Marc Richards high top of the Rotherham United target list if Chesterfield agree to a deal. Possibly a swap on the cards. Fact

Can see this happening, their welcome to him he has been a flop here.

Swap for who?

Evans wants Richards down to Cook but RUFC have a huge squad and good players in every department. Suspect Nards or Pringle

Rumours that end in the word 'FACT' are total bull! FACT!

Would hope this rumour is true. Rotherham are welcome to the skeggy Donkey.

So we are going to swap either our top scorer or our most creative midfielder who's just signed a new 2 and half year deal for a striker who's now past his best? don't think so somehow. More likely we'll take Richards to get his massive wages of your wage bill to free funds up for chezzie to sign new players

I think getting Rico off to Rotherham and off the wage bill is probably 100% right. Evans is a huge admirer of Richards

lazio defender mobido diakite may join liverpool this summer after the player stalled on talks with napoli



10 Apr 2013 19:14:01

10 Apr 2013 19:12:26
Liverpool are hoping to conclude a double deal from ajax this summer with defender toby aldeweireld and play maker christian erikssen who only has 1 year remaining on his deal

Toby aldeweireld will be joining Fulham and we are looking to seal a deal for christian erikssen too. {Ed034's Note - no they won't be lol you have got bob hope with either

Rumour Submitted



10 Apr 2013 19:32:23
harry redknapp to westham in the summer. will make moves for remy, samba and crouch

Big Sam will be there next season.

Sounds plausible but it would be hard for W Ham to sack Big Al as he has achieved what was required

11 Apr 2013 21:41:16
That's the sort of rumour to get Rosie's tail wagging



10 Apr 2013 19:31:45
carlton cole will refuse a new deal at westham and move across london to fulham.

10 Apr 2013 20:31:49
He wouldn't make the bench for Fulham's reserves

What a loser you r carlton cole is a very good player just needs more help around him its the way bfs plays doesn't suit him needs players around him

11 Apr 2013 13:44:53
. yeah, so I guess you're saying that he'll be challenging for Berbatov's starting place then, huh?

Cole is good at holding the ball up, so would be a good partnership



10 Apr 2013 19:30:59
sergio canales is moving to arsenal in the summer



10 Apr 2013 19:30:24
wba will move for tottenhams jake livermore this summer.

Hes masssively overrated



10 Apr 2013 18:50:55
Hooper to Norwich in a 8 million plus Holt bid, as he will NOT sign a new contract and Celtic will want to cash in.

Putting 'NOT' doesn't mean its true, holt not good enough for celtic and hooper doesn't want to go to norwich

I don't think so you had your chance in jan and blow it and you won't get 8 mill for him now only 5 mill tops lo so in ya dreams. lo

Lol 8million. there's no way you're getting that much off us now! 2milliion plus holt.

With the standards in the spl being so poor, Holt would destroy the league with his eyes closed

12 Apr 2013 12:54:45
Get a grip, £8mill asking price doesn't drop to £2mill over a couple of months! Hooper will be leaving for around £5mill but expect sunderland/newcastle to be in the running. There will be no players included, especially Holt. doesn't fit into the celtic signing policy, not good enough and certainly wouldn't rip the SPL up.




10 Apr 2013 18:41:22
Arsenal- Christian Benteke
Aston Villa- John Guidetti
Chelsea- Gonzalo Higuian
Everton- Tomer Hemed
Fulham- Thibaut Courtois
Liverpool- Ashley Williams
Manchester City- Alexis Sanchez
Manchester Utd- Luka Modric
Newcastle United- Wilfried Bony
Norwich City- Ricky van Wolfswinkel
QPR- Jamie O'Hara
Reading- Billy Sharp
Southampton- Scott Sinclair
Stoke City- Darren Bent
Sunderland- Geromel
Swansea City- Romelu Lukaku
Tottenham- Alvaro Negrado
West Brom- Adam le Fondre
West Ham- Joleon Lescott
Wigan- Aiden McGeady

Villa have Benteke, Bent, Drennan, Weimann, Burke, Agbonlahor.
Why do they need another option?
They need a defender!

