Liverpool talk

To all you so called "insiders" who have these so call "contacts" I never heard anything about Ryan Babel.

Please Liverpool fans, lets be real here. We are not getting Alves. We have 2 right backs already and Rafa will not spend £15 million on him. Very upset about Benayoun (done deal) We go from Torres' world class to standard Yossi. He will have some good games but more bad ones, he's like Garcia good in patches. If we realistic about winning the league he is not going to be match winner, provider 4 Torres we need.

As much as I dream of getting Quaresma it are not happening.: ( He is simply a Ronaldo body double with more tricks under his sleeve. Babel is inexperianced with potential, just like Gonzalez then. Another frustrating season coming up people. Unless Rafa suprises everyone with Quaresma and Babel. NOPE.

PS Can you jesters stop with this fantasy football rumours. Ronaldinho to pompy. Pls.

 I enjoy listening to peoples obviously fictional rumours very much. What angers me is when people claim Arsenal will spend 50 million on players. we will spend £20 million max and that is including any money we make from selling. Looks like Sagna will sign and then mayber a few cheap prospects. Trust in Wenger we are not on the decline far from it. RVP will be Premier League top scorer this season with Walcott, Fabregas, and Denilson all to make big impacts. We have a young side who will be a lot better than last season. Especially with Eduardo the goal machine coming in. We will finish higher than Liverpool next season and maybe even higher than Chelsea.


 To the man that said that Babel and Quaresma could test Ronaldo. I do not think so mate. they look good in there leagues because the leagues they play in are attacking and cannot defend. Quaresma has already played for FC Barcelona but could not cut it in la liga, what chance has he got in the Premier League. Ronaldos proven in the Premier League and internationals fact.

true man u


 the Hammers are far from finished in the transfer market. Stephen Appiah will sign next week, this is despite the Hammers trying to hijack other deals and want to sign Riquelme on a one year loan with an option to buy. As a number of forwards are being shown the exit door including Tevez they will make a surprise bid for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. the Hammers are still in the Hunt for a left back and are looking at a number of players including Baines and possibly a loan move for Marcelo from Real Madrid.


 Some of the stuff on this site makes me laugh.

to the guy that said Tevez will go to Liverpool, what a joke– Carlos has already promised Sir Alex that he will join Man United regaedless of how long it take. He has been a Man United fan since a boy (rember famous press coneference for corithians and he turned up in a Man United shirt.

Torres– great scouse aquisition but I feel it may take him a season to settle in as with most Spainish players.

shame the best Spanish player in the Premier League still plays for Everton.

Arsenal– truly a sinking ship– fab might stay this season but will be off by next to FC Barcelona. Gallas wants out already as does ljungberg

next year league positions

Man United






Arsenal (maybe a UEFA spot)


 The transfer of Ricardo Quaresma has been foiled due to Porto wanting to keep him another season in order for his market value to increase.

Therefore Liverpool have turned their attention to M. Gamst Pederson, with a 9.6 million bid being accepted by Rovers. MGP is currently considering a contract, however wants to move to Liverpool. Also, Liverpool have made a bid for the youngster, Borre, from Anderlecht, dubbed as being the next Marcel Desailly


 Toby Smith will not be joining Leicester because of his knee injury and Leicester do not want to have a injured player on their team who is not very good anyway although cooper is expected to sign within the next 24hours along with another forward who is yet to be named


 Firstly I have to say I am the anti Arsenal and Wenger. But he is no fool. I remember these statements being said about United when they sold Ince, Hughes and KonChelseas. That very next season they went onto glory, with players coming through to replace were Beckham, Scholes and Butt, who all also went onto England success. Never thought I would thank a Scottish man for creating the backbone of the England team over the last 10 years, cheers Fergie.

I am also an Aston Villa fan and our fans need to stop worrying, Martin O Neil is one of the best managers in the world, we also have an excellent backer, a world renown chief executive,

We will be signing more players and they will be world class.

Also those moaning about NRC in comparison to Davis, NRC has been bought in to replace McCann not Davis. Stop the panic, expect someone like Luke Young, another forward like Defoe another winger similar too Shaun Wright–Phillips, another midfielder and maybe a few squad players. Up the villa, apparently a press conference has been announced and Tony Morley, Gary Shaw and Peter Withe are coming out of retirement to play for the Villa.


