Niall Caravan and Shaun Goater have held contract talks with Southend United.

The two players are said to be great friends with Bilel Moshini and said that is the reasoning behind the move.

Lee Hughes and Marlon King are set to sign for Rotherham.

Heard it hear first.(4)(21)ISAAC McLeod, top playerMight have scored a few goals last season but he is lazy does'nt want to do any work certainly not worth 1 millionNo way they would pay £1m for him. NOt even worth £100k. Isn''t he out of contract also?Dont be daft hes out of contract what a load of cobblersNot only do you not know his name but he is also out of contract so I will have a million quid please !

10 May 2012 21:40:46
I have heard from a reliable source
that Yeovil Town are close to re signing
Chris Cohen. Should happen early next
week(4)(21)Chris Cohen has been a first team regular since 2007, he's a fans favorite, he is settled in notts, and he's out with a bad injury. Apart from that I'd say your source is spot on. (Or a derby fan)

Agent 279RubbishChris Cohen is one of forests best players and has been I juried for six months.
If he was to go it would be to lower prem, which will not happen until he has proven his fitness between now and jan.
IdiotFrom a yeovil fan, we got no chance, hes a class player and ive heard hes highly thought of at forest, huge star of future so he would be taking a mile backwards, not just a few steps


10 May 2012 21:37:39
Heard Newcastle are about to pay £4.5m for Matt Jarvis of wolves and £4m for Kevin Doyle.(8)(30)They dont really add anything to what newcastle have, and besides, there will be no deals to st james' until they know whether or not they will be playing in champions league or not so that means after the chelsea game probablyPlease can you start calling the stadium by its proper name - the sports direct arena. Matt Jarvis is destined for stoke and would be a perfect fit. It will be interesting to see if toon can see off the big boys who come calling for their stars - cisse, cabaya and tiote. If you don't make CL then they will be off and you can have a dose of the Europa cup which will guarantee you mid table next season.Jarvis to Stoke? Wake up! He'll be staying at the Wolves.


10 May 2012 21:30:06
Euell, Doherty, Alonso, Popo, Warren and Gough released by Charlton. Gough has already signed a two year contact with Bristol Rovers though andhas also featured in there 4-0 thumping against Dagenham & Redbridge.(2)(4)I dont know why this is on here it was announce by that club last week.


10 May 2012 21:28:22
kayode odejayi to be unveiled next week at ipswich town apparently the big signing jewells been looking for source twtd(5)(10)Unlucky for Ipswich as he was useless at Barnsley n couldn't put ball in an open net.Out of all the people he could buy, he 'supposedly' gets Odejayi.
Dont get me wrong he is a good player but is just not a championship standard player! You could do alot better than him with the money you have, (colchester fan)Rember what he did at Barnsley? nothing only scored the goal against Chelsea


10 May 2012 21:27:16
Right, have some Rotherham news..

After securing Nardiello who was Evans' top target he will now complete the signing of free agent midfielder Nathan Doyle from Barnsley. He is also currently in talks with two other players, one being Krystian Pearce, from Notts County, where a fee has already been agreed. The other player is winger, Lloyd Sam, who has recently been released bt Leeds United. They have also had a transfer offer accepted for a League 1 striker, which will break the clubs transfer record if it happens. This has come from a scout from a club, who has also told me that they are not at all interested in Oxford United striker James Constable..(7)(5)Lloyd Sam is a done deal. Will be announced tomorrow.I dont think james constable has any time time for that muppet evans yes he will spend big but dont forget wage cap 65% of income on players wages your crowd aint big enough to pay big wages so either administration or something dodgy and fa will punish you points deduction or something evans is not the man for you left Crawley who are now l1 why stay in l2 something is'nt quite right best of luck to Rotherham your gonna need itWhy would Lloyd Sam go the Rotherham? He has offers from Championship and top end league 1 clubs?


10 May 2012 21:24:53
Norwich to make a move for:
Rodriguez (Burnley) £4M
C Davies (Birmingham) £2 - £3.5M
Naughton (Spurs) Loan for another season
R Williams (McBoro) £4M
M Phillips (Blackpool) £3M
Eagles (Bolton) £3 - £4M(17)(28)Burnley have turned down a 5.5m offer already, so im sure they'll accept 1.5m less than that :)They may have turned down more than £4M, but remember papers always inflate fees to make the story sensational, only Burnley and Southampton know the actual amounts that were offered and rejected. The amount they will accept is also dependent on time left on contract, the shorter it is, the less they can expect to get.
Eagles £3-4M - you must be joking he might be worth £1-1.5M topsWe may get naughton, rod has much richer clubs after him. Davies poss, eagles is not in plikinton or bennetts class. Rest int good enoughBurnley's chairman has said we rejected a £5m bid last seasonDavies not leaving bcfcOh and you believe a football chairman's word that he turned down £5M last season do you ? ha ha - I have a very interesting investment opportunity to buy 10 acres of prime real estate for $10K in the Florida everglades if you are interested !


10 May 2012 21:18:33
Mark McGhee is set to use his contacts in order to complete Bristol Rovers' first signing of the summer. He will snap up 19-year oldPolish striker Kamil Kaczmarz, who currently plays for Ruch Chorzow in Poland. He previously had a loan spell in the Polish Division 2 league with LKS Lodz where he scored 18 goals in 26 games. Rovers will snap him up for a small fee of around 40k.(1)(3)Work in a cafe close to the ground, and i saw this lad earlier (strong polish accent) with assistant shaun north with a rovers training top on..


10 May 2012 21:09:27
Gus Poyet is to hold talks next week with Randy Lerner. Aston Villa have targeted the South American to take over when Alex Mcleish gets the sack on Monday morning.(25)(15)Dream on, Villa can't afford to sack him.Villa cant afford to keep him on


10 May 2012 21:03:15
any rotherham united news Ed apart
from signing daniel nardiello?? {Ed025's Note - no mate..(2)(4)


10 May 2012 20:58:34
hi there pompey fans,leeds supporter not sending this message to rub it in im just interested on the opinions from pompey fans .what are jason pearce and joel ward like as players?also which position is joel ward best suited to?he seems to play all over the good luck for next season pompey.(6)(3)Sour grapesWorth the money u paid, but if your thinking of fighting for promotion next season I can think of better players out there. They were regular starters for us and look where we ended up!! Even without the -10. Pearce is good in the air but struggles against pace and often gets caught out. Ward is a decent prospect but like I said theres better players at this level u could of got.From what ive seen i think their really good, and personally i would play him in midfield, eventhough he can play as a defender at times. And thanksTop class, 100% triers, never give up the fight. Pearce is tough and straightforward, will make tackles and win headers all day long. Ward shares some of these characteristics but can play a bit more. Can play in defence, out wide or in the middle of midfield. He is a good box to box player but I think he sees his long term career as a defender. Good business by Leeds and as a Pompey fan, sad to see either leave. Best of luck to them though.


10 May 2012 20:56:01
Curtis Davies deal to Norwich City is 90% completed(20)(16)How many centre backs do norwich need?! they hav around 7 (at a guess) already so i doubt they ll sign anotherNo way not this early on, he said he isn't leaving Birmingham and Norwich have enough defendersI believe Norwich will buy another center back during the summer because I believe he will let Ward and Barnett go but offer Whitbread a new 2 year contract, and look to add one more CB for cover.
Lambert will look to make Ryan Bennett and Daniel Ayala his 1st choice CB paring next season, both in their early 20's with bags of potential for the future.


10 May 2012 20:53:36
Portsmouth are set to lose out on striker Izale McLeod and four players are very close to leaving Fratton Park.
McLeod is set to sign a one year deal with Werder Bremen in Germany after impressing the Bundesliga side in a training session this week.
QPR are keen on bagging defender Joel Ward in a £500,000 deal that could take the former Bournemouth man to London on a three year deal.
Dave Kitson is also set to leave Pompey to join Ipswich. Manager Paul Jewell is wanting new attacking reinforcements and sees the 32 year old as the right man.
Another set to leave the League 1 club is Greg Halford. The former Colchester defender is set to sign a two year deal with Crystal Palace, in a transfer worth £200,000.
Finally, Israeli defender Ben Haim will sign a three year deal with Scottish champions Celtic.(3)(22)


10 May 2012 20:49:17
Portsmouth will have new owners in place before the football league annual meeting on the 2nd june. Two very interested buyers one of which i have been told is looking very promising. Rumour is Michael Appleton will be given 5 million to spend and will only have to sell 1 maybe 2 more players of his current squad, this is only to keep the club afloat until 2nd June those 2 players are likely to be Liam Lawrence and Hayden Mullins. PUP PPU(2)(30)And now back to reality! Pompey are still no where near being taken over. All the players still have to go.Read the bbc website trevor what his name said ur in danger of going bust by end of the month at the football leagues egmBye byeLove it how people think pompey will fold i know they wont, reality check southampton will go down next year :)First of all, I very much doubt an owner would buy a club worth a few million, chuck £60+million at it to wipe the debt. AND give £5million transfer money (in league 1? LMAO) to a club that barely gets enough attendance to pay half the support staff. Really you pompey fans are ridiculousI think some Pompey fans need a reality check! Alot of them just still dont get it. You might not fold, but theres a very good chance you will.Portsmouth have no chance of being brought and will be liquadated on 4th JuneKeep the banter coming love it ^^ play up pompey!!Not Play up Pompey just PAY up PompeySorry for Pompy fans, I know from experience that these things always go down to the wire. Only at the very last minute will a deal come through if it does at all. Here's hopingMore comments from people who do not understand what they are talking about! - The strategy for Pompey, like every other club in administration, is to agree a CVA. In effect their £60m debt will be reduced to somehing like 15p in the pound. i.e. to £9m. The remaining parachute payment from the Premier League will then cover this lower debt figure. So, whoever buys the club would essentially buy it debt free. Why this as opposed to liquidation? If liquidated, parachute money is no longer paid out by the Prem and all players contracts are void, so no money would be received from their sales. So about £20m would be lost with the only offsetting value being the worth of the stadium which the council has designated for sports use only i.e. can not be 'developed' at least for a considerable number of years if not for ever. So, do you get it now?? That's why Portsmouth Football Club will be bought and why the right owner can rebuild and make it profitable.So despite the previous two owners making financial promises they couldnt keep, Portsmouth fans STILL get excited at yet another take over rumour by an unknown. Deja Vu!Pompey had already agreed a CVA in their last Admin stint, and had their huge debt reduced..However they didnt make a single payment and now that CVA agreement is null and void. Now they have to try to agree a CVA 2 which would include the old debts with the new so the old debts will get even less this time round. All of this has to be agreed by the creditors which wont be straight forward. Saying whoever buys the club will get it debt free is stupid. The club have cheated so many compaines, people and CHARITIES out of alot of money..Even the administrator has said this week liquidation is still likely and the fans takeover could be the only feesable option, but they are falling very short with that too. It will go down to the wire but its a much much bigger mess than what most Pompey fans realise, most just dont get it.


10 May 2012 20:49:00
Leicester City have confirmed the signing of 19 year old striker Jacob Blyth from Leamington. The striker who plays for Leamington in the South Premier division scored 17 goals and goes into Leicester's development team.(13)(1)I was speaking to him on facebook hes so happy he said he will probably be in the U21s then he is going to build his way into the 1st team


10 May 2012 20:46:54
southampton are preparing a double swoop for BCFC Mutch and Redmond - rumoured 8m(18)(7)Didn't Manchester City want Redmond for £15m? so why would he go to Southampton for less than £8m? if you are going to post anything on here at least make it convincing if your going to lie.He isnt lying, it came from one of those "Agents" on Twitter...So if anyone is lying its that guy not the poster


10 May 2012 20:46:24
MK Dons will bid £200k for Stuart Beavon of Wycombe(12)(6)


10 May 2012 20:43:46
Swindon are set to complete the singing of three people in the next three days but are also set to lose out on two other.
The first is thought to be Walsall striker Ryan Jarvis. The 25 year old is set to cost the club a nominal fee and will sign a two year deal.
Secondly, Nigerian forward Kelvin Etuhu has been told by his club Portsmouth that he will be available as a free agent and will sign a one year deal at Town.
Finally, Notts County striker Lee Hughes will be the 'marquee' signing for Paulo Di Canio's side as he aims to bring in full houses every week. Hughes will sign a two year deal.
Former Derby players Lee Holmes and Jay McEveley have both turned down permanent deals with the club after their loan spells. Holmes is very close to signing for York City as he wants to stay closer to home and full back McEveley will sign a two year deal with Rotherham United as he would like to still live in South Yorkshire.(4)(21)You know Hughes is 36 and still has a year left on his deal at Notts County?Are you having a laugh Holmes to York City and McCleverly to fat boy Evans team i dont think so. Get a life you person who wrote this.No way will Di Canio sign Lee Hughes he is despised by Town fans and he's old and there are better players out there than having that person at our club.Lee Holmes is thought to have second thoughts at being at Swindon and is open to offers....but no way is York City on his horizon. Quality player and at least div 2 and probably Div 1


10 May 2012 20:22:01
Michael Dubbery looks likely to join Northampton Town from Oxford as a replacement for outgoing loanee Clarke Carlisle.(4)(9)


10 May 2012 20:20:28
Leicester are looking to bring in Southampton winger/striker Guly Do Prado for £3.5 million.

Rumours also around about Nile Ranger moving to the foxes for £2 million.(11)(16)For 3.5 million I'll pay his way thereDoubt that is true, Guly do prado is like 30 something and hes rubbish why would we sign him for nearly £4m pound thats just madness get your facts right.Guly is not rubbish he's scored 11 goals playing mainly at right midfield he's just not consistent but when he's on form he's a very good player. Problem is alot of saints fans don't rate him but that's mainly fans who don't watch him enoughLeicester have so much money, not an object. Nigel Pearson needs a brazilian ;)Do Prado is out of contract in the summer, so 3.5 million would be stupidity, then again this is Leicester fansDo Prado is out of contract NEXT summer. He wont be leaving Saints this coming season anyway, he will get his chance in the Premier League.That makes it 7 now for the number of strikers Leicester are supposed to be signing, should be plenty of goals at the crisp bowl.


10 May 2012 20:19:53
arsenal are looking at valencia left back Jeremy Mathieu to bolster their defensive options, Mathieu thinks hes more likely to get more game time for les bleus if hes with a bigger club(9)(4)Bigger club? better stay in valencia then


10 May 2012 20:01:51
Carlisle have made an approach for Wycombe Wanderers striker Stuart Beavon after he turned down the offer of a new contract (Source - member of Wycombe's board, 100% legit).(3)(4)Like they would be so stupid as to let something like that slip .....


10 May 2012 19:07:13
Altricham striker Damien Reeves will be joining Doncaster Rovers in the summer and also Fabien Robert is to come back on loan!(13)(4)


10 May 2012 18:57:50
Walsall looking to trial Ryan Moss from
Dorchester of Blue Square South(6)(3)He doesn't play for them anymore!He has been playing for AFC Totton however he is not under contract and would be an added bonus to anyone's team at that level. He has a real hunger and given that he is not that tall it is a real surprise in the amount of headers he wins.Would expect him to go to Havant & Waterlooville given his friendship with Stuart Ritchie and that he has just signed on to manage the Hawks on a 2 year deal.


