14 Apr 2013 09:01:09
Gills don't want Barcham back, but Gow could be a possible

Simon Grayson is on the radar of Blackburn. The former Rovers defender has only been at Preston for two months but this won't put Rovers off as they look to appoint a new boss for the sixth time this season. Michael Appleton only spent six weeks at Blackpool before moving across Lancashire.

Wont go there could be out of work again the end of may

13 Apr 2013 19:30:14
ha ha simon Grayson is happy at preston why leave a club on the up to go to one on there way down

Actually the surprise candidate is Tranmere's Ronnie Moore. He has been recommended to the Blackburn owners as they wish to recruit young players from the lower leagues.

14 Apr 2013 02:15:31
I'm sure whoever get's the Blackburn job will have a memorable three months in charge.

Anyone going anywhere near Blackburn needs their heads looking at. A club run by persons. {Ed010's Note - what?

Likely a predictive text error; they probably mean that the Venkeys are useless aunts.

I heard the same about Grayson, but whoever mentioned Ronnie Moore is playing silly beggars.

There is definately a surprise name to be announced as the new Blackburn manager, but 100% it is NOT Simon Grayson. It's a case of "watch this space", but it will be a big surprise to the football world!

Yes, not sure were you get info from!
But new manager will be a "surprise", at the moment, due to conractual reasons, all that can be said is new manager is not British!



13 Apr 2013 16:23:54
Argyle to sign Terrell Forbes and Jack Lester

We don't need Forbes as we have Branston

Terrel forbes just gone to Aldershot and he has a family I doubt it

In the summer Portsmouth set to re-sign Eric Gauthier Mahoto, Nick Jordan, Darryl Flahavan, Lewis Tallack, Steven Ramsey, Berlin Ndebe Nlome, Lee Molyneaux, Conor Clifford and Top Target of Pompey will be Nathaniel Mendez-Laing

Another joke post, linking Pompey with another list of ex-players. No truth in this whatso ever!

With the past couple of years you have just had with financial problems don't you think you would have learnt. I think portsmouth would have to start all over again and try and build up otherwise you could go down the bad financial route again

Wont be long till the administrators are back at Fratton then! overestimating your budget again I see, you lot never learn!

13 Apr 2013 18:37:37
pompey should have a transfer embargo placed on them its a joke how many times they been in admin

Is this a massive joke or is this actually true where did you hear this information? :) play up Pompey

The problem with Pompey is they have been poorly managed from owners to chairmen and previous management and that's why Pompey have bad financial problems best of luck to PST and I hope they are aware of the problems they face but are sensible in getting the players within a strict wage cap and not go through the roof with wages and end up in embargo which will give them administration again

Pompey fans gettimg over inflated ideas about their club again, won't be long till they go under lol

Pitiful to see such uninformed comment from so many. The PST will run a tight ship, within budget. Most, if not all, of the players mentioned will be on free transfers and their wages affordable. So, Pompey will start their rebuild an no number of negative comments, probably from saints fans, will make a jot of difference.

People have been saying that we will fold in august for example for the last 3 years :/

Well let's just see eh pompey fans, let's just see if you can't help yourselves yet again, the trouble with you lot is you've got ideas above your station, you are a small club and you hate being in the shadow of your bigger neighbour in Southampton, that's why you keep messing up, just accept it and you might just keep your club, try flying too high and like icarus you will just fall from the sky because you will get burnt again!

Saints fans are just jealous because Pompey fans actually cared enough to raise the money to buy their club when it was in trouble, unlike them! Pompey are now the biggest fan owned club in the country and under the stewardship of real fans, they will be run properly and over the years steadily grow.

15 Apr 2013 12:40:08
Another load of old tosh posted by someone posing as a Pompey fan. 99. 9% of Pompey fans would distance themselves from such ill informed rubbish. Anyone can go through Pompey squad lists of the past three or for years and link us to loads of ex-players of ours. The truth is that Guy Whittingham (or whoever the new manager may be) will be operating strictly on a tight budget with all signings being freebies. Having seen the side that he has assembled in the latter half of this season I fully expect most of this year's squad to sign on again and there will be a handful of judicious additions.



