Walsall are interested in former Bournemouth defender Warren Cummings to replace the departed Mat Sadler who left the midlands side to join Crawley

The saddlers have also been linked with Ian Craney (Accrington) and Ashley Hemmings (Wolverhampton)(17)(2)Warren cummings was excellent right back and could have played at higher level. Shame that he never returned to any form after breaking his leg, good persnality to have around the team and hopes he does well at walsall, that is if he gets the move.He is a left back!Your right, slip of tongue warren cummings is left back.

Cardiff city are looking at 3 peterborough players
lee tomlin
paul taylor
george boyd
also joe lewis has signed for the club on a 3 year deal(30)(16)And grant mcCanCardiff cant afford Taylor, Tomlin and Boyd!! They have no cash hence the reason they signed Joe Lewis on a Free!Please take Tomlin, He's fat, Ugly and is an excuse for a footballer believe me.. The other two only have a year on there contracts and would warrent a decent fee.From a ccfc fan - this will not happen not good enough and lack of ambiton if this was to go aheadNo chance on Tomlin, not going anywhere, still progressing young, and still to become a true championship player, so really really cant see Cardiff wanting himCardiff no money PAH! coming from a Posh supporter that's insulting. Where have you been the last two weeks? Cardiff have been re-branded and as a result have had an investment of £1,000,000. With more to come later on next year! We could afford all your players together and still have some left over!!Do u mean £100,000,000£1000000Sure you were meant to put £1m? If so Posh made triple that when we sold Bennett to NorwichI think you need to sit down with your abacus again, One million won't buy you a conversation with these guys.I think he means £100,000,000Taylor is way to good for cardiff would be a downwards move if he went there he has much higher standards, Tomlin is commited to posh and can't really see boyd going there.How is Peterborough to Cardiff City a step down?? As much as I would like that to be true (being a swan), I have to admit going from Peterborough to Cardiff is a step up JACK ARMY!I think you mean Cardiff is to good for taylorCardiff is south of Peterborough, hence "down"

Derby to Sign Shane Ferguson if
they fail with Paul Dixon.Which im told he is now likely to sign(6)(13)Which one's likely to sign? ferguson or dixon?Shane Fergusan? The same guy who's the next big thing up in Newcastle? Same old deluded Derby fan posting rubbish on this page (derby fan)Dixon?
If hes the Next big thing why are you not playing him instead of 3 minutes at the end of some games.He wants to leave if
he dosent get First team Football.How can u say he is the next big thing when he was on loan at Scunthorpe last season who r in league 1 where he performed quite poorly according to a Scunthorpe fan I no. Why would derby want him.


11 Jun 2012 21:22:23
Brighton to sign Gonzola Jara Reyes from WBA on a free transfer next week.(20)(5) 

Woop - wanted MattockMattock went to Sheffield WednesdayReally,.. not a fan of his having seen him play last season. Would have preferred Mattock,.. but thats footy.(gor)Gonzola? Bit cheesey if you ask me! Gonzalo Jara Reyes would be an okay signing thoughReyes is a right back and Mattock a left back. Work it outNot a bad signing for free, but would have liked to sign mattock.Very over zealous responses to the "wanted Mattock" remark. Of course the play on different flanks which is why I would have prefered him. Left back is more crucial to Brighton then right back. Take a pill of the chilled variety!Advantage of Reyes signing for Brighton, if he does, is that as a spanish speaker it makes life easier for Vicente which might encourage the latter to remain at Brighton.Love the logic but Jara Reyes would be replacing Inigo Calderon who has become Vivente's mentor at the club (another reason of course why Inigo will not be leaving Brighton)Reyes more 'versatile' than Mattock perhaps?Either way a really good player to sign on a free transfer, we should try signing michael owen on a free transfer aswell.Owen has already said he wont drop to the championship.

As a Brighton fan you lot on here are embarrasing the hell out of us other fans that are sitting patiently waiting for some signings.

Stop with your pie in the sky links to players and be reallistic.

Next season will be another season of consolidation, nothing more and nothing less!

We wont be signing any superstars or hass beens.

Gus will be looking for up and coming talent that could provide a sell on should we need to, why spend £20/30k a week on wages on players we wont get anything back from!

Wake up and smell the coffee, its going to be another enjoyable yet frustration season for the Seagull fans!I Don't think it will be a season of consolidation, yeah we'll be aiming to stay the relagation zone, but i think gus will be aiming for a playoff spot if not higher.


11 Jun 2012 21:18:21
Ramon nunez passes medical this morning and is to be named as a bradford city player by tomorrow after agreeing a three year deal. fact(8)(24)Cant see this he can cut it at a higher level, played well against us and would be welcome but unlikely. FACTThis could be true Nunez is exactly the type of player PPis looking forPutting 'fact' at the end doesn't make it any more believable.That is totally true. FACT.


11 Jun 2012 20:44:54
R Nunez and T Tawio are to sign for Bradford city tomorrow FACT(10)(36)Must be true, he said FACT, lolWhy would taiwo sign for a rubbish league 2 club who will be fighting relegation again next seasonYou will be eating your words boyo, bradford are on the up!!Nunez will command a fee. Unlikely any Leeds players will move out or in for at least a week due to ongoing negotiations.No way for tawioTaiwo is from Bradford/Leeds and he as just become a dad and all is family live there still and he as said that he wants to move back to be close to his familyTaiwo is joining Crawley.Do you mean Tom Tawio from Carlisle?He is a local lad true.Tawio is going to Doncaster and this is from a Carlisle fanDoncaster does sound a more likely destination, Local to him aswell


11 Jun 2012 20:24:39
Peterborough United have tabled a bid for West Ham striker Freddie Sears.(13)(20) 

Why would Peterbotough table a bid when if they asked WHU they'd probably give him away, the man is on 14K aweek.


11 Jun 2012 20:04:10
Stoke are interested in signing former Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega who is avalible on afree transfer after being released by Wigan. Celtic and Everton are also interested.(32)(13)Stoke aren't interested anymore, him and his agent are messing about and holding out for the biggest contract.Aren't aston villa intrestedStoke have told Rodallega that they won't pay what he's asking. Pleased about that to be fair.They all hold out for more wages then may come back to Stoke later in the window. depends on who, if anyone, offers better deal. So just because aren't interested at the moment doesn't mean they wont sign later. Don't forget Stoke wages structure doesn't allow for mega bucks. Some players in the end forget their dream wages, get real and come back to TP. All the players mentioned in these postings may all have an offer from TP, they just like to hold out for a little more! wouldn't we all.How much would Wigan get for Rodallega because he is a good striker who can score goals. But he is rubbish compared to Moses but he is wigan's Lionel Messi.He has said he wants to go to Spain


11 Jun 2012 19:11:25
Huddersfield Town are set to sign young Bradford striker Nahki Wells after impressing at the bantams last season, possibility of returning to bradford on loan for the season to get more first team football as he is one for the future(7)(34)Not a chance in hell .....although heard syers was talking to them ???Nonsense!Not heard about syers, would fancy Wells, seemed quite goodNot a chance in hell? Why is he not good enough or do you rate him and reckon he would stay in league two rather than play in the championship?Huddersfield would have to offer city a very lucrative fee for Nahki can't see that happeningThat takes Huddersfields spending according to there fans to about £50 mill. You'll go the same way as your Rugby League side, down the pan at this rate!Behave, Bradford are absolutely skint to the point of breaking. 50k would secure him no worries.I heard 100kBradford are not as skint as you think after selling the office block so get your facts right.50k? You having a laugh! City won't sell him for less than 150k he's a bright young talent they wouldn't just give him away.Dont want either, Bradford can keep em both!! Rugby League side down the pan?? Having a poor run at the moment but didn't the bulls get done 54-0 the other day??Given we've not signed anyone and it's all rumours I can't see how our spending is £50mDo you realise who our chairman is? I think he might just be able to find 150k if he valued him that much. In dean we trust!150k!! HAHA. For an average 22 year old who got 10 goals in the big bad world of League 2!? Behave yourselves.

Bradford ARE skint.. They were close to going to the wall before they sold that office block. Rhodes and Lawn would jump at 50-75k for a striker who is after all, a Carlisle reject.We will see super town fan, just enjoy been at your highest level for many many years and concentrate on keepin hold of Jordan, your a one man team!


11 Jun 2012 16:15:35
Derby target Michael Jacobs is no longer a target for Charlton. The Addicks have resigned to signing the midfielder.(22)(5)As he has already signed for derby.This statement doesn't make sense. Are charlton targetting him or notI agree this really doesn't make sense.I think he means they don't want him anymoreCan't see why it doesn't make sense. Charlton and Derby both wanted him, now only Derby do. Hence "Derby target".Surely it should be resigned to not signing the midfielder? It doesn't matter anyway we know what you meant!I think it's the "resigned to signing" part that's confusing everyone


11 Jun 2012 16:11:10
Martin jol is to move for his former hamburg employee Elia from juventus , player is free to leave for a modest fee n jol is confident of beating bigger clubs to his "freinds"signature. Also Chadli due for talks when his holiday ends this week.(15)(19)Not that impressed with Elija - showed nothing against us in the euros and nowt special since - though I've only seen a few games - I guess BMJ knows better


11 Jun 2012 16:07:36
Reading set to bid danish league striking sensation Dame N'Doye from Copenhagen. The fee is believed to be 6 million.(36)(28)Please be true! I doubt if we could sign him for just 6 million as they rejected 7million+ last year for him. He is the best signing we could make who is possible.^^^ Agree.. we need a class striker in for the club, we also require a centre back (hopefully Mariappa) and a left backA right back is more important, Griffin is too slow and Cummings looked suspect at Champtionship level at times so I think he is not ready for the Premiership yet.And a camEverton after himNo your notWould love this to be tureIn terms of a rb, the Chalme rumor is nice, hope it's trueAnyone told you griffin was release last month?Yeah Griffin indeed released but will probably come back as a coach.....Nice guy and knows all the tricks in the book as a defender so hope he does


11 Jun 2012 16:07:06
Darren o'dea has got 2 choices to sign for and will be at either of these two clubs July 1st. Leeds or charlton(3)(36)Well.... he just left Leeds so.....Leeds have already said they don't want him.Or wednesdayHe will be warming the bench at Charlton so..........I don't think he's coming here either.Will not go to Leeds as Warnock let him go at the end of his loan without making an offer for him to come permanently.


11 Jun 2012 15:57:29
Newly appointed Steve Clarke is expecting Peter Odemwingie to leave this summer, with the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Lyon all tracking him.

Therefore he will go after a like for like proven goal scorer, with Huddersfield Town striker Jordan Rhodes the top of his list.

Steve Clarke is willing to table a £5 million pound bid, and throw Mar Antoine Fortune into the deal(5)(68)Peter odemwingie is not wanted by any off these clubs that is his agent saying stuff to get a better contract will end up at a half decent euro club ...@Couldn't see any of the above teams wanting Odemwingie maybe if Clark is going like for like Odemwingie should consider like for like and look to the likes of stoke or maybe Wigan to replace Rodellaiga

Quigz23That won't happen. Powell from Crewe is leaving them for £6m and Rhodes is worth a lot more than him!I am a West Brom fan and I expect Odemwingie to go; but I can't see us throwing Rhodes into the deal as nearly all of our other strikers are young and pacey. I could see us going for Browsek, Klasnic or Aranda.Odemwingie and Mulumbu to leave, possibly Olsson. Albion looking at an NEC defender to replace olsson..Bran something forgot his name! heard a few rumours lately that Albion want Defoe, could be likely as he would get first team football and he would be ideal to replace Odemwingie...much better player IMOThey wouldnt want him hes to old


11 Jun 2012 15:55:47
Barcelona have rejected an offer from Manchester City for winger Pedro, reports that the Premier League champions have put in an improved bid of £18m. Pedro's contract runs out next summer and has rejected his new contract offer due to his English wife feeling homesick(23)(19)Unlikely


11 Jun 2012 15:54:43
anybody know anymore on bjorn sigurson to wolves ed(6)(18)Great signing if you get for £3 million ...@Heard its a done deal and their are just waiting for the kit to be realsed in the new mega store and he will also be their at the same time. mega store should be ope at the end of the mouth/ end of eurosStrange times. Nothing official announced but the company my daughter does admin for have been asked for a quote on 5000 headbands, gold colour!Signing for cardiff this weekHe will not be signing for Cardiff this weekEverton are after himReading are still interested, his family wants him to go there but he wants to go to wolvesEverton cant afford him due to being 30/40mill in debt n reading withdrawn interest


11 Jun 2012 15:49:28
Aston Villa younster Samir Carruthers is being tracked by various clubs, these are:

Charlton Athletic
Derby County
Huddersfield Town

It is believed that Paul Lambert will allow him to go out on loan to get more first team experience(16)(7)He is far too good already.
He could be a gem next year!
Peterborough? do me a favour!Why do ppl mock peterborough? they may not be the biggest club but they are in the championship on merit! credit where it's due pleaseConsidering that Peterborough play an attractive passing style of football it would be a good place for a youngster. But as has already been stated on here several times, loan signings are not going to happen!Charlton will not take long term loans, as it was one of the reasons highlighted that we were religated CP has been told not to do it. Charlton will only do this with a view to signing a player.Would definately have him down at town, looked like a good talent for villa last year and looks a like he has a few goals in him


11 Jun 2012 15:43:36
Huddersfield Town defender Jamie McCombe wants to join his brother John, at Port Vale, it is higly likely that Simon Grayson will let him go on a loan for the seson.(26)(6)


11 Jun 2012 15:39:18
Ádám Hrepka to join Crystal Palace for Pre-Season(16)(4)


11 Jun 2012 15:37:45
Cheltenham Town out-of-contract midfielder Luke Summerfield is in talks with Crystal Palace and Shrewsbury(7)(18)Doubt he'll sign for Shrewsbury given that he turned us down last seasonWe turned him down ^We turned him down actually"We turned him down actually"

Shame he would have improved your team.


11 Jun 2012 15:33:05
Marko Futacs will become Palace third signing of this pre-season on a free transfer. Marko was offered a 12 month extention but on reduced terms. Marko decided not to take this up, thus allowing him to leave for free.(13)(9)The fact he signed a yr extension in Jan still means hes under contract! they offered him reduced terms to get the wage down, hes still ares!Incorrect. He had a 1 year extension clause in his contract which the club activated.Just because Futacs is contracted doesn't mean we can't get him for free. If Pompey want to get him off their wage bill I doubt they'll be too rushed into getting a fee for him. The sooner we get him the better for Portsmouth by the sounds of it. - Palace FanAny Pompey player can leave with 14 days notice as the club breached the terms on there wage deferals.


11 Jun 2012 15:29:31
Jamie Ashdown to sign for The Clarets later in the week.
Out of contract and looking to be first choice at a promotion chasing team. Jamie's brother is the messenger, not me!(10)(10)


11 Jun 2012 15:16:39
Palace have completed their second signing of the season signing Aaron Wilbraham from Norwich on a 2 year deal(22)(10)Great signing... think he will do well. with the right service, he can offer plenty of goals and his electrifying pace is a real threat to any defender- "electrifying pace"

I think we're talking about different people here. Still let's hope he can do well for us. Come on you EAGLES!Sure he's getting on a bit, but his positioning and fine touches make him an excellent player. He will help Palace out for sure. Wish we offered him one more year.I'm a Norwich fan, and he is a good player. He'll do well in the Championship. He seems to win everything in the air and he's a tidy technical player. We all wondered why Lambert had signed him up, but he went and proved us all wrong. I was sad to see him leave in the end.Good player, shame to see him leave us but I think he will do well for Palace.Great professional as well. exemplary in training; instills a sense of a degree of confidence and security in the dressing roomGreat lad give him some backing Palace fans and he will perform !Third actuallyWilbraham is the perfect pro. Will play in goal if it gets him minutes on the pitch. Forget his goal record at Norwich. He's a goal scorer at the right level and an excellent target man. He's like Heskey but stays on his feet and has a good first touch...Why do people like wilbraham so much he doesnt win anything in the air and has only scored twice for norwich which is hopeless.After one season at Palace he'll be worth at least £10million and will be sold to another prem club.


11 Jun 2012 15:05:33
Heard a strong rumour.. Bruce to raid Blunderland for his number 2.. I don't think for a minute O'Neill would join the might Tigers.(11)(2)


11 Jun 2012 15:01:40
Watford have enquired about Simon Church from Reading. some rumours saying that Watford have actually tabled a bid.(15)(12)U can have him. Please take himYou can have him for free, infact well pay you to take him.If you have a tenner he is yours.Not good enoughWill pay the taxi fare for him to go if he likes.People said the same about Shane Long and Kevin Doyle before they came good. Have faith in our club you plastic fans.He had move chances than most don't think he going to be prem class do well in the champ with a different club


11 Jun 2012 14:58:38
Tonight at the Huddersfield home shirt revealing , a new player will be announced at the same time. It is expected to be a big named signing.(3)(25)HUDDS new kit will be revealed at 9.30pm (correct) but as for a new "big name" player being announced, i doubt it as hudds management team only just met up again after their hols. But i hope its true.Where was the big name signing pal? ha i dont understand what makes people decide to tell blatent liesWell,you got that wrong didnt you!


11 Jun 2012 14:46:01
Bristol City competing with Charlton to sign Sam Baldock.(12)(20)Bristol City competing? When have they ever done that?Aahhah ^^ he has already agreed to sign fir charlton just contract and medical leftHe hasn't agreed to sign for Charlton yet. We've shown an interest but West Ham are trying to make us pay more than he's worth.Hope he goes to charlton he s ste


11 Jun 2012 14:38:37

11 Jun 2012 14:25:36
Reading are set to bid £6million for Copenhagen ace Dame N'Doye.

Newcastle and Everton are also keen on the Senegal striker, 27.

But Royals plan to be first in for N'Doye, who has hit 59 goals in 104 games for the Danes.

Madejski boss Brian McDermott faces a battle with Southampton over his £2.75m move for Watford defender Adrian Mariappa.(21)(10)Sounds legit


11 Jun 2012 14:05:02
Craig Westcarr out off Chesterfield and signing for Bradford City and Chesterfield in for Sam Togwell(3)(12)Westcarr tweeted no truth in rumoursAssuming he probably didn't agree terms, rumours are everything was accepted by Chesterfield and bradford just not the playerEven the t & a have posted about it now seems a strange one


11 Jun 2012 14:04:38
Stuart Beavon of Wycombe wanted by Millwall, Burnley and Sheff Utd, bids off between £250,000 - £500,000

Lots of league 1 clubs after Paul Hayes from Charlton including Notts County, Brentford and Sheff United(14)(5)Wycombe also want Paul HayesAnd wednesdayI would imagine some championship clubs would like him too, he's not a bad player.


11 Jun 2012 13:51:16
Free agent Paul green is set to join huddersfield town this week. Green most recently played for derby county and played over 250 games for Doncaster rovers. He is a republic of Ireland international central midfielder.(11)(14)He wont be signing this week as he is with the Ireland squad for EURO 2012Set to join this week yet he's at the euros for 2 weeks? Nice rumour there...Why would he go to Huddersfield?(Derby fan).
He's Going to Birmingham.Dont think so..... said he wants to finish his career at Doncaster! FACTDoncaster fan?

Palace linked with david bently, could sign a loan deal in next few days!(5)(21)His names BENTLEY and Palace aren't interested. too much money for a bigtime charlie


11 Jun 2012 13:18:07
Crystal Palace have shown interest in signing Centre Backs Stephen McManus and Paul McShane.(9)(16)McShane needs to accept a 75% pay cut from his 40k a week wages if Palace are to follow through their interestMcShane was on 20k a week to start with. Now, bearing in mind he's on a free transfer now and he's looking Championship standard at best he has to understand that clubs aren't going to be offering that kind of money. Almost certain to sign.McShane did alright for Palace when on loan last season, so I would not mind him back as we need an experienced centreback to go with Paddy and the loanee Martin..he can also play right back


11 Jun 2012 13:18:00
Barnsley to sign Chris O,Grady this is true the player as even bought a house already in Barnsley.(5)(17)He's been having one built since last year so mean nowtSince last year ? how big is it ,must be some

Stephen Ireland to join Mark Hughes at QPR(25)(19)Yes, him and Barton together - dream midfieldRekon this one will happen can't see given following though.Ireland And Barton, what a combination. But I would like too see Diakite and Faurlin play together.I heard he could be going to MK Dons on loan. Never to QPR


11 Jun 2012 12:39:21
It has been revealed today that mariappa will go to newcastle for 6.5 million.(11)(33)Ha 6.5m good one. Just got that Rodriguez chap went for a high price recently ! But he's 22 scores goals and you pay more for strikers !Why would Newcastle pay 6.5 million for a player they wouldn't pay 2.5 million for in January?Revealed by who? And LOL they could get him for less then half that.6.5! yes please! wont happen though6.5Magic beans??He is off to join the mighty saintsWhy would we buy him for £6.5m he is average and plays for Watford. Plus we could get a class centre back for that£6.5 million when he's going to Reading or Southampton for £2.5million? ....SMB


11 Jun 2012 12:35:10
Barnsley manager Keith Hill has offered trails to Portuguese trio - Andre Marques, Diogo Rosado (Both formerly of Sporting Lisbon) and Bruno Severino (formerly of Vitoria du Setubal).

All three are currently out of contract and will join up with the Barnsley squad on their pre-season training camp in Portugal.

Hill has decided to target the European markets as he feels the transfer fees and wages be asking domestically are total outrageous.(15)(10)His assistant bought a beer off two of them on the AlgarveThe training camp will be in marbella,spain !!
but flicker has been in portugal so their may be some mileage in the posting !!Where did you get this information from? I am only curious as I know for a fact that at least one of the players mentioned there are definately having a trail with Barnsley....


11 Jun 2012 12:23:31
David Bentley has said he would like to join up with mark hughes at qpr and said come and get me please(33)(12)Makes sense just hope it starts as a loan with a fee agreed if it works out. If he can regain the form he had at blackburn he'll be a top signing. If not you get shot and its nothing ventured nothing gained. I still rekon Hughes will pull a couple of suprise signings off he seems to have a good scouting set up in both belgium and france so expect movement in those area'sAs a qpr fan I would love that but he just would'nt fit in there with the hoops + we are close to signing Rob Green


11 Jun 2012 12:11:10
Walsall will now offer Matt Sadlers 2 year contract to free agent Lee Naylor(9)(11)Walsall cannot afford his wages (Fact)

11 Jun 2012 11:56:35
Millwall want Watfords Joe Garner(8)(8)You can have him hes rubbishHave him3 million pounds please. He's clearly as good as Ellington.Omg please tell me this is true, millwall have been linked with every one of our players. I will liturally carry him to you, although i gues you guys did see his only goal this season.Hope the clubs can sort something out. It'll allow Watford to bring in someone who can score more than one goal a seasonI'm amazed that Millwall have lost interest in Deeney!Take himGreat player, would be sad to see him leave...not!He didn't play well last year, but lets not forget what Deeney used to be like before he got a real chance....& Danny Graham the season before his last with us...
He too was hopeless...^ Untrue, he still scored quite a lot of goals. Garner has been quite decent performance wise but just doesn't have the composure to score goals.


11 Jun 2012 11:54:28

Watfords Chris Iwelumo to sign for AFC Bournemouth(12)(19)Noooo we don't want him or need himSaid in a recent interview on the watford website that he is happy at watfordThis will be a very good signing for afc bournemouth and he will do very well to take us to the championship.As much as I believed this before, now they've signed Grabban and McQuoid, I can't see that they'll be signing any more strikers so I think we'll have to hang on to him...As a Watford fan, I'll be happy for him to stay. Had a great end of season for the hornets.He can go if Watford can bring in someone betterYou are the only watford fan in the world who would possiblynot want to get rid of joe garner, he had an awful season no highlights not even his only goal. He's a waste of space and money.Paul Groves has confirmed in todays Bournemouth Echo that he is not interested in IwelumoWhat's this got to do with Joe Garner?Brett pitman has been at dean court afc Bournemouth and Bristol city have agreed a feeChris wont go... Joe does alright but he's no Danny Graham or HH


11 Jun 2012 11:49:22
QPR to make a 3 mill bid for Shay given. would be very good signing(23)(24)Especially after last nights performance
would double up as a great striker with heading skills like that.............He and John o shea were not fully fit
and were carrying small injuries.He was
also not feeling wellafter being sick 2 days beforeHe is a brilliant keeper. Single handedly kept villa up.3m you having a laugh 6m more like£3 mill for a 36 year old way to much no matter how great a player he's been3m bid for a player with 4 years left to run on contract! signed a 5 yr deal and was signed for 3.5m need to up the bid for a start and 2nd wont be going anywhere!

