Eddie Nolan who has been released by Scunthorpe is to sign a 12 month contract with Hibernian(12)(6)


11 May 2012 22:01:47
Ipswich Town have recently been linked with Hull City striker, Matty Fryatt. Paul Jewell thinks that he could form a lethal partnership with Michael Chopra and would result in Jason Scotland leaving the club. However, Ipswich would need Scotland to be prepared to drop a division, as their wage budget would not allow Fryatt to sign while Scotland was still at the club.(11)(16)

Barnsley boss Keith Hill is keen on signing three players this weekend.
18 year old Bury midfielder Luke McCarthy has impressed Hill whilst on loan at Grimsby and is seen as one for the future. He is set to be out of contract this summer and could cost Barnsley only a tribunal fee.
Algeria international Adelene Guedioura is close to signing a one year deal after being told by his club Wolves he will be released in the summer. The 26 year old was on loan at Nottingham Forest this season and was another who impressed Hill on loan elsewhere.
Finally, the third midfielder very close to joining is Northern Ireland under 21 international Eunan O'Kane from Torquay. A fee has been agreed and contractual terms are set to be concluded this Sunday evening.(4)(19) 

If Adelene Guedioura left woves he would sign for forest loves it hereThe problem is Gueidioura has NOT been told he will be released during the summer , Stale has not seen any of the squad in action.Guedioura will not be going barnsley. 1 thing I can guarentee is that barnsley will be relegated next season!!He wont be going anywhere just yet


11 May 2012 21:41:20
Southampton are looking at Josh McEachran for a season long loan as he would provide much needed stability in midfield. Also, Nigel Adkins is planning an audacious swoop for Ji-Sung Park.(22)(32)Josh McEachran is best mates with Jack Cork... LIKELY....we already have "much needed stability" in midfield.
And I can't see Adkins making loan signings to help develop youngsters of rival sidesYou need loans when you come to the Premiership as it means if you go straight back down no big wagesOr you just put a wage structure in place so you're not paying ridiculous wages anyway.No there not, how do you no?


11 May 2012 21:19:46
ipswich to sign free agent richard naylor source twtd(9)(26)Did this work when we bought any of the following back to the club;

11 May 2012 20:45:29
Southampton could be set to sign Alvaro Negredo or even Micheal Owen(12)(39)Oh dear god not again! Please stop!Ha Ha Hee Hee ..... Michael Owen maybe , Ha ha hee heeNo way Southampton gets Negredo. Owen? Don't make me laugh. Sharp and Lambert are much more better than him.Maybe heskey or somethingJealous fans coyrOMG not Owen again, he will not come to Saints, anyway he is linked to every club on here (apart Pompey). Dont get me wrong probably do a job still for someone if fit, thats the trouble, he is never fit. As a Saints fan i think we need to buy players that will be fit for the whole season if we are to try and stay up.


11 May 2012 20:37:44

Tranmere, Woking and Farnborough....These are all quality players who's potential cannot be seen by other managers. Westley will pick up players for nothing and have the experience to get the club back in the watch...Check out Jack King, the guy is pure quality and should be in the PremYe right utmp

Derby County to sign

Paid Transfers
Michael Jacobs-Nom fee
Fegor Ogude-450k
Krystian Pearce-175k
Havard Neilsen-300k

Free Transfers
Karleigh Osbourne
Sammy Clingan

This is all derby are getting.Nigel has
been promised by first team strikers
Theo Robinson and Steve davies that
Next season they can get 20 goals.So
no big name striker will be bought.
Havard Neilsen will be bought as a
Future player for the club not a
present one.

"Fegor Ogude is the powerful centre
midfielder similar to Yaya toure that
can break up counter attacks and
start his own counter attack with his
pace on the ball"-Nigel clough

This is a quote from nigel clough in the
video from scouting trip.

Most derby fans are aware of him now.(12)(15)I cant see them free transfers happening, we do not need more than one CB coming in. jacobs, ogude and pearce look the most promising out of them all.Where did you get this supposed quote from? I don't see any video. Seems to me that youre trying to make something up here pal.

11 May 2012 19:25:45
From a good source within the Ipswich Town coaching staff;

Whilst many people/papers think Joel Ward is off to Leeds, they are wrong. Ward has agreed everything with ITFC, medical, personal terms etc. The deal is set to go through by Tuesday afternoon, with him signing a 3 year deal with the Suffolk side. Although he spent all day Wednesday at Leeds, his first choice was with Ipswich, and after spending the day at ITFC today, he wants to put pen to paper at portman road.

Just what I've been told from a coaching staff member.

Also said that Clegg/Evans are trying to agree a fee with Coventry and Dundee United for defenders Keogh and Gunning.(9)(25)Upset ipswich fan hoping and praying ^^I heard the draw of Leeds was to play alongside his buddy Jason Pearce. Ipswich have been courting him longer though, so I think he could go either way. Up to him, I guess.
wallyHe will go where his pal J Pearce is.....LeedsThat's bs Ward has been in talks with Leeds since beginning of last week and he WILL join Leeds. Source: A very good friend of mine who used to play for Leeds.Richard Keogh wont be sold by CCFC unless it is for £3m plus and add on's as he is a key figure in teamLeeds, done dealWell its saturday morning and having just read the Yorkshire Post, Looks like Ward will make his decision next week, so a done deal is wrong, but we do know that Ward & Pearse are like Siamease twins, so he could go to Leeds, but dont be surprised if he decides to go elsewhere, also this was not an upset Tractor Boys comments, if he comes then all well and good, if he chooses Leeds that's fine.
Next, Ipswich are only interested in Keogh no offer has been put in for him, there are other players PJ is looking at to bring in, so Keogh will not fetch £3m but more like £750'000 tops, the days of big transfer fees in the championship are gone, under the new embargo of limited amounts spent, clubs have to live within their own means now, if not and over spend penalty points can be deducted for the offending clubs.



11 May 2012 19:00:28
Heskey and shelvey(loan) into birmingham foster and zigic out
Stoke city to move for scott Dann and reading to go in for Barry ferguson(6)(21)Heskey wants to stay in the prem. Did you miss your play-off fail?

Barcalona and Real Madrid are pursuing Billy Bodin the Welsh U21 International who is rated the next Ryan Giggs in Wales. The Swindon Towm Striker/Winger who is on Loan at Crewe is attracting big interest. Swindon and Paolo Di Canio would command a big fee, somewhere in the region of £3-5 million. {Ed025's Note - nice one billy..(8)(39)


11 May 2012 18:09:51
Bristol Rovers boss Mark McGhee has delayed an announcement regarding his retained list due to talks with Gary Sawyer. The defender has been in negotiations over a new deal as McGhee saw him as a decent option as back-up to the first 11, but the former Plymouth defender is eager to up his wages at the club. As the management don't see Sawyer as a first team starter they aren't keen to pay big wages and are coming to a point where they may withdraw their offer.

Aside from that, McGhee is settled on the rest of the out of contract players. Scott McGleish, Byron Anthony and Lance Cronin are definitely going to be released and contracted players Craig Stanley and Joe Anyinsah have been told they are free to find a new club. This is to free up more wages for recruitment as neither are in McGhee's plans. Wayne Brown is likely to be invited back for pre-season training, as is Kayne McLaggon, because the club don't want to commit to contracts for the pair due to their recent injury problems. One other player, Michael Boateng, is causing McGhee a headache in regards to a new deal. He's very highly rated and has a lot of potential, but McGhee is satisfied with Danny Woodards and Michael Smith at right back, meaning he faces a dilemma as to whether or not to retain him.

Elesewhere both Woodards and Mustapha Carayol have been offered contract extensions, with the club hoping both will commit soon, despite the interest in them. In regards to incoming signings and McGhee is in talks with a number of players already. The defence and midfield are his priorities, with a striker or two also on his shopping list. At the moment he's happy to move forward with Scott Bevan as his first choice goalkeeper.(4)(6)


11 May 2012 18:09:19
Ritchie De Laet has signed for Leicester City, not sure if its a loan or permanent but he has definitely signed!

Thanks.(21)(18)Fee has been agreed with Man United also a fee agreed for Matty James - Larnell Cole has apparently signed thoughWhere do you get your info from?....i'm listening to Radio Leicester sport and reading the Leicester Mercury sports pages every day and i haven't heard a damn thing, the rumours are there but nothing for certain, now i'm not saying your a liar and you may well know something we dont (radio leic & the merc are not exactly 'on the ball' after all) but i'd love to know where you have got your info from just so i can tune in / read it myself!Believe it or not, i used to be a football agent, used to look after a few of the young United lads so im still in contact!Cheers!


11 May 2012 18:07:27

but did saints put a
selll on clause on
gareth bale when
he joined spurs(4)(11)We had a clause but Rupert Lowe waved it in favour of us getting Tommy Forecast. So no we dont.Yes They cashed it in Called Tommy Forecast!!!


11 May 2012 18:06:09
southampton seem to want another striker, many have been linked already, which could mean Connolly/Barnard leaving.
Seem to want a CM and a winger, again a couple have been mentioned for each, and leaving from midfield will be Holmes and maybe Puncheon as part as a swap deal
in defence saints seem to want a RB and a CB, if a RB comes in expect Butterfield/Richardson to leave. Jaidi expected to retire, posted on twitter that he hasnt gone to Spain&Vegas with the lads as he's considering his future.
Also seem to want a second choice GK, someone young and hungry is the type of players Adkins will sign.
the striker shortlist could include; Hooper, JayRod, Marvin Sordell(loan)
midfielders linked are; Jarvis, Michu, Mutch, Redmond, Mark Davies, Matt Phillips, Snodgrass
defenders are; Clyne, Danny Simpson, Van Der Weil, C.Davies, S.Dann.
Gk; Courtois.
knowing Cortese & Adkins deals will be kept behind closed doors, many of these will not happen, but i reckon at keast 3 of them will, with some others maybe breaking down with wages & transfer fee's ect, but saying that I wouldn't be surprised if Cortese did pay big money in order to establish Southampton as a Premier League side(21)(7)There's a rumour Snodgrass has agreed a new four-year deal at Leeds. Unconfirmed though.
wallyJayRod? Do you mean Jay Rodriguez at Burnley. Will he partner RicLam and get service from Adalal, with KelDav keeping them out at the other end!! Use proper names or dont post at all. THIS IS NOT AMERICA.


11 May 2012 17:59:34

Al fahim is coming to pompey's rescue. With the promised 50 million(1)(27)LOL at this!£50 million...for what? Will it be used to save the local businesses that have gone bust because Portsmouth havent paid them putting hard working people out of work, in order to pay stupid wages on useless players Portsmouth fans want sympathy now the club is going bust but they werent concerned about the debt problem when they had the 5/6th highest wage bill in the Premier league and one of the lowest attendances, they didnt care that this debt won them an FA cup. Now the reality as hit home, spending money they haven't/hadn't got they now want other fans to feel sorry for them.


11 May 2012 17:50:54

11 May 2012 16:04:52
Reading will sign:
Garath McCleary
Bjorn Sigardarson
Peter Whittingham
and many more...(12)(31)McCleary is done and dusted. Local rag was wrong to say talks were now taking place. McCleary was seen in the hotel with McD and Hammond last week, so talks are all but done in any case.

Sigardason might not happen. Reading offered £1m plus add-ons but Lillstrom want £3.5m upfront. Talks are now on hold as neither party want to budge (for now)

Whittingham is wanted, but I know no more than that. He could go to any number of bottom half Prem clubs, so we'll see.We need a CB and LB. Then we are set if we sign those players as well. I think those players will be set to Reading if we agree a price.You mean Gylfi Siggurdson? The one that plays for Hoffenheim? Not Lillestrom? And £1mill? LOL.

Ok, you clearly are in the know.No he means Bjorn SigurdarsonLOL Fail. "You're clearly in the know" More then you it would seem.


11 May 2012 16:04:51
mcleary has had a shock change of heart after recieving a phone call from crystal palace fc while doing his medical at reading. it looks like he will now sign for palace instead.(11)(20)CrystaLOL PaLOLace you say?

Yeah of course he'd prefer Championship football for less money as well. It all makes perfect sense...Haha this post in just delusionalSorry Reading fans but I work at the club and can confirm that this story holds truth, whether you like it or not. Sadly.Has now passed his medical and just needs to agree terms. The moment you said you work for the club (palace or reading, I don't know) made this rumour laughable.


11 May 2012 15:45:52

11 May 2012 14:52:56
man city are planning to bid 110 million for messi, they are also planning a 100 million bid for ronaldo(12)(49)His release clause is £170m. HTHGood luck playing in europeIt would be pointless Messi has stated many times that he will stay at Barca until he finally finishes off his career back in Argentina then hangs up his boots. Ronaldo was pretty adamant he wouldn't be moving any time soonMessi was told by Barcelona at the age of 15 that the team and club was going to be built around him. You couldnt afford his yearly income! I suppose he would give that up to play in the most over-hyped league in football.Just because city have money doesn't mean that they are going to buy every player under the sun, personally i would like to see united win the title as i do not feel city deserve it for trying to buy the leagueAnd Man Utd havent tried to buy the league are you sure about that? The current Man Utd squad was assembled for about £300mWell no. utd buy players and develop them (ronaldo, rooney, nani) city try to buy everybody in sight for ridiculous amounts of moneyPlease all you Big clubs are as bad as each other and to be honest why shoudn't you. Barca, Madrid you all spend silly money on tranfers. Its the managers that do my head in. Pundits give them credit. I would love to see what Mancini could do with a 2-3 million budget.I'm not a fan of either club but personally I'd love to see someone other than man u win the title just for a change. Without a doubt, City deserve it this season and I know that may be hard for utd fans to stomach but hey, for 90% of you, they're not even you're local team.If ferguson hadthe same
money to spend as city
hed spend like there was
no tomorrow
but he aintRooney cost £30m, more than David Silva cost City. Ferdinand was £30m Young £22 the list is endless.United spend wot they earn. city spens their owners money end ofIf you thought Man City fans were deluded before..........I think buying the title has gone to their heads.

Reading to sign McCleary thing. Forest fans call him McDreary. 21 goals in an awful side as a winger?
Typical Forest fan, big club ya know. Won a big trophy in 1912 or something.
RambiterI like Forest, but like Derby, they think they're something they're not. Being a big club 40 odd years ago means nothing in todays game unless you're still winning trophies.

