Derby county to sign Krystian pearce
on free transfer and get Reda johnson
in make sure they have cover for the
defence.As Captian Shaun barker has
a lengthly injury.Both were seen on
Seperate occasions at moor farm and
Pearce has stated his desire to move
up the football ladder without moving
out of the area.(5)(18)Why would Reda take a step backwards and go to a small club like Derby when he's at the "MASSIVE" Sheffield Wednesday
Dream on pal

If Southampton complete the loan capture of Thibaut Courtois they will return to make an ambitious move for Kevin De Bruyne for the season to replace departing Jason Puncheon. Chelsea are keen for De Bruyne to get Premier League experience before making his first appearance for them.

Thibaut Courtois is attracting interest from Real Madrid, so he's obviously not gonna go there(6)(19)If Saints do manage to reach the Premiership and i'm praying so hard that we do,judging by what we saw last night against Reading,and yes, I was there,so i'm not just an armchair spouter,we are going to have to have a massive spend on players capable of handling it. On last night's showing we don't have many who can make the step up.Our defence is slow to the point of embarrassment,
midfield needs a bit of pace and pep,and if
we'd had someone like Roberts up front alongside Ricky,oh well,we didn't.No good saying Saints til' I die,that scares me,been Saints since 1952,got a right to a little moan.

Liverpool are set to appoint Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes as their new 'Director of Football'. The 66 year old is expected to leave the German club in the summer with his contract set to run out.(6)(29)


13 Apr 2012 18:58:34
Marc Stimson favourite ahead of Lee Bradbury, Liam Daish, Stuart Ritchie, Frank Gray and Steve Claridge to get the Havant & Waterlooville manager's job in next 2 weeks after Shaun Gale was sacked a fortnight ago. Steve Johnson & Adie Aymes have done a Stirling job as caretaker managers winning their last 3 matches.(7)(10) 



13 Apr 2012 18:10:45
wolves will only appoint the new manager at the end of the play offs because there list includes
only compensation to pay is for Poyet all the rest have clauses in contracts.
Morgan is in talks with John Rudge about director of football job but seeking his advise about next manager(7)(32)John rudge he is old has the hills morgan taking the p againIt is sooooo very funny when Wolves fans get on here. Mate your club will not attract anyone near that quality now, your too late.


13 Apr 2012 16:42:19
Re Reading outs: Kanu to Watford - Kanu doesn't even play for Reading, he's at Pompey.(8)(5)He means Hal Robson-Kanu who does play for ReadingEven if it was Pompey's Kanu, isn't he 150 years old? (An exaggeration, I admit). {Ed025's Note - yes mate...he,s 165


13 Apr 2012 15:30:09
Middlesbrough, Ipswich, Nottingham Forest and Southampton are all set to offer Grant Leadbitter a deal when his contract at Portman Road expires. It seems Ipswich are paying lip service to the possibility of him staying here and the majority of the fans are expecting him to head to Boro.

Ipswich likely to look in the free agency markets for a central midfielder and keeper this off season with any transfer budget spent on the defence.

The most likely keepers heading to Portman Road are Joe Lewis or Ben Williams who are both out of contract with their clubs.(12)(5) 

Leadbitter is going to Middlesbrough

13 Apr 2012 14:45:58
Jason Pearce will join either Burnley or Leeds at end of season(24)(17)Leeds have contacted Portsmouth already with a bid of around £800k, think he's worth more personally.


13 Apr 2012 14:14:21
just seen in the paper that Manchester United have made Eden Hazard their number one target this summer.(24)(20)


13 Apr 2012 14:04:58
Young Crystal Palace player Wilfried Zaha looking for an escape route from Palace. Plenty of PL sides interested in capturing the youngster. Teams include Man utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Newcastle. Likely destination is to Anfield, as he feels he has more of a chance of first team football.(19)(16)


13 Apr 2012 13:24:13
Cardiff City to make summer moves for Marcelo Trotta and Alexander Kacaniklic from Fulham and Manchester United's Tomasz Kuszczak(8)(10)Strangely all these players have been on loan to Watford. Obviously a Watford fan having some fun with Mackay always taking players from them. Nothing in this at all.Trust malkay to want all watford have had,get your own imaginationYou are welcome to Trotta
KaKa - no chance
Kuszczak - even less

I am a burnley supporter and my mate is good friends with Brendan flood who said to him that Newcastle are offering 6.5 mill for rodriguez and Fulham are offering 9 mill don't believe me watch this space -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------(9)(31)We will watch you be proved an person thenAFAIK, his contract is up in June and could go on a free. even if he signed an extension, why would anyone pay 6.5m, let alone 9m?


13 Apr 2012 12:04:59
Just found this site- my brother is a lawyer working for sunderland's transfer office where logistical side of deals and negotiations take place.

