99% of people on this site need to start getting realistic. I truly would love to know where people are getting their information from or how they manage to create such pathetic rumours, like Ronaldinho to Glasgow..

I look out every day for transfer rumours over many sites and sources, some reliable, and these ones look ok.

Arsenal are looking at Mertesacker for an experienced CB
Man City will complete the signing of Mario Balotelli soon.
Aston Villa will not sell Luke Young as he doesn't wish to live in or around Liverpool, but who blames him.

Inter Milan will attempt to negotiate terms with Mascherano but it's just speculation out of control at the moment.

Tottenham are interested in Craig Bellamy, Redknapp wished to sign him from West Ham but being a greedy, Welsh tt he deicided City instead. But now looking at the line up for City next season, (Balotelli, Adebayour, Robinho, Tevez, Santa Cruz) there isn't much place for him.
Chelsea, I think the Ramires deal could have some issues attatched, though it looks quite likely, things can change very quickly.

Does anybody have any close or realistic information on West Ham transfers, like further information on Loic Remy signing?

I don't want to hear that someones nan works as a gardener for Zidane and that he's coming out of retirement, or Beckham having near killed himself working to get fit for Serie A now wishes to compete in the Premier League at the age of 35(116)(45)

Alberto Aquilani looks set to be on his way out of Anfield as Roy has his eye on Marek Hamsik.

I live in Lyon and Miralem Pjanić played for Lyon tonight against Nottingham Forest in a friendly, however this is his last game for the club as he is about to sign for Chelsea for £18.5 million.(47)(49)

Liverpool News
Liverpool and Stoke City are among a clutch of clubs competing to snap up exOlympique Lyonnais fullback Francois Clerc, according to L'Equipe.
verpool manager Roy Hodgson has been tipped to secure the signing of former England international Wayne Bridge in the coming days with sports bookmakers slashing odds on the former Chelsea star arriving at Anfield during the summer transfer window.
Liverpool are being linked with a fresh move for Napoli midfielder and Slovakian captain Marek Hamsik.
Young's move has fallen through and exect him to move to Fulham (he always wanted a move back to London) and Insua finally to Fiorentina.
Mach will leave but that will drag on and Maxi some time next week.

Manchester United Transfers Realistic

Hopefully we will get Mesut Ozil of Werder Bremen if not him then we will get Sotiris Ninis of Panathanaikos.
I would love to see the likes of Benzema, Torres, Sergio Ramos, Phillip Lahm, Girogio Chiellini all at the club, but unlike other United fans, i know we can't afford them and SAF won't buy all of these stars. So stop with all the bullst. We might get Defour of Standard Liege but i would prefer not as he might turn into another Hargreaves.
Manchester United Team 2010/2011
GK:Van der Sar/Kuszczak
RB: Neville/Rafael/O'Shea/Brown
CB: Ferdinand/Vidic/Smalling/Evans
LB: Evra/Rafael/Fabio
RM/RW: Park/Valencia/Obertan
CM: Ozil?/Carrick/Fletcher/Scholes/Anderson/Gibson
LM/LW: Giggs/Nani
ST: Rooney/Berbatov/Hernandez/Macheda/Welbeck

Cleverley may make some appearances in Cup games because he has had an impressive American tour and Welbeck may get loaned out. Other than that this seems like a decent squad but i do think that we need Ozil and a RB, but we will see what SAF has up his sleeves as David Gill said that they have the funds to splash on one worldclass player.

Leicester City news:
My friend who works in the coop in Enderby just served Marlon Harewood who has recently been released by Aston Villa.
Will he be signing?

he has already signed for a turkish club and is on 40k a week belive it or not(5)(27)

 

 29 Jul 2010 22:44:32
Southampton fc to sign Darius Vassell tommorow from Turkish side Arkanguru. Also on his way to saints in the next week is Bristol Rovers striker Chris Lines in a deal worth around £1 million. David Connolly set to be placed on transfer list.
_

Why would Connolly be placed on the transfer list, when he was only given a new deal a few weeks ago?
And when Alan Pardew says he needs ANOTHER striker, to go with the 3 we already have.
Please explain your reasoning.(8)(15)

 

 29 Jul 2010 22:37:50
Captevila is in talks with liverpool about the vacant leftback. Remy's deal is still to be completed as West ham grow closer to a deal. (Ed the ball's note – You know if Rafa was still around that wouldn't be a bad shout!}(26)(26)

My mate works at Portsmouth football club and said we're thinking of bringing Paul Wotton down here.

I hope not as he can't even make THEIR first team, but this is the second time I've been told this now. He wouldn't say anything else other than we are looking at him with a view to a deal.


Why would Paul Wotton join Pompey, when he is at Southampton, where there are better wages, and where he is happy?(7)(15)

 

 29 Jul 2010 22:42:01
Exeters Ryan Harley hands in a transfer request, likely joining a championship club.

im afraid mate hate to say it harley looks likely playing for the dirty pilgrims next season.(10)(4)

 

 29 Jul 2010 22:42:27
To the mentalist or half mentalist who wrote about Wolves to see Sylvan & Meirhoffer to Blackpool , Meirhoffer yes as he is no longer required ( no pun intended he is very tall ) Sylvan has been given a life line by Mick and judging by recent comments Mick may be holding on to Keogh ? though he does need to offload players to permanently sign Mancienne so fingers crossed the sale of Meirhoffer can facalitate that. Come on me babbies ! Irish Wolf(9)(6)

 

 29 Jul 2010 22:35:39
In the shock of transfer market history, Chelsea are about to sign DJ Campbell from Leicester from right under the noses of Blackpool for £2.5 million on a two year contract worth around £25,000 a week. I AM GOOD FRIENDS WITH CHARLIE ADAMS OF BLACKPOOL WHO IS GOLF BUDDIES WITH DJ, AND HE EXPECTS THE NEWS TO BE ANNOUNCED BY MONDAY 1PM.(19)(50)

 29 Jul 2010 22:23:50
Looks like bellamys joining fulham. David James off to bristol .Campbell away to Newcastle, Bullard a non starter. Perhaps Lenny should keep things a little more low key when trying for players, rangers have probably had a few knock backs that won't see the light of day. What's the deal with Bellamy, no doubting his ability but he never seems to last anywhere he plays.(23)(18)

 

 29 Jul 2010 22:25:02
You heard it here first.

Charlton to sign Freddie Eastwood and Rowan Vine to overcome striking problems of just one professional.

Steve Kabba is also strongly linked to sign on a free.

Also heard from very good source, best friend with Mark Kinsella, that the addicks are going to make a last ditch attempt to bring in Jon Ostembor in aswell as offering James Mulley and Jon Fortune contracts.


Kabba signed for Barnet Recently.
Otsemobor signed for Sheffield Wednesday recently.
At least do the research.(2)(16)

 29 Jul 2010 22:02:41
Rangers rumours. I said two weeks ago that Rangers will not sign anyone till August no need to repeat reasons but bank/ wages related etc.If they had persuaded anyone to sign it would not take place till August. Rangers have a substantial pot available after Aug 1st. up to 15 million will be available. They know who they want no one else has a clue. waste of time speculating cause Ranmgers always play mind games with evereyone see if I am right? Yorkie Lad

Celtic rumours = thunder has disappeared. Possibly short term Bring back Daviebhoy..(26)(17)

 

 29 Jul 2010 22:05:39
To the guy who said this:

29 Jul 2010 09:28:44
Blackpool are after 2 Wolves players. The first which has been widely reported is Ebanks Blake, and he will sign for the seasiders within the next week.