10 May 2012 18:33:03
DONE DEAL: Daniel Nardiello signs for Rotherham on a 2 year deal, manager Steve Evans hopes to have another signing wrapped up before the end of the weekend.(18)(7)Its meant 2 be lionel ainsworth cause hes just been released by shrewsbury


10 May 2012 17:49:01
Luke freeman to burnley for an undisclosed fee(16)(18)


10 May 2012 17:46:08
Coventry to be taken over by Chines investers.(11)(16)You mean Chinese Investors the amount of people that can't spell on here is mind boggling.What will they be investing in? A £60m pound debt and no revenue streams apart form league 1 gate receipts!


10 May 2012 17:32:05

Dur!Who isnt out of contract??Before you post stupid answers are we all meant to be looking into cloud cuckoo land to guess which player your talking about. God i cant believe some people dont mention players names - Wake up


10 May 2012 17:14:28
Norwich to move for Redmond and Davies(20)(14)You wish! Brum were quoting £10m for Redmond in January. Like you can raise even£7m? LOLIt's not fee's that are our problem mate just wages and 'BRUM?' need the money cos they're skint soooo....Birmingham aren't skint, (not a brum Birmingham fan either). They are in a similar situation to Norwich. Enough money to be average in the leagues they are in, but need outside investment to achieve more.Lol brum not skint, admin at start of next seasonBirmingham players will be sold at less than they would like, their backer was arrested for fraud and his funds frozen, so yes now they will have to offload many of the big wage players, parachute payment is reduced, revenue is reduced, and to avoid administration they will sell.
£10M Redmond? get real no one will pay that for him, Birmingham can quote what they like, just like I can offer a 15yr Fiat Uno on E Bay for £100K, but no ones going to buy it.


10 May 2012 17:05:38
Dannynardiello to sign for rotherham on 2 year deal from exeter. Millers also in talks with Lionel Ainsworth and Nicky Wroe(13)(4)


10 May 2012 17:05:26
Wolves looking into swapping Matt jarvis for gary hooper from celtic(2)(33)Lol at that jarvis might as well stay at wolvesSo Hooper would go to the Champiuonship when he can join the Premiership?
You Wolves fans have got to get used to the fact you are now SECOND tier.Jarvis might as well play in the chumpionshipLol,where do you find themLol hooper is only good in spl cause its a rubbish leagueCan't se any wolves fan for a second saying this we do not want or need hooper,yeah jarvis might be off in the summer but he wont be going far ..!!!Jelavic played in the SPL and Hooper outscored him, Hooper played in the Championship and outscored 35mil Andy Carrol.Lol "Hooper is only good in spl cos its a rubbish league". Jelavic scored 17 in spl then vent to Everton and continued the same goalscoring form


10 May 2012 16:59:36
So if your a good friend of Luke Freeman then you should know if he lives at home with his parents or not !!(1)(6)He does,but being a big boy and all he wants to move out and to a decent team.Counts Burnley out then!

10 May 2012 16:34:36
Hearing from quite a few Charlton fans that they're interested in Steve Jones(3)(8)


10 May 2012 16:31:43
Dani Pacheco moving back to Norwich City(5)(12)Definitely makes sense, he was very popular when he was here on loan and he loves the club. He will also be able to add a bit of foreign flair which we need and he's also mates with Ayala so maybe that'll help both of them settle in well and therefore we'll get the most out of both of them.Totally agree just player we've missed all season if anyone


10 May 2012 16:27:25
Yeovil youth team player Elliott Melish is set to sign a 2 year contract with Manchester United in a deal that could rise to a fee of 2 million pounds.(11)(7)I thought he had a leg crippling injury that would set him back 8 months? are man u prepared for that risk


10 May 2012 16:25:21
Yeovil manager Gary Johnson has expressed an interest in resigning Leister goalkeeper Chris Weale.(9)(2)


10 May 2012 16:15:46
Let me clear things up, Charlton will be one of the teams with the most money, we have two wealthy owners that have hundreds of millions as well as and 'Mr X' owner that is Kevein Cash that has £600-700 million alone for Charlton, it is rubbish that we have to sell, it is just Palace fans trying to ake it look like that Palace have money when infact they do not!(2)(15)We have money, but you're wildly overestimating it mate. We're comfortable but in no way will Cash - a shady character - invest that heavily. He's seeking to invest now, and sell when we're in the Premier League eventually, for a decent profit. So we think.Charlton may be wealthy but that doesn't make them an attractive club to join. Poor club poor fansPalace don't have money, and although I doubt charlton have that much, I am sure it is more than palace...Interesting to see everyone jumping on the Charlton band wagon. Didnt hear you all when in League One.

P.s.:All us Palace fans forgot who you were along time again. Rivals? You must be having a laugh!Charlton are as rich as palace and it's about putting the money in the club not having the money HF05Palace are a club going nowhere and will sell their best players. No ambition, nothing club. Bring on the "ultras" and cheerleaders looooooool joke.GROW UP!No one knows the identity of Charlton's owners, so I dont see how you can say they have £700m. The new fiarplay rules mean that no club can go on a spending spree and go unpunished. So grow up and stop this childish bickering.Under FFP rules, owners/chairmen or investors can only invest a maximum of £6m. So even if your board had billions they are not allowed to invest it. Check out facts before posting.Palace no ambition?? didn't we beat utd at old trafford?Let's be honest, which Palace fan can honestly say they care for Charlton, begging for rivalry."""Under FFP rules, owners/chairmen or investors can only invest a maximum of £6m. So even if your board had billions they are not allowed to invest it. Check out facts before posting."""

That is why ground sponsorship etc has been used to pump money into clubs by owners. I think the £6m limit is borrowing, I could be wrong.


10 May 2012 16:04:32
Crystal Palace will loan Chelsea youngster Nathaniel Chalobah on a season long loan and sign Aleksander Tunchev with Southampton signing Anthony Gardner this summer on a free.(4)(15)Anthony Gardner is not signing for Southampton.Palace fan here, Anthony is out of contract in the summer and wont be signing a new deal. So this is possibleThought Gardner signed a two year contract last summer?


10 May 2012 15:46:43
Norwegian Stalle Solbakken is the shock choice to be the new manager of Wolves. He has come highly recommended by Roy Hodgson one of his former managers. He has had a very succesful spell in charge of Copenhagen in Denmark that led to a less succesful stint in Germany with Cologne. Although this will be a huge risk by the Wolves board they seem keen to give Solbakken a chance in England. You heard it here first. Get your money on this ASAP. Although i do believe the bookies are ahead of the game with this one and his odds have shortened dramatically in the last 24 hrs. {Ed025's Note - he nearly took cologne down mate..(11)(1)Cologne did go downCologne did go down , they also did not even give him s season to prove himself , they gave him no funds to bring in players also.Cologne went through four managers in as many season, the club are in a bad state before he took over.Ed havnt they had like 25 managers in 25 years n that job is poison the amount of problems he had 1 was poldoski weather he was leaving or not 2, 3 was the board im sure theres more but 1 bad spell dont make you a bad manager he wont loads of titles with copenhangen beat ajax n barca in chapions league dont well in norway i think he would be a good choice {Ed003's Note - Really don't know that much about him mate,but you raise good points,I don't know about point 2 that's why it was edited out but thanks for the input}


10 May 2012 16:01:40
Norwich signings:

Done...(10)(21)Oh and Zaha sorryProbably decent targetsYou wish. DoneWe don't have to wish?Naughton will not leave spurs

Northampton town to announce some new signings sometime during June.(7)(4)I think Northampton will be a dark horse in the promotion push next season with Boothroyd in charge along with Rotherham - Rovers - Chesterfield and the teams this season that miss out in the play offs as for Oxford next season will be the same as this season start well and fade away in the last third of the season.

I know from source that WBA have made Nigel Adkins their number one manager choice and he wants the job, only stumbling block is he may have to resign from Southampton to push the move through!(5)(29)Why would he want to go to West Brom? Below average premiership team. May as well stay put with Southampton and see how the season goes. Stupid rumour.Seriously? you have no chance hahaThats hilarious! No way will that happen. He has already stated 2 weeks ago he wants to stay for the long term. Stop smoking that stuff, its bad for you.You can tell when the kids come out from school can't you?
Look a little east of Southampton and you will find your new manager.Dreamers lolMighty Southampton eh? Jokers who do you think you are, ideas above your stationSauce ......urs must be the brown stuff m8 ,,full of itThis won't ever happen. Albion wouldn't go for such an inexperienced manager at this point in time, but I can see why Adkins might jump at the job. Look of Southampton for the new manager? WBA rated Appleton, but he would not be considered for the same reasons that Adkins won't be.I have also heard from sources close to WBA that he would be very interested in the Vaccancy. And believes Southampton will not have the resources to remain in the top flight1. Nigel Adkins would only leave Saints for a far bigger side. West Brom are a few years ahead of Saints, but they aren't a much bigger side and they won't be breaking out of mid-table any time soon.

2. Nigel Adkins is a man of principle. He didn't resign from Scunthorpe to take the Saints job and he won't resign from Saints either.

3. Enjoy negotiating with Nicola Cortese

4. Take the m27 eastbound. The manager there will be grateful for being rescued from that impossible job.1,2,3,4 you are completely wrong. Adkins is on the way out, strange move I agree. West Brom are light years ahead of Southampton, and I am a neutral Portsmouth fanAnyone agreeing with this post is simply expressing their ignorance of Southampton's position. 'Will not have the resources to remain in top flight'.. Incidentally, Albion's highest home league gate in the Prem last season was less than Southampton's average in the Championship.We dont want adkins I've watched southampton play a few times this year and it ain't preety!


10 May 2012 15:46:28
Krasic is a done deal. Great friends with Anton. Can't wait. URZ(5)(10)To which club? {Ed025's Note - maybe qpr?Why would he go to qpr a team who will be down near the bottom again when he could go to spurs arsenal or liverpoolHe's on about Reading, and he's another dreamer. I wish it was over 24's only on here!!Dear god, the guy hasnt even taken over Reading yet and already all these signings are going to happen!Since when was a 25th birthday the dawn of maturity?


10 May 2012 15:44:55
teams to go down next season my VIEW 3d from bottom will be wigan then reading then at the bottom will be the mighty southampton(7)(26)I agree ^^Reading and Southampton not favourites to go down. Favourites to go down will be teams who tread water in the prem and don't invest in their squads (e.g. Bolton Blackburn and Wolves this year).

When will people recognise that when teams get promoted from the championship (or any league) they already have a very strong backbone to their squads that you need to get promoted and win consistently, they have vast finances for investment, maximum capacity support generated from promotion, confidence and momentum.

I am not saying any newly-promoted team will stay up, but to immediately write off 2/3 of them is massively ignorant given recent seasons promoted teams have had.Now this guys really bright, isn't he? All Premiership clubs to trim first team squad to 25 and many weeks before we know which 25 will be with which club yet this guy (or maybe Mystic Meg) knows how it will all pan out? Example: RVP moves from Arsenal, and a mass exodus follows, but this guy can predict all this?
Get real.WOW i thought people would wait untill at least pre-season to say Wigan are going to be relegated, AGAIN!

Get it into your head they aint going down!Plus we all now know that it is impossible to relegate wigan. ps, werent southampton supposed to get relegated last season?WOW are bubble has burst not even started yet


10 May 2012 15:37:40
Blackburn keeper Paul Robinson my cousin, just got told my dad yesterday that roy hodgson had called him and wanted a meeting.. and with it being 7/1 on betfair.. i know where i'd stick a fiver or two.

100% no joke(2)(19)Since he's your cousin can you ask him would he rejoin Leeds united cause lonergan and Robinson would be an amazing goalkeeper line up :-)If it was true you would put all of your money on it


10 May 2012 15:15:29
Ipswich defender Aaron Cresswell has agreed to join championship rivals Millwall.(2)(15)Should join morecombe more his level uselessHow is he useless?

He had a superb season, you don't know what you are talking about.

Not to mention he has recently signed a long term contract.Cresswell brilliant he was by far one of our best players this seasonHa ha very amusingNot useless a very good prospect in our rubbish team and no way would he go to Millwall and they could not afford the 2m plus he's now worth


10 May 2012 15:10:05
Just been up at the Mad Stad shop and saw Cameron Jerome! Very excited if we could pull that off!!(7)(10)We could do much better then him. No thanks.No you haven't, I work In the shop and was there all day today and no one even mentioned his name


10 May 2012 15:09:43
Charlton are looking to sign some pace/skill in the midfield. Chris Powell has been looking at Joe Cole; Joe Cole has stated that he 'wants to return to first team football in London'. Liverpool are asking for around £6million; Chris Powell has been pondering about making an offer, which he feels that Joe can fulfil that price-tag. Joe Cole has said that 'I will take a wage-cut to play first-team football'. This wage-cut is said to be 33.3%. Good reliable source.(1)(31)Oh dear, some deluded charlton fans on hereI apologise for this particular deluded guy. My word it's... NO. We aren't going to sign anyone who'll see us as a step down.Hes on about 80k at liverpool so you re saying you d b able to pay around 53.6k a week? wowHave u bin on them fuuney fags again chalton will strugle joe cole is playin CL football with lille some people on hear are in dream land wake upAnd the fact that Chris Powell is still on his holiday has no bearing? Admins pls stop this idiot.

Bristol City to sign stephen mcmanus from middlesborough(14)(2)Hope so. great player!There seems to be a phantom poster who reckons Bristol City have found a new sheik to back them. Apparently they are buying everyone.Dont worry about our finances little man people think they know so much about bristol city must b a poor little gashead


10 May 2012 14:59:20
Any Oxford rumours in or out Ed? {Ed025's Note - no mate..(3)(0)Yep, you're the smallest club in the Thames Valley. Even Oxford City are catching you up now! LOL

I know 12 Oxford fans that have bought season tickets at Reading for next season. Jumping ship and you canny blame them! lolAh a Swindon Town supporter, most likely....Well, hope your investors dont get fed up with you lot because when they do, and they will, you will have mega problems financially. Shame!The old Swindon in debt chestnut!! Sorry mate, the Swindon Board are not short of a pennty or two and the parent Company has already swallowed up last season debt!! Now we come to Oxfords money it or not there is and AWFUL lot rumours coming to light that there are REAL problems behind the scenes, You have some serious money issues. You also have a fanbase split over your Manager despite the fact he took you back to league football, the problem being that many Oxford fans still believe they should still be a major football force...the truth is you are now a small club, Wilder is doing a good job in difficult circumstances and this season he pulled off some great signings...however the plan has failed and you are now going to struggle, Not having a laugh just saying as it is. Kassam will remain stubborn over your 3 stand stadium which will only make things worse. If Wilder keeps you any where near the mid table again next season he will have done another good job...and acheived the boards aim of staying in the it or not that is the sole ambition of your club at the moment, another drop into the non league could spell the end of your club. Mind you, if it happens you could always merge with Oxford City...they seem to be moving in the right direction!!

I'm a leeds fan and would like to know how likely George Boyd is to join Leeds? I know he is on the transfer list but not sure if there is any rumour on your end which club he will go to.(5)(14)Terrible player, so hopefully this will happen.He is coming, We think its gonna be announced JulyWe havent been linked anywhere that I've seen with anyone from Peterborough, Boyd included. I agree that this is strange, as they have some very good players looking for a way out, of whom Boyd is just one. Lewis, Jones, Taylor, Ajosé and McCann could all leave London Road.
wallyHeard here around boro that boyd is interesting leeds,lewis and jones are out of contract. No great loss,both seem to have gone backwards. Ajose,bad attitude apparently. Taylor,wont sign new contract,wants to play in prem. WBA are supposed to be chasing him.

