Richard Stearman – 100 k

  Wenger will not sign yaya Toure as he does not want too many African players in the squad as they will dissappear every few seasons to the ACN so expect a move for Barry as Wenger wants more of a british spine to his team, and he (Barry) is also hoping to play Champions League football next season so after biding his time he will make a bid of £10 million + Eboue (permenant) and Djorou (loan) MON will accept this because he is raging at the way that Liverpool have handled the situation.

Hleb will move to Madrid in a straight swap deal with wesley snEider and Wenger is hoping that this will settle van Persie down and show his intentions to the rest of the squad. other Ins will be Given, Richards, Frings, Ramsey and Young– another forward may be brought in on loan as we all know that Eduardo will not be back to his best until Christmas and Vela cannot be expected to play a major part. total= 55 million.

Leaving will be; Lehmann, Eboue, Djorou, Hleb

  Rangers will take up their first refusal option on chimbonda (part of the hutton deal) Walter may also try to make a loan deal for O'Hara.

  The Hammers signings–

damien Duff

jimmy bullard

Nicky shorey

james harper


Carlitos Ben moreira (look him up– quality passer of the ball, plays just behind Centre forward. Columbian Van Der Vaart)

  Sheff United are keen to sign Fulham defender Adrian Leijer on loan but face competition from Southend United. The Blades also want Darren Huckerby, Glen Little, and Tamika Mkandawire on permenant deals. Nabil El Zhar and Warren Feeney have been invited to pre–season training with the Blades.

  Mark Hughes wants:

Deco, Ronaldinho, Fred, Samir Nasri, Roque Santa Cruz, Shaun Wright–Phillips and Theo Walcott to form the deadliest attacking force in the Premier league.

  To the Newcastle fans who think they are a big club, you're not. Newcastle are a self proclaimed big club, only the fans think they are a big club, other supporters know that Newcastle are a mediocre team at best. the only reason Owen signed was because he was desperate for a move back to England and Newcastle were the only team who would pay extortionate amount of money a week for him. you will not sign top players at all, just other teams squad players that make no difference. how can you say Everton and Tottenham are not bigger than Newcastle, they are both in Europe next season. if anything Everton are one of 2/3 clubs ready to challenge the top 4.


Micah Richards – Aston Villa £22 million

Danny Haynes – Stoke City £2 million

Marlon Harewood – Stoke City £1.5 million

Michael Johnson – Tottenham £2 million + Tom Huddlestone

Thierry Henry – Torquay FREE TRANSFER (Just Jokin)

  James Milner will go to Liverpool as a swap deal for John Arne Riise. This deal is mainly because Keegan has little to spend.

Also Jermaine Pennant is an unlikely target for Fulham although this is unlikely to happen.

  Is Claudio Pizarro currently at Chelsea to be transfered to Manchester City?

  Ipswich will sign Shola Ameobi, Gareth McAuley, Peter Halmosi, Nikolce Noveski, Antti Niemi and Martin Paterson over the next few weeks.


The poster earlier in the week was spot on, my sources around Molineux confirm that Mick McCarthy has signed Shelbourne youngster Alan Riley for a nominal fee. Expect the promising Centre Back to be unenvied in the next few days.

  My Dad is mates with the physio at Burnley and Diego penny has passed a medical today. his signing will be anounced within 48 hours.

also coyle is in talks with three players who have impressed him so far at the euros, 2 are likely to sign.

Martin patterson will sign within a month at he wants to stay up north but in the championship. patterson has agreed personal terms but Scunthorpe want £575k. could go to a tribunal as patterson does not want to play in league 1.

Rochdales adam le fondre will join Oldham for £50 k.

unsworth will agree the contract as player/coach after speaking with fanily and friends later this month.

riorden will join Burnley for £850 k if they sell lafferty.

Burnley are also in contact with two players who impressed sandy stewart in training during his visit to the USA.

  Arsenal rumours

Nasri–completed after Euros £12.5 million

ramsey–done deal £5 million

frings–Werder bremen £4 million

zapata, metersaker, kompany, thurham to add strength to the backline, thurham looks most likeyly as current crop of youngsters are not far of EPL quality.

if a gk becomes available at a good price then?

also everyone mentions Toure in swap deal with Hleb but surely there must be a possibility of Deco

