Blackburn Bolton and Everton scouts where all at ashton gate today i asked them if they where looking at maynard they said him and you young deffender wilson where attracting lots of interest from the PL(5)(11)Really? There are so many things I am laughing about this post! Firstly how do you know that they are scouts for those clubs? Secondly if so how did you manage tonspot all three in the same game thirdly why on earth would scouts tell a random person who it is they are looking at?

Wayne Bridge close to agreeing terms with West Ham after snubbing Southampton(13)(33)Saints don't need him anyway,we're well covered in that position,good luck to him
but we don't need to keep looking back to
former players.Love Bridgey but we have four left backs, we don't need a fifth. Good luck to him and West Ham if this is true.


10 Sep 2011 13:05:56
Watford Striker Gavin Massey will sign for Yeovil on loan tomorrow(5)(2)To be completed on monday


10 Sep 2011 12:01:56
Southampton FC are in pole position to re-acquire the services of Wayne Bridge on a 3 month loan. The opportunity to pair Wayne Bridge and Adam Lallana down the left wing is too hard for Adkins to dismiss. An additional 3 month loan to cover the absence of Dan Seabourne is also being progressed, as Adkins is conscious of the recurring injuries of Rahdi Jaidi. Expect the imminent arrival of Danny Wilson from Liverpool until xmas to add depth to the squad. All information reliably received from a source inside the club.(15)(21)Why? You've just signed Danny Fox. You have more left full backs than Hamley's have toys.If this happens great,but if not I guess we're pretty well covered although centre back might be a problem.we have FOUR left backs. We do not need a fifth.Now the transfer window has closed you so called saints fans are at it again with regards to loans. If Bridge is on a reported 90k a week how much can Southampton afford to pay of that.Pity Ur Talkin Through Ur Hole As Wilson Is On The Way To Leeds Which Has Been Reported In Most Newspapers, U Idiots With Your "INSIDE SOURCES" U Make Me Laugh


10 Sep 2011 11:26:58
heider Helguson to Middlesbrough on loan from qpr until january(6)(20)


10 Sep 2011 11:13:27
James Beattie has been training with saints all week, maybe just to keep fit.
However I wouldn't rule out a pay as you play deal here.(12)(21)Rubbish he only talks about the blades on talk shows and he isnt training he is seeing the family until he is fully fitNo, talkshows onlt talk to him about the blades. I assume you're getting this from SoccerAM. Plus i think this is bullcrap too.Hes not training with anybody.Training on his own ,told Helen on soccer A.M.

Also, Steven Fletcher tweeting about his not discounting a return to the turf.
ive got him on tweeter and there is nothing. his last tweet was 19 july and that was about how happy he is at wolves. also why would wolves sell there top st and highest tranfer player to a club who hope to get mid table in the fizzy pop league. unlike us how are going for mid table in the prem(0)(16)


10 Sep 2011 01:06:10
Wolves to give McFadden a trial from Blues, if he is a success Wolves will sell Jarvis in the January window and buy Gary Hooper out right from Celtic as club transfer record
well were do we start.....
Mcfadden ist from blues he is a free agent, jarvis ist getting sold and if he was it would of been in the summer and finaly olves dont want gary hooper we looked at him last seanson but we went for flechter insted and we dont need a new st and how on earth would he cost more then 7M(5)(12)He'd maybe cost 5 or 6 million at most. good player and would link uo well with fletcher. Mcfadden is also really injury prone but might be worth a punt on a free.Before anyone buys Jarvis, He'l really have to show form again. On his current form, there won't be a load of clubs queueing up to sign him. Not too bothered if we get Mcfadden or not - is he recovered/is he likely to be injury free in the future? - He'll probably join Mcleish at Villa. As for Hooper ??I will tell you right now there aint no way celtic would sell for 5 or 6mil!!! andy carroll, shane long, are the only people to compare him to and his record stands up to thiers very well. not saying he is worth anywhere near 35mil. nearer 10mil. but wolves are kidding on at that price. jamieI'm a Celtic fan and I think they'd sell for anything over 7million


10 Sep 2011 00:51:48
Offical: Notts County are in talks with Rory Fallon. Source: BBC Sport(4)(13)He is away to sign for Aberdeen


09 Sep 2011 22:13:18
Burnley have signed Stoke City defender Ryan Shotton on a season long loan(4)(26)Only allowed for 93 day loan,numptyNo they havernt and thats from a burnley fanYou were supposedly signing him permanently last month which never happened and I can't see him going out on loan as he is part of the 25 man premier league squad named by Stoke. Soares, Tonge, Pugh and Collins who has already gone to Ipswich will be the one's loaned out. Pugh is rumoured to be joining up with Leeds


