more available option than Fabregas.

They are offering: Eric Abidal and Bojon plus £5m.MATE you were doing so well up until the AC Milan and Beckham rubbish, he's owned by LA Galaxy! So why would they ask about his availability?????

Leeds are handing a trial to Paul Koulibaly, he is a full back from a small African country (sky sports news)
SG obviously recognises that we have struggled in those areas and is making sure we have enough competition in the full back area.
Andy Robinson still has no takers! (sky sports news)
The Becchio story is Bull St as he has been one of our more consisitant players and we are in need of a good strike partner for him. Shaun Harvey has rubbished these claims, (Sky Sports news).
I still believe we are in need of 3 more players, a strong centre back and a David Batty type Midfielder as we don't seem to have a tough tackler and we need a fast, proven striker. The rumours I hear are just peoples wish lists where I believe SG knows his targets and will continue to suprise us untill the end of transfer window. We couldn't compete with Celtic for Hooper as his previous club have netted nearly 500,000 grand sell on clause and I don't believe we would spend that much on 1 player. I still may be proven wrong.

Rangers pursuit of Nikica Jelavic continues, both clubs nearing a figure which would allow contract talks to take place.

Rapid holding out for 2m.

Loan deals still rumoured but very few players appear interested in swapping the EPL for the SPL! Rangers being cautious after having their fingers burned with Rothen last year.

Rangers want to sign three 'decent' players. In other words no diddies, players that will improve the team/squad. Plus one on loan.

Left and Right Mid.
CF
Left sided defender.

Bougherra still a possible mover with interest expected to pick up.
McGregor likely to stay as his off field antics have put a few suitors off.

Neill Alexander likely to move on.

Some interest In McCulloch from the Championship and Blackpool allegedly.

Dundee Utd keen on Webster. Webster enjoyed his time at DU but unlikely to want to go unless heavily compensated financially.

HOW ELSE WOULD HAVE CITY GOT HIM? IT CERTAINLY WAS NOT THEIR HUGE TROPHY CABINET AND HISTORY. NO IT WAS A HUGE 4.2M SIGNING ON FEE AND 160K A WEEK, DOUBLE WHAT UNITED WERE PAYING HIM.

Aiden 'over rated' mcgeady might leave them from across the city, if so, I would expect a decent signing to come out of Celtic still.

In England. Ozil will move to PL ( but not spurs) at the last min, probably UTD, Spurs have had a bid rejected for Scott Parker and Balotelli will almost certainly be at Man City!

NEWCASTLE NEWS !

Sol Campbell will today sign a 1 year contract at st james park , he has choosen to join Newcastle instead of Arsenal due to the fact that he think he will get more games.

Newcastle are also waiting from Manchester United to see if they are allowing Tom Cleverley to join them on a season long loan , the player has stated that he wants to join the club on loan

The signing of Campbell is not the last of United's business either with Newcastle's interest in St Etienne defender Yohan Benalouane not yet over according

to French sources. Hughton is pressing for further cover at the back as well as looking to add reinforcements up front.

United are involved in discussions with Marseille about midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa and are hopeful of brokering a deal for the 23yearold France international before the season starts.

That would tie in with the latest claims from Marseille's sporting director Jose Anigo that Newcastle are one of "four or five" clubs interested in him.

If anyone else has heard anymore rumours then let me know cheaz.

Can I add Didi Hamman to this list??

Markus Babbel & Jurgen Klinsmann

Not sure that Babbel was capped after he joined Liverpool. Another player missing from the list is Christian Ziege (Middlesbrough, Liverpool & Tottenham).

Sol Campbell will sign for NUFC today. During the friendly last night with SC NEUSIEDL 1919 (won 40!) Johan Djourou was replaced through injury after just 29 mins. Wenger cannot rely on this guy he is made of glass! He will now be forced into upping the ante in order to land either Serdar Tasci or the more favoured Per Mertesacker. Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka have both been priced out of moves.
Almunia will be leaving Osasuna are willing to take him which leaves the door open for Stekelenburg (Ajax) if a sensible deal can be done. No senior players will be leaving now other than Almunia. Barca have been firmly put in their place over the Cesc Fabregas situation and he knows now that he has some heroic performances to put in early doors to truly win the fans back again.
Last night, Chamakh got his first for Arsenal from the penalty spot against the Austrian 3rd Div side! He has failed to score in open play against Barnet, Graz and Neusiedl slightly worrying seeing as EmmanuelThomas, Simpson, Lansbury and Vela (all fringe players) made it look easy! Lets hope he ups his game in this weekend's Emirates Cup!(37)(8)

To the person who wrote this..

