Why are people dropping small names for manchester united to purchase, the most prized team in england, one of the biggest teams in the world, a team on there way to there 20th league title. We should be targeting people who have already been regonised to play for there country and if we are to purchase 'people with potential' they should be in the international unders (u-21's,u19's ect ect). We should be gettings the stars such as LUCAS MOURA (next best person to neymar) MARIO GOTZE, EDEN HAZARD, JAVI MARTINEZ, JORDI ALBA, THIAGO SILVA, MAT HUMMELS, KYLE WALKER, VAN DER WEIL, YYOUNES KABOUL, HIGUAN, BENZEMA

pub standard ,witha crowd like our league two/three..attendances.
the truth hurts , doesnt it!

There isn't much to put down, as it possibly cant get any worse for the SPL. Especially now Rangers have gone, the sponsors will leave and the SPL dissolving as a result. Anyway Luton will be looking forward to play Celtic some time soon.

Maximus and leicesterlad get a room.

Another Mid table (Boring) finish for Hartlepool United. I think next year we need to get rid of some people to make room on the wage bill and check out the premier league and championship teams for promising youngsters whom are not currently getting any action and are WELL inside our PRICE RANGE. Get a few of them out on loan, have a real good fight for Automatic Promotion, Gain a load of cash for doing so then finally BUY some quality players.

Charlton HAVE signed Anthony Wordsworth on a pre-contract, dont know the amount but it is done

If west ham fail to go up, Carlton Cole might be heading back to CAFC, but wages might be a problem as he is on £40,000k+ at west ham, also same with Tomkins but his wages are lower but Prem teams are rumoured for him

Also Jason Puncheon is a done deal as both Southampton and him are desperate to leave, Jay Rodriguez has been rumoured to go to Celtic but with the state of the SPL he doesnt want to go, he is in the last year of his contract, i know he is a Burnley lad etc etc but he says he wants to go and with CAFC on the UP and having the funds available from the new owners he can join, also being in London is attracting him too, Southampton are rumoured to be interested too but with them promoted they will follow up interest in Celtic's Gary Hooper

I have very reliable sources close to the club ( i speak to players and staff etc ) and all that has been said above has been said to me, also Pixie Lott will be singing at The Valley on saturday as she is a CAFC and West ham fan but obviously CAFC have been promoted ( she also likes CAFC better, not starting an argument lads ;) )

Believable0 Unbelievable2

West Ham will not sell Carlton Cole

Southend midfielder Ryan Hall is firmly on the radar of Shrewsbury Town. Although, he would cost the promoted side a lot of money.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

29 Apr 2012 20:55:42
i believe that although we are still competing at the highest level, the majority of our players are kicking on abit in the age department. Due to this and many other reason i would love to see Sir Alex make these changes in the following 1 or 2 windows (i am aware he does not have a history of buying in January)
IN,
*Ter Stegen + Jack Butland (GK's)(Ter Stegen to challenge De Gea for No1 shirt, Butland loan out straight away)
*Kyle Walker - fast and powerful (england international for many years like Jones and smalling so good to pair all up now) also if spurs dont make the champions league he may want to move to a club has has
*Mat Hummels
*Jordi Alba (alba came from barca academy so may favour them, which case L.Baines or A.Cissokho, Also N.Boilsen had a trail with us other year but choose ajax, should relaunch attempts to bring to old Trafford
*Lucas Moura (Sao Paulo) Next biggest Brazilian prospect to neymar, Need to sort this deal before Madrid as could be our new Ronaldo
*Mario Gotze (signed a new deal with dortmund but if we lure teammates Hummels and Kagawa aswell as other top names we may be able to persuade him to join us rather than the Giants in italy and spain he is said to favour
* Christian Eriksen
*Eden Hazard (many have said nani looks like he may be getting itchy feet to move to a new European giant so i believe that we best get ready)
*Javi Martinez or Yann M'Villa or Kevin Strootman (Currently lack Roy Keane Figure we used to have , anyone of these could bring a similar feel to our midfield
*Philippe Coutinho (Scored 6 goals in 15games for the Brazil Unders, struggled to make way into inter first team, shined in spain, Great buy for future and could settle easy as da silva twins of similar age and also from RIO)
*Willian Jose (sao paulo) scored 5 in 15games for the Brazilian U20's, would be a great player to snap up early as looks like could be a big star one day (purchase and loan back to a team in brazil where he will get regular football) - Also Lucas Piazon of chelsea also came from Sao paulo and looks like a better star so may be a good idea to try and raid him
*Doumbia or Welliton (both fast and strong players whom seem to be goal hungry and have both got a history for netting goals)
OUTS
*lindergaurd
*Kuzack
*amos
*Vidic - as good as vidic is he has been struck with injury most the season and is now the wrong side of 30 and with juventus said to be interested i say we get the best we can to fund a bid for young Hummels. Also i know ferdinand is older but he has done well with evans so i think we should let him retire he so he can help us to give the young CB's experience
*Park - hardly used and kagawa plays similar roles
*Carrick
*Flecther (possibly give him one more season then sell him)
*Giggs retire
*Anderson - Loan to build fitness back
*Berbatov
*owen
*Set up a deal with some clubs to send player out there on loan for a cut price to give experiance or consider making a B-Team like Barca have and everton where planning

