Ezequiel Lavezzi Napoli-Paris St Germain(37)(8)Your about 5-6 hours late with this one.Was hoping the "unnamed" team was going to be Mansfield Town, never mind.


10 Jun 2012 23:19:16
Oxford face a battle to sign former loan striker Dean Morgan, the winger is interesting newly promoted York City.
The signings of Ronnie Henry and Lee Frecklington should be completed by the end of the week.(4)(13)Funny how Morgan isnt wanted by WilderThere wont be a battle for Morgan. Lazy waste of space when he was on loan to OUFC. So not sure where you get this from.....


10 Jun 2012 22:47:35
Any Swindon Rumours ??(8)(20)Yep, they are in the first division...meanwhile at the other end of the A420..........That's not a rumour. That's a fact !!Swindon are set to place another bid for oxford united striker james constable, in the region of 400kA rumour that shrewsbury winger jon taylor is in talks with swindon town over a 3 year deal and is set to sign over the next few days, possibly a swap for matt ritchie?Ritchie is staying for ay least another season. As for Constable, Di Canio has made it plain that he lost his chance...the fact that his own supporters threatened him etc put him off even talking to be honest the fans that did that are disgusting but ultimately did us a favour.


10 Jun 2012 22:13:02
Steve Clarke hopes to make Nathaniel Clyne his first signing as West Brom manager. WBA are willing to meet Palace's £3m fee to avoid a tribunal.(18)(30) 

Clyne is going to Man U after Euro 2012. Fee will be set by a trib with Man U beliving the fee will be as little as 1.5 millionClyne will be at man utd soon. already had disscusions.As a Palace fan I'd rather see Clyne go to WBA than United. Will get first-team football and be part of a growing club with passionate fans. Rather than a club full of arm-chair glory fans..Rather see him stay at Palace but agree a move to albion would be better for him


10 Jun 2012 22:00:59
My thoughts are with everyone who loved and new former everton gk gorden west who has passed away.(44)(3)Great goalkeeper my hero as a young goalie very sad .I am Wednesday fan and saw him play many times in the sixtiesYes great keeper - I saw him years ago Everton were my Dad's team


10 Jun 2012 21:23:43
Leicester are interested in Stoke's 1.5 million pound rated Belgian, Florent Cuvelier(9)(35)On a loan move only, as hes considered as stokes jack wiltshireJust signed a new contract d/sThe midfielder recently signed a new deal. so they would get him on loanDoubt it he has just signed a new contractNo way he has just signed a new contractHe won't except it. He recently signed a new contract at stoke and wants to break into the first team there.Not a chance, he recently signed a new long term deal! The only way he'll leave the club is on loan! Do your homework!He's just signed a 2 year deal with stoke... try again sunshine.Is it true thoughPeter coates is ready to give TP 20 million plus any futher cash generated from player sales. expect a couple of tasty deals.They might get him on loan ..remmber b4 he went walsall he was struggling make the reservers thats why they sent him out as a make or break ..and b4 stoke commit to a bigger contract they will send him out agian this year to see how he gets onCould well go on loan as Stoke hinted he could join a Championship club. He certainly is a talent. Far better prospect than Marshall


10 Jun 2012 21:19:47
Port Vale are too sign former loanees Liam Chivers and Jennison Myrie-Williams and also chasing Liam Dickinson.(13)(4) 



10 Jun 2012 21:34:24
It is believed that Palace will make a last minute attempt to try and scupper Crawley's deal for Torquay's 22 year old midfielder Eunan O'Kane. It is believed that O'Kane is seen to have a bright future and will be loaned back out to Torquay should Palace sign him. The amount required to activate O'Kane's release clause is £175,000(16)(10)Can Palace afford 175,000?O'kane to the new den!He's ste, ane't gonna happenTo the muppet who said Palce can't afford 175k, our owners are worth a combined 1 billion and will spend as much as necessary on the right player. Stop living in the past

10 Jun 2012 19:52:37
Jay Rodriguez has signed for Southampton. There maybe at least one player involved in a swap as part of the £7million deal.(33)(18)Its a cash deal.No other players and i think closer to 6milThe deal is done, none of our players have gone, why are people still saying Burnley are getting a player in the deal?Its a cash only deal but it is 7mThe deal is 7m cash, no players coming the other way.... FACT .... good luck JayIt was 6 millionI can 100% say that the amount is less than 6m up front. It could rise to 7m but is closer to 5.6 initial payment.Its 7m but has a million worth of add ons."I can 100% say that the amount is less than 6m up front. It could rise to 7m but is closer to 5.6 initial payment."

i can 100% say you made that up. {Ed001's Note - I would suggest checking, they tend to be very accurate with prices. They list the deal as costing 7.6m (roughly).}Its not 7 million! But it can rise to they depending on matches, goals, england call up etcSo will be 7 million then..... Jay welcome. Next target please.SkySports reporting the price was 6 million. I believe them more than I believe . {Ed001's Note - then you are a fool, as use real figures from FIFA, UEFA and the FAs, while Sly make up their own figures. Run along now, you probably need to place a bet on their latest made up nonsense to get the likes of you gullible ones betting on slybet.}Different to ed 003s opinion a little way down "5million with add ons up to 7", no need to get bitter and uppity about sky:L {Ed001's Note - oh well, his opinion is his own, mine is based on the figures submitted to the FA, so I will stick with mine. As for Sly, they continually try and post nonsense on the site in an attempt to get free advertising, I have every right to be annoyed with their lies.}

Northamptons Michael Jacobs will join Derby next week when he arrives back off holiday (Northampton fan)(15)(10)If your Northampton fan can you tell everyone that doubts this that he told everyone in his local pub and friends and family that he is leaving to derbyApparently he did mate. Obviously can't be 100% but the talk up here is that a deal is close.Jacobs isnt on holiday :/ so this is another wrong jacobs talk... thought he had already signed for derby? more lie's....I know i wear claret and white tinted glasses but in my very serious opinion Jacobs will one day not only grace the premiership but will play for England. If Derby don't get this deal sorted soon then more fool themNo this is the right Michael Jacobs, i have him on facebook and he is in ibiza with 2 of the team mates (johnson & arron davies)
-Northampton FanHe's a fantastic talent. The best player we've produced in a long time. Good luck to the lad.Not on holiday? Want to check his twitter? He left for a week holiday to Ayia Nappa on Wednesday. Check on there. Get your facts right.I do not know were he is or wear he is going but i like the player and how ever gets him a great talent at a bargain price
Northampton fan for years if you go good luck MichealI am a cobblers fan and i think jacobs needs to go , he cant say in the lower leagues all his life he is just to good . i think he will become a prem star in the future and hopefully try and push for a england placeIm a massive derby fan and what i have seen of the videos and highlights and him being only 20 will fit right in with our young squad he is a talent and has also recieved a england u21 call up from stuart pearce.He goes to ayia nappa with a friend of mine soon, he also told this friend he has agreed to sign for derby after going upto moor farm a few thursdays back to finalise it.

Derby county are in for Dan Harding of Southampton. The former Leeds and Ipswich left back has bags of Championship experience but has been largely left out since the purchase of. Danny Fox last summer.(18)(13)Derby want a Lb no older than 25Afraid this isn't true. He has made some pretty permenant recent changes, indicative that he is remaining in Southampton for a while yet.Too Old for the RamsI think it could be true-with Englands next left back coming through for Saints, will they keep 3 other left backs in the squad-don't think so.Dickson will go before Harding. Seems he ha been given reassurances by Adkins over next season.Dan Harding just moved in to a house in Hiltingbury (February), he was in Knightwood renting until thenI do hope this is true! he is woeful at crossing to light weight and not fast enough! he is barely championship standard! he started less then 10 games against championship opposition last season! You can have him!


10 Jun 2012 19:11:53
Coleraine Chairman Hugh Wade moved quickly to support Manager Oran Kearney in his bid to keep prolific striker Curt Allen.

Allen was a target for both Bury and Falkirk
and is believed to have a 10000 pound buyout clause in his contract, which has 11 months to run.
Allen is settled on the Irish Coast but a move to a bigger stage could suit the players personal ambitions.

Expect contract talks to begin on his return from the TT races in the IOM.

Coleraine are known to play good direct football and Kearney himself has been the subject of much talk regarding a move to Scottish Football.(6)(3)Hugh Wade is not the chairman of Coleraine FC it is Colin McKendry


10 Jun 2012 19:19:35
Brian stock has finally agreed personal terms now just waiting for too clubs clubs to agree a fee Bournemouth won't pay any more than 500k doncaster holding out for 500k this is from Doncaster fan(10)(10)This just dont make sense. if doncaster want 500k and bournemouth wont go higher then 500k , the deal should be agreed?I'll take him down myself for 500k I'll fit his crutches in the boot aswell hes never off em and how can he talk to Bournemouth if Doncaster ain't agreed owtWhat's the point discussing personal terms if a fee hasn't already been agreed? {Ed001's Note - often happens that way, because the team's budget to buy a player will often be influenced by how much they have to pay out in wages.}Be sad to see him leave if its true. But the wages he is on we need more games from him. Deal deal deal. Backs gone and he can't play week in week out.I havnt signed for Crawley Sean O'Driscoll is a good man but Doncaster is my team now, so i want to get them promoted or if not get to the play-offs with them!


10 Jun 2012 18:46:38
According to tv sources, Man city to make a bid for France and real Madrid striker karim benzema(23)(20)He's said he's staying at Madrid.City dont need him we need someone like gotzeYou mean that Man City have actually made a bid for France !


10 Jun 2012 18:13:48
Reading will look into buying Rafik Djebbour after his impressive display in the Greek Super League. He is still within contract so it looks unlikely. Fee: £5million approx.
I'd love this but I doubt it will happen.(5)(17)His agent

Having banked 7m Burnley now have the funds to bring in their identified targets. These are well known to be:

Jason Shackell
Bret Pitman
Oliver Norwood
Adam Clayton(15)(16)Burnleys spendings

Steve Davies and James Bailey-2.5 million
Bret Pitman-450k
Adam Clayton-850k

No Jason Shackell
Oliver Norwood has alot of clubs offering
him a contractI think you will find the total was 7m INCLUDING ADD ONS, so you will not receive 7m up front.My brother taught Oliver Norwood when he was at Fulledge Colts youth FC, he is so proud of him, no matter what club he goes to, but he would be so proud if he plays for his hometown club BURNLEY FC.

So come Oliver go to Burnley, Mr Paul Brooker-Carey would be so happyThe fee was 6.5M with only 3M being paid outright and the other 3.5M paid over the rest of his contractYou wont get Pitman for 450k, more like 800kIts actually six million then a million in add ons


10 Jun 2012 18:10:47
Charlton chasing the following players in the following positions ,they will not sign them all and some are either ors

Goalkeeper Ben Alnwick ,David Button ,Conrad Logan or Jimmy Walker

Right Back Gavin Hoyte ,Stuart Parnaby

Centre Backs Kyle Bartley ,Michael Turner ,Tamas Kadar Darren Purse and Darren O'Dea

Central Mid field Keith Andrews ,Hayden Mullins ,Dean Parrett , Darrel Russell and John Bostock

Left Mid field Stephen Quinn ,Anthony Wordsworth,Julian Gray or Sanchez Watt.

Striker Martyn Waghorn ,Sam Baldock or Francois Zoko(13)(27)The only impression Parrett left at Charlton was on the cushion of his seat on the subs bench!Hoyte struggled in L2 with afc Wimbledon!
No way is he championship quality, do you mean Justin Hoyle who got releasedMate, what have you been smoking?

Most of these layers would struggle to make it into a league side and Powell clearly has no intention of signing them.HAHA John Bostock, Julian Gray and Hayden Mullins


10 Jun 2012 18:07:59
lancashire telegraph reporting Southampton have today completed the signing of jay rodriguez. also saying burnley are still targetting jason shackell and brett pittman(19)(6)You will not get Jason Shackell.
What is wrong with you people the paper
says you have made a 1million pound bid
we paid 1.1 million last summer.Why on earth would we accept an offer that is less than what we paid.He was our best player last season playing nearly every
game.even a 3.5 million bid would be rejected as Barker will be back for the last 10 games or so and if derby make a promotion push.The Barker and Shackell would be key to premier league successChill out, just saying what they put in the paper, doesn't mean I said it will Happen3.5m wouldn't be rejected? What are you high?

With Southampton completing the signing of striker Jay Rodriguez from Burnley, they are set to let Lee Barnard leave on loan for 6 months with the chance to extend it until the end of the season in January. Crystal Palace are leading the chase.

Jason Puncheon is once again attracting interest with Crystal Palace, Millwall, Blackpool and Bolton all interested. Palace have already made an offer of around £750k which is set to be accepted if Southampton can strike a deal for young right back Nathaniel Clyne (Puncheon will then be included in the deal plus around £2.5 million.)(23)(8)The WALL have NO MORE interest in Puncheon 100%!Jay rod what a waste of moneyReturn on investment will be 100% in 12 mos. Certainly not a waste of money.^ 21 years of age. Englands next big thing? ^Signals are that Saints have some further business brewing with Palace, following the loan of Martin, and whether through Barnard or Puncheon, it could equally be for Zaha as Clyne.Wouldn't say Jay Rodriguez is a waste of money, for 7 million, with his record in the Championship I'd say it could turn out to be a good buy for them. Despite that, I do wonder what will happen to Lambert and Sharp now. I can't see any one of the three wanting to play second fiddle to the others.

About Puncheon, I'd happily have him come to Palace. Despite having Zaha on one side, Scannell hasn't really established himself on the other wing, the experience would be great. Although I had heard you were going to offer Butterfield to try and tempt us to sell Clyne to you. Myself I'd prefer Puncheon, though both of them would be great!- Palace fanWe dont want puncheon and clyne is not going to southampton, he`ll either go to a top 6 club or he`ll sign a new contract. we`ll take barnard cos he knows where the goal is, maybe he could remind murrayFair points palace an although I believe jay rod is a long term replacement for lambert and could play out wide, you've got a good centre back in MartinHow is he a waste of money, one of the best strikers in the championship and hes only 22. Good signing and he will improve a lot, when he grows out of Southampton he will go for a profitBarnard's a top player, he could of been huge for saints if not for his injuries (and bottling people) he knows where the goal is and would be quality for any champ team, i hope hes involved in a possible zaha deal, but only on loan.Murray knows where the goal is but hasn't had the support and a new partner in crime would help him barnard or even a crafty bid for lambert if he doesn;t want to play second fiddleLee Barnard was found innocent at Salibury Crown Court. Case closed.Wtf craffty bid for Lambert, he will be main strikerYou will never sign lambert!Barnard was good in league 1, Probably be decent enough in the championship but is surplus to requirements at saints now really.
"Cheeky bid for Lambert"
He's just won championship player of the season, golden boot and back to back promotions. And he'll miss out on prem football to drop down and play for a Midtable championship club?? have a word!


10 Jun 2012 18:04:06
collins to leave shrewsbury(22)(6)I doubt it..he is too loyal. But who are all the teams interested??Watford are favsHe's on his way to Watford"Too loyal"? What a strange thing to say, unless you know him personally, you have no idea as to his views on loyalty. He is not a Shrewsbury lad or a youth product and has only been with Shrewsbury for 18 months- can't quite see why he would have too much loyalty. Seems like he's off to me.He likes it at Shrewsbury. I just hope nobody has come in for him as surely if he had no attatchment personally to the club he would be gone.
He is on holiday


10 Jun 2012 18:01:26

Neil Warnock is being lined up by the consortium trying to gain control at Nottingham Forest to replace Steve Cotterill.(6)(17)Old news, where have you been for the last fortnight?I'm a leeds fan i would not like to see this happen but with all the uncertainty at leeds i can see this happening.
plus he will have money to spend.

southampton fc have signed jay rodriguez for 6-7 million pounds for four years

source sky,saints {Ed003's Note - It says a substantial 'undisclosed' price,more than likely £5m with potential add ons to £7m}(21)(11)

Jay rod signed 4 year deal at saints - fact on website...first quality young English signing and more to follow I bet...(19)(9)


10 Jun 2012 17:41:24
All you doubters have now been
proved wrong, as Jay Rod has
now signed for Saints(19)(9)We will always have doubters no one give us credit but all us real saints fans are the ones that count jealousy is a fickle thing coyrWhat doubters? all Burnley fans knew he was leaving.Wasnt Burnley that were doubting. Not sure why soton receive so much bad press on here. They have had an unbelievable couple of years and seems some butter folk can't hack it. But the reality is saints do have a bucket if cash (7mill for Rodriguez should suggest that) and are up and coming and play great football.Well done you've signed a player who has never played top level football...only team in for him as well....speaks volumesCompared to the Money paid for strikers with a lot less ability like Kenwyne Jones, Steven Fletcher and Connor Wickham who had never played top flight football it's a great deal - not too mention the money paid for Andy Carroll!^ Yet! excluding of course England U21s"Well done you've signed a player who has never played top level football"....We have signed one of the hottest prospects outside the Premier League...So yeah it is well done to Saints!Yeh - its only taken you about 12 months to get him.Sounds like a lot of pompy fans are very jealous that saints have ambition.. good luck to you saints and to Jay ... i think he will prove all the doubters wrong... 7m well spent ..... up the claretsA certain striker from ''BURNLEY'' isnt enough to survive in the premier league..SAINTS are creating a hype as if they have secured the signing of Messi or Ronaldo !Norwich signed lots of players who had never played in the Prem last season and they did well-not having played in the top flight before is a lazy argument-after all, until any player had played in the top flight, he hasn't got that experience!


10 Jun 2012 17:35:27
Jay signs for Saints its on our official club site!!!!!(22)(9)Great signing for you there`s every chance he will go on and play for England .Good luck Jay we'll miss youGreat signing and I believe he was 5 million rising to 6.5 depending on saints survival - good deal I thinkCheers Burnley. We're used to our best players being sold on and know it sucks. Hope u boys can use money to move forward and push for promotion.

10 Jun 2012 16:36:54
qpr and westham are locked in a two way battle for celtic midfielder wanayama(13)(14)Never going to happen! many may not know him but he will be playing for a much(one of the biggest) bigger club in the future. he likes it at Celtic with the history/fans/charity as well CL(which he loves and wants to play against the best clubs in europe and not just epl clubs) and still 3 years on contract. unless you pay 10+mill(but we will not sell him until a few years, hope keep him) cause he is going to be a GREAT player. he is going to stay at Celtic and would only move to one of the top clubs in europe, whats better about him is that he is down to earth and not easly turned buy money.He said himself he wants to go to the premWhat you reading newspapers...he didnt say that it is just bad and made up.I don't recall a quote from WanyamaThere was no quotes from him saying he wanted to leave , fabricated storyWanyama wants to stay in parkhead. It was all made up by the daily record that he was leaving!The newspaper quoted his father who says his son has no intentions of leaving celtic this season but would like to play in epl at some pointMoney always talks in football and the truth is QPR have a shed load of it. I guess if they want him they will put a deal together and we'll see how celtic and the boy react. Before you start with all the small club no history small fan base remember as i said talksMoney does talk so if your club puts in a 14mill bid then he might be yours. but he will not go cheap even though he plays in spl because he is a beast and could/will be one of the best. but i can only see him going to a even bigger club then Celtic like one of the top 4 in epl and a top la liga, seri a club. which i think epl has a lower chance because they will not pay the price for a spl player where as other Europe clubs might even though he would like to play in epl one day.He's good enough for most Premier League teams - no point in signing for one of the worst ones to spend all season fighting relegation. Kevslug.Perhaps he wants to play for the real hoops (qpr) and not sum team in a lousy leagueCeltic are probably, realistically about 40x bigger than QPR...and only if you have at least 15millionCeltic Gave QPR ALLTHE MONEY FROM A FRIENDLY MATCH A FEW YEARS AGO BECAUSE THEY WHERE SO SKINT I WAS AT THE MATCH HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED.Bri Plymouth celtic pcsQPR hah lousy league doesn't mean lousy team, Celtic are 40 times bigger as someone said and that's being kind. let's face it outside the top 5-6 in the EPL the rest of the clubs are overpaid and poor in general.


10 Jun 2012 16:35:27
charlton are set to sign Dean Parrett from tottenham for 400k. the youngster had a loan spell at charlton at the arrival of chris powell and is said to have left an impression(8)(2)400k as if.Total rubbish about parrett... charlton will announce signing of Keith Andrews following Euro2012. CP wants even more goals from midfield and sees him as the ideal partner for Hollands. CP wants experience rather than young potential.

Solly rumoured to be off to West Ham -I fear he would be a bench warm at the very best in premiership. For his career he should play in championship and enjoy 1st team football. Great season for us and should stay to enjoy the good times

Also thing we need a striker (experienced) and a backup centre backAbsolute rubbish Parett is very average.

With Kyle Lafferty on the horizon of Huddersfield Town, Lee Novak has been told to find a new club.

This should spark interest from numerous clubs from all leagues including West Ham, Derby, Swindon and Fleetwood(5)(33)Maybe fleetwood and swindon, but not west ham, hes a big clumsy oaf! hail hailAre you seriously saying that a striker could join west ham (premier league) or fleetwood(league 2). there wood not be a league 2 striker playing in the prem or viisa versaClearly you dont know who he is then cos hes not big or clumsy he's small n fast and not a bad finisher, granted he's not premier class but not for the reason ur saying, just putting things about him cos u've not heard of him!Lafferty ye probs coming but Novak aint going nowhere!This would be good if trueNovak is Staying put FACTNo way super Novak is leaving huddersfield town, 1 of towns best players last season. Is work rate is outstanding u can't buy the kind of attitude he has so stop posting utter rubbish please. JohnNo chance of lafferty goin to HTFC, you couldnt afford his wages, also he wants top flight football, not championship footyGrayson has already announced his departures... Novak isn't going anywhere sunshine. Cracking player wo will do well in the Championship, but bless your cotton socks for the thought.... (Terrier)We can afford what we like deano sold his company for 200 million so laffertys wages is no problemAfter JR, Novak is Huddersfield best scorer, why would they let him go.If his work rate is as good as claimed then Paolo will 'ave him, provided 'udders really are letting him leave that is.We cant afford Laffertys wages?! i'd hardly say Rangers are in a secure financial position...
He wants to leave, had a fall out with Manager, We can afford his wages easy, we're very financially secure...Deano sold his card company for just over 300m. and he's already thrown bags of cash at the club, ye am sure we can afford laffertys wages,and the state rangers is in he's bound to jump ship!Novak is staying. TOP PLAYERLee Novak is a brilliant player, no chance of him leaving Huddersfield!!Novak is coming to Swindon, get in!!Would love him at Swindon but doubt it would happenNovak is going nowhere

Leicester to step up interest in Charlie Austin(Burnley) and Tom Ince(Blackpool) next week(6)(30)I can't see Tom Ince going anywhere in the ChampionshipSame with Charlie. Why would he go to Leicester when he's now the no.1 striker at Burnley? Ok money, ambition, all that carp, but still, he's not going to be the centre of attension.I can't see what money leicester can offer the most profitable club in the championship to make them part with that sort of young talent?? UTMP!! {Ed003's Note - Ince is 20 years old, he left L'pool for 1st team football and wages (on advice from his father) he is allowed to attack and his career will flourish for at least another 12 months where he is,I don't see him going anywhere either}

Jay Rodriguez has signed for Southampton. Pictures of him in a saints scarf surrounded by photographers and club officials at Limewood Hotel in the New Forest are going around the #saintsfc twitter feed(19)(6)2nd this!Saints have def signed jay rod its on.are website next target pleaseTrue all the news atm is of him signing a four year dealYep - deal done. Now on official website.
C'mon you SaintsIts on the saints website as wellYou'd think you'd signed Messi the way you lot of carrying onWe don't need Messi - we've got Lallana! Anyway we've been chasing Jay Rod for over a year - and his signing shows Saints are back in the Premier League and rapidly moving forwards. Wait until you've been in the old third division - then you'll understand."You'd think you'd signed Messi the way you lot of carrying on".....Oh sorry! How dare us for being excited about a signing, how dare a set of fans of a club who have been through hell and back and who are now back in the big time with a secure future and alot to look forward to get ever so slightly happy about a player with huge potential! How rude of us.The 'how dare us' post above superb. We've every right to be excited about the way things are going. We were 36 hours away from liquidation a few years back SO WE MAKE NO APOLOGIES WHATSOEVER so all you Saints haters out there GET IVER IT!^
"you'd think you'd signed Messi"
Why? It's big news. Smashed our transfer record, talented young player taken from under the noses of several established prem clubs. It's a lot to pay but he is a good player and only 22.
Stop being so bitter. {Ed003's Note - I think it's a case of humility more than anything,personally I think you have just made a great signing but some fans should chill a little]Ed, we're just fed up with the ste and bitterness that's all. A club gets a double promotion and is optimistic for furst time in ages and we get slated.
Ps great site and well done for your work.Im a burnley lad ,j rods will do a fantastic job for the saints,good luck to him and you guys next season ,his goals will make a difference its money well spent ,and greatly accepted.Ed 003- there are some fans who talk rubbish on here and make the rest look silly with nonsense comments but that is the same with each and every club.
To put it into perspective. What seems like just yesterday we were on the brink, there was no light at the end of the tunnel and it was grim news after grim news, almost didn't exist for a while.
New owners, new manager, new crop of young starlets, two promotions and now spending 7million on players! If the odd fan gets a little over excitable I think it's understandable! {Ed003's Note - I agree mate,you have done fantastic to come back from your troubles and congratulations,I'm quite sure you will stay up aswell (just my opinion) however you do not see the countless (smug) posts I/we have to delete through some of your over excited fans,anyway good luck I really think you have got a belting young striker in Jay Rod}

AFC Bournemouth are in discussions with Luton Town over winger Robbie Willmott. Led to believe Jayden Stockley/Joe Partington could join the BSP club on a season long loan as part of the deal.(8)(4)What is going on at Seward Stadium no signings from this manager just a load of waffle on these rumours-fact not fiction pleaseHe's made 3 signings already!!Willmott is out of contract........Groves has already stated that Partington is going to be in his midfield next season now that he is injury free, I would be surprised if he went. Stockley needs to get out on loan though as he is now way down the pecking order at AFCB.

Swansea City are set to approach Kevin MacDonald about the vacant management position.(1)(18)Ha ha ha! We're looking for a young,progressive, forward thinking manager that'll suit our style of play. That rules Macdonald out on all accounts

At the end of June Blackburn Rovers will sack manager Steve Kean, the board are hoping to bring in their number one choice Alan Curbishley who could be offered £1million to take the job. If they fail to hire Curbishley then Rovers will attempt an controversial appointment by trying to lure Eddie Howe from local rivals Burnley.

Robert Snodgrass is to leave Leeds United for £6million to join Everton.

Ben Foster to leave Birmingham City to join Tottenham Hotspur for £5million.

Birmingham City to hire Billy Davies on a two year deal.

Michael Owen is in America to hold talks with La Galaxy.

Stuart Pearce is to quit is post as England Under 21's manager and to leave at the end of year.(12)(15)Everton will not spend 6m on s/grass... i have heard he wants to go to westham.Are you real howe to blackburn??????Foster will go to either QPR or West BromHowe is going swanseaEddie Howe would not ditch Burnley its just some rubbish deluded Blackburn Rumour made up just to wind Burnley fans up!I have heard he wants to go to west sham!!!yes the daily mirror is full of the truth.lolHowe will not go to Blackburn. Don't be daft! Swansea is a possibility, but not Blackburn!Why would Eddie Howe go to bol e wood park? dont think so .... in venky`s we trust...... UTC......Owen has stables in cheshire hes developing and is going train race horses after his footy career is over he said himself he is not looking to move where he cant give his stables 100% effort and wants to stay where he lives alreadyFoster is going to West Brom definately,he will be steve clarkes biggest signinig,the rest will be free,s or unattached,also scharner and andrews will be given contracts.Am a Leeds fan... 6m for Snodgrass, where does he sign...... Good player, but is he worth that? Oh, what am I saying .... Delphi to Villa for 8m.... Nuff said me thinks

Ipswich in discussions with millwall about James Henry a long term target of paul jewells. The deal could see Nathan Ellington moving in the other direction after failing to impress last season. Jewell looking to add 4/5 more players to his recent addition elliot Hewitt,(8)(6)Ipswich are having a laugh!NO CHANCE!Nathan Ellington? The same player who accused millwall of racist abuse?

Pull the other one!Millwall fans won't like hearing this. They certainly won't want to sell Henry, although he would fit the bill as a young, hungry, athletic player.
I can't see it happening to be honest but I would like it to be true as I've heard good things about him.As if Henry would go to Ipswich it's no step up is it?James Henry loves life at the New Den and wants to HELP them to the PREM'SHIP!Defo leaving millwall then ;)Millwall premiership!!!!! how funny...


10 Jun 2012 15:25:25
Wolves are looking to bring in Michael Krohn-Dehli who scored against Holland. He is a player who new Wolves manager Ståle Solbakken is a fan of. He could cost in the region of £3,000,000(10)(7)Just cause he scored 1 goal against holland dont mean we will sign him does it jeezHmm see cus he rated at least 13 million by his clubLets stay realistic and not assume every goalscorer in the Euros is going to want to come to Wolves.Oh my god! Every semi decent player from the Euro's will be linked to Wolves. Got to love this time of year :-)Doubt it to meny prem clubs looking at himThey were going to sign the entire dutch squad in the 70,s some things never change.

Bury Assistant Peter Shirtliff has a special challenge set him by friend and manager Barker.

Centre Half Shirtliff has been tasked with contacting his portfolio of contacts to find the shakers a new wide man who can play at full back or wide left.

Pace and height are the main points the RB wants and the Boss is alleged to prefer a team of six foot plus players as he aims to build upon the over achievemnts of last season.

Jon Parkin heads the shopping list but his 5k p[er week request could stop any real Bury interest.(2)(2)Please take Mike Jones Back. I'll drive him if necessaryNicky ajose and mike jones !

