Crawley have made a bid for Southampton's unwanted striker Lee Barnard.

Australian international defender Lucas
Neil is on Bristol City's radar. The former
Blackburn, West Ham, Everton and
Galatasary man is a free agent and looking
for a club. Neil Kilkenny is trying to
persuade his fellow counrtyman to join
the club but his wages could be a
stumbling block.

Albert adomah to norwitch in a straight swap for grant holt-

Adomah for holt? i would more than happily accept it, however it is'nt going to happen.

We really do not want Lucas Neill, that would be an awful signing. He's too old, we need to build for the future! As for Adomah for Holt, that would be a great swap aha but definately will not happen! Holt had a great season with Norwich in the Premiership last year, getting rid of their goalscorer for a winger would be a dumb decision - dont see that happening what so ever.

Sinclares more than likley going to man city and hes a left winger! routledge plays prodomently right back or CAM , so adomah would be on the bench for dyer.

Barnsley to wrap up signing of lee Williamson, sonko and marlin harewood this week with Luke Daniels joining on a one month Liam deal

Whats a liam deal

Is a Liam deal where you turn up, do your brother's job badly and get ridiculed for the rest of your career?

Hill said he wasn't interested in Williamson and Harewood yet to train, so he wouldn't be signing him yet

David Button from spurs source Barnsley Star

Whos marlin harewood?

Sonko has been deemed not up to standard and has left the club



12 Aug 2012 21:43:00
Sunderland looking at Defoe to Partner Fletcher

Get them both and the lad from man city. We need goals!

That would have been a dream matchup, but unfortunately it doesn't look good when it comes to Fletcher sealing the move. They are asking 20m, which is absolutely redicolous.



12 Aug 2012 21:41:22
Chelsea already rumoured to be watching gillingham Bradley dack as he has been recommended by friend and former gills defender Ryan Bertrand

Freind they NEVER played together in the youth team they were different age groups



12 Aug 2012 21:35:56

12 Aug 2012 21:23:34
Cardiff to sign experienced prem defender in next few days. heard it here first. will suprise a few clubs. top class signing

Come on give us a clue who it might be!

I have also heard this with inside information :) Cant wait for it to be unveiled

Also michael Owen as I posted 5 days ago watch this space

BLAH...BLAH...BLAH...inside information, inside what, the empty glass that sits at your table in your local boozer.

Why don't u tell us...

Danny s***tu?

I have also heard this from an inside source,

Rubbish Hudson is captain and Ben turner is one The best defenders in the league. We only need squad players for cover this signing would not get in first team. Michael Owen is a non starter I think because we have 5 strikers already. Craig Dawson from west brom on loan would be Realistic

He has signed for millwall

Who give us a clue please

Matthew killgallon?
Martin Kelly for loan?
Michael Owen?
Decent signing do u think

I have also heard this we are to sign a defender in the next week he also wont give me a name, i heard Danny s***tu might be coming to us but now we are to sign another seems blake is goin probably martin kelly from liverpool on loan i heard

It's not Danny s***tu? He went to mills all.

Why don't u tell us, what's the point keeping a secret?

If all is true then yes! decent signings i say!

Danny s***tu signed for millwall

If its the same source who told you about Owen coming, then start using HP sauce its got the same football knowledge as your mate

Shittu signed for millwall

Why don't u bloody tell us?

Danny Gabbidon is completing a free move to City now.

Winston reid young and can do a job at championship level



12 Aug 2012 21:17:32
Just Heard Hibs have made a move for Young Irish CB Daniel Devine he was with Preston last year



12 Aug 2012 20:41:20
Bolton full back Riley is wanted on loan by Middlesbrough and Derby.

Riley in bolton first team plans, there is no chance this will happen.



12 Aug 2012 20:34:27
Swansea hoping to sign Albert Adomah, Tom Ince and Mohammed Abdellaoue before the 31st August deadline.

Williams is a top defender top 4 quality, he's quick, powerful, organised and had the most passes in the premier league maybe not vidic, kompany and terry standard but defo vermaalen, cahill and any other defender u can name.

Alot of rumours about nigel davies a talented c.d.m who plays for local club cimla f.c in wales the 22year old is suppose 2 b keen on sigin a contract after bein overlooked last year by b.rodgers good signing i think had previos offers frm wrexham but wants 2 remain in

Heared this too say this guy play against lonlais last week he look good solid defender but lacks pace but makes up for in determination



12 Aug 2012 20:33:34
QPR to bid 5m for Swansea defender Ashley Williams.

Ha ha 5 million for the best centre half in the premier league? If Liverpool want 25 million for Agger then Williams is worth 30 million.

Can't see this somehow

He is wanted by Newcastle and Tottenham. Fee to be around 10 million. He wants to leave

Best centre half? What are they putting in the water in the Vally's?

Better than Kompany, Vidic, Vermaalen, Terry, Cahill, Jagielka, Agger, Collochini...Need I go on?

I'd still take him at QPR in a flash, but you need to stop overrating players. Next you'll tell us Sinclair is one of the best wingers in the world.

Never in a mill years will we give ash to you for 5mill newcastle ready to bid up to 8 million plus ashley would only leave for a top 5 side wich q.p.r is not think you might struggle this year with so many random signings and stupid spending.. too many big egos on bench sparky seems to get players in areas that doesent need improveing ....mackie cisse campell zamora jonson boothroid and more

Steven Caulker stood out and covered for him no end of times last season, he makes a lot of mistakes, and gives the ball away to cheaply. Tottenham have a ready made replacement for King in Caulker, and this is coming from a Gooner

Don't want him!! If he isn't good enough for spurs, he isn't good enough for us.

Ha worth more than 5m, if we spent much more than that on him I would be disappointed. A good player and someone we need in a position we need strengthening, but there are better players out there for that kind of money(between 5-8m) caulker being one!

Ashley Williams is quality. Google him and you'll see most passes and most blocks by a premiership player is Ashley Williams. Swansea legend. He's Strong, good in the air, quick and will tackle a brick wall. Steve Caulker is going to be amazing but Williams was swanseas stand out defender last season. Hope we can get Caulker back on loan again for another season.

But I do admit he is a good Centre Back but once he is gone aswell.. can't see you higher than 16th

Ash is happy at swans, always has been. But so were Brendan and Joe, if the opportunity to play for a big club is there, dont expect to see Ash turn it down, he is better than the whole of QPR's defence, just a shame they're not the kind of big club he'd consider!

5th comment down: Forgot how you manage Swansea and that you decide who goes where and how much they go for. Not a QPR fan but they have bought well! I am a Man Utd Fan and Ji Sung is better than most of your players, Hoilett is and will be amazing, and fabio, cisse, will perform well and they will fit in well. With the added level head experience of Johnson and Nelsen so don't say 'they have not bought well' as you clearly no nothing about football. I'm sure they will finish above Swansea who has just sold there best player Allen, and soon to be snclair aswell and now have a not so good manager.. Good Luck in your relegation battle next year, as the team coming up look stronger than you.