He looks very good. Good with both feet, eye for goal and likes to run at people. That will be a bonus in the Prem. Bad side is his inconsistency, but then so is Kebe and McAnuff...Agree with the above that Kebe is inconsistent by Jobi is solid IMO doesn't always deliver but gives 100%Good luck to him. Exciting player with the ball to his feet and I hope he sets the prem alight.
As for the forest fans thinking we are do thing we are not. You'll find it is other fans that go on about our past and not us. We can't change the fact we used to win things, as you cannot change the fact derby are the worst prem team in history.
Can you please move on and
Ook to the future, rather than looking at our past everyone.
Oh and we have never called him mcdreary, so please stop making things up.Forest never called him McDreary only thing that is annoying is his stupid skills

Paul Groves is the new manager!Odd, Paul Groves has been given the job!Wrong!LOL. You named a manager today. Never heard of him befoROFLe.11 May 2012 18:53:09

Harry Redknapp will be given £80m to rebuild his squad this summer however he will have to replace his two best players in Gareth Bale who looks set for a £40m move to Barcelona and Luka Modric who was told last summer he would be allowed to leave for £35m this summer. Emmanuel Adebayor is heading back to City and Defoe wants to leave which means Tottenham will need at least two new forwards. King,Gallas,Gomes,Corluka,Bassong and Dos Santos are some of the other 1st teamers set to leave. Massive summer ahead at Tottenham Adam Johnson,Gieusippi Rossi,Loic Remy,Jan Vertonghen,Ben Foster and Ever Banega have all been tracked by Harry and we may see a few of these players at the Lane next year. I will be heartbroken to see Bale and Modric leave but neither player wants to stay so good riddance I say lets just hope that neither of them end up at another EPL club.(14)(22)EPL? I assume you are foreign then? Who here calls it the EPL?There's no truth in Modric and Bale going and Barca are not in a position to consider buying Bale because they have other priorities and will most likely sign Alba.
Defoe does want out though and Ade will probably not agree any deal on salary so will most likely return to CityRossi is out injured for around 9 months. Levy will not sanction that deal nor would he trust Harry with £80 let alone £80m.
The Bale to Barca is balls, It is because the president said they were interested and the pro Barca papers have all printed the story yet there is no truth or substance. The biggest transfer at Tottenham this summer is not players but the sacking of Redknapp and a new management team put in place.Rossi is injured. i don't see that one happenning!Harry won't be leaving this summer what happens next summer remains to be seen

Celtic are considering a move for Alessandro Nesta. The veteran centre-back will be leaving AC Milan at the end of the season.
They are also in for centre-backs Ben Haim, Grant Hanley and Matt Mills.(8)(22)I dont believe a club like Celtic to be able to match the wages that Matt Mills is currently on at LCFC. Shame the decline of Scottish FootballDont worry Leicester fans Matt Mills not good enough for Celtic (Not good enough for European football) championship full of central defenders who were not good enough for Celtic , but who are stars in your league , Jos Hooiveld , Darren O'Dea and Stephen McManus to name a few , i hear Leicester are interested in Kelvin Wilson (Not good enough , he's been found out) please take him .


11 May 2012 11:09:46
Coventry to sign sixteen year old striking starlet Jack Tollett with similar moves for commanding centre back Fabio Greenwood and playmaker Diogene Neza. Although it has been said that these are moves for the future, with the current financial situation at the club these players could find themselves in the starting line up sooner than expected.(5)(11)Thought coventry were under a transfer embargo after failing to send in finance details to HMRCI thought any club under a transfer embargo could sign players that are 18 and under


11 May 2012 10:59:05
Portsmouth applied to play in the conference next season, yesterday. This is from a reliable source who works at fratton.(35)(14)If Portsmouth did that then it's logical to cover the worse case scenario of liquidation, even if Balram Chainrai has said he will not let that happen.They applied about two weeks ago for the southern league (two below the conference) why would they then reaply for another league?What total tosh dont now what u are talking aboutWhich conference, south or premier, H/S and the police may have something to say about it.Probably just to be safe than sorry.They got turned down as their ground doesnt meet the right disability standardsBalram Chainrai wont take over again, he wont pass the fit and proper test, does not have enough funds, all he is interested in is his own money, face it Pompey there is a real possibility you could be liquidated.What a load of nonsense. They would only apply to play outside the football league if they were going into liquidation and need to start again.

If they did that then you wouldn't be allowed to start so high up the pyramid.What utter garbage! im a leeds fan and feel for the pompey fans is it not bad enough for them without morons posting crap!! unless your a city fan then realise it could so easily happen 2 your club....I can categorically state that Portsmouth
have not made any such applications.
Michael Appleton is working on his retained list and looking to rebuild for League 1.Why would you feel sorry for a Portsmouth fan. The debt didnt bother them when they were winning the FA cup. Its just now that the reality of what 'Arry and that team cost the club to win it are the fans concerned.

Notts County have agreed a number of deals.
Krystian Pearce to Derby for £250k
Lee Barnard from Southampton £150k
Mark Ellis from Torquay £50k
Tomas Cywka Free
Simon Church from Reading £100k
Hogan Ephraim from QPR undisclosed
Shaun Derry from QPR Free
Cristian Ribiero Free(7)(31)No chance of half the players you think are coming in.
cywka, church, ephraim, ribiero will have options to play in the championship with the big boys. why would they go down to your level?? no disrespectNever would you get Lee Barnard for £150k!We will not sell Church for 100k. When we rejected a larger amount of Swansea. He will probably go out on loan.Not sure that Church and Cywka would both drop that far down, and I think Readings valuation on Simon Church would be more than that as wellBoth QPR players too good for youI'd give Notts County 100K to take Simin Church.Church, derry, cywka and barnard, are you being serious?As st as church is you wont get him for 100kI hate Church but you'd need £1,000,000 for him. McD rates him. He's the only one, but he does like him.Cywka to Notts County? PMSL he ain't going there as he will be going back to his homeland (Poland)

Mike jones and danny jones to barnsley (nominal fees)
Beevers to MK if promoted(5)(28)Sorry mate you have no chance of danny batth will be 1st choice at wolves next season you can have johnsonDo you bother reading any other posts on here? Or do you just sit around eating Cheesy Puffs whilst watching CBBC trying to think of what other crap you can make up whilst occasional getting scared and running to the Doctor because you have noticed you have no reflection? Matt Ritchie is not for sale, Matt Ritchie has AGAIN said I want to stay, Paolo Di Canio has AGAIN said I WILL NOT allow my best players to leave, Jeremy Wray has AGAIN said Swindon WILL NOT be selling their best players. FRINGE PLAYERS will be leaving but PDC intend to strengthen not weaken the squad ready to TRY and get back to back promotions!!But batth you cant part of wolves plans i hopeI no vardy n he is not going to Wednesday... Bothroyd n Johnson... Were U get things from? Ridiculous..jj is out of contract so he won't be going on a player plus cash deal. N McDonald. why would sufc sell there best player to Wednesday?Heaton and Gerrard I can see happening. Heaton is a good keeper and showed that in the CC this season. As long as he is first choice though. Gerrard is League 1 standard and even though Sheff Wed have been promoted they won't be able to attract many decent champ players.


11 May 2012 10:49:31
As a reading fan for 20 years, I am just chuffed we are back in the premiership. I couldn't care less who we are rumoured to sign. Whatever descisions bm makes, just like all his others I will trust. You wait he will blindsided everyone and sign a few more players that noone has ever heard of, that turn out to be strokes of genius!!(15)(8)Shut up, this isn't a rumour just be quiet if you don't have anything relevant to say.Back in the premiership or how long 1 possibly 2 seasons make the most of it you will be the same as qpr have been this seasonAre, the little cry babies are out to mock Reading for getting promoted when their little club sits in the Champ or League 1 or 2.

Get over yourselves. Anyone that loves the game would be pleased for Reading.

They're a good club; potentially a very big club too. Huge catchment area, cracking stadium, always sell out at top level and almost 20,000 average last season and 19,000 previous to that.

But people like to mock all the time, and it's all a load on nonsense!This is too true. Give Reading some credit, they have good backroom staff and based on rumors appear to be operating sensibly in the transfer market.

Don't be too quick to write off newly promoted teams. Everyone was hating on Swansea last season and they played arguable the most attractive football in the PL this season


11 May 2012 10:47:03

Matt Mills is going back to reading for £3m, he admitted it hasnt worked at leicester and with Reading willing to take his wages on and make him captain again the move will go through in the next week or so.(12)(12)As a Reading fan I don't want him back at all. He can do one, he's sht and we got great money from selling him to Leicester, and we have Gorkss who is a far better defender anyway as has been proven last two seasons champions for us and QPR. This is not going to happen.He can fck Off! He will never come back. Probably a Leicester fan knowing they got ripped off. Thanks for the money and taking Mills off us who was a distraction more than anything.We would not have him back let alone make him Captain. He has an attitude problem which Leicester fans have seen. Plus Jobi is a better captain.Hahah in his dreams! He put his middle finger up to us (literally) by going to Leicester. No chance. And come back as captain?! Never in a million years.Reading won't want him back. he has been awfull this season and selling him and getting gorkss was the best thing reading did this seasonIm a Swansea fan and I have to say that Matt Mills was one of the best defenders i saw last year, a much better defender than GorkssTypical swansea fan, one year in the prem and they lose all knowledge of football! Gorkss, pearce, cummings and even dave kitson would be better at centre back than mills...Mills better than Gorkks!! You've got to be joking. I'm a leicester fan living near Reading, i've seen both play a few times this season, and Gorkks is a far better player in every aspect of the game. The worrying thing is Mills actually thinks he's a great player! absolutely laughable.

Things are getting increasingly bizarre at Leeds United, with manager Neil Warnock and Chairman Ken Bates contradicting one another on transfers. While Warnock has repeatedly stressed the urgency of bringin players in sooner rather than later, Bates has told fans that nothing will happen for a few months.

All this is doubly confusing given Bates made the claims as Leeds held talks with Joel Ward.(14)(2)Don't worry, the guy is old and never talks sense, warnock wouldn't be at Leeds if he had to put up with rubbish of bates, I think he is on that cruise, see NileI dont think he said nothing would be happening, he just said that there would be nothing for fans to get excited about. It looks like they are trying to get players on pre-contracts, so they dont have to pay them anything until after July 1st (sound familiar).
wallyYou have Colin as a manager (anagram, check it out) and Bates as chairman and you seem surprised things are bizarre at the club.

Hi Ed

Update on Reading transfers:

Garath McCleary has completed a medical (source GetReading). It also says talks are under way BUT I know for a fact McCleary was at the Hotel last week and talking to McDermott and Nicky Hammond, so this must be loose ends or the paper just assumes that's the next step. But it's close!


Brian McDermott is off to watch Jordan Rhodes again. It doesn't mean more than that but he clearly thinks the boy can step up.


Talk with Lillstrom for forward Sigurdason have been put on hold. Reading bid £1m plus add-ons but Lillstrom want £3.5m and up front!

Ignore rumours of Wolves now thinking they can get him. The player has stated he is happy to stay in Norway or go to the Premier League.(7)(5)

Watching Skysports before and they
say Victor Moses does not want
to stay at wigan evan tho though
they are staying up. But Martinez is
fort to be interested in free agent
emile heskey any one heard out about
this?(9)(3)Sky Sports news are just getting what Moses's agent Tony Finnagan has said.

Moses has never said that he wants to leave Wigan, his agent is trying to drum up intrest so he can get a nice cut from the the transfer and signing on fee.

He may leave but I dont expect him to leave Wigan and when Martinez officialy anounces that he wont be leaving Wigan, I expect Moses to sign a new deal.

Heskey to Wigan is a non-starter... Martinez is intersted in young, up and coming players not Heskey.Yep wigan are looking to replace moses pace, skill and trickery with... heskey

11 May 2012 08:16:32
Enough of this utter tripe Kean, I cannot take this claptrap anymore, In a season and a half you have taken us from midtable to champoinship, In that time selling Samba, Jones, Kalinic, Emerton and going to loose several more in summer. Now the statments made when Venky's took over.

When sacking big sam they stated they wanted a high profile manager names such as Maradonna, Benitez. What do we get a promotion from coach to manager

We want star players the likes of Kaka, Ronildinho, Becks to name but a few. What do we get Goodwillie, Petrovic etc

We want champions league football, we get championship football

Phil Jones left because he wanted a new challange at a bigger club there will be no more losses, Samba gone, Salgardo frozen out Holliet walking hanley,lowe,robbo, the yak, dann, givet, pederson prob will all follow

That is only a few problems, yet they wonder why anger was showed towards Kean and the Venky's during games in this time you have almost destroyed our club stripped it of assets. If this was your plan from start fine, walk away now sell the club, please before its to late and rovers go under, to get back into prem league you will have to spend 20 ish million then if we go up you will have to spend 20-30 mill each season to get champs spot quite frankly you are not prepared to do this so please sell club to owner who will(9)(8)It is not kean's fault, it is the fault of your awful owners and the pathetic attitude of the fans. Your treatment of your manager has been disgusting and disgraceful...the rest of football is horrified. It's a miracle that he hasn't just walked.You can't hold Kean accountable for being stripped of your best assets. He would want to either keep them, or sell them and reinvest the profit in new players - he got neither. Why would he want to sell all your good players and not get anything from it, he would just be making his job harder!

Be angry at Venky's for it not Kean. I agree Kean isn't the best manager and doesn't give greatest confidence to players and fans, but that doesn't deserve your hate and anger, he's doing the best he can for a club in the position he is in. It's unfortunate because you should have a better manager and reinvested any profits from Samba and Jones in quality players, but Kean's heart is in the right place and he hasn't done anything but try to keep you in the prem.Not many people have that sort of money! Not in this climate anyway. Be realistic, Blackburn have had their glory years and are now on the slide. It would probably do you good to lose many of your high earning players, have back to back relegations and start again. It did Leeds Charlton and Southampton no harm in the long runLittle club with a big cash injection sooner or later it will find its level.Kaka and ronaldhiuck are you kidding yno who the phour blackburn and your stYou are at the correct level now,dont blame kean for selling players,the football that blackburn play is not that bad he is just the fall guyNot keans fault. His application was a practice. He wasn't even expecting to be considered for the job but the owners saw him and realised they wouldn't have to pay him jack st and thats why he was appointed. Absolute disgrace the treatment that Steve Kean has gotten. He put his heart into it and got fk all back from the owners so blame them not him.

Ryan Lowe of Sheffield Wednesday is believed to be interested in a move to Rotherham United after struggling to get into Wednesday's first team.(8)(19)Why have Rotherham been linked with every Wednesday player, and about 15 strikers???Theres hardly a side in L1 who wouldnt want him for the right price. He wont go to L2. More likely to see next season out at Hillsborough as its his only chance of playing in the Championship. Might not start but gets a lot of subs appearances

Liverpool - Dalglish will be given very little money to spend this summer and will look to acquire free transfer to bolster the squad.

Hoilet from Blackburn is a priority target for Dalglish, who has been warned that LFC's big spending days are over. Failure to get into the Champions League has been a key factor in this decision.

As covered in the Mirror (Headline "Dalglish stays: Liverpool boss won't be axed... but his budget will ")
but this has been on the cards since patience began to wane with Dalglish last November.

Key elements have regretted the decision to appoint Dalglish - the Cup win hasn't hidden this. Envious eyes have been cast towards Martin O'Neill at Sunderland. As predicted, the lack of patience was manifest in the lack of funds given to Kenny in January.

Dalglish will be given more time but expect Suarez to leave imminently and expect O'Neill to feature highly as a potential replacement.(11)(19)The Americans were warned off of MON, by RL. He will not manage another team owned by a US enterprise. he is also not a CL manager, he is a very good premier league Manager, but that is allHow can you say MON isnt good enough to manage a cl team? he is twice the manager dalglish is and last time i checked liverpool werent a cl team. this is coming from a newcastle fanDalglish won't be given a lot of funds because he has proven to his owners that he is useless at getting value for money. The buys of Adam, Henderson, Downing, and Carroll have shown owners that they must reign in the spending. If you compare our buys to Newcastle's, ours are poor value for money.O'neill is staying at sunderland he has only had half a season their and will be our manager for plenty of years, he won't jump ship and go to liverpool, Honestly can you at least come up with a believable manager who would come to liverpool

Forest have a transfer fee agreed and will complete the deal once the season is over.Sorry to say but hes coming back to wolves will be a good help in a championship push next yearWolves player. Will be assessed by new Wolves manager. Likelihood is that he will be retained & given a key role in the teamRetrained, he doesnt work in a bank.Guerdiora will now be staying at Wolves but if he does move it will be to Forest. But neither Forest nor Millwall could afford the £2.5m fee and his £10k wages!

