Liverpool news:
BREAKING NEWS is Rafa Benitez is to be officially sacked by noon. He has had a major bustup with the owners over his transfer funds, with £5m given to boost the squad. With signings Jonjo Shelvey and Milan Jovanovic tied up, £5m will go to the next manager, who'll likely go for freebies. Linked with the job is:
Guus Hiddink (Favourite; won't happen, has just taken over as Turkey boss)
Alan Curbishley (Was Gerrard's no. 1 choice when Rafa was appointed)
Martin O'Neill (Proven he can work with a budget)
Kevin Keegan
Kenny Dalglish

I was at Heathrow earlier coming back from Dubai, and saw David Gill talking to Joe Cole!

Even though i am a Man Utd fan and hope this to be true as he would be great for Rooney, i highly doubt he was talking to him as Fabio would never allow this

 

02 Jun 2010 23:48:22
Alan Smith's dad is my dad's best friend and I have it from his own dads mouth that Alan will be signing for Leeds this summer, taking a wage cut. Its well known fact that Smudge wants finish his career at Leeds and apparently he wants to help them get promoted back to Premiership.

Also Rob Snodgrass not going anywhere, he's trying help persuade James McArthur join Leeds.
Becchio to be offered new deal.

Outs:
Mike Grella to Bolton in return for Danny Ward

 

02 Jun 2010 23:44:47
Everyone should stop speculating about Joe Cole and where he is going to end up. The truth is noone but Joe actually knows, and even if it is a done deal we won't be finding out till after the world cup so stop making up how many years hes signed for an how much money he will get it is all speculation!

 

02 Jun 2010 23:44:11
Liverpool's next manager will be 'Big Phil' Luis Felipe Scolari.

Scolari is a free agent after leaving Uzbekistan, and would relish the chance of working in the Premier League again.

As for takeovers, Yankee Doodle dandies will hold out until the last second, but the banks will have the final say. If they threaten to close trade on Liverpool, it will make their positions untenable (plus there would be rioting in Liverpool on a scale not seen since Toxteth almost 30 years ago!)

The takeover will happen by the start of August, and there will be funds in place to mount a serious league campaign. Don't expect the title, but the FA Cup or League Cup would be an achievement.

Liverpool are a few years away from being title contenders yet, but at least we're in a better situation than Man Ure. They'll be in the Championship in a few years, with a bit of luck!

YNWA.

I was at Heathrow earlier coming back from Dubai, and saw David Gill talking to Joe Cole!

Barnet manager Mark Stimpson is looking to raid his old club Gillingham, purchasing:
Simon King (£200,000)
Simeon Jackson (£215,000 with John O'Flynn and Joe Devera going the other way)
Jack Payne (£80,000)

The Bees do have money to spend on transfers. More players likely to go to Underhill:
Claude Gnakpa (Luton Town) £50,000
Danny Mills (Peterborough) loan
Kiernan Charnock (Torquay United) nominal fee
Rhys Murphey (Arsenal) loan

I guarantee you a majority of this transfers WILL go through.

Leeds set to have talks with watfords nathan ellington.

 

02 Jun 2010 23:40:20
Hi guys. You Hibs fans crack me up. Paul Hartley will NOT be signing for you. My mate is Bristol City legend, Alan Walsh. Walshie told me today that even though Hartley's family is still up in Edinburgh, Hartley is looking for a flat in the Bristol area so that his family can come and live with him. Bradley Orr is welcome to QPR, BUT I warn you guys that Orr CANNOT defend for his life. Coppell is after a defender, Gary Sawyer is on his list. COME ON U REDS!!

Arsenal Opinions only based on rumours heard !

Need to buy to win Title
Chamakh(done)
J.Cole
Diahkate
M.Richards
Goalkeeper

Need to sell
Arshavin( barely bothers)
Eduardo(not player of old)
Rosicky(same as above)
Eboue(about bloody time)
Alumia(Goodkeeper but no one has faith including him)
Fabianski(No confidence)

Need to train harder and listen to coaches and team mates
Walcott
Vela
Bendtner
Djourou


Fabregas won't be sold unless Wenger makes at 60M cash and doubt he'd spend it on a replacement with youngsters like ramsey and wilshere and lansbury at club now

Just my opinion

 

02 Jun 2010 23:10:31
Rafa going. O'Neill will replace him. Expect Joe Cole and James Milner at Anfield next season. Likely that one of either Gerrard or Mascherano will leave, most likely Mascherano, but possibly both. A LB will then be the main transfer focus. Heard talk of a Babel/Walcott swap deal but unlikely.

If O'Neill is confirmed don't be suprised to see Carew and/or Warnock follow him.If we keep Gerrard and the rest of the above happens, game on!!

 

02 Jun 2010 23:09:24
Mark Hughes will be offered the Liverpool Job working alongside Dean Saunders current Wrexham manager and Mark Bowen both Dalglish and Rush want MH within.. An Asian group is in discussions not to purchase but to invest with a view to buy in 12 months .

TO THE GUY WHO WROTE THIS



02 Jun 2010 09:02:03
NEWS FROM THE EMIRATES !


Firstly, I will correct some people who are just wishing rather than using sources / facts.

1. Joe Cole is NEVER coming to the Arsenal. Please stop the false comments.

2. Gary Cahil is not coming either.

3. Hangeland will not come as Wenger will not pay 10 million+ for an old player almost 30 now. He never has and never will.

4. Taylor was never in the frame. Stop this silly rumour.


Now, some actual facts from my source who can shed some light.


Wenger has been talking to several clubs for 7 players only in the pipeline. Not all will come, but it is only 7 at this stage.

Only 3 are known (given to me) so I will put false names.


THE 3 SO FAR BEING DISCUSSED.


1. Stephen Ireland (MAN CITY) Approx 78 million.
Young, within Wenger's price range and has Premier league experience.

2. Mexes (Defender) Young ish, experience and available for approx 12 million range.

3. The big one. Reina (Liverpool) this is still alive despite what people say publically. 14 Million bid refused. Wenger thinking about player exchange maybe involving Walcott ironically.
Complex deal hence taking its time to materialise.


These 3 could happenbut these are developments at this stage not some wild dreams.


FROM THE INSIDER , SABA AL KHAIR

MEXES IS 28 BORN MARCH 30TH 1982
AND HANGELAND IS ALSO 28 BORN 2OTH JUNE 1981 COME ON SORT IT OUT HOW DOES 9 MONTH MAKE ONE OLD AND THE OTHER YOUNGISH

Rafa Sacked By Liverpool

Rafa Benitez has been sacked for failing to accept a severance package offered to him by the club, claim Anfield insiders this evening.

It is claimed that the Liverpool board opted to pull the trigger after becoming worried about the lack of support in the manager by his players and also because they felt he was no longer in the job for the right reasons.

I have been surfing through this site for quite some time now and one thing that annoys me the most is how so many people make up rumours which include player swaps.players can't be sent wherever their club wants them to go.until the player is happy to go to wherever the club wants him to go he simply wnt go.so stop making sily rumours.

Now to some real rumours.
Maicons agent says that madrid, chelsea, n mancity are interested in him.he wil probably end up in madrid.
Vargas himself has confirmed madrid are interested in him.
Also barca hve started informal negotiations with cesc fabregas n if given the right price then he wil surely move.
n liverpool fans please give me a break.aguero to be swapped with mascherano.atletico can get upto 40 mil£ for him frm chelsea.den y wld he go to champs league riden livpool.aguero himself stated a while ago that he would look very nice in a blue jersey.
also silva to livpol or manc wnt hapen anytime.valencia are in the champs league.then y wld silva leave champs league footbal join livpool who are in turmoil.
manu or madrid wil b favriotes to sign him.

"Guus Hiddink will be aproached to take the post at LFC after the world cup. This is only because they lost out to Real for "The Special One"."

Hiddink already has a job after the world cup. Why would a man in his 60s want to take on the stress of an EPL side? Can Liverpool afford to buy him out of his contract. Where is the £10M required this month to pay installments on Aquilani and Johnson coming from?

Good times ahead..YNWA said at 02 Jun 2010 22:11:06:

"Liverpool have offered manager Rafael Benitez a lucrative pay–off worth about £3m up front as they try to find a compromise deal which will pave the way for the Spaniard to leave the club this summer."

This has been on the cards – but I thought they might of hung on a week or so to see if Inter wanted to speak to him – thereby getting a return on losing the manager.

"incoming manager would Fabio Capello afta world cup."

I will stick my neck on the line and say zero chance.

"Yeah hear it here 1st..plus Liverpool has been purchased."

I will stick my neck on the line and say not yet.