Charlton will let Phil Parkinson spend money for the first time this week, and he will spend it on 2 strikers, a right back and a goalkeeper

The goalkeeper is rumoured to be Angekren, the right back Stephen Darby on loan from Liverpool, and the strikers Le Fondre from Rotherham and Pitman from Bournemouth

If Charlton are spending money on a goalkeeper, it won't be Angekren (or I presume you mean Ankergren) who was released by Leeds and is available on a free. Get your facts right before you start fabricating stories.(5)(23)

Tevez to LFC is just a rumor theres no truth to it, before he got signed to MC he said he would absolutely not sign to liverpool and that was when they had champions league football. as much as i'd love to see it happen it doesn't seem realistic.

also the aguero rumor seems implausible seeing as how its being said that ManU are preparing a 51million bid for him where can we get that kind of cash?


Fair point with the Tevez thing, don't think it's likely, but where would united get this sort of money from when they're situation is worse than liverpool's yet not as publicised?!

Celtic will offer Peter Luccin a permanent deal, and expect Biram Kayal's move to be completed by Friday. David James will sign a 2 year deal after talks in Glasgow this weekend.

Other moves that Lenny is lining up are possible deals for Diomansy Kamara who impressed whilst on loan last season, a £3 million deal for Liam Lawrence and a possible move for recently released West Ham United striker, Ilan.

All rumours that have surfaced in the last week or so. Not 100% certain but definite possibilities.

West Ham are talking to representatives of Raul and Klose. I find it highly unlikely and not very sensible to get both and I have no idea how well talks are going. I imagine it is likely we will sign one of the two, unless someone pinches them like usual

Heard that Mr Gold is currently in Spain. On a radio broadcast interview for BBC Radio Essex he stated he is out in Spain for business and tying up a few deals. He also stated the only likely way Beckham will come to West Ham is on a 6 month loan in January.

Unfortunately news of these 'deals' and this 'business' is not yet public although the Raul deal is believed to be on the table. Despite Schalke publicly stating an interest, Raul himself when released by Madrid said it would be a German or English top flight side.

If anyone has any further news on Raul, or Mr Gold's comments then please post on here!

NW keeps saying he's looking at two strikers, plus I keep hearing McAnuff and Orr are due in. Henderson is one name I've heard thrown around and now Aliadiere. I'm hoping you can tell me the latter is a joke as he's aweful.

Anyway, if you've got any news for me, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

B {editor's note – I can set your mind at ease on Aliadiere, well hopefully anyway, as I have been told he is unlikely to stay in England. He has been disappointed by the teams that have shown interest as they are not of the level he expected. By that I would guess it would rule out QPR as most players expect them to challenge for promotion this year.}(7)(15)

"also the aguero rumor seems implausible seeing as how its being said that ManU are preparing a 51million bid for him where can we get that kind of cash?"

More like where can Manure get that kind of cash? Why would anyone pay even 51M for Kun when he hasn't been prolific and wasn't even starting for Argentina? He has 2 years left on his contract and has refused to extend it so he should be worth around £25M max.(23)(20)

Hi ED!

GREAT NEWS
torres remain at anfield.

More transfers

I had talk to my sources at the club that told torres will remain as i told u all earlier.
now my sources say that :

Maynor Figuroa has signed for liverpool and will be at anfield for a medical on Friday.(cost 6mill)

Carlos Salcido has agreed the terms and will put pen on paper in a couple of days.(cost 4 mill)

we could see a surprise signing in a couple of days as my sources say. (it could be of raul (cost free) or peter crouch(10 mill) i think) but will be a striker and a good one.

Roy will make a bid for turan (cost 15 mill) as soon as the mach deal is finalised.roy is keen to bring him to anfield.

L.young(cost 3 mill) has been signed by liverpool subject to the medical which will take place on monday or saturday.

all the transfer announcements will be made after the first leg match of europa league.

paul sharner has already signed and will be for a medical on friday.(cost free)

i have been told that roy is very happy with the departure of mash. as he gets around 25 mill to have a blast at the transfer market.

Drenthe is being asked by roy for a loan move only.
We can see the bridge move only if we get him for 6 mill. which can happen later in aug. when man city tries to balance their expendure.

one more good news is sami hyypia is returning for a 2 year contract. (cost 2 mill).

one confirmed news is that Purslow has had talks with Aguero for a move to liverpool(dont be much happy) not this window, but we ll see his move in january window.

Marcus Pederson can also join the club if the money is left after all the signings. otherwise hell join us in january window.

no one at the club staff knows about the takeover.As it is being kept a secret form the staff at LFC.

Ed:(what can u say at all these signings.plz comment as i know u too have sources at the club.What they say.)


IN ROY WE TRUST
LFC TILL MY LAST BREATH
LFC ROCKSZ
Amit {editor's note – I have been told the Figueroa signing was fictional and just his agent trying to drum up interest in the player. Drenthe, Scharner, Raul and Young are not happening either. But the person who told me said that his reasoning behind the Young story not being true is purely because none of the scouting dept have recommended him at all. So if he signs then that is proof that Hodgson is definitely choosing the players without a shadow of the doubt. Doesn't help me much if he is though, as I don't have anyone close to him or Purslow.}(20)(23)

First post, here goes..