The other is not Maierhoffer as has been rumoured, but they are in fact making enquiries about Keightly. Holloway is a big fan of the winger and he has made enquiries about whether McCarthy would let him go for the right price.

FACTAMUNDO

S.M.

Neither kightly or ebanks blake will leave this summer. kightly has almost overcome his injuries and will be a big player this season when fit as he is quality, and there is no way we would want to sell him and certainly no way he would want to leave!

Ebanks is been given a second chance and as we are short on strikers there is no chance he is leaving, certainly no chance either would consider blackpool either!(9)(8)

 

 29 Jul 2010 21:59:55
I fully expect these deals to go through.
Craig BellamyMan City to Celtic

Mario BallotelliInter Milan to Man City

 29 Jul 2010 22:00:08
Heard on the grape vine that hedgehogson is waiting for the argy mercenary to run off to benitez for money to come through (26m max) and will either bid for tom huddleston for 14m or a cheeky bid for di rossi for 10m with aquilani going back to inter! Heard he is also looking at matt taylor (6m) of bolton for left back or a move back home for warnock (10m).
Arda Turan will hopefully come in with a bid for conor wickham (6m raising to 11m) for the future and loan back to ipswich for the season! Editor what do you think of matt taylor at lb?
lfc forever {Ed the Balls note – A great left foot, a solid player for a team like Bolton}(6)(35)

 

 29 Jul 2010 21:57:41
Its crucial as a united fan that Cesc signs for Barcelona, not just because it will be funny watching all the Goons burst into tears but Mesut Ozil is a Barcelona fan and if Barca fail to get Cesc they will turn their attentions to Ozil, so for fck sake Wenger answer the phone to the dirty tapping up b@stards!

United to end up signing Lindegaard, Annan & Henrique Ganso(22)(24)

 

 29 Jul 2010 21:57:47
To the person who said they saw marlon harewood in enderby. He lives not far from there in desford(5)(13)

Everyone knows purslow was in madrid sorting out the signings of 2 players that benitez started, pretty confident 1 was drenthe, does anyone know which the other was, v.d.v maybe, also does anyone know we lost more games with masch last year than without him, so good riddance, anyone else think we will get parker(10)(23)

 

 29 Jul 2010 21:57:12

I reckon mr wenger will buy 3 more players (better hurry up ! :p)

OR
1 goalkeeper (marchetti or stekelenburg)
1 centre back (Tasci or mertesacker preferably Tasci)
& 1 Defensive midfielder (De Jong 8m or gago 8m or possibly tasci as cover for CB as well)(29)(13)

Colin Doyle to sign for Plymouth Argyle by Wednesday for a fee of 750k also Plymouth to make bids for japenese Forward Shinji Okazaki and Gillingham's Simeon Jackson, Plymouth will also be offlaoding some more players however Steve MacLean will NOT be leaving Plymouth Argyle after impressing in preseason.also set to offer contracts to lee molineux and tony capaldi

Simeon Jackson has already signed for Norwich and it seems likely that Capaldi will sign for Palace.

extreamly sorry about the simeon jackson one forgot hed moved but even though capaldi looks like going to palace we offered him a contract(3)(16)

 

 29 Jul 2010 21:49:01

 29 Jul 2010 21:49:04
The big signing at Leeds United will be a Premier League Striker, FACT, Defonluso, Phillips and Smith been linked, i don't think we have a chance with smith, Leroy Lita also linked. Leeds will also sign Brucey tomorrow and a defenive midfielder! As number 4 need to be filled in the squad list.(19)(17)

 

 29 Jul 2010 21:49:14
Rangers possible starting 11.
firstly to previous poster on starting 11 theres no way davis will be defensive mid. i've heard bougherra will be played at right back this season. and why would we sign 2 african players for around 4m combined to sit them on the bench.

Charlton are on the verge of signing free agent Stern John.
Leeds are very interested in Kevin Phillips who has only one year left on his contract and Birmingham are willing to sell.
Benjani to TOTTENHAM! Yes Tottenham, Harry had him at Pompy and needs a decent back up striker and said there was at least one player who is out of contract that hes looking at and that's Benjani.
Heskey to West Ham (another striker West Ham will sign uncappable of scoring).
Celtic striker Cillian Sheridan looks likely to join PNE on loan.
David Nugent is urging Burnley to pay the £2.5 million Portsmouth want for him but not sure wether they will or not.
Jimmy Bullard to Sunderland as they can afford his expensive wages and need a player of his quality.
Ed, feel free to comment.(21)(17)

To the Guy that wrote:

Just been called by a friend from Glasgow Airport, and he spotted Ronaldinho getting his luggage, maybe he is heading for one of the two Glasgow Clubs?

Milan President stated the other day that the club would NEVER sell him unless the player himself wanted to leave, so hes probably taking his summer break cuz the shores of BRAZIL are pretty bland. But in saying that Robinho was a Chelski player sun eve then in a man citeh top mon morn and Fergie would'nt sell Madrid a cold.

ARSENAL

To be honest i think arsenal will sign 3 or 4 more players 1 keeper 1 or 2 centre backs and 1 centre midfielder =P

marchetti, schwarzer, stekelenburg and akinfeev all look likely and would rather stekelenburg or akinfeev but i think marchetti or stekelenburg are most likely to sign due to low signing fees

tasci, mertesacker, richards and diakhate (not jagielka , taylor , or cahill) tasci and mertesacker seem more likely choices but would love to see richards at arsenal its a 50/50 chance really due to squad sizes at eastlands

de jong gago and arteta all rumoured but gago is available on the cheap due to khedira signing at real and alonso there already de jong is my preffered choice(even after his nightmare tackle in final) and available cheap enough too + Cesc for one more year to win a trophy

this is my preffered formation if these come true



Stekelenburg
Sagna Mertesacker Vermaelen Clichy
Song
Nasri Fabregas Arshavin
Van Persie Chamakh
Bench:Szczesny Koscielny Tasci JET Wilshere Ramsey Bendnter

To whoever said this:

Asamoah Gyan to sign for the Clarets!

Asamoah Gyan has just been spotted in the Park View Chippy, across from Turf Moor, ordering a minimix to celebrate signing on the dotted line with the Clarets.

It's a signing that the fans of a hardworking, headless chicken centre forward are more than pleased with.

Some fans are already labelling him the Ghanaian Ian ThomasMoore.

.. Why would one of the World Cup's best, most succesful players go to a Championship side, if he did, it wouldn't be Burnley. He'll most likely go to a midPrem side, likely to be Brum, not Burnley!(5)(36)

Rangers FC

Goodwillie, is a no go, not good enough for Champions League.
Gattuso, maybe next year once his contract expires.

INS

Benalouane (CB), St Ettienne, Bougherra's replacement.
Or
Khumalo(CB), South African impressive in world cup.

Eagles(RW), Renegotiations, Smiths first choice.

Jelavic(ST), Unlikely, Champ League cup tied.
or
Mphela(ST), South African, would do well in SPL.

Expect Smith to pay Sir Alex Ferguson a vist after both tours are finished, one or to loanings(e.g Macheda) to gain Champions league experience.

