Hey dudes I am the guy who gave you the rumors of Barton, enrique, cacapa and Smith joining Newcastle last Summer now here are more trusty rumors.
Keegan tabled a £9 million bid for young French forward Bafetimbi Gomis around St. Patrick's day. if it was not for karim benzema the interest over the French starlet would be much greater. he has been compared to Chelsea forward didier Drogba. he currently plays for st. etienne in ligue 1 and he has been having a very good season there scoring 10 + goals in aroud 17 starts
another strong rumor is John arnee Riise and the Liverpool norwegian has fallen out of favor with Rafa Benitez and he seems to be looking for new employment and Newcastle have been linked with him over recent weeks. rumors have been feuled by his agent not ruleing a move away from anfeild in the Summer.
Michael Carrick is also a possible signing. the Man United central midfielder now seems to be moving down the pecking order slowly at Man United with Anderson and flecter being the main 2 midfielders to play with Scholes and with another central midfielder being linked to Old Trafford in the Summer he may consider a move to his hometown club and this will probably bost his England chances with working with Michael Owen.
i will keep you posted
People people people dnt worry Man United have allready got every thing planned firstly: lahm or rafinha comeing for 100 percent man uts scout seen in Bayern Munich game.
also for some reason Ferguson got his eye on fabiano who is very similer to manaucho. hopefully he goes for som1 else.
Italian giants AS Roma are looking at Louis Saha of Man United. –MB–
The one signing Rafa is talking about is none other than Sergio Aguero the two young player are one Argentine and one Brazilian the Brazilian is Diogo and I will get the Argentine next week
News from the lane, first off there have been some personic post's on here esp rob's, so lets sort this out
DAWSON will not go to NUfc, he will wait to see if a bigger club comes in for him eg AVfc or POMPEY.
JENAS, will problem go to either EFC or again POMPEY.
EFC look set to capture ARSHAVIN, KALLSTROM and poss JOHN ELMANDER
there are a host of clubs keeping tabs on WIGAN'S RYAN TAYLOR.
LFC and NUfc will look to fight it out along with the Hammers for D. BENT,
LFC again, will possible tie up the deal for Lennon as well, as THFC are not happy with his (LENNONS) end product, which will leave them (THFC) almost certain to capture BENTLEY as he wants a return to the capital
Afc are becoming increasingly keen about DAVID WHEATER of boro.
THFC, will not consider bidding for KANOUTE, MAKALELE or N'ZOGBIA even though the latter is a talent.
BERBATOV will not be leaving esp for the poultry £22 as posted by one, if he leaves which he will not it would not be to another Premier League side and the cost would be £30+, also not leaving will be JAMIE O'HARA (dream on puddlers) although as posted over the weekend THFC would consider a loan move to GLASGOW RANGERS (well done that lad where did you get the info from it should be hush hush)
also arriving at THFC will be DAVID VILLA and AARON RAMSEY so who ever said that the puddlers will make a deal to take CARDIFF'S youngsters is very well miss informed, RAMSEY will link up with his fellow country men BALE and GUNTER. Another player the foolish puddlers mentioned is FLAMINI (Afc) again LFC no chance
and finally RONALDINHO? the rest of the country can dream on if your thinking of linking your team with the player as he has stated will only ply his trade in the capital. apart that is from MUFC whom he would join, in London Arsenal would not court him leaving CFC and THFC with the former firm fav to land the samba star.
Had to wade through a long list of players posted by a very miss informed child on Sunday, complete drivle, on a correct note juande Ramos will look to purchase a fresh crop of players during the forth comming Summer window
with the pending arrival of David Villa, Ramos will almost certainly add players such as Bentley (who is pineing for London), Aaron ramsey is extremley keen to join up with gunter and Bale at Tottenham, no way of proving the statement but capel has agreed in principal to join Tottenham, a firm bid will be on the table for afellay of PSV Eindhoven, Diego of riverplate and poss Arteta,
Berbatov, Keane and o'hara will not be going anywhere so those who said they would be off to Liverpool. get a life. (the cage. W. h. l)

Rafa Benitez yesterday admitted he has already three players signed, he said to are for the future and one will be regular. The names that are being speculated are RAFINHA (Schalke 04) and two South American kids.
Inside sources tell me that there is interest from two Premier League clubs in St. Mirren's Andy Dorman after a string of impressive games after his January transfer from New England Revolution
Scottish billionaire Sir Tom Hunter is ready to come to the aid of Gretna FC with a rescue package that could see the club leave administration in time for next season

The Hammers To Have A Very Expenisve Summer.
