I have a good friend who is the cousin of 2 Man'ure players they are also brothers so you know who i'm talking about and he says that Ozil is seriously considering a move to Old Trafford.

Who are you talking about? because the only brothers we have at the club are the da silva twins and the keanes.so unless the da silvas have brought their cousin im not sure who you are talking about.and by the insinuation that we should know what you're talking about im assuming you don't mean the 2 keane lads in the academy :p

Ever hear of Johnny and Corry Evans brainiac. Its really pathetic when u call someone else out for not knowing what they are talkin about when an american knows more about the team than u.(3)(6)

To All Felow Leeds fans


Leeds have been linked with a bunch of names the latest being Chopra, ALAN SMITH, Caulker and john Stead


but plea se i doubt alan smith will return and most fans hate him, personally i don't his leaving of leeds saved us from liquidation and i know we hate man u but at that time only man u could get the best out of him, so who could blame him .


Chopra has threatend to leave, UNLESS cardiff brought in players so they got KOUMAS who i like so maybe he'll stay but if not he'll be about 3.9 mill Leeds have that but i doubt we'll bother

Caulker is good but we signed like 4 defenders already, Connoley, Bessone, collins, bruce etc so he won't get a game much and that's what spurs don't want

john stead i never herd of


so heres looking at you Editor {editor's note – like I said, I doubt the info I was given was any more than false info to give the fans hope, then Bates can moan about the greed of modern players and look like he was thinking of the club. But I am beginning the think Leeds signed Paynter to be Beckford's replacement and have not really bidded for another striker at all. Hopefully I am wrong, the transfer window needs some big movement soon or it will be a complete damp squib!}(3)(3)

Celtic are ready to launch a 45 million pound bid to sign arsenals djourou after lennon was impressed by his emirates cup preformance.
the board are also set to keep money aside incase a deal for robbie keane becomes possible but its still seen as unlikely..keane coming in would mean an immediate departure for samaras.
lennon is also lining up a 3 million pound bid for west ham winger junior stanislas, who avram grant sees as surplus to requiremants and lennon feels the youngster would be a perfect replacement fo the out going aiden mcgeady

on the otherside of glasgow, rangers are set to lose out on jelavic beacues rapid feel they need him for their europeasn qualifiers but will settle for welcome at 500k, smith though is helpless to stop the departure of steve davis who mark hughes has decided he wants steve davis as his first signing after pulling the plug on a move for steve sidwell. walter will spend 12 million to buy a central midfield replacement and chris brunt from west brom for 2 million, the bank will pocket the rest(7)(8)

 

 04 Aug 2010 23:31:49

 04 Aug 2010 23:36:33
Said just after the season finished my very reliable source at Arsenal informed me Wenger had no intention of bringing in a new keeper and the only signinings, which my source was spot on is and will be Chamak and one CB and he hasn't changed his mind. unfortunatly he is convinced what we have is good enough and he belived once Almunia and Fabianski regain their confidence they'll come good. Not what we wanted to hear. {editor's note – if Wenger had no intention of bringing in a keeper, why did he make firm bids for both Reina and Schwarzer? That doesn't sound like a man who has no intention of signing a keeper!}(5)(4)

a surprise link is with mathieu flamini (ed anything in this rumour)

degan looks to be goin to stuttgart {editor's note – personally I would prefer Flamini to Poulsen, but I don't think there is anything in the rumour at all.}(10)(3)

 

 04 Aug 2010 22:58:42
Just to clear up any further confusions about whether Alan (Smith) played in the Deportivo match for Newcastle..

This was taken from the Newcastle official website


NUFC: Steve Harper (Tim Krul 46), Ryan Taylor, Jose Enrique, James Perch (James Tavernier 52), Fabricio Coloccini, Wayne Routledge, Danny Guthrie (Kevin Nolan 46), Joey Barton, Xisco (Jonas Gutierrez 46), Andy Carroll, Leon Best (Peter Lovenkrands 73).
Subs not used: Shane Ferguson, Alan Smith.(10)(3)

 

 04 Aug 2010 22:41:24
Shimizu s pulse have upped their asking price for shinji okazaki to over 3 million pounds, Plymouth were willing to pay 750k, Argyle had kept the number 9 shirt open in the hope of signing the japanese up and coming star, at the current asking price Argyle have no chance whatsoever. Onismor bhasera won't leave for less than 1 million pounds, Reda johnson however could leave relatively cheaply as Argyle are overloaded at centre back. Reid knows whats needed as does every Argyle fan, a creative midfielder plus a right back. My bets based on speculation would be Exeters Ryan Harley, and a young premiership youngster on loan.(6)(2)

 

 04 Aug 2010 22:42:46
Re Alan Smith going nowhere on the basis of the Rangers article, that was published yesterday and the interview was conducted a few days ago so it is possible things have changed in that time..never say never
I remember when he said he was going to stay at Scumchester oops sorry I mean Man U and he was featured on their advertising boards outside the ground then a few days before the season kicked off he went off to Newcastle.
The truth is often stranger than fiction!(5)(10)

Due to their embarssing CL exit celtic have dropped their intrest in bellamy and keane and have turned their attention to st johnstone pair jody morris and michael duberry, if they fail to get them then they will try and sign david robertson from dundee utd and david obua of hearts.(19)(11)

To whoever was wondering:
Has Evra gone to play for utd in ireland 2nite? watched countdown 2 kick off on mutv earlier only player out ov world cup players saf never mentioned /madrid bound ?

The Answer is NO SAF gave him more time off because he played more games then any other player last season and then went to the world cup so he's only returned to training yesterday.

THAT IS CORRECT, EVRA PLAYED MORE GAMES THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE UNITED SQUAD LAST SEASON PLUS HE WANTED TO GIVE HIM EXTRA TIME WITH HIS FAMILY AFTER THE FRANCE FIASCO, HE STARTED TRAINING TODAY AND MAY PLAY A PART ON SUNDAY AGAINST CHELSEA. I LISTENED TO AN INTERVIEW OF HIM ON MUTV YESTERDAY AND HE IS A PLAYER WHO LOVES BEING AT UNITED, THE WAY HE TALKS HE IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT THE CLUB, AND I AM A VERY NON BIAS PERSON. HE WILL BE AT UNITED UNTIL HE RETIRES, UNLESS FERGIE MOVES HIM ON EARLIER.(6)(3)

Hi its the bristol city fan that told the world about david james

i can confirm that there has been contact between bristol city and manchester united concerning a forward

heavy rumours that it is michael owen,
i am not sure but i do know some of city's representatives
will be at the game tonight between ireland xi and manchester united, but why?
:D

Utter rubbish. As a Bristol City supporter I'd just like to say that there is a very small number of BCFC supporters putting this crap around the internet it's even reached some papers. It may be a laugh but it aint doing us serious supporters any favours. Christ it makes us look like Leeds supporters.(8)(9)

I just thought I would post some rumours I have heard or read:

AC Milan have stated their interest in Tottenham midfielder Giovani dos Santos and are willing to offer KlaasJan Huntelaar a in a swap deal.
Chelsea are set to make a £40 mil move for Real Madrid's Kaka. Also Chelsea are looking at Tottenham winger Luka Modric.
Yoann Gourcouf is wanted by Manchester City.
I personnally do not believe the following but thought I would post it anyway: Ruud van Nistlerooy to Liverpool. What are your thoughts ED? {editor's note – I have been a bit out of touch the last few days, but I would have expected someone I know at Liverpool to have got in touch with me if RVN was going to be signing. So I doubt it too.}(4)(14)

For the record, Smudger (Alan Smith) was an unused substitute in the Deportivo game so it is possible he may have arranged to fly straight back very late to sort out something with Leeds but then hang on am I seeing pigs flying around? Hmmmmm let's see what tomorrow brings eh!(6)(5)

 

 04 Aug 2010 22:17:37
Alan Smith is staying at Newcastle! Hes jst been on the rangers website saying hes looking forward to playin in the premiership again this season! HES GOING NOWER!(13)(5)