10 Jun 2012 14:39:30
I would absolutely hate to have Ian Holloway as our manager, most over rated piece of garbage in Football management.
On the other hand, the Swans are looking at signing;
-Giovanni Dos Santos (on loan-never given real chance at Tottenham, can play behind striker or on either wing)
-Dani Carvajal (on loan from Real Madrid attack minded RB competent in defense)
-Curtis Davies (Solid season with Birmingham, proven in PL)
-John Guidetti (on loan-free goalscoring form in Eredivise)
-John Gossens (replacement for Gylfi)(7)(19)So, your manager has no say in who you will sign?
Any club will wait for a new manager before any decision is made who to sign-so, basically, your post is total rubbish!Ollie has said he's not interested in the Swansea post and that's good news for us Pool fans. He's worked miracles for us so he's the dogs.Who is this muffin who made the original post? What a cracking job Olly has done for Blackpool off very slender resources, but there again he doesn't need people like me to defend him his record speaks for itself.True, because Ian holloway didn't do anything of real credibility at Blackpool! Turned them from a nothing club at a premier league club. I would love to have holloway at my club.Please dont forget youre only in the Prem because Rodgers is a good manager...Odd's on to drop back into the Championship after this season....even more so because youre only good player has jumped at the chance to join Liverpool......Holloway far to good for you and will eventually join a large club (Like Cardiff...ROFL)Dos Santos is Wigan bound.Lucky Howe is coming then. Holloway v Howe....... Discuss {Ed003's Note - B'pool, Budget 7.8m 5th place v Howe, Budget 13.8m 13th place}Any team that gets to the prem has to have a good manager... so that is a nul point... Holloway has made Blackpool promotion contenders, ex prem team and one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the championship... you get more than your money is worth watching Blackpool and the play-off final proved that West Ham were a joke... Heads up Carlton its another one for you...The OP doesn't know anything about Ollie, or what he has achieved on and off the field.Curtis davies isn,t good enough, why did villa get rid, did ok for blues in championship,that,s his level,best to steer clear.

Man City have offered Tottenham Adam Johnson, Emmanuel Adebayor and cash for Gareth Bale.(15)(18)And cash? That wouldn't be a good deal for City. Bale is overrated.It would have to be a huge amount of cash, who would pay anything for Adebayor given his salary demands and why would Spurs want Johnson?Good deal both Adam an emanual faded at city bale will be a great adition

ex norwich striker a wilbraham is wanted by crystal palace. he is a free agent after being released by city(15)(5)Everyone's known that for weeksPlease dougie no no no, he`s nearly 33 and scored 2 goals in 22 games for norwich last season. we`ve got too many strikers who dont know where the goal is.He would be a good signing for palace, most of them 22 games were from the bench. He gives 110% and puts himself about. He would do a good job for you.Bring in gianfranco zolaConnecting dougie:
what do you call a man who burried himself in sand... doug!!2nd guy who commented get you facts right...last season he started 2 and came on 9 timesWhat do you call a man with a spade in his head...

Derby County have shortlisted 5 strikers that they would like to sign for next season. They are:

Sam Vokes
Nicky Maynard
Sam Baldock
Johnny Russell
Jamie Murphy

He will be attempting to sign two of them with Maynard and Baldock top of his list.

Nigel Clough has also got his eye on Southampton playmaker Guly Do Prado who looks set to fall out of avour following Southampton's promotion to the prem.

Other signings are as follows:
Jacobs (deal nearly complete)
Ogude (in talks with Valerenga this week)
Pearce (yet to make a bid)

All these transfers funded from budget origianally set with the additions of Bailey, and Davies deals.(10)(14)He will be signing Maynard and Russell
their his prefered options.

Daniel powell bid has been made
Krystian pearce is to join derby after
a bid was accepted last week
Jacobs has already told friends and family
hes moving to derby.
Derby have offered 350k for ogude and contract talks will start asap.
Paul Dixon Has been offered a contract
along with Karleigh Osbourne but with
other clubs offering contracts the players are thinking over their optionsAlso we are not getting Guly do Prado
but A suprise transfer of ex favourite
loanee Alberto Bueno.Its all over twitter
and News updates.He has a release clause of 450,000 and has been in good form in spain he will be our Attacking MidfielderThe is no way Maynard will go to DerbyNo its not all over twitter. You guys are deluded. Derby have not got the funds to buy such luxury players (derby fan)Maynard has only just moved on to West Ham. Surely they won't release him that quickly?Deluded?
If you are a derby fan you would know the following things.
Nigel has a starting transfer budget of 1.7 million

with Burnley offering 2.5 million for
James Bailey and Steve davies

.Chris maguire leaving for 600k + to
Watford,Sheffield wednesday or Dundee united

Miles addison 175k+ to Coventry,Bristol
city and Charlton

Lee croft to Oldham or St Johnstone

Ben davies to Shrewsbury.

That gives him a Final Transfer budget
of 5-6 million
with 4 of those players being free transfers how isnt it possible you need to stop putting a downer on the club.The new owners have made finances secure.
We have upgraded Youth Facilties and
Boast some of the Best Talent in the Country.For those who say Clough Out?
Are the Deluded ones.He has been one of our best Manages since Clough senior
and you will see why this season.He producing Excellent young players Hendrick,O brien and Naylor.No. You have 0 proof our budget is 1.7m. You make stuff up. We have a strict wage bill and can't afford these players. Clough and Glick have already come out and said we have to sell before we buy so i dunno where you're getting all this "transfer news" from. Sounds like you're making it up.Hold on.. When did Tom Glick and Cloug say we needed to sell to buy. The quote of Mr Glick was we do not need to sell to buy players.
You really need to start supporting the club, not just bagging the Management and team off. From a season ticket holder born in Ashbourne living in London away and home....Hahah do you think with a transfer budget of 6million that derby would be finishing 12th?Where has this 1.7m figure come from?


10 Jun 2012 13:59:16

A deal between Yeovil Town and goalkeeper Chris Weale will be struck over the next week. The sticking point has been over Weale's wages but Yeovil are waiting for confirmation that they will receive £20,000 from nPower for winning an online competition. Weale is keen to return to his hometown should the the wages be sorted(6)(6)I believe we can get weale but we cant pay his wages and exeter won the fanpower stadiumUm no Yeovil won the fanpower stadium shootout and exeter won the stadium filler.Exeter didn't win, Yeovil did!Yeovil won the 20k from fanpowerstadium, Exeter won the 10k there were 2 parts to the competition.
If Weale is coming to Yeovil he knows he will have to take a pay cut. No player would drop to Yeovil without expecting less moneyThe 20k is not going to or allowed to be used on player transfers.

10 Jun 2012 13:42:34
Eddie Howe is not leaving Burnley. He has come out and said this. He is committed to the club.(14)(6)He said that at Bournemouth too, then 2 days later...............Thats what Paul lambert said to Norwich and Brendan Rodgers said to SwanseaDon t beleive him
he said the same at
if offered more money
he wil goIt's all about the club that comes in for him. Like at Bournemouth, he rejected a couple of clubs such as C Palace and then when the just relegated Burnley come in for him, he came :) Can see him going to Swansea if they offer it to him.


10 Jun 2012 13:40:32
Carlisle have confirmed 2 experienced players coming in soon, this is on top of replacements needed for any out of contract players who do not commit to the club, anyone any ideas or thoughts on who they might be?, cheers(4)(2)Stuart Parnaby & Daniel NardielloThink 1 is cadamarteri or have u already signed him?Nardielo signed for Rotherham I say cadamarteri and parnabyOne is defiently parnaby don't no about nardielloDaniel nardiello has gone rotherham.Oh yeah, i meant Cadamatri, whoops!Clarkson to signThe first player [mentioned ages ago] and now confirmed in Greg Abbott's press interview is Mike Edwards from Notts County. Not the youngest - but a very decent defender!


10 Jun 2012 13:46:57
Recently released Barnet striker Izale McLeod will be joining Oldham this week on a free transfer. He will sign a 3 year contract with a basic salary of £3,000 a week but with big goal and win bonuses. The deal will be announced this week and will be made official from the 1st of July.(5)(22)This guy is going to be a busy fella according to this site he is due to sign for nearly all the clubs in legue 1!3000 a week with bonus's. U avin a laff mate. We could probably get 4 players for that.Thats rubbish he wants to stay local to london for his family its a load of rubbishDickov wouldn't waste so much money on one player as no one player is bigger than the club at oldham.Going DoncasterGoing doncaster...... Why ? Is he a big racing fan or summat ? Dont want him at Oldham anyway, hes average, would rather the Shefki signI am a Oldham fan i hope & pray that Shefki is NOT at Oldham next year - He Not good enough !I can confirm the rumour, but deny the wages. we are talking around 1700 not 3000So 16 goals in a poor team is NOT good enough then, who would you like instead, maybe mario gomez would make you happy ? should he have a good tournament that isShefki scored 16 goals. However, 5 of them were in cup games. So in his 41 league appearances, he scored 11 goals. Giving him a goals-per-game average of 1 in 4. I agree that we're not the amongst the best in league one, however, a 1 in 4 goal/game, in my eyes, isn't worth the fact that he's the highest paid player. By some distance.Oh by the way. Regarding Kuqi. Reuben Reid who we've just released, is ten years younger, was paid HALF as much as Kuqi and didn't rack up anywhere near the amount of yellow/red cards. Oh, and before I forget, HE HAD THE SAME GOAL/GAME RATIO as Kuqi!Well your entitled to your opinion , i just think he is capable at league 1 to step it up and keep his good start to the season going. Over the last 2 seasons the WHOLE team as dropped off in the second half. Mark my words whoever else we get wont score as many goals for usGot that wrong KUQI wasn't the highest paid last season. Guess who was ???Reuben was overweight lazy n was just happy picking up a wageI would say robbie simpson was the highest, and to even try to compare shef with that fatty reid makes me so angry, like that guy said he was just happy picking up his wage. Kuqi was not and was not even content when he had 1 of the best scoring records in the leagueI would be a little less harsh on Reid, His work rate at the start of last season was second to none and he was the foil Kuqi needed to score his goals. Look at the stats Reid gets injured Kuqi stops scoring.Forget about the pair of them we need to try & move on as a club & the best way is with some new faces !Well said ried was best player on the team until he got injured .managements fault letting him get overwieght you dont see fatties at old trafford .alex would have had his mouth wired upSo the best way to move on is to dismantle the team every year and bring new faces ? cos thats been really successful for us in the last 15 or more years. Dont talk tripe,the more successful teams are the ones that play together longer


10 Jun 2012 13:31:24
Tottenham are interested in signing Jack Butland as a long term replacement for Brad Friedel. He will likely be loaned out to another premiership club for next season(10)(13)He isn't good enough for the premier league yet, in a few years maybeHe's League 1/2 standard at the moment - give the lad time please, he is not Jesus!

Swindon town are exploring the possibility of a part ex with Bournemouth between Matt Tubbs and Matt Ritchie. Tubbs has become surplus to requirements at Bournemouth and Ritchie is seen as the ideal replacement for Marc Pugh. Swindon wanting cash plus Tubbs but Bournemouth not keen on this(5)(21)We did not tubbs when at salisbury,why should we want him now? 👎Pugh hasn't gone anywhere and will not be sold. He has another year on his contract and will either sign a new one or will leave on a Bosman when his current deal expires.Tubbs has flopped at league 1 level so why would we swap him for another potential flop like Ritchie? He is not proven at this level. Groves has said he doesn't want passengers this seasonAfcb fan here richie won't come and tubbs won't leave end of stop bringing up richie it won't happinWhat part of you won't get Richie do you b muff fans find hard to understand?Tubbs is not Surplus to Requirements and has stated that he does not want to leaveI believe the post said "Swindon were exploring the possibility"...... I would get into a battle of wits with you Swindon fans to appears you are all unarmed........Richie was player of the year the season before last when we were in div1 so how can he be unproven at this level?Why would Ritchie come and sit on a bench at Bournemouth when he can play every game at Swindon?Player of the year the season before last? Was that the season you went down without a wimper? Oh right it was.... UnprovenAre yuou having a laugh why would we want Tubbs he wont cut it at L1 as L2 is his max level. No Thanks we'll keep Ritchie and he wont go to Bournemouth its a step backwards. Small club - small crowds dodgy chairman. He'll stay at Swindon he likes playing under Paolo.Tubbs surplus to requirements? He has been injured, we signed him for the long term and thats that! Ritchie however may be bought if Pugh leaves but i don't think either deal will happen.Ritchie will never go to Bournemouth. He wants to further his career. When he eventually leaves Swindon it will be to a Championship side , not a tin pot club.Tractor rage from the Swindon boys, attendances don't win you football matches!Ha Ha, we won plenty last season, ritchie wont join bornmuff i would put money on it, fyi bmuff are div 1 like us with similar if not smaller average attendance. As for history maybe your rich chairman can buy you 20 thousand fans to go with your average 7 thousand so you can actually feel like a big time charley club, other than that your average like us.^^^^ I like this Swindon fan above, he's the only one of them living in the real world and to be fair he's given a pretty honest assesment of both clubs. Take a bow son

Balraim Chainrai is considering Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee for the role of Director of Football at Portsmouth FC.(5)(14)Huh why is he thinking of sacking appleton in a month time and then appointing him can't be true where did you hear this ?As long as he is happy to be paid in the currency of buttons.Has Chanri taken over at Fratton again? As far as i know they are still in Administratiion.I hear chainrai leaving when he finished getting his money back FACT^cva been given to creditors to see if he can return looks likelyLevi Kushnir is Chainrai's main advisor and he suggested bringing in someone with experience of the lower leagues as a steadying influence at the club. It could well be McGhee.So it'll be a temporary appointment then, as Chanrai will be gone by Christmas.Chainrai may be gone by Christmas but it'll be Christmas 2015 because to get any decent money back he knows Pompey will need to be playing in the Championship by then. McGhee could be the right man to help achieve that objective as a link between Chanrai and Appleton.Can not see any additional 'administration/mgt' being added as this will only aggrevate the wage bill.


10 Jun 2012 13:24:33
Derby midfielder Craig Bryson has been linked with Celtic for 2m(4)(11)Try 4million at leastTry 5 millionWill not moveIm a derby fan, if anyone wanter to sign craig bryson they would have to pay big money 5m+ he won all 3 of our player of the season awards by some distance a head of jason shackle who club value at 3.5m and both our top goal scorers!Is this the same Bryson who played with Kilmarnock and was bought for 350'000 . Now he's worth 4m , 5m . That's really cheered me upScott browns twice the player of bryson never mind wanyama kayal etc and 5 million when derby got him on a free transfer. never going to happen! keep him.350000, sorryBryson aint good enough,end of conversation.

Just found this site, a couple of days ago i was in a location in Southampton where a couple of saints fans were talking about Jermain Defoe coming in Jay R refuses. Any one else heard this one?(1)(23)I would rather have Defoe than Jay...I would rather have Jay-a 22yr old, with the potential to develop within the team spirit that Saints have. Can't see Defoe fitting in.Jay Rod 100% signed for SaintsWell we have signed Jay Rod now!Do not want defoe
jay rod signed

QPR are intrsted in a number of players however some are not as true as others.

GK: Netherlands report that Swansea goalkeeper has been contacted with QPR - Swansea will not let go of Vorm he still has a long time left on his contrzct and his contract, therefore Swansea will most probaly reject all offers.

Foster - This seems much more likely than Vorm as Birmingham have agreed to let him go as he does not want to play championship football, and with West Brom contacting other keepers he look set tpo sign for QPR for just over 4 million.

Forster and Gomes - Celtic have nearly tied up a deal to bring in Forster so that QPR deal look unlikely and Gomes has not been contacted by QPR and that is 100% factual he has not been contacted, however the rumour appeared due to the keeper wanting to move else where to get first team football, however he wanted to stay in London. With Robert Green leaving and possibly going to spurs West Ham fans watch this space? Gomes to west ham?

Green: This looked likely 5 days ago now all speculations have been blown away, however West Brom seem close to signing him on a free, which would mean Foster does not have a choise of returning to Hawthrons meaning he will go to QPR.


Taiwo: He does not look set to sign for QPR as Benfica are poised to take the left back from QPR's reach.

Samba: Looks unlikely because he has still got alot of time left on his contract, however personally he would be intrested in a move back due to the racism incident and the fact that Mark Hught signed him on a Blackburn.

Danny Simpson: This one look very likely because Simpson said he would prefer a move to London, however Norwich are still instrested. Fulham are aslo hot conteders to get his signature. QPR look second favourites behind Fulham, however QPR seem more eager to fill that position and allow Onuoha to drop back to cover centre back and sometimes right back when Simpson is out.

Midfielders -

Diakite: He has signed a deal worth just over 3 million, and although QPR has announced nothing the Nancy website has confirmed he is now a QPR player.

Adam Johnson: I can fully confirm this will not happen liverpool are instrested and the 18 million price tag will put QPR off.

Nigel De Jong: Pretty sure QPR are tryi g to build a Man City midfield, but this seems more likely than Johnson as De Jong has lately seen alot of the bench and has played under Mark Hughes before, also QPR need another deep lying holding midfielder and De Jong fits the bill.

Victor Wanyama: This rumours has just come out that QPR has targeted Defensive MIdfielder Wanyama seems possible but dont know much else on this rumour.

Victor Moses: Wigan Boss and Manager has said Moses is going no where END OF THAT!

Diame: He is on a free contact and with Villa and QPR chasing in signature, he will most probaly be in the PL next season. QPR will face tough negotiating to persuade Diame to snuff big name clubs.


Andy Johnson: Andy Pandy makes sense because having played under Mark Hughes with Bobby Zamora it seems quite likely, however will QPR be smart enough to look at the age of all the strikers thats why I do not think he will return to Mark Hughes strike force.

Giroud: Unlikely, however if QPR can meet the release clause of 12.8 million and can give Giroud enough wages and persuade him who knows? We all know QPR can splash the cash in wages so why not? Montipieller have to let him go if a club meets the clause, therefore the people who say the club will not let him go, THEY WILL HAVE TO!

Defoe: Personally I think he is very underrated! He
he is a very good striker, and does not get enough credit. He is desperate not to move away from White Hart Lane, however with Redknapp not certain about his future QPR could be one of the favourite to Land his signature. Around 10 mill.

Hooper: There has been alot of specualtion Hopper will leave this summer, there was in January but it didnt happen so why will it happen now? It will happen now because clubs no there fate wether there going up or down, and alot of the premoted sides such as West Ham and Souhtampton are fighting for there signature. Also QPR are said to be intrested, and with Hooper wanting a move to The EPL he may well be hot favourite to sign for QPR.

All rumours come from reliable scources or personal involvment within the club. (Part of the QPR media team)(3)(27)Clearly dont no nothing giroud has a 50mill release clausePart of the daily record propeganda machine you mean!Would almost definitelyt faced this sack if you were part of the QPR media team, spreading transfer information all of the web, i got in trouble on my apprentiship with swansea for posting something on a facebook group about the Danny Graham signing.Doubt Foster will go to QPR he has already said he wants to stay in the midlands.The person who posted the first comment it's a 12.8 million release cause !Hope we get some of them Forwards would love hooper and Danny Simpson !Would absolutely love having Adam johnsonGiroud has a 12.8m release clause, his manager said he's worth 50m in todays market, all they'll get it is 12.8The Giroud release clause is reported to be 12.8 million its a figure repeated in all the rumours about a move to England for him. The 50 million is what his current club value him at can't see him going to QPR but there's no saying what wenger will do which may leave the door open for a move to loftus rd. Lets not forget the reality of football and that is money talks. I can remember when brazilian and italian internationals started turning up at middlesbourgh. QPR do seem to be a club with ambition and throw in wealthy owners and a willingness to take on a big gamble.Villa are a bigger club by far.....a bigger club does not make for a nicer club, I would rather support little old Norwich, local fans supporting tne team 100%, no glory hunters.....OTBCTo the person who said 'Clearly dont no nothing giroud has a 50mill release clause' well for a start it's 'know' and the release clause is reported to be 12.8M, not 50M, so before you post obnoxiously, get your facts straight.Foster hasnt said he is staying in the midlands, he said he would prefer to. He will probably go to QPR tgough because of moneyHooper isnt leaving celtic he's staying he said he's happy at celtic and he won't leave because he will playing champions league football next seasonHooper said he wants to stay with celtic for another few years but would someday liek to go to the epl and even if he did go this summer i can only really seeming him go to southampton to join up with atkinsYe so basically saying he wants to stay in the midlands!Foster will be an Albion player next season 100%. He's already said he wants to remain living in the Midlands and is unwilling to spend hours travelling. Albion need two keepers and he will be one of them.Foster will be at west brom as he wants to stay in the midlands, he has a young family that would not want to move his kids out of school.No one likes Villa. Tecnically they are insolvent. The kitty is empty. Only budget will come from sold players.

hull city possible ins (we wont get them all stevebruce is only after 4-5 players so calm down about how many names
craig gordon
dave jones
keith andrews
martins (maybe)
michael turner
josh king(4)(21)Bruce has already said that he wont be going for campbell or turner.No chance with f campbellYou couldnt afford gordons wagesWe have a chance of getting

We need another keeper, a center back as cover for hobbs and chester , and a new forward to make sure matty fryatt makes his mind up. he wouldnt sell his hull house and move his family down south for nothing would he?He didn't say he isn't going for them he said it is unlikelyLiam Cooper is more than adequate cover at this level, in fact, he was very good in the last few games of the seasonCooper is a decent centre back and has some potential, but if we're pushing for promotion then we need a reasonably experience centre back to partner ChesterHobbs scheduled back in Sept/Oct?

charlton will sign quinn and andrews by the end of the month(3)(16)Quinns signing for Ipswich this week.Andrews going to huddersfield mate!I am a charlton fan and Powelly has left it to late to sign 'quality' players. We are going down mate. Shef Wed + Huddersfield are better teams than us!Andrews ain't going to Huddersfield we are paying more I can confirm, and Quinn is coming to us, he met chris powell a while ago and CP watched him and McGuire in the PO final ( which you lost ahah )MATE, andrews wants to go to a club which is moving up (Charlton), not one that will be lucky if they move down with any dignity intact (Huddersfield)To start with why would anyone who has played in the Premier League this season go to Huddersfield who came fourth in League 1? I was surprised when he was linked with us (CAFC) but we would certainly be a more appealing destination than Huddersfield (not that I have anything against HTFC). As for Quinn signing for Ipswich, this may or may not be true but if we are interested then we would be a better club for him to sign for as we are a team on the up who will likely finish upper mid table according to the bookies whereas ITFC are going nowhere and will be bottom half again. Can see Quinn going somewhere with more ambition and potential to Ipswich whether that be CAFC or notI'm not a htfc fan or a cafc fan,but I can confirm that kieth Andrews has agreed to become a huddersfield player I'm also 99% sure that a fee with Leeds has been agreed for Adam Clayton.After watching Andrews play for Ireland today, Huddersfield can have him...Yes a team that came second and a team that won the play offs are better than a team that equaled the league record set by fulhum. Get with itAnd who dented that record?? CAFCI can't for season to begin then we'll see who finishes higher hudds or charlton, watch the cafc fans crawl back under their rock when hudds start climbing the tableAnd who dented that record? CAFC

Actually it was Bournemouth and Peterborough ;)No it was charlton!'I am a charlton fan and Powelly has left it to late to sign 'quality' players. We are going down mate. Shef Wed + Huddersfield are better teams than us!'
clearly about as much of a charlton fan as iain dowie.... charlton are reportedly signing baldock and liam lawrence

Premier League new boys Southampton are set to offer Australian free agent Lucas Neill a one year contract(11)(18)I have heard this too. Think it's going to happen sooner rather than later too!He isnt a free agent is he? I swear he plays in United Arab EmiratesWell a one year deal would be a good option, if he doesn't work out he wants to head back to australia and end his career there anyway. he could cover the left cb role whilst we sort out poor dan seabournes situationHe's getting on a bit, how old is he now?^ What about Hooiveld?His middle eastern club released him earlier this month, he is 34 but could offer some good experience at the back.


10 Jun 2012 12:04:21

Heard from a reliable source within stoke city that michael owen has signed a pre contract that is 40k a week pay as you play.

Negotiations with robert huth have stalled and will recommence on tuesday.(4)(19)Why would he sign a pre contract if he's a free agent? He's had talks with Stoke last week but not signed anything.

any real reading news??????(5)(11)Apparently not...Have approached Juventus about Milos Krasic. Carlos Sanchez deal just waiting on Visa...I have heard that a few clubs including Manchester United are after young Micheal Hector from Reading. Everton, Fulham and Sunderland.

striker Lyle Taylor to join Swindon on a 12 month contract following his release from Bournemouth(5)(10)Good luck to him, the potential is there he just couldn't break into the first team here. With games under his belt he could prove a great signing.How you know this?Would be a good move for him if this was true, he wasnt amazing at bournemouth


10 Jun 2012 11:10:51
Possible that Tranmere are looking at a season long loan for West Ham's Freddie Sears to play along side Ben Burgess.
I heard that Ronnie Moore was impressed with Freddie when he was on loan at Colchester towards the end of last season.
Player has also spent loan periods at Scunny in league one but percentage of wages paid by Tranmere may be a problem(1)(7)His rejoining Colchester, anyway why would he join tranmere over colchester.Why not?Because Tranmere are a bigger club than ColchesterWhy not ? colchester no great shakesColchester are better than tranmere all day long, and he has already said colchester is my home and i belong here. soColchester are a bigger club than Tranmere. Colchester have a good relationship with West Ham. Sears has also said he would welcome another loan move to ColchesterTranmere are not a big club!
Sears told a mate of mine who works at a golf course Freddie played at whilst at colchester last season that he wanted to come back for 'at least another season'In what way are colchester a bigger club ??Tranmere aren't a big club but we are bigger than Colchester. We have 2 massive clubs to contend with and who u do??? Wasnt it ur chairman who said he's gonna have to stop plowing money into ur budget? Come back when u live within ur means and see who u will sign thenColchester how can you say your a bigger team than tranmere? Ever bin to a domestic league cup final? Whose bothered about sears he's obviously rubbish otherwise he'd be goin to a championship side not done league one team with ' a good relationship ' with west ham! Tranmere will finish higher than Colchester!!If colchester are a bigger club than tranmere how is it they can barely attract 3,500 fans which is poorer than tranmere and we`ve got liverool & everton as close neighboursColchester Honours List:
Football League Trophy Runner-up 96-97.
FA Trophy 91-92.
League One runners up 05-06.

Tranmere Honours List:
League Cup Runners-up 99-00.
Football League Trophy Winners 89-90.
(runners up 90-91).
Div 1 - Now Championship - playoffs 92-93, 93-94, 94-95.
FA Cup Quarter Final 99-00, 00-01, 03-04.

Nuff Said!!Colchesters highest league finish, 10th in 2nd tier - lower than tranmere's. year founded 1937 -younger than tranmere. ground capacity 10,084 - smaller than tranmere's. no particularly notable former players in comparison to one of enlish footballs greatest strikers dixie deanWhat do you mean Colchester have no other teams to compete with. Try competing with all the London clubs, Ipswich and Norwich!How does a quarter final get onto an honours list?!
Also colchester won the conference in 92 alongside winning the f a trophy, won the playoffs in 98 and the watney cup back in the 70's after beating the all conquering Leeds side gained qualification for the tournamentThe watney cup? Watney the hell was that never heard of that an fa trophy? That's for Sunday league teams isn it or really poor lower league teams! An that's all Colchester have ever been. Good luck next season with teddy sears the goal machine..........not! Trfc82Won the conference in 92? Well done!
In the mean time Tranmere have been in the football league since 1921!Tranmere are a lot better than colchester and thats from a huddersfield fan!Tranmere are by far the better team. (charlton fan) {Ed003's Note - How mant teams do you support ? you was a Huddersfield fan a moment ago }How does the Watney cup get onto an honours list?
the FA cup is a historical trophy, the watney cup was a pre-season tournament that ran for 4 seasons and then finished!

only had 4 teams in it as well !!This is suppose to be a rumour site not a lets slag each others team siteOnly 4 teams in it but Colchester won wouldn't be on the honours list if they were the 3rd losers...

I also see that just reaching the playoffs seems to count as an honour for Tranmere; Colchester don't include this honour on their list but have also managed this! Quite a feat for a Sunday league side that beat you 4-2.4 2spanking prenton park dump weston homes england venue colchester no money chairman just paid 4 million for training ground and 1million into academy which is one of the best in league 1 and how long have tranmere spent in bottom of league 1 now every year ur in relegation fight sack hire ronnie moore sack hire les parry dont seem to recall tranmere beating col u muchThis thread ig getting rather borng now {Ed003's Note - I thought the same thing}

Reading have targeted Highly Rated Burnley Midfielder Marvin Bartley and are Ready to make a 500,000 bid(9)(7)He must be a world beater to cost all of that!
Why would Burnley sell a highly rated player when they are about to receive the best part of 7m for Rodriguez?Bartley is not highly rated at burnley, I don't think he could hack it at the top level.He's not that good. Someone's made this up because the lad was born in Reading... try harder.

Notts County to sell Alan Judge to Ipswich next week for 650,000 and use the money to bring in Jonathon Forte for 150,000 and Lloyd Sam on a free(money used on his wages)

Also Liddle,Grella and Bruce in on Monday

Although im sad Judgey is leaving we will have a better squad next year(7)(7)Notts turned down a 1million bid for Judge alreadyHope u enjoy liddle from hartlepool he was carried all last season by 35year old paul murrayWho did they refuse 1million from then?No chance we would sell Judge that cheapI Spoke to Ray Trew and he told me that we had turned down a 1million offer for Judge, But wouldnt say who from ( possibly leicester )When we have rejected bigger Offers than
650k and value him higher than a million
Why would we sell for 650k - load of crap
Judge not for sale unless silly offerTake it no chance of getting freeman
That lad is classShowumni and Dean Leacock are the players to signThey wouldnt sell him to anyone for that price - theyre holding out for at least 1million
UTTER BSThe rest i agree with thoughJudge will go. County have signed a replacement due to be revealed next weekLiecster made bid for judge the other day 1.5m havnt replied yetI think if this was true then Notts County would have accepted the offer by now from Leicester.

Swansea to approach Burnley for Eddie Howe to become new Swansea manager although the 1.5M compensation may put them off(9)(19)Very good young manager would play in the same style as rodgers didWould be a great choice but would he want to risk the reputation he is building? Brendan has left big shoes to fill and I think Swansea would struggle to match last season even with Jose mourinho at the healmBrendan suited nicely i must say but why are we still hearing brendan this , brendan that... IMO I think Slimey Brendan had it easy as we (swans) were already playing the passing game under one Roberto Martinez who i must admit is the one that saturated our team with a bit of spanish glitz that has stayed and progressed therefore I dont think there are any shoes to fill just a quality team needing a manager and if we get the right one we wont just emulate last year, we should sign a few players and progress which is what it is all about... WE ARE A CLUB and the manager is just one person.. a powerful one all be it but its a club game and Swansea are a great CLUB! Tomo...IMO I think Slimey Brendan had it easy as we (swans) were already playing the passing game under one Roberto Martinez who i must admit is the one that saturated our team with a bit of spanish glitz that has stayed and progressed therefore I dont think there are any shoes to fill just a quality team needing a manager and if we get the right one we wont just emulate last year, we should sign a few players and progress which is what it is all about...

