Kenny awaits deal for 'new Chicharito'

Liverpool will wait until Mexican teenage striker Marco Bueno turns 18 next year before stepping up their bid to sign him.

The Reds entered the race to sign one of the stars of this summer's World Under-17 championships in July and brought the Pachuca player over for a ten-day trial in August.
But Bueno returned without penning a contract and made his first-team debut for the Mexican top flight club over the weekend.
However, newspaper reports in central America claim Liverpool plan to sign Bueno when he comes of age on March 31 next year.
Andres Fassi, sports vice president of Pachuca, said: "We received a letter last week from Liverpool, who want the player to go there when he turns 18.
"Maybe Liverpool will then make an offer, but that would not be until he is 18 years old, when FIFA's laws allow."
Liverpool are also tracking Gary Cahill,Nolan Roux and Eden Hazard.(13)(13)

Well if Liverpools have to wait till nxt yr to sign him it will be too late. Once the big clubs ie Man Utd,Man Cty,Chelsea,Arsenal,Spurs,Newcastle,and of course the spanish and italian clubs show interested then Grumpy Dogleash will miss out.Bueno hasn't played enough international games to get a visa.
So, Unlucky with you're false rumours.And don't worry man u have already looked at him he can not get in to uk yet but man u have looked at options of getting him international clearance with playing for Mexico or getting him in to maybe turkey or Portugal so then could get a uk visa u can not forget that thanks to little pea every player in Mexico wants to play for man u

Arsenal will sign Salomon Kalou for around £5m this January, the wing forward has admitted his admiration for Arsene Wenger before who tried to sign him before from Feyenoord before losing out to Chelsea.(18)(28)Good, thats Arsenal down then.Arsene had alway admired him i reckon hed do well playin week in week out the lads a good playerThat just sums up what standard arsenal are aiming for then, no more trophys for another 10 years or so then.........Arsenal have not got a Kal-ou.2 the second poster. WEnger is clueless. He admired Mata and Hazard as well. Kalou is nothing but average. Thats the players we are looking at. Average, rejects and youngsters. Wenger done a great job but he is clearly mad now. I am fully behind "Arsene bye bye" banners. We are 8th highest brand in sports world. What a joke AFC is becoming now.That's unfair maybe the Johnson's Paints TrophyThe problem hear lies with that gunners are not a top club never have been only consistent sides can say that ! Not a chelski or city pay for it what they have been in the past is a top side and out of that the gunners have been one the top sides ever invested side but where a top club will be planning and bringing players in or though the academy where as gunners have to wiat for the side to die out and then bring in a new one and then wiat for that to develop by time it dose players want to leave to win things

charlton should sign jordan rhodes from huddersfield(5)(25)You couldn't sign Gary RhodesHe will sign for Glasgow RangersWhy would the richest club in league 1 (huddersfield) sell their best goal scorer to promotion rivals.

A pile of crap?

Bilel was watched by scouts from Celtic at Crewe and I'm told thats not the first time they've looked at him.

Hall? Signing his deal in the summer was a thank you to the Club for standing by him. Too good a player to stay at Roots Hall and he will not sign a second time.

Grant has wanted out for absolutely ages.

Ferdinand will prove this season he's too good for this Club and like Hall won't re-sign again as there will be a host of takers.

All contrinue to be unhappy on the financial and wages side of things but this is diluted by the position in the League of the team.

Weaken the strength of the rose tinted glasses.(4)(12)First of all its not rose tinted its being realistic,

Mohsni has not been scouted and my sources are very high in the club.

Hall is very pleased to be at the club and is unproven at higher level and he knows that so he wont be going.

Grant has been wanted but not at the moment wait until next summer not Jan as you stated.

Ferdinand same as hall.

The club is secure on the finanical side for now.

What ever your sources get some new ones.2 disagree with you.Anyone can come onto this site and click buttons.

Are you a Colchester fan?There are getting to be a lot of snipes at Southend, even though i never see any responses from their fans. Its kind of harsh. Shouldn't Colchester fans pick on Wycombe and that as well? None of Southend's players are on the move, as far as I've heard, and no-one has followed up interest in Grant.


09 Oct 2011 14:48:06
Blues news:

By the end of the month Paul Sturrock and Graham Coughlan will have gone to Plymouth.

