Is it true the odds on j cole to anfield have been slashed? A mate told me(a man u fan).Personally think it wouldn't be a bad thing as long as he isn't being offered mad wages, he is a better player than Riera who goes missing when defensive duties are needed, also another englishman for our quota.Last season was certainly not his best but neither was it for most of the "stars" already at LFC.

All these rumors going on about fernando torres and steven gerrard leaving liverpool is a load of CP . as i watched tv yesterday liverpool boss said that Gerrard and Torres arent for sale so don't bother to make a bid that's what he said. Torres hasnt snubbed liverpool so all i have to say is don't write something that isn't true .. it just confusing people because one persons saying one thing and another is saying different .. this is the god honest truth . if you don't believe me go to the LFC website and it tells you everything. Hodgson has sed .

Pachecco and Torres will be upfrount alongside dirk kuyt
Steven Gerrard is Midfield as he is now and xabi alonso might be coming back on loan

Also other players have been sed to come to liverpool but none have been comfirmed yet
Riera may be stayin too as it is said on the website and yossi and lucus and masherano have deffo gone so there you have it x

Spoke to Andy Rodgers today – leaving East Stirling for Ayr Utd – signing tomorrow. Jamie Stevenson may be having a trial for Lincoln. Shame – 2 of the best players leaving.

Ease up the Shire

I get bored of the rumours about Blackpool, they will spend modistly, but will spend. As posted earlier in the week, E–Banks blake and Cohen will arrive later this week. There will also be a couple of players arriving from abroad, delays due to world cup involvement. They also have bids in for a couple of other players (such as Halmosi from Ull), but these are being negotiated. Other signings will include frees of a reasonably high quality, 2/3 of which will be concluded Thurs / Fri. Other under 21s may come in, but potential targets are not known.

All in all I would expect 7/8 signings before the end of the season.

Leicester will announce Paulo Sousa on a two–year deal within the next two days, and now the foxes will have money to spend after Milan Mandaric's trip abroad to find investors has paid off. The following are strongly being linked with a move to the club:
Marlon Harewood – free
James Vaughan – season–long loan from Everton
Robert Koren – free
Darren Pratley – 1.5m
Michael Tonge – 750k
Liam Lawrence – 2m
Jay Spearing – season–long loan from Liverpool
Alex Bruce – 500k


To the person that wrote this why would the swans sell pratley for 1.5 when they rejected 2mil from forest in jan??? There is also rumours that Sousa left because pratley has already agrees terms with either forest or Celtic so your other targets are prob none to reliable are they. How ever I agree Sousa is on the way and is a cracking appointment

If Roy hodgson can convince joe cole to join Liverpool, he will allow gerrard to leave for real Madrid and ask for Karim Benzema plus cash.

Aha ha im a lfc fan an that is funny what do u think gerrard is worth 30–40mil
Benzema is worth 20–25 mil
Gerrard 20mil

So what you ment to say is we offer gerrard plus 10 for benzema

I don't post on here often, only when I hear a genuine rumour :

Word on the grapevine is Man U would love Sneijder, but the stumbling block is the fee – surely astronomical after this world cup. If Sir Alex hadnt been such a stubborn old boy, we surely could have got him in the Ronaldo deal. At least 30m now!! Hoping a deal can be settled, always thought he was quality & now he's dominating games like he did for Ajax.

I want to also say the " Ed " is bang on with his rumours – is the Ed actually the Stig?! Ed?

LEEDS NEWS :
Geovanni will join Leeds when they get back from Solvakia the 30–year old striker left Hull by mutral consent, the Brazilain will be number 17 at Elland Road.

1. Learn to spell
2. He would not join Leeds. If he stays in England (which I doubt), he will go to a Premier League club.
But he is likely to go abroad – Greece is the most likely.

here m8 am a celtic fan a work there as pitch responce m8 am just a loyal fan as u but m8 u know half ae that is just she we won't get keane and bellamy we will be lucky to get 1 and for petrov he won't come back to celtic he has done all he can do and for hooper he is going to middelbrough and ledley we don't pay compo because we are scottish not english so m8 please do reserch before writeing crap


I had a / between Keane and Bellamy which means one or the other I never said both would be coming

I think there might just be a chance of Petrov returning but we all have our own opinions

Hooper is still being linked with Celtic so I tried to include him but he is more likely to go to Middlesborough as you said

From what I heard the compensation is only like £150 000 but it is still compensation Celtic would have to pay

 

06 Jul 2010 21:42:21
Aberdeen are considering a £200k bid from Hearts for Darren Mackie who has been told he doesn't feature in the managers plans

Ryan Dickson (Brentford) – Tribrunal
Frazer Richardson (Charlton) – £450,000
Brian Stock (Doncaster) – £1, 100,000
Michail Antonio (Reading) – Loan
Jeremie Aliadiere (Free–agent) – Free

Alan Pardew will look at Free Transfers first but if Nothing attracts him, he will start spending some money.

He will also try and get some Decent Young players that are available for Loans.

Rangers expect a barrel load of players to leave, one or two already having done so. Few SPL + League 1/lower Championship players to be brought in, mostly promoted youth though.
McGregor and Alexander both to leave, so John Ruddy and Kenny Arthur are being looked at as replaements. Goodwillie/Craig Conway will NOT go to Ibrox, rather Gary Kenneth will, while Sone ALuko is being looked at. More rumours when I get them. R

Is that the same Ruddy who signed for Norwich yesterday?

R A N G E R S

Teddy Bears starting line up to look like this next season :

GK – McGREGOR, rumours say he might be looking to move on but Walter wants to keep him at Ibrox
RB – WHITTAKER, finding a bit form towards the end of the season, could play a big part next season.
LB – PAPAC, European teams and an English Premier League side have showed interest in Sasa but he'll stay.
CB – BOUGHERRA, staying at the minute. Unless a strong bid comes in Rangers won't let him leave. He's happy here aswell.
CB – WEBSTER, like a new signing after having a loan spell in Dundee, Andy will form a strong partnership in defence.
RM – BRUNT, Walter to sign the Northern Irishman from WBA, they've gave him the money to spend on his No.1 target.
LM – DAVIS, will continue to play out of position on the left flank but will play anywhere for Rangers.
CM – THOMSON, he'll recieve the Captaincy and play a major role in their push for 3–in–a–row. Rejected bids this summer.
CM – EDU, Smith feels he's yet to get the best from Mo and this year he'll try to do so.
ST – GOODWILLIE, Smith will pay around £2.5M for the the young Scots services.
ST – VELICKA, when returned from injury, he'll play the holding role and give the other strikers options.

Alexander, Wilson, Weir, Broadfoot, Ness, Lafferty, Miller, Naismith and Fleck will all play roles.

Transfer Rumours : WELCOME the Honduras striker has been targeted but a Work Permit situation may cause problems. CONWAY from Dundee United is a possibility. James McARTHUR of Hamilton is being scouted but interest from English Premier League is the stumbling block. Gary KENNETH of Dundee United has been looked at but with players staying it's unlikely.

Edany info on buzsacky coming back to plymouth? i couldn't see it happening as he had a good season with qpr however it would be a quality singing. Also any idea what the fee will be for scott sinclair? cheers {editor's note – I don't know anything about Buzsacky returning to Plymouth. Whether that's because it is not happening or not I can't be sure, it does seem unlikely unless he doesn't get on with Colin, which, let's face it, is very likely. A friend of mine helped do the removal for Colin when he took the Sheff U job, he said they ended up just dumping the stuff out the back of the van because he was an abusive tt. I just can't picture Neil Warnock screaming at anyone though, can you? ;o) Scott Sinclair is a pretty much nominal fee from what I can gather, is he over 21? That would explain why they are getting rid.}

Chelsea Team for next season:

Cech
Ramos
Zhirkov
Terry
Ivanovic
Lampard
Essien
Kaka
Aguero
Drogba
Malouda/Kakuta (depends on who is on form)

In my opinion i think Aguero would be a better option for Chelsea rather than Fernando Torres as i feel it would give the club a whole different style to attacking especially if Chelsea aquire the marvelous midfield tactician that is Kaka and the attacking full–back Sergio–Ramos all three signings look like they can be accomplished.
Fortunatly Bastian Schweinsteiger doent look like he is coming, this is good for Chelsea as he probably wouldn't adapt well to the Premier League. Also Mesut Ozil is a 50/50 to sign, well he is like this with many clubs' fans thinking he will join them but i think the best club for him would be real Madrid as with their new managr they will certainly win things and if Kaka does join Chelsea, there will be a gap in the starting XI in midfield and he would obviously make it into the first team with Gago & Van Der Vaart being urged to leave as make–weights for people like Gerrard.
I'm not too sure about R.Lukaku's future but i think i remember seeing somethng on a website about him either signing a new contract or sayng he wants to stay for another year.
Mueller will not come if Ancelotti feels he is paying too much for him as i don't think he will gamble atleast £24 Million on 5 performances for Mueller at the World Cup.
Ashley Cole will be part of the deal for Sergio–Ramos or shall i say: Ramos will be part of the deal for Cole with £8–10 Million along with him.

Insua has signed a new 4 year contract at Liverpool.
Also he is getting payed 60,000 a week.

06 Jul 2010 20:59:36
This is theturdz speaking
for the attention of the editor
i will admit that i do look at the koptalk website i look all over the web for bits of info regarding lfc this is just to back up what im told by my very reliable source at the club i am a fan of lfc and need to know what is going on at the club and relay my info here these are the facts that i know there is no offer pending all players have their price as you can see torres is now being pursued relentlessly by chelsea its my understanding that he has been made aware of the massive financial rewards that he will get by signing for them were talking £200,000 per week after tax that's what abromovic is prepared to sanction to get his man this is chelseas marquee signing no other player in the world comes close to this man not even ronaldo or rooney believe me when i say this and im as gutted as every lfc fan, if we lose him then we may as well throw in the towel and accept our fall from grace believe me it will get worse regardless of what the chiarman and purslow say we need the billionairs owner now yesterday not in a months time when the players have been sold.
remember the name remember theturdz {editor's note – Torres has known the financial rewards on offer at Chelsea for years mate. He joined Liverpool despite Chelsea and others offering more than double the money for him to join them. He will see where the club is going and what Roy's plans are for the future before he makes any decision on his future, but I expect him to go abroad if he leaves.}

I freely admit this is more conjecture than substance but i have some theories about the immediate future at Liverpool. Firstly i believe some of Rafa's 'favourites' are on the way out. Mascherano, Kuyt, Skrtel, Lucas and most worryingly Torres could all be on their way. Do they love the club enough to stay, do they believe in Roy enough to stay? Only time will tell but as a fan we have to hope their love of liverpool and playing in front of the Kop is enough to persuade them to give Roy some time to gel the squad into a team. I think having watched every game last season that Rafa lost some of the players. People like Babel and Yossi and maybe even Gerrard and Carra lost faith with Rafa. Benayoun's sale has been arranged for ages (and has nothing to do with potential Arab owners coming in). So i believe (and hope) Stevie is gonna stay thinking it will be worthwhile giving Roy some time but not even Stevie has decided yet. My belief is his love of Liverpool combined with wanting to give Roy a chance will persuade him to stay. I also choose to believe Broughton when he said players will not have to be sold to raise funds to mitigate debt. So if Gerrard or anyone else wants to leave it will be their choice. My gut feel at this time is he will stay and his decision may have an impact on Torres who also hasnt decided yet. To be fair he's a bit busy at the mo. I am certain all the speculation about him is just that – paper talk.