RE: Cambell to Celtic/Newcastle.. for the Bhoys fans, just remember what he did at Notts County, I doubt he'll be going to Celtic when the "last hurrah" in the Premier League is available to him.

RE: Kelvin Wilson to Celtic, will not be happening unless silly money is offered.
Billy Davies was in An Audience With at The Approach in Nottingham last night, quashing strike rumours for Kelvin and also any rumours that may have surfaced about him having arguments with the Chairman and the Board at Forest. He also denied any intention to quit.

He also hinted that the Shorey deal is not dead in the water.(28)(14)

 

 28 Jul 2010 09:20:19
Since announcing he wants to quit Liverpool, the club has received enquiries from 4 different clubs, 3 in Italy and one in Spain.

The 3 in Italy are: Inter, AC Milan and Roma All are willing to meet Liverpool's valuation of the player, which is £26m but all are looking for a player(s) plus cash option, as they know Liverpool need strengthening and funds are tight everywhere Potential deals muted so far as follows:
Roma Players offer: John Arne Riise & Matteo Brighi plus £12m, but Liverpool prefer Julio Baptista to Brighi (a deal could be done)

AC Milan player Huntelaar plus £16m (Hodgson to enquire about, believe it or not, the availability of Beckham)

Inter players Davids Santon & Sully Muntari plus £8m.

The team from Spain is Barcelona, who have turned to Masch as a cheaper and more available option than Fabregas.

They are offering: Eric Abidal and Bojon plus £5m.(12)(23)

Liverpool:
I don't think anyone can plot what Roy hodgson is trying to do in the transfer market, tonight he tabled a bid of 2.5 million for Aston Villa full back. I thaught he was going to use martin Kelly as a back up right back, but he has been playing at cb, does this mean that Stephen darby will leaving the club.
Onto other players departing I think maxi has been told he won't be a regular starter so he will leave and return to his former club espanyol. I also think that martin skrtel will leave Liverpool to follow rafa to Inter, hodgson seems to be selling foreign players to buy English players.
Departures:
Javier Mascherano 30 million Inter Milan
Albert Riera 4.1 million Olympiacos
Martin Skrtel 12 million Inter Milan
Stephen Darby Loan Swindon
Yossi Benayoun 5.5 million Chelsea
Philip Degen 1.5 million Stuttgart

I really enjoy reading these rumours and being a hardline liverpool fan and season ticket holder I hope to myself that many are true but to me it stands out a mile what will happen at LFC. Joe Cole is our "marquee" signing. We had money from Alonso last year, 6m in Jan, we have taken 10m in so far this year and spent 3m. Lets say RH got given 10m and we get 25m from Masch, can you really see LFC spending 50m? Wouldnt Rafa have stayed if he had 50m to spend? We will make signings to total 1015m another 2 players in the 510m bracket and the rest is interest payments.

Get real I think this is what will happen don't you all?

Firstly, I am not a Liverpool fan Oxford Utd if you must know, so I have no reason to make up such a story Tevez reportable insisted on the clause as he was not confident that the club could deliver on their promises of glory and, more significantly, their promise to build a team around his talents.(10)(37)

Morning Ed, I heard Roys interview yesterday and it sounds good news about Torres but a couple of things bug me and wonder if you can provide any update. Is he really committed to LFC or just realises that Barca can't afford him this year but he'll probably go next year. Or is he staying as Purslow has informed him there will be more players coming in and the takeover will happen this season. And if there is money to be spend on players why have we (allegedly) put in a 2.75mill bid for Luke Young, a right back who can't get into Villa's 1st team. Or is he the back up to a 2nd left back we are about to buy, Ifso who? And fionally is it true Maxi is off to Espanyol? {editor's note – Torres is not thinking about Barca, he has never said anything other than him staying next season, or given any indication of leaving. All just paper bull. The so–called bid for Luke Young is a guess by the Guardian. O'Neill said 'a club' had made a bid for Young, the Guardian have decided it is Liverpool and that has gone round the web like wildfire. The Maxi story was just 2+2 equalling 22, he asked if he was wanted at the club, Roy said he wants him but could not guarantee him a first team place and if he did want to leave the club would let him go, if HE chose. That got out and became a story that he was hunting for clubs and Espanyol had come in to grab him. I doubt he will return to a club that froze him out at the end of his time there.}(25)(23)

ED from what I've seen and heard about other teams with Winding up orders, they are under a transfer embargo which means Wednesday can't sign a keeper (unless the FL intervene) untill it is lifted. {editor's note – cheers, that is what I thought too.}(12)(12)

 