Huddersfield set to sign Sean Morrison from Reading.

Roberto Mancini' sons Andrea and fillippo to join Bournemouth on trial.

Sheffield United Lee Williamson to sign for Barnsley while Kevin MacDonald is interesting Sheffield Wednesday.

Tommy Miller and Steve Howard to sign for Hartlepool.

Carlton chasing Sam Baldock(20)(19)Mancini is wanted at Oldham, Rochdale, Crewe, and TranmereWould be a great loan signing but he will go to a bigger club. time will tell?Howard was on 10K at leicester a week hartlepool can't afford that.Wherever Howard goes next at 36 he won't be on 10k a week and pools assistant manager Micky barron is best friends with HowardCan't see Oldham being interested in Mancini, We had him on loan last year and he played about 10 mins as a sub in one game,


11 Jun 2012 11:42:55
is there any more cardiff city rumours(4)(14)Whitts signs for fulham in the coming weekLooking like beavon will be signing for you.Mankey is waiting to see which players Watford are interested in before making a decision. When Watford show their hand then he will pounce.Signed a new contract recentlyBjorn sigurdsson signing on Friday. Subject to medicalYou wish Whitts would go to Fulham, he doesn't want to leave and we know for a fact his girlfriend (from Barry) definately doesn't want to leave.Move on Watford fans just because we took Malky and Cowie you don't have to throw a strop, I mean it has been a year. There's a reason we could and did take your personel....Cardiff City FC = bigger than Watford FC.Which players have we stolen which watford have been interested in?George boyd seen outside portman road a couple of hours ago, wha you think?Manly seen in disguise following Sean dyche. You are welcome to him as a manager. Overrated, starts the season well then gets found out. Has no idea how to change things if they are going wrong or how to hang on to a two goal lead,
. David kerslake is the brains of the outfit.
Name a stolen player, try Andrew Taylor and Craig conway for starters.Wow overated and got to the playoffs in his first season with a squad he had to build from scratch. Whats isn't watford manager is not overrated mind he kept a poor team (watford) in a league that is to good for them


11 Jun 2012 11:40:53
Despite interest from Bristol Rovers and Rotherham, Jack Midson to resign for AFC Wimbledon.

Aldershot and Yeovil interested in Swindon's Bily Boden.(8)(12)What's that suppose to mean, Rotherham buy there way to promotion like crawley did next season, and dons are better than rovers!
Up the DonsThere is no interest from rotherham anymore so your about 2 week lateIt would depend on how much Town want for Bodin (Notice correct Spelling), I mean I want to keep him and I think his Dad will convince him to stay as an impact player at Town......

In 2-3 years he will be quality so I really want to see him stay :)More than 2 week old about 2 months and rotherham havnt paid a fee for any players yet so were not obviously buying our way to promotionWherever he goes clubs will have to fork out between 50,000- 150,000 because he is under 23 and there will be a sell on clause as he came from the Swindon academy so I doubt any of these clubs can afford himRotherham will buy their way into league one... and then come tumbling back down when they realise you need more money to get out of league one... teams with less money that produce teams that stick together have better chances of survival... - coming from a yeovil fan celebrating 10th season in league one with no money...Although Rotherham haven't spent any money on fees, your wage bill will probably be amongst the highest, added to signing on fees, so it depends on your definition of buying your way to success.

Also, as a Yeovil fan, this will be only our 8th season in league one, not our tenth. It's 10th season in the football league.We have got all our players on bosmans so get your facts right pleaseRotherham have a lot more money than clubs like wimbledon and barnet, it's just Wimbledon are going to use what they have better! Rotherham also have had numerous bids rejected from clubs, ie Wimbledon for midson! It's just no decent player will go to them because they are poor qualityRotherham haven't bought one single player but they can offer better wages to get the better players to play for them, pity that clown Steve Evans is on charge absolute thugSorry two international players, a player from league1 who was in league two team of the year, colchesters player of the year(again from league 1) a defender who has played in the premier league, soon to be a league one midfielder and nobody decent wants to sign?? ye alrightColchester are rubbish... dont be too caught up in their 'player of the year' I tip them to be in a relegation fight this year they were very fortunate last year... free transfers are often the best as they carry less expectation than those with a fee... Rotherham will be a disappointment this year money brings nothing but false hopes to those who cant play the market... Rotherham cant just stamp their name on every tom, dick or harry that had a good season and make it a good team... and even if you get up, you wont stay up league one is a tough place to be for the long term...

Nick Powell to sign for Man Utd and be loaned to Peterborough.(25)(29)The only link here are the Managers. Not a hope that he, or anyone else will come on loan to PoshWhy does everyone think Peterborough cant attract players?? We are Championship and allow players to play decent football and progress. Sorry, forgot Leeds, Forest etc are European champions and that means they can sign anyone!!

Football League journeyman Phil Jevons signs for Hyde United.(9)(8)


11 Jun 2012 11:28:41
possible transfers this season:
arsenal ins: podolski(definite) lewandowski, m'vila
outs:jenkinson(loan) chamakh, van persie if no contract deal
aston villa ins: holt, snodgrass
outs: agbonlahor
chelsea ins: marin, hazard, dzagoev (roman abramovich wants him)
outs: ferreira, kalou, drogba
everton ins: drenthe,
outs: fellaini
fulham ins: el hamadaoui
outs: dempsey, etuhu
liverpool ins: luuk de jong, griezman, m suarez
outs: suarez, kuyt,(9)(58)Some of this is plausible - but the fact that you said everton were signing Drenthe means your poses has lost all credibility (apart from the obvious statements made)Drenthe defenitley wont go to everton he was in trouble a lot with moyes when on loan, doubt the suarez, de jong, griezman, lewandowski or snodgrass rumours are true eitherMan Utd are close to signing robert lewandowski from dortmund for about 16 million already. The poland manager said he will be signing for them after Euro 2012 and man utd have already signed dortmund midfielder shinji kagawa and now are trying to sign baines and modric.sigh where to start...Surely they are not the only transfers going to fulham or i hope not otherwise something is seriously wrong!!You are so far off the mark it is unbelievable!Suarez will not leave Liverpool. Sorry amigoThe only way Drenthe will come back to EFC is if he buys the club


11 Jun 2012 11:26:51
Middlesbrough are set to offload Stephen McManus to Bristol city for a fee around the range of £150,000. Bargin if you ask me.(15)(10)Snap your hand off if trueThat is a huge hit, but with his wages and Mogga not a fan guess something better than nothingHes worth more than thatYes this is true. any more middlesdrough newsCant agree termsBargain at that price but City don't want to pay the wages that he wantsWord last night from connected source (aren't they all) that a compromise deal is close. Never trust connected sources so doubt he'll agree unless close to what he wants, but there's hardly a queue for him is there


11 Jun 2012 11:22:58
Bristol City are looking into a possible Season long loan for Liverpool starlet Jesus Fernandez Saez (Suso).(9)(13)If that happens, it will not impress any fan of Liverpool who is concerned about the future of the club.Is he old enough?


11 Jun 2012 11:15:37
Crawley are closing in on the signing of Doncaster midfielder Brian Stock. The former Bournemouth player headed down to West Sussex for talks with new Reds boss Sean O'Driscoll yesterday. A fee in the region of £200,000 has been agreed.(12)(19)Best Wishes to Stocky, he has been a good servant to Doncaster. He will be the same for Crawley£200k for a 30 year old L1 player? Hope notWhere's all this transfer money coming from?
From paupers 4 years ago, money seems to be from a bottomless pit at Crawley.Are majority of players that come in are free transfers and I think that the fa cup runs and the sales of Barnett and tubbs for a reported combined fee of just under 2 million


11 Jun 2012 11:13:55
Bolton are set to bid 1M for Notts County wide man Alan Judge(2)(22)He would cost abit more that 1mil mate

Notts have been desperately clinging on to him, and have already sounded out a bid nearer 2mil from +lcfc +bhafc +mfcConsidering that Notts County have already turned down a bid of 1M for Judgey i think it will get rejected again !!He may have had a good season but £1 million? That's a lot of money for a League 1 playerMike Edwards has left the clubBolton have four wingers already in Eagles, Lee, Petrov and Wylde.Petrov wont be there next yearPetrov has signed a new contract actually as confirmed by the chairman Phil Gartside not two weeks ago.Petrov said definitely staying at BoltonPetrov has signed a one year extension what's this guy talking aboutPetrov to Rangers! How, lazy journalism at it's best. Petrov has already a signed a 12 month contract extension, so will be very much part of Bolton's plans for the season. Bolton also have first option on Miyaichi, but don't really need him, so the Judge move is deffo not happening.Petrov has just signed a new 1 year deal so i think he willNotts rejected a bid of £1.5m from Leicester for JudgeIf 1mil is steep for a league 1 player, what about leicester paying 1mil for that fleetwood player and man u 4mil for nick powell
I don't think you understand football - it's the player, not the league or club that's valued.


11 Jun 2012 11:11:56
Reading to sigh Lukaku on loan.(14)(35)Not what I heard.He going to stokeNot the kind of player we would want, the boss has made it clear we will sign players that fit in with the team spirit we have in rfc, lukaku after his refusing to touch champions league trophy +problem despite still being young of being kept on the bench and wanting constant 1st team = not a rfc player.His refusal to touch the trophy was nothing to do with petulance. As he didn't play a minute of champions league football he felt he hadn't won it so didn't want to touch it.


11 Jun 2012 11:08:54
Burnley have had a third bid(1.3M) rejected by Derby for Jason Shackell

Derby are holding out for 2M but Burnley will not be paying that much(14)(8)Is this a Derby fan?
Either way you would know we are not selling Jason Shackell whatever the price.
As Nigel has Said in 4 Interviews now is Not about the Money its about whether we could get a Replacement as good as
Jason.He said from what they have seen they can and they are not holding for 2 million derby Value him at 4 Million and
have raised it so high to stop Interested Parties.Not sure Shacks will be happy to be treated as a piece of meat by Clough, sending out the wrong signals.He said if the money is right (roughly 2m) he will sell12 Jun 2012 16:02:31
shackell is saying that derby could sell if we get the right offer, to me its bad management by clough spuring clubs on to buy himThink noises from the north west media are saying Burnley have had a bid accepted by the rams. One step forward, ten back...


11 Jun 2012 11:07:49

Millwall and Brentford talking to Paul hayes(3)(13)


11 Jun 2012 10:58:58
Ruddy and Pilkington interesting Arsenal also Everton.(4)(31)Bearing in mind Everton are skint, I can't see how they could afford either of them. Ruddy certainly wouldn't go back there-he's settled, playing regularly and has had an England call up whilst playing for Norwich.
Pilkington may be a player that moves onto bigger and better things ultimately, but it won't be this Summer.


11 Jun 2012 10:45:45
Millwall have had a 750k bid accepted for Stenage FC pair Lawrie Wilson and Luke Freeman. FACT(5)(22)Freeman is worth a million + on his ownFreeman on his own would cost more than 750k

this is what gary johnson has said on yeovils website in an interview about some transfer rumors.
"Gary then went on to discuss the names mentioned on the rumour mill over the last month, focusing on ex-Glover Nathan Smith, former loan star Ryan Dickson and experienced strikers Jon Parkin and Freddy Eastwood.

He admits to being interested in one of the four but confesses that his side's recent success puts Yeovil out of the picture financially."

this was also said by johnson on glovers player(2)(6)This is old news im afraid...


11 Jun 2012 10:17:24
Huddersfield Town are to announce the signing of David Syers from Bradford City within the next week according to a club source.(4)(15)

van persie to juventus (done deal)(18)(15)If it was a 'done deal' then it would have been announcedDone deal even though they pulled out of the running last week??Doubt he would go to Italy, their league is not what it once was - Spain maybe but not Italy.

11 Jun 2012 09:04:12
Michael Owen will be revealed as a stoke city player this week.(37)(38)Hiring high profile players is probably a way for Pulis to send a message out that Stoke can attract such players. Obviously Owen is way past his best and will not add anything to the Stoke squad.Why do clubs still buy this guy,done nothing since he left liverpool and will add nothing but hype.Don't agree. Stoke did a great job at getting Woodgate fit week in week out and Owen is still one of the best finishers around. If it's a similar pay per play deal as Woodgate then will be a great move.Too good a footballer for stokeCould see him doing well with Crouch and Stoke's wide menOwen would do good at stoke he would work of crouch just like walters but better finishing. We would welcome him to our stadium


11 Jun 2012 08:59:46
According to The Daily Mail Southamptonaree also interested in Mariappa. Is this his agent or the club trying to up the price?(15)(14)Probably the club trying to up the price. Watford need the cash so have accepted Reading's offer of £2 million despite continuous reports saying otherwise. I assume they are trying to start a bidding war.Decent player, right age, international and we are very much in the market for a C Half. May fit...And is he good enough?What is this rubbish about watford need the cash, maybe 5 years ago, we are now in a great financial position, better than most clubs. as for marriappa, he is a very good player, not very tall for a cb but great jumping ability makes up for that, voted watfords player of the season.Great financial position. According to most of the Watford fans you can't even afford 850K on one player. Yeh you need the money.Why would Watford pay £850000 for a player that is not worth half that fee. The trouble with Reading is they want to buy cheap and sell expensiveIt wasn't about the player but the fee. They were saying you can't afford that much regardless of the player. Anyways the Mariappa deal was done a long time ago. He needs to have a medical and that's it. He played for Jamaica on Friday and will be playing tomorrow but should be back soon after that to tie up the deal.

11 Jun 2012 08:51:54
Charlton are close to the signing of Damien Delaney from Ipswich Town for an undisclosed fee.

Also Luke Varney in talks over a return to the Valley.(12)(19)Varney is off to forest once cotterill knows his budget, which is dependent on if they get taken over. This is why he has not signed for anyone else yet, even though there has been offersI would love to see varney come back as he has unfinshed busniess with usYeah. That's not happening until we get 2-3 centre backs in because we are not going to be left with one centre back at the club.
Plus I'm not sure you'd want him.I will drive delaney to youI can see it happening if town line up a few replacement defendersLuke Varney would be perfect for us and as the previous guy said he has unfinished Business,. His non stop, plus his gained a tremendous amount of expereince,. Can make goal can score goals,.good news if true !!Why would Delaney want a relegation battle all seasonExactly so why wouod he stay at Ipswich? ^^Don't get nasty about Charlton. They could do well in the championship next season, just like all of last years promoted teams.I'm not at all sure about Delaney, we have three good centre backs.

Luke Varney however has never set the world alight but is great to watch and I'd love to have him back. Who would you drop to fit him into the team though?"Why would Delaney want a relegation battle all season"

Exactly, why stay at Forest?Forest?Damien delaney cant wait to leave as ipsweich board very unambitious.How do some of these stupid comments get ok'd? Is Ed a budgie or something? {Ed003's Note - I've never been called a budgie before,is that a compliment? }Oh yeah, we're 'unambitious'!? Because us aiming to build a squad for the future and get into the premier league within the next few seasons is 'unambitious'.
If you're going to make up rumours at least make it believable.Definitely not a compliment from our perspective. Although that is harsh to accuse Ed of such foolishness. {Ed003's Note - More a donkey man myself to be honest}Delaney doesnt think Ipswich is unambitious, I speak to him after every game and he would only leave if he wasnt getting regular footballHe might well be leaving next year then...


11 Jun 2012 08:43:31
Norwich City will confirm the transfer of an unspecified player on Wednesday afternoon more on this as I get it(9)(21)If you don't give a name then don't bother posting-they could sign anyone-Wednesday or the days afterwards and you could say that it was you that tipped it, no matter who he was. Anyone can say "a" player, provide a name or don't bother.Ch is off on holiday and will watch tapes of all last seasons games i cant see nobody singing this week.Aaron Wilbraham to PalaceAs a Norwich fan, Chris Hughton might be singing whiles watching those 38 games, but i don't think he will be signing any player soon.

wigan are closing in on giovani dos santos personal terms have been agreed, all thats left is the fee(16)(18)No way either joining swansea or bilbaoThis one has been talked about for some time! Possible, as Martinez has been keen on this player for a couple of seasons.Trust me this is trueSwansea ain't even got a manager


11 Jun 2012 07:57:44
I heard a whisper that Bradford City are set to sign Ramon Nunez from Leeds Today (9)(22)I heard it could be American Grella or Nunez!Good luck to him if this happens, i as a Leeds fan didn't feel he was good enough to play week in week out but feel he would be a great signing for league 1 or 2Its a fact passed medical this morning. plus big time investment to be announced this week also factI think it's Mike Grella signing today, he's ex LeedsNunez isn't an American, he is a Honduran.Grella sounds more likely.
Nunez is too good for league 2. Top of league 1 or lower championship quality.Who said anything about Nunez being from America? I think he was meaning Grella was from the US of A.

As for the right-winger from Leeds, it's more likely to be Lloyd Sam who played under Parkinson at Charlton.


11 Jun 2012 07:47:05
Preston close to signing gillinghams midfielder,jack payne on a two year contract(8)(8)Preston already appear to have a surplus of midfield playersIts not long since he signed a 2year contract. I can't see Preston paying out money for himHope this one is true, great player with a bright future imo"Great player with a bright future"....not if he joins PNE......cant see it happening as he would cost money.....and PNE dont have any.Although I don't believe this rumour to be true I am getting sick of ppl saying PNE have no money to spend! Ridsdale has said that money is available to spend so please get the facts rightWish people on here would stop talking crap about Preston that they don't know. We do have money and Hemmings is going to let some of it be spent during the actual transfer window, the frees coming in are just the out of contract players. Also Payne has more chance of furthering his career at Preston than at Gillingham, I'm a fan of both clubs so I can say with conviction that Gillingham are a League 2 side and Preston are building towards a Championship side.If this was true, whick i know its not as I know JP's family very well it would cost PNE 500K up front + 250k at xmas + 250K in March.

He has a 1m release cause in his contract. He will only look at Championship London Clubs.

Even Celtic would struggle to get out of the Championship.Get a grip you person celtic are premier league standard mid table and in 4 to 6 years they would be chalenging for the titleSone Aluko will be going nowhere near the championship after last year i'm afraid. He's either staying at rangers, or it's BPL or la ligaHa challenging for the title...dont think so mate, Celtic are average about the same as Stoke or West bromCeltic would struggle in the champ due to most other spl steams being league 1 quality

Barnsley news. jacob mellis to replace out going midfielder jacob butterfield.(12)(15)Hill already said last season he wouldn't be looking to sign Mellis, in fact he said he'd watched videos of his loan spell with us and that he only ever played one good game for us so I can't ever see that one happening.Agree with Keith hills comments was not good when on loan with us previously why would we sign him now.Butterfield wasgone in the transfer window before the injury.
Mike Jones will be his replacement.
from the mouth of horsesButterfield is struggling to overcome knee injury in time for start of season and as not received any other contract offers off any club

George Boyd close to agreeing a 2year deal with Palace from Posh for a fee in the region of 400k.(15)(40)Palace dont play with wingers anymore. A massive Palace fan but it aint going to happenIf we can bring in Boyd, with Zaha on the other side and Scannell, Parr and Ambrose all also able to play on the wings I'm sure we'd open up the wings once more. If Tshabalala signs too we'll be on fire. Come on you EAGLES!Not gonna happen not a fan of either team but he won't leave peterboro



11 Jun 2012 00:50:57
Bristol City have shown interest in Crystal Palace's Kagisho Dikgacoi. The two clubs have agreed a fee in the region of£200,000 for the South African.(12)(22)KG is fat and lazy, i'll accept £1 for him let alone £200k + we have Jonny Williams to replace himThis is laughable
Why would he go to Bristol for a smaller team and palace let him go for 25% of the price we actually paid^^^^ Haha
Personally I'd pay Bristol City out of my own pocket for them to take KG!I will drive him down to Bristol footballer my asePosh want over 1m for Boyd wont happen at 400kHow's about a swap, Marvin Elliot for KG?No Id rather keep Marvin Elliot , you can have niel killkenny ;)Martin Elliot is valued at 3 million by bcfc so yeah a stright swap for a lump of wood yeah il take typical thick palace fans as always


11 Jun 2012 00:48:57
George Thorne set to rejoin Portsmouth on a season long loan.(11)(17)Portamouth can't sign anyone until the CVA has been accepted, which wont happenWhich should be soon...It will take a couple of weeks yet but the CVA will be signed as even at a few pence in the pound, it's more than creditors will get via liquidation. After the CVA is in place could easily see Thorne return on loan.I know thorne impressed last season in the CHAMP so why would he go back to league 1?


11 Jun 2012 00:48:15

Also Kanu can only be released if you pay up his contract something you dont have the money to doBrann dont have that kind of money! 400 000 maybe ...Futacs will be a Crystal Palace player by the end of the week.

After missing out on Brentford midfielder Sam Saunders , Oxford will sign free agent Lloyd Sam.(5)(17)After missing out on Sam Saunders? Do me a favour pal you were never in the running as he's just signed a new contract and was never up forsale.Lol it gets betterHe isn't joining Oxford - As I am a youth scout for the club he has pretty much agreed to join. Might wanna re-think your sources next time.

Coventry, Watford, Millwall, Derby, Leicester and Burnley all chasing Norwich's Aaron Wilbraham.(8)(9)Signing for PalaceYou sure about that...he's a free agentWill score 30+ goals a seasonGood. would hate to sign him.They'll never catch him - he's too fastWho on earth thinks Wilbraham will score 30+ a season? He certainly isn't a premier league striker in fact I reckon he'd struggle for goals in the blue square premier league!I dont think enough people respect the role wilbraham does in the club and how hard he works every match.Lol, bit harsh he's been very good at norwich although id say about 10 goals if your lucky. As a watford fan i wouldn't mind him but apparently crystal palace have offered him a contract.Coventrys transfer embargo will not be lifted until the forseeable future. no deal for half share of ground. sisu considering options. it doesnt look good.He can offer a high work ethic and enthusiasm of the great gameWatford get him nowGreat at holding the ball up, good vision, occasional goals, great attitude, brilliant squad player, no one at Norwich has a bad word to say about Wilbraham, been good for us, not pivotal but important, a wise signing by Palace, glad to see him get picked up, surplus to requirements at NCFC now. Congrats to Palace. Are you signing Chris Martin too?Done deal apparently according to Richard Crawley on Twitter - CPFC it is

In: Barnsley in contract talks with Sheffield Uniteds Lee Williamson, also in talks with Birmingham City over Kieth Fahey (wanting fresh challenge) however doubtful to sign. Almost completed the signing of AFC Bournemouth midfeilder Harry Arter.

Out: Butterfield to Bolton on Free,
Clark on loan to MK Dons(6)(20)Barnsley want arter? HA, take him pleaseOh Gooood....someones signing Arter (Cherries fan). Try to keep him on the pitch!!Butterfield is going nowhere on a free he his
under 23 so fee if not agreed between clubs will go to a tribunalNot sure why a championship club would want arter, he's not good enough for league 2Butterfield not on a free will have fee to pay by tribunal cause of his age.Yeah but technically it is a free, but with compensation, i think thats what he meant!Harry arter for barnsley, surely not that desperate as he is not good enough to play in div 1. His passing and distribution is poor but ok for the bench or div 2 !Dons Manager, Karl Robinson, recently told that he will not loan unless they are '5 Star Quality' after the recalls of James Tavernier and Adam Smith (Not Alan). I doubt Clark is '5 Star Quality'Keith Fahey has been at the club over the last two days, contract talks still on going. I have heard rumours about Arter, apparently kieth Hill is a big fan. Not sure about Clark thoughIf arter goes to barsnley there will be a que of people at dean court to drive him there take him shocking and when not shocking be sure he doesnt get sent off good ridanceWe dont want him do we?

That's a fact !!Swindon are set to place another bid for oxford united striker james constable, in the region of 400kA rumour that shrewsbury winger jon taylor is in talks with swindon town over a 3 year deal and is set to sign over the next few days, possibly a swap for matt ritchie?Ritchie is staying for ay least another season. As for Constable, Di Canio has made it plain that he lost his chance...the fact that his own supporters threatened him etc put him off even talking to be honest the fans that did that are disgusting but ultimately did us a favour.

