Football Rumours Archive October 16 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

West Ham in for –

Pugh, Pugh, B McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble & Grubb. Might go for Benn – as he can fill a number of positions.
  You guys with your rainbow rumours are piss your pants funny please keep going .no seriously don't stop or i'll die.anyway mc–scummbag–geedy to sunderland wgs fall out
  A number of sources at spurs have echoed the fact that Ramos is on his way, he has lost the confidence of the players and the board, Comolli will also be out with Jimenez of Newcastle coming in as Director of football, there has also been a few wild rumours done the lane that this is becasue Mike Ashley will use the sale of Newcastle to re–invest in a club closer to home, yes SPURS!
  Another nailed on fact is that Spurs are eyeing up Owen in a bargain £5 million deal, watch this one closey
  Expect various premier league teams including Newcastle & Sunderland to raid the cash strapped Hammers for cut price players

C. Cole – Stoke
Noble – Newcastle/Villa
Green – Sunderland
Ashton – Spurs/Man City
Gabbidon – West Brom
Upson – Blackburn/Bolton
Bellamy – everton (To replace Saha)
Expect Saha to link up with Keane at Sunderland.

Expect to see the Hammers in a relagation dogfight & don't be suprised to see Zola leave at the end of the season.
  Expect sunderland to spend big in January

Cisse – £10m
Green – £3m
Delph – £4m
O'Shea – £2.5m
Also expect Saha to link up again with Keane as a player/coach

Watch out for rising left back Micheal Liddle, he's from the same village as me. Expect him in the fringes of the first team this season.

Still only expect them to finish around midtable though –far too inconsistent.
  Birmingham, Fulham and Newcastle are battling to sign Burkina Faso's Moumouni Dagano who leads the African World Cup qualifying goalscoring chart.
  Regarding those Bungle, Zippy & George Rumours, theres no chance they will sign for West Ham, as Rafa Benitez wants Bungle up front as a target man. The bearded one thinks bungle would be the perfect foil for Torres. . meanwhile zippy has been earmarked for the right winger position as pennant isn't up to it. .that leaves George, who will go to Man U as back up to the back four, as rafa thinks he's too pink and porky, and his fluttering eyelashes might be a distraction to the other players. . Wages are rumoured to cost £1.00 a week and a banana for zippy, and bungle has demanded free shopping at asda for life. .
  Exclusive for all Forest fans. . .a reliable member of a top forum has seen Sam Allardyce at the City Ground. Now in what capacity would he come to our club??? I understand a Director of Football role is imminent with Calderwoods job being reassigned as First team coach. You heard it from Dan the Main Man.
  Another exclusive on Forest. . . .Carl Fletcher is to leave Palace and join Forest on loan until January when a deal will be completed. He is the experienced holding player that Calderwood has been looking for and is unhappy at lack of first team chances under Warnock. Dan the ever so Main Man
  I also went to school with mcgeady at St nininans since you no him so well, two names to give him miller and maloney, both better than him when they left, one cant get a game at sunderland the other rturned a year after, tell him the truth, hed dissappe down there
  Liverpool transfers

Jemaine Jenas–Tottenham 8million
mata–valencia 9million
David Wheater–Middelsbourgh 5million
Ashley Young–Aston Villa 12million
Damien Plessis–Monaco 4million
Sami Hyppia–psv edinhoven
Jemaine Pennant–Blackburn 7million
Nabil EL Zhar–Charlton Loan
Daniel Pancheco–Reading Loan
Ryan Flynn–Blackpool Loan
Andras Simon–Southend Loan
  To the person who posted the zippy george and bungle rumour, I also heard these rumours I also heard that rod is to become the new manager with jane and freddie as his assistants.
  Who is the heavily eyebrowed man in a FA Blazer travelling from Birmingham to Scunthorpe at 10.00 on Wednesday 15 October, sat opposite me as I travel to Doncaster from Sheffield? Having a very loud conversation on his phone about “Michael Woods, Neil Woods nephew, I’ve got some videos the manager would like to see, he’s at Chelsea and so might be available for loan”, and then talking about travelling down to Exeter, wants to see the team play. Who is at Exeter on Saturday?