11 Apr 2013 00:18:42
Jesus, you musta been bored son, long did it take you to make that up?

Surely you got to get at least 1 right

Can't see Bent joining a soon to be championship side

Not sure about others but l would definitely take lescott as a hammer and bony would be great for our club

Yeah he got the wolfswinkle one right because he's already signed for Norwich.

I personally think about 8-11 of them are right!

I notice the rumoured value to Liverpool for Williams is up to £12 million from £8 million, I suspect it will cost them a bit more than that. Personally I don't see more than 6 of this list ever reaching serious bids

Tottenham get benteke
West ham get bony
Everton get Sinclair
Villa get Lescott
Sunderland get mcGeady and bent

Other than that your about right

Benteke won't go to Tottenham he'll go to arsenal or someone

I'd love Courtious at Fulham, not going to happen though!



10 Apr 2013 18:00:27
watford will sign vydra, pudil, abdi, ekstrand and anya at the end of the season

And no Battocchio? Realy disappointed!

And Cassetti, and Neuton, and Hogg.

Apparently hogg will not sign when his loan expires


11 Apr 2013 10:05:51
Hogg is not on loan

Of course, they'll sign Battocchio and Hogg's not on loan with us - he's our player.

Hogg is a Watford player however if they make the Prem the likelyhood is as he will abe a squad player at best he'll probably will be sold

You're right, Villa have already recalled him.

I hear GFZ wants to turn Hogg's loan to a permanent move.

11 Apr 2013 17:14:37
Loving the Hogg jokes on here. It's been going on for years now.

Having a ok season and I believe Zola will give him an extended contract but will only be a squad player if we go up

Can't see Pudil being offered a contract, and Ekstrand and Vydra will only sign if we gain promotion. Neuton will return to Udinese, but Cassetti will be loaned back for another season

Hogg is definately on borrowed time at Watford.

I heard that if Watford go up they will loan out Jonathan Hogg to Aston Villa as they will need able championship players.



10 Apr 2013 17:54:36
Swindon Town will sack manager this weekend and he will be replaced. Talk of Colin calderwood is B/S.
However Steve cottrill might be a good bet. Fans upset as within in McDonald taking over they have dropped from 2nd to 6th and the existing manager does not have a clue

Matt Ritchie was sold and he was almost single handedly keeping the team up there so not all the gaffers fault

Cottrill would be a fantastic choice

Swindon will not be sacking there manager. swindon will have new owners by the time the new season starts in august. it will be left to new owners to appoint there own manager. the reason this consortium took over was because andrew black wanted a quick exit, talks are ongoing. expect an announcment in late june.

Another Dreamer, if true facts then ass wipe>>>

I hope and pray Swindon do not go up as with the dodgy board we have we will be the wiping boys of the Championship!. No money average players and a clueless management team. Bring back Maurice Malpas!.

I really hope so MAC is not the long term answer for the club a v Poor app from the board in the first place
they had a great chance to go up atomac this season they won, t get a better chance. at least a play off place is deserved after what has gone on this season.

11 Apr 2013 13:43:52
A play off place is only deserved according to what happens on the pitch, if Swindon finish outside the top 6 then they don't deserve a play off place. I'm a Tranmere fan, and we could well feel that having led the division for most of the season that a play off place is the least we deserve, but the fact is that if we don't achieve one then we didn't do enough to merit one. Feels unfair, but that's the way it is!

Well said to the Tranny fan, we only deserve a play off spot if we win one and with KMAC that now looks less and less likely. Tranmere Led the league for 70% of the season, but on current form they are where they are.



10 Apr 2013 17:21:18
Mohammed Fellah is set to join Norwich City on a free transfer from Valerenga at the end of the season, after the player and the club agreed to personal details yesterday.



