United were today putting together a deal for Balotelli. He will be the only player signed if it goes through. Initial contact went well and the player wants the move. No other signings this preseason but still a chance of a major departure ( not Rooney )

MUFC Will Sign Akinfeev , Podolski , Ozil , Sjneider and Sanchez!

MR.MUFC

West Ham have already began discussions with Dan Gosling over a possible move to West Ham, even though he will be out for another 34 months (plus extra time to regain to full fitness). I can see West Ham obtainig his services as he is a versitile player who can play in an array of positions.

"In reposponse to the mystery south american that liverpool placed a deposit in january it was a young uruguay international, Nicolas Lodero. agent says that its to early for him to leave yet but is definatley looking to ply his trade abroad in the future. looks good on youtube. but don't they all. YNWA"


As someone else has already said Lodeiro moved to Ajaz in January, perhaps it could have been Matias De Federico

Unsigned wrote at 07 Jul 2010 21:39:44:

"Thats funny as Rafa said that he wanted to sign Danny Wilson because he could play for Liverpool as a homegrown player it something to do with playing there for 3 years he becomes homegrown due to his age."

I do not think that it is correct. My understanding is England and Wales – not Scotland. Sharkey.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:40:31
To the person who wrote this:

"I don't know if this means he is moving clubs or just fancies a change. However today I received a 16 Page document showcasing Alexander House as it up for sale. Alexander House is owned by Gary Neville. Decide for yourselfs what that means."

Neville is selling his house because he was refused planning permission to build a ecohouse on the grounds.

Now to rumours: Joe Cole to either Arsenal or Liverpool, shame would have liked to see him at United but I doubt Utd can afford his wages.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:46:23
Celtic are in negotiations with Marcus Berg and an unnamed Brazilian. Lennon set to reveal all on Monday.

Brazilian is known as the "new Rooney" in his homeland.

Exciting times.

Harry Redknapp was on Irish radio earlier and he said Liverpool will sign Joe Cole by the end of the week

Leeds and millwall are the front runners to sign aston villa's nathan delfouneso on loan, a villa insider informs me.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:51:49
Rangers

Rangers will be signing a minimum of four players before there tour of Australia, there main target Goodwillie ill sign after the powers that be realise they need to speak to complete this deal as it will benifit both teams.

We may be skint but we welcome the chase!!

Celtic will have better players on paper next year but with a clown for a manager they will end up winning nothing and throwing money away just like last season.

we are the people!

How come all these so called man utd fans want rid of Anderson. He has had bad injuries over the last 2 seasons but b4 that he was immense for us running the show against players like gerrard and fabregas. Give him a chance we will all be shouting his name as world class in a few years.

COMPLETELY AGREE, ANDERSON IS A CRACKING LITTLE PLAYER, HE HAS STRENGTH, SPEED, HES A GOOD TACKLER AND HIS PASSING AND ABILITY TO PLAY A THROUGH BALL IS IMMENSE, THE ONLY THING HE LACKS IS GOALS BUT THIS IS BECAUSE FERGIE HAS BEEN PLAYING HIM IN A MORE DEFENSIVE ROLE AS HARGREAVES AS BEEN OUT FOR A WHOLE SEASON.

WHEN HE PLAYED FOR PORTO HE WAS SCORING ALL OF THE TIME SO HE WILL FIND HIS SCORING SHOES AGAIN SOON, HES ONLY 22 YEARS OLD, HE WILL BE QUALITY NEXT SEASON AT UNITED AND PEOPLE NEED TO STOP LINKING HIM AWAY BECAUSE IT WONT HAPPEN, FERGIE LOVES THIS PLAYER AND IF YOU WATCH THE SPURS V UNITED GAME LAST SEASON YOU WILL KNOW WHY, HARRY SAID HE WAS A 'TRIFFIC' LITTLE PLAYER. HE DOMINATED THE SPURS MIDFIELD.

I HAVE HEARD THAT UNITED ARE LINING UP A 4 YEAR CONTRACT FOR SNEIJDER WORTH 100K A WEEK, 67% MORE THAN HE IS GETTING AT INTER. CLUB OFFICIALS HAVE FLOWN TO SOUTH AFRICA WAITING FOR INTER TO GIVE THEM THE GO AHEAD TO SPEAK TO HIM, WHEN HE RETURNS TO ITALY AFTER THE WORLD CUP HE WILL BE OFFERED A BUMPER DEAL BY INTER WORTH UP TO 80K A WEEK, INTER WANT TO KEEP THEIR MAN BUT 3035M WOULD BE TO GOOD TO TURN DOWN. HE HAS A DECISION TO MAKE ALTHOUGH I'M SURE ALL HE CARES ABOUT RIGHT NOW IS THE WORLD CUP.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ED? WILL UNITED BE ABLE TO PURCHASE HIS SERVICES? {editor's note – the only stumbling block I can see is Rafa, has he got over Fergie refusing to sell him Heinze yet?}

'Heard a rumour today that Celtic have enquired about Raul.Club hoping to make him the marquee signing on a pay + merchandise deal.Supposed to have a soft spot for Celtic, hope this deal if true comes off.

Jungle Bhoy''

Ive heard it all now! Unbelievable! This just makes me so frustrated but unfortunately this clown probably believes it! That mustve been a good dream you had, now away back to the jungle cos that's obviously where youve been living for for some considerable time! Honestly, im afraid ive had it with this now. The games finished with fans like this guy, crazy stuff.

This was just a rumour i heard, never said he was signing.This is a rumour site, yes?Not as stupid as most of the rumours on here.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:33:06
James beattie spotted at plymouth training fround today and is in deep negotiations over contract. deal to be confirmed in 34 days

we won't pay over 500,000 for a player once reid gets rid of 5 players at least he will be given 2 mil to spend if reid wants a player now the board will give him the money but has to trim down the squad so he can be given extra funds and if promoted he will be given 35 mil to spend fact we are not cash straped.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:34:27
Im a confused argyle did board give luggy 5 mil to spend is that true?

 

07 Jul 2010 21:35:50
Millwall signing scharner, tonge, mcclean, all for large fees, what bermondsey are you on mate, millwall are the small club down the road from the boleyn boneyard, plymouth to sign beattie yeah right he hates plymouth after suffering terrible abuse pre, during, and post a friendly match, in the press he even said how appaled he was by the fans treatment of him. Rumours should stay in the bedroom oh yeah that's why your on here.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:37:10
Ha all everton fans now saying gosling is rubbish why not just admit you're upset to be loosing him he is a great prospect and future england player. i've heard that west ham have set up a meeting with his agent in the next few days and are hopefull thigs can be sorted pretty queckly. if this comes off then noble and kovac are likely to be sold. editor does this sound realistic to you and do you know of any other west ham rumours?

adz {editor's note – to be fair to all the Everton fans I know, and unfortunately some are relatives too, they all say Gosling is just a back up player.}

PRESTON WOULD NOT SELL LONERGAN FOR OVER 2 MILL ! WHY WOULD HE GO TO MILLWALL REALLY ? he wna best keepers in the championship

After tieing up deals for Chamakh and Koscielny Wenger will look to make two more additions to his squad. These being Mesut Ozil, after a great world cup, Wenger sees him as the 'big player' that could persuade Cesc to stay, and the other being Eduardo dos Reis Carvalho, a portugeese goalkeeper aged 27, and who will let Vito Mannone and Wojciech Szczesny develop.

Arsenal Starting XI for 2010/11

Eduardo
Sagna Vermaelen Koscielny Clichy
Nasri Ozil Fabregas
Arshavin
Van Persie Chamakh

A team that will win the Barclays Premier League, and also the Champions League in the 2010/11 season, the greatest ever season and team for Arsenal football club.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:40:21
Argyle have given reid transfer funds but want to reduce squad so they can pay of debts that will be their way of paying the debts and will save board money to and that's a fact trust me argyle debts will be cleared of soon as we reduce squad to at least to 23.

 

07 Jul 2010 21:15:51
It's definitely not Ricardo Vaz te in the mystery Leeds player photo. I found this on his wiki On 30 June 2010 it was reported that Vaz Te had signed a threeyear deal with Greek Super League club Panionios.
It's also definitely not Febian Brandy. Maybe somebody won a competition to train with the squad for a day, who knows? {editor's note – the PFA have Vaz Te listed as a free agent still, so I am guessing his wiki is the usual fabrication done by someone with too much time on his hands.}

To the tool who said this about Glen johnson:

"..a player who clearly has struggling for form over the world cup."

what world cup were you watching? He was one of our best players and seeing how the rest of the defense performed that takes some doing. (best of a bad bunch). Anyway he won't be going anywhere..he's one of best assets after reina, stevie and el nino.

I don't know if this means he is moving clubs or just fancies a change. However today I received a 16 Page document showcasing Alexander House as it up for sale. Alexander House is owned by Gary Neville. Decide for yourselfs what that means.

Probley just a change because who would want a rb that can't run any more and is more or less retierd, only championship clubs who can't afford his wages!

 

07 Jul 2010 20:55:47
Jason Scotland is a reported target for Burnley boss to add more firepower to his squad since the loss of Steven Fletcher. Laws is so keen he is even willing to offer Tyrone Mears in partexchange for the former Swansea forward.

Other rumours include :

Joe Ledley Cardiff to Stoke (2 million compensation) plus Michael Tonge.

Alan Gow Plymouth to Notts County (100k)

Gary HooperScthorpe to Celtic (2 million)

Nyron Nosworthy Sunderland to Sheffield United (500k)



Joe Ledley is at Celtic Park ready to sign a four year deal with Celtic so he won't be signing for Stoke.

 

07 Jul 2010 20:57:24
Pratley fee and terms agreed today. No info on fee.Should
be announced on Friday. Delay was from Swansea end
with Sousa leaving. Shorey won't be signing so Forest have turned their attention to a loan deal for a young premiership left back (Van Arnholt?). Also bids have been received for McGugan and Garner no idea if these have been refused or not. Also been told we'll be having a couple of trialists join up with us in Portugal no names given as Forest don't want any potential deal being hijacked.

 

07 Jul 2010 20:57:43
Let me just explain best i can to the people of other teams who are trying to guess if we have the money from delph. nobody knows exactly because we ( leeds) are not a plc, but at the time a reporter from the yep who has strong ties and contacts at elland road wrote what he knew about the deal. it was 6 mil paid over 2 or 3 installments over 2 or3 years. with add ons though( appearences, internatianal call ups) the total fee could rise to 8 mil. if that was the case we would have at least 2 mil with more to follow. as far as 'it goes on wages' as some idiot on here suggested, that is se. the chief exec wrote an aricle in the yep stating that all running costs at elland road were covered by gate reciepts as long as we averaged 22000 a game ( we averaged 25000 last season wich leaves more in the kitty). hope that clears up the matter!! having said all that uncle ken is one tight get so i can't see us spending much money. garyd MOT

Man United news:

Inter Milan have confirmed that United have contacted them about a possible deal for Wesley Sneijder after the world cup.

SAF was quoted after last season finished.. "Berbatov will not be sold"

If Vidic confirms he wants to leave then either Giorgio Chiellini or Gary Cahill will be signed to replace him.

Van Der Sar, Neville, Ferdinand, Scholes & Giggs all need replacing as they all have only 1 or 2 years left in them.

Manuel Neuer i being looked at as a possible replacement for VDS but after his performance in the WC.. maybe his price tag will throw us off. Neville replacement is obviously Rafael who has great potential. Ferdinand replacement (when he retires) is Smalling. Sneijder is a 100% true rumour as a Scholes replacement as confirmed by the Inter president. Nani I believe will replace Giggs on the left of midfield.

Next season line up:
Van Der Sar

Rafael Ferdinand Vidic Evra

Hargreaves
Valencia Nani

Sneijder

Rooney Berbatov

To all utd fans claiming sneijder will be signing, this will never happen. Do you really think rafa is going to sell his best player to a manager he hates. FACT.
Lfc arent getting took over in this tramsfer window, torres isn't leaving but gerrard might be. Lucas is deffo staying and masch is considering staying now. SWP will be coming in instead of young, and klose is being considered but he will move to AC milan

 

07 Jul 2010 20:31:30
Re the long running Cesc story. Graham Hunter (British journalist based in Spain) made the point on Radio 5 last night that Wenger had been clever, (as others have pointed out today on the site), about whether Seb would get a game for Barca and is therefore less likely to move. But he did go on to say that he reckoned that if Barca were able to unload Ibra then it was highly unlikely that the Gunners would be able to keep him.

Editor do you have any news on Preston North End Rumours?

 

07 Jul 2010 20:46:00
Chelsea have signed Kalas for 5m from Czech side ''Sigma Olomouc'' he will return to them on loan for a year and will be the long term replacement for Bosingwa, next year is certainly bosingwa's last year and Chelsea are looking to the future.

It looks like i am spot on with Chelsea's spending this year, Belletti has been replaced with Kalas although Ivanovic and Bosingwa will play at right back next season. Benayoun has replaced J.Cole and Matic will replace ballack although Essien and Mikel will play for the majority of next season.

Expect Chelsea to buy Lukaku from Anderlecht, he will cost close to 10m and i would imagine that will be it for Chelsea this summer, one or two more youngsters will be signed but that will pretty much be that.

I don't know if this means he is moving clubs or just fancies a change. However today I received a 16 Page document showcasing Alexander House as it up for sale. Alexander House is owned by Gary Neville. Decide for yourselfs what that means.

THIS MEANS NEVILLE HAS FINALLY GOT PLANNING PERMISSION ON HIS NEW 'GREEN' FUTURISTIC HOUSE, IT LOOKS A BIT LIKE THE TELETUBBIES HOUSE BUT WITHOUT THE TUBBIES OF COURSE. IF HE HAS BEEN GIVEN PLANNING PERMISSION THEN BUILDING WILL COMMENCE, I HEAR NEVILLE WANTS TO RENT WHILE ITS BEING BUILT.

Celtic looks as if the have just got bargin of the centuary if you go on the bbc website and look at the agent speakin on the video he says they are impressed with a club with this size.And with the likes of liverpool interested in him ive got to say well done for i think the spl will love the players of ledley and bullard comin to celtic.
Do you think that Ledley mede the right choice ed and will that encourage more players to go to scotland ? {editor's note – I think he made the right choice, yes. He will get to play in Europe and have a chance of winning trophies every season, rather than joining Stoke or West Brom and be aiming for mid–table mediocrity or avoiding relegation. The signing fee will have him set up for life no matter which team he chooses, so it should be all about the trophies. It might well encourage others to move up to Scotland, hopefully it will, usually a big signing brings a boost for the league he joins.}

A west ham rumour here boys and girls. Avram Grant is looking at Dan Gosling to try and get him to come in on a free since he left Everton. A couple of the younger lads who have played England games with him have had phonecalls from him (apparently) to learn more about the club. Good signing? Ed? {editor's note – I would have said it was a good signing but I am a bit worried about his attitude now. The way he has left Everton leaves a nasty taste in the mouth. They have taken good care of him while he was injured only for him to force his way out, makes me wonder about him.}

Celtic Football Club Joe Ledley arrived in Glasgow at around 6pm, deal will be thrashed out tonight and could be on club's official website tonight. Will definetly sign within the next 24 hours. Jimmy Bullard was at Parkhead and Lennoxtown today and should sign by Friday night at the latest I would imagine. I have been told by a close Celtic source that they are expecting an answer from Sol Campbell sooner rather than later could be done and dusted within the next week. I was also told that Gary Hooper talks are at an advanced stage because thy had already started before Middlesborough started sniffing about which interrupted things but now Kris Boyd has signed for them talks have continued and are almost complete according to my sources. The wheels are beggining to turn at Paradise and The Hns will be shaking in their boots, god help them next season.

Please feel free to comment and ask questions.

