matt mills will join celtic despite
interest from bolton wanderers(25)(12)Who ever he joins good luck to them player with bad attitude and we got 5.5m for himTrue he's rubbish carnt believe we payed 5m for him he's not worth 2m

From a reliable source Altrincham's Damien Reeves wishes to move up one division and stay local near to his home rather than join a league club and play reserve team football again.(4)(10)It must be Grimsby ,Mansfield or Lincoln then, they are the teams closest to his home in Doncaster.

People may laugh at this but it's 100% true: I have a friend who's uncle is a football agent and he said that Ex Huddersfield player Gary Roberts is in talks with League One club Shrewsbury Town.(12)(19)His best mate joe Jacobsen plays for shrewsWhy would anyone laugh at this??Collins still not backNot laughing at this either, sounds ok to meHes already signed 4 either pne or shef weds :{This is not laughable, makes a lot of sense! However, with Mark Wright and Aaron Wilding now signed, we only need one more winger, Ryan Hall or Gary Roberts.That's believable, He's over rated (Huddersfield fan)I doubt Gary Roberts would go to Shrewsbury because the whole reason he didnt sign a contract with town was because he though they wouldnt get promoted and he wants championship football and i think he is championship standard dont get me wrong it would be a good signing for shrewsbury but i just couldnt see it happeningPerhaps he was championship standard when he refused to sign a new contract at the start of last season. Since then he's been unbelievably poor and wouldn't cut it in the higher league now. Would be a good signing for a newly promoted club

Damian Reeves is going to boyhood and hometown club Doncaster, not some tinpot League(4)(9)Reeves not yet sign with Doncaster deal done?I dont think Reeves is with Doncaster yet, looking likely though

Liverpool have a bid of around 8m accepted by Fulham for Clint Dempsey , Peterborough United are close to signing Oldham goalkeeper alex cisak and free agent Danny Swanson , Peterborough are also interested in bringing youngster Adam Morgan in on loan. Arsenal are ready to offer Wonjech Snezczny and some cash to bring Pepe Reina to the Emirates , Liverpool are interested in signing Roberto Soldado And Adam Johnson , Liverpool outs : Martin Skrtel (Inter & Real madrid are interested) Glen Johnson ( Real Madrid showing interest) Dirk Kuyt (already gone to fenerbahce) Maxi ( interested in a move to a spanish team) Jay Spearing ( Wigan or Southampton loan) Luis Suarez (Real Madrid , Barcerlona , Juventus interested but he wants to stay) Brendan rodgers will listen to offers for Andy Carroll.(8)(37) 


 
Made up rumour, Wojciech Szczęsny is better than reinaPeterborough not interested in making loan signings. Confirmed by both Darren Ferguson and Darragh MacAnthony weeks ago. None of the previous loans have had any great impact, so club are closing the door on the loan system.We could possibly put a bid in for himRE: 1st reply
On what planet is Szczesny better than Reina?! Reina is world class and szczesny is average..Firstly, suarez doesnt want to stay. secondly, dempsey said he would only leave for a champions league club. thirdly, soldado is a spanish international, playing for a club which gets champs league every year. Stupid. Deluded. ScouserSzczesny is well beter than reina.every fan apart from liverpool fans will say that reina has gone down alot in the last 2 years and szceza is only improvingI've watched Spearing several times this season and he always looks horribly out of his depth. Honestly don't think he's better than Saints have already.Spearing to Wigan? Lol He wouldn't make our bench, dreadful playerSuarez DOES want to stay and rodgers has told the board that suarez cannot be soldPeterborough have won the chase to sign Scottish midfielder Danny Swanson who is out of contract with Dundee UnitedWigan and Fulham are chasing Derby County Striker Theo Robinson For A fee of 1.5 millionIm a lfc fan and yeah i agree reina has had a bad season and is definitely not in the form of his life but that by no means makes szczesny better than him because hes not. reina is a better keeper alough szczesny has a lot to give he is not up to reina's standards! but who knows...he may be one day, we will have to wait and see! LFC.DAN.YNWAI am a neutral fan and I would say currently Reina possibly has the edge on Szczesny.

However, Szczesny is young and improving every season, whereas reina is old and getting progressively worse. I would value Szczesny higher than Reina for that reason, despite Reina being currently slightly better and more reliable. Why would Arsenal commit to Szczesny and develop and bring him up through the ranks and put up wiht his youthful blunders if they were just going to use him in exchange for an older keeper? They will stick with him now as he is only getting better, he loves Arsenal and has the potential to be world class.8 m for Dempsey - ha - you are totally deludedHow can you take anything seriously when people can't actually spell. Dempsey will go to Arsenal or will stay at the cottage. It does make me laugh. Where do you get these bullsht rumours?Reina is 29, which is in no way old for a keeper. He wasn't at his best last season but still quality. Szczesny is young and might become better than Reina but at the moment Reina is better"Glen Johnson ( Real Madrid showing interest)"
I am sure mourinho is a better judge of player than that, good going forward but considering he's a defender he just can't defend.I love how people think Glen Johnson still cant defend - compared to a centre back no he cant but for a right back he is very good and has improved significantly this seasonHe can't defend. Richards can defend. Johnson just gets caught up the field all the time.

mark taylor to join newcastle from
bolton,for a fee of £2.5million with

05 Jun 2012 20:28:31
ed, anything on West Brom?(3)(11)Yousuff Mulumbu is a target for Newcastle UnitedCome end of june they probably still won't have a manager!! They baffle me at times....mulumbu and Olsson want to leave....let em! We've always ended up better off when our so called 'stars' leave i.e. koumas, kamara, Robinson, greening and gera

 


05 Jun 2012 20:29:20
Rotherham United will tomorrow submit a club record bid for an unnamed young international striker, the club are also in discussions with 4 other players to join the Millers.(9)(5)Nahki Wells ?????Will have to wait and see on this one.International Stirker? - I didn't know Rotherham had big links with The Faroe IslandsRobbie Brady the name being heavily linked in the local press.We have approached chesterfield for their striker scott boden, he's quick and quite strong. think he would be a good signing if we could sign him though..... possibly a 20 goal season man. we dont usually have a consistant striker but i believe that he would be. i have seen him play and think he could cause teams problems........ c'mon boden sign for the millers !!!! i know we are not chesterfield class and i know they gave us a 5-0 wooping but with you we can match them !

with coventry city's embargo set to
be lifted the midlands club has turned
their attention back to impressive
young midfielder oliver norwood who is
out of contract this summer.
whether this is a signing or a season
long loan is unknown at this point
but young norwood is passionate
about coventry and has said in the past he would like to stay(11)(7)Mate i know ollie and he is coming to burnley if he has the chance not coventryHe isn't on a free as he signed a new one year deal at Man U. Bfc had offer of 500k turned down as Man U want nearer a million.Sorry mate Oliver Norwood`s coming home to Burnley ....... so dream onHe rejected the contract at man u he said it on twitter cov in talks with Man u over compensation cos he is under 24

 


05 Jun 2012 20:17:36
Hull City are prepared to pay 800K for Bristol Rovers Mustapha Carayol.(7)(19)I played against him in the fa cup first round and he was massive time! Yap yap yap all game wouldn't shut up, average aswellWhat without a manager?800k what a joke! crazy.Muzzy is well worth 800kHes going to sign for barnsley mateOr Leicester or Barnsley or Middlesborough. Honestly no one knows yet, so sit back and enjoy the ride. Also I highly doubt it'll be 800k as he's only got a year left on his deal.Barnsley you aint got the moneyHull City want him, I know I work at Hull City.

Bristol City are in talks with Tottenham about taking Iago Falqu on a season long loan(13)(9)Needs a run in a championship first team, and you'll see his quality.I thought that he was a juventus player and was only at tottenham on loan??He wasn't that great when on loan at saintsThey sign him premanley in january

 


05 Jun 2012 20:11:48

JBCollins hasn't spoken to Turner yet. How could you possibly know he's leaving?My friend is a close friend of collins and has said that is going double his wagesAt the moment keeper on loan other to join later on

 


05 Jun 2012 19:46:10
Steven naismith. Is being inquired about by big sam but is willing to pay 3m but rangers want 4 for the scott it is thought sam wont bid 4m as he wants him as a back up insteed of a starter!(6)(16)This story is utter rubbish.
Everton have already inquired, he has a 2m buy out fee in his contract. Likely destination is Goodison Park to link up with Jelavic.
Nice try.Theres a release clause in his contract 2 millionNaismith as a back up? Lolerific.
So you're saying WHU have bucketfuls of talent in the striking department?
Cole, Vaz Te and Maynard wouldn't even get into the Rangers starting 11.Don't talk nonsense any west ham striker would walk into gers starting 11.If Rangers were a English team they would be in the championship at best probably League 1Naismith way too good for spammersIf rangers were in england, which will not happen as turkeys don't vote for xmas, they would be able to put a new tier on ibrox and take attendance from 50000 (for low level) to 75000 (for proper football). Season tickets go from 500 to 1000.
Before sky money, how many english giants can compete? Not including the massive chip on shoulder drive. I think the english TV money has made a few people loose sight of the truly big clubs in world footie. Take the sky money away and you have got Man U, Man C, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea. Most are funded/debted by large investors but the rest are in the unsustainable world that got Rangers in to trouble. Rangers were taken over with 18m of debt. That is the price of an over rated premiership player who might score once in a compo. Generally speaking, it has burst english footie (which I do like) as most players are mercenary overseas players. (Super squad at 2012 Euros ?). Please don't take this as a rant but the fact of the matter is that Rangers and Celtic are massive world clubs due to the worldwide fan base. It might take a little time to establish but if you said Ajax or PSV would not do well, its the same thing really but the scottish teams have a far superior fan base and earning potential when back in the big time. Personally, we are scottish, we do owe lots of people but our level of debt would be laughed at by small 30,000 attendance "giants" currently being subsidised by sky money.
What if Murdoch says I am fed up by the constant hassle in the UK, see ya!!

 


05 Jun 2012 19:41:11
After bank holiday closure, heard from a good source that Danni Shitu will be at oak well to discuss a 2 year deal with Barnsley.(7)(9)Thats his name therefore its not swearing! lol anyway that would be a good signing for barnsley but im a west ham fan!Club say not intrested

 


05 Jun 2012 19:27:58
Tottenham have bid 5m for Jack Butland.(5)(31)

 


05 Jun 2012 19:12:05
Dennis bergkamp next swansea manager ;)(18)(17)Didnt know you could get bergkamp on fifa ultimate teamIan Holloway ..Great players don't make good managers...especially when he has had no managerial expierence and has stated that he does not want to manage. Bookies are very clever at making false markets and making a quick buck! The smart money should be on Gus Poyet, he is in South America until the weekend...nothing is coming out of the Brighton camp which is unusual...Poyet is normally the first to say when he does not want a job. Swansea are not saying a word regarding who they want...are they waiting for the weekend before making a move? Alot of people within the Brighton camp are getting twitchy.Eddie Howe will be there by end of next weekNone of you are rigth - Benitez is coming back to the Prem with the Jacks.

Seen him at Sarn Services earlier tonight.I know saying this isn't going to make any difference but seriously Marcel Desailly seen in a restraunt in mumbles with Huw Jenkiins but whether this is just a catch up (as Desailly took some of his coaching badges at the swans) or something more serious?

 


05 Jun 2012 18:55:26
Any crawley town or crystal palace
rumours?(3)(23)

 


05 Jun 2012 18:40:32
Yeovil Town to sign former left back and newly capped Jamaican international, Nathan Smith from relegated Chesterfield for an undisclosed fee.(6)(12)How sure are you?Doubt it he said he is looking forward to the promotion challenge with chesterfieldCan't see that happening, Sheridan rates him wellHes got to say that... every player confirms their staying at the club... and then an offer comes in from somebody better...Smithy not going anywhere hopefully ..just need randall to sign ...and some wingers in

Heard rotherhams got betters odds to go up the than the mighty town ........blue armyTeam shaping up well so far but need a really strong midfielder, also what about right back is drew going there or not? Re nathan my gut says that if Sheridan can get a fee he will accept as he did not make best use of him last season.... We would need to replace Griffiths? Still need left winger as well Kevan Hurst?All we need is danny whitaker and mark randall to sign their contracts and we'll be back up in league 1 again this time next yearWhitaker and randell have 1 more year left on there contracts ? So why would chesterfield offer another one ,just yet?Their contracts have finished, Chesterfield have offered 1 year contractsWhittaker and Randall are both out of contract but have been offered new 1 year deals, both should be decent players in league 2 but we still still need a strong aggressive midfielderWhittaker and Randall have both signed one year contracts thankfully!

 


05 Jun 2012 18:09:01
ANY BRISTOL CITY NEWS.(4)(23)

 


05 Jun 2012 17:38:18
Ed, any rumours where david clarkson may be going, cheers(1)(15)Good player always knew where the back of the net was sorry to see him goI heard he.s in talks with preston along with lutons keith keane.In talks with Barnsley and mk donsCarlisle.

 


05 Jun 2012 17:50:22
brentford to sign paul hayes form charlton for 50k
and jake bidwell from everton by the end of the week(7)(13)50k haha err no more like 250kBidwell on loan, presumably? He's just survived the cull of reserve and youth team players so can't see him going anywhere on a permanent deal.Hayes for 50k? I don't think so. Powell should keep hold of him, he has championship experience .Good Paul was shocking towards the end of the seasonBidwell 100% done deal hayes unlikely maybe paynter from leeds or saido berahino permantly or possibly marko mitrovic from chelsea, he was realeased a couple of days agoWe have more chance of getting paynter cos curle our manager at notts as leeds connectionsWe won't get Saido Berahino - He had attitude problems, he thinks he's big time and he and Rosler didn't see eye to eye, thats why his loan was cut short.

Paul Hayes won't get a look in in the Charlton team next season, he didn't get a look in in league 1 so what makes you think he will in the championship!

David Moyes is on holiday so no deal will happen until he is back, Brentford would like him on a permament deal and have discussed with Everton and Bidwell himself, if this cannot be agreed then it will be a season long loan deal."he didn't get a look in in league 1 so what makes you think he will in the championship"

Injuries, we were very lucky last year, that wont happen two seasons on the trot. I think CP learnt from the 'barren' spell of BWP that keeping faith can only go so far, he'll be back in if that happens again.^^ spot on. Notts County and Crawley are also after Hayes and i suspect that they have a bigger budget and more chance of signing him on a higher wage (brentford fan)LOL 50K, you cheeky mongrels. I suppose you want us to throw in his boots too!

 


05 Jun 2012 17:43:47
Southampton to win the race to sign goalkeeper Jack Butland, for £3 million, as they are the only team to have offered him a guarantee of first choice 'keeper within a season(29)(18)^ Hope this is true ^There is no way a newly promoted club will offer a first team guarantee to a 19 yr old goalkeeperIm a saints fan i don't think he will be number 1 davis is still a good keeper and he won't just lie down and give up the number 1 spot he earnt without a fight but if we do get this lad would be a gd sighningYes but he won't want to be guaranteed first choice in the Championship.They may offer him a first-team spot in 12 months (as written) - Kelvin Davis is now 36 and wants another crack at the Premier League (and after being named Championship Keeper of the year also deserves it) but the Saints need to plan for the future - I hope this is true too!It will be great news if Saints do sign Jack Butland, however I can see the lad staying at his current club for at least another season.Yh i miss read it lol i still think foster or green would be better my optionWould be a good signing but I can't see it

 


05 Jun 2012 17:37:28
Hi Ed, any truth in the Cadamertri rumours to carlisle, totally underwhelmed if true, poor signing in my opinion {Ed003's Note - I really don't know}(7)(9)Says on wikipedia cadamarter has agreed a 2 year deal at carlisle, he may not be as good as he was but boy does he have experience also he will fit into how we play if this rumour is true, don't underestimate this manBeen released from every club he's played forActually, it says he currently has no club!! He's a good back up player who can change games from the bench so don't write him off if it is true!Played with him at Grays, the only lad to rock up to the ground in a gleaming brand new X5 while everyone else is struggling in clios and golfs. Top lad good luck to himGood signing i think age isnt on his side but he can do a job for us hasnt got the best scoring record but im sure he will fit in well to what we are trying to do hereZoko rejected new contract so could look likely

 


05 Jun 2012 17:24:41
Northamptons Byron Webster in talks with Mark McGhee over a possible move to Bristol Rovers(9)(12)Have him for free please? cant believe he still has a year left on his contract....

 


05 Jun 2012 17:21:25
west hams nicky maynard is to be shipped out on loan to bolton.(13)(41)I'll take him....I think they may be relying on him - unless Cole suddenly has a new lease of life (ie sheds about 5 years)

 


05 Jun 2012 17:18:13
Gylfi sig is on holiday, knowing personal terms have been agreed with Swansea and a bid has been accepted from Reading.
Nothing will happen till he returns and even then he is likely to be waiting on a phone call from favourite-ever-bloke Brendan Rodgers for a chance to play at Liverpool.(28)(10)Liverpool need him! Also IMO Rodgers will be found out within 6 months (out of his depth at Liverpool, frustrated by not pulling it off on the pitch and speaking too easy to the media) .. He'll leave by mutual by agreement, gone by Feb. {Ed003's Note - Cheers for that Meg }I think he will be a success. He will be given the time by Liverpool, which is something he will need to re-build the team and get them playing the style he endorses. Shame he didn't work out for us (Reading fan) but still think he is a top young manager.Brian is his favourtie-ever-bloke, he was the one that spotted him and gave him his chance in football. He's known him since he was 13 he didn't know rodgers until he came to readingHe plays for hoffenhiem not readingHe plays for Hoffenheim now but has been a Reading player for much longer. Shows the lack of knowledge some people have about players. This isn't just Reading seeing a player from last year and taking a punt. They've always wanted him to stay and if Reading had had the money at the time and were in the PL they would have kept him.Sadly I don't think we will get Gylfi (Reading fan), saw an interview with him in the London Standard or Metro and all he talked about was Liverpool but definately not Swansea as we all know. Just hope the Liverpool talks break down due to a lack of first team football, as he probably won't be the first name on the Liverpool midfield team sheet each week.Why do reading think their good?! they have no chance over liverpool but maybe over the swans!You don't no what your talking about reading are a great team we beat Liverpool 2-1.Brendan gave him his chance in the reading team actually, and then a chance in the prem which gylfi loved. He does like brian but he prefers rodgersHe's coming bak to Shrewsbury after his loan spell 4 years ago he found league 1 to be more his style. Back to seriousness hell go to Liverpool as yes he may love reading but Liverpool are still a bigger club and we are in Europa

 


05 Jun 2012 17:16:28
West ham to get el mohomandy on loan from Sunderland.(26)(14)Will be no loan, bid 2.5m or get lost

Goteze in at the emirates within the next week.(8)(29)Who?
Do you mean Gotze if so hes a wonderkid
valued at 35 million.Not a chance in hell
I live in Germany and there is no way that Dortmund would let Mario Götze GoGood for your fantasy football....!!See if you can buy it there also.

 


05 Jun 2012 16:43:44
mk dons are leading the chase to sign allistair slowe and matty blair and scott laird , alan smith and stuart beavon and finally lee croft .(7)(21)Doubt this as Scot Laird has already signed for PNE!Scott laird signed for PNE 2 weeks ago...he wont want to leave untill Jan 2013 at the very earliest.Sounds pretty good, seems like most of these could actually become a reality!

 


05 Jun 2012 16:43:39
Luton want to bring back Claude Gnakpa to replace Dan Gleeson at right back. Delroy Faceu is still on their list of targets.(8)(14)

 


05 Jun 2012 16:41:49

05 Jun 2012 16:06:51
I have heard from a reliable source at the club that Bristol City have signed Paul Dixon from Dundee United. The club also expect to sign Richard Keogh who wants to re-sign for City. Talks are well advanced for an unnamed goalkeeper who was at a premiership side last year. Dave Clarkson will sign for The Gas and Jamie McAllister will have a trial at Yeovil Town.(17)(15)Its probably mark bunn

 


05 Jun 2012 16:32:56

Along with David Bird, Hereford have former Rangers and Aberdeen youngster Christiano Kisuka preparing for a trial during pre-season.

Kisuka, who gained recognition by winning Soccer AM's Skill School, spent last season at Syrianska in Sweden.(2)(2)

 


05 Jun 2012 15:31:10
Rangnick likely to become Belgium manager. Prospective managers are being put off by the limited transfer budget on the table. I believe Michael Appleton will be offered the job with Downing as his assistant. As per last year, the majority of signings will be freebies. They will go for Foster but that will be after they have sold Mulumbu for around 7 mill. Peace wants a manager with experience, with good coaching skills but who is cheap and is not after a big transfer budget HENCE why we have not got anyone yet - they are hard to find. We were just lucky to get Hodgson at the right time.(5)(7)Laudrup will be the next Baggies manager
the deal is being done under the radar as they say so that no third party can jump in and poach the no 1 target.Appleton will be the next manager as he knows the players and staffAppleton will not be Albion manager as the board realise that to sell season tickets for the forthcoming season they need a "name" as to keep the club moving forward,

 


05 Jun 2012 16:12:30
Celtic are set to complete the signing of Fraser Forster on a five year deal from Newcastle United. The fee is reportedly £2.5m(15)(16)Dont know what they see in him,have i missed something.Why would they pay 2.5 million when theyve had an agreed fee of 2 million since the start of the season?What do celtic see in him? well he had 24 clean sheets last season n he's a good keeperYeah you have missed something.. the most cleansheets 2 years in a row, setting a record for the most clean sheets in the history of the league

 


05 Jun 2012 16:00:58

Watford rumoured to be taken over by a European.
Rumours suggest that it may well be the Udinese chief who was rumoured to be interested in taking over Watford back in Febuary.(11)(11)Old newsIt doesn't take a week for a take over. So it may be old news. It doesn't mean it's not still in motion.What so Bassini is just gonna sell like that? He's just paid for our new pitch and new screens for the stadium!Bassini has only paid 200k deposit
on the pitch. Watford staff were paid late
and he's missed the due date for the bond
payment. He's broke !They were, Laurence Bassini is definately european, as was Michael Ashcroft (Baronet) and all the others.Utter rubbish, please stop these silly rumours nowYou are so full of it! ALL payments to former shareholders are up to date, in fact Laurence recently announced plans to pay off all the debt earlier AND clear the club's 1M overdraft. I have a relative on the staff who most definetly has been paid IN FULL + ON TIME too! 500k poured into Red Lion pub, new screens and tannoy installed in ground months ago. Ref. the pitch, like any building works, the balance will be paid work is completed. The Bassini hate club need to remember investors were not exactly queueing up to put their money into the club....Well this is a false statement, as according to bassini he turned down 16m and 32m bid for watford from two different potential investors and also said there has been interest expresssed from the udinese owner,so actually for once there is plenty of potential investors in watford fc.This is one of the most sensible comments on the whole Bassini / take over thread that has been running for the last couple of weeks. As far as I can see Laurence Bassini has been true to his word and proving to be an asset to Watford FC. I can only assume that the idiots who have been posting scurrulous rumours about his finances are either fans of a very small minded team in Bedford or friends of former directors either way GET A LIFEThis post is complete rubbish. Get of Bassini's back. He is doing a great job. There is NO potential investor so stop believing silly rumours and welcome back to the real worldWho is bidding 16 and 32 million for Watford?! Bassini bought the club for 400,000. He's doing a great job as well!More BS! Bassini is not in any position to even consider any bids for the club, under the conditions of the takeover he cannot take any funds out out of the club or sell up before he has paid off the former shareholders. If he defaults, which he shows no signs of doing so far, the shares and therefore control of the club will revert to Ashcroft and Simpson.

Sheffield United have offered Kev Macdonald a new deal but he wont sign anything until hes fit again. Ive been advised hes had talks with Owls but injury is a problem
Williamson has agreed terms with barnsley but hes stalling as hes hoping a bigger championship club will come in for him
Porter has signed until 2016 with DW looking to sign Mooney from Orient to partner him. Rumours of Showunmi to Blades are premature. Hes been offered a deal but wants one last go at Championship football
Maguire has been in talks with Ipswich along with Quinn. Although DW wants to keep both Mcabe wants to cut down wage bill and can get fees for both(11)(14)I agree with most but giving porter a deal until 2016 is rubbish like the playerBearing in mind Maguire earns peanuts, it's not his wages that McCabe wants to save, he just wants a transfer fee. Harry can do so much better than Ipswich. Just needs time, maybe in January someone from the PL might come calling.Feel sorry for you if mooney signed! He is absolutely abysmal. No pace, terrible in the air and is often totally anonymous throughout the gameKeep it up agent wilsonHe may be able to do better than Ipswich. Who knows? However if he did come to Ipswich and he is as good as you say he is, he'll be in playing week in week out and get some invaluable championship experience.

Rory McArdle has verbally agreed a contract with Shrewsbury Town.