10 Apr 2013 17:08:10
notts county have taken a step closer to signing bradley wright phillips with kiwomya saying he has been speaking to ian wright on the phone he didn't reveal to much but said the talk was positive and with bradley saying he wanted to come as part of the judge deal in january and again before the game at brentford its clear he wants to sign the source for this is tv radio nottingham



10 Apr 2013 16:53:52
Jernade Meade and Daniel Boateng of Arsenal are both summer free transfer targets for Notts Forest



10 Apr 2013 16:04:55
Heard on the grapevine that Cloughie (like some fans. ?) is getting tired of some (One particular) 'out of form' strikers and is considering 'resting' them for the Blackburn game. see Sammon warm the bench and Derby pair Ward and Martin up front, with Brayford moving to right midfield, Coutts and Hendrick in centre, Brayson out left (not left out) and Freeman staying at RB.

Derby seem relatively happy with defence, need a CB but Cloughie wants a striker priority. have heard rumours of a summer move for Jamie Mackie, Ross McCormack or Darren Pratley. ?

Clough has not become tired with Sammon. With Sammon in the team this season we have scored more goals than any other season under clough. He will play vs Blackburn and then on Saturday we can come back to this rumour and look at the egg on your face. Sammon might not score much himself but Ward Robinson Tyson all have improved goal to game ratios when playing with Sammon.

Clough does want a striking addition, someone who can score alongside connor, it is likely to be:

Martyn Waghorn
Chris Martin
Johnny Russell
Noel Hunt
Will Grigg
Paddy Madden
Tom Pope
Simeon Jackson

This is a load of Bull.
Why would we sign any of these strikers. are you a Derby fan?
Clearly you are just trying to stir romours.
Sammon will be playing this weekend. {Ed034's Note - are you kidding. waghorn, grigg, martin and Jackson would be excellent addition in the summer for derby

Any one of these players would improve Derby's strikeforce!

Won't be Grigg (prem interest) and I doubt it would be Hunt or Jackson. Martin is all but done in my opinion but I'd love to see Madden or Waghorn come in too.

I am the second poster who stated the striker shortlist.

That shortlist is very realistic with the improved budget derby will have in the summer as Nigel has stated he does not have to spend as much on young players from lower leagues anymore as those players are abundant in the under 18s and under 21s, and flourishing.

It is widely known derby are getting 3 or 4 experienced players this summer.

A Centre Half, A Striker, A Left Back and potentially a winger.

The Centre Half is likely to Alex Baptiste on a free, the left back Craig Forsyth (100k-200k from Watford)

That leaves a BIG budget for a striker. Now this is a big budget in Derby terms, we are a less affluent club in the championship so don't expect us to pay what the likes of Leicester and Cardiff can but we will be able to afford a good striker.

Darren Pratley is not a striker, he's not even an attacking midfielder. (would be good addition to our centre mid ranks mind) {Ed003's Note - Just to add to the thread,Baptiste had an offer for him from Stoke in January plus I think it was Cardiff and Leicester that were turned down aswell,personally I think he will choose a Prem club.}

Boo Ed003 :) I sadly agree we don't have the same clout as our nearest and derest in the E. Mids. I do hope we do get proven quality in the summer.

12 Apr 2013 13:16:33
Clough is targetting specifically two striking players who are out of contract this summer, the only factor being paying higher wages instead of a transfer fee.

Martyn Waghorn and Kevin Davies

also chasing Walsalls' Will Grigg having given up hope of raiding Inverness for Billy Mackay.

(Theo Robinson also returning to club pre-season! He might be out of favour now but still has a year on his contract I believe and may well come into Cloughie's plans as an bench impact player?)

Jonny Metgod being recruited to assist in capture of Chelsea dutch u-21 starlet Nathan Ake on season long loan.

Sammon started vs Blackburn on your bike.