Just been reading about and i looked at Steven Taylor's wiki page and it indicates he is on the verge of a move to Liverpool. I know wiki pages can be edited but it seems strange as I seen something suggesting he was ready to move to Liverpool. Ed, you reckon he would be the kind of player we should be looking at , maybe Carra's replacement. And also with the new rules coming into place. Have you heard anything more about Liverpool while where on the subject? {editor's note – I really don't rate Taylor, forget the fact he is one of the worst cheats I have ever seen, I just don't think he is a good player. The only reason I could see to sign him would be to fill a home grown quota.}

Though a quick google of him shows claims he was offered to EPL clubs last season, I am not sure if that is a good sign or not. Are Benfica in money trouble and so have to sell? Or did they just want to get rid of him?}

Editor Will Arsenal be signing a Goalkeeper? Also will they be signing any more players after signing Laurent Koscielny? {editor's note – if Wenger can get one he will be signing a keeper. But he won't just buy any keeper, so if he can't get one of the ones he wants, then he will just stick with Almunia. I am sure there will be more signings for Arsenal, probably ones none of us have ever heard of though.}

god bless celtic

I would HATE to see joe cole at spurs, he is over rated, lazy and so predictable with his double stepovers. however i have a reliable source which has confirmed with me that, micah richards, podolski, suarez, kjaer will sign for spurs as harry makes wonders in the transfer market yet again as he did with westham. jenas hutton ohara keane will all leave as woodgate will be given a pay as you play contract

Are you mad? why would suarez join spurs when man united and a host of other clubs are interested an you probably couldnt afford him, the same with podolski , he would never come to spurs there are better clubs interested!! as for kjaer hes all but joined steve mclaren at wolfsburg so forget about him. so i'd say get a better source!
as for joe cole looks like he's join the gunners

After the mess at Everton regarding Gosling Plymouth Argyle are set to complain to the FA over the loss of appearence fees and a sell on clause as the departure of Gosling was a muck up on Evertons fault due to the nature of the departure Everton could be forced to pay compensation to Plymouth this could be a figure of around £23million if the FA see fit that Everton were at fault for Argyle not recieving the money and seeing as they have already gone against Everton regarding the contract for Gosling it oculd be likely they will side with Plymouth

Norwich City to seal the signing of Sam Hutchingson by the end of the week, Loan subject to perm.
The last signing we should come next week but may come this week is Simeon Jackson, the Gills chairman has finally given in after the player has made it clear he wants to leave.
I have been right with all my other shouts about this club.

do u tink chelsea will sign any of these:


schweinsteiger 40 mil
muller 25 mil
ozil 25 mil
aguero 50 mil
ramires 20 mil
david luiz 14.5 mil
neymar 17.6 mil

{editor's note – I would say Neymar is the most likely, with Ozil and Luiz being fairly possible too. Oh and Aguero is very possible too.}

To whoever replied this!

To whoever said that obviously aint got a clue about rangers if they think that bougherra is the highest paid rangers player. think u might have to look that up dafty and come back on this slaughterin folk when u know the real facts.

I didn't post the piece you replied to, but come on common sense would point to the fact that rangers can't afford 45k a week, if bougherra is or isn't the highest paid doesn't really matter, its well documented that rangers are on a very tight budget and the reported 5mil for transfers may also cover wages, so if Bullard does come to Scotland he will be wearing Green and White.

Annoni1979
i think u willl find that celtic are working on a tight budget too. ledley free bullard loan campbell free cha du ri free mulgrew free. when did celtic splash any transfer fees? exactly. rangers don't come out and say they are going to sign this person or that person they do it behind closed doors. wer as celtic say they are going to sign everyone and anyone just to sell season tickets. best fans in the world haha don't make me laugh. attendances at parkhead lst season wer terrible.oh and all this rubbish about barrera travellin 12.000 miles.. think u will find his agent done the travelling to BRITAIN not just to speak to celtic either. west ham and newcastle are favourites to sign him. mcgeady to sunderland 6.5 million too. none of this mcgeady to barca, real madrid or man city for 200million crap!

Mr Editor, I don't want Carrick to leave Manchester United. Do you think that will happen? And do you think Man Utd could land Benzema, Oezil/Muller/Khedira and Sneijder? Please be honest.

Hopeful, though slightly worried Man Utd fan. {editor's note – I think Carrick will be on his way soon, may not be this summer but it won't be much longer. Ferguson is searching too hard for midfielders at the moment, and it is not going to be Fletcher or Gibson who make way. I don't think it will be this summer though, just in case Hargreaves isn't the same player he was before his injury. I can definitely see Carrick making way though, he looks old when I see him play, I know that might sound strange but he just looks like he is running through treacle at times, that is normally a good indicator that someone's legs have gone. Ozil is very much a possibility as his cub want to sell him before his contract expires and he has gone on record as hinting at wanting a move to the EPL. Not so sure about Muller and Khedira as I don't know enough about them, I have not seen any interviews with them other than with the German squad. Benzema is a tough one, he struggled last season but Jose has said he will get a chance next season so he might want to stay. I mean who wouldn't want the chance to play for Jose?}

Dan Gosling has left Everton on a free transfer and could be on his way to Newcastle as they are looking to offload Alan Smith, although he probably will end up staying due to a lack of interest. Martin O'Neill is also interested in taking him to Villa Park but he isn't their first choice.

Joe Cole will agree to sign for Tottenham in the next 2 weeks. Cole was hoping for a move to Man Utd. Spurs are also readying an £8m bid for Micah Richards.

Javier Mascherano may still leave Liverpool for around £25m this summer as Roy Hodgson would rather sell him than Gerrard or Torres. Although Torres will seek talks with the club about it's plans for the future. I still expect Torres to leave for anywhere between £30m £45m.

Igor Akinfeev has been sounded out by Man Utd about joining them for free at the end of this coming season as they now see him as the replacement for Edwin van der Sar. Arsenal may also join the race for him but Utd are Igor's first choice. He also hasn't ruled out staying at CSKA.

Hello im a leeds fan any real rumours about a good striker coming in.hooper to celtic so does anyone have any rumours please.

 

07 Jul 2010 19:08:07
========================
''he traveled 12,000 miles to check out what we had to offer so shut it''

Think you better shut it. He might have travelled all that way but once he clapped eyes on the first ugly celtic fan he wouldve turned on his heels and ran. very fast.

Koscilency (spelling?!) to Arsenal in the next 48 hours. Loic Remy a target for Spurs as is Forlan but is probably outside their budget. Man Utd to move for Benzema, i think theyve made enquiries on the quiet and have been told they can have him if the price is right, so expect Berbatov to be sold. Liverpool will have to sell before they buy and im sure Torres will be away with Chelsea most likely destination but Barca also a good shout for him. Failing that Chelsea will move for Sergio Aguero.
=======================

Liverpool have tabled an opening 10m bid for Costa Rican striker Bryan Ruiz. Hodgson had seen him several times last season and was very impressed, now he is at Liverpool see's him as an ideal partner for Fernando Torres.
Also Liverpool will refuse an offer of money plus Balotelli for Mascherano as they don't see it being a good enough offer.

I can shed some light on the D Wilson to LFC question, Liverpool were very keen in the beginning but three things stalled the move 1. Rangers decided to up the price 2. LFC also know his contract is running out so the upped price with this and the fact that Danny wants to join LFC put a lot of doubt into the move now especially as LFC's budget is tight 3. He does not meet the 'homegrown' quota for the EPL so therefore they do not want to be heavily spending on young player with 1 year left on contract that wouldn't help towards this quota (hence the stories linking them with Taylor from Newcastle)

I work as a catering assistant at Carton House in Dublin where Newcastle United are currently training as part of their preseason. I saw American midfielder Michael Bradley getting out of a black mercedes outside the front entrance.

Talks must be taking place and due to Newcastle's limited transfer budget the deal must be cheap or financed from Steven Taylors rumoured move away from the club.

OK ED..Ledley is back in Glasgow right now..you know what i said in my earlier post and as you stated he prefered an EPL Team to a SPL Team..i guess not my friend.some of you from down England have no idea about the pulling power of Celtic and as a world wide Brand.Not many Clubs will ever match that no matter how much money they have.No one comes to celtic out of courtesy for a start that's a detrimental statement that's just backfired BIG TIME! {editor's note – like I said he must have been impressed by what he saw. No idea where you get the detrimental bit from, the lad said he wanted an EPL club, words from his own mouth, but then he also said he wanted Cardiff to have the compensation. I think you forget that he was only wanted by Stoke and West Brom when you talk about your great pulling power. Do you really think your great pulling power would have won out if Man Utd wanted him? No I didn't think so.}

To the numpty who said this "Dan Gosling will not be fully rehabilitated until Sept earliest. He is a great kid who has been treated shabbly by Everton (there are issues) Everton have messed up big time and lost his services for free, Plymouth Argyle too will loose add on payments based on appearance and sell on clause."
I don't think Everton treated him shabbly at all considering we verbally offered him a contract if he reallt wanted to stay then he would have accepted this verbal contract rather then taking the club to a tribunal so he could leave for a free. Also the club helped him through his injuy and paid £28,000 for a stairlift to go round his spiral staircase to help his rehab. Gosling is the one who has treated Everton Shabbily

07 Jul 2010 18:29:37
Having landed Koscielny for an estimated £8.7m, Arsenal have been discussing the possibility of a swap deal with Juventus involving Gael Clichy and Felipe Melo. Arsenal have Kieron Gibbs ready to fit seamlessly into the left back position, and Melo would bring the desired strength and power to the midfield. as much as i rate clichy, i do believe he is defensively vulnerable, and gibbs would present an improved defensive option whilst guaranteeing similar attacking guile. if this deal happens, pedro botelho would become back up left back, possibly signalling the end of armand traore's arsenal career.

Would people stop saying that German players are moving to the premiership.Most clubs are skint in England. Bayern Munich are a big, successful, rich club so they won't be selling their stars like Lahm, Muller and Schweinsteiger. Klose may possibly leave as Bayern Munich do not play him that often.

Any lcfc rumours?

 

07 Jul 2010 18:07:47
Inter Milan president Massimo Moretti has told SAF to make a bid for Wesley Sneijder that he cannot refuse. United are due to make a £35m bid for Sneijder who joined Inter from Real Madrid for £13.5m last summer.

Rafael Benitez has told Moretti that he wants Javier Mascherano at Inter Milan. Now, Inter Milan definately do have money to spend so I'm not sure why they would have to sell first to buy..

Arsenal have tied up a deal for Laurent Koscielny. £8.5m is the price paid and is the replacement for William Gallas apparently.. Now I read a rumour here a while ago that Gallas would leave Arsenal on a free transfer.. Any rumours as to where Gallas will end up next season?

Lads I have recently been told by one of the odds advisers at William Hill (where I work) that the odds of a few liverpool transfer odds have been slashed down, for instance:
Bryan Ruiz is now almost definetly joining
Rene Khrin on loan from Inter
Figeuroa is at 21
also reina to leave is 85

 

07 Jul 2010 17:37:55
I would expect to see Arsenal put in a bid for Meslut Ozil of Germany, not sure if they would be able to get him, he would probably prefer Barca or somewhere but i don't know why with xavi and Inessta and most likely Fabregas. I support Arsenal and great to hear about Konsciely

Joe Ledley is telling friends in Wales that he has agreed to sign for Celtic. As has been reported on Wales Online, Ledley has opted for Celtic ahead of moves to Stoke and despite interest from Liverpool. I understand that Ledley was impressed by the pitch Neil Lennon made to him and "felt wanted" by Celtic. Ledley has been a prime target for the club since it became clear that Neil Lennon was to be appointed manager. Joe Ledley should complete a medical within the next couple of hours and, barring anything unusual, we have been told to expect a press conference tomorrow morning. Ledley's friends say that he is now effectively a Celtic player.



I hear that the contract is for four years with a further year option with a salary comparable with our star players. I have also been told to "expect a busy few days" by our usual sources.

Stoke will complete 3 signings all based in london early next week. Danny Rose will be the first when he completes is season long loan and joins the potters.Followed by the transfer of Mark Noble from West Ham and Millwalls highly rated Steve Morrison.
All from a very good source.

News regarding Fernando Torres.He probably won't leave Liverpool F.C. These are the reasons why he can't go to other clubs.
Barcelonacan't pay wages and need to take out a loan.
Inter MilanTorres doesn't like Benitez
Real MadridTorres hates them.
Premier league clubsHe said he will never play for a different premier league club.
All other possible clubs can't afford his wages or transfer fee.

 

07 Jul 2010 17:42:36
I don't know if this means he is moving clubs or just fancies a change. However today I received a 16 Page document showcasing Alexander House as it up for sale. Alexander House is owned by Gary Neville. Decide for yourselfs what that means.

To the guy that said:

I would HATE to see joe cole at spurs, he is over rated, lazy and so predictable with his double stepovers. however i have a reliable source which has confirmed with me that, micah richards, podolski, suarez, kjaer will sign for spurs as harry makes wonders in the transfer market yet again as he did with westham. jenas hutton ohara keane will all leave as woodgate will be given a pay as you play contract

Kjaer's move to Wolfsburg is pretty much done and a friend of mine that is supporters representative to Ajax has told me that Suarez will stay for another 12 months then go. And before people start saying "supporters representative" means nothing, if you know Dutch football you will know that the supporter groups have much more power than in the UK due to their hooliganism tag, they even ousted a previous Chairman and have a lot of say over who manages the club. Lived their for 2 years and was a season ticket hold in 210, have seen it first hand how much power they have, they even run the clubs supporters bar next to (or in at some clubs) stadium to keep the violence to a minimum.

Laurent Konscily has officially joined Arsenal my source the Arsenal website!!
Great news, especially after the realse of William gallas and silvestre so at least we know Arsene is going to sign players and can see where we need to improve!!
It was for and undisclosed fee, but it is meant to be in the regions of 8.510mil.
Wtched a few clips of him on youtube to see what he's like not to bad good strong, tall and isn't scared of getting hurt he is only 24 so great news.
He will wear the number 6 shirt and I will expect to see him at the emirates cup

07 Jul 2010 17:37:38
With the completion of the Koscielny deal, Arsenal only need to make 2 more signings, provided Fabregas remains at the club. if not, it will need to be 3.
firstly, we need a keeper. Schwarzer has been mentioned. personally, im against the idea. the guy is very experienced, but made crucial mistakes at the world cup and is definitely slowing down. more attractive would be Portugal keeper Eduardo, who is available for a similar fee to Schwarzer despite being 10 yrs younger. he's had a decent world cup and looks better than almunia. also szczesny should be able to oust him in 2 seasons lol.
secondly, we need a DCM, preferably somebody who can also play CB comfortably. I would love to see Khedira, Inler or Melo at the club.
thirdly, if Cesc leaves we will need a replacement. Gourcuff, Oezil and Montolivo are viable options. in any case i would like a move for either Joe Cole or Gai Assulin.
I say let Eduardo leave for everybody's benefit. sell traore, promote Botelho. retain Campbell. let Almunia or Fabianski go.

but I have heard that 2 well known Hollywood actors are a part of the consortium Samuel L. Jackson (who fell in love with the city when making 51st state, and Mike Myers (whose family originate from the city). Has anyone else heard anything similar?

What i heard a few ago, was there was more interest from the states & one of the men involed was in the forbes top 10 in the worlds rich list.

Myself i am sick of all the rumours now & am just waiting to see when & if the yellow bar comes across my TV saying breaking news liverpool have been taken over.

Joe cole has had talks with Liverpool and Totenham and will decide after his holiday.
No other club has shown an interest.
It's between the Pool or Spurs.

=======================
''I had to laugh at seeing Derek Riordan for RANKERS , being that dek is one of my closest friends trust me when i say he wouldn't sign for RANKERS if they were the only club on earth , keep off the glue my man''

Being a celtic fan, you probably sold the glue you clown. SEPTIC did nothing for Riorden and its well known that he would happily work under Walter Smith and Ally McCoist so stop pretending to be one of closest friends and shut up. This is a deal that could happen.

oh and laurent koscielny has just signed this minute for arsenal its on skysports news as well

Just going to make it clear about Fernando Torres. I cannot see him leaving Lfc because Barca are skint and can't pay wages, he hates Real Madrid, he doesn't like Benitez, other italian clubs are too defensive for him and he said if he leaves Liverpool it won't be for another premier league club. Mascherano looks set too leave but Gerrard is happy where he is and thinks that Hodgson will take the club forward .KLOSE to Lfc

 

07 Jul 2010 17:10:44
Editor Any news/opinions with regards to Chelsea? Anyone you think they are very likely to bring in? {editor's note I have nothing new newswise for Chelsea, they don't look to be making major changes. But then that is not Ancelotti's way, I think it will be 2 more ins and neither big buys and possibly one big signing to shift shirts.}

I am beginning to wonder whether SAF is changing his tune on transfers. With the fan unrest i get the impression the pressure is on the glazers to back the manager after a poor season. Maybe SAF will take advantage of this and we could see another summer like 2007 when we saw nani, anderson and hargreaves come in. Put it this way, if we sell Vidic for £20million (minimum), Berbatov for £1015million and Carrick for £12million that gives us around £45million on top of any budget SAF has which we'll say for arguments sake is £25million. So a £70million budget would allow us to bring in Sneijder for £35million, Cahill £15million, Ninis £10million and maybe Benzema on loan as part of the Vidic deal. Obviously this is massive speculation but the situation at the club isn't as bad as the doom sayers would like to think. Im not saying i expect this to happen but its possible. Any thoughts ed? {editor's note – there must be some money to spend as United are chasing a striker all of a sudden.}

BREAKING NEWS,

Roy Hodgson has managed to snap up Luka Modric from Tottenham with a 15 Million part exchange deal for Glen Johnson. This is expected to be confirmed within the next 24 hours.