Jamie Vardy going to Hull(8)(33)Is this the same James Vardy who recently signed for Leicester?If he doesnt go to his beloved swfc as he has a point to prove after being let go as a youngsterHow will this work? According to this site that is the fifth club he is signing for, will they all have him on a rota basis?Only 4 teams have been in contact with Fleetwood.. N they are Blackpool, leicster, Charlton n west brom! N with Hodgson going to England west brom looks doubtful... Lcfc are close to agreeing terms with Fleetwood and the player... Coming from the player himself in a pub in Sheffield last week

John Stones has signed for Millwall(5)(9)


11 May 2012 05:09:54
Millwall interested in:
David Goodwillie
Dan Bogdanovic
Troy deeney
Lee Barnard
Simon Gillet
Brian stock
Aron Cresswell
Kyle Bennett
Adrian marriapa
Harry Kane(7)(32)I'm afraid I can't see Spurs letting Millwall have Harry Kane again next year. After a season like he has had, they will be looking to place him at a Premiership team for the 12/13 season. This process has worked well for them over the last few years with Walker and Caulker making the step up with ease.No chance of Marriapa, heavy interest from Reading reported and also Newcastle. Besides if he was to stay in the CH why move from Watford?Marriappa and deeney to millwall?! do you know anything about football?Another millwall fan on football manager it seems


11 May 2012 02:00:24
Some of you guys talk utter s%#t. But thanks for giving me a chuckle!
Anyhow, Peterborough are rumoured to be bringing in around 6 players, yes they have listed a fair few but they are hoping that youth players make the step up. Most posh fans know this and the club has been heading in this direction for a number of years.
Boyd has a year left, but has expressed that he wants a new challenge. 1m would be a fair price.
Taylor has a year left, he thinks he can play prem.... Let's wait and see.
McCann has a year left. Still a great player but on big wages.
All 3 players I reckon will leave, but only if price is right(10)(0)People talk s whereas you just state the bloody obvious!


11 May 2012 01:32:31
Sunderlands number one transfer target is young german forward Andre Schurrle. Sunderland scouts have been watching him all season and see him as the finisher they need.(12)(5)You would need to pay at least 15m for him. If you've got that, you'd be getting a fantastic playerWanted by chelsea?


11 May 2012 00:13:51
Manchester United are looking to loan out Michael Owen to a Premier League club next season. Rumour has it, Sunderland and Swansea are interested.(14)(14)Going to be difficult to loan him out when he is on a free transferHe was offered to Reading in January but they decided against it and opted for Roberts.As someone has stated above - he's out of contract.I thought it was self-explanatory that he'd be offered a new one...Why would he be offered a new one 50K a week to sit on bench a few times a season, or sit in the stands.


11 May 2012 01:23:11
harry kane of spurs to be become millwalls highest fee paid for a player of 1.75million in transfer window.
the deal however will include a buy back clause inserted by tottenham of 2million at end of next season.(6)(25)Haha! Dream on. As I stated on a previous rumour, Millwall will find it hard to get him on loan next year, never mind on a full time basis. Try Jonathan Obika, he's ready for a shot in the Championship.As much as I would love this to be true I
cant see it happening.Even if we sold players to get that kind of money I dont think we would spend that much on one player.


11 May 2012 01:13:49
If Arsenal bring in another attacking player I can see Alex Oxlade Chamberlain rejoining Southampton on a season long loan(5)(45)Saints fan no chance hes arsenals best attacking wingerHe's playing almost every game for the gunners. Why would he be loaned out?!?!?!?
Think about itWhat nonsense!!No chance,


11 May 2012 00:55:13
Rotherham, Carlisle , and Crewe Alexandra are chasing Gainsborough Trinity playmaker Jamie Yates (23) on a free transfer this summer. The Sheffield born player is out of contract after the clubs play off final v Nuneaton on Sunday.(7)(2)We released jamie yates about 3 seasons ago doubt hed want 2 go back to rotherham


11 May 2012 00:23:57
Luke freeman is burnley bound!(9)(12)Where did you hear this
he recently came out and said hes happy at stevenage.
he also lives at home and wont move too far away


11 May 2012 00:16:25
I wish people would stop saying 3,4 or 5 million for jay rod when Burnley have said they won't sell for less than 6 million,plus we rejected a 5 million bid from saints last season

Also we havent mentioned who's staying or going, n who we are getting.

We probably will sell jay in the summer, but it will be between 6 to 9 million

Also EH will never say who he wants, also this is they Burnley way(8)(6)It's difficult. Eventually Burnley will have to accept 3-5million. He is out of contract next season, and he isnt worht 6-8 theyre asking for. They either have to lower and cash in, or risk losing him on a free next seasonThe difference is Jay Rod doesn't want to leave, he has already stated that he would be willing to sign a new contract. That is why the price is so high, because he won't be out of contract next summer as if we don't get a decent offer for him above £6million, he will just sign a new contract.I have it on very good authority that oh accepted 5.75m and he was down at St Mary's but wanted astronomical wages so cortese told him where to go!"The difference is Jay Rod doesn't want to leave, he has already stated that he would be willing to sign a new contract" Would he really say anything else?How much? German International and regular scorer in the Bundesliga, Podolski for £10m or Jay Rodriguez from a championship club for £9m. Whatever manager spends more than £4m should be immediately sacked.


11 May 2012 00:14:37
Watford want 2 key signings for next season them bieng James Collins , tomasz kuszack .
Watford team next season will look like

Hodson nosworthy Taylor mariappa
Buaben Hogg eustace
Deeney Collins Murray , subs,loach,doyley,micginn,whichelow,Iwelmo(9)(7)The signings are a possibility.. but the team is all wrong. Mariappa is quite likely to leave, and if he stayed I doubt he would be happy at left back. Deeney is our main striker, he barely scored any goals out on the wing in the past so 4-3-3 doesn't work.Mariappa is not a left back and also we're selling himI think mariappa will stay but he won't play at left back. tomasz kuszack, as much as i would love to get him i think a bigger club will snap him up. but heard lots of rumours we are after james collins although he has stated that he wants to stay at shrewsbury due to their promotion.


10 May 2012 23:36:51
to the people who say preston dont have any money we have one of the richests oweners in football,he knows he as to spend to get pne back up and will back westley in the transfer market ,so expect a lot of ins and a hell of a lot of out goings(3)(18)Youre reducing all the debts you have i highly doubt you will 'spend big'You were losing £750k a month last year...even though you have got rid of every footballer in the squad and are now looking at frees & loans, Hemmings believes that PNE will still cost him money to run.....Ridsdale is there to find a buyer for the club. Even though Hemmings is worth £500m.....PNE will be lucky to pay £3,500 a week for it's top player.....You couldnt even afford/match Jamie Vardy's wages at non league Fleetwood.

Graham Westley is now the highest paid person at PNE.....!!


10 May 2012 22:37:30
peter leven too oldham for 100k(9)(6)You dont have 100k you have to rely on free transfersWe wouldn't waste 100K on leven anyway. Players have left but Dickov won;t waste money.

Niall Caravan and Shaun Goater have held contract talks with Southend United.

The two players are said to be great friends with Bilel Moshini and said that is the reasoning behind the move.

It is well documented that Bilel Moshini grew up admiring Shaun "The Goat" Goater.(4)(11)


10 May 2012 22:19:47
Lee Hughes and Marlon King are set to sign for Rotherham.

Steve Evans has said that these two players have a great attitude and will fit into his squad with no problem at all.(17)(32)Y'know what, I wouldnt put it past Evans to sign two murderers.
wallyRotherham would not get the championships 4th highest scorer


10 May 2012 22:18:34

Isaac McLeod of Barnett to move to notts county, as he has performed well this season it will be in the fee of £1m. Heard it hear first.(4)(21)ISAAC McLeod, top playerMight have scored a few goals last season but he is lazy does'nt want to do any work certainly not worth 1 millionNo way they would pay £1m for him. NOt even worth £100k. Isn''t he out of contract also?Dont be daft hes out of contract what a load of cobblersNot only do you not know his name but he is also out of contract so I will have a million quid please ! I believe this rumour NOT !!And you even got his name wrong!

I have heard from a reliable source
that Yeovil Town are close to re signing
Chris Cohen. Should happen early next
week(4)(21)Chris Cohen has been a first team regular since 2007, he's a fans favorite, he is settled in notts, and he's out with a bad injury. Apart from that I'd say your source is spot on. (Or a derby fan)

Agent 279RubbishChris Cohen is one of forests best players and has been I juried for six months.
If he was to go it would be to lower prem, which will not happen until he has proven his fitness between now and jan.
IdiotFrom a yeovil fan, we got no chance, hes a class player and ive heard hes highly thought of at forest, huge star of future so he would be taking a mile backwards, not just a few steps


10 May 2012 21:37:39
Heard Newcastle are about to pay £4.5m for Matt Jarvis of wolves and £4m for Kevin Doyle.(8)(30)They dont really add anything to what newcastle have, and besides, there will be no deals to st james' until they know whether or not they will be playing in champions league or not so that means after the chelsea game probablyPlease can you start calling the stadium by its proper name - the sports direct arena. Matt Jarvis is destined for stoke and would be a perfect fit. It will be interesting to see if toon can see off the big boys who come calling for their stars - cisse, cabaya and tiote. If you don't make CL then they will be off and you can have a dose of the Europa cup which will guarantee you mid table next season.Jarvis to Stoke? Wake up! He'll be staying at the Wolves.


10 May 2012 21:30:06
Euell, Doherty, Alonso, Popo, Warren and Gough released by Charlton. Gough has already signed a two year contact with Bristol Rovers though andhas also featured in there 4-0 thumping against Dagenham & Redbridge.(2)(4)I dont know why this is on here it was announce by that club last week.


10 May 2012 21:28:22
kayode odejayi to be unveiled next week at ipswich town apparently the big signing jewells been looking for source twtd(5)(10)Unlucky for Ipswich as he was useless at Barnsley n couldn't put ball in an open net.Out of all the people he could buy, he 'supposedly' gets Odejayi.
Dont get me wrong he is a good player but is just not a championship standard player! You could do alot better than him with the money you have, (colchester fan)Rember what he did at Barnsley? nothing only scored the goal against Chelsea


10 May 2012 21:27:16
Right, have some Rotherham news..

After securing Nardiello who was Evans' top target he will now complete the signing of free agent midfielder Nathan Doyle from Barnsley. He is also currently in talks with two other players, one being Krystian Pearce, from Notts County, where a fee has already been agreed. The other player is winger, Lloyd Sam, who has recently been released bt Leeds United. They have also had a transfer offer accepted for a League 1 striker, which will break the clubs transfer record if it happens. This has come from a scout from a club, who has also told me that they are not at all interested in Oxford United striker James Constable..(7)(5)Lloyd Sam is a done deal. Will be announced tomorrow.I dont think james constable has any time time for that muppet evans yes he will spend big but dont forget wage cap 65% of income on players wages your crowd aint big enough to pay big wages so either administration or something dodgy and fa will punish you points deduction or something evans is not the man for you left Crawley who are now l1 why stay in l2 something is'nt quite right best of luck to Rotherham your gonna need itWhy would Lloyd Sam go the Rotherham? He has offers from Championship and top end league 1 clubs?


10 May 2012 21:24:53
Norwich to make a move for:
Rodriguez (Burnley) £4M
C Davies (Birmingham) £2 - £3.5M
Naughton (Spurs) Loan for another season
R Williams (McBoro) £4M
M Phillips (Blackpool) £3M
Eagles (Bolton) £3 - £4M(17)(28)Burnley have turned down a 5.5m offer already, so im sure they'll accept 1.5m less than that :)They may have turned down more than £4M, but remember papers always inflate fees to make the story sensational, only Burnley and Southampton know the actual amounts that were offered and rejected. The amount they will accept is also dependent on time left on contract, the shorter it is, the less they can expect to get.
Eagles £3-4M - you must be joking he might be worth £1-1.5M topsWe may get naughton, rod has much richer clubs after him. Davies poss, eagles is not in plikinton or bennetts class. Rest int good enoughBurnley's chairman has said we rejected a £5m bid last seasonDavies not leaving bcfcOh and you believe a football chairman's word that he turned down £5M last season do you ? ha ha - I have a very interesting investment opportunity to buy 10 acres of prime real estate for $10K in the Florida everglades if you are interested !

Mark McGhee is set to use his contacts in order to complete Bristol Rovers' first signing of the summer. He will snap up 19-year oldPolish striker Kamil Kaczmarz, who currently plays for Ruch Chorzow in Poland. He previously had a loan spell in the Polish Division 2 league with LKS Lodz where he scored 18 goals in 26 games. Rovers will snap him up for a small fee of around 40k.(1)(3)Work in a cafe close to the ground, and i saw this lad earlier (strong polish accent) with assistant shaun north with a rovers training top on..

hi there pompey fans,leeds supporter not sending this message to rub it in im just interested on the opinions from pompey fans .what are jason pearce and joel ward like as players?also which position is joel ward best suited to?he seems to play all over the good luck for next season pompey.(6)(3)Sour grapesWorth the money u paid, but if your thinking of fighting for promotion next season I can think of better players out there. They were regular starters for us and look where we ended up!! Even without the -10. Pearce is good in the air but struggles against pace and often gets caught out. Ward is a decent prospect but like I said theres better players at this level u could of got.From what ive seen i think their really good, and personally i would play him in midfield, eventhough he can play as a defender at times. And thanksTop class, 100% triers, never give up the fight. Pearce is tough and straightforward, will make tackles and win headers all day long. Ward shares some of these characteristics but can play a bit more. Can play in defence, out wide or in the middle of midfield. He is a good box to box player but I think he sees his long term career as a defender. Good business by Leeds and as a Pompey fan, sad to see either leave. Best of luck to them though.


10 May 2012 20:56:01
Curtis Davies deal to Norwich City is 90% completed(20)(16)How many centre backs do norwich need?! they hav around 7 (at a guess) already so i doubt they ll sign anotherNo way not this early on, he said he isn't leaving Birmingham and Norwich have enough defendersI believe Norwich will buy another center back during the summer because I believe he will let Ward and Barnett go but offer Whitbread a new 2 year contract, and look to add one more CB for cover.
Lambert will look to make Ryan Bennett and Daniel Ayala his 1st choice CB paring next season, both in their early 20's with bags of potential for the future.