The last person to leave Rangers this Summer will be Bougherra if a high offer is put on the table (over 7 mill). Kenny Miller is not going anywhere as his shin splints make him Unsellable.

Some players are interested in Rangers Peter Lovenkrands, Lee Miller and Jonothan Utaka, unlikely to happen but worth a shout.

I don't expect Utaka to sign for Rangers. He is on seriously big wages at Portsmouth and has been touting himself for a move since the turn of the year. Is he any good anyway?

Rather we signed someone younger like Nikica Jelavić.

Bongani Khumalo deal looks positive though.(30)(21)

BREAKING NEWS !!! W.B.A!! FACT!!

Skysports.com understands West Brom are closing in on the signing of Hull City goalkeeper Boaz Myhill.

Premier League new boys West Brom have been searching for a new goalkeeper all summer and after being rebuffed in their attempts to sign Preston's Andy Lonergan they have switched their attentions to Myhill.

West Brom are believed to have agreed a fee with Hull for the former Villa keeper and they have been granted permission to open talks with the Welsh international.

Myhill is set to travel to the Hawthorns on Friday to hold talks and undergo a medical before finalising his move.

Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo is keen to bring in an experienced custodian to provide competition and cover for Scott Carson

Snejider would rather go to united than city and Schweinsteiger no way, and the lights of hangeland, he will not join liverpool because it said in the RH contract that he can't take any fulham players & Parker won't sell parker and ashley young would only go to better teams such as man utd, chelsea or liverpool.(14)(36)

So many on this thread but be plane spotters as nearly everyone seems to spot players at airports.

Anyway Stoke have cooled their interest in Santa Cruz as a previous target is firmly back on the radar. Carlton Cole again?

Bellamy is close to agreeing terms with Stoke on a year loanin fact it's the %age term with Man City that is the sticking point but not a million miles apart.

Redknapp has offered Bentley to Stoke again after he rejected an unnamed Prem club.

Arsenal have made a better offerer for Sorensen. He's not automatic first choice next season anyway.

As I mentioned last week, Sheff Utd want Tonge but have said today they can't afford him.

West Brom are interested in Kitson (please let this happen)

Carl Dickinson will choose between 3 CCC clubs in the coming days. ( He's nowhere near good enough for the Prem, sorry)

Southampton fc to sign Darius Vassell tommorow from Turkish side Arkanguru. Also on his way to saints in the next week is Bristol Rovers striker Chris Lines in a deal worth around £1 million. David Connolly set to be placed on transfer list.

The Benjani and VAssell rumours are a bunch of waffle and neither will happen, we wanted lines but Bristol rovers didn't wanna let him go so I think that train has passed with Carterlooking likely to be the midfield signing we need to bolster this position with only Paul wotton as any form of decent cover. Shirt numbers where released today with 8 and 11 missing, we are after striker and a winger also 13 hasn't been assigned with biawolski can't be bothered to spell check name awaiting to sign a contract

Possible signings with this in mind

Nathan Tyson, Matt Phillips, Adam le fondre, Darren carter

Can't remember the other wingers been linked but pardrew will defiantly brining in at least 2 new signings before the transfer window closes, simply we need to replace Antonio and papa waigo as we are currently lacking the killer pace

Chelsea will land Brazilian Ramires from Benfica either this summer or next in a £25million deal.

Arsenal to bid for Cagliari Goalkeeper Fabio Marchetti who is to be sold by the Italian club meaning that Mark Schwarzer will remain at Fulham. The Gunners are also keen on German defensive duo Per Mertesacker and Serdar Tasci.

Manchester City will sign James Milner in the next two weeks as they are ready to match Aston Villa's £30million evaluation. City will also look to trim their squad down to the new 25mansquad requirements for the BPL.

Fulham's new manager Mark Hughes' first signing will be Craig Bellamy who has great affection for Sparky, he's expected to cost around £5million, the Cottagers will also make a £8.5million offer for Bellamy's teammate Stephen Ireland who wants to quit Eastlands.

Liverpool to sign Luke Young for £2.5million in next 48 hours. Hodgson is also courting Nigel de Jong but may be put off by the £14million evaluation, Liverpool also interested in Stilyan Petrov as a replacement for Javier Mascherano. Other players on Anfield radar are Royston Drenthe and Klass Jan Huntelaar.

Tottenham interested in Ajax forward Luis Suarez but unwilling to meet their valuation of the player. Ajax holding out for up to £30million. Harry Redknapp keen to offload the likes of David Bentley, Alan Hutton, Jermaine Jenas, Robbie Keane and Jamie O'Hara to raise funds.

Sunderland will battle Marseille for the services of Charles N'Zogbia.

West Ham will sign Mikael Silvestre on a free transfer from Arsenal, Hammers also remain interested in Ajax winger Miralem Sulejmani.

Clive Platt joined this morning for a nominal fee thought to be around the £50k mark. Aidy Boothroyd has signalled his intention to bring a Premiership striker to the club within the next day or two.

My uncle is one of the Groundsman at Thorp Arch (Leeds) and regularly speaks to Staff / Players. He has told me the following:

Ken Bates is softening up his Striking Transfer options, after Grayson has told him how impressed he has been with Davide Somma in training / preseason. Grayson is set to meet with Bates this afternoon to discuss his views on the current squad and whether further striking additions really need to be made. The impending fitness result of Snodgrass will have an impact on this. Grayson is however wary also due to Gradel missing the first few games of the season through suspension

Alex Bruce passed a medical yesterday and is apparently in the process of putting pen to paper early this afternoon. Deal expected to be announced later today

Leroy Lita is NOT coming to Elland Road as a number of players have already mentioned about his arrogant attitude which players believe will cause aggrovation within the ranks

Two of the Brazilian trialists have impressed, however Grayson will be looking to loan them out to lower league clubs to gain experience(33)(37)

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.

All these rumours about Ken Aguero are not true. He hasn't retired, I know this is FACT as I am a trainee at my local club and I trained in the same team as him last night. Training went very smooth and we are expecting him to sign by 1pm on 1st August for 10 packets of Beef Monster Munch, 3 crates of scrumpy jack and a twix, the team have even stopped stadium tours for that day too. He seems happy as this is best offer he has recieved so far but told a friend of a friend's dad that he's unhappy at all the rumours being spread the last few days. I hope this happens but I maybe dreaming, fingers crossed.(37)(37)

I have heard some news on Dani Pacheco. I heard Real Sociadad and Betis are planning on signing the impressive Liverpool youngster. I have also heard that Leeds are planning a loan bid for the striker. Personally a loan move to a club like Leeds will be perfect for him. Liverpool and Leeds have a great history and similar fans. Pacheco would learn a lot there.

The news regarding Luke Young is that another English club "BELIEVED" to be Liverpool. This is probably not true and I don't beleive for a second the Petrov rumour either. Why would we sign aging players? Aquilani and Lucas are better than Petrov. We have plenty of RB cover and Johnson won't be playing RW next season.

I have heard some rumours about Darrent Bent from Sunderland but after what Rafa tried to do with Kenwyn Jones last season I can't see a deal been done. Personally I would like to see us sign a marque striker and Connor Whickam for the future.

I want to know ed, who do you want to see at anfield next season?

utter rubbish. after his poor first spell and subsequent actions king will never be allowed inside the city ground again, never mind signing for us. on top of that tony finnigan is also persona nongrata at the CG. we spent many years getting rid of overpaid deadwood with poor attitude, we're not suddenly going to start signing them again.