Brighton to sign jonjo shelvey and Raheem Sterling on loan from Liverpool {Ed025's Note - rubbish!(6)(25)


10 May 2012 13:52:44
Reading takeover by the Thames Sport Investment group halted after it emerges Zingarevich only has £30mill which is not considered enough by Madejski. Madejski was initially promised Anton's father, Boris, would be involved. However, due to the recession, Zingarevich senior has lost over 15% of his wealth, and so no longer wishes to throw money at his son's favourite football team.

RP(11)(10)That might be true but for the fact that TSI is a group of investors so it's not just Zongarevich Snr and Jnr. The hold up is due to The Premier League taking their time due to the Portamouth situation. They want to make sure they are the right people.Also Anton's favourite team is Zenit. He was educated in Reading which is his link to the town.Oh dear!
Perhaps it would have been wise to wait until the whole deal was complete?HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHow would the Reccession effect Boris? He is a russian billionaire. If Anton has 30 million in the bank then you need to check again. Anton is a private investor so it will be near impossible to know his wealth. Reports say he is worth 500 million. I bet your just a jealous fan.Unfortunately not true for all the people saying this, I recently read an article on how the Zingarevich family has been doing well in the recession. The deal is still going through.


10 May 2012 14:58:08
Watford are going to try their hardest to sign Jonathon Hogg, who had a season long loan from Aston Villa.(1)(8)Poorly checked facts - Hogg joined Watford last summer for an undisclosed fee on a 3 year deal, so he wnot be coming back to the Villa.He signed from Villa last summer you numpty! "Hogg joined Football League Championship club Watford for an undisclosed fee on 27 August 2011, signing a three-year contract"Can anyone shed any light on the constant rumours of Ben Marshall leaving leicester due to a fall out with the manager ?Watford permantly signed him :LThis is an ongoing joke on one of the Watford forums. Hilarious isn't it! NOT.


10 May 2012 14:57:05
Watford will be stepping up their interest in Wolves midfielder Micahel Kightly, who is out of contract in the summer. Kightly is holding out for a premiership move, though.(4)(14)Wrong wrong wrong. he is not out of contract in the summer.Yep, next summer he's out of contract..also he wouldn't go to Watford, he's quality.Hmm bit hard when its next summer n he will get offered a new contract n hes already said hes staying no matter whatSo why is he slumming it in Wolverhampton - get used to it guys - you are in the same division as Watford nowYes, he is quality, that's why he will be leaving rudderless Wolves.He was rumoured to be heading to West Brom with jerome thomas and cash ,that was before hodgson left though.


10 May 2012 14:56:08
None of you read Sky Sports I presume.. Peterborough aren't extending McCann's contract at the end of the season..(1)(3)We do, we just don't give a crap about PeterboroughIf you didn't give a crap about Peterborough why would you read their SkySports article in the first place? Think about what you say before you try and get cocky little boy.


10 May 2012 14:41:28
according to a couple of agents on twitter southampton are preparing a double swoop for birminghams nathan redmond and jordan mutch(6)(14)As good as that would be, I doubt we would be willing to pay what Birmingham would want for Redmond.Oh come on, Redmond will go much higher than Southampton he is quality! I would love to have him at the Villa lolSeen the same tweets. Good signings if true.What do agents do?
Try to get their clients placed in top clubs, especially when their current ones are in financial difficulties.
Like the BBC, they are trying to make the news, rather than report it. Doesn't mean that Saints have any interest at all.Villa are a great club arnt they look where u are in the league u couldnt afford redmond where as saints could what does that tell u enough said worst and most boring club in the midlands
coyrI've heard that SFC will table around 10m for the bothYou can have jordan Mutch his passing is shocking even for the championship!


10 May 2012 14:41:05
Middlesbroughs boss Tony Mobray has been spotted at Bristol Rovers this week. Its reported that he is interested in there goalkeeper and midfielder Carrayol.(6)(8)He was at the Dagenham game to watch the Daggers keeper and Carayol and Woodards from Rovers.


10 May 2012 14:34:00
I love all the jealous fans on this page who consistantly put Southampton down. To all you that told us we were a flash in the pan last year the last word is ours. It's called Promotion. Adkins will sign whom he thinks is right for the club. It will be done behind closed doors. Oh and we did it all on a shoestring compared with other clubs whinging on this page!! COYR!(21)(12)Well said mate Southampton best side along
with Reading that i saw last season both
deserved promotion and good luck next season .barnsley fc fan

Barnsley FC FanAgreed. We've had 7 years of c and worked very hard and stuck by our club through it all. No-one is going to successfully burst our bubble so we'll continue to sing, back our teamand be
positive. No apologies.Shoestring o.O you are in the top five for the most spent -_-He will signe who he is able to signe with the limited number of players willing to come to the club .he wont get the players he wants .he will have to pick the best from a bad bunch and no other prem club wantsPost above - Shouldnt you be doing your homework instead of being on here? Is it English homework by any chance?Top five spenders maybe but remember we sold Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for 12 mil raising to 15 mil so yes we spent less then we had come in.
Dont get me wrong would of love to of seen Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stay, in fact there might be a slight chance now we are in the prem we might get him back on loan.Didnt Southampton have a loan of over £33m wiped out by Markus Liebherr 's wife when he died. Most (if not all) of your players are on top Championship wages, which will now increase and start you back on the road to financial ones jealous......we just dont like bigheads^What a muppet. How can you use unsubstantiated rubbish to try and put Saints down then claim Saints are bigheads?!
We got a PRE-EXISTING loan wiped out from when we went into administration years ago and hit rock bottom. We then underwent financial re-structuring to ensure we were financially stable. Kindly the Lieberhhs allowed us a clean slate to start from, but didn't irresponsibly invest in us and put us on a road to "financial ruin" as you put it.

For our league position we actually had the relative LOWEST cost per player in wages for our position in the league. Our wages averaged mid-table championship because we purchased the majority of our players when we were a mid league 1 club, when we had the hindsight to purchase championship quality players and build to get to the prem from an early stage, thus avoiding having to massively invest and bring in loads of players this year.

And people saying we had one of the top five spenders need an education. The important fact is NET TRANSFERS. We had the best net transfers in the division and ended up around +£10million for our transfer activities in our promotion season.

And people saying we won't have any attraction in the transfer market are talking out their ae. I'd rather go to a club with some of the best, if not the best, training facilities and stadium in the country. With stadium sell outs at every game, sensible financial investment into the club, ambition to get into Europe and the best youth academy in the country looking for a stable future. When what do rival clubs offer? Languishing in the lower reaches of the prem, no real investment, st facilities, half full stadiums, no long term ambitions. You do the math and you will realise Southampton is a far more attractive offer than a lot of prem clubs. Not to mention we have one of the best scouting networks and chief executives in the country who will get good deals and get quality players that no other club has even looked at.

I'm not even being arrogant, it's the truth. Who knows where we will finish next season, could get relegated or could get top half. But we have as good of a chance as any club outside the top 10 in the prem of staying up.Southampton spent a lot more than Reading, who also had to sell their top players in Shane Long and Matt Mills.OMG Saints had a 5 year plan and would always spend what they thought it would take to get us to the Premier league.
Markus Liebherr along with Cortese are the best things to happen at Saints for a long time. Cortese is a very clever man which is why AC Milan recently wanted his services, he will not spend any money we have not got, we have been in the ST before and there is no way Cortese will allow that to happen again. We are not big headed about getting promoted, just happy.
Anyway why are you Pompey fans so concerned about what state our club is in. I think you have your own club to be concerned about, just concentrate on that.Southampton spent a lot more than Reading, who also had to sell their top players in Shane Long and Matt Mills.
in the past we have always had to sell our top players ie..Bale, Wallcott etc... However AOC we did not have to sell money was the main factor this time which is why we were able to hold out for the best price possible. He choose to leave.
We continue to develope top youth players and have got some top ones coming through again Luke Shaw, James Ward-Prowse, Calum Chambers our aim is to hold on to these players."Southampton spent a lot more than Reading, who also had to sell their top players in Shane Long and Matt Mills"

The only way you can quantify the influx of player quality compared to the outflux of player quality is judging the net transfer activity. Southampton had the highest net transfer gain in the league - we sold the most compared to the money we spent. Reading sold a couple of decent players but no one outstanding and then brought in similar transfer value to Southampton (Saints approx £1million more, which is nothing nowadays) but Southampton sold £10million more than Reading. So shut up with your moaning about Reading spending so little yet selling so much because you no nothing about that, it is what Saints have done for the past 7 years, selling over £50million and signing £10million back.


10 May 2012 14:04:35
Crystal Palace target Jose Zamora has expressed his desire to move to England paving the way for the Real Madrid player to move to Selhurst Park this summer.

Coventry striker Gary McSheffrey is also attracting the club, the striker is keen to remain a championship player and his future could lie at SE25.

Former Crystal Palace academy product Daniel Johnson who moved to Aston Villa could also return to the club on a free transfer as he has been deemed surplus to requirements.(4)(5)Mcsheffrey is a Coventry fan born round the corner from the ground and has already stated he is staying as he wants to lead the club back up. He will also be captain he won't be leaving.Johnson is top quality.
Won't join Crystal Palace! pfftWhat makes you think he wont join Palace.. have you seen the youngest they have and are bringing through? Jealousy will get you no where.Johnson signed a new one year deal in March, so why would he be available on a free get real + massive palace fan and have never heard of this kid

'Apparently' Derby County are looking to sign Joel Lynch from Nottingham Forest for a free transfer in the summer for cover in the defense.(8)(13)Stupid derby fans.

do you honestly believe lynch would 1. come to you and 2. be a back up??Cover?? Yeah right, he'll walk straight into your first team if you were fortunate enough to get him!Think I'd rather have Darren Moore back. A lot of your team seem to be leaving on a free, may be they've seen the light. saying that you'll just throw more money at it!


10 May 2012 09:57:19
Lewis Grabban to Peterborough. Taylor going to watford so DFerguson needs some strike power. Borough preparing to pay 1mil for him(10)(11)I admit that I would LOVE Taylor to join us, and it would be a decent move for him... but can't help thinking that another Championship team would offer him more wages. Fingers crossed....If Boyd is going to Leeds for 1. Then Taylor is worth 2.5 for a starting price!Ant going to happen. Posh have about 2 to 3 mill to spend to try and get between 12 and 14 players as they only have 8 first teams players left after a big clear out!U can have him straight awayTaylor has one year left on his contract. No one will pay anywhere near £2.5m for him.

Not saying Watford will get him but I doubt we'd offer more than £750k - simply because we cannot afford more.


10 May 2012 12:32:58
Coventry - With pressure growing on the club, a number of players are set to leave. Clingan has rejected a new deal and Cranie is likely to do the same.

The Council are refusing to negotiate a rent reduction with the club for the Ricoh and the club cannot submit accounts until the rent is reduced. As a result, Coventry remain under a transfer embargo (doesnt affect sales).

The Council leader has demanded that Coventry reduce its wage bill first. Consequently, the entire squad has been made available. Gael Bigirimana will leave for Burnley for £500,000 and Conor Thomas will leave for a similar sum to Ipswich. Richard Keogh is a target for Bolton for £1 million.

High wage earners like Gary McSheffrey have been told they can leave for free, if they find a club willing to sign them.(9)(15)Richard keogh is going to join ipswich deal set to done next week


10 May 2012 12:23:14
Everton will be forced to sell players again this summer, with Rodwell and Barkley the likely players to be sold, in order to generate funds for Moyes.

Everton need to sell a player a year to service the debt and to generate further revenue, more than one player will be sold on.

The club think that significant revenue can be realised from the sale of 2 young talents, sufficient revenue to appease Moyes and to allow him to spend between £5-10 million in the summer(13)(7)This is untrue, without any sales, moyes has been told he will have a 20 mill transfer budget. {Ed025's Note - who told you that?Absolute nonsense. Even the most optimistic Everton fan knows there is no money to spend. {Ed025's Note - well...very littleTo the original poster if you sell 2 first teamers to generate some mone to buy new players, surely you need to buy two more to replace those you sold so instead of buying 2 now you need four. four players with only 5-10 million to spend your not going to be getting the kind of players your losing! think about what your posting

tommoThe 20mill funding was the price for moyes staying. knowing the man, if the club do not deliver, he would walk, but he will get the funds.


10 May 2012 12:27:07
Spurs have conceded that they will lose either Bale or Modric this summer. Redknapp is keen to retain both players but both players have indicated that they want to leave White Hart Lane.

Levy will play hard ball with any potential club but the realisation is that the sale of one will raise a huge sum of money for Harry to spend over the summer.

Bale is known to want to leave for Spain and Modric is keen on a move to Chelsea.(21)(13)Modric has not spoken since last summer about his desire to leave, you reckon he'll go chelski when they lose to munichComplete nonsense, Spurs have conceded nothing of the sortNeither will go to London clubs. Chelsea aren't looking attractive to play for unless they make several big signings this summer. Arsenal won't splash out on the transfer fee for either.

Only clubs that can finance the deal and attract either are Manchester clubs or Spanish clubs (real and barca). Can see modric going to spain, can see bale staying in the UK.

So small number of potential clubs to move to for me...
Man City and United for Bale
Real and Barca for Modric

If they move anywhere.. which I doubt they will.


10 May 2012 12:19:49
Millwall are said to be interested in signing Crystal Palace central midfielder Mile Jedinak, Kenny Jackett is looking to provide cover for Abdou, Trotter and Wright
No chance.Jog on!
Haha jedinak is probably better than all 3! Never gonna happen.

Jedinak better then them 3 please he would struggle to make the bench at millwall with the 3 of them better then him and creating a lot of intrest from premier league in trotters case. Palace fans need to get out of bed and relise they are more delegation candidates rather then promotion(2)(4)

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbary has
set his sights on making Southampton
man Guly Do Prado his first summer. He
is expected to be worth around 2 million
pounds. They can expect competition
from Nottingham Forest for the striker
who netted 15 goals in a promotion
winning season.(5)(21)£2m?! When do you want him delivered?I think guly de prado is immense however we have no moneyWe'll throw in Barnard, Chaplow and Holmes for that money too!Forest havent got £20 to spend on a player nevermind £2m. Do you actually keep up to date with football NEWS.?Sorry, but this one will be a non starter.

Part of Guly's problem this year is he is way ahead on many of the Saints team. Fans either love him or hate him, and a lot of the criticism that he has received has been overly harsh. Adkins however can see that he has the quality to play in the prem, and I am certain the he'll do well playing with better quality players that we'll hopefully bring in this summer.I'll drive him up there


10 May 2012 10:16:33
Burnley hope to complete signing of Marc Pugh this week for 350,000(12)(3)350k for pugh youd better make it at least 500k or is mitchell on 20% mitchell said were not a selling club now so eddie give mark the 4k a week mate

Sky State Charlton Are Ready To Offer Francois Zoko A contract when his contract at Carlisle ends Very Soon They Also Say He Rejected Several Re-newels From Carlisle.