 28 Jul 2010 07:12:20
Man Utd will keep very close tabs on the situation regarding Mesut Ozil right up to the end of the transfer window if necessary! If a bid comes from another club, United will match it and hope Ozil will join! Otherwise they will try to have an agreement in place to sign him in Jan for free, with him joining in the summer!
Stephen Ireland is being looked at as a possible target! If he is not used by City in any deal for Milner, then a potential £8m move may be on the cards! Fergie has watched him for some time, and being a boyhood United fan might provide some sway in the matter!
Steven Defour is a very possible summer signing! Fergie has expressed great interest in him so will keep tabs on his pre season fitness to assess whether to bid now, jan or next summer! With Liverpool reportedly interested in signing him to replace Mascherano, Fergie may have to bite the bullet and get him now!
One rumour I have heard recently is that Fergie is also keeping a very, very close eye on Flamini of AC Milan! I believe he has been linked with a couple of clubs, but from what I have heard Fergie may well bid for him! He did well at Arsenal and wouldn't have any issues with him EPL experience!
Ninis deal looks pretty dead in the water now, which is a shame because he looks very promising! May be rekindled in Jan or next summer!
Look out for a cheeky bid from Real Madrid for Evra if they can't get Ashley Cole from Chelsea! Would need to be substantial to be accepted, and allow Fergie to replace him, but unlikely to go through!

Ivan Gazidas is in Bremen to prise Per Mertesacker from the Bundesliga side. Reports suggest that a deal could be done in the next 48 hours for a fee between £1014 million. But, if the deal falls through they will turn their attention to either Ajax's Jan Vertonghen or Dynamo Kiev's Senegalese defender Pape Diakhate.

The Goalkeeping situation is still a mess at arsenal, Mark schwazer is becoming less and less likely, which isn't a bad thing. With Arsene turning his attention to recently on sale Marchetti from Calagari £5m, Stekelenburg from Ajax £69m or Akininfeev from CSKA Moscow for £10m.

With Sol Cambell set to sign for Newcastle Arsene will be on the look for a defender. With only 3 central defenders available a new CB will need to be signed. The rumour mill says Jagielka is Wenger's prime target with perhaps Metsacker an option for the right price. I wouldn't rule out a sneaky bid for Micah Richards who I believe would be a good option.

It seems Almunia's future is also uncertain. Wenger has refused to publicly back the spaniard. With the current Russian no.1 and Italian no.2 goal keepers available Wenger may enquire and put in a bid for the right price. Although Fulham's current number is most likely Wenger's first option despite Igor Akinfev publicly stating he would like join the gunners.(34)(15)

"Schwarzer: this rumour has been going on for months. If it was going to happen it would have been done by now. The fact that a 2 million bid has been rejected seems to me like it's done and dusted. The man is 37 and Wenger has NEVER spent big for no good reason. He's slightly better than Almunia, but is not worth more than 2 million for the one season he'll get at the Emirates if he were to come."

Dream on buddy, Schwarzer was one of the best GKs in the premier league last year, top five at the very least. AW wants to bring him into the club on Player/Coach deal, because he thinks that he will be a great role model/teacher for the younger GKs at the club. He is Premier League experienced, and already lives in london, so there is no settling in period. 24 million sounds like a lot, but when you factor in stablilty plus long term coaching/role model benefits, it is actually pretty smart.. how much would it cost to get a top GK with premier league exp? you can't buy them! he tried with a sneaky 16 million bid for Renia.

Also, schwarzer is the most capped foreigner to ever play in the premier league, you don't achieve that without some skill..(24)(11)

Im finding these rumours funnier by the day. Liverpool will NOT buy anyone to replace Mascherano, Spearing will be his replacement. Only £10m from JM sale will be put towards transfers.Liverpool need to pay the banks £50m before Sept 1 and since Aug 01 09 have made a profit in their transfers of £32m. £18m from the JM sale will placate the banks for now. LFC will not sell for less than £28m.This Luke Young rumour has depressed me even further. We need better players than that ( no offence mate ). Do you realise the way Tom Hicks works, he is already asset stripping and Christian take your head out of your arse and fight the money grabbing couldnt think of the right word.(14)(34)

Moussa Dembele to sign for blues for £5m at the start of next week as blues are now back from china, Konchesky talks will also open back up once a new manager has been installed. No news on the who the winger will be yet. I think that a certain Ronaldinho will joins blues aswell it is known that we are looking at a south african midfielder (not riquelme)

Ronaldinho is south african is he?(5)(21)

Leeds will not be signing Chopra. Nor will they be signing Lita. Grayson has made it clear he wants a new striker but at the most it will be a loan from a Premiership or maybe even a Championship club, and it will also be done two or three days before the start of the season, knowing the usual lateness of things with this club.