My understanding is that 2 offers were submitted by the deadline and that these are currently being scutinised by the club. I got that from someone who actually works for the club and I also have to say that even they are relying on rumour. Noone outside of an extremly small and tight circle has any idea at all other than gossip. None of this business is being dealt with or discussed on club property, none of the paperwork is being filed, photocopied read or even seen by any of the administrative staff. Tony Evans and TalkSport almost certainly know only that. The editor will I am certain confirm this.

Hi people, losing faith with lack of quality singings at sunderland this summer. can anyone shed any light on the situation PLEASE, ED included. thank you very much. rumours welcome.

Yes certainly id be more than happy to shed some light on the situation..Quite simply Sunderland do things in a very proffessional way, unlike some other clubs in the premier league. Transfer targets very very rarely get revealed at Sunderland untill theyre actually signed. Furthermore SAFC are not prepared to engage in crazy auctions for overated players or players past their prime..a recent example being their reluctance to pay Sol Campbell 30 grand a week for a 35 yr center back. Only occassionally does the odd snippet of information get out..the latest being the alleged near signing of David Bentley(15)(11)

Leeds to Sing Alex Bruce from Ipswich before the weekend

Is it a new song?

I have never heard leeds fans sing "Alex Bruce from Ipswich before the weekend"

On a serious note I have heard the same myself but I heard the deal will be all wrapped by the middle of next week.

Back to United, They are looking at a number of players Ozil , Defour , Ninis , Sneijder (Believe it or not) but will not make a move for any yet.

I believe the Ninis fee has been agreed but SAF is holding off on finalizing anything until the Ozil situation is sorted.

Only one of these will come, my money is on Ozil but if United get priced out of a move for him they will buy Ninis which I reported some time ago, as the room for the medical was booked with a greek interpretuer and from what my source tell me the move is still a real possibility SAF dragging his heels as he waits on Ozil.

Also this was mentioned to me yesterday but I didn't believe it, still don't, but seemingly AC Milan and Bayern are interested in Berbs(In some tabloids today so defo Bullst). But as of yet no offer has been made but Im told United will sell for 20 million Euro's no less.

Make of it what you will.(10)(18)

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

in response to

Maicon is still at Inter .but if he was to join Real madrid Mourinho has said Ramos is a better centre back than right back so he would play him there with
Maicon at right back .so theres no chance of Ramos joining Man utd.sorry to pis on your parade

mourinho may have said that to make ramos feel assured but we will make a bid for himcarvalho has been heavily linked to real and they already have pepe and albiol .ramos is much more attacking minded.so again i say we WILL make bid for him .comment if u support man utd m8 or bother about ur own team .the thought of playing for man utd may well interest ramos

real madrid spent 27m on ramos in 2005 from sevilla. i'm just guessing that is about £22m. since 2005 he has become one of the worlds best right backs. real madrid won't sell him but if they did he would cost £30m AT LEAST. although united do have funds they won't spend that much on a RB when they already have rafael, neville, brown and o'shea. united will buy ONE more player who will probably be an attackingmid: OZIL 15M OR NINIS 11M(21)(22)

DAVID BECKHAM looks like he may be returning to the premier league with West Ham. West Ham have been in contact with his agent (for a couple of months now) and have discussed a possible move to Upton Park. I hope this is true as I would like to see a topquality player as Beckham going to Upton Park! However, I am unsure as to whether it is one of Sullivans methods of selling season tickets??

Other West Ham Targets:

Laurent Bonnart (free agent)
Mikael Silvestre (free agent)
Mohammed Abdellaoue (£2m)
Francois Clerc (free agent)
Miralem Sulejmani (loan)

West Ham are also trialing a large number of keepers to add more competition for Rob Green as the clubs only other keepers are relitivley inexperienced.

It has also been announced that it would cost West Ham between £150million and £180million to convert the Olympic Stadium into a football facility. Complete waste of time in my opinion as West Ham have the appkication to turn Upton park into a 55k seater, and would only cost around £50£60million!!(12)(43)

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!''

I mentioned names to prove a point that i am in fact ''clued up''.

They sell advertising space meaning that they speak to commercial managers and chairmen of clubs.
Trevor Watkins is also the F.A mains lawyer in transfer dealings, hence his now noninvolvment of Bournemouth FC.
I like Liverpool as a club but i laugh when i see you deluded fans making a mockery of your great club by posting rubbish.

Fact is you will not sign big names, this is the reason you are going for Luke Young.

Get real.(15)(18)

To the idiot that said on sky sports news james off to bristol city when just checked sky sports website and there is nothing on site?. what a tool, if going to say hard facts, at least get it right instead of just making up a story not even a rumour if a total lie, and james meeting lennon on saturday so somehow don't think he decided anything after all it was his agent that contacted celtic fc. so at least get some facts first before spowt bull(18)(13)

The now legendary Ken Aguero has unfortunately decided to hang up his Gola boots down at the Tommy Lane Playing fields changeys and is turning his attention to the vacant managerial post at Fulham. Expect to see a steak and kidney pie and 3 bottles (2ltr) of white lightening cider to be the deal he was holding out for. Add ons include 20 fifty pence pieces for the fruit machine / pool table if he pulls out a good result for the season.

>> Ken Aguero has been offered one last chance to shine after being knocked back by Fulham. Rangers have offered the Crowne Plaze Hotel star a 2 year contract that includes the annual allocation of crisps set aside for Kris Boyd as well as a new shiny pair of boots from any of the JJB/Rangers outlets.(16)(11)

 

 29 Jul 2010 11:45:45
Just spotted the legend that is ken aguero buying a bacon sarnie and 20 embassy no 1 at burtonwood services on the m62, he was disguised as a workman and
he was with 3 other men who were also dressed in work clothes, could these men have been officials from liverpool or manure ? I suspect a contract may have been signed, as one of the men clearly had a betting shop pen behind his right ear ! jongyb(21)(12)

Ken Aguero has ruled out a move to Liverpool as there is breaking new that Ken prefers salt and shake and Liverpool couldnt afford his demands of 3packets a week.So now it is believed that he will go to Manchester city as they just about have enough money to give him his 3packets a week.

Re: Aguero just to set the record straight, his real name is Gio Aguero and he has recently been knighted by the Queen. He bears a strinking resemblance to Ken Barlow and has thus been given the nickname Ken. From now on he will be known as Sir Gio Ken Aguero.

On another matter, as I have previously mentioned, Ferguson is only looking at 3 possibilities on the transfer front [one in Italy and two from Spain]. Not all 3 will be bought, of course, but they form his shortlist. Possible development in next few days that is why Fergie made his Glazers are good for Utd declaration yesterday

I told ye yesterday that the Luke Young deal was hanging in the balance because of wages and now LFC have told him to go back to Villa and sort it out but he only has 48hrs to resolve his issues with Villa or deal is off , Hodgson will then turn his attention to Konchesky and Aurelio is deciding on a pay as you play deal.

