I understand there is some consternation at the selection of todays Man Utd team from within the camp. There are several who don't understand how one elder statesman keeps getting selected in midfield yet continues not to perform. There is a school of thought that wonders whether the boss is deliberately making a point to certain Americans by selecting an ageing team that is notably underperforming. Tommygun

11 Apr 2010 19:21:53
All these arsenal fans are getting a bit deluded with what is happening to your team regarding transfers when has anyone ever seen arsene wenger go mad with his transfer dealings you will without a doubt bring in chamakh and a new goalkeeper more than likely one of these neuer–£10m is a bargain for such a good goalkeeper or ochoa–£12m yet again another bargain he is one of the worlds besst young goalkeepers the only reason not many have heard of him is because he plays in the mexican league the other is frey–£12m which is a lil pricey considering he is middle aged in footballers ages and you will not get rid of traore he has played very well at left back this season he still makes some mistakes but he is young and he will be converted to a left winger the same way eboue has been converted to a right winger so this will be the arsenal team for next season based on just common sense:

gk–frey, mannone
rb–sagna, & a new signing possibly van der wiel
lb–clichy, gibbs
cb–vermaelen, djourou, campbell, gallas
dm–song, denilson, eastmond
cm–fabregas, nasri, wilshere, diaby, ramsey
rw–eboue, walcott, rosicky
lw–arshavin, traore, vela
st–van persie, bendtner, chamakh, eduardo

Whilst Ashley has stated that there will not be any big wage signings he has agreed that if he wants Newcastle to stay in the Premiership and remain a commodity then he will have to spend.
Jamie O'Hara, Jimmy Bullard, Bernard Mendy, Kevin–Prince Boateng/ Hassan Yebda, Steven Fletcher , another loan attempt for Patrick van Aanholt and the latest rumblings is Dimitar Berbatov I think a loan spell for Danny Welbeck is more likely.

To The Muppet Who Said This Crap

"Firstly, i don't understand why so many people prefers Chamack instaed of Bendtner! Nicky has a much better strike rate than him this season, considering he was injured for 3 months, and last season, mainly coming on as a sub– in a harder league! Secondly, i believe Wenger might spend some more cash, now he has seen Barca eye 2 eye."

are you insane what so you think we are gonna spend some money by spending 11m + almunia for rob green no way the guy isn't worth nothing over 7m let alone sending almunia the other way if we are gonna buy a keeper it will be 1 of frey/lloris/neuer and you think we will let rvp go and not buy a big replacement and let arshavin go and not buy a big replacement you seriously don't know what your talking about now to real arsenal rumours

2010 summer ins

philippe mexes – 9m (cut price because he has 1 year left on contract and has fallen out with manager)
gary cahill – 9m
villa/higuain – 25m–35m
chamakh – free
lloris/frey/neuer – 17m/10m/14m
de rossi – 25m

Gooner N1

LIVERPOOL RUMOUR.100% 100% 100%,
KIERAN RICHARDSON sunderland as a left back?? raffa believes that he will have both england full backs with in a two years??

LIVERPOOL will try a sneaky bid to land LANDON DONOVAN from under the noses of rivals EVERTON?
one last thing LIVERPOOL have failed in an attempt to hijack TOTTENHAM'S bid's for SANI EMMANUEL & JACK MCLNERNEY with both player's opting for white hart lane instead.


11 Apr 2010 12:04:07
Mourinho will be the NEW Liverpool Manager next season.


11 Apr 2010 12:11:08
Moyes is set to have a mini clearout of the persistent under performers.
Expect to see the likes of Yobo, Anichebe and Yakubu to leave the blues.
Moyes won't have a fire sale to get rid of them but he'll accept decent offers for them.
Yobo £4million
Anichebe £3.75million
Yakubu £8.5million
He's trying to build a bigger, younger, stronger squad to maintain momentum for the whole season. Suspensions and injuries have shown Moyes that although he has excellent players, he needs more strength in depth.
Players being linked with a summer move to Everton–
Graham Dorrans(aged 22) from West Brom for £6.25million
Joe Ledley (aged 23) from Cardiff for £5.5million plus player
Jermaine Beckford (aged 26) from Leeds on a FREE
Marko Marin (aged 21) from Werder Bremen for £9million
Joao Moutinho (aged 23) from Sporting Lisbon £7million up front with another £4.5million activated upon apperances

So Moyes is expecting around £16million in from sales and is looking to outlay around £27million on new players. Bill Kenwright has given Moyes the go ahead to spend money earmarked for the unsuccessful "Kirby" move.



11 Apr 2010 14:05:20
Does any one have any 100% true leeds united rumours i know some Australian guy wants to buy us and he is worth around 3 billion pounds but is there any transfer rumours


11 Apr 2010 10:32:53
Arsenal and Manchester United to fight it out for Fiorentina keeper Sebastien Frey for 15 million


11 Apr 2010 11:16:15
To the person saying Leeds are looking for a investor/buyer:

Frank Lowy, the chairman of the FFA (Football Federation Australia) is the man supposedly interested.
He is worth 6 billions dollars (roughly 3.8 billions pounds)


11 Apr 2010 02:48:59

Steve Bruce is getting sick of being poor away from home, yet having such a good home record (only losing twice at home this season). In the summer, owned Ellis Short will fund Bruce 40 million pound to help stop this.

