The new on–loan keeper derby will sign is arsenal's vito mannone



11 Mar 2010 21:20:54
Have to laugh at all the Liverpoo fans who seem to think their signing James Milner this summer.

Do you really think O'Neill will sell one of his best players to you after how Rafa destabilised Barry?

Both clubs are now at a similiar level and both will be in the Europe next season, and Villa don't need to sell as they are one of the more financially stable clubs in the league.

Real Villa news:

Outs: Beye to Hull or Burnley for £2 million. Shorey to Fulham for £3 million. Reo–Coker to QPR for £5 million and Harewood out for £0 out of contract.

Clarke and Eric the Yank will be promoted to 1st team squaad along with Bannan and Albrighton although most of these may go out on loan. O'Neill is looking for a sriker as a priority and a centre mid, preferablya n attacking one, although my source can't divulge any names.

Birmingham news: McGeady and Pavluchenko are the main targets and a couple of players in to provide squad depth and replace some of the oldies.

United will sign Joe Cole and Rodwell. Also being looked at are Defour and Morimoto.

Ronaldo won't happen and neither will Brckham, the brutal truth is Becks is past it, so's the rest of the Milan team and they just made him look even better.


11 Mar 2010 21:25:06
Rodwell to Manchester United

surprise move Anderson to Fulham .

Villa to sign Kevin Doyle a head of Sunderland & Birmingham keeping eyes on him.

Arsenal to sign one young defender from the premiere league . Campbell might stay for one more season

Rio & Vidic going no where .might be the case Evans will go to Barcelona or Real Madrid but Sir Alex a big fan of him might not let him move .

Ben Foster & Wes brown to sign for the same Premiere Club . may be used in some Swap deal .

After all they are all Rumourss..

David Villa or any other high profile striker will not be joining Man Utd in te summer. Although, there is some interest in Karim Benzema again but he will only be pursued upon if Michael Owen's hamstring injury is prolonged to more than the first 4 months of the season.

Note: I do not yet have any information on loan singings and sellings. But please look for out for more information in the coming weeks.



11 Mar 2010 20:59:18
David jones is selling his house in porthcawl, and will be on the lookout for a job at a championship or even spl club this summer


11 Mar 2010 19:35:49
Ex–Portsmouth player Zoran Tosic has been training with Swansea City and could be offered a permanent contract after being released by cash–strapped Portsmouth.

Also, Swansea City are looking at possible options such as Stephen Quinn and Lee Frecklington on loan, thought Frecklington talks have stalled.


11 Mar 2010 19:59:35
The person who wrote that ronaldo has a clause in his contract, your spot on. Fergie made sure he had a first refusal to buy the winker back but i doubt this will happen. when ronaldo scored last night all the madrid players seemed to love him but who know's. A little whisper i heard is that fergie may use vidic and money for ronaldo or vidic berba and money. I also got told of vidic berba 50 million for ronalso and benzema but i think its all rubbish.


11 Mar 2010 20:07:14
To the Preston fan at The Taps in Lytham St. Annes:

Any more news about Preston?

Heard that the poisoned dwarf (Fergie Jnr.) has been upsetting players again – have also heard one ex–player say that he was behaving like a 'complete spoilt brat'.

Any updates on Hemmings/Shaw too? Cheers, Brad in Carnforth.


11 Mar 2010 20:13:07
To the person who posted about Ken Bates:

I haven't heard anything to corroborate your story, but I assure you that even if the worst happened to Bates we'd be ok.

We're not the only club with a 'Granddad' chairman – Leicester and Fulham both have 'oldies' in charge, and I'm sure they like us have plans in place if the worst happened to their owner.

We'll probably have a new owner from Saudi Arabia soon, if recent news stories are to be believed, so it bodes well for the future – back in the Premiership by summer 2012!! :D

Would be funny if we went up whilst the Riddler takes the Blueturds down – what comes round goes round gentlemen, and couldn't happen to a nastier bunch of 'fans'!