Watford are looking to get Thomas Kuszack free from Man U as he is out of contract. They are also interested in signing Paul Taylor. There have been rumours that Millwall want Troy Deeny. I wouldn't sell him ifI was Dyche.

Believable3 Unbelievable3

For last time Taylor is Not going to Watford. Hes going West Brom for 3.5 mill. He would never lower himself to go to Watford

Agree0 Disagree0

3.5 million lmfao what do you think this is football manager? Installments over 48 months so you dont use any of your budget ? lol

I wrote this article and Paul Taylor is not worth 3.5m. More like 3.5k

Nigel clough was left fuming that derby didn't win against
Peterborough after having made 22 chances in the game and scoring 1 and peterborugh having 3 and scoring 1.This has made nigel clough ask the board to instead of bringing in an experienced striker such as Steve howard.But to find a young potiential goal machine.Nigel had already felt this way and had sent a scout to watch St mirren v Dundee united as he is a massive admirer of Johnny russell who he was going to get before Chris maguire was the cheaper option.He's made talks with dundee matching their price by giving 950k and the rest is 3 players.One known to be Connor doyle.

This deal will be completed during the first week so Russell can go to Barbados for pre-season.

This is 100% True

West Ham and Birmingham are both in HUGE financial trouble and will enter administration if they don't win the playoffs. West Ham have a wage bill of £38m currently that will need to be reduced to under £6m for next season. Birmingham will have a transfer embargo placed on them as well as they have account problems and are in debt.

Leicester interested in Jordan Rhodes, Cameron Stewart, Kyle Naughton and a cental midfielder to partner Drinkwater.

Nigel Pearson is fed up with Lee Peltier for his defending of conceding goals and bad positioning.

Cameron Stewart will join Ben Marshall on the wing with Dyer for back up with Drinkwater also being able to opperate on the wing.

Jordan Rhodes will be added for his goals and a future star of the club.

Jermaine Beckford looks set to be sold with Andy King and Paul Gallagher also following with Richie Wellens staying for back-up.

I would just like to say that people need to stop letting the green eyed monster affect them so much. Reading will be the 9th richest club when the takeover is approved by the EPL. To all the Huddersfield fans, we have every chance of signing Jordan Rhodes. We are in the Premier League and have plans to stay there. If he comes to Reading, he will be given a good chance for first team football so whats going to stop him.

Also Gylfi looks an unlikely signing as Hoffenheim value him at £10mil and that proves to be a stumbling block for any transfer.

We have stated all across the media that although we have the funds, we will not spend massively. Fifa fair play rules are coming in and Zingarevich wants to eventually be playing in Europe. Whilst this realistically will not happen for a number of years, we would not jeperdise it by spending money. We will stick with the club ethos and spend wisely.