Some possible names:

Jay Simpson or more likely Sanchez Watt (Arsenal)
Scott Sinclair (Chelsea)
Andy Keogh (Wolves)
Caleb Folan (Hull)
Jon Stead (Ipswich)
Stephen Elliott (Preston)

As for centrebacks, Kaspars Gorkss of QPR is a possibility as he played under Grayson at Blackpool but again money could be an obstacle

David James is stuck in two minds over joining celtic or bristol city. More than likely to make a decision by Friday.

Kelvin Wilson should join celtic by the end of the week for a fee of around 1.3 million.

Samaras will leave when the first concrete bid of about 1.5 million is offered. The club he will join will be Hercules or a dutch team.

Hinkel will return to germany as he was left out of the squad for the Braga game. Most probobly to Stuttgart.

The number 7 shirt at Celtic is unoccupied so celtic will sign a well known striker possibly keane, bellamy or even Raul.



Rangers will not get Jelavic as the asking price is 3.5 milllion. They have now turned there sights on AZ Alkmaar striker Graziano Pelle.

Katlego Mphela is very interested in a move to Rangers and will either go to rangers or birmingham.
The striker will be brought in as a more athletic replacement to Boyd.

Yohan Benalouane should tie up a deal before the start of the seasonCeltic Starting 11

This is my last contribution tonight but I have spoke to Jose Antonio Martin fernando torres's agent and he has reitterated that fernando will be playing for liverpool next season. Jose also informed me that Chelsea showed an interest but pulled out the race a long time ago. With regards to Manchester City Jose said "I would struggle to identify any reason Fernando would want to go to Manchester as they can only offer what Liverpool can offer him or maybe less. In fernando's eyes Liverpool is a much bigger club than city and he wants to repay Liverpool's loyalty to him. I recently had a conversation with Fernando and he is on holiday oblivious to all these reports. Me and Fernando know there is nothing in them.(33)(26)

No news on the who the winger will be yet. I think that a certain Ronaldinho will joins blues aswell it is known that we are looking at a south african midfielder (not riquelme)"

You're accurate on two of our targets at Blues.. but you make Blues fans look incredibly foolish with your third stupid suggestion.

RONALDINHO? and then you say we're after a "South African midfielder"

Come on mate, sort it out!


As for proper Birmingham rumours.

The boys are back from China tomorrow, so Eck will get to work bringing in his final few players (ive heard 3 or 4, plus maybe a domestic loan maximum).

These will be :

Moussa Dembele AZ Alkmaar £5m
Nathaniel Clyne Crystal Palace £2m£2.5m
Charles N'Zogbia Wigan Athletic £10m
Paul Konchesky Fulham £2m

The loanee is looking like Vladimir Weiss from Manchester City. (14)(20)

Ah yes, Ken Aguero himself!

Rumour has it that we couldn't afford the £40 million required to prise Kun Aguero from Atletico Madrid so we're instead bidding for his second cousin Ken, who plays for the Red Lion on a saturday afternoon. The transfer fee is set to be in the region of £5, four pints of Greene King and a bag of cheese and onion.(25)(17)

Hi Sheffield Wednesday fan. I am a news paper editor, who quiet frankly shouldn't be going on these sites. However you wished to know what a winding up order was. Basically it is an order served by the court that offers a company to produce assetts to HMRC within a certain time period and if the order is not followed the company will be forced into compulsory liquidation. This means that Sheffield Wednesday could realistically not be a club next season. However from what I gather it was just an accidental tax mix up so Wednesday should be fine. {editor's note – does it affect their transfers?}(6)(18)

There are 2 things on this website that annoy me, firstly, the fact that people ask for concrete evidence of the truth when it is a RUMOUR website, therefore it does not have to be true. Secondly, when people say "this is 100% fact" if so report it to a paper or something, don't post it on a website that people can believe what they want.

On to some Rumours:
Chelsea:
Ramires' signing will obviously involve some controversy as it is Chelsea. I think he will sign for near to £20million if he does sign.
Luiz from Benfica: Chelsea bid £27million supposedly but Benfica have told them to offer £33million.
Neymar looks like a good prospect and it seems he is another young Brazilian that Chelsea will sign this year. His family think that Europe is where his future lies. He scored 27 in 30 last season and that is at the age of 18.
Lukaku: 17 year old, nicknamed 'The New Drogba', Destined for Chelsea one day. He was spotted on a public tour of Stamford Bridge, in a Chelsea shirt.

These are just a few Targets I think Chelsea will try to sign this transfer window or next summer.

For half and hour ago, i heard from my source from Norway, that Purslow has been at Madrid, and put 40 mill pound on the table for Lopez and Aguero. They said that the deal will be sealed at Friday. After a long chat with Fernando, Purslow told him that Liverpool was going to bid on Lopez and Aguero. He used the bid on the players as a "bait" to keep Torres to stay at the club.
This also came as a shock on me, but my source is quite good, and I belive them.

