Stockport County sign Tom Collins a useful 20 year old striker from Hayes. More signings to come at Edgeley Park(4)(5)Who are the realistic targets been targeted apart from past playersThis is a very good signing for Stock port. Tom has bags of potential, a good eye for goal and a quick turn of pace. County may unearth another gem in this young lad.Realistic Targets: Keeper king CB Tunnicliffe and Havern Midfield turnbull and Mainwaring Striker Dickinson.

Miles Addison so sign for Afc Bournemouth or Ipswich he is currently weighing up his options fee will be around £150k with 10% sell on clause(6)(6)Signing for everton. source daily mailEVERTON? Please tell me you replied to the wrong post lolYeah try see his potential as a future England starDont want Addison back just a lump at the back, no real football creativity. Alot of better centre backs out there. Zubar and Cook to be our starting 2 next season^hope this isnt the views of every bournemouth fan, he's an excellent centre back and what other centre backs are there that have 'football creativity'No this isn't the view of every fan, far from it. I would love him back but I imagine he will stay in the championship because it's plain to see with games and confidence under his belt that the championship is his minimum levelIt's not, we would love him back

Tomasz Kuszczak has signed a 3 year deal with the Albion subject to a medical.

Derby youth team products Chris Jones and Ryan Connolly to sign for Hinckley United ahead of the 2012-13 season(2)(5)Jones would be well above that level. Was on the fringe of the first team but was released due to the emergence of Tom NaylorI heard jones was going to go on trial with burton

 


07 Jun 2012 22:26:27
Mohamed Diame to sign for Liverpool when his contract at Wigan runs out.(16)(22)It has run out at beginning of monthHe's having talks with Sunderland

 


07 Jun 2012 22:25:10
Any new Preston rumours anyone(2)(9) 


 
Preston signed Keith Keane todayHemmings to come to his senses and sack risdale and hoofball westleyWhy sack them we are have the biggest player transfer in years and getting players in who want to play. PR Aand GW have done their groundwork and spent next to nothing on transfers.get real palCome and watch us play then tell me we play long ball you plum.Youre signing Non league & lower league players & journeymen who have done nothing over their very long careers and suddenly Westley believes they can get you into the Championship......When they couldnt even get their own team out of League 2 or the Blue square premier league.

Just got rid of Bailey Wright because he wasnt any good and when other teams started to scramble for his signiture Ridsdale made Westley take him off the transfer list.....because he was good

Shows Westley knows nothing about footballers and is at heart a non league manager.

If this fails this season, PNE (are in trouble) but could be in massive trouble and heading to league 2 as the players dont gel (or just cant hack it in this league)

You havent even kicked a ball so dont say youre looking at the play offs as clubs in this league are signing Championship & "young" players and PNE's average age is 26+ and the players are from clubs at the bottom of League 1

Sorry but it's fact!!Hoofball so take it you never saw preston play last season ,they dnt play hoofball ,why do people think westley likes the long ball game get realIf you're tearing yourselves apart before a ball has been kicked it just saves the other teams a job. The stark reality is that you need Westley and you need his methods to work. Stop whining and get behind your team.Yeah your signing no oneBailey wright is staying,clearly you no nothing, every player signed bar richard wright (keeper) is in there prime and no-player over the age of 28. give your head a shake silly boy,dont tell me your a lasher..if so i would be more worried about holloway going to swanseaSorry but I think your wrong mate, we are signing decent players from teams in the League following the example of Charlton, Norwich and Southampton.

We have signed Buchanan and Laird arguably the best 2 left backs in L1, one of them wanted by a Championship team. Who's to say if we hadn't got there first for most of these players that other teams wouldn't have signed them. Tranmere fans were gutted when we signed 2 of there players and I think we will really have a go off it next season. One thing you have to remember is we are in L1 we will not be attracting the best players from the Championship, we will be signing players who can do a good job for us in this league.

We have only signed them to 2 year contracts so if we do get promoted they will not be hanging on the wage bill in the Championship if they are not good enough or surplus to requirement.Westley is rubbish with no idea. Sack him now before too lateCan't think of anything worse than watching a Preston game.Westley got stevenage challenging for promotion with a team of league 2 players, so this shows you know nothing.... also we've only signed one non league player, and a lot of the players we have signed we offered contracts at championship clubs so they aren't 'awful' league 2 players as you would say... PNE will surprise a lot of people this season and i don't care what anyone else says about us tbhSorry, but it's not fact, most of the players we've signed are from our level or higher, do your research before you comment and make yourself look an idiot. k?"Our level or higher"? - dream on.

07 Jun 2012 21:23:35
Reading are looking into Kenny Cooper of New York Red Bulls. NYRB have put a £5.8million price tag on Cooper and have said that they will not accept a lower price.(2)(15)He failed to shine in Germany and he also failed to shine at Plymouth....certainly can't see him in the PLIf his price tag is 5.8 mil, I doubt we will cough up for that. I wouldn't discount us paying that for the right player though.

 


07 Jun 2012 20:25:08
Cheltenham Town are lining up a move to sign Jon Parkin who was released by Cardiff City.(8)(13)Must be joking - 9,000 a week at Cardiff and Cheltenham just can't afford thatI live in birmingham and support cheltenham town loads of people are talking about mark yates being birmingham news manager and marlon pack following him there. it was part of the butland loan deal.

Any new Blackpool rumours anyone?(2)(11)Ollie for Swansea, done deal according to Welsh radio.Complete bull.Ian Holloway would never leave blackpool for a club like swansea even if they are the premier league. Swansea will be relegated next season without rodgers and sigurdsson out swansea have no chance unless they dont get moving in the transfer and managerial market.Would be strange considering the swans chairman is and has been abroad on holiday for the last 6 daysCom on ollie put us out of or misery utpOllie we love u x pleeeeze stay .best trip since he been here x

07 Jun 2012 18:35:32
Aaron Martin signs season long loan with palace would suggest new centre half is close any ideas(27)(3)Watch simon kjear of denmark in euros rumours is he is in line to come to saintsScott Dann has been enquired about.St ledger and turnerSaints fans Martin any good?He'll be great in the Championship... Still young and needs fitness, hopefully he will gain that with Palace!To the guy asking about martin, he's a good player just need experience and game tim,e be good for palace and himselfMartin big and young centre half, decent player, jus needs game time, but will be the future of our defenceHe's quickly maturing into a very good defender. Great move for him and you Eagles.To the fan that asked if he is any good , he is very good but as people have said he needs to get games to improve , he is tall fairly quick and is your stero-typical english center back , removes the danger , he cna play it out from the back but if too much pressure gets put on him he cna crumble but with games he will improve and get this out of his game

good move for him and both clubsCheers guys will watch for new signings exciting times ahead

 


07 Jun 2012 17:53:20
Stephen Quinn of Sheffield United is set to join Ipswich Town. The fee is believed to be 300k, rising to 500k depending on clauses.(24)(15)

 


07 Jun 2012 17:43:21
Leicester City to make a 2.5M bid for Charlie Austin from Burnley and will use Sean St Ledger has part of the deal(12)(27)It will take 3M to get Austin minimumWe are just about to sell one main striker.Theres no chance we will sell Austin too.Good luck with that one! Nonsense as usualWere the hell are leicester getting all this money from !That not a good offer 3.5 and not give st leger!Can't answer whether the rumour is true or not. Can answer the 'money' question though. LCFC's owners, the Rakriaksorns, are wealthy, with an estimated fortune of several hundred million pounds. However, they themselves reputedly have a backer in Asia, whose personal wealth is measured in Billions, and who is content to provide & underwrite further finance as and when required.
From a British perspective the Thais appear to be throwing money at the club without return, but there is an overall plan to make Leicester City the most popular English club in Thailand, by means of media coverage, marketing & merchandise and by establishment of an academy network which is linked to LCFC's renowned 'home' academy.
This process is now well under way and working well. IF all works out, and so far things are looking very promising, the potential income to the club would be huge! Promotion to the PL would guarantee even larger returns, hence the willingness to invest now!Austin has 4 years left on his contract. There is no way he will leave, FACT.Austin has 2 years remaining on his contract

Celtic striker Gary Hooper strongly linked with Wigan, Fulham and Everton, this could open the door for Huddersfield starlet Jordan Rhodes to join in a fee around £6 million.

Huddersfield will be looking to replace Rhodes with the experience ex Crystal Palace striker Andy Johnson.(2)(44)Hooper will be staying at Celtic for a crack at the Champions League !Palace fan here. You will NOT see AJ at huddersfield and you will NOT see rhodes at celtic, stupid rumoursHuddersfield will look to bring in Billy Paynter from Leeds as a replacement for Celtic bound Rhodes.I agree with this guy^^^Rumours Rhodes wants to sign fo Celtic for a crack at champions league football according to his father who acts as his agent. A good season in the champions league and he could get an even bigger move to one off the top premiership clubs.

Byars38625A good season in the champions league?? with Celtic? knocked out at the first opportunityRhodes's father is goalkeepimg coach at shef wed so cannot be his agentPeople stop saying hooper is leaving for 5-6 million..WE TURNED DOWN 7 from soton!Rhodes going nowhere end ofBilly Paynter as replacement for Rhodes! how about someone who actually scores a few goals!Rhodes will not leave Huddersfield until his Dad becomes an agent. Currently doing the FIFA qualifications to become one. Shoudl be an agent by the end of the coming season. He wants his dad to have a % of any transfer fee. Source Andy Rhodes (Jordans Dad)Why would rhodes leave leave huddersfeild when they have just got promoted surley he will stay another season to ttry and
get promoted to premCome on please Celtic fans!! Your league is absolute rubbish, Gary Hooper wouldn't be able to handle the pace in the Prem!
As for getting Jordan Rhodes..........keep dreaming. UTTWhy would Rhodes take a step down to CelticHuddersfield a step up from celtic ? are you english that far up your own arses ? euro 2012 lets see how the best league in the world copesCeltic would be a great opportunity for Rhodes - he would have a chance to be part of an up and coming team with a proud history, can establish himself within the national squad and test himself in Europe. If he stays where he is he is just wasting his time in a rank team struggling to stay in championship next season. What sort of history and appeal does Huddersfield have..........^^I agree with you. What have Huddersfield ever done? In the past few seasons Celtic have beaten teams like Barcelona, AC Milan and Man United, reached the UEFA Cup Final and qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League twice. The last time Huddersfield won a league was in 1980. Get over yourselves.Scotland cant even qualify for anything mate so be quiet^Haha "lets see how the best league in the World copes" The EPL does have players that are not English or did you not know that??Celtic only beat nobodies in a nobody league. They only play 2 games in europe before they are knocked out!I wonder why there isn't the same en-ger-lund hype as normal in the run up to the euros as normal..........is it because the realisation that the self proclaimed "best league in the world" is full of foreign imports with the best players in the league not being English as is seen now in the national teamDazbhoy

for the english people on this

i think you forget were you come from because you have good teams in england doesnt mean they world beaters i.e liverpool or arsenal full of world class talents like van persie agger but wait how meny english players play in the actual best league in the world the spanish league must be the best leauge in the world god ronaldo left the so called best leauge the spanish league is full of stars unlike enland i.e messi ronaldo xavi inesta david villa ozil need i go on and none of them want to go to england the 6 of these plaers are better than any english players to date i.e rooney world class player no soubt and a big celtic fan but he couldnt lace messi's boots god messi is actuly a winger and hes scored more goals in 1 season than rooney scored in the last 2 me personaly EPL is the most over rated league in this world well see what happens to ur famous epl when the money gets budgets haha

dazbhoyErm how can you talk about England when Scotland are incredibly rubbish, they arn't even in the euros plus your first division is the standard of league 1. The EPL has so many foreign players because it has the appeal to all the other countries as the best league in the world.The EPL is not I repeat NOT the best league in the world!Your post dazbhoy holds no credability on many points but these two are the ones I can be bothered to type

1. You think Agger is world class
2. You think Messi is a winger


Get back to the bagpipe lad

rotherham united have signed kari
arnason on a 2 year deal from aberdeen
who would have thought a so called tin
pot club would sign an international
who was playing against france last
week bet thats shut u up wendys(15)(8)Good signing for a league 2 club and what's wi all your toytowners fascination with Wednesday? Why would we be bothered who you sign lol. I always like to see Rotherham do well, don't see why though wi all bitching your do about us. Concentrate on your signings without bringing us in to it lolU keep signin them then to play in league 2 while we prepare for the championship!!Great signing. SPL = L1 standard so a better player than you could've expectedWell done. When you get 38,000 for your final home game please let us know. {Ed013's Note - A one off game is no good, you want that every week!}Like any well supported team ed if were in top league we will get that every week. Was good to see a full stadium in league one even though a one off don't you think? {Ed001's Note - it is always good to see a stadium full, but especially in the lower leagues.}After what I saw sat season at Bradford regarding the way Evans conducts himself and manages the players I have to feel fr you guys. He was an absolute disgrace and should not be allowed to manage a football club! Don't say you were not warned!

oxford united have rejected a second bid for there striker james constable from fellow league 2 club bristol rovers. the bid was in the region of 200,00(11)(10)180k actualyWhat a joke, he's worth 180k at most. Oxford can keep him. Rovers fans would like to see Akinfenwa or Mcloed in the blue and white quaters now.Constable is never worth 200,000!

We could have Ellington back on a free, im sure he'd notch a few in league 2He will keep him thank you very much. Wonder if u will come back with another bidHope the Gashead above isn't talking on behalf of all Rovers fans... I don't want Akinfenwa!

I'd happily take McLeod though.

I rate Constable but he's never worth in excess of 200,000 so I hope we move on to other targets.When 25% of the profit goes to Shrewsbury, and OUFC bought him for 40k. OUFC will only pocket 145k of a 180k bid.
He's a club legend with the fans. Could they buy better for 145k and risk upsetting some of the fans?
And tbh, James Constable probably wouldn't of joined Rovers. He's stated so many times, he does not want to leave. Certainly not to another league 2 club.
He turned down a lot more money at Bournemouth and Swindon to stay.I wouldn't want akinfenwa all he can do is let the ball hit his ass and hope that it goes inHe didn't turn down anything at Swindon! He never actually spoke to them because of the disgusting threats etc he got from some of our so called 'fans'.

 


07 Jun 2012 16:34:45
Rotherham have signed Kari Arnason
from Aberdeen. Fact! Signed and sealed(6)(7)Yes Icelandic international good you've got an international, Iceland population 100? or 150? must be a good signing

Quatari royal family have been accepted by the alfayed family to purchase 49% of fulham with mo alfayed still running things . Expect jol's transfer kitty to go up from 15 mil to 35 mil this summer with more dough being pumped in over 3 years and no im not a fulham fan but i do have a pal who is high up at harrods . This will be made public by tues at the latest . For the record im scottish n support stenhousemuir n dont bother talking about their transfers cos the only ones we can afford our the ones that kids stick on their arms!.(9)(27)They already own MalagaNot to mention he sold harrodsThey also own PSG, looking for an english team to develop. was rumoured to be fulham or newcastle in line!I thought he'd sold harrods and fulham a while backNo he only sold harrods. Still owns FFCMy friend is also very high up at Harrods.
He repairs and seals all roofing areas.
He told me he got kiddnapped by aliens who told him that the cottage is gonna be knocked down and turned into a chelsea members meating club.
Not sure if I belive him
Lol
LukeThe thing is Fayed sold Harrods to the Qatari royal family so there is a connection. Seems feasable.This ^^^This is very likely to be announced within the next two weeks.

The Qatari Royal Family want to spread their footballing ownership to England after purchasing Malaga and PSG outright. This is very different as they will not be majority shareholders and Mohamed Al Fayed will be in charge of the club. They will pump money into the club and it could be key in keeping Dembele and Dempsey.

As someone above said, Mohamed Al Fayed has previously done business with the family in selling them Harrods. The story has credibility but whether or not a deal will come through, we will wait and see.