Sorry its taken so long to reply to this but with all the laughing I fell over and knocked myself out. Come on do people really think thay Harry would exchange one of european footballs most wanted assests for 15 million and a player who clearly has struggling for form over the world cup. Anyway don't Tottenham already have Corluka and kabul covering the rightback position.

 

07 Jul 2010 16:33:16
Ed, i have been told that blackpool are looking to sign 3 chelsea players on season long loans, aswell as another player on a transfer. the 3 loans are di santo, cork and bruma, and sinclair will be sold for £3.5mil, is there any truth in this, and do you know the situation with di santo where he will be playing next season {editor's note – I am sure they can't have 3 players on loan from one side at a time. I was told Sinclair was available for what I was told was a nominal fee of under a million pounds, it is possible they were expecting to get nothing and suddenly found that teams were willing to pay. I am not sure what is happening with Di Santo, I really wouldn't want to hazard a guess on that one.}

Pablo Barrera to Glasgow Celtic, are you kidding me? There is no chance he will join Lennon and Co. NO CHANCE!! He is attracting interest from Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Espanyol, Atletico Madrid and West Ham United. He will not be plying his trade in the SPL. Dream on.

there must be a slight possibility if his agent decided to make a 12,000 mile round journey to talk to celtic(stv) also the player may see celtic as an ideal stepping stone to clubs like man u as he will get experience of europe which whu and espanyol can't offer and i can't see him being good enough for spurs and man u at the moment

Roy wanted to sign Ruiz whilst he were at Fulham but accepted that Ruiz were out of his price range. {editor's note – ah right, so that would explain why the rumours are so strong. I have been hearing good things about Ruiz, sounds like a player that will fit in well in the EPL.}

Just spoke with Roberto Harrera (Gerrard Piqu's agent) He says a £25 million pound deal has been tabled to take the spanish star to Man City!

Also hearing rumours that Jermaine Defoe is set to sign for Aston Villa with Ashley Young going to Anfield.



Haha, so NOT funny.
Of course you spoke to Pique's agent, we all have, its so easy to get in touch with top players agents now a days!!
Also, Defoe, that's a definite. He said when Spurs get into the Top4 he will move to a team that will struggle to challenge for Europe. NOT!
STOP MAKING UP RUBBISH!!

Anyway Chelsea have been promised 1 marquee signing this summer, I think this will be Schweinsteiger (spelling), as Chelsea have declared Interest and I think he would wish to come to the English champions. This would cost 30M, which Ambrahovic (Spelling), would probably be willing to pay this for a star who has had a wonderful World Cup.

Expect a couple more signings may be made. Maybe Dan Gosling?? (Im not sure on that), Sylvain Marveux(spelling) might come (4m), a centre back will be signed, maybe David Luiz? (Benfica, 7m), a probably a striker, Thomas Meuller? (Bayern 12M)

One bad bit of news for Chelsea fans is that Real Madrid are looking to make a bid of 15M and Sergio Ramos for Ashley Cole. Personally, I would take this, Ramos is a young right back (which we need) and we have Zhirkov to take Cole's place, and we get 15M!!

Bosingwa, Carvalho, Deco, Hilario will be all released/sold

Cork, Van Aanholt (spelling), Stoch will all go out on loan to get experience.

So, to sum up:

IN:
SCHWESTINGER + MEULLER 42M (BAYERN)
GOSLING?? (FREE)
DAVID LUIZ 7M (BENFICA)
MARVEUX 4M (RENNES, CHELSEA HAVE GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH RENNES (CECH)
SERGIO RAMOS SWAP

OUT:
COLE 15M+RAMOS (R MADRID)
BOSINGWA 10M (BAYERN)
CARVALHO 6M (BACK 2 PORTO)
DECO 3M (FULHAM)
CORK LOAN (BURNLEY)
VAN AANHOLT LOAN (LEEDS)
STOCH LOAN (IPSWICH)

IN: = 53M
OUT = 34M

NET SPEND = 19M

Ambramovich will be happy to spend 19M, don't you think

Ed, what do you think?

Please comment/respond

Daveee {editor's note – I haven't heard anything about Ramos to Chelsea at all, I would be very surprised if they were willing to let him go.}

A cracking signing for Hull, they have been crying out for a decent striker.


fryatt's goin nowhere for now solano has left leicester and probably will join up with np at hull

Laurent Koscielny will be revealed as Arsenal's first defense signing this summer on Wenger's press conference this Friday. He will be given the #32 shirt (yes, the one Merida used to wear). He WILL be given the chance to start in preseason friendlies and fight for a place on the pitch pairing up with Tommy V.

Should Campbell decide to join Celtic, another CB will be bought, the most probable target Verthongen (Tommy's partner in the Belgian national team).

Van der Wiel will be pursued only in the case of Sagna leaving, which I sincerely doubt.

Fabregas is going nowhere. Its as simple as that and is down to cash. Barca are unwilling to pay more than 40m, but they just announced that a transfer kitty of almost 80m is available, so AW knows they have enough money and will not settle for less than 50 of those millions. Fabregas himself is on a softer stance now having watched 6 of his "future teammates" at Barca make the starting 11 for Spain (which he couldn't achieve). Maybe he is already giving some consideration to what HillWood said he's not guaranteed first team football at Barca. Expect the boy to remain at the Grove for at least another season.

I heard the rumour a couple or more months ago that an Everton player would end up at Liverpool. I thought it would be Baines, Pieneer or Rodwell but it looks as though it is Gosling. Dont know that much about him (only he scored against us). Bitter boys, is he any good? Where does he play? Will he get into the side of a big club?

"Roy Hodgson has managed to snap up Luka Modric from Tottenham with a 15 Million part exchange deal for Glen Johnson. This is expected to be confirmed within the next 24 hours."

Roy Hodgson has managed to snap up Luka Modric from Tottenham with a 15 Million part exchange deal for Glen Johnson. This is expected to be confirmed within the next 24 hours. 'What at the same time you wake up with a woody and realise it was all just a dream?' As if Modric is going to LFC! And Spurs don't need that over rated waste of space Johnson either!

The Gosling story has now broken on Sky Sports. He has left Everton and is now a free agent. Expect a fair bit of interest there. Could be a controversial first signing for Hodgson! Koscielny's move to Arsenal also being confirmed on the channel so is a story that Guardiola wants to meet Wenger in South Africa to discuss the sale of Cesc Fabregas can just imagine the conversation: 'Mr Wenger, let's discuss terms over Cesc shall we?'
Wenger: '£70m told you a few weeks ago, now pss off and stop tapping up my players.'

LowerCentenaryRed {editor's note – it is more likely to be the end of the month before the first round of bidding is complete. Then the bids have to be considered and there might even need to be a second and even a third round of bids before the takeover is complete. Towards the end of August is probably the earliest it will be done.}

In response to:
Utd will sign Benzema + Sneijder (although i would prefer Schweinsteiger)

I disagree personally. We need something different in midfield..someone creative and someone who will get his fair share of goals. Schweinsteiger isn't that man. Hes fortunate enough to be part of this German team at the moment which means his stock will rise but i don't see what he can bring to the midfield that fletcher, carrick and a fit hargreaves etc don't already. However i would love to believe the first part is true. If we signed Benzema and Sneijder then i may just wet my pants with excitement. Not sure if its likely though. Depends on the transfer fees and whether Rafa wants to hand over his best player to Fergie.

 

07 Jul 2010 14:46:32
Liverpool will look to stregthen both the team and the clubs finances by signing 2 opf Japan's best performers in the Worlo Cup, Keisuke Honda and Yasuhito Endo. This would firmly place Liverpool in a great financial and commercial situation in the Far East which is one area of the globe that Liverpool are trying to stregthen their brand. Yasuhito Endo would provide decent cover for Steven Gerrard (who will stay) and Alberto Aquilani who will be first choice central midfielders in the Liverpool squad. Keisuke Honda is a versatile midfielder and would be a perfect replacement for Yossi Benayoun. The only problem with Honda would be a potentially high transfer fee demanded from CSKA Moscow. Roy Hodgson is targeting another versatile player in FC Twente's Bryan Ruiz. He is a natural left sided winger who can also play off the striker. He was used both as a winger and 'in the hole' last year for Steve McClaren and scored an impressive 24 goals in 34 games. As he is Costa Rican, a work permit may be a problem.

 

07 Jul 2010 14:48:16
Manchester united transfer rumours
In:
Dan Gosling on a free
Wesley Sneijder £29m
Karim Benzema £25m
Gary Cahill £15m
Igor akinveev £15m
Out:
Micheal carrick £8m
Dimiter Berbatov £11m
anderson £10m

Very unlikely to say the least, PSG offered 11m for Anderson in January and it was quickly refused, he will not leave for less than 12m, in my opinion he will not leave at all. Berbatov scored 12 goals for United last season and made even more assists so 11m is way beneath the mark, Bayern, Wolfsburg and AC Milan are all reported to start their bidding at 14m, so he will leave for between 1518m, Carrick has had a mediocre season for United but he is an England international with bags of international, Champions league experience under his belt, he will fetch between 1012m no problem.

Editor what do you think these three players will end up going for if they are indeed sold? {editor's note – probably about 15m each is what they will go for, maybe 20m for Berbatov. That is about what I would expect this summer anyway.}

For all the Arsenal fans..

I have never posted as I don't believe in spreading rumours just for the sake of it. I am not an Arsenal fan but I have it from inside the club that Fabregas has been given permission by Wenger to talk to Barca and that a fee in the region of £4045mil has been agreed. Apparently Wenger has a policy of "if you tell me to my face you want to leave, you can leave". And this is what Fabregas has done.
He is a great player but for that kind of money, I'd back Wenger to pick up a gem to replace him.

Man United possible ins

Benzema 25m
Sneijder 30m
Hernandez 6m
Smalling 7m

Outs
Foster 6m
Tosic 8m
Berbatov 15m
Carrick 10m

United spent 20m last year on Owen, Obertan & Valencia, so going by that figure United have 20m to spend again this year, they have 14m from the sales of Tosic and Foster, with the sales of Berbatov and Carrick for 25m United still fall 9 million short of buying Sneijder and Benzema.

Ed do you think the Glazers will allow fergie to have 29m this season? If it is to purchase two Big signings like these two? Or do you think Anderson will have to be sold as well? {editor's note – I very much doubt Anderson would need to be sold or will be sold for that matter. Fergie has a lot of faith in him.}

Figueroa to Liverpool is almost a done deal

Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres both feel they should stay for at least one more season and over see this transitional period, Gerrard is keen for signings to be made to beef out the squad and Torres is upset at the treatment of Rafa Benitez and whilst seriously considering his future has been convinced by his friends Gerrard and Reina to give things another year.

Despite saying he would not raid Fulham a deal is already in motion to bring Hangeland to Liverpool as the player has stated his wish to follow Hodgson to Liverpool.

Other players submitted on Hodgson's wish list are Ruiz, Ireland, Gilberto Silva, Scott Parker, Joe Cole, Belhadj and surprisingly Craig Bellamy's name has been suggested(cant see this myself but it's from a reliable source)!

Ryan Babel will be given a proper chance to ressurect his Liverpool career as Hodgson is an admirer of the player and Glen Johnson will not be allowed to leave

However wantaway Mascherano will be allowed to leave to the highest bidder, along with Riera, Insua, and Lucas leiva (two of which may be Inter bound, with Riera to Juventus) Kuyt has also not yet commited to the club with Rafa poised to raid his former club for the player

 

07 Jul 2010 14:31:38
In response to: What are you on about if reina had been bidded for iam sure everyone would know, and the guy that said arsenal are buying van bommel and babel that is rubbish, we may fight for ozil, in mid that's about it, maybe gourcouff if fabregas leaves and defense they are shocking the people you have mentioned, we have been linked with subotic (quality) and chellini, so that vertongen guy wtf btw. has got no chance, and schwarzer is old we need igor akinfeev from cska he is class. ps stop posting crap. {editor's note Liverpool did publicly reject an offer for Reina from Arsenal mate.}

Do yourself a favour and stop rating players based upon newspaper valuations and Football Manager. Chiellini is massively overrated. He hasnt got the skill or heart to be a premiership centre half. Subotic has potential but is lacking that extra yard of pace and his needs to work on his awareness and positional sense. Im no Arsenal fan but Vertonghen is a very decent player. He can play in defence or midfield, is technically sound and already has a good working partnership with Vermaelan from their Ajax days together. Then again i imagine that you were one of those people that said "who the hell is vermaelan"

Gosling will not sign for anyone who aren't willing to play him center midfield. Also he is currently injured with a "Ruptured Cruciate Knee Ligament" which means he will be out of action till Late 2010/Early 2011. This therefor means that he wouldn't be able to pass a medical.

Everton will resign and Moyes will be willing to give him center midfield starts as we have Seamus Coleman to cover right back.

 

07 Jul 2010 14:40:15
To the person dismissing the Van Bommel rumour although I accept your logic. Arsenal haven't released Gallas and Campbell because they're over 30. Gallas wanted an inappropriate pay rise which wasn't ever going to be offered and Campbell is still assessing his options, he's not technically been released.

So they're not really very good examples to use. In fact, it's fair to say that Wenger has no problem with signing someone over 30, he just generally only offers a 1 year rolling contract though Gallas got offered 2 years, but like I say, wanted more money so is off.

another man city fan making up rubbish ozil said he will only consider man utd or chelsea but arsenal are reported to make a 20m bid for ozil so it is impossible are city to sign him

Ed, sorry to bug you (especially as you seem to be getting everyone asking you for the insider info these days) but someone named Paul Lagan from Chelseamad.co.uk is claiming that Chelsea will sign Torres within two and a half weeks. He quotes 'inside sources at the club' which is obviously suspiciously vague. Is there anything in this? I get the feeling Torres IS about to join Chelsea and this probably means only one thing that we have no budget for quality players??!! {editor's note – I would suggest he is just taking a chance on being proven right, no one knows yet what Torres is going to do. I really seriously doubt he will sign for Chelsea, I wouldn't be surprised if he left Liverpool though.}

Just because Davie Moyes said that he has sympathy for Luis Suarez, doesn't mean Everton are going to sign him:
"During a press conference in Sydney, Moyes was asked whether he would expect his players to do the same thing if in similar circumstances.
"Yes, " he replied. "If there's a chance (of staying in the game) by handballing it he knows he is going to get sent off but there is a second chance."
Everton will get 4mil from the Gosling saga and this will go straight to the Ben Arfa 8mil deal or a cheaper alternative Sessegnon 6mil. The sale of Yobo to West Ham will fund a deal for highly rated Jan Vertonghen of Ajax to join up with Fellaini. The sale of Pienaar will fund a deal to sign Landon Donovan for 9 mil.
You head it first here.

SSN have just confirmed Gosling has left Everton on a free, you will receive nothing for him.

REGARDING THIS COMMENT

Having brought in Jay McEverley yesterday (06/07/2010) Mark Robins will be turning his attention to former West Bromich Albion playmaker Robert Koren. It is no secret how ambitious Robins is and this has been a key factor in signing the 5 players recruited so far. Koren is thought to be taking a hefty paycut to compromise with Barnsley's budget but, he sees Barnsley as serious promotion contenders in the upcoming NPower Championship season.

