Leeds ar rumoured to have an intererest in Norwich's Wes Hoolahan.
Grayson mangaged Hoolahan at Blackpool and said to be willing to pay around £2 Million pounds.


I only said 'Rumoured' Norwich may well have more of a chance than Leeds yet if an offer was received that the club thought was beneficial it would be hard to refuse.

2 million for Wes from Leeds would not be hard to refuse at all. You, for now, are a rival, you don't have 2 mil to spend and Wes is currently enjoying the best football of his career under a manager that values him highly, the fans love him. Ive not heard your 'rumour' sounds like one that began and ended with you.

Doncaster Rovers chairman John Ryan believes the club require another eight (8) points to survive in the Championship this season. An internal investigation has concluded in the playing surface at the Keepmoat being modified rather than changed during the summer due to the rugby league season taking place. This along with additional funds from the board towards support for sponsored trials of equipment for further hi tec physiology methods being developed to assist & investigate the playing staff capabilities in training, which are being tested out at present in Leeds Carnegie, & Loughborough University, & then will be carried out between the close of this season & the pre-season period/early September of next season on the playing staff.
Very little changes will occur in the playing staff, with only a few players leaving due to contracts ending, & the replacements likely to come from existing loan signings at the club already. Gary Woods will be given every opportunity, as Neil Sullivan moves to become a squad player as he pursues his coaching career in the future. That said there is a believe that a more experienced keeper may be required, & Murphy (Scunthorpe) & Lonergan (Preston) are being considered if these clubs go down & Rovers stays in the Championship.
Rovers are also scouting Montgomery (Sheffield United), St Ledger (Preston) & have considered looking at bringing back one or both ex Rovers players, Chris Brown & Paul Green in order to strengthen the squad based upon the injury problems this season.
There was also discussion about loan signings from QPR next season if these signings are not possible, based upon the friendship of John Ryan & Neil Warnock. A discussion which took place after the recent game between the two clubs at the Keepmoat.
Consideration is also being given to the introduction of a reserve team simply to give those not playing in the first team regularly, some game time. This is hoped to bring on the youth players as well, as Rovers plan to invest long term in their youth policy by bringing more players through in the future towards the first tem. The club realise they must involve more local Doncaster talent, rather than losing it to the young player scouting system of other clubs in the area, noteably those of Barnsley & Leeds United.

Names being whispered around Carrington for a move to City are Critian Ansaldi, Stephen Radu & maybe Andrea Pirlo who is a free agent in the summer. City will loan Mario Balotelli to AC Milan with a view to a permanent move.

Aquilani, Rodriguez, Jovanovic, Krygiakos, Poulsen, Degen, El Zhar, N'Gog, Konchesky, Aurelio, Insua, Pacheco and Ayala are just some of the players who will be leaving Liverpool this summer as Kenny Daglish and Damien Comolli look for a major overhaul of the squad. Top targets are believed to be Ashley Young{an out and out winger with pace and good delivery}, Charlie Adam{a central midfielder who has a fantastic range of passing}, Gary Cahill{ a no nonsense centre half who is fantastic in the air} and Leighton Baines{a very attacking left back who is equally good at defending} while they are also looking to bring in Keisuke Honda{a very versatile player who can play behind the striker and in central midfield but he excels out on the wings with fantastic skill and expert delivery} and Connor Wickham{a very promising young striker who is a self confessed Liverpool fan}. Liverpool squad 2011/12 GK-Reina/Jones/Hansen/Gulasci RB-Johnson/Kelly/ CB-Cahill/Agger/Carragher/Skrtel/Wilson/ LB-Baines/Robinson CDM-Lucas/Spearing/Coady CM-Gerrard/Adam/Meireles/Shelvey RW-Honda/Cole LW-Young/Ince ST-Carroll/Suarez/Kuyt/Wickham/Eccelston/Suso This squad has fantastic balance to it between British and foreign players, youngsters and experienced pros, strength and pace.This is a squad that can compete for the Premier League Title. This will also offer Kenny so many formation's 4-3-3 Reina-Johnson-Cahill-Agger-Baines-Gerrard-Lucas{CDM}-Adam/Meireles-Suarez{RW}-Carroll-Young{LW} 5-3-2 Reina-Johnson-Carragher-Cahill-Agger-Baines-Gerrard-Lucas-Meierles/Adam-Suarez-Carroll 4-4-2 Reina-Kelly-Cahill-Agger-Baines-Honda{RW}-Gerrard-Lucas/Meireles/Adam-Young{LW}-Suarez-Carroll I could go on, my personal preference would be the 4-3-3 with Lucas holding in front of the two centre half's the rest of the team would be allowed to attack , one full back at a time but other than that everyone would be given freedom Gerrard and either Adam or Meireles would support Carroll while Suarez and Young could offer pace creativity and trickery with that starting 11 we would still have one of Meireles or Adam, then Kuyt, Carragher, Honda, Kelly, Cole, Spearing, Skrtel among others in reserve. to bring in these players will cost a lot but not in comparison with what other teams spend Adam and Young are both into the last year of there contract and others such as Cahill and Wickham could try and force through moves with Steve Clarke, King Kenny, Damien Comolli, John W Henry and the rst of the FSG crew the future looks very bright for Liverpool we now have the right people in the back of the club we just need to add a few out the front .Estimates players out will raise approximatley £30. players in Young£16m, Adam£8m, Cahill£12m, Baines£14m, Honda£12m, Wickham£8m Out-£30m In-£70m that's a net spend of around £40m and I have faith that these Americans are true too their word and will put their money where their mouth is.

Grayson mangaged Hoolahan at Blackpool and said to be willing to pay around £2 Million pounds.

- -

, Good one, you aint big any more, you havent got any cash and you are below us in the league not going anywhere. Why would he help us win promotion (not guaranteed yet i know, but looking a lot better than your chances) and then drop back to the Championship to play for Leeds?

The only way you could afford him is if you sell Snodgrass or Gradel (not for 10 & 6 mill as has been suggested by some day dreamers) and we didn't go up and you offered crazy money. We may sell for 2-2.5 mil to a team not in competition with us, but if we were in the champ still, not a chance, hes a match winner and would be suicide to give him to a rival. 100% not going to happen, don't watch this space!
