Top Everton roumers

Everton will hold a press conference on the 1st of June to announce the signings of Joey Barton and David Nugent. Moyes has also had talks with slyvain Distan and Steve Sidwell which are still on going. sadly for the Blues Manuel Fernandes will return to Benfica becuase of the 12 million Price tag

Everton will also offload a few players them players being

Richard Wright - Ipswich - free

allesandro Pistone - parma - free

james Beattie - southhampton or Middlesbrough - 4 million

Arsenal Rumours:

Tired of hearing all the stupid rumours flying about. Liverpool will not get Henry, Torres, Eto'o or Villa. If anything Chelsea will get Villa.

Arsenal will not sell Henry or Gallas. Baptista will return to Madrid. Alliadiere will be sold for £2m. Reyes will return but Wenger will look to get rid of him for about £7.5m- if noone can can up with this (doubt A. Madrid or Sevilla will) so he will stay at Arsenal (until someone bids for him) . Fabianski will not be first team . it'll still be Lehmann . might cause Almunia to leave (maybe to Villareal) . Wenger will DEFINATELY sign Ribery. Wenger is also looking another player . Rio Mavuba (will be bought only if Gilberto leaves to Juve) . Senderos will stay at Arsenal unless Juve put in a bid of about £4m for him. There won't be many changes at Arsenal. Anelka will definitely not resign and Eto'o will not either (I wish he did tho') . Team will remain the same. expect strike force to be Henry and RVP, Adebayor and Bendtner subs. Youth players will breakthrough E. g. Connolly, Merida, (maybe Vela - if he can play) - these will only b Carling Cup appearances.

The team will look like:











Van Persie

This is probably what will happen. remember this is the REAL world not Football Manager.

- Carlos-

Sunderland will sign Teddy Sheringham to add experience to his side and also try to sign/ loan Solskjaer. Both would provode vast experience and the odd goal or 2.

Man United will sign Tevez from West Ham as he is a Man United fan, as shown when he wore a Man United shirt to a press conference. (if Tevez signs expect Man United to sign Saviola from Barcelona to help him settle in and on a free transfer culd well be the signing of the season!)

Also Man United will sign De Rossi as he was astounded by Man United's quality in the 7-1 hammering and they will tempt Mexes to join as Fergie is a long term admirer.

David Villa will not be coming to England because the weather is rubbish, he would rather spend time after training on a sunny beach than in a rainy England.

Berbatov will stay at Spurs he has had 1 good season in the Premiership and has not had the second season blues, however if he does well next season look out for a bid of £20mil+ from Fergie!

These transfers will happen F A C T

These will happen early June as Roy Keane wants to know his squad early

Ins: -

Dave Nugent 6m

Joey Barton 5.5m

Thomas Gravesen 2m

Alan Smith 4m or/ John O'Shea 4m

DannySimpson 850k

Sami Hyypia 2m

Wayne Bridge 3m

Giles Barnes 4m (only if Derby don't get promoted)

Robbie Fowler/ Ole Guunar Free

Jonny Evans season long loan

Outs: -

Varga, Cunningham, Clive Clarke, Stern John, Arnau, Tommy Miller, Stephen Elliot

for Giggs in the January window that's if Keane doesn't get him sooner!

Sunderland will sign Carr from Newcastle, Lennon from Celtic, Chris Eagles and maybe Alan Smith on loan from Manchester United and possibly Robbie Fowler.


Despite issuing a come and get me plea to Chelsea, Benni McCarthy will be subject to an £8.5 nillion bid from Manchester United in the summer and will be set to replace Louis Saha at Old Trafford unless Ferguson decides to snap up Klaas Jan Huntelaar.

Despite being impressive when playing, Saha is off to Lyon along with Silvestre whilst Heinze is off to Juventus.

Owen Hargreaves will definitely join whilst Nani is a possibility.


Man United Rumours

Listen people I have a very reliable source about the three main targtes SAF wants to sign this summer with 60million pounds they are as follows:

1st: Samuel Eto'o 27million Number 10

2nd: Owen Hargreaves 20million Number 4

3rd: Joao Moutinho 14million Number 18

A few other players may come in but no other big names. Plus these players will only come in in Man United can sell Heinze, Saha and Silvestre. A final player that could join for around 10million once again depending on if SAF can sell the other 3 is Daniel Alves. Scholes may leave to join Oldham Athletic. Giggs and Neville still have atleast one season left in them.

Crystal Palace are locked in a 3 way battle with Derby and Reading for the highly rated Marcel Seip. Peter Taylor has seen enough of him and is convinced he can cut it in the Prermiership, however Plymouth are sending out the message "keep your hands off".

