I was speaking to a football agent today and he said Steve Davis was going to Everton but Bolton were also in the running. He also said Bolton could make it a triple bid by trying to sign Wylde and Goian. Apparently Celtic are desperate to sell some dead wood and are willing to accept £1 million for Bangura. He was also sure Salihi form Vienna will sign a pre-contract and Celtic have enquired about Heskey.

Gregg Wylde knocked back Bolton in the summer,so did James Forest.Both were on the last six months off there contracts.And were free to speak to them.So your agent pal,cant be much off a agent.A.M

Can't see Jackson going out on loan. He's showing signs of getting his form back. He scored one and had a great assist for Surman against Burnley the other week and he did most of the work in Norwich's first at West Brom, not to mention he was all over the pitch. He's starting to look sharp again and Norwich will need him.

The Hooper to Southampton deal is very much ON ! 7 million plus Jason Puncheon, who I believe is a winger, is thought to be enough to satisfy the Celtic board. And 1 more thing ?「どィャカ
As a Newcastle fan, I find it really annoying and irritating that Celtic fans keep referring to a "£35m price tag" on Gary Hooper purely because he outscored Carroll in the 1 season they were both in the championship ! The fact of the matter is that Carroll was sold for £35million because he scored 11 PREMIER LEAGUE GOALS in 19 games before the transfer to Liverpool in January, and yet not 1 manager saw Hooper worth taking into the premier league at that time ?「どィャカ funny that ! I don't think 20 managers can be wrong ! So Carroll showed he was capable of scoring against the best ?「どィャカ Hooper has shown he is capable of scoring against Inverness.
And one more thing for the ongoing debate, no way are Celtic a good enough team to be top of the championship which is where Southampton find themselves now, so Celtic are the bigger team understandably, due to the fact that a whole country is divided between 2 teams in a tin-pot league, where as English people are divided between dozens ! ?「どィャカ but Southampton are certainly the better team.

End of saga ... lets move on !

Reply to above.
Go buy a brain,Carrol has been a total flop ,Hooper has scored against good European teams,so go and pull your head out your a***

Er, shut up.. hooper is a class striker you muppet, he is quite clearly better than carroll considering carroll has done jack all at liverpool, hence why they want to sell him, hooper would walk into premier league teams, and celtic are easily good enough to be at level southampton are, if not higher!

What a clown!

I dont think ur a Newcastle fan hooper is a better player than carrol no doubt to score 40 odd goals in 2 seasons in the championship is gd carrol is a donkey and Celtic would win the championship by at least 15 points that's the end

Finally someone talking sense ...

End of saga moved on....no i am just starting here.
southampton better than celtic your're having a laugh not a chance in earth is that statement anywhere near true. and btw obviously managers can be wrong...liverpool were wrong to touch carroll...fact.
neil lennon made a joke about him being worth 35mil get over it.
although if hooper went to prem right now...he would score more in half a season than carroll has scored in the last calender year.

and btw...I am a rangers supporter bite on that

Well said mate

No way are you a rangers fan, you wouldnt let this irritate you if you were. Poor old celtic fan. Still hasnt accepted that SPL is the joke of european leagues. People have more interest in most other european leagues than they do the SPL, why? Because its full of sh*t teams, and only has 2 worthy enough to call themselves championship level. If anything, stop whining and consider yourself lucky they let cr*p like you into the European competitions

Hi i'm a saints fan and find it highly amusing how fans from all over the country bicker like a bunch of school kids about how bigger and better their club is , and how their best player is to good for any other team. Does it really matter who slags off who about how better they are and how much bigger they are at the end of the day if a club wants a player and they offer enough money they are going to get that player,So if your going to slag anyone off slag your own board off for letting it happen in the first place.

I would have taken this post a bit more serious if it had come from any of the BIG teams in Engalnd, but Newcastle? come on.
This is the same bunch of fans that were lookingbthier owner and manager out not too long ago..... Newcastle are also rans, always have been always WILL be!
Andy Carroll is rubish a plain and simple fact, the ONLY reason Liverpool paid £35m is the money generated form TV revenue and the sale of Torres... Newcastle are a smaller club than Celtic. FACT.