There will be no big name transfers coming in until Masch is sold Torres has been promised the funds will go towards an attacker partner LFC will not be getting another defensive midfielder instead they will rely on Lucas and Spearing(15)(13)

 

 29 Jul 2010 12:04:43
The sale of Javier Mascherano is now riding on the sale of Mario Balotelli. If Balotelli does not leave then Monster Masch will remain at anfield. If this happens then it will come as a huge blow to Hodgeson, who was hoping to generate funds from the sale to buy an attack minded player, possibly Arda Turan, and drop Stevie G back to centre midfield where he belongs. Maxi isn't going anywhere, forget Aguero, (and his brother), and Fernando Torres is staying at Liverpool, end of. Anything new ed??(29)(10)

There are so manny rumours concerning Aguero moving to Liverpool i feel like i have missed out on something. I keep updated with the New on SSN, Liverpool Website and Liverpool Echo and although i accept this is not comprehenisve, having discovered this site in the past two days the links with Aguero have surprised and confused me.

Which one mate ken or sergio?


Theres just one, Sergio Aguero. His nickname is 'Kun'. There is no Ken. Cept in Corrie ;)
:
Ed, as one LFC fan to another, thanks for putting this one up mate it's made my morning!! LOVL!

You should also perhaps point out to our friend that his information is not strictly correct. My sources inform me that there is rumoured to be a Dave Aguero, a Steve Agureo and a Bob Aguero all living in Argentina.(10)(10)

 29 Jul 2010 11:18:46
For the editor

Can you put a note after the leeds fans commenting that matt oakley is in talks and going to sign. He isn't and hasnt even been approached by leeds. Ive just spoken to his brother who i play football with at st neots town and myself being a leeds fan wanted to find out the truth

Other leicester news is that the players havent really spoken to sousa, they are still unaware of his plans for the exisiting squad as he has been keeping his cards close to his chest and assessing the squad over the last weeks. Supposidly from my mate after the game against sunderland this weekend the players will get an idea of the plans for the season and could see some activity next week

To this guy > 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.

i havent seen the pictures kind of but i was at the brittania with cole walking into the stadium, he stopped took a few pics, sum1 shouted are u signin and he replied "all will be revealed very soon". does that answer anything, im sorry to prove u wrong but ur gonna jus have 2 believe me.


You claimed he was posing with lots of fans previously but oddly not ONE of the alleged pics has made it on to the internet mmmmmmmm. Something smells funny.

No question he is on Stoke's radar but making up things doesn't help.

O'Neil to leave Boro for Stoke IF we meet their asking price.

As frustration mounts at Arsenal due to lack of signings Arsene is ready to splash the cash!

A deal for MArchetti has been agreed with Cagliri for 7.5million euros about £6.4million, the players agent and arsenal have already discussed personal terms. Hopefully by saturday his signature will be confirmed.

Ivan Gazidis has returned from Germany with excellent news for gunners fans. He has agred a £11.6million deal to bring Mertersecker from Bremen and a £9.1million plus add ons of £1.7million for Tasci from Stuggart. These two superb defenders will replace Campbell and Gallas.

This will bring Arsenals total Spend this summer to
Marchetti £6.4mill
Koscienly£8.5mill
Mertersecker£11.6mill
Tasci£9.1mill
total spent £35.6million

Eduardo £6.1million
Almunia £2million

£45million budget35.6+6.1+2= £17.5million which will be used in January for either Ozil or Harzard.

Starting 11 Arsenal Football Club 2010/11
Marchetti
sagna mertersecker vermaelan clichy
Nasri fabregas song arshavin
van persie chamakh

bench:flapianski, koscienly, tasci, djouru, walcott, denilson, diaby, bendtner, nortveit, gibbs, JET, Frimpong, Mannone, Wilshere

To the guy that said:

28 Jul 2010 23:48:05
Ozil will sign for Man united.

The reason why you havn't heard anything about this on sky sports or manchester united website is because they will do it in private so man city don't hear anything about it and if chelsea find out they will try and bid for him and say as a excuse like it was a replacement for ballack but the thing is ballack doesn't need to be replaced because he hardley got in the team anyway because of lampard, So you will only find out about if it is real when they have actually sign him.>>>>I hope United do sign Ozil, as United need a player of his nature and with the lack of CM due to injuries, age and plain not good enough..

as for the Ballack not getting a game last season?
i gather you did not check his record for the season, as he played 44 games for Chelsea in 2009/10 and Lampard playing 50 (looks like Lampard was injured for 44 games and Chelsea playing a 'modern times record' of 94 matches). But Ozil is not the same sort of player as Ballack is now. (talking German replacements) They would more likely be intrested in Khedira (i know. not entirely German as Ozil) (the person who replaced him in the Germany side in the world cup). Or better still and i hope this doesn't happen 'Schweinsteiger'.(18)(25)

 

 29 Jul 2010 09:53:27
Regarding the Nemeth situation..

Anybody shed any insight? Ed maybe from one LFC fan to another? {editor's note nobody I have spoken to has a clue what has happened with him. I am getting worried now as he does seem to be persona non grata all of a sudden.}



I'm pretty sure that he picked up a serious injury while on loan at AEK that laid him up for mopnths so he's probably still just hanging out with the physio to up to par again.

Before his injury, AEK had been looking to make the deal permanent so this could still be on the cards.

I honestly don't think he has filled up to the potential that was touted out of Melwood, kind of reminds me of the Neil Mellor one, he was amazing in the youth & reserve ranks but never cut it at the top level.

Leeds expected to make 34 signs within the next 10 days,

Sanchez Watt (on Loan) is almost certain to be one after no Premier League interest,
Leeds want Jay Simpson on Loan but Arsenal want to sell despite what it says in the papers no one is willing to meet Arsenals valuation on him that includes QPR & Nottingham Forrest, Jay Emmanuel Thomas is also wanted (on loan) it's thought Leeds will sign 2 of the 3.Arsene Wenger decides where the young Arsenal stars go on loan if at all, in respect to Jay Emmanual Thomas it was decided in June that he would spend the season on loan at Doncaster after a successful spell last season however he has had such a good preseason at Arsenal he will be part of the first team squad.(15)(18)

I've just been to Citys stadium to pick up my ticket for the Valencia friendly on the 7th and there was a bit of commotion at the main entrance. A few fans went over to see what was going on. There was a guy in the main entrance being welcomed by a few staff, I believe one of them was Brian Marwood (who I can't stand by the way). We asked the security guys who it was and they said they didn't know, but a journo that was standing at the side said that it was Fernando Torres' agent. Now, don't shoot the messenger here, I am only saying what I saw and heard. He was obviously someone important for all the bother that waas made of him but does anyone have a clue who this was?(9)(25)

The answer to the question re. Nemeth is that he is currently injured. I think he has cracked ribs which he sustained in the international friendly between Germany and Hungary just before the World Cup.

He's definitely the best of the prospects we have (including Pacheco). He is similar to Fowler in his style of play and how LFC could do with a Fowler right now!(20)(5)

My friend here in sunny Belfast is Connor Wickhams cousin. They say he has mentioned Liverpool have made an enquiry as to his availability.

Just to burst your bubbles

To everyone who says that Mascherano will be going to
Inter Milan you are mistaken

His preferred destination is Juventus
So I think that Liverpool will either sell for the highest offer which could be Man City which could even leave him at Anfield until the next transfer window if he does not choose to move to City

Or he could land up at his beloved Juventus in a total deal of around 23m (cash , players however)
Mascherano wants to be a Juventus player

Liverpool have not assigned a squad number to Insua departure looks very possible (check the official LFC website)

Any comments ed

Shezypool

Yeah ok Mascherano isn't a loyal player and wants to go, but again with all the man city fans saying torres to city, WHY WHY would mascherano go to city if they in the same boat as liverpool football wise and when he quite clearly wants to play in another country?!