He is set to travel down to Shrewsbury and sign the deal. (Mr T)(10)(6)He will be signing for Carlisle Utd later this week...I can see him being a Shrewsbury player in 1-3 daysSorry mate.........as you will see mCardle will be a bradford city player by the end of the weekBrilliant signing, but i can see him choosing Carlisle over Shrewsbury.

JBCarlisle and Bradford are interested but has opted for Shrewsbury. (Mr T)Like i said earlier......he has just signed for us ( bradford ) on a 2 year dealHe has signed for Bradford!

The takeover for either Nottingham
Forest or Leeds United will be confirmed
later this week. The buyer is the Kuwaiti businessman Fawaz Al-Hasawi and
wanted to buy a 2nd tier English team.
Fawaz Al-Hasawi and the club just
have to sign the final contract before
it can be confirmed.

I hope its Forest as I am a Forest fan.(11)(21)Both are great clubs and It would be both to see back I the prem. let's hope the takeover is a good one and the new owner wants to do all he can to get one of these famous clubs, back I there rightful placeLeeds are in talks with americansThought it said the businessman doesn't have the financial clought to buy a championship club I heard it the newspaper?@The Forest fan,don't get carried away.Remember what happened to Notts.Co.
Derby fanHe must have adeep pocket to pay off massive debts.Don't believe all you read, Farwaz is skint and Leeds are in talks with an American consortiumHope forest do get taken over, but nobody knows anything of this guy? i dont trust it untill it happens. dont want to see us get a series of dodgy owners like portsmouth didWon't be leeds,sources in middle east say kuwaity guy has not got the financial clout to be serious contender to buy leeds utd.turnover at leeds is more than double that of forest and will cost more than double the price of forest.chicargo based group in box seat for leeds utd.

Huddersfield Town twin signing imminant. Giles Barnes is to become a Terrier. The free transfer signing latterly of Doncaster Rovers will put pen to paper on a two year deal on Wednesday. Wingman Gai Assulin (released by Man City ) will join be announced by Simon Grayson of part of his plans at or around the same time. Both players fit the brief experienced but young, eager and gifted with a point to prove and on free transfers.(14)(9)I like the sound of this but with lets say we have to accomaodate Assulin, Barnes and Ward in the same team, how will we do that? Unless we play one up front I can't see how that will work as our midfield will be lightweight in the win the ball department to say the least. I think we need some real bite in our midfield, players who can win the ball, distribute it and keep posession - something we've lacked the season. I like the sound of Assulin though, could turn out to be a real talent if he progresses.But Giles Barnes hasnt set the world alight has he... and has had some bad injuries. Surely we can find a better attacking midfielder. Stephen Quinn from Sheffield would be very good...

Rumours around Pride Park suggest that Derby's only signing this summer could be a £2m+ striker to replace Steve Davies, with other squad positions being given to youth team players(9)(5)Fairly believable - who would you like to see up front next season Rams fans?Thio as got us out the sht in 1or2 games os dont slag him off to the so called derby fanI heard that its Johnny Russell.

But I expect to see 5 signings

As Nigel has been give 1.5 million before
transfer sales and with Davies going for
1 million + and Bailey 700k.

He would have to replace them
Will hughes is the only one of our wonderkids old enough to play a major part next season.

Krystian Pearce
Michael Jacobs
Daniel Powell

To be bought

Steve Davies
Ben Davies
James Bailey
Chris Maguire
Paul Green
Lee Croft
Miles Addison

To be sold

I really dont think it would be just one signings seeing as we had terminated 7
contracts such as Leacock and Anderson
and we are selling 6 first team players
and only to get a striker.Theo has improved in every area and is working really hard over the summer with coaches to improve his touch.watch him score 15 + goals and then see the fans say anything about him.Dont chant Theo Theo if you then go on the interent to slag him off.He has been a Bargain and so has steve davies remember he only cost us 250,000 so whether we get 1 million or 3 Million we are still making profitYou can't knock Theo,he did score 12 goals.We know his faults but I for one can put up with that.

Grant Holt quitting for West Ham,West Ham lost their battle to hang onto Rob Green - who looks set for Malaga,Reading want to re-sign axed West Brom defender Nicky Shorey,Danny Guthrie is being offered the chance to revive his career at Southampton after being released Newcastle.(19)(8)Holt would not join West Ham as he wants to move to a bigger club up north, West Ham bound to struggle this season as they lack quality.Holt is contractually obliged to play for Norwich for 2 more yearsGrant Holt is not able to quit for West Ham, he will only be sold when someone pays a stupid amount of money for him, Norwich can hold him for another 2 years and have no desire or any need to sell him, so only a crazy offer will secure his servicesFor your info; Dan Ashworth scouts and accuires new signings so the fact there's no manager is irrelevant.Would love to see guthrie at saints

Reading's bid for Gylfi Sig accepted but does NOT mean he is singing. This was the easy part. IMO he will go to Liverpool. Watford have enquired about joe mills and simon church
MrRfc(20)(9)Signing not singing haha
MrRfcWhat's the source for this?Gylfi sings aswell, wow, is thr no limits to this mans talent?C'mon now, you really must stop this MrRfc. We all saw how much your new owner is worth. Whilst it certainly isnt pocket change, the likelihood of him spending 6-7m on a single player is practically nil. Anyone can see that. Good luck next season though.I still think our promise of offering Gylfi first team football and his love for the club and we can easily pay him say 30k a week before Liverpool come sniffing might tempt him. And we keep transfer business quiet to Brendan wont know we bid for himHe will end up at LiverpoolWould love for Watford to get Church and Mills. shows some ambition that we lacked with our signings last season.The likelihood of us spending that much on a player is high, you dont have to believe me but a bid has gone in and i am told it has been accepted. the fee may be less as we have a sell on fee. i dont expect us to sign him but it is a sign of intent. I cant see us spending that much on a player this year but this shows the money is there for the RIGHT player
MrRfcI wouldn't be surprised if Reading's bid is an over the top offer for Sig for 2 good reason. 1) Reading have a sell on clause therefore this will be taken into account and will reduce the final fee paid and 2) Liverpool will need to match Reading's over the top offer to secure the player meaning Reading FC will receive more from the sell on clause... Interesting transfer whichever way you look at it.It is true that we have had a bid accepted for Gylfi. And as we know what Gylfi is like 6.8m would not be a risk at all. Anton gave Mcdermott 15m to spend and spending 6.8m on a proven player is no risk. Its just whether he wants a return to us or go to LiverpoolU may have Church...

news from Leicester city and that they have offered emile heskey a return back to the king power on a one year deal. they are also trtinto sign Robert Snodgrass from Leeds but Jermaine beckford is not a part of the deal wereas lee peltier might be heading the other way or to newly promoted Huddersfield town. Leicester are also trying to sign Wilson Palacios from stoke and Chelsea youngsters lalkovic who was released earlier this week and with Chelsea Jacob Millis will join either Southhampton or Burnley by the end of this week after qpr didn't opt to sign him. Chelsea to sign hulk after he hinted at a move anwas spotted at Stamford bridge earlier today.(16)(18)Absolute garbage,if snodgrass was to go he would only leave for premier, but he's staying at leedsWilson Palacios to Leicester :-) Love it. Maybe Crouch in a double swoopThe only reason Palacios didn't play much last season was because of an injury he had, even before he joined Stoke.
He will be a key player next season.If you dont think rhodes is worth 8 million dont buy him i hope town rate him at 10 million so no one buys him couldnt think of a better striker in championship tbhHow can u not think ov a better striker in the championship ? Every striker who's scored in the championship is better because Rhodes has never played in that league and so is unproven ! He might not even score 5 goals yet !Snodgrass would not sign for Leicester, if he leaves Leeds it will be to the Premier league.He was at ipswich before we bought him in the championship nuggetRhodes is provan at a higher level than championship scottish u21 and full squad where hes scored for both international is slightly higher than championship and 8 million plus for a proven goal scoring scottish international is cheap as chips.No way Stoke will sell Palacios, this season will be the first that they hope to get the best from him, given that he will more than likely be fully fit.Snodgrass... Premier League ??????Rhodes is not an 8 Mill player.... i wouldnt give 20p for a scottish international. He didnt exactly get them to the Euros because hes a over rated league 1 player who wont score more than 5 goals in the championship.

Enoch Showumni has been seen around the Sheffield United training ground with his agent who has paper work in his hand along with a brown leather briefcase to match his brown leather shoes. He recently became a bosman free player so i will not be suprised if this does not come off. Just what united need, replacement for their 30+ goalscorer for next season. Exciting Times! Up the mighty blades {Ed013's Note - Good luck, he is one of the worst footballers I have ever seen}(6)(19)Released from my team Tranmere, who finished 12th. It's sad and shows no ambition if you do want him, he's awfulHaha, he was on loan to Sheffield Wednesday and was rubbish, scoring no goals in 10 apps. 29 goals in 172 league apps doesn't sound any good.Enoch's struggled to get 30 in his career let alone in a season!! I heard he's going to Luton

Also expect Burnley to make a major signing this week with a unnamed Premier League Defender signing for 1M(11)(8)I hope that we didn't bid for Marney. I can't see him providing us with anything that the likes of Drury and Hyam can't already do.Marney will leaveThere is no chance Marney would leave for that amount of money. He's a claret.

 


05 Jun 2012 12:45:31
Huddersfield have put an £8million asking price on Jordan Rhodes which may put Reading off buying him. As alternatives McDermott is looking at Craig Mackail-Smith and Junior Hoilett. Matt Phillips is also on the Reading FC radar for £3million but Swansea are more likely to get him.(7)(26)Bit of a joke! Why would we not go for Rhodes and then settle for Mackail-Smith bit of a drop in skill. We could easily find a better striker than Mackail-Smith.Holiet has signed for Borussia Muchengladbach (sp) we won't be going for CMS for his scoring ability please see analogies regarding banjo's and donkeys and barn doors.Matt Phillips is twice the player of Rhodes in six games for United he scored six for a winger hes a lot better than Rhodes for nearly a third of the priceJordon Rhodes is not worth 8 million considering just one year on contract left. Also he might not make it at championship level yet, nevermind premiership. His previous season in the championship was poor/average at best.8m for a lad who has had one league1 season albeit a very good one? keep dreaming sunshineCMS has pledged his loyalty to Brighton, especially after rejecting an approach by Team GB for this summer's Olympic Football Team to work hard to address his lack of goals. Gus Poyet is keen to see his investment on him pay off, and is giving extra time to show he can be a leading striker in the league.This information was from the local Reading newspaper. I agree that Rhodes might not cut it in the prem and CMS is not good enough. You might not like it but that doesn't mean it's not true.What Is it with these Reading fans thinking they can get these top players just because they have a few million to spend. You are new to the Premiership and will likely struggle which makes u unsttractive to top players.Arsenal bought oxlade chamberlain from a team in league 1 .pilkington came from league 1.norwich and southampton went straight through the championship from league 1.dont kid yourselves about how strong the prem isRhodes is and out and out Striker hes all about goals 48 goals in 50 games for club and country speaks for itselfId rather sign Matt Phillips and a proven premier league striker like Yakubu. From what I have seen of Rhodes he wont cut it in the premier leagueThink you will find hes contracted till 2015 and he wont go for less than 8 million jog onJordan Rhodes is contracted for the next 3 seasons, not 1. Town don't need the money so can ask what they like...if he goes, we make massive profit, if he stays he continues his development in Championship - its a no lose situation for TownSwansea wont sign anyone until they have a new managerRhodes has had more than one good season 93 goals for club and country in the last 3 seasons. 105 career goal for clubs and country and is only just turned 22. there are players with worse records going for 5 million plus so i think 8 million is a fair priceRhodes is worth about 5-6m if your lucky unproven at a higher levelJordan Rhodes is contracted till 2015. His previous season in the championship was as an 18yo, and he only played 10 times at the most(mainly as a sub). Huddersfield Town do not want to sell him and do not need the money, therefore they can put a silly price on his head, if teams want to bid at that price, more fool them. It is hopefully a win win situation for town. Lots of money if he goes, or too bigger asking price that no team will pay and he stays.Utter cranks, how disrespectful? One season in league one? Think you'll find he's knocked in 20+ in each of the last 3 seasons.
He's not played a season in championship yet.
If Connor Whickham went for 13m I think Jordan is worth a tad more having scored a butt load more. And that is all its based on people. Don't kid yourselves otherwise with this whole 'he's only league' rubbish.This is not a personal dig at Rhodes, but you wouldn't put a 5 million price tag let alone a8 million on a player that hasn't played in the championship yet. Let the lad show everyone what he can do first at championship level. He may well turn out to be another CMS who has found out what his level is!Not sure about swans not signing players before new manager appointed. I think they will have identified players that suit the style of football that they intend to persue. I think the new manager will be told he will have to work with those . Now that Gylfi deal seems dead in the water they may allow new manager to use some of the money we did'nt spend on player(s) he feels may be required.Rhodes is contracted till 2015 so that figure is right as most of it will be performace related i.e score 'x' amount of goal in the prem to trigger a million pounds etc, and do you not think the price tag is inflated to put people off... Wake up. The Connor Wickham Shout is a valid point, he is sht and went for a silly fee. Huddersfield have every right to demand that fee for Rhodes.The higher the league rhodes goes to he will score significantly less goals as most of his game is losing his man, capitalising on mistakes etc however he is worth 5mill plus as he is still very young and an excellent finisher. from a huddersfield town fanDemand all u want...you get it though! Wake up,he's proven nothing except he can score goals in league one! Murray, CMS and others proved its alot tougher in championship let alone prem!Compared to other L1 players that have been trs to the PL, 8 million sounds about right. Fabian Delph 8m to Villa, Oxlade-Chamberlin 13m to Arsenal. Powell from Crewe reported to be on his way to Man Utd with a figure of 10m being reported!...Crazy figures i know but thats the cost of trs these days, especially when they are very young!8 million for fabian delph seriously aston villa pay that and rhodes is not worth 8 million see rhodes play week in week out have no worries he will be class act this season 40 goals for a club in 1 seasonConor Wickham is younger and is English though so will cost more. Rhodes is scottish. Honestly he must be a good player, but 8m for an unproven championship and premier league striker is unjust. 5m is generous for him and I honestly dont think he's ready for the premier league. He looked meagre against a poor Sheffield United at Wembley. He's no better than Shane Long or Danny Graham who were sold for lower than 6m. In fact Graham was sold for 3.5mStop saying Rhodes should be cheaper because NOT PROVEN in championship! He has a very impressive strikers instinct, meaning he knows how to get on the end of things and put the ball away, quality all round strike. Championship wont change him as a player, you lot talk about him on one game you've seen, yet us town fans seen it all from him. You will see.Dude above actually knows about football.Cough - didn't Fergie buy some Portuguese Div 2 player he'd never seen play for 8 million folding? Since when did the money paid for players ever make sense?Rhodes is not scottish by birth,he qualifies because he went to school there while his dad played for a scottish club.Premier league is worth like 60 mil i wouldnt sell rhodes 60 mil is a lot more money than we would get for him keep rhodes we will not be fighting relegation next year either dont make me laugh! (huddersfield fan)

Wigan and Fulham are chasing Theo Robinson and are ready to make a 1.5 million move.(9)(11)Really hope not as Wigan have bigger players in mind and not a dud from the ChsmpionshipNot saying it isn't true, but IMO he isn't ready for the Premiership yet, his touch isn't good enough, especially when he will have less time in the higher league, although if supplied with chances, he will score goals.

Watford manager Sean Dyche has admittedly privately to staff at the club he is still unclear on what his budget is for the new season. With a takeover battle set to rumble on throughout the next few weeks it's hoped a quick conclusion to any sale will allow the manager and Ross Wilson to focus on there key targets.(5)(1)If he admitted it privately to staff, how do you know? The money we get for Mariappa will be more than enough to fund our summer purchases.

Middlesbrough will tie up deals for emanuel ladesma and Francois zoko this week they are also looking at a deal for Steve siminson as goalkeepEr cover for Jason Steele they are also hoping to hijack blackpools move for Forrest winger Paul Anderson


Due to the injury to will keane at man utd boro have now turned there attentions to a loan deal for Sunderland striker ji Don Wong(9)(7)That will be hard considerring Anderson has already signed, pool just waiting for the banks to open on Wednesday to finalise the deal with agent fees and andersons signing on fee.Has anderson gone yet....hmmm noHe is on holiday, like a lot of footballers who are not in international duty, so won't be sign for any for a week or twoIf he was close to signing he'd fly back to sign like Leadbitter did; it's a common occurrence.

Bournemouth have spoked to Doncaster about brian stock for 200k the only problem is wage demmands afc bournemouth have a 5k wage cap(8)(7)No we don't have a wage cap anymore josh mcquoid and Charlie Daniels are on over 6k a weekAs a bournemouth fan i would not be excited if this is true, a real box to box ball winner is needed ...and whats with all our old players being linked bk with us ?Haha Somebody wants to tell Francis, Tubbs, Daniels, grabben and mcquoid about this wage cap then!We do it used to be 2.5k now it's 5k we even no we can have big wages the Russian havent put any money in its all loans but they will put in for south stand because they will have 50/50 with Eddie MitchellJosh is on 4.5k and charlie is on 4kThere is now because of the financial fair play rules, (this applys to any new players)It 5k mate mcquid was on 4k a week at millwall and he said he would move if back if we matched his millwall deal and Daniels is on about 4k - 4.5k maxStockys worth more than thatBox to box? Is there a different Brian Stock out there im not aware of?Surely 5k is less than the minimum wage .... oh wait....Sorry bournmouth fans but after chatting with Brian recently he says only Burnley have had an offer accepted for him and he expects to sign in the next weekWrong wrong wrong think you may have spoken to the wrong stock because he is playing for doncaster next season its confirmed on our websiteJust to put things clear , bournemouths highest paid player is josh mcquoid who earns 4.5k a week.Stoky is injury prone, bad back especially, you have to ask why isn't O'Driscoll making an offer? It's because of his back problems.Brian Stock is not worth those wages! we need a defensive midfielder like A.Robinson. UTCIADDont't think so, there are several players who turn down the chance to play for a bigger club to play for us because of the wages we can offer them. I would say we have at LEAST 5 players on 5k+ a weekI fear this 5k nonsense is a wind up! Everybody knows Tubbs alone is on double that or he would have opted for Hull or Leeds. Wether he is worth that wage is another matter.......,U reckon tubbs is on 10k a week lol afcb players like robbo feeney bartley Pearce wiggins Hollands were on 2k maz we coudnt afford to pay players more than 5k a week we only get 6k average fans the russian only putting money in for the building work that's why Mitchell got him in all tranfers are loans to afcb which they will get back in short time trust meHarry arter can play the box-to-box role, we need backup but he puts in more effort than any other player.2K! Fletcher is on more than that! Theres a few players on 5k+ a week!Thanks for your comments on this matter Mr Eddie MitchellNo player for us is on over five grandHarry arter does have good energy, but honestly if we are going to be competing for the championship next season we need a centre midfielder a lot better then him.Robbo, Feeney, bartley etc were here before the Russian and left before the Russian arrived so they were prob on low money but Tubbs, Daniels etc were signed on the Russians era and before any said wage cap and would not have turned champs clubs down to join us for under 5k!!They are, believe me^^^^^mr Eddie Mitchell ladies and gentlemen ^^^^^^Who bid for tubbs then I can't remember any putting a bid in I knew clubs were interested and Daniels was on 2k and now on double they didn't have clubs bidding only interested like clubs are interested in jalal but know one bid action b4 wordsWho was going to bid for Tubbs when us daft buggers bid 800,000!! Or are you now going to tell us it was 80 and a tenner a week contract, a sherbet dip thrown in for every time he scores?

Lee Clark will be appointed on Friday ready for Gillingham FC(10)(26)God help them.he will need a squad bigger than the cast of ben hur,How do you know thisIs this true? Or just another silly rumour?That's 46 draws then.If Gillingham get Clark then the G's fans should be very, very afraid. Although the media (Sky, Talksport, etc.,) love him - just ask those who are really in the know.

Newcastle 'keeper Fraser Forster is being linked to a move with Brighton, after having a loan spell last season with Celtic. Newcastle will be holding out for a bid of at least £1.5 Million. QPR also interested.(9)(17)Why would they old out for 1.5milllion when they have a pre agreed fee of 2million with Celtic?QPR are a bit more than just interested and Celtic are already talking to his agent. Pretty sure that these bizarre rumours can't be being posted by Brighton fans as they are surely far too sensible.....?Celtic are looking at Tomasz Kucszack and seeing as he is available on a free transfer after his Man United release, they sign him - then Forster wont be going to Celtic.Can only hope this is true, from what I've seem of him he'd be a good signing.Im a Brighton fan, id rather we didnt spend 1.5 Million on a keeper, he is a good talent though. Rather we looked at others first.I'm also a Brighton fan, Is he not a keeper then or am I missing something!Lol why would he go to brighton amean really if he was to leave celtic it would be for like spurs or qpr nor a tiny team like brightonAbsolutely, he could go to Spurs, sit on the bench for 3 years and do nothing except get released after it. Or they might send him on loan to Div 2 and not get the quality of game play he'd get in the Championship. Spurs and QPR wouldn't play him enough. Why be a rotation player when you can be first teamThe championship is miles better than the SPL...Kucszack has joined Brighton on a three year deal.Kucszack has NOT joined Brighton on a 3-year deal. That is fact. Why no people on here crave attention so much?

Negotiations under way and deal will be completed by the end of the week(7)(13)Robinson is on holiday in Turkey! Gonna be hard to sort anything out this week!I will drive him down drop him off they can have himNot exactly a forward step for Watford. The need someone young and eager to challenge DickinsonMaybe, he obviously loves the club but im unaware of what his wages were maybe watford could stretch their budget but does that mean less quality players on a fairly high wage

Lucas Biglia £8mio Cortese has sanctioned an enquiry despite interest from big clubs. Regular premiership football is what he is looking for, rather than sitting on the bench, in order to cement his place in the Belgium team.

Perfect addition at centre midfield, the leader we need.(13)(5)Your post falls down when you don't know his nationality-he is Argentinian!As a Saints fan I can say 1) He is from Argentina and 2) Arsenal and Real Madrid have shown strong interest in signing this player... Would love to see it happen! but don't see it!

 


05 Jun 2012 09:03:29
Fulham and Wigan to bid about £1.5 mil for striker, Theo Robinson of Derby County.(7)(16)Why on earth would they want him....?Derby fan here. Robinson's not Championship standard never mind Premier League - just warning youI would love to see him stay, but if the 1.5million could be invested in a new striker, bearing in mind he only has 1 year left on his deal, would have to say take the cashThe only thing Theo Robinson offers to the derby team is pace. He has no ball control or passing ability and the goals he scored were mainly from point blank range. No one in the right mind would pay 1.5 million for him.I don't think we would accept that, as flattering as the offer is were already selling 2 other strikers so we'd need a replacement before anything, and he's stated that he's happy with us and is not looking to move.I like how people say about his touch, passing and shooting but near the end of the season they have all improved greatly i have seen worse in the prem and most off his later goals were range e.g. against donny and brumWhy do people keep slagging Theo off? He has his faults, but 12 goals is a good return for a young striker, so get behind him! Can't see him leaving though, he says he happy, Clough likes him and he's scoring goals

Burton Albion have signed former Aberdeen and Oldham centre hald Zander Diamond

Source: Official Website(15)(3)Great signing hopefully we can make 7 more top signingsHe's ok as a player but is injury prone though. Will head anything but slow on the ground.Watched this lad a couple of times before. Great in the air but fairly slow, hopefully a partnership with his aerial ability and Stanno's pace could work outGreat signing for Burton if they can keep him fit. He is injury prone and was out through injury for about half the season last year.Good in the air terrible on the floor, to slow he gets turned inside out, more like zander glass

Aston Villa set to sign Grant Holt.

Brighton after Greg Halford and David Norris from Portsmouth.(22)(18)All will happenIpswich and Leicester are in for Norris in a cut price deal to accomodate his inflated wages.

Halford could be a good fit for Brighton but would need to cut his wages. Likely? Probably not.Will only happen if Lambo willing to invest at least 25% of his transfer kitty even then he might not go.Let's hope not{Big G Voice}Fraser Forster or Tomasz Kucszack either would be a fantastic signings for brighton we certainly need a new Goalkeeper , I understand Forster will not be going north of the border.
But watch QPR^yes, foster would be brilliant, but I think kuzszack is much more likely. Halford would also be a good signing, not sure about norrisNorris has said he wants to stay down south with his kids settled at school. He has said he is very happy down in Hampshire so may well join a team like Brighton... Not sure Halford would drop wages but would fit into Brighton's team well if he did^interesting. Are you a Pompey fan? If so, what is Norris like? What type of player is he?Norris is not bad he gets a lot of goals and tries his hardest but he does get injured and one day he turns up and he is class another he is shocking he is a battling midfielder who likes to go forward and scoreSounds quite a lot like the sort of player we need (not the injuries though!)