10 Apr 2013 15:44:51
Blackpool Manager PAUL INCE was at PRESTON NORTH END last night watching NORWICH loanee goal keeper DECLAN RUDD.

RUDD is up for sale in the summer and INCE see's him as a future No1 for BLACKPOOL.

Declan rudd as said he will join preston if he is let go by Norwich city

Good keeper but we don't need one

Does using capital letters for "whole" words mean that you are shouting at us or you think we have bad eyesight?
By the way Ince wouldn't know a good keeper if he fell over one. Very poor cv
in football management so far and has a lot to learn.

Very good CV actully. Has a 40 somthing % win rate. You can't say that's bad and he's doing a brillant at the moement.

I cannot remember Rudd saying he will join PNE

Norwich are going to sell him and his sale value is going to be way out of the reach of the club.

I saw Ince along with quite a few other scouts watching Rudd last night although some where there for Hayhurst

Please can you confirm his win rate % as Blackburn Rovers manager?
Also how many games in a row did he lose before Ince was sacked at Notts County?

Did you speak to Ince and he said he was there just to watch Rudd?
And did the other scouts tell you they were there to check on Hayhurst?

My mate, an Oldham fan, was at Deepdale last night. He said he was sure he was sitting near a bloke who looked like Alex Ferguson hiding under a wooly hat. He said he did not have the nerve to ask him who he was there to watch.

11 Apr 2013 01:11:24
rudd as said if he leaves Norwich he is willing to join preston it was on pneplayer

WILLING to join and WILL join are 2 completely different things. And if he is a really good goalie why on earth would he go down to Div 1

I doubt the scouts were there to watch anybody else.

Most of the PNE squad were either free's or let go by their own teams and are heading towards the end of their careers.!

Rudd has the ability to play at a much higher League than PNE and I would imagine Norwich will be looking for a nice payday. rather than a loan deal (which is all PNE can really offer)

It's been already reported in the local press that Ince was at Deepdale to watch Rudd. I doubt he went there to watch the game.

Remind win rate at mansfeild and mkdons

You mean Macclesfield not Mansfield and he wasn't there watching Rudd he was watching Oldhams man mountain striker smith as he wants a tall powerfull stiker for next season as an option who he was told about by Blackpools New fitness coach who was there with Dickov

I have been to every home match this season and sit by the directors box. at every game there has been scouts there, so its no big deal that ince was ther. by the way there was 22 players on the pitch, not just Hayhurst and Rudd having a kick round.

Macclesfield Town 40. 00%

Milton Keynes Dons 60. 00%

Blackburn Rovers 31. 57%

Milton Keynes Dons 41. 07%

Notts County 34. 48%

Blackpool 22. 22%

There are some managers out there with worse records.

Those figures are incorrect, eg 28% Blackburn Rovers. Also fact, Ince lost NINE games on the run, so Notts sacked him.

Notts County and Blackburn have a new manager every season.

2 clubs that sack a manager at the drop of a hat but just don't realise that they are just cr#p at football

Notts County and Blackburn Rovers, amongst others, are two of the oldest cubs in football history. , Trouble with footy is, "Sly TV" and "Premier League" are killing the game off, by greedy business men.

Well with a 22. 22% win rate so far at Blackpool, he ain't doing such a good job so far then is he.

Whats the loss rate again



10 Apr 2013 14:28:39
crystal palace are rumoured to be interested in midfield duo chalie adam from stoke city and nigirian international stephan sunny

Whos paying for these, the tooth fairy

I agree. Palace would only pay between 1. 5 - 2 million for albert adomah

Don't worry Pulis has a record of paying full price for a player then letting him go on a free. Aka Kitson, Tuncay and Palacious soon to follow.

I would rather take Phil Neville to PALACE on a free from Everton, at the end of this season, although he wants a coaching job.

I thought we had Tuncay on loan?



