Liverpool will not sign Eto'o as the deal broke off. Barcelona only wanted a player exchange with either Alonso or Sissoko their way but Benitez was not willing to give either. Chelsea and Arsenal have both jumped in on the chance to get Malouda as Lyon was on the brink of letting him go to Liverpool for a nominal fee of 10 million. Eto'o was Benitez's first choice but since the deal broke off, Benitez wants Torres. Tevez, Forlan and Bent are all being used as smokescreens. Benitez scouts have been at Portugal recently. This likely means Simao is on his way but don't forget about the likes of Quaresma.


 Everton to sign Juan Riquelme after the copa libertduries final when he will return to villereal.


 Man United latest:

SAF will be offering Newcastle 5 million + Smith for Michael Owen this week which Newcastle will be accepting to avoid a straight offer near 9 million to release Owen from his contract. Saviola is also joining on a free transfer mid July and Rossi will be given the chance in the first team this season. Huntelaar has shown preference to Juventus so will now not be sought to avoid a bid war. SAF considering a loan to Sunderland for Dong until January initially, this may be season long to see out OGS's last season dependant on his latest injury.

 FACTS: Liverpool will sign the following players, in this order:

F Maoulda £12 million Lyon

M Richards £14 million Man City

A Pato £8 million Internacional

G Dos Santos £5 million Barcelona

D Bentley SWAP–Bellamy Blackburn

D Bent will be signed on a strange deal. It will be on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season if Charlton are not promoted back to the Premiership, in which case he will return to Charlton.

This is along with other players already signed, the two hungarians, the sweedish kids, Adriy Veronin and Lucas and Leto loan returns, who will break into the first team this season, after impressing in cup games. Also expect many young players to be signed for minimal fees.

Leaving will be:

C Bellamy SWAP–Bentley

L Garcia £9 million Valencia

Sissoko £11 million Juventus

Also Many youth team and reserve players will be sent out on loan to agin experience.


 Tal Ben Haim to sign for Newcastle on a free – 100%. Likely this week before his weekend wedding, and then he can celebrate with a honeymoon to Costa Del Whitley Bay.

Bartons deal also to be finalised this week.

Babayaro is also being touted around clubs as Allardyce wants to unmotivated LB out – although Babayaro may be keen to see out the final year of his contract.

The person that said Luque is getting a second chance isspot on, Sam is keen to give him a good chance to show what he can do and isn't keen on letting a player go for next to nothing. I have it on good authority (none of this mothers brothers pals cousin rubbish) that, contrary to belief, Luque was the one of the first into training every day last season.


 I am on holiday in Malta in the same hotel as Kevin Nichols and he is due to sign for Watford on his return to England on Thursday. We are having a French loanee midfielder for a season from them as part of the deal. Nichols wants to move back to his house near Luton and sees them as "the better option"


 Liverpool transfers 2007–08 In: A. Voronin (free from B Leverkusen) L. Leiva (£8 million from Gremio) A. Simon (£500,000 from MTK) K. Nemeth (£500,000 from MTK) A. Kakanaklic (spelling.)

 Liverpool FC to sign Fernando Torres, Simao Sabrosa and Florent Malouda. + MB+


 Gers News

Could people stop believing the nonsense posted about Celtic poaching every Rangers target. McDonald didn't come to Ibrox on deadline day because Motherwell rejected the offer Rangers made – McDonald openly admitted he was gutted about the move not going through. Rangers were not interested in in him after that. The same goes for Riordon last year – Rangers made a deadline day bid which was rejected by Hibs, PLG/ Rangers were not interested in him after that. Rangers were never ever interested in Pressley – the deal to bring in Webster was done long before January. Rangers did want Hartley – but thankfully Celtic got him instead, he has been rank rotten since he moved to Celtic. Rangers wanted Brown – that is a fact – but anyone willing to pay £4.4 million for raw talent that's tempramental and injury prone are mad. Rangers will sign Naismith and Beasley, and a defender from Europe within the next 2 weeks. Naismith has admitted he's a boyhood fan and wants to work along side mccoist and durrant.


 To the crazy Everton fan who said Owen was driven up there must be drinking to much Owen is currently in dubai that's quite a drive for man


 VILLA BOI. sneijder will not sign for Villa he has had talks with his agent and now looks set to stay but if he does move he will go Spurs as he prefers London move rather thsn the midlands and would rather link up with Martin Jol as he is dutch. we have a better chance of siging Nigel De Jong as Hamburg are keen to offload after a rubbish season his suitors are PSV and AZ Alkmaar but Villa seems his likely destination. Reo coker deal may be jeopardised as they want ten mill.


 Just heard some Newcastle rumours that you might be interested in. Looks like Emre is definitely off and the replacement? Danny Murphy. Surprising one but looks like a dead cert. Also expect a bid for Marlon Harewood to replace the outgoing Owen.