Rumours have been circulating around Oakwell about Wolves' Republic of Ireland International Andy Keogh joing the South Yorkshire outfit. Keogh was shown around Oakwell 2 weeks ago and has, in principal agreed to join Mark Robins' side in the next 2448 hours. The fee is believed to be £800,000

Joe, I was just wondering where you heard this from? Cheers

I posted a couple of days ago about players not coming in from abroad due to them prefering other leagues.
Fabrizio micolli has come out and said blues offered double of what he was earning but didn't want to come to england.
Wolves have had multiple transfers scuppered because players don't want to come here. Wolves will be signing michael mancienne early to mid next week for 3.8 mill.

Regarding the assorted transfer rumours for liverpool football club, i would be very surprised is Gosling will be crossing the park. Sky Sports News is today reporting he demanded a guaranteed starting central midfield position (which is quite bizarre to be honest) if they wanted him to sign a new contract. If Everton are both unwilling and unable to guarantee that, I seriously doubt any of the top 7 teams can or will. {editor's note – that explains why the contract issue has come about, whoever is advising him needs a good slap to wake them up! He was getting regular football at Everton, he should have been grateful and worked to prove himself in my opinion.}

Man u to buy gosling, ninis, and a new striker.

 

07 Jul 2010 13:53:44
Ed I know Man U are pretty secretive until a deal has actually been struck but heard anything on Sneijder, Akinfeev, Ninis, Khedira, Suarez?
Alot of LFC stuff on here but Utd rumours are pretty scarce! Is this because Fergie is being stubborn again?? Do you agree we need a qualtiy signing or two cos i just don't see andrson, carrick, berba cutting it again this year. Stu {editor's note – I don't think Fergie is being stubborn, cautious is the word I would use. He doesn't have as much money to play around with as in the past, now his signings have to be right. Plus you don't exactly need an overhaul of the squad, just a couple of quality additions.}

Ed, Man Utd have shown interest in wesley sneijder, and morrati confirmed it but said he is not for saleso what do you think the most realistic option in attacking midfield is ?(man utd)

Gonne {editor's note – considering the bid for Ninis, I would have to say he is the most likely option. Though Ozil is coming to the end of his contract....}

But then that is not Ancelotti's way, I think it will be 2 more ins and neither big buys and possibly one big signing to shift shirts.}

I can confirm Taylor isn't going anywhere and i would'nt say Joe Cole is a big star name? Or is it just me?
I've heard Stephen Ireland could be on his way to Anfield in 9m move. Anyone else heard this??

Zak666

If this is true could you possibly explain why Steven Taylor is scheduled for talks/medical with Liverpool on Monday. You may scoff if you wish but I posted 2 weeks ago of Liverpool's interest in Bryan Ruiz of FC Twente (ed. can you please confirm this?) so I can claim to have a reasonably reliable source. Furthermore there are whispers that there has been an interest from Tinseltown regarding a bid for the club. I am personally a little sceptical as I doubt the club would risk American owners again, but I have heard that 2 well known Hollywood actors are a part of the consortium Samuel L. Jackson (who fell in love with the city when making 51st state, and Mike Myers (whose family originate from the city). Has anyone else heard anything similar?

07 Jul 2010 13:35:12
GIBSON AND DIOUF WOULD COST MORE THAN 14 MILLION MATE, SO BE SERIOUS, NOT TO MENTION DIOUF IS BETTER THAN COLE.

How would they? They are reserve team players who have achieved nothing significant in the game so far. They would therefore realistically be valued at around £34m each (maximum). Carlton Cole however is not worth £14m (more realistically around £8m). As Ferguson would be keen to give these two promising talents match experience I don't see why you're mocking this rumour. I'd say its a fairly lamentable deal well it would be if Carlton Cole was actually any good! Like Ferguson would ever be interested in paying good money for him!

Reserve players? Gibson played in the first team more than carrick last season plus both players are better than cole oh yeah even gibson at his young age has played and scored in the champions league has cole? Hmmm no!

So that makes Gibson better than MODRIC, ROBINHO, BELLAMY, LENNON, MILNER, TEVEZ etc
MANURE FOOL.

The rumour about Oguchi Onyewu to Celtic isn't true, he missed the whole of last season due to injury and has offered to play for free for the whole of the season to make up for him doing nothing last season.
I don't think Milan are daft enough to reject that offer and I don't think Onyewu is daft enough to leave Milan without making a single apperance, so he'll be staying at Milan this season.

Daily Mail have linked Man City with a £16.5million move for Lukas Podolski of FC Koln.

So I have been really surprised by all this furore surrounding his contract, I am not sure what has set it off and I am trying to find out. I was fully expecting him to sign the contract he had agreed to verbally, especially as UK law states that a verbal agreement is as binding as a written contract as far as I am aware.}

Dominic Adiyiah, the AC Milan striker and Ghana U20 World Cup Winner may join Sunderland on loan next season. Kwadwo Asamoah may also join a Premier League club from Udinese, with Arsenal touted as potential suitors. KevinPrince Boateng may also return to the Premier League, with Arsenal again said to be interested in the former Spurs midfielder. Manchester United are quietly wrapping up the signings of Sotiris Ninis from Panathanaikos, and Gary Cahill from Bolton. Nemanja Vidic is unlikely to stay at United, as the lure of being a Galactico may be too strong for him to resist, and his family is unhappy with life in the NorthWest. Manchester United are also likely to steal Karim Benzema away from Real Madrid, and also, it has been confirmed by my sources in South Africa that a top Manchester United official is currently in the country, speaking with Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder, who is unsure of his place in Rafael Benitez's plans for next season. Thomas Muller, Mesut Oezil, Sami Khedira etc will NOT join the Red Devils, however. Finally, it has been revealed that Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari, is being chased by Tottenham Hotspurs.

Serdar Tasci is looming as a possibility for Arsenal. At 10 million pounds he would be an excellent investment with his silky onthe ball skills, long passing and reading of the game. It is rumoured that Arsenal are already in negotiations to fend off interest from Tottenham and Juventus.

Koscielny will be confirmed shortly and is rumoured to be wearing to No. 6 jersey in an 8.5 million euro deal.

Should Barca come up with 60 million, Wenger has shortlisted Ozil (as well as Gourcuff and Montolivo) at around 20 million to replace Fabregas. Barca's finances should see Fabregas stay despite reports of secret meetings with Guardiola and Rosell

Providing, Tasci is signed, and Fabregas stays the only other arrival will most probably come in the form of Schwarzer.

 

07 Jul 2010 13:19:08
Does anyone think that koscielny will sign today
Arsenal usually announce signings on a friday
and when is Mr Wenger due back?
hopefully one more defender and then a DM to partner song

With regard to new investment into Liverpool FC, everyone on this website seems to be looking at groups in the UAE. I have fairly reliable contacts that it will be a group from Asia, but S E Asia. At present there are NDA's flying around so I cannot get too much information but I have a feeling that this will be moving pretty quickly.

Joe Cole has agreed terms with liverpool subject to a medical today! expect it to be released with in the next week and him unveiled as a Liverpool player, can't say who source is except for the fact he works for SSN and would get in trouble for releasing information, he said they are awaiting definite confirmation but is 90% sure its a done deal you head anything to back this up ED?

P.s personally think liverpool are making a mistake in Joe Cole will probz stop the transfer of Arda Turan happening which is a big loss for Liverpool as he is a quality player and would play for the badge rather than Cole who every one knows plays for the money. {editor's note – I don't have anything on this one at all, all I know is he had an offer, but I didn't expect him to take it. Might have just been wishful thinking on my part though.}

INS: konscielny £10m (including add ons)
vertongen £810m
van bommel £812m (depending on how bayern rate his world cup.
Babel £7m
Total £33m

Do you really think that the above is likely?! You talk about Wenger's determination not to waste money, and go on to claim that he will pay 812 mil for a 33 year old! Have you even thought about Wenger's well known transfer and contract policies on the over 30s?!

Similarly, if AW is determined not to waste money, why on earth would he pay 7m for Ryan Babel?!

And as the editor rightly says, you do not bid circa 15m for arguably the best keeper in the league if you have faith in your current custodian!

Did you by any chance come up with these "rumours" as you watched the world cup while playing Football Manager..?

Unsigned commented about alternate sources of revenue at 07 Jul 2010 12:09:14:

"Sharkey – YOU ARE RIGHT SHARKZ, THEY WOULD NEVER USE THEIR OIL FIELDS (IF THEY HAD OIL FIELDS) AS THE GOVERNMENT WILL TAKE HALF OF THEIR PROFITS. ALSO PLATINI AND BLATTER CAN CHANGE THE RULES AS THEY PLEASE, EVEN IF THEY USE HOTELS AND CASINO'S THE RULE WILL CHANGE, FROM WHAT I HAVE HEARD THE PARENT COMPANY'S CANNOT USE ANYTHING OTHER THAN SPORTS FRANCHISES AND BUSINESSES INVOLVING SPORT, THEREFORE THIS WILL RULE OUT TAXI FIRMS, CASINO'S AND HOTELS ETC."

Actually the rules explicitly allow the income from such non–football sources (under the auspices of other operating income) if they meet certain criteria: "Operations based at, or in close proximity to, a club's stadium and training facilities such as a hotel, restaurant, conference centre, business premises (for rental), health–care centre, other sports teams". So, as an example, Chelsea can include revenue from the two hotels on site at Stamford Bridge.

"ONE OTHER THING I WOULD LIKE TO SAY IS THE GLAZERS CANNOT USE ANY OF THE UNITED REVENUE TO HELP OUT TAMPA BAY BUCS AND VICE VERSA SO HOW COULD BARCELONA AND CHELSEA BENEFIT FROM BUYING A MLS FRANCHISE?"

Another area allowed by the regulations is "Operations clearly using the name/brand of a club as part of their operations" and this ties in with the point made by the Editor. If the part ownership (as the US has complex laws surrounding foreign ownership) of an MLS can be shown to be an expansion of the brand of a club it falls within the provisions of allowable expenses. Equally, the use of oilfields or other unrelated business income would be excluded.

The whole fairness issue surrounds a calculation based on clubs breaking even using only certain information from their accounts (calculated as Income less Expenses). I have taken the following lists from the Uefa Financial Fair Play document (91 pages and tedious):

Income is defined as the sum of:
(a) Revenue – Gate receipts
(b) Revenue – Sponsorship and advertising
(c) Revenue – Broadcasting rights
(d) Revenue – Commercial activities
(e) Revenue – Other operating income
(f) Profit on disposal of player registrations (or income from disposal of player registrations)
(g) Excess proceeds on disposal of tangible fixed assets
(h) Finance income
Less
(i) Non–monetary credits
(j) Income transaction(s) with related party(ies) above fair value
(k) Income from non–football operations not related to the club

Expenses are defined as the sum of:
(1) Expenses – Cost of sales/materials
(2) Expenses – Employee benefits expenses
(3) Expenses – Other operating expenses
(4) Amortisation/impairment of player registrations and loss on disposal of player registrations (or costs of acquiring player registrations)
(5) Finance costs and dividends
Plus
(6) Expense transaction(s) with related party(ies) below fair value
Less
(7) Expenditure on youth development activities
(8) Expenditure on community development activities
(9) Non–monetary debits/charges
(10) Finance costs directly attributable to the construction of tangible fixed assets
(11) Expenses of non–football operations not related to the club.

When I have a couple of hours to spare I will try and add some plain English explanations and provide some examples in each category.

Sharkey.

INTER CONFIRM UNITED INTEREST

Inter president Massimo Moratti has revealed that Manchester United are interested in taking Netherlands World Cup star Wesley Sneijder to Old Trafford.

A report from Dutcch newspaper De Telegraaf had claimed that the Serie A outfit were ready to offer the midfielder a new contract, extending his current deal, which runs until 2013, by two years.

However, it would seem that United may have other plans for the playmaker, although Moratti insisted that he had not been 'tempted' by the English club's offer just yet.

"The interest from Manchester United in Sneijder is real, but I didn't look into it in an attempt not to fall into temptation, " Moratti told Sky Sport Italia, adding: "Offers for [Mario] Balotelli and Maicon have been too low."

On the question of Balotelli, Moratti also confirmed that the player had not requested to leave the club, despite the rumours claiming that both United and neighbours Manchester City were prepared to tussle for the controversial forward.

"It seems like an advertising campaign to me. In any case Balotelli has not come to me to ask to be sold, " he added.

"I don't understand why a problem has to be created."

Ed, is there any further developments on Milner to Man City? As a Villa fan, if Man City are stupid enough to pay £25£30m for him, the quicker he goes the better. Would happily take Hart, Ireland + cash for him. I've also heard that Arteta is a very strong possiblity. Not happy that your tipping Robbie Keane to come though, would prefer a bid for Falcao {editor's note – Keane is just my personal feeling rather than being based on good sources mate, you never know you might avoid him. As for Milner, it seems to have stalled, City know the price they have to pay but they are trying to show a little more restraint now, especially with them having no real rivals to sign him currently.}

There is a regular reoccurrance of some statement that Torres won't be able to play in the EPL long term because of the knee injuries / strain. Since being at LFC, out of the last 3 bad injuries Torres has had, 2 of them were gained on international duty, much to Rafa's frustration
Hopefully, with all the St he's getting this world cup, he makes a decision to retire from international football and concentrate on LFC. There is also no way he's going to another EPL team, it just wouldn't make sense and as far as I know, only Real could possibly afford him on the continent, (wage and Transfer fee), and he would NEVER join them. One transfer I think may come to fruition is Pirlo to Chelsea, Milan are more than skint and Carlo loves the player.
LFC to sign a Left Back, Left Winger and a forward as a priority and Hodgson to assess his squad until Christmas and then see what is needed from there.

carlton cole news rubbish, utd have never had more than a quick glance.
gibson is highly thought of at OT and would not be sold.
diouf people a very impressed with his progress so again will not be sold.

like i said the sanchez deal has gone i think due to the price hike by udinese so they can keep him for another year.
ninis a done deal i think.
waitng on world cup ending until finalisation of attacking midfielder.(so sneider or ozil but morre likely ozil imo)
benzema deal progressing.

Steven Gerrard will make up his mind about leaving Liverpool after his holiday. Roy spoke to him and outlined his plans and also the situation with potential new owners and advised Steven not to make any decision on his future after the fiasco of South Africa.
Steven is (quite rightly IMHO) upset at the poor showing of the England team but Roy (showing great man management skills) has told him not to base any decision on how he feels right now.
Steven has been told about potential transfer targets was "delighted" with them.
Fernando Torres has had a phone conversation with Roy, which went very well according to my "insider" so I would hope that he see's sense and stays put for another year at least.
No news on Joe Cole but I agree with Editor, that his best days are behind him.
Latest on ownership is actually as Mr Broughton said. T&G have NO PART of any deal as they have willingly stepped back, so stories of £600800 million price are way off. My source expects a deal to be done, but perhaps not in time for this transfer window.
That is all for now.

LFC TAKEOVER LATEST

Broughton suggested Liverpool will be sold by the end of the summer transfer window and indicated that serious bids are expected in the coming weeks. There are Interested parties who could potentially be the right owners for Liverpool. If the sale can be concluded before the end of the transfer window there could be additional funds made available for Roy Hodgson. There is no Indication as to who the Interested parties are and therefore any rumours about an arab takeover having been already completed are wide of the mark. Whatever the situation Liverpool will be in the hands of New Owners in 34 weeks.

A cracking signing for Hull, they have been crying out for a decent striker.

Editor, celtic assistant manager johan mjalby has said that celtic still want Robbie Keane but only if it is a loan deal, will spurs allow him to come to celtic on loan again or do they want to sell him for cash permenantly? {editor's note – if I am right loan moves can be made after the transfer window closes, if that is the case I would guess they will try and sell him in the window and if it falls through loan him out.}

Dear Ed,

Are you certain that Aquilani will be at LFC next season? Iv heard some horrible rumours of him already being offloaded, although i think he will shine next season.

Plus, thinkin of getting on the back of the new away shirt!

Dewy {editor's note – I can't be absolutely certain of any player being at the club to be honest, Roy has yet to make his final decision on the players he wants to offload. When he does there will be a clearer idea of who is going.}

Arsenal..
Koscienly has agreed a deal for £7m + addons. He plays on the same side as Vermaelen and plays just like him, so his not gna be a starter.

Steven Taylor (£5m) plays on the right side of CB and will partner Vermaelen.

