 I have 2 cousins that are squad players one for Tranmere the other for a large London club. They often like to have bragging matches about who knows the best gossip, so here goes.

Henry is Gone, it may not be released yet, but put money on it if you can get the odds. All I'll say is Ole (yes I know I can't spell. Or can I? ).

Sanchez is already being lined up to be replaced at Fulham after his talk to the players sounded more like a Sunday Pub team strategy than a Premiership team talk. Pearcy is the front runner.

Drogba is staying at Chelsea after he has been promised extra "bonuses" by Roman. I am not sure what they are but it sounded dodgy (some Russian gas pipeline? ).

Rafa to take on the soon to be vacated Madrid role. I Cappello looks like getting the title, but everyone one knows he stubled into it with Barca's help. And Rafa has spat the dummy over money, a problem he won't have at Madrid.


 Preston today completed the signing of kawl hawley from Carlisle. Preston are know finally attracting players to come to us.

with 8 million for Nugent we will be able to buy some good players.

izale McLeod (1 million )

billy sharp ( 2 million )

kris comons (free)


naython tyson

Jermaine Easter

 Roy Caroll is likely to sign for Sunderland for free so is arjen de zeeuw, Claus Jensen Keano will also try to get karel poborsky out of retierment and he will also try to get Bellamy but unlikely. they will also try to get Nugent.

Birmingham are suppose to have £20 million to spend and they will try to get jimmy floyd hasslebaink, damien francis, marlon king, Rob hulse and jagielka


 I've got a friend who's a sports journalist for a daily paper (mostly freelance stuff) and he has given me a list of rumours the papers have got from their differing sources (Agents, Club staff etc).

Sam Allerdyce will move for Celtic's Bobo Balde after failing to sign Ben Hiam.

Roy Keane will sign Billy Sharpe if he fails to sign Nudgent (who prefers Everton or Villa apparently)

Man City officials want to cash in on Micah Richards before a new manager in named in fear of the club sale not going through. Several clubs are interested.

Middlesbrough will sign Geremi and Hotye if the players agree to the moves.

Derby and West Brom are in the market for several Scottish based players, Craig Beattie, Steven Naismith, Steven Whittiker and Russell Anderson being the players most likely to move.

Birmingham are activley seeking strikers, Carlton Cole, Freddy Eastwood, Kenny Miller and Luke Moore are all under consideration.

David Healy is wanted by Fulham and Sunderland.

Koumas and Kamara are wanted by a few clubs, Kamara fancies moving to London, Koumas fancies Everton or Villa.

other rumours he was telling me about are mainly foreign based players who are being 'hocked' around English clubs and the old firm, these include Nigel De Jong, David Rozenthal, DeMarcus Beasley, Johan Vonlanthen, Landon Donovan and Roy Makaay


 Shea Campbell (Dungannon Swifts FC) is flying to Glasgow this weekend, for a trial with Rangers.



Freddy Eastwood will sign for Hearts, recommended by Steven Frail for his proven goalscoring ability. Eastwood wants a crack at European qualification and the possibility of medals.


 Manuel Fernandes to sign soon after the Under 21 championship for a fee of 9 million rising to 12 million.


 David "Long Pockets Short arms" Moyes will sign max 3 players .

1. Phil Jags (4 Mil)

2. Baines (3 Mill)

3. Fernandes (Year Loan)

Be honest lads


 Man United will not splash too much cash on a new striker, the most probable is Fabio Quagliarella from Sampdoria for a meagre 8 million (meagre for Man United )


 Wigan Athletic look set to announce the signing of ex–Chelsea full–back Mario Melchiot on Friday, after the Dutchman only spent one year in France with Rennes

= C–D–F=


 If Tim Cahill moves to pompy I Richie Day will wear a red shirt because it will never happen


 Samuel Eto'o will arive at Arsenal for 35 million this summer as he wants to work under Asene Wenger and play with Henry, Fabregas and Gilberto.

That will be the only signing apart from future prospects.


 Rangers to sign USA attacking mid/ striker Landon Donovan. he's more than happy to join winger DaMarcus Beasley who's move to Rangers will be announced in the next week.


 My ancle works at Man City as a groudsman ands he saw Niel Warlock being shown aroud yestrday.