Now I can get online, I find Grimsby Town are away at Exeter at the weekend, Neil Woods is Grimsby’s youth team coach. Looking up google images, the blazerati member wasn’t John Fenton, GTFC Chairman. But Grimsby’s rep to the FA is "Div 6 J M Elsom FCA (2001) Grimsby Town FC".

And tracking down some old images – it certainly was John Elsom, former Chair at Leicester, who joined the board at Grimsby in 2002.

Good to see he doesn’t feel the need to travel first class. Hope he doesn't have too many business conversations on the train.
  I am a school friend of Aiden McGeady, and was actually out with him weekend before last, at a nightclub on Bath st. He has had a fall out with Gordon Strachan since he was made to have lunch by himself after the Old Firm defeat. He was also barred from watching the video of the game. This has prompted him to seek for a new club. He had planned to move either next season or the season after but is now eyeing the premiership. Aston Villa have already been in contact and suprisingly Alex Ferguson has had a look, as he tried to sign him as a teenager. We shall see.
  Never fear West Ham fans!!! just heard through the grape vine that a group of businessmen from the East have decided to purchase the club and hopefully turn them into champions league material. They will pay 120million for the club and then will give Zola whatever he needs to bring in the players he wants over the next year we will be looking at buying:
Del Piero
Joe Cole
G.Buffon (he wants to work with Zola)
Diarra (from Madrid)
Wayne Bridge

Who you'll actually get is a few Serie B has beens and an ageing Spaniard (Tristan). Dream on Hammers, Bill Gates is going nowhere near your shoddy club. I hear rumours the Icelandics have already got it up on Ebay with a £1.50 reserve – Good luck!
PS) Kev Blackwell wants to know if that cheque's in the post?
  I reckon Zippy would make a good winger for West Ham. George could do the holding midfielder role. Bungle has been signed by Inter – so no hope there
  Not a rumour just a point – if west ham were purchased with loans payable on estimated revenue it doesn't matter how much the owner loses of his personal fortune that doesn't effect the club – if he needs the cash he would find a buyer 4 a great club – and if we go tits up those tossers from yorkshire would get nowt !
  Who Charlton get for January

Darren bent spurs 10m
javis wolves 5m
king hull 5m
cougo that guy from Ipswich
doyle reading 9m
hunt the one that looks like a saggy dog 8m
  There could be a few linked transfers in january or next summer involving serie A teams and arsenal, the players involved will be rosicky, hamsik, montolivo and aqaulani. arsenal will sell rosicky to either roma or fiorentina and buy either hamsik or aqaulani, montolivo to either roma or inter althought inter, fiorentina and roma also want hamsik.
  Jakub "Kuba" Blaszczykowski will sign for Liverpool for 11m with Dirk Kuyt leaving to join Ajax for 13m.
  Hereford have approached Watford about the availability of (in trouble) midfielder Al Bangura
On Loan until the end of November.

Looks very likely that the boy will be shipped out as punishment for leaving the country without the managers consent.
  In response to the man who named West Hams starting lineup, it is an impossibility as it is commonly known that

Steve McQueen is dead
Ken Livingston is an olympic cyclist–
Mark Fowler is dead –
Charlie Chaplin is dead–
Kim Jong Il has retired
Winston Churchill is dead–
Maggie Thatcher has retired due to a knee injury– Enoch Powell is dead–
John Major was never good enough to play for west ham and
Sooty/Sweep would never work as a footballing partnership– both are attacking midfielders