Sunderland already have a number of offers on the table- Michael Kightly and Kevin Doyle from Wolves (combined £8m), Heskey on a free from Villa (contract is up soon and they are talking to his agent) and lastly Danny Rose from Spurs (£3m)(10)(41)Yes very reliable.I think you are talking your brother out of a job

PuzzledIs your brother imaginary like you rumour?Lawyers have nothing to do with contracts they represent you in court. I think you mean a solicator who would be checking small prints in contracts! way to make up a rumour and pass it off as real dumass.Just found this site? Brothers a lawyer at the club come on suggest next time you go. Im making this up these are the players I'd like us to sign and what I think they are worth.8 million for Doyle and Kightly? I think you find Kightly is out of contract end of the season so can move for freeSounds about right paying a lot of money for crap like every year
HThere are no lawyers in terms if football as people who deal with the players contracts are called agents
PHYScO!!! {Ed025's Note - actually they are called...parasites!!


13 Apr 2012 10:58:00
West Brom are expected to sell last seasons star striker Peter odemwingie to fund west broms bid for fulham star andy Johnson. Super Roy H brought him for fulham back in 2008 and is a personal favourite of Roys. The deal expected to be about 6 million for him and selling odemwingie for about 7 million. Take note very reliable source!(7)(34)Yes, reading it on BBC sport is realiable :/

melwing28Is that the same Andy Johnson who's contract is up end of season? Don't think you source is that reliable. 6 million? Don't think so!Haha he's a free agent you person back to the drawing board, don't read to much into everything the Mirror tells youIf the Baggies are gonna pay a fee for someone out of contract then they deserve to get fleeced.Why would you pay 6 million for a player who is out of contract in the summer.(Fulham supporter)


13 Apr 2012 10:30:22
Hope it will be a good game tonight 1vs2 fancy saints though with reading's midfield situation(11)(9)Im praying Leigertwood is back today, will be tough without him, haven't seen a great deal of Mullins but Brynjar is more than capable of filling in, our main threat is going to be from set pieces though, if you dont concede too many corners and dont give away silly free kick you will be fineWe're normally quite good at defending set pieces, hopefully we will get an early goal, we normally win when we doCome on Reading!I'm a Leeds fan and I hope Browns thuggish behaviour dosent have a barring on Reading going up,Ie losing one off your best midfielders. good luckSaints all the way but I hope bot teams get promoted.I would love a draw, just to apply more pressure to West Ham. They thought this league would be a walk in the park and have been found out.Will be a good game we both deserve promotion , I don't care about finishing second I just want promotion come on urzzzz


13 Apr 2012 10:22:57
Swindon are interested in grimsby forward Liam Hearn to get the goals in league 1, looking at a bid of around 600,000 not 250,000 as said below(6)(10)Rubbish no way will we buy a conference player for 600k absolute garbage.That sounds realistic!What a load of tosh offer that and you could buy the full grimsby team lolCan you play football?

Ipswich Ins
Brad Guzan - Aston Villa - Free Agent
Paul Taylor - Peterborough - £1 Million
Jason Pearce - Portsmouth - £500,000
Harry Maguire - Sheffield United - £800,000
Matt Lowton - Sheffield United - £1 Million
Matt Richie - Swindon Town - £700,000(4)(38)Ipswich all of a sudden have aload of money where from? no way will Ritchie leave unless it is near to the figure Paolo wants and £700k isnt the figure Ipswich need to get there calculator out of this rumour is true but i dont think it is but if it is they need to add another 100% on to the figure you have quoted we turned down 600k from Bournemouth in january and Paolo wants more if he goes.You will not get Pearce for £500k, he cost Pompey more than that and is club captain and almost certainly player of the season. Whilst it's true that the Administrator will accept lower bids than normal, it will take something more like £800k to get Pearce.Sheffield United will want more for Lowton and Maguire!I'm a town fans and all of these rumours are rubbish. Poster 1 we are bank rolled by Marcus Evans who made 100m profit this year and regulally allows transfer kitties of 4-5m a season which we always seem to throw away. Altough it is expected we are now tighting our belts with the new rulings coming in. Where have you been last few years?ITFC fan here the only one that may happen is Pearce should Pompey go down and I believe an offer in the region of 1 - 1.5m would be needed. Contract negioations broke down in Janaury with the player when combined offered for Ward and Pearce was accepted. Lowton has been scouted several times but looks to be staying with Sheff Utd. Other rumours are media hype.ITFC Fan, Brad Guzan would not be on a free, as he signed an extention to his contract until 2013, so we would have to pay a fee, I believe Guzan would like to move from Villa as his chances of first team games is deminishing, as Villa are looking else where in europe for another keeper to understudy Shay Given, so Ipswich would be a great opportunity for the regular No 1 slot he craves for, so come on Brad join the Tractor Boys, and you can coach Coddy Cropper our 2nd string American KeeperI highly doubt this considering Sheffield United turned down a £3.5 Million bid for Maguire in January from Newcastle. Also other Championship clubs have been looking to spend at least £2 Million for Lowton. Also what makes you think Harry n' Matt would want to go to Ipswich for?If you think you'd get the 2 sheffield united players for 1.8 million, then you need to wake up and get real.
And why would they leave the blades, who are going up, and are a much bigger club than ipswich.
Stop posting carp..