 I know this website is mainly for, transfers, but I have an amazingly interesting fact for all fans supporting West Ham&Sheffield United. Despair and hope to the respective teams. I have found by looking at the fixture lists for both clubs that whenever West Ham have a home match so do Sheffield United, this is also exactly the same for the away games. Now this shows incredible unorganisation by the premier league. Sheffield United fans can take hope from this as it looks more increasingly possible that they will be reinstated to the Premier League. (j#m)

 To Goonerman. (just to clear up a matter I don't call them Arsenalnal. it is obviously a problem with the site as it has hapened with many other rumours). Firstly Gilberto will never leave this year. He is Arsenal through and through, and even though he is in demand Wenger will keep him as our holding midfielder who can also play centre back. Every team wants a Gilberto style player. and you can't get much better. Although Wenger has expressed his positive opinions about Nolan he still would not come to Arsenal for the reason he is not good enough and he isn't the type of player to join our passing style system.

I totally agree. Owen is a poacher. and a goalscorer. and a top quality player. I never said I didn't think this. however as he is English he will cost far too much for the amount of money Wenger wants to spend on a striker. and even if he was for a low price. we would be outpriced by other teams in demand for him. As for our missed chances. with Henry and van Persie out and a huge lack of confidence we can work on cleaning this problem up, and I doubt Wenger will be worrying about this. Also Owen was not happy at Newcastle but with Big Sam coming into Newcastle and him having a meeting with Owen, Michael likes what he heard and might stay at Newcastle.

Again, I agree with you about Wenger buying trouble makers and moulding them into good players (van Persie, Adebayor, Vieira) however, when we bought these players they had the right attitude rather than a player who doesn't play as a team player.

Just to clear up I said 1 of Briand, Gouffran, Renato, Babel and Bojan and at the clubs they are at who wouldn't join Arsenal. And yes work permits will be a problem. and you mentioned Vela. y wouldn't we do the same as we did with him. Wenger would not make this be a problem.

If you watched the youth FA Cup semi final against Man United you would know that Barazite is a good player. but too slow and uneffective to be in The Arsenalnal first team even after 3 or 4 more years of work. He was by far the worst player on the pitch in this game. Gouffran has bags of pace and a great finishing record. And don't forget Bendtner. he might stay at Arsenal for years and keep Barazite miles away from regular first team football so don't expect him to hang around like Aliadiere has. Oh and Randall is a centre Midfield often partnering Merida in the reserves, so why you are likening wingers to them I don't know.

Henry might be staying at Arsenal, and he refuses to say whether he is or isn't leaving so get your facts straight. And Trezeguet is only 29 and for a very cheap price he would be a bargain. Also bear in mind strikers hit their peak at around 27 so he is still ripe.

–+ AFC+ –


 Juan Roman Riquelme will move to Everton on a season–long loan move IF a move for Manuel Fernandes, either on loan or permanent, cannot be concluded.


 Jamaine Easter to reject Leicester in favour of Plymouth, Martin Allen decides that Mk Dons attacker Mcloed not worth the £2 million price tag, and has now lost interest especially as Billy Sharpe has agreed terms with a Swap with Fryatt + 1.2 Million to be announced soon, (waiting on Fryatt's terms with Scunthorpe)


 David Moyes seems to be interested in half the England Under-21 squad now. Before it was known of his interest in Baines, Nugent and Richardson but not he is believed to have been impressed by James Milner, Leroy Lita and Justin Hoyte, who have become his 3 alternatives to the other 3, so if Moves for Richardson, Nugent and/ or Baines fail then he will move for Milner instead of Richardson, Lita instead of Nugent and Hoyte instead of Baines.


 "who will struggle to split the McManus/ Pressley partnership in the centre"

Have you watched Celtic since January?

Pressley is so far off the pace he is the confirmed worst offender when it comes to fouls for Celtic since January.

Lets not forget a 36 year old man who plays for Dunfermline pssed all over him in the cup final.

Kennedy to come through and star alongside McManus.

Bjarnasson to get his chance on the left side of midfield as mcGeady aren't kicked a ball since he scored his new contract.

Stevie Bhoy.


 Norwich City manager Peter Grant has been given a significant amount of money to spend on players (without the sale of Earnie).

In the next three weeks he expects to bring in 5 players before preseason training begins in July.

This information has come from one of the current squad. Obviously I can't disclose who it is.