Steve Clarke hopes to make Nathaniel Clyne his first signing as West Brom manager. WBA are willing to meet Palace's £3m fee to avoid a tribunal.(18)(30)Clyne is going to Man U after Euro 2012. Fee will be set by a trib with Man U beliving the fee will be as little as 1.5 millionClyne will be at man utd soon. already had disscusions.As a Palace fan I'd rather see Clyne go to WBA than United. Will get first-team football and be part of a growing club with passionate fans. Rather than a club full of arm-chair glory fans..Rather see him stay at Palace but agree a move to albion would be better for him

He recently signed a new contract at stoke and wants to break into the first team there.Not a chance, he recently signed a new long term deal! The only way he'll leave the club is on loan! Do your homework!He's just signed a 2 year deal with stoke... try again sunshine.Is it true thoughPeter coates is ready to give TP 20 million plus any futher cash generated from player sales. expect a couple of tasty deals.They might get him on loan ..remmber b4 he went walsall he was struggling make the reservers thats why they sent him out as a make or break ..and b4 stoke commit to a bigger contract they will send him out agian this year to see how he gets onCould well go on loan as Stoke hinted he could join a Championship club. He certainly is a talent. Far better prospect than Marshall

It is believed that Palace will make a last minute attempt to try and scupper Crawley's deal for Torquay's 22 year old midfielder Eunan O'Kane. It is believed that O'Kane is seen to have a bright future and will be loaned back out to Torquay should Palace sign him. The amount required to activate O'Kane's release clause is £175,000(16)(10)Can Palace afford £175,000?O'kane to the new den!He's ste, ane't gonna happenTo the muppet who said Palce can't afford 175k, our owners are worth a combined 1 billion and will spend as much as necessary on the right player.

Jay Rodriguez has signed for Southampton. There maybe at least one player involved in a swap as part of the £7million deal.(33)(18)Its a cash deal.No other players and i think closer to 6milThe deal is done, none of our players have gone, why are people still saying Burnley are getting a player in the deal?Its a cash only deal but it is £7mThe deal is £7m cash, no players coming the other way.... FACT .... good luck JayIt was 6 millionI can 100% say that the amount is less than £6m up front. It could rise to £7m but is closer to £5.6 initial payment.Its 7m but has a million worth of add ons."I can 100% say that the amount is less than £6m up front. It could rise to £7m but is closer to £5.6 initial payment."

i can 100% say you made that up. {Ed001's Note - I would suggest checking, they tend to be very accurate with prices. They list the deal as costing 7.6m (roughly).}Its not 7 million! But it can rise to they depending on matches, goals, england call up etcSo will be 7 million then..... Jay welcome. Next target please.SkySports reporting the price was 6 million. I believe them more than I believe . {Ed001's Note - then you are a fool, as use real figures from FIFA, UEFA and the FAs, while Sly make up their own figures. Run along now, you probably need to place a bet on their latest made up nonsense to get the likes of you gullible ones betting on slybet.}Different to ed 003s opinion a little way down "5million with add ons up to 7", no need to get bitter and uppity about sky:L {Ed001's Note - oh well, his opinion is his own, mine is based on the figures submitted to the FA, so I will stick with mine. As for Sly, they continually try and post nonsense on the site in an attempt to get free advertising, I have every right to be annoyed with their lies.}

Northamptons Michael Jacobs will join Derby next week when he arrives back off holiday (Northampton fan)(15)(10)If your Northampton fan can you tell everyone that doubts this that he told everyone in his local pub and friends and family that he is leaving to derbyApparently he did mate. Obviously can't be 100% but the talk up here is that a deal is close.Jacobs isnt on holiday :/ so this is another wrong jacobs talk... thought he had already signed for derby? more lie's....I know i wear claret and white tinted glasses but in my very serious opinion Jacobs will one day not only grace the premiership but will play for England. If Derby don't get this deal sorted soon then more fool themNo this is the right Michael Jacobs, i have him on facebook and he is in ibiza with 2 of the team mates (johnson & arron davies)
-Northampton FanHe's a fantastic talent. The best player we've produced in a long time. Good luck to the lad.Not on holiday? Want to check his twitter? He left for a week holiday to Ayia Nappa on Wednesday. Check on there. Get your facts right.I do not know were he is or wear he is going but i like the player and how ever gets him a great talent at a bargain price
Northampton fan for years if you go good luck MichealI am a cobblers fan and i think jacobs needs to go , he cant say in the lower leagues all his life he is just to good . i think he will become a prem star in the future and hopefully try and push for a england placeIm a massive derby fan and what i have seen of the videos and highlights and him being only 20 will fit right in with our young squad he is a talent and has also recieved a england u21 call up from stuart pearce.He goes to ayia nappa with a friend of mine soon, he also told this friend he has agreed to sign for derby after going upto moor farm a few thursdays back to finalise it.

Derby county are in for Dan Harding of Southampton. The former Leeds and Ipswich left back has bags of Championship experience but has been largely left out since the purchase of. Danny Fox last summer.(18)(13)Derby want a Lb no older than 25Afraid this isn't true. He has made some pretty permenant recent changes, indicative that he is remaining in Southampton for a while yet.Too Old for the RamsI think it could be true-with Englands next left back coming through for Saints, will they keep 3 other left backs in the squad-don't think so.Dickson will go before Harding. Seems he ha been given reassurances by Adkins over next season.Dan Harding just moved in to a house in Hiltingbury (February), he was in Knightwood renting until thenI do hope this is true! he is woeful at crossing to light weight and not fast enough! he is barely championship standard! he started less then 10 games against championship opposition last season! You can have him!

Coleraine Chairman Hugh Wade moved quickly to support Manager Oran Kearney in his bid to keep prolific striker Curt Allen.

Allen was a target for both Bury and Falkirk
and is believed to have a 10000 pound buyout clause in his contract, which has 11 months to run.
Allen is settled on the Irish Coast but a move to a bigger stage could suit the players personal ambitions.

Expect contract talks to begin on his return from the TT races in the IOM.

Coleraine are known to play good direct football and Kearney himself has been the subject of much talk regarding a move to Scottish Football.(6)(3)Hugh Wade is not the chairman of Coleraine FC it is Colin McKendry

Brian stock has finally agreed personal terms now just waiting for too clubs clubs to agree a fee Bournemouth won't pay any more than 500k doncaster holding out for 500k this is from Doncaster fan(10)(10)This just dont make sense. if doncaster want 500k and bournemouth wont go higher then 500k , the deal should be agreed?I'll take him down myself for 500k I'll fit his crutches in the boot aswell hes never off em and how can he talk to Bournemouth if Doncaster ain't agreed owtWhat's the point discussing personal terms if a fee hasn't already been agreed? {Ed001's Note - often happens that way, because the team's budget to buy a player will often be influenced by how much they have to pay out in wages.}Be sad to see him leave if its true. But the wages he is on we need more games from him. Deal deal deal. Backs gone and he can't play week in week out.I havnt signed for Crawley Sean O'Driscoll is a good man but Doncaster is my team now, so i want to get them promoted or if not get to the play-offs with them!

Having banked 7m Burnley now have the funds to bring in their identified targets. These are well known to be:

Jason Shackell
Bret Pitman
Oliver Norwood
Adam Clayton(15)(16)Burnleys spendings

Steve Davies and James Bailey-2.5 million
Bret Pitman-450k
Adam Clayton-850k

No Jason Shackell
Oliver Norwood has alot of clubs offering
him a contractI think you will find the total was £7m INCLUDING ADD ONS, so you will not receive £7m up front.My brother taught Oliver Norwood when he was at Fulledge Colts youth FC, he is so proud of him, no matter what club he goes to, but he would be so proud if he plays for his hometown club BURNLEY FC.

So come Oliver go to Burnley, Mr Paul Brooker-Carey would be so happyThe fee was 6.5M with only 3M being paid outright and the other 3.5M paid over the rest of his contractYou wont get Pitman for 450k, more like 800kIts actually six million then a million in add ons

Charlton chasing the following players in the following positions ,they will not sign them all and some are either ors

Goalkeeper Ben Alnwick ,David Button ,Conrad Logan or Jimmy Walker

Right Back Gavin Hoyte ,Stuart Parnaby

Centre Backs Kyle Bartley ,Michael Turner ,Tamas Kadar Darren Purse and Darren O'Dea

Central Mid field Keith Andrews ,Hayden Mullins ,Dean Parrett , Darrel Russell and John Bostock

Left Mid field Stephen Quinn ,Anthony Wordsworth,Julian Gray or Sanchez Watt.

Striker Martyn Waghorn ,Sam Baldock or Francois Zoko(13)(27)The only impression Parrett left at Charlton was on the cushion of his seat on the subs bench!Hoyte struggled in L2 with afc Wimbledon!
No way is he championship quality, do you mean Justin Hoyle who got releasedMate, what have you been smoking?

Most of these layers would struggle to make it into a league side and Powell clearly has no intention of signing them.HAHA John Bostock, Julian Gray and Hayden Mullins

lancashire telegraph reporting Southampton have today completed the signing of jay rodriguez. also saying burnley are still targetting jason shackell and brett pittman(19)(6)You will not get Jason Shackell.
What is wrong with you people the paper
says you have made a 1million pound bid
we paid 1.1 million last summer.Why on earth would we accept an offer that is less than what we paid.He was our best player last season playing nearly every
game.even a 3.5 million bid would be rejected as Barker will be back for the last 10 games or so and if derby make a promotion push.The Barker and Shackell would be key to premier league successChill out, just saying what they put in the paper, doesn't mean I said it will Happen3.5m wouldn't be rejected? What are you high?

With Southampton completing the signing of striker Jay Rodriguez from Burnley, they are set to let Lee Barnard leave on loan for 6 months with the chance to extend it until the end of the season in January. Crystal Palace are leading the chase.

Jason Puncheon is once again attracting interest with Crystal Palace, Millwall, Blackpool and Bolton all interested. Palace have already made an offer of around £750k which is set to be accepted if Southampton can strike a deal for young right back Nathaniel Clyne (Puncheon will then be included in the deal plus around £2.5 million.)(23)(8)The WALL have NO MORE interest in Puncheon 100%!Jay rod what a waste of moneyReturn on investment will be 100% in 12 mos. Certainly not a waste of money.^ 21 years of age. Englands next big thing? ^Signals are that Saints have some further business brewing with Palace, following the loan of Martin, and whether through Barnard or Puncheon, it could equally be for Zaha as Clyne.Wouldn't say Jay Rodriguez is a waste of money, for 7 million, with his record in the Championship I'd say it could turn out to be a good buy for them. Despite that, I do wonder what will happen to Lambert and Sharp now. I can't see any one of the three wanting to play second fiddle to the others.

About Puncheon, I'd happily have him come to Palace. Despite having Zaha on one side, Scannell hasn't really established himself on the other wing, the experience would be great. Although I had heard you were going to offer Butterfield to try and tempt us to sell Clyne to you. Myself I'd prefer Puncheon, though both of them would be great!- Palace fanWe dont want puncheon and clyne is not going to southampton, he`ll either go to a top 6 club or he`ll sign a new contract. we`ll take barnard cos he knows where the goal is, maybe he could remind murrayFair points palace an although I believe jay rod is a long term replacement for lambert and could play out wide, you've got a good centre back in MartinHow is he a waste of money, one of the best strikers in the championship and hes only 22. Good signing and he will improve a lot, when he grows out of Southampton he will go for a profitBarnard's a top player, he could of been huge for saints if not for his injuries (and bottling people) he knows where the goal is and would be quality for any champ team, i hope hes involved in a possible zaha deal, but only on loan.Murray knows where the goal is but hasn't had the support and a new partner in crime would help him barnard or even a crafty bid for lambert if he doesn;t want to play second fiddleLee Barnard was found innocent at Salibury Crown Court. Case closed.Wtf craffty bid for Lambert, he will be main strikerYou will never sign lambert!Barnard was good in league 1, Probably be decent enough in the championship but is surplus to requirements at saints now really.
"Cheeky bid for Lambert"
He's just won championship player of the season, golden boot and back to back promotions. And he'll miss out on prem football to drop down and play for a Midtable championship club?? have a word!


10 Jun 2012 18:04:06
collins to leave shrewsbury(22)(6)I doubt it..he is too loyal. But who are all the teams interested??Watford are favsHe's on his way to Watford"Too loyal"? What a strange thing to say, unless you know him personally, you have no idea as to his views on loyalty. He is not a Shrewsbury lad or a youth product and has only been with Shrewsbury for 18 months- can't quite see why he would have too much loyalty. Seems like he's off to me.He likes it at Shrewsbury. I just hope nobody has come in for him as surely if he had no attatchment personally to the club he would be gone.
He is on holiday

All you doubters have now been
proved wrong, as Jay Rod has
now signed for Saints(19)(9)We will always have doubters no one give us credit but all us real saints fans are the ones that count jealousy is a fickle thing coyrWhat doubters? all Burnley fans knew he was leaving.Wasnt Burnley that were doubting. Not sure why soton receive so much bad press on here. They have had an unbelievable couple of years and seems some butter folk can't hack it. But the reality is saints do have a bucket if cash (7mill for Rodriguez should suggest that) and are up and coming and play great football.Well done you've signed a player who has never played top level football...only team in for him as well....speaks volumesCompared to the Money paid for strikers with a lot less ability like Kenwyne Jones, Steven Fletcher and Connor Wickham who had never played top flight football it's a great deal - not too mention the money paid for Andy Carroll!^ Yet! excluding of course England U21s"Well done you've signed a player who has never played top level football"....We have signed one of the hottest prospects outside the Premier League...So yeah it is well done to Saints!Yeh - its only taken you about 12 months to get him.Sounds like a lot of pompy fans are very jealous that saints have ambition.. good luck to you saints and to Jay ... i think he will prove all the doubters wrong... £7m well spent ..... up the claretsA certain striker from ''BURNLEY'' isnt enough to survive in the premier league..SAINTS are creating a hype as if they have secured the signing of Messi or Ronaldo !Norwich signed lots of players who had never played in the Prem last season and they did well-not having played in the top flight before is a lazy argument-after all, until any player had played in the top flight, he hasn't got that experience!


10 Jun 2012 17:35:27
Jay signs for Saints its on our official club site!!!!!(22)(9)Great signing for you there`s every chance he will go on and play for England .Good luck Jay we'll miss youGreat signing and I believe he was 5 million rising to 6.5 depending on saints survival - good deal I thinkCheers Burnley. We're used to our best players being sold on and know it sucks. Hope u boys can use money to move forward and push for promotion.

qpr and westham are locked in a two way battle for celtic midfielder wanayama(13)(14)Never going to happen! many may not know him but he will be playing for a much(one of the biggest) bigger club in the future. he likes it at Celtic with the history/fans/charity as well CL(which he loves and wants to play against the best clubs in europe and not just epl clubs) and still 3 years on contract. unless you pay 10+mill(but we will not sell him until a few years, hope keep him) cause he is going to be a GREAT player. he is going to stay at Celtic and would only move to one of the top clubs in europe, whats better about him is that he is down to earth and not easly turned buy money.He said himself he wants to go to the premWhat you reading newspapers...he didnt say that it is just bad and made up.I don't recall a quote from WanyamaThere was no quotes from him saying he wanted to leave , fabricated storyWanyama wants to stay in parkhead. It was all made up by the daily record that he was leaving!The newspaper quoted his father who says his son has no intentions of leaving celtic this season but would like to play in epl at some pointMoney always talks in football and the truth is QPR have a shed load of it. I guess if they want him they will put a deal together and we'll see how celtic and the boy react. Before you start with all the small club no history small fan base remember as i said ££££££ talksMoney does talk so if your club puts in a 14mill bid then he might be yours. but he will not go cheap even though he plays in spl because he is a beast and could/will be one of the best. but i can only see him going to a even bigger club then Celtic like one of the top 4 in epl and a top la liga, seri a club. which i think epl has a lower chance because they will not pay the price for a spl player where as other Europe clubs might even though he would like to play in epl one day.He's good enough for most Premier League teams - no point in signing for one of the worst ones to spend all season fighting relegation. Kevslug.Perhaps he wants to play for the real hoops (qpr) and not sum team in a lousy leagueCeltic are probably, realistically about 40x bigger than QPR...and only if you have at least £15millionCeltic Gave QPR ALLTHE MONEY FROM A FRIENDLY MATCH A FEW YEARS AGO BECAUSE THEY WHERE SO SKINT I WAS AT THE MATCH HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED.Bri Plymouth celtic pcsQPR hah lousy league doesn't mean lousy team, Celtic are 40 times bigger as someone said and that's being kind. let's face it outside the top 5-6 in the EPL the rest of the clubs are overpaid and poor in general.All those defenders would make qpr much strongerDe Jong will hardly leave the Prem champsDefoe and Giroud what a strike force

charlton are set to sign Dean Parrett from tottenham for 400k. the youngster had a loan spell at charlton at the arrival of chris powell and is said to have left an impression(8)(2)400k as if.Total rubbish about parrett... charlton will announce signing of Keith Andrews following Euro2012. CP wants even more goals from midfield and sees him as the ideal partner for Hollands. CP wants experience rather than young potential.

Solly rumoured to be off to West Ham -I fear he would be a bench warm at the very best in premiership. For his career he should play in championship and enjoy 1st team football. Great season for us and should stay to enjoy the good times

Also thing we need a striker (experienced) and a backup centre backAbsolute rubbish Parett is very average.

With Kyle Lafferty on the horizon of Huddersfield Town, Lee Novak has been told to find a new club.

This should spark interest from numerous clubs from all leagues including West Ham, Derby, Swindon and Fleetwood(5)(33)Maybe fleetwood and swindon, but not west ham, hes a big clumsy oaf! hail hailAre you seriously saying that a striker could join west ham (premier league) or fleetwood(league 2). there wood not be a league 2 striker playing in the prem or viisa versaClearly you dont know who he is then cos hes not big or clumsy he's small n fast and not a bad finisher, granted he's not premier class but not for the reason ur saying, just putting things about him cos u've not heard of him!Lafferty ye probs coming but Novak aint going nowhere!This would be good if trueNovak is Staying put FACTNo way super Novak is leaving huddersfield town, 1 of towns best players last season. Is work rate is outstanding u can't buy the kind of attitude he has so stop posting utter rubbish please. JohnNo chance of lafferty goin to HTFC, you couldnt afford his wages, also he wants top flight football, not championship footyGrayson has already announced his departures... Novak isn't going anywhere sunshine. Cracking player wo will do well in the Championship, but bless your cotton socks for the thought.... (Terrier)We can afford what we like deano sold his company for 200 million so laffertys wages is no problemAfter JR, Novak is Huddersfield best scorer, why would they let him go.If his work rate is as good as claimed then Paolo will 'ave him, provided 'udders really are letting him leave that is.We cant afford Laffertys wages?! i'd hardly say Rangers are in a secure financial position...
He wants to leave, had a fall out with Manager, We can afford his wages easy, we're very financially secure...Deano sold his card company for just over £300m. and he's already thrown bags of cash at the club, ye am sure we can afford laffertys wages,and the state rangers is in he's bound to jump ship!Novak is staying. TOP PLAYERLee Novak is a brilliant player, no chance of him leaving Huddersfield!!Novak is coming to Swindon, get in!!Would love him at Swindon but doubt it would happenNovak is going nowhere

Leicester to step up interest in Charlie Austin(Burnley) and Tom Ince(Blackpool) next week(6)(30)I can't see Tom Ince going anywhere in the ChampionshipSame with Charlie. Why would he go to Leicester when he's now the no.1 striker at Burnley? Ok money, ambition, all that carp, but still, he's not going to be the centre of attension.I can't see what money leicester can offer the most profitable club in the championship to make them part with that sort of young talent?? UTMP!! {Ed003's Note - Ince is 20 years old, he left L'pool for 1st team football and wages (on advice from his father) he is allowed to attack and his career will flourish for at least another 12 months where he is,I don't see him going anywhere either}

Jay Rodriguez has signed for Southampton. Pictures of him in a saints scarf surrounded by photographers and club officials at Limewood Hotel in the New Forest are going around the #saintsfc twitter feed(19)(6)2nd this!Saints have def signed jay rod its on.are website next target pleaseTrue all the news atm is of him signing a four year dealYep - deal done. Now on official website.
C'mon you SaintsIts on the saints website as wellYou'd think you'd signed Messi the way you lot of carrying onWe don't need Messi - we've got Lallana! Anyway we've been chasing Jay Rod for over a year - and his signing shows Saints are back in the Premier League and rapidly moving forwards. Wait until you've been in the old third division - then you'll understand."You'd think you'd signed Messi the way you lot of carrying on".....Oh sorry! How dare us for being excited about a signing, how dare a set of fans of a club who have been through hell and back and who are now back in the big time with a secure future and alot to look forward to get ever so slightly happy about a player with huge potential! How rude of us.The 'how dare us' post above superb. We've every right to be excited about the way things are going. We were 36 hours away from liquidation a few years back SO WE MAKE NO APOLOGIES WHATSOEVER so all you Saints haters out there GET IVER IT!^
"you'd think you'd signed Messi"
Why? It's big news. Smashed our transfer record, talented young player taken from under the noses of several established prem clubs. It's a lot to pay but he is a good player and only 22.
Stop being so bitter. {Ed003's Note - I think it's a case of humility more than anything,personally I think you have just made a great signing but some fans should chill a little]Ed, we're just fed up with the ste and bitterness that's all. A club gets a double promotion and is optimistic for furst time in ages and we get slated.
Ps great site and well done for your work.Im a burnley lad ,j rods will do a fantastic job for the saints,good luck to him and you guys next season ,his goals will make a difference its money well spent ,and greatly accepted.Ed 003- there are some fans who talk rubbish on here and make the rest look silly with nonsense comments but that is the same with each and every club.
To put it into perspective. What seems like just yesterday we were on the brink, there was no light at the end of the tunnel and it was grim news after grim news, almost didn't exist for a while.
New owners, new manager, new crop of young starlets, two promotions and now spending 7million on players! If the odd fan gets a little over excitable I think it's understandable! {Ed003's Note - I agree mate,you have done fantastic to come back from your troubles and congratulations,I'm quite sure you will stay up aswell (just my opinion) however you do not see the countless (smug) posts I/we have to delete through some of your over excited fans,anyway good luck I really think you have got a belting young striker in Jay Rod}

AFC Bournemouth are in discussions with Luton Town over winger Robbie Willmott. Led to believe Jayden Stockley/Joe Partington could join the BSP club on a season long loan as part of the deal.(8)(4)What is going on at Seward Stadium no signings from this manager just a load of waffle on these rumours-fact not fiction pleaseHe's made 3 signings already!!Willmott is out of contract........Groves has already stated that Partington is going to be in his midfield next season now that he is injury free, I would be surprised if he went. Stockley needs to get out on loan though as he is now way down the pecking order at AFCB.

At the end of June Blackburn Rovers will sack manager Steve Kean, the board are hoping to bring in their number one choice Alan Curbishley who could be offered £1million to take the job. If they fail to hire Curbishley then Rovers will attempt an controversial appointment by trying to lure Eddie Howe from local rivals Burnley.

Robert Snodgrass is to leave Leeds United for £6million to join Everton.

Ben Foster to leave Birmingham City to join Tottenham Hotspur for £5million.

Birmingham City to hire Billy Davies on a two year deal.

Michael Owen is in America to hold talks with La Galaxy.

Stuart Pearce is to quit is post as England Under 21's manager and to leave at the end of year.(12)(15)Everton will not spend 6m on s/grass... i have heard he wants to go to westham.Are you real howe to blackburn??????Foster will go to either QPR or West BromHowe is going swanseaEddie Howe would not ditch Burnley its just some rubbish deluded Blackburn Rumour made up just to wind Burnley fans up!I have heard he wants to go to west sham!!!yes the daily mirror is full of the truth.lolHowe will not go to Blackburn. Don't be daft! Swansea is a possibility, but not Blackburn!Why would Eddie Howe go to bol e wood park? dont think so .... in venky`s we trust...... UTC......Owen has stables in cheshire hes developing and is going train race horses after his footy career is over he said himself he is not looking to move where he cant give his stables 100% effort and wants to stay where he lives alreadyFoster is going to West Brom definately,he will be steve clarkes biggest signinig,the rest will be free,s or unattached,also scharner and andrews will be given contracts.Am a Leeds fan... 6m for Snodgrass, where does he sign...... Good player, but is he worth that? Oh, what am I saying .... Delphi to Villa for 8m.... Nuff said me thinks

Ipswich in discussions with millwall about James Henry a long term target of paul jewells. The deal could see Nathan Ellington moving in the other direction after failing to impress last season. Jewell looking to add 4/5 more players to his recent addition elliot Hewitt,(8)(6)Ipswich are having a laugh!NO CHANCE!Nathan Ellington? The same player who accused millwall of racist abuse?