As for players coming in, alot of players came and went under Rafa. Without exception these players fell out of favour with Rafa but you will never hear one of them say anything negative about the club. Its the best club in the world to play for – imagine listening to 40,000 singing YNWA at the end of game you are losing!

So i could imagine players returning. Michael Owen, Peter Crouch, Xabi Alonso, Danny Murphy and others. Owen for example wanted to come back to Liverpool before ManU came in for him but Rafa didn't want him. Perhaps Roy will give him a call? Alonso fell out with Rafa not Liverpool, perhaps he would be tempted. I can envisage Murphy wanting to end his career back at Anfield with Roy in charge.

I have no knowledge of new players coming in but i like the idea of people like Aguero joining but i think we need to be realistic, we are a club without much cash and without champs league footie. Roy will have to conduct business shrewdly and carefully and i hope there are one or two interesting surprises. I agree with the editor here, i cannot see what Joe Cole will bring to the team and cannot remember seeing him play well. If he was that good why did chelsea release him? However, if he or anyone else joins we will back them as we do all players who don the red shirt.

Finally, great site this, no.1 resource for decent chat for fans, thanks for all the rumours and thanks ed for moderating.

Paul YNWA

I only post actual facts on here and i can confirm that Niell Collins will sign for leeds, terms agreed for a three year contract, in my opinion this is a good buy as we have a defence that always looks fragile when the opposition attacks, also heard that Lloyd Sam is in talks with the club over a 2 year deal but i am not confirming anything, this is just a rumour at this point.
Source for Neill Collins transfer Sky Sports
MOT

I'm a preston fan and i would love leeds to sign neill collins. He is absolutely terrible. Hopefully they will also take Darren Carter, Richard Chaplow and Chris Brown off our hands.

chrıs maguire to hamılton loan
bougy to newcastle 5 mıl
anderson to celtıc loan
matthew mcormack to rangers 500k
–
anderson of manchester united, don't think so. and who is mathew mcormack?

Ed any ideas, google hasnt helped me for once!

MLG {editor's note – could it be Ross he meant?}

I wouldn't think so because he publically announced he supports celtic, and wants to move there, no idea what he meant lol.

Ed u got any news on brunt or healy or welcome or goncalvanes (who we were told was signing last week from some posters). are any of these even true?

MLG {editor's note – only Healy and Welcome have any truth to them as far as I know. One or the other I believe, but that is a personal opinion rather than from a source that I think you will only sign one of them, but you are in for both.}

TO ALL LEEDS FANS !! forget about Hooper coming to yous because outside glanford park now, and he's just walked out having just signed a new 2 year contract with the iron ! hope you's all the best next season but unlucky cause hoops is not coming to elland road, very very reliable source will be announced friday morning apparently. Tait–sufc

If this is true this will show people tht Hooper has no ambition whatsoever.. Who would stay at a club who's aim each season is to avoid relegation when he could join a team with premier league ambition over the next few season, i highly doubt Hooper will stay at Scthorpe. He'd be daft too.

Torres Has Snubbed a deal from Liverpool



what a load of rubbish, he is contracted until 2013, sinse his last extension there has not been another offer. Fed up with this crap sourrounding him.
He may choose to leave, he may well stay but lets just stop with the complete bull until he himself says so. 35m from chelsea, they have a nerve to even try at that price. I can't imagine he will leave the club under 60m great british pounds. This is solely down to shirt sales and other revenue that he brings to the club. Despite the fact that liverpool will never let a player go ( for a joke sum of 35m) who they know fully well with a good season behind him will then be worth in the region of 70–80m.
Those who say lfc will take it for the money, the chairman has said otherwise.

Leeds Are Looking at a possible deal for hull reject Geovanni

 

06 Jul 2010 20:02:33
Ed, how much do you know about ledely and bellemy for celtic. eve67 {editor's note – Ledley's move is being held up by the compensation owed to Cardiff, he wants a Premier League club so now it is just a case of haggling a price. I expect to see him playing for Stoke next season, sorry. Bellamy is a little more complicated, his wages are high, though City have agreed to paying half if he goes on loan, which seems to holding everything up.}

"Liverpool will sign Jeremy Toulalan for €20m and Bryan Ruiz for €15m. Taye Taiwo will sign for €10m and Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic will both sign for free"
The toulalan rumour is true i said this a few weeks ago but it didn't make it(i think anyway). he will replace Mascherano who will leave for barcelona(32Million baby)Toulalan is fantastic, not gilberto silve he left for greece bcuz its an easier league for his age he is not coming back to the prem.other liverpool rumours:
im sure you've all heard bryan ruiz
and j.COLE
i hope not scharner
unfortunately insua could leave with figueroa coming in

whoever wants bolton rumours i hear they want steven taylor to replace cahill and a new striker– that croation lad blackburn want–they will hijack blacburn's bid, if not–fraizer campbell(hope this helps)

my source for these rumours KETCHUP(and for my eggbread:)

Avram Grant & The chairmen are busy looking for new signings. Piquionne is a done deal. West Ham are also preparing new bids for Neymar and Loic Remy. Vincent Enyeama has been in contact and a bid will be made of around £2m. Luke Young and Steve Sidwell are both targets and we could offer around £6m for the two. We have bid for Mexico winger Barrerra (£5m) but Espanyol are also interested. Paul Konchesky is considering a return to Upton Park. We have also made a take it or leave it offer to Joe Cole, weekly wages of around £70,000. Plus plently of Bonuses and Add Ons. It is a very good offer and one that he may find hard to refuse. Thats about it at the moment – Editor, Have you heard any other west ham rumours or have anything to add on mine? {editor's note – no, I don't have any extras to add, Grant is taking a look at the squad now in pre–season training before making any decisions about other players to target I was told. He wants a good look at the youth players there in case there are any hidden diamonds that can enable him to use the money elsewhere.}

Chelsea make 35m official bid for fernando torres
i know that he doesn't want to leave but the club could let him go to have the money . i know u know about that ED but what do u think.

Torres Has Snubbed a deal from Liverpool and refuses to commit his future yet, he is thinking of leaving but is not to sure, maybe missing spain so can't understand the rumours surrounding chelsea and city but presume they have the money to buy him. {editor's note – where did you get the snubbing a deal bit from? I have not heard

again aload of rubbish, in future people, read the full story not just the headline. Torres has not snubbed a deal and is under contract until 2013 he is looking forward to talks with woy and seeing wer he is looking to take liverpool

Alright Ed Villa fan here, constantly been linked with Keane, Eduardo, Rodallega, McGeady, Parker etc but have you got any real news? Heard we've enquired about SWP & Ben Arfa any news on these 2?, would be great signings
AVFC–Rooney {editor's note – I know some posters on here think McGeady is nailed on, possibly as a replacement for Ashley Young. I am not convinced myself, I would have though MON would have got him long before now if he really wanted him. Parker I think is a no no, purely because of his experience at Chelsea, I think he is settled and happy at West Ham and will stay unless they suffer relegation. I don't know anything about a move for SWP or Ben Arfa though, both would make sense.}

In reply to the leeeds fan who asked if we will be signinng anybody this week. grayson put on the official leeds website last week that he hopes to bring in at least 1 more player before we depart to europe on saturday for our pre season tour. no idea who he is chasing though, grayson keeps his hand pretty close to his chest. garyd MOT



Looks like that's going to be Neil Collins although i think we all know we'd prefer it to be Hooper

 

06 Jul 2010 19:37:18
Arsenal and Spurs are locked in battle for German defender Serdar Tasci, the player himself has said Arsenal would be his preference as he has so much respect for Wenger. Also Inter are planning to offer Ballotelli in exchange for Cesc this might just be whats needed so Barca get the finger out and start getting realistic. Both of these have come from Goal.com, so make of it what you will. Heard from a different source that Given will be between the sticks for Arsenal next year. Really wish this was true but I have my doubts.

Darren Pratley – 1.5m
Michael Tonge – 750k
Liam Lawrence – 2m

The Premier League have introduced a home–grown player rule which will come into effect from next season, alongside a limit on squad sizes.

From the 2010/11 campaign, the 20 Premier League clubs have voted to introduce measures which will see all teams required to have eight home–grown players out of a squad of 25.

Chief executive Richard Scudamore confirmed the changes, with clubs only able to make alterations to their squads during the two transfer windows.

"As of next season clubs will be required to have a squad named of up to 25 players, of which no more than 17 can be over the age of 21 and not home grown, " Scudamore said.

"The definition of home grown is trained for three years under the age of 21 by somebody in the English and Welsh professional system.

"Clubs will have to declare their 25 at the end of August when the window shuts and then again at the end of January."

Players who are aged under 21 are eligible over and above the limit of 25 players per squad.

Rangers expect a barrel load of players to leave, one or two already having done so. Few SPL + League 1/lower Championship players to be brought in, mostly promoted youth though.
McGregor and Alexander both to leave, so John Ruddy and Kenny Arthur are being looked at as replaements. Goodwillie/Craig Conway will NOT go to Ibrox, rather Gary Kenneth will, while Sone ALuko is being looked at. More rumours when I get them.


_

Ruddy signed for Norwich yesterday.
Aluko won't be signing for Rangers as he is set on going back to England, he's wanted by Southend and Bristol City also a team outside of Europe are showing an interest. Gary Kenneth is wanted by a couple of English clubs, Blackpool have made a bid and expect an answer before the weekend.

Goodwillie may well end up at Rangers if Utd accept the money on offer from Rangers who will not go above the £1.5m. Conway WILL join M/boro before the end of July.

Aberdeen are considering a £200k bid from Hearts for Darren Mackie who has been told he doesn't feature in the managers plans.

Doncaster Rovers will add to the signed of Billy Sharp by signing Simon Gilett from Southampton (he was on loan at the keepmoat stadium for part of last season). 3 loan signings will arrive also they are:

Jay Emanuel–Thomas (Arsenal, loan last season)

Kyle Bartley (Arsenal)

Mark Randall (Arsenal)

Arsene Wenger likes sending his youngsters to doncaster rovers because they play 'propper' football like arsenal and they are at a good standard of football.

Liverpool are set to buy Wayne bridge and nedum onuoha for a combined fee of £10 million. iam guessing bridge would start instead of insua and onuoha will provide back up for Johnson

Joe Cole is set to sign on a free

Surprisingly Joe ledley has been linked, personally i wouldn't mind him.
that's all i have for Liverpool

i also have some everton news (oh btw to the guy that said that everton get 15–20 million a season aha haha, bill kenwright is the most tightfisted stingey owner in the premier league! everton get a set budget of 5–8 million plus what ever moyes can make from sales, hence the reason of a high asking price for yakubu)

Anyway center mid Michael Johnson, (not Adam Johnson the left winger) has been lined up by moyes for a loan move, with a view to a 6 million permanent move.

