And it shows how stupid some people are, celtic fc number 7 will be liam lawrence, after all his number at stoke is number 7, so don't expect bellamy or keane to be at cfc. there your new playmaker, who i believe will do very well, awesome at free kicks, good touch, and when rep of ireland play in internationals, mc geady sits on bench while lawrence is playing on the field so think use have a good player on your cards too good buisness too 2 million for him and nearly 10 million out. just wish all these cfc fans grow up and stop talking rubbish about keane and bellamy after all doesn't make good buisness sense, after all be no re sale value, pay 4 to 6 million for either bellamy or keane then say for 3 year contract at 60,000 a week which is bout what they could get max and would maybe accept, would make around 10 million in wages over 3 years, and the outlay of 4 to 6 million. now celtic fc have money, but the board arent stupid as one of the most financial astute clubs in europe, what they going to change policy over nite, get with it, because won't make no money on the player and that is what cfc board look to do, im a celtic fan, but i clearly know about football and have my feet on the floor unlike half your rangers fans and celtic fans who know sweet f all, what you think ed??? {editor's note – I agree with you up to a point, but you have to remember that players like Bellamy and Keane sell a lot of shirts. So that can cover a lot (or sometimes even all) of the wages.}(11)(15)

 09 Aug 2010 22:33:49
Ozil will not go to barcelona as they are hoping to get fabregas next season or in January and they want a spanish player, Ozil will also not go to manchester united because of his wage demands and SAF won't spend big on him he wants to save the money for next transfer window so he can replace Edwin Van Der Sar, Giggs and Scholes.

Why wouldn't he spend the money now. Ozil would be a replacement for scholes so whats the difference between doing it now or next summer. .apart from him risking not getting the player next summer.(9)(23)

Why are some idiots claiming to be celtic fc fans, saying MON to be director of football, what planet are use on, first off, he has just left villa and anyone that know MON he will take time out to re–evaluate and spend time with family before deciding what to do next, bet half of use so called hoops fans, are closet fans, who never even been to a game at parkead amount of rangers fans and celtic fans who say fans, but probably closest got to be either is just wearing there top. . im a true cetic fan, live in london now, and for last 3 years have never missed a home game. . IF GO ON CELTIC TALK WHICH REAL WEBSITE FOR REAL FANS, NO ONE IS SAYING ABOUT BRING MON BACK, ACTUALLY THEY DID A POLL.

DIRECTOR OF FOOTBALL 32 PERCENT
MANAGER 12 PERCENT
LENNON AS MANAGER 55 PERCENT

MON GREAT MANAGER AND ALWAYS BE IN HEARTS OF HOOPS FAITHFULL, BUT HE IS PAST AND THIS IS PRESENT.

TIME TO BE BEHIND LENNON AND STOP WITH THE BULLs t.

ON A OTHER NOTE,
RAMIS WAS OFFERED TO CETIC FC OVER 7 WEEKS AT 1 MILLION NOT 1.5 MILLION, LENNON HAS NOT BROUGHT HIM IN. SO DONT EXPECT RAMIS.

LAWRENCE SIGNED BY END OF WEEK.

BELLAMY IS JUST TALK FROM USE, AT A Q AND A WITH LENNON AND THE BOARD, THEY SAID THEY WOULD NOT BE CHASING EITHER AS PROBABLY COULD AFFORD WAGES, AND I STILL DONT SEE BUISNESS SENSE OF IT, AS NO RE SALE VALUE. SO DONT EXPECT EITHER OF THESE 2 AT CLUB.

CELTIC FC GOT EYE ON 2 LB'S AND LOOKING AT 3 POSSIBLY 4 CB'S. OBVIOUSLY WAITING FOR MONEY TO GO THROUGH TO SEE WHO GO FOR AS PROBABLLY FIND 1 OR 2 CHEAPER AND OTHER 2 MORE EXPENSIVE. GK EXPECT ON LOAN AND WOULDNT BE SURPRISED IF LOAN DEAL ON CARDS WITH SPARTAK, , AS SPARTAK WHERE DESPRITE TO GET THERE MAN. SO WOULDNT BE SURPRISED IF LENNON ENQUIRED ABOUT FEW THINGS WITH THEM.

EXPECT ONE EXCITING ATTACKING MIDFIELDER, AND POSSIBLY TOP STRIKER BUT I REPEAT WONT BE KEANE AS HE BEEN SCORING FOR FUN FOR TOTTENHAM. SO DOUBT HARRY WOULD LET HIM GO NOW. AND BELLAMY, WHO I WOULD LOVE TO SEE AT CLUB ONCE MORE, WOULD NOT MAKE GOOD BUISNESS SENSE AND AFTER ALL IT IS A BUISNESS WE ARE IN, CANT JUST THROUGH MONEY ANYWHERE AS LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO RANGERS, WITH ALL THERE SPENDING THEY DONE IN 90'S. NOW THEY HAVE TO RE THINK AGAIN. TO BE HONEST ALL THIS TALK WE WALK LEAGUE IS MINDLESS IDIOTS WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL, RANGERS BE ANOTHER HARD TEAM TO BE WALTER VERY GOOD AT DEFENCE, AND COUNTER ATTACK, HOW MANY TIMES DID WE OUT PLAY, AND WALK AWAY WITH NOTHING, SO WONT BE THAT EASY. BUT WILL BE A GOOD SEASON ONE I CANT WAIT TO STICK TO THE GERS, AS THEY DO MY NUT IN WITH THE BULL THEY COME OUT WITH. SUPPOSE AT END OF SEASON WHEN WE WIN, THEY MOAN, YOU SHOULD OF WON IT AFTER ALL WE DIDNT HAVE MUCH MONEY, EXCUSE FOR EVERYTHING THEY DO SEE YOU AT THE FINISHING POST P.S HOOPS FANS OR SUPPOSEDLY HOOPS FANS, GET REAL FOR ONCE(7)(6)

Swansea have secured Scott Sinclair for 500k + 500k if we get promoted as most of you all know by now.

Kemy Agustien (impressive trialist) to sign 1 year rolling deal next week even though hes out for 1–2 months.

possibly getting Caleb Folan in on loan, Brendan spoke to him before the game on saturday.

other transfer targets include Steve Morison of Millwall, highly unlikely as Millwall want 2m!

Darren Pratley and Ashley Williams to stay whilst Forest will get reported for "tapping up" Pratley and Cardiff's Peter Whittingham!

moves for Jack Cork and Brian Stock have died down and won't be happening! (9)(17)

 

 09 Aug 2010 22:45:07
Editor, i do not know if you can remember but a couple weeks ago i said a close friend of mine who has a source told me Manchester United will make a cheeky bid for James Milner, this has currently come out in "Caught offside" not that i believe a word they say but nonetheless it could be going somewhere, the same mate of mine told me today that Manchester United will be using a few red Herrings in the next couple of weeks, i do not no who or what names they will use but its a strong indication that United are going to be doing some business after all!

Chelsea to sign a right winger before the season starts, the same name that has been coming up lately is that Bentley will be signed for anything between £8–13mil, he would probably take the no7 shirt at chelsea. .tottenham would use the money to sign a cb and left back, bridge and richards from man city could be players signed but would cost combined around £12–15mil(7)(15)

 

 09 Aug 2010 22:46:13
ED, i know it is a dense subject on here today. How much credence do you believe the Ashley Young move to Liverpool has. Do you think Martin 'add a zero' O'Neill realised that his best players would have to move on in order to cement places on the international and european stage? Would love it, just love it, if Young signed for Woy's army!