Bilel Mohsni will go in January as he'll be out of contract in May.

Anthony Grant To leave in jan oo next summer.

Ryan Hall and Kane Ferdinand to quit next summer with only a year left on their deals.

All four won't sign extentions whether the team goes up or not.(6)(13)What a pile of crap. Why would they go to the bottto club Plymouth and leave potential league 2 champions.

No one is intrested in Grant or Mohnsi

Hall and Ferdinand owe the club so expect them to sign aswell.

Ignore this tripe


09 Oct 2011 14:10:18
Leeds United striker, Billy Paynter (Questionable?!?) will be offloaded as soon as possible to keep the wage bill down. Possible destinations looks like Scunthorpe or Preston.

Martin Skrtel may be sold in January with Bayern Munich and PSG interested in the player Liverpool will be looking for around £8m. Daglish brought in Sebastian Coates from Nacional for £7m this summer and is planning a £10m raid of Bolton for Gary Cahill this January as he continues the search for Jamie Carragher's successor.(8)(17)8million? You on something or what? ha ha dreaming scousers....again....after Cahills performances this season and especially on Friday evening I don't think King Kenny should bother.... LFC dodged a bullet by not signing him this summer....

walsall to sign freddy eastwood on deal to end of season and michael knightly on loan until jan(3)(22)I no knightlys brother and he very interested to join walsall on short term deal so he can regain his fitnessIf this happens the Walsall attendance for their next game will go up by at least one.Clint Eastwood would be more appropriate for you cowboys.Knightly wouldn't have to drop any lower than the Championship to get a loan deal.


07 Oct 2011 17:09:15
Portsmouth Owners will make 10 million available for new players in January, will it be Cotterill spending it, we need more quality and depth.(2)(34)Firstly u lucky to still be going as a club and should not be able to spend a pennie I my opinion but hey go on spend spend spend when don't come off belly up never learnI agree pompey should be banned from signing anyone for at least 3 yrs its a disgraceErm, why? These are new owners. The old owners are being chased by the new owners to pay up the small businesses(creditors) owed monies in the CVA. PFC cannot buy anyone without the deal(wages, etc) being within the guidelines stated in the CVA and the FA giving it the greenlight.If you look at the tevez saga at west ham even though it happened under the previous owners the new owners were held accountableThe trouble with that is the Tevez saga was a breach of transfer/3rd party rulings NOT financial/admin issues. The club is accountable not the new owners, hence why the CVA is in place to see that the clubs internal finances are kept within ceratin agreed parameters and therefore allowing the clubs outstanding creditors to be paid the agreed 20p in the 1.PFC have cheated thier debtors out of millions, and should have been made to repay the debt in full before allowing to make 10m avaiable for transfers - they have been let off very lightly and the fans took the glory knowing they were operating outside of thier means; or basically cheated the system and the rest of the clubs operating with the regulations.The old owners new owners who cares it is same club !!Pot kettle scummers, holding company need i say anymore!! Our football depts are paid straight away, as of small creditors they will be paid under the cva guranteed. A club and fan base cant be blamed for bad owners can they, new owners new ball game so change the tune, yawn!!There's a b in debt my six fingered friend


07 Oct 2011 16:34:52
Spurs have jumped the que ahead of liverpool for Max clayton of crewe and ahead of arsenal for southamptons luke shaw, both kids have said they would jump at the chance to join the london outfit.(9)(20)Funny that as clayton has 100% said no to spurs honestly have a lookFunny that as the report has come from spurs, non have said no at this stage, but both have said they would jump at the chance to join, the only kb spurs have had is the same as liverpools with the young lad greenJust out of interest where exactly has Shaw said he would jump at the chance of joining Spurs?Not sure of his latitude or longitude? But he was somewhere in southampton!! Kid I know at charlton plays with him for england and he told me, the lads an honest sortAnother diluted spurs fan! lolFunny that clayton said no was on sky sports so first person was right spurs fan sit down

07 Oct 2011 14:54:52
David Moyes will be the next Bristol City manager if as expected the new stadium will be given the go ahead.The court ruling against a 'judicial review' is expected later this month. Major investors Lansdown and Dawes will then start their programme of injecting funds into project and backing the new manager with cash they have held back until the final barriers have been lifted(6)(31)Seriously, er no go back to fairy landStop dreaming and wake up. Dont think Moyes is that desperate to belittle himself at your relegation fodder team.Lol.