About 400k as he is on the last year of his contract.
But if the deal falls through Howe will turn his attention
To Sam vokes for 750k.(7)(9)If youre going to make up a rumour, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do some research before you make things up...his transfer was around 1m to Bristol City on a 3year + 1 year option contract......Try looking up details on Wikipedia, base your rumour on real info & then people wont think youre a 12 year old playing fifa12......come on, it's easy if you have an IQ bigger than your age or shoe size {Ed001's Note - I would suggest finding a reliable source, with real info, rather than looking on Wiki, which is mostly messed about with by kids with no real info.}Ye 400k we paid 800k of course we will sell him for that muppetThe fee will be 1m

Neither will get him.'Evans doesn't want to be beat by Crawley'

Nottingham Forest defender Luke Chambers is currently in contract talks with Blackpool, Milwall, and Huddersfield. My sources had lead me to believe that Blackpool are in pole position for Chambers.

Chris Gunter looks set to stay at Forest for the time being with Reading not willing to offer the £3m that the Reds want. Swansea have also made an enquiry in to the talented right back but have made no formal offer.

Matt Derbyshire could be leaving the city ground this summer with a laon move to Bristol City in the pipeline. The loan deal thats currently being discussed would take Derbyshire to Bristol until January.

Jonathan Greening is a target for Middlesbrough. Tony Mowbray would like to bring in the experienced central midfielder to replace the out going Barry Robson.(5)(9)We have already replaced robbo with leadbitter, greening is to old now!The people today said we're after Chambers (derby)What is matter with everybody we have just been promoted to the Championship why would he drop down a division get a life

Derby want nicky Maynard and Sam baldock on season long loans from west ham utd. Nigel cough believes these two strikers would form a good attacking partnership at derby aling with other strikers including Johnny Russell if he signs, Mason bennett, Callum ball, Nathan Tyson. It would also fill the boots of Theo Robinson, Steven Davies and Chris maguire who are all linked with other clubs and are set for an exit.(3)(16)We are attempting to buy Maynard not loan we dont want Baldock.
Johnny Russell bids have been made
Callum ball is going on loan
Bennett will play only saturday home games
Tyson will play cover for Daniel Powell,
Jamie ward and Michael Jacobs.
Theo Robinson is Staying and he said he would relish having more strikers as he feels it would give him more desire to
score 20+ goals that he said in public he will score.

Michael Jacobs
Nicky Maynard
Johnny Russell
Daniel Powell
Krystian Pearce
Paul Dixon
Andrew Tutte.

Confirmed by Andy Garner these are Nigels
Targets.Why would Bennett only play Saturday home games? He'll be leaving school this summer...As a derby fan i think its funny how we had to play a 15 year old!Bennett is in yr 10 he is going into yr 11 next year hes only 15 not 16

McLeod will be a like for like replacement for Francois Zoko who will be announced as Charlton player next week.(4)(18)I thought mcleod has already signed for portsmouth?Francois Zoko, no thanks.Both of these are true. finally a realistic charlton fanBoth of these are true. finally a realistic Carlisle fanZoko isnt true!Hope this is true, I'd prefer McLeod over Cadamarteri.

QPR are rumoured to be interested in former Chelsea youngster Gokhan Tore. Now at Hamburg the 20 year old playmaker has won many plaudits for his performances in an otherwise average team this season. Comments from his agent hinting at a move back to west london have journalists hinting at a move to QPR.(1)(7)

ex Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is set to buy two of his former club players.

Marc Pugh (500k)
Shaun Cooper (120k)
They also set to appoint Cherries legend Steve Fletcher as first team coach.

In the deal would also see defender Clarke Carlise join Bournemouth in a player coach role.(2)(13)Carlisle is a free agent so why would he part of any deal?120k for coops?? Behave, he's just signed a new contract. Add another 600k and your somewhere nearOne was meant to be josh carmichael but isaw him last week on crutches and he will be out for12 weeks.Rubbish maybe Pugh next season but Steve fletcher isn't going nowhere he family in Bournemouth and if he was going to do anything other than play he stated he considering a ambassador role at afcb in the futureDoubt all of these transfers will happenYeah I can see fletcher doing that, most people like to retire then move from a seaside town on the south coast, small bungalow by the sea to somewhere up north..... Ummmmmmm..........Or is that the other way round?


10 Jun 2012 01:59:25
Oxford to announce the signing of Brentford right midfielder Sam Saunders.(7)(11)LOOOOL. nice dreamYeh can really see him dropin a division and oxford paying a big fee for himNow that is funny!!
Why would he sign for you....
Unless Uwe has sold him for good money?.
have you got any money?Doubt this is happening. We have little in funds to buy in and has been said by the Chairman and Manager that the squad as it stands is pretty much it for the new season. Maybe a signing her and there but thats it

Portsmouth will not be liquidated yet as The Football League can see how much progress we are making in selling players. Also this means there will be no more points deductions. Marko Futacs is expected to be on the move to palace soon, as well as Huseklepp to bran(5)(14)There most certainly will be more points deducted when you exit administration, and you havent made that much progress in selling at all..It's not up to the football league whether you are liquidated...Should be docked 20 points
for offering 2p in the
poundto creditors
taking the pi##
again like 2 years agoPortsmouth put on their site a while ago that The Football league would not issue any more points deductions due to the progress it's making.The FL have already said they won't receive a further points deduction and I know the 2p to the 1 to creditors is bad, but you wouldn't be complaining if it was your club in their position. And I know that if Reading were in this position I'd let anything happen to guarantee the survival of my club!Think you will find a few other clubs have paid just 1p in the pound when exiting Administration so stop all this nonsense ref wanting a 20 point deduction, you are obviously a Saints fan and one of the ignorant ones at that!Pompey will not be liquidated, will come out of Administyration within the next month and will not have a points deduction. The struggle will be in selling the high earners so as to begin the rebuild.Why 20 points for offering 2p? the fact is we will not get liquidated and we wont receive any further points deduction. live with itThere is still a chance of points being docked, thats a fact! Theres still a chance of liquidation, thats a fact!To the clueless person above, there is NO chance of points being docked/deducted. The Football League confirmed this


10 Jun 2012 01:39:32
Ashley Hemmings (Wolverhampton)
Brian Smikle (Cheltenham)
Ian Craney (Accrington)
are being linked with moves to league one side Walsall

Richard Taundry has left Walsall after turning down his verbal contract offer at the league one side(8)(2)He has not left walsall. get your facts rightHe has left WalsallHe has left Walsall. He was released as a free agent along time ago but he was offered a verbal contract which he has rejected. He's even talked about it in an interview with a paper (walsall fan)


10 Jun 2012 01:17:09
Paolo Di Canio's first summer signing is to be Lee Novak from Huddersfield town.(8)(19)Would be a great signing but can't see this happeningHow you know?Novak had 17 goals and 12 assists last year, do you think the terriers are going to let a play like that go ...Behave!Why would he move to a league 1 club when his current club ( town ) are in the championship and is likely to play most games? It's a big lie!No chance,why would Novak go to Swindon in League one.Hmmmm pivotal role for Town in the Championship or back down to league one...Stupid rumour, why would he go back to L1 when he got promoted, he will feature in championship plans so not going anywhere


10 Jun 2012 00:29:21
Stockport lose interest in former player Liam Dickinson due to wage demand. Could now sign for Crewe, Shrewsbury or Port Vale(15)(2)Shrewsbury are talking to him we will wait and see i think his wages will be to highBury have approached the striker via his former manager at Woodley Sports.

Dickie has been linked with Bury previously but do not rule out an offer of a trial from both Barnsley and Scunthorpe.
Keith Hill and Sir Alan Knill are both known admirers of the unsettled Northerner.Dickenson believes himself to be at least L1 calibre (not) so he would not lower himself to re-join County. That said, understand Gannon is very interested in bringing in Matt Paterson from Southend who had a very successful loan last season. County.


10 Jun 2012 00:21:49
Kyle Bartley set to be loaned out to either charlton or Watford as they are both closer to north London than rangers and there is an uncertainty about rangers wanting him next season due to the owner fiasco(11)(6)I think he'd be a bench warmer at Watford. Even when Mariappa goes we still have Nosworthy and Taylor as our starting pair.Taylor is too old and slow, he's past it and i really hope that taylor wont start for us next season, as nosworthy was bought in to replace him!It wont be charltonStarter at rangers so why would he be a bench warmer for watford who need all the help they can get to survive^ They say that every year and we do just fine. Usually finish above these "big teams" who think they're something.Norworthy was not bought in to replace him. He was bought in becasue Taylor had a long term injury. Also Taylors been a rock at the back for a few years now so show a little respect.Nosworthy was brought in on loan whilst Taylor was injured! Then we were just happy with how good he was and managed to buy him. To be honest, after we actually bought him, he became quite accident prone... I'd like Bartley to join the club, because with the exceptions of Hodson and possibly Dickinson, we don't really have any young defenders that are worthy of even getting on the bench. And even those two are hardly will be charlton if anyone ad we have a deal from the jenkinson deal, like we have one for Liverpool and inter Milan too


10 Jun 2012 00:21:03
Bradford City set to sign someone on Monday, expected to be a striker.(10)(11)Who is itNunez .Ramon nunez?I have it on good authority that Nunez from Lds will sign in the next few daysAndy Gray


09 Jun 2012 23:22:49
Derby to make an attempt to sign striker Simon Cox from West Brom after deals to sell James Bailey and Steve Davies go through(12)(3)We are Not signing Simon Cox his wages

Nicky Maynard
Johnny Russell

Radio suffolk says ipswich town would like to sign ex man u youngster olliver norwood.millwall are olso very intrested. But he would prefer london to suffolk. As he belives millwall will do better than town next season.(16)(21)Burnley are also interested and seeing its his hometown it seems very likely he will be going there.Isn,t ex Man U he got a new 12mth contract still Man U and got a selling price of 500kNorwood also believes in father xmas, and that your rumour is true.I would believe this not to be true as it has been confirmed that kenny is after west ham fledglings C Driver and D Potts to add some mettle to their squad as trotter is definatley on his way with ITFC getting a big sell on clause ,releasing little funds for millwall to use.No millwall are not interested


09 Jun 2012 22:49:10
Bristol City are close to capturing highly rated Liverpool youngster Suso on loan.(7)(24)Would be a very good signing for both clubs. He would provide great competition to Pearson and Woolford and maybe snatch a starting place. great young talent with very quick feet, can beat a player and also good in the air. For me he has it all!Haha. good in the air? hes 5,5 or 5,6 spanish playmaker not good in the air but got a brillant eye for pass. brillant technique also


09 Jun 2012 22:46:15
Swansea to sign - giovanni and Jonathan dos santos as laudrup will be th next manager! also he will sign will sign his son, a Denmark under 21 international- Andreas laudrup(4)(23)


09 Jun 2012 22:25:50
So Huddersfield are linked with-
Sean Morrison (will happen)
Kyle Lafferty (seems legit)
Lee Peltier (will choose us over others)
stephen Quinn (possibly, not too sure)
Keith Andrews (BIG rumour)
Adam clayton (not too sure)
Iigo Caldern (not too sure)
Grant McCann (not too sure)

Overall Town ideally need a CB, LM/RM, ST and a couple of CM box to box, playmakers...(10)(31)Don't really need a LM, we've got Danny Ward... Where we have struggled over the past two seasons is in CM, we need two really good CM's who will dictate play for usWe need this team next year:
Peltier Morrison Clarke Calderon
Hunt Andrews Clayton Ward
Rhodes. S. JacksonI cant believe we havent been linked with any Left Backs yet as this is the most important position that requires filling if you ask me. Ridehalgh good as a back up, Woods not good enough as first choice and not naturally left footed.Apparently pelts desperate to come back, defo morrinson, thought jackson would happen if lambert had stayed cant see it now, like to see clayton but actually think andrews is more likely. lafferty hopeful!
UTT!So practically a new team then? Very hopeful, but looks good on paper!Danny ward don't make me laugh hardly set
League 1 alight did he, so don't think he can
Cut it in championship, swop ward for
Laffety and that team looks good.You're all forgetting ward is only 21 and has europa league experience and prem, he's a good player, confidence was low last year, he's more suited to championship, not hoof ball.
The reason i didn't put down simeon Jackson is due to him recently signing a new contract at Norwich, it does seem like Lafferty is pretty much a done deal but cant be announced as he's on his honeymoon, and seems like we're favourites for Andrews: Hopefully but likely starting XI-
Peltier, clarke, morrison, calderon
Hunt, quinn, andrews, ward
Rhodes, Lafferty
Bench-Bennett, woods, t.clarke, robinson, gobern, novak, lee (back to 7 subs this season...)Team i would like to see :
hunt, andrews,clayton, jennings
rhodes, austin

subs: lafferty, novak, bennett, leadbetter, t clarke, woods,ward

i did like not think haha but should look to bring jennings on loan just the experience gained at bayern training ground would be enough gor next year on loan!
UTT!Correct me if I am wrong but didn't ward cost nearly a 1 million. At that price he should be able to play in north east counties. More suited to championship never heard such rubbish. Yes I am a town fan. JohnYour not favourites for andrews charlton are, we finished 20 points ahead of you and are a better club with more money to spend. All of your eggs are in one basket with rhodes tbhHe is more suited to championship... League 1-hoof ball
championship-Passing football, besides with Rhodes hopefully staying and the tall Lafferty hopefully joining we'll defo need another winger with ward to whip the ball in...League 1 hoof ball maybe but town don't play that way so he should of been good last season and he wasn't, would rather see Roberts there when he is fully fit, Roberts 1st touch a different class. JohnNa, grayson didnt have enough time to get them playing how he wanted, this season-pass and move, wards left foot is unbelievable, right isn't half bad either


09 Jun 2012 22:12:45
Eddie Howe and swansea will have to accept an agreement with burnley not to take burnleys star players once he switches clubs. Deal still far from done though as the swans are baulking at burnleys near £2million compo demands. (Howe still has 3 years on contract).(4)(33)Eddie Howe wouldn't come to Swansea, he's not good enough for Swansea. And we wouldn't pay that much for him anyway, rather get Laudrup for no compensation, and he's a better manager.Doesn't seem very legit, Liverpool payed near 4 million to Swansea for Rodgers. So 2 million of that money is very much affordable, but still I highly doubt Swansea will be interested in Howe, yes we play good football but Eddie Howe has not done anything worth being offered a job at a higher level.When you say deal is far from done. Have any talks taken place or have Swansea asked for permission to speak to him? Hardly any mention of Eddie in swansea we are all being kept in the dark as to whats going on.
As long as it's not Holloway. I know he has been brilliant for Blackpool. But I don't think he can balance a team between attack and defence. It's almost to entertaining. Don't know to much about Eddie Howe?Liverpool payed 7M for rodgers and his back room staff. Compensation wont be a problem when getting a new manager in.They payer 7m for Rodgers, but no backroom staff went with him3 staff went to Liverpool from Swansea with Brendan RodgersI believe long time jack colin pascoe walked?


09 Jun 2012 22:07:38
Doncaster set to sign Izale Mcleod after his release from Barnet also to sign Damien Reeves, Jake Speight, Grant McCann, Jon Parkin, Peter Clarke and Robert Atkinson (Fleetwood)(5)(18)I don't think Clarke will be leaving Huddersfield.It is true rovers will sigh all those playersIzale Mcleod has stated he wants to play for a team nearer his home - MK Dons were favourite as that is local to him, but more local teams now showing interest. So not sure where your source is with Doncaster, but its not going to happen....Why would clarke leave a club he loves and has just got promoted with? Stupid rumour!


09 Jun 2012 22:07:00
Bristol city Striker David Clarkeson to talk to Bristol rovers about possible transfer over coming weeks as he looks to get first team football and is interested in McGhee's ambitions with the club, A city fan who's close to the club told me this, aslong as he scores goals i don't mind :)(12)(8)Seeing as he isnt at Bristol City and a free transfer.Clarkson is a free agent and can talk to whom he likes. His contract at Bristol City has expired.Hasn't Clarkson been released by City?Watta fail.


09 Jun 2012 22:06:56
Derby rumoured to be interested in Ajay Leitch-Smith from Crewe(13)(6)This lad has great potential wouldn't mind seeing him at derby


09 Jun 2012 21:29:50
Stalin Kerkar and David Healy are set for talks next week with Derek McInnes, the Bristol City manager, about possible transfers from Rangers.(12)(14)Yet to see any manager benefit from bringing in too many players from SPL. Middlesborough dived when Strachan last attempted it. McInnes should have learnt the mistake but it appears not. I fear for City this coming season. Cant see anything other than lower bottom half and end of his tenure.


09 Jun 2012 21:26:14
Watford have enquired about Reading striker Simon Church and left back Joseph Mills.

Reading are prepared to let Church leave but not before a new striker comes in. Jo Mills is available also when a new left back arrives.(18)(3)So Probgreknyak in and church out... PLLLLEEEEAAASSSEEI do hope this is true. heard a lot of rumours about this though. Have you got any evidence?Reading bought maxi from liverpool on a freeWe have not got maxi thats total BSHope mills doesn't leave. he is better defensively than harte.Like churchy to go on loan not completely leave, as much as everyone says hes rubbish, all he needs is first team football in champ to gain bring his confidence up but i mean the leeds away game as an example, that goal was quality and i think with a bit more confidence he could be a great player.Enough of the Maxi rumours. Go on the official Liverpool website, he has said he does not want to leave Liverpool.Owww no... Please no....


09 Jun 2012 21:20:46
Reading have lost interest in Notts Forest right back Chris Gunter, after the club rejected a £2.5m offer.

Forest have asked for £3m. Neither Reading or Swansea will meet it, with the defender a free transfer in 11 months time.

Reading have also submitted a £3.5m offer to Huddersfield for striker Jordan Rhodes. Reading central defender Sean Morrison, valued at £1.5m will join Huddersfield as part of the deal, bring the total of the move to £5m plus add-ons.(17)(22)Rhodes says hes staying,end of.think morrison will still be comingIt was only 2m that got offeredRodriguez only had 11 months left on his contract but it didn't stop soton (over)paying 7m for him. No transfers would ever happen if no one bought players with 1 year left on their contracts.Nicky Hammond will not let Morrison go to Huddersfield unless Rhodes is going the other way.


09 Jun 2012 21:13:20
Port Vale are in talks with Liam Dickinson and Jon Parkin as the manager wants both players to spearhead an exciting attack next season.(4)(14)Jon Parkin coming back to donnyThe oatcake shop will be hoping this is true!


09 Jun 2012 21:08:52
Milos krasic seen on 2 occasions at readings training ground over past few weeks. This comes from someone who works at reading. Glfyi also seen a couple of times at training ground before going away on holiday!(17)(20)As much as I wish this was true, I jus can't see it happening!As a reading fan i no this is BS but would be great :PReading have matched Swansea's offer and terms, but have only spoken to Gylfi's agent so far. They are happy with the contract BUT he wants to give Liverpool first refusal. If nothing comes of that then he is almost certainly returning to Reading as Anton Zingarevich's marque signing.

You have to feel for Swansea though. Two weeks ago everything was rosey. Now they're managerless and just lost the chance of signing a very good player.Krasic has already rejected Reading's advances.

Sigurdsson is a possible as above.Yeh but that's Swansea's fault. They announced the signing before it was complete and that annoyed Hoffenheim. Don't moan when you don't hear who Reading are signing until they've signed. We do business the right way.Gylfi has been at the Reading training ground a lot after he left and was also at the Cardiff (a) play off game and the play off final so I don't think the fact that he has visited a few weeks ago means he was there to sign a contract.


09 Jun 2012 21:04:11
Stockport County needing to bring in a goalkeeper to challenge Ian Ormson for No 1 and keep him on his toes are looking at former keepers Tim Deacy, Conrad Logan, Lewis King who are among those being touted.(3)(2)

simon church(4)(34)U can only have 11 players on the pitch at one time u know!!!!!!!!!!Dont need that many keppers when you've got schemicalSome of these names have cropped up before but I doubt if City will add more than 3 or 4 players to the current squad.All of those players are better than your current squadCan't see Carlton cole or Danny Murphy happening. Reckon they will both be in the prem next year


09 Jun 2012 21:03:48

Fergie said that there 25 million pound enquiry was rejected/Laughed at with
Modric being valued at 40 million and
Tottenham refuse to sell to an English

Newcastle players have made a pact
that if the club wants to have a similar
season or to improve it they need to
keep together.Cabaye and Arfa are not

Wycombe Wanderers:


Scott Donnelly: free (after being released from contract) - Swansea City

Gary Doherty: free - Charlton

Izale Mcleod: free - Barnet

Paul Hayes: Season long loan - Charlton

Chris Hackett: free - Milwall


Scott Rendell: Season long loan - Oxford United(2)(16)There is zero chance of Wycombe getting Hayes on loan for the season. He's going to a League 1 club on a permanent deal. The three clubs linked with him are Notts County, Swindon and Brentford.Well i'm pretty sure they'd both rather play for a championship club, then a league 1 oneDon't you mean Rory Donnelly.
And swans won't release him.
Only bought him last year as a future star.
A loan deal maybeHayes has been linked with swindon but they have distanced themselves from him this week, there appears to be no interest in him now.Hackett won't join you. He has had talks with two big league 1 side's. Sheffield United being one of them.No he means Scott Donnelly actually which is what ge said?There is a scott donnelly and rory donnelly for swansea, scott was on loan during 2011/2012 seasonNo chance, the club has no money. 1/2 players will be signed. I have been told they are from L1/l2 sides and one was released due to repetitive injuriesWycombe can't sign anyone at present; they are embargo'd due to not submitting any accounts for 2010/2011 and failling to submit a prospective playing budget for next seasonWe had no money before, whats changed?


09 Jun 2012 20:16:05
jon parkin will be unveiled as leyton orients third signing of the summer as he joins the os on a two year deal.(3)(15)We can only dream.More likely to get sam parkin....He wont join orient to far away from his home in yorkshireWho was the 2nd signing1st was Sawyer, 2nd was Griffiths, doubt we would get Parkin.Anthony Griffith was the second signing. Gary Sawyer was the first.If you're dreams don't extend past Parkin you're in trouble, he's fat & lazy & lacks any pace & has no skill & a poor scoring record.Peter kitchen will join the os on a two year deal after agreeing a fee with doncaster rovers.Parkin would join a long list of fat,lazy Orient strikers who doesn't score in fact he wouldn't even be the first called Parkin to fit that description.

As for signing Peter Kitchen what would he be worth these days? what a quality player he was {Ed003's Note - Parkin and kitchen in the same post :-) }Russell Slade is lining-up a shock return signing of Steve Dawson.
Dawson has failed to make an impact since joining Barnsley,and Slade is desperate to bring his former captain back to Brisbane Road. Dawson will replace Spring, who is joining Crewe.Jon parkin has signed for Fleetwood Town


09 Jun 2012 19:57:20
Not saying this is definite but my friend is a physio and went to a course based on 'the southampton way' which was all about the training they do. She said that one of the examples they were showing was a medical for a multi million pound signing, which they had been doing in the last couple of days. So i would imagine this means it is Jay Rodriguez, but obviously nothing is definite and with interest from everton it may not go through.(8)(8)Yea he has gone for a medical but has not agreed terms yet, so a move to another club is still a possibility.Swansea have switched their attention to JR now that they have lost out on Sigurdsson.

He wont be going anywhere near Saints now.Misread that, I thought you said Psycho!Why would a player go for a medical if he hadn't agreed terms? But you are right that until paperwork is signed someone else may come in....we'll have to wait and see1. swansea havent lost out on getting sigurdson yet but there is a possibility that he will liverpool

2. where is your source that swansea are interested in jay rodriguez

3. swansea still dont have a manager so obliviously there not going to be making any bids for players until they get a new manager cracks me up how if swansea were interested in jay rodriguez that people think that suddenly he wont go anywhere near southampton so think before you say things like that because you obliviously dont know anything about football!I'm sure he would sign for a club without a manager-not. Can't see Swansea will be able to sign anyone until a manager is in place-and Saints will not wait that long.Still signing for Saints confirmed tomorrow.Swansea have lost their manager, about to get second season, shouldnt even be in the ENGLISH premier league, and wont get siggurdson. I doubt you'll deter him from joining Southampton. As for Everton, they don't have the money to rival a bid anyway, so that can be laughed off"He won't be going anywhere near saints now".
Look Swansea had one good season and hats off to them. But now Rodgers has gone you'll struggle to stay up next season. Saints are a far bigger club. JR may well not sign for saints but if thats the case he'll stay up north and join Everton or Newcastle. Trust me he won't be going anywhere near Swansea. Talk about ideas above your station!If this is true then the person taking this lecture can expect to lose their job pronto. Mr Cortese makes sure all transfer details are kept 'in house' and anyone leaking details will be out of the club within seconds of him hearing about it. The 'Southampton Way' is that all transfers in or out of the club are kept under wraps until the deal is done.

This suggested example given at a training course did not happen.Believe what you want. It was a lecture about how the physios at the club get the players ready for the games, and how it has all changed. They then moved on to talk about a POTENTIAL multi million signing but left it at that and gave no further details away. I doubt they thought telling a group of 30 physios who do not care about football, this tiny bit of info would do much.Did someone forget to tell him that Swansea were after him? Because he's just signed for SaintsWhy on earth would he have signed for Swansea over Southampton? It was nice while it lasted but sorry Swansea you were one season wonders.

Crystal Place have agreed a £400,000 fee from Jose Rodriguez of Castilla and is set to sign next week after a medical along with Marko Fuctas on a free from Portsmouth.
The club are also trying to hash out a deal for Wilfried Bony of Vitesse, the Ivory Coast forward is keen on a move to England and Crystal Palace could offer him a first team role as the club mount a challenge for promotion next season.(12)(10)Marko Futacs is under contract, so how would you get him on a free?What site does it say futacs will be joining palace ?Futacs will be released by pompey because they want players off the wage bill.
He will not be the last to go on a free transfer.Futacs is on contract though, so they can't let him go without paying off his contract and Pompey can't afford to do that! Really annoys me when people on here who know nothing about this stuff feel a need to comment...Actually he was one of the few players at pompey offered a contract at the end of the year!He's on like 1000 a week and is still under contract for the next year AND has been offered a new (longer) contract only a few weeks ago so why would we release him on a free?Because your in administration and have to slash the wages! Everyone will be up for saleRubbish rumour. Why would this Vitesse fella come to Palace when Bayern are after him? Where will we get the money from too? Stick to realistic gossip rather than the fantasy stuff!Did you not read that previous comment? we'd have to pay off his contract to release him, and we have no money to do so. Get your facts right next time


09 Jun 2012 19:51:14
Burnley are to insist on a similar deal along with a compensation package too the one that Swansea had with liverpool to stop Eddie Howe taking star players such as Charlie Austin, Danny Ings and Marvin Bartley with him should he accept impending job offer(8)(4)Eddie howe is not a
premier league standard
if swansea appoint him
you ll be going down
he s not very goodHope you have your life savings on this as he is 16/1 for the job with M Laudrup 1/2 I know who I would be backing and its not your so called tip!Are u a rovers fan in disguise trying to wind us up.swansea wont go for eddie howe,he has done nothin yet at prem chance it happening.Eddie Howe is so far unproven in the championship. If Swansea take such a gamble on him expect to join Burnley in the championship next year. I don't want to see Howe go as I would love to see him build on the foundations of this young squad (ie Trippier, Austin, Bartley Stanislas, Lafferty, Ings, Fletcher etc) but I am not holding my breath! It would not be devastating to the club providing the board are forward thinking enough to have a contingency should he go. UTCEddie plays good football and is starting to build a good team at Burnley. He's a good future manager but he's not ready for the PL yet!

West Ham in bid to sign Matias Fernandez from Sporting CP

Liverpool and Stoke also interested(7)(10)Westham have made 4.5m bid.He's worth more than 4.5m. Also, why would he join West Ham if Liverpool are interested?So he does not turn into charlie adam and sit on the bench every week.

Charlton expect to wrap up the signings of Anthony Wordsworth on 1-2 weeks, Sam Baldock in 3-4 weeks but it depends as West Ham, I can confirm, they have enquired about Chris Solly and we want cash for Solly as well as Baldock but it depends on whether West Ham mind it, Charlton have been linked with McGuire and Quinn of Sheffield Utd and we expect to sign at least one of these, most likely Quinn as Utd overrate McGuire's price tag as a few million, also Karleigh Osborne may sign he is interested, but it depends if Charlton have someone better lined up, and sources tell me that Kyle Bartley of Arsenal may join on a season long loan, he proved he could compete at Rangers which is about the same as the Championship, also both teams are in London so it would help, Chris Powell also may renew his interest in Hulk Hogan ;) of QPR as he proved he did well in the Championship with Bristol and impressed with good goals and assists for Charlton in January(8)(21)Not only is Maguire too expensive for you, he's also too good too. Expect him to go to a PL club.Ha Charlton are deluded there is no way in a million years Harry maguire will go to Carlton one because what's the point and two they can't afford him. And i'l eat my hat if Quinn goes either that's how sure I amIm sure both will go to teams in higher leagues than utd - so that does mean charlton ! enjoy league one ;)Stephen quinns on about 15k a week somehow I don't think charlton will match or beat thatHa Charlton are deluded there is no way in a million years Harry maguire will go to Carlton one because what's the point and two they can't afford him. And i'l eat my hat if Quinn goes either that's how sure I am

The point if McGuire went to us next season would be that he'd be playing in a higher division next year.It's not that charlton can't beat the wage budget it's that they don't want to go mad on wages until we establish ourselves in the championship then hopefully move higher but we could if we wanted toYour close to administration and YOUR IN LEAGUE 1!! If McGuire was wanted by a prem club something would of happened e.g a bid or enquiry or even just links but none of that has happened, he is no way a prem playerU's Manager John Ward stated the other day he has had no offers for Wordsworth so if charlton are going to wrap up the deal they will need to contact Cochester first.Considering we are paying 10-20k for a unnamed player, and neil warnock even said in an interview that that we are willing to pay a fortune for him, wages wise so sit down and enjoy league 1 next season, i'll have fun playing leeds, palace etc when you play orient, walsall etc!!!!!!!!Solly wont leave. he loves being at charlton, it would also be a kick in the teeth if he goes to west ham, east london rivals.Think wordsworth deal will happen as co u signed marcus bean and now have 6 centre midfielders'think' oh no IT HAS happened, it will be comfirmed on july 1st-8thTake a video when you eat your hat please!