 We ALL know that there is only 1 true voice on Forest and that is me Dan the Man. The ONLY person with a very personal relationship with MA. So I can confirm, Lennon, Best, Crowe all in. Cohen and Davies are possibilities as is John Spicer at Burnley. Trust no one but me, Dan the main Man.


 Spurs 2 sign Darren Bent, but they will not sign dyer. they are also in talks about a possible deal 2 buy Malouda from Lyon as Malouda is good frienda with commolli the Spurs scout.


 Sheffield Wednesday will be in the hands of former Everton director Paul Gregg before the end of the Summer. It's a done deal so to speak


 Juan Roman Riquelme has his heart set on a move to the Premiership. his visits to Goodison park, highbury and Old Trafford were enough to wet his appetite and it now seems Everton are set to acquire his services for around 5 million. the player made no secret of his admiration for Everton's fighting spirit which, had it not been for collina's dodgy decision, all but saw them take the tie into extra time.



few I've heard.


Shay Given, Rafa likes him and wants realistic competition for Reina, Rafa values at £4 million, though Sam wants £8 million, or £2 million plus Scott Carson on loan for minimum 2years.

Man United:

United have only £10 million to spend, and want a striker, they may opt for Owen (most likely) however Sir Alex would prefer to get rid of some players ie Richardson, Heinze, Saha and buy Darren Bent.


Not as much money as people like to think, any big signings will depend on Berbatov going, expext Keiron Dyer to turn up for £3 million.


Possible swap with Inter, Shevchenko and Adriano, but this looking unlikely. Chelsea should go for Owen.


As well as Viduka and Barton (pending £300k from City) plus depending on how much Mike Ashley is willing to pump into the club. Sam Allardye will go for Micah Richards and Glen Johnson. Tal Ben–Haim will go through as a free anyway. Possible chance of Zenden coming in. Also Barcelona looking to revamp squad with up to 8 players leaving for England.


Wenger unsure of bringing in all potential buys as not sure if he will be at the club next year.


 Rafa is in talks with David Trezeguet



Saganowski, Kippe, Matty Jarvis, DJ Campbell (loan), Heikkenen.

A rumour for the foxes that are rumbling are Billy Sharp and Lee Bowyer unsure of the truth in these though.


 Michael Owen is stalling on his Newcastle future and could make a move to Martin O'Neill's Aston Villa for a cut–price £9 million.




Forget all this I am Rafa's hamsters cage cleaner etc. what rubbish you people come out with.

Here is the latest: –

Rafa to sign:

Anelka – swap with Cisse

Lennon with Kewell going to the other way to cover Spurs

Simao – deal being done as we speak

(I made it through that without saying Torres, Tevez or Alves .)

LFC for the title next year .


 Arsenal Bulletin

Rumours abound that Henry is off to either Spain or Italy are completely unfounded, it's the usual paper speculation that surrounds the team each summer. This also applies to the reported bid for Arsenal by the Arab consortium of Dubai based business men. Stan Kronke will gain full control within the next few weeks, and David dein will be re–appointed.

This will then open up the negotiations for Wenger to sign for life. Once this happens, the following signings will be made: Philippe Mexes from Roma. Micah Richards from Manchester City. One of the following two, either Stephen Appiah or Yaya Toure. Also one of the following two Ricardo Andrade Quaresma or Joćo Filipe Iria Santos Moutinho, there is also the possibility that Wenger will sign Michael Owen or Klaas Jan Huntelaar from Ajax.

Gunners for Life


 The person who says Rangers can match Celtic in spending power is a fooooool. Celtic posted 17 million profits wheras ranger are still in serious debt. Rangers can only spend about2–3 million. Celtic can spend another 10 million. Sam will make huge changes at SJP. He will look to strengthen the defense with Rozenhal (3.3 million) Young (2.5 million) Baines (4.5 million) BenHaim (free) Gravgaard (1 million) also in midfield he will sign Nolan (5 million) as well as Mavuba (5.5 million). Up front he will get rid of Ameobi and will sign Luke Moore (4 million)

(f. d. )


 After the Carry on with Jamie langfield Aberdeen are looking for a new GK and they will sell Jamie langfield to a championship side Norwich (Paul gallacher) / Sheffield Wednesday/ Scunthorpe/ nott forest and with the money they recieve (if they do not get gallacher) they will use it for kasper schmeichels loan deal


 I am from Manchester, near Manchester Ciity's stadium and I can confirm that Darius Vassell is in talks with Barnsley Fc.


 Liverpool are looking to have signed Fabio Quagliarelli and Alexandre Pato in 2 weeks time. Fees will be 14 million and 12 million respectively. Florent Malouda of Olympique Lyonnais will sign for 11 million at the end of this week. That will be the major spending. The other signings will be cheaper players. Liverpool will offer Bellamy to West Ham if they can get Matthew Upson and around 5 million in exchange. The only other player will be an experienced goalkeeper as Carson will go out on loan. This will total major signings to around 37 million plus around 15 million coming back in sales.