Just wondering where people have got this gus hiddink to liverpool rumour from as i think you'll find he's signed a contract to take over the turkey national team from the 1st of august, so will liverpool be paying a huge compo package to turkey if so where they getting the money from as a take over is months away yet.

My dad works PR (player relations) at liverpool and he had some very interesting news.

Before england flew out this evening Gerrard confirmed to someone inside anfield Joe cole wants to join Liverpool, but his wages of 70k are a problem so the northwest scum (untd) must be getting him

also gerrard is staying kids not family are settled as in torres, unsure about masc

 

02 Jun 2010 22:24:08
Well if you have a contact like that, you'd know if he stays with an English team, it will cost them a tranfer fee.Whereas moving to another FA means it only costs his wages..

Heard today that Man Uniteds Michael Owen has had a number of clubs having a look at him. Both European and EPL teams, But its up to the manager sir alex if he goes or not.

Ambrose's price tag has gone through the roof after palace was saved last night. CP will be looking for around 3.54.5 million. But now they can accept installments so clubs like Forest and middlesbrough are now being linked with the guy again, however he wants to stay at palace so any move will take weeks to go through.

Forest have enquired about snodgrass and may make a bid but it all depends on other transfers.

Also Tyson is not about to leave the club, he signed a new contract last year and played nearly every game towards the end of last season, so i can't see him going, how ever this is my opinion, so he might be on his way.

Also a few clubs have put bids in for mcgugan.

Finally Forest have had an accepted bid from one of the welsh clubs in our league, so from the rumours around this website it could be either, pratley or whttingham.. Thats all i know.

Im a celtic fan but am getting really annoyed with the tims that are linking the celts with every big name they can get hold of. We need to wake up and face reality, Keano has still got what it takes to cut it in the epl, bellamy in my opion will stay at city (but a possiblily, contradicting myself a bit but true) ledley again will prefer a move to the epl. bullard is going to be a celt when lennys appionted is comfirmed, but again becoz there was no interest from the epl (newcastle pulled out) we need to relise the scottish game is not a patch on the epl, and havnt got the money to attract these players, but the appeal of playing for the best supported team in europe should be enough!!

However, Stokes from hibs will join the hoops. along with lawrence from stoke and bullard (loan)

02 Jun 2010 21:16:25
Regarding the Post by Michael this agreement is heading for Aston Villa forming the new management structureI have just been given some really interesting information which I hope gets published here as it either suggests that either a genuine reward or a political chess game could be going on at one of the premiership clubs. A provisional contract has been drawn up offering an incumbant manager (I don't know who for sure but have some suspisions) a "promotion" to Director of Club Football responsible for overseeing the recruitment, growth and development of ALL squads, backroom staff, scouts and training facilities. All squad managers will then report into the Director who will sanction player purchases and sales. The 1st team though will have a new manager/coach employed who will have control over 1st team selection, tactics, player requests from the reserve squad, given a transfer budget and free reign to submit new player requests.
This promotion could be for a longterm servant or as a way to move one of the incumbant managers out of their current role. It could be used as an effective tool to push them to resigning where termination settlements are no longer an problem or worse case the club continues to pay them their current salary for a "high profile role" while getting some deliverables back from them. Would be a clever way to "remove" a problem manager and avoid expensive settlements and also test their club loyalty (important to the fans). I'm afraid I don't know where the contract is going only that it has been drawn up by an experienced employment solicitor and forwarded to the club chairman in question to fill in the blanks (club name and incumbants name).
If anyone else has any information on this.

Michael.

Manchester United have turned down the chance to sign J.Cole on a free, apparently he would not budge on his wage demands, this is now the reason why all these Arsenal rumours have come to the fore, also it would not matter what Ray Wilkins or anybody else said about any potential move..Joe Cole is a free agent.the word FREE being the obvious reason!

I have just had a very pleasant flight back from the states into Heathrow. The chap in the next aisle was Ian Woan. I asked him what the future held for him and he was uncertain what he would be doing tomorrow nevermind for the rest of his career. He was quite jovial and said he would like to move into management perhaps in the lower leagues and intended to get some experiences around Europe in the future. I asked him how many players would still be at Pompey and he said the vultures were circling. He expects Jamie O'Hara and Hermann Hreidarsson to join his old club Nottingham Forest as he had a sms saying goodbye from both of them and he had wished them good luck. He also said that he expects 75% of the first team to be gone by July 1st

Celtic will sign Stoke City midfielder Liam Lawrence later this week. The midfielder who's contract does actually run at the Brittania until 2013 is said to be unhappy over his lack of first team football at the Premiership team. The deal is said to be undisclosed but estimated to be about £1.6 million. The confirmation of Neil Lennon as Celtic manager within the next couple of days is expected to be completed. Lennon is targetting the midfield with Jimmy Bullard and Cardiff's Joe Ledley also on Lennons radar.

Takeover know idea.
but Rafa is staying didn't Moratti say that he would like rafa but its not going to happen because hes tied to liverpool.Liverpools budget is too hard to tell cuase saying Rafa will not have much may be Rafa not wanting teams to inflate prices.
Seems Mascherano will definately be leaving (£2535M) with Banega(£9M) being his replacement.
If Gerrard (£3540M)leaves then Milner will replace him(£2530M).with an extra (£2535M)+ sales (eg Riera £7M/Plessis £2M +Voronin £1M ect)to spend(total=£3545M) + whatever budget for a LB, LW, ST back up RB

Pompey fan based in plymouth naval base, i have followed argyle for a while now, simon walton won't go to norwich, one simple reason he is not good enough, he was loaned to crewe this season, i think there lies your answer. investment when new manager eventually comes in from larry lucchino, friend of argyles american director joe plumeri, would not be surprised to see some good players coming in, but talk of wonder signings a bit far fetched. from the limited snippets i get argyle might splash out on 3 very good players, and bring a couple of youngsters in from the championship, and prem. argyle looking to cut wage bill, expect a large bid in the region of 2 to 3 million for onismor bhasera, he may not have set the world alight but he has certain qualities, and could probably do the marathon in 50 degree heat, a very strong, quick african indeed. my money on players in would be free transfers on very good wages, koumas, teale, capaldi, norris, although norris would require a fee, and might not like the others drop to league one, depends how much lucchino and others invest.

Now that fab stays at arsenal, there is no need to sign Gourcuff this season. instead, the following will arrive at the emirates: Papa Diakhate(7m), Joe Cole(free) and Felipe Melo(10m).
out will go Armand Traore(3m), Jay Simpson(3m), Gallas Silvestre Senderos(frees). Also Vela, Wilshere, Szczesny, Sunu, Watt and Bartley will be out on loan.

next season, if Cesc leaves, I would love for Gourcuff to replace him and for Hazard to come in for Rosicky/Arshavin.

Leeds are claiming that Eustace failed the medical just to try and save face, it was Eustace's decision to pull out of the deal, Leeds were only willing to pay him the wages of a backup player, whereas Watford offered him first team wages and the captaincy

Ive not got any transfer name rumours, but know exactly what I have heard from the top at the Cardiff City Stadium.

It has been confirmed that CCFC supporters will be extremely pleased and excited by those players we are going to try and bring in. There are some big names on the list and loans will play a big part of next seasons squad. This will be offsetting the disappointment at having to sell some top names, but ridiculously high bids have been received, too good to turn down, and the players in question want to go.

Swansea City are trying to make waves by making enquiries about Cardiff players they know full well they cannot afford (fee or wages). They have been told in no uncertain terms to show intent or 'grow up'. Cardiff will not enter into their phoney war.

To the person who said rangers will not win the league next year as we will have to sell our players, cannot sign anyone, will not score goals and will have an awful defence.

few things wrong with this:

1. Rangers have confirmed that there are no cuts to be made in the wage bill meaning no players will have to be sold

2. Walter Smith has been handed 5mil to spend. granted its not much but look at what he done last year without spending a penny. rangers still one the league.

3. Kenny miller scored over 20 goals last season and kyle lafferty scored 5 in the last 3 games of the season. these two will run riot in the spl next year and with the signings of some good squad players there will be more than enough goals in the team for 3 in a row.

4. As for that awful defence. Davie Weir is the Scottish Player of the year and bougherra hardly played a game all of last season yet still our "awful" defence conceded much less than celtics.

Anyway as for celtic qualifying for the cl next year, the spl winners will still have to go through the final qualifying round as of the 2010/2011 season which means even if you did win the league you may face high quality teams in the qualifiers. (remember arsenal.