Saints fan here: No way will Southampton spend that much on one player. Hooper is no doubt a good player, but we won't buy him at that price. We won't smash our record transfer fee not while we are still in the Championship. If we go up and Hooper is available, this figure might be more realistic

If celtic or rangers got half the money yous lot get from tv money we would run a mock in england your pathetic association can see that and thats why they are refusing us entry because they dont want a scottish team winning the english premier. We both have a far bigger fan base than almost every team in england and also have well bigger stadiums so dont come on here and say about tin pot league when its your fa whos scared to let us in your pishy league

I think hes spot on celtic would even finish in the play offs and as for andy carroll liverpool dont play the right system to get the best out of caroll hooper is a pretty good player but not prem class unfortunatly

Finally some1 knows what their talking bout

The Championship has become a much more competitive league than the SPL simply down to the tv money involved. Celtic are undoubtedly the bigger club in terms of history and support but that counts for nothing nowadays- its is all about the money and he will move if the money is right for celtic

Aw definitely mate, I mean Carroll's scored.......... aw wait.... Well, still, there's his brilliant hold up play which......... aw wait.... Ah who cares, Dalglish must value him with all the games he's starting.......... aw wait........... Carroll is a dud. He's moved onto the next level above Newcastle, to a team which themselves are struggle to compete for even a European place.
That £35m fee has yielded 4 league goals, thats £8.75m per goal.
Hooper's fee of £2m has yielded 32 league goals, that's £60,000 a goal. Do the math mate.

Pishy league grow up pal you sound like a desperate man if its that pishy why harp on about joining it the spl is a joke wake up and smell the coffee you will never join and will continue to flounder in a go nowhere League which will result in a co efficent for europe thats apar with finland

The main reason the Old Firm won't be allowed into the English Premier League is the fact they're Scottish. If they wanted to play in England they'd have to work there way up, same as Swansea have, and Cardiff, to a lesser extent.

Personally I think hooper is a very average player, plying his trade in a poor league. I'm a Norwich fan but have lived in Edinburgh for 4 years and have seen slot of Scottish "football" and I have to say the competition to Celtic and rangers is dismall!

I honestly dont think Southampton are a better team than Celtic. If you look at every position I think Celtic are better. Yer, the Scottish league isnt that standard than down south. But 2 wrap it up Celtic are a better team, a far bigger club in a week league. Or a weaker league than other.

We will never get him. We have like 4 million let alone 7. Just because you supports the club doesnt mean you have to make up rubbish to get yourself excited.

Celtic and Rangers would be mid-table championship teams, Fact! Look at Birmingham, a championship side outdoing Celtic in the Europa League by 4 points!

35m for Carroll, that is a true crime!

No matter how big and huge Septic are they play in a s**tty little league against nobodies. Thats a fact and it aint going to change any time soon so get used to it.

Think you should have a wee look at our record against your so called "best league in the world "before you make any comparisons

Is the english premiership not a tin pot league it is dominated by man united take away skye money and the league would collapse

Carrol not playing in the right system lol Heard it all now!....his aim is too score goals and unless someone is moving them goal post lol....just admit it he is a donkey and could not hit a cow in the arse with a banjo,
Hooper is a finisher and got far more presence in a penalty box than Carrol will ever have.

The fact that this is more believeable than unbelieveable to the majority of the public shows how deluded you Celtic fans are about your club ... greater numbers doesn't mean greater footballers!

Oh it was a joke by neil lennon was it?! cus the rest of Celtic seems to take it for gospel and literally believe that he is GENUINELY worth "35 million"!!

Lets be honest the only reason why celtic and rangers have a big fan base is because all the other scottish teams are crap, so half the population is split between the two teams. Neither player is worth £35million. Honestly if you were in Hoopers position what would you do keep playing in an uncompetitive league where you play one good team all season or play for an up and coming club like southampton who could be in the prem next year? The prem being the best league in the world?

To the Newcastle fan...are you deluded? Southampton are at the top of the Championship due to the enormous revenue both leagues create per season whereas we generate money through players and our brand, so how can you come to the opinion Southampton are better??! it has no foundation! That's like saying if you's started in the SPL from scratch and didn't have the revenue you's would be as good as Dunfermaline you moron!

And as for the prem teams like yourself buying players....it's for the money nothing more nothing less but pure greed, we have the opportunity to offer European football season in season out to players so why sit festering at teams like Newcastle? get a grip I know where I would rather play.

I'm going to attempt to clear up the Hooper debate Carroll debate with some common sense.