 

 04 Aug 2010 22:19:18
As I said last week it's all going to get a bit messy in paradise. Lennon knows he needs at least another 4 first team starters. As he said in the press today the quality of these signings hinge on the mcgeady transfer fee. But it's looking increasingly like he's going to stay. He won't go to Russia and villa have cooled there interest. If mon had indicated a willingness to take him he wouldn't be in Russia.(9)(2)

 

 04 Aug 2010 22:20:13
News flash ! Jelavic will arrive in Glasgow on Friday morning to complete his move to Rangers. Welcome and Jelavic wil be paraded infront of the fans at halftime during the friendly with Newcastle.expect another possible signing to be in the stand also watching the game..only 1 Man utd kid to come on a seasons loan, , and hes a winger not a striker.due to septicks failure once again to reach the elite champions league, xtra funds will be made available to walter, but he may wait till january to see if he needs to strengthen more.eg injuries etc.iv heard of being outa europe before Christmas, , but before the 5th of August.ha ha ha, , HELP HELP.(16)(11)

 04 Aug 2010 22:01:25
Need to clear up a few things because ther is a lot of nonsense being posted on here at the moment. Man Utd have got transfer funds available and sufficient funds too. Mesut Ozils transfer is just a matter of days away, a deal has been agreed in principle and Ozil is close to agreeing personal terms. Stephen Defour is being lined up for january but could join in this window if a rival club makes a serious offer, and for the record that won't be Liverpool. Stephen Defour is an emerging talent and won't want to join a mid table premiership side like them. Sources of mine have also indicated that Sir Alex Ferguson is considering a move for Jack Wilshere who he sees as being one of the best young players in europe. A new goalkeeper will be purchased next summer with Manuel Neuer the number 1 target. Also watch the muppets at wastelands nosedive this season.(23)(16)

In reply to the guy replying here


04 Aug 2010 19:02:16
To the guy who said that Ozil was valued at "between 12 and 16 million" and that Benzema was a "30 million pound striker"
Benzema 30 milion?? Maybe two years ago, not now. He is a benchwarmer at Madrid n Mourinho would happily take 15 million for him. funny about Ozil isn't it, he's worth 12 million when Werder rejected a 20 million bid for him from Real Madrid, which is his preferred destination.Absolute rubbish on the Ozil comment. madrids attacking targets were canales (who was tied up before season end) di maria and a possible move for villa or silva. Mourinho had even stated areas of improvement and where he would need to buy after the di maria deal was done and only highlighted the defense. They were priced out of silva and villa and were still annoyed at valencia for the last minute changes to the deal which saw the villa deal last year fall through. with di maria the no1 target they have their man and are happy.

The reason Ozil is now coming out to say england, chelsea and man u prefered is madrid not interested, barca 100% commited to trying to get cesc and only other teams with ucl and title challenging sides are the 2 mentioned. bremen never in a million years would of rejected 20m for a player with 1 year left as any team wouldn't either. it would make no business sense at all and their board should be sacked if they have.

I think they set a price that has never been met though i doubt utd have tabled a bid. price likely to be 1013m and with fergies stubbornness he will have an idea and won't differ from that if it falls short then he simply won't come. doubt chelsea will move for him as they seem happy to have ramires and benayoun to replace their outgoings which only leaves utd.

I would like him at utd and think his movement with rooney and hernandez(who looks a real good striker) would run most teams ragged. Also an added bonus would be that with all this mobility and movement berba will be found out and stick out even more as the weak link in a fast free flowing attacking team and fergie will get rid. Possibly(12)(6)

Ed, Any news of CB and GK at arsenal??
GlasgowGunner {editor's note – Schwarzer has been priced out of a move as Hughes wants to keep him, I have no idea if Wenger will look elsewhere or not. As for a cb I still expect one from the Bundesliga to join soon, I thought it was either Tasci or Subotic, though I am beginning to wonder with all these stories about Spahic(sp?).}(9)(5)

 

 04 Aug 2010 21:37:26
Ed, do you know if LFC are interested in Darren Bent?
The lad is basically a guarantee of 20 goals plus per season, simple as.
To score nearly as many goals as Rooney, against exactly the same premiership defenders, and with service from lowerrated midfielders.. And he's English, so fits with the new rules.
Are any clubs rumoured to be chasing him? {editor's note – he does not want to leave Sunderland and they don't want or need to sell him.}(9)(6)

Just to add to the Alan Smith rumour machine, I am told that his wish of playing for the Rangers may come to pass. The additional 2.5 million revenue from Celtics share of broadcasting will more than settle wages and he is keen to make an impact for one of his two loves. Sorry Leeds pals but he may choose Champions League Yorkie Lad(15)(16)

Arsenal News

Arsene Wenger will sign a goalkeeper, who will be Mark Schwarzer for £3.5m. He will also sign just 1 centre back. He will try and bring in Per Mertesacker as a first choice CB, but if not then it will be Emir Spahic, but he would be a back up to Vermaelen being left footed, with Djourou back up to Koscielny.

He will not sign a midfielder, so no Ozil, or Melo. He has already said that this is because he has been impressed with Wilshere and Frimmpong in preseason.(12)(8)

 

 04 Aug 2010 21:57:01
I have a good friend who is the cousin of 2 Man'ure players they are also brothers so you know who i'm talking about and he says that Ozil is seriously considering a move to Old Trafford.

Who are you talking about? because the only brothers we have at the club are the da silva twins and the keanes..so unless the da silvas have brought their cousin im not sure who you are talking about..and by the insinuation that we should know what you're talking about im assuming you don't mean the 2 keane lads in the academy :p(7)(7)

To all Man'ure fans

This is my 1st rumour so i'll tell you what i heard!

I have a good friend who is the cousin of 2 Man'ure players they are also brothers so you know who i'm talking about and he says that Ozil is seriously considering a move to Old Trafford. The reason being is that Bayern (his 1st choice) are not willing to pay what Werder Bremen want for him and apparently he's asking for to much wage's if Bayern agree a fee. Take what you want from this like i said it's just a rumour.

I really hope it is a rumour as he is a quality player and as you can see i support the greatest team in the history of English Football.

sources have told me hes interested but this is over played as ha has only shown an interest. BUT if he is to buy it my sources have firmly said BAD TIMES AHEAD FOR LFC. if the chinnese buisness man buys LFC then it will transformate liverpool again.

Fulop to be officially unveiled on Friday for 850k, will be in matchday squad for Middlesborough
Henri Lansbury on season long loan from Arsenal

Jon Stead to Leeds for 300k rising to 500k on appearances etc.(10)(21)

 

 04 Aug 2010 20:41:16
With respect to all those rumours suggesting that Joe Hart is going out on loan to Arsenal, Chelsea etc etc. Come on..would you the manager of Man City let your highly rated first/second choice keeper go to one of your main premiership rivals. If he goes out on loan ( i don't think so) it will be to a team not competing at the top end. He is not going out on loan or being sold otherwise he would still be at Birmingham. Love to see him at Arsenal but it ain't gonna happen!(16)(8)

I think fergie is spot on with Cleverley. Newcastle took Guiseppe Rossi on loan and promised him games and hardly gave him a snaiff and prefered players like Ameobi!! Lets look at how there careers have developed and see what a mistake that was!! Glenn Roeder was a tool and because of him I doubt fergie will let Newcastle have any youngsters on loan.


You are wrong Rossi came in because Ameobi needed an op, with owen already injured for the season.

Loads of Alan Smith rumours and I can confirm he was spotted filling up his BMW X3 at a petrol station in Rothwell (town near Leeds) at 8am (by a colleague at work).