The up and coming nation is India so they will sign 10 indians for a small wage, sell sh!tloads of shirts to pay their wages and a fat polish goalkeeper (well, these polish get everywhere don't they. .)
  Man united will sign carlos tevez on a perminant 5 year contract for £28million this money will go to Kia who will use it to pay sheffeild united approx £15million out of court settlement. Kia will then buy the hammers for £100million.
  To the person who wrote this starting line up for West Ham, it has to be the worst rumour ever on this site. I mean Sooty and Sweep would never work upfront they far to similar for it to work, maybe if you put Bungle upfront as a target man it would work better

After January expect to see a starting line up of:

Steve McQueen
Ken Livingston – Mark Fowler – Charlie Chaplin – Kim Jong Il
Winston Churchill – Maggie Thatcher – Enoch Powell – John Major
Sooty – Sweep

They are hoping to challenge for the World Series before the North Africa World Cup in 2011.
  Well, well, well. Due to the outstanding start they have made, Hull manager Phil Brown will be rewarded with a £20m transfer kitty for January. 4 players are on his mind and they are: Stephen Hunt and Kevin Doyle from Reading for a combined fee of £13 million, Jermaine Pennant from Liverpool for £4 million and Jan Kromkamp from PSV for £3 million.

In other news:
Everton star Yakubu may well be moving to Italian side Roma for £16 million.

Jason Koumas will move to Cardiff from Wigan as part of a deal to bring Joe Ledley to the JJB, who will fill the hole left by Antonio Valencia.

Yaya Toure to Juve, not Arsenal, for £10 million.

No deal for Tevez from Utd so when they sell Arshavin, expect Zenit to swoop for the Argentine wizard for £28 million

The Matador
  Troubled West Ham, don't fear. My friend's, Mum's tampon is Gordon Brown's best friend and he says that instead of bailing out all the world's banks, G7 have decided to make an uber consortium to buy out West Ham United.

They will appoint Warren Buffet as the chairman and replace Zola with a chequebook. Eggbet Magnusson will be brought back in for no reason.

After January expect to see a starting line up of:

Steve McQueen
Ken Livingston – Mark Fowler – Charlie Chaplin – Kim Jong Il
Winston Churchill – Maggie Thatcher – Enoch Powell – John Major
Sooty – Sweep

They are hoping to challenge for the World Series before the North Africa World Cup in 2011.
  Arsenal – Arda Turan – Possible move in January Ibrahim Afelley– Possible, Liverpool also want him Diego – Probably will move in January Thierry Henry – No, he said he wants to improve his game there Fabregas – No he won't move, but if he does move for some reason, we've got Fran Merida, Aaron Ramsey, Amaury Bischoff, Francis Coquelin, Denilson, Samir Nasri, Thomas Rosicky, Abou Diaby, Alex Song.
  Supprise supprise Real Madrid are already preparing yet another summer saga over the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo. They are prepared to pay Man Uniteds asking price of 70 mil. Man City will not come close to signing him as Ronaldos dream has always been to play for Madrid, a move to City would be a huge step downwards. Nani will be promoted into Ronaldos role and another winger will be signed as Giggs is getting on a bit now. Expect one of Jesus Navas, Joaquin and David Silva to be signed in the summer. No new strikers will be signed this summer unless any of our current ones leave as we have world class partnership of Adebayor and van Persie and Eduardo soon to return from injury. We also have very promising Carlos Vela and Nicklas Bendtner. An experienced central midfielder will be signed, as if we do come up short this season then that will be where. Rosicky will not be sold as he is a very good, atttacking player who brings good experience to the squad. Neither will the defence be added to as we have one of the best centre back duos in the world in Gallas and Toure and we have the two best full backs in the prem in Clichy and Sagna. The only other area we could add to is goal keeper as Almunia does not look strong enough. Rob Green, Kameni and Frey could all be possibilities.

  With Alonso AND Yaya Toure Both Claiming They Could Both Be On Their Way To Juventus Expect Wenger To Turn His Attention To Cambiasso.