09 Sep 2011 19:47:30
Emile Heskey's car seen parked at Turf Moor today - credible source. Also, Steven Fletcher tweeting about his not discounting a return to the turf.(5)(33)Bollihocks-yes fletch will return ....if we play wolves in the cup FFS.Heskey being in a clubs carpark means nothing, he was probably aiming for a different club and missed.Heskey is in good form recently, He is going NO-WHERE!Why the hell would heskey leave villa when he.s in there starting 11 and playing very well stop posting bcks.God, I hope for your sakes the rumour about Heskey is not true.If there was any justice left anywhere in our country he'd be done under trade descriptions act,
striker/goalscorer, I think not.I've a lot of time for Burnley - traditional club with decent fans. So quit the bullst about premiership players. Heskey isn't leaving Villa to play outside of the prem. As for Fletcher - He absolutely loves it at Wolves. Anyway rant over , hope your club has a decent season


09 Sep 2011 19:27:01

09 Sep 2011 17:04:57
James Beattie will move to Portsmouth on a pay as you play deal, his wife is from down south and she wants to be back close to her family, his prefered chose was Southampton but they was not interested in his services. He now looks certain to move to Portsmouth.(5)(25)I heard saints were signing him?Unfit and overweight will fit in nicelyGood move,Beattie will be really loved at
Pompey,a legend for the Skates.There is no way in which Beattie would go and play for Portsmouth.Clearly not a good enough player for Pompey. If he is overweight and still as bad as he was, he will fit in nicely with the saints. Him and Lambert can have eating comps.Lambert must be greedy he help himself to a hat-trick to keep us 2nd in the league , nice goal by matt taylor yesterday thouI thought it was you play we don't pay at PompeyOn soccer A.M he said he'd have no problem playing for pompey!.He used to be mates with Matt Taylor. I dont think he would have a problem playing for the skates. Fans wouldnt take to him and I doubt he would be good enough anyway. All this talk of getting Bridge and Beatie back is nonsence, Cortese is in no way sentimental, otherwise we would have probably had, Surman, Elliot and Same Volkes by now!


09 Sep 2011 17:02:13
I'm hearing on more than one occasion that Manager Paul Sturrock has differences of opinions with his Board at Southend United. Former Shrimpers boss and Player Peter Taylor has been mentioned as a possible successor should anything happen to Sturrock. Again so I've heard.(1)(8)


09 Sep 2011 16:30:40

09 Sep 2011 16:22:33
James Beattie is in talks with Steve Bruce over a possible free transfer to Sunderland. Bruce is wanting some more attacking options after missing out on a number of players in August. Beattie is keen to get his career back on track, whilst some people may say he is not quite good enough for the top flight, Beattie will grab the chance with both hands.(4)(16)


09 Sep 2011 16:20:30
The Danny Collins loan deal to Ipswich is almost done(13)(6)


09 Sep 2011 16:19:33

Controversial striker Francis Jeffers is in talks with Scottish Second Division side Dumbarton over a possible one month rolling contract.

09 Sep 2011 16:15:39
French attaking midfielder Willy Aubameyang has been handed a one year deal with Scottish First Division side Dundee. Dundee are still keen on bringing in some attacking options and seem to have done so with the former Kilmarnock and AC Milan player.(5)(4)


09 Sep 2011 16:11:19
Former Hearts striker Jamie Mole is on trial with Stirling Albion. Albion know they want to sign him but are worried about his fitness. Mole, who made his debut for Hearts at only 18, was quoted by a number of managers of being a top talent. The striker is keen on getting his career back on track by signing with second division Sterling and scoring goals.(3)(4)His strike record at every club is dreadful but this move could be good in terms of re building his confidence.


09 Sep 2011 16:09:35
hearts have told john sutton he can leave,.motherwell are interested in bringing him back to fir park.(4)(7)Would be sorry to see that happen especially with Kevin Kyle's future looking bleak with injury. Sutton scored 17 goals last season and no team can afford to lose someone with that capability.


09 Sep 2011 16:07:40
German defender Andreas Hinkel is currently in talks with Dundee United. Peter Houston is keen on bringing some well needed experience into his backline to push for that third place this coming season. Hinkel has had 21 caps for Germany and is looking to stay in Scotland after being released from Celtic.(3)(10)Too expensive and is training in germany. in talks with two or three german teams


09 Sep 2011 16:05:42
Former Plymouth, Coventry and Scotland defender David McNamee is on trial with former club Plymouth. Argyle are keen on bringing in some more recruits and sees the right back as a bargain, of which they couldn't get in the transfer window.(5)(6)


09 Sep 2011 16:03:22
Mark Howard has turned down a contract offer with Bardford and will sign a one year contract with Manchester City.