And Dont get critical Its A Good Source Look It Up Yourself.

Yes, he is on free transfer.
Yes, clubs will be interested.
But no, he hasn't rejected any offers of a renewed contract from Carlisle.

They offered him one on Sunday, and negotiations are yet to start. He's given Carlisle first billing, and has talked to no other clubs. He is Carlisle's to lose.


Hang on, what? Zoko is publically quoted as saying that he offered to send clubs videos of him playing to coax them into offering him a deal at the end of the season. If that's not a player in dialogue with other clubs, then I'm a fish with legs.

Sorry, what quote is this? He never made any public comments about that video on YouTube; it was his agent who posted it. Zoko himself has revealed to the News & Star that he has not, as of yet, talked to any other clubs over a contract offer. Believe him or not, that's the only info availbale. End of.(7)(1)

According to the Daily Mail, Leeds are set to sign Joel Ward, while Cardiff are interested in Aidy White, although why he'd want to join them after their humiliation in the Play-Offs, I can't understand.

So all you Ipswich fans insisting that you're signing Ward.. bad luck, i guess.
wally(13)(2)Its all RUBBISH I have just looked at the daily mail and their is NOTHING.Its in Portsmouths local paperIt is ive just looked onlineStill better than being at Leeds I guess...Crap right wing news paper, i dislike ipswich but would go there before leeds, everyday week. Like uncle ken can not stand warnockThe Daily Mail, really! Spend your money on the Beano, its a better comic.10 May 2012 18:22:13

well, here it is. tbf, this is the only place I've seen it, but its there in writing
wallyBest mates with pearce seems to be the deal breakerAll us Ipswich fans who have been saying he won't sign for us or he would have in Jan are wrong are we I see. thanks for correcting us now can you stop going for all out targets please


10 May 2012 10:12:15
longshot question but is there any rumours on what sponsors and style kit walsall might have next season(1)(6)Red and White?I heard that Walsall are that poor they're having to ask Willenhall Town if they can strip share!

Blackbury Rovers are to have
a drastic overhaul of the playing
squad this summer.

With up to 8-10 players going to be
sold or leave on a free.

With Blackburn ready to raid all the
Championship clubs for there key
players to give then a chance to
return back to the PL first time of
asking.(8)(21)The fact that you don't know the names of said 'key players' and the clubs that they play for shows your ignorance. With that attitude, it becomes obvious why people are saying the fans got that club relegated, not the manager or board.
wallyBlackburn going to raid all other Championship clubs?? Sorry but they may be going to recieve parachute payments but that will go to the Chicken you think the are going to start bank rolling them now?? Why not when the club needed it? why not when a certain letter dropped on their desks begging them to help? Sorry but it's more likely a slip down the leagues beckon for the one time should not have been allowed to happen but it question is how big are the gates going to be?? It was never because of a big fan base that took them to the summit was it? it was because of one mans love for his team.....something Venkys have clearly not got!! Any one who thinks that bouncing straight back to the Prem is a given is in for a massive shock.Rovers will promote from the youth and reserve teams next season,its clear what venky's plans are,sell the best players for a tidy profit,let the out of contract players leave(hoilett etc)to massively reduce the wage bill and swallow the parachute money for the next few seasons,i can really see this once proud club dropping through the divisions.Totally agree, Blackburn owners do appear to be asset stripping the club, they already got rid of Samba and Jones for big money, so expect some big outgoing sales during the summer including Hanley, Ollson, Pedersen etc with little or nothing being spent on new recruits. They will let Steve Kean continue with his positive upbeat statements about getting in the right new players with experience to add to the young players to get them promoted back to premier. What he really means is players who are out of contract with other clubs who may agree to sign on free transfers, because they have not received any other offers.
He is the perfect fall guy for the owners, promotes them as great owners and always puts a positive spin on every disaster. Mr Kean please respect yourself and the fans wishes and resign your position


10 May 2012 08:59:02
Blackpools Tom ince to Leicester {Ed015's Note - Why , he is on the verge of prem football.}(2)(41)Also with prem teams interested...leicester clearly haven't learnt their lesson from last season...Thought he was on a season long loan from liverpool?BehaveNo he is not. Another year in the Championship for him...


10 May 2012 08:54:10
You will see some big movement at swindon

Jonathon Smith
Phil Smith

Murray Ipswich
Marlon Pack Cheltenham
Craig Westcarr Chesterfield
Lee Holmes free
Jay Mckeverly - Free(15)(7)Boring!! As I previously stated..this is just regurgitated commom knowledge. The players going you have mentioned are obvious BUT ONLY IF TOWN CAN OFF LOAD THEM i.e. Magera may take some shifting and Town may have to keep him. Of the players coming in that you mention Holmes and Mceveley are again common knowledge..they have had good loan spells and are now available on free's which is good business for the Town. Marlon Pack has been linked with Town for ages (Especially becasue of his friendship with Matt Ritchie) forgot about a potential season long loan for Bostock......As for the others coming in that you mention...are you just plucking names from fresh air? PDC has said this week "I will make no other decisions on players until I have sat down with the board and discussed all targets..and seeing has the Towns current Chairman has been taken into hospital and is in "severe" pain I'm guessing they have yet to speak. I'm not saying you are wrong but unless you are close freind of PDC (In which case you should be ashamed of yourself as PDC does not want to publicly discuss targets yet) you have no more idea than anyone else. The next few months will be exciting...but please stop indicating you KNOW what will happen..and PLEASE stop stating the bl@@dy obvious!!Agree with the above post the players on your list is all guess work and no one knows who is staying or likely to come in until Paolo has made his decisions.


10 May 2012 08:53:46
Jon stead to charlton for 1000000(4)(31)What the same jon stead voted fans player of the season ?Not a chance in hellI take it you dont want him to leave then?

Le fondre to Cardiff on loan. Reading promoted means no game time for the ex Rotherham striker(6)(30)Another post about Le Fondre going out on loan. It is not going to happen. He will get game time it is the other strikers that won't like Church, Mancet and Sheppard.Cant see why their top scorer wouldnt get game timeReading's most prolific striker, he will feature heavily next season. Another delusional Cardiff fan i see!Le fondre will be going no where as he will be a big part player in readings season,and will score goals aswell so wake up cardiff fan.:))As a Cardiff fan i wouldn't want him anyway...but I don't see him stepping up to the Prem level but I do see Reading surviving and doing better than Norwich or Swansea.Typical Cardiff fan! He isn't going anywhereWhy would anyone in their right mind go to wales {Ed025's Note - the scenery?..


10 May 2012 08:46:31
D Vassell to middlesborough for 750000(4)(25)Ha you person he is out of contract so you either get him free or not at all if he signs a new contract.


10 May 2012 08:25:34
So for all of those proclaiming Ritchie, Caddis etc will be leaving Swindon Town.. They have AGAIN stated "None of our stars will be leaving. Players on the fringes of the squad will go (If they can off load them) then new players will be added. They are hoping to get Bostock back on season long loan. They hope to tie up the free signings for Mceveley and Holmes which is common knowledge. As for who else may be on PDC wanted list there may well still be some interest in O'Kane (Although PDC was annoyed that SKY released this at a time when his club are facing the play offs-although Martin Ling as stated the transfer talk has not unsettles his player. There is also some talk of Pack (Cheltenham) apart from that all of the talk on here lately is nonesense, PDC and the Board know who they want, they know what resources are available. Those on here listing everyone with a pulse and two legs have not got a clue. They other last bright spot "Swindon stars do not want to leave, they want to see if they can get back to back promotions" and Jeremy Wray has stated "We do not need to sell and we won't sell" several times in the last few months. What ever happens, it's going to be exciting for the fans between now and the start of the season seeing just who is coming in!! One last thing PDC will not be leaving before then end of next season!!(9)(6)


10 May 2012 08:02:40
Luke Freeman is not joining Burnley. Im good friends with him and he wants to stay at stevenage and try and get them up if not this season then season season.(6)(17)Plus he signed a 2 year deal in january, i also am led to belive he still lives at home so wont move away from his family just yet

Tottenham Hotspur transfers:
Jan Vertonghen: 10 million
Diego Capel: 7 million
Leighton Baines: 8 million
Adebayor: 15 million
Loic Remy: 13 million {Ed025's Note - £8m for baines? you got the prices for Baines and Adebayor the wrong way round...

I'd say Capel is at best fifth choice for a wide player this summer, after Hazard, Krasic, Hoilett and Moses.Baines by far the best lb in britain he wont be leaving EFC for any less that 20+8 million for baines? you need some stronger glue you chopperWhy do all you fools think that baines is worth 8-10 milLeighton Baines--20mill ??
If Moyes can get anything like that he must be a miracle worker.I'd rate him £8 mill top bat. I accept he's a good player -but not that good!Erm best english LB by a mile my ARSE! Ashley Coles the best in the world and he's english sooooAshley Cole is nothing compared to Baines

Expect movement around Forest Green striker Reece Styche. Now that he has recovered from a long term knee injury numerous championship and league 1 clubs intrested in the young striker. Conference club will be reluctant to loose their prized asset as they go for all out promotion next season.(11)(1)


10 May 2012 00:19:53
My mate, Gary Liddle, has been offered the chance to re-join Boro, but is unsure as he wants to play regular first team football. Mowbray told him he sees him as a holding midfielder.
Boro have also tabled an offer for Zola from Carlisle, but he looks likely to join Leeds apparently.

Marton Mick.(4)(17)Who's Zola?Obviously true this one, Zola doesnt even play for them, i think you mean zoko........


10 May 2012 00:19:29
PNE to offer Bury forward Mike Grella a two year contract at deepdale to replace Neil Mellor, who had to unfortunately retire from professional football yesterday due to a serious knee injury.

Heard from my friend who went to school with sam Mantom and still lives by him in wordsley that he's definatly coming back to Walsall either on loan or a permanent as he doesnt know where his future lies now with hodgson leaving.

09 May 2012 22:40:45
Arsene Wenger is very close to sealing to incomings to The Emirates but also could lose three players after accepting offers.
To start with, Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano is set to fly to England before the season ends to speak to the club after the underachieving French side accepted a £15 million bid from the London side for the 27 year old.
Another deal very close to happening is Borussia Dortmund youngster Terrence Boyd. The 21 year old is expected to sign a five year deal at Arsenal for around £3.5 million.
Three players are expecting to leave in the near weeks.
Morocco international Marouane Chamakh is very close to sealing a two year deal in Holland with AZ Alkmaar, in a transfer that could cost the Eredivisie side £4 million.
Another Dutch club in PSV are keen on signing Russia captain Andrei Arshavin on loan for the next campaign with a view to a full time deal in January. Talks have already starts.
Finally, South Korea international has this week held talks with local rivals Tottenham over a cheap £5 million transfer that could earn the former Monaco attacker around £65,000 a week.(8)(20)

Have heard that Oxfords James Constable is in talks with Yeovil.(18)(13)Have heard this too. Maybe a cash/player deal....But have also heard Rotherham have made enquiry about Constable - Evans has an open cheque book apparentlyAfter all the abuse and death threats Oxford fans gave Constable in January when Swindon wanted to talk to him about a move i wouldnt be surprised if he moved. His form has dipped considerably since January and who can blame him moving after the way he hwas treated by Oxford fans. What makes me laugh is when he stayed at Oxford after the January window Oxford fans expected everything to go back to normal with Constable. He wants to leave the club and will.Er death threats? What utter utter rubbish. There is not one supporter who thought Beano worked his socks off for Oxford. Get over it - he did not want to sign for Swindon and after a huge amount of money was offered too. Typical of Swindon - throw loads of money at something and dont worry for tomorrow. Well, tomorrow is not far away. He will leave Oxford most likely as he needs to develop and its likely the case he is bit hacked off with the way the management have treated him. But death threats - get your facts right. That is a serious and nasty accusation to makeHe loves oxford , the fans love him, the recor when he plays is far better than without, he hasnt had many chances to score since the swindon match! he s an ultimate pro but his future unfortunately lies at the hands of the manager


09 May 2012 22:12:15
People saying that charlton need to settle the books and sell our best players even though we spent around 2 million and received 1 million for jenkinson plus around 400k for add ons
Also Still getting payments from boro for nicky bailey and appearance money from Liverpool for jonjo shelvey so I'm pretty sure the books are already levelled and with new owners which the deal was to clear the clubs debt not to buy the club.(11)(10)

Derby County are going to anounce
next week 3 signings

Michael Jacobs from Northampton

Fegor Ogude from Valerenga


A shock return for Free agent
Lionel Ainsworth who has recently
been released from Shrewsbury.
Nigel Clough has been often saying
the lack of pace on the right side and
was impressed with his performance
agianst Derby County in the early
season cup game

These signings should be comfirmed
on sky sports or the club site by the
end of next week(9)(15)The Ainsworth rumour won't happen. He's not up to League 1 standard, let alone Championship!Yeah, doubt we'd get Ainsworth but i want the other two.

Bristol rovers to sign Alan Navaro after he was recently released by championship side Brighton(7)(12)Source?Cow pat mate. absolute cow pat. Although he been released, they done that last season aswell. BHA have already said they will review his situation again in June as they offer him a new 1 year deal.No idea if it'll be Rovers but highly unlikely to stay at Brighton. He had a good season and was still told that no new deal was there for him. Will get another club on a 2yr deal easily enough.

Sacked Barmby for apparently making comments which offended the owners and brought into question their integrity around proposed transfer budgets.

Am I dreaming? A bloody saints fan that likes us more than Palace!! You obviously have an eye for a good team mate. Now on a more serious note...a, bridcutt will stay put. B, vincente will stay put. C, joe Lewis and Boyd will both sign next week from peterboro(4)(16)Joe Lewis is no longer a Peterborough player! He is useless! Boyd is a good player but is not premiership quality, if you want to stay in the prem, you really need to be aiming a little bit higher than this!Think any animosity between Saints/Brighton has come more from your lot, mate e.g 'It's official... SAINTS BUBBLE HAS BURST'. Also certain the poster above has misread the original post and may wish to comment on Lewis and Boyd going to Peterborough's championship rivals.

there won't be any footballers left at the end of the summer because according to this site Southampton are buying everyone!(28)(12)Hang on there, doubt we will sign anyone from Pompey and according to the poster below, lambert is going to LeicesterThe same thing happened last year. On the back of promotion, and with money to burn loads of people are getting carried away, and this year the papers are joining in, I've seen 12 players linked already in national papers/online. Last year we only signed 4 players, and I'd expect no more than 6 this year.Haha that was funnySo what about Reading, Leciester, Charlton etc....Its a rumour site your going to get loads of posts about different players. Always happens with newly promoted teams too. People taking this all seriously make me laugh!I thought it was a rumour site have funWe are southampton, we'll buy who we want!

Charlton's financial situation is not looking good after last seasons spending spree. Numerous big named players having to be axed to reduce the wage bill including Jackson, Kermogant and potentially BWP. Jackson has been linked to Palace as after all, Palace do not consider Charlton rivals.(10)(13)This is absolute rubbish. We're on a solid financial footing having had a recent takeover. We didn't spend massively (look up New York Addick, I believe he's the go-to man for Charlton financial information), we received a lot for Jenkinson, a bit for Bailey, and bits and pieces here and there for other players. JJ certainly won't leave for Palace.Really how old are you?
You Palace fans are really wierd pretending not to like us but then posting almost obsessive things like this about us.
Oh, and by the way we're financially stable and will be pushing for a return to the premier league sometime in the next few years.