Can't remember Williams making any mistakes , watch Swansea home and away missing just the bolton game, sorry gooner don't think you've really watched this lad

Ash played around 160 games in a row for us he makes the highest number of passes every year in whatever league he plays in so we would want around 10 i reckon maybe 8 plus add ons

The whole point of bringing those players in in areas that "dont need strengthening" is to bring premier experience, on and off the not to necessarily strengthen the squad. Unfortunately with no manager and no premier league experienced players (along with flogging your best ones) im afraid it is Swansea who will struggle this year

Own goals misplaced passes, he is always prone to lapses and mistakes Newcastle game he was awful and looking to blame everyone but himself. Saw about 15 games last year and he was woeful particularly after Christmas, lucky you had Caulker. Take the money,

QPR will not sign williams. They are linked with Kurt zouma, 17 year old cb, for 7.5 million and Mbia from marsielle is a possibility as C samba seems unlikely to happen in this transfer window. If zouma joins we will loan him back to st etiene. Mbia deal will be around 10 million if it happens. Good luck on saturday swansea you are going to need it.

Should be good game--qpr might play some football this year now that warnock has gone-you were playing rugby league last year,beating teams up

Williams is no better than Ferdinand and we need better than both in order to move forward

We were much more effective than swansea towards end of season though when we came into form. Lovely passing but go no where and it will be tough this year for you fella's. We will be more direct with quality attacking players

You just don't get it swans fans warnock has shown the way to deal with a team who keep the ball in area's that don't hurt you. Think a lot of clubs will become more physical with you this year but i think you'll deal with it ok

I think the 5 nil tuning we gave QPR today shows that 1. we are good enough to stay in the premier league. 2 that Williams is alot better than the current QPR centre defenders and finally the person that said the teams coming up are stronger than us. i seem to remember that last year you all said the same and look what we did



12 Aug 2012 20:29:47
Swansea in talks with Jermain Defoe! 10m bid thought to have been made!



12 Aug 2012 20:03:47
I have it on very good authority Ozzy Alonso of the Sounders is very close to completing a deal to join EPL side Norwich City who are also very interested in signing Fredy Montero also of the Sounders

Utter cobblers i mine load of old fulham.....



12 Aug 2012 19:53:21
Man city want to sign 3 more players after rodwell signs......there after agger...ganso and benzema



12 Aug 2012 19:38:34
David Healy should be. Plymouth Argyle player in play in the first league game according to his agent

By Thursday

Hasn't signed yet and it's thursday

Preston are considering offering him a contract (sky sports news)

Steve simionson has signed for preston on a 1 year deal after being released by sheffield utd at the end of the season.



12 Aug 2012 19:32:59
Blackburn have made a £2m bid for Peterborough striker Paul Taylor



12 Aug 2012 19:06:30
preston north end on the verge of signing robert earnshaw on a 2 year deal with jamie proctor and mayor going the other way and ian hume heading back sheffield to join doncaster for 600k

Absolute garbage.

We dont have 600k

Earnshaw to sign for wednesday

Earnshaw to north end really total dross
we already have enough strikers all prolific 3 folas bertween them last season

Sheffield Wednesday seems to be the place old Preston forwards go to fade away into obscurity !

Hume not coming and Robert earns haw is no way going there!



12 Aug 2012 18:47:24
Liverpool forward Nathan Eccleston is having medical with Brighton.

Sorry but no he isn't. Available on a free - Rochdale on loan last year was possibly his level currently. Perhaps palace could sign him and pretend they poached him away from Brighton?

Loaned to Rochdale last year and Charlton, 2 games for Liverpool , 5'10" ........ Does this really sound like imposing target man with top level experience? No, he may make development squad. Serious doubts!

No thanks......not exactly a target man!

He has agreed terms and is going to be used not as a target man but attaking midfielder.



12 Aug 2012 18:46:12
Brighton are NOT signing Bobby Zamora. The player they are signing which everyone thinks is Zamora is actually Liverpool striker Nathan Eccleston on loan with option to buy.

Why woul Poyet sign him he isn't a proven striker in any league and we need a proven striker

First sentence correct. Downhill thereafter

No evidence, completely unreliable.



12 Aug 2012 18:36:02
Swansea City are being linked with Zenit St Petersberg striker Kerzachov excuse the spelling.

No, no we're not.



12 Aug 2012 18:02:50
Fc twente star Douglas Texeria on his way to Saints
..The Sun!

Can't see him joining Saints especially with Newcastle after him. He wants European football which the Mags can offer

Mate Nathen Clyne opted for Saints instead of Newcastle he aslo had Man Utd Intrested in him... Nuff sed



12 Aug 2012 18:01:19
CB to sign for Southampton fc in the next 24 hours. Report from SSN

Any more info?...

Dann from Blackburn

Sounds good :D hope its dann

My god weve heard this before, every day for the last 2 weeks, will be STUNNED if we actually sign someone

Douglas Texeira from FC Twente

Hope it isn't Dann. Wolves want 6.5 million & I think that's way too much for him. Hope it's either Kana-Biyik, Douglas or Stefan De Vrij.

That's a bit cheeky of Wolves isn't it, considering he doesn't play for them.

Dann's at Blackburn... His price tag is crazy we shouldn't bother. Their are a lot of options I just hope we get a top quality defender at a good price. I'd imagine the likelihood being it's an Olympic player cause they Olympics is officially done and it'd make sense for a player to stay on to sign on afterwards.

Wolves want 6.5m for a player that doesnt even play for them lol

Wolves'd be delighted to get 6.5m for Dann I'd think, especially as he plays for Blackburn...

Wolves want 6.5 Mil.........Epic fail

Well this didn't happen. Can't say I'm surprised.



12 Aug 2012 17:54:01
Scott Allan to re-join Portsmouth on a season long loan following this weeks takeover is finalised

That would be great, however unlikely



12 Aug 2012 17:53:04
Bristol City
Swansea will make a formal bid for Adomah this week after weeks of discussions between the 2 clubs. The bid will be £2.5 million, payable over 24 months, with another £500,000 depending on appearances and a similar figure relating to Swanseas success.

No real surprise: when Bristol sold Maynard for £1.6 million, the deal was payable at £100,000 month.

McInnes said no bids have been made for either Adomah or Bolasie! There is no way Del Boy will sell them he is building for the future. Buying good players and keeping good players. Swansea already have Sinclair, Dyer and Routledge so no need for Adomah.

McInnes has stated he doesn't want to sell them but will do if the price is right as everyone has their pricetag! But 2.5M + 500K in future is not a deal he would do. He would rather wait and hold onto him for at least another season if that was the case as their is no reason to him go at this moment in time. He still has 2 years left on contract. I think Del Boy would sell for 2.75M and a part exchange for a player we need (CB or Striker) but not the deal you have described there, don't see this happening!



12 Aug 2012 17:45:01
Glenn Murray coming back to Brighton according to talksports "moose"

He read it on here

This rumour has run all Summer ..... Strangely he would now be welcomed back. The only hurdle would be a fee.... Why would Brighton pay a fee to Palace of all clubs for a player who walked out for free. Not sure top management at Albion do egg on face .......



12 Aug 2012 17:30:57
Steven Fletcher will have his Sunderland medical on Monday

Nailed on, then defoe in swap with unfortunately SESS going other way,would have liked all at SOL

Mackem fans dont want him,well not at 12million and Connor Whickham on loan

Actually it is 14 million , suckers!

No medical today. Trained all day at wolves!



12 Aug 2012 17:23:58
Northampton's Akinfenwa to Southend for 55k and Barry Corr on a 6 month loan as part of the deal, Gunnar Nilsen(GK, Free deal) and Daryl Atkins, 21 years old (striker,20k) also expected to join this Southend week.