Sol Campbell has been convinced by Wenger to sign another Contract. He was thinking about going to Celtic but they won't do well in Europe so his decided to stay. He will also get quite abit of game time as he will be cover for Taylor. and Koscienly will be cover for Vermaelen and Djourou will be cover for Both of them.

Vanderwiel (£8m) will sign. Wenger wants him to be the 1st choice RB. Sagna and Eboue don't need to leave because Eboue can play in MF and RW, so noone needs to leave.

A DM will not be signed because wenger Trusts Diaby, Denilson and Eastmond.

Joe Cole will sign and play in MF with Song and Fabregas.

Just to make sure you people know. KOSCIENLY WILL NOT BE 1ST CHOICE CB.

I live about 30 mins from pompey and the gym i use is also by used by a member of the backroom staff of portsmouth football club. Now this guy is a top fella and is always approachable and asks how im doing etc etc so i have no reason whatsoever to doubt what he has to say regarding the club. Now what he told me on the weekend was that the club is a lot mkore settled than it was last season and its a nicer place to work. He told me that hes taking the youth team on a tour of america and canada next week. I asked him about potential moves within the club regarding players. He said that the club expect David James to sign a contract this week for 2years but he said that belhajd(sorry about the spelling) is leaving for lazio and its pretty much a done deal..i don't support pompey so have no interest in posting false rumours but i do wish them well and hope they get back into the premiership soon. If i do hear of anything else i will post it up

"I also had the fortune of speaking to Phil Neville at one of the training sessions and he tells me categorically that Everton will sign a big name player from the World Cup. I said Luis Suarez to him and he smiled at me said, "you been speaking to the Gaffer?"."

Do you really expect ANYONE to beleive this?! Do you really?! You really tricked him into lettin THAT one go didn't you?! Doughnut!

Utd will sign Benzema + Sneijder (although i would prefer Schweinsteiger)

Utd DO have money. They have over £100mil liquid cash in the bank.. So will people stop talking nonsense!

To the editor (I believe your name is Ed)
the keeper section was more a way of attempting to convince other people that almunia was underrated. And I think he only bid for reina because he is top class and anyone would be happy to have a keeper of his ability. I seem to remember his bid was way under what Liverpool would have considered but with the schwarzer thing you have a good point. I was just saying that he will trust almunia because he won't sign schwarzer ( in my opinon he won't, he's already failed in one bid and fulham may ask for too much). But anyway good catch and I suppose it should say, if wenger fails in his efforts to sign schwarzer he will be content with almunia for a short term.
What do you think of the rest of the rumours?
Thanks
robin fabregas {editor's note – I just think it will be more a case of being stuck with Almunia than being content with him. I really don't think Wenger believes he is up to the task, otherwise he would have just stuck with him rather than moving for other keepers. As for the rest, they seemed ok to me, all possible at least.}

Leeds complete signing of Preston North End defender Neill Collins for a undisclosed fee on a threeyear contract
Source: www.leedsunited.com

 

07 Jul 2010 12:09:07
Leeds team for new season with the glaring gaps that need to be filled asap

Schmeicel/Higgs
Connelly/Crowe
Bessone/Parker/Hughes
Kisnorbo (when fit)/ Bromby/???
????/Naylor
???/Kilkenny
Howson/????
Snodgrass/????
Gradel/Johnson/White
Beccio/Paynter
????/Grella/Somma

Based on this this we are seriously lacking any midfield punch or depth. We are also looking old, slow, injured and lacking depth at centre back. If Snods form slips (and it does quite often) then we have nobody to push him for his place and finally we have no fast, goal scoring frontman to work off our target men.
I still think we should be good enough to avoid having a relegation fight but I would like to see us pushing for the top half of the table and with the squad as it stands now won't be able to do this.

I am not convinced about any of our signings so far (except Kasper) and can't say I am thrilled by some of the names being banded about.
If the likes of Hooper, Sam, Collins, Russell etc were that good then surely their teams would not want them to leave.


I personally would prefer a couple of youngish upper coming players that are not quite ready to break into the 1 st team of premiership clubs coming to us e.g Spearing, Watt, EmanuelThomas, Delph (he should never have left), Simpson, Mancienne, Cork, Delfuenso etc etc etc.

These players are desperate to show they have talent and coming to a team like Leeds will definitely be a good move.

Now I am sure all you LUFC haters will pipe up straight away and harp on about why would blah blah come to your s!t club. Well the reason is because Leeds are still a global football team. We have fans worldwide and other than the big boys in the premiership there are probably few other teams that have our support base and that is enough to entice players like that to us. Sanchez Watt came to us whilst we were in League 1 don't forget. Its just whether SG wants to rely on youth or experience!

 

07 Jul 2010 12:09:19
My sources tell me that Liverpool will go for the services of Dan Gosling, Jones and Dorrans. We will also see a cheeky bid for Dempsey from Liverpool if they have the cash. Manchester United could go for Sneijder and a new striker only if Carrick and Berbatov have poor preseasons. Carlo Ancelotti has decided to make Pato top priority depending on how much he is worth.
Unknown.

 

07 Jul 2010 11:42:44
From the Liverpool Echo today:

'DAN GOSLING is ready to leave Everton for nothing after he dragged the club to a Premier League inquiry to prove he is a free agent.

The £4mrated midfielder wants to quit Goodison Park after delaying new contract talks, and is now believed to be considering a move to newlypromoted Newcastle United.

Representatives for the England Under21 star claimed Everton failed to offer him an extension to his initial deal in writing, meaning they could expose a legal loophole.'

Looks like he is leaving. Bitter blow {editor's note – I don't understand what happened here, just before his cruciate injury he was saying about how happy he was at Everton. What changed?}

Mark Van Bommel is an Arsenal target? Did you watch Holland play last night and then just make this up? He's 33 (which is when you get a carriage clock and a bag of Werthers Originals at The Emirates!). Given that Campbell and Gallas have been released because they were the wrong side of 30, do you really think that Wenger would pay money for Van Bommel? Yes money because he's contracted with Bayern Munchen (you know, the European Cup finalists), where incidentally he is also the captain! So, again do you really think 33yr old Mark Van Bommel will leave the Bundesliga Champions to warm the bench in England? Lame rumour at best. What else you got? Pierre Van Hooijdonk signing for Chelsea?

 

07 Jul 2010 11:49:15

Hi ed do you have any info in regards to Steven Taylor's proposed transfer to Liverpool? I was told he hasn't had a medical and is in talks with Newcastle about a new 4 year deal although an enquiry was made.
All my sources are telling me that Dan Gosling is now a free agent, can't really see him signing for Newcastle although there is currently an agent in Newcastle finalising a transfer of a player from the Manchester/Liverpool area, but that could be anyone. {editor's note – I don't believe there to be anything in the Taylor rumours to be honest, just an agent trying to get his player a better contract. All that has happened with Gosling is that his contract offer was verbal instead of in writing, I fully expect him to sign a new contract with Everton in the near future.}

"Also Bournemouth have accepted an offer from Charlton for Brett Pitman. The offer consists of £300,000 (which could raise to £500,000) plus Izale McLeod. However they are unwilling to let the transfer to go ahead, until they find a shortterm replacement for Pitman, while McLeod recovers from surgery." Why would Bournemouth accept that when they turned down £400,000 from peterbrough and have already said that no player is for sale.

 

07 Jul 2010 11:35:55
No source here, just personal opinion. Jose Mourinho already stated that he will not be hasty in selling his star assets who underperformed last season at Real Madrid. He mentioned that all players will be given a fresh chance to prove themselves. This would seem to rule out any chance of Karim Benzema moving to Man United. He signed a 6year contract last year, and is only 22 years of age. Jose is a clever guy and is not going to sell someone like Benzema in my opinion.

"Swindon to also confirm the signing of Tony Capaldi from Cardiff City on a free, whilst Casper Ankergren is moving to Swansea on a free therefore no new goalkeeper for Swindon (who had been linked with Casper) unless we can agree a deal with Man City for a loan deal for Stuart Taylor or sign Andy Marshall on a free from Aston Villa"

Stuart Taylor had a one year contract at City and its not been renewed as Joe Hart is back now so Taylor is a free agent.

To all these idiots that say Leeds have no money, I would suggest you look back to the Fabian Delph deal, we have spent next to nothing of that fee and we didn't because we were waiting to see if we got into the Championship.
Reason we are signing loads of free agents is because the big money will go on a proven Championship Striker and a Midfielder. What is the point on spending money on theother positions when we can bring in quality for free.
Kasper Schmicehel is a prime example, wanted by other championship teams and some smaller premiership teams, but chose Leeds, as we are still a BIG FISH in the Football World.
People have short memories, all these rubbish teams in the Championship (bar Notts Forest) don't really have anywhere near the History Leeds have.
Expect two big signings before the Weekend. Stirker and a Midfielder.

ARSENAL
The nonsense continues. Of course Wenger is looking to purchase a new keeper. Almunia suffered a poor season, which culminated in a mysterious couple of convenient injuries, allowing the equally inept Fabianski to take over. Defensively, we have Vermaelen & Djourou, probably Koscielny & either Campbell or a new signing. In midfield a top quality replacement for Fabregas, if he is sold. Up front we have signed Chamakh, so I don't expect any further signings. On the Arsenal site Wenger stated that he wanted to make 2 or 3 signings this summer. I beleive, a keeper, a centre back & a forward. I only see this being extended if Campbell or Fabregas depart.

GIBSON AND DIOUF WOULD COST MORE THAN 14 MILLION MATE, SO BE SERIOUS, NOT TO MENTION DIOUF IS BETTER THAN COLE.

How would they? They are reserve team players who have achieved nothing significant in the game so far. They would therefore realistically be valued at around £34m each (maximum). Carlton Cole however is not worth £14m (more realistically around £8m). As Ferguson would be keen to give these two promising talents match experience I don't see why you're mocking this rumour. I'd say its a fairly lamentable deal well it would be if Carlton Cole was actually any good! Like Ferguson would ever be interested in paying good money for him!

NEITHER OF THESE PLAYERS ARE RESERVE PLAYERS, THEY ARE BOTH IN UNITED'S FIRST TEAM SQUAD, IF TOSIC WAS SOLD FOR 8M AND GIBSON IS BETTER AND YOUNGER AND HOMEGROWN IS VALUE WOULD AT LEAST EQUAL HIS AT THE VERY WORST. DIOUF IS 22, HE SCORED ON HIS UNITED DEBUT AND IS HIGHLY RATED BY FERGUSON, HE WOULD EASILY CARRY A 6M FEE, AFTER ALL HULL OFFERED 7M FOR FRAZIER CAMPBELL AND HE IS MUCH BETTER THAN HIM.

I ASSUMED THE PREVIOUS POSTER MEANT WHUFC WOULD GET THESE TWO ON PERMANENT DEALS NOT LOAN DEALS. THE REALITY IS BECAUSE THEY ARE UNITED PLAYERS THEY WILL GO FOR HIGHER FEES ANYWAY.

WOULD YOU AGREE WITH THAT ED? {editor's note – there is always a premium on United players, those two will certainly not go cheap, Diouf is a forward which always increases the price and Gibson scored a couple of crackers.}

People stop thinking your club is going to sign every player in the world!

Chelsea: I can see schweinsteiger & sergio aurgero signing but aurgero only if anelka retires, schweinsteiger will be the replacement for ballack and cole.

Man utd: I can also see manchester united signing either Ozil or sneijder and signing benzema, suarez or fabiano but not all of them maybe 2 or 3, i can also see the lights of carrick, berbatov and anderson leaving.

Arsenal: if fabregas doesn't leave you might get joe cole or he might go to spurs but you will proberly not sign anyone if fabregas stays.

Liverpool: I can see you signing a striker, midfielder, defender but the won't be world class and torres may leave which gives you more money for players.

ANELKA HAS JUST SIGNED A NEW CONTRACT SO WHY WOULD HE RETIRE?

So Stephen Ireland and Nedum Onuoha are going to leave Man City to come and keep Villa's bench warm? Dream on.And after Milners World Cup I think his price will be going down from City's initial £20m bid not up! Irelands a better player than Milner.

So here's my very STRONG rumour.

The takeover at Liverpool isn't going to happen anytime soon, in fact, it probably never will because the chance are it never really existed.

For the past 2 years I've heard people spouting "DIC this", "Rich Arab" that. Let's get real here Liverpool fans have been claiming this type of nonsense for so long now that to be frank, it's very boring.

In conslusion, Liverpool will NOT be taken over.

Also, word on the street is that Sol Campbell WILL be at Arsenal next season. A low basic topped up by a substantial 'pay as you play' type bonus.

That is all.

Just because Davie Moyes said that he has sympathy for Luis Suarez, doesn't mean Everton are going to sign him:
"During a press conference in Sydney, Moyes was asked whether he would expect his players to do the same thing if in similar circumstances.
"Yes, " he replied. "If there's a chance (of staying in the game) by handballing it he knows he is going to get sent off but there is a second chance."
Everton will get 4mil from the Gosling saga and this will go straight to the Ben Arfa 8mil deal or a cheaper alternative Sessegnon 6mil. The sale of Yobo to West Ham will fund a deal for highly rated Jan Vertonghen of Ajax to join up with Fellaini. The sale of Pienaar will fund a deal to sign Landon Donovan for 9 mil.
You head it first here.

To all the people saying ledley is wasting celtics time

If anything hes wasting his own time, hes the 1 that has flew to glasgow for talks and he is also the 1 looking at schools and houses in glasgow, very much doubt that lennon would babysit him while he does that. Also to my knowledge i have never heard any comment what so ever from ledley since celtic put their cards on the table. I honestly think the people stating that ledley won't come are just people not believing that class want to come to the spl. Its not as good as it once was but there is still quality players at every club

As a lifelong LFC fan, I'm amused that since Roy took over, and he made the 'homegrown' comment The wonderful (lazy) journo's have so far linked us with:

Stephen Ireland / Joe Cole / Curtis Davies / Gary Cahill / Phil Jones / Carlton Cole / James Milner / Ashley Young / Danny Murphy / Steven Taylor / Micah Richards / Nedum Onuoha & Wayne Bridge.

I don't know about your contacts and sources but personally I don't think any of these will arrive at Anfield! I'd love your opinion?

neilr007 {editor's note – I don't believe that any of those players will be playing for Liverpool next season. They are just paper talk in the main, in the main I am glad of that, most of those players are not good enough in my opinion.}

It has been reported in various newspapers today that Aston Villa are keen on signing Scott Parker from West Ham. David Sullivan said he would not be sold at what ever offer was thrown at them but that is starting to look like a dying statement.

Parker would cost in the region of £10 £12 Million but due to West Ham chasing Luke Young and Steve Sidwell maybe the price could be significantly dropped. What this also mean is that Milner would definately de gone and Parker would fill in his role.

Regarding other transfers it is believed on SSN that an £8.5 Million bid has been accepted for Robbie Keane from Spurs. This would explain why Keane was at Bodymore heath yesterday as he come out and said if he was to move he would fancy a move to Villa.

At the end of the day its all speculation around the Parker deal but the Robbie Keane deal is looking and almost certain done deal. Editor do you think any of these will be playin in a villa shirt next season ??

PsX Con {editor's note – I do think Parker and Keane are very possible, despite what the porn barons might say. They are not exactly trustworthy people at the best of times!}

Hi guys. Just wanna say i am looking forward to the new season under Steve Coppell. I know Alan Walsh quite well. And he said categorically that Paul Hartley has 1 year left on his contract at Ashton Gate. Steve Coppell has said to Walshie and Walshie said to me that Harts feature in SC'S future plans next season. So any Hearts, Aberdeen fans who wants to grab him, well they got NO chance. And also I read in the Daily Star today that SC is lining up a £2m bid for unsettled Stoke striker, Dave Kitson? Ed I was wondering if there is any truth about it in the Stoke area? {editor's note nothing I have heard has mentioned it, doesn't mean it is not happening, I don't actually know who represents him, can anyone tell me who Kitson's agent is? Sorry, he is one of those players that seems to sit under the radar until the transfer window.}

ED He doesn't seem to have an agent which would fit well with his low profile in the transfer windows and his own personality. {editor's note – that would explain a thing or two, it is much easier to find things out when a player has an agent. Agents have staff that talk to other agencies etc. Plus agents like to leak things when they want to move their client on to another club or get him a new contract, it generates interest.}

Not too much activity expected at Ibrox, either in or out.
Heard from a very trustworthy source though that Smith's main targets are Chris Brunt, David Healy and the shock one is Derek Riordan who the manager see's as perfect for a left mid or striker role.
Transfer fees and wages involved for these three very much within the £5m budget + the monnies freed up from the players who have already left.
Jose Goncalves will ONLY be signed if Bougherra leaves as cover for left and centre back.