09 May 2012 19:12:40
Southampton to sign this summer

Jason Lowe - Blackburn - £2.5 mill
Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield - £4.5 mill
Craig Cathcart - Blackpool - £3 mill (depending if BP are promoted
Jonjo Shelvey - Liverpool - Loan(6)(32)Absolute rubbish!If southampton sign these players, they be straight back down into the championship.Im a Saints fan and I agree this is rubbish...These players would not improve out squad in my opinion (Maybe Rhodes though)They will any way ^^- Lowe - relegated with Bburn and I wasn't impressed with him at all.

- Rhodes - would like more pace up front so can see him being expensive and not really what we need despite his talent.

- Cathcart. Just no.
- Shelvey - if we bring in youth players into the team they will be from our own academy, not on loan on the behalf of other rival clubs.

You may sign Dempsey but we won't be buying your deadwood!Dempsey is at least 10 mate even with his contract out next summer. 8m and rosicky could tempt them thoughWhy on earth would Dempsey want to take such a massive step down when he has played so well this year.

Ben Haim to southampton for 350k(3)(33)Joel Ward will sign for Leeds done deal!Why on earth would Southampton want Ben Haim? All he is is a drain on Pompey's funds. There's no way anyone would pay money for him. If his contract is up he'll go for free and on his wages, I don't think many of their lot will be too sad to see him go.Unfortunately TBH's contract has another year to go. Gotta come to a deal to release him or hope some mug punters buy him.

Leeds boss Neil Warnock is expected to add four names to his summer transfer list after completing the deal for Portsmouth defender Jason Pearce last week.
Nottingham Forest skipper Luke Chambers is subject of a undisclosed bid from United and could sign a three year deal before the weekend.
Secondly, Watford forward Joe Garner is close to signing a two year deal after Championship rivals Leeds had a £170,000 bid accepted for the former Nottingham Forest player.
Another striker very close to signing is 21 year old attacker Darren Mattocks from Vancouver Whitecaps. The youngster is thought to be the next big thing in the MLS and could sign a four year deal with Warnock's side.
Finally, Charlton midfielder Dale Stephens is subject of a £300,000 bid from United and could sign a three year deal after impressing Warnock during winning promotion to the Championship from League 1.(5)(24)Luke chambers is out of contractHow can anyone sign by this weekend, the window is still shut!!And garner?! wats he done to merit anyone buying him this year? as a watford fan i hope we get our monies worth because garner has been a real disappointment this year. he tries hard but just lacks quality and goes down far too easily. we hav very few strikers as it is so i doubt we d be selling him just yetLeeds have no money theyre skintPlease take chambers ! hes rubbishSkint? Leeds are one of the few clubs in the Champinship that are not in debt and make a profit.And chambers contract is up so thats proved this is all made upI hope Leeds do take Garner off our hands.There is so much wrong with this post I can't even be bothered to comment!Joe Garner at leeds, haha, a match made in heaven. He won't get you 20 goals a season but he might get 20 red cards.

There have been a couple of rumours on this site today about Brighton players without the club's name attached (see under the main 'Football Rumours' thread 9 May)
One says Bridcutt is going to Fulham for £3.2 mill and the other that Dunk is joining Liverpool. Both seem unlikely.(3)(9)Well why say it then?

Crawley to sign:

Matthew Gill (Bristol Rovers £200,000)

Relyable Source
(In my family)

McLeod (Barnet) £400,000

Jermaine Grandison (Shrewsbury) £400,00

YEAH BOI(0)(15)McLeod isn't joining for us, he's already signed for Portsmouth check it if you don't believe me on wikipediaMcLeod is a free agent in the Summer, Gill is nowhere near worth £200k either.Can't see any of those deals happening.Grandison is a Shrews legend and is going nowhere.Total rubbish.

If your team had been promoted from league 2, I'm sure you would not be happy them signing 2 players from the league below for 1 million (with the 3rd in a fellow promoted team).

Crawley will be going for tried league 1 and Championship players.

Michael Owen on his way to Ipswich on a season long loan, Jewell has good relations with Michael and looks to add some experience and goals to his side.

zaha agreeing a deal with southampton with jason puncheon going in the opposite direction deal 85% done ..... good source from both clubs(18)(19)Saints fan here...Sorry cant see it..Zaha is good enough for a bigger team.Saints fan here,

Tough one to call. Seems reasonable to be honest. Palace get a quality replacement and Southampton get a cheaper deal. As above post says, Zaha is good enough for better clubs, but might be happy with premiership football and a starting place, which few prem clubs can offer to a 19 year old?

Just a thought. As with all rumours at this stage it's probably not going to happen, but I think it could benefit both parties. Southampton not a bad club to get involved in for a 19 year old wanting to break into prem football.So that he can play back in the championship 2014 -2015 SEASON.Above post - Why would Saints buy Zaha only to sell him back to a Championship club? Makes no sense!"So that he can play back in the championship 2014 -2015 SEASON."

I know I am biased as a Saints supporter but realistically most of the teams Zaha will join could potentially be threatened by relegation next season?

There is no point him or anyone speculating which will go down, but from my perspective I'd rather join a successful, confident, ambitious, wealthy football club than one treading water in the prem? Saints have decent support (will sell out every game in prem), ambitions to rival most clubs in the prem, some of the best facilities in the country and is generally considered a very well run 'going-places' club.

I am not saying we will stay up/go down, but I am saying wherever Zaha goes there will always be that threat, and I would look at the clubs and see Saints as one of the more attractive ones to give the prem a crack with, worst case scenario is that he gets relegated but will be good enough to be brought back into another prem team?


09 May 2012 17:43:49

He also kissed Alex Bruce's shirt before being substituted off in the game, and was warmly applauded. The impression is that he would like to return to Leeds, if he leaves Leicester, but we aren't after forwards providing McCormack stays.

Sky State Charlton Are Ready To Offer Francois Zoko A contract when his contract at Carlisle ends Very Soon They Also Say He Rejected Several Re-newels From Carlisle.

And Dont get critical Its A Good Source Look It Up Yourself.

Yes, he is on free transfer.
Yes, clubs will be interested.
But no, he hasn't rejected any offers of a renewed contract from Carlisle.

They offered him one on Sunday, and negotiations are yet to start. He's given Carlisle first billing, and has talked to no other clubs. He is Carlisle's to lose.(0)(0)Hang on, what? Zoko is publically quoted as saying that he offered to send clubs videos of him playing to coax them into offering him a deal at the end of the season. If that's not a player in dialogue with other clubs, then I'm a fish with legs.

WE ARE LEICESTER CITY AND WE ARE GOING UP, yes your all sat there saying we cant spend millions because of FFP who cares if they fine us we are loaded remember, then you say you can only spend what you earn we have loads of rich sponsers like puma so yeah premiership watch out leicester are coming!!!(6)(41)Seriously?! This has to be someone pretending to be a Leicester fan surely! They cant actually believe that crap?!Hes just finished his homework i think ....Didn't you all say that last summer? didn't happen as planned really did it...Didn't you lot come out with these statements before the start of last season, I bet the bottom half of the PL quaking in their boots, you'll stay where you belong, championship.Loling at the stupidity of immature fansThis for me (who is a real Leicester fan) is embarrasingHaha championship will be 10 times harder this season! Leicester lucky to make playoffs.

I'm a Saints fan, we were lucky because the championship wasn't the most competitive it has been this year (no one put a winning run together to challenge us until Reading at the end of the season), but next year it will be a nightmare. Couldn't call any team being certain of promotion other than Wolves who shouldn't lose too many players from relegation.May i say as a leicester supporter the original poster is clearly on a wind up, tho the ffp rules will come into play i dont believe it will be in full effect for 3 seasons, also there are loop wholes, maybe leicester will sell the rights to there stadium for millions to king power just as Man city have im not saying we are in the same financial league as them im just making the point that there will be ways of creating extra income.Ime a coventry city fan u crack me up i swear it was u ho said that this time last year i bet u cov will get to prem before uDear oh dear. Either 10 years old, high on something or had a bang on the head. {Ed025's Note - or all three..You spent millions last season, what league you in next season?The FFP rules will be in full effect from the start of next season. From next season you will only be allowed to make a loss of £10m and your investors can only put £6m into the club and it wont be a fine it will be a transfer embargo if you break these rules. Make sure you check your facts before posting on here!Check ur facts buddy! I repeat FFP rules will not be in (Full) effect till 2014-2015 season these rules will be introduced gradually and sanctions will not be introduced I till the 2014-2015 season and this will be either a transfer embargo or and I quote " A fine the other clubs who comply will share!!Groundhog dayThe FFP rules are in effect from the start of the new season. It is the fines & transfer embargo's that will come into effect in 2013/14 based on the finances of the previous season. A promoted side will be fined and a team not getting promotion will suffer a transfer embargo.Hang on, you've just made this up!
wallyJust want to thank you again for the
£5million you paid for Matt Mills! Will wave to you on Match of the Day URZZZZNo chance mate, look you wont be spending as much as last year and look what happened to ya! going nowhere!

Ipswich are close to completing their first 2 transfers of the summer, after their mass clear out.

First in the door will be Joel Ward from Portsmouth. Talks have been on-going with board members and the administrators at the debt ridden south coast club, and a solution is close to completion.Twon are hoping to seal the £400k deal by the start of next week.

Joel Ward will be closely followed in the door by Michael Jacobs from Northampton. Ipswich have moved ahead of plenty of championship sids in the race for Jacobs. Jacobs is said to be impressed with the way Aaron Cresswell was given the chance this season, and is hoping that Jewell will let him fill the left side of midfield. Town are hoping to agree a £250k fee, rather than for it to go to a tribunal.(10)(6)Is it me, or do we get this yammering every season from Ipswich fans. If half the deals rumoured on here last year were 'done and dusted,' then Ipswich would have signed upwards of eighty players. Especially Joel Ward. God, if you're going to get him, just do it, before Leeds come in.

whoever is appointed WBA manager will be promised a transfer budget in the region of £15m - £20m as Jeremy Peace is now willing to spend as they head into their 3rd consecutive season in the Premier League and see's this as the ideal time to further consolidate their position as a Premier League club. The manager will be allowed to spend whatever money is generated from player sales. the amount given/raised will also have to include new players wages.

expect the following to leave

- Olsson (wont sign new contract)
- Odemwingie (if bigger club comes in)
- Tamas (wants to leave)
- Jara (cp)
- Scharner (didnt trigger clause in contract)
- Foster (End of loan)
- Mattock (not premier league standard)

09 May 2012 15:36:05
Word around Merseyside this morning is John Henry had told Kenny Daglish he will have to be a lot more careful with transfers this summer as he will only have £25m cash plus whatever can be raised through player sales. Last summer Liverpool spent more than double that with £20m on Downing, £16m on Henderson, £7.5m on Adam, £7m on Coates and £5.5m on Enrique while Bellamy and Doni joined on free transfers. Despite most of last seasons transfers flopping Doni is the only one looking likely to leave the club this summer as he wants a move back to Brazil. Daglish is willing to offload Aquilani,Kuyt,Cole,Aurelio,Doni,Maxi Rodriguez,Eccleston,B.Jones and even young Jay Spearing as he looks to trim the huge wage bill. Daglish is hoping the players going out will raise £15-20m . Daglish will not be paying over the odds this year as he won't have enough money, he is looking for some shrewd premier league signings in Craig Gordon and David Hoilett, both are free agents this summer and would surely relish the opportunity to play at Anfield. Liverpool need another goalkeeper as 2nd and 3rd choices Doni and Jones look set to leave. Gordon would be a good back up and could provide competition for an under performing Pepe Reina. David Hoilett is a tricky young winger with pace to burn, Hoilett could be just what Liverpool need but they face competition from Tottenham and Sunderland. Bologna confirmed last week that they have received a £16m offer for Uruguayan playmaker Gaston Ramirez from an unnamed PL club believed to be Liverpool. Ramirez is believed to be Kenny's top summer target. Luuk de Jong is available for £12.5m and Daglish sees him as the man to replace Dirk Kuyt, de Jong will offer Carroll some competition up top while he is just as good playing off the striker or like Kuyt on the right wing. Liverpool will also sign an experienced holding midfielder as Daglish doesn't feel spearing is up to the job and with Lucas out with a long term injury he can't afford to start another season without another tough tackling midfielder. Daglish is planning a £7.5m bid for Lassana Diarra should that fail then Daglish will make a £3m move for Seydou Keita. Jonjo Shelvey,Danny Wilson,Raheem Sterling,Adam Morgan and John Flanagan are all set for a period out on loan to develop. Possible Ins Ramirez-£16m,Hoilett-free,de Jong-£12.5m,Diarra-£7.5m,Gordon-free Liverpool squad 2012/13 GK-Reina/Gordon/Ward RB-Johnson/Kelly CB-Skrtel/Agger/Carragher/Coates/Wisdom LB-Enrique/Robinson CDM-Lucas/Diarra/Coady CM-Gerrard/Adam/ CAM-Henderson/Suso RW/LW-Ramirez/Hoilett/Downing/Bellamy ST-Suarez/Carroll/de Jong/Ibe(10)(17)

some genuine name saints have been linked with are; J.Rodriguez(8m-the sun) Michu(4.9m-skysports) Scott Dann(?-the sun) Kevin Doyle(4m-daily mirror) Conor McAleny(free-daily mail) Zat Knight(?-the people) Matthew Upson(500k-daily mail) Matt Jarvis(4m-the express) Mark Davies(?-the sun) Jamie Vardy(1m-the sun) Zak Whitbread(free-skysports) Yakubu(?-) Simon Cox(?-) Jake Livermore(?-) Matt Phillips(?-) Curtis Davies(3m-the sun)
Theres also Gary hooper who had a 7m fee rejected in January and has expressed his views of playing in europe, but who knows, Adkins does what he can to nail his man. wait an see

Started off as a bit of a rant. Then went on about some past signings. Then went on with some vague attempt to over view the current rumours out there without using the space bar.

Not quite sure what you are hoping to achieve. There was a rant but it wasn't backed up by anything. Then just some random rumours - bit confused.

SaintsLadThis is true i have heard the exact same list of players apart from oliver norwood instead of grant mccann and southampton have joined the race for butterfieldBrain stock who's he lolPoster above your probably the guy that wrote this lolPeterborough would never sell their captain for 100k c'mon mate.Brian Howard has gone to Doncaster.
You're going to get about £850k for Butterfield if it reaches tribunal.

Charlton Athletic are on the brink of signing Wilfred Zaha from Crystal Palace. It will be a Great signing(3)(32)Idiotic comment.IDIOTWhat a brilliant jokeDont be silly he will be a prem playerWelcome to Charlton Athletic - the new Southampton of football rumour forums.

Southampton are reportedly looking into signing Paul Robinson from Blacburn Rovers for a fee thought to be around £2 million. It is thought he would provide great competition to Kelvin Davis.(19)(12)Competition? Surely Robinson would be the new number 1 otherwise he wouldn't sign!He probably might sign but dounbt he'd be back-up if he did.In what way is this good competition for Kelvin Davis?