I think Smith is from Rothwell so he may have been visiting family or friends quite a coincidence though with the rumours of his return hotting up.

lol smiths family all live in rothwell, i am from there idiots.
He's here every weekend(14)(10)

 

 04 Aug 2010 20:22:31
Yes Alan Smith is from Rothwell, his parents still live in the area and his Dad still has a season ticket at Leeds United. He also has family connections in the Harrogate and Wetherby area. He does own a BMW X5.
The plot thickens..

To whoever edits the rumours could u let Leeds fans into the secret about the striker who is coming I don't believe alot of the players mentioned but I've a feeling u know his identity
Please mention his club if u know and Alan Smith ain't coming so let's forget him once and 4 all {editor's note – I honestly don't have a name, I was told there would be one coming when I questioned someone connected with the club about whether or not Paynter was Beckford's replacement. Like I said though, I feel it was a case of trying to keep the fans onside by feeding false info out. I have a feeling that there will be talk of not being able to agree wages or fees and Bates claiming other people were being greedy and that is why no other striker will join except for a possible loan striker.}(9)(5)

Do you have any idea as to what is going on with the liverpool takover.

Am confused, shouldn't bar cap be dealing with these people who are branding there name about.

Why r they makings things public about dealing directly with owners when broughton and barcap are supposedly sorting the sale process.

Am Very Confuse any ideas ED {editor's note – I don't believe any of the names given out publicly are any more than guesswork. Journalists know that Liverpool have notified the FA about a imminent takeover and they are now running round making guesses about who it will be because they can't just sit quiet and say nothing.}(13)(4)

Wheres your source mate? I'm not sure if that would be a good move if it actually happens, we already lost a Central Defender. Unless, of course, we sign one of the defenders we have been looking at. But I think I'd rather stick with Webster.

Also, to the guy who said Shawcross to Liverpool wouldn't happen because Man Utd have first option., so what?? Doesn't mean that Man U will sign him does it??(8)(13)

Glasgow Celtic Outs:

There is no indication that Hinkel will move from Celtic as there's simply been no interest or offers from any other Club. Hinkel recently said "If no one is interested then I will stay".

Loovens will be a first team regular at CB after the departure of Caldwell, McManus, and Caddis. The only way Celtic could possibly sell Loovens is if they first sign a replacement. There has been no indication that Loovens will be sold by Celtic at this point and no other Club has shown strong interest in the Player.

McGeady's £9.5m move to Russia is Celtic's strongest chance of making further transfers. Neil Lennon has said Himself that 'future transfers hinge on the sale of McGeady'. However if McGeady decides not to go to Russia then a quick move to Villa isn't certain as Man City, as yet, haven't signed James Milner and Martin O'Neill has refused to meet Celtic's asking price for McGeady.

Samaras has been valued at 2m by Celtic and Atletico Madrid, Palermo and Hercules have been linked with the Player. The signing of Daryl Murphy makes the exit of Samaras more likely.

Sheridan will move to CSKA Sofia having agreed to a transfer. The transfer fee will be minimal (500k max).

Celtic Ins:

A Goalkeeper is needed after the departure of Boruc. Zaluska can be the first choice keeper but another keeper as competition and backup is wanted. This is supported by the fact that Celtic showed strong interest in signing David James.

At least one other defender is needed to strengthen the defence which is still looking weak.

As for signing Keane or Bellamy forget it, lol. There's no way either are going to join Celtic. Bellamy is earning 90k a week wages and is fond of a large wage packet. Bellamy once said: "When was the last time Celtic went to the wages that I am earning..I know the chief executive Peter Lawwell very well. But if we are all being realistic, and living in the real world, it's never going to happen."(11)(11)

Ref , beckfords replacement at elland road, i agree with a previous post that billy paynter probably is the replacement ! And as the ed says leeds are not very forth coming when it comes to transfer talk. As for all these people linking alan smith , heskey , carlos vela and other daft names, you need to realize although we are potentialy a huge club, as it stands we are a newly promoted championship team. Time to get real and get your heads out of the clouds. In my opinion we will probably sign a young premiership striker on loan to cover snoddy . If were lucky bates may spend a bit of cash firming up the midfield/defence as there are the problem areas ! Most likely signings , in my opinion , jay simpson loan. That caulker lad from spurs. Maybe corry evans on loan from man utd. Any one else got any realistic leeds rumours?(7)(6)

right listen guys only teams interested in him are everton and rangers, cetic are not even looking at him, so stop with the crap rangers fans, use know who use are lmao, how sad are use make rumours up to make it out as we after him?? and don't think you will get him, after all rapid viena put price tag of 4million for him, and rangers have only tabled 1.5 million plus 500,000 add ons which well below there valuation.. and im sure everton have much more funds than the rangers backroom to play with and can't see rangers paying 4million as they need 3 players and not going to blow there budget on one player, so why doesn't rangers fan take there heads out of the sand and keep it real for a change, also very funny all those rumours yesterday, rangers fans saying not playing in game and will be rangers player, when board at viena are meeting tommorow to look over the offer and other offers at there meeting? so instead of spowting rubbish try get some facts and at least make your rumour believable instead of just making crap up lmao sad rangers fans as usual?(6)(17)

To Fox

Huntlaar spoke to Prem clubs before his agent came out and said that he would not be moving. I don't generally speculate on motives, however I think that if you speak to that many clubs you are playing one off against another to get yourself a better deal, including your current employers.

With regard to Arteta, he already has a long deal, Everton have offered more to entice him to stay. However if the family problems are swaying his decision he will probably move to Spain regardless. Mikel Arteta has assured Everton that they will be his only EPL club.

Pienaar has had an offer on the table since last season. There have been enquiries from Liverpool, in January, and from City, Spurs and Chelsea all in May, but there have been no actual bids.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck to Gary Ablett(30)(15)

As usual Martin O'neill will leave it late to bring players to Villa Park,
First in should be ex Lyon defensive midfielder Mahamadou Diarra who will come in cheap as he's now surplus to requirements at Madrid, next to join the claret and blue is Axel Witsel, O'neill has had him watched closely for the last 2 seasons and is finally set to make his move, last in is Peter Crouch who will resign with Reo coker going the other way as part of the deal.

The ongoing Milner saga is still set to carry on with Ireland being wanted as part of the deal and possibly Jo (unless Blackburn get in there first)

Sorry to dissapoint you but man utd won't sign nobody. :(( .my source is the following
SAF said he's happy with the squad and on the utd website there is a thing called "pick your XI".and they usually put that thing after we buy players..

And during May he said he wanted to bring in one or two new players, SAF is hardly going to come out and say who his after, and he never tells the whole truth to the press cos truth is we look at so many players every year, but with the World Cup and the new 25man squad rule everyone trying to work out the kinks in there teams, so means less transfer then normal.

SAF wants a playmaker, its no secret that we lacked a spark and creativity in the middle last season, you don't need to even be "In the Know" to know all this. SAF been banging on about value, and i get the feeling that any targets he had lined up for CAM slot were either staying with there club or didn't in SAF eyes represent value, and he didn't want to get into a bidding war with likes of City & Real. M.

If you look at the time line SAF said he was happy with his squad (and his not that wrong btw, it only need a few tweaks) Just not long before he found out that Ozil was available and only had a year to run on his contract, and for round about 12Million the same money we recouped by selling both Foster and Tosic this summer, it won't be a problem money wise getting him.

I get the feeling that SAF didn't believe he could get this lad and he would head off to Spain (he may still you never know), but out of the 4 clubs (Barca, Chelsea, Real & Man Utd) Ozil has said he wouldn't mind playing for, all the clubs (apart from United) have got something blocking them, for this summer at least.

Real.M Have Kaka there, and they just brought Canales as well and i think VDV only at start of July said he would be staying at Real.M for another year, which is smart as Kaka has injury problems, Canales is unproven as of now at Real.M and VDV played very well last season, good back up to have, so if anything happens be next summer.

Barca Are looking at a CDM to replace Yaya Toure atm, and they will forever go for Cesc regardless if Ozil there or not, i know Ozil would love to play for them but i doubt even Ozil would like being benched most weeks, if a move appears for him it won't be this year, and there's nothing stopping him for leaving to go there when his gained that experience and matured a few years from now and Xavi retired and Iniesta got a bit older.