The planned takeover of Coventry City is close to collapse. The takeover was dependent on the Sky Blues remaining in the Championship.

With relegation all but certain, the bid from Hoffman and his consortium will be cancelled. This will leave Coventry facing administration and next season starting in League One on minus 10 points.



I thought you only got points deducted if you enter admin during a season? Ed is this the case or not? {Ed001's Note - no, you get a points deduction anyway.}

The takeover is not dependent on Championship survival. The investors (headed by Hoffman) are waiting to see where we are before making their decision. As you were, nothing to see here.

What a load of tosh , they are waiting to see if we go down , cus then the value of the club will drop even more .


The club's value can't drop any more, it is worthless. In debt and running at a loss, with no stadium of its own.

The entire deal was dependent on Coventry staying in the Championship. But now Coventry are all but certain to be relegated, there will be another £4 million drop in revenue.

One of the consortium was shocked that some Coventry fans were boycotting the club in its hour of need. Irrespective of who the owners are, this wealthy individual was of the opinion that fans should support their club, not leave it in the lurch.

The consortium has collapsed. Hoffman may try and go it alone if the club enters administration, to try to prevent liquidation. But with no takeover imminent, the club will probably go into administration and start next season in League Two on minus 10 points.(8)(8)Sorry - meant to say "Start League One on minus 10 points" ;)Sounds very plausible. Cov in deep troubleDont u diss my club if u remember not long ago cov wear in the prem WE WILL B OK NEXT MAN CITY I SAY even if we do go down we will bild a team to go up to the prem sisu out rich person in watch this space

Marc Pugh has rejected a summer move to Derby, stating that his desire is to play for home town club Burnley and reach the premier league.(15)(15)He needs to think carefully about this,by the time Burnley get back into the Premier
League he'll be too old to play.Silly boy.Well he can do one or the other can't he? Not going to the prem with BurnleyHe's obviously not bright. Derby are one of the best clubs in the Championship, aside from Peterborough, at taking lower league players and nurturing them into much better players. There's not Premier League interest in players like Brayford, Bailey, Robinson for no reason.I'm a burnley supporter and yes,we're not ready for the prem yet but with the youth policy that EH has brought to the club along with the already established senior pro's the future for BFC looks promising,the club is being run in the right way and with a young ambitious manager then who knows,im not going nto say we WILL go up next season but id imagine we'll finish higher than this season......Daz.a arealistic Burnley fan(great site by the way)

Gianluca Nani is going to Watford as techncial director.(4)(12)


12 Apr 2012 22:47:48
Peterborough United are set to sign in the summer Liam Hearn from Grimsby, Michael Bostwick from Stevenage, Stephen Gleeson from MK Dons, Tom Kennedy from Leicester, Michael O'Coonor from Scunthorpe and Gillingham's Argentine keeper Gazziniga(9)(25)


12 Apr 2012 22:24:26
Samuel 'Sammy' Ameobi has been linked with a loan move to the South Coast. Southampton have thought to be wanting to boster their attacking options for the Premiership. Newcastle will be willing to let Ameobi, brother of Newcastle legend Shola Ameobi, go on loan as the prospect of european football will provide lack of first team football for the young englishman.(9)(16)If we manage to get Europe that will provide more football not "a lack of first team football".
Plus sammy was well involved in the 1st team before he got injured.Possibly should we bring in some more forwards. but shola, newcastle legend? really?He is injured


12 Apr 2012 21:27:01
Plymouth want to sign vine(12)(9)


12 Apr 2012 21:26:41
Load of rubbish. Forest will be sold within the next 6 weeks. Negotiations already finalised. The only thing that will potentially stop the deal going ahead is relegation. Not my words! came from a director.(12)(9)This is nonsense. No such deal has been completed and there are grave concerns at all levels within Forest


12 Apr 2012 20:53:25
If Southampton complete the loan capture of Thibaut Courtois they will return to make an ambitious move for Kevin De Bruyne for the season to replace departing Jason Puncheon. Chelsea are keen for De Bruyne to get Premier League experience before making his first appearance for them.(15)(13)Ffs, would you please stop tempting fate before coming on here with your bs.The same keeper that real madrid are on about signing? get realCounting your chickens before they have hatched springs to mindCan you imagine what saints fans will be like on here once they do get in the premier. It'll be Saints are signing Ronaldo, Rooney and Messi to help saints champions league expectations.What a load of balls. Courtois is going to stay at Atletico for another year!
De Bruyne will be straight into the first team squad least, may even start.


