Nigel Clough has stated that the
Reason for forcing the Shackell sale
was to be able to fund his plans of
having 2 reliable players in every
posistion.Currently Derby are without

Left Centre Back
Left Centre Back Cover
Left Back Cover
Right Midfield Cover
Striker
Left Centre Midfield Cover
Right Centre Back

These will be filled by these players

Harry Worley-Oxford United
Krystian Pearce-Notts County
Luke Garbutt-Everton
Jon Taylor-Shrewsbury Town
?
Andrew Tutte-Rochdale
Karleigh Osborne-Free Agent


I Dont Cloughs plans for a striker
whether there is one even being
bought.

But the first 3 names will be bought
using the Shackell money and the
last 4 using the Bailey and Davies
money.

These are all within our Budget and
from i gather all those players are 25
and under.

I'd be suprised if someone who can't get in the Oxford team in League Two would be interesting Derby!

yeovil are in trouble with the FA


A call today from Yeovil Town FC CEO Martin Starnes confirmed that it was impossible for Yeovil to travel to the Crown Meadow.
Yeovil Town have today breached the FA contract which took Curtis Haynes Brown to Huish Park.

Written in the official FA Contract as part of the transfer was that Yeovil Town Football Club had to bring a first team squad to the Crown Meadow for a pre season friendly prior to the start of the 2012/13 season.

Martin Starnes stated over the telephone that it was impossible to bring a side and used the reason that the manager had been changed since the original deal,even though Gary Johnson was installed as first team manager I believe on the 9th January 2012, and the club knew that the game had to be played as agreed. Although I cant see how that makes any difference as the deal was done club to club and not via managers.

Martin Starnes did offer to send up a youth side if that was acceptable to us.!!!

The matter will now be handed over to the Football Association first thing in the morning to deal with.

Chairman

Not a rumour just not sure where else i could get this off my chest. i find it ironic that goal line technology has now been approved by blatter as england should have conceded that goal. but when it was lamps in the world cup blatter showed no interest in it. that guy is a first class idiot {Ed003's Note - The process to look into it started before the Euro's, but I do agree with you about him and worry more about his probable replacement to be honest lol }

Hi ed(s)
Are there any teams in league 1 and league two that have not been linked to signing Izale Mcleod this close season.
He is definitely this years 'hot player' with 'sightings' and reported 'in talks' coming from everywhere in the country.
On this note maybe you could have a section on most mentioned players.
And in an attempt at reverse psychology to get the player to sign for us
There is no way on earth that Izale will sign for Tranmere (watch him sign tomorrow now) {Ed003's Note - It makes a change from the stupid Akinfenwa ones,at least with Mcleod the posts are plausable}

OK, Buttner update, from what I can understand from dutch reports is that saints are still very likely to sign the player, Fulham have appeared to have pulled out of negotiations. bid have been made of up to 4 mil by Saints, QPR and Werder Bremen. The player wants to join saints over the other clubs and with Vitesse looking to sell the player the bids will likely be accepted, a three year deal is in place already for Buttner at St. Mary's once a fee is agreed!

Has just been reported this morning in today's Lancashire Evening Post that PNE manager GRAHAM WESTLEY has told IAN HUME (and a number of other players) that they are not coming back to the club and he doesn't see them in his plans for the coming season. Only the 12 new signings and some fringe youth players were allowed into the training ground and the LEP reported that WESTLEY had text the players to tell them not to bother returning to the club.

NEIL MELLOR & CLARK CARLISLE have both Tweeted to say WESTLEY is way out of order.

Cant see Norwich being in for this guy. Stats dont fill you with much inspiration and doesnt sound any better than is currently on the boooks.

Just to clear it up, Jon Stead has not handed in a transfer request, that is all rubbish. the only talks that include stead at present are with Leeds United, as City and Leeds are trying to sort a deal where Stead goes one way and Ross McCormack goes the other. this is also why Jon still has only 12months left on his contract as City are not willing to offer a new contract untill they are sure Jon is in there plans. (very close source) and yes it is Jon's dream to finish his playing career at Huddersfield but as we all no dreams do not always come true.

Whats really worrying is that Reading

now linked with and favourites to sign
Danny SImpson. They are also after DAME N'Doye
and I guess Lukaku is next

Ahaha We were after N'doye ages before West Ham. FACT. Never seen West Ham linked with Simpson FACT. Lukaku is off to Stoke and was never going to go to West Ham or Reading (who were never interested).

05 Jul 2012 12:14:12
West ham transfer dealings have got me really worried. My biggest concern is that they don't underestimate the minimum amount they can get away with spending again. We don't have to spend a great deal but there does need to be a certain level of investment to avoid a season of frayed nerves like last time. Going down this time was bad, but go down again and we are f*cked. Already we have QPR and Reading with greater spending firepower than us (how does that sound?), and likely Forest and Leeds are about to join them. Add that to the new financial fair play rules in the championship and it's become a tarpit to get out of.

As it stands, we have 4 signings in, and only one actually improves the team from the one that finished third in the championship.
Henderson and Jussi are both weaker than what we had (Jussi may once have been better than Green, and Henderson may one day be better than him, but in the here and now we're actually weaker there). McCartney simply extends his contract, so that's a neutral change - it's the same as what we had. Only Diame has actually seen us strengthen.

Long way to go, but the salary cap speech yesterday doesn't exactly put my mind at ease.
And more and more targets are slipping
through our fingers!

that they are willing to spend money the