Ryan Taylor is also being lined up for a move to goodison park

Ben arfa won't be signing,

however Donovan will be back January 2011
will be back when i get more news

Iker Casilles on his way to man united for 35.5 million pounds and Pepe Reina on his way Inter Milan for 13.5 million pounds after Reina not agreeing with the dismissal of Benitez. This leaves the space open for Jose Mourinho to buy his former keeper Julio Cesar from Inter Milan for a reported 21 milion pounds


WHAT AN IDIOT IF CASSILES IS WORTH 35+ THEN SO IS REINA ESP AS HE HAS 4 OR 5 YRS LEFT ON CONTRACT AS FAR AS I KNOW.

Any Aston Villa news Ed? heard all these rumours about the likes of Keane, Rodallega, Eduardo and now even Eduardo can you confirm anything happening?
Also heard recently about Wickham and Bostock and i ca see these happening as there both young and english so you heard anything on that one?
Finally there was a post earlier about Berbatov, seems a bit too expensive if you ask me but anything you heard about that?
Greg–AVFC {editor's note – Keane is very likely, both sides are keen on the move, just depends on if he gets a better offer before he puts pen to paper. Rodallega is O'Neill's first choice to replace whichever of Heskey and Carew goes, probably Carew for some unknown reason. I have heard nothing but the rumour on here about Berbatov to Villa, other than United have invited offers for him. Wickham has been to look around a number of Premier League clubs now, I have no idea if he has just looked out of courtesy or if he has any real interest in a move. But I have heard he is looking to stay at Ipswich next year, though that could be as a loan move back for the season. Bostock is likely to leave Spurs this summer, he has been a bit of a disappointment by all accounts, can't see him moving to Villa, when was the last time MON signed a youth prospect that wasn't a first team regular? I can't remember him taking a chance on a signing like that myself.}

Any update on Gary Cahill coming to united. I Think this would be a great signing. We badly need cover at centre back. Ferdinand is now a liability with his constant injuries n brown evans oshea havn covered themselves in glory in that role. brown n oshea far better at RB.

Also any truth to the sneijder rumour? Pls Pls Pls say Yes
Would also like see barrera the mexican winger, ozil n either benzema r fabiano plus akinfeev in jan.

to fund this we shud get rid of berb, carrick n andreson.

Please correct me if im wrong but don't clubs need permission to speak to other clubs contracted players?? hence how all these rumours about gill, abramovich etc..flying to south africa to speak to sniejder, torres and every other tom, dick and harry can have no truth in what so ever as i can hardly see clubs giving these guys permission to speak to their top players.

Lfc lining up 12.5mill bid for fc twente and cost rica international bryan ruiz

 

06 Jul 2010 18:52:01
Having a wee look at the rumours surrounding Man Utd on here and have a few thoughts:

Casillas – No Way this will happen. 35.5m is not good value for money here and we all know fergie is a stickler for good value. Would be a monumental contract to prize him away from Real too. Akinfeev is alot more likely and a deal will be struck for Jan or summer 2011 if not done already

Fabiano – Nope. end off. not worth 30mill.

Sneijder – To be honest i never really saw this as realistic but it seems to be gathering momentum and it makes sense. 25–30mil is good value as he still has 8 years of top flight left in him and scholes HAS to be replaced with quality. If there is only one player brought in this summer i can see it being him. Depends on Inter and if he can be persuaded to come to OT.

Sanchez – Priced out of a move to OT. Udinese are having a laugh with hteir valuation of 30mil.

Cahill – Why? unless Vidic goes then no need. Smalling is quality

cheers – Stuey

 

06 Jul 2010 18:15:40
Editor –have u got any news on the arsenal goalkeeper situation?? becuase even if we did have a deal in place for schwarzer were being linked with a new gk virtually every day {editor's note – until a new manager is in place no deal for Schwarzer can be done, and who knows what a new manager will think? So Wenger is being prepared by starting negotiations for his next choices just in case. If a deal can be done swiftly I would expect it to just be done rather than waiting on Schwarzer anyway. Gives the defence some pre–season time with the new guy to bed in and get used to each other.}

To this plonker Iker Casilles on his way to man united for 35.5 million pounds and Pepe Reina on his way Inter Milan for 13.5 million pounds after Reina not agreeing with the dismissal of Benitez. This leaves the space open for Jose Mourinho to buy his former keeper Julio Cesar from Inter Milan for a reported 21 milion pounds

Please please please at least do a little research before making up your lies. Asenal have already had a 13 million pound bid for Reina rejected no second bid was made to to the fact he is not for sale even 20 million may not be enough. Please think about it before posting.

P.s. The reason Wenger is tight lipped is purely because he does not want to enter an over inflated market there may only be two (Both under 10 million) IN one OUT till Jan.

06 Jul 2010 18:19:10
PNE to sign Robert Koren within the week. Fabio will sign on loan from Man Utd as Darren Ferguson wants a left back with plenty of pace. Aaron Mclean and Federico Macheda (loan) will also sign in the next couple of weeks.

 

06 Jul 2010 18:20:20
I live about 100 yards away from Melwood and seen what looked like Ashley Young stepping out of a white BMW into the reception doors. Would be a good signing in my opinion. Also seen Shelvey and Pacheco training with first team yesterday.

I only post actual facts on here and i can confirm that Niell Collins will sign for leeds, terms agreed for a three year contract, in my opinion this is a good buy as we have a defence that always looks fragile when the opposition attacks, also heard that Lloyd Sam is in talks with the club over a 2 year deal but i am not confirming anything, this is just a rumour at this point.

Argyle fan who said Akos buzsaky returning to plymouth because he still loves the club, sorry mate you are way off the mark, last time buzsaky attended an argyle match was as a supporter at the madejski vs reading, when akos was at QPR, he was in with 4,000 argyle fans when he was attacked by a group of prats, unhappy at how he left, 30 suspects were identified and footage of akos being pelted with objects was released to the press, so for some contrary reason i don't think mr buzsaky although a great argyle player will return in a hurry. Scott sinclair though might be another kettle of fish, he was part of our fa cup run, where the atmospheres in home park would make any player want to return.Any pompey rumours genuine.

Ed do u no of some clause put in guissepe rossi contract when man u sold him about him being able to return and anything on akinfeev {editor's note – Rossi has a buyback clause in his contract, it just sets the fee that United would have to pay for him, though he would still have to agree to return. There is also a possibility that the clause has an expiry date on it, though I don't know about that, maybe someone else could tell me? All I know about Akinfeev is that he is a quality keeper with a year and half on his contract, there were a lot of stories it expires this December around but I believe it is actually next December. There were also stories that he had signed a contract extension but I think they were denied if I remember rightly. Hopefully if I am wrong on either point someone will point it out for me.}

NORWICH CITY NEWS:

Norwich City will sign Marlon Harewood on a two year deal on Thursday, Harewood will have a medical on wednesday, Harewood has been training with Norwich since the end of last week, well done Paul Lambert

 

06 Jul 2010 17:45:49
The positions arsene wenger should strengthen:
GK: Szczesny will be loaned out to a club most likely at championship level, and Mannone is not yet ready. Almunia and Fabianski have both failed to inspire confidence. Options:
Schwarzer: ageing, but vastly experienced. starting to make errors.
Eduardo: had an impressive world cup, available for £3.4m and experienced at 27.
Manuel Neuer: very competent confident young keeper, but will be very expensive and would block Szczesny and Mannone.

CB: Senderos is gone, Gallas and Silvestre are definitely leaving, and doubts persist over Campbell. Vermaelen and Djourou remain the only assured defenders. Koscielny looks set to come in, but we may need another CB. Options:
Mertesacker: collosus at the back, huge experience, reliable. not the greatest movement.
Tasci: young German who could make the grade, but better options are available.
Diakhate: tough tackler, ready for the physical side of the league, reliable, but can we do better?
Kjaer: proved his skill in the world cup with tough, accurate tackling, impressive distribution and a good turn of pace. young and hungry.
Subotic: big guy, good tackler, but may prove too expensive.
Richards: ready to leave city, Wenger could be the guy to rejuvenate his career, but other clubs are also interested.

DCM/CM: Song is the only recognised DCM, Diaby and Denilson are too offensive–minded. Eastmond is too inexperienced. Options:
Melo: plenty of skill, determination and a good footballing brain, but concerns over discipline.
Khedira: has had an enormous WC, extremely confident, a good physical presence. could also play CB if required, therefore versatile.
Inler: long term target, average.
M Diarra: not needed by Madrid, a good cover signing.
de Jong: looks set to leave city, exactlt the kinfd of player we need.
AM: If Fabregas leaves, it will leave a massive whole in midfield. Nasri could plug it, but id rather they buy someone. Options:
Cole: free agent, competent and skilful, but a poor injury record and astronomical wage demands.
özil: watch the WC and you'll see how good he is.
Gourcuff: great vision, physically ready, scores goals, makes goals, tackles well. £21.8m buyout.
Ireland: unwanted at MCFC, a class act, would be a bargain.

To whoever wrote:

'Iker Casilles on his way to man united for 35.5 million pounds and Pepe Reina on his way Inter Milan for 13.5 million pounds after Reina not agreeing with the dismissal of Benitez. This leaves the space open for Jose Mourinho to buy his former keeper Julio Cesar from Inter Milan for a reported 21 milion pounds'

Get real – Reina has already publicly stated he has no intention of leaving – He was the first Liverpool player to state this on the official web site and, even if he did leave – for £13.5m? – If Casilles is worth £35.5m, he is worth £35.4m and certainly more than Cesar – Quite possibly the most consistant keeper in world football at the moment and will soon be Spains number one!

Benjani in talks with wolves and west ham over a possible move

 

06 Jul 2010 17:48:07
––––––fox––––––––

Arteta will not be leaving 100%, he will sign a 4 year deal when he returns. Pienaar will be offered £55k a week take it or leave it deal.

Donovan will sign a permanent deal at goodison fee approx £8m. Ben Arfa deal is held up over add ons Everton will haggle over £50!!

Under no pressure to sell, the belief from goodison is this is the best chance to break into the top 4 while liverpool are struggling. Moyes knows if they don't win silverware or break into the top 4 in the next 2–3 years Rodwell, Jags, Felliani will want to go and he knows he'll get top dollar for these players so that's why they are going to spend approx £12–15m beyond their means this year because he believes this squad can compete with teams chasing top 4.

Yobo will be sold ONLY if they get good money £7m only sold because of his high wages. Onouha is seriously being looked at wages approx £25k.

Does anyone know which companies are involved with the stadium construction and planning? If someone can give me the names I will get in contact with them direct and see if they can give me details. As for signings, all I have got is that they have offered trials to a whole bunch of youngsters released from Premier and Championship clubs and are also in talks with a few free agents, well the agents of the free agents I should say. But I can't find out any news on signings for money inside the Football League.}

What do you think ed? editor's note – I can't see Fergie buying another centre back, you have Evans, Smalling, Brown, O'Shea, Rio, Vidic and I am sure I am missing a couple, who can all play there.}

Agreed ed. I don't see another defender coming in unless we sell either rio or vidic and if we do sign nini i can see him mainly operating in a 3 man central midfield. If fergie plays 2 in the middle then it will be fletcher and one of carrick, hargreaves, scholes or anderson. My personal opinion..atleast until ninis adapts to the physical nature of the EPL

this has to be one of the funniest rumours i have ever heard, just shows the extent the disilousional newcastle fans really are! expect the biggest signings newcastle make to be the likes of Benjani who costs nothing, just like the amount of money newcastle have to spend..good luck with robinhos wages!