10 May 2012 20:53:36
Portsmouth are set to lose out on striker Izale McLeod and four players are very close to leaving Fratton Park.
McLeod is set to sign a one year deal with Werder Bremen in Germany after impressing the Bundesliga side in a training session this week.
QPR are keen on bagging defender Joel Ward in a £500,000 deal that could take the former Bournemouth man to London on a three year deal.
Dave Kitson is also set to leave Pompey to join Ipswich. Manager Paul Jewell is wanting new attacking reinforcements and sees the 32 year old as the right man.
Another set to leave the League 1 club is Greg Halford. The former Colchester defender is set to sign a two year deal with Crystal Palace, in a transfer worth £200,000.
Finally, Israeli defender Ben Haim will sign a three year deal with Scottish champions Celtic.(3)(22)


10 May 2012 20:49:17
Portsmouth will have new owners in place before the football league annual meeting on the 2nd june. Two very interested buyers one of which i have been told is looking very promising. Rumour is Michael Appleton will be given 5 million to spend and will only have to sell 1 maybe 2 more players of his current squad, this is only to keep the club afloat until 2nd June those 2 players are likely to be Liam Lawrence and Hayden Mullins. PUP PPU(2)(30)And now back to reality! Pompey are still no where near being taken over. All the players still have to go.Read the bbc website trevor what his name said ur in danger of going bust by end of the month at the football leagues egmBye byeLove it how people think pompey will fold i know they wont, reality check southampton will go down next year :)First of all, I very much doubt an owner would buy a club worth a few million, chuck £60+million at it to wipe the debt. AND give £5million transfer money (in league 1? LMAO) to a club that barely gets enough attendance to pay half the support staff. Really you pompey fans are ridiculousI think some Pompey fans need a reality check! Alot of them just still dont get it. You might not fold, but theres a very good chance you will.Portsmouth have no chance of being brought and will be liquadated on 4th JuneKeep the banter coming love it ^^ play up pompey!!Not Play up Pompey just PAY up PompeySorry for Pompy fans, I know from experience that these things always go down to the wire. Only at the very last minute will a deal come through if it does at all. Here's hopingMore comments from people who do not understand what they are talking about! - The strategy for Pompey, like every other club in administration, is to agree a CVA. In effect their £60m debt will be reduced to somehing like 15p in the pound. i.e. to £9m. The remaining parachute payment from the Premier League will then cover this lower debt figure. So, whoever buys the club would essentially buy it debt free. Why this as opposed to liquidation? If liquidated, parachute money is no longer paid out by the Prem and all players contracts are void, so no money would be received from their sales. So about £20m would be lost with the only offsetting value being the worth of the stadium which the council has designated for sports use only i.e. can not be 'developed' at least for a considerable number of years if not for ever. So, do you get it now?? That's why Portsmouth Football Club will be bought and why the right owner can rebuild and make it profitable.So despite the previous two owners making financial promises they couldnt keep, Portsmouth fans STILL get excited at yet another take over rumour by an unknown. Deja Vu!Pompey had already agreed a CVA in their last Admin stint, and had their huge debt reduced..However they didnt make a single payment and now that CVA agreement is null and void. Now they have to try to agree a CVA 2 which would include the old debts with the new so the old debts will get even less this time round. All of this has to be agreed by the creditors which wont be straight forward. Saying whoever buys the club will get it debt free is stupid. The club have cheated so many compaines, people and CHARITIES out of alot of money..Even the administrator has said this week liquidation is still likely and the fans takeover could be the only feesable option, but they are falling very short with that too. It will go down to the wire but its a much much bigger mess than what most Pompey fans realise, most just dont get it.


10 May 2012 20:49:00
Leicester City have confirmed the signing of 19 year old striker Jacob Blyth from Leamington. The striker who plays for Leamington in the South Premier division scored 17 goals and goes into Leicester's development team.(13)(1)I was speaking to him on facebook hes so happy he said he will probably be in the U21s then he is going to build his way into the 1st team

southampton are preparing a double swoop for BCFC Mutch and Redmond - rumoured 8m(18)(7)Didn't Manchester City want Redmond for £15m? so why would he go to Southampton for less than £8m? if you are going to post anything on here at least make it convincing if your going to lie.He isnt lying, it came from one of those "Agents" on Twitter...So if anyone is lying its that guy not the poster

10 May 2012 20:43:46
Swindon are set to complete the singing of three people in the next three days but are also set to lose out on two other.
The first is thought to be Walsall striker Ryan Jarvis. The 25 year old is set to cost the club a nominal fee and will sign a two year deal.
Secondly, Nigerian forward Kelvin Etuhu has been told by his club Portsmouth that he will be available as a free agent and will sign a one year deal at Town.
Finally, Notts County striker Lee Hughes will be the 'marquee' signing for Paulo Di Canio's side as he aims to bring in full houses every week. Hughes will sign a two year deal.
Former Derby players Lee Holmes and Jay McEveley have both turned down permanent deals with the club after their loan spells. Holmes is very close to signing for York City as he wants to stay closer to home and full back McEveley will sign a two year deal with Rotherham United as he would like to still live in South Yorkshire.(4)(21)You know Hughes is 36 and still has a year left on his deal at Notts County?Are you having a laugh Holmes to York City and McCleverly to fat boy Evans team i dont think so. Get a life you person who wrote this.No way will Di Canio sign Lee Hughes he is despised by Town fans and he's old and there are better players out there than having that person at our club.Lee Holmes is thought to have second thoughts at being at Swindon and is open to offers....but no way is York City on his horizon. Quality player and at least div 2 and probably Div 1

Leicester are looking to bring in Southampton winger/striker Guly Do Prado for £3.5 million.

Rumours also around about Nile Ranger moving to the foxes for £2 million.(11)(16)For 3.5 million I'll pay his way thereDoubt that is true, Guly do prado is like 30 something and hes rubbish why would we sign him for nearly £4m pound thats just madness get your facts right.Guly is not rubbish he's scored 11 goals playing mainly at right midfield he's just not consistent but when he's on form he's a very good player. Problem is alot of saints fans don't rate him but that's mainly fans who don't watch him enoughLeicester have so much money, not an object. Nigel Pearson needs a brazilian ;)Do Prado is out of contract in the summer, so 3.5 million would be stupidity, then again this is Leicester fansDo Prado is out of contract NEXT summer. He wont be leaving Saints this coming season anyway, he will get his chance in the Premier League.That makes it 7 now for the number of strikers Leicester are supposed to be signing, should be plenty of goals at the crisp bowl.

Walsall looking to trial Ryan Moss from
Dorchester of Blue Square South(6)(3)He doesn't play for them anymore!He has been playing for AFC Totton however he is not under contract and would be an added bonus to anyone's team at that level. He has a real hunger and given that he is not that tall it is a real surprise in the amount of headers he wins.Would expect him to go to Havant & Waterlooville given his friendship with Stuart Ritchie and that he has just signed on to manage the Hawks on a 2 year deal.


10 May 2012 18:33:03

Norwich to move for Redmond and Davies(20)(14)You wish! Brum were quoting £10m for Redmond in January. Like you can raise even£7m? LOLIt's not fee's that are our problem mate just wages and 'BRUM?' need the money cos they're skint soooo....Birmingham aren't skint, (not a brum Birmingham fan either). They are in a similar situation to Norwich. Enough money to be average in the leagues they are in, but need outside investment to achieve more.Lol brum not skint, admin at start of next seasonBirmingham players will be sold at less than they would like, their backer was arrested for fraud and his funds frozen, so yes now they will have to offload many of the big wage players, parachute payment is reduced, revenue is reduced, and to avoid administration they will sell.
£10M Redmond? get real no one will pay that for him, Birmingham can quote what they like, just like I can offer a 15yr Fiat Uno on E Bay for £100K, but no ones going to buy it.

Wolves looking into swapping Matt jarvis for gary hooper from celtic(2)(33)Lol at that jarvis might as well stay at wolvesSo Hooper would go to the Champiuonship when he can join the Premiership?
You Wolves fans have got to get used to the fact you are now SECOND tier.Jarvis might as well play in the chumpionshipLol,where do you find themLol hooper is only good in spl cause its a rubbish leagueCan't se any wolves fan for a second saying this we do not want or need hooper,yeah jarvis might be off in the summer but he wont be going far ..!!!Jelavic played in the SPL and Hooper outscored him, Hooper played in the Championship and outscored 35mil Andy Carrol.Lol "Hooper is only good in spl cos its a rubbish league". Jelavic scored 17 in spl then vent to Everton and continued the same goalscoring form

Hearing from quite a few Charlton fans that they're interested in Steve Jones(3)(8)


10 May 2012 16:31:43
Dani Pacheco moving back to Norwich City(5)(12)Definitely makes sense, he was very popular when he was here on loan and he loves the club. He will also be able to add a bit of foreign flair which we need and he's also mates with Ayala so maybe that'll help both of them settle in well and therefore we'll get the most out of both of them.Totally agree just player we've missed all season if anyone


10 May 2012 16:27:25
Yeovil youth team player Elliott Melish is set to sign a 2 year contract with Manchester United in a deal that could rise to a fee of 2 million pounds.(11)(7)I thought he had a leg crippling injury that would set him back 8 months? are man u prepared for that risk


10 May 2012 16:25:21
Yeovil manager Gary Johnson has expressed an interest in resigning Leister goalkeeper Chris Weale.(9)(2)


10 May 2012 16:15:46
Let me clear things up, Charlton will be one of the teams with the most money, we have two wealthy owners that have hundreds of millions as well as and 'Mr X' owner that is Kevein Cash that has £600-700 million alone for Charlton, it is rubbish that we have to sell, it is just Palace fans trying to ake it look like that Palace have money when infact they do not!(2)(15)We have money, but you're wildly overestimating it mate. We're comfortable but in no way will Cash - a shady character - invest that heavily. He's seeking to invest now, and sell when we're in the Premier League eventually, for a decent profit. So we think.Charlton may be wealthy but that doesn't make them an attractive club to join. Poor club poor fansPalace don't have money, and although I doubt charlton have that much, I am sure it is more than palace...Interesting to see everyone jumping on the Charlton band wagon. Didnt hear you all when in League One.

P.s.:All us Palace fans forgot who you were along time again. Rivals? You must be having a laugh!Charlton are as rich as palace and it's about putting the money in the club not having the money HF05Palace are a club going nowhere and will sell their best players. No ambition, nothing club. Bring on the "ultras" and cheerleaders looooooool joke.GROW UP!No one knows the identity of Charlton's owners, so I dont see how you can say they have £700m. The new fiarplay rules mean that no club can go on a spending spree and go unpunished. So grow up and stop this childish bickering.Under FFP rules, owners/chairmen or investors can only invest a maximum of £6m. So even if your board had billions they are not allowed to invest it. Check out facts before posting.Palace no ambition?? didn't we beat utd at old trafford?Let's be honest, which Palace fan can honestly say they care for Charlton, begging for rivalry."""Under FFP rules, owners/chairmen or investors can only invest a maximum of £6m. So even if your board had billions they are not allowed to invest it. Check out facts before posting."""

That is why ground sponsorship etc has been used to pump money into clubs by owners. I think the £6m limit is borrowing, I could be wrong.


10 May 2012 16:04:32
Crystal Palace will loan Chelsea youngster Nathaniel Chalobah on a season long loan and sign Aleksander Tunchev with Southampton signing Anthony Gardner this summer on a free.(4)(15)Anthony Gardner is not signing for Southampton.Palace fan here, Anthony is out of contract in the summer and wont be signing a new deal. So this is possibleThought Gardner signed a two year contract last summer?


10 May 2012 15:46:43
Norwegian Stalle Solbakken is the shock choice to be the new manager of Wolves. He has come highly recommended by Roy Hodgson one of his former managers. He has had a very succesful spell in charge of Copenhagen in Denmark that led to a less succesful stint in Germany with Cologne. Although this will be a huge risk by the Wolves board they seem keen to give Solbakken a chance in England. You heard it here first. Get your money on this ASAP. Although i do believe the bookies are ahead of the game with this one and his odds have shortened dramatically in the last 24 hrs. {Ed025's Note - he nearly took cologne down mate..(11)(1)Cologne did go downCologne did go down , they also did not even give him s season to prove himself , they gave him no funds to bring in players also.Cologne went through four managers in as many season, the club are in a bad state before he took over.Ed havnt they had like 25 managers in 25 years n that job is poison the amount of problems he had 1 was poldoski weather he was leaving or not 2, 3 was the board im sure theres more but 1 bad spell dont make you a bad manager he wont loads of titles with copenhangen beat ajax n barca in chapions league dont well in norway i think he would be a good choice {Ed003's Note - Really don't know that much about him mate,but you raise good points,I don't know about point 2 that's why it was edited out but thanks for the input}


10 May 2012 16:01:40
Norwich signings:

Done...(10)(21)Oh and Zaha sorryProbably decent targetsYou wish. DoneWe don't have to wish?Naughton will not leave spurs


10 May 2012 15:58:26
Northampton town to announce some new signings sometime during June.(7)(4)I think Northampton will be a dark horse in the promotion push next season with Boothroyd in charge along with Rotherham - Rovers - Chesterfield and the teams this season that miss out in the play offs as for Oxford next season will be the same as this season start well and fade away in the last third of the season.


10 May 2012 15:53:54
I know from source that WBA have made Nigel Adkins their number one manager choice and he wants the job, only stumbling block is he may have to resign from Southampton to push the move through!(5)(29)Why would he want to go to West Brom? Below average premiership team. May as well stay put with Southampton and see how the season goes. Stupid rumour.Seriously? you have no chance hahaThats hilarious! No way will that happen. He has already stated 2 weeks ago he wants to stay for the long term. Stop smoking that stuff, its bad for you.You can tell when the kids come out from school can't you?
Look a little east of Southampton and you will find your new manager.Dreamers lolMighty Southampton eh? Jokers who do you think you are, ideas above your stationSauce ......urs must be the brown stuff m8 ,,full of itThis won't ever happen. Albion wouldn't go for such an inexperienced manager at this point in time, but I can see why Adkins might jump at the job. Look of Southampton for the new manager? WBA rated Appleton, but he would not be considered for the same reasons that Adkins won't be.I have also heard from sources close to WBA that he would be very interested in the Vaccancy. And believes Southampton will not have the resources to remain in the top flight1. Nigel Adkins would only leave Saints for a far bigger side. West Brom are a few years ahead of Saints, but they aren't a much bigger side and they won't be breaking out of mid-table any time soon.

2. Nigel Adkins is a man of principle. He didn't resign from Scunthorpe to take the Saints job and he won't resign from Saints either.

3. Enjoy negotiating with Nicola Cortese

4. Take the m27 eastbound. The manager there will be grateful for being rescued from that impossible job.1,2,3,4 you are completely wrong. Adkins is on the way out, strange move I agree. West Brom are light years ahead of Southampton, and I am a neutral Portsmouth fanAnyone agreeing with this post is simply expressing their ignorance of Southampton's position. 'Will not have the resources to remain in top flight'.. Incidentally, Albion's highest home league gate in the Prem last season was less than Southampton's average in the Championship.We dont want adkins I've watched southampton play a few times this year and it ain't preety!


10 May 2012 15:46:28
Krasic is a done deal. Great friends with Anton. Can't wait. URZ(5)(10)To which club? {Ed025's Note - maybe qpr?Why would he go to qpr a team who will be down near the bottom again when he could go to spurs arsenal or liverpoolHe's on about Reading, and he's another dreamer. I wish it was over 24's only on here!!Dear god, the guy hasnt even taken over Reading yet and already all these signings are going to happen!Since when was a 25th birthday the dawn of maturity?


10 May 2012 15:44:55
teams to go down next season my VIEW 3d from bottom will be wigan then reading then at the bottom will be the mighty southampton(7)(26)I agree ^^Reading and Southampton not favourites to go down. Favourites to go down will be teams who tread water in the prem and don't invest in their squads (e.g. Bolton Blackburn and Wolves this year).

When will people recognise that when teams get promoted from the championship (or any league) they already have a very strong backbone to their squads that you need to get promoted and win consistently, they have vast finances for investment, maximum capacity support generated from promotion, confidence and momentum.

I am not saying any newly-promoted team will stay up, but to immediately write off 2/3 of them is massively ignorant given recent seasons promoted teams have had.Now this guys really bright, isn't he? All Premiership clubs to trim first team squad to 25 and many weeks before we know which 25 will be with which club yet this guy (or maybe Mystic Meg) knows how it will all pan out? Example: RVP moves from Arsenal, and a mass exodus follows, but this guy can predict all this?
Get real.WOW i thought people would wait untill at least pre-season to say Wigan are going to be relegated, AGAIN!

Get it into your head they aint going down!Plus we all now know that it is impossible to relegate wigan. ps, werent southampton supposed to get relegated last season?WOW are bubble has burst not even started yet


10 May 2012 15:37:40
Blackburn keeper Paul Robinson my cousin, just got told my dad yesterday that roy hodgson had called him and wanted a meeting.. and with it being 7/1 on betfair.. i know where i'd stick a fiver or two.

100% no joke(2)(19)Since he's your cousin can you ask him would he rejoin Leeds united cause lonergan and Robinson would be an amazing goalkeeper line up :-)If it was true you would put all of your money on it


10 May 2012 15:15:29
Ipswich defender Aaron Cresswell has agreed to join championship rivals Millwall.(2)(15)Should join morecombe more his level uselessHow is he useless?