I love some people on this site. Never fail to bring a smile to my face!Im a city fan and i find it embarrising that you think he'll come to us :L. Although Moyes did apply for the job many years ago but we turned him down!That is just about the most ridiculous ting i've ever heard. It wouldnt even happen on Football Manager or anything like that; no virtual reality could predict such an event.
wallyAs if a manager of that calibre would go to dive like bristol cityAre you for real pal yeah he will drop in to lower league ffs get a gripHe's waiting for the utd job


07 Oct 2011 13:25:13
Millwall have just signed QPR Striker Patrick Agyemang on loan with a view to a perm deal in January if all goes well.(7)(9)Why isnt it on the official mfc website or on skysports.As much as id love him to join it was reported in the papers he wanted to go to a bigger club for more wages.We couldnt get puncheon because of money and i cant see us getting him sorryA bigger club than Millwall, what like Welling United or Forest Green?

07 Oct 2011 08:59:51
Liverpool are going to make a £12m bid for Keisuke Honda come January and an £8m bid for Gary Cahill. Maxi Rodriguez and Martin Skrtel are not favoured by Kenny and both are likely to be shown the door. Liverpool have been monitoring a number of forwards for next summer as the likes of Kuyt and Bellamy are both over 30 and probably won't be at the club in 2 or 3 years time. Gonzalo Higuain is being tracked but he is unlikely from what i've heard Luuk de Jong,Welliton Silva,Nolan Roux and Lacina Traore are the forwards being looked at not exactly household names but we'll just wait and see what happens. Liverpool are planning a big summer move for Eden Hazard around £30m + Joe Cole but they face competition from Arsenal and apparently Real Madrid but Madrid ARE not might be they are trying to sign Neymar and with the likes of Ronaldo, Di Maria and Neymar to name a few contending with Hazard for a starting place he may not get a starting role which he has mentioned would be crucial in his choice of club.(16)(18)Typical dreaming Liverpoodles. You are stuck with the players you have until next year....suck it up.Thought the emblem of liverpool was a liver bird not a cuckoo, as it seems that's where most are living now, cuckoo landHonda & Hazard? dream on .. You haven't even not a place in the Champions League.
Liverpool are no Man City .. You really should not think you are!.
Suarez has been the only good player who has came to Liverpool & done any good.Christ you scousers really do live on a differant planet from the rest on us dont you !


07 Oct 2011 08:43:03
Dave Jones has exccepted the Bristol City job, there will be an announcement later today.(11)(31)Hope this is true, so he dosn't come to Forest.Look at the Bristol City site, 5/6 to be finalised interviews today and early next week final two to be grilled by the board. This from Mr C Sexstone8/10/11- Where was the announcement?-must have missed it


07 Oct 2011 08:11:53
Freddy Eastwood told he can leave Coventry by Thorn, and has said he is interested in returning to Essex with a move to Colchester United.(15)(8)


07 Oct 2011 07:13:11
Sven Goran Erickson is to step up his attempt to sign Ross McCormack from Leeds in January. It is understood that Sven sees the Scottish goal machine as a long term fix for the lack of goals at the King Power stadium and believes that the self styled "RMac44" possesses clear Premiership quality.(4)(28)Which is exactly why we would not let him go, to help our own promotion push!Nah, he's got three years on his deal and Leeds are paying him a fortune. This isnt happening. Personally, I'd consider Beckford plus cash.
wallyTotal rubbish, the 'lack of goals' comes in the form of Nugent being out for a month (scored on his return V's Derby) and Beckford (out injured) only having had 3 games for his new team. There is no panic and no rush to sign anyone else. Nugent and Beckford should both be fit to face Birmingham after the break for the first time.Leeds dont have a promotion to push and he's hardly a goal machineWhy should he want to sign for leicester ,you have signed god knows how many players and still wont go up,Unbeaten in 7 league games, 6pts off top spot, signed fewer players than Derby, spent less than West Ham... back to sleep for you little fella


07 Oct 2011 01:23:15
Grant Holt is to leave Norwich and head to Leicester for an undisclosed fee at the start of the next transfer window. Holt being one of the Norwich's most saleable assets will depart to increase the available transfer funds come January when Norwich look to make the signings that will ensure Premiership survival.