"ED–is the Ben Afra deal still on? {editor's note – as far as I know it is, I really don't know what the hold up is. One of the first things I do each morning is check to see if it has been announced, I am beginning to wonder if it will ever happen.}"

The latest (ten days ago) news I have on Ben Arfa is that Marseille would be pleased to keep him (Deschamps spoke to a journalist (I don't recall who) about the player and said that the matter is up to Ben Arfa to resolve himself – the keys are in his hands, apparently).

Ben Arfa had previously said that PSG would be his preferred destination. My understanding is that both Aston Villa and Birmingham City had made general enquiries about the player and that Bordeaux may provide another option. Whether or not Everton have renewed last years interest or not is certainly not clear to me. I am sure that they have not formally approached Marseille recently, but I do know that his agent gave a very vague statement about the player.

If PSG are interested and make an acceptable offer, then I have no doubts that Ben Arfa would move to Paris.

Sharkey.

ED With regard to Dan Gosling i believe he is at Finch Farm at present every day as he has an injury which will keep him out till Christmas

 

07 Jul 2010 10:21:34
Preston north end to sign robert koren !! he has been at the club today and has agreed a contract and terms great signing for preston he will undergo a medical soon

 

07 Jul 2010 10:23:34
Liverpool will spend money this transfer window though. Bryan Ruiz of Twente and Jeremy Toulalan are the big names that Hodgson is looking at. Ruiz will cost £12.5m and Toulalan will command a fee of £16.5m. Taye Taiwo will also snub Atletico Madrid for Liverpool, completing a move for £8m. Steven Taylor is having a medical at Liverpool on Thursday, after agreeing his wages and transfer fee with Newcastle. He will cost £6m.

Just to recap
Klose free
Ledley free
Gosling free
Cole free
Jovanovic free
Ruiz £12.5m
Toulalan £16.5m
Taylor £6m
Taiwo £8m

_
Just to recap, Taylor will sign a new deal at Newcastle, And for some unknown reason its not registering that you have 15m to spend, Most of the players are well out of your price range, god people say were deluded..

 

07 Jul 2010 10:27:12
fox

Dan Gosling will not be leaving Everton, would'nt bother me if he did but i was told he'll sign a new deal next week.

To other evertonians explained story with Ben Arfa and Donovan and where the money is coming from already.

And to the guy who says we'll sign Suarez its not going to happen my friend i wish!! If what you say is true i think its Cordoza but my info say that Benfica wer askin for too much.

Arsenal keeper situation.

Arsene wenger has trust in almunia for a season or 2 more until wenger feels he can rely on young szczenzhy and mannone to fight for a first team place. Another more reliable option for wenger would be to sign schwarzer as a short term fix costing him £3.5m. however wenger is keen not to waste any money on keepers (as he is looking to the future and trying to build a stronger financial position for the club, as they have yet to pay back lots of debt for the emirates stadium). this is why he will stick with almunia who is in my opinion way underrated.

Defense.

Arsene wenger will secure the signing of laurent konscielny for £8.5m plus add ons in the next week. He will try to keep to his promise to sign a defender before the end of the world cup. He will also look to sign another cb perhaps vertonghen battle with konscielny for a starting 11 spot. Djourou will also be in the running for a starter depending on pre season performences.
Wenger will take this opportunity to allow his youngster to provide back up if arsenal have another terrible season on the injury front.

Midfield.

This is one area of the pitch wenger does not feel he needs to strengthen. With Ramsey, wilshire, Lansbury and eastmond as covers, wenger will perhaps only look to secure one expierienced central midfielder. Van bommel is being considered to fight for a spot with song. Bayern might be willing to let go off their expirienced captain as he ages. He would be eager to link up with van persie and help arsenal achieve sucess.

Foward

With the signing of chamackh the attacking front is now well covered. However, If Eduardo leaves wenger may look to sign babel for the cheap ( Birmingham were interested in him before but now have other interests and roy doesn't rate him) as he does not want to be stuck in the same position as last year, playing midfielders upfront.

To summarise:

INS: konscielny £10m (including add ons)
vertongen £810m
van bommel £812m (depending on how bayern rate his world cup.
Babel £7m
Total £33m

OUTS: senderos free (done)
gallas free
silvestre free
Campbell free
Rosicky £8m
denilson £6m
fablianski £1
eduardo £8m
simpson £2m
total £24.000001m

it is estimated that wenger has a 45m transfer kitty but this season will only use 9m and the rest will go toward repaying debt. Wenger feels next season is very important but after next season he will always try and break even in the transfers front, feeling his young squad will be mature enough to sucres without huge additions to the squad.

Squad:

Gk: almunia, mannone, szczenzsy, mcdermott
Rb: sanga, vertognen, eastmond
cb: vermaelen, vertognen, konscielny, djourou, song
lb: clichy, Gibbs, traore
rcm: nasri, Eboue, Diaby, ramsey
cdm: van bommel, song, eastmond
lcm: fabregas, diaby, wilshire
rw: van persie, walcott, bendtner
st: chamackh, van persie, bendtner
lw: arshavin, babel, vela

thank you for your time,
Robin fabregas

Chamackh free (done)
babel {editor's note – if Wenger has such faith in Almunia, why has he made bids for Reina and Schwarzer? He is definitely looking to replace him if he can.}

Rangers have spoken with davie moyes to see the possability of signing vaugan on loan.walter and davie will meet in pre season in Australia to discuss it further.

To the people who keep saying that Paul Hartley is moving cuz they seen him at the airport i will ley you know that he regulary goes back up to scotland as his family is up there and he did it throughout last season even if he only has a couple dayd off also the chaiman and manager has come out and saiid we have had no bids for any1 so you can stop those stupid nicky maynard rumours about necastle and stop saying paul is moving for free he is still under contract not out of it i thought i would clear this up because it is getting on my nerves

I'm an arsenal fan, but i'll come on to them later. First, the talk of Liverpool making huge money signings seems a little ridiculous to me as just because they have a new (and an excellent) manager this certainly does not mean they have found a new pot of money. As far as i am aware they are still a club in turmoil with 2 crazy owners who haven't any cash that can be spent on players. Furthermore big money signings do not generally occur in the midst of handovers. On Arsenal, I believe the only reason we will sign a new attacking player is if Fabregas leaves, this by the way, i think is unlikely as neither club is in a hurry to buy and i think he will leave next year when xavi starts to come to the end of his carrer. Wenger has never once talked of attacking players, gonly of new defensive players this window. A GK, 2 CB's, and a new RB if sagna leaves.

 

07 Jul 2010 10:14:10
David Sullivan has arranged a meeting with Dan Goslings agent for later this week, West Ham would love to add Gosling to the squad, ideal for the hammers as there is no fee payable now.

Piquione is expected to sign for West Ham before the end of the week,

West Ham have ended there interest in Nigerian keeper, as they plan to stick by Rob Green this season.

West Ham are keen to offload Julian Faubert, Jon Spector, Herita Illunga and Kieran Dyer but no offers for these players so far.

Upson is deciding if he wants to join sunderland after they made a 7 million pound offer,

GIBSON AND DIOUF WOULD COST MORE THAN 14 MILLION MATE, SO BE SERIOUS, NOT TO MENTION DIOUF IS BETTER THAN COLE.

How would they? They are reserve team players who have achieved nothing significant in the game so far. They would therefore realistically be valued at around £34m each (maximum). Carlton Cole however is not worth £14m (more realistically around £8m). As Ferguson would be keen to give these two promising talents match experience I don't see why you're mocking this rumour. I'd say its a fairly lamentable deal well it would be if Carlton Cole was actually any good! Like Ferguson would ever be interested in paying good money for him!

Reserve players? Gibson played in the first team more than carrick last season plus both players are better than cole oh yeah even gibson at his young age has played and scored in the champions league has cole? Hmmm no!

Blackpool have made an offer to released Newcastle United midfielder Nicky Butt.
Ian Holloway wants to add topflight experience to his squad and Butt, who was released by Newcastle following their own promotion, fits the bill.
Tottenham winger David Bentley is a shock target for Blackpool.
Holloway has handed his chairman Karl Oyston a 16player hitlist of targets to keep Blackpool in the Premier League.
Ollie has identified the likes of Burnley's Chris Eagles, Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck and Spurs' David Bentley as potential loan stars

The Hooper to Leeds stuff on here is embarrassing.
There is NO WAY Leeds will spend 2.5m on one single players. Ken Bates has never done that and never will
im not even sure its Leeds supporter putting on here

real rumours in
Neill Collins, 300k from Preston. today
Sam Lloyd, Out of contract. by Saturday
Darel Russell, Out of contract. by Saturday
expect a striker to arrive but for no more then 700k
Grayson is looking at Simeon Jackson, Leigh Griffins and Adam Le Fondre

Also a loan move for a centre back, to cover for Kisnorbo

Leeds will not spend more then a million pound this summer on transfer fees

 

07 Jul 2010 09:48:22
Editor who is the realistic targets for leeds and don't say hooper lol. {editor's note – I don't think Hooper is in the slightest bit realistic, Grayson is not going to spend his entire transfer budget on one player. He is busy chasing up free agents, the signing on fees eat into his budget and don't give him the spare cash left over for transfer fees. Febian Brandy is being considered, he has been asked whether he would be willing to join for a trial period. James Cronesberry is another one that has been offered a trial. Teixeira was also considered, but I don't know if he is still an option. Marlon Harewood was contacted, but he was deemed too expensive, his wage demands were high. Glen Little is another one that is being looked at, for his experience as much as anything. Anderson is also a possible, not the United one but the one from Barnsley, Anderson de Silva. Vas Te of Bolton is also under consideration. Those are the ones I have been told, along with a few foreign frees too. I am sure there are more, most managers have huge lists of players at the start of each season.}

Obviously the Derby Fans are bored this morning and have nothing better to do! grow up! Doughty is not selling and as last year we are keeping our transfers close to our chest! expect maybe one of Pratley or Whittingham, I doubt Shorey will come but I am expecting a couple of young players from our European scouts including 1 or 2 left backs as Billy is letting our only left back Julian Bennett out on loan to gain his fitness.

Billy davies has stated that hes going to let j.bennett go on a season long loan not sure where to. kelvin wilson may be off to celtic hope not he was one of forests best players last season.tyson mite be going to reading and cohan to bolton although this may bring in some good transfer money i feel its ripping apart one of the best forest teams ive seen in recent years. if davies is prepared to let bennett go out on loan and sell perch then surley they must have somebody lined up for our left back position.

perch £1m newcastle
tyson £1m reading
wilson £34m celtic
cohan £45m bolton

i don't think any of the usual suspects are done deals at all.

shorey has said hes waiting for a premiership club which is fair enough hes still a prem class player.
pratley could well wait until festa sort there manager out and go there.
and whittingham has had one good season id rather keep cohan. so who are forest gonna sign. ihavent got a clue maybe rinderoy who ive never heard of if forest are gonna get £10m + from sales they need to bring in better players than we sell any body got any idea who?

Desperate times for the reds if they are trying to talk up Gosling a fringe player who scored a goal in the derby ! Won't get a place in front of Peanuts, Fella, Arteta, Billy, Jack or Tiny Tim, should get in front of Osman though.

Spoke last night to a press photographer with strong contacts in merseyside and works the 2 big clubs who said Gerrard has been given until the end of the month to decide. Big fear for Gerrard is the release of the info and apparently the advice is to get out of the way till it dies down (2 years). Also said no one interested in Masch because the price is too high and nobody (apart from City), has got the sort of money they are asking.

a poor no trophy in 15 years deluded blue
nothing wrong in the gerard camp never has been ( unlike rodwells )
the senior players have all been briefed on the ownership details and are aware very big things about to happen with some marquee signings in august

Roy wants to prove his intentions for the coming season to Torres and Gerrard and also the fans. He will move quickly and expect to see at least three new signings by the end of next week.
These will be

Jovanovic Free
Turan 12m (rumours that Dalglish is out in Istanbul finalising the deal)
Joe Cole Free, he will opt for Liverpool because of the potential the club will have once the take over is done.

Players that will leave this summer are.

Yossi (already gone) 5.6m
Mascherano will go to either Real Madrid or Inter 25m
Lucas 8m Inter
Riera CSKA (part exchange)
Ngog 3m
Caverelli 3.5 m

plus the trumourd 15m =60.1m

Promoted to first team Will be
Nemeth, Pacheco, Kelly, Darby, Gaulcias(reina's new number 2)

See also bids for.

The surprise signing will be the return of Xabi Alonso, this will be the key signing and will keep Gerrard and Torres at Liverpool.
He will either be straight swap with Mascherano or 25m.

Other targets are.

Ledley
Taylor (hope we don't bag this one)
Young (doubt MON will do business with us)

Expect when Liverpool are bought out expect one marquee signing as a goodwill gesture to the fans this will be.

Aguero 35m

 

07 Jul 2010 08:45:17
A few questions.

1 how much do people think Dzeko is actually worth? I've seen him play a maximum of 5 times, but i've never been impressed 35 million seemed ridiculous. So, people with better knowledge is he worth it?

2 how much is Wayne Bridge worth? I'd hate to pay anything over 3 million for him, even before considering his ludicrous wages.

3 Ashley Young is not worth anything near 25 million! Maybe half that he's achieved nothing and has no Champions League experience! Milner's good, but up to 18 million maybe.

 

07 Jul 2010 08:47:04
Ed,
Whats the deal with Gosling? read in the paper that he has left Everton because of this "verbal contract" stuff but I thought he had gone to OZ with the rest of the squad for preseason? do you know anything? be a shame to lose him {editor's note – he is in Australia as far as I know, and a friend of mine who knows him fairly well says that he is very happy at Everton. Until I hear otherwise I am going to assume that it is just paper talk about him leaving.}

Walsall Rumours.

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

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

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

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

Chelsea Team for next season:

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

In my opinion i think Aguero would be a better option for Chelsea rather than Fernando Torres as i feel it would give the club a whole different style to attacking especially if Chelsea aquire the marvelous midfield tactician that is Kaka and the attacking fullback SergioRamos all three signings look like they can be accomplished.
Fortunatly Bastian Schweinsteiger doent look like he is coming, this is good for Chelsea as he probably wouldn't adapt well to the Premier League. Also Mesut Ozil is a 50/50 to sign, well he is like this with many clubs' fans thinking he will join them but i think the best club for him would be real Madrid as with their new managr they will certainly win things and if Kaka does join Chelsea, there will be a gap in the starting XI in midfield and he would obviously make it into the first team with Gago & Van Der Vaart being urged to leave as makeweights for people like Gerrard.
I'm not too sure about R.Lukaku's future but i think i remember seeing somethng on a website about him either signing a new contract or sayng he wants to stay for another year.
Mueller will not come if Ancelotti feels he is paying too much for him as i don't think he will gamble atleast £24 Million on 5 performances for Mueller at the World Cup.
Ashley Cole will be part of the deal for SergioRamos or shall i say: Ramos will be part of the deal for Cole with £810 Million along with him.

YES AND PIGS MIGHT FLY, OH AND MAYBE DALE WINTON'S HOMOSEXUALITY WAS JUST A FAZE? SERIOUSLY MATE YOU ARE WAY OFF THE MARK WITH WHAT YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN AT STAMFORD BRIDGE THIS SUMMER, THE RUSSIAN HAS ALREADY SAID IN A VERY RECENT STATEMENT, THAT CHELSEA HAVE BECOME SELF EFFICIENT AND WILL LIVE WITHIN ITS MEANS, MEANING YOUR SPENDING 100M IN A WINDOW DAYS ARE OVER, EXPECT A REPLACEMENT FOR COLE IF HE LEAVES ALTHOUGH IT WONT BE RAMOS, HE HAS RULED OUT A MOVE TO ENGLAND AND HES A RIGHT BACK NOT A LEFT BACK. THERE WILL BE ONE OR TWO MORE SIGNINGS BUT NONE WILL BE MARQUE SIGNINGS.