Hay Ed, Any news on Conor Wickham, through your contacts, I know im always banging on about the boy but hay i really rate him and would hate to see him go anywhere else. Roy wants to buy British and wants people who would play with pride (Which was good to hear)and being a liverpool fan he would be perfect. Even if it meant him staying there to progress and get first team action. Quality striker.

I have heard that we are looking into the possibility of signing Francois Clerc (Any Opinion Ed). Rumours recently suggest that he has an injury and cannot play anymore. He feels Lyon who didn't want him to leave decided to start some rumours of there own. Cleric has come out to deny any truth in these rumours. He is available for free and plays Left or Rightback.

In Rafa i trusted,
In Roy i have full faith.
YNWA.

P.S please please can we have a diffrent page for SPL Rumours im sick to the back teeth reading pointless political arguments about whos better. Im Irish and i hear quite a bit of crap about history. The history is Celtic are a Scottish team playing in Scotland the only connection left with Ireland is so they don't loose out on a very lucritive market over here. In relation to the rangers fans your stadium is a shhole and your squad has as much meat on it as Yossi Benayoun. My point is your both rubbish and would be mid championship at best. Keep up the good work ed and remember NEW PAGE FOR SPL.

Quigz23 {editor's note – I haven't heard anything new regarding Wickham. I did hear the same as you regarding Clerc, Lyon are making use of his known injury problems to make sure they keep him (or whichever French team it is he plays for anyway).}(9)(19)

Forget Benzema, Annan, Lahm etc this will be the only signing this window which will be seriously worked on. If Utd don't get him there will be no other arrivals!!(34)(27)

By the looks of things the deal for Milner to Man City is going to fall through due to the fact that MON has said its either £30 Million in cash ( not literally ) or no deal. Also he looks happy being with friends Stewart Dowing and Ashley Young which can be seen on the photo's on the club wesbite. This is good news to Villa fans and the club as he was a key man last season and being the player he is always wanting to improve he will have a better season next.

Sorry to all the Liverpool fans thinking the Young there getting is Ashley as he going to sign a new contract with the club keeping him here until 2014 when the team arrives back from Portugal. The Young you are going to sign is Luke but I don't get the point as you have a perfectly good right back in Glen Johnson expect a deal between £2 and £3 Million. Your thoughts ed ??

Marlon King is on the verge of signing for Nottingham Forest. Billy Davies feels that he can make him come good and his agent believes this could be his last chance. King may not have had the best of times previously in Nottingham, but Forest is the best offer on the table.(46)(52)

Looks like benaloane to rangers could be a real possibility his agent claims to have spoken to D Murray over the last few days, and now the posturing is going on with the player stating that he's happy to see out his contract in an attempt to force his clubs hand. Also think the lad from Vienna is looking likely as well. Would be two good additions.

Regarding the above post, would it not be Martin Bain who deals with this as opposed to David Murray?? On that note, any fresh Glasgow Rangers news ed?? not to get mixed up with QPR.

MAN U will not sign Ozil or Defour. Dont expect them to sign anyone else as they have already made additions to their squad with Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez from Guadalajara and
Chris Smalling from fulham. A.Ferguson has already said he will not buy anymore as he feels his squad is capable enough.

ARSENAL will not be signing melo or phil jagielka. Melo had an awful world cup plus Juv wanted clichy as part of the deal and will not be sold. Expect Arsene to buy another defender perhaps Per Mertesacker im unsure. Dont expect to see another striker, eduardo was sold knowing that chamkh was signed. A goal keeper will be signed i believe it will be Mark Swarzcher theres no smoke with out fire, perhaps on a player and then coach contract. Fabregas will be staying.

LIVERPOOL Will have the most activity in the transfer window. Bringing in Luke young, petrov/parker and Figuero. Crouch will be sold and a new striker will be bought in. Other players such as maxi and insuna will also leave.

Expect to see FULHAM making a bid for Bellamy with mark hughs being installed as manager. He will have 15Mil to spend.

Spurs will not be buying milner or ashley young as the asking price is only one man city could afford.

United's boss has waited patiently for further developments in the transfer market after landing winger Lloyd Sam on a free transfer on July 9, his sixth new recruit, but a number of deals are expected in the coming week. Source: Yorkshire Evening Post

So what this means is by the end of next week more or less we'll have around 3 signings. One defender, one midfielder and one striker the likely ones are below;

Defence
Alex Bruce Looks very likely been touted a lot
DeMerit rumoured can be had on a free transfer
Riggot again rumoured and also free

Midfield
Koren Can be had on free but it's all about the wages
Russel We were linked but he's been touted elsewhere now, another free
I'd expect someone who hasn't been rumoured here.

Forwards
Leroy Lita seems the most realistic option
Simon Cox loan deal
Nathan Delfuenso Grayson has good links with Villa and is keen to land the impressive youngster and he's just returned from the euro championships so expect any potential deal to move in to motion. This will only be a loan deal for the year.

Bates won't be spending big, we are expected to buy 12 players more and then possibly some of the trialists then the rest will be frees or loans.

The most Bates will spend is 500k on a player.

Grayson mentioned on Yorkshire Radio that 2 signings were immient and one of them would be a shock signing, apparently the shock signing is Alex Bruce which means the other signing probably isn't remotely exciting.(41)(35)

What with all these rumours about new players in, has anybody heard what is happening with Krisztian Nemeth, was supposed to be one for the future, but hasn't figured in any of the preseason games nor is he in Macedonia with the young squad?

He seems to have dropped off the face of Anfield, and Pacheco has taken his place as the "onetowatch".

Anybody shed any insight? Ed maybe from one LFC fan to another? {editor's note nobody I have spoken to has a clue what has happened with him. I am getting worried now as he does seem to be persona non grata all of a sudden.}

Nemeth Is at Melwood after returning from his seasonlong loan at AEK. With increasing interest from Lecce, there is speculation a deal of £1m is dawning as he has been excluded both from preseason camp in Switzerland, and Europa League clash against Rabotnicki.(41)(12)

Healey still a possibility for Rangers, a defender from either the young french lad or the South African. A couple of loans to be completed too. Most deals will be held off as late as possible to save on wages

James to decline Celtic approaches again.

Just to burst your bubbles

To everyone who says that Mascherano will be going to
Inter Milan you are mistaken

His preferred destination is Juventus
So I think that Liverpool will either sell for the highest offer which could be Man City which could even leave him at Anfield until the next transfer window if he does not choose to move to City

Or he could land up at his beloved Juventus in a total deal of around 23m (cash , players however)
Mascherano wants to be a Juventus player

Liverpool have not assigned a squad number to Insua departure looks very possible (check the official LFC website)

After being sucked in to all the Aguero rumours and other top players coming to Liverpool I have finally come out of cloud 9, I have come to the conclusion that we don't need that many players I believe we have a need for a rm and lb and believe it or not I think that's it. The only way a big name Striker would come in is if Torres went (not going to happen)

possable ins Turan for rm role if we sign L young if it is Liverpool that have bid the papers seem to think it is then glen would be 1st choice rb young a bench warmer unless there was a inj to rm or rb then he could play at rb glen rm so 10 m for turan he could also cover the left along with J cole jovanavic and babel also jova can cover upfront along with kuyt if he stays and i still believe if Babel was played upfront and given a run he would be a huge hit I believe Roy will give it untill January rather then spend alot now finally if insua stays (hope so) then he will either buy figeuroa or santon px as part of mash deal (unlikely) prepare for the worst and when something good happens at Liverpool ie takeover star player signs you will be even more supprised and pleased (look at city all those years ago) now everyone envies them.