Pull the other one!Millwall fans won't like hearing this. They certainly won't want to sell Henry, although he would fit the bill as a young, hungry, athletic player.
I can't see it happening to be honest but I would like it to be true as I've heard good things about him.As if Henry would go to Ipswich it's no step up is it?James Henry loves life at the New Den and wants to HELP them to the PREM'SHIP!Defo leaving millwall then ;)Millwall premiership!!!!! how funny...

Wolves are looking to bring in Michael Krohn-Dehli who scored against Holland. He is a player who new Wolves manager StÃ¥le Solbakken is a fan of. He could cost in the region of £3,000,000(10)(7)Just cause he scored 1 goal against holland dont mean we will sign him does it jeezHmm see cus he rated at least 13 million by his clubLets stay realistic and not assume every goalscorer in the Euros is going to want to come to Wolves.Oh my god! Every semi decent player from the Euro's will be linked to Wolves. Got to love this time of year :-)Doubt it to meny prem clubs looking at himThey were going to sign the entire dutch squad in the 70,s some things never change.

Bury Assistant Peter Shirtliff has a special challenge set him by friend and manager Barker.

Centre Half Shirtliff has been tasked with contacting his portfolio of contacts to find the shakers a new wide man who can play at full back or wide left.

Pace and height are the main points the RB wants and the Boss is alleged to prefer a team of six foot plus players as he aims to build upon the over achievemnts of last season.

Jon Parkin heads the shopping list but his 5k p[er week request could stop any real Bury interest.(2)(2)Please take Mike Jones Back. I'll drive him if necessaryNicky ajose and mike jones !

I would absolutely hate to have Ian Holloway as our manager, most over rated piece of garbage in Football management.
On the other hand, the Swans are looking at signing;
-Giovanni Dos Santos (on loan-never given real chance at Tottenham, can play behind striker or on either wing)
-Dani Carvajal (on loan from Real Madrid attack minded RB competent in defense)
-Curtis Davies (Solid season with Birmingham, proven in PL)
-John Guidetti (on loan-free goalscoring form in Eredivise)
-John Gossens (replacement for Gylfi)(7)(19)So, your manager has no say in who you will sign?
Any club will wait for a new manager before any decision is made who to sign-so, basically, your post is total rubbish!Ollie has said he's not interested in the Swansea post and that's good news for us Pool fans. He's worked miracles for us so he's the dogs.Who is this muffin who made the original post? What a cracking job Olly has done for Blackpool off very slender resources, but there again he doesn't need people like me to defend him his record speaks for itself.True, because Ian holloway didn't do anything of real credibility at Blackpool! Turned them from a nothing club at a premier league club. I would love to have holloway at my club.Please dont forget youre only in the Prem because Rodgers is a good manager...Odd's on to drop back into the Championship after this season....even more so because youre only good player has jumped at the chance to join Liverpool......Holloway far to good for you and will eventually join a large club (Like Cardiff...ROFL)Dos Santos is Wigan bound.Lucky Howe is coming then. Holloway v Howe....... Discuss {Ed003's Note - B'pool, Budget £7.8m 5th place v Howe, Budget £13.8m 13th place}Any team that gets to the prem has to have a good manager... so that is a nul point... Holloway has made Blackpool promotion contenders, ex prem team and one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the championship... you get more than your money is worth watching Blackpool and the play-off final proved that West Ham were a joke... Heads up Carlton its another one for you...The OP doesn't know anything about Ollie, or what he has achieved on and off the field.Curtis davies isn,t good enough, why did villa get rid, did ok for blues in championship,that,s his level,best to steer clear.

Man City have offered Tottenham Adam Johnson, Emmanuel Adebayor and cash for Gareth Bale.(15)(18)And cash? That wouldn't be a good deal for City.

ex norwich striker a wilbraham is wanted by crystal palace. he is a free agent after being released by city(15)(5)Everyone's known that for weeksPlease dougie no no no, he`s nearly 33 and scored 2 goals in 22 games for norwich last season. we`ve got too many strikers who dont know where the goal is.He would be a good signing for palace, most of them 22 games were from the bench. He gives 110% and puts himself about. He would do a good job for you.Bring in gianfranco zolaConnecting dougie:
what do you call a man who burried himself in sand... doug!!2nd guy who commented get you facts right...last season he started 2 and came on 9 timesWhat do you call a man with a spade in his head...

Derby County have shortlisted 5 strikers that they would like to sign for next season. They are:

Sam Vokes
Nicky Maynard
Sam Baldock
Johnny Russell
Jamie Murphy

He will be attempting to sign two of them with Maynard and Baldock top of his list.

Nigel Clough has also got his eye on Southampton playmaker Guly Do Prado who looks set to fall out of avour following Southampton's promotion to the prem.

Other signings are as follows:
Jacobs (deal nearly complete)
Ogude (in talks with Valerenga this week)
Pearce (yet to make a bid)

All these transfers funded from budget origianally set with the additions of Bailey, and Davies deals.(10)(14)He will be signing Maynard and Russell
their his prefered options.

Daniel powell bid has been made
Krystian pearce is to join derby after
a bid was accepted last week
Jacobs has already told friends and family
hes moving to derby.
Derby have offered 350k for ogude and contract talks will start asap.
Paul Dixon Has been offered a contract
along with Karleigh Osbourne but with
other clubs offering contracts the players are thinking over their optionsAlso we are not getting Guly do Prado
but A suprise transfer of ex favourite
loanee Alberto Bueno.Its all over twitter
and News updates.He has a release clause of 450,000 and has been in good form in spain he will be our Attacking MidfielderThe is no way Maynard will go to DerbyNo its not all over twitter. You guys are deluded. Derby have not got the funds to buy such luxury players (derby fan)Maynard has only just moved on to West Ham. Surely they won't release him that quickly?Deluded?
If you are a derby fan you would know the following things.
Nigel has a starting transfer budget of 1.7 million

with Burnley offering 2.5 million for
James Bailey and Steve davies

.Chris maguire leaving for 600k + to
Watford,Sheffield wednesday or Dundee united

Miles addison 175k+ to Coventry,Bristol
city and Charlton

Lee croft to Oldham or St Johnstone

Ben davies to Shrewsbury.

That gives him a Final Transfer budget
of 5-6 million
with 4 of those players being free transfers how isnt it possible you need to stop putting a downer on the club.The new owners have made finances secure.
We have upgraded Youth Facilties and
Boast some of the Best Talent in the Country.For those who say Clough Out?
Are the Deluded ones.He has been one of our best Manages since Clough senior
and you will see why this season.He producing Excellent young players Hendrick,O brien and Naylor.No. You have 0 proof our budget is 1.7m. You make stuff up. We have a strict wage bill and can't afford these players. Clough and Glick have already come out and said we have to sell before we buy so i dunno where you're getting all this "transfer news" from. Sounds like you're making it up.Hold on.. When did Tom Glick and Cloug say we needed to sell to buy. The quote of Mr Glick was we do not need to sell to buy players.
You really need to start supporting the club, not just bagging the Management and team off. From a season ticket holder born in Ashbourne living in London away and home....Hahah do you think with a transfer budget of 6million that derby would be finishing 12th?Where has this £1.7m figure come from?

A deal between Yeovil Town and goalkeeper Chris Weale will be struck over the next week. The sticking point has been over Weale's wages but Yeovil are waiting for confirmation that they will receive £20,000 from nPower for winning an online competition. Weale is keen to return to his hometown should the the wages be sorted(6)(6)I believe we can get weale but we cant pay his wages and exeter won the fanpower stadiumUm no Yeovil won the fanpower stadium shootout and exeter won the stadium filler.Exeter didn't win, Yeovil did!Yeovil won the 20k from fanpowerstadium, Exeter won the 10k there were 2 parts to the competition.
If Weale is coming to Yeovil he knows he will have to take a pay cut. No player would drop to Yeovil without expecting less moneyThe £20k is not going to or allowed to be used on player transfers.

Eddie Howe is not leaving Burnley. He has come out and said this. He is committed to the club.(14)(6)He said that at Bournemouth too, then 2 days later...............Thats what Paul lambert said to Norwich and Brendan Rodgers said to SwanseaDon t beleive him
he said the same at
if offered more money
he wil goIt's all about the club that comes in for him. Like at Bournemouth, he rejected a couple of clubs such as C Palace and then when the just relegated Burnley come in for him, he came :) Can see him going to Swansea if they offer it to him.


10 Jun 2012 13:40:32
Carlisle have confirmed 2 experienced players coming in soon, this is on top of replacements needed for any out of contract players who do not commit to the club, anyone any ideas or thoughts on who they might be?, cheers(4)(2)Stuart Parnaby & Daniel NardielloThink 1 is cadamarteri or have u already signed him?Nardielo signed for Rotherham I say cadamarteri and parnabyOne is defiently parnaby don't no about nardielloDaniel nardiello has gone rotherham.Oh yeah, i meant Cadamatri, whoops!Clarkson to signThe first player [mentioned ages ago] and now confirmed in Greg Abbott's press interview is Mike Edwards from Notts County. Not the youngest - but a very decent defender!

Recently released Barnet striker Izale McLeod will be joining Oldham this week on a free transfer. He will sign a 3 year contract with a basic salary of £3,000 a week but with big goal and win bonuses. The deal will be announced this week and will be made official from the 1st of July.(5)(22)This guy is going to be a busy fella according to this site he is due to sign for nearly all the clubs in legue 1!£3000 a week with bonus's. U avin a laff mate. We could probably get 4 players for that.Thats rubbish he wants to stay local to london for his family its a load of rubbishDickov wouldn't waste so much money on one player as no one player is bigger than the club at oldham.Going DoncasterGoing doncaster...... Why ? Is he a big racing fan or summat ? Dont want him at Oldham anyway, hes average, would rather the Shefki signI am a Oldham fan i hope & pray that Shefki is NOT at Oldham next year - He Not good enough !I can confirm the rumour, but deny the wages. we are talking around £1700 not £3000So 16 goals in a poor team is NOT good enough then, who would you like instead, maybe mario gomez would make you happy ? should he have a good tournament that isShefki scored 16 goals. However, 5 of them were in cup games. So in his 41 league appearances, he scored 11 goals. Giving him a goals-per-game average of 1 in 4. I agree that we're not the amongst the best in league one, however, a 1 in 4 goal/game, in my eyes, isn't worth the fact that he's the highest paid player. By some distance.Oh by the way. Regarding Kuqi. Reuben Reid who we've just released, is ten years younger, was paid HALF as much as Kuqi and didn't rack up anywhere near the amount of yellow/red cards. Oh, and before I forget, HE HAD THE SAME GOAL/GAME RATIO as Kuqi!Well your entitled to your opinion , i just think he is capable at league 1 to step it up and keep his good start to the season going. Over the last 2 seasons the WHOLE team as dropped off in the second half. Mark my words whoever else we get wont score as many goals for usGot that wrong KUQI wasn't the highest paid last season. Guess who was ???Reuben was overweight lazy n was just happy picking up a wageI would say robbie simpson was the highest, and to even try to compare shef with that fatty reid makes me so angry, like that guy said he was just happy picking up his wage. Kuqi was not and was not even content when he had 1 of the best scoring records in the leagueI would be a little less harsh on Reid, His work rate at the start of last season was second to none and he was the foil Kuqi needed to score his goals. Look at the stats Reid gets injured Kuqi stops scoring.Forget about the pair of them we need to try & move on as a club & the best way is with some new faces !Well said ried was best player on the team until he got injured .managements fault letting him get overwieght you dont see fatties at old trafford .alex would have had his mouth wired upSo the best way to move on is to dismantle the team every year and bring new faces ? cos thats been really successful for us in the last 15 or more years. Dont talk tripe,the more successful teams are the ones that play together longerSome absolute rubbish on this post, Reid scored 5 goals 4 of them penalties so 1 from open play and you want him kept on above a guy that scored 16 goals in a piss poor team. Reid wasn't even injured this season he was dropped for being caught out several times on the lash the night before a game and boom never played again same with another certain player who no longer is with us. Reid was useless.Absolute rubbish reid was injured for 3 monthsKuqi IS THE HIGHEST PAID PLAYER. Paul Dickov told us exactly that after the fans' game. He actually asked us to guess! And then he told us!But we do all agree he was fat then ? Kuqi please give us the swan dive again this coming season, and thanks for keeping us in the division

Swindon town are exploring the possibility of a part ex with Bournemouth between Matt Tubbs and Matt Ritchie. Tubbs has become surplus to requirements at Bournemouth and Ritchie is seen as the ideal replacement for Marc Pugh. Swindon wanting cash plus Tubbs but Bournemouth not keen on this(5)(21)We did not tubbs when at salisbury,why should we want him now? 👎Pugh hasn't gone anywhere and will not be sold. He has another year on his contract and will either sign a new one or will leave on a Bosman when his current deal expires.Tubbs has flopped at league 1 level so why would we swap him for another potential flop like Ritchie? He is not proven at this level. Groves has said he doesn't want passengers this seasonAfcb fan here richie won't come and tubbs won't leave end of stop bringing up richie it won't happinWhat part of you won't get Richie do you b muff fans find hard to understand?Tubbs is not Surplus to Requirements and has stated that he does not want to leaveI believe the post said "Swindon were exploring the possibility"...... I would get into a battle of wits with you Swindon fans to appears you are all unarmed........Richie was player of the year the season before last when we were in div1 so how can he be unproven at this level?Why would Ritchie come and sit on a bench at Bournemouth when he can play every game at Swindon?Player of the year the season before last? Was that the season you went down without a wimper? Oh right it was.... UnprovenAre yuou having a laugh why would we want Tubbs he wont cut it at L1 as L2 is his max level. No Thanks we'll keep Ritchie and he wont go to Bournemouth its a step backwards. Small club - small crowds dodgy chairman. He'll stay at Swindon he likes playing under Paolo.Tubbs surplus to requirements? He has been injured, we signed him for the long term and thats that! Ritchie however may be bought if Pugh leaves but i don't think either deal will happen.Ritchie will never go to Bournemouth. He wants to further his career. When he eventually leaves Swindon it will be to a Championship side , not a tin pot club.Tractor rage from the Swindon boys, attendances don't win you football matches!Ha Ha, we won plenty last season, ritchie wont join bornmuff i would put money on it, fyi bmuff are div 1 like us with similar if not smaller average attendance. As for history maybe your rich chairman can buy you 20 thousand fans to go with your average 7 thousand so you can actually feel like a big time charley club, other than that your average like us.^^^^ I like this Swindon fan above, he's the only one of them living in the real world and to be fair he's given a pretty honest assesment of both clubs. Take a bow son

Balraim Chainrai is considering Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee for the role of Director of Football at Portsmouth FC.(5)(14)Huh why is he thinking of sacking appleton in a month time and then appointing him can't be true where did you hear this ?As long as he is happy to be paid in the currency of buttons.Has Chanri taken over at Fratton again? As far as i know they are still in Administratiion.I hear chainrai leaving when he finished getting his money back FACT^cva been given to creditors to see if he can return looks likelyLevi Kushnir is Chainrai's main advisor and he suggested bringing in someone with experience of the lower leagues as a steadying influence at the club. It could well be McGhee.So it'll be a temporary appointment then, as Chanrai will be gone by Christmas.Chainrai may be gone by Christmas but it'll be Christmas 2015 because to get any decent money back he knows Pompey will need to be playing in the Championship by then. McGhee could be the right man to help achieve that objective as a link between Chanrai and Appleton.Can not see any additional 'administration/mgt' being added as this will only aggrevate the wage bill.

Derby midfielder Craig Bryson has been linked with Celtic for 2m(4)(11)Try £4million at leastTry 5 millionWill not moveIm a derby fan, if anyone wanter to sign craig bryson they would have to pay big money 5m+ he won all 3 of our player of the season awards by some distance a head of jason shackle who club value at 3.5m and both our top goal scorers!Is this the same Bryson who played with Kilmarnock and was bought for £350'000 . Now he's worth £ 4m , £5m . That's really cheered me upScott browns twice the player of bryson never mind wanyama kayal etc and 5 million when derby got him on a free transfer. never going to happen! keep him.350000, sorryBryson aint good enough,end of conversation.

Just found this site, a couple of days ago i was in a location in Southampton where a couple of saints fans were talking about Jermain Defoe coming in Jay R refuses. Any one else heard this one?(1)(23)I would rather have Defoe than Jay...I would rather have Jay-a 22yr old, with the potential to develop within the team spirit that Saints have. Can't see Defoe fitting in.Jay Rod 100% signed for SaintsWell we have signed Jay Rod now!Do not want defoe
jay rod signed

10 Jun 2012 12:40:43
QPR are intrsted in a number of players however some are not as true as others.

GK: Netherlands report that Swansea goalkeeper has been contacted with QPR - Swansea will not let go of Vorm he still has a long time left on his contrzct and his contract, therefore Swansea will most probaly reject all offers.

Foster - This seems much more likely than Vorm as Birmingham have agreed to let him go as he does not want to play championship football, and with West Brom contacting other keepers he look set tpo sign for QPR for just over 4 million.

Forster and Gomes - Celtic have nearly tied up a deal to bring in Forster so that QPR deal look unlikely and Gomes has not been contacted by QPR and that is 100% factual he has not been contacted, however the rumour appeared due to the keeper wanting to move else where to get first team football, however he wanted to stay in London. With Robert Green leaving and possibly going to spurs West Ham fans watch this space? Gomes to west ham?

Green: This looked likely 5 days ago now all speculations have been blown away, however West Brom seem close to signing him on a free, which would mean Foster does not have a choise of returning to Hawthrons meaning he will go to QPR.


Taiwo: He does not look set to sign for QPR as Benfica are poised to take the left back from QPR's reach.

Samba: Looks unlikely because he has still got alot of time left on his contract, however personally he would be intrested in a move back due to the racism incident and the fact that Mark Hught signed him on a Blackburn.

Danny Simpson: This one look very likely because Simpson said he would prefer a move to London, however Norwich are still instrested. Fulham are aslo hot conteders to get his signature. QPR look second favourites behind Fulham, however QPR seem more eager to fill that position and allow Onuoha to drop back to cover centre back and sometimes right back when Simpson is out.

Midfielders -

Diakite: He has signed a deal worth just over 3 million, and although QPR has announced nothing the Nancy website has confirmed he is now a QPR player.

Adam Johnson: I can fully confirm this will not happen liverpool are instrested and the 18 million price tag will put QPR off.

Nigel De Jong: Pretty sure QPR are tryi g to build a Man City midfield, but this seems more likely than Johnson as De Jong has lately seen alot of the bench and has played under Mark Hughes before, also QPR need another deep lying holding midfielder and De Jong fits the bill.

Victor Wanyama: This rumours has just come out that QPR has targeted Defensive MIdfielder Wanyama seems possible but dont know much else on this rumour.

Victor Moses: Wigan Boss and Manager has said Moses is going no where END OF THAT!

Diame: He is on a free contact and with Villa and QPR chasing in signature, he will most probaly be in the PL next season. QPR will face tough negotiating to persuade Diame to snuff big name clubs.


Andy Johnson: Andy Pandy makes sense because having played under Mark Hughes with Bobby Zamora it seems quite likely, however will QPR be smart enough to look at the age of all the strikers thats why I do not think he will return to Mark Hughes strike force.

Giroud: Unlikely, however if QPR can meet the release clause of 12.8 million and can give Giroud enough wages and persuade him who knows? We all know QPR can splash the cash in wages so why not? Montipieller have to let him go if a club meets the clause, therefore the people who say the club will not let him go, THEY WILL HAVE TO!

Defoe: Personally I think he is very underrated! He
he is a very good striker, and does not get enough credit. He is desperate not to move away from White Hart Lane, however with Redknapp not certain about his future QPR could be one of the favourite to Land his signature. Around 10 mill.

Hooper: There has been alot of specualtion Hopper will leave this summer, there was in January but it didnt happen so why will it happen now? It will happen now because clubs no there fate wether there going up or down, and alot of the premoted sides such as West Ham and Souhtampton are fighting for there signature. Also QPR are said to be intrested, and with Hooper wanting a move to The EPL he may well be hot favourite to sign for QPR.

All rumours come from reliable scources or personal involvment within the club. (Part of the QPR media team)(3)(27)Clearly dont no nothing giroud has a 50mill release clausePart of the daily record propeganda machine you mean!Would almost definitelyt faced this sack if you were part of the QPR media team, spreading transfer information all of the web, i got in trouble on my apprentiship with swansea for posting something on a facebook group about the Danny Graham signing.Doubt Foster will go to QPR he has already said he wants to stay in the midlands.The person who posted the first comment it's a 12.8 million release cause !Hope we get some of them Forwards would love hooper and Danny Simpson !Would absolutely love having Adam johnsonGiroud has a 12.8m release clause, his manager said he's worth 50m in todays market, all they'll get it is 12.8The Giroud release clause is reported to be £12.8 million its a figure repeated in all the rumours about a move to England for him. The £50 million is what his current club value him at can't see him going to QPR but there's no saying what wenger will do which may leave the door open for a move to loftus rd. Lets not forget the reality of football and that is money talks. I can remember when brazilian and italian internationals started turning up at middlesbourgh. QPR do seem to be a club with ambition and throw in wealthy owners and a willingness to take on a big gamble.Villa are a bigger club by far.....a bigger club does not make for a nicer club, I would rather support little old Norwich, local fans supporting tne team 100%, no glory hunters.....OTBCTo the person who said 'Clearly dont no nothing giroud has a 50mill release clause' well for a start it's 'know' and the release clause is reported to be £12.8M, not £50M, so before you post obnoxiously, get your facts straight.Foster hasnt said he is staying in the midlands, he said he would prefer to. He will probably go to QPR tgough because of moneyHooper isnt leaving celtic he's staying he said he's happy at celtic and he won't leave because he will playing champions league football next seasonHooper said he wants to stay with celtic for another few years but would someday liek to go to the epl and even if he did go this summer i can only really seeming him go to southampton to join up with atkinsYe so basically saying he wants to stay in the midlands!Foster will be an Albion player next season 100%. He's already said he wants to remain living in the Midlands and is unwilling to spend hours travelling. Albion need two keepers and he will be one of them.Foster will be at west brom as he wants to stay in the midlands, he has a young family that would not want to move his kids out of school.No one likes Villa. Tecnically they are insolvent. The kitty is empty. Only budget will come from sold players.

hull city possible ins (we wont get them all stevebruce is only after 4-5 players so calm down about how many names
craig gordon
dave jones
keith andrews
martins (maybe)
michael turner
josh king(4)(21)Bruce has already said that he wont be going for campbell or turner.No chance with f campbellYou couldnt afford gordons wagesWe have a chance of getting

We need another keeper, a center back as cover for hobbs and chester , and a new forward to make sure matty fryatt makes his mind up. he wouldnt sell his hull house and move his family down south for nothing would he?He didn't say he isn't going for them he said it is unlikelyLiam Cooper is more than adequate cover at this level, in fact, he was very good in the last few games of the seasonCooper is a decent centre back and has some potential, but if we're pushing for promotion then we need a reasonably experience centre back to partner ChesterHobbs scheduled back in Sept/Oct?

charlton will sign quinn and andrews by the end of the month(3)(16)Quinns signing for Ipswich this week.Andrews going to huddersfield mate!I am a charlton fan and Powelly has left it to late to sign 'quality' players. We are going down mate. Shef Wed + Huddersfield are better teams than us!Andrews ain't going to Huddersfield we are paying more I can confirm, and Quinn is coming to us, he met chris powell a while ago and CP watched him and McGuire in the PO final ( which you lost ahah )MATE, andrews wants to go to a club which is moving up (Charlton), not one that will be lucky if they move down with any dignity intact (Huddersfield)To start with why would anyone who has played in the Premier League this season go to Huddersfield who came fourth in League 1? I was surprised when he was linked with us (CAFC) but we would certainly be a more appealing destination than Huddersfield (not that I have anything against HTFC). As for Quinn signing for Ipswich, this may or may not be true but if we are interested then we would be a better club for him to sign for as we are a team on the up who will likely finish upper mid table according to the bookies whereas ITFC are going nowhere and will be bottom half again. Can see Quinn going somewhere with more ambition and potential to Ipswich whether that be CAFC or notI'm not a htfc fan or a cafc fan,but I can confirm that kieth Andrews has agreed to become a huddersfield player I'm also 99% sure that a fee with Leeds has been agreed for Adam Clayton.After watching Andrews play for Ireland today, Huddersfield can have him...Yes a team that came second and a team that won the play offs are better than a team that equaled the league record set by fulhum. Get with itAnd who dented that record?? CAFCI can't for season to begin then we'll see who finishes higher hudds or charlton, watch the cafc fans crawl back under their rock when hudds start climbing the tableAnd who dented that record? CAFC

Actually it was Bournemouth and Peterborough ;)No it was charlton!'I am a charlton fan and Powelly has left it to late to sign 'quality' players. We are going down mate. Shef Wed + Huddersfield are better teams than us!'
clearly about as much of a charlton fan as iain dowie.... charlton are reportedly signing baldock and liam lawrence

Premier League new boys Southampton are set to offer Australian free agent Lucas Neill a one year contract(11)(18)I have heard this too. Think it's going to happen sooner rather than later too!He isnt a free agent is he? I swear he plays in United Arab EmiratesWell a one year deal would be a good option, if he doesn't work out he wants to head back to australia and end his career there anyway. he could cover the left cb role whilst we sort out poor dan seabournes situationHe's getting on a bit, how old is he now?^ What about Hooiveld?His middle eastern club released him earlier this month, he is 34 but could offer some good experience at the back.