12 Apr 2012 20:11:58
Charlie Adam set to leave Anfield in thhe summer. Likely destination is Newcastle United. Adam wants to stay in the north. NUFC look to push for a top 4 finish next season by signing high profile players.(11)(41)Charlie Adam is simply not premiership class.No chanceIdeal player will give 100% & good value 4 money may not go well with Pardew but will with Mike AshleyAdam will be at liverpool next season defo1. i doubt newcastle will spend much the summer
2. pardew says last season hes looking for players who can help us play with a quick tempo (adam doesnt fit this)
3. no where near as good as cabaye or tiote, and his transfer fee would be inflatedI am a Newcastle fan and When at Blackpool, I said "Sign him up" and still did before he joined Liverpool but now I am kind of glad he never joined us, where would he play? Tiote and Cabaye one of the best centre midfielders and partnership in league while Charlie Adam one of the worse in the top halfYes, he's nowhere near good enough for Newcastle - may go to a newly promoted side for 2/3 m {Ed003's Note - rubbish}


12 Apr 2012 19:13:42
Brighton have had an offer (in principle) accepted by the Palace board to take Zaha for a fee of around 4million plus Dunk and Mackail smith in the Summer. Will be announced on Friday, story doing the rounds at national papers as we speak.(7)(51)They rejected 5 from LeicesterNo player in championship worth that sort of moneyThere are players in the Championship worth that sort of money but Zaha aint one of 'em, yet.Cant wait to see what all the fuss is about when he come to reading in a couple of weeks


12 Apr 2012 19:11:25
French club Caen are keen on signing Arsenal and Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh, if they manage to beat relegation to the second division.(12)(10)....Or he could just go to Barnet

French club Nancy are keen on signing young Tottenham midfielder Alex Pritchard on loan for the whole of next season, if he signs a new deal at White Hart Lane.(16)(1)


12 Apr 2012 19:09:04
Leicester City have made a bid for Celtic and Republic of Ireland defender Darren O'Dea, currently on loan at Leeds.(8)(29)Absolute rubbish as he is out of contract in the summer.They can have him.Have him Leeds will be more than happy to take mills, beckford and king off your hands seen as Leicester are going backwards


12 Apr 2012 19:05:09
Emile Heskey interested in a return to Leicester City in the summer(30)(15)Heskey only interested who,s going to give him biggest pay dayWhich would probably be Leicester, unless city are interested, i think he'd add alot to the current city sidePlease no ?


12 Apr 2012 19:04:45
Norwich will look to snap up young Leeds defender Aidan White when the players contract expires in the summer(28)(10)This rumour is on Wiki player info, Leeds trying to offer him deal to stay, however with Bates offering peanuts no doubt he will choose to go to Norwich and premier in the summer with compensation to be decided by tribunal because he is under 24 and no doubt Bates will want way more than he is currently worth,
Irish U21 player who has great potential to make the step up, just the kind of player he would go for, and Norwich need another left back to provide competition for Tierney as Drury will almost certainly not be offered a new contract due to his age.


12 Apr 2012 18:49:38
If Portsmouth stay in business in the summer, manager Michael Appleton is keen on signing 19 year old midfielder Fraser Fyvie from Aberdeen.(6)(16)He was watching Joe Partington Bournemouth midfielder last week on the advice of Pompey captain Jason Pearce ex team mate of PartingtonHow will he afford them? The club's debt has risen to £53million, the club is worth less than a 5th of that. They won't survive. Best option is to get a phoenix club going, and hope some of the local heroes go with itThik buying players where ther is also interest from Premier and Championship clubs is unlikely. However, to the post stating the scale of the debt, he or she might also consider that there are still large sums in parachute payments to come to the club and that a CVA will be progressed to take up the remaining debt. Pompey are in poor shape, but the post ignores the route away from the debt mentioned.Portsmouth will be sold for what Trevour Birch can get, its a waiting game as pompey who are more than likely to be relegated to div1, will be sold for say £5 to £10 milllion, the rest of the debt will be wiped out, so all the small businesses that are owed thousands of pounds will get around 2p in the pound, an absolute disgrace, Chainrai will have to accept only around £2 million rather than his £17 million he's owed, so h3e might be the highest bidder to try and get his money back


12 Apr 2012 18:48:27
2 signings Norwich have lined up and will be completed by the end of the summer transfer window are Scottish duo Charlie Mulgrew and Jordan Rhodes(22)(24)

12 Apr 2012 14:49:37
i have it on good authority that aston villa will be parting company with alex mcleish at the end of the season apparently villa have already approached roberto martinez at wigan due to the fact he is leaving wigan in the summer, lerner has lost patience with mcleish and has always been peeved about not getting martinez first time round he sees him as the ideal manager to take villa forward, certain players will come with martinez,

hugo rodallega
luis figureoa
also martinez will be given a 30 million transfer kitty to get villa on the road to europa league qualification

a deal has already been set up to bring joe cole to villa, az alkmaar defender moisander and jozy altidore will arrive at villa matt etherington from stoke will join
villa and nico krancjar and james milner will arrive on season long loan deals
players that will be outgoing

there will be a marquee signing at villa and apparently the player being mentioned is hamsik from napoli(6)(55)Marek Hamsik... To Aston Villa... Now I have seen everything! Wake up man!If Hamsik signs for Villa then I'm replacing Messi at Barcelona (who has cited Doncaster Rovers FC as his 'dream move')If villa are getting rid of mcleish why have the board allowed him to sign a player for next season BRETT HOLMAN.Lol as if villa would get hamsikWas believable till the hamsik bit