Just a few things about reina which are on the Liverpool site today

Upon signing, he said: "It's probably the best news of my life that I'll be here for the next six years. Me and my family
are really happy here.

"To play for Liverpool is very special. My kids enjoy it and they have picked up the Scouse accent already. I am really
proud of that. In the years ahead they will speak much more Scouse too."

A month later fans voted Reina our Player of the Season for 2009–10.

Quote

"For me he's now the best 'keeper in the world. In Spain everyone knows he's a very good 'keeper and in England there is
no doubt he is the best. We must be really happy to have him in the team and hopefully he'll be here for a long time. Pepe
is one of the most important players in the dressing room."
Fernando Torres on his teammate in January 2010.

Mueller is £22,000,000
Sergio Aguero is £40,000,000
Fernando Torres is £50,000,000
ED which ones are more likely? {editor's note – the most likely is Cole leaving and Aguero signing. I doubt there is much, if any, chance of Chelsea getting any of the others. Though I don't really see much chance of Cole leaving either to be honest. Oezil would have to be the most likely of the rest, he is in the last year of his contract and looking for a move. I was told it was not likely to happen before the World Cup because it was Ballack that had been recommending him, mind, after the way he has been playing, you can't imagine them not wanting him now!}

Southampton have flexed their financial muscles to sign Frazer Richardson from League One rivals Charlton, the high rated right–back joins the club for an undisclosed fee.

Richardson said the money offered to Charlton was "An offer the couldn't refuse", all the money has been paid up front which is better for Charlton as it allows them to help their immediate money problems.

Richardson who was in the team of the year last season said he was looking forward to the challenge of helping get the club promoted.

Still lots of fans making long lists of players Wenger will be signing, when he stated that he will sign 2 or 3 players, if available. This may extend to one more if Fab departs. So far he has signed Chamakh & by all accounts Koscielny, which leaves one, may be two signings. If rumours are to be believed it will be a goalkeeper & a replacement for Fab if necessary. With Schwarzer & Joe Cole the likely candidates.

LUFC Rumours _


Firstly, the only palyers leaving LUFC will be SHEEAN KANDOL ROBINSON as SG has already stated that these players will not fit into his future plans (SNODGRASS will not be going so dream on forest fans). Secondly, these are the players that might be coming into LUFC:

Gary HOOPER (done within one week)
Lloyd SAM (done within one week)
Darrell RUSSELL (done within one week)
James McCARTHUR (this rumour seems to have died down but i don't know why as he is a player who SNODGRASS was trying to bring to the club and is way better then most over CM's we could afford)

Also, we will bring in a centre back of championship standard who is maybe 30+ just for until we get promoted. However, SG is always talking about young talent so Tom LEES might step up to the mark after his successful loan spell at accrington.
Finally, LEEDS will undoubtubly bring in some loan players from clubs like chelsea, villa, liverpool and spurs.

Local rumours from agents AND FRIENDS

HULL . Hoping for Boateng move to ease wage bill and get rid of someone who fell out with many at club. Giovanni likely for Turkey – 2 clubs in for him.
Cousin – available at 2million or loan. Bullard – no sale so loan deal on cards.

Boateng isn't on Hull's wage bill, he's out of contract and didn't fall out with anyone other than Phil Brown(along with half the rest of the squad). Geovanni has already left and is also available on a free. Cousin will not command a £2m fee, he'd be allowed to leave for nothing if anyone came in for him and Bullard is in Scotland for talks re a loan move to Celtic.

Apart from that, you were bang on !

 

06 Jul 2010 16:24:39
CELTIC NEWS – Totenham want a cash only, no installments deal for Robbie keane. This is the reason why Lennon has spent none of his estimated £5–7M transfer budget and is going for the cheap option, i.e Mullgrew instead of Wallace from Hearts and Ledley instead of Bullard (right choice if you ask me). Lennon is waiting for Spurs to make their move for a striker before putting a bid in for Keane, this one all hinges on whether the player wants to return north but Neil is optimistic about this one. Liam Lawrence signing should be completed as soon as Celtic receive the £2M or so from Mcmanus to Boro deal, my guess is announcement this Friday or Monday. McGeady will leave, Celtic already looking at Barrera of Pumas, reportedly a £5M target for West Ham although his agent is quoted as saying he has a buy out clause in his contract of $5M, roughly £2.8M. The fact he and his agent have already been at parkhead this week makes me think that the McGeady deal to an EPL side is all but done. Not a bad bit of business if we are able to replace him with Lawrence and Barrera, 2 proven international players. From what I've heard Boaetang hasn't impressed much although the boy from Montenegro may be one for the future. Its a case of wait and see for Campbell and Ledley, expect Ledleys decision by Thursday though. Celtic are also working hard on a loan deal for Bellamy or permanent if Keane rejects, although Celtic will have to free up wages by gettting rid of Samaras, Hinkel, Crosas and Boruc, not as impossible as some may think considering we have let N'Guemo, Kamara and Brafield leave who were on a decent salary during their loan spells.

To the guy who said clubs had to name a squad of 25:

Ed you are right mate. The new rules are as follows:

The new rules, agreed by all Premier League club chairmen, state that clubs must name a squad of UP TO 25 players, with 8 of those being 'home–grown' players. Furthermore, no more than 17 of those players can be over 21 and not home–grown.

Germanys Klose could sign for chelsea within the next couple of weeks, if they fail to get there man fernando torres from liverpool for 50 million. reliable source, you just wait and see ! Tait–sufc"

I highly doubt it, Chelsea are known to be cutting down on their older players and intending to inject some youth into the squad – a 32 year old striker hardly fits the bill, no matter how impressive a WC he's having.

Walsall Rumours..

Some strong reports coming from the Walsall camp is that they are about to sign Gavin Mahon from QPR. He was born is Birmingham so he is a local chap. A tough tackling midfielder, although 33, he could be the 'leader' we are looking for.

Julian Gray will re–sign for Walsall on a two year deal after turning down Swindon and Watford.

Adebayo Akinfenwa will sign from Northampton on a two year deal.

With the signing of Akinfenwa Troy Deeney will be sold to Middlesbrough for £350,000.

This isn't a rumour, it is 100% a fact! The bookies have slashed the odds dramatically on Joe Cole signing for liverpool in the last 24 hours, and right this minute Coles representitives are in Liverpool talking with Liverpool's representitives about a possible move. Joe Cole could well be on his way to Anfield VERY soon. This will also keep the likes of Gerrard and Torres at the club, by seeing a big star name coming in.(Source) Radio channel. Also two players pretty much 100% coming in are Steven Taylor and Gilberto Silva.

Editor – do you have any information or opinion on Joe Cole. Various waves are working their way around Merseyside today stating that he will favour Liverpool in a £80,000 p/w 5 year deal. Any truth do you think?

Thanks,

Karl. {editor's note – I really don't know mate, all I know is there is an offer on the table, I just hope it is not good enough because I don't rate him.}

Okay i was just wondering how Arsene Wenger rates "Super Mario". It's just goal is reporting that Inter are ready to offer him in excgange for Fabregas. This is almost definately bull but i was wondering what you think Editor.

Hypotetically what sort of deal do you think Wenger would accept? {editor's note – Balotelli does have a few off field problems and suffers a degree of racial abuse from Inter fans, I am surprised he has stayed at Inter this long. But I doubt very much he will be being offered in exchange for Fabregas, it makes no sense whatsoever.}

It's clearly that campbell, silvestre and gallas will leave, also eduardo and almunia will leave, so.
You're talking bullst, because arsenal can buy who they want, this "fact" is not only a fact for arsenal it's also a fact for your team, the spurs. I think that they have more players over 21 than us!! Isn't it ED?? {editor's note – I haven't a clue mate, sorry, I have been trying to get the time to go through the club's squads and sort out all their home grown statuses etc to post up on the site so everyone can see for themselves. But I just haven't had the time yet, it has just been so busy on here, but I hope to get it done this week.}

I AM NOT A SPURS FAN OR BITTER TOWARDS ARSENAL IN ANY WAY. WHAT I TOLD YOU WAS NOT TO WIND YOU ARSENAL FANS UP I WAS GIVING YOU SOME INFO, I HAVE ALREADY TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION THAT GALLAS, ALMUNIA AND SILVESTRE WILL LEAVE, ELSE YOU WOULD HAVE 24 PLAYERS OVER 21 AND NOT THE 21 PLAYERS OVER 21 THAT I FIRST STATED.

SERIOUSLY MATE CHILL I'M JUST INTERESTED THAT'S ALL, AREN'T YOU?

Accordng to Koptalk Joe Cole having talks with Liverpool over a possible move. Any truth in this Editor?

Also on the site is info about Hodgson following up Benitez' interest in Arda Turan. Thoughts?? {editor's note – the Joe Cole story is from Jamie Redknapp on Sky Sports, they interviewed him and he said Liverpool were in talks with him. I know Cole has been given an offer, I don't know if he is considering it or not. I don't believe Rafa ever had any real interest in Turan or he would have been signed by now, he is desperate for the move to happen.}

William Gallas – Free – AC Milan Most Likely
Sol Campbell – Free (Celtic)
Lukasz Fabianski
Eduardo – Heard Liverpool Rumors
Tomas Rosicky
Philippe Senderos – 5mil (Fulham) Done
Fran Mérida – Free (Atlético Madrid) Done


Terrible "rumours" (I say rumours because clearly you have no sources).

You think we might sign 2 keepers? Never.
Senderos for £5m? He was a free transfer.
Eduardo to Liverpool hasn't been in the papers like the rest of your hot gossip so I don't know where you made that one up from.
Honda and Mertesacker aren't likely to leave their clubs, though CSKA could be tempted to sell given a good price. Joe Cole is heading to Spurs I reckon.

Add to the fact, Arsene won't ever buy that many players, you've got yourself a dud list.

someone cheer me up!

DM23

ignore Dazbhoy the real reason is that they need players more than we do !

we won't make any signings (unless free) at the moment mate. I reckon Wattie will wait til celtic have made their moves in the market before he goes for his targets (unless other teams are bidding for the same target) I reckon we will sign a striker (Goodwillie or Nugent) another CB after Boughie and Wilson are sold maybe a winger if we can spare the cash not much more than that tho i think.

Ollie will not go for the likes of the above and your starting line up is a joke. We will be signing younger players for a lot less than you quoted, plus the odd one with some Prem experience. Also he will stick with a lot of the squad that got us promoted.