Karl. {editor's note – I don't think (and am personally glad of it because I don't rate him) there is anything in the rumours of Young joining Liverpool.}(4)(7)

TO THE DUDE WHO SAID THIS

Man utd transfer rumour!

ozil will NOT be joining utd this season! nor will he at the end of his contract in germany! sorry to united fans but i know that this will not happen! uniteds transfer market is shut for summer transfers!

this is only cause of fergie following in arsenals footsteps an intrusting succes in youth players coming through the ranks! money is there to buy but fergie feels he doesn't need it!

united for life!

WHY WOULD SAF FOLLOW IN ARSENALS FOOTSTEPS WHEN THEY HAVENT WON ANYTHING FOR YEARS!

so the ozil rumour could be true, but apart from insiders in manutd, no one else knows if he will sign or not(13)(6)

Rapid bosses are expected to hold further talks on the proposed transfer of Nikica Jelavic to Glasgow Rangers.
The 24 year old Croatian International is unlikely to stay

BLACKPOOL FAN HERE – Have learned tonight that Scottish Club Dundee United have accepted £30,000 for Defender Gary Kenneth with Blackpool 3rd choice goalkeeper Matty Gilkes joining them on a season long loan

Utter bulls t. Gilksy is currently first choice goalkeeper, Rachubka being the second and Halstead third. And Dundee already rejected an offer much much higher. You're a Blackpool fan my arse. :/(4)(4)

 

 09 Aug 2010 22:11:08
Jelavic is holding out for 25k a week, Rangers have offered 15k plus bonuses, but its not enough
also he wants pay off from Rapid, roughly whats left on his existant contract, roughly 800k
so expect this to drag on for a few more days, if Rangers meet his wage demands they will need to sell someone to appease the bank who are still pulling the strings(9)(16)

 

 09 Aug 2010 22:11:39
Barcelona FC are on the verge of signing Mezit Ozil from Werder Bremen (according to elmundo.es). Barcelona are awaiting the green light from Pep Guardoila to move for the player seen as an alternative to Arsenal player Cesc Fabregas. Ozil could reach an agreement with the club as soon as Thursday with a 4 year deal worth around 10 to 15 million euros. Manchester United were also interested in the player with Sir Alex Ferguson watching him play against Fulham on Saturday. But it appears the allure of Barcelona and stars such as Villa, Xavi, Iniesta and Messi have attracted Ozil to Catalonia.
This is 100% true. Tomorrow all the papers will lead with this story.(8)(24)

Martin O'Neill's Future. . . . . . . . .

O'Neill was interviewed by two clubs within the last 4 months the first being Liverpool (Dalglish and Rush) the second being Manchester City (Cook & Marwood). Due to City's league position last season scuppered O'Neill's chance of joining City, Mancini like Hughes will have limited time to deliver with Oneill waiting to pounce.(11)(7)

Hatem Ben Arfa is joining Newcastle on Thursday or Friday, the Marseille chairman confirmed Newcastle are agreeing the loan deal, and he will fly in after international duty to put pen to paper.

I understand Newcastle will have first option to buy at the end of the season– for £3m– which is his release clause that becomes active next summer. Chris Hughton stated after the pre season friendly with Rangers that he wants 2 or 3 more acquisitions. One of these is likely to be another striker, and possibly cover for the wings. (that bit is speculation)(12)(6)

Maicon deal to Madrid is dead, Madrid realized that he was way overpriced for a 29 year old RWB and although he lowered his wage demands from 7 mil a year to 5.5 mil a year it still won't happen.

Also Ashley cole deal to Madrid is dead as Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed him self that the deal has never been in question, MAdrid won't be getting their two top defensive targets. Source: ESPN

Next about Ozil. Man United have matched barcas price of 13.6 mil, so its about 50/50 where he will go, i've heard he likes barca's style of play, i've heard that he dreams of a move to united but i guess we will see. I know SAF was at the Werder Bremen Fulham friendly and he says it was to check out Fulham but how are we expected to believe that bullocks when all of this talk about Ozil is going on, i've also heard that he was at the Community Shield game but im not sure about that, and i've also heard that he was showed around United's training facilities but i can't confirm. And no im not going to post a time frame of when this will happen to make it more believable, believe it if you want to i can tell you its true what im saying, no need to post rubbish on this site.

Roberto Mancini has said that he hopes the deals of balotelli and milner are to be completed by thursday, is the reason he resigned because of the sales of milner and ashley young?? Source: Sky sports

Jose Mourinho has specifically said on ESPN that Benzema will not be going anywhere, they can't expect Higuain and Ronaldo to carry the striking load through 3 different competitions so he will be staying. Source: ESPN

Pepe Reina will most likely not go to Arsenal, Wenger will not spend 25 mil on a keper and he doesn't want to give up theo walcott because he sees a bright future for the lad. Source: Sky Sports

Tom Cleverley is most likely to be gone on a season long loan to wigan despite SAF saying that he has an important role to play. Source: Imscouting

Ramires to Chelsea deal is to be completed very shortly, a fee has been agreed of about 18 mil, he is to undergo a medical and agree to personal terms to complete the deal. Source: ESPN

Fabregas, Torres, Gerrard, Maicon, Vidic, Mertesacker will all stay with their club respectively.

And as a United supporter, we won't figure anything out until the season as SAF has said he's happy with the squad and that he needs a few tweaks here and there but we'll find out.(19)(15)

Blimey it's been a busy day at the in the know office. I have just got off the phone to a contact in Liverpool. He has word that Liverpool are set to sign 6 players before the end of the transfer window.

Stephen Ireland – 5 Million
Shawn Wright Philips 6 Million
Carlton Cole – 8 Million / (possibly deal done by end of this week)
Scott Parker 10 Million
Ashley Young – 16 Million. (right before the end of the transfer window with option of Babel going the other direction)

Expect all of these to come through right before the window ends. Roy has gone British. I will be in touch with my contact in Spain and Italy in the next few days. So watch this space. You heard it here first – Man in the Know 1981.

Jay Spearing and Tom Kennedy are close to agreeing deals to join Cardiff.

Steve Naismith may also join, if he is not guaranteed a regular start at Rangers. However, this will mean that Ross McCormack and Gavin Rae are moved on.

Bothroyd and Chopra definitely staying, and a fourth striker will come in for a free/cheap price – likely to be Adam Le Fondre – but Febian Brandy, Marlon Harewood, Francis Jeffers, Ricardo Vaz Te and Jan Vennegoor Of Hesselink are also being looked at.

Former Sheffield Wednesday winger/striker Etienne Esajas is due in Cardiff for talks, but Hull and Doncaster also want him.(9)(16)

 

 09 Aug 2010 21:20:30
Ozil is joining Manchester United very soon. The delay is simply because the three parties involved (Man United, Ozil himself and Werder Bremen) are trying to sort out the best possible deal to suit each. This is because Sir Alex is being stingy. And Tom Cleverley is to be his able deputy.(17)(12)

Bristol City to sign Dave Kitson from Stoke after finally agreeing the fee and wages. City are desparate for some fit players and have capitulated on the fees being asked. They've also had a bid accepted by Arsenal for Jay Simpson, but Palace are in the driving seat for him. He has no intention of going to Hull. Robert Koren also sounded out by City but it seems he's off to a team in the Midlands, not sure which one.(11)(7)

Although its not been officially made known
Werder bremen have accepted a bid from Manchester United Fc for german playmaker Mesut Ozil. The player is likely to have a medical on tuesday/wednesday and will sign a 4 year deal around 70,000 a week(much more than he gets at bremen) The only reason barca became favourites by skybet etc was that they knew he already signed for man u but if they made sum1 else favourites after not being in the running, they can gain a bit of money, before suspending the odds

Also e.d after suspension of the odds on ozil joining do you think he's joiining a team? if so ho do you think he will join?