Custom Made xMartinez will not quit Wigan, nor will they sack him, even if they go down. So this rumour is utter tosh.Etherington has been interesting Villa but McLeish will stayWake up,eck will be here next season,he aint that bad anywayLol I wish mate if they all happen I'll take you on an all expenses paid trip to Amsterdam and you can fill your boots son in all the local 'services' {Ed003's Note - Ooo, can I come please, could do with some new clogs}Where are villa gonna get 30 million from and who would wanna goIreland & albrighton won't be leaving.
but hamsik! your having a laugh mate!


12 Apr 2012 13:41:39
Racing Santander are interested in Diego Arismendi the Stoke youngster. They were one of two Spanish sides keen when he joined the Potters. A loan deal has been discussed for next season.

QPR and West Ham are the latest sides to show an interest in Kenwyne Jones

Stoke have made an audacious bid to sign Michael Carrick in the Summer

Aston Villa are interested in Matty Etherington

Jarvis will be Stoke's first Summer signing.

Stoke are the latest team to show an interest in Hoffenheim's Sigurddsson if the player becomes available permanently

Robert Huth has all but told Stoke that he will not sign a new contract. Interestingly Hoffenheim are one of the clubs interested in the German.

On a side note- Demba Ba has reportedly been struggling with a swelling on the tissue on his knee that resulted in him failing his Stoke medical. The player picked up a knock in the ACON second game and felt a reaction at Swansea.(6)(18)I come back to these fair pages and within five or six sentences, I see 'Carrick to Stoke'...Arismendi barely a youngster now! not a bad player really we've got him at hudds till end of season..... some1 described his style as flatter to deceive the other and thats exactly what he is spreads it about nicely but without making any in roads. isn't blessed with pace and would struggle to play anywhere above bottom of hampionship at push! (not worth more than 500k)Huth staying at Stoke due to FINANCIAL REASONSHush don't need signs a contract he's got four year run on the one he's got .that kills Ur rumours .I think you need to do some research aboveTo the above re Carrick.........Stoke did almost take him on loan this season but due to a signing not coming off for man U the deal fell through. Robert Huth has ONE year left on his contract and Stoke have offered him a new one some months back but he hasn't signed so get your facts right ...........that kills ur point :-)Garvis is a done deal. AT EVERTONHe may well be whoever he is.

In the mean time Jarvis will join Stoke it seems. I love these 'done deals that folk make up :-0Ricky Gervais will be ideal for Everton

saints will sign two full backs a goalkeepr a centre back a centre mid and a forward clyne palace whittingham cardiff butland birmingham upson stoke bridge and defoe(6)(21)Defoe? He was home sick at pompey, very much a family orientated guy won't leave london!No chance Whittingham will join Saints. If he moves from Cardiff it will be for an established premier league side. He's also just signed a new long term deal so it would need to be a hefty sum to get him.This is porving you actually get promoted. 1 point in 7 is hardly promotion form is it? Why would Clyne join you when he's got the likes of ManU, Spurs, Newcastle looking at him?

Stoke have been tracking Joe Cole's availability after failing to land the player on loan this season but are also keeping tabs on Lille's Lucas Digne who has impressed this season.

The Potters are also keeping an eye on PSG's Bahebeck. Scouts have watched all 3 players this season and are doing so again in the coming weeks.(4)(10)Why would joe cole sign?hes a footballerYep, Joe Cole would definately want to sign for Stoke, so he could run around in midfield for 90 mins, and not risk any injury or bad passes because he could watch the ball sail over his head for the best part of 60 Mins, the other 30 mins the ball is out of play while they take corners, Goal kicks and wipe the ball for their throw-ins.
Last Stoke match apparently the ball was in play for just 58 mins, and was the least in League again, must be a joy to watch every week.Stoke don't play football yawn yawn yawn.........zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I take it your club couldn't beat them you mean :-)'Why would joe cole sign?hes a footballer'

Come back when you've mastered basic English

Leicester manager Pearson has been told by the clubs owners that his budget will be curtailed during the summer.

However, they have promised "significant" extra funds for the January transfer window, if Leicester are in contention for promotion.

Pearson will be given £2-3 million only in the summer to invest, although any revenue from player sales will be reinvested in the squad.