While some Norwich fans may be dismayed by the sale of the clubs talisman, after two highly successful seasons with the Norfolk club and many memorable performances. The board and Paul Lambert aim to pull off a piece of transfer magic that would take attention away from Holt's departure. With an audacious bid to lure Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, who is yet to claim a regular starting place this season at White Heart Lane to Carrow Road.

Norwich are to risk the big money deal in a bid to ensure goals that could be vital in helping the club to avoid the drop first time round. With the Norwich strikers (Holt, Martin, Morrison and the injured Vaughan) presently struggling to find consistent goal scoring form in the Premiership, the club will look to Defoe's proven prowess in front of goal to keep them up.

Although if Norwich are unable to guarantee the signature of Defoe prior to the opening of the January transfer window, Holts transfer to Leicester will be postponed until Norwich have tied up the services of an experienced Premiership goal scorer like Lois Saha or Peter Odemwingie.

(Both only being examples of possible alternative targets.)(5)(26)I think you should have had an early night. You seem convinced of this happening, why's that then? Leicester have Beckford, Nugent, Vassell and Shluup, why do we now want Grant Holt?Never going to happen,Holt will have plenty to offer this season and Defoe would be way outside our pay structure, Lambert will more than likely try to strengthen the forward line in January but true to form it will probably be a player no one has dreamt up yet.OTBCTo be totally honest, i can see this happening. This is just the sort of crazy risk Norwich's board would take. The fact is though, Defoe would NEVER join a club that has just got into the Premier League, especially as he's just got back in the Spurs line-up. Tottenham may well accept Norwich's bid, following the sale of Holt, but the player won't accept it, and thats what matters these days. And the other two mentioned, Saha and Odemwingie, will never be let go by their clubs. This is the reason i think Norwich will be going down.
wallyWhy do you need you really need someone to spell it out you crisp muncher, apart from Shluup your so called goalscorers are not hitting the net doh 13 goals in ten league games is not a great return is you understand nowUmm, one striker (Nugent) has been out injured for a month and the other (Beckford) is also out injured and has only played 3 times for Leicester. Shluup is 18yrs old and has onlyu just made the first team, he was touted as going out on loan only a couple of weeks ago, and the forth, Vassell has never been a goalscorer - if you knew more about the game you'd know these things, but you've just proven the depth of your knowledge with you childish rant, this isn't Fifa little man, this is real life.Just a point Grant Holt is a diving donkey with less talent than a dead goldfishOh, and Shluup has only scored one league goal (V's Derby when he came on as a sub) yet you seem to think he's the main man... jog on, and learn something about real football while you're at it.Holt to leicester dont make me laugh not only is he a forest faliure and reject we could buy 5 of him in fact prob nick defoe off you carrot crunchers as much better club and going forward not back see u in a few years as our paths wont cross again till u back in prem lol lol lol xMain poster, its White HART Lane! Defoe would NOT join you bunch of no-hopers....EVER.I have been a Norwich supporter all my life, and yes if this did happen I would be over the moon with a signing like that... but it is highly universalistic a fairytale dream. (For now, haha)
And Leicester being a better club... that's debatable. As it seems to have become a stereotypical view every supporter in the country thinks their club is bigger and better than anyone else's. For example a team like Southampton should of never been relegated as far as League 1, but it happened they lost their status a big club and have slowly been rebuilding, just as Norwich did to get back into the prem. Just as Leicester have to as well, a club is only as big as its current achievements, not what's happened in the past.

But anyway the point I was going to make originally... I find it so hilarious how worked up people get over something that is merely a rumour on an internet web page, chill out... I don't think we will sing Defoe, maybe Eto, or Messi instead... but seriously guys chill... peace out (OTBC)Have Heskey?
A bit more likely.I'm a norwich fan have been all my life and have never heard so much twaddle!!for a start holt is happy here and no way would defoe come here.we wouldnt be able to afford his wages!!Defoe to Norwich................................ NOPE