Only then will he decided who to sign for with League 1 still his preferred option but his former club have location on their side for the Kendal based player.It wouldn't be out of character for Thompson to give back-word to Bradford. Again.If he has agreed to sign for us, why would he talk to Morecambe?Being a mate of our gary's lets just say his fuel bill wont be that much!Bradford would only be a last option if nobody else comes in. Who in their right mind would want to play for Phil Parkinson.

1. The massive owls are 10x wealthy then Barnsley
2. Wednesday are massive so why would he want to go to Barnsley and play on a shed ( oak well )
3. Barnsley can't afford him at a high price.
Oh and don't be surprised if Wednesday do a swap deal o'Grady for butterfieldHe is going to sheff wedO'Grady for Butterfield? What planet are you on?Why do you have to be so insulting? A shed. There is
No secrets that you are a bigger club than us and yes you will have more money. Talk football pleaseWednesday may have big history, but haven't been 'massive' for 12 quiet!We will c who is south yorshires top team soon......Looks a strong possibility for the Reds. 400k was his value when he moved from Aberdeen to Derby. HillCroft have a reputation for improving players and if Maquire wants to make the step-up in class, Oakwell would be perfect, not a Yo-Yo team like the Wendys!Butterfield in talks with Wednesday, Chris O'Grady and Mike Jones are in talks to go to Oakwell.
Barnsley have also tried to get Beevers included in deal. All of these players have been on Hills target list in last year.Wednesday may be the top team in yorshire but Barnsley are definately the top team in Yorkshire! {Ed003's Note - So it's a draw,end of ...Brill }Only thing massive about wednesday is their debtWednesday not in debt lolThat massive debt that totals 0.

Apparently Chris Maguire to watford. How would watford fans feel?(6)(10)Im a derby fan and even though im not bothered hes leaving because he hardly played.Hed played 1 start 1 sub and scored 1.He has ability but you will be getting a very lazy player not during matches where he is probally one of the hardest workest but football isnt just match days but weeks of training and he
rarely joins in thinking hes above that.Decent player, would go well with all the other strikers we're supposed to be getting such as Helguson, Futacs & CollinsHave they had a bid accepted then? Chairman was interviewed on radio Sheffield and said negotiations are ongoing between derby and Wednesday for him. Never said Owt about a bid been accepted from anyone. So I think you talk bullHe won't be joining Watford. He's off to Sheff Weds and won't need to move homePlease no.... we don't need Derby's dead wood, we did that with Forest when we got Garner and he, like Maguire are very average.You could have said the same about craig ramage but he was awesome for watfordWouldn't mind any of these players maguire seemed decent at portsmouth, futacs was brilliant at portsmouth and colins is young and decent goalscorerNot sure he is up to such a big step up as that - better he goes to sheff wed me thinks where he will be more at home ability wise - can you see him being able to fit in with Sean Murray or Jonathan Hogg - he is just not in their leagueHim and deeney would destroyWatford a big step up? You having a laugh pal? Did you go up to prem this season? No did you get in play offs? No how again is Watford a big step up, midtable team and that's it, not really got ambition or fan base to be a step up.He wasn't playing for you though. It's a step up to first team football, not a step up to a considerably stronger team.I agree (above) Derby are not the team to beat anymore.. They haven't been since the 80s/90s

£20m+ is available for Norwich and Chris Hughton to spend in the summer - McNally

It is expected that he will buy Jordan Rhodes, Nathan Redmond, Curtis Davies, Henri Lansbury, Nathaniel Clyne, Nick Powell and Robert Snodrass.

So expect a record breaking summer Norwich Fans(16)(53)Thats why Lambert left only had 50p and a bag of crisp for players so stop dreamingThat's not why Lambert left he left to go to a 'bigger' clubLook at the bbc page... McNally reveals more funds than ever - 20+mVilla a bigger club? They might of been a few years ago! But not anymore. How much money do Villa have to spend this summer? They are already being very tight with money. That's why the have still not paid any compensation to Norwich( its going to a tribunial ) and they ain't got the money to get Culverhouse(Lamberts number 2). Norwich have up to 25 million to spend on players! Confirmed by McNally . Have some of that Villa fansMcNally is taking you lot for a ride what he says is just what he thinks you want to hear take my word your get about 7or8 mill max.Norwich will go down this year. They will probably be able to remain in Championship though despite loss of Lambert.Villa are a bigger club than Norwich..Fact! You will not sign majority of those players.Lambert left because Norwich wouldn't support him in the transfer market.

Shockingly weak rubbish from the OP.1 decent season doesn't mean for a big club...especially compared to Villa1Lambert is a top manager who no doubt will do well at Villa (can't really get much worse!). He has a track record of showing very little loyalty when a better offer comes along so Villa fans if he does well, think you may get 12 months service from him until a really big job comes up. Good luck to him but he is now part of our history. Who knows how much City have to spend but Chris Hughton will be well backed by the Norwich board. Looking forward to a very interesting summer. On the ball city!Im a norwich fan but jordan rhodes is most likely going to fulham.Even if we only have 7 or 8 million, it will be enough to add a bit of quality to an already decent squad. Villa on the other hand need a total overhaul which will need far more money than is being promised to . If you don,t get Culverhouse you will struggle.Not many CEOS would lie to a club where the fans are desperately loyal to the club itself, not any one individual member. odds on most of the people commenting, saying we're going down, are either; Ipswich, Swans, QPR, or Villa. have fun finishing below us.It annoys me when people say norwich dont have money
last year we spent 15mil, this yea we have even more since we finished 12th
davis is very likely but i doubt we will get the restSome people speak such rubbish on here McNally has been straight to the point ever since he has been here sounds like people need to zip it and just wait and see what happens.Getting fed up of seeing the same old thing on here and people saying were going back down i for one believe we will be safe this year with money to spend chris hughton wouldnt of taken the job on if there were no funds available top ten finish is definatley possible with adding to the squad the good times are here to stayAnd one more thing im a Norwich Fan and villa are a bigger club than ours we all cant keep thinking were bigger than them, we have only had 1 season back in the top tier how long have they done it for?? i dont blame lambert for going but he should of gone to a bigger club than villa but i wish him well i still think tho that this season will be a great one with more money to spend Chris Hughton will buy really good players to add to the squad we need to be in prem for a good few more years before we can think were bigger than anyone else NCFC till i dieSo they couldn't afford to give Holt a pay rise but will spend 20 million. Not sure who is the most deluded, Soton or Norwich fans. Norwich will be bottom 3 for sure.I like Norwich but lets be honest all the big names in English Football are the teams that have made big impacts teams like the top 10 at the moment and teams like Southampton and Aston Villa have always had a big part in the premier league. I have a lot of respect for you as a club but its simple you don't and want have 25 million plus to spend ever! you wont attract big names and you wont ever be in the top six with the way things are run in NCFC, your team is run like a business and its stupid because its holding your team back! Lambert left because him and your owner couldn't agree. Lambert want to aim higher than 13th but your club turned around and said we want to survive that all that matters, even if we are 17th! So good luck to you next season i hope you stay up, but you wont have a budget of 20 million or any higher than that because he didnt say the amount and it will probs be in the region of 15 million or 10 million. He only said biggest backing ever as a manger to keep you interested and its workedThe norwich board didnt trust lambert with the 12m transfer kitty thats the true figure
Lambert is a poor manager culverhouse the brainsNorwich COULD afford to give Holt a pay rise, but rejected an extra year extension on his contract due to them deeming him to be too old. If you read into the subject rather than posting utter rubbish you'd understand Norwich do have money to spend."So they couldn't afford to give Holt a pay rise but will spend 20 million. Not sure who is the most deluded, Soton or Norwich fans. Norwich will be bottom 3 for sure."
Norwich fans deluded? you apparently can't even read the news. Holt and his manager have stated it's because norwich wont EXTEND his contract by 1 year, because he is too old.Lambert will be without Culverhouse, Norwich City upwards and onwards :-)"My clubs got more to spend than your club", "My clubs bigger than your club" Come on guys thats playground stuff. Spending millions does not equal success, just a huge debt and years in the lower divisions paying it back for many good old fashioned tradional town/city teams. Giving in to one players demand to break a clubs wage cap is crazy, all the rest of the squad will then want theirs increased and you end up doubling the wage bill for the same players. Heres a simple solution to cutting every clubs wage bill, go back to 3 subs on the bench, that way thats 4 of the 7 players on the bench that every club can let go, why pay players just to sit on their backsides for 90 minutes. We all pay for these wages through our SKY Sports package and stupid price of a match ticket. No loyalty in football any more, its all about
This years fixture list is starting to look like this...
Manchester United Mercenary 11 vs Aston Villa Mercenary 11
Everton Mercenary 11 vs Southampton Mercenary 11
Fulham Mercenary 11 vs QPR Mercenary 11
Norwich City Mercenary 11 vs WBA Mercenary 11

Raheem Sterling to Norwich on-loan for the season with Ryan Bertrand coming in on loan as well. Permanent signings will be: Redmond, Davies, Snodgrass, Rhodes, Clyne, Lansbury.(15)(30)Your having a laugh none of these will joinLook mate, Leeds fan here.. I really do believe Snoddy will go, just not this summer for a fee less than 6-7m. Norwich should wait until winter you will get him for half that, I reckon he will follow Lambert too.Bertrand will not leave on loan and of he does it'll be to Reading.Why would Rodgers let Raheem Sterling who is one our best youngsters go out on loan when he has the opportunity to work and improve him.Snodgrass is slow - would not want him to join us. If we spend most of our money on Davis and Redmond I would be happy.

Stuart Beavon 200k from Wycombe Wanderers
Jacob Butterfield to newcastle on a free 600k compensation for Barnsley
Chris Dagnall free to Wycombe(8)(42)With that amount of players coming in
you wouldnt just have 2 going out.
As you wouldnt pay Heskeys and Vassells
wages just to put them on the benchWhat a load of rubbish.

I aint a Barnsley fan, but I know for a fact that they couldnt afford half of these.

Also you would be signing around 7-8 strikers if you did

Go back to playing footy managerI am aBarnsley fan but got to agree what a load of RubbishWe won't sign all these players I know but we could easily buy a fewSo your Playing a 1 1 8 formation next season then? Could be interestingHesky ... rather notForrester and saunders
.......hahI am a loyal Barnsley fan. This us rubbish. We still have very limited funds. I do trust hill to make the right signings.Daniel Bogdanovic free from Blackpool
Matt Hill free from Blackpool

Thank god for that just let us me know when you want them and i will give them a lift from BlackpoolWot crap iam a brentford fan sam saunders sighned 2trrs contract harryforrester we keppingAddison is playing for Blournemouth they won't sell himWhy will they sell Sam Saunders he has just signed a new contract and is one of our best players. And Harry Forrester has got one year left on his contract why get rid of him now?Addison has time left on his contract so won't be free.I heard derby are tryin to sell addison so wouldnt cost a lotYou won't get beavon. If he leaves he would go to a better team than barnsley

Who next for the mighty reds? Well i know this to be 100% right that williamson from sheff utd and madine from sheff wed are crossing south yorkshire to sign up for barnsley fc. I also know the reds are close to signing an ex barnsley player playing in the premiership. You heard it here first.(4)(23)Rubbish.Why would Madine go to Barnsley NOT EVEN
HALF SIZE OF MASSIVE OWLSWilliamson and madine arent good enough to wear a reds shirt !I can see Williamson coming for the higher league but we won't have a chance of attracting Madine. I think he'll go to a big champ club if Wendies sell himJust like the Cardiff chairman, he prefers wearing red!!!!!!!Madine going nowhere only transfers happening between us is butterfield coming to the MASSIVE and o'grady to youOn which planet are s.w a big club? Williamson will sign for barnsley, flicker in portugal holding talk with a couple of players. Etuhu signed. Madine is a possibility if the right fee is offered, and it wouldnt be a big fee for a striker only proven at league one level. Butterfield to sign a one year contract when he gets back. No contact been made from any club about himAnd you think Barnsley are bigger what crowds do you get again? You haven't git money to spend, your struggling to put cash up for o'grady and that's only 350,000 and madine is worth a lot more than that.Never said barnsley are bigger, what has attendence got to do with it. I do think its wrong to think that a club just comin from league 1 to say they're massive. O Grady is a rumour, madine is a rumour, the owl fan that thinks a butterfield for o grady swap is goin to happen is just an idiot. What i meant with madine before is, stranger things have happened in footballI font say were massive I say we are a big club though simple. You can't afford madine. How much you think he is worth? We got him for 800,000 or there abouts soe wouldn't go for less would he! If Dave Jones wants butterfield and we offer a decent contract to him why wouldn't he come? Mattock chose us over other established championship teams so that shows something doesn't it.We are certainly not bigger, one look at the average crowds puts that to bed, but we aren't delusional either, unlike are near neighbours!!!Why are we delusional? Optimistic yeah why shouldbt we be. Debt free for first time in over a decade and on the up. Feel good factor is back and we believe again! What's up wi that?Not very likely. both players do have a little ambition

Bailey going poss to Burnley... who next? looks like cloughs lost the dressing room...Ha ha ha, what and the want to come to you guys...
Are you having a laugh you can't fill your ground. Shackell is going no where Davies is being sold and Bailey has been told he has limited apperances in a Derby shirt so is being sold as well. See you next season Burnley. ha ha ha can't wait to play you. 27,000 every week ;-) COYR

Stoke have bid £5 million for Maiga.
However it will take around £7/8million.
to prise him from his current club.
This deal will run on until after the euros
and right up until the start of the season.

Pulis has drawn up a shortlist of 20 players
who stoke are looking at over the
window. Stoke are looking on bringing in
as many as 6 players if they can shift
some deadwood.(11)(7)6?! i REALLY hope this is trueI can see us signin maiga and gettin a good deal as he has alot of issues at sochaux n they want rid. can also see us spendin in excess of 20million agen. pulis wil twist coates's arm.Stoke were interested before and he is Pulis type striker who can play wide if need be.Doesn't matter which striker Stoke sign unless we buy a quality midfielder (and if Pulis plays him) he won't score the amount of goals we desperately need.

Derby have had a bid of £400,000 accepted for Wolves striker Sam Vokes. The Rams will start negotiations with the player next week. Derby are also currently in talks with both Michael Jacobs and Paul Dixon. My sources have lead me to believe that Jacobs will probably sign at the end of next week. With Dixon closer to signing for Bristol City.

Nigel Clough will be looking to spend £2m on a proven goal scorer. The Rmas boss will use the money he gets from the departures of Davies, Maguire and Bailey. Simon Cox is Clough's preferred man but if that deals a no go he has other targets that fit the bill.

On the departures side of things Davies is on the radar of Blackpool, the Seasiders look set to bid £1m during the up coming weeks. Sheffield Wednesday are also considering making a £1m bid for Maguire and Bailey.(12)(10)Davies and Bailey have had a 2.5 million bid from burnley accepted.

Maguire might stay.But Derby want
850,000 for him despite being seeing as not needed he is a young international
with alot of ability but Nigel thinks maguire
dosent want to stayOwls will not pay more than 350-400k for Maguire. Derby turned down 300k and 350k from Owls who might go up to 400k or more likely move onto next target. Doubt Owls want BaileyWe wont take less than 450k for him cus he cost thtCox and Vokes sound like they could be a good strike partnershipGood luck trying to get Oyston to spend 1million!

Jordan Rhodes will be a Norwich player by the end of the summer. He is set to join the canaries and link up with former team mate and good friend Anthony Pilkington afetr he has heard it is a fantastic club to develop and become a premier league player.(24)(24)Probably true hope he doesn't leave Hudds but would rather see him go to Norwich with Pilks than anywhere elseThis deal would make sense.the club could help him develope and he would get good 1st team experience...If he was to move, which he has said he's staying at Huddersfield, he would not join a side like Norwich. He would be going to a bigger club in the prem.
We've heard all the stupid rumours about JR and yours is another one. Also, where are Norwich going to get 8 million to get him?Lambert was a big fan dont know about hughton, plus can't guarantee pilks will be there for long let alone norwich who cant guarantee PL for next 3 years what if they go down! think rhodes will stay for 1 more year or til xmas if huddersfield not near play-offs then move on to bigger team... no disrespect! UTTWe have 20m+ to spendHe is not that tall not much pace, goals scored in a poor standard. 8million more like 2 half topsI think Jordan Rhodes can do betterWhy would Rhodes not come to us? We are not a big club but we are Premier League club so I,m sure he woul be attracted by the
Respect of joining us. We have great support nd fantastic facilities and, other than Chelsea, the only English team to beat BM in their own stadium. Those 12 year olds who are writing that we are a small club should reind a few years - we were a top 6 side for many years. Thownsend, watson, brucNo one is paying the 8M so called asking price for what is a 1st Div player with Potential !, but its still a gamble, don 't believe all the nonsense about 8M being quoted, he will be sold for around 3 + add on'sNorwich to get relegated nailed on pilks leaving for bigger club in prem and rhodes not going anywhere certainly not going to relegation side jog onLol thats old mate no one cares if you were a big club back in the early 90's truth is you staye in the premier league for 3 years was it went down and i don't think you came back up until 2005 which you went straight back down the same year then came up to the premier league again in 2011 No your not a big club the top 20 big clubs in the UK are
1 Man Utd
2 Liverpool
3 Arsenal
4 Chelsea
5 Spurs
6 Leeds

12 Sheff Wed
13 Sunderland
14 Wolves
15 Southampton
16 Leicester
17 West Ham
18 Birmingham
19 Portsmouth
20 Blackburn
These clubs are bigger than you and have more history than you, your not even ranked in the top 20 your ranked in the top 30 so stop saying your a big club your notOr you have this list which is based on fans
1. Manchester United
2. Liverpool
3. Arsenal
4. Leeds United
5. Chelsea
6. Newcastle United
7. Manchester City
8. Spurs
9. Everton
10. Aston Villa
11. Sheffield Wednesday
12. Wolves
13. Sunderland
14. Notts Forest
15. Derby County
16. Southampton
17. Birmingham
18. Ipswich Town
19. WBA
20. Norwich CityWell that's complete bull norwich are the 12th most supported team in the country so get your facts right. Also how can you class Leeds and forest as big teams? If Norwich played half the teams on that list they would wipe the floor with them. From a Chelsea fan.What has this got to do with transfer rumours. The big club debate is a waste of time as it depends who you support.
A player has to take into account length of contract, wages as well as if he will be able to get into the team before moving.Why would a history be important, football is about the here and now. If that's the case relatively new clubs like Wigan would have no decent players and they do.

Leeds thought to be close to signing derby midfielder james bailey who has been put up for sale by the rams after refusing to sign a new contract(9)(9)Steve davies is the player who rejected the contract mate so I guess this rumour is 100 percent wrong!

AFC Wimbledon have shown an interest in former Charlton defender Gary Doherty.

The 32-year-old centre-back is a free agent after being shown the door by the League One champions at the end of the season.

Source: Hounslow Chronicle(11)(4)Would be solid in defence, no doubt recommended by Jason euellJelly is more solid than dohertyIs he that badJelly is more solid than doherty
Harsh but true and funny.Yes he is that bad. The only thing I can say positive about him is he is pretty decent in the air. No pace and just makes error after error in key areas which usually lead to a goal. For your sake I hope you don't sign himHe was 32 a long time agoOh dear! Don't sign him Terry Brown!Arh! but the last two teams he played for won promotion! Even if he never played a lot he brings luck to the team that sign him.Wasted wagesArh! but the last two teams he played for won promotion! Even if he never played a lot he brings luck to the team that sign him.
When you say he played for us what you mean is that this season he was at home doing Irish dancing all by himself. I was closer to Charlton's 1st team than Doc was and I sit in row U!!

Andy Taylor mulling over offers from both Oldham & Tranmere(8)(2)He should go tranmere because he has been there beforeBetter than going oldham anywayHe has signed for OldhamHe has signed for Oldham hope this is true.No he has'nt signed for oldham we re-signed james wesolowski and dean bounzais and signed full back connor brown on a free after his release by sheff unitedAndy Taylor held talks with Oldham before the season even ended and was back at Latics last week but weather he signs or not i don't know, Rotherham also interested aswell.Oldham will announce the signing of andy taylor this week along with another BIG NAME signing to regain the fans faith. source - my twin works for the club.Big name signing :- Vassell ?????
Howard ?????"along with another BIG NAME"

Andy Taylor is not a BIG NAMEHave to laugh at BIG NAMES.

We don't have the budget to get players like Howard as he was on at least 10K at leicester.

Dickov won't say anything until a deal is done. Don't understand how people think they know whats happening at the club. Its a joke and utter rubbish.Andrei Kanchelskis has a big name, Is it him? lol

Reading ins and outs
Dame N'Doye 6M
Pogrebnyak Free
Mariappa 4M
Bridcutt 2M
Matt Philipps 4M
Manset 800K Shenghai
Church 2M Cardiff
Kanu 2M Watford or Middelsbourgh
D'ath loan Charlton(9)(21)How would Watford ever afford 2m for Kanu. Not that he's worth it anyway.Your sale prices have one thing in common - they are circa 5x reality - do you seriously think that Robson Kanu is worth 2m - i mean seriously - if anyone offers you 500k - wrap him up in cotton wool and drive hime slowly and carefully to the other club - same goes for that goal machine ChurchOkay fair enough this guys sales are a bit inflated but rash comments on the players. I rate Kanu, hes definitely worth holding on to until he develops a bit moreRobson-Kanu is probably worth 1m and I cant see us landing Pogrebynak. The others are possible though.How would watford get 2m from 4m from mariappa and chalme is a free if he's that right backHave you ever saw him play.he is worth the money.As above, watch him play then judge, he is still on the up and improving, I for one would like to see him at the club getting the odd game this season.I have watched him play and he's nothing special. Sure, some stupid teams will pay rip off prices for overrated players but Watford cannot afford that. We wouldn't spend 2m on a proven player as we can't afford it, yet alone spend it on someone who could very well be a flop for 500k yet alone 2m.

If we ever got 4m for Mariappa, it would go straight to paying off our debts or improvements.I'm a Cardiff City fan and despite what you think of Church we wouldn't pay 2mil for himN'doye to reading you have to be kidding me newcastle are sniffing around and have expressed interest for him to be a straight replacemnt for ba if he leaves. Copehagen are a much better team than reading so he's going nowhereThe last time watford payed over a million was for Nathan Elington, in 2007, and he was rubbish. We bought jobi mcanuff for 1. something mill that summer, so you think that we are magically going to pay 2mil for a rubbish strikerKeep kanu he is a quality player

yeovil close to signing joe mckee on a season long loan from burnley.(5)(9)I believe Burnley have not offered him a new deal so he is on a free transferWhy would we want to loan him, he is a free agent! released fro Burnley in April....Joe Mckee was released by Burnley at the end of last seasonJoe's been released from burnley so it will not be on loan

After losing out on Joe Mattock and Paul Dixon, Derby turn their attentions to Liverpool's Jack Robinson to fill the left-back position.(5)(7)We havent lost out on Dixon.We need to buy a left back not on loan and Robinson wouldnt leave liverpoolIf derby r going to get him permanently they will have to pay a big fee because he will become the future England fullback in a few years time and Liverpool would not want to sell him. But getting him on loan might be a possibility and has been talked about before.Loans aren't the way the Derby management want the club to go. The policy is to buy low and sell high, and so it is unlikely that a loan will be used in anything other than a last resort

ytfc on the brink of signing exciting young coventry midfielder Gaël Bigirimana for 50k plus 50 percent of next sale.(3)(20)When Newcastle are linked to bidding between 500k and 1mil for him? Load of crap.Ytfc newcastle or cov not really a hard decision + he just signed a new 4 year dealNewcastle have bid 750k, so this is a load of crapThat one he's worth at least a million plus he's going newcastleNever he is worth alot more and wouldnt go to yeovil!!!Yeovil Town sorry you are a dreamer a player with a 4 year contract a player that Premier League Clubs are looking at: why on earth would he move to your tiny club? 50k try at least 1,000,000.Wait......... i swear Coventry are in the same league as Yeovil?? and you are calling us tin potYes But Coventry is a huge Club in English history While I only heard of Yeovil TodayBigirimana would never join yeovilE maybe Eastwood though cause hes not that goodNot tin pot just tiny with no history a tiny ground. We may be a mess financially but eventually it will be sorted one way or another. A player won't choice you over Coventry that's like saying Wigan are as big as Man Utd because there in the same league.

in a interview di canio said that swindon are intrested in andy williams ( who declined an offer from yeovil) and said that he hopes one day that andy williams will be a swindon player. Basically saying williams will sign on the 1st of july(12)(7)Williams?? I thought you lot were going for promotion?He scored 17 goals last season how is he not good ?!?!On behalf of yeovil fans he is very greedy and if he wasnt so greedy we could have had a lot more goals as a team and probably would have done better in the leagueWilliams scored goals in a weak
Team so will be a good signingI watched Andy Williams week in week out for the last 2 years and firstly I'd like to say that if it wasn't for his goals we would have got relegated. They literally kept us up! He had a fantastic season for us. Although, that said, he does need around 6-10 clear chances for everyone 1 he puts away. I'm not sorry to see him leave because it's his living and he wants to better himself. You can't argue with that. I don't think he will ever perform the same again though. He was a 1 season wonder in my opinion.

Mark Hughes is looking at the possibility of signing Manuel Fernandes as he looks to bulk up his midfield ahead of the following season. Fernandes is currently a free agent after Besiktas failed to pay his wages and his contract was mutually terminated.
Sunderland's Martin O'Neil is also thought to be interested in the midfielder but is also keen on Aston Villa Forward Gabriel Agbonlahor who played under O'Neil when he was in the Villa hot seat. Agbonlahor is a life long Villa fan so if a formal approach is made it will be interesting to see whether he will be tempted to join up with his former manager or remain at his childhood club.(10)(7)I'd say stay at Villa.
Soon MON will leave & Sunderland will be left with players wanting to leave.

MK Dons are in talks with Shrewsbury Town left back Matt Richards.(8)(9)Not a chance of Richards joining franchise fc. He swept the boards at our player of season awards, loves the area & has another year to run on his contract. Besides, he's been playing in midfield for the last few years.He's not a left backLeft back? Richards? Hmmm, I know this is a rumour website but even this rumour is quite shockingly bad!Midfielder or left back, it doesn't matter as it's not a position we're looking to fill.He was a Left Back originally but is just as strong in midfield now. He has played in midfield since joining us except against Oxford where he played LB and scored a last minute 35/40 yarder!

Judging by his twitter I would say he is unlikely to make a move at the moment, but i could be wrong. We could do with keeping him to be honest, he is by far our strongest and most experienced playerHes still under contract with shrewsbury and pretty sure he wouldn't go to tinpot clubWe are not looking for LB we have Lewington and Chicksen

Everton about to bid for Jay Rod according to Daily Mirror. Although they will be offering less it is likely Jay would prefer to stay in the North West. Up to BFC they accept less to keep Jay happy or reject and force hm down south? Interesting one...and to all you saints fans....we told you not to count your chickens just yet!(12)(26)I think you will find it states Everton have to sell before they bid anything! If he wants to hang around and wait for that to happen then thats upto him isnt it! Not exactly the end of the world for Saints as they can move onto their next target. Do you really think Burnley would want to accept less for him anyway?Don't think there is any substance to this story. Everton have to sell before they can buy. And Piennar is their priority signing.Firstly,Why would Burnley accept a lower price
For their star player! They wouldn't!
Secondly if JRod is not happy moving to Southampton Nigel Adkins wouldn't sign him!
No point having players that aren't happy!
Thirdly if He doesn't come saints, then it will be his loss! But He will !!
The jealous people on this site who keep knocking saints fans. Why don't you just worry about your own club. Unless your that worried about little ole Southampton Fc.I think you will find Burnley have already accepted the fee from Saints, so hardly likely they will say, "oh, yes, we will accept less from Everton".

You can't afford him, so give it up.We havent counted our chickens, if he doesn't sin then we will move on to some else end offWhy are people so worried about us saints fans talking about who or what players we are intrested in ?if jay rod says no to us i wont be losing any sleep as most saints fans are 50-50 about him anyway if he signs im sure he will be a big successNo chanceEverton need to sell before they buy saints deal all but done Everton more likely to get relegated next season so he's 90 % certain to choose southampton.Done deal for saints not worth 7 million thoughEven if Southampton & Burnley agree the fee does not mean they can force him to sisn, so if he plays hardball because he wants to stay in the north, then its just possible they will have to sell for less.'Everton more likely to get relegated next season', dream on...A well established Premier League side consistently finishing in the top of the league. I think someone's deluded!Its irrelevant now anyway as he has agreed to sign with SaintsHaha whoever that is saying everton more likely to be relegated clearly hasnt got a clue

Nearer 5M rising to 7M for goals/appearancesHis choice who he wants to play for but saints are on the up and i hear there could be 3-4 more signings so mid table next season will be a great finishEverton can only bid when they sell someone! They have declared their interest in hope that it makes Jay think a bit. They are not in a position to bid anything yet.

