To who the guy that said Liverpool will sell KUYT that is a joke he is one of Liverpools best player this season! Close eyes are on Zigic a serbian Crouch style player but the difference is in the celebration he doesn't do the robot! Zigic has a price tag of $15 mil euros but Chelsea will not be buying him because kezman (another serbian striker) was a flop at Chelsea. Expect Martin Jol to buy diego from weder bremen he has a price tag of $ 10 mil but worth every cent! heard it from down under
Roeder is to change the scouting system at Newcastle but the first rule is that no one is to speculate on any players coming in but many believe that name such as Huntelaar and Klose and the likes of Babel already being banded around may simply be smoke screens. Several players that are believed to be under the watchfull eye of Newcastle are, in Holland, Afonso Alves, though his coach is quoted as stating that he is worth 20 million at the moment his wages state that he is not though a work permit may cause problems but not so for the Swiss N`Kufo of Twente. In Germany, Kevin Hofland and one of Germanys newest internationals Alexander Madlung as well as Alex Frei and the Greek Theofanis Gekas who is currently on loan from Panathinaikos both of which have netted more goals that Klose. In France, Gregory Bourillon of Rennes and of course the veteran Mario Melchiot, can only be better than Carr. And why the hell not, everyone else picks up good players from around Europe that arent household names, Bolton are bloody great at it. Lets start a new trend on Tyneside. Please
Everton defender Alan Stubbs will join Watford next season, signing a one year deal at Vicarage Road. The Hornets are likely to get relegated from the Premiership this season, and Aidy Boothroyd knows that he needs to bolster his squad if they're to achieve an instant return to the top flight. Stubbs would bring some much needed experience to the side, and with Marlon King set to return next season Watford may be a decent bet to regain promotion.
If Birmingham get promotion this season Steve bruce will have a big transfer kitty from sales of Upson and Dunn plus what David gold allows him and bruce has his eye on:

- LCFC RUMOURS-
Expect Milan to bring in some strikers next season to join Matty Fryott and Ian Hume (spelling), in the form of former Manchester United and England Star, Teddy Sherringham, who wants to play but is currently out of favour at West Ham. The second player is the man who shocked the cop with his wonder strike against Arsenal, former Liverpool player Neil Mellor.
this is 100% true and will be a done deal well before 1 september : )
New manager will be KEEGAN after the Derby game if Rob Kelly fails to win. this is going to happen anyway but Manderic will bring him in early if Kelly cannot change the clubs fortunes.
Does anyone know any definite transfers that are coming to Nufc in the Summer?
Glen Roeder is set to break the gut wrenching trend of not buying superstars and buy footballers that can not only play but who can show they want to play football, something the overpaid muppets at SJP on Saturday, and much of the season, have not shown. After casting a disbelieving eye over the Spurs squad that are building and pushing further up the league, Mr. Roeder would be excused by thinking that this could have been much of the squad at Newcastle today if not only short sighted was not part on the criteria for the Newcastle United managerial position as well as if the clubs money matters were dealt with in a professional manner: Jenas, Lennon (offered to the club for 1 mil) Dawson, Malbranque and Keane. And it is from these kind of lessons that Glen Roeder will prove a success, bringing in young talents players who love to play football but also knowing when to bend a rule and employ Premiership quality with the likes of Sol Campbell, who Newcastle could have boasted in the ranks of their defensive shambles. Sadly in his rebuild he may have to sell Martins. I hope not as there are not many players who can boast his goal tally in a pretty unimpressive season. Babel will be brought in to cause Duff a lot of head and heart ache and to knock on both Martins and Owens door. With Davies a very likely recruit don't be surprised by some German squad players that have passion, strength and concentration who will soon become permanent fixture in the first team. Roeder will also cast out much of the dead wood that floats around the ground on a Saturday; Carr, Baba, Moore, Bramble, The Spaniard and Ameobi to name a few, replacing Shola with the likes of Varney of Crewe.
Steve Coppell will be given £20m if Reading make Europe. Coming in will be:
Lee Cook-£1m (if QPR relegated) / £3m (if QPR stay up)
Bikey-£1.3m (already done)
Landon Donovan-£4m/ David Nugent-£4-5m/ Dionamsy Kamara-£3m (2 of 3 of those will join)
Seol Ki-Hyeon-£2m-Birmingham/ West Brom
John Halls-£400k-Stoke/ Colchester/ Notts Forest
Sam Sodje-£600k-West Brom/ Burnley/ Preston
Shane Long-Loan-Championship Side
Adam Federici-Loan-QPR/ Luton/ Colchester