Two old keepers competing over a spot is NOT what we need. We need the space to have a young keeper fighting for a first team spot.

Having a 32 year old and a 34 year old competing over a first team place is not what we want going forward, we want kelvin davis as first choice, buy in a new young keeper as 2nd choice and have him improve and compete. An older keeper should always be understudied by a younger keeper if the club wants to progress as a whole.

For example:
- Lars Unnerstall (my first choice. He is 2nd keeper at Shalke and they already have a young keeper holding the number 1 spot, so this could easily happen but it would be costly as he is a quality player, but I believe we need to sign young quality players even if they cost a little more)

Others that could become possible:

- Marc-André Ter Stegen
- Ron Robert Zieler
- Samir Ujkani
- Ali Ahamada
- Esteban Alvarado
- Bill Hamid

I know my football and these signings are all possible. I am not categorically saying "we will be able to sign them" but they are not off the mark. Google them if you want more info.

SaintsLadNot sure about the players he mentions but the comments from SaintsLad are spot on.I agree with SaintsLad. Finally people that actually think before posting! I agree we will bring a keeper in though. Bart has been with us for years and years and barely got anything, I think he will probably move on to get regular first team football. Which is a shame, he's been so patient and shown great loyalty and patience with the club

Manchester United are lining up a sensational move for Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie.

The 28-year-old has just one year left on his current deal at the Emirates and there has been intense speculation over whether he will remain at Arsenal.
Van Persie, who has hit 35 goals in all competitions this season, has stated that he will hold talks with Arsene Wenger over his future in the summer.
Manchester City are reportedly ready to pay the Dutchman £250,000 a week to quit north London, while Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been linked with moves.
Now United have joined the chase, with Sir Alex Ferguson planning to strengthen his squad this summer after a disappointing campaign that looks set to end without any silverware.
talkSPORT understands United have already sounded out the possibility of van Persie making a switch to Old Trafford, and are prepared to splash out big on the former Feyenoord man.(13)(27)Dream on man u are pennyless couldnt afford van persie even if they sold rooney naniHe will go abroad if he leaves.

Pompey News....As reported in the Pompey newspaper this morning there are 2 interested buyers for the club one being chainrai and The other one is Chinease Businessmen Yon em lal,a very succesful man in China....He has big plans for the club, a new ground away from FP,new training and academy facilities and substantial funds for MA....Exciting times for Pompey...(3)(18)Just read the news - no mention of a rich chinaman buying the club

Why would he want to - club in too much debtBull. There is literally nowhere in the city to put a stadium other than where FP is now. You'd have to put it out of the city which won't happen.I would suggest being a little cautious until there is something more concrete.Shame its a false rumour , good luck on finding someone from a sincere saints fan were not all wishing you go underGood luck to you pompey. Don't get excited but don't get pessimistic either. You're not a bad investment. Whoever buys you has a potentially premiership club to build on with a blank canvas and if I had the money I would want to buy a club like yourselves with decent fans and a history and make something of it from scratch.

Good luck (from a saints fan)

SaintsLadPompey fan here, Not trying to put a downer on things buy whoever buys us what are they buying. The ground is an awful state, would need rebuilding or massive work done on it, we dont own our own training ground. By the time any deal goes through there will be no team at the rate the way we are going. All i am saying is dont get your hopes up, we been let down to many times before.Sorry SaintsLad, I am a Saints supporter as well but that is a load of rubbish.
The problem for Pompey fans is that the club is now a diabolical investment. Compare it to a club like Rangers and you will see that I am correct-if Rangers are struggling to get new owners with their support, facilities and chance of Champions League football, what have Pompey to offer?Above post, whoever buys it will be buying whatever is worth the price they invest.

When you buy a football club half of it is purchasing the material assets of the club, the other half is purchasing the fans and the stature the club currently has (decent fans and a potentially decent championship status at the moment).

The price that will be payed by whoever purchases it will reflect the quality of ground and the training ground and the players. Of course they aren't buying a finished product but the value of the purchase will reflect that.

Tony Bloom tookover a lower League 1 Brighton buy purchasing a majority share for relatively little value and invested money into the club, got a new stadium built etc. With the history pompey has and the fans something similar can easily happen. Its a clean page to start on for any investor with potentially a premiership club and will be a cheap club to purchase. Right now things look dire for pompey, but the future could potentially shine very bright for them if the right investor comes in, who no doubt will come in with the intention to buy the club for cheap then spend to increase its value (like at Southampton).

And I'm a Saints fan. Don't slate pompey for being a st investment, its a decent club, just needs the right owner and it is in the perfect position to make a comeback. {Ed025's Note - well said pal..To the person questioning what pompey have to offer.. the above post answers that question (I wrote that also but just didn't sign off with 'SaintsLad'.

If you purchase any company (e.g. a Football Club) you purchase it at it's current value. What portsmouth offers isn't a position of great material assets but one of potential assets.

By that I mean.. After administration and other legal measures, which I won't go into now, Pompey will be relatively debt free, with a decent supporter base and a history in football. The fact it needs re-structuring and new facilities will only serve to make it cheaper for any potential investor.

The fact the football club will be relatively cheap means that more money can be invested elsewhere - buying an expensive club which has already been developed by a previous owner gives that club little area to grow into and expand as a business and as a football club.

Having a blank slate to start building a new football club franchise upon, yet still retaining a reasonable league status and fan support is very attractive. A club hitting rock bottom offers a lot more exciting investment opportunity than a club staying afloat and doing reasonably well.

Of all people Saints fans like yourself and I should appreciate that sometimes it takes relegation, hitting rock bottom and stripping bare all the extra weight weighing you down before you can start again and build for a brighter future with a disciplined and ambitious owner.

All I am suggesting is that people shouldn't slate pompey's attractiveness as an investment for having nothing material to offer an investor because investors don't buy clubs that are finished products, they buy them and develop them themselves so they can turn a profit. Anyway gone off track, whether this rumour is true or not is another story, but good luck to pompey anyway.

Papiss Cisse was misinterpreted and did not say he wants to join Real Madrid, he just said he grew up as a supporter!

Although, if they did come in for him, I wouldn't begrudge him a move, Newcastle would get at least £30m for him, probably as much as £50m. Goalmachine#(8)(21)Maybe £18m not £30m and especially not £50m when real madrid could buy a better goalmachine and striker for that priceExcept if he plays against KompanyGood player but wont cost anywhere near £30m!! had a good start to the prem but hes only been there half a season....could just be a first season wonder...we'll see! and if Real come in for him i can see more like £15m-£20m more likely and he wont reject them to stay at disrespect i like Newcastle just not as big as the Real's and Barca'sI believe this. Translational mis-interpretation.

Footballers get a lot of stick now a days but they aren't stupid. He would be a fool to betray newcastle a few months after signing with them, after all the support he is doing and how well he has been playing. No need to upset the apple cart. If he has another season like the one he has just had though, can see him moving on to bigger things unfortunately.

Can see him being a bit of a Samuel Eto type player.Wots going on ed wheres ma reply to this so called rumour {Ed025's Note - never seen it mate...but if it was abusive or contained will have been binned..He has buy out clause of 15m

crystal palace have been linked to brightons highly rated defender lewis dunk and will buckley.the pair see it as a step up.(4)(16)How is moving from brigton to palace a step up?? oh and that's coming from a forest fanHere we go again silly rumour time from poor Palace supportersLol er yeah ok, and in respect to Dunk, you can have him after his contract has been cancelled by the club, and he is probably imprisoned for part in the sex scandal, so sign him in 18 months or so ladsMaybe he could sign for Forest......That would be a well bigger step up....Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!I'm neutral (Saints) and I can't see it as a step up I'm afraid.

Brighton is a nice area on the South Coast, nice towns. Lovely new stadium. Ambitious club finishing progressively higher (not lower like palace) and with a great manager.

Sorry Palace but if you are going to start competing for players against the likes of Brighton you need to show more overall ambition.

However, with Clyne leaving this summer and palace no doubt getting a fee of larger proportions.. I can see some spending. But not directly against championship clubs finishing higher than them and currently with better prospects.

SaintsladYou might be able to get them both if you're prepared to splash out a decent percentage of the £150m you are getting for Zaha. Or not maybe.Are you seriously comparing forest to palace? Fan base, stadium, potential, seriously think place are anywhere near forest? Come on daft lad lol
I'm to saying forest are a big club, because at present we are not, but we are a level above palace.
I've heard good things, footballing things of course, about dunk. I just hope he doesn't go to the prem and spend three years in the reserves or being loaned out to lots of different clubs.
He would do well staying at Brighton and learning his trade

Tranmere release 7 players as they look to strengthen for next season:
Enoch Showumni
Mustafa Tiriyaki
David Raven
Robbie Weir
Martin Devaney
Joss Ladabie
Andy Coughlin

Showumni has been a shadow of his former self since his broken leg and looks to need a fresh challenge.
Tiriyaki was on loan at Cambridge and failed to find form there possibly will go back to non league football.
Raven was an ever present at the strt of the season however a number of injuries kept him on the sidelines.
Robbie Weir never managed to find any sort of form decent enough player on his day.
Martin Devaney Mr Glass!
Joss Ladabie far to indisciplined
Andy Coughlin could well go on to have a decent career not a bad keeper.

Rovers have had to get some of these higher earners off the pay roll simply because they have not played for large parts of the season.

Rovers have offered deals to Goodison, Taylor, Welsh, Buchanen and Robinson. The club are hopeful all will sign despite interest from a number of toher clubs.

Rovers have also taken up the one year option on Danny Holmes, Lucas Akins and Adam McGurk(11)(2)

Dicanio did very well in the last season there are limits to what they will put in the
pot.So looks as if Dicanio is headed to west Ham.
It's also rumoured that Dicanio went way over budget last seaso, yet he mad the team champions
Time for the Board to either fund or let Dicanio know(3)(17)TripePosted by a deluded Oxford fan this rumour. I think people need to remember the high earners were shipped out when Di Canio came in and so this rubbish about him spending over budget is pure fantasy.What is he going to do at West Ham then Ball boy??
god knows where you get your information from you are so far from the truth its unreal... he couldnt manage championship players at the momentas he is to raw! could see Noalan and cole training 7 days a week i cant, the Swindon players had a total of 19 days off this season thats including sundays and week days......... nothing but a dreamer? i know hoddle is the next Swindon manager??

Sydney FC are close to landing
striker Mathieu Manset from Reading
(currently on loan at Shanghai
Shenhua) on a 3 year deal.
Although Reading would have
preferred to loan the young striker
out for another season, his development
has stalled and he is unlikely to sign
a new contract when his expires at the
end of 2012/13. They have agreed a
fee which could rise to around £400k.(8)(9)Reading wouldn't have preferred a loan at all. We bought him from Hereford knowing he had a weight problem but felt we could get him fit and keep him fit. The sad fact is he isn't professional enough and can't be managed. He's also had off-field problems, one of which was his drink driving.

I'm surprised there's any money involved if I'm honest.Ill be honest, i think he has great potential, id take him at boro any dayReading straight up rejected a (sizeable) cash offer for Manset in January from Crawley, before the bid from Shanghai was even mentioned. Why wouldn't they want a fee?Can we have him back at hereford

Ed what you are forgetting is that they have already affected jobs and small businesses in the area, have a look at the creditors list and all the small companies they owe money to, the list is endless..... {Ed025's Note - and so you think gloating about that is ok?..

Ed ....have you ever heard the old adage "what goes round comes round" you would be telling lies if you dont admit you have gloated at some point in your life, it is actually called banter, i have got some friends that are Portsmouth fans and I have suffered abuse from them over the past 6 or 7 years, so everyone needs to lighten up and get a life. Bye Bye Poopey...COYR(9)(5)Yet another sad muppet from the SO poor area of Hampshire making comments, and its not banter it is gloating, the likes of Man U, Liverpool, Chelsea etc owe far more than us and if their owners were to walk away like Gudamuck did, they also would be in the mire.Add to "what goes around comes around" "there's none so blind as those who will not see" according to the exp-erts 70% of clubs are in financial problems or will be if their ambitions and fan's expectations are greater than their financial ability can support.Pompey fan writing from dire experiences.I think what irks many fans are some Pompey fans who do not seem to have any grasp of maths. Perhaps the fan who compares Pompey to Man.U, Chelsea etc. does not realise the difference between a business with strong assets and income compared to one that has neither. If you keep spending money and you have poor assets and income the outcome is inevitable but many Pompey fans seem to feel they can ignore this, either whilst it is happening or after the outcome.

It is not just the local businesses that have lost money, what about the clubs who were relegated because they did not spend money they did not have? Are all their fans supposed to say "poor old Pompey"?Who do you support,6/7 years of stick would infer the team to the west of Pompey, did you work in Portsmouth?Childish person , poopey? grow up your in the prem and your still worring about porsmouth and feel to write on this site i think your the one that needs to get life no problem with banter in real life but on here or the interent gets a bit silly every one trying to out do each otherBore off there is no point getting involved. Pompey know they are in a st situation, they've been laughed at by Saints fans now just leave it and wish them luck for the future, wouldn't want them slipping further down the leagues. I'm a Saints fan and there comes a point where the gloating is just pointless and childish. Let our results do the talking, have a little laugh at pompey then move on. No point rubbing salt in the wound, it's easy to forget that your neighbours are the most alike to us. Good luck pompey, from a saints fan.

09 May 2012 02:17:14
Judging by his tweets, Clayton doesnt seem to interested in leaving. i personally would like to see him stay. i think he would fit in well with a 4-2-3-1 formation. playing alongside someone who can tackle (green?). Someone with pace on the wing and play snoddy in front of 2 holding midfielders.(12)(3)If he doesn't seem interested in leaving why wont he settle for a lower wage? I agree i would like him to stay, young hungry and developing to a decent championship player. But he is still developing and inconsistent, if he was playing anything to the standard of his demands then it would be a different story.He said he wanted to renew his contract, seems hes being a bit greedy unfortunately as i also rate himShow us then and sign a new contract and help us get to where we belong
In warnock we trust. MOTWake up. snoddy will leave and so will clayton. money talks and leeds dont have any

Millwall's chief executive Andy Ambler has categorically stated that Millwall will not be doing a lot of business during the summer.

However, as Hameur Bouazza is almost certain to leave Millwall as he said to an Algerian newspaper back in February, Millwall will be in need of a left winger and are said to be keeping tabs on Martyn Woolford of Bristol City and Mustapha Carayol of Bristol Rovers.

The lions are also short of coverage at left back and are rumoured to be interested in Scott Laird of Stevenage - should they not get promoted from League One.(5)(2)CAFC Fan - Still see progress though, I'm sure you'll finnish a lot higher than this year.

wolves have agreed to sell Johnson to reading for 4m(25)(19)For the love of god let this be true.There is a god .Why would we sign a CB who will want to be starting. Our two CB's have been amazing this season so Johnson should go somewhere else for first team football. We do need a CB but as cover.Does he need a lift, I'll drive !Reading only sign a 'type' of player, and he aint it. He is an alcy for a start. He unsettled your dressing room. There's no way Reading would touch him!

Also I've heard they're very close to signing Mariappa from Watford. (The right type of player)Why would he leave for a little club like readingHe will go Villa him and Dann will be their centre backs next seasonBuzzzzzzing if this is true...hope you reading fans appreciate him as much as we have lol.., only had an argument with him 2 days ago hahah wish id of heard this thenHe is not the right character for us, let alone the fact he has been a prominent figure in a terrible defence for a season and a half...