Anyway some Rangers transfer news:

INS:
Kyle free (squad player)
Goodwillie 1.4mil
Miller 1mil
Briand 1.3mil
McCarthur 1.3mil

OUTS:
Novo free (done)
Smith free (done)
Beasley free
Wilson 5mil (Minimum rangers will accept)
Boyd free (he's making a mistake)

ARSENAL BIG NEWS
Joe cole signs for Arsenal

According to reports, Cole's representatives met up with Arsenal officials yesterday to thrash out the terms of the deal while the midfield playmaker was being called up to England's World Cup squad by Fabio Capello.

Barring any complications in the process the transfer is expected to be finalised next week, with a view to announcing the move before the tournament in South Africa begins in ten days' time.

The rumours follow hot on the heels of comments by Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp earlier today, when he admitted he believes Cole has agreed in principle to a move to another Premier League club.

'It looks to me that someone's going to make a great free transfer, ' Redknapp is quoted as saying.

'I genuinely don't know who that is, but I don't think it's going to be Tottenham.

'I've got a feeling and I may be wrong that he's already agreed a deal with someone.

'I'm a big fan of Joe's, and I would be interested if he didn't stay at Chelsea, but the feedback we've had is that he might well have already done something.'

They are all using a single source (an article written by Cambridge United fan Alistair Potter) for this news. The article uses terms such as "according to reports" which generally means conjecture – albeit reasonably educated conjecture. It does not add additional credibility to a story if it is simply repeated elsewhere. An interesting aside shows current odds (SkyBet) on Joe Cole's post summer employer as follows: Arsenal 10/11; Man Utd 6/4; Man. City 7/1; Tottenham 8/1; Liverpool 16/1 followed by some less likely options.

This also equates to it being thought that he may well stay with Chelsea.

I am certainly not encouraging any readers to gamble.

Onto real stories, it is well know in and around Old Trafford that club officials traveled to Graz a few days ago. Whether that was to talk about Rooney's new contract amid interest from Mourinho or sign up Joe Cole is still in question. Now that Harry Redknapp has come out and said Cole may have agreed a deal with another club, I am sure he will join Utd after the WC.

ray wilkins said on talksport that joe cole would not be going to man united and as he's a london, london lad he would be staying in london! our arry has turned round and said its not us, we knew this as a story was leaked via agents representing both cole and redknapp that harry would not guarantee him a starting slot.

Joe cole would be a great signing and i think that Harry is talking about Joe going to ARSENAL not united and he will get more playing time, and he could help Walcott improve and follow in his footsteps. I think and hope arsenal can improve in this years season if we buy the right players.

My dad is friends with one of the groundsmen at the emirates, and first of all he has been told that arsene will submit a bid of £6.2 million for Laurent Koscielny tonight, and that Fabregas will be staying at the Emirates for next season at least, because he wants to win something there. Also Wenger has agreed terms with Joe Cole's agent, and Joe will be signing a three year contract at the Emirates, worth £80,000 a week. Both signings are set to be announced before the start of the World Cup. Finally it has been confirmed that Gourcuff has verbally agreed to join arsenal before the world cup for £21.8 million. Although, this deal will only be announced after the world cup. He would not join Bordeux's bitter rivals Lyon. A goal keeper may also be signed, likely to be Frey. But This is all of the transfer activity at the emirates this summer.(coming in anyway)

Rosicky will replace the out of favour Reo Coker, who is wanted by several clubs (Blackburn, Stoke, Bolton & Wolves.. none have made an offer).

Kranjcar will replace Milner who WILL leave but uncertain where he will go with several clubs in the hunt (City is the likely destination once they drive up the price).

I am not going into who what I know, however I am so sure of the Gerrard, A. Cole, J. Cole and Surez transfers I have put my money where my mouth is, Thank you ladbrokes!

To this guy

To the guy that said this: 'To all the Arsenal fans going on about signing Gourcuff because the club have made contact with his father:

That contact is regarding the Lorient defender, not Yoann. Christian Gourcuff is not Yoann's agent, so making contact with him would be of no use whatsoever.'

U are chattin rubbish mate. Iv got a genuine source of info which is comin from my niece in france who rents her villa to gourcuff. She's saying that his 2 year tenancy is up and he is likely to move on coz he doesn't wna renew. He's interested in arsenal because he will fill fabregas's role and coz chamakh is there and of course arsene wenger. My niece was chattin to me bout this last nyt on my wall of my facebook page. If nobody believes me il add u on facebook and u can see for urself.

Arsenal To Sign:

Sebastien Frey £8,000,000

Laurent Koscienly £5,000,000 + Francis Coquelin Loan

Gary Cahill £12,000,000 + Jack Wilshere and Carlos Vela Loan

Eden Hazard pre deal to be signed with £5M paid now

Yoann Gourcuff will only sign if Fabregas leaves, which I don't think he will. I think Joe Cole will only sign if Andrei Arshavin or Theo Walcott leaves, especially with Hazard coming in. Cahill has a good chance of joining. Koscienly will sign soon, and will be first choice unless Cahill signs.

Thoughts.

Ok some funny ones today.

John Eustace WAS at Thorpe Arch for a medical and failed it. Leeds werent willing to take a risk on a potentially bad injury.

Nick Montgomery has signed a new deal with Sheff Utd, Leeds were unwilling to pay the low end premier league wages he was after.

They have signed Billy Paynter on a 3 year deal so him being at carrow road is a shocking lie.

Leeds will still be moving for more players in the next few weeks. One of which is Kyle Naughton from Spurs. A season long loan as Naughton wants 1st team football and 'arry wants him top gain experience playing for a big club

Another is Carlos Vela again on loan, aparently Leeds want to put him up front to partner Paynter as he likes to play off the last defender and has skill and pace, they want to seal the deal before the world cup in case Vela has a stormer!

Chris Lines to Plymouth for 80k is the biggest joke I've ever heard! He still has 3 years to run on his contract and has a minimum release clause of 500k! Offer that and you may see it accepted, although I doubt Lines will join Plymouth Argyle when there is reported interest from Southampton.

MANCHESTER UNITED

Man utd are signing Asenjo, joe cole and james milner and maybe david silva i will explain

man u will sign james milner in a deal involving carrick + money about £10m going the other way. Aston villa are happy to make this deal.!

Asenjo the atletico goalie is on SAF radar as he is one of the most promising goal keepers playing right now. he will cost 8m 10m.

joe cole will sign for man utd after wc as SAF would then play him just off rooney which would mean he would not have to buy another striker so he saves money. Man utd are favs to sign joe. if he is not signed SAF will consider Dzeko, benzema or HULK.

SAF knows he needs a left footed winger and he is a fan of silva. but valencia have had 2 bids for him. man city have bid and man u have made a bid man citys is obvo higher valencia want to accept it but silva dosent want to go to man city and would like to go to man u so there is a problem. i think he will end up going to utd with about £25m goinbg to valencia and obertan or anderson going on loan. if this deal dosent go through SAF will go for Di Maria.

amount spent : £35million
amount made : £16million
spent: £19million SAF has a £30m budget

outs: Foster, Carrick, Anderson, welbeck on loan.

Remember THIS !! NEALIO

 

02 Jun 2010 16:01:39
Possible Transfers:

Arsenal
Ins: Toulahan or Khedira ??(depending on value following WC). Gourcuff 1822m although bordeaux may not sell to arsenal after chamakh left on a free.
Wenger likely to opt for a centre half ?? or a keeper (Frey, Stekelenburg) can't see both unless Gallas goes. (Wenger will be watching WC with a keen eye.)

Liverpool
Ins: Jansen from munich 7m possibly or any decent lb for that matter. Simao has been mentioned but I reckon he's past it, been after him for about 4 years. Maybe Guardado, A.Young (on the cheap because of absense at WC) or Hleb in with a shout. A decent striker would be nice, someone proven e.g Pazzini, Gignac. Could be an exodus as people commonly believe rafa has to break even with transfers. Could be an exciting summer if Rafa buys well.

Man United
Ins: AF has said he won't be taking part in much activity but they always pull something out of the bag. Another striker wouldn't be a surprise (Vucinic, Dzeko, Falcao) or a left winger (not Joe Cole, more like Di Maria or another English winger.) Possibly even Simao could be sought after. But I definitely think AF will bring someone else in.

Chelsea
Ins: Highly respected CA will bring in 2 to 3 big names I think. here are a few that wouldn't surprise me: Aguero, Pato, Hulk, Schweinsteiger, Van Der Vaart. I think he will definitely invest in a young pacey striker, and a flair midfield player if J. Cole leaves. Who knows?

Bellamy has actually stated that he would not mind leaving Man City to go abroad.not saying he is gona go to celtic because obv we couldnt afford him but how do Cardiff think they will finance the deal? Arent cardiff in a bit of a situation with their finances? I think if bellamy does leave he will go to an Aston Villa or maybe a birmingham as these are teams with the sort of money that bellamy can demand.