10 Apr 2013 14:21:09
notts county are to take advantage of burys financial trouble by attempting to sign there captain steven schumacher

Not a chance agreed to sign for preston in summer on a 2 yr deal

Im a preston fan and we hardly have any money so how we signing him.

Funny because its on tv that notts are signing him

Tranmere fans are saying they offered him a 2 year deal, pre contract signed in January.



10 Apr 2013 14:17:49
Swindon Town have approached Colin Calderwood to become the next manager, the board know that they are not popular and need to make the playoffs at least to gain projected revenue, Macdonald will be sacked if he doesn't win Saturday

10 Apr 2013 15:22:17
i hope its true about McDonald getting sacked but I doubt it as this board are all full of hot air and don't have the money to pay him off. They are a load of cheap skate chancers who are going to milk the club dry as they are all taking a six figure salary from the club and will rely of selling players off in the summer to keep lining their pockets.
Grim times ahead.
McDonald must go down with Malpas as our worst manager ever he needs to go back to running youth teams.

We can only hope and pray this is true, Mcdonald has a win ratio of 25% in management no matter where he has been, cheap option by STFC. Season ticket sales will be down massively if we do not reach the play offs!.

None of this is true, the Swindon board could'nt afford to get rid of the useless macdonald that's why they got him on the cheap, not once have they (board) engaged with the supporters or run a poll on who would be the most popular choice, they are a bunch of cowboys that are milking the club and are going to take us down, we have absolutley no chance getting to the play offs, and if we did we would be beaten easily, the club is becoming a holiday camp since dicanio has gone, basically we have lost our general our leader and now we have a boy scout in macdonald, he might be a good coach but this does'nt mean he would be a good manager, the persons who gave him the position are at fault for this and this shows that they haven't got a clue, Running Banbury Utd is a million miles away from running Swindon Town, Jed and his circus get the first bus back to Banbury please and take Macdonald with you, and to all the Swindon fans that think Paul Bodin should be given a chance to manage the first team! dream on, the Paul Bodin that wants to sue the club? never good enough to manage the first team, pack your bags also Mr Bodin.

Dream on fella, what they going to pay Colin with shirt buttons, get in the real world mate how many strongbows you had.

11 Apr 2013 18:09:16
To the person who said how many strongbows has some one had -get in the real world pal your obviously some cockney person who think that is how people in wiltshire are cider drinkers how ignorant you are. Typical londoners think they know everything but are ignorant what goes on outside that horrible dirty city.

I live in Swindon, a place called lakeside, ever heard of it? I doubt it, and for your information strongbow is a good drink I drink it myself when I am in the moonies.



10 Apr 2013 12:36:37
shane long target for lazio and seville



10 Apr 2013 11:58:02
swansea will not be signing lukaku. it was a story made up by a paper who put 2 and 2 together to get 5 due to the fact swansea have qualified for europe. the fact is his agent has come out and stated that neither he or lukaku have made any statements about his future as they first need to speak to chelsea and who ever the new manager will be to discuss his plans!

clearly a statement from an agent doesn't sell half as many papers as rumours and gossip so its been ignored.

Exactly the same situation ashley williams. Yet rumours of Liverpool and arsenel keep coming

Lakaku will never play for chelski reguarly unless they play 2 up top and partner with ba which won't happen because of hazard mata oscar etc. I think he'll leave be4 people realise he's a top top top young striker can also see him joining liverpool if suarez leaves in summer or maybe heading to france for few years espicially if you sign hulk like reported
true terrier

10 Apr 2013 14:29:41
Stay in West London. and partner Berbatov



10 Apr 2013 11:23:07
preston will move for lee croft in the summer also tpreston are looking at dean cox and few prem loans, on the way out of deepdale are moose, byrom, Beardsley, candell sherriff and proctor

Dean Cox is under contract and rejected a move to Peterborough so hardly likely to move to Preston

10 Apr 2013 16:41:42
if you read dean cox on twitter you will find he as stated he is willing to sign for preston if the chance is there

Well that's rubbish, cox loves working at orient under slade. That being said a £250,000 bid would be accepted by the o's as his recent form has been poor.