Brian McDermott will be presented with his Reading FC transfer budget next week, it is thought to be in the region of 15 million. I would imagine this money to be spent on:

Pavel Pogrebnyak - Free Agent (Anton being Russian makes me feel more confident regarding this rumour - also Nick Hammond LOVES a bargain)
Adrian Mariappa - Watford (Thought to be completed when he returns from International Duty)
Liam Bridcutt - Brighton (We will beat Aston Villa to his signature for 2 million)
Matthieu Chalme - Bordeux (We need a RB so this rumour looks strong)

Brian McDermott will not buy any players until Monday (at the earliest), as that's when Anton will let him know how much he can spend. This is a big window for Reading, but Nick Hammond has already said he will not spend like QPR and Manchester City, but like Norwich and Swansea who both spent around 10-13 million in their first season in the top flight.(14)(20)You're get none of them just a small clubChalme would be a great signing, really a class player, however is he used to playing for clubs battling for Europe spots!? I hope he comes!Is it just me who thinks its impressive that you know the budget and buys of Reading before the owner has told the manager what he can spend? ;-)How big is readings fan base says it all to meYou will need to spend more to get Bridcutt! Hope you learn from QPR who tried to save money and ended up spending a fortune to avoid the drop (just!). Reading should do well this season and finish about halfway.Agreed. Complete BSBridport will not go to reading factCan i ask why you are postin false statments about adrian mariappa deal being done. The watford observer have just printed in the paper that watford rejected 2million + add ons and do not no if reading will put in a second improved bid!Why ever would pavel sign for you when he can get first team football at fulham a much bigger, LONDON, which can prove important club who are not going to get relegated^^^^ I dont think you have to be a big club to get a watford player, a brighton player, an ex fulham or an average french teams player ;)People will be shocked about reading's fan base ... They will easily sell out there 38000 allocation when completedOur small club is in the prem, brill isnt itY cant we get those players? we r probably most under-rated team in england because we arent "a big team from a city". zingarevichs takeover has already attracted players so y cant we get the likes of Pogrebnyak?Don't think QPR tried to do it on the cheap the club was involved in a takeover and the result was a real lack of investment by the former owners. If i remember rightly they were linked with a load of players and were rumoured to have agreed terms with Danny Graham only for all moves to be vetoed. I rekon reading will struggle if they don't get things done quickly because their 1st choice target maybe a bigger clubs 2nd choice. I think this is where norwich and swansea done very well in comparision to QPRI really love the 'your just a small club with no fans comment' .. When was football won by the fans? Two promotions and four play off appearances in recent years, ever increasingly successfully academy and large investment off the pitch. So this big club we must become before we actually get acknowledged can't be far away.. But then I guess we'll have brought the success right?Unless you are Man City, Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea followed by Liverpool and Newcastle every club is a small club! Reading is no different to any other club, all are trying their best to improve, some are improving faster than others. Reading will continue to over perform and will make some decent signings but they'll never be a big club although they will hold their own and compete.I find it amusing how people are ripping Reading for being a small club. At least we are well run and are not in debt.The Mariappa deal was done weeks ago. The hold up is due to him being away on international duty. Watford are releasing stories saying they have rejected the bids to appease their fans. This has been agreed with Reading."zingarevichs takeover has already attracted players so y cant we get the likes of Pogrebnyak?"...... Who have you attracted then? You have only signed Gareth McCleary. Reading are going to find it hard to sign big names.I don't want Bridcutt. He was rubbish from what I saw of him. Not good enough for our so called 'small club'. I'd rather sign Keith Andrews who is an attacking midfielderI love the fact that reading is disregarded by many>we have proven our team and fghting spirit.Look at the stats,the best in any division anywhere. There just might be a surorise as to who sighns for us if not wee will do what we have as a proper TEAM no prima donnas/Major problem with this is your figures. at end of last summers transfer window Swansea had spent 9m approx, Norwich 6.8m approx and QPR 10.1m approx so when you say swansea and norwich spent 10-13m thats incorrect. then you also go on to hint at QPR spending vast amounts unwisely when they only spent 1.1m more than swansea. And lets not forget QPR stayed up at the end of it all so whatever they spend was worth it.Good luck to Reading - good club with true supporters. Would love to see one of the so called 'big club' go down. From a Norwich fanI am a Brighton fan and how can you call reading a small club there have reached the premier league and not for the first time I would love brighton to reach the premier league and see how many people call us a small club and then we could just turn around and say what league are we in we ain't that small are we good luck to reading this season I think you will finish mid table and we will join you there next seasonI'm interested - 'The Mariappa deal was done weeks ago. The hold up is due to him being away on international duty. Watford are releasing stories saying they have rejected the bids to appease their fans.' How do you know this?The reason weve only got mccleary is because the transfer window isn't even open yet and brian hasnt been given his transfer funds. Mccleary was a free transfer"Is it just me who thinks its impressive that you know the budget and buys of Reading before the owner has told the manager what he can spend? ;-)"

Not really, any ITK Reading fan knows it will be c. 15mSeriously! Who cares if Reading are a small club! I'm a Norwich fan, and I think it's brilliant that we are a small club, it makes it feel so much better. In comparison, to a team like Manchester United who win title after title, and it isn't really an achievement, while for teams like Norwich, Swansea, Wigan and Reading it will be.Zingarevichs takeover has caused following:
Jason Roberts to drop a division
Brian McDermott to stay at Reading
Jimmy Kebe to sign a new contract against all the odds...We already know Mapps is going...
Anyone who wins our player of the season award always leaves straight after...
Shame Loach didn't win it...That Norwich fan knows what he's on about.

Carragher wouldn't leave thoughJamie Carragher is Liverpool through and through mate. He will finish his career with the redsCarragher wont go but the likes of agger will go to real and liverpool will have to stay with the likes of cotes carra and skrtel, we may bring in aly scissokho, the only player i want is affeley or dempsey but affelay seems like he's staying and we need a striker like lawandolski, doumbia or dzeko,
would like a team like this
johnson coates skrtel enrique
lucas gerrard
downing dempsey adam johnson
suarezJamie Carragher? No bloody thank you!Cara at the Baggies?? never gona happen. already stated he wnts 2 stay at pool and coach.Carragher might be good enough for has beens liverpool, but he would n,t get a game for west broms academy side.

Derby have rejected a second bid for a un-named championship side, thought to be Burnley, for Jason Shackell.

The Rams have also said talks are on going with Sheffield Wednesday for Forward Chris Maguire.(8)(3)Ha ha?There was never a first bid you are
deluded.This bullst was in the Dailystar
where they said you are lining up a 1 million bid.I never laughed so much we payed 1.1 million for him from barnsley
last summer.Why would we loose 100k on
our most important player/captian.Hes valued at 3.5 million + and whether offered 7 million.We dont need to sell and want to sell.You have already bought Steve davies and James BaileyWe did not actually pay 1.1 million for him we paid 750,000.Burnley aint bought no one yet .....I'm a derby fan and and there have been 2 bids. it was in the official derby telegraph. we will sell at the asking price but I think that is 3 million.To the guy above, it says we have knocked back a second bid all over the internet so maybe get your own sources before commenting.SSN and thisisderbyshire states we've rejected 2 bids. Mate you need to chill, im a Derby fan and Shackells off. You're the deluded oneAlso a Ram, Shackell is deffo going Derby will accept Burnleys 3rd offer which has been placed!!

southampton looking at signing rob green according to daily star(8)(24)Yeah this has been in a few papers, but I cant see it myself. Davis is the No 1 keeper and I would have thought it would be best to buy a young keeper...i.e Butland.Why would we want Rob Green when we have Kelvin Davis!? Kevlin Davis is very experienced and has a couple of good years in him still. Therefore, we need someone young, for the future. e.g: Butland.They probs want three keepers :L as we only have oneHope So .Good keeper if we get him can't see us paying them wages tho all speclation atm we shall see i guess.Get bultand more potential and a better replacement for davisOne month ago no one had heard of Butland, sounds a good keeper, His young and English, I think it would be better going for him as a back up to Davies even pushing for the number one spot. I understand that there are a few teams looking at him and that he wants first team football.

Ipswich Town
Young French midfielder close to joining Ipswich Town

By Dave Gooderham

PAUL Jewell is closing in on his second signing of the summer thanks to departing defender Ibrahima Sonko.

Comments Email Print Got a story?
Young French-Guinean midfielder Cheick Kourouma is set to follow in the footsteps of fellow youngster Elliott Hewitt and sign for the Blues, subject to a medical.

Kourouma, 19, currently with Genoa Under-20s, impressed Jewell during a trial at the end of the season and is set to put pen to paper in the next week or two.

The deal was struck up thanks in part to Sonko who recommended a number of African players to the Ipswich manager before he was told he would not be offered a new deal.

Kourouma, described as a powerful box-to-box midfielder, was the first to visit Suffolk for a trial but not the last with another of Sonko's tip-offs expected to try and impress the Blues boss over the summer.

A source close to the defender said: "Sonks loved Ipswich and he was sad to leave. Before he was told the news, he wanted to offer Chiek to Paul Jewell as he thought he could be a good player for Ipswich."

Kourouma was on the books of the Sochauex academy in France before moving to Italy, but he is being released by the cash-strapped Serie A club allowing him to join Ipswich for a nominal fee.

While his inexperience might mean he will initially have to be content with a place on the fringes of Jewell's first team, the Ipswich manager saw enough during the short trial to offer him a deal.

He continues Jewell's pledge to sign "young and hungry" players following the acquisition of Hewitt on the day of his 18th birthday last month.

While most fans will welcome another promising youngster signing for Town, they will now be hoping Jewell adds some more steel to the spine of his team.

A first-choice goalkeeper, two centre-backs, at least one midfielder and another striker all remain priorities but the Town boss this week warned fans to remain patient.

The manager said: "Supporters always want to see new faces arriving and I'm as impatient as anyone, more so, in trying to bring players here.

"Signing players is a complicated business. Yes, in an ideal world I'd like to have all our players in place by the time we return to pre-season training in July but we don't live in an ideal world."

One man who seems unlikely to be coming is QPR keeper Paddy Kenny who is close to leaving the Premier League club.

The 34-year-old tweeted that he was "excited to get his future sorted" before quickly deleting the message from the social media website.

While we understand Jewell considered making the veteran stopper an offer, he has moved on to other targets.

Leeds United remains favourites to secure Kenny's signature.

Charlton may make a shock move to try and sign spurs out of contract players stiker louis saha and defender ryan nelsen. They are also considering giving a contract to reading midfielder brian howard. (reliable sources)(4)(31)Theres more chance of saha buying charlton than other way round!Here we go again- the next instalment of the big charlton signing - get real mate none of these players are coming to you.^ I like that comment!Not a cafc fan so leave itNo big names - just sensible players without the egos please.Whoever wrote this isn't a Charlton fan. If he was he would know that Powell is buying young and hungry players to build a team for the long term.Howard is rubbish, you'll go back down if you signed him"Howard is rubbish, you'll go back down if you signed him" We're not so it dont matter does it!

Southampton looking at Chris Baird who is considering his future at Fulham.(10)(14)No thanks. Can do better.No chance....No No NoWow! Is it really necessary to get so wound up about such a simple matter? A reaction like this will stop fans posting info when we really need the 'snippets' pouring in at this stage.No nooooooooooooooooooooooo no
richardson much better than bairdChris Baird was a great player when we had him before and far better thar Fraser, good signingAs a saints fan, ill admit richardson is a liability, and baird has his days! Certainly could do mpre of a job than richardson or butterfield defensively, however both of them have a hell of a cross when they want one!I hope he stays, but will only get limited chances - nice lad, reasonable player.You guys do know that Richardson has already stated that he will leave the club this summer and that 'I wish all the best to the player who will be brought in this summer' (was on his twitter account)Frazer Richardson does not have twitter, that account was fake, his name wasn't even spelt right on it FFS.

Brescia midfielder Adam vass is a shock target for stoke city after he left stoke in 2007 after refusing to sign a new contract(5)(12)Seems unlikely, Stoke already have quite a few average central midfielders (Whelan, Whitehead, Delap) I'd like to think that Stoke will be looking to get someone with a little bit more quality.No he isn't

Derby county to complete the
signing of free transfers paul dixon
and Niall Mcginn on monday(8)(13)He has agreed to join Bristol city! Fact pre contract agreement done and dusted, he never even talked to derbyI thought Dixon was going to Bristol city? :)Prove it thats hes going to bristol because if you go on his twitter he is still
on holiday since he left Dundee united.So
no club can have talked him.He will choose Derby over Bristol not because of
this us being bigger club Nonsense.But
final Posistions last year and the club with the bigger future and better chance of premier league.There were only people
saying he was going to you because our
attention to joe mattock who didnt go
on holiday but he has now signed for
Sheffield Wednesday.So unless we have
another target which i doubt we will be
doing all we can to get him as we need a
Left back desperately.It all depends on
much you want nothing about manager being scottish.

kelvin etuhu today followed in the footsteps of stephen henderson,joel ward and jason pearce to leave portsmouth and go to another club, this club is the barnsley.(22)(3)Oh no, not 'the Barnsley'!!Better than a club going out of buisness pay up pompey pay up pompeyYes mate the barnsley you should be on your knees when mentioning the super reds and paying homageFunny when it's says in are local paper he signed a new dealDeffo signed on at barnsleyHe has a massive desire to stay a pompey since apps gave him a chance after his jail stint and is thus gratefull so has dedicated himself to our pompey cause :)He has never played for rochdale, is hill feeling okay?As a Pompey fan I have to say that Etuhu never impressed me. He might have done OK in Div 1 with us but personally, do not think he is up to the Championship, still good luck to him at Barnsley.Burst last guys bubble he played On loan at rochdale under non other than keith hill!In fact you are wrong etuhu did play for rochdale four times during a brief loan spell not sure what season but lets hope hills learnt from his mistakes and adds some proven championship quality players he should be looking at trying to tempt stock coppinger and hayter from donny proven to cut it at championship more than good enough to add to our squad with some of the drab hills fetched in at least they have experience of this league and know how to dog it out in a relegation battle because i cant see any more than a relegation battle unless he pulls a few good signingsHe signed for Barnsley on Friday, please stay in touch with what's going on people, it's getting boring this

Derby county are to sign ex on loan
forward Alberto Bueno.He has a
release clause of 350,000.Hope he
might adapt better to the English
winters(10)(7)Wish it was true but this is a loa of rubbish, more like a realse clause of 3.5 million and anyway in his contract theres a clause to say real madrid have 1st refusal if he is up for transfer FACT!!But hes 24 now.I doubt hes suddenly going to become better than Higuian,Benzema and Ronaldo.
He said he liked his time here and wouldnt mind moving here forever as he stated on twitter and Rams player.

Football is football. Jason pearce,joel ward,stephen henderson,kelvin etuhu and soon: liam lawrence,dave kitson,greg halford,nwkwo kanu,marko futacs,and erik huseklepp leave the portsmouth. But ben haim will continue to play for portsmouth, want to bet? , balram chainrai will buy portsmouth and will hire again: david james,papa bouba diop, hermann hreidarsson,ricardo rocha,matt ritchie and danny webber,thus the first team squad portsmouth in season 2012/13 will be:

26-ben haim
8-bouba diop
25-thompson(2)(45)Oh how we all love the daily dose of skate humour....Even the over fans are starting to realise what a joke of club this isNo chanceDeluded.Like ritchies gonna go to them when championship teams want himI'll have some of that, you aren't going to sign any of the players mentioned. It will be like taking candy from a baby. Come on put your money where your mouth isNot a chance!If youre like youre club youve got no money pay up pompey pay up pompey thanks for etuhu anyway...........Ben haims wages will run you into the ground alone. I'll be sure to pay a visit to the Tesco where Fratton Park used to be, wearing my premier league Saints shirt.You won't be signing anyone, you will start the season still in administration and be subject to a transfer embargo.
You might get a couple of players that no other club wants who will be out contract and without a club.... welcome to reality skates.Does anyone listen to appleton he wants YOUNG FRESH blood not 80 year old men join all of us normal pompey fans mate never gonna happen PUPWhy would we want our old team? would rather a hungry youthfull squad than the people we sold/released a few seasons ago on sky high wagesPremier league shirt? ok for one season you are rightPortsmouth will be wearing league 2 shirts next season by the looks of itI'm a pompey fan and even i agree you are talking complete bcksGot to admit, really far fetched! Pompey i believe will come out of administration via a CVA with either Chanrai of the PST, there will be no further points deduction. Players listed will not be signed by Pompey, look out for young local players and players who have L1/2 experience. PUP

Stoke to sign bellamy. Defoe. Brayford. O hara. Jarvis. Owen.(8)(59)Bellamy will either stay or go to cardiff
Defoe and owen might join
Brayford will definately not be joining
O hara Possible but seems more likely
west bromThose players like to play football, so Stoke have no chanceImpossible ........ they're all too small and they play football !!Defoe looking fairly likely to happen and Pulis spoke about Owen being an option yesterday. Jones will leave before anything happensDon't think Stoke will be spending about 30m this year which is what it will take to land that lot and that's not including signing-on fees.

BobbybuffonHaha stoke getting defoe ..wot a load of rubbish..This is nothing that us stoke fans have not heard before, you dont realise that we might be getting these new players to change stoke and our ways of playingDefoe is a definite possibility as what ever team one of the pair have joined (crouch and defoe) the other has soon followed matt javis looks like a good addition but also kightly as well could improve the squad greatly we need to start looking for players that play football or to just start as that is the next point of improvement and we are starting to realise and try to play football and when we do short spells granted we look a good side when we do play football the main concern of me is the rumours about huth leaving who could we get/afford to replace him if he leaves

yeovil town are expecting to sign stewart beavon from wycombe for an estimated 45k within the next week making him one of the most expensive signings since pablo bastianini. {E(4)(24)Wycombe want 500k for him, so not sure 45k wuold get him!But pablo pastini was 250,000 45k is really anywhere near thatGet real Yeovil, 45k for Stewart Beavon we turned down a bid of 350k from Bournemouth not long ago...Ha dont tell my club to get real, tell it to this lunatic who made up this rumour!Bastianini cost nowhere near 250,000 in terms of a transfer fee. That figure includes signing on fee, wages, etc.It's on wiki the price we paid for Pablo kind of a waste of money considering he left for nothingI can promice you this. i know people say they work for clubs etc.. but hand on heart, i really was working for yeovil town when pablo bastianini was at yeovil, and he really was 250k. he didnt have an signing on fees as we sorted him out with a house in yeovil. he was rubbish lolThe fact that it's on wiki doesn't mean it's true. The Yeovil chairman stated after Bastianini left, that the signing had cost the club in the region of 250,000. That figure included the money we had to spend to pay up his contract. Agree with you though, however much he cost, it was money wasted. {Ed001's Note - he was a free transfer, no money went to his previous club.}But even so we payed 50k for chris cohen back in the dayNo chance, mainly as its clearly a lie based on figures and club, but also Beavon will only leave for a big club and would rather not have to move home


09 Jun 2012 01:13:04
Emile Heskey interests Barnsley but only if they can get wages down(11)(28)Don't think so, can't afford him.We could if all those who criticise the club but never attend bought season tickets not just tickets for play off and wembleyDont know where got that from hes going back to leicester city.I agree, too many fair weather waste of time fans that criticise the team after each of the two games they attend all season!Hes going on loan to rochdale before going to barnsley, only reason hill is intereseted in himIm a barnsley fan and but i dont go to all matches, perhaps if ticket prices were realistic with the quality of football i would, jumpin from 22 to 30 and makin 75% of games cat a was daft

My brother in law is best friends with Adam Johnson.
I live in Hartlepool and my brother in law recently brought Adam round my mams as she does teeth whitening and she done his. He told me that Roberto Di Matteo has already spoken to him regarding a transfer if he gets the job at Chelsea and he will sign for Chelsea in a flash as he is sick of being a part time player at City and he has already been told if an offer comes in over £10 million he can talk to them. This is 100% true and i have NEVER posted on here before butthis came from the horses mouth.(20)(39)Does that horse now have whiter teeth too? {Ed025's Note - lol..Wtf this got to do with hartlepool unitedSo he's not happy being a part-time player at Man City but he's so excited about being a part-time player at Chelsea that he gabs about it to the lass who whitens his teeth?Can she book me in for next week?Some mate you are...squealer!Surely he's been tapped up then? Is this not illigal?It only says he live in Hartlepool no mention of United!As credible as this rumour is, there is one hitch. Adam Johnson is on holiday in Las Vegas. That horse is a white-tooth liar.So if you know johnson on holiday in vegas has he not told you who or where he will be next season as it seems you know him wellI just follow him on Twitter. It's not difficult.

QPR have have met the release clause for Montpellier star Olivier Giroud. It is believed to be in the region of £12.8 million.(10)(37)Yeah right, like one of the most sought after strikers in Europe would leave Champions league football to go to a relegation scrap with QPR. Dream OnQPR won't be in a relagation scrap next year, but I agree, extremely unlikely he would leave Montpellier for QPRQpr should look at ones that they have a better chance at signingIt doesnt say he has signed, just that QPR have placed a bid. it doesnt say he has agreed terms just that QPR have bid !Bid shows ambition. No hope will they sign him but making the bid might turn a few heads in QPR's direction. Statement of intent.Yes evidence of Hughes' famous "ambition" - that's why he's with a relegation candidate club.QPR wont be a relegation candidate nex season though will they? look at what Hughes did at Blackburn, he turned them into a midtable team with very little money and QPR have loads so he should be looking to push even higher up the table in the next 2-4 seasons.Once again, QPR won't be in a relegation scrap next year, will be much more solid and consistant.

J Rod has started negotiations with Southampton. Source - BBC(27)(6)Please, for the love of God, stop calling him "Jay Rod". It doesn't make you sound like you're on personal terms with the man. It doesn't make you sound edgy. It doesn't make you sound "in-the-know". It makes you sound like like an utter knb. (Ed, I know you can't publish this, but it's really beginning to pi55 me off. Sorry)Mate he's just writing j rod where it is more easier to say than his whole name you dont have to get all mad about itTake a chill pill FFS who r u his mum?J Rod's the man!Come on J Rod, Sign!Bloody hell mate bit silly to get wound up about something like that! Everyone writes his name like that, its just one of those things...People dont do it to give the impression they know him or anything, its just a shorter way of typing his name.Everton have made a late bid for rodriguezEverton have not made a late bid, they have declared interest but need to sell before they can put a bid in.Not wanting to be picky (okay, I am), but 1. I didn't call him Jay Rod I called him J Rod and 2. I did it coz I don't know how to spell RodriguezMate you need to calm down everyone calls him j rod its easier than his full nameKD
J RodEverton need to sell before they buy. So I highly doubt that rumour is true.Exactly they cant afford a player like him and the deal is pretty much done, he will probs join us as we have the ambition to be bigger than EvertonI realise we don't know what goes on behind the scenes but I wish he'd hurry up and sign,it's getting to the stage where it looks as though he's waiting to see what other options he's got.Stop pissing about J Rod and join a great club.No bid yet just enquired everton must sell to buy and i would think signing pienar is more of a priorityIf J Rod hasn't signed by Monday night then.......I hope that isnt the saints team played:L steve cant start; and you'd chose deano over cork? Deano seems to have pressure problems, i.e. the reading game last year! and id have billy over "j rod" ;)Looking at the bigger picture Rodriguez holding out for other clubs to sniff aound hardly makes me think he is that bothered and will unsettle other players who are. Happy for him to go elsewhere and we get someone who sees us a first choice.Think Rodriguez would be a great player to sign but I really think that we need to sign some more top flight experienced footballers. Don't you think? Possibly yakubu or someone?

Peterborough are looking at loaning Wolves Young Starlet
Zeli Ismail, the young lad is very highly rated for the future with the likes of Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool looking at him for a permanent basis, if he moves to a lower club on loan it will help him experience first team action and Peterborough can give that to him.(3)(20)1 phrase LOL .. you couldn't afford his laces he turned down Chelsea n man cityNo loans for Posh this summer!No chance. if jarvis is sold he'll be playing 4 wolves.. they knw how good he is.. dnt need 2 loan him out. only got a year left on his contract. so why would they loan him out?Heard the same about his team mate the striker Mcalinden looks like the Wolves players are all off to Peterbourgh lol not!Forde is above Ismail in the pecking order at th moment so it may be trueAs i understand it, past loans have been ineffective and so the decision not to use that market has been taken by the club except on an emergency basis.

Tottenham are in talks with Barcelona for Thiago Alcantara.(11)(27)This is utter nonsense. Alcantara is seen as one of the brightest prospects ever to come out of the Camp Nou. Anyone clicking the "Believable" clearly knows nothing about football. {Ed007's Note - Anyone using the term 'the Camp Nou' really shouldn't be taken seriously. Stick to the X-Box and virtual El Clasico matches at the The Estadio Santiago Bernabeau.}Lmfao That's funny Ed007. Anyone that calls the Nou Camp anything else is just trying to sound like some idiot pundit from TV. I suppose Hazard is pronounced Haazzzaarrr in you litle world......

Like the Ed says, stick to the xbox and pretending you are doing interviews as a manager when you are in the shower. Plank!^^^ You do both realise that the actual official name of the "Nou Camp" is the Camp Nou? It means new stadium and the only reason its known at all as the Nou Camp is because of english speakers who put the Nou before the Camp? So don't run your mouth before you know what you're talkin about.

Ex Chesterfield player Dean Morgan is close to completing a move to fellow league two team Aldershot. He had a successful loan spell there at the end of the 2009/10 season.(2)(4)Aldershot are welcome to Dean Morgan he has zero work rate and a poor attitude.Hope he staysQuality player on his day but quite often lazy and injured.Kevin phillips spotted going into b2net the other day.Kevin Philips was supposedly spotted there before last season as well. LolKevin Phillips was at b2 net last season but only to keep during pre season, he was training with the squad. (like Beckham did with arsenal when he first moved to America) Phillips was never goin to join chesterfield, I wish he had. But I think Kevin Phillips playing for chesterfield is a no go. And it's midfielders and defenders the mighty spierites need.Phillips took up his final year option at Blackpool then will retire. Never was joining CFC last year or thisPablo Mills on way to chesterfield after being Let go from crawley

Arsene wenger eyeing up anthony pilkington as replacement to departing RVP, norwich holding out for 5 million.(6)(39)Total rubbish
Pilkington is not going anywhere this Season if he shows same form next season he will be worth a lot more than 5MPilks is a wingerWe would not sell pilks for less than ten millionWhat a load of rubbish!

Firstly, Pilks is a winger.

Secondly, and probably more importantly, as much as I rate Pilks and think he'll be a big player for NCFC next season, he's not in RVP's class.He is nowhere near Arsenal class and RVP's replacement has already been bought in Podolski.We would, just not that likely to be soldNot in arsenals class? A young winger who scored 8 in his first season in the prem shortly after recovering from a broken leg. He is easily arsenals classI'm a Norwich fan and he's not Arsenal class. By any stretch of the imagination.

Ipswich town close to signing george boyd and simon cox fulham and qpr keen on jay emmanuel thomas, jewell keen to pair up jimmy b with coppinger,andy drury to anchor midfield.(2)(18)I hope both of them come to Ipswich.Can't see Coppinger coming though and we're not selling JET, Jewell said do himself.For god sake coppinger is not joining ipswich it is true we did try to sign him last year but thats was then and ipswich have new targetsJewell actually said he would sell jet if right offer comes in and i would think premier league is more appealing than bottom half of championship and 7 1 hammerings at peterboroNot jimmy "dont play dont care and get 18k " bullardAt least it's not jimmy "dont play dont care and get 45k " bullard like it used to be at HullOh that's original. Brig up the 7-1 drumming. Convenient that you forgot the time we thrashed West Ham 5-1. Ipswich is not a bad place to be.
Although we may sell him at the right price. I think he was valued at 3 million.

Jay Rodriguez to snub Southampton and sign for Everton.(23)(28)How do you know did he tell you that himself haha plus dont everton have to sell first before they can buy a playerEverton cant aford himYou dont have any idea what he will do! No one does apart from him. Everton are interested apparently, but they need to sell before they can bid and they will not be able to match what Saints are offering. However if he wants to wait and see if Everton can buy him then fair enough Saints will move on to the next target. As a Saints fan I only want players who want to join and give 100% to the club.Not going to happen, will sign for Saints over the weekend, New keeper next week."As a Saints fan I only want players who want to join and give 100% to the club."
I agree, if he isn´t sure and fails to make a decision in the next couple of days then we should move on. Plenty of time to find someone else. (preferably someone who is proven in the prem)The funny part is if he will most probably snub your club (Everton) and every other club such as Aston Villa and Wigan because we have more potentialGood post mate,totally agree.Everton don't have the time left to do it. Southampton will have given him a deadline, if he misses that he risks not going to Everton if they can't raise the money. They don't have many players that are desirable for big money. Also, pienaar is top of their list, so they will be buying him first.Don't have many players desirable for big money? Are you mad? Baines, Fellaini, Heitinga, Osman, Cahill etc etc. Jeez I hate it when newly promoted fans think their team is the best thing since sliced bread. Hope Saints enjoy their religation battle this season.

Hull's new manager Steve Bruce will look to bring in at least 7 new players this summer. Veteran striker Emile Heskey is top of Bruce's list with the forward set to be offered a 2yr deal. Other players set to hold talks are:

Dave Jones, Wigan, £1.5m
Titus Bramble, Sunderland, £1.5m
Sam Baldock, West Ham, Loan
Craig Gordan, free transfer
Paul Green, free transfer(10)(21)Why would West Ham send Baldock to Hull when they could use him as a part exchange for other playersYou can have Bramble. And Bruce will only be there for a season.Doubt theyll get titus bramble for such a small fee.Bruce only payed 1mil for him when he signed for Sunderland. So I'd take 1mil easy he's rubbishWhy would Hull City swap Matty Fryatt , when Heskey is on a free?????Craig gordon won't drop to the championship, he's going to spurs anyway, i know this because i'm his boyfriendNothing like the old mates club is there? Bruce will be looking for 2 keepers, a centre half, and a centre forward. Alluded to the fact we have a very young squad so expect some zimmer frames turning up at Hull during the summer for a nice pension pay dayHeskey and meyler. Managed both and good loan move for meyler, still north east and championship experience.Craig gordan in talks with wigan so thats lies and heskey not linked with hull so dont know where you are hearing thisHeskey and gordan are coming to us!

ipswich and charlton told bids in region of 1 mil for colchesters anthony wordsworth the highest scoring midfielder in league 1(1)(10)Highest scorer in League 1?
Anthony Wordsworth, Colchester, 13 goals
Jeff Huges, Notts County, 17 goals

If you want to split hairs they both got 13 in the league but Hughes scored 4 in cups!What about J.Hughes Notts County for goals.Chill out statoNo, I've been told by good sources it'll be no more than 700-800k as he REALLY wants to come to usTo cafc btw ^^^^Be prepared to be majorly disappointed!Ipswich and million

now there's two words you dont see together often.Yawn...

Dixie dean? Few years ago! In recent times we have had halford, Lua lua and Garcia all move from u's to the premiership, along with mark kinsella who went onto play at international level for Ireland.

But anyway, Tranmere are older than colchester and have a bigger stadium so 'nuff said'! Haha

Dont see that it's really an argument based on club size anyway, sears is local and likes it at colchester and gets on well with existing players, plus big Sam is mates with john ward, I would be surprised to see him sign for anyone elseBumped into woody yesterday and he hasn't even spoken to any clubs.

Michael Laudrup rumoured to be in talks
about the Swansea City vacancy.
He would look back to La Liga for signings
to strengthen the squad, going back to
his old Mallorca and Getafe for possible
signings, maybe even loan deals from
Barcelona and Real Madrid. I have heard
Zinedine Zidane's son, Enzo is keen to
play under the former Real Madrid man if
he moves to Swansea, also because of
the style of play. Also Jonathan Dos
Santos would be interested in first team
football at the Liberty.(3)(20)If Jon Don Santos signed, so would Giovanni

Hoillet is going abroad to a team playing in European tournaments.