The owners have warned they expect a dramatic improvement next year, given their previous investment. Pearson's future remains in doubt, especially if Peter Reid is appointed as Director of Football in June as expected.(6)(12)Where did you here this? Were still in contention for the playoffs. . . Why would the board say this BEFORE the season has ended? Would his job still be under threat if we get promotion and would we still only get 2-3mil? I think not, so made up?'Only £2-3 million' to start with. You lot don't know you are born. Who knew mediocrity was soooo expensive. Bigger flops than WHU. Also, Peter Reid in?! I think the expression is 'ha ha ha ha ha'.Peter Reid from a Leeds fan stay way away mate

The planned takeover of Coventry City is close to collapse. The takeover was dependent on the Sky Blues remaining in the Championship.

With relegation all but certain, the bid from Hoffman and his consortium will be cancelled. This will leave Coventry facing administration and next season starting in League One on minus 10 points.(13)(2)I thought you only got points deducted if you enter admin during a season? Ed is this the case or not? {Ed001's Note - no, you get a points deduction anyway.}The takeover is not dependent on Championship survival. The investors (headed by Hoffman) are waiting to see where we are before making their decision. As you were, nothing to see here.What a load of tosh , they are waiting to see if we go down , cus then the value of the club will drop even more .


12 Apr 2012 12:15:04
Norwich City will made an auditious transfer bid of £6 million for Wolves winger Matt Jarvis. Aston Villa, Liverpool and Sunderland are also interested.(14)(14)An audacious bid eh! On his way to stoke apparently£6m way too much, but he is probably about Norwich standard.Norwich can get much better value for £6M, he has been capped once for England, but is too inconsistent for Lamberts liking, let him go to stoke I say where he can run the wing and win throw ins so they can chuck them in, got to be the worst team to watch
in Premier, Oh and by the way Stoke are below Norwich so they probably need him more than Norwich anyway.Im norwich fan and im not fan of the way stoke play. But you should give stoke more respect. We already have good wingers so we dont need him


12 Apr 2012 11:52:26
Modric will move to Chelsea this summer, having tired of the extra season at Spurs.

It might depend on Redknapp's future but Modric may leave anyway.

The fee is likely to be close to a whoping £40 million, with Chelsea paying a down payment of £10 million and the rest paid over 2 and a half years(15)(10)Why would he go to a club that's not even in europe?I doubt Modric would want to move to a team with no CL footballThink it will touch the £40 mill chelsea did offer last term? But I think chelsea will have to pay in full!Its called GREED OR MONEY

a host of clubs including tottenaham,newcastle,aston villa,stoke and sunderland are all in the race to sign man city winger adam johnson who is allowed to leave the club in the summer for the right fee(9)(3)Stoke tried to sign him previously with no luck- maybe things have changed but apparently he wants a move up to the N East so would fancy SunderlandOr Newcastle with Euro possibly champs league footie... better team too with better players. Sunderland will need to buy some stars in the summerHe might favour a move to the NE, but probably has some ambition. If the rumour was true, he would more than likely favour a move to Tottenham or Newcastle. From a neutral who is able to see the BPL table.Think Newcastle fans are getting a bit carried away.......had a great season but will lose a few players in the Summer to bigger clubs. Not sure why you would invent a story that he would rather go to Spurs or Newcastle when he has previously declared he would like to go to Sunderland but you know better eh. Not a Sunderland fan but seems his preferred destination.

Celtic to join League 1 if Portsmouth go bust.(10)(50)Piffle. IF (and it is an IF) the old Firm were to come into English football I cant imagine they would come into anything other than a reorganised Premiership. Money talks and there is precious little of it in League One.
For the record, I don't want either of them in the English league FULL STOP.I didnt mention Rangers. . . Lol an it would unfair to put them straight in to premAbsolute rubbish !Anyway who cares, they are not going to be voted into EPL, it takes a substantial majority from the member clubs and they are not at all interested in bringing them into English league.UEFA and FIFA rules prohibit a club leaving their home FA to join a league in another one.
This applies in the UK just as much as it would if a club wanted to leave the Dutch league to join one in Germany.
Never going to happen.As much as i dont see this happening , explain swansea and cardiffTwo reasons for Swansea and Cardiff play in English league.
1. Historical-became members long before current regulations came into place.
2. Technically Wales isn't a country in its own right-its regarded as a principality of England, like Monaco is of France-although Monaco has greater autonomy. Its all historical now and not relevant-but
further explains their logical place in the English leagues. Were Wales to get full independance, they'd have to leave. Berwick, which is in England, play in the Scottish leagues-for reasons of geographical convenience. Again, if Scotland got independence, they'd have to leave.
UEFA and FIFA rules strictly prohibit any club leaving its national league and decamping to another.
The only way around this would be a breakaway league-the much talked about Atlantic League-which would be regulated by UEFA not the national associations.