IF CROFTY left oldham he wouldn;t go to Preston as he could sign for a much better team who will at least challenge for things.

Have to laugh preston call oldhams players yet they want Crofty. lol



10 Apr 2013 10:38:52
A League Two club based in the south will be in administration by the end of tomorrow placing it precariously close to relegation.

Who is it if you know so much

10 Apr 2013 15:08:28
Do your maths and work out which southern club might be close to the relegation zone if it were to be deducted 10 points.

10 Apr 2013 15:27:23
last week you said it was a league one club

10 Apr 2013 16:39:56
It's now the end of tomorrow?

10 Apr 2013 16:27:35
wimbledon or Barnet then

10 Apr 2013 16:30:27
so it could be Oxford -wycombe -barnet -wimbledon - southend - if you know so much you would be telling us.

This has probably been posted by a league 1 club supporter whose own club is facing financial difficulties due to a previous manager over spending on his clubs players leading them to an embargo or another supporter of another league 1 club who have an expensive squad but do not have the fanbase to cover their wages

11 Apr 2013 11:17:19
its Oxford!

Oxford united I've heard? With reported losses of over £1m

11 Apr 2013 20:31:30
I've heard it's oxford united?



10 Apr 2013 09:52:58
Brighton are very keen on signing Phill Neville at the end of the season. It is reported that he is prepared to drop his wages to extend his career.

He has also stated that he wants to still play at the top!!

10 Apr 2013 18:30:24
That why he will join brighton at the top unlike palace

Brighton are very keen to sign Messi for next season and I want to wake up next to Carol Vordeman. but neither will happen!

No you're right neiver will happen messi very happy were he is. So let's be realistic rooney needs to make way for the return of ranaldo so probably a good time for a cheeky bid

Cant believe all I hear but Messi yep that is true!

13 Apr 2013 02:08:26
Yeah messi is true and a bit of neymar



10 Apr 2013 09:22:08
Phil Neville to join Hull if they get promoted. Would suit the team and add a bit of experience to the defense.



10 Apr 2013 09:19:04
Danny Wilson is to be sacked as Sheffield United manager due to a poor run of form during a supposed push for automatic promotion, having failed to win at home since mid February and having failed to score at home in 4 matches. Play-Offs will not do for Sheffield United as Sheffield United are statistically the worst team at Play-Offs having featured in the most Play-Offs without ever gaining promotion via this system. Also during his managerial career, Danny Wilson has never got a club promoted via the Play-Offs system.



10 Apr 2013 09:00:29
Very strong rumour from a family member at last nights game with PNE at Deepdale

PNE's 19 year old striker William Hayhurst had a few Championship & League 1 scouts watching his performance with cheque books at the ready.

Wages look like the main reason for him wanting a move.

Expect bids this summer from Swindon, MK Dons & Doncaster.

Hmmmm. Will's a VERY Highly rated player AND a Preston lad & PNE are wanting to sign him, Bailey Wright & Jeffrey Monakana on long deals to build a team around them. Haha. Mind you this IS Preston & a £500,000 bid COULD tempt them! ;-)

Hayhurst will never go to any of the teams named here mk dons no chance or Swindon to far away from his family and not a chance of Donny also none of the teams named can afford him

I know Will was annoyed that his wages were not on the same level as some of the other players as he came up through the Youth ranks.

Just glad he got a contract for 2 years.

I can see him moving on in the summer if a decent offer comes in from one of the top clubs in League 1 or The Championship.

Ha ha these rumours get worse and worse tell your family member to wake up hayhurst won't leave preston

"None of the teams named can afford him. ". that made me laugh

I doubt Preston are in the top 5 of the league 1 payers when 100% of their signings are either free's or Bosman signings from teams at a lower level.