Maxi Rodrigeuz is going nowhere, you just need to go on the Liverpool FC website to see that.Agbonlahor to arsenal, are you sure? he had a shocking seasonDoubt Borussia Monchengladbach would let WBA have Hoilett for nothing having just signed him.Villa fans would love Agbonlahor to leave and Granty Holt to come in the difference between the two is Holt scores goals gabby don'tWe don't want Gabby gone! Holt is 31 & would cost us almost 7m - no thank you!
Gabby is Aston Villa. Gabby & Bent = Unstoppable!Hoillet has gone to b.gladbachYoure an absolute person to think Villa fans want Agbonlahor gone, he grew up in Birmingham and has been a villa lad his whole life, hes a cult hero at Villa, none of the Villa fans want him gone, holt is st, had one good year in the prem that doesnt mean anything and hes 31, and we know what Gabby can doGabby has only ever had pace now he's losing it gabby does score goalsAlbion 2 sign Jarvis? whr they gona get 10mill plus frm? neva gona happen.Why would Wolves loan Jarvis out? if he's not sold they'll keep hold of him surely?Why would WBA want Jarvis?

Charles N'Zogbia very keen on a move
to Norwich City
Good friends With Chris Hughton and wouldnt it be ironic if norwich start taking lamberts
players(15)(30)I disagree villa are still the bigger club so he'll stay putVilla WERE a bigger club, but not anymore I'm afraid.No it wouldn't be ironic. I think Alanis Morissette has A LOT to answer for.Villa are still having a bad season doesn't mean we are a small club previous to last season we finished 9th then we had 3 consecuative seasons finishing 6th something most teams in the Premier League can only dream of, we have won the Carling cup 5 times F.A cup 7 times won the top division 7 times and won the european Cup again stuff only a few Premier League teams can say we also have one of the best Academies in the world and best training facilities so are we really a small club.... n were massiveAston villa are very big club only champ L contenders are bigger. He would be a great buy, i think he is prb on 25000 so ths
Rule us out. I cant see lambert selling anyone untill he has had good look at whats av to him at villa. Ncfc mattHow long ago were these cup wins?
'Were' a big club yesWe don't want Lambert's playersI think his 50k a week wedge would destroy Norwich's strict wage budget considering their top earner is on 15kVilla are a bigger club bare in mind few years ago we were in the carling cup final and fa cup semi final and europe etc and you were in championship/league 1 so 1 bad season doesnt make us a worse team i almost 100% assure you n'zogbia would never go to norwich as norwich have now reached their peak whereas villa can go alot furtherGetting very fed up of childish posts about who is the bigger club and why? Villa have one bad season and fans of teams who for the last 30 years have trailed Villa but finish above them once creep out of the woodwork and post tripe. FACT - Only 5 English teams have won the European Cup. FACT - It is irrelevant when they won it, FACT - they won it after being Champions of England the season before and on a level playing field, Mr Abramovich!!. When you have won the European Cup or indeed any cup, or are 5th in the all time list of the gross number of pints since the inception of the Prem League (more than Spurs, Newcastle, Everton, Man City and Norwich!!), then you have a right to accuse Villa of being small, but until then go and stick your head in a bucket of cold water, clear your mind of all the petty jealousy and rubbish swimming around and come back and post something a bit more sensible and realistic.I'm a Norwich fan and its unbelievable people saying Villa are a smaller club than Norwich. We've had a good season and they had a poor one but it could all swing. That's all it is, one season.Let's end this now. I'm a Norwich fan. N'Zogbia is not coming to us. Villa are not a small club. In every way you want to measure it, they 3e a bigger club than Norwich. They had a bad season and Manager last year and the owner won't spend to keep them up with the top 8 in England. That doesn't make them a small club. Lambert will make them a top 10 club without money. Norwich will be ok. Hughton will have his own targets, but the wage structure will be less than 20k per week. McNally won't allow us to put the club at risk. In my opinion that is the right thing to do. Stay up this year and we can then build the city stand, be debt free and spend bigger on transfers and wages steadily. Like West Brom or Stoke have done. We may then be able to attract and afford players like N'Zogbia.
So, stop this nonsense about Villa being a small club and Norwich being bigger and better than everyone else - it's getting embarrassing. OTBCI wouldnt mind 15 grand a week!!

He left Reading so he could play Premiership football you know.....Mills - Maybe, Celtic are still leading

Rhodes - No Chance

Miyachi - No Chance

Piazon - NO CHANCE

also bolton to sign Matt mills - 2.5m

senagalese winger 1m
Adrian marriapa 4mMmmm. Bolton 100 million in debt and out of the premiership. They're a selling club not a buying clubBolton owe just 10m to their owner Eddie Davies, that is all.90 mill to our owner, only 10 mill to bank, better financial position than a lot of teams. Owner open to signing young talent but not allowing stupid wages. Quick return to the prem nxt season. Lot of dead wood cleared out, lot of young players cumming through.Is there anybody Southampton are not signing even Wenger has come out and said he was Ryo to go back to Bolton100 million dept is 100 million debt doesn't matter who its to. ha bolton straight back to the premiership? dream on. Mid table next season at best90 mil in debt to the owner who doesnt want it back because he is a bolton fan so it sorta does change thingsDoesn't want it back becuase hes a bolton fan? so why doesn't he write the debt off then? keep dreaming sunshineWhen do you think the Southampton owners will be asking for there millions back then??When they settle in the premiership and start bringing money in fella.

eading have had a £2 million bid for Nottingham Forest right-back Chris Gunter turned down.

Royals offered the cash for the Forest defender last week before being rejected.

The Wales international played in his nation's 2-0 defeat to Mexico in New Jersey on Sunday and was being watched by Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers.

However, it is now thought that the former Reading manager's interest in the 22-year-old has cooled.

And Royals could be in the driving seat when it comes to landing the former Tottenham Hotspur player having already captured his Gunter's friend and former team mate Garath McCleary from Forest this summer.

Get Wokinghham(2)(14)Wait so all the news about Brendan Rodgers going to Liverpool was not true... get your facts straight mate.Catch up we dont want him this all happened donks agoHe was still Swansea boss when he watched the friendly....mate.As per usual get wokingham is two weeks behind, this was in the post and chronical weeks ago.. At the end of the month you'll read today's artical that the royals have pulled out of signing gunteras they don't believe he's worth 3milWhy are there so many deluded reading fans. Get with the programme. Our ETHOS will not change for at least two years which sir madjeski is chairman. Then possibly (but doubt it) we will splash the cash. Are you a closet fan?We know our ethos hasn't changed, but how would that stop us signing Gunter for around 2m? We've spent that sum on players in the past, Halford, Fae, Mills etcI think you will find that we will spend big, but not stupidly. We will not sign players if clubs try to rip us off and will always stick within the wage bracket, but the transfer fee is not too much of a problem.


08 Jun 2012 19:08:54
Tom Barchuzen from Blackpool to go on season long loan to Fleetwood Town(8)(14)Erm i don't think so, he is now a first team squad memberWho will trust a fool's rumour who can't even spell the players name correctly - Tom Barkhuizen, is the person I think you mean.First team squad member? Are you serious?
After being out on loan at league 2 Hereford last season he is now in our first team. He will go out on loan again to either league 1 or 2. Personally I think Fleetwood would be a good loan for him, at least then he wouldn't have far to travel.Yes first team, with a 7 sub bench he will not be going anywhere plus with Blackpool reentering a reserve team the lad is staying put.So you're telling me that Tom will be in a team where Lua Lua struggled to get into, even if it is on the bench (where Lua Lua spent most of his time at the back end of the season). He is no where near that ability yet and he will more than likely go out on loan. Not good enough for the first team either.Good move I think, the lad needs more experience.The reserve team would not count as first team, so even if he doesnt go out on loan, he is still not first team. He may get the occasional seat on the bench.
Anyway, he will go out on loan because getting experience in a first team is much more valuable than reserve team football.

Reading are favourites to land Brighton's Liam Bridcutt ahead of Aston Villa and Fulham. Newly-promoted Royals are preparing a £2million bid for the midfielder, 23(7)(20)He won't go to a small club like thatWe arent a small club anymore, we are the 9th richest club in the world in terms of ownership with 4bn from Boris Zingarevich and Anton Zingarevich, if you dont believe it, do your research! Anyway, its a bigger club than the one hes had now.He won't go for 2 millionSo being rich apparently makes Reading a big club? Uh, you have to win major trophies for that.He is going nowhere. Especially for as little as 2milBrighton are a big club? Could've fooled me. They moved from the playing field and finally get a proper stadium and suddenly think they are big.He won't go for a small fee like thatMoney means nothing!
Man Utd is skint but still are HUGE!Reading are bigger than Brighton. To be honest I don't want him.You,re right we are not a big club...YET!.But if you can achieve Four promotions including a playoff final win in 12 years at a "playing field"with virtually no money and when its hard to attract the best players,then what do you think we can achieve with a "proper stadium" And when that day comes it wont just be you that looks a fool.Brighton are the 10 biggest season ticket sellers in england! thats a fact, over23 thousand ticket sold already not bad for a small seaside club how many have you sold reading?Haha I love brightons big club mentality. They move from a leisure facility to an actual stadium after ten years and now suddenly their Barcelona. The best part of 15 years you've been in the third tier occasionally fluttering in the second. Big club you is no longerWhat are you lot expecting ?? 5million for a player that quite frankly was not that impressive.Brightons Max Attendance before the playing fields 37,000, So only a Temp dip in attendances down to no ground.Reading have sold around 18000 season tickets which is where it has been capped at. Brighton may have more ST holders but you're still a smaller club than usReading are not the 9th richest club in the world! Antons father is not involved and that was confirmed! Its just this Anton fella. Some Reading fans have been unbearable since this takeover!Boris is involved and that has been confirmed SJM himself even said so and confirmed in a radio interview that Boris is a billionaire at least twice over.Boris is involved as he was looked at by the pl. however he is not interested in day to day running of the club as this is Anton's project but has promised funds to Anton if needed. So no not technically the 9th richest club as some ott royals are dreaming but potentially we are pretty well offWhat happens when Anton Zingarevich gets bored with his new toy and takes his money out?Anton is the only one involved that is a fact. Boris had to take the FPPT, but it was confirmed he is not getting involved at the minute, maybe down the line sometime. THAT was also confirmed. Regardless it doesnt mean all that money is Readings, you have a secure future and will get investment with facilities etc and a budget each season. Doesnt mean your billionaires and can buy who you want.

-Jonathon Forte, Notts County
- Dan Seaborne, Brighton(8)(40)Surman's going nowhereWhy would we be bringing Surman back? We don't need him. Yes, he is a Saints legend, but there are better optionsSaints are supposed to have a second to none world wide scouting system. Is it believable we will still only sign players based in the UK-where we know prices are inflated?
Let's have a bit more imagination.Clyne will never sign for Southampton.Surman has been wanted by Newcastle since January . Southampton have the most unrealistic fans"Surman has been wanted by Newcastle since January . Southampton have the most unrealistic fans"....You think Saints fans are the most unrealistic because someone said we are after Surman? Even though we are not after him thats a stupid comment. He is Saints through and through and has stated he would like to return one day...Also you need to look through this site again, there are a lot more fans from other teams who are more unrealistic than Saints.No, Pompey fans like posting unrealistic rumours about SaintsCan't see Surman playing for Pardew! Perhaps Saints fans are a bit more knowledgeable than those from Newcastle.Saints legend he is, but not good enough what so ever for us any more. We can do far better these days, and can see us destroying a team like norwich this season, with or without saints reject surman in there team-end off storyYou should change your name to real southhampton as u lot getting far to big for your boots. U think every player is going to jump when u go calling. Come aug u are in for a very big shock. I think reading will do much betterReally hope we(saints) don't go for Clyne. Overrated and overpriced. If Man Utd want to pay 10mill for him they're mad. Bit of shopping around and we'll get better abroad for less than half the price.Mick Channon, Matt Le tiss. These are saints legends. Surman was a decent player. But legend??!!!Why wouldn't Clyne sign, just because bigger clubs are after him"Saints legend he is, but not good enough what so ever for us any more. We can do far better these days, and can see us destroying a team like norwich this season, with or without saints reject surman in there team-end off story".....Its Saints fans like you that give us a bad name, its if your really a Saints fan. Surman is not a Saints "reject" and saying we will be destroying Norwich or any team for that matter is just stupid. We will do well next season, but saying stuff like that is dumb.Never?Why not brainac did he tell you that himselfMatey going on about us changing our name to Real Southampton. Have you ever fault maybe just maybe this rumour and many more stupid rumours posted on here are by our wonderful best surported club in the world neighbours no money Pompey. We do not think we are to big for our boots (grow up) no one is making you read these comments certainly not making you reply. Keep your opinions to yourself. Out of interest which club to you follow.As a saints fan, I'm not sure Chaplow quite has enough for the prem, although a useful squad player and would be happy for him to stay. Without doubt he is an excellent Championship player and anyone who signs him in that league will benefit..As a BHA fan I'd love Chaplow to join Albion. He's unattractive but breaks up the opposition midfield play and then gives the play to more skillful players to do their stuff. I've always been impressed when he's played against us.

With Damien Johnson signing for Fleetwood it looks increasingly likely that Michael Collins could be making a return to Huddersfield Town.(4)(23)Haha don't make me laugh we sold him when we where in league 1 because we didn't want/need himSaying that, if you can score another winner against Leeds then welcome backI doubt it. If he can't get into Scunthorpes team,he ain't gonna get in Towns team.C'mon Michael Collins we know its you, own up!Why do people have to make up total rubbish? Why would he be back at town when he has done nothing for Scunthorpe? If he was to leave them it would probably be to a worse team. I did like him when he was at town but no way a championship playerWas it Michael Collins who wrote the above??Ha micheal collins is league 2 maybe league 1 player at the best no chance he of to townHaving a laugh when Keith Andrews is on our radar after recently being released by west brom so why would we get Collins back when we can have someone with the experience of the premier leagueYou mean the Micheal Collins who has played a massive 33 times for Scunthorpe in the last 2 years ...yeah i doubt that very muchHe was sat infront of me at Wembley in the play-off final, but i still doubt this, a step in the wrong direction, we're building for the future, not stepping into the pastCollins signed for rotherham last week

08 Jun 2012 17:23:47
Norwich City have promised Hughton the most financial freedom in the clubs history, according to NCFC CEO McNally VIA BBC. It is assumed that this will mean Hughton will have well over 15million in transfer money, as last season an est. 15million was spent during the two transfer windows.(13)(14)This is true as the club have got rid of a lot of their debts and a good finishing position in the EPL last season has also benefited them financially... OTBCWhat i actually says is any money made from selling players will given to him to buy players plus any money on top of that, that he gets from the transfer budget which is at least 10 million. so overall you could have a big amount of money to spend depending on how much you get for the players. So Whitbread is free transfer so you wont get anything from that, but if you sold Holt then you will get at least 15 million depending on the asking price Norwich want for Grant Holt which i'd say 4-5 million maybe less so it all depends on what you get for your out going players and your in coming players. but you should still have a transfer budget of 10-15 million as your transfer fund. So you are looking at a transfer budget of 20 million depending on who you sell but this seem like the best idea for your club overall buy looking at the debt you have which a lot less than a lot of clubs but again you don't have the financial backing that clubs like Man City or Man Utd have to pay of your debts so your debt is pretty big for your club. So this sell to buy idea added on to the already large transfer budget is a promising idea for the club as it means you have the money to bring in players you wouldn't otherwise be able to afford. Good luck in who you buy form a Saints fanNCFC have decided to clear all their outstanding debt this season hence the transfer budget will remain similar to last season, so prob around 15mill of the course of the two windows. we do not need to sell and will not entertain bids (mcnally) and personally i actually do not expect unplanned departures now CH is in place, unless anyone is stupid enough to pay 6mill for a 31yr old who has had one good season in the top flight. doubtfull. city fan in the knowOP here - to the second comment - I think we will have a base budget of about 15million, maybe a little more. the clubs outsider debt is almost completely payed off. and all investors have stated they do not mind putting internal debt aside for the time being.
Holt's contract looks likely to be sorted, with the new contract agreement of russ martin today. it is a sign that the club are moving on to sorting out new terms with players still within contract. The feeling from twitter is that holt wants to stay, and it is public knowledge that his children do not want him to relocate.
as for selling of other players. can really only see 3 or 4 players being sold. (Barnett, C. Martin, etc.) but at the moment a budget W/O any sales is looking between 15-20m for the course of the season.Think you have both got the figure wrong. At the after dinner awards the chairman said, that there was an EXTRA 10 million to spend on players. So as Norwich spent around 15 million over the last season, it could be as much as 25 million this season. Expect 15 million to be spent during the summer and the rest will be saved for the January window. These figures are without selling ANY players, so any players sold will make the total to spend even more! Good times being a Norwich supporter!Norwich won't need to spend big, we need another centre back, and another striker, then any other players leaving will need to be replaced like for like.
Hughton will inject a new lease of life into the squad hopefully enough to avoid second season syndrome, I was gutted to see Lambert leave but this whole episode may turn out to be a blessing in Hughton we trust.I'd like to see Curtis Davies, Nathan Redmond, Robert Snodgrass, Henri Lansbury, Jordan Rhodes, Kyle Naughton/Nathaniel Clyne... Snodgrass still wants to link up with Johnson and Howson and Hughton has seen Henri in the championship last season. Hopefully Hughton can pinch Davies and Redmond and Rhodes can join up with Pilks.Wow look i like NCFC and i'm a saints fan but don't get your hopes up on big buys this season, not being harsh but your defense is crap lets be honest on that it was letting you down last season, when you should have won you lost because your defense was just not good enough. that is all CH needs to work on at this stage the rest of your team are good and i'm sure you will stay up next season, i'm not sure about Saints staying up because i don't think our defense is up to scratch with the premier league but we will give it a good, it all really depends on what Nigel Adkins does in this transfer window that is going to be major thing for us and i feel its the same for you, As a team you are good not the best fans i have ever seen when i watched a game against you a couple of years ago but still get behind your team. I just think the only weakness in your team is your defense i'm prove on that and you will be unstoppable and you would only need to spend 10-12 million at the most just to improve your defense and mid field and you will be hitting good figures next season. I really look forward to playing at home and away next season and we will give you the best game we've got no doubt about that :) good luck to yaWhen we had both Whitbread and Ayal on, our defense was emense. We didn't have bad defenders, but we most certainly are lacking on a LB and now a CB with whitbread not getting a new contract. I think 2 defenders will be bought and put straight into the first team. followed by one more to be put on the bench, 2 new forwards and 2 midfielders to create first team competition.

wolves set to sign Bjrn Bergmann Sigurarson for 4m reported in ssn and norway tv(20)(19)There is a bit of chatter across Europe but no official announcements yet. Don't get too excited yet!Hes going to cardiffHe's not going to CardiffWhy would he go to Cardiff when he could go to wolves?? Wolves are bigger and better club. Dream on red dragons lol! Oh sorry blue birds lol!! Joke club...I hope he joins done my research on him known goal scorer even though it was in a minor league you still have to score though also said to be the next Imbrahimovic hopefully a bit more hard working though I also think Jarvis will stay Hammil to have good season with Kightly if he stays playing behind striker also like to see a creative midfielder come in or a goalscoring midfielder a Keith Andrews who is on a free or Peter Whittingham from Cardiff who is a very good player and Kightly better stay because we looked after him gave him a chance but if he would shove that back at us then stuff him up the wolves.He'll be Jordan Rhodes strike partner at Huddersfield next season, IF Grayson can't secure his preferred option.

when portsmouth get taken over by chanrai, appletons first 3 signings will be jon parkin, paytner and george thorne on season loan with etuthu and futacs signing new contracts(1)(21)What do you mean-when?

Firstly, I suspect HMRC will not be accepting 2p in the .

Secondly, very doubtful Chanrai will be able to slip through the "fit and proper" owner assessment again.

I think this only adds another nail into the lid, and your club will be 6 foot under before too long.Chanrai isn't going to be investing any money into Portsmouth.
The only reason he's interested in buying Portsmouth is to he his money back.
Once he's striped your club bare he'll flog you off to the next fraudster.
And the circle continues...Etuhu has already signed for barnsleyLet's hope you get the 15 points or more deduction you so deserve - and get relegated again!Youre not gonna have a club soon never mind playersAppleton is looking for a young side. So I doubt Jon Parkin will be signed. Paynter is a possibility but he's getting on the old side. Futacs will probrably stay and Etuhu is now a Barnsley playerWhere did you here etuhu signed for barnsley? i think you're talking a load of rubbish to be honestOn Barnsley's official site.You've got to love people making stuff up when they don't even check the basic facts like Etuhu doesn't even play for you anymore. It is too little too late for Portsmouth and on 30 June 2012 they will be wound up.Laugh my a"@e off at the pompey fan. 'I think your talking a load of rubbish to be honest' ha proves the point that pompey fans clearly cannot read! Everyone is leaving a sinking ship!I've heard on 30th June Pompey will release all unsold players from their contracts as they wont be able to pay them and will be offically wound up on 01 July 2012. HAPPY DAYSIf they offered 2p in the pound
a creditors
tell them to stick it
insult to the good people
of hampshireI hope the taxman shuts
you down
2p is an insult and you
should not be allowed
to get away with it

two years time you ll be

in the same boat again
nothing changesWell tbf if the 'taxman' does shut us down no one will get an thing.. now how does that help? also etuhu has signed a new (lower wages) contract..Etuhu has signed for Barnsley! Even Pompey fans dont know whats going on at their own club!I find it hard to believe how any 'football' fan can want a club closed down, i wouldn't even want the saints shut down. Funny how they talk about our problems so much, yet they still couldn't beat us?Patheric for so called 'football fans' to want to see any club closed down. You bring shame on youself and your club.
Pompey are not the first and most certainly will not be the last club to enter Administration and 2p in the pound is a typical offer, so just be careful how much you shhot your mouth off, it could be your club very soon.Yeah etuhu has signed, however we will never die!I am a saints fan, and I have to say,i agree thatwe shouldn't be here wishing for a team to be shut down, yes, pompey fans showed no mercy when we were in a similar position, butwith no pompey, we have no rivalry and many people will be deeply hurt. Show some respect.

Burnley to seal deals for Richard Chaplow and Jason Shackell once Rodriguez finalises Southampton transfer.(7)(12)Eddie Howe to up his bid to sign Jason Shackell from Derby County.... Lancashire telegraph.. FACTSeal deals? You're interested in Shackell, you have had a bid rejected, Cloughs said he's not for sale. yet you think you're going to seal the deal? Yeah, right...Chaplow has said he is not going anywhere do your research before making up a rumourChaplow is NOT part of the Jay Rod deal! He said hes staying at SaintsHad chaplow before, dont want him again... we want match winners..... not ball watchersWould you burnley fans
know a match winner
if you saw oneShackell will leave for 2.5M but Burnley have only bid 1.2M so unless they up the bid he is going nowhere"had chaplow before don't want him again"
Too funny. For the first part of last season when saints powered their way to the top of the league Chaplow was about our best player. Then he got injured.
Today's lesson: he would walk into Burnley's side.

Moussa dembele will stay with fulham this summer n will se how things go b4 commiting to a nee deal . Dempsey has pledged to only leave for champions league football n as no1 has even bid for him , he may stay at fulham . Aj will leavevas will etuhu , sa bh riise, haliche n simon davies . In will come niccolita of st ettiene , kuba blaszcikowszki of bvb , jansen of hamburg . If pogrebnyak dont sign fulham will audaciously bid for Giroud n if that goes belly up , will move for lopez of lyon or gingac (again) on loan deals.(4)(2)Can confirm that Fulham will indeed keep Moussa Dembele unless a stupidly good offer comes in. MD himself has said he feels like he owes Martin Jol for making him the player he is today, so will perhaps also sign a new deal so FFC get more money from the deal than if he was to leave this summer.

Nicolitta will NOT be joining Fulham, he has better offers on the table.

Would be ridiculously happy with Olivier Giroud but I imagine he will stay with Montpellier after winning the French league and thus qualifying for the Champions League.

Lisandro Lopes played 43 times for Lyon this past season and scored 26 goals, I don't think they'd loan him out, he's a world class striker.

Gignac is possible, but would rather not after he declined us and Everton saying he deserves bigger.

Blaszcikowszki - Maybe, but unlikely.

Marcel Jansen is very possible.

Southampton Football Club rumours
INS: Daniel Powell £2,000,000 from Mk dons
Matthew Jarvis £4,000,000 from Wolves
Jack Butland £3,000,000 from Birmingham City
Jay Rodriguez £7,000,000 from Burnley
Lewis Dunk £3,000,000 from Brighton
Kevin de Bruyne loan from Chelsea
Ruben Suarez free agent
Mario Gaspar free agent

Lee Barnard 600k to Leeds
Morgan Schneiderlin £6million to Olympique Lyonnais
aaron martin loan to palace #(6)(32)Absolute rubbish-I really can't believe Saints have such deluded fans.

If you are really a Saints supporter, why don't you know a little more about your club?

Who is it that Adkins thinks will show himself to be one of the best midfield players in the Premiership next season?

Yes, Morgan-who you have just sold!

Get back to fantasy football, and stop giving the club a bad name.Try 10m for jarvis kidDaniel Powell-2million?
if this is true its a bit much saying they accepted a 450k bid from Derby county.Jarvis for 4 mill, just going on loan then?No way that Jarvis will move for less than 7.5 milSchneidelin has only recently signed a new contract , so i doubt he will be moving anytime soonSchneiderlin has already expressed his delight at finally getting the chance to play in the PL...why would we sell him?

Also those are some laughable signings.4 mill what planet you living on 10 millionWolves have already rejected a nine mil bid for jarvis so no hopeSchneiderlin is not going anywhere obviously, don't be so ridiculous.
Wolves fans please get real. I know your playing hard to get with the price but not in a million years will he go for 10mill. Whether you need to sell or not is totally irrelevant. He is prem standard and won't want a year minimum in the championship. If he wants to go he'll go and I suspect it'll be for 6-7mill and not to saints as we seem more interested in Ince.Which one of jarvos shoelaces do you want for that measly ammount?What the others have said. Already established dunk will cost 5 mill. Up past your bedtime?You may be in the prem but you have no bigger pulling power than Wigan or Stoke. just cos you're in the perm that doesn't mean players will go to you. You're not a big club like Leeds, Forest or West Ham so you'll never get these players since decent clubs will be after themWolves fans except that Jarvis won't want to play for a championship because he's to good for you and you won't get 10m for him, he'll force a deal through to leave8-10 mil for Jarvis so you got no chanceJarvis worth 4mil max, over priced and better players for the same moneyMatt Jarvis for 10 mill?! please wake up from your fantasy world. He will go for 4 mill, 5 max and Wolves will realise this when it comes to you inevitably selling him to lessen your wage bill4 million for jarvis? Thats just stupid 8 goals and 5 assists for the team that finished bottom by quite a long way in the end! If Downing went for 20 million then Jarvis is worth at least 8 million. And he wont go to a newly promoted club like Southampton. Expect him to go to a club more established in the league than that. Personally i wouldnt be surprised if he went to Villa, this isnt a rumour i've heard but he would fit in well and villa arent where they were 3 years ago so players like the standard of jarvis are what they should be looking to signWe are not a big club like Leeds, Notts Forest and West Ham? Sorry but thats rubbish, yes Leeds and Notts Forest are big clubs and I would love to see them back in the Premier League, but they are in the Championship...We have more appeal over them. Also we can certainly be equal to West Ham at least! We finished above them last season and with the financial backing and facilities we have we are a big club.Jarvis....4 million for an England international with 3 yrs on his contract and 25yrs old. You are either deluded, a comedian or an 8yr oldA few facts here guys from a Wolves and I do believe I have a brain and I am not drunk or deluded:-

1) Wolves have no desire to sell Jarvis.
2) Wolves have no neccesity to sell Jarvis.
3) Jarvis quite rightly will want to play Premier League football.
4) Wolves do not need to remove Jarvis from the wage bill as it has been quite publicly stated that Roger Johnson is the only player who does not have a relegation wage drop clause.
5) I expect Wolves to sell Jarvis to the highest bidder to eliminate any possible distruption within the camp, I am not going to claim I know who this may or may not be, that includes the point that if they bid enough it's possible he could go to Southampton.
6) It WILL take a bid of over 7m for Moxey to even consider allowing him to talk to another club.
and finally
7) I couldn't care less if he goes because he only plays for half a season anyway, for the first 25 or more games last season he was complete donkey doo and only came alive when he realised Wolves were doomed and yes I watched the games as I'm a season ticket holder, Seat 77 Row T Stan Cullis Stand!

BobbybuffonFor all the people saying wolves fans get real he isn't worth 10 million, why do so many clubs want him so bad then? ur sayin we should let him go for pennys when we won't!! we don't need to sell anybody! were in a very good financial position, and nobody has gone out saying they want to leave apart from o'hara saying he has no intrest in playing in the championship, so all u jokers DO 1!!3m for Dunk.....where do you want him delivered, I'll drive him there myself.Some fair points above from Wolves posters but what you need to remember is that Saints have a ton of experience in selling on quality players.
Desire to sell? necessity to sell? These are basically completely irrelevant in this scenario. In this situation the player is king(rightly or wrongly) and if he decides he wants to play either for a bigger club or in a higher league then he's a goner. The club won't hold out for silly money like 10 mill if he is determined to go. Decent player but he is not worth that and you are being fairly generous in labelling him an England international. He may have caps. It he is currently nowhere near the England set up!Haha Jarvis for 10m no thanksI'm a Wolves fan and although i fully expect Jarvis to leave the club this summer as its clear his a player far better than the Championship status the club now holds i just wish fans of other clubs i.e. Southampton would be slightly more respectful and realise there is no way he will leave for 4 million and that his worth is far more than that. Also i personally think that once one club makes a definitive move for him we could see 2 or 3 join the bidding

I've just heard from a usually reliable source who is close to one of the joint Chairmen at Bradford City that a new investor is to be announced within the next few days. The final detail on the arrangements is currently being agreed. Forget about anybody from the Middle East however, the new investor is Scottish with previous links to the club in a non-playing capacity. According to the source, he is a self-made man with extensive business experience and will combine his role as an investor with an Executive role within the club. Only time will tell.(1)(10)Archie Christie? It will never happen, no one will be investing any time soon.Duncan Bannatyne? ;)Welcome back Gordon gibb!!

Oxford manager Chris Wilder has made a striker to challenge James Constable & Tom Craddock his main transfer targets.