Sidwell having medical at Chelsea on Monday the 14th may

Afc rumours

Arsenal are targeting a move for Cisse from Liverpool and if that fails expect a move for Michael Owen Henry in 100percent staying Arsenal have already agreed to sign babbel from Ajax and are also trying to sign Ribery and may make a move for Baines.

Willie donachie will be very busy in the transfer market for Millwall. top of his list are alexander{orient}, ide{Brentford}, smith{Derby}, spiller{Gillingham}, chorley{MK Dons}.

Ive heard from a reliable source that Moyes is interested in this lad and is looking to use James Beattie as a makeweight.

Moyes is also looking at Barton and Nugewnt but we all know that. Aswell as Darren Bent. He wants Fernandes but isn't prepared to pay £12mil for him.

Back to McGeady. Apparantly Moyes thinks he has great potential and wants him because of his natural ability and pace. He wants him to learn off Arteta who as we all know is now one of the most coveted players in the Premiership.

If Wigan stay up they will bring Roberto Martinez in as their new manager.

Wigan Athletic team 07/ 08 will be:



Hyypia - Free

Hreidarsson - 1.5m






Chopra - £3m

Harewood - £3.5m

Subs From:


de Zeeuw

Stefanovic - 1m


Mahon - 1.2m

Murphy - 1. 75m

Gonzalez - Loan



Ellington - £2m

Celtic rumours.

wgs is set to offload. Gravesen, Miller, Jarosik, balde only. he will replace them with Sidwell, appiah, distin, Barton, Robbie Keane will be our big signing!. cmon the hoops


Players coming in:

-Lucas (£8mil) done

-Pato (£12mil) fee agree-not yet done

-amauri (£8mil

-Simao (£13mil)

-Leto (£2mil) done

-Voronin (£free) done

-Padelli (£2mil) agreed-not done

-Marquez (£6mil)

. about 52mil

Players Leaving:

-Zenden (free)

-Fowler (free) done

-Dudek (free) done

-Cisse (£7mil)

-Bellamy (£8mil)

-Carson (loan) can be recalled-agreed

. about £15mil

These players may be a big surprise.

Cisse will be sold (more than likely to Arsenal)

Bellamy will be sold (probably Blackburn)

Fowler, Dudek, Zenden - no new contracts

Lucas is a done deal. He won't feature much even with his hefty price tag.

Amauri will come in to replace Bellamy-Rafa feels that this will be good business.

Pato will be back up to the other 4 strikers, but has huge potential.

Marquez will be made available and will try and displace Agger-tough job

Leto will be back up on the left wing.

Gerrard will move back in the middle quite often.

Sissoko and Alonso are part of Rafa's plans

Most of the reserve team will go out on loan. Carson will go out on loan again.

Rafa may even agree to sell Voronin as Werder Bremen will offer to pay 500k for him to replace Klose who is Barcelona bound. (unlikely though)

Again-Rafa won't spend on the big players. He will try to be shrews in the market- but will pay more money for younger players.

Rafa will have a massive squad next year:

GK: Reina Padelli (Carson)

LB: Riise Aurelio Insua

CB: Carragher Agger Marquez Hyypia

RB: Finnan Arbeloa

LM: Kewell Gonzalez Leto Garcia

CM: Gerrard Mascherano Sissoko Alonso Lucas

RM: Simao Pennant

ST: Kuyt Crouch Amauri Voronin Pato

At the beginning of the season, don't expect the likes of Marquez, leto, Lucas, Simao, Voronin, amauri and pato to play a lot. Rafa will ease them in so that we will have a good start to the season-players will know the other players well.

Sorry, no villa, eto'o, Torres, Tevez, owen, Henry etc

Former Wrexham FC midfielder, now manager at Peterbrough, Darren Ferguson was seen last week with none other than his assistant at Peterbrough, and former Wxm assistant, Kevin Russell walking towards Russell's house from the shops near Wrexham - what is wierd about that you say?

Russell lives away now as him and his wife are splitting - they were in town to speak to Wrexham and Wales forward, Chris Llewellyn about signing for the Posh. True.


Sheffield Wednesday to lose Chris Brunt and Richard Wood to Man City if Pearce is still in charge in the summer for a joint fee of 4mil.

Laws will use this money to bring in 4 targets from the lower divisions to make sure we don't break our wage structure

Man United are in talks with Barcelona over the price for Samuel Eto'o. David Gill will be flying over after next weeks FA cup final hoping to strike up a deal around the figure of 30million with the hope of the deal being done quietly to help fend off potetial competition form other clubs. The deal looks likely as Eto'o has still not properly rekindled his relationship with Ronaldinho and Rijkaard and Barcelona don't want this to affect them next season.