Didnt Westley get rid of all the half decent players to reduce the wage bill.

I doubt he's worth £500k. the whole team cost less than £160k and many will be leaving on free's in the summer.

You think MK Dons could bid £500,000 for a player? Oh my God! You are totally off the wall. Five hundred quid is the most we could afford.

I find it amusing how people make up so many silly random rumours. Pathetic really.

Swindon will not bid as we have not got a pot to p1ss in at the moment.

It's 100% certain that Will will leave PNE after hearing the interest he's getting from some of the scouts at last nights game.

The days of paying out large fees and wages for players for Div 1 & 2 clubs are now out the question. Unless they have large financial turnovers. Championship clubs are the only ones who MIGHT be interested

The main concern is that Will is not as fast has he used to be after suffering two broken legs. Give the lad a chance to regain his full fitness and see where it takes him.



10 Apr 2013 08:54:25
if Swansea city fail to bring Romelu Lukaku in on loan next season they will go for Qpr's Loic Remy if they go down.

Swansea have a wage structure which means no one is paid over £32,000 a week. Loic Remy is earning over £70,000 at QPR, there is no way he will be joining us.

This wage structure means that Swansea will never be able to buy high quality players. They will always have to develope players or only in few situations be able to buy quality on the cheap like Michu. (Won't happen every year though)

So your telling me swans will never sign a player who earns over 32,000? hahha!

Michu is the highest paid player with us on £35k a week. Also, each first team player, subs included, get a £5k bonus per win as an incentive. Great incentive when you think Ben Davies could earn more in bonuses for two wins than a month without any than his monthly wages come to!

Not top club wages by any means but a sound and fair structure which keeps the club turning over a profit. £14m last year and over £15m in this seasons first 6 mths!

Next season, with Europe, I wouldn't be surprised to end of season bonuses increase substantially depending on performances!

This is a fantastic way of ensuring we get FOOTBALLERS and not pay day hunters.

Pablo Hernandez is on 40,000 a week so that "wage structure" is wrong

They might sign a player who's wages are worth more than 32,000 but he will have to take a wage cut. Honestly this comes from Sophie Jenkins the chairman's daughter. Good mates with her

I can confirm this "wage structure" total is wrong but not to far of the mark. A few players at the club earn more than that amount in a week. There is fantastic bonuses in posistion at Swansea for a club of their stature and size and a lot of clubs should take a leaf out of the Swansea book in how to run a club.

Pitty pablo hernandez doesn't play like a £40,000 a week player most the time -_-

12 Apr 2013 09:16:22
I liked the IF qpr go down!

Remy is Everton's no 1 target. Wages will NOT be a problem as will be funded by major sponsor.

Swansea have a wage structure with no player paid over 40,000 a week, but the structure includes goal bonus' match bonus' win bonus' etc so if remy did come to swans he wouldn't be losing much money :)

Begovic and Fellaini to Chelsea. Cavani and Eriksen to Man City. Casillas to United, far fetched?

10 Apr 2013 11:40:37
Why would Chelsea need another keeper when they already have two of the best keepers in the world?

albert adomah-4. 75 million to crystal palace in the summer.

Albert Adomah -£4. 75m- what are you on?
You won't get a third of that - he is not a Zaha replacement

He's chubby

He's good, but not worth that much money!

10 Apr 2013 20:56:03
I'm a city fan- AA will likely be sold in the summer and Palace have been rumoured already- There is no way though that BCFC, will get that sort of money, no matter how much anybody thinks he's worth or compares him to Zaha- We will be lucky to get £2m

marlon pack- cheltenham to bristol city is a definate



10 Apr 2013 00:56:03
as relegation is almost inevitable for bristol city. sean o'driscoll has asked for the appropriate funds for a complete squad clear-out. his targets are:
- lewis grabban (bournemouth)
-jay bothroyd (loan qpr)
- james coppinger (doncaster)
- kyle mcfadzean (crawley)
- paddy madden (yeovil)
- simon gillett (forest)

jon stead will be the only one offered a new deal out of the players running out of contracts.

i will post more information when I find it out.