10 Jun 2012 12:04:21

Heard from a reliable source within stoke city that michael owen has signed a pre contract that is 40k a week pay as you play.

Negotiations with robert huth have stalled and will recommence on tuesday.(4)(19)Why would he sign a pre contract if he's a free agent? He's had talks with Stoke last week but not signed anything.


10 Jun 2012 11:57:20
any real reading news??????(5)(11)Apparently not...Have approached Juventus about Milos Krasic. Carlos Sanchez deal just waiting on Visa...I have heard that a few clubs including Manchester United are after young Micheal Hector from Reading. Everton, Fulham and Sunderland. Very similar to a young Rio Ferdinand, could be a good player in the future.

10 Jun 2012 11:44:00
striker Lyle Taylor to join Swindon on a 12 month contract following his release from Bournemouth(5)(10)Good luck to him, the potential is there he just couldn't break into the first team here. With games under his belt he could prove a great signing.How you know this?Would be a good move for him if this was true, he wasnt amazing at bournemouth


10 Jun 2012 11:10:51
Possible that Tranmere are looking at a season long loan for West Ham's Freddie Sears to play along side Ben Burgess.
I heard that Ronnie Moore was impressed with Freddie when he was on loan at Colchester towards the end of last season.
Player has also spent loan periods at Scunny in league one but percentage of wages paid by Tranmere may be a problem(1)(7)His rejoining Colchester, anyway why would he join tranmere over colchester.Why not?Because Tranmere are a bigger club than ColchesterWhy not ? colchester no great shakesColchester are better than tranmere all day long, and he has already said colchester is my home and i belong here. soColchester are a bigger club than Tranmere. Colchester have a good relationship with West Ham. Sears has also said he would welcome another loan move to ColchesterTranmere are not a big club!
Sears told a mate of mine who works at a golf course Freddie played at whilst at colchester last season that he wanted to come back for 'at least another season'In what way are colchester a bigger club ??Tranmere aren't a big club but we are bigger than Colchester. We have 2 massive clubs to contend with and who u do??? Wasnt it ur chairman who said he's gonna have to stop plowing money into ur budget? Come back when u live within ur means and see who u will sign thenColchester how can you say your a bigger team than tranmere? Ever bin to a domestic league cup final? Whose bothered about sears he's obviously rubbish otherwise he'd be goin to a championship side not done league one team with ' a good relationship ' with west ham! Tranmere will finish higher than Colchester!!If colchester are a bigger club than tranmere how is it they can barely attract 3,500 fans which is poorer than tranmere and we`ve got liverool & everton as close neighboursColchester Honours List:
Football League Trophy Runner-up 96-97.
FA Trophy 91-92.
League One runners up 05-06.

Tranmere Honours List:
League Cup Runners-up 99-00.
Football League Trophy Winners 89-90.
(runners up 90-91).
Div 1 - Now Championship - playoffs 92-93, 93-94, 94-95.
FA Cup Quarter Final 99-00, 00-01, 03-04.

Nuff Said!!Colchesters highest league finish, 10th in 2nd tier - lower than tranmere's. year founded 1937 -younger than tranmere. ground capacity 10,084 - smaller than tranmere's. no particularly notable former players in comparison to one of enlish footballs greatest strikers dixie deanWhat do you mean Colchester have no other teams to compete with. Try competing with all the London clubs, Ipswich and Norwich!How does a quarter final get onto an honours list?!
Also colchester won the conference in 92 alongside winning the f a trophy, won the playoffs in 98 and the watney cup back in the 70's after beating the all conquering Leeds side gained qualification for the tournamentThe watney cup? Watney the hell was that never heard of that an fa trophy? That's for Sunday league teams isn it or really poor lower league teams! An that's all Colchester have ever been. Good luck next season with teddy sears the goal machine..........not! Trfc82Won the conference in 92? Well done!
In the mean time Tranmere have been in the football league since 1921!Tranmere are a lot better than colchester and thats from a huddersfield fan!Tranmere are by far the better team. (charlton fan) {Ed003's Note - How mant teams do you support ? you was a Huddersfield fan a moment ago }How does the Watney cup get onto an honours list?
the FA cup is a historical trophy, the watney cup was a pre-season tournament that ran for 4 seasons and then finished!

only had 4 teams in it as well !!This is suppose to be a rumour site not a lets slag each others team siteOnly 4 teams in it but Colchester won wouldn't be on the honours list if they were the 3rd losers...

I also see that just reaching the playoffs seems to count as an honour for Tranmere; Colchester don't include this honour on their list but have also managed this! Quite a feat for a Sunday league side that beat you 4-2.4 2spanking prenton park dump weston homes england venue colchester no money chairman just paid 4 million for training ground and 1million into academy which is one of the best in league 1 and how long have tranmere spent in bottom of league 1 now every year ur in relegation fight sack hire ronnie moore sack hire les parry dont seem to recall tranmere beating col u muchThis thread ig getting rather borng now {Ed003's Note - I thought the same thing}Freddy sears will be at a championship club next season the only reason he was in L1 last season was cos west ham Were in the championship and wouldnt loan him to a rival

Reading have targeted Highly Rated Burnley Midfielder Marvin Bartley and are Ready to make a 500,000 bid(9)(7)He must be a world beater to cost all of that!
Why would Burnley sell a highly rated player when they are about to receive the best part of £7m for Rodriguez?Bartley is not highly rated at burnley, I don't think he could hack it at the top level.He's not that good. Someone's made this up because the lad was born in Reading... try harder.

Notts County to sell Alan Judge to Ipswich next week for 650,000 and use the money to bring in Jonathon Forte for 150,000 and Lloyd Sam on a free(money used on his wages)

Also Liddle,Grella and Bruce in on Monday

Although im sad Judgey is leaving we will have a better squad next year(7)(7)Notts turned down a £1million bid for Judge alreadyHope u enjoy liddle from hartlepool he was carried all last season by 35year old paul murrayWho did they refuse £1million from then?No chance we would sell Judge that cheapI Spoke to Ray Trew and he told me that we had turned down a £1million offer for Judge, But wouldnt say who from ( possibly leicester )When we have rejected bigger Offers than
650k and value him higher than a million
Why would we sell for 650k - load of crap
Judge not for sale unless silly offerTake it no chance of getting freeman
That lad is classShowumni and Dean Leacock are the players to signThey wouldnt sell him to anyone for that price - theyre holding out for at least 1million
UTTER BSThe rest i agree with thoughJudge will go. County have signed a replacement due to be revealed next weekLiecster made bid for judge the other day 1.5m havnt replied yetI think if this was true then Notts County would have accepted the offer by now from Leicester.

Swansea to approach Burnley for Eddie Howe to become new Swansea manager although the 1.5M compensation may put them off(9)(19)Very good young manager would play in the same style as rodgers didWould be a great choice but would he want to risk the reputation he is building? Brendan has left big shoes to fill and I think Swansea would struggle to match last season even with Jose mourinho at the healmBrendan suited nicely i must say but why are we still hearing brendan this , brendan that... IMO I think Slimey Brendan had it easy as we (swans) were already playing the passing game under one Roberto Martinez who i must admit is the one that saturated our team with a bit of spanish glitz that has stayed and progressed therefore I dont think there are any shoes to fill just a quality team needing a manager and if we get the right one we wont just emulate last year, we should sign a few players and progress which is what it is all about... WE ARE A CLUB and the manager is just one person.. a powerful one all be it but its a club game and Swansea are a great CLUB! Tomo...IMO I think Slimey Brendan had it easy as we (swans) were already playing the passing game under one Roberto Martinez who i must admit is the one that saturated our team with a bit of spanish glitz that has stayed and progressed therefore I dont think there are any shoes to fill just a quality team needing a manager and if we get the right one we wont just emulate last year, we should sign a few players and progress which is what it is all about...

About 400k as he is on the last year of his contract.
But if the deal falls through Howe will turn his attention
To Sam vokes for 750k.(7)(9)If youre going to make up a rumour, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do some research before you make things up...his transfer was around £1m to Bristol City on a 3year + 1 year option contract......Try looking up details on Wikipedia, base your rumour on real info & then people wont think youre a 12 year old playing fifa12......come on, it's easy if you have an IQ bigger than your age or shoe size {Ed001's Note - I would suggest finding a reliable source, with real info, rather than looking on Wiki, which is mostly messed about with by kids with no real info.}Ye 400k we paid 800k of course we will sell him for that muppetThe fee will be £1m

Neither will get him.'Evans doesn't want to be beat by Crawley'

This a childish comment to put. Do you really think a grown man who is manager of a professional football club would keep upping the price simply 'not to get beat' by his former employer? {Ed003's Note -It should not have been posted,sorry}

Nottingham Forest defender Luke Chambers is currently in contract talks with Blackpool, Milwall, and Huddersfield. My sources had lead me to believe that Blackpool are in pole position for Chambers.

Chris Gunter looks set to stay at Forest for the time being with Reading not willing to offer the £3m that the Reds want. Swansea have also made an enquiry in to the talented right back but have made no formal offer.

Matt Derbyshire could be leaving the city ground this summer with a laon move to Bristol City in the pipeline. The loan deal thats currently being discussed would take Derbyshire to Bristol until January.

Jonathan Greening is a target for Middlesbrough. Tony Mowbray would like to bring in the experienced central midfielder to replace the out going Barry Robson.(5)(9)We have already replaced robbo with leadbitter, greening is to old now!The people today said we're after Chambers (derby)What is matter with everybody we have just been promoted to the Championship why would he drop down a division get a life

Swansea are enquiring about the recently retired
Arsenal number 2 pat rice. They see this as a great
Move as rice is extremely experienced from his time
Under arsene wenger and would cost nothing in compensation. The job is to persuade him to come out of retirement for a crack at managing in premier league(3)(18)Never ever gonna happen!

Kevin MacDonald is believed to be in the frame to succeed Paulo Sergio at Hearts. His experience at Vulla working with the younger players is seen as a valuable asset and Hearts believe he will see the job as a great opportunity to prove himself as a manager in his own right, having only
managed on a caretaker basis previously.(7)(3)Good luck to him if this is trueNo way,if they couldnt pay sergio a decent wage,how are they going to get him,

Rumour in the Burnly camp that Eddie wants the money asap from southampton and will get it as soon as Jay signs - 3 players that Eddie is desperate to bring in and doesn't want to loose out - been rumoured that a player is arriving as part of the dal(6)(6)Correct, Richard Chaplow is going the other way.Incorrect, richard chaplow has publicly stated that he is not leaving, so if burnley are signing a player from saints then it will be as part of a different deal rather than as a part of the rodriguez dealHeard somewhere that J Rod wants around 55k a week might be rubbish thoughNo he isnt, he's said he wants to stay at SFC for a very long timeIt wont be chaplowHowe has been promised £10mil to spend to keep him out of swanseas clutches

Derby want nicky Maynard and Sam baldock on season long loans from west ham utd. Nigel cough believes these two strikers would form a good attacking partnership at derby aling with other strikers including Johnny Russell if he signs, Mason bennett, Callum ball, Nathan Tyson. It would also fill the boots of Theo Robinson, Steven Davies and Chris maguire who are all linked with other clubs and are set for an exit.(3)(16)We are attempting to buy Maynard not loan we dont want Baldock.
Johnny Russell bids have been made
Callum ball is going on loan
Bennett will play only saturday home games
Tyson will play cover for Daniel Powell,
Jamie ward and Michael Jacobs.
Theo Robinson is Staying and he said he would relish having more strikers as he feels it would give him more desire to
score 20+ goals that he said in public he will score.

Michael Jacobs
Nicky Maynard
Johnny Russell
Daniel Powell
Krystian Pearce
Paul Dixon
Andrew Tutte.

Confirmed by Andy Garner these are Nigels
Targets.Why would Bennett only play Saturday home games? He'll be leaving school this summer...As a derby fan i think its funny how we had to play a 15 year old!Bennett is in yr 10 he is going into yr 11 next year hes only 15 not 16


10 Jun 2012 07:07:26
Izale McLeod to be unvieled as a Carlisle united players in the next few days as the club sign him on a free transfer from Barnet after his release. McLeod will be a like for like replacement for Francois Zoko who will be announced as Charlton player next week.(4)(18)I thought mcleod has already signed for portsmouth?Francois Zoko, no thanks.Both of these are true. finally a realistic charlton fanBoth of these are true. finally a realistic Carlisle fanZoko isnt true!Hope this is true, I'd prefer McLeod over Cadamarteri.

QPR are rumoured to be interested in former Chelsea youngster Gokhan Tore.

ex Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is set to buy two of his former club players.

Marc Pugh (500k)
Shaun Cooper (120k)
They also set to appoint Cherries legend Steve Fletcher as first team coach.

In the deal would also see defender Clarke Carlise join Bournemouth in a player coach role.(2)(13)Carlisle is a free agent so why would he part of any deal?120k for coops?? Behave, he's just signed a new contract. Add another 600k and your somewhere nearOne was meant to be josh carmichael but isaw him last week on crutches and he will be out for12 weeks.Rubbish maybe Pugh next season but Steve fletcher isn't going nowhere he family in Bournemouth and if he was going to do anything other than play he stated he considering a ambassador role at afcb in the futureDoubt all of these transfers will happenYeah I can see fletcher doing that, most people like to retire then move from a seaside town on the south coast, small bungalow by the sea to somewhere up north..... Ummmmmmm..........Or is that the other way round?


10 Jun 2012 01:59:25
Oxford to announce the signing of Brentford right midfielder Sam Saunders.(7)(11)LOOOOL. nice dreamYeh can really see him dropin a division and oxford paying a big fee for himNow that is funny!!
Why would he sign for you....
Unless Uwe has sold him for good money?.
have you got any money?Doubt this is happening. We have little in funds to buy in and has been said by the Chairman and Manager that the squad as it stands is pretty much it for the new season. Maybe a signing her and there but thats it

Portsmouth will not be liquidated yet as The Football League can see how much progress we are making in selling players. Also this means there will be no more points deductions. Marko Futacs is expected to be on the move to palace soon, as well as Huseklepp to bran(5)(14)There most certainly will be more points deducted when you exit administration, and you havent made that much progress in selling at all..It's not up to the football league whether you are liquidated...Should be docked 20 points
for offering 2p in the
poundto creditors
taking the pi##
again like 2 years agoPortsmouth put on their site a while ago that The Football league would not issue any more points deductions due to the progress it's making.The FL have already said they won't receive a further points deduction and I know the 2p to the £1 to creditors is bad, but you wouldn't be complaining if it was your club in their position. And I know that if Reading were in this position I'd let anything happen to guarantee the survival of my club!Think you will find a few other clubs have paid just 1p in the pound when exiting Administration so stop all this nonsense ref wanting a 20 point deduction, you are obviously a Saints fan and one of the ignorant ones at that!Pompey will not be liquidated, will come out of Administyration within the next month and will not have a points deduction. The struggle will be in selling the high earners so as to begin the rebuild.Why 20 points for offering 2p? the fact is we will not get liquidated and we wont receive any further points deduction. live with itThere is still a chance of points being docked, thats a fact! Theres still a chance of liquidation, thats a fact!To the clueless person above, there is NO chance of points being docked/deducted. The Football League confirmed this

Ashley Hemmings (Wolverhampton)
Brian Smikle (Cheltenham)
Ian Craney (Accrington)
are being linked with moves to league one side Walsall

Richard Taundry has left Walsall after turning down his verbal contract offer at the league one side(8)(2)He has not left walsall. get your facts rightHe has left WalsallHe has left Walsall. He was released as a free agent along time ago but he was offered a verbal contract which he has rejected. He's even talked about it in an interview with a paper (walsall fan)


10 Jun 2012 01:17:09
Paolo Di Canio's first summer signing is to be Lee Novak from Huddersfield town.(8)(19)Would be a great signing but can't see this happeningHow you know?Novak had 17 goals and 12 assists last year, do you think the terriers are going to let a play like that go ...Behave!Why would he move to a league 1 club when his current club ( town ) are in the championship and is likely to play most games? It's a big lie!No chance,why would Novak go to Swindon in League one.Hmmmm pivotal role for Town in the Championship or back down to league one...Stupid rumour, why would he go back to L1 when he got promoted, he will feature in championship plans so not going anywhere


10 Jun 2012 00:29:21
Stockport lose interest in former player Liam Dickinson due to wage demand. Could now sign for Crewe, Shrewsbury or Port Vale(15)(2)Shrewsbury are talking to him we will wait and see i think his wages will be to highBury have approached the striker via his former manager at Woodley Sports.

Dickie has been linked with Bury previously but do not rule out an offer of a trial from both Barnsley and Scunthorpe.
Keith Hill and Sir Alan Knill are both known admirers of the unsettled Northerner.Dickenson believes himself to be at least L1 calibre (not) so he would not lower himself to re-join County. That said, understand Gannon is very interested in bringing in Matt Paterson from Southend who had a very successful loan last season. County.


10 Jun 2012 00:21:49
Kyle Bartley set to be loaned out to either charlton or Watford as they are both closer to north London than rangers and there is an uncertainty about rangers wanting him next season due to the owner fiasco(11)(6)I think he'd be a bench warmer at Watford. Even when Mariappa goes we still have Nosworthy and Taylor as our starting pair.Taylor is too old and slow, he's past it and i really hope that taylor wont start for us next season, as nosworthy was bought in to replace him!It wont be charltonStarter at rangers so why would he be a bench warmer for watford who need all the help they can get to survive^ They say that every year and we do just fine. Usually finish above these "big teams" who think they're something.Norworthy was not bought in to replace him. He was bought in becasue Taylor had a long term injury. Also Taylors been a rock at the back for a few years now so show a little respect.Nosworthy was brought in on loan whilst Taylor was injured! Then we were just happy with how good he was and managed to buy him. To be honest, after we actually bought him, he became quite accident prone... I'd like Bartley to join the club, because with the exceptions of Hodson and possibly Dickinson, we don't really have any young defenders that are worthy of even getting on the bench. And even those two are hardly will be charlton if anyone ad we have a deal from the jenkinson deal, like we have one for Liverpool and inter Milan too


10 Jun 2012 00:21:03
Bradford City set to sign someone on Monday, expected to be a striker.(10)(11)Who is itNunez .Ramon nunez?I have it on good authority that Nunez from Lds will sign in the next few daysAndy Gray

Radio suffolk says ipswich town would like to sign ex man u youngster olliver norwood.millwall are olso very intrested. But he would prefer london to suffolk. As he belives millwall will do better than town next season.(16)(21)Burnley are also interested and seeing its his hometown it seems very likely he will be going there.Isn,t ex Man U he got a new 12mth contract still Man U and got a selling price of 500kNorwood also believes in father xmas, and that your rumour is true.I would believe this not to be true as it has been confirmed that kenny is after west ham fledglings C Driver and D Potts to add some mettle to their squad as trotter is definatley on his way with ITFC getting a big sell on clause ,releasing little funds for millwall to use.No millwall are not interested


09 Jun 2012 22:49:10
Bristol City are close to capturing highly rated Liverpool youngster Suso on loan.(7)(24)Would be a very good signing for both clubs. He would provide great competition to Pearson and Woolford and maybe snatch a starting place. great young talent with very quick feet, can beat a player and also good in the air. For me he has it all!Haha. good in the air? hes 5,5 or 5,6 spanish playmaker not good in the air but got a brillant eye for pass. brillant technique alsoIf we get him theres no doubt he will get a starting place he's far better than Pearson and woolford


09 Jun 2012 22:46:15
Swansea to sign - giovanni and Jonathan dos santos as laudrup will be th next manager! also he will sign will sign his son, a Denmark under 21 international- Andreas laudrup(4)(23)


09 Jun 2012 22:25:50
So Huddersfield are linked with-
Sean Morrison (will happen)
Kyle Lafferty (seems legit)
Lee Peltier (will choose us over others)
stephen Quinn (possibly, not too sure)
Keith Andrews (BIG rumour)
Adam clayton (not too sure)
Iñigo Calderón (not too sure)
Grant McCann (not too sure)

Overall Town ideally need a CB, LM/RM, ST and a couple of CM box to box, playmakers...(10)(31)Don't really need a LM, we've got Danny Ward... Where we have struggled over the past two seasons is in CM, we need two really good CM's who will dictate play for usWe need this team next year:
Peltier Morrison Clarke Calderon
Hunt Andrews Clayton Ward
Rhodes. S. JacksonI cant believe we havent been linked with any Left Backs yet as this is the most important position that requires filling if you ask me. Ridehalgh good as a back up, Woods not good enough as first choice and not naturally left footed.Apparently pelts desperate to come back, defo morrinson, thought jackson would happen if lambert had stayed cant see it now, like to see clayton but actually think andrews is more likely. lafferty hopeful!
UTT!So practically a new team then? Very hopeful, but looks good on paper!Danny ward don't make me laugh hardly set
League 1 alight did he, so don't think he can
Cut it in championship, swop ward for
Laffety and that team looks good.You're all forgetting ward is only 21 and has europa league experience and prem, he's a good player, confidence was low last year, he's more suited to championship, not hoof ball.
The reason i didn't put down simeon Jackson is due to him recently signing a new contract at Norwich, it does seem like Lafferty is pretty much a done deal but cant be announced as he's on his honeymoon, and seems like we're favourites for Andrews: Hopefully but likely starting XI-
Peltier, clarke, morrison, calderon
Hunt, quinn, andrews, ward
Rhodes, Lafferty
Bench-Bennett, woods, t.clarke, robinson, gobern, novak, lee (back to 7 subs this season...)Team i would like to see :
hunt, andrews,clayton, jennings
rhodes, austin

subs: lafferty, novak, bennett, leadbetter, t clarke, woods,ward

i did like not think haha but should look to bring jennings on loan just the experience gained at bayern training ground would be enough gor next year on loan!
UTT!Correct me if I am wrong but didn't ward cost nearly a £1 million. At that price he should be able to play in north east counties. More suited to championship never heard such rubbish. Yes I am a town fan. JohnYour not favourites for andrews charlton are, we finished 20 points ahead of you and are a better club with more money to spend. All of your eggs are in one basket with rhodes tbhHe is more suited to championship... League 1-hoof ball
championship-Passing football, besides with Rhodes hopefully staying and the tall Lafferty hopefully joining we'll defo need another winger with ward to whip the ball in...League 1 hoof ball maybe but town don't play that way so he should of been good last season and he wasn't, would rather see Roberts there when he is fully fit, Roberts 1st touch a different class. JohnNa, grayson didnt have enough time to get them playing how he wanted, this season-pass and move, wards left foot is unbelievable, right isn't half bad either


09 Jun 2012 22:12:45
Eddie Howe and swansea will have to accept an agreement with burnley not to take burnleys star players once he switches clubs. Deal still far from done though as the swans are baulking at burnleys near £2million compo demands. (Howe still has 3 years on contract).(4)(33)Eddie Howe wouldn't come to Swansea, he's not good enough for Swansea. And we wouldn't pay that much for him anyway, rather get Laudrup for no compensation, and he's a better manager.Doesn't seem very legit, Liverpool payed near £4 million to Swansea for Rodgers. So £2 million of that money is very much affordable, but still I highly doubt Swansea will be interested in Howe, yes we play good football but Eddie Howe has not done anything worth being offered a job at a higher level.When you say deal is far from done. Have any talks taken place or have Swansea asked for permission to speak to him? Hardly any mention of Eddie in swansea we are all being kept in the dark as to whats going on.
As long as it's not Holloway. I know he has been brilliant for Blackpool. But I don't think he can balance a team between attack and defence. It's almost to entertaining. Don't know to much about Eddie Howe?Liverpool payed 7M for rodgers and his back room staff. Compensation wont be a problem when getting a new manager in.They payer 7m for Rodgers, but no backroom staff went with him3 staff went to Liverpool from Swansea with Brendan RodgersI believe long time jack colin pascoe walked?Up to 9 million in add ons for the 3 staff in total very happy wiv the money for the 3 long time jack pascoe is gutting

Doncaster set to sign Izale Mcleod after his release from Barnet also to sign Damien Reeves, Jake Speight, Grant McCann, Jon Parkin, Peter Clarke and Robert Atkinson (Fleetwood)(5)(18)I don't think Clarke will be leaving Huddersfield.It is true rovers will sigh all those playersIzale Mcleod has stated he wants to play for a team nearer his home - MK Dons were favourite as that is local to him, but more local teams now showing interest. So not sure where your source is with Doncaster, but its not going to happen....Why would clarke leave a club he loves and has just got promoted with? Stupid rumour!Jake speight wasn't good enmough for my team bradford city and we are in leaague 2.