leicester to sign younes kaboul from
spurs in summer if they are promoted
also beckford will leave mills will stay
and 1 big name prem striker will join.(9)(60)Id agree with the big name being Jermaine Defoe, Michael Owen or Kenwyne Jones.
As you say. . . If were promoted bt i believe we canAnd how much do you think Kaboul will cost you .... he'll be £10 - 15m which I cant see Leicester affording.You/ll not make play offs end ofBig name striker Emile HeskeyCant afford it? If they needed to spend 15 mil they could and would an that person that just said we wont make playoffs, we need to gain 3 points on teams above who are not in form an were better on goal differenceI love it when Leicester fans come on here, it proper makes my day.
When are you going to realise you are not the team you lot think you are and at the end of the season, when you still in the championship, there will be a fire sale due to the new regulations with money that will start to being introduced.
What really an semis Leicester have cheated before with money and they still have not learnt there lesson. I really hope you lot go out of business. The picture on your lots faces would be priceless.Probably one of the most ridiculous rumours I've read. Tottenham won't sell Kaboul he's been one of their best players this season and no disrespect to Leicester he PSG were offering him a huge wage to move their last summer which he declined far more than Leicester would ever be able to affordWe got plenty of of money to buy who we want u numpty!! Fair enuf we have underperformed this year but were a club with a great ambition and plenty of might be another leicester h8r but we'll see who is laughing in the long run

LeicesterLadYou lot are deluded Leicester can afford anyone they want FACT!!!

LeicesterLadWhat kind of football fan wishes for a club to go out of business? I dnt really like portsmouth bt hopefully they survive {Ed025's Note - well said mate..I'm a Derby fan and I don't want Leicester, Portsmouth or even Forest to go out of business but when are clubs going to realise that they can't keep on having Sugar Daddies to bale them out when things get rough. Start living within your means or more clubs will be going bust and it will be a sad day when that happens. Just look at Rangers and smell the coffee!Because if a club goes into administration, which is cheating at the end of the day, gets a second chance to try and run there club in a financially stable way and then spend the money they did in the summer, knowing that the financial rules will be coming into affect shortly, they should be treated like any other business and made to stop trading.
Why should Leicester be allowed to get away with it?? They nearly went bust and rather than learning there lesson, they get themselves back into the exact same situation of spending far more than they bring in.
That is why I hope they go bust.So many envious people makes me laugh up lcfcHow have we got ourselves in the same situation? you know nothing! The reason we went into administration 10 years ago was coz we spent 32mil on a new stadium then got relegated that year.. it was the right thing to do as we had spent many back to back seasons in the premiership! So get your facts right Leicester have never overspeant on players we have always been a selling club and now we have a little bit of investment ppl are bitching and moaning! Why dont you concentrate on your clubs and do 1

LeicesterLadSo cause leicester have owners with money your jealous?People react to stupid rumours. Stupid rumours like 'Kaboul to Leicester'. It is laughable. You have spent a fortune and will finish outside the Play Offs.

If he does leave leave he will be hard to replace.If Lynch did leave for London he would go somewhere higher than MillwallSeeing how Lynch isn't from London then I don't see why this would be true

Gabby Agbonlahor to stay at villa not goto sunderland, as he wants to stay at the club throughout the rest of his career since he is a villa fan through and through.

Realistic football fan(21)(21)And he has no ambition.Realistic football fan, hes a great player, he wont stay at an underachieving club, he'l move on eventually to further his England chances maybe Everton, Arsenal or SpainHe said on sky sports some months ago he wants to mimic giggs at utd by stayin at villa his whole career. So ur both tlkin BSWe'l see when a top 10 team comes in for him, money talks . . .Thats crapFact: arsenal bid £15m for agbonlahor & agbonlahor declined the move.
Agbonlahor is part of Villa for the next 10 or so years.
villa for life - he isAnything can happen, may not like a new manager, may get an offer thats unrefuseable or when/if your relagated


11 Apr 2012 15:50:10
norwich and wba to battle for leeds star robert snodgrass in the summer.norwich also interested in aston villa miodfielder barry bannan(28)(19)To Repeat myself yet again, Lambert is no longer interested in Snodgrass, unless he was sold at a Real bargain price, after getting bids of £3 rejected by Leeds in the summer, we captured Pilkington from Huddersfield for £2M, which has proved to be a real winner who will only get better with premier league experience. Norwich have got a much younger player with much better sell on revenue,who could potentially get fill England Int honours in the next couple of seasons, Rumours have suggested Norwich have already rejected a £6M bid from LIverpool.Bannan is entering the Villa starting 11 now.
Leave it for a mini team like Norwich? no chance!Norwich Are looking at an awful lot of Scottish Internationals, Rhodes, Bannan, Snodgrass, Naismith and Fletcher! Why??? Lambert's doing?Rhodes yes
Bannan no
Snodgrass ship may have sailed as we signed Pilkington instead and we will be looking for pace, not Snodgrass' strength
Naismith we wont be looking at
Fletcher isnt a Lambert type signing so id be surprised, although i think him , Rhodes and Holt could be a very good top half strike force next season.Hilarious to see Villa regarding Norwich as a "minor" team-remind me which of the two teams is underachieving near the bottom of the league with a poor squad, unpopular Manager and which plays tedious football?
Not Norwich thats for certain.Snodgrass and Norwich is a non.When we made a bid of £3 Million, Bates turned it down.
He won't get anything like that for him now.
Tough luck Kenny, maybe someone will give you £1.5 mill for him?