Lee Naylor is almost certain to sign, just a matter of ironing out details.

ipswich are preparing a bid of around 750–1 mil for Mccornack as City do not want John Stead.

Also the goalkeeper problem will be addressed with new signing delac not here til next season, Turnbull and hilario just arnt close to been good enough, begovic from stoke is a likley no2, qualifies for homegrown aswel, he can sit on the bench at stoke or sit on the bench at chelsea

I agree that Jelavic will not remove himself in order to come to Glasgow tomorrow. After Martin Bain flew out to Austria on Saturday evening again in order to tie up the deal; it is more than likely that Jelavic will be announced as a Rangers signing prior to Croatia's friendly on Wednesday.

The reason that there will be no delay in this deal until after Rapid Vienna's Europa League qualifier with Aston Villa, is that according to reports he would be ineligable to play for Rangers in the Champions League.

In addition, I believe that Martin Bain has gone to Austria with authority to offer the full 5 million Euros that Rapid's board are demanding. This nonsense that Walter Smith will not recieve any of the Champions League bounty is pure speculation based on reports in Scottish Tabloids. The hierarchy at Lloyds Banking Group are no fools, they realise that they have to speculate to accumulate; By this, I mean that they understand that if we cannot improve upon the squad we have, then our chances of winning trophies is jepordised and as such the prize money will not be there to clear our debt. So in essence Lloyds Banking Group would be cutting their nose of to spite their face.

Expect the deal for Jelavic to be tied up this week, he will head to Glasgow to be paraded to the Ibrox faithful and the media immediately after the International friendlies.

Also expect Georgie Welcome to sign an initial 2–3 year deal after the organised Bounce/Training game on Wednesday night at Murray Park. This will cost about £500,000. bringing the total for Jelavic & Welcome to approximately £5, 250,000.

Please remember it was released in the media at the end of last season that Lloyds Banking Group had given permission for Rangers to spend an initial £5,000,000 subject to reducing the wage bill; which has happened. At no point has any statement been released by Lloyds or Rangers stating that all the Champions League money would be swallowed by the bank.

I would point out that I do not expect Rangers to spend the whole £12–15,000,000 however a substantial chunk of this amount will be put back into the club. I have been told by people that I trust far more than the tabloids that Rangers now have an arrangement with Lloyds which means the debt will be paid at a fixed amount of a period of years to allow the club to operate in the transfer market unlike the last two years. The Lloyds hierarchy are now satisfied that the Rangers board have a sound financial plan set out to assist in clearing the debt.

I would urge all true Rangers fans to ignore the speculation and watch what happens.

Rangers will win their 3rd title in a row. Celtic look like the Man City of Scotland, by attempting to buy the Championship and look what happened in the EPL; it was one by a team that spent almost nothing improving the squad. Mark my words, Celtic will be lucky to finish 3rd.(55)(49)

Donaldson has been involved with the England u19 team and is highly rated as one for the future at Newcastle.

Rangers and Rapid Vienna have all but settled on a fee for striker Nikica Jelavic. But STV Sport understands the player is yet to agree on the personal terms offered and is holding out for money from his current employers he claims the Austrian club owe him, before he settles on a move to Scotland.

Jelavic, who scored for Rapid in their 2–0 win over Sturm Graz at the weekend, is believed to be subject of a £3.2 million offer from the Glasgow club, who had a reduced bid for the 24–year–old rejected last week.

Speaking a week ago, Jelavic outlined his desire to move to Rangers, saying he felt he had given Rapid a level of consistent performance that merited him the right to move onto bigger things. "I was informed about Rangers' interest in me and I really want to go, " Jelavic said.

"Rapid are a great side and I have enjoyed my time here but I have paid them back well with goals and I deserve the chance to go. It has always been my dream to play in Britain and Rangers are a big club with tradition. I would love to play there

If England don't get a good result or performance against Hungary then surely he will be off.

The F.A must be looking for a way to get rid of Capello after the disasterous world cup and at the moment the right man to replace him is out of a job. Therefore they will not have to pay anything for him to become next manager, their only outlay now will be Capello's pay–off.

Well Ed, credit where its due – you did predict O'Neil's departure – just not so soon!
I was in Belgium at the weekend and Dufour had a blinder for Liege (won 4–1). He is getting back to his best but the rumour–mill has him giving Standard 1 more season.
The Marko Suler (KAA Gent's Slovenian Centre–Half) saga has taken a twist. His injury was worse than feared and he will be out for a few weeks – possibly scuppering his move to Celtic. They were due to watch him AGAIN on Sunday against Genk before formally bidding. I can tell you his VERY KEEN to speak to them. He is an excellent defender – Gent capitulated (0–4) without him.
Also, don't know what you heard but 2 of the French–speaking Belgian papers had us (Villa) interested in Mbark Boussouffa from Anderlecht – an excellent, nippy forward. Methinks this afternoon's carry–on has knocked that for 6!(11)(7)

Uh–oh! With O'Neil gone, all INCOMING transfers will be put on hold if not abandoned. Lerner will lap up the money from Milner, Young et al though. . Less than a week to go, couldn't be worse timing.
On the bright side, I'm a BIRMINGHAM fan who, along with The Editor, saw this coming. Hence my post that I had a feeling in my water that Stephen Ireland would NOT end up at crummy, silly Villa!. .

As for BLUES;
Camoranesi
Grosso
Dembele
N'Zogbia
Ireland (Possibly only a Loan?)
Clyne

IN THAT ORDER! This aint a prediction, its whats gonna happen & I have my reservations. Keep 'em peeled. . .

Martin o neill will be offered a role as director of football at celtic. He and neil lennon are good mates so they would be able to work well together. However i would expect there to be a clause that allows MON to leave if offered a management job.

The imminent sale of mcgeady will fund a £2m bid for liam lawrence, a keeper probably real valladolids that they have been linked with. A centre back ivan ramis who was offered to celtic for £1.5m due to mallorcas debt and also a left back as mulgrew can't defend. the rest will be kept to help balance the books.(29)(56)

Happy Tim. {editor's note – I guess it is possible, but I have no info on it. As for him walking from Villa, it is simply a case of Lerner fed up of him spending money on players who aren't good enough and not being able to build a squad.

Editor, you've been saying for a few days that O'Neills exit from Villa was looking likely and you've been proved correct. What are the definitive reasons for the departure? Is it purely the milner sale? the milner sale combined with a lack of reinvestment or should we expect to see more departures from Villa Park? {editor's note – it was his poor transfer dealings that were the problem.

"09 Aug 2010 13:34:20
Jay Simpson agreed terms with Hull last week, he was at the training ground on Thursday and Friday and was at the game on Saturday, only the delay with the parachute money prevented his signing, he will now sign this week.

Hull are also signing a free agent midfield player, believed to be Robert Koren and a loan keeper."