We are not going to waste our money like a lot have done before. {editor's note – from what I can tell Holloway is only looking to add 2 or 3 players.}

The squad is pretty thin think they only have 16–17 players and need 25+ for the premiership! {editor's note – you don't have to have 25 players at all, the maximum number of players a team is allowed to have in their squad is 25 over the age of 21.}


Ed I think you have it wrong there. There is likely to be at least 6 coming in this month. It's probable that at least 3 will go through the formalities July 8 when the players and Holly show up in Blackpool. And be surprised at the quakity given the money available, and that these players will 'fit' into the way Pool play. {editor's note – I think you need 6 players at least, but the way Holloway is talking I am not expecting that many to arrive. Do you think Geovanni would be a player of interest?}

Absolutely disgusted that Celtic are looking at Boateng!
He didn't want to sign for Strachan 3 years ago and his shenanigans at Hull should mark his card.
We are supposed to be improving the team so I hope we unveil a lot better than Boateng in the next week.
Obviously there are a lot of dealings and discussions going on and I hope we manage a couple of top class acquisitions as we start pre–season.
By the way, talking of Strachan, he is haggling over McManus but refuses to include Scott McDonald as part of any deal and was also trying to hi–jack the Celtic bid for Hooper. (Although signing Boyd may change this?).
No love lost there then.

To Ed, where are these joe ledley to liverpool rumours coming from he played for cardiff for his entire career (correct me if im wrong) and is definately not liverpool quality so what is going on with this rumour?

Staying with liverpool there are also Steven Taylor rumours doing the rounds which I can't see happening either as we have carra, skrt and agger who are all superior defenders to him so the question is does anyone really know who we will sign? NO

My opinion is we will have the same squad as last years minus a few fringe players and expired contracts (aurelio, itandje etc) and no major signings unless one of our top players are sold. {editor's note – Ramsey played for Cardiff all his career before signing for Arsenal but he was good enough. I haven't seen enough of Ramsey to judge him but I am sure he must be a decent player. Though I am not sure if there is anything in the story at all, it might just be a case of him being free so papers are linking him.}

To the clown that said this:

Ian Holloway to be unveiled as Fulham FC manager tomorrow morning.

Holloway is out of contract at Blackpool FC so no compensation would be required to be paid to the Bloomfield Road club.

It is believed that Fulham owner Al Fayed has flown out to meet Holloway who is currently holidaying with family.

A: No he won't he has said he won't leave the club
B: He is set to sign a 3 year deal on £500,000 a year.
C: Al Fayed drive to Bath? Because that is where Ollie is at the moment, and is due back in Blackpool in the next couple of days.

Editor – don't suppose you have any knowledge of even the faintest whisper of transfer activity at Tranmere? You're Merseyside connections seem to be pretty good! Will we be getting Andy Robinson from Leeds? Any idea which striker's agent the manager's been talking to? Anything at all?!?! {editor's note – not much to be honest, I heard they are eyeing up a lad from Leeds, not sure who it is but I am sure that one of the Leeds fans on here will know. Also after some of the free agents on the market, Aljofree was one I was told they were chasing and, or so I was told anyway, Salif Diao's agent offered the player to the club. He must like being in the area if that is really true. One other possibility might be of interest to you, I heard Liverpool want to send out a couple of youngsters on loan to you, close enough they can be watched easily and go back to train at Melwood one day a week.}

Local rumours from agents AND FRIENDS

DONCASTER. Sharp and Gillett unveiled on Wed afternoon with Andy Keogh if clubs agree price.More good news for Rovers fans – season ticket sales well up on last year.

HULL . Hoping for Boateng move to ease wage bill and get rid of someone who fell out with many at club. Giovanni likely for Turkey – 2 clubs in for him.
Cousin – available at 2million or loan. Bullard – no sale so loan deal on cards.

Celtic. Mc fADDEN PLUS Cash if ONEILL agrees to Celtics valuation for Mc Geady

RANGERS. Impossible to get info – all their enquiries are secret squirrel. Miller from boro at £500000 might fill their bill if Goodwillie and Conway deals are dead.

I'm a leeds fan and have contacts within ER as had a box there for years..

Rumours Out:

Snoddy – going nowhere! Dream on Forest fans
Kilkenny – staying put
Robinson – looking at getting a Championship club but more realistic it will be a Lg1 club
Kandol – Millwall apparently looking into him

Rumours In:

Hooper – more or less agreed on fee, has told Scthorpe he wants to leave.

Sam – will be done by weekend

Riggott – agent has been seen around ER but source was unreliable

Russell – another one to be done by weekend supposedly.

Butt – although released from NUFC, will not be joining Leeds. SG doesn't rate him.

Akinfenwa – has been spotted at Thorpe Arch apparently completing medical but source unreliable.

Jay Spearing – apparently considering a season long loan. Agent been spotted in ER speaking to SH.

Lets hope we sign Hooper, Sam, Russell and Spearing I say!

Can these lazy journalist's stop writing "Figueroa to Liverpool" its not gonna happen.
Liverpool already have Insua; who is quite frankly better than Figueroa.
Also Figueroa is 27 and is not going to improve an awful lot whereas Insua is still only 21 with bag loads of talent and potential, and in about 1 year or 2 he will no doubt be a starter in the Argentinian team. [Replacing Heinze]
So Liverpool will not sign Figueroa!!
But i do expect Liverpool to sign an experienced Left Back, Maybe: Bridge, Abidal, Riise,
My bets are on bridge but maybe a shock return for Riise. Maybe his brother would give a good word for him due to Hodgson signing him last year. I'm sure every Liverpool fan would love to see him at Anfield again and maybe retire, then Insua will be established. And another 40 yarder and top corner would be good!

HEEEEEEEYYYYY JOHN ARNE RIISE
OOOOH AAHHHHHHH
I WANNA KNOOOOWWWW HOW U SCORED THAT GOAL

Quick question – now that England are out of the WC, what has happened to all these people who were 100% sure Cole had already signed a contract and was just waiting until England were no longer involved to announce it? "FACT" "100%" "He's already signed for Arsenal/Spurs/Utd!" etc. Oh and this is just a general quibble, but could all the people saying "i told you months ago that.." put a name to their posts as otherwise there is no way of telling who you are and therefore what you said.

To the person who said:
Steven Taylor to Liverpool, which explains Newcastle signing James Perch.

This is wrong. Perch was bought to cover the full backs and the central defence not replace exisiting players in those positions, Taylor only wants to play for NUFC and will sign a new contract before the end of the transfer window.

EBOUE, NASRI, DIABY, RVP CANNOT EVER BE HOMEGROWN, AND THE REST WILL NOT TURN HOMEGROWN UNTIL THEY TURN 19. THEY HAVE TO HAVE TRAINED BETWEEN THE AGES OF 16–21, IF THE PLAYERS ARE 17 OR 18 THEN THAT IS NOT THREE YEARS SINCE 16 IS IT?

Cannot see them players leaving most have just signed terms and the named playes have been at arsenal since there teens i checked all out on Arsenal.com all the players are classes as home grown check it out they don't have to be british and RVP was in the squad b4 CESC unless i wrong the players in the youth alot have been there since 2003 so so at 19 this will be the third season finished i checked every playerf on arsenal.com and the the players signed from 2001/2008 even at july 08 would that not be season 08/09/09/10/10/11 so for the new rule would these players not count? ED ive im wrong could you explain and if im wrong sorry must of misunderstood the new rule

CHRIS! {editor's note – I think it is years from their signing date rather than seasons. If someone signed in August 2008, they would not be classed as homegrown until August 2011.}

THAT'S RIGHT ED, HALF OF HIS LIST OF YOUNGSTERS ARE JUST 17 AND 18 YEARS OLD, ITS NOT UNTIL THEY TURN 19 THAT THEY WILL BE HOMEGROWN AS THEY MUST TRAIN FOR 3 YEARS SINCE THE AGE OF 16.
VAN PERSIE, NASRI, DIABY AND EBOUE CAN NEVER BE HOMEGROWN AS THEY WERE NOT AT ARSENAL BETWEEN THE AGES OF 16 & 21, A PLAYER MUST DO THREE WHOLE YEARS AT THE CLUB BEFORE HE TURNS 21. FOR EXAMPLE CESC IS HOMEGROWN BECAUSE HE WAS AT ARSENAL BETWEEN THE AGES OF 16–21, BASICALLY YOU HAVE TO HAVE BEEN AT THE CLUB FOR THREE YEARS BEFORE YOUR 21ST BIRTHDAY. ITS A BIT COMPLICATED CHRIS BUT PEOPLE WILL GET THE HANG OF IT SOON ENOUGH.

"....Wenger tried to speak with Robiniho in SA@WC but Robiniho wasn't interested and wanted to concentrate on the game against Holland. Wenger didn't stick around after he got the brush off and this is now the 2nd time Wenger has tried to "approach" Robiniho, before when he was at Santos and now. I do not think he will be going back to try to sign him again, Wenger has morals!"

Not enough morals to stop him trying to tap up another side's player though? Sharkey.

Ed, Anything On West Ham, Ingoings And Outgoings? The Owners Seem To Be Very Quiet {editor's note – things are fairly quiet because Avram Grant is assessing the squad, the only moves that are being made are for players the owners feel will put bums on seats and sell shirts until Grant has made his priorities known. Joe Cole has got an offer to think over, I hear it is a serious offer too, the owners reckon his presence alone will guarantee a full house for every home game and sell thousands of shirts, so they have pushed the boat out in terms of bonuses and add ons. I don't know if Cole is even considering a return though.}

Starting Line–Up:
Taylor, Eardley, Nosworthy, Edwards, Queudrue, Halford, Faye, Adam (c), Halmosi, Harewood, Cousin.

Ollie will not go for the likes of the above and your starting line up is a joke. We will be signing younger players for a lot less than you quoted, plus the odd one with some Prem experience. Also he will stick with a lot of the squad that got us promoted.

We are not going to waste our money like a lot have done before. {editor's note – from what I can tell Holloway is only looking to add 2 or 3 players.}

The squad is pretty thin think they only have 16–17 players and need 25+ for the premiership! {editor's note – you don't have to have 25 players at all, the maximum number of players a team is allowed to have in their squad is 25 over the age of 21.}

Koscielny and One other with Campbell staying

Options

1. Rafik Halliche – Good Algerian CB Age 23

2. David Luiz – Benfica, looked at by City and Chelsea. Expensive but Arsenal have quite a large budget and with Fabregas sale could have up to 75 million on transfers. Also 23.

3. Jagielka – Think we can do better

4. Toby Alderweireld – Ajax

5. Jan Vertonghen – Ajax had a good partnership with Vermaelen at Ajax

Sneijder tops United list
Alex Ferguson wants Holland's World Cup hero Wesley Sneijder to spearhead next season's bid for glory. But it could cost Manchester United £35million to prise the Dutchman away from Inter Milan. Fergie is desperate to find an attacking midfielder in the Paul Scholes mould. And although the United boss does not have a huge transfer kitty he sees Sneijder as the ideal player to sit in the 'hole' behind striker Wayne Rooney. Sneijder, 26, only moved to the San Siro from Real Madrid in a £13m switch a year ago. The 5ft 7in star helped win Serie A, the Italian Cup and the Champions League under Jose Mourinho – and has now scored four goals to lead Holland's march to the World Cup semi–finals.