11 Mar 2010 20:24:58
Rafa has put his house up for sale, so is looking increasingly like exiting liverpool very soon!

Man City can tempt Ronaldo back to the EPL all they want but the facts remain:
– Ronaldo hates City
– Ronaldo has stated himself that he would only come back to the EPL to play for United again
– Ronaldo has a £500 million buy out claus in his Real Madrid contract which lasts for 5 years. So anyone who tries to buy him will have to offer £500 million +

On to a real rumour.. David Beckham will go back to L.A. Galaxy in the summer and then United will put in a bid to bring him back home. The emotion Beckham went through at Old Trafford yesterday night was enough to tempt SAF to bring him back to Old Trafford.


11 Mar 2010 16:14:18

I don't beleive anyone would know some of the young 'wizz kids' as stated on this web site without playing the game, and yes, i do play the game but don't then spout of sequesnces of events from it..

Real rumours please, on BCFC if possible??!

Keep Right On!


11 Mar 2010 14:18:08
To Liverpool fans believing Jose Mourinho would be their next manager! You are all deluded. Mourinho is the highest paid manager in the world and has a contract till 2012. It would cost alot for Liverpool to break his contract and Mourinho has already expressed he wants to see out the proect till 2012. The only way Mourinho will become available is if he is sacked and that will only happen if Inter go out of the champions League and as Inter have yet to play Chelsea in the second leg. However after Real Madrid's embaressing exit to Lyon in the Champions League Last 16, expect Pellegrini to be sacked at the end of the season or sooner. Perez wants success in the Champions League and knows that buying worlds best talent is not enough. Real need a manager capable of controlling the egoes and delivering trophies. Mourinho could be tempted into joining the Galacticos wheather he keeps his job at Inter or not. If its not Mourinho then the other target is Benitez.


11 Mar 2010 14:50:07

Heard from reliable banking source that LFC are repaying the £100m owed to RBOS.Now the bad news..they are using a hedge fund to repay this debt to get the bank off their back.What this means is the hedge fund will be more expensive and will be like a second mortgage, so will be harder to service the debt, but Rbos will be happy.So, this could mean it is only a short term loan to pave way for a hopeful takeover ?? I am led to believe there will be an announcement soon.. sorry can't be more specific about the date


11 Mar 2010 13:21:26
Benitez WILL be gone by the summer, no matter what anybody else says or thinks!!
The stories(as that's all they are, stories)that Jamie Carragher is being lined up are utter nonsense!!Carragher is nowhere near to completing his FA & UEFA Coaching passes yet!!
Hicks has been trying to defend Benitez from the tidal–wave of pressure since this diabolical season begun, but he can no longer protect him.
Gillette, who dispises Benitez, has met with Jose Mourinho's representatives & a deal has been struck in principle, they were told that a big takeover is imminent this Summer & that Money WILL be readily made available for Mourinho's rebuilding programme.
–Melwood Mole.


11 Mar 2010 13:28:16
HART––another year at birmingham, possible tranfere to the club after this he, s made it quite clear HE DOES NOT WANT TO PLAY IN LONDON!!
regardless of the mess £ully and greasy gold left the club in MCLIESH will have all the money he wants MCREADY is a cert PAV FROM SPURS will also be a go, er HARRY should be locked up by then
don, t be suprised at a few trialists from s/america
including a certain forward who nearly signed recently


11 Mar 2010 13:29:47
Glasgow Rangers

Do we have any news on any other potential buyers of the club or is Andrew Ellis the only one that has opened discussions with MIH.

Genuine rumours!


11 Mar 2010 12:48:40
Looks like with the title almost in the bag, Rangers won't be selling anyone in the summer, and if anything will be adding to the squad!!

One signing which i know will happen is the back up goalkeper signing of Johnny tuffey from Partick thistle!

And the possible loan signing of Rodrigo Possebon from Man United on loan for the season, altho I can't see why we need to bring in another centre mid!


11 Mar 2010 12:48:43
Leicester to sign James vaughan this week on 1 month loan with a veiw to sign for rest of season.


11 Mar 2010 12:51:49
Alonso back to Liverpool this summer!


11 Mar 2010 12:51:53
If this C. Ronaldo transfer stuff is true, that means that for sure Ribery will be going to Madrid. Also, as Joe Cole has announced he will not sign w/ Chelsea again, Manchester Utd may cool their interest in him with the thought of maybe getting back Ronaldo. If either is signed, Nani is on his way for about 10–14m.


