Billy Sharp could be heading back to Doncaster on loan, after failing to settle in at Southampton(30)(40)Should have gone to LeicesterHave you spoken to him or is this a hopeful guess based on the fact he is not guaranteed a place in the starting 11. 99% of the rumours about Billy have proven to be false. Why should he have gone to a mediocre mid table team?What a stupid comment! Saints are top of the Championship with 10 games left, they have been in the top two for all of the season, so they have a strong squad and they have brought in additional players in January to add to this squad. No-one is going to walk into the first 11 of a team with this record and the squad will all be important in the coming weeks, including Sharp. Don't you think his focus will be on contributing so he gains a place (and wages) in a Premiership team in the near future rather than going back to a relegation struggle!To the Reading!!!!Poster 3, congrats your the first saints fan on this site to post something that is actually well thought out and worth reading.Yeah on loan

Gary Docherty will get a permenant move
to wycombe for a fee of 40 thosand(14)(8)Hope you're right. As he hasn't been playing for Charlton all season, there must be a fair chance of a permanent transfer. Doherty has been quality since arriving at Adams Park on loan, as have Paul Hayes and Craig Eastmond.


10 Mar 2012 22:01:10
Nottingham Forest keen on landing Sheffield Wednesday giant defender Reda Johnson on a pre contract agreement after Dave Jones playing well without him in First team!! 4-1 Bury, 3-0 Bournemouth!!!(1)(23)Red Johnson has been injured. He was available for the Bournemouth game but DJ had said in the match notes that he'd prefer to ease him back in. Doubt he's going anywhere for a while. Big player at the club.

Cheik Tiote and Demba Ba will leave Newcastle this summer.
Due to their new wage demands - they will leave for a combined £70m which will be used to help pay off their club debt.(6)(75) 

Demba ba can leave for 3and half millHope so ha70m --- has King Kenny got that much cash this year!!It is known that Ba has a 7m release clause (which he recieves an %) so more like 4m for Ba and maybe 18m for Tiote maybe - so 22m topsNew wage demands? tiote signed a 6 yr deal last season so still has 5yrs to run.. he has no power to negotiate. it's up to the club to sell himLol talk sport junk - just because it was said if someone makes an Andy Caroll esk bid for a player Newcastle would sell- they twist this to Newcastle will sell all of their squad... utter junk

If it is on talk sport and it has not already happened then it aint gonna happen... their news is old news their scoops are utter junkHa ha hilourius I'm worth a 1m thenWhst debt? Lmao! Newcastle are breaking even! Theyvdont NEED to sell!What debt ?? lol try the 100 mill plus in debt LMAO

10 Mar 2012 13:53:14
Heard Neil Warnock is readying summer raids for Clint Hill and Darren Pratley whether Leeds are promoted or not, with Forssell, Nunez and Rachubka leaving.(12)(15)Wether we are promoted or not ?

Fleetwood Town to sign Robbie Fowler(11)(43) 



10 Mar 2012 11:42:10
Mirror reporting that Reading want Hayden Mullins. He'd be back up if we got him really.(25)(12)


10 Mar 2012 10:12:17
Reading fc to take Reading born Midfielder Hayden Mullins on loan and West Ham to take Jason Pearce and Stephen Henderson(29)(14)This is good for both clubs