Anthony Gardner to Sheff Weds(11)(15)Hes a big crock now. Palace got the best out of him. He has just got a major injury and will only be able to play about 20 games a season. Good luck with himWednesday have just got back into the championship and signing players like gardener will just lead to relegation. It's beyond me how this bloke is nicking a living as a pro, shockingly bad player^Are you being serious? Gardner is a brilliant player when fit.Move fallen through as Owls not happy with medical

Carlisle sign Craig Sutherland from Blackpool.(9)(8)Well considering he only got back from Dubai yesterday and is looking forward to getting back to Blackpool. I very much doubt it.Whats your source on this please, no word of this on the Blackpool end.Blackpool fans, any thoughts on this how high do you rate him etc, cheers {Ed003's Note - I don't think b'pool fans saw very much of him,Plymouth fans may be the best option to ask}Sutherland only played a bit role for the Pool at the beginning of the season. Was very very quick but kept fluffing the final shot. Maybe he has gained more confidence since but was out of his depth. Might be better on the wing.Saw him at the last pre-season and he looked promising. Definitely one for the futureVery quick, bit of an athlete, and had a great attitude, very enthusiastic. But wasn't good enough to get into the team. Only young though, plenty of potential there.I like him and his pace, but to be honest I doubt he'll ever be above low championship standard. Came from an american college dvd and didnt do particularly well at plymouth in league 2.

Out of favour striker Jermaine Easter is a loan deal target for Oxford United provided suitable financial terms can be agreed with Palace(9)(23)What a load of rubbish!! There is no way he will want to sign for a team that will in all honestly be struggling to maintain there league status.Have heard Easter is a target for Huddersfield and Barnsley.

dbStruggling to maintain their league status.. Explain why exactly that is?He's talking sense mate, you have to sell players like constable etc and then Wilder is expected to replace him with only a fraction of what is received for him. He won't be the only one leaving either, again having to replace with only a fraction of any fees taken. Oxford have more problems than any of you care to admit, JC doesn't want to leave and yet he's being forced towards the door...or are you going to deny that as well? Like it or not the coming season is going to be one of struggle for you.Exactly he's being forced out everyone knows that. But for a team that played st just towards the end of the season yes that'd be an example. But look at the games where we dominated.. We may not have a good strike force but games like Swindon show we have a solid defence therefore it's not like our whole team isn't good enough. If you saw Oxford every game towards the end you'd see fitness levels were bad, still doesn't mean we're going to struggle to maintain league status when it's improved.And this is going to improve under Wilder? You are looking at having a weakened squad but with the same Manager with the same training program!! you are going to be struggling towards the wrong end of the table unless Wilder can pull some really good rabbits out of the hat for pennies.Well constable won't help then if he leaves? Yes he's being forced out but don't you see his tweets?To be honest I have no interest in ttter!! That's what I'm saying...Constable will be gone...I don't think you will get a replacement that will be any better and certainly not as loyal...Wilder knows he has to get rid of a couple more and he also knows only a fraction of any fees received will be available for replacements!! Therefore you will have a weakend squad (Unless Wilder really pulls some stunts). So you admit yourself that you will have the same manager that a lot of your fans don't want (Despite the rest of the footballing world realising he has done a very good job with a club that really isn't far away from being a non league side) and in all likely hood a weaker squad!! How can you think anything else than a season of struggle awaits you next season? It's not bloody mindedness..it's just a fact....There is next to no money for Wilder to spend and he cannot have all transfer fees received to replace the players that go!!No money? So we're paying a fee for our only signing on the summer so far. Who we've also given him a better paid contract than he was on at Port Vale.
We offered all 3 of our out of contract players better paid deals!
If we're that skint, how come we're rejected bids of 180k? Surely skint clubs would accept them bids?
Oxfords wage budget is the same as last summer. Said so by the owner and chairman.
And nothing but a season of struggle for OUFC, and how can anyone see any difference you say.
Well every bookies have OUFC as 4th or 5th favourites to win League 2!
Your just on a wind up. Which is sad on 'tranfer rumours' website tbhFor the bit about realising he has done a good job that is why I'm not one of people thinking getting rid of him will be better. Its not Wilders fault if our owner doesnt force out a decent budget. And then there is the fans who aren't bothered about Beano leaving.. We would have a weakened squad if half of them left.. At the moment the only one that got in the team is Asa Hall who actually wasn't very good therefore him leaving doesn't mean we will be weakened IMO.We'll have to agree to disagree...ok one player in...you will let Beano go...it's just that you are desperate for a bid that equaled Swindons to transpire...you need that money...And what about Chapman? You're determined not to offer much of a better wage are you? That will be another gone soon by the looks of it! Will you 1 signing so far make up for this as well? I'm not going to get involved in an argument and this is not a wind up...IMHO I think you will end up struggling, and as for the bookies if I am right (I may be wrong, this is after all only my opinion) those odds will change....have a little look at the odds for a RANDOM bunch of teams and see how it changes as they let players go / bring players in not to mention after their rivals have conducted their transfer business. This season has just ended..do you really think the odds currently mentioned for different leagues will be the same once all of the clubs have sorted themselves out?So... "We are not skint, we are offering our players better contracts than they were on" to "the wage budget is the same, our OWNERS said so" to "It's not Wilder's fault that our owners won't give a decent transfer budget" (sigh)A lot of people here are saying different things which you're replying to all of them.. So it's making out as if I'm changing my opinion every different paragraph. If chapman goes, chapman goes. If constable goes, then that's that. I don't want him to but that's how football goes. I would agree with your idea that we'd be fighting to stay up if Clarke, Duberry, Leven and Wright went but at the moment I don't think that will happenI see your point about the players you have but that is only 4 players and there are some rumours about Leven leaving. Either way I feel the squad will be weaker than last seasons...and you finished that with something like 3 points from a possible 21....I don't see at the moment why people would want Leven. After his injury, he wasn't amazing, well tbh he was pretty poor papadopoulos. I understand your opinion and respect it but we'll just have to see what happens next season then..

Watford striker Chris Iwelumo denies rumours to League 1 side AFC Bournmouth and says he happy at Vicarage Road and hopes to stay at the Vic.(9)(3)U do womder why he has had to come out and deny it when the rumour hasent been mentioned anywhere in the press personally dont think he was linked with us.Goes like this, some jounalists had a quick dig about the internet rumour pages, then seen Chris Iwelumo.
"Chris,what do you know about a move to Bournemouth?"
"Nothing."
Hence, in journo speak, a denial.Rumour was out in a Bournemouth paper

Bristol Rovers have lodged two £250,000 bids, one for Northhampton Town striker Akinfenwa, and one for Oxford Town striker Constable.(15)(25)Oxford Town.. YesWrong, James Constable is signing tomorrow lunchtime at the Memorial Stadium for a fee thought to be 200k. The deal will be done and dusted, before he goes on his holidays.Oxford Town? 2 250k bids, do they have that much money?Where's the gas getting this money from have they found a new investor or using money from new staduim which could be another flying pig story. Administration certain this season for your lot.How many strikers can one team have? According to links on this forum rovers are in for:

Akinfenwa 250,000
Akinde 100,000
Constable 250,000
Thomas

With the stickers you already have there will be loads of bench warming to be done with all the above demanding high wages. Interesting to see what happens if they sign and Rovers underperform;) Very excited Gillingham FC fanWe do have that kind of money but not to spend on them two clownsThis is rubbish, constable plays for Oxford united, and the bid was 185,000And was rejected as insufficient. The last offer was 200k + player.COME ON AKINFENWA YAAAAAAAAAAAH, if you cant see i am very excited for this :)

Bristol Rovers are set to complete the 100k transfer of Crawley striker John Akinde. after impressing on loan at the Bristol club last season, Akinde is set to be Bristols first summer signing.(5)(26)Akinde did not go on loan at Bristol Rovers last season it was the season before, Crawley fans would be happy for him to leave though, he is not good enough, and 100k would appear expensive for a player who only scored 1 goal last seasonImpress, you must be joking.
He was worse than useless

Byars38625DreamerHa ha ha ha ha haTheir flat broke!You clearly don't get it - you have no money - your creditors won't accept a CVA that sees them short changed just so you can buy players - it simply will not happen - you are now a selling club until you have paid your debts

Danny pilkington brother of ex Huddersfield winger Antony is set to sign for Huddersfield. He is currently playing for York city.(4)(28)Why post nonsense.He wasn't a regular in the York team last season and hardly made the bench.

Rivaldos agent still trying to persuade Powell that he can bring experience to Charlton - Powell will turn him down for the second time for sure!(8)(21)His is actually true but i hope it doesnt happenAs a charlton fan i would'nt mind this. i think he will score some crucial goals for us.I don't know why people say they don't want him, he's a footballing legend, just because he's not young anymore, does that mean you would say no to Thierry Henry, or Del Piero then?.....But Rivaldo is slow and 40?!He's three years older than Del Pierro and six years older than Henri, so yes I would say no unless he wanted to play for nothing!Brad freidal is 41 end of. What be a quality signingWhat a ridiculous point. Friedel is a goalkeeper and doesn't need to run around.The fact we dont want him is due to him probably wanting atleast 50k a week for someone wholl only last 60 minsYes he is a legend, so is Pele but would we sign him no, he's way past it.It's not a ridiculous point, the principal is the same, they are both old but brad freidal can still do it, goalkeeper or not he still has to dive and run etc"It's not a ridiculous point"

Yes it is, you cannot compare a central midfielder who may run 12 miles during a game with a goal keeper who may run a mile. Why do you think that goal keepers have longer careers?It really was a ridiculous point - goalkeepers can keep playing longer than outfield players regardless if they have to dive. Do you know anything about football?I can honestly say hand on heart I'd love pele in the team, he might be 60 odd or something but he is the best ever playerIts not a ridiculous point! You cant compare the work load, because there are strikers that are close to 40, midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers, the fact is he still has to run and dive around and jump etc for a 40 year old man is impressiveIt really, really was a ridiculous point - I laughed and then had to show my wife and then she laughed. Thank you for a good giggle

Burnley boss Eddie Howe has targeted Oliver Norwood,Jason Shackell and Stephen Dobbie has his main targets this summer(15)(17)Eddie howe said hes never been interested in Jason Shackell so why does everyone keep on saying it.Especially with derby put their asking price at 5 million because they only have one decent centre back with their captian out for a season so they wouldnt let him go would they.Dobbie will join Blackpool if they can pay the 1M asking Price and if not then Burnley and Birmingham will sign him"and if not then Burnley and Birmingham will sign him"

ohhh right ... do they get half each? shotgun his right foot.They are talking to Brett Pitman - fee agreed with Bristol City

Cheltenham midfielder Marlon Pack being lined up by league 1 new boy Swindon Town. Cheltenham will be offered players plus cash, the midfielder is keen to make the switch.(12)(12)Can hit the odd free kick but has the pace of a slug, nowhere near the class needed at SwindonPeople only link him to us because of his freindship with Ritchie. Swindon will not be signing Pack. They will sign Andy Williams on the 1st of July (Free agent on this date) and they are still in for O'Kane...apart from that PDC is being pretty tight lipped over his targets.Haha pace of a slug - you blatantly havent watched him play.

Marlon has also stated he wants to be at Cheltenham next season, and this was AFTER the play-off finalGonna be a top top player , still has a lt to learn and who better to learn that from than Di CanioMarlon Pack has confirmed that he will be staying at Cheltenham Town next season despite interest from Championship and League One clubs.Pack is out of Swindons price range he will go to Birmingham or maybe Peteborough who can offer guaranteed Championship football.Out of Swindon's price range?? what about what the player wants?Marlons agent is speaking swindon who wanna do a cash plus player deal , but Bristol city are also interestedWho needs pace when you have the vision and cant keep the ball moving like pack , the ball can move faster than any playerPack is not going to Swindon, he has stated quite clearly that he wants to be at Cheltenham next season, and if he were to go he could definitely do better than Swindon. How can you say that there is no one better to learn from than PDC when he already has MY?

Watford set to sign tricky winger Mustapha Carayol from Bristol Rovers for £600k. Gavin Massey and Adam Thompson to movenine other direction on season long loans. Deal to be completed on Wednesday.

Other news, ex Bristol city and Motherwell striker david Clarkson set to join Bristol Rovers, as is central midfielder Kari Arison, previously at Plymouth and Aberdeen.

Leicester boys Tom Parkes and Cian Bolger have agreed terms to rejoin on season long loans, deal finalised late Friday night .

Byron Anthony agreed 2 year deal with Yeovil, craig Stanley to rejoin Paul buckle at torquay and anyinsah set to join orient on a free.(4)(15)Buckle is at LutonBuckle isn't even at torquay!Typo... All true though. Watch this spaceWhat the he'll Byron Anthony is useless and kari arnarson no way would he join a league 2 clubSo why has he joined Hereford utd then !!Rovers fans thought andy Williams and Dom blizzard were both useless, and both have proved themselves at Yeovil.

As for muzzy, deal should me completed by Thursday pm my sources inform me.Mcghee had kari arnarson at aberdeen and he said he was excited to join back up with his old bossWatford won't spend that sort of money on one player, so think againWhy wouldn't Watford spend 600k on a player? We have the money for that easily!Seriously Byron Anthony is useless an if Yeovil make signings like him then league 2 is what will be destined toArnarson only joined Aberdeen at the start of last season,Mcghee had left Aberdeen months before that,SO FAIL.

Reading have turned their backs on carlos sanchez and mariappa after they were outpriced for the pair
MrRfc(8)(25)MrRfc, you've been saying for the last week that we've got Mariapa and Sanchez signed up and now all of a sudden, you're following the crowd saying we wont get either. Your sources are either full of it, or you are! AProperReadingFanThat was some person using my name
real MrRfc {Ed001's Note - and his IP has been blocked.}Probs a watford fan upset we are buying there best player. also the same fans who believe a bid has been rejected while the club just want them to believe they tried to keep him
MrRfcThanks Ed
MrRfcMrRfc if you actually had proper sources other than Readings tea lady or something you'd know that even the Watford paper are saying Mariappa is likely to join and that the 'rejection' is just to calm things with the fans.

Whats more, apparently the Sanchez deal is going smoothly, and that there are no such reports of him wanting 40 grand a week.But i told everyone about the mariappa and sanchez deal a long while ago. they will happen a fee has been a mariappa and he will have a medical when he returns from international dity
MrRfcSorry about that MrRfc, didn't realise someone had used your name, I have to say your rumours and news have impressed me so far, keep blogging mate.

 


04 Jun 2012 21:49:17
Watford have offered Reading £850,000 for striker Simon Church.(25)(17)Ha!! I'm sure the silent Watford fans at vicarage road would like him as a signing!!Quality player, honestly. so how much are we paying you to take him, cheers for mariappa
MrRfc850k? why waste that money when we still have iwelumo?Yes because the atmosphere at Reading really blows you away.... I've been seeing the stuff on here about Mapps for a few weeks now and I honestly don't know where Reading fans are getting their info from. I happen to know that Watford have received bids from Reading and ALL of them have been knocked back. So good luck to Aidy if you get him but I wouldn't be so confident if I were you! You'll find why nearer the weekend. Ta ta.Church would be a good signing for them as both are going nowhereMariappa will go to a bigger club. Not one like Reading who will be going straight back downAll sources, apart from the biased Watford fan who once worked for the local Watford rag but now works in Dubai, say that a fee was agreed weeks ago the only hold up is that Mariappa is away on international duty. He is due to play this Friday for Jamaica so we won't have any movement on this one till next week at the earliest.Been talking to a Watford season ticket holder who seems convinced he is going to Reading....

Michael Owen set to have talks with Southampton. A partnership with rickie lambert could ensure the saints safety in next years assault of the premiership!(10)(56)"Michael Owen set to have talks with Southampton. A partnership with rickie lambert could ensure the saints safety in next years assault of the premiership!"

Your defence needs strengthening if you want to survive.Not gunna happenThe man's fiinished, why dont people just accept it.
Form a partnership with Lambert? Ricky plays a whole season so that's never going to happen is it.Nahhh it would assure that Southampton pay Owen a ridiculous amount of money for sitting at home injured and Lambert isnt good enough for the Prem, too slow.Please don't be true!I do believe Southampton will be fine next season, but I cant see them going for Owen at all.Can't see this happening,love it to though
if Owen is finally injury free.Lambert isn't good enough for prem to slow, haha don't make me laugh just what everyone said about holt and lambert is better than holt^to answer that grant holt peter crouch yakubu have done alright with no paceI agree with other post we need more cover in defenceHe's quicker and more versatile than Grant Holt and he did ok!

We're used to people slating Ricky for being a big Centre Forward. People said he couldn't cut it in the championship, now the premiership. Player of the season in the championship is awarded that for a reason, regardless of speed or anything else, he showed the most quality in the whole of the championship last year and he will be just fine. Our problem will be stopping goals going in at the back, and making sure we don't get reliant on Ricky because he is THAT GOOD.Rickie Lambert is faster than Grant HoltLambert to slow??? He isnt that bad, but... Matt le tis slow player, amazing playerOwen no thanks to injury proneDont need owen we do need some more pace up front and i think saints should sign a new cb and rb and jack butland but thats almost a done dealI love all the know it alls making judgments on how saints will do or if Rickie Lambert can play at that level (I also suspect these comments come from arrogant fans of premier league teams that did not see Saints play in the championship last season). The beauty of Ricky lamberts game is that he is great in the air, good touch and a one of the hardest shots in the football league - he doesn't need to be fast.

Aides mcgeady looks like he could be swapping russia for England as his agent Andre wasicv said mcgeady wants to "be reunited with Martin oneil" talks have already begun I understand as Aiden wants to go into the euros with republic of Ireland with the deal done. Also Sunderland have been told by man city that it's either 10 million or a loans deal that will get Adam Johnson. Apart from that a couple of routers about signing abonghalhor or however you spell it but that looks doubtfull(19)(12)Would be great for sunderland if we got all three of them, a;ll quality attacking playersMcGeady and Oneill are both from the republic of ireland {Ed007's Note - McGeady is Scottish and O'Neill is from Derry in NI.}McGeady is a republic of ireland international

To clear up Reading's new ownership:

Anton Zingarevich is worth £650m.

His father, although not listed as a Director, did have to pass the FAPPT, as confirmed by Chris Samuelson, he may invest at a later date.

Boris Zingarevich's personal wealth as proved to Kroll (Kroll performed the financial assessments for the Premier League) is £4.1b

Confirmation of Boris Zingarevich's involvement comes from Chris Samuelson in a Daily Mail interview.

Boris Zingarevich's wealth you can choose not to trust but it comes from a very reliable source on.

Thanks,
Pea(14)(10)No-ones bothered about Readings ownership except Reading. The club seem to have delusions of grandeur^speak for yourselfNo-ones bothered about Readings ownership except Reading. The club seem to have delusions of grandeur

And you 'seem' not to know the difference between the clubs view point and a few high school kids going a bit OTT on a rumours web siteYikes, if this is true its got to be putting a bit of a dampener on the whole 'Reading to buy everyone' thing from the Reading fans. Still, being bought by a playboy son of a billionaire, whats the worst that could come of that situation eh? Happened to Pompey and they turned out just fine. Oh, hold on.....Suggest you wait to see how much of their "wealth" they are willing to commit to RFC.
I suspect you will find it is nowhere near what you expect."No-ones bothered about Readings ownership except Reading. The club seem to have delusions of grandeur"

If thats the case go and find something else to read/comment on. If your not interested why read it, just walk away and keep quiet.If your not bothered by it then why did you read it?They are already upgrading the academy this year to the highest level then if we stay up the plans to build the expansion to the stadium begin, if that + not having to sell our best players is all we get out of this deal for the next few years ill be happyEveryone has a right to read and comment on what post they choose. This just confirms that Reading are not "Billionaires" at all.Not a lot of premier league owners are billionaires though. Fulham's, Stoke's, Villa's, West Broms, Norwich's and Swansea's owners who were all midtable last season are not owned by billionaires. Even Dave Whelan who's worth around 200m has kept wigan in the premier league. Money isnt everything to how good you are. Look at Leicester, spent millions and got midtable in the championshipThe money isn't going all on players. We will continue to act in the Reading way which is right player right price. A lot of money will be put into improving facilities. What this money means is that Reading won't have to seek their best players every season because we don't want to be in debt like 90% of football teams. We now have financial security and yes whilst people may say "Well look at Portsmouth" Portsmouth's owners were not people who have a connection with the area and the club like Anton does.That first comment was a load of rubbish we have a multi million air now we buy will buy 7or so players

Other news, ex Bristol city and Motherwell striker david Clarkson set to join Bristol Rovers, as is central midfielder Kari Arison, previously at Plymouth and Aberdeen.

Leicester boys Tom(2)(11)This isn't true as why would clarkson want to come here, and don't think we will sell muzzy that easilyThat easily? 600k is probably more than we'll actually get for him. Think people are forgetting he's only got a year left on his deal and has only really had 6 consistent months of quality.Clarkson isn't spoiled for choice. A failed championship player, worked with McGhee previously, and he likes that rovers have a great history of producing great strikers. Deal should be completed by Thursday pm according to sources very close to the player

west ham will sign sunderland trio kieran richardson ahmed elmohamady and george mccartney. also exiting the wearside club is ryan noble who will join sheffield wednesday for a nominal fee. gyan will sign a permanent deal with al anin for a fee of 7.8m. stephane sessegnon will join french side psg for 14m. Sunderland will sign carlos cuellar (free transfer), steven fletcher (8m), gabriel agbonlahorr(4m), adam johnson (loan), diame (free)) nicky shorey (free) and matt phillips (3m)(12)(28)Phillips not leaving Blackpool FC this summer he has told me.You wont get fletcher for 8 million try 12 million wolves dont have to sell.Let's be realistic here, will Fletcher want to play CHAMPIONSHIP football next season! He will move to prem, maybe not necessarily to Sunderland though.Gabby will never leave the villa so think you should stay off the crack pipe,and for 4m ? what a total nutter you really are !!!I thought nobody won the euromillions on friday, I guess I was wrong obviously one of the west ham owners did.12m for fletcher?? he isn't that good, you got relegated and expect to get 12m for him your having a laugh, it will be 8m tops if your luckyI dont know why everyone is doubting flecthers loyalty he has been saying on twitter how much he wants to stayRelegated or not Fletcher won't be leaving for less than 10m. We paid 7m for him have no debt and no player clauses (like the Lescott agreement to Everton) so if he can score 10+ league goals three seasons in a row for rubbish teams like Burnley and I hate to admit it but Wolves twice then if you bid 8m I think Moxey will fall off his chair laughing, unless you're offering 8m + Carlton Cole, Mark Noble and Jack Collison?

BobbybuffonFletcher 22 league goals in 41 games thats up there with the best in the premier league also in a side thats battled against relegation for 2 seasons, so yes worth every penny of 12 million.Get it in to your head wolves want 10+ for fletch thats if mr moxey is being nice we can play hard ball with any team we wantWill want to make a profit on gyan so will not accept less than 10m sess will cost 17m+ will never pay over 8m for fletcher agbonlahor only scored 5 goals last year and single figures the season before so what makes you think he is worth more than 4m phillips would move to the prem like a shotDiane will not join Sunderland as there are Big clubs after him in England and SpainBecause he is a striker, not a wingerCity will NOT loan Johnson - it's a cash deal or nothing - City will listen to offers above 12 million for him.

It is believed that Liverpool are
planning to make a bid around the fee
of 10 million of Fulham's Clint
Dempsey as Brendan Rodgers wants
to add to his strike force as Liverpool
failed to score goals last season.
Rodgers would also like to bring in last
years loanee, Swansea player
Gylfi r Sigursson, snatching the
deal away from Swansea.(23)(17)Do that not break the spirit, if not the letter of liverpools deal,not to go afder swanse players ?Gylfi Sigydsson is not a Swansea player, he was only on loan to Swansea. So any deal for Gylfi will be between Liverpool and the current club that owns him which i believe is HoffenheimHe was on loan at Swansea from hoffenhiem,therefore contracted to hoffenhiem,so there is no breaking of the deal as he is not their player^^^ he is not a swansea player yet!Rubbish, if any other club wanted Gylfi he could go so why not Liverpool.He was not and is not a Swans player!Yeah but liverpool can still sign sigurdsson as he is not a swansea player yet!If Dempsey leaves Fulham it will be for Champions League - he has said so himself.Hmmm sigurdsson plays for hoffenheim :S whats your point?