LeicesterLad {Ed001's Note - I have no idea where he will be going, but Pearson isn't impressed with him or his attitude and intends to replace him in the summer.}Mills and Beckford is on the way to Leeds!You wish, even if they were to both leave if think they will go somewhere alot better than Leeds

Vaclav Kadlec set to sign for Stoke City for 7.5 mil rising to 8 mil plus 75k a week wages

Fuller wanting out to sign for a championship side, rumoured are Burnley, Derby, Leicester, Watford(12)(20)Stoke refused to break the wage cap for Crouch so why do it for Kadlec?Bolton are interested in FullerObviously influenced by football managerStoke's wage cap is £45k. But more importantly; Stoke already have a few strikers that can't score goals, why waist money on one more?

John Bostock is tired of being thrown out on loan by Harry Redknapp and is looking too gain a more settled career and former club palace or Charlton(6)(3)If he's tired or fed up he should grow up then and stop with all the bling and thinking hes a footballing god! bale and livermore sorted themselves out and so now should bostock or he could well be in danger of wasting a huge talent!He has been on loan to Swindon since 20th March..

Redknapp - England
Jordan - England
Bond - England
Allen - England
Modric - Man U
Adebayor - Back to City, who will sell him to anyone that can meet his wage demands!
Bassong - Will be sold
Bale - Real Madrid
Walker - Real Madrid
Gomes - Will be sold

Going to be an interesting summer at WHL...(15)(18)Walker is said to be interesting Man Utd. Can see a bit of a clear out in the Summer Kranjcar, Bassong, Gomes and maybe Defoe to Stoke which seems likely with Remy in and maybe a return for Carrick which has been rumoured.Just picking on what I think are a couple of holes,
Bale, it would be hard to turn down barcelona or madrid? but I think I still need at LEAST one more season at spurs!
Walker's rumour is just chip paper.
modric, I'm sure the little pearl will go? not so sure to man utd though? They can grumble all they want? They can even pretend to know more about spurs than a spurs fan? but modric's price would have to be more than what chelsea offered...just over the £40 mill mark! can the united of the north afford it? Who knows but I doubt it, when redknapp goes, a report will surface that spurs already have two very very god offers for the little pearl! one italian and the other spanish ( no idea who they are ) talking of redknapp, yes, jordon and bond will go but
allen will become part of the backroom staff along with ferdinand and one other former player? Tim sherwood will be promoted to assistant manager!Gomes won't be sold his contract will expite in summer, Bassong will be sold and it's unlikely that Adebayor will stay because of wage demands. The rest is simply speculation

Swindon looking at Grimsby forward Liam Hearn, who played with current swindon defender Aden Flint at Alfreton, where he was captain. Grimsby paid £30000 in the summer for him and swindon looking at making a bid of £250000(2)(10)That's weird. Considering that Grimsby rejected £500,000 from Peterborough for him in January.You can only play with 11 a side....the amount of people Swindon are interested in on various websites, you'd think they had 3 teams in the league. Where on earth do you Swindon fans get your stuff from....Yeah cos Grimsby can afford to turn down 500k, that would buy the entire squad!!!If you think someone is worth a certain price you are not going to accept less. Are you!?

liverpool are hoping to strike a dealwth fiorientina for winger maunuel vargas.(14)(9)But he's a good player not the normal Liverpool target are you sure?Reported interest surfaced before the Enrique and Downing deals. Lpool might still be looking for a winger, and Vargas is decent, but I doubt he'll move to Anfield.


11 Apr 2012 09:32:01

Burnley fullback Kieran Trippier is attracting interest from Wolves, Wigan and West Ham. The asking price from Burnley is apparently in the region of 2 million.(13)(4)Wolves are the only team in that trio that know what league they will be in next year so I doubt this one.They've only just sign him, think they ask for a bit more than that considering


11 Apr 2012 00:01:18
Burnley will sign Josh McQuoid, Jason Pearce, Kane Ferdinand and Joel Ward this summer.

Rodriguez will be sold for £6m to one of Newcastle, Sunderland, Southampton (if they are promoted) and Norwich.(8)(19)Spoke to Jason Pearce and Joel Ward after the match tonight. They will not be leaving.They won't have a choice, theyre wages are too high for League 1...the club can't turn down money like that for them. Also, that's if they even have a club to play for LOLI spoke to this and that and ronaldo is coming to swansea in the summer. you all talk BS saying you spoke to him n thatPearce & Ward wont be moving that far north, with their loyalty to pompey, they will prefer to play non league footie next season, in a wessex league, as Portsmouth will be liquidated and desolved from the football league by April 26th