09 Mar 2012 23:26:00

09 Mar 2012 21:15:19

09 Mar 2012 19:30:34
pompey sign chris maguire on loan from derby to go into team for game v brighton source evening news portsmouth(14)(22)See the f a going out of their way to
help pompey again pity thet did nt help the smaller clubs like bournemouth luton etc when they were in trouble expect pompey will get 10 points back if they look certs to get relegated the whole saga of pompey stinks do everyone a favour go down the pan sooner the betterOuch sum1s a bit bitter! The FA r helpin pompey because they realise they r not entirely inocent in this, they failed 2 spot a crook wen Antonov came in. Give pompey a breakI am a pompey fan and your comments are very harsh. The fans themselves are not to blame but be assured they are they only ones being punished throughout this. And i for one dont wish to see any ckub go out of business including my neighbours down the road. And you only feel that the fa have helped pompey in anyway you are very much mistaken, fit and proper person!!!!!!!How are the fans the only ones being punished .What about all the small buisnesses that have lost money AGAIN and the likes of the St Johns Ambulance your club needs to be taught a lessonWe all knew Pompey would get out of it again. They'll be signing Premiership players on big wages again next season and the fans will lap it up. How much is Ben Haim on again Pompey fans? Probably earning enough in a few months to save several non-league clubs that are in the brown stuff for not being able to scrape together enough to pay the tax every month. Sickening, used to like Pompey but not anymore. Have no sympathy for them whatsoever and the person above me is right, they need to be taught a severe lesson.The people that owned the club need to be taught a lesson not the fans. An investigation as to what has actually gone on at fratton park should be authorised.Firstly, we did not sign Ben Haim whilst in the Championship, we signed (or should I say Redknapp signed him) when we were a Premiership side. This was prior to our first administration - so get your facts correct. I agree with last comment that in investigation needs to take place as I think that it will prove that a few people have had their fingers in the till over the last few years, naming no names but I suspect one could be a prospective England manager.Should have got rid of Ben Haim then and concentrated on paying your bills rather than useless players like him. Your club is a joke and you're now up there with Liverpool as the most hated clubs in England. And all this rubbish about great fans and feeling sorry for them? Sorry, every Pompey fan I've met has been an ahole and I can't stand them. Enjoy League One!I feel for the Pompey fans no one likes to see another club go to the wall.

The fa, your owners and greedy players need to be held to blame for the mess your in.


09 Mar 2012 19:30:18
Plymouth Argyle on the verge of signing Robbie Fowler.(12)(34)Oh here we go againHe's going to Fleetwood TownWhat are they going to pay him free will?


09 Mar 2012 18:24:26

09 Mar 2012 17:41:59
dulee johnson will go on a test in chesterfield(5)(5)

i hear that mk dons are looking at sign mcloed again at the end of the season ......why?(11)(7)


09 Mar 2012 14:20:47
I know Neil Warnocks son. Been told that he has a few targets in mind for the summer. Not saying that they're definatly going to Leeds but they're beinhg looked at.

Matt Ritchie- Swindon
Clint Hill- QPR
Matt Mills- Leicester
Neil Montgomery- Sheff Utd
John Fleck- Rangers
Matty Fryatt- Hull
Jamie Vardy- Fleetwood {Ed013's Note - I heard rumour his son was a Leeds fans. Does he live in Leeds? Could be one of the reasons Mr Warnock took over}(11)(21)His 2 Grandchildren are in the Leeds United AcademyWhat a load of rubbish - Source: Warnock's Postman...What a complete load of nonsense, Bates wouldn't pay the wages of those players, never mind their transfer fees.I support and work at Fleetwood Town and know Vardy, he hates Leeds. He would never go there.What a load of cos wallop ,post something that might be true ,I saw a dutch black blinged up range rover heading out of Thorp Arch yesterday (Sat 10/3/2012) but didnt recognised the driver- are there any dutch players on trial at the moment?I am a ST holder at Fleetwood and know that JV IS a Leeds fan, him and another couple of players. Don't pretend he isn't-fan he might be, but he isn't, and won't, be going there.Warnock must be working his magic then as Bates would never ever open his cheque book for those signings!


09 Mar 2012 13:58:01
Colchester United are in talks with Reading
to sign defender Ethan Gage. The
Canadian defender has said he would welcome a move to the Essex club.(11)(4)On loan a very real possibility. We have a good relationship with CUFC.