 


04 Jun 2012 20:18:43
Bournemouth have had a £500,000 bid for Oxford's Peter Leven turned down.(2)(20)Joking, useless, not worth 100k.How much? Highly unlikely and would much prefer Bostwick to be the midfield enforcer we need to complete the jigsaw.Oxford could not afford to turn down 500k!! What nonsense. There si a good chance Leven will be leaving but not for that amounnt. 150k - 200k will see him leave.I think Bournemouth are after a higher standard of player and if this was true oxford would not reject half a million for any of their playersWould be a very good sighning for us if true,but not for 500k,more likely 150-200k tops

 


04 Jun 2012 20:15:11
Oxford are set to sign AFC Bournemouth's Wes Thomas having fallen out of favour.(5)(12)Your welcome to him really went down hill in second half of season couldent hit a barn doorCould be a possibility. With the recent addition of Mcquiod and Grabban we have good options up front. Completely lost his confidence to hit the net towards the end of the season but was unstoppable earlier on. Would like to see him stay but with Tubbs and Sheringham also pushing for a start his chances may be limited.I'll pack his bags and drive him over if that helps, big time charlie who couldn't hit a cows backside, car parks no problem.Swap for leven?Shame his touch had gone, work ethic and effort is second to none, not sure if he should go as i believe its a confidence thing. Bradbury tried to play him with Tubbs and it did'nt work, maybe we could give him some gamtime till Jan and then see!!Him and Tubbs are too similar a player and in my opinion wes is probably the better.

Bradford want Arsenal academy player Antony Jefferey on a season long loan deal. The pacey winger is what Parkinson is after. Jefferey may not be the only youngster coming on loan from Arsenal. PP used to work at Arsenal and has contacts with them. Barnet are also after Jefferey as it is more local to him but his preferred choice is Bradford.(3)(6)Jemaine Johnson is set to sign for Bradford City this week also Robbie Blake has agreed to sign for us too once he gets off his holidaysRobbie blake is not on his holidays.he was in the casino down the road at the weekend..fact. although would be a great signing for us.

Alistair Slowe in potential move to the Saints. Ex-Yeovil play maker is high on the wanted list of many clubs, but Adkins has expressed a desire to sign talented winger. Slowe is interested in the Saints.(3)(16)Im a massive saints fan, and i know this isnt true. southampton have stated there desire to only sign players with expierence for the new season.So why has he joined Hereford utd then !!!What is it with alistair slowe? he's st! If he couldnt get a game at yeovil, he wont get a game at southampton. YTFC fan

Rafael Benitez could be a shock replacement for Brendan Rodgers at Swansea.

The Spaniard is keen to get back into the Premiership, and is interested in a move to South Wales.

Meanwhile, Lee Clark could be set to take up the hot-seat at Carrow Road.(18)(26)Benitez wants money,cant see this deal going ahead....more chance of getting bruceAll you have done is state newspaper rumours, Lee Clark is not on Norwich City's radar, read the chairman's statement he is looking for a manager who has already managed at the top level, either in premiership or one of Europe's top leagues

 


04 Jun 2012 19:09:04
Southampton believed to be preparing a bid for young, English centre back Ben Turner of Cardiff City.(17)(16)Hope so. Would be a top signing.Doubt he would leave Cardiff

From a cardiff fanIm a cov fan and trust me this man will play for england one dayThis is an interesting one sees realistic he is only 23/24 has been consistant in the league and is one of the best in the league in his position. He would get into starting 11 defo. Good luck Southamption from cardiffSource? does seem realisticThis sounds a positive move for saints as we do need to strenthen are defenceWould be a regularly big price tag since he only signed last season. I'd say around 3-4 million, if the deal went through and if he wanted to leave. I agree with the comment above that he will be playing for England soon. (Cardiff fan)Good moveWould be a great signing if we could get him.I think this move is possible, but he will be expensive due to his contract and his potential I think southamption will look for prem proven over turner for now

 


04 Jun 2012 18:57:57
Davies of Barnsley to local rivals Owls in straight swap for winger Mike Jones and Left back Danny Jones (no relation)(3)(25)Why would Barnsley let the only senior
striker on the books go to another
championship club it,s a no go mateWhy would Barnsley want another left back when we have 3Stop posting rubbish.Davies having a medical at tranmere after the bank holiday ( i'm not a tranmere fan by the way)The only medical davis will be having is the
one prior to pre season training at oakwellDavies declared his loyalty to barnsley the other week saying that he promises he will play a better season for barnsley next season

Ex Bournemouth striker Michael Symes has agreed personal terms with Shrewsbury Town and will be announced in the coming weeks. The 28 year former Shrews striker will replace the outgoing James Collins.(11)(7)Can remember gus poyt saying he nearly killed our keeper when afcb drew 1-1 a with dean he like to put his weight aboutGT does not like signing ex players...so this is a no no..I heard Swindon were also in for him. Either way I wish him luck, he always threatened to be a good striker for us but for whatever reason it didn't quite work out for him hereNot a chance Symes will return it would be a backward step for ShrewsburyWhat about Asa Hall?Think Turner could really get the best out of Symes if he was here and kept fit. Can't quite see this deal taking place though.Symes is on his way to orient and collins rotherhamJames Collins has league 1 + championship. Why go to RotherhamCollins isn't going to Rotherham. Wishful thinking, I'm afraid.

Terry Dicon linked to Preston North End.
Has previously worked with Westley before and has been approached as a possible option to replace outgoing Hume(3)(8)Who ??? And hume isnt leaving i know this for a fact as he lives near meShould this be terry dixon not diconHume is not leavingHume is definately staying, stop making things up that are clearly wrongDixon isn't even Conference standard, no chance of this happeningHume isnt leaving......I know this for a fact......."AS HE LIVES NEAR ME"....classic, doesnt get any better than this comment as to why there are only 9,000 PNE fans left......Supidity!!Hume is not leaving? Oh yes he is!He's going back to his beloved Tranmere!Hume isn't leaving, just look on hid twitter account!I expect to see Hume play for Tranmere before his career is out, but there's no way they could afford him on his current PNE deal, which has two years to run.

Lets face it, if Ronnie Moore had any kind of budget, he would have been able to prevent both his captain and Player of the year switching to Deepdale.Lets face it, if it wasnt for Ronnie Moore Trameres Captain and player of the season would be in League 2....they were that poor. I bet Ronnie has his eye on some quality Bosmans, Free's & loans to get the team to the top half of League 1......Not 15th like some clubsHa 'his beloved Tranmere', thanks for that, I needed a good laugh

Michael Owen and Owen Hargreaves are to be offered one year contracts at Brighton. Arron McClean will have talks with Gus and Chairman when Poyet returns at the Weekend from Uruquay. The bad news is three clubs, Reading, Fulham and Aston villa are pursuing Bridcutt...£2.5 million has been put to the club!(5)(29)1. owen has said he wont join championship side prob off usa
2. hargeaves has hardly played in 7 years and will retireUtter rubbish,owen already stated he will only play in premierThis fool was comming out with this rumour last year lolJust plain daft if you think Owen or Hargereaves are Brighton bound although Bridcutt could well be on his way as Gus never stands in the way of a player progressing his career. He wont go cheap though - 3m with add-ons seems likely for a player Chelsea let go for nothingAnd as I said offers are being put to them! Hargreaves has never said he I retiring at the moment unless u have a hotline to him. Don't forget Bloom and Owen are very good friends so maybe a one year deal will suit him before he goes to the U S.Bridcutt? no way are we in for him, just b/c he was born in reading he gets linked to us?Neither of those would go to a championship team realistically. I like Brighton, a good club, great fans and a nice new ground but they wouldnt sign for you unless you got promotedOwen will probably join Stoke, Hargreaves will probably go to a foreign club, maybe in the US or Canada. If any club will sign Bridcutt, it would be Norwich, with their track record of raiding Brighton each season !I wish these two donkeys somewhere else what we need are thoroughbreds.

Derby County have offered Dundee United deefender Paul Dixon a contract but face big competition from Bristol City.(16)(3)Yeah your signing everyone think notGood player.He's going to Bristol

 


04 Jun 2012 17:56:51
Reading have made an improved offer for Bjrn Sigurdarson, but still not willing to meet 3m asking price
MrRfc(11)(5)We should just pay Lillestrom what they want. He looks a cracking playerYep but same old Hammond we never pay over the odds, even if we have the money :). 3m for unproven prem player is hefty but these are the prices we will have to pay now

Diakete has signed for QPR according to the the offical nancy website.. great singing(15)(3)Great news if he continues to improve like he was we have a world class player and with Ale coming back from injury looking goodHe has got a cracking voice!I've checked there site and nothing on there about itYou,ve got more chance of signing Holt from Norwich than Jaime Mackie from us.I have seen it, i am a bit upset with that but at least we are signing peopleSamba Diakite's twitter says he's signed.Why u upset samba diakite is a great player. Remember the last half of the season? Diakite was r best player . Great news, brilliant signing and a coup at 3MGood signing well done sparky & coThis isnt true. i just checked the AS Nancy website and they have nothing said about Diakite although the deal is close. Part of his loan contract to QPR was that if they stay up, they will have first choice in signing himI am upset because his runs are pointless the majority of the time and he was one of the worst players towards the end of the seasonPerson above obviously doesnt know what they're talking about.... players who make runs and go on dribbles change the game!I know people who make runs are gamechangers but Diakite is not, the ball always seems to be 2-3 feet ahead of him and he runs into the wrong places

 


04 Jun 2012 17:40:49
Oldham Athletic have offered a deal to out-of-contract Aldershot keeper Jamie Young. Young has been on Oldham's radar for a while, as current #1 Alex Cisak is wanted by a number of Championship clubs, and out-of-contract understudy Dean Bouzanis is understood to be considering offers elsewhere with the guarantee of first team football.(1)(6)If Cisak goes then Bouzanis will be the number 1 keeper. Payed a minimal fee for Cisak so 350K will be a good deal.Well...Jamie Young. 26yr old, 5'11" Australian-born England U-20 international of Sri Lankan/Scottish descent.
At least it sounds like he's a character.?But around 30% of the 350k goes to Accy Stanley

Barnsley's Craig Davies is set to join Tranmere on a long-term loan deal, to partner Ben Burgess(5)(29)What a fabulous dream:). Soon he'll be followed by Demba Ba with Newcastle paying his wages. Dream onWhat a potent force that would be!Why would barnsley loan out there first choice stiker to tramere give me stength with some of these daft rumoursMust be some truth behind it i've not stopped hearing them last couple of daysAnthony Kay to sign on loan this week, along with Danny Harrison and Chris Dagnall

Charlton Transfers:

Antonio (Reading)
Baldock (Loan with view of Permanent) [West Ham]
Andrews (Free Agent)
Coutts (If Andrews bid fails) [Preston]
Waghorn (Leicester)
Maguire (Sheffield United)
Quinn (If Antonio bid fails) [Sheff United]

2 players from a relegated top German side may also join(5)(22)Antonio is going to WednesdayAntonio has stated his wish to join Shef Weds on a full transfer once the clubs announce they have agreed a fee (I think we are close to selling him). He has family just outside Sheffild and has become best mates with wensdays liam palmerso happy to move northHas he put pen to paper for Wednesday thenHe's actually stated his wish to push on and make a claim for a starting roll in the premiership with Reading (check the official site)It's true he has said the right things about fighting for a place but he's prob 4th choice in his position and there's a player limit for premiership squads. He's on his way or he's out on loan despite making the right noises. All part of smoothing the way ti the destination he wants not where the club might push him. Mark my words hell end up in Sheffield sooner or later. It's just about the feeLet's be honest this isn't anything against Wednesday because it happens to charlton too, but players say they wish to sign all the time if they have a successful loan period and 1 time out of 10 they sign he'll go where he gets the most money and playing time and where he can play in the best team e.g if reading sell him and us, you and Swansea offer deals he'll 9 times out of 10 pick Swansea or the higher division teamIll be surprised if antonio gets in our 25. expect him to go to Shef Weds
MrRfcStill waiting for wednesday to come in with a decent offer, if they continue to drag their heels he will be off somewhere else.Coutts isnt going! charlton fan!Waghorn does not score enough goals!

 


04 Jun 2012 17:36:25
Charlton are favourites to sign Keith Andrews after the Euros. Chris Powell will also attempt to gain the signiture of sean wright phillips, this will most likely be a loan move for sean to try and find form.(4)(18)Charlton do not take long term loans, for Gods sake. If you were a Charlton supporter you'd know that.Charlton must be signing
150 new players for the
next season
must have millions to
pay the wagesWhat form,built a reputation on a name,been a dud everywhere.Mate its Shaun not Sean, if your going to make up rubbish at least spell it right.Hope its true heard celtic were looking,his agent must be good cause he is guff.

Eden Hazard: Chelsea complete transfer of Lille midfielder

Chelsea have completed a deal to sign midfielder Eden Hazard from French club Lille.
The Belgium international, 21, has agreed personal terms and passed a medical with the Champions League winners.
"He will join the club in July when the players return for pre-season training," a Chelsea statement read.
Hazard said: "I'm delighted to finally arrive here, it's a wonderful club and I can't wait to get started."(23)(7)

 


04 Jun 2012 17:29:03
Christian Jolley is a target for Reading FC as they were looking at him throughout last season. The want to build on Jolley and McDermott believes that he could be good back up for RFC's wingers. AFC Wimbledon are reported to have told Reading that they want £250k for the young and talented winger.

The Football 411(7)(7)Muist be a real Premier prospect for 250k!!
(Oxlade-Chamberlin cost 12m-says it all!)If we sign this fella he must be one for the future. I cant see him getting anywhere near the first teamGood player, lots of pace, villa scouts watched him this year, be sad if he leavesJolley is fit, strong and has plenty of pace, he will give 100% McDermott will improve him...and if he gets the opportunity he will score more goals than Oxlade-Chamberlin.Jolley is an absolutely sick player, can take anyone on easily. incredibly skillful. but lacks a final ball i.e. a cross, or a pass. his finishing is relativity good. got a season ticket at wimbledon so seen him all year

Now Malky Mackay has committed his future to Cardiff there will be a statement showing the intent of Mr.Tan and the club to get promoted. Mackay will have a large transfer budget (by championship standards) and his targets are:

Bjorn Sigurdson
Ricardo Fuller
Connor Wickham (loan)
Giovanni Dos Santos
Craig Bellamy (depending on the role Brendan Rodgers plans on using him)
Vladamir Weiss (loan)
Fabio (loan)
Chambers

Players he is looking to move on are:
Earnshaw
Parkin
Blake
Keinan
Gerrard(20)(33)Can Cardiff afford the 3.5 million Lillestrom want for Sigardursson?Thought he was pulling the plug due to your not wanting to change to playing in redMankey committed? He doesn't know the meaning of the word.Dream on,lolWell they put in an official bid of 5.5 for jay. Rodriguz

I'd love the City to get all of the above names but in reality we'd probably get 3 of them at best (due to other clubs wanting them). Personally i'd like to see B.Sigurdson, Connor wickahm and G.Dos Santos....Also Bellamy is always welcome back, if he decides to return!Parkin is off to Yeovil. Piece of Cake !! {Ed025's Note - nice one..Norwich fan here. Hope malky doe's stay he is a fine man and would be welcome back to NCFC any time. But in this world of money orientated decisions nice to have a man stand by his word. Good luck Cardiff you deserve to be playing at Carrow Road with Malky as your boss and in the Premiership"Good luck Cardiff you deserve to be playing at Carrow Road with Malky as your boss and in the Premiership"

I have nothing against cardiff or mackay but they are where they deserve to be, until they get promoted that's the championship.It looks like cardiff could will sign sigardurson on a 3year deal with a 3mil+ add onns....Glad parkin is in his way out, nice guy but not a champioship player!We'll get promoted this year hopefully we won't bottle it againDoes cardiff have the money for these transfers? Hell yes!
Yes the plans for the change for colour have been put on the back burner for a season, they will look at it again next season as after the inital up roar it has turned out that 75% of fans are in favor of the change!
An offical statement was made by the BILLIONAIRE owner that they are still fully committed to next season and the future of CCFC! they ain't going no where! and as said in another post an offical bid of 5.5M was in place for j rod!Official Rebrand statement today!!! We will be in Red at home next season but with it comes huge investment including new training ground , all historical debts cleared and the VT and TG's investment being turned into equity in shares. Cardiff City FC can now move forward debt free!!!! (and with a pretty handsome war chest!!)

 


04 Jun 2012 17:07:15
Jermaine Easter, andy dorman, David wright, Owen garvan, and Kagisho digkagoi have all been told they are surplus to requirements at Palace and will not feature next season, variety of reasons, some squad disruption, some poor performances. Palace looking to tie up a deal for a centre back and a striker by Thursday.

Jamie Mackie who is thought to be on his way from QPR is a target for Paul Jewell at Ipswich.He's tested the water with a 1.5 million bid(5)(23)Why would a first team regular be on his way out especially as he has just signed a contract extension, not happening at all and if he were to be going 1.5 mill is a jokeBiggest load of rubbish I've ever heard. QPR turned everton and west ham away, no way is he going to Ipswich.To true the guy is a gem,works hard,sparky wont be letting him goHe signed a new contract last weekBullsh#t, Mackie was runner up player of the season and just signed new contract til 2016, dream on carrot cruncherCarrot cruncher? Oh how we laughed at that..not. what a truly lame attempt at an insult.I live near Ipswich,support qpr,and can categorically state that Mackie WONT be going anywhere let alone a club in terminal decline like Ipswich lol

Derby county to sign

Rhys Murphy-Free Transfer
Aidy White-Free Transfer(5)(10)White will only go to derby if he has no ambition,lol, besides he's staying putStaying put lol.lEEDS ARE jOKE.Im not saying derby is what it used to be but leeds finished below us and have lost us 7 times in a rowWarnock said he doesn't expect him to stay but doesn't say he'll move, plus as a derby fan i feel this website is saying were signing alot of players that are high value/prem interest/high wages in which case its lies

Gylfi Sigurdsson does not want Reading return.Danny Murphy on way to sign for Blackpool on 1 year deal. Joe Allen would consider moveing away from Swansea. Scott Sinclair future also foggy. Kevin Phillips wants to join a Premier League club despite agreeing a one year etension to Blackpool FC, he wants to play his final year of his carrer in the Premier League. Marius Zaliukas on verge of Southampton move. Russell Martin staying at Norwich. Grant Leadbitter wants Premier League move also.(3)(24)Leadbitter signed 3year deal with boroGrant leadbitter signed for boro last week, canny rumours these like lolLeadbitter has only just signed for middlesburgh on a FREE from IpswichJoe allen would only leave to join rodgers at liverpool, which isnt allowed for a year, and as for sinclair, he can f offHoly craap you can read sigurdssons mindLeadbitter already went to Middlesbrough which just shows all of this is untrue .Leadbitter joined middelsboroughSo the fact that Holloway lets Philips stay in Brum Mon-Thurs and train at home, giving him amazing freedom & great pay matters for nothing? Stop playing football manager and get a grip. I would also think the fact that he said he loves the football, the manager, and the club and he has decided to spend his final year playing for Blackpool mean nothing?! Of course, I forgot, you said we're selling him so he's obviously gone.I never thought we'd have a chance of resigning Gylfi anyway. He's going to Liverpool as he is better than all the midfielders they have bar GerrardYour obviously wrong! Leadbitter went ages agoMichael Laudrup to be next Norwich Manager. Top league experience, hungry for success and would be a great stepping stone for him

 


04 Jun 2012 16:17:05
malkey has just said hes staying at cardiff and in even better news the owners are putting huge investment into the club which will be announced later this week.(21)(6)So that's Mankey off then. His word counts for nothing.It's true!Brendon rogers said he didn't want the Liverpool jobHe was never ruled out by the chief executive of liverpool Malkey was by the norwich chief executive. P.S Watford fans go away

Shwan jalal going to huddersfield in part exchange for Alex smithies plus 300 thousand pound? Source friend of jalal(5)(24)Even more rubbish even tho would be happy to see jalal huddersfield would never ever ever sell there goalkeeper for that cheapSeriously doubt Alex Smithies would go to BournmouthAre you having a bubble? Seriously? Smithies back to League 1, the division that we have been promoted from. If Smithies goes anywhere it will be PL, hopefully with us. Just needs a full season behind him.That is ludicrous Shawn jalal is our second choice keeper and smithies just got promoted

Mark Hudson is set to lead the exodus from Cadiff this summer by returning to either charlton or palace where he spent the best days of his career. Villa have also stated an interest in resigning whittingham(4)(22)No thanks, morrison is betterWhat's your source ? His best days have been in cardiff...I'm a Charlton fan and to be honest I don't recall his time with us with any fondness at all. No disrespect to the player, maybe it was not the right time but, he had some awful moments with us. I can't see us wanting him back and we have better centre backs now.Hudson was crap. he was a Palarse reject when he joined us and that showed. No way is this happening.Hudson was crap at Charlton. Wouldnt get in front of Cort or Taylor to partner MorrisonQuite the oppisite actually i heard that city were looking at morrison..again only speculation but there's no smoke without fire hey!I wouldn't be surprised if Cardiff were looking at Morrison, or lots of other clubs for that matter. However, I can't think of a single reason why he would want to go to a club that have been going nowhere for a long time, or why Charlton would consider letting him go there.

 


04 Jun 2012 15:34:02
Charlton are not going for Beavon as Powell has stated he wants high class players and osborne from brentford is a no as well . Quinn from sheffield utd is the more likely signing and Baldock loan will only happen towards the end of the transfer window as CP wants his own players.There won't be any activity or rumours till july 1st when the window officially opens.One signing going round is Delfouneso from villa which is more likely to be on loan but depends if lambert wants him or not and staling from liverpool is another rumour due to the shelvey deal.(4)(9)We have put in a double bid for Quinn and McGuire of Sheff Utd, i know this from sources in the clubAnd its sterling BTW, there is also a high possibility of him and other liverpoolies coming to us, along with inter milan as we have a loan deal with them that started years and years ago but they screwed us by taking great players from us and never sending us one playerAnd its sterling BTW, there is also a high possibility of him and other liverpoolies coming to us, along with inter milan as we have a loan deal with them that started years and years ago but they screwed us by taking great players from us and never sending us one player
-------------------------------------------------
They did screw us over by sending us Sorondo. Thats also why the deal ended when we got Relegated from the PREM.What great players have they taken from us ?Ahhh I didn't know the deal ended when we got relegated, my bad!Well we sent Michael turner to them on a six month exchange when he was 16, they also took other promising youths that haven't made it big because they went to Italian footie

 


04 Jun 2012 15:24:02
El Hadji Diouf to return to French football with Lyon and St Etienne interested as Leeds cannot match his wages he demands.(6)(11)How is this guy still in football? he is the worse person, he is 10 times worse then joe barton.....and him demanding wages is crazy he should be lucky to be playing, horrible person!! {Ed025's Note - he is a horror bag mate..between him, barton, and john terry,,i dont know who is the worst..He got relegated with doncaster how would he then go on to champions league football.THat is jokesIf doncaster could afford his wages so can leeds.Just made up stuff by an idiotEl hadji diouf what a joke never rated him

 


04 Jun 2012 15:19:28
McNally has stated that he is looking for a manager with "top-league" experience. This would rule out managers like Lee Clarke, Gus Poyet and possibly Chris Hughton. He also stated that it is a "European search", any idea on any European managers that would go to Norwich?(3)(2)I would try and get what players you've got at the minute to stay first because who wants to manage a team going nowhereHughton has Premier League experience and you won't get a big name manger has your a little fish in a massive pondHoughton has managed in top flight with newcastle silly boyWhy would it rule out Hughton. He managed Newcastle, quite successfully, in the Premiership?Rafa Benitez!Hughton managed Newcastle in the Premier League...pretty sure that is a top leagueOne year in management at Newcastle in the Premiership hardly constitutes as experience though does it.If you read this carefully I did say "possibly". Next time make sure you can read properly before criticizing.The last thing Norwich want is Steve Bruce whoose record on managing in the Premiership is awful {Ed001's Note - and yet he had Wigan finishing mid table, while Martinez had them in a relegation dogfight! Strange how Martinez is so highly rated by the media.}Completely agree with the last post! Never rated Matinez and do see why he's such hot property after a couple of abject seasons!

 


04 Jun 2012 15:10:43
Keith Andrews in set to join Charlton Athletic on a Free Transfer as his contract has expired with WBA, however no decision will be made until he and Ireland are finished at Euro 2012(7)(20)More likely to go to readingBeen in alot of London News PapersReading are interested in sanchez who is CM and andrews is CM so no he isnt going to readingHe's more likely to end up at Ipswich, where he was on loan until his WBA move, would be an automatic captain for the Tractor Boys

Aidy white is set join his friend Jeff

both Jeff Hendrick and hoping
for Aidy to shine.(6)(11)Must be true because you say fact,lol, NOTWhat a load of waffle, he will pick derby over newcastle and arsenal you plum!!! o.wNewcastle and arsenal dont want him.
The highest club that are interested is
bolton where he wasnt promised first team football and he felt that the club
will will take along time before its strong.
Ask him on Twitter who has made contact with him.Arsenal and Newcastle never heard so much bullDerby? No way.He will pick derby ever ANYBODY is the joke,obviously a wind up ,lolAs a derby fan i must say we wont sign him, yes newcastle were interest in him (dunno if they are now) but he could play for a bigger club, on top of that were apparently signing alot of players according to this website so nothing is fact until the deal is done.