13 Apr 2013 14:38:05
andy johnson and fitz hall are two of eddie howe's targets

Andy johnson are you joking

14 Apr 2013 14:30:45

Stoke City Ins and Outs if premier league survival:


Wilson Palacios - £1,000,000 - QPR
Peter Crouch - £5,000,000 - QPR
Kenwyne Jones - £3,000,000 - Villa/Swansea
Michael Kightly - £2,000,000 - ANYWHERE!
Asmir Begovic - Manchester Un. /Arsenal - £8,000,000


Andreas Cornelius - £5,000,000 - 75%
Tom Huddlestone - £3,000,000 - 30%
David Hoilett - 4, 500,000 - 20%
Martin Olsson - £3,000,000 - 80%
Rod Fanni - £2, 500,000 - 60%

All depends on whether we stay up. If these go through I can see this as Starting XI and subs:


Olsson - Huth - Shawcross - Fanni

Hoilett - N'Zonzi - Adam - Huddlestone - Shea


Manager: Martin O'Neill

You'll do well to get that much for Kightly.

Cornelius is going nowhere. Fact.

You really disappoint me. I would agree palacios, crouch, kightly should be sold maybe jones for the right price atleast 5mil, 8mil for begovic is a joke since we've been offered 15mil from arsenal and I think maybe lose whitehead. I would agree with the signings bar fanni we do not need him and should look at another winger like garath mccleary and another defender like Lescott and play:

Cameron Shawcross Lescott Olsson
McCleary Adam Huddlestone Hoilett

Manager: TONY PULIS!
He is a great manager who has brought us up from nowhere into the premier league be grateful
(16yr old stokie)

Stoke ain't safe yet and secondly qpr will struggle to shift most of those players they have due to the size of there wages so bringing in the like of crouch/palacios very unlikely to happen

I don't see Swansea paying £3 million for Jones in the summer window when they can buy some real class from Spain or Holland for that money
even though they may have paid it in January to cash on on the stupid Sunderland bid for Danny Graham

Everything is beleivable bar crouchs price hoilett and fanni

Swansea don't want Jones.

O'Neill as manager - so your planning to be relegated next year if you can't pull it off this year



13 Apr 2013 11:54:09
Benfica's Rodrigo is attracting interest from West Brom, but the Baggies face competition from some big European teams.

13 Apr 2013 14:57:58
West Brom, along with all other premier league teams, will receive £65 million at the end of the season and spend the money on Lukaku and several other players to strengthen an already strong team.

Would adore this rumour! Only if it was true : (

Me too

Baggies to buy Rodrigo and Le Fondre.
Taider from Bologna and Hoilett from QPR.
Mavinga and Popov on full time basis.
They are to offload many such as PO, Thomas, Fortune etc.

I personally hope they sign Lukaku on loan but he will probably end up at Swansea : (

Le fonder and Rodrigo would be great



13 Apr 2013 11:53:22
West Brom interested in Modena midfielder Dejan Lazarevic and Rennes defender Chris Mavinga.



13 Apr 2013 11:06:59
Brighton have made a third offer for Virgil van Dyke, club officials in Holland trying to finalise deal with a pre contract before the window opens, THe club hope to offer Gus a budget that can take club another step forward.
Season tickets already sold for next season in excess of 20,000 (argus)

He will come to us

Not gunna happen I asked him on teitter and be said he wanted to stay where he was! : (

Then why has he told everone one he wants to come other to England to play his football



13 Apr 2013 09:54:29
barcelona will bring in liverpool keeper reina this summer or a fee around 8-10 million. liverpool will replace the spaniars with stoke keeper asmir begovic

Reina would never be a back up keeper, thanks to de gea's youth he already struggles to get international selection.



13 Apr 2013 09:52:42
swaswansea city will battle with tottenham over the loan signing of madrid winger jose callejon

And who do you think will win that battle?