I think everyone will just have to wait and see what happens with Joe Ledley, he WAS at lennoxtown on Monday and Cardiff have also offered him a major wage rise to try and keep him. Rangers won't be able to compete with the wages on offer. He has now went on holiday and will decide when he gets back. Personally I think he is to good for the SPL and if he came he would without doubt only be up for a year or 2 max then down to the EPL.

The Celtic board do need to get their fingers out though and either get Lennon signed or get someone in. No1 will sign for a team with no set manager

'Other signings will be Swansea duo Ashley Williams and Dazza Pratley for a joint fee of 2m. Cardiff could make it a triple swoop from the gypos as they have expressed an interest in Alan Tate who has always talked about his desire to play for Cardiff.'

Ok 9/10 for comedy..haha very funny and all that..

Seriously, none of these players would want to sign for Cardiff and it will be Swansea who will become the first Welsh club in the FA Premier League. Maybe not next season but the season after we will be flying!

Pratley is off to WBA and in return we will make a move for Richard Chaplow (Preston), possibly Kevin Kyle (Free although won't buy if wages are too high) if not we hope to sign either Bradley WrightPhillips or Rickie Lambert. Also moving for Tommy Spurr, Adam Le Fondre and Tom Kennedy.

We are setting our sights on at least a top 6 finish, but whilst Huw Jenkins stays we are financially stable even if we are knocked out in the playoffs. Forest and Leicester to go up automatically and hopefully us in playoffs, but not essential we go up next season.

Cardiff will have a pretty good season, but will fall short (again!) and the Malaysians will realise that they are a poor return on their investment, sell the club on and take them into administration again.

Leeds and Forest fans.

Have heard that Snodgrass will not be going to Forest.

This is due to the acquisition panel having made huge inroads into the completion of another deal which will see another leftsided midfielder come in. He is considered by the acquisition panel and Billy Davies to be much better than Snodgrass, and will cost Forest the same amount that Bates wanted for Snodgrass.

However, Grayson had counted on receiving a large transfer fee from Snodgrass to help fund several quality championship players. This change of heart from Forest has led to complications in a number of Leeds transfer dealings (i.e. Eustace staying at Watford, Montgomery demanding higher wages). All this means that Snodgrass is still on the market, and there is alot of interest from Middlesbrough and Cardiff City.

Norwich are also set to sign Nile ranger season long loan this will wait into Norwich can sort out a deal for Fraser Forster the reason it's taking so long is that Norwich have offered Newcastle around 1m + add ons, Newcastle are still thinking about this as they know they will have to evently sell Fraser or krul with two other promising young keepers comung thourgh.

Is the Jimmy Bullard rumour a done deal or is it just a rumour??..

it's not done yet mate, allegedly he has committed himself to them, but won't go through until Friday (day after Lennon officially signs) but the rumour is he's holding out to see if a prem club will come in for him, as Newcastle pulled out of any transfer.

BTW, liked the rest of your comment

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has had meeting with Christian Purslow last night and things did not go well anyway I expect Rafa will be going to Inter Milan where he will be given £50million to spend after recieving no reassurance's over his transfer budget, it's a game of bluff there is about £20m to be spent but they don't want Rafa to spend it plus he wants to be assured so he can start planning and Liverpool would prefer if Rafa left and another manager could spend it Liverpool are trying to get Rafa to quit so they don't have to pay Benitez £16million while Rafa keeps saying he is staying once he gets assurances over a transfer budget anyway he may actually be off before the world cup kicks off. Liverpool have apparently contacted a number of managers such as Guus Hiddink, Martin O Neill, Marco Van Basten and Roy Hodgson but it will be Kenny Daglish who will be taking over until next summer when the takeover is complete and a new successor can be found.

RANGERS NEWS
joe ledley was not at lennoxtown yesterday, this is a fact because everyone who is not going to the world cup are on holiday right now. now to rangers news. expect to see new players to come in aswell as andy webster returning and also expect a few to leave. expect to see rangers to go for ledley aswell as celtic and roma looking at him aswell, the guarantee of going right into the champions league group stage could be the deciding factor in him joining rangers despite their financial difficulties.

To the person who wrote this Ledley wasn't at Lennoxtown yesterday BUT he was there on monday aswell as being shown around Celtic Park, so stop talking rubbish, also he will be joining Celtic in a deal that will net him about £3m. FACT

 

02 Jun 2010 14:45:13
I have just been given some really interesting information which I hope gets published here as it either suggests that either a genuine reward or a political chess game could be going on at one of the premiership clubs. A provisional contract has been drawn up offering an incumbant manager (I don't know who for sure but have some suspisions) a "promotion" to Director of Club Football responsible for overseeing the recruitment, growth and development of ALL squads, backroom staff, scouts and training facilities. All squad managers will then report into the Director who will sanction player purchases and sales. The 1st team though will have a new manager/coach employed who will have control over 1st team selection, tactics, player requests from the reserve squad, given a transfer budget and free reign to submit new player requests.
This promotion could be for a longterm servant or as a way to move one of the incumbant managers out of their current role. It could be used as an effective tool to push them to resigning where termination settlements are no longer an problem or worse case the club continues to pay them their current salary for a "high profile role" while getting some deliverables back from them. Would be a clever way to "remove" a problem manager and avoid expensive settlements and also test their club loyalty (important to the fans). I'm afraid I don't know where the contract is going only that it has been drawn up by an experienced employment solicitor and forwarded to the club chairman in question to fill in the blanks (club name and incumbants name).
If anyone else has any information on this.

Michael.

To the guy that said this: 'To all the Arsenal fans going on about signing Gourcuff because the club have made contact with his father:

That contact is regarding the Lorient defender, not Yoann. Christian Gourcuff is not Yoann's agent, so making contact with him would be of no use whatsoever.'

U are chattin rubbish mate. Iv got a genuine source of info which is comin from my niece in france who rents her villa to gourcuff. She's saying that his 2 year tenancy is up and he is likely to move on coz he doesn't wna renew. He's interested in arsenal because he will fill fabregas's role and coz chamakh is there and of course arsene wenger. My niece was chattin to me bout this last nyt on my wall of my facebook page.

Onto real stories, it is well know in and around Old Trafford that club officials traveled to Graz a few days ago. Whether that was to talk about Rooney's new contract amid interest from Mourinho or sign up Joe Cole is still in question. Now that Harry Redknapp has come out and said Cole may have agreed a deal with another club, I am sure he will join Utd after the WC.



I'm not saying that this isn't true but I was under the impression that Capello had banned all club representatives from entering camp and from discussing anything with players until after the world cup.

I work in the Arsenal museum at the Emirates and word going around this morning is a contract for Cesc to sign for barca is being brought to spains world cup camp, a few numbers have been banded about but 42million is the general amount talked about..However, ive heard from more that one person this morning that there may be a clause in the contract that would see Fabregas stay at the emirates for one more season on loan.Its thought Barcelona were keen to get the deal done in this window cos fear was growing that madrid would come in with an offer Arsenal couldnt refuse once mourinho took over..Also doing the rounds this morning is Joe cole will sign on a free after the world cup, he has verbally agreed, also talk of Eduardo being loaned to Newcastle

Love silly season its great isn't it?

Joe Cole is signing for Liverpool with Benayoun going to Chelsea agreement already in place but with Capello's rules re transfer dealings nothing can be announced yet

Simon Kjaer has been approached by officials at Liverpool and is his preference of club, but Arsenal have offered him guaranteed first team football, something Liverpool could not. Another interesting twist is Gary Cahill's possible move to Arsenal which would leave the promise of first team football there in some doubt..unless Arsene Wenger is looking to move to three at the back

Ryan Babel looks to be on his way out, the World Cup his window as Turan looks to come in, but will only come in if Babel is sold. A possible makweight is Albert Riera, but the player would rather go back to Spain..Villereal a possible destination

With regards to the Club Ownership, it is believed there are actually two bids on the table currently being scrutinised by Mr Broughton. Both bidders come from the middle east, with one having a connection to the IPL.

Rangers will sell Bougherra and shore up the defence with Gary Kenneth from Dundee utd along with Davy Weir (Player of the Year!!) and Webster. When Boyd leaves Goodwille and Kyle will come in to back up Naismith, Miller, Lafferty and Fleck.

TO GUNNER J,


You obviously have not thought about what I informed you all about. Otherwise your comments would be retracted.

Wenger is in discussons with several players, including Reina at Liverpool. It may not materialise I said earlier.

Contracts sadly are not worth what they were years ago. So when you say Reina has signed a 6 year deal recently with Liverpool. it is subject to various guarantees like all contracts are!
Hint hint !