11 Mar 2010 12:24:02
For god sake Bendtner will not leave or will not be allowed to leave because more than anything Wenger would love to prove to the world that he is right. Everytime Bendtner has a bad game Wenger becomes more adamant to play him. This means only one striker will be signed, Chamakh.
Next seasons first team line up.
Sagna Gallas Vermaelen Clichy
Fabregas Nasri
Van Persie Arshavin
Subs: Mannone, Gibbs, Sakho, Diaby, Walcott, Ramsey, Bendtner.

Gooner 4 LIFE


11 Mar 2010 10:46:07
There are two sets of plans at Liverpool accounting for whether the club get 4th place or not. A large list of potential transfer targets has been drawn up. All the names have been mentioned many times. Benitez will simply have £20m less to spend without CL qualification but that larger issue that he will not be able to attract certain targets without CL football. Additionally, the owners/RBS will impose further constraints on the wages offered to new players as it is recognized that CL qualification will get harder with each year and they will start to plan for life without that annual income. Despite Purslow previously saying that the annual budget is drawn up without CL money, that only tells part of the story. That covers existing ongoing liabilities but the Banks will start to impose restrictions on new spending until they have their oans repaid. New investment is crucial now to halt the decline of the club for the foreseable future.


11 Mar 2010 11:13:41
Wolverhampton Midfielder Andrew Surman is on the verge of joining Nottingham Forest on loan until the end of the season.

Suman can play in a number of positions on the left side. Midfield , and left back.

Without doubt the player would be an excellent addition to this young talented squad.

Expect the deal to be done before the game against Preston as billy Davies wants to take a balanced team to his former club and get forests away form back on track with a good win.



11 Mar 2010 11:38:52
Celtic to sign Ruddy, Ramis, St Ledger, driver, Keane, NGuemo, Rangel and Scharner. Out will go McGeady, Brown, McManus, Boruc, Samaras and Hinkel. out 16m in 23m.


11 Mar 2010 10:13:38
With a lot of players only on loan at celtic and no champions league money coming nxt year it looks as if 2 star players will have to be sold in order to make these loan deals permanent or seek new players. the manager (whoever that is next season) will not be given all of the money for new players as there is no champions lg football and attendences are dwindling.

mc geady to birmingham £10mil
brown to villa/spurs £6–7mil
boruc?? to hamburg £4mil??
hinkel to dortmund £3mil

any suggestions/rumours on who the hoops could target to replace these players?



11 Mar 2010 03:56:28
Liverpool, Man City, Real Madrid –

Gerrard to Man City in a £30million plus Stephen Ireland deal. Man City will try to tempt Ronaldo in a sensational move back to England from Real Madrid. Real are desperate to get rid after the rest of Real's squad have fell out with Ronaldo. They will accept an offer of £50million from Man City. All strong rumours, from good sources. Expect to hear more soon from elsewhere.


11 Mar 2010 08:32:09
Does any body know anything about this interview with berbatov and a possible move this summer!

from a green and gold warrior


11 Mar 2010 08:54:40
With Real exiting the CL expect them to chase Rafa as next manager, they are the only team with the finances (that want) to buy him out of his contract. Rafa's replacement the much talked about return to english football of The Special One, his first signing Joe Cole on a free transfer.


11 Mar 2010 09:20:03
I heard guus or special 1.. Wts ur source? Ther was talk on here of hodgson but the fella was just guessing but urs has abit too much detail to b a guess. V BBC BBC11 Mar 2010 02:52:16
Massive rumors on Merseyside is that Rafa is going in the summer and his replacement is none other than.Carra (with Kenny guiding him through)! Remember Paisley & The King? This will happen.
So wts ur souce?


11 Mar 2010 09:34:11
Malky Mackay days are numbered no matter what the outcome for the next few games. G.T has been making calls and Kenny Jackett is top on his list.Taylor is also keen to bring in Blissett to as his no. 2 if he agrees.