 


04 Jun 2012 14:55:09

We need better than this to compete in the prem.I'm a Hearts season ticket holder but have family who live in and support Southampton. He played well in the Cup final but in general if you want to rely on someone getting sent off or scoring an og he's your man !Zaliuskas is poor the scottih legue is low championship high legue 1 i think jos and jose are much beter what a waste a money, hopefully this doesnt happen.

Bristol City have accepted 2 bids from burnley and unnamed league 1 club believed to be Bournemouth pitman agent with have talks with oth clubs about a possible transfer(11)(9)Pitman has been in talks with burnley aparentley colapsed not in a milion years will he come back to us at afcb.Whats the source?
i wouldnt mind having pitman back at bournemouth but cant see it happening after we've already signed 2 strikersYou are spot on with that comment.
Bret knows Burnley are a bigger championship club but he and his family love Bournemouth and apparently the new owners can match the deal offered by BurnleyBurnley aint spoke to pitman or his agent, so no talks have broken down...While Brett would always be welcome back at Dean Court, the last thing we need is another Striker.Since when are burnley a bigger championship club than bristol city? total rubbishSince always !Burnley HAVE spoken to Pitman and his agent.
A done deal when JR signs for Saints later this week.
Deal in the region of 1 millionBurnley are a miles bigger championship club than Bristol City. As shown by your previous 2 league finishes where as Burnley finished 12th, 8th and were in the Premier League the season before.Plus afc Bournemouth have had a bid accepted but I believe burnley have offerd 10k a week which afc bournmouth won't match so he could join burnley but u never know

Richard Brodie to start season with Crawley again.(6)(4)No Chance he is on the transfer listRichard Brodie is contracted to Crawley Town until June 2013 - see Crawley club website 8 May 2012 "Retained List". No reason why he shouldn't be part of Crawley's plans for next season.Don't see it. Only played in the conference. If Brodie had nothing to do with Crawley they wouldn't be going for him if he had been released from a conference club. {Ed003's Note - ?? I'm not getting you??, he already is a crawley player,he was out on loan last year}Yes already a Crawley player, but because of Crawleys rapid rise, he last played when they were in the conference (the highest level he is done) and Crawley are now in league 1). If Brodie had signed for say 5 years and Crawley found themselves in the premier league, again, why would you play him simply because he is there when the conference is the highest level he has played at.

Swindon town to seal signing of reading striker Mathieu Manset on a 2 and half year deal this week.(14)(10)Two and a half year deal in the summer? seems pretty stupid to sign someone who's contract we finish in January. I wonder if someone is lying.Half year deals only occur for january signings... whilst the signing itself may happen, the contract length you have made up is rubbish...They won't get Morrison for 250k. Double it at leastWhy do people write so much rubbish on this page with all the player Swindon are so say signing we could field a different team each game.

Glenn Belezika from oldham and Adrian Cieslewicz of Wrexham will sign for peterborough in the next few days.(1)(7)Alex Cisak then?Belezika, haha he has only made 1 sub appearance for latics so i can't imagine a champ club would want him just yet, so i think your getting him confused with someone else i.e. cisak

 


04 Jun 2012 13:45:55
Stevenage are very interested in signing Andre Gray and Benik Afobe. Should they fail to bring either one of these players in, they will go for James Constable.(2)(12)Afobe dream on....Not a hope of getting afobe - he was at my team, royals on loan from jan 2012 to end of the season - he was ok, still a bit raw - i think he'll do ok but reckon arsenal will loan him to championship team for the season

Sam Baldock - West Ham - Loan
Darren O'Dea - Free(18)(18)The Sanchez move to Reading is definitely on, trust me250k For morrison? we wont sell him to you for less than we bought himSam Baldock will remain in London or the South, could be a loan deal with Ipswich or CharltonI'm a town fan and no way will we be getting Morrison for that low price.250k for Morrison?! More like 750k!What about lafferty ?Itll take 500-750k to sign morrison at leastCan see basically all of these happening, except prices are a bit low on most of them, and replace darren o'dea with kyle laffertySam baldock would be greatYou wont get Sam Baldock, linked with the league one champions Charlton and if he's stupid enough to choose the team that finished 20 points behind them then hell fit right in at uddersHave him hes rubbish

Two weeks ago ,but has yet has not been anounced his agent is John Terry's brother

Bradford City have today agreed a £75k fee with Mansfield Town for striker Matt Green, who scored 29 goals in 44 appearances at Conference level last season. Green is set to sign a 2 year deal with The Bantams, as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Ex Huddersfield Town defender Nathan Clarke has also been offered a contract at Valley Parade.(7)(12)Bullst mate!! Green has got a 2 year deal with us and he even said he is not going anywhereI'd be delighted if Nathan Clarke signed for Bradford. Think he might be on too big a wage but defo worth enquiring! Mcardle Davies Clarke Parker would be a very good back four.

Newcastle are stepping up their efforts to sign Anthony Pilkington from Norwich.They have had a bid for the player rejected but will be going back in again.(10)(30)Leyton Orient are set to sign Tommy Caroll, who is desperate to return to London. Orient Manager Russell Slade wants Carroll on a long term lone to replace Matt Spring who is having talks with a Div1 club.The pilkington move is likelyReally cannot see newcastle even wanting pilks. did a good job for norwich when he played! but spent most his time on the bench towards end of the season. think newcastle have the sights a bit higherHe is not for sale, so Newcastle need to look elsewhere

 


04 Jun 2012 12:31:43
reading are closing on deals for marriapa of watford and Carlos Sanchez who is a free agent(20)(8)Reading have walked awayThey havn't walked away. its all rubbish. deal agreed weeks ago just waiting for him to come back from international dutiesReading have pulled out of the deal to sign watfords marriappa. Malky at Cardiff when hearing about the deal stepped in as he does not have any targets. He just watches Watford players that become available.

 


04 Jun 2012 12:28:07

Reading FC have walked away from deal for Watford's Adrian Mariappa. Second improved bid of nearly £2m incl add ons was rejected.(9)(16)Bid was accepted weeks ago. Medical will be completed after Mariappa returns from international duty.2 bids rejected and walked away, Alan pardew expected to make 4 mil bid after having a 3.5 mil bid rejected in JanuaryMariappa to sign for reading after returning from playing for the Jamaica national teamBid was rejected. just hopeful reading fans saying the bid was accepted.Even the local Watford paper doesn't believe that the bid was rejected. It's just Watford trying to appease their fans by saying "Well at least we tried to keep hold of him" when Readibg sign him. It's just hopeful Watford fans who think that the bid was rejected.Bid was accepted, 100%
MrRfcDon't want Shorey back and if Sanchez wants 40k a week, then we don't want him either. It's vital that the wage structure is maintained. It's what Reading are aboutHope we get Sanchez, but agreed he is not worth 40k/wk at the moment...but at some point 'the Reading way' will have to change if AZ's 5 year plan is to come to fruition. We won't get to be a top 10 club without spending more than we do right now.

 


04 Jun 2012 12:04:29
jono forte of southampton set to join notts county for a fee of around 300k as saints look set to clear out squad players allowing them to get a 25 man prem squad set up(14)(12)This one is quite probable, and another 3/4 to follow. No disrespect to the players involved, but if they are not going to be used on the pitch in the Premiership it is only fair they are moved on to somewhere where they can be fully utilised and to continue with their careers.Forte will certainly be leaving. He had one good game since joining and wasn't even in the squad at all last year.That one good game was a really important one too. I thank him for that!I'l thank him for leaving.If Notts County had 300k to spend, they would not spend it all on Jonny Forte. 75k tops.75k he isnt that badGood luck to himI wouldnt spend 300k on forte. 150k more like. i doubt we have 300k to spend anyway.

 


04 Jun 2012 12:03:06
Norwich have made an approach to former Huddersfield manager Lee Clark(24)(30)Have you not read anything Mcnally has said?McNally has stated that he is looking at candidates that already has experience managing in premier or top European league so that would make your rumour very unlikely.Sounds like steve mclaren

Former Nottingham Forrest winger Paul Anderson to sign for Blackpool today.(18)(2)

 


04 Jun 2012 11:46:28
Morecambe's Laurence Wilson set to join Bradford.(2)(8)Thought he could have at least gone to a progressive team rather than sidewaysHe's gone to a bigger club mate, first time for alot of seasons we have a bit of money,watch this space shrimp face!It isn't a sideways move. Its a backwards move.Bradford ought to have some money. They must be selling season tickets for the 2017/18 season by now.We could sell them too as we actually have a fan base jealousy is a terrible thing!Well with a population of over 500,000 compared with 46,000 it would be surprising if you didn't sell a lot more season tickets. But we don't have to sell them years in advance or give them away !Despite a granted fan base which generates money, you are still down with the paupers of the League. Something must be going badly wrong, season after season after season.

 


04 Jun 2012 11:45:28
Luton are to announce the double signing of Chris Zebroski and Craig Stanley from Bristol Rovs in the next week. Enoch Showunmi is also a target if they miss out on Jon Shaw. Kidderminster's Dave Hankin and Stevenage's Ronnie Henry also on Buckle's hit list.(10)(8)

Yousseff Mulumbu (West Brom), in talks
Nathaniel Clyne (C Palace), in talks
Yacine Brahini (Rennes), handed in transfer request(13)(20)Can't be a backward step? Albion are established and Shorey played a role in that. If newly promoted reading fans believe they are on par with 10th placed baggie they will have a shock next year!!

Readings move for Carlos Sanchez is on the verge of collapse as he wants £40K a week and Reading are not willing to give him that much. Reading are also looking at former Royal Nicky Shorey the left back having recently been released by West Brom. They are also considering competing with Aston Villa for the signature of Grant Holt.(11)(19)We are going to have pay the money to get the players to compete also shorey backward step not good enough for WBA not good enough for usSachez will sign
MrRfcShoreys shocking from an albion fan thanks for long tho ;) and shorey would be alrite for you lotI know you have new investment, but there is no way you will be paying any player 40K a week, your management have already stated that they will invest but wisely likme Swansea and Norwich last season, so stop thinking you are going to do a QPR and throw stupid money about, and QPR have thrown stupid money on players apparently Barton is on 60K a week which still has four years to run which represents 11M+
I for one do not think he is a great player more a solid premiership level player who also has major baggage and a red mist problem.I would resign Shorey on a one year deal with the option of a further year, he's quicker than Ian HarteShocking for albion but ok for reading - erm and how have you fared against us in the past 3-4 games- oh yes you lost 1-0, 3-2, 3-2 and drew 2-2Agree that although we have the invested we wont pay silly wages like qprYou obviously havent seen shorey run for a long time then mate hes shocking

 


04 Jun 2012 11:33:43
Preston North End will sign Franois Zoko in a two year deal(12)(17)He was the best forward seen at Deepdale last season. Let's hope it happens.Yeah he was the best that played us .. But .! We were very bad last year .. Very badAnd lets all hope that it continues like that...I cant see Zoko dropping down to a team that finished 15th (below Carlisle) He will be looking for a Championship club to take a chance on a league 1 journeymanWhy , let's all hope 2 us 2 fail ? He knows he goin team that will be up there challenging ,, not makin the numbers up like our Cumbrian friends ..!!Challenging......Challenging for what? Your all new PNE team hasnt even kicked a ball yet and after the dross that Westley brought in at Christmas, what makes you think that he will get it right with players who were at best average from Yeovil & Tranmere. Why should you suddenley become a good team overnight....If it was that easy, every club would sack off all it's players and bring in a whole new team.....oh wait, that's exactly what you have done......League 2 here you come.U say all the players we got & getting , average .. Does zoko come into that category .. Average ? All I said ,,, we were bad last year . Anything gotta b better ..so therefor & poss challenging ? But I'll b watching for all the mega signings in this div1 & if u check , ull see all these signings were offered contracts by there clubs !

Reading could be a top 8 club be it depends on what the new owners do when madejski is out of the picture(11)(36)Any club could be be top 8, all depends on results not your investments.Reading will never be a top 8 club for as long as you are in the premiership and that may only be 1 season but if more you will always be fighting relegationToo many of you Reading supporters trying to run before you can walk.

Your club needs to survive the first couple of seasons in the Premiership-that is your priority. Both Reading and West Ham will struggle to do that."Reading will never be a top 8 club for as long as you are in the premiership and that may only be 1 season but if more you will always be fighting relegation"

And man city will never win the title, oh they did. Anything is possible and things do change.You say too many Reading FC fans are running before they can walk, but on this forum it seems that more people are writing us Royals off. We work well as a team, We have a club in next to no debt compared to other clubs in the prem, and we have an amazing manager that scouted players for us such as Kevin Doyle.Instead of poking your unwanted nose into what Reading are doing worry about your teams . Jealous of how well we are doing? Investors who care? Players that have passion? Top class manager?And Southampton...sorry Lambert FC won't?Is that the Keven Doyle who got relegated with Wolves ?, hardly a stand out player in premiership.

Stating that you can be a top 8 club is plain stupid and making your club a target from other clubs supporters.
Southampton supporters are also talking like they are world beaters and that they appear to be signing everybody, similar to your own fans comments.
Leicester supporters were full of themselves last year and throwing money around like confetti and where did they finish.
Your target next year should be exactly what Norwich & Swansea wanted,to finish 17th or higher,anything else was a bonus.Who are they going to replace in the top 8 haha? You could say that about my team Newcastle but they replaced Fulham who aren't/weren't exactly touchThe point you seem to have missed at Reading is you may have new investors but you have yet to see the colour of their money in terms of new players and facilities to help you in the Premiership.

You don't have to look far to find other clubs who have suddenly become excited about the chance to be another Chelsea and find they turn out to be a Portsmouth!
So, yes, walk before you can run, because otherwise you may fall flat on your face.Reading were 8th last time they were in the premier league so no point saying we will be in a relegation battle cause you don't know that.Pretty sure we finished eighth in our first season in the premiership, although we had a better team then, we have a decent amount of money now.'Is that the Keven Doyle who got relegated with Wolves ?, hardly a stand out player in premiership.'

Kevin Doyle was the 6th top scorer in the PL with Reading in 2007, so you can't really say he wasn't a decent player. Besides, the commenter was referring to the SCOUTING of Kevin Doyle, who McDermott found out of nowhere and brought him in from Cork for 80k in 2005.Last time Reading were in the Premier League you got relegated, the season before you finished 8th. I dont think Reading will be a team that will finish top 8 every season.Honestly as a Reading fan myself id take survival. But Brian McDermott is probably one of the most underrated managers in the country. He has an amazing eye for a player, is a great tactician and has a great personality. I dont think we'll get top half but an 11th or 12th placed finish is realistic if we sign the right players. I cant see us challenging for europe in the near future but I don't think we'll be in a real relegation scrap eitherThis argument is stupid. Have to wait to see how we spend the money before you can say we're waste it. Also awesome players/managers come from reading e.g. Alan Pardew- Your newcastle manager

Sky Sports Football News are carrying a report that a number of clubs including Bristol City and Huddersfield are tracking Brighton's Calderon.(8)(13)Great player hopefully Brighton will keep hold of him.Going to either of those clubs would be a step backwards for him. And that's coming from someone who doesn't even like Brighton!{Big G Voice} Good cover fullback but we need a more talented player who can defend and get back quicker after getting forward. scored some important goals. verdict good but still requires some one better, rather have a new centre defender.Bristol city is not a small club, bigger fan base than BrightonBristol can have all the fanbase it wants but if they don't go to matches it doesn't matter a fat lot. Average last season was 4K per game less than Brighton. Hope you get your new ground before the old one falls down about your ears - it's going to be a close run thing!Lol are you joking bigger fan base we just sold 23000 seeason tickets ground extensiono 32750 by next season and we will fill itBristol city took over 10,000 more fans to the play off final than Brighton! So how u goin to sell 37,000 every week! Wake up!Bristol is alot closer to Cardiff than it is for Brighton which explains why there may have been a few more Bristol fans. Anyhow, I was there - Leon Knight, Knight Knight!You took more fans to the play off final because we had to travel 6 times the miles compared to Bristol city and we still out sung youHuddersfield are on the rise trust me, more money than both these clubs, bigger fan base and historyWell Bristol only being about an hour away from Cardiff and Brighton being about 5 hours away, swap the distances around and we will see who take moreThe play off final was at wembley not cardiff and if im not mistaken brighton is alot closer to london than bristol is and also were getting a new staduim just like you did but we didnt have to play and some rubbish athletics ground for yearsBristol city bigger fan base then Brighton lol really is that a jokeThe play off final was in cardiff when wembley was being redeveloped you obviously did'nt go because then you would of known and secondly we had to play in athletics ground because for well 2 years we played in gillingham because we had no ground you sir are are wrong

You heard it first(11)(26)Gunter going to reading if he has ambitionReading fans, comments like the last one will only alienate all other supporters, according to you lot if Gunter comes tyo Norwich he will lack ambition ? , why because we finished 12th last season, just stick to rumours not slagging off other clubs, and be satisfied to just survive last year.Second season syndrome, Norwich will be down next season.

Reading (a yoyo team) is a smart choice

Possibly Everton, tied in with the George Green deal?(2)(5)If everton it will be someone like femi orenuga who was at accrington last yearOrenuga isn't a CB. It will probably be a very young player seeing how Duffy is definitely in Moyes' plans.

Steve EFCAlso, hasn't Orenuga now been released?Hope it's Andre Wisdom from Liverpool. We need a right back and he can cover centre half too

Peterborough have had a bid rumoured to be £1.4m plus add on's accepted by Dundee United for the transfer of Johnny Russell to the championship club. Russell will link up with ex Dundee team mate Danny Swanson at Posh.(6)(12)You have to offer a striker awell in exchange so this wont happen.Derby county had a 1 million pund bid turned down and were told this and they came back with 800k + Chris maguire and ad ons such as 150k for promotion on his first year and this is being discussed.

MK Dons have accepted an offer of £300k from Peterborough for striker Dean Bowditch(4)(13)No they haven't. None of our players are for sale (unless it's silly money, and 300K for Bowd's isn't in that category). Darragh's more interested in paying legal fee's than transfer fee's right now.One has to admire in amusement, the determination of the Posh fans to their utmost to upset the MK Dons' fans... how sad.Now that is funny!Well that's rubbish haha none of our players are going to Peterborough pipe down.Dont be daftBowditch to sign for Peterborogh-haha don't make me laugh-he is far to good for POSH people like youMK Dons shouldn't even be in the league. They merely hi-jacked Wimbledons league place.Bowditch is a load of rubbish. If he did join us then it would be a very sad day for our football club!Don't be silly he should sign for posh.
He dose not deserve to play for mkd, from my piont of view mkd should not be playing in the league they should of started from the very bottom instead of stealing AFC Wimbeldon's place in the league.Why would posh want bowditch ? oh dearBowditch no chance signing for posh. He's too good for them! People need to get over it, we're in the league and it doesn't matter how we got there people need to move on and stop worrying about things which do not concern them!If you think Bowditch is too good for us then you know nothing about football!Give it a rest with the mk nicked the spot! Im an ex wimbledon fan and the club got saved, the fa then pissed it up! Afc created two whole years before hand!Wimbledon did not get saved. Their place in the football league was taken by a a club with no connections to Wimbledon who saw it as sheer opportunism to get a place in the football league without working through the system like any other new club. Every other football fan I speak to as I travel the country, without exception, have the same opinion despite what gloss you wish to put on itI agree with your comment regarding Wimbledon, it has been hijacked by those who have nothing to do with the club. The sooner Afc stop claiming the history to a club they started abandoning in 1991 and by 2002 denied even existed only have themselves to blame. You tried to kill the club, you failed, get over it and stop blaming others for your failure to support your club at its time of need. If you had, maybe it would have survived near where it was.'stealing AFC Wimbeldon's place in the league'

This is where you guys let yourselves down, you don't even know what happened.No one likes us - we dont care! We are MK super MK, we are MK Dons FC!


Stop worrying about what the MK Dons are doing and worry about your own team pal.

Oh and Alan Smith still mulling over Dons contract - Few other offers on the table but he does love the Mighty Dons!!Haha we didn't 'hi-jack wimbledon', we saved wimbledon from going bankrupt - get your facts right! haha8 years people give it a rest its done and all ya handbags wont change it. When or if AFC ever play us we will see who berty big balls is

Peterborough wonder kid Jaanai Gordon-Hutton is the subject of £5m bids from Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal.(4)(17)He's not even played a game for Peterborough yet?I think he won't go to any of them not yet, he would want to play in the first team week in week out, not watch from the stands.Yet Arsenal do have some form with this type of young player - just look at Walcott and that other lad they signed from Southampton.

Peterborough has offered left back Scott Griffiths to Cheltenham as a make weight in a deal to take Marlon Pack to London Road(6)(9)What is this with the Peterborough / CTFC love in, none of our players are going no whereIf none of your players are going no where that means all of your players are going somewhereWell said!

Bournemouth player Marc Pugh will join Peterborough in a player + cash deal. The fee is rumoured to be £500k + Grant McCann(5)(11)Peterborough have more fans on here than they have for home gamesI dont think most of these rumours are started by our fans.(IF) Pugh leaves it will be to an established Championship team. AFCB and P'boro will be swapping places next season and would not be surprised to see Pugh stay with us.Bournemouth are not even an established league 1 team yet!Pugh will be leaving us, either this summer or Jan. He is not daft enough to go to P'Boro, his sights are either top championship club or stay put... i think he's going anyways. UTCIADNot established in league1 ? we have been in it for about 15 of the last 17 years lol

Chapman, Leven and Constable will all leave Oxford. Constable wanted to stay and has shown his loyalty on more than one occasion, however Wilder feels the time is right for him to go, mainly because he feels he can replace him for a lot less than the current fees being mentioned for him. Chapman will only resign if there is no way out and clubs are now becoming aware of this, any fee set by trbunial will be very small so this is quite a blow to the club. Leven is a bit of a surprise, however expect some good bids which Wilder will except, again he will be expected to replace with only part of the fee recouped.
Oxford will however sign Shaw, this has the potential to be a very good signing.(1)(13)Jon Shaw will not move from his home near Newcastle.
Likely destination is Hartlepool.
Leven is having an op on a problem with his shoulder he has suffered with since boxing day.
So whose going to pay a good fee for someone injured, who only has one year left at Oxford, and was a free agent last season?
And it's 'accept' not 'except'Oooo sorry me lord! us peasant type folk do make a mistake sum tims ya no!! So what you are saying my oh so accurate freind is that really it's not worth keeping him then? Injured and soon out of contract....for starters the injury is not one that will threaten hi s career and secondly the fact that he will be out of contract means that this is the clubs best chance of recouping something is it not? Hope there is no errors in here my sire.

04 Jun 2012 08:44:32
Paul Lambert to have 1 good season at Villa then will be the next manager of Man Utd once Ferguson retires. Lambert to this point has only used clubs to further his career, has no loyalty on that front only that he wants to manage at the highest level. Villa fans are deluded in thinking he will stay there, he will do the same to Villa as he has done to all the clubs he has managed so far. So , my money is on Paul Lambert taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson next season. Watch this space.(17)(33)Obviously a bitter norwich fan,lolYou are kidding right. There are five people that have a chance to replace SAF. Mourinho, Pep. Outside of those two Moyes, Ole or Giggs. Lambert thats the funniest thing i've heard all day. Maybe Spurs one day but never Man Utd. They would already have a plan in place and I can guarantee it's not Lambert.Sounds like a bitter norwich fan just remember what he has done for you and the division you was in when he took over he deserves to manage a big club like villaLoL at the dissilusioned man who wrote this post. I agree with the above comment Fergusen's replacement will be one of those five. My money's on Moyes (Fergusen is a big fan). Or Giggs (Rumour of support from players to have Giggs take over when he and Fergusen retire).It will take more than a season to get Villa back on track!I thought steve bruce was taking over fergie as he working close with him now at old traffordThink guardiola is nailed on for the job as saf will move upstairs after next season and guardiola taking a season out as for lambert think villa is his level at the moment but i could see him getting a big job in germany in the future if all goes well at villa as for norwich ye want to pray some of the rumours in the north east are not true cos relegation will be nailed on with bruce as next managerVilla are a club living on past glory! Paul Lambert had a fantastic time at Norwich and should be thanked with best wishes for the future. He will not be content at Villa, the chairman won't back him, why did they loose Martin Oneil? When Lambert gets as far as he can or a better offer comes along he will be off! One of the big four may take him, what links with Man U did Fergie have when he took over? So don't be sucked into thinking a replacement will come from inside. They will take the best man for the job and Lambert fits that mould so it's not so far fetched!How bitter he has done a great job for your club im a saints fan adkins has done a fine job for us and if he ever choses to leave if a bigger club wanted him id say he deserves it for the job he has doneI dont even think villa will stay up next seasonYou can't pencil a manager of his calibre because if he fails with Villa he won't even get a job with a mid table premier league teamVilla a big club?? now who is being deluded! villa will be relegation candidates again next seasonIf PL has the kind of season that earns him the United job then I think most Villa fans will be extremely grateful for turning the club around. Obviously this would also make the club an attractive proposition for the next elite manager to carry on developing a neuvo-top-4 side.
To be fair I think it is unlikely - but if the season proves the bitter NCFC fans right - then I will be happyThere is only 1 manager that is going to Man Utd and that was agreed many seasons ago. David Moyes has only stayed at Everton due to the knowledge that once Fergie retires, he will take over.Bitter canarie me thinks,you would still be in the wilderness without lambert,and why has he got to be loyal to any club,owners have no loyalty,so stop spouting crapUnless he wins the capital one cup + FA cup +Premier League and United get relegated. Then he may get the job if he is lucky

Millwall defender Alan Dunne is having talks with Stevenage this week. Meanwhile Millwall are to make a surprise bid for West Ham striker Sam Baldock.(0)(10)Dunne wouldnt leave millwall, he's a one man club so i dont know where you got this from. Also west ham wont sell Sam baldock to us!I will drive dunney there myself! im afraid that he is not a championship player! & baldock is an average player! coylDunne has become a liability, not Championship standard, behind Jack Smith in the pecking order now Malone will be playing left back - good move for all parties IMO; do they want Barron as well?We live and hope, I'll pay for a helicopter!Dunne and Forde have been our weak links for years!They both know the crowd are on them,Wont be sorry to see them goBy the way when i said we live and hope i was talking about dunne, at least barron tries

United to reinforce soon hope to see some sensible reinforcements
GK - Vorm
LB -Baines
CM - Gaitan and Eriksen
ST - Defoe and/or Huntelaar(8)(25)Defoe is a must, and if they do get gaitan and Eriksson that would mean they are back on track.
But I have been told united have no money to spend after capture of kagawa and Powell so unless Fergie sells no more coming in.Go for huntelaar,gaitan/eriksen only we don't need baines,vormor defoe because we have de gea,lindegaard.