Champions League football is one of the constraints and Liverpool are not in European competition next year. So his clause can be activated by Arsenal in thoery. Hence, Wenger is in the frame.

Gunner J, please stop and think before making offensive personal comments. This is a rumours site not a personal attacks site. It shows your level of thinking sadly.


Saba Al Khair (dealing in football rumours only) {editor's note there is no Champions League clause in Reina's contract at all. Arsenal made one bid for him, it was rejected out of hand, that is all that has happened. There are no ongoing talks or negotiations whatsoever. Whether or not Arsenal will make another bid is a different matter, but they certainly are not in contact with Reina right now.}

Of any player currently in the Liverpool squad right now, Reina is the one person that I would put money on being at the club next season. He seems to be completely entranced by the club and the city, and would only be tempted by a move to Atletico as he is a massive fan and would like to follow his father. As Atletico have neither the money nor Reina the intention to leave (at least not for another 7 or 8 years) I would suggest that your rumour is undeniably false.

02 Jun 2010 13:10:21
Is the Jimmy Bullard rumour a done deal or is it just a rumour?? I think Bullard and Ledley (if we can get him) would be a good centre midfield and would free Brown up to have a more advanced role. Dnt think its realistic to say were gonna get anyone like Keane or Bellamy but we do need a good centre forward who can play up front on his own if needed. I would like to see us get shot of samaras, mizuno, hinkel (time to give caddis a run in the team), naylor, mcmanus, odea, zhi and then if we get good offers for McGeady (89million) Boruc (3million) and Fortune (23million) we should let them go. Need to start giving the younger players a go, the likes of ferry, caddis and forrest.

As for Rangers. I honestly think Rangers will pull a good signing out the bag, walter smiths had a habit of signing players at a smallish fee and raising their proflie (Bougherra, Davis, Cuellar and even Edu is coming onto a game).

Think the league will be a good'n this year.

A takeover will not happen in next few weeks Hicks said on SSN it will take months to do

They have valued the club way over the odds £600800m nobody will buy at that price

Gerrard/Torres\Mascherano/Bennayoun could all leave

Broughton is a Chelsea season ticket holder and any hint of a chelsea bid for Torres then this guy should be sacked.

Benitez says he wants to say yet every other day in the press there is a story about how a "close friend" has revealed Rafa's thoughts on staying/leaving Rafa is trying to force the club to make him go by releasing contradictory stories right after the board tell us one thing e.g Hicks says there are substantial funds for transfers few days later a Close friend of Rafa says there is nothing to spend?

Its sickening and needs to be sorted one way or an other !!

To all the Arsenal fans going on about signing Gourcuff because the club have made contact with his father:

That contact is regarding the Lorient defender, not Yoann. Christian Gourcuff is not Yoann's agent, so making contact with him would be of no use whatsoever.

Onto real stories, it is well know in and around Old Trafford that club officials traveled to Graz a few days ago. Whether that was to talk about Rooney's new contract amid interest from Mourinho or sign up Joe Cole is still in question. Now that Harry Redknapp has come out and said Cole may have agreed a deal with another club, I am sure he will join Utd after the WC.

Utd have also made a bid for David Silva, but that is below Valencia's evaluation and the offer made by City. Silva would definitely prefer joining Utd and would have to insist that Valencia accept the offer. The same situation could occur between Cesc and Arsenal.

{editor's note there is no Champions League clause in Reina's contract at all. Arsenal made one bid for him, it was rejected out of hand, that is all that has happened. There are no ongoing talks or negotiations whatsoever. Whether or not Arsenal will make another bid is a different matter, but they certainly are not in contact with Reina right now.}
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Actually this is wrong, and as I'm disagreeing with the editor I doubt this will get onto the site but Reina DOES have a CL clause in his contract. However when the deal was signed it was signed with the knowledge that Liverpool were unlikely to finish in the top four this season so the clause will not come into effect until next season. This is why such a clause was denied because in practise there is no clause that can be activated this summer. However if Liverpool fail to qualify in the upcoming season then the clause will be triggered and it will be a different story.

Arsenal pulled out of a deal to sign Kjaer last week. It appears that Koscielny is the number one target now. The reason for this is because Wenger wants to get a good relationship with Lorient boss Christian Gourcuff in the hope that he can help persuade his son (Yoann Gourcuff) to leave Bordeaux and join Arsenal. Obviously Gourcuff Snr has no direct influence over Yoann but as his father Wenger hopes he advise his son to move to the UK.

Arsenal now want 4 players for the summer Koscielney, Chamakh (done), Gourcuff and Cole.
It's felt that with Campbell set to sign a new deal 4 cbs will be enough, with Song able to fill in as well. Diaby, Denilson will back up Song in DM, with Cesc and Gourcuff playing ahead of them. Gourcuff will fill the role Diaby played this season. It's a slight change of role for him but Wenger feels he has the ability to adapt. Cole is being brought in to replace Rosicky who is on his way back to Germany. Finally Arsenal are looking to offload Eduardo, and if they manage it they will make a bid for Lukaku from Anderlecht. Any move for Hazard is likely to be left til January, however if another club moves for him Wenger might have his hand forced.

In the know {editor's note – you are obviously not in the know about Reina, sorry!}

Regarding Henry comments, I will stand my ground and put my neck out on the line, despite any talk of Liverpool being interested, he won't go to either. He will be MLS bound.

Regards Reina, who'd have thought a bid would actually go in for him from Arsenal. I just don't see Wenger stumping up that much cash with Szczęsny coming through to return with an improved bid. Anything short of £25 million will be rejected straight away. For that reason Wenger shall look elsewhere.

Joe Cole to Arsenal
Banegna to Liverpool
Mascherano to Barcalona
Pepe Reina to stay at Liverpool, he loves the reds.
Still not sure on gerrard, possible move to Real Madrid.
Benayoun to Chelsea as a replacment for Joe Cole.

Saba Al Khair,

It was not a personal attack, just a sensible observation. Yes some say contracts are not worth their paper that they are printed on, but Reina signing a 6 year deal in early April when Liverpool were nowhere near in contention for the CL shows a clear intention that he isn't going anywhere.

Reina is a young, promising keeper with 6 years left on his deal would command a whacking great fee that Wenger would never seriously stump up, and Liverpool would never sell. So why Wenger bothered to make any bid is another question but one that can't be rationally considered without talking to Wenger first hand. Plus why do we need an expensive keeper when we've got Szczęsny coming through any replacement will be cheap, experienced and temporary.

Any further contact with Liverpool for Reina will be ignored. For that reason (and after my level of thinking apparently), I'm criticising the rumour; not yourself Mr. Al Khair.

gOOner_J (emphasis added)

 

02 Jun 2010 12:15:41
Arsenal are Very close to Signing Koscielny. Wenger is Contemplating loaning out Coquelin to sweeten the deal. They are still in Talks but Wenger is about to up his bid to £5.5m. Although Christian Gourcuff is holding out for £7m it is thought that his respect for Arsene and the loaning of Coquelin will lower the price. Christian Gourcuff will have another Major role if Arsenal are to Sign another one of their Targets. Wenger is still not sure whether Barca will Cough up the money to Buy Cesc and doesn't Yet want to bid for Yoann Gourcuff and has therefore asked Christian to advise Yoann to stay at Bordeaux until after the World Cup when Arsene will probably make the offer. If Lyon do make a Bid for Yoann then Christian will inform Arsene and Arsene will Probably make the bid. Joe Cole to Arsenal Rumours are completely false. Arsene made an inquiry but got the same response that Harry Redknapp did, that he's already made his mind up where he's going (Manchester United). A Goalkeeper will be the Final signing. Arsene is not looking for a long term option but rather shortterm. Schwarzer is the main target but look out for a surprise signing.

In the Know.

 

02 Jun 2010 12:25:57
Leeds Utd

Talks are been held with paytner and should be expected to sign anytime this week. however he will not be replacement for Beckford.

Other Rumours
Hulse/Sharp Replace Beckford

Hooper looks very doubtful as Boro have put a high bid in which we can't compete with obvs.

Montgomery but rumour is he as signed a new contract at blades

Watt season long loan

Doyle sign permanent. havent heard anything from this though , its just what i expect.

Becchio is not leaving and Snoddgrass is not leaving

However Grayson dosnt give anything away about his targets when its transfer season so for all we care he could be signing liam dickinson ( JOKE ) so we'll just have to wait and see

Arsenal Fans:

Gourcuff = 21.8 mill? is that pounds or euros??
Ozil = 20 mill? same question??
Reina = £16 mill lol

Arsenal's highest paid fee ever is Arseshaven, rumoured to be £15.5 mill.

I do not expect any signings of over £12 mill, even that would need to be a big name!