YOU SHOULD READ THE CHELSEA WEBSITE ONCE IN EVERY WHILE, THERE HAS BEEN A FEW OCCASIONS WHERE THEY HAVE SAID THEY ARE GOING TO USE THE SQUAD THEY HAVE GOT TO PUSH ON, THEY WILL BE USING THE YOUTH A LOT THIS YEAR AND WILL TRY TO LOWER OUTGOINGS, BUYING PLAYERS WITH EXCESSIVE WAGES IS NOT THE WAY CHELSEA WILL BE GOING, A TRUE FAN WOULD KNOW ALL OF THIS.

Ancelotti WILL get his money to spend if he feels that it is needed to spend for them to win the Champions League.

Chelsea promised a Marquee signing last season but nothing happened and they have said so again so this time i think it will happen.

Desperate times for the reds if they are trying to talk up Gosling a fringe player who scored a goal in the derby ! Won't get a place in front of Peanuts, Fella, Arteta, Billy, Jack or Tiny Tim, should get in front of Osman though.

Spoke last night to a press photographer with strong contacts in merseyside and works the 2 big clubs who said Gerrard has been given until the end of the month to decide. Big fear for Gerrard is the release of the info and apparently the advice is to get out of the way till it dies down (2 years). Also said no one interested in Masch because the price is too high and nobody (apart from City), has got the sort of money they are asking.

NonLeague strikers Steve Smith (Poole), Jamie Hammond (Cheltenham Saracens) and Michael Chennells (Windsor & Eton) are to be given 1 year deals at Swindon Town.

However, Jamie Hammond and Michael Chennells will be loaned out until Christmas to Forest Green and Staines Town respectively, in order to keep fit and get match experience.

Also great news, spoke to somebody in the know at The County Ground and Charlie is staying for this season. Forest dropped interest and so Charlie is staying Joe Garner is now going to Doncaster Rovers on a 2 year deal and not Swindon Town.

Swindon to also confirm the signing of Tony Capaldi from Cardiff City on a free, whilst Casper Ankergren is moving to Swansea on a free therefore no new goalkeeper for Swindon (who had been linked with Casper) unless we can agree a deal with Man City for a loan deal for Stuart Taylor or sign Andy Marshall on a free from Aston Villa.

Arsenal

In my opinion arsenal should be looking at a strong cb and a cheap reliable option to cover rb and cb. Wenger will moat likely have young cbs to cover for the first choice cbs. Song can also cover for cb with eastmond his cover.

In opinion more than probability I belive wenger should sign:
(all in pounds)

konscielny (reportedly 810m)this is a definate signing.
Richards (8m)not very likely but in my opinion would shine as a back up to rb and cb.
Van der vaart (8m) a class player not overpriced and would provide as perfect back up to the attacking minded midfielders.

now then supa did i say they were confirmed offical transfers? no i said they were rumored ins and outs you moronic dipsT


oh and to the editor i got this news about gosling after my friends source told me, he said it would be in the papers first before made official every were else. imo i would wait a week to see if it is legit, in this case i think it is, it sounds legit, and bill kenwright had been delaying contract talks with him months before he got injured.

liverpool never did put a deposit down for a player, the only south americans we were linked with in january were loderio, pastore and diego tardelli, now that roys took over i can't see any of them happening, (btw iam the same guy who told you about dan gosling and replied to you editor about that bitter blue supa)

I love all this talk of Milner and Young to Liverpool just because Hodgson says he wants to buy English, the fact is that Aston Villa will not let these two go for anything less than their own valuation which is a lot more than Liverpool can afford. Hodgson has ear marked the following bargain English players, Danny Murphy 2m, Matthew Briggs, Micah Richards 8m and Joe Cole (free) Gosling (Everton or is he free) and a shock return could be in for Pennant. So there goes the transfer kitty. Liverpool hope to get 30m for Mascherano, 6m for Lucas (I will drive you to Milan myself), 8m for Kuyt and already have bagged 5.5m for Benayoun which has been earmarked for purchases. With this cash they know they need to get a strong midfielder, a strong left back and a striker. Rumors include players with PL experience Sulley Muntari (Inter), Tiago (Juventus), Riise (Roma), Heinze (Marseille) Ballack (free agent) Gallas (Arsenal) those names considered without PL experience are Elia (Hamburg) Meireles (Porto) Bellamy (Man City) {editor's note – Ballack has joined Bayer Leverkusen.}

To whoever replied this!

To whoever said that obviously aint got a clue about rangers if they think that bougherra is the highest paid rangers player. think u might have to look that up dafty and come back on this slaughterin folk when u know the real facts.

I didn't post the piece you replied to, but come on common sense would point to the fact that rangers can't afford 45k a week, if bougherra is or isn't the highest paid doesn't really matter, its well documented that rangers are on a very tight budget and the reported 5mil for transfers may also cover wages, so if Bullard does come to Scotland he will be wearing Green and White.

Having brought in Jay McEverley yesterday (06/07/2010) Mark Robins will be turning his attention to former West Bromich Albion playmaker Robert Koren. It is no secret how ambitious Robins is and this has been a key factor in signing the 5 players recruited so far. Koren is thought to be taking a hefty paycut to compromise with Barnsley's budget but, he sees Barnsley as serious promotion contenders in the upcoming NPower Championship season.

Rumours have been circulating around Oakwell about Wolves' Republic of Ireland International Andy Keogh joing the South Yorkshire outfit. Keogh was shown around Oakwell 2 weeks ago and has, in principal agreed to join Mark Robins' side in the next 2448 hours. The fee is believed to be £800,000

I tried the PFA but they said they knew nothing about it, but they may have just been wanting to hang onto it to put it on their site ahead of this one. Though I have just checked their site and they still have nothing on there about it. Is it a definite end of contract?}

It was originally posted in The People last month and on SkySports a week ago so really is old news, I guiess it's a slow news day at some papers having to copy and paste old news from other sources.
By the way Ed, you're up late, that was a quick response!! {editor's note – yeah, I am trying to finish off compiling the PFA transfer list and free agent list. I have been unable to get their site to allow me to download the pdf file for some reason so I am having to remove all the formatting from the pages by hand instead. I thought it might be useful to have a list on the site for people to look at, it is not easily accessible on the PFA site, it is such a slow site for starters.}

Im a die hard Arsenal fan and iv seen lrumours from several sources that we are considering making a bid for young Ajax centre back Vertonghen!
Vermaelen and Vertonghen were Centre back partners before Arsenal bought Vermaelen and had worked up a solid partnership together at the back for Ajax.
Vermaelen has been nothing short of amazing since his move to the Emirates so i just wanted to know if there is any truth or a good chance of this becoming a reality?

Yes, there is truth in it although Vertonghen is left footed same as Vermaelen and Wenger wants a right footed CB (hence interest in Mertesacker & Tasci nothing in the Marquez rumours, if Gallas was surplus due to his age then why go for someone just 1yr younger?). Jagielka was Wenger's first choice, but Everton have demanded more than he's worth and we all know Arsene doesn't play those games! Vertonghen and Jagielka can both play holding mid as well as CB, this would provide back up for Song and Diaby too. He is also interested in Ajax's midfielder Christian Eriksen although its doubtful he'll move for the 18r old Dane this summer.

Seen someone claim Alex Hleb's agent has been doing a deal with Arsenal nice one! Next you'll be telling us David Bentley's on the way back! Nonstarter. Why do we need Hleb when we have Arshavin, Walcott, Rosicky and Nasri!

Liverpool are on the verge of confirming 5 FREE TRANSFERS. Joe Ledley will sign a 5 year deal at Anfield, however he will cost at a tribunal about £3m. Dan Gosling, from bitter rivals Everton, failed to agree a contract in the Blue half of Mersey, and does not feel ready to leave the city. Liverpool have made an offer, and will accept it next week. The contract is a 6 year deal worth £35k per week, and will rise to £45k in his 4th year. Milan Jovanovic will be announced as a Liverpool player this Friday, having signed a 3 year deal. Joe Cole is tossing up his three offers from Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool. He wants to work under a British manager and is split on the decision. Tottenham know there chances of making the Champions League are slim, with the spending spree of Man City, and the near takeover of Liverpool from Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid al Maktoum. Miroslav Klose will agree a 3 year deal at Liverpool to partner Torres up front. His World Cup heroics have put many clubs on red alert, but not Bayern Munich, who are prepared to let him leave for free.

Liverpool will spend money this transfer window though. Bryan Ruiz of Twente and Jeremy Toulalan are the big names that Hodgson is looking at. Ruiz will cost £12.5m and Toulalan will command a fee of £16.5m. Taye Taiwo will also snub Atletico Madrid for Liverpool, completing a move for £8m. Steven Taylor is having a medical at Liverpool on Thursday, after agreeing his wages and transfer fee with Newcastle. He will cost £6m.

Just to recap
Klose free
Ledley free
Gosling free
Cole free
Jovanovic free
Ruiz £12.5m
Toulalan £16.5m
Taylor £6m
Taiwo £8m

Liverpool:

Expect Liverpool to be linked with a lot of low priced players becoz everyone thinks this club hasnt got the money to get in players which is obviously false

If Masch does go expect liverpool to get one from either nigel de jong or garreth barry ..
Masch departure is likely but where is not certain since the new president of barca has come out and said they are skint ..

Torres and Gerrard will not go .
and to make sure of that Roy will sign a player before the world cup ends
Jo Cole seems to be very likely as well as Ashley Young

Jovanovic is some maybe even Liverpool is trying to avoid since there is great confirmation of the new owners coming into action before this months end and they can bring in someone better perhaps

Babel will stay, reira will leave

Expect owen to come back to Liverpool this ploy will be used as a morale booster to the team, as a mere show rather than reliance on the injury prone striker

Bryan Ruiz is a very major possibility and sources say the boss is also looking into Samaras ..

A central defender is expected to come this summer as this is sadly Carragher's last season .
No names appear with solid backing yet
but expect it very much to be english ..

Gareth Bale and Taiwo are also being linked, Bale not so openly but there are serious talks taking place on this matter

Turan will be brought in, its just a matter of time ..

Kristian Nemeth and Pacheco will be given their chances this term, the decision on Ngog will be made after the preseason matches ..

Ashley Young might be being used as a smoke screen to sign Milner which would make more sense (this is not confirmed and heard it from a seriously unreliable source but common sense says she might be right on this one)

There are 3 names being talked over which are a real possibility maybe not in the messed up media but between us people who actually make such things happen Podolski, Tevez and Aguero ..
all three have been understood to have an interest themselves ..
Before you believe in the media and say this is rubbish coz Liverpool hasnt got the money let me tell that Liverpool does have the money to buy one of these players .. and if the new owners move in quick with their acquisition expect one of them to join in ..
Although it is also understood Arab owners who are most likely to take over will want players that usually that lot likes Robinho and that sort . so people like Podolski might be looked over ..
but Podolski would make proper financial sense and footballing ..

Thank you for reading, most of this will be confirmed as true or false within two weeks
so all i say to Liverpool fans is to be patient and don't believe or listen to any crap even to mine ..
take care

07 Jul 2010 02:05:05
Odds on Joe Cole to join Liverpool have been slashed. Odds have gone from 8/1 to 4/5 for him to be at Anfield next season. A good free signing, certainly better than Babel on the wing.

Worryingly, Gerrard and Torres both look odds on to leave the club. Gerrard 4/7 to leave, Torres 4/6 on Ladbrokes.
Liverpool will never be able to find players of their quality as replacements, but with the £100+ million they could get from these 2, plus the £25 million from Mascherano sale, Liverpool could buy 67 quality players and add some much needed depth to the squad.

Yes, nobody else wants me. good, sign here.).medical on thursday, will be on plane to slovakia with rest of squad 1.5 mil agreed with scthorpe, Hooper "i am very pleased to have signed for leeds as this is a massive (ly overrated) club and i hope to help the club get back to where they belong" (League One!)

Liverpool FC
Ins :Steven Taylor(Newcastle)=5M
Maynor Figueroa(Wigan)=6M
Joe Cole(Bosman)=£0
Milan Jovanovic(Bosman)=£0
Bryan Ruiz(Fc Twente)=12M
Joe Ledley(Cardiff)=Free transfer
Unfortunately i heard terrible news that Daniel Ayala will be going on a season long loan to Real Valladoid with a option to stay.
I have a question for the editor.Do you think there is any chance of Liverpool signing Bryan Ruiz, Joe Cole, Joe Ledley, Steven Taylor or Arda Turan {editor's note – Ruiz, possibly, but I wouldn't put money on it. Cole, I hope not, but it is seeming more likely, though I don't trust the bookmaker's odds as it wasn't so long ago that Ribery was odds on to join! Ledley would jump at the chance, I am not sure he will get it though. Taylor is another one I hope we won't sign. He is a Geordie and loves Newcastle but he is not exactly mr popular with his team mates by all accounts. I would say it is possible rather than probable. As for Turan, he has been begging Liverpool to sign him for years, he even publicly mentioned that he still wanted to join after the club failed to make it into the Champions League. If the club want him he will sign of that I have no doubt, I just hope Roy does want to bring him in.}

In addition to my last rumor, I'd like to add that Sol Campbell won't be joining Celtic. He, like Ledly, is stringing you guys along, hoping for an offer from a premiership side.

It's just a sign of the times. Even the third rate EPL players are turning down moves to the SPL :/

 

07 Jul 2010 01:45:42
GIBSON AND DIOUF WOULD COST MORE THAN 14 MILLION MATE, SO BE SERIOUS, NOT TO MENTION DIOUF IS BETTER THAN COLE.

How would they? They are reserve team players who have achieved nothing significant in the game so far. They would therefore realistically be valued at around £34m each (maximum). Carlton Cole however is not worth £14m (more realistically around £8m). As Ferguson would be keen to give these two promising talents match experience I don't see why you're mocking this rumour. I'd say its a fairly lamentable deal well it would be if Carlton Cole was actually any good! Like Ferguson would ever be interested in paying good money for him!

 

07 Jul 2010 01:44:36
Fellow Rangers fans, please stop deluding yourselves. Yes, I would like to see Chris Brunt come into Ibrox, but it won't happen sadly. He'd cost upwards of 4m and would most certainly want more than the 16kish that Walter Smith has stated would be the maximum wage for a single player. He is a Rangers fan, but I would be massively surprised if he took such a wage cut

Goodwille will not happen. The Rangers management don't believe he's worth 3m and frankly neither do most fans. Conway is a different prospect however, with Rangers prepared to offer 2m for the winger :)

Bullard is another pathetic made up rumor. Wages are way out of Rangers' (and Celtic's) reach.

Joe Ledley is not going to Rangers OR Celtic. He's clinging on for a move to the Premiership

Promise is indeed a possibility, but work permits are an issue. The first believable rumor I've read on here for a while

I'll not comment on Goncalves because I genuinely don't know

Celtic fans, I don't know much for sure, but Bellamy and Keane WONT come. Wage demands are far too high and Keane is worried about his knees on the dodgy SPL pitches
Also, Scott McDonald is NOT coming back. Thats just ridiculous.

Lets stop kidding ourselves now eh? And post rumors with some realism.

Ed Reckons theres truth in this? {editor's note – pretty much along the lines of what I have heard. Shame though, the SPL could do with the boost of some big names joining.}

Alright im getting a bit confused with all these "in the know" people.
Firstly i have no idea where you all get this info from.

Ive done a far bit of looking around and can't find anything to match half of these rumours (not saying your all lying)

Ed do you know anything on this alonso back to liverpool rumour? you seem to be the only one on here who is actually a bit clued up about where rumours are coming from and if its a reliable source or not {editor's note – I have to admit I do try and trace the source of everything that sounds credible, you can normally tell how real a rumour is from the source. I have yet to look into the Alonso rumour as I dismissed it as wishful thinking, I just can't imagine any team wanting to let Alonso go. I will check it out and see, but I don't want to get my hopes up because Xabi is top class. I hope it doesn't turn out to be just paper talk!}

Why on earth do fans of these Championship sides think they'll sign Robert Koren?