Chelsea Are after other targets, not saying they couldn't go after him, but think Carlo Ancelotti has Moluda for LW spot and Lampard for CAM. And I'm not sure Chelsea have every approached Either Bremen or Ozil agents or Ozil himself about a move, sure someone ITK would know for sure though.

Bayern Already have Muller, plays same role as Ozil and is even younger then he is.

Arsenal CAM isn't an area that needs looking into, even if Cesc goes, i get feeling Wenger will put Nasri into Cesc role like he did for last 6 weeks of season.

City No UCL, which he wants

Spurs He wants to compete for the major honours like Champs league and League Title, which isn't being disrespectful to Spurs fans as takes time to get to that level of being a top 4 team every year and challenge for those honours.

Then there's us/man Utd, it doesn't take a genius to work out we need a forward thinking playmaker, Think we followed Ozil since at least 2007, we tried buying him before, SAF made a mistake last year when he let Inter buy Sneijder for just 13.5Million and look how that turned out, guys like Ozil, with that much talent, & his young age don't come around every year, and SAF will now this.

If anyone wants to know what's going on then I will be this month, Bremen have a Champions League play off 1st leg match on either the 17/18th of August, if Ozil plays in it he will be cup tied in Champs League, and that mean he leave next summer on a free, if he doesn't play for whatever reason, he will be off before Sept comes around and if that's case imo he will be moving in last week of August.

I'm sure Bremen would love to keep Ozil, but they have to be realistic and say if they do they can't gather any money from him, and if they do lose him, it would have to be now so they can find a replacement as soon as possible.

I'm not saying we will sign him but my suggestion is to wait and see, we travel back from Ireland to England tomorrow i think and Bremen play a UCL play off on either the 17/18th of August (depending on how the draw goes) So imho if a deal is done it would be from 5th to the 16th or 17th of August.

If anyone likes to disagree with anything I've said or add to it then feel free, but my gut feeling is SAF will want to bring in at least 1 big summer signing and out of all the names and most logical of choices, Mesut Ozil seems the best option.(29)(36)

Anyway any proper United rumours this Ozil one is going on for too long and I feel we won't buy anyone as we should and would have got players in by now.(11)(12)

It says on the Reading website that he's been told to find a new club, never really lived up to his potential but could probably cut it in the Championship. Likely to happen IMO.

As a West Ham fan and supporter's club member I am at a loss for words with our owners and the new signing. Posting on your own club's website that a great young player who performed well at the last World Cup was on his way, obviously had all hammers fans eating out of the palm of their hands with excitement and anticipation. Granted this player wouldn't be French or Italian but rumours of Asamoah Gyan, Thomas Mueller, Robinho (on loan) and Kevin Prince Boateng all surfaced. Granted how we could afford these players was at the back of every West Ham fan's mind, but the chairmen's words had all fans at fever pitch. I'm not for one minute going to say that Winston Reid isn't a talent, but would any other Premiership side give him such a big build up?

I will happily support Reid as a player at my club (his new club) and not judge him until I've seen him play. However, such misleading quotes (albeit true ones) should not be bounded about like exciting news giving fans false optimism.

Therefore if anyone has any news about any other new West Ham signings that may cheer us poor Hammers up, then I am well up for hearing them! And not too many false piss takes please!

In response to the individual who wrote:

"Hinkel has been one of our most consistent players over teh last few years. He assists more goals than most of our midfielders from right back!! 2.5 million for him is more than possible maybe clubs will try for less because it's the last year of his contract as it's definately nothing to do with ability."

If proof was ever needed that Aiden McGeady has no end product this is it. Hinkel the right back "assists more goals than most of our midfielders". But, if Hinkel is such a creative Footballer then why on Earth has He been dropped from the first team all together. Also, 10m is more than possible for Bougherra but it's not very likely is it. 2.5m for Hinkel isn't very likely either especially as there's been no interest or offers from other Clubs. To quote the Player Himself ""I want to stay here..if noone is interested then I will stay" so it looks as if He's staying.

You also wrote:

"Loovens one of our best defenders!! ha what a joke. The guys not strong, poor tackler, poor heading and lacks concentration im surprised he's a footballer."

I said Loovens was one of Celtic's best defenders yes, but I never said He was any good. In fact, other than "poor heading" I agree with Your thoughts of Him as a Footballer. Celtic have been leaking Goals for a long time and the idea that someone will start offering millions for both Loovens and Hinkel is a joke.

As I said before, future transfer hinge on the sale of McGeady and Lennon has even suggested that. To quote one report: "Celtic manager Neil Lennon says his spending plans will be curtailed if winger Aiden McGeady decides not to sign for Spartak Moscow".(8)(13)

I think fergie is spot on with Cleverley. Newcastle took Guiseppe Rossi on loan and promised him games and hardly gave him a snaiff and prefered players like Ameobi!! Lets look at how there careers have developed and see what a mistake that was!! Glenn Roeder was a tool and because of him I doubt fergie will let Newcastle have any youngsters on loan.

Sorry to dissapoint you but man utd won't sign nobody. :(( .my source is the following
SAF said he's happy with the squad and on the utd website there is a thing called "pick your XI".and they usually put that thing after we buy players.

Thats odd because in 2008 we all knew berbatov would be signing eventually and a similar poll was on the website before the season startedthen berba signed on the last day of the window..AFTER the season had started. So your logic is flawed my friend. Even Mike Phelan has said there may be 1 more signing but if it doesn't happen SAF is happy with the squad. Of course he is gonna say hes happy with it because if he says we need one more player and the signing doesn't come off then he leaves the fans thinking the squad is short and very unhappy.(41)(14)

"The most important thing is that so far the negotiations go as planned and that the transfer could be completed soon, " Spahic told SportSport.ba.

"Arsenal is a great club, I'm an admirer of Arsene Wenger and I hope that Montpellier will cooperate."

Spahic, the Bosnia and Herzegovina captain, is under contract with Montpellier until 2014

The German international looks set to leave the Bundesliga side this summer as his employers look to avoid losing the 21 year old next summer for nothing when his contract runs out. The likes of Anderson and even Dimitar Berbatov could be sacrificed as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to capture the talented starlet.

To HAIL HAIL regarding Jelavic to celtic..

His interview with an Austrian journalist after last nights game as follows ..

He said: " I am very happy tonight becuase i scored two goals to help Rapid eliminate Zagora. However, at the same time I am ready to take on a new challenge.
" I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the move to Rangers materialises, I have always dreamed of playing in Britain and this is my big chance.
" I hope Rapid will grant me this favour in return for my goals and endless fight for the club."

CELTIC HAVE JUST SIGNED 2 STRIKERS , PLUS YOUR " DEFO " GETTING BELLAMY OR KEANE. NOW YOUR SIGNING JELAVIC LOL . Plus the 6 strikers you already have on the books.