Very exciting on the banks of the Thames.Why didn't Qatari's do a deal when they bought Harrods seems odd they want to buy into FFC now. Chances of it happening ..nil

 


07 Jun 2012 16:22:58

Bristol City, Brighton, Nottingham Forest, Hull City and Wigan Athletic are all keeping tabs on Czech Republic and Galatasaray striker Milan Baro(13)(21)He's joining BrightonWhere is all this talk of Brighton getting players coming from gus is not even in the country and has made it clear no offers have been made for any playerAnd where did you here he is joining Brighton cos a member of my family works for the club and they know nothing about itThought Fulham were affter himSorry, but where is it written that the board have to inform the parking attendant before making a purchase?Brighton think they are going to sign every Tom dick and Arry'Ye he wont join a championship side and there is no links at wigan for him

 


07 Jun 2012 16:14:28
Wrexham are keen to sign up midfielder Sean
McAllister following his release from
Shrewsbury Town(15)(7)Good player. Should be in league 2Shame we released him,will always give you a 100%. Should be at a top half league 2 club at least.McAllister is better than conference league. good player and wish we still had him

 


07 Jun 2012 16:13:00
Malky looking to improve his squad after being backed with a decent transfer budget. Some Targets are rumored to be Celtics star stiker Gary Hooper; QPR midfielder Adel Tarrabt; Blackpool Midfielder Matt Phillips and Newcastle United midfielder Haris Vuckic who had a short load spell at Cardiff earleir this season.(7)(43)Celtics star stiker Gary Hooper; QPR midfielder Adel Tarrabt to Cardiff?

ha...ahhhh. brilliant. best laugh i've had all day.Aye that's right....hooper is gna sack potential champions league football and go back to the championship....more chance of Cardiff changing they're colours to pink!I can only see one of them being willing to play in the Championship.Taarabt is going nowhere mateNice wish list not a chance of any of them and you will be the next pompy selling your soul to play in redIm a cardiff fan and do we really want a prem fail and a sunday morning league player we could do betterTo the cardiff fan.. no you cantTaarabt leaving the Premier League for a consistantly useless play-off team when he can stay at a QPR team that are building for a big future or choose somewhere abroad with the other bigger clubs he's been linked with? Somehow I think you've made yourself a little wishlist for your poxy little team, good luck with that!I don't think Cardiff will have an excess of 25M to spend to sign any of these players you've mentioned when most of them will stay with their current club or move on to bigger and better things!We're not a poxy little club and we havent sold our soul to anyone we still have the blue kit as the away kit and the chairman and the " investors " are pumping 100,000,000 into the club so think about that before you post on here25 mil maybe not, but we have a lot more cash than we used toI'm a Cardiff City fan and all i got to say is this person is living in Dreamland, Taarabt no never happening, Hooper, Celtic denied an offer from Southampton saying Hooper's worth 20mil so never happening, Matt Phillips i can only see him moving on to a Prem team, Vuckic is the only one that we would be able to get from these playersWere not having 100 million pounds to spend on players look before you postTo the 4th from bottom comment any club can do better that those two failsIt is you that should read the post clearly,he said 100mil into the club,not on players.Why would taarabt leave to go to a championship club. he just got out of the championship, will be staying with qpr unless bigger club comes inYou ain't getting Taarabt but you can have Bothroyd back, He's PonyNa you can keep bothroyd 60% of his game is playing while he's laying on the floor

 


07 Jun 2012 16:12:15
sorry to put you all down but people saying they are close to signing alex cisak dont get your hopes up he is no way near championship standard this is coming from a leicester fan who used to watch cisak play. but im not moaning becuase who ever he joins leicester will stick 5 goals past him hes rubbish.(4)(5)07 Jun 2012 20:00:15
Cisak never played a game for LeicesterCisak did play but got injured when we were in league one i think he wasnt really great

 


07 Jun 2012 16:08:43

News concerning Southampton:

Martin heading to Crystal Palace is part of the incentive of the deal to obtain the services of Clyne, who is expected to sign at the beginning of next week. Expect Danny Butterfield also to be heading in the other direction. Jay Rodriguez deal to be sorted out by Friday evening. Other targets include include Danny Gutherie, who's advisors have been contacted regarding a possible return. Lee Barnard is expected to be sold to Sheffield United (£400,000), also Jonathon Forte to Notts County (£275,000). Brighton are expected to sign Dan Seabourne for a fee of £800,000. Andrew Surman has also hinted at a possible return to the South Coast club, with Robert Snograss of Leeds seen as a possible alternative to sort out the right midfield problem.

Southampton have decided that they also want to sign a centre back and a goal keeper, with Jack Butland lined up- though further talks will be held when he returns from the Euros. Any enquiry has also been made by Oxford United for Tommy Forecast.(26)(17)I think it's too early to be saying Andrew Surman will be coming to Saints, however i know for a fact he is down on the South Coast (Holiday) at the moment because he's married to my teachers sister.If you are suggesting that Surman is a possible solution for Saints on the right hand side of midfield, my recollection of him is that he is a left sided player!Clyne off to NewcastlePrefer it to be connected with the signing of Zaha.Sounded plausable until you mentioned Tommy Forcecast .Ha more like 50k for forte or a free, no club has that money to waste on an inconsistant playerWhy does Tommy Forecast leaving the club not sound plausible? He has played not part in the club since joining about 4 years ago!All went downhill for me from the mention of Surman. Glad to hear that we've decided that we need a cb and gk though!Hope Martin is only a loan as i think he did well last season and if we sell Seabourne then we will need to sign more than one center backWith the depature of Chris Hughton from birmingham and their financial problems saints are set to raid birmingham for Curtis Davies and Jack ButlandGood player but this is coming from a palace fan we dont need any more defendersWhere is sufc getting that kind of money from they will only be selling and signing freebies they are pink lintSnodgrass has already stated that if he is moving anywhere it will be further north than LeedsForte inconsitent no way hes always done brilliant for us notts county id like him he will score loads in league 1What is the palace fan talking about, we have one senior centre back, so martin is a great deal for usI really like forte (saints fan) but he can't cut it in prem but would be a good buy for notts county and he is up there with the fastest I've seen at st Mary's (Walcott and chambo)Clyne wants to join Man U and not some mid-table club who are no bigger than PalaceWe are deffo interested in signing forte. which i am delighted about, surely 275k tho is abit steep seeing as your now prem. 150k would be a bargain for us.Why would OUFC go for Forecast?
They have 3 pro keepers. 2 of them are top quality keepers for their league.
So OUFC have not enquired about him... FACTWhats the point of joining man u when he wont get a game because the likes of chris smalling and phil jones are normally playing in that right back position but if he comes to saints he will get a game as i dont see butterfield or richardson cutting it in the premClyne won't join Soton he knows and any one who's watched him properly that he's a future contender for Walkers right back spot for england so why would he waste his career there?^btw jones & smalling are playing rb currently as rafael is the only 'natural' right back who in fact can't actually defend or attack...Your saying that he would waste his career if he joined saints but he is more likely to waste his career joining man u as he wont get a game but at saints he would be a regular straight awayI think you`ll find that joel ward`s natural position is centre half but he played right back last season just like smalling and jones did. what we need is a striker who actually knows where the goal is

With Southampton now having only 2 recognisable centre halfs they are set to make an ambitious move for Stoke centre half Ryan Shawcross in a £8M offer while keeping an eye on the contract situation surrounding Nottingham Forrest's Luke Chambers(10)(40)This is possibly the most ridiculous rumour I have ever seen posted on here. If shawcross was to ever leave stoke it would be to a top premiership side for closer to 20m. I had forgotten how saints fans have such a distorted high opinion of their club.Shawcross... the same shawcross that turned down a return to man u.... lol wake up sunshine.You must be joking right? The only reason Shawcross would leave Stoke is to go a big club not to a team that's just got promoted. No disrespect to Southampton but it is a true fact.Why would stoke sell thier club captain worth around 12+ million to a newly promoted club that have no chance of getting him because his contract lets the team he supported as a kid united have first debs on him before he is sold to any club so this rumour is rubbish and out of somones dreamsThis isn't from a Saints fan as they would know we have 4 recognised centre backs.Saints actually have 3 recognizable CBs and one of them (Seabourne) is rumoured to be going out on loan..Joining Martin who has gone out on loan today. So 2 CBs will be needed, but I highly doubt Shawcross is one of them. When it comes to fans having a distorted opinion of their club trust me their are much much worse than Saints fans.Yep, some people have a distorted high opinion of Saints. They're called football fans. Anyone else noticed it's half term this week? {Ed003's Note - I have }This is clearly a Skate making this rumour up. I know this is a rumour site but no one will no Saints buisness until it is annouced by the club its self, its the way they do things under NC & NA.Some of our fans make the rest of us look really badAt the second post - nowhere does it say the person that posted this is a Saints fan, and they don't exactly sound like a fan either, just someone with a rumour on another clubLol he would never leave stoke and he's worth at least 20 mGreat deal for Palace - in the limited games I've seen him, I thought he was our best and by some way quickest centre back......... He is a talent. Hope he does well for Palace and we get him back for next season. I actually thought he would be able to cope with the prem better than many of our other defenders who lack a bit of pace.Surprised we've let Martin go for the season. Good move for palace and will be good for his development. We are thin at the back now though. Two quality centre backs needed now. Will be a key area this season.The shawcross rumour is not coming from saints fans. Another bored skate no doubt.Ive actually heard this shawcross rumour too.
If you've ever heard NC speak about the ambition he had for saints then you'd know that this is exactly the sort of player we will go for
Shawcross will have no interrest in joining a newly promoted team but if we could get him to st marys to speak to the management, see the set up & see the vision im certain he would sign in a heart beat.
Do not underestimate saints, we have THE BEST set up in the country & are destined for big thingsLaughable rumour, next!We have a better set up than you stoke so why wouldnt he want to sign for us and yes i know that man u have been interested in him in the past and had a bid rejected for him but maybe thats because he thought that he might not be a regular for them but at saints he would be a regular so stop criticising us just because we might be interested in one of your playersTo the post above ,you might be intrested in one of our players but he is way out of your league and always will be and stoke are one of the best set up teams in england FACTPoor deluded Southampton. Enjoy your season in the Prem

Sigurdsson - £7million
A.Johnson - £10million
N.Powell - £6million
Dann - £3million
Huddlestone - £7million
Smithies - £4million

Joe Cole will be given another chance to impress after an excellent season in France, and also expect much more participation from youngsters such as Robinson, Flanagan and Sterling.(16)(58)Some quality players them like for the scousersHuddlestone 7million???? i think not more like 700kWhy do people say scott dann to liverpool! he is Rubbish, as last season proved for definite. championship standard.I take it you mean turkish millions !!Dann not worth anything like that,championship his level.as for the rest what diff are they going tomakeRobinson, Flanagan and Sterling for Loan agent?Hate to break it to you Liverpool fans but you aint the big attraction you once were. The players mentioned are average players, none of them are world class, this is how it is for Liverpool now i am affraid. As for Scott Dann he is as good as anyone you allready have at the club.Deadwood Skrtel, Bellamy 3 million ???. We cant get rid of skrtel Agger or Johnson. The back four is where Brendan should be building from. I would go for Milner,Adam Johnson and break the bank for LlorenteA johnson coming back home to sunderland near his family unlucky!So where is carroll in all this deadwood,oh i forgot hes just woodMaxi has left for free as has aurelio. bellers going nowhere and as for the rest of this post, UTTER WASTE OF TIMEFor 1 aurelio has already left on a freeSterling must be given last 25 minutes per game and lfc must sign adam johnson he is beter than downing, siggurdson is god in mid and a best penalty taker as well as we must go for a world class striker like matias suarej or lukk de jong are possible moves.Kuyt already left on a free!Pacheco to NorwichSmithies!! wake upSkrtel 10mil?!?! you're having a laugh, we won't sell him for less than 20milAs if Spurs would sell Huddlestone, much less for 7 mill

Ross Jenkins to go on a season long loan to his home town of Wycombe Wanderer's from Watford.(7)(8)With McGinn coming back he is now our 4th or 5th choice centre mid. If there were a recall clause I could see this happening.There has been dialogue between the two clubs in regards to this deal. It will be a good move for the lad as he will be able to get some first team football.McGinn has yet to sign, but Jenkins to Wycombe would be just what he needsHow or why do people make these rumours up?^ True about McGinn, but if he leaves he has no soul. Jenkins has no place in the team, not his fault but a loan would do him some good.I honestly don't understand why McGinn wouldn't want to resign. Who would want to take a player coming back from over a year out the game? I'd love him to stay and play just in-front of the midfiled, he's quality.

Chris Hughton is the new Norwich manager and Birmingham have given him good luck(29)(5)He will need itWhy does he need it? We prove everyone wrong last season, why can't we again? We have some great players like Holt, Ruddy, the Bennetts and Howson in our team.

preston are reportedly moving in on free agent jon parkin, the former fans favorite would be an ideal signing for westley as the big man up front with ian hume(10)(17)I hope this is true, as He'd be most welcome back at Deepdale.As a pne fan i can tell you now we wont sign him he is nowere near wat westley wants in a strikerI hope so bring back the beastJon Parkin said in a interview with WalesonLine.co.uk that when he joined Cardiff he would never go back to Preston after he was treated so badley by the club when they wanted to reduce his wages and the only thing to do was walk away from a club after they told him they didnt want him.....so cant see him going back no matter how fat and slow he gets.Can not see John Parkin surviving the twice a day training sessions with WestleyImagine this. The power of Parkin, the drive and determination of Hume and the speed and finish of Zoko---job done.

Arsenal academy defender Ben Glasgow has turned down an extension with arsenal to sign a professional contract with stoke(18)(2)Stoke have as much chance of signing Lucas as Southampton have of signing Shawcross for 8 millionThe beautiful game to anti-football good choice mate!The beautiful game that all arsenal fans keep banging on about is total crap all the players r over rated and give away more fouls than most other teams when the game is not going there way and can not change there style of play to challange different teams styles of play like stoke, and that is why arsenal fan are all up in arms when a player choses to jump from a team like arsenal to stoke becasue he has more chance of playing first team football in the future. Plus he has signed onto stoke new Under21 future development team that has been started up just like ajax and barca did years ago . Good luck to the ladArsenal dont even play beautiful football anymore, its just a ball over the top to van persie and he carries you st team! the fact that swansea played better football than you says it allWhen Arsenal win something then preach how football should be played to other sides. When RVP leaves they're screwed

wanting to pay the demands that
some have made they have gone to
Latvia where Arturs Vaiculis at FK
Daugava is available. An under-21 cap

Matty Fryat is a possible charlton target. powel worked with him a Leicester.(4)(13)Why would he leave a team that have a chance of going up to a team that will stuggle to stay out of the bottom 4Did you watch charlton at all last year, we are quality, and bottom 4 seems a wee bit unlikelyIs that the same team that spent loads last season and massively under achievedBoth clubs will be in the top half so that is rubbishHull are going down. we are going upI love it how all teams write us off saying we will struggle to stay up, we are one of the richest and most attractive teams in the championship and although we haven't signed anyone yet, the rumours that are going around, it sounds like we can attract better players then Leicester which we can because WE WILL FINISH ABOVE YOU"Why would he leave a team that have a chance of going up to a team that will stuggle to stay out of the bottom 4"

You wish, we'll finnish above you!Not good enough I'm afraid"Is that the same team that spent loads last season and massively under achieved"

101 points. Enough saidFryatt is moving to the Leicester area to be near family. He will not be moving down to a London club, maybe one from the Midlands?

Burnley are close to signing Stephen Davies and James Bailey from Derby for 2M

Davies scored 12 in 20 starts for Derby last season and will replace Jay Rod

Bailey is a 23 year old box to box midfielder who will hopefully replace the outgoing Dean Marney(9)(9)I heard its 2.5 million but yeah you are right about burnley being after them two.
They dont however want Jason shackell after derby declined their enquiry.Although ide like to keep em both but im resigned to it and bailey didnt get in anyway so 2.5 mill would be nice

Adrian Mariappa wanted by Bolton. Player is keen. Fee to be agreed. Wigan and Newcastle have an interest but no approach has been made. Player now on hols, so nothing will be finalised for another week or two.(2)(20)Coming to Reading + is on international duty not hols...Bid from Bolton for Mariappa has gone in, but Watford feel they can get more from circling Prem clubsWould love it if we could sign Mariappa, He could team up with Sordell, his former team mate is at Bolton... so who knows .....Good signing for Bolton if they can push it through.LOL...Bolton XD never gonna happen

Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates has emerged as a front runner for the vacant Birmingham City job.(4)(16)Not good enough a manager - he's staying at WR.Most of the Cheltenham fans wanted him sacked at the start of the season and many would jump at the chance to off load him if the compensation was right.Yates has a vision at CTFC - Clark is a free agent.Also worth pointing out he was one of three managers to share 8% of the Birmingham fans' vote. Paul Ince took almost half the votes alone.

new villa boss Paul Lambert is going
to try and sign up free agent Michael Owen and raid his old club for winger Anthony Pilkington for 4million(19)(18)Pilks is worth at LEAST 6M and seeing as McNally is such a lad he won't sell anybody to LambertI agree McNally will not allow any player to be sold to Lambert so you can also forget about Holt going to Villa, unless they pay stupid money for him, IE 6M , likewise Pilkington will not be going anywhere certainly not for 4M, rumour was Liverpool went in with an inquiry last season and the number was 6M

 


07 Jun 2012 13:46:04
MK Dons have reached a mutual agreement with Izale Mcleod according to recent sources at the club with him joining when his contract expires(3)(13)When his contract expires? dude he's a free agentIn fairness, his contract will run until June 30th, like just about every other footballer's.