Mancini will sign the former Arsenal youngster over the weekend but his contract will state: 'pay as you play' status.(2)(8)


09 Sep 2011 16:00:47
Sone Aluko has today been told his trial with Juventus has not worked out and is now in talks with Colchester United. The former Arsenal youngster and current Nigeria international was released by Aberdeen after a cotract dispute and now wants to move back to England. Aluko will sign a one year deal with John Ward but won't be available tomorrow.(5)(8)Aberdeen due ~200k development compensation. (He wasn't released but offered a new contract which he turned down.)

200k for 1 year deal? Unlikely.


09 Sep 2011 16:33:09
Nick Hegarty will turn down the chance to sign a three year deal with Mansfield to return to Scotland with First Division side Hamilton on a two year contract.(1)(4)

Jason Euell is set to replace Alex Dyer as assistant manager at Charlton.

Dyer is wanted by former Club Oxford as their new manager.

Euell is good mates with Powell and has all his coaching badges as well as the full respect of all the players.

My sister is married to another Charlton player and she told me this today.(4)(10)Another Charlotn player? ... Wouldn't you just say his name :/

09 Sep 2011 12:06:18
Spurs are interested in David Beckham(17)(4)Spurs are interested in Beckham,NOT for football reasons as the guy was ste in his prime..lets face it people he was a winger who had no pace and relied on free kicks as he had nothing else in the locker.Spurs have to compete and the commercial aspect of beckham far outweigts the done by tag beckham has.


09 Sep 2011 09:59:46
I heard that Arik Yanko is set to join Southend on loan from Hapoel Tel Aviv.(4)(7)


09 Sep 2011 09:59:43
Tottenham will return with an £8million take-it-or-leave-it bid for Gary Cahill in January.(9)(14)That will be leave it then , he is currently worth twice thatAnd I think Bolton will tell Tottenham to go to hell take it or leave it {Ed002's Note - I suspect you will see interest from both Manchester United and Chelsea in the player as well.}Less than a year on contract, that's a good price now, should have sold him in summerHe's not worth twice that when he has a year left on his contract. All the Bolton fans will be crying when he goes on a bosmanEd-United for Cahill? They seem loaded at CB assuming Wio is coming back. Is he totally crocked? {Ed002's Note - There is a need to look to the longer term. How many games has Ferdinand played in the past couple of years?}Judging by the way chicharito destroyed him yesterday bolton will be lucky to get even 8m


09 Sep 2011 09:27:55
Southampton are gonna offer 4 million for super marvin sordell I think double it and you maybe slightly closer.(4)(17)Why would Watford sell Sordell for less than fat lump Wickham or totally unproven Oxlade Chamberlain - the club now has the lowest debt in the top 2 divisions and no need to sell - Marvin will go to a top 4 club in a year or 2 for 15m minWhere the hell do some of you people get your valuations from?? are playing far too much fantasy football on your play-boxesSorry, Burnley have NO debt whatsoever so no other club can beat that. TThey can equal it but not beat it.Well if Oxlaide-Chamberlian is 'unproven', then surely Sordell is aswellActually 15 Mil is probably over the top but 10 Mil is realistic given the money that was paid for Wickham and O-Chamberlain. Sordell is rated by the Watford training staff as a better player than Ashley Young and we sold him for 9 MilIf Sordell wants go leave he'll go, Saints bid 5.5m for Rodriguez - they have the money. It'll be down to the player.


09 Sep 2011 08:57:05
Tom Clarke set to sign for orient from htfc on a three month loan.(8)(4)


09 Sep 2011 02:34:26

Rovers showing just how rubbish the club is! a selling club! even little yeovil are further up the pyramid! without lambert ur nothing! put alot of money on conference football at the mem next season! no strikers mcleish old zebroski crap and harrold going bury!(15)(5)Ahaa to the City fan who wrote this. Clearly doesn't pay much attention to what goes on at his own club... Conference football? Yeah alright. Harrold to Bury? Not a chance. How much is David James on to sit on your bench again?So Rovers who think they are the biggest side in League 2 must be jokingas they dont have the biggest crowds, play on a rugby ground and are a selling club so how the hell do they think they are the biggest club in L2. They may come from a big City but thats it. small time and always will be.Aston Villa are a selling club & they are not rubbish lol.And lets leave yeovil out of this haha


08 sep 2011 19:21:01

Craig Fagan to Bradford City(15)(14)


08 Sep 2011 17:51:06
Bristol City manager Keith Millen has this week had to deal with a huge bust up in the changing room.

Whilst playing darts Jamal Campbell Ryce mistakenly lobbed a dart into Jamie McAllister's leg and a fight proceeded to happen. McAllister grabbed JCR by the neck until he was rugby tackled by David James which then caused them to fall into all the players sweets and drinks knocking them all of the table.