Players I could realistically see at Sunderland next season odemwingie, yakubu, hoilett, adam Johnson, fabio, clyne and milner also there will be a lot of outgoings(9)(36)Fabio is off abroad on loan, Sunderland fans you will dissappointed with what is signed in the summerPlayers I could realistically see at Sunderland next season odemwingie, yakubu, hoilett, adam Johnson, fabio, clyne and milner also there will be a lot of outgoings

I can catagorically deny this rumour as i know for a fact they are all signing for Charlton in the next transfer window.You are one deluded Mackem! Milner wouldn't ever consider signing for you lot! Neither will Newcastle fan Adam Johnson, them two are way out of Sunderland's reach.

Heard Heskey is going mind...Don't post silly comments, it makes us look as daft as our neighbour poster above! ;)

I'm a reading fan and I thought our rumours on here were ridicoulous then Charlton get promoted....looks like they will have a squad of 57 players next season(18)(4)I agree total rubbishAfter 24 signings last year what did you expect?Apparently there are 57 teams all signing Matt Richie (yet again - yawn)Happens every year on here with promoted teams. I'm a Norwich fan and this time last year e were linked with 106 different players on this site. Think we signed about four of them.

Premier league rumours:

Steven Fletcher is being chased by Aton Villa, Sunderland and Celtic. Its believed that Sunderland are the favourites, the fee could be in the region of 6-8 million.

Emile Heskey is also on the Celtic radar. Relegated Wolves and championship outfit Leicester have also been linked to the striker.

Charlie Adam is set to be in a tug of war between Stoke and Fulham. Though its believed that if Dempsey tells Jol he wants to leave he will be used as bait in the deal.(23)(14)Celtic couldnt afford him boot laces n 6-8 mill why would we sell him cheaper than we brought him for try 10millWhy would wolves sell fletcher for 7m? he cost them more then that he said he wants to stay and has got a five year dealWolves have put £12million on Fletchers head. As we have no debt we aint gonna accept 6-8.We paid £7m for Fletcher so as his value has increased I'd say barring any clauses you're looking more around the £10m figure.I wish you guys would stop all the adam stories he is going no where,and fletcher will be in epl.Burnley fc have a 25% sell on clause in his contract. so id say he wud go for at least 10 millCharlie Adam of no interest to Fulham - does not fit our teamRegardless of how much Wolves paid for Fletcher etc, there is no way next season he is going to be playing championship football. Will be interesting to see who bags him and for how much.

If Andy caroll is worth 50mil, Jordab Henderson 20mil & Torres 50mil then Peterboroughs Paul Taylor is worth every penny of the 3.5mil been quoted He's better & younger than macail-smith who went for the same amount. The reading fan below can't be a true fan as he would know We (WBA) paid 6mil for Long.(6)(5)Well Carroll's not worth 50 mil is he?You didn't, at most it was 4.5 rising, john mad came out and said it was nothing like what the papers were quoting. carrol was 35m too. and anyone you ask will tell you that cms is never worth that and neither is taylorHow is Carroll worth 50 million?! He went for 35 which as everybody has said a billion times was way over priced. And Long went for 4.5 millionLong was 6.5 actuallyReading are not going to buy players who are way above there price tag. 3.5 million is way too much for a player in the championship who is not exactly ripping the championship apart like Long did. I have seen Posh fans say he is useless ect. Our scouts are pretty good so if he is under par what they are looking for he won't be playing for Reading.And he's not better than cmsv anyway you jokerThe financial fairplay rule is going to change player valuations drastically

Expect leeds to sign free agent paul green in next 24hours,ex Derby man lined up as a replacement for outgoing Clayton,number of clubs were chasing him but he is local to leeds and a boyhood fan and is just waiting on agreeing personal terms.(27)(5)He better be good and true!Im a derby fan and to be honest he's overrated and a average player. Clayton is far more mobile and has better vision. Green is on the back end of his career and does not have the legs anymorePaul green is a sheffield wednesday fanWouldn't surprise me. Clayton is a good player but not a Warnock player. He's better suited to a team which will be playing on-the-floor tippy tappy football. Green is a lot stronger, as we saw when Derby completely outmuscled Leeds in the midfield this year.

Omg charlton arent going to buy everyone im a charlton fan and from good sources like sky have stated charlton have a decent budget and are looking to smart buy

Rumored to sign on a free after refusing a contract renewell at carlise.. francois zoko not a done deal but a good source

and another good source says charlton are ready to rap up jason puncheon from southampton for £250.000

plus lee bowyer said when his contract ends at ipswich he would love the free move back to charlton(8)(7)You will not sign puncheon for 250,000 saints where holding out for 1million during the jan window you really think there sell for 1/4 of that?I would be surprised if Puncheon joins for £250k-Saints were looking for £1m a few months ago and other clubs are interested.Why would we want to buy a 36 year old midfielder who is well past his best and a player that Charlton sold years ago?Puncheon for £250,000? Dream on, we want at least £1,000,000 for him. Blackpool I think had a bid of £700,000- £800,000 bid rejected earlier on in the season."Why would we want to buy a 36 year old midfielder" You dont buy free agents. I dont want him anyway.Jason Puncheon - Things change in football, his contract is nearer its end and Southampton have to name a squad IF he's not in that squad then you are a seller or holder of an unhappy player, that can reduce the price. Not saying this is true or that other clubs wont want him (hence raising the price) just that things change. Charlton were very canny & cagey last year I expect the same this year. If it aint 250K we probs wont be interested anyway.

He does not have much career left and sitting on a bench is a little pointless for him.Too old for readingHe's constantly injured and when he's not he doesn't get picked. Totally believable.He won't come south, he needs to look after his up and coming race horse stables, especially now he has Rooney's horses amongst others! Will stay in the Cheshire area...Reading will always be a small club?! Do you even follow football? They are about to receive serious investment, which will be reflected in their future transfers and the club infrastructure. More likely is they become a top 10 club in the next 4-5 seasons. Seriously do your research before making childish comments.1. You do not want this crock of a man at your football club!

2. He thinks he is too good to join a club below Man Utd's level

3. He will want £100k a week and will let you down time and again.

Yes, I am a Newcastle fan. I know what he's like..Top ten club please just have fun in the prem as you will always be a small club idiot

Why would Church, Jackson, Le Fondre ditch Premier League for Championship after working so hard all year. James Coppinger is worth much more than 250k, I know his age might be an issue but still top quality player who could do a lot better than Barnsley.Why on earth would Wolves loan a talent like Hammill back to a championship team when they really need him to help them get promoted. He will be 1st team next season due to imminent departures + they might as well sell him rather than loan as they could use the money.Why could they do better than barnsley a good honest little football club actually making a profit and not debt riddled like rest of teams and i'm a chesterfield fanBarnard going for free?

As for them being duds, they are very likely to be regulars in the Championship next term and I dont see Charlton struggling which would put them at a higher level then Celtic. Oh yeah I forgot Celtic get four games in the champions league this year and next and next.Bradley wright-phillips won't be good at Celtic.
Used to watch him at Saints and I think he will be a solid championship player for Charlton and is happy there being a star. Leave it.

Cardiff City are rumoured to have a transfer budget of around £7-10 million. They are after players from the Prem that have not had as much first team football as they would like: Ricardo Fuller and Jermain Pennant from Stoke.
Shola Ameobi from Newcastle (unlikely).
Matt Kilgallon from Sunderland.

One outside the Prem is Danny Ward from Huddersfield
but only if the Terriers fail in the playoffs which I
bloody hope not!!(4)(21)Cardiff City will not recieve 7 - 10 million in spending money because there is a new Championship rule where no club in the Championship can't recieve anymore than 5 million from their owners and if their are found recieving anymore more money from their owners the club will automaticially be relegated 2 leaguesIt’s not in force yet and it will be substantially more than the figures quoted above. There are many loopholes to exploit i.e. naming of the stadium etc...

The sacrifice is that they are being rebranded , playing in Red. But will still be CARDIFF CITY FC.Why would you randomly hope some team doesnt get promoted? not a huddersfield fan btw

Greek side Olympiakos are keen admirers of Charltons french target man Yann Kermorgant.The lure of European football could be to strong to resist for the 30 year old Who could leave for as little as £1MIL(4)(3)As long as he does not take a penalty

Doncaster's Dean Saunders is looking to replace 3/4 of his current squad. My sources had lead me to believe these are some of his many targets.

GK : Nicky Weaver, Sheff Wednesday £250,000
GK: Tom Heaton, Cardiff £LOAN
GK: Lewis Price, Crystal Palace £250,000
DC: Darren O'Dea, Celtic £LOAN
DC: Miles Addison, Derby, £0
DC: Pablo Mills, Crawley £300,000
DL: Jay McEveley £0
MR: Marc Pugh, Bournemouth £300,000
MC: Brian Howard, £0
MC: James Bailey, Derby £500,000
MC: Nick Montgomery, Sheff Utd £LOAN
FW: Simon Church, Reading £LOAN
FW: Ramon Nunez, Leeds £0
FW: Callum McManaman, Wigan £LOAN
FW: François Zoko, Carlisle Utd £500,000(10)(24)Check your source mate, Zoko is out of contract at carlisleYou do know doncaster got relegated dont you? weaver just got promoted with sheff wed so no, heaton and prive are back ups so wont get sold, o dea wouldn't go to doncaster, addison set to fight for place at derby, crawly will be in the same division next year so wont want to leave, mceverlys the only believable one, they want 1mil for pugh, howard wanted by championship teams, bailey is staying at derby, isn't montgomery the seff utd captain? i know simon churchs brother and no way would he go to doncaster, ramon nunez wanted by championship clubs, same with zoko and mcmanamanPablo mills £300,000 crawley will snach ya hand off you must be made of moneyThink you need to check the facts my friend, Pablo Mills has just left Crawley and Rovers are in pole position to sign NunezNunez isn't a free, he still has at least 2 years left on his contract so there will be a feeRamon Nunez for free!! you must be having a laugh!I know a lot of Reading fans take the mick out of Church saying he is useless but he is too good for league 1.When would Doncaster ever get a 2 million transfer budget in league 1? And they would also be deducted points and fined for breaking the rule of having only 4 players on long term loan deals from their own country.Nicky Weaver - A liabiility at that level he should be in the conferenceIt's not very likely much of this. Howard seems quite likely, but being pedantic Rovers wouldn't have broken the 4 from same country rule, unless Celtic have moved countries all of a sudden?

Of that list the only believeable ones are Miles Addison, Brian Howard (who has been in talks) and Ramon Nunez who has also been a confirmed target.

Bear in mind Rovers sold Billy Sharp for a fee not long ago and expect to sell a few others for fees too.

Leicester looking to hang on to their prized assets Schmeical, Nugent and Marshall and are braced for some big money bids. But they want to bring in Danny Murphy from fulham, an unnamed right back, heskey, Jamie Vardy, Alan judge plus any replacements if/when any players leave.(7)(7)Braced for big money bids for those 3 - are you on drugs?- honestly don't worry your pretty little head - no one with big money would want them!Yeah got to agree with comment above, you will be lucky to get any viewing!Well both the comments above are bs as schmeichel has been linked with spurs & shalke, before deciding he wants to stay at the club

LeicesterLadDanny M has a year extension lined up, before taking a coaching roleNugent and Marshall... prized assets?!?

What you on up there! No wonder you struggle to get higher than midtable with that opinion.

Nigel Adkins has shown a big interest in fulham's Andy Johnson because he feels that the striker can score goals in the premiership and has much needed experience, also would cost nothing as contact is ending at the end of the season and Martin Jol and no interest in keeping him.(8)(2)Now where did he show that!
More rubbish-if he can't make the team on a regular basis for Fulham what makes him good enough for Saints?Too old and injury prone. Good in his day but a bit hit and miss now a days. Saints will focus their limited transfer funds on young players or experienced players who will play regularly and offer something to the core of the team, not just up top.

tottenham hotspur will give
harry redknapp £50m to spend with
his first priority to sign adebayor from
city for around £15m. Then he will
turn to former tottenham player
berbatov and offer Man Utd £15m for
him.(0)(29)Seriously berbatov it's a steal, your going to pay 15 million for a player out of contract well doneIs that after tax tee hee.None of them r worth 15 millionIf ur gonna make something up,check ur details first.Berbatov is free out of contractWhat a massive waste of money. Better strikers out there for less. Berbatov is lazy and ditched spurs before - you shouldn't welcome him back even if he's free.


08 May 2012 16:23:09
Right With all these Rumours about Southampton signing Jay Rodriguez or who ever is rubbish when he played against us at St Marys last season he was shocking! and As for Matt Jarvis would be a decent signing but can see him going to your Fulhams and Everton stature of club!(9)(4)Ok judge a players ability on one game, if you actually watched him you would notice who good he actually is. We burnley fans are resound to losing him, but not to a team like Southampton he is too good. Someone like everton or fulham an established team not a team likely to go straight back downSaints are not likely to go down, they have a very good chance of doing well next season. It amazes me when ppl look into their crystal ball and just say "yep they are going straight back down" I think its just more wishful thinking on your part.What person wrote this why would he go to fulham they are a small club everton and saints will struggle he should be in a top six clubHe's class and would be a great signing. That said, i suppose Fox and Cook were too good for us as well?First saints fan that actually talks sense...Rodriguez, great player & looks like a real prospect, Just because he didn't put in an exciting performance at St Marys like we all know he can do doesn't mean he's 'Rubbish' If maybe you look at some of his other games your realise why he's rated so highly, to add further using your theory of judging players after bad performances, does this mean that Lambert is rubbish because as a Saints fan I can remember watching many games where you wouldn't have even noticed he was playing.Idiot.



08 May 2012 16:22:28
West ham to spend big if promoted

Potential Ins:

niko kranjcar - Tott
defoe - Tott
wilfried zaha - Crystal Palace
matt phillips - Blackpool
matt jarvis - Wolves

Could cost around £15-20mil


Should be atleast 5-8 players which
could possibly bring in around £5-7mil(4)(25)Defoe wouldnt come to us and we wouldnt want him after the way he acted to get a transferHow much you value jarvis at hes worth 8-10 mill {Ed025's Note - in disney world!.....5m tops..Could cost 15-20m!

i think it could cost doubleExcellent - the sort of spending that should ensure administration to go with their next relegation :)

leicester want fulhams dickinson etuhu, danny mirphy and simion davies(8)(11)I would take all of them danny murphy is just what we need and they will all provide experienceI want pippa middleton but my chances are about as good as leicester signing those players.Simon Davies and Dicksa may well move - though Etuhu is good enough for bottom half Premiership. Danny Murphy is staying - one more year playing, then coaching job


08 May 2012 16:13:12
Bit of Stoke news

Kenwyne Jones is interesting QPR who failed in a January move

Ricardo Fuller will make his last Stoke appearance in one form or another at the weekend

Many outs for the Potters in the Summer and a lot of interest in fringe players as Pulis wants more strength in depth

Robert Huth has a new deal on the table but a return to Germany remains his preference

Stoke have made an approach to Liverpool for one of their big money misfits. Charlie Adam seems to be the general consensus.