Trouble at Cardiff City.. The players have been paid their wages simply due to the fact that Mark Kennedy was sold to Ipswich. Cardiff's wage bill totals some £60,000 , which was due yesterday , Kennedy's transfer fee was £75,000.

Expect more sales to happen before the season begins. Whittingham WILL be one of the first leaving for a fee of £1.4 m + add ons should the buying club achieve promotion. Although i am not allowed to mention the buying club, i can pass on that the club are based in the east midlands..

Cardiff will have investment but not for at least 3 months. Dave Jones has players in his sights and has agreed fee's etc with the relevant clubs & players, he is just waiting for both investment and the embargo to be lifted.

It's going to be a tough 3/4 months but things will improve for Cardiff.(36)(22)

ManU
Welbeck is going to be loaned out to Blackpool with United taking care of half of his wages. However, SAF is having 2nd thoughts about a possible loan for Cleverly, especially after his stupendous performances in the pre season friendlies. He might jst get the nod to be on the united bench. Obertan and Diouf are also on the list of players to be loaned out. Hargo n Anderson might not make it to the 25 strong premier league squad but depending on the performances of other squad players till December '10, they might return for the 2nd half of the season (or not). As per the new 25 players rule, and putting the loan deals in perspective, I believe there is room for only 2 more transfers into the squad unless someone (Carrick etc.) leaves the club.
ED, help me out here, I'm not sure if Cleverly, who is 20, would be counted in that 25member squad given his age and the homegrown status. Coz if he is then that leaves room for only 1 more transfer.
Possible transfers for the 2 slots:
1. Ozil
2. only 1 out of Defour, Ninis, Sanchez, Balotelli, Jovetic, Lahm, Hazard, Pjanic in the same order of preference (with Defour and Ninis being the most likely)
NPrak {editor's note – under 21s don't count towards the 25 unless a team chooses to register them to make up the number of home grown players.}(37)(27)

Leeds expected to make 34 signs within the next 10 days,

Sanchez Watt (on Loan) is almost certain to be one after no Premier League interest,
Leeds want Jay Simpson on Loan but Arsenal want to sell despite what it says in the papers no one is willing to meet Arsenals valuation on him that includes QPR & Nottingham Forrest, Jay Emmanuel Thomas is also wanted (on loan) it's thought Leeds will sign 2 of the 3.

Nicky Butt has been offered a contract to bring him out of retirement, down to the player now, has offers from multiple clubs.

Alex Bruce will sign in the coming days after Ipswich and Leeds agreed terms,

The Club was alerted to Matt Derbyshire's availability through Leeds United Fans (what does Williams get paid for?) & there's certainly an interest from Leeds side but Olympiacos want to sell not loan so a deal seems unlikely.

Expect 12 ins before the weekend and a couple before the first game of the season.(42)(23)

glory glory man united

in response to

Maicon is still at Inter .but if he was to join Real madrid Mourinho has said Ramos is a better centre back than right back so he would play him there with
Maicon at right back .so theres no chance of Ramos joining Man utd.sorry to pis on your parade

mourinho may have said that to make ramos feel assured but we will make a bid for himcarvalho has been heavily linked to real and they already have pepe and albiol .ramos is much more attacking minded..so again i say we WILL make bid for him ..comment if u support man utd m8 or bother about ur own team .the thought of playing for man utd may well interest ramos (19)(28)

I'm a big Liverpool fan from Norway. I'm 15 years old and worried about Liverpools future. I hope soon that Broughton can go out public and update us about the takeover. If i'm wrong correct me, but didn't he say that the first bid round was in middle July? So first round should be over. I hope at least 34 bidders were at the table.

Do you have any takeover news ed, and when do you think Liverpool is bought? Sorry about my english, but i'm from Norway :)

From Your Friend from Norway Marius Jensen. {editor's note – that is a very good point, he did say mid–July for the first round.

Sorry to correct you ed but on a earlier post you said maxi would not be going back to espanyol because he was out of favour when liverpool signed him, we signed him from at madrid . for the record i don't think he will go unless he gets the hump when his 2 argie buddies go

he was at espanyol before atletico dude {editor's note – don't worry about correcting me mate, I prefer to have my errors pointed out rather than ignored.

Belgian International Steven Defour from Standard Lige to Man Utd for a fee of 12million pounds ! The young midfielder received letters from Sir Alex himself while he was recovering from a serious footinjury, "get well soon , you have a bright future"
One year later defour is match fit and Sir Alex played his card. Clubs are still negotiating.

Defour is also linked to Liverpool as their new coach specifically followed his type of play in the CL qualifiers , Standard Liverpool .(50)(43)

"Daily mirror is reporting that Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is planning a double swoop on Aston Villa for Luke Young and Stiliyan Petrov! It is said that Liverpool will offer Aston Villa 7million for the Bulgarian once Javier Mascherano has departed. Ed, any thoughts on that ? Bit of a shock for me, but i don't believe it to be true anyway. {editor's note it seems a bit much for him, isn't he well into his 30s?}"

He's 31, and would hate to see him go. He's the maturity of the midfield, a player that truly helped Milner get comfortable and he's our captain. He had a great passing record and I believe the 2nd best tackling record behind Mascherano, which could be why he's being looked at. 7m is a bit much but Villa don't have to sell and he is the captain. We're milking everyone for what we can get if we sell.(24)(46)

First time post on here but love the site
I met ken aguero's mates the other day, freddie torres and dave forlan and they informed me that he is not an eels type of guy or cheese and onion man, he's more of a salt and vinigar man
now to real rumours as everyone knows masch will probably go to inter when ballotelli has gone meaning roy will look for experience to back up his midfield, scharner would be a good buy on a free and with gerrard aging, he is sure to take a deeper role in the midfield and allow aqualani and cole to be the more attacking options for the future
also as much as we would all love KUN aguero to join, it doesn't look likely so i would welcome crouch back, but i have a horrible feeling roy will go for someone like carlton cole
as for the left back situation, well luke young is a back up right back it looks like so salcido, figueroa or Lopez, which wouldd make sense with purslow in madrid

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.}

he signed for Qatar side al sadd :) i don't feel he has the defensive capabilities that we desperately require. Personally i think keeping insua or aurelio would have been a better deal or completing the signing of maynor figeroa (spelling) for a little extra money which we will have from the mascherano sale.(20)(9)

Ozil will sign for Man united.

The reason why you havn't heard anything about this on sky sports or manchester united website is because they will do it in private so man city don't hear anything about it and if chelsea find out they will try and bid for him and say as a excuse like it was a replacement for ballack but the thing is ballack doesn't need to be replaced because he hardley got in the team anyway because of lampard, So you will only find out about if it is real when they have actually sign him.(54)(48)

Hey Ed, Any chance you know the name of the massive signing linked with Tottenham? Im a massive spurs fan and i am slowly becoming very worried at the lack of activity.

