I am friends with a member of the West Ham academy staff, and he's told me that the first team are all united behind Zola.

The players have nothing but complete respect for him, and if Zola is forced out by the Porn Barons as many as 15 players will hand in their notice and move to new clubs.

Finally, Arsenal are looking to sign a youngster from the West Ham academy after David Sullivan called him 'weak and pathetic'. His father replied by saying he could shove one of his friends toys in his rectal passage.

The Porn Barons will kill West Ham already heard that they are being tipped as relegation candidates for next season. Pathetic bankers and pathetic (have a guess) seems to be the story of the Hammers owners at the moment.

Luis Fabiano & Joe Cole to sign for Man Utd

Big big news
Big Norman Whiteside has said this a few times on Radio Ulster, so it must be true!! Jack Rodwell is defo moving to Man Utd in the summer for £5 million plus Gary Neville. Gary is up for the move as he wants to finish his career at a lower level & playing with his brother. Apparently he likes to play with his brother as much as possible. As for Rodwell, he said he want to experience playing in Europe at a descent level.

Poor disillusioned Man City fans, can't you see whats going on. your owners and their "money is no object" attitude is just a gimic to make a quick buck. I know lets buy a team on the cheap that has just moved into a new stadium that has a ridiculously low annual rent amount on it, flash our cash and make some waves in the transfer market to get the clubs name recognised. I mean lets be honest, the owners where never gonna pay £103m for kaka even if that's what they leaked to the press. They will back you till your in the CL, regenerate around the ground then sell it all off at a massive profit. think about it

 

29 Mar 2010 19:25:40
All these rumours saying that Gerro and Torres are going to be off to City this summer are a bit wide of the mark. All you have to do is look in the news to see all the statements they've been making about wanting to stay.

Now on to the rumours.

Rafa is looking to spend the 25mil (from the partial buyout) on supposedly out of favor Higuain as he believes that its a great opportunity to snatch up a possible world beater. Any other players will be picked up through sales and money from the shirt deal. Mata and Kjaer are high on the list, with each estimated to easily cost over 10mil each. Reira and Dossena are definite sales, with Benayoun, Skrtle, and Babel possibly going the otherway. Babel is the least likely as he has recently found favor with Rafa. This can all change depending on the final EPL standings

 

29 Mar 2010 19:39:19
Newcastle to make 6 major signings in the summer, with emphasis of having a core squad of 20outfield and 3gk players. The players to sign will cost in total betwee £25mil. 2 left wingers will sign, these players being tosic from manu and vicentre from valencia, both will come in on loan. the team will sign a centre back in the shape of nedum onoucha for 4mil who will get the 1st football he craves (hence why he rejected eveeton and liverpool in jan). 1 striker will sign for £6mil this will be vela from arsenal who wenger has lost patience with. boateng will sign from portsmouth for £6mil and finally double capture of eagles and fletcher from burnley for a combined £9mil will complete the signings

In exciting Motherwell news"

Motherwell will announce at the end of the SPL season that they will sign American wunderkinds Cody Arnoux and Anton Peterlin, both currently with Everton.

 

29 Mar 2010 18:40:06
I have been advised by a good source that the Gunners are interested in Scotland and Rangers GK Alan McGregor and are ready to table a bid of arround £8m for the highly rated kepper, also heard Spurs are interest in him, lets hope it doesn't become a bidding war, as we know Wenger is a tight git !!

Arsenal No1

 

29 Mar 2010 18:38:04
You may have heard that Man city are ready to spent £135million on 2 players. well i have reason to believe they are torres and gerrard although i personally think the fee is a joke. make of it what you will

 

29 Mar 2010 18:03:29
100% FACT . Liverpool will be signing Gonzalo Higuain in the summer this was confirmed by Javier Mascherano off record the deal is done hence so many key players signing new improved deals big news to come from the club soon regarding a full takeover. The end to an era of pain insight my fellow reds.!

 

29 Mar 2010 17:42:34
Rooney to Madrid
This will NOT happen

Torres & Gerrard to City
This WILL happen

 

29 Mar 2010 15:22:31
Can i say to the everton post's on here remarking on a switch to white hart lane for yakubu? i can say with whole and complete confidence that tottenham hotspur football club have absolute no interest in the player what so ever!