09 Mar 2012 08:58:39
Reading will sign Nikolay Mihaylov with Mikkel Andersen moving to Twente.(2)(20)That's a bit of a random one. I haven't heard anything about this but will ask.Son of Boris Mihaylov? If he's half as bad as his father was for us then I hope not.Mikkel signed a new long term contract a few months ago, I really doubt that he's going to leave. He might go out on loan for a season or two, but not likely to move permanently.Obviously not going to happen, lazy journalism


09 Mar 2012 08:28:10
Barker to be sacked if Bury fail to pick up any points in the next 3 games(5)(16)


08 Mar 2012 20:17:50
Leyton Orient have signed Jamie Smith from Brighton, Adam Reed from Sunderland, and Jamal Campbell-Ryce from Bristol City.(22)(11)

08 Mar 2012 16:32:48
Official Gaz (Gary Alexander) has left to join Crawley.(17)(6)


08 Mar 2012 15:47:15
Reading are taking a look at Basingstoke towns Delano Sam-Yorke with a view of purchasing him in the summer(7)(10)Won't be buying 23 year olds with a 'may become good enough one day' attitude anymore. We will focus on our own youth intake and development whilst supplementing with Champ/Prem players where necessary. He would end up another Baseya/Bignall/Williams, I expect.^^^^^^^^
Who are you going to run a football club when you do not get anyone fr the academy?You don't sign 23 year olds for the academy.....We get plenty of players from the academy. Karacan, Hal Robson-Kanu, Sigurdsson, D'Ath, Obita, Hector, Jack Mills - The last four are up and coming now, on loan at clubs in the football leagues getting experience.


08 Mar 2012 15:18:26
Crawley have just signed Gary Alexander from Brentford for undisclosed fee, loan with view to a permanent deal.(16)(3)


08 Mar 2012 15:10:21
Huddersfield will loan Reading's Brian Howard until the end of the season.(16)(5)Makeweight for Rhodes deal? (i realise this is unlikely, i expect him to go to lower half prem club next season which i doubt we will be)We could beHoward is best mates with Anthony Kay, lived round the corner from each other when at Barnsley togetherConsidering Howard is out of the first team, and subs it could be possible. I wouldn't say it's a make-weight for Rhodes as I honestly don't see us spending that much on one player. If we were going to spend that much, we'd try sign Gylfi back I'd imagine.


08 Mar 2012 13:39:58
Fleetwood Town are interested in signing Robbie Fowler on a deal until the end of the season.

Mr.Roller Coaster(10)(26)Just shows wat a joke blackpool are as a club,hope oysten and his pathetic little club miss out on the play offs ha ha poor little sad blackpooApparently there may be some truth to this rumour. I was told this yesterday by somebody very close to the clubs owners. I personally think he will bring too much baggage and disrupt the harmony within the squad.... However don't rule this move outI can officially confirm robbie was offered a 100 pound a week wages plus 5000 pound per game played this is the reason he never signedI work at Fleetwood Town and yes this is true.


08 Mar 2012 13:38:30
Crystal Palace's talented youngster Wilfried Zaha is heading to Spurs this summer for £8m (rising to £10m based on appearances).(12)(24)Since u dont even no if harry will be there i cant see any transfers happening untill hes commitedIt's one thing hearing a solid rumour but you never, NEVER, know the fee and deal behind it. So this can be filed under 'over active childs imagination'


08 Mar 2012 12:32:06
Joel Ward could go to either watford or Ipswich on loan, very shortly as part of the [pompey exodus of players need if pompey want to survive at all

Source TWTD(26)(10)The Ward loan deal has to be done and dusted by either 10th or 11th, according to Trevor Birch Pompey's administrator, Ward's had talks with Ipswich about the move this week, so we should know hi decison by 12th, He will get the RB slot at Ipswich if he moves there


08 Mar 2012 12:26:48
Scouts watching Plymouth starlet
Matt Lecointe would have been
impressed on his England u18 debut, scoring within 2 mins of being on the field.

Lad is pure quality and unfortunately is unlikleyo be at Home park for long...