What rubbish. Hull City still owe an immediate £9m to clubs for past signings. City made a deal with creditors to pay this off slowly in order to avert Administration, Hull very nearly couldn't sign Bostock on Loan due to this perilous financial state. Pearson said today "More players will have to move out before ANY new additions are made". Do you think clubs who are owed money will accept Hull paying over a Million £ for a new player when they are still waiting for payment. Loan players are the only option, Hull could not afford Korens wages.

Hull have no fee's owing to clubs immediately, all monies owed to other clubs have been rescheduled, no payment date has ever been missed and the parachute payment has been paid in full. Jay Simpson fee will be spread of the next year and he will start from Hull at Millwall on Saturday(wait to see Saturdays team sheet before responding).(8)(14)

These player will be:

I will tell you now, SWP, Ade, Ireland and Bellamy will go nowhere this summer.

SWP has been playing outstanding in the preseason friendlys, he is also home grown.

Ade has been given the number 9 shirt for the season, also has been seen in an interview saying he is excited to play alongside mario ballotelli.

Ireland has also said he wants to stay and fight for his place. I think he could be a vital player coming of the bench, also homegrown. (Played in England 3 years before he was 23)

Bellamy was our best player last season i doubt that we would sell him especially as we don't need any money.

People are taking this 25 man squad to far. 25 players is ALOT of players. people think because city are buying all these foreign players that people will be left out therefore city will not do well. If someone can't get in the 25! man squad then surely they can't be a title winning player.

I have no sources on transfers but from what i have seen on here and what goes through i think Ballotelli and Milner will sign. maybe a cheeky bid for Torres to stir it up a bit.(6)(21)

Things have changed a lot since the Rafa era, Roy is his own man and is making his own decisions on who to buy and speaking direct to Purslow about it. He did want a striker and a left back, Aurelio signed a new deal, so that is the left back taken care of, so now a striker is the number one priority. He did want a target man, but whether that has changed now he has had time to assess the squad or not, I can't say for certain.}(10)(2)

Yes Hull City do owe money to other clubs but they have an agreement in place with other clubs to allow them to do transfers. Robert Koren is willing to come to Hull City on a reduced wage as he is good friends with Nigel Pearson the manager at Hull City.

In response to this fool –

"09 Aug 2010 13:34:20
Jay Simpson agreed terms with Hull last week, he was at the training ground on Thursday and Friday and was at the game on Saturday, only the delay with the parachute money prevented his signing, he will now sign this week.

Hull are also signing a free agent midfield player, believed to be Robert Koren and a loan keeper."

What rubbish. Hull City still owe an immediate £9m to clubs for past signings. City made a deal with creditors to pay this off slowly in order to avert Administration, Hull very nearly couldn't sign Bostock on Loan due to this perilous financial state. Pearson said today "More players will have to move out before ANY new additions are made". Do you think clubs who are owed money will accept Hull paying over a Million £ for a new player when they are still waiting for payment. Loan players are the only option, Hull could not afford Korens wages.(13)(13)

To the guy who said this:
Hi, To al the celtic fans who think there team are superior than last year . . . well at least you can hope eh. Celtic need at least another 4 players to slightly improve that team of no hopers. mcgeady deal is a lucky one as he is not worth even half of the money that is bieng offered by spartak if hes worth £10million then boughy is worth £20 million. anyway RANGERS NEWS jelavic will be in FACT, no one else is leaving as Walter smith won't allow it and as celtic have flopped out of champions league again Rangers will recieve more money.

anyway here we go 3 in a row.

Rangers are getting 15m but Walter Smith isn't gettin to use it the bank are taking straight away. Bellamy is going to celtic for £4m and McFadden for £3.5m(53)(54)

Hi

Just heard

Liverpool are interested in signing

1. M. Diarra from Real Madrid

2. Marco Streller – ??

3. Dragan Mrdja – ??

ed any ideas who 2&3 are and are they any good. Will they make it in the the EPL.

SHEZYPOOL {editor's note – I have heard of Streller, but I can't say I have heard of him as a Premier League quality player. He still plays in Switzerland doesn't he? And, for a striker, it is unusual for them to stay in their homeland if they are any good, though he might be younger than I realise which would explain it. I really don't have a clue who the other guy is, when I get some spare time I will see if I can find out something on him.}ed here is the fella name slightly wrong

Player profile
Before Serbia's friendly with Japan in April, Mrdja was given little chance of making the plane for South Africa, but a two–goal performance meant Radomir Antic could not leave him out.

He is one of only three players in the squad still plying their trade in Serbia and finished the 2009–10 season as the league's top scorer this season with 22 goals in 29 matches for Vojvodina.

Mrdja has had spells in Belgium and Russia but was named club captain by Vojvodina after returning home and scored four goals in their 7–0 win over Napredak Krusevac on the final day of the season, to add to two hat–tricks earlier in the campaign.

Antic has been impressed with versatility as he is comfortable playing in a variety of positions across the frontline. He made his debut for Serbia in 2008, but did not appear in any World Cup qualifiers.(6)(36)

In response to the response below:

Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal board, sell Fabregas and I quit. Because of a major (unknown as yet) law suit RE: Highbury development. Arsenal are not yet in serious debt but do require in excess of £60 million by next March to service the shortfall in finace income from the Mews development. Fabregas will sign for Barcelona in January moving at end of season to finance this shortfall. Unless Arsenal sold to Kronke by start of 2011/12 season city rumours are that administration will be inevitable. For Pompey last season read Arsenal next. Info from a close mate working for ABN AMRO.

HAHA at least make it the slightest bit realistic ed correct me if im wrong but didn't arsenal say they didn't have to sell cesc because there where in such good financial shape no matter how much anybody threw at them o yea and AW is looking to extend his contract to another long term 1 and the he will more or likly move on to the board after that's up

AFC – {Cesc is hardly going to sign a contract extension is he? Cesc has already said Arsenal are keeping him against his will, plus Barcelona are convinced that they can sign him in January, but certainly next summer, after all Wenger did ask him for one more year so expect him gone this time next season, Arsenal cannot keep him against his will next season as he will have 4 years left on his contract and he can buy himself out of it for just over 20 million!}

The poster was not referring to Cesc extending his contract, he was saying that Wenger will renew HIS OWN contract. If you read the post properly, do you really think that Cesc would move onto the board when his deal runs out?! Did you read the sports sections yesterday? Because the statements attributed to AW in the above post are lifted directly from an interview with him. {editor's note – now I see why the guy was saying my response made no sense, it used the same brackets as me, but it was not my response.}(6)(31)

Can guarantee you that the wage on offer was make stopped any more, Eustace never even had a medical with Leeds, my info comes from multiple Agents and their clients,

Leeds have annoyed alot of people this window throwing in ridiculously low bids for players & offering League One wages to Championship players, there is a reason that the majority of their signings have come from League One & League Two, plus players like Bessone who comes off low wages in Spain and thus low wages at Swansea, & it's because they are offering insulting wages compared to clubs in the same division, even Norwich & Millwall, (28)(21)

A good source close to Cardiff City reckons that two of Dave Jones big four season long loan signings are Seyi Olofinjana (Hull) and Craig Bellamy. He says the talk at the club is that Man City will be letting Bellamy go on a supported loan deal allowing him more time with his family in Cardiff. He also told me that Celtic are pushing hard, but Bellamy doesn't see any more of a challenge now than when he was there in 2007.