I expect in:

Sorenson £8 mill.
N'Zogbia £7 mill.
2xCB £36 mill.

Out:

Fabregas Barca £47 mill no replacement coming in, Nasri will be given the chance to take on the position, if he is not up to scratch (I think he is) expect a attacking mid field in Jan but still £15 mill max. Wenger sees Ramsey and walshire in this position in seasons to come.

Sol, I can't see this, he knows he is only happy when playing for Arsenal and he would get 10 15 PL games no prob!

all others will be loans or out on free so don't interest me, Im interested in money in and money out.

Jan window will be very interesting unless we are in the top two of PL!

barcelona have finally made a bid for fabregas, the bid is believed to be between 3040m! so it finally begins.

 

02 Jun 2010 12:32:10
Rangers are to offer a contract to Kevin Kyle in next few days. His negotiations with Aberdeen broke down and this made Walter consider him. He is seen as a cheap options with no transfer fee and suitable squad player.

Joe Ledley will make a decision on move but both Old Firm teams likely to miss out. Premiership teams are looking at situation and expect him to sign for Everton before the start of next season.

There will not be much movement at Ibrox as Walter is looking for value for money and he does not have a lot. McArthur and Goodwillie are on the radar but still out of Rangers financial reach.

Bougherra is still likely to leave with Gers holding out for 7million and Kirk Broadfoot also likely to leave on a free. If Boughy goes (prob less than 7m nearer 5m)expect moves for McArthur, Goodwillie and Gary Kenneth.

Celtic are looking for British players and Bullard on his way. Lennon still to be announced however its imminent. Rumours of McGeady leaving are wide of mark. He will stay at Celtic and sign a new deal. Expect others out the door though inc Boruc, Hinkel, McCourt, Samaras and Crosas. Unlikely that any of last seasons loan players joining permanently expect major player changes at Celtic this year.

Both Old Firm teams will look different and have smaller squads but both will promote the use of youths in the first team and hopefully this will lead to a tighter league title this year round.

Please stop saying that man utd will buy 56 players..utd will probably buy 23 players (one for free) like last year with valencia (16 mil) obertan (3 mil) and owen (Free).
Most likely a midfielder and an experienced striker in his 20's.My guess is Van Der Vaart, Benzema (he refused us last year cuz he wanted more money)But is likely that he will join man utd this year..and Joe Cole for free.
P.S. Please stop posting dream teams and start posting realistic rumours

02 Jun 2010 11:48:25
Totally right about Pepe Reina. arsenal supposedly made a £16m bid, but i doubt they would spend so much on a goalkeeper.
I personally would like Pepe. he has overtaken Petr Cech as no1 premier league goalkeeper.
Harry Redknapp seems to like Joe Cole but looks like he is admitting that Cole himself has made his mind up on his destination.
My friend in Austria keeps telling me about the Walcott Gerrard rumour but has no more info as they are no longer there.
Methinks Anfield will be busier than everybody is anticipating!

 

02 Jun 2010 11:47:24
I've heard since Malaga were recently taken over by Arabs, they want to sign Albert Riera for around £68m. Benitez also wants rid of Yossi Benayoun, with Chelsea, Tottenham, West Ham and AS Roma interested Liverpool hoping to start bidding war but will get around £7.5m. Both will be replaced with Simao Sabrosa for around £9m and Martin Petrov on a free transfer. Joe Cole is leaving London for either Manchester United or Liverpool, which one I have no idea. Yoann Gourcouff is a prime target for Arsenal whether or not Fabregas leaves, , he has a release clause of 25m euros. Jose Mourinho wants to bring Maicon and Ashley Cole to Madrid, each would cost over £30m. Expect few departures from Real Madrid only Guti and Raul may leave until Mourinho has a good look at the squad. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is leaving for Manchester City a £40m bid will be enough to convince Barca to sell and use the money to buy Fabregas or Mascherano. Chelsea want Yaya Toure, Kaka and Sergio Aguero. Man Utd want Angel Di Maria, Luis Suarez or Edin Dzeko.

 

02 Jun 2010 11:45:21
Fabregas to only leave for 6070 million Euros or 50 million + Marquez and one or two other players.

Yaya Toure wanting to join Chelsea over Arsenal and City fee expected to be around 2225 million.

Gourcuff, Ozil or Ander Herrera to be Fabregas's replacement if he leaves. Gourcuff is also interesting Lyon and Man City and is valued at around 21.8 million, Ozil strongly linked with Real, Barca and Man City as well as Arsenal and is valued at 20 million. Herrera (1015 million) will only join if moves for the other 2 fail.

Negotiations for Laurent Koscielny are progressing with a 5 million offer on the table which was rejected. Arsenal are expected to come back and offer 6 million + Coquelin on loan.

Sakho is another target, despite what some people have said about PSG wanting 25 million they would do well to get 812 million with the possibility of Traore or Fabianski going the other way.

Sebastian Frey could be a target after sports chief Corvino it will be "difficult to keep the current crop of player together". Fiorentina would want around 810 million.

 

02 Jun 2010 11:45:27
If mascherano leaves to barca, liverpool will recieve 25m + bojan on loan for next year. The replacement for javier will be Steven defour 15m from standard and the additional 10 m will be used with shirt sponsorship money to secure a new left back and left winger preferably kolarov and simao. The bojan loan would work great for Liverpool because by the time the loan expires next June, the takeover will be complete and we can buy a new players.

 

02 Jun 2010 11:30:54

How can so many of you think J Cole is going to Man U, why on earth would he go to Man U. Cole has won the league with Chelsea and has experienced success, he's not looking to sign for a winning team, he just wants to play football week in week out. The only clubs with a chance of signing him are:

Liverpool (favourites)
Everton (if he joins you'll see piernaar leaving)
Aston Villa (if he joins you'll see milner leaving to Liverpool, Man C or Man U)

Also Carrick to Aston Villa in a money + player swap deal for Milner for United.

REMEMBER THIS!

Yep, I'll have a go, firstly the reason that ex players/directors don't know anything is because they are EX players/directors, broughton has tried to keep a tight lid on the internal workings of the deal from as many people as possible until he is ready to make his recommendations.

Current players don't know, current directors won't say too much because they want to still be in a job when new "owners"come in.

Some of the sources I've spoken too work in the "banking"sector and others work in a form of venture capital brokering, but basically I've been told to be very surprised if it ain't shiek Mohammed who wins the ownership race, just because by all accounts he is dodgedly trying to out wit his "rivals".

But there is also confirmed interest from qia, and a Saudi is waiting on the wings with news on the developments.

The trouble as regards to why no deal has been announced is because tom hicks wants extra from the stadium, ie plans and actual build because he stands to make more money.

And please font trust sky to much, the blonde bimbo made a story up and soon retracted it, sky is very much the verbal version of the scum newspaper, and despite what the sky installer, muppet Murdoch says on here it's still a crap piece of news, that are only good when it's been confirmed.

Hicks is talking to "sky" because he wants to emphasis the stadium project being ready for new owners, again he still trying to big himself up.
But in Texas he's admitted that he wants out of all sports ventures, because he us a failure within these areas, and yet sky has neglected to mention any of this why?because murdoch loves to control his media and he loves to stir it against anything to do with Liverpool.

To the guy talking about Ledley having no chance of going to Celtic.

Ledley actually was in Glasgow yesterday and he was given a tour of Celtics training facilities at Lennoxtown.

I'm a Rangers fan and think he would be an idiot to even consider coming to the SPL at the moment, especially to Celtic who will not be playing Champions League football next season, and probably won't for a good half decade or so. The only reason Rangers will be in the champions league is because we get automatic entry for winning the league.

Your claims that ledley wasn't in Glasgow yesterday are wrong, because he was in Lennoxtown.

TH has now gone back to original offer of 5p with an ulitimatun its this or nothing. The statement released this morning is an effort by Hemmings to force shaws hand by making it public and getting the fans on side.

He is hoping that now shaw has nothing to hide behind he has to sell or it will be his fault the club dies.

Other signings will be Swansea duo Ashley Williams and Dazza Pratley for a joint fee of 2m. Cardiff could make it a triple swoop from the gypos as they have expressed an interest in Alan Tate who has always talked about his desire to play for Cardiff. At last the final signing will be funded by Solomon Taiwo's big money move to Norwich. Unfortunately I can't reveal any details about it though.

TO GUNNER J,


You obviously have not thought about what I informed you all about. Otherwise your comments would be retracted.

Wenger is in discussons with several players, including Reina at Liverpool. It may not materialise I said earlier.

Contracts sadly are not worth what they were years ago. So when you say Reina has signed a 6 year deal recently with Liverpool. it is subject to various guarantees like all contracts are!
Hint hint !