 100 percent Transfers for Lfc

4 million Y. Benayoun to Liverpool

13.5 million R. Babel to Liverpool

17 million R. queresma to Liverpool

all these deals will be completed shorty

then expect Rafa to go for a centre back possibly Heinze but United will be reluctant to sell.


 Chopra to the Black Cats for £5 million.


 I cannot see Villa getting into Europe with this current squad and with Manchester City, the Hammers, Portsmouth and Newcastle spending like they are.

I think this is our current strongest best XI





(with Moore, Maloney and Berger coming on every so often)

This is a decent line up but I would like to see a more attaking right back because we do not hav any at the moment maybe a quality Midfielder (Sneijder? ) and goal scorer

We are going to have to look abroad for soe of these

any suggestions?


 Scholes will make the move to Sunderland following Man Us recent signings. Sunderland have also made a bid for the £9 million release in Owens NUfc contract, surprising I know, but it'll be up to Owen whether this interests him or not.

Away from the Mackems and to the glorious Newcastle United. I have heard from a strong source within the Chronicle that Newcaslte have almost completed a deal for Riquelme as their 'shock' signing. There is talk of Emre going in the opposite direction. Beye and Shorey will be added to the defense next season, Beye is already a done deal and Shorey is keen to come to try and keep his England hopes alive. These are from strong sources. I have also heard that Defoe will coem in, but this was a rumour I heard.

– Derka


 The undisclosed forward for whom Sheff Wednesday have made a bid is Nottingham Forest forward Nathan Tyson. Ironically, the former Wycombe hitman almost joined the owls two seasons ago when former mangaer Paul Sturrock was in charge. It is believed the owls have offered Forest £1.7 million to take the forward to Hillsborough to become the club's new no. 9



Deco will have a medical on tyneside next week. He will cost the Newcastle around £15 million, This transfer will then spark new interest from FC Barcelona for Lampard


 I can confirm that the other club looking to sign Kevin–Prince Boateng is Everton Moyes has looked at several German based players as he believes the league has some untapped quality. Moyes beleives that he could persuade Boateng to join ahead of Sevilla.


 I believe that Roy Keane is wanting to sign ex team mate Paul Scholes. He would make an excellent addition to the Sunderland squad. We have also been linked with Chelsea young starlet Salomon Kalou on loan who would bring competition to edwards and would benefit the team. Another name linked is the signing of Tottenham forward Jermaine definitely who is a proven Premier League forward.


 Man United are expected to hijack Liverpool's bid for Ben Peers. His arrival could signal the end of the road for one of Uniteds forwards, with Smith possibly moving to Everton or Saha moving to France.


The price is only 87 million + Gattuso, and it happens only if Milan can tempt Jason McAteer out of retirement.


 I cannot believe Nugent is contemplating signing for Pompey but good on Old Arry if he has got him. Anyway I saw our boss Bill Kenwright buying a scratchcard from the newsagents here in Liverpool I said hey Bill weve got more chance of signing Riquelme than you winning on that. He said you pay your money and take a chance son. I wish he would get his finger out just like MIKKY ARTETA said. Where is the bangers and mash for the Blues.


 Liverpool rumours Rafa has realised that spending all that money on Torres was actually a big, big mistake, as he could have had eto'o or Villa for a smidgen more. anyway, Rafa's a big fellar and not about to start crying over spilt milk why, when his generous, football loving benefactors will give him £28 million for Quaresma, £33 for Ibrahimovic and finally another astonishing £875 million for a triple swoop on Drogba, John Terry and Lampard. this in turn will make all true LFC fans delirious with happiness as they are desperate to show the world that Chelsea are not the only club in the world who can buy success. and who said football was not the beautiful game anymore? fact


 I have just come back from Spain, the sports papers over there are saying Real are looking at a Robinho for Fabregas swap and 30 million for Reyes.


 Fulham and Millwall are going to make bids for Glen Southam and Paul Benson of Dagenham and Redbridge


 With Schuster's arrival I am sure Real is geared fer the next season. expect some new faces coming as the new boss quoted in the recent press conference whr he was unveiled. expect Robben, Fabregas (not likely), Dani Alves (strong speculation in Madrid and siville), nd this one you all probbly will not bliev but John Terry will b headin t the bernabeu if che dnt hand him a deserved contract soon (terry is new focus as real quit from Chivu bidding), Saviola, pep, Metzelder will b unveiled this Thursday or Friday, Reyes staying and baptista to return t the bernabeu. basically real have a good solid squad t challenge FC Barcelona and othr top clubs fer the ultimnate title in Europe. this may sound too farfetchd but u'll see these approaches made over the transfer season. the player may not sign but these approaches will b made by Los Merengues


 Firstly I am a Liverpool fan.