The akinfenwa one's funny, Seeing as northampton rejected 110k of us (crawley) for him! Nice try

Total nonsense.

We didnt keep Corr after a years injury to loan him out.

All of this is b*******, crawley did not have an 110k bid rejected, barry corr will not be leaving on loan right after signign a new contract, akinfenwa will not be joining us we can't afford him and we aren't going to start recruting from wembley fc.

Barry corr was ing prone at SWINDON but nice lad if you can keep him fit good addition

Crawley did have a six figure bid rejected in March. That is a stated fact from the Cobblers Chairman.



12 Aug 2012 17:23:46
Derby have agreed a 1.1 mil deal with Wigan for sammon

Derby fan-We actually do have some money but Numerous occassions nigel clough has stated that he is working to a budget and always has an eye for a young gem.Roppe riski apparently massively impressed.

You obviously did not watch the Chesterfield game then. Riski was next to hopeless

How did Hopeless perform??



12 Aug 2012 17:20:59
huddersfield to sign james vaughan for
1.25m. birmingham were also
interested but wont meet norwichs
asking price. watch this space!

For won't read can't meet Norwich value. The blues have no money and in huge debt.

Hudds wont sign him will sign simon church from reading .....

Simon Curch a done deal on season long loan. {Ed044's Note - have not heard anything
just rumours

We shouldnt sell vaughn because he's are only striker scoring goals!

Birmingham city are not in huge debt BIHL are in debt and they have nout to do with birmingham atm birmingham cant go into administration as HSBC have control of some bihl shares. birminghams only debt is a 10 mil debt from last year due to relegation the year before .. so compared to the hundreds of million pound debts the big prem clubs have, birmingham are in a good position. no one question my source as my source is high in the birmingham board. thank you very much

Lets see how much in debt you are when the mighty Lee Clark's finished with you!

Is this supposed to mean Clark will put them in debt? Made Town a hell of a profit. Pilks, pelts, good cup runs need i say more? *sigh* ...

Yes but you wont be saying that when you realisae he is a good talker and thats all

Made Town a hell of a profit? How is it we made a 4millon loss last season? He knew how to spend that's for sure, and what cup runs are you referring to? We had one big pay day from the arsenal game and a few paint pot cup games in front of low turnouts.

Town made 9 million loss this is on the bbc website pilks and pelts were about a 4 mill profit so a 5 mill loss in league 1 good luck birmingham



12 Aug 2012 16:56:22
Gaston Ramirez is having a medical at Tottenham.



12 Aug 2012 16:55:17
Walsall set to sign Jordan Stewart after a successful trial. Dean Smith also set to sign Craig Fagan. Both before Walsalls opening game against Doncaster Rovers.

A decent striker and a good defender



12 Aug 2012 16:38:59
guidetti to aston villa for 9 million

The lads injured

Will not happen u have NO money Ha Ha Ha Ha..............

He had amedical at Sunderland over the weekend but the deal has not been pushed through has the lad has a chest infection and virus.Decision will ne made on Monday afternoon.

That's funny seen as our owner just sold his NFL team worth 1 Billion$ hahaaaa

That being some sort of diss is everything that is wrong with football.

Villa have no money?
Oh no Randy Lerner isn't worth $10 billion or anything like that! !
If RL wants a player , he gets him - simple.

He is going to have a medical at aston villa would be a great signing for the villians

No ambition then

Great player do well for the villa

No ambition? Sorry but is it me or are Aston Villa known for bringing through talent? Milner,Kyle Walker,Barry,Young just to name a few.

You bought half of those

He is going to become a villa player within 72 hours

I think the point was that Villa's recent record of bringing on talent during their time at Villa Park is pretty good. From that point of view I don't see why this would be a bad move for the lad. There are two ex Feyenood players there now too so he'd know familiar faces. Not exactly playing at Manchester City is he? A good next step if you ask me.



12 Aug 2012 16:28:39
Loan Bid for West Ham Striker Freddie

Scott Sinclait going to Man city for 5.5 million plus adam johnson on season long loan where man city pay half his wages



12 Aug 2012 15:45:47
A lot has been made about SAF beingg absent from Utd's friendly in Germany while Arsenal are also there. These two factors are not at all linked!
Fergie was absent as he was making enquiries regarding Toni Kroos.

Also think about it, as of tomorrow both SAF and Wenger will both be in the UK (Manchester/London is a very similar distance as Koln/Hannover). Why bother negotiating in Germany? especially when the "money men" from neither club will be there!



12 Aug 2012 15:42:16
Scunthorpe Utd in 24hrs will sign young midfiielder ashley Richards from swansea

Where did you hear that?

Loan move would be plausuible

Yh mate don't comment if u don't no!!

Jazz is a good freind of mine mate ur talking rubbish



12 Aug 2012 15:07:28
SC Olhanense of portugal have had a bid accepted for swansea's third choice keeper jose moreira. 1m is thought to be accepted

Moreira got released months ago

Morelike a quid

He's was released.....

That is funny he is a free agent

Moreira was released by Swansea about a month or so ago!

He left on a free earlier in the summer......

He's been released so don't think so mate



12 Aug 2012 15:02:27
Thomas Hertaux (Udinese)year long loan and Tommy Smith to be the remaining two signings before the start of the Championship season.

I heard that today at the open day



12 Aug 2012 14:59:03
any news for birmingham city signing or selling any players?

Believe Chris Burke is in talks with a return to Cardiff

Chris Burke to Cardiff city 2m

Butland going to SFC

All these have no substance to then whatsoever, no player is close to the exit and we are not buying anyone else



12 Aug 2012 14:45:17
It is believed that Landon Donovan and Adam Johnson will be on their way to Everton with Jack Rodwell going the other way.

What are they going to do cut him in half and send part to LA and part to Manchester?? {Ed044's Note - no i think he'll just move to england cos when you buy someone you cant still play for selling club!!!!

The point being Rodwell can't move to 2 clubs but hey ho!

Man city this year, then someone else next year



12 Aug 2012 14:29:20
Swansea City are after two Colombians who are Fredy Montero and Dayro Moreno.

Get off fifa 12 ultimate team

Ha ! Replaced James Rodriguez with Fredy Montero I see , but still just as unbelievable stop listing players in your Colombian squad in FUT on here now please



12 Aug 2012 14:26:12
Wolves looking at signing Hull Midfielder Tom Cairney.

When will people understand that we arent into selling our players

Nearly every Hull fan, would drive him there, to lazy & thinks he is better than what he actually is! Wolves are welcome to him, and to top it off a "fee" that would be brilliant!!

Im a hull fan and every other hull fan i know rate tom. he has a brilliant left peg and is a good prospect for the future.

Im a Hull fan. In Pre season and on saturday he's shown a lot of improvements and looks a better player then last season. Looks like he is now doing more of the ball and also looks improved a bit more on it. City should keep him as i think he can play a part for next season

No way would I ship Cairney anywhere. He's not far away from being a top top player. If (when) we get back to PL, he will come into his own. Was quality in 2nd PL season.

Im a Hull fan this isnt even a real rumour, it isnt even on the wolves forums



12 Aug 2012 12:34:48
Hi eds, I mate of mine works in marketing at the valley, he's very confident that are financial position is about to get a lot better with significant foreign based investment coming in, have you heard anything ? {Ed001's Note - nothing mate, though it would make sense if they did sort out their issues, there is huge potential there.}



12 Aug 2012 13:58:58
Peterborough full back Craig Alcock subject of a 1m bid from west ham as big Sam needs defensive cover

Good full backs go for much more than 1m to a Premier club.