Proof of the quality of Plymouths Academy(8)(6)Just a pity plymouths 1st teams so bad


08 Mar 2012 12:07:46
Watford have joined the race to sign Portsmouth's Joel Ward. Ipswich recently had bids rejected but are now renewing their interest in signing the defender/midfielder initially on loan with a view to permanent transfer at the end of the season.(12)(6)Ipswich won't follow this upUniversally known to all and sundry that Ipswich had bids accepted on transfer deadline day, but deal fell through due to excessive wage demands!It fell through as the two players did not want to leave.It broke down on wages simple as.

even if these player slove Pompey they must have know with administration looming they would be moved on.Never wanted to leaveIpswich have followed this up, Ward was at Portman Road Friday 9th


08 Mar 2012 11:52:36

08 Mar 2012 10:28:09
West Ham United and Everton have both made bids to sign Barnsley star Jacob Butterfield. The 21 year old captain is currently out injured until the summer but has put some superb performances in this season before the injury to interest certain managers. Despite a number of club registering their interest in the England under 21 midfielder, only West Ham and Everton have made bids. {Ed013's Note - He is out of contract in the summer}(5)(8)Stoke city also intrestedSo are Middlesbrough, Newcastle and CelticHe is out of contract in the summer but as he is under 24 compensation will hav to be paid. Will either be a straight forward sale or go to tribunal so clubs may offer more to avoid going to a tribunalOnly 2 are Newcastle & Boro Fee tribunual


08 Mar 2012 10:12:17
STOKE CITY TO SIGN MATT PHILIPS FROM BLACKPOOL AGREED FEE .3.7M(13)(37)No chance! He is worth twice that. Having the tightest chairman in Britain, do you honestly think he would sell his main asset on the cheap?No way they had a better player in Ben Marshall and let him go


08 Mar 2012 10:08:06
ARSENAL - have agreed a fee in princable for RVP for 56m from man city..not to be made public till end of the season in which ARSENALS board have given the go ahead for venger to get his replacement ASAP in which ARSENAL made a bid for lukas podolshi of 11.5M which has been excepted .rvp himself is happy to leave at the end of the season to play at a higher level and win medals(17)(47)Na wuddnt say so RVP will not go no where y wud he wanna go there and f his job upThink for 215k a week man city have offerd him plus champions league football and a club that win things might have something do with itYou haven't won anything yet!RVP @ 56m for 1 year left? lol
No way hosay!
25m MAX!What an idiot. "a club who wins things" haha yeah a great history of "winning things" at city! + Arsenal will have champions league next season. If RVP goes anywhere there will be a bidding war so there's no way Arsenal would have agreed to sell him. Typical deluded City fansIf wenger had spent some money in the
transfer market instead of being
stubborn perhaps rvp would nt need
to go anywhere to win somethingWhat a load of pollacks as the advert says


08 Mar 2012 08:50:53
Liverpool to sign Jan Vertonghen,
Cristian Eriksen,Eden Hazard and
Edinson Cavani(19)(68)I wouldn't like this.. I would love it.. Will never happen :( YNWAGive it up you can't attract them high profile players hence the reason Carroll Henderson and Adam were bought.dream on kid dream onNo their not that would cost around 90mSomeone has his football manager confused with real life....What a load of bcksIs this your wish list mate?And Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all.I guess they are all itching to play with Jordan Henderson and Andy Carroll in the Europa LeagueNot a hope in hell!Agrre, Liverpool won't sign one of them let alone all of them dream on.This is a rumours site not a complete load of BS site, come on not one of these players will sign for us - not til we get some aspiration!Mate, what are you trying to get from that?Dream On , Liverpool will not attract any top players unitl they return to the champions league , i could see some average players coming in , maybe a new right midfielder? but not cavaniChances of that happening 0 out of 1000000. not a chanceTurn off your fifa 12 mate, those players want to be playing in the champions league not europa, and cavani? hes turned down madrid, barca, united and city to stay with napoli so highly doubt he'd move to liverpoolBased on the valuations at Liverpool....
I.e 35 million Carroll
20 million Henderson
Your wish list will probably cost you about 250 million because unlike the other purchases there would actually be some talent there!


08 Mar 2012 01:22:24
Crawley are closing in on the signature of Barnet forward Izale McLeod. The Crawley Board have bitten the bullet and agreed to pay the extra £75,000 that the Bees were after to secure the League 2 goalmachine on loan till the end of the season before the move is made a permanent one in the summer.(13)(10)I'll stump up the 75k myself if it means we get someone who can stick it in the net!