Strikers linked -

Jon Shaw - Gateshead
Frank Nouble - Released by West Ham
Scott Rendell - Wycombe
Jon Parkin - Released by Cardiff
Robbie Hall - Season long loan from West Ham(9)(9)The only way you will get Scott Rendell back is if Stuart Beavon stays at Wycombe & we sign another striker - otherwise Rendell will remain a Wycombe player. He scored 19 goals the last time we were in League Two, so he won't be leaving.So why try to offload him to Oxford last seasonBecause we had Stuart Beavon, Ben Strevens, Paul Hayes, Marcello Trotta .... - He had a blip last season & fell out of favour. However we're limited in this position at the moment and Rendell is currently 1/3 strikers at the club concluding of top scorer Stuart Beavon on 25 goals, & youth striker Matt McClure. So he won't be going anywhere & we're under a transfer embargo so won't be signing anyone soon meaning he won't be leaving. If Beavon leaves Rendell will be our only striker with any experience. Plus go look at his comments on the BBC hes focused on Wycombe. Bye.You can keep rendell. We need people to score goals and he didn't with us..No chance ha ha ha

Charlton Fans stop with the list of lower league team strikers that were 'going to sign'.

We are signing N'Gussen for £400k and any other strikers would have to be proven in the Championship at least, if not on loan from the premier league in order to start over BWP and Kermo.

I can't see many starting over Kermo but BWP needs to beef up to survive in the championship and convert his 1 on 1 chances.(5)(4)N'Guissen is dog poop!Both Quinn & Maguire would do well to come to Charlton and of course we would do Gr8 to buy them ,. they will know that we can easily go up with these players plus Zoko N Ngussen not to mention Beaven and Shaun WritePhillips,. Job Done !!We're not getting n'guessan, hes not good enough to push for a playoff place atleast^^ This comment is rubbish!400k is presumably what Millwall are paying us to take him! He is awful and should never be a Championship player. I would like to think that our ambitions are higher than what he can do for us. Don't need that many new players as most of last years team can make us into a top half Championship side. Do agree that BWP needs to improve chances to goals ratio or risk losing his place.

Leeds fans- here's an update on the major investment that Leeds have been in talks about receiving.

Leeds United and Flamingo land have applied for joint permission to build a football themed theme park in the large car par area behind the West Stand. The complex will be known as Flamingo Park @ Elland Road Stadium.
Relocating the car park won't be a problem, as I understand that the club are initially expecting ticket sales to decline greatly next season, in part due to this controversial announcement.

The reasoning behind this is a potential niche in the market in the Leeds area for an in-city theme park, which is expected to generate enormous revenues for the club. My source also tried to suggest that as part of the deal, Leeds will play in pink away from home. Not sure if I believe this part of the rumour, but in fairness we haven't revealed our away kit yet so who knows?!(18)(4)Flamingo Land already sponsor the development squad so it sounds like the next logical step. Hows about an appearance of Meerkats at half time to create some interest?Should have lots of candidates for the wing!

(I presume this is a delayed post from April?)And gordon gibb the owner of flamingo land still owns the ground at valley parade.!
be careful you dont get stung by him.The reason the away kit has not been announced is because they are sticking with the black kit for next season. The rest of this rumour is complete nonsence

MOTGreat just what we need another roller coaster ride!

Wolves have agreed a deal to sign lillestrom player bjorn bergmann sigurdarson
Sky sports news(18)(12)Is this sky sports news on the tv or the website? Couldn't see anything online.
Hope we get him, I guess he'll chat to us and everton now to see who'll offer him the best terms. hopefully stale can sway him!Theres nothing on sky sports news about it. would love it to happen thoughCardiff are interested and with a 100m investment we have a much better chance of signing him than youWouldn't put your shirt on it .....whatever colour it isSigardurson will sign for Wolves as he likes their manager. Reading bid 1 million with add ons for him but Lillestrom wanted 4 million up front which Reading weren't willing to match. Cardiff did bid for him but seems they didn't meet the valuation either.He's had medica today at cardiff so goodluck sherlockJust because Cardiff have money to spend doesnt mean they'll get him! Sigurdsson would prefer a move to Wolves simply because of the managerStale Solbakken is going to be a success he attracts the attention of Sigurdsonn so he will join us up the wolves

Stephen Quinn and young centre back Harry Maguire are thought to be in talks with Ipswich Town reprasentatives following a fee of around 2 million + clauses being ageed between the two clubs(11)(6)If you keep saying the same rumour on here it wil eventually come true! That is how it works, right?Quinn and maguire signing for ipswichQuinn and maguire set to complete moves for ipswichQuinn signing for coventry deal done 550K. Didn't like ipswich as a clubEveryone is obsessed with Quinn signing. However everyone if forgetting that's he's really not very good!Lol Quinn to Coventry! Mickey Quinn coming out of retirement is your only chance. All the best in league 1 ha ha haWould just like to say To the above, most people wouldn't regard Ipswich as much better than Coventry. You have an excessively rich owner Nd are just constantly (currently Anyway) in the shadow of your neighbours who are working off a tighter budget and performing a LOT better. Peterborough fan so not hating just saying..

If he leaves Bradford it will be for a club back down south in the football leagueOliver is leaving Bradford thats why signed 2 centre backs as first choice. See YaOliver will go back down south if he goes anywhere and stockport are welcome to williams and hannah, a good goal scorer in lower leagues but nothing better, his profile has been made better with being at city, get used to the lower leagues ross, thats where you belongNahki is still in BermudaNakki is not in bermuda, FACT, he will also still be at bradford for next season, FACT

Bournemouth are gonna let marc Pugh go to burnley in a swap deal for seb Hines plus 500k(1)(16)Who's seb hines ? think youll find its Zavon and he won't be going anywhere.I don't think so Hines was shocking only scored from a keeper mistake at shef utd plus we have 7 strikers at moment I heard stock and Addison are nextI dont think they would let him go, and if this is the hine who came to us on loan then no thanks, not impressiveThe Hines Burnley have is Zavon Hines not Seb. I think Hines could possibly have a future at Burnley - just needs some extended first team time. Is Pugh actually ready to play up a level?Marc Pugh goin to birmingham not burnley look on birmingham rumour page and that's from Birmingham fans apparently wade Elliot coming to afc Bournemouth with cash for Pugh so we have to wait and seeWe do not want Hines back - we have more than enough strikers, and he only scored one lucky goal for us while on loan.Zeb hines plays for M'boro.Burnley arnt intrested in pughDont you mean zavon hines .Birmingham dont have a manager so Pugh cant be going there , plus Wade Elliot`s on to much for money for Bournmouth to afford ...Dont want Elliot we will be keeping Pugh and be a championship side next season. If not you can have Pugh then

IM a charlton fan here
there is a rumour going around that
we are very intrested in two off your
players Quinn and Maguire. I personaly
think these players r gr8 and if we got
them and zoko and ngussen ill be happy.

i want to no wat u united fans think
kaylem1300(2)(14)Maguire won't come to you he'll go premier league and we'll want 3.5 million to match newcastles offer. It would be a shame to lose quinn and he will leave as he is quality and too good for league one, I wouldn't settle for anything less that 750K and I don't think McCabe of Wilson will. Quinn will go whether he goes to you is a different matterThey are both overatedMaguire's top quality for a 19-year old and can go all the way, but Newcastle haven't tabled a bid.

Quinn - likely to be Ipswich-bound, with Blackpool next in line3.5 million is a joke he's a good player but you're in financial problems so 1 or 1.5 million at maxMaguire has a turning circle like the Ark Royal; worth 250k max. Probably about the same for ferret features

Jay Rodriguez. £7,000,000(16)(25)These would be great. I'd be pleased if we nailed 50% of them to be fair. Not sure about Whitbread, the rest would be great signings. We do need 7 or 8 signings.I agree with all of them they would be great aquisitions and are all realisticI'd prefer someone like Lewis Dunk or Harry Maguire instead of Zak Whitbread

Maybe lacks a bit of pace but heading good,skill good,finishing excellent. Works very hard for 90 mins too. Been unlucky at Toon due to Ba and Cisse but check out his goals per game when he got the chance.(5)(17)Hooper is twice no 4x as good as leon best saints fan

QPR could make a 12.8mill Bid for French Star, Oliver Giroud(11)(20)Far Far too good for QPR. Considering he would be guranteed CL football at Montpellier, or clubs in Europe such as Wolfsburg, Newcastle & Arsenal after him. Deluded club, deluded fans.That should read QPR HAVE made a formal bid - factThere is no way he would go to QPR and also judging by his club's valuation, he'd cost about twice that as wellWould be a brilliant addition to many big clubs,would be a amazing addition to QPR who really do seem to have the right owners in place who seem to have great ambitions for the club and not just for the time being but a club for the future what with new training ground and stadium plans,sickens me to say this being a fulham fan,but they really do seem to be on the up,have to give credit where its due.Hardly a deluded club, this states QPR 'could make a 12.8mill bid' there is nowhere in this sentance stating that the bid has been confirmed, rejected or accepted, it is a rumour, I agree that he wouldn't go to QPR but there is no need for calling QPR, and their fans deluded.People saying that these types of player would never go to QPR are wrong, look at Man City before the money came in, they were nobodys yet somehow managed to sign top top quality players, money is a massive driving force in football and QPR are going places in the future, I for one could see some big money moves for QPR in the future, not right now I don't think, but in the future, maybe 3 or 4 years from now the fees could rise to the 5M-12M mark as an average.Agree that it is unlikely that Giroud would come to Loftus Road but the owners are VERY ambitious and QPR may well sign some players this summer that will raise a few eyebrows.Sounds like a gooner moaning about QPR probably just upset at their own lack of spending. Although giroud will most probably end up at a champions league club but why shouldn't a club with ambition aim highThis is more of a statement of intent by tony fernandes than a real chance of a signing

Sheffield United agree package with chesterfield for goalkeeper Tommy Lee but can't agree on a fee Sheffield United are willing to stump up £300,000 for the Spireites number 1 but chesterfield want £600,000(5)(6)How the hell can you say they agree a package but not a fee. Thats the same thing surelyTommy cannot talk to Sheff U and agree a contract package while under contract with Chesterfield. Chesterfield need to agree a fee first so sounds doubtfulTommy has been give perimssion to talk
to Sheffield United and has a 3 year contract
on the table the only stumbling block is both
clubs can't agree feeLees got to be worth at least 500 kAnyone but them !!Lee is defo worth 500k. Dont think he should go sheff utd hes better than that maybe a birmingham class. but i have heared lee is linked with crystal palace.Lee has had no offers from sheffield united only leeds. the other week we he was surposed to been seen outside the ground was bollox as he was in mexico. the only clubs gone for him are charlton which he doesnt want to move down south and leed united but doesnt want to go as he is a manchester united fan and this is from him so stop these silly rumours!

Millwall are in advanced talks to sign doncaster midfielder James Coppinger- should be done on Monday(8)(9)No chance!We don't need anymore midfieldersWe do need another midfielder as racon and mkandwire are still injured and trotter not certain to stay.we also want montgomery from sheffield unitedCant see this happening!But who knows!?Also heard this,think it may happen some time this week.No chance Kenny Jackett would be interested. We already have Henry, Feeney and now Taylor who can play on the right wing, and also when Racon gets fit can also play out wide.Millwall are confident that Mkandawire and Racon will both be fit for the start of pre-season training. This will be provide Abdou, Wright and Trotter. No need to sign any CMs unless neither player can prove their fitness.

He's one of the best fullbacks in the league... and that is why he won't be leaving for an inferior team!"Inferior team" ! When was the last time Brentford played any higher than the 3rd tier!Brentford would be a far more attractive option over any of those teams, and I'm a Charlton fan! The style of football they play is amongst the best I saw in the division last season and we played them 3 times in total! Outplayed us everytime but we managed to nick a couple of goals and hang on! Big promotion prospects this year!

Ipswich to sign James Coppinger from Doncaster(7)(6)Rubbish. Moving to Peterborough. Saw him outside London road today so expect p'boro to unveil him within the next 3 daysMakes sense. Quality player.Cheers, this has reminded of last summer ;) COYBYour so wrong mate coppinger was wanted last year by ipswich but not now get your fact straightI'm not a Peterborough fan but I've heard a lot about their 'youth' ethos they are supposedly adopting. Can't see them going for someone as old as Coppinger.Ipswich ruled out a move for Coppinger after we played them on the last day of last season, so that one aint happening. I think he will end up at a high Championship club or will show his loyalty and stay put.Im sure you saw coppinger outside london road :L

Swindon town are to sign Luke Varney, Ashley westwood and Simon Church before the end of the day(5)(20)Church is worth 2 million + so not a hope in hell of Swindon signing himHaha heard Messi and ronaldos agents were seen at swindon too! Di Canio is the only big name striker you will ever seeChurch is championship player wont go lower and Varney will sign for wiganWhere do you get all of these bad rumoursHandbags -just go and worry about your own club and be prepared for STFC to hit the gorund running as we are going to surprise teams this season and idiots like you with comments about Di Canio being the only striker.HOT OFF THE PRESS: barcelona to become a feeder club for swindon town! i know this is a rumour site but some swindon fans need a bit of a reality check.HOT OFF THE PRESS idiot: Just because someone quotes Swindon doesn't necessarily mean it was a Swindon fan who quoted it. There are a lot of jealous fans on here.

Now get your facts right or just comment on your own club (assuming your club is worth a mention)We don't have crap players at this clubI have news for you..A lot of these rumours concerning Siwndon don't come from Swindon fans, A lot of them come from fans from clubs such as Oxford on a wind up, It is understandable though...they have nothing to of any importance going on at their 3 sided library for them to get involved with. A lot of them are also secret Swindon fans and can't help but show it with their obsession with us. If you look at the Swindon press and the Swindon Forums you will see that these players are not mentioned at's easy to post something and then come back on and make a statement such as you have....crawl back under your rock and wait for some more news from your own club....I'm sure some more of your players will be leaving soon.All signed up now are they? Good boys

Bury to sign Swindon striker Kerrouche on a free transfer(10)(5)Do you want me to drive him over to you free of charge? Get him off the wage bill please!!He better be goodHe does have some talent, can be very good from set pieces (especially from around the edge of the box), But he is so minute he will play a great pass to set someone up, the next he will ghost past a player as if he's not there....then for the next 80 minutes you may as well have only 10 players on the park!! He is very lazy and worse still he has a horrible disposition!! He is cocky and arrogant (Which I have personally witnessed). The sooner he is gone the really would be doing everyone connected to Swindon a favour!Is this kerrouche or Di Canio your talking about?Kerrouche is on a 20 a day ciggy diet! Do one!

Manchester Utd have had a £25 million bid rejected for Tottenham starlet Luka Modric and therefore will not return with another bid.

Swansea have approached ex Barcelona and Denmark legend Michael Laudrup about the vacant managerial position at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea have also beaten Liverpool to the signing of Icelandic Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson for a fee of £6.8 million. This will be confirmed in the next few days along with Laudrup.

Norwich will sign Leeds contract rebel Robert Snodgrass for a fee of £4.7 million. Norwich have also expressed interest in Birmingham duo Curtis Davies and Chris Burke.

Youssuf Mulumbu and Jonas Olsson will leave West Brom this season as they want to work with an experienced manager and have respect for Steve Clarke, but will leave for Tottenham and Stoke City respectively(11)(25)Moyes is very keen to talk with olson before he makes any move, not saying a deal is in place !To right 25mil rejected as spurs rejected a 40mil offer from Chelski few months ago but levy has stated he will listen to offers around 42mil plusYou talk st. Gylfi already came out and said the deal for him to go to Swansea is off and he will not go thereJonas Olsson wouldn't join Stoke City after the eye-gauge from Crouch during last seasonSig will go with rodgers, not swansea, unfortunately.Modric a starlet ?4.7m for a player who has 1 year left on his contract, and has yet to play in the premier league, is ridiculous.

3-3.5m is more like the necessary feeGylfi did not CONFIRM that his deal was off. He said it is more than unlikely due to the uncertainty surrounding the club. Now with the likes of Laudrup, Bergkamp and Desailly all being linked with the club who are all inspirational figures wherever you are from, the likelyhood of him signing for the Swans had increased4.7mil for snodgrass with 6 months left on his contract"Jonas Olsson wouldn't join Stoke City after the eye-gauge from Crouch during last season" I'd love to know how you are so aware of a players personal feelings? If every player who'd ever been fouled didn't move to that club no transfers would happen. No put your dummy back in and go to bed.Im sorry but are you having a laugh 42 mill plus for modric, many did he score and assist last couple of seasons.not many is the answer.i dont even support any of the teams linked with him so i dont really care but come on who would pay that for him.2m for SnoddyWhy would Olsson make the step down to join Stoke? Also he's got a good left foot and like to come forward and play the ball, ON THE FLOOR. Therefore not suited for StokeOlson would not go to stoke as he said that he want to go to a big club and considering west brom finished above stoke last season, I don't think so...West Brom actually beat Stoke for the first time since about 1805 and suddenly they're a big club :-) Don't think it would take too much tempting IF Stoke want him.It has been confirmed that Jonas Olsson will be staying at west bromwich albion. he will sign a new 3 year contract once the european championships are finished. also Mulumbu and Odemwingie will stay and see what Steve Clarke has to offer. if they are unhappy then they will both leave in JanuaryCan see West Brom going down next seasonOlson is a poor player - should have been sent off against us last year for kicking Vaughan in the face. He also caught the ball like Michael Jordan when we were through on goal. Gash player but probably perfect for Stoke.If your talking about the Vaughan from Norwich it was Gabriel tamas who elbowed himOlly is a beast!!

He won't be going to Stokers cause he's said he wants to compete for do that he'll have to join a better team than Stoke in the prem or move away from the EPL which I personally can't see him doing!Where is all this money gona come frm 4 players? whn you couldnt afford 2 pay blues 2-million compo 4 Chris Hughton?Chopper Ollson 2 Stoke.He simply wouldn't get in the Stoke side unless Huth was to leaveGet your facts right pal, Albion pulled out of the Hughton deal because they were told its Hughton or Foster, not both

Former player Jason Gavin is to resign at Bradford City to help cover for the loss of Luke Oliver who is set to sign for Wycombe.(1)(4)Biggest joke of the season, gavin was woeful last time thats why we got ridWe have never Jason Gavin at Bradford before. It is the case that Oliver is looking to return South thoughGood luck bully, thats all i can say, we should of kept him for cover for versatility, least he will save fuel for travelling less miles for trainingIf Jason Gavin re-signs for City I'm sending my season ticket back to the club after using it to wipe my backside!Gavin did play for City between 2003-05. He was shocking. Are you too young to remember?No - I've been following city for a lot of years - He obviously made an impression which says it all! Thanks for the update

Derby County News Update

Michael Jacobs will be joing derby after he confessed to Local Papers/people that he will be leaving for derby.

Krystian Pearce is transfer listed at 135k derby have offered 120k

Derby have offered a contract to Karleigh Osbourne who has also recieved contracts from Charlton and Nottingham Forest

Paul dixon will unlikely be signing for the rams after his contract demands proofed to much for what we would offer him
so he will be poised to sign for Bristol city should no-one else make contact.

Therefore derby have stepped up their chase on Joe mattock who is free after his release from west brom
but derby face competiton from Brighton/Sheffield wednesday who are keen on him.

Targets who will be bidded for later on are

Daniel Powell
Fegor Ogude
Andrew tutte
Ashley Westwood
Johnny Russell
Will GriggTrials will be on as normal to the Public but derby have given 9 youngsters trials after their release from clubs.
5 of them used to apply their trade in france one being well known Striker Yannis Tafer after his release from OL
Frank Nouble and Nigel Hasselbienk have also been offered trials.

As far as Transfers going out

Steve davies and James Bailey are the the subject of a 2.5 million bid made by Burnley after the jay rod deal has gone
through.They will replace the missing Jay rod and Dean Marney.

Coventry and Bristol City have enquired about Miles Addison

Watford,Sheffield Wednesday and Dundee united have Enquired about Striker Chris Maguire.The First two had bids Rejected.

Nigel wants to use chris + cash to get a decent striker with his main focus towards Johnny Russell.Especially with them
interested in chris.

Derby county will not be buying anyone over the age of 25 but might get a old free transfer for experience.As derby still want
keep their policy of bringing in Youth Players with Will Hughes to play cover for Hendrick and Bryson.I will give another update on Monday when i heard Derby will approach Mk dons about Daniel powell which i have been told by people involed
that Ben davies will be involed.If that Fails They will try getting Jon Taylor.As Shrewsbury want ben davies.

Please Reply if you have any Information.

Thank you(6)(12)Are you the same sad case, who used to go on and on about southampton signing everyone last year , but only got it right about 2% of the time. If so, i cant wait for the school holidays to finishAnother one of the French players offered a trial is midfielder Thomas Pechart who has been released by MarseilleWhat is it with derby fans think there signing the world saying what a big club they are but apparently get out bid by city for Dixon makes me laughYes dcfcHow does that say we are signing everyone i only count 8 players there.
They are the same eight players that derby fans have been mentioning on here not like evry other club saying they are signing someone different every weekDerby are only looking to sell bailey maguire davies Addison and croft and buy 1 striker 1 winger and 1 centre back. also if they could afford dixons wages but Bristol city look in a better position. As a derby fan I realise we have a great history and facilities etc but money talks and so if bristol city offer more money why would you go derby.Mattock has gone to SWFCBecause derby has a better chance of getting promoted and Bristol look like they will be fighting to stay in the championshipJoe mattock has already signed for Sheffield Wednesday....

Leicester have set Burnley Striker Charlie Austin has the main target to play up front with Nugent and Vardy(4)(15)Jermaine beckford?No chance with Austin mateI wouldn't even swap Austin for that pile of crap.Austin was top striker last season behind Jay Rodriguez, now Jay has gone we dont need to get rid of him too. Austin wont be going anywhere

Alex cisak 99% certain to leave boundary park this summer. The news come's after oldham back up keeper dean bouzanis signed a new 12 month deal previously stating he wanted first team football(2)(2)We will sell Cisak as we always sell players and the money keeps the club going. AQs for Bouzanis he was going to sign anyway so another stupid comment.

rather than just write comments why not be a Oldham fan or even better give Dickov a phone and speak to him.

I heard that Leon Clark has been for a medical today down at Bradford City take it or leave it he been told(6)(11)Feel sorry for Bradford then. What a really poor attitude this man has. Lazy as they come, Argumentive and cocky. From the time he told Mick Mcarthy who he had better buy all the way to his argument with Paolo Di Canio he has been a disruptive force in the dressing room and looks for trouble. Don't expect much effort in training once the initial 'honeymoon' period is over.Can't see that happeningAs a BCFC board member I can tell you there is no truth in this oneA 'BCFC board member'? The only 'board member' you are is on the official message board....!

Southampton FC are in discussions with Liverpool to sign Sebastian Coates in a season long loan deal. Also expect the Saints to confirm the signing of Jay Rodriguez to be confirmed on the Saints website within the next 72 hours. News also of a 3 year £20k contract offer for Danny Guthrie to break in the press soon.(11)(13)To indicate you would have a clue as to terms that Saints would offer to a player makes your post unbelievable-and your "news" about Rodriguez is at least 24hrs old!

Jordan Rhodes to Man Utd for 3.2mill and then to be loaned out. This is coming from htfc press team. Have you heard this ed?(5)(36)3.2mil plzzzzzzzzz we have turned down nearer 6mil already.He stated before the play-offs that he is staying with his current club if they got promoted, surely he won't go against his word?3.2 million, when everybody else is being quoted 8 million. Jog on son and make something else upHe ain't worth 3M at present let alone 8M, get real, he is still just a player who scored lots of goals at Div 1 level, he did nothing at Ipswich before he joined Huddersfield, so he will have to prove his worth at championship level before anyone in premier is going to shell out anything over 5M You canj ask what you like but no one is going to pay 8M at this stage.

Peterborough to sign Michael Owen and Craig Mackail Smith shortly.(3)(32)Dream onHAHA dont make me laugh. Owen is on about 50k a week. more than twice the limit for the championship

LJHSCMS is ste, Brighton fans will tell you, they got mugged when you sold himMichael owen to oldWell we have huntingdon racecourse down the road so that will sort Owens racing fix haha. As for the CMS is ste. No he isnt. Brighton play awful football kicking lumps out of players, which doesnt accomendate a pacy striker so its no wonder his scoring record is so badMacca doesnt suit brightons silly "dont we look special" style of football, you can pass the ball yes, but as of getting it to macca it is outwide, or hive it to him infront of the defence for him to get through, or over the top. Only way.


08 Jun 2012 11:14:00
All those suggesting Paul Hayes and Eunan O'Kane to Swindon can rest assured its all BS! Approaches were never made and will not be made.

charlton are interested in bennett from Norwich. you heard it here first(3)(15)Why would he leave Norwich for the Championship?If benno goes down a league he will come home to BrightonMajor lie! Why would he go from Championship to Prem, then back to Champioship? And they wouldn't sell him for less than what they bought him for!Which Bennet are you talking about? Not that it matters as neither are for sale. Barnett on the other hand is out of his depth and will more than likely move on. Much more realistic for Charlton.Which one? doesn't really matter, you've no chance of signing either.You havnt
got the money to buy any bennett we paid 1.5 million for elliott 3million plus for ryan elliott would cost now 3 miilion ryan would cost you about 5 million dream on honeyYou must mean Albert BennettIm a charlton fan and i agree we wont sign these players, but we have mire money the norwich FACT!Elliot Bennett to Charlton!! Ha ha I've never heard so much rubbish, they can't afford his boot laces. He stepped up a couple of levels moving from Brighton to Norwich, why would he want to drop back down two or three to go to Charlton?? Smell the coffee!Like a previous posters says, I think you mean Barnett not Bennett

Stockport County wanted list.

Keepers: Lewis King, Owain Von Williams

Defenders: Gian Luca Havern, James Tunnicliffe

All Norwich News:
Chris Hughton has brought with him Colin Calderwood, Paul Trollop and Ewan Chester with him in a £2m compensation package. They will also bring with him goalkeeper coach Dave Watson to work with promising keepers Jed Steer and Declan Rudd. Grant Holt will have a meeting with Hughton and it is believed he is excited about Hughton's reign. Hughton said in his press conference that he knew a lot about Grant and he was very keen to keep him at the club. It is believed that he will be offered a new contract to make him highest played player once again. As for transfers it looks extremely likely that Birmingham want to sell their prize assets to raise funds for the new manager. Hughton will go back and sign Curtis Davies and young talented Nathan Redmond for a combined £6m+Chris Martin. Hughton knows the better players in the championship so will hope to bring in a few of them and a few that the club have requested. Targets are: Zaha, Clyne, Naughton, Pacheco, Lansbury, Snodgrass, Powell and others. This is from a very close source to David McNally so expect a fair few of these to be signed up by our new manager. Naughton, Lansbury, Pacheco are all wanted by the club so Hughton's first task will be to snap them up as well as his own targets as quickly as possible.(15)(17)If you think that norwich are going to cherry pick our best players for peanuts you had better think again farmboy.Hope so!:DBirmingham need to sell, bottom line is that clubs will offer least amount to secure transfers, so don't bet on Birmingham holding out for bigger money and risk losing a sale,. they will almost certainly be selling a few over transfer window.Dave Watson is not going anywhereIsn't Powell off to united?


08 Jun 2012 10:50:08
Paul Jewell is due to have talks with 3 East European central defenders in the next week or so. Hungarians Debreceni (from Honved) and Szabo (from Paksi SF) would cost minimal amounts and could form a good partnership for years to come as they're both only in their early 20s. If either of these don't sign he'll look at Klein, the man-mountain Czech central defender currently playing at Ferencvaros, who may cost more but brings more experience. COYB(3)(2)Wot a load of bs


08 Jun 2012 10:30:11
Anyone heard anymore on Sigurdarson? If Stale could get him in I would be optimistic for next season!(2)(8)He had verbally agreed a 6.8m move to swansea, but that was before Rodgers went to Liverpool. Rodgers has stated he is keen on bringing him to Liverpool, as the main reason he signed for swansea was because of Brendan Rodgers, just like when he signed him for Reading. source BBC websiteHe's talking about Bjorn S not Gylffi S!


08 Jun 2012 10:28:58
Lee Cook to sign for Charlton after a successful loan and subsequently being released by QPR providing cover in LM for injury prone Jackson who will be preferred in a CM role next season.(6)(1)Cook is one of the best crosser's of the ball outside the PL but fitness is an issueWhen he was with us he and Wiggins had a great understanding down the left flank, Jackson is short of pace and often looks to cut into a CM role, I also think we need a young LM with lots of energy whats happening with the development of Evina? I know he is a LB but has played LM!


08 Jun 2012 10:26:28
Reading have ended there interest in Nottingham Forest Defender Chris Gunter, Reading had a £2m bid rejected last week as Forest want a lot more but Reading don't value the Wales international higher than £2m(9)(5)Could be true this, heard we may switch our attention to Carl Jenkinson, hope its not true!

Southamptons possible in; Jack butland 3.5m, Nathan clyne 3.5m, matthew upsin free, Curtis davis 3m, matt Jarvis 4m, Tom ince 3m, Danny guthrie free, Nigel Reo-Coker free and jay rodriguez 7m gary hooper 7m not all these will happen but these are our targets Southampton possible outs; Barnard 400k, Holmes 140k, Do Pardo 1.2m and expect to see sum youngster leave on loan(11)(21)Apologies to all supporters, at all clubs-this guy needs to learn to spell and also get to know what he is talking about. He has no idea who Saints are after-apart from Rodriguez-and all the targets are from press speculation. The level of this "rumour" can be summed up by the nonsense about Holmes-he has gone some while ago on a free to PNE.
Be glad when the kids are back at school.Jarvis for 4M?? PMSLHow much money do you think you have?Concidering were owned by a rich family....millions. and we just got promoted to the prem....millions Looks like Curtis Davies will follow Hughton to Norwich who are also rumoured to be interested in Guthrie. Could be a bit of a battle for his signature, but ties with Hughton could play a big part in the outcome.Quite a bit considering we're bidding for 7million quid players, a billionaires estate and 90 million from Premier league. Sounds quite a bit to me! {Ed001's Note - you don't get 90m from the Premier League. That so called 90m is the amount of TV money, plus prize money for finishing bottom and the parachute payments you would receive, if you were to get relegated. So you will get at least 90m, but it is over a number of years!}Once again fans of other clubs cluelessly weighing about saints. Wise up. We have very wealthy owners. We are not going to spend like City or Chelsea but we have a long term vision and the capability to spend what is needed. We have a shrewd Manager and even shrewder chairman but this kind of expenditure is by no means beyond us.