  To the Newcastle Fan saying there are a big club, your NOT, and your the one that needs to sort there head out. You do not have a chance of signing Eto'o, if he does not want to sign for Tottenham he definitely will not sign for you. Bentley? haha you wish he will more likely go to Tottenham as they will offer him a big payrise and if they do not get him Diego Capel will be the man coming in. Everton have missed out on Ramsey, but will still bring in a few players, they may possibly hijack Manchester Citys bid for Jo, but they will not be signing Moutinho or Veloso. Possibly Arshavin, Joaquin and Hoyte and Johnson to leave. Tottenham will be making many more signings this season as they have been the busiest so far and already signed three players, all top quality young players. as I mentioned Capel/Bentley coming in. Many will be leaving such as Robinson, Lee, Chimbonda, Kaboul, Rocha, Ghaly, Stalteri, Gardener, Berbatov, Taarabt (loan) and the replacements for Robinson and Cerny will be Akinfeev from CSKA Moscow and Emiliano Viviano from Brescia. New Right Back Left Backs to be coming in and a CDM. NEWCASTLE ARE not A BIG CLUB.

  Rafa to make the following signings:

Van Der Vaart

maik Taylor

  You really do get some absolute hum dingers on this site If you're going to put up a rumour, do not make it so ridiculous.

1. Liverpool do have first option on Nasri. I am sure you have all played Football Manager so you know what that means. In the grand scheme of things, for Liverpool it does not mean a thing. He's a player Rafa likes, but not on our limited budget. The reason he has not signed for Arsenal is simple, he does not want to. He's seen two of his good friends (Henry and Flamini) leave in consecutive seasons. He's likely to end up at Lyon.

2. Aguero for £21 million Are you insane? Chelsea have already doubled that and been rejected. This is the hottest prospect in world football. He will not leave this Summer. But when he does it'll be for BIG BIG money.

3. Joaquin to Everton? Possibly. All depends on who shows even a slight interest. His stock has gone down massively in the past two seasons. Rafa would still like him, but he represents a big risk at £13 million. Considering the two Davids (Villa and Silva) could both be available for under £20 million each, that is a big price. Joaquin is likely to end up at either Villareal or Atletico, maybe even back at Betis.

4. Ramsey. He's already made Man United look silly, he could do the same to Arsenal. They've had bids accepted, but he will keep his options open as long as possible. Do not rule out a late Tottenham bid. Possibly Villa.

5. No–one knows what is going on at Liverpool. This is EXACTLY how Rafa wants it. This Summers budget was built into the loan took out, they are included in these new SHOCK figures. Rafa needs to sell in order to afford the players he wants. He does not have to sell to buy. Waiting for Xabi to leave in order to buy Barry is common sense, like for like. Riises sale will pretty much pay for Dossena, and the money saved on Kewell will pay Degens wages. Once these three transfers are sorted, Rafa will focus on more ambitious targets using his actual budget + whatever he can bring in for the likes of Crouch, Pennant, Finnan, Itandje etc. Again, only a few people know who's on this list.

However. It's common knowledge that Rafa has been desperately trying to sort a deal for David Villa, based on installments etc. This deal was rejected as Valencia wanted a strong Euro 2008 to drive his price up. This has happened. Villas reaction to his goals were a clear message. He wants to play at Liverpool with Torres and Benitez. He knows people are trying to make it happen, and he wants it. The messages from Torres about signing big players are exactly the same as Gerrards pleas for Barry. It looks like Stevie has got his wish for his buddy to come play with him. Do not be remotely surprised if Fernando gets his wish too.

  "At last Liverpool have got the players they want Degan, Dossena, Nasri, silva, villa, barry and the surprise two Arsenal forwards Bentdner and Van Persie the cosrt is offset by Alonso, Riise, Finnan, itandje, hobbs, vorinin Crouch and a surprise big exit stay tuned for who"

Firstly, we are LFC not Chelsea. Secondly, if LFC signs Nasri and Villa then we will not sign Bendtner and RVP as well.

Unless a previous rumour about LFC being Nasri's boyhood team is true, Arsenal will sign him as terms have been agreed. LFC probably has first option (this would explain the low transfer price on Cisse) but if Nasri does not want to sign for LFC then he signs for Arsenal. By the way, well done to the Gunners on signing the talented Ramsey.

Apparently, LFC put a new offer of £15 million for Barry. Juve also placed an offer of £14 million for Alonso. I think Alonso is one of the best passers in the world. However, as long as he plays for LFC we will not win the EPL. He's too slow and not a good enough defender.

If Rafa has not signed up Valencia's Silva or Villa prior to the Euros then LFC will not sign them. Their values have increased considerably since the Russia game. If Rafa signed them both before the Euros, then he's a genius.

Bendtner makes sense because it seems that Crouch is leaving. Though I do not think Wenger would let him go to LFC. Bendtner would be a great signing if it happens.