12 Aug 2012 13:57:54
Swansea will make a formal bid for Adomah this week after weeks of discussions between the 2 clubs. The bid will be £2.5 million, payable over 24 months, with another £500,000 depending on appearances and a similar figure relating to Swanseas success.

No real surprise: when Bristol sold Maynard for £1.6 million, the deal was payable at £100,000 month.

What a load of tosh!



12 Aug 2012 13:51:28
sell on clause for cox and Austin,Austin is on way to Blackburn and rumour has it Ritchie to Burney this will please all swindon fans,better thanBournemouth and fee for Ritchie will be a massive one

Don't sound legit at all.

Ritchie is a key member we cant afford to sell him just yet unless an instant replacement is lined up

I don't get what Bournemouth has to do with this rumour?

Yawn zzzzzzzzzzzz yawn

, paul caddis has been stripped of being captain , talk about him falling out with PDC. ? or could he be on his way "" one big player to leave swindon Soon!

Someone is in cuckoo land, blackburn,burnley, swindon and bournemouth should not be to worried.

Gary elphic from brighton 200k great sighning

^^^ Hmm, got his brother Tommy Elphick to sign for afcb as well, doh

Bournemouth really do need to sign a LM or rm with only Pugh and McDermott ( sometimes Macdonald, and daniels
We need someone good at crossing with experience and a bit of pace

Mcquoid and Grabban can play on the wing

How many strikers have bournemouth got now about 7?



12 Aug 2012 13:50:46
Rekik of man city will re join Portsmouth
on a season long loan deal to get first team

A very good player although at 18, a bit young. Would be happier if we could recruit a more experienced central defender.

He would be a good signing with Dumbuya on the right, but that would imply Jon Harley not signing

Hes a midfielder you plum, did you not see him play for us? Can't see him coming tbh he's class and could play champ easy

Rekik's favoured positions are centre half or full back.

He's not a midfielder, he is primarily a left-sided centre-back. Only played left-back out of shear necessity last season for Pompey.

He played left back for PFC when on loan previously, and he plays left back for dutch U17



12 Aug 2012 13:27:21
Coventry will sign up Angelo Balanta on
season long loan move from QPR.

No chance he has been told its make or break for him at QPR this season. Don't be suprised to see him released next summer he's wasted enough chances with his talent he should have cracked it by now

Shame really, always thought he would turn out to be a very good player, got bags of talent, just never quite got the chance to prove it



12 Aug 2012 13:23:18
QPR's goalkeeper Brian Murphy is a target for St Mirren.
seasong loan

St.Mirren have Samson as no.1 and Smith as back-up until January to cover the injury to Adam, they do not need another keeper !



12 Aug 2012 13:20:45
Akos Buzsaky will complete move to Nottingham Forest in next 48hrs

Really? Dont think so

Already agreed terms elsewhere. Wait until tuesday

Where have you heard this??

Why would he choose forest were just by 1 point above city wait and see who he picks im qpr fan he is good player do well at both clubs

Stop going on one seasons results. He will probably sign because we ended up in the play-offs the 2 seasons previously, which Bristol did not do. But then again it is whether he will get games and money - and at both teams he probably will get both.



12 Aug 2012 13:04:42
Bristol rovers to launch a final bid for oxfords James constable. This one is likely to test oxfords resolve. If constable leaves Oxford are thought to be Interested in former Southampton forward David Connelly who is available on a free

DC signed for Preston.

Constable has said he will not leave Oxford United unless a bigger club in a higher league comes in for him. And as stated Connely has gone to PNE. So its not going to happen,Sorry Bristol Rovers

We dont bloody want him :L he scores 10 goals a season we need a pacey 20 goal a season striker

Everybody would like a pacey 20 goal a season striker. Who do you suggest that Rovers could reasonably afford?

Totally agree,unless I'm missing something !

Only 10 goals a season!?!? Looking at Carrol he shouldnt be being sold for less than 70 million then

Van Persie scores 20 a season. Not particularly pacey though. Nah, he probably isn't good enough for the mighty Bristol Rovers



12 Aug 2012 13:03:43
Emile Heskey to be a Wigan Player by Wednesday.


Martinez has ruled out signing him

Won't happen as Martinez has said that he was only training with our youth squad to build fitness and there was no interest in signing him.

I hope not because we do not need him and he is not a very good goalscorer.

No chance, too old



12 Aug 2012 13:02:32
Does anyone actually have any good reliable rumours? I'm starting to get really worried now as the season is only a week away and as you can tell from pre-season we really need to sort out our defence. I just don't think that this new formation we are trying to do suits us, Rodriguez is not a left winger, he's a striker. Lallana has not looked comfortable at all and neither has lambert. The only players I've been impresSed with is ward-prowse, clyne and sharp. Who do you think we will bring in this week or is it to late?



12 Aug 2012 12:57:43
Swansea are hoping to sign Gary Hooper from Celtic for 6m.

You need at least 9 million. Hes great

They have already turned down such an offer, so no chance.

2mil more then maybe, but even then doubt it!

Celtic rejected 8m from Saints, why sell for 6m? Nonsense


If they are hoping then a 8+mill pid will give them some hope. What's with clubs, Celtic already turned down 7mill so ya they will accept 6mill and he is the top scorer on the club and has scored 50+ in two seasons.


I heard swansea were getting ki not hooper they are waiting for the 'big' bpl teams to mess up negotiating

Right can people stop posting that hooper is goin for 6 mil

we turned down 7 in jan

so once again can people stop posting that he is wanted for 5.6 0r 7 mil plz

aint happen thanks :)

Couldnt agree more with above. Sick of these rumours with absolutly no substance. Hooper is extremly happy in glasgow + Peter Lawell or Celtic for that matter wouldnt batter an eye lid to less than 10m! Quality striker we know but wont be leaving Paradise. Hail Hail!

Seamus :)



12 Aug 2012 12:38:16
Heard from a reasonably reliable source that we'll get Andre Wisdom on a months loan before the chesterfield game, the other loan move could be for Lee Barnard who Southampton are offering around on loan or 100k for sale.

Sorry should have been on the Tranmere page !

100K for Barnard? You are having a laugh! Much more than that mate.


This is a lie

Which team is this suppose to be for?

I'm a saints fan and there is more chance him signing for chesterfield than Bournemouth there a bigger club



12 Aug 2012 12:31:27
QPR have reportedly offered Saint Etienne 7.5 million for 17 year old, Kurt Zouma. The defendeer is also had interest shown from other clubs, such as Manchester City, Juventus and possibly Arsenal.

Doubtful but we will see

7.5m for a 17 year old? Football is becoming a joke.

That amount has already been tuned down, so i doubt it

Cool name though, eh? 'Kurt Zouma'... I like it.

Must be a big prospect for the future



12 Aug 2012 12:23:18
Cardiff lead the way in the race for micheal Owen on a play as you go contract suggesting that ruddy gestede will go out on loan for a season to gain expierence. Skysports have made Cardiff 1-4 favorites to sign the injury prone striker since an overnight stay in Cardiff and talks at an advanced stage, stokes style of play is said to be a factor in micheal not heading there. Check out skysports transfer news website its on there

2 strikers potentially bought with a combined age of 70

Dont want him , we have got enough strikers, waste of wages , DONT WANT HIM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No he's going to Reading, guarantee you.