I can't see it happening. We had two looks at him last season against Barnet (cup & PSF) and it was the same old Izale, five gilt edged chances to tuck away one goal each time in the 89th minute. He still misses far too many opportunities for the chances he gets. We're building a team for the Championship and he just doesn't fit that criteria.He is a natural goalscorer r u kidding he is exactly the player we need to get into the championship automatically next season-and he is a free agentI agree fully with this. Thanks for the memories Izale, but that's all they should be, memories... Never go back.DOnt talk crap, izale is a great player.. and he dont score all his chances? 20+ goals... alright thenI would take him back in an instant. Arrogant yes, however he is still the Dons top goalscorer and the most goals in a season and maybe he has changedI think Izale mcleod is a fantastic goal scorer and yes he may miss 5 chances and then put away the 5th, but it's the fact that he gets in those situations and scores them! That my friends is called positioning and only a few top strikers have this ability. He scores 20 plus goals every single year aswell. Not to mention he is mk dons all time top goal scorer aswell with 54. Nothing more to say...Living in the past! he's not got that explosive pace anymore to get away from defenders. A large number of his Barnet goals were penalties and he was still missing sitters all season.If Robinson and Harford think that Izale is the man to get us promoted, then we may as well turn off the lights and go home. A shockingly unambitious target, if it's true that is, which is very unlikely. Anyway, NEVER go back... Ince anyone?You deluded mk dons fan.... im an mk fan and clearly know more then you... izale would be the perfect man for promotionMe? Deluded? Oh dear....Never go back? Heidur Helguson machine at Watford. Goes to Fulham in P.L and a nightmare begins, then he goes to 3 other clubs and it gets worse and worse.. Goes back to Watford and couldn't score more goals if he tried! Now in PL doing well scoring for Q.P.R. Sheringham back to Tottenham from Manchester United is another great example. I think Izale will be brilliant for us once again and will have confidence because he is a fans favorite here.Izale has brilliant movement (at this level) just abit hit and miss with his finishing, perhaps Ian Wright could sort that out.

Victor Moses to Tottenham for £6million + Giovanni Dos Santos to Wigan. (Accepted).(11)(27)Doubt it is true , but if it is ? Good deal for Wigan if Moses still wants to leave .Moses stated that he will sign a new deal provided Martinez stays (which he has), He won't leave but Wigan will get Dos Santos anywayDos Santos is the better player so Spurs would hardly pay money and give him for Moses but Gio wants to return to La Liga anyway so that deal won't happenMoses is a better player than dos santos, and im not even a wigan fan...dos santos is good but moses is class would love to see him at york city hahaYeah dos santos is a better player than moses! good one do you have something wrong with you

Watford will be announcing friendly against Shrewsbury as part of the inevitable transfer of James Collins to the Hornets!(15)(0)The looming friendly does sound like we're doing some sort of deal with them. However the friendly will not be confirmed until after the Capital One draw, as the date for that game is not yet confirmed.Collins may move to Watford but this friendly is not part of any transfer deal. (Mr T)How is it inevitable?This was already agreed and whats inevitable about it?Why would we want a friendly with watford as part of the transfer? watford aren't a big club.It was actually part of the deal when Youth coach Dave Hughes moved to Watford from Shrewsbury.^ It's like a cup final for youWhy can't he stay

Free agent Paul Green in talks with Preston North End.he was released by Derby at end of the season and will sign next week on a two-year deal.(3)(20)He's a bit too good for Preston really.Lol. Greens to good for league 1.Why would pne need another midfielder its a right back and two strikers that pne will be looking for nowGreen by himself is better than pne...He left derby cus he thinks he's too good for us so why would he go league 1Well that is complete rubbish seeing as though Paul green is at the euros, so won't be signing anything until after then. Also he left derby cause he thinks he play for a high champ or prem team, this is not preston. Come on next joke!!!Preston.....mid table League 1 team at the very best....why would Green join a team almost in League 2 ......Was it 2 wins in 20 odd games....ROFLBecause even a league 1 preston is better than derby

Preston North End are ready to pounce for Carlisle United's set piece expert James Berrett to join Francois Zoko in Graham Westley's revolution(6)(13)What set pieces he only takes corners.and he's crap at that.and zoko going to charltonZoko wants to play for a higher level, and berret wont go to preston he loves carlisle and knows how much they dont like prestonZoko has stated h is joining a club in the championship shows what you knowZoko left Carlisle to "test himself at a higher level", citing the Championship as his destination. He hopes to confirm his new club later this week. Never, ever going to Preston!Seriously, why do carlisle hate pne so much? this is a serious question.Zoko knows pne will get promoted so technically he is moving to a higher level and will playin in the championship nxt season. NORTH END forever woop woopBecause you are are closet league rivals and it is unlikely we will play Newcastle which is slightly closer.What when Carlisle finished higher than you last season we will even give you lubo we wanted him dropped all season promotion at Preston what toshNorth End a big club? dont make me laugh what a great season you had last campaign. Relegation candiditaes 12/13Zoko on his way to HuddersfieldPNE should really focus on their big local rivalries like Fleetwood and Morecambe who they will meet in League 2 before long...Just because Zoko said he wants to play at a higher level does not mean he is actually going to.The rumours I heard say Zoko's going to Middlesbrough.

Jay Rodriguez is set to seal his £7million switch to Premier League Southampton today in a deal that take Richard Chaplow back to Burnley(17)(16)For the 10th million time chaplow is not going anywhereWhy do people keep claiming that Burnley will get a player as part of the deal? They are getting good money as it is. Don't be greedy.Chaplow is NOT part of the deal.Would rather keep Chappers than farm him off to Burnley! Jay still aint worth 7 million irrelevant of how good a championship player he is.Chaplow wont go back on a permanent maybe a loanChaplow is not part of this deal yet, but Burnley have an interest in taking him back to Turf Moor.Chaplow has said he will not be going anywhere.Chaplow stated on twitter that he's going nowhere!No player exchange. 7 mill is plenty and enough of a tag for a player to live up to. Good player, really hope it works for us saints but that is more than enough money for his services.

I've also heard rumours of both Charlton and Watford being interested in Marcus BeanMy ass about Marcus Bean he is league 2 standard!Bean signed 3yr deal with Colchester today.

Watford have been linked with:

-marko futacs
-Joseph mills
-alex cisak (apparently he has already returned from holiday to start talks)
-Simon church (rumoured to have placed a £850,000. And before people say watford are much better finacially now so yes they can afford that.)(9)(12)I can see why we'd be interested in all these players. I'm just thinking that 850k for Church seems like a big risk. We've done well buying 500k> players. Would be far more interested in Futacs or Paul Taylor.Alex Cisak is going to Peterborough for a fee of 350kIm a watford fan and no way can we afford to pay 850,000 for one player who reading fans dont even rate!. It's much more likely that we will sign shrewsbury's james collins for a nominal fee like 250,000.I'm a watford fan and am fed up with people saying we dont have 850k to spend we've got one of the smallest debt in the league + mariappa sale, I do agree this one is unlikely tho, o and Carlisle fans didnt rate Graham when we signed him, look how that turned outI'am a cousin of Joseph Mills and this rumour is falseAlex Cisak for Watfordwill not be joining Peterborough and will become the No.1Some Watford fans really are naive. Sorry but, we were promoted and have made upwards of 30m in transfer fees in recent years. Yet we're still making losses so do not assume that one 2m means we can afford to splash the cash. Don't forget all of the money spent on pub, pitch and stadium too....Where has all this church rumour come from i think he could be a good signing but i can see nothing anywhere!Simon Church to Watford for 850k? Well it's better than the insane amounts of money I've been hearing in the region of 2 million or even 4 million, but still I can't see Watford agreeing for anything over 500k.Pretty sure we aren't going to buy anyone for over 500k since we broke our transfer record for Nathan Ellington a few years ago and he flopped big-time.

Brighton willing to offload Inigo Calderon to Crystal Palace, provided they can get long-term target Southampton's Danny Butterfield. This will leave Southampton/Newcastle et al to compete for the signature of Nathaniel Clyne, who is mulling over a new deal at Selhurst(7)(11)Brighton will never offload Inigo Calderon to Palace that would be a major step backwards. Carderon insists he is loving life with Brighton & Hove Albion.Calderon stated in the Argus the other day that he wants to stay at Brighton, plus he still has a year left on his contract.Aaron Martin from Saints to Palace on 12 month loan makes things interesting.Calderon would never go to palace what a joke a big backward stepCalderon to palace...h...draws breath....ha.{Big G Voice} Who wrote that rubbish about Calderon to palace surly that would never happen, but i said that about murrey last year, its a funny old world this footballing anything possible but really cannot see it happening with Calderon,Perhaps we could give Palace fans some free tickets to the Amex next season to watch some decent football including Calderon and CoButterfield would be a massive signing
Calderon can go to palace as he's an average league one player and take Barnes as well3-1. that is allI heard because of the signing of ward and aaron martin(loan) palace have lost interest in tunchev10th - 17th that is all.Yep, 2.5 million well spent. was it 10 goals mackail smith got? murray got 8 and scored the winner against you and the winner against united. i know whose side i'd rather be on!Yeh, I would rather be on the side that is BETTER (brighton!) oh and ashley barnes comfortably outscored murray, who was rubbish for youPalace fans look at the final league table who finished higher players don't move to clubs on the odd good result they want a team who will finish higher up the league and I'm afraid that's not you10th - 17th that is all - still couldnt win though

Stockport County have confirmed that promising full-back Andy Halls has signed a one-year contract extension with the club. Alex Revell also a target.(2)(8)

 


07 Jun 2012 12:17:25
Heard that Crystal Palace are close to signing Tunchev, and Wilbraham. Also are battling in negotiations with Futacs of Portsmouth, however there is competition for his signature.

Bostwick is another major target,

Rumours about a loan deal for Baldock are false - we havent made an approach although is one that has interested Freedman in the past.

Players expected to leave the club are Easter, Wright and Scannell(5)(6)Ngl no ones battling to sign futacs he's gonna stay with us for first team football :)Tbh mate he'll get first team football at palaceFutacs is not ready for Championship football yet. He has potential but he has a lot of work to do on his game before he is ready for Championship football. A season or two in Div 1 would benefit him.

GK Gunnar Nielsen (man city)

Barnet interested in taking Southampton's Sam Hoskins on a season long loan deal for the 2012-2013 campaign(9)(1)Good player from what I have heardA young talent who won't get a look in this year. Great deal for both sides.He should go to a league 1 club

 


07 Jun 2012 12:40:05
As confirmed in the Bucks Free Press today, as soon as the transfer embargo is lifted on Wycombe Wanderers (once the takeover is complete) Gary Waddock will act quickly to sign up players he has been holding talks with. These are believed to be Gary Doherty, Alex Revell, Izale Mcleod, Scott Donnelly, Chris Hackett and another unnamed CM. Although wages here appear to be a problem, the transfer fees received from the sales of Jordon Ibe and Kadeem Harris will contribute to it. Should Stuart Beavon be sold, no fee will be accepted under 750k and most of that money will be channeled into bringing a striker of his quality into the club. (Very reliable club source).(3)(8)Believe the unnamed CM is actually Marcus Bean

EXCLUSIVE: HARRY REDKNAPP TO BE APPROACHED BY CHELSEA REGARDING MANAGERS POSITION. as a west ham fan this doesn't concern me in the slightest but this is what ive heard 10 mins ago a source that works closely with the Chelsea camp(22)(27)Not happening. HR will retire next season - Gus Poyet will move to WHL and Alan Curbishley has been asked to manage Brighton from 2013-14.

Stevenage interested in wycombe Scott rendall.(6)(13)Only started two games for Wycombe in League One and went out on loan to Bristol Rovers and Oxford where he only scored about 4 goals, so I really doubt it.

just a little message to huddersfield fans- just heard from a reliable source that we are leaving the galpharm stadium due to the shares issue, we will play there for the next 3 years though as a 30,000 seater stadium is built back on leeds road were 10 pin bowling is and the car garage next to it. this will be confirmed by the club in the next 48 hours. and its going to be called the cowshed (huddersfield are going home)(12)(36)I heard about this to. i was wondering how we could pay for it but ive heard dean hoyle will team up with kirklees council and also as were in the championship we will be getting money from ticketing. we would of got quite a lot from the final win against united 2 {Ed007's Note - Any who replies to their own posts will be blocked from the site. It will give you some time to grow up.}Whos your 'reliable source' then? cos i dont think that this would happen, giants wouldnt fill the galpharm so surely either the galpharm would have to be reduced in size or closed down if it happened. the council wouldnt want to close the groundAbsolute rubbish!! Find something better to do!If the original poster responded to his own post this loses all credibility for me, even though I have heard something similarThis is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard ,
1. the team have a 99 year lease and cant leave
2. Kirklees council would never support it as they are shareholders in the sadium too and the sadium would fail without town
3. if you are reply to your own posts in support you've obviously made the whole thing up but are trying to look legitimateI have on good authority that this statement is complete rubbish!The site you mention couldnt fit a 30 sweater stadium never mind 30000 plus a car parking space of course. Most ridiculous rumour yet!Keep dreaming! Never ever will happen! The council would never approve two stadiums when we can't even fill one with two teams.

 


07 Jun 2012 11:54:34
Its believed Gary Waddock has spoken to various targets but can't act until the clubs transfer embargo is lifted. Those are believed to be: Scott Donnelly, Gary Doherty, Izale Mcleod, Alex Revell & Chris Hackett(5)(6)Seems realistic as both Scott Donnelly and Gary Doherty have said publicly that they would be happy to join Wycombe.

 


07 Jun 2012 11:54:10
Jobi McAnuff to Millwall(5)(29)Yeah because reading would really sell their captain and he would really want to give up the chance to play in the prem to go to millwall...Sure mate. Why is he going to millwall when reading are in the premier leauge????Would be a good signing, good competition for places on the wingsNot a chance he is reading captainIt would be very good if wall did sign him,but really cant c it happening! ps it wasen't so long ago when reading were in the old 2nd div! short memories mate!Hate it when people put rumours on here, that will never happen

 


07 Jun 2012 11:53:27
peltier will move back to huddersfield before the monday (must want to watch the england match with his old mates) lafferty may take a bit more time as contract talks are lasting longer than expected but should be wrapped up but next friday(16)(8)Both very believable! i hope they're true...Both believable? dream on! Why would peltier wanna go backwards in his career to a smaller club on less wages? LOL

LeicesterLadHow on this earth are Leicester a bigger club than huddersfield?
Leicester city = No historyJust have to wait and see wont we leicester lad. I for one will be back on here to post if he does sign for us. huddersladI really cannot get my head around this why would town want to sign lee peltier when we have Jack Hunt who is twice the player that peltier is ??Jack hunt twice to player peltier is?? are you mad hunts got SO much to learn about been a defender he had 1 good game against arsenal and has lived in that shadow ever since most over rated player since alex smithies. i for 1 would welcome pelts back gladly.

West brom to loan out Simon cox due to first team appearances last season, reading,Norwich and Swansea all in the pot for his services with grant holt possibly going the other way if Norwich secure Simon cox, you heard it here first(5)(18)We might need him. I'm not sure most what the players would think of Steve Clarke being the new manager.Yes that is exactly the sort of thing a club decides when they don't have a manager! What if the new boss really rates Cox !?!Simon cox. Is ex Reading fc. No good then. No good now so no thanks Not req at Reading fc. Norwich city can have him thanks for warning us.Don't want him back at Reading. He was rubbish for us, and I haven't seen much improvement since he's moved away. Marginally better than Simon Church.We (reading) sold him ages ago because he wasn't good enough so why would we get him back now?Holt will not be going to West Brom and we certainly would not take Simon Cox in exchange. If you are throwing him in you can add extra cash as well to compensate us for taking such a poor striker. None goer. We have just signed our manager, he will have his own targets so anything said before is likely to be scrapped.He was sold to swindon and swindon sold him to west brom, hes played more games for swindon than any other team, Good playerHe wouldnt be that bad when I have seen him playing for West brom he has been pretty good.Not saying cox is good enough or not but to say he isn't because you once sold him when he was young is ridiculous! is jordan rhodes not good enough for ipswich?
also cox definitely wont be loaned out. his contract was effectively up and albion took up the one year option so that if he leaves they can get a fee, i doubt they would extend his contract just to loan him outClarkes beta than Rangnick because of his knowledge and relevant successes in the Premiership. Ralph was bankrolled in Germany and when the call came to better himself he couldn't hack it. Don't get me wrong I think we could do better but we aren't as big a club as we think. If we can't pay 2 mil for HUGHTON I rest my case.Complete tosh, Norwich are not the least bit interested in Simon Cox, and as for swapping him with Holt ?, where do you come up with such utter dribble....