09 Jun 2012 22:07:00
Bristol city Striker David Clarkeson to talk to Bristol rovers about possible transfer over coming weeks as he looks to get first team football and is interested in McGhee's ambitions with the club, A city fan who's close to the club told me this, aslong as he scores goals i don't mind :)(12)(8)Seeing as he isnt at Bristol City and a free transfer.Clarkson is a free agent and can talk to whom he likes. His contract at Bristol City has expired.Hasn't Clarkson been released by City?Watta fail.

Stalin Kerkar and David Healy are set for talks next week with Derek McInnes, the Bristol City manager, about possible transfers from Rangers.(12)(14)Yet to see any manager benefit from bringing in too many players from SPL. Middlesborough dived when Strachan last attempted it. McInnes should have learnt the mistake but it appears not. I fear for City this coming season. Cant see anything other than lower bottom half and end of his tenure.


09 Jun 2012 21:26:14
Watford have enquired about Reading striker Simon Church and left back Joseph Mills.

Reading are prepared to let Church leave but not before a new striker comes in. Jo Mills is available also when a new left back arrives.(18)(3)So Probgreknyak in and church out... PLLLLEEEEAAASSSEEI do hope this is true. heard a lot of rumours about this though. Have you got any evidence?Reading bought maxi from liverpool on a freeWe have not got maxi thats total BSHope mills doesn't leave. he is better defensively than harte.Like churchy to go on loan not completely leave, as much as everyone says hes rubbish, all he needs is first team football in champ to gain bring his confidence up but i mean the leeds away game as an example, that goal was quality and i think with a bit more confidence he could be a great player.Enough of the Maxi rumours. Go on the official Liverpool website, he has said he does not want to leave Liverpool.Owww no... Please no....


09 Jun 2012 21:20:46
Reading have lost interest in Notts Forest right back Chris Gunter, after the club rejected a £2.5m offer.

Forest have asked for £3m. Neither Reading or Swansea will meet it, with the defender a free transfer in 11 months time.

Reading have also submitted a £3.5m offer to Huddersfield for striker Jordan Rhodes. Reading central defender Sean Morrison, valued at £1.5m will join Huddersfield as part of the deal, bring the total of the move to £5m plus add-ons.(17)(22)Rhodes says hes staying,end of.think morrison will still be comingIt was only £2m that got offeredRodriguez only had 11 months left on his contract but it didn't stop soton (over)paying £7m for him. No transfers would ever happen if no one bought players with 1 year left on their contracts.Nicky Hammond will not let Morrison go to Huddersfield unless Rhodes is going the other way.

Milos krasic seen on 2 occasions at readings training ground over past few weeks. This comes from someone who works at reading. Glfyi also seen a couple of times at training ground before going away on holiday!(17)(20)As much as I wish this was true, I jus can't see it happening!As a reading fan i no this is BS but would be great :PReading have matched Swansea's offer and terms, but have only spoken to Gylfi's agent so far. They are happy with the contract BUT he wants to give Liverpool first refusal. If nothing comes of that then he is almost certainly returning to Reading as Anton Zingarevich's marque signing.

You have to feel for Swansea though. Two weeks ago everything was rosey. Now they're managerless and just lost the chance of signing a very good player.Krasic has already rejected Reading's advances.

Sigurdsson is a possible as above.Yeh but that's Swansea's fault. They announced the signing before it was complete and that annoyed Hoffenheim. Don't moan when you don't hear who Reading are signing until they've signed. We do business the right way.Gylfi has been at the Reading training ground a lot after he left and was also at the Cardiff (a) play off game and the play off final so I don't think the fact that he has visited a few weeks ago means he was there to sign a contract.


09 Jun 2012 21:04:11

Wycombe Wanderers:


Scott Donnelly: free (after being released from contract) - Swansea City

Gary Doherty: free - Charlton

Izale Mcleod: free - Barnet

Paul Hayes: Season long loan - Charlton

Chris Hackett: free - Milwall


Scott Rendell: Season long loan - Oxford United(2)(16)There is zero chance of Wycombe getting Hayes on loan for the season. He's going to a League 1 club on a permanent deal. The three clubs linked with him are Notts County, Swindon and Brentford.Well i'm pretty sure they'd both rather play for a championship club, then a league 1 oneDon't you mean Rory Donnelly.
And swans won't release him.
Only bought him last year as a future star.
A loan deal maybeHayes has been linked with swindon but they have distanced themselves from him this week, there appears to be no interest in him now.Hackett won't join you. He has had talks with two big league 1 side's. Sheffield United being one of them.No he means Scott Donnelly actually which is what ge said?There is a scott donnelly and rory donnelly for swansea, scott was on loan during 2011/2012 seasonNo chance, the club has no money. 1/2 players will be signed. I have been told they are from L1/l2 sides and one was released due to repetitive injuriesWycombe can't sign anyone at present; they are embargo'd due to not submitting any accounts for 2010/2011 and failling to submit a prospective playing budget for next seasonWe had no money before, whats changed?


09 Jun 2012 20:16:05
jon parkin will be unveiled as leyton orients third signing of the summer as he joins the os on a two year deal.(3)(15)We can only dream.More likely to get sam parkin....He wont join orient to far away from his home in yorkshireWho was the 2nd signing1st was Sawyer, 2nd was Griffiths, doubt we would get Parkin.Anthony Griffith was the second signing. Gary Sawyer was the first.If you're dreams don't extend past Parkin you're in trouble, he's fat & lazy & lacks any pace & has no skill & a poor scoring record.Peter kitchen will join the os on a two year deal after agreeing a fee with doncaster rovers.Parkin would join a long list of fat,lazy Orient strikers who doesn't score in fact he wouldn't even be the first called Parkin to fit that description.

As for signing Peter Kitchen what would he be worth these days? what a quality player he was {Ed003's Note - Parkin and kitchen in the same post :-) }Russell Slade is lining-up a shock return signing of Steve Dawson.
Dawson has failed to make an impact since joining Barnsley,and Slade is desperate to bring his former captain back to Brisbane Road. Dawson will replace Spring, who is joining Crewe.Jon parkin has signed for Fleetwood Town

Not saying this is definite but my friend is a physio and went to a course based on 'the southampton way' which was all about the training they do. She said that one of the examples they were showing was a medical for a multi million pound signing, which they had been doing in the last couple of days. So i would imagine this means it is Jay Rodriguez, but obviously nothing is definite and with interest from everton it may not go through.(8)(8)Yea he has gone for a medical but has not agreed terms yet, so a move to another club is still a possibility.Swansea have switched their attention to JR now that they have lost out on Sigurdsson.

He wont be going anywhere near Saints now.Misread that, I thought you said Psycho!Why would a player go for a medical if he hadn't agreed terms? But you are right that until paperwork is signed someone else may come in....we'll have to wait and see1. swansea havent lost out on getting sigurdson yet but there is a possibility that he will liverpool

2. where is your source that swansea are interested in jay rodriguez

3. swansea still dont have a manager so obliviously there not going to be making any bids for players until they get a new manager cracks me up how if swansea were interested in jay rodriguez that people think that suddenly he wont go anywhere near southampton so think before you say things like that because you obliviously dont know anything about football!I'm sure he would sign for a club without a manager-not. Can't see Swansea will be able to sign anyone until a manager is in place-and Saints will not wait that long.Still signing for Saints confirmed tomorrow.Swansea have lost their manager, about to get second season, shouldnt even be in the ENGLISH premier league, and wont get siggurdson. I doubt you'll deter him from joining Southampton. As for Everton, they don't have the money to rival a bid anyway, so that can be laughed off"He won't be going anywhere near saints now".
Look Swansea had one good season and hats off to them. But now Rodgers has gone you'll struggle to stay up next season. Saints are a far bigger club. JR may well not sign for saints but if thats the case he'll stay up north and join Everton or Newcastle. Trust me he won't be going anywhere near Swansea. Talk about ideas above your station!If this is true then the person taking this lecture can expect to lose their job pronto. Mr Cortese makes sure all transfer details are kept 'in house' and anyone leaking details will be out of the club within seconds of him hearing about it. The 'Southampton Way' is that all transfers in or out of the club are kept under wraps until the deal is done.

This suggested example given at a training course did not happen.Believe what you want. It was a lecture about how the physios at the club get the players ready for the games, and how it has all changed. They then moved on to talk about a POTENTIAL multi million signing but left it at that and gave no further details away. I doubt they thought telling a group of 30 physios who do not care about football, this tiny bit of info would do much.Did someone forget to tell him that Swansea were after him? Because he's just signed for SaintsWhy on earth would he have signed for Swansea over Southampton? It was nice while it lasted but sorry Swansea you were one season wonders.

Doncaster's injury prone midfielder Brian Stock to join Crawley for a nominal fee.(3)(11)


09 Jun 2012 19:54:26
Crystal Place have agreed a £400,000 fee from Jose Rodriguez of Castilla and is set to sign next week after a medical along with Marko Fuctas on a free from Portsmouth.
The club are also trying to hash out a deal for Wilfried Bony of Vitesse, the Ivory Coast forward is keen on a move to England and Crystal Palace could offer him a first team role as the club mount a challenge for promotion next season.(12)(10)Marko Futacs is under contract, so how would you get him on a free?What site does it say futacs will be joining palace ?Futacs will be released by pompey because they want players off the wage bill.
He will not be the last to go on a free transfer.Futacs is on contract though, so they can't let him go without paying off his contract and Pompey can't afford to do that! Really annoys me when people on here who know nothing about this stuff feel a need to comment...Actually he was one of the few players at pompey offered a contract at the end of the year!He's on like £1000 a week and is still under contract for the next year AND has been offered a new (longer) contract only a few weeks ago so why would we release him on a free?Because your in administration and have to slash the wages! Everyone will be up for saleRubbish rumour. Why would this Vitesse fella come to Palace when Bayern are after him? Where will we get the money from too? Stick to realistic gossip rather than the fantasy stuff!Did you not read that previous comment? we'd have to pay off his contract to release him, and we have no money to do so. Get your facts right next time

Burnley are to insist on a similar deal along with a compensation package too the one that Swansea had with liverpool to stop Eddie Howe taking star players such as Charlie Austin, Danny Ings and Marvin Bartley with him should he accept impending job offer(8)(4)Eddie howe is not a
premier league standard
if swansea appoint him
you ll be going down
he s not very goodHope you have your life savings on this as he is 16/1 for the job with M Laudrup 1/2 I know who I would be backing and its not your so called tip!Are u a rovers fan in disguise trying to wind us up.swansea wont go for eddie howe,he has done nothin yet at prem chance it happening.Eddie Howe is so far unproven in the championship. If Swansea take such a gamble on him expect to join Burnley in the championship next year. I don't want to see Howe go as I would love to see him build on the foundations of this young squad (ie Trippier, Austin, Bartley Stanislas, Lafferty, Ings, Fletcher etc) but I am not holding my breath! It would not be devastating to the club providing the board are forward thinking enough to have a contingency should he go. UTCEddie plays good football and is starting to build a good team at Burnley. He's a good future manager but he's not ready for the PL yet!

Port Vale interested in:
Lionel Ainsworth(Shrewsbury)
Karl Hawley(Notts County)
Ben Smith(Shrewsbury)
Jennison Myrie-Williams(Stevenage)
Liam Dickinson(Southend)
Dan Holman(Histon)

Also Stuart Tomlinson will turn down new deal, Joe Davis will sign new deal next week(13)(7)Have hawley if you want a player who can't scorePlease tell me how this is true when Vale are in admin?Liam dickinson doesn't play for southend.Some one on here can talk a bit of truth

same as i have told everyone on here

get your facts right 1st b4 you post anything thats untrue

"port vale" cannot sign anybody,apart from the players that are out of contract"
they can talk to other platers,but not sign them untill the football league have approved keith ryders offer/bid
so please stop these so called players that are signing or not signing,they can only talk to these players
full stop,end of storyDoubt vale could afford dickinson's wages if we couldn't!Vale are due to come out of Admin on the 22nd of June, we can still hold talks with players but not officially sign them, also Billy Paynter is returning.So he's facts may be right as southend released dickinsonNo chance of you getting billy Paynter! No chance you could afford his wagesNeither Smith or Ainsworth are Shrewsbury playersThey came from Shrewsbury. Just released. There are a lot of Smiths out there

West Ham in bid to sign Matias Fernandez from Sporting CP

Liverpool and Stoke also interested(7)(10)Westham have made 4.5m bid.He's worth more than £4.5m. Also, why would he join West Ham if Liverpool are interested?So he does not turn into charlie adam and sit on the bench every week.

Charlton expect to wrap up the signings of Anthony Wordsworth on 1-2 weeks, Sam Baldock in 3-4 weeks but it depends as West Ham, I can confirm, they have enquired about Chris Solly and we want cash for Solly as well as Baldock but it depends on whether West Ham mind it, Charlton have been linked with McGuire and Quinn of Sheffield Utd and we expect to sign at least one of these, most likely Quinn as Utd overrate McGuire's price tag as a few million, also Karleigh Osborne may sign he is interested, but it depends if Charlton have someone better lined up, and sources tell me that Kyle Bartley of Arsenal may join on a season long loan, he proved he could compete at Rangers which is about the same as the Championship, also both teams are in London so it would help, Chris Powell also may renew his interest in Hulk Hogan ;) of QPR as he proved he did well in the Championship with Bristol and impressed with good goals and assists for Charlton in January(8)(21)Not only is Maguire too expensive for you, he's also too good too. Expect him to go to a PL club.Ha Charlton are deluded there is no way in a million years Harry maguire will go to Carlton one because what's the point and two they can't afford him. And i'l eat my hat if Quinn goes either that's how sure I amIm sure both will go to teams in higher leagues than utd - so that does mean charlton ! enjoy league one ;)Stephen quinns on about 15k a week somehow I don't think charlton will match or beat thatHa Charlton are deluded there is no way in a million years Harry maguire will go to Carlton one because what's the point and two they can't afford him. And i'l eat my hat if Quinn goes either that's how sure I am

The point if McGuire went to us next season would be that he'd be playing in a higher division next year.It's not that charlton can't beat the wage budget it's that they don't want to go mad on wages until we establish ourselves in the championship then hopefully move higher but we could if we wanted toYour close to administration and YOUR IN LEAGUE 1!! If McGuire was wanted by a prem club something would of happened e.g a bid or enquiry or even just links but none of that has happened, he is no way a prem playerU's Manager John Ward stated the other day he has had no offers for Wordsworth so if charlton are going to wrap up the deal they will need to contact Cochester first.Considering we are paying 10-20k for a unnamed player, and neil warnock even said in an interview that that we are willing to pay a fortune for him, wages wise so sit down and enjoy league 1 next season, i'll have fun playing leeds, palace etc when you play orient, walsall etc!!!!!!!!Solly wont leave. he loves being at charlton, it would also be a kick in the teeth if he goes to west ham, east london rivals.Think wordsworth deal will happen as co u signed marcus bean and now have 6 centre midfielders'think' oh no IT HAS happened, it will be comfirmed on july 1st-8thTake a video when you eat your hat please!

anything.(10)(3)No deal until he returns from a 10 day holiday in Dubai. Only then will he decided who to sign for with League 1 still his preferred option but his former club have location on their side for the Kendal based player.It wouldn't be out of character for Thompson to give back-word to Bradford. Again.If he has agreed to sign for us, why would he talk to Morecambe?Being a mate of our gary's lets just say his fuel bill wont be that much!Bradford would only be a last option if nobody else comes in. Who in their right mind would want to play for Phil Parkinson.

1. The massive owls are 10x wealthy then Barnsley
2. Wednesday are massive so why would he want to go to Barnsley and play on a shed ( oak well )
3. Barnsley can't afford him at a high price.
Oh and don't be surprised if Wednesday do a swap deal o'Grady for butterfieldHe is going to sheff wedO'Grady for Butterfield? What planet are you on?Why do you have to be so insulting? A shed. There is
No secrets that you are a bigger club than us and yes you will have more money. Talk football pleaseWednesday may have big history, but haven't been 'massive' for 12 quiet!We will c who is south yorshires top team soon......Looks a strong possibility for the Reds. £400k was his value when he moved from Aberdeen to Derby. HillCroft have a reputation for improving players and if Maquire wants to make the step-up in class, Oakwell would be perfect, not a Yo-Yo team like the Wendys!Butterfield in talks with Wednesday, Chris O'Grady and Mike Jones are in talks to go to Oakwell.
Barnsley have also tried to get Beevers included in deal. All of these players have been on Hills target list in last year.Wednesday may be the top team in yorshire but Barnsley are definately the top team in Yorkshire! {Ed003's Note - So it's a draw,end of ...Brill }Only thing massive about wednesday is their debtWednesday not in debt lolThat massive debt that totals £0.

Apparently Chris Maguire to watford. How would watford fans feel?(6)(10)Im a derby fan and even though im not bothered hes leaving because he hardly played.Hed played 1 start 1 sub and scored 1.He has ability but you will be getting a very lazy player not during matches where he is probally one of the hardest workest but football isnt just match days but weeks of training and he
rarely joins in thinking hes above that.Decent player, would go well with all the other strikers we're supposed to be getting such as Helguson, Futacs & CollinsHave they had a bid accepted then? Chairman was interviewed on radio Sheffield and said negotiations are ongoing between derby and Wednesday for him. Never said Owt about a bid been accepted from anyone. So I think you talk bullHe won't be joining Watford. He's off to Sheff Weds and won't need to move homePlease no.... we don't need Derby's dead wood, we did that with Forest when we got Garner and he, like Maguire are very average.You could have said the same about craig ramage but he was awesome for watfordWouldn't mind any of these players maguire seemed decent at portsmouth, futacs was brilliant at portsmouth and colins is young and decent goalscorerNot sure he is up to such a big step up as that - better he goes to sheff wed me thinks where he will be more at home ability wise - can you see him being able to fit in with Sean Murray or Jonathan Hogg - he is just not in their leagueHim and deeney would destroyWatford a big step up? You having a laugh pal? Did you go up to prem this season? No did you get in play offs? No how again is Watford a big step up, midtable team and that's it, not really got ambition or fan base to be a step up.He wasn't playing for you though. It's a step up to first team football, not a step up to a considerably stronger team.I agree (above) Derby are not the team to beat anymore.. They haven't been since the 80s/90s

£20m+ is available for Norwich and Chris Hughton to spend in the summer - McNally

It is expected that he will buy Jordan Rhodes, Nathan Redmond, Curtis Davies, Henri Lansbury, Nathaniel Clyne, Nick Powell and Robert Snodrass.

So expect a record breaking summer Norwich Fans(16)(53)Thats why Lambert left only had 50p and a bag of crisp for players so stop dreamingThat's not why Lambert left he left to go to a 'bigger' clubLook at the bbc page... McNally reveals more funds than ever - 20+mVilla a bigger club? They might of been a few years ago! But not anymore. How much money do Villa have to spend this summer? They are already being very tight with money. That's why the have still not paid any compensation to Norwich( its going to a tribunial ) and they ain't got the money to get Culverhouse(Lamberts number 2). Norwich have up to 25 million to spend on players! Confirmed by McNally . Have some of that Villa fansMcNally is taking you lot for a ride what he says is just what he thinks you want to hear take my word your get about 7or8 mill max.Norwich will go down this year. They will probably be able to remain in Championship though despite loss of Lambert.Villa are a bigger club than Norwich..Fact! You will not sign majority of those players.Lambert left because Norwich wouldn't support him in the transfer market.

Shockingly weak rubbish from the OP.1 decent season doesn't mean for a big club...especially compared to Villa1Lambert is a top manager who no doubt will do well at Villa (can't really get much worse!). He has a track record of showing very little loyalty when a better offer comes along so Villa fans if he does well, think you may get 12 months service from him until a really big job comes up. Good luck to him but he is now part of our history. Who knows how much City have to spend but Chris Hughton will be well backed by the Norwich board. Looking forward to a very interesting summer. On the ball city!Im a norwich fan but jordan rhodes is most likely going to fulham.Even if we only have 7 or 8 million, it will be enough to add a bit of quality to an already decent squad. Villa on the other hand need a total overhaul which will need far more money than is being promised to . If you don,t get Culverhouse you will struggle.Not many CEOS would lie to a club where the fans are desperately loyal to the club itself, not any one individual member. odds on most of the people commenting, saying we're going down, are either; Ipswich, Swans, QPR, or Villa. have fun finishing below us.It annoys me when people say norwich dont have money
last year we spent 15mil, this yea we have even more since we finished 12th
davis is very likely but i doubt we will get the restSome people speak such rubbish on here McNally has been straight to the point ever since he has been here sounds like people need to zip it and just wait and see what happens.Getting fed up of seeing the same old thing on here and people saying were going back down i for one believe we will be safe this year with money to spend chris hughton wouldnt of taken the job on if there were no funds available top ten finish is definatley possible with adding to the squad the good times are here to stayAnd one more thing im a Norwich Fan and villa are a bigger club than ours we all cant keep thinking were bigger than them, we have only had 1 season back in the top tier how long have they done it for?? i dont blame lambert for going but he should of gone to a bigger club than villa but i wish him well i still think tho that this season will be a great one with more money to spend Chris Hughton will buy really good players to add to the squad we need to be in prem for a good few more years before we can think were bigger than anyone else NCFC till i dieSo they couldn't afford to give Holt a pay rise but will spend 20 million. Not sure who is the most deluded, Soton or Norwich fans. Norwich will be bottom 3 for sure.I like Norwich but lets be honest all the big names in English Football are the teams that have made big impacts teams like the top 10 at the moment and teams like Southampton and Aston Villa have always had a big part in the premier league. I have a lot of respect for you as a club but its simple you don't and want have 25 million plus to spend ever! you wont attract big names and you wont ever be in the top six with the way things are run in NCFC, your team is run like a business and its stupid because its holding your team back! Lambert left because him and your owner couldn't agree. Lambert want to aim higher than 13th but your club turned around and said we want to survive that all that matters, even if we are 17th! So good luck to you next season i hope you stay up, but you wont have a budget of 20 million or any higher than that because he didnt say the amount and it will probs be in the region of 15 million or 10 million. He only said biggest backing ever as a manger to keep you interested and its workedThe norwich board didnt trust lambert with the 12m transfer kitty thats the true figure
Lambert is a poor manager culverhouse the brainsNorwich COULD afford to give Holt a pay rise, but rejected an extra year extension on his contract due to them deeming him to be too old. If you read into the subject rather than posting utter rubbish you'd understand Norwich do have money to spend."So they couldn't afford to give Holt a pay rise but will spend 20 million. Not sure who is the most deluded, Soton or Norwich fans. Norwich will be bottom 3 for sure."
Norwich fans deluded? you apparently can't even read the news. Holt and his manager have stated it's because norwich wont EXTEND his contract by 1 year, because he is too old.Lambert will be without Culverhouse, Norwich City upwards and onwards :-)"My clubs got more to spend than your club", "My clubs bigger than your club" Come on guys thats playground stuff. Spending millions does not equal success, just a huge debt and years in the lower divisions paying it back for many good old fashioned tradional town/city teams. Giving in to one players demand to break a clubs wage cap is crazy, all the rest of the squad will then want theirs increased and you end up doubling the wage bill for the same players. Heres a simple solution to cutting every clubs wage bill, go back to 3 subs on the bench, that way thats 4 of the 7 players on the bench that every club can let go, why pay players just to sit on their backsides for 90 minutes. We all pay for these wages through our SKY Sports package and stupid price of a match ticket. No loyalty in football any more, its all about ££££££££££££
This years fixture list is starting to look like this...
Manchester United Mercenary 11 vs Aston Villa Mercenary 11
Everton Mercenary 11 vs Southampton Mercenary 11
Fulham Mercenary 11 vs QPR Mercenary 11
Norwich City Mercenary 11 vs WBA Mercenary 11

Raheem Sterling to Norwich on-loan for the season with Ryan Bertrand coming in on loan as well. Permanent signings will be: Redmond, Davies, Snodgrass, Rhodes, Clyne, Lansbury.(15)(30)Your having a laugh none of these will joinLook mate, Leeds fan here.. I really do believe Snoddy will go, just not this summer for a fee less than £6-7m. Norwich should wait until winter you will get him for half that, I reckon he will follow Lambert too.Bertrand will not leave on loan and of he does it'll be to Reading.Why would Rodgers let Raheem Sterling who is one our best youngsters go out on loan when he has the opportunity to work and improve him.Snodgrass is slow - would not want him to join us. If we spend most of our money on Davis and Redmond I would be happy.