Great player 10years ago...hope he goes stoke or anywhere else.. but not to us.. he is useless.. prefer youth

Makes no odds what ss say, owen says he's not interested in championship football

Owen has said many times that he isn't willing to move down leagues to get games. If he goes to Cardiff it will be for more money than Stoke have offered and it will show (if any more proof is needed) what a money grabbing mercenary he is.

Michael Owen would be great, but why do we need him? Wouldn't his wages be a bit to expensive?

Have seen Michael leaving Cardiff City Stadium this evening ......

Wants to stay in prem an once again with pre madonna footballers money or not enough of is the problem not style of play stoke like all teams play to there strength

Lies, Kerslake lives near me in near Cowbridge and he says only defenders coming in.

He want 60k a week n 3 year deal stoke offering pay as you play 50k a game ,let's cardiff have him he's just after a meal ticket

Good! He and Bellamy are both past it and belong at a second rate club like the redbirds.
Baaardif will never learn until they are back playing in the league of Wales where they should be.

There's always one innit??

Wrong again he's goin everton

Used to play for liverpool
definiteley not going to Everton

Peter Coates has said publicly that the Owen deal is not dead, so I think the failed medical is just a rumour and would imagine we're playing the usual wage demand game at the moment, but the later the window goes the less the player demands as he runs out if interested parties. DL

Whoever just said Bellamy is passed it is possibly the worst football fan ever . Everybody knows Bellamy is a quality player

Michael Owen has rejected a pay-as-you-play contract with Stoke, so doubt he's joining us on that contract.



12 Aug 2012 12:18:46
Manchester City Sign Jack Rodwell.



12 Aug 2012 11:59:40
Birmingham City wonderkid Foday Nabay is set to reject Manchester United approaches & ahead for serious discussions with Manchester City & Aston Villa.

Villa are apparently more appealing due to their approach of moving talent straight through their ranks to their first team.
Nabay will cost as little as £65,000.

Yeah 65,000 a week to join City you mean?

He is 13 years old you person.
He will cost 65,000 in TOTAL!

I think he was being sarcastic.



12 Aug 2012 11:49:48
Ed. Any news about an on loan goalie for barnsley?
As we now need cover.

What about Lukas Lidakevicius

Liverpool always seem to let Péter Gulácsi go out on loan and he was decent for Hull last season - I am by no means ITK but there are some good 'keepers available.

I just hope Hill doesn't do his usual 'look how skint we are trick' and sign Torquay United's fourth choice 'keeper who is also their groundsman or something.

Why not just play Bobby in nets til Steele's fit?

Ed. 'No mate, sorry'...just saving you a bit of typing there Ed, lol!

I've heard Paul rachubka will sign by Wednesday quality keeper

No keeper has agreed to sign for barnsley. were does this tripe come from.



12 Aug 2012 11:32:28
west ham spending is not over as Sam Allardyce continues to re-build his team. West ham are expected to cash in on Carlton COle and sell him to Fulham this week and Sam Baldock is also being released.
They are however close to agreeing deals of Moussa Konate (pending work permit), Yannick Sagbo and Adrien Silva.
Bids have also been made for Jarvis and Douglas

Baldock was the only one scorimg fot us in pre season im not so sure on that desicion i respect bs choice but i would feel he could be that substitute when we need a goal like he was last year

Fulham's training ground is in surry

As much as WHFC think they are a big club and important, clubs like FFC are still well ahead of you at this current time. Cole couldn't cut the championship, why would FFC want him? get a grip and be realistic.

Fulham have been completely frustrated in bringing in a striker (all targets asking unreasonable cost or wages, others might be prepared to pay but thankfully Fulham is sensibly managed) - Jol knows he needs another striker but the form of Petric means the striker will only be cover so he does not want to pay big money. He can play Petric with Rodallega or Ruiz but can he trust Trotta as a back up? Looking for cheap cover and has turned attentions to Ngog at Bolton who would be a snip at 2.5m. Cole's wages have put Fulham off the deal especially as he would be cover only. Expect Fulham to wait until January window to gauge how Rodallega and Petric get on, then decide if they need to spend big money on another striker. This will leave Fulahm light on strike power especially if Petric, Rodallega get injured.

Still expect Dempsey to leave for Liverpool with Adam arriving at Fulham.

Chadli will arrive at Fulham shortly after the Dempsey move.

Jarvis is going to WH and not Fulham who will have Frei, Kacaniklic, Ruiz, Duff, Davies and Chadli in wide areas.

Expect another defender to arrive before the window closes in August.



12 Aug 2012 11:17:46
Hi ed. any sunderland rumours other than the fletcher debacle? Getting worried now,very woried mad max

As a Villa supporter i feel your pain.....MON is always late in the transfer window. He spotted a couple of gems (Ash Young, Milner, Downing - although sh...ite now) but he spent heavily on dross.

Hope you guys dont suffer the same as we did

Rumour is we've put a 20 mil bid in for Milner and Johnson 10 mil each

Neither of which will come. Wont pay the wages

I'd be over the moon but can't see it happening



12 Aug 2012 11:12:32
Zamora currently having medical at Amex. Signing to be confirmed tomorrow. Source: My Dad works in sercurity there and is watch it.

Unfortunately medicals aren't carried out at the Amex!

How can he be at Amex just got back from visiting neighbours of his at his home in Ide Hill near Sevenoaks - and he's been there all morning!!!!!!

Clearly bollox where are Brighton going to find 5 million ?? And would they spend that on someone his age oh yeah and may I mention wages!!

Young man IF your dad who works as security for B&HAFC told you this then one- he needs to reconsider his job and second- should know not to trust his son!

The stadium security is only a small team, if the club see this it will be obvious who he is and questions will be asked!

By the way there is NO truth in this rumour




12 Aug 2012 11:09:16
Barnsley FC Ins:
Brian Howard Unattached
Daniel Bogdanovic Unattached
Adam Hammill 400k Wolves
Danny Webber Unattached

Forest bid 750K for Hammill and it was knocked back. Don't think you will get him for that.

Can't see why Keith Hill would bring back three former players who didn't even play under him at the club

Hammill will be rejoining the Reds as he knows Hill can get him back on track

The move for hammill is very doubtful due to high wages. so i can not see this happening.

Personally think that you wont get hammil now kightly has gone and jarvis is on his way out, leaving us with hunt and forde as gorman has gone out on loan



12 Aug 2012 11:03:52
Bristol City on the verge of securing Chris Wood on Season Long Loan after impressing Derek Mcinnes for the final part of last season whilst on loan.
Amougou also looks likely to sign on Two year deal after missing out on Keith and Gerrard respectively.
Baldock will sign on Monday and be unveiled at Bristols first game of the season at home to Gillingham.

Wood's to much like Stead/Taylor good but whats the point rather get another quick striker if we do get Baldock then happy days

I really hope Amougou goes sign a deal with us, he played a huge part in staying up last season. I really hope Baldock is finalised too, would be a great signing. Can't see us signing a striker on loan if we sign Baldock, but you never know, i hope what you've said here is true. Baldock and Amougou are two class signings! Then we can hope we get Buzsaky!

Yes but woods did very well at city scored against forest so would love him back

Wood didnt exactly light up the gate!!!
no thanks .......... but amougou yes please

Yeah, get Wood in and we'll be pretty much the same team we were last season when we almost got relegated. Nice one



12 Aug 2012 10:51:07
Peterborough United are to sign Stevenage winger Luke Freeman in a deal worth £1.5m as a direct replacement for Blackpool bound George Boyd.