 


07 Jun 2012 11:40:01
Leicester set to complete the free signings of Fitz Hall and Zat Knight within the next week, following Sol Bambas depature and Matt Mills pending transfer to Celtic. Also moves expected for Norwood of Man Utd and striker Kevin Doyle from Wolves.(14)(19)Doyle would not even consider Leicester.Haha!!!
Kevin Doyle to Leicester!!!
Bahaha!
Made my day that has.Regarding Doyle, you will find LCFC have already bid for him and he wants to leave Wolves but is waiting till after the EUROS but whether it is LCFC or another club at least its step up to a bigger club for himActully doyle was asked about joining leicester and he didint say no he just said he would consider his options.Doyle said he would consider Leicester, but he WILL be leaving wolves as they are on a downward slide. Several Teams interested.Doyle will go to a top 10 premiership side or stay at Wolves he has said as much. How can anybody sensibly claim that Leicester are a bigger club than Wolves-that's just laughable.Leicester are a bigger club than wolves! and im a Derby fan and hate to say anything nice about leicesterSo whoever wrote the above post is trying to tell me a team that has never won the 1st division and never won the fa cup is a bigger club than Wolves who have won both these? You must be joking! after all the size of a club is based on History and historically Wolves have won it all domestically whereas Leicester have not thus Wolves are a bigger club! Also where have Leicester been in the last 3 years when Wolves have been entertaining Premier league football? Oh yeah only being able to reach mediocrity in the Championship. In my opinion Leicester are just a small clubLeicester are Wolves are both the same now, regardless of Wolves past as of now they are a championship club with a massive stadium bill hanging over their head!!Well what do darby no about winning things what was the last thing you won^^ How can you question what somebody knows? You can't even string a sentence togetherAdd derbies and Leicestershires (.which I still see As a cricket county not a football club) triple the amount, then you may be able to fill the little trophy case in the molinuex boot room! FWAWI presume you mean DERBY'S and LEICESTER'S? Not to pick you up on your grammar....
If we are judging 'size' based on what teams have won in the past then would you consider Wolves to be a 'bigger team' than QPR, Stoke or Fulham who have not won the FA Cup.
Surely it is about where you are now and not where you have been in the past?
And yes Leicester have done badly in the last few years but I would hardly say that surviving by a single place on the last day of the season and then being relegated is considered 'entertaining permier league football' unless you are talking about the opposition?^ ^ Premier league football is premier league football doesnt matter where you finish. Wolves may be in the same league as Derby and Leicester next season but they still must be considered a bigger club. Also just another little fact. Wolves and Leicester both got relegated from the Prem in the 03/04 season and which one of those has seen league 1 football, oh yeah thats right Leicester City have!

Rumour has it that Huddersfield Town are looking to sign either Emile Heskey or John Carew, both free agents, to partner Jordan Rhodes for next season. Also a bid for Blackpool's Barry Ferguson to bolster midfield(16)(22)You can have barry he as much use as heskeyOf course! Blackpool will sell there captain and he'd go to a team who'll be battling against relegation rather than promotionWouldnt pay heskey peanuts just same as all the old has beens that think they can finish their career in the campionship but miserably fail

Rumours have gone around that Liverpool are interested and are going to bid for Adam Johnson of Man. City for around 16m.
Gylfi Sigurdsson has also said in an interview that he would like to come to Liverpool, and if so, it will be a great boost to LFC midfield
24 year old Rasmus Elm chase for signing has been led by Liverpool. This attacking midfielder would also be a huge boost to their midfield and attack. Pay: 8m.

PLayers that Rodgers may want to offload:
-Maxi
-Spearing.. LOAN
-Kuyt(already sold)
-Joe Cole
-Aquilani

Rodgers has insisted that Luis Suarez WILL NOT BE SOLD!

Thats all I have heard and read:)(20)(12)Rumours go round Liverpool all of the time, normally delivered with the rock solid confidence of someone "in the know".

And then they don't happen.

To be honest, it's one of the things I miss.Dont people read the news cole is getting a chance lille wanted him n there president said hes staying at liverpool im not a liverpool fan btwJoe Cole will not be leaving Anfield. He is highly rated by Rodgers, see's his as a free alternative to Downing and as his transfer budget is limited (Compared to King Kenny) he doesn't wish to waste any in this area.He said joe cole is part of his plansThe manager has already stated that Cole and Aquilani will be given a chance to impress. So telling prokies.

Rhodes/Beckford not enough quality for the prem.

Norway defensive midfielder Alexandra Tettey is thought to be on the plane to England after impressjng against England teams interested are Sunderland,Fulham and Southampton(5)(1)That would be a good signing. I thought he looked pretty good against us.Tettey was very good against England showing a superb range of passing as well as a grit while defending. Would be a decent replacement for Dickson Etuhu.

Craig Bellamy is getting on a plane to see the Malaysian owners of Cardiff City (before or after Olympics). He has been spotted around the Vale hotel and around the CCFC board members (like Alan Whiteley). He wants to leave Liverpool as he has personal issues with the new gaffer Brendan Rodgers.(19)(20)Probably just seeing his family and catching up with friends from cardiff city board. Would be great to see bellers back!Hope your right palAll believable, but could be the fact that he still has friends within ccfc, and he back in cardiff simply because he still lives here! does he have personal issues with a former swansea boss? possibilly! but hes professional enough to realise that if there were issues when rodgers was at swansea it was simply that! 2 rival teams and 2 men passionate about each others clubs!Nonsense, Bellers has no problem with Rodgers but he knows that he might not be in his plans and can accept that.

He's in talks with West Brom about a 1 season deal, and the incoming boss is happy to have Bellamy join.Yes it is believable, i dont think so probably because of his family but i hope he will come back, i dont think bellers will have a problem with rodgers after all he plays in a Wales team that have a few swansea players in it, he might give a bit of banter but he hasnt kicked off with any of them.How are we the next pompy do you read that the investment secures the club financally for yearsWell there is no guarantee that we will be able to make a deal with the langston corp

Steve Clarke will be appointed as West Brom boss in the next 48 hours and will bring Raheem Sterling on loan to The Hawthorns.(13)(6)Better than the German ! We need a coach not a manager cos Ashworth does the rest. He is a well respected coach. Forget Liverpool, he probably wasn't allowed to coach under Dalglish. Gotta be betta than RangnickExcuse me, but isn't this the same coach that was instrumental in Chelsea winning 2 Championships? The same coach that helped a poor Liverpool team to the 3rd meanest defence in the league and 2 major cup finals? Yeah ... he sounds really poor ... success ? No thanks !? What we need is a is someone who's never worked in England and has stress related issues ... Anyone who thinks he's a bad hire knows absolutely nothing about football.Would not read too much into this, Dan Ashworth is on holiday and Jeremy Peace has just returned,Steve Clarke left Anfield yesterday,If it takes Albion 6 weeks to finally get a nod from the German guy ,how is it they can set up Clarkes appointment in a matter of hours ? Nope this is speculation,the new guy will be a
Mr Santa Claus from the Lapland league and he will take up his new appointment once his rounds are finished on December 25th 2012,also he will be on a 12 month rolling contract that terminates 24th december2013 that will allow him to go back to his duties in Lapland in case it all goes t$ts up .Why has Clarke "gotta be better" than Rangnick?

 


07 Jun 2012 10:27:44

metro(9)(20)You can't afford himCant see itYeah heard this too. he is unhappy with the changes made at the hawthorns and his contract wont let him to go another club. he wants to go to championship favourites charlton.What is it with Charlton fans?Im a charlton fan and i dont think this is true, do you have the link?What changes at the Hawthorns ? no one including the chairman knows what the hell,s going on.Would be an outstanding signing but why would he come to us?"What is it with Charlton fans?"

Yeah they want to sign players for Gods sake, I mean what is it with them."What is it with Charlton fans?"

what is it about us? obviously we are excited to be back in the championship, and just love trying to find people who could potentially sign for us. and whoever said we cant afford him, we're not poor, we've got money!

 


07 Jun 2012 10:15:26
James Ward-Prowse will join Burnley today on season loan(8)(9)Why would we want some seventeen year old who has not played a single league game for Southampton, he's more likely to go out on loan somewhere he will play week in week out at burnley he will not.Is there any evidence or just a hunch?I can't see that happening. We already have a couple of talented young midfielders, who should be given a chance to shine and not some young loanee.Very talented could break into burnleys first team

Chris Hughton will make Curtis Davies his No. 1 transfer target to kick off his summer spending when he is named Norwich City boss

Source: The Daily Mail(18)(7)That would sort our deffence outDont bank on it, he is at best a decent championship defender, you should be looking at a better quality defender to allow you to kick on in the premiership,especially in your second season,really cannot see davies doing anything to improve your defence,i would hope to set my sights higher if i were a NCFC fan.Do you even know what you are talking about? Take for example:

1) Whitbread - did brilliantly for us this season, we signed him and he played Championship football for 1 season for Norwich, before adapting successfully to the Premier League. Proven.

2) Ayala. Wasn't good enough for Liverpool supposedly, played in the Championship on loan at Hull and Derby. Didn't play for large portions of last season because of injury, but on the times that he did appear, he was commended on his performances. Still very young, one for the future no doubt.

3) Ryan Bennett. Signed from Peterborough in January, having played Championship football. Very young, but has so much potential, assured and composed for such an age, star quality no doubt. Brilliant signing for just 3m.

Therefore, a player who was in the Championship Team of the Year, would definitely improve our defence, and no doubt would be available more often that Whitbread who was injured often!

McNally sign him up!

Besides, even our convertee, R.Martin (usually plays RB), is pretty damn good at CB nowdays.Whitbread has left on a free (no, I don't know why either), Ayala can't string more than 3 games together, and Ward is too slow for Prem. Can see Martin and Bennett being a decent pairing, but they do lack that aerial dominance that we need against some teams. Davies would be a decent squad addition, but I would rather be looking at Dann or Johnson from the relegated teams if we could get them. And Fletcher if we need to replace Holt.Norwich cant afford fletcher's 4m price tag. staying at wolves as he believes is a bigger club with better supportersGood idea that taking defenders who were conceding lot's last season and have a losing mentality when we could sign Davies from a club with a great defensive record and a winning mentality

Stoke will be watching the Liverpool Lucas situation VERY closely. Lucas could well be out of favour with Rogers as he may find it hard to regain his first team position after coming back from injury. Stoke's new central partnership for the 2012/13 season could well be Palacios and Lucas. {Ed025's Note - in your dreams..(8)(16)Is this the same Lucas that all Liverpool fans were saying was their player of the season had it not been for injuries? No offence, but if Lucas did become available due to change in manager, im sure higher calibre clubs would be on the radar...

Right on ed!Im a stoke fan and i know we wont get lucas, at the moment hes just too good, but we are an up and coming club, no chance of getting him. cant wait to see all the losers come on here and start slagging stoke off thoughStoke tried to sign Lucas when Liverpool fans were on his back ......agree with the above though, no chance now. Have heard that they are keen on Bellamy again though.Its speculatory name dropping by our local paper as to who'd fit our team, simple as...
Same article says Paul Robinson and Ryan Nelsen would also fit our team but I don't notice there names ending up on here and TribalFootball etc...Lucas wud get in any team in the world, shud we be deluded enough to want rid (dream on) he wud hav the pick of the lot, so no disrespect to stoke who i rate, shift targetI would of said Crouch was too good for us but we signed him. We need a couple of higher calibre players to bring this club to better places

Morocco and Montpellier midfielder Younes Belhanda (France's Young Player of the Year) is set to complete the move to the lane in the next few days. The transfer fee is rumoured to be in the region of £2.5million. After the recent loss in the play-off final, Kevin McCabe decided a fresh investment was what was needed, and has issued a formal statement saying that he is happy to see his money spent on a worthwhile cause. Good investment methinks?(3)(14)Absolutely not, he is worth WELL over 2.5million,HA this is the stupidest thing i've ever heard, if this happens i'll buy you your season ticket for the next ten yearsOf course the French player of the year is going to Sheffield United, what are you smoking. He's being linked with some of Europe's top clubs, and is worth a lot more than 2.5 millionMore like 25mil

Jay Rod looks set to join SFC today, as gutted as i am it looks like we have a good deal with 6.5m in full plus Richard Chaplow

Thanks Jay and good luck(19)(11)Il be gutted if Chaplow is part of the deal as the guy is a fantastic player and team member can't wait to see jay rod in a saints shirtWont get chaplow !Not sure on the Chaplow part. Know he's on holiday with the family in the Algarve. And previously stated he wanted to stay at SaintsRichard Chaplow is not part of the deal. Been confirmed by the player.It's a straight up 6.75M Cash no player involved :)The deal is cash only. Burnley are getting more than enough cash to buy replacements.

Crawley Town are to announce the signing of Alan Connell from Swindon next week after Paolo told him he is surplus to requirements. the fee is in the region of 150k(14)(10)He was Swindon`s best striker last season till Benson came and he was their joint top scorer. Don`t know which newspapers you`ve been readingDoubt it, not league 1 standardNot div 1 quality and not worth 150kTake their hand off, he's too lightweight & didn't have the pace or skill to make up for it. Decent eye for goal though & put's in a shiftDidn't look so lightweight when he played Wigan in the cup and he played a big part in Swindons promotion this season.Worth every penny of 150k and a lot more. Goals/games ratio is amazing. Some people have not got a clue.I would drive him there for 150k, hard worker but hasn't got the ability for League 1. If he was good enough he would have been a regular starter last year, good impact sub at best!I don't think he is league 1 standard. We picked him up on a free transfer after he was bombed out of Bournemouth and he did ok here but he is hardly prolific. Think his record was a goal every 10 games for Bournemouth

Ipswich are set to sign Stephen Quinn and Paul Taylor next week(12)(9)Neither will sign. Quinn being considered by Coventry and he has said he would prefer to go to Coventry as got better History.Ha ha ha ha...better history? Lol that's given me a right laugh!Previous poster, that's such a joke! Ipswich have an extraordinary history and had managers like sir Alf and sir Bobby. Plus if Quinn had the opportunity to go up a division to the championship, then why would he decide to stay in league 1?Itfc have a far better history and produced two of the finest english managers of all time , he off to itfc , fee agreedBetter history !Coventry better history than Ipswich? - can't recall them winning the uefa cup or supplying 2 england managers - but they did win the FA Cup (oh but so did Ipswich). Still I am surethat the lure of remaining in League 1 will swing things in Cov's favour!I've heard the Coventry rumour too only that he says it's not the history but the fact that it's ambitious with it's approach for the future whereas Ipswich aren't.Ha...this Coventry joker is hilarious! I couldn't care less if he does go to you but to say you are more ambitious and have plans for future...LOL. whatever mate. Bovvered?!And whos the one in league one

paul jewell expected to tie up neil harris and dele adebola transfer to ipswich this week(4)(22)Highly doubt either of these are happening.I dont think so mate get your fact straightNothing is happening at town for a couple of weeks at least so go take your bull elsewhere make stuff up about Norwich like chris houghton is our guardian angel as he takes norwich to new LOW levels ha he is as useless as a chocolate radiatorAnd jewell is a glass hammer 2years in championship hughton walked the title an made play offs jewell would just like to finish in top half but as we all know that hasnt happened for decadesYou budgies make me laugh....... Did you not see the squads he had with both n'castle and birmingham! To be honest it was embaressing he didn't get them up this year! As for Paul jewell he has a better record then a lot of other managers at taking teams to the prem and keeping them there!I don't think ipswich fans should lament Norwich. They are currently doing a LOT better than them and with hughton in place look safe for next season as he will keep them there with the budget he's been given of c. 16m. Coming from Celtic fan so no bias.