A riot began in the players lounge and five players were sent to hospital for check ups. Jamie McAllister has now gone on holiday to South Africa without permission leaving the club with no other option but pretend he is out injured for a few months.(10)(20)


08 Sep 2011 17:27:50
Bristol City have made a huge error in the way they have handled the nicky maynard situation. Desperate not to lose him, they are willing to make him the highest paid player in the clubs history. The offer has been on the table for nearly 3 months but nicky WONT sign because he cant see keith millen as the man to lead bristol city. Other 1st team players now want improved contracts to match the offer to maynard. campbell-ryce has got so annoyed by this he has fallen out with millen and has been transfer listed. cisse has asked to leave because he feels he should be playing, not fighting for a place on the bench. Pitman wants to leave so he can play in his natural postion. Fontaine is another player unhappy with millen and wants out.(15)(8)How do you know thisThis is a mixture of fantasy, old, disproven rumours from here and rantings from some on the supporter's forum. The offer to make Maynard the highest paid player at the club (and his refusal so far to sign) are the only truthful things hereFontaine is another player unhappy with millen and wants out.

So why did he reject Southampton to stay at City?I heard southampton weren't too keen on his ankle problems so pulled outFontaine didn't reject southampton, he failed a medical!Nope, he rejected you! Sorry to say that guys.

Lukas Jukiwitchz to hand in transfer request at coventry tomorow morning paving the way for a loan move to middlesbrough and a 1.2 million move in january(8)(24)Good guess on the spelling of the name. I will expect you to come on here with an update tomorrow explaining why this made up rumour hasn't gone through in your allotted timescale.


08 Sep 2011 16:44:25
Fomer Portsmouth and Nottingham Forest manager Paul Hart is in talks with former employee Dougie Freedman about becoming an assistant manager at Crystal Palace. Freedman is keen on adding some well needed experience to his backroom staff and sees Hart as somebody vital.(8)(9)


08 Sep 2011 16:42:14
Former Stoke and Iceland manager Gudjon Thordarson is in talks with Crewe boss Dario Gradi about becoming Technical Director. Gradi had the role a few years ago and believes someone needs to be taking on that role now. Thordarson, who has failed in becoming a manager at a number of clubs, wants a change and rejoining Crewe would be a good opportunity.(3)(7)


08 Sep 2011 16:39:19
Steve Parkin, who recently has been a First Team Coach at Hull City and Scunthorpe, is set to sign a two year deal with Bury. Richie Barker is keen on adding some experience to his backroom staff for a new campaign in League 1 and the former Barnsley boss will be labelled as assistant manager.(4)(5)The Mansfield town Connection - could be quite strong. Wish we could have got the combination of the two of them at the stags again.


08 Sep 2011 16:36:53
Glyn Hodges is set to sign a one year deal with Dutch side Ajax as First Team Coach after leaving Fulham.(1)(6)


08 Sep 2011 16:35:14
Rochdale boss Steve Eyre is set to appoint three new Youth Coaches at the club. The former Manchester City Academy boss believes in a good system and will appoint three experienced coaches. John Hendrie will sign a one month rolling contract in order to get his 'A' Licence. Television pundit Nigel Spackman will be given a role within coaching the Academy and will sign a two year contract whilst close friend Eric Winstanley will be made Head Coach after leaving his post at South African side Supersport United as Technical Director.(1)(5)


08 Sep 2011 16:31:13
Alan Knill is set to be sacked after a poor start at Scunthorpe United. The board told the former Bury boss they wanted to be in the top 6 after the first six games, which hasn't happened. Dave Bassett is the front runner for the job.(3)(17)

Forsell signs for Leeds United until January good solid Finish international to back up the striking force, with Becchio on his way back things are looking strong up front, now for the defence?(12)(6)Its until end of season not janLooking good upfront shame about midfield defence and goalkeeper


08 Sep 2011 16:25:08
Viv Anderson is set to hold talks with Celtic boss Neil Lennon about becoming his assistant. Lennon is still keen on adding to his backroom staff and believes adding Anderson would add experience to a much improving side.(2)(14)


08 Sep 2011 16:15:50
Leeds United legend Allan Clarke is set to be getting back into football. Southend United boss Paul Sturrock is said to have had a arguement with the board and could be put on gardening leave. The United board are keen to appoint somebody until January and Allan Clarke could be in line to do so.(2)(18)


08 Sep 2011 16:13:47
Paul McShane has been told by Hull boss Nigel Pearson that he will be sold in January to raise funds for another defender. McShane, recently Republic of Ireland captain, was on loan at Barnsley last season and impressed but Keith Hill has said he wouldn't like any players on loan from last season. The Oakwell club are also said to be in financial trouble so Hill probably couldn't afford the deal anyway. Leeds United could be interested in taking McShane in January as Simon Grayson has said that he 'will never stop looking to improve his defence'. The Irish defender is keen on staying in Yorkshire and is expected to talk to United once he's fully fit.(4)(3)I dont think this is very likely.