Matt Phillips also on the Potter's wanted list as is a foreign striker.(7)(12)Adam will be at anfield next season,remember this post when new season kicks of.I think its kuyt they like mate

The best talent seen at Posh for years.Antonio signing for wednesday

Peterborough's Paul Taylor is set to join Reading for a fee in the region of £2.5m + keeper Alex McCarthy(6)(6)NEVER GUNNA HAPPEN! McCarthy is way too good for peterborough and will be Reading number 1 when Feds leavesIm not even a reading fan but seriously why do you want a player that only scores about 12 goals in the championship for the premiership and alex mcarthy is the best keeper you have and taylor is worth 1 million not 2£2.5m is worth 10 times the Peterborough squad put together and McCarthy is a future England keeper. Like hell that will happen! (From a Leeds fan)


08 May 2012 16:00:42

ps hope the changing rooms are roomy at
the training or it,s hello sailorI've been to West Ham and Millwall to watch games this year as well as Charlton and I don't see them struggling but I think promotion is a bit too much of an ask. You never know who they will sign though, they did pretty well in that dept last year. 8th - 10th at best

Rumour has it that Charlton will be in administration in June due to the ridiculas amount of players supposedly joining the club.(19)(5)If that is tue fa rules state any club going into administration during the close season the team concerned would be relegated 2 divisions so i doubt chrlton would go into administrationI think the poster was joking! On this site Charlton are buying everyone!

Wolves to sign Gary Hooper for 4 million from Celtic(0)(25)Not if Charlton sign him first mateNeither will. If a championship team couldnt sign him last jan, i doubt either of you two could now. Plus, they asked for at least 8mil. ridiculous rumour, neither of you will get him.He has sign a 4 year deal and would cost about double the 4 million you state, plus he said it's his ambition to play Champions League.Stop dreaming childrenHooper is a celtic player so he wont go down a level will heHa ha,best one today so far.Lol why would he want to play any more league 1 football i think we beat you in pre season with our reserves more or less so shows you how good you are n id value him at 2 mil only scored in scotland43 goals from 80 appearances for Scunthorpe in the championship outscoring newcastles 35 mill striker andy carrol and who cares what value you put on him you nugget we knocked back 6 mill in jan from southampton

Charlton to sign everybody that Reading and Southampton havent signed...according to this forum(15)(3)Tell me about it.. I come in and we've gone and signed every fooking player in the worldLooks like Charlton, Leicester, Reading and Southampton will have 75 man squads next season judging by this boardThats because we have MONEY!!!!!That is the same with any club getting promoted and have money to spend. It is just a rumour page, don't take it too serious. As a Reading fan, I have laughed at some of the players we have been linked with."As a Reading fan, I have laughed at some of the players we have been linked with" As a Charlton fan I've had the same. As the kids were off over the bank holiday they got a little carried away.Im quite enjoying it, we (reading) never get mentioned anywhere and if you take it all seriously you're on the wrong site

Leeds to sign rickie lambert for 3 million(10)(44)Good oneStarting to think some of my fellow Leeds fans don't appreciate the predicament the club is in. We are looking at our best players leaving this summer, not signing Championship top scorers.You should be on
stage with jokes
,like thatIm a leeds fan lambert aint coming,and as for previous poster were in a very healthy financial position contrary to your comments. theres a big difference in having it n uncle ken letting us spend itWe'll be lucky to get £300k from our benevolent chairman.Take a step back for a second and think to yourself why on warth he would do that!
Submitting daft posts like that simply make u look stupid.


08 May 2012 15:23:28
All these rumours about Jay Rodriquez going for around 5 million is aload of rubbish. he will go for around 8 million.. he's only 22 years old, english and has a very bright future ahead.(6)(16)"Only" £5m? Even that is more than he is worth. Top strikers from last season in the Championship went for around £2.5m-£3.5m (Graham, Morrison etc) and they are players who are ready for the top flight (unlike Rodriguez). Due to his age he may go for £5m but £8m? No chance.


08 May 2012 15:19:49
Have this turned into the charlton rumours page, or is there one poster trying to be clever dck?
Well done on being promoted but try and post all your silly rumours on your own page. Nobody cares(8)(2)Maybe you could tell who Charlton will not be signing then the rest of us can sort it out
between us
ps please leave messi off your listCharlton fans starting to get way ahead of themselves with silly talk me thinks.You will have noticed that it was bank holiday and the kids were off school!

If we signed Emile Heskey it wouldnt be a bad idea.

Shame on any team who pays his wages.

Is it possible Ipswich will let him leave this summmer? Reading your forum appears quite a bit of change is planned.(3)(16)Your scouts are a bit thick then as Charlie Austin plays for Burnley!I should sack your scouts if I were you!

Premier League rumours:

Norwich have failed in bids to sign Gary Hooper, Jordan Rhodes and Jay Rodriguez. Paul Lambert is still keen to sign a striker though.

Tottenham will attempt to sign Blackburn's Yakubu for £3m. Also looking in to Athletic Bilbao's Llorente but they could resign Berbatov from Man Utd instead.

Southampton looking in to Celtic's central defender and Scottish PFA player of the year Charlier Mulgrew. Celtic's asking price of £5m could be a put off.(4)(6)And you wont get him anyway,so dream on

matt jarvis looking for new club with liverpool, qpr, reading and southampton all intersted(11)(9)As a Wolves fan I can safely say cash in , he is not that good & easily replaceable.He wont move to any of these clubs because most of them will be in the championship by this time next season (except liverpool) and he wants 1st team footballIts naive to think all the newly promoted teams will go straight back down. Just saying, loads of people wrote off Norwich and Swansea and look how well they have done. Also Blackpool were unfortunate to go down last season.

On another note I rate Jarvis, one of the PLs most underrated players IMO

Atkins will look mainly to domestic player because of his regime dictates the squad should be 60% bias towards homegrown tallent.

Thus Curtis Davies for 3m would be something up his street to strengthen his defensive line.

Either Jake Livermore or Mark Davies are possible midfield additions.

Mat Jarvis and Robert Snodgrass would offer flair and creativity on the flanks.

Dont think much money will be spend on the forwards as we have 3 competant players.

Will need to look at RB alternatives, not sure whether Clyne has the mentality to be first choice prem RB. May look to foreign leagues here.(8)(9)Livermore would be the best signing here, lets get him...I think if Livermore signed it would be on loan, thats more realisticThese are hardly rumours, simply personal opinions.
I think the intention to produce home grown talent is worthy, but with Saints promotion to the Premiership two years ahead of target I believe they will have to be relaxed about that initially. Good talent coming through but a lot of it still requires some experience.Nigel will suprise a lot of people by getting a striker early. He has a desire to score goals and won't settle for Lambert, sharp (too slow) and lee who has been injured most of his Saints career.Just because your promoted saints it doesnt mean you can sign any player you like. ive read through all posts and according to your dazed fans you will sign 47 players most of which being premier league or spl stars. get realAbove post - Do you really believe every post on this site? Do you really believe some of these rumours are being made by real Saints fans or Leciester fans or Charlton fans? Or do you think theres a chance some people are taking the mick...Bloody hell.

Emile Heskey to join Bristol city after former england teammate david james reccomended them as a good cclub to join(2)(19)Wants to stay in the PL. Bristol City a good club to join? You're fending off the administrators... dear me.The club that just dropped him?Fending off the administrators?

Get your fact right please. We have a majority owner who is funding the club. ALL significant debt is to him. Until and unless he asks for it back ther eis NO question of bankruptcy. He hasn't so it is a nonsence. The club makes a loss each year, this is true but since Mr Lansdowne is (for the foreseeable) willing to bear this, there is NO issue of administrators. PLEASE get your facts straightHeskey's not going to bristol. please get your facts rightI am a Bristol city fan of 25 years, I have close ties with the club, I also heard that we will go into administration in the near future, hence Colin Sexton leaving the club, he did not want to be the face in charge, watch this space,Utter garbage!
You are obviously NOT a BCFC supporter to post such drivel. Any monies owed by the club are to one man who has put his son as Vice Chairman and is, in his words 'in for the long term'. This is also the owner that is fighting a daft village green application using all his powers in order to pay for a £92M stadium. That doesn't sound like a club in trouble to me. I can only assume you are a supporter of 35 years but of the 'other' Bristol club, you have my sympathies.
AS for Heskey, not what BCFC need atall.

08 May 2012 10:21:07
No more a breeding ground for success than say Watford (Barnes / Young / Graham makes your list look a bit 3rd rate) - the reason people don't like you (yes we know you don't care) is because you are such an unpleasant bunch and even imagining that Henry or trotter are worth half what you say is deluded - Morison fee was half what you quoted by the way!

Millwall rejected a 2 million pound bid for him so why would Millwall then sell them for less(1)(4)

You're well suited to each other; however, considering the way WoLOLves treated him after he was interviewed a few months ago, why on earth would he want to go there now when the WBA job is available?Not sure your 100% right about Bruce, i gather Terry Connor is to be offered the position, but Bruce was interviewed over the week-end- againThis is so far from the true you can laugh as he has already turned the job down in january which is why he isnt there now

Reading will now begin in an attempt to sign relegated blackburn rovers striker Yakubu.

Although he is fond of the club, he aswell as the club realise that he desires a higher quality of football, and that is exactly what Reading can offer.

Although other teams are interested Reading seems the obvious choice as not only would he pair well with Roberts, but also as the club will be able to offer him the first team football he wants.

To the guy who posted this load of waffle: 06 May 2012 11:02:11
Dougie Freedman to be offered the West Brom job, with an unnamed director of football. Jeremy Pearce is trying to cut costs at the club and has seen the good job Freedman has done at Crystal Palace with very little money. A director of football will be appointed to give experienced advice to Freedman. Certain players will be sold by the club, and very little will be spent, a big rebuilding job will be on Dougie Freedman's hands. The club are rumoured to be only offering £2m for transfers regardless of player sales.

West Brom already have a Sporting and Technical Director so you've just managed to prove your chat a load of the brown stuff.(4)(12)

Apparently a done deal if you failed in the play-offs. Is he a good signing? (to be completed obs)I've seen this guy play in the Championship for a few years now and I can't see what all the fuss is about! Lightweight and goes missing in games, especially the big ones like yesterday. Yes he can shoot from distance but i think he'll get found out in the Prem.Its nice to read a fan having nice things to say nice things about a departing player. Hope u make it to prem nx season after going so close few times. Ncfc matt

Why does southampton think jarvis is the answer to survival he is awful you need to do better than that to stay up trust me(10)(7)Thats why he got capped for England last year and is worth around 6mil. You have no idea what your talking about so just give up.Ah finally, someone with premiership experience and the knowledge to keep us up! Please please please travel down South, and apply to replace Adkins, we need you. You know so much! .... Idiot.Oh yeah, cos everyone knows he'll be the only signing and the one to single handedly keep us up.

In fact, that points to the fact there is a chance. Grow up.I wonder how this poster will feel come seasons end? Sick, I hope.Would you be the same person who said Saints would struggle in the Championship last season, and we maintained a position in the top 2 all season?
If I fancied a little flutter I would go for Saints finishing between 10th and 12th place next season, but then every "expert" on football has been proven wrong many times over, so let's wait and see.You're right. Mid table would be terribly disappointingDear God! That is all......Straight back down,only way they are going lolCannot believe some people's delusion. Any knowledgeable fan will take 17th next season with both hands. Staying up is the priority, we've done this in 3 seasons since admin so have completely rebuilt, hardly had time to look back and see what we've accomplished before predicting mid table.Who are these sour idiots probably Pompey fan who have no fans or future

luke shaw wont be joining yeovil from southampton. nigel adkins has already said that he will play apart in the team for the premier leauge, new rules say that so many players have to be home grown, adkins said he will play youth in leauge games(8)(1)The loan was suggested through to Christmas, so it could still have legs.Shaw and other youngsters will need experience,soa loan would seema good move.....and adkins has never said, he will be playing league games next season,in public unless you are privy to private conversations

Jamie Mackie to Cardiff City for a fee no one is aware of at the moment, all we know is that he is high on Cardiff's and Brighton's list. Craig Noone is moving to the welsh capital for around £850,000 after realising Brighton are nit as good as Cardiff. Danny Ward (Huddersfield) is also another player Cardiff are interested in.
C'mon Seaguls!

yeh okay then mate. you can have nooney anyway he's been crap since you lot were interested. Only had about 1 month where i would have said he was worth £1million+ so pay £1million and he's yours!

Just hearing from my sauces that Bolton WILL NOT have to worry about relegation as QPR WILL be deducted a minimum of 10 points as punishment for breaching rules over a player they 'BOUGHT' in January. I CANT NAME THE PLAYER, - BUT PLEASE , WATCH THIS SPACE ....

Now relegation has been confirmed, Blackburns Yakubu will be heading to join Jason Roberts at Reading.(20)(15)Hope so but i reckon other clubs will be looking at him feel sorry for blackburn cause they have never had any support from there ownersThis is what happens when clubs have foreign owners who are just interested in making money and have no interest in the club structure etc. I also feel incredibly sorry for Steve Keane the way he has been treated by fans has at times been disgusting.You are supposed to encourage your players and get behind them.How were they expected to do well last night when all they could hear was "keane out" . It is the owners fault that this club has gone down as they know nothing about football and do not want to spend any money. {Ed025's Note - good post mate...keane is the victim here, the guy tried his best, venkys promised more than they delivered, yet the so called supporters vented their frustrations on keane..very unfair imoYeah really mateOr support from there fans. If we get the Yak we need to either introduce a young striker from our Academy or buy a young ST. This will allow the young striker to gain much needed experience from top pro's.Blackburn's fans are as much to blame as the owners, manager and players - if you got behind the team and manager im sure you would have stayed upReading fan saying no support from our fans are you kidding you have never had any supportersNever sign for reading small club still has goals in himI love it when muppets who know nothing about the club or football say its the fans fault. We've always been behind our team, but the demonstrations have been aimed at Steve Kean and Venky's for thinking that a worse run of results than Paul Ince's days were acceptable. If a packed out crowd cheer on a talented team, who is run and managed by demented chimpanzees on fizzy sweets, that aint gunna change results, so why applaud someone who has no idea wot they're doing......get a clue!

Sheffield wednesday have offered around 750k for antonio with also a possible loan deal with adam le fondre .

Whittingham and Le Fondre?! B'ave! They'll both be in the Prem.Wednesday will sign no one because they are not a big club anymoreLOL Dream onYou wont get alfie(le fondre) hes too good for the championship and will prove his worth in the prem with reading.

Doncaster are set to sign Ramon Nunez and brian Howard in the next 14 days
Also Habib beye is to stay at the yorkshire side
El-hadji diouf
Pascal chimbonda (wanted to stay)
Habib Bamogo
Mamadou Bagayoko
Sam Hird
Adam Lockwood
John Oster
Oscar Radford
All are not having contracts offered
Expect 15/17 new players to be coming in at doncaster(8)(13)Where is this money coming from as you are relegated?As a Donny fan i can't see this been true. Hird had a great season, Oster good in parts, Radford surely one for the future however could be pushed back with the emergence of James Husband and Locky did well when he played in parts, changed my opinion on him. Good backup defender that lacks a bit of pace, but reads the game well. For the rest all I can say is that they probably won't be missed. If this is true, I will be utterly shocked.