What do you think of these rumours ed, have your source told you this?

A Norwegian Red ! {editor's note – my source only told me Purslow was there to discuss transfers, no mention of numbers or names. Actually I think he enjoyed leaving me to guess, I think he was quite amused by the thought of me being driven mad trying to figure it out.}(81)(63)

Liverpool to sign Raul this weekend on free (to help persuade Torres to stay)

Rangers to sign Marius Bilasco from Unirea Urziceni £2.2m

McGeady to Aston Villa (£5m raising to £8m depending on appearances, etc). Watch SPL alot and McGeady is hugely over rated but liked by O'Niell. The reason Celtic were keen to push through a transfer to Moscow as they were getting almost double the fee.

Man Utd to break transfer record and bid £3538m for Wesley Snieder from Inter and this will be only major first team signing. Sir Alex sees him as the long term solution in the middle of the park in alongside Fletcher with his midfield ageing. Man Utd will not bid for Ozil and will instead gamble and wait til January and sign him on a free contract.(31)(119)

 

 28 Jul 2010 01:11:55
LFC News.

Mascherano deal to Inter Milan will be finalised by the end of the week (£28m). RH will look to sign either Nigel de Jong (£16.5m) or Scott Parker (£10m) as his replacement.

Left Back signing will be one of Figueroa (£5.5m) or Salcido (£3m) only one will sign; the squad already has cover if necessary with Agger, Carragher, Johnson & Darby able to play there or promising left full backs Mavinga or Robinson to be given a chance.

The only other signing will be Stromsgodset's Marcus Pederson (£3.5m) to provide cover for Torres, but expect a surprise last minute move for Charles N'Zogbia if a bid for Babbel is excepted.

Drenthe First Choice left back Great signing at 23 years old

SWP Bargain buy apparently but will compliment Cole on the wings at Anfield

Crouch Still class in my opinion and at half price, how can we say no?

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.}

I thought that O'Neil just had a problem with Rafa. But it will be up to Milner in my opinion where he wants to go but i agree i don't think it will be LFC.

RANGERS NEWS. Gattuso has just signed a 2 year deal at ibrox reprtedly worth 15 grand a week. Teddybear85

Gattuso's agent :
"Gattuso wants to be an important player. Everyone can have doubts, which are then resolved through talks."
"Next week, the interview with Galliani will be important."

Bougie linked with Arsenal and a few more..the guy with the instincts, cuellar once said he was happy then moved to villa

Obertan link.. to the ppl who say we couldnt afford his wages we wouldn't have to pay his full wages, it would be whatever % was decided between clubs..but i think fergie wold use him, so it would maybe only b 6mnths if anything

Namouchi..jesus, gutted to hear this one, but its him and his agent mentioning returning to ibrox, but why would we buy/sign yet another central midfielder, makes little sense

well celtic signing spree still going on..like last season, too many new players don't blend quickly when changes are made..same as last season!

Liverpool:
I don't think anyone can plot what Roy hodgson is trying to do in the transfer market, tonight he tabled a bid of 2.5 million for Aston Villa full back. I thaught he was going to use martin Kelly as a back up right back, but he has been playing at cb, does this mean that Stephen darby will leaving the club.
Onto other players departing I think maxi has been told he won't be a regular starter so he will leave and return to his former club espanyol. I also think that martin skrtel will leave Liverpool to follow rafa to Inter, hodgson seems to be selling foreign players to buy English players.
Departures:
Javier Mascherano 30 million Inter Milan
Albert Riera 4.1 million Olympiacos
Martin Skrtel 12 million Inter Milan
Stephen Darby Loan Swindon
Yossi Benayoun 5.5 million Chelsea

ARSENAL No.1

How comes everyone has suddenly gone all out on the Akinfeev rumours? Just because they've been featured in a couple of papers hardly means anything solid.

What I do reckon, though:

Almunia: will be on his bike. The amount of interest in signing a goalkeeper is sure to shoot his confidence. If he were to stay, he would be worse between the sticks than last season. A few clubs (mainly Osasuna) have expressed interest. If Wenger can get any money for him he should take it in a heartbeat.

Schwarzer: this rumour has been going on for months. If it was going to happen it would have been done by now. The fact that a 2 million bid has been rejected seems to me like it's done and dusted. The man is 37 and Wenger has NEVER spent big for no good reason. He's slightly better than Almunia, but is not worth more than 2 million for the one season he'll get at the Emirates if he were to come.

Buffon: Who in their right mind honestly thought that one would happen? NO CHANCE.

Stekelenburg: good keeper for sure. Not up there with the best of the best, and imo not good enough for a team who say they're about to mount their strongest title challenge since 'The Invincibles'. Then again, he's still a hell of a step up from Almunia. If he can be bought for a fairly reasonable price (under 7 million) I wouldn't be surprised to see him as Manuel's replacement, but I still don't see him as the likeliest number one at the Emirates next season.