 Arsenal want to bost their strike force with Barca yongster Bojan Krkic 10 million, Carlos Tevez 25 million and Huntlear 14 million.


 SPL NEWS: Hibs are trying to sign Gary Holt and Gavin Rae for some much added experience in their midfield. David Marshall will go on a season long loan and joining him from Celtic will be Cillian Sheridan. Celtic will add Appiah or Lunberg to their midfield and either Naismith or O'Conner up front. Beattie, Miller, Jarosik, Graveson, Balde and Zawraski will leave. Rangers will bring in James Folwer from Kilmarnock, David Clarkson from Motherwell and possibly Jason Scotland if his deal to Swansea is cancelled. Hearts are in for Gavin Rae, Sam Sodje, Kisnorbo and old Teddy Sheringham. (Willie Falconer)




 David Nugent might forget Everton and join Aston Villa


 Miguel heading to chealse without dout


 Saviola to United to end their summer transfer activity.


 My mate has the same Agent as Nigel Reo Coker and has Revealed to him the He will Be Joining Arsenal This summer despite wot we've all heard.

Wudnt mind 2 b honest–had a bad season this year but lets not 4get how good he was before that.

Kroenke and Dein also to be Involved at the Emirates Next Season–FACT.

Lets see.

From the Reliable source–

Original Woolwich Arsenal Gooner.


 Everton to make bid for Gary Mcsheffrey of Birmingham. Bid of around 6 million will be made.



 Tim Cahill&Jermain Defoe, signings for West Ham. Respective clubs to accept bids of 10 million and 12 million.

Only 1 more signing after these 2.



 Aston Villa are planning 10.5 million bid for French star David Trezeguet.



 Giampaolo Pazzini is in Liverpool on Thursday for talks with Rafa Benitez and chief scout Frank McParland. I've been told that Pazzini is a player Rafa has had McParland working on for a few months now, and as soon as this transfer is cleared up, McParland will complete his work at Anfield and leave for Bolton.

Ive been shown a photocopy of the file regarding these talks/ transfer from a lower level scout at Liverpool

Pazzini is flying in to London Gatwick from Florence airport at 9. 00am. He will be picked up and taken to Liverpool by a company called Bon Voyage Executive Travel. He will then have talks and been shown around for a few hours. He will leave again for London Gatwick on the same day for a flight leaving for Florence at 22: 55.

As long as there are no major hick–ups, he will return next week to complete the transfer.

Ive also asked the scout about the Henry and Eto'o stories. His exact words were, "no chance".


 Andrew Cole will agree to take a massive pay cut, to end his career at home town club Nottingham Forest. Cole has stated before that he would like to end his career at the City Ground, but the transfer was somewhat unexpected as Cole has taken a pay cut of £30,000 per week.

Leon Best will also snub Coventry to join Forest from Southampton, while player of the season Grant Holt is on his way out, with Carlisle, Doncaster, Colchester and Charlton thought to be chasing him.

This will lead to a 4 way battle for starting places at Forest next term, with Tyson, Agogo, Cole and Best all fighting it out.

Forest will not, however replace Rune Pederson, instead youngsters Paddy Gamble, Shane Redmond and Dale Roberts will be given the chance to stake there claim for the Number 2 position.


 Gary Mcsheffry is to be subject of a 6 million bid from Everton. Birmingham are to accept so they can purchase Marlon Harewood and/ or Mido. (j#m)


 Liverpool are to make a 9 million bid for Vagner Love (CSKA Moscow). He will be replacing the departing Craig Bellamy to West Ham 8 million. (j#m)


 Newcastle, Reading, Liverpool&West Ham are locked in a battle for Corinthians right back Eduardo Ratinho, a bid of 7 million would be accepted.

Corinthians are also hanging onto Nilmar the young striker. PSV&Ajax are keeping close tabs on the 22 year–old. (j#m)


 For the person he says part of the bougherra 2.5 million fee has gone to Crewe, Wednesday didn't even buy him from them he was only on loan at Crewe the season before he signed at Wednesday, he was actually signed from FC Gueugnon in France. So get your arguements right before posting. Laws does have fincial backing from chairman Dave allen but does not think sharpe is worth 2.5 million price tag. Also there hasn't been two bids for sharpe as Wednesday opened the bidding for sharpe in the first place but it was rejected. I wonder where you get your information from.

At least play–offs for Wednesday next year

up the owls


 Arsene Wenger doesn't wantto buy players from prem, Seira A and La Liga as they are to expensive so Arsenal's sigings will be

Y. Toure 10 million

Craig Gordon 6 million

Huntlear 14 million

Lukas Podolski 15 million

Diego don't know

Ryan Babel 6 million

Malouda 10–12 million

Curtis Davies 5 million plus Connally and Traore on loan

Can't say who's leaving but I think you will probally work that out for your self