Nottingham forest will confirm that they have been brought by mega rich billionaire fawaz al-hawasi in the next 24hrs. Al-hawasi will soon get to work by sacking steve cotterill and appointing neil warknock as manager. Warnock will be given a large.transfer kitty to get forest promotion. From what I hear, paddy kenny and robert snodgrass will be his 1st signings...(23)(41)Not that large as the fair play rules will only allow 5 million plus sales... And for the players they have it won't be much in sales, and they would need 20 million minimum to look even a tiny bit better'...from what you hear...'

and where abouts did you hear this?You might have money but who wud want to go to nottingham forest!You can only use money that you make and seeing as you have been left in massive debt you at the moment can only spend what you sell.You wish!!Yes fair play rules state the 5 mil spend plus sales, but it also states on revenue coming into the club, ie sponsorships etc. At the moment forest sponser deals have expired. A loop hole in the fair play rules is the re naming of the ground which will be exploited (like at leicester). But I have on good authority that the new owner to be is planning on building a new ground! If all goes to plan it looks like a very bright future at forest.Al-hawasi not even been in touch with Forest owners, but Cotterill intrested in Krystian Pearce - Malony swop deal.Also ffp rules don't come into play untill 2013/14 season so forest can still get out of this league before thenWait till friday buddy doughty family love forest their is no debtAnother rumour that has no substance, there is no way they would sack Cotterall and replace him with Warnock.

Reading have enquired about taking young Raheem Sterling on a season long loan. Reading are hoping that they will be able to build a link between the two clubs especially since Ex-Reading boss Brendan Rodgers left Reading on good terms despite being fired. There will be no end of season fee and a call back clause has been included. Raheem Sterling is not in Rodgers immediate plans Brendan is hoping to utilise Readings reputation of getting the best out of young players. Long and Doyle being the main examples.(18)(12)Rodgers has said that all his players are to be given an equal chance, so this is garbage.That does not garbage this. Raheem Sterling is a big part of his long term plans, but he doesn't feel he is ready yet. Rodgers is set to do what all Premier League clubs do with their best young talent who are not yet ready for the chance to shine consistently and loan them to a lower club. Cleverely for United and Miyachi for Arsenal are a prime example of clubs doing it.You'd be surprised with Rodgers and Reading. He's good terms with McDermott and Madejski but don't expect any favours whilst Nigel Howe is still at the club.Dear Ed, I posted this and Rodgers has turned down the offer. He wants to keep Raheem Sterling around at the club after he impressed in training and Rodgers now wants to drill his passing philosophy into him as he feels Sterling can flourish at Anfield.

Expect no more from this front.

Why play in Div 1 when he could play in the Championship!Zoko is out of contract. Left Carlisle because he wants to play at a higher level so I dunno why he'd be going to Preston...

Former dundee united centre half garry kenneth has been offered contracts from aberdeen , hearts , hibs , sheffield united , blackburn,coventry with bristol city , sheffield wed , leeds and blackpool along with a host of unnamed turkish clubs all interested . overheard a conversation with his agent today at the landmark hotel in dundee .
kenneth has also been working on his fitness running the sidlaw mountains and lots of long hours in the gym in order to secure himself a deal as he had a few niggling injuries which stopped him from being at full fitness and would prefer sorting it out sooner rather than later for family reasons(5)(13)Gary Kenneth is the worst center half to ever have played proffesional football so there is no chance any of the above have offered him a contract..! He would be lucky to get a game for Junior side Lochee United haha..!Where have you been for the past month? Newcastle Utd have been sniffing around for weeks!

Bigirimana is a decent young player, but he is still very young (only just 18) and would benefit from at least another year in the first team at Coventry City...

However, I am sure that SISU (Cov's owners) will accept anything above 500k... SISU are notoriously poor at valuing players... They have sold several key players at a fraction of their true value. In my opinion Bigirimana would be worth ten times as much if they held onto him for a couple of seasons!Ian Black of Hearts is out of contract and has been offered a few deals by various English Championship clubs including Bristol City, Derby and Shef Wed so far. He's going to talk next week when back from his hols.
Although a bit of a hot head he has been outstanding 2nd half of the season for hearts and a Scotland cap would be no surprise. Whoever gets him have got a classy player similar to Barry Ferguson. There were rumours he was going to Rangers but not true, I know his family.Would do a job for hearts , him and webster at the back were solid for united think he is off down south though game there will suit him more i feel

Who would you rather up top if we do sign a striker this window? De Jong or Giroud? For me Giroud all day! The daily mail is also reporting QPR have come in with a bid (LOL) but more importantly there saying he has a £12.8million pounds release clause, Surely we should make a move for him. Class Striker! {Ed015's Note - Up top for whom, dear boy?}(4)(1)Reading or saints fan n btw its a 50 million pound release clauseEd - qpr have reportedly bid for him


Baggy boyNah mate its a 12.8mil clause montpellier president said he is worth 50milEh no its a 12.8m release clause. that ridiculous 50m figure is what club chairman rates him at.Giroud at QPR would be good but don't think he will move since Montpellier are in champions league next year

Derby county

we have released 12 players and 7 transfer listed and someone said yesterday we are only getting a striker.

Rubbish the only transfer nigel has come out to speak of is Michael Jacobs who is a winger and with the amount of interviews hes done on him he clearly wants him badly.

These are Derbys targets

Lb
Paul dixon or Joe mattock or Aidy White

Cb
Krystian Pearce or Karleigh Osbourne

Cm
Fegor Ogude
Andrew tutte or Ashley westwood


Winger
Michael jacobs
Daniel Powell or Jon Taylor

Striker
Johnny Russell
Will grigg or Just using youth players

This is There targets no point disagreeing
i have not said we are getting messi.These players are well into the budget nigel has been given and he has mentioned these before.I only know that Official contact has been made with Michael Jacobs and Krystian Pearce.

I repeat Derby are Not getting Mustapha
Carayole it was Middlesborough who were the Unnamed Bidder.John Daly has been decided agianst due to his Lack of experience outside of the Spl for his age.
The other player Havard Nielsen from Norway is one of the Most Exciting Talents in norway so Derby wont be getting him whilst still in the championship.

Fegor Ogude for those who disagree about it.He has been sitting on the bench
for 3/4 of the season not because hes not good enough but because the team wanted let youngsters play a bigger part
in a interview that is easily found on the Norway football forum he had said he wants to leave if he was to have another season of being left out so Valerenga fc said they couldnt promise him that and transfer listed him offering for 500k.As many of you football fans probally play Fifa and have seen his stats and think he is amazing the stats are way overated he got that because he scored a hatrick in a
9-0 thrashing agianst a lower league Norwegian side.Nigel feels that derby are lacking a strong Anchor man and had Enquire about Nottingham Forests Guy Moussi but it was turned down so when they had a scouting trip in norway which im led to believe was for academy players.
As some derby fans no about Mat Morch
They were told by football experts over there of Ogudes situatuion of him being unhappy.Anyone saying he wont get a work permit he has already got one he has played in norway for 6 years and is classed as a Norwegian Citzen therefore can travel anywhere in The Eu.

Due to the improvement made this
season with the highest finish under
Nigel.The Board have offered 1.8 million
before transfer sales and with 6 first
team players listed you should see that
rise to 4 million but Nigel dosent want
spend anywhere near all of that but
to get suitable targets which still
allows him to introduce youth.

If anyone knows of any other players/targets reply or you care to disagree reply.(6)(21)

George Boyd to sign for Charlton Athletic on a free as his contract has expired, sources from other fans say he has signed a pre-contract so that means on the 1st of July he'll be officially ours and no one can get him, watch this space!!(3)(28)He has one year left on his contract and the top championship clubs are looking at him, so wrong and why would he?Really need to brush up on players Boyd still has a year left on his contract get your cheque book out if you want him he was going three years ago but DMac got him to stay expect negotiations in Portugal again ....As previously stated Boyd has a year left on his contract you plank. Don't you just love people who haven't got a clue!Sorry, I know he's ex-charlton but, he's just not good enough.

Who are 'top' championship sides in the closed season I wonder?He's is going to charlton this guy had got it wrong but he IS coming to us for 300k-650k he wants to come back to London and he supports palace so he'll be back home"why would he?"

LOL where to start! We are a club that are on the up again and Peterborough are heading in the opposite direction. We have more money, bigger fan base, better stadium and a better team. It's his home club one taught him his trade.

Yeah why would he!To the Charlton fan,
I support Wednesday and everyone one here is.saying were both carp clubs and will be relegated. They think every player wants to go with them as most are ipswich fans they are is a stay on championship side wi no ambition just like most of them. I know we will do well next season and good luck to your too.I was at the away game, impressed with the stadium (My first visit), congrats to you!Ditto Wednesday fan, top 2 is taken already before the season has started, and I thnk you know how I'm putting in the top two :)))))) CAFC SWFCHe's not good enough for us, no offence to him but i've seen him play a few times. all i know is that he wants out of p'boro.

Preston have offered francois zoko a two-year contract to join the revolution .(12)(14)Your correct. He was seen at Deepdale on MondayNo they have not on the carlisle web site zoke wants to play at an higher levelJust because he may want to stay at Carlisle or even move somewhere else..... that wouldn't prevent Preston from offering him a contract, would it?If he wants to play at s higher level than Carlisle he could go to Macc.

Steve Clarke to be unveiled as the new West Brom head coach by the weekend. A good move by the Baggies me thinks.....just a few player issues to sort out(21)(9)I don't. He contributed to one of Liverpools worst season positions in ages - he was not much good for Zola either as I recall. Clearly scraping the barrel in my opinion coz they cannot think of anyone else. Hughton not coming because of compensation payment. I would'nt be surprised if they had to pay for their own tracksuit when they take the job. Sorry, but this is madnessTotally agree with these comments Surely to god there is somebody out there. It really is a gamble on someone who has never managed before. Not happyThis has got disaster written all over it. I would like to see us approach Hughton and pay the compensation fee. It has to be worth it surely?Totally agree , Downing said we were to sign a big name, what a load of tripe that statement turned out, we missed the bus on managers now we will be left standing at the bus stop when the transfer window opens,what kind of message does this send out to prospective players or trying to get new fans to the club,once more the fans have been shafted by Peace just to appease his pension pot,if this does turn out to be true ,I hope all the happy clappers at the Hawthorns who have supported Peace then go on to sing his name out as Albion go the same way as the Wolves,no ambition....Peace..OUT.WON'T be impressed with this appointment of it happens! No managerial experience, and as the person above stated, was part of a Liverpool set up during a very very poor couple of seasons by their standards! And players like Olsson and mulumbu definitely won't want to stay unless a 'name' is brought in....oh well....down the prem we slip

Baggy boyA great decision... To go DOWN ffsI take it all with a pinch of salt until an anouncement of the new manager comes out on the official site! Has Rangnick actually said he doesn't want the job as he was given til friday to make his choice. Ranieri was odds on favourite the other week and that was never going to happen. I'd be surprised if SC got the job!Absolutely pathetic! We're a top 10 club who want to push on and be a force to reckon with. Here more than ever the board needed to prove they had ambition and bring in a proven, quality and respected manager. Not only for the team to push on but also to retain some key players by proving we're going somewhere. So so stupid, Peace is looking for parachute payments in my opinion. Absolutely ridiculous! It's taken Norwich a number of days to get a manager, we've been waiting for months!!I think your forgetting that he had great success at Chelsea with 2 titles, 1 fa cup and then 2 league cups, yeh he has absolutely no experience.....

Watford Rumours:


-Watford to sign Shrewsbury Town striker James Collins for a fee of £400k, The Irish striker is away on international duty but will sign for the Hornets when he returns.


-Watford hope to sign QPR duo Heidar Helguson and Tommy Smith on a season-long loan. The Hornets hope to have their former legends back in august.(14)(19)There was a rumour chris iwlumo might sign for us at afc bournemouth was written on here is there anychance of that happeningYour source then?Helguson and Smith are not returning to Watford fact! Now will all deluded Watford fans, which seems to be the majority just get over it! They are gone and arent returning!Why would qpr want to keep helguson and smith? Their good players but they have cisse,zamora etc upfront and smith hasnt played in ages"They're gone and aren't returning". Even if they're not coming back this window I'd say there's a good chance that Smith will come back to us.Don't claim it's the majority of fans. This page is fundamentally flawed in accuracy because the more extreme views of fans get the majority of page space - because it's news! Nobody gets excited about some completely unknown youth player signing onto the reserve team, and yet that is much more common! I personally can't see Helguson ever coming back again - perhaps Tommy Smith in a few more years but not in the next few months. To be honest, I reckon both the two players and Watford have just moved on since those days - looking to sign new players, and, of course, looking to improve through their fantastic youth academy.

Imagine he will be a 12 goal a season man of that. Butterfield needs to make a decision and either stay or go.

New Sydney FC Manager (Tony Popovic) wants to raid his old club Crystal Palace FC for Aussie Mile Jedinak to be his midfield general(3)(17)It's the middle of the A league season mate, don't think the aussie transfer window is currently open.A league season just finished...Popovic is Western Sydney Manager not Sydney FC. Don't see Jedinak coming home to either team.Firstly he's the manager of the new Western Sydney A-League franchise, not Sydney FC. Sydney FC are now managed by ex Tottenham and Norwich player Ian Crook.
Secondly as the new franchise is being owned and run by the actual league I doubt they'd fork out the money to cover Jedinak's wages while the clubs in its infancy, even though he may get a few more people through the gates.
And lastly why on earth would he give up a spot in a good championship team to drop back quite a few levels to the A-League, it's just not going to happen!

Notts County are keen to sign former Sunderland striker Oumare Tounkara. The frontman has spent the last two seasons on loan at Oldham.(12)(6)Doubt it he will sign a one year deal with oldham when he returns from holiday next weekWe notts county dont want rubbish strikers.No, but you're willing to pay them 4.5k, PER WEEK!Quite right youve got enough all readyOldham will sign tounkara and former Sunderland team mate andy Reid in coming weeksAgreed, we need a striker that could do well for us not strikers to sit on the bench (mike grella) forte wouldnt be bad but he did only have one good game and that was against charltonIs that the same Andy Reid that plays for Nottingham Forest?

Jan Vertonghen to Arsenal?

Arsenal are planning a double Dutch swoop for Ajax pair Jan Vertonghen and Maarten Stekelenburg in the summer.(12)(41)Maarten Stekelenburg plays for RomaApart from the fact Vertonghen has stated today he expects to be moving to Spurs (The Independent) I'm sure this is a solid rumour ;-)Becuase arsenal are known for spending money - vertoghen 8 million and stekelenberg cost roma like 20 milion there not going to let him go cheapStekelenburg hasnt been at roma long so he wont be going and us spurs fans are very happy that we are close to signing Vertonghen.so stop dreaming.another ad gooner on ere.place is full of them ..u lot spend less then us and thats saying sumthingDouble dutch swoop?
If you mean the dutch league, Stekelenburg plays in Italy and if you mean nationality, Vertonghen is Belgian.Being an Arsenal fan i find it hilarious that Spurs fans can even begin saying anything negative towards us as we all know you are the greatest Buyers of all time NOT i mean you have amassed a great number of foreign imports just as many as us over the years but have ZILCH and i mean ZILCH Prem Titles to show for it our transfer policy works ie VIERA PIRES HENRY WILTORD LAUREN EDU FLAMINI RVP OVERMARS PETIT the list goes on compared to your down and out Foreign signings what im trying to say is stop chatting pure and utter rubbish about the way we spend our cash even our current so called flops dealt with your shambles of a side you can have Vertonghen keep Ade2leftfeetbayor and still you will be left with egg on your faces .Stekelenberg plays for Roma, and Roma didnt pay 20 Million for him they paid 5 MillionWhy on earth would you go for Stekelenberg? It's not as if you need to replace your keeper is it?Somebody clearly hasn't got their facts right!!
FAIL!

Bradford will follow up the signing of Rory McArdle by signing Liam Ridehalgh on a free from Huddersfield and Tom Barkhuizen from Blackpool on a season long loan deal with a view to a permanent move.(9)(12)Barkhuisen highly rated at Blackpool and will be loaned to someone bigger than Bradford, most likely a League 1 club if he is loaned out, he was firing goals all over last season for Hereford in league 2.Ridehalgh isnt on a freeRidehalgh still under contract with Huddersfield so a fee would be required.Huddersfield might just want him off their pay roll if Grayson doesn't see a role for him next season.

Unlikely to be earning a huge amount (in footballer's terms) but in the new era of salary caps it all counts.

He has been out on loan and could probably be loaned out again for the remainder of his contract but if there is a club prepared to offer him a longer term contract now it would be doing right for the player as well as removing his salary cost from the equation.Ridehalgh is under 23 so even if he was on a free it would go to a tribunalSomeone bigger than bradford ??
Blackpool have some room to talk.If it wasnt for the away fans attending games at blackpool with good support city would have far bigger attaendances than blackpool.:) wont be long before we are back up where we belong.!Ridehalgh wont go on a free, hes still under contract and is under 23years oldOur away stand is 1800 and didn't sell out most games last season! Bradford are the example of how not to run a football club.