Any more news/rumours on utd signing Ninis ? He has miles more potential than half the midfield players recently linked.

 

06 Jul 2010 11:45:58
Right OK, I have not posted this yet because I didn't believe it myself until my friend actually gave me some proof! And he did, he showed me the email directly. My friend works as an investment trader in the City (London) and he works in a smallish close knit team. His current boss is very good friends with the ex arsenal Director and Club negotiator before he was "pushed" from the role (you can figure out who yourselves).

He has told my friend's boss a couple of "tips" for players Wenger is looking at. Now I must point out that this contact no longer works for Arsenal but he has PLENTY of contacts within Arsenal and the surrounding PR and player management teams so he must know a lot more than most.

The most interesting piece of news he gave him was that Wenger tried to speak with Robiniho in SA@WC but Robiniho wasn't interested and wanted to concentrate on the game against Holland. Wenger didn't stick around after he got the brush off and this is now the 2nd time Wenger has tried to "approach" Robiniho, before when he was at Santos and now. I do not think he will be going back to try to sign him again, Wenger has morals!

The Swartzer deal is pretty much done, so there is no point speculating about Keepers. Joe Hart was the only other Goalkeeper Wenger was interested in after being extremely impressed with how he handled the premiership last season. Wenger knows he would of been a very good investment. I have to guess that with Swartzer coming in Wenger is putting his faith in Mannone and Szczesny.

In defence Laurent Koscielny is a certainty based on his medical and small contract terms. Arsenal tend to like basing their contracts on small hypothetical's (i.e. Add–ons) which is why negotiating always takes a lot longer. Like paying for goods with cash, simple you walk out. Buy it on credit and you have to fill in loads of forms and agree an interest fee blah blah! The other names Wenger has given to Gazidis and his team are to negotiate for are:

Jagielka (if the fee is sub £15mil)
Chilleini (if the fee is sub £15mil)
Subotic (if the fee is sub £15mil)
Mertesacker (is the fee is sub £12)
Diakhate (if the fee is sub £10mil)
Kompany (if the fee is sub £10mil)
Phil Jones (if the fee is sub £7mil)
Joseph Yobo (if the fee is sub £5 mil)
Gary Cahill (if the fee is sub £10mil with the option of one youth player on loan)
Wenger does not want to give up Wilshere with the Ramsey injury and he wants to see how he plays in the Emirates cup. I would expect this deal to be stretched out until then or I would expect to see Vela in a Bolton shirt next season on loan.

One of the above will be signed apparently but the emails didn't hint at who or how far they were into negotiating with any of the players. The source told us that Koscielny is being signed as a back up to Vermarlen more than an automatic starter because he is a left footer, but he also is extremely comfortable with his right foot so Wenger will have no problems playing him with Vermarlen. I would expect Djourou to step up as the right sided defender with one of the above listed as 1st choice.

After this, Wenger's team are interested in Annan as a cheap back up to Song but are also still interested in Melo (despite the red card), Inler and Javi Martinez.
Wenger's replacement for Fran Merida will be Christian Eriksen from Ajax (fee unknown).
If Wenger goes for a Fabregas replacement (and the email didn't mention Fab at all other than this), he will go for Zvjezdan Misimovic. No idea who this guy is or if he is any good but it sounds like a Wenger signing. A simple Google search told me he played in Germany.

If I hear more I will post.

Gunning you down!

Deal for Laurent Koscielny has been concluded and will be announced within the next 3 days (the player has been training with youth team at Colney). Final fee short of the reported £10m though!
Deal for Mark Schwarzer on hold. £3.5m had been agreed, however Fulham will not progress any further until they have made a decision on their new manager. Still expect this to go through though.

Remaining targets for this summer:
Gai Assulin – Free agent having been released by Barcelona. Long admired by Wenger, will face competition from Chelsea. Talk of Man City being interested barely conceivable due to the player being Israeli (we all know what City's Arabic owners think!)

Per Mertesacker, Simon Kjaer or Serdar Tasci to become the replacement for Gallas. Jan Vertonghen a possibility if Arsenal cannot agree a deal with EFC for Jagielka. Wenger wants a player who can cover 2 positions (Djourou is unlikely to be at Arsenal much longer).

Editor or any1 else, do you know if there's any truth in the Wesley Sneijder to Man Utd rumours that are in the papers today?? I think he is a good player but I can't see it happening. I think he may be drasstically over priced because of his world cup and champions league success. What do you think? {editor's note – not at that price I don't. He is the kind of player Rafa likes in his 4–2–3–1 system to play behind a striker, I think Rafa will hold onto him unless the bid is in excess of 30m.}

Ed a genuine rumour for you here, about 40 minutes ago Balotelli's agent has confirmed Man City have made a bid for him, i do not know the amount bid, but one thing we can guarantee is that he is City's next big name signing. Milner, Balotelli, Silva and Toure for around 100m is not bad, although their wages will cost City nearly 600k a week, a massive 32m a year.

How in gods name can they break even? {editor's note – they must have some kind of loophole ready to exploit, I don't know what but it is the only way they can possibly pay the wages.}

10.45 Mario Balotelli's agent has claimed Inter Milan have turned down an offer from Manchester City.


this must be true as the have has been rejected

To the guy that claims he has an office next to Celtic park. I would be very interested to know where it is. I used to have an office accross the street from Celtic park (being a Rangers fan this was crap, but funny over the last two years) The reason I don't have an office anymore is because they have moved everyone out due to the development currently under construction to house the 2014 commonwealth games. On the left hand side of Celtic park it is houses. And on the right there is a local solicitors and a bookies. my company was the last to leave the area (Springfield Road) 3 weeks ago. The closest place you could work in is the industrial estate, which is not next to the the stadium.

Hooper isn't going to Leeds, dream on. On a more realistic note, Paul Tisdale will be named new Swansea manager this week.


Leeds never made a move for Billy Sharp, source Billy Sharp himself,

As for Hooper it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out all the other clubs that were interested have now found alternatives there is only one place Hooper is going and that's the Mighty whites FACT

So continuing with my posts on "actual happenings" at MUFC, heres the latest:
Ins(till now)– Hernandez, Smalling, Virmjil.
Outs(till now)– Foster, Tosic.
Ins(done deals, to be announced arnd 18th July)– Ninis, Cahill & Benzema (Akinfeev to join in January if all goes well)
Outs(to be announced)– Vidic, Anderson, Berbatov, Carrick, Diouf(loan), Welbeck (loan).
Bids to be made for: Ozil and Sneijder (and alternatively for Diego, Kroos, Ireland, Hazard or Pjanic) with only 1 expected to join (almost all are improbable). Defour & Sanchez might also be considered (very less chances though). In all, apart from those signings that have already been confirmed above (including the TBA list), expect 1 or 2 (or even zero) official bids. No moves for Fabiano, Kjaer, Chiellini, Dzeko, Richards, Neuer, Forlan, Suarez, Muller, Joe Cole, Milner, Krasic, Bale, Rodwell.
In other news– MUFC's rivals(yeah, the rich ones) are set to bid for Ibrahimovic, Kolarov and Suarez amongst others. Kjaer is now officially with Wolfsburg. With Maicon on his way to Madrid, expect a lot of offers for Ramos. Chelsea are considering Ozil and Aguero while Kakuta would be formally inducted into the first team(most likely on the bench). Tottenham are in for Carrick and M.Richards; Bale is staying while Rednapp is looking to sign a striker (expect a major arrival). Spurs and Liverpool will fight for VDV. Villa are considering Carrick and McGeady. Milner will only leave for one of the traditional top 4 unless the compensation from City is off the charts. Young's future is undecided bt he might stay. Jagielka is up for grabs as Arsenal n Liverpool are watching keenly. Everton are keeping Rodwell and there is very little probability that Pienaar might move out too. Hazard may be on his way to epl with all the top 4 clubs interested. Jose Mourinho is also looking at Sneijder, Schweinstiger and Ashley Cole. Mascherano will join Inter. Fabiano and Krasic are going to Italy. Gerrard, Torres, Chiellini, Robben, Ribery, Forlan, Neuer, Robinho, Kaka and Lahm are most likely to stay with their respective clubs atleast for one more season.
–NPrak.

Blackpool Rumours:

INS:
Stuart Taylor (Man City–FREE)
Nyron Nosworthy (Sunderland–FREE)
Franck Queudrue (Birmingham–FREE)
Greg Halford (Wolves–£1.3m)
Peter Halmosi (Hull–£650,000)
Amdy Faye (Stoke–FREE)
Marlon Harewood (Aston Villa–FREE)
Daniel Cousin (Hull–£2m)

OUTS:
Billy Clarke (£200,000)
Mark Halstead (LOAN)
Ashley Eastham (LOAN)
Stephen Husband (LOAN)
Louis Almond (LOAN)

Starting Line–Up:
Taylor, Eardley, Nosworthy, Edwards, Queudrue, Halford, Faye, Adam (c), Halmosi, Harewood, Cousin.

Edwards has not had his option taken up on his contract so why would he be centre half? also Billy Clarke is one hell of a talent and somebody who Olly has shown keen interest in so why would he leave and for £200,000? no chance. Queudrue is somebody who will demand too much money and will not get in over Crainey. And don't expect more than 7 new players at bloomers people, Olly has stated he wants to keep the team spirit and give the players who got us to the prem a chance.

 

06 Jul 2010 09:55:18
Ed, can you confirm that Seamus Coleman will be coming back to Blackpool on a season long loan ?? {editor's note – it has not been decided yet mate, depends on who stays and who goes at Everton. But if he does go out on loan Blackpool is more than likely to be his destination.}

– Raul Mierles of FC Porto is going to Chelsea or Arsenal for 16–18M Euros. FC Porto have signed Joao Moutinho from Lisbon as a replacement [11M bargain]

– Despite strong interest from England and Italy, Keisuke Honda is set to remain in Russia for at least another season.

– Manchester United will be offering around 30M Euros for Luis Fabiano of Sevilla.

– Aleksander Kolarov is edging closer to his 16M move to Man City.


Fergie woll not sign Luis Fabiano he is to old and not worth £30M. If he signs another striker it will be somebody under 25 because he is looking at young players he can develop and improve. i.e. Ronaldo was bought for £12M and sold for £80M
Dons nil

Joe cole . trust me no 1 is going to pay over 5.5 mil a year for a benchwarmer . hes going to see has no offer over 80 thou a week and is going to either resign for chelsea (highly unlikely) tottenham (most likely) or west ham (maybe) arsenal (seriously doubt it) liverpool (again doubt it as hes said many times he don't wanna leave london)

kaka' as much as any of you fans of other clubs THINK!/HOPE! hes not . will sign for chelsea for a record 50 mil (somewhere around tht) . dnt say anything about this cos none of you know st . just wait nd see

So editor scott sinclair has been offred to plymouth are you sure? {editor's note – I am not 100% sure, but as sure as I can be as the person who told me has been right every other time he has told me something. Doesn't mean he is signing mind, just that he is likely to be leaving Chelsea as he is being offered about. I guess he hasn't made the progress that was expected, but then he never really got a chance to make a mark in the first team.}

Editor got any manu rumours? {editor's note – nothing new, just the attacking mid and striker rumours. The attacking mid I am sure is the priority, but it does seem that Fergie has decided that Berbatov is not working out and wants to get rid. I would expect that to have cut into the budget for an attacking mid, hence the move for Ninis who is a cheaper option.}

Seriously when will the papers give Torres moving to an English team a rest. People who believe this drivel should not be so naive. The man himself has stated time & time again he won't move to another EPL team, so unless he wants to proved a liar..He won't move! I have faith he is very loyal to Liverpool & won't jump ship. Gary Cahill is being looked at & I can see Woy bringing in a proven striker but he will mainly buy british. Woy will be good for us, wait and see.

