would really like to see robbie brady at sheffield united. a winger for man utd, played for hull on loan last season. he playe 39 times last season for hull but only scoring 3. scored 6 in 10 in the ireland under 21 team. he sound a very good young player. a possible signing for wilson as quinn's future is looming. what to you think? good potential signing or not?

charlton have signed salim kerkar for free to add depth in midfield
charlton also signed lawrie wilson for 400k a very good signing as we had no back up right back and he should bring the best out of chris solly
jordan cook also a good signing as he has good potential in a year he will be a very good player for us
charlton still need another centre back and henry muggeridge could be the answer with the added bonus of being free
but an attacker is needed aswell so sam baldock for 1.5m would be the answer he would be the marquee signing and would see charlton rise from 14th place to 11th a big difference
leon clarke will go for 150k
paul hayes will go for 125k
that should free up about 8 to 9000 a week in wages
if the addicks can beat birmingham and leicester then we should be able to do even better than 11th

With Simon Cox going to Nottingham Forest for a approx £2.5 million (figure from a post on NFFC page), does anyone know if Swindon had a sell on clause in his transfer to WBA? Cheers

Swindon should get some money out of the transfer

How about dos santos for a quality striker? Been class at the olympics and never played by spurs. Was Chris hughton watching the olympic final? Peralta scored 2 against Brazil and plays in Mexico. Wouldn't mind one of their defenders either. Their left back was class

Preston will announce the signings of Joel Byrom and Akpo Sodji in the next few days.
Byrom on a 2 year deal.
Sodji on a 1 year deal.

Rumours are that Wycombe have accepted a bid from Preston for striker Stuart Beavon and the striker will not be in the squad for Wycombe's pre season game tonight.

Wolves put 20 million price tag on fletcher. This has probably got to be more ridiculous than carrol at 35m!

Hi all fellow lfc fans and eds and macca:)

Borini n Allen in- 2 great signings IMO. Allen will be the new alonso and borini you can see from game in Europe he looks quality and links well with gerrard, Suarez, etc.....

As for rumoured signings

Dempsey- fulham over pricing him, think this will fade out now.

Tello- personally I would welcome this signing, great player and would fit the fast flowing football.

Godin- rubbish- agger blows him outta the park, why sell one of your best assets, KEEP AGGER lfc!!!! ( fans should be protesting against sale)

Ramirez- we should be concentrating on signing this player- 100%- if you pay money for hendo n downing n Carroll, surely Ramirez is worth the 15 million regardless of the ins or outs, this player I believe would smash it at lfc.

Walcott - would flourish under Brendan and the new look lfc, 15 mill over priced compared to what you would get from Ramirez for 15 million.

Eds any news on the major loan signing from spain( under 25 ) I believe and a star???

All other signings should do one, we want Ramirez, in 1st, tello, and the major loan signing, also maybe Walcott, get rid of cole n Carroll for funds..........

Thanks kj red :)

Can anybody explain why players like koumiss with plenty of ability (albeit with a questionable attitude) take a year out of football when thy only have short careers anyway ?
I mean surely you would rather play for a club like Tranmere on low wages with get out clauses in your contract than do nothing ??
Looking forward to the new season, ronnie building a decent squad, shame so many missing Chesterfield next week !

What is it with clubs from lower leagues thinking there players are worth 10 of millions of pounds Jordan Rhodes a prime example a player who is worth 3/4millions at most yet hudderfield want 10 and Wilfred zaha is so palace say is worth 10 wolves are also guilty of in flating prices Fletcher not worth more than van persist and Jarvis ain't worth more than Sinclair. Yet wolves want 10 to 15 mil for each player this is from steam relegated from the league {Ed044's Note - these are the prices the clubs feel it will take for them to part with their best players! if thats the case then so be it if other teams are not interesed then dont make offers for the players}

Have we all forgotten about Jackson he played great the few times he actually played last season and he's got pace that could be injected into the match and would be a great combination upfront with holt and I think our squad is strong enough to stay clear of the drop this year, most of you just want to see new faces. CH will spend when he needs too.

Matt Phillips to sign for Southampton next week watch this space.

Believable1 Unbelievable4

Karl Oyston may not buy much, but the one thing he does not do is sell and Matt Phillips and Thomas Ince have commited themselves to Blackpool. So, the saints who Blackpool drew 2-2 and thrashed 3-0 last season will be heading straight back down

Players Southampton are looking to bring in:- RW- Matt Phillips/Jermaine Lens. CB- Scott Dann/Christopher Berra. GK-Adam Bogdan/Jason Steele. (They are obviously not going to get them all, and also I think people are underating Dann a bit too much, one player can not make a team get relegated, there are ten other players on the pitch)