According to this site (in the last couple of days), he'll sign for Leeds or Preston. He's been released by West Brom. But, he has just captained his country at the World Cup. If he moves anywhere, it'll be to another Premiership side or to a top level side abroad. He won't step down a division if he wants to keep 'captaining' his country. The vast majority of international managers will demand that their captains are playing in a top league.

I'd be amazed if he signs for a Championship club.

 

07 Jul 2010 00:48:42
Everton were sniffing around Arne Friedrich but his age stopped them offering a long term contract. If Yobo leaves (likely) a versatile defender will be needed but it won't be Onuoha as there is bad blood between Citeh and EFC due to the Lescott saga and Moyes pitch side squabble with Mancini. Everton may opt for a gamble in New Zealand's impressive Winston Reid or Tommy Smith Reid covers CB and RB, Smith CB and LB.

England under21 starlet Dan Gosling has walked out of Everton for nothing after the Premier League ruled he was free to quit over an amazing administrative mistake.

Gosling argued that he could leave at the end of his contract without any fee on his head because the Goodison outfit had failed to put an offer in writing to him.

And the Premier League carried out a full inquiry, with statements from both Gosling's camp and Everton, before deciding the Merseyside club had slipped up with the player allowed to go on a free transfer.

Everton wanted Gosling to sign a new deal, with chairman Bill Kenwright making verbal offers but failing to put that in writing by the midMay cutoff point.

Now David Moyes's club will miss out on a fee. They could have made around £4million at a tribunal if Gosling joins a rival Premier League club.

Versatile Gosling was in and out of Moyes's team over the past two seasons, with his personal highlight being the FA Cup replay winner over Liverpool. He had also been stalling on a new deal for football reasons as he wants to play more often.

Gosling is recovering from knee ligament surgery and will not be able to play for around three months. However he is now clear to speak to any club and negotiate his own terms.

Sunderland and Newcastle United are heading the chase, with West Ham also alerted about his availability. Gosling told the Premier League tribunal that he has not spoken to any other team, but now he will be heading for a round of talks.

The result is a bitter blow for cashconscious Everton who will be bitter about the outcome. Senior officials all put their case to the inquiry but one basic mistake has cost them a fortune.
Liverpool and West ham are the front runners so far.

Though I have just checked their site and they still have nothing on there about it. Is it a definite end of contract?}

SENSATIONAL MAN UNITED NEWS

I was at Old Trafford today and heard that Manchester United have been talking to Carlton Cole in a deal thought to be in the region of 14 million

Because of lack of funds United have offered West Ham United Darron Gibson and Mame Biram Diouf in hope of getting transfer fee reduced.

This is the talk outside the ground so watch this space

United till i die

GIBSON AND DIOUF WOULD COST MORE THAN 14 MILLION MATE, SO BE SERIOUS, NOT TO MENTION DIOUF IS BETTER THAN COLE.

Who do you reckon will be signing, any news? {editor's note – I expect Robbie Keane, but I certainly wouldn't be surprised if any of Prince–Boateng, O'Hara or Belhadj ended up at Villa Park for next season. Maybe even all 3 if the club have the funds for them.}

Mate get real with yr RANGERS NEWS! wot a load of lies.firstly jimmy bullard makes 45k a wk at hull and theyve said if they loan him out the loaning club will covr his full wage, now rangers highest paid player is bougy on 16k a wk, r u tellin me they can afford to giv bullard 45k and they couldnt match kris boyds wage demands, ur living in a dreamworld mate get a grip! second, rangers said yesterday they wudnt meet wba's valuation of chris brunt for 2mill, yet according to u were signing him for 3mill and goodwillies price is 3mill and apparantly were gettin him for 1.8mill??! stick to playin with ur subutteo set mate, the fact is were skint and our deals will be few and far between and no epl players cos we CANT afford those wages!



To whoever said that obviously aint got a clue about rangers if they think that bougherra is the highest paid rangers player. think u might have to look that up dafty and come back on this slaughterin folk when u know the real facts.

Chelsea Team for next season:

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

In my opinion i think Aguero would be a better option for Chelsea rather than Fernando Torres as i feel it would give the club a whole different style to attacking especially if Chelsea aquire the marvelous midfield tactician that is Kaka and the attacking fullback SergioRamos all three signings look like they can be accomplished.
Fortunatly Bastian Schweinsteiger doent look like he is coming, this is good for Chelsea as he probably wouldn't adapt well to the Premier League. Also Mesut Ozil is a 50/50 to sign, well he is like this with many clubs' fans thinking he will join them but i think the best club for him would be real Madrid as with their new managr they will certainly win things and if Kaka does join Chelsea, there will be a gap in the starting XI in midfield and he would obviously make it into the first team with Gago & Van Der Vaart being urged to leave as makeweights for people like Gerrard.
I'm not too sure about R.Lukaku's future but i think i remember seeing somethng on a website about him either signing a new contract or sayng he wants to stay for another year.
Mueller will not come if Ancelotti feels he is paying too much for him as i don't think he will gamble atleast £24 Million on 5 performances for Mueller at the World Cup.
Ashley Cole will be part of the deal for SergioRamos or shall i say: Ramos will be part of the deal for Cole with £810 Million along with him.

YES AND PIGS MIGHT FLY, OH AND MAYBE DALE WINTON'S HOMOSEXUALITY WAS JUST A FAZE? SERIOUSLY MATE YOU ARE WAY OFF THE MARK WITH WHAT YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN AT STAMFORD BRIDGE THIS SUMMER, THE RUSSIAN HAS ALREADY SAID IN A VERY RECENT STATEMENT, THAT CHELSEA HAVE BECOME SELF EFFICIENT AND WILL LIVE WITHIN ITS MEANS, MEANING YOUR SPENDING 100M IN A WINDOW DAYS ARE OVER, EXPECT A REPLACEMENT FOR COLE IF HE LEAVES ALTHOUGH IT WONT BE RAMOS, HE HAS RULED OUT A MOVE TO ENGLAND AND HES A RIGHT BACK NOT A LEFT BACK. THERE WILL BE ONE OR TWO MORE SIGNINGS BUT NONE WILL BE MARQUE SIGNINGS.

YOU SHOULD READ THE CHELSEA WEBSITE ONCE IN EVERY WHILE, THERE HAS BEEN A FEW OCCASIONS WHERE THEY HAVE SAID THEY ARE GOING TO USE THE SQUAD THEY HAVE GOT TO PUSH ON, THEY WILL BE USING THE YOUTH A LOT THIS YEAR AND WILL TRY TO LOWER OUTGOINGS, BUYING PLAYERS WITH EXCESSIVE WAGES IS NOT THE WAY CHELSEA WILL BE GOING, A TRUE FAN WOULD KNOW ALL OF THIS.

Hi guys. Just wanna say i am looking forward to the new season under Steve Coppell. I know Alan Walsh quite well. And he said categorically that Paul Hartley has 1 year left on his contract at Ashton Gate. Steve Coppell has said to Walshie and Walshie said to me that Harts feature in SC'S future plans next season. So any Hearts, Aberdeen fans who wants to grab him, well they got NO chance. And also I read in the Daily Star today that SC is lining up a £2m bid for unsettled Stoke striker, Dave Kitson? Ed I was wondering if there is any truth about it in the Stoke area? {editor's note – nothing I have heard has mentioned it, doesn't mean it is not happening, I don't actually know who represents him, can anyone tell me who Kitson's agent is? Sorry, he is one of those players that seems to sit under the radar until the transfer window.}

Man Utd's main targets are: Gary Cahill(nearly done £13 million), Sotiris Ninis, Alexis Sanchez, & 1 of Karim Benzema or Luis Suarez! Although there is a lot of talk surrounding Sneijder moving to United my source had no idea about this except the "paper talk".

I know Part Exchanges between clubs are few & far between but United have been touting the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Carrick, Anderson, Nemanja Vidic & Ji Sung Park to Ajax, Inter, Udinese & Real Madrid along with making it known to interested parties that they are available should the price be right.

I am led to believe Uniteds first bit of business will be Ninis & Cahill in for aprox £22 mill combined & Vidic to join Real Madrid for about £20 mill.

Don't have huge contacts at Liverpool but from what they are saying Ashley Young will be there come August along with bids for Cattermole, O'Hara, Nedum Onuoha, and Joe Cole is 50/50 between them & Tottenham

Many Thanks,

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

to the turdz,
you say your a liverpool fan. surely you must be aware that when fernanado signed he took a basic wage cut to come and join his boyhood hero's, THE TEAM HE ALSO SUPPORTS.and the deficit was roughly about 10k a wk, maybe more!! and mainly due to the tax structure in england but nonetheless A WAGE CUT! so why would a man of this mentality be suddenly driven by money..like most of your posts this one is drivel too. and also, chelsea bombed ballack and cole due to wage cuts to get in line for future UEFA and FA rulings..why would they start flopping in 200k a wk signings???
bottom line is this, if he goes then it won't be for less than £60million maybe £70million upwardsDUE TO MERCHANDISE REVENUE HE GUARANTEES ALONE. this sort of investment in the squad with the £1215million already there and a few more sales would rebuild ANY PREMIERSHIP TEAM! that's roughly, lets say £75million to rebuild before you clear the crp out and the mercenaries{mascherano and co}. £75100million in the hands of a english managerfinally!!! not all bad.
cheer up, greats have come and gone for decades before and greats will come and go for a long time in the future!!
and remember this..he will go eventually, all imports do. so, shall we sell him for fck all in 2/3 yrs when he's knees and legs are completely gone cos of the battering he gets for the half seasons he plays for currently? for me there is pros and cons to be him staying and going

s.p

CELTIC

Editor, whats your opinion on the following HOOPS targets: Campbell, Ledley, Bullard I can't help but think were being strung along by these players to stir up EPL interest. Would love to see Ledley & Bullard join also one of Keane/Bellamy. might be just out of reach for our budget tho.
STIGBERTO {editor's note – it does seem like they are just keeping you on hold in the hope they will get an offer from the EPL instead. Ledley I don't believe has ever hid his preference for the EPL though, I am pretty sure his visit to Glasgow was just out of courtesy. I think Bellamy is the more likely of those 2 to join, Keane seems set for Villa and City would like to get Bellamy out of the Prem, last thing you want to do is give your rivals a decent player!}

All Teams evolve and the Forest Team may be evolving sooner than many of you think or possibly approve

Celtic are now really pushing hard to recruit Kelvin Wilson they will triple his wages and have offered many other inducements, the press reports are perfectly correct, I am not sure of the fee involved I believe around the £3million mark and this time Kelvin though very reluctant to leave Nottingham is tempted and has to consider this, we could well lose this Player.
Spurs believe it or not came in for him in Jan

We have also recieved a BiG money offer for Cohen again the press reports for once are accurate, linking him with Bolton and again this is quite likely to happen, though I must stress NEITHER are yet a "Done" deal but they are likely.

I am told that the three Amigos are "Done" deals and should be announced shortly

However !!

We also have several other signings that as yet nobody has mentioned or know about at least one of which is a big name.

I think you will find the next ten days or so could be revolving doors time at the CG, one thing is certain, the Management will not weaken the side.

The Perch announcement Today will be the Catalyst for a flurry of announcements.

Exciting times ahead methinks

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

I can confirm Taylor isn't going anywhere and i would'nt say Joe Cole is a big star name? Or is it just me?
I've heard Stephen Ireland could be on his way to Anfield in 9m move. Anyone else heard this??

COPIED & PASTED JUST FOR YOU ED, MAYBE THE SILLY RUMOURS MAY STOP NOW?

""DISMISSES CHELSEA BUT WON'T COMMIT TO LIVERPOOL YET""

Fernando Torres wants evidence that Liverpool is moving in the right direction before committing his long term future to the club.

The Spanish hitman took time out of his preparations for the World Cup semi final to address suggestions that he has been in talks with Chelsea.

Torres dismissed the idea, but did admit that he would need talks over what progress the club is making off the field.

Some reports have suggested Chelsea have already made a bid for the striker, but they are wide of the mark with Liverpool dismissing the idea out of hand yesterday.

Yet the speculation is likely to be a prelude to concerted efforts by the London club and Barcelona to prise Torres out of Anfield.

Yesterday though, the Reds centre forward insisted that he wants to get the World Cup out of the way, and go on his first holiday in three years, before sitting down to listen to Liverpool plans for the future.

"When the World Cup finishes I will speak to the people at Liverpool they will explain to me the real situation of how things are at present, the future of the club, and I will talk to the new coach, " he said.

"There's time for that, but first I want to finish the World Cup, go on holiday, as I haven't had one for three years, rest and then there will be time to talk about all of that.

"The situation isn't going to change whether we talk soon or later. Honestly, teams won't be able to do anything until the World Cup has finished. The players here prefer to wait there is time."

Liverpool are adamant that they do not want to sell Torres, and they have insisted they have no financial need to cash in on the striker.

So far, there have been no bids, and two things would have to happen for any sale to proceed. The player himself would have to demand a transfer, and the fee would need to justify any sale, as Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Madrid did last summer.

There were some suggestions that Torres will speak to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in South Africa, but that is sheer fantasy given that the Spanish camp is in lockdown as they attempt to win the World Cup.

Abramovich is in fact in South Africa as part of Russia's 2018 World Cup bid, though Liverpool are bracing themselves for the billionaire to back a serious attempt to sign Torres.

New manager Roy Hodgson has already spoken to his star striker, and will travel to Spain for a meeting before the 26 year old jets away on his muchneeded holiday.

Club officials are hoping they can show Torres that a takeover deal is imminent, which will turn around the club's financial fortunes, and restore them as a leading player in European football.

R A N G E R S

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

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

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

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




This is Such a bad team i hope to god ur talkin out ur arse lol! Davis LM? Dont see that happenin!

I heard from John Flecks Dad Davis will be put into a central role this season! Lets wait and see eh

People stop thinking your club is going to sign every player in the world!

Chelsea: I can see schweinsteiger & sergio aurgero signing but aurgero only if anelka retires, schweinsteiger will be the replacement for ballack and cole.

Man utd: I can also see manchester united signing either Ozil or sneijder and signing benzema, suarez or fabiano but not all of them maybe 2 or 3, i can also see the lights of carrick, berbatov and anderson leaving.

Arsenal: if fabregas doesn't leave you might get joe cole or he might go to spurs but you will proberly not sign anyone if fabregas stays.

Liverpool: I can see you signing a striker, midfielder, defender but the won't be world class and torres may leave which gives you more money for players

Nugent, healy, goncalvenes, tommy smith, commons, welcome, brunt, lovenkrands, conway, goodwillie, koren, bullard, that australian midfielder, lee miller, the montrose cb. these are all rumours about rangers,

ed which are true please!

JD {editor's note – I can only tell you which ones I have heard, it is entirely possible that some of the others might happen though. I have heard of a bid for Nugent but the price was too high, Healy was an option but I don't know if Rangers have actually bid for him or not. Tommy Smith is a confusing one, I have heard Rangers bid for both of them, Pompey wanted too much for their one and similar with Ipswich but I wouldn't be surprised if Rangers made another bid. Welcome was supposed to be flying to Scotland after a break following the World Cup, I don't know if that is still the situation though. Brunt was just too expensive to even be considered, but Conway was approached, I don't know any more on that one though either. Koren wasn't interested as he wants to stay in England and his wages were too high anyway. The Aussie is the one with the Eastern European name right? I have heard of interest in him if it is the same guy. There is another player who plays in Holland Rangers went for and were given permission to speak to, I don't know who it is, just that Smith was extremely unhappy with his attitude. Something to do with him seeing the club as a mere stepping stone to the EPL, he wanted too many clauses allowing him to leave if certain clubs bid. I would love to know if anyone could tell me who it is?}

Im a die hard Arsenal fan and iv seen lrumours from several sources that we are considering making a bid for young Ajax centre back Vertonghen!
Vermaelen and Vertonghen were Centre back partners before Arsenal bought Vermaelen and had worked up a solid partnership together at the back for Ajax.
Vermaelen has been nothing short of amazing since his move to the Emirates so i just wanted to know if there is any truth or a good chance of this becoming a reality?

Charlton are hoping to sign Liam Rosenior and have offered a contract.

Also Bournemouth have accepted an offer from Charlton for Brett Pitman. The offer consists of £300,000 (which could raise to £500,000) plus Izale McLeod. However they are unwilling to let the transfer to go ahead, until they find a shortterm replacement for Pitman, while McLeod recovers from surgery.