Gary hooper is not worth £35m, far from it, however this is also the case with Carroll. The reason why carroll's fee was so high was that liverpool had only a few hours to replace fernando Torres, so naturally the fee was inflated. Also Carroll had scored a good amount of EPL goals, something that Hooper hasn't done(however in sure he will of he makes it to the premiership)

I have information from a source within the club at Celtic and as of 13:00 todt no bid has met Celtics £10m asking price. However this is not to say that Celtic won't accept a bid lower than £10m but that's Lennons valuation.

I can't see Celtic budging more tags £1m so I can't see this deal happening.

Anne Williams has today taken a major step in her battle to get justice for her son Kevin after over 100,000 people signed an e-petition.

Kevin was just 15 years old when he died at Hillsborough and his mother launched the online e-petition as part of an appeal into overturning the accidental death verdict placed on him.

Today's developments mean that a government debate could now take place, looking at the possibility of a new inquest into Kevin's death.

Mrs Williams thanked everyone who had shown their support.

"Thank you everyone, honestly, from the bottom of my heart for signing and supporting me," she said.

"It's been 23 years of living with lies and I cannot go away until I get justice for Kevin."

Two days ago 35,000 names were on the petition. Then, in a remarkable forty eight hours, that amount trebled to take the count up to the required figure of over 100,000 signatures.

Anne said: "I just can't believe it. The way it was going down last night and then came the support.

WELL DONE ALL FOOTBALL FANS - THANKS

c) believed a word of most of these rumours!

However, I can relay from a trustworthy source at the Emirates (the pie-maker) that we're selling Arshavin, Walcott, Chamakh, Almunia and Squillachi... plus we're pawning the bronze statues so that we can buy Emile Heskey

"Brighton have signed goal keeper David Gonzalez. Source inside club has confirmed and will be announced Monday."
____________________________________________
Another megalomaniac who seems to enjoy inflating his own self-esteem by pretending to be well connected or well informed. It is now 7pm and no such announcement has been made.

I'm not saying we wont sign this guy, by all accounts in the media, he is training or on trial with us, but I am always sceptical when people claim to have "sources".

I really enjoy football banter and people talking through their shirts, its a good laugh. But does anyone else find that there's basically 3 types of people who post on these kind of forums. A) Real football fans who post realistic speculation regarding potential targets/ or players they would like to sign based on genuine criteria. B) People who unearth a bit of actually media reported activity and then post it on here under the "rumour" category, hoping to appear well informed to less scrupulous researchers. and then my pet peeve, C) The absolutely delusional, thoroughly immature individuals who invent stories and then try and add credence to speculative claims by pretending they are connected or informed or, in extreme cases, relatives or friends of players/managers/coach's etc. I'm still trying to get over my buddy a week or so ago that claimed he was a scout for West Brom! Lol, ridiculous.

Lets just keep it real people!

Regards, The Realist Seagull
Can't really believe you have spent time writing this long essay! Nothing else better to do perhaps! Let them get on with it!

-----------------------_

Sorry signed latter than expected. Confirmed today. By the way source at club was a player so not a meglamaniac just someone with knowledge of a signing.

There seems to be an awful lot of bad blood on here between Celts and Saints fans over this Gary Hooper business.
Fellow Tims, Hoops himself has said for the last week or so he's happy, but Southampton are obviously keen, so if they do come back in over the next couple of days with an improved offer as the press is reporting, don't be surprised to see him go. 2m tripling or quadrupling in 18 months is not bad business and plenty of that will be reinvested. Personally I'd love to see him stay till at least the end of the season and help us win the league, and IMHO, I think he will stay, then have a crack at the Premier League.
Saints fans, stop slagging your number one signing target off for his "poor" record up here, yes we may play in an inferior league, but admit it, while you have a great club and the history to match it, in recent years you, like us, ain't exactly been at ye forefront of things. If you get this boy, be excited, he'll score your club all the way to the premier league next year and 6 or 7 million will look like a steal.

As a Norwich fan i am telling you we are not going to sign any silly people like lukaku. Your all school kids who play FIFA and say the first name that comes into your head, then presume they will sign for us. Have you thought how much money lukaku is on at chelsea and how much the fee would be to get him etc. If we do get Howson we will sign a GK on loan. Then thats us finished until summer.