Lukas Podolski (12 million)
Luca Toni (8 million)
Vincent Kompany (5 million)
Danny Haynes (3 million)
Kerlon (8 million)
These will be the main big signing by Curbishley and with the help of Nani they are all likely to sign early in the transfer window, this enables them to get used to the game the Hammers play. Nani will also bring in young trialists from portugal, Spain, America and Italy. He is the real deal and can spot a next Cristiano Ronaldo a mile off.
Carlton Cole (4 million)
John Pantsil (1 million)
Bobby Zamora (2 million)
Richard Wright (1 million)
George McCartney (3.5 million)
Danny Gabbidon (2 million)
Nigel Quashie (free, Mutual Termination)
Luis Boa Morte (3 million)
These deals going out will enable money to go towards the January Transfer Window as For the Summer window Gudmansson has got the money he wants to spend. The future next season is bright for the Hammers
Hammers to have new owners, new staff and a new manager this Summer in a huge change around in the club. Gudmansson is in talks with an American tycoon to take the club of his hands as his buisness it spiralling into debt. The new manager is not decided, but I have heard whispers it could be Roberto Mancini, who will bring most of his Inter Backroom staff. Look out for this happening almost straight away at end of season.
Mancini. yes Inter Manager at the moment. Is in talks about becoming new the Hammers manager at the end of the season, Curbishley will be sacked and Gudmansson is hoping this will be his replacement, he has also had talks with representatives of Slaven Billic, However Mancini at this moment is more likely. Great news for Hammers fans.
Aaron Lennon Tottenham –Liverpool Pre Contract agreement a rumour flying about Liverpool.
To the guy who said that Smith and Strachan went back north of the border for an easier job– wake up they know that that with Rangers and Celtic they will win a trophy most seasons not to mention the UeFa Cup and Champions League, so wheres Everton, Tottenham and Bolton in that competition?
on to rumours expect to see Rangers move for
D. Navarro/C. Berra
S. Davis (perm)
Big change happening at Celtic this Summer
Gordon Strachan is sick and tired of not getting any credit for what he has done
his replacement will be Craig levein (heard from a very reliable source in the Celtic back room staff)
there will be a big clear out in players
Boruc (10 million)
mcgeady (14 million)
brown (2.5 million)
Nakamura (2 million) back to japan
caldwell (2 million)
players coming in will be
samaras (2.5 million)
petrov (1 million) rough spell at Villa park
george boateng (750K)
Marlon Harewood (4 million)
Darren Fletcher (loan)
and the return of the prodigal son liam Miller (750K) he's had a big bust up with Roy Keane and wants to come 2 his only home
Paul Ince has signed a pre–contract agreement with Steve Morgan to become Wolves manager in the Summer regardless of if Mick McCarthy takes his side to the play offs or not. The agreement was made in January when Wolves were struggling in the division. Morgan has also grown tired of Mick McCarthy and there has been a break down in communication especially with how Mick McCarthy has handled £1.5 million signing Freddy Eastwood who is a big favourite of Morgans.
The Hammers to be given £30 million but will sell players so will get between 40–50 million. Nani will only sign for big players who will be:
Ricardo Quaresma £18 million, Florent Malouda 13.5 million and Giovanni Dos Santos £8 million and Luka Modric for £8 million as Slaven Bilic will encourage him to join or Tim Cahill.
Nani will spend the rest of the money on cheaper or young future talent:
Marek Hamsik (5 million), Sergio Aguero (7 million), Giles Barnes (3.5 million), Vincent Kompany (4 million), Scott Carson (6 million (second choice), Steven Taylor (6 million), Nicky Shorey (5 million).
Players like Ferdinand, Ljungberg, Zamora, Cole, Etherington, Gabbidon, Solano, Mullins, Quashie, Davenport, Boa Morte, Bowyer will leave and sadly the Hammers will agree a bid from Arsenal for Noble.
Mark McGhee looks set to be the new Celtic manager in the Summer. A source close to McGhee has informed me that Celtic have made contact with McGhee's agent. The source stated that McGhee is almost certain to leave Motherwell and Celtic would be his first choice. While interest has been shown from Hearts, McGhee believes the move would be too risky. However, he is using the link to Hearts to his advantage in trying to tempt other clubs into making a move.