Champions League football is one of the constraints and Liverpool are not in European competition next year. So his clause can be activated by Arsenal in thoery. Hence, Wenger is in the frame.

Gunner J, please stop and think before making offensive personal comments. This is a rumours site not a personal attacks site. It shows your level of thinking sadly.


Saba Al Khair (dealing in football rumours only) {editor's note – there is no Champions League clause in Reina's contract at all. Arsenal made one bid for him, it was rejected out of hand, that is all that has happened. There are no ongoing talks or negotiations whatsoever. Whether or not Arsenal will make another bid is a different matter, but they certainly are not in contact with Reina right now.}

 

02 Jun 2010 10:32:45
Leeds have never put in a bid for billy sharp,
Billy Sharps words 'I've not heard anything from Leeds'

also Leeds haven't not bidded for Gary Hooper either

Expect Billy Paynter to sign and Leeds are also looking at Jason Robert or Marlon Harewood both out of contract
has Beckford replacement

very little money will spent on fee, Grayson looking out for bargain and loans

West Ham News: Avram Grant to be named as manager today or tomorrow. He will be given £15m to spend and funds from players sales could also be used. Gold, Sullivan and Grant are currently looking at 4050 players, this list will be narrowed down and only some will be signed. Avram Grant wants to take Portsmouth quartet, Ben Haim, Nadir Belhadj, KP Boateng and David James with him. Julian Speroni(£1m) will also be signed if Robert Green leaves for Schalke. Luke Young will join the Hammers for a fee of (£2.5m). Martin Petrov will be Grants first signing on a free transfer and this will be announced shortly after Grant is announced as manager. If Cole(£15m) leaves West Ham will make a new bid for Yakubu, he is keen to join but West Ham will only reach half of Evertons asking price which is £10m, but are considering using a squad player as a makeweight. If this bid fails they will make an offer for Villa forward John Carew or Man City's Roque Santa Cruz (Including Matthew Upson in both deals). Finally Henry is seriously considering a move to West Ham and it is 50/50 between us and the New York Red Bulls.

One more thing, right now forlan's manager is having lunch with my uncle who is in fener board.we are hoping to finish it since our player lugano who is another uruguay player is insisting to sign him.

martin g. pedersen's manager was here last week too, they asked for only money.our chairman got angry and left the dinner early.player himself had a friend from norway.he called president regarding this point and informed player is ready to sign deal since fener is offering crazy amounts.but chairman denied.

Leeds Update: John Eustace may not now be at Leeds, as the newspaper article stating He now is was removed from the watford observer site and his current club has changed back to Watford on wikipedia

 

02 Jun 2010 10:00:12
Has everyone touting Henry to go to another English club been smoking crack?! The man himself has said the only English team he has, and would ever play for is ARSENAL. So you and all other armchair utd fans get into your thick skulls that this isn't Championship Manger. Henry to New York Red Bulls on a free.

Next, Joe Cole to United is far from a done deal. Despite 'arry Kidknapp claiming a move to the yids isn't happening (thank god), even if he does go to united, where would he play? Park, Anderson, Carrick, Nani, Scholes, Fletcher are already fighting for centre mid/attacking mid so you'll have to clear A LOT of deadwood before Cole will sign for a team in a similar situation where he came from he wants games; not to be benchwarming. Who knows where he'll go but he will be on the move.

FIRST OF ALL HENRY IS DEAD AND BURIED NOW, HIS PLAYING DAYS ARE NUMBERED, HE IS NO LONGER GOOD ENOUGH TO PLAY IN THE PREMIERSHIP.

ALSO JOE COLE PLAYS LEFT WING OR SITS JUST BEHIND THE STRIKER, BOTH POSITIONS NEED FILLING AT UNITED AS NANI IS NATURAL RIGHT WINGER, FLETCHER, CARRICK AND EVEN SCHOLES HAVE BEEN PLAYING DEFENSIVE MIDFIELD SO THEY WILL NOT BE A PROBLEM, GIGGS & SCHOLES WILL BE PLAYING LESS GAMES NEXT SEASON AND ARE BOTH HAPPY TO SIT ON THE BENCH! PARK PLAYS A BIT PART ROLE ALSO, HE GOES WEEKS NOT BEING PICKED AND NEVER COMPLAINS SO YOUR THEORY IS FLAWED I'M AFRAID LAD, JOE COLE WILL NOT JUST FIT INTO UNITED OKAY, HE IS EXACTLY WHAT UNITED NEED AND HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR!

PAPERS ARE CLAIMING IT IS UNITED, SPURS OR ARSENAL IN THE RUNNING, MOST PAPERS AGREE THAT HE HAS ALREADY SIGNED FOR ONE OF THEM AND THAT IT WILL BE ANNOUNCED AFTER THE WORLD CUP, HARRY COULD BE BLUFFING BUT UNLIKELY SO YOU WOULD HAVE TO SAY ITS BETWEEN UNITED AND ARSENAL WHO HAVE SIGNED HIM? WHO IS BEST AT KEEPING THINGS SECRET? DID ANYONE KNOW UNITED WERE AFTER SMALLING UNTIL THE DAY THEY BID FOR HIM? (NO) DID ANYONE KNOW ABOUT LITTLE PEA? (NO) DID EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT CHAMAKH? (YES) DO EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT KOSCIELNY? (YES) SO WHO KNOWS!

LIVERPOOL COULD NEVER KEEP THIS UNDER WRAPS, IT WOULD CERTAINLY BE RUMOURED AROUND ON PURPOSE TO KEEP FANS INTERESTED AND NO PAPERS ARE SAYING LIVERPOOL ARE IN THE RUNNING SO I THINK THEY HAVE NOT SIGNED HIM! UNITED HAVE SENT CLUB OFFICIALS TO GRAZ RECENTLY SO COULD IT BE TO TIE UP JOE COLE?

WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE?

Joe cole has signed for Liverpool on a 3year deal..henry and guti unlikely.but big news on silva and forlan..

 

02 Jun 2010 09:50:32
JOE COLE to ARSENAL.. The second of the free transfers Ivan Gazidis was negotiating, the other being Chamakh. Gourcuff will be signing for Arsenal from Bordeaux, as Wenger has been in contact with his Father Christian, who manages Lorient, from whom Arsenal will sign centre back Laurent Koscielny, with excellent young prospect Francis Coquelin going to Lorint on loan for a season. Fabreags will go to Barcalona assuming they successfully negotiate the fee. Failing which he will remain at Arsenal, to play in the same team as Gourcuff, a mouth watering proposition.

Hi from turkey.here it has been told that arda turan is ready to sdign for liverpool as he keep reporting that he is a big fan.
galatasaray is will continue to be the rubbish of premier league next season.grella will join i guess.also chelsea's stoch who returned from a loan from twente is very close to be loaned to gs.but fenerbahce has offered a good price to chelsea.we will see.
also fenerbahce has lost championship so big moves are expected.t.henry, forlan, krasic of cska and a big surprise quaresma are the names on the lines.

now ten foreign players are allowed this season so clubs will be signing 34 extra foreigners.

 

02 Jun 2010 09:29:49
Anthony stokes going to rangers? i actually don't know what to say to that! i cannot see an rep. irish player signing for rangers and neither can anybody else with their head properly scwered on!

joe ledley has recently been to lennoxtown and parkhead to have talks with celtic. this does not mean he is definetely signing but celtic do have the upperhand as big john hartson has has a few conversations with the fellow welshman, putting in a good word for celtic.

david goodwillie won't be going to rangers as ws rarely signs spl players that don't do well against celtic

gary hooper deal with celtic is dead, this will be revealed shortly, as celtic are unwilling to pay over 2.5mil for a relatively unproven player

sean st ledger will only be signed if celtic fail to snap up sol campbell or one of the centrebacks are sold

celtic will not sign liam lawrence. i have been told LL wants too much by way of wages. I don't want to hear that he will be coming to CP because he is irish because he is actually english!

Wow! I've just heard from a mate (he's one of the 4 managers down at the club shop) at Cardiff City Stadium that a deal to bring Craig Bellamy down to Cardiff is nearing completion.

It's thought that it'll be in the form of a seasonlong loan, with Cardiff paying £25,000 towards his wages.

They are aiming to announce the deal on Friday, however my mate reckons that it might take until early next week to be finalised.

Either way, it's looking positive and this is from a manager down at the club (he's one of Peter Ridsdale's friends and so he definitely knows his stuff!)

NEWS FROM THE EMIRATES !


Firstly, I will correct some people who are just wishing rather than using sources / facts.

1. Joe Cole is NEVER coming to the Arsenal. Please stop the false comments.

2. Gary Cahil is not coming either.

3. Hangeland will not come as Wenger will not pay 10 million+ for an old player almost 30 now. He never has and never will.