Jacob Butterfield to newcastle on a free 600k compensation for Barnsley
Chris Dagnall free to Wycombe(8)(42)With that amount of players coming in
you wouldnt just have 2 going out.
As you wouldnt pay Heskeys and Vassells
wages just to put them on the benchWhat a load of rubbish.

I aint a Barnsley fan, but I know for a fact that they couldnt afford half of these.

Also you would be signing around 7-8 strikers if you did

Go back to playing footy managerI am aBarnsley fan but got to agree what a load of RubbishWe won't sign all these players I know but we could easily buy a fewSo your Playing a 1 1 8 formation next season then? Could be interestingHesky ... rather notForrester and saunders
.......hahI am a loyal Barnsley fan. This us rubbish. We still have very limited funds. I do trust hill to make the right signings.Daniel Bogdanovic free from Blackpool
Matt Hill free from Blackpool

Thank god for that just let us me know when you want them and i will give them a lift from BlackpoolWot crap iam a brentford fan sam saunders sighned 2trrs contract harryforrester we keppingAddison is playing for Blournemouth they won't sell himWhy will they sell Sam Saunders he has just signed a new contract and is one of our best players. And Harry Forrester has got one year left on his contract why get rid of him now?Addison has time left on his contract so won't be free.I heard derby are tryin to sell addison so wouldnt cost a lotYou won't get beavon. If he leaves he would go to a better team than barnsley

Who next for the mighty reds? Well i know this to be 100% right that williamson from sheff utd and madine from sheff wed are crossing south yorkshire to sign up for barnsley fc. I also know the reds are close to signing an ex barnsley player playing in the premiership. You heard it here first.(4)(23)Rubbish.Why would Madine go to Barnsley NOT EVEN
HALF SIZE OF MASSIVE OWLSWilliamson and madine arent good enough to wear a reds shirt !I can see Williamson coming for the higher league but we won't have a chance of attracting Madine. I think he'll go to a big champ club if Wendies sell himJust like the Cardiff chairman, he prefers wearing red!!!!!!!Madine going nowhere only transfers happening between us is butterfield coming to the MASSIVE and o'grady to youOn which planet are s.w a big club? Williamson will sign for barnsley, flicker in portugal holding talk with a couple of players. Etuhu signed. Madine is a possibility if the right fee is offered, and it wouldnt be a big fee for a striker only proven at league one level. Butterfield to sign a one year contract when he gets back. No contact been made from any club about himAnd you think Barnsley are bigger what crowds do you get again? You haven't git money to spend, your struggling to put cash up for o'grady and that's only 350,000 and madine is worth a lot more than that.Never said barnsley are bigger, what has attendence got to do with it. I do think its wrong to think that a club just comin from league 1 to say they're massive. O Grady is a rumour, madine is a rumour, the owl fan that thinks a butterfield for o grady swap is goin to happen is just an idiot. What i meant with madine before is, stranger things have happened in footballI font say were massive I say we are a big club though simple. You can't afford madine. How much you think he is worth? We got him for 800,000 or there abouts soe wouldn't go for less would he! If Dave Jones wants butterfield and we offer a decent contract to him why wouldn't he come? Mattock chose us over other established championship teams so that shows something doesn't it.We are certainly not bigger, one look at the average crowds puts that to bed, but we aren't delusional either, unlike are near neighbours!!!Why are we delusional? Optimistic yeah why shouldbt we be. Debt free for first time in over a decade and on the up. Feel good factor is back and we believe again! What's up wi that?Not very likely. both players do have a little ambition

Stoke have bid £5 million for Maiga.
However it will take around £7/8million.
to prise him from his current club.
This deal will run on until after the euros
and right up until the start of the season.

Pulis has drawn up a shortlist of 20 players
who stoke are looking at over the
window. Stoke are looking on bringing in
as many as 6 players if they can shift
some deadwood.(11)(7)6?! i REALLY hope this is trueI can see us signin maiga and gettin a good deal as he has alot of issues at sochaux n they want rid. can also see us spendin in excess of 20million agen. pulis wil twist coates's arm.Stoke were interested before and he is Pulis type striker who can play wide if need be.Doesn't matter which striker Stoke sign unless we buy a quality midfielder (and if Pulis plays him) he won't score the amount of goals we desperately need.

Coventry and Shrewsbury Town are chasing young West Brom striker Saido Berahino.(8)(5)Only in loan. He has a bright future at Albion because he is a good player or will become one.


09 Jun 2012 15:19:03
Derby have had a bid of £400,000 accepted for Wolves striker Sam Vokes. The Rams will start negotiations with the player next week. Derby are also currently in talks with both Michael Jacobs and Paul Dixon. My sources have lead me to believe that Jacobs will probably sign at the end of next week. With Dixon closer to signing for Bristol City.

Nigel Clough will be looking to spend £2m on a proven goal scorer. The Rmas boss will use the money he gets from the departures of Davies, Maguire and Bailey. Simon Cox is Clough's preferred man but if that deals a no go he has other targets that fit the bill.

On the departures side of things Davies is on the radar of Blackpool, the Seasiders look set to bid £1m during the up coming weeks. Sheffield Wednesday are also considering making a £1m bid for Maguire and Bailey.(12)(10)Davies and Bailey have had a 2.5 million bid from burnley accepted.

Maguire might stay.But Derby want
850,000 for him despite being seeing as not needed he is a young international
with alot of ability but Nigel thinks maguire
dosent want to stayOwls will not pay more than £350-400k for Maguire. Derby turned down £300k and £350k from Owls who might go up to £400k or more likely move onto next target. Doubt Owls want BaileyWe wont take less than 450k for him cus he cost thtCox and Vokes sound like they could be a good strike partnershipGood luck trying to get Oyston to spend £1million!

Jordan Rhodes will be a Norwich player by the end of the summer. He is set to join the canaries and link up with former team mate and good friend Anthony Pilkington afetr he has heard it is a fantastic club to develop and become a premier league player.(24)(24)Probably true hope he doesn't leave Hudds but would rather see him go to Norwich with Pilks than anywhere elseThis deal would make sense.the club could help him develope and he would get good 1st team experience...If he was to move, which he has said he's staying at Huddersfield, he would not join a side like Norwich. He would be going to a bigger club in the prem.
We've heard all the stupid rumours about JR and yours is another one. Also, where are Norwich going to get £8 million to get him?Lambert was a big fan dont know about hughton, plus can't guarantee pilks will be there for long let alone norwich who cant guarantee PL for next 3 years what if they go down! think rhodes will stay for 1 more year or til xmas if huddersfield not near play-offs then move on to bigger team... no disrespect! UTTWe have 20m+ to spendHe is not that tall not much pace, goals scored in a poor standard. 8million more like 2 half topsI think Jordan Rhodes can do betterWhy would Rhodes not come to us? We are not a big club but we are Premier League club so I,m sure he woul be attracted by the
Respect of joining us. We have great support nd fantastic facilities and, other than Chelsea, the only English team to beat BM in their own stadium. Those 12 year olds who are writing that we are a small club should reind a few years - we were a top 6 side for many years. Thownsend, watson, brucNo one is paying the £8M so called asking price for what is a 1st Div player with Potential !, but its still a gamble, don 't believe all the nonsense about £8M being quoted, he will be sold for around £3 + add on'sNorwich to get relegated nailed on pilks leaving for bigger club in prem and rhodes not going anywhere certainly not going to relegation side jog onLol thats old mate no one cares if you were a big club back in the early 90's truth is you staye in the premier league for 3 years was it went down and i don't think you came back up until 2005 which you went straight back down the same year then came up to the premier league again in 2011 No your not a big club the top 20 big clubs in the UK are
1 Man Utd
2 Liverpool
3 Arsenal

17 West Ham
18 Birmingham
19 Portsmouth
20 Blackburn
These clubs are bigger than you and have more history than you, your not even ranked in the top 20 your ranked in the top 30 so stop saying your a big club your notOr you have this list which is based on fans
1. Manchester United
2. Liverpool
3. Arsenal
4. Leeds United
5. Chelsea
6. Newcastle United
7. Manchester City
8. Spurs
9. Everton
10. Aston Villa

13. Sunderland
14. Notts Forest
15. Derby County
16. Southampton
17. Birmingham
18. Ipswich Town
19. WBA
20. Norwich CityWell that's complete bull norwich are the 12th most supported team in the country so get your facts right. Also how can you class Leeds and forest as big teams? If Norwich played half the teams on that list they would wipe the floor with them. From a Chelsea fan.What has this got to do with transfer rumours. The big club debate is a waste of time as it depends who you support.
A player has to take into account length of contract, wages as well as if he will be able to get into the team before moving.Why would a history be important, football is about the here and now. If that's the case relatively new clubs like Wigan would have no decent players and they do.

AFC Wimbledon have shown an interest in former Charlton defender Gary Doherty.

The 32-year-old centre-back is a free agent after being shown the door by the League One champions at the end of the season.

Source: Hounslow Chronicle(11)(4)Would be solid in defence, no doubt recommended by Jason euellJelly is more solid than dohertyIs he that badJelly is more solid than doherty
Harsh but true and funny.Yes he is that bad. The only thing I can say positive about him is he is pretty decent in the air. No pace and just makes error after error in key areas which usually lead to a goal. For your sake I hope you don't sign himHe was 32 a long time agoOh dear! Don't sign him Terry Brown!Arh! but the last two teams he played for won promotion! Even if he never played a lot he brings luck to the team that sign him.Wasted wagesArh! but the last two teams he played for won promotion! Even if he never played a lot he brings luck to the team that sign him.
When you say he played for us what you mean is that this season he was at home doing Irish dancing all by himself. I was closer to Charlton's 1st team than Doc was and I sit in row U!!

Andy Taylor mulling over offers from both Oldham & Tranmere(8)(2)He should go tranmere because he has been there beforeBetter than going oldham anywayHe has signed for OldhamHe has signed for Oldham hope this is true.No he has'nt signed for oldham we re-signed james wesolowski and dean bounzais and signed full back connor brown on a free after his release by sheff unitedAndy Taylor held talks with Oldham before the season even ended and was back at Latics last week but weather he signs or not i don't know, Rotherham also interested aswell.Oldham will announce the signing of andy taylor this week along with another BIG NAME signing to regain the fans faith. source - my twin works for the club.Big name signing :- Vassell ?????
Howard ?????"along with another BIG NAME"

Andy Taylor is not a BIG NAMEHave to laugh at BIG NAMES.

We don't have the budget to get players like Howard as he was on at least 10K at leicester.

Dickov won't say anything until a deal is done. Don't understand how people think they know whats happening at the club. Its a joke and utter rubbish.Andrei Kanchelskis has a big name, Is it him? lolOldham have no money like trfc so won't be making any "big name" signings

Reading ins and outs
Dame N'Doye 6M
Pogrebnyak Free
Mariappa 4M
Bridcutt 2M
Matt Philipps 4M
Manset 800K Shenghai
Church 2M Cardiff
Kanu 2M Watford or Middelsbourgh
D'ath loan Charlton(9)(21)How would Watford ever afford £2m for Kanu. Not that he's worth it anyway.Your sale prices have one thing in common - they are circa 5x reality - do you seriously think that Robson Kanu is worth £2m - i mean seriously - if anyone offers you £500k - wrap him up in cotton wool and drive hime slowly and carefully to the other club - same goes for that goal machine ChurchOkay fair enough this guys sales are a bit inflated but rash comments on the players. I rate Kanu, hes definitely worth holding on to until he develops a bit moreRobson-Kanu is probably worth 1m and I cant see us landing Pogrebynak. The others are possible though.How would watford get 2m from 4m from mariappa and chalme is a free if he's that right backHave you ever saw him play.he is worth the money.As above, watch him play then judge, he is still on the up and improving, I for one would like to see him at the club getting the odd game this season.I have watched him play and he's nothing special. Sure, some stupid teams will pay rip off prices for overrated players but Watford cannot afford that. We wouldn't spend £2m on a proven player as we can't afford it, yet alone spend it on someone who could very well be a flop for £500k yet alone £2m.

If we ever got £4m for Mariappa, it would go straight to paying off our debts or improvements.I'm a Cardiff City fan and despite what you think of Church we wouldn't pay 2mil for himN'doye to reading you have to be kidding me newcastle are sniffing around and have expressed interest for him to be a straight replacemnt for ba if he leaves. Copehagen are a much better team than reading so he's going nowhereThe last time watford payed over a million was for Nathan Elington, in 2007, and he was rubbish. We bought jobi mcanuff for 1. something mill that summer, so you think that we are magically going to pay £2mil for a rubbish strikerKeep kanu he is a quality player

yeovil close to signing joe mckee on a season long loan from burnley.(5)(9)I believe Burnley have not offered him a new deal so he is on a free transferWhy would we want to loan him, he is a free agent! released fro Burnley in April....Joe Mckee was released by Burnley at the end of last seasonJoe's been released from burnley so it will not be on loan

After losing out on Joe Mattock and Paul Dixon, Derby turn their attentions to Liverpool's Jack Robinson to fill the left-back position.(5)(7)We havent lost out on Dixon.We need to buy a left back not on loan and Robinson wouldnt leave liverpoolIf derby r going to get him permanently they will have to pay a big fee because he will become the future England fullback in a few years time and Liverpool would not want to sell him. But getting him on loan might be a possibility and has been talked about before.Loans aren't the way the Derby management want the club to go. The policy is to buy low and sell high, and so it is unlikely that a loan will be used in anything other than a last resort

Load of crap.Ytfc newcastle or cov not really a hard decision + he just signed a new 4 year dealNewcastle have bid 750k, so this is a load of crapThat one he's worth at least a million plus he's going newcastleNever he is worth alot more and wouldnt go to yeovil!!!Yeovil Town sorry you are a dreamer a player with a 4 year contract a player that Premier League Clubs are looking at: why on earth would he move to your tiny club? 50k try at least £1,000,000.Wait......... i swear Coventry are in the same league as Yeovil?? and you are calling us tin potYes But Coventry is a huge Club in English history While I only heard of Yeovil TodayBigirimana would never join yeovilE maybe Eastwood though cause hes not that goodNot tin pot just tiny with no history a tiny ground. We may be a mess financially but eventually it will be sorted one way or another. A player won't choice you over Coventry that's like saying Wigan are as big as Man Utd because there in the same league.

in a interview di canio said that swindon are intrested in andy williams ( who declined an offer from yeovil) and said that he hopes one day that andy williams will be a swindon player. Basically saying williams will sign on the 1st of july(12)(7)Williams?? I thought you lot were going for promotion?He scored 17 goals last season how is he not good ?!?!On behalf of yeovil fans he is very greedy and if he wasnt so greedy we could have had a lot more goals as a team and probably would have done better in the leagueWilliams scored goals in a weak
Team so will be a good signingI watched Andy Williams week in week out for the last 2 years and firstly I'd like to say that if it wasn't for his goals we would have got relegated. They literally kept us up! He had a fantastic season for us. Although, that said, he does need around 6-10 clear chances for everyone 1 he puts away. I'm not sorry to see him leave because it's his living and he wants to better himself. You can't argue with that. I don't think he will ever perform the same again though. He was a 1 season wonder in my opinion.

Mark Hughes is looking at the possibility of signing Manuel Fernandes as he looks to bulk up his midfield ahead of the following season. Fernandes is currently a free agent after Besiktas failed to pay his wages and his contract was mutually terminated.
Sunderland's Martin O'Neil is also thought to be interested in the midfielder but is also keen on Aston Villa Forward Gabriel Agbonlahor who played under O'Neil when he was in the Villa hot seat. Agbonlahor is a life long Villa fan so if a formal approach is made it will be interesting to see whether he will be tempted to join up with his former manager or remain at his childhood club.(10)(7)I'd say stay at Villa.
Soon MON will leave & Sunderland will be left with players wanting to leave.

There's even a pre-season friendly arranged between both clubs as part of the deal.Freindly has nothing to do with itThe freindly has nothing to do with any Collins move.

MK Dons are in talks with Shrewsbury Town left back Matt Richards.(8)(9)Not a chance of Richards joining franchise fc. He swept the boards at our player of season awards, loves the area & has another year to run on his contract. Besides, he's been playing in midfield for the last few years.He's not a left backLeft back? Richards? Hmmm, I know this is a rumour website but even this rumour is quite shockingly bad!Midfielder or left back, it doesn't matter as it's not a position we're looking to fill.He was a Left Back originally but is just as strong in midfield now. He has played in midfield since joining us except against Oxford where he played LB and scored a last minute 35/40 yarder!

Judging by his twitter I would say he is unlikely to make a move at the moment, but i could be wrong. We could do with keeping him to be honest, he is by far our strongest and most experienced playerHes still under contract with shrewsbury and pretty sure he wouldn't go to tinpot clubWe are not looking for LB we have Lewington and ChicksenThis is complete rubbish. Why would we get rid of him when we only have 2 senior central midfielders, apart from woods.

Everton about to bid for Jay Rod according to Daily Mirror. Although they will be offering less it is likely Jay would prefer to stay in the North West. Up to BFC they accept less to keep Jay happy or reject and force hm down south? Interesting one...and to all you saints fans....we told you not to count your chickens just yet!(12)(26)I think you will find it states Everton have to sell before they bid anything! If he wants to hang around and wait for that to happen then thats upto him isnt it! Not exactly the end of the world for Saints as they can move onto their next target. Do you really think Burnley would want to accept less for him anyway?Don't think there is any substance to this story. Everton have to sell before they can buy. And Piennar is their priority signing.Firstly,Why would Burnley accept a lower price
For their star player! They wouldn't!
Secondly if JRod is not happy moving to Southampton Nigel Adkins wouldn't sign him!
No point having players that aren't happy!
Thirdly if He doesn't come saints, then it will be his loss! But He will !!
The jealous people on this site who keep knocking saints fans. Why don't you just worry about your own club. Unless your that worried about little ole Southampton Fc.I think you will find Burnley have already accepted the fee from Saints, so hardly likely they will say, "oh, yes, we will accept less from Everton".

You can't afford him, so give it up.We havent counted our chickens, if he doesn't sin then we will move on to some else end offWhy are people so worried about us saints fans talking about who or what players we are intrested in ?if jay rod says no to us i wont be losing any sleep as most saints fans are 50-50 about him anyway if he signs im sure he will be a big successNo chanceEverton need to sell before they buy saints deal all but done Everton more likely to get relegated next season so he's 90 % certain to choose southampton.Done deal for saints not worth 7 million thoughEven if Southampton & Burnley agree the fee does not mean they can force him to sisn, so if he plays hardball because he wants to stay in the north, then its just possible they will have to sell for less.'Everton more likely to get relegated next season', dream on...A well established Premier League side consistently finishing in the top of the league. I think someone's deluded!Its irrelevant now anyway as he has agreed to sign with SaintsHaha whoever that is saying everton more likely to be relegated clearly hasnt got a clue

lets do it!(16)(5)Everton after him set for late bidIt's not £7M strait off. Nearer £5M rising to £7M for goals/appearancesHis choice who he wants to play for but saints are on the up and i hear there could be 3-4 more signings so mid table next season will be a great finishEverton can only bid when they sell someone! They have declared their interest in hope that it makes Jay think a bit. They are not in a position to bid anything yet.

Would ANYBODY move to East London as well.......I believe potential council house owners are being sent to Syria as it's safer and less chance of being shot!The Estate Agent rumours are always the best :-)

Brian McDermott will be presented with his Reading FC transfer budget next week, it is thought to be in the region of 15 million. I would imagine this money to be spent on:

Pavel Pogrebnyak - Free Agent (Anton being Russian makes me feel more confident regarding this rumour - also Nick Hammond LOVES a bargain)
Adrian Mariappa - Watford (Thought to be completed when he returns from International Duty)
Liam Bridcutt - Brighton (We will beat Aston Villa to his signature for 2 million)
Matthieu Chalme - Bordeux (We need a RB so this rumour looks strong)

Brian McDermott will not buy any players until Monday (at the earliest), as that's when Anton will let him know how much he can spend. This is a big window for Reading, but Nick Hammond has already said he will not spend like QPR and Manchester City, but like Norwich and Swansea who both spent around 10-13 million in their first season in the top flight.(14)(20)You're get none of them just a small clubChalme would be a great signing, really a class player, however is he used to playing for clubs battling for Europe spots!? I hope he comes!Is it just me who thinks its impressive that you know the budget and buys of Reading before the owner has told the manager what he can spend? ;-)How big is readings fan base says it all to meYou will need to spend more to get Bridcutt! Hope you learn from QPR who tried to save money and ended up spending a fortune to avoid the drop (just!). Reading should do well this season and finish about halfway.Agreed. Complete BSBridport will not go to reading factCan i ask why you are postin false statments about adrian mariappa deal being done. The watford observer have just printed in the paper that watford rejected 2million + add ons and do not no if reading will put in a second improved bid!Why ever would pavel sign for you when he can get first team football at fulham a much bigger, LONDON, which can prove important club who are not going to get relegated^^^^ I dont think you have to be a big club to get a watford player, a brighton player, an ex fulham or an average french teams player ;)People will be shocked about reading's fan base ... They will easily sell out there 38000 allocation when completedOur small club is in the prem, brill isnt itY cant we get those players? we r probably most under-rated team in england because we arent "a big team from a city". zingarevichs takeover has already attracted players so y cant we get the likes of Pogrebnyak?Don't think QPR tried to do it on the cheap the club was involved in a takeover and the result was a real lack of investment by the former owners. If i remember rightly they were linked with a load of players and were rumoured to have agreed terms with Danny Graham only for all moves to be vetoed. I rekon reading will struggle if they don't get things done quickly because their 1st choice target maybe a bigger clubs 2nd choice. I think this is where norwich and swansea done very well in comparision to QPRI really love the 'your just a small club with no fans comment' .. When was football won by the fans? Two promotions and four play off appearances in recent years, ever increasingly successfully academy and large investment off the pitch. So this big club we must become before we actually get acknowledged can't be far away.. But then I guess we'll have brought the success right?Unless you are Man City, Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea followed by Liverpool and Newcastle every club is a small club! Reading is no different to any other club, all are trying their best to improve, some are improving faster than others. Reading will continue to over perform and will make some decent signings but they'll never be a big club although they will hold their own and compete.I find it amusing how people are ripping Reading for being a small club. At least we are well run and are not in debt.The Mariappa deal was done weeks ago. The hold up is due to him being away on international duty. Watford are releasing stories saying they have rejected the bids to appease their fans. This has been agreed with Reading."zingarevichs takeover has already attracted players so y cant we get the likes of Pogrebnyak?"...... Who have you attracted then? You have only signed Gareth McCleary. Reading are going to find it hard to sign big names.I don't want Bridcutt. He was rubbish from what I saw of him. Not good enough for our so called 'small club'. I'd rather sign Keith Andrews who is an attacking midfielderI love the fact that reading is disregarded by many>we have proven our team and fghting spirit.Look at the stats,the best in any division anywhere. There just might be a surorise as to who sighns for us if not wee will do what we have as a proper TEAM no prima donnas/Major problem with this is your figures. at end of last summers transfer window Swansea had spent 9m approx, Norwich 6.8m approx and QPR 10.1m approx so when you say swansea and norwich spent 10-13m thats incorrect. then you also go on to hint at QPR spending vast amounts unwisely when they only spent 1.1m more than swansea. And lets not forget QPR stayed up at the end of it all so whatever they spend was worth it.Good luck to Reading - good club with true supporters. Would love to see one of the so called 'big club' go down. From a Norwich fanI am a Brighton fan and how can you call reading a small club there have reached the premier league and not for the first time I would love brighton to reach the premier league and see how many people call us a small club and then we could just turn around and say what league are we in we ain't that small are we good luck to reading this season I think you will finish mid table and we will join you there next seasonI'm interested - 'The Mariappa deal was done weeks ago. The hold up is due to him being away on international duty. Watford are releasing stories saying they have rejected the bids to appease their fans.' How do you know this?The reason weve only got mccleary is because the transfer window isn't even open yet and brian hasnt been given his transfer funds. Mccleary was a free transfer"Is it just me who thinks its impressive that you know the budget and buys of Reading before the owner has told the manager what he can spend? ;-)"

Not really, any ITK Reading fan knows it will be c. £15mSeriously! Who cares if Reading are a small club! I'm a Norwich fan, and I think it's brilliant that we are a small club, it makes it feel so much better. In comparison, to a team like Manchester United who win title after title, and it isn't really an achievement, while for teams like Norwich, Swansea, Wigan and Reading it will be.Zingarevichs takeover has caused following:
Jason Roberts to drop a division
Brian McDermott to stay at Reading
Jimmy Kebe to sign a new contract against all the odds...We already know Mapps is going...
Anyone who wins our player of the season award always leaves straight after...
Shame Loach didn't win it...That Norwich fan knows what he's on about.