Firstly, he's injured (But should be back in training next week)

and secondly - Hull have no back up for Chester and Hobbs. If one of them got injured there is no one to replace them.Not a chance, he's on 24k a week and Papa Smuf won't pay anything like that, he had a good pre-season, he's unlikely to be going anywhere.Hull have told sonny bradley hell be in and around the squad so this could be true...from a hull a fan i hope it doesn't happen but ive heard rumours around the city that he could be on his way outIs that the Scottish Ted Bovis ??


08 Sep 2011 16:10:55
Stephen McPhail has been told by Cardiff manager Malky Mackay that he is available for a loan deal now and will be made available for transfer in January. Mackay is trying to get some big earners off the list who he didn't sign so he can still bring another couple of 'his' players in. Ipswich Town could come in for a loan offer until December which could be made permanent in January.(4)(7)He's going back to Leeds mate


08 Sep 2011 16:07:56
Walsall striker Jon Macken looks set to be released from his contract mutually after rejecting a new contract and will sign a one month rolling contract with high flying Charlton.(4)(8)Impossible - to avoid a scam like this - the rules say that only players who were free agents on deadline day can be signed by others. A loan is the only route to a signing otherwise. So unless Walsall loan him to Charlton then no deal till Jan!


08 Sep 2011 16:06:39
Peterborough United midfielder Grant McCann has signed a pre contract deal with Celtic. The Northern Ireland palymaker is keen on stay at London Road as he's captain but a bid from the biggest team in Scotland may tempt him away. It is thought Darren Ferguson is tempted by the bid, supposedly around £400,000.(3)(10)Yes i heard that he is opening an ardvark smoothie stall for the faithful and intends to perform the history of the club as a musical wearing frilly bloomers with matching pom pomsMcCann will end his career at poshRangers are the biggest club in Scotland.This is completely idiotic
Pre contracts are signed when a player is free to leave within 6 months - hence a fee would only be payable if a player is under 24. A pre contract is a contract - the player is bound by it - no use signing it if player is keen to stay - once signed it is a binding arrangement - so me thinks this is a celtic fan who wants to take a pop at rangers- its all crapMcCann = posh... He would never leaveWhere do you get the fact that Celtiv are the 'Biggest' club in Scotland? ... Its Rangers, They've won more trophies domestically than any other club in the world and have 3 the SPL the last 3 seasons on trotI have no interest in Scottish football as it's awful but Celtic are clearly the biggest team there. about the 15th biggest in britain though.Biggest team in scotland, haha thats made my day hearing that


08 Sep 2011 16:04:29
Anthony Kay has been informed by Lee Clark at Huddersfield that a bid from Premier League side West Brom but they will reject it. Kay has been in superb form over the last few seasons and has interested Roy Hodgson at West Brom. Albion could bid in January for the defensive midfielder.(4)(9)


08 Sep 2011 16:02:45
Preston striker Iain Hume is on course for signing a pre contract with Norwich City. Paul Lambert had a bid turned down on the last day of the transfer window for the Canada international but recently have had a bid of around £1.3 million accepted. Hume will continue to hold talks with City after the weekend.(3)(15)Ha ha how funny are you humey is settled and as said he is happy at preston and does not want to move pne dont need to sell,Clown how can he sign a pre-contract , thats only if you are out of contract at the end of season :) , he still got 3 years to run.A deal can be agreed whether a contract is about to run out or not


08 Sep 2011 16:00:44
Austria Wien (Vienna) are very close to agreeing terms with Reading midfielder Brian Howard. Howard was wanted by Barnsley last summer but was keen to stay away after fans turned against him at Oakwell when he left. Howard is now keen on reboosting his career by joining a European side that will feature in European competitions.(3)(7)

This has come after Millen told the former Jamaica international that he wants him to sort his attitude out. JCR is currently holding talks with Motherwell over a possible loan deal for January, which could be made permanent in the summer.

08 Sep 2011 13:04:09
Diego Arismendi could leave Stoke on loan until December by joining Blue Square Premier side Mansfield Town. Town are very keen on signing another midfielder and could see the ex Uruguay international moving until January to get fitness and form back.(2)(9)Doubt it as tony has named him in his 25 man premier league squad and in his europa league squad