Why would Grabban want to stay in League One with Brizzle when he could be in the Championship with the Cherries? Same goes for Paddy Madden too.

U won't get paddy madden!!!! he's going to the championship

What he wants & what he gets are two different things! With Bournemouth, Doncaster & Yeovil going for promotion with strong clubs (even if those clubs do miss out on promotion). I don't see Copps, Madden & Grabban likely successful targets. Looking on the list it looks like a wish list made up by an unhappy Bristol City supporter!

City will dump nearly everyone going out of contract and then go on with what they have.

There is no way we will make that many signings.

Jon Stead sadly will be on his way as he is a top end earner, and I will be stunned if he will accept a new wage that fits in to League 1.

He will not find it hard to pick up close to what he gets now at another Championship club.

Jay Bothroyd would not drop down to that level, even on loan

Paddy. madden. is. not. leaving. yeovil. to. go. to. city

41 mill in debt I donthink so

Macfazdean not leaving crawley for another league one club he has already said he will only go to a championship club or prem. Why would he want to go to rubbishty bristol city

Yes. madden. is. joining. city.

Why would copps be interested in joining up with odriscoll after what happened at forest?
Also why would copps be interested in leaving donny after practically 10 years?
Also why would copps rather play in league 1 when he will/should be playing in the championship next year?
Utter rubbish

Its funny how bristol city fans always say yeovil are bad yet yeovil players are always linked with moves to bristol city most of those made by bristol city fans so how are we rubbbish yet you always want are players

10 Apr 2013 21:33:25
Macfazdean has said he has no intrest in bristol city

The only player city would want is madden the rest are rubbish and you take our rejects like edwards and mcallister

Its funny how yeovil fans think madden will never sign for bristol city. If we double his wages, of course he will want to. If your not the player himself, you can't say whether he will/wont move. Typical yeovil scum

What are you on about Bristol City can't afford to double Madden's wages if you get relegated because you loose money you absolute person. He'd never want to go to a worse club he'd want to go to a better club.

You may be able to double his wages but so can many other teams, not only teams that will compete at the top of league 1 next year (unlike city) but also a few championship teams

^^ You've obviously not seen Grabban play then, oh wise one!

By the way they are biting Bristol City fans are obviously feeling very threatened by Yeovil.

I would take Yoevil's manager if we could get him. I think he could do a job at Ashton Gate.

Macfazdean is still inteested in joining Bristol city has spent 2 weekends in Bristol looking at the area, though he4 did not visit the stadium on either occasion but did have lunch with a member of the board. Or that's what his sister told my sister.

Macfazdean is not joining bristol he said it at the crawley town charity event to a number of fans an also made it public that he has no interest in bristol. Crawley will not sell him for anything less than a million bristol cannot afford him or his wadges

He's not going to say he wants to leave in front of loads of Crawley town fans now is he! Don't forget he had agreed terms with bristol city some time ago.

14 Apr 2013 19:09:33
I know macfazdean personly there is a team after him however its a stable championship side that can actuly afford his wadges bristol cannot afford his wadges

14 Apr 2013 19:30:12
Crawley to relese new home and away kit next week with the new kit being made by nike. I've seen them myself and I must say they look very nice

Middlesbrough are plotting a move for West brom striker Marc Antonine fortune



09 Apr 2013 21:18:45
Rodrigo (Benfica), Chris Mavinga and Szabolcs Huszti are all targets for WBA

Rodrigo far too good for WBA surely?

Rodrigo and Chris Mavinga are already definite targets for West Brom, not sure about Szabolcs Hultszi though, so whoever posted this made some of this up!

10 Apr 2013 12:34:03
Huszti has been linked with wba a few times in the past