Fabianski (Done Deal)

Ryan Babel (for some pace and power down the wings)

Ribery (If the Babel deal does not go through)

Mavuba (to replace Flamini)

Micah Richards ( Boyhood Gooner)


Mart Poom

Freddie Ljungberg

Matheui Flamini

Julio Baptista

Jose Reyes

Asides from David Healy, Lawrie Sanchez also wants to bring another striker into Fulham to start a fresh strike partnership and will consider a swoop for Cardiff's Michael Chopra.


With Carson not happy to deputise to Reina, expect Benitez to send him out on loan again in hope that his value may rise from the £4 million it stands at this time. Relegated Charlton will audicioulsy try to swoop for the keeper, whilst Manchester City are interested and will persue an offer or loan deal. Elsewhere Middlesbrough are interested.


Iain Dowie has started talks with the Coventry board with a view to talking to Leicester City about their managerial vacancy, Tim Flowers his assistant is looking to take the Managers's post if Dowie as expected leaves.

The three LEICESTER city manager candidates are Paul Jewell, Iain Dowie and Chris Coleman. The Wigan manager will resing from Wigan this week and has already spoken to Mandaric about the role.6 million is the transfer pot at Leicester

Jose Mourinho is comtemplating offering around £10 million for Blackburn star, Benni McCarthy. Mourinho is considering how good a strike partnership McCarthy would form with Drogba and will decide whether to force Crespo back in the next few weeks.


More agent talk from PFA office in Manchester surrounding AFC's move for Eto'o. Previously mentioned 23m + Clichey but AFC have countered with 33m or 23m + Gallas. Henry doesn't want to go to Barca in exchange.

If 33m is accepted, Adebayor might be sold and possibly to United to replace Lyon bound Saha.

Might all be rubbish, but it's definitely more frequent speculation.

Following the influx of TV money and a predicted mega profit from the Ann Summers chain, expect major signings at St Andrews next season, with Stevie B expected to push Blues campaign for a UEFA cup spot (not just Prem survival) .

My brother is 2nd year apprentice at Blues and the word is that they will splash the cash on proven Premiership performers like Titus Bramble, Jlloyd Samuel and surprise, surprise. Peter Enckelman will be poached from Blackburn to provide cover for Doyle. Brucie will also move for Fowler, Sheringham and Sami Hyppia to bolster his young squad - not rumours, but FACTS.

In the summer Liverpool will have money to spend and the main players coming in will be; David Villa (Valencia), Carlos Tevez (West Ham) daniel Alves (Sevilla), Morten Gamst Pedersen (Blackburn) and Simao sambrosa (Benfica) . It sounds alot but the Liverpool squad needs the added quality if they are to make a genuine Premiership title bid next year. the squad will be:

G. K. Jose Reina, Scott Carson

R. B. Daniel Alves, Steve Finnan

C. B. Jamie Carragher, Sami Hyypia

C. B. Daniel Agger, Jack Hobbs

The rumour coming out of Pride Park is that Billy Davies will make a triple swoop of Plymouth Argyle's team.

It is believed Davies will make a second bid for highly rated Dutch defender Marcel Seip. According to sources a bid of 1 million is being touted for the ex-Hereenveen defender who has appeared in the Uefa Cup before, after their initial bid of £750,000 was met with disgust by Argyle manager Holloway.

Also on Billy Davies shopping list is Argyle's midfield duo of Akos Buzsaky and David Norris. It is thought Mr. Davies has also been extremely keen on these two players for a while now, and is expected to make a 3 million pound swoop for the pair.

Meanwhile, County have decided that at least 6 youth team players will be released from their contracts after being deemed surplus to requirements.

Hull city ins:

Kiegan Parker 500k

dean windass 100k

Lee peltier on loan

Danny Mills free


jon parkin 750k stoke

darryl Duffy 250k Swansea or Hibs

Michael bridges 200k notts forest

nicky forster 400k Colchester wants to go down south with family


Heard that Scott Parker is annoyed that Glenn Roeder has left the club, Roy Leane is also a big fan of the player, so if you put two and two together this could see Scotty Parker playing in Red and White stripes next season.

John Spicer (Burnly) will be joining his old boss Sean O'Drisscoll at Doncaster. Now Sean Thorton as been released.

Hi, just got back from Barcelona, and all the talk there is that eto'o will be signing for man. utd in the summer, Raul is going to Liverpool, and a little known player called Jose zapatos (the next Raul} from a lower league team will be signing for Spurs, .