4. Taylor was never in the frame. Stop this silly rumour.


Now, some actual facts from my source who can shed some light.


Wenger has been talking to several clubs for 7 players only in the pipeline. Not all will come, but it is only 7 at this stage.

Only 3 are known (given to me) so I will put false names.


THE 3 SO FAR BEING DISCUSSED..


1. Stephen Ireland (MAN CITY) Approx 78 million.
Young, within Wenger's price range and has Premier league experience.

2. Mexes (Defender) Young ish, experience and available for approx 12 million range.

3. The big one.. Reina (Liverpool) this is still alive despite what people say publically. 14 Million bid refused. Wenger thinking about player exchange maybe involving Walcott ironically.
Complex deal hence taking its time to materialise.


These 3 could happenbut these are developments at this stage not some wild dreams..

To the spanner who said this..

"01 Jun 2010 23:44:50

There are three bits of business left do be concluded at Old Trafford by SAF. These are:
1) Joe Cole free
2) Thierry Henry free
3) Rafael van der Vaart £13m"

Has everyone touting Henry to go to another English club been smoking crack?! The man himself has said the only English team he has, and would ever play for is ARSENAL. So you and all other armchair utd fans get into your thick skulls that this isn't Championship Manger. Henry to New York Red Bulls on a free.

Next, Joe Cole to United is far from a done deal. Despite 'arry Kidknapp claiming a move to the yids isn't happening (thank god), even if he does go to united, where would he play? Park, Anderson, Carrick, Nani, Scholes, Fletcher are already fighting for centre mid/attacking mid so you'll have to clear A LOT of deadwood before Cole will sign for a team in a similar situation where he came from he wants games; not to be benchwarming. Who knows where he'll go but he will be on the move.

I can't pick holes in your VDV rumour this looks to be as reliable as most rumours flying around. 50/50 depending on how heavy handed Mourinho wants to be.

Moving onto gooner rumours..

Upfront

No more ins. Chamakh will be the only deal. However either Eddy or Vela will be sold/loaned.

Midfield

Gourcuff straight dog fight between Lyon and Arsenal both prepared to meet £22m buyout clause. Player prefers a move to the Grove, so this one could happen IF Fabregas leaves.

Eden Hazard this one has some legs and could be done in the January window if any more players leave in midfield.

Rosicky isn't going anywhere signed a new deal a couple of months ago. Merida done deal to Atletico. If Gourcuff were to arrive with Fabregas set to stay, I'd be incredibly surprised considering in the centre we already have Cesc, Diaby, Nasri, Denilson, Wilshere (loan) and Ramsey (injured). But then again stranger things have happened..

Defence

Two of the following will arrive: Simon Kjaer/ Laurent Koscielny/Gary Cahill to compensate the outs..

Gallas, Silvestre and Senderos (possibly Campbell) all on frees. Sagna to Inter Milan?! Red top muck doing it's rounds.

Keepers

Wojciech Szczęsny. Who you may ask? Due to the rise of this young Pole, no long term solution e.g. Lloris shall be sought. Genuinely exited as we have a real prospect here. This is why rumours of Schwarzer aren't as daft as they may seem. 2 years from now Szczesny will be the new no. 1.

I don't know why Wenger places any trust in Fabianski but he should be transferred if not sacked, Almunia and Mannone will fight out for the no. 2 slot as a keeper will come in. Schwarzer/Toldo/Cesar are the likely ones to be considered as all are over 30 and experienced.

Time for some news from the Nou Camp, bar Cesc Fabregas and Thierry Henry, the Barcelona rumours have been few and far between.

On Pep Guardiola's list is an amazing move for Tottenham left back/winger Gareth Bale on a 20 million euro deal, with possibly Bojan Krkic joining Spurs on a one year loan deal, thus seeing the deal fall to only 15 million euros.

Luis Suarez WILL join from Ajax for 40 million euros IF Cesc Fabregas has not joined before July 31st. If Fabregas has joined (expected) then Suarez will join Chelsea. Barcelona is his first choice.

Monreal will sign from Osasuna in a 3 million euro deal.

Yossi Benayoun will also arrive from the Premier League in an 8.4 million euro deal.

Thats an interesting post as he was missing from Rovers game on the weekend as he was getting married apparently. He is a top striker in League of Ireland and probably could make the step up to CCC.

As already announced, John Eustace has ''verbally'' agreed to sign tomorrow morning 9am. Where he will be unveiled at Elland Road.

Kelvin Etuhu will join from Manchester City for £500,000 joining former blue Kasper Schmeichel at Leeds.

Paul Caddis will be invited for talks, but this is all I have for now. He is unsure about his future, and I understand his wife does not want to leave Glasgow.

Hope this helps some Leeds supporters

Nottingham Forest line up a £2m bid for Cardiff City midfieldace Peter Whittingham. Although Billy Davies states the intention to be humble next season, the January debacle clearly showed the need for fresh blood in the Forest squad, particularly on the left hand side.

Derby County have some money to spend. Using their established links with Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, we could see young Giles Sunu return to Pride park as well as fourth choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

If Paul Green moves to Blackpool for £1.5 million, then Billy Sharp or Reuben Reid will join the Rams. First 3 deal I mention are as good as done. Latter 3 depend on ongoing negotiations.

across on the blue end goodwillie will be in ibrox next year as he thinks ally can turn him into the complete striker as he feels he has most things in his game but needs more goals, expect boughera to still be at ibrox next year and andy webster handing in a transfer request, apparently alot of young boys will be given their chance to prove they have what it takes.

St mirren news:

Steve Clarke will be the next manager. Good source my uncle works with his uncle and he keeps telling him he wants to move back to Scotland and has a job in paisley lined up. I am telling the truth because I am a Celtic fan.

I have it on good authority that Habib Beye will join Everton for £1 million this summer after enduring a terrible stint at European rivals Aston Villa.

Another player leaving Villa is Andy Marshall who has seen his contract expire, after not playing a single first team game for Villa. He is set to join Doncaster, who are looking to replace Neil Sullivan who is set to join Hull City tomorrow (Thursday).

It has emerged that Theo Walcott did not just lose his spot due to amateur performances, apparently Capello has given him many instructions to follow during the last two games and he has completely shunned him, Capello had sat him down to watch videos telling the boy what he wanted him to do and in both games he has ignored him, whether its being ignorant or whether he is just stupid its unknown!

Capello gave him a second chance against Japan and he done the same, so there you have it, this is why he never made it! This is 100% true it will be on the back page of one of the papers tomorrow! Whether the papers source is 100% its unknown but Capello will confirm it as he always speaks his mind!

9 Premier League clubs have made enquiries regards the availability of former Arsenal man Thierry Henry.
Although the frenchman still prefers to follow David Beckham's footsteps in MLS the extensive Premier League list of; Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Everton, West Ham, Tottenham, Birmingham and Bolton have all been in touch with Thierry's agent, who has himself insisted that Thierry will make no decision until '' after France have won the World Cup''

''Joe Cole has apparently already signed for a club outside London, Harry Redknapp has today said that feedback from his agent suggested a deal had already been struck elsewhere and Cole is looking to move out of London for a change of scenery, in my opinion it is either Manchester United or Liverpool as I don't think Joe Cole will move to Man. City, Everton or Aston Villa.

No, Harry didn't say that. What he DID say is that he thinks Cole has already agreed a transfer with a team. But he did not say it was a team outside London.''

ITS LIVERPOOL, I TOLD YOU ALL LAST WEEK

DANB.

There are three bits of business left do be concluded at Old Trafford by SAF. These are:
1) Joe Cole free
2) Thierry Henry free
3) Rafael van der Vaart £13m

Fergie was left exacerbated last season by utds lack of creativity hence the calibre of creative talant above. Fergie is also sniffing out a swap deal with Milan, berbatov for ronaldhino. If this comes off united could be scary next season!

Outgoing expect to see some loans out of kids plus the departures of tosic, Anderson, berbatov and carrick.

Im afraid to tell u ur FACT is deadly wrong mate. joe ledley was DEFINETLY at lennoxtown yesterday and parkhead, however that doesn't mean hes going to sign for celtic altho they have stole a march on other bidding teams, FACT is hes in italy 2day with his agent meeting claudio ranierri. hes looking for at LEAST 25K a wk with addon's, a fee rangers couldnt ever afford in their current status and that's no bias of any kind, its just common knowledge. altho i did hear rangers were closing in on a loan swoop for wee jimmy krankie, hes thought to be a ready made replacement for boydy but still not due as much wages as kyle lafferty, how rangers could justify payin that baffoon a higher wage than their record goalscorer is just beyond a joke