 

29 Mar 2010 15:26:37
Rooney to real madrid
this will happen

 

29 Mar 2010 16:22:48
I am really good friends with someone who works in the media, and he told me that they are expecting some really big news to break out about one of the top 4 clubs about a takeover in the next month or so. I asked for some more details but all he could tell me was that they wear red. So im guessing that its obviously either Arenal, Liverpool or Man U. Also it's not like these three teams havent been linked with takeoveovers recently. Lets look at them :
Arsenal. Stan Kroenke Increased his shares again last week and I think he only needs another 10 shares to make a bid for the club.
Liverpool. We all know whats going on there, maybe Gilett and Hicks have finally decided that they what out.
Man U. The Red Knights have been in the papers again recently, are they about to make their move?
I can't wait to see if/when it happens!

SOS: "torres is signing for city next season"; I heard the same thing from the same source , I know because he told me that he told you; but he also told me; "because Everton won't even make Europa leage few players will leave to clubs that match their ambition, he named Fellaini, Pienaar and Heitinga, as well as the well documented Rodwell move to united . the surprise in that move would be the price: its no where near as high as first published; the other thing as you would possibly expect not all the money will be giving back to Moyes to relpace the players, most of it will be used to balance the books and compensate for the loss of european revenue same happened with the Lescott money ".

NUFC: To say Ashley won't put anything in you're very much mistaken! The club will listen to offers again this summer, if a new owner isn't found then Ashley will invest the TV money. Not all of it will be issued to Hughton, but he'll have a good £15m or so at his disposal. Player sales (Taylor looks likely to be sold following the Carroll incident) will make up the rest of the funds available. Providing Newcastle don't sell off the likes of Nolan, Guthrie, Guttierez, Jose Enrique and Carroll then they should have enough to consolidate their Premiership status. Loan deals will be a huge focus. Possible ins could be Vela, Sunu and Wilshere from Arsenal with Phillipe Senderos an option to replace Taylor (he's a free agent once the Everton loan expires). Portsmouth could be raided with David James a possibility. Ashley may be a muppet, but he's not going to want to be facing releagtion to the Championship again. He want's out, but knows he'll have to speculate to accumulate!

 

29 Mar 2010 14:14:44
Just heard messi is going to liverpool in the summer! apparently the catalonian giants have accepted an offer of 5 magic beans. but really does anyone have any real transfer news?

 

29 Mar 2010 13:15:27
Met David Pleat in a hotel in Dubia last night and he told me where forest to get promoted they will have the spending power to compete with the premeirship sides, he also claimed that there would be outside investment into the club and the players he wanted to see at the city ground next year where Jermaine Pennant, Nigel ReoCoker, Nicky Shorey, Emile Heskey, Jimmy Bullard, Andy Reid, Andy Johnson and he even quoted micheal owen as a target lol, he then went on to claim billys targets where different and he was more intrested in persuing david nugent and robert snodgrass, MIGHTY REDS!!

 

29 Mar 2010 13:25:57
As previously posted Yak & Joe Yobo will be high profile transfers out of Goodison. The "Yak to Spurs" rumour is gaining ground with rumours of a swap deal mooted. The question if for who? Robbie Keane is favourite, but don't bet against a shock deal for former Kop fave, Peter Crouch!
The fans are unimpressed with our strike force this year, particularly Yak & Anichibe. The rest of the team is looking good, but don't be surprised to see an Everton front two of Crouch & Darren Bent next season. (Bent has always said that Everton would be his dream move.)

Good times ahead. IMWT

Big BIG chance that Buffon is an Arsenal player by next season

EVEN BIGGER ONE THAT HE'S NOT! He's 32 we all know what AFC's policy is with players over 30! Robert Green most likely when the Hammers go down. Lloris is an option, as in Neur but both would cost far more than Green.

RE: Torres to City. City will make a huge bid, if LFC don't finish 4th then he is likely to leave. Torres is unlikely to be keen on a move to City, but Gilette & Hicks will snap their hands off at the deal! It's 4th or bust for Liverpool fail to oust Spurs and you can wave bye bye to Gerrard too. Chelsea are ready to pounce and this time he won't say no (shame his wife can't learn to do the same!).

 

29 Mar 2010 13:03:07
"Liverpool's main transfer targets are from England this summer, with one of the being Kieran Richardson from Sunderland. Rafa is keen to sign a new left back and he would cost around 9m"

What a surprise, someone thinks LFC are buying player from the team they just played. Richardson is not on Rafa's list! Taiwo is being heavily courted for LB, with either Mata or Joe Cole prefered for a wide spot.