Wolves strikers Jake Cassidy & Leigh Griffiths have emerge as Peterborough United targets. Posh also want Freddie Sears(5)(10)Doubt Cassidy we see him as a talent for the next few years n after bagging 7/8 goals in 3 months of 1st team football I'm sure he will play apart in our squad this seasonIf he is scoring that many goals then I don't think he will come to posh.

As a Reading fc fan I'm concerned that marriapa is waiting to see if any other offers come in before deciding on joining us this isn't the Reading way. We buy players that make us their first choice
Plus all this talk of money and how rich we are is making us look stupid in here
So please Reading fans lets keep it realistic. We will buy if it's right for the club. Not for buying sake.(6)(9)Marriapa is on holiday. There is a fee agreed but everyone thinks it has been rejected due to SSN being slow. He will sign in 2 weeks. I think we are all talking money due to this never happening before.Agree with you totally on wanting players that actually want to play for you. as a saints fan i will be disappointed if rodriguez doesn't join but if we're not his desired choice then its for the bestIt is now being rumoured that the deal has fallen through after Watford rejected a 2mil +add ons, seems the ball is in your courtWe will not spend madly players got us up will b given chance if goes wrong then in jan panic button will b hit and big money will b spentWe will put in a second bid for marriapa around 3.2 million. And they should accept it. His is one of our main targets as we try to strengthen our defence.Mariappa is not worth over 3m. 2.5m should get him I think or id tell Watford to get screwed

Mk Dons are in talks with former Loanee Alan Smith who has been released by Newcastle and former Norwich defender Zak Whitbread

Former MK Dons player Aaron Wilbraham is rumoured to be in talks with league one side Walsall(15)(6)Bearing in mind Whitbred supposedly wanted more than 16 k a week at Norwich, hence his release, I can't see him signing for MK Dons unless they are prepared to make him their highest ever paid player as well as give large rsies to all their other squad members!
Whitbread has been linked with Villa (no surprises there), Sunderland and QPR.Whitbread got released because he is very injury prone nothing to do with wages.MK Dons will not offer any player more than 2.5K per week2.5k a week thats rubbish, we offered alan smith 6k"we offered alan smith 6k"

Did you not read the papers at the time we did the loan from Newcastle? We have a self-imposed wage cap of 2.5K per week (despite what you may have seen on Football Manager ;-) ), and would not break it for Smudger. Nothing has changed in the last six months.

 


04 Jun 2012 02:26:24
MK Dons are looking to sign free agent Izale McLeod for the second time. They sold him for £1.1 million five years ago and want him back as they build for another promotion push. Last season they lost Sam Baldock and Charlie MacDonald failed to deliver enough goals to get them the promotion they crave. The fans think Izale can fill the void left by Baldock.(12)(6)This is true. Izale on his way to the mighty Dons, Macdonald is no good, terrible stiker.

Barnsley are looking at

Defenders -
Jacob Walcott
Aaron Martin
Liam Moore
Miles Addison
Tamika Mkandawire

Midfielders -
Richard Chaplow
Therry Racon
David Bell
Craig Forsyth

Strikers -
Karl Sheppard
Robert Hall
Callum Ball
Nouha Dicko
Mamado Bagayoko

All are in the championship which is what keith hill is looking for. Even tho some are far fetched for Barnsley Keith thinks they would go well with the clubs dynamics(11)(21)Jacob Walcott is a striker...Richard Chaplow and Aaron Martin are now in the a premiership with Southampton FCKarl Sheppard is a Reading player so not from the championship. You may get him but only on loan.Martin and chaplow are premier leagueChaplow isnt in the championship and would never go to barnsleyTamika Mkandawire is one of our best, most vesitile players but unfortunately was out injured most of last year! No way KJ would let him leave! As for Racon.... I'll pay his taxi fare!!

liam lawrence,dave kitson,erik huseklepp,greg halford,tal ben haim and kanu join with joel ward,stephen henderson, jason pearce and benjani for leave of portsmouth fc.
balram chainrai to buy portsmouth fc and re-sign: david james,papa bouba diop,ricardo rocha,matt ritchie and jamie ashdown,with it the first team from portsmouth for the season 2012/13 will be:

1-james
4-mokoena
3-rocha
2-magri
14-webster
8-bouba diop
6-mullins
5-ritchie
7-norris
10-etuhu
9-futacs(5)(39)Im a portsmouth fan and if we got david james and ashdown james wouldn't be our number 1 also we cant afford diop championship clubs want him also we wont keep norris and mullins and i know ritchie is from portsmouth (gosport) but swindon are in our league now and he wont come back also i hear pompey want mcleod paynter when everything is resolvedCan not see the above happening, players like Bouba-Diop are the past! Wages are far too high. Appleton, given the chance, will build a youthful, hardworking team that may take a year or two before moving Pompey back up the divisions.Wish it was that easy100% No chance in hell. Pompey fans are the most deluded in the country.Hilarious, and i'm a Pompey fan! Appy has already stated that he'll not be signing anyone over 28 yrs old or so. Plus Mullins & Moks both earn well above the 3,000 ceiling on wages we'll have to have to perform within budget next season. Oh, and no Pompey fan would want Diop back! PUP.I have heard that this time balram chainrai will not pass the fit and proper person credentials by the football leagueDeluded what you on a bout? one fan says this and you say all pompey fans are deluded, im quessing your that team down the road then lolIm not a Southampton fan, but even I agree that Pompey fans are seriously deluded.I suspect you will find Chanrai is not accepted as a fit and proper owner-if it comes down to him. And, then, I'm afraid it leaves no interest in investing so I would seriously hold off booking any season tickets for a while.If Chanrai fails the fit & Proper test (which I very much doubt), then the Trust will buy Pompey. Either way, Pompey will rebuild based on youth. Some from the current players coming through and some via 'frees', etc. It will probably take a couple of years to sort out but agree that Pompey will most likely be back in the Championship in the not too distant future.I live in the same village as asdown was talkong to him at the village fair he says hes moving abroad so thats rubbishReally winds me up when people keep calling pompey fans deluded. idiots like the one who posted this rumour are the sort of "head in the clouds" people that we can do without. 95% of pompey fans know that we can't afford people of this calibre and are quite happy to accept whoever will be playing for us next season - happy in the knowledge that the club has survived.

Anderson. Owen. John brayford. Bruno of valencia. Jarvis. All signing for stoke tgis summer. Defoe agreed personal terms in january but price not agreed. Pulis will try tosign him this summer. If he cant he will try for lukaku on loan.

Jones whelen fuller woodgate collins higginbotham leaving(12)(30)Why Defoe want to go to a club who play the long ball? Defoe isn't very tall, so it's likely that the ball will sail over his head.U got any prof to back any of that up becasue they would all be great signing but can only see maybe one or two of them signingDefoe agreed to join in jan but harry blocked move so he would come and play for stokeI hope we dont get owen he is to injury prone and to the first comment its nothing that us stokies havent heard before plus deoe would love to join stoke so he can play upfront with crouch again which means if we wanted the long ball would work with crouch flicking it onto himFuller & Collins can come back to Ipswich, where they have played before, and get regular gamesWhelan signed a new contract in Jan so explain that one?

Yeovil to beat Tranmere, Hartlepool and Carlisle to the signing of Freddy Eastwood as he doesent want to move up north.

Swear I saw him in Huish earlier today.(6)(10)Not sure about this rumour but I hope he does sign. Though he did give a hint on his twitter that he could be signing for Scunthorpe!Hes already going back to southend,Why would he be in huish on a bank holiday sunday when everyone is off and away.. if its true, he will come when johnson is back from holiday and look around and talkThats good news didn`t want him at rovers anywayHis goal scoring over the last few seasons is poor anyway so not a lot of takers for him really. league One teams need a scorer who can get 15 to 20 a season. he hasn't been in double figures.

D stoke give him a year contract only to pay him playing for some else lolmfail rumourActually Stoke gave him a year contract to regain his fitness and help him find another club. Fully expect him to go out on loan at some stage so not a ridiculous comment at all.

brighton will spend big for next season otherwise why increase capacity of the stadium if we are just going to sit in the championship . you wouldn"t spend 1020 million pound on a formula one race car and get kevin from the pub to drive it(6)(14)Kevin is a very good driverWe've got a magnificent stadium - shame the player's salary budget isn't in the same league!"brighton will spend big for next season"

just like leicesterIts an ok stadium, wasnt too impressed last season. Just cant see Brighton being a big team in the ChampionshipSalary budget was also discussed and reviewed as argus stated . gus wants brighton to be more of an attractive club to players. like gus said its not if we make the premiership, its when. people just need to be patient, success of a club doesn't happen over night or in one season"an ok stadium"
Ha! No it is a superb stadium...that's why it won the award for the world's best new stadium. I smell jealousy...Brighton will not 'spend big'Lol so many jealous fans. the fact is tony bloom has put in well over 130 millon pound. realistically you dont invest that sort of money and just settle for mid table of the champship. he will want a return on his money so his aim would be to push for top flight football. whether it happens next season or in 3 we will have to wait and see so to all the doubters out there the ball is rolling, accept itIm a brighton season ticket holder and we still won't 'spend big' ,Im not jealous.

Jamie McAllister to trial with Yeovil for the first 2 weeks of pre-season training and should he sign, he could be a contender for captaincy...

But as mentioned in one of my previous posts, Nathan Smith is the primary target after a glowing reference from Terry Skiverton... An enquiry will be made(5)(6)Why would he need to do a trial - GJ know's him well enoughI really hope we do get smithy back, i think he would come back, fans favourite and we neeed a left back.

Frazier Campbell to Wolves with fletcher going the other way and 3mil to wolves(15)(37)Sunderland have only got one senior striker, so that will not happen. We have some good young forwards coming up though ie Connor Wickham, Donk-Won Ji, Ryan Noble and Criag Lynch +.Frazier Campbell + 6Mill maybeRyan Noble is awful he looked good in reserve team football.He came to us on loan and he is very weak he wouldnt be
able to go up agianst Robert huth and other big defenders and i was expecting
him to be faster than he is.

Connor wickham is promising but sunderland made him overated after a
stupid 8 million pound fee was paid when he didnt exactly set the championship a light but under Martin he will find form.

But On the bright side you do have very good talent in Ji as hes quick and a very
good finisherNoble is a goalscorer just needs to bulk up and get some experience at the lower levels, he will probs go on loan at hartlepool next season, then the season after maybe at a championship club, then hopefully in a couple of seasons he will be ready for the premiership, campbell is worth 7m and fletcher is 8m tops, no way is he worth 10m, would rather have campbell than fletcherWhy would we offer campbell and 3m? Campbell better than fletcherWould rather have Fletcher over Campbell any day of the week. Fletcher scored 22 goals in 41 league starts for Wolves. Lets not forget that this is a club then won only 16 of 76 games since his arrival, quite a remarkable record and one that certainly demands a fee of at least 10 million. People need to stop thinking they can get Fletcher on the cheap! for a mid table club he is easily capable of getting 20 goals a season. Finally, yes i am a Wolves fan so this may be a bit bias but you can't argue with the facts.Campbell better than fletcher? Ok....deluded fans once again. I must have forgotten all the goals he's scored?Or you didnt read all of what was said above? 22 in 41 starts. Thats an exceptional record at a club that was in relegation trouble in both seasons at the club! Campbell may have had injuries but his still way off where Fletcher is

Give him the manager's job!Cant see it, fantastic coach but very loyal to lambert. and suspect the compensation talks happening are more to do with backroom staff than PL himself.

Manchester United will sign Crewe youngster Nick Powell and loan him straight out to Peterborough United, as they look to build for a push up the Championship(23)(28)No!.Chelsea are buying him for 6 million
and loaning him back to crewe for 6 months to see how he plays in league 1
the 6 months to a championship side.If any other side can match that it is what
crewe want."but I want him Dad." "Dont you worry Son I'lla get im fa ye." Nice spoilt brat story but its only that, a story.Silly Man Utd fansIf Man Utd do sign powell then I do think he will come to posh becuase he won't get straight into the Utd side with the likes of Rooney and Welbeck still there.It is already well established that the club do not want any more loan deals as apart from Tunnicliffe I can't think of any that have come off recently. On top of that I'm not sure that he would want more from Man Utd after being sold a dud in Ajose last year and Wootton not working out either.

Any Middlesbrough fc news ?(3)(15)Boro has put 2 bid in for Bristol Citys Martin Woolford2 isn't much lol. I can see it as a swap deal with Mc Manus going in the opposite directionHeard curtis main is going to sunderlandBoro Dont need to sell and to pry main away would take a considrable sum of money which is risky for a youngster un proven in the premiership!Lol did Sunderland not learn their lesson with the whole Connor Wickham thing?Saw Woolford last year. Seems to take pace out of any attack. City fans I know would be glad to be shot of him. But not to Boro."lol did sunderland not learn there lesson with the whole connor wickhma thing" - great post! although i am a boro fan and i rate curtsi main, beesides hes a boyhood newcastle fan and after steve bruce i dont think they want anymore geordiesMain aint going anywhere ... certainly not this season and would take a huge fee to even get boros attention

READING are set to make a late move for Pavel Pogrebnyak as FULHAM sweat over completing a deal. The Russia international – a free agent – has been offered a permanent contract at Craven Cottage and will make a decision very soon. But the Royals may step in with a better offer.(13)(17)Would be great sighning,fulham reading about the same could do betterCould do a hell of a lot better,lolI heard Reading are interested in Matty EtheringtonNever gonna happenWould be a decent signing for Fulham and a GREAT signing for the royals but i think hes bigger than usHe is already at fulham isnt heReading isnt at Fulhams level yet. Would be quite a signing for Reading, but cant see it happening.It is unlikely Reading would sign him. But with their new owner being Russian and having a lot of money then there is a chance it could happenHe wont go, he has already bought a house near craven cottage

He was loaned out to Olympiakos last year and his transfer fee is not expected to be much. Could fill the hole currently on the right side of midfield!(24)(12)No idea how valid this rumour is, but I'd like this to happenHis agent has apparently banded his name around a fair few Prem clubs. Was talk of Stoke being interested. Would make sense Soton in the runningNot good enough !!!!Terrible player please dont be true!

Ben Foster will confirm his intent to stay in the West Midlands by turning down moves to both West Ham and QPR.

Close friends indicate he is happy to wait for West Brom to appoint a new manager before they make their move for him.(14)(8)So hope this is one is true .great for us if its trueYes, with Rangnick, Foster and some more pretty good signings the Baggies will forever be a top-half team!So hope this is true, he is so goodBen Foster wants to play for west brom and is likely to be meeting up with his mate Craig Gardner who is lined up for a 4m move to the Hawthorns.I suppose gardner and Alex Mcleash are good friendsAs long as i got a hole in my arse west brom will never sign mcleashAs a wba fan i know that ben and craig have been heavily linked with a move to us and i also know that they want to come to us. we are definatly going to be making a bid for these 2 and they are probbably going to be accepted as we will pay the price for these as they are both main targets for us during this transfer windowFoster is also very good friends with Ridgey...watch this space!Ben "foster good call" by the albion board if they sign him i sure hope he stays!Mcleash rumours are picking up around the press now. i bet villa fans said that they would "never get mcleash" and we all knew what happened there.I can see west brom going for mcleash to be honest. i feel sorry for them

Plymouth Argyles young player of the year Luke Young is set to join Premier League side Reading for a reporting £3m fee.

Reliable source.(3)(22)How about he's signed a new contract with us so you're not having himYoungy is from plymouth and he signed new longterm deal, byeTheir's no point in saying reliable source if you don't say what it is.

Cheesy LemonReally why would we spend 3 million on a league 2 midfielder ?The Reading posts are becoming more absurd by the day. You do seem to be having problems getting anyone in-perhaps the funds are not as available as you were lead to believe?Why would we want him LOLHalf decent young player, But 3 Million, dream on!Yes a premier league team is going to buy some L2 player that noones ever heard of. Reading will be looking for PL players.Y do people think we will sign league 2 players? We r not a club that's like that anymore3million for a player who scored only 2 goals in 33 games? I doubt it. The idea of Christian Jolley is better, 19 goals and cheaper.Plymouth fans telling reading to back off he is yours. Have him, as a reading fan i would be well dissapointedProblems getting anyone in? The window opened a couple of days ago. Man United haven't brought anyone I guess by your logic they're having problems getting anyone in also.All the plymouth fans sweating saying we wont get him haha we DONT want himReading you signed LeFondre from L2 hes the blimmin reason your in that league now so quit saying we dont sign from there anymore because you obviously do!Childish argumentWe were in the championship when we got Le Fondre. Plus, no single player was the reason for us getting in the PL, we work as a team. That was the difference between us and Southampton. Of the three teams going up Southampton will need to spend the most.Reading are only in the premier league because of John Madejski's money and now the new owners. You ain't a big club. Just one that has been lucky enough to have a sugar daddy.John Madejski's money? You clearly have no clue, he only spend to keep the club a float and the money we spend is from selling our best players which has kept us out of the prem in recent years. But with the russian coming in we can only get better and don't have to sell our best players.Luke young is a great hardworking midfielder but 3m is rediculous, 50,000/100,000 mostMadejski a sugar daddy, ! Pull the other one, that's why he sold the majority share because he can't stand the stupid money that's paid for players. He pays more for works of art than he would on a player.

Burnley to use the Jay Rod money to sign Stephen Dobbie from Swansea for 1.5M(19)(18)He's too old for us, we are only looking at players under 25 as they will have a good re-sale price on once we decide to sell.I would like to think we had 1.5 to spend mate but don't think we have even with the sale of jay , I think Eddie will have to be a smooth operator and get a couple of good free transfers and loans in, I would much prefer to keep trippier than jayHi sunderland fan here whats the lad jay rod like is he fast good in the air do you rate the lad? think he could hack it in the prem?Jay could hack it, for sure. He's played England u21 which is difficult to make from a lesser club, and he excells in all aspects of his game

COYI!!!(19)(11)David McNally the chief executive at Norwich said on twitter that there was no bid from west hamSomething tells me you support west ham...

Antonio has signed for Sheffield Wednesday after beating off competition from several CCC clubs for his signature. Should be announced Wednesday/Thursday.(17)(12)"Antonio has signed for Sheffield Wednesday"

Wrong, we haven't even accepted a bid from them. their first offer was rejected immediately and they will need to improve it considerably before they can even talk to him.Actually we have accepted a bid and Antonio is in talks over terms. Its true the 350K was rejected but the clubs have settled for 450K. Now its up to the lad and he knows he wont be in the premier league 25 so its either move or go out on loan. BTW Antonio wont go to Charlton even if he doesnt agree terms with weds as he has family up north so is looking to move up country

He'll be n for Murray at some stage though. The gaffa will look to Collins and Church (reading as part of the mapps deal). The club is in direr straights.Why does malkey try to sign watford player non of them are any good to be honestLaurence Bassini said a while back that Watford are not going to do any business with Cardiff while Malky is in charge.

Arsenal striker Podolski has urged arsene wenger to sign Germany team-mates gotze and shurrle if van persie leaves. The arsenal new boy has taken into account that arsenal pick young talented players and how wenger likes to keep his big players happy.

Chelsea on the brink of a 28million pound deal for Lavezzi.

Jordan Rhodes the Scottish Superstars team is being bombarded with bids from multiple premier league clubs including 2 of the top four according to the simon Grayson.

Manchester united are again chasing Wesley sneijder but this time are keen to spend no more than 40m on the Dutch midfielder.

Manchester city target van persie looks to be staying at arsenal. Even the 280000 a week contract doesn't look like enough to tempt the player. However Ronald de boer says that if Netherlands don't win euro 2012 robin may have the urge to win a trophy elsewhere.(13)(21)I hope you are correct about Lavezzi, would be massively wasted at PSG where let's be honest, he would play in a far weaker league than Serie A. However apparently the deal to PSG is done.Total lies

Southend full back Sean Clohessy reportedly agreed a deal to join Micky Adams side in the next week.

Had talks up at vale last week and all went well.

Apparently vale are set to be took over soon by a new owner and have a very big budget this time around to get promotion. They have just got to wait for the green light to start signing new blood. Ainsworth has already signed I'm led to believe and another non league forward Jon shaw and a las from Histon have held talks with the vale boss.

Very genuine info.(7)(4)Bullst , he wouldn't join vale when hes at southend , when we are the bigger teamI have seen some crp on here but this tops it, why would clohessy leave to port vale, he is a league 1 class player who is staying at southend, also you're skint you couldn't afford a transfer fee and wages for himAinsworth is coming back to burton

- Palace are set to offer Andrew Johnson; £20,500 a week on a pay to play bases with a contract leading him to summer of 2013.

- Tunchev deal collapsed after Palace and Tunchev couldn't agree on the contract length.
Tunchev wanted a 2 year contract but Palace are only willing to offer him a 1 year contract.

- Clyne is set to sign for Newcastle this week with Palace receiving a fee of £3,500,000 for the youngster.

- Palace have been in talks with West Ham United about taking Sam Baldock on loan for the whole season with Palace only paying 30% of his wages.(24)(23)I really really really really really really wish.Would love this to be true. Really good player!The Johnson part would be nice if it were true, though any "rumour" that includes wages and fees is going to be rubbish..Palace could never afford to spend 20k a week for johnsonAgree Palace can't afford 20k but seeing the he would be a freebie maybe they might splash out. Maybe pay as you play because of all his injuries.Have u people never thought that they could just reduce the transfer budget and pay him the 20k a week? he is a free. better than signing some average guy for 500k and giving them 10k a week, works out the same with a 1 year contractIm not sure where palace are getting a transfer budget from? Dougie should be concentrating on picking up young players like ward, looking to the future not the past with a player like AJ

Could get better else where.Cancun we were in the same hotelEvery player in the championship would beg to differ seen as they all chose him in championship team of the season, but Ye i guess you know more than all them and every single football expert that says he us worth itI saw him in cancunYou are clearly not Jay Rodriguez's brother.7 million which hernandez was which was van der vaart was and others it just shows you can great players with that kind of money.Thats because english players that have been trained in england are at a premium for english clubs that have to meet european rulings

Source: Cumbrian Gazette(1)(10)No way! Neal can't leave, or we're left with no keeper. Who do we sign:
Daniels/Rachubka/Mildenhall/Weale/Gilmartin/Nelson? These keepers are ones on rumours list. Suppose if neal leaves, I would prefer Daniels, but please neal don't leave! COYBOr there's conrad logan, latest keeper on rumours list linked with us. Nah, still would prefer daniels again if neal was to leave. Daniels was brilliant when he was with us couple of seasons ago, pen shootout hero got us to play-off final. Great keeper. Nelson to be back-up?

Brighton will look to secure 4 permanent signings in the next 4 weeks. Gus Poyet is also in talks with 2 players regarding a loan move.