Please let this be true we need him

This report over freeman is becoming a waiting game now, the sooner boyd is gone the better just reading in peterborough local paper taylor if fulham target

1.5m for a league 1 player ! To be honest I dont think we (Peterborough ) should buy him for 1.5m when we could get a far better player in the championship for that amount

Take into account the wages of a championship player are higher, thats why

Freeman is not leaving stevenage!

Not happening, Freeman isn't leaving this window, possibly January though

Stevenage swap Freeman for Boyd



12 Aug 2012 10:46:59
Peterborough United midfielder Grant Mccann is a transfer target for newco Rangers.

Matbe a target not a chance of happening though

Mccan aint leaving this year!

He's a rangers fan life long s ye never know



12 Aug 2012 10:46:06
Nottingham Forest have had a £1.5m bid for Peterborough striker Paul Taylor rejected.

Can someone confirm for me that he is a genuine, out and out winger? I thought he played up top?

The bid was accepted by peterborough it was paul who rejected to talks with forest, only move he wants is premiership

Taylor wants prem not bottom half of championship

Paul taylor is NOT a winger, he is a striker

We will see if Forest finish bottom half. Everyone has off-seasons.



12 Aug 2012 10:41:38
Derby are close to signing Conor Sammon after a 1.2m bid was lodged.

Derby will also offer a contract to Roope Riski, a Finnish trialist. This will be the 3rd trialist the Rams have signed after signing Gjokaj and Hoganson.

Saw roope riski at chesterfield looks like hes got potentiel. if we sign connor sammon it wont be for 1.2m max 750k

Derby fan-Roope riski will be playing an indoor friendly with a whole team of trialists in matlock.french and dutch players that johnny metagod has recommended.All 21 and under anyone
seen as good will be offered one year deals and play in the new u21 league and if they impress throughout the season will be promoted to the first team and offered long term deals

Heard this sammon deal but hes in the squad for them today and apparently its someone from the spl that we have offered 900k for

Roope Riski could turn out to be a very good signing.I don't Sammon here.

I thought Derby doesn't have a team in the new U21 league? Not sure, though.

Riski would be a good addition

Well its in todays mirror paper, martinez ready to sell for 1.2 mil and hes allowed to talk to us so this deals been done a while ago, martinez has his targets and hes waiting for nige to pull his dusty wallet out.......sammon in a rams shirt come saturday FACT hes at moor farm now as we speak, 11:15 am 13/8/12



12 Aug 2012 10:29:49
2 transfers for Leeds before the Wolves game at the weekend; Doncaster will complete the signing of Billy Paynter, with the deal around 100k, the sticking point at the moment is Paynter's wages as he's on around 7k a week. Once this goes through, Leeds have agreed a contract with Martin Cranie, a 2 year deal. Also El-Hadji Diouf is currently playing for the club for free until Leeds can get more player's off the books.

Sounds about right hopefully templeton is one of them

Cranie joining barnsley so this is obviouly not true



12 Aug 2012 10:24:21
When Sinclair leaves Swansea will replace him with thomas ince a bid of either 3m plus dobbie or a bid of 4m is thought to be enough, also thought swansea are set to revive there interest in Marvin emnes, a bid of 3m plus lita is set to be made, also Swansea are set to sign another Blackpool player in the shape of sylvestre( I think that's how you spell it) he is seen as a cheaper replacement for joe Allen, 2m should be enough to sign him, interest in mark Davies has cooled as Bolton want swans to pay over the odds for the midfielder!

Thomas ince is definitely not leaving blackpool this year and sylvestre has been very peripheral for blackpool over the last 2 years playing only a handful of games in the premier league and having short bursts of form last year. i can't see him leaving though as he is still highly rated among the blackpool players and staff and the club don't need to sell

Ince isn't leaving Blackpool this season.

Bolton do not want Swans to pay over the odds for Davies -they want them to go away. Job done (or 10m in the coffers ).Happy either way.

Over the odds for mark davies?? 4 million was an.insult. The correct rate of pay would be at least 10 million. Pay or move on, you've just got 15 million!! or so for a player of similar standard. Swansea are seriously punching above their weight.

I reckon Swansea will eventually land Davies for 6m plus add ons.. Bolton will defo sell (if the price is right) because as a Bolton fan I can honestly say Davies is over-rated shows moments of brilliance and very inconsistent in form will most likely be replaced in the starting XI when Holden is fit and ready. Please pay up so we can invest in a solid DM this would improve the team more than playing M.Davies week in week out. Thanks!

Why are you making out that mark davies aint worth what were asking for when you sold allen to a blind club (liverpool)

How can you say Bolton want 'over the odds' for Davies when youve just got 15 million for Allen

I agree Swansea punching above their weight, they say 4m over the odds for Davies yet sell a player of a similar standard for more than treble that fee.

Sinclair isnt leaving he said he going to be loyal to the club and stay beyond his contract

Guys I'm not saying 4m Is over the odds, I'm saying 6m plus is over the odds for mark Davies! Chill out Jesus!

What a joker these are just your views nothing to do with what the club are gonna do!

For 2 million and Dobbie as well you can have Ludo from blackpool

Mark davies is no where near as good as joe allen who was the 6th best passer in europe last season where was davies joe played in the olympics where was davies bolton would be lcky to get 6m for him let alone trying to bump us for 10m also joe allen is young same as other players liverpool over payed on so there is strcture in the business they just bought crap players, except suarez and joe, bolton just want alot of money cos we all know your not coming back up anytime soon

Davies was too old to be in the olympics as the players had to be under 22



12 Aug 2012 09:45:07
Strong interest from Watford and Ipswich in Aberdeens rob milsom, Aberdeen have lots of midfielders and are willing to listen to offers above700k, they are looking to fund one more signing to boost the forward line and keep the fans coming in!

Not interested in second rate scottish players, had many and with the pozzos taken over bringing in champions league experience abdi, no way would we buy him, let alone for that much. All a scottish midfielder can demand is 300k expect no more from a chamionship club.

Doubt we (Ipswich) would pay upwards of 500,000 for a player now we are following the Financial Fair Play rules.

I dont know why you guys kicked up such a big stink about watford signing del piero and inzaghi even if the played 50% of our games we would have the best strike force in the league del piero was still doing it for juve and inzaghi was for ac. Their knowledge of the game their experience passed on to the younger players in the acadamy would bring nothing but positive vybes to the whole team.

Jewell,do not sign Heskeys,he is no better than what we already have.Waste of good money.!

Christ woods from WBA would be a good buy.

I think the big stink that was kicked up was more because it was such an unlikely rumour more than people not wanting them to join..

I tend to agree with you there sir. I really have a good feeling about watford this year looking at what the pozzo family have done with the other two clubs. One has been promoted and the oter has qualified for champions league football for the second season running cant be bad.



12 Aug 2012 09:03:57
Norwich, desperate to sign a left back have made a bid to loan Armand Traore from QPR who is rumoured to be unhappy after the signing of Fabio.

Fabio's a right back Traore is a left back, although this could be true as qpr are actively looking for a left sided defender

Good grief, he must be absolute garbage if he's worrying about the signing of Fabio !

Fabio is the left back, Rafael is the right back.