 

29 Mar 2010 12:55:57
Hicks has refused the 40% offer from the rhone group, what a surprise, the story about the rhone group has come out to force any other interested investors hands

Steven Pienaar will sign a new 4yr deal at Everton before the world cup.This will be the first of many deals to tie Everton players to new contracts.EFC hope to conclude their transfer buisness before the world cup.Yobo and the Yak will leave with the yak going to Spurs.

29 Mar 2010 11:37:17
Gonna repeat a few things which are supposed to be true, the reason aquillani aint playing much for liverpool is he is struggling to handle the physical side of english football and the 2nd 1 is torres is signing for city next season , people in the media are adamant this deal has been agreed.
school of science

 

29 Mar 2010 11:36:22
Celtic to stick with lennon/mjallby after the end of the season, expext to see willie mcstay come back to the club as first team coach.
Celtic to also look into the possibility of bring a more expreienced manager to the club to mentor lennymabye a return for liam brady?????

I geuss 2 free siginnings wer joe cole n chamakh for arsenal!!up gunners

 

29 Mar 2010 10:43:56
Not so much rumour more like probables!
firstly, joe cole will if he does not resign for chelsea remain in london possibly at arsenal??
fabregas will not be moving to spain! wenger will look to bring in another 3/4 players!
spurs will NOT be selling modric, lennon, bale, palacios, dawson, defoe, kranjcar, pavluyachenco or gomes! coming in looks like; parker, richards, bellamy, plus one or two other named players and two young players!! jack mclnerney from the u.s who they claim is the best young player the country has produced? and sani emmanuel from nigeria who was voted golden ball winner at the under 17 world cup! chelsea are said to be very interested in the player but the boy has is heart set on tottenham!!

snipits from a work col in the midlands he told me milner is no way going to liverpool although manchester united are keeping a very keen eye on him? and that foster from manchester united and nigelrcoker from aston villa will not be going to spurs?? if man city call back jo hart then birmingham will go for foster.

This summer Rafa will be looking to make significant changes to his squad. He is sacrificing the number of players for quality. With Maxi now showing his quality, expect Yossi and Riera to be shipped out, being relaced by Mata (first choice but stiff competition from top Spanish clubs) or Turan. With Kelly showing first team quality he will provide back up for both RB and CB, but expect Skrtel to be replaced by Kjaer. Taiwo is first choice to replace Aurelio. Rafa has 7m left from January, plus a rumoured 25m net budget this summer. The above dealings will cost 23m net leaving 9m. The sales of fringe players such as Degen, El Zhar, Nemeth, and San Jose will raise another 8m approx. That leave 17m plus the associated reduction in wages but much of this will be offset against new deals and the higher wages needed to convince players to come to a club without CL football (potentially). Not far off mate, you where right about most of it exept.. The transfer funds are more than 25m.. Expect Lucas to be off to Spain pos as part of a part ex deal, other than that you where pretty spot on oh but I know for a fact there will be a new decent striker poss higuain poss not but that was one of the promises torres has been made hence the fact he had now come out saying he is happy and isn't leaving. 100% facts

Norwich Targets for this summer:

Fraser Forster Season Long Loan
Shaun Harrad £125k
Simon Gillett £175k

Other players will be targetted depending on which fringe players leave, but PL wants to keep the nucleus of the squad together as he believes they are capable of achieving a top half finish in the Championship next season and wants to give them the opportunity.

News comin out of italy is that a top premier league club is interested in juve keeper buffon. any ideas who it is?

Hey mate, it is believed to be either Chelsea or Man U. They are the two trying to win his signature, but I have my doubts because Van Der Sar is at Man U for next year and Chelsea have no reason to get rid of Cech?

 

28 Mar 2010 23:45:30
Whilst Forest Green are trying hard to get money, it will be inevitable that many of their players will be sold in order to help keep the club going.

Going out are: Mark Preece (Bath), Conal Platt (Newport County), Craig Rocastle (Woking), Isaiah Rankin (Histon) and Jonathan Brown (Newport County).

 

28 Mar 2010 23:38:02
Coventry City are to make summer moves for Lee Naylor and Darren Carter.

Straight from the Horses Mouth: "I've been silenced by Nigel Doughty." Forest fans can work it out.