Rangers will CONFIRM the signing of Nikica Jelavic on either Thursday night or Friday morning , and when it DOES happens , i think you should post an apology , and if it happens with Keane or Bellend , il do the same

If we apply logic and reasoning to all the Arsenal rumours as its easy to do .( we have had the same manager now for 14 years so the surprise big budget signing is rare!) we can understand what would or would not be true out of all these wild rumours.
The idea that Arsenal are even remotely interested in Ozil ( or trying to compete with Chelsea and MU for him ) is idiotic . midfielders they are not short of.
Melo .. why? Wenger and Hillwood have both said Fabregas not for sale, its no secret Fabregas wants to end up at Barca which in the future will happen, but for now the midfield has Song ( a much improved player last season and one that AW has brought through) Diaby is of questionable talent but no sign of him moving anywhere then along with Fabregas, Walcott/Rosicky/Denilson/Wilshere/Ramsey/Nasri etc all have deals in place squad numbers on their backs and no sign of them going anywhere.
Wenger when he speaks of transfers is usually straightforward , he was clear that he was in the market for 1 or 2 CB's and a GK ..
Arsenal made an offer to Fulham (we know this as Fulham told everyone ) for Schwarzer .. he is 37 and never played Champs league . of course he wants to go !
If that fails and Mark Hughes keeps him there are one or 2 options like Marchetti , again there is a direct quote from his club president "Federico has expressed a desire to leave, " Cagliari president Massimo Cellino said last week. "The only club pushing for his signature is Arsenal and we will do everything to make him happy." so not much mystery there ..
AW has signed a CB and there is room for 1 more . Gallas re signing maybe . but now we have a quote from Spahic ""The most important thing is that so far the negotiations go as planned and that the transfer could be completed soon, " so that would solve that mystery of who they want to sign for that position .
Rarely does AW move away from his policy of signing young players and building a team , the last surprises we have had were Campbell spell back last season and Flamini not signing a contract and leaving ..
So as much as we Arsenal fans would enjoy the hype of a big name signing every season our team has not been run like that for some time and the results have been good in the long run :)(33)(16)

 

 04 Aug 2010 15:06:45

Can I just say ED this is a great site I read it everyday.

Anyway, some decent news:

Mesut Ozil will not be going to Man U, he stated himself he will be staying at his current club and if he moves his preffered destination is Spain.

Sergio 'Kun' Aguero will go to neither Chelsea nor Liverpool. Chelsea are not looking to buy anyone and Liverpool don't have the money.

The takeover at Liverpool looks very likely to happen but sadly for LFC fans not before the transfer window closes. Kenny Huang or a group of Canadian and Arab business men look top of the list.

West Ham fans are constantly talking about buying very good players: Alexis Sanchez and Loic Remy. Firstly where is the money coming from and secondly why would they go to West Ham?

Thanks, ED any thoughts on the likely person to fill the space at left back? {editor's note – for which club?}(15)(40)

To the guy that said this

Lastly, to the Person who said Hinkel, Loovens and Samaras will leave Celtic for Millions. Hinkel is out of the picture at Celtic because of His poor form. He was also interviewed by a Newspaper and said that He will stay and finish the last year of His contract because there has been no interest from other Clubs. Loovens is probably Celtics best Center half at the moment and there's been no mention of Him being sold. Add to the fact that the Celtic defence has been leaking Goals for a LONG time so why would anyone be interested in throwing millions of pounds Celtic's way for those two.

Hinkel has been one of our most consistent players over teh last few years. He assists more goals than most of our midfielders from right back!!

2.5 million for him is more than possible maybe clubs will try for less because it's the last year of his contract as it's definately nothing to do with ability.

Also Loovens one of our best defenders!! ha what a joke. The guys not strong, poor tackler, poor heading and lacks concentration im surprised he's a footballer.(20)(13)

Word on the street in Manchester is that United are, and i quote, 'VERY, VERY' close to signing Mesut Ozil.

As is the one about liverpool, they will not sign shawcross as he is happy at stoke and United have first option on him as they do most young players that they sell. Also Loic Remy to liverpool is a myth. That won't happen.(16)(22)

I do not think we will see any more transfers at stamford bridge especially with the new squad rule for 8 homegrown players. It would be difficult not to include a regular first team player with a new signing especially with the big names at chelsea. I think this will be the case with a lot of the big clubs in the premier league. There is still under a month to go a lot of business can still happen.(27)(6)

Sunderland will bring in joe hart on loan. Also looking to bring in a forward. Hopefully it will be a big name such as Keane, santa cruz or bellamy.

Man utd unlikely to get anyone else in. No more big money getting paid out after chelsea sign ramires.(20)(33)

Heard an interesting rumour with regards to the Milner to Man City deal. When discussions were first started O'Neill wanted 10 million plus Ireland and Adam Johnson (who was O'Neill principal target in January) or 30 million cash. Man City were anxious a) not to lose Johnson and b) did not want to spend the full 30 million and as such offered Ireland plus cash or Ireland, SWP and cash, but the dispute is ongoing as to how much Ireland is worth which determines how much cash is being paid. Man city are getting impatient and as such seem acquiesce (albeit reluctantly) to the 10 million plus Ireland and Adam Johnson as both players are unsettled by the amount of competition at City now. As such O'Neill will not follow up with McGeady who may well stay at Celtic for another year.

On another note I understand that Donovan will be joining Everton for 9.5 million before the end of the transfer window and that Utaka and Jo (on loan) will join Blackburn Rovers.(37)(22)

Today I heard the most ridiculous rumour of all time. ASTON VILLA are to sign Gary Neville!! Where it came form I don't know.

I have been told by various sources that mesut ozil is close to signing for man utd after a deal has been agreed between bremen and utd.

All that needs to be done is ozil to agree personal terms and have a medical and sign on the dotted line.
Old trafford is ozil preffered destination so expect him to be a utd player before the community shield, although don't expect him to play a part in it.(27)(31)

As predicted on saturday the James Milner deal is now nearing completion. The figure has been agreed at £27million, with £19million cash and Stephen Ireland. That way both clubs appear to have won the battle over price, with the debate of Ireland's value being the decider. This will be completed no later than Monday 9th August
Aiden McGeady is still very much Villa's number 1 target and Villa and City are now trying to push the deal through so Villa can get McGeady, who will stall on the Moscow deal.
Do not be surprised if no other deals follow, I'm led to believe that Martin O'Neill is on thin ice and could be out by christmas, meaning the new manager having funds in January. MON apparant bad attitude towards the Villa fans, still overrunning from last season is not going down to well with Randy Lerner and this is why funds are not being released. Come on ED, you must of heard this? {editor's note – I have said already that I believe MON is on his way out. Lerner is not happy with him in the slightest and is just waiting for an excuse to sack him I was told. We will know for sure as soon as Villa have a bad run I guess.}(12)(19)

NUFC rumours:

Chopra or Vassell (£4m or free) to come in.

Hatem Ben Arfa unlikely, but contact has been confirmed, Ashley could sanction the signing if Hughton can persuade him. If he does sign, somewhere in the region of 8/9million with add ons.

Van AAholt (spelling) (free) or J Lloyd Samuel (£1.5£2m) to come in as cover for Enrique.

I don't see Cleverly coming in on loan as we have enough midfielders, expect maybe another defender and/or a young striker on loan for three months.

And also.. Ed, what's your take on all the Liverpool madness?

why do people make these things up.

ollie has called into david moyes several times, and the only reason pool have not and will prob not get seamus back on loan is because he will be in evertons first 16 and has been in impressive form for them in there preseason in oz.

he has stated how much he loved blackpool, plus prem football or championship football?

They could join the likes of Gary & Phil, Rafael & Fabio, Jonny & Cory Evans and Will & Michael Keane.

Bellamy latest. He is for sale not for loan. Cut price fee of 4.5 million to either Fulham where he will rejoin Mark Hughes or Spurs who are keen on the player.

Keane latest he is for sale not loan. Villa will pay 7 million only awaiting the sale of Milner. They will also go to 7 million for Mc Geady and Birmingham will also bid at about that price.

Rangers info.

A deal has been struck to take two Man Utd young players on loan. Welcome trial has gone very well and he will be signing subject to medical and work permit. Jelavic signing will be ratified on Thursday night in Vienna at a Board meeting.

Latest on the Manchester United transfer rumours:

Ozil (85% chance) About to come to England as part of the Fulham v Werder friendly match later in the week. During this period, Ozil's representative will be taking to Manchester United. Whether a deal can be agreed is another issue, but I'm sure it will be an initial £12m, with all sorts of bonuses (as is most of United's transfers recently due to the financial situation).

Defour (50%) No doubt this is a player that SAF likes and wants, however it's a carbon copy of the Rooney transfer. SAF will only bid now if another club decides to bid, otherwise he'll monitor Defour this season with a likelihood of a bid attempt next Summer.