08 Sep 2011 13:02:00
Patrick Cryne this week will come out and explain the financial situation at Barnsley. There are strong rumours that Barnsley could be close to administration if they don't get rid of players on pre contracts or on loan upto and in January.
-Luke Steele could be in talks with Birmingham City after he was seen around the St Andrews area on Tuesday night. Chris Hughton is keen on bringing a goalkeeper in January and the high interest in the former England under 21 keeper is never ending.
-Nathan Doyle is set to join Manchester United on trial after some very impressive performances for Barnsley last season. Doyle is only 24 years old and could sign a one year deal with United after Barnsley put a price tag on the former Hull City player of around £300,000.
-Unsurprisingly Danny Haynes looks set to leave Barnsley. Haynes is apparently entering talks with Motherwell this coming week. Haynes is wanting to move away from Oakwell after a fall out with Keith Hill, with also the wages set to be cut. Haynes could be signed next week on a pre contract agreement.
-Jim O'Brien is another player that has come under scrutiny at Oakwell and could join Rotherham United on loan next weekend until December 3rd.
-Craig Davies could end up leaving Oakwell after being told by Keith Hill the pressure is on the former Chesterfield striker to score goals. Davies is wanted by former club Chesterfield on loan and a deal could be thrashed out in the next month.
-Second choice goalkeeper David Preece will be mutually released and will sign a one month rolling contract with Swiss side FC Basel. Preece will still carry on doing journelism for Barnsley FC but is still wanting a couple more years playing professional football.
-Barnsley have accepted a £100,000 bid from Swedish side Halmstad for Serb midfielder Goran Lovre.
-Andy Gray has already been told by Keith Hill that he will be sold or loaned out and could see an incoming bid from Southampton either now or in January.(3)(17)Wot a load of bull st mate, non of this is going to happen, dream onNathan doyle at man u looool he is ste wouldnt get in my sunday sideNathan Doyle to Man United is hilarious.What a load of rubbish !!!Nathan Doyle to Man Utd is hilarious, he is tang, was at Hull and couldnt get in, technically nowhere near good enough to play at that level !


08 Sep 2011 12:55:20
Leyton Orient will sign Thomas Ince from Blackpool and Jo Kuffour from Bristol Rovers on 3 months loans tomorrow.
Dean Parratt will also arrive from Spurs next week--the club failed to sign John Bostock(4)(10)As if you clown Thomas ince has just signed for Blackpool so why would they want to let him leave he was part of the deal for charlie adam so obs holloway sees him as a good playerI am a Blackpool season ticket holder. I have no idea whether or not this rumour is correct about Thomas Ince butI wouldn't totally rule it out. It depends on how close Ian Holloway feels Ince is to starting matches for the 'Pool. If he is not ready for regular starts right away it could make sense to let him go to somewhere like Orient for three months to help him get regular first team football.


08 Sep 2011 12:50:25
Charlton manager Chris Powell said at today's press conference that he is no longer after another striker as he considers Michael Smith ready for first team action. "We were cautious initially about (Smith) but he's shown in training and a reserve game that he's up to the Standard we need in league one" Powell said.

Powell denied that he was interested in either Billy Paynter or Nathan Eccleston on loan and laughed off talk about James Constable from Oxford.(3)(3)

What a load of bcks. Firstly there is no such thing as Lancashire Radio and secondly Ollie would never let down the club he loves.(1)(10)And also you posted this yesterday , which did not happernQuite right, ther is no such thing as Lancashire Radio. However you don't have to be Einstein to work out that this could be Radio Lancashire, so stop nit-picking.Ollie has left clubs he loved more than Blackpool....Ollie is Bristol rovers through & through, blackpool are lucky to have a manager of his qualities

Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury will be sacked if they don't beat Chesterfield at weekend, it could see Jack Lester being lined up. Lester is set to retire from football after persistent injuries. Lester, who is 35, is keen on getting into a managerial career and Cherries board are keen to carry on the tradition to appoint young managers with potential.(5)(14)Is that the same jack lester who is on a two year contract....ridiculous!!


08 Sep 2011 07:48:04

Scott Loach is very close to leaving Watford after handing in a transfer request on the last day of the deadline. Loach is wanted by Chris Hughton at Birmingham and is rumoured to have had a £2 million bid rejected. The England goalkeeper may see a deal completed in January to the Midlands.(5)(8)Watfords new board have been very transparent in things that have gone on since they took over - and have said nothing about any approach for Loach or that he requested a transfer. It would also take more than 2mil to get him out of Vic Road as well. Watford don't need to sell anymore - their debt is under control which is more than can be said for a lot of Championship clubs.Sell the liability, worst keeper in the division. Not worth 2k let alone 2mill.More chance of Loach being Villa's number 2 instead of joining our poor rivals.Bham dont have 2 million


08 Sep 2011 07:40:50
Carlton Cole is already in talks with Aston Villa over a possible move to Villa Park in January. The West Ham striker has been superb this season in the Championship and is ready to move back up to the top flight. Cole will be available for around £5 million.(6)(11)I would love to see Cole in a Villa shirt AGAIN! (he was a Villa player ages ago).
But, It looks like McFadden is joining.
Heskey is in good form so far.
Cole or McFadden would be a good option for Villa.Cole has been superb... really? He's meant to be England quality and he's plying his trade in the Championship. He's not wanted by big clubs and has been labouring in the C'Ship, only a blinkered fan could describe him as being superb!5m for cole , i wunt gi over 2.5 for him