Why would Rafa sign an injury–prone player like RVP when he could keep Kewell?

If any of the following sign for LFC then we will improve:

Villa or Bendtner

Nasri or Silva or Mancini or SWP

Barry or Michael Johnson

  Sorry I forgot to add:

If we sign any of these players then LFC will improve:

Villa or Bendtner or Gomis

Silva or Nasri or Mancini or Shaun Wright–Phillips or Ben Arfa

Barry or Michael Johnson


  Celtic will announce the signing of Clarence Seedorf at the end of June fact.

  It is confirm that current Spain hero–David Villa is heading to ARSENAL for 17.5 million and Arsene will put cesc more on attacking role to link up with Villa.

  . arsenal.

DUDU and THOMAS could be fit

for pre–season matches


Could Arsene Wenger makes CESC happy?

  The Ameobi deal to IPSWICH will go through only if a Premiership side do not jump in. Magilton is in for a busy two weeks as he aims to bring in three players possibly four adding two more late July, expect to see Gareth McCauly join for £1.5 million a left back on a free or a cheap one from Eastern Europe who's a international. There will also be a well known player signing shortly and a young Dutchman.

  Man United Rumours.

Me again from Florida. My source said the senior Glazer is very concern about Cristiano's rumours. So he called for a meeting with his son's and advisers from U. K. Source said that the Glazer's are in contact with NIKE during the meeting HEAR this NIKE was also following this rumours and have learned that Real Madrid and ADIDAS was already doing some business behind for Cristiano Ronaldo. NIKE was hesitant to inform Man United about it because they do not want to interfere with the issue. They only gave in when they we are ask by Glazer's to bump up Cristiano's yearly royalties what NIKE said is they are hesitant to match ADIDAS offer to REAL MADRID. Nike will offer Cristiano 60 thousand per week for seven years but they wer outbid by ADIDAS. NIKE even told the Man United board that have REAL Madrid investigate because ADIDAS was already lining up and designing his new shoes early this year but NIKE can not show any proof. Then the senior turned to his accountants and advisers (U. K. ) they think if Cristiano's head is with REAL MADRID now Man United will let him, meeting adjourn they will meet again in a week to discuss the plans with Sir Alex. The last message that the senior Glazer said that we can win without Cristiano look for the next Ronaldo. When the senior left the board room the brothers got pissed and said we do not care about transfer fee the REAL will offer they want something from Cristiano's camp. That is all folks Go UNited



– David vilaa round 12–22 mil

– Deco works well with new manager


Lampard and essian to Inter

Mourinho wants them in his team

  Celtic will sell Vennegoor of Hesselink to Lazio, and will get in Frei of Dortmund and Fletcher from Hibernian to replace him. It's also likely Balde will go to Wigan, with a replacement likely to be Simic of Milan. Strachan also wants some pace and guile on the right to match McGeady and could offer a deal to take Willhelmson to Parkhead to challenge Naka. The one remaining transfer will be a big one, likely to be a "number 10" type player, big rumours of who this top signing will be, and it is thought they will come from the Spanish League, or have previously played there, all points to Riquelme.



David Villa – 24 mill

Nasri – £15 million

Barry – £10 million + Crouch

Ricardo Quaresma – 15 mill

James Milner – 7 mill


Crouch 8 mill

Riise – 5 mill

keweel – free

and others

  wolves rumour

Heard a rumour from my dads mate who works at Wolves that berra could sign in the next few weeks ( more than likely after the euros). Also Wolves if they loose out on lafferty may make a surprise approach for Jamie Cureton from Norwich. Expect Chris gunter on loa from Tottenham. Looking up for the gold and black barmy army: )

  Would he cross the tyne–wear divide – Kenwyne Jones to replace The Duke for £12 million?

Would be a perfect replacement.

Phil in the Newcastle.

  Everton fans are crazy if they think Johnson will be a straight swap for Ashton/owen. there a completly different class.

DJ Campbell – £350,000

Calum Davenport – Free/Loan

Chris Eagles – £4 million


Big Dan Shittu – £4 million Rangers

Jay Demerit – £2 million Derby

Ellington – Done

Stewart – Done

Money in = Money out (with little to spend come January)

  My best mates Dad is an old friend of pete winkleman (MK Dons Owner) and he seems to think winkleman is looking for a new manager to replace Ince who could be going to Blackburn or become assistant manager Newcastle. If he goes Newcastle then we could see him replace Keegan early next season. Apparently Winkleman was in Bristol last week talking to Ian Holloway.?