Not a chance

Fabio is a lb Rafael is the rb of the twins so could be believable but wages would prob be high and not worth paying for an understudy {Ed001's Note - Fabio can play either side of the defence, he mostly played on the left because he was technically better than his brother.}

Fabio is a left back, Rafael is a right back

We won't be signing QPRs throwaways

As a Norwich fan I really really really hope this isn't true

Fabio is natrually a left back but can play right back, and Fabio is a good young talent. QPR will not loan as we are short of full backs, considering Young is not happy and wants a transfer.

I saw armand traore against Norwich last season and for me he looked very good. This would be a very good signing.

No thanks keep the QPR mercenaries away please. We like our young, ambitious, bags of talent, pacy image :D

(Not the overpaid, useless, primadonna tag)

Traore is a top winger but a poor leftback as for Fabio he is a right footed fullback who is able to play at leftback

Norwich fans you will be lucky to get a player like traore. You will need as much talent as possible because you will be fighting relegation.

It doesnt matter where fabio played at man u. He hasn't played left back for qpr in pre season unless traore isn't there. He has played right back and DM most of the time.



12 Aug 2012 09:02:52
Doncaster have completed the signing of Jamie McCombe from Huddersfield, Dean Saunders confirmed it this morning on the Rovers website. A good addition to the defence I say.

Doncaster can't have signed him from us as we mutually ended his contract, good luck to him if he has gone to Doncaster though

He's poor

As a Town fan I wish Boom Boom all the best a good servant

He'll be good for you, he just wouldn't have been quite good enough at Championship level

Good luck at donny boom boom....
town fan

Good signing for you Donnies, he will be a great addition to your team next season.

Town fan

Thanks god for that scored the odd goal yes but my god he was poor with ball at his feet. Everytime he got Ball all crowd held there breath. Glad he has gone
Hope we sign church from reading. John

Jamie mccombe is awful he played against bury he's awful ! Let the team down wt a waste



12 Aug 2012 08:36:43
Swansea have been at the centre of many of tonight's stories, and they are among a number of Premier League clubs considering a move for Blackpool midfielder Ludovic Sylvestre.

I'd be surprised he couldn't even keep the ball against Morcambe. {Ed003's Note - Shocking performance}

We played much better once grandin and tiago gomes came on though.



12 Aug 2012 08:49:34
Tony Mowbray is after Marc-Antoine Fortune of West Brom.

The two know each other well from their days at the Baggies as Mowbray looks for experience in his frontline. Fortune has one year left on his contract and is competing for limited spaces in the first team with Odemwingie, Rosenberg, Lukaku, Long all ahead of him.

Fortune is happy at the baggies but may become frustrated at a lack of oppurtunites again this season.

Expect this deal to be a late one in August before the window shuts.

Jerome Thomas is reported to be talking to other clubs, he is also in his last year of his contract.


Mate he is injured



12 Aug 2012 08:20:32
Crawley are set to pay Southend 100k for a season long loan deal for Bilel Mohsni with option to buy him for 250k at the end of the season, due to his Rolling contract they wont get him on a free. Monaco and West Ham are also monitoring the situation.

Total garbage

Moshni is not on a rolling contract he has 12 months after the club took an option to extend it.

If he was on a "rolling contract" he could leave when it expired for free.



12 Aug 2012 05:39:35
Swansea City interested in James Rodriguez and Dayro Moreno.

The same James Rodriguez that Man Utd wanted to sign but were priced out of a move as Porto wanted 35m for him
Try better next

Weve got plenty of money to spend and ,players want to come to the TEAM who play the BEST football and we dont have any debt.

Someone plays too much fifa..



12 Aug 2012 03:05:30
Walsall are in talks with former Leicester and Aston Villa striker Darius Vassell

The Saddlers are also expected to sign Jordan Stewart and James Chambers before the Doncaster game, both have been on trial at the Banks's

Hope we sign vassell

Vassell is a tank

Vassell wont sign for us cant afford him

Utter rubbish, is this a rumour site or can anyone just post a lie!

So what makes a rumour? Is it only a rumour if its true?



12 Aug 2012 02:30:41
Matt philips on way to Southampton fc

Rumour is Matt is very keen on the move and wants to leave Blackool.

Southampton made an illegal approach for the player. Phillips may well be on his way out of Blackpool, but Saints look to have damaged the prospect of St Mary's being his destination.

Saints approached the Blackpool chairman, Chief Executive and the manager himself...Phillips agent has also been reported, possibility is the agent approached Saints about the player. Either way this whole illegal approach is not 100% fact and probably nothing will come of it. Phillips does want to leave Blackpool though.


You are making an UNPROVEN ALLEGATION in writing. I should suggest you are more careful. Saints deny this ALLEGATION and indicate they will take appropriate action (see Saints OS). If Saints are correct it could be very costly for certain parties.

I like how everyone is saying about signing jarvis when that clearly isnt happening a slight possibility over phillips but most of these rumours are just complete rubbish

There is no way we've tapped up phillips we don't do business like that it's just not like us I reckon hollaway has spat his dummie out again that bloke had always got something to moan about

If I was Phillips I'd go Swansea would suit him perfectly

Southampton do their business in private behind closed doors. They would never tap up a player. Nigel Adkins has said that they went through to proper channels, speaking to the Blackpool chairman and Ian Holloway so I don't know what all the fuss is about.

Van persie on way to southampton!!!

Van persi to southampton! Genius.. Arsene looking for a deal to take all our youth to the emerites?

Phillips will he courted by Everton who now have the money to get to the front of queue for him. He would be a fool to turn them down, and I think he'll see they're the right move for him (and I'm not an Everton fan)



12 Aug 2012 02:27:57
Walsall will not be signing Darren Carter after deciding to try other clubs ahead of Walsall and has now fallen out of the Saddlers boss Dean Smith's plans after refusing to wait on the former Blues and Albion midfielder to get back to the Saddlers



12 Aug 2012 01:53:04
Marlon Harewood will join Barnsley on trial on monday confirmed by keith hill, hill also has said that they will have to go in to the loan market as alnwick may have a 3 match ban, luke steel is still injured and he doesn't think Lidakevicius is ready to make the step up.

Not happening son he must be 38 if he's a day!

Harewood turned down an offer from Wednesday and will sign this week

Hes 32 and is joining 4 trial



12 Aug 2012 00:51:32
Any Middlesbrough fc news ?

Intersted in ismael miller from forest

Don't want him he is lazy.

Ricardo Fuller in talks



12 Aug 2012 00:46:40
Norwich agree 3.5m fee with Birmingham for Curtis Davies.

Since when ....

Why would norwich sign another centre back after just signing micheal turner and having a number of bids turned down 2 weeks ago for davies

That's new

Hope so we need him

We need another CB after offloading Whitbread and shipping Ayala out of loan to Forest. Do your research next time #3



12 Aug 2012 00:40:14
Nigel adkins admits in a interview that Southampton FC are looking at Blackpool winger Matt Phillips.

Maybe they did the illegal approach?

They have made an illegal approach for him

Sods can do one. tapping up our player, i thought someone like adkins was better than that

Hope they can get him,think he'd be great for us,pace is what we need.

Yes does he also admit to being a cheating lying disgrace to the profession and because he tapped up matty phillips we wont even listen to any offers as after this tapping up incident matty came out and said he doesnt want to move

Typical saints lol and i thought they done then bussiness behind closed doors lol oh they do lol

Blackpool have not named the club that made the alleged illegal approach....only the Daily Fail....oooops i mean Mail, have said it was Southampton.