Actualy Bellamy played for Celtic in 2005.
Also i think he will go to Celtic they will be able to afford his wages after McGeady, Hinkel and maybe Samara leave. He will be the new number.7

See if you can read the statement you wouldn't look like a plum


No there not, utter tripe! Thats the equivelent of about £96000 a week for a year and they couldn't afford to give boyd a decent wage of around £20 odd thousand a week for 3 years. For cost saving, Rangers main aim, to get rid of boyd and then spend 5m euros + wages on his replacement, don't think so. Just not in the position to do it.

Celtic now have about 12m to spend, all McGreedy money going to the team. Money needs to be spent wisely, i.e. Defenders, defenders, defenders. Not 1m players, real decent 3–4m plus players. Midfield will do well, create chances, Juarez, Ki, Ledley, Brown are quality players, Up front, yeah, Keane or Bellamy would be nice but with Hooper, Rasmussen, Murphy, we'll get enough goals to win the league and push on in the Europa but we need to stop conceding goals more than anything else.

Wrong. John Eustace wa about to sign for Leeds when he had a change of heart and stayed with Watford, where he won player of the year last year and became captain. He was offered three times as much wage at Leeds but rejected it. He never partook in a medical. I don't know how you can say he failed a medical as he played nearly every match last year and has played through preseason. He just turned Leeds down(10)(17)

To the guy (Manu fan) who said Ozil to Barca after losing out on Fabregas, I can see this happening. Especially considering the debt prob at Barca and a max. price for Ozil of £18mil (could be as low as £13mil! ) could definately trigger a bid. I wouldn't be surprised if five or six clubs go in for him, I mean. . Spurs could even afford him lol. I still expect him to go to United, knowing the genius that is Fergie a deal is prob already tied up and Werder are just trying to finalise a replacement.

McFADDEN: has said many times he 'doesn't like the baggage that goes with the Old Firm – NO CHANCE
BELLAMY: can't believe this story still gets rolled out – he's not coming OK? If someone can show me proof of this toe–curling 'only celtic or cardiff' quote, i'd be very impressed! Bellamy will sign for Spurs, plus Celtic have just signed two strikers – FACT
RAMIS: Could of had him last year, but the club went for 'super–loan' Keane instead – now they've missed the chance – TOO LATE
ST. LEDGER: good chance this will happen – MAYBE
KEANE: enjoyed his time, but he won't be back – NO
SPIRONI: could be a goer – PERHAPS

Only a GOALKEEPER and another DEFENDER will come IF (AND ONLY IF) McGEADY GOES TO MOSCOW.(33)(36)

Ed, more news on the Martin O Neill situation (if you recall it looks like we have the same sourse of information). The McGeady deal is now dead in the water, McGeady had stalled the Moscow deal as much as he could to allow MON to step in and this suited Celtic as they wanted Davies as part of the deal. Anyway, it appears that MON is nearer to the door than expected (I predicted December) and could be gone by the end of the transfer window and so McGeady has decided to go to Moscow. This is down to yet another disagreement with Lerner in the amount available to spend from the Milner deal and now having Paul Faulkner(CEO, you is playing a bigger part at Villa)+ Lerner having to rubberstamp the deal. I'm also told that there is an extreme possibility that Ashley Young is also to be sold and as MON's golden child, this will finally make him walk. Expect this to be Spurs, Liverpool or Inter Milan. Another factor also is that Villa have had a bid of £3m for Carew, MON happy to let him go but Lerner sees Carew more of a fans favourite than both Milner and Young, plus the fact he has been the top scorer for 3 seasons, despite major injury setbacks. Ed– you heard this {editor's note – my info is that MON is just waiting for Lerner to force him out rather than walking out. He did say it is looking like coming to a head and suggested a player being sold over MON's head would be done to force him to quit. He didn't give a name, but I guessed it would have to be Young, it was the only one that would make sense. I was told to the MON out and a new man in before the end of the transfer window was Lerner's plan. It is certainly looking interesting.}(32)(27)

Hi

Just heard

Liverpool are interested in signing

1. M. Diarra from Real Madrid

2. Marco Streller – ??

3. Dragan Mrdja – ??

ed any ideas who 2&3 are and are they any good. Will they make it in the the EPL.

SHEZYPOOL {editor's note – I have heard of Streller, but I can't say I have heard of him as a Premier League quality player. He still plays in Switzerland doesn't he? And, for a striker, it is unusual for them to stay in their homeland if they are any good, though he might be younger than I realise which would explain it. I really don't have a clue who the other guy is, when I get some spare time I will see if I can find out something on him.}

Dragan Mrda is 26, a striker, and he plays for FK Vojvodina. He has a good goal scoring ratio but it is in a poor league. He has scored twice for serbia in 6 games


Streller is 29 and plays for FC Basel. He played for stuttgart for a few seasons and got 9 goals in 55 games(not great). He has played 30 times for switzerland scoring 11 times.

To the person who said

Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal board, sell Fabregas and I quit. Because of a major (unknown as yet) law suit RE: Highbury development. Arsenal are not yet in serious debt but do require in excess of £60 million by next March to service the shortfall in finace income from the Mews development. Fabregas will sign for Barcelona in January moving at end of season to finance this shortfall. Unless Arsenal sold to Kronke by start of 2011/12 season city rumours are that administration will be inevitable. For Pompey last season read Arsenal next. Info from a close mate working for ABN AMRO.

HAHA at least make it the slightest bit realistic ed correct me if im wrong but didn't arsenal say they didn't have to sell cesc because there where in such good financial shape no matter how much anybody threw at them o yea and AW is looking to extend his contract to another long term 1 and the he will more or likly move on to the board after that's up

AFC – {Cesc is hardly going to sign a contract extension is he? Cesc has already said Arsenal are keeping him against his will, plus Barcelona are convinced that they can sign him in January, but certainly next summer, after all Wenger did ask him for one more year so expect him gone this time next season, Arsenal cannot keep him against his will next season as he will have 4 years left on his contract and he can buy himself out of it for just over 20 million!}(12)(35)

TO THE GUY WHO SAID THIS
A lot of rumours flying around regards Ozil signing for Utd, I personally think it may happen as Fergie see's him as a potential replacment for Scholes (who ran the game yesterday). Anyway what I was going to say is Bremen play in the Champions League on Wednesday so it will be interesting to see if Ozil plays, if he does he then becomes cup–tied and Utd may be put off, if he doesn't play I think it's safe to say he is Utd bound. . .

Reports in croatian newspaper 24sata. .Rangers have agreed to pay 5million euros for Jelavic.

No there not, utter tripe! Thats the equivelent of about £96000 a week for a year and they couldn't afford to give boyd a decent wage of around £20 odd thousand a week for 3 years. For cost saving, Rangers main aim, to get rid of boyd and then spend 5m euros + wages on his replacement, don't think so. Just not in the position to do it.

Celtic now have about 12m to spend, all McGreedy money going to the team. Money needs to be spent wisely, i.e. Defenders, defenders, defenders. Not 1m players, real decent 3–4m plus players. Midfield will do well, create chances, Juarez, Ki, Ledley, Brown are quality players, Up front, yeah, Keane or Bellamy would be nice but with Hooper, Rasmussen, Murphy, we'll get enough goals to win the league and push on in the Europa but we need to stop conceding goals more than anything else.