Ollie will not go for the likes of the above and your starting line up is a joke. We will be signing younger players for a lot less than you quoted, plus the odd one with some Prem experience. Also he will stick with a lot of the squad that got us promoted.

We are not going to waste our money like a lot have done before. {editor's note – from what I can tell Holloway is only looking to add 2 or 3 players.}

Ed – Fox

Sorry don't mean to question your sources, but just curious, if Everton are indeed looking at bringing in Ben Afra and Donovan, how is it being funded? Everton have very little money, so I can see a potential deal for one but not two? Will it be due to the sale of Pienaar or dare I say it Arteta?

PS Have you heard anything further around their contracts? As a die hard Evertonian I can't stand the thought of Arteta leaving! I saw that in a recent press conference all contract questions were band. {editor's note – that is what I am confused about, I can't understand where the money is coming from for Ben Arfa. My guess, and it is purely a guess, is that the money was expected to come from the sale of Pienaar but now he is looking like staying the finances are holding up the Ben Arfa deal. I don't believe Donovan on a permanent deal is going to happen at all, at least not this year. So I wouldn't be surprised if Arteta is sold to fund a few ins.}

Have heard some LFC Reds talking about Young, Turan and goodness knows who else. Cole maybe. I think to be honest that Roy is just finishing talking to everyone and has started to settle into training with the lads. So any real notion that he already has targets I think is inaccurate.

We have been linked with players in the past like Turan and I would love to see the Galatasaray captain at Melwood, only I fear we have to wait to see what happens with Mascherano. If he goes for 30 million, first we will see a holding mid come in and then perhaps other players.

Early days lads, as with the takeover. 15th July might mean some news but even with this, I fear we will have to be patient.

Man utd to strengthen this summer with Sneijder and Aguero coming in. Berbatov
could be used in the Aguero deal as athletico have shown interest. Carrick will be sold to make room in the squad for Sneijder. Villa spurs and arsenal all looking at Carrick for 12m. The only other player really wanted is Rodwell but with him signing a new deal and everton not wanting to sell could be a large price tag on his head.

Neymar–loan him to west ham after we've bought him
Aguero and maybe a few youngsters, stop living in dream land and get back to reality. Oh, and we will also loan Scott Sinclair to Plymouth and Sam Hutchinson to Norwich.

please say your telling the truth about sinclair coming to argyle.

Yeah i am, i've accually heard from the ED that Scott Sinclair could be a perminant deal.

keane almost a done deal. villa could also see another striker coming. falco or eduardo also on oneills short list. carew and hesk high chance they will both be gone.
arfa or swp also poibilities.
a holding player is also wanted. anderson, veleso and noble have been mentioned

– – – – – – – –

Letting carew go I think would be a bad move as him a keane would work well together but that's not the point. Im a Villa fan myself, and how did you find out the its an almsot done deal. editor care to enlighten us ??

FERGUSON wants Holland's World Cup hero Wesley Sneijder, abt 35mil should be enough to prise the dutchman away from inter.
As for people suggesting UNITED have no money, you all are idiots.We offered £35m for Benzema last summer, we can offer it now for Sneijder.We also bid for david villa though he chose to stay in Spain. David Gill said and then proved on public financial documents that a fund of up to £100m is available for transfers should Sir Alex want them. It seems ludicrous that given United's continued success that they should blow vast sums of money on players they don't need? Just nervous fans creating stupid rumours nothing else

City don't normally turn down any striker! But he is looking for a move to England, Spurs need a striker, it could be a good move all round.}

Hodgson is believed to have around £20m at his disposal after the sale of Benayoun , he has been given the backing of the board to try and sign these 4 lads but will have to sell a few first, Milan Jovanovic and Jonjo Shelvey have already joined and if Hodgson gets his men he will shut up shop and be done for the summer good luck Roy hope you get what or who your looking for.I work in the. {I think these transfers are real possibilities Young is probably the hardest to get but I think Martin O Neill brought in Downing another left winger because there was so much interest in Young last summer and with O Neill keen to keep Milner and raise funds for McGeady and Keane I think there is actually a chance what do you think ed oh and by the way I have heard from a very good source that the Figueroa deal will definitly happen but I don't think he is that good look at the amount of goals Wigan conceeded last year}
{editor's note – to be fair to Figueroa he was playing in a team that was completely changing its style of football. They went for a much more attacking and open brand of football, they were always going to concede more goals.}

Thanks for posting Ed but I realize the format I used didn't come out right from the form to the site, I hope this makes more sense.

So I sat down last night and thought about the realistic transfers of LFC that's doing the rounds and this is what I came up with.
ins–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Outs
Jovanovic Free––––––––––––––––––––––––– Riera 6m
J Cole Free –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Ben A Youn 5.5m
G. Silva 2.5m ––––––––––––––––––––––––––Lucas 9m
Drenthe 6m ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Cavalieri 3m
Wilson 4m ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––El Zahr 3m
Young 20m––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Degen 2m
Aguero 30m ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Ngog 6m
A goalkeeper about 6m ––––––––––––––––Masch 30m
Total: 68.5m–––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Total:64.5m
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––+the supposed 15m
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Total:79.5m
These figures are obviously aprox & what is doing the rounds in the media, so if most of these came off the squad would look something like this;

–––––––––––––––––––––TORRES–––––––––––– AGUERO––––––––––––––––
–––––––––––––––––––––BABEL–––––––––––––– J. COLE–––––––––––––––––

JOVANOVIC–––––––––G. SILVA–––––––––––GERRARD––––––––KUYT
A YOUNG––––––––––––SHELVEY–––––––––––AQUALANI–––––––MAXI

DRENTHE–––––––––––AGGER–––––––––––––CARRAGHER–JOHNSON
INSUA––––––––––––––SKRTEL––––––––––––––WILSON–––––––KELLY––

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––REINER–––––––––––––––––––––––––––
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––GOALKEEPER?––––––––––––––––––––––

Plus say three from the youth, take your pick. But my point is with a squad like this, I think it would not only challenge for the top four but maybe the title, on paper I think it is the equal of any in the prem? Plus it would also leave around 10m for Jan. More importantly it is a healthy mix of youth those that are in there prime and some that have bags of experience. I don't know, I for one would be more than happy if this was our squad for next year. It's not all doom and gloom.cheer up guys! Tobey

–––––fox–––––

reason Ben Arfa deal hasnt happened is everton won't pay 10m up front but want to pay it in add ons. Donovan deal will be permanent. Yobo will leave over his wage bill if they get right price.

Hope this helps evertonians

––––––––––
Sorry, no it doesn't it's rubbish.
As I posted earlier Donovan won't be coming to Goodison permanently until January 2011 at the earliest, and only then if Galaxy fail to win the MLS.
Yobos contract is not up until June 2014 when he'll be 35 years old, so no need to even consider a pay rise for him which he won't get at another club anyway due to his age.

Ed a genuine rumour for you here, about 40 minutes ago Balotelli's agent has confirmed Man City have made a bid for him, i do not know the amount bid, but one thing we can guarantee is that he is City's next big name signing. Milner, Balotelli, Silva and Toure for around 100m is not bad, although their wages will cost City nearly 600k a week, a massive 32m a year.

How in gods name can they break even? {editor's note – they must have some kind of loophole ready to exploit, I don't know what but it is the only way they can possibly pay the wages.}

Steven Taylor to Liverpool, which explains Newcastle signing James Perch.

As well as this, Ashley Young and Martin O'neill have been seen in Liverpool recently, which would suggest that talks are under way.

Joe Cole has had contract offers from Arsenal, Liverpool, AC Milan, Real Madrid and Tottenham. Some other clubs are expected to make offers soon.

Now billy sharp is at doncaster and boro have captured a very good free of kris boyd in my opinion, it is looking likely that gary hooper could actually be going to leeds, as a leeds fan i didn't think it would happen but after boro got a good striker to replace mcdonald and leeds target billy sharp chose another club it all hopefully shows that leeds have got him :) haha MOT

Hooper isn't going to Leeds, dream on. On a more realistic note, Paul Tisdale will be named new Swansea manager this week.

 

06 Jul 2010 01:09:10
Jason Scotland/ George Boateng lined up to join Hartlepool as soon as the investment has been made. the paper wrok is all completed and ready to be signed.

I do work for Dougie Freedman he informs me Palace have missed out on James Harper, they will be looking to sign Simeon Jackson, Danny Green and Mark Randall.

James Harper will be going to Bristol City as a direct replacement for Paul Hartley who will be off to Hearts.

 

06 Jul 2010 01:11:07
– Raul Mierles of FC Porto is going to Chelsea or Arsenal for 16–18M Euros. FC Porto have signed Joao Moutinho from Lisbon as a replacement [11M bargain]

– Despite strong interest from England and Italy, Keisuke Honda is set to remain in Russia for at least another season.

– Manchester United will be offering around 30M Euros for Luis Fabiano of Sevilla.

– Aleksander Kolarov is edging closer to his 16M move to Man City.

FERGIE IS NOT ALLOWED TO SPEND BIG ON ANYONE OVER THE AGE OF 26, THE GLAZERS HAVE MADE THAT CLEAR, FERGIE HAS SHARED THIS WITH US, IT IS NO SECRET TO TRUE UNITED FANS ITS COMMON KNOWLEDGE. THERE IS A RUMOUR CIRCULATING REGARDING SNEIJDER, APPARENTLY UNITED WILL BID 25M FOR HIM AFTER THE WORLD CUP, PERSONALLY I DOUBT THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH AND I CANNOT SEE RAFA ACCEPTING ANY FERGIE BID BUT THE RUMOUR HAS BEEN CIRCULATING FOR TWO OR THREE DAYS NOW.

Lot of losers then, Cole will sign for Spurs – absolutely no doubt at all.

06 Jul 2010 01:37:08
Joe cole .. trust me no 1 is going to pay over 5.5 mil a year for a benchwarmer .. hes going to see has no offer over 80 thou a week and is going to either resign for chelsea (highly unlikely) tottenham (most likely) or west ham (maybe) arsenal (seriously doubt it) liverpool (again doubt it as hes said many times he don't wanna leave london)

kaka' as much as any of you fans of other clubs THINK!/HOPE! hes not .. will sign for chelsea for a record 50 mil (somewhere around tht) .. dnt say anything about this cos none of you know st .. just wait nd see

Millwall are interested in Reading winger James Henry, who is available on a free transfer after coming to the end of his contract at the Madejski Stadium. Plymouth's midfielder Luke Summerfield is another target for the newly promoted side, with the 22–year old valued at around £450,000. The Lions are also eyeing a striker, with Arsenal's Jay Simpson (LOAN), Swindon's Charlie Austin (£1m), Gillingham's Simeon Jackson (£750,000) and Ipswich's Kevin Lisbie (£400,000) all on their radar.