James Chambers and Chris Hackett are rumoured to be in talks with league one side Walsall

Walsall goalkeeper James Walker is rumoured to be leaving the league one side due to him not wanting to move back to the midlands from Essex which is part of his new contract offer

Former Man City Goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen is being linked with the Saddlers to be Walkers replacement(6)(2)Hackett ? not very good should suit a relegation battle !! must be trueDid you see what Gunnar Nielsen was like at tranmere. Thats why he was released by man city!Chris hackett going to bradford mate !Hasnt walker alrady said hes staying hmm check ur facts btw im not a walsall fanWalker said he wanted to stay at Walsall before he was offered a contract, but at the moment he lives in Essex and was allowed to travel up to the midlands for matches/ training

Adam johnson will be a Newcastle player next season,he is gutted about the euros and wants to join a side where he will be a regular(17)(35)That would be good for everyone.
Jonas hasnt got the pace to break forward every game but he will be a very good defensive midfielder.Then Johnson should be able to show off his tricks and show man city what they have lost great signing.Sorry to say but its well known that his family are saying him and his agent are talking to sunderland and the deal is close to being agreed, a loan with a view to buy, sorry to burst your bubble SGBSTypical SMB his "family are saying him" makes no sense whats so ever. and its a well known fact tht he was born in sunderland yes but he grew up supporting newcastle so sorry to burst your bubbleUnless either club are prepared to stump up 15 millin, he isn't going anywhere - forget loan to buy, City will only sell.

Nigel Adkins is to attend a select few Euro 2012 matches and will be in Ukraine Monday, not to watch England in Donetsk, but Ukraine vs Sweden in Kiev. Specifically to watch Ola Toivonen, but you would assume all managers go out there with an open mind and could notice players they hadn't intended to scout.(12)(4)If that is true, I suspect there could be some major announcements from Saints before the weekend.

yeovil are chasing torquay utds winger Danny Stevens. johnson failed to sign him when he was manager at peterbrough, and has always been an admirer, a formal bid hasnt been made yet, but watch this space(2)(5)Yeovil don't have money to spend so they won't be putting any bids in for any players!!I heard this story 3 days ago in the harold express in torbayIncorrect... Yeovil DO have money to spend... it is by no means a substantial amount, but certainly enough to bring in two or three contracted players due to successive years of profit... and as we all know, GJ cant work without a little cash along the way so dont rule it out... but Danny Stevens is not somebody i would expect to join us... purchased players may include Nathan Smith though

West Ham interested in David Stockdale

West Ham have been linked with a move for Fulham keeper David Stockdale.

With Robert Green’s future at Upton Park still uncertain as he out of contract, manager Sam Allardyce may be in the market for another stopper and it has been suggested Stockdale may be an option.

The 26-year-old has been unable to dislodge Mark Schwarzer as the number one at Craven Cottage but the Hammers may have to pay as much as £5m for his services.
LiamsBiz(10)(10)No chance will Stockdale leave Fulham,Stockdale will not leave Fulham permanently.

Tim Cahill to Al Nasr?

Everton midfielder Tim Cahill is not ruling out a move to the Middle East amid speculation linking him with Saudi Arabian giants Al Nasr.

The Australian is reportedly a key target for the club this summer, with reports suggesting he could earn up to £2.5million for one season if he completed a move.

Cahill has played numerous times in the Middle East while representing his country and the 32-year-old, who is contracted at Goodison Park until 2014, has made no secret of his admiration for the region.

"I know what the experience is like. I have lived and breathed it," he told AAP.

"I have played in two Asia Cups and I have got great connections with a lot of important people overseas.

"I come on holiday in the Middle East a lot and I embrace the weather and the culture.''
LiamsBiz(11)(10)2.5 million is less than 50 grand a week which he already earns at everton!Didn't he reject an offer from the middle eastTim cahill is our highest paid player on 80,000 a week

Newcastle interested in Douglas

Reports have emerged that Newcastle United are actively discussing a move for FC Twente defender Douglas.

The Evening Chronicle says United’s overwhelming priority is to sign a centre-back this summer, and there has already been dialogue about FC Twente defender Douglas.

The Brazilian-born defender has a Dutch passport and has been on Newcastle’s radar for some time.

Mike Williamson and Fabricio Coloccini have both performed well in the majority of fixtures since Steven Taylor’s Achilles injury, but away games at Fulham and Spurs have increased the theory that United need more back-up for the pair.

West Brom will await Gus Poyets weekend return from family Holiday in Uruquay to open talks. With Swansea and probably Birmingham wanting a new manager,The baggies have asked Brighton for permission to speak to their man as soon as possible.(2)(16)Dont want poyet. huge step backwards.....{Big G Voice} looks like all of us Brighton fans have got to wait now until Gus is back, Spoken to West Brom,Swansea, Birmingham and uncle tom cobblies and all before we know whats going to happen and make a signing.
We still need a goalkeeper, central defender,left and right fullbacks, one or two central midfielders depending on Birdcutt,plus at least two strikers Hope there are still some good players left.Both Eck and Mick mcarthy have houses close to the baggies. maybe paul jewell or phill brown. those are the type of managers that you want to be looking at....A STEP BACKWARDS?...you baggies have one good season in the prem and you start saying stupid things like that! The only reason you finished so high is because those underneath were so damn poor. Have u seen Poyets style of play or know anything about his football philosophy? U could do alot worse. Don't forget Rdm got a champions league medal because he inherited good players, with the poor personnel he had at WBA he was always going to get the tintac. You don't deserve a good manager!To the poster talking about WBA like he actually has a brain. It wasnt really the players playing badly that got rdm the sack Hence why when hodgson changed the tactics with the same players we picked up and finishes 11th and then 10th so yeah poyet would be a step back from the England manager just sayingWow looks like a Brighton fan fell out of his pram.... WBA have had 2 consecutive good seasons and unless I'm mistaken have spent a number of years in the Premiership. Brighton have had how many years in the top flight?? How often do Championship managers make anything of themselves in the top flight? Why would Poyet be any different!If Poyet was any good he would have been snapped up a long time ago--Oh and Brighton would have finished in the top 6 - even Gary Megson was able to do that !2 good seasons actually !Poyet would be a huge step upAs a Brighton fan, although poyet is a very good manager, with potential to be a brilliant one, he is not ready for the prem IMO. He needs a few more seasons with us (hopefully getting promotion!).Poyet is a mediocre lower league manager who would not last 6 months in the premier league. He aint bad but he aint that good eitherLooks like Steve Clarke

This money will be spent on waged for players that are out of contract and would we willing to play for the club with names like Frank Moussa and Dave Kitson be involved. United will not replace Kevin MacDonald if he doesn't resign for united DW has been told by John Pemberton that Elliott Whitehouse if ready to make the step up to first team action along side Joe Ironside.(8)(5)Correct about Stephen Quinn, although i've been told the fee is a bit higher, 400k upfront, 750k after appearances.

Dont believe anything press say regarding fulham incoming transfers bar chadli it's all rubbish .
Dempsey will choose from psg , lile , lyon , man u n arsenal . Dembele will stay , chadli will join after his vacation n could be joined by felliw belgium kevin mirallas . They are also interested in resurecting a deal for gingac as pogrebnyak has got greedy , maxi lopez is an outside chance as is mexes from milan. Santa cruz will join qpr but taiwo will not n will instead join benfica , qpr look set to lose out on rob green but may move for spurs keeper gomez , makimwa from lazio n forlan of inter are on mark hughe's shopping list as is adam johnston. Chelsea will complete hulk deal n malouda wants to stay local but wants 1st team football which has alerted fulham n qpr as he is settled living in sw london suberb wimbledon .brentford will try to sigh bh riise from fulham n frode bodde n craig davis.(2)(12)Gingac wont sign for fuhlam, he thinks he's gods gift. He said in January he wouldn't sign for Everton because he didn't think they were a big enough club and he wouldn't even get in there side right now.Oh wombles we love youGignac was shown around last summer and was going to sign for Fulham only for Marseille to pull the plug because they were not able to finance and secure Amauri (their replacement). So plenty of chance that it could happen. Especially as the bit about Pogrebnyak is true.Being a realistic QPR fan not a chance we would get forlan or malouda, defoe would be a more likely striker as he a london boy and would prefer to stay close to home,but i like the sounds of these rumours.but how reliable is your source.Dempsey will stay in england unless psg offer thousandsThousands! thats nothing...Sorry lolLille are most likely to sign Clint Dempsey as a replacement for both Joe Cole and Eden Hazard.

Hughton to be named Norwich manager within the next 48 hours...

His plans are to bring in 6 or 7 new players to replace the players likely to leave, and the ones who have already been released.

Possible signings are; Chris Gunter (Nottingham Forest), Curtis Davies (Birmingham), Luke Chambers (Nottingham Forest, Danny Rose (Spurs), Danny Guthrie (Free Agent), Robert Snodgrass (Leeds), Mohammed Abdellaoue (Hannover), John Guidetti (Man City - Loan).

Hughton may be the key factor in signing Danny Guthrie on a free, after managing him during his time at Newcastle.(20)(11)All are fairly realistic.The only likely 2 are guthurie and davis. These are all the names shouted out when Lambert was in charge. Good luck too him at aston villa and he's welcome to snodgrassAll may be realistic, but they are the same names that people kept banging on about while Lambert was manager. Hughton will have his own targets. The only names on that list not heavily linked before are Danny Rose and Guthrie. Sounds very much like recycling and guess work to me....All good signings! Wreaks of Lambert type players! Board need to back him or it could be a tough season!!Not Snodgrass, come on, he's not good enough for the premier leagueThey wont back him though. All they want is to stay out of debt.

Watford rumoured to have placed a £850,000 bid for reading's Simon Church.
Reading have been rumoured to come back with an improved bid for mariappa. cash + Joseph Mills(13)(16)Watford have not got the finances to spend that on one playerNo wat would watford bid over 500,000 for one player are you kidding me!850 000 for church, Nick Hammond works his magic again
MrRfcWhy cant we just offer 1.5m, Church and Joseph Mills for Mariappa?Thank god he's a terrible striker but he's rated 2m so good luck with 850kYes Reading good luck with 850k! Fat chance you'll ever get that.....yet alone 2m!....Simon Church is not a terrible striker. He's a good finisher, and has pace and strength. He will get better with more work on his play outside the box, and the extra confidence that a consistent run of games would bring.Watford don't have that much money they will only buy him if we get MariappaChurch is a good player but he never plays and I think he's got a good future but we won't sell him we want at least 1 million

Preston north end are currently in talks with free
Agent right back Cristian Ribiero and are ready to offer
Him a two-year contract.(14)(9)I hope not. As much as we are desperate for a right-back we don't need one who has played only 25 games in 6 years! He'll spend his entire contract sitting in the stands, injured and draining what little money PNE have left.Relax its just a rumourNoo come on Alan Knill we need this man!Reason for lack of games was cruciate injury, bc fans divided over loosing him. Plenty of clubs interestedSounds like he should be in the barca team with a name like thatMark roberts i think you mean

GK Phil Smith

LB Andrew Taylor or Warren Cummings

CB Nathan Clarke
CB AN Other

LM James McEverley
CM Sam Togwell

CF Ben May
CF Ryan Donaldson

Freddy Eastwood rumours are not true(11)(8)Hope none of these are true!Weale, clarke, and mcecerley are decent. the others would be rubbish signingsWhere have you got these Yeovil targets from?Andrew Taylor isnt a free agent and he's decent?!Someone has obviously gone on to the PFA list and listed those who are out of contract!Isn't that basically what GJ will be doing - searching for free agents

 


06 Jun 2012 12:40:30
Swindon Town FC - All of the rumours on here regards to Swindon are rubbish, apart from 1 Williams will be unveiled when he officialy leaves Yeovil, he has already signed for Town.

Some of the outgoing rumours do have truth, Northampton Town do want Chibo and Kerouche.

Magera is wanted at the club and will be back if Bostock isnt signed, however Bostock signing will signal Magera leaving.

J smith is wanted by Barnet, as is Devera, PDC will keep Devera, but Smith will leave.

Swindon have bids in for 6 players at the moment, they are hoping to get at least 3 of them in before the players come back to pre season. PDC wants the majority of the changes done quickly to allow a full pre season and get the fitness right.(11)(2)How do you know this?J Smith wanted by TranmereAnd you know all this for certain how? You will know no more than PDC and J Wray have said.
Yes it does look like Williams will sign, there is also some truth in the club looking at Hayes...again this is in the press. Jay Mceverley looks like he may be signing...again this is common knowledge especially after his successful loan period. Everyone who follows Swindon will know they want to bring Bostock back..however this will probably be a loan deal of some kind especially in the initial stage.
PDC has said there is still a future for Magera at the club..however this has nothing to do with the Bostock situation..PDC said "I will see how he looks in training, maybe there is still something here for him...we will have to see"....
As for the rest of what you said I find it very unlikely that J Smith will go to Barnet!! I'm also sure they would love to have Devera back..he was after all their player of the season and most improved player of the season, he is however very much part of PDC's plans. As for the bids for 6 players...we all know that PDC has said he wants 7 or 8 NEW players in...he said so after signing his new 2 year extension. So if this does not include Bostock and Mceverley who were already here on loan and would not be termed as a "new" players then it doesn't take a genius to work out that means he would like another 6 players in.
However if you read his statement carefully he said "I would be delighted if I can have 80% of my targets in before pre-season, the others MAY have to wait until January".
So if all of the rumours regarding Swindon on here are lies why have you simply repeated a lot of them? Yes there is a load of nonsense rumours on here...after all the club cannot have a squad of 400 players!! but not all, I would be interested where you have got your information regarding Smith / Devera from...I think this is no more accurate than a lot of rubbish on here...in short no better than the rumours you have criticised yourself.Well my answer to you is wait and see my friend, the info has come from someone I know within the club, when I say six bids for players, that doesn't include JM, Bostock, and bids mean cash or cash + players.. The bids are in and 2 will be announced within the next two weeks if it all goes well, Williams HAS signed a pre contract its a done deal. Smith is being watched by several clubs as it has been leaked out who is available and he is one of them. You are right about Jo Jo Jo Jo Jo Jo Devera, he is a big part of PDC's plans, that doesn't mean other teams are interested. As for the 6-8 players, I read that too, but I am telling you they are identified and being negotiated on right this minute !So who are the 6-8 players?Obviously Swindon will sign someone in the next 2 weeks!! Then he can come on here and say "See...I was right"!! ....some people!!

 


06 Jun 2012 12:03:15
Brentford will unveil new signing Lloyd Sam at the end of the week.(4)(15)It could happen but I'm sure many other clubs will be higher on his radar.Sam is talking to notts county about a permanant deal, looks very likley to happen

Reading are ready to improve thier £2million offer for Watford defender Adrian Mariappa.(19)(14)Getting bored of theses posts as nothing new has been stated. Seems to be a lot of Football Manager type people writing posts which could be found on Sky Sports News. As seriously looking back over the past few weeks RFC have been linked with everyone except Ronaldo and Messi (but i am sure my this evening someones uncles pets digs cousin from Tilehurst knows someone who knows!). Mariappa could potentially be a great signing but not proven at the highest level (and NO playing for Jamaica does not count). Carlos Sanchez also is far to good for RFC and would demand far too high wages. Same quality players at RFC level will come in. Possibly a loan candidate or two lets wait and see. All I will say is in Brain McDermott we trust! Back the boys next season (closet fans) and not boo them or please dont renew so I can get a season ticket for my daughter in Y22 and not have to both move to Y19!Mariappa has played in the premier league. And is arguably one of the, if not the best centre half in the championship. He would be a great signing for reading.Mariappa has had a season in the premier league in season 07, giving him more experience than the rest of oyur team"Mariappa has had a season in the premier league in season 07, giving him more experience than the rest of of your team"

Apart from perhaps jason roberts and ian harte!Alan pardew could possibly make another bid for mariappa after failing in January, 3.5 mil bid was accepted but mapps didn't agree personal terms same with WiganLeigertwood has played in the premier league, as has Kebe, Brynjar gunnarson, Ian Harte and Jason Roberts so I think not pal. Ok the squad lacks premier league experience but they have more than Mariappa doesDon't forget Federici.Carlos Sanchez far too good for RFC? Good one buddy we've pretty much signed him.

Southampton are set to sign Bayern Munich winger Dale Jennings for around £800,000(28)(8)He has only been in the B side for a year & still has aspirations for the full team so I can't see this happening, but he is a decent young talent & fits in with Saints ethicsThat would be a really good signing. I remember watching him against us at Tranmere when he scored a peach of a goal and being really impressed. Came home and watched some of is other goals on u tube which were equally as good. young and skillful he would mould into the Saints style - not been at Bayern very long though so don't know why that might not be working out. Thought it a bit strange to go from Tranmere to Bayern at the time!Thought he had a serious injusry last year. So long as he gets through medical - would be a good signing. Not the first time we have been linked with him.