Carragher wouldn't leave thoughJamie Carragher is Liverpool through and through mate. He will finish his career with the redsCarragher wont go but the likes of agger will go to real and liverpool will have to stay with the likes of cotes carra and skrtel, we may bring in aly scissokho, the only player i want is affeley or dempsey but affelay seems like he's staying and we need a striker like lawandolski, doumbia or dzeko,
would like a team like this

The Rams have also said talks are on going with Sheffield Wednesday for Forward Chris Maguire.(8)(3)Ha ha?There was never a first bid you are

where they said you are lining up a 1 million bid.I never laughed so much we payed 1.1 million for him from barnsley
last summer.Why would we loose 100k on
our most important player/captian.Hes valued at 3.5 million + and whether offered 7 million.We dont need to sell and want to sell.You have already bought Steve davies and James BaileyWe did not actually pay 1.1 million for him we paid 750,000.Burnley aint bought no one yet .....I'm a derby fan and and there have been 2 bids. it was in the official derby telegraph. we will sell at the asking price but I think that is 3 million.To the guy above, it says we have knocked back a second bid all over the internet so maybe get your own sources before commenting.SSN and thisisderbyshire states we've rejected 2 bids. Mate you need to chill, im a Derby fan and Shackells off. You're the deluded oneAlso a Ram, Shackell is deffo going Derby will accept Burnleys 3rd offer which has been placed!!

southampton looking at signing rob green according to daily star(8)(24)Yeah this has been in a few papers, but I cant see it myself. Davis is the No 1 keeper and I would have thought it would be best to buy a young keeper...i.e Butland.Why would we want Rob Green when we have Kelvin Davis!? Kevlin Davis is very experienced and has a couple of good years in him still. Therefore, we need someone young, for the future. e.g: Butland.They probs want three keepers :L as we only have oneHope So .Good keeper if we get him can't see us paying them wages tho all speclation atm we shall see i guess.Get bultand more potential and a better replacement for davisOne month ago no one had heard of Butland, sounds a good keeper, His young and English, I think it would be better going for him as a back up to Davies even pushing for the number one spot. I understand that there are a few teams looking at him and that he wants first team football.

Ipswich Town
Young French midfielder close to joining Ipswich Town

By Dave Gooderham
Friday, June 8, 2012

PAUL Jewell is closing in on his second signing of the summer – thanks to departing defender Ibrahima Sonko.

Comments Email Print Got a story?
Young French-Guinean midfielder Cheick Kourouma is set to follow in the footsteps of fellow youngster Elliott Hewitt and sign for the Blues, subject to a medical.

Kourouma, 19, currently with Genoa Under-20s, impressed Jewell during a trial at the end of the season and is set to put pen to paper in the next week or two.

The deal was struck up thanks in part to Sonko who recommended a number of African players to the Ipswich manager before he was told he would not be offered a new deal.

Kourouma, described as a powerful box-to-box midfielder, was the first to visit Suffolk for a trial but not the last – with another of Sonko's tip-offs expected to try and impress the Blues boss over the summer.

A source close to the defender said: "Sonks loved Ipswich and he was sad to leave. Before he was told the news, he wanted to offer Chiek to Paul Jewell as he thought he could be a good player for Ipswich."

Kourouma was on the books of the Sochauex academy in France before moving to Italy, but he is being released by the cash-strapped Serie A club allowing him to join Ipswich for a nominal fee.

While his inexperience might mean he will initially have to be content with a place on the fringes of Jewell's first team, the Ipswich manager saw enough during the short trial to offer him a deal.

He continues Jewell's pledge to sign "young and hungry" players following the acquisition of Hewitt – on the day of his 18th birthday – last month.

While most fans will welcome another promising youngster signing for Town, they will now be hoping Jewell adds some more steel to the spine of his team.

A first-choice goalkeeper, two centre-backs, at least one midfielder and another striker all remain priorities but the Town boss this week warned fans to remain patient.

The manager said: "Supporters always want to see new faces arriving and I'm as impatient as anyone, more so, in trying to bring players here.

"Signing players is a complicated business. Yes, in an ideal world I'd like to have all our players in place by the time we return to pre-season training in July but we don't live in an ideal world."

One man who seems unlikely to be coming is QPR keeper Paddy Kenny who is close to leaving the Premier League club.

The 34-year-old tweeted that he was "excited to get his future sorted" before quickly deleting the message from the social media website.

While we understand Jewell considered making the veteran stopper an offer, he has moved on to other targets.

Leeds United remains favourites to secure Kenny's signature.

Charlton may make a shock move to try and sign spurs out of contract players stiker louis saha and defender ryan nelsen. They are also considering giving a contract to reading midfielder brian howard. (reliable sources)(4)(31)Theres more chance of saha buying charlton than other way round!Here we go again- the next instalment of the big charlton signing - get real mate none of these players are coming to you.^ I like that comment!Not a cafc fan so leave itNo big names - just sensible players without the egos please.Whoever wrote this isn't a Charlton fan. If he was he would know that Powell is buying young and hungry players to build a team for the long term.Howard is rubbish, you'll go back down if you signed him"Howard is rubbish, you'll go back down if you signed him" We're not so it dont matter does it!

Southampton looking at Chris Baird who is considering his future at Fulham.(10)(14)No thanks. Can do better.No chance....No No NoWow! Is it really necessary to get so wound up about such a simple matter? A reaction like this will stop fans posting info when we really need the 'snippets' pouring in at this stage.No nooooooooooooooooooooooo no
richardson much better than bairdChris Baird was a great player when we had him before and far better thar Fraser, good signingAs a saints fan, ill admit richardson is a liability, and baird has his days! Certainly could do mpre of a job than richardson or butterfield defensively, however both of them have a hell of a cross when they want one!I hope he stays, but will only get limited chances - nice lad, reasonable player.You guys do know that Richardson has already stated that he will leave the club this summer and that 'I wish all the best to the player who will be brought in this summer' (was on his twitter account)Frazer Richardson does not have twitter, that account was fake, his name wasn't even spelt right on it FFS.

Derby county to complete the
signing of free transfers paul dixon
and Niall Mcginn on monday(8)(13)He has agreed to join Bristol city! Fact pre contract agreement done and dusted, he never even talked to derbyI thought Dixon was going to Bristol city? :)Prove it thats hes going to bristol because if you go on his twitter he is still
on holiday since he left Dundee united.So
no club can have talked him.He will choose Derby over Bristol not because of
this us being bigger club Nonsense.But
final Posistions last year and the club with the bigger future and better chance of premier league.There were only people
saying he was going to you because our
attention to joe mattock who didnt go
on holiday but he has now signed for
Sheffield Wednesday.So unless we have
another target which i doubt we will be
doing all we can to get him as we need a
Left back desperately.It all depends on
much you want nothing about manager being scottish.

kelvin etuhu today followed in the footsteps of stephen henderson,joel ward and jason pearce to leave portsmouth and go to another club, this club is the barnsley.(22)(3)Oh no, not 'the Barnsley'!!Better than a club going out of buisness pay up pompey pay up pompeyYes mate the barnsley you should be on your knees when mentioning the super reds and paying homageFunny when it's says in are local paper he signed a new dealDeffo signed on at barnsleyHe has a massive desire to stay a pompey since apps gave him a chance after his jail stint and is thus gratefull so has dedicated himself to our pompey cause :)He has never played for rochdale, is hill feeling okay?As a Pompey fan I have to say that Etuhu never impressed me. He might have done OK in Div 1 with us but personally, do not think he is up to the Championship, still good luck to him at Barnsley.Burst last guys bubble he played On loan at rochdale under non other than keith hill!In fact you are wrong etuhu did play for rochdale four times during a brief loan spell not sure what season but lets hope hills learnt from his mistakes and adds some proven championship quality players he should be looking at trying to tempt stock coppinger and hayter from donny proven to cut it at championship more than good enough to add to our squad with some of the drab hills fetched in at least they have experience of this league and know how to dog it out in a relegation battle because i cant see any more than a relegation battle unless he pulls a few good signingsHe signed for Barnsley on Friday, please stay in touch with what's going on people, it's getting boring this

Derby county are to sign ex on loan
forward Alberto Bueno.He has a
release clause of 350,000.Hope he
might adapt better to the English
winters(10)(7)Wish it was true but this is a loa of rubbish, more like a realse clause of 3.5 million and anyway in his contract theres a clause to say real madrid have 1st refusal if he is up for transfer FACT!!But hes 24 now.I doubt hes suddenly going to become better than Higuian,Benzema and Ronaldo.
He said he liked his time here and wouldnt mind moving here forever as he stated on twitter and Rams player.

Football is football. Jason pearce,joel ward,stephen henderson,kelvin etuhu and soon: liam lawrence,dave kitson,greg halford,nwkwo kanu,marko futacs,and erik huseklepp leave the portsmouth. But ben haim will continue to play for portsmouth, want to bet? , balram chainrai will buy portsmouth and will hire again: david james,papa bouba diop, hermann hreidarsson,ricardo rocha,matt ritchie and danny webber,thus the first team squad portsmouth in season 2012/13 will be:

26-ben haim
8-bouba diop
25-thompson(2)(45)Oh how we all love the daily dose of skate humour....Even the over fans are starting to realise what a joke of club this isNo chanceDeluded.Like ritchies gonna go to them when championship teams want himI'll have some of that, you aren't going to sign any of the players mentioned. It will be like taking candy from a baby. Come on put your money where your mouth isNot a chance!If youre like youre club youve got no money pay up pompey pay up pompey thanks for etuhu anyway...........Ben haims wages will run you into the ground alone. I'll be sure to pay a visit to the Tesco where Fratton Park used to be, wearing my premier league Saints shirt.You won't be signing anyone, you will start the season still in administration and be subject to a transfer embargo.
You might get a couple of players that no other club wants who will be out contract and without a club.... welcome to reality skates.Does anyone listen to appleton he wants YOUNG FRESH blood not 80 year old men join all of us normal pompey fans mate never gonna happen PUPWhy would we want our old team? would rather a hungry youthfull squad than the people we sold/released a few seasons ago on sky high wagesPremier league shirt? ok for one season you are rightPortsmouth will be wearing league 2 shirts next season by the looks of itI'm a pompey fan and even i agree you are talking complete bcksGot to admit, really far fetched! Pompey i believe will come out of administration via a CVA with either Chanrai of the PST, there will be no further points deduction. Players listed will not be signed by Pompey, look out for young local players and players who have L1/2 experience. PUP

Stoke to sign bellamy. Defoe. Brayford. O hara. Jarvis. Owen.(8)(59)Bellamy will either stay or go to cardiff
Defoe and owen might join
Brayford will definately not be joining
O hara Possible but seems more likely
west bromThose players like to play football, so Stoke have no chanceImpossible ........ they're all too small and they play football !!Defoe looking fairly likely to happen and Pulis spoke about Owen being an option yesterday. Jones will leave before anything happensDon't think Stoke will be spending about £30m this year which is what it will take to land that lot and that's not including signing-on fees.

BobbybuffonHaha stoke getting defoe ..wot a load of rubbish..This is nothing that us stoke fans have not heard before, you dont realise that we might be getting these new players to change stoke and our ways of playingDefoe is a definite possibility as what ever team one of the pair have joined (crouch and defoe) the other has soon followed matt javis looks like a good addition but also kightly as well could improve the squad greatly we need to start looking for players that play football or to just start as that is the next point of improvement and we are starting to realise and try to play football and when we do short spells granted we look a good side when we do play football the main concern of me is the rumours about huth leaving who could we get/afford to replace him if he leaves

yeovil town are expecting to sign stewart beavon from wycombe for an estimated 45k within the next week making him one of the most expensive signings since pablo bastianini. {E(4)(24)Wycombe want £500k for him, so not sure £45k wuold get him!But pablo pastini was 250,000 45k is really anywhere near thatGet real Yeovil, 45k for Stewart Beavon we turned down a bid of 350k from Bournemouth not long ago...Ha dont tell my club to get real, tell it to this lunatic who made up this rumour!Bastianini cost nowhere near 250,000 in terms of a transfer fee. That figure includes signing on fee, wages, etc.It's on wiki the price we paid for Pablo kind of a waste of money considering he left for nothingI can promice you this. i know people say they work for clubs etc.. but hand on heart, i really was working for yeovil town when pablo bastianini was at yeovil, and he really was £250k. he didnt have an signing on fees as we sorted him out with a house in yeovil. he was rubbish lolThe fact that it's on wiki doesn't mean it's true. The Yeovil chairman stated after Bastianini left, that the signing had cost the club in the region of £250,000. That figure included the money we had to spend to pay up his contract. Agree with you though, however much he cost, it was money wasted. {Ed001's Note - he was a free transfer, no money went to his previous club.}But even so we payed 50k for chris cohen back in the dayNo chance, mainly as its clearly a lie based on figures and club, but also Beavon will only leave for a big club and would rather not have to move home

Emile Heskey interests Barnsley but only if they can get wages down(11)(28)Don't think so, can't afford him.We could if all those who criticise the club but never attend bought season tickets not just tickets for play off and wembleyDont know where got that from hes going back to leicester city.I agree, too many fair weather waste of time fans that criticise the team after each of the two games they attend all season!Hes going on loan to rochdale before going to barnsley, only reason hill is intereseted in himIm a barnsley fan and but i dont go to all matches, perhaps if ticket prices were realistic with the quality of football i would, jumpin from 22 to 30 and makin 75% of games cat a was daft

My brother in law is best friends with Adam Johnson.
I live in Hartlepool and my brother in law recently brought Adam round my mams as she does teeth whitening and she done his. He told me that Roberto Di Matteo has already spoken to him regarding a transfer if he gets the job at Chelsea and he will sign for Chelsea in a flash as he is sick of being a part time player at City and he has already been told if an offer comes in over £10 million he can talk to them. This is 100% true and i have NEVER posted on here before butthis came from the horses mouth.(20)(39)Does that horse now have whiter teeth too? {Ed025's Note - lol..Wtf this got to do with hartlepool unitedSo he's not happy being a part-time player at Man City but he's so excited about being a part-time player at Chelsea that he gabs about it to the lass who whitens his teeth?Can she book me in for next week?Some mate you are...squealer!Surely he's been tapped up then? Is this not illigal?It only says he live in Hartlepool no mention of United!As credible as this rumour is, there is one hitch. Adam Johnson is on holiday in Las Vegas. That horse is a white-tooth liar.So if you know johnson on holiday in vegas has he not told you who or where he will be next season as it seems you know him wellI just follow him on Twitter. It's not difficult.

QPR have have met the release clause for Montpellier star Olivier Giroud. It is believed to be in the region of £12.8 million.(10)(37)Yeah right, like one of the most sought after strikers in Europe would leave Champions league football to go to a relegation scrap with QPR. Dream OnQPR won't be in a relagation scrap next year, but I agree, extremely unlikely he would leave Montpellier for QPRQpr should look at ones that they have a better chance at signingIt doesnt say he has signed, just that QPR have placed a bid. it doesnt say he has agreed terms just that QPR have bid !Bid shows ambition. No hope will they sign him but making the bid might turn a few heads in QPR's direction. Statement of intent.Yes evidence of Hughes' famous "ambition" - that's why he's with a relegation candidate club.QPR wont be a relegation candidate nex season though will they? look at what Hughes did at Blackburn, he turned them into a midtable team with very little money and QPR have loads so he should be looking to push even higher up the table in the next 2-4 seasons.Once again, QPR won't be in a relegation scrap next year, will be much more solid and consistant.

J Rod has started negotiations with Southampton. Source - BBC(27)(6)Please, for the love of God, stop calling him "Jay Rod". It doesn't make you sound like you're on personal terms with the man. It doesn't make you sound edgy. It doesn't make you sound "in-the-know". It makes you sound like like an utter knb. (Ed, I know you can't publish this, but it's really beginning to pi55 me off. Sorry)Mate he's just writing j rod where it is more easier to say than his whole name you dont have to get all mad about itTake a chill pill FFS who r u his mum?J Rod's the man!Come on J Rod, Sign!Bloody hell mate bit silly to get wound up about something like that! Everyone writes his name like that, its just one of those things...People dont do it to give the impression they know him or anything, its just a shorter way of typing his name.Everton have made a late bid for rodriguezEverton have not made a late bid, they have declared interest but need to sell before they can put a bid in.Not wanting to be picky (okay, I am), but 1. I didn't call him Jay Rod I called him J Rod and 2. I did it coz I don't know how to spell RodriguezMate you need to calm down everyone calls him j rod its easier than his full nameKD
J RodEverton need to sell before they buy. So I highly doubt that rumour is true.Exactly they cant afford a player like him and the deal is pretty much done, he will probs join us as we have the ambition to be bigger than EvertonI realise we don't know what goes on behind the scenes but I wish he'd hurry up and sign,it's getting to the stage where it looks as though he's waiting to see what other options he's got.Stop pissing about J Rod and join a great club.No bid yet just enquired everton must sell to buy and i would think signing pienar is more of a priorityIf J Rod hasn't signed by Monday night then.......I hope that isnt the saints team played:L steve cant start; and you'd chose deano over cork? Deano seems to have pressure problems, i.e. the reading game last year! and id have billy over "j rod" ;)Looking at the bigger picture Rodriguez holding out for other clubs to sniff aound hardly makes me think he is that bothered and will unsettle other players who are. Happy for him to go elsewhere and we get someone who sees us a first choice.Think Rodriguez would be a great player to sign but I really think that we need to sign some more top flight experienced footballers. Don't you think? Possibly yakubu or someone?

Peterborough are looking at loaning Wolves Young Starlet
Zeli Ismail, the young lad is very highly rated for the future with the likes of Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool looking at him for a permanent basis, if he moves to a lower club on loan it will help him experience first team action and Peterborough can give that to him.(3)(20)1 phrase LOL .. you couldn't afford his laces he turned down Chelsea n man cityNo loans for Posh this summer!No chance. if jarvis is sold he'll be playing 4 wolves.. they knw how good he is.. dnt need 2 loan him out. only got a year left on his contract. so why would they loan him out?Heard the same about his team mate the striker Mcalinden looks like the Wolves players are all off to Peterbourgh lol not!Forde is above Ismail in the pecking order at th moment so it may be trueAs i understand it, past loans have been ineffective and so the decision not to use that market has been taken by the club except on an emergency basis.

West ham have not even made an enquiry about Zaha so all the rumours are complete rubbish. The CPFC chairman said it on twitter. And if Bolton made a bid of £8million in january why would they accept £7million now :/(6)(14)Becauses prices go down as well as up maybe?
Just a thought!Maybe he's not been playing as good but is still a good player worth that amount x

Tottenham are in talks with Barcelona for Thiago Alcantara.(11)(27)This is utter nonsense. Alcantara is seen as one of the brightest prospects ever to come out of the Camp Nou. Anyone clicking the "Believable" clearly knows nothing about football. {Ed007's Note - Anyone using the term 'the Camp Nou' really shouldn't be taken seriously. Stick to the X-Box and virtual El Clasico matches at the The Estadio Santiago Bernabeau.}Lmfao That's funny Ed007. Anyone that calls the Nou Camp anything else is just trying to sound like some idiot pundit from TV. I suppose Hazard is pronounced Haazzzaarrr in you litle world......

Like the Ed says, stick to the xbox and pretending you are doing interviews as a manager when you are in the shower. Plank!^^^ You do both realise that the actual official name of the "Nou Camp" is the Camp Nou? It means new stadium and the only reason its known at all as the Nou Camp is because of english speakers who put the Nou before the Camp? So don't run your mouth before you know what you're talkin about.

Ex Chesterfield player Dean Morgan is close to completing a move to fellow league two team Aldershot. He had a successful loan spell there at the end of the 2009/10 season.(2)(4)Aldershot are welcome to Dean Morgan he has zero work rate and a poor attitude.Hope he staysQuality player on his day but quite often lazy and injured.Kevin phillips spotted going into b2net the other day.Kevin Philips was supposedly spotted there before last season as well. LolKevin Phillips was at b2 net last season but only to keep during pre season, he was training with the squad. (like Beckham did with arsenal when he first moved to America) Phillips was never goin to join chesterfield, I wish he had. But I think Kevin Phillips playing for chesterfield is a no go. And it's midfielders and defenders the mighty spierites need.Phillips took up his final year option at Blackpool then will retire. Never was joining CFC last year or thisPablo Mills on way to chesterfield after being Let go from crawley

Arsene wenger eyeing up anthony pilkington as replacement to departing RVP, norwich holding out for 5 million.(6)(39)Total rubbish
Pilkington is not going anywhere this Season if he shows same form next season he will be worth a lot more than £5MPilks is a wingerWe would not sell pilks for less than ten millionWhat a load of rubbish!

Firstly, Pilks is a winger.

Secondly, and probably more importantly, as much as I rate Pilks and think he'll be a big player for NCFC next season, he's not in RVP's class.He is nowhere near Arsenal class and RVP's replacement has already been bought in Podolski.We would, just not that likely to be soldNot in arsenals class? A young winger who scored 8 in his first season in the prem shortly after recovering from a broken leg. He is easily arsenals classI'm a Norwich fan and he's not Arsenal class. By any stretch of the imagination.

Ipswich town close to signing george boyd and simon cox fulham and qpr keen on jay emmanuel thomas, jewell keen to pair up jimmy b with coppinger,andy drury to anchor midfield.(2)(18)I hope both of them come to Ipswich.Can't see Coppinger coming though and we're not selling JET, Jewell said do himself.For god sake coppinger is not joining ipswich it is true we did try to sign him last year but thats was then and ipswich have new targetsJewell actually said he would sell jet if right offer comes in and i would think premier league is more appealing than bottom half of championship and 7 1 hammerings at peterboroNot jimmy "dont play dont care and get 18k " bullardAt least it's not jimmy "dont play dont care and get 45k " bullard like it used to be at HullOh that's original. Brig up the 7-1 drumming. Convenient that you forgot the time we thrashed West Ham 5-1. Ipswich is not a bad place to be.
Although we may sell him at the right price. I think he was valued at 3 million.

Jay Rodriguez to snub Southampton and sign for Everton.(23)(28)How do you know did he tell you that himself haha plus dont everton have to sell first before they can buy a playerEverton cant aford himYou dont have any idea what he will do! No one does apart from him. Everton are interested apparently, but they need to sell before they can bid and they will not be able to match what Saints are offering. However if he wants to wait and see if Everton can buy him then fair enough Saints will move on to the next target. As a Saints fan I only want players who want to join and give 100% to the club.Not going to happen, will sign for Saints over the weekend, New keeper next week."As a Saints fan I only want players who want to join and give 100% to the club."
I agree, if he isn´t sure and fails to make a decision in the next couple of days then we should move on. Plenty of time to find someone else. (preferably someone who is proven in the prem)The funny part is if he will most probably snub your club (Everton) and every other club such as Aston Villa and Wigan because we have more potentialGood post mate,totally agree.Everton don't have the time left to do it. Southampton will have given him a deadline, if he misses that he risks not going to Everton if they can't raise the money. They don't have many players that are desirable for big money. Also, pienaar is top of their list, so they will be buying him first.Don't have many players desirable for big money? Are you mad? Baines, Fellaini, Heitinga, Osman, Cahill etc etc. Jeez I hate it when newly promoted fans think their team is the best thing since sliced bread. Hope Saints enjoy their religation battle this season.