08 Sep 2011 07:36:37
David Stockdale could see talks with Middlesbrough materialise this week. Stockdale is keen to leave Fulham in January permanently and Tony Mowbray will hopefully see the deal to sign the England keeper done whilst also pushing for promotion.(1)(19)He's on loan at Ipswich and if he's going any ware on a permanent basis it will be Ipswich, But Fulham wont let their rising star move on

Kilmarnock failed with a bid for Ipswich striker Jason Scotland in the transfer window. The Scottish side have said they will go back for the Trinidad and Tobago forward next year and Scotland is reported to have been keen on moving back to Scotland if the next few months don't work out at Ipswich.(1)(6)Thatys funny cause if they could have agreed terms he would be a blackpool player now,fee was agreed with club just not with player


08 Sep 2011 07:27:34
Bad boy striker Nile Ranger is in talks with MLS side San Jose Earthquakes. Reports suggest Ranger is keen to move away from England after poor performances and stories at Newcastle United have put his promising career in doubt. Ranger could sign for Earthquakes for around £1 million.(6)(5)How can he be signing for san jose if he couldnt even get into america on newcastles pre-season tour due to his criminal record?Doubt it, as he wasnt allowed in the country in the summer along with barton.Wasn't he rejected a visa for Newcastles pre-season tour of America? Doubt he'd gain one to stay there permanently.Ranger will not get into USA cos of his criminal record, hopefully he will go to Birmingham. Personally I would pack his bag and drive him there .Over rated and much loved by the Geordie nation, no reason why he hasnt scored a top flight goal yet


08 Sep 2011 07:25:00
Wales defender Danny Collins is in line to leave Stoke City but not until January. QPR failed with a last minute bid for the left back come centre defender in the transfer window. Collins is keen to stay at Stoke until possibly moving to London next year. Collins has told City boss Tony Pulis he would rather fight for his place until January then drop down a division. Collins could sign for Neil Warnocks' side for around £1.2 million.(2)(7)Hes not in stokes 25 man squad, so how can he fight for his place? Der plus hes off to pompey according to pulis, as hes good mates with cotterball....He can't fight for his place as he is not in Pulis's 25 man squad - dohStoke and qpr are in the same division so he wouldnt be dropping anywhereHe's Ipswich bound, Pompey can have Leadbitter insteadCan't see how Cotter pin has any decent contacts at Stoke after walking out a few years ago and going to Sunderland I think. He had a good opportunity at Stoke and blew it. Look how the paths have gone since

Stoke midfielder Danny Pugh will turn down Leeds United in order to pen a loan deal with Oldham. Pugh is keen on working for Paul Dickov after knowing him since he was a little boy. Pugh could sign for Oldham for three months then it could be extended to the end of the season later in the year.(5)(14)Never heard so much rubbish! what they paying him with chocolate buttons!Yes because over Championship football and 20,000+ fans every week, its every footballers dream to play for Oldham :o) PEZNice to see the leeds living in the past boys
back again he may prefer playing for
oldham thinking they may swap places with you at the end of the season but generous
ken may offer rolos and sway the dealHa ha ha...never seen it lolIt's not living in the past it's just the fact that Leeds are a bigger club and better than Oldham will ever be.

We will sign Danny Pugh :) MOT MOT MOT

Matthew Bates could be in line for a surprise move further South from Middlesbrough to Millwall.

08 Sep 2011 07:16:32
Aston Villa are very keen on signing Craig Dawson from rivlas West Brom in January. Alex McLeish was impressed with how the former Rochdale defender played for the England under 21's on Monday night and could bid something around £3 million for the 21 year old.(6)(10)3 million would probably buy you his right foot!3m would buy WBA a player .. without loaning one.
Clark & Dawson would make great replacements for Dunne & Collins.

Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town are battling to sign Stoke City defender Danny Collins on loan(11)(9)Hes joing Southampton..Hes joining Southampton.. - could happen and should get on well with Maynard,Rodriguez, Owen & Hargreaves and everyone else Southampton signed!Southampton fans seem to think everyone is joining themForget Forest signing anyone, they're all talk and have no money thanks to their so called fans abandoning them, when was the last time they filled the City Ground? Used to be a big club but now firmly smalltime, and living on borrowed time in the Championship.He's in talks with qpr about a pre contract.See the Dirtby clownty fans on here giving it the large one, small town club, beat you lot twice last season......Well that just proves everything doesn't it genius? You beat Derby twice last season and therefore you're not a smalltime club, great logic right there - didn't have much to say about being skint or about not being able to fill your ground though did you?