Benzema (0%) There was significant interest in Benzema prior to the World Cup, especially with Jose's arrival at Real Madrid, SAF was confident a deal could be struck. However the cooling off on Benzema happened when SAF realised just how good Javier Hernandez actually is (previously went off Jim Lawlers report/assessment), and is confident that in Hernandez, we have a wonderful talent that needs to be merged into the team now.

Paulo Henrique Ganso (10%) Was the main interest for SAF, especially when he thought Ozil would be likely heading to Spain. But since Ozil came out the media and confirmed that he would be very interested in England, SAF's interest in Ganso has deteriated.

Firstly Stephen Ireland is staying at Eastlands 100%, only yesterday did he commit his future to the club saying he wants to fight for his place, expect a move in January if he cannot cement a role in the first team squad.

One player on his way for sure is Roque Santa Cruz, personally i think he will move abroad, surely mark hughes can't waste another transfer budget on him!?

Sorry but if u think our debt is £20m and we are paying it back at £1m a year your not in the real world.If we only had to pay a £1m each year don't u think we would be offering our player on the last year of contract a new one.SORRY BUT WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE.Rangers News

Walter Smith is biding his time about signing as the new squad rules in the EPL mean that there may be a few players either available for loan or for a reduced transfer fee. We don't have a lot of money as everyone knows, so he is waiting to try to get the best value for what we have available.

Also as to the debt, £20m is repayable at £1m a year, so the debt (including the rest) is managable. Also with respect to the possible HMRC issue, they seem to be issuing against a few English teams in court recently so if it was a cast iron case then surely they would have taken rangers to court already (before anyone says they are waiting for the outcome of the other cases, these would not set a precendent as they are under English law not Scottish)

Roman Bednar is likely before the big kickoff, with Moses still a possibility. Not sure on the sittuation, but it appears Bednar could now be a loan option until Jan, where we will have the option to make the move perminent if his loan spell is a success.

Adel Taarabt is still possible with a very small fee agreed with Spurs. It seems he's stalling on a contract and terms are being negotiated as we speak. Also, the young Zimbabwean left back from Plymouth, Onismor Bhasera could be coming in for a small fee.

Kaspars Gorkss could be off to Leeds.(56)(31)

Chelsea will not be buying Kaka. Ancelotti has already made it clear that he has no intention of even bidding for him.. let alone signing him.

Ancelotti has also said that it is highly unlikely that Ashley Cole will be sold this summer. Maybe if Cole handed in a transfer request to make it clear that he wishes to leave AND the right bid of around £30m (Chelsea's value price for Cole) comes in then maybe Cole will be off.

Seen a bit more speculation that Liverpool are after Christian Poulsen. This was a target of Rafa Benitez before he left, yet rumours have it Liverpool still want him. I'm not too sure why because he is 30 and with this homegrown player rule coming in soon Liverpool would not benefit from this signing. If it were me I'd wait for the takeover to be complete and then try a £30m bid for Milner instead of Poulsen.
Also, according to the sun today.. SEVEN teams are after Daniel Pacheco! Real Sociedad, Malaga, Mallorca, Espanyol, Levante, Benfica and Genoa are all after this lad.

What you reckon Ed? {editor's note – I don't believe the Poulsen rumours personally and I don't want to believe the Pacheco ones!}(12)(15)

Stop the nonsense posting that steve davis will be sold by rangers this season. He is most probably our most influential player and SMITH has already said there is no chance of him being sold and he will be playing CM this season his preferred position. STEVEN DAVIS WILL NOT LEAVE THIS SEASON.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have been informed of a rumour by someone who works in football that Cesc will demand a move this summer when he returns tomorrow, and may even refuse to be apart of the members day and team photo shoot arranged for tomorrow

Big day at the Emirates, as a arsenal supporter i am now of the opinion that we should get rid and force Barca to part with 50m. Arsenal should go public and say Cesc can go to Barca but for the right market value putting all the pressure of the deal on Cesc and Barca's shoulder, while in the meantime sign Ozil who according to my friend is willing to be Cesc's replacement

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

YOUR MATE IS MISTAKEN, CERTAINLY REGARDING OZIL ANYWAY, OZIL HAS TWICE COME OUT AND SAID THAT HE WOULD LOVE TO JOIN CHELSEA OR MANCHESTER UNITED, NOW I KNOW FOR A FACT BOTH CHELSEA AND MANCHESTER UNITED ARE IN THE HUNT FOR HIM SO I WOULD SAY THAT RULES ARSENAL OUT OF THE CHASE WOULDN'T YOU?(26)(23)

To this fellow:

This came right outta a first teamers mouth as he went past me yesterday afternoon at the training ground, "Mez is interested, the boss has agreed £18M and he is coming over on Thursday for his medical, and that could be the end of Fab". Mez ? Ozil maybe ?? More later YF

Why would ozil be referred to as mez considering none of the first team know him? Nobody in arsenal is german and nobody came from werder bremen, so why would they give him a nickname? Good try but i don't believe you heard this.(3)(13)

United play in dublin tonight and are training this afternoon in carton house were i work and we have had 12 teams over this yr and get a lot of info. united are not staying over and i have told reason is that saf wants all his transfer dealings done before they head to wembly as he wants good start to season and hopes to get a head start on rivals.the united coach who came over yesterday to set things up didn't really tell us to much but said 100% 2 players coming in now and deal done for another 2 in jan .. one thing he did say was no strikers this year as hernadaz looks good and owen and berba will be given another season plus diouf macadia wellbeck and they are very very excited about a kid called keane in youths also that if they do go for a striker it will be rossi as he would qualify under new rules as he was there for 5 yr's .. when i asked was ozil coming in he smiled and said who knows and when i said i hope milner doesn't leave villa he said he would but may not be for city !! another bit of info i got was that there has been a major split in the city camp seemly toure brothers and few british players(27)(15)

Recent Blackpool FC rumours .

Blackpool have this week had Marlon Harewood and Michael Ball on trial. My sources tell me that the Harewood deal may be on but the stumbling block is going to be his wages. Michael Ball has not impressed as much so Olly is going to give him a chance in the game against Hibs on Saturday. Scott Sinclair is another possible deal but as of yet like all three of these players nothing has been signed! Olly is also looking at bringing in Sonny from Valencia on a season long lone and has asked Sir Alex about the possibility of Danny Welbeck (who I REALLY don`t rate).


Any way all these have yet to be signed and we only have a few days left before the season starts. (squeaky bum time!)

I have heard roy hodgson wants to sign and english striker to play with fernando torres and his top 2 on the list are Peter Crouch and Darren Bent.

Now with this investment on its way into the club.dont be suprised to see a 1518million bid for Darren Bent who would love another crack at a top english club and european fottball to show Mr. Capello just exactly what he can do.


also defour and bridge are poised to join before the end of the week.


the whole sergio auguero deal is silly, this will never happen because sergio wants champions league football..and Liverpool can't offer him that atm.

Everton playmaker Mikel Arteta has reportedly told newspaper El Mundo Deportivo that he would jump at the chance to return to Barcelona


Reports surfaced over the weekend that the Catalan giants were cooling on their interest in Cesc Fabregas and instead were looking at the £12m rated Arteta at Everton.
Like Fabregas, Arteta was a trainee at Barca but left for Rangers in 2002 and according to the reports, he has already told Everton boss David Moyes that he wants to return to Spain.
How much truth is in that remains to be seen but Moyes will be desperate to keep the player on board at Goodison Park but he will know if Barcelona come calling it may well be an uphill battle.

A wealthy Indian businessman has emerged as a possible buyer for Blackburn.
Ahasan Ali Syed, head of the investment company Western Gulf Advisory, is understood to have opened talks with Blackburn's advisers at investment bank Rothschild.
Syed is not the only person to have expressed an interest in Rovers, however. Other parties have been in touch over recent months about a possible takeover.