And I just heard Alves is not coming to Anfield as too expensive but Rafa is still annoyed from losing Aguero to At Madrid last Summer that he putting all his efforts into getting the best young talent from South America. So see a large bid for Pato (I think that was the name I heard) and there being few scouts at the U– 20 World Cup.

Also heard of one more big signing. do not know who though. but it will make all LFC fans very happy

Lastly if the Man United buy Teves (and it looks likely) it will take some effort from any team to beat them to the Premier League or the Champions League.



 Everton will sign:



Riquelme (loan)

There will not be anyone leaving



Bulgarian centre foward Valeri Boljinov could be on his way to Arsenal as part of a player+ cash deal to take Frddie Ljungberg to Fiorentina

Arsenal have apparently made contact with Swiss side Neuchatal Xamax regarding their young centre forward Charles Andre–Doudin, any one ever heard of him?

After impressing in the Copa America Arsene is very interested in Mexico's Andres Guardado, who feels now is the time to test himself in Europe

Gallas will not be going, as Wenger sees him as a leader and along with Toure could bring on Djourou, Don;t rule out Wenger bringing in a experinenced cantre–half on a free, even if only for a season, to cover for afican nations cup


 Ok look here are some Liverpool rumours: Benayoun will sign for £4 million.? do not know y shud just save up and gt Quaresma (15– £18 million) and use Kewell as backup or 6– £10 million and gt Pederson. Weve stolen Babel from under Arsenal's noses, done deal. would buy a centre back ideally Chivu or kompany, if possible Stevie Taylor from Newcastle, English and has bright future bt could b priced out he may even be a Newcastle fan? if Crouch does not perform this season he will be heading for the door. and I am telling you Rafa will not sign Michael owen. no chance. Y would the guy who sold him to Real Madrid in his prime for £6 million (not sure) and antonio nunez or wateva his face was called. United will sign Tevez, gutted, and how much money have they got? and boys sum rumors are just sickening, sort it out you disillusioned acid freaks. but keep up the good work the real = v1= or wateva ure called. billnose


 I went to youtube to watch the potential Liverpool star signings Ryan Babel (almost done) and Ricardo Quaresma (soon). They are simply oustanding wingers. With one on each wing, they can definitely challenge manu's Ronaldo and dani. What a match to watch with four skillfull wingers cancelling each other out with their superb stepovers and tricks. Cheers to Rafa Benitez. Liverpool, the Premier League is coming back to Anfield at last.


 Liverpool will sign a young starlet from Kedah, Malaysia name Bunyamin Omar for £1.2 million euro. He a defensive midfielder and play just like the Stevie G. Need more exposure and should give a chance to play in Europe. LFC is his main destination. Rafa should get Indonesia forward Bambang Pamungkas, he's goooddd Surely, Quaresma will sign for LFC bcus he love the way Rafa managed the team. Julie Sudiro will be the new LFC physio Doc team. Come On you Red's.

We never walk alone.

LFC Nazlie75star= Malaysia.


 Robbie Fowler will reject possible move to Oz with Sydney FC and instead look to sign for a Championshp club. Coventry and Preston are thought to have been in touch with the former Liverpool man.


 With Benayoun going to Liverpool for £5 million + add ons. Expect the Hammers to secure the signing of Harry Kewell. Maybe they will also try to challenge Sunderland and Everton for Ryan Giggs signature.

Big spenders Tottenham are hoping to sign Ronaldinho. who feels there is to much competition at the Nou camp.

Finally Liverpool will sign Babbel, Queresma and Alves. Expect Rafa to come under pressure if Liverpool are not in the top 2 come Christmas.


 . whufc news.

the Hammers will sign four more players once Yossi Harewood and Tevez: ( has gone. We want to sign a forward even thou we signed Bellamy a left back a left mid and a utility player I do not know who yet.

Strikers we have been linked with are Defoe and Mido.

Left Mid N'Zogbia and shaun Wright–Phillips he is more right mid.

Left back Bridge or a foreign player

. : jm:.