Akinfeev: Would love to see him in the Arsenal Keeper's jersey. Fantastic keeper and the fact he came out and said he would only join Arsenal or Man Utd, and was looking to move did make me have to remind myself that it's still INCREDIBLY unlikely Wenger will make a move. He'll carry a price tag of at LEAST 13 million, if not closer to 15 (or even 17). I can't see Wenger paying more than 10 for any keeper. Not to mention that the Russian is only 24 and Wenger seems to be keen on Szczesny's development (unfortunately for those of us who would like to see a solid keeper at Arsenal next season..). I can still dream though.

An unknown/Surprise: possible for sure. We all know Wenger knows how to pull one out of the bag.

Promotion: Fabianksi looked so bad last season I could not see how Wenger could justify giving him a run. But then again, Wenger does do some apparently crazy things and often they pay off. Szczesney still seems too young and inexperienced, and the latter for sure applies to Mannone. If a new keeper does come in to replace Almunia, I would expect one of Fabianski or Mannone (probably the latter) to be on their way this summer as three reserve first team goalkeepers does seem overkill, especially considering that Fabianski and Mannone would both need to be put on the 25 man squadlist.(38)(19)

"ARTETA IS TOO OLD, TOO INJURY PRONE AND IS AN UNCAPPED INTERNATIONAL PLAYER, MAYBE THIS IS WHY SEVILLA ONLY VALUED HIM AT 9M!"

You're kidding right? Who cares if he's an international player? That just means he has more on his mind than the club. He is injury prone, we all established that, but he's an absolutely amazing player.
Sevilla valued him at 9m because they couldn't afford the 1215m price tag on him. It's the same with Villareal, hoping his price tag would drop. Arteta would walk into any EPL club and start.

Also, try getting into Spain's midfield. He was looked at if Iniesta was injured but with Iniesta, Xavi and Fabregas, Arteta had no position. He's not a DM either so how can he play?(34)(20)

To all the people saying Sol Campbell is joining Newcastle you must be wrong, Daviebhoy assured and bet me £100 that Sol Campbell would be signing for Celtic.

Any news when he'll be putting pen to paper at Parkhead Daviebhoy so I can get a cheque sent off to you asap.

Thanks its been a pleasure.

It's being reported that LFC have agreed a fee for Aston Villa's Luke Young for 2.5 mill.

Is everyone confused as i am IF this true! What about you ED what you think? I hope it's just back up for a real left back or Roy has just made his 1st bad signing.

Blair Mayne YNWA {editor's note – he is a right back anyway. I am not sure I believe this report yet, after all it is only a report in the Guardian. All that has been said so far is that a club has made a bid for Young, but no club was named, the Guardian have decided it is Liverpool. But I am as bewildered as you by this one, no one I have spoken to made any mention of him as a possible. If he is signed, I can guarantee it is definitely Roy Hodgson's decision and his alone, he was not a player recommended by the scouts.}(33)(35)

With Campbell likely to complete a move to newcastle early afternoon on wednesday and djourou injured, arsenal are said to be in disarray and the grumblings on the blogs continue.

On the return from austria the club will begin it's transfer offensive. The talk is being in need of a goalkeeper and centre half with anything else added as a bonus in most cases.

A club of arsenal's size should not be aiming for stop gaps (i.e schwarzer, Campbell) and as good a signing as chamackh and potentially koscielny are, they do very little to inspire confidence among the more new age "iss/football manager", "i want it now" fan. And, to some extent the more ardent are starting to agree.

The Cesc saga all summer has only lessend the mood at the club, with some questioning his loyalty and also the captaincy. And, to be honest you'd have to really have those cesc autographs, pictures and posters at home to disagree otherwise.

The faith in the manager and team remains high even though we look alot weaker on paper than last season. It is also unbearable to watch whilst those, who are having a sniff below in the table, are spending and investing considerably.

A confidence boost would be nice wouldn't it!?

Hi ed. Do you really believe that Purslow went down to Spain to finish the deal with Aguero or Lopez that Rafa had begin with before he left?

A true RED {editor's note – I don't believe that Rafa had started a deal for either, I don't believe Purslow has tried to conclude a deal for Aguero. I think he is out of Liverpool's price range, unfortunately.}(19)(45)

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)


Great stuff, so you reckon Liverpool are gonna sign Aguero, one of the worlds best and sought after players in the world and he can't even get in the team. Lucas, Kuyt and Jovan can get in team play but no Aguero LOL!
As much as I'd love to see Aguero at Anfield, until there is concrete evidence please stop purring it on here. Some of us Liverpool fans are begining to get fed up of dreamer fans!(33)(36)

Deals to go ahead in the very near future:

Steven Defour or Mezut Ozil to Man Utd (only 1) I have been advised that United have pulled the plug on a £10 million bid for Soritis Ninis as they were made aware Defour is getting over his injury & Ozil is available & interested.