He had a superb season, you don't know what you are talking about.

Not to mention he has recently signed a long term contract.Cresswell brilliant he was by far one of our best players this seasonHa ha very amusingNot useless a very good prospect in our rubbish team and no way would he go to Millwall and they could not afford the 2m plus he's now worth


10 May 2012 15:10:05
Just been up at the Mad Stad shop and saw Cameron Jerome! Very excited if we could pull that off!!(7)(10)We could do much better then him. No thanks.No you haven't, I work In the shop and was there all day today and no one even mentioned his name


10 May 2012 15:09:43
Charlton are looking to sign some pace/skill in the midfield. Chris Powell has been looking at Joe Cole; Joe Cole has stated that he 'wants to return to first team football in London'. Liverpool are asking for around £6million; Chris Powell has been pondering about making an offer, which he feels that Joe can fulfil that price-tag. Joe Cole has said that 'I will take a wage-cut to play first-team football'. This wage-cut is said to be 33.3%. Good reliable source.(1)(31)Oh dear, some deluded charlton fans on hereI apologise for this particular deluded guy. My word it's... NO. We aren't going to sign anyone who'll see us as a step down.Hes on about 80k at liverpool so you re saying you d b able to pay around 53.6k a week? wowHave u bin on them fuuney fags again chalton will strugle joe cole is playin CL football with lille some people on hear are in dream land wake upAnd the fact that Chris Powell is still on his holiday has no bearing? Admins pls stop this idiot.

Bristol City to sign stephen mcmanus from middlesborough(14)(2)Hope so. great player!There seems to be a phantom poster who reckons Bristol City have found a new sheik to back them. Apparently they are buying everyone.Dont worry about our finances little man people think they know so much about bristol city must b a poor little gashead


10 May 2012 14:59:20
Any Oxford rumours in or out Ed? {Ed025's Note - no mate..(3)(0)Yep, you're the smallest club in the Thames Valley. Even Oxford City are catching you up now! LOL

I know 12 Oxford fans that have bought season tickets at Reading for next season. Jumping ship and you canny blame them! lolAh a Swindon Town supporter, most likely....Well, hope your investors dont get fed up with you lot because when they do, and they will, you will have mega problems financially. Shame!The old Swindon in debt chestnut!! Sorry mate, the Swindon Board are not short of a pennty or two and the parent Company has already swallowed up last season debt!! Now we come to Oxfords money it or not there is and AWFUL lot rumours coming to light that there are REAL problems behind the scenes, You have some serious money issues. You also have a fanbase split over your Manager despite the fact he took you back to league football, the problem being that many Oxford fans still believe they should still be a major football force...the truth is you are now a small club, Wilder is doing a good job in difficult circumstances and this season he pulled off some great signings...however the plan has failed and you are now going to struggle, Not having a laugh just saying as it is. Kassam will remain stubborn over your 3 stand stadium which will only make things worse. If Wilder keeps you any where near the mid table again next season he will have done another good job...and acheived the boards aim of staying in the it or not that is the sole ambition of your club at the moment, another drop into the non league could spell the end of your club. Mind you, if it happens you could always merge with Oxford City...they seem to be moving in the right direction!!

I'm a leeds fan and would like to know how likely George Boyd is to join Leeds? I know he is on the transfer list but not sure if there is any rumour on your end which club he will go to.(5)(14)Terrible player, so hopefully this will happen.He is coming, We think its gonna be announced JulyWe havent been linked anywhere that I've seen with anyone from Peterborough, Boyd included. I agree that this is strange, as they have some very good players looking for a way out, of whom Boyd is just one. Lewis, Jones, Taylor, Ajosé and McCann could all leave London Road.
wallyHeard here around boro that boyd is interesting leeds,lewis and jones are out of contract. No great loss,both seem to have gone backwards. Ajose,bad attitude apparently. Taylor,wont sign new contract,wants to play in prem. WBA are supposed to be chasing him.


10 May 2012 14:08:54
Brighton to sign jonjo shelvey and Raheem Sterling on loan from Liverpool {Ed025's Note - rubbish!(6)(25)


10 May 2012 13:52:44
Reading takeover by the Thames Sport Investment group halted after it emerges Zingarevich only has £30mill which is not considered enough by Madejski. Madejski was initially promised Anton's father, Boris, would be involved. However, due to the recession, Zingarevich senior has lost over 15% of his wealth, and so no longer wishes to throw money at his son's favourite football team.

RP(11)(10)That might be true but for the fact that TSI is a group of investors so it's not just Zongarevich Snr and Jnr. The hold up is due to The Premier League taking their time due to the Portamouth situation. They want to make sure they are the right people.Also Anton's favourite team is Zenit. He was educated in Reading which is his link to the town.Oh dear!
Perhaps it would have been wise to wait until the whole deal was complete?HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHow would the Reccession effect Boris? He is a russian billionaire. If Anton has 30 million in the bank then you need to check again. Anton is a private investor so it will be near impossible to know his wealth. Reports say he is worth 500 million. I bet your just a jealous fan.Unfortunately not true for all the people saying this, I recently read an article on how the Zingarevich family has been doing well in the recession. The deal is still going through.


10 May 2012 14:58:08
Watford are going to try their hardest to sign Jonathon Hogg, who had a season long loan from Aston Villa.(1)(8)Poorly checked facts - Hogg joined Watford last summer for an undisclosed fee on a 3 year deal, so he wnot be coming back to the Villa.He signed from Villa last summer you numpty! "Hogg joined Football League Championship club Watford for an undisclosed fee on 27 August 2011, signing a three-year contract"Can anyone shed any light on the constant rumours of Ben Marshall leaving leicester due to a fall out with the manager ?Watford permantly signed him :LThis is an ongoing joke on one of the Watford forums. Hilarious isn't it! NOT.


10 May 2012 14:57:05
Watford will be stepping up their interest in Wolves midfielder Micahel Kightly, who is out of contract in the summer. Kightly is holding out for a premiership move, though.(4)(14)Wrong wrong wrong. he is not out of contract in the summer.Yep, next summer he's out of contract..also he wouldn't go to Watford, he's quality.Hmm bit hard when its next summer n he will get offered a new contract n hes already said hes staying no matter whatSo why is he slumming it in Wolverhampton - get used to it guys - you are in the same division as Watford nowYes, he is quality, that's why he will be leaving rudderless Wolves.He was rumoured to be heading to West Brom with jerome thomas and cash ,that was before hodgson left though.


10 May 2012 14:56:08
None of you read Sky Sports I presume.. Peterborough aren't extending McCann's contract at the end of the season..(1)(3)We do, we just don't give a crap about PeterboroughIf you didn't give a crap about Peterborough why would you read their SkySports article in the first place? Think about what you say before you try and get cocky little boy.


10 May 2012 14:41:28
according to a couple of agents on twitter southampton are preparing a double swoop for birminghams nathan redmond and jordan mutch(6)(14)As good as that would be, I doubt we would be willing to pay what Birmingham would want for Redmond.Oh come on, Redmond will go much higher than Southampton he is quality! I would love to have him at the Villa lolSeen the same tweets. Good signings if true.What do agents do?
Try to get their clients placed in top clubs, especially when their current ones are in financial difficulties.
Like the BBC, they are trying to make the news, rather than report it. Doesn't mean that Saints have any interest at all.Villa are a great club arnt they look where u are in the league u couldnt afford redmond where as saints could what does that tell u enough said worst and most boring club in the midlands
coyrI've heard that SFC will table around 10m for the bothYou can have jordan Mutch his passing is shocking even for the championship!


10 May 2012 14:41:05
Middlesbroughs boss Tony Mobray has been spotted at Bristol Rovers this week. Its reported that he is interested in there goalkeeper and midfielder Carrayol.(6)(8)He was at the Dagenham game to watch the Daggers keeper and Carayol and Woodards from Rovers.


10 May 2012 14:34:00
I love all the jealous fans on this page who consistantly put Southampton down. To all you that told us we were a flash in the pan last year the last word is ours. It's called Promotion. Adkins will sign whom he thinks is right for the club. It will be done behind closed doors. Oh and we did it all on a shoestring compared with other clubs whinging on this page!! COYR!(21)(12)Well said mate Southampton best side along
with Reading that i saw last season both
deserved promotion and good luck next season .barnsley fc fan

Barnsley FC FanAgreed. We've had 7 years of c and worked very hard and stuck by our club through it all. No-one is going to successfully burst our bubble so we'll continue to sing, back our teamand be
positive. No apologies.Shoestring o.O you are in the top five for the most spent -_-He will signe who he is able to signe with the limited number of players willing to come to the club .he wont get the players he wants .he will have to pick the best from a bad bunch and no other prem club wantsPost above - Shouldnt you be doing your homework instead of being on here? Is it English homework by any chance?Top five spenders maybe but remember we sold Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for 12 mil raising to 15 mil so yes we spent less then we had come in.
Dont get me wrong would of love to of seen Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stay, in fact there might be a slight chance now we are in the prem we might get him back on loan.Didnt Southampton have a loan of over £33m wiped out by Markus Liebherr 's wife when he died. Most (if not all) of your players are on top Championship wages, which will now increase and start you back on the road to financial ones jealous......we just dont like bigheads^What a muppet. How can you use unsubstantiated rubbish to try and put Saints down then claim Saints are bigheads?!
We got a PRE-EXISTING loan wiped out from when we went into administration years ago and hit rock bottom. We then underwent financial re-structuring to ensure we were financially stable. Kindly the Lieberhhs allowed us a clean slate to start from, but didn't irresponsibly invest in us and put us on a road to "financial ruin" as you put it.

For our league position we actually had the relative LOWEST cost per player in wages for our position in the league. Our wages averaged mid-table championship because we purchased the majority of our players when we were a mid league 1 club, when we had the hindsight to purchase championship quality players and build to get to the prem from an early stage, thus avoiding having to massively invest and bring in loads of players this year.

And people saying we had one of the top five spenders need an education. The important fact is NET TRANSFERS. We had the best net transfers in the division and ended up around +£10million for our transfer activities in our promotion season.

And people saying we won't have any attraction in the transfer market are talking out their ae. I'd rather go to a club with some of the best, if not the best, training facilities and stadium in the country. With stadium sell outs at every game, sensible financial investment into the club, ambition to get into Europe and the best youth academy in the country looking for a stable future. When what do rival clubs offer? Languishing in the lower reaches of the prem, no real investment, st facilities, half full stadiums, no long term ambitions. You do the math and you will realise Southampton is a far more attractive offer than a lot of prem clubs. Not to mention we have one of the best scouting networks and chief executives in the country who will get good deals and get quality players that no other club has even looked at.

I'm not even being arrogant, it's the truth. Who knows where we will finish next season, could get relegated or could get top half. But we have as good of a chance as any club outside the top 10 in the prem of staying up.Southampton spent a lot more than Reading, who also had to sell their top players in Shane Long and Matt Mills.OMG Saints had a 5 year plan and would always spend what they thought it would take to get us to the Premier league.
Markus Liebherr along with Cortese are the best things to happen at Saints for a long time. Cortese is a very clever man which is why AC Milan recently wanted his services, he will not spend any money we have not got, we have been in the ST before and there is no way Cortese will allow that to happen again. We are not big headed about getting promoted, just happy.
Anyway why are you Pompey fans so concerned about what state our club is in. I think you have your own club to be concerned about, just concentrate on that.Southampton spent a lot more than Reading, who also had to sell their top players in Shane Long and Matt Mills.
in the past we have always had to sell our top players ie..Bale, Wallcott etc... However AOC we did not have to sell money was the main factor this time which is why we were able to hold out for the best price possible. He choose to leave.
We continue to develope top youth players and have got some top ones coming through again Luke Shaw, James Ward-Prowse, Calum Chambers our aim is to hold on to these players."Southampton spent a lot more than Reading, who also had to sell their top players in Shane Long and Matt Mills"

The only way you can quantify the influx of player quality compared to the outflux of player quality is judging the net transfer activity. Southampton had the highest net transfer gain in the league - we sold the most compared to the money we spent. Reading sold a couple of decent players but no one outstanding and then brought in similar transfer value to Southampton (Saints approx £1million more, which is nothing nowadays) but Southampton sold £10million more than Reading. So shut up with your moaning about Reading spending so little yet selling so much because you no nothing about that, it is what Saints have done for the past 7 years, selling over £50million and signing £10million back.


10 May 2012 14:04:35
Crystal Palace target Jose Zamora has expressed his desire to move to England paving the way for the Real Madrid player to move to Selhurst Park this summer.

Coventry striker Gary McSheffrey is also attracting the club, the striker is keen to remain a championship player and his future could lie at SE25.

Former Crystal Palace academy product Daniel Johnson who moved to Aston Villa could also return to the club on a free transfer as he has been deemed surplus to requirements.(4)(5)Mcsheffrey is a Coventry fan born round the corner from the ground and has already stated he is staying as he wants to lead the club back up. He will also be captain he won't be leaving.Johnson is top quality.
Won't join Crystal Palace! pfftWhat makes you think he wont join Palace.. have you seen the youngest they have and are bringing through? Jealousy will get you no where.Johnson signed a new one year deal in March, so why would he be available on a free get real + massive palace fan and have never heard of this kid

'Apparently' Derby County are looking to sign Joel Lynch from Nottingham Forest for a free transfer in the summer for cover in the defense.(8)(13)Stupid derby fans.

do you honestly believe lynch would 1. come to you and 2. be a back up??Cover?? Yeah right, he'll walk straight into your first team if you were fortunate enough to get him!Think I'd rather have Darren Moore back. A lot of your team seem to be leaving on a free, may be they've seen the light. saying that you'll just throw more money at it!

Lewis Grabban to Peterborough. Taylor going to watford so DFerguson needs some strike power. Borough preparing to pay 1mil for him(10)(11)I admit that I would LOVE Taylor to join us, and it would be a decent move for him... but can't help thinking that another Championship team would offer him more wages. Fingers crossed....If Boyd is going to Leeds for 1. Then Taylor is worth 2.5 for a starting price!Ant going to happen. Posh have about 2 to 3 mill to spend to try and get between 12 and 14 players as they only have 8 first teams players left after a big clear out!U can have him straight awayTaylor has one year left on his contract. No one will pay anywhere near £2.5m for him.

Not saying Watford will get him but I doubt we'd offer more than £750k - simply because we cannot afford more.

Coventry - With pressure growing on the club, a number of players are set to leave. Clingan has rejected a new deal and Cranie is likely to do the same.

The Council are refusing to negotiate a rent reduction with the club for the Ricoh and the club cannot submit accounts until the rent is reduced. As a result, Coventry remain under a transfer embargo (doesnt affect sales).

The Council leader has demanded that Coventry reduce its wage bill first. Consequently, the entire squad has been made available. Gael Bigirimana will leave for Burnley for £500,000 and Conor Thomas will leave for a similar sum to Ipswich. Richard Keogh is a target for Bolton for £1 million.

High wage earners like Gary McSheffrey have been told they can leave for free, if they find a club willing to sign them.(9)(15)Richard keogh is going to join ipswich deal set to done next week


10 May 2012 12:23:14
Everton will be forced to sell players again this summer, with Rodwell and Barkley the likely players to be sold, in order to generate funds for Moyes.

Everton need to sell a player a year to service the debt and to generate further revenue, more than one player will be sold on.