Michael Laudrup was an ex real madrid player so could tempt him to the liberty. Highly doubt they are after him though.

It would be closer than the above post suggests due to Swansea's reputation for playing young players also they're strong link with Spanish players would be attractive to callejon. I doubt it would happen as he's getting game time at Madrid but it would be brilliant for the swans if he did

Not Swansea unless they unload one of the 4 wingers on the books

And if it were to be the case 1 of the wingers leaves it probably would be dyer

Liverpool and espanol want him too



13 Apr 2013 09:52:02
xabi alonso will follow jose mourinho to chelsea this summer if liverpool fail to meet madrids demands. the player would love a move back to anfield but its looking inceasingly unlikly so a miove to chelsea is on the cards.

He would never go to Chelski.

He wouldn't leave real to go to a faltering Chelsea in euro cup

He will stay or go back to real sociedad or liverpool not chelsea



13 Apr 2013 09:49:29

13 Apr 2013 09:33:54
bret holman will join norwich this summer along with birmingham defender curtis davies and forrest midfelder lewis mcgugan

Only one that could be a possible target is curtis davies, but even that I think has passed now, Norwich seem to be looking at a better breed of players now rather than championship players.

Brett Holmen will not be signing!



13 Apr 2013 09:31:48

13 Apr 2013 08:14:01
Swindon town are to make a move for Brimscombe manager Phil baker. Baker has taken Brimscombe to successive promotions in none league football. This guy is going to be the next big name in management. K Mac to step down to under 21 manager

All I want is for KM to step down because at the end of today will we more than likely be in 7th place with no chance of qualifying to the championship which I've wanted to happen for 4-5 years

Km must go after today. Get anyone in the know what they are doing we would be so much better off with out him.

14 Apr 2013 18:05:39
The board got rid of dicanio he new we needed more players to go up that's why he resigned k mac is not the problem it is a board with no ambition they wanted the spur players before k mac became manager I don't think they were his choice he just went along with it

This rumour is about as true as the rumour that the moon is made of green cheese



13 Apr 2013 01:58:04
Walsall and Oldham scouts spotted at Accrington Stanleys home game against Morecambe on Friday night, the scouts are thought to be watching winger Romuald Boco who has scored 10 goals this season from 32 games and is out of contract in the summer

Sounds promising if Latics can get him. There are several of our own nurtured talent that are out of contract this summer so don't think many contracts are going to be handed out willy nilly. If he's that good though he'd jump at the chance to sign for Oldham



13 Apr 2013 01:52:18
Guy Whittingham set to be Portsmouth boss in the next season, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing will be the top target of Portsmouth in August.

Guy deserves the job and Mendez Laing is an exiting player with a lot of potential.

NML will not be signing for Pompey. Whittingham sent him back to Peterborough when he took over as caretaker back in November.

Mendez laing is slower then Ryan Giggs

Well you need to get your eyes sorted out he is speedy as



13 Apr 2013 01:33:34
Rumours round Highbury is that Jon Parkin is to leave the Cod army in the summer, as the clause in his contract which will trigger another year will not be activated

Parkin is being strongly linked with a move to league one side Walsall {Ed034's Note - I went to the forest v cod army game t the start of the season and I didn't realise how big this guy was. How has he done for you guys??

No chance Walsall will want Parkin, he is immobile and would fit in with the way they play.

Parkin none starter our style of football would have to be changed doubt its going to happen



13 Apr 2013 00:08:20
Derby 100% interested in Simeon Jackson. Not sure if he's going to sign but we definitely want him. I have a very good source and we have been scouting him a lot. Not sure if he'll sign, they'll be a lot of interest.

I reckon by all the posts that Derby are signing about 40 players in the summer.

Will face big competition for him but I think Derby could pull off some great signings this summer to go alongside their flawless youth integration set up.

According to one norwich fan he might be moving back to Canada?!. We have a good youth set up now but I wouldn't go as far as saying flawless. I do hope we get Jackson though.