11 Mar 2010 02:52:16

11 Mar 2010 03:10:59
Real madrid are selling c.ronaldo in the summer since alot of first team players have stated they will not play if he stays because of how arrogant he is or something?
not many clubs are interested in him anymore man city would probably sign him or a swop for pato/ronaldinho/davids etc may happen.
also there is a small chance that henry may rejoin arsenal since he said the only team he will ever play for now is arsenal and barca are trying to get bojan first team chances and are trying to lower wage payouts etc.
expect a cheap buy for wenger if he does decide to come.
in other news deco to leave chelsea
zidane signing for arsenal
rooney may possibly join real madrid according to speculations and ruin his career just like ronaldo.
also donovan transfers to everton in the summer
man city to sell steven ireland and possibly try replacing him with nasri.


10 Mar 2010 23:35:07
PL Transfer Targets Summer 2010 Chelsea

Deco, Belletti, Ferreira and Malouda OUT Definitely

Joe Cole, Ashley Cole, Kalou, Anelka OUT Possibly

DECO: The options; RVDV, Mata, Silva, Hamsik, Dzagoev, Pjanic, Teixeira, Kaka, Alcantara, Canales

Its no secret that Chelsea are chasing Hamsik and that RVDV has been mentioned is the Chelsea/RM jostling of recent times.Question is will Hamsik leave Italy (Inter Offer) and will RVDV give a poor showing here too. Teixeira, Dzagoev and Pjanic are young, but we could certainly use their youth, and with Lampard ageing signing two of them, but only bringing one to the Bridge for now is certainly not out of the question. Mata and Silva are certainly in the mix but there will be a lot of competition for their signatures. Kaka is th dark horse, he almost joined Chelsea in 2005, is a good mate of Carlo and is unhappy and unproductive at RM. Thiago Alcantara would be good, but I'd rather him to come in a few years, maybe a loan to Twente ? depending upon whether or not Sergio Canales is signed up with RM is the basis upon which we should go chasing.

MALOUDA: options; di Maria, Ribery, Krasic, Silva, Mata, Kaka, Urreta, Dzagoev, Pjanic, Teixeira, Alcantara, Ki

di Maria and Ribery are the obvious choices, but again there will be war for their signatures. Krasic would be great, but at the moment he seems destined to go elsewhere. Again Silva and Mata are propositions, as is Kaka but Mata emerges as the favourite with his left wing experience. I like Urreta and he would be great alongside Kakuta, di Maria or Ribery, but he's probably a 2012 signing. Dzagoev, Teixeira and Pjanic are all young, they could spend some time on the left before moving to the centre of midfield. Thiago Alcantara would be good, but I'd rather him to come in a few years, maybe a loan to Twente ? Ki Sung–Yueng is talented and would be a boon for Chelsea merch sales in Korea.

BELLETTI and FERREIRA: the options; S Taylor, M Mancienne, N Subotic, D Luiz

Mancienne is the cheapest option, with Taylor estimated at about 9 million and considerably more for Subotic, this may come down to price. D Luiz however is probably the best option.

JOE COLE; Options; Schwiensteiger, Stoch, Silva, Kaka, Dzagoev, Pjanic, Teixeira, Assulin

Schweinsteiger is the ideal replacement for Ballack but he could also replace Joe Cole, making Stoch the probable pick, its a shame Maxi went to Liverpool then he would have been ideal. Again Silva and Dzagoev, Pjanic , Teixeira are propositions, as is Kaka who emerges as the group favourite. Gai Assulin would be a great get but we are competing with AFC for him.

ASHLEY COLE: Options: Vargas, Dani Alves

Vargas is the only real option I see, i hope we don't loose Ashley, though Vargas is good. Alves obvioulsy plays on the right and is not a real option to replace Ashley, but could be part of swap deal with Barca for Ashley

ANELKA: Options: Villa, Pato, Aguero, Gomis, Balotelli

Villa is expensive and ageing but good, Pato seems destined to one day join Chelsea, Aguero should if he stops mucking us about, Gomis is strong talented and young, as is Balotelli.