The club think that significant revenue can be realised from the sale of 2 young talents, sufficient revenue to appease Moyes and to allow him to spend between £5-10 million in the summer(13)(7)This is untrue, without any sales, moyes has been told he will have a 20 mill transfer budget. {Ed025's Note - who told you that?Absolute nonsense. Even the most optimistic Everton fan knows there is no money to spend. {Ed025's Note - well...very littleTo the original poster if you sell 2 first teamers to generate some mone to buy new players, surely you need to buy two more to replace those you sold so instead of buying 2 now you need four. four players with only 5-10 million to spend your not going to be getting the kind of players your losing! think about what your posting

tommoThe 20mill funding was the price for moyes staying. knowing the man, if the club do not deliver, he would walk, but he will get the funds.


10 May 2012 12:27:07
Spurs have conceded that they will lose either Bale or Modric this summer. Redknapp is keen to retain both players but both players have indicated that they want to leave White Hart Lane.

Levy will play hard ball with any potential club but the realisation is that the sale of one will raise a huge sum of money for Harry to spend over the summer.

Bale is known to want to leave for Spain and Modric is keen on a move to Chelsea.(21)(13)Modric has not spoken since last summer about his desire to leave, you reckon he'll go chelski when they lose to munichComplete nonsense, Spurs have conceded nothing of the sortNeither will go to London clubs. Chelsea aren't looking attractive to play for unless they make several big signings this summer. Arsenal won't splash out on the transfer fee for either.

Only clubs that can finance the deal and attract either are Manchester clubs or Spanish clubs (real and barca). Can see modric going to spain, can see bale staying in the UK.

So small number of potential clubs to move to for me...
Man City and United for Bale
Real and Barca for Modric

If they move anywhere.. which I doubt they will.

Millwall are said to be interested in signing Crystal Palace central midfielder Mile Jedinak, Kenny Jackett is looking to provide cover for Abdou, Trotter and Wright
No chance.Jog on!
Haha jedinak is probably better than all 3! Never gonna happen.

Jedinak better then them 3 please he would struggle to make the bench at millwall with the 3 of them better then him and creating a lot of intrest from premier league in trotters case. Palace fans need to get out of bed and relise they are more delegation candidates rather then promotion(2)(4)

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbary has
set his sights on making Southampton
man Guly Do Prado his first summer. He
is expected to be worth around 2 million
pounds. They can expect competition
from Nottingham Forest for the striker
who netted 15 goals in a promotion
winning season.(5)(21)£2m?! When do you want him delivered?I think guly de prado is immense however we have no moneyWe'll throw in Barnard, Chaplow and Holmes for that money too!Forest havent got £20 to spend on a player nevermind £2m. Do you actually keep up to date with football NEWS.?Sorry, but this one will be a non starter.

Part of Guly's problem this year is he is way ahead on many of the Saints team. Fans either love him or hate him, and a lot of the criticism that he has received has been overly harsh. Adkins however can see that he has the quality to play in the prem, and I am certain the he'll do well playing with better quality players that we'll hopefully bring in this summer.I'll drive him up there


10 May 2012 10:16:33

Sky State Charlton Are Ready To Offer Francois Zoko A contract when his contract at Carlisle ends Very Soon They Also Say He Rejected Several Re-newels From Carlisle.

And Dont get critical Its A Good Source Look It Up Yourself.

Yes, he is on free transfer.
Yes, clubs will be interested.
But no, he hasn't rejected any offers of a renewed contract from Carlisle.

They offered him one on Sunday, and negotiations are yet to start. He's given Carlisle first billing, and has talked to no other clubs. He is Carlisle's to lose.


Hang on, what? Zoko is publically quoted as saying that he offered to send clubs videos of him playing to coax them into offering him a deal at the end of the season. If that's not a player in dialogue with other clubs, then I'm a fish with legs.

Sorry, what quote is this? He never made any public comments about that video on YouTube; it was his agent who posted it. Zoko himself has revealed to the News & Star that he has not, as of yet, talked to any other clubs over a contract offer. Believe him or not, that's the only info availbale. End of.(7)(1)


10 May 2012 10:41:01
According to the Daily Mail, Leeds are set to sign Joel Ward, while Cardiff are interested in Aidy White, although why he'd want to join them after their humiliation in the Play-Offs, I can't understand.

So all you Ipswich fans insisting that you're signing Ward.. bad luck, i guess.
wally(13)(2)Its all RUBBISH I have just looked at the daily mail and their is NOTHING.Its in Portsmouths local paperIt is ive just looked onlineStill better than being at Leeds I guess...Crap right wing news paper, i dislike ipswich but would go there before leeds, everyday week. Like uncle ken can not stand warnockThe Daily Mail, really! Spend your money on the Beano, its a better comic.10 May 2012 18:22:13

well, here it is. tbf, this is the only place I've seen it, but its there in writing
wallyBest mates with pearce seems to be the deal breakerAll us Ipswich fans who have been saying he won't sign for us or he would have in Jan are wrong are we I see. thanks for correcting us now can you stop going for all out targets please

Blackbury Rovers are to have
a drastic overhaul of the playing
squad this summer.

With up to 8-10 players going to be
sold or leave on a free.

With Blackburn ready to raid all the
Championship clubs for there key
players to give then a chance to
return back to the PL first time of
asking.(8)(21)The fact that you don't know the names of said 'key players' and the clubs that they play for shows your ignorance. With that attitude, it becomes obvious why people are saying the fans got that club relegated, not the manager or board.
wallyBlackburn going to raid all other Championship clubs?? Sorry but they may be going to recieve parachute payments but that will go to the Chicken you think the are going to start bank rolling them now?? Why not when the club needed it? why not when a certain letter dropped on their desks begging them to help? Sorry but it's more likely a slip down the leagues beckon for the one time should not have been allowed to happen but it question is how big are the gates going to be?? It was never because of a big fan base that took them to the summit was it? it was because of one mans love for his team.....something Venkys have clearly not got!! Any one who thinks that bouncing straight back to the Prem is a given is in for a massive shock.Rovers will promote from the youth and reserve teams next season,its clear what venky's plans are,sell the best players for a tidy profit,let the out of contract players leave(hoilett etc)to massively reduce the wage bill and swallow the parachute money for the next few seasons,i can really see this once proud club dropping through the divisions.Totally agree, Blackburn owners do appear to be asset stripping the club, they already got rid of Samba and Jones for big money, so expect some big outgoing sales during the summer including Hanley, Ollson, Pedersen etc with little or nothing being spent on new recruits. They will let Steve Kean continue with his positive upbeat statements about getting in the right new players with experience to add to the young players to get them promoted back to premier. What he really means is players who are out of contract with other clubs who may agree to sign on free transfers, because they have not received any other offers.
He is the perfect fall guy for the owners, promotes them as great owners and always puts a positive spin on every disaster. Mr Kean please respect yourself and the fans wishes and resign your position


10 May 2012 08:59:02
Blackpools Tom ince to Leicester {Ed015's Note - Why , he is on the verge of prem football.}(2)(41)Also with prem teams interested...leicester clearly haven't learnt their lesson from last season...Thought he was on a season long loan from liverpool?BehaveNo he is not. Another year in the Championship for him...


10 May 2012 08:54:10
You will see some big movement at swindon

Jonathon Smith
Phil Smith

Murray Ipswich
Marlon Pack Cheltenham
Craig Westcarr Chesterfield
Lee Holmes free
Jay Mckeverly - Free(15)(7)Boring!! As I previously stated..this is just regurgitated commom knowledge. The players going you have mentioned are obvious BUT ONLY IF TOWN CAN OFF LOAD THEM i.e. Magera may take some shifting and Town may have to keep him. Of the players coming in that you mention Holmes and Mceveley are again common knowledge..they have had good loan spells and are now available on free's which is good business for the Town. Marlon Pack has been linked with Town for ages (Especially becasue of his friendship with Matt Ritchie) forgot about a potential season long loan for Bostock......As for the others coming in that you mention...are you just plucking names from fresh air? PDC has said this week "I will make no other decisions on players until I have sat down with the board and discussed all targets..and seeing has the Towns current Chairman has been taken into hospital and is in "severe" pain I'm guessing they have yet to speak. I'm not saying you are wrong but unless you are close freind of PDC (In which case you should be ashamed of yourself as PDC does not want to publicly discuss targets yet) you have no more idea than anyone else. The next few months will be exciting...but please stop indicating you KNOW what will happen..and PLEASE stop stating the bl@@dy obvious!!Agree with the above post the players on your list is all guess work and no one knows who is staying or likely to come in until Paolo has made his decisions.

Le fondre to Cardiff on loan. Reading promoted means no game time for the ex Rotherham striker(6)(30)Another post about Le Fondre going out on loan. It is not going to happen. He will get game time it is the other strikers that won't like Church, Mancet and Sheppard.Cant see why their top scorer wouldnt get game timeReading's most prolific striker, he will feature heavily next season. Another delusional Cardiff fan i see!Le fondre will be going no where as he will be a big part player in readings season,and will score goals aswell so wake up cardiff fan.:))As a Cardiff fan i wouldn't want him anyway...but I don't see him stepping up to the Prem level but I do see Reading surviving and doing better than Norwich or Swansea.Typical Cardiff fan! He isn't going anywhereWhy would anyone in their right mind go to wales {Ed025's Note - the scenery?..


10 May 2012 08:46:31

So for all of those proclaiming Ritchie, Caddis etc will be leaving Swindon Town.. They have AGAIN stated "None of our stars will be leaving. Players on the fringes of the squad will go (If they can off load them) then new players will be added. They are hoping to get Bostock back on season long loan. They hope to tie up the free signings for Mceveley and Holmes which is common knowledge. As for who else may be on PDC wanted list there may well still be some interest in O'Kane (Although PDC was annoyed that SKY released this at a time when his club are facing the play offs-although Martin Ling as stated the transfer talk has not unsettles his player. There is also some talk of Pack (Cheltenham) apart from that all of the talk on here lately is nonesense, PDC and the Board know who they want, they know what resources are available. Those on here listing everyone with a pulse and two legs have not got a clue. They other last bright spot "Swindon stars do not want to leave, they want to see if they can get back to back promotions" and Jeremy Wray has stated "We do not need to sell and we won't sell" several times in the last few months. What ever happens, it's going to be exciting for the fans between now and the start of the season seeing just who is coming in!! One last thing PDC will not be leaving before then end of next season!!(9)(6)


10 May 2012 08:02:40

Tottenham Hotspur transfers:
Jan Vertonghen: 10 million
Diego Capel: 7 million
Leighton Baines: 8 million
Adebayor: 15 million
Loic Remy: 13 million {Ed025's Note - £8m for baines? you got the prices for Baines and Adebayor the wrong way round...

I'd say Capel is at best fifth choice for a wide player this summer, after Hazard, Krasic, Hoilett and Moses.Baines by far the best lb in britain he wont be leaving EFC for any less that 20+8 million for baines? you need some stronger glue you chopperWhy do all you fools think that baines is worth 8-10 milLeighton Baines--20mill ??
If Moyes can get anything like that he must be a miracle worker.I'd rate him £8 mill top bat. I accept he's a good player -but not that good!Erm best english LB by a mile my ARSE! Ashley Coles the best in the world and he's english sooooAshley Cole is nothing compared to Baines

Arsene Wenger is very close to sealing to incomings to The Emirates but also could lose three players after accepting offers.
To start with, Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano is set to fly to England before the season ends to speak to the club after the underachieving French side accepted a £15 million bid from the London side for the 27 year old.
Another deal very close to happening is Borussia Dortmund youngster Terrence Boyd. The 21 year old is expected to sign a five year deal at Arsenal for around £3.5 million.
Three players are expecting to leave in the near weeks.
Morocco international Marouane Chamakh is very close to sealing a two year deal in Holland with AZ Alkmaar, in a transfer that could cost the Eredivisie side £4 million.
Another Dutch club in PSV are keen on signing Russia captain Andrei Arshavin on loan for the next campaign with a view to a full time deal in January. Talks have already starts.
Finally, South Korea international has this week held talks with local rivals Tottenham over a cheap £5 million transfer that could earn the former Monaco attacker around £65,000 a week.(8)(20)

Have heard that Oxfords James Constable is in talks with Yeovil.(18)(13)Have heard this too. Maybe a cash/player deal....But have also heard Rotherham have made enquiry about Constable - Evans has an open cheque book apparentlyAfter all the abuse and death threats Oxford fans gave Constable in January when Swindon wanted to talk to him about a move i wouldnt be surprised if he moved. His form has dipped considerably since January and who can blame him moving after the way he hwas treated by Oxford fans. What makes me laugh is when he stayed at Oxford after the January window Oxford fans expected everything to go back to normal with Constable. He wants to leave the club and will.Er death threats? What utter utter rubbish. There is not one supporter who thought Beano worked his socks off for Oxford. Get over it - he did not want to sign for Swindon and after a huge amount of money was offered too. Typical of Swindon - throw loads of money at something and dont worry for tomorrow. Well, tomorrow is not far away. He will leave Oxford most likely as he needs to develop and its likely the case he is bit hacked off with the way the management have treated him. But death threats - get your facts right. That is a serious and nasty accusation to makeHe loves oxford , the fans love him, the recor when he plays is far better than without, he hasnt had many chances to score since the swindon match! he s an ultimate pro but his future unfortunately lies at the hands of the manager

Although he been released, they done that last season aswell. BHA have already said they will review his situation again in June as they offer him a new 1 year deal.No idea if it'll be Rovers but highly unlikely to stay at Brighton. He had a good season and was still told that no new deal was there for him. Will get another club on a 2yr deal easily enough.

C, joe Lewis and Boyd will both sign next week from peterboro(4)(16)Joe Lewis is no longer a Peterborough player! He is useless! Boyd is a good player but is not premiership quality, if you want to stay in the prem, you really need to be aiming a little bit higher than this!Think any animosity between Saints/Brighton has come more from your lot, mate e.g 'It's official... SAINTS BUBBLE HAS BURST'. Also certain the poster above has misread the original post and may wish to comment on Lewis and Boyd going to Peterborough's championship rivals.

there won't be any footballers left at the end of the summer because according to this site Southampton are buying everyone!(28)(12)Hang on there, doubt we will sign anyone from Pompey and according to the poster below, lambert is going to LeicesterThe same thing happened last year. On the back of promotion, and with money to burn loads of people are getting carried away, and this year the papers are joining in, I've seen 12 players linked already in national papers/online. Last year we only signed 4 players, and I'd expect no more than 6 this year.Haha that was funnySo what about Reading, Leciester, Charlton etc....Its a rumour site your going to get loads of posts about different players. Always happens with newly promoted teams too. People taking this all seriously make me laugh!I thought it was a rumour site have funWe are southampton, we'll buy who we want!

MK Dons looking into the possibility of signing Lionel Ainsworth on a free transfer. Alex Rae will also be appointed assistant manager.(9)(3)

Charlton's financial situation is not looking good after last seasons spending spree. Numerous big named players having to be axed to reduce the wage bill including Jackson, Kermogant and potentially BWP. Jackson has been linked to Palace as after all, Palace do not consider Charlton rivals.(10)(13)This is absolute rubbish. We're on a solid financial footing having had a recent takeover. We didn't spend massively (look up New York Addick, I believe he's the go-to man for Charlton financial information), we received a lot for Jenkinson, a bit for Bailey, and bits and pieces here and there for other players. JJ certainly won't leave for Palace.Really how old are you?
You Palace fans are really wierd pretending not to like us but then posting almost obsessive things like this about us.
Oh, and by the way we're financially stable and will be pushing for a return to the premier league sometime in the next few years.

Southampton to sign this summer

Jason Lowe - Blackburn - £2.5 mill
Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield - £4.5 mill
Craig Cathcart - Blackpool - £3 mill (depending if BP are promoted
Jonjo Shelvey - Liverpool - Loan(6)(32)Absolute rubbish!If southampton sign these players, they be straight back down into the championship.Im a Saints fan and I agree this is rubbish...These players would not improve out squad in my opinion (Maybe Rhodes though)They will any way ^^- Lowe - relegated with Bburn and I wasn't impressed with him at all.