 


06 Jun 2012 10:50:24
Striker Chris Beardsley is in talks with Shrewsbury about a possible move after he left Stevenage.

JB(7)(15)We have better strikers than him?Yeah agreed, i dont think he would be a good signing, just a rumour i heard.

JBBeardsley doesn't score many goals but he can score but he can hold the ball well and pyhsically strong. He can score important goals.Beardsley is as good as any other striker in league 1.I am a Stevenage Fan.

i do not rate Beardsley at all. I think he is a shocking striker, he is a moaner, and if he was taking a penalty, he would still try and hold the ball upGornell does everything this guy does. no need for him.We don't need him

Talented youngster James Ward-Prowse will join Burnley has part of the deal that will bring Jay Rodruiguiz to the saints

source:radio solent(3)(28)Could see this as a possible loan deal but not as a transfer, as it somewhat go against Saints policy of bringing through youngsters into the first team.I can't see this happening at all, JWP embodies the youth to first team strategy that Southampton are trying to implement. Also he has recently signed a new deal and been promoted to the first team next season.5mill plus jwp would be a good dealNo way. Unless its a loan for first team experience. JWP is one of our most exciting prospects.From what i hear its a loan deal for full season and then back to us ready for the first teamCan't see this happening he is apparently a midfielder and we already have Hewitt and Howieson who are on the brink of breaking into the burnley first team and themselves are exciting talents.If its true then i hope its just a season long loan. would much rather they take hammond or chaplowNo chance. Maybe a loan, but permanent, no. Dodd has said that, for his age, he rates him higher than both Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain.Yeah and Man city and man utd have been to watch him play so he probs more gonna e bigger than these Burnley lot

Huddersfield :- Signings of Gai Assulin and Giles Barnes are set to be complete by the end of the week. To counteract the offensive manner, grayson is set to move for Miles Addison, for much needed hight in cm as competition for johnson and to cover at CB if needed(8)(10)You aren't getting assulin! He is either going to Brighton or to GermanyGai was seen seen withe glyn snodin down at the galpharm on friday evening. Snodin was present as simon grayson was away on a long weekend break. Nigel Clibbens, Chief exec, was also present (car was in the car park) he normally works out of office and as in past transfers, only come in house during negotiationsNegotiations with johnson have endedThere is no johnson in centre mid, he hasn't been able to agree a deal!Is it a coincidence that Myles Addison's father is an advisor to the Venkys at Blackburn?

I fail to see how he would add anything to Huddersfield's existing defence or even its understrength midfield.

06 Jun 2012 09:39:53
Ricardo Quaresma has appeared as a target for quite a few Premier League clubs, with Newcastle, Swansea, Everton and newly-promoted Southampton in the running for the Beşiktaş winger.

After enduring a disappointing few years amongst the ranks of Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea, Quaresma has recently found form in Turkey and has found his way into Portugal's Euro 2012 squad.

Quaresma, who will be 29 in September, will cost any potential bidders around £5m.(3)(15)Doubtful that Saints are interested. Bit old for the young Saints team and definately not the right temperamentCouldn't see pardew putting a bid in for someone ageing and who hasn't proved his worth. Everton could be realistic.If you couldn't see padrew going for him; who seems to want anything that moves, how could you see moyes going for him?Don't want him to much moneyHe doesnt fit in with ethics

According to Kevin Affleck, who has sources very close to WFC and is the one spreading the news of the takeover, Reading have walked away from the Mariappa bid. I'm not saying it's a fact, but usually what he says happens and it wouldn't surprise me if Mariappa is not a Reading player next season.(8)(6)Yeh I saw that but he is ultimately bias and used to work for The Watford Observer so is just going by what they've been told by the club. We won't know anything till next week anyway as Mariappa is due to play for Jamaica on Friday.Ah same Kevin that said Watford would have new owners last week. This Kevin guy talks rubbish.Take no notice, this fella has no more idea than any of us.Takeovers don't just happen overnightThere is no takeover. No more needs to be said

redknapp to be booted out of spurs to be replaced my martinez then harry 4 england after roy is sacked after losing all 3 group games. just a hunch i have(18)(36)Total rubbish mr.hunch!I think Trevor Brooking and Co already have realised what a mistake they have made by not appointing Harry Redknapp. Cloughie scenario again. I don't rate Roy to do a good job and after watching Harry on the tv yesterday and listened to his views England have made their second biggest mistake in my lifetime. They will not win another Major Tournament until they appoint the peoples choice as Manager.Roy is not expected to do anything in the Euro's. In fact is job is safe until after the next World Cup. His remit is to build the a squad for that World Cup, the two major tournaments between now and then are just to be used as building blocks for experience etc.Is that you Rio?, honestly give it up sonWhat the FA to admit they were wrong.... never gonna happenMartinez is going nowhere this season, He is staying at Wigan. Maybe next summer but not this year.Harry will be at Spurs next seasonEveryone should be backing roy hodgson!he is the new england manager,so give him a chance instead of slagging him off b4 a ball has been kicked!Too true..it's bad enough the press in this Country go out of their way every tournament to ruin our chances without so called "fans" getting on their backs...ok Roy may not be your choice...so what..pick your rattles up and get behind the team.Roy will surprise a few in his reign as England Manager. Unfortunately the 'no smoke without fire' issues mean Harry will NEVER be seriously considered by the FA for an England position. They consider him unmanageable.

Cabaye also admitted that he is getting used to becoming a toon hero. No truth to this rumour!Money talks, would cisse, cabaye, tiote turn down man utd, city and chelsea if they came in for them and offered them high wages? of course they wouldn't, already well known that tiote and ba are chelsea bound, cabaye will be a man utd player and cisse will go to a top european club whether its in england or abroad

 


06 Jun 2012 08:58:50
Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade will finally sign a striker this week.

Slade has approached the likes of Paul Hayes and Patrick Agyemang in recent weeks, but due to budget cutbacks he will instead turn to last seasons loanee Calvin Andrew.(6)(8)This is still that funny joke going round! Might as well not bother siging him and save money! Got to say have not been inspired so far!
What is the point of keep going if we only get worse every yearThis is not going to happenThis calvin andrews rumour just wont go way, but know from insider that we are not after him.Another Joke Post. I would be extremely surprised if Calvin Andrew were to sign.

Slade will bring in a proven goalscorer.Just been informed that our (Orient) next signing has been agreed and will be announced later this afternoon (6th June).What time and who?Well that happened didn't it. Where's this signing that we're supposedly announcing then?Clearly didnt happen.Players who be great at O's-
Izale Mcleod
Shaun Harrad
Chris Zebroski
Paul Hayes
Liam Hearn
Damien ReevesMy brother told me someone was gonna sign- it was on Eddie Hearn's twitter feed. Little did my bro know that he was announcing a new signing for his Prize Fighter boxing thing. Dipstick!

 


06 Jun 2012 08:58:05
Jermaine Easter at Swindon doubt it very much as he messed Swindon about 2/3 seasons ago.
Same goes for that lump Marvin Morgan he did the same.
Paul Hayes is possible,however Dicanio will surprise a few teams in Division 1 next season(5)(4)It's in all the press about Hayes so we are definatly trying to sign him, agree with you about the other two...don't want them.Morgan is a L2 player and cant see him being successful in L1 but all the stupid rumours going around about signings Hayes is a possibility as stated on our website today and also Williams from Yeovil a potential but as both players are contracted to their current clubs until the end of June there wont be any movement until then. July is always the month for all activity on transfers as players are able to move then.How's di Canio going to surprise everyone then?"But all the STUPID rumours going around about signing hayes is a POSSIBILITY??
I think you mean that the rumours about Easter and Morgan are stupid and won't happen!!
Both Williams and Hayes will very probably happen. As for PDC surprising people I hope so...providing it's for the right reasons!! There are some good players available at the moment and it will be in the last week to ten days of this month before things are sorted out with free signings so they can become official on July 1st.

 


06 Jun 2012 08:36:07
Swindon ins:
Paul hayes,
Andy Williams,
Jon Bostock (Season Loan)
Jay Mceverley.

They are still interested in O'Kane.

These will all be in place before the start of pre-season (Possibly including O'Kane), PDC still has other targets but some of these may have to wait until January.(10)(11)Crickey, on this website, Swindon are after bringing in so many players, they must have 2 teams in the football league. Yawn yawn - see what happens.....Totallt agre about all of the rumours BUT Paul Hayes IS in talks with Swindon...this is in several press issues, Andy Williams is expected to sign on the 1st of July...again the local Swindon Press claim he has all but signed. Bostock had a good loan at Swindon and both the Player and the Club have made no secret of wanting to renew the loan, and Mceveley had a great loan with Swindon and there was no secret made that he was playing to try and get a contract...this was AGAIN publicly stated this week!! so I stand by the post..none of these are names pulled from a hat like a lot of the nonsense on here and those with supposed 'Contacts' within the club who spout off with names grabbed from Wikipedia!! Oh...and Towns interest is on both the BBC and Sky sires if you look back over the last couple of weeks!!

Two Portsmouth players are being linked with joining their old clubs.

Tal Ben Haim is wanted by former club Maccabi Tel Aviv, the team he started out with playing 85 times and scoring 2 goals before his move to Bolton.

Erik Huseklepp looks likely to move back to Norwegian side Brann. Huseklepp played for Brann between 2005 and 2011 and made a total of 118 appearances scoring 29 goals before joining Bari and then Portsmouth. Portsmouth have put Huseklepp up for sale for £800k after signing him for £1.5m.(6)(4)TBH is stalling on leaving Pompey because he wants his dosh - would be absolutely stunned if he left at all coz seemingly we owe him 2m! Huseklepp should return to Brann, he's okay but now outside our price range. PUP

Sorry
Doyle
Long
Shorey
Hunt
We want new blood and quality all the above ever couldn't cut it or was injured not good enough for Reading fc(6)(12)I wouldnt say Doyle,Hunt and Long couldnt do it they signed for better teams (premier league)You wont be able sign betterAgree maybe long but none of the others especially shorey far too slowLong's better than anyone you've got at the momentShane Long our top goalscorer last season I'm pretty sure he would make the cutIn my humble opinion, Jason Roberts is a better more experienced striker than Long.Our attack would be lightweight in the premier league. We need someone like Pogrebnyak or Stephen Fletcher or I can really see us struggling for goalsLong is easily BPL quality,he's just been injured most of the season"I wouldnt say Doyle,Hunt and Long couldnt do it they signed for better teams (premier league)"
Hunt is a terrible player and the only reason he got in our first team in the premier league is becaue convey got injured and glen little was getting old...

 


06 Jun 2012 08:21:19
Why does my team Reading fc. Never disclose who there after ?
IMO the sports director should leave as its him that is unable to negotiate any deals would love the sig back but as for the rest no thanks you can keep
Doyle
Long
Shorey(1)(13)What? You think Hammond should leave even tho he was so good he got 4.5 mill for matt mills?Doubt they'd wanna go back. Enjoy your season.Because like Swansea you look a bit stupid saying we're agreeing on this player and it doesnt happen.

It also creates unnecessary attention in a player which may mean spending more on the player or someone else signi g them!So they dont tell other clubs who theyre after so we end up with another saga like with Tommy Smith?We don't disclose who we are after because teams prefer to do business that way. Every team who we have sold to or brought from commends the way we do business. And I'd by Sports Director you mean Nick Hammond....Are you mad? He has worked wonders on some deals. We never release info on who we are after or the prices we pay. It's the Reading way."IMO the sports director should leave as its him that is unable to negotiate any deals"

The same nicky hammond who got stupid money for matt mills. The guy does an incredible job. Its a shame a lot of other clubs don't do their business in the same quiet dignified manner rather than doing their business through the media.Shane long is a great player I want him back

Appletons targets are...
1) Izale Mcleod: 27 year old who scored 32 in 73 for League 2 Barnet, Oxford and Plymouth are said to be after him too.
2) Andrew Williams: 25 year old scored 22 in 72 for Yeovil.
3) Lee Trundle: 35 year old Neath striker. The former Swansea and Bristol City striker has scored 19 in 33 for the Welsh side.
4) Freddy Eastwood: 28 year old who scored 17 in 113 for Coventry. Wanted by Yeovil and Southend.
5) Adebayo Akinfenwa: 30 year old who scored 18 in 39 for Northampton. Also wanted by Yeovil.(6)(18)Andy williams was rubbish for us two seasons ago, but he did score 16 last season. Also he is a very selfish player and moves from club to club to start a 'new challenge'. He has no loyalty what so ever. Also he said he wanted to move closer to his hometown (hereford), so swindon is the most likely destination for him!Freddy is staying at roots hallCome on, we are in Administration, we cannot afford any of these players - even Trundle who is seriously past it now! Looking for younger, eager strikers who will cost zilch and play for the shirt. PUPWilliams probably signing for Swindon Town on July 1st on a free transfer.Yeovil are also interested in izale McLeodYou dont want andy williams believe me, im a glovers fan and his 16 goals is not the full story... occasionally he would do something with real quality but we're talking once every few games he is very greedy and as mentioned before, no loyalty at all he has no reason to leave us and we made him a talking point this season... going to swindon really is a challenge!I'll pay eastwoods fare to get down there if you wantWhy is going to Swindon a real challenge? I'm not a Swindon fan but they certainly seem to be on the up...and Paolo Di Canio is going to have a very successful career as a Manager, despite what many people may feel about him. Swindon Town are going to get the benefit for taking a gamble on him and they may well be left in a very good position (Champonship?) before he leaves. They have a very rich board in place who seem to be backing Paolo Di Canio...if I was a player I think I would be much more inclined to sign for them than I would Yeovil that's for sure.Lee Trundle is signing for Gloucester anyway.Defo dont want to sign Williams! As a Yeovil fan i am glad he left! he may have had a good season last term but he is one of the most dis-loyal players and is unbelievably greedy with the ball!It is interesting though reading back over the Yeovil forum that this was not what was being said by the fans until it was mentioned on their official site that he would not be re-signing for you! IN fact in that article he thanked all of the fans and mentioned that when he had arrived two years earlier he came because he needed a new challenge and now thought the time was right to challenge himself again...at this point it seems to have been seized on by the fans on the forum who twisted that to he uses that as an excuse to leave and that this makes him disloyal....your fans went from loving everything he was doing (Including certain awards he picked up) to thinking he was a lazy, spent most of the time missing from games and was incredibly disloyal!! All over night!! I know us football fans are the most fickle fans in the universe....but you guys seem to be right at the top of the pile!! How much did his goals go towards keeping you up? Soon forgotten wasn't it?He's good when he wants to be but when he was at Bristol rovers he was appalling and if things go wrong at Swindon he'll be back to square 1 and us Yeovil fans are just annoyyed on how disloyal he has been to our club, like most of our players over last couple of years only difference between us and other clubs is we can't afford to pay massive wages and yet we can still stay in league 1A new challenge? Swindon? ha... glad hes gone. Enjoy

Sigurdson Future:
Swansea move for sigurdson is now off.Readings bid for gyfil has been accepted, but Liverpool are more likely to land him.However Sigurdson likes both clubs anyway but prefer to play for Liverpool at the current stage.So if Liverpool don't move Reading will.(14)(10)God up he will go to pool iv not the swans does not like reading came out last week saying hevis waiting to see who the next swans manager and then decide on future cmon why would he go to readingHe would go to Reading because he was brought up at the club, has friends there and likes it a lot there and didn't actually want to leave at the time. The only reason he left was because Reading needed money and also they weren't a premier league club. Now both these reasons aren't there anymore. That is why he may wish to return to Reading. If anyone has no chance i'd say it's Swansea."why would he go to reading"

Because he grew up at reading and was their for several years not six months!Reading are OK but sig will go to liverpoolSigurdson won't come back he's got a chance to play for liverpool He's probably going Liverpool but as a Reading fc fan I want him back he was great at reading so I hope he comes back.

2 pieces of news for Ipswich fans, both regarding Sheffield United players.

As I understand, and what I've been told from a close source within ITFC, is that Stephen Quinn is close to joining town. A fee of 450k rising to 750k depending on appearances etc, was a agreed last week. He's set to sign by Friday/Monday latest, slight delay due to the extra long bank holiday this weekend.