KALOU: Options: Nilmar, Morimoto

Morimoto is a bright young star in Serie A, and would blast our Japanese Merch slaes into the stratosphere. Villreal's cash crisis may see Nilmar move to the Bridge, which would be a good move.

Youth Striker: Lukaku, and potentially Christian Eriksen as well.


10 Mar 2010 23:53:20
A friend of mine is a youth scout for rangers and has told me alan hutton will be bak at rangers in the summer. he is a swap with bougera goin in opposit way plus 2 million to rangers. he also herd that davis is considerin a move to newcastle


11 Mar 2010 00:14:51
LFC fan here, the only realistic rumours i can see flourishing are the ones of; Galatasaray winger Arda Turan and Palermo centre back Simon Kjaer as they've both publicly declared their interest in joining us.
Has anyone any NEW information on the takeover situation?


11 Mar 2010 00:40:31
LFC Going to bid on Arda Turan and Theo Walcott!!!
Believe it or Not!!!
This may just be a rumour but it can always be a fact!!!



10 Mar 2010 23:32:14
Arsenal to sell denilson in summer and buy replacement in form of jeremy toulalan. wengher very keen on this deal


10 Mar 2010 23:30:44
Have to laugh at people saying big changes at the emirates only person who really knows is wenger, after reciving phone call from my dad who knows alot of the older staff from highbury days he says chamach definitley new goalie 99.9% cover for song and a centre half that's it


10 Mar 2010 22:27:15
To whoever said this
"Liv'pool: Until rafa is fired, he will keep buying stupid pointless 10m players that no one knows. If the rumors about a new owner are true, then they will probabley give the manger (whoever it is) more money than most are expecting. If we have a new ambitious manager (mourinho pleeeaaaassseeee) then we could sign someone in the likes of David Villa or Silva."

Somewhat now you think Silva and Villa will be brought in when a new manager comes to liverpool?, No they will choose the players they want. Those are Rafas probable choices if new owners come to anfield. As for other rumours;

RAFA WILL NOT BE LEAVING LIVERPOOL. Instead look foward to seeing maybe one or two big names leaving anfield with more quality players coming through at liverpool because after this season They will be doing a rehabilation on there squad and will be looking to make the top four.

Ryan Babel may be leaving with dealings done behind closed curtains during Jan Transfer Window
in a possible Swap deal (Not with K.Jones) But with Arda Turan of Galatasary. (Research on Internet I believe there are articles.)

Milan Jovanovic, Has already been signed and is due for a medical early June/July and I personally look foward to see him Playing. This will provide a good link with Torres upfront and our Midfield.

Tawio of Marseille or Kjaer of Palmero will help with our defence expect one to be signed and another Youth or Cheap experienced defender.


10 Mar 2010 22:36:47
AC Milan to have a drastic change of players and coach in the summer. Leonardo will be sacked, lippi/flores/pellegrini to replace him. Players leaving will be: Dida corinthians £2mil, Jankolovski(spelling) lazio £1.5mil, flamini lyon £8mil, gattuso aston villa £4.5mil, mancini loan return, inzaghi wender bremen £500k, Ambrosini £4 genoa. Lloris will sign for £23mil lyon, belletti £3mil chelsea, anderson £15mil, bale 7mil tottenham, bassong £10mil tottenham, benzema 6month loan.


10 Mar 2010 22:39:46
Liverpool. What's ur source? Lfc. are willing to sell Gerrard but not Torres. Rafa wants Balotelli from Inter as part of the deal which will see Gerrard move to the Milan side. I mentioned a while back about Pepe Reina being made Liverpool captain next season and Gerrard knows this will happen regardless. Carragher will not step up but will still be vice captain as Rafa wants an Agger/Kjaer partnership as his first choice. Rafa will try to replace Gerrard with one of Milner or Javi Martinez. Liverpool are also tracking Tom Cairney of Hull, Otimendi of Velez and as eveybody knows Mata of Valencia. Also a left back is needed but I have no names, just a rumour that first choice is a British player.