Under the hammer: Blackburn Rovers could be the latest Premier League club to be taken over by new owners
Blackburn chairman John Williams said: 'There have been a number of interested parties for some time and discussions are ongoing.'
Syed's company WGA are based in Bahrain and Switzerland and the 36yearold is a lawyer who studied at the London School of Economics.
He is reported to being promising to clear the club's £20million debt and invest £300million to sustain the club over a long period of time.

Rover the moon: Blackburn cost welcome a host of news signings to their lineup, alongside Jason Roberts (R)
A number of consortiums have contacted the Jack Walker Trustees over the last three years including one from exJJB Sports chief Chris Ronnie, and another based in Iceland.
In June another Indian entrepreneur, Saurin Shah, was reported as being prepared to bid for the club but, for all the activity, nothing has come close to a deal being done.

YF Thanks Georgearsenal42, 3 Aug 2010 21:05:44
To the guy who said this
YF All the talk around Colney was of a tall German(ish) looking defender, although i am now lead to believe that the German language that was overheard, was in fact Serbian or Croatian. But after the performance of Laurent Koscienly at the Emirates over the weekend, all talks of signing a BIG NAME centre back have gone out of the window and a bid for another youngster will be made instead, look out for a 19 year old French (yes surprise surprise a French) lad coming in. Mr W has been talking to representatives of Rene Adler and Hugo Lloris recently, but the goalkeeper position will be filled by none other than. Joe Hart £8M from City as he wants first team football to prove to Capello he is number 1 for the Euro's. This came right outta a first teamers mouth as he went past me yesterday afternoon at the training ground, "Mez is interested, the boss has agreed £18M and he is coming over on Thursday for his medical, and that could be the end of Fab". Mez ? Ozil maybe ?? More later YF

i think you may be onto something here with the centre back because arsenal have been in talks with bosnia and montpellier centre emir spahic and the talks are going well and the language is similar to serbian or croatian so i would say he will be signing in the near future.

georgearsenal42 YF i saw this morning that the Bosnian was linked, maybe it was him?? We have been asked to make sure that the Colney site is "looking its best" for tomorrow morning, visitors are expected at 10.30am. i personally think it is Lloris and his party as a lot of the French guys have been getting excited over the last couple of days, bearing this in mind, i best go cut the grass YF(10)(33)

I have it on very good authority from a man I know who works at the ticket office at Old Trafford that Man Utd are very close to a deal to bring Mesut Ozil to the club. The only obstacle at the moment is the transfer fee with Sir Alex reluctant to pay more than £11,000,0000 for his services. If this deal falls through Manchester Utd will try to sign Stephen Ireland. No striker will be brought in as Sir Alex feels Hernandez is going to become a top class player and Dimitar Berbatov will still come good. Rumours regarding Lassana Diarra are nonsence but Stephen Defour could arrive in January.(42)(36)

To the Person who said that Rangers won't be signing Jelavic. McCoist has flown to Austria today in an effort to close the deal. Also, it's in Todays Papers that Rangers have even upped the offer to 3.5 million which is Vienna's asking price for the player. Also, the player himself even said He wants to move to Rangers. There's no suggestion at this point that the deal won't go through.

Also, someone said Steven Davis was a "flop" at Villa. Davis was named Villa's "Young Player of the Year", "The Fans Player of the Year" and "Player of the Year" for 2005/06. Davis played over 100 games for Villa. He's also reached a UEFA Cup Final with Rangers, last seasons Player of the year in Scotland, has CL experience, plays at international Level. He's only 25 and well worth 5million pounds if not more. He's a good player and I'm sure most would agree.

Lastly, to the Person who said Hinkel, Loovens and Samaras will leave Celtic for Millions. Hinkel is out of the picture at Celtic because of His poor form. He was also interviewed by a Newspaper and said that He will stay and finish the last year of His contract because there has been no interest from other Clubs. Loovens is probably Celtics best Center half at the moment and there's been no mention of Him being sold. Add to the fact that the Celtic defence has been leaking Goals for a LONG time so why would anyone be interested in throwing millions of pounds Celtic's way for those two. Also, both Samaras and Fortune scored around 20 goals total last season. Robbie Keane had to be loaned in to try and "save Celtic's season". Samaras, for the most part, hasn't looked interested when playing for Celtic.

Big Money for Hinkel, Samaras and Loovens is wishful thinking not fact. The only big money Celtic are likely to get is from the McGeady's Transfer. Lennon said recently that future transfers hinge on His departure.(44)(31)

The Premier League has been alerted that there may be a possible take over at Anfield! Due to the problems that caused Portsmouth to go into administration, the premier league set new rules. The premier league has to be given 10 days notice of a take over so the new interested parties can prove they have the funds to sustain the club. It is 100% true that the Premier League has been alerted by both the club (Liverpool) and a number of parties interested in buying the club. (Can you back this up Ed?) {editor's note – it is definitely true.}(40)(16)

How do people seriously expect Fulham (a club with a wage budget, (remember what one of those is City)) to sign ireland 120k, bellemy 85k, bridge 80k, santa cruz 90k. maybe on loan with a 50/50 split on wages, certainly not full time with those wages.
Maybe Hughes will go back to City, but only for people such as Kelvin Etuhu, Nedum Onuha, Michael Johnson or Felipe Cacido.
More realistically he will dip into the blackburn ranks and try to pinch Ryan Nelson.
Or stick to the Welsh lads. or maybe even utilise his and fulhams good relationship with SAF and try and bring a loanee in such as Welbeck or cleverly.
my predictions for the squad next year, (not rumours, as i do not know any bar whats in the papers) just what i think could happen.

Schwarzer

Pantsill Hangeland Hughes Konchesky

Davies Murphy M.Johnson (Man city) Duff

Zamora Bellamy (Loan)

subs. Stockdale, Senderos, Kelly, Dempsey, Etuhu, A.Johnson, Wellbeck, Greening, Baird, Kamara, Luke Young.

Not as much business as people are thinking, we have a good squad, just need a couple of signings and to get AJ fit. we have already signed 2, and only lost 1. providing we don't lose any more of the first team squad (not including, E.Johnson, Stoor, Elm, Kallio ect) we should be fine, even kamara could still do us a job under the correct guidance. not sure about that Dikacoi.

believe me when i say this. Fulham will not braeak there wage budget for any player. Al Fayed has his critics but he is no mug.(13)(16)

To the person that said this:
Arteta will not be leaving Everton this season as he is a loyal player who supports Atletico Madrid and unless Atleti buy him (if the deal for misimovic falls through) then he will stay at Everton. He will not move to Arsenal in respect for Everton or Barca because of Atletico

Arteta played for barca's youth team so i think he'd have no problems going there(13)(20)

So we are going to sell 11 players? as well as letting 2 more English homegrowns go although the new rules are coming in? its ppl like u that give a club like chelsea a bad name! Flourent Malouda had a stellar season and would not be sold when he is finally coming into consistent form! Ashley Cole for 30m? get off the gear mate! Carlos Anchelloti has come out numourous times now saying that he is the BEST LB in the world and we will NOT sell him.. Benayoun was bought as a SQUAD player.. he will not be commanding regular first game action. you are a RETARD!

Seriously Ed, you run a terrific site and im on here all day but the rubbish being posted is making me sick!(10)(26)

A bid of 5mil pounds was rejected for Lucas Leiva from Palermo.However they have not given up on him and are preparing a new improved offer believed to be in the region of 8.

Hodgson looking at Gokhan Inler of Udinese as well as midfield destroyer Axel Witsel of Standard Liege. What do you think ed inler or witsel?

Mourinho close to deal for Maicon of Inter after which will turn attentions to Ashley Cole.