"08 Aug 2010 21:57:18
Cesc Fabregas committing himself to Arsenal publically was the worst possibly news for all Man Utd fans (me being one of them!).

Why??. . Apart from the obvious (him being a quality player), it now seems evident that Barcelona will pick up another target, a target who wants to play for Barcelona, with the quality and guile that all Barcelona players require. . . . . . . . .OZIL.

Ozil initially came out and said his dream is to play for Barcelona. Then when Barca came out and said their target was Cesc, Ozil THEN came out and gave it the old "I dream of playing for Chelsea or Manchester United chestnut". . . . But nothing's happened since? A few rumours of scouting visits, some back house talks and negotiations, etc, etc. Lets be realistic here, Ozil is quality, and it SHOULD be a case of every manager battering down Werder Bremens door for Ozil's signature. . but that's not happened? Why? My opinion is that Ozil's reps have been advised to HOLD any negotiations until Barca know where they stand with Cesc. Now Cesc has come out and publically commited to Arsenal, I feel that it's now only a matter of time before Barca pick up Ozil.

Think about it. . . . He's got Barcelona blueprint all over him in the way he plays. He's relatively cheap for his talent, and is an ideal replacement for when Messi signs for Man Utd (we can all dream!).

Being serious, this transfer makes complete sense to me, and I'd be interested to get your views, along with Ed's.

Cheers,
WF Red Devil"

1. Where will ozil play in the barcelona team? They play 4–3–3 with ibra, messi, villa as strikers and iniesta xavi, busquets in midfield. There is absolutely no chance of him breaking into that team whatsoever. Also they have pedro who can play similar positions. I don't think ozil will want to rot on the bench!

2. Wasn't ronaldo's dream always to play for real madrid? Which team got him first? Man United. Why? Because SAF develops youngsters really well and ronaldo had better chance of breaking into the team of united than madrid. the situation is similar with ozil!

ANOTHER point to add, from red elf, is the Barcelona, again do not need a player a Cesc's position it was a chairman, not sure which position, last "gift to the club, the one who got away" Cesc was told he wasn't good enough for Barcelona and left but now he is good enough the Catalan believe he is one of there's and want him back not because they need a centre midfielder like Inesta(17)(20)

UTD fans have gone crazy again

This guy:

To all you people who claim that SAF won't sign Mesut Ozil, you just have to look at the facts.We tried to sign him when he was at shalke in 2008.We bid for him again in January and Ozil has claimed he is open to a move to United or Chelsea.SAF claims he is happy with his squad but he did say after the final game of last season that we needed to do one or two things.After the chelsea game today he said he went to the fulham game to scout fulham but he could easily have watched a recording of this game, so why would he skip an open training session and travel over 200 miles to watch the game.And finally, Ozil would be available for around 12–15 million pound.If that is not value for money then I don't know what is.
You know you agree!

He could easily have watched Ozil on a recording aswell, many times and could have sent board room members to meet up with ozil. The fact ferguson was there means nothing. He said he needed to do one or two things at the end of the season, SMALLING AND HERNANDEZ.

This guy :

Manutd News

Mesut Ozil looks likey to become a united player as Sir Alex ferguson didn't deny when asked the ? are u intrested in the boy.

"alot of teams are intrested in the boy , we have a good squad and younger players coming through".

Ferguson would of said no straight away or no commment but thier is a hint that he has set sights on getting his final bit of bussiness this summer Mesut Ozil.

Manutd4ever

ERMMMM no that's not what he was hinting at, if anything it's the other way round. He said he was interested in him and that many other clubs were aswell, if he had of said he wasn't, all you man u fans would have gone crazy with dissapointment. So when somebody else signs him SAF can say 'we tried' to keep you happy.

This guy:

. Where will ozil play in the barcelona team? They play 4–3–3 with ibra, messi, villa as strikers and iniesta xavi, busquets in midfield.

There was no obvious place for Fabregas to play but they wanted him and he wanted to go there, I'm sure ozil wouldn't mind it either! And as for your second point i think you'll find man u had an agreement with sporting that they got first choice on players after Querioz (what ever his name was) became asisstant manager.(10)(21)

Usual garbage being branded about from septic fans.

Welcome hasn't had an offer, however he has been given a few more days with an unofficial bounce game organised. 50/50.

One winger to come in, possibly Conway. However Dundee Utd are reluctatnt to do business.

Look for 2 loan signings. No names confirmed but there are a few good possibilties.

4 signings in total by end of window.

We have hated failing miserably over the last 2 years I must agree. Rothen was rotten, what a waste of money. Unlike the wise spending on Loovens, Crosas, Samaras, Stinkel, Wilson, Braonheid, UnFortunate, Chair so sweet. Help me If i have missed anyone.

Was in the bar of the Travelodge by the Britannia stadium on friday evening, and got into a conversation with a guy who said he was Loic Remy's "UK adviser". He said that he was trying to sell him to four or five premier league clubs, but that only two had shown any interest, one in london and "here", I assume meaning Stoke. Don't blame me if it's a wind up, I was bombed! (9)(7)

As i stated yesterday, it is now confirmed that Joe Hart will NOT be leaving the premier league to join Celtic! Mancini has announced that he doesn't want to let the england no1 go and has said only club he would consider loaning him to if he has to is sunderland as they don't give him a premier league threat for the top4 like arsenal would!

Koren also won't be signing for Celtic his Agent has said he wants him to stay in England!

Bellamy won't be a loan deal, if Celtic want him they'll have to cough up the cash and after their disappointing European campaign the likely is he will now join another premier league club like Tottenham!

Hi

Just heard

Liverpool are interested in signing

1. M. Diarra from Real Madrid

2. Marco Streller – ??

3. Dragan Mrdja – ??

ed any ideas who 2&3 are and are they any good. Will they make it in the the EPL.

SHEZYPOOL {editor's note – I have heard of Streller, but I can't say I have heard of him as a Premier League quality player. He still plays in Switzerland doesn't he? And, for a striker, it is unusual for them to stay in their homeland if they are any good, though he might be younger than I realise which would explain it. I really don't have a clue who the other guy is, when I get some spare time I will see if I can find out something on him.}(4)(11)

Arsenal will not sign Pepe Reina, and theo walcott wouldn't want to go to Liverpool.

Instead we will sign Igor Afineev from CSKA Moscow and has already said it would be a dream to join Arsenal, and has been talking to Arshavin and Arsha has said that he wants Igor to become a hero at Arsenal with Arshavin.

We will also sign Gary Cahill or Tasci as cover from centre back.

Arsenal team next year:
Afineev
Sagna Konscielny Vermaelen Clichy
Walcott Fabregas Song Nasri
V.Persie Chamakh
Subs: Mannone, Gibbs, Wilshere, Ramsey, Eboue, Diaby,

Glasgow Celtic Transfer Latest

I have been told that Lennon is trying to include players in any possible transfers

So far I have heard :

McGeady Spartak Moscow £9 000 000 + Pletikosa on Season Long Loan

Crosas Real Valladolid P/E Jacobo

Crosas + £1 000 000 Mallorca P/E Ramis

Loovens Cardiff P/E McCormack

Fortune Valenciennes P/E Tiene

Hooiveld Groningen P/E Granqvist

Rogne Groningen P/E Granqvist

Rasmussen Groningen P/E Granqvist

Hinkel Werder Bremen P/E Niemeyer (Hertha Berlin are favourites though)

Bare in mind these are only rumours but I wouldn't mind letting these kind of players go that are surplus to requirements at Parkhead to get in some names that have been mentioned lately without even touching the transfer kitty.