I think you might find repeating UNPROVEN ALLEGATIONS could become very expensive-especially when you have made them in traceable, written form. Suggest it might be brighter to see what is confirmed as true, first.

^^ did this make sense to anyone?

Nigel was on saints player saying they went through the right channels chairman and ian holliway doesnt know what all the fusss is about

I don't get how it would be an illegal approach? If he was under contract he'd have to ask Blackpool to be able to talk to him. If he wasn't then Blackpool can't do anything about it. How can illegal approaches be made?

I feel so let down.first time a players been taped up and it had to be saints

I think holloway is frustrated by the situation, I doubt the Saints are 'tapping him up' they just made an offer, and expressed an interest. with all the agent talk and all else going on it sounds as if he is resigned to losing Phillips, who i believe will fill the hole at RM very nicely indeed.

Look up the meaning of "slander". I think you will also find it can be viewed as an offence, with damages likely to be awarded!

Other papers such as the blackpool gazette have confirmed it was southampton who made an illegal approach for matt phillips

Come to us Matt,we'd love to have you here.

What we did was perfectly legal, Holloway trying to stir up the media and it worked especially with the Daily Star (awful newspaper)

Anyone of you fancy going on the blackpool gazette it reports that Blackpool have reported Southampton for tapping up Matt phillips I'm sure I'll be fine as traceable as this is :/.

Hasn't been confirmed has it, that we made an illegal approach? Our club usually do there buisness in a proffessional manner.

Southampton made an official approach for Phillips by contacting the Blackpool Chairman, Chief executive and the Manager, that has been confirmed. Nothing will come of this as it didn't happen.......On a personal note what happened to " Innocent until proven guilty"?....Everyones reaction is "Oh it must be true, typical Saints, they must do this all the time"..blah blah blah....Ridiculous


How did they make an illegal move?

I'm sorry but at least say 'alleged' illegal approach until it is proven otherwise you are in trouble. I mean if the case gets dropped or Southampton are found to be innocent in this case then this will get very expensive for the lie factories of various papers. I for one want to see the Daily Mail shut down for all the lies over the years. All it does is attack people for a small increase in profit. Utter madness.

Smaller papers like I think you said the Blackpool gazette often copy new from some of the bigger papers, if a story was only ever in one certain news paper and wasn't copied then there wouldn't be a working news system and smaller papers would be out of business because there only stories would be tiny ones! And the confusing comment further up, I think it means that until there is any proof that this offence was made by Southampton then people shouldn't be writing about it everywhere! Don't be so thick, just cas you read something in a newspaper (especially unreliable ones like daily mail) doesn't mean it's true!

Why do people think that phillips is going

You can have Matt Phillips. I can't see what all the fuss is about tbh..he isn't that good.

Paper talk doesn't mean very much, just wait until the clubs confirm who made the illeagal approach

There is reasonable certainty that Blackpool have reported Southampton. BUT what is totally unkown to ALL supporters at this moment is whether there is any truth behind this.This will obviously now be investigated but until that is done statements are just showing biased opinions, without any evidence.

The blackpool gazette doesnt copy other papers on stories about blackpool fc, they have close ties to the club and usually report blackpool fc news before anyone else.

Also was the post near the top seriously suggesting we could be sued for damages for saying stuff about southampton on a rumours page cos if that is the case he needs his head checking. {Ed003's Note - It would be very hard to take a paper to court for telling the truth,ignore the holier than thou ones}

Seeing as so many people seem to be anti daily mail I really feel obligated to ask, who buys it?

Oyston on the radio yes it is Southampton hope they get everything that's coming to them.

Blackpool gazzete reported it first

Oyston on the radio yes it is Southampton hope they get everything that's coming to them ---------------- What...Matt Phillips?

Nikola zigic set to leave birmingham for mallorca, which should free up funds for norwich striker james vaughan

Noooo not the big man

I thought Mallorca were more bust than Blues. How can they afford 50K per week?

I don't know why vaughan will leave us, he is looking out best striker pre-season. Should easily be starting.

Rubbish Mallorca are in financial trouble so the last thing they would want is zigic

birmingham show interest in young star harry kane on a loan deal


Harry Kane will soon be in Roy Hodgson's England set up! He has already played for the England U 19'S! That is how 'GOOD' HE IS! Sorry BRUM or ANYBODY ELSE!

Birmingham have finished in the transfer market unless a player leaves

Paul Smith spotted at Mem today during game vs. Coventry City.

Baldvinsson leaves 2 weeks after signing due to homesickness, will return to Norway.

Cardiff are set to sign a right back from league 1 (youngster probably), get Jack Robinson on loan from Liverpool and Matt Kilgalon from Sunderland.

Robinson is back up for enrique. i don't think he's going out on loan

Martin Kelly on loan i heard, Michael Owen signing for us on a pay as you play contract but im trying to figure out why, even tho he'd be a great trophy signing i do

Aurelio is back up for Enrique, so loan move for Jack would make sence. Also, if Micheal Owen joins (which he won't) we can afford to pay more wages than Stoke City (which we can't). Owen will probably go to Reading I reckon. {Ed001's Note - Aurelio left ages ago.}

Aurelio ??? some supporters alright

M8 aurelio has left

Not its chris maguire, and martin kelly they are the final pieces of business.

Portsmouth to start negotiations with these 7 players before the start of the season.
James Yeboah, CB, Spurs £0
James Harper, MC, Hull £0
Tom Soares, MC, Stoke £0
Caleb Folan, FW, Birmingham £0
Greg Pearson, FW, Burton £0
Casper Ankergren, GK, Brighton LOAN
Ali Gerba, FW, Montreal Impact £0

Pearsons already signed for grimsby

Ankergen? No, it's Andersen of Reading we're getting as a loan keeper. Pearson has just signed for Grimsby, Harper has dropped to Hungerford for any kind of football & besides we'll be getting Howard, Walker & Djaili for the midfield. Folan would be good, other than that...poorly informed!

Good player shares... its a shame pulls didn't even give him a chance

You'll be going where you deserve to be, out of existence

Don't forget James, Johnson, Campbell, Distain, Heridesson, Diarra, Krancjar, Medes, Crouch, Defoe and Jimmy Dickinson

Disgraceful club. Play your youth team and fight your way back. Any club that let's you have any players without insisting you pay in full up front are persons.

Told by reliable sauce, Brighton have put in a bid for Alan Judge of Notts County, attacking midfielder, called the irish Messi.Good signing if bid exepted.

The poster thats saying pompey is a disgraceful club quesing your a saint, worry about your own club, love how every one has a dig at the club

Called the Irish Messi by who, his agent. And whats that got to do with Pompey.

Reliable sauce? Ha

The report about Notts County's Alan Judge interesting Brighton is in today's People newspaper. I suppose one could say that is 'a reliable source' ! Might just be an agent trying to increase his clent's profile in the market place.

Hey the culprits have left, carefree. Leaving the fans to suffer the insults, lay off

This the same Greg Pearson that Burton released and since signed for Grimsby

Your linked to more players than you have fans

Not quite! with 7200 season tickets sold already

Make that 7202 at least because me just got mine with my mate

7000,wow !! Lol

Do you know any other League one club with 7000+ ST holders??

Sorry 8000 now

Now 8350 apparantly.