LOANS:
Harry Kane, Spurs, until January
Luke Moore, Swansea, until January

Permanent:
Joe Mattock, free transfer
Sone Aluko, Rangers, free transfer
Alan Judge, Notts County, £600,000
Kyle McFadzean, Crawley, £1m(5)(15)Joe Mattock has already accepted Derby Countys Contract terms.Plus Gus Poyet will be goneWher did you puck this lot from, have you been on holiday with gus or have you got a magic ball, Yes to mattock, possible Aluko. not Judge at 600k and no way is Mcfadzean worth 1m after one season with little old Crawley in Div 2: come on start giving us some players worth buying : Big GLol mate think brighton will spend more than thatMattock will sign for brighton. And poyet has stated he is not leaving.Can't see Judge but the others are possible if unlikely that we would want them all - too many too similar and 1m for McFadzean? I don't think so!Brighton are favourites to sign Mattock and Gus Poyet is currently on vacation so he isn't leaving.You would need to come with at least 1m for judgeYour post is laughable gus is staying . and budget for players is around 10 million source from the clubAlan judge worth alot more than 600.000, 1.0 - 1.5 million min

charlton to bolster their midfield and attack with the double signing of francois zoko for free and paul cotts for 350k westley will take 350k for a debbie downer(5)(15)Coutts is not leaving pne for less than 700k ,westley or risdale will not let him go for that moneyIgnore this lad, why would we want zoko who scored an awful amount for league 1 in the championship when we are after baldock and 'cotts' IS coming to us for 550k FACT I KNOW THIS AS I HAVE SOURCES IN THE CLUB!^ i'd prefer to hav Coutts!The Keith Andrews one might have more legs.

if they lose out on Sigurdsson(9)(23)So to make up for missing out on a midfielder they'll sign a forward?

West Ham, having had a 3 million bid rejected, have now bid 4 million for Grant Holt. Sources say that Holt likes Big Sam and respects West Ham so a deal could be on the cards unless another team bids more (Aston Villa). Another deal is Ahmed Elmohamady from Sunderland who has been in talks with the Hammers and looks likely to sign in the next two weeks.

My understand is that Reading are very close to completing the signing of Adrian Mariappa from Watford. They are also close to signing Carlos Sanchez Moreno from Valienciennes. With Brendan Rodgers wanting to make Sigurdsson Liverpool's first signing, Reading's back up option if they don't get Gylfi is Cardiff midfielder Peter WhittinghamPD(12)(17)Sorry mate, look'd like you're not getting a CM as Whits is not for sale and Gylfi going to Liverpool now..... Reading to get relegated put 20 on it yesterday!Whittingham not for sale? U ever heard of managers saying things to raise the price?Carlos Sanchez is a CM...Everyone is for sale for the right place mate.That's 20 quid you'll never see again!!Doesn't matter if whittingham isn't for sale we can still make a bidReading will not buy Whittingham they can do better this coming from a cardiff fanWhy would whittingham want to stay at cardiff because I doubt they will get to the prem any time soon and whittingham is far to good for both cardiff and the championshipHe is a fan favorate and settled down in cardiff. He is vice captain and he is a star player at cardiff and maybe he doesn't want to be a squad player at reading and he has just signed a long term contract with cardiff and believes the club is going places. Those good enough reasons for you reading fans

Brett Pitman could complete his move to Burnley for 500,000 pound on Monday(11)(14)The fee will be double that as Bristol will be looking to make a profit on the player500k thats already been agreed ...
not worth anymore than thatPitman turned down a 700k move to Blackpool because he has a young family and didnt want to move North and wanted to stay in Bournmouth (I think?)

Now I'm not saying Blackpool is a beauty spot (many of the players at Pool, Blackburn & PNE live in Lytham St.annes) but Burnley is not a place where anybody would want to move to if they lived on the south coast.

So cant see this one comming off!!You do realise when players sign for clubs they don't actually have to live in the town! They have things called cars you can use to commute it's a groundbreaking thing really.Why is that i came from the south coast and moved to burnley there are come very nice place close to burnley in fact there is a place called edgeworth 20 miles away thats it one of the most expensive post codes in the north west

Southampton boss Nigel Adkins's record bid for Jay Rodriguez is under serious threat with a deadline past and rival bidders sniffing round. Rodriguez turned down the chance to join the Saints in a £6.5 m transfer at Friday's midnight cut-off point - a stage when Saints lost their exclusive right to approach him. Now they are sweating on offers coming in from Sunderland and Aston Villa. Jay returns from holiday tomorrow so the issue could be resolved over the next few days.

Quality Sunday Tabloids.(11)(28)Didn't we kind of sort of need to wait til he was back from holiday to even START negotiations anyway? Bit difficult to thrash out a deal when they are on holiday, isn't it?Why would any team set a deadline of approaching someone who is currently on holiday? We might lose out on him but it won't be because he's missed a deadline whilst in Mexico!Rodriguez has been away on holiday in Mexico, so Saints have not been able to discuss personal terms with him.....only his agent. As soon as he returns he will meet Nigel Adkins to discuss personal terms and take a medical. And for your information, there is no 'Exclusivity period' on transfers. It's obvious that what you say is a load of bull as you didn't name the 'Quality Tabloids'....what do you read? The sunday sport?.....lolAbsolute tripe!!
Saints are in talks with his agent - why would they set a deadline for completion of talks when the guy is on holiday!!
Now go back to supporting that little team of yours down the M27.Rubbish. Never was an exclusivity agreement. Any other bids that are made would be reported upon, Southampton's bid was quickly reported when successful so we will hear confirmation if any other clubs bid. They haven't bid, no one will match Saints bid. It's up to Jay whether we can agree personal terms when he is back from holiday. That is all it ever was. He's back from holiday tomorrow afternoon, so we will know more then. Stop posting dramatised rubbish to try and have something interesting to say. Situation exactly the same as last week. Shush.There was no deadline?
Someone claiming to ba an agent made it up and it seems you were gullible enough to beleive them.

My girlfriend who's modelling agency works with Amy macdonald (singer) who is married to former Bournemouth striker Steve Lovell who's sister is married to eddie Howe (strange but true) has told her to whack a nifty 50 on Howe to be next Swansea manager. Apparently he got a phone call asking his thoughts on the job. He's been average at burnley but he plays a good passing game so I might go with a tenner on this one(19)(14)I think he would be a great choice.A well presented man who has his team playing ground football.He learned it all at bournemouthAs a Burnley Fan would not be too dissapoined.Would expect a large slice of the compensation Liverpool paid Swansea(Still 3 years left on contract)very weak dealing with experienced players and only has ability to recruit lower league players.
He did well at Bournmouth but has not lived up to expectation in a higher division.You are funnier than frankie boyle whats next sir alex ferguson to take over at burnleyGood tip m8. Just stuck 10 on it. It's abit random for it to be made up. If he gets the job. Ur the man!Howe found his level at
burnleySteve lovell and eddie howe are half brothers ! UTCWaste of money lol Eddie Howe just about kept his job at burnley because of his age and board has faith he can turn them around pushing for playoffs

McDonald in talks with owls over 4 year contract. Was on radio five saying he loves Sheffield and hopes united fans won't hate him. Draw of championship football too much to refuse(10)(11)Strange but true, blades will hate him and he will be a loss to us but im friends with a couple of the juniors and its a big topic amongst the united playersWhy are we so surprised at this. Its been in the pipeline since they overtook us. He said he wanted champ football and hes out of contract. No loyalty in football just money. Only stumbling block is hes still injured so might put things on hold but early summer yet

Preston are looking to bring in stoke striker mamady sidibe on a loan or a free transfer(13)(4)He's just had another contract from stoke so loan more likelyYou can have him hes such a bad player might be okay in a lower league but not in the prem, hes injury prone anywayHe'll be a loan because he's still under contract. But if you want him I'll drive him to Preston myself.Free transfer? Very unlikely as Mama's just been given a 12 month extension to his contract.Please TAKE HIMThe 12 month contract is more as a pay off for his services as the club has as good as said. Wouldn't be surprised to see him loaned out as he is out to prove his fitness to earn a new contract for the 2013/14 season elsewhere.Can't see sidibe leaving stoke. He loves the club and the manager loves him. He might not be the best player for us, but he has been a great servent for us and played his heart out every game he's played. Met him a few times outside some grounds and you cannot get a nicer, genuine guy who welcomes fans, top guy.Sidibe recently signed a new deal at stoke o they wont get him for freeCouldn't agree more ^^^True Stoke fans would not slate big Mama, he's been a great servant to the club. Sidibe also won Stoke's first Prem match for us, against Aston Villa; scoring in injury time to make it 3-2, back of the head job.Sidibe did not win stokes first premiership game against Aston villa . The class of Ricardo fuller did .stoke are a disgrace for offering sidibe a contract and not fullerThat's all very good but you'll have to wait until he gets better first, then i'm sure he'll pack his bagsLearn your facts- Fuller rejected a year contract and Sidibe signed.

More on the Charlie Daniels news - He is set to sign for Sheffield Wednesday with David Prutton moving in the other direction. Cash also part of the deal with 500k thought to be going AFC Bournemouth's way.(2)(6)More bull barnsley was mentioned from you yeasterday now it is shefielld wednesday today stop posting rubbish.If Prutton sets foot on the Dean Court pitch I'm handing back my season ticket!David prutton? i'd rather play with 10 men then have him in midfielderI'm sure Daniels would like a move to Wednesday and I'm sure Wednesday would like Daniels but I'm also pretty sure Wednesday couldn't afford his wages. He was given a mega deal as he was one of the first after our takeover which I have heard is in excess of 13000 basic! When he left orient we beat a host of championship clubs who couldn't/wouldn't match that.PRUTTON ?? he of the bad hair do and couldn`t hack it at Swinpon...no thank you. {Ed013's Note - Prutton is a very good player for league 1, a grafter with a good eye for goal. What has his hair got to do with how he plays football}Prutton should not be under estimated. Having seen your club twice last season he would enhance the team. He is a quality player in Division 1. Yes remember you are in the third tier not the PremiershipEverytime i have seen prutton play he's been below average, he is not a good player for league 1 and will not be welcomed at bournemouthI wouild welcome prutton as hes a matchwinner on his day. his experience in l1 could be what we need. ill go for the swapPrutton is not the sort of player we want, thnx but nope

Norwich will sign Danny Murphy.
This is a deffo(7)(28)Norwich will sign nobody deffo not with there debt and the fact everybody wants out as another person has posted you have a 2 year plan to go back to league 1 where your little team deservesWow some real hatred there. You cant build your own team up by knocking another team down. Big teams are great for English football they showcase British talent on the world stage and sometimes bring drama and excitement, but little teams are so much greater, they are closer to the fans and they bring what is so great about football, entertainment that we can actually afford to go and be a part of. They give players the chance to play the wonderful game infront of local fans people who share their own background. Without little teams football would be boring corporate football monstrosities full of prima donna players and managers, it would be like American sports full of show boating and half hearted effort. Little teams have owners who love football and care about the team, not foreign owners who want a new toy or status symbol. Little teams are the life blood of football, little teams remind us of what football should be, passion, hardwork, community and little teams carry more dignity and honor than the jackasses thinking being labeled a little team is something to be insulted about. Win, lose or draw we are proud to be fans of little teamsThere is no debt, its less than 18M and the ground , training academy complex is all bought and paid for, so stop making stupid remarks, clearly you are another disgruntled Ipswich Fan, who thinks you lot will get promoted next season, with your debt and lack of real supporters you are only going one way and it ain't up !What debt? I think the 45m we got for being promoted last season took a huge chunk out of our 23m debt. Stop kidding yourself!Someones an ipswich fan.
actually, all our external debt will be gone by the end of next season. and our investors have all said they are more than happy to put internal debt aside to help the club. one player has ASKED to leave but has said he WANTS to stay. you sir, are an idiot.Lol at he person above
We have very little debts since getting promoted
Also with are fan base we don't belong in league 1
Jealous ispwich fanMain poster - we'll sign noone without a manager calling the shots.
Second poster - Blatant Ipswich fan....do some research regarding the debt situation. We'll be free of external debt by the end of the 12/13 season.Someone's jealousWat u on About u little jealous fool. We are debt free. Have 15m to spend on transfers plus the lambert compensation with a decent squad to add to. Over 22,000 season ticket holders and max gates of over 26,000 every game ! So shut up u fool !!If you're going to be an troll, at least have the courage to state which team is lucky enough to enjoy your brave support. And it's 'their', not 'there'. OTBCThis post is a joke, Danny Murphy is too old and Norwich are a decent club with good loyal fans and deserve their place in the Premiership, They are no little team.Agree with the 3rd comment totally

Gylfi will sign for swansea city in the next week(15)(28)Liverpool understandably interested in him nowThat is looking less likely every day.

{Ed006's Note - I think it is going to be up in the air until Swansea see who there next manager is. I would like him to replace Spearing for us at Liverpool.}Yes liverpool are suppose to be interested but he is likely to stay with the swans as he like the way we play and rodgers has also told him to stay hereEd 006 option sounds good to me.
CRIf he does sign for swansea it will only be for a couple of seasons if your lucky, this boy is destined for bigger and better things although a move to swansea would probably be for the best at the moment.If he had wanted to sign, he would have signed already.

stoke city to sign demba ba this week(6)(46)Why would they pay 7m for him now when they turned down the chance to have him for free a year agoBa and crouch wil be good combo
need centre mid poss lampard or ramsey?Because now he has shown he is not suffering from knee trouble and when stoke wanted him he was not freeRamsey wouldnt join stoke after what happend and stoke couldnt afford lampards wages, we need a playmaker in the middleWhy would he leave european football its not like he dosent want to stay or isnt getting first team football.Stoke fans are just annoyed at pullis for not taking him on a free.I doubt he will leave if he does it would be on a big fee because of signing a new contract with no release clause he wants to stay because of cisseWhy would he sign for such a poor teamYou have an impressive imagination, not a chance in hell of this happening, he wont come hes on to bigger things, and we wouldnt want him after everything. (from a REALISTIC stoke fan)He wasn't available on a free to Stoke. Newcastle didn't get him for free either.Just setting the story straight as obviously some idiots know nothing about football. Stoke were offered Bemba Ba from Hoffenheim for 9m, they turned him down due to an underlying knee problem described as a 'time bomb' by the medical staff, West Ham then signed him for 6m. Due to a clause in his contract due to relegation he was then able to join Newcastle for free. Demba Ba has made a few remarks about Stoke's decision not to sign him so it's unlikely he's sign for Stoke. It's even more unlikely that Newcastle would sell him, especially for only 7m.No they wontBefore newcastle fans start getting on their high hourses about this rumour BA was minutes away from being a stoke player in the first place before our medical team messed up big style so if given the chance why wouldn't he want to come now on higher wages if given the chance and another thing it's only a rumours. cheer upHe's too good a player to sign for a rubbish side like stoke !!!Stoke NOT after Demba Ba after passing on him previously. Demba Ba is moving on which will trigger a move for a player to join Stoke.Stoke medical team didn't mess up---they weren't happy with his knee problem and he had failed a previous medical. They simply weren't willing to take a chance but obviously you know his condition better. He has a get out clause at Newcastle and Harry at Spurs has as much as said as they will bid for him and chances are he'll go there.Don't be fooled by the 'free transfer' to newcastle. Big payments were made to make it happen, Ba did not join them for nowt. He will not be going to Stoke who wouldn't want him after he failed a medical both there and at West Ham, but could end up at a club who can afford to take the chance on his knee holding out.

Fraser forster(gk) and Gary Hooper for celtic should have been in the england squad just because they play in he spl they still have to keep out goals and still stick them in the net think hodgsons boobed there hooper a prolific goalscorer and would score goals anywhere giving the service
Hobbybhoy(27)(22)Lambert would be better than hooper for England especially in a penalty shoot outThe SPL is no different from League 1. You didn't even have Rangers to compete with this year. Delusional?My granny can score goals in the spl one of celtics best players (stokes) was released by sunderland couldnt even make reserve teamMate scoring goals against teams who would struggle to get in english div 1 does not represent being good enough to get in england teamHooper needs to prove himself in the Premier league. Not the tin pot SPL! That's why he will move to Southampton.Spl stands for sunday premier league, a place where the best sunday league players play, AHAHAYou people have no idea !! I will take anyone's money that when hooper does move back to England ( and he will do) he will be in your precious England squad within a year - the guy is a qualityfinisher and his overall game is very underrated - its a joke your hopeless managers can't see this just because he plays in the spl {Ed001's Note - if Welbeck can get in the England squad, my nan could, and she is 90, on a zimmer frame and has dodgy hips. Hardly saying much to suggest Hooper will get in, even though you clearly over rate him, as he is lazy and average, though he is, I agree, very much a goalscorer. He is just Celtic's answer to Kris Boyd.}So on your argument that hooper needs to prove himself in the English premier,
So
Next season if hooper scores 10 times in Europe and finishes top scorer in Spl, that would not be good enough?
The season Carroll was bought for 35m hooper bought for 2m both played in championship and hooper finished top scorer, since then what has Carroll proved nothing!
Even jelivec has come from the so called tin pot league and only played half the season and scored 3 times the goals Carroll has.I dont get this atall why english people criticise Celtic for being scottish.. maybe the league is crap, but Celtic arent.. if they were why would southampton, norwhich, reading want hooper? why would villa and liverpool want ki ? why would man utd want izaguirre and kayal? anyone can criticise the league but everyone knows celtic are a decent team, so spend your time criticising teams in your own league.Right the premier league has better teams than the spl there's no need to point this out every time a Scottish team or player from a Scottish club is mentioned, as for hooper hes a very talented poacher, scored a few past my team when he was at Scunthorpe. But he does need to prove that he can score goal against better quality defenders and keepers before he gets picked for a major tournamentClearly stokes isnt one of our best player do you ever watch celtic games and shaun maloney couldnt even make it in celtic first team and hes one of wigans key player hate it when cooky english fans think epl amazingSimple better opposition more to prove better players around you better results ie maloney. Hooper is a good finisher granted but better than Rooney, wellbeck, young, defoe, and the rest no chance pal, he' ll be off ski to England if not now then jan when you've nothing to play for except the league and tin pot cups with little or no oppositionWho really gives a toss about England? Why should anyone outside England give a rats a$$ about their team. They are delusional and have some bizarre air of superiority which they have never come close to justifying. They will fail miserably as usual. Does Hooper have an Irish Granny? lol. As far as Foster goes. I really would love England to pick him. He is a big tube. Please pick himMate! Nothing to play for, if you don't play in either the top 2 man u Or man city he will have nothing to play for league wise, and correct me if I'm wrong but your 3rd team finished 16 points behind 2nd place. Don't even get me started on how much money was spent by the top 4 last season on transfers, if half that money was available for the Scottish league all 12 teams would be in a much better position.
But never mind, fifa fair play and monetary rules kick in soon, so all those clubs that are hundreds of millions in dept will soon find it difficult to buy the 40m player when there income is 20m.

If your reading, Qpr,wigan, or any other team that Finnish outside the top 4 played in the financial climate that the Scottish teams have to keep to they would be no better than what's in Scotland and that's a fact.I just laugh at these english tts going on about out league focus on your own god dam teams celtic has a great team and well said above why would all your top teams be wonting our players that cause there good so before you comment focus on your own teamThe spl is a total joke. It is worse than league one. Celtic are a championship team. Scoring goals in the spl does not show you are a good striker. This was shown perfectly by fran sandaza who, while playing for brighton in LEAGUE 1 could barely get a game, let alone a goal. However, when he was chucked into the spl, he promptly became one of the top scorers!
However, hooper is miles better than Carroll!Ed001...for you to say Hooper is lazy and average is just wrong,i could hear your epl higher thinking in what you said. Hooper is always running back to mid to help out, he picks up the long passes with nice touch and holds off the defence and always finds a player which opens up play and always seems to make the right pass then runs to the box.
for England not to give him a place is just showing that they are happy to keep to the normal plan which hasnt worked out for yous at all in previous years. It doesnt matter what league he plays in he has talent and knows how to score(i cant wait to see what all epl fans would say if Rhodes signs for Celtic, would they say he is a crapy player after over a year talking him up as a superstar? because Celtic would crush any league 1,2, championship and lower table epl teams) and he showed that he can play against well defensive clubs and top players as he did in europa league against the winners and la liga leaders. only one other player scored more then him this year and that was rvp, and if you say it is because the spl is crap then why is it that not other stickers are scoring so much? jelivic seems to be tearing it up when yous said he could not,and he got most of his goals from pen in spl. you epl fans need to open your eyes up, as another said above, yes the spl is not the best but Celtic is no small club and they get the best players in the land that they can,the players that want to win and develop and who dont just look for a pay day, and epl are always calling for our players and our crap players seem to do well in epl. go and watch some highlights of our season and see the goals and you would see how good they are and Hooper is always in the right place.
if carrol got into the club i dont know how hooper did not, carrol is good in th air but just cant score where hooper just needs a chances and more then not it would be in the back of the net, we are happy to have him and his goals and in a year maybe all you epl ppl would see it to when he leaves for a bigger club maybe not in the epl but in spain or else where and yous would be kicking yourself {Ed001's Note - actually I think Rhodes is nowhere near as good as Hooper. But your ridiculous talk about Hooper's great touch, he has far from a great touch, he is very lazy, he offers very little outside the box. Jelavic, in my opinion, is a far better all round player than Hooper, much as I hate to admit it, as he is at Everton now! His issue is his dummy throwing when things aren't exactly as he wants and a lack of pace.}All you disillusional England fans what r u's talking about? Gary hooper is a tremendous player, he scored 28 goals in the championship the same season andy Carroll scored 6! He has scored 50 goals for celtic in 2 seasons while being hampered with injurys! Look how jelavic has done for everton in half a season, England will just play the long ball with andy Carroll in the team! As for Forster, much better than calamity green, these Celtic players also have european experience unlike Carroll n green! Stop turning ur noses up at the Scottish game! More n more off ur teams r coming up here n buying our players so what does that say! If Celtic were to get into the premiership they would hold there own no problems! A few years with ur finances we would be challenging to win it!

Byars38625 {Ed001's Note - how can you compare Gary Hooper's goal record at Scunthorpe with Carroll's at Newcastle in that season? Hooper was a fully established striker, who played 45 games that season, while Carroll was just pushing into the team and made 14 appearances. Are you really that desperate to prove how great Hooper is?}I know what ur saying ed mate, I know hoopers first touch isn't great and he can be lazy but he's a predator in the box and they can be hard to find! Ive always admired jelavic, wish Celtic could find a gem like that! A player off his calibure would get the best out off hooper! Don't rate andy Carroll much! England will only be able to play one way when he's in the team.

Byars38625 {Ed001's Note - I do agree he is a predator, I did say that he scores goals, I just wish he would do more out of the box, then he would be already in the England side now.}Ed001 I take on board what you say about Hooper! He def needs to work on his touch and his work rate, but he is a fantastic little striker! He's strong as an ox for his height and his finishing is fantastic, he rarely misses a chance! Also to those who say he only scores against mickey mouse oppositions what about his goals in Europe against Lyon,Braga(the year they reached the Europa league final), Rennes and Udinese away! They all said the same when Larsson was at Celtic, he could only do it in the SPL yet he moved to barca and helped them win the champions league! Ps I'm not comparing hooper to Larsson, just trying to make a point

Ice man {Ed001's Note - he is only 24 or so though isn't he? So he still has 3 or 4 years until he hits his peak, every chance for him to work on his touch.}Ed i think you need to go watch highlights because you are right to some point but i think you are a bit too harsh on him. the type of player your talking about sounds more like stokes, but you would see hooper helping out at mid and takeing and making smart passes to open up play. but then again i guess you have to watch the games to know, which i think is why many epl fans dont see his true play, hopefully CL can help with the problem and open ppls eyes a wee bit. {Ed001's Note - no thank you, I don't like watching highlight reels made up of the best bits of a player, even Ryan Babel looked good in those. I have watched him plenty, for Scunthorpe and Celtic, he is not good at linking play, he is not good at working back, but he will score you goals. He will score goals anywhere he goes. I think I was harsh comparing him with Kris Boyd though, because I do think he is a better player than him, I just meant he offers little outside the box, like him. I just don't think he will ever be top class, mid table Prem is his level, easy good enough for England right now though, they don't have any outstanding penalty box predators to keep him out. But he won't get a chance for England while he plays in Scotland, the level of competition he faces most weeks is just too low. He should have gone to the Euros though.}So was Larsson a mediocre player because he played in the SPL?Tbf i'd like to see HooperEd001 your comments on Hooper show some contradiction. I agree he isn't a link up player but so what! He is still only 24 and has a lot to learn. Give me a poacher who could guarantee me 20+ goals as season, all day, everyday. I think you would take that at your team in a heartbeat.