Big clubs fill their grounds with fans, the fans generate revenue, the revenue raised is reinvested and the club continues to develop. Small clubs flap their gums, don't fill their grounds, and unveil Johnathon Greening as their star signing... oops!Whereas Derbys biggest signing was a Forest reject... Small club with small ambitions

brentford to sign loan ofjeffery schlupp and fiz hall(3)(18)Really when jeff schlupp plays in leicester first teamNot a prayer of Schlupp going anywhere now, he's forced his way into the first team and will partner Beckford whilst Nugent is out. He's scored 4 goals thus far (league cup) and will scare the bejesus out of defences with his speed. He's a combination of Julian Joachim and someone good...Schlupp is to go out on loan to swfc, megson and manderic were trying to get him in a few weeks ago. Sven has said its ok for him to go on loan now.No way will you get Schlupp on loan, Waghorn has been loaned to Hull and Nugent is sidelined so Jeffery is going no where!!!!I think you should hold your breath until the move to SW is complete. Good luckIt's common knowledge now that Sven will partner Jeffrey Schlupp with Jermaine Beckford, Sven has publicly stated that he "see's a huge future for the lad", and with Nugent injured and out of the picture for a month or more Sven knows that his striking options are going to be severely limited with Waggy now out of the picture and no way is he destined to be loaned out so soon, later? well maybe but just not now!


07 Sep 2011 13:37:40
QPR to give a trial to Safee and the Beckham rumour isn't going away either(5)(12)Beckham stated that he does not want to play for any other premier league club other than UTD , and Taggart said he is too old so get over it deluded QPR fans.Didn't say he was joining, just said the rumour won't go away the only reason I would want him at Loftus Road is for the money he brings in through his fan base!! not deluded this is a rumour site for er rumours I thought... didn't say he had put pen to paper, learn to chill out!!No chance bud, the Premier League thing is the reason he wouldn't sign for anyone. We (Leicester) have been linked with him (by Newspapers not fans) a couple of times. I wouldn't want him in a shirt on the pitch, i'd want to boost shirt sales in Asia and to generate big money in time for the FFP rules next season. Won't happen though so who cares!Fair point, but stranger transfers have happened and being a QPR fan for over 30 years nothing would shock me


07 Sep 2011 14:05:35
Luton Town to announce new signings on Friday(7)(11)Like any one cares about a conference side.They are signing some players seen have a kick about in Bury Park. Better than what they already have. No chance what so ever of promotion!It's good to see two completely clueless replies to a thread about my beloved Hatters.If you have no input to this thread don't bother commenting on it.

Just so you know we actually have a very good chance of promotion, once we get some of our injured defenders back and Fleetwood settles in we'll tear the Conference apart

Hernanes is likely to be joining Arsenal from Lazio at the winter window as the real long term Fabregas replacement.(5)(10)I doubt Lazio wud sell unless it was for a massive fee, or Hernanes tried to engineer a move and he seems like a pretty honeest pro, in my eyes. But i wud like to see him test himself in the Prem. So goodluck :DApparently barring a exceptional talent work visa he would have trouble obtaining a visa due to not enough international games


07 Sep 2011 09:57:54
LEON Clarke is set to move out on loan to League One Chesterfield later this week, the Advertiser understands.

Paolo Di Canio only brought the former QPR striker to Town on a two-year deal towards the end of last month.

But after his altercation with the Town boss following the Carling Cup defeat to Southampton, Di Canio said Clarke would never play for the club again.

There was interest in Clarke from clubs in both League Two and One. anyone can say they dont believe this when i've placed the bleedin website on there for people to look at the article, is beyond me....some people are so funny.....Its now on BBC Sport at it from the outside this looks like an incredibly bad piece of management, on a par with Phil Brown keeping the Hull players on the pitch during half time. I would regard di Canio as too volatile to be a manager and in the long run Swindon would probably be better keeping Clarke and moving out di Canio.

Ian Holloway set to hold press conference at 4pm today to resign from Blackpool FC due to promises not being met by the Chairman Karl Oyson. Oyston has not sanctioned the money agreed to pay for players Holloway wanted off his "hit list" to get Blackpool promoted.

Source Lancashire Radio .(14)(17)I do hope this is a load of bull but i wouldnt be supprised if it happened today or at some pointHolloway is too good for a shyster like Oyston. Sewing bags, sewing bags, sewing bags, O J Oyston. Like father, like son I say.Holloway is a tool, Blackpool got lucky and that's about all that happened. They were found out in the Prem and Holloway used his manament skills to get them relegated immediately. Once he quits the club will slide back into nothingness and Holloway will be lucky to hitch a ride with a Div 1 club. Can't wait to see the back of him, hopefully he'll take maxipads with him.Just phoned the club and they have confirmed there is a press conference at 4pm.
Wonder who the replacement will be .Thanks Olly .Well its now 1638 and no news...some how think this might have been a false story..........i would have thought it would have been breaking news on BBC Sport......however...nothing as yet....Its now 1725 and nothing.....

I think people should stop telling silly stories.............Holloway isnt going is he....Mmmmm?? Still no press conference! I wonder if the original post came from the other end of the M55? lmao, you couldnt be further from the truth if you tried.