Certaintees to leave the New Den however are midfielder Adam Bolder and striker Ashley Grimes, with striker/winger Lewis Grabban also a possiblility to follow the departures of Dave Martin, Ali Fuseini and Jason Price.

ohh and man united fans, you may have cpl football and many trophies but reading you slagging off chelsea and city is just funny, city have signed to quality players very capable of getting into your side, just because your in 1.1 bn in debt and cannot face the fact you cannot buy many top quality players..stop thinkng your the best. times have changed, chelsea will probably win the title again and city will battle with you for second, ohh and 1–0 haahaa ;)

Guy Assulin (just released from Barca) is heading to the premierleague.
he is wanted by Chelsea, ManU, Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool.
most likely to go to Arsenal or Chelsea.

SURELY IF BARCA HAVE RELEASED HIM THEN HE IS NOT MUCH COP?

^^

Barcelona released Fabregas and now have to buy him back for 40m plus so he might just be a quality talent.

ACTUALLY CESC WAS NEVER RELEASED, HE WAS POACHED TO PUT IT BLUNTLY, ARSENAL OFFERED HIM A CONTRACT AS BARCELONA WERE UNABLE TO DUE TO SPANISH LAW. CESC WAS WANTED BY BARCELONA BUT WAS POWERLESS TO STOP HIM FROM LEAVING.

ITS POSSIBLE THEY COULD BE GETTING THEIR REVENGE AS WE SPEAK, THEY MAY HAVE NO INTENTION OF SIGNING HIM? UNLIKELY THOUGH.

keane almost a done deal. villa could also see another striker coming. falco or eduardo also on oneills short list. carew and hesk high chance they will both be gone.
arfa or swp also poibilities.

In Response to this post–Liverpool FC Outs
Albert Riera – Juventus – £6.5m
Charles Itandje – Mallorca – £1m
Nabil El Zhar – Nottm Forest – £250,000
Yossi Benayoun – Chelsea – £6m
Mikel San Jose – At. Bilbao – £2.6m
Fabio Aurelio – Marseille – Free
Javier Mascherano – Barcelona – £27m
Ryan Babel – Birmingham – £10m
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Also Dirk Kuyt 10–14 mill
Skrtel 10–12 mill
Kyoriakos 2 mill
Deagen 2.5 mill

Now with all this money from players and more money from the new Owner/Owners these are the players who i think we should or will try to sign.

Milner
Young
Kjaer (LFC fan)
Turan (LFC fan)
Cissoko (LFC fan)
Aguero (LFC fan)
Cahill


I know these will all cost big money but im sure with player sales and new Owners/Owner we have it and as you can see from the list there's not that many players i would like to see at Anfield next season. But lets be honest we didn't need that anyway much! Just get rid of all the average, deadwood etc. We already have the best spine of any team in the Premiership and like Hodgson says he will like to see more English players at Anfield was he talking about Milner and Young i hope so.

As an Arsenal fan I like most are already disappointed with the little transfer noise coming out of the Emirates. iI do agree with the EDS views that Arsenal do manage to keep things very hush hush. Nobody knew Sol Campbell was signing until the day it happened.
what we do know – gallas, silvestre , and most likely campbell are leaving. so that means 2 CBs needed. 1st is laurent konscielny. will happen but i don't see him being 1st choice next to tommy v. the list of possabilities is jagielka, yobo, mertesaker diakhate, possibly cahill and steven taylor. personally i don't think any of these will be signed. I think a double raid on Ajax with Jan Vertoghen(tommy Vs old partner) along with cristian erikson as recomended by the great one dennis bergkamp.
i can't see melo being looked at again due to his love of red cards
with fabregas likely to stay i could see a return of flamini as he is best pals with cesc and would highlight that the grass isn't always greener.
no real attacking transfers apart from chamakh and erikson. but i have a feeling that once man city have concluded their spending, probably in the next 7–10 days, a cheeky bid by wenger for Robinho. the number 10 shirt is vacant now and we havnt had a real creative spark since bergkamp.doubt it will happen but if there is a team robinho might settle into it would be arsenal.
oh and unfortunatly schwartzer to come in. id rather him play szczsney now. never hurt real madrid playing an 18 year old keeper. casillas didn't turn out bad

schwartzer
sagna
tommy v
vertoghen
clichy
song
flamini
fabregas
arshavin
rvp
chamakh

plus
walcott
nasri
wilshire
konscienly
djourou
ramsey
bendtner
eduardo
rosicky
eboue
gibbs

Another Leeds Utd Update for the fanatics

Just getting news through that my earlier post was incorrect and that Akinfenwa has actually completed his medical today!

Apparently it was moved forward and I didn't get a text about it until now. Apologies fanatics.

Therefore, the transfer is 100% done. The deal being 2 years with a further 1 year extension option.

To the fool who said this
"Jose Mourinho Dosnt Rate Iker Casilias And Will Let Him Leave For Man City For £20m"
You looking for an award for worst rumour?
How would Mourinho not rate Casillas? Why would Casillas then want to sign for a nobody team like City complete nonesense.
Following the sale of Yossi Benayoun, Liverpool have made an approach for Stevan Jovetić from Fiorentina but are unlikely to meet the Viola's asking price without the sale of another top player.

 

05 Jul 2010 23:05:26
Daily Mail are suggesting Liverpool are in for Joe Cole, Maynor Figueroa, Joe Ledley and Charles N'Zogbia, and that Insua and Pacheco could be on their way out.

'Not a rumour now, but Hibs have signed a big centre back from Norwich – David Stephens – any Norwich fans out there that can tell me if he's any good ? He's only a young lad, and played a few games at Lincoln City apparently.'
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Fantastic player, expected big things from him at Norwich but Lambert obviously thought otherwise. Saw him in pre–season last year, very good in the air. Sad to see an exciting prospect leave but I would imagine they have a sell on percentage for him. Typical solid English centre back (if there is such a thing anymore)

To the idiot that said man city have a small stadium, eastlands was open in 2002 and it's the fourth highest capacity stadium in the PL.
Anyways, i've heard that celtic, newcastle and blackpool scouts have been to see bohemians play in the Irish league, they are watching a tall CB who's good in the air. I'd say it's McGuinness. He turned down trials in the uk many times as he thought he'd be homesick, he feels he is at his best now and ready for a move away from ireland.
Hope it goes through,
Zippy

Zippy where's Bungle and George or are Man City signing them for £80M and paying them £220K a week as well.

Roy Hodgson is lining up a £12m move for Gary Cahill and he may use Sotiris Krygiakos, there were also rumours of Manchester United and Arsenal but Arsenal have just signed Laurent Koscienly for £8.5m and are planning a move for Per Mertesacker, Manchester United have spent £7.5m on Chris Smalling and have Vidic, Ferdinand, Brown, Evans and O Shea so unless Vidic or Ferdinand are leaving I can't see him going to Old Trafford.

Peter Crouch is in line for a sensational return to Liverpool Football Club for a fee of £8million. It is a done deal and will be announced next week once Tottenham Hotspurs confirm the signing of a surprise forward up front.

West ham to make a double bid of 7.5 mil for luke young and steve sidwell. grant possibly looking at shorey if belhadj is not available at the price he would pay. the double deal will be in the papers later this week. Reo–coker and davies will stay at villa for another season whilst beye is struggling to find a new club owing to his wage demands. Likewise with heskey.

Milner has been offer 85k a week at villa that and a central midfield slot – whether that will be enough who knows. Young will not leave this year, believe that he will only play for barca, united or inter milan – til then will stick with a assured first team spot.

In terms of incoming. Keane is a certainty. I work for a firm of bookmakers and this is thought to be happening before the end of next week. then it is a mystery. Mon keeping cards very close. I understand that eduardo was offered to villa, but villa did not approach arsenal, but arsenal approached villa. Interesting one i have also heard that villa may be interested in dorrans of west brom for 8mil – perhaps a milner replacement. Ed – have you heard about dorrans to villa?

On another note – piquionne to move to west ham by the end of the week and will be partnered by yakubu. Where does that leave cole? I think there is a cole shaped hole at liverpool perhaps. {editor's note – I have heard rumours that a bid was made and rejected out of hand for Dorrans. Not got a clue how much it was for, 8 mill could be WBA's asking price or it could have been the amount of the rejected offer.}

Neymar–loan him to west ham after we've bought him
Aguero and maybe a few youngsters, stop living in dream land and get back to reality. Oh, and we will also loan Scott Sinclair to Plymouth and Sam Hutchinson to Norwich.

Hey Editor,
I hear a lot about Liverpool Young Milner Van der Vaart Aguero Gervinho. Joe cole can you tell me the ones that are in the works Vdv Aguero and joe cole have some truth because its players we need but can you tell me up to this points who really looks like coming in. {editor's note – I am not convinced any of those players are coming in, the most likely would be Cole, but I really do hope that he chooses somewhere else and drains another club of millions for his mediocrity.}

Doesn't mean it is not happening, just that if it is they haven't heard anything of it, which makes me sceptical.

Ed – I am a die hard blue (Everton)
i have heard many things on:

–Vertoghan
–Hatem Ben Arfa
–a 'proven' striker

Can you clear this up at all for me? {editor's note – clear it up how mate? Do you mean are they targets? If so, then yes they are. If you mean are they about to sign, only Ben Arfa is close, the MLS is not keen on letting Donovan go, he is seen as the figurehead for the future, though Donovan wants the move back to Europe. Price is holding things up right now. Onouha and Vertonghen (sp?) are both possibilities, probably one to replace Yobo who Moyes wants to offload. I am not sure on the proven striker though, I thought Donovan and Ben Arfa would both act as cover up front, if signed.}

ARE YOU KIDDIN OR WHAT.GLASGOW IS A CRACKN CITY! HAVE YOU EVEN BEEN? WHY WOULD HE BE WORRIED ABOUT IT WHEN HE PLAYED FOR HULL WHICH IS A TOTAL SKIDMARK OF A PLACE. THINK B4 YOU TYPE YA MUG

I live near Glasgow and go out at the weekends there. It's a wonderful vibrant city and all the places that Bullard would go to would be the equivalent of anything London has to offer. Please use your brain before you post as all cities in the UK have good and bad points/areas

I'm a Hull fan, I live in East Yorkshire, but also have a home in London and happen to have an office next to Celtic Park, I also know Jimmy.

Hull has it's good parts and bad parts, just as Glasgow and London do. Jimmy is happy in Hull, but he knows that the club can't afford him at the moment, so he's happy to look at other options. If he stays here, he'll be one of the best players in the Championship, if he goes to Glasgow, he'll be one of the best players in the SPL and he'll enjoy himself at Club 29 on a weekend.

People often refer to Hull as a poor place to live, particularly people who've never been here, but then there's stupid people everywhere.