What do fellow Hoops think?

To the doughnut that wrote this. .

Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal board, sell Fabregas and I quit. Because of a major (unknown as yet) law suit RE: Highbury development. Arsenal are not yet in serious debt but do require in excess of £60 million by next March to service the shortfall in finace income from the Mews development. Fabregas will sign for Barcelona in January moving at end of season to finance this shortfall. Unless Arsenal sold to Kronke by start of 2011/12 season city rumours are that administration will be inevitable. For Pompey last season read Arsenal next. Info from a close mate working for ABN AMRO.

Point 1. How can there be a major law suit, if no one knows what it's about? Point 2. It's not a mews development, have you actually seen it? Point 3. There is only 6 flats left, so why would there be a need for 60 million pounds when we have virtually sold them all? Point 4. Arsenal's debt is serviceable, which means it is index linked specifically to gate receipts, nothing else, therefore guaranteed to be paid. Point 5. ABN AMRO do not & have never been involved in the financing of The Emirates or Highbury Square so wonder why your mate would know anything?.

"08 Aug 2010 21:57:18
Cesc Fabregas committing himself to Arsenal publically was the worst possibly news for all Man Utd fans (me being one of them!).

Why??. . Apart from the obvious (him being a quality player), it now seems evident that Barcelona will pick up another target, a target who wants to play for Barcelona, with the quality and guile that all Barcelona players require. . . . . . . . .OZIL.

Ozil initially came out and said his dream is to play for Barcelona. Then when Barca came out and said their target was Cesc, Ozil THEN came out and gave it the old "I dream of playing for Chelsea or Manchester United chestnut". . . . But nothing's happened since? A few rumours of scouting visits, some back house talks and negotiations, etc, etc. Lets be realistic here, Ozil is quality, and it SHOULD be a case of every manager battering down Werder Bremens door for Ozil's signature. . but that's not happened? Why? My opinion is that Ozil's reps have been advised to HOLD any negotiations until Barca know where they stand with Cesc. Now Cesc has come out and publically commited to Arsenal, I feel that it's now only a matter of time before Barca pick up Ozil.

Think about it. . . . He's got Barcelona blueprint all over him in the way he plays. He's relatively cheap for his talent, and is an ideal replacement for when Messi signs for Man Utd (we can all dream!).

Being serious, this transfer makes complete sense to me, and I'd be interested to get your views, along with Ed's.

Cheers,
WF Red Devil"

1. Where will ozil play in the barcelona team? They play 4–3–3 with ibra, messi, villa as strikers and iniesta xavi, busquets in midfield. There is absolutely no chance of him breaking into that team whatsoever. Also they have pedro who can play similar positions. I don't think ozil will want to rot on the bench!

2. Wasn't ronaldo's dream always to play for real madrid? Which team got him first? Man United. Why? Because SAF develops youngsters really well and ronaldo had better chance of breaking into the team of united than madrid. the situation is similar with ozil!(30)(22)

A good source close to Cardiff City reckons that two of Dave Jones big four season long loan signings are Seyi Olofinjana (Hull) and Craig Bellamy. He says the talk at the club is that Man City will be letting Bellamy go on a supported loan deal allowing him more time with his family in Cardiff. He also told me that Celtic are pushing hard, but Bellamy doesn't see any more of a challenge now than when he was there in 2007.

I'm taking this as being reliable cos the same guy told me last May that Koumas would be at the club this summer. .(28)(30)

Manchester radiostation Key 103 reports talks between Ozil and United have officially broken down because the greedy idiot wants an insane signing on fee.

Chances are he will stay for a big pay day and see out his contract. If he is more interested in money than his career so be it.

A nice car, 80k a week was offered etc.

A FEE WITH THE CLUB WOULD HAVE TO BE ACCEPTED BEFORE DEALINGS WITH THE PLAYER CAN TAKE PLACE, BREMEN WOULD HAVE TO TELL THE WORLD THAT UNITED HAVE MADE A BID SO THAT THEY CAN WARN OTHER CLUBS AND HOLD AN AUCTION FOR HIM!

I BELIEVE UNITED WILL MAKE A BID IN THE NEXT FIVE DAYS, IT WILL BE VERY LOW, AROUND 9–10M, I DO NOT BELIEVE A BID HAS BEEN MADE YET AND I CERTAINLY DO NOT BELIEVE THIS SIGNING ON FEE NONSENSE, HE WOULD AUTOMATICALLY GET 10% OF THE TRANSFER FEE ANYWAY! AND IF HE WAS MONEY ORIENTATED THEN WHY DIDN'T HE JOIN FROM SCHALKE? HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ON LESS THAN 5K A WEEK AT SCHALKE, HE WOULD HAVE WENT TO UNITED AND BEEN ON 50K A WEEK SO I DO NOT THINK HE IS MONEY DRIVEN!(32)(17)

To all you people who claim that SAF won't sign Mesut Ozil, you just have to look at the facts.We tried to sign him when he was at shalke in 2008.We bid for him again in January and Ozil has claimed he is open to a move to United or Chelsea.SAF claims he is happy with his squad but he did say after the final game of last season that we needed to do one or two things.After the chelsea game today he said he went to the fulham game to scout fulham but he could easily have watched a recording of this game, so why would he skip an open training session and travel over 200 miles to watch the game.And finally, Ozil would be available for around 12–15 million pound.If that is not value for money then I don't know what is.

Nufc rumour:

French TV channel Canal+ broadcast comments from Marseille president Jean–Claude Dassier inferring that a loan deal for Ben Arfa to SJP would be finalised this coming week. The player is claimed to have expressed a preference to play in England, rather than take up offers from German and Portuguese sides. A fee of £800'000 for the season, an option to buy fee was not mentioned.

This was aired after the Marseille game today, expect to read in the papers tomorrow!

FACT! the £9.5m from McGeady's sale will go into new signings which will be Ramis or St Ledger not both. Also Expect Ross McCormack(P.E. for Loovrns) and Bellamy(Loan with a view to a £4.5m permanent deal, Desmond will pay the wages as he did in Craigs 1st loan spell) to come in. Lennon was trying for another winger but after McCourts display against Blackburn he is now to replace McGeady.

Cesc Fabregas committing himself to Arsenal publically was the worst possibly news for all Man Utd fans (me being one of them!).

Why??. . Apart from the obvious (him being a quality player), it now seems evident that Barcelona will pick up another target, a target who wants to play for Barcelona, with the quality and guile that all Barcelona players require. . . . . . . . .OZIL.

Ozil initially came out and said his dream is to play for Barcelona. Then when Barca came out and said their target was Cesc, Ozil THEN came out and gave it the old "I dream of playing for Chelsea or Manchester United chestnut". . . . But nothing's happened since? A few rumours of scouting visits, some back house talks and negotiations, etc, etc. Lets be realistic here, Ozil is quality, and it SHOULD be a case of every manager battering down Werder Bremens door for Ozil's signature. . but that's not happened? Why? My opinion is that Ozil's reps have been advised to HOLD any negotiations until Barca know where they stand with Cesc. Now Cesc has come out and publically commited to Arsenal, I feel that it's now only a matter of time before Barca pick up Ozil.