Secondly, Harry Maguire is due to come to ITFC for talks today/tomorrow. A fee of £900k, rising to £1.5million depending on appearances etc again has been agreed. Source close to the player says he's very interested in joining Town, and the deal for him could be concluded by Monday/Tuesday next week!(12)(17)Not a prayer on the Maguire rumour when 2 million was turned down from Newcastle.I call bullYou've been saying this for 2 months now about HM. Real life isn't FIFA by the way. He wouldn't want to go to ITFC when he can play in the PL.Haha Not a sheffield United or Ipswich fan but i know Harry Maguire won't go to ipswich quite simply because the club has no potentialMaguire is worth alot more than that he is a future england internationalIf the club has no potential why did Elliot hewitt sign! When he was linked with big clubs!!As i have said before. he live opposite my grandad and he has told us that he doesnt want to leave as he see's better plays in he position and doesnt want to end up like Slew.

Rafa Van der Vaart to Shalke(18)(40)I've heard Hargreaves has already had a tour around the medical facilities at Blackburn and is very happy with the set up.And van der vaart has expressed his desire to stay at spursMichael Owen will not be coming to Norwich on his wagesVilla don't want Holt. Lambert said so himself.

LambertsLion1967Lucky,lucky Leicsester.Rafeal Van der vaart wants to go to ItalyYeah but villa are saying gabby might need to go to make room for holt so I would rather keep gabby than have holt however if we could have both thats great.

Lille manager Rudi Garcia is believed to be a main candidate for the vacant Norwich city managerial post(2)(23)Can't really see a manager of a Champions league team, that has 35 to re-invest moving to Norwich.Pull the other one, I think he would rather fight for the title in France then relagation in the premier league

Word is moving fast that Newcastle are moving to sign a young North Korean Jong Il Gwan. Word has it that Derek Llambias was in Korea last year aiming to increase awareness about the club following a massive surge in popularity from the World Cup.

Pak Kwang-ryong was this season the first North Korean to play Champions League football and Newcastle are believed to be looking to expand their scouting operation to find Asian talent in the vein of Shinji Kagawa

Kagawa if you recall, originally moved to Dortmund for around 300k and Newcastle are said to be looking to take the young Korean on a 3 year contract in the hopes of emulating Kagawa's success.

Jong Il Gwan was named the Asian Young Player of the Year in 2010 and features regularly for the North Korean national side.(7)(12)Haha. You can't just compare two players because they're from the same continent you cracker.Llambias in North Korea? You are having a laugh.

North Korea is one of the most secretive Countries in the world and does not allow just anyone in.

 


06 Jun 2012 00:41:31
Harry Maguire in talks with Ipswich in £1.3 million deal(13)(18)Too good for Ipswich!Would like him to come to Ipswich. He looks like a good young player for the future. However I can't see us paying that much for any player.He wont go to ipwich.He has a 550,000 release clause as they didnt know at the start he would perform this well.

Marcel Desailly has been for food with, the Swansea City Chairman, Huw Jenkins in mumbles. Still unclear though if it is just a catch up, as Marcel took his coaching badges with the swans, or if it is something a little more serious.(4)(7)Ian Holloway to Swansea, Jim Gannon from Stockport to Blackpool

reliable inside source says "Aaron wilbrahamwill join this week on a free from Norwich. Turned down Brighton and Bristol city in favour of Crystal Palace. Midfielder/striker will be a good link up man when the board eventually stump up enough cash to by the only thing left that we need which is a top notch goalscorer. Should get 3.5 mil for clyne so they wont have to add too much and then maybe we can end up above brighton and millwall where we belong. come on chairman, we respect the way you and your pals are running the club but we have to be a little adventurous. Oh and just in case one of you reads this. try being a bit more forthcoming with info on the website to keep those who count(the fans) in the loop. Thanks(7)(7)Why does every Palace target have to have "turned down Brighton" first? Grow up for heaven's sake. Brighton have NO interest in Wilbraham whatsoever. Good enough player, not knocking him and a good signing for Palace but just not what Brighton are looking for right nowAgree a decent striker is a must and would be nice if we could use Clyne money to go towards one but we have to bear in mind Palace need to break even and last year we made a 5 million loss. I'd like to see AJ back (might bring the best out in Murray or Zaha) spend 20k on wages should be ok as no transfer fee included.I'm a Palace fan and I agree with the 1st reply, every palace rumour seems to say turned down Brighton or Millwalll. We don't like these teams but doesn't mean all our targets choose us over them.I think you've clearly lost what the club are trying to do. Trying to blood our youngsters through! I doubt very highly that Parish and co would ever pay over 3.5 million for a player!Wilbraham is a league one playerWilbraham would be a success in the championship, above poster has obviuosly not seen him play

celtic in talks with hugo rodallega's agent and a deal is set to be done when he comes back from on holiday(10)(25)Highly doubtful as Celtic couldn't pay the wages he's after and he wants to play at a high level such as La Liga

 


05 Jun 2012 23:43:34
Once the takeover is confirmed by Nottingham Forest, their first signings will be Maynard and Bamford in on loan and a offer of 600k for a player they had on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers but it hasn't been confirmed which one yet and also they will once again show interest in signing Peter Whittington from Cardiff CIty in a player cash deal with Chambers going the other way, and there is a rumour being put about that they would like to re-sign Kelvin Wilson from Celtic(10)(29)It was all sounding great until toy mentioned whittingham. Every summer we have the same conversation and it never happens. If whittingham leaves, it will be for lower prem, not us.What a load of rubbish,there is no gauranteed take over and forest cant even offer contracts to players at the moment,it sounds like your living in cloud cookoo landEvery year they whittingham is leaving but hes loyal to cardiff hes the best player there and for years to come so he'll only leave for a prem team plus he signed a new contractTake Wilson, he's one of the slowest players I've ever seen.

There are rumours that derby are looking at unsettled strikers nicky Maynard and Sam baldock of west ham utd. People that read this may think it's ridiculous but in fact this is a possibility of having a lot of truth in it.


Also favourites to sign Michael Jacobs from Northampton town, Paul Dixon is thought to be still discussing person
terms with derby as he has offers from other clubs I.e. Bristol city. Sammy clingan, Marc Pugh, Lewis mcgugan, fegor ogbude, Joe mattock, Martin Paterson, Matty fryatt, kristian Pearce, aidy White, Jon daly, Richard keogh, nick Powell, matt tootle, Ashley Westwood, nick Montgomery have all been mentioned in the mix through forums, twitter and Facebook.


In terms of outs:

Croft
Addison
Severn (Scunthorpe bound)
Bailey
S.Davies
T.Robinson
Unfortunately possibly shackell (maybe burnley)
Maguire
Green (free agent now)

Deeney(5)(13)Deluded derby fan. There is no chance at all you could sign 90% of the players you are mentioning and pretty sure most derby fans would agree with me on thatDerby derby derby your going to sign so many Players how many have u actually signed like I said u ain't that big or good wake upWell this is a site for rumours.Look at the other clubs who are rumoured to be after so many players i.e. Peterbrough,Reading,Leeds & Southhampton to name a few.
We would all like to see some of the names rumoured to be wanted by our own teams.However,most will be just that rumours.
There is a few on the Derby list that I'd like to see the Rams sign but never going to happen.90% your deluded 7 of them play 2 leagues below derby.

Krystian Pearce
Ashley Westwood
Fegor ogude
Michael Jacobs
Aidy White
Matt tootle
Joe Mattock
Daniel Powell
Johnny Russell
Will Grigg

Have all been contacted

Derby county aint that big whoever you are shut up.As we get a onsistent 25,000-30,000 every week come rain and snow.Whether we win or loose.Popularity
shows how big a club is because it recieves more money from ticket sales and Shirts and other Merchandise.

For Example blackpool had 3000-5000 when they were in the championship when they got promotion they had 15,000 which shows people were only interested in the Premiership when they got relegated it drop to 10,000.

Have you seen Middlesborough stadium during match days.Pride park was built using the same style as THE RIVERSIDE so they have around the same capacitys
derby fills theirs out middlesborough barely a stand.
Its already been anounced that due to high popularity of the club if we were toget promoted and stay up during that first season The owneres would increase the size for 15,000-20,000 to be added around the stadium.

We arient a big we are only one of three
West ham,leeds and Deby that are Premiership clubs that arient in the premiership.

Ovbiously now 3 big well known clubs have been relegated Bolton,Wolves and Blackburn it will be interesting to see whether they manage to get a same number of fans.Yes but some of your deluded fans think if there is more than 1 club after them u think u got the given right they will choose you arrogant I'm a Bristol city fan both after dixon but he will choose derby because there bigger utter nonsense mid table derby last few seasons ye massive clubI get what you mean mate.But your safe
there he choose you over us.Unfortunately we wouldnt agree to his contract demands and you did so we are going for free agent Joe mattock.You team is just unfornate that you have bristol rovers awell otherwise you would have alot more fansYe only a few more though lol finally someone with some football knowledge we are all byast towards are team but u got to be realistic Bristol city are after a few players but nothing has come from mcinnes we released 8 players some on good money frees a bit of cash up as for Dixon nothing coming out of Ashton gate

 


05 Jun 2012 22:46:45
Stockport County interested in Damien Reeves, two BSP central defenders and a left sided goalscorer from League 2. Also wanting to sign Lewis King and would like Joe Edwards on season long loan.(4)(5)You won't get joe edwards if he isn't in first team plans at bristol city yeovil will most probably have first dibs.

 


05 Jun 2012 23:09:41
matt mills will join celtic despite
interest from bolton wanderers(25)(12)Who ever he joins good luck to them player with bad attitude and we got 5.5m for himTrue he's rubbish carnt believe we payed 5m for him he's not worth 2mI'd let Bolton have him, he's not the type of player Celtic want to be bringing in.

 


05 Jun 2012 22:51:54
From a reliable source Altrincham's Damien Reeves wishes to move up one division and stay local near to his home rather than join a league club and play reserve team football again.(4)(10)It must be Grimsby ,Mansfield or Lincoln then, they are the teams closest to his home in Doncaster.

 


05 Jun 2012 23:01:20
People may laugh at this but it's 100% true: I have a friend who's uncle is a football agent and he said that Ex Huddersfield player Gary Roberts is in talks with League One club Shrewsbury Town.(12)(19)His best mate joe Jacobsen plays for shrewsWhy would anyone laugh at this??Collins still not backNot laughing at this either, sounds ok to meHes already signed 4 either pne or shef weds :{This is not laughable, makes a lot of sense! However, with Mark Wright and Aaron Wilding now signed, we only need one more winger, Ryan Hall or Gary Roberts.That's believable, He's over rated (Huddersfield fan)I doubt Gary Roberts would go to Shrewsbury because the whole reason he didnt sign a contract with town was because he though they wouldnt get promoted and he wants championship football and i think he is championship standard dont get me wrong it would be a good signing for shrewsbury but i just couldnt see it happeningPerhaps he was championship standard when he refused to sign a new contract at the start of last season. Since then he's been unbelievably poor and wouldn't cut it in the higher league now. Would be a good signing for a newly promoted club

 


05 Jun 2012 22:38:50
Cardiff midfielder Theo Wharton is going on loan to BSN side Gloucester City, after they lost Matt Lock.(10)(5)I'm a Cardiff City fan and i think to help his development he should go to a league one or two club

Liverpool have a bid of around 8m accepted by Fulham for Clint Dempsey , Peterborough United are close to signing Oldham goalkeeper alex cisak and free agent Danny Swanson , Peterborough are also interested in bringing youngster Adam Morgan in on loan. Arsenal are ready to offer Wonjech Snezczny and some cash to bring Pepe Reina to the Emirates , Liverpool are interested in signing Roberto Soldado And Adam Johnson , Liverpool outs : Martin Skrtel (Inter & Real madrid are interested) Glen Johnson ( Real Madrid showing interest) Dirk Kuyt (already gone to fenerbahce) Maxi ( interested in a move to a spanish team) Jay Spearing ( Wigan or Southampton loan) Luis Suarez (Real Madrid , Barcerlona , Juventus interested but he wants to stay) Brendan rodgers will listen to offers for Andy Carroll.(8)(37)Made up rumour, Wojciech Szczęsny is better than reinaPeterborough not interested in making loan signings. Confirmed by both Darren Ferguson and Darragh MacAnthony weeks ago. None of the previous loans have had any great impact, so club are closing the door on the loan system.We could possibly put a bid in for himRE: 1st reply
On what planet is Szczesny better than Reina?! Reina is world class and szczesny is average..Firstly, suarez doesnt want to stay. secondly, dempsey said he would only leave for a champions league club. thirdly, soldado is a spanish international, playing for a club which gets champs league every year. Stupid. Deluded. ScouserSzczesny is well beter than reina.every fan apart from liverpool fans will say that reina has gone down alot in the last 2 years and szceza is only improvingI've watched Spearing several times this season and he always looks horribly out of his depth. Honestly don't think he's better than Saints have already.Spearing to Wigan? Lol He wouldn't make our bench, dreadful playerSuarez DOES want to stay and rodgers has told the board that suarez cannot be soldPeterborough have won the chase to sign Scottish midfielder Danny Swanson who is out of contract with Dundee UnitedWigan and Fulham are chasing Derby County Striker Theo Robinson For A fee of 1.5 millionIm a lfc fan and yeah i agree reina has had a bad season and is definitely not in the form of his life but that by no means makes szczesny better than him because hes not. reina is a better keeper alough szczesny has a lot to give he is not up to reina's standards! but who knows...he may be one day, we will have to wait and see! LFC.DAN.YNWAI am a neutral fan and I would say currently Reina possibly has the edge on Szczesny.

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

Rotherham United will tomorrow submit a club record bid for an unnamed young international striker, the club are also in discussions with 4 other players to join the Millers.(9)(5)Nahki Wells ?????Will have to wait and see on this one.International Stirker? - I didn't know Rotherham had big links with The Faroe IslandsRobbie Brady the name being heavily linked in the local press.We have approached chesterfield for their striker scott boden, he's quick and quite strong. think he would be a good signing if we could sign him though..... possibly a 20 goal season man. we dont usually have a consistant striker but i believe that he would be. i have seen him play and think he could cause teams problems........ c'mon boden sign for the millers !!!! i know we are not chesterfield class and i know they gave us a 5-0 wooping but with you we can match them !We apparently approached man united for robbie brady but we wasnt prepared to pay around 450k for him so looking to bring him on loan and why would we want to bring a chesterfield striker in

but young norwood is passionate
about coventry and has said in the past he would like to stay(11)(7)Mate i know ollie and he is coming to burnley if he has the chance not coventryHe isn't on a free as he signed a new one year deal at Man U.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 


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

 


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But I expect to see 5 signings

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

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

Krystian Pearce
Michael Jacobs
Daniel Powell

To be bought

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

To be sold

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

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

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

Rumour around swindon today is that out of favour jermaine easter will be touring italy with swindon this pre-season(14)(4)Thought he still had a contract at palace?Good if truePalace are letting him go. It's on their forums.Would be a great signing

Shrewsbury have offered a contract to out of contract Tranmere Rovers midfielder Joss Labadie.(14)(3)Would be a decent signing, but what about dave mccallister? any deal there?No they haven't , have it on good authority that no Shrewsbury have no interest in the player. (Mr T)No thanks :/
attitude problems!Decent enough but Labadie is close to signing for Walsall

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

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

Ipswich have had a 400,000 bid for Dean Marney turned down by Burnley with the Clarets holding out for around 750,000 for the midfielder

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Aston Villa set to sign Grant Holt.

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

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

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

Peterborough United are very close to signing Alex Cisak of Oldham for over £300,000. Also the Posh are set to sign Danny Swanson if he passess a medical. Both good signings I reckon, UTP.(16)(9)Peterboro will have a 70 man squad before longBurton fan here what can u tell us about

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

Danny Cadamarter joins Carlisle United on a 2-year deal with another player which is to be named in a few days.(10)(11)Says on wikipedia cadamarter has agreed a 2 year deal at carlisle

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

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

rotherham united rumours anyone?(0)(15)Steve Evans to leave by mutual consent.Matt tubbs?Tubbs as ruled himself out lads gutted like but we will find someoneAbout to sign collins from shrewsbury

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

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

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

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

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

Preston North End have earmarked Carlisle's Lee Miller as their top summer target. Miller, who recently underwent an operation on a troublesome hernia, is the target man Graham Westley wants to spearhead his new look Preston side and Miller is keen in the move, despite enjoying his time in Cumbria.

Despite speculation, Franois Zoko is not in line for a move to Preston, with his agent pushing hard for a lucrative move tithe Championship.(5)(15)Preston can jog on if they want to have Lee Miller, he will never go there, same with any Carlisle player!We said that before remember simmo reeves and deano they all went to prestonDeano never went to PNE.Preston fans are living in a dream world