What do you think the chances of the big player signing are and also any news at all about Spurs, I am that desperate I am looking to feed off anything to keep me going :D

Cheers in Advance and keep up the great job {editor's note – I don't know the name sorry. And I am beginning to doubt my source with him telling me it was 15m bid rejected for Parker. But he has been right in the past about players coming in and being bid for, so hopefully he is right now. All I know is it is a forward thinking player, I have been trying to think who it could be and the names that come to mind seem too good to be true. I end up just thinking of the players I want to see play in the EPL rather than those that are likely to sign for Spurs.}(5)(16)

By the looks of things the deal for Milner to Man City is going to fall through due to the fact that MON has said its either £30 Million in cash ( not literally ) or no deal. Also he looks happy being with friends Stewart Dowing and Ashley Young which can be seen on the photo's on the club wesbite. This is good news to Villa fans and the club as he was a key man last season and being the player he is always wanting to improve he will have a better season next.

Sorry to all the Liverpool fans thinking the Young there getting is Ashley as he going to sign a new contract with the club keeping him here until 2014 when the team arrives back from Portugal. The Young you are going to sign is Luke but I don't get the point as you have a perfectly good right back in Glen Johnson expect a deal between £2 and £3 Million. Your thoughts ed ??

Possibly by the time you read this, it will be all over the papers, but Liverpool have indeed put an offer of just under 3m for Luke Young and it was accepted by Villa, its now down to the player but I think he will agree to the move.

Luke will play at right back and Glen will play at right of midfield , Roy is doing the same what Harry did with Bale.

Also in the next few days expect to see news that both Maxi and Kuyt are leaving (expected to leave), Maxi back to spain (fee ~ 5m) and Kuyt most likely to inter fee ~ 12m, Mach will get his move soon fee ~ 20m again to inter no player swaps although it maybe a possibility and inter will prefer a player swap or player + cash, however Liverpool want cash.

Roy is looking for another 2 /3 players and as I understand it there will be 1 big (stature not size)British player maybe the Number 7 player everyone is hoping for (kenny travelling back in time maybe or ist Kevin).
Our Ed's favourite Pacheco maybe loaned out to a club in spain for the season or maybe till January , Roy is huge admirer already, even though he have n't met him yet.

And one more thing ED, enjoy your day , it sounds that you have a full one ahead of you.

I can't comment on Ken's preferred tipple and bar snack but my source has confirmed that the offer was a fiver, 4 pints of Greene King and a packet of cheese and onion. If the offer doesn't appeal to Ken then i doubt he'd sign for us.

I suppose we'll have to wait for one of his drinking buddies to confirm his requirements before we find out whether we have a chance of getting him.

By the way, i bet the original poster didn't think he'd get this much attention for his rumour.(9)(20)

Sami is coming back on the coaching side, FACT. But these rumours of Arabian 'saviours' are beginning to stretch the imaginations too far now! Get real, we've so far splashed out £2million in transfer dealings, proving H&G have a method in the MADNESS they've bestowed upon the club.

I would love to see Stoke sign PrinceBoateng and Santa Cruz as is being linked. KPB had a good world cup, can play ACM, LW or part of a front 3 and is great value at £4 million. Santa Cruz is still a class act, not given enough opportunities at Man City. Tony Pulis has said that he wants to sign 45 players, get rid of some of the idiots that show the manager no respect that are there now. E.g Beattie and Kitson.

Sorensen

Huth Shawcross Faye Higginbotham

Whelan

Tuncay PrinceBoateng Etherington

So now we know that one of the three players Harry is after is a central mid (Parker), what I've heard is that spurs are after a striker and a versatile defender to go with a midfielder.

Rumours I've heard are, Spurs are now going after Ireland instead of Parker and for the other positions they are after Bellamy and Richards.

ED do you have any rumours on who spurs are chasing?(13)(14)

The Aiden Mcgeady to Villa/Bellamy/young merrygoround.
In reply to your question Ed about young to liverpool. yes Lfc def interested, but no formal bid has been made. If it does then aiden will go to Villa with bellamy on loan to the hoops.

My source has been accurate so far so not gonna doubt him but M'on can be stubborn & Liverpool may look elsewhere.
My fellow hoops.This may drag on till deadline day so hold tight about Bellamy.

Richybhoy

Don't listen to that prat from earlier Ed. Keep up the good work mate.

I WOULD DOUBT HIM ALREADY. MO'N ALREADY SAID A BID FOR YOUNG HAD BEEN MADE AND IT WAS THE PLAYERS CHOICE. I WOULD SAY O NEILL IS A GOOD SOURCE(18)(18)

Just watched Celtic play Braga, 30 was a ridiculous outcome for a game that had 00 written all over it. The sooner Neil Lennon gets LB Tiene (rumoured to be early next week) the better.

My prediction when Mulgrew joined Celtic was that he would be our Kirk Broadfoot, I am still waiting to be proved wrong after a shocking competitive debut.

Braga's first goal came from a soft penalty for handball, perfectly taken mind you. Then some utterly shocking defending gifted them a second (Like all of last season Loovens refusing to get stuck in, Sol Campbell or Kelvin Davies would have come in very handy!), then a deflected 35 yard free kick which could have gone anywhere but looped over Zaluska finished off the scoring.

With a bit of luck it could have been 00 but Celtic never mustered a shot on target so they deserved to be beaten. The main positive's from the game were definately Juarez, who was exceptional, and Hooiveld, who was very good. Ki had a good game too but Maloney, Ledley and Brown could still have been on a beach somewhere!

Rumour has it that Lennon has reconsidered offering Luccin a contract because of the uproar caused among the fans when the media found out. Celtic need a midfield enforcer though so he may look elsewhere, I have heard a very cheeky whisper that he would take robbie savage for a season, I reckoned it to be a non starter but since the site is called football rumours I thought I'd throw it out there!

Not really a rumour, more a question.

There are so manny rumours concerning Aguero moving to Liverpool i feel like i have missed out on something. I keep updated with the New on SSN, Liverpool Website and Liverpool Echo and although i accept this is not comprehenisve, having discovered this site in the past two days the links with Aguero have surprised and confused me.

Would be great if they are true, but the only link i can see is the claim of someone seeing aguero in a hotel in Liverpool, and Christian Purslow reported to be in Madrid in negotiations? Surley these are contridicting reports?

If Purslow was discussing a deal for Aguero, wouldn't Aguero be there in Madrid and not in Liverpool?

Any news that could support this rumour is great, because would love Aguero in the team. Not forgetting Torres and Aguero both played together at Athletico so would be reuniting a formiddible front line. Just hope for information as to why these rumours started?

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


Maicon is still at Inter ..but if he was to join Real madrid Mourinho has said Ramos is a better centre back than right back so he would play him there with
Maicon at right back ..so theres no chance of Ramos joining Man utd..sorry to pis on your parade(15)(32)

Arsenal transfers

Mertesacker=15m
Akinfeev=30m

Frimpong, Wilshere and JET will all push for 1st team starts. The teams I can see challenging for the title are chelsea, arsenal, man.u, man city and liverpool.
Sorry stty spuds but your no where good enough to be considered as a big club. You don't even have the money, you aint strengthened your squad and your just st really.


Who exactly have you purchased to improve your squad? You have lost all your experienced defenders and your greatest player doesn't even want to play for you.

Anyway, spurs will strengthen before the new season starts, expect an increased bid for Parker (possibly including Jenas) along with a new defender (hopefully Richards)

Spurs and Man City will push Arsenal out of the top Four(18)(37)