- Rhodes - would like more pace up front so can see him being expensive and not really what we need despite his talent.

- Cathcart. Just no.
- Shelvey - if we bring in youth players into the team they will be from our own academy, not on loan on the behalf of other rival clubs.

You may sign Dempsey but we won't be buying your deadwood!Dempsey is at least 10 mate even with his contract out next summer. 8m and rosicky could tempt them thoughWhy on earth would Dempsey want to take such a massive step down when he has played so well this year.

Halford to Hull for 600k
Ben Haim to southampton for 350k(3)(33)Joel Ward will sign for Leeds done deal!Why on earth would Southampton want Ben Haim? All he is is a drain on Pompey's funds. There's no way anyone would pay money for him. If his contract is up he'll go for free and on his wages, I don't think many of their lot will be too sad to see him go.Unfortunately TBH's contract has another year to go. Gotta come to a deal to release him or hope some mug punters buy him.

Leeds boss Neil Warnock is expected to add four names to his summer transfer list after completing the deal for Portsmouth defender Jason Pearce last week.
Nottingham Forest skipper Luke Chambers is subject of a undisclosed bid from United and could sign a three year deal before the weekend.
Secondly, Watford forward Joe Garner is close to signing a two year deal after Championship rivals Leeds had a £170,000 bid accepted for the former Nottingham Forest player.
Another striker very close to signing is 21 year old attacker Darren Mattocks from Vancouver Whitecaps. The youngster is thought to be the next big thing in the MLS and could sign a four year deal with Warnock's side.
Finally, Charlton midfielder Dale Stephens is subject of a £300,000 bid from United and could sign a three year deal after impressing Warnock during winning promotion to the Championship from League 1.(5)(24)Luke chambers is out of contractHow can anyone sign by this weekend, the window is still shut!!And garner?! wats he done to merit anyone buying him this year? as a watford fan i hope we get our monies worth because garner has been a real disappointment this year. he tries hard but just lacks quality and goes down far too easily. we hav very few strikers as it is so i doubt we d be selling him just yetLeeds have no money theyre skintPlease take chambers ! hes rubbishSkint? Leeds are one of the few clubs in the Champinship that are not in debt and make a profit.And chambers contract is up so thats proved this is all made upI hope Leeds do take Garner off our hands.There is so much wrong with this post I can't even be bothered to comment!Joe Garner at leeds, haha, a match made in heaven. He won't get you 20 goals a season but he might get 20 red cards.


09 May 2012 18:23:27
There have been a couple of rumours on this site today about Brighton players without the club's name attached (see under the main 'Football Rumours' thread 9 May)

Crawley to sign:

Matthew Gill (Bristol Rovers £200,000)

Relyable Source
(In my family)

McLeod (Barnet) £400,000

Jermaine Grandison (Shrewsbury) £400,00

YEAH BOI(0)(15)McLeod isn't joining for us, he's already signed for Portsmouth check it if you don't believe me on wikipediaMcLeod is a free agent in the Summer, Gill is nowhere near worth £200k either.Can't see any of those deals happening.Grandison is a Shrews legend and is going nowhere.Total rubbish.

If your team had been promoted from league 2, I'm sure you would not be happy them signing 2 players from the league below for 1 million (with the 3rd in a fellow promoted team).

Crawley will be going for tried league 1 and Championship players.

zaha agreeing a deal with southampton with jason puncheon going in the opposite direction deal 85% done ..... good source from both clubs(18)(19)Saints fan here...Sorry cant see it..Zaha is good enough for a bigger team.Saints fan here,

Tough one to call. Seems reasonable to be honest. Palace get a quality replacement and Southampton get a cheaper deal. As above post says, Zaha is good enough for better clubs, but might be happy with premiership football and a starting place, which few prem clubs can offer to a 19 year old?

Just a thought. As with all rumours at this stage it's probably not going to happen, but I think it could benefit both parties. Southampton not a bad club to get involved in for a 19 year old wanting to break into prem football.So that he can play back in the championship 2014 -2015 SEASON.Above post - Why would Saints buy Zaha only to sell him back to a Championship club? Makes no sense!"So that he can play back in the championship 2014 -2015 SEASON."

I know I am biased as a Saints supporter but realistically most of the teams Zaha will join could potentially be threatened by relegation next season?

There is no point him or anyone speculating which will go down, but from my perspective I'd rather join a successful, confident, ambitious, wealthy football club than one treading water in the prem? Saints have decent support (will sell out every game in prem), ambitions to rival most clubs in the prem, some of the best facilities in the country and is generally considered a very well run 'going-places' club.

I am not saying we will stay up/go down, but I am saying wherever Zaha goes there will always be that threat, and I would look at the clubs and see Saints as one of the more attractive ones to give the prem a crack with, worst case scenario is that he gets relegated but will be good enough to be brought back into another prem team?


09 May 2012 17:43:49

bothroyd and beckford not going to
leeds so dream on(13)(12)His names Jamie Vardy not James VardyI am no leeds fan but it is obvious that beckford wants out of Leicester cityBeckford is quoted as saying he would like to move back to Leeds (source: conversation with Becchio in player's lounge after the Leicester game at Elland Road, which appeared later on Twitter). He also kissed Alex Bruce's shirt before being substituted off in the game, and was warmly applauded. The impression is that he would like to return to Leeds, if he leaves Leicester, but we aren't after forwards providing McCormack stays.

Sky State Charlton Are Ready To Offer Francois Zoko A contract when his contract at Carlisle ends Very Soon They Also Say He Rejected Several Re-newels From Carlisle.

And Dont get critical Its A Good Source Look It Up Yourself.

Yes, he is on free transfer.
Yes, clubs will be interested.
But no, he hasn't rejected any offers of a renewed contract from Carlisle.

They offered him one on Sunday, and negotiations are yet to start. He's given Carlisle first billing, and has talked to no other clubs. He is Carlisle's to lose.(0)(0)Hang on, what? Zoko is publically quoted as saying that he offered to send clubs videos of him playing to coax them into offering him a deal at the end of the season. If that's not a player in dialogue with other clubs, then I'm a fish with legs.

WE ARE LEICESTER CITY AND WE ARE GOING UP, yes your all sat there saying we cant spend millions because of FFP who cares if they fine us we are loaded remember, then you say you can only spend what you earn we have loads of rich sponsers like puma so yeah premiership watch out leicester are coming!!!(6)(41)Seriously?! This has to be someone pretending to be a Leicester fan surely! They cant actually believe that crap?!Hes just finished his homework i think ....Didn't you all say that last summer? didn't happen as planned really did it...Didn't you lot come out with these statements before the start of last season, I bet the bottom half of the PL quaking in their boots, you'll stay where you belong, championship.Loling at the stupidity of immature fansThis for me (who is a real Leicester fan) is embarrasingHaha championship will be 10 times harder this season! Leicester lucky to make playoffs.

I'm a Saints fan, we were lucky because the championship wasn't the most competitive it has been this year (no one put a winning run together to challenge us until Reading at the end of the season), but next year it will be a nightmare. Couldn't call any team being certain of promotion other than Wolves who shouldn't lose too many players from relegation.May i say as a leicester supporter the original poster is clearly on a wind up, tho the ffp rules will come into play i dont believe it will be in full effect for 3 seasons, also there are loop wholes, maybe leicester will sell the rights to there stadium for millions to king power just as Man city have im not saying we are in the same financial league as them im just making the point that there will be ways of creating extra income.Ime a coventry city fan u crack me up i swear it was u ho said that this time last year i bet u cov will get to prem before uDear oh dear. Either 10 years old, high on something or had a bang on the head. {Ed025's Note - or all three..You spent millions last season, what league you in next season?The FFP rules will be in full effect from the start of next season. From next season you will only be allowed to make a loss of £10m and your investors can only put £6m into the club and it wont be a fine it will be a transfer embargo if you break these rules. Make sure you check your facts before posting on here!Check ur facts buddy! I repeat FFP rules will not be in (Full) effect till 2014-2015 season these rules will be introduced gradually and sanctions will not be introduced I till the 2014-2015 season and this will be either a transfer embargo or and I quote " A fine the other clubs who comply will share!!Groundhog dayThe FFP rules are in effect from the start of the new season. It is the fines & transfer embargo's that will come into effect in 2013/14 based on the finances of the previous season. A promoted side will be fined and a team not getting promotion will suffer a transfer embargo.Hang on, you've just made this up!

£5million you paid for Matt Mills! Will wave to you on Match of the Day URZZZZNo chance mate, look you wont be spending as much as last year and look what happened to ya! going nowhere!

Ipswich are close to completing their first 2 transfers of the summer, after their mass clear out.

First in the door will be Joel Ward from Portsmouth. Talks have been on-going with board members and the administrators at the debt ridden south coast club, and a solution is close to completion.Twon are hoping to seal the £400k deal by the start of next week.

Joel Ward will be closely followed in the door by Michael Jacobs from Northampton. Ipswich have moved ahead of plenty of championship sids in the race for Jacobs. Jacobs is said to be impressed with the way Aaron Cresswell was given the chance this season, and is hoping that Jewell will let him fill the left side of midfield. Town are hoping to agree a £250k fee, rather than for it to go to a tribunal.(10)(6)Is it me, or do we get this yammering every season from Ipswich fans. If half the deals rumoured on here last year were 'done and dusted,' then Ipswich would have signed upwards of eighty players. Especially Joel Ward. God, if you're going to get him, just do it, before Leeds come in.

whoever is appointed WBA manager will be promised a transfer budget in the region of £15m - £20m as Jeremy Peace is now willing to spend as they head into their 3rd consecutive season in the Premier League and see's this as the ideal time to further consolidate their position as a Premier League club. The manager will be allowed to spend whatever money is generated from player sales. the amount given/raised will also have to include new players wages.

expect the following to leave

- Olsson (wont sign new contract)
- Odemwingie (if bigger club comes in)
- Tamas (wants to leave)
- Jara (cp)
- Scharner (didnt trigger clause in contract)
- Foster (End of loan)

Word around Merseyside this morning is John Henry had told Kenny Daglish he will have to be a lot more careful with transfers this summer as he will only have £25m cash plus whatever can be raised through player sales. Last summer Liverpool spent more than double that with £20m on Downing, £16m on Henderson, £7.5m on Adam, £7m on Coates and £5.5m on Enrique while Bellamy and Doni joined on free transfers. Despite most of last seasons transfers flopping Doni is the only one looking likely to leave the club this summer as he wants a move back to Brazil. Daglish is willing to offload Aquilani,Kuyt,Cole,Aurelio,Doni,Maxi Rodriguez,Eccleston,B.Jones and even young Jay Spearing as he looks to trim the huge wage bill. Daglish is hoping the players going out will raise £15-20m . Daglish will not be paying over the odds this year as he won't have enough money, he is looking for some shrewd premier league signings in Craig Gordon and David Hoilett, both are free agents this summer and would surely relish the opportunity to play at Anfield. Liverpool need another goalkeeper as 2nd and 3rd choices Doni and Jones look set to leave. Gordon would be a good back up and could provide competition for an under performing Pepe Reina. David Hoilett is a tricky young winger with pace to burn, Hoilett could be just what Liverpool need but they face competition from Tottenham and Sunderland. Bologna confirmed last week that they have received a £16m offer for Uruguayan playmaker Gaston Ramirez from an unnamed PL club believed to be Liverpool. Ramirez is believed to be Kenny's top summer target. Luuk de Jong is available for £12.5m and Daglish sees him as the man to replace Dirk Kuyt, de Jong will offer Carroll some competition up top while he is just as good playing off the striker or like Kuyt on the right wing. Liverpool will also sign an experienced holding midfielder as Daglish doesn't feel spearing is up to the job and with Lucas out with a long term injury he can't afford to start another season without another tough tackling midfielder. Daglish is planning a £7.5m bid for Lassana Diarra should that fail then Daglish will make a £3m move for Seydou Keita. Jonjo Shelvey,Danny Wilson,Raheem Sterling,Adam Morgan and John Flanagan are all set for a period out on loan to develop.

Of course he won't go to city. If he goes anywhere he will go to Spain.

Arsenal are showing intent in the transfer market from an early stage this year so he should be relatively happy with the club. Also he featured heavily in the clubs new kit promotion video, which is promising for Arsenal.

All the people making up crazy rymours, then the people retaliating to them by saying southampton fans are deluded are getting annoying.
What I will say is in league1 we signed the best around are league to go up, and in th championship we signed players around us or higher with the odd foriegn player coming in.
some genuine name saints have been linked with are; J.Rodriguez(8m-the sun) Michu(4.9m-skysports) Scott Dann(?-the sun) Kevin Doyle(4m-daily mirror) Conor McAleny(free-daily mail) Zat Knight(?-the people) Matthew Upson(500k-daily mail) Matt Jarvis(4m-the express) Mark Davies(?-the sun) Jamie Vardy(1m-the sun) Zak Whitbread(free-skysports) Yakubu(?-) Simon Cox(?-) Jake Livermore(?-) Matt Phillips(?-) Curtis Davies(3m-the sun)
Theres also Gary hooper who had a 7m fee rejected in January and has expressed his views of playing in europe, but who knows, Adkins does what he can to nail his man. wait an see

SM(8)(8)The press just gather in a bar and make up transfer rumours so don't believe anything you read -especially as they will now be avoiding 'phone hacking!I'm a Saints fan and can't see the point of this post.

Started off as a bit of a rant. Then went on about some past signings. Then went on with some vague attempt to over view the current rumours out there without using the space bar.

Not quite sure what you are hoping to achieve. There was a rant but it wasn't backed up by anything. Then just some random rumours - bit confused.

Southampton are reportedly looking into signing Paul Robinson from Blacburn Rovers for a fee thought to be around £2 million. It is thought he would provide great competition to Kelvin Davis.(19)(12)Competition? Surely Robinson would be the new number 1 otherwise he wouldn't sign!He probably might sign but dounbt he'd be back-up if he did.In what way is this good competition for Kelvin Davis?

Two old keepers competing over a spot is NOT what we need. We need the space to have a young keeper fighting for a first team spot.

Having a 32 year old and a 34 year old competing over a first team place is not what we want going forward, we want kelvin davis as first choice, buy in a new young keeper as 2nd choice and have him improve and compete. An older keeper should always be understudied by a younger keeper if the club wants to progress as a whole.

For example:
- Lars Unnerstall (my first choice. He is 2nd keeper at Shalke and they already have a young keeper holding the number 1 spot, so this could easily happen but it would be costly as he is a quality player, but I believe we need to sign young quality players even if they cost a little more)

Others that could become possible:

- Marc-André Ter Stegen
- Ron Robert Zieler
- Samir Ujkani
- Ali Ahamada
- Esteban Alvarado
- Bill Hamid

I know my football and these signings are all possible. I am not categorically saying "we will be able to sign them" but they are not off the mark. Google them if you want more info.

SaintsLadNot sure about the players he mentions but the comments from SaintsLad are spot on.I agree with SaintsLad. Finally people that actually think before posting! I agree we will bring a keeper in though. Bart has been with us for years and years and barely got anything, I think he will probably move on to get regular first team football. Which is a shame, he's been so patient and shown great loyalty and patience with the club

Manchester United are lining up a sensational move for Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie.