Luis Suarez (Ajax) – £25 million
N'zogbia (Wigan) – £8 million
Riveros (Cruz Azul) – £1 million
Jamie O'Hara (Spurs) – £5 million
Kevin Kuranyi (Free Agent) – Free
Alan Hutton (Spurs) – £6 million
John Mensah (Lyon) – P/A/Y/P


Kenwyne Jones – £15 million (Liverpool/Aston Villa)
Anton Ferdinand – £7 million (Spurs/Birmingham)
Kieran Richardson – £5 million (West Brom)
Daryl Murphy – £1.5 million (Ipswich)
David Healy – £1 million (Preston North End)
Nyron Nosworthy – £2 million (Sheffield United)
Roy O'Donovan – £500 thousand (Hartlepool)

Don't be surprised if you see atleast 3 of those players sign! Remember, SafcJD told you!

PAFC news, the board (absent) and many of the players at Home Park have accepted relegation already. Many are making plans to move away next season Mackie (who believes he is better than he is)Johnson, Fletcher and Arnason will not accept big pay cuts and will be off. Loanees Ekersley, Judge, Stockdale and N'Gala will not return Gow, Mclean, Seip and Sawyer all out on loan do not want to return its a bloody mess !
On top of this add in the fact that the 'holding company' want to commercially develop the ground for all year round income (but not for the club) we are up cr4p creek without a paddle.
Sir Roy Gardener recently said, 'if we have to revert to youth we will' well that particular pool of talent will be sold off the service debt Summerfield, Mason, Reda Johnson and the jewell Mason.
Div 2 is a real prospect on the bounce !!


10 Apr 2010 23:24:14
Swansea city to go up and they r to sign a player from man utd and a player from leeds utd


10 Apr 2010 23:29:26
After the embarasment of Ross county the celtic board is going to take drastic action. I have a contact close to neil lennon who has claimed that all these players are on the way out;

and basicly all the defenders apart from Thompson, Hoiveld and Hinkel.

In the summer Celtic are going to spend majour amounts of money on the team which is going to be built around Mc Geady, Brown and Keane. The challenge is getting Keane a strike partner and a whole new defence! Hail Hail Bhoys It can't get any worse


10 Apr 2010 23:30:32
Manchester united sign standard liege youngster
Marnick Vermijl alongside with Chicharito , Brazilian
Roberto Firminio, River Plate starlet Daniel Villalva

James milner to man united done deal, hence why o'neill was about to walk from villa last week


10 Apr 2010 23:46:18
Firstly to the dumb bluenose who said this box
stop talking about Liverpool FC you blitter blue dumbae

look at what you spent in the summer compared to other clubs

you spent more that LFC so how can you make this stupid statement clearly you know FAll about football

please be quite you idiot.

EFC the best pouund for pound team in the premier division WOULD of walked 4th maybe even 3rd this season if it wasnt for our injuries, next season we WILL be a force, and continue to be the blueprint for other clubs (Not money men with Arab/oil money, that's not football IMHO).

you'll be worse next season as the teas around you have strenghtend ie spurs man city and villa

youve brought shame to your blue shirt youve never worn.

Liverpool rumours

new owner in 6 weeks time

new striker

2 defenders
danny wilson



Jmartinez in midfild

and mata.

and some youth

a few sales nobody worth worrying about.



10 Apr 2010 23:55:38
Some news, not regarding my son but because of him i am able to find this out, my son Jordan Lodge plays under 15 football in Edinburgh and has been approached from numerous clubs including Celtic, Hibernian, Manchester United but surprisingly Barcelona. The scout, a man named Victor Carnales i believe, had a talk with us and offered my son the chance to move to Barcelona when he was 16, but interestingly we were told there would be several English players there, in both first team and youth teams. Could this be Wayne Rooney? Steven Gerrard? and youth prospects. Not sure the names of the players but this is the truth and i feel it may be value to several fans.



11 Apr 2010 00:47:50
For interest of Walsall fans:

There is to be a protest march against Roy Whalley and Jeff Bonser at the final game of the season (at home to MK Dons).

Fans will congregate outside The Black Country Inn, and walk with banners to the ground, not entering the stadium itself until 10 minutes after kick–off.

It is hoped that Pete Waterman will come in with a firm offer for the club in the summer.


10 Apr 2010 22:53:26
To the guy who posted about David Needham and Notts County.

What's your source? Not saying I don't believe you (and Needham is a County legend) but I've not heard this rumour before.

It makes sense on paper, and we are an attractive club going the right way. Yes, the debt is an issue but maybe we could sell part of our land to offset the debts. Then, when we get to The Championship we can move to a new stadium – by Toton/Beeston roundabout on the A52 would be ideal as the land and access roads are there.

A new stadium is a few years off, anyway, but investment from somebody close to County would be fantastic and not a repeat of 12 months ago with Dumbo err Munto.


10 Apr 2010 22:58:20
I have not got a clue if United will buy Benzema or get him on loan next season, but one thing i can guarantee is that he will not play for Real Madrid next season! He is hated by the majority of the Real supporters and he is certain to leave!


10 Apr 2010 23:05:24

The rumours about Barclays Capital and Liverpol are true. Hicks and Gillette now want out completely. Wachovia and RBS have refused to budge and want the debt halving by 31 July or they will seize the club and cash it up. Barclays Capital have been tasked to find an outright buyer – the Rhone deal no longer being on the table and even if it still were it isn't actually viable now that Wachovia/RBS are literally holding a loaded gun to the head of the club.

Stand by for a very rough and rocky ride between now and 31 July fellow Red Men, very rough and rocky indeed.