 Leicester will sign, Lisbie, Clemence, and a few youngs lads in the coming weeks. also do not be shocked by Robbie Fowler. DJ Campbell is on the brink, but only if Wolves bring up a improved offer for Matty Fryatt.

conrad logan, sheehan and dodds of the Forest


 Bojinov has been offered to English club Arsenal FC as part of an exchange deal for winger Freddie Ljungberg who is wanted by Fiorentina for £5.5 million.


 The Spanish armada at Anfield looks to be expanded in the coming months. Tevez will not be heading to Man United as Benitez will trump Sir Alex by swooping in with an offer to buy the dimunitive forward rather than take him on loan. This will only take place in January when all the legal wrangling over ownership of the player is resolved. Benitez has also been running the rule over David Trazeguet with the view of offloading Peter Crouch next season.


 Bristol City are giving Latvian Striker Ģirts Karlsons a trial, when they visit Latvia for there tour.


 Leicester City are on the verge of signing young Real Madrid star colin hewitt, the 17 year old forward scored 56 goals in 38 games for Madrids youth team last season. Leicester have dropped their interest in defender Matt sharp who has chosen to go to yeading FC as he sees them as the bigger team


 Leicester could sign Stephen Clemence in the next few days along with Alex Morfaw who has been training with The Foxes. Clemence will become club captain. City are also showing an interest in DJ Campbell but his £2 million price tag is proving a stumbling block. if we fail to get DJ Campbell then we will move for Robbie Fowler. also Matty Fryatt will be staying at the club as Wolves have withdrawn their interest due to the signing of Freddy Eastwood.

Lcfc fox



Full Gallas interview is extremely optomistic and the current interview quotes are so far out of context it is untrue

I have read all of it

Note– I no crazy transfer stories, just info


 Arsenal rumours

Arsenal scouts are in Canada watching the U20 World Cup scouting Cesar Vilaluz, Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero and Renato Augusto expect one or more of these to sign. Arsenal will also sign Quaresma for £14 million and Sagna for £6 million with Ljungberg going to Fiorentina for £5.5 million. Micah Richards and Babel are also possibilities but les liKelly.

 I do not really post rumours on this site because unlike most of the people posting on this site I do not have "contacts" and my best friends brothers mums auntie is not married to Rafa Benitez or something stupid like that as many of you claim on here, I do no Jack the Rochdale kitman though who is a LEGEND.The rumours most fans place are highly unlikely and you have clearly been playing champ manager to often, but it's highly amusing.

The site is dominated by Arsenal fans who think they have an unlimited transfer budget and are "apparently" going to sign every top class forward on the planet ie/Villa. Eto'o to name 2, instead you are a club on the decline, SINKING SHIP is probably the phrase, Henry has seen this and left, Vieira left overmars. the list goes on. Wenger has unearthed some class talent ie Fabregas but he cannot do this year in year out. fact Arsenal are not the team they were and it would not suprise me if Tottenham overtook and try and cement their place in the "big four". United I hate to admit it have been the most impressive in the transfer market and with the imminent signing of Tevez they will be likely to regain their title: (, Chelsea have bought adequate squad players ie/Sidwell and pizarro. non are world beaters.Liverpool have spent wisely so far with Torres an exellent acquisition, hopefully he will bang the goals in this year and propell the redmen to challenge for the Premiership we want.Babel deal looks done, I also noticed how you "insiders" with the "contacts" never reported Babel signing for the reds.Goonerman said Babel was 100 percent signing for Arsenal. shows what you know. i hope Liverpool sign Quaresma for the right which will keep Pennant on his toes.

expect City to be active in the transfer market with thaksin shinawatra's money and Eriksson will bring in at least 1 swede with him maybe 2. Ljunberg and wilhelmsson likely. i would not expect Richards to leave City and I would not expect Man United to sign Robinho? why do they need him? Nani Giggs Ronaldo andersson Rooney Tevez. where would he play?



 I do not normally comment on this site, just look at it for a few laughs. But JB the "alleged" Everton fan needs to get a grip, this is a rumours site not a site for people on a soap box. Everton have refused to get involved in drawn out auctions to pay over the odds for untried and in some cases overrated players i.e. Koumas 5.3 million, Nugent 6– £7 million. You should be happy that there are people running the club with their heads sCrewed on and not willing to pay stupid money for any random player. Rant over. expect the Blues to sign a left back (Baines if the price is right and quedrue if not) and a forward (most likely to be Smith) with the possibility of one or two more (Richardson if Moyes does not tkae badly to his attitude).