I am only drawing comparisons in style when I say this and not ability, but Gary Lineker didn't do too bad for England for someone who got a nose bleed outside the 6 yard box. Natural goalscorers are like gold dust so I am happy for Hooper to stay under the radar of English clubs for as long as he keeps banging them in for us {Ed001's Note - I would not, I never rated Lineker either, when Everton had Gray, who did link up the play well, they won the title, swopped him for Lineker and they came second. It is that simple. No good having a player who only helps the team while in the box, you have to be able to get it there first! Rush could score goals better than anyone, but he also got involved in the build up, as well as being the first line of defence harrying defenders. Hooper needs to do more for me.}Ed001....you say he dosent do much and only stays in the box but you also say you would never watch a spl game because it is to boring or campaired to league 2(as you mentioned many of times before) so you dont get to see what he does in a game week in week out. but it dosent matter because epl fans dont see this, im sure you would love him once he is in epl but i wouldnt be surprised if spain and other leagues came calling....but these are all opinions and views so it is Englands loss and Hooper as well as Foster(keeping 23 clean sheets is tuff in any league and this year Celtic lost alot of defensemen this season and with his hieght alone i think he should have been in lol). England are always taking the superstars when i think players like Hooper and utility players would help out the team more then others. with the players like Lampart and all that can give good passes and crosses for someone to run on and be sent in Hooper would score tons for England and become a hero because he just needs one chance. {Ed001's Note - I have never made any comparison of the SPL and League Two at all, I do agree though, I don't like watching the SPL, it is dire. But Hooper did play many times before he went up there you know.}Ed

You didn't rate Lineker, for Christ sake!! I know you are a Liverpool fan but come off it. He is England's second best international goalscorer, a Golden Boot winner, 40 goals in 57 games for Everton etc. etc.

I thought your Hooper comments were way off the mark but to say you never rated Lineker shows me you are much of a judge of ability. You are entitled to your opinion all the same so fair play. {Ed001's Note - how much did England win with Lineker up top? Nothing. How much did Everton, who had a fantastic team, win with him in their team? Nothing. He is one of the most over rated players in world football, hardly a great player. The fact that you rate him, shows to me your complete lack of knowledge of what it takes to be great. No wonder you rate Hooper like some kind of superhero, you don't even understand that it is a team game.}Ed

Not once did I say Hooper was a superhero, read all my comments. I said he was a good goalscorer, that's it. I think Hooper has a mountain to climb before I would even consider him in the top 20 strikers I have seen playing for Celtic in the 30 years I have been watching them, never mind so called "superhero" status. I defended him against those saying he wasn't good enough for the EPL, I personally think he could a job for someone.

By your reasoning though every England striker before and after 1966 must have been useless seeing as no trophies have been won. Rooney, Shearer, Lineker, Owen, Ian Wright, Keegan all cr@p because England haven't won anything? Jesus I can't believe I am even defending English strikers. The point being, plenty of good players have never won anything and plenty of great players have never won what they should have. You can't judge ability by medals alone. Argentina have won nothing with Messi and Northern Ireland won nothing with George Best. One man doesn't make a team, you should know that after your "team game" comments. You say I don't understand that it's a team game and you blame Lineker on Everton and England not winning anything! do you see the irony yet?

I think you will find a few Barca fans out there who think Lineker did alright when he scored 4 goals on the way to them lifting the Cup Winners Cup.

To end this all. I respect your opinion but I think we will always disagree on this. I think I hit a nerve when I said you weren't much of a judge of a player. It's a game of opinions after all. {Ed001's Note - except that you have just admitted having the same opinion as me of Hooper! What is wrong with you? Trying to be clever and you have just made a complete tit of yourself.}Gary hooper scored 30 goals in league 1 helping Scunthorpe get promoted to the Championship, then scored 20 goals while his team struggled to stay in the Championship, he still managed more goals than the 35 million Andy Carroll

Told today that Michael Bostwick could be on his way from Stevenage who have signed Dunne from Exeter as a ready made replacement. Favourites are Crystal Palace but Brighton & Hove Albion are also said to be interested. Both sent high level scouts to the play off games.(11)(4)When the only football of league standard being played on a particular Saturday is the Play off final, why send anyone but your top scouts? I bet all of the Championship had a scout there.

Glenn Hoddle now favourite - 15/8 - to take over as Norwich City manager. He feels he is ready for another challenge and hopes to guide The Canaries to a top ten finish next season. The board see him as one of their first choices as he has International experience and he will use the finances wisely to build a better squad for the season ahead. Expect him to be announced late next week on a two-year deal with a one year option.(10)(21)Lol good one he could have mystic meg as his number two theres only one man for me and his name is chris ! In mcnally we trustCould be , he has God on his side might be a big helpNo Chance!I hope this is not true. Thanks but no thanksWho told you this? Eileen Drewery? lolNot a chance..........he's been out of football management for too long and a lot of the young up and coming players don't even know who he is. Also the fans will hate him because of his stupid disabled believes.Christ, I would not wish Glenn Hoddle upon any club, not even Leeds. Worst manager Wolves ever had.

IanGet real - Norwich will not go anywhere near Hoddle, you will be telling me next they will go for Roy Keane, the reality is they will likely go for Mackay at Cardiff, Hughton at Birmingham or Lee Clark or even offer Culverhouse a chance to step up to management, with perhaps Clark coming in as 1st team coach.The man,s a dinosaur,no room for him or his ideas in the modern game, jog on hoddle.He will take you down factTop 10 finish!! Norwich will do well to stay up

C'mon You Spiraites!(3)(12)West brom do not want to loan out james hurst c'mon you baggies ;)Chesterfield are going straight back up watch out for more quality signing in the next 2 weeks .Chesterfield looking at izle McLeod and Franck Moussa on free transfersChesterfield chairman Dave Allen has put a ban on all loans so doubt James Hurst or Hyote will be turning up to the B2net on loan dealsMoussa would be another top signing really cant see mcloud coming unless westcarr or bowery goes first .........hope we can keep tommy "englands no1" leeMcLeod would be a great signing!Also heard nott forest looking at Bowery, and he might be tempted by his father having played for them plus it's a step up, making way for McLeod to come inId prefer westcarr going bowery started to improve!!!he could rip league two up next season...squads starting to take shape now....I totally agree Bowery improved massively lat season and a starting roll next season in league 2 will seem him become a finished article.
And westcarr's best position is on the wing. I was gutted by the decision to let mendy go he would have coursed damage in league 2Chesterfield are NOT going to loan any players, so you people need to stop thinking that! The chairman said he wants to buy players not loan them. A reliable source has told me that moussa will sign and so will dickinson. hoyte will not or murphy as both joining brentford on loan. so sorry guys no big signings as yet will keep you informed.

Southampton to bid 2million for millwalls liam trotter. Source sky sports and the sun. Not too sure about this one if its even half true!(14)(17)Hope so, he is Fast, Strong and compliments our fantastic side, he would do well!I'm sure this rumour has all ready been around once this summer.Let him go and sign frankie raymondSince when was trotter fastI don't know much about Trotter,don't know how fast,how strong,how good etc,
but I don't think signing Championship
players will be a good move if we want to stay in the Prem,just feel we need good
classy experience Prem players to come in.Well look at norwich they bought good championship players now look at themTrotter should be playing for Charlton nil, I dont know weather he would do it for Chairman Slater tho!Yeah,lost their good manager, and a very good hard to replace striker looks to be on his way.Trotts fast! he's got the lot but he's a Rolls Royce and they aint fast..........well not the ones I can affordTrotter is a very good player on his day and can be worth 4/5m on his day but has been very inconsistant this season.

Richard Keogh wants to rejoin his old club Bristol City but City cannot reach the 1 million valuation.
Cardiff have offered 850,000(16)(9)Why join Bristol they are awfulBecause as bad as Bristol City are, Coventry are worse!Because he used to play for them and still has friends at the club!Because his wife to be is Bristolian

That would make senseBecause he recently got married just down the m4 in portishead and thats where his new wifes family is and he still has alot of mates in the area.How are bristol city awful? it was just a bad season.. 3 top half finishes and a playoff final in the last 5 seasons. but look at the end of last season, 8 unbeaten and 2 defeats in the last 12! cant be that bad plus theres better options than keogh! Amougou and McManus to name 2McManus as club cpatian as wellBelievable IMO. Person up though, your wrong. He didn't get married in Portishead, he got married in Somerset. I happened to be working at the wedding, players such as David Noble was also there. I'd take him back..

I've heard its worrying times in newcastle with the following leaving.
Ba Tottenham
Cisse Madrid
Colochini city
Tiote chelsea
Krul tottenham
Cabaye arsenal(27)(32)Can see ba and cabaye going not sure about cisse going to madrid thoughWhy would Cisse go to Madrid he would just be a bench warmerLoad of rubbish. Most likely Ba. All the rest why would cisse n cabaye leave after one season in which Europe has been achieved, moving up. krul to spurs is likely eventually to replace Brad Friedal but not for a few years and he just signed a 5 year deal. so big money. And collo just signed a new 5 year deal i think in the last season or 4 years at least. Stop talking rubbish.Its just what I've seen on various site, most off ssnContracts mean nothing, all of these players will leave, they're too good for a team like noocarsleCity after colo so money no object 2 prem teams in battle for tiote sky sports cisse proved goal scorer why not join madrid double wages ba will leave and take half the 7m fee with him ashley will cash in and tell car to find cheap replacementsThey would be stupidly rich selling that lot. They could buy decent replacements so even if this is true I wouldn't panic if I was a Newcastle fan!The longer the contracts the bigger the fee the clubs have to paySame sky sports news linking city with thiago silva. N collo although 29 would warrant at least 13 mill to be sold, plenty for replacement. chelsea i doubt would look at Ba with the strikers they have coming through n looking to buy. Cabaye potentially is the cheapest of the lot to go, so would be a concern. But he would only leave for a united, Bayern, Arsenal. Top team guaranteeing top footy. But Newcastle have plent of money now n plenty coming thorugh so should be looking all right evn with maybe 2 losses out of the bunch. Up the toonYeah sell more than half your starting line up sounds legit, anyone want ben arfa too we're having a clear outHow can you say all these players are too good for newcastle when they are essentially the starting line up and are the very essence newcastle? the entire team is too good for the team? makes no sense

Chris Martin to Nottingham Forest for 1.5mil {Ed013's Note - Coldplay won't be happy!}(6)(22)Forest have no money, they owe the Doughty estate 75m and they are losing 1m pound a month. They cannot afford to spend 1 on a player never mind 1.5m1.5m - they haven't got 150,000 to their nameJust to clarify forest do not owe 75 million it was a personal investment by mr doughty from his own wealth,he has funded us again for the coming season with 25 million to honour is agreaments,true we cnt go buying players or even offer any new contracts until investors are found,but owing 75 million is untrue.Lol you don't pay owners back its not like borrowing from a bank
they pump money in to the club expecting to make profit through their investmentEdp (local paper) last week that round about 450.000 would be enough. We would love u to pay 1.5 million. As norwich fan i would like him to stay. Ncfc matt25 million does not have to be repaid but 55 million of it does, so if anybody is silly enough to buy florrest they have to buy that debt as well

Southampton are plotting a £2m raid for Millwall's 23-year-old midfielder Liam Trotter, who has also been linked with Fulham and Sunderland.(15)(8)As Millwall value Trotter more highly than Morison, 2m isn't likely to be enough to tempt KJ to sell.This one is legit. It's been in a couple of papers. Played under NA before, this would be good, he looked lively every time I saw him last season including against us(saints).Good move imhoAlready agreed to join crawley^
Oh yeah because I'm sure he'd rather play for Crawley than in the premier league! Have a word.Who are crawleyWe should exchange players in the deal. Need to shift some deadwood. Get rid of Hammond +2million for Trotter, done deal.Ha CRAWLEY! WTF!?

Loads of rumours going round especially abut keepers to start with Green, Gomes, Robinson, Given, Foster, some lad who managed to get into the England squad despite not even playing for Birmingham (not saying he is no good) but my pick would have to be Ben Foster or Paul Robinson, money not a problem but time will tell. Defenders Chris Samba (good buy) but doubtful knew his move to Russia would be a mistake and proven by the banana incident but I still think his club won't let him go, Tiawo obviously did quite well for us last season but looks like his heart is elsewhere, Fabio not sure on him, talented yes, mentality to deal with a season at Loftus Road?? Not sure the fans will take to him. In midfield let's hope the Jenas rumour is rubbish don't want another Dyer, Diakite would be a great signing came on no end at the end of last season but something playing in my mind about those 'missed games'. Need something there just don't know what Sparky is thinking, yet. On the more attacking options Hoilett will be going elsewhere, Moses keeps on being mentioned don't see why he would join us (except for ££££) Andy Johnson however much I don't like him I see it makes sense but again he has options along with Yakubu, Owen seems to be more of a paper rumour than anything, Defoe maybe but don't think that will happen, which brings us to Del Piero, has he retired ?? is he looking for a challenge or a pay day ?? I can see the board wanting him to promote QPR's global brand (always makes me laugh) and he has undoubted talent but really can't see it happening most likely will end up in the far east or the US if he is playing on. Conclusion, who knows, last window I knew a couple of the signings that would be made, just worries me that if we don't act sooner rather than later we will miss out, we know we are not Man U or have a great drawing power for players, but in Sparky & the board we trust, I mean at least it's not Ecclestone, Briatore and the poor soul who they tell what to do!!(6)(8)Wouldn't be QPR if things were simple. Totally agree we need to act sooner rather than later and could do with sorting the Barton situation out. Also heard more rumours like Dann, Roger Johnson and Rhodes but it's more because they are likely to move somewhere rather than to QPRAre you not aware that Foster and Robinson have retired from international football so it does not matter how much you pick them unless you tell them they are No1 they would not play.This is a post about QPR rumours what is that post about international retirement got to do with anything, even if you thought it was about England no1 spot and only read the first part I also mentioned Gomes and Given. Never mind eh!Foster,moses and samba have all been mooted and have it from a very good source that we have made enquirys about berbatov. Diakete seems like he may have been tapped up from a club in north london.Realistic QPR assessment - you're the sort of supporter that gives the club hope and creditNot true I believe the club deserves all the credit it deserves, I honestly think we will stay up next season and develope going forward my points were people who have been rumoured and some of the sad realisms of football especially what appears to be happening with Diakite. Mostly just suggesting that we should act now as we are don't have the drawing power of the top 4-5Up on the nancy website,diakete has signed up.

Stoke Interested In Crewe's Young Attacking Player Nick Powell As He Has Not Signed For Man Utd Stoke Willing To Pay 3 Million For The Highly Talented Striker And Also Are In For Matt Jarvis John Brayford Hugo Rodallega Jermaine Defoe Scott Dann Romelu Lukaku Lets Just Wait And See What Happens(12)(14)I hope we get a few of these but not so sure about dann as he snubbed us before but he could be a replacment for huth, i would love defoe and jarvis though, come on you mighty pottersI'd like to c jarvis Defoe and lakaku he looks a right hand full and could solve our goal crisisDidnt know stoke had 30m to spendStoke have more than 30 mill if they want... There owner is worth 800 mill hahaStoke owner has more money and time for the club than most owners the only problem is that is wants to see results with a manager that likes to while and deal with 20-30mil a sumerStoke are NOT after Nick Powell. Defoe is looking a possible go-er if deals happen elsewhere and a deal was agreed in Jan. Stoke agreed a fee with Jarvis to come but Jerome was part of the deal and he turned down Wolves as Whelan did last Jan.Wouldnt want to see jerome go, he looks sharp when he comes on, and could defo fill the fuller gapNick powell to stoke keep dreaming

Yeovil taking a look at Danny Shittu to partner Richard Hinds next season... although there are concerns over the lack of pace at the back and it would not be a surprise to see a loan signing take that position instead...

Yeovil have also enquired about the availability of a return for the want-away left-back Nathan Smith from Chesterfield... after a disappointing season, the demand could be estimated around 35k but on their budget this is unlikely to happen before July...

Another on-going question is the striking partner for Reid signed today. expect news surrounding Izale Mcleod (released - Barnet), Freddy Eastwood (released - Coventry), David Clarkson and Danny Haynes on possible loan deals...(7)(6)Yeovil might be able to pay for smith if they win npower fanpower which they were top of when i last lookedAgree with the above

Bristol will announce the signing of left back Paul Dixon early next week. The robins are also hot on the trail of 4 more players. With 2 players according to my source close to signing.

Ins:

Paul Dixon, Dundee Utd, £0
Mustapha Carayol, Bristol Rovers, £1m
Heidar Helguson, QPR, £300,000
Jody Morris, St Johnstone, £300,000
Matt Derbyshire, Forest, LOAN
Youl Mawene, Aberdeen, £0(3)(12)Dixon is retiring if not he is joining morton fcDixon - yes think its happening
Carayol - club have already said no on that one
Helguson - maybe as they do need that type of striker
Morris - linked in January to him just because he played for DM at St Johnstone
Derbyshire - maybe if Forest decide to cut their losses
Mawene - no wayIsn't Morris a free agent.. So no fee.
Blows this rumour out of the waterMustapha Carayol will not be leaving rovers without a chance ! so many clubs have come in for him and he wont say yes to anyone and Mcghee i dont think will let him goDerbyshire - lol, let me know where and when you want him, I'll gladly drive him down to you for free.Heidar helguson QPR'S top goal scorer wasnt in the team end of the season purely because of injury,300,000 dunno who you get the info off but and a mil to that and its more believable.

Crystal Palace to sign Gary MacKenzie from MK Dons and Paul McShane on a season long loan from Hull.(7)(2)Mcshane is out of contract and is joining palace permintPalace paying the Dons to take MacKenzie? Excellent news if true.McShane is not out of contract, but has one year to run at 20k+ a week. So he would be unlikely to join Palace at half of that. And Hull would be unlikely to loan him out while his contract expires.MacKenzie is not going

Sheffield Wednesday to announce a Gardner on Monday and are in talks with an unnamed striker this weekend after having a bid accepted. All I know is that it is not Maguire from Derby at this stage. {Ed013's Note - I thought they already had a groundsman!}(8)(3)A new gardner? back page stuffGardner is injury prone he cant play more than about 30 games a season03 Jun 2012 10:26:07
Rob Jones managed 32 league games last season, Buxton managed 36

So if Gardner hits the 30 mark we should be happy imo, as shown above two our mainstays from last season managed that amount. Gardner is a cut above (no pun intended) what we have currently for me, look at the praise he had from palace fans for example.Better off signing Charlie Dimmock! She got ground force! LolGardner is quality palaces best defender last season gardner llerra lee buxton reda johnson beevers rob jones just need back up CH and LBCloud cuckoo land do you sit there and make these upThis is true Gardner has signed a contractThis would of happened but Gardner did not pass his medical and therefore Sheff Wed will not sign him

Oldam Athletic youth team left back, Alexander Lodger, is expected to join Bristol Rovers on a free transfer in the coming week. Barnet youth team striker, Kamil Kaczmaz is also in talks with the Bristol club, aswell as former Northampton Town youth team centre half Daniel Elliott, who has completed a years suspension from football due to failing a drugs test, due to reported use of a controlled substance. These signings are set to be Bristols first summer signings.(1)(7)

 


03 Jun 2012 00:44:49
Luton Town manager Paul Buckle is expected to announce two new singings next week. He will bring forward Chris Zebroski, and midfielder Craig Stanley to Luton from former club Bristol Rovers. A fee of around £10,000 is reported to have been accepted for Zebroski, however Stanley is expected to arrive on a free transfer.(9)(4)

James Constable has agreed a 3 year, £3,000 per week contract with Bristol Rovers. Constable is set to move to Bristol for a reported fee of around 185k. The deal is expected to be completed late next week. Constable grew up around the Bristol area, and is reported to have watched and supported Bristol Rovers as youngster. He is reported to have asked for the number 10 shirt.(4)(20)It will be a lot more than 185k for constable and i think if he was to watch the muppets down in avon he would have watched a propper side like city and not roversWhere are Rovers getting 3k per week from??Well lets hope this happensJames Constabel, to date, HAS NOT signed for Bristol Rovers or any other club. Bristol Rovers have made two bids for him and also Northamption have made an enquiry. There is no secret that the relationship with Beano and Chris Wilder is not good. Basically Beano wants to stay and fight for his place and the club he loves. Wilder wants him out....The fans - the majority want him to stay. He has been loyal, hard working and a proven scorer until the problems with Wilder. But that is nothing new for Wilder to fall out with players - there is a long list. I fear Beano will leave and if it all goes wrong for us, Wilder wont be far behind.....(The management accept that the main reason we did not finish well last season is because we were not fit and strong enough? In my books, thats a 'bye bye' management, fitness coach(es) and a big kick up the backside to certain players). How can management etc admit the shortcomings and keep there job is beyond me.Bristol havent made a bid bristol rovers have!

Marvin Bartley will be going back to Bournemouth as part exchange for Marc Pugh. Also fee in region of 350k.(6)(12)No chance of Marvin coming back to Bournemouth. Lets just say, he and the Chairman don't see eye to eye.I can really believe this, Bournemouth have recently signed 2 attacking wing players (Gabban and McQuoid) who can do the job that Pugh does. We need to have back the job that Bartley can do in the sense of a semi defensive, box to box, tackling midfielder.Bartley wont be back at afcb he hates mitchell for a start and second he seems pretty happy up north, coming from an afcb fanThis is a none starter as everybody down here knows that him and Mr Mitchell traded a few blows when he forced his hand with a move to burnley. Would be great but won't happenMy cousin is going out with marvin and he said he was forced to leave bournemouth. He loves bournemouth very much and would love to come back but without eddie being there.

Swansea have announced the shortlist of managers they want to appoint after Brendon Rodgers left the club to be the new Liverpool manager. The managers are:
Rafa Benitez (no team)
Roberto Martinez (Wigan)
Simon Grayson (Huddersfield)
Gus Poyet (Brighton)
Paul Dickov (Oldham)
Mark Hughes (QPR)(3)(34)Heard similar rumours surrounding Benitez due to the very positive financial state of the club they feel the desire to branch out as there are big shoes to fill and the importance of a good manager is almost more important than the players in the prem... but im afraid the other candidates you list are not in the running but Holloway is another possible name to be thrown inUmm, what about jones? You know, the guy you are in talks with !Do not rule out Chris Hughton.Benitez - you're having a Giraffe
Martinez is settled at Wigan
Poyet won't leave Brighton
You couldn't match Hughes salary at QPR

Your new manager is JonesI really hope you're correct, Laudrup is by far the best candidate in my opinion and would not only have a good chance of persuading Gylfi to sign but would impress other prospective signings in a way theother names mentioned could not. He does not fit the Board's oft mentioned 'young and hungry' profile though, and more importantly has he ever expressed any desire to manage in the premier league. Let's hope so.Hughes would be a disaster anyhow. He has achieved very little and spent quite a lot of cash.Hughes wouldn't leave anyway. QPR have far more potential.Jones talks have broken downWhy would poyet give to a small town in Cardiff like swanseaTalks between Jones and Swansea have broken down due a sufficient amount of money for the the transfer budget that Swansea put in place. Dickov could actually leave latics for Swansea due to the good attacking football he has got his players to use this past season but the favourite at the moment looks like rafa benitezThe fans would never have Martinez back after the way he left the Swans!I said last week when a certain mr laudrup was at 20/1 that he would need to be considered. And would you believe it but the odds on Laudrup have dropped like a stone in water. He is now 2nd favourite at a nice 3/1. No compensation to be paid as he is out of work. No change to the footballing philosophy as playe the same sort of football. I really do NOT want Ian Holloway otherwise we change everything.Dickov good attacking football?
Don't think so. Check out our results from the second half of the last two seasons in which Dickov has been in charge..
A lot of HOOOOOOOF is used under Dickov.Dickov playing attacking football at oldham we finished 16th in league 1 and were lucky not to be relegatedIm a latics fan and I personally think we played decent attacking football at times but why would swansea want to have dickov as manager?Dickov is your only chance no one else would go to youWait a minute... wh would swansea want Martinez back after the way he left them?? u mean went to a bigger club in a better league with a chairman who he knows well and were he is a legend ?? People need to remember it was Martinez who got them into the championship and brendon rodgers who copied what Martinez did there... this was proven by Swansea trying to get Martinez assistant Greame Jones dispite theree being more experienced managers out there!!

And you can believe this Martinez only signed Jason Scotland from Swansea whereas Rodgers is going to rip the core of that team apart, Swansea fans will be wishing they had Martinez. {Ed001's Note - Rodgers did not copy Martinez at all, he brought his own style, Martinez left an excellent platform for it though.}Gus would be a great manager for swansea

michael laudrup to be appointed new swansea manager before the end of next week as graeme jones s out of the running.The gylfi sigurdsson deal will then be concluded as well as a couple by laudrup himself.(5)(12)I don,t mean to annoy you but Rodgers has said he plans to hyjack the sigurdsson deal on sky sports onlineSorry Swansea fans but Gylfi joined you for Brenda now he's gone you won't get him. He has no connection to the area or a love for the fans like he does at Reading. He will go to Liverpool or Reading.Would like to set the record siggi can sign for livepool but atm fee agreed wiv swans he will not join reading he does bo like it there he has friends there but has bad memories ov the fans and area whilst he is very fond of swansea that why he has been shoping for a new house tjere reading fans keep dreaming and stop being jelous plus rodgers will not intevine wiv swansea deal wiv siggo will only bid if no deal is finalised becausr sigg wants out ov hoffinhim