Luke Young to Liverpool aprox £3 million
Milner & Balotelli to City Combined aprox £60 million
Bellamy to Spurs
Shaun Wright Phillips to Liverpool
Javier Mascherano to Inter
Fernando Torres is still undecided on his future despite Liverpool claiming he is staying.
Emile Heskey to Blackburn
Federico Marchetti to Arsenal
Klaas Jan Huntelaar to Spurs

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


DeMn ACTUALLY CITY BOUGHT TEVEZ FOR 42M, 25.5M WAS WHAT UNITED HAD TO PAY FOR HIM, WHY DO YOU THINK TEVEZ SIGNED FOR CITY? HOW ABOUT A 4.2M SIGNING ON FEE AND 160K A WEEK WAGES!

this person u know, do they speak to mcgeady? cause as far as everyone else knows, only spartak want him n he won't go to russian, only epl. So, no bellamy then.

Rangers to sign

Mphela + khumalo 2m
jelavic 1.5m + add ons
Perea free (if jelavic deal falls through)
A lb as we only have papac at the moment

possible other signings depending on players leaving (bougy, mcgregor, whittaker, millar)

Liverpool will not make a £18m£20m bid for Lennon at all! Lennon hates Liverpool and has made that clear.
LFC also will not bid for Scott Parker either to replace Mascherano as the price tag on him is way too much.
Mascherano will not be missed and does no need to be replaced. The only thing Liverpool see as a priority is to sign a LB as they have no LB now Dossena and Insua have both gone.
Once Liverpool have signed a LB then and only then if there is time left in the transfer window will they make a bid for Arda Turan to replace Albert Riera.

Football365 claimed that David Gill has said that United have money and they may "spend". 1 minute he says there's no money then the next minute there is and it's the same story over and over. SAF has told the fans that any transfer rumours whether it be ins or outs is to be considered as just a rumour/paper talk.

Man City say they are 1 step closer to signing Balotelli but Balotelli's agent says they're not. If Balotelli is eventually signed.. that will be City's last signing this summer.

The FA are monitoring the Ramires to Chelsea transfer to make sure that Chelsea aren't breaking any transfer rules. Ramires will be the replacement for Joe Cole if he goes.

Haven't seen alot about Arsenal just lately although Sol Campbell should sign for Newcastle somtime this week if he successfully completes his medical.(20)(37)

First off can I just say that I do feel quite sad for the fellow lfc fans who may have thought the takeover was to be announced today, what with the cancelations of the stadium tours fir almost six hours did almost have me believing that something may have happened today even though I'm led to believe that something "substantial" will be announced either next week or the week after(see my post from last week)

But now that the "petty" details have been cleared in the course of due diligence by certain parties it just remains for the last couple if pieces of the jigsaw to fit into place.

Shiek Mohammed, with some help from amanda and some assoiciates have completed due diligence, mohammed old mate and former employee sameer has also had some input into the shiek's plans..much to the delight of a lot of fans he is being touted as a replacement for purslow, who despite trying to hold onto his job, is slowly finding himself losing a certain amount of respect from certain "suitors".

They have not been over impressed with not only his dealings on behalf of the club, but also with the way that he has "leaked" certain stories to the press, mostly via henry winter.
And as such do not wish for him to remain at the club after the purchase has taken place.

The other part of the story that also has reached me is that Martin Broughton may be asked to continue within his current role, because whilst it is well known that he is a Chelsea fan, he is more well known for his stupendous working ethos, that coupled with his post in the past on a certain race horse committee etc and the shield previous dealings with him..I stress that this part is PURE speculation, but the rumours apparently is that it is being talked about by certain quarters.

The interest from the Abu Dhabi camp is still active, and they are making strides as far as they are concerned, and some of the "other" people I have talked to expect them to emerge as the new owners..
Again if this part happens Mr Purslow again will find himself isolated, because similar reasons as stated above, plus also the fact that the abu dhabi "buyers" are in private blameing purslow for delaying certain parts of the takeover to justify his own means, past, present and maybe even in the future.
They are aware that he has links with tom hicks before and that he has a vested interest in lfc actually having the burden of debt around us because he has a nice little pay day each time a payment is "made" or "delayed" because the interest of the debt pays for a nice saville row suit doesn't it cecil?

There are other parties on the sides, again this is just those either after free publicity or they are just genuinely waiting to see what happens etc.

But time is ticking for g&h, the banks are getting nervous, and rbs knows that the British government will not continue to be silent on the way that the taxpayers money is not being repayed in many areas, lfc being one of them.

So to surmise..expect REAL news and some ACTUAL progression to be announced either next week or shortly after, but these things are happening.

Mr Broughton(35)(59)