One more liverpool target apparently hodgson is also looking at playmaker/left wing Jose Manuel Jurado of Atletico Madrid. {editor's note – Witsel makes me uncomfortable, there is one particular tackle he made which, in my opinion, should have led to a lifetime ban from the game. So I really don't want to see him pulling on a Liverpool shirt.}(19)(13)

I also think mcgeady won't go to to moscow. he used to come a nitght club i worked in and can honestly say he's still struggling with english let alone trying to learn russian. if i was a villa fan would be worried. 8m lol money down the pan imo. far better tallent out there for prob less or not a great deal more. think martin should think again.(27)(16)

That's another player to add to the list of those who have turned down Man City in favour of a club with honour and principle.

I'm not a Liverpool fan by any means but I have new found respect for Torres for commiting to the team that has put him on the world stage.

I wonder if the Man City owners have come to realise that not everyone out there is driven by money as they are.

Anyway, on to transfers and the two most obvious big money signings arriving in the Premiership this summer are :

Ramires to Chelsea
Ozil to Man United(26)(23)

Rangers Rumours: Jelavic isn't signing he is going to everton, welcome is signing but walter smith will try to offload some players , so he can get funds to keep the banks happy.

Celtic Rumours: My cousins husband works in parkhead and he said that if celtic sell mcgeady , they will buy liam lawerence, a keeper (probz a mid table epl side keeper) and a left back to give mulgrew competition(probz wallace), then the rest of the money will b spend on trying to get Robbie Keane on loan( which won't happen) or Craig Bellamy on loan or kept for january.(30)(40)

Rangers News

Walter Smith is biding his time about signing as the new squad rules in the EPL mean that there may be a few players either available for loan or for a reduced transfer fee. We don't have a lot of money as everyone knows, so he is waiting to try to get the best value for what we have available.

Also as to the debt, £20m is repayable at £1m a year, so the debt (including the rest) is managable. Also with respect to the possible HMRC issue, they seem to be issuing against a few English teams in court recently so if it was a cast iron case then surely they would have taken rangers to court already (before anyone says they are waiting for the outcome of the other cases, these would not set a precendent as they are under English law not Scottish)

We are going to bring another lb probably Siako Tiene or lee Wallace. A new cb will definitely be coming in probably Ivan Ramis after Mallorca offered us him for half price because they are in debt they may also bring in Kelvin Wilson who is desperate for a move. They might go for Bellamy to fill the no.7 shirt depending on the sale of mcgeady. Expect a new keeper either Stipe Pletikosa or Timo Hildebrand. Samaras crosas hinkel mcgeady loovens and Sheridan will move on. Ferry and caddis have already left for a combined fee of 450k a few will be loaned out like Hutchinson misun and Thompson.

Hey ed, any reason for Harry Redknapps absense from spurs game tonight vs benfica? is there a transfer near completion? you heard any transfer news into tottenham?

Also i am hearing Stipe Pletikosa is coming to us on a year long loan deal with a view to being permanent, any news on this?

Cheers in advance {editor's note – I am sorry mate, I was in meetings and then out with my little girl all yesterday. I didn't even get to see SSN at any point during the day, let alone speak to anyone. I actually felt lost without knowing what was going on! But I was once told by an ex–pro that the only reason a manager doesn't go to watch his players in a friendly is because he is busy signing replacements for those players.}(17)(12)

Roy Hodgson intrested in bringing vetran full back John Arne Riise back to Anfield as he badly needs another left back who has good experience of playing in the premier league. Riise would cost around £4m but could rise to £5m due to add ons. The Norweigan would welcome back a move to his beloved Liverpool as it has been reported he is unhappy in Rome. The new Liverpool boss is also keeping a close eye on Ryan Shawcross as he is a big fan of the Stoke skipper and wants to bring in more english talent to add to his squad.(39)(28)

Bosnian centreback Emir Spahic will be enveiled as an Arsenal player on the 5th of August. On the Arsenal 'keeper situation, if Schwarzer doesn't join, which is basically up to Hughes, Fabianski will be No.1 next season.

Also, Stephen Ireland will be joining the red side of Manchester very soon. SAF is a big admirer and Ireland will have no qualms after being "mistreated" at City. He went from player of the season to lingering in the reserves and Fergie will give Stephen the life line that he needs to get his career moving again.(16)(24)

My step brother is mates with paul caddis, was a celtic player just yesterday now away to swindon. he has said mcgeady has no intresed at all about going to russia he is only going over to try and tempt a epl team to bid for him. if he does go to the epl expect it to be birmingham and not villa as villa won't pay anymore than 7 mill for him(28)(21)

To the person who wrote below, i would hope west ham make all there signings b4 season ends.

West Ham will sign a young player who starred in the world cup. Possibly Kevin Prince Boateng or Alexis Sanchez. Also they will sign Paulo Ferreira before the season ends.

Southampton rumours:

> Antonio, this is a realistic rumour pardrew helped him become better and the fans love him so hopefully we will sign him

> Darren Carter, we lack depth in central midfield he has trailed in one friendly and we were told he would appear in another but didn't. This has a good possibility of happening but also the fact no news has come about this yet I believe his demands were too much as a lot of clubs try to overprice us due to are new financial backbone but Nc won't take any crap

> Le Fondre, I really think this will happen because he's not tested in the higher tiers but saints need striker back up plus depth so I believe a player with his potential is something that would fit in perfectly

These are the 3 most likely, other possibilities are matt Phillips, Nathan Tyson he appears to be likely to go to blackpool instead now tho, frimpong on loan dawson has been mentioned but I'm not to sure if we will sign him considering we already have Martin and seaborne who have both done well pre season but possible for further back up but I doubt it Darius vassel is very very unlikely but also rumoured benjani will never happen(25)(13)

Arteta will not be leaving everton this season as he is a loyal player who supports atletico madrid and unless atleti buy him (if the deal for misimovic falls through) then he will stay at everton. he will not move to arsenal in respect for everton or barca because of atletico.

if arteta is such a loyal player why won't he sign a new deal, to prove to the fans his commitment to the club that took him off the scrapheap?

fox

yak will go to west ham for £9m, donovan will be signed then for £10m, ive been telling ye this for ages. right or wrong editor??

is the landon donovan signing actually going to happen? two/threes weeks ago you told us how hatem ben arfa was in the bag and would sign on the dotted line at the end of july!!


everton, just to clarify a few things

arteta will not be joining arsenal whatever fabregas does
pienaar now more likely to stay

how do you know this? depending on what you want to believe both players have substantial contract offers waiting to be signed! both players should be issued ultimatums or sold to bring in players who want to play for the club!


also everton have had talks with scharner and huntlaar. huntlaar has spoken to eight prem clubs. the players agent says klass jan huntelaar isn't leaving milan. so why is he talking to other clubs?(15)(9)

Pat from the Gorbals ere

Am a regular at Bairds Bar and the big rumour in there tonight was a youngster from Toulouse called Moussa Sissoko is having talks with his agent and Peter Lawell over a possible move to Parkhead.

The teams are looking to agree a fee and Sissoko is hoping to get to Glasgow as soon as possible to check out the facilities at Lennoxtown.

The fee is to be said around 4.5m on a 3 year deal

FACT!


Sorry to disappoint you but Moussa Sissoko is one of the most highly rated young box to box midfielders in France.Spurs tried to buy him last summer and were quoted 18 million euros.He won't be going to Parkhead nor will he be going anywhere for 4.5 mill(7)(28)

Hi guys, Bristol City are the talk of the transfers at the moment what with the signing of Jamo. But we must NOT get carried away. I have read the stupid rumours about Heskey joining us for £1.5m? To my fellow fans, get a life. Heskey will NOT be joining us! As for Michael "Sicknote" Owen joining us, he is a proven goalscorer, but he also will NOT be joining us. Sorry to burst your bubbles! If Coppell had sense he would buy a proven goalscorer, like Rickie Lambert, he scored 37 goals last season. I know he is an ex GASHEAD, but he would fit in the team. On an other bit of news. There has been vandalism at the Memorial Stadium. Some FANS calling themselves City supporters have been leaving messages that is offensive to the Rovers family. On behalf of the sensible fans, i apologise!(17)(17)