Think about it. . . . He's got Barcelona blue–print all over him in the way he plays. He's relatively cheap for his talent, and is an ideal replacement for when Messi signs for Man Utd (we can all dream!).

Being serious, this transfer makes complete sense to me, and I'd be interested to get your views, along with Ed's.

Cheers,
WF Red Devil(41)(39)

Celtic are not going to sign Craig Bellamy, Joe Hart or Chopra!
None of them want to play in the SPL, bellamy has already said he wants to stay in the premier league and Joe Hart would not leave the premier league as his hope of being England number 1 means he has to play against strong teams which the SPL lacks, only celtic and rangers and lets face it even they would struggle in the premier league as proven by the european campaigns!

Glasgow Celtic Transfer Latest

I have been told that Lennon is trying to include players in any possible transfers

So far I have heard :

McGeady – Spartak Moscow £9 000 000 + Pletikosa on Season Long Loan

Crosas – Real Valladolid P/E Jacobo

Crosas + £1 000 000 – Mallorca P/E Ramis

Loovens – Cardiff P/E McCormack

Fortune – Valenciennes P/E Tiene

Hooiveld – Groningen P/E Granqvist

Rogne – Groningen P/E Granqvist

Rasmussen – Groningen P/E Granqvist

Hinkel – Werder Bremen P/E Niemeyer (Hertha Berlin are favourites though)

Bare in mind these are only rumours but I wouldn't mind letting these kind of players go that are surplus to requirements at Parkhead to get in some names that have been mentioned lately without even touching the transfer kitty.

What do fellow Hoops think?

To the person who said Scott Brown in swap deal for Gio because we need some dig in midfield. Gio has been very influencial in pre–season and has looked really sharp and his versality to play on either wing or upfront can come in very handy for the big season ahead. Scott Brown is injury prone and overrated although he would have been good for spurs 5 years or so back but now we have Wilson Palacios and the new Brazillian boy Sandro coming in to provide 'dig' in midfield and not to mention Tommy H, JJ and O'Hara with youngsters like Dean Parrett and Jake Livermore coming through in the central role.

Spurs to Sign:
Craig bellamy(no chance of joining celtic or cardiff. )
One experienced centre half

If anyone has any feedback or extra news on Spurs by all means come back to this.(19)(46)

I'm the man who first advised Pepe Reina to Arsenal in a straight swap for Theo Walcott just after the World Cup ended.

This tranver rumour started a year ago. Wenger made a bid aprox 23 BP and Liverpool don't have and didn't have any thoughts about selling Reina. Hi didn't sign a 4 year contract, it was a SIX YEARS CONTRACT and a bid aprox 23 million was BEFORE he extended his contrakt. Rafa wanted Walcott for around 10–12 million and considered a exchange with Babel, a straight swap. Reina is worth 25–30 million so this straight swap with walcott is only a STUPID THOUGHT!(19)(60)

QUESTION FOR EDITOR, THIS IS GOING TO BE PRINTED IN TOMORROWS DA!LY M!RROR!

Sir Alex Ferguson took a close up view yesterday of Mesut Ozil, the man he wants to succeed Paul Scholes.

The Manchester United boss watched Fulham's 5–1 friendly win over Ozil's club, Werder Bremen.

United are refusing to meet the £8million asking price for the Germany World Cup star as the 21–year–old's contract expires in the summer.

Ferguson said: "People are screaming for us to spend lots of money, but we'll only buy if it's going to better the squad."

SURELY 8 MILLION IS NOT THE RIGHT FIGURE? CAN YOU IMAGINE UNITED GETTING OZIL FOR 8 MILLION ALONG WITH PAYING JUST 6 MILLION FOR HERNANDEZ AND 7 MILLION FOR SMALLING, THESE PLAYERS FOR A TOTAL OF 21 MILLION WOULD BE GOOD BUSINESS WOULD IT NOT?(53)(31)

Mauro Boselli has convinced Roberto Martinez to pursue the signings of Argentina internationals Cristian Ansaldi and Guillermo Burdisso, he has also convinced these players that they should seriously consider the moves following his successful transfer from Estudiantes.

Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal board, sell Fabregas and I quit. Because of a major (unknown as yet) law suit RE: Highbury development. Arsenal are not yet in serious debt but do require in excess of £60 million by next March to service the shortfall in finace income from the Mews development. Fabregas will sign for Barcelona in January moving at end of season to finance this shortfall. Unless Arsenal sold to Kronke by start of 2011/12 season city rumours are that administration will be inevitable. For Pompey last season read Arsenal next.

Bellamy won't be going to Celtic sorry guys. His family are still here in Cardiff so he won't move anywhere too far away on loan. So if he is allowed to go on loan it will be there or somewhere close. I doubt Cardiff could afford his wages though. I expect he woulda gone to Fulham as Hughes is there now but still that's too far away. I expect city will keep him there. Although Villa could be a good shout if Man City allow it as that will be closer to home for him.(25)(38)

.WEST HAM..
Ed, can you comfirm or give your opinion on the possible signings of Loric Remy and Miralem Sulejmani?
Many People are saying that West Ham have won the race for Remy, but if Sky Sports are correct then Stoke have pulled out of the race for Remy, and there is West Ham and Spurs who are going to talk to him in the next few days.
I beleive the Miralem Sulejmani loan deal is basically done, so that will be a great deal.
If we sign Yakubu(spelling)
of Everton we are mental, he is prone to injury, old and we have a player like him in MaCarthy.

2)Ozil is not Man U's player to give away
3)Ozil is valued at 1015m modric is rated at 2530 million
4)Modric was being rested yesterday and i saw him in the crowd along with Gareth Bale and Jermaine Defoe so he wasnt at Man U(33)(9)

''SAF has said he will not try and sign ozil after the game against chelsea''

not true. in fact, he never said anything of the sort. i believe geoff shreeves said: ''is ozil the sort of player you would be interested in?'' if he wasnt interested in ozil, he would have said no. but he said: ''he is a player that a lot of teams would be interested in. i do have a great group of players and some people don't realise that.'' even richard, jamie and andy assumed that since he didn't formally deny it, it cud be true. obviously fergie wouldn't just say ''ye i want ozil because my team isn't good enough'' or ''ye i am trying to sign ozil. i hope a richer team doesn't find out and snatch him away''

TO THE PERSON WHO SAID THIS:

West Ham are in advanced talks to sign Ajax winger Miralem Sulejmani, he has announced himself that he will join West Ham on a 12 month loan. Avram Grant is also keen to sign a new back up goalkeeper, after taking several 'keepers on trial, he is considering offering a contract to Piet Velthuizen or Algerian goalie, Rais M'Bolhi. West Ham are also targeting an experienced left back as back up to Herita Ilunga. There should not be any more players coming in, except perhaps a last minute loan deal/free transfer on deadline day. Leaving the hammers will be Danny Gabbidon to Blackpool, Valon Behrami to Roma, Freddie Sears and Frank Nouble will be loaned out for the first 3 months of the season to Championship sides. Young goalkeeper, Peter Kurucz will sent out on loan to a league 1/2 side. Jonathan Spector is available for transfer however no sides have shown an intrest so far. West Ham Starting line up (433): Green, Dyer, Reid/Da Costa, Upson, Ilunga, Hitzlsperger, Parker, Noble, Faubert, Sulejmani, Cole, Barrera.

This is all well and good, but I'm not sure you are allowed to play with 12 players mate!