Big breaking news to come out of Molinuex in the next 48hrs. Wolves are to appoint former boss Glenn Hoddle as there new Director of Football. I'm hearing that Hoddle is looking to move his Spanish Football Academy over to England and sees Compton Park as the ideal site. He has apparently approached Wolves about siteing the Academy there and taking on the D of F role without a wage involved. Steve Morgan is said to be very keen on the idea although he was not around when Hoddle bought the club to it's knees 6 years ago. This will also show how the role of Jez Moxey is becoming less and less influential as he is said to be totally against the idea. This will be announced in the next 2/3 days.(4)(20)The funding for the GHA in Spain dried up a while back and then ended up financially crippling the Spanish club he 'partnered' with. He's been dabbling with Arabia and South Africa, but is effectively being used by the locals as a 'name' to draw in punters to their soccer schools. He's been hawking his academy around various clubs trying get them bankroll it since last year, with no takers.It's already in England?1 thing i can say about starts in f n end in off the bloke wouldnt make to the front door typical albion fanMore importantly it looks as if Zeli Ishmail is attracting interest from some of the bigger clubs and only a year left on his current contract.
Hoddles academy venture has not been a particular successBigger clubs whu fulham n qpr ? agent talk

Leicester City are set to move for Burnley hitman Charlie Austin with a 2M bid likely in next few days(3)(21)Total crap.
1 - No chance we sell another striker
2 - No chance we settle for about same as we paid / even less
3 - No chance we accept St Ledger, we didn't want him when at PrestonBut he doesn't come from Hull or Man U! Meaning Pearson is probably not interested.With Burnley rejecting the bid minutes later2m wouldnt get you Charlies left toe.No chance, Double it then maybe. UTCBambas and Mills leaving Leicester. No chance St.Ledger will also be departing

I am hearing that the Stockport Manager is hoping to bring in one of his former signings to Edgeley Park. Paul Turnbull has been rumoured quite often in the past, but sources tell me he wants to sign Tom Pope, his first signing when the boss of Port Vale. I also hear that Oldham, Macclesfield and Rochdale also interested in Tom.(3)(6)Paul would be a fantastic signing for county as he is a stockport lad through and throughDon't think Oldham will want him.Where do you get this bull from about tom pope,LET ME MAKE IT SIMPLE FOR YOU,NOT REPORTS FROM ANY OF THE PAPERS,THIS INFO HAS COME OF THE OF VALE WEBB SITE,TOM POPE HAS SIGNED A 12MONTH CONTRACT

CHRIS THESE PEOPLE ON HERE WANT SHOOTING "GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT GUYS"I'm a vale fan and no way Tom pope is good enough for any of those teams and he's already agreed a contract at vale


08 Jun 2012 09:19:17
I have it on very good authority that Paul Lamberts first signing will be Russell Martin from his old club Norwich. He has taken Russell with him wherever he has gone, and sees him as the perfect captain to cover for Petrov.

Source: Russell Martins uncle(5)(25)He hasnt taken him everywhere hes been, he signed him for the first time at Norwich from Peterboro, a club he has never managed.He hasn't though has heRuss Martin's uncle lives next to me in Sussex! Just phoned to ask. 100% untrue said russ loved Norwich.He wants a right back to cover for a central midfielder?10m and you can have him lolWhat are you on about? He plays right back/centre back, not defensive midfield! And it's a laughable source.No he wontTaken him everywere? Wow your stupid, so Lambert managed peterbrough? No Russell will be staying. Grant holt can leaVe now no point of him being here. If rumours about six mil for him are true I would drive him to that club willing to pay 6 mil for a player who will be 32 this season.Just signed a new contract in the last hour. On official Norwich website. Thats this rumour done.He's signed a new 3 year deal at Norwich did his uncle tell you that. On official site.Russell martin has signed a contract to 2015

source:ncfc websiteHe hasnt taken him wherever he has gone he signed him from Peterborough in his 2nd season with Norwich
And Lambert was from ColchesterNice info Uncle Martin - he signed a new 3yr contract with Norwich today (08/06/12)He just signed a new contract at Norwich to stay until 2015 so utter BS

And he did it on the same day this was posted just to show wrong it isRussell Martin has just signed a new three year contract with Norwich and stated that his family are well settled and love it in Norfolk. So much for this rumour. {Ed015's Note - Some more good news for Norwich fans.}Hes just signed a new contract, so thats a load of bullLooks unlikely as he just signed a new 3 year dealRiss Martin has just signed a new 3 year contract extension with Norwich, doubt that is going to happen.He's just signed a 3 year deal...I have it on very, very good authority that he's just signed a new contract to keep him with us until 2015. Source: Official website (the truth).Need cover for Petrov? Try signing a centre midfielder then...Shame he's just signed a 3 year deal then......Russell Martin has just signed a new 3 year contract with NCFC. Source dear. It was just officially confirmed he signed a three year deal with Norwich TODAY! Think your very good authority maybe isn't so good after all!No because Russell Martin literally just signed a new contract he's "delighted" with. Your source is wrongWell that's rubbish because Russell Martin plays a a RB/CB and Petrov is a holding midfielder. If he is going (which i doubt Norwich and Hughton will allow because there is no other EPL standard RB in the squad) then it wouldn't be for coverTotal bs. Russ has just signed a 3 year contract..i dont really think you know his uncle.jog on small childWrong on both counts:

1) Martin just signed new 3 year contract at Norwich, so I guess that "potential" move is scuppered :)

2) Martin came from Peterborough, so therefore he could not have been taken along by Lambert from Colchester!

Note to Author: must do better and do homework first.To give you a 100% truthful answer, russ martin has today signed a new 3-year deal keeping him at the club until 2015. he is very committed to ncfc and is a fan favourite

source: bbc sportHe'll pay a handsome price as Russell Martin has just signed a new 3 year deal with Norwich. OTBC!I just had a word with russ martins nan and she said the only place he's going is down the chippy for her tea. He's staying put.

new norwich manager chris hughton looking at bringing
in six new players and trying to get holt to stay will be given 20 million to spent

transfer targets are
curtis davies and chris burke from birmingham for 5m
michu vallecano 2.5m good player
matthew briggs fulham 1.5m naughton replacment
leon best newcastle 2m maybe holt replacment
scott sinclair swansea 4.5m(15)(20)No chance of getting them for those prices.Hang on a minute Where is this money you are spending coming from? your ten million in doubt and didn't get much for Lambert the most Hughton is going to be able to spend is 10-12 million at the most and Michu will not be going to Norwich infact this is who you would like to see come to the club they arn't realistic targets and Michu is rated at 4 million and apparently every club wants him :LHughton won't get 20 million to spend. I'd bet my kidney on it.Would love Scott Sinclair!A couple of these look pretty likely, but you're valuations are a bit low, doubt swansea would let sinclair go for thatMatty Briggs might go to you on loan - but will not be sold for peanuts - will challenge Riise for first team place this seasonRedmondNo way is Jol going to let Briggs go, stupid transfer rumourWe won't get Sinclair we'll get RedmondI'm hoping one of the posters is heading for a hospital for that kidney transplant. NCFC CEO David Mcnally has stated Hughton will have the most financial freedom in the clubs history. last season Lambert spent 15M... so 20M is very, very likely.Sinclair would never go to norwich there rubbish!Matthew Briggs will only leave Fulham on loan, if it wasn't for John Arne Riise's superb form in the second half of the season he would have got more time on the field. He's one of our biggest prospects.

Scott Sinclair would cost more than 4.5m, he's young, English and an attacking player. He will cost 7m MINIMUM.Sinclair looks unlikely for 4.5. think Norwich would spend a max on 5.5 on him, and if that didn't work out they would put the money towards Snoddy from Leeds. seeing as he is on his last year of contract, and wants to come, 4.5 would be the max cost for him.

Albion to appoint Steve Clarke today... Great appointment! Boing Boing!(19)(13)It has now been confirmed officially that Clarke has got the job,I know he is probably not the fans choice but you can trust he will get the full backing of ALL the fans,this you can guarentee ,it is now time for the chairman to give Steve Clarke his FULL backig also in the guise of loosening the purse strings to allow the new man to move the club on.
Good luck steve, ithink you are going to need bucket loads with likes of Peace looking over your shouder.

Blackpool are already in talks to replace wonga as sponsors with numerous companies.
one of the companies is a french company called Paris National Enterprises.
If the deal does go ahead this will
outrage seaside supporters.
The first 3 initials spell PNE.
which is Blackpool rivals Preston North
Although the deal could net Blackpool
£600k per year in a 3 year contract(16)(15)Hilarious!Prob not true, but would love it to see PNE on the lashers shirts lolThat's hilarious! Completely made up, but very funny. As a Preston fan I expect that this rumour was posted by one of my fellow fans just to wind up the Blackpool supporters!Spose when youre only pullin in 6k crowds youll need the extra cash. That's if Karl and the latvian havent put it as a down payment on a holiday villa. Like annoying little dogs tryin to hump our legs...Blackpool fans don't particuly care who is sponsering us as long as they are putting money into the club, anyway the Wonga deal is good for another season.Had a season ticket last season will not watch the dross that westley produced ever again , the signings are average players , why has he suddenly decided bailey wright is any good the man id a foolPeter Kay eat your heart out! I laughed so hard my head nearly fell off.Why would anyone be interested in this...6k crowds even though we've already sold 9.5k season tickets? OK...PNE the bigger clubLeague 1 all needs sayingPne crap. 6K crowds? after the corner stand completion it's 17,500. get your facts right before posting st nobber.9800 season tickets sold. more than PNE, T'rovers, Notlob, Bumley etc and not the cheapest either......bought mine and my lads yesterday 615 in total......Problem with that is the company would be called " Entreprise National de Paris "Blackpool have only sold 9,000 season tickets because if fans bought them when they were 1 game away from the Premier league they would get a Premier league season ticket for the price of a Championship ticket. 9,000 season tickets is actually a very poor showing in this context. Very poor indeed. Nearly 6,000 sold in League One however, is excellent.9000 tickets so what if its 900 look are last few seasons most teams are jelous as hell who cares how many come through the gates,bradford get more than most teams out side the prem and look at their position.Theres a big differemce between preston,bradford and Blackpool, regardless of the amount of fans.
One of the teams is a recent premier league team thats not far off being back there. The other two are teams that were once of a decent standard but now ply their trade in the lower leagues dreaming of years gone by.I am sure sad old Preston fans would love to see their club initials on shirts playing quality football and challenging for a place in the Premiership . Dream on you sad PNE losersHaha, i'm just waiting for the mass exodus of blackpool players realising they ain't all that, and for the inevitable nose dive down the league. then we'll see how many loyal bpool fans there are. not many i'm guessing.

Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion have allegedly signed former Manchester United keeper Tomasz Kuszczak on a three-year deal, subject to a medical.

The 30-year-old was a free agent having been released by United after five years at the club.

The Poland international spent the second half of last season on-loan at Watford, after finding himself fourth in the Old Trafford pecking order behind David De Gea, Anders Lindergaard and Ben Amos.

Fellow Championship side Ipswich were also thought to be interested in the former West Brom stopper, however Kuszczak has allegedly been sighted at The Seagulls’ Amex Stadium in the past few weeks.

It’s believed he was sneaked into the ground by club officials last Friday for contract negotiations, and will be receiving a medical within the next few days with an announcement from the club expected soon.

The south-coast outfit were also favourites to sign defender Joe Mattock.

The 22-year old impressed on his loan spell from West Brom in the second half of the season, however he now looks set to join Sheffield Wednesday.

The club have also allegedly been in talks with Millwall’s highly sought after Liam Trotter as a replacement for Alan Navarro in the centre of midfield.

Boss Gus Poyet is also belived to be tracking former Manchester City winger Gai Assulin and Alan Judge of League One Notts County.(17)(17)No he isnt, if he was to stay in championship it will be with watford but he will most likley be going back to west brom as is not going thereGus is still in Uruguay, and i honestly think he would be setting his sights a little higher than Kuszczak. Ok, he was at United and a decent keeper in the past, but he didnt exactly set the the world alight when at Watford - seemed to be of a similar 'clown' keeper as Brezovan and Ankergren. Knowing Gus, he would prefer a younger keeper to take us forward, not one for a couple of years.
Also - Liam Trotter, seriously. Whoever is posting this nonsense needs to get real - i am an ardent Brighton fan, but Trotters expectations will be higher than us.
Assulin - sorry, didnt impress me (and many others) when he was here. The one main thing we lacked last season was strength all over the park - why go for another lightweight??
So many rumours, none of which will come to fruition until Gus is back. I know there are other forms of communication, but he is hands-on and wouldnt agree to anything until he has met the players. Nothing will happen for a week, as he has stated himself in the Argus this week.Brighton fans get it into your head liam trotter is not going to your club he is staying at millwallJust waiting for Brighton fans to tell us he is the best stopper in the league LOOOOL.None of this is true, he is signing for ITFC reliable sourcesHahah. Kuszczak is in talks with Mainz, and west brom why would he EVER choose brighton over them?Trotter wont go to brighton! hes happy where he is with a captaincy when robbos not there for us!Brighton do not kid yourselves, Kuszczak is was class whilst at Watford and can do better than Brighton. You have absolutely no chance of signing him...Trotter moving to brighton? really? firstly he is gonna cost atleast 1.5 mill maybe more, if anything he is likely to go to a prem side! im not even a millwall fan but dont beleive a word you've just said!Brighton have no chance of getting judge.Kuszczak was definitely at Brighton. 100% reliable source.this is correct (the kuszczak bit). He is very close to signing for Brighton (not watford, Mainz, west or any other clubs you have made up). Oh, and he is a very good keeper, just what Brighton need.Funny how he was 100% due to sign in the next 24 hours...That's funny as it's soon announced that he is to make a return to his former club west bromTrotter may well warm a premiership clubs bench before joining another championship club.But as for Kuszczak and Judge (not convinced about Judge) why would,nt they be interested in a club,who are obviously making efforts to climb the tables and not settle for mid-table mediocracy.ANY team with achievable ambitions is attractive to good players,and thats us.^ That's what almost every club thinks. Brighton aren't some special "above the rest" team.Trotter is worth 6millionNo trueNo way would trotter move to Brighton were better than you.
1 season in championship doesn't make you establish sideI didn't say he was 100% certain to join Brighton, I said he was 100% definitely seen at Brighton.

Brighton looking at Adrian Cieslewics from Wrexham! He's a rapid winger and only 21. Got bags of potential. Apparently joining up with Brighton from pre-season on trial. Lots of League 1 and 2 teams also expressing an interest but Adrian is only really interested in a move to the Championship otherwise he's happy to continue his development in Wales.

Source: I'm good friends with his brother.(10)(9)Was very good in the fa cup games against us but a lack of final delivery will mean he's never going to be a championship playerI bet you are!Good signing although he might have to start in the development squadI was very impressed when I saw him play against Brighton in the cup would be very happy if he signedApparently Brighton spoke to a few players after the cup games to say that they were really impressed and kept tabs on them for the rest of the season.

No promises have been made to Adrian and he is only going to train with Brighton for a couple of weeks during pre-season. No talk of even signing yet, just was suggested it would do him good to train with them for a bit.

Other clubs have been to watch him but no further contact with either him or Wrexham yet.

Liverpool have today asked Huddersfields permission to speak to Jordan Rhodes.(18)(33)Can see for the next few months it's going to be Brendan "Kiddy in a sweet shop" Rodgers being linked with every footballer under the sun to join his "project"...still think he's bitten off more than he can chew...he didn't revolutionise Swansea and bring in that style of play....Martinez did..Rodgers just carried it on if truth be known...let's see him introduce it at LiverpoolTotal rubbish. They have bigger targets on the go.Rhodes staying put! dont have to sell and contracted to 2015That's rubbish Jordan Rhodes is a town player and still be one at the start of the seasonNot much of a step up really! Liverpool are on a downward spiral.Paulo Sousa set it all up at Swansea along with Martinez, Sousa was responsible for them playing 4-3-3 and Rodgers carried this on. Rodgers struggled to introduce this formation to Watford & Reding...hence him failing and leaving!From Huddersfield to Liverpool a step down, good one!


08 Jun 2012 07:39:05
steve clarke to be appointed west brom manager,what a joke.can you see the likes of mulumbu,po,olson signing new deals for this bloke.what a joke peace why o why not pay the 2m to birmingham for be outdone by a team of norwich citys calibre is a joke,still youve sold your season tickets for the year.i hope i eat humble pie at the end of next season but i carnt see it.Depressed bagggie fan {Ed013's Note - Steve is a good coach and will prove you wrong}(16)(7)As a Villa fan I can only sympathise with any team getting a manager the fans don't want. Still, people didn't give Pardew much hope did theyTeam of Norwich City's calibre....... they sell out every week, kept their support in the lower leagues and play good football, not that boring stuff that the baggies play.THere is a differance between manager and a coach ,after being a number 2 for 15 years amid table premiership club is not the place to take on your first job.imho, jeremiah scrooge as once again shafted the fans,somehow mr ed i cannot see your prediction of Clarke doing ok coming true ,i hope he proves me wrong but i dont think he will get alot of backing both financially or personal from peace to actually move the club forward. {Ed013's Note - Only time will tell mate, I have faith in him. Remember who he worked with}It's Albion fans like you that really embarrass me, give the bloke a chance, he's a fantastic coach and every manager needs to start somewhere... If those players don't want to play for us let em goI bet you have never seen the Baggies play except for the nanoseconds they show on motd, and as for your comments on Norwich you are probably one of the glory hunters who hang on to their coat tails from success in league 1 and the championship and could n,t even find your ae let alone carrow road before Norwich had any success.FFS Steve Clarke is a well respected coach and I welcome him as opposed to the usual list of serial failures, Bruce, Curbishley, Keane etc. Any player who wants to go can, who the hell do they think they are? Certainly not superstars that's for sure. That is one pathetic post fella, maybe you'd prefer to be a Dingle!A team of Norwich's calibre how many season ticket holders do you have?
Looking forward to crushing you again this coming season.I'd agree with above good coaches dont always make good managers.One of your ex managers you got rid of is currently a FA Cup and champions league winner who'd have thought that so maybe give Clarke a chance.Nah hel be alrite man, no where bear as bad as mcliesh and if they wana go let em, lambert do no better with that crock he got there, still be top team in mids come end of season, ;)Roberto di Matteo anybody. Who would have given him a chance before the Chelsea job and look at him now.
Are you saying that Hughton would definately have been a success and Clarke will definately fail?You are probably one of the fans who will support the club right down to the championship which is where the club is headed with a struggling season in the offing with once again very little financial help coming from the chairman and the usual mix of journeyman and one,s for the future coming in to the club,I just hope that Peace does at least have the good sense to sign Ben Foster otherwise next season could be baptism of fire for Clarke.NOT at our club he dont. DISASTER.Jose Mourinho quote: “If he had the chance to manage a club, even a big club like Chelsea, he would be ready for that. He is that good. He is an intelligent guy and always looking to improve. He is very open to co-operation and learning. He has a good relationship with the players, knows how to handle them. I think he is much, much better than many managers who are in charge of teams at the moment.”

I think the Special One knows a lot more than us mere mortals. Get behind him.

AND FOR GODS SAKE IT'S HUGHTON NOT HOUGHTON!!!Some wba fans make me laugh clarke will do a awsome job and will keep playing the football the right way and will get good players you all keep going on about paying the 2m for c.m but what as he done nothing so i would be happy if i was you but you cant cuz you think that your better than you areWhat do you mean outdone by a team of norwich citys calibre, we are better than west brom, such a bigger club, fan base more passionate, just think youve outplayed your premiership stay as your just an average championship club and thats all you are !!Let's get it straight our fan base is similar to Norwich. We beat you once last season and finished higher than you. We played more attractive football than you did, you played direct football with two donkeys up front like you didJust goes to show how much of these muppets are arm chair fans Clarke doesn't get the players its ashworth who if people remember he found mulumbu odemwingie was the main player in getting long to the club Clarke is a quality coach everybody going on about hughton tell me what has he done cudnt get blues out of the championship stevie clarkes barmy armyTo the Norwich fan.. you lump it up to Holt! Have you not got eyes, the albions passing game is one of the best around..Last time i looked England was a democracy with freedom of speech so just because you dont agree with someone who thinks that Clarkes appointment is not the correct one for The Baggies dont come on all high and mighty saying how good he is, the game is all about opinions and if you dont agree with that maybe you should move somewhere more suitable to your way of thinking, like North Korea maybe ?Albion will be fine. They are a well run club like us who get my respect as a Norwich fan. Pathetic arguing with each other and we all hate Villa now so chill out! Steve Clarke isn't a bad choice the club know what they are doing!Norwich fan,how many football league clubs in a 40 mile radius of Norwich City ? How many football League clubs within a 40 mile radius of West Brom TOWN centre
thats why you have a HUGE fanbase ,you only have competition from Ipswich and sheep.Who ever wrote the comment four above your a clown. I'm a norwich fan and I like wba we are very similar to them. Your comment is disrespectful and we have only been in the prem one season. Wba have outstayed us . From a true fan and a fair one.Hi Ed i remember the last manager he worked with got the sack. Before that he worked with zola at west ham who also got the sack. will he hack it as a manager ? perhaps a call to Terry Conner who is also a well respected coach of the same ability will help him understand the difference between coaching and managing. 13 games in charge won none, drew 4. points available 39, points gained 4. Lets hope Clarke gets off to a good start or the pressure will build rapidly. Good luck to the albion as i think there a brilliant football club with great fans. Not hating, just my opinion.Totally agree with this comment. When will Jeremy Peace take a gamble and invest some money in the club. Chris Houghton was the outstanding candidate for the managers job but Peace wasn't prepared to pay 2m for his services and instead we've got a coach who has never been a No.1 and as a No. 2 has only worked at clubs with far greater than Albion. He'll have shock having to shop in basement markets as opposed to Harrods! We'll probably lose out on Ben Foster for the same reason and lose all the players out of contract too. We'll then struggle to stop up and if we are relegated Peace's tight fisted approach will have back fired completely! From a concerned Baggie

Tottenham after jack butland and Tim krul so harry has three goalie choices(3)(32)One for Europa League
One for Premier League
One for the Domestic Cup :PHot spurs youth prospect tommy forecast, who moved to Southampton has allegedly failed to settle and could be tempted with a move back to white hart lane. May be available for less than butland.Can't see Butland wanting to move and be 2nd reserve!
If the lad's any sense he will opt to join Saints.I'm sure those keepers would much rather be second and third choice than first


08 Jun 2012 07:33:37
I wonder whether Jeremy Peace uses a site to find out who is the cheapest on the market. We will lose out with Foster and go for a goalie who is available for free, been injured for 3 years but was good at some point in his career (Gera, Reid, Giles, Thomas & nearly Hargreaves!) etc...(4)(6)If it wasn't for Jeremy Peace we'd be in debt so cut him some slack


08 Jun 2012 07:23:03
Man Utd have apparently agreed a fee of 25million for spurs midfielder Luka Modric. It could rise to 30million depending on appearances etc. Both clubs have supposedly agreed on this.(28)(25)Yeah we turned down 40 mil last season from chelski to take 25 mil this season. don't think so this is just the tabloids making up st againYou read too many tabloidsWhy would Spurs sell him to United for 25m when Chel$ki offered 40m last year?
I think you need to make up some realistic rumours.Read all the quotes in the story and you will realise it's BSChelsea never actually offered 40 million, And spurs could accept less because redknapp might be on his way out this year or next year and theres no champions league football.

Jack sullivan has tweeted that west ham will sign jussi jaskaelinen today you cant really argue if this is true or not because its from david sullivans son! Also he put on twitter that we have bidded £8 million for 2 foreign strikers! I dont know if he ment £8 mil for both or £8 mil each we will wait and see! COYI!!!(19)(5)I dont think we have the money to be spending 16mil on strikers! must be 8mil in total. I reckon one of: Anelka, Yakubu, Pobgrebnyak(?), JoseluThe two foreign strikers are cavanaghi and akpala one is from River plate and the other is from brugge

Gary Johnson has said he wants 8 or so more players to add too the Yeovil squad. the are likely to be:

Eastwood- free agent
Sam walker- loan from Chelsea (season long)
Weale- free agent and fans favourite
Nathan Smith- chesterfield, skiverton rates him highly McCalister- played under GJ at Bristol city
Lawson D'ath- season long loan from reading
Mcloed- free agent, scored 18 goals in league two last season
Akinfenwa- also scored 18 goals in league 2 but is still under contract at Northampton,(6)(8)Would love all these to happen!Absolute pish pash! Adam and Jason are going no where. Both will play a massive part in the premier league. RFC are trying to build for the future and not dismantle the team prior to starting our third season back in the big time.We are not getting eastwood..he said last week hes re-signing for southend.
gary johnson has said the door is wide open for chris weale, but also said "we cant afford chris, but if he wants to come home he will have to do us a massive favour and take a pay cut" . weale is used to a higher wage at leicester and will have to cut it down and come home. lets just see what happensI'm not being funny but do Yeovil have 200k for Akinfenwa?

Also, you're putting 2+2 together and getting 7 with Akinfenwa to team up with Johnson again. Firstly, he want's to stay near/move nearer London and secondly, Johnson and Bayo did NOT get on while at Northampton. He burned a lot of bridges with him before he left.

It's fair to say that deal is a definite no.How sure are you with these players joining Yeovil?Same, but akinfenwa and smith are unlikely because they would require a fee, but the other five are realistic.I've also heard that GJ has spoken to Ryan Doble (released by Southampton)Except sam walkerYou won't be signing Eastwood, he'll choose Southend over Yeovil.With Reid already signed, I really can't see GJ adding another 3 strikers who would all see themselves as players who should start week in, week out.Yeovil wouldnt even be able to buy bayo let alone pay for his wages... & why would he want to work under that disgrace of a manager johnson again? Also... Sam walker only just signed a new 3year contract with chelsea back in january so thats a noo to!Yeovil now only have two strikers, with Reid and Foley (Foley isn't necessarily a striker anyway) So we need 3 more strikers, I'm really hoping for McLeod unsure about Akinfenwa, but Parkin has been released and his name has been chucked around countless timesI could see D'Ath going on loan to a championship club. Cracking young playerYeovil fans..... haha! enough saidJohnson has said that parkin,smith,eastwood and dickson are not signing for yeovil! and Gary Johnson isn't a joke, your club is a joke. He is a very succesful manager in the west country with us and cityEastwood & Smith definitely not in Johnson's plans.Can't see D'ath going back to Yeovil isn't a winger and doesn't want to play on the wing again got to be allowed to plat attacking midfield to get the best out of himActually states loan for Sam. Doubt he b made first team keeper just yet so loan is very likelyIm a saints fan, and ryan doble is not a good striker.Akinfenwa - No thanksAhaha the deluded Northampton fans are back!I think d'ath would come back he had a successful time with us and johnson got the best out of him also sam walker made several fantastic saves in most of his games for us however he didnt keep enough clean sheets and we need to concede less next season. Also i think izale mcleod will be a class signing as he was the joint league 2 top scorer and we need a proven goal scorer since andy williams has left.Just because Sam Walker has signed a new deal with Chelsea doesn't mean he can't go out on loan again. I wish people would learn about football before making silly comments!Who would actually want to work under johnson? what a top class flop of a disgraceful manager!!! didnt 6 yeovil players reject new contracts? says it all really haha... nice ground by the way.... hahaOnly Two People Rejected New Contracts At Yeovil.

Adam lefondre is expected to be on his out after being possibly linked with a numerous amount of teams.The team mostly interested is Aston villa . Also the same can be said about Jason robberts as he has been insecure of his place at Reading due to being to old and possibly not skilled enough to play premier league football so all I can see is have fun in the championship your gunna get slaughtered lol.(3)(26)Dont know what you are talking about both will be staying at readingYou obviously have no clue about football. Neither of them will go anywhere and ALF will tear up the premiership!!All of this is completely rubbish!! Jason Roberts featured in every game since he joined us and Adam Le Fondre is a big part of Brians future plans. Both have said in local newspapers numerous times that they are going to stay at Reading.

This was made up based on jealousy. Slightly dissappointed you put this up Ed. So many sources out that contradict it, all you need to do is do a quick internet search to prove it wrong. {Ed001's Note - playing in every game in the Championship is a totally different thing to playing in the Prem.}Absolute rubbishLol nice make up something about Reading's two strikers leaving and then say, as they're leaving Reading will get relegated, because of what you just made up? Chill out Dan Brown.Were you drunk when you wrote this?Yes we will sell our top scorer and the catalyst for our promotion push. Don't be silly thanks to Anton we don't have to sell our top players anymore.Alf was a hero last season he isn't going anywhere same with Roberts your just a jealous fan who's team in championshipWho is this clown. Number 1 Reading have just won the championship, number 2 Alfie and Jason Roberts are going nowhere, number 3 at this moment in time Villa are no better than Reading, so why would Alfie move there. Reading are one of the fastest progressing teams in England with investment, one of the best academies in the country and one of the best young managers in England.I know its totally different but Brian McDermott wants to give the team that got us up in the first place with a few alterations. None of the players that played a big part in getting us promoted are leaving, so just completely rubbish the rumours that suggest otherwise.Alf will be a starter next season along with a assume a striker we will buy, Rhodes? Sigurdarson? Yakubu? Roberts will start as back upYou talk like the Norwich fans did before we got their manager.
So if we want him - we get him - Dream on that you are a big team now because you are far from it!Im a Reading fan but we do not have one of the best academies, hence why TSI are planning to upgrade it to one of the best.Not really Mr Aston "survived by the skin of your teeth, used to be a big club but are now nothing" Villa fan. If Reading don't want to sell they won't sell.Sorry but Villa have got a GOOD manager now!
Who wins academy leagues? oh yeh - Villa!
Who makes average players into good players? Villa!
e.g Walker,Milner,Young,Barry & Downing.
Samir Carruthers next season will be the next big thing at Villa Park!Villa big team? I have just heard that Villas transfer kitty for 12/13 is 20m. only 5m more than Reading. The likes of Man Utd etc (the real big teams) are spending that on one player. I am not saying Reading are a big team as a Reading fan but seriously Villa fans, adjust your sense of perspective. You are no longer a big team. Paul Lambert has already confirmed he may be fishing in the lower leagues for "up and coming" players. Sounds like small club talk to me.Downing? Downing! Oh yeh he's setting the league on fire....

Darren Jones will sign a 2 year contract with Shrewsbury Town. (Mr T)(3)(3)Why are we signing league two players we are now in league one and should be signing championship players or at least league one?Apparently he was great for AldershotYou would think we were building a team for league 2 not league 1 football...first Hall & now Jones..we've let decent players go & signed journeymen in return.