The 28-year-old has just one year left on his current deal at the Emirates and there has been intense speculation over whether he will remain at Arsenal.
Van Persie, who has hit 35 goals in all competitions this season, has stated that he will hold talks with Arsene Wenger over his future in the summer.
Manchester City are reportedly ready to pay the Dutchman £250,000 a week to quit north London, while Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been linked with moves.
Now United have joined the chase, with Sir Alex Ferguson planning to strengthen his squad this summer after a disappointing campaign that looks set to end without any silverware.
talkSPORT understands United have already sounded out the possibility of van Persie making a switch to Old Trafford, and are prepared to splash out big on the former Feyenoord man.(13)(27)Dream on man u are pennyless couldnt afford van persie even if they sold rooney naniHe will go abroad if he leaves.

Pompey News....As reported in the Pompey newspaper this morning there are 2 interested buyers for the club one being chainrai and The other one is Chinease Businessmen Yon em lal,a very succesful man in China....He has big plans for the club, a new ground away from FP,new training and academy facilities and substantial funds for MA....Exciting times for Pompey...(3)(18)Just read the news - no mention of a rich chinaman buying the club

Why would he want to - club in too much debtBull. There is literally nowhere in the city to put a stadium other than where FP is now. You'd have to put it out of the city which won't happen.I would suggest being a little cautious until there is something more concrete.Shame its a false rumour , good luck on finding someone from a sincere saints fan were not all wishing you go underGood luck to you pompey. Don't get excited but don't get pessimistic either. You're not a bad investment. Whoever buys you has a potentially premiership club to build on with a blank canvas and if I had the money I would want to buy a club like yourselves with decent fans and a history and make something of it from scratch.

Good luck (from a saints fan)

SaintsLadPompey fan here, Not trying to put a downer on things buy whoever buys us what are they buying. The ground is an awful state, would need rebuilding or massive work done on it, we dont own our own training ground. By the time any deal goes through there will be no team at the rate the way we are going. All i am saying is dont get your hopes up, we been let down to many times before.Sorry SaintsLad, I am a Saints supporter as well but that is a load of rubbish.
The problem for Pompey fans is that the club is now a diabolical investment. Compare it to a club like Rangers and you will see that I am correct-if Rangers are struggling to get new owners with their support, facilities and chance of Champions League football, what have Pompey to offer?Above post, whoever buys it will be buying whatever is worth the price they invest.

When you buy a football club half of it is purchasing the material assets of the club, the other half is purchasing the fans and the stature the club currently has (decent fans and a potentially decent championship status at the moment).

The price that will be payed by whoever purchases it will reflect the quality of ground and the training ground and the players. Of course they aren't buying a finished product but the value of the purchase will reflect that.

Tony Bloom tookover a lower League 1 Brighton buy purchasing a majority share for relatively little value and invested money into the club, got a new stadium built etc. With the history pompey has and the fans something similar can easily happen. Its a clean page to start on for any investor with potentially a premiership club and will be a cheap club to purchase. Right now things look dire for pompey, but the future could potentially shine very bright for them if the right investor comes in, who no doubt will come in with the intention to buy the club for cheap then spend to increase its value (like at Southampton).

And I'm a Saints fan. Don't slate pompey for being a st investment, its a decent club, just needs the right owner and it is in the perfect position to make a comeback. {Ed025's Note - well said pal..To the person questioning what pompey have to offer.. the above post answers that question (I wrote that also but just didn't sign off with 'SaintsLad'.

If you purchase any company (e.g. a Football Club) you purchase it at it's current value. What portsmouth offers isn't a position of great material assets but one of potential assets.

By that I mean.. After administration and other legal measures, which I won't go into now, Pompey will be relatively debt free, with a decent supporter base and a history in football. The fact it needs re-structuring and new facilities will only serve to make it cheaper for any potential investor.

The fact the football club will be relatively cheap means that more money can be invested elsewhere - buying an expensive club which has already been developed by a previous owner gives that club little area to grow into and expand as a business and as a football club.

Having a blank slate to start building a new football club franchise upon, yet still retaining a reasonable league status and fan support is very attractive. A club hitting rock bottom offers a lot more exciting investment opportunity than a club staying afloat and doing reasonably well.

Of all people Saints fans like yourself and I should appreciate that sometimes it takes relegation, hitting rock bottom and stripping bare all the extra weight weighing you down before you can start again and build for a brighter future with a disciplined and ambitious owner.

All I am suggesting is that people shouldn't slate pompey's attractiveness as an investment for having nothing material to offer an investor because investors don't buy clubs that are finished products, they buy them and develop them themselves so they can turn a profit. Anyway gone off track, whether this rumour is true or not is another story, but good luck to pompey anyway.

Papiss Cisse was misinterpreted and did not say he wants to join Real Madrid, he just said he grew up as a supporter!

Although, if they did come in for him, I wouldn't begrudge him a move, Newcastle would get at least £30m for him, probably as much as £50m. Goalmachine#(8)(21)Maybe £18m not £30m and especially not £50m when real madrid could buy a better goalmachine and striker for that priceExcept if he plays against KompanyGood player but wont cost anywhere near £30m!! had a good start to the prem but hes only been there half a season....could just be a first season wonder...we'll see! and if Real come in for him i can see more like £15m-£20m more likely and he wont reject them to stay at disrespect i like Newcastle just not as big as the Real's and Barca'sI believe this. Translational mis-interpretation.

Footballers get a lot of stick now a days but they aren't stupid. He would be a fool to betray newcastle a few months after signing with them, after all the support he is doing and how well he has been playing. No need to upset the apple cart. If he has another season like the one he has just had though, can see him moving on to bigger things unfortunately.

Can see him being a bit of a Samuel Eto type player.Wots going on ed wheres ma reply to this so called rumour {Ed025's Note - never seen it mate...but if it was abusive or contained will have been binned..He has buy out clause of 15m

crystal palace have been linked to brightons highly rated defender lewis dunk and will buckley.the pair see it as a step up.(4)(16)How is moving from brigton to palace a step up?? oh and that's coming from a forest fanHere we go again silly rumour time from poor Palace supportersLol er yeah ok, and in respect to Dunk, you can have him after his contract has been cancelled by the club, and he is probably imprisoned for part in the sex scandal, so sign him in 18 months or so ladsMaybe he could sign for Forest......That would be a well bigger step up....Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!I'm neutral (Saints) and I can't see it as a step up I'm afraid.

Brighton is a nice area on the South Coast, nice towns. Lovely new stadium. Ambitious club finishing progressively higher (not lower like palace) and with a great manager.

Sorry Palace but if you are going to start competing for players against the likes of Brighton you need to show more overall ambition.

However, with Clyne leaving this summer and palace no doubt getting a fee of larger proportions.. I can see some spending. But not directly against championship clubs finishing higher than them and currently with better prospects.

SaintsladYou might be able to get them both if you're prepared to splash out a decent percentage of the £150m you are getting for Zaha. Or not maybe.Are you seriously comparing forest to palace? Fan base, stadium, potential, seriously think place are anywhere near forest? Come on daft lad lol
I'm to saying forest are a big club, because at present we are not, but we are a level above palace.
I've heard good things, footballing things of course, about dunk. I just hope he doesn't go to the prem and spend three years in the reserves or being loaned out to lots of different clubs.
He would do well staying at Brighton and learning his trade

Tranmere release 7 players as they look to strengthen for next season:
Enoch Showumni
Mustafa Tiriyaki
David Raven
Robbie Weir
Martin Devaney
Joss Ladabie
Andy Coughlin

Showumni has been a shadow of his former self since his broken leg and looks to need a fresh challenge.
Tiriyaki was on loan at Cambridge and failed to find form there possibly will go back to non league football.
Raven was an ever present at the strt of the season however a number of injuries kept him on the sidelines.
Robbie Weir never managed to find any sort of form decent enough player on his day.
Martin Devaney Mr Glass!
Joss Ladabie far to indisciplined
Andy Coughlin could well go on to have a decent career not a bad keeper.

Rovers have had to get some of these higher earners off the pay roll simply because they have not played for large parts of the season.

Rovers have offered deals to Goodison, Taylor, Welsh, Buchanen and Robinson. The club are hopeful all will sign despite interest from a number of toher clubs.

Rovers have also taken up the one year option on Danny Holmes, Lucas Akins and Adam McGurk(11)(2)

Looks like Dicanio will not get the funds needed to go all out for promotion next season.
It appears the Board although mega Rich
will not throw money away, and where as
Dicanio did very well in the last season there are limits to what they will put in the
pot.So looks as if Dicanio is headed to west Ham.
It's also rumoured that Dicanio went way over budget last seaso, yet he mad the team champions
Time for the Board to either fund or let Dicanio know(3)(17)TripePosted by a deluded Oxford fan this rumour. I think people need to remember the high earners were shipped out when Di Canio came in and so this rubbish about him spending over budget is pure fantasy.What is he going to do at West Ham then Ball boy??
god knows where you get your information from you are so far from the truth its unreal... he couldnt manage championship players at the momentas he is to raw! could see Noalan and cole training 7 days a week i cant, the Swindon players had a total of 19 days off this season thats including sundays and week days......... nothing but a dreamer? i know hoddle is the next Swindon manager??

Reading to sign Maxi Rodriguez upon his departure of liverpool. The fee is beleived to be £3 million(5)(27)As he wants to cancel his contract there wouldn't be a fee.Reading fan here....are you in dreamland?? wages for one will be a huge problem! He isn't going to leave Liverpool for Reading FACT. The takeover hasn't been completed yet so I will wait until that goes through to see how ambitious the new RFC owner is and how much money he is willing to give us for transfers this summer.This would be SOME statement of intent, but of course wouldn't fit into our wage structure and is far too good for us

Skysports seems to think Man Utd have
agreed a fee of around £23.5m for
Javi Martinez – Central Midfielder (Athletic Bilbao)(24)(12)Where is it shownUnlikely because both Real (despite his altercation with Ronaldo) and Barca are keen on him and he would more likely opt for either and AB would demand a higher price than that

Blackburn Rovers. With a fortune of
£1.65billion surely can only be a
good move for the club?.(6)(21)Doubt he'd buy it in the championshipMore likely to buy Newcastle or Aston VillaHe won't need that much a couple of quid should be enough.

Derby may have signed Michael Jacobs after the club announced a pre season friendly against Northampton will take place.(19)(11)On that basis - Watford may have signed Luca ModricIn the past seasons, every time a friendly with a lower league team has been announced, its been due as part of a deal for a player. Crewe v Derby - John Brayford & James Bailey, Exeter v Derby - Dean Moxey, Mansfield v Derby - Tom Naylor, and now Northampton v Derby, Michael JacobsThe last post is correct its part of the deal when they sign . Derby play Burton in pre season because it was part of the deal that got Nigel clough .

Sydney FC are close to landing
striker Mathieu Manset from Reading
(currently on loan at Shanghai
Shenhua) on a 3 year deal.
Although Reading would have
preferred to loan the young striker
out for another season, his development
has stalled and he is unlikely to sign
a new contract when his expires at the
end of 2012/13. They have agreed a
fee which could rise to around £400k.(8)(9)Reading wouldn't have preferred a loan at all. We bought him from Hereford knowing he had a weight problem but felt we could get him fit and keep him fit. The sad fact is he isn't professional enough and can't be managed. He's also had off-field problems, one of which was his drink driving.

I'm surprised there's any money involved if I'm honest.Ill be honest, i think he has great potential, id take him at boro any dayReading straight up rejected a (sizeable) cash offer for Manset in January from Crawley, before the bid from Shanghai was even mentioned. Why wouldn't they want a fee?Can we have him back at hereford

Ed what you are forgetting is that they have already affected jobs and small businesses in the area, have a look at the creditors list and all the small companies they owe money to, the list is endless..... {Ed025's Note - and so you think gloating about that is ok?..

Ed ....have you ever heard the old adage "what goes round comes round" you would be telling lies if you dont admit you have gloated at some point in your life, it is actually called banter, i have got some friends that are Portsmouth fans and I have suffered abuse from them over the past 6 or 7 years, so everyone needs to lighten up and get a life. Bye Bye Poopey...COYR(9)(5)Yet another sad muppet from the SO poor area of Hampshire making comments, and its not banter it is gloating, the likes of Man U, Liverpool, Chelsea etc owe far more than us and if their owners were to walk away like Gudamuck did, they also would be in the mire.Add to "what goes around comes around" "there's none so blind as those who will not see" according to the exp-erts 70% of clubs are in financial problems or will be if their ambitions and fan's expectations are greater than their financial ability can support.Pompey fan writing from dire experiences.I think what irks many fans are some Pompey fans who do not seem to have any grasp of maths. Perhaps the fan who compares Pompey to Man.U, Chelsea etc. does not realise the difference between a business with strong assets and income compared to one that has neither. If you keep spending money and you have poor assets and income the outcome is inevitable but many Pompey fans seem to feel they can ignore this, either whilst it is happening or after the outcome.

It is not just the local businesses that have lost money, what about the clubs who were relegated because they did not spend money they did not have? Are all their fans supposed to say "poor old Pompey"?Who do you support,6/7 years of stick would infer the team to the west of Pompey, did you work in Portsmouth?Childish person , poopey? grow up your in the prem and your still worring about porsmouth and feel to write on this site i think your the one that needs to get life no problem with banter in real life but on here or the interent gets a bit silly every one trying to out do each otherBore off there is no point getting involved. Pompey know they are in a st situation, they've been laughed at by Saints fans now just leave it and wish them luck for the future, wouldn't want them slipping further down the leagues. I'm a Saints fan and there comes a point where the gloating is just pointless and childish. Let our results do the talking, have a little laugh at pompey then move on. No point rubbing salt in the wound, it's easy to forget that your neighbours are the most alike to us. Good luck pompey, from a saints fan.

Judging by his tweets, Clayton doesnt seem to interested in leaving. i personally would like to see him stay. i think he would fit in well with a 4-2-3-1 formation. playing alongside someone who can tackle (green?). Someone with pace on the wing and play snoddy in front of 2 holding midfielders.(12)(3)If he doesn't seem interested in leaving why wont he settle for a lower wage? I agree i would like him to stay, young hungry and developing to a decent championship player. But he is still developing and inconsistent, if he was playing anything to the standard of his demands then it would be a different story.He said he wanted to renew his contract, seems hes being a bit greedy unfortunately as i also rate himShow us then and sign a new contract and help us get to where we belong
In warnock we trust. MOTWake up. snoddy will leave and so will clayton. money talks and leeds dont have any

Millwall's chief executive Andy Ambler has categorically stated that Millwall will not be doing a lot of business during the summer.

However, as Hameur Bouazza is almost certain to leave Millwall as he said to an Algerian newspaper back in February, Millwall will be in need of a left winger and are said to be keeping tabs on Martyn Woolford of Bristol City and Mustapha Carayol of Bristol Rovers.

The lions are also short of coverage at left back and are rumoured to be interested in Scott Laird of Stevenage - should they not get promoted from League One.(5)(2)CAFC Fan - Still see progress though, I'm sure you'll finnish a lot higher than this year.

wolves have agreed to sell Johnson to reading for 4m(25)(19)For the love of god let this be true.There is a god .Why would we sign a CB who will want to be starting. Our two CB's have been amazing this season so Johnson should go somewhere else for first team football. We do need a CB but as cover.Does he need a lift, I'll drive !Reading only sign a 'type' of player, and he aint it. He is an alcy for a start. He unsettled your dressing room. There's no way Reading would touch him!

Also I've heard they're very close to signing Mariappa from Watford. (The right type of player)Why would he leave for a little club like readingHe will go Villa him and Dann will be their centre backs next seasonBuzzzzzzing if this is true...hope you reading fans appreciate him as much as we have lol.., only had an argument with him 2 days ago hahah wish id of heard this thenHe is not the right character for us, let alone the fact he has been a prominent figure in a terrible defence for a season and a half...
